Is there a way to change the star rating icons or include one of my own? I have one that is popcorns =)

You could try by replacing the stars image sprites inside the ‘images’ folder with one of your choice, keeping the same sizes, transparency and file names. This could require some further CSS fine tuning though.

Greetings!

Love the theme already. :) Some problems still emerge, of course.

One fundamental question I have: I understand that it is possible to have a full width slider on top of the startpage just by disabling the secondary slider, the sidebars and/or the vertical slider. But what if I want to change that from day to day? Seems, that this is a basic setting for the whole site in the theme options. Or am I wrong?

Example: I want to have a full width-article on day 1, two narrow slider-articles on day 2 on top (the full width-article going downwards underneath the 2 newer sliders, but still remains full width!), and then a new full width-article on day 3 on top, pushing the two sliders from day 2 further down, staying narrow. Sounds more complicated than it is. Just want to give important articles more room on the startpage if I want to. Possible?

Hi Richterprodukt,
glad you like the theme :)

Unfortunately what you are asking would need to change the whole sliders system and that is not possible without some pretty heavy customizations.

Hello again!

My site is now looking really awesome with your theme and all the customizations… One thing I really need and cant find it in your theme, is to create new pages FULL WIDTH.. no sidebar… Usually other themes you just select the template while creating the new page… but with your theme there seems to be no option.

Is there a workaround this?

Thanks again! ... if you want to look at the site is at www.elblogdelhombre.com

Hi there, thanks for your nice words, glad you like it :)

To create full width posts/pages just move at the end of the post editor page, there is an option called “Full Width Layout” to enable.

Xronize – it’s weekend!

However … may I add another question to the one above? Here we go. Look at the pic of my Header: http://imgur.com/YoRwUcs After inserting the bigger banner there’s a problem with the arrangement. The “Pages” (Home, Seite 1, Seite 2 …) are displayed in two columns with no spaces between them. Shouldn’t the names appear in the black boxes by the Home-Button also? :/ Secondly I want to have the banner exactly in line with the logo. Could it be, that I have to tell the CSS what’s the exact size of my logo? As you can see, it is a little bit bigger than the standard-logo.

In addition I want to reduce the spaces above and underneath the logo. Is that possible, manipulating the code? Margins, somewhere?

Thx for your help! :)

Hi again :) I’ll try to number the questions I got for ease:

1. You need to assign your menus in Appereance > Menus if you want the same menu to appear in the Main navigation. Have a look at the documentation about this.

2. You need to play with padding/margins to align it, as everyone has different logo sizes and proportions. This is the selector you may want to work with to add some custom CSS: .

.branding {padding: Xpx Xpx Xpx Xpx}

(Spacing order is: top right bottom left)

3. Try by pasting this in the custom css textarea to overwrite the default header spacing:

#full-top {
padding: 20px 0;
}

(Reduce the ‘20px’ value)

Hope this helps

Hi,

My Video Embed Widget does not work,

Whatever video that I put in ID, don’t play!

Look the message error in Small Widget called “Destaque Netshoes” http://revista.corporatech.com.br/

Hi there,

please make sure you’re entering the video ID only as described in widget settings. For example for YouTube:

Hi djwd

Sorry if this has been asked before – is there a way to resize photos down to the right size needed for sliders and featured images? I changed the crop boolean in functions.php to false, but that doesn’t seem to be working…

Thanks again – enjoying the process of customizing your very well thought out theme :)

djwd
djwd Author

Hi there, thank you for your nice words :)

To set your thumbnails to work nice with the theme you just need to regenerate them with some plugin like Force Regenerate Thumbnails, you have to change that boolean property only if you do not want images to be hard cropped on resizing.

Hey, How do I install updates? Is it just a matter of uploading new theme zip file?

Do all my settings etc stay too including colour choice and custom css?

djwd
djwd Author

Hi there, If you didn’t manually edit any of the theme files, it’s enough to re-download the item and replace you theme folder. You won’t lose data in the theme options as they are stored in the database.

Hey dude, to install the update with buddypress do I just do the same thing as last update. Upload new theme file?

dannisuriano

Also, is there anyway to force a number for RSS subscribes in the social widget? :)

dannisuriano

Sorry to bomb you with several questions all at once. My last two; -> The buddypress profile menu isn’t showing correctly and I cant seem to get it to work -> is there anyway to make the buddy press menu that is in the wordpress toolbar (activity streams, forums etc) to be in the sites drop down user menu where it only has profile?

djwd
djwd Author

1. Yes, the updating process is always the same.

2. You can manually enter a value in the ‘default’ field if that’s what you mean

3. What do you mean it’s not working correctly? It would be possible to add them in dropdown menu I guess, I’ll think about this

dannisuriano

I got the bp menu to display correct :) You have done an awesome job with this theme!

