hi,

I’m having trouble finding instruction on how to make a drop down menu. The help file says to open general.js, but that only customizes it.

I also wanted to have a “like” facebook button added to the each post. How would i go about doing that?

thanks cudazi..

cudazi

A dropdown can be created automatically when you create a page as a child of another in the page edit area, or if you use the new version, you can edit the menu in apperance > menus for the wordpress 3.0 menu system. Thanks!

Default-user

thank you for the quick response…

I guess that wasn’t included in the help file because it’s very basic, and I should be looking at the wordpress help. Will do that next time so I won’t be posting newbie stuff in here.

Thank you so much for this great theme!

Hello,

I have made two websites in my whole life, one using Studio 960 (http://charliebedandbreakfast.com/) and one using this one (http://java-archi.com/). I am getting kind of “cudazi addict”. I should not be really proud of that but I do not know any html or css whatsoever coding and I did get something to work thanks to your good docs and templates.

Now, I have some difficulties with the slider of this template, it works perfectly when I pull in some posts with dedicated id (using “promo_categories”) but it is very cumbersome to define that many posts. Hence, I have tried the “add_images” custom field but I can’t get it to work properly.

It works when I just give the image path,

http://java-archi.com/images/5_wolsemveld/wolsemveld01.jpg|...

but the figure is a bit too big so in order to resize it, I copy the help template and write:

http://java-archi.com/images/5_wolsemveld/wolsemveld01.jpg/940×400|...

but none of the images would load. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Hey Hadrien – the manual add image does not auto-size as the featured image functionality does, you’ll need to upload the images sized beforehand if you use that method. Thanks!

Hello again—Im trying to limit the number of posts that appear on my homepage. When I use the custom field “post_per_page” with 3 as the value nothing changes. Any ideas?

cudazi

Please make sure you’re applying the custom field to the home page vs any posts and that your page is set as the “home” page in settings > reading and that it’s using the “home” page template. Thanks!

I am indeed applying the custom field to the home page, which is also set correctly in “reading” as well as using the “home” template…still not working

Hey there!

I was wondering if there is any way to make the space between the Header and the featured images smaller… The white space is a bit too much for one of my clients!

Thanks! !

Hey Cudazi,

I have nearly finished (http://java-archi.com), I managed to solve a number of issues but I still have a couple of questions.

1. Post title link The main project page http://java-archi.com/?page_id=20 is of type Portfolio/Gallery. I use the thumbnail link so that when you click on the project image it leads to the associated project page and it works fine. My problem is that the title of the projects under the images is also clickable and it leads to a “post” page . Is there a way to either render the post title not clickable or to link it to the same page as the corresponding image?

2. Frame around slider In the homepage, http://java-archi.com/ a grey frame delimits the slider. Can I remove it, so that the (grey) sky of Brussels directly melts into the background?

3. Permalink In the Studio 960 template, it was possible to edit the permalinks directly in the page. In OPEN , is there a simple way to get the same thing? I tried to play around with the “Custom Structure” in the permalinks Settings but without success. Cheers,

Thanks for your help!

Hadrien

cudazi

Hello!

1 – page-custom-portfolio.php line 69 you can change get_permalink() to $url like the thumbnail link above.

2 – Find #slider img shadow references in the stylesheet and remove or adjust as needed

3 – I’m not entirely sure what you mean here, the permalink settings are controlled in the WordPress install/admin, the theme doesn’t control this one

Thanks!

Hi,

I have had a headache over this for several months now, but finally I found out the reason and fixed it: On Nokia N900 ’s Gecko-based browser http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroB , the following line on OPEN causes all links to be broken, i.e. users can not navigate links at all – nothing happen:

/* Safari Seems to hate the “drop” on click in the dropdown menu */ .sf-menu a:active { position:static; }

I removed this, and it got fixed.

Not sure if you knew about it. I bought OPEN in a bundle so I have an old version, apparently.

I just purchased Open and I can’t seem to figure out how to upload the template to my WordPress account. Clearly this is not my forté. Help, please!!

cudazi

Hey there, thanks for the purchase, I really appreciate it!

Double check the _HELP folder, but in short, upload only the theme folder (contains index.php, etc…) to your site vs the entire download.

This should help too: http://wiki.envato.com/buying/support-buying/solving-broken-theme-issues/

Hi Cudazi,

I love this template, however I have an issue with the slider I was hoping you could help with?

If I use the promo_categories or the add_images custom fields the images display in the slider area, but not as a slider, they display on top of each other down the page.

Do you have any iodea why this is? I have looked at your video demo and followed it exactly but the images just display as big images ontop of each other:

Any ideas?

Thanks

Tony

Most likely there is a JavaScript error on the page, do you have other plugins enabled that may cause problems?

Default-user

I have disabled all plugins. I got this theme free with a bundle – has it been updated since then?

Thanks

Tony

cudazi

Did you get it with the Envato bundle?

Hi,

I have had to buy the updated version. Little bit annoyed that the one that we got in the bundle does not work, but paying the $30 and getting the new version has resolved this.

