Hi Filip,

I successfully installed the new responsive Purity theme – thank you for your help with that.

Couple of small problems: (1) when my site (http://www.abramczykstudio.com/) is viewed on iphone 5, the top menu converts to “Select page:” drop down but there are no items in the drop down. How do I fix this?

(2) Also the header logo png does not display in mobile

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best, Michael

Veented

Hello Michael,

You are very welcome. :)

1. Just visit the Appearance / Menus tab and assign your custom menu to “Navigation” location.

2. All you have to do is upload a higher resolution version via the Theme Options / Retina menu. :)

All the best,
Filip

Hi,

I just bought and installed the Purity WP theme from themeforest, and I’m having a couple of problems.

First, when I try to change the font settings in the Dashboard (by going to Purity>Theme Options>Typography) , none of the changes I make are applied to the website. (And yes, I always click “Save All Changes” after I make any changes!) This includes all changes of font and font size. Nothing has any effect.

Second, I have the same problem on the Theme Options> Appearance panel, when I try to change background color, hover color, or theme color. Even after I click “Save All Changes,” no change is put into effect. The only optionsin the Appearance panel that do respond to my changes are the “Light” and “Dark” buttons under “Theme Skin.”

Can you help me fix these problems?

Thank you,

Bob Stillman

Veented

Hello Bob,

Thank you for the purchase. :)

It’s probably a problem with the style-dynamic.php file not being loaded properly by your server. Can you please send me your WP login information through my Profile Page so I can further investigate?

All the best,
Filip

Hi Filip,

Thanks for your reply to my message!

After some experimenting, it seems that the problem has something to do with the way WP is updating the site. If I keep two windows open-one with my WP Dashboard and one with my website-and simply refresh the website window after every design change I make, I have no problem. It’s only when I try to view the site via the WP menu bar that the changes don’t seem to be updating. Do you have any idea why that might be? At any rate, I think I’m OK for now!

I will most likely be writing again with some questions regarding typography, but for the moment I’m going to continue exploring. Thanks for the support. And thanks for the beautiful theme!

Bob

Veented

Hello Bob,

Thank you for the kind words!

Yes, it’s always better to preview the changes that way to avoid any caching scripts. And sure, just let me know whenever you have any questions.

Hi Filip, When I resize the browser to an Ipad resolution the thumbs of the portfolio don’t align left, there are some empty spaces. Then on mobile resolution the menu doesn’t show…

http://thewhiteelephantstudio.co.uk thanks
Veented

Hello there,

Thumbnails align perfectly fine for me on that resolution. Can you please provide a screenshot?

As for the menu, just visit the Appearance / Menus tab and assigny our custom menu to “Navigation”. :)

Filip

Goodmorning! thanks for the menu tip. That is solved. Regarding the thumbs here is how I visualise them http://thewhiteelephantstudio.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Screen-Shot-2013-09-18-at-11.46.03.png

Hi again,

The problem appears because some images (the ones that appear “higher” than the other) are not big enough (in resolution) to be cropped to a required responsive size which is 446×314. Just reupload those specific images and just make sure that they are at least that size. :)

Filip,

The quicksand filterable portfolio does not work with Internet Explorer 10. If you filter and then select a direct lightbox, it just shows a static image in a new page.

This happens in your demo site.

Hi again Filip,

I’m having a lot of fun exploring Purity! Questions:

1. Is there a way of increasing the vertical spacing between line of text (heading format) and the elements (for example, Pricing Boxes) that follow?

2. I have a row of three pricing boxes that I’d like to be the same vertical size. But because the “list_check” text varies in length from box to box, the boxes with more text extend lower than the ones with less. Is there a way of adding a “slug” of some sort that would extend the text in the shorter boxes without adding visible text?

3. Is there a way of either creating buttons in other colors than the ones provided, or altering the colors that have been provided?

