Ok! I will give Fancybox 2.0 a shot and will let you know how it works out!

Quick question Alex. What is the best way to modify the text that goes into the Fancy box picture pages? I have filled out the text in the “title” section of each of the larger pictures that appear after you click on the thumbnail versions. The issue is that the text is obviously pretty generic and I would like to create a css class or something for the text that appears in the box of each picture.

I had a feeling that it was a CSS class but I wasn’t sure to where to place it or the syntax that I needed to use. The Fancybox site isn’t very helpful on this issue. There are demos but there are few direct explanations of the best way to attack this problem.

At any rate, I’m pretty much done with my modifications and I look forward to updating Fancy Box and changing the text so that I can launch the page! Again, this is one of the best templates out there and it’s really well documented and designed. Nice to see a template that follows best web design practices!

Cheers!

Hi Alex, everything working well apart from this one minor issue: the black background for the footer is in line with the text rather than (as in your demo) in line with the white background column running through the centre of the page. I havent changed the style.css page. Any ideas?

Thanks, Anna

Hi Anna,

Could you possibly send us a link to a live preview of your site so that we can figure out what issues are you experiencing? It’s probably something minor that happened during the editing of the HTML and not the CSS . Maybe a lacking class or a tag that’s not closed. A link would help a lot.

Hello Anna,

I took a look at your site and realized that while you edited the HTML of the template you have misplaced a lot of the DIVs that create the structure of your template. The “tree” is pretty much messed up. Please get in touch with us via the contact form on our site (http://qbkl.net) and we’ll answer back and help you sort it out.

[Important information]

The launch of jQuery 1.9.0 has created a big impact on quite a few of the most popular jQuery plugins around, mainly lightbox-type of plugins as some of the functions became deprecated without rollback support. In order to stabilize your website and still use your favorite plugins you’ll need to operate a minor change to your code and add an official migration script provided by jQuery. Here’s how to do it.

1. Go to <head> section of your file and find this line:

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

2. Just below this line add:

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-migrate-1.0.0.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

3. Reupload your file to the FTP and everything should be working properly with the latest jQuery release.

I am having a problem getting recent tweets to show.

I notice it is not working on your sample either. My site is http://www.jumiku.com/resume

The Twitter API has been changed and you should replace

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/jumapili.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=5"></script>

With:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=jumapili&callback=twitterCallback2&count=5"></script>

Will also update the files now to use this API call.

Hello,

Nice work !

Just a little question, have an idea how can I transform this webpage in PDF ?

Thanks a lot !!!

QBKL
QBKL Author

Hi there,

You can use a service like http://pdfmyurl.com/ to convert webpages to PDFs. This is a free tool, but it does leave a watermark with their URL on each page (does not interfere with the content). The watermark can be removed if you pay for the service (yearly fee of approx. 15 Euros or $19).

Kind regards,

Hi, Is it possible to change it so that a single column stretches the entire width of the space – as opposed to a third or two thirds width?

Thank you very much in advance.

QBKL
QBKL Author

Hi, yes it is possible. Instead of adding columnd divs inside the class=”section_content” div, you add your content in directly, and like that you don’t have any column separation, just full left to right content.

Hello, this is a great theme. Thanks a lot. Unfortunately I am unable to load tweets and I have updated with the latest code and included my twitter name too as below but it hasn’t worked. Is there something else I need to do?

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=Blogsessive&callback=twitterCallback2&count=5"></script>
<!- In the line above, replace "Blogsessive.json" with your own "username.json" to pull your latest personal tweets ->

Twitter has just released yet another version of the API, which as always rewrites code and renders old scripts useless. Thing is they now require authorization via any kind of server side scripting in order to retrieve something that’s already public (timelines). We’re working on finding a solution to overpass this restriction as we do not want to include server-side programming in the template, nor do we want to include their “timeline badge”.

We’ll keep you folks updated.

Hi Alex. I am playing around with the backgrounds and noticed that the gunpowder and paisley background patterns do not seem to repeat properly when viewed online, but when viewed locally they repeat properly. I have published the page to a Linux-based server. I tried a couple other backgrounds and the khaki works well.

