Hi hi. Loving the theme as per usual. Question though; how can I put some styled text above the portfolio page? I need to explain what the portfolio images are.

Pirenko

Hi,
If you are using one of the latest theme versions all you have to do write whatever you want on the content of that page.
Thanks!

Default-user

Great. What’s the latest theme number? I’ve tried writing it in there but nothing appears on the portfolio page

Pirenko

Hi,
I’m sorry, but this is only available on the Queed theme. Send me a message through my profile page and I’ll send you a tweaked php file that allows what I just told you.
Cheers :nerdy:

HI, How can I add a video in the news section? I have tried uploading it but it doesnt show – any ideas?

Thanks

Pirenko

This theme doesn’t support self hosted videos. You need to place it on Youtube or Vimeo or something similar. In alternative you can use a plugin to play self hosted videos.
Thanks!

Thanks – on a different matter, what is the ideal size for the background image so that it is not stretched?

Pirenko

Depending on the screen configuration the image will always stretch in some devices/orientations. Anyway to find a good compromise betwen size in pixel, image quality in larger screens and download time I would recommend 1600×1200 pixels (try to keep it under 200kb).

Hey Pirenko, I’m trying to alter the look of h3. I’ve added this to my CSS in the settings page but nothing is happening; what have I done wrong?

h3 {font-size: 14px; font-color: #0094FF; font-weight: normal; text-transform:lowercase}

Pirenko

Hi,
Apparently you’re doing everything correctly. Try adding !important after each property. If this doesn’t work please send me a link to where you are trying to do this. Thanks!

Hi, I can’t see the featured images on the news of the blog. :crying: What could be the problem? Thank you very much!

Pirenko

It should have to do with timthumb script permissions. Please check the theme faq and if it doesn’t solve this issue send me a link to your website (send me a private message if you prefer).
Cheers!

Pirenko—In regards to the AnythingSlider, I was having an issue with the the color of the slide Title and the background color of the Sub Title. I couldn’t find the CSS where they were located, but used this fix in the Custom CSS box:

div#mercinaslidetop_1.headings_top.slide_video h3 { color: #020000; }

div#mercinaslidebody_1.headings_body { background-color: #020000; }

Was this the proper route? Please advise (http://vongreen.com)

Update: I was using version 2.1 Mercina. I am updating now to the newest version. Still curious tho..

Pirenko

Hi,
What’s the problem you are having with those colors? They are supposed to be different/inverted…
Thank you for purchasing!

the title background color was a weird brown, #422222, not in any of my color scheme, so i used the above code to manually fix it. the inversion is fine, it was just that i was not seeing a way to change the #422222 colour

Pirenko

Strange… If you have any issues with this please give me access to your wordpress dashboard for testing (send me a private message).

The above fix still works in version 3.2—still curious as if this was the proper way to solve the issue.

Unrelated, for the Navigation in the responsive design, is there a way to change the ”...” that is the default first option in the drop down menu?

Pirenko

Hi,
To make that change to the menu you have to open the functions.php file and on line 906 change the ’...’ to whatever you want.

Hey mate, I want to get rid of the uppercase title text. I tried following one of your previous comments, and edited some small things in the mercina_theme.php file, as well as style.css, but with no luck!

Is there something I can paste into the custom CSS field in the Mercina settings tab?

Pirenko

Hi,
You have to locate the styles classes or id’s you want to change and add this CSS property to each one of them:text-transform:none !important;
In alternative you can edit manually the style.css file and mercina_functions.php file so that there’s no uppercase transformation (just search for “uppercase” on those files and remove the respective lines of code).
Cheers!

Thanks loving this responsive design. Two more questions..

In the left sidebar, there is a hyphen “—” showing up to the left of the social media icons. How do I remove this?

Also, is there a way to have the navigation sub-menu’s already open under their parent? I don’t want users to have to click to see the sub-menu.

Pirenko

Hi,
I have removed that hyphen using CSS on your Dashboard. The second thing I can only implement as a custom/paid job.
Cheers :nerdy:

is there a way to add more glyphs to the footer? (its too short – my html-code wont fit…)

Pirenko

Did you try placing a <br /> tag?
Send me a link if you still need some sort of help. Thanks!

