Oops what that was supposed to say is that i just got the theme also and im trying to also have only one image for a gallery appear on the front page,.. i used the cdd about but its not working, any idea? www.justaminorthreat.com

Hi Ken,

Sorry but the theme you have installed isn’t Mason. Its this one: http://themecloud.co/themes/surface

Thanks

yeai know that i was playing with another theme until you answered its back installed now

mikedidthis

Hi Ken,

Ok, it seems I made a mess of it, so here is take two:

#posts.page-index .post.photoset li {
    display:none;
}
#posts.page-index .post.photoset li:first-child {
    display:block;
    width: 100% !important;
    height: auto !important;
}

Hope that helps. Again to clarify, I don’t advise this technique due to how masonry.js and photosetGrid.js work.

Thanks

Thank you thats worked,.. so im not sure why you don’t recommend this what problem can arise? Didnt Tumblr used to have some sort of gallery way to display images sets? Other wise for groups of images it will get quite cluttered right? On the permalink pages is there a way to add space between the images instead of them being flush like : http://justaminorthreat.com/post/58172422649/kid-dynamite-this-is-hardcore-2013 also is there a fiz to add the rite on the front page on or under the images?

mikedidthis

Hi Ken,

Glad it worked. There are two main reasons for not advising the technique. 1) Masonry.js is funny about heights, so hiding images can mess with it. 2) Sadly the user still has to download these images, no matter what css we use to hide them.

Anyway, the only display options Tumblr provides for photos is as a single, or a photoset.

As for spacing, again using Custom CSS:

#posts.page-permalink .photoset .photoset-grid li {
   padding: 5px 0px 5px 0px;
}

Play around with the values as its not clear where you would like the space.

As for ‘also is there a fiz to add the rite on the front page on or under the images?’ I literally have zero idea what this means :(

Thanks

haha thanks,.. it was supposed to say is there a way to add title or captions to the front page images on top of or under the image link on the permalink page

mikedidthis

Hi Ken,

Ahh that makes sense. Its not official, but I have a modified version of Mason with caption on the home page.

Message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk and I will pass it on.

Thanks

Hi, I copied and pasted the HTML codes (have changed to plain text) and the page looks weird. Images are not loaded and the style looks awfully. Am I missing something?

mikedidthis

Hi mighty.

I would imagine you are missing something. The HTML code should start:

<!DOCTYPE html>

The theme preview will look a mess until your save and refresh the customise page, as mentioned in the documentation.

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks

Hi, great theme! I was just wondering if it has infinite scroll and a search box? I was also wondering if the nav menu and logo could come down as you scroll down? Thank you for your time!

mikedidthis

Hi,

Infinite scroll yes, search box no, fixed header no.

Thanks

Hi, nice work, really like your theme !

I was wondering, can we post different pictures in one post, but keep only one “presentation” picture on the homepage for the post ? I mean, when you click to open a post, you have a photoset with the other pictures you included in your post ?

Also, can we change the logo on the left ?

Last question, where is the presentation/about spot, can we have it on the homepage ?

(sorry for the dumb questions, I’m new on tumblr, this is the first time I try to personalize it, html is a mystery to me, also don’t speak english very well so hope you’ll understand..)

mikedidthis

Hi,

Sorry for the delay, responses below:

1) Yes this is possible, but can only be achieved by hiding all but the first image on the indexpage. Sadly Tumblr lacks the logic to display just the first image in a photoset.

2) Yes, the logo is customisable.

3) Mason doesn’t come with an about section. However most use the Tumblr Pages feature to display an about page, like so: http://mikedidthis-mason.tumblr.com/changelog

Hope that helps,

Thanks

Hi I really like your theme.

Just wanted to ask a couple of things.

1. can the widths of the images be changed to make it 4 columns 2. can the comments, likes and view without a date be made to appear as a user hovers over the image and not have the section under the image as it currently is.

Kindest regards

mikedidthis

Hi elephant2009.

I am not 100% sure what you asking to do with the images?

Yes with CSS you can modify the post details to display however you wanted.

Thanks

Mike

elephant2009

Hi Mike

Yeah sorry I thought I put a space between those 2 questions.

I’ve made a mockup to help better explain what I had in mind. Its maybe something that can’t be done easily but figured it was worth asking.

The top one is the original the second one would be my second prefered if the third one wasn’t doable the third one is how I would love the post to look.

Do you think this would be possible Cheers

Hi, Mike. Thanks for awesome theme! I immediately purchased it.

I have a question.

Is there any way to show the post content under the photo at the index page when it’s the photo-type-post or photoset-type-post?

I tried

[div class=”lines”]
{Body}
[/div]

in the {block:Photo} but it failed…;(

mikedidthis

Hi T8,

Message support@mikedidthis.co.uk I will hook you up with a modified version that allows this.

