Hi! I’m 1 moment away to purchase this beautiful theme. Just 1 question: If I install Infinite-scroll plugin will it work for the portfolio thumbs? thanks

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for the interest and and kind words!

As for your question, I’m sorry but I’ve never tested the plugin with my theme so I cannot guarantee it will work perfectly fine. :)

Hi Filip.

Have a question regarding the sidebar in the individual portfolio pages. Whenever I try to use a heading font at the top of the sidebar (as an additional title) it seems to add this to the code to the page

and as a result there is a small gap at the top of the sidebar. Any ideas?

Best, Hanan

Whoops forgot the comment box allowed for HTML.

It adds a paragraph at the top of the sidebar

Hi Tauris, Worked it out. Was to do with using square brackets in the coding. Sorry, im such a noob with html. Thanks for kindly putting up with all this! Hanan

Veented

Hello Hanan,

I’m really glad you have figured it out yourself! And thank you for leaving the comment. :)

How do you have static video static homepage? Where is the option for that?

Veented

Hello there,

Just insert the video embed code into the “Homepage Custom Content” via the Theme Options / Homepage tab. Please also check the Theme Documentation file for an example. :)

Hi,

Where are the “Project types”? It’s in the documentation, but it’s not out there in the panel.

Thanks in advance! Kin

Veented

Hello there,

They are called “Portfolio Categories” now since the big theme update, I’ve just forgotten to update their name in the docs. :)

Is there a way to add some introductory text to a page with Portfolio template? Whenever I give a page that template, the introductory text I write for the page no longer appears.

Hello there,

It’s of course possible. Just drop me a private message and I’ll guide you through. :)

Hello Filip,

I’m having an issue with the sidebar on a site I’m updating for a friend. The sidebar is stuck and doesn’t move when the window is resized. This problem seems to have appeared out of nowhere…help! You can view the site at http://www.agnessamour.com/diary/

Thank you! Sean

Veented

Hello Sean,

I can see that you have modified the sidebar’s styling and gave it an absolute positioning which breaks the layout. Please bring it back to original (float right). :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Hey Filip the sidebar is doing the same thing it was before – doesn’t respond to the size of the window. I fixed it as you instructed, which worked for a couple of weeks, but now the styling is mysteriously back to absolute positioning without me applying any changes. I’ve changed it back to float right, but it isn’t taking effect. So strange. Any ideas??

Thanks! Sean

Veented

Hello Sean,

There must be a cause for that, nothing happens just like that. Did you install any plugins? Did you update WordPress?

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Nope. No new plugins or updates. It literally stopped working overnight. :(

Veented

Hello,

Please send me your WP login information through my Profile Page and I’ll take a closer look at the issue.

Is there a way to open the footer social media icons in a newwindow?

Veented

Hello there,

But of course. Just open the footer.php file and edit this line:

echo '<a href="'.get_option_tree(" social_=""><img src="'.get_template_directory_uri().'/img/social/social_'.$v.'.png" alt="" /></a>';

to:

echo '<a target="_blank" href="'.get_option_tree(" social_=""><img src="'.get_template_directory_uri().'/img/social/social_'.$v.'.png" alt="" /></a>';

Best Regards,
Filip

Default-user

i can’t see that

Veented

Oops, excuse me. That was before the update!

It’s now this:

echo '<a href="'.get_option_tree(" social_="" class="social-'.$v.'"></a>';

to:

echo '<a target="_blank" href="'.get_option_tree(" social_="" class="social-'.$v.'"></a>';

Hi there,

Firstly, great theme.

I’m having a little trouble getting my permalinks set up correctly, and also having a few “page not found” issues which i think is related.

I have a static page called “portfolio” which has links to four sub pages with custom galleries in them.

I also have a page called “shop” with two sub pages, “hire-me” and “buy-me” which are both using a portfolio template to display items from the in built purity custom post type portfolio section. These items have a slide show a small description and a link to the items page on etsy.

Everything displays correctly up untill i click on an item on the buy-me page then the link goes to “website.com/portfolio/item-title” where i get a “page not found” 404.

