Welcome. Although the list of Shortcodes is impressive, yet Tabs and Toggles/Accordions are distinctly missing.

Any reason for not including? Plans to include later?

Thanks

ThemeCanon

Hey ThemeSwitcher,

We have just ported the original HTML template to Wordpress. I am considering including them in an update.

ThemeSwitcher

Thanks. Bookmarked for a project.

Just noticed that the menu in vertical view on the iPad expands and doesn’t disappear. Also, the slideshow slides move under the header in horizontal view. Better check that out ;)

Love it, probably gonna purchase this one soon! :)

ThemeCanon

Hi – thanks a lot! Yes the masthead image will always try to fill out the entire viewport and on smaller viewports this means that the logo and menu is on top of the slider which is faded out a bit and acts more as a backdrop image :) I’m not able to reproduce the menu issue on my testing devices – so when you open the menu and click a menu item it does not close and go to the new page? On my devices (iPhone/iPad) the menu seems to work correctly and you can close it again by pressing the Menu bar. :)

Default-user

About the masthead, understood!

For the menu in vertical mode on the iPad, I tested on a retina ipad, newest model. I just tested it and found that the problem only existed with some styles. However, as I was checking now as I type which styles were having this problem, the problem appeared to be solved suddenly. Might it be that you changed something just now? :)

Yes, the problem was that it didn’t close. Pressing the button reopened it again all the time. The links worked though.

So, for as far as I can see now, it’s all perfect now.

Small question: the icons on the frontpage, do they come with the theme, together with a selection of other icons?

One request, that would help me – and I suspect many others – a great deal: Custom CSS and Google analytics.

Do you think you could add that?

ThemeCanon

Hi! Very glad you decided to purchase the theme! :)

If you go to Selfy Settings > General > Footer – you can insert your Google Analytics code here :)

There are several ways you can edit the css – if you don’t want to open up the style.css file and edit the css there you can go to Appearance > Editor and from there you are able to change the css directly from the back-end. Also more and more people are using Child themes to alter the original css – the great thing about this method is that your custom css changes will remain even after you/we update the theme. You can read more here:

If you had something else in mind we would love to hear the details as we are always looking for ways to improve our theme :)

Hi. Thanks for the WP site. I have a quick question. I have designed a site based on the old Selfy site but was waiting for the WP site to go live. The Homepage layout is now different. Is it quite straight forward to re-cerate the homepage with the 3 columns under main header image i.e. About me. | What I do. | Get in touch?

Thanks

ThemeCanon

Hey jbarrs101,

Too easy, I have an included option of the original home page for cases just like yours: Look at the preview site under skins / original:

Great theme!

I’d like to use the blog as the homepage and your homepage layout as my about page. Possible?

ThemeCanon

Sure – that’s easy! Just go to Settings > Reading > Front page displays > Static page > Select your blog page. :)

danielburns

Can I use the home page layout as another page?

ThemeCanon

The homepage layout is only accessible if you use it as your homepage – sorry missed that part of the question.

danielburns

Darn. That About page is much better than your actual About page.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. Good luck with sales! :)

danielburns

It looks like I could reconstruct that home page layout, yeah? Looking at the styles page, it looks like all the homepage elements are there except the icons/stats section. Can I add the icons/stats to a page via shortcode?

Can I put that giant slider on a page?

ThemeCanon

Hi Daniel, Sorry the giant slider and stats are not a shortcodes. They are part and parcel of the Home page design. Whilst the stats could be manually implemented on another page without to much trouble, there is a deal of work to get the giant slider onto another page.

Does the theme use featured images? And how about with image-only-posts in the blog-full-width-view: does they use the full width like the gallery post type?

ThemeCanon

Hi, yes this theme uses featured images! The blog usually displays a post’s featured image – but you can also choose to replace this image with an embeddable code (Vimeo video, Youtube video, Soudcloud widget etc.) then this embeddable media will be displayed instead of the featured image if you choose. I’m not exactly sure what you mean by the full width question – could you try and explain in more detail? :)

rappel

In your demo I see full width gallery, soundcloud and full width video posts, but the standard post shows image and text in two columns. When I have a post with no text, only a featured image – is this one also shown in full width? Or is this also shown with the post-title in two columns?

It would be nice, if you can add an image only post to your theme demo.

Thanks and regard,

r.

ThemeCanon

When you create your post you can select a post format (standard, quote, gallery, video, audio) and this determines how you post will appear on the blog. If you have a post with no content but with a featured image you can select the Gallery post type. This way your post will appear on the blog with a full width featured image. If attach more images to your post you will get a full width slider on the blog – but if you only have a featured image only this image will appear :)

I couldn’t find any info on the slider. What are the details on the slider you include?

ThemeCanon

We use Superslides which is a full screen, responsive slider :)

Default-user

Awesome. Thanks. Any chance of seeing the slider in action in the demo without manually scrolling images? Also, is there an option for background images?

