I purchased this item but I cannot get it setup with Godaddy. Every time, I try to upload the zip file it fails.

kluska

It’s becouse zip file has 8000+ files inside mostly becouse of packed-in icons and server-side unpacking takes a longer while. If your server has shorter MAX_EXECUTION_TIME of single script, uploading will fail. In this case you’ll need to upload theme manually by FTP http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes#Adding_New_Themes

[edit]

It’s exacly what is Foxdonut saying

@ Garythewebguy. I had the same issue – simply copy the files manually via FTP to a new folder named metro in the them e directory and it’ll work fine.

hi i purchase the theme on friday 19 of april – after Installation the version in the “about theme” shows vs. 1.01. how can i receave the updates? i have a problem with the posibility – “Enable homepage tile of every page/post” its not turning ON

kluska

I havent update the numeber of version inside theme, your version is actual. about this option – I’ve just checked it and it works. To be sure – what this option does is to check every post and page of your wordpress and turn its ‘homepage tile’ option to ‘on’.

is there a way to create tiles in pages – or its possible with aditional code only

kluska

Check shortcodes list. [tile] shortcode creates single tile.

Hey there, Kluska!
First of all, great theme! I love it!

Let me hit you with a question, tho. My site is in Brazilian Portuguese, and this language uses a few accents. Stuff like acute: [á], grave accent: [à], tilde: [ã], circumflex: [â], cedilla: [ç].
But the default font doesn’t seem to support those.
The accented letters look boldish in the regular paragraph text, and they seem to be a different font (very heavy) altogether on headers.
What can I do about this? Is there any way to make this font support those accents? It looks so good, it would be a shame to have to change fonts. But if I need to change it, how would I go about that?

Thanks again for the great theme, and thanks for your help!

kluska

M+1 font, that I’ve used does not support those chars. It would be the best to use oryginal Windows font – segoe UI, but there is no licence for this.

Anyway – lately, I’ve found awesome font that can be used and is the same quality or even better.

http://www.dafont.com/weblysleek-ui.font

And as I see, it does support your charset. To use font you need to make it @font-face and change chapter 5 of style.css of theme. If you’re not familiar with this, mail me for details.

Is there a built in feature in theme config panel to change theme colors as its all in orange , i’d like to set it up in different color scheme.

Yes, you can change every color of theme inside admin panel, check video of theme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxvYxxWjRWo – 4:50

i have a few quastions?: 1. when download bar in chrome is open the site becoms vertical – https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/67891967/bug1.PNG when i close the download bar the site looks like this https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/67891967/bug2.PNG

2. how to add widgets as tiles – for example newsletter subscription

3. how to change social media buttons links in the share menu

kluska

Can you mail me with live version of your website so I can see what is happening

2,3 depends for now on your developing skills, I’ll implement social buttons settings, for now they are coded inside footer.php file, about Tile widgets, there is no such option now, you can create custom tile type: _/php/display-tiles.php is where tile types are defined. If you need any help feel free to mail me, but for now its the way you can do it.

ok thx, one more question – how in a tile type can i insert an image via url using shortcodes. the tyle is in a subpage

kluska

If you mean tile background image, you need to set “type” to 2 for example and set some “bgimage1” url value. [tile type=”2” bgimage1=”url” SOME_OTHER_VALUES]

we tried this type of code it does’t work. i’ve sent you a privet message with the code we used please see it! thnx

kluska

I’ve inspected it and it was some issues of this shortcode. New update is uploading now and waiting for acceptation. There is also new value of tile shortcode – ‘istransparent’ – set it to false to disable colored label

Hi Kluska,

I have a question about the back button functionality from a Portfolio item.

In the theme demo for instance, when I go:

Home Page -> Portfolio -> Raindrops

and then click ‘Back’ it takes me to the blog index page, not the Portfolio page.

See it in action in this screencast:

http://screencast.com/t/Q2M578uv13I0

I’m developing a site with multiple portfolio pages, each showing a different category (followed the documentation to figure out how to do this), but when I click ‘back’ on a portfolio detail page, they all take me back to the home page, instead of back one level.

Any ideas?

kluska

I’ve inspected it and its a bug. I’ll try to fix it with next update. Thanks for info.

Having trouble making multiple category pages.

We want to use one set of categories and subcategories on a page called gaming.

