Hi Ed – fantastic theme :-)

I’m using my site purely as a portfolio, running from one single portfolio page (my static homepage) on which there will be 8 items.

1. Is there a way to embed a SoundCloud player inside an accordion panel? I can embed a soundcloud player OK in a portfolio item’s normal body. And i can embed a YouTube video inside an accordion panel.

2. In my Theme Options, i do not have a ‘style’ tab, as mentioned in the documentation. Therefore i cannot change the background colour/image. Any idea where my ‘style’ tab could be?

Kind regards,

Jordan Craig.

SwiftIdeas

1. Should be fine, just place the embed code within the accordion shortcode?

2. You can find the tab in the WP Admin Bar – Live Customiser. Apologies for the documentation, i’ll get that updated.

1. I got the SoundCloud embed to work inside the accordion. I found i had to leave a line break between the panel open and close tags like so:

[panel title=”Panel #1”]

https://soundcloud.com/tangointheattic/sets/sellotape

[/panel]

2. I can get to ‘Color Customizer’ from the admin bar, is that what you mean? From here i can change Theme Skin dark or light, and I can change ‘Color – Accent’ and ‘Color – Shortcodes’ but no background alteration can be made. Still no sign of a ‘style’ tab, but i think i’ve looked everywhere!

Kind regards,

Jordan Craig.

SwiftIdeas

1 – Great!

2 – That is the style tab, that line in the documentation is incorrect. You can’t choose the background color as the masks for the shape overlays are images. Any color change would require images to be created to match for the masks.

Hi there How do I get the slider working? Thanks – great theme.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Please refer to the included documentation, it covers everything :)

Thank you – I read through the documentation – turns out the slider is only on certain posts – looking for a third party solution. Ed I did read the documentation and I still have a question: I have made 18 categories for the portfolio filterering and have to make another 12, however there are only 7 to choose from and only 7 show when I select the “all” filter, any thoughts on how I get to show them all. The documentation doesn’t say anything and I read all the comments without luck. Thanks in advance. -Ben

SwiftIdeas

It will only show filter options for items that have posts, and have posts displaying in the items on the page – to avoid the chance that a user could click an item and then have it show none if it doesn’t have any results.

Hope that helps.

excellent – that helped very much.

Hi,

I’d like to change the order of my portfolio category on my portfolio page.

Any solutioons?

Thank you

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Unfortunately the best way is to actually edit the published date! There are a few plugins, however these mess up the order when you want to view next/previous. Hopefully something the WordPress improve in the future!

Hi again Ed,

I want to use a header image which is larger than the 158px x 75px dimensions specified.

I had this working momentarily when i uploaded a 300×300 image.

I am now trying to use a 600×200 image, but it keeps resizing to the default dimensions.

Can you advise?

Thanks, Jordan

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jordan,

The standard max-width for the logo is 220px, to allow room for the menu items. How wide would you like it to be?

- Ed

jordanpcraig

Ah i see.

600 would be great! The image is 600×200.

Here is the URL btw: http://www.fuzzytapes.com/

As you can see, although i’ve uploaded the 600×200 image, it is loading in the smaller dimensions.

SwiftIdeas

header.php line 149, change it to:

<div id="logo" class="ten columns alpha">

and line 161 change to:

<div class="nav-wrap four columns offset-by-two omega">

Hope that helps!

- Ed

jordanpcraig

I had just read something similar on page 9 of this thread!

Ok i’ve done that Ed, and re-uploaded the logo but it is still displaying the smaller dimensions.

Here is a screenshot from my edited header.php http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8463/8426610541_52907b8301_b.jpg

Does that look correct?

SwiftIdeas

You’re changing the code for the logo-right config, if you check further down you will find the code for the logo-left config :)

- Ed

jordanpcraig

And just to be thorough, here was what my header.php code looked like before the edit:

SwiftIdeas

Check my reply above :)

- Ed

jordanpcraig

Ahhh of course, duh! Thanks Ed! Working now…

Btw its just “logo” not “logo-left” for that one. In case you ever need to refer to it again! ;-)

Jordan

SwiftIdeas

I was referring to the config, rather than the if statement check ;)

Glad you got it sorted :)

Hi, I bought your template which is very nice !!! I just do the 3.5.1 wordpress update and it seems that slider function in portfolio doesn’t work anymore. May i have to do an template update ? Which folders i have to update?Sorry for my english :) and thank u !! yaya

Hi there!

If you download the latest version from here, or through Appearance > Themes then that will fix the issue.

Thanks for the continuing support Ed, it has really helped me get my head around the workings of this theme. Couple more queries below, that reference the page http://www.fuzzytapes.com/

1. The arrows at the bottom of each portfolio item that link to the next page go in the wrong direction! So when i’m on page 3 and hit the forward arrow, i get page 2 when i expect page 4.

