This design so clean – it literally made squeaky sounds while browsing it through my iPad…. good work!

Thanks MyOrange. I worked super hard making sure the mobile experience was as good as the desktop experience.

Squeak squeak! :)

How do i do the read more on posts?

mikedidthis

Hey oleg333,

Simply add [[MORE]] to the text area, where you want the ‘Read More’ anchor to appear. Works on all post types.

Many thanks

Simply amazing! Many thanks! Tho i have one problem: I set up my Instagram acc but it wont load. It’s always telling me “Loading”. I set the ID right and everything. Dunno what to do. Any help would be awesome! Thank you. :)

Cheers

mikedidthis

Hi fnmedia.

Glad you like the theme. I just added some test instagram settings to the demo site, and everything seems to be working fine.

Just to confirm: Instagram User ID should be all numbers: 1234567 Instagram Access Token should be numbers, letters and full stops: 1234567.674061d.a4dd32761db64a45bbfbdfb2ad0aeb0b

Can you confirm these are the settings you are using. If possible please link me to your tumblr URL, so I can debug.

Many Thanks

Mike

Firstly thank you for the awesome theme. It looks great.

However I came across a couple of problems that I would like to get some help with. (1) Just like fnmedia mentioned above, I set up my Instagram account to appear on the sidebar of the theme. I followed all the instructions that you have mentioned within the documentation. I put in my Instagram Access Token and also the Instagram User ID into their respective fields and I have also filled out all the other Instagram fields that are available in the Customization options. Despite this, when I open up the side bar, instead of displaying the photos, I mentions that the feed is “Loading” and continuously displays this. I would appreciate it if you could address this issue.

(2) The same problem that I mentioned in (1) seems to occur with the flickr option as well. I put in my Flickr User ID and filled out all related fields but just like in (1), the feed does not appear but it mentions the “Loading” text. I would appreciate help in this case as well.

(3) My header (tumblr title) text is two short words and I would like to have this appear on a single line instead of having it split into two lines. However the title gets split into two lines and I would like to have this problem rectified as well.

(4) When I check the Enable Like Post Heart option within the customization options, the Heart image does not appear as in your preview. Instead the following appears instead of the heart: “♥ ” I am not sure why so but I would like to get help with this as well.

I have no problems other than that and I would appreciate if I could have the above rectified. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank You,

mikedidthis

Hey JudeDias,

Glad you like the theme. I will try my best to answer your questions.

1) I just added some test Instagram feed settings to the demo site, and everything seems to be working fine. Just to confirm: Instagram User ID should be all numbers: 1234567 Instagram Access Token should be numbers, letters and full stops: 1234567.674061d.a4dd32761db64a45bbfbdfb2ad0aeb0b

2) Again, I have added a test Flickr feed settings to the demo site, and everything seems to be working fine. Just to confirm: Flickr User ID should be letters, numbers and @: 12345678@N01

3) Yep, makes sense. I believe if you decrease the value in the option ‘Logo Text Size’ until the logo fits on one line, your good to go. Its currently set at 28.

4) I would presume this is Tumblr’s Preview window messing up, and not theme related. However if you leave me your Tumblr URL, and enable the enable Like Post Heart, I shall debug this, and the feed problems.

Again many thanks for the purchase, and taking the time to report the issues. :)

Hello Again,

Thank you for the quick reply. I appreciate it. However:

(1) I erased all my customization and had the theme brought back to its default customization and once again filled up the necessary fields related to instagram as per your instruction. I filled out the Instagram User ID and the Instagram Access Token as per the required format and I don’t see any change with the results. It was the same as before and simply continues to display the words “Loading”. I will link you to a screen shot below.

(2) As mentioned in (1) I did the same with the related fields in concern to flickr and as with the Instagram feed, the results have not changed in this aspect as well. Simply continues to display the words “Loading”. (See Screenshot)

(3) I altered the “Logo Text Size” initially when I bought the theme and I did it once again after you have adviced me as well. When the theme is on Preview Mode, the size of the text alters when I alter the size of the text in the field. By default the size was 28 (if I remember correct) and I brought the size down to 25, 20 and eventually 10 as well. The size of the Title changes when the theme is viewable in its Customization/Preview mode but when viewing the Theme in its final viewable form, no change happens whatsoever to the size of the Title font.

(4) I have enabled the “Like Post Heart” option and will provide a screenshot showing what I mean below.

Hey Jude,

Not a problem, will prepare a response shortly. Super quick question, but what text editor did you use to open the theme file with?

