Using the About Me page as an example: http://www.munto.net/quest/about-me/

I noticed that the background photo (of “Mark Jay”) stops adapting at a certain point and the portrait of the person is not visible. Is it possible to make these section background photos fully responsive? Or is that not possible because they are so wide?

Thanks.

Pirenko

Hi,
If you look closely the image is always scaling. The problem is that the face on the image is on the right side and on small devices it is not visible. I don’t see other way of doing this, because the image has to stay centered and scale at the same time.
If you know a website with a different solution with the same type of image (face on the right) please let me know. Thanks!

It’s not necessarily about the face, just using that photo as an example. But I’m curious why these section background photos wouldn’t scale down like photos in the full width sliders (like the main slider on the home page) do?

Not a big deal, just something I’m looking into for a client site. 5 star theme!

Pirenko

Ok… But the image is the text background and it has to cover the text area. At a point it stops scaling to fill this area vertically. Does this makes sense to you?

wildrays

Yes, thanks.

Pirenko

Ok, great ;)

Hi Pirenko, first of all I want to congratulate you for this beautiful and easy to use theme.

I´m editing my web but I don´t find the best resolutions and proportions for the images to use everywhere (logo, portfolio, team, etc…). Do you have a list anywhere?

Thanks in advance. Pablo M Romero.

Pirenko

Hi,
Thank you for your kind comments!
You should find this info on the help file located on the Documentation folder and on certain theme options you have that info near where the images are uploaded. Please let me know if you still need help with a specific image size.
Cheers!

Hey Pirenko,

I want to use this theme for another project, but I have a quick question… Is it possible to make the recent portfolio 3 across instead of 4? I couldn’t find where to change it… also is it possible to put a title/button always visible on the portfolio tile instead of a rollover?

Thanks for your help, and for a great theme :)

Pirenko

Hi,
Thank you for your kind comments! The number of portfolio columns depends on the content width and screen size. So you can see 3 on certain screens and on others 4.
As for the other question I can give you some custom CSS to achieve this. Send me a private message if you need help with it.
Cheers!

Default-user

Hmm, is there any way to set the columns so there are always 3 instead of 4 on larger screens? I need to replicate this homepage: http://www.michellegrant.com/clinlegalholdingpage/clinlegal_layout.html. Thanks!

Pirenko

With some small changes to the code yes. I can still help you with this. Thanks!

Default-user

That would be fantastic :) thanks so much. What do you need from me? I would also definitely like help with the other question above – adding a title/button always visible on the portfolio tile instead of a rollover.

Pirenko

Hi,
Please send me a private message through my profile page.
Thanks :)

Hi Pirenko, I’m having some troubles with the shortcodes button in the page editor. The button is there, but it doesn’t shows up any menu. there is no shortcodes to select.

Has somebody this problem too?

Thanks in advance.

Pirenko

Hi, please turn off all the plugins that you may have active for a moment. If you still have trouble please send me a private message with your WP login details. Thanks!

Default-user

Hi again. I´ve tried to deactivate the active plugins but it doesn´t work either.

I´ll send you my WP login details.

Cheers!

Pirenko

Ok, thanks!

How can I insert an icon in a text body?

I wanted to use a telephone icon instead of “telephone:” in contact page. The icon I’d like to use in this case for example is “icon-phone”, but I can´t find a good way to put it in.

Thanks in advance.

Pirenko

Hi,
You need to edit the page-contact.php file for this. You will also find an icon list on the theme documentation folder. Cheers!

Hi Pirenko, I´m having some problems with the carousel shortcode. Actually I´ve realised that some other person has experienced the same problem.

When I insert some logos in my carousel, the images shows cutted out at the bottom. I can´t find the way to fix it.

Also, it would be interesting to have the possibility of add links to each item in the carousel.

Thanks in advance! Pablo.

Pirenko

Hi,
Please send me a private message with a link to your page. Make sure also that you are using the latest theme version. Thanks!

Hi again Pirenko, I have a new issue with the logo in mobile version.

When I open the website in iPhone (I haven´t tried in android devices), the logo appears a little cropped on the top. I´ve tried to move the logo a little lower through the theme options but it seems to move it only on desktop version.

This is the site: http://pmr2.es/ if you want to check it.

It´s not a huge problem but it would cool if you know how to fix it.

Thanks in advance. Pablo.

