I bought the theme and I’m working on converting my site over to your custom templates. One question, though. I am able to easily make book pages, but how do I get the pages (shown in the demo) with all of the book covers displayed like a menu?

meanthemes

Hi there, thanks for purchasing, Your question is covered in the provided documentation, all you need to do is set up a new page and select the template “Page – Books” if this gives you a page not found, please make sure you visit Settings > Permalinks page and click save settings. If you have any further questions please send them over to us via http://www.meanthemes.com/support so we can make sure you get everything you need.

Whenever I put an image in a textbox in the sidebar (with html) the resize code doesn’t work and the image is transparent. Is there a way to override this?

Hi,

I purchased this template because I’m an author, and I cannot get the ‘Books’ or ‘Portfolio items’ to work correctly. I can create a page using ‘Books – page’, but I always get an error on what should be the books display page.

“What did we do with that page? Sorry, we can’t find it, please try clicking on the navigation above.”

This isn’t working.

Hi thanks for purchasing. This is a standard WordPress issue when a new custom post type is introduced. Just go to your settings > permalinks page and click save and your book page will be working for you. If you need anything else please contact support at http://www.meanthemes.com/support

Hello, I love this theme and it’s 95% perfect for my uses. I am running into two problems however. Can I expect an update to include grouping books into series? I maintain a website for a published author who has many published novels and they’re being listed out of order on the books list. I can’t even get them to display in order.

Secondly, all tables in the theme are appearing on a while background in the TDs. Is there a setting to change this? The hover is also light grey, and my whole site is driven on a black background.

Examples: http://www.melanierawn.com/dev/books/

Thanks!

Hi there, if you log a ticket with support they will be able to help with the table styling and book ordering MeanThemes Support. We are working on a brand new theme aimed specifically at authors rather than a blog theme + book post type and portfolio post type. The new theme will have book categories, but at the moment we’re not planning on adding book categories to Literary.

Hi. Just purchased this theme, loving it so far! I do have one issue I can’t seem to resolve. How can I stop the featured image from showing up in each blog post? I have tried disabling featured image, but it is still showing up in all of my old posts.

Hello! I am really digging this theme! I am wanting to setup my site to have no sidebar and no share information on the left. I just want a content box, if you understand me? How will that look? Will the content box center?

meanthemes

Hey there, thanks :) You can turn the sidebars on/off per page or post. You can also turn off share via the theme options. The content box won’t be quite centered as the author, categories and tags will be there so there will be a slight offset.

Default-user

Wow! Thanks for the quick reply. Ah yeah, I see what you mean. Could I remove those items and then have the content box center? I can edit css and php some, would that work? I think it would get erased though if the theme had an update.

meanthemes

No worries, yes you could re-adjust it with CSS and Literary comes with a child theme for customisations like that. Child themes allow you to update simple things like CSS and even PHP and still get the theme updates. http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

Default-user

Ohh, sounds very wise. How good is your support on these themes? If I end up needing some help/advice/direction will you guys help me? Are you planning to keep this theme up-to-date? Thanks! I am on the verge of buying ;)

meanthemes

We offer free bug fixing support and don’t mind the occasional CSS question, I’m sure we’d be able to help with yours if you end up getting stuck :)

Default-user

Oh good! I bought the theme and got stuck :( I have submitted a support request via your ticket support :) I am sure hoping you’ll be able to help me.

meanthemes

No worries at all :)

I just want to let everyone know that the author of this theme is AWESOME. They have been wonderful to me. I have needed help making some CSS adjustments and they have promptly aided me. I really recommend buying this theme or another from the author. Top notch quality and excellent customer support!

Thank you so much, what a lovely comment :)

The wide image shortcode you’ve included in recent themes is pretty attractive. Any chance of a Literary update with this shortcode included?

meanthemes

Hi there, it may be something we can add in at some stage, but its not on the immediate plans. I’ll put it down on the development list for the team to review.

After a month, I still love this theme! I wonder if I could submit my website as an example site using your theme? http://lawyerwrit.org

Thanks for your kind words, it means so much to us :)

I want to use the Books option for both books and magazine articles. One page will have books, the other articles. Is there a way to do this without categories?

I also want to use the Portfolio option for both iOS apps and other products, each on its own page. Again, is there a way to do this without categories?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Belinda

meanthemes

Hi Belinda.

1. The only way to do this would be to create another custom post type, which you could do via a child theme or plugin if you have WordPress knowledge

2. You would need to do this with the categories, or you could code your own custom post type as above.

Thanks. One other question: Italics does not work. Any idea how to fix this?

meanthemes

In what way doesn’t italics work, in the WordPress editor or on the actual website?

Could you send details to http://www.meanthemes.com/support and we’ll look into it more closely
