Hi there, just bought the theme, but when I needed to adjust some things like the size of the logo or the margins I couldn´t. I already used other theme where I could edit the php files.

Can you guide me, so I can edit the php of your theme, thanks.

Hi

I would strongly suggest you to use the Child theme for this kind of changes, as you will lose changes on next Updates.

PS : The logo is on header.php just make sure you are using Binary mode transfer in case you are using a FTP Client

How do I do that? I have to install both themes? first one an then the other?

Thanks, for your quick reply.

I normally edit the php directly from the WP edit part, is that possible?

UmbrellaStudios

Yes you have to install Child and parent theme.

Hi again, I really don’t know how to edit this way, can you please help me in this case so I can learn how it works?

I need the logo to be as tall as the white bar of the menu, I have to edit the css in the modernist-child? What code?

Thanks again.

/* Theme Name: Modernist Child Theme URI: http://themeforest.net/user/UmbrellaStudios Description: A child theme of Modernist Theme Author: Umbrella Author URI: http://themeforest.net/user/UmbrellaStudios Version: 1.6 Template: Modernist */ @import url(”../modernist/style/style.css”);

.header .logo a img { max-height: 100px; elemento { margin-top: 0px; }

You need to activate Modernist-Child and edit on style.css the desired code.

Otherwise it is up to you to go further as we are not supporting customizations.

Is this the route to the css of modernist?

/* Theme Name: Modernist Child Template: Modernist */ @import url(”../modernist/style/global.css”);

UmbrellaStudios

Yes this is it.

Hi, in the theme Modernist, I need to translate some of the words like

view project filter works read full article architecture etc..

to Spanish. Where can I access all these words that are in the theme?

Thanks,

Jalucho

UmbrellaStudios

You can do that easily by editing the .po .mo files that are included on the “lang” directory of the theme.

Hi good morning, I am having problems when i see the template in my iPad. the white band of the menu and the footer doesn´t reach the right side of the web , it cuts at 70%.

Need help, how can adjust that? Thank you very much.

Ok, I will wait, another thing. I am using qtraslate in 4 languages, but it only aplies to the default text, I would like to use the dinamic layout but it wont translate the text with qTraslate. Is there any way to aply qTraslate to the dinamic layout texts?

Thank you for your quick response.

UmbrellaStudios

Well we did not tested with qTranslate, but we will test and modify to make it work with WPML.

Good morning here is Spain!!!

1) Why doesn´t the botton “back to projects” appear when I am inside a project page?

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Because you have not already created a Project page somehow you might be using a Dynamic Template.

And posts need to find first the URL where to go when back to projects is clicked.

Yes I am using the project template, but the buton is not appearing. You can see it here. http://www.gruassaez.com/saez/project_item/gruas-flat-top/?lang=en

Another thing, I would like to delete the butons of Facebook, twitter and pin it from the projects. How can I do that? tHank you again.

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

We fixed the back to services page.

Yes you can order the project just add the query arg to WP_Query object order and orderby you can learn more here http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query

To delete those edit single.php and single-projects.php, i think it would be easy to find their container and remove.

jalucho

Thank you, but can you give me a clue of which is the archive I have to edit and send me the lines of the 6 projects I will have to change. I really can´t find it. Thanks in advance.

I will tell you what I need. In the projects/products page, I need the 3 products of cranes to be the 3 first. Tower-flattop-Fasterecting up left. continued with the 2 of formwork’s and at the end down right the 3 of motion. Is that possible.?? Please!

Thank you again

UmbrellaStudios

On template-projects.php you can find an object WP_QUERY you can pass there order and orderby parameters which you can find on this page http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters

Hi after trying it 2 hours, I give up, I don´t understand how this code works, and I am sure you can help doing it in 60 seconds. Would you be so generous to give me the code to order the projects by the order of the page?? Please. Thank you, really need it now!! ;-) here the pice of the code:

div class=”project_holder widget_anim”> <?php $the_query = new WP_Query( array(“post_type”=>”project_post”,”posts_per_page”=>-1) ); while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post(); $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), ‘project_preview_big’ ); $image = $image0; $categories = wp_get_post_terms($post->ID,”projects_category”); $category = array(); if(count($categories)){ foreach($categories as $categ){ array_push($category,$categ->name); } $category = implode(”,”,$category); } else{ $category = ””; } $cats = array(); foreach($categories as $cat){ array_push($cats,$cat->term_id); } $cats = implode(”,”,$cats); ?>

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

We left the office on the mean time you requested that.

We need to repeat that fact the customization is not included on our part, but we will help you as much as we can.

In order to do that in the best way we need from you patient and clear requests.

So please tell us how you want to order Projects.By ID, By Date, By Title or By Number of Comments or maybe you need to order by newest or oldest.

You need to find out which attribute can order your project in the way you need them, so the analytic’s on this case are up to you.

jalucho
jalucho Purchased

Hi, thank you so much for your help. I need to order them in this way. First: the cranes products, In this order: tower cranes, flat top, self erecting. Second: the Formworks in this order: vertical, horizontal. Third: Motion. In this order: SZ255, SZ306, SZ4017.

So what kind of order do you think is the better?

jalucho
jalucho Purchased

My client is insisting that he doesn´t want the footer, can you please tell me where-how to eliminate it? Thanks again.