Thanks

Cudazi,

I love this template!! I purchased through envato birthday bundle. I have been having a great time customizing it and playing around with the options.

one thing:

How would you use the WP-SWFObject plugin on your template? I tried using the home template with promo_type set to widget then using html text, but it didn’t work. I also tried just using shortcodes in the main paragraph of a standpage template which seem liked it worked when I clicked preview, but then went away after I published it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

cudazi

That seems odd, what if you try a shortcode like the [gallery] ?

You may want to just duplicate the home page template and code it on in for that plugin.

<?php echo do_shortcode("[shortcode param='1']"); ?>

Hello, I was wanting to find out how i can increase the width of the logo image? My logo width is around 350 pixel. Where in the CSS can i adjust this? Presently my logo clashes into the Menu links on the right side of the header. Please advice.

cudazi

Hello,

In header.php, you’ll see two items that wrap the logo and menu, they have classes of grid_3 and grid_9 applied. Change them to grid_4 and grid_8 (must add to 12) and the logo area will be bigger.

Thanks!

Default-user

Thank you for your prompt response. I have 2 final questions. How do i reduce the height between the colored bar at the top of the page to the logo and the height between the logo to the pages first paragraph. also is there a way to take off the menu heading that appears on every page? Thats it. Please advice.

cudazi

The #banner element has 60px of padding top/bottom from screen.css, I would download Firebug, it works great for tracking down any styles and even lets you “play” without harming the site at all.

Check the help file for hide_meta and hide_title (do a find on the page) and that should get you what you need – thanks!

Hi!

This is sucj a nice theme. Since I got it through the Envato Birthday Budnle, I was wondering if I can get the updated version.

Thank you!

cudazi

Hey there!

Since it wasn’t a normal purchase, it’s not eligible for the free re-downloads like a normal file. I wasn’t aware of this either as a bundle-buyer myself but it makes sense that it’s more of a one-time purchase deal.

Thanks!

Cudazi,

Great Theme! I was implementing the theme when I realized that the drop down menus stopped working on the sub pages. I made a few minor modifications before I noticed that they stopped working. I added the search widget to the page sidebars, added a larger logo image, and added another search plug in. Realizing that these changes may have caused something screwy to happen, I removed the widget, changed the logo back to the original size, and deleted the plug in. The menu’s still won’t work. I am stuck and could really use some help. Thanks!

cudazi

Hey there,

You may want to try doing a quick compare of the files you edited to see what’s changed: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_comparison_tools

Compare it against the original download or replace the files to get it back up and running.

Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks for the info. Just fixed the issue after hours of pulling my hair out. Turns out, the Disable Drop Down check box in Theme Settings somehow got checked. Strange, I don’t remember doing it. Thanks though.

hey there that’s a great theme i wish you could answer me this question php cudazi_post_meta

is there a way to edit a file in order to ONLY show the date of the post? (always hidden author, comments number)

thanks in advance:)

cudazi

Hey there,

cudazi_post_meta is in functions.php, around line 160. You could remove the lines that you do not want to display.

Thanks!

Man thank you so much for that quick response:) I’m afraid i’m gonna need your help once again You see i’m trying to build this multilingual website and one of the languages to be uses is Greek.

I started filling the pages and everything seemed fine (pic: http://goo.gl/oPVrJ) Greek characters seem ok But then.. When i went to fix the navigation menu in order to put the pages in order, i saw this: (pic: http://goo.gl/UiEuC) And when i checked the website it looked like that: (pic: http://goo.gl/TlfVH)

Could you please help me to overcome this?:) It would be a major help I would really appreciate it

Yours

cudazi

Hey again,

I don’t really think this is theme related since it’s the standard WP admin area, have you tried this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language#Greek_.28el.29

I purchased this as a part of Birthday bundle so I’m aware I don’t qualify for support. just wanted to clarify a quick issue.

Does this theme support non english characters in post titles and text? Because those symbols seams to be missing and I had the same problem with previous theme I was trying. Wanted to make sure is it my WP configuration or Theme that does this? And if it’s Theme can I fix it somehow myself?

EDIT : Digging deeper. when the page is loading it shows the special symbols in some standard font and then those symbols disappears as the nice font gets loaded for titles. Is there a way I can switch to use that standard font instead of that nice one?

cudazi

Hey there, check out my Luxury theme (WordPress) FAQ page on the symbols not appearing, you may just need to re-generate the font with all the special characters. Thanks!

Love the look and feel of this theme which is why I bought it but I’ve spent 2 days now trying to get the portfolio template to do what I want.

I want to simply link the images that appear on my portfolio page- pulled in onto it by a specific category in a custom field- out to a specific page.

Add_urls isn’t working; I put into the value field the url of the page I want to link to, and all I get after a delay is…nothing.

This is really frustrating- I was sick of the shortfalls and glitches in free themes so I bought this, but I’m still spending ages getting this one to do what want, even after spending hours and hours pouring over the Help docs etc! Grrrrrrrr!!! Do hope you can help….

cudazi

Send me an email via my profile page and I’ll send you my demo export to see if that helps get you squared away. Thanks!

Just want to add after my post of a couple of days ago how quick and efficient Curt’s support is- problems sorted [which included a plug-in of mine that was disrupting things, something for people to be perhaps aware of if they are having glitches] and I now have a great, fully functioning theme that I think is excellent value for money. Will certainly consider the other themes available :)