Thanks

Hi, Mike!

Don’t need to send me email. I’ve solved contents-under-the-photo-at-the-index-page-issue on my own.
I hope you haven’t start the work for my issue…! Thank you.

I need your another help if you can.
Is there any way to show images with tumblr’s lightbox effect at the index page like it works at the permalink page?

Thanks for your support!

mikedidthis

Hi T8,

Sorry the support desk was down, so I couldn’t log in and get your email :(

Glad you resolved the issue.

The modification is possible, however I can’t advise more till Monday.

I will send you a message with my thoughts.

Hi. There appears to be an issue with the notes link on the post view page. If you click the #notes link next to the heart icon, I would expect the page to scroll down to the notes section. But it does not appear to do this. Would you mind fixing that? The same issue applies to the Disqus link.

Thanks

mikedidthis

Hi Cheekypaolo.

Hmm that is odd. If you can message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I can advise on the fix until the next theme update.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike, I have emailed you about this. Please let me know how to handle. Thanks.

Another bug: On the main page, where you have the bar below each post that shows the number of notes and disqus comments: when you hover over the disqus comments icon, the text is all garbled. Instead of showing “0”, it appears to be showing “0 Comments”, which does’t fit in the space provided. In your demo theme, it only shows “0”, however, in the original theme code you provide, it demonstrates this bug and displays “0 comments”.

Please fix this or explain why it is happening. It does this with a fresh installation of your theme code, so it has nothing to do with any theme changes I have made. I have tested it with the original theme code as well – problem is still there.

mikedidthis

Hi Cheekypaolo,

Sadly this isn’t a bug, but a setup issue. Its mentioned in the documentation. However follow the instructions on the link below:

https://mikedidthis.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/927112-comment-count-and-disqus-2012

I don’t believe you need to enable the old Disqus anymore, just follow the instructions after that:

Go to: http://YOURSITE.disqus.com/admin/settings/

Remove ‘comment’ from: Comment Count Link

Hope that helps.

Thanks

Mike

Default-user

Hi Mike. There is NO Disqus 2012 section anywhere under the general settings found here for our test site: http://girlswithbracesblog.disqus.com/admin/settings/

Also, I checked every other tab, and there is nothing that resembles the screenshot you pasted which referenced Disqus 2012. Perhaps they have upgraded the interface for new users of disqus? Because it is definitely not there.

mikedidthis

Hi Cheekypaolo.

Yeah I mentioned in the comment you may not need the old / 2012 Disqus option.

Either way, the option is under settings: http://i.imgur.com/Tl12GjG.png

I will update the documentation when I get chance.

Hope that helps.

After installing the theme, the redirect option for pages is no longer available in the dropdown, rendering the pages function unusable. How can I fix this?

mikedidthis

Hi,

I believe this is an issue with Tumblr and Firefox, the theme has no control over pages.

If you try in another browser, you should be fine.

Thanks

Mike

Default-user

I tried chrome and firefox. Both only show custom and standard layout… But you are right in that it does not seem to depend on the theme used. It just doesn’t work. Redirect is gone. Thanks for the quick reply!

mikedidthis

Hmm that is odd, its showing in Chrome for me: http://i.imgur.com/TldFpJG.png

You gotto be kidding me. I got this reply from Tumblr support:

“Hello, To prevent spam and other types of abuse on Tumblr, we unlock features on new accounts over time. After you’ve used the account for a while to do things like Follow other blogs, Like posts, and customize your blog’s appearance, the feature will be unlocked so you can use it. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!”

mikedidthis

Wow, I didn’t expect that. I dunno what else to say, but I am super sorry and that I wish I could help resolve this. :(

Default-user

No worries, not your fault. I appreciate your looking into this ;)

I was wondering about container size, though. Only youtube posts seem to receive an appropriate width. Soundcloud postings get assigned 100% length (unlike the soundcloud box showing on your example page) and, worst of all, text postings show up in full length and as long narrow columns. Anything I can do about that?

Default-user

sorry, I meant length, of course. The Soundcloud widget take sup the top 30% and the rest is a long empty column. Also, for text, I assumed it would show part of the text on the page and then show the entire text on the permalink page…

P.S.: Just as a suggestion for future updates it’d also be great if there were some sort of “pin to top/side option”. For example to fix an “about” tile to a permanent position or an important post to the top. I have to change the posting dates all the time retroactively only to get the tiles in the right order.

mikedidthis

Hi Patrick,

I would have to see your site to comment on the issues, if you can message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk with your questions, that would be great.

Any chance of an update for the Twitter integration? I’m guessing it’s working on the newer themes. I’m comfortable updating the code on my side, if it’s that simple.

Thanks for a great theme!

Hi Volitionart.

Leave it with me. After a long delay / absence I promise to release an update to all my Tumblr themes by the end of next month.

Thanks
