Hi Pirenko,

thank you for this theme. It is absolutely great. I have set up my webpage http://arquitecturaenestudio.com/ with it and I love it! I feel proud of my beginner’s work…

I am trying to set up an extra page in it, to be accessed from the main menu, and that should only contain a slider (just like the one on the homepage but with different images) I haven’t been able to do it. It looks like I can only have one slider, one news page and one portfolio. Am I right? is there a way to add a page with another (different) slider?

Thank you!

Pirenko

Hi,
You can set up another slider using a shortcode like shown here: http://www.munto.net/mercina/shortcodes/
Take a quick look at the documentation and send me a private message if you still need help with this.
Thank you for your kind comments :nerdy:

Hi,

I’ve just bought your theme and need a little help on a couple of things.

1. How do I disable the comments bit on the pages/blog sections?

2. There are no shortcodes for ‘Lists’ in the documentation. Could you tell me these please?

Thats it! Fantastic theme!

Thanks.

Default-user

Worked out no.1, just need the list shortcodes now!

Pirenko

Hi,
You can see them here: http://www.munto.net/mercina/shortcodes/

Is there a way to add other font options to this theme?

Default-user

Specifically wanted to use upper and lower case letters for side menu

Pirenko

Hi,
Under Mercina Options>General tab you can choose from a predefined number of fonts. Cheers!

Hi, I just installed the theme and some uni-test.xml sample data. When I go to the contact us page doesn’t show google maps or anything described in the help. Just NO COMMENTS WERE MADE YET. BE THE FIRST! LEAVE A REPLY and a Field. Thanks for help!

Pirenko

Hi,
Is that page template the Contact Page? If so please send me a private message with your WP login credentials if possible. Cheers :)

That was ist, wrong template file. Thank you!

Hi, I’d like to have two different static portfolio pages, each corresponding to a category. How can I manage that? Thanks!

Default-user

Hi, I’d like to include more social media links like bandcamp. Is there a wider set of icons available or a PSD template for creating them in the same way as the existing ones? Thanks

Default-user

Hi, how can I hide date, author, likes and category from the posts and news? Thanks

Pirenko

Hi,
Here are my comments to your 3 questions:
1 – Appearance>Menus and add the categories that you need (if you can’t see any categories click on Screen Options on the top right of the page);
2 – The icons that are being used are located at includes/theme_widgets/pirenko-social-links. You’ll also find there the social.php file if you want to add or edit the current icons;
3 – For this I suggest that you use some custom CSS (add display:none; to the the elements you want to hide);
Cheers!

Hi, thanks very much for your fast answering, really a pleasure! A question about the portfolio based pages: I have a page based on portfolio and linked to the category “vision”. All posts with cat=vision are displayed. But in the lightbox preview all images of all posts show up not only the one corresponding to the selected post, how can I change that? How can I integrate direct youtube embed in the portfolio scheme? How can I integrate soundcloud links in the portfolio scheme? Thanks so much!

Pirenko

Hi,
You can change the lightbox behavior by editing the archive.php. Check the prettyphoto documentation for more info.
Youtube: under each post content you have option to add multiple images/videos. Just add there a youtube iframe code (click on share on Youtube website).
Soundcloud: works exactly like I just described for youtube.
Cheers!

Default-user

Hi, I’ve got some more questions: How can I hide the categories in the portfolio page? How can I hide the post details a(date, time, author, like) on pages? How can I hide the possibility to leave a comment on pages an news page? Is there a way to wrap a soundcloud widget inside a floating div ( see: http://www.christianbiegai.com/wpx/?page_id=25), I’d like to display them in a way homologues to the portfolio tiles? Could you send me also some sample xml content? Thanks for your continuous help!

Pirenko

Hi,
Hiding categories and all those elements can be achieved by adding some CSS code to the theme options (Mercina Options>General tab>Custom CSS).
About comments management: http://www.munto.net/blog/2012/10/08/disabling-wordpress-comments/
Soundcloud: I don’t know what you want to do, but the theme will let you do whatever you want as long as you use the proper page content;

Hi there, I’m struggling with back_magnifier_grid.png image postitioning in the portfolio page. I replaced it with an image with different size but on hover it moves to the right due to – my guess – this inline style added to the img tag. I can’t find out where these 83 pixels come from! Can you help? Thanks a lot!

