Hi, before I buy your beautyful theme. I have a few question: is it possible to put the menu on top horizontal? I want 3 horizontal rows on the homepage. Each row is a catagory of the portfolio. Is this possible? I hope for a positive answer :) Marika

Planetshine

Hey. this is not possible by default. Such a modification can probably be made, but it definitely won’t be easy and will require solid web development skills.

Thanks. Yes that is what I thought. I’m first going to search for an other theme. Maybe if I can’t find a solution I’ll return to you

Hi and thanks for an original theme. However, I have a problem with a page that has comments enabled. Comments are now stacked on a single column, so that several comments or even one long one can fill the screen vertically and the rest of the text cannot be seen. Is there a way to get the comments flowing dynamically across several columns like regular page text? I managed to get comments showing side by side on screen, but very long comments still get cut at the bottom of the screen.

Planetshine

Hey, no we designed the theme not to split the comment text, instead just placing comments on separate columns when there is not enough space in the original column. This can not be changes without going very deep in the theme code.

I wish to replicate the dark style you have exactly, is there a stylesheet I should be replacing or renaming? any easier way than trying to manually match all the colors?

I don’t suppose there’s any way I can post videos sized more like the portfolio gallery items other than the iframe method which makes them very small?

Okay, all I really need to know now is:

1: What are the shortcodes to make a page show like this http://planetshine.net/demo/regolith-wp/portfolio/ I made a page called “Guides” that I want to display portfolio items in the format seen on that portfolio page, is this even possible?

2: My menu does not seem to know which page is currently active, so if I click on “Blog” and it goes to blog page it doesn’t become a recessed button with the color changes, etc. When I’m at the homepage it doesn’t have the homepage button recessed and shown as the present page.

Planetshine

1) The portfolio page is not made with a shortcode, so creating such a page will be more difficult. If you have the necessary coding skills you can create a new template based on the archive-portfolio.php file.

2) Can you give me a link to your site? This seems to be working ok on my end.

Hello there. Great theme and I have the site up and running but I have a couple of issues that have been driving me mad, where I could please do with your help and expertise:

www.solid.uk.com

1) On the homepage down to the ‘recent portfolios’ gallery. The thumbnails show but links are not working on the iphone.

2) Also, am having trouble with the gallery player not working properly on: www.solid.uk.com/portfolio/ Once ‘show older posts’ is clicked and more posts are delivered, they display ok (and the h tag links and main image links are working) but again the linking on the thumbnails is gone and the controls don’t work either.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks Dave

I’ll email you as the client is a bit keen for me to get things fixed. Thanks for the kind words! It’s a great, alternative theme to work with, what can I say! Great support too!...

All fixed and working good. Michael Winner. Thanks Planetshine.

Hi! Thank you for the theme!

I would like to know if it’s possible to show the portfolio items in the home page with the same presentation as the blog items. I tried to modify the code myself without success.

Thanks!

Planetshine
It’s not possible without making bunch of modifications to the code. You can try to start by going to theme/shortcodes.php and copying the sc_post_list function, renaming it and registering a new shortcode for the porftolios. Then replace this:
$items = plsh_get_post_collection($args, $count); 
with this:
$items = plsh_get_post_collection($args, $count, 1, 'date', 'DESC', 'portfolio');  
I have not tested any of this, but it should at least get you on your way.

hi there i would like to not show, when visualizing a portfolio, data and number of comments, plus who have published it (they showed just under the portfolio’s name)

which file should i edit?

also: how can i add icon to each value of the main menu?

also: how can i show the portfolio in homepage with small thumbnails (i’d like to show 12 portfolio there), there’s any parameter to add in the shortcode for portfolio?

thanks

i’ve solved menu problem with icon.

Planetshine

Hey,

1) To remove the date, comments, author row from portfolio list paste this in custom CSS box in theme settings.

.post-type-archive-portfolio .date-comments-1 { display: none; 

To also remove it from single portfolio pages, paste this

.single-portfolio .date-comments-1 { display: none; }

2) Nice.

3) There is a count parameter that you can use.

[portfolio_list count="12"]

These are all the possible parameters:

[portfolio_list count="6" title="Portfolio posts" category="travel" tag="mountains" /]

solved also the data/comment and problem

need help to show portfolio with smallest thumbnails

another request:

is it possibile to show the name of the portfolio in homepage, on mouse over ? (like in the post section in homepage, just below the Eye)

thanks

Planetshine

Yes, it possible, but it will require you to edit some CSS&PHP code. The porfolio item is generated in the file theme/templates/loop-portfolio-shortcode-item.php. The title can be echoed using php function the_title();

Hi.

I wish to change the icons in the home page but cannot find them for column_item icon=”globe”,suitcase and leaf.

Please help

Planetshine
Hey,

You can use any of the icons listed here: http://fontawesome.io/3.2.1/icons/

The shortcode in question is this:

 [column_item icon="globe" title="Lorem Ipsum" description="There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available"/]

Hi,

I have just purchased the template and I’ve got some questions.

Is there any way to avoid pictures to be cropped, either horizontally or vertically ? What size should they have to best fit on homepage slider, portfolio list and portfolio standalone page? When the window size changes, is there anyway to resize the full image instead of cropping it? (By crop, I mean cut, shrink …)

Thank you!

