2 things:

1- is there an easy way to create an extra color scheme ? I’ve edited the blue.css but haven’t seen any changes.

2 – is there a select option input style to the form?

elemis

Hi,

1. Editing the blue.css file should work. If you still cannot see the changes please give us permission to your wordpress admin so we can take a closer look. You can send the credentials to us via the contact form on our profile page.

2. Select option is not available in the contact form.

ok, tks!

Hi

I am really struggling with the gallery. When i upload the images and insert the gallery shortcode: [photo_gallery] It doesn’t seem to add the (+) rollover rollover graphic, nor does the image click open within the window. The thumbnail opens up the image on a blank white page.

Can you help me? Here is a screenshot of how the page previews:

I have read through your notes and help.html but i cannot find any other information.

Many thanks

One more question and then i’ll pay you for more consults – i promise :) I want to delete the Navigation (see Picture: http://wolke.felixnelson.de/image/2v3f301e190A), because we just have a few Sites and don’t need this option. Can you tell me the file were i can erase the code or can you tell what to exclude in css?

Thank you a lot. I appreciate it very much!

elemis

1. Please go to functions/shortcodes.php and delete

title="'.$image->post_title.'"

on line 620 to remove the title that appears when hovered on images.

2. You can hide the breadcrumbs with the following CSS code, please paste it into the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel:

#crumbs {
display:none;
}

Good day,

Just got the theme and it’s beautiful but I have one question if you don’t mind. I am interested in installing an SEO plugin for the theme.

I tried installing smart SEO but the title gets screwed up showing post title on the homepage and I also tried a free SEO plugin named SEO Wordpress by Yoast but it also bugs out and duplicates the title on the homepage. Are there any tested seo plugins (good ones) that would work properly with this theme. I understand it’s new and requires testing.

Any help would be appreciated!

elemis

Hi,

If you send us an email via the contact form on our profile page we can send you the updated header.php file which fixes the issue with the title that happens while using SEO Wordpress by Yoast.

Thank you for your reply. I managed to google a bit and find the solution. It was pretty simple. If I have any other questions, I’ll be sure to use the contact form :)

Hey Elemis, I have another question if you don’t mind. When attaching video posts, I noticed the embed code has to have a width and a height. I noticed a little glitch or what appears to be normal but can be fixed probably. When the theme loads up, the video is sized according to the embed code then quickly proceeds to be resized to the post size which is 1040px width. I tried removing the width and height from the embed code but it still loads up as a very small video then blows up when the theme is loaded on the online.

Any fix for this in the embed code?

Thanks!

elemis

Hi,

It seems that it takes some time for the video script to load on your website. Because the width entered is not important. The video should appear fullwidth directly when entered the page. Have you tried making the width 1040 in the embed code?

Hi, where do I edit the css for h5.widget-title?

(Found it, the h5.widget-title is edited in the Theme options > Footer heading… Not very logical, especially after adding a sidebar with the same widgets ;) )

elemis

Hi,

You can edit it using the custom css in the styling tab of the theme options.

Good morning,

I have an issue with the German translation of this theme. Some parts remain English. Adding a de_DE .po file to the language folder does not work.

There alredy seems to be a German file in includes/meta-box/lang. This file has been detected by the Codestyling Localisation plugin. Changing the file with the plugin also has no effect.

Any idea?

Best regards, Tobias

elemis

Hi,

We are not sure why the plugin cannot find the language file, textdomain and language file path are correct. We just tested and .po file works properly as well. We recommend you follow the instructions in the help documentation to translate the file instead of using a plugin. If you only will need to change search and next and prev buttons, you can do it manually from the php files as well.

We tried everything to able to show unformatted shortcode text in the excerpt but unfortunately none of them worked. What we can recommend is using HTML instead of shortcode for dropcaps. So instead of

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]

you will need to use

<span class="dropcap">W</span>

in your posts.

OK, that’s better. Is there any way to shorten the_content?

elemis

You can continue to use

<?php echo cutMeAgain(the_content()); ?>

which already shortens the_content.

