Reach The documentation says you can got to Appearance > Sidebars to add a sidebar. I don’t see Sidebars anywhere?

EugeneO

The sidebars plugin was removed from the theme as it was no longer compatible with the latest version of WordPress. I would recommend looking through the WordPress plugin directory and searching for an alternative plugin to use:

Is there a list somewhere of all the plugins required, in case I deleted one by accident?

EugeneO

If you go to Appearance > Install Plugins you should see a list of all recommended plugins that are either not installed or not activated.

Hi there, having a problem installing the funky shortcodes plugins. I keep getting this error >> “An error occurred while installing Funky Shortcodes: Download failed. couldn’t connect to host.”

Any ideas on why that’s happening, some settings on my host maybe?

I take it those shortcodes are used for the columns in the portfolio as well they don’t seem to be working for me when I choose 2 columns?

Thanks for your time.

EugeneO

Are you able to install the other recommended plugins on the Appearance > Install Plugins screen?

Are you able to install other plugins that are not in the recommended plugin list?

Yes, every other plug-in I’ve installed has been fine and is activated. Is there a way to install manually via ftp?

EugeneO

Yes the plugin can be installed via FTp. The plugins can be found in the inc/plugins folder of the theme. Extract the contents of the two .zip files to your desktop (funky-shortcodes.zip and funky-shortcodes-reach.zip) and then upload to wp-content/plugins. Once they’re uploaded go to the plugins screen of your site and activate them.

Is it possible to increase the ‘popup’ width size for the portfolios? A percentage perhaps instead of a fixed width? I use a lot of videos on my folio so would be good to have that option.

Thanks

EugeneO

Change the container width through CSS.

#colorbox #content {
width: 816px;
}

Sorry, another question, it’s not having quite the desired affect. It has increased the container but not the ‘video’ column. The text column is now bigger as well. How to I set it to 2/3 size for video, 1/3 for text? Thanks again.

Should be able to see what I mean on the page here >> http://www.warpandwoof.co.uk/our-work/

Urgent – Video lightbox malfunction

http://sandandseaproductions.com/videos/

The videos used to pop up and now the box is flattened and no video palys.

EugeneO

Your portfolio videos are working fine for me. The lightbox looks different because you have changed the CSS but other than that I can’t see any problems.

Default-user

Yeah I fixed it. I had #content set to height 0. Do you know why I can’t click on the X to close the videos?

On the mobile nav for iPhone, how do I remove the DONE button and make this a 1 click process to go to another page?

EugeneO

I don’t know how you would do that as the select field is styled and controlled by the browser.

Default-user

Yeah but the source code is JQuery right? How do I edit it?

EugeneO

The mobile navigation select menu is created using JS in jquery.custom.js.

I just purchased this theme and would like to know how to upload the themes images from the demo.

On my home page, using All In One SEO my meta description in the preview is different than the one in the box used to type the description. When I click in the box to type, to change it preview immediately updates. Then after saving it returns to the old one. On a google SERP it’s a totally differnt one from either of these. I can send you screen shots.

This may be true of other pages, checking now.

EugeneO

The theme doesn’t include a description meta and to my knowledge shouldn’t interfere with AIOS generating description metas. If you are using a caching plugin it may be that it is preventing a new description from being set.

Google rarely uses the descrption meta from a page. Instead it uses content directly related to the search term.

Provide a link to your website so that I can take a look at the page code.

Hello! Portfolio shortcode doesn’t work on homepage. Displayed only shortcode. Need help! Best regards, Igor Ogaryov

EugeneO

The shortcode works. It’s being used on the home page of the theme demo here:

http://themes.eugeneo.com/reach/

Do you have the funky shortcode plugin installed and activated? Are you using the correct shortcode.

Here is the exact shortcode used on the demo home page:

[funky_portfolio number="3" columns="3" orderby="date" order="desc" title="true" image="true" excerpt="false"]

Hi, we’ve not purchased yet, but we are thinking about. Before to decide, we would ask you if it is possible to add share icons to each portfolio items, so that we could share the entire portfolio post with text and description and not only the video from vimeo or youtube. We mean, is each portfolio item a single post with its own url that we can share on facebook or twitter, even if it uses lightbox? Thanks in advance.

