Hehe, thanks idraki! I actually had this finished early, but held off for testing.

Some super nice things coming to my other themes, thanks to Orson! :)

Why isn’t the Disqus module showing up? http://therealdev.in/post/32136293800/design-design-design

mikedidthis

Hi NivedRed,

Thanks for your message, it seems that you have added some CSS which is causing Disqus not to show up.

iframe {display:none !important;}

If you remove this line Disqus will show up.

I have also noticed your trying to use the font family ‘Helvetica’ via the Google Web Font options, which is causing an error, as Helvetica isn’t available.

The easiest way to fix this is to comment out Line 159 – 161. This will stop the error and I will add an option in the next update to specify if the font is a Google Web Font or not.

Again many thanks for your purchase, and I hope the above helps.

Thanks

Mike

Very impressive theme, looks great and plenty of options.

Just a couple of points, on the support page on the demo there’s mention of an Enable Tag Filter: “If enabled, tags you specified in on customisation screen will be displayed.” I took this to mean I could switch the drop-down off, because I use page links instead. Is this not the case? Can’t seem to find the option.

Secondly, I’d appreciate the option to make the page links and footer text bigger in the customisation options though I assume it could be done with extra CSS .

Thanks for a great theme!

mikedidthis

Hey Daven29.

Thank you! I am glad you like the theme!

And sorry, that’s my fault. I have amended the documentation. I will however add it as a proper option in the next update.

As for font sizes, this is something I wouldn’t be able to add. At the moment the fonts change size 6 times (when the max media query is hit), and I think adding all these as options to the dashboard would be over whelming.

Again, thank you for taking the time to comment! :)

mikedidthis

Hey again.

I just thought I would post a quick fix for the filter menu until I can get the update out.

If you remove Lines 1913 – 1962 this will remove the filter menu.

The only issue with this is pages are only added on the larger view, otherwise they are in the filter menu.

If you add the following to the Custom CSS box, that will show them all the time:
.pages {
    display: inline-block;
}

Let me know how you get on!

Many Thanks

Mike

thanks for taking the time to work on a quick fix, I appreciate it. it does work… up to a point. check out www.voiceofharold.co.uk and try adjusting the browser window width to see what I mean.

I don’t mean to be a pain but I did buy the theme thinking I could switch that drop-down off. I prefer things a bit simpler. plus I like to use on-screen labels that are different to the actual tags.

is there any additional CSS I could add just to bump up the size of the footer text even if it never changes across devices? no worries if not.

mikedidthis

Hey,

Not a pain at all! Yep, I agree and can only apologise that I made a mistake with the documentation. If you like, please request a refund, and I will happily accept.

I think adding the following Custom CSS would help with the pages in the nav better:

@media screen and (min-width: 0em) {
.pages {
   text-align:center
   display: inline-block !important;
}
.pages li {
    margin: 0 10px;
}
}
@media screen and (min-width: 43.75em) {
.pages {
    display: inline-block;
    float: right;
    margin: 20px 0px 20px 0px;
}
.pages li {
    margin: 0 10px;
}
}

I am happy to add better ‘pages’ support in the next update (as well as the enable filter option) but that won’t be out for at least another week or so.

As for the footer font-size, the increase is listed in the media-queries. Off the top of my head, I think you can just blanket the font rules as follow:

footer * {
font-size:XXpx !important;
}

Again, I can only apologise for the over sight.

Thanks

Mike

thanks a lot for your help, it looks much better now. if you could include better pages support and the option to hide the tag drop-down in the next update that would be great!

Hello, just purchased it, great theme! I have a problem with the Google Fonts. I’m using “Source Sans Pro” and “Ubuntu”, both of which do have Turkish character support. But I can’t make them work. Is there a piece of code that I have to change?

Pls. see here: http://kamara47.tumblr.com/post/32280508807/uussccggii-ccssgguuoo
mikedidthis

Hi hikmeth!

Thank you for the purchase and kind words.

Ignore my ignorance (I haven’t dealt with Turkish characters before), but is it possible to do the following:

Write some text as you expect to see it and screenshot it, and then type the same characters in the theme so I can see what is missing?

