Hi. Congratulation on creating the most beautiful theme ever.

Please help with an issue I am facing. I am not able to change the typography in the theme options. No matter what font size I select, it doesn’t change on the website.

It was working fine a day before, but today when I tried to make the font a bit smaller, it is not happening.

Hey again,

I responded to your ticket on the support site about this, have you see it?

Cubell

Great! Thanks. I have closed it.

No problem :)

Hey Cubell,

The COOLEST theme ever. This is the slickness I was looking for!

So I don’t really fancy changing much from the preview you offered before buying, is there anyway I can use your exact demo and then change it from there?

Makes it a hell of a lot easier + keeps the premium look safe.

Thanks!

Hey Socceriraq,

Thanks so much for the kind words and for choosing Ness :)

Really happy that other answers helped you too! :)

I’m still looking to find out how my home page front slider can be a slideshow but not of posts, justs pictures. So I can add my name of the site in the title. Similar to http://luxtonclinic.com.au/ – please reply asap mate!

Hey again,

I did reply to your other comment, but just to expand on it, that site is not using the slider, I just noticed they are using the background slideshow featured image style to do that, but I’m not sure how they put it there, possible custom code, or could be done via a plugin (plugin loads data from a page or similar).

Cubell

Hi bud. Me again… please reply this time as soon as you can! :-)

So I’m just wondering, how do I get the front page slider to look like this – http://luxtonclinic.com.au/

I like the idea it doesn’t have the posts availabe until scrolling down. Also the heading and sub-title is pretty cool for an area to add my web name!

Also, is there any chance of a header? When you live preview the magazine, it says CUBELL THEME PURCHASE X… now I know that’s a silly example as it isnt powered by your theme though if there is even a plug in or something to give me that… wow would just complete the full site!!

Finally in regards to the footer, how do I change the background image? And is there anyway for a full twitter feed. I like http://luxtonclinic.com.au/ footer. If I could get Twitter instead of Instagram that would be awesome.

Please work your magic and I hope to hear from you soon. On a tight deadline!

Thank you mate.

Ness is a stock theme, when you buy a license you are buying a license to use the theme with all the features described in the theme description page and what you see in the demo. The theme never claimed to do anything like what is seen on that site you found, they bought Ness and customized the code to suit their needs. If you want the same results, then you need to customize the code to do that too. Of course anything is possible with any theme, but if a specific setup/feature isn’t included in a theme, you have to create it.

I have been extremely patient and nice to you by trying to help as much as I can and gone beyond what is required from me. You need to understand that buying a stock theme does not mean you are buying the time or services of the author, it only means you are buying a license to use a stock theme. Setting it up and making it work differently to what the demo shows is called customization, and that is obviously not included with the license. For that you need to do it yourself or pay a developer to help you.

Support is optional on Themeforest (because these are stock products), but I choose to provide free support to help fix bugs and listen to suggestions, not customizations.

You need to go to http://studio.envato.com where you can find a developer who can help you do whatever you want with the theme.

Regarding the Read progress bar, I looked on Chrome on Windows and it works fine to me, what operating system/browser do you not see it in?

Cubell

Apologies Cubell mate.

I get your point.

I just thought with your advice then I wouldn’t need a developer and as you gave me the code “[ic_add_posts template=’cb-blog-style.php’]” I thought that was half the battle.

All we needed from then was the preview shot that NESS offers and I would be ready to promote the site.

Just a bit gutted to be honest because I had a set way for the site to look and when I seen luxton then I thought it would be possible.

End of the day, I appreciate your help and I’m going to have to work around it :(

If you ever find out how to do that then please let me know.

A homepage like such could be something to think about for NESS’s next update.

SI

Thanks for that, I do understand where you’re coming from, that’s why I tried to help! Did you try my other idea? Set the latest posts to another page (settings -> reading), then try a plugin or similar to load that blog page into your actual homepage? I did a quick search and found this one (not tested though): https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-content-shortcode/

Might help!

Hi, Cubell team! How i can increase (“cheat”) my heart likes in post? Can i change string of code for it or another way?

Hey Shooroop87,

I’m afraid support can only be provided for confirmed buyers, can you please login with the account you purchased the theme with to ask the question or register in the support system: http://support.cubellthemes.com and I’ll do my best to help you.