EugeneO

Each portfolio item is it’s own post within the portfolio custom post type. The lightbox uses AJAX to fetch the content from the actual portfolio item’s page and outputs it within the lightbox. If you right click and “Open link in new tab” on a portfolio item in the grid you can see the actual portfolio item page.

Also, the portfolio items do not have to open in a lightbox. If you prefer you can disable the lightbox and just have the grid work as normal links to the portfolio items.

Default-user

Thanks a lot for your reply. We like the lightobox effect and we don’t need normal post for portfolio item. But we need to share portfolio contents in social networks. In your theme if we share with facebook a portfolio items (using lightbox effect), the link from facebook will open a single post; we would like that the link returns to home page (still better if the lightbox post is opened). Do you have any idea if this is possible with colorbox parameters? If you think so, we would appreciate this kind of help after buying. Thanks in advance for your reply.

EugeneO

I don’t think it would be possible.

How to I make the width of the default template larger?

EugeneO

Add this to the stylesheet of a child theme and fill in the blanks.

#wrapper { width: XXXXpx; }

#content-wrapper { width: XXXpx; }

.page-content { width: auto; }
Default-user

That is perfect. The only thing is that when I put in the px width i’d like it interferes with the sidebar? Should I have to somehow move the sidebar to the left more?

EugeneO

The wrapper width needs to be content-wrapper width plus 180 (the width of the sidebar).

#content-wrapper + 180 = #wrapper
Default-user

This is the code I am using - #wrapper { width: 1180px; } #content-wrapper { width: 1000px; } .page-content { width: auto; }

The website is http://www.highmaine.com/ I believe that I am doing it like you said, but am still getting the same weird result.

Default-user

I actually had to use 220 not 180. I understand it now.

Thanks for the help and the speedy reply’s. I will definitely buy from you again.

I am using an SEO plugin and it tells me I don’t have an H1 tag, or I didn’t use my keyword in an H1. The title contains the keyword. It seems like the page title should be an H1 tag. If not then what else would it be?

EugeneO

The page title is inside a H1 tag on all templates. The only time this would not be the case is if you have selected the hide page title option on the page edit screen. You can check this by viewing the page source.

For the last week or so I’m not able to create a button. I click the icon to insert a button link in a post, paste URL etc, and as soon as I hit insert there’s nothing. The button info box returns to blank and there’s no button.

EugeneO

You need to update the theme and then update the two shortcode plugins.

You update the plugins by deleting them from your WordPress installation and then going to Appearance > Install Plugins and installing and activating them in the list of recommended plugins. This must be done after the theme has been updated so that the version of the plugin in the updated theme is installed.

I need to update the theme. I don’t know how to do that. I tried to download new version and alter the name but it doesn’t work. You gave some instructions to Brooksie about 7 months ago regarding updating the theme. I don’t understand what all that means. I need to update and button shortcodes are not working now, but I can’t risk being down with no site. How can you help.

EugeneO

Download the latest version of the theme. Go to Appearance > Themes and delete the theme. Then re-install the newer version.

After the theme has been updated deactivate and delete the shortcodes plugin. Then go to Appearance > Install Plugins and re-install the two Funky Shortcode plugins in the recommended plugins list. This will install the newer version of the plugin included in the newer version of the theme.

Your content will be unaffected and downtime will be a matter of seconds.

Depending on how old the version of the plugin is that you are currently using you might need to add the “funky_” name space to the beginning of any shortcodes in your content.

[button][/button]

Becomes…

[funky_button][/funky_button]

...etc.

However I don’t think that will be the case for you.

Hi, thanks for the great theme.

I found a problem about the video, please see: http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb467/Jimmy_Iw/problem.png

My video can’t auto fit the browser width when i visiting my web in smartphone.

Any idea to solve this problem? thanks for your help.

Hi Eugene, I am trying to embed a video from www.themadvideo.com to my website (Reach theme) as a Portfolio Item.

