hello! is it possible to have random portfolio items shown on the frontpage instead of the latest? tnx and regards, fusi

Veented

Hello Fusi,

Just open the template-home.php file and edit this line:

post_type=portfolio&posts_per_page

to:

post_type=portfolio&orderby=rand&posts_per_page

Hi Tauris,

Love the theme – clean and simple. I am, however, having one problem. I have 3 images in my “Slider” banner but only the 1st one ever shows up.

If I try to click the next arrow on the Slider, nothing happens. I’ve tried disabling a plugin that I thought was the problem but nothing seems to work.

Any idea how to fix this?

Veented

Hi there,

Thank you for the kind words! :)

And there was an issue with jQuery not being loaded properly and I’ve released a Theme Update to fix the problem. Please redownload the theme files and upload them to your server/host replacing the old ones.

Files changed: functions.php, header.php, whole /js/ folder.

All the best, Filip

Default-user

Sorry I’m a bit new to this – will I lose all the changes I’ve made to my Theme if I redownload them?

Veented

Hi there,

None of the Theme Options will be modified but if you made some changes to the .php code that are listed within the updated ones then yes. You will need to back them up.

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

So as long as I haven’t made any changes to the .php code, all my images, texts, menus, etc. will still remain if I redownload?

Veented

But of course. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Thank you!

Also: I want to change the default font used for the text I write in the “Homepage Custom Content” box, where do I edit this?

Veented

Hi again,

You will need to manually give a class to a HTML tag that you insert there and then invidividually style it within the style.css. :)

Filip,

I have noticed on all 4 of the sites I have used Purity, that the homepage slider is not functioning properly. It is stuck on the 1st slide and won’t cycle through. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Hello Tauris,

I purchased your awesome theme last week but I am having problems. I sent an email on Friday but hadn’t heard back. (Wasn’t sure if it went through or not. I realize it’s the weekend ~ sorry!!!) My most pressing issue is that I can’t seem to get anything to show up other than the title on each page. Also, no images show up on my slider, though they are added. Plus, I can’t see the Ajax contact form anywhere. I am new to WP (clearly out of my league but trying to learn) and am completely lost! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Veented

I’ve replied your e-mail but I got a “Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently” error. Here is my message:

Hey there,

My slider on my website is not working for some reason… it was working and then it stopped. The URL is paperlightsmusic.com

Any suggestions? I already tried re-uploading the images.

Do I need to re-do all the work I have done on the website or will it automatically function correctly?

Default-user

Also, how do I re-download it?

Default-user

Sorry… hate to be a pest. I figured out how to re-download, and now when I try to install it, it says:

Destination folder already exists. /home/content/46/10107746/html/wp-content/themes/purity/

Theme install failed.

What can I do to fix this?

Veented

Hi again,

No pages/posts/theme options will be modified, you don’t need to worry about that. And you cannot simply upload the theme via the Appearance / Themes menu because it simply already exists there. Please login to your FTP (you should find the login data in your host panel) and upload the unzipped theme files into the theme folder replacing the old ones. :)

Best Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Filip,

Are you available to help me? I have accidentally deleted everything! I tried re-uploading the theme twice and it didn’t work and then I deleted it and tried to upload it again, and now my entire website is deleted along with all of the information!!! I am freaking out, is there any way you can help me? I can get you the login information… My personal email address is sarahjbradfield@gmail.com

Hello Sarah,

You can send me a private message with as much information as you can write (including WP login information and a detailed issue description).

Hi Tauris, I’ve loved working with Purity. The work required to produce a decently configured site was considerable less than for the premium themes I’ve used before. Great support for the single glitch I experienced, too!

Hello, Why does the first post title appear twice (once above the date and again below the date)? Is there a way to get rid of the top one?

My site is: http://www.denisenicholsblog.com/ and the “Test Post 2” title is listed twice.

Thanks! Denise

Veented

Hi Denise,

First of all, I can see some weird styling issues there. Did you modify the style.css file yourself?

As for the title, it’s truly odd. Could you please send me your WP login information so I can take a closer look at the issue?

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Thanks so much, but I decided to switch to a one-column theme so I can have wider images. Thanks anyway!

Slider suddenly stopped working…

Hi! Is there any possible reason why my slider would just stop working? I have four slides and it’s stuck on the first one. I hadn’t made any changes to the site at all.

By far one of the best WP themes on ThemeForest. The product, in terms of design and customisation is second to none as is the dedicated customer service. Appreciate your help thus far! TCF

Hi Filip,

I bought Purity and think it’s a great design.