4. Is there a way of altering the preset characteristics of various typographical elements? For example, if I wanted to change the color of pull-quote text, or body text, from grey to black, could I do that?

5. Last, I find I’m frustrated by only having one format option for Body text. For example, on some pages it would be nice to have paragraph text in a larger font size, but the only way to accomplish this is to go to Theme Options>Typography and change the Body Font Size globally, which changes the look of text on other pages. Is there a way of adding a new body text format option?

I know that’s a lot of questions, but hey, I’m having fun!

Thanks,

Bob

Veented

Hello Bob,

I’m glad to hear that. :)

1. Just use the [divider] shortcode.

2. You may always set a fixed height for all of your pricing boxes. Just add this rule to your style.css file:

.pricing-box { height:400px; }

3. But of course, you may modify the color values in the “Buttons” section of the style.css file.

4. Sure. Just find those specific elements in the style.css file and add or change any parameters.

5. You can have a total control over it by adding new rules into the style.css file. If you know your page id, you may add a rule that will apply only to that specific page:

body#page-id-282 p { color:#111; }

Where “282” is your page ID. :)

Hey there,

thanks for your work. Unfortuneatly the install failed.

See here http://ttnews.info/

Hope to hear from you back soon!

Hello there,

The installation did not fail. Just follow the installation screencast to make a basic website set up and you will be good to go. Don’t forget to upload your own logo image via the Theme Options / General tab. :)

Hi Tauris,

First of all, thank you a lot for this great theme, I love it !

I use the Light Theme skin. Can you tell me how to change the pages color please ? It is set to white by default but I need to change it.

Thanks in advance for the help, All the best,

Thomas

Veented

Hello Thomas,

Thank you for the kind words, I’m glad you like it! :)

To change just page background color, open the style.css file and modify the “background:#fff;” parameter of the ”#wrapper” rule.

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Thank you Tauris :)

I face another small problem: in “Pages > All pages” I don’t see “homepage” so I can’t assign it in the main Menu. How can I solve it please ?

Veented

Did you create a page called “Homepage”? What page have you got set as the Front Page in the Settings / Reading menu?

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Thank you for great help Tauris :) Could you please telle me how can I change the main menu font color ?

Default-user

.. also: please how do you install the 20th September Theme Update ? I downloaded the last .zip file but don’t knwo what to do with it. Thank you.

Default-user

and … sorry, last question: is it possible to change the Body font with one that is not in the list please ?

Veented

Hello again,

1. You may modify the color of the main menu by modifying the “color” attribute of the ”.nav ul li > a” rule in the style.css file.

2. You just need to upload the modified file (/js/jquery.quicksand.js) into your server/host via an FTP client like FileZilla.

3. Sure, I’ve included a guide with the Theme Documentation file. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Hello Tauris :)

1. OK ! 2. OK ! 3. I did exactly what you told on the tutorial but it does not work. No matter what font I specify: I succeed with changing it, but it is not the one I specify in functions.php and style-dynamic.php. I sent you my WP login informations with your Profile contact form so, if you can please have a look to this issue, I would be more than glad.

Thank you so much, tOm

Hey Filip,

Is it possible to display the portfolio category description on the portfolio? (example: you click on the category on the portfolio page, it filters the images, and displays the description below the links)

Thanks, Dave

Veented

Hello Dave,

It is of course possible but this feature does not come out of the box and will require some further modification of the code. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

That much I understand, however, I was hoping you could explain how to use portfolio_desc() in this manner. I see that this function already exists in the code, but doesn’t appear to work.

This is how i’m trying to use it on template-portfolio-four-2.php: <?php include(‘includes/portfolio-filter.php’); ?>

<?php echo portfolio_desc();?>

I expected this to return the portfolio description or even ALL of the portfolio descriptions, but it returns nothing at all.

I’m considering that the array in the function isn’t correct possibly? portfolio_desc() uses get_post_custom_values(‘projDesc’) and returns $value, instead of wp_get_object_terms($post->ID, “project-type”) returning something like $term->description, like the other functions for portfolio work. Although, I tried using it this way and it doesn’t work.