Once in my post box I do write a text, I copy de HTML code of this video under the Text tab (nos Visual tab) and then press Publish. If I go to to ‘View Portfolio Item’ I do see the post with text and the video. However if I go to the site itself (Visit Site), click on Portfolio, click on my post I do see the text but the video doesn’t appear.

Surprisngly if I do enter on my website through and iPad or and iPhone I am able to see both the text and the video. Why the video doesn’t appear when I visit my site through a computer (both Mac&PC)?

Thanks in advance for your quick response Eugene. Victor

EugeneO

Provide a link to your site and I will take a look but I do not believe this is an issue with the theme. My first guess is that its a problem caused by how the embed code is processed by WordPress or rendered by the browsers.

Default-user

Hi Eugene, thanks for your quick response.

Here is the link to my website: http://sleepingcreativity.com/portfolio/ If you click on the item: ‘Videos interactivos’ (the first thumbnail-item on the top left side) you will see the text: ‘Ejemplo de vídeos interactivos’ but you won´t see the video.

However, through an iPad or iPhone you go to my web, switch to Desktop Version (the Mobile version has crushed) you will be able to wee text and video on that post-item.

I attach you an image capture of the HTML code I get from TheMadVideo which I paste into the box.

Thanks Eugene. <Captura de pantalla 2014-06-19 a la(s) 11.22.37>

Sorry for answering so late. I did reply to you this morning to an the generic mail from Theme forest.

EugeneO

EDIT: I see what the problem is. The portfolio items are loaded via AJAX. When the portfolio item loads the video scripts are not loaded because the page does not refresh.

I need to see the video player code to help further. Either post a link to the page showing the video player embed code or use <code></code> tags to post the video player embed code directly in your reply.

EugeneO

I’ve found a possible solution for you. Send me an email via the contact form on my profile page and I will reply with an updated file for you to try.

EugeneO

Another update.

I’ve tested the video player code from your website on my own test setup of the theme and it works fine without any changes to the theme code.

Go to the Portfolio Item edit screen. Click the HTML tab on the content editor, delete the video player code and then get the player code from the site and copy/paste it back into the content editor.

Default-user

Hi Eugene, I don’t know if you could read the last message I sent to you in private mode. I still have the same problem. I can see the video when after pasting it I click on ‘View Portfolio item’ however when I go to the website itself and click on Portfolio i do not see the video. I am totally lost. If you need my codes I can give them to you if you want to try. Thanks!

EugeneO

I have not received any messages from you. Have you tried what I suggested in my last post:

Go to the Portfolio Item edit screen. Click the HTML tab on the content editor, delete the video player code and then get the player code from the site and copy/paste it back into the content editor.

As I said, I used the exact video code from your website and pasted it in to the portfolio item content area and the video worked absolutely fine as you can see by clicking the portfolio item on this page:

http://themes.eugeneo.com/reach/portfolio-category/hidden/

And this is the video player HTML code I used from your site:

<iframe width="480" height="360" class="youtube-player" id="visor53077200d845ea14438b4568" src="http://studio.themadvideo.com/player/index.php?forceHTML5=&ap=false&path=http://studio.themadvideo.com/api/videos/53077200d845ea14438b4568/player_data&originURL=http%3A//tmv.do/5p5tf&originLongURL=http%3A//sleepingcreativity.com/portfolios/videos-interactivos-3/" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="true" allowtransparency="true" type="text/html" webkitallowfullscreen="true" mozallowfullscreen="true"></iframe><script src="//studio.themadvideo.com/player/js/MadVideo.js.php?id=53077200d845ea14438b4568"></script>

Oh yes, I see. This is what I do (see video please). I am doing something wrong for sure…https://vimeo.com/99156417

Default-user

Wow, the code I see that you have used is longer than the one The Mad Video is giving me in their site…..

EugeneO

I am using the code taken directly from the sites source (Right Click, View Source or Right Click -> Inspect Element).

Try this.