I’m having a small problem with adding more images on a single portfolio page. TimThumb is uploading image without a problem (GD Library installed & changed permissions to 777 etc). On a portfolio page I can add a thumbnail image, then uncheck the ‘Direct Lightbox?’ box. This works, but when I add ‘Image 2’, and then ‘Image 3’ and then update the page, it only shows a larger picture of the ‘Image 1’ (Thumbnail) with a grainy grey background and not a lightbox (with a knockback page background) that then can navigate to other images with a next and back arrow, as it does on your example website. I’ve tried to add other pages and can’t workout why it’s not working. The url is www.davidsadlercreative.com. Any ideas?

Many thanks

Hey there, due to recent changes by vimeo the direct lightbox feature in portfolio is not working properly. While the direct lightbox check-box is selected, when you click on a thumbnail on the main porfolio page, you get redirected to the “vimeo uh oh” page. When I deselect it, the video becomes available but only on a separate page and not in the lightbox format. Can you suggest a fix?

Hi again,

As I can see, your website is still running old scripts which means that your theme is not up to date. Do you use any cache plugins?

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

I don’t believe so. The only thing I’ve found are two files in the js folder: .DS_store and twitter.js. Could these be causing the problem? And is it safe to remove them?

Veented

There should be more files. Please redownload the theme files, unzip them and check the /js/ folder content.

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Yes, there are more files. There are the files you have in the js folder that I already re-downloaded, unzipped, and uploaded. I’m saying there are additional files. I’ve done everything you suggested, and my slider is still stuck on Slide 1. Please help. We have ads in newspapers and online sites starting tomorrow and I really need to get this issue fixed. What else can I do? Please help. Thanks.

Veented

Please make sure to update the functions.php and header.php files aswell.

Default-user

I did. Here’s a summary of what I’ve done so far:

1. Re-downloaded the theme’s zip file. 2. Unzipped the filed. 3. Uploaded the new header.php file. 4. Uploaded the new functions.php file. 5. Uploaded the new /js/ folder.

Still, same problem.

Hi Filip!

I made some modifications to my homepage template to show a thumbnail for recent posts using the “post_thumb” call the same way the portfolio thumbnails are displayed using timthumb.

I’m a little bit out of my league as far as PHP goes, but I’d like to make it so that if a post doesn’t have a thumbnail, it instead pulls in the featured image using a regular “get_the_post_thumbnail” call that’s built into WordPress. I tried to set up an “if…else…” condition, but like i said, I’m a little out of my league.

I know this is way outside the realm of a normal support request, but I was wondering if you had any ideas for how to get this to work? The website is http://www.giddensinafrica.com.

Either way, thanks for such an awesome theme!

Hi Tauris,

I’ve been customizing the theme for my business and can’t seem to get the page-tagline custom field to update. I can add my own custom fields to pages and then update them properly, but whenever I try to update any of the custom fields that came with the theme, they seem to revert to the default on page update.

I have applied the latest theme update, but this doesn’t seem to address the issue.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi Filip,

I added a search bar to the header of my homepage by using this code:

#header #search { position:absolute; top:39px; margin:0; right:65px; float:none; }


I do not need a search bar in the right sidebar, so how can I remove it? I opened the sidebar-right.php template, but I do not know which part to edit. Can you please help? http://cl.ly/image/1H2w0h0d1V1f

Purity is a beautiful theme! I was looking for a sleek, modern, minimalist theme for my recording studio’s website. I have NEVER built a website before, and Purity for WordPress made it very simple and painless. Choosing Purity was a no-brainer, especially after I saw how attentive Filip (aka Tauris) is to customer service. He always responds to my inquiries quickly and thoroughly. This is the best minimal theme out there for a business- and although it is not responsive, it still looks great on an iPhone. His other theme, Spacing, looks really nice too, and I may buy that at some point to have a second option or for a mobile redirect. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! -Patrick Norton, Citizen Recoding – citizenrecording.com

Hi Filip, On my contact page, I want to display the google maps widget in the right sidebar. It’s default setting is 198 by 50 which is far too small for what google wants to put in there. I’ve found it needs to be at least 300px wide to be functional, but probably a little larger to look good. But when I increase the widget size, it expands to the right, going off the page and causing a scroll bar in the browser window. Is there a way to align the right sidebar widgets on the contact page closer toward the center? I looked through the code, and tried a few things, but I just couldn’t figure it out. :) Cheers!

Veented

Hi again,

Why don’t you just use the default big Google Map that comes with the contact page? :)

Best Regards,
Filip

Default-user

I’m not sure what you mean… I have the included widget enabled in the contact sidebar but it is too small, and when I adjust the size it just goes off to the right… I do not see any map on your preview page, but your documentation says you included a maps widget… am i using it incorrectly? you can view the problem i am having at http://citizenrecording.com/best-local-recording-studio-contact/ thanks for your help!

Veented

Hi again,

And excuse me, I thought it’s my other theme.. Please send me a private message and I’ll help you out with styling the map. :)
