Hi,

Your theme looks great. I have a couple of questions.

1) Is it easy to customize with css? 2) Can you use your own custom post types and custom fields, so that it shows on posts also? 3) Can I have a sticky post, for example at top left? 4) Can I have full width? 5) How many columns can I have? 6) Do you set background colors for each post? 7) Do you have lightbox option? 8) Can you set that you automatically gets certain background colors for example, depending on post type?

Thanks!

themeton

1. Yeah, there provided “Custom CSS” field and you can put there any custom styles and which privilege than standard theme styles. Also theme has Child theme and you can make your changes in it.

2. Right now it prints options and editors only of regular post type. There is no way to execute custom post types and options field on front page.

3. Yeah, it works just like regular wordpress themes for sticky.

4. Yes. There have an option which we added recently, If you see it in action please watch this record, http://www.screenr.com/3Ar7

5. If you select small size of grid, you can show 6 columns there (fixed width which is regular 1170px).

6. Yes, also specially on categories.

7. I don’t understand you what exactly asking about lightbox. But If you click on images of single window, you’ll it on lightbox.

Please watch the tour videos of the theme. Then you’ll see deeply what theme does.

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for quick answers!

2) ok. I have a loop layout plugin, so if you just had the options to choose custom fields for the posts that would be good, then I could just fix layout.

7) I wondered if you got it in lightbox as single post page. I saw that option was possible in extragrid theme. So instead of going to a regular single post page you get it in lightbox instead. So you have lightbox option on single post pages?

Thanks!

themeton

7. Lightbox/modal window loads whole content through ajax method. Which means If there have any script requires for elements or twitter facebook buttons, those need to script reactivation after loaded content. Many people want to use their experience plugins and mentioned that those plugins doesn’t work on modal. If you have some plugin or element which uses some javascript script or jquery, ExtraGrid face some problem. Ajax/modal window little bit restricted. Thatswhy we didn’t include here modal window. Hope you understand it.

Hi,

I saw now (as answer to my previous number 6 question) that you can choose color for each post. If you have frontend publish of posts can you then predetermine a couple of available colors to choose from, so that you get a color scheme that works? Or can you just pick any color then?

Thanks!

themeton

Now theme doesn’t provided custom color on frontend posts. Few other customers mentioned about what users selected strange red or yellow color on their site.

And decided color option doesn’t need on front. Now admin just select their category color and user can put posts to their categories and new posts should show by category color.

Thanks

That sounds good. Maybe a future option could be that admin could enter some predetermined colors for user to choose from also? As an alternative. Anyway, this is a good step on the way.

Hi,

Just one more question. Can you use a more advanced wordpress text editor for inserting the content?

Will the styles and insertions you make with that show in the content part then?

Thanks!

I don’t have a plan for that and I don’t think it is really need for customers

Hi,

I tried this, and it works like a charm :) You don’t see the styles on the blog page (which is great), but you see it on single post page and I tried extra features, that can be used also. That’s great!

However, I have found another thing that doesn’t work, with visual composer.

In visual composer (at least the latest version), you can combine writing text in the wordpress editor and combining elements from visual composer. I tried that here, and that doesn’t work. The things I put in the wordpress editor disappears when I have added elements with visual composer.

Why would I like to have that then? Well, there is a text block in visual composer that could be used for writing my text. But if I use that, the shortcode shows on the first blog page (which looks plain ugly). It doesn’t show on the single post page though.. So if I want it to look nice on first blog page also, I could write a little text there in the usual wordpress editor first, and then efter that (when I am past the excerpt length) I could use all the nice elements that are inside visual composer for the rest of my post entry.

Could you please check this?

Thanks!

themeton

I think using Excerpt field is most efficient way in this case.

Hello themeton, I would appreciate your help on the following issue. During Crawl procedure of SpecialDay & e-Maximos I get a lot of errors of the below mentioned categories: Title Missing or Empty & Missing Meta Description Tag for all the URLs: http://specialday.gr/?like_it=xxxx (i.e. xxxx=1004) All these URLs correspond to the “likes” equivalent of each post. Any idea of the reason and possible solution. Is there anyway from SEO point of view to not index these URLs? Thank you in advance

themeton

Okay okay, I have an idea and found the solution how would be fine there. I’ll let you know when we have updated/fixed it here.