Hi, is it possible to fix the position of the background image so that it is fixed to topleft, then havving it fade into the background colour (i will work the fade in photoshop) I want to do this so that it wont stretch the image which it is doing in both Chrome and FF

Thanks

Pirenko

Hi,
You need to edit the mercina_functions.js file. Search for the script inside the “pirenko_resize” function and make the necessary changes.

Loving teh support as much as the theme! Question; how do I make the writing stop coming up in capitals on the contact page: not the title; the body: see here> http://sassyzen.com/contact-us-2/
Pirenko

Hi,
Add this to the Custom CSS textfield:
#contact-form_wrapper h3 {text-transform:none !important;}
Cheers :nerdy:

THANKS ! that solved it!

Hey Pirenko, I think this might be my final question. I have added some HTML to the homepage content box and it seems to have messed up the responsiveness of the site. Is there a way round this or to fix this?

Pirenko

Hi,
There might be some unclosed tags or something on that HTML code. Send me a private message with a link to your website. Thanks!

Loving this theme. For the mobile version only, is there anyway to get the Homepage Large Title and Subtitle to appear under the Logo?

Pirenko

Hummm. That requires some extra scripting, because we need to duplicate that section and make it appear only on small screens (and also make disappear the original). I can only do this as a custom/paid job.
Send me a private message if you’re eventually interested. Thanks.

I’m going to be purchasing this theme in a couple min’s. Question. Could you make the left column not scroll except when the window is smaller than the left column content? Only on the full size view not the smaller window sizes.

Thanks, DG.

Pirenko

If you turn the theme responsiveness off you’ll have this behavior. Anyway I assume you want that option active so send me an email after purchasing the theme and I’ll see if it’s possible to do it.
Thanks!

I have tried adding custom CSS but it does not work? Yes, I added the !important; I assume it’s a permission problem? If so, what does it need to be set to, 755?

.body {background-color: #000 !important; } This works fine if I add to the Style.css.

Another question. I need to have many self hosted videos. Will they still work within the portfolio pages, same as you have now? Or will I need to do them as a link and then just have a banner image with the video below within the content area of the post?

Thanks. DG.

Pirenko

Hi,
Send me a private message with a link to your page so that I can analyse the CSS issue you are saying.
As for the self hosted videos the slider supports them but you’ll need a plugin to play them. Here’s an example of one using an object tag: http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/12538/supported-player-embed-methods#jwembedder
Cheers!

Hello. My English is very bad. Sorry.

I have a problem. I can not add the section Slider, portfolio and blog from the Home Menu. I get: ooops! page not found. I deleted the Mercina_menu and create my own. Is that the problem? How I can fix it? My page is http://7vectores.com/

Thank you very much.

Pirenko

Hi,
This should not be related with the theme. Try activating one of the default wordpress themes and see if the problem subsists.
A solution might be changing the permalink settings under Settings>Permalinks on your Wordpress Dashboard.
Thank you for purchasing!

Hi Pirenko, There is a problem on the homepage with the “news” when the site is turn on “not responsive”...and so with the image background when it’s “responsiveness” > when you move the windows the image is “moving”. You can chek it at www.marcelpixel.fr. Can you fix this???? Thanks a lot.

Pirenko

Hi,
What’s the problem with the news? Also what theme version are you using?
Thanks!

Pirenko I’m using Mercina wordpress. My english is not good enough to explain but , i try > when i put a third item on the news, the block news on the homepage is moving (the second Item goes on the bottom of the first..) I ve fix it in turning on “responsivness”, but now my background is going “elastic” when i reduce the window…very uggly. Hope it’s clear …. www.marcelpixel.fr

Pirenko

To fix the background image resizing this add this to your Custom CSS textfield located under Mercina Options>General Tab:
#full-screen-background-image { max-width:10000px; max-height:10000px; }
If you have any further issues please send me a private message.

ok thanks Pirenko.. thats a very cool theme and very easy to use !

Pirenko

Great! Thanks ;)
