Hi Pirenko,

Sorry last question, i try to change the color of this box, where can i found this on the css ? http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/3251/screenheo.jpg

Thx

Pirenko

Hi,
That color is set under Mercina Options>General tab and it’s the “Content background color”. On the same section you can adjust the transparency under the “Custom Opacity” option.
Cheers!

Hey Pirenko,

i want to customize the order on the Frontend. Switching positions for different items and such things without having to change the Date for each post. Do you think there are any ways to achieve that?

Im having another problem, just went on to my Website and none of the Images are working anymore. Im getting this error message:

Warning: fopen(./cache/timthumb_int_34a25e40393ea55db0bf50910b65fc8c.timthumb.txt.lock) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /www/htdocs/w008cb0e/themendeko/wp-content/themes/mercina/includes/plugins/timthumb.php on line 803

The following error(s) occured: Could not open the lockfile for writing an image.

Query String : src=http://www.themendeko.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/29_nathan.jpg&w=713 TimThumb version : 2.8.10

Thank you! Marc

Pirenko

But what criteria do you want to use for sorting the posts?
About the error: as you can see by the description it has to do with the timthumb image resizing script. Please check the FAQ page (4th question).
Cheers!

Hi is there any way to not copy people on their email when they use the contact form? Also, any way to add text instructions to the subject part of contact page?

Thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
Both of the things you say can be achieved by editing the pirenko_contact_form.php file that’s inside the includes folder.
Thank you for purchasing!

Great Theme, where can i find the dummy content (xml file) to import it.

thanks a lot!

Thanks a lot!!! could it be that there are some pics missing?

Pirenko

This is just some dummy content. The images used on the preview aren’t included on the package (like the other themes used here). For those you have to edit the posts with some that you might already have on your server.
I hope this was clear.

Hi Pirenko,

This is our work in progress blog – http://www.century-properties.com/blog/

My question is this: I need our blog to have sections as you can see in the menu – so how do I link the blog posts to these sections.

Thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
From your Dashboard Go to Appearance>Menus and add them from the Subjects Window on the left side (should appear at the very bottom). If you can’t see it make sure it’s selected from the Screen Options on the top right corner of the same page.

additional question – where in the php sections do i edit the “follow me on twitter” text

Pirenko

I’ll make this text editable via the widget panel on the next update. In the meantime open the pirenko-twitter.php and edit the text (it’s at the bottom of the file). This file is located on the includes>theme_widgets>pirenko-twitter.
See ya ;)

great support for a great theme. just another question, where in the php files do i edit the size and color of the default article – i find the default text too light and too small.

also is there a way to create a related post or newer/previous post navigation under each blog post?

thanks!

Pirenko

Both of the things you are saying can be changed on the single-merc_news.php file. About the font color, I remind that you can change it under Mercina Options>General Tab>Inactive color, but it will apply all over the website.
For the navigation you can replicate what you have on the single.php file for the portfolio. You can use the same code: previous_post_link_plus and next_post_link_plus and the rest is CSS .
Thank you for your kind comments :nerdy:

Hello!

I’m loving using this theme & its so easy to use, I have one big question – is it possible to add a 2nd portfolio page with different items to the first portfolio page? How can I do this??

Thank you so much!

Pirenko

Hi,
Currently that’s not possible, but I can help you setting up things if the second portfolio fits in a single category (meaning you don’t need to divide it in subcategories). Send me an email through my profile page if this is the case.
Cheers!

Hi Pirenko,

Thanks for your help a couple of weeks ago. Again, fantastically quick responses and your advice was spot on for all of my questions!

I’ve got a few more for you:

1) I’ve noticed that the left sidebar only intermittently scrolls down with the rest of the page and sometimes stays fixed. (I’ve tried this on IE, FF and Chrome with the same result) not a massive problem, but means that the twitter widget gets cut off.

2) Is there a way to add custom social links to the widget? I’ve made buttons in a similar style to the existing ones for iTunes, Spotify, ReverbNation and BigCartel but I’m not sure how to add them to the .php file. I was thinking it would be handy to have an “Add custom buttons” link in the widget options in wordpress.

3) I saw another user mention the addition of forward/back buttons in lightbox. If this can be implemented, it would be really handy for my “Gallery” section (which is made up of category posts). If it’s possible, I’d be keen to find a way to remove the chain-link icon for these posts, and only have the magnifying glass icon visible with maybe a “view” tooltip or some custom text under the magnifying glass.