And another thing, my client wants the flags languages on the header, near the facebook , twitter icons, is that possible easily….???

Thank you for your patient… ;-)

UmbrellaStudios

You need to tell us the attribute that you need to order them we cannot find it by our self.

jalucho
jalucho Purchased

In the projects page. I have 8 products. And I need to control the order by type of product.

First: the cranes products, In this order: tower cranes, flat top, self erecting. Second: the Formworks in this order: vertical, horizontal. Third: Motion. In this order: SZ255, SZ306, SZ4017. So what kind of order do you think is the better?

Thanks

UmbrellaStudios

But the product type is not a WordPress default post attribute.You can add a custom field the product type and order by them but i think we are way to far out of our support scope.

Please understand that we are selling stock products not a Web Development Service.

jalucho
jalucho Purchased

Ok I understand, but now they are ordered by date? If so, I could redo the pages so the order in the way I need?

Can you tell me how to make disappear the footer?

Thank you very much.

UmbrellaStudios

as for the footer edit the html into footer.php and remove amy html there.

Problem solved – submenus are created under Appearance > menus

Also, your documentation looks like it needs some work. I’m a technical writer and I’d love to maybe collaborate on improving the instructions (after my site is built, of course).

Thanks and keep up the great work!

hi. your theme is good! However, I have a problem. When I open this theme on IE8, navigation background is not working. just menu on screen. What happen? I want to know what should I do for background. I look forward to your reply.

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Can you send us a URL to check this out please ?

Hi, URL is www.stelenc.com plz, check out.

UmbrellaStudios

It seems that you made css costumizations on theme that Internet Explorer doesn’t support.

The menu background is shown perfect in our demo. It seems to be the transparency that you have added, which is not in our demo.

I think it’s not a “must be” element, so to avoid problems with Internet Explorer I’d reccomend you to set back header like it was.

Thank you for understanding, Cheers

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Thanks for purchasing our theme.

First make sure you have created a Page with Template : Home

Than go to Metabox Background – Background Images.

And you can see a button “Add Row”, click it and make as many rows as you need for background images.

Than using “Add Image” button you can simply select the image you need to insert there.

Hi,i bought your template month ago, on the homepage i’m not able to make the services box linkable to their respective pages. I read here that i need to update with the latest version of Modernist template, buth in this case im not sure if i will lose all, styles and text that i had insert to my site, starting from zero?

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

We made that possible by clicking the desired service will bring you to service pages and it will slide up to that service.

But to update this we did changed lot of scripts and stuff.

You wont lose the data within the wordpress by updating the latest version but if you customized something you will lose them, and we cannot trace the changes you made there.

Default-user

so how do i get this update?

UmbrellaStudios

You need just to re-download the theme from your Downloads Section.

Hi

Can you confirm that you have Flashplayer installed and this is happening also on other Browsers.

Default-user

Flashplayer is installed, and it´s only the Firefox which doesn´t play …

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Well i found out that Firefox cannot render a flash video if it’s state is hidden.

And i saw that you already have customized the theme so i will tell you how to fix this manually.

Go to script single-project_post.php and replace every class widget_anim with widget_anim-disable.

With 90% of my project finished I have to say this theme is pretty poorly executed.

Responsiveness is a joke. You should remove that from the theme page.

I posted a bunch of questions in the support forum, I am very disappointed with the way this theme handles things.

UmbrellaStudios

Thank you for your opinion

UmbrellaStudios

I have replied to a comment of you on forum, i see that you are experiencing lot of troubles but the best way to solve them is to summarize them on one place.

Please consider that some problems might be from miss configuration or customization on code.

If you can provide a full list with all the problems you are experiencing and some tiny patience we will solve all those issues and i guarantee that to you.

Default-user

I had those listed in separate threads because I thought it would be convenient for your support team. I’ll look at it later and list a few things.

I did very little customisation and tested whether they caused some of the troubles I’m experiencing.

Your service is good, but I still have to be convinced this is a top notch theme. Responsiveness surely isn’t what I was expecting.

I’ll send you an e-mail.

UmbrellaStudios

Thanks a lot for your in-corporation.

Hi, i like your work. I’m thinking to buy it but i have a question about background images. I want to use multiple images in background and also animate them on all pages. Is your template support it or can i use some plugin like this (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/site-background-slider/) without any problems? Thanks.

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Modernist supports background slideshow only for homepage, but this plugins seems to do the trick, it might need only a single change to remove the static background at all or you can configure modernist to not display background images for other pages and use the plugin instead.

If you have skills on PHP CSS and JS than you can edit the theme, the code is not Obfuscated which means the code is readable.

Hi there! I silly question before buying the theme: Can I have multiple (different) project pages?

thanx!

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

If you are talking about the Project Page’s where project are listed there is a Layout Builder where you can chose between each frame you see on the web site to combine with each other.

But if you are talking about the Project Single page there is only that Layout that you can see on Demo, a Slider with the content on the Right.

brainbowtoy

Hi, thanx for the quick replay! I’m talking about the Project Page (http://modernist.umbrella.al/projects/) I want to make a website will several project pages (instead of one filtered). So I guess it’s feasible.

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

You can use Category Pages which are the same look as this page but you can chose which Category to show on the Menu and there you can show posts from that Category.
