Hey Pirenko! How do I get the original background used in the theme preview to work? When I set it as my background, it scales the image rather than tiling it.

I found it here, I’d just like to use it as a background as it’s awesome!

Thank you :)

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! Under Mercina Options>General tab>Background Pattern select the option “Squairy Light”. Cheers!

hi Pirenko, I’m having a lot of problems getting the theme to work. I’ve done a clean install on my own server and uploaded the theme and imported your dummy.xml. I got a lot of failed messages on the import:

Import WordPress Failed to import Failed to import Failed to import Failed to import Failed to import Failed to import Media “portrait_inv” Failed to import Media “ Beautiful young girl sitting with her knees pulled up ” Failed to import Media “beautifulgirl_t” Failed to import Media “luxury_final” Failed to import Media “target-businessman” Failed to import Media “hand-pressing-button” Failed to import Media “target-businessman” Failed to import Media “Blond boxing woman in black punching bag” Failed to import Media “Blond boxing woman in black punching bag” Failed to import Media “feminine_home” Failed to import Media “madness_arch2” Failed to import Media “night_home_c” Failed to import Media “portrait_inv_t” Failed to import Media “logo_clear_version_238” Failed to import Media “budapest_oil” Failed to import Media “budapest_oil” Failed to import Media “beautifulgirl_gr” Failed to import Media “Portrait of woman.” Failed to import Media “Portrait of woman.” Failed to import Media “fashion woman in black and white” Menu item skipped due to invalid menu slug: main-menu Failed to import Media “hand-pressing-button_f” Failed to import Media “beautifulgirl_grf” Failed to import Media “beautifulgirl_grinv” Failed to import Media “business_html” Failed to import Media “beautifulgirl_grinv” Failed to import Media “Perfect pose” Failed to import Media “fashion woman in black and white” All done. Have fun!

and the theme/site looks nothing like the demo, or the setup in your documentation. The test site is here: http://lexiphi.com/mercina/ Why isn’t it working? Gina

Hi,
“another day, another problem”... I don’t really like this type of comments. It seems that the theme is not working and it is as far as I know. If you see something on the preview that you can’t replicate on your side please let me know. If you spot a bug please let me know too. Otherwise, please stop with these type of comments.
If you are not happy with the theme that is ok and you have already given a poor rating so I know that too. But please stop making these observations that seem to be pointing defects to the theme.
Now, about your issue: you can add subjects to the menu under Appearance>Menus. If you don’t know how to do it please take a look at this tutorial: http://www.pirenko.com/blog/2014/07/24/mastering-wordpress-menus/
Cheers!

And again, you didn’t actually answer my question, which up until now I had been putting down to the language barrier – for example my dry australian humour has been completely misinterpreted. That’s ok, in the meantime I’ve done some research on other forums and worked out why the news/subjects weren’t showing up in the menu selection like the posts/categories. For the record – I did not give your theme a poor rating, poor would have been one or no stars, not three stars. I also gave you constructive feedback on your theme based on my experience with other top selling themes on themeforest, themes I have used to build real client websites. I understand Mercina was your first theme and I believe it shows, hence the feedback. When I buy a theme I expect it to work, when it works well and makes my job easier, it gets a high rating and “good work, thank you” and I purchase that developers products again. I don’t expect to be spoken down to, have to deal with hurt feelings, and constantly be given links to video tutorials that don’t actually answer the question I have asked. But I understand it can be hurtful to receive constructive criticism, but it’s not about you as a person, it’s about your work and making the experience of using it better. I am sorry your feelings are hurt.

Hi,
Don’t worry about me: I’m mature enough to deal with not so pleasant comments. I also had a lot of rejections before my themes get approved so don’t worry that I can handle your comments perfectly. I just dislike when they seem to be saying that the theme is not working and it seems to be.
About your rating: yes it was constructive, but I work hard and everything less than a 5 star rating is bad for me. Now it is you who should not misinterpret what I am saying (at least I hope).
Anyway, enough of this subject… Let’s take care of support support: as far as I know I have replied to your question with the link that I sent. Let me know if I miss something.
Thanks!

