Hi there – love your theme, just starting out with it now, but faced with some issues.

1. I want to showcase blog writing as a portfolio, so I created a page from the portfolio template, but unless I include a featured image, the posts won’t appear on the portfolio page.

2. ALSO , even if I do add a featured image (from those included within the theme package or my own) the thumbnail won’t work and it just shows a missing image/symbol on a thin black bar (however clicking on it still gives you a lightbox, and if you click through to the post the featured image is there).

I haven’t changed any settings or anything (that I know of), but looking over sample pages included in the demo, lost of the images (mainly thumbnails, have gone buggy like that – no image shown, but will work if clicked on).

Help? I’m a writer who has waded in over my head – I’m not as savvy with the technical side of things as I thought.

Where can I edit the amount of posts on the blog page using the 3 column hybrid post. Right now it only loads 5 posts and then places the rest on the next page.

Hi. Nice theme…second one I’ve purchased from you :)

Anyway, stumped on CSS customization. I disabled the Page Title on a specific page (About) and want to reduce the spacing between the menu (nav-bar) and the content. I used the full-width template on the About page and entered the content in the Wordpress html page content field. The content is subdivided – 8 column + 7 column. I’d like for the spacing between About page nav-bar and content to match the one on the home page. The home page is a default template with a slider and a disabled Page Title.

Suggestions please?

Thx!

Short answer – we have some videos on CSS customization here: http://youtube.com/makedesignnotwar

Medium answer – try something like this in the custom CSS panel (adjust the value as necessary):

#section-content{margin-top: -20px;}

Long answer: If you need really specific help, check out the new freelancer-for-hire site (http://freelancers.mdnw.net) to get some help with this stuff since this can get pretty deep into “theme customization” territory. You can review our support policy here as for what we can and can’t help out with: http://makedesign.ticksy.com/faq/268

Holler if you have any other basic theme questions :)

Thanks for getting back to me quickly and appreciate the help. Your medium answer was perfect and videos were also very helpful. The freelancer-for-hire option is good to know however, my customizations to your theme will not be extensive. Your theme, based on a few hours of perusing WP themes on Themeforest site, was the closest in layout to what I needed. At the most, I’ll prob need a few tweaks.

Anyway, thanks again and take care.

Hi!

I’m having troubles with my slider. Everytime i get to my main website the first image is smaller, after scrolling it the image comes to its real size. What’s going on? My website is pangloss.es

Than you!

Hi Marina!

I’d imagine that you’re sending the “large size” or “medium size” image to the options panel instead of the “full size”... that, or your images aren’t meeting the minimum 960px wide to fill that space (http://www.pangloss.es/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/port-07-color.jpg is only 770px wide for instance).

If that doesn’t help out in a pinch, please file this at http://makedesign.ticksy.com where we conduct all support like this :)

Cheers! B

First of all LOVE this theme, bummed to say that wordpress 3.5 really screwed it up! The add media function is not working at all and my posts are all unaligned. Any help on this matter I’d really appreciate it. Check out my homepage and you’ll see the misaligned posts due to the upgrade.

We seem to be having trouble with the slider. Its extremely slow loading. can you check this? www.pricebuildersmn.com

Heya Athen!

You’d got a maintenance mode up, which prevents me from checking anything out… and could also be the source of the problem (in combination with a slow webhost, plugin conflicts, or any other number of issues that might slow things down). It’s hard to tell without a live site though…

And don’t be afraid to use our support ticket system over at http://makedesign.ticksy.com :) That’s really where support is intended to be conducted.

Hi! Just one question… How can I remove the frame on my picture? http://www.pangloss.es/perfil/

I’ve read in a website that I had to remove something in the Editor, but have no idea where in the editor…

Thank you!!

Marina

No problem Marina!

Try adding this to your custom CSS panel in the Theme Options:

.content img {
    border: 0px solid #DFDFDF;
}

Cheers! B

Hi!

Thank for your answer, but my websited bugged adding this to the CSS panel…!!!

http://www.pangloss.es/

What can I do?? I can’t even log in back in the admin panel… Thank you!

Hi, nice theme. I have some pre purchase questions.

1. Are there plans to adopt a wider resolution beyond 960 pix ? And if so, what is the expected timeline? How hard would it be the change it manually?

2. Are the thumbnail sizes for portfolio page adjustable in the theme options? For instance if I wanted square or portrait thumbnails instead of landscape ones?

Thanks!

Hi, First of all: Happy New Year to you.

Question: Is it possible to also create only one image on the slider homepage? So in stead off the 3 smaller images now.

Regards, Ray

MDNW
MDNW Author

Yep, absolutely – you can pick from any number of slides between 1 and 10 and the slider will adjust accordingly ;)

Cheers! B

RayNicovs

OK. And then one more:

Is it possible to make the slide NOT automatically slide, but manually?

Ray

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi Ray – Sure – that’s a theme option that you can toggle on and off :)

B

How do I remove the author picture on every post? I see above that you say it is possible, but I do not see where you describe how to do it, and I have also looked in the documentation.

Thank you.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Add this to your custom CSS panel:

.my_avatar{display: none;}

Cheers! B

Question: Can it be used as a blog theme? With that, I need to display full post content in homepage (landing page). Thanks.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Sure – that’s actually what a lot of our buyers use it for – you can swap out the “Excerpt” with a “Full Content” tag super easily to display all the content – or even easier, you can grab a free plugin that’ll give you full control over what shows up in those excerpts :)

B

I am working with the theme now. But I have difiiculties with the slider. I get an error like: ================== Script has stopped working>>> http://midaszwaan.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.8.3:2 =====================

Updated in your next post ;) B

Slide is working now. Sorry for that. My mistake.

Another thing : I entered a description which has to be underneath each photo….but the description isn’t visible??

Ray

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hey Ray!

Glad you sorted out the slide thing – The description is just for your personal use at this time – some of our themes employ captions, but Reason doesn’t as there are some real issues with getting them to work when you have more than 3 slides selected on each carousel… long story short, we’re working on a solution ;)

Also, we usually reserve the http://makedesign.ticksy.com forums for these sorts of support questions – so feel free to file over there in the future.

Thanks! B

Hi there!

Does this theme operate as a blog/can I make the homepage a blog, with the slider still there?

If so, any information on how I do this would be lovely!

Thanks, J

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi J!

Yep – you can make the homepage a blog and you can have a slider on any page or post across the entire theme :) You can even customize how many slides show up per carousel (3 are shown in the demo, but you could have it be one large slide or 5 smaller ones).

Cheers! B

Hi,

I’m having problems with Internet Explorer stretching the thumbnail images long.

I checked it out on your live preview site and it is doing the same. In Firefox it looks 100%, but the thumbnails in blog posts are stretching. I also have Nextgen Gallery running and those thumbnails are also stretched tall. I am running Wordpress 3.5 and downloaded the theme a few days ago so it should theoretically be up to date. Any ideas? I need to find a solution pretty quickly for a client since they have an advertising campaign about to start.

Hi – I am having a problem installing the latest version. In Wordpress I get the following message when uploading and installing.

“Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

Destination folder already exists. /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/themes/reason/

Theme install failed.”

I have version 1.9.3

Hi Batmandela!

You just need to delete the old theme – some webhosts require this because they disallow folder overwrites :)
