Could you please update the Revolution Slider to the latest version. We are having an issue with youtube videos that I think was fixed with their latest release but the version that comes with the theme is about 3 updates behind. Thank you.

A couple mobile wrap up edits – www.balispaportland.com

I have a child theme … not sure why my edits aren’t showing.

In mobile I want to: 1) remove extra space above and below logo 2) remove bullets on slider 3) remove background image to the right of the page title

This is what I’ve tried: #header { height: 70px !important ; } #header #logo {margin-top: 5px; margin-bottom:5px;} #logo { margin-bottom: 4px !important ; padding-top: 0px !important ;} .tp-bullets {display:none !important;} .page-title { background-image: none !important;}

Can you help me rap this one up?

Hi,

Doesn’t it work? Also, have you placed it in @media for appropriate screen size?

Thanks!

I’m not sure what’s going on.But yes, the code is inside a @media

To be exact: /***************** * ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******** MOBILE LANDSCAPE * ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- */ @media only screen and (min-width: 480px) and (max-width: 767px) { #header { height: 70px !important ; } #logo { margin-bottom: 4px !important ; padding-top: 0px !important ;} .tp-bullets {display:none !important;} .page-title { background-image: none !important;} } /******************** * ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * MOBILE PORTRAIT * ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- */ @media only screen and (max-width: 479px) { #header { height: 70px !important ; } #header #logo {margin-top: 5px; margin-bottom:5px;} #logo { margin-bottom: 4px !important ; padding-top: 0px !important ;} .tp-bullets {display:none !important;} .page-title { background-image: none !important;} }

It would seem there was a long delay in the code updating so I’m part of the way there. The .page-title is removed along with the .tp-bullets.

Obviously, my code for removing the extra spacing in the header and /or the top and bottom of the logo is wrong. Can you give the correct code to replace it with?

Will do tomorrow morning :) Thank you for your patience!

Hi again,

Try this:

#header {padding-top:85px; padding-bottom: 35px; height:auto !important;}
#header #logo {margin:0px; bottom:0;}

Use your values.

Thahnks!

Getting ready to purchase and install this theme. Are there any issues with renaming the theme folder prior to activating? So instead of themes/kickstart (or whatever it is) have it themes/customname ?

Hi,

There is no problem with that. But you have to do this before uploading a theme, which is important, otherwise you may encounter issues and ‘file not found’ messages.

Thank you!

Great, thanks for the fast response! 1 last question. Anyway to easily use the “Roughage” font in this theme? Would like all the titles (pages and posts) to use this font. We will be creating a website promoting a new movie (this is their primary font)...

MNKY Author

Hi,

Here is a nice tutorial how to use fonts: http://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/using-font-face/ .

You have to download the font, put it in folder, and use css same as in tutorial, then specify new font family for element you want.

Thanks!

On http://citystudio.nl/contact/ the [background] contents gets cut off when using a right side bar. In this case the last letter, N gets cut.

If i make the text longer, the text gets cut off on the right side because the right sidebar is there. What is the way to avoid this and make the text fully seen on the [background]?

Thanks

Hi,

Background shortcode is meant for full width only.

Customization for this is covered in one of our support forum posts, I can post a link later if you can not find it.

Hi there,

Does your latest version (2.2) support vector icons in Safari? Right now I just noticed something, I looked at the website I built last year with Kickstart 2.1 and noticed that it does not render the SVG graphics properly at all, if I’m lucky I get an ASCII box…

MNKY

Hey,

Icons are made to display in all browsers. Do they display on our live demo?

Also are you on Multisite network or any other third party plugins installed have font icons?

Thanks!

Yes, I noticed they display on your demo in Safari. I have Shortcodes Ultimate installed as well.

Hi I have been using this theme for a while, and only recently noticed that it is quite intensive on resources, I checked with pingdom speed test tools, and see that it loads a lot of information. your test site is actually 4.4MB and the icon file moon.svg is over 1MB in size. Even if using W3TC or WP Super Cache the performance does not increase much.

I was wondering if you could help me understand which would be the best way to optimise the performance of your theme. Best Regards, Nikita

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hi,

We are not using any performance tools for test page.

You can try using gzip and compression tools to reduce size, but the main browsing experience of the website will still be depending on hosting speed.

Regarding icon font files, they contain 1266, this is the reason for their size.

Thank you!

TheAlikA

Could you help me with an example of a plugin or software which would compress the files, or how to go about gziping the files.