  • Add the code they give you to the content editor.
  • Publish the page.
  • Click the “view portfolio item” button.
  • Right click -> View Source and find the video code in the page source.
  • Copy the code from the page source and replace the video code in the content editor.
  • Update the page to save the changes.
Default-user

Wow, I might be stupid but still don’t get it. This is what I’ve done (new video :)) https://vimeo.com/99227718. Thanks for your patience Eugene.

EugeneO

You’re almost there. It was my fault because I wasn’t very clear explaining which code you need to copy from the page source.

  • Add the code they give you to the content editor.

  • Publish the page.

  • Click the “view portfolio item” button.

  • Right click beside the video player (do not click directly on the video player) and then click the “View Source” option. See example here.

  • Press “ctrl + F” on your keyboard (or I think “cmd + F” on mac) to open the Find tool.

    Type “madvideo” into the search box to search the page source for the video code. See example here.

    You then want to find and copy the iFrame and script tags. In the image above they are highlighted in the red box. Replace the video code in the content editor with the code you just copied from the page.

  • Update the page to save the changes.

Default-user

Hi, unfortunately when I right click besides de video I do not get the same options as you, Eugene. The one ‘View Source’ does not appear, nor ‘Inspect element’....I do only have these options: Back,Refresh page,Open in Dashboard, Save page as, Print Page. :(

EugeneO

I’m assuming you are using Safari on a Mac. Here are steps to view the page source:

Default-user

Great! I did what you say. I am almost there. Now it is something about the code that I get once I press Cmnd+T and type madvideo.https://vimeo.com/99264277

EugeneO

I made a mistake. “View Source” shows the page code at the time it is rendered. We want to get the page source after MadVideo has added your video to the page so instead we have to use “Inspect Element”.

Ok try this:

  • Click the “View Portfolio Item” button to go to the portfolio item page.
  • Use “Option+Command+i” to open the Web Inspector window.
  • In the “Search Elements” text box in the top right corner of the Web Inspector window enter “madvideo” and press return/enter. It should skip to the same iframe and script you found previously.
  • You will have to right click and “copy as HTML” the iframe and the script tags individually as it won’t let you copy both at the same time.

I did not read all your points in the beginning and wanted to go fast and I messed up something because the first time I saw the code that was divided in two parts. I wanted to copy both and could not do that (I did not read before what you said about copying them separately) and now when I go there again and do what you say I do type ‘madvideo’- click on’Return’ but that code(s), now, do not appear…. My fault! I wanted to go fast and I messed it up!...grrrr…

EugeneO

Copy the original embed code from madvideo and start again. I could just give you the code but if I do that you won’t know how to do it for yourself the next time you need to add one of these videos.

Default-user

I did it!!! However it has been strange. The first time in the Web Inspector Window I see both codes (the long one and the short one that is just one line). I copy the first one as HTML and paste it in the content editor (by replacing the original one). When I come back to the Web Inspector Window I do not see the short (one line) code. I see the long one. I’ve decided to copy it and paste it under the first one and…voilà! it appears. I have the video now. It is great, but worried because I thought I’ ve should have copied-pasted the short code under the long one in the Content editor.

EugeneO

It is the long version of the code you want. The short version is the code you copy from mad video. The long version is the code after it has been processed and the video player has been added to the page.

Normally you would only use the short version of the code. When you load the page the script would then automatically change the short version into the long version and create the video player. Instead, we are:

  • Adding the short version to the content editor.
  • Loading the page so that the short version changes to the long version.
  • Copying the long version from the page.
  • Replacing the short version with the long version in the editor.

So from now on the script no long has to convert the short version into the long version and then load the video (which is why the video was not loading).

Default-user

Thanks a lot Eugene. You have been very helpful. I appreciate all your time and interest. Thanks a lot!!! Tomorrow I will be copy-pasting more videos on the portfolio. Thanks!!

my email is sean@seanhopkins.com could really use some help, client isnt too happy

EugeneO

You need to set a feature image for all portfolio items. They either haven’t been set at all or they have not been set correctly.

Default-user

They all currently have feature images, what would cause them to not be set correctly

I’ll have to take a look at the page edit screen.
