Hello Qode,

I noticed 2 little bugs on my iPad 4:

- Mega Menus don’t show. - On a gallery, it’s a real challenge to know where to put your finger when you want to see a picture in a lightbox.

Best regards,
Florence.

QODE

Hi,

We will take a look. We already tested it on iPad 4, but we will do it again.

Thanks for your note :)

This seems a very simple and beautiful design. Is the main reason that you don’t have IE8 listed as compatible because of the animations. Can these be disabled? And, if so, would it be fairly compatible? So many of my users unfortunately still use this outdated browser. Thanks.

QODE

Hi,

We used a lot of html5 and css3 stuff (animations, rounded corners, transparency, html5 tags…) which are not good looking in ie8.

Some of animations could be turned of, but some of them can not. You can open River in ie8 and see how it looks, but we didn’t support that browser since it is outdated.

That makes sense – you have a lot of good stuff obviously, though. In the portfolio page: http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/portfolio/text-under-image/four-columns-grid/ – I need to disable tags, then add a few excerpt lines from post or custom text – either will do. Can this be done through theme admin? Also, on the single post: http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/portfolio_page/clash-mayhem-tv/ – I need some translation for the titles of ‘custom field’, ‘date’, etc. – I suppose this can be done fairly easily. Finally, the image height on the individual post I need much shorter – can this be done easily – can it be done simply by uploading the post image with a small height to width ratio alone? If this requires css modification or ftp stuff – I do not mind paying for a little help at all in advance. Let me know – sorry to be so wordy – I’m familiar with WP – but not an expert. Thanks.

bcatkins

After looking at the theme again – the blog may be just as easy to work with. For this I need the post date and tags removed on the list page and the individual post page – is this easier to do? And I’d like to direct the same ? regarding the image height size for the this as well.

QODE

Hi,

Regarding portfolio list, tags (categories) could be removed via custom css, but for excerpt it would require edits in templates.

Regarding single portfolio, yes you can translate labels such as “date and about”, and “custom filed” you are creating it by yourself so you could put any text there. As for the images, you can upload images smaller in height and they will be shorter.

As for the paying stuff, sorry but we don’t take custom work.

Regarding blog, we could help you to add some custom css to hide those infos. As for the images, same answer as for portfolios, yes :)

Hello Qode!

Is there a way to show the Excerpt text for the live filtering Portfolio items inserted on the home page?

(I have some knowledge in working with the php files and custom css etc. but would love to have some guiding).

Also, is there a way to make the Category text under each Portfolio item “clickable” for further/quicker filtering? Now the text is just showing for no real good reason.

Thanks a lot for great theme and support!

Regards Ola

QODE

Hi,

Thank you :)

You could go in includes/shortcodes.php and find “portfolio part” (line 896), there you could try to insert your excerpt.

As for the categories, same answer as above, but please notice that portfolios are custom post types and maybe some category fixes or edits will not effect custom post types.

Best Regards

Qode

olanygards

Impressive quick answer!

Thanks a lot!

I also have a problem with making full width Parallax sections (Row Type) in a single Portfolio page. It constrains to the “main” grid, and not like when I do the same thing on Pages (Since in Pages, I can choose the Template “Full Width” to make it work, and I don’t have that option with Portfolio items).

Any quick thoughts on that one?

Thanks a lot again, its really great to get help!

QODE

Hi,

Thank you :)

As for the portfolio single pages, they have predefined templates already, you can see them on our demo.

I really like the side (slide open) menu on mobile devices, but not on the desktop because it is redundant – but it is also redundant to have two menu options on mobile. Is there a way, either in settings or CSS, to not show the side (slide open) menu option on the regular view, but then make it the only option for a menu on the mobile view. In other words, on a desktop I would not see the side icon, but then on a mobile I would only have that and not the icon for the regular menu.

Seems that that would fix many of the issues with the mobile navigation because then theme owners can create a mobile only menu in the side menu.