Hi Pirenko,

When I submit the form, the contact form says that:

WARN?NG: MA?L() HAS BEEN D?SABLED FOR SECUR?TY REASONS ?N /HOME/MODAGEZ?/PUBL?C_HTML/WP-CONTENT/THEMES/MERC?NA/?NCLUDES/P?RENKO_CONTACT_FORM.PHP ON L?NE 22 FA?LED

You can check it via: http://www.modagezi.com/iletisim/

What is missing?

Hi, thank you for purchasing! Your hosting company is blocking sending emails via PHP. Please ask them to remove this restriction. Cheers!

hey Pirenko, i was trying to change the color of my menu to red, but it changed all text to red by default. How do I simply change the body text to black? I tried adding this in the Style PHP to the /BODY FONT/ part: font-color: #1C1C1C !important; Thank you :) PS, adding font-color: #1C1C1C !important; to Custom CSS doesn’t seem to change anything

My CSS knowledge is bad! What kind of CSS do I type to just change the Menu font class, and keep the other fonts as they are? Thanks so much :)

Here you go:
ul#menu-mercina_menu li a {font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;}
Cheers :nerdy:

You are amazing – really

Is there any way to set it so that “Use featured image on slideshow and Prettyphoto Lightbox?” is not pre-checked? Or at the least make it so that the featured image does not show a sample image if I have not uploaded one?

Hi, thank you for purchasing! Please send me a private message and I’ll send you a tweaked file with that option off by default. Thanks!

Hello- I cannot seem to get my blog’s previous posts to display? Here is a linkhttp://thinkinganimation.com/news/ Can you tell me what is wrong? I have over 2000 posts from blogger that I importred and converted to news items to work and now the blog will not show past the first page? Thanks Angie

No idea what that is, but I am googling it

I sent a message through your website, only way I could figure out how to contact you.

Hi,
I have just replied to the message you sent. The problem is that your page has the same slug as the News Items. I have changed the page slug and it seems to be fine now.
Cheers :)

HI Pirenko, happy new year! I need your help again please. I have two queries and I believe the solution will be custom CSS.

1. the bullet points in a list do not line up with the rest of the text (see http://meetdita.com.au/hidden/events/arty-parties/). I read through your support comments and you told another purchaser to change the css via custom css. I did some research and tried this code:

ul, ol { margin: 0 0 10px; padding: 0 0 0 15px; }

but that made the gallery section of the home page go out of alignment. Can you please give me the code to fix this issue with bullet point list not indenting properly?

2. The client does not want the categories to show up on the gallery page (see http://meetdita.com.au/hidden/gallery/ – note: only one category atm called Art because of this issue) , or the date/category/like options to show up on the individual gallery pages (see http://meetdita.com.au/hidden/pysche/).

3. I’ve found how to list a post(gallery) category under another heading but how do I exclude it from the post(gallery) posts? For example, my client wants her work to show up in the posts (gallery) section (see http://meetdita.com.au/hidden/gallery/), but wants her collective’s galleries to show up separate under their own section eg. Maitri Gallery. I can do this with displaying a category via the menu (see , my issue is how do I stop the Maitri Gallery category from showing up on the home page and the gallery page? I’ve tried using the category ‘art’ only in the menu, but that doesn’t solve the issue of the category Maitri Gallery from showing up on the home page, and the home page still points to the posts (gallery) page.

I did explain to my client that the theme was the one she chose ie. the gallery pages work the same way as the news(blog) pages, the home page is designed to automatically go to the gallery adn the gallery shows everything with categories etc and that’s just the way it is but they asked me to ask you anyway. So I asking on behalf of my client.

Except for the incorrectly indented bullet point list, that’s me – I can’t work out how to fix it and being a designer, things that don’t line up looks messy and it drives me crazy! ;) Thank you for the support. Charlie

Double post :)

Ooops sorry… not sure how that happened. :(

Thanks for fixing the issue with the contact forms Pirenko! (for other viewers, Pirenko changed the css file and made up a new php file to sort out the issue, and put it up on the site for me. now that’s service!)

Thank you for your feedback ;)

Anytime Pirenko, I always give credit where it’s due. Cheers!

Hello, can i ask you if your theme supports woocommerce; Thank you in adnvance

Hi,
Thank you for your interest! You can install WooCommerce and it will work (I know this, because other users have done that). Still you will probably want to make some css adjustments so that the shop looks like it belongs to the theme.
Cheers!

