Hi Ed Is there a way to add a faint background colour to Side Bars 1…8 And possibly different background colours for different sidebars (that’s not essential though)

Also – Is there a way to have a divide line run vertically to help delineate a page body from the sider bar body

Many thanks

SwiftIdeas

Just seen your recent comment, glad you found that! :)

Hi My fault – I can now see the vertical divider line for the sidebar. Though ‘tinting’ the sidebar a different colour would be handy :-)

SwiftIdeas

Will consider it for the future!

Hi, i am trying to change the width of the navigation menu items so there is less padding/margin so they all fit on one line and i can’t work out where in the code to change, have tried a few and am not having any luck.

Yeah i just made the names of the links shorter, but that isn’t a viable option, just a temp solution, is it possible to do what i said above?

SwiftIdeas

header.php, change line 360 to:

<nav id="main-navigation" class="fourteen columns alpha">

and line 397 to:

<div id="menubar-controls" class="two columns omega">

Hope that helps.

I am working on the rev slider. I was looking at yours and some other examples. Are you using PNG’s for the text as well. Or did you create custom CSS for the text. If so, is that provided with the theme.

SwiftIdeas

We just added some custom css to the existing caption styles, here is a link to the contents of our file: http://pastie.org/6324486

Dear,

I’m trying to work with the Swift Page Builder, but I notice that each time I update a page, the content I just created is showing.

But…

When I go back to the Swift Page Builder, the editor says its empty and if I like to add a new element. Looking into the classic editor I do see the created code but I can;t edit it in the swift page builder because this says its empty. Please advice asap, thank you!

Cheers, RJ

SwiftIdeas

Hi RJ,

Are you switching between the page builder and classic editor and adding content to the classic editor? If so, this i likely what’s causing your issue. If anything in the classic editor is invalid to what the page builder expects then it won’t know how to interpret it.

Dear Ed, This is not the case. I dont make any changes or switch between the classic editor. The problem occurs as soon as I Publish or Update my page.

Please advice.

Cheers, RJ

Hi Ed,

could you please tell me what size is best to make for the background? I have a drawing that I want in the background. Thank you, Tasha

SwiftIdeas

Is this for the page background? If so, then it’s up to you as essentially it depends on the resolutions you wish to support. Ideally, as large as possible.

In your demos, porfolio pages have urls that are like this:

http://themes.swiftpsd.com/pinpoint/example-two/?portfolio=cibando-2 Are we able to make them seo friendly URLs? Like: http://themes.swiftpsd.com/pinpoint/example-two/cibano-2

You could try something like this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-type-permalinks/

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I tried that, then it goes to 404 page not found page….

SwiftIdeas

Hmm.. I’ve not personally used that plugin before.. What do you have your permalinks set to in the Settings > Permalinks (Within the main WordPress options)?

- Ed

Default-user
klewan Purchased

Its set to post-name.. Wordpress actually has this function by default. But it was not allowing it on portfolio posts. When I installed that plugin that you suggested, I was able to edit the portfolio urls, but now it goes to 404 error page.

SwiftIdeas

Hmm, unless the plugin doesn’t work then the only thing I can think is that it’s not updating your htaccess file.

If you feel comfortable, you could instead change the rewrite in /includes/custom-post-types/portfolio-type.php

Hi,

Just few points : - http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/webfont/1/webfont.js is not fully compatible with ie8 and generate error on rendering/and high latency. - Bottom of page do not inherit global background (boxed for example) selected in color customizer - It’s not possible to create with visual editor a blog section for a category with no content publish. It could be useful for preparing incoming section. - custom-css.php required lost of ressources, and an alternate solution could be more efficient like creating a real css file instead of php execution each time.

Thanks for the points, we are looking into improving this! :)

Hi Ed Is it possible to put a line/border around the text box – no padding, just a thin line Cheers

SwiftIdeas

The page builder text block?

Hi Ed Thast right – the page Builder text block Cheers Carl

SwiftIdeas

When you edit the text block asset, in the extra class box type the following:

text-box-border

Then add the following to the custom css box:

.text-box-border {
border: 1px solid #e4e4e4;
/*padding: 20px 20px 0;*/ If you need it!
}

Hope that helps.

How would I go about adding text to the portfolio overlays?

Hi Ed,

When I try to update a page using the Swift Page Builder, the changes do not reflect on the front end therefore I cannot use any of the features. Do I need to activate it somewhere else?

Thank you!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

So you’re using the page builder, adding blocks, and when you save the page it doesn’t save? Are you working in the Page Builder only? Do you have any plugins installed that are maybe conflicting with it?

- Ed

tptglobal Purchased

Thank you for your response Ed. I removed the CK Editor plugin, and the Page Builder works partially, since there is no Text Editor I cannot access the text boxes. Can you recommend a Text Editor compatible with your theme? I have tried several and they are not working for me. Thx!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

I’m a little confused by what you mean there is no text editor?.. If you add a text block within the page builder, you will then see the text editor when you edit that asset?

Hi,

When i clicked on tag, there’s not found any portfolio (but it show all related post)

here > http://www.duorecommend.com/tag/ginger-kafe/

pls help! ;(

SwiftIdeas

That isn’t something that’s supported as default, but you could try adding this to functions.php:

function post_type_tags_fix($request) {
    if ( isset($request['tag']) && !isset($request['post_type']) )
    $request['post_type'] = 'portfolio';
    return $request;
} 
add_filter('request', 'post_type_tags_fix');

Hope that helps.

Hi Ed In WP, under Settings/READING, I have set my static page. But it aso forces me to select a Posts page – which is fine.

