Hi DJwd,

Awesome job done! I am in love with classic Blog Post Layout.

Now, I will download the latest version and start implemented new Minimosity. I just want to confirm few things about new version.

1. As mentioned @erap that you would consider sidebar 300px wide issue. Because I have read in Google Adsense policies they don’t allow their ads to fit in any other size rather than actual. I know, you might be aware that DoubleClick works in best pixel implementation.

2. Have you fixed the content display on index page without adding <-more-> tag manually? (i.e. post exerpt)

Hi techsnapr,
Thank you glad you like it.

Regarding your questions:

1. I ‘ve been considering adding that as an option as said, though I realized this needs too much tweaking (especially with tablet version) and I couldn’t bundle it in this update, so I decided to might keep it for further updates.

2. Yes, Front Page Posts option was added in the Homepage Tab. Now you can choose whether to use the more tag or automatic posts trimming. Hope that works for you.

Cheers
djwd

Okay! DJwd,

I will give it a try. Can you send me those files (updated with 300px wide sidebar) or complete Minimosity Zip separately via email.

Because I can’t wait to place ads in the sidebar till next update.

Thanks,

djwd

If that was done I would have already made it available techsnapr. As I said I’ll consider to do that in the future, basically If I receive more requests about this topic. For personal customization you know already where to contact me.

Thank you,
djwd

Pre-buying question: What formats of ads are you able to place on the template?

djwd
djwd Author

Hi JeKan, Thank you for your interest in Minimosity.

Sidebar is optimized to handle a double 125×125px, but you can place any size up to 280px width.

On the top you can place a 468×60 banner, or a 728×90 banner, in this case your logo doesn’t have to be too wide of course or it won’t fit.

An update is coming to handle also ads in the main content (you can already place them through the ads widget actually, but they won’t look that good)

Cheers, djwd

Hello djwd,

Firstly great job with your theme ^^

However i have 3 questions about it: 1. How can i add the home button (i don’t see the option in the theme options) 2. This is normal that dropcaps aren’t visible on the posts in the home page? (but it works on the post page) 3. The classic blog layout doesn’t seems to work while i have updated the theme (i wanted to test the option).

You can see the first two points on my blog: www.anthodev.fr

Thanks and again nice work on your theme!

Hi anthodev,
thank you so for your compliments and purchase!

About your questions:

1. You can have the Home icon by adding the class home to the menu item. If you can’t see the CSS Classes field, select Screen Option on the top right, and activate the CSS Classes checkbox.

2. That is normal if you select the Auto Trim option, autotrimming cannot output shortcodes in the excerpts (I’m working on a solution on this tho). If you use the <-more-> tag or the Post Excerpt field when writing a post this doesn’t happen.

3. Can you please be more specific on that? You can e-mail me with your wordpress admin login if you want so I can have a look.

Thank you,
djwd

Thank you for your answers. So to answer you:

1. It’s all good now

2. I don’t use the Auto Trim option (or the <more> tags), so it should be another issue which cause this. The full post is visible on the main page.

3. Nevermind, it was my fault, i believed that’s worked on the main page too. (it could be cool to deativate the featured slider of the main page).

Do you still need an access to my blog?

Keep up the good work, Anthodev

djwd Author

Hi antodev, you’re welcome.

You’re right, I just saw you’re displaying the full posts on the home page, and they seem ok to me. Are you referring to the featured posts excerpts (the one’s in the slider)? To fix that I suggest to use the post excerpt field when writing a post that is supposed to be a featured one. If you can’t see that field click on Screen Option on the top right of the post page, and activate the Excerpt checkbox. Let me know if this solution work for you.

Thank you,
djwd

Wow! I was just about purchasing “Good News” theme after almost 2 months of looking for the best magazine wp theme. And than I ran into yours and it looks amazing!

I do have some questions though:

[1] Do you have an RTL version of this theme? [2] Is it possible to add a 3rd sidebar for ads and so? [3] Does this theme has .mo and .po files which I can translate? [4] Is it possible to display jqueryt-tabbed-excerpts (Like in Good News at the bottom: http://themeforest.net/item/goodnews-premium-wordpress-newsmagazine/full_screen_preview/1150692 [5] Is it possible to make the image slider to be in content width and not full? [6] Can the review ticker be a latest posts ticker?

Thanks :) Oren

Hi orenlebbo,
Thank you very much for the compliment I’m flattered. :smug:

About your questions:

1. Not for now unfortunately, but I’ll probably add this in the near future
2. No that is not possible at the moment.
3. Yes it does.
4. Not really, you can achieve that with plug-ins though.
5. It is not possible by default, but this is also in plans.
6. It can with a small tweaking (I can do it for you)

Thank your for your interest and for the suggestions you gave me with your questions! ;)

Thanks,

I have about 2 more weeks before I have to choose the right theme.

At the moment i’m considering between: “GoodNews”, “Megazine”, “Minimosity”, “Max Mag” and “MikMag”.