Hi Cubell, Been working with this theme for a while now and really love it. Still have one niggling thing though. I really need a page that if you turn the featured image off, the smaller header space behind the title can still be filled with an image rather than left with an ugly grey space. Any way of doing this? Don’t even mind if it’s a global image, it just feels unfinished the way it is but sometimes I need a page without the full page feature image. Thanks!!

Hi Sunshinevideo,

Thanks for choosing Ness and for the love for it :)

That is a really good point and I will see if I can add a new “Cover” featured image style for pages/posts to achieve that.

Until then, you can do it with custom CSS like this, copy/paste the following code into your Theme Options -> Custom Code -> Custom CSS box:

.page-id-123 .cb-cover.cb-no-image { background: url(http://url-of-background-image) top left repeat; }

And replace the 123 part to the ID of your page. That will make the background repeat. To make it stretch use this instead:

.page-id-123 .cb-cover.cb-no-image { background: url(http://url-of-background-image);   background-size: cover; background-repeat: no-repeat; }

Hope this helps :)

Cubell

Thank you! Really appreciate the help and will try the CSS workaround. :)

No problemo :)

Hi there,

Beautiful theme, just purchased it. Curious, is it possible for this theme to have full-width video playing for post headers, or within the post itself? I am referring to something similar to what you see in this page, which is somewhat similar to your theme.

http://mashable.com/2015/05/19/an-american-in-cuba/?utm_cid=hp-hh-pri

Hey again,

No problemo :)

You need to enable it in the theme options. But the option will only appear if you select the slide-in menu type and enable sticky option, as without those two options enabled, it wouldn’t be able to work (or it wouldn’t be visible working).

Thanks.

I’m having a few more issues, hope you can help with these:

1. I cant seem to update the header image. I have tried to upload a new photo or select from the media library, but it stays on the header image that is currently uploaded. Are you aware of any bugs with the header image?

2. I only see the hamburger style slide-in menu when I shrink the page down. When I am on desktop full screen, the menu expands so that the menu items are displayed horiztonally across the top of the screen. How do I set it so the menu is always the hamburger icon?

2. I cannot get the name of my site title to show up, no matter what color I change the text to. Are you aware of any issues with this?

Thanks

Hey Ryatco,

1- There haven’t been any reports of that, but if you share your site URL I can take a look and maybe get a clue from the source code.

2- You need to use the “Slide-in” menu option in the theme option, it sounds like you have the regular text option.

3- Do you mean in the browser itself? If so, install SEO by Yoast which helps improve your internal SEO and you can also set the titles there.

Hope this helps!

Cubell

Hi.

So the site is running well. However when you click on a shared link on any of the pages on mobile, the main image does not appear a lot of the time or it take very long to load. This is also apparent in photos throughout the post. Sometimes they have even jumbled about!

The page itself on mobile at times doesn’t load properly. By that I mean the cover image on the front page. I sometimes have to refresh the page a few times before it runs the way it should be.

It’s ok if I know this bug but for visitors it’s not premium at all. Had this problem since I bought the theme and my other page admin has began to realise it as well on his device. He stays in another country!

Hope there is a way around this.

Thanks

I’m afraid that this kind of magic is really quite specific and deep customizations, so apart from the following I can’t really help much more: to control the image avatar sizes you’d use what I shared before, but with widths, so:

#bbpress-forums img{  width: 20px!important;  }

And that would make them 20px wide/tall.

And regarding the reading progress, perhaps this might help:

.bbpress #cb-dynamic-area { display:none; }

And regarding the featured images, they should be full-screen, if the page is showing it that way, there is either a Javascript issue on your site (try disabling plugins) or you have custom code doing it.

Hope this helps bud,

Cubell

I find this very confusing. It cannot be that featured images cover less than half the page size. Take a look at this page: http://socceriraq.net/calendar/ – I just installed The Events Calendar plugin and configured it. There’s nothing I can do to make the featured image cover the full screen.

Ah, that is because that image is the cover image for when no images are set. Your Calendar page is created by the plugin so it most likely isn’t even trying to show the featured image (using it’s own template or similar).

I followed it up again earlier today :)

Hey, I have a weird problem with my pages. When I set the featured image, it doesn’t show up in the actual page (there is still the grey box). I have it saved properly, with the featured image set to parallax. This issue only occurs for pages, not posts. Any idea what I could be doing wrong, or how I can fix it?

Thanks a bunch, this theme is beautiful.