Planetshine
Hey, you can prevent the images to be hard cropped horizontally by doing couple of changes. First you have to edit regolith/theme/settings.php and change this:
'post_picture' => array( 1360, 1360, true ),
to this:
'post_picture' => array( 1360, 1360, false ),
(remember to regenerate thumbnails afterwards. I suggest this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

Then you have to edit the CSS for images in question and set their background sizes from cover to contain. Here’s one example:

.blog-list .item .image { background-size: cover !important; }

The trick is that there is no one correct images size for Regolith images, since they vary with browser window height. Anyway we recommend to have something larger than 1360×1360 so the WP thumb resizer can do it’s thing.

Thank you, I managed to display images as wished =)

I saw few times a similar question in the comments, but is there any way to have exactly the same display as portfolio page http://planetshine.net/demo/regolith-wp/portfolio/ when filtering by portfolio category?

Many thanks!

Planetshine

No, not really. You can not add categories there. We suggest you use menu submenus for filtering the portfolio.

I am having a challenge in renaming Slider link “read more” to “learn more” and make the link to slide to Homepage “Latest from blog” section without opening a new page.Please help

Planetshine

Hey, that can be achieved by editing regolith/theme/templates/shortcodes.php. Look for this around line 55.

<?php _e('Read more', PLSH_THEME_DOMAIN); ?>

I’m not sure I understood you about the second part of your question. You wish to make the slider “learn more” click to slide the browser window to the blog post section on homepage? This will not be easy to accomplish.

I am having a challenge in renaming Slider link “read more” to “learn more” and make the link to slide to Homepage “Latest from blog” section without opening a new page.Please help.

Planetshine

See the answer below ;)

How can I rename “read more” button .and how can I refer a link to “Latest from blog” page in homepage.

Planetshine

Het, check you e-mail ;)

How do you make column wrap shortcodes images clickable in the code.I have tried the Link Attribute but its not working .Where and how should I add the link

[column_item image=”http://www.xxxxx.com/icon.png” title=”Land” description=”Annuity, an Investment in the future”/]

Planetshine

Right now it seems that the links are working ok, just like on our end. I assume you managed to solve this on your own?

Default-user

Not really,i want to open http://www.muddywatersltd.com/portfolio/fumigation/ when I click read more button.but the link is taking me to http://www.muddywatersltd.com/portfolio/.Please help

Planetshine

Can you please clarify which “read more” button exactly would you want to lead to http://www.muddywatersltd.com/portfolio/fumigation/ ? Right now it seems that you can easily access that via the orange “pest control and Fumigation” icon.

Hello, can i have the tips send to abjetz, i have the same question ! thanks Berline

Hi, I’m using the Regolith theme and loving it!! You’ve done such an amazing job.

In the demo site at: http://planetshine.net/demo/regolith-wp/portfolio/ The user can filter the portfolio items by ”Recent Portfolio” or ”Featured Posts”.

Wondering if there is a way to filter portfolio items by portfolio-category. I looked through the documentation by did not see anything. Is there a shortcode directive or other method I can use?

Same for blog posts. The demo page at: http://planetshine.net/demo/regolith-wp/blog/ allows the user to filter by ”Recent posts”, “Latest comments”, or ”Featured posts”.

Is there a way to do this using the blog post categories (or tags) as the filter conditions? That’ll be fantastic.

Many thanks in advance, looking forward to your response. :-)

Planetshine
Hey,

I’m glad you like Regolith! :)

We did not add option to filter them in blog/portfolio page because people tend to have hundreds of tags and it would not look to good in this design. The only way to show unlimited amount of items would be to place select boxes somewhere.

The easiest way to provide the filtering for portfolio/blog is to use the main menu. Add a link to categories under portfolio/blog item.

If you wish to have something more advanced then this will have to be made custom. Adding categories above posts and having them function in the same way as the current filters will be tricky since you would have to code ajax loading for them etc.

Hi.I have to admit that this is one of my best templates ever.Good work.

How can I adjust the width of images in css or php file for the new pages I make because by default they are slimmer and I wish them to look wider.One more question,how can I make the column_item image responsive so that they display vertically and isolated in phones,because by default they cling together.

Thanks

Planetshine
Hey,

Can you clarify which images exactly would you like to make wider? The post thumbnails? The portfolio items? Simply the columns width for certain pages?

Try pasting something like this in the custom css box in theme settings:

.main-headlines .item-wrapper { float: none !important;
width: 100% !important; }

Thanks for your quick reply.It worked.Hope you had a nice weekend.Sorry tho’ for not being precise about the page.The new page attributes -parent (no parent).I have tried to customize the image size as

but still doesn’t work.Both paragraph and image column remain the same

Planetshine
You are probably reffering to portfolio image slider. It can be done by adding a wordpress gallery to the portfolio post and saving it.
Click on "Add media" right above the post text editor. Choose "Create gallery". Select the pictures you want to display in portfolio and when you are done click on "Create new gallery". This will cause a gallery object to be inserted into the post.

Save the post and open it on front end of your page.

Hello, sorry but no it’s not what i’m talking about, in the screenshot gallery in themforest presentation, look at the screenshot n° 5 and you can see what i mean. it doesnt looks like the gallery insert with the “create gallery” method.
