Updating the theme via FTP, is that the only way?

Thanks Gene

Hi,

Yes, this way you don’t have to re-install the theme through Wordpress from scratch and re-activate it for each update

I cannot seem to get the instagram working, I have done everything detailed in your support docs and it is the latest version, but nothing displays on the instagram page. Pls can you help?

BrutalDesign

Hi,

First be sure that you have BdGram plugin installed. You have to connect your instagram account to your web site through the BdGram admin panel. To do so, get your access key here http://bdgram.brutaldesign.com/

And paste it in your BdGram panel in your wordpress admin.

I hope it will help

Is there a way to not have names show up on the album thumbnails?

Never mind. I added this to the custom css. .album-title {display: none;}

Hello, Can you tell me how you made the single gallery page that is on the demo site open and load all the images. The menu item in the photos drop down menu. I am not understanding that from the documentation. Is there a specific page template that you selected for that page?

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can simply choose one of your gallery as menu item in the Wordpress menu admin panel. (Click on screen options on the top right to show the galleries posts)

Ok I got that part now. Thanks. One other question about that gallery you have on the single gallery demo. The thumbnails are smaller than the image it is linked to. How do you set that up. Right now the images I have in the gallery are all the original size of the images. You can see it here: http://tinyurl.com/bs8bs6v I am not too confident changing php but any advice on helping me with this would be greatly appreciated. By the way. The theme is awesome. Love it!

BrutalDesign

Hi,

In the demo I simply upload big images, that way, the thumbnail will be smaller than the full size image. As the site is responsive, the number of columns and the thumbnails width vary depending on the window width.

I hope it will help

Can you tell me how to this also: “You can set the lightbox effect to any image by adding the “fancybox” class to the link through wordpress. You can create galleries with 150px X 150px thumbnails in using the gallery feature from the theme.”

BrutalDesign
If you want to set your image to 150px X 150px in your galleries, open functions.php and replace the row 108 by
'photo' => array(150, 150, true),

I am trying to promote the website created with your theme on social media platforms and when I post a link to a specific page of the blog on Facebook the thumbnail that represents the posts when it is a video (even though I have generated a thumbnail on the post) is a generic one of several “volume” bars. I would love to be able to publish the posts on the blog with the generated thumbnail to represent what the blog post is talking about. Help! : ) Thanks!

Hi,

The facebook cache is very strong. 1/ you can upload your default share image in the “Share” panel 2/ You can check which image is actually attached to your post by using his tool: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug

I hope it will help

Hey BD, Have you had any issues reported using the contact form and gmail. I can’t get it to come through.

BrutalDesign

Nope. i ‘m using gmail on my own, no issue. If you use your contact form for testing, be sure to use an existing email in the form. Otherwise the WP mail function won’t send the mail. Also, be sure to set your email adress in the theme options. You can also check your spam folder just in case. I hope it will help

Hello, do all versions of this theme work with WP 3.5.1? I never updated to 2.1 version cause it was too much hassle to change all the settings from previous version.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

The only issue you could find with versions below 2.0 is the portfolio filter that don’t work. By the way, you won’t loose your settings and content if you update the theme.

Hi,

Great theme, loving using it!

On the portfolio single page I’d like to be able to add an image beneath the portfolio sidebar information on the left-side – beneath where you have ‘Client’ and ‘Website’. Aware this might need some custom css/php. Is this possible?

Thanks!

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can add some content in the portfolio sidebar, in single-work.php file after row 57. If you want some add a different content on each post, it would require some customization that are beyond the scope of the support.. The key file is in includes/theme metabox.php. For exemple you can add anew field after row 35:
array(
                'label'    => 'Another field',
                'id'    => 'bd_work_fielname',
                'type'    => 'text'
            ),
..and display it in the front end , in single-work.php by adding, after row 35:
<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'bd_work_fielname', true); ?>

I hope it will help

Hi,

I’m receiving spam from the contact template page. How can I customize it with a human check like an addition or a captcha ? I’ve found some plugins that will do the job but I’d have to use another form and I just feel fine with yours.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

There is an empty and hidden field in the form, and it avoid receiving spam from bot, because they will fill this field, and the message is not sent if this hidden field is filled.. It is simple but pretty efficient for me so I am surprised you still git spam from the contact form. I couldn’t tell how to add a captcha. Are you sure you don’t get these spams from the comments?

Hi,

I’m pretty sure since I receive e-mails and not unwanted comments. Moreover, I think there is only one bot behind this, as the mail addresses are all forged the same way : 10 or 12 alphanumeric characters, then a year (like 1988), then @gmx.com. I noticed your hidden field but unfortunately, did not seem sufficient for me.