Also can I remove the Icons that I am not using, can the script only load the ones I am using rather than all the 1266 icons?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I just ran a test on my site and it says the theme is taking over 6 seconds of load time on my site. Are others experiencing this amount of load time? It isn’t my server that’s slow, it’s the theme. I have other wordpress installs running on the same server and they’re fine.

Default-user

My site now takes 46+ seconds to load. I’ve disabled ALL plugins to see if that changed anything. If you do a Pingdom speed test, http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt for balancedathletics.com, you’ll see that dynamic-style.php in the kickstart folder is taking over 30 seconds to load. Please help!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hello,

You can do same test from our demo server, ehich has exactly same theme as you have: http://mnkythemes.com/kickstart/. As you can see it is about 2s to load with all the iconic font files an dynamic style.

It must be some issue with server configuration. Try tunning WP Optimize free plugin on your website, also try reinstalling a theme. We will be updating theme options (which loads dynamic stylesheet) soon, it will also add some performance.

We have another method to call in dynamic style; if steps above do not help, we can instruct you to make these changes.

Thanks!

Just read the post above, seems I am not the only one experiencing load time issues. This is an Awesome theme with awesome functionality, but it needs to be speed optimised. If there is anything that can be a priority for the next update, it would definitely be Speed, reducing file size, combining JS & CSS files etc.

I work in South Africa, we actually have capped internet, and some people here have slow internet, so for me this is a very big issue.

Thanks for your response. I love working with your theme!

Thank you for your feedback, it is very valuable.

I was looking for some solution, including g-zipping, here is a plugin example on CodeCanyon: http://codecanyon.net/item/fresh-performance-cache/7011224 . Probably there are more out there, if you do some search, hopefully it would help.

Hi, Love your theme!

But since your latest version I have trouble with fonts. The content disappears when I use Google Font from your admin panelen, eg: Roboto, Lobster.

It works when I used regular fonts like “Arial, Helvetica, Sans-serif” but when I change to “Roboto” or “Open Sans” the content disappears. It returns sometimes when I have it on hover.

What’s the problem? How can I fix this?

Best Regards, Niklas

We have put it on hold, because it seemed like one user issue and we were not able to replicate it. Now we will try to investigate the cause.

Could you possibly help us with this, since you can replicate it? Please try selecting only one google font and tell, if issue appears then? Trying to figure out, if this is due to multiple google font calls.

Thank you!

Hi again, Yes, the issue appears even when I only use one font..

And one last thing to make process faster. Sorry to ask you this, but since we are not able to replicate the issue on any of the test servers, it is hard to find the cause.

Could you possibly:

1. Disable slider revolution, and see, if it still happens. (It also calls google fonts, if this options is enabled)

2. Try adding the font via google instructions directly to the header file and applying it to the menu element in style.css for example and see what happens.

Thanks!

Hi Again! It’s my pleasure to help you.

2. I have tried that but it doesn’t work. Same problem, content disappears.

Thank you for your help! Seems that it is not related to method we use to embed google fonts. Must be conflict somewhere else then. We will investigate and keep you updated.

It seems like a bug that affects some chrome users: http://blog.typekit.com/2014/02/04/chrome-bug-affecting-web-fonts/ Try adding this to Custom CSS in theme options or to the end of the style.css:
    body
    {
    -webkit-animation-duration: 0.1s;
    -webkit-animation-name: fontfix;
    -webkit-animation-iteration-count: 1;
    -webkit-animation-timing-function: linear;
    -webkit-animation-delay: 0.1s;
    }

    @-webkit-keyframes fontfix{

    to { opacity: 1; }

is there a possibility for underline links to be applicable only for pages and not for header and footer?

if it can not be applied in custom CSS separately for pages and header&footer, can it be applied manualy for links on the pages?

MNKY

Sure. Add this (right after the previous code, not before) to avoid underline in header and footer:

#header-wrapper a, #footer-wrapper a, #copyright-wrapper a {text-decoration:none;}

... and is there a way to exclude underline links (added in custom CSS) just for a certain page?

or to have underline links just for a certain page (not to be added through custom CSS)?

Add page class before the code (each page has its own ID):

.page-id-2784 a {text-decoration:none;}

Hi,

It should not take so long to load the slide for sure. Have you imported the slider? Try creating new slider, it should load much faster. Also try enabling Lazy Load feature in slider settings, when you create a new one.

Hi,

What do you mean by linking the logo? It is linked to the home page by default.

can it be linked to some other page instead of home page (on the same site)?

MNKY

Only manually in code, you have to add static link for the logo div, and it has to be done in all header-..php files.

Thanks!
