nice. does this use Cufon for the header fonts?

Veented

Hello,

Thank you! It’s font-face. But I’m going to add a Cufon Installation Guide to the documentation tommorow.

I updated my blog theme and created custom pages previously, but when I accessed Settings > Reading, I only see the old pages and not the templates as defined (Homepage with tagline, posts, etc).

How do I access the new templates?

Thanks!

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for purchasing my theme. :)

In the ‘Settings -> Reading’ menu you choose Pages not Templates. You can select a template by editing the page (Page Attributes box -> Template on the right side). So if your homepage is named, for example, ‘Index’, just pick the ‘Homepage’ template and then go to the ‘Settings -> Reading’ menu and set the ‘Index’ page as your front page.

Best regards,
Filip

When I install the theme, my wp install breaks and starts throwing out file_get_contents() errors. I’ve tried both install methos, and the same thing happens every time. Do you know what might be causing this? Thanks!

Veented

Hello Hallfire,

Thank you for your purchase, I truly appreciate it. :)

Looks like your server has the ‘file_get_contents()’ disabled. You may try contacting your hosting provider or just send me an FTP login data through my Profile Page so I could install it for you the alternative way. I’m going to include that way with the documentation in the next update.

Best regards,
Filip

Hi Tauris,

Thank you for the quick response! Love the theme BTW , it’s beautiful and well documented. I can enable file_get_contents() on my server (1and1) by downgrading to php4, but I would prefer not to do that. Is there any way you could create a version that uses cURL instead? Can you tell me more about the alternative install, or provide some instructions on how I can install a working version myself? Feel free to contact me through my profile page directly. I am under a bit of a time crunch on this project, so I appreciate your timely help.

Thanks!

Veented

Hello again,

Thank you for your kind words, I truly appreciate them!

Just sent you a message with the file_get_contents() replaced by cURL.

Best regards,
Filip

Took me a while to realize that tim-thumb can’t work on externally hosted images, I have to upload them. That’s annoying…

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for purchasing my theme. I’ve got some good news for you. :)

TimThumb can fetch images from external sites, you just need to configure them. To do that, simply open the ‘timthumb.php’ file located in the /includes/ folder of the Purity theme and find those lines:
if(! isset($ALLOWED_SITES)){
    $ALLOWED_SITES = array (
            'flickr.com',
            'picasa.com',
            'img.youtube.com',
            'upload.wikimedia.org',
            'photobucket.com',
            'imgur.com',
            'imageshack.us',
            'tinypic.com'
    );
}

As you may guess, just add the domain where the image is stored as an excuse.

Hi Dear, wel done!The theme looks great! Fyi,Unfortunately the sortable function of the demo into portfolio seems doesn’t work! I tested it in 3 different browser. Cheers,

Mr_Pa

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for your warm words. :)

And could yoube more specific, please? Do you mean the portolio on the Live Preview version or the one after importing the demo content? I tested it in all browsers I mentioned as ‘compatible’ and everything works fine for me.

Best regards,
Filip

mr_pa

Yep Filp, i’m referring to the live preview! I tested right now again and still doesn’t work. (chrome, safari, firefox – latest versions – ). It regards just the sortable function non to the entire portfolio that works lika a charm!

I don’t know what going wrong :-(

Veented

That’s really odd. So when you click one of the filter menus nothing happens?

Yep! that’s it! :-(

Veented

The ThemeForest Top Frame might cause the problem. Please close it or just visit the direct link.

Hello, I need to know the best way to implement my own font into your heme without messing up the code, can you give me a hint in the right direction?

and also, where can I find the code for the preview pages on your site? Many Thanx,

Alex

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for purchasing my template, I really appreciate it!

The best way to implement your own font is described in the Theme Documentation. You will also find there an Installation Guide (with an alternative screencast version) that explains how to easily import the demo content. :)

Best Regards,
Filip

Hello,

I think this theme is head-and-shoulders above the other Themeforest themes I have tried, in that is so easy to set up out of the box. I don’t understand why more people haven’t downloaded it yet. So many ‘minimalist’ themes are very complicated to get up and running. And the default design is great as well! Great job.

If I may, I have two questions regarding customization:

- Where can I find the background “Pattern 2” and “Pattern 3” used in the preview?

- Also, is it possible to get the bottom half of my logo to float over my slider, instead of pushing it further down the page and creating a large space between the navigation and slider?

