Hello, I love this theme. Congratulations on your work. How I can improve the appearance of the texts of the blog? They look very bad on my website.
  • Subtitle and paragraph spacing
  • Separation between paragraphs
  • Shapely simple lists (with typical bullets)
  • Remove the left column extending its content.
You can see the look you currently have in http://srtaphillips.com/blog/

I would not lose these modifications whenever the blog is updated. Is it possible?

Hello Nadia,

Wow, I’m sorry for this late reply, it seems I clicked on the “Mark all as read button” without answering your questions. Next time feel free to write a reminder or write me a mail directly at info@magna-themes.com, sometimes I really busy and overlook comments…

OK, let’s go through your problems.

1) Problems with spacing.

Event though WordPress is a blog engine in default, writing a blog post can be really frustrating because WP doesn’t handle linebreaks well, at least this is my personal opinion. So how to solve the problem? The following “solutions” can work:

- Use line breaks at the end of the paragraph. You can duplicate them if needed.

- Add the line <br /> tags manually to the post in text mode in case the SHIFT + ENTER combination doesn’t work

- You can set a constant bottom margin for the paragraph by adding this code to the “Custom css” option on the “Theme settings—> Advanced” page:

.post_teaser p, .post_content p { margin-bottom: 30px; }

For sure the 30px is just an example, feel free to change it to a value that fits better to your taste.

- I think the TinyMCE Advanced plugin can be useful for a frequent blogger.

- These articles show some handy text formatting tricks: Formatting text pt. 1: blank lines, alignment, wrap-around, two columns | Formatting text pt. 2: indents and blockquotes

2) Bullet lists.

There are several sections in the theme that uses lists to show content, moreover, there are 10+ custom list shortcodes, so I decided to disable the old bullet list style. You can restore it by adding the following code to the already mentioned option:

.post_teaser ul, .post_content ul { list-style: initial; }

3) Remove the meta elements ( left column ) from the blog page.

To be honest this is a bit more difficult, because you need to re-write the html / css structure of the blog index page to achieve that. Normally I don’t used to make offers like this, but I would like to compensate your time a bit, so I make that change for you, but I need your assistance. Please write me a mail at info@magna-themes.com then we discuss about the details there.

Mark

Hi , i love this theme or my website ;) I’ve got some troubles for few days with the SERVICES section. When clicking on “more info” the text doesn’t appear …. Could you help me ?

Best regards from France ;)

Hello,

First of all thank you for the purchase and I’m sorry for your problem.

Secondly, it is difficult to find out what causes the issue without checking the site, but I would try to set the permalinks to “default” first. You can do that on the “Settings—> Permalinks” page.

Please let me see your site in case the mentioned solution doesn’t help.

Regards, Mark

It works !!!! Thank you so much !!!!

You are welcome! :)

Hi!

first of all I want to say that I’m very happy with the theme!

I have a question (and sorry for my bad English):

In the Portfolio part, I placed photo’s but they won’t become a circle. I have tried everything, photoshopped them, but they stay in a weird square-like form. How can I make the photo’s round?

Thnx!

Kind regards, Maaike

Hello Maaike,

I guess the size of your portfolio images is not 520×520. The width and the height must be the same in order to get a circle.

Hello! Doesn’t work sorting categories in the portfolio. When you press on the category, the work isn’t rebuilt. Reinstalling the plugin didn’t help.

Hello,

Can you please provide me a link where I could check your site with a developer tool. The filtering system is powered by javascript, so there should be a js issue in the background which might be caused by a third plugin, but I need to see the code anyway to find out what’s wrong.

Mark

Hello,

Where can I get the same social icons ? I would like to use it in the widget.

Thanks

Hello,

The social icons can be found inside the images/social icons folder of the theme. Themes are stored in the wp-content folder.

Mark

Hello,

The categories of my portfolio don’t display on my homepage. I don’t understand why.

Thanks

OK, in this case I need to see your site in order to find out what’s wrong with the categories. Can you please send me a link? You can write me at info@magna-themes.com in case your site is not public.

I just updated one of my site to WordPress 4.2 and the categories disappeared from the front end. It is strange because it worked well in the last three years, but it seems custom taxonomies changed in WordPress somehow. I’m going to find out the cause and fix it as soon as possible! Thank you for your patience.

Mark

Hello, I have the same probleme as Oralinea since Worpdress update (4.2) this morning… www.clairejanssens.com.

You are right. I just updated one of my demos to 4.2 and the categories somehow disappeared from the front end, even though they are still exist in the admin. I’m going to find out what’s wrong and fix it as soon as possible. Thank you for the bug report!

Hello !

I have another question !

On my “services” page, I would like to add a text before the services. How can I do that ?

Hello!

You can add that text on the “Theme settings—> Services” page.

Of course ! Again, Thanks for your responsiveness !

