Hello a couple of pre-purchase questions.

-When view the portfolio, I notice the “plus” sign on the thumb, and the arrow icon seem to do the same thing (lightbox popup). Is there a way to disable the arrow and just keep the “plus” sign? They seem redundant.

-Is there a way to stop the shifting effect when you hover over the menu and just have it keep the basic rollover style?

Heya Torn!

1. Yep! That’d be a basic CSS snippet that you can add to the theme’s custom CSS panel – All basic stuff like this I can help out with directly – just make the request here or at http://makedesign.ticksy.com when you pick up the license.

2. Yep! Same deal here – the snippet that you’d copy/paste in looks like this:

.sf-menu > li a:hover {padding-right: 15px;}
.sf-menu > li:last-child:hover a {padding-right: 0;}
.sf-menu > li:hover {box-shadow: 0 -0px 0 #000;}

Hi Brandon, yes I would like to load a few modified css files that are located in the child theme/assets folder. Not sure what to change to get the path right though, been looking for an example all weekend.

Thanks

Heya Notes!

Finding the right lines of CSS can be tricky, but the Firebug plugin for your browser should make it a lot easier – we even have a video on it at http://youtube.com/makedesignnotwar if you want to check it out!

Heya Blicke!

In the Theme Options panel there’s text fields where you can change that stuff for the “From the Blog” row :)

Hello. I am having the same problem that was listed above – I can only add 3 Front Page sliders and when I try to add another one, it deletes one of the others. I have made sure I have the most recent version of OptionTree installed, but it doesn’t help. Do you have ideas on how I can fix this?

Thanks!

hello hope I am posting in the right place. I am new to wordpress and a novice. I liked the look of your theme, wanted something responsive and bought it. I’m hoping I’ve not bought one too complicated for me. I want my home page to have a similar layout to the demo. I have added my logo and sliders no problem and they all show nicely on screen I have also switched on the feature row and added text and added graphics and text for the blurb boxes but none of them are being displayed and I’m not sure why. I can see everything there in theme options in the front page options section but nothing on the actual screen. Can you help. I have read through your docs but can’t find anything on the homepage stuff. Thanks in advance Bryony

Hi Brandon,

Is there a way to display posts from a specific page only using the archive widget? I want to use the archive widget but it shows all of my posts including the portfolio post. What I cant is to use the archive to display only the blog posts.

Thanks. Redg

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Redg!

Hmmm – good question – not that I know of actually – those core WP widgets usually just grab from ALL of the posts, not a specific category or set of categories as you’re suggesting… you’d basically need to code a custom widget from scratch to get something like that.

Hope that at least helps explain it! B

I don’t personally do customizations or installs anymore as there’s just too many other basic questions to respond to, but that’s why I setup the http://freelancers.mdnw.net site – hit up one of those guys for some assistance with a custom install :)

Hi there Epicera,

1. I was wondering if there is a way to remove the black 1px borders on every image I post.

2. I was also wondering if there is a way for me to add a small image to the footer, and beside that two vertical lines of text.

Warmest Regards, Carl

Hi Versep!

1. Sure! add this CSS snippet to your custom CSS panel:

img{border: 0px !important;}

2. Sure! You can use basic HTML to insert your image, or try out the “Simple Image” widget (free) to insert an image :)

Cheers! B

Creating a ‘blog’ page using the Full Width Blog page template. When trying to set the SuperSkeleton Options it says “Category Filters (for Blog and Portfolio pages). Select which categories you would like included (*only used if this page template uses blog posts, like the portfolio or blog templates.)”

....but there is no visible field box or drop-down available for me to set the categories? Its just missing? Is this a glitch?

Thank you. Stacie

Heya Stacie!

The actual list of categories won’t show up until you have at least one published post assigned to each category (that’s just how WP works). Can you confirm that this is the issue on your side?