Hey again,

Ah I see! That is really weird, would it be possible to re-install Ness to be on a fresh copy and see if it works there? To do that, you’d need to activate another theme (any theme), then delete Ness and then install it again (download it again to ensure a fresh copy). If you still have issues, then before editing code, share the URL with me on http://support.cubellthemes.com so I can take a look at it.

Just remember that doing a re-install will also delete any customizations you have done to the theme files (actual hard edits, like the one you did to fix the parallax on page). If you have edited other things, make a backup of the edited files before deleting it!

And the second issue seems to be that the thumbnails weren’t created for that thumbnail, did you do http://docs.cubellthemes.com/ness/#!/important_first_steps ?

Cubell

Ohhh oops that was my bad, I completely missed that step somehow. They’re perfect now, thank you!

I’ll try the reinstall at another time, and I’ll be sure to contact support if I still have issues then.

Thank you SO MUCH for being responsive, and helpful. Will definitely purchase themes from you again!

It’s no problemo, I’m happy to help where I can :)

Hi There,

Thank you very much for the beautiful theme. I have set it up nicely and easily, however there are 2 things that i cant get working properlly.

1 – the parallax effect on the fullscreen image. When I set it up as per documentation, the screen goes black. It only works on mobile.

2 – I cant get the Post anvigation on the top of the page like the Demo.

Could you help me please!?

Hey Th_nogueira,

Thanks very much for the kind words and for choosing Ness :)

1- Did you try disabling all plugins to see if one of them is causing problems? If so, can you share the post URL to take a look?

2- If you share the URL I can take a look at this too :)

Cubell

Hello,

I really like your WP theme, but I have an issue with a mobile version. Is it normal that the demo page doesn’t work on the iOS devices?

On the main page cover image doesn’t appear. There are also no post titles. On the post page cover image doesn’t load properly. I see only a black background instead. Gallery doesn’t work either.

Could you check and fix this please?

Thanks

Hi Xar,

Thanks for the interest in Ness, and thanks for letting me know about that problem, it was a minify bug from a plugin! I deleted it and now it all works as expected again. Thanks again for letting me know about this, I would have never known! :)

Cubell

Hi,

Thank you for a quick reply and fix! Is there any possibility to change the behaviour of showing the post titles on a main page? They appears only after tapping on the pictures which is not very intuitive for page readers.

Thanks

Hey again,

No problemo! And the titles load after the image loads, they don’t react to users tapping, however, you can easily disable that by copy/paste the following code into the Theme Options -> Custom Code -> Custom CSS box:

#cb-featured-image .cb-meta-data { opacity: 1; }

That will make it be visible on load :)

Hi There,

A few more questions that I’m hoping you can help me with:

1. I can’t get my site name or description to show up properly on the page. When I look at my Chrome tab, it only displays my full URL. Here is my site: http://knight.st

2. How do I create tiled galleries? Right now, it looks like I’m only able to create standard wordpress galleries. I did some searching through these comments and you mentioned that you have to have jetpack activated. I believe that I do, but I am still unable to create other types of galleries.

3. If you look at the four posts on my page (http://knight.st), the two latest posts have their featured images cutoff and change the aspect ratio, whereas the two earliest posts display the full image and the proper aspect ratio. Is there a reason for this happening, and how can I fix it so that the featured image always shows the full size/aspect ratio.

Thanks!

Hi Cubell,

3 – not yet. Please have a look at the homepage again as I was playing around with stuff and you may not have seen my issue. The preview for posts titled “Parallax featured Image” and “This is a test post” are using the correct feature image size that I am looking for (proper aspect ratio, no cropping). All the other latest posts seem to be cropping the featured image. www.knight.st I am referring to the previews on the homepage, and not within the posts themselves.

Thanks!

Also, is there a way to add the Date of the post to thumbnails/featured images on the homepage?

Hey again,

Did you run the “force regenerate thumbnails” plugin after installing the theme to update all your existing images? Because on the first slider, the reason the image proportions are different is due to the images loading their original sizes, not the thumbnail sizes that WordPress creates for the theme to make it all consistent and proportionally the same.

And I see that you managed to add the dates to the homepage posts now :)

Cubell

Hey Cubell,

I’d like to know which filter (css code preferably) you have used for the footer image. I want to use the same filter for another element on my website.