Also my blog page is “website.com/blog” but when i click on an item it goes to “website.com/2013/07/hello-world/”

Is it possible for me to edit the theme to produce these three different permalinks

blog posts appear with /blog/ : website.com/blog/2013/07/hello-world/

Shop posts (purity portfolio) appear like this with /shop/ and /category/ website.com/shop/hire-me/post-title/

Many thanks in advance,

Please let me know if i can be any clearer,

Jonny

ps. my permalink structure is like this: / year / monthnum / postname /

Veented

Hello Jonny,

Thank you. :)

As for the issue, it’s not a theme side issue but your .htaccess file. For start, please try changing your permalinks (Settings / Permalinks) back to default and see if it works then.

Filip

Veented

Hi again,

I’ve tested it under my Chrome, Opera and Firefox browsers and it works just fine for me.. You can see that I’ve just added “bla” part.

Which button do you press when you try saving the changes? Please try both “Publish” and “Salva Bozza”.

Regards,

Hi Filip, i have tested in Chrome and Firefox, on Mac, Windows7 and WindowsXP and it does’t work. After 60 second when i write the post both buttons “Publish” and “Salva Bozza” don’t work

Hi Filip,

I’m having an issue with some images being ever so slightly pixelated. It seems to only occur on the blog archives page, with the featured image of each post. But when you click on the post and look at the same image on the single blog post page, the image is totally fine. Any ideas??

Site: www.agnessamour.com/diary

Thank you!

Veented

Hello there,

Please open the functions.php file and change this part:

$width = 494;
$height = 200;

to:

$width = 662;
$height = '';

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Hey Filip sorry to be a bother, but the only reference to $width or $height in functions.php is this:

function post_thumb($width, $height){

global $post;
$thumb = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'pp_image-1', true);        
echo get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/timthumb.php?src=' . $thumb . '&h=' . $height .'&w=' . $width .'&zc=1';

}

Help! Thanks, Sean

Veented

Hello Sean,

Please update your theme to the latest version following this guide:

Hi Filip, Is there a way we could have a thumbnail photo in the blog section in Recent Posts without having the actual photo at the top of the post? At the moment, if i upload the first image, this will automatically go into the Recent Posts but also on the blog Cheers

Veented

Hello there,

But of course, just check the “Just thumbnail” checkbox under the first image field. Is that what you mean? :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

I dont see a ‘Just Thumbail’. I mean in the Post/ ‘Edit Post’ section. For each new post in the blog, there is the ‘Post Thumbail’ but if i use this, it will also add the photo on the blog post (and none of the template 1, 2 and 3 allow to remove this first photo)? Many thanks

Veented

Okay, I see what you mean now. You may disable it manually by opening the specific blog template file, like /templates/blog/right-sidebar-1.php and removing this part:

<?php if(get_post_meta($post->ID, 'pp_image-1', true)){ blog_index_gallery(1); } ?>

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Thanks Filip, will try soon. Cheers,A

Hello Filip, great theme! Two questions: 1. is there a way to get a blog post with the tag “portfolio” to autopopulate into the portfolio page? (i.e. can the blog serve as a resource for the portfolio’s text and images?) 2. is there any particular reason that I’ve activated the google map but my about page still says “This will be replaced with the Google Map?”

thanks again and great work on the theme! Best, Dan

Veented

Hello Dan,

Thank you. :)

1. I’m sorry but no.

2. It could be either a plugin conflict (please try deactivating all you’ve got installed and test it again) or your host/server does not support the cURL tool (in this case try contacting your host provider).

Filip

Hi Filip,

How would I make the navigation in this theme fixed instead of having it scroll with the page? I know that the basic solution is to use

position: fixed

and
height: auto
on .nav.

However, my site has some added complexity: it has 8 top-level navigation options, so the navigation menu can go onto more than one line depending on how wide the screen is. The main content is covered up by the nav bar. I’m not sure how to get it to always show (with a consistent margin/padding) since the nav bar is not always the same height.

Here’s the site that I’m talking about: http://gospellifebowie.com (still under construction).

Edit: another question: How to I get rid of the horizontal offset between submenus in the navigation? When I mouse over my last navigation option on a wide screen, its submenu appears off to the right and causes a horizontal scroll bar to appear on the page.

Thanks, David

Veented

Hello David,

I’m really sorry but that will require some additional modification of the stylesheet and is beyond the scope of my free support.

