Hi, nice theme! I was wondering if you could direct me to where to make the following changes:

1. Change background colour of slider area 2. Is there an optimum size for slider images? 3. To remove date and read post from the slider image, or all three pieces of info

Thank you so much! I appreciate any help.

Hi there.

The size of the slider is 1000×460 so anything larger or the same as that will work. The theme will crop the images for you when you upload them, So you don’t have to worry about the size as much.

3. Open featured-slider.php and remove code from line 39 to line 43:

<div class="slide-cap">

.....

</div><!--.slide-cap-->

Thanks.

Thank you so much! I have one more question, is it possible to change the fonts?

promola

The only way to change the fonts is through the style.css file.

Thanks.

hi, firstly thank you for this awesome theme.

i want to make my slider images clickable is this possible,

and where can i change the “READ POST” button.

promola

Hi there.

1. To make the slider images clickable you will have to go into the code. Do the following if you are familiar with code:

Open featured-slider.php and go to line 36 and replace it with the following:

<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail('feat-thumb'); ?></a>

2. To change the text in the read post button, Go to the Featured Slider tab in Theme Options.

Thanks.

Hi I have a bit of a problem with the social buttons. After changing the font colour of the nav bar, the circles surrounding the social buttons are no longer centered, they are off to the right. I’ve tried fixing this but the circles don’t seem attached to the actual social buttons but to the nav bar? Could you please tell me where I need to edit the code to fix this.

I also wanted to change the colour of the circles but that removes the social icon images and just leaves a small circle. Please help.

Default-user

Thank you I’ve found that, the problem is I don’t know what to change since I’ve only changed the font colour of the nav bar. I didn’t touch any of the social styles. I don’t know what to change to fix the circles being off centre.

promola

In your custom styling replace the following:

#main-nav a

with:

#main-nav .sf-menu a

Hi, Just purchased Promola and I was SURE that I was gonna love it (I am a newbie), however, when I checked the Wordpress site and just realized that I might not be able to use it after all. Is this true? I CANNOT find the Install themes button under Appearance/Themes.

Hi Jonathan.

You need to install WordPress on your own server. Please read this: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

Thank you.

HI Promola! I have a question about your theme before I make any final decisions. I was wondering if this theme can look similar in size to this blog A pair and a spare? ps. I really love the way your theme looks!

promola

Are you uploading the promola.zip file or the final_download.zip file?. You should upload the promola.zip file.

I got it nevermind!

promola

Alright have fun.

Can we use parallax in slider? If we can, how?

Thanks,

promola

Yes you can but I cannot help you with it.

Hi, just a few questions real quick.

1) How do I include photos in the individual post previews in the front page? 2) How do I direct the slider to ‘grab’ the photos? 3) When posts are shared in Facebook, is it possible not to show the “wp.me” links? Or is this an issue with wordpress? 4) How do I include photos shown in the sidebar previews?

My link is www.curlypaper(dot)(com)

Thank you in advance.

Hi there.

You need to add a featured image for each of your posts.

Go to “All Posts” in the WordPress Admin.

Click “Edit Post” and in the edit post page look in the right for “Featured Image”, Click “Set featured image” and upload any image you want to use for that post.

If you are new to WordPress there are a few tutorials for beginners here: http://code.tutsplus.com/articles/wordpress-101-video-training-part-1-the-dashboard--wp-20472

Thank you.

How do I get each blog post on the home page to say “Read more” instead of ”...” ? i purchased the promola theme

promola

You will have to edit the code directly to get that.

Hi Promola,

Is it possible to change the two advertising areas (header & side bar with widget) to ‘rel=nofollow’ links,

Hi, I got it, just noticed I had asked that question a while back… Great theme BTW

promola

Thanks I’m glad you like the theme :)

Hi,

I installed the theme and I am having no trouble personalizing it EXCEPT the fact that the header items are not showing up to modify. I have no option to load a logo, an add and the social icons are not showing.

Here is my test site: http://www.urlgone.com/97c746/

Thanks.

On this line:
‘cat’ => $catergory_option

Change $catergory_option to the category IDs you would like displayed.

Default-user

And if I want all of them do I delete that part of the code? or do I make it ‘cat’ => all? thanks.

promola

Just remove that whole line.

'cat' => $catergory_option,

Hello, i saw your newer themes open the social buttons in a popup, how can i do this with this theme?

Hi.

I will update all my themes before the end of this week and they will all have this feature. I will notify you when the updated theme is ready for download.

Hi Enes.

That is not possible without some coding and unfortunately I cannot help you there.

Thank you.

Hello, is that possible to optimize the images for mobile view in regards of Google Page Speed?

If you look at the score, it seems the biggest problem is the image resizing, because they use the original images.

http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fplayfront.de&tab=mobile

best regards

promola

Hi there.

I’ll see if I can get a solution for you, This might require a bit of coding though.

Default-user

Hello, i found a “solution” that makes the mobile view a little bit better. Instead using custom image sizes, we now using the wordpress own image sizes, defined under media settings. So, it takes now the wordpress medium image size for posts and not the large/full size image and resizing that. It´s still not ideal, but better than nothing.

thx for help …

Hi,

I installed the theme on jovenyguapa.com but when I click on any category I have a 404 error message, can you help me?

thanks in advance

promola

Hi there.

Please change your permalinks to “Default” save and then change them back to your preferred format. See if this doesn’t help with your problem. Settings > Permalinks
