First, I would like to say that I love this theme, but I have one small problem. I have begun configuring my page, and I would like include some information about myself; however, the About Author box does not appear on the homepage. I made sure the box to hide it is not checked under the options, so I assume it should be there. Am I missing something? Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, thanks. For now there is no author box on a homepage, the “hide author box” options on options panel is the author box on the single page, i’ll consider to create about author widget for the next release, for now maybe you can search the widget on plugin repository, but i cannot recommend any since i never use any of them.

PS. Sorry for late reply, it’s weekend since yesterday here and i didn’t check the comment. :)

Hi there – this is a great theme. One question – how can I center align the navigation? I noticed it aligns to the center in the mobile view but not the standard view? I’ve tried everything!

plus62
Hi, thanks for your kind word. To center align the navigation the only way is to edit the css file, if you sure want to edit it, open the style.css with the file editor, go to line 1788 you will find the code like this:
.nav .menu li {
    float: left;
    position: relative;
    border-left:#ddd 1px dotted;
    width:auto;
}
Remove the float:left; code and add display:inline-block; so the final code should be like this:
.nav .menu li {
    display:inline-block;
    position: relative;
    border-left:#ddd 1px dotted;
    width:auto;
}

Please make sure to backup your file before you edit it. If there’re still problems please let me know.

Thanks so much! That worked a treat in everything…except IE 8 ! I wonder why this could be…

plus62

O yeah, you should edit for ie lower than 9, in file library/css/ie.css on about the line 85. It should work but i can’t test it out now since i dont have ie8 or lower.

Hi,

Nice theme! Just couple questions:

- Is there going to be a solution for having social share-links in the single posts?

- What is the situation with the related posts? I can’t see them on the demo yet.

Additionally I would like to ask, that is there any way to change the maximum size of the header logo?

tanelid Purchased

And still one more:

- How can I change the date format in the sidebar widgets (related posts and popular posts)? The date format is now m/d/Y and I need to change that to d/m/Y

plus62

Hi. Thanks for liking the theme.

1. Im developing the social share in single page, it will included in the next release expect it will be released in a day or two.

2. About the logo, for now the maximum logo it’s half of the width, the only way is change the code, if you want to make it wider, open header.php with text editor on the line 56 you will find code like this
<p id="logo" class="col480 left h1">
</p>
Change to:
<p id="logo" class="col620 left h1">
</p>

3. For the date format, for the related posts you can edit the code at file /library/plus62-helper.php on line 463, there somethingl like <?php the_time(‘m/d/Y’); ?>, you can edit it to <?php the_time(‘d/m/Y’); ?> same goes for the popular posts but it’s in the file library/widgets/recent_posts.php line 58. Please note that in the next release i will use the date format from General Setting, so it’ll be easier to change it and no need to edit the .php file.

And sorry if i assume that you’re able to change code on some HTML file, if you cannot do the steps above please shoot me email, i’ll do that and send you, and check again for updates in a day or two. If there’re still problems please let me know. :)

Hi. I’m considering buying your theme. Purchased a theme that didn’t work out so need to find out as much as possible before hand. :) Do you have a custom header? (size?) how many side bars and where? (I’d like two right hand side bars and a footer.) is there color customization? if you don’t have something, like related posts, won’t a plugin work? (just reading a comment above.) Is there font customization? I think that is what I need to know. Thanks so much!

also I am working with a number of older posts, is everything set up automatically to be featured images? because then my images don’t always show up and I can’t automatically set them (too much time, work). thanks.

plus62

Hi, For your question. 1. About custom headers the theme not supported it, but there’s custom logo which have space half of the theme width.

2. About sidebar, unfortunately there’s only one righthand sidebar, four column of footer and a header sidebar for ad(468×80) purpose.

3. For color costumization you can change header, menu, the carousel slider and footer using the style extender plugin, included in the theme package. You change everything from the front end via admin bar, so you can see the change with live preview. The how to’s included on theme documentation.

4. For font costumization you can choose from 500+ Google webfont, you can change the body font, the headings and also widget title font. You can apply this also with style extender.

5. Related posts is ready, for other things yes plugins should work, if not you can ask me to look for it.

6. For older posts, unfortunately it won’t automaticly set to be featured post, except the ones you already set it up also it won’t resize automaticly.

Feel free if there’re another questions. Thanks. :)

Great theme! does the navigation support drop down menus (child pages)?

plus62

Thanks. Yes of course :)

Hi,

Love this theme! One thing is, I’ve installed Style Extender, but when I make changes in the dropdown & hit save – nothing happens. I’ve tried shift refresh, any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi, Thanks for loving the theme, there’re should be live changes when you change some option. I can’t figure out the problem if i don’t try it myself, if it’s okay with you, can you give me some temporary credential to your site? so i can check it, if yes shoot me an email. Thanks. :)

Hi! I love the theme, but i have a big problem. I can`t upload the theme in wordpress. When i try, Wordpress give me this message “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”. Could you help me? I really want to use this theme in my website. Thanks!

plus62

Hi, thanks for loving the theme. I think you mistakenly upload the whole package. Once you download the Lightly.zip from themeforest you should extract it first, after extracted inside the Lightly folder there’re 4 folders such as Doc, Licensing, Plugin and Theme. In the Theme Folder you will find lightly folder and lightly.zip file, Since you upload via WordPress dashboard so you should upload the lightly.zip file.

For more detail in installing the theme, you can see the documentation at Lightly/Doc/index.html relative to your extracted package.

If there’re still problems please let me know. Thanks. :)

Please check your demo site. It doesn’t work in IE7 . The sidebar falls down

plus62

I’ll check again once i get IE7 , last time i checked it’s fine, maybe because some update. Thanks for letting me know, i’ll fix it as soon as posible.

