Hi awesome theme!

I have one question though. Ive added 4 pages on my theme, but you can scrool between them. It really takes the name “one page” out of it. How do I configure it, so I can scroll up and down between my pages, and make it one page? :-)

Best Regards

dabaman

Hi,

you need to create an empty page and set it’s template as a ‘Homepage’. Then, under ‘Settings>Reading’ you set this page to be your ‘Front page’. And now you can use ‘Homepage>Add new section’ link inside your dashboard to add sections to that single, scrolling page (you can paste in the content you have inside your regular pages). Check out the documentation, everything is described there. Also, it would be the best if you import the demo content, it would make it easier for you to start building your own site.

Cheers.

Thank you. I have done that now, but I will send an email to you, as it does not work for me, and I think I am going to need some more help…

Is there an easy way for me to place links on the homepage sliders? I noticed the buttons have links and work well, but did not see any options in the admin to be able to add a link. Let me know.

dabaman

Hi,

inside visual editor you have an ‘Add a button’ icon (last in the first row), just click on it and it will add code for your button. You just need to add a link inside brackets. For example:

[button link="#portfolio"]Go to portfolio[/button]

or

[button link="http://www.google.com"]Open Google[/button]

Cheers.

Hi

A couple of questions please, just to confirm my understandings.

1. To publish to a section on the home page, is the content a post or a page?

2. Can pages like ‘Contact Us’ be taken off the home page and accessed via a conventional link like domain.name/contact from home page menu item?

Cheers Keith.

dabaman

Hi Keith,

1. The content is a custom post type. You would go to ‘Homepage > Add new section’ inside your wp-admin.

2. Absolutely, you can display any section as a separate page. To do so, inside ‘Appearance > Menu’ add a link to your contact section from the ‘Homepage’ panel (if you can’t see it, click on the ‘Screen Options’ tab at the top and make sure that the ‘Homepage’ checkbox is selected).

Cheers.

Hello, how would I go about changing the logo size on the pages so that it doesn’t resize to the smaller (original) size?

dabaman

Hi,

the only logo resizing that occurs is when you’re viewing on a resolution that is less than 1000px wide (try resizing your browser to see it in action), necessary for logo to fit inside the header at the top. Is that’s what you’re referring, then paste this css inside ‘Custom CSS’ field inside the options page:

#logo {
max-height: none;
max-width: none; 
}

Cheers.

I’ve been customizing the fonts in Jumper, but am not able to change the font for the blog page titles no matter what I do.

I even altered the code in index.php, replacing the h2 wrapper with a span tag with a unique style, but no luck.

This technique works on single.php, but doesn’t work on index.php. Any thoughts?

dabaman

Hi,

that’s because the title text is inside a link on the index page. So, use something like this:

.blog_title h2 a {
    font-family: 'Your font';
}
Default-user

Thanks, that did the trick!

Hi,

I’m interested to your theme but i have a problem. When i visit to blog’s pages current_page_parent is not working?

Working on main blog page : http://prntscr.com/1s21eu Blog’s sub pages (post or categories) : http://prntscr.com/1s21jl

If you resolve to this i’m ready for buy.

dabaman

Hi,

I know, it was my design decision to leave out the ribbon on those pages (so that visitors know that they can go back to posts index page if they click on the blog link). :) But I’ll change this in my next update. If you purchase the theme, please email me and I’ll send you the css code that fixes this right away, because I’m not going to release an update only for this since this is only a small change.

Cheers.

Hello. Can you change the Green Banner type of icon button? I see you say you used iconSweets? Is this customizable, or at least the color? I looked through most of your comments and the links to websites using this theme all have that western looking green navigation button unchanged. I like everything but this.

dabaman

Hi,

icons do not change when switching to another color scheme – they always stay gray (when it comes to graphics, only the ribbons change their color). If you wan’t to change icon’s color, you’ll have to do it manually by editing their graphic files.

Cheers.

Default-user

Thank you. And I see on the first page of comments that the template did not support Portfolio Categories….is this still the case?

dabaman

Since v2.1 you can attach a category to a portfolio post, but this is only used if you want to display more than one portfolio. For example, a half of your portfolio items you place in a category called ‘web design’, and the other half in a category called ‘illustrations’. Then, you display two different portfolios using the following shortcodes: [portfolio category=”web design”] and [portfolio category=”illustrations”]. Categories can’t be used for item filtering though (like Quicksand or Isotop).

Default-user

ok thanks. Would you happen to have an example site where they have used this technique with your template?

dabaman

I don’t have any examples, but the other portfolios would be in the same form as the one you can see on my demo, only difference being they will display different pictures/videos. So, for example, you can have several homepage section, each one with it’s own portfolio.

