Hi Oscar,

Firstly what a great looking theme, everything has been very simple to set up.

I want to use the main slider to connect to pages rather than posts.

I have done this by following these instructions:

“First you need to add the options box to the pages, open includes/admin/boxes.php find line 19 and change the “post” argument for “page”. This will allow you to add only pages to the slider instead of posts, I believe you could also duplicate the line and it might work so you can add both pages and posts but I haven’t tested this.

Next, you need to open includes/API/posts.php and find line 32. Add “any” as the default post type the line should end up looking like this:

function get_posts_by_meta($key, $value, $max = 5, $post_type = ‘any’) {“

This added the options box (and yes it does work for both pages and posts if you duplicate) but it still didn’t show in the homepage slider.

I then found the following code posted in a forum by a user with the same issue

...open API /posts.php and find this:

‘posts_per_page’ => $max, Add this right below

‘post_type’ => ‘any’,

This has worked and now the pages show alongside the posts on the slider.

What I havent managed to figure out is the sizing of the sliders thumbnail. this appears as a square instead of the usual rectangle.

you can see what i mean at http://www.eurotrance.co.uk

Any help would be appreciated

kind regards

Paul.

Thanks for the nice comments and sorry for the late reply.

Your thumbnails look fin, did you figure out the issue or are you still having problems.

Ok, I have figured it out now!

for some reason using a ‘featured image’ produces a square thumbnail on the nivo slider???

By using the direct URL – even of the same image, it now displays correctly.

I do have another question now though:

when the slider is populated from the posts it shows the category heading (in red as standard) and then the post name below.

when using it for pages instead there is no ‘category’ as such but the slider still shows a small red block of colour above the page name. Is it possible to remove this some how, or even put some text in it?

Regards

Paul

Ok, solved this problem to.

by using the ‘Map Categories to Pages’ plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/map-categories-to-pages/

pages are, like posts asigned to categories, and so now display perfectly alongside posts in the slider.

hope this may help other users trying to achieve the same!

Glad you solved your problems, thanks for posting, another solution could have been opening styles/nivo-slider.css and simply adding the attribute:

display:none;

(to the .nivo-slider span class).

Thanks.

Hello,

There seems to be a bugs. Here’s one :

http://www.gospelofdoom.in/pentagram/guitarist-victor-griffin-leave-pentagram/

On this link you will notice that the sidebar comes right below the post. It is directed to be(Single Post Sidebar Location) on the right side but not sure what exactly the issue is. Need a workaround to fix this.

BioXD

There is an extra div closing the “content” area before it’s supposed to. Do you have any plugins installed that might be causing the issue? does this happen when comments are open?

Oscar.

Hey,

I disabled all the plugins but still no luck….also whenever i keep the comments option open the page works fine….whenever i close the comment option the sidebar goes down….

BioXD

Hi,

Another user just pointed out a bug to me that was causing this problem.

I fixed it and uploaded an update to the theme. It should be available in 24-48 hours. Download it, reinstall the theme and everything should be fixed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Oscar.

Hey, when I try to logout “Twitter Credentials” on Magzimus Options, this gives me an error and throws me to the following site:

mysite.com/wp-content/wp-admin/themes.php?page=options.php&delete_twitter_credentials=1

“Results Not Found Text”

and twitter is still connected…

HELP !!!!!

BioXD

I believe twitter just made some changes to their API and that could be the issue. I’ll look into it and post an update/fix if needed.

As I can solve? thanks

Twitter just made some changes to their API and that is causing some issues with the login. I’ll look into it and post an update/fix soon.

Is there a way to make the main page post the latest post of certain categories. Meaning only the latest post of the particular categories.

BioXD

This would require you to hardcode the wanted categories into the index’s query. It is possible but it might not be worth the trouble. Have you considered simply making the posts “sticky” to keep them on the home page?.

Hello, I have my blog display style set to “full”. I have a few questions relating to that: 1) Is there a way to have a comment count OR have the Facebook comment box show up below all of the posts? 2) Is there a way to link the post title to the URL of the individual post? There appears to be no way to link directly to one blog post (as a visitor).

BioXD

This page from the facebook developers site explains how to get your comment count from Facebook. Another user posted some additional info and some code a couple pages back in the comments section, you might want to check that as well.

I’m not sure I uderstood your question. Do you want the URLs of your posts to be the title of your posts? if so, you can do that from Settings > Permalinks in your Wordpress admin panel.

Hope that helps.

Hi Oscar I have a problem when I use magzimus theme, I can’t search for images in the media library. How fix this?

BioXD

This was added in in purpouse to prevent the users from getting too many unwanted results when they searched for a post. You can disable it by opening search.php in the theme’s folder and deleting or commenting out lines 7 to 26.

That will do it.

Can you please describe how you would make each “category tag background” a different color? Many thanks!

