One more question: On your example page on Themeforest, I see a LinkedIn social at the bottom, but I don’t see the LinkedIn in the customize. How do I get it?

Thanks

LoveThemes

Update to the latest version, this was recently added.

Default-user

Tried updating through WP. Says I am up to date, but no LinkedIn.

LoveThemes

Redownload the theme and overwrite.

Hello! Love the theme. Just bought it over the weekend for my website. Now I am admittedly a beginner, and I am kind of learning as I go with customizing it- but I do have a question. I tried googling the answer to no avail, and if this is a blatantly stupid or obvious question I am sorry! How do I change the background color?? I’ve found how to adjust the accent color, but even in the custom CSS I cannot for the life of me find where the value for the background is listed to change it… Thanks in advance for your help!

LoveThemes

That is a CSS value. You can either modify it directly in applications.css or add your color in Custom CSS.

#content 
{
    background: #f5f5f5!important;
}
Default-user

Shoot, guess it is not the background color I am looking to change. I want to change the blue throughout the theme… sorry for being a pain in the butt!

LoveThemes

What blue?

Default-user

All of it. Maybe it is not as easy of a fix as I was hoping haha… I want to change the dark blue that is incorporated throughout the entire theme to my branding colors instead.

LoveThemes

If its not the accent color then you’ll need to modify assets/css/application.css and find/change the color.

Default-user

Ok I figured it out now, thank you so much!

LoveThemes

You’re welcome! Don’t forget to rate via your downloads. ;)

Hello again iKreativ, Quick question. Have you considered saving the header images at 2560px so it display properly on large displays? Also, the hyphen the divides the quote from the persons name is not centered properly. I fixed this with a simple css change #testimonials ul li hr { margin: 10px 47.5% 20px 47.5%; } Last item of concern, did you anticipate people wanting to have multiple images per project? I find it weird that anyone would place the additional images below the primary image when the lightbox (prettybox, w.e.) doesn’t link into the other image. I on have just implemented my own fix for my site but thought this was the only weak point in the theme.

Take Care,

LoveThemes

If you add your own images under the featured you can simply add rel=”prettyPhoto” to the a tag to open them in a lightbox.

jordanharriger

Thanks, I had not considered that. I also noticed that your theme doesn’t notify you when an update is available.

LoveThemes

It should do, everytime I push an update you should receive an email from Themeforest.

jordanharriger

Hmm that is strange. It must of been something on themeforests end.

LoveThemes

Hmm, possibly.

Hello! I saw your theme and I need a structure like this: Picture above and just below the menu!

I have a question: instead of the picture you can insert a slideshow? Do you have advice? The sidebar to the right in the blog you can delete and “transform” the structure as an element in all ‘other: image, article title, article preview text, date and article writer and tags?

I wanted to get this info to be able to buy and I saw in the comments that you’re very helpful!

Sorry for the English … thank you! :)

LoveThemes

The header is static, if you want a slider version have a look at my Epicism theme, very similar to Refinery.

The sidebar is widgetized, add or delete whatever you like from there.

Hi iKreativ,

1.] Where would I add the title text for the blog page as in your example?

2.] I have been unsuccessful in getting sidebars on the home page only? possible to have unique sidebar than the blog?

LoveThemes

1) The page name. Explained in the Docs.

2) Its only built in for the blog. To add to other pages you’d need to add it to the template and also modify the CSS so it fits correctly.

Default-user

1.] I understand how it works for the page titles but I don’t have a page titled “blog” that I can add the title text to. From what I understand I add the blog image in appearance/customize/header and add the image that way. but how do I add the text that I want on that image?

2.] ok thanks,

LoveThemes

Create a page for your blog.

Default-user

yep, did that and set it in the customize section. its set up correctly in the menu but the image is not showing up at the top??

LoveThemes

Why is it named blog-2-2? Do you have other blog pages in the trash? This may be conflicting.

Default-user

yes, I did, fixed that. still no love!

LoveThemes

You mean this right: http://d.pr/i/SbKV ?

Which comes from: http://d.pr/i/sbWr

Default-user

what am I doing wrong?

I really dont know, email wp-login to hello[AT]ikreativ[DOT]com, Ill jump in and look.

I want the updated version but how do i overwrite the old version?

