Hello!

I installed the theme ad I love it! I just have a couple of questions to make everything perfect!

1 – How can I change the code to make the social links open in a new window?

2 – Can I make it so that the dates for employment always appear in a single line? For example if I write Nov 2008 – Aug 2012 it uses 2 lines, so can I make the font smaller so it fits automatically in one line? Is there a code I can add which would reduce the font automatically?

3 – Is there a way I can remove the long blank space under the contact form? I would like for the scrolling to stop right after the contact form.

Thanks!

Hi,

1 – You would just need to edit the hometpl.php file, inside the div with the class of “soc”, add target=”_blank” to the a element.

2 – There’s an option for this: Customizer >> Experience >> Decrease “time period box” size

3 – Without that blank space the scroll bar will not go far enough towards the contact form. But you can remove it by decreasing the margin-bottom property for .container class.

Let us know if you happen to need anything else.

Thank you! There is one last thing please. When I click on the links up top, it does not arrive at the right place on the page.It’s always a little lower than the beginning of the category and I have to scroll up to see the category name. My website: http://www.piotrrajca.com

Thank you so much for your time,

Hey,

Seems to working fine for us. What device and browser are you experience this issue in?

Greetings

Do you have instructions how to create an “Additional Field” link (within the customizable Contact Info section)?

For instance, the default content right now has icons and text for my phone number and email address. I want to add a link below that that points to my resume file. I’m unclear if I can simply create html code within the field or if there is a second step somewhere.

Hi, thanks for purchasing.

At the moment we don’t have a back end option for adding extra fields there. You would have to edit the hometpl.php file manually. Inside a div with the class of “info” there’s an unordered list in which you can add more elements.

Let us know if you happen to need anything else.

I’m comfortable editing php files (when I know what I’m doing). This leads to three customizations and seeking your help which files (and where in those files) I’m supposed to edit:

1. How to add text to the right-side of the “about me” section per the above? The hometpl.php file seems like the wrong place. It doesn’t have what you imply it has.

2. How to edit the footer to both remove the extra white space at the bottom of the page and to add a single line of text for a copyright?

3. How to add a CAPTCHA or similar to the contact form, as I’m already receiving spam responses?

pixeldizajn

Hi,

1. hometpl.php is the main home page template that connects the rest of the elements via the include function (you will see other php files listed there). So you would need the section-about.php file to customize that.

2. Like we explained before, you need to edit that class in the styles.css file, and the text can be added in footer.php inside the <footer> element.

3. We used the “honeypot” technique against spam. Our email is set by default in this theme, and considering the amount of installations we’re not getting a lot of spam at all. If you add a Captcha, that wouldn’t help a lot, we actually had worse results with that than with this technique. It would be really hard to add this too, but if you decide to do that and know how, the relevant function is ajaxSubmit() in the js/pcv.js file.

Hello! I purchased this theme and love it. The only part I can’t seem to get working is that when “More Posts” is clicked for the blog, it goes to a 404 not found page. I changed the “uncategorized” category simply to “blog” and my posts are marked category-wise as both “blog” and “featured.” The featured posts show up on the main page just fine…it’s the “more posts” area that’s resulting in 404. What can I do to fix that please?

Hi, thanks for purchasing.

Could you send us a link to your website? Here or Email please.

Have you published a blank Blog page and set it as a Blog page in Settings -> Reading?

What’s odd is now it seems to work. I didn’t publish a blank blog page or set it as a blog page in Settings->Reading. Since it seems to be working now, should I still do this or should I leave it alone? Site is www.scotrobnett.com. Thank you!

pixeldizajn

Hey,

Since it’s working you don’t have to set that up… but if happens to cause issues again please try that solution first.

Love the theme! couple questions: My url – http://kevinbw.com

-When I upload an image for the background, it just sits in the top left (or center or right) instead of actually being used for the entire width of the background. How do I fix this?

-I like the font & size of the about me section as I have it. I made some changes to the font size, and now it’s black and a good size. However, in the experience section (or education), I can’t seem to manipulate the size or the font type to match the about me section. How do I do this?

Thanks, Kevin

Hi, we weren’t able to identify anything, so can you please email us the admin access to kontakt@pixeldizajn.com – safest way?

Hi,

For your first issue, we can’t seem to reproduce the issue. What browser are you using and what is your monitor resolution?

For the second issue, you weren’t using p tags in the text. Documentation reference: http://pixeldizajn.com/documentation/#docs-internal-guid-25dfb981-f11c-f507-154d-601625c3756b

Here’s a bit bigger explanation:

In Education and Experience posts please delete <span style=”font-size: 1; color: #000000;”>.

You can change fonts and colors via Appearance > Customize > Colors and Appearance > Customize > Fonts.

If you want a font that’s not included on Google fonts, insert the font via HTML and CSS and then using Appearance -> Editor -> Style.css use this code: http://pastebin.com/H9FrAyc3

Hi, love the theme, have some questions though :)
1. What exactly is the child theme zip for?
2. your suggestion “edit the hometpl.php file, inside the div with the class of “soc”, add target=”_blank” to the a element.” for Social Media to open in a new tab does not work for me
3. is there any way to use similar icons beneath the phone/adress/mail icons from the same database and how would i include them without saving them to png? – i would like a speech bubble icon for my spoken languages ..
4. I would like to create a bilingual cv German and English – how do I start and are there pre-installed language icons/buttons I can activate?

Hi, good to hear about the lightbox. As for the website URL that you sent us – it redirects us to a different website – “Er… Analy..” that’s not using PerfectCV. Did you send us the correct URL?

Default-user

I’m sorry, I resent my mail with the correct URL

Hi,

To solve the icon issue you have to add padding on your span.icon-commentpcv, like the following:

1.) line 118, change with: <span class=”icon-commentpcv” style=”font-size: 18px; padding-left: 4px”></span>

2.) line 122, change with: <span class=”icon-commentpcv” style=”font-size: 18px; padding-left: 4px”></span>

Purchased theme. Latest version, there seems to be issue when I print the CV from browser, or save as a PDF. The contact details sections aren’t showing up, Just a large white space, example here http://screencast.com/t/4ZfWXaTxRFx

I think I figured this out. Chrome and Mozilla, work fine, Safari is the issue. The contact area is blank. Try that

It happens when I go to PRINT or SAVE as pdf. As show in my screen capture. It’s duplicatable in Safari browser on my end.

pixeldizajn

Hi,

The Safari browser isn’t picking up the print stylesheet at all, we have looked into this in the past but we weren’t able to find a solution. We’ll look into this more, but no guarantees we’ll be able to make it work…