If you’ll manage to add some of these tweaks, please let me know.

Thanks ! :)

on the top left, there is a list of the items that are on my menu. They don’t look like they’re supposed to be there and I would like to get rid of them. it starts in the top bar where the search bar is also located. How can I get rid of this? thanks. http://properfrattire.com

I am new to Wordpress and when attempting to change standard theme to Minimosity theme I keep getting this error message: The package could not be installed. PCLZIP _ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

Hi luxlady,
Thank you for your purchase.

You’re probably trying to install the full zip file you downloaded from your dashboard. You need to unzip it and upload on your server only the content of the Upload folder.

Hope this helps,
djwd

I am deeply in love with this theme. However i have one question is there any demo content following? I am not thinking about a xml or sql dump but a whole upload folder so i am able to get it exactly as the DEMO page witch pictures etc..

djwd
djwd Author

Hi zeec, things you won’t get are widgets settings and need to change 3/4 options easily throught the Admin panel, that’s it. I’m sorry but I don’t know any other way apart the xml file (I don’t think there is actually).

Cheers,
djwd

But all these settings are in the manual right? If so ill buy it on tuesday since its payday thanks a lot!

djwd
djwd Author

Yes settings are mostly explained in help file, anyway most of them are really straight forward (e.g. display reviews ticker yes/no, display newsletter yes/no, upload background…and so on).
If you’ll have any problem I’m here to help though.

Have a good day,
djwd

thank you djwd,

how exactly do i download the updates for the theme?

djwd
djwd Author

Hi properfattire,

Simply download the item again through your dashboard in the downloads page and overwrite the theme files on your server

Cheers,
djwd

Ok, my options are shrinking and the options are either Minimosity or Good-News.

I like Minimosity more design-wise but Good News has some features that I want/need like:

[1] Content width’ slider. [2] Tabbed box with thumbs and excerpts from different categories. [3] RTL structure. [4] Latest-Posts ticker. [5] Sticky horizontal menu (Which will display when scrolling down). [6] Way to easily add Ads between boxes in home page or generally on site.

Please tell me if you can do this things soon. If you do i’ll go for Minimosity. If not – for Good News.

Thanks again and sorry for so many questions :) Oren

orenlebbo

[5] Maybe you can make the whole header to be full width. I think it would be nice to have this option and then you can add the “sticky” menu too…

  • If I might add – I think the fields in Contact Form are not well sized. The Name field is very big but the email and website are too short…

Thanks for your patience :)

I’ll wait for the RTL and once updated i’ll purchase the theme. Is there a way to subscribe to updates’ notifications?

Check out the latest updates in the live demo..! Thanks for your suggestions.

Hi Djwd,

I want to know if Minimosity comes with child theme. Actually, I have customized Minimosity (directly the parent theme) according to my needs as now if you’ll roll-out further updates I am unable to update the theme, because all the changes I made will be overwrite. How can come up over this limitation.

Next thing is, when I insert gallery in my posts, I am unable to set gallery columns. I mean if I set gallery to be displyed in 2 or 3 columns, it is appearing in 5 columns. Look like 5 columns is default value and cant be change?

Thanks,

djwd
djwd Author

Hi techsnapr, Minimosity comes with what is advertised on the item details. CSS and Javascript customization should be done using the textareas in the Advanced tab of the options panel.

Yes galleries are forced to 5 thumbs per row to keep the layout grid consistency.

Cheers
djwd

Okay DJwd,

I am already aware about the Advanced tab of the options panel. I can do only CSS and JavaScript customization there, but I need to change some theme templates files too. Thus, I need the solution like child theme.

Can you please provide me the dummy structure for Child Theme style.css file.

Thanks,

djwd
djwd Author

If you need to edit php templates and functions other than css and js then you need to create a child theme as you already know, sorry I didn’t understand your last question though. Minimosity code is well commented so there shouldn’t be major problems if you know what you’re doing. Nevertheless what I suggest is to upload only updated files (always mentioned in changelogs), and comment out your changes in case they’re affected.

@DJwd,

You have used as many .css files for ease rather than single stylesheet. but My question was that as I would @import Minimosity style.css file in child theme style.css

So, I am confused that do I need to import all other .css file like (layout.css sidebar-content.css) in the style.css of child theme or just only style.css of minimosity only.

i.e.

/* Theme Name: Minimosity Child Theme URI : http://example.com/ Description: Child theme for the Minimosity theme Author: DJWD Author URI : http://example.com/about/ Template: minimosity Version: 0.1.0 */

@import url(”../minimosity/style.css”); @import url(”../minimosity/layout.css”); @import url(”../minimosity/responsive.css”);

Is it correct way to render files?

Hi there, you could probably remove that without much trouble working on the css, but I can’t really help with free customizations, I can only help with theme issues or bugs.

