is there anyway to remove the discography? thanks so much in advance.

BrutalDesign

Simply remove the “Discography” item from your menu and remove the “Discography” from your pages.

ok last question, do you have a sample set file like your demo website? i would like mine to look as much like yours as possible;) thank you so much, this is truly a wonderful theme!

BrutalDesign

I m glad you like this theme ! :)

The demo xml file is included in the theme package. First remove all your pages, empty the trash. Then, upload the demo XML file with Wordpress importer.

I hope it will help

hey brutal thanks for the great theme. I need help and kind of need these solutions figured out today lol.

1) In the top header the jplayer and youtube video are stretched from one end to the other of the screen. They are not displayed like yours are. I tried the codes from your doc thing but its the same (strecthed out) and you can see some of the codes on the actual website. you see a code before the player, then one between the player and video then another code after the video.

2) How did you get all the social media icons on the bottom of your demo page? i want a link/icon to facebook, twitter & youtube somewhere on the site.

3) last question, dont have to answer this one just wondering. I would like to put the instagram photos in the footer like in the demo. How is done?

sorry if these questions are annoying. I’m somewhat new to this lol please help immediately!! thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi, 1/Check the doc in the “home page” section. You will find the snippet to put in the “embed” box (theme options “home page” tab)

2/ Bd Socials plugin : http://bsign.co/iUwN9W

Hi Brutal, thank you for the great support. One last question for the moment: how can I reduce the header size for the mobile theme only? On an Iphone or iPad the header slider is not shown and the header, in my case just a color, seems much too big in the proportion to the content.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can add a CSS rule in the theme options custom CSS box specific to screen under 750px:

@media screen and (max-width:1140px) { 
header#masthead { height: 250px } 
}

It should do the trick

Unfortunately this did not change anything, I tried now with a picture but same result (header is too big on iPhone or iPad in portrait, header slider is not showing).

BrutalDesign

Hi

@media screen and (max-width:750px) { 
header#masthead { height: 200px!important } 
}

Adapt the height value to suit to your needs

I hope it will help

Hello, sorry to bother you again….but I was wondering how to get a play count for each song on the jplayer…I’ve searched the internet and found a few codes to paste, (from this site) https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/jplayer/SB1k3jBbUi4

I haven't had any luck...I was wondering if you could possibly explain this in a clearer way, where to paste this code, or what I am doing wrong, or a completely different way...I tried to paste the code in the pages section with the jplayer playlist shortcode, but when I view my page it just shows the pasted code and the jplayer.....THANK YOU

-Doug

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Thanks for the link. I bookmarked this page. To be honest, adding a song plays counter is not in the top priority for the next update, but it is definitely a good idea and this improvement will be in the pipeline for the near future.

Thanks for your understanding.

Default-user

Ok thanks I understand…I really hope you do consider this in the near future though..I’m sure I am not the only one hoping for this!!! Thanks for the great layout and quick responses.

Hello, few more questions!

1. I cannot upload or play MP3 songs using firefox for jPlayer. This is a MAJOR compatibility issue. Any alternate flash option available?

2. BUG: For discography posts, if the date of a published post is modified then the “Details (Band, Title, etc)” are lost.

3. How does the pagination work for Gallery and Video page?

4. SUGGESTION: Possible to add a category option to Videos?

5. How to add homepage news with thumbnails as your demo site? What are the shortcode options?

Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

1/ There is a known issue with the mp3 upload with firefox on mac. I do my best to fix this ASAP

2/ Just tested and it works for me, but I tried on my development install .I have already made several improvements for the next update including a bug fix with the post meta with the quick edit feature. It probably fix that in the same time.

3/ Just like the demo, there is no pagination for the Gallery and Video page

4/ Thankx for the suggestion

5/ [bd_last_posts] (see the shortcode help for more details)

I hope it will help. Greetings

Thanks for all your feedback.

1. For your next update, can you please add [bd_bigfacebook] just like [bd_bigtweet]. Facebook is more common these days.

2. Is it possible to show “Header Slider” for selected page/post? This would be a fantastic feature and can be implemented from “Custom Header” for each post/page. The template has a nice background-horizontal-bar, which is not visible due to the header-slider in all the pages.

Thanks!

Hi Brutal Design,

thanks for putting so much effort in the theme.

I know you don’t like questions about modifications, but mine is really basic and simple.

I’d like to modify the CSS of your theme using the “child theme” option in WP, since I don’t like all the CSS in the header, which is created by the “Custom CSS” field.

Is there a way of replacing the themes.css via the “child theme” option or is it not recommende due to the underlying BD framework?

