This is prob a easy fix…I just can’t figure it out for some reason. When I add the widgets to the sidebar pages. The text runs over onto the pages. It doesn’t wrap inside the sidebar only. How do I fix the width of content?

thx

FamousThemes

Hi,

Just make sure the widgets don’t contain any fixed html structure.

This is the only way the sidebar structure is getting over the right content. Make sure the html and text structure in widgets is fluid and don’t containt any fixed width.

Also, If I want to add embedd (iframe?) links in posts for people to view vid’s - how/can I add an image etc to home slideshow to link to post to play vid?

FamousThemes

For home slideshow you can add video on the right side big thumb popup.

See the options under the editor in wordpress admin when adding a post to home slideshow “Lightbox image URL / Video URL ”

Use the video url there instead of a big image thumb for popups.

And for video inside the post content and not in slideshow use the iframe normally just insert it in post content in editor. Ofcourse will work only with videos from other website (youtube, vimeo…) and not selfhosted

Thanks for the help. The help file is excellent and exceptionally detailed. Could I also say on a personal note how good you were in your correspondence with me. As a customer or potential buyer of this theme I think that is incredibly important and not something you get from every designer.

Many thanks

FamousThemes

Hey, thanks for the kind words :)

Like I always said getting a positive feedback it encourages me improving my skills, create better items, and dedicate more hours on support.

I’m trying to upload this theme but I get the following error: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Please advise.

FamousThemes

Hi,

Please do not install all the archive you got when downloading. Unzip it and install in wordpress just the theme folder.

It will definitely work.

Thank you for contacting me. I don’t show a separate theme folder in the archive I downloaded. Perhaps I can forward to you what was downloaded via email and you can tell me what folder/file you are referring to. Also can you advise if Primely works with the newest version of wordpress (3.4.1)?

FamousThemes

Hi,

Yes you can send me what you have downloaded. But as I know and I can download the archive myself, it contains also PSD , DEMO data, HELP and “primely-theme” theme folders. So you need to extract only the “primely-theme” folder and upload it to your wordpress theme folders.

Regards.

FamousThemes

Yes it works with the latest WP version. Our demo is updated to the latest version.

Great Theme! It’s working well.

I havn’t updated WP to 3.4.1 yet.

But the images on the home side bar are not working. It shows about 4 1/2 images and if I add any more to show they don’t show up. thus it won’t scroll/move when mouseover. And the links are not linking to the posts? It just goes to #.

Any idea what might be wrong. I have added a few plugins and wp-ecommerce.

I didn’t see a support forum for your theme? thx -Dan

FamousThemes

Hi Dan,

This sound for sure like an javascript conflict.

The easiest way to tell exactly is to deactivate the plugins and see if it works fine then. I am pretty sure it will work fine.

A lot of plugins witch are using the same javascript functions name outhere and there is nothing we can do. This will give conflicts between them all the time.

Let me know if it works when deactivating the plugins.

Regards.

FamousThemes-

Thx for the quick reply…I deactivated all the plugins and activated them 1 at a time to see. It ended up being wp-ecommerce that was causing the conflict. The images/links all appeared and linked to posts perfectly when WP Ecommerce was deactived. It it was a social plugin/etc I’d just look for a new one. But Since it’s our shop cart…what do I do? Is there any way it can be fixed? Can you take a look at it? Or do I try to contact WP-ecommerce also…they would prob say it’s my theme. :)

let me know..I really wanted these to work together. :(

-Dan

FamousThemes

Hi Dan,

I will try to look at it. You must show me the demo url. Just drop us an email if you dont’t want to make it public.

The only thing I can do it to look into the javscript code used in both wp-ecommerce and the slider to see if there are any functions with the same names there, or using the same functions twice that can cause conflicts.

Let me know the url and I will see what I can do.

Hello! I’m wondering if you can help me move the home widget area to the top of the home page.

Also, is it possible to have the homepage display the blog feed? I want to show multiple posts on my homepage – don’t really need the slider.

Thanks!

Kasey

FamousThemes

Hi Kasey,

It’s quite hard to remove the slider functionality from home page. The main theme beauty is that slider on home page.

But you can choose from wordpress admin to have other page as home page. Like this you can remove the slider, and show as home page a custom page you made.

So moving the home widget area on top, means to remove the slider right? and to make is start just where the big image of the slider is.

As the existing widget are on home page you can add the widget to show your blog posts there.

Regards.

Hi I’ve been using the theme for a while now for my website www.cgguest.com

I’m experiencing a problem now that when I add a new category and attach a post to it, even though I have set the picture to appear in my menu and provided the link it does not appear.

I have had no problems with the menu until now and don’t know what I am doing wrong as it has been working very well for my other posts. If you could take a look it’d be great.

My email is chris@cgguest.com

Thanks again Chris

FamousThemes

Hi Chris,

Just to make sure I understand:

You want to create a new menu link representing a new category just like http://cgguest.com/?cat=7 and that link is not apearing in the menu ?

You are trying to add that category link into the menu using the Wordpress Menu tab with those drag-drop blocks right ?

Well if this is the problem, the new category should be added to menu easely, I don’s see any problem why it shouldn’t

But when try to add a new page i menu for example it works ? I mean this happens only for categories?

Regards.

Yes that’s right I have set up a new category (The poetry section) which is a category and through the primely menu I have added that category to the menu system.

When I attach a pic to the post and then assign it to that category it will not feature in the images at the side.

I have had no probs doing this time and time again, but for some reason it is no longer showing up if I add a new category to the menu.

FamousThemes

Hi,

I think I have wrong understood the first time. So the problem is the image that you are adding in a post in the new category is not “feature in the images at the side”. By “images at the side” you are meaning the home slider carousel ?

