Will this theme ever get blog support? Not having the blog support is the ONLY thing holding me back from buy this. I’ve literally been checking on this for a couple of years now :)

SynGamer

Excellent. Any word on price? This constant $30, 35, 40+ that Themeforest seems to continuously change after releases is frustrating. I’ve had a few purchases go from $25 to $35 within a few days, which has ultimately stopped my from buying.

BoxyStudio

Unfortunately we don’t pick the prices, so I’m not sure what it will be. It’s feature-lite so I’m assuming not too high. :)

BoxyStudio

Blog support has been added, and the new theme has been uploaded as a free update for Self 1.x customers!

Hi There! I have written an email about this but thought I’d see if I could get a quicker response this way. I have created my website www.jacquicollis.com and there is an issue in the Resume Builder, when I use apostrophes (‘) the system adds backslashes \\\. How do I fix this? I have tried to write in a plain text editor and paste in but no luck.

Also when I type a skill that is too long (e.g. ‘Marketing and Communications’), the word overlaps with the stars.

Can you share the code to fix this?

Many thanks for your help :) Jacqui

BoxyStudio

I shot you a response via email! :)

I uploaded a new header image and it’s no longer responsive. How can I fix this?

BoxyStudio

Hmmm, can you shoot me a ticket with your login information so I can take a look? Thanks! http://boxystudio.com/support/

I’m having a little trouble with the portfolio pages:

How do I remove the share buttons? I uncheck ‘Show sharing buttons’ and update/publish the page, but they still show up in lightbox and the checkbox is back to being checked on the Edit Portfolio page.

Is it possible to redirect a portfolio item to a different url when it’s clicked? Either within lightbox or when clicking from the Portfolio page to open lightbox?

Thanks for all your work, I really love the theme!

BoxyStudio

Sorry, where are you seeing the “Show sharing buttons” checkbox? This isn’t part of the Self theme, so it might be a plugin setting that you’re seeing there.

And no, you cannot redirect the portfolio, sorry about that.

Something I should mention. Self Two has been submitted and is under review at the moment. It should be available within a week: http://demo.boxystudio.com/self-two/

The ‘Show sharing buttons’ box shows when editing a portfolio item. Below the main editing window, I have the following boxes: Portfolio Options, Excerpt, Discussion, Comments, Author, and Sharing. Perhaps this is part of JetPack?

I only have that and Akismet for plugins. I haven’t enabled any sharing features in JetPack. When I click on a portfolio item, lightbox opens up. At the bottom left there are ‘Tweet’ and ‘Like’ buttons.

On your Self Two theme, I noticed captions within the Envira Gallery. Is it posible to include links in the captions?

Oh, and thanks for the quick response!

BoxyStudio

Yeah the Sharing block is not mine, so that must pertain to something else. The tweet and like buttons are there by default, there is no option to turn them off. Sorry about that!

And no I don’t think there’s a way to include links in the captions (although I haven’t tried putting some HTML links in there yet, so possibly).

Hello,

first of all, great theme! I’ve read your following reply: “Something I should mention. Self Two has been submitted and is under review at the moment. It should be available within a week: http://demo.boxystudio.com/self-two/"

Any news on this? I am waiting for Self 2, especially the boxed version :)

BoxyStudio

Yeah it got rejected. :(

I’m working on getting it approved, but it might take a week or two to get through the process again. Sorry about the delay.

BoxyStudio

Self Two is now available (as a free update to Self 1.x users, or you can buy it from this very product page!)

Hi, I’m having some trouble with links and the main menu. I’ve created three pages and added them to the menu. However, when I click each item, only the Home page reloads. Also all my pages have “page_id” URLs, even though under Permalinks I’ve specified custom URLs. So no internal links within my site are working. Any help or insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

BoxyStudio

Follow the documentation to set up the pages properly. Self is a unique theme in that the menu pages are all loaded at once and you click on each one to show/hide the pages. The documentation should give you some insight into what I mean. :)

Default-user

Thanks! I figured it out. One more thing: I added internal links to the Home page but when they’re clicked, they only go back to the Home page. They only work if they’re opened in a new window. Any ideas why they would be behaving like this?

BoxyStudio

Yeah unfortunately Self is quite limited in this way because it’s meant to be a simple vCard theme. Internal links won’t work quite right in their default way. What you have to do is use the URL that shows up when you click on one of the nav items. They look something like this: http://demo.boxystudio.com/self-wordpress/#resume

Congratulations for the upgrade, the theme is beautiful. I need some information, how can insert the contact info in homepage? Thanks

BoxyStudio

Thanks!