Hi! First of all; I really LOVE this theme! Tho, I’d like to change some things, but I don’t know how… I want to change the length of the ‘preview’ part… I want to have it ended until I set the <more> tag, do you understand? I hope you can explain to me how to change this :).

Thanks, Maarten

plus62

Hi, yes i think i understand what you mean. You can do this by change the file, on index.php file if you open it and see line 63 you will see code like

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

Change it to:

<?php the_content(); ?>

If you also want to apply on category/tags/archive page you should change it on archive.php, same with above but the code is at line 65.

However it would be nice if you do this using child theme so when there’re update on the theme, the change you’ve made wont be replaced. Since it not so dificult to create i’ll give you step by step to create the child theme.

1. Create the folder for your child theme name like ‘lightly-child’

2. Inside the folder create style.css

3. Open the style.css with your text editor, and insert code like below. And save.
/*
Theme Name: Lightly Child Theme
Theme URI: http://www.plus62.me/
Description: Lightly Child Theme.
Author: +62
Author URI: http://www.plus62.me/
Template: lightly
Version: 1.0.0
*/

@import url("../lightly/style.css");

4. Copy file index.php and archive.php from lightly theme.

5. Change the_exerpt(); to the_content(); on those file like i explained before.

6. Upload, Install and activate the ‘Lightly Child Theme’ theme. That’s it.

For more about child theme you can visit the codex here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

If there’re another problems or questions please let me know. :)

Oh, and the ‘Latest Tweets’ section: Is it possible to translate the ‘XX days ago’ part?

plus62

I still don’t have idea since it’s from twitter api, i’ll try to figure out and let you know if i found something.

Hi! thanks for your help! Now I’m using the theme, but i have some questions: 1.- Wich is the size of the photos that you use in the Demo? I want mi site like the example.

2.- How can I order the categories in the Top menu? I want to have the categorie ¡Hola! at first.

Thanks!

Hi.

1. For featured image on the slider with big image it would be best with minimum 711px × 360px, but for thumbnail image its 300px × 200px or larger, cause it will resize automaticly for the thumbnail. In case you don’t know how to set the featured image you can visit the tutorial here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/#setting-a-featured-image

2. For menu order, it’s on menu manager by drag and drop, here’s the tutorial : http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

If there’re another problems please let me know. :)

This looks like a really, really great theme! I want to buy it but testing it in Adobe Browserlab shows that it has some serious formatting issues in both IE 7 and IE 8 . Are you planning on fixing these bugs soon?

plus62

Yes i’m planning to fix it soon, it should be fixed in the next release.

Alright, looking forward to it, it’s a simply fantastic looking template!

Hello, beautiful design indeed. Quite simple question (for you). I do already have a blog on wordpress, how can I update it with yours since Lightly layout is not coming up in the wordpress list on my dashboard? Thanks! Chiara

plus62

Hi, thanks for your kind words, but im sorry if im not really understand what your question. Sure you should download the theme and upload to your WordPress blog to make the theme shown of on the dashboard. If there’re another question please ask.

Default-user

Oh well, my question was probably just too basic! Thanks, if I can download the theme and upload it from the dashboard in WP that’s great. I’m sure there are instructions somewhere? Thanks again! C

Hi! Thanks for all you help! I have to more questions: 1.- I’m using the widget “last video” but doesn´t work the video on the home page. Only works in the post.

2.- How can i change the font and the color? I try to use the style extender but i’m new on this, so i don´t know where i have to put tne new info.

Can you help me??

Thanks a lot!

plus62

Hi,

1. Did you set the post format to video? this is when you edit the post. 2. Have you tried to read on the documentation? in ‘Modify the Theme’ section.

Hey,

Thx for the update but i have to say that Internet Explorer 8 (and lower) still doesn’t show the correct width and the website looks squeezed. Everything else seems fine which is great. Anyway, one more thing i’d like to ask, do you plan to add more social buttons in the near future like google plus and others? Thank you

Hey,

So what happens if i change the code to make it wider? Or is it the way the old explorers work? Thx

plus62

I make them fix to 980px (i said 960 in the prev comment), it’s due to some incompatibility to some CSS3 : Box sizing(box-size:border-box) property i’ve used on fluid grid. It’s a little difficult and some math to change the width, but if you are already understand grid system sure you can change the width by defining the grids, it’s on file /library/css/ie.css in about line 20.

Im not sure but i’ll try to consider to take another approach for IE8 and lower to make the them fluid.

Hi,

I’ve installed lightly theme and i can’t see the shortcodes successfully. I only see [blockquote3] or pre[tab title=”your tab1 title”] . Can anybody help me?

Thanks

plus62

Hi,

Really sorry but the theme doesn’t have shortcode feature, the reason is already stated on the comment in the page 2 to user whitewall. For Shortcode solution i recommend you to use Zillashortcode plugin by zilla theme http://www.themezilla.com/plugins/zillashortcodes/ this plugin going smoothly with the theme.

If there’re another problems please let me know. Thanks.

Hi – am just working on the theme at the moment – searching for FileExtender plugin – no results – am I missing something obvious? Cheers Pete

plus62

Hi Pete, the plugin is included in the package, once you download the Lightly.zip from themeforest, you extract it and you’ll get Lightly folder, inside that folder you will find 4 folder such as Doc, Licensing, Plugin and Theme. Go into Plugin folder there will be style-extender folder, that’s the plugin. For installing the plugin please read the documentation on section Modify the Theme.

If there’re still problems please let me know. Cheers.
