Hi sterlingwilliam,

Glad you love it! ;) to be honest I’m not quite understand with “any chance to have a Smooth Drop down menu and not the PopOut bar style??” which PopOut bar you are referring?

Rifki

sterlingwilliam

on mobile view/iphone here (most themes still use this but many are now doing Smooth dropdown responsive which just compliments the Flow of great themes like yours) ex: http://tradewindsinteriors.com http://kirkbridedesigns.com and LUV your work, just being more of a graphic artist, I gotta have the awesome visual and functional fluidity of this kind of mobile menu over the ‘PopOut bar’ style you and many themes still use… keep me posted if possible or in your future themes!! THNKS

Hi

I really love this theme. It’s my favorite so far but I’m having few problems: I can add sidebars only with the first version. After uploading the files to version 1.0.1 I add sidebars but they won’t show on the widgets page.

Also, the blog page is not right.. the first page loads too many entries. On page builder, when you enter the “Entries” block you cannot pull entries from all categories. If you do not select a category it will just show 10 posts.. so if you can find the time to address these issues please let me know what am I doing wrong.

(I disabled all plugins and tried to install a fresh copy of WP before writing here so I’m pretty sure there are some mini bugs that cause it).

Hi Ollieslock,

Glad you love it! Yeah i know it’s a bug since version 1.0.1 you can read my answer here to resolve that issue, http://themeforest.net/item/robust-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/discussion/4176764?page=6#comment_3600778.

To pull all categories on the page builder’s “entries” module just skip the category selector option, leave it not selected to any category. To make the post shows more that 10 change the max posts display on reading settings.

Hi Rifki,

I tried it but it shows all posts. Even after I select number of posts “2,3 or 4” it shows all posts.

Also, It’s loading some extra jscripts, I think. It won’t work with Gravity forms. I have to reset to default theme to create forms and only then switch back to this amazing theme!

So.. If you can address this in the next update, Highly appreciated!

Im having problems as well with my portfolio not being found.

Page not Found! Error 404! Sorry, but we couldn’t find the page you were looking for.

I’ve tried doing steps 1 and 2 below but it still is not working :(

1. Change your portfolio page slug for example : “work” or “projects” 2. Change the portfolio items slug through Fresh Panel -> Portfolio -> Overview, default is “portfolio”

Hi Jamie_humbug99,

Please always re-save your permalinks setting after changing the portfolio slug.

Hi gibokun,

Rifki congrats, this is one of the greatest themes I ever worked with. I have question for fonts. I need to have google fonts that are latin extended and utf-8 compatible. I see that you use fonts.php in framework, but I don’t understand how to include something like this in fonts.php: <link href=’http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Source+Sans+Pro&subset=latin,latin-ext' rel=’stylesheet’ type=’text/css’>

Thank you

rifki
rifki Author

Hi vzrandom,

Thanks a lot and glad you love it! ;)

As you can see on the line 62:
if ($font == 'Arimo') $font = 'Arimo:400,700';

Just put your preferred character set at the end of the code above, example:

if ($font == 'Arimo') $font = 'Arimo:400,700&subset=latin,latin-ext';

Good luck,

Rifki

Hi Rifki, where can I change the css of the buttons on Reveloution Slider?

rifki
rifki Author

Hi Mike,

There is “Edit CSS file” in the layer params box on your edit slides page, or simply put <a href="#" class="button">Button</a> on the layer text/html field to create a button as seen in the demo page.

Hello—I am working with the Robust Portfolios. How do I remove the the Page Title from Portfolio Items?

Also. How do I set the size of portfolio images? The slideshow view makes them rather large and grainy. Thank you.

rifki
rifki Author

Hi wfischer75,

1. Open single-portfolio.php remove line 3 to get rid of the Page Title on portfolio items.

2. Still in single-portfolio.php go to line 17 there is a code that look like:
$images_size  = ($layout == 'fullwidth') ? '960x480' : 'fullwidth';

Just change the last “fullwidth” to any size that you prefer. example:

$images_size  = ($layout == 'fullwidth') ? '960x480' : '300x200';

Rifki

Default-user

Wow! Thank you for the quick reponse Rifki. Greatly appreciated.

