Hi!

Let me first thank you for creating an awesome theme! I have a few things i’d like to edit, I was hoping you could point me in the right direction. I’m not a great coder, so… :)

1. I can’t find the line that creates the big title, it’s a bit large for my taste so I’d like to make it smaller. Line 1063 in style.css is not working for me. 2. Also the text leading (space between sentances) is a bit wide, where can I set this more narrow? 3. Is there any way of creating a stroke around the main content?

Thanks a lot in advance!

SwiftIdeas

1) You can change the font size in the theme options panel :) 2) Sorry, do you mean line-height? 3) Unfortunately this would likely mess with the responsive grid, so would take more work than just a simpel change.

1: Thanks, totally missed that. 2: Yes I do, thanks :) 3: too bad! Thanks for the quick reply btw

SwiftIdeas

2) You can change it by adding the following to the custom css box within theme options (and change the value):

#impact-text h1 {
line-height: 86%;
}

One last question: how do I get rid of the sticky, scrolling footer? (I hope you know what I mean). Visitors can click this to scroll portfolio items, which for me is not relevant. Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Add the following to the custom css box within theme options:

#sticky-footer { display: none!important; }

I am receiving an error on a the blog page, and I am hoping you can help me solve the issue. When you go to the blog page at : http://johannesdam.dk/blog/ and then press to look at the blog posts on PAGE 2, it takes you instead to the latest blog entry. ??? Hopefully you can help me shed some light on the error. thanks in advance.

SwiftIdeas

Hmm.. Do you have the posts page set in Settings > Reading. If so please disable this. Could you possibly send us a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com so we could take a look?

Thanks,

Hi, thanks for creating such a minimalistic template and making it easy to use. My purchase was quite satisfying :)

I have one question about my nav menu…the menu flashes “menu” before the page loads (same thing happens when reloading as well). I was wondering if this can be fixed? Thanks!

My page: http://linayang.com/wordpress

SwiftIdeas

Thanks for the kind words, glad you’re enjoying it!

Did you remove the mobile navigation? Seems like you left the “selected-option” element. You should remove this in header.php as it isn’t needed if you don’t have the mobile menu.

I actually have two more questions on the same link provided…

1. I was wondering why my images are not aligning (full width) to the sticky footer when I click on my thumbnail to view sample work?

2. In mobile view on an android and iphone, the images are restrained to one area, is there anyway the user can pinch zoom? Can I disable this function?

Hope you can help me on these minor issues :p Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I have a white bar a the top of my website with some light grey text that I can’t read. It looks like an error message.

How can I get rid of it?

Thank you,

you can see it at : http://www.musicsquare-pro.com/

SwiftIdeas

Looks like some code from a plugin, or something that you’ve edited? The text reads:

add_filter(‘private_title_format’, ‘removePrivatePrefix’); add_filter(‘protected_title_format’, ‘removePrivatePrefix’);

function removePrivatePrefix(){ return ’%s’; }

- Ed

So what should i do, because it doesn t ring any bell… should i deactivate all the plugin as a test?

SwiftIdeas

Yes, please do that first to see.

sure but where should I add it. if it is in the style.css, it is not working

SwiftIdeas

What are you trying to add?

- Ed

Default-user
fmoleslas Purchased

I tried to deactivate them all. And I still have this white bar

SwiftIdeas

Please try re-installing the theme from fresh then. Did you edit any of the files?

- Ed

I remember I tried to remove the “private” prefix for my private articles by adding this code in the header : ”<?php

add_filter(‘private_title_format’, ‘removePrivatePrefix’); add_filter(‘protected_title_format’, ‘removePrivatePrefix’);

function removePrivatePrefix($format) { return ’%s’; }”

Do you know an other solution. I know it is not your job but it would really help me.

thank you

SwiftIdeas

Add the code to functions.php instead, that is where it should be :)

Hello, I’m considering a purchase but need to know if a gallery page can contain both video and photo thumbnails on the same page.

To rephrase, i need a client page that has both video and photo thumbnail images that can be clicked and viewed as isolated images.

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You could add this within the content body of the full width layout, but not where the images are on the left and text on the right.

Hope that helps :)

On the edit page screen, scroll down to find the meta options – here you can increase the number shown per page.

Can someone tell me how to add in a youtube video to my blog post? I’m sure it’s an obvious answer, but I’m having trouble finding it.

Much appreciated!

Hi there,

What you want to do is scroll down to the post meta options, and provide the URL in the box – http://cl.ly/OJWp

I’m not able to create space between my paragraphs in a blog post. I’ve tried just hitting return in the Visual and placing

in the HTML. It doesn’t help. Is there something I should change in the stylesheet? Or is this a wordpress issue?

Thank you!

SwiftIdeas

What version of WordPress do you have? Is this in the blog post itself, or the excerpt?

Hi Ed,

What can I do to make the title text much smaller than this on it’s individual text page? Obviously this is too big but the it fits ok on the front page. So I don’t want to make it shorter. I just need to make it smaller, so perhaps it fits on one line

Hi Ed,

I love your theme, great work!