I ask, as I think this maybe the issue regarding the heart.

Many Thanks

Hey Mike,

I used WordPad to open the themefile.

Regards,

mikedidthis

Hey Jude,

Could I ask a favour. Can you try opening the theme file with Notepad instead. Copy and paste the theme code as normal.

I have a feeling Wordpad is messing up the encoding of the html entity ?

Thanks

Hello Mike,

I replaced the HTML code after opening the Theme file using Notepad and as you predicted (4) has been solved.

The Heart now appears. But problems (1), (2) and (3) remain as it was before with no changes at all.

Hey Jude,

Thanks for that, I will add a note to the documentation. I am just working on the other issues now.

Just to let you know I have found the issue for both the Instagram / Flickr / Logo size, and am creating an update.

I will fire you a message once TF accepts it. If you want to get it before, send me a message to support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Again, super thanks for reporting the issue, and being polite about it. I try to test as many different set ups as possible, but really appreciate the patience.

Hi Mike,

Just a quick question. Is it possible to chance the order in an article?

I would like to show the text first – and thereafter the images.

Thanks for the great template! Felix

mikedidthis

Hey Felix.

Yes it is possible, but it would require some HTML changes that would be out of the scope of the theme.

However, I can create a support article detailing these changes. Please message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Lovely job Mike and typical that soon as I implement your Focus theme you bring out a cracking new template.

Ah well, I’d miss the social share on hover that Focus has. Unless I’m missing something.

Great job with Focus 1.9 Btw :)

mikedidthis

Hey mkl!

Thank you for the kind words. Social shares on Pierre are activated when you click the ‘1 shares’ link.

I am not a huge fan of social sharing in general, but I am happy with this solution. :)

Hey.

No problem at all. I used subtle social sharing under ‘0 shares’. Feel free to replace with what ever method you like.

Hi again Mike!

I’m experiencing some troubles adding photos with your theme: The sidebar just suddenly stopped working when I added a photo! I tried re-installing (that is, replacing the code completely), without any results. Am I doing something wrong here? My tumblr is http://markusth.tumblr.com/. Also, I think that the photo is way to big. Is it an easy way to change the way the photo is displayed on the site?

Thanks in advance! :)

mikedidthis

Hey Marjoth.

That is odd. It seems that a variable is missing, but I am not 100% sure why its being requested, so I will look into that.

In the mean time, you can either ‘Disable Img Replacement’ which will set all images at 500px wide, but sends that traffic for all screensizes, or if you can tell me how big you want the images to be, I can provide some Custom CSS.

Many Thanks

Mike

mikedidthis

Hey Marjoth.

Just to let you know, I have figured out what the issue is (its to do with the image not having a 1280px version available) and will issue an update in the morning.

Just to confirm, the replacement script will only super size images that have a 1280px image available. If one isn’t available, it will default to 500px.

If possible, could you email: support@mikedidthis.co.uk so I can issue you the update quickly, that way I can test and confirm before pushing to TF.

Many Thanks

Mike

Hey Mike,
I have a problem with the way your theme displays images.

Screenshot 1: http://i50.tinypic.com/34oalxy.jpg
Screenshot 2: http://i45.tinypic.com/34oa9o9.jpg

As you can see, the images are displayed at a fixed size and result in heavy pixelation whenever my window is stretched. All “Enable 0000px Media Query” and “Enable Image Replacement” are on by default. I thought it was a problem on my side, but after seeing your live view again, as well as other users’ tumblr here, I believe there is an error somewhere in the coding.
I also have your Focus theme, and the “tailored view” for that is perfect. I could resize my window to whatever size I want, and the image would become smaller or bigger without losing quality.

Thank you :)

mikedidthis

Hey Cesrpf.

Sorry to hear your having issues. From my side the demo script is replacing images as it should be. Images are only replaced on page load. For example if you load the page with a small window, and then expand the window, the images aren’t replaced and will look pixelated, as intended. Its actually the same script that Focus and all my themes use.

I maybe presuming, but I can’t imagine a user loading the site at 320px wide, and then enlarging the window to 1280px wide. Maybe the other way round, which would result in none pixelated images.

Could you like me to your Tumblr URL so I can take a closer look.

Many Thanks

Mike

mikedidthis

Hey Cesrpf.

Just to confirm, I did some improvements on the img replacement script. Pierre 1.1 is currently on its way to TF.

I will update the demo site as soon as its complete, again many thanks for getting in touch.

I am rewritting most the image replacement scripts, so expect something better in future updates.