Default-user

Hi Rifki—I was not able to change the image size. In line 17, I changed the last “fullwidth” to 635×425. But nothing changed. The width of the image is still 960. Is there anything I am missing? Thank you.

Default-user

For example, how did you change the size of images at http://wp.rifki.net/themes/robust/portfolio/photoboot/ ?

rifki
rifki Author

Hi wfischer75,

'960x480' : 'fullwidth';

980×480 image size for portfolio with full width layout.

fullwidth image size for portfolio with left/right content layout.

So if you want to change the size on full width mode just replace 980×480 with WIDTHxHEIGHT , it can be any size depend on your needs.

Rifki

Default-user

That worked. Thanks again Rifki

i discovered where to change it in the style sheets. Where can I change the color of the contact form pop up that is on the bottom right side of each page… I believe by default it says Contact us and it defaults to red or green. Thanks

Hi catdi,

No you don’t need to update the CSS, if you want to add your custom style better use the Custom CSS code in the theme options instead of put directly on the theme style sheets file.

Hi doitmobile,

Please change folder & file permission of wp-content/themes/robust/framework/includes/frontend folder and all file in it to 777.

Rifki

Hi Again, we’ve changed the folder permission in server. But locally we changed all the files under fronted folder and still doesn’t work. Any other suggestions?

rifki
rifki Author

Hi doitmobile,

Usually changing the folder permission and files permission in frontend folder to make them writable by server should resolve the problem.

Also make sure the “file_put_contents” and “file_get_contents” is enabled in your server’s PHP configuration.

Rifki

Default-user

Its working now thanks

Default-user

Well not exactly.. we’ve changed a property and restart the server, the functionality begins to work. That’s ok, but we’ve deactivated again and restart the server… now it’s still working. Any suggestions, as it seems a bit odd

rifki
rifki Author

Hi doitmobile,

The system will generated custom-style.css file from the theme options settings using php “file_put_contents” function and only re-write the data if the file already exist.

When you have “file_put_contents” activated it will put your settings to the custom-style.css and the data will stay there even the “file_put_contents” has been disabled but it will not able to put your new settings if the “file_put_contents” disabled. So better to make the “file_put_contents” enabled.

Rifki

Default-user

Thanks, To activate “file_put_contents” we have set the “allow_url_fopen” and “allow_url_include” to “on” in the php.ini. Is that what you mean?

I notice on this thread of your theme a number of people have had issues saving their logo within the theme. Has this been their problem or is there an issue with the theme saving the logo and if so, has this been resolved?

Also, Malickmerchant commented about H1 tags - “I have noticed something very important related to On Page SEO in the theme.

On the Single Post page the Category Title (in hgroup div, page-title.php) is in H1 and the same time the Blog Post Title is also H1, which shouldn’t be.

There should be only 1 H1 Tag on any page, which is good SEO practice.

Please change the Category Title to H2, and Post Title to H1.

Note: It works ok on the Archive Sections & Static Pages, don’t change it.”

Has this been resolved? This is a very important seo structure and need confirmation.

Hi Steve,

1. Yes those people had issue either on their WordPress installation and/or folder permission in their servers. I’ve test the theme on several shared hosting such as DreamHost & Fatcow even on a cloud hosting and never had any issues.

2. I’ve fix this and will come in next update, I hope next week.

Hi Rifki

Great looking theme and nice to see you active on the support front.

Question for you, is it possible (via the page builder or the shortcode) to add portfolio items from one or more categories to a page?

e.g. last three portfolio items from the advertising category

Cheers

Thanks for the quick response.

I dont suppose you are able to say roughly when such a feature might be added? e.g. days, weeks, months

I am about to start a project and this is a key feature of my design.