Yea I think if the theme menu had all the bp options and a notifications Icon next to the drop down menu it would eliminate the need for the ugly wordpress toolbar cause lets be honest, it is ugly lol!

I have send you a private message through here a couple of times but I’ve never had a reply… would it take much to get that done for my site privately through you?

djwd
djwd Author

It’s weekend so things might get a little slower but I will read and answer all the e-mails I get.

Thanks for your feedback, honestly I don’t like that bar too, but I don’t know maybe usual buddypress users like it, I’ll see If I can better exploit the user menu though.

djwd

dannisuriano

well you can count on the fact this is one buddypress user who DOESN’T lol

when you get a chance can you email me regarding personal customization to get that menu so I can ditch the wordpress bar for bp users?

Thank you :)

dannisuriano

also when I am trying to change background for different category it loads, I press insert into post to save and then the load box goes white and nothing happens from here. Might be a bug

djwd
djwd Author

So you can’t set different backgrounds for categories? It’s unlikely to be a bug as I and many other buyers are setting backgrounds succesfully. Please try to disable all your plugins and try again. It could also be a server issue.

Btw I couldn’t find any e-mail from your nickname, you can contact me through my profile page form.

djwd

dannisuriano

ok will try that :) Thank you!

Is there any way to stop the category and post exert showing on the homepage slider? I’ve disabled number two so the first one is extended and using this as advertising slider however I want to remove the category and the post exert from sitting over the top of image

Hi,

I assigned different colors to each category, but the standaard green color on the pages (and logo) wont change to the category color. I already followed your instructions on the support page with putting jquery and css to the advance page.

Can you help me out here please? This colorchanging feature was the main feature for me to buy this theme.

I tried to add: #full-top {background-color: #hexcodecolor!important} .main-navigation ul li {background-color: #hexcodecolor!important}

to theme options > advanced > custom css

but it didnt effect anything. the main color on logo etc stays green.

I also tried to put the code to category > custom cssm but this also didnt help.

I tried to change the #hexcolorcode to a specifik color like #0096ff, but then the top bar and the main navigation buttons changed to that color, keeping the logo and its color to the standard green color.

djwd
djwd Author

Hi there, I’m not quote sure I understood your issue. If you move to archive pages they do not have the assigned category color?

The logo ‘trick’ is a separate thing I explained for advanced users asking, it’s not really a theme feature. By the way if you could provide a link it would be easier to understand and help.

PS: #hexcodecolor have to be changed in a code color of course. :)

Hi djwd, thankyou for your reply.

The problem is that the theme doesn’t change colors when you click on another category. When I change the #hexcodecolor to a code color, the top bar where the logo is changes to that color and the main navigation buttoncolor changes: http://i39.tinypic.com/2u5438n.png http://i41.tinypic.com/jj5wkj.png

I think I see the problem now. I deleted background color @ theme options

I just had to put the hexcodecolor on the desired color for the top bar where the logo is. at first it didn’t seen to work, but all of my categories were empty. After putting some posts in the categories, it seems to work just fine now. Thanks

I got 2 small issues, but I will post it in a new comment about it.

Hi djwd,

still love your theme. Its just fun working with it. And thumbs up to your support. It’s the best I had so far on themeforest.

I recently saw a post here that was dealing with resizing images or mobile devices. I do have the same problem. When I open my site on different mobiles (iphone4, 4s, 5) it doesn’t want to fit the site width 100% to my screen.

I created a new post with visual composer here: http://www.brettspiele-magazin.de/bang-kartenspiel/

And also the old posts with shortcodes here: http://www.brettspiele-magazin.de/rialto/

Both were fine with theme version 1—> now I am using 1.1.2

Maybe its not a common issue but I am stuck. I just can’t find the error.

Please find some time to assist me. If I come up with a solution before I will post it here.

Cheers, Norman

Hi mate, thank you very much for your nice words! :)

I think that is caused from the Facebook share button at the end of the post, try to remove it to see if that fixes the resizing.

Hi there, firstly very nice theme!

I have got a problem with Tabs in Visual Composer. The tabs are stacked vertically rather than displaying horizontally.

Love this theme! But I got 2 small issues with the styling: http://i40.tinypic.com/16axh07.png

1. Happens when there only a couple social buttons, I’ll fix this. In the meantime:

.util-menu ul {

This theme is awesome, congratulation!

I have a problem with translation file: I apply the translation file and the widgets that make up the main page disappear. If I go back to default translation files the widgets that make up the main page reappear.

Hi jdwd,

Been having an issue over the last week or so with the Facebook Like button since I installed your theme. I can’t seem to get it to work no matter what I try. I have decided to use a plugin called Flares for social sharing, but I have tried Digg Digg, and various others and still had the same problem. Have you had anyone else come back to you with the same problem, or could it be my Facebook app giving me grief still since the 2012 breaking changes they announced?

