Hi there, How do I change the auto size of the feautured image please? I want to make them thinner. Cheers, Keith

icypixels

Hey there,

Thanks for the purchase! You might want to look into the possibility of editing functions.php line 71 :

add_image_size( 'thumbnail-large', 1500, '', false );

To suit your needs.

Hi, I tried changing that code and now I’m getting this message: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /home/mcginty/public_html/nakedfreelancer.net/wp-content/themes/ravage/functions.php on line 129

icypixels

Please revert your functions.php to the one available for download here, as it seems you have edited the wrong line and broken the theme :)

Default-user

Thanks for getting back to me so quick. Where can I download it from? And how do I install it?

Default-user

I opened the file from the zip folder and copied and pasted it into the window but I’m afraid the same message still comes up?

Default-user

And now I can’t login, I get the same message

icypixels

Please replace your theme files, by redownloading the theme from your Downloads section. You will need to replace your files, via FTP. It will be best if you would delete the theme and reinstall it again to insure a fresh clean install

Default-user

So I can’t rescue the site?

icypixels

Only if you completely replace any modified files in your modification process. If you have only modified functions.php, there shouldn’t be an issue to replace functions.php and the site would be back and good. Also, you might want to check in with your hosting if they can restore a backup for you.

Many thanks for your help, very impressed with your customer service. Ended up uninstalling WP and starting again. Luckily I hadn’t done a huge amount first time around so it only took an hour or so. Really reluctant to mess with the code again! Any other way of resizing the image? One more question, how do I set up the menu so ‘resources’ doesn’t lead to a blank page? My site is Naked Freelancer

icypixels

Open up a support ticket, and mention the sizes of images you want them to be. Currently images are 1500 in width with any height, to insure retina support. You can also upload just a 900px in width image, and not provide retina ready images in your posts.

Regarding the menu, you might want to look into the possibility of creating WordPress Pages, with content in them and then using a WordPress custom menus and the documentation, the link won’t lead to an empty place.

Best of wishes and have a nice weekend!

Default-user

I’ve opened a support ticket as suggested.

As for my question about the menu, I have already set up the pages, my problem is the the parent page leads to a blank page http://nakedfreelancer.net/resources/

icypixels

Hello there,

I managed to answer your support request.

Have a great day!

Thanks.

Any further clarification about the menu issue?

Hi there!

I’m having a little trouble with the gallery. We have a multi-site network and from what I can see, the theme seems to support the gallery fine on the main site, but any of the sites on the multi-site network wont operate correctly at the moment.

The issue we are having is, when there is more than one gallery used in a blog it only ever shows one gallery, and visually blocks the images from any other galleries in the blog.

See here: http://newsfeed.tiqbiz.com/309/ The top image has one image in a gallery, then the two post’s below also have one image each in their galleries, and they aren’t showing.

I have tried using “image” post format, and “gallery” and the results are the same each time. I only have one image per gallery in this example as I spent quite some time testing and got too lazy to keep putting many images up per gallery ;-)

Your help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Steve

icypixels

Hey Steve,

Firstly, let me thank you for the purchase!

I’m using the theme on a multi-site installation and as far as I’m aware of, the gallery post format is supported.

Unfortunately, you can’t use more than one gallery in your blog, if you’re using the gallery post format, and the dedicated meta box to upload images to your post. The theme doesn’t know how to handle multiple galleries (the ones with the slider) in the same post. Altough, you can use default WordPress galleries. Just click the Add Media button at the top and it should be a breeze from there.

The site doesn’t seem to be relevant to my theme and I can’t see any images.

If I can be any further assistance, do not hesitate to post a question here or on the support ticket system.

Kind Regards.

Hey icypixels,

I want to use this theme as a blog, for business and selling digital products and personal services. I have a few questions regarding customization

Can the Ravage Theme menu bar be moved into a horizontal position under the header?