Hi,

I’m trying to make my background and content area the same color (#1a1a1a). I used #wrapper { background-color:#1a1a1a; }

to change the content area from the default white. There is still a small white border around the content area. How can I change that to match the same color (##1a1a1a)?

My site is at www.rbcrosby.com/blog

Thanks in advance!

elemis

Hi,

The #wrapper includes a border as well, but you seem to have removed it already.

Hi, just bought this template, it’s great. I had a blog running with text and photo’s and the Clear-Line theme. Now I installed Serendipity over it. The images used to appear with a lightbox-plugin. My knowlegdge is not that good, but now the images appear twice in every post. Is there anyway to get rid of the image in the message and let a thumbnail link to a popup of the whole image like in lightbox? I deactivated lightbox, but that did not work. Have you got some tips for me? My blog is on: www.smarts.nl/wordpress

Thanks in advance! Marty

Hi,

We don’t recommend using the gallery format for single images because it is not possible to center images in the gallery format.

We can help you hide the featured images (little thumbnails) on top of the posts. So only the images you insert into the text will be visible. Can you please give us permission to your wordpress admin? You can send the credentials to us via the contact form on our profile page.

To add a lightbox you need to edit the links of your image which look like

<a href=""><img class="" /></a>

like this:

<a href="" class="view"><img class="" /></a>

I already found out i have to adjust all my messages with pictures in it, for them to appear in a sort of lightbox-idea by using the gallery option. Does that mean I have to adjust it for every message I ever created? If so, that’s a whole lot of work for about 1600+ messages. Is there any other way? :-(

What I still cannot figure out is how to center a single image in a message, it lines out to the left now. Would love to get some tips. Thanks again!

Hello there, Before I decide whether to buy this, how usable is it for a complete HTML novice to use? Thanks Sarah

elemis

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in Serendipity. Since it is a Wordpress theme you will only need Wordpress knowledge. You can watch the screencasts here to have an idea on how the theme can be setup: http://vimeo.com/album/1957222

Hello, I am very interested in purchasing this template. I was wondering, is it possible to remove or edit the line through the top (where it says blog, gallery shortcodes, etc) and put in your own header? Thank you!

elemis

Hi,

You can edit the contents of the menu or remove it via CSS (we can help you on this). But we couldn’t understand your last question. Can you please explain?

and put in your own header?
Default-user

I apologize, I meant is it possible to add a custom header to this template?

elemis

Hi,

Unfortunately the theme doesn’t have a “custom header” option.

Hey elemis,

1) i’ve a question concerning the thumbnails from the photo gallery: is it possible to change the image section of a thumbnail? and 2) is there another possibility to insert a new picture to an existing gallery without uploading the image again (it’s already uploaded in the mediathek)

thank you, sara

elemis

Hi,

1. Sorry but we couldn’t understand what you mean by changing the image section?

2. Since the gallery displays the images attached to the post, you will need to upload them in the post even though they are already in the library.

ok sorry…for example: when i upload a picture in vertical format with a person on it, the thumbnail crop off the head of the person…how can i change this?

and another second question: when i insert a gallery (with the shortcut) on a page where already a picture is displayed (like on your About Example Site) this picture is also in the gallery…can i remove it from the gallery?

thank you, sara

elemis

Hi,

If you can send us an email we can send you the updated shortcodes.php file to change the crop position to top.

Unfortunately if you have a gallery on the same page it will display all attached images on that page. To include a different page you can upload the image from “Media-Add New” in wp-admin and copy its url and insert it in the page using “Add Image – From URL ” in the post editor.

Hi, I like your theme, using it now for a few weeks and making little changes. When I do a Google Page Speed it get’s a low score. I have a few questions regarding this.

On the single blogpost page there are related posts. These show small versions of the featured photo’s, but these are the full photo’s resized by CSS /HTML. Can you just use a smaller version.

