Looks great! (: Any way to use this as HTML theme?

Hey!

Thanks. Sadly at this time, ‘Pierre’ is Tumblr only.

Many Thanks

hi, i just downloaded it but tumblr customization page says me there is an update! Is version 1.1 the last one?

Thanks

mikedidthis

Hi.

Yes 1.1 is the latest version, which I presume you have.

The message will pop up if you remove the theme credits (which contains the version number) from the sidebar. This is fine, but its best to disable the ‘Enable Version Check’ option, to stop the theme checking for a version number.

Let me know how you get on.

Many thanks

Brilliant job! I’ve got a couple of suggestions/fixes.

Four Square -> Foursquare Disqus related error with embed.js when not viewing a specific post. This is what I did. https://gist.github.com/4374402

Cheers!

mikedidthis

Hey Souldier.

Glad you like the theme. I am unaware of the issue though. Greatful for the fix, but can you explain to me what the problem was?

Many Thanks

Hey Mike,

If you go to http://mikedidthis-pierre.tumblr.com/ you’ll see the following error https://gist.github.com/4384741 if loading the Disqus embed.js. The only pages that should have the Disqus embed script should be in the actual post page/permalink.

mikedidthis

Hey Souldier.

Thanks for the heads up. I get a little confused with Disqus. This is how I would fix it: https://gist.github.com/4387707

Basically that just prints the Disqus comment box JS on the Permalink Page.

I will add this into all the themes when they get update.

Many thanks for reporting the issue! :)

I’ve been using your Notes theme for ages but this one was so good I had to replace Notes with Pierre. It’s installed now and looks lovely; nice work as always.

mikedidthis

Hey Nemphtis.

Ahh that’s a great comment. I am glad you like the theme!

Merry Christmas!

Hello, I just bought the theme and I have a few questions:

1. Is there a way to add a line under the titles for all types of posts? If not, is it possible to move up the “details” closer to the title?

Example: http://i.imgur.com/iNacx.png

Example 2: http://i.imgur.com/ECOsC.png

2. Is it possible to add a hyphen after the date, so that ”# Shares” is separate? I tried to do some tinkering, but the change isn’t permanent.

Example: http://i.imgur.com/CZEiT.png

3. It seems like users will have to scroll up to the top of the page to click the sidebar tab. Any way to have the tab follow down the page as someone scrolls? Doesn’t seem likely, so it’s not a big deal if nothing can be done.

Apologies if these questions are out of line. First time theme-buyer here.

mikedidthis

Hey bchopstick.

Firstly, don’t worry about the questions, more than happy to help.

1) If you add the following to the Custom CSS box, you can add a line to the details:
.details ul {
border-top:1px solid black
}
2) If you add the following to your Custom CSS box, it will change the divider to a hypen:
.details ul li.comments::before, .addthis_default_style::before {
content: '-';
display: inline-block;
background: transparent;
color:black;
-webkit-border-radius: 0px;
-moz-border-radius: 0px;
border-radius: 0px;
width: auto;
height:auto;
margin: 0 3px 0px 4px;
}

3) Sadly not. I originally wanted it to work this way for Desktop users, but due to how the sidebar is positioned, I couldn’t fix the trigger.

However, I will add this feature in the next update, using a fake trigger button. It will be an option.

Hope that helps, anything else, feel free to send a message to: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Many Thanks

Additionally, is there a way to keep an uploaded background in “fixed” position instead of repeated?

mikedidthis

Hey IPM.

Thank you, I am super pleased that Pierre has gone down so well!

Just replace mikedidthis with your username.

Hello Mike,

Thanks for your hard work. I’m enjoying your theme.

Couple of questions.

- Currently, the sidebar is 260px wide. I would like to shrink it down to about 200px wide. How do I go about doing that? I tried changing css values but it doesn’t seem to work.

- I like the slide over effect, but I would also like to know if there any way the sidebar can be made to remain visible and static?