I’ve titled my items by numbers 1 to 8 for convenience, and i have made sure they are listed from 1 to 8 under ‘Portfolio->Re-Order’

2. My second query is to do with the dimensions of media content when being used on a portfolio page, and in a slider. I’ll use this page as an example: http://www.fuzzytapes.com/?portfolio=1

I wish for the images in the slider at the top to be 300×300 (i’m ok with there being excess horizontal space) Currently they are resized to fill the breadth of the slider, and some of them have been horribly cropped leaving large grey chunks.

Further down the page, i wish to have control over the dimensions of the YouTube videos. Currently they automatically resize to stretch across the full width of the column.

Thanks for any advice!

SwiftIdeas

You’re welcome!

1 – Unfortunately when you use that plugin it breaks the correct order, which is not really much we can do about as the next/previous is a native WordPress function.

2 – The size of the images is set from functions.php -

    add_image_size( 'full-width-image', 1000, 563, true);

You would need to change that, then set the css for the slider to have a margin of 0 auto and a fixed width of 300px.

3 – You will need to wrap the video in a div, with the following inline styles:

width: 60%;margin:0 auto;

that way you can provide a width and keep it central, whilst also keeping it responsive.

Hope that helps.

- Ed

jordanpcraig

1 – I see, ok. Ah well. I might disable the plugin, then re-create every page in reverse order, that way the most recent item will be number 1 yeah?

2 – edit “add_image_size…” in functions.php: done!

Now where do I edit the css for the slider? functions.js.php?And what exactly would I type? Sorry, i have no experience in web design, just picking this up as I go!

3 – Again, my inexperience tells. Would I do this when editing a portfolio item, entering the code directly into the content area box? In ‘text’ mode?

I tried doing this, using this code:

<iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/cU0Trxix_5U” height=”” width=”60%” margin=”0 auto” allowfullscreen=”” frameborder=”0”></iframe>

But all i got was a video that still stretched across the full width of the page, and was 3 times as tall!!

jordanpcraig

PS: 1 – i will just edit the publish date instead of re-creating each item!

SwiftIdeas

1 – Correct, that’s easier to do.

2 – Use the following custom css:

.portfolio-slider {
width: 50%; // You can change this to suit your needs
margin: 0 auto;
}

3 – Try this:

<div style="width:60%;margin: 0 auto;"><iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/cU0Trxix_5U” style="width:100%;" allowfullscreen=”” frameborder=”0”></iframe></div>

Hope that helps.

- Ed

SwiftIdeas

Also, open up /js/functions.js.php and on line 181 add a new line and add in:

smoothHeight: true,

This will make the slider height animate.

- Ed

jordanpcraig

2 -I keep getting “Service Temporarily Unavailable” when i try to update .php files, so i’ll try again later on.

3 – I tried that but just got a 404 page inside a small frame. see here: http://www.fuzzytapes.com/?portfolio=6

I’m just pasting your code into the ’”text” box in my portfolio item. That’s right yeah? Bearing in mind i’ve not yet been able to update any of the .php files as required for step 2.

I’m getting there!! I’ll keep plugging away in the mean time…

SwiftIdeas

3 – replace the ” instances as they are incorrectly formatted in what you pasted.

- Ed

jordanpcraig

Ah, that’s it pretty much working now, and i have control over the width. The height of the frame is tiny though. I experimented with code to try get control over that too, but to no avail. Can you advise?

Still getting this “Service Temporarily Unavailable” page when i try to update functions.php though i can update any other .php file. Any idea why this is?

SwiftIdeas

Use this code and set the height within:

<div style="width:60%;margin: 0 auto;"><iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/cU0Trxix_5U” style="width:100%;" height="400px" allowfullscreen=”” frameborder=”0”></iframe></div>

No idea, try searching google. I found this – http://wordpress.org/support/topic/error-service-temporarily-unavailable

Either that, or edit via FTP.

- Ed

jordanpcraig

Ed, you’re a genius! That’s all working now :-D The service error was a problem with my Dreamhost security settings.

Slider looks great. I added hspace: 25%; to the css so that it is centred as well.

Thanks so much!

Jordan

Hello, Congratulations for the amazing inspiration. Is that possible to have blog posts in the homepage with the portfolio style from the demo? Regards, Guga

SwiftIdeas

Thanks for the kind words, we appreciate it :)

Unfortunately not as standard, although you could do this with a custom template and copy the styles, just changing what post type the template uses.

Is it possible to set the zoom level to the map? And what about the coordinates?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there!

If you go to /js/functions.js.php, you can find the map JS starting on line 274. The zoom can be set on line 279:

zoom: 15,

and if you want to set the coordinates directly, you can set them on line 277:

var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(mapLat, mapLong);

Hope that helps!

- Ed

phoenixweiss

Thanks! But is it possible to add this as a feature to admin panel in next update? )

Sure, we’ll add zoom option to the update list :)

sorry if this issue has been brought up already, but when i scale my site down to smaller sizes, either by dragging the browser window smaller, or viewing on a mobile device, there is a good amount of empty space off to the right side that can be seen by scrolling to the right, my question is how do i remove the extra empty space on smaller formats of my site, for reference my site is p-jalowski.com

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Apologies, seems to be an issue with the css. Please remove the statement on line 972 in style.css:

#footer-widgets .two-thirds {
width: 620px;
}

That will fix your issue.