So after asking for so much help I had to write this for everyone to see how it works.

djwd is amazing! So helpful! I can definitely recoomend this theme and the support is 10/10!

Hi djwd Apologies if this has already been answered/asked by someone else, but is it possible to show video within the home page main slider area?

Also, can I change the font size of the menu on smartphone view – it’s just a tiny bit on the small side.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi MattBaker,
Check the answer right before yours! ;)

To set the mobile menu font size specifically go to Theme Options > Advanced > Custom CSS and paste this:

.main-small-navigation {
    font-size: 3.6rem;
}

If that’s not enough replace the number 3.6 with higher values

djwd
djwd Author

To affect only mobiles (and not window browser resizing place this instead:

@media screen 
and (max-device-width: 640px) {
.main-small-navigation {font-size: 3.6rem;}
}

Hi ,

I’m sorry I just have several questions :

1. My lastest reviews tickers in the menu doesn’t work on me homepage while it works on other pages … do you have a clue ?

2. How could I get the sticky menu like in your demo ?

3. Does your theme allows translating plugins ? If yes which one would be the best ?

Thanks a lot for you work ! See you !

djwd
djwd Author

Hi niiko51, Thank you for your purchase.

1. Not really, private message me with your wordpress info so I can have a look please.

2. That is one of the new features that will be available in the next update scheduled for tomorrow. (check at the very bottom of the item description for details)

3. Yes Minimosity is localization ready. For automatic translations, I know there are many plugins that handle that but since I’ve never used any I can’t really suggest you a reliable one. My advice is to manually translate the included .po .mo files using poEdit. (French and Italian translations are included already)

Hi, at first I apologize, I’m a bit noob on this, very noob in fact, and my english is not very good.

I have some troubles:

1. No paragraphs are set on my posts.

2. The upper last review has a problem, the first review disappear too fast and it’s impossible to see it properly.

3. I don’t know how to make that the post show only a header and not the entire text, I don’t know if this is your bussiness or I have to ask someone else.

4. Some images don’t charge and images are not higher than 8 MB, when upload ends the image appears broken and I don’t know why.

5. I want to put one category on the menu with Gravatars, showing who we are and a little description of us. Would be possible?

6. And in addition, I would like to ask you how I can put the reviews in a common category, I mean, If my site has Music, Books, Games, etc, I want one LP review on Music, without distinctions.

Hope I’m not being ridiculous, I come from Blogger, everyone starts once. Congrats for your beautiful theme :)

Hi AdrianoFor
Thank you for your purchase and compliments :)

Don’t apologize, let’s see your questions:

1. Many people complain when I add spacing between paragraphs. Go to Theme Options > Advanced > Custom CSS and paste this:
article p {margin-bottom: 22px}

2. Good catch. Fixed in the upcoming release (v1.2)

3. Go to Theme Options > Homepage > Front Page Posts and choose More tag if you plan to use wordpress <-more-> tag when writing a post or select Auto Trim if you want post excerpts to be automatically trimmed.

4. This is unlikely theme related, but if you message me through my profile page with your wordpress admin info I can have a look.

5. If I well understood it’s enough for you to create a new page with the info you want, then adding it to a menu through Appereance -> Menus

6. Go to Reviews > Categories and create your category. When writing a post simply select the single category you created in the metabox on the right.

Hello,

Just purchased a few days ago and it’s a very nice theme! Could you please let me know the picture size for featured images for the big slider and the for posts? Thanks

djwd
djwd Author

Hi blackbeautyfanatic,
Thank you for your purchase, glad you like it.

Optimal minimum size for the Big Slider and Big Featured Images is 994×350px. Although bigger images get automatically cropped to correctly fit the slider.

Cheers,
djwd

Perfect!

Two more suggestions:

[1] I would make the Comment Form’s fields a bit wider.

[2] I would add thumbnails and navigation arrows to the main homepage slider.

:)

orenlebbo

Oh.. So I guess it’s a matter of location. Thanks man. Surely goes for Minimosity now :)

orenlebbo

Hi,

[1] Maybe you can estimate when will the RTL version be ready?

[2] Can you add (Even if only for me and for payment) this kind of feature which let users navigate between posts with a left and right buttons which are attached to the side of the screen like in this website: http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/10/21/14587726-feds-not-changing-marijuana-policy-even-if-3-states-legalize-it-us-official-says?

Thanks :)

Hi again orenlebbo,

1. I’m flattered you really like Minimosity to wait for some features :), unfortunately I didn’t have any other request for RTL version apart from yours, so I’m sure you understand it cannot be a high priority at the moment. Please don’t hate me I already added some features only on your ‘requests/suggestions’ and you’re not even a customer yet :). An rtl.css file it’s included in the theme though, with instructions on how to do it, if you’re in hurry and you (or somebody of your team) know a bit of CSS , it won’t be hard to achieve.

2. Pretty nice feature. I’ll look into this, btw for personal customizations contact me in private through my profile page.

Thank you,
djwd
