Hi there, I have done as you have said and I am getting a syntax error. I am not very good with the coding and your assistance here will be much appreciated. I have pasted the error message that I have below

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/youthven/public_html/wp-content/themes/relief/template-homepage.php on line 147

Hi frokem,

Just tested on my local version here and no such problems, if you want to send me your WordPress login details to help@quitenicestuff.com I’ll delete the code for you.

Thanks

Hi there,

After spending time digging into the code and counter checking I have been able to get it to work fine. Thanks for checking up on that as well.

As for now, I have another problem. The left column simply picks the latest 3 posts without filtering from any category, is there a way I can have this sorted and have it select posts from a pre-defined category? http://youthventuresini.org

Hi frokem,

Sure, just open “Relief/template-homepage.php” and edit the latest news query on line 100 – 106 (yours may be different as you’ve edited the file).

Change it from:

$args = array( 'posts_per_page' => $news_limit, 'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1, 'post_type' => 'post', 'order' => 'DESC', 'orderby' => 'date' );

To this:

$args = array( 'posts_per_page' => $news_limit, 'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1, 'post_type' => 'post', 'order' => 'DESC', 'orderby' => 'date' 'category_name' => 'your_category_name', );

Thanks

Question : I’ve disabled the code that displays the search box in the main menu bar, but now my menus don’t use the whole screen width, they wrap around prematurely… How can I fix this ? If you check out the site – you will see what I mean.

Thanks

Hi alhijrah,

You’ll need to edit the CSS , open “Relief/style.css” and increase the main menu width on line 420.

Thanks

Hi,

Great theme! For the donations, how is this set up in the Wordpress dashboard? I didn’t see a tab for that on the screenshot in the description. We have PayPal for our foundation, but wanted to confirm the set up process.

Thank you!

Hi Amanda_FL,

Thanks for your interest, you would need to either use an external donation service or you could download a free WordPress plugin such as this one to do the job: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/paypal-donations/

Thanks

Hi, I sent an email as well, but just wanted to post my questions here as well. www. austeneverettfoundation. org

1. I have created events and an Event page using the events template. However, when you click on the event, I receive a Page Not Found error. What am I doing wrong?

2. I was able to change some fonts using a plug-in. However, I’ve been unable to change the main menu, block text buttons or the black call-out bar on the homepage. What is the code for these? (i.e. h1, p, etc.)

3. On the Latest News feed on the homepage, the featured images are oddly cropped. How can I fix this?

4. Once you click on a Latest News item, the image is again oddly cropped in some cases. How can I change this?

5. Can I change the “posted on” font under the Blog post title, and removed “posted by Admin”?

6. How can I lessen the padding above and below the logo in the header?

7. Can I make the grey in the header and the sub-menu drop downs lighter?

Thank you! Amanda

Hi There

Great Theme, I am just off to see a client with this theme in mind and would love to use this on their website, could I just check – does your theme support child themes?

Thanks Maggie SugarFix Creative

quitenicestuff

Hi SugarFixCreative,

I would guess so yes, to my understanding basically all WordPress themes support child themes.

Thanks

Hi,

How does one set the ALT tag for images displayed on homepage slider (for seo purposes) ?

Many Thanks !

quitenicestuff

Hi alhijrah,

Open “Relief/functions/shortcodes/slideshow.php” and change line 40 and 44 from:

alt=""

To:

alt="' . $caption . '"

Hope that helps!

WordPress default password protection on posts and pages does not work with this theme for some reason. Is it possible to get an update?

quitenicestuff

Hi jpink,

Sorry thats a bug, to fix it open “Relief/functions.php” and on line 671 change:

action="' . get_option('siteurl') . '/wp-pass.php"

To this:

action="' . get_option('siteurl') . '/wp-login.php?action=postpass"

I’ll add a fix for this in the next update

Thanks

Hello, when I load the site, it takes a very long time for the slider to load and the images are jpgs, not pngs. Any idea why it would be so slow to load?

quitenicestuff

Hi pdelite,

A few things I can think of which would cause this:

1.) Your slideshow images are a large file size, try compressing them more 2.) Your website’s host is slow 3.) Your internet connection is slow

I’d hazard a guess and say its most likely #1, can you check the file size? a single slide shouldn’t really need to be more than 100kb

Thanks

Hi I am thinking about purchasing this theme for a non profit organization. This will be my first wordpress site and I would like to know who easy or hard is it add a widget that features upcoming events or a ticker that shows recent news?