I almost only post images, so I use the image post type with featured photo to use the full 1040px width. And I upload my photo’s with a width of 1040px. But Google says these photos are scaled to 944×531.

elemis

Hi,

To be able to show different post formats in the related section we have to pull the different format files and since they include full-sized images, it is not possible to use smaller versions.

The theme doesn’t include any code to scale images to the width of 944px. So we are not sure why the test says they are scaled.

We just checked the demo page, it gets 85% score and it is not a low score.

evannuil Purchased

Did you also run the test on a blogpostpage ? Because then I get a low score because of the scaled images. In which file can I remove the displaying of the related images ? I want to only show the titles.

elemis

Yes we ran the test on single post as well, it is 84%. You can remove the images using the following code. Please paste it into the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel:

.related-list li .full-size, .related-list li .normal-size,
.related-container .format-gallery .gallery-thumbnail {
display:none;
}

Hi there, I have just purchased this theme and tried to upload it as my wp theme, but got the following message:

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Please can you advsie what to do?

Thanks Sarah

Hi,

Please make sure you unzip the theme package and install serendipity.zip that is included in the theme folder of the package.

Hi, Before i purchase this item, i want to ask something.

I think I’m gonna write in other language(Korean). Is it possible to give korean fonts to this theme?

I have the .ttf files and webfonts both. (http://api.mobilis.co.kr/webfonts/css/?fontface=NanumMyeongjoWeb) Is it hard to apply to this theme?

Sorry about my bad english. thank you.

elemis

Hi,

The link you provided seems not to work, but since you have the fonts, please contact us if you purchase the item and we will help you on applying your fonts into the theme.

Hi,

I am very new to this sort of thing. I am trying to change the Stylesheet, to make the menu bar at the top much fatter (about 100px instead of 42px). Basically I can´t figure out how to do it. I can influence certain parts of it but can´t get it right.

Also, I´d like to remove the little info bar (link | September 4, 2012 | Uncategorized) from above each post, and the search bar from the top right of the page.

And finally if possible, to put the logo in the center of the page at the top instead of left.

Please let me know if you can help with these things.

On another note, and I´m sure this is much more difficult to do, but is it possible to have the media in Black & White, but turn to color when the curser is hovering over it, for both video and photos? I am willing to pay for some advanced help.

Regards, Tom

elemis

Hi,

Since the menu has a background image for stitches, first of all you need to edit the menu-bg.png that is inside the images folder of the theme and change its height using an image editor. Then you can change the height of the menu and push the list items by editing the values in the code below. Paste it into the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel and edit the values:

#access .menu ul {
    height: 42px;
}

#access .menu ul li {
    padding-top: 8px;
}

You can hide the post details using the code below. (You will also need to apply some margin below the post titles in this case, we also added the code for it):

.entry-meta {
    display:none
}

.entry-title {
    margin-bottom: 25px;
}

You can use the code below to center the logo:

#branding #site-title {
    margin-bottom: 15px;
    text-align: center;
}

#branding #site-title img {
    display: inline;
}

And to hide the searchbar on top right, use the code below:

.social .widget_search {
    display:none;
}

Unfortunately we won’t be able to help you with your last request about having media in black & white but turn to color when hovering. This requires an advanced customization. You can find a freelancer on http://freelanceswitch.com/ for this.

Thank you very much!!! Incredible helpful!!! Amazing theme and even better support!

Regards, Tom!

elemis

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate it.

I love having images span the full width with no white on the sides so I created a class “full” that changes maxwidth and margins.

However, on iphones and tablets, these images no longer are full width as the featured image is. Is there anyway I can fix this without having to put the images in a full width div?

Here’s a sample post:

Thank you!

Last thing - the “gallery” post type is not working. I upload multiple pictures attached to the post and the gallery format does not display - none of the images show up.

Default-user

^^ Not sure why it’s putting a line through my text.

elemis

Hi,

You need to add [photo_gallery] shortcode to show the attached images in a gallery post.