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

mikedidthis

Hey Kiraneg,

No need to thank me, its a pleasure :)

Responses:

1) Yes this is possible, info here: https://mikedidthis.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/911849-change-sidebar-width-slidebar-only-

2) At the moment this isn’t possible, as there are a few things to consider due to the responsive nature of the theme. I am happy to say that its a feature I shall include in the next update to Pierre.

Many Thanks, anything else, hit up: support@mikedidthis.co.uk

Hi Mike

This might be beyond the scope of the support but I’d like to use the facebook social comments plugin but I’m scratching my head as to where to add the html into the theme.

The javascript is straightforward enough but the html has me fazed.

Regards, Mark

mikedidthis

Hey Mark.

Sure if you can fire a message to: support@mikedidthis.co.uk with the HTML embed instructions I will create a support article detailing the steps to add facebook comments.

I have no facebook account :)

Your advice worked a treat :) Although I haven’t implemented yet because FB’s own plugin isn’t responsive. Maybe they should hire you ;)

I’ve bought Pierre and Focus. Mike’s themes and his customer service are top notch.

Great price, great theme and great service. 5 stars all the way.

I love this theme! Before I purchase, can you tell me how easy is it to change the default width of images? I know layout is adaptive but is it possible to pick a bigger minimum width than what is set in the live demo?

Thanks.

mikedidthis

Hey.

It sure is! You can change pretty much anything on the theme using Custom CSS in the Tumblr Customisation Dashboard.

If you fire a message to: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I will create the support article detailing the steps.

Hello Mike,

I’ve a feeling that this might be a rather silly question however this morning when I tried to pull out the sidebar of the theme it wouldn’t work and so I decided to pop into the customization window to check if there was something wrong and a window popped up saying that there’s an update to the file. My (probably silly) question is how do I download the updated file? Do I have to purchase the theme all over again or if I re-download the theme from the “Downloads” section of my account- will I get the updated version of the theme?

Thank You

mikedidthis

Hey Jude,

Never a silly question! :)

Yes, just re-download the file again from the ‘Downloads’ section and it will contain the updated theme.

Install like you did the first time around, and your good to go!

Any issues, let me know.

Many Thanks

Hello,

I wanted to know if there’s an option to not show the caption when viewing a photo in the lightbox. I didnt notice one, but you have so many options I could have possibly overlooked it :)

mikedidthis

Hey!

Yes, Pierre does have a lot of options. Sadly there isn’t one to turn captions off on the lightbox.

However its a pretty easy template change. If you email: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I will get a support article created detailing the steps to do this.

Many Thanks

Where do the Ad Sense ad’s show up on the theme? I don’t see it in the example.

How would you add different ad units then you have set up?

mikedidthis

Hey anoopkansupada.

Adsense support is for the sidebar only, and supports a 200×200 advert slot only. It is possible to change these by editing the themes HTML.

There isn’t an example, as I am still waiting on being accepted to the adsense program.

Many Thanks

It’s been almost a month since I’ve been using this theme and I gotta say, I really love it. The amount of customization options in “Pierre” greatly over-numbers the ones found in Tumblr’s “Premium” themes. Great theme, worth the purchase.

Thanks a lot Mike for the work and support.

mikedidthis

Hey bchopstick!

Ahh thank you! I really appreciate the message, thank you for letting me know how your getting on with ‘Pierre’.

Take care,

Wonderful theme, is there any possibility that this could be made to have infinite scroll?

mikedidthis

Hey,

Thank you. You can easily add infinite scroll to any theme following these steps: http://codysherman.com/tools/infinite-scrolling

I may add a solution similar to Mason (URL tracking and working back button) in the next update to Pierre.

Many thanks

Another killer theme. Seriously this is your best work yet. Love what you did with the photo sets. Perfect.

Only thing is I’d REALLY love the ability to create sticky posts. Any way to accomplish this? I’ve read about sticky posts before but seems like must be coded into the theme itself?

mikedidthis

Hey!

Thank you, I am really glad you like Pierre, it was a lot of fun to make, and lots of pieces will get ported to other themes.

Ahh ‘Sticky’ posts. I actually think I have a way to ‘fake’ a sticky post. Look out for 1.3 as it will be included!

Many Thanks

Mike
