Hey Epicera – really nice theme. I’m finally getting that portfolio together that I’ve been putting off for YEARS .

I tried to scan through all the comments to see if this question has been asked already – so apologies if I missed it:

I have the slider on the home page auto-rotating, and that’s great. What I really need though is to have it stop rotating when you manually click one of the slide numbers below. That action, to me, indicates that the user wants to look at a specific slide – and currently, the slider just continues it’s auto-rotation – leaving little time to view the selection.

Any thoughts here?

Hi James – no ideas off the top of my head since I didn’t write that particular section of script, but you might want to check out the official KarmicFlow documentation to see if there’s a quick solution : http://www.karmagination.com/blog/2009/09/24/karmic-flow-0-2-content-slider-for-karmagination-jquery/

Hi there!

Thank you for this fantastic theme! My client loves it! I have limited WP customization experience, but this theme was so well documented, I was able to get a site up and running for them easily! If you are considering this theme, let me tell you that you can’t go wrong!

I do have something I have not been able to figure out, however, so if anyone can help, I would be grateful. I saw this question posted earlier in the comments, but the fix that was proposed to them did not work for me. (SORRY!)

When on the blog page and you click on “Next Articles”. It actually does NOT go to the next blog postings. It just refreshes and repeats the first page. I know someone on here mentioned a permalink fix, but that didn’t work for me, I’m afraid. Also, my client has over 200 blog postings, so I am reluctant to change the structure unless I have no other choice.

I had a friend who knows WP better than I do take a look and she was stumped too. So thank you in advance for any suggestions.

If it helps give more information. It looks like the “Next Articles” button is set to go to: www.myclientsite.com/blog/blog (weird) The blog page is www.myclientsite.com/blog

Thanks so much!

How can i make the homepage the blogpage?

The blogposts are messe up in firefox with the image way above the text,do i need to add some padding and where in the css? Please help

While im at it how do i change the color of post headings?

Very clean theme! I was thinking about purchasing this theme and using it as a portfolio website for the company I work for. I was wondering if in the portfolio section is it possible to list multiple categories. This way there would be different sections only showing video files in that specific category. Thanks in advance.

Hi there, The portfolio section is actually setup as a hard-coded image gallery, so it isn’t limited by any category or other filtering method. It’s quite literally a WYSIWYG gallery – whatever you drop in there is what you get :) You can also add multiple sub-galleries if you’d like. Cheers!

Are my questions beeing ignored because i already have bought the theme?

Hello, love the theme but having a couple of issues. sorry, I’m a designer and not that great with code.

The contact button in the upper right and the next button bellow the homepage gives me a 404 page error. I saw some discussion that it may be the permalinks, but when I change that all my links get the 404 page error. Also the portfolio page rollover next button rolls but reveals no images. And there is some browser issues with IE7 -8 and latest version of firefox on my buddies PC.

Thanks for the great theme and all your customer support.

Hi Angel, Have you tried doing it through the Settings > Reading menu – from there you can simply tell Wordpress to use any given page as the home-page. Cheers! Brandon

Great work as usual Brandon.

I saw a post earlier about why the post excerpt repeats itself, and i have the same issue. Did you ever resolve this? Basically taking everything out of the excerpt box, it still takes the first bit of info and adds it to the post teaser. When you click to the page, it then shows adds that same text above where the post starts.

Any luck?

Hi Shawn,

This was actually updated in the last big patch and you can simply download the latest version from your download page, overwrite the theme folder, and you should be good to go. I’m also releasing a big IE specific patch later on this week, so keep an eye out for that (you can follow me on twitter from my profile page, or facebook, or any of the others) to get notified as soon as it’s ready :)

Please send me a direct email if you have any issues after this – it’s the best way for me to get back to you quickly.

Cheers!

Hey Buddy,

One other thing i just noticed, is that based on your dummy settings and the imported XML info you did, its not possible to have a “featured” post show up in the blog listing on the main page. Is this a simple php tweak? I tried selecting and unselecting the basic categories you setup, but none of them would allow for the featured image/story to also be posted below on the home page blog roll. The issue is obviously right now we would have to create a second post just to show the picture, then link it back to the original blog post we wanted to refer it too.

Also any help you can give on the excerpt issue i had above would be rad.

Thanks!

Hi Magarts, I believe this is actually something that’s coded into the Wordpress backend… when a post get’s queried using a special query (for the featured slider), it gets automatically removed from queries that get called out later on in the same page. I would highly encourage you to check this out on the Wordpress codex though and see if there’s a way around it :)

Lovin’ this template! One thing that seems to be glitching on IE are the posts.