Thanks again for the great support and willingness to answer all our questions.

QODE

Hi,

Well, yes, something could be done via custom css :)

@media only screen and (min-width: 1000px){
.side_menu_button_wrapper,
    .side_menu{
        display: none;
    }
}
@media only screen and (max-width: 1000px){
    .mobile_menu_button{
        display: none !important;
    }
}

Hi, Love the theme, I am setting it up now and have a few little problems, where can I find the styling for unordered lists? also I have a space below my header and full width slider??

QODE

Hi,

There is no specific styling for list. Color of bullets are changed with changing of colors in General Options, and text is changing with with “text style” in General Font Options. You could add some custom css too, to fit your needs.

As for the “space”, you are probably logged in into admin with same browser, so when you are viewing your site there is admin bar above it, and probably that is causing problem. You could turn that bar off in user admin or view your site in different browser.

aahhhhhhhhh, Is there a way I can add multiple images to a portfolio at once? Please tell me this is possib le, we are photographers and have up to 60 images in each portfolio and have over 30 portfolios….

Hi Qode,

I mean i want to show all my default blog posts like this portfolio page http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/portfolio/text-under-image/five-columns-wide-2/ .

Thanks

QODE

Hi,

You can do it. We only created portfolio post type to separate portfolios from default blog types, but you could use portfolio post types for your post, it is the same procedure of entering, just showing in different way. There is one thing that is need to be changed, that is slug “portfolio_page” in url on single pages, but we can guide you where to change that.

Best Regards

Qode

Hi Qode,

Thanks for the reply. We can make our blog post layout like given above portfolio page.

Hi there,

Is there a way to make the header/menu stick to the top on the mobile phone version?

Thanks.

QODE

Hi,

Unfortunately no. If we enable that, on some screens header could take half of screen.

Regarding mobile menu – it looks like it could be a little confusing for some users – is there a way to make the menu go away after a choice is made from the menu – so that you see the site only again. And can there just be the one menu on the left? – Also some text that says ‘Menu’ or ‘Go to’ would be awesome. Just checking – beautiful theme!

QODE

Hi,

1. We will definitely improve our logic for that. That is on purpose since there is a anchor logic, and link may be a anchor, so if mobile menu is opened and you click on anchor, screen will be scrolled down to right place, but if menu closed itself after click, than screen will be scrolled to wrong place (wrong for the height of main menu)

2. You could turn off side menu on the right from Qode Options, but that would result to turn it off on all screens. We could help you to hide this right side menu by custom css only on mobile screens. As for the labels, unfortunately, that is not available in this theme.

Best Regards

Qode

bcatkins

OK – in number 1 above you mentioned that you might soon improve the logic for mobile menu regarding my concerns – will this be in an upcoming theme update? If so – might it be very soon – as I’m very interested in purchasing and working with it in that condition. Also – can you reply with the custom css you mentioned in number 2 above – I suppose that in theme options there is a place labeled as such that I could simple copy and paste the this custom css for this (I only say this as it seems to be done this way in most themes). Thanks – and I will be purchasing very soon!

QODE

Hi,

For both of your questions, answer is YES. If we manage to improve logic (which is on our to do list) it will be in our next update. As for the custom css, yes, there is filed for that in which you can copy the code.

Best Regards

Qode

bcatkins

Wonderful to hear that – do you think you next update might be by the week’s end?

QODE

Hi,

We will do our best.

How is improving the mobile menu logic going – do you think that there may be an update by Friday or so? Just checking – anxious to purchase and begin work.

QODE

Hi,

Update is planned for this weekend. It should be ready for Monday.

Hi Qode Team. Not sure this is a Bug, but it is frustrating.
I am using the “Medium Image Blog Layout” and making use of all the “Formats”
The issue I am having is with the “Gallery ” Format. I choose this to show a gallery, However I also want to add an article to the Blog Post But when in “galley” format it is NOT possible to have line breaks in the article, it’s just one block of text.
Is there anyway to make it possible to at least allow line-breaks in the articles when using “Gallery” Format
Thanks in advance
KD

QODE

Hi,

We are not sure what you are trying to tell. Are you saying this for blog list or blog single (video format)?

