Hi justin the slider won’t function properly. I just purchased this theme and it won’t function properly my site is www.MaximAlive.com please let me know what to do because the main reason I bought this set up was for the slider Thanks NASRIN

Siiimple

Hi Nasrin,

It could be a variety of common issues. I’m happy to have a look to asses the issue. Often times when this is a problem, the users host server has not set the cache folder for TimThumb to be writable. Simply set this folder, which is in the _scripts/cache directory to 777.

If that doesn’t solve it, please let me know.

Thanks Justin

Hi Sébastien,

No chance to have a PSD file ? I have buy this template for it. Best regards Sébastien

It says up there (on the right) “ThemeForest Files Included – Layered PSD ” so what do you mean, no PSD ?

Siiimple

Hey,

Sorry for the misunderstanding. That was an oversight on my part. The file does not contain a layered psd, and it was a mistake that it was shown that it did. If I can help out with any question or resolve any issues, please let me know – I’d be happy to help out.

Thanks Justin

I noticed that when viewing on an iPhone or iPad, this theme goes right against the left edge of the screen. I would like to show a 10 pixel left margin. I can’t find where in the CSS I would make this adjustment. I see references in some template files to a hardcoded “style” attribute setting the left margin to 0px. Is this what I would modify, or can I do it in the CSS ?

The Twitter lookup is nice, but I find that after a week, the last Twitter feed is emptied out, showing nothing at all. This can be a problem if you’re on vacation and don’t get a chance to update the feed.

How can I do one of the following (either one would be fine):

1. Stop displaying the entire gray twitter feed box in the theme if there is no content available to display, OR

2. Remove the limitation that restricts the amount of time for the feed to be called up

Siiimple

Hi Adwiz

The twitter script can easily be replaced. Probably the easiest option is to add Twitter Tools plugin, and replace the current script with their option. If you would like, I can do this for you. Just send me login details to justin@siiimple.com

The 10px left margin in iPad I have not looked at yet. Though it should be able to be fixed with a simple CSS adjustment. I will have a look at it.

Thanks! Justin

Hi Justin:

I’m looking for some clear, step-by-step instructions on how to set up a gallery in Miniml Press. The only screencast I can locate uses options under Appearance/menus that are greyed out in the control panel in my installation. Any advice would be appreciated, as this remains a major stumbling block to setting up my site properly.

Further on Adwiz’s query: I also posted a query about the lack of a left-hand margin on an iPad on your Siiimple forum on June 4 and have not received a reply.

thanks,

Darren

Siiimple

Hi Darren,

I thought I did respond. Sorry about that. The sidebar on the ipad is an issue I’m looking into at the moment.

If you could send me a temporary password/login to your site I can have a closer look. You can send it to justin@siiimple.com

Thanks! Justin

Hey Justin!

This looks awesome. Question though – does the “custom post options” allow for the placement of the homepage slider on individual pages?

I was hoping to put the image slide on top of some full width pages. Is it possible?

Thanks!

Matt

Hi Justin, thank you so much for great theme,

i have some questions for you; 1. Is it possible to have 2 colums of equal width with slider and without sidebar? like: http://cl.ly/13371h2k1u2M363l1m3q but 2 colums and rectangle images. 2. and maybe its easy but I don’t understand how to add images or videos into gallery. 3. is there an easy way to change fonts on Homepage to Calibri () instead of Helvetica () like footer or single post page. (not titles, just for articles). Titles are good in this way! Thank you and sorry for my bad english.

Siiimple

Hi,

These things are possible. Just send me some login information and the image dimensions you would like and I will see what I can do.

Thanks!

Justin

Hi Justin:

Thanks for the excellent and prompt support; it made a huge difference in terms of getting the theme set up quickly. My site is now running very smoothly, and it looks great.

Is there a way to set up multiple galleries in Miniml Press? If so, how do you specify which posts (pictures) appear in which galleries?

thanks,

Darren

Siiimple

Hi Darren,

There is a way to set up multiple galleries, though it requires some significant adjustments. How many did you want to have?

Thanks Justin

Thanks, Justin.

Setting up multiple galleries is not a major concern for me at the moment, but I realized when I tried that all images appeared in all galleries.

Rather than ask you to do any extra work now, I’d just like to suggest that multiple galleries would be a good option for a theme update at some point.

thanks,

Darren

Siiimple

Hi Darren,

I will certainly look to add this in the next update!

Thanks for your feedback.

Hello, congratulations, because while the template is very nice! I wanted to know if you can do so by default the slider is closed instead of open timthumb when you enter the site.

Thank you! Andy

Siiimple

Hi Andy,

I’m happy to help out. Just send a link to justin@siiimple.com and I’ll have a look!

Thanks! Justin

Hello Justin,

I was wondering if you got a solution already for the captions issue with the slider.

My site now is up and running http://www.feltcollective.com/ and although everything else works OK captions are still dead and I have to workaround by making everything in photoshop and posting caption-like images.