That page is called BLOG, and is a primary page in the menu of the front page

But here it also asked for a selection of Full TEXT or Summary.

Does this not then conflict with the Blog Templae from the Page Builder (which I have inserted in the empty page called BLOG

Also – in my old WP theme, the blog show images that were pasted in each post.

In your themeforest pinpoint demo you seem to have a ‘single’ image for the Blog Summary, and I can also see some sliding images

Few Questions 1) Can I have my Blog display ‘simply’ display the entire post- ie images and the lot embedded in the blog 2) Can I have my blog display a summary of the post – eg first thousand characters and that pulls in the images and text comprising the first 1000 characters

3) How are you doing the rotating images in your demo blog page

Cheers

SwiftIdeas

You don’t need to set the posts page, you can leave that unselected (and should do).

1/2) You want the post to show all the content in the index list? 3) This is done by selecting the slider thumbnail type.

Hope that helps.

Ed a) I was able to unselect in the SETTINGS-READING section..tried before, but I must no have saved this properly

b) Yes – I could have the entire blog entry displayed. This meant you could scroll down and see/read a bunch of blogs without having to worry about the READ MORE type settings in typical blog posts But – you could also set an excerpt length if you only wanted a few lines per Blog shown

c) In your demo – are the single images I can see known as the ‘FEATURED IMAGE’ setting way down the bottom right in a posts wordpress settings?? Or are they ‘coming’ from another source

Regards

SwiftIdeas

a) Hmm, never seen that before – have you googled to see if you could find a solution?

b) Ok. We do have the custom excerpt box in the post meta that can be used to display custom content – as much as you want. We’ll look at an option to offer full posts in the index in the future though.

c) They are either from there, or the uploader within the post meta – based on the thumbnail/detail type you select.

OK – founded a solution – theres a plugin called Advaced Excerpts – in the worpress.org plugins section. It pulls in all of the HTML and displays it as a ‘page’, Images and all. You can still control ‘excerpt’ length – I suppose you could put ‘99 999’ characters to display to full contents of most posts if required

Seems there are some options that are only useful if you are a theme developer – to allow more control of what is pulled in as well

Default-user
cjayd34 Purchased

OK – tried it – It pulls in the posts content (images etc) – but seems limited to the amount of the post it will pull in – possible conflicts with the method the theme & wordpress pull post content/excerpts in I guess???

SwiftIdeas

Yes I assume it will be a conflict if you’ve checked all the settings for the plugin – it’s impossible for every theme to be compatible with every plugin.

- Ed

Ed It seems excerpts come a WP function called ‘the_excerpt()’

You have this in your functions.php file. Bits of the code are below by changing the_excerpt() to the_content(), I an obtain the Full page listing (images, HTML and Full post), which is what I had in my previous ‘old’ theme). This is still using the PageBuilder ‘blog’ element

You can still ‘attempt’ to use the masonry effect – but it comes out garbled – but thats no great issue – as its the full page effect that I’m after

By the way – I believe I can use the ‘child process’ in WP – which will allow me to edit your primary files??? without messing things up for the future??

Also – Any chance that you might offer a Theme Option to allow a full page blog rollout??

Regards

===========================================

/* EXCERPT ================================================== */

function new_excerpt_length($length) {
    return 60;
}
add_filter('excerpt_length', 'new_excerpt_length');
// Blog Widget Excerpt
function excerpt($limit) {
      $excerpt = explode(' ', get_the_content(), $limit);

Yes, a child theme would be the correct way to go if you wanted to edit core files.

Yes, we’re going to try and get it into the next update :)

Excellent theme – very easy to use!

I noticed the the twitter widget for the footer does not line up with the other footer widgets. Meaning – the first line under the title does not have a break/space like the rest. Is there a quick way to fix this?

Thanks

Thank you for such an awesome theme! I have a question about the team-carousel. How do I apply the link to the team member page to the the photo and member name? I want the users to be able to click on the photo or name of the team member to access their page instead of the find out more button. I was able to delete the button but not sure how to apply the link to the other areas.

Thank you!

SwiftIdeas

You can apply the link in Pinpoint Options > Team Options.

Hope that helps.

thanks for the reply but I dont see a “Team Options” under Pinpoint options… im using the latest 1.3 version.

My Options http://i.imgur.com/ztzPfjC.png
SwiftIdeas

Ahh apologies, I got confused with your question.

You would need to edit the code in /includes/page-builder/composer/lib/shortcodes/team.php or team-carousel.php

We’ll add this in v1.4 as standard.

- Ed

Default-user

Ahh ok, sounds great. Im just curious a rough timeframe when 1.4 might come out. That way I can tell my client about that it might happen in 1 month or 2?

Thank you again for making an awesome theme. This is definitely going to be my go to theme for most projects as its an amazing base and easy for clients to update.

Default-user

Oh and 1 more question. I think I am just overlooking this feature but where can I turn off the breadcrumbs?

SwiftIdeas

We’re hoping within the next week.

You’re welcome, glad that you enjoy it and thanks in advance for any repeat custom!

If you deactivate the plugin, it will disable the breadcrumbs :)

I just bought this theme and it will not install on my Wordpress site! It takes forever to load and then I get a message saying, “Are you sure you want to do this?” and the screen is blank otherwise. I have the current version of Wordpress (3.5.1). Please help! Thanks.

SwiftIdeas

Sounds like you may not have a high enough PHP memory limit. Try increasing the limits to these – http://cl.ly/Mjr1

If not, log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com and I’ll send you over v1.4 which we are readying to send off at the moment :)