Pirenko

You’ll have to edit manually the mercina_functions.js file located on the js folder. Cheers!

Default-user

Hello, almost done. One last thing: I’d like to change the color of home_post_title_grid (portfolio post title animated from bottom) from #2a2a2ato #1a568a. Custom css with .home_post_title_grid{color:#1a568a;} didn’t work. Thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
Try using the !important notation. Example:
.home_post_title_grid{color:#1a568a !important;}

Hi there,

I’m really interested in this theme, there are some questions before I decide to buy:

1. I want to use the design of portfolio page to be my homepage, each image is displayed here is no longer an item of portfolio, but it represents to a subpage. For this purpose: - Can I change/remove the mouse-over effect on a thumbnail in portfolio? So that I can make it not look like a portfolio item anymorel - Can I remove the filter on the top right of the portfolio page?

2. Can I make a portfolio page with 2 columns only?

Thanks,

Pirenko

Hi,
1- But with subpage is it a page similar to a portfolio single page? If yes all the rest can be implemented and I can give you a hand so that you can hide the mouse-over effect and filter;
2 – This is currently not an option and can only be implemented by making some CSS changes. I would say it requires medium CSS knowledge;
Cheers!

Default-user

It’s so great to have your feedback promptly, I love that!

1. For subpage, the layout would be image on top (or no image), and copy below. No date, number of comment/like…below the image. No comment section at the bottom of the page.

Actually I do want the mouse-over effect, but can I change the icons appears (not magnifying glass/ hyperlink icons) to something else that makes it look like user is going to land to a subpage of a website (ex: Service page), not a portfolio item? (Let me know if my explanation is not clear enough)

2. If you do that for us, how much will it cost to modify this css part to make 2 columns happen.

Pirenko

Send me a private message through my profile page and I’ll send you a quote for number 2. As for number 1 all can be achieved with some extra CSS (although I don’t know what you mean with “copy below”).
Cheers!

Hi Pirenko,

I bought your theme and I’m using it here. http://divacoffee.com.au/

Is there any way to add a standard blog page? Like a shortcode to blog posts? The news format doesn’t suit me.

Thanks, Jim.

Pirenko

Hi,
Create a page and select News Page as the “Template” on the right side panel.
Thanks!

I just updated your theme and I only have one problem. When I click on a menu item with sub pages it goes directly to a blank page. This wouldn’t be a problem if it was an actual page but its just a category with no content. It used to stay on the page you were originally on until a sub-menu was selected. Any help with this? I don’t remember changing this function in the past but I could be wrong.

Pirenko

Hi,
That does not seem to have to do with the update. Anyway, turn off all your plugins and try again. If it still does not work like you expect please send me a private message with a link.

Hi Pirenko, I would like the post categories to default to a Post Category of my choice, that possible?

Pirenko

Hi,
I’m sorry, but I don’t understand exactly what you want to do. Can you explain more clearly?

hi! just wondering if there is a way to add on a captcha onto the contact part? my site is getting alot of robot spam from the contact form – so i would like to put in a human verification captcha if possible.

thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
You can try using a plugin for this or as an alternative install the well known Contact Form 7 plugin to create a brand new email form.
Cheers!

Hi,

Just updated the theme, but the site is not responsive in iphone? It just displays as normal.

Thanks in advance.

Pirenko

Hi,
Please go to Mercina Options and save the options just like they are. This will save the “new” responsiveness option.
Cheers!

Hi! I’m wondering if its possible with this theme to have at homepage a section pretty much like the portfolio block (square thumbails) but with the latest post. Thank you.

Pirenko

Hi,
Any page that you see on the preview can be your homepage. “Squared thumbnails” are only for portfolio entries. Do you want them for your blog? This should not be a problem as long as the single portfolio posts page layout is good for your blog too.
I hope this was clear. Cheers!

Hello,

How can I change the order of slides on the front page. I want to have them appear in a specific order.

Hi Pirenko,

I’m having a major problem with the theme at the moment.

The site will not load any content and just displays a blank background. It was fine a couple of days ago and I’ve not made any changes. See here www.fatfreemusicvideo.co.uk

I’ve activated other themes and they work fine, but Mercina doesn’t

Any idea what could be causing this?

Pirenko

Hi,
Do you have any active plugins? If so please turn them off for a moment. Please update also the theme and Wordpress.
Cheers!