If it is for single, we see no problem, our single video post has linebreaks, and there is no problem with entering them.

If you are saying for list, probably you are using excerpt filed for text shown on list. This filed is not aware of line breaks (that is native WP field), and you should put “
” tags there manually.

Best Regards

I have a question about inserting the contact form on my site. I edited the “contact page” under “Qode Options” in the dashboard, but I am not sure how to place it on my contact page. Is there a shortcode for this? So far I really love the theme! Thanks, I look forward to your response.

QODE

Hi,

Once you setup your contact info in Qode Options, you just need to create page and choose “Contact page” template for it. That’s all.

Hello, wondering if someone can help…

I downloaded the layered slider once i uploaded the River theme (multi-purpose/responsive) but after filling out all the info needed for the slider to function, the slider comes out far off centered, is not full width, and the additional layers are straying outside of the slider itself.

Any ideas? Maybe I’ve missed an option or something to keep the slider centered?

Thanks! Loving the theme. Just need some advice on the slider.

Hi,

Did you put slider shortcode in predefined filed in Qode Custom Fileds on your desired page? Name of the filed is “Enter layer slider shortcode”.

I was wanting to get the plugin as and when you developed for the infographics, but could not resist buying river (even as I saw it jump from $40 to $45) – and enjoying the decision very well.

I have a feature request which hopefully should be very easy for you to implement.

The “process steps” element automatically inserts arrows in between the step circles. In order to enhance the scope of application of this element, I request you to add the following (I REALLY need it!) features.

1. Allow the user to define the symbol in between circles , at the very basic level , the 4 mathematical operators (plus (+), minus(-), multiplier (x), divider (รท)). This will provide a superb way to cook up some great formula!

2. Allow these circles to be clickable in 2 ways: (a) through normal hyperlinking (b) allowing any html to be produced just below the clicked circle (toggle style, into its owm vertical column space), preferably with ajax animation something like the smooth drop-down ‘list’ element. Needless to say, html content will be user fed.

Hope you see that this enhancement will be really useful in many creative ways!

I am awaiting your response eagerly!

Hi There,

I work with river and want to add a background video on my Home Page… How many Mo are required to upload it ? Because I try to load a 519 Mo video in the Medis range and it doesn’t work :-( Have you few advices or a tuto which is not noticed in the manual to use easily video with the River Template. Thank you. Baptiste

QODE

Hi,

What do you mean by “Mo video”?

Best Regards

Qode

QODE

You have to upload webm,mp4 and ogv file formats. webm i mp4 are mendatory if you want to cover most web browsers.

Default-user

HEY,

Mo for Megaoctets, i thought it was right. Where I upload my video ? In Media par ?

Thank you.

QODE

Hi,

Yes, you should upload your videos in Media part and then copy video url which you should put in predefined fields for videos url when you create sections with video backgrounds.

Best Regards

Qode

Default-user

Yes, but how I create a video background section ? Where is it ?

QODE

Hi,

When you create a “Row” via Visual Composer page builder. After that edit that row and there you have to chose type. Choose “Section” type. After that you new fields will be shown to you, among them are video fields.

Hey,

I can’t find it. Please have you a tutorial which explain the process. I don’t find the Visual Composer page builder to tick “Row”. Maybe is it Qode ? Where is this section ? Is it in visual composer Editor ? Please can you detail it or have you a link which explain this process ?

Hi River,

Here comes a Pre-Purchace question.

My logo is portrait.

Is it possible to lay down the logo over the slider a little bit, it would look much better than the mainmenu becomes a big white box.

Greetings Jesper

QODE

Hi,

Unfortunately, it is not possible here, because there is resize logic that is applied on logo, and it fits the logo to fit header and resize it on scroll.