Besides that, comments are sheltered by Akismet, which is set right, with the API key and everything green. No problem on the comment :)

Until I find some way to spare myself these spams with the native contact form, I’m using a plugin instead, which I don’t like as much as the original but it will do the job with a captcha (solvemedia, here).

Hi i would like to know if in the main page it is possible to insert some text? I would like to write a good amount of text (and maybe some images) and put it directly below the main slideshow on the main page. Thanks

BrutalDesign

Sure, you can insert any content in the homepage. In the demo, as used shortcodes.

I hope it will help

Hello,

@esquissewei : you can edit the home page and insert your text between the shortcodes, wherever you want it to display. Everything is very customizable.

BD : I just set some works in order to feed the portfolio page. When I display the work page, everything goes right. But when I try to display the portfolio page (with portfolio template page set and nothing custom in it), the content seems to start loading and then nothing : it stays blank (or empty). Could you glance at it on http://chez.hk please ?

I’m maybe missing something. Thank you.

Hi,

Be sure to set a featured image for each work. It will be used as work cover.

Oh ok, thank you, I just didn’t get it was working the same way as blog entries. Is there any mean to display works with margins ? I mean, like albums and not like the video page ? I’d like to make it work like spanning tree : work types as categories and subcategories below. Exemple : - Music – Compositions – Featurings – Interpretations - Graphism – Drawings – Paintings – 3D

Thank you for your time.

OOps, not displaying right. Hope you got what I meant. Btw, what image size is optimal for featured images in the work/portfolio section ? For the responsible to be efficient, does it need 1920px width too ?

BrutalDesign

Hi,

In demo I used 1240X630.

Hi,

Just pushed a site live with this theme and really happy with how it looks! Thank you

One thing though – how can I reduce the size/blur of the featured images in posts. Is there a particular size needed? The featured image in this post is 923×2000px

Hi,

I seems that you have the version 0.2 of noisy installed. You should update the theme to the latest version. (and wordpress as well)

It should fix your issue.

Hi,

Love your template. thinking on buying it but I’m new to this and have few question. 1. Can I change orange separator color? 2. Can I have all the albums on front page. Now in your preview you are showing only 4. And if I can have all the albums on front page, can I choose in which order I want to place them. 3. Under menu when I hover over “photos” it says “Albums” and “single gallery”. Is it possible that on mouse hover it shows all album titles? 4. Is there limit on maximum number of photographs within each album.

Thnx

BrutalDesign

Hi

1/ You can change the accent/orange color in the theme options 2/ You can use the album page as homepage , yes 3/ The album are ordered by post date. You can sumply edit the date to change the order. 4/Yes, you can display single galleries as menu item in the wordpress menu manager 5/ No. No maximum limit

I hope it will help

Hi,

Hope you’re good! Few questions regarding the theme:

1. How can I change the background colour of the galleries to black? I have tried adding custom css but only succeed in changing the whole page black. My client wants the background body of the galleries to be black – just where the photos are displayed

2. Is it possible to make the social icons in the top bar bigger? If so, how?

3. On my clients screen the drop down hover doesn’t work for the main menu. It’s okay on my screen, http://bishbashboshproductions.co.uk/, if you hover over About. But on their screens the drop downs are permanently showing under About, the hover doesn’t work and everything looks out of line. If you make the window smaller when the site is open you might be able to see what I mean.

Look forward to your replies

Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

I ‘m pretty good! Thx for asking. I hope you’re doing well too. You can use the theme options custom CSS box to add some new rules

1/
.single-gallery #main {background:black}
2/
#top-social-icons-container .social-icons a img {width:24px; height:24px}

3/Be sure to set a different menu for the “mobile menu” location in the menu manager. And don’t use sub item for your mobile menu. More info in the doc

Hi BD, I just updated the newest version of the theme and I am having 2 issues of difficulty. 1. The footer seems to have spacing at the bottom that shouldn’t be there. I looked at the CSS and it is the same as previous version. Maybe I am missing something?

2. Cannot get rid of the Noisy favicon despite numerous attempts and following the guide. I had it working before update?

Any help would be appreciated. http://alturl.com/afct6 Thanks Billy
BrutalDesign

Hi,

It is a bug from pinterest. Uncheck pinterest in the share options to remove the blank space.

I can see your favicon. To be able to see your new favicon, empty your browser’s cache and refresh your page a couple of times.

cheers
