The fonts don’t seem to be working. The titles as well the tagline aren’t displaying the correct font. When I change the font in the theme options section nothing happens.

Hi again Martin!

I’m back with some more questions :)

1. Is it possible to manually sort/reorder the portfolio items? I’ve been looking around but can’t seem to find a way to do it. I need one item to always be on the top of the page.

2. For the portfolio page I’m not going to use the lightbox but will have the image and link lead directly to the project page. Therefore it would be nice to have both the image and the title texts hover states triggered at once when you mouseover either of them. How would I go about making that happen?

Cheers and thanks in advance! /D

MushinDesign

Hey there.

To sort your items you simply need to alter the creation date of your portfolio item, off the top of my head I think you can do this when looking at the list view of your items and clicking quick edit.

Could you give me a little more detail about your second question I’m not 100% on what your trying to achieve.

Thanks, Martin

Ah, excellent, that did it for the sorting!

Regarding my second question, let’s say the user hovers over a portfolio thumbnail in the portfolio page. Then the overlay hover action will be triggered for the thumb. I would like to have the link beneath it change color aswell simultaneously, and vice versa. This so it is more obvious that they do the same thing, which is linking to the project page, because that is how i’m going to use it.

Does that make more sense?

Cheers and thanks!

MushinDesign

Ah I see what you mean, I’m not entirely sure how you would go about doing this I’m afraid.

Maybe a site such as CSS Tricks may help you out here :)

Hello Martin,

I just purchased this theme and love it. I just had one question how do I change my avatar on the blog page?

Thanks

Hey and thanks for purchasing :)

Eddeaux got it spot on that’s what you need to do.

Thanks, Martin

Zackia,

the avatars are generated dynamically by using Gravatar.com. You set one up there, the you put the email address you use there in your admin profile and it will show up automatically. At least that was how I did it.

MushinDesign

Thanks :)

Mushin,

I emailed you separately as you requested. I did purchase this theme and even rated it 5 stars. It’s awesome, but I’m still having issues with the portfolio page and I’m sure it’s a simple fix. Here is my comment again:

This theme is awesome, but… when I’m setting up my individual portfolio pages the images are dynamically resizing to 690px. I’ve manually sized this image to 600px, but it is still stretched and bleeding over the font. http://chemistcreative.com/portfolio/firemen-lawncare/ That is an example of the page. Thanks for your help and the great theme! Eddie

MushinDesign

Hey Eddeaux hope your still enjoying the theme!

I replied to you on the 27th October asking for your WordPress login so I could take a closer look, maybe it got lost in your junk mail.

I just took a look at the link you supplied and it seems fine did you find out what the problem was?

Thanks, Martin

Thanks guys! You guys are awesome!!

Hi MushinDesign,

I bought your theme, planning to make a new portfolio site for a friend of mine. Looks great, but when I have the 3-column portfolio layout, via theme options get a max of 9 projects, then pagination shows up but the link (portfolio/page/2/) returns a 404-Error?

I don’t know if you could try it in your preview theme? But it’s quite critical for me that the pagination works on the portfolio. BTW : pagination in the blog-index works like a charm?

Could you please help me out here? Cheers & Ciao ..

MushinDesign

Hey and thanks for purchasing :)

I just gave it a go on my install and all worked fine. Could you try changing your permalink settings in WordPress admin to Default I feel this may be the issue.

Thanks, Martin

Hi Martin,

yep, that did the trick, thanks! .. But, as you probably know leaving my permalinks on the default setting isn’t good for my SEO .

Is there a possibility that this could work if I have another setting (preferably: / postname /), so it can bring me some extra search engine visitors?

Can I change this in the code? Because having the settings on / postname /, the blogpart works just fine? I do know something about WP so I can change the codes if necessary.

Would appreciate if you could look for me, cheers and ciao ..

BTW : love the way you coded the stuff, looks good. Enjoy your weekend!

Martin, me again ..

Your answer just made me think again, so I checked the .htaccess-file .. this was empty!

So I rewrote the .htaccess including:

RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

.. and now, my dear friend, the pagination for the portfolio works too! So thanks for redirecting my thoughts by mentioning the ‘default permalinks settings’.

Next time you’ll have somebody with the same problem, you now know the solution! Once again, thanks for your quick reply, have a great day!

Cheers & Ciao ..

.. sorry for that, forgot I’m not able to paste all codes, so here it is again:

# BEGIN WordPress<br /> <ifmodule mod_rewrite.c /><br /> RewriteEngine On<br /> RewriteBase /<br /> RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f<br /> RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d<br /> RewriteRule . /index.php [L]<br /> <br /> # END WordPress<br />

Otherwise you can fing it here too: http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/topic/wordpress-performance-improvement-that-does-not-require-a-plugin-simple-fix

P.S.: Use the first code, this one works! The second code doesn’t work, so stick to the first one!