Portfolio / Detail Type “Gallery”: Can I add a caption under an image for portfolio detail type “gallery”? I would like the caption to appear by default on the page (i.e. I don’t want to click on the image to display it with lightbox functionality). Hover over the image to display the caption would be fine too. Right now, I can only write text for the entire portfolio after scrolling through all the images.

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.

thanks for the swift reply. no problem. i can insert the images as individual items in the rich text field instead and add links and captions. however, how do i keep the images 940px and how do i get rid of the white background? see last item on same page.

SwiftIdeas

Add the following to the custom css box within theme options:

.wp-caption {
border: 0;
background: transparent;
}

thank you! Please help with one more thing: I need to figure out why the image background in the post does not match the site background. both are #1f1f1f but the gray in the posted image appears darker. why would the background appearance for the posted image change to #181818?

SwiftIdeas

The only reason I can think for the image changing colour would be the way you’re exporting it. Nothing in the theme would do that.

Can the portfolio images be opened in a lightbox rather than going to a post page?

Hi there,

Unfortunately not, only the item page.

Are there updates available for Punch theme? Im having some issues with the portfolio and function.php.

Hi Andy,

What troubles are you having?

Novsun.com/work is timing out, i turned off errors, but they were about function.php

SwiftIdeas

What were the errors? That would help finding out what issue you’re having.

Do you have any plugins enabled?

- Ed

Default-user
novsun Purchased

The site is just loading very slowly and the portfolio page times out. I have deactivated most of the plugins to test to see if that had an effect.That made no noticeable change. Im not sure how to turn the errors back on. I can have my dev look at it tomorrow to give you more details.

SwiftIdeas

Ok, let us know and we’ll be happy to help.

This from my hosting co: “We have tried disabling several plugins and changing themes. It appears we have narrowed it down to a theme issue because it loads much faster after switching to a different theme. Contact your theme developer to see if there is an update to the theme.”

SwiftIdeas

That’s a bit of an invalid reply, as the other theme likely doesn’t have the same setup in terms of content (portfolio items etc.)

Have you tried setting up a caching plugin such as WP Super Cache? The longest wait time in the load of your site seems to be the images in your portfolio items.

- Ed

Default-user
novsun Purchased

Even if we only look at the home page, which has no additional features like the portfolio the load times are 2 seconds for the default theme versus 12 seconds with punch.

I have uninstalled the theme, reinstalled wp and reinstalled 1.4 of the theme with no change to load times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My only other option at this point is to redesign the site or choose a different theme.

SwiftIdeas

Checking the speed test here, it shows that almost 10 seconds are waiting at the domain – http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/cO4c6O/http://www.novsun.com/

There must be something at your host that is causing this, we run the exact same version that you have on our demo site.

- Ed

Default-user
novsun Purchased

Yeah I noticed that as well. But when I activate the default wp template the 10 second load time disappears. Thanks for your help any ideas are appreciated.

SwiftIdeas

I can imagine that’s true, but the default theme contains almost nothing. Have you tried installing the WP Super Cache plugin?

- Ed

Default-user
novsun Purchased

Yes, I tried WP Super Cache Plugin, it helps with the files but not with the 10 seconds of “waiting”.

I tried some other themes, they load fine. Oh well… guess its time to move on.

SwiftIdeas

Apologies that I couldn’t have been more helpful. I’ve honestly checked everything I can think of, but there is no indication as to what is causing the slowdown, and it’s not occurred for anyone else but you.

I would have hoped your host could have been more help in indicating the problem, but unfortunately not.

Is it possible to password protect specific pages/posts within a portfolio?

Thanks!

Hi there,

This is standard WordPress functionality. It might require a few lines of code to add it to the portfolio, but happy to help with that.

Hi,

Amazing theme, have had some many good comments about it. One question, is there a way to feature the social media icons in the header (say under the menu links) instead/as well as in the footer?

My site is www.lucykierans.com

Thanks, Lucy

SwiftIdeas

Hi Lucy,

Thanks for the kind words!

Having social icons in the header isn’t support as default, and you’d need to edit the header.php to manually include them.

Hi there! I love this theme and am considering buying it— just a question: does the theme use a custom post type or is it possible to pull the portfolio items from the existing wordpress categories? I would really dislike having to manually move posts to a custom post type :/

Thanks!

Hi there,

You could try using this plugin? http://wordpress.org/plugins/convert-post-types/

I am really loving this theme! It is very well documented and super easy to use. My only question so far is about fonts. How can I include additional Google Web fonts that you don’t show listed in your fonts dropdown?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Glad you like it!

You can add extra in /includes/admin/functions/functions.options.php. The array starts on line 45.

Hi…sorry, it seems I have one other question about fonts…have you noticed that Firefox double-bolds the impact font when viewed from a Mac? Any thoughts?

SwiftIdeas

I don’t see this here. I think it depends on the font, try a few out?

- Ed

No worries, I set font-weight to normal. Problem solved!

I am tried to register for support through SwiftIdeas’s forum with no luck. No emails come after I submit the form. Anyway, I was hoping someone may have already identified some issues with the theme’s portfolio navigation in Internet Explorer. It seems like in IE9 the grid and nav arrows in the footer do not display. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Chris,

Have you checked your junk folder?

Just checked our demo and seems to work perfectly fine here. Can you see if you get the same thing on our demo?