And I have one more question… If I take your photoshop files, customize them in photoshop for my website, and upload them to be replaced by your images that come with the theme, will that be a difficult task for a first time user or wordpress?

quitenicestuff

Hi charity007love,

Are you referring to the latest news and events on the homepage? if so this is not difficult at all, its really just a case of setting a page template in WordPress and that’s basically it.

Regarding modifying images, its hard for me to say how difficult it would be. If you’re just changing images and retaining the original size then it wouldn’t be difficult at all I guess, if your design changes the structure of the theme then it could be a big challenging if you have no experience of HTML /CSS

Thanks

Two feature requests

1 when showing a list of post summaries, that the theme displays the summary text from the post’s own custom meta description if it exists (eg as hand created by YoastSEO) rather than simply the first n characters of the blog text. This allows for a neater handmade summary, rather than truncated xxx…...

2 that theme embedded descriptors for images support custom ALT tags, eg

instead of [slide image_url=”...” link_url=”...” caption=”...”]

the theme would support

[slide image_url=”...” link_url=”...” caption=”...” alttext =”...”]

for seo and support of visually impaired web users, the ideal is to provide alt entries of all pictures. You kindly described in an earlier post how to set the alt entry to the caption text, but an improvement would be allow different ones which allow more meaning to be conveyed.

eg caption =”Donate Now” alttext = “Picture of poor boy begging”

just suggestions for an already great theme….

quitenicestuff

Hi alhijrah,

I just added the alt text for the slideshow shortcode, the update is currently waiting for approval, I’ll add a comment here when its approved.

You will be able to use the following code:

[slide image_url=”...” link_url=”...” caption=”...” alt_text =”...”]

Regarding your other idea about the blog text, you could do this by using the more tag, more details here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More

Thanks!

quitenicestuff

Just a heads up, its available for download now!

Is there any chance that you will add a better way to add pictures for the frontpage slider? I bought this theme for a client, but having to manually enter the shortcodes for the slider will prevent them from being able to modify the site without my help. There are many great sliders available that can be added into the site, so I would encourage you to check into using one for a future revision of the theme. Thanks!

quitenicestuff

Hi faithengineer,

Thanks for the feedback, I’ve got no plans to implement something different for the slideshow currently as I think it works well. I understand not everyone is code savvy but I think the shortcodes can be used by anyone if you give them a little bit of training. Its really just a case of pasting a line of text and changing the URL to reflect the slide

Hello,

thanks for developing this theme. I would like that when my visitors are hover one sponsor in footer this image/logo will show an opacity of 0.60. How can i do this?

Best regards, Salva

quitenicestuff

Hi salvabiedma,

I’m afraid customization work like this isn’t covered in the scope of my support for this theme. I’d recommend searching Google for “jquery change opacity onclick”

Thanks

How do I change the Donate text in top right to a button?

quitenicestuff

Hi sassyx,

Login to WP and go to “Appearance > Theme Options > General Settings” and change it in the “Donate Button Text” field

I don’t want to modify the donate text I want the entire area replaced with a button. I want to get rid of the dotted circle, the donate+ text, the background, etc. and replace that area with a Donate Button

quitenicestuff

Hi sassyx,

Sorry my bad, I should have read your question better :p

Open “Relief/header.php”, then delete line 112 – 125 and replace it with your button code

Thanks

Hi! I was wondering where the code is embedded for the background/header. I wanted to made it shorter for our logo to not have an awkward white box. http://madeinnyc.communitynyc.us

Thank you

Hi risadsgn,

Just checked your website, its look like you solved it? If you need anything else feel free to contact me through support at help@quitenicestuff.com

hi, i’ve purchased this theme but it seems events don’t work. I can’t see events nor in the homepage (left column) nor in events page (empty page). In backend there are 4 events published, in frontend nothing. I can’t understand why. Any idea?

Thank you

Relief 1.6.2. WP 3 .4.2

ok, i’ve found solution. Past events disappear. I’ve modified DB query (template_events.php row 45-57): in this way is possible to have all events (incoming and past) in the events page. In homepage only incoming events.

Other way could be create an event archive. Next release new feature?

Bye

quitenicestuff

Hi fondodicaffe,

Yep you’re correct, the theme automatically hides past events. I’ll see about adding an option at some point so you can choose weather they’re hidden or not

Thanks
