hello there again! I seem to have lost my pinterest logo from the prettyphoto lightboxes. Any ideas on how to get them back? My website it www.timelinemedia.com.au

Also, how can I stop the top slider image at the top of each page from linking to something strange? for example, on this page: http://www.timelinemedia.com.au/services/cd-dvd-authoring/ when the top image is clicked, it opens a section where it can be commented on. I do not wish for this to be a link at all. Also, the same thing from this page: http://www.timelinemedia.com.au/services/media-conversion/ seems to break it altogether.

Sorry to ask so many things, but I have had a hunt around, and can’t seem to find anything for myself. Thanks again for the great support, and constant updates! I have recommended the theme to two other people, who have also purchased it.

Hello and how are you? ;)
Here are your answers: 1 – I don’t see any theme prettyphoto lightboxes on the portfolio, because you have set the option to use only links. Send me a link to a page where you have this issue. 2 – I don’t know how you set up the code of those images, but you must have an “a” tag with a link pointing to something around the images. Give me access to your Wordpress Dashboard if you want me to look at it (send me a private message in this case).
Dont’ worry about all of the questions. Cheers!

I’m going well man, thanks for the prompt reply, as always!

If you look at this blog entry: http://www.timelinemedia.com.au/news/photographed-snow-2/ and click on an image, you will see a link to twitter and facebook, but no pinterest. Could this have something to do with me also have prettyphoto as a separate activated plugin? Not a huge hassle for me, but i have recently gotten into pinterest, and its good stuff. I will private message you the login for the broken image links. Thanks!
Pirenko

Hi,
This has to do with that plugin code. You must check why the “pp_social” value has only twitter and facebook when you initialize the plugin. Maybe somewhere on the plugin options you can change this value…

shandor887

Ok, so based on your comments, I have disabled the separate PrettyPhoto plugin. Huzzah! The homepage slider leading to a vimeo link opens in a lightbox, with all three social media links.

Only now, the images in the galleries underneath my news entries now do not open in a lightbox like they did before. Do I need to add a rel=”something” value to make these work? (eg http://www.timelinemedia.com.au/news/on-set-photography-transcendence/)

Also, did you manage to sort out those broken links? I sent you a login to do whatever you need to make it work. Thanks!

Hi again,
1 – I just fixed the http://www.timelinemedia.com.au/services/cd-dvd-authoring/ page. Like I explained before the problem was the “a” tag around the image. To fix the other pages you must edit their content by clicking on each image (the icon on top left to edit) and removing the Link URL value. If you are using the editor in HTML mode you must remove the “a” tag manually.
2 – About the lightbox: I think you should reenable the plugin and see if on the options there’s an option to avoid conflict with the theme (sometimes a footer hook or something) and see if it works. Other ways to do it (like the one you suggested) are more complicated to implement.
Cheers!

shandor887

Thanks for that – all fixed now, with the exception of having a pinterest button. I’m just not going to worry about it. Thanks for your help though, great support as always.

Just curious, what does the facebook like button do? I can’t see anything represented in the news feed or the ‘likes’ on my profile. I may not have very good facebook knowledge, but yeah not sure where this ‘like’ is registered. Thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
I just tested liking a portfolio entry on this theme and it showed up on my timeline on Facebook. If it’s not showing on yours it must have to do with your Facebook user settings.

Hello, I would like to take a look at the video tutorials for this theme but I’m not finding where they are. Could you help me? Thanx, Bia

Pirenko, where should I look to change the height of the homepage slider??

Nevermind, found it in the style.css. Attempted to add the style via the custom css field, but even when prioritize with !important, it was overridden because the style element is cloned inline.

Hi, I’ve been spending a considerable amount of time tonight trying to figure out how to get the post section to display the feature image as a video or pdf. I know on set featured image you can select video/other files, and you have the option to insert it into post. But that’s not what I’m after, i want to click an image on the portfolio and a video pops up or a pdf like on the preview on “City Life”. I feel there is something missing to tell it to do this, as I’ve copied a page exactly like city life, and it shows a magnifying glass rather than a video logo?

Hope you can help :)

Pirenko

Hi,
After setting up a featured image remove the ticker the option “Use featured image on slideshow and Prettyphoto Lightbox?” that you can find under Mercina Custom Post Options panel. In this case the theme will look for the second item on the lightbox and on the detail page for this post.
Cheers!

Default-user

Ahh! That’s great thanks. Can PDF ’s be used for this? Videos now work as you said. I want my portfolio to be a clickable only (i.e. on main menu>mercina>portfolio i have disabled links to appear). So when a user clicks on it, it opens the pdf in the pop up window instead. Is this possible?

If not would it be available in a future update?

Thanks again :)

Pirenko

You can try using an iframe or the inline option as shown on the plugin page: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/
Just add the code in the same way you do with the videos.

Ahh never thought of that! Works like a treat thanks :D

Just one last question – Are there any known problems with the advertising widget? I’ve entered everything into the widget, and followed the 200×250 dimension requirement (I actually used the image on the preview, just to see if that worked), here’s proof which displays the image preview – i saved it: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/48169762/widget.PNG This was the result, no image just the text: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/48169762/result.PNG

Any ideas why?

I also have your Queed theme and it works on that, but not on Mercina.

Thanks!

