Is there a way to avoid a long serie of page number on the footer? I would prefer the arrows with “older posts” “newer posts”. what will it happen when 150 pages will be there? thank you!!

elemis

Hi,

All the page numbers won’t show actually. After 3 pages, next, previous, last and first buttons are being added and not all the pages in between will show: http://cl.ly/2f3p2x3r0V2b3m280d0l

Hi, I purchased this theme couple of weeks back and I really love it.

But I need one help. Besides the current fonts provided through the themes, I would like to add my own favorite fonts. Few of them are Google Web Fonts. I would really like to have some of these custom fonts.

Can you please help and let me know how can I add the custom fonts?

Thanks.

Hi,

Trying to figure out how to change font-size of nav menu. Can’t find CSS to target and it’s nowhere in theme options.

Hi, I tried to live preview this theme after purchase within my WP dashboard and am getting the following error message:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare vimeo_shortcode() (previously declared in /home/content/37/7203437/html/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortcodes/vimeo.php:18) in /home/content/37/7203437/html/wp-content/themes/serendipity/functions/shortcodes.php on line 571

I am fairly n00b-ular with these things … any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

Thanks so much in advance! Can’t wait to use the theme! :)

Hi,

It seems the theme shortcode for vimeo conflicts with Jetpack Vimeo shortcode. If you can give us permission to your wordpress admin we can edit the theme shortcode for Vimeo. You can send the credentials to us via the contact form on our profile page.

Hi,

I can’t get videos to show up properly. I think this is partly because I don’t know what the video embed code is. I’ve tried the short code and the full youtube URL , and neither seems to be working.

Help! Thanks.

elemis

Hi,

Please open your YouTube video and first click on the “Share” button below it and then the “Embed” button. You will need to copy the embed code (http://cl.ly/2N190O3D103y1G1h3o1J) and paste it into the “Video Embed Code” field in the post editor.

Hy Is there a way to enable a category menu at the top of the page? Or for example a menu floating left or right from the content area which could be enabled or disabled?

Thanks

elemis

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in Serendipity. It is possible to add categories as menu items. But we couldn’t understand your second question. Can you please provide an example?

elemis

Hi,

Such an option is not available in the theme. Since it is a specific feature it can only be added by CSS and PHP modification of theme or maybe you can find a plugin for it.

In italian we have accents on capital letters too. but If I write a title in wordpress, the theme converts everything in capital letters, but I miss accents and I have words “truncated”, How can I solve? thank you very much!

elemis

Hi,

Market Deco font seems not to support accents. Can you please try a different font?

Hi, I was considering purchasing this, but I was wondering if you have any plans to update this to WordPress 3.4….or is it fully compatible as it is? I noticed that a couple of your other themes were valid for 3.4….

Thanks

elemis

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in Serendipity. It is compatible with Wordpress 3.4.

I just recently purchased this theme and I am loving it so far! But, is there a way to limit the number of thumbnails that show up on a gallery page? ie, I have 50 images to use for the “wedding gallery”, and would rather have 1o or 15 thumbnails show up on a page and would have a next page and so on link. Thanks!!

elemis

Hi,

Thank you for purchasing Serendipity. Unfortunately it is not possible to paginate the gallery. In a gallery page every attached image will be displayed. Maybe you can create several gallery pages instead of one and give links for each manually.

Thanks for your response. That’s okay—I’ll live with all thumbnails showing up one page. But now I’m stuck on two other things: 1. How do I work around the column shortcodes? I want to create a post with 2 rows with 4 columns each? 2. How do I remove the small text/links that show up under the main menu? (ie. Home / Portfolio / Weddings)

elemis

Hi,

1. You can create 2 rows with 4 columns for each by copying and duplicating the 4 columns shortcode in the “Columns” page of dummy content. If you don’t have dummy content you can use shortcode generator for columns. Please don’t forget to insert [clear] shortcode after each row.

2. You can remove the breadcrumbs with the following CSS . Please paste it into the “Custom CSS ” field in the theme options panel:

#crumbs {
    display:none;
}

I love this theme. Before I buy it, I have a quick question that’s probably extremely silly, but here goes. Is it easy to add photos to the body of each post? This is the blog that I’m updating: www.thesevanblog.com. I just want to make sure that I can still have the posts look similar to what they look like there. (Not the homepage.)

elemis

Hi,

You can insert images into the posts with “add media” button on the post editor.

Hi,

Instead of one of the background skins that came with the theme, I’d just like to have a white background. What changes do I need to put in the code?

Thanks!

elemis

Hi,

You can make the background solid white with the following CSS (you can paste it into the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel):

body { 
    background: #ffffff; 
}

Love the theme. Going to start my customizations on it. I was wondering how I can insert responsive video to a page.. not just the post.

I’m running a photo blog that has 20-40 image per post. Is there a way to have all of them full width? Or can I only run 1 image as a feature image and that’s the one that will show up at full width? I don’t want to use the gallery option either.

Thanks.

elemis

Hi,

You can insert an image without margins by wrapping the image code with ”.full-size” class:

<div class="full-size"><img src="image.jpg" /></div>

And insert a video without margins by adding additional ”.media” class:

<div class="full-size media">VIDEO EMBED CODE</div>

If you would like to make the video only responsive not full width, then you don’t need the ”.full-size” class, just .media>

<div class="media">VIDEO EMBED CODE</div>

Perfect. Thanks so much for the super fast reply. I’ll give that a shot. Thanks again!

another quick question. Is it easy to run a child theme? I’d like to customize some things, but would also like the capability to update the theme whenever you update it. Thanks,

elemis

Hi,

We haven’t tested running a child theme. You will need to test it yourself.

Hi I recently purchased the theme and love it however there is no way to insert an excerpt – whether using the ‘insert more tag’ or the Excerpt widget. Can you please advise on what to do in order to use this feature?

elemis

Hi,

Please make sure you use the “more quicktag” to add more link to your posts. If you select “your latest posts” as the “front page displays” in Settings – Reading, the more quicktag will work. But if you would like to use a static page as the frontpage, then please give us permission to your wordpress admin so we can make it possible to show only the excerpts in blog page template too. You can send the credentials to us via the contact form on our profile page.