Thank you Mark, for your quick update and fix ! It works fine now ! I was a bit scared when I did the update (using a child theme) because WP said it was brocken and my site crashed… But finally, I don’t know why, everything is ok. ;-) thanks again, you’re always very responsive ! Claire

Claire,

It’s OK, I’m glad that everything is all right now on your side. Feel free to write me anytime in case you need help.

Is there a changelog for the update from today? :-)

Hello,

I just added the mods of the version 3.7 to the change log. It is a crucial update, because the version 3.61 is not perfectly compatible the WordPress versions 4.2 and above.

Regards,
Mark

Thanks!

Since the last update to V3.7 links in the copyright text do not work. Seems the ability to put in html is lost. Before I had this line in and it worked fine: Impressum

Hello,

Yes, you are right. It happens because output of the that option is sanitized by the esc_attr function. You can re-store that in the footer.php file:

//ORIGINAL:
<?php echo esc_attr( get_option('copyright_text') ); ?>

//TRY THIS:
<?php echo get_option('copyright_text'); ?>

I admit that the esc_attr doesn’t make too much sense in this case, but the current Themeforest standards require to sanitize all of the texts, urls and js related html attributes that can be edited by the user from the backend, so I had to standardize my code.

Hello,

It used to happen with Vimeo videos all the time. It is a known issue, but nobody released a proper solution. To be honest I don’t think it is annoying ( it doesn’t bother me at least ), but you can remove that line(s) by changing the 100% to 101% in the line 386 of the style.css

div.item_video iframe { width: 100%; }

The issue happens because the html tag inside the iframe has black backrgound. The theme cannot control that background, because Vimeo writes its own styles directly into the html ( if you write me a mail at info@magna-themes.com, I’ll write a more detailed explanation with images ). The code above widens the video by 1%, so the that black line overflows from its container which has an overflow: hidden; attribute. This is my best solution in this case.

Mark

For some reason when I want to open a portfolio item, you see the loader for a split-second and then I see nothing. Using WordPress 4.2.2 and the latest theme: http://skrivemedia.nl/#portfolio

Any solution?

Hello,

Please try to set the permalinks to “default”. You can do that on the “Settings—> Permalinks” admin page.

Hi! I have two questions. 1. Is there a way to remove the black arrows? I changed the margin to 0 so there is no need for them anymore. 2. Is there a way to decrease the space between the logo at the top and the top menu? Thanks!

Okay I solved the portfolio issue. I still would like to know how to remove the black arrows and decrease the logo/menu margin though!

Hello,

1) You can change the bottom margin of the logo in the line 250 of the style.css file:

#logo {
  max-width: 900px;
  margin: 0px auto;
  margin-bottom: 42px;
  text-align: center;
}

That file can be edited on the “Appearance—> Editor” admin page.

2) Removing the black arrows is a bit more complicated. There are two methods.

Method 1: Add the following code to the “Custom css” box on the “Theme settings -> Advanced” page:

a.scroll_down, a.scroll_top { display: none; }

The css code above will hide the arrow buttons, but their code won’t be removed from the html DOM.

Method 2: Remove the html code of the arrows from the source files. Those files can be found inside the lib/home_sections folder which you cannot reach via the inbuilt theme editor, so you will need to install the WPide extension. The relevant code stays at the very top of the files and look like this one:

    <!-- SlideTo button-->
    <?php if ( get_option('section1_content') != "about" ) : ?>
    <a href="#about" class="scroll_down"></a>
    <?php endif; ?>


Regards,
Mark

Thank you so much!! I appreciate your quick response :) Thanks!

Hi, -before buying, -is it possible to hide menu?

Hello,

You cannot disable the menu from the admin, but you can delete its code from the relevant file. If you buy the theme, I’ll let you know where to find that code and how to remove it.

Mark

Love this theme, it’s almost perfect for our needs. I’ve set up our website with it and have done a bit of customization. I set up a new section on the homepage called “Gallery” because I want to use a lightbox gallery for our portfolio (instead of the portfolio that comes with the theme). I got the Gallery section to work but every gallery plugin I’ve tried disables my slider at the top of the page.

Please take a look – as you will see, there is an empty space below the menu, where the slider should be, and it says “Stop”. Before I added a gallery plugin the slider worked perfectly. I’ve tried about 5 different gallery plugins.

Here is the link: http://www.waterloodesignhouse.com/

Thank you!

Hello Holly,

I just checked your site and it seems the javascript code of the gallery plugin is broken somewhere, at least it blocks all of the js functions of the theme. I used to install the Envira Gallery Lite for my clients when they need an additional gallery. It works well with the “Me” theme.

Regards,
Mark

I’m on an old version. How do I update the theme again? I want to be sure not to lose what I have. Thanks for a great theme!

Hello,

If you didn’t change the code, you won’t loose what you already have. Just install the latest version and that’s all. You can get some basic upgrade instructions here.

Mark