If i just add the updated theme, wordpress says that the destination folder already exists. /var/www/thetastebud.dk/public_html/wp-content/themes/refinery/

Does it mean that i have to delete the old version before i install the new? And if i do that, would everything on my website be deleted?

LoveThemes

Upload and overwrite via FTP

I downloaded the zip file and it would not upload to Wordpress. Then I unzipped it and saw a 2nd xip file in the first zip file. I uploaded that one (even there were not directions telling me to) and I now have a VERY basic version of this theme but it really looks nothing like the live demo. How do I get the correct file?

LoveThemes

Read the docs that came with the download, it explains it.

Default-user

Can you please be slightly more specific?

LoveThemes

In the download there is a documentation folder with setup instructions.

Default-user

In the documentation folder the only file is called “index.html” and there is a folder called “assets”. Neither has setup instructions.

LoveThemes

Double click the index file, it will open in your web browser.

Default-user

And the index.html file gives instructions of how to install it to Wordpress, it does not explain why I’m missing nearly all the content, pages, animation, etc of the template.

LoveThemes

Yes it does, it explains how to import the demo content.

LoveThemes

Even though you will be adding your own content and pages.

Default-user

Ok, so then why doesn’t my page have ANY of the animation or formatting like the template?

LoveThemes

Have you followed the instructions? Have you installed the demo content?

Default-user

No, I tried but got this message: The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

Default-user

I requires a .zip file, yours is sample.xml. I tried zipping it and that didn’t work either.

LoveThemes

No, Wordpress uses .XML to import content, are you sure you’re doing it correctly?

Default-user

Ok, I got it working. This is MUCH harder than it should be! My other Wordpress templates for my other websites just worked.

Now when I try to add a page that has a “parent” page it does not show up in the parent dropdown menu.

Do you have a phone number I could call?

LoveThemes

I wouldn’t say it was hard, the demo content is just there for example purposes, you could just start with your own content.

Use the Wordpress menu system for ordering and creating drop menus. Again, explained in the DOCS.

Thanks for the great theme!

Is there any way for me to change the name of the Blog page in the same way that you can change the name of all other pages?

I have created a Page and given it a title. Then, I’ve gone into WP settings> Reading and set that page for my posts. Still, when I load that page it is just called “Blog”

Thanks!

LoveThemes

Sure. Go to Pages, find your Blog page, call it whatever you like, and set the Permalink to whatever you’d like: http://d.pr/i/qaJY

Default-user

Well… My blog page is titled “Every now and then, we get to talking.”

However, it just shows up as this – http://www.502mediagroup.com/blog

LoveThemes

Thats the permalink, change that in the page editor: http://d.pr/i/qaJY

Default-user

no, what I was saying is that if you click that link above, you will see that the blog page title did not change.

LoveThemes

Ohh, you mean in the header, across the image? Appearance > Customize > Header

Default-user

That only offers options for the image, and the button text/link unless there has been an update to the theme?

LoveThemes

Sorry, I’m confusing myself with support requests!

Hi,

what is the custom css that I need to input to remove the 100% width on images?

LoveThemes

You’ll need to remove it from the CSS rather than try to override.

Modify workless.css and scaffolding.css and remove the reference to width 100% on img

Default-user

ok and what happens when I need to upgrade the theme next?

LoveThemes

That will be removed from the theme as a few users have asked the same as you so I will remove it.

Default-user

ok great thanks it still doesn’t seem to be working for me after I removed it from scaffolding?

LoveThemes

Which images are affected?

LoveThemes

Ahh I just checked your site, I assume the ones in blog? If so, there is img.featured in assets/css/application.css that needs the width: 100% removing too.

Default-user

yes! that worked! thanks so much! will I have to change it again when I upgrade?

LoveThemes

I don’t think so, a few people dislike the theme messing with their images so I may remove it altogether.

Enjoy!

What would the proper header size be in order for optimized viewing on larger screens (such as a 27 inch imac). the 1920×400 header is too short horizontally?

LoveThemes

2048×400

Default-user

thank you..one other question… how do i link the “sign up” buttons on the pricing back to another page…such as the contact us page?

LoveThemes

Inside of the pricing shortcode you add your link: [pricing heading=”Demo” price=”FREE” link=”#” name=”Sign Up”

Great theme, just need a fix for the responsive CSS; if you have a sub menu in the navigation it doesn’t display the text at all when it opens to the right on small devices and small browser windows, please see here: carolinegarland.com I’m running the latest version of the theme, please can you advise how I can fix this?

