Hi! I have read through the documentation and the comments here but I cannot find out how to link a text within a content area/pane to an pdf? I have uploaded my pdf to the media gallery but cannot get it to work. Please advice how and which possibilites I have to link? Downloadbuttons, textlinks etc?

Thanks a lot!

pehaa

Hi,

Use the shortcodes and paste the pdf url as the url parameter, sth like that :
[faktory-button url="http://localhost/wp-faktory/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/2361-LettreInfos-AE_Octobre2013.pdf" is_inner_link="false" open_pane_after_scroll="false" label="Click here"]
You can also just use media. Just tested – both solution work well.

First of all, I love the theme! It was exactly what I was looking for. I am currently setting up my filtered portfolio and I wanted to showcase video projects i’ve done. Is there a way to embed a youtube video into the showcase pane?

Thank you.

pehaa

Hi,

Thank you very much. For the content that loads with ajax the automatic WP embeding does not work (we’ll try to fix it in the next update). You’d have to add the video this way, e.g.
<iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/65262978" height="281" width="500" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Hi there,

My designer is trying to create a child theme but has found there is something in the way the Panes theme is coded that isn’t not allowing us to import the styles. Without the child theme we can’t make changes to the core files that won’t get overwritten with a theme update.

Any advice or workarounds?

Many thanks!

Hey there, we copied your code exactly from the sample in your screenshot & it’s still did not changing the main navigation fonts like it shows in your screenshot. Any thoughts?

pehaa

Hey,

There is one comma too much in your code (before .menu-item). Also there might a few more places where BenchNine should be overridden, just scan style_dev.css to find them all.

Hi, I have several panes which are loaded on page load, making the initial website load very slow. Is there an option or is it possible to add some kind of javascript plugin so that the images are “lazy” loaded, only when they are really displayed?

Thanks!

Hi, thanks for a good theme. Actually, I have a little problem with portfolio on my web-page. I need two different portfolios on my site. But when I am creating a second pane and choosing “portfolio”, a new one is just a copy of previous. Could You help me please in solving this problem.

pehaa

Hi,

Thank you very much for purchasing Panes.

The showcase is generated automatically from all “Items” so, unfortunately, there is only one portfolio possible. We’ll consider adding multiple portfolio in the theme update.

I do have a problem when I embed a video in my post. Thanks to the fitvid-function, every video will be 100% of my pane. But I want to give some videos a custom width, which is smaller than these 100%, with text floating around it. How can i disable the fitvid-function?

pehaa

Hi,

Maybe instead wrap your videos with divs of a given width, sth like that
<div style="float:left; width:250px; margin-right:24px">
http://vimeo.com/65262978
</div>

I need help editing this. Doesn’t look the same as other WP templates. Please help! As of right now, I can only edit the first pane and don’t have any options to change anything else. I appreciate all the help you can give me. Thanks

How can I add HTML-code inside the shortcode-toggle-function instead of just plain text?

pehaa

Hi,

You can add some html if you use the Text editor, just put it between
[toggle title="your title"][/toggle]
Thanks,

Hi, I have a problem with a.more-toggle (+ icon on the right side). Everytime I click on “x icon” to close the content panel. It returns to previous pane all the time.

For example, let’s say I have 3 main menus on the right which are home, services, teams. If the current pane is “services”, I click on ”+ icon” to see the content on the right side then click on “x icon” to close the content panel. It returns to “home” pane header. It should return to “services” pane header.

Could you point me where should I look at the problem?

Hi,

I found out only Chrome has this problem. if you can not find the problem, maybe you just point me where should I start to look at.

Hi,

Thank you so much for checking. I use Windows 7 ultimate and Chrome 32.0.1700.107 m version. And I created the Network site for my site.

I tested on other computers in Chrome and it is working well. No idea why only my Chrome has the problem.

I will re-install and re-set up my site again. It should be fine.

Thank you

Hi,

I am having two problems with the theme.

The logo looks crushed / pixelated even though the width is 288px as required. Also initially on the home page the logo was bigger than the side bar but subsequently became the same size. I am unable to see the icons! – This problem occurs especially when not logged in.

Hi, but do I use that without affecting the contact pane template. I need the map and the address but not the contact form generated by the theme. In its place I want the contact form 7 details to come in. How do I do that?

pehaa

Hi,

you can integrate the contact form 7 into your contact pane. Paste the contact form shortcode into the main content editor. In Theme Options > Contact check “Hide Contact Form” to dispable the built-in contact form.

Default-user

Thanks. I hope the contact form issue gets sorted out quickly.

Hi, this may have been answered, if so I apologise for asking again,

But is there a way of having just the side panel on the Recent Posts pane open on when you browse to that pane, whereas all the other panes remain closed?

thanks for your help

Aaron

pehaa

Hi Aaron,

There is an ‘Open automatically” metabox (the last one in the metabox area) for each Pane, so just check it for your Recent Posts pane and it will open automatically when you navigate to this pane.

Hi, I’m obviously being quite thick here! :-)

if I go onto the relevant pane, the metaboxes beneath the normal wordpress content window show: pane template option, heading etc and icon choice…but that’s where it ends, there’s no option for “Open automatically”

Am I missing something staring me in the face?, so sorry if I’m being dim!

Maybe you don’t have the latest theme update ? The current version is 1.2.2

Hi,

I have one question. What is the best to customize your theme? Right now, I just edit your templates without child theme.