Oscar could you help me with finding this >>

class=”attachment-post-thumbnail wp-post-image” and this>>>

<?php >>echo get_preview_thumbnail<<<(); ?>

BioXD

The first part of that code seems to come from an image attachment. It’s the automatic classes that WordPress add to the images.

The second part is a call to the thumbnail generation function, if you are looking for the call, it’s in pretty much every archive page, in index.php oit’s on line 57. If you are looking for the actual function, it’s on includes/API/media.php inside the theme’s folder.

Hope that helps.

Hi Oscar, Sorry I guess I wasn’t that clear with my last question. When I had the blog display style set to “excerpt” to view a full post you would click on the title of the blog post to view the full blog post. The comment count also shows up in “excerpt” view.

Is there a way to have the blog set to “full” style and have the title of the blog post clickable? (just like in excerpt view). Also, is there a way to have the comment count display in the full style?

Thanks for your help! :)

BioXD

Ah ok. Open index.php, to add links to the titles, find line 89, you will see this:

<h2 class="post_title"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>

Replace it with:

<h2 class="post_title"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"></a><?php the_title(); ?></h2>

As for the comments, I’d recommend that you add the count with the rest of the metadata, go to line 94 and you will find this:

Published on <?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?>

Add the following:

Published on <?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?>, <?php comments_number('0', '1', '%'); ?> Comments.

I hope that helps.

Hello, how can I switch the facebook comments to english, the comments that come in the theme are in spanish and when I add another plug in, it is still in spanish. Also how can I add more preview excerpts so instead of 6 in the home page we have 10.

Thank you for your time

BioXD

Open header.php and find line 59, you will see this:

 js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/es_LA/...";

Replace “es/LA” for “en/US”.

As for the number of posts, go to your wordpress admin panel and the go to Settings > Reading. Find the option that reads “Blos pages show at most X pages” and change that to the number of posts you want to display.

Hope that helps.

Hi there,

I purchased this theme over the weekend – great stuff! My only bug with it is that, once I’ve created a gallery on a post, the images and slideshow don’t load once you click a thumbnail. It just gives you the loading timer but doesn’t do anything else. I’ve tried this on a host of different machines now and always the same. Anything I can do to sort it?

The site is: http://secondcitymetal.com thanks in advance

BioXD

The images in the gallery are loading correctly for me, did you figure out the issue?

Bought this theme a while ago and using it on one site – http://www.womensfootballmonthly.com and trying to use it on my other site http://www.scotzine.com – however an issue has arose on the Scotzine site which did not on the womens football site.

I am trying to add an image from the media library to a post, however when I do a search for specific images nothing shows up – yet when it first loads up the images are there. But I have well over 100 images on site and I cannot scroll through them all to get the relevant image.

Have any clue on how I can sort this out?

BioXD

This was made on purpose so the user doesn’t run into a lot of media results when she is looking for a post. You can solve it by opening search.php in the theme’s folder and commenting out or deleting lines 7 to 26.

That should do it.

What’s that in your tag after “awesome themes”???? Disappointed to see 6 comments after mine get a response while mine goes ignored…So once again, Can you please describe how you would make each “category tag background” a different color?

BioXD

Hi, sorry, I must have missed your other comment.

To do that, you’d need to manually code the menu in header.php instead of using the default wordpress function. Then you’d need to add a unique class to each link. Kind of like this:

<ul class="menu"> <li><a href="" class="color1">..</a></li> <li><a href="" class="color2">..</a></li> <li><a href="" class="color3">..</a></li> </ul>

Then add the color to each link via CSS . and add the !important directive at the end so it overwrites the default styles. Like this:


.color1 {
background-color: #ffffff !important;
}

.color2 {
background-color: #000000 !important;
}

Hope that helps.

Oscar.

I appreciate the response, however, I found an alternate method to accomplish what I was after that didn’t require me to manually code the menu. Thanks.

Great theme, but having an issue with preview and twitter publishing. Forgive me if this has already been addressed…

With publish-to-twitter option enabled and saving drafts, my site publishes links to the revision on twitter. I’ve disabled publish-to-twitter for the time being. Any ideas?

a href="http://www.website/dunyanin-7-harikasi-girit-kolosos-heykeli/" (this one here ) /> <img width="120" height="150" src="http://website/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/7.-rodos-h-eykeli.3-120x150.jpg" class="attachment-post-thumbnail wp-post-image" alt="7. rodos h eykeli.3" title="7. rodos h eykeli.3" /> it couses error like this Line 345, Column 252: end tag for element "a" which is not open

Which file is reporting the error, can you post the full error message?

thats why i am asking oscar i cannot find the file… here it is the errors about it http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3a%2f%2fwww%2egezi-yorum%2enet%2f

Open index.php and find line 56, it’s just a validation error, it doens’t really affect the way the site loads.