Thx for your support.

Best wishes,

B

BrutalDesign

You should be able to create a child theme.css style without problem, I guess Or you can use a style.css file at the root of your child theme to override the parent css Greetings

ok one more question, well maybe one more:) how do i get photos into my new last photo set? it will go into the photo section, but not under last photo sets? sorry i’m so new at this.

BrutalDesign

The [bd_last_albums] shortcode shows the last galleries/albums, and displays the featured image of each galleries as album cover. But be sure to delete your cache if you’re using a cache plugin to see the modifications on your website.

When I call $desc in single-release.php it does not display anything.

<?php if($desc): ?><br /><?php printf(__('<strong>Info</strong> : %s', 'bd'), do_shortcode($desc)) ; ?><?php endif ; ?>

Why so? I want to show ‘description’ with other “Details” like Band, Title, etc on the main discography page.

Also please consider the feature of showing “Header Slider” for selected page/post from “Custom Header”.

Thanks

BrutalDesign
You can add the following at row 19 to display you description in single-release.php
$desc = get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'bd_release_desc', true);

Hello Brutal Design,

Really Great theme – the best I’ve seen so far for music! :)

I have a list of pre-sales questions/issues. I thank you for your patience and I’m fine also with Yes/No or otherwise very brief answers to save you time! :)

HOMEPAGE: 1) Is the Twitter feed below the graphic a widget area (i.e. can I use it for text, iframe for a newsletter optin or does it have to be Twitter?)

2) When page loads, Vimeo video always loads first on the left and after a number of seconds, jPlayer is loaded. Is this normal behavior?

3) On an iPad 2 (running Chrome browser for iPad, not Safari), playing the Vimeo video makes the page “hiccup” (looks like it is repeatedly loading, very fast)

4) On an iPad 2, I have to click the PLAY button twice to let the jPlayer start playing a track. Is this normal?

5) On an iPad 2, the top right Slider with the “check our latest photo shot’ / online store / iphone image does not appear (it does appear on a computer browser. Is this normal?

6) Are the “Check our last photo shot” pix loaded from most recent galleries? And is this slider limited to 3 items?

7) Does the ”+” sign that appears on Images like in a blog entry (in order to load them in a lightbox popup) present itself on ALL images/graphics or can it be by-passed for the sake of having a static image on a page/sidebar without any activity (i.e. links, popups, lightbox etc.)?

8) When an iPad is in portrait mode, is it possible to eventually disable the “BROWSE” link/icon (which replaces the standard menu) and restore standard menu?

9) Is the jPlayer on the homepage a widget (i.e. Could I eventually use another iframe embed for a different online player here such as soundcloud or PicklePlayer)?

PHOTOS > ALBUMS 10) I noticed a bug on iPad for photos: if the iPad is held in landscape mode, if I open a photo that is in landscape mode it looks nice & large and fills the whole screen. But if I tilt the iPad to portrait mode while keeping this photo open, it does not resize. I then try the opposite: If I open a landscape photo when iPad is in portrait mode, that photo looks good and responsive. But if I tilt the iPad the photo does not resize to landscape and does nor look as it should.

VIDEOS 11) Playing videos on an iPad crashes the browser (tested both on Safari Chrome). At times it crashes immediately, other times it crashes only after a second video is loaded.

Thanks for feedback you may have on any of these items.

Best,

calx

Hi,

1/ There is a twitter shortcode to display the big tweet and a twitter widget as well. Widget areas can be inserted anywhere

2/ Yes. It is difficult to control the loading time as the elements appear just when they are ready. No delay is added

3/ It seems that it is not related to the theme as the vimeo video are embed as is with the vimeo iframe code

4/I had hard time to make the player compatible with all browser and mobile devices. I will see if I can improve that as well.

5/ yes. the slider is remove to increase the loading speed a little bit. But it can be changed with a CSS snippet to paste in the theme options

6/ yes and no

7/ It can be added or remove easily, but it is supposed to be displayed for image that opened in the lightbox in the first place

8/ yes. But it requires a minor customization.

9/ yes. you can put basically anything here: text, html, shortcode, embed object etc..

10/ I will see that. thx for letting me know

11/ I would say it is an ipad thing and it is not really related to the theme itself.

I hope it will help

Thanks for answering all the questions! I really appreciate.

Just a quick query: what is the shortcode for “Last Release” as shown in your demo site?

BrutalDesign

I use the last release widget, in a widget area

Thanks for the reply! Regarding the last point, however, (video embeds crashing site) I have tested a number of other websites with video embeds (from both Vimeo & Youtube) and have not found any browser crashes…