Nice to see Theme Forest have added much better threaded comments.

I just have a quick question for you Ed, where can I locate this page? http://themes.swiftpsd.com/shared/promo_meta.png

Thanks, Brendan

That page is the portfolio detail page. When you add a portfolio item, you will find the meta options (seen in the left of the image) below the content editor.

Hi again Ed!

I have a main menu on my site, which has 2 items. This menu appears at the top of every page.

I’d like to have one page without this menu. The template for this page will be ‘Default Template’. Is there a way to remove the menu for this page?

It is worth noting that I do not use the ‘Default Template’ at any other time, so i’d be happy editing the code for ‘Default Template’ (although i cannot find a .php file for this)

-Jordan

SwiftIdeas

Sure. The easiest way would be to hide it via css based on the page id. For example, if the page id was 123, then this would be the custom css you would use:

.page-id-123 .nav-wrap { display: none; }

Hope that helps!

- Ed

jordanpcraig

Thanks for the response Ed!

What is the page id? The title? The slug?

SwiftIdeas

If you edit the page, you will find the ID in the page URL.

- Ed

jordanpcraig

Perfect, that worked. Thanks!

On a side note, my site has went all wonky. Fonts are wrong, text is overlapping, links are displayed wrongly, and my portfolio page is permanently stuck on 3 columns when it should be 4.

Any idea what has happened: http://www.fuzzytapes.com/

I’ve not changed the site in days, and suddenly its like this!

(note-it was like this before i added the page-id custom css)

SwiftIdeas

Did you install any plugins, or change any code? If you haven’t made any code changes, try re-uploading the theme.

- Ed

jordanpcraig

I installed the ‘Track That Stat’ plugin a while ago, but the site has worked fine since.

I deleted the code:

#footer-widgets .two-thirds {
width: 620px;
}

in style.css, but the site worked fine after that also. I have since re-added this code to style.css but still the wonky site.

I must have edited something somewhere, though i really can’t remember doing such a thing! Would you have any inclination what might cause this? What template would need to be edited to make a change like this – something which is happening on every page, even the 404 page? Or would a change somewhere in ‘style.css’ cause this?

I’ve made a few code changes, but most of them will have been suggestions from yourself, which I can copy/paste from our conversations above.

If I re-upload the theme, will all my pages be preserved? Portfolio items too? Or will I have to make them all again?

SwiftIdeas

Your content/theme options will be preserved. It looks like an issue with the style.css file, maybe try and validate it, or re-upload it?

- Ed

jordanpcraig

Is there any way to just re-upload the style.css file?

Perhaps you could send me the full original code in an email if that’s not too much hassle? That way i could just paste over what is there.

If you are OK with doing that, send it to: jordan.p.craig[at]gmail[dot]com

I’d appreciate this so much Ed!!

jordanpcraig

Ignore the above Ed, i was being stupid. I just copied and pasted from the style.css file in my original download folder… duh!

That’s everything back to normal now :-)

Thanks for your continuing support!

Hi,

awsome theme!!

my client needs to show a lot of work on the portfolio, is there a way to have more than 4 columns, more like thumbnails.. (7/8 items per lines)

thanks

Hi Loic,

Thanks!

Unfortunately 4 is the max number of columns, as most customers like to show off their work in it’s glory – a little hard when it’s as small as being in 8 columns!

Hey Ed,

Really nice theme, this is a bit of a specific request, but I was wondering if it would be possible to implement a responsive slider shortcode. Basically I want to be able to put a slider in one of the column shortcodes and have it fill the column.

For example [one_half] [slide_one]<img src="#" />[/slide_one] [slide_two]<img src="#" />[/slide_two] [/one_half] [one_half_last][/one_half_last]

I installed some plugins but with all of them you had to create the sliders in the backend instead of just using the normal wordpress upload (like in my example) and then they conflicted with the theme slider.

Anyway, I know it’s a bit of a long shot but any help would be appreciated!

Cheers

SwiftIdeas

Hey there!

You could probably do this by simply entering the flexslider html within the one_half shortcode. Like so:

[one_half]<div class="flexslider">
<ul class="slides">
<li>
<img src="#" />
</li>
</ul>
</div>[/one_half]

I haven’t tried it, but that should work! Hope that helps :)

Hi,

When I publish a page I receive this message:

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Hello,

Is it possible to remove the social media functionality from the sticky footer so that it only displays the grid and arrow functions? If so, is is possible to move the grid/arrows to the top of the page?

Excellent theme….thanks!! Adrianne

Hi Adrianne,

Glad you like it! :)

You can use the following css to remove the icons, but it’s not possible to move it to the top of the page.

#footer-social-icons {
