Hey Brandon, I bought this a few days ago and have been trying to get the archives and categories pages to display in a “traditional blog” format instead of the default 3 panel tile format. and the default tile format conflicts with the excerpt plugin and the read more link is grayed out and doesn’t work anymore.

So basically i need a way to change the default format of the theme from tiled to traditional so that whenever links connected to any tags or archives or calendar or categories are clicked it displays them in the Traditional blog format….

check my site out for more clarification and click on the archives on the sidebar.(categories can be fixed by linking them to a page.but tags and archive pages are a problem,as i cant create a page for each and every tag).This is the only thing preventing me from starting the actual blog.

Heya Manaf!

This one’s actually a fairly heavy mod if you’re not really familiar with WP code. I can give ya the basics though:

1. Create an archives.php and category.php file in your root theme folder 2. Copy the code from template-vertblog.php onto each 3. Remove the header on each marking them as page templates (but keep the get_header).

That should do the trick – this page should help – http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy – it basically shows how WP looks for files, and the template you want is there in the template_vertblog – so copying that over a hierarchy file should work :)

If that sounds like a ton of work though, hit up http://freelancers.mdnw.net – that’s what those guys are there for :)

Hey Brandon,

I’ve tried a couple of things to no avail so far.

I’m trying to add a read more link after the excerpt on the blog posts, any tips to get my brain working???

Great theme by the way.

Cheers dude!!

Heya Dan!

Sure! Grab the recommended “Advanced Excerpt” plugin and set the settings for it – we even have a video on it here: http://youtube.com/makedesignnotwar

I love the theme but for some reason I am having short code issues. I wish to add some columns to pages but I can only get very thin, fixed-width columns to appear.

Here is what it looks like:

and here is the code I am using:

Also, on an iphone, the lightbox throws up very thin, tiny images.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the feedback Cosh – We’re upgrading the lightbox plugin in the next big update to help out with this and reduce the padding on phones :) B

Brandon, it seems there are some display problems with Internet Explorer 8. The rounded corners of the body section and the navigation are missing as well as the backgrounds of the nav bar.

Also, Im having some inconsistencies with the logo auto resizing in different browsers and it seems the header image is always resizing itself as well. Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Heya Anthony! Those are actually CSS3 properties that IE8 doesn’t display, ever ;) Same idea with the responsive stuff – IE8 doesn’t do responsive :)

B

Gotcha…any way to add a background to the menu? as it is now in IE8 the menu is transparent on the background?

MDNW

Sure! I’ll add a small patch in the next update, but use this in your custom CSS panel:

.sf-menu {background: white;}

Love this theme!

Where can I remove the “Fonts From” icon on the bottom right of the theme though?

Heya Chris!

Just remove the snippet in the Font Replacement field, or if you’re using your own Typekit, they actually give you the option to remove it when you setup your own snippet.

Is there a way to turn of the effect that makes the first page slider look like it’s flying in from the top left of the screen?

You can see it on my install here…

Heya Chris!

That might actually change based on what browser that you’re on… it loads up pretty normally when I checked it out on FF, IE, and Chrome… any ideas?

B

chrisluck

I think it’s just Safari :-)

A little off topic… but I can’t find the answer ANYWHERE …

My Wordpress Install strips out the “www.” on my site for some reason.

How can I get it back in there?

Like instead of http://www.appiteks.com

It is http://appiteks.com

Heya Chris!

I think that might be part of the original setup or the DNS specific information on your nameserver… as in, perhaps there’s a record on there that’s forwarding all www traffic to * values. Try searching for the answer without WordPress in the query perhaps…

Sure Holly :) You’d just specify that you want your blog to be the homepage, then on that page you can add a custom slider.

Hi!

Great looking theme. Having some trouble installing the WP-Paginate plugin that the theme asks for. Says that it was not given the correct URL . Could you help?

Thanks

Heya Bris!

Hmmm – it’s possible they changed their URL – I’ll check into it – in the meantime, try just searching for it on the Plugins > Add New directory :)

Where can I go to find a coder / developer to hire to make some minor tweaks / additions to this beautiful theme?

What I need is just simple jquery slideshows and image overlay transitions that I have not a clue how to do :-)

That’s what I was looking for! Thank you so much.

Hi, is there any way to put HTML into the sliders instead of just an image?

Thanks. :)

Heya roo!

Not at the moment as this is an image-only slider, but I’ll be hunting around for some optional slider script alternatives in the future that might bring this feature to the theme :)

Hello,

I saw a comment about changing the blog format to be traditional column. I tried following the response which was to create an archives.php and category.php, copy template-vertblog.php onto each and put them in the theme folder. I did this, putting the two files in the “radiant” folder under themes. However, that didn’t change anything in my case. Can you possibly explain if I did something wrong or another way to change the columns?

Thanks

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi Meth0dan,

To my understanding you would need to also do some work to the files, not just copy a template to them. Since the template has rules allocated to it within the theme, you would need to do some styling and altering to that file. My suggestion is to just alter the template file, and alter the excerpt file which adds some layout rules also when called by the template.

If you would like more information, please file a ticket with us at http://makedesign.ticksy.com/

Cheers, Charlie

Hi,

Would it not be a good idea to add the shortcode to the different elements on the “Shortcodes & Theme Extras!” page? Could you send me the shortcodes that you used on that page?

Thanks!

Hi fts

I’m loving your theme :-) It looks great and I’d love to purchase it but before I do can you advise if it is compatible with WooCommerce as I need a theme where I can sell products. Hope this won’t be a problem

Also can I mix and match the different elements of the page templates to make up my own homepage layout etc?

Cheers

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Eims!

Nope :) It’s a standard theme – so there isn’t any eCommerce integrated… I’ve had some customers convert it into their own version of an eCommerce theme using WooCommerce or MarketPress, but I can’t vouch for how much work that takes as it’s really outside of what we can support.

As for your second question – if you’re thinking like having a Hybrid Blog Section above a Portfolio section… then no. If you’re thinking of having just a bunch of different stuff on a full width page template, or having standard page elements above a portfolio, then yes… so it’s really more about what you have in mind ;)

Hope that explanation helps! B