Many thanks

Make sure your menu is named Primary

Hi,

Love the template. I have an issue where I can’t upload any image via WordPress. Is this a common issue? For example I cannot upload any header for my site.. Looking forward to hear from you

LoveThemes

No one has reported this as an issue, working fine in the demo too.

Any errors? Maybe a server error?

Default-user

This is what I get when I upload the Zip file: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Default-user

Never mind, I’m being dumb. Got the site to work thank you!

LoveThemes

No worries.

Quick question, final issues is how I can change the Header text and color? Thanks in advance!

LoveThemes

You’ll need to modify the CSS for it in assets/css/application.css

Default-user

Hey thanks for the quick reply. Can you tell me what line is it that I should be looking at that would help me greatly. I have to apologize if this obvious for someone, but I’m just a beginner, part from that everything else works just great.

LoveThemes

Search for #tagline.

Default-user

I’m talking about HEADER text color, not about the tagline color. Thank you for your patience

Default-user

Yes that one

Default-user

Here is my website: http://clandivision.com/ and I would like to change the black Division text

LoveThemes

Yeah, header, http://d.pr/i/8yJq look for #tagline.

Hello, I am really pleased with the Refinery theme. However, I cannot import sample data on my wordpress. I get the following error:

“Sorry, there has been an error. The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads.”

I have tried solutions offered in forums (changing file permissions, adding uploads folder manually, ticking/unticking uploads option to organise it by year/month, disabling plugins etc.). I even contacted my domain support and they said they have “moved your domain to its dedicated application pool which should fix if there are any server related issues”. I am still getting this error.

Are you able to advise on how to resolve this? Thanks a lot.

LoveThemes

It’s gotta be a permissions error in your server, the same data is just an XML file that imports the data from the demo.

Sounds like you don’t have correct write permissions.

Default-user

Thanks for your response. I will try get that resolved with my server.

However, there is another issue I am having. I have installed the theme according to your docs instructions (tried both wordpress admin and ftp), but I keep getting error “The requested theme does not exist. Stylesheet is missing.” when I click on Custom CSS, and creating child theme does not work either. I tried installing/reinstalling with disabled plugins and still nothing.

Please assist. Thank you in advance.

LoveThemes

Extract the actual theme from the download, you’re trying to upload EVERYTHING.

Default-user

I am uploading extracted Refinery folder that contains _MACOSX and refinery folders. I even tried uploading refinery folder within it alone, but that got me cheatin’! error.

LoveThemes

Open your download, inside you will see Documentation and refinery.zip, this is the theme.

Default-user

Yes, I installed refinery.zip through wordpress admin, but it didn’t work. So I tried ftp of the extracted refinery.zip file, but I am still getting the same error. I updated wordpress to latest version 3.8.1 if that is of any help. Don’t understand why it doesn’t work?

Default-user

Just tried reinstalling theme through wordpress admin, and it didn’t even complete giving me error “The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads.” same as when trying to import sample data. Is this all to do with my server permissions then??

LoveThemes

Sounds like it could be, not a single person has had an install issue.

Default-user

Thanks for your replies, I can confirm the issue has been resolved by my host and the theme is working fine now :)

LoveThemes

Awesome, thanks for letting us know.

I bought the Refinery skin from yourself and I’m having a few problems with it. I’m trying to set up a page with comments, however, with the skin in use, it does not display any comments nor does the submit button appear on the page until you hover over it. (which would be the result of wild guesswork) I tested the page with another skin and it displays the comments, submit button and form correctly and as it should, therefore this indicates that it is a problem with the skin. Is this a known issue with the skin? And can you advise me how to fix, or provide me with an updated skin which corrects these issues. Regards,

LoveThemes

Comments where? What submit button? Screenshot or link?

Default-user

This is what it looks like with Refinery skin: http://i.imgur.com/voZpPgW.png

Here is the submit button: http://i.imgur.com/HOxfQ20.png

And this is what it looks like with test skin I tried http://i.imgur.com/6AgGrj9.png

LoveThemes

What have you modified? If you check the demo you’ll notice the commentbox is dark with a white button, yours is white.

LoveThemes

Wait, have you just tried dropping a commentbox inside a page? That won’t work.

Hello!

Quick question: is it possible to change the author name on the portfolio pages?