Hello Themeton,

I upgraded to v1.9 and the reported problem is gone.

Have a look here (http://d.pr/i/yHbG).

I am still facing the other problem reported to you in another comment.

I will follow up that problem there. Great job!!!

Hi,

If user can upload posts, can they also get members?

If so, is there any management of members included, or can anybody post? A little information about available settings would be great.

Thanks!

themeton

There have an option for default status which included from FrontEnd.
Also admin (high capability) user can control their publishing freedom.
Please watch this video, http://www.screenr.com/DAr7

Hi,

I saw a post in your demo where there was content text both above and beneath image. Does this means that it pulls whatever content you have on your posts page? And if you don’t have images there it pulls featured image, and then your content is only below image?

By the way, can you choose the order of thumbnail/title/content?

Thanks!

themeton
Now it structured
  • Post title
  • Features (image, video, quote, tweet or slider)
  • Content
  • Post footer (author, like comment)

And Content section would be show everything what you want. Here is the simple examples of rich content, http://leekworld.com/ , http://neyapsak.co/

Great, then I see structure. By the way, on the page you are referring to there is only color in the post footer. How do you achive that? Is it just to target “min” class with a background color in the css? But then you need it with different color on different category or something also…

Thanks!

themeton

It is not an option. The author (leekworld’s) changed little things in php files and modified color option just accept on only post footer area.

Hi,

I have another question about front-end publishing in your Pressgrid theme. Do I as admin or the user decide on the size of the post? Is that a setting I can make?

Thanks!

themeton

There is not option for controlling of post size!

Default-user
ecee Purchased

But I have seen that you have “Read more” on a couple of posts, like this one http://themeton.com/themes/?theme=pressgrid&ref=themeton

Does admin decide on an excerpt fixed length? And does admin decide if you want excerpt or not? Where can I find those settings?

I thought that maybe user could choose excerpt length (as long as it was within admins maximum excerpt setting). It would be a nice option because you would have variety on first page, and you were still showing more information on single detail page.

Thanks!

themeton

Did you run over blog page?
Admin needs to create new blog page and set options including excerpt (full content) or split content by words count. Also there have an option to close entire post content and leave just post title and features

What exactly do you mean with “Did you RUN OVER blog page”? I don’t understand what this means.

If I create a new blog page, how do I get that to show with posts on my first page? I haven’t seen that you have s hortcode or widget or anything I could use to make that happen.

Please explain some more what you mean.

Thanks!

themeton

Please create new page and select page template with blog. Then you’ll see some options which related blog page. That is a just blog page.

Hi, Can I decide which categories are shown on certain page? Can I decide which user is shown on certain page? Can user + category be combined to decide which posts are displayed on a page?

Thanks!

themeton

—Categories => Certain page.

Yes. There have blog page template which provides you category selection. You can add blog page on your menu and home page …

—User => Certain page

I think, there have a chance to control it by category combination and page.

—User + category => Certain page

It looks similar to previous answer. Here is the category controls of frontend posts, http://www.screenr.com/pSn7

Hi,

I have run into some problems.

1) When I am in: Theme options>Skin options>Header background color, the color doesn’t change in frontend when I am changing. And when it didn’t change I put your default color number back. But the color showing in the little colored box doesn’t change to reflect my new color number then.

2) I tried to put in some custom css. It didn’t took my changes. I tried just with “page-teaser” class and simple background on that. But nothing happened. Is there something more then the actual css I need to put in that css box? Can you just write a whatever example of what could go into the box so I can see if you have something extra at start/end of css?

Thanks!

themeton

1. Every color or custom skin options save in css/options.css file. I guess your server has high permission and it doesn’t provide new file creation for the theme. Please create a file in css directory called “options.css” and set come permission there. Then save the Theme Options again and it overwrites this file and renew the styles. After you should refresh your site :)

2. Just related first issue.

Thanks

Hi,

I just wonder. I saw on one of the pages made with Pressgrid that there were a filter menu below the main navigation. Is that a standard setting that you can do with your theme? If so, how can you do it?