My progress so far: http://alteredsky.com/wordpress

Thanks again,

Rich

Hi,
Here’s some feedback.
1 – I think this only happens with the twitter widget, because sometimes it shows the tweets after the page being loaded. I’m going to make some tests and will improve this on the next update.
2 – You can do it manually by adding the code on the widget files. If you prefer send me those icons and I’ll make them available in the next update.
3 – The buttons are are already available on the latest update and they navigate between all the posts and not all the images inside a post. I’m unsure about what you want to change…

is there a way to make the portfolio images just show larger sizes of the thumbnails without having a link to a description of the thumbnail? For my portfolio i just want thumbnails that show a larger version of the image when clicked on. Is it possible for just the magnifying glass to show and be centered so it acts more like a gallery? Thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
That option will be available within hours on the next update. If you buy the theme in the meantime, send me an email and I’ll send you the files with that option included.

Hi Pirenko,

ik have some problems with the slider pics. Please check www.borrel071.nl

I used the dimensions 680×420. The theme is up to date.

Thanks!

Pirenko

Hi,
What slider are you talking about? And what is the problem? Across all the website the correct width is 713px and on the homepage the default height is 380px.
Thank you for purchasing :nerdy:

Hi Pirenko,

Following my comment before I just tried to install another instance of mercina into a subdirectory and it has made my main site disappear disabling all my log in information – do you have any idea why?

If not i will rebuild my site and then contact you about creating a 2nd portfolio page. But any suggestions on why I have lost my main site I would be very appreciated. Thanks Angie

Pirenko

This is not a child theme so you should not create multiple instances of it. Probably all the theme options got mixed and this is causing conflicts. I can try to help you if you give me access to your wordpress dashboard (send me an email if you want).
If not, I can help you with the creation of a second portfolio page with only 1 category (not multiple like I explained you before).

I’m having the issue in the FAQs where the images arent loading on the homepage. Do I have to have wordpress installed on my computer to fix it or am I able to do it somehow through the wordpress site?

Pirenko

I think this is related with the other reply I just posted. If this is not the case please send me a link (you can use my email). :nerdy:

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

I think its the same problem as what is posted in the FAQs, my homepage just has a comment box and none of the sliders are showing up. Is that the same issue?

Pirenko

Hi,
Looks like you have a static page as your homepage. To have a homepage similar to the one displayed on the preview go to your Dashboard>Settings>Reading>Front page displays and make sure it says Your latest posts.
Cheers!

I am interested in buying this theme. Is it possible to adjust the size of the image that is shown at the top of the blog posts? How can I best display Portrait/vertical images (rather than horizontal/portrait) both in the blog post and in the list of blogs? What options exist to adjust the image size and/or the orientation of the image? Thanks

Pirenko

Hi,
Currently the theme forces the image witdth to 713px wide and 220px in height. By removing the height constraint automatically the content will adjust vertically, so we just have to remove that sentence. In this case by opening the mercina-template.php and simply removing these 5 letters “h=220” from the file.
Let me know if you buy the theme and need help with it. Thanks :nerdy:

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Anyway you can provide an example of how this might look? Thanks

Pirenko

Hi,
Please check this page on the preview: http://www.munto.net/mercina/our-blog/
The third post now has a much taller image. Cheers!

Default-user

So is the width fixed at 713px or can I make that shorter? What will happen if I do that – is the image centered above the post? Also, can I change the size of the image showing above each of the blog posts on this page to correspond with the size of the image within the blog post? http://themeforest.net/item/mercina-wpress-theme/full_screen_preview/2056656 Thanks

Pirenko

The theme makes sure all the images have 713px. This is because “we” don’t want any blank spaced on the side of the images. If you place a smaller image it will proportionally stretch.
All of this can be easily changed if you don’t want to stretch images for some reason.
Once more, if you buy the theme and need any help please let me know.

Thank you for the great theme. Just wondering, if I can move all menus on left side bar to right. Thanks~~Pirenko

Pirenko

This will require some changes to the CSS files and also to some JS scripting. Due to involving JS scripts I can only do it as a custom/paid job.
Email me through my profile page if you are interested.

I know that someone else already asked this, but you asked for them to email you. Is there a way to divide the portfolio section up with drop down links that go to different sections of the portfolio? Such as portfolio-> portraits and have that go directly to the portraits section rather than my entire portfolio? Hopefully I’m making sense. Thanks so much for your help!!

Pirenko

Got to your Dashboard>Appearance>Menus and select the mercina_menu.
Then just add items from the Categories Panel on the left side to the menu. You’ll be creating pages similar to this: http://www.munto.net/mercina/category/video/
You can place them “below” the portfolio (submenu) or just as a main link ;)

Awesome thanks so much!!!
