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 :)

BoxyStudio

Sorry I know… I haven’t updated Self in quite a while but it’s on my list of to dos to do a completely makeover of this theme.

That is excellent news. I’ve been burned in the past with themes on WP, so I generally research the hell out of themes and the people behind them. I ALWAYS come back to your theme here, I just need proper blog support.

Nothing fancy mind you. I really don’t want to pay $55 for a theme that I will only use as a CV with the occasional blog post. But I would rather put my money towards something excellent like this, than…well…other themes :)

BoxyStudio

Happy to know that! Stay tuned!

SynGamer

Curious – could I use the custom page option and somehow set that up for a basic blog?

BoxyStudio

You can’t unfortunately. The way the first Self was developed it left it very closed off to pages like that. However, here’s what I plan on releasing next week: http://demo.boxystudio.com/self-two/ ;)

BoxyStudio

I even built and released a free plugin to power the resume portion of the theme: http://wordpress.org/plugins/resume-builder/

SynGamer

Sexy. Is there an option for a boxed view similar to the current Self?

BoxyStudio

There will be, yes :)

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. :)

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
