Good afternoon, I wonder if the shortcode [photo_gallery] is customizable. Can I choose how many photos show? Can I share the pictures in 2 galleries inside the post?

Sorry for bad english, I’m brazilian. ;)

elemis

Hi,

[photo_gallery] shortcode is set to display all the attached images and unfortunately it is not possible to split it into 2 galleries inside the same post. The number of pictures depends on how many images you attach to the post.

Hi I’ve purchased the theme but for some reason when using body { background: #ffffff; } in the custom CSS field the theme’s background is not turning white, instead it is turning a soft grey. Please help! I just want to achieve a plain white background.

Hi! I recently bought this theme and I love it. Worth every penny!

I have a few questions that i wonder if you can assist with?

1. Since the wordpress default comment system sucks imo, I’ve installed the Disqus plugin which works very good. However, on the blog page where you see all the posts, it says for example “3 Comments and 0 Reactions” under the post title. Although, when opening the actual post – it says “6 Comments”. So it seems like the WordPress default comment count is applied on the post page for some reason. I’ve fiddled with this for hours – but I’m giving up!

2. On my “Travelmap” page I’ve added a plugin that just shows a map with routes, is it possible to extend this with to 1040 so it looks as neat as a normal Map code does?

3. Lastly, I’ve been trying to add a custom field so that when I make a post, I can add which City/Country Im located at. Idea is that this should show under the post title, for example: “May 21, 2012 | Bangkok, Thailand | Photography | 3 Comments and 0 Reactions”

Thanks again for this awesome theme <3

This is great so far, almost exactly what I was looking for. I have a few questions though:

1) Is there a user guide for this? I can’t figure out how to get a gallery in either the example as gallery format (post) or gallery page – with the lightbox viewer, etc

2) Also, a lot of my blog titles disappear on page two?

3) For some reason, the Flickr gallery plugin doesn’t work on this – I’d really like to store my images on flickr – but link them here.

4) I’ve also noticed that this theme is slower than a lot of the others I’ve been testing. Is that this case – does it just take longer to load than others?

5) Oh the mobile version – it only supports 3 menu items, the other two appear in white under the bar.

6) I also would like to get rid of the title at the top that says Home/About or Home/Gallery etc.

Hi,

Thank you for using our theme.

1. Yes, you can find the help documentation in the theme package (inside the help folder).

2.3.4.5. If you can give us permission to your wordpress admin we can take a closer look on monday morning. You can send the credentials to us via the contact form on our profile page. http://themeforest.net/user/elemis

6. 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;
}

Thanks! I can’t seem to reply to your post – number 6 worked easily. I have a rather dumb question – how do I actually view the help files? I couldn’t use the uploader with word press – so I transferred things via FTP – I’m not sure if that makes a difference. When I look at the files in the help section – I don’t see anything that’s viewable.

I would love to go through the help files and see if I can figure a few things out myself – and then I will send my remaining questions over your way on Monday.

On number 3 – I got the flickr gallery to work on a post (great news!) – and it displays on a page, it just doesn’t open the viewer – so I’m guessing the fix is pretty simple.

Overall – HUGE thanks. I’ve been looking for something that looks good with photos and writing for quite a while!

elemis

You need to open the “help.html” file with your browser to view the documentation.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you need anything from us, we’d be happy to help.

I will email you separately on the issues above tomorrow if they don’t resolve themselves. So far though – it’s looking really good! Very pleased…

I have several questions on photos

1) Is the only way to get a photo to go full screen – is to ‘feature’ image it? When I uploaded just large ones (greater than 1100px wide) it didn’t always work. Is there something else I’m missing – like the format selection (ie: post type)?

2) Is there a way to center the gallery when it has less than five photos (ie: three or four)? I tried using the ‘center’ feature on visual posting and it didn’t work.

3) Is there only one ‘size’ for the thumbnails on the gallery?

4) Do you know if it’s possible to use your gallery format but link to flickr photos (vs. storing them on my server/wordpress). I love your viewer – but I’m trying to get away from multiple storage places. Right now – I’m using a plugin (Awesome something) that feeds directly from Flickr. I’m guessing that might not be possible to merge the two – but it would be great! Maybe I need a separate plugin for storage or something.

elemis

Hi,

1. Images will appear fullscreen if they are featured images. To make the additional, inserted images fullscreen, you need to wrap them with “full-size” div:

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

2. It is not possible to center the gallery.

3. There is only one size for gallery thumbnails.

4. Unfortunately it is not possible to merge the gallery and Flickr.

Hello -

Finally got back to this – I figured out the problem with the blog post titles disappearing, for some reason – certain ‘posts’ were set to no ‘type’ – so once I switched them to ‘standard’ it worked ok. Some additional – hopefully simple questions

1). When I post a vertical photo with a short text – I actually have to insert manual ‘spaces’ to make sure it doesn’t cause the one below to go out of line. Is there a fix for that?

2.) How can I change the font and size of the ‘intro to the blog’ – it’s really quite large and I’d like it to be a lot smaller

3.) I lost the tagline – or maybe it wasn’t ever there? Is there a way to display it – I’d like to have that option.