You need to use the new Resume Builder plugin to build out your resume. In that builder, you’ll find the contact information. Once you’re done creating that you can use the shortcodes to add the contact information to the sidebar there. This might help a bit: http://docs.boxystudio.com/article/56-documentation-resume-builder

Default-user

thanks, works perfectly

This theme is GREAT! I bought the original and blew up my site (my fault not the themes) and when I went to re-download Self Two was there. A quick question with the resume builder – I am having an issue that the content is not showing up in the proper order? No matter how many times or ways I change it.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

BoxyStudio

Go ahead and update to v1.1, the issue has been fixed. :)

Default-user

Yay! It’s all fixed! Thanks so much for getting this issue fixed so quickly! :)

BoxyStudio

Woo! Glad to hear it!

First of all, Great Theme! Very satisfied with it!

Now my question: I am having a small problem with the “Banner”, it doesn’t seem responsive, am I correct?

Thanks.

BoxyStudio

It doesn’t shrink, no. I needed to make sure the banner text could still fit, and if the image shrunk down, the height of the image would get too small for the text to fit. It was a “one or the other” situation. ;)

Hi,

I bought this Theme a few hours ago and still got problems with the languagefiles. I cannot translate the file, it still cause errors.

And how i can change the icons, because they looking on my installation different than on the demo site.

And i have some ”> on my Metatags between Date and Author.

Can someone help me please? Thanks alot

BoxyStudio

Shoot, sorry about that! Can you send a ticket with your login information so I can take a look? Thanks! http://boxystudio.com/support/

Default-user

Hi, i wrote a ticket yesterday, but still got no answer. In the meantime i fix it on my own (i hope :D ). But you can help me otherwise… How do you get the Sidebar (with widgets) on the blog and how did /category not appear?

boxed version doesnt work?

BoxyStudio

Can you be more specific? I have the boxed view enabled on the demo and it’s working fine: http://demo.boxystudio.com/self-two/

hi there, I bought your theme. works great! is it possible to build in a captcha in the contactform?

BoxyStudio

There might be a plugin you can use for that. I would suggest Gravity Forms or Contact Form 7 to build out your forms.

Hello,

Is the theme compatible with WPML? Will it be possible to switch between languages?

Thanks

BoxyStudio

Not fully tested with WPML yet, no. I do plan on adding support soon though.

Hi. Recently bought this theme and really love it. In terms of the social icons at the top of the page, any chance of adding some additional ones? SlideShare would be a great one to have in terms of a professional profile. Flickr would also be good.

BoxyStudio

I’ll add them both to the list!

Hi there.

Great work on the update to v2. I haven’t downloaded it yet but I have a quick question.

In v1, it was possible to add videos to the portfolio….has this option been removed? In the demo, there are only images in the portfolio.

Thanks

Default-user

Ah….nevermind. Totally got my themes confused! As you were…

BoxyStudio

No problem. :)

Hi, Could you please tell me how to disable the banner on homepage completely?

Thanks

BoxyStudio

You can choose to just use a regular page template (instead of the homepage). The homepage template requires a page banner unfortunately.

Hey,

First of all, thanks for this awesome template. 2 small questions though.

-Could you please tell me the optimale banner image size for a boxed layout? I am having troubles optimizing the home page banner..

- What is the optimal background image size?

Thanks.

Oh yes, is there any way to make the banner responsive? I don’t use the text layers… I’d rather have a responsive banner instead of text layers (which I don’t have) being displayed correctly.

The website looks awesome on mobile devices except for the banner :(

BoxyStudio

Homepage banner should be about 1040×580, though like you said it doesn’t shrink down like you would expect because there is meant to be text there.

The background image should be about 2000px by 1000px or so. You’d have to play with it to see what works best for you.

I will see what I can do about adding an option to make the banner shrink in width AND height instead of showing text there. :)

That would be absolutely awesome! Thanks! Would be really great is everything is responsive :) Have a good weekend!

I know this is a daft question, but I’m new to purchasing themes for WP. When it comes to updates, do they automatically show as available in my WP dashboard, or do I have to reinstall the theme? I notice that this theme had an update on 30 August but I don’t appear to have anything on my WP dashboard indicating that an update is available. Advise would be much appreciated :)

BoxyStudio

Yep, the updates should show up in the dashboard. What version of the theme do you have now?

Default-user
ijclark Purchased

Version 2.0 according to my WP themes dashboard.

BoxyStudio

The latest version is 2.0.5. Feel free to update by downloading from your ThemeForest Downloads page (if you don’t see the update in WordPress).

jwvb Purchased

Quick question: Is there a changelog available? or any other way to see what is the latest version of the theme? Normally the changelogs are on the theme front page but I can’t find it..