Thoughts?

Hi there and thanks for the purchase!

I’m not sure what to say abouy the issue you experience. As stated in the documentation, the backgrounds used are third party and I have tested them out myself while developing the template and they behave properly, seamless that is. I know they should repeat properly so without seeing them in action, if you can provide a live link, and a screenshot of the error too, I don’t think I can help much since I and other users never experienced such issues before.

Kind regards, Alex / QBKL

Hi Alex! I love your design and am so excited to use it for my online resume. I am very new to ALL of this and have been using online links to get to this point… I have a WP account hosted by Bluehost. When I tried to install the theme I received an error message about a missing stylesheet. I found this link that explained it probably was an upload error and nothing wrong with the theme, but their instructions did not work for me…

http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/269

Will you please help me figure out how to install my theme on WP???

This is the message I am getting…

“Unpacking the package…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Hi Natasha,

The problem you are having is that you are trying to install it as a WordPress theme, when this templete is not a theme, it’s – as the title, section where it is located and description state – a HTML template. My advice would be to follow the documentation that describes what you need to do in order to set it up and put your own information inside and follow the sample file included and you should be wrapping it up in no time, with a bit of basic HTML knowledge and the documentation.

If you’re in need of further advice while trying to edit it, I’ll try to guide you as best as possible.

Hello,

I am trying it for the first time and after a few alterations my footer is not longer aligned as it should be. Here is my site :

http://www.ipp.mpg.de/~mela/

what did I do wrong ?

Thank you for your help

QBKL

Hello,

I took a look at your code and compared to the HTML file packed it is all messed up. There is a chance your editor somehow removed a lot of ending tags for the script inclusions in the head section. At least 3 of them are missing the ending tags and thus the whole head structure falls apart.

In regards to the footer, due to the improper editing (not properly following the DIV open/close structure), you basically moved sections 6 (portfolio) and footer inside section 5 (Education), and all of them together inside section 4 (Word Experience).

Also the editor you used kind of messed up the Google Map inclusion code adding a lot of unneeded HTML entities.

I would suggest getting a decent HTML editor and starting over with your documentation file close. The file is written in such way that all code elements shout have a tree-like TAB-based indent so you can easily follow which element opens and closes where. Try not to intersect items cause it will lead again to such a displacement.

Focus on editing the simple texts until you get a good grip of the file’s HTML structure.

Kind regards,

Alex.

PS: If you keep trying and you don’t manage, shoot us a message/email through the form on our profile and I’ll try to help you set it up.

OK, solved it. It was the line-heights for #nav,, which cut the dots.

QBKL

Hi there, oh, glad you figured it. We weren’t using any special characters at that time so we missed that. As you figured out, a line-height of 1.2em should be enough on those items to make the dots appears.

Hi,

In your downloaded examples, I have just noticed that the classes – “my_name”, “my_profession” and “section_title” ( possibly others too ) are supposed to be centered, but are around 7 pixels off to the right.

I have looked everywhere in the css but cannot find the cause.

Could you please look into this and possibly advise me how we get them to be centred correctly.

Thank you very much.

QBKL

Hello and thank you for the purchase! The issue you observe is not really an error but a default rendering of font properties by browsers. Texts are properly centered but as you can see, the spacing between letters is a bit increased through CSS letter-spacing. The extra spacing is added by default to the right of each letter which creates a bit of extra space at the end of each word. If this creates too much of a visual issue, you could fix it in the definition of those classes by adding a bit of left padding to emulate the extra right space (7px).

Regards, Alex

Hi Alex, I have edited this theme in dreamweaver and it all looks good. I was hoping to email this Resume as an HTML document, like I have with other HTML templates. Although, when I insert the HTML file the documents structure all breaks apart. Is it possible to email this template, or does it need to be a hosted webpage? Thanks Shane

QBKL

Hi Shane,

MinimalMe is a HTML template meant to be used as a website, self-hosted. It is not coded in an email format (tables), which is most likely why it breaks when trying to do so. It would be best if you host it somewhere and just link it in your emails.

Thank you for the purchase,

Alex
