Hi Parallelus. purchased your seem because it looks great.

i have installed it, however i was going through the set up document and this bit never comes up

“2.At the top of the page you will be prompted to import a saved settings file. Click the link “View data for import”

and every time i click i change settings and hit save, non of my amendments save.

Can you help?

Thanks

Parallelus

If you use the import file you should import it first then make changes. It might be unclear in the help file and perhaps I should update the wording of that information. Try clicking “View data for import” then scroll to the bottom of the page and click the “Import” button. That should return you to the settings page where you can make changes to the data. Let me know if that doesn’t work.

sorry, what im i importing? ive installed the theme? now what? go to settings > theme settings OR tools > import :S

Thanks

Parallelus

The only place you will be notified of saved data is from “Settings > Theme Settings”. You will have a small message at the top of the page that alerts you of a saved settings file. You can import the default settings using this. There isn’t any need to choose to import as the theme will automatically recognize the presence of a saved settings file and prompt you to perform an import.

only message i have in settings > theme settings is ” Configure the options below to set the theme-specific functionality as needed for your site. “

print screen here ; http://d.pr/ImDl

Thanks

Parallelus

Ok, that’s good. You don’t need to do anything but update the settings as you desire. They should be saving and updating as you modify them. If not please let me know so I can investigate.

nothing :( ... if i click for example ” add new sidebar ” or ” add new header ” the page just refreshes and does nothing. and if i go in to contact form setup and save something in the subject field and click save settings, it refreshes but nothing saves.

:(

Thanks

Parallelus

Yes, that should not be happening. Can you email me login details so I can have a closer look?

Thanks.

Ok, I’ve determined the problem to be that you are running PHP 4 .4.2 on your server. That version is over 5 years old and the theme will not work properly on it. You should upgrade to PHP 5 .3.

Hi Parallelus, thanks for the fast work!...

Hello Parallelus,

You done great work on this one, I really like how you work on different HTML 5 style themes and custom contact forum with CAPTCHA . Over the top I have to bookmark this for now, but I will purchase later down the road.

I wish you the best on sales!

Parallelus

Thank you!

Hi Parallelus, theme is reductive, this is a framework. Only to know, before buy, there are a lot of shortcodes, there is a manager or a ready list where to find all of them? And you talk about Quick Skin, perhaps there is a demo of this?

Parallelus

Thanks for the compliments! The demo site has a full list of shortcodes and all parameters, right now that’s the best source but I’m working on additional integration of shortcode features into the theme that should be available soon.

The “QuickSkin” is a system of PSD and CSS elements that allows you to change as few settings as possible to create a completely new look. For example with the PSD file you only need to change 2 background colors to create a complete set of images for a new skin.

Holodigit

Thanks for quick answer. Tomorrow I’ll buy it. List of shortcodes it’s useful and go to demo site to find them it’s uncomfortable. May the upper WP contextual help could be a place to put them? Great work, I’m curious to see Quick Skin at work :)

Hi Parallelus,

Looking for a new theme/template for my photography site, I came across your template and thought it was great. So I purchased it right away.

I’m running a test install on my mac, installed Wordpress fine, the twentyten theme works, but when I install and activate Mingle and reload the home page, nothing shows. I can access the backend with no problems. I switched back to the twentyten theme and that shows content.

Do I have to configure everything in the backend before content shows, or am I missing something here? Cheers tdako

Thanks in advance for your help.
Parallelus

Thanks for the purchase. You should not need to configure anything. By default it should show the standard settings and theme options without any configurations. I have only tested it on a couple of hosts, however I can offer the following advice that might help.

1. Try going through the steps in the quick start section of the help document. This outlines a basic setup process that may fix your issue.

2. Open the file “framework\utilities\email-functions.php” and change line 138 from:

$headers = 'From: '.$name.' <'.$email.'>' . \\"r\n\\";

To:

$headers = 'From: '.$name.' <'.$email.'>' . "\\r\n\\";

I had a report of a localhost issue which this change fixed. I’ve already prepared an update for this but it won’t be available for a day or two.

Hopefully one of those will fix the problem. If not, let me know.

Thanks!

Thanks very much for your swift reply.

OK, so I go into framework/utilities to open up the file and I see that only the folder captcha is there. I compared this to the original and I can see that I’m missing some files. So it looks like the whole utilities folder did not upload and unzip properly.

I tried copying over the files and replacing them, but getting an error on the dingdong font, that it’s in use and cannot be copied.

I’ll try one by one and see if that works.

Thanks a lot tdako

Do you have an example of the code you used to recreate the default home page in your demo? Is there a demo content file to import?

