Got another question. I am attempting to lose the search function and button. I will replace it with 2 buttons that will simply link off site. Whenever I try to replace that code with my code it goes hay-wire. Here is what I have for code. For now I have replaced the image link in the CSS and my image show. However, I am having problems placing the links and I am certain I need to lose the “ code. Can you give me a hint? Thanks for all your help.

    Just about to buy…

    Can the Rotating slider images be linked to other pages… eg a user clicks on the main image, and it can accept a link or javascript command… e.g. lightbox window opens.

    I want to use them as screenshots of an application – so the front rotating image needs to either open a lightbox type window or click thru to another page.

    Kriesi

    if you are very good with javascript you cna pull that off by overwriting my behaviour, however the current version doesnt support any links or lightboxes on the roating slider since click events are reserved to change the image

    HI KRIESI ,

    OOPS . I came up with a work around for that. I am pushing all the social media items and links to it’s own page. I was attempting to place some dynamic icons in that area.

    You rock on the responses. Hopefully all will be smooth from here on out. If more questions arise I will be concise and efficient. Thanks!

    Sorry, I am a newbie, please help. I just bought the template but my logo is 405×105, much larger than the existing one so it cuts my logo off. Where do I change the size?

    Kriesi

    in style.css search for .logo

    What would the PHP need to be changed to in order to make the “Latest News” section on the front page display only one particular category of posts? For example, a category called “Events?”

    Thanks! This theme is fabulous!!

    hey, no this is not possible that way, you cant apply a swf file like a background image. what you would need to do is to add the swf object to a div within the header file and set this div to position absolute and a z-index of 0 or -1 to display it behind the normal content…

    Kriesi, my Twitter feed on www.ghostforest.org/news-2 shows up strange characters for non letter and number characters (ie possessive ’s).

    Any idea what might be causing this?

    regards, GG

    Kriesi

    hm, are you using the latest version of the theme? I ve uploaded a patch with bugixes two weeks ago that should fix any twitter problems. (latest version of the theme is 1.3.1, you can take a look in your style.css file which version you are using)

    i am on version 1 so no i don’t have the latest theme.

    i have made a bunch of theme changes though so i won’t do a wholesale upgrade. do i only need to update twitter.php and/or the twitter section of style.css to fix the twitter formatting?

    do you have a fixed buglist for the update i can look at to see what else i should be cutting in?

    regards, GG

    Kriesi

    oh, im sorry thought i am responding on the wordpress version here :P

    you might try to turn javascript of in your browser and take a look if the characters show up strange or not. if the stop showing up strange we know its a problem with font replacement which maybe can be solved if we use a more complete font file that supports more characters…

    thanks for the reply.. i didn’t want to have an .swf as a background picture i wanted it as a header. (i.e at the top of page running across the top….

    thanks…

    Kriesi

    that would be pretty much the same process, you would just need to add the swf file into the div #head

    Thanks for the great theme, Kriesi.

    How do I make the slider larger to accommodate larger portfolio images?

    Thanks!

    Kriesi

    you would need to change some css properties, most notably the #top .featured_item_active class that sets the width for the front image as well as the position of this image. the javascript should then work with the properties of this class

    Hi Kriesi,

    love the theme. Just purchased.

    Only have 1 question. I need to add in some extra fields on the contact form, 1 being a drop-down list. I’ve done a search on the net to find some php code but I don’t want those ugly apple style drop-downs. Is it possible to have a drop down list in the same style as your theme?

    I know exceeding little about php and on only my 2nd design project so any help is greatly appreciated.

    Kriesi

    unfortunatley it is not really possible to apply a lot of styling to a dropdown list item. you can however try to add a css rule in style.css for the dropdown like select{border:1px solid #ABABAB; color:#666666; } maybe thats enough for you :)

    Thanks. Will see if that works. Was trying to get more like you’ve got for the dropdown menus rather than the typical dropdown lists. I guess that’s not really possible for this.

    Great. I’m going to buy it for my new site/blog this month. If i have some time to create/modify it.

    I love the files – really nice. Seems the menus don’t drop down in ie 6 – at least that seems to be the one thing all the failures have in common. Any ideas?

    Kriesi

    hm, just tested it again in ie6 on my pc and it works…

    maybe it’s just our build – I did read that IE 6 has trouble with some of css calls. Thanks for looking at it.

    hey I was just wondering how difficult it is to integrate a wordpress blog into the design. I bought this theme a couple days ago, and I really like the blog page on it so I would love to try and integrate wordpress by just using this design. How much would I have to alter the blog.php page etc.?

    Kriesi

    well it isnt of course impossible since the levitationwordpress edition sold here uses the html version as starting point. however you would need to change quite a lot of the template and fill it with all the wordpress internal functions, loops and template calls.

    You might consider just to use the wordpress version for your site instead of coding the whole thing from the ground…

    hello, I’ve just bought your theme’ and I like it :)

    1. there is no way to make flash working behind menu? 2. is it possible to load content, I mean other pages, inside index page using menu with jquery?

    thanks

    Kriesi

    I am not sure about flash since i do not use it very often but if you set the z-index of the flash item lower than that of the menu and the flash transarency to opaque it should work just fine…

    I am not sure what exactly you want to accomplish in your second question. maybe you could describe it a little more in depth?

    Hi,

    I have never used word press before and I am trying to change to levitation logo in the top right corner, but I can’t find the options that allows me to do that.

    Thanks, Isabelle