Default-user

I’ve done all those things and the site is still blank?

Pirenko

There are still some plugins active and your theme version is not the latest (but this should not be a problem).

Default-user

Hi, I’ve deactivated all plugins. My theme is 3.6, yes you are right. I want to fix this before I upgrade. Any ideas on the issue?

Pirenko

It seems that you are not taking this the right way. I still see things related with anything slider. This means that you have manually changed the theme files or that you still have some active plugins.
Send me a private message with your WP login details if you prefer and I’ll turn everything off and re-upload the original 3.6 files.
Cheers!

Default-user

I’ve send you a PM just now. Thank you for your help. Let me know of any update. Much appreciated!

Pirenko

Ok. Cheers!

Default-user

Any luck?

Pirenko

I haven’t checked this yet. Give me some hours to reply to your email.
Cheers!

Pirenko

The problem was related with a duplicate function name on the twitter widget. All sorted now ;)

Hi! Great looking theme! I would like to know, before purchasing, am I able to have a 4 column portfolio instead of 3?

Please let me know and I’ll purchase if it’s possible.

Thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
No, but I have another theme with a menu on the left theme waiting for approval that has this option. If you want a sneak peak send me a private message through my profile page. Thanks!

Hello!

I am curious how to change the font color of only the menu items? I would like the menu items to be white, while the body font color to be black. I have not been able to figure it out either through the standard options page or in the CSS. Thanks so much!

Pirenko

Hi,
If you want the body color to be different you need to add some custom CSS under Mercina Options>General tab. Here’s a sample:
ul#menu-mercina_menu li a {color:#FFFFFF !important;}
Cheers!

Default-user

Thank you so much for your prompt reply! One more question – what would be the code to use to turn the bottom sidebar links white as well?

Pirenko

Try #footer a {color:#FFFFFF !important;}
See ya :grin:

Hi, I have a question. It seems that your theme is adding unwanted <br />and<p></p> tags. I have partly solved the problem by adding raw tags around my HTML. Unfortunately this is not possible on my form page. http://roessli-rickenbach.ch/wp_ro/kontakt I’m using formidable. And on formidable support page I have found following information:

Several themes are adding extra space between field labels, the required symbol, and fields. WordPress adds HTML (

and
) automatically, and some themes send it through this WP filter multiple times which adds paragraphs and line breaks inside the form. In many of these themes, you can fix this by adding [raw] around your form shortcode. raw[/raw] If the [raw] option does not work, you will likely need to contact your theme author to find out how to prevent the theme from filtering the content multiple times.

Thank you for your help Kind regards Michael

Pirenko

Hi,
Please turn off all the plugins you may have and try again. If this does not work send me a private message through my profile page. I’ll ask you for that page code then so that I can test it locally.

Hi, great theme! With Archive/portfolio items, how can I make the whole image/title link to the post, instead of just a link icon? Thanks

Pirenko

Hi,
The thumbs there behave like the portfolio “normal” page. If you want to change if you’ll need to edit manually the archive.php file.

Hi Pirenko,

I would really love to use your Mercina Wp theme. I would like to know before to buy if you or someone you know has tried to add an e-commerce plugin, if yes, which one and it would be great to see a real example.

Thanks! Mon

Pirenko

Hi,
Why don’t you try my latest theme: http://themeforest.net/item/samba-colored-wordpress-theme/5691055
It is WooCommerce compatible and you can make it look similar to mercina (you can change fonts and background easily). If you try the theme preview click on the screen that says less colors.
You can try and install Woocommerce with mercina, but you’ll have to adjust some styles to make it look really good.
Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks for your quick answer! I still like more Mercina … Im going to look at both carefully to try to decide. Cheers!

Pirenko

Ok. Let me know if you need any help or explanation. Cheers!

Hello, I really liked the theme, but not the slideshow images are not showing up, I’ve already changed the permissions of files and the problem still persists, the website link is www.claricemilano.com.br / web Can you help me solve the problem? thank you

Pirenko

Hi,
This has to do with the permissions as you can see here: http://claricemilano.com.br/web/wp-content/themes/mercina/includes/plugins/timthumb.php?src=http://claricemilano.com.br/web/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/003.jpg&w=713&h=380
If you want me to double check this please send me a private message with your FTP details.
