Hi, I’m not very familiar with WP so this might be silly. But I see that in the preview you can have two image in a gallery box without the extra small thumbnails generated by WP. How can this be done myself??

I see now, that sliding box will display all images associated with that post, without gallery, as long as the post type is gallery.

Playnethemes

That is correct! :)

I spent all night playing with this thing, now that I see WordPress isn’t as intuitive as I imagined. I have a few thing that I want to talk to you, but don’t take this too seriously as the theme is just plain awesome as is and I’m super happy with it. 1. I went back and read the readMe.pdf, what it said about the gallery post is no longer how it is now is it? I mean, when you say repeat the step to add more image to the slideshow. It’s implying that I will have control on what’s going to display in the featured image. But seems to me it’s not the case here. Changing featured image does not change the slideshow, plus I can’t seems to figure out how to add multiple featured image. 2. Now the reason this whole gallery thing is bugging me is because I’m thinking about do a photo journal format from time to time. Here is what I end up with in the end: http://aeryen.com/naive/?p=61 you can see I have to keep using columns to maintain the overall look(anything but WYSIWYG). I can’t use the default gallery here, as it’s ugly and inconsistent with how other image looks like. 3. The other thing then is about the slideshow, I feel it being there, like this, keep tempting me to click it for a bigger pic, but it’s not click-able. I now see that it’s probably designed to give a preview of the post content, so it’s very basic – don’t even have a “next” button. 4. I really really really LOVE the text editor of the Medium.com, it’s the best among all. But I understand WP is relatively old and can’t easily do as good. Here is what I think is possible: You guys should make the slideshow a gallery plug-in to replace default one! then I’ll be able to completely abandon the column thing and just do one column. i.e. i can insert a slideshow of 3 photos, talk about them, then another 3. I’d definitely pay for that plug-in, i think.

That’s all I can think of now. I want to be clear that I’m not complaining about the theme, the theme is fantastic. So I’m not expecting you to upgrade it in the future or anything. I guess I’m just not super satisfied with the experience of wordpress and need to rant a little. OK I’m off to sleep.

Hello aeryen,

To use a gallery post:

1. Make a new post and give it the format “gallery”. 2. Click on featured image and you’ll get a popup dialog. Now you can upload a series of images all at once by just selecting multiple from your machine (ctrl clicking or dragging a selecti box around them.) 3. Then just select the image you want shown first as the featured image, all other images will show in order of uploading.

I’ll give that gallery plugin some thoughts, seems like a good idea! :) wordpress can be difficult at start but it is a great system though! Thanks for your kind words about the theme, it really means a lot to me :) thanks!

Hi,

How do I change the font of the website title in the header? Is there any way to prevent the header image from scrolling?

Thank you

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

This can be achieved by changing a small piece of code inside “style.css”. You can prevent the header image from scrolling by deleting a little piece of code inside “header.php”.

I can’t seem to find where to put google analytic code? Am I just missing that??

Thanks.

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

You’ll need to use a plugin for that. Such as this one.

This theme is simple and user friendly. It doesn’t have a huge amount of backend customization options but doesn’t really need them. As you can see from the comments the author is very willing to help with any small changes (which I’ve been using to customise the css and php). Good purchase and worth the money.

Playnethemes

Thanks for the very kind words sir :)

Hi there,

I’ve managed to somehow delete the Navigation bar that appears as the nav bar shrinks dynamically (see http://www.gavinwilliams.org/). I made a few alterations to the header.php (took out the big picture) and have simple css as a plugin. Even when I remove the custom css and add the original header.php I still can’t get the small Nav bar drop down. Is there something obvious I’ve missed. Thanks. Keir

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

just add: <a href="#" id="box-toggle" class="tooltips" title="Open sidebar"><i class="icon-circle-blank" /></a> just beneath the header-top-inner div.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks very much for the quick reply appreciate it. I’ve done as you suggest but as you can see the circle appears but not the drop down nav menu. Any ideas? See www.gavinwilliams.org

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

There seems to be a jquery error on your website. The error is a cause of

Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'magnificPopup' themewich.shortcodes.js?ver=1.0:12

I’m assuming you installed a plugin that loads this jquery script and it causes the other jquery script (of the theme itself) to not load because of an error in that plugin.

All you have to do is deactivate that plugin and it should work again!

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks very much really appreciate the help. To anyone else reading this and thinking of buying the theme this shows the level great support that this author offers. Buy it!