As for your second question, it’s the “left” attribute of the ”.nav ul li ul { ... }” rule in the style.css file. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Hi all,

I think I have fixed this bug in my installation of Purity today. Here’s what I did to make sure the navigation displays cleanly at all widths:

@media screen and (min-width: 1200px)
{
    .logo
    {
        width: 15%;
        text-align: left;
        margin: 1em;
        padding: 0 !important;
    }

    .nav
    {
        max-width: 80%;
        margin: 1em;
    }
    .nav ul li
    {
        margin: 0 0.25em;
        padding: 0.125em;
        border-radius: 0.5em;
    }

    #main .inner
    {
        padding-top: 5em;
    }
}
@media screen and (max-width: 1199px) and (min-width: 1024px)
{
    .logo
    {
        width: 10%;
        text-align: left;
        margin: 1em;
        padding: 0 !important;
    }

    .nav
    {
        max-width: 87%;
        margin: 1em 0.125em !important;
        font-size: 0.5em; /* changes spacing but not the size of the ul li's */
    }
    .nav ul li
    {
        margin: 0 0.125em;
        padding: 0.125em 0.25em;
        border-radius: 0.5em;
    }

    #main .inner
    {
        padding-top: 5em;
    }    
}    
@media screen and (max-width: 1023px) and (min-width: 768px)
{
    .nav ul li ul {
        visibility: hidden !important;
    }
    #main-menu-navigation:
    {
        padding-bottom: 0.25em;
    }
    .inner {
        width: 100%;
    }

    .logo
    {
        width: 100%;
        margin: 1em 0 0 0;
        padding: 0 !important;
        text-align: center;
    }

    .nav
    {
        width: 96%; float: left !important;
        text-align: center;
        margin: 1em;
        padding: 0;
    }
    .nav ul li
    {
        margin: 0 !important;
        padding: 0.125em;
        border-radius: 0.25em;
        width: 25%;
        text-align: center;
    }

    #main .inner
    {
        padding-top: 11em;
    }    
}

@media screen and (min-width: 768px)
{
    .nav {
        margin: 1em;
    }
}
@media screen and (max-width: 767px)
{
    .logo
    {
        width: 100%;
        margin: 0 !important;
        padding: 0 3.5em;
        text-align: center !important;
    }
    .nav
    {
        width: 100%; /* .logo width + .nav width = 100%, except on mobile */
        margin: 1em;
    }
    .nav ul li
    {
        margin: 0 0.25em;
        padding: 0.25em 0.5em;
        border-radius: 0.25em;
    }
}

    /* I had 2 more media queries for mobile widths below and above 400px, for setting padding-top on #main .inner. */

Please note that some of the percentages are specific to my site’s menus.

Filip – Thanks for the other fix! The problem turned out to be happening because I am using Zurb Foundation 4.3 as the responsive framework in this theme. Its lists within lists are indented, so I just needed to turn that off and it was fixed.

Thanks, David

Hello David,

Hey there! Still loving this theme! I have a quick question. For some reason I can’t get my favicon to work. :/ It’s not showing up in the address bar or as an option on a phone when you bookmark it. Is there anything special that needs to be done? Thanks in advance!

Best, Rachael

Veented

Hello Rachael,

Thank you for the kind words, I’m glad you like the theme!

Did you upload your favicon via the Theme Options / General tab? If yes, does a preview image appear just below that field?

Regards,
Filip

Hi filip! Yeah, I uploaded the favicon via the Theme Options panel and the preview comes up just fine. Everything looks like it should work, which is why I thought I’d ask. Thanks so much for your help. Any insight you might have is really appreciated. Have a great night!

Good morning. Thanks again for getting back! I’ve tried a few different browsers and nothin’. The url is: http://wearesfs.com

Hey! Sorry for the delayed response! Things have been a bit hectic. Thank you so much for taking a look! The favicon does show up! Awesome! :)

I have one more issue that I’m hoping you can help with. On my Portfolio page, my work is displaying strangely and I’m not sure why. If you wouldn’t mind taking a look and letting me know how to fix the problem, I’d really appreciate it. The link is: www.wearesfs.com/our-work

Thank you so much for your time. Have a great day!

No worries! Nevermind! I figured it out! There is some kind of issue with the layout of the Four Column 2 option for portfolio pages. I changed the layout and everything is cool now. Thanks!

Veented

Hello Rachael,

Thank you for letting me know about this one! I’m really glad you have figured it out yourself. :)