Can you point me in the correct direction please?

Thanks, Dave

Veented

Hello there,

The “portfolio_desc()” function retrieves a “Portfolio single post project description” that is being displayed under thumbnails or over them (depends on a portfolio template). :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Filip,

I feel like there might be a disconnect somewhere here… Is there an existing function in the purity theme that returns the portfolio category description or do i have to write one?

If I do have to write one, how do i retrieve that information out of your theme?

What i’m trying to do is display the portfolio category description above the portfolio items when you click on a category on the template-portfolio-four-2.php layout.

Example:

All Items | Category 1 | Category 2 | Category 3

( the description of the category you clicked here )

( the items of the category you clicked here )

I know this is probably pretty easy to do, the function probably even already exists in your code, i just can’t find it. Please help.

Veented

Hello again,

You may find the function you seek here:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/category_description

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Filip,

The link you replied with is for displaying post category descriptions, not the portfolio category descriptions you have built into your theme that I’m asking for your help with.

That is not to say that I didn’t attempt to use it, as perhaps your portfolio uses wp_posts to store information.

I tried using category_description( get_category_by_slug(‘whatever-the-portfolio-category-slug-is’)->term_id ); This doesn’t work, which leads me to believe that the information is not located in the same database table.

If this still doesn’t make any sense can you provide me with an email address so i can send you a mock up of what i’m trying to do?

Hey Flip, not sure if I just don’t know the syntax or its not possible, but.. In a Pricing Box, above the title, is it possible to have a small image inserted? If so, can you correct my syntax? Ack, i cant insert it here without it changing!

Default-user

Maybe a way to add the option in the css file ???

.pricing-box { border:5px solid #f1f1f1; } .pricing-box p { margin-bottom:0; } .pricing-title { text-align:center; padding:20px 30px 0 30px;} .pricing-title h3 { margin-bottom:0; } .pricing-price { text-align:center;} .pricing-price h1 { font-size:42px; line-height:42px; padding:20px 0; border-top:1px dotted #ddd; border-bottom:1px dotted #ddd; } .pricing-content { padding:20px 30px; } .pricing-content ol, .pricing-content .list { margin-bottom:20px; } .pricing-content .button, .pricing-content .big_button { margin-bottom:0px; text-align:center; display:block; }

Hello there,

I’m sorry but that would require some additional modification of the theme’s code which is beyond the scope of my free support.

Hi, Our slider does not work any longer on the Purity theme. The photo in the first position appears, but the navigation buttons are non-functional and the automation/animation does not work. If I change the order of the photos, still only the first one shows. I have read your instructions on what to do if this happens, but downloading a new version raises new issues for us.

We are a start up church and have had turnover since the website was created. We don’t have an original ThemeForest login or password, nor do we have access to an original purchase code.

Obviously, we must have purchased the theme, as we are using it. Is there a way to back into that info from your records or something I might find in our WordPress admin panel?

Thanks,

Hi

I just tested the contact form by myself. (Should have done this right away and not so late). I never recieved the email on mail (mac). So I check it only on my godaddy workspace mail but there is also nothing.

When setting up the theme I insert my email adress in the theme options.

This is terrible! I hope I didn’t miss too many emails so far.

How can that be solved?

Cheers, Paulo

Veented

Hello Paulo,

It could be your mail server blocking e-mails sent via a PHP contact form. Please try using a gmail address instead to confirm if that’s the case. :)

Hello! Terrific theme! A breeze to customize.

Is it possible to have a separate menu render for the responsive version? I am rendering a logo centered at the website level but might need an option of a separate menu for mobile.