Can I have a content/sidebar on the homepage and every page so to put on opt-in form to collect leads and conversion?

icypixels

Hey GSPE,

You can use this theme as any other WordPress theme around. Mainly, the theme was built to be a blog, but I can’t see why it won’t do digital products with a bit of work. Unfortunately, at the moment, we don’t provide customization services, so you would need to look for a freelancer. But soon enough, I will launch my own customization service. What’s better than the theme developer customizing the theme? :D

Yes, you can have a sidebar on the homepage and everypage, where you can put a widget (through Appearance > Widgets).

Kind regards.

Default-user

Thank you for clarifying.

And let us all know when you’ll be opening your doors for customizing themes!

icypixels

Of course! I will announce here, as well as on Twitter and my profile page :)

Hi there,

Beautiful theme, I’ve been eyeing it for a while now. Few questions before I purchase if you don’t mind.

- Can the header be static? - Does it include a full-width page template?

Thanks!!

icypixels

Hello Cassielee,

What do you mean by a static header? The header is already static, where you can have your name, or upload a logo image.

The theme doesn’t currently have a full-width page template.

Hi there. Thanks for the template! I just have a question about the featured image doubling up. http://lesunshine.com.au/ For my two latest posts I have resized images and removed the featured image, they display the fine, however all the others have the featured image at the top of the post. How can I fix this without having to go through and delete all the featured images?

Also, how can I control the length of the excerpts?

icypixels

Hello Johnny,

Thanks for getting in touch with me! If I understand correctly, you don’t want to use Featured Images and use images in posts. I ask you kindly to search for a bulk featured image plugin on wordpress.org, which allows you to add/delete featured images on multiple posts at a time.

Best of wishes!

Default-user

Thanks for your help. I was hoping there was some code that I could change that would stop the featured posts appearing as the first image. I guess I will just have to remove them.

Also, where is the code for the image captions. I find the grey boxes a little big and wanted to change the font. Thanks again, I’m enjoying customizing this theme.

icypixels

Hello Johnny,

I wouldn’t recommend disabling featured images, by removing the code, but if it’s what you wish, you’ll need to delete the content of /ravage/post-standard.php and /ravage/post-image.php

For caption styling, you’ll need to know a bit of CSS. The file to edit can be found here: /ravage/includes/css/flexslider.css on line 95: .flex-caption { ... }

I would recommend using Child themes to edit theme files ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes ), so you would ensure your modifications aren’t overwritten when you update the theme.

Best of wishes!

I bought the theme for my Hebrew blog http://www.listener.co.il. I like the theme’s minimalism and focus.

Unfortunately there are a few UX issues:
- No search bar in the header. This is standard & important for websites.
- No search template. When searching it should say ‘Search results for…’ and the search bar should contain the keywords that were just searched.
- Tags aren’t displayed in posts. Rather annoying since I use them a lot in my blog.
- Single post template – the big image links to the post even though I’m already there. Remove that link, it’s useless.
- Single post template – no next/prev post paging.
- Technical issue – the theme isn’t fully child theme ready. E.g., you enqueue style.css with wp_enqueue_style, so 2 style.css end up being loaded when using a child theme.

Could you please fix these for the theme’s next version? Thanks in advance.

icypixels

Hello idosius,

Firstly, I want to say a huge thank you for the great feedback and for the purchase!

  • I’ll try and play around with a search bar and see if I can come up with a solution. If I can’t find one solution without compromising the design, you can always use a search widget in the sidebar and place it right at the top (and it will sit below the navigation menu).
  • Indeed, well spotted. I’m adding it to the update list.
  • I’ll add tags to the end of the post content (right above the like, tweet, love buttons), so I won’t compromise the blog look and feel. Does this suit you well ?
  • I’m going to correct that in the next update.
  • I’m going to correct that in the next update.
  • Actually, in order for child themes to work with a simple style.css file, you’ll need to have the parent theme style.css file, right? :) There was an issue which was corrected some time ago, which involved the child theme css file not being enqueued, but now it is :)

Thanks again for providing such valuable feedback!