Hey there,

first of: thanks for that awesome theme – i love it!

I wonder how I can show the post tags below the post just the way the demo does…

thank you!

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Thanks for the kind words! Glad you like it :)

The tags can be filled in your post itself. Simply edit your post, then scroll down and in the right hand side column you’ll see a box called “tags”. Simply add tags there. It might take a while before they actually appear if it is an already existing post.

Kind regards

Thank you for your fast reply. Since I am used to WP backend, I know where to put in tags. ;) Still I don’t see the tags to appear below the post… Any hints there? ;)

Playnethemes

Ah excuse me :) You could try flushing your permalinks to see if that resolves the issue.

Hey there.

just added a few profiles to social footer and I wonder if there is a way to let the link open in an new tab. could you please help me there?

cheers!

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Thanks for your purchase! If you go into “appearance” -> “editor” and select “footer.php” you can locate each individual social icon. Just add target=”_blank” in the a element!

Thanks for your fast reply. I don’t know where to put it exactly. Could you provide me with the exact line for, lets say: twitter? Thank you!

Look for: (the dots represent coding language)

<a href="...." .....=""></a>

And add the piece i told you earlier like so:

<a target="_blank" href="...." .....=""></a>

Hey!

I purchased your theme a few days ago and love it. Very well done!

One question though: How can I change the “3 bar” navigation icon that shows on mobile devices. My navigation bar has a white background and therefore the white icon is invisible.

Can I change this through CSS or by editing an icon? Where would I find the CSS or icon I need to work on?

Thanks!

Playnethemes

Thank you very much sir :)

Look for: .header-nav span.select:before inside the style.css file.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks for your quick reply. Got that fixed. There is one last question remaining now. Could you kindly have a look at http://pinguinblau.com/image-test/ . It’S the single view of a post. I can’t get the pagination footer area to change the background color. I got it to work on the blog (index.php) and pages (footer.php). What do I need to edit to change the color on the single post view.

I deleted the “style” hardcoded into the template files index.php and footer.php. Somehow this

* *

can still be found in the source of the single view.

Would greatly appreciate you pointing me into the right direction. Thanks!

For some reason theme forest won’t let me post the code snippet here. Please head over to the link shared above and see the “load” DIV in the footer. It still has style elements in them that I couldn’t get rid of…

Thanks and sorry for the crippled messages!

Playnethemes

Hello Philip,

Code has to be put into a code shortcode for it to display properly on these comments.

You mean the “load” area that normally holds an image right? The easiest thing for you would be to just add

background:#000 !important; and change the color to the one you want. This way you won’t have to mess with the code inside the index.php file! If you want you can also just send me a temporary admin login and i’ll arrange this for you! :)

in the demo i see a soundcloud post, but no audio post type? how should i handle soundcloud posts?

Default-user

figured it out. just used the video format and the video custom field with the soundcloud embed iframe

Default-user

Last question, how do I put a video link into a post and have it be responsive? It seems like I have to have a width and height in the iframe and then on mobile the video is too large. If i dont specify a size in the code the video is very very small.

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Create a new custom field called “video”. (Without the ””). Then enter the iframe code in the value box.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks for the fast response! I already know that, but without height= and width= it is very small! But if i use height= and width= then on mobile it is too big! Are videos not responsive?

Playnethemes

Video sshould be responsive. I use the firvid script :) please send me your website url via chat so I can take a look please! :)

Hi there.

Just got your theme attached yesterday. After looking through loads of themes I went for yours. I really like the simplicty – nice theme. :)

I’m just having trouble with the header image. I had experimented with an image straightaway but now I can’t replace that image, only remove. I believe it’s called the header image. Hope I have the name right, but it’s the image as on the first page of the demo.

I’d like to put my image there and keep the glowing title and roll ove sub-heading underneath. Also, I’m using wp.com… does that limit the functionality of this theme?

Thanks and good work.

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Thank you so much for your kind words :)

Have you uploaded the header image via “appearance” -> “header”?

Kind regards

Default-user

Yes, that has worked. I seemed to be going round in circles before. I now need to re-scale it. What is the ideal size?

Aonghus

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Around 1200px x 800px would be ideal! :)

Hey, is there any way to make this theme full width? And has it to be text on the header pic, or can i use an psd or something else? If both answers are yes, consider it bought :)

Playnethemes

Making it full width is fairly easy and required a small change which i can send to you.