Thanks

pehaa

Hi,

Thank you very much for purchasing Panes.

Definitely child theme, but…. there is something to be fixed, will add it in the update and you can modify your parent theme right now: Open library/faktory.php In lines: 127, 133 and 135 change FAKTORY_ST_URI to FAKTORY_URL, see http://cl.ly/image/0v303j0W2d42

Next, note that your child theme have to reproduce the parent file structure: http://cl.ly/image/2E0F081Y080m and in the main style.css file you’ll have: http://cl.ly/image/0L3G0M2O1a1p

Hello,

I have a question regarding to the pane type. Is it possible to add one more pane type such as gallery pane? Right now, there are 4 pane types which are Standard, Recent post, Showcase, Contact.

Many thanks

pehaa

Hello,

It’s a good point, thank you – but I don’t think adding a new pane type is necessary – you can use a standard pane and insert a gallery. We’d rather change the defalt gallery display to some more appealing one.

Pehaa, I am trying to set up the child theme. I have read through your comments and the entire thread that AlisonAshton submitted. I still cannot get the child theme to work for my website, http://runningclub.wpengine.com

Any ideas?

Default-user

Also, after doing the changes you put forth on the AlisonAshton thread (changing the FAKTORY_URL in the php and adding the child theme structure to be similar to the parent theme structure).... and now I am finding that my Panes aren’t working. Only the First and Second pane works. When I click on the others, like “Sponsors” and “Contact”, nothing happens. This was not like this yesterday. Please look at it at http://runningclub.wpengine.com

Should I reinstall the original theme that I downloaded?

Also, when do you expect to be releasing an update on this theme? Thanks.

Default-user

Update, after reinstalling the original theme, my site works again. I still have not been able to get the child theme to work, though.

Saw this comment with no resolution, have the same question (this is my last issue with the theme and will rate 5stars once this is solved!):

The auto-scroll effect with the panes when you click on a link in the main left navigation. It scrolls through all of the panes in-between until you reach the pane you clicked on in the nav. The site I am working on has 7 links, and when you are on the homepage, and click on the bottom link Contact Us, it scrolls through every single page and takes about 6 seconds until you reach the correct pane. Maybe there’s a way to speed up the effect so it doesn’t delay as long between the home page and bottom link? I would prefer to just disable the auto-scroll effect and have it directly open the pane when clicked on. Is there a way to do this? Sorry I’m not too familiar with javascript.

Hello. I notice that on a mobile device, the home screen that I land on is just a blank grey screen with the navigation. Is it possible for me to load an image in there? Or a “Welcome” or something? I just feel like people are going to land on my page via mobile and thing it’s broken, and I’d like to have my homepage message be the first thing that they see.

Love the theme, thanks in advance for your help. website is: http://runningclub.wpengine.com

Hello,

Thank you very much for purchasing Panes.

Your site is not running properly on mobile. Your first pane has a “showcase-pane” type, but there are no items and no showcase is displayed. It triggers a javascript error on mobile. Just change your pane type to “standard” and all should work correctly.

Hi Pehaa,

No, unfortunately, there is no possibility to insert videos into the slider.

Hi. Is there a social sharing plugin that you would recommend for use with Panes theme? My client is wanting to be able to share specific blog posts easily with her followers. Because of how Panes is set up, it doesn’t automatically go to a URL that the end user can just copy and paste into Facebook etc. Does this make sense?

Let me know if you have suggestions of well integrated plugins. Thanks.

Hi, PeHaa, You were so nice about answering questions regarding the theme, which I love. Thought you might like to see how we used it: http://contentkitchen.com/. Many thanks!

Default-user

Hi, pehaa,

Thanks so much. However, I’ve just noticed that the social sharing icons in the contact pane no longer link to the correct destinations (they did initially). (The social sharing icons in the left-hand nav appear to be fine.) I’ve double-checked the urls for them in the Theme Options, and they’re correct.

The site was recently automatically updated to WordPress 3.8.3—could that be the cause?

Any other advice to ensure the social sharing icons in the contact pane link to the right destinations?

Many thanks for your help with this!

pehaa

Hi Alison,

It’s not the update, it’s the “pin it” plugin that automatically creates a sort of an overlay on all images in, I guess, content part of the site. The same happens in your portfolio, you can just pin the thumbs but you can’t load the content by clicking on them.

To disable the “Pin it” on your social media icons and portfolio thumbs add in your Theme Options Panel > Style > Custom style:
.socialcontainer2 .pinit-overlay, .showcase .attachment-faktory-thumb-item+.pinit-overlay {display:none!important}
and the links should work properly.

Ah, thank you—fixed!

Hi. Pane is sweet. Thank you for developing it.

I have two questions… how are posts working on pane? Will they be paginated somehere? And how? Can I have a demo of it?

and for the shortcodes.. I think a tab shortcode is urgently missing here

Default-user

EDIT: this is the first theme I ever bought, that does not support special charakters like ä ö ü ß. Unusable for Germans.

pehaa

Hello,

Thank you for purchasing Panes.

The lack of support for special characters is a theme choice of fonts problem. In the next big update we’ll add a possibility to replace the fonts with other google fonts via the Options Panel. As for tabs – we’ll consider adding a tab shortcode. Panel is not a typical blogging theme and the posts display is limited – you always have the last post and can navigate next, prev.
