I fail again :P

1. How do I get the twitter Widget to work? Entering my twitter username under “Nick” field does nothing.

2. To get a blog page: I put all my blog posts under a “Blog” category, like you said, and linked the category to the menu. But it did not work. When you click the Blog menu item, it shows only a single blog post. See it at http://www.danielspellman.com

Hello,

1. please update your template. There has been solved the problem with twitter in the newest v1.5.

2. don´t put there the link to the post but to the category.

hi guys – i logged on to get the twitter widget update for the site – but notice now the template is at version 1.5

My version is 1.3 – how difficult is it to upgrade from 1.3 – is it just a case of copying up the files overwriting all??

Don’t want to mess up the website – let me know pls (as I seen a folder in the latest download 1.4 to 1.5 upgrade but I use 1.3)

Thanks!

Hello,

if you only need to solve the twitter issue but otherwise you are satisfied with your template you can only overwrite /widgets/jawtwitter.php file with the new one.

If you want to completely upgrade your template please backup your database and data first.

Then rename the current folder with Paula (paula_old) and install a new version.

Hey, I’ve updated and twitter is working. Hoever, regarding the blog page:

My menu is not linking to a blog post, it’s linking to the CATEGORY “Blog” which currently has three posts. If you go to www.danielspellman.com and mouseover the BLOG menu item, you’ll see the link is for ”.../category/blog”. Yet when you actually CLICK , for some reason it takes you to that single post.

Take a look at this screenshot of my dashboard: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0ByNWwLc_vBw1Zzc1aHJNUWd6cVk As you can see, my menu link is for the category. But it’s not working. Is this a bug?

Cheers Dan

Hello,

could you send us your Wordpress access please? It seems to be an error unrelated to our template, however we are going to fix it for you.

Also, interesting note..

If you click the “Blog” category link under the Latest Posts feed, it STILL takes you only to that one “bloggything” post!

Yay you fixed it!! Whatever you did haha. Thankyou.

Another question. -I can’t get lightboxes to display in some galleries. Adding lightbox=’true’ to the shortcode does not seem to work? Eg this shortcode:

[portfolio column=”3” cat=”editorial’’ height=”320” title=”true” lightbox=’true’ desc=”true” more=”false” moretext=”” group=”false” ids=”” order=”ASC” orderby=”“]

leads to this page: http://www.danielspellman.com/testing-page-2/

How do I get lightboxes for this gallery? Also, is it possible to display ONLY the description in portfolio items and NOT the title? Whenever I say “title=false”, the description turns off as well, even if I have it set as true.

Thankyou!! :)

Hi, we have reset your shortcode so now it should be ok.

Hello I’ve been trying to get this theme to work for a couple of days now. The problem is: the thumb slider is not working properly and is also causing major page load times. Now, Im by no means an expert, but I believe the thumb slider is causing the problem. Let me first explain what the slider is doing (the slideshow below the actual slider): It shows the thumbnails as it should, but when it reaches the last thumbnail in the queue, it stops showing anything. After the last thumbnail, there is only white. Only way to fix it is to reload the page and let the slideshow begin from the beginning.

Here is what the Chrome console says: Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 (Bad Request) /wp-content/themes/paula/scripts/timthumb.php?src=&h=100&w=162&zc=1

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 (Bad Request) /wp-content/themes/paula/scripts/timthumb.php?src=&h=100&w=162&zc=1&f=2

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 (Bad Request) /wp-content/themes/paula/scripts/timthumb.php?src=&w=594&zc=1

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 (Bad Request) /wp-content/themes/paula/scripts/timthumb.php?src=&w=594&h=350&zc=1

Not only is the webpage slow but also the admin page. Everything takes around 5 seconds to load.

Any thoughts?

Hello,

please check your images in slider. You have to insert them as featured items. If the problem still persists send us your Wordpress access please (to jaw[a]jawtemplates.com).