Thank you

Byron

Siiimple

Hi Byron,

I’m working on alternative option. Do you have a preference where you want the caption to be placed?

Thanks Justin

Default-user

Hi Justin,

Thank you for your fast replies.

I guess the bottom side would be the best place.

Thank you Byron

Siiimple

Hi Byron,

I got an update for you. Could you send me an email and I will send it on over :)

Thanks Justin

Hi there,

I’m trying to add some menu items but they won’t work. If I add one too many it will break down and it puts all my text into the menu.

Can you fix this?

Thanks in advance,

Kornelis

Siiimple

Hi Kornelisw,

Thanks for your purchase!

To fix this issue, go to Appearance > Menus, then in the top right corner pull down the Screen Options tab and select “Description”. Then in each menu item you can view the text that is showing in the menu area and delete it.

Let me know if that helps…

Thanks Justin

Hey Justin. Love the theme. I wanted to find out how to make two changes. 1. on the main index page – turn off the pretty photo light-box for the post thumbnail and instead have the thumbnail be included as part of the link to the post. 2. i want to get rid of the pretty photo “gallery option” when a image is popped-up. The little photos along the bottom of the active photos.

Thank you very much. Shaun

ShaunSpence
Thank you Justin. That is exactly what i wanted the thumbs to do on the homepage. The second thing was to disable the thumbnails that show up when a prettyphoto is open. I will make a screenshot of what im talking about here. http://shaunspence.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/screenshot.jpg Does that help?

Thanks, Shaun

Siiimple

Hi Shaun,

Yea, that helps. I’ll have a look.

Thanks! Justin

ShaunSpence

Thank you so much for the fix. You Are Awesome!

Hi Justin,

Thanks for a great theme, its just what I was looking for. I’m completely new to this stuff so my questions may have obvious answers.

The 1st is the slider, I see someone else has queried at and your reply was:

the users host server has not set the cache folder for TimThumb to be writable. Simply set this folder, which is in the _scripts/cache directory to 777.

What the hell does that mean!? And how can I do the change?

Also the twitter feed at the bottom how do I get rid of it? I like the dotted frame but I don’t use twitter so I’d like to remove the text. I’ve deleted the twitter details in the social media tab but it still appears and when I check back at the social media tab the details are back.

Any help with this would be awesome, I’ve mailed you my username and password lyn

Siiimple

Hi Lyn

Could you resend me your login details. For some reason I must have missed them.

The cache can be changed by going to your theme files, find the folder _scripts then there will be a folder called cache. Press command + i and you can set your permissions by changing the numbers to 777. If that doesn’t make sense you can send me your ftp details for your server and I will change them for you. If that doesn’t make sense you can contact your host server and they can do it for you. Most servers don’t require this, so it’s relatively rare.

Hope that makes sense :)

Thanks! Justin

If this theme doesn’t work on WordpressMU it’s probably because the version of timthumb.php he’s using doesn’t look for images in the newer blogs.dir directory.

I’ve sent this developer a note with a fix.

In the mean time you can read this to fix it manually yourself:

The description of your template implies a full width page template:

Full Width custom page template – so your image fills the screen

But the only page templates I see are Default, Full Background, Gallery and Main Alternate. I would like a full width page template that does not include the sidebar for certain pages. Is this available?

Thanks, Jim

Siiimple

Hi Jim,

The full background option, currently, is the only template available, but I’m happy to help out if there is something specific you have in mind. Just let me know.

Thanks Justin

Hi Justin

I’m having the same problem with featured images not appearing in the slider. The site, more or less right out of the box, is here:

http://www.thepreraphaeliteexperiment.org/

I’ve set the scripts/cache folder to 777, what else should I try?

Thanks, Martin

Siiimple

Hi Martin,

Could you send me a temporary password/login? I’ll have a quick look.

Thanks! Justin

Hey Justin I sent you an email with a temporary password/login. The username was justin. I’m having the same slider problems as other people.

I forgot to ask if you could include the caption option as another asked above, that would be great.

Default-user

Actually I got the slider working on my own. I wanted to ask you what are the available slider speeds? Is it 1 – 10? And is there a way to add links to the images? If I can get an alternative email from you I’ll just discuss it there.

Thanks again.

Siiimple

Also, try setting the speed to 5000. Or whatever speed you would prefer.

Thanks Justin

Hi Justin:

I’ve been living with Miniml Press for about a month now and really love it.

One note for future updates to the theme: the links on the main page have a different appearance than they do in pages and posts.

On the main page, links are blue when they’re fresh and purple when they’ve been visited. In posts and pages, they’re always underlined. This is a little confusing; perhaps the link style should be consistent across the site.

If an update isn’t in the works, I’ll probably change the links myself for consistency, but if you’re working on one, I’ll wait.

cheers,

Darren

Siiimple

Hi Darren,

Thanks for the input. I’ll have a look at it right away.

Thanks Justin