Hi

I just purchased and installed this theme. A few things don’t work. The responsive navigation menu does not work. It doesn’t link to the relevant page when clicked. The lightbox feature also does not seem to be working. I add a vimeo link to the post in the lightbox field and the thumbnail takes me to the Vimeo page rather than playing the video inside the lightbox.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Love the theme, just having trouble with one thing. I’m trying to use the portfolio navigation for one of my pages, shown here: http://bouldercreativegroup.com/orb/linkpartners/. I don’t want to show all the items originally but would rather just show the first category “Architects”, is there any way to start on one of the filters instead of “All”.

Thank you!

Unfortunately, not yet – we’re working on hash-tag linking in the next wave of portfolio template updates, but it’s not quite ready :) It should be up later this week though.

Hi Epicera,

I’m having the same problem that katetownley22 is having. I can only add 2 front page sliders. When I try to add another one, it deletes one of them. How can this be fixed?

MDNW

Heya Antwon!

Here’s the official word from Derek over at OptionTree :

OK, I figured it out! Kind of.

Basically, I had to delete all the slides that were added and save so the array of slides was deleted entirely, then re-attach your slides. For some odd reason the array that created your slider was corrupted. Unfortunately, I don’t know why it was corrupted but I do know for a fact it’s now working.

If anyone else has this issue, remove all the slides and save, then re-attach them. Should fix it.

The technical answer is that when they updated to version 2.0 of their plugin, they didn’t have exactly the same data settings for those slides… so a handful of ya are finding this issue. Resave the slides and you should be good to go.

I am sure this is a super random question but is there any way I can add “Sticky” navigation to the site so that the navigation stays with you as you scroll down the page?

If not, anyone know of any plugins for it?

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Improv!

This’d definitely be more of a theme-customization job for http://freelancers.mdnw.net – It’s totally possible, but would take at least a couple hours of coding to get working properly. I’ll consider it for future versions though :)

I am having a heck of a hard time adding the ecommerce pluggin Shopp. the short code in the catalog page is doing some weird things. any suggestions?!

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Lyon!

We don’t actually support any ecommerce plugins with this theme yet (and it’s actually a fairly involved task to re-create template files that work properly with an ecommerce plugin), so there’s not much help I can provide. The same goes for lots of plugins – integrating them falls to individual theme users unless they are part of the recommended plugins list that we maintain.

Wish I could help more on this one! B

Hello

Currently working on a portfolio page. I basically want to display 9 videos in a 3 column portfolio – each video would launch a bigger video (lightbox?). To try this out I have created a post which is basically just video embed code from vimeo. I have then added the link to the actual video in the custom light box link. On my actual portfolio page I have selected the 3 column portfolio template. I have also given the video a category and ticked it in the category filters box.

Am I missing a step? My video isn’t appearing on my portfolio page.

Also on the post page itself the video appears and plays but doesn’t launch a larger vid window.

Appreciate any help. I realised my Q is probably basic but I am a novice. Loving being able to build my site in your theme though.

Heya Bryony!

Got a link that I can peek at? I don’t see any issues right off the bat as it looks like you hit all of the major steps.

The only thing I can think of – Does each post have a featured image assigned?

Hi

Sorry I didn’t see your response had come through. The portfolio page with nothing appearing is here http://filmfairy.co.uk/wordpress/our-work/ The post I have created is here http://filmfairy.co.uk/wordpress/182/

I haven’t added a featured image as I just wanted the video to appear as part of the portfolio page and then launch to the bigger video in the lightbox. Is that not how it works. Let me know if you can help.

OK I have tried adding a featured image to see what happens. In one instance the image appears in the portfolio page but when I click on it the image is just launched larger – I want the video to launch In the other example (where I have put a specific lightbox link in the skeleton) it tried to load something but goes nowhere. Essentially I want my videos to behave the way the featured image does in the first example – appear in the portfolio and launch bigger when clicked on. Let me know if I’m not making sense. Bryony

Heya Bryony!

Check out the videos section here for some of these basic setup issues: http://youtube.com/makedesignnotwar

And don’t forget that we have a full FAQ section here: http://makedesign.ticksy.com

In general though, make sure you’re using the Custom Lightbox URL is filled out with your Video URL if you want it to open in a lightbox :)
