- Do you have a list of all widgets available, notably most read/most/lastest comments? - Full screen photos/backgroup do not work well with IE 11, they are jerky while scroll up/down.

We are aware of that problem, we’re working on a fix right now and will release it in the next update.

We don’t have a list of all of the widgets, the one that gets the posts is all just one large widget with a lot of customizability, we’ll try and figure out a great way to display them in our demo page. Thanks for the tip :)

Hi there,

Is it possible to rate with six stars in reviews instead of the five as in the demo?

BR, Lars

bluthemes_

No, we decided to make it consistent with Google rich snippets rating by using 5 stars.

Okay, I have a bunch of questions. I have purchased the theme and it suits all my needs. My question to you is:

1) Is there a way to NOT show the posts that show up on the featured post header anywhere else on the page? As in, if I have the featured post header showing posts from the tag “politics”, then is there a way to make sure that the same posts don’t show up elsewhere on the homepage? I don’t want to have repetition of content on the homepage.

2) Is there a way to change the chronology of the posts in the “featured post header”? As in, in the big featured post header format, it shows posts in the order 1,2,3,4,5 – wherein, post number 3 is the big post in the featured panel. I want the post number 3 to be substituted with post number 1. Is there a way to do that?

Sorry if my questions are too technical.

Thanks, Anshul

Hi,

1. You can create a tag called featured and assign that tag to the posts you want to show in the header and exclude posts with this tag in the Get Posts widget where ever you’re using it.

2. No this functionality is not included. The posts are ordered by creation date. I’ll note this down and take a look at it when I have time and if I find a simple way to do this I’ll add it in an update.

Hi folks, just a quick question

can you please take a look at post format – gallery post? Gallery is not showing up on mobile (android 4.2.. chrome beta and default android browser as well)

bluthemes_

Hey there, we figured out the problem, it was a weird CSS problem which I’m not sure why existed, we’ll fix it in the next update, in the meantime you can add this to your Theme Options -> Custom CSS field

.swiper-wrapper{ position: relative!important }

Great theme. I bought it almost im immediately when i saw it! :D Got couple questions for you.

First and most important, about the blu_get_posts shortcode in post – what files do i need to edit to get ability of list only one post by id? Is it using wordpress query or something like that? This is very important to me.

I also noticed that breadcrumbs on single post are not showing in chronologically.

Next thing. I noticed that visits are counted by custom custom post fields. After 3000 visits i can’t edit post without disabling custom post field metabox beacuse all posts are logged something like this:

blue_post_view ip address1 blue_post_view ip address2 blue_post_view ip address3

Could you fix this? Or maybe there is way to use google analytics? If not, i think that this setting would be faster:

blue_post_view ip address1,ip address2,ip address3

Last thing – sorting by popularity. This first sorting option – Popularity, is for all time popularity or one day? If all time, how can I add for one day?

Hope you didn’t get bored. Love this theme!

bluthemes_

Hey there, thanks for the kind words :)

It’s honestly a bit of a hassle to add functionality to the blu_get_posts shortcode, it’s a pretty hefty function and behind it is the ajax call and tracking of that, as well as the sorting functions. You can hardcode some options though but that’ll destroy the functionality. It’s located in particle/inc/custom-shortcodes.php.

The breadcrumbs are showing the hierarchy of the website itself, not the history of the users browsing if that’s what you mean.

I’ll take a look at the view problem, we are currently trying to optimize it because it doesn’t flow well with Caching plugins.

The first one is for all time, sorry if we didn’t make that clear enough. You could change it in custom-functions.php line ~ 190. You could add this line to the first if loop:

$args['date_query'] = array(array('after' => '1 day ago'));

This is untested, but it should work :)

Hi, how can I change the date format being displayed on the posts? From “days ago” I want to make it show the exact date.

bluthemes_

Hi,

There is no option to change this so you’ll have to get your hands dirty in some code :)

If you open the file inc/posts/post-layouts.php

You’ll see a line with the

<time>

tag, you’ll need to add some php code inside the tag to display the exact time, like
<?php echo get_the_date( 'd') . '. ' . get_the_date( 'M') . ' ' . get_the_date( 'Y') ; ?>
and then disable the timeago plugin by commenting out the line in theme.min.js with the
$(".timeago").timeago();
line

Hi, I am trying to use the email newsletter sign up widget by you but whenever someone inputs their email ID and hits the subscribe button, they get a message saying “no email provided”.

How do I get the email address input to work?