4). Is there anything to improve the speed? I can’t tell what might be my server vs. the template?

elemis

Hi,

1. Can you please show an example post for this?

2. The default size for intro is 20px. You can paste the following code into the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel and change the size per your needs:

.intro {
    font-size: 20px;
}

3. Option for displaying tagline is not available.

4. The speed is related to content (image sizes), internet speed and server.

Hi,

thanks for the great theme. Works really pretty well. I just have some questions: – is there a chance that the photo_gallery shows the picture in the order I choose in my posts? – my thumbnails are not showing up (and yes, I chmod 777 to img_resize in folder functions) What else can I do? – what should be the image size settings in general?

Thanks in advance!

Best wishes Stefan

elemis

Hi,

You can change the order by editing the order of images in “add media” and then clicking on the “save all changes” button in the dialog box.

Can you please provide your gallery page link so we can take a closer look on what error do the thumbnails generate?

The thumbnails are cropped as 400×300px.

Can I choose wich image will be seen at gallery? i mean, i dont want to show at gallery the featured image, can i choose that?

elemis

Hi,

All images that are attached to the post will be displayed in the gallery. Unfortunately there is no option to choose the images other than not uploading the ones you don’t want to display.

Would it be possible to have a gallery direct the reader to other posts when the user clicks a thumbnail? I’d like to use it as a visual post archive if possible.

elemis

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in Serendipity. This is not available as default but the gallery can be altered to do so by making some modifications. So the images won’t direct the user to the fullsize version but to the link added to the image.

Hi!

I’m having trouble with hiding the crumbs using the code you have mentioned earlier.

crumbs { display:none; }

It seems to work on the the blog post page but not the other pages,

I had everything working perfectly with the code you gave me a couple of months ago but I lost the whole blog and have been restoring it, this is the only thing I can’t get to work,

Thank you very much, Tom

Sorry, I tried again and the code is fine, the bread crumbs are dead and gone.

I have one last question regarding embedded videos on ‘pages’. Is it possible get them to go right up to the edge of the page like they do in the ‘posts’ on the main page?

I have added some code to make them responsive but if they could be the same as the main posts page it would be amazing!

Thank you,

Tom!

elemis

Hi,

Please wrap your video embed code with

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

Gorgeous, theme, thank you! Must’ve tried at least 30 over the past few weeks and this one beats them all. Three questions: 1. How can I centralize my header image? (www.luizotaviobarros.com) 2. On the home page, there’s a dotted line between posts. Can I make it s l i g h t l y more prominent? 3. I’m getting the impression – though I could be wrong – that this theme loads a little more slowly than others I’ve tried. Could I be doing something wrong? Thanks again. Splendid job.

elemis

1. Please paste the following code into the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel:

#site-title {
text-align:center;
}

2. You can download a more prominent looking line from here: http://f.cl.ly/items/2n2A1Y441H0J0I0W442x/line.png (Save as and upload it into the style/images folder of the theme.)

3. We haven’t noticed any slowness, your website loads immediately on our end.

Hi I’ve purchase this great theme and i have a problem with accentuation title on widget footer for example “MTA”, “Catgories”

Hello Elemis, i have two questions,

1.- Can i change de theme’s width?

2.- Where can i change the size of the crumb’s text?

thank you very much

elemis

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in Serendipity.

1. You can change the width by editing couple of settings by applying custom css. 2. You can change the crumbs font size through the theme options panel. But it also will change the size of similar elements. To be able to change only the crumbs font size, again you can apply a custom css.

How can I center title header of each post on my homepage? http://onephotoaday.karentandoc.com/ i.e. DAY 5, DAY 4, DAY 3, DAY 2, DAY 1. As you can see, only DAY 5 is centered, but the rest are off to the right. It looks like only the recent post is centered while the rest are not. Please help! Thank you much!

elemis

Hi,

This is because of the Facebook Like script which is floated left and the float needs to be cleared after the script. Is there a chance you edit the plugin and add the code that you see here http://cl.ly/text/2Q2D1z2z3O3Q after? The plugin may have a setting for this as well. Let us know if you can’t apply this.

Thank you!!! I found the setting for the plugin and you were right, the plugin was set up to float left. I changed it and header for each post shows up centered now.

Images not going “edge to edge”

http://shawnchittle.com/wordpress/2013/01/lovely-winter-day-on-the-lower-east-side/

How can I fix? Thanks!

elemis

Hi,

Images will appear edge to edge if they are featured images. To make the additional, inserted images edge to edge, you need to wrap them with “full-size” div:
<div class="full-size"><img src="image.jpg" /></div>

Is there any way to add the Archives into the menu with a drop down box of all monthly archives?

elemis

Hi,

There doesn’t seem to be a direct way to do this. You will need to copy the links from the Archive widget and add them to the menu using “Custom Links”.

Hi,

From my last message, i’ve changed the <title> by an other one, now, the title works.

My other problem is the slogan doesn’t appear when i share my page (on facebook, for example : http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/9073/image6ea.png)

Thank you ! (i’m not sure for my english, sorry)

Which URL you share exactly, and what slogan should appear when you share?

In this example, I share a post of my blog : http://orgams.fr/2013/01/10/valhalla-sweetgrass-productions/ And, there is no slogan when I share it…. the slogan I’ld like is : Libertins passionnĂ©s du culturel

elemis

Where is this slogan should be taken from? Couldn’t see it anywhere on the page.
