Hi Filip -

Thank you for the outstanding and ongoing support. 2 quick questions for you. -The first, last week I published my first blog post since switching over to Purity. The post published onto my homepage without a problem as well as to my “blog” page, but I can’t get the post to show under my blog tab as the “digital” category I created for the post. I probably just need to check some box in WordPress to get “digital” to appear as a category, but I’m stumped. If you navigate to my website, here:

http://www.andrewraymondgraham.com/ and levitate over the “blog” tab you will see a couple of categories but “digital” isn’t among them. However, if you click on the blog, you will see my latest post with “digital” as the category it is filed under. - The second question, on my “about” page I have a strange grey outline behind some of the text under the heading “A Few of the Many Things I Bring to the Table.” You can check it out here: http://www.andrewraymondgraham.com/about-2/ I may have screwed up some of the HTML when trying to fill in my own text.

Any and all insights appreciated!

Best, Andrew

Hello Andrew,

I’m not really sure about the Blog issue but can’t you just add the ‘digital’ category to the dropdown menu via the Appearance -> Menus tab?

As for the About page issue, you have just reached the width limit of the Tabbed content shortcode. I’d suggest you to simply change it to Toggles. :)

Filip

For some reason all the headers on my Purity website are not formatted anymore. Any idea why this happened? I haven’t changed anything.

Hello Melody,

I’m not really sure what headers do you mean. And the website seems to look just fine. Did you manage to get it fixed?

Sorry, but it must have been a problem with the server. Immediately before that there was a problem accessing my control panel and then the font had defaulted to something else. There were a few other problems but they seemed to have righted themselves each time I accessed the site. I checked and it looks fine now. Thanks anyway!!

Hey Filip! HELP ?!... on your sample website, the ‘blog’ page displays all your blog posts in a neat order. it shows one short introductory paragraph to the blog. when users click on the blog, it then opens up the entire post in a page itself.

on our website, we can’t seem to display our blog page like yours? it shows the ENTIRE post, for each post. it looks cluttered and messy, and there’s way too much text.

HELP ?!

Thank you in advance : )

One more question : ) How do you have your Blog preview picture to be the full width of the screen, as it shows on your purity template?

On our blog, the date and comments is left of the picture. However we’d love to have a larger picture, with the date and comments on the left of the text and underneath the picture. http://www.joonfilms.com.au/blog/

Thank you in advance : )

Hey Filip! We’re having trouble uploading, saving or deleting any posts on our wordpress. Our hosting providor says there may be a problem with the template? I’m sure it’s something you can easily help us with : )

We are constantly receiving this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_option_tree() in /home/starta/public_html/wp-content/themes/purity/functions/purity-shortcodes.php on line 112

Help?! We hope to hear from you as soon as you can, as we are about to publish our quarterly e-newsletter, and we need to publish the posts online that correspond with the articles in the e-newsletter.

Thank you again in advance : )

Hello there,

You are welcome. :)

The post thumbnail image (the one that appears above the excerpt and comments/date boxes) is based on the picture that you have uploaded into the Image-1 (thumbnail) field. If you haven’t got one, just add one. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Thank you Filip!

I’ve added the same photo in Image-1 thumbnails (as we had it only in the portfolio box), however the image is still the same size in the full blog page. comments and date still on the left.

our images are all over 600px x 200px.

do you have any other suggestions? should our image sizes be larger?

Veented

Are you sure that you have uploaded those images into the Image-1 (thumbnail) field?

Default-user

Hey Filip!

We’ve worked it out! Our settings for the blog were “right side bar 2”, instead of “right side bar 1”.. so it’s all good!

now we are going to resize all the photos to the default one you have on your template of 662×220.

thanks Filip for all your help!

PS – the twitter problem we had is now gone – looks like one of those plugins was causing the problem.

we LOVE your template and are so happy you are doing so well, we think everyone should use it!

gracias, joon films

Hi Filip.

I have a question about a feature:

In

Purity > Theme Options > General

there is a box for:
"A space above the page navigation expressed in pixels. Edit it's value to center the menu vertically while using your own logo image."  

Can you tell me when this does exactly. And what values I enter?

Thanks!

Veented

Hello there,

Certainly! It’s a margin between the main navigation bar and the top of the site: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6402753/neutrino/nav.png

Hi Filip,

Also, I have a tagline for this page, but it is not showing up. Can you please help?

Thank you

Veented

Hello there,

You may modify the font color by opening the style.css file and editing the “color” attribute of the “body { ... }” rule. As for the tagline, could you please send me the page URL ?

And please don’t forget about the “Reply” button so we can keep things a bit more organized here. :)

Hi Filip, this is where the tagline should be showing up: http://www.travelgrom.com/street-scene-videos

Hello there,

But of course. Just use the Vimeo shortcode and insert it into the page content of your Homepage. :)

Tauris, Love this theme thanks again. For the last little while the tweet div doesnt seem to be working, has there been a change to the auth for this? www.pidginyvr.com

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for the kind words, I truly appreciate it!

Yes, I’ve updated the Twitter widget with the latest script version. Just redownload the theme files and update the /functions/widget-twitter.php file. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

sorry, can you give me a better navigation that described below and what needs to be replaced, when i load your twitter widget in your sample code it doesnt work either

Veented

Hello again,

Just redownload the theme files from ThemeForest and replace the old /functions/widget-twitter.php file with a new one. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

sorry Tauris, maybe I’m missing something but there is no /functions/widget-twitter.php in your folder structure when i download. If it helps I am not using the wordpress version, all twitter functions are contained is js twitter.js, which i did a diff on and its the same as it was from my original version.

Veented

Oh, I’m really sorry. Didn’t notice it was the HTML version you’ve purchased. In this case please update your /js/twitter.js file with these: http://bit.ly/V2dGuy :)

Best Regards,
Filip

Default-user

sorry Tauris for the fragmented responses, I have been quite busy on this side, I updated the JS as per your advice and still nothing.

Default-user

I take that back figuired it out, thanks Tauris

Hi Tauris…

I’m trying to edit the NivoSlider on my Purity theme. I want to eliminate the bullets that appear at the bottom left of the slider and close up the space between the bottom of the slider and homepage tagline. I’ve tried to go in and edit the CSS but I can’t seem to make this change. Can you advise me on this?

Many thanks!

Coalition

Veented

Hello again,

To disable the bullet navigation, please open the style.css file and add the “display:none;” attribute to the ”.slider .nivo-controlNav { ... }” rule. As for the spacing, it’s the “margin-bottom” attribute of the ”.slider .nivoSlider { ... }” rule. :)

Regards,
Filip

Thanks for your help Filip. I was able to remove the bullet navigation but the space between the bottom of the slider and the homepage tagline does not change when I change the “margin-bottom” value.

.slider .nivoSlider { background:#fff url(img/loader.gif) no-repeat 50% 50%; margin-bottom:30px; }

ie: I changed the “30” to “12” but nothing changed on the website.

Cheers,

Coalition

Hello again,

Please don’t forget about the “Reply” button so we can keep things a bit more organized here. :)

As for the issue, please open the /includes/slider.php file and remove the dividing line HTML tag.

Hello,

How do you get the portfolio items to return to their original positions when selecting to view all? There are always a few that get shuffled out of place and I can’t figure out why. It seems to be present in the Live Preview as well. Thanks! Love the template!

Mike

Veented

Hello Mike,