Thanks

Parallelus

For the home page I’ve created a layout with 2 columns. In the left column I assigned a static page, “Home Page – Left”, and the right, “Home Page – Right”. I have the following code in each of those pages:

Home Page – Left

<h3>Powerful Features Behind the Design</h3>

[blog post_type="page" post_parent="16" posts_per_page="4" paging="no" image_width="128" image_height="120" excerpt_length="33" show_date=false author_link="no" comments_link=false]

Home Page – Right

<h3>Home Pages Created with Mingle</h3>

[portfolio post_type="page" post_parent="1321" columns="2" image_ratio="17:7" posts_per_page="6" content_width="478" link="post" paging="no"]

Hi Can you tell me whether the skins only apply to the home page? For example, skin 4 (the dark one); do all pages have the same dark background or do they revert to light? Is it possible to see an example of say the blog page with skin 4

Parallelus

Normally skins apply to the entire site. The theme demo takes advantage of a feature that allows you to set a single page or layout to a different skin. This is a nice feature because you could use it to color code areas of your website, for example a magazine site could assign a blue skin to the layout they use for the news area, purple for the entertainment, red for sports, etc…

I’ve created a sample page so you can see how a blog page might look with Skin 4: http://para.llel.us/themes/mingle-wp/blog/blog-skin-4/

Well, theme is really amazing. Is it easy translatable? Have it .po file? Can I use miltilangual plugins?

Parallelus

All text in the theme and admin areas use the proper language wrappers and I’m creating a translation (.po) file now. The PO file will be included in the first update but the theme should already work with translation plugins.

Hi Parallelus,

Another awesome theme! I think I own all of your themes! :)

I am working a site right now. But I have a quick question.

In the Skin 2 Sample, you have a few images (Create, Visualize, Innovate) with awesome backgrounds that would be perfect for the site that I am working on.

But I can’t find those images in the download.

Are those images somewhere that I am missing?

Or did you purchase them from a stock photo site? And if so, would you mind telling me where you go them?

Thanks very much!

Sam

Parallelus

I don’t own the rights to distribute the images in the demo site. If you send me an email I can give you a link to where I got the images.

I was extremely hesitant to purchase because it seems from the thread the kinks are still being worked out. Hopefully you can point me in the right direction to solve the issue.

Parallelus

I’ve done a LOT of testing and I’m fairly confident any kinks that may have existed have been worked out. The error you are seeing is because the image for the placeholders can’t be resized. There are several ways you can fix this.

Set the permissions on your “assets/images” folder to 755.

or

Turn off placeholder images: Theme Settings > Miscellaneous > Placeholder Images

or

Specify your own custom placeholder image: Theme Settings > Miscellaneous > Custom Placeholder Image

Any one of those 3 solutions should fix the problem.

I can confirm problem on localhost with mac work by change line 138 that Andy gave! Mingle al the way!

Thanks. Glad to know it worked. I’ve also already added this change into the theme files and the download file will be updated soon so that others don’t experience the same problem.

Hi,

I’ve installed your theme on a Live server and setting it up and I can’t seem to get the Portfolio to work very well. Maybe you could help me a bit here.

What I’m looking to achieve is this, Portfolio and then Sample 1.

What I’ve done is create two Posts in a category and they both show fine, but how do I show them as in the example? Do I use a Post or a Page with the code

[portfolio category="25" columns="3" content_width="990" image_ratio="3:2" title="true" excerpt="yes"]
?

When I do this, I get a thumbnail indeed, but underneath it there is no text. Each of the Posts has an image inserted in the post with some text underneath each image explaining where it was taken etc.

Thanks in advance for any help here. CHeers tdako

Parallelus

The shortcode can be inserted in a post or page. I tend to use pages to show lists of posts because it’s easier to manage the content but there isn’t any restriction.

From the shortcode you list above I don’t see a problem with the information entered. I may need to log into your site to look over the settings and see if there is a reason the titles are not showing.

Thanks again for the swift reply.

OK, I can create an account for you and mail it to you.

Cheers tdako

Parallelus

Looks like you found a typo in my shortcode document. Instead of title="true" it needed to be title="yes". I’ve updated the documentation and the demo site to reflect this information. You should be good to go now. Thanks again for purchasing the theme and best of luck with your new website.

Hi Parallelus,

Wow, what a stunning theme.. and what a perfect timing :)

I was just searching for a theme for my new Photo Portfolio site. 8-)

I really love the dark skinned version you showed here: http://para.llel.us/themes/mingle-wp/blog/blog-skin-4/

I guess it should not be a problem to have a jpg as background?

Thanks and cheers

Tom

Parallelus

It shouldn’t be a problem on the pages without the curve, like the dark blog page shown in your comment. The pages with a curve that fades into the page like the demo home page already have a background image used to create that effect so you would have more work to do to keep both effects, but still not a problem.

Wonderful theme, you are very talented. Quick question, does the theme support Tabs? You know the Tab shortcode a lot of other themes have whereby you have a line of text and you can click to expand more? they are great for FAQ ’s

Regards, Wayne.

Parallelus

There are not any expand/collapse or tab features yet but I’m working on adding them in the next update.