Thanks!

M

LoveThemes

You can do that from your wordpress admin, this is a wordpress setting not a theme setting.

tmdi
tmdi Purchased

That is true of the individual pages, but does not seem to apply to the portfolio pages.

LoveThemes

The theme does not create pages, you do.

tmdi
tmdi Purchased

The portfolio pages and the pages are separate. There is no field to alter the author on the portfolio-created pages. Are you saying this is not how the theme works?

tmdi
tmdi Purchased

Here are screen caps of the Portfolio pages dashboard(http://i1316.photobucket.com/albums/t609/techmdinc/portfolio_zps9cd9a9f1.jpg) and the Pages dashboard (http://i1316.photobucket.com/albums/t609/techmdinc/pages_zps347f9a04.jpg). As you can see, the Pages dashboard does include the choice to alter the author, as stated, but the Portfolio dashboard, which appears with the installation of the theme, does not. Am I missing something?

LoveThemes

The portfolio items are not pages, they are posts, you edit those under Portfolio.

tmdi
tmdi Purchased

Can you explain how to do that? Obviously I am missing something.

LoveThemes

Download the latest version and upload that, make sure under screen options tab at the top the Author box is checked.

Okay, I have upgraded. As you can see here (http://i1316.photobucket.com/albums/t609/techmdinc/portfolioupgraded_zpsbd44ef14.png) the Author box is not an option on the Portfolio screen.

LoveThemes

Are you sure you have upgraded correctly, this is the demo server: http://d.pr/i/LNEq

tmdi
tmdi Purchased

Pretty sure. I deleted the 1.0 theme and uploaded the 1.2 theme. The new linkedin icon is there. Not sure how I could have messed it up.

LoveThemes

Open functions/fn.posttypes.php, look at the portfolio post type function near the top, in the ‘supports’ section, it should have ‘author’ in there.

tmdi
tmdi Purchased

It did not. I have edited it. Thanks.

I’d love to write custom CSS, but there is no CSS to reference on the stylesheet. I uploaded the theme via ftp, and even updated the stylesheet to one you provided to another user in an earlier comment.

I’m not a novice, but I’m also not an expert. Am I just missing something entirely?

LoveThemes

The custom CSS is just a standalone stylesheet for you to either add or override CSS.

It is in Appearance > Custom CSS, and any CSS you like there.

Default-user

The stylesheet for the theme is blank. I haven’t written any custom CSS because there is nothing written in the theme’s stylesheet for me to override.

LoveThemes

It’s supposed to be blank, it’s a place for you to write YOUR own CSS without editing the original theme CSS, so if you make a mistake you can just delete everything in there and it will revert back to the theme default.

Hi again, iKreativ!

so I’m trying to tie up some loose ends, I can’t seem to change the css file where its set to make images 100% width. there is nothing in it? can you tell me the css that I can add to the custom css file? perhaps that will simplify this process??

also the drop down menu seems to always show up under “about us”, no matter what its actually under. And I am unable to select drop down elements as they disappear. Any thoughts?

http://www.consciousaging.ca

thanks!!

LoveThemes

Look in assets/css/scaffolding.css

The nav hover was fixed in a recent version, grab the latest version.

Default-user

ok, I looked there, those look like they pertain to column widths? I don’t see anything regarding image?

I’ve also re-downloaded the files and upgraded and I’m still getting the sub menu off to the left hand side.

Default-user

I think I found the image reference .one_half img, .one_third img, .two_third img, .one_quarter img, .one_fifth img { height: auto; }

I added the above to custom css (child theme) am I missing something?

LoveThemes

Yes, but you’d be better removing the width: 100% from those selectors actually in scaffolding.css rather than trying to overwrite in custom css

Also, I found how to stop the spin from happening when hovering over a portfolio image on the homepage module, but how do I stop the same spin from happening portfolio item page?

Also, is there a way to add text in below or above the contact form without it only using the one third colum?

last question as well, is there any way for me to add widgets to the footer? this would be fairly important especially if I can’t get instagram, tumblr, and flickr as social media links down there.

LoveThemes

Spin? You mean the CSS transform on hover? Open single-portfolio.php and remove the ‘zoomy’ class from the image.

You would need to ‘widgetize’ the footer to add widgets, take a look on the Wordpress Codex for how to do that.

As for the icons, possibly in the next update.
