Hello EugeneO.

First of all: great theme; lovely work.

I’m currently upgrading this site: http://explosivealanproductions.com. It is being moved to a new, completely updated server:
- Linux: 3.10.48-55.140.amzn1.x86_64 > 3.13.0-36-generic (Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS)
- Apache: Apache/2.2.29 (Unix) > Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)
- MySQL: Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.40, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1 > Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.40, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 6.3
- PHP: Zend Engine v2.3.0 > Zend Engine v2.5.0
- WP: 3.5 > 4.0.1
- Reach: 3.3 > 3.5.7

Changes, as required by your notes in the version log, and according to the directions in the documentation, have been made.

I have two issues, that I cannot see addressed there, or in these comments.

1) Items in the portfolio style index page grid no longer render in the same way:

In the older version. the grid of items renders as displayed here – with the image made to fill the grid space, cropping to the center: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/screenshots.explosivealanproductions.com/PortfolioIndex.BeforeUpdate.png
In the updated version, the grid honours each item’s aspect ratio, leaving a blank space under items with a greater aspect ratio: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/screenshots.explosivealanproductions.com/PortfolioIndex.PostUpdate.png

How can this be addressed? I have tested creating a new portfolio index and items to see if it is a migration problem, and the same issue occurs.

2) video portfolio item pages (crucial for this site) render oddly.

In the older version, using the embed code meant that the video wrapper rendered in the right size: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/screenshots.explosivealanproductions.com/PortfolioItem.BeforeUpdate.png
The new version, with the video URL just included as the first line in the main text, renders incorrectly: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/screenshots.explosivealanproductions.com/PortfolioItem.PostUpdate.png
In another browser (uptodate Chrome on uptodate Win8) I have seen it rendered differently again: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/screenshots.explosivealanproductions.com/PortfolioItem.PostUpdate.overlap.png
Yet oddly, in the portfolio index page lightbox overlay view, it renders correctly: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/screenshots.explosivealanproductions.com/PortfolioIndexLightboxPostUpdate.png

How can this be addressed?

Thanks, in advance, for looking into these issues.


Hello. I now understand the issue regarding the portfolio thumbs rendering, and that issue is resolved. Thank you for the guidance.

We now have a problem updating an embedded soundcloud audio embed.

I’ve moved the URL to the top of the body text and selected ‘Audio’.

The page (accessible with the hosts modification) is: http://explosivealanproductions.com/portfolios/metal-gear-rising-revengeance-preview/

I’ve tried all three of the below variants with no success. - https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F79048253
- https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/79048253&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true
- https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/79048253

Any ideas?

It should be the normal SoundCloud page URL that is added to the top of the page content: https://soundcloud.com/explosive-alan/metal-gear-rising-revengeance

I’ve tested it on the theme demo and it works okay. http://themes.eugeneo.com/reach/portfolios/mgs-audio/

ok – that works :) Thank you for your support.