Hi dabaman

Love the site, but I’ve had a problem. The Google Map is no longer working.

I’ve checked and it’s effecting Chrome, Firefox & Safari. It’s all setup correctly in the Jumper Options page, and I think must have stopped working when I updated the theme…?

I rely on a bit of foot traffic, so it’s quite important.

Here’s the site: http://www.norfolkfilmandvideotransfers.co.uk/#contact

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

it looks like that scripts are being broken for some reason. I would suggest that you download the latest version of my theme (v2.1) – which is also responsive – from your download page at TF, install it and see how it goes. A few tips before you do this:

- I’ve removed the support for ‘Nivo Slider for WordPress’ plugin since the author stopped supporting it a while ago (it might be that this plugin is causing the problems on your site) and it’s not responsive, so please disable this plugin before or after installing the new version. Instead, I’ve implemented the plugin directly into the theme – so you’ll see a ‘Nivo Slider’ link inside your wp-admin where you can add slides (check the new documentation for guidance). The down side is that you’ll need to re add you images once again (the old ones won’t show)

- After updating, go to ‘Appearance>Menus’ and check ‘Primary Navigation’ and the bottom, and also go to ‘Appearance>Theme Options’ and just click ‘Save changes’ button at the bottom.

If all this doesn’t help, try to disable all additional plugins/scripts that you installed – it might be that some is causing the conflict.

Good luck!

Hi

Thanks for getting back to me, I (finally) got round to doing as you say and all worked, so thanks!

However, for some reason now images don’t appear properly in Homepage’s “sections” – check it out here: http://www.norfolkfilmandvideotransfers.co.uk/#cinefilm-transfers

They now appear as a tiny grey circle…

Any idea why this might be?

Also, the Icons have vanished…check out: http://www.norfolkfilmandvideotransfers.co.uk/#contact There used to be a map & phone icon next to the address & tel number on the right….
dabaman

Hi,

this problem is caused by mod_pagespeed for some reason. You can see that your site looks fine when this mod is turn off – http://www.norfolkfilmandvideotransfers.co.uk/?ModPagespeed=off . According to this page, it can be simply disabled by adding ModPagespeed off line in a .htaccess file. Alternatively, contact your hosting provider to turn this off for you.

Cheers.

Default-user

Thanks

And thanks for the quick response, your suggestion worked and it’s nearly fine… However…now the menu tabs on the left have messed up… http://www.norfolkfilmandvideotransfers.co.uk/

At least, it has on Firefox..

dabaman

Your logo is too big, it’s pushing the menu links down. Resize it to 180×112px and it’s going to look fine. :)

Hi Dabaman, First of all thank you for your work. I just bought your template which is exactly what I wanted. For cons, I have a bug on iPad in portrait mode with the menu. By default it is open and does not want to close. It does the same thing with your demo. In addition, it is possible that it automatically closes if I click outside the menu or at least after clicking a link? Thank you for your answer

dabaman

Hi,

it seems that I’ve made a small mistake inside css file. I’ll submit an update today that fixes this, though I’m not sure when it will be approved because of the holidays.

If you don’t want to wait, you can fix it by yourself quite easily by going to ‘Appearance>Editor’. Inside the opened file (style.css) scroll to about 90% down until you see this line:

@media only screen and (max-width: 768px) {

change 768 into 767, and update the file. Menu should be working fine after that.

About the other thing – sorry, the menu can be toggled only by clicking on the top ribbon.

Cheers.

Thank you for the quick return
For the menu, I finally added this snippet of code in the “footer.php” file and it works as I want. So this is perfect. If it helps someone…

$(”#menu_list a”).click(function(){
$(”#menu_list”).slideToggle();
});

Default-user

I’m really sorry but my previous fix put a toggle on the menu in normal mode so I had to find another solution I have tested several times and it works.
Here is the code I modified the file footer.php
$(”#mobile_nav”).click(function(){
$(“nav”).addClass(“mobile”);
$(”#menu_list”).slideToggle();
$(this).toggleClass(“active”);
$(”.mobile #menu_list a”).click(function(){
$(”#menu_list”).hide();
});
});

Firstly, great theme! My question is how can I adjust where the copyright info sits on the left side, as far as height from the bottom, etc? Due to a long business name, it currently gets cut off by the social icons and/or the bottom of the screen. Thanks.

dabaman

Hi, try adding this css:

@media only and (min-width:1001px) {
ul#social_icons {bottom:120px;}
}

Just change 120 to your own need.

dabaman

Sorry, I made a small mistake and I can’t edit it now. You nee to add screen after word ‘only’ in the first row.

dabaman

And for the cut off by the bottom of the sceen problem, just log out and it will look fine – that’s wp admin bar at the top pushing the text down.