What a great theme! I was wondering if it’d be possible to include the ability to display social share buttons at the bottom of the post thumbnail,title,excerpt tiles? For example like you have at the bottom of http://www.bluthemes.com/themes/breeze/blog-three-columns where it says ‘Share Story’

I LOVE that functionality and it works great. But I love the rest of Particle. Any chance you could incorporate sharing buttons on the bottom of the Particle theme ‘get post’ tiles that appear on the homepage, category, etc.? That’d be a big help for social shares.

bluthemes_

It’s on my list and I’ll look into it when I have time. Thanks for the feedback :)

Random question: if I wanted to add in a ‘favorite’ or ‘bookmark’ functionality so it displays a little star or heart (like the ‘I Love It’ theme by cosmothemes), where might I look for the code to actually edit the excerpt and posts that display on the homepage?

bluthemes_

They seem to be using a customized functionality but a quick Google search gave me this plugin. You can add a favorite button with php code or a shortcode inside the post, take a look at the installation instructions. You can probably insert the code somewhere in particle/inc/posts/post-layout.php

Cool that works. Any idea how to get it to appear on the homepage as well? I have a homepage built using the Page Builder template and just can’t seem to find the right spot to insert the php shortcode. I’ve gotten it to display on the single post page and now just need it on the homepage. (if you could include ratings / bookmarking / favoriting posts in this theme that’d be amazing by the way.)

Any idea how to add the little bit of code to posts rendered using the Page Builder format?

bluthemes_

You’ll have to insert the php code, as shown in the installation page I mentioned, into the post-layouts.php file.

<?php if (function_exists('wpfp_link')) { wpfp_link(); } ?>

There are 3 different post layouts but they all use the same html so you might have to put the code in different places depending on what layout you use (grid, list, etc.)

If you have the grid or list layouts you could add it after the excerpt paragraph tag but that’s only if you have the excerpt enabled.

We didn’t exactly build the theme as a community centric theme with login/register pages and other things like that. If we’ll build a theme like that in the future we would definitely add functionality like this but we would build it from scratch and have it included so we wouldn’t have to rely on any plugin. This plugin is using an old function that is deprecated so I get an error so I don’t want to include it in the theme and building this functionality from scratch is just to much of a hassle.

Hi,

This is a great theme. Purchased at first sight. However, I couldn’t organize my home page as you have it on the Live Preview. Can you show me the way to do that? Any help file would be very good. my page : www.denizergurel.net

bluthemes_

Hi, this is copied from an answer on our support forum.

Create a page using the page builder as shown in the documentation that was included in the zip archive you downloaded from ThemeForest.

Navigate to Settings > Reading and select static for Front page displays and select the page you created in the select box.

Now you can navigate to Appearance > Widgets and add widgets to the Home top and the Home Sidebar widget areas.

Let me know if you need more help, preferably on our forum. Thanks :)

Hi, this theme looks great however Im still a bit confused between the Get Posts Widget and the Page Builder (do they serve the same purpose?)

My question is about the Popular Posts you have on your Demo Homepage. How did you add these on the 2/3 of the site width ?

Best regards

Actually I just found out how to do it, so no worries. I have another question though.

In the big slider on top, I would like to use just 3 posts (and not 6 or 9 or 12). Is it possible to have the swipe hand disabled and instead have all the image clickable ? Cause now someone has to go to the title post to click, and the swipe hand is practically useless if using 3 posts in the slider.

Best regards

bluthemes_

The page builder and the Get Post widget do the same thing but the page builder allows you to build different layouts per page. It’s like every page would have its own unique widget positions that you could drag a widget into.

I’m looking into disabling the slider if there are only 3 posts to show, it didn’t occur to me to do that at the time of development but it’s obvious now :)

Hi,

I just bought the theme. there is a chance to get the settings and configuration use in your demo? I imported the files .xml and .wie but still does not look like in the demo.

Thnaks.

Hi, I just created this simple screen cast to show how to build a page like the front page on the demo. A few other customers were having problems doing this as well.

Hi, this is a suggestion for a future update:

In the top slider area, if the image used is not dark the text (category and post title) are not that easy to read. A horizontal stripe that occupies the text area and uses exposure would solve this problem.

Hi, we’ll take a look at this for a future update for sure. Thanks for the feedback!

A few questions before buying:

- Can the post be set with sidebar left, with 1/3, content righ 2/3 (to get enough room to put a 336×280 add in the left) - In the post, remove the author box of the left? - Compatible with Jetpack comments?

Best regards.

bluthemes_

Yes you can choose to have the sidebar on the left or right, the width is 340px in a large display so your ad will fit well there but it decreases to 273px if the user has a device with a window size that is less the 1200px, If you have just a simple image it will scale down well. We also have a google ads widget that loads the right size of ad depending on the window width.

You can remove the author box from the side.

I haven’t tested JetPack comments yet but I see no reason why it won’t work and if it doesn’t we’ll just fix it, it’s such a popular plugin it will only benefit the theme. However the image tagging won’t work with the plugin.