Remember that to add a post into the featured slideshow you need to select from post options “Use this post in home slideshow” option.

Let me know if this was your problem.

Regards.

Yes I’ve done that but still no joy :(. Is there any way to loop these images on the menu too as if you catch the menu with the mouse it goes all the way to the blank space. my email is chris@cgguest.com if you email me I can send screenshots etc.

Thanks

FamousThemes

Hi Chris,

Just replied to your email. Some screenshots will help a lot.

Okay no probs I haven’t received an email but if you drop me another to chris@cgguest.com I’ll send the screen shots straight away. I found it had a compatibility issue with a plugin I was using which effected the drop downs on the left hand menu.

I’m loving the theme but I have a question regarding the theme.

I was hoping to make the Home Widget Area 2 be a Full Width (520px) so I can enable the testimonial slideshow to go the full width across the page (keeping the menu and the vertical image scroll). Maybe merging the widget would make more sense.

Thanks again.

FamousThemes

Hi,

To do that there will be need some code changes. To modify a custom widget and change his CSS layout.

The only thing I can do for now is to put this on the future updates list I have for this theme.

Hi, I have this theme and I love it but just the other day, I visited my site and noticed that suddenly all my home page images and the http://eventsyourway.net/arizona-vendors/ page aren’t showing up. The rest of the pages, those same images are fine. Any thoughts? I’ve tried everything I could think of. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Site: http://www.eventsyourway.net

FamousThemes

Hi,

It seems that timthumb used to crop the images got something wrong there.

And the most probably it’s from your server permisions. Did you changed anything to your server, or to the permisions of the timthumb.php file and cache folder inside “scripts” folder inside the theme ?

Looking to the script that is responsable with that

http://eventsyourway.net/wp-content/themes/primely-theme/scripts/timthumb.php I get also 404, page not found. Is the file still there on your server?

My site is currently running WordPress 3.2.1 with this theme. Is it safe to update to WP 3.5 and have no ‘issues’?

FamousThemes

Hi,

Yes it’s safe. We have updated our demo also, and it’s working fine.

Hi, I’d like to get your awesome WordPress template. Just a few questions first… I read through the comments & noticed some glitches with some WordPress plugins (javascript). Do you know if your theme take an email subscription plugin (RSS, Mailchimp or Aweber)?

Hi— Bought your theme yesterday, and have already sent an email with a couple of questions. I know it’s been about 6 months since you posted here, but hopefully you’ll see this soon.

How would I go about deleting the large post image and moving all of my content up? I just want the text, or alternatively (ideally), the featured image would be automatically generated instead of having to manually upload every time. It suits my purpose to do so for the thumbnails in the slideshow, but having that large horizontal image is not conducive to my site.

Alternatively, how would I go about making the image vertical and smaller so that the text wraps around it? I have found the code to delete it completely, but haven’t yet found the way to move the text up to just below the title.

Hoping you see this and have a solution! Otherwise really enjoying the uniqueness of this layout, and hope to use it for a while to come! Thanks in advance.

Okay, so I found a way to delete the image and move the content up, but again, my first choice would be to make it the featured image instead and have it float left so that the text will wrap around it on the right side.

Waiting anxiously for a reply! -Tia

FamousThemes

Hi,

Replied also to your email.

In code the big image of the slider is added with position absolute.

So the best way is to keep it at a fixed dimension, so you can now where to start with the content below.

If you want to make it vertically you can do it by modifing the CSS style. That text below is also with position absolute added. And also need to have a specific height.

In index.php file you have the blocks dinamically created. Starting with pg_title beeing the title, pg_preview the big image section witch is resized with timthumb as you can see in the code (..........h=224&w=516&zc=1” width=”516…............), and pg_desc1 beeing the description.

In style.css you will find the style of all classes in the slider.

And inside the scripts folder see the slide.js file where you can find the javascript code that makes the slide function.

The content under this slider right section (big thumb and text) is added using a fixed padding on top like you saw in the CSS.

.home_content_bottom{width:520px; float:left; padding:575px 0 0 217px;}

The things you wan to do with the layout can be done, but will require editing the code.

Also the functionality like I said in the email can be changed, but only by modifying the code.

This will require some CSS, js and php knowledge if you want to do it yourself. It’s not an easy slider code.

Regards.

Hey—thank you again for the quick reply. :) Got another issue, which another person had a while ago.
Hi, I have categoriesed portfolio posts and the link to the category appears on the portfolio page as I’d hoped as a link to see all posts in that category. However when I click the link to the category it tells me no posts have been added to that category yet, even though they clearly have. I assume it’s ony looking for blog posts even though I can add portfolio posts to the categories, is there any way to fix this please?

Many thanks for your help, apologies if I’m just missing something obvious.

This is also happening on your demo, btw—http://famousthemes.com/primely-wordpress/?cat=17

Is there a reason why the portfolio posts don’t actually link to anything (i.e. the post title)? Just curious. And can I change that so that there is a permalink to the full width portfolio page?

Thanks for your patience :)

Okay, disregard message above. I still need that missing line of code to get the portfolio posts to show up in the category archive.

Hey-I have categorized portfolio posts and the link to the category appears on the portfolio page as I’d hoped as a link to see all posts in that category. However when I click the link to the category it tells me no posts have been added to that category yet, even though they clearly have. I assume it’s only looking for blog posts even though I can add portfolio posts to the categories, is there any way to fix this please?

This is also happening on your demo, btw—http://famousthemes.com/primely-wordpress/?cat=17 At least in Firefox. Don’t know if it’s browser specific.

What do I need to do/change to fix this, please?

Thanks!