Kind regards.

One more thing – I noticed that the placeholders in the comment form are not internationalized, plus they use a complicated mechanism instead of placeholders with polyfill.

Thanks for reporting small bugs :) I’m going to squash them, I’m a bit in a crunch time right now :) but maybe I’ll get some free time this week and release the due update :)

Hello, there is a way to show “featured posts” on home page?

icypixels

Hello voidness,

Thank you so much for the interest in the theme.

Ravage is a simple Blog theme, which uses all the blog functionality. In order to have a featured post at the top, you will simply need to use the Sticky post feature, provided by WordPress.

For a Featured Posts section, it’s not possible out of the box. But a developer could code you one.

Best of wishes! Have a great day!

Bugs. When I choose the video option when making a post, it removes the post title..so now I can’t even post videos since there is no dang title to the post, its just blank.

I don’t care for the tags that much or post navigation..looks cluttered. I liked how it was before, nice and simple. But I can comment out those things anyways, just wished you made an option to disable them.

Sort of odd why the posts with videos don’t have any post title like the normal posts.

icypixels

Hey nerwin,

So sorry about that. I was a bit tired when I released the update and this essential thing escaped my sight.

Here’s some custom CSS to fix things out:
.post-media icy_video { clear: both; }

This solves the issue and you will no longer have to wait for the update.

If I can be of any further assistance, or if you have any more questions, please let me know. Have a great day!

That didn’t work, made no change. I added it to the Custom CSS box first, didn’t work. I then manually added it to the CSS file and still didn’t work even after clearing the cache.

Am I doing something wrong?

icypixels

Hey nerwin,

Try directly this:

.icy_video { clear: both; }

I’ve just implemented the solution in the demo and it works.

Hi.

Might be a daft question, but what is the optimum size of photos for the posts I can use.

Thanks. Michael.

Hey there Michael,

Thank you so much for the purchase!

As probably stated in the documentation, minimum is 900px in width, but for retina support, I recommend using 1400px.

Let me know if I can be of any further assistance! Paul

MichaelMuscroft

Thank you Paul. There is no documentation in my file!

I have now re-downloaded the package and have the gel file, thanks. It refers to Custom Page Templates. I can not find these, can you let me know where I should have them?

One other thing I have noticed. I have just downloaded the latest file at TF, but after install it reads version 1.4, but I see that 6 days ago you released version 1.5 Not sure how to solve this.

icypixels

Hey Michael,

Right on your Edit page screen, on the right hand side, you can find a Page templates box.

MichaelMuscroft

Yes I know this, but there is only a choice of default or archive template. Your description makes it sound like there should be several types.

Is there a way of making more templates myself?

Regards. Michael.

icypixels

Hey Michael,

In order to create your own page templates, you would need some PHP/ HTML / CSS knowledge.

Sorry for mentioning like there are more types, but there are only these two. I tend to use the same overall documentation for most of my themes, as they are built on the same framework.

Hi Paul.

I think there is a bug on the contact form. If a person does not input a website, it assigns a value of www.yourwebsite, which is then appended to the persons name on the comment. Is there a fix for this?

Also, the tag colours do not change with all the other accent colours in the theme options. Can this be added so that it matches everything else?

The post image seems to act like it is a link, changing in opacity when hovered over, it doesn’t actually link to the full post. Can this be made to link directly to the full post or be removed as is confusing?

Regards. Michael.

icypixels

Hey Michael,

The contact form is made using a plugin, called Contact Form 7 and I’m unable to provide support for third-party plugins. It would be best to contact the plugin authors regarding this issue, as it’s not theme related.

I’m adding tag colors to the list, thanks for letting me know.

Indeed, that’s just an effect which I don’t intend to remove.

Thank you for everything. Let me know if you have any further questions :)
