Hi, I see in your profile the blog styles page is like this: http://wp.color-theme.com/metric/blog-3/

But when I put in my site (this is temporary) it is like this : http://avi.my/isewacademy/category/blog/

What I am doing is, adding the blog posts under post. Do i need to make it as a page? If I do make it as a page, how do I make it appear under blog?

ZERGE

Hi,

You need to create a blog page. Create a new page and select the appropriate template for your blog (style 1 or 2).

At this moment link http://avi.my/isewacademy/category/blog/ does not point to the blog, it displays posts category ‘blog’

Default-user

Ah, thank you. But how do I make only the first paragraph or certain part to appear like yours? Mine just spits out the whole entry.

I do not quite understand what you want. Now your blog looks like in the demo.

Default-user

Oh, what I meant is, in your blog you have say two para of lorem ipsum. And when the reader clicks more, he/she goes to a page that has more contents. For mine it basically shows EVERYTHING in the page itself so that reading more is not really useful.

This makes the contents not well aligned. So how can I limit the contents to appear in the blog page so that user can read more in their specific posts.

I am also interested to change my own icon. I tried an example say http://avi.my/isewacademy/wp-content/themes/wp-metric/images/icons.png but it did not change my icon (I used icon 1) in the FAQ page http://avi.my/isewacademy/faq/

May I ask how I can change my own icon?

If you need an active url, I will have to send it to your email. Just let me know.

You can add new class

.side-bar h5

and define new font-size.

Is it possible to have one portfolio post in two seperate portfolio categories. If you do this it will only appear in only one of the categories when you click on the sorting links at the top of the portfolio

Hi,

Is it possible to only show one category of Portfolio posts on each Portfolio Templates

eg. I have two categories Current Projects & Completed Projects.

I want to show Current Projects on the Portfolio One Template & Completed Projects on Portfolio Two Template.

Thansk

ZERGE

Hi,

By default you can’t do this. Only if you make 2 different templates for each category and change php code.

Hey!

I’m trying to install the theme but once I press activate the screen hits white. I have tried both uploading the zip file through wp-admin as well as uploading the theme through an ftp-client.

What should I do?

Thanks!

ZERGE

Hi,

Strange problem, not encountered. Can you give access to your WP admin panel? Send me a message through my profile.

Hi Zerge,

I recently purchased this theme and mostly had everything setup, when the slider stopped working. http://nevadaeva.com/

As you can see, the space is provided, but the images no longer load. This is the same on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. I’ve tried removing & adding slider images, and have reset all options. Still, nothing loads. Am I missing something here?

I haven’t done any backend work, just asset design & placement.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

Try to disable some WP plugins.

Yep, that’s what it was. Thanks. Apparently Jetpack analytics doesn’t play well with the slider. Oh well, there’s always google analytics.

Thanks Zerge

Hi Zerge,

I’m trying to find the shortcode or plugin that you used on the demo homepage for the 4 blog spotlights. Could you point me in the right direction?

Many thanks, Cary

ZERGE

Hi,

1. In the file home.php you need to add code:
<?php get_template_part( 'includes/homepage','posts' ); ?>

2. Create a new file ‘includes/homepage-posts.php’ like a ‘includes/homepage-portfolio.php’ (just clone)

3. In the file ‘includes/homepage-posts.php’ change
'post_type' => 'portfolio'

to

'post_type' => 'post'

Thanks Zerge, working great now. Since you have this functionality displayed in the theme demo, could you also add it into the theme as a shortcode or something easier for people with no FTP & PHP background? Many thanks.

For others looking to do this…
1) Go first to Dashboard>Appearance>Editor>HomePage Page Template (((which is also home.php)))
2) Add the code from Verge’s post in #1. I added the code just before ”<?php get_footer(); ?>”, which seemed to work fine.
3) Go to your hosting FTP account (mine is with GoDaddy), then to FTP File Manager.
4) Navigate to WP Content>Themes>WP Metric>Includes
5) Copy & rename “homepage-portfolio.php” to “homepage-posts.php”
6) Go back to your WP editor at Dashboard>Appearance>Editor
7) Locate the homepage-posts.php page Do step #3 from Zerge’s post above.

Excellent, cdcrites! ;)

Hi ZERGE ,

First let me say the theme is really nice.

Now I would like to report a few things which needs to be fixed, as you can see I have encountered the same problem as Joakim-SB.

After successful install of the theme everything went white a nothing worked, so I turned my Error report on and after some research I came to a conclusion.

The are 3 issues which needs to be addressed and bare in mind that all this issues is due to the new php 5.4+ which you have to make compatible with.

The first issue that I have found is as follow.

Fatal error: 'continue' operator with non-constant operand is no longer supported in /path/wp-content/themes/wp-metric/functions.php on line 259

Answer: correct the continue condition from line 259 and 329 in functions.php.

Fix:
 
#replace
continue delete_post_meta($post_id, $key);
#with
delete_post_meta($post_id, $key); continue;

php 5.4+ does not tolerate omitting the semicolon after continue.

And might be removed as it says on the reference http://php.net/releases/5_4_0.php

The second issue is as follow.

Warning: Illegal string offset 'order' in /path/wp-content/themes/wp-metric/admin/admin-interface.php on line 1155

Answer: the reason here is because you are trying to get an array key which does not exists on the wp_options from db and on php 5.4+ they are trying to deprecate loose key references, i.e., without quotes.

Fix:
#replace
$oldorder = $slide['order'];
#with
$oldorder = isset($slide['order']) ? $slide['order'] : '';

Now I think it works well with php5.4+ at least as far as I can see :).

Hi Zerge, Thanks for a great template!

I have a quick question regarding the page width that I hope you might be able to help me with.

When I load my website on an ios or mobile device, the home page (and only my home page) won’t show in edge-to-edge on the phone’s screen. It shows 90% of the width or so, leave a tiny and irritating gap to scroll across with. All other pages are fine (you see to each edge of the page when initially loaded).

My site is: www.bonproductions.com.au

Thanks a lot. I’d really appreciate any assistance. Again, great template! I’ve been using it for over a year now and plan to continue using it for a long time to come!!

Pete.

ZERGE

Hi Pete,

Right now I only see the message: We’re currently performing server maintenance and will be up and running again in a few minutes. :)

Default-user

Sorry Zerge. I must have left my “coming soon” plug-in enabled. Site is currently live. Sorry for the hassle.

ZERGE

Maybe it depends on scaling settings of your browser?

Default-user

Hi Zerge, sorry for the delay. I’ve had a look into it, and given that every other page works perfectly (AKA the full width of the page loads in Safari), it can’t be the browser’s scaling settings.

Any other ideas? Maybe there is something I can add to the header.php or style.css? :)

Thanks for the help too. Means a lot. Pete.

ZERGE

Hi,

Also, it maybe because Home have too small height?

Default-user

Wow, I didn’t think of that at all. I just added some more content to the page and it scaled perfectly.

Any idea if the width can somehow still be fixed without adding more content? Otherwise I can probably just live with that.

Thanks again, Zerge! Peter.

ZERGE

No ideas yet.

No worries. Thanks Zerge :)