Please advise. Here’s the site: TwoHawksDesigns.com

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for the kind words, I’m glad you like it! :)

And of course it’s possible. First, we need to create a new menu location: open the functions.php file and edit this line:

register_nav_menu('custom_menu', __('Custom Menu'));

to:

register_nav_menu('mobile_menu', __('Mobile Menu'));

Then, edit this part:

$locations[ 'custom_menu' ]

to:

$locations[ 'mobile_menu' ]

Then of course you will need to create a new Appearance / Menus menu and assign it to “Mobile Menu” location. :)

Great theme!

I have a question regarding the Lightbox gallery using shortcodes, if we have 3 images, the lightbox shows them all however on the page itself, only the first image shows and the other two images are not there… is there a way where we can show the 3 images aligned next to each other on the page itself???

Hi Filip, I have two more questions, if you do not mind - 1) How I can display the Menu in the middle, not aligned to right, so it displayed correctly on iPads and mobile devices? I have changed the first line in Navigation section of CSS file – from .nav { float:right; height:30px; margin-top:40px; } , to .nav { float:middle; height:30px; margin-top:10px; margin-left: 150px }, but it doesn’t display correctly – the last entry in Menu goes to the second line of the menu when displayed on iPads. I guess that the problem is in specified 150 px margin, but can’t center Navigation without it. Please advice how I can make it centered and displayed correctly on all devices. 2) Social links in the footer doesn’t display – I have unchecked what is needed in Purity options, entered the URLs but they can not be seen there. I am a bit tired of playing with settings. Could you send me a hint on how to hardcode Facebook and Skype icons leading to relative pages in the footer, let’s say on the same line as copyright notice? Thank you very much, I guess it would be the last request. Bests!

Hi again,

Still love the theme. I’m pretty much done with my site and people seem to really like it. One thing I’d be curious to try but not sure if it’s possible is to change the background color sitewide. To be clear, I’m not talking about the area behind my site content which is controlled via the theme options (light or dark), but the background which shows up to the left and right on the content area, which, as far as I understand, can only be changed to a solid color. I was hoping to put a texture (via JPEG) in this space, which would stretch to the edges of the screen at all sizes. Is this possible and, if so, how?

Thanks in advance, Gabe

Veented

Hello Gabe,

Thank you, I’m glad you like it. :)

Of course it is possible. Just visit the Theme Options / Appearance menus and upload your image into the “Background Image” field.

All the best,

There is a problem with your theme when using iPad and iPhone…

No arrows or bullets are showing when navigating portfolio or even the home page slider by using iPad and iPhone... it is impossible to navigate between one slide to another... Am I missing something here or is it an issue with your theme??? Please advise...
Veented

Hello there,

Arrows and bullet navigation is disabled on iPad/iPhone and you can easily scroll images by simply swiping your finger from right to left. :)

How would I enable the arrows and bullet navigation?

Veented

If the slider effect is set to “fade”, the animation wont happen immediately. The slide will change after you take your finger out of the device (with a fade effect). I’ve tested it on my iPad and iPhone and it works perfectly fine. If you still do not believe, please google FlexSlider 2. That script is used for the theme’s slider.

Regards,
Filip

Default-user
Latif Purchased

why are you taking my comments off ??

I’m just asking you how to enable the arrows and bullets on the slider to be shown on both iPads and iPhones?? You can not navigate the slider on both iPhones and iPad. You replied confirming it without an answer…then later taking the comments off… I’ll report you to themeforest if you misbehave…

we all here rely on your support so we as buyers have to share to one another the issues we are facing and how your support comes in to handle it… not to take it off…

Veented

Since we have started our discussion here, there is no reason to start a new with an exactly the same topic, isn’t it? And in addition, the reason I have flagged your post with goes through a review process and was accepted by the site’s staff.

I’m not really sure if you read my replies carefully – As I stated before – the slider works on iPhone and iPad and it uses the FlexSlider 2 script that fully supports those devices. You may check their demos and documentations.

If you want the arrows to be visible all the time, please drop me a private message and I’ll provide you a modified retina.css file.

Regards,
Filip