Pirenko

Hi,
I will check this soon and will fix it on the next update if needed. In the meantime please send me a private message for a quick fix. Thanks!

I want to change the size of the sliders, especially your height, how do I do?

Pirenko

Hi,
What sliders are you referring to? Anyway, the sliders size depend on the images relative proportions. This means that you should use images that are wider to decrease the sliders relative proportion.
Cheers!

Hi Pirenko,

I need help fixing the shortcodes button issue. I have several customizations to my theme and cannot run a general update. Can you please advise how to do it manually via copy and paste?

Appreciate your help! Darren

Pirenko

Hi,
You should be all right if you replace the content of the folder inc/pirenko_scodes/
Cheers!

Hi Pirenko, Great theme! I don’t seem to be able to eliminate the white gap between the menu section at the top of the page and the slides. Where can I adjust whatever I need to adjust. I’ve tried it using the 900×500 placeholders, and have had the same problem, so it doesn’t seem to be an image size problem.

Here’s the link to my site: Http://www.thegorgeismygym.com

Thank you!

That’s odd. I just changed it from classic page to “page with sections”, and now the gap is gone. Thoughts?

Pirenko

Hi,
This is expected, because the page with sections is the one that allows sections without spacing. Thanks!

Hi i have the same problem as a previous poster, my shortcode button is visible but does nothing when clicked – it’s a new install and plugins are off. Can you please look at this and advise on how to resolve -thanks.

Pirenko

Hi,
What theme version do you have?
Thanks!

Default-user

Hi – it’s version 2.6 and running on latest version of Wordpress. thanks, tom

Pirenko

The latest theme version is 2.9 and if you check the theme changelog you will see that it has already been fixed. So just update the theme to fix that. Cheers!

Default-user

Hi that’s great – when i checked previously it was just at 2.7, i didn’t spot another update – thanks for the quick response, tom

Pirenko

Ok, just let me know if you still have trouble with it. Thanks!

Default-user

MAJOR PROBLEM WITH 2.9 Hi, that worked fine initially – shortcodes all appeared as they should. But after that i did a complete wipe as the WP auto install on the host was too problematic/restrictive (hosting was with 1and 1, not my choice) and i did a complete fresh manual install of WP and started with version 2.9 of the theme – i spent hours cursing the hosting and the problems it was causing and then realised it was the theme that was the issue, you CANNOT set the the theme options, skins etc., if you start with 2.9 – i had to go back and install 2.6 configure all of my settings there and then install 2.9 over the top to get the shortcodes working – hope you can sort this soon. Tom

Pirenko

Hi,
This does not seem to be coming from the theme. I don’t have any similar reports as you can see by the comments. I just re-tested the theme and it seems to be working fine. Try installing the theme on a fresh install and you will confirm that there are no similar issues.
Cheers!

Default-user

Ok -will do (it was a fresh install though) – i’ll maybe set one up on my desktop later and try it – it’s working with 2.6 configurations and 2.9 added after that so reluctant to change that install again. thanks, Tom.

Pirenko

OK… If you have any plugins active turn them off too. Cheers!

Default-user

HI – talked the client into another hosting package and it all works fine there – thank you! Unfortunately it now looks like i will need to use another theme anyway as they have decided to go for a ‘one page’ site for most of the content – tried to do that with this theme using anchors from the menu but it only seems to work properly in some cases? – do you know if this can be done properly with this theme. Thanks, Tom

Pirenko

Hi,
The theme is not entirely ready for that. Anyway, you can send me a private message with a link if you want me to test something specific. If you are eventually interested I have another theme that is ready for that: http://www.pirenko.com/gusto_land/ (click on the fourth screen).
Cheers!

Default-user

Hi – i have had a look at Gusto and i may well swap over to that. I have a few questions about it first and some about the Quest theme i am currently using – i will private message these to you. Thanks, Tom

Pirenko

Ok, thanks :nerdy:

Default-user

Questions have been PM’d to you – thanks.

Pirenko

Hi,
I have just replied. Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks, i have just replied back – but i did it via my hotmail account without thinking so let me know if you got it ok. If not i can repost directly through themeforest. Thanks again, Tom

Pirenko

Yes, I got it. I will reply soon. Thanks!

Default-user

Hi – i’ve met with my client and sent you a new email this morning of where i am currently at re Gusto. Thanks, Tom

Pirenko

Ok, I will get back to you as soon as possible. Cheers!