Update (Can’t edit): It seems like the long load times went away. No idea what cured it. Other domains on my hosting account were loading just fine when the website in question was very slow.

Anyway, I’d like to get some suggestions how to fix the slider. I can’t open my website with a messed up slider.

Hi. Sorry to bother again. But I have a big issue with the theme. It would seem something is causing the server to overload when the Paula theme is activated. This started to happen exactly when I switched to this theme from my old one. I contacted my web host and a level 2 support guy said the theme Im using is very heavy to load. He also said I should try to disable the timthumb script and see if that helps. Now, how can I disable that script with out completely messing up the theme? At the moment, I have my website open on one tab and my cpanel on the other tab. I know for a fact that Im the only one visiting the website at that moment. When I click refresh my website and then go check the server resource monitor page, it shows this:

http://i48.tinypic.com/2di0w2r.png

As soon as the website is loaded up, all the running processes go to zero. I did install a caching plugin but it seems to offer little help.

Sorry again for bothering yet again with my problems.

jawtemplates

Hello,

we are sorry to hear that you are having that problem. It has been caused by Timthumb component which is demanding on system resources, however we didn´t meet such problem with hosting as you wrote yet. We can recommend you to choose a different hosting or try to increase the performance limit on your hosting.

Fantastic, light boxes are working now plus descriptions are there in the Lightboxes! Awesome. But when I tr to turn titles off, the descriptions get turned off too. Is this supposed to happen? It’s not a big deal as I suppose I could just delete all the portfolio item titles, just hoping I wouldn’t need them later…

jawtemplates

Hello,

we see that you already solved the problem with titles/descriptions. To the NEXT /BACK issue you mentioned in the last comment: we are sorry it has been caused by a little bug. If your admin access which you sent us earlier is valid we will fix it for you.

Okay I’m getting seriously confused with how these shortcodes work! Because I liked the gallery shortcode for the Testing 2 page I made, I’m copying and pasting that to the real galleries and just changing the categories in the shortcode. Yet this shortcode: [portfolio column=”3” cat=”editorial’’ height=”320” title=”true” desc=”true” more=”false” group=”false” order=”ASC”]

Creates a page that displays ALL portfolio items, even though I’ve told it only to display editorial? What do I do? THe page is this one: http://www.danielspellman.com/editorial/#prettyPhoto

Hello,

please try to rewrite the quotation marks/apostrophes. They should be perpendicular. The marks usually go wrong when you copy them via clipboard.

Also, clicking NEXT or BACK on the image when the lightbox is up just causes the same image to reload.

Hello. First this theme is a bit over the top when it comes to workflow and has a little to tedious administration.

However i have come to learn a little how it all works but not all and i wonder how do you get that RSS button on the “Feature right” column.

The documentation is really not very helpful.

Thanks

Whenever I have the theme activated I can not drag the widgets to where I want them. It’s like its been disabled, however when I activate a different theme it starts working normally again. What can I do to fix this?

jawtemplates

Hello,

there seems to be a problem with some plugin. Could you send us your Wordpress access please?

This theme is driving crazy!! I cant even make a blog page – Arrgh

I’m this close ‘holds up two fingers very close to each other’ to abandoning this theme! It’s just one big freaking headache! My webhost keeps telling me I need to fix the theme, because it’s eating too many resources and thus some times even crashing the server. Now, I have spent the last 3 days trying to figure out what is wrong with it but can’t find a solution. The problem is the theme! When I switch to any other theme, the problem vanishes. Even when I disable all the plugins, it still causes problems.

Now, can you AT LEAST give some idea as to what in this theme could be eating all the resources? It isn’t normal, that when one person (1, ONE ) refreshes a page, I suddenly get 7/20 entry processes, 10% memory usage and some times the CPU levels jump between 25% and 100%. Yesterday alone, my entry processes were limited 75 times! My CPU and memory usages have been limited too by the web host.

$40 well spent!