Default-user

Thanks. It didn’t seem to make a difference to location, even when I changed it to about 240. I am not using the social icons, would this be why?

dabaman

Can you please post or email me your site link?

Hi dabaman

My site: http://www.norfolkfilmandvideotransfers.co.uk/

Is it possible to add a Google+ Social Profile, as there are options for lots of others…?

Thanks again for the excellent theme.

dabaman

Hi,

I will add a Google+ icon in my next update, but this is going to have to wait a bit because I’m currently occupied with some other work.

Default-user

Cool, thanks for the update.

dabaman

Hi,

I’ve updated the theme – you can download the latest version from your download page at TF.

Hi again.

Great that you were able to add G+...feels cheeky to ask…but any chance of a YouTube icon as well?

Hello,

When I view this on my iPhone 5 it is not responsive.

This was taken this morning.

Hi,

only my WordPress version is responsive. The screenshot you attached shows the site template version, which unfortunately is not responsive.

Hi dabaman

Having a major issue with my site, so a quick response would be awesome:

My site: http://www.norfolkfilmandvideotransfers.co.uk/

I’ve just noticed that although the site functions brilliantly for me when logged into WP, as soon as I log out or someone else accesses the site, the Nivo Slider doesn’t work properly and the menu functions don’t work either.

I’m not sure how long this has been a problem, but obviously could be losing me a lot of business as customers can’t even get to the contact page properly…..

Please help

dabaman

Hi,

first check if you have an empty page for your homepage, and that it’s template is set to be ‘Homepage’. If you don’t have that page, create one, and do the template thing. Then go to ‘Settings>Reading’ and set that page to be your ‘Front page’. That should sort the navigation issue.

I’m not sure what’s going on with the slider, for some reason the plugin doesn’t load on your site. Try turning off ‘Quick Cache’ plugin, I have a feeling that might help.

Default-user

Hi

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I do have an empty homepage with the right template.

I have fixed the issue, because in ‘Settings>Reading’ I had selected Posts page: “Blog” – when I change that to “Select” it seemed to fix the issue briefly, but it’s gone wrong again now.

Also I don’t have the ‘Quick Cache’ plugin, but I do have WP Fast Cache. I turned that off, but no joy either….

Any other ideas?

dabaman

It is some caching issue, I can see in your site’s code, but it says ‘Quick Cache’ there. The cached version is renewed every hour, and for a brief moment when this was happening your site looked fine. So, if it’s not caused by a plugin, then it’s probably on a server side. Try contacting your host to disable this.

Default-user

Thanks dabaman

The first line of my WP config was: ”?php define(‘WP_CACHE’, true);” I changed that to false, and it seems to fix the issue.

dabaman

Great :)

Hi there

Just bought your theme and it is great thanks.

I have one issue though when trying to modify it; I need to change the menu_bg.jpg image to something which will extend beyond the left had side of the screen (so the left hand menu column is one complete image). Currently the original image is 200px wide. If I replace this with an image wider than 200px, it pushes right over the content column (with the left hand edge of the edge in the same position).

I need the right hand edge of this image to stay flush, with the image extending out to the left. Can you tell me how I might be able to do this?

Cheers. Jason

dabaman

Hi Jason,

you can’t do it that way. The entire menu column is 200px wide, so every background image you set for it will have to be inside that dimension. I’m not sure what you mean that background image pushes the content column – background images can’t push anything, they are in the background. :)

The solution for your problem would be to use :before pseudo class to create another element bellow the menu column (and expanding to the left), which will carry your new background. I’ve prepared a css code that will do this, but make sure that you place it at the bottom of style.css – don’t put it inside ‘custom css’ code box on your setting page, for some reason it doesn’t work when you use empty quotes.

@media only screen and (min-width: 1001px) {
    #menu { background:none; } /* remove old bg */
}
#menu:before {
    width: 1000px; /* same width as your new bg */ 
    content:" ";
    background: url(http://placehold.it/300&text=bg) repeat; /* path to your image */
    position: absolute;
    z-index:-1;
    right: 1px;
    top: 0;
    height:100%;
}

@media only screen and (max-width: 1000px) {
    #menu:before { display:none; } /* remove bg when menu is at the top */
}

Cheers.

Thats brilliant, works perfectly. Thank you!

re ‘pushes right’; I meant to say the image flows over the content column (with its left edge fixed on the side) :)

Thanks again for the help.

This is the most basic question and I apologize.

I cannot seem to upload the theme. It says the style.css stylesheet is missing. When i went to do it manually, i couldn’t do that either. I unziped it and looked in the files and yup…not there.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