Then a second category and subcategory pages for videos.

It seems all the categories are pulled into the blog template.

Is there a way to define specific categorys of posts per page?

kluska

You need to write comma separated categories slug-names inside page that use blog template. Then on single posts you’ll need to set parent of post so If user clicks back button he will go back to its parent page.

Response to the last Post.

We are trying to use the blog template for multiple sections

Example: Gaming, Videos, Podcasts, News

Gaming should only show options for the gaming post categories and any sub categories.

How can we achieve this structure with your template?

I was looking at altering the Blog Template php to assign a specific category and all the child items.

Please Help!

kluska

You need to write comma separated categories slug-names inside page that use blog template. Then on single posts you’ll need to set parent of post so If user clicks back button he will go back to its parent page.

Default-user

Do i put it into the body of the page in editor? Can you give me an example.

{gaming}, {sub category}

?

kluska

for example if you create category ‘My sweet kitteh’ – and you go to category edition page, you’ll see its name and it’s slug name (slug name would be without spaces like : “my-sweet-kitteh”.

And yes, you need to write this slug-names as page body text.

Default-user

Will it pull all the subcategory without listing them? I added this to the body text {gaming}

All posts and categories still show.

See here http://gamingsincegaming.com/gaming/
kluska

Are you using {gaming} or gaming as content. Use only names, no special chars like {}

Default-user

Gaming page i would like the post category Gaming id=’67’ content to show only.

Also the drop down for categories shows all categories. I would like it to only show the sub categories of the parent Gaming.

So far all my attempts to pull category post content into separate pages with the blog template has been unsuccessful.

I had someone look at the php he said it is pulling all categories in the loop.

We love your template but this is crucial for us to have separate post content for each official page.

Please help

kluska

Please mail me, I will show you exacly with screenshots how to do it. If you want to check php, you’ll see that inside blogpage.php template wp checks if your page has some content and treats it as $cat. Then you can see inside query_pages.php that if there is some $cat, it adds it to query and loop only posts of that category.

About dropdown, thanks for notice, I’ll fix it as it indeed shows all categories now.

Default-user

Sorry for the impatience. Really need to get this done, as it has us at a stand still trying to work on our website. I emailed you earlier. Please sent the screenshots as soon as you can. I definitely want to use this great theme but in order to do so this has to be figured out! Thanks again!

kluska

Replied you with screenshots guide how to. Hope it helps.

Hi kluska, first of all: thank you for this great theme! We need to use the MailUp plugin for subscriptions to our newsletter, but to do so we have to insert a widget. How can we do?

kluska

I dont know how much are you familiar with php. The best would be to copy snppet of code of widget and paste it as tile on homepage section.

Native tiles widgets will be implemented but for now they’re not.

Hi,

Is there a way to add new icons by only making modifications via a Child Theme, and not editing the parent theme ‘admin/icon-list.php’ as described below?

I can definitely follow the directions below, but I’d prefer not to edit the parent theme directly, because I’m afraid I might lose might icons during a theme update.

I tried using require_once from my child theme functions.php to import the file and changing icon path references to ‘get_bloginfo(‘stylesheet_directory’)’.

I also tried overriding the ‘custom_display_mc_page_meta_box’ function.

But since this theme isn’t really setup to work with a child theme, I ran into a lot of problems.

Is there something simple I’m missing?

Thanks!

Ok, so: each icon is stored like this: includes/metroicons/color(black/white)/size(128/48/32)/icon_name_(color)_(size).png

Each of icons is added in 3 sizes and 2 colors (6 files per icon).

To add icon to list of icons inside admin panel, edit admin/icon-list.php

All rest of job is done automatically – theme chooses right icon sizes and colors for situation etc.

kluska

Yes, if you upload new icon like this, all the job is done auto.

In my opinion you can just change icon-list file and dont re-upload it during updates of theme or make some copy of this file in case you would re-upload it. Anyway, icon-list file is used only to SHOW icons inside admin panel, it does not have any functional purposes.

You can also create another file like icon-list2 and inside /admin/page-custom and admin/post-custom after including icon-list file add line to include icon-list2 too.

kluska

Also what I would recommend you is to check get_icon_url() function inside _/php/get-icons.php

You can add some custom attribute for different icon from child theme or what you need. Anyway, all icons url are generated by this function.

