Hello and good day,
First and foremost, I immensely enjoy the theme and believe your team has done an outstanding job of keeping the theme very clean; with that said I have been attempting to customize a few areas to suit my needs.
I have added the RSS multi importer feed plugin to my site and would like to make the RSS auto blog post feed my permanent blog page. I have not been able to link the two pages together where the post shows up on the current blog page that now has been renamed to Latest News. I have been able to successfully validate the feed source however I cannot display the content nor place it onto the blog page.
If you can provide instructions on completing this task it would be greatly appreciated.
Good day again,
Additionally, I have 2 other questions that appear to be answered in your previous editions however I did not find the same code in the areas that you referenced in the current version.
1. I would also like to have the social icons open into a new tab or window so users can remain on my site.
2. I would also like to photo to have the ability to expand when someone clicks on the photo.
Hey, thanks for purchasing!
For your first issue – I’m afraid this is a third-party plugin, so can’t assist with that. We would if it was a solution on first sight but it’s not.
For the second issue, in the file section-about.php lines 45 and 49 you just need to find the a tag and add a target, like this: ”<a target=”_blank” ...”
For the third issue issue with the photo – please send us a link to a bigger photo so we can send you the code for this.
My Linkedin account below has a larger photo that can be used to facilitate the photo request.
In your theme folder, open footer.php and at the end, just before ” </body></html> ” enter this script:
jQuery(’.circle’).css( ‘cursor’, ‘pointer’ );
I appreciate the timely response however after adding the script into the footer page, the photo does not reflect any changes at all, additionally the curser does not change as well. I have I been able to click on your reference source link above however, the script is not working inside the footer based upon your instructions.
Thank you in advance.
ThemeForest formatting ruined the script, sorry. Please copy paste this:
jQuery('.circle').css( 'cursor', 'pointer' );
AWESOME !!! EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR !!! IT’S MUCH APPRECIATED !!!
Hey, good to hear!
Hello I am having an issue with editing email for receiving messages via contact form on the front page at the bottom. Editing my custom email in the Wordpress administration via Themes – Adjust – Contact info does not help, I still receive no emails. Should I edit css files or how can I make it send emails to my custom email?
Hi, could you send us your website email so we can check out if everything’s okay with the form code?
My name has 10 characters. This makes the horizontal line break in the page header appear slightly over my name on the left and on the right (line appears over 1st character and last character). How can this be fixed? Thank you.
Hi, thanks for purchasing.
The setting is in Appearance -> Customizer -> Header section, under “Horizontal line width”. You just decrease the number…
That was easy… thanks!
I would like purchase your theme but I have a question. I see that you answer all the questions very well here. It is great. But It seems like your last update was on 23/10/2014 (v.1.3.5). It is a long time, nearly a year. Don’t you have any plan to update this theme anymore? I think it is important if developer keeps updating, even it is once every couple of months.
Hi, the theme works well and we don’t have many new additions planned. If it goes wrong for some reason, we’re here to update it and fix it of course.
This is a wonderful theme, it fits perfectly of what I was looking for. However, I am receiving an error msg under my portfolio section. “The image number #1 could not be loaded” was the error msg. It was working before until the update. I have tried to re-upload the thumbnail picture many times, but it’s still not working. Please help. Thank you
Hey, thanks for purchasing! Could you link us to your website please? Did you try deleting the whole post and posting again?
Hi, Yes I have tried to delete and re-post again, but it’s still showing the same error. Below is the link to my website:
Hey, I don’t see any error messages on your website currently? Did you manage to fix it or you temporarily removed it? We need to be able to see the actual error to be able to help…
Yes I have tried to delete and re-post again, but it’s still showing the same error. Below is the link to my website:
Hi I have fixed the error. Thank you
I am having issues receiving messages to the mail I assigned to your contact form on the footer. No matter what email address I set, the messages dont arrive.
I need help please, Thank you.
my website email is firstname.lastname@example.org ... thank you
Hi, thanks for purchasing!
Please contact your web host and ask them to enable the PHPMail() function.
If that’s not the issue, please check your spam folder. If the messages are in there just mark them as safe.
My question has to do with adding a thumbnail picture to a blog post. It seems to me that the theme is missing the ‘add a future image to a post’ section.
I read in some forums that this section can be added by pasting a line of code into the functions.php but when I tried it dint work.
Thanks for any help!
We tried to keep the home page as minimalistic as possible, so we left that feature out. We’ll considering adding this in the next update.
How to change the color of the texts in the content of the posts? In Customize—Colors, I found no such setting.
Hey, sorry for the late reply.
Are you talking about the blog posts and how to change the colors in them? That should be doable with the basic Wordpress editor…
I tried to add a custom link to the menu, but it did not appear in the menu bar. Can you help me to solve this problem?
This is my address: chongchonghe.com
I want to add a menu which links to the Research section. It is a new section with an id #post-102.
Were you able to edit any of the menu items? Are you using the build-in Wordpress Menu editor in “Appearance -> Menus”?
Yes, I am. I was able to edit any default menu items, but not the new section.
Hi, did you change the type of menu in the Customizer?
As written in the documentation: “To choose the type of menu, go to your WP admin panel -> Appearance -> Customizer and in the Navigation section of the options, you can choose between Automatic Menu and Custom Header Menu”
You need to set the Custom Header Menu as your option.
If this isn’t it – we’ll have to replicate the issue to see if there’s anything wrong, but I think this should solve it.
Relevant part in the documentation: http://pixeldizajn.com/documentation/#editing-the-menu-31
This is helpful; the problem is solved. Thanks!
No plans currently on changing the menu as many people like it as it is, but I’ll add your suggestion to our list.
I love the theme. It helped my build an amazing resume. I am still working on a few sections but I did have some problems with the education section. In the subtitle I want to insert a line break html code and for some reason it wont work. Also one recommendation you should add is location for experience and education. My website is drogov.com.
As custom fields (that are used for the subtitle) strip down any HTML, this isn’t possible. We’ll try to find a way, but don’t think it’s possible without custom coding or hard coding.
I just purchased your PerfectCV
How do I add the .pdf button. I saw an example on this page under “Extras” which seems to be a new section: http://www.sergiopenteado.com.br/
I’ve used the print button you supply, but it does not look like the web page.
I’ve tried printfriendly and pdfmyurl.com but I cannot get a .pdf file
Hey Harold, thanks for purchasing!
The link you posted seems to have a custom PDF button.
PerfectCV has CSS that makes the page print ready. If you go to File -> Print in your browser, you can see how that looks.
You can save that as a PDF instead of printing it, upload that to your server and link a download PDF button to that file.
As for printing the page exactly how it looks, that never works out because of how complex the HTML is – unless you make a PDF out of a screenshot.
Might be worth looking into some WP plugins, but we don’t have any to recommend at the moment.
I’m unable to change the horizontal line width in the header (the lines around the name at the top) I changed it from 30 to 20 and it still shows as 30 (and thus overlapped my name). I made sure I clicked save and publish. I checked the result on chrome and firefox. Same result. All plugins and wordpress is up to date.
I also can’t change the picture, remove rss button, use smaller e-mail font, and decrease “time period box” size.