Hi, i bought this theme. it’s amazing!!

Can i reduce the height of the header?

Thanks a lot!!

themeton
Header height depends on you logo height + some margins.
This simple style helps you to decrease those margin and spacing
#header .navbar .brand { padding: 0}
.header-sidebar-container { padding:0 }
.header-sidebar-container .user-bar { height:auto; }
Just put it on your Custom CSS field of Theme Options panel

Hi,

I have a couple of questions.

1) There is one thing that I don’t understand. There is no blog or home page under pages. So I cannot go there and change layout or anything on these pages. Can you please explain that? Why are they hidden?

2) I also wonder where I add “header-page” that you have as a white textblock on top of pages? I have searched through settings and I can’t find it anywhere.

3) Under Theme options>Theme Publish>User Login Menu in Header; if I turn that off I get a widget area instead. Is it possible to have both widget area there and user login menu?

4) I don’t understand anything about the user login pages. The same page is showing no matter which option I choose in that menu. In backend they all point at “about” page. Do I have to create all these pages, and functionality on the pages, myself (like “My profile”/”My settings”/”Add post”/”My drafts”/”Favourite posts”), and “Sign in” button? Usually such pages are automatically created with there functionality.

I really need help with understanding this.

Thanks!

themeton

1. I think, there we don’t need to create additional home page template. WP has a chance to select any page on front of your site. Which means you can show anything (blog page, simple page, single page) on front of your site. Most of the corporate themes provided there some page templates as Home and created typical pages as like demo introduces. Then you probably thinking about these page templates

So, please watch this and you can understand what we selected/did on demo site http://www.screenr.com/kBA7

2. Are you talking about site menu?
If it is, you should create your pages and them you will see pages hierarchy there. Also there you can select custom menu which can create Appearance=>Menus section.

3. If you don’t think there happen crowd of your includes at top of site, it is fine. Do the same thing in this record, http://www.screenr.com/qIn7

4. Really purpose of those page selection is just making site accessible URL/address. If there we try to access custom address or non existing page links then it jumps to the 404 or any error pages. Then we need to select existing page/url there.

- We can create some pages there automatically but how we gonna do If there have existing page same as called those trying to create. If we create new pages there, those pages would be empty indeed. Also if admin wants to manage those address himself, our created pages doesn’t necessary anymore. Then we give to the author managing those page addresses and selections.

Hi,

And thanks for many answers today.

1) Yes you select the page, but you can’t change design/layout or anything on that page. If you had a page you could manage the layout somehow if you wanted. I will actually have it as it is, but it would be great if you inserted this grid with a shortcode or widget, and you could yourself choose to place it where you wanted also.

And how do you manage SEO for that blog page as a whole? I have no page where I can set anything.

2) I am talking about this white message box that seems to be named “header-page” that you have right under the main navigation menu. In your demo it says: “Post, Publish … It is Very Easy…..Lets join this community now, you can easily add posts in PressGrid. We can publish your posts immediately.”

4) I am not sure what you are saying.

I don’t know how it is done. But to give an example; in Jigoshop you can choose to create pages that is needed (cart/account and whatever pages they have) – and they have the functionality on them. You just check what they suggest and click yes, and pages are automatically made for you. If you make the same named pages wordpress just add a number after the url on the pages created after the first one. Wouldn’t this work the same?

I just don’t understand how I should make all these pages and the functionality on them? I have really no idea – at all. Do you have a video on that then?

Do you have possibility to send a file or something with these pages? Some themes have sample data they send and then everything is set up like in the demo, so that you start with posts and everything. Maybe that would be a great idea with that option if you are starting with the theme fresh.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have one more question, about video in posts.

On the post page, under “video” tab, there is a box titled “Add video embed”. What should I add here? Not just the url? Because that is not working.

Below in content I added “video player” element through visual composer, with just an url, and that was added fine to the post content.

Please advise how I shall do.

Thanks!

themeton

The theme doesn’t support self hosted videos. That means you should add there some videos from youtube or vimeo (any video sites).

Ok, I was used to it embedding automatically just putting an url there.