Pirenko

To see why I need access to your Wordpress Dashboard and website. If possible send me your Wordpress Login details using the contact form on my profile page. Thanks ;)

Hi There. I really love this theme ! My client wants to integrate a gallery into the theme, but retain the look and feel like the portfolio page. Could you please suggest what gallery plugin would work best?

thanx

Pirenko

Hi,
Here’s a good one: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/
By making some changes to the CSS styles you should be able to obtain something similar to the theme. Cheers :nerdy:

when will this be wp3.4 ready?

Thanks

Pirenko

It is already. Let me know if you have any trouble. Cheers!

i have many troubles, this theme is exceptionally buggy in 3.4!

Not found message when creating new pages, unable to remove the option to reply, etc, I just want to create a basic page with columns, text, etc.

Pirenko

Doesn’t really seem to have to do with the theme, because I have that version locally and on my server without any errors/warnings. Maybe some plugin or something. Send me a private message giving me access to your wordpress dashboard if possible. Thanks!

Hi there!

Great theme by the way!

How can I increase the amount of portfolio items on the homepage?

I would like to increase it to 6!

Many thanks,

Steve.

Pirenko

Hi,
Open the index.php file and somewhere near line 180 replace the ‘posts_per_page’ => 4 with ‘posts_per_page’ => 7. You’ll need to make some further CSS adjustments (to the normal and responsive layout) which I can only help you as a custom/paid work if you can’t do them. Send me a private message in this case.
Thanks!

right after having activated mercina theme 3.2 in WP 3 .4.1 i get:

Fatal error: Cannot use object of type stdClass as array in (removed)/wp-admin/menu.php on line 25

seems to work anyway

Pirenko

Pleasede activate all of the plugins you might have. Also reupload all the theme files. If the error subsists please send me a link using my profile page. Thanks!

I finally updated my site to the newest version of mercina, when I did though the sliders on the homepage seemed to stop working. you can see what I am talking about at my site http://www.ericmcfarland.net Did I do anything wrong when I updated? Thanks in advance!

Pirenko

Hi,
Apparently there’s some misconfiguration on the responsiveness option. From our WP dashboard go to Mercina Options and hit Save Options. That should do the trick.

Hi, quick question. I don’t use the lightbox option on the portfolio thumbnails so I’m currently just using the link. However, I’d rather not have to use the little link icon that shows up. Is it possible to change the thumbnail on the front page and portfolio pages so that they link straight through to the page no matter where you click, rather than making users click on the link icon?

Pirenko

Hi,
Try adding this code to your mercina_functions.js file located inside the js folder:
jQuery('.images_wrapper').click(function() { window.location.href=jQuery(this).parent().parent().find('.readmore_btn_holder').find('a').attr('href'); });
I haven’t tested it very much, but if doesn’t work send me an email through my profile page (in this case I can only do it as a custom/paid customization).

For some reason it’s not coming out as responsive for me. Can you check? Is this a bug? www.sxguru.com/NewSite/

Pirenko

Hi,
I’ll release an update in the next hours fixing this issue. In the meantime you can add this to the header of the header.php file:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
Thanks!

Hey Pirenko, has that bug fix been released yet?

Pirenko

Yes. Please download the file package again and update your files.

Thanks Pirenko!

Question; going through the comments I found a few people had integrated stores with Mercina. One in particular you took the discussion via email. I was wondering whether you could advise me on the best way to integrate a small store on the site. At the moment I’ve tried e-commerce and woocommerce but woo-commerce is formatting it all weird and e-commerce was a pain.

Pirenko

Hi,
The plugin that he used was http://docs.getshopped.org/
I had to help him customizing the styles. If you want to see what his website looks like send me a private message and I’ll send you a link.

Hello there.

Is there a way that the “news” section could show more than 2 news? Like 1 more row or something like that!

Thanx! Great theme.

Pirenko

Currently you can only do this manually. Open the index.php file and near line 375 edit the “posts_per_page” number. You’ll also need to make some extra CSS adjustments which are a bit more complex, but you should be able to do them if you have some CSS knowledge.

Hi there again, i have a little issue.

For example here: http://sabebien.cl/news/evil-needle-week-11/

Under the top image, some texts appear like the subject tags, and also the “volver a noticias” that means, back to news.

Any way, thos fonts are looking big, i tried to change the H5 style, but it doesnt change, only other things change, not that one.

How can i fix it?

Thanx!

Pirenko

Add this to your Custom CSS textfield under Mercina Options>General Tab:
.news_meta h5 {font-size:11px}

The custom css worked well, but…do u think there is a padding error? because the arrow es touching the text.

Thanx.

Pirenko

Add this extra CSS :
.fluid_single_ttl #mini_menu {margin-top:-22px;}

About the home page news section, i changed the number to 4, but nothing happened. I dont really know about CSS soy maybe if its possible, u could help. This is the site.

www.sabebien.cl

Thnx!

Pirenko

Changing that value is not enough and it requires other changes to the code. I can only do this as a custom/paid job. Send me an email through my profile page if you’re interested. Thanks!

Hahaha, is the first time in my whole themeforest experience that i get such an answer.

How much money are we talking about?

Pirenko

I never give quotes for customizations here. Send me a message through my profile page if you’re interested.
About your “Hahaha” please notice that this is a customization of the theme, it’s not a bug correction or something similar. And once again I pointed you the directions, so you can “dig” into the code and try to make it work. Cheers!