Thanks,

Soccer Iraq

Hey bud,

Sure thing, it’s literally just an image with a very low opacity value .element { opacity: 0.075; } and on the parent element it has a dark background and it looks like that.

Cubell

Hey Cubell,

Thanks a lot. I’ll try it and let you know if it doesn’t work!

Sure thing :)

Hi there.

1. I wish to create the following hierarchy & navigation, and I would love to discover that I can accomplish that under your beautiful Theme!

I wish to present at the homepage full-screen slider, only the site categories, and below it the categories folders/thumbnails.

Is that possible?

I’ve seen that I can choose to show on the homepage slider, posts based on tags or categories. This doesnt help me too much.

I can live with slider full with all site posts, but at least I wish to display on the homepage only the categories.

Is that possible?

2. Another question: do you guys got a template suitable for Food & Recipes blog?

I own one and I search for an alternative. My domain is www.saboresdeisrael.com.br.

I’ve seen that all your other templates attend Magazines, which doesn’t sound like the best fit for me.

Thank you! :)

Thank you Cubell. Can’t I try to promote posts the the homepage carousel, and use homepage as a static page, when there I`ll place manually HTML code I`ll copy from the category page? I think it is achievable, don’t you?

Regarding the food templates, these are beautiful designs. Modern. But are little cold for my type of blog. I sell mediterian food, which demands more colors, but who knows what will be with my blog till i`ll do the change.

Thank you and hope the theory I suggested its possible.

I am a web app developer. My css & html skills are high. Hope this contribute to your analyzation of the situation. Thank you.

No problemo!

That may be achievable, but by adding HTML, it will be static and you to change it in the future you’d have to edit the code each time, which could be okay for your needs, but I’m afraid for customizations like that I can’t really help, as it goes well beyond my free support policy. I hope you can understand.

And thanks for checking out my other themes, if they aren’t what you are after for your project, I definitely recommend searching around Themeforest for another theme, as you will almost definitely find the perfect one for the project :)

Best of luck!

I believe the infinite scroll is not counting pageviews correctly. my site has lost a lot of pageviews since using your theme.

It is impossible for a theme to be responsible for something like that to visitors. But, again, if you use Ajax for loading content (such as infinite scrolling) then as I have tried to explain to you in thorough detail, then your pageviews will obviously not be tracked, as that is the physical nature of Ajax code and functionality. It has nothing to do with the theme. Use any theme on earth that uses infinite scroll (and doesn’t explicitly add code for your chosen stats counting service) and you will experience the same thing.

And when you install a new theme, your traffic will be identical, as search engines and all your backlinks and your regular visitors are still coming through the exact same way, it doesn’t matter what theme you install. You could delete your website, and the still same number of visitors will try to go on your site, as they don’t know the site has been deleted (or changed) until they go on it.

So if your actual visitors has gone down, then that is 10000000% nothing to do with the theme. Google’s search algorithm changes very frequently and you will always experience changes in traffic.

The only thing that a theme can actually influence is your “page views”, as things like navigation menus and your actual site setup, such as infinite scroll, which I have painfully tried to explain to you over and over, of course change page view numbers.

This is my last response to you regarding this as I am simply repeating myself over and over. If you want your visitor’s entire behavior to be tracked, you need to use numbered pagination instead of infinite scrolling. That way you will get an accurate page views number. And for the last time, I do understand your concerns over the infinite scroll, so I am going to try to add code so that Ness’ infinite scroll does send a push to Google’s Analytics each time someone uses infinite scroll, so that you get more accurate page views.

Cubell

I have some more information as I’ve continued to dig in… the # of errors in structured data also increased the moment i installed the theme:

http://cl.ly/c4pg and http://cl.ly/c4lF

That’s theme-related, without question.

I had a look and you are right about that one, but you can easily fix them all and get perfect structure data by editing single.php and deleting:

itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/BlogPosting"

As it isn’t necessary to have that anymore as Google removed author markup for its SERPs.

But just in case you are wondering, data structure errors would literally have zero impact on traffic or SEO, data structure is literally only to help search engines understand the structure and they are actually only ever useful for things like ratings, but, again, have nothing to do with traffic or for SEO purposes. The only time/situation they can improve traffic is if you have review data and show it in the SERPs through rich snippets, because search results with visual review data have a better click through rate. But the nature of a simple WordPress personal blog with no reviews means there is nothing complicated about the data and the search engines can read it all fine.