I got video to show on the featured spot on grid blog page. But I can not click on video and see start video buttons etc, and get it to play on the grid page, like you have with video in your demo. It just takes me to the single blog page.

Have I missed a setting or anything?

Thanks!

themeton

Is your post has small size?
If it is theme just prints there video thumbnail. Sometimes videos doesn’t play on small sizes then we prints just thumbnail on front. If you select your post size bigger/featured it shows video there

I forgot to say. When you first press on the video, you are moved up on the blog page and the video does not start. If you scroll down and try to start video again, it starts. That is a little annoying behaviour.

I saw that your vimeo video on the demo acted the same, but I thought that you just hadn’t attached the video or something.

Can you please have a look?

Thanks!

What is the video type? video or youtube?
Is this happen on demo site too?

Hi,

As I am waiting to find out how everything with user submit menu works, I disabled that in theme options. Then I got a widget message in the header instead, saying that I should add widgets in my “Array” widget. No such sidebar is found in my widgets area. So I created a sidebar, named exactly that “Array”. But that doesn’t seem to work, as the widgets I put there doesn’t show up in front-end. And the “add widget” message is still there. By the way “Archives” show up in the header when I turn that user menu off..

Are you using Headway?

Thanks!

themeton

Is there have “Header sidebar” area on Appearance =>Widgets ?
Please just add your widgets there, nothing special you don’t need additional widgets there.

I have nothing in my “header sidebar” when I go to Appearence>Widgets and check. But on my front-end I still have this add widgets message + archives widget that is showing. I can’t even understand why that is showing, as my widget box is empty. I have no widgets there.

I tried and put another widget there in header sidebar. Then message + archives widget disappeared. But when I took that widget away, archives + message was back.

Sure, I can figure out something that I want there in this header sidebar, but this must be some sort of bug? Would be great if it would be figured out.

Thanks!

themeton

If you didn’t added some widget at this sidebar area, it prints introduce message at area. Please just add your desired widget Header sidebar area. Thankx

Hi,

I found an issue with post category background color – and the automatic change of title/text color.

I found a setting on category page that I wanted to test out, to set a background color for all posts in that category. Before I put anything there it was white (#FFF) in the box. So after I had tested I put that white color back. And it was white background on the posts then, but the nice feature that you have that the title and text adjusts its color depending on background didn’t change to what it was supposed to. The title and text were now white against a white background.

Can you please check this out? Maybe add some reset/back to default option there? Or just make it change text/title color accordingly to background?

Thanks!

themeton

You look typed there white (#FFF) color. Please do not change it manually. Just pick white color from picker. Or clear color field empty. Empty means you didn’t specify any custom color there

Color inspecting function (which inspects color is darker or light) doesn’t work with incomplete color codes there.

I first picked color, not writing it in box. And afterwards when I realized the problem, I cleared the box. But it’s still like that. So I have to delete posts and make new ones.

If you can, but shouldn’t, change something manually, it would be good if it said so right next to the box,and the best – that you couldn’t do it.

Can something be done about it?

Thanks!

themeton

I did nothing. Please just clear the field of color picker. Tnx

Hi,

I am seeing some alighment issues on blog page.

The first, upper left, isotope item seems to align with the navigation as it should. But the logo seems to align with the whole masonry container, and that container has some margin. It doesn’t look to good when the logo is more left than the rest of the page. I think that alignment is very important to make it look professional.

Can you please check this and fix?

Thanks!

themeton

What is your container type? Full or regular/fixed?
Fixed option looks fine, you can check demo site.

May there have issues on full width option. We have added this option recently and may there have some lake testing

Thanks

I use fixed.

I don’t know if I have blog set up in right way, as I don’t have all the options that you have (as I have mentioned in another comment). But I see that you have alignment issues in demo, for example on this page: http://themeton.com/themes/?theme=pressgrid&ref=themeton

On that page logo and main navigation align on their left side, but that vertical alignment line they make goes right between the container and the left side of the text in the container below.

So there is some alignment issue in the theme. And that I see it on front page, while there is not in the demo, may be solved when I get answer to that blog setup comment I have made.

Thanks!