Here is my url, so you can see what I am talking about: http://www.remcopress.com/test/

Thanks again, I am very excited to have found this theme! Tony

Veented

Hello Tony,

Thank you for such a nice words from you, I truly appreciate them! I’m really glad that you like it. :)

Answering your questions:
  1. You will find all backgrounds used in the Live Preview version in the /img/backgrounds/ folder
  2. If I understood you well, here is what you can do. Open the ‘style.css’ file and find the ’#header .logo’ rule. Replace it’s ‘float:left;’ with ‘position:absolute;’ attribute. Then you may want to remove the divider between the header and the slider section. To do that, simply remove the ‘border:1px dotted #ddd’ attribute from the ’#header .inner’ rule.

Best Regards,
Filip

Thanks for the reply about timthumb, that’s great. Now what I really want is for portfolio category pages to display without the project-type pagination, ex.

www.example.com/project-type/wedding

I need

www.example.com/wedding

Is that at all possible, maybe a plugin?

Veented

Hello again,

This plugin seems to do what you want: http://bit.ly/jiQoK

Just install it and then just “edit any post, page, tag or category to set a custom permalink”.

Best Regards,
Filip

myhrcat Purchased

I tried the plugin. After I type in the permalink I want for that project-type and hit update, it doesn’t do anything, the page is still permalinked the way it was before. Did it work for you on this theme?

Sorry, I should have replied to my original post, I need

www.example.com/project-type/wedding

to be

www.example.com/wedding

I’ve been adding photos to the portfolio and separating them in project types, like wedding, portrait, etc. For SEO , I need that slug removed, “project-type” otherwise it’s useless for me to make those pages, since google will get a 404 error on www.example.com/project-type/

Maybe removing the slug is impossible, in that case, is there a shortcode or something to add the category view to a page? Then I just make a page called www.example.com/wedding and forget the other thing.

if nothing else, how can I rename the slug “project-type”?

Thanks for the email. You really went above and beyond to find the solution for me. The SEO Ultimate plugin had the option I needed, thank you for taking your time to help me!

Nice theme. My slide is spinning and spinning without showing any images. Also, I can’t get my page background to be anything other than white.

Veented

Hello there,

Could you please send me link to your website? You may also send me the login information to your WordPress through my User Page so I could debug it for you just after I get back home later.

Please help! Nothing but the logo and the main menu is on the homepage. I enabled the tagline and put some content in the Homepage Custom Content. No recent work, posts or the footer widgets should be shown. I would appreciate your help. Thank you in advance, Joerg.

Hi.

I purchased it yesterday. Love it.

I noticed something : I host it on linux (case sensitive), and the dark.css is not correctly called… Dark.css and dark.css is not the same! It took me some times to find the problem.

Hope it will help someone else..

thanks

This theme is absolutely spectacular. Extremely functional, great documentation, and well architected code.

I had a few small issues setting up my site, and the seller was very helpful and responsive. Definitely went above and beyond my expectations for a $35 sale.

Highly, highly recommend.

Hello Empethi,

Thank you so much for such warm words, I truly appreciate them. :) I’m really glad that you are satisfied with the purchase, I wish you all the best with your website!

Hi,

I really love this theme. I’m curious about something though…

Is it possible to make the homepage static and just have the main header menu, the slider, and then the absolute bottom footer with the all rights reserved and social networking links?

So essentially, not have the recent work, from the blog, why choose purity, and the “purity” sections underneath….

Veented

Hello Matty,

That’s definitely achieveable. Just check the Theme Options: Homepage demo to see what can be configured. You may also disable the footer widget area in the ‘Footer’ tab. And the ‘Purity’ sections underneath is just a custom page content built with shortcodes.

Best Regards,
Filip

Hi again. I would like to know if something can be done for french fonts… É é à and what so ever looks very strange, especially in the home tagline…

thanks!

Veented

Hello there,

The default font ‘League Gothic’ doesn’t support those glyphs. However, you may easily use the ‘Steelfish’ font that looks really familiar. You can get it on FontSquirrel Here and install by following the Font Changing Guide included with the Theme Documentation.

Best Regards,
Filip

This might not be possible, but is there a way to exclude certain posts from showing up in the recent work section of the homepage? Thanks for the fantastic support so far. I’m all done other than adding in older content that was on my old site. The compliments just keep pouring in from clients and friends, you ROCK !

Veented

Hi there,

Thank you for your warm words! :)

It’s absolutely possible. You will have to make a little change in the code. Open the template-home.php file and find this line:

query_posts('post_type=portfolio&posts_per_page='.$query_count);

Replace it with this:

query_posts(array('post__not_in' => array(98,125),'post_type' => 'portfolio','posts_per_page' => $query_count));

Where ‘98’ and ‘125’ are the IDs of posts that you want to exclude from showing up. You will find the post ID in your admin dashboard by hovering your mouse over the post title (the ID will appear on the address bar).

All the best,
Filip

Lovely Theme – thinking of purchasing – does it use timthumb.php or wordpress featured image?

Hello there,

Thank you. It’s TimThumb. :)