From what I can gather here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Turkish_characters the characters are showing correctly? This is what I see: http://i.imgur.com/l0Wsb.png

As for the Facebook Logo, great spot! To quickly fix this change Line 2446 to the following:
<li><a href="{text:Facebook Account Link}" class="icon-facebook">Facebook</a></li>

Again many thanks for the purchase, and let me know about the Turkish text.

Thanks

Hello again, We seem to be missing the Facebook logo in the footer area. Thanks!

Hello Mike,

Thanks for the facebook logo.

Re: Turkish text, what you see is how it should be, but this is what I get: http://i.imgur.com/wQL7f.png

In both fonts there is a substition for the s and g, whereas u and c seem ok.

mikedidthis

Hey hikmeth,

I am not 100% sure, but am seeking advice.

In the mean time, I am thinking maybe its the subset to the font that we need to include, does this make sense?

Many Thanks

Hello Mike,

Re: Turkish fonts, I have no experience with Google fonts but I think “Latin extended” might do the trick :)

Thanks,

Hikmet

mikedidthis

Hey Hikmet,

Excellent let me know how you get on, and if you struggle getting the code in. It may be worth just replacing the dashboard options with your own code.

If you need a hand, just shout.

Many thanks

Thanks, actually I have no experience with this stuff and it would really help if you could point out which lines of code I may need to modify to try different fonts and subsets.

Cheers.

mikedidthis

Hey,

No problem. Replace Line 159 – 161 with the following:
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Source+Sans+Pro:400,700,400italic,700italic|Ubuntu:700&subset=latin-ext' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

Not 100% sure its going to work, but let me know. I am still waiting on a friend to give me an answer.

Many Thanks

Just one final question before I stop bugging you:

Is there a way to stop the “About/Description” text appearing on the browser header, next to the name of the site? I do want to keep it in the footer, though.

I promise, no more questions :)

mikedidthis

Hey!

Glad we sorted the font issue out, don’t worry about asking questions! :)

I am not 100% sure what you mean? Can you screen shot the area with the text you want removing?

Many Thanks

Hey Mike,

I’d like to get rid off this long text up in the browser bar, but keep it in the footer area of the blog.

Hey Hikmeth,

I think this should do the trick: https://mikedidthis.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/759404-remove-description-from-page-title

One more issue, my Twitter feed does not show up! http://therealdev.in/

mikedidthis

Hey,

Everything is fine my side: http://i.imgur.com/kknFj.png

There is an issue with all twitter plugins when a single user makes an excessive amount of requests per hour, they are 404’d.

So I presume you were making some tweaks, and refreshing the page. Each refresh requests the twitter feed again. Over time these add up and a 404 is put on the feed for an hour.

It happens all the time when I am developing a theme.

To confirm, browse in private mode, that should show your feed.

Thanks

Hi Mike, great layout!

I have an issue with the page spacing. I want to make two columns, one with a picture, the other side with info, BUT , everytime I do it, the picture is super tiny while the words take up most of the space. I dont know how to increase the space of the page to allow me to do this successfully.

mikedidthis

Hi.

Thanks for the kind words. I have read your comment a few times, and I am still a little lost.

Can you send me a message view my profile page, and include an image of what your trying to achieve? I will try my best to support it, but it maybe out of the scope of what Orson can do. If so, I offer a paid customisation service, which maybe more fitting.

Many Thanks

Great theme! Quick question, if I want to format the title, and use lower case letters, how would I go about doing that? Also, I’d love a way to display the description under the title in the header instead of the footer.

mikedidthis

Hey Tyler,

Glad you like the theme. You would need to add some Custom CSS for the title changes, and some HTML changes for the description under the footer.

If you can email: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I will create a support document.

Many Thanks

Mike, any idea when the update to the theme is supposed to be released? I was reading about the pages issue and saw your fix above in the comments. I was wondering if you planned to include it in the upcoming update and when would that be (your last comment about it mention “next week” but that was 2 months ago :)).

Thanks, Vincent

mikedidthis

Hey Vince.

The update should be out for next week. It was delayed as I wanted to replace the lightbox with a solution that supported more devices. Testing is out, just waiting feedback.

And yes, the issue with the tags will be fixed in the next release.

Many Thanks

Mike