Default-user

I’ll try over-riding the get_icon_url function and see what I can do, or try making a second icon-list2 file so that it’s not over-written on theme updates.

kluska

The third option is to just upload your new icons following naming rules and when you edit post, you can just write name of your icon.

Correct Use of progressbar shortcode.

The shortcode does not show the % amount is only shows 0%

this is the same as your demo page as well.

Please tell me how to fix

kluska

Ok I havent noticed it. I will inspect it and fix with next update. Thanks for notice.

Please demonstrate the correct syntax for the contact form with an example because I cannot get any email to send as it says it is sent but never received.

kluska

When you use plain shortcode without any custom values it will send email to default email that you’ve entered when you was creating your wordpress installation. (Default admin email).

Other reason may be that PHP MAIL function is disabled on your server so its not possible to send email. About info with that you need to contact your hosting deliver.

Hi Kluska.

First: great theme, I am really loving it.

Second: I am having problens to create graphics, I tried everything but there is no way I can get to work. I do not know if there is a problem between the theme and the version of wordpress I am using (i tried the latest and the version before, for the record), or a problem in the shortcode itself. Can you help me?

(By the way, I am from Brazil so pardon me if there is any mistakes in my english xD)

kluska

Hi. You mean charts?

If so, please mail me with your shortcode and description about what you’re going to achieve.

I think your english is ok ;)

Hi again.

Yes, I mean charts. The thing is, I am not trying anything specific right now, I just wanna know how it works so I can play with It later xD.

I was thinking, could you send me one example (maybe more) of charts shortecodes already made so I can analyse and understand what I am doing wrong?

Thanks Kluska.

kluska

Try with example .xml data, import it to your theme and there is one page ‘Charts’ that shows way of working of all of them.

Hi Kluska.

First: thanks, the charts are working now, your tip solve the problem.

Second: I have another doubt. I am trying to put a background image (with the recommended resolution of 2560×1200), but it is not workng. Everytime I try it says the image is too small. What can I do?

kluska

Hmm I’ve set it to be bigger, not equall. I will fix it. So you need to upload a little (at least 1px) bigger images.

Hi, just bought the theme and am having problems with the featured images showing up for page tiles.

For the 2nd tile style, if I add 1 featured image, nothing appears. If I add 2 images, it cycles between #2 and a blank tile. If I add 3 images, it cycles between #2, #3 and a blank tile. It’s as if it’s using using 1 instead of 0 for the starting index or something.

Also, for the 6th tile style the featured image does not show up either.

kluska

I’ve fixed it. Wil be added with next update, thanks for info.

I’d also like to know how to have a tile on the homepage that takes me to a category page containing the tiles for all of the pages in that category?

kluska

According to documentation create page including only some category (write category name slug as content) and thats it. If you’ll have some question about it, mail me (profile page)

Default-user

I will mail you to explain further. I can get it to work as you say with ‘posts’ but not ‘pages’.

kluska

Its updated now, there is new template for pages for exacly that.

Couple of bugs with the theme – 1. When using the 2nd tile slide, the featured image doesn’t show (and is blank) 2. When using tabs shortcode, if the tab name is more than one word then it doesn’t function properly, It intially renders fine, you click on a couple of tabs, then back to the one with more than one word and the contents are blank 3.

kluska

1.st one is alredy fixed, I’m finishing some other issues and there will be big update today or tommorow. 2. I’ve noticed that too and will inspect this.

Default-user

Glad to hear it..

3. If you use the Accordion tabs, the first one is always open (should have an option to have this closed). If there are more than 3 accordion tabs e.g. 5-6 then it doesn’t work properly, it gets split into two, so you end up with two open accordion tabs.

Default-user

4. If you use an image to replace the logo, the secondary text that appears next to the image is aligned at the bottom. Looks odd – how can I change the alignement to the vertical middle?

kluska

Its thought to be aligned bottom. I will think about adding such option. If you need fast solution you can add logo with some blank space on the bottom.

Default-user

Thanks for the tip – I will do, till you update the theme.

Another little bug, if you are using an unordered bullet list, with two levels when it wraps onto the next column it gets a double bullet. I’ll upload a pic and send you the link tomorrow.. minor bug, but a bit annoying.