ThemeCanon

The slider does auto play, we have just set a really long interval, however this is up-datable in the scripts. Also no option for background images.

Hey Wonderist, Sorry for the delay I have been away for a few days, and my partner does not handle styling support issues, so thanks for your patience.

1. To update the slide intervals, edit js/scripts.js, look for // Superslides.js (update slide speed & delay)

2. The menu colours are broken into two parts, the background colour and the text colour. The Menu text colour is updated with the “Headings color” selector in Selfy settings/ appearance. The background colour can either be for active or hover states, these are updated with the “Button background color” selector and “Button hover background color” selector in the same appearance settings.

Thanks so much for the reply. It all worked. It would be great to have the menu color option different from the headings tags as now my headings don’t show up against a white background. The only other thing is having seo options for the homepage. Because the homepage isn’t built like a normal page, there are no plugins for seo that will work with it.

Thanks Wonderist, we are trying to keep customisation of styles simple for users by nesting elements that use the same colours/styles. There is obviously loads more elements that we could potentially provide individual style options for, but thought best to draw the line where we did.

You can manually override the colours of the menu by adding new styles to the bottom of the styles.css file. A basic example below, will allow different background colours to the menu from that of normal buttons.

.nav li.current-menu-item a:hover, .nav-parent.hover a, #nav ul.sub-menu, #nav ul.sub-menu a, .nav-parent.hover a, nav a:hover{
    background-color: #ff6666!important;
}
#nav li.current-menu-parent a, #nav li.current-menu-item a{
    background-color: #ccc;
}
#nav li ul.sub-menu li a{
    background-color: transparent!important;
}

As you are overiding the native styles, it is important to keep the !important suffix on your new styles.

How would I create a gallery page using the theme that simply displays photos uploaded to the WP Media manager? In other words, I don’t necessarily want to add a WP Post for images to add to a gallery (a head shot gallery for an actor website). I’d like to use posts for news updates, etc. instead.

Thanks!

ThemeCanon

Hi, you do have to create a post to make it appear on the Selfy gallery pages. If you have already uploaded your image to the Media Library you can easily insert it as a featured image. Then when creating your gallery you simply select what post categories you want to include in your gallery. You can also choose whether clicking the image will open it up in a lightbox or link to your post. And finally you have the option to hide your post from the blog if you don’t want it to show up there.

It is not possible to add images as isolated images from the Media Library and directly to the Selfy gallery. However if enough people request this feature we might think about it for a future update :)

However we believe that basing our galleries around the wordpress post system is the more versatile approach. A lot of people will use the galleries as portfolios to show off projects or work and in this way have the option to link each image through to a post containing detailed information. For those who merely want a gallery with images you can simply choose to open images in a lightbox and hide gallery posts from the blog :)

OK, thanks for the info. I suppose I’ll just create hidden posts for now such that every headshot doesn’t end up as a “news” item as you suggested. The isolated/static gallery feature would certainly get my vote, but I understand your reasoning as well. Actaully, the WP post system makes a lot of sense for the actor’s “production photos” section. Great suggestion.

Hi… Really cool site… Can the text in the slider be adjusted to show properly on iPhone? Right now it is cut off on home page.

ThemeCanon

Hi, The masthead will always try to fill out the entire viewport, anything outside the viewport is hidden. We will address this text issue in the next update. thanks

I believe I may have found a minor issue with the theme.

Embedded blog post hyperlinks are not active in the loop, specifically in the template “Blog Full Width”. When you proceed to the individual posts’ pages, however, links do function as expected.

I haven’t tried to see if the issue is still present with other blog page template styles.

Feel free to take a look at the first post, ‘abstract nude’, at http://www.cameronperry.info/wphome/?page_id=22 to see what I mean.

ThemeCanon

Hey Elliot, just responded via email. thanks

ThemeCanon

Hi Elliot,

To elaborate on the hyperlink issue in excerpt, this is not a bug.

Automatically generated excerpts will cut out any html. Reason for this is that if you have a tag that starts within the excerpt but ends somewhere in the content that is not included in the automatic excerpt you will only get starting tags in excerpt and this will break your site. There should be no restrictions on manual excerpts though, where users are responsible themselves for the content.

thanks

Putting the link in the manual excerpt did the trick. Thanks!

Hi, sounds like your serverhost is running an older version of PHP, you should contact the people responsible and ask them to upgrade to at least version 5.3.0 (current stable release is version 5.5) :)

Hi, Just purchased the theme. Very nice BTW.

I am trying to create a contact form. I have downloaded the relevant plugin as suggested. All seems well until I try and add a new filed to the form e.g. a ‘tel’ field. It appears but does not have the Selfy styling. How do I go about giving it the right styling as per your example contact form?

Thanks

ThemeCanon

Hi Jbarrs, Sorry I missed this, will fix in the next update.

For the meanwhile if you want to fix yourself, you will need to add “input[type=tel]” to the styles.css style sheet. Around line 953, add it with the other input[type=] classes.