You can enter a logo file aswell! :) (jpeg, png etc)

Kind regards

Default-user

Allright, i purchased it a few minutes ago and heres my first problem. I just cant figure out, how to get this parallax effect on the header pic. It works on the footer (i dont know why) but the header keeps static.

But for now: Beautiful theme, great ReadMe and an awesome support!

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Thanks for your purchase! Make sure to upload the image via “appearance” -> “header”. Don’t upload it as a logo!

Kind regards

Default-user

Merci bien! Figured it out by reading the older comments ;)

It’s nice and sexy! Thank you man. I was looking for a nice theme with parallax for blogs for months now!

Default-user

Ok, i hope this is the last time i have to bother you.

1. Is the footer image the same one as the header image? I’d like to set the bottom of the pic i uploaded as the footer image.

2. Is there any chance to get rid of the “read more” buttons and show every post in full? I tried the hint that you gave on an other post, but i didnt split the post, so there’s nothing in the post menu i can delete.

3. can i delete the footer “stats” text? You know, the ones with the post and comments counter.

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Thanks for the kind words!

1. Yes it is the same. I could make it different but it would require quite a lot of recoding though…

2. The read more button also makes sure the user can go to the single post page with comments etc. I could change some code for you so that it doesn’t show when the more tag isn’t used if youv Want.

3. Sure it is inside footer.php i can do it together with the customizations of 2.

Hey,

How can I get a banner ad onto my blog? I want to put it to the side on the main page & then in each of the posts?

Thanks, Kirsten

Default-user

I think I need to put it in the sidebar? Does the theme have this?

Default-user

If I widen theme, as somebody asked above, does this mean I can then use the whitespace on either side to include advert banners?

Playnethemes

Hello,

Widening the theme means the whole theme is stretched to look wider. Your best bet is to add the banner in the header.php file!

Hello,

I recently bought this theme (trying to set it up correctly on www.kourenkov.com) And I’m having trouble figuring out pages, maybe it’s more of a wordpress related question, but I can’t figure out how you linked blog posts to a Page so I can use the header/footer background

I created a static page and set it up in reading as a static post page (in reading settings) but can’t link my posts to it. Sorry I’m not very handy with wordress or coding, maybe you can have a simple answer (didn’t find anything on the forums)

What I’m trying to do is to make a blog section appear first when you come to the site and my blog posts linked to it. (or maybe there’s a way to change the default grey one to every pages or posts ?)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards, Konstantin

Default-user

or just change the default grey background (header/footer) by a picture for the entire website

Playnethemes

To assign a header and footer image go to “appearance” -> “header”. This will be the default image which will appear when you haven’t set any other header image anywhere.

To assign a header image to a specific page just create a new page and scroll down beneath the page to upload a custom header image for that specific page.

By default the posts will display on the homepage. Go to “settings” “reading” to change this.

Kind regards

Default-user

thanks a lot !

just one question, what is the width of the pictures when they are automaticly resised when viewed in the timeline ?

Playnethemes

Hello sir,

Do you mean the images inside the header area?

Kind regards

Default-user

no, the images in the blog posts when they are resised

Playnethemes

Width is around 250px and height scales automaticly.

Kind regards

Default-user

no, the ones in the blog posts, they automatically get rescaled to something like 670 or 675, i just need to know the exact value please

Playnethemes

The width is 672 ;)

thanks :)

Sorry about not know what you were referring too! :) my bad.

Hi,

I am interested in purchasing the theme, but have a few questions first. Is there twitter integration? Let’s say I wanted to have a tweet show up as a blog post, is there an easy way to do this? Can the same be said for vine?

Playnethemes

Hello,

Thanks for taking interest in one of my themes!

Thanks for the quick reply! I purchased. In the instructions you refer to a widgets folder in the download, yet i can’t find it. Where do I find the widgets folder or readme file? http://puu.sh/8686A.png is all i see.

Playnethemes

Hello,

You are very welcome :)

Readme file is located inside the documentation folder! I used to include plugins but that isn’t alowed anymore. Now the only plugin is my own shortcodes plugin inside the shortcodes folder. I forgot to remove it inside the readme sorry! :)

Kind regards

Also, is there no demo documentation?

Playnethemes

Hello,

Do you mean demo content? Since this is a simple blogging theme there is not set demo content no.