Ciao ..

MushinDesign

Thanks for posting that up that will certainly help for the future!

Enjoy the theme and I’d love to see the site when your finished!

Have a great day, Martin

Hello Martin,

I really like your theme and i hoped that i could use it for my portfolio. But when I install I get this error:

Theme installed successfully.

Maybe you can help me ?

Hi and thanks for purchasing :)

I think you might not have uploaded the correct folder, the theme folder is inside the folder which you download from ThemeForest.

Can you try uploading the correct one and let me know if that does the trick.

Martin

Default-user

Hey Martin,

I figured out i just had to rename the folder from Novus to novus-wordpress-portfolio. Thanks for that. I just have a problem with displaying the blog correctly. How can i make the Blog look like at your preview ? What i got is only the Archiv. www.simplycreative.de Just so you know what it looks like

MushinDesign

Have you set up the blog as described in the documentation?

For example, creating the blog page and setting it as the sites blog page in the Reading settings within the WordPress admin?

Martin

I just purchased the theme and I am having trouble getting my portfolio images on the the portfolio page. The link works fine but the place the image should appear only shows a rectangle when I hover over it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

MushinDesign

Hi and thanks for purchasing :)

When you set your image can you make sure you have set it using “Set Featured Image” to the right of the items content area when you create it.

Let me know if that was the problem please.

That Worked… Thanks a million Martin

Hello Martin, my great appreciation for the design ! Because my site is in Italian I would like to translate all the words that remain fixed in English (“or” in the main page – “back to the portfolio” and “Live Link Unavailable” in the portfolio pages – “Our location” in the contact page and all that are in the contact form). Is it possible and how ? I tried to change something with the editor but I had no results.

Another question; it’s possible to make fixed the multiple images in a portfolio project and changing them only with a clic on the red dot ?

Many thanks, Alberto

MushinDesign

Hey Alberto and thanks for purchasing and your kind words :)

For “or” you need to open the home page template your using (template-home-nivo or -content or -alt) and do a search for “or” then modify that.

For “Back To Portfolio” you will need to open up single-portfolio.php and if you do a search for the text you want to replace should be able to find it to modify (I believe it’s around line 9).

You can change “Live Link Unavailable” within the theme options under the Portfolio tab.

For the contact page ones you need to open up template-contact.php and do a search for the text you wish to modify.

Do you mean so the slider doesn’t auto start? If so, simply open up single-portfolio.php again and search for the text play: 4000 and change the 4000 to 0.

Hope this helps :) Martin

Many thanks Martin ! :-) With your advices I was able to change all the words… except for the “Live link Unavailable”... I would like to have no words at all so I try to cancel the phrase in the control panel (theme options>portfolio) and it seems to disappear in the portfolio pages but after some times it is again visible. What can I do ?

MushinDesign

Hey, Did you remove the “Live Link Unavailable” text in the options and save it? If you like, you can contact me from the contact form on my profile page with your WordPress login details and I’ll take a look.

Regards, Martin

Martin, the problem seems solved. But rather than simply delete the phrase I had to put a “space” in the options: in the first way it doesn’t work, in the second way it goes. Many thanks for all your help ! Alberto

MushinDesign

Brilliant :)

Enjoy the theme!

Hi, i have some problems with Novus Theme: I can’t change the Theme Style under Styling in Site Options. if I click on the dark image, nothing change ! The theme still in light style.. How can i fix that ? Thank you

Hi and thanks for purchasing :)

I have just replied to your email.

Hi Martin, just a suggestion… because in a portfolio we put images of our works do you think that, in a future revision, it would be useful to assume something that blocks the download of images? (if it is possible).

My best regards, Alberto

MushinDesign

Hi Alberto,

I’m not 100% sure but if you check the WordPress plugin directory there may already be a plugin available to do just what you want.

Regards, Martin

Hi Martin,

I have one question about the Novus Theme. Which plugins are you using for theme options and for porfolios? Are they in basic standard downloaded plugins?

Regards, Delpierooo

MushinDesign

Hi  Delpierooo,

All the features you see on the demo site are built into the theme so you are not required to download and install any extra plugins to get the most out of the theme.

Hope this answer your question.

Regards, Martin

Hi, thanks for the previous answer.

I know I get all the plugins with the theme. In themes I am using now I have specific plugins for portfolios and theme options. That is why I kind of want to know which plugins(for theme options and portofilo) are used? Not that I would have to install them, just an info about them.

Regards, Delpierooo

MushinDesign

I see. Well the theme options is taken from the Options framework which is integrated into the theme rather than using it as a plugin and the portfolio is just set up using custom post types.

Regards, Martin
