Hi! Thanks for a great theme… Im having some issues and was hoping you could assist me in customizing. I wanted to make 6 menu categories on my main menu with drop down sub categories that are persistent and fixed. (even when you scroll you can access the menu) Before I purchased it appeared that on the preview it remained fixed as I scrolled.

I tried changing the sizes of the photos on my blog to the 710 by 360 and Im just not pleased with the quality. Is there any way we can up the resolution?

Also, what is translating?

thanks so much I appreciate it

Hi, Thanks for using my theme, Do you able to make the menu or only asking how to make the menu fixed? Here’s the instruction to make menu : http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Menu_User_Guide

While for making them sticky: Go to “Dashboard->Appearance->Customize” and then in the “Navigation” Tab you would see check box for “Primary Navigation Sticky” and “Secondary Navigation Sticky” check them to make the navigation sticky and uncheck to make them not sticky.

About the photos, do you mean your existing image before you change the theme? If so you can use a plugin “Regenerate thumbnail” http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ but still if the full image you upload less then 710 it will still poor quality.

For the translation you can see the Documentation, in the Translating the Theme section.

If you still have problems in using the theme or have any other question feel free to ask.

Regards,

Anggun.

Hi, I really like this theme a lot. And the transition has been smooth. However, my blog has a lot of old posts with photo galleries that no longer appear.

I think the problem is in the WordPress menu, I used to have a “gallery” option, which has gone away for some reason.

For an example of what’s happening and the code previously used to get the gallery to appear, please check out the sample post here:

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi, Sorry for a late reply.

It seems like the gallery you set before is the feature of your previous theme unless there’re some gallery plugin you turned off, you may add the gallery again using the standard WP gallery Or what theme did you used before using serene theme? i maybe can help you recover if you have already tons of posts with that gallery feature.

I want to exclude categories from the home page. I go to the Customize area and go to “post settings” where it says “Do not show posts if home with these categories”. I select the “featured” category, because that is the category that appears in the slider. I click “save”. I expect it to exclude the featured category from the home page but it does not.

Can you help resolve this issue or provide documentation on how the feature is supposed to work. Thank you.

plus62

It should work, but i’ll check again and will let you know.

I still haven’t been able to get this to work. So you’re saying that it should work as I described?

I would also like to limit the number of posts that appear on the home page but don’t see if that is a feature that is built in, or if it is a setting that I can code in. Can you advise on how to limit the number of posts that appear on the home page to 9.

Thank you

plus62

It’s on WP setting, go to Dashboard->Setting->Reading, you enter the value for “Blog pages show at most” input.

I would like to center the text on the slider but it seems to be left justified by default. Is this a css fix or is there a way to change that?

thank you

plus62

Yes you can use css to achieve this the css shoud be like this :

#featured-slider header{
    text-align:left;
}
#featured-slider header .entry-meta:after{
    margin:10px 0;
}

It would be best if you make a child theme for any modification, so your modification will not lost when you update the theme.

Finally, I would like to use banner advertisement on the home page as shown in the demo. I go to the Widget area and see there is a theme widget plus62 ads 125. I try to enable the “header advertisement spot” or the “footer advertisement spot” by selecting it and clicking “add widget”—but it doesn’t seem to add anything. It also says ” see documentation for more information.” but when I look at the documentation provided with the them, there is nothing about advertisements. Can you please point me to the documentation regarding the advertisement widget or advise me on resolving the issue if I am misunderstanding. Thank you.

plus62
It’s using the text widget, you just add the code on text widget, you can use the code from Google Adsense etc. there. Or if you want to use your own banner you can use code like this on text widget :
<a href="http://themeforest.net/item/serene-magazine-wordpress-theme/5663537?ref=plus62" target="blank">
    <img src="http://theme.plus62.me/serene/files/2013/09/Ad_728x90_3.jpg" style="height: auto" alt="advertisement-1">
</a>

I’ll check again the documentation. Please feel free to ask again any more questions about the theme.

Hi There,

Great theme thanks. Can you tell me how to remove the “xxxx 1 of 3” from the homepage slideshow?

Thanks

plus62
You can add some CSS code to remove them.
#featured-slider header .entry-meta{
      display:none;
}

Even it’s just a little change on css it would be good if you use child theme to make modification, so all the mod will not be replaced by the future update. If you not familiar with child theme here some article about it http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes. Let me know if there are another questions.

Hi there, we are trying to change the image size of images in our posts and the re-size tool does not work. When we purchased Serene Theme we were never given the documentation to go with it.

Would you please send us the documentation and would you kindly explain how we can resolve the issue of image sizing?

Thank you : )

Default-user

How come no reply?

plus62

Hi im sorry, Do you mean you want to re-size all your images from your old posts before using my theme? it can be done using this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

And the documentation is included in the package, please re-download your theme.

Let me know if you have another questions.

Thanks.

Great theme! I’m wondering if there is a way to either a) reduce the width of the prev/next sides of the slider or b) remove these two panels entirely but keep the arrows in place to cycle through the slides? (These elements seem to be ul.flex-direction-nav.)

plus62

Yes, it can be done by some css, send me email via my profile(http://themeforest.net/user/plus62) page i will send you child theme with tweaked css how it to be done and instructions.

Default-user

Any ideas on how the main content slider can feature the most recent posts, regardless of category?

Okay, two stupid questions: 1. At what line do I change the content text size? 2. How do I disable the highlights when you type in the search form and comment form? Thanks.

plus62

Hi,

1. If you want to change the content text size you can add css like
body{
font-size:12px /* or any size you wish */
}
However it will this will effect the font size globaly, so if you want to change on the article content you can use :
.entry-content{
font-size:12px /* or any size you wish */
}

2. Do they have highlights? is there on any specifics browser?

Hi -

This is a dumb question, but I can’t figure out where to change the picture next to each contributor. Can you please help?

Thanks!

plus62

Hi,

It’s using Gravatar http://en.gravatar.com/ register the contributor email on gravatar (registered email should the same with the email’s account on with your WordPress site). Make account on gravatar, you can register as much as email for one account.

How do I add a graphic to the header advertisement spot?

Thanks!

plus62

Hi,

Go to Dashboard->Appearance->Widgets

Drag text widget to “Header advertisment spot” widget area, put the ad code(adsense or other ad) or if you want your own banner put in the text widget code like this:

<a href="http://themeforest.net/user/plus62/portfolio?ref=plus62" target="blank"><img src="http://theme.plus62.me/serene/files/2013/09/Ad_728x90_1.jpg" style="height: auto" alt="advertisement-1"></a>

If you have another questions please let me know. Thanks.

Hi there,

Have sent an email, but no reply yet. Basically, I bought this theme and I really like it! However, as soon as I started customizing the Featured Post Slider stopped working and just went away. Can you please fix this, or advise how to fix? I made sure that it was enabled, I set the correct Category, etc. So I think something got messed up with the code. Please let me know, looking forward to reply. Thanks! For reference: jadethread.com roxannejadethread@gmail.com

Great simple theme! is there a way we can Embed a youtube video as I load a link into ‘media’ and select video post but it just puts up the text as a link to the video, can we make it a active video on the page, homepage or even slide header?

Thanks Andrew

plus62

Hi, Im developing this right now, for now you can only choose for video format and put the youtube url in the video metabox (see the documentation). And im considering to put the video in the homepage and slider too.
