HI,

Thank you for the theme.

Question:

I like to learn a couple things. Your insight or direction would be appreciated. Shortly said I would like to have a subsection of this blog posts on the Selfy theme home page http://themecanon.net/themes/selfy-default/blog-full-width/

We have a WP Dev that can edit. The thought was if it requires code changes you would communicate which file/s to edit.

BTW I notice on same link, the quote (2nd from the top) how is that created? Maybe you can point me to directions as wel.

Thank you Frank

Hi Frank,

This is a quote post format, you can select this when creating your post.

Hi thanks for quick reply. Great and the first question as well, regarding posting the entire format of the given link?

Can you explain what you mean by subsection? if you just want your blog as the home page, you can already do this under WordPress settings front page display:

Hi,

Is there anyway to duplicate the different sections that are included on the home page. I want to duplicate the “About Us” section so i have another text area on the home page.

Is it possible to duplicate the different sections that are available on the home page?

thanks

Kieran

Hi Kieran, No sorry, the home page is not flexible in this way.

Hi – loving your theme! I’d love to hide the featured image for my posts. I’ve selected Hide from Gallery as well as Hide Featured Image from post slider – - this results in the featured image being hidden from the post page itself, but the featured image is still displayed on the blog page above the excerpt. I’d like to hide the featured image from this blog page. Any info sincerely appreciated – thanks!

Forgot to mention: I really want to keep specifying a featured image, for optimal SEO… but I don’t want to see that large image on the blog page. That’s why I’m asking. Thanks!

Hi, I’m afraid it is not possible to have a featured image but then not display it on the blog page. You will need to customize the theme to achieve this variant.

I purchased Selfy as part of an Envato bundle. Am I not able to upgrade it?

Hi Tim,

Try adding this to the Final Call CSS section in the advanced tab instead.

That worked, thank you! Is it possible to adjust the vertical placement of masthead text? I’m not finding a way to do so.

Try this:

#slides .cta {
    margin-top: 300px;
}

Hi Guys I’ve been using Selfy for a long time, and I still love it. I’ve been able to make it mine by adding plugins, deeply amending CSS … it’s just great.

Still, I have one unsolved question. I currently have about 7k photos on my wp, and you can imagine, numerous galeries and gallery posts. My point is that it’s quite difficult to identify each gallery compared to another given the number. I was therefor wondering how could I display the gallery post title over or below the gallery picture displayed in a gallery page. For now we can see a magnifying glass over the picture, but would be great to have more info displayed. Any help would be most welcome. many thx

Hi, I’m afraid we don’t have that option in our theme. You will need to reprogramme the theme to achieve this. Perhaps you could consider looking for a gallery plugin that offers this functionality :)

Hi,

I have problem with my ‘Show All’ function. If the ‘Show All’ button is clicked, all thumbnails are disappearing. Do I have to re-install the theme? If I do, how do I do it and will it replace/overwrite all my current settings?

Thank you

Hi, this issue was fixed in an update. If the version you have has the Envato WordPress Toolkit bundled you can use this plugin to 1-click update. If you have an earlier version where the Toolkit is not included you will need to update manually by deleting the old theme and then installing the new one. Your settings (and content) should be intact after the update – but to make sure you can use the Import/export settings function in General Settigns.

Hi,

Thank you so much for the help! Everything works just fine now!

Hi, I am having a few issues with the sizing of thumbs in the gallery (full width). For some reason if the featured image is large then they all reduce to a certain size but if the featured image is not so large then the gallery thumb does not retain the exact height measurements.

I have figured out a hack fro this by making sure smaller images have a ratio of 332:194 but this compromises the images sometimes as I may want them at a different ratio.

Any ideas?

Hi, WordPress cannot correctly crop images that are smaller than the size it tries to crop into. The gallery tries to crop images to a size of 676×394 pixels so you must use images that are larger than this or your image will not be cropped correctly :) If you need to use smaller images you will have to change the crop sizes which can be done in the selfy/functions.php around line 164 – remember to regenerate your thumnails after you change the sizes (download and run a plugin such as regenerate thumbnails.)

HI Again,

Can you help with this?

We want to add a page features, thus a question. If you can share the code to do this that would be awesome. I’m happy to pay or donate.

I’ve created new pages using the Default Template (non Blog Pages). I’d like to include a few additional features in it, which I see in the Category Pages. Thus would mean I need to add a new Template and use a mix of Default Template and Category Page.

Example Category Pages
http://themecanon.net/themes/selfy-default/category/gallery-2/
http://themecanon.net/themes/selfy-default/category/uncategorized/
http://themecanon.net/themes/selfy-default/category/gallery/

New Page template is based on the current Default Template, but it would include the ability to:
- Add blog posts
- – When adding the blog posts, if possible, add blogs by category or sub category
- show them as seen in the Example Category Pages, the way they are stacked
  • That is the minimum need.

    Not coding WP myself, I am guessing it might be possible to start with a category template and achieve something similar?

    What do you think?

Hi, I’m afraid we do not assist with customizations of this nature :)

Hi

Another Question

Can you point me to the code needed to use the Home Page http://themecanon.net/themes/selfy-default/ Hero Look (i.e. Above the fold Image, and Text with or without Slider etc) so to have a Another New Template Page?

So for example this AboutMe Page http://themecanon.net/themes/selfy-default/about-me/ would have have the similar look above the fold to the Home Page.

What do you think?

Hi, I’m afraid that a customization like this is beyond the scope of our support service :)

(Please keep follow up comments to the same thread that you have already started, thanks) :)

Hi, the homepage code is located in selfy/index.php and the hero units are located in the folder selfy/inc/templates :)