Thanks in advance

djwd
djwd Author

Hi, what’s the problem exactly with the fb like button?

Tell_Tales

It doesn’t pop out the standard Facebook window with the optional comment and submit . When pressing like, the button seems to be clicked but nothing happens. I am using a plugin called Flares, but like I said I have tried others and all having the same issue.

Facebook introduced new rules to how the Like button works and I have a Facebook app which had some errors that I addressed (July 2013 Breaking Changes), if it helps…

http://developers.facebook.com/roadmap/

What do you think it could be?

djwd
djwd Author

So the theme facebook button doesn’t work either? I look into this as soon as I have the chance and fix it if needed. Thanks for your feedback

Tell_Tales

I activated your Facebook button which was included in your theme and it still doesn’t work. It pops up but doesn’t appear on my Facebook wall. Tested extensively now. Tried deactivating all other plugins which could affect it yet it still has the same issue. I even removed my facebook app id from the header.

Tell_Tales

Any ideas why its not working? Could it be a conflict with a plugin?

djwd
djwd Author

I’ve been really busy with the BuddyPress update lately, now that it’s almost done I will have the time to look more into it and do some tests, maybe something have changed in FB api. Btw always disable ALL your plugins when troubleshooting something as a first try.

djwd

Tell_Tales

Ok thanks, I will try disabling all plugins today and get back to you.

Tell_Tales

Hi djwd, It seems to work the same, it only posts once I enter a comment and click post to Facebook on the pop-up confirmation. I tested this on 2 other major sites and it seems “normal”.

Sorry for the bother then! Its a problem with the Flares plugin after all.

djwd
djwd Author

I know but you shouldn’t need a plugin to share a post on facebook. I will test this extensively next week and see if I can replicate the issue or not. Your patience is appreciated, thanks.

Got a couple other issues djwd,

For some reason the apostrophes I use in my Post Titles are causing my font styling to break. It isn’t inserting the ’ html code it looks like.

See here: http://www.telltalesonline.com/2386/us-box-office-despicable-me-2-tops-charts/

and

On iPhone and iPod when opening a post it doesn’t open to the 100% width.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi,

1. I will test this out in the meantime try by entering the character code

(without the space after the ‘&’)

2. That is a bug caused by the facebook like button, it will be fixed in the next update.

djwd

Ok great thanks!

What about the mobile width issue? Is this a common issue everyone is facing?

djwd

As I said that is a known bug caused recently by the Facebook share button, something must have changed in their API’s. It will be fixed in the next update though, in the meantime I suggest to remove it and rely on some plugin for that.

Hi djwd,

Having a problem with the slider. When using the visual composer on a post it seems to prevent the body text from appearing on the slider description text area. Been finding ways around it by taking a sentence out of the visual composer but the article appearance has been suffering as a result.

Here is my post: http://www.telltalesonline.com/2734/uk-box-office-chart-monsters-university-charges-to-number-one/

It is in the 2nd slider on my homepage.

Hi there,

Excerpts for posts made with the Visual Composer need to be set manually as WP won’t execute shortocodes in post previews. If you can’t see the Post Excerpts textarea you need to enable it from the “Screen Options” on the top right on the post editor page.

Hello again…

Theme is looking great and we love it.

Quick Question… How do I turn off the number of comments and the number of “days ago” that posts were made on the home page widgets and sliders?

Since we are an actual printed publication, much of our content is not date sensitive and we don’t want items looking old that were from 200 days ago!

Same with the fact that we don’t want a lot of posts that show “0” comments.

Thanks in advance. Rob www.thesocialmagazine.com

djwd
djwd Author

Hi there, thanks for your nice words, glad you like it :)

There is no option to turn them off, you can try with some custom CSS like (untested):

.entry-meta {
display: none;
}

djwd

Default-user

Nope unfortunately that didn’t work. Thanks for trying, please let me know if you have any other ideas. Also… we are now having another issue. When we try to view any image gallery on mobile it pulls up the first image and then locks up the site completely. The forward and back buttons, as well as the “x” button, will not respond…

Help please ! Thanks again.

djwd
djwd Author

It must work at least for the home page, please make sure you’re not including the ‘pre’ tags and are pasting this in the Advanced > Custom CSS textarea.

I’m diggin into the galleries on mobile, it might be a recently introduced bug, if so, I’ll fix it asap.

djwd

Thanks… I did get it to work for the home page. Please let me know when you get the mobile problems fixed. Also, I am not getting “related posts” to show up even though I have that turned on in theme settings. Any idea why?

Hi, the background is already responsive, you can’t upload a different image for every screen resolution out there. Upload a 1920×1080 (with an eye to the size) and you should cover all common resolutions.