The thumb will be aligned left-top corner but the text will be placed underneath it almost the height of the thumb. It only happens so far on IE 7 . Ive gone throught the CSS and tried to hack around it but its not working. You can see it on the home screen posts as well. Then when you click to read more you can see it in the single post. Do you know what line of code in CSS I would change/add to bring the text up? Also, the Newsbox on the homepage does not auto rotate on IE 7 .

Killer stuff though man. Love your work. Thanks.

Hi Rick, I’m actually releasing a patch to fix this up later on this week. Hold tight and you’ll be able to download the brand new patch for this in a few days. Cheers!

I guess I’m on my own to figure out… I love the theme. Do you recommend uninstalling and starting over? I didn’t install the demo files from the beginning, could this have caused the permalink, contact button and other problems I’m running into.

Thanks for any help or reply.

Again… great theme.

Hi Shawn, Just wanted to let ya know I’m hunting down your first message – not sure how it escaped my message filter on my author account, but I’m on it now :)

I love this theme. i just want to make sure… I can have multiple portfolio tabs if I want, right? What is the max number of photos you can upload per portfolio page?

Thanks, Cat

MDNW

1. Yes – you can add as many portfolio tabs as you can dream up :)

2. The max per slide is 24, but you can have as many slides in a page as you want :)

Cheers!

Wonderful theme sir! I was wondering the best way to have the main slider images link to pages as well as posts. I am working on a non profit site: http://www.one-circle.org

I know your time is valuable so I worked at it for awhile and haven’t figured it out yet.

Thank You! – David

Hi David, Thanks for the comment.

As it’s coded right now, the theme basically defaults to using Posts as that’s essentially how the query for the slider is configured. It looks for all Posts with the Category that you’ve specified in the admin panel. Since Pages don’t have Categories associated with them, it’s hard to quickly rewire that function to include some pages and not others. There’s a bunch of customization that could go into this, and what you’re likely going to want to do is hunt down a Wordpress themer that’s comfortable doing little customizations like this. I’d offer myself, except I’m already pretty booked up through March on projects like this.

That said – essentially what you’ll need to do is alter the slider query to also scan for “Pages” that have a new Custom Field (let’s call it “Featured-Page”). There’s a lot of articles written on the web about how to run special queries like this – here’s a good place to start: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/233439

Hope that helps!

Hi there!

I thought I would give this area one more try with my question.

I have something I have not been able to figure out, so if anyone can help, I would be very grateful. I saw this question posted earlier in the comments, but the fix that was proposed to them did not work for me. (SORRY!)

When on the blog page and you click on “Next Articles”. It actually does NOT go to the next blog postings. It just refreshes and repeats the first page. I know someone on here mentioned a permalink fix, but that didn’t work for me, I’m afraid. Also, my client has over 200 blog postings, so I am reluctant to change the structure unless I have no other choice.

I had a friend who knows WP a LOT better than I do take a look and she was stumped too. So thank you in advance for any suggestions.

One thing that is different about the site I have done for my clients than the examples of others already using this template is that I have the home page as a static page (the About page), if that makes a difference. I did try to switch it, but it didn’t resolve the issue either, I’m afraid.

One other thing to note is that if someone chooses a category to search on the blog, that works, and the “Next Articles” seems to work correctly (Although the links are no longer graphic, but text in this scenario).

Anyone have any ideas? I’m very happy to admit that it is/was designer/operator error since this is my first ever site build using a theme. I just don’t know how to solve. I might have to resort to hiring someone.

Thank you very very much. I realize that for this price for such an amazing theme it would not include support, and the developer has done a fantastic job of helping all of us, even though it really isn’t required. So thank you, Brandon. I do appreciate your hard work.

Hi!

Happy to help:

1. Just to be safe, can you try downloaded the very latest version of the theme… the reason being is that I’ve updated quite a bit in the past week and there’s a very good chance that all you need to do is update the theme folder :)

2. If this doesn’t work for any of the issues you are running into, please send me an email directly and I’ll happily check this out for you ASAP and get you a fix quickly.

Cheers! Brandon

Magarts was wondering about having posts show up in both the Featured slider and in the blog listings below. Here’s how to make that happen:

If you want your featured blog posts to appear in the top slider AND in the list of most recent posts in the home page, you’ll need to delete one line of code in the Main Index Template (index.php)

In the BEGIN HOMEPAGE CONTENT QUERY section, remove this line:

‘cat’=>’-’.get_cat_id(get_option(‘theme_featured’)),