Thank you very much for your quick reply! Great theme!!

Hello, is it possible to add kirilica (russian letters) support for theme font?

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! Some of the fonts included with the theme already support those characters. If you want to add your own font please check this tutorial: http://www.pirenko.com/blog/2013/08/27/extra-fonts-plugin-by-pirenko/
Cheers!

Hello! I recently bought your theme and it is great! I am facing 2 problems: 1) The menu does not do the effect (slide down) when i click a menu item. Instead, when i click a menu item, the page opens and then i can see the submenu. 2) I have added 3 slides and i have checked the option them to be seen in homepage, but i cannot see none of them. What might be wrong?

Thank you in advance!

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! Here are my comments:
1) Please check this video tutorial http://www.pirenko.com/blog/2014/07/24/mastering-wordpress-menus/
2) Please turn OFF all the plugins that are not included with the theme and try again. If you still have trouble send me a private message with the WP login details so that I can analyze this situation
Cheers :)

Hi,

I was wondering what code I need to view the mobile version of the site as the desktop version looks. www.delgrippo.njm-designs.com

Thanks,

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! You can turn OFF responsiveness under Mercina Options>General tab. Cheers!

I bought the theme. But it is very hard to use. For example, Can not edit the home page or the head images must be entered manually . The click – portfolio images are not responsive etc.etc I ‘m not thrilled. I used another .

Hi,
Sorry to hear that :(
About your comments: the homepage can be managed under Mercina Options>Homepage tab. The homepage slide images are managed under the slides button and you don’t need to put the links manually. What you need to do is use the WordPress Featured Image option.
About the click/portfolio images thing: I’m not aware of any bug so maybe you can explain this with more detail.
If you decide to use the theme in the future and have any questions please let me know.
Thanks!

;o)

Hi,

I’ve been using this theme for a while, but now I’ve noticed that it’s not responsive. How do I fix this? My site is Diva Coffee

Thanks for your help.

Just re-saved the menu, now it appears again. Strange but it works.

Nope, not working again, can you have a look please?

Hi,

Hi Pirenko!

I’m having two issues with the Mercina theme.

One thing regards the headings font. If I choose one of the fonts down in the list (Bebas Neue, League Gothic, Novecento, OSP Din or TeX Gyre Heros), it is not displayed on the homepage at first. Instead a font that looks like Times New Roman or something. It doesn’t change if I hit refresh but if I click on ‘Home’ in the menu, the right font is displayed.

This is not a big issue for me as I will probably use a different font anyway, but I wanted you to know.

The other thing regards the page title, as shown on the browser’s title bar or on the tab. On the homepage it should read ‘Home – Website title’. Instead it just reads ’- Website title’. It works on other pages, like for example ‘Contact – Website title’.

Can you help me with that?

Hi,
Cheers :)

Hi Pirenko love the theme and the site looks great. Have a problem with a plugin conflicting with it though. This is a premium plugin from Themeforest called EventOn they gave me a lot of help and we have now discovered the issue is incompatibility with your theme.

The site is johnhallam.co.uk and on the diary page on first load something is not working as events are supposed to expand when clicked, if you click on the next month that works and then if you click back to first month that then also works. The only error message I got when testing with Firebug (and I’m no expert so it means nothing to me) was on the network test I got this message “Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘offsetWidth’ of null main.js.46” which clears on return visit. I don’t use a lot of the features of your template and was wondering if there is something I can disable that is causing this error/conflict.

Many thanks

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! That error seems to be related with some google maps element (not included with the theme). We hope this helps… If it doesn’t please send us a private message with the WP login details if possible.<nr>Cheers!

Hi Pirenko, I’m interested in buying this theme. I wanted to know if it’s possible to have the left menu fixed, when we scroll down the right content. Thanks in advance for your answer :) Nice day!

Hi,
Thank you for reaching us! Yes, that is possible with some lines of CSS that can be added to the theme options.
Let us know if you buy the theme and we’ll send you this piece of code.
Cheers ;)

Thanks for your super quick reply. Yes, I’ll let you know if I choose your theme Great work, by the way ;)

Thanks :nerdy:
