One additional question: what code needs to be edited to change where the thumbnail image for the blog posts are set? I’d like to use the featured image since my archive already includes featured images for each posts.

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

If you don’t provide an image in the meta options, then it will use the featured image. Do you want it to use an image by default for old posts that don’t have the new meta?

Currently I have a post that doesn’t have a meta image set, but does have a featured image and nothing is appear as a thumbnail in the Masonry view on the homepage. This is what made me think that I had to explicitly use a meta image.

I know now why this wasn’t working. The default “none” was set in the thumbnail option. I assumed that a featured image present would override that “none.” I set it to be “image” as std in the meta-boxes.php file and it works now. Thanks!

You’re welcome :)

I was wondering where I can reset a post’s “love” count :)

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You’d need to manually remove the database entries, there isn’t a function within the plugin that does this unfortunately.

- Ed

Thanks Ed. can you tell me in which table & column this is stored? Thanks

SwiftIdeas

It’s in the meta table, under “_li_love_count”

Hi there, amazing theme! A few pre-purchase questions and then I’m sold:

1. Is it easy enough to change colour/background of menu + font/size of menu items? (I mean the main top menu.) 2. I see you can turn off page title, but is it also not too difficult to change the background colour of the page title bar across the top (below menu, above content)? 3. Easy enough to change the size of text as well as font?

Thanks,

Richard

SwiftIdeas

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the kind words, and your interest!

1) Yes, you can change the colour through the colour customiser, and I can provide some custom css to change the font size easily.

2) Yes, this is also in the colour customiser.

3) Yes, we provide font options, and font size options in the theme options panel.

Hope that helps :)

This is an amazing theme; however, I have tried about 20 times, with fresh installations, to install the demo content and it always times out and does not fill installation entirely. This results in a botch and incomplete installation. It seems as though it is waiting on your server to pull the content. I have set the timeout up to 240 with no luck. The main demo content errors result form the digital agency theme – I’ll have to wait then.

Hi there,

Sounds like you may need to increase your php memory, try following these values – http://cl.ly/Mjr1

We use the above and it works perfectly.

In the page builder, I selected Blog. Is there a way to make the child-categories selectable options to display posts from? I would like to have 1 page with all of the posts from a main category, then 3 more pages, each with sub-category posts displayed. Thanks

SwiftIdeas

Child categories should show in the same list, as long as they have blog posts assigned to them.

Hi Ed, another probably easy question for you. Could I hide the back-end menu items (portfolio, showcase) etc. for the different roles? Or otherwise can I hide the items separately in general?

Hi Ed,

Is it possible to change the background colour of the widgets only? Effectively so I can make the widgets in the sidebar look like they are individually boxed items.

Thanks,

Dan

SwiftIdeas

Hi Dan,

Not easily, as there is no padding on the individual widgets. You’d need to change quite a bit of css to do so.

Hi, Apologies if this question has been asked before. I hope to be clear, I’m not bilingual :( I have a problem with the “menu” / main-navigation. It appears on the blog page in the header : http://www.heymann-renoult.com/actualites-presse/ and disappears when I choose one of categories on the sidebar : http://www.heymann-renoult.com/category/en-cours/ And all the subtitles disappear on the sidebar too. Could you please help me ? Thanks in advance ! And great theme by the way !!

Best Sophie

Hello – using the theme and I love it. Have a question about getting a featured photo on the blog page. Also want them all to be same size to create uniformity as you are scrolling down the blog page. How can this be done? Thanks.

Amazing template! I like Flexform also. But in both templates I’m really doubtful about the navigation menu.

I’d like a very simple navigation without any animation (except the simple display block/none of the subfolder).

Do you think I could reach this with your templates?

Sorry for the duplicate question – and thank you for the patience! :)

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Thanks for your interest.

Yes, that would be possible. It would be easier with Flexform, and I can provide some jQuery to change to make it display block/none rather than slideDown.

- Ed

Default-user

Thank you very much for your answer.

Just another (not related and maybe dumb) question: Is it possible to set the full-width layout for every page of the website?

SwiftIdeas

Yes, there is an option in the theme options for this. The page on our demo is just to show you both layout examples :)

Good morning

I have a pre-sale question. I believe that this theme is perfect for me, but I need to add boxes to manage advertisement.

How easy is to work with ads managers?

Is it compatible with bbpress and buddypress?

I tried to go to forum to see answers about this, but it is only for people that bought your themes.

Thank you

SwiftIdeas

Good morning to you too :)

Yes, you can place the shortcodes easily within a text block, or with a widget area.

It’s not tested with either, but we’ve had people use bbpress before.

Hope that helps.

Hi,

Apologies if this has been covered before, but I believe it not to have been.

Anyway, I have set up a blog in the layout of the recent posts module in Swift Page Builder. My problem is that there is an inconsistent excerpt character length within the module. I would like to set a maximum excerpt length throughout the whole theme – to include individual modules – to 98, or at least set that function for the recent posts module.

Could anybody please help me out? I’ve looked at the theme myself, but need a fresh pair of eyes.

Much obliged.

J

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jack,

In functions.php line 728-730 you’ll find:

function new_excerpt_length($length) {
        return 60;
    }

You can increase it there, if you need to make it longer. Make sure you also have it set in the page builder block too.

Hope that helps.

Hi,

Thank you for both replies.

Unfortunately what you have provided does not help as the problem still remains due to certain words being a different length, and excerpts working on word count not character count. Am I right?

So, as a better fix, how can I edit the style of the module so that it creates a slightly larger gap between each row of recent posts so that none get pushed down as per the image provided in the support forum?

Thanks for all of your help.

J

SwiftIdeas

Ahh ok, I see the issue. What you’d be best off doing is setting the min-height for the recent posts, using some jQuery. Open up /js/functions.js and and find (should be line 430):

var widgets = {
        init: function() {

below, add this:

jQuery('.recent-posts').equalHeights();
jQuery(window).smartresize(function(e){  
    jQuery('.recent-posts').equalHeights();
});

That will set the min-height so that they stick to the grid.

Hi,

I am having trouble with the Revolution slider provided with the theme. It seems that since the last update to Pinpoint the arrows and dots appear twitchy. I have tried using the standard slider instead but I would really like to use the RevSlider since it has so much more functionality. Any insight you can provide would be great. Please see: http://shamlian.open-inc.com

SwiftIdeas

Do you have the pagination enabled in the slider, I can’t see the dots?

- Ed

Default-user

I just enabled it. I had it turned off because the dots don’t display properly. The last dot always seems to float under the first.

SwiftIdeas

Just checked and looks fine here, what browser are you using?

- Ed

Default-user

The dots load ok in Chrome but not Safari. If you mouse over the nav arrows they shift up and down. Does it look that way for you. I’m not sure how to change that. Also they are flush to the edge of the slider. Is there an update for RevSlider??

SwiftIdeas

I see you’ve changed to the thumbnails? You can download the latest version in our support forums – http://support.swiftideas.net/forums/topic/revolution-slider-latest-version-3/

Hi, How can I change th height of the slideshow? Not the revolution slider but the normal slides that can be placed in the pages. All my slides have a white border on the top and bottom. Can the frame around the slideshow be removed? Thanks!

Hi there,

Have you checked the settings for the slider? You can set these before you embed it.

Hi, I’ve two question:

1) I’ve inserted eight items in the main nav, and the last one was placed on a new line, although there was enough space to stay in the first line

2) How can I access to the support forum?

Thank you :)

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

1) You can make the menu longer, but you’d need to hide the aux options on the right, do you use them?

2) http://support.swiftideas.net/forums/ You need to register, and enter your license code.

- Ed

Default-user

Hi Ed,

Thank you very much for your answer and support.

1) I disabled all the four aux options, but the menu bar is still ‘short’. Where can I disable the whole aux section?

2) I did!

SwiftIdeas

1) Add the following to Pinpoint Options > General Options > Custom CSS:

#menubar-controls {
display: none;
}
#main-navigation {
width: 97%;
}

hello. Great theme, top class. However on loading into wordpress, the theme crashes wordpress and I get a 500 error from the server. I uninstall and load another theme and its fine. I’ve uploaded onto a different server and its fine. So it must be your theme on this particular server…? anything you’ve come up against? any help would be ace thanks jon

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jon,

Glad you like it! :)

Sounds like it might be your php memory config on that server, might need an increase in the memory. We use the following, and it works perfectly – http://cl.ly/Mjr1 . Either that, or try uploading via FTP.

Hope that helps.
