Hey B, yeah that’s what I mean. only 15 posts are showing up and no “older” text button option is at the end to let you go to the other postings. I am applying this theme to an already existing blog if that makes any difference.

Also my blog postings aren’t in a specific “page” unfortunately, they are just added on when posted and the latest posts are shown since it’s just a blog. The only pages that are on it is an about me, shop and contact page.

Is there a way to make a page and migrate all my posts to that page so I can then assign it to shown as the blog template on the site?

Thanks for all you help.

Heya WG!

Is there a way to make a page and migrate all my posts to that page so I can then assign it to shown as the blog template on the site?

Sure – just create a blank page, assign the blog template of your preference, and leave the category filters empty :)

If that doesn’t help, let’s have ya file a ticket at http://makedesign.ticksy.com with a private login so I can take a peek – since you’ve got 1,000+ posts, I want to make sure I’m clear on what you’re asking before I fire off an answer ;)

Just request Brandon in your ticket and re-summarize the request so the other support specialists ignore the post.

Cheers! B

Hi – just downloaded this theme and have a problem right away:

In ‘theme options>theme skin’ when I select for the sidebar placement to be right, it’s not floating correctly. Solution?

How hard would it be to hack Shape Shifter so that there are multiple scrolling landing pages? I’m wanting to use this as a portfolio/resume site, and it would be great if I could adjust the pages included in the scroll to be appropriate for each potential client. To be specific: www.website.com – gives a default page. www.website.com/about – gives a slight variation on the above.

Any thoughts? Neil

Heya Neil!

Short answer – pretty darned hard – your best bet would actually be to setup WordPress multisite then use a different site with ShapeShifter2 installed to simulate the same basic idea… but again, it’s still sorta tricky business as there’s a lot of coding devoted to just getting one scrolling page up and running, let alone multiples ;)

Hey there! Quick question… I just updated to the most recent version of your theme, and I’ve lost all my scrolling menus. How do I get them back? In your upgrade docs, it says to press the “reload xml” button, but there’s no button like that in theme options.

http://themacgarage.com

Still loving this theme though! thanks!

*Also, menues do not show up with adding them via Appearance -> Menus.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Crap!

Usually when you update a theme, you just need to reset your menus from the Appearances > menus panel :) The old menus should all still be there, you just need to re-save them under the locations panel on that page.

Cheers! B

Hey B,

I’ve done all that, actually, and they’re still not showing up. Any other suggestions? I’ve left the most recent version of the theme active so you can see it. Thanks!

Heya Craprock – Hmmm – let’s have ya file a ticket over at http://makedesign.ticksy.com – to this day I’ve never seen a menu wiped out completely though, so this could be another issue altogether where the only solution is to re-setup the menu again (in fact, this might still be quicker than me doing a bunch of debugging). Either way, let me know and I’ll be glad to take a peek :)

Hi B, I quite like your theme, and purchased it too and also did a webpage for friend of mine. the link is www.packandmail.com.au but feels like the website loads quite slow. Do you have any suggestions on that? And also any suggestions for making it SEO friendly will be appreciated. Kind regards G.

Good day! :)

Is 2.0.4 ready for download? The update log is unclear as to its immediate availability or soon to be available.

The current download version is 2.0.3

Have a great day. Be awesome!

2.0.4 is ready as of last night :) I uploaded it late in the evening, and it had been approved by the morning. I’m just waking up now, so I’ll be updating each log this morning.

Hey,

Really loving the theme. I love having blog posts on the front sliding page, but the latest blog posts title is being assigned as the homepage’s title. Anyway around this? http://howtoaupairdaringly.com/

Best, Tiger

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Tiger!

A couple things – #1 – grab the 2.0.4 update, it includes a bunch of new stuff that’s worth picking up :)

Next, I didn’t really see what you were referring to… what “homepage title” are you referencing? The browser bar? I’m not entirely sure why that’d happen, but one of the free SEO plugins might actually give you the ability to assign a fixed title for the landing page.

Thanks! B

I just installed the theme and I don’t see any difference between the three skins!

Also, your first FAQ none of it is possible. Items 3 and 4 are not there anywhere.

I like the way the demo is but am not seeing anything like it in the control panel.

Very frustrated.

Heya Life!

Hmmm – It sounds like you might have an incomplete theme file… try re-downloading/re-uploading the theme as that’ll often fix issues like this where random options don’t load up properly.

Cheers! B

lifeundone

Nope, nothing different with a fresh download and install. dailyink.ca

lifeundone

Gave up. Can’t keep fussing with it. Client is waiting. Trying another theme instead. Will have to install this on another server and try again to get it working. #frustrated

Heya Life!

Hmmm – that’s really odd to be honest – we haven’t had a single report of this sort of thing yet. When you’re ready to try this out again (and I understand your frustration entirely!) , just file a ticket with login credentials to http://makedesign.ticksy.com so we can take a peek at what’s going on in your specific setup.

1.- I saw yor 2 diferents menus. BLACK and WHITE , i need my menu in the left side in white like this.. http://themacgarage.com

2.- it is posible to put a second LOGO . for example: HOME ( logo 1 ) SERVICES ( logo2 )

thanks and regards

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi LeRush!

1. I just turned on the left version: Check it out on the demo now :)

2. Hmmm – I don’t see why not – that might take a bit of extra coding to insert a second logo into the header.php file, but it’s not terribly tricky stuff to add an HTML image. You can also make the request over at http://makedesign.ticksy.com and we’ll be glad to assist once you have the theme setup.

Cheers! B

LeRush

Heys epicera

you know, I’m going to buy the theme , i saw your update, tahnks

I Buy one year ago your theme Artboard and am very happy with it.

So Thanks for the support technician, I notice you when i need to add the second logo.

It is posible add google maps?? and video??

Regards

MDNW
MDNW Author

Yep – Google maps and video are both supported… for the maps, the best way is to grab the recommended Shortcodes Ultimate plugin which includes a font embed tool. For videos, you can use any embed method you’d like – we like the simple oEmbed method described here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds

Cheers! B

epicera!

Hiya .. Before updating my install I tested the demo here at TF .. Is it just me or is the Navigation missing in the smartphone view? Everything looks correct, but the dropdown navigation isn’t appearing for me ..

Thanks for the heads up Pixel! You actually just caught me mid-dev on a test for our new menu patch for older browsers… it should be all set now.

How do I get rid of the “Font From”, at the bottom right of the footer???

MDNW

Heya Josh!

Just empty out the Font Replacement field in the Theme Options > Typography panel – that’s grabbing the theme demo’s Typekit settings that you probably don’t need.

Hello Brandon.

I have a quick question since I have a particluar design in mind that I would like to try to realize with ShapeShifter 2. Since you can place the navigation/sidebar left and right is it possible to have TWO sidebars, one left and one right? I’d love to have the menu sit on the left and put other widgets on the right.

Thank you! Arne

Am I able to open a youtube video lightbox when I click on the blurb photo instead of lightboxing the photo?

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi Thehomecoming,

Yes! You can to do this by adding the link to the Blurb # URL .

Cheers, Charlie

Thanks Charlie, but can you give me a little more guidance? When I put the link in the blurb link (welcome sections options), it will either go to the youtube website instead of a lightbox, or when I switch the lightbox settings in “image and thumbnail settings” it just opens a lightbox of the photo, not the video.

Heya homecoming! Can you repost this one with some links and the original question to http://makedesign.ticksy.com – Thanks! It’s a lot easier for us to track multi-question posts over there and we’ll get back to ya as quickly as posisble :) Brandon

Hi

I’m looking at purchasing shapeshifter 2 and have a few queries.

1. I tried the demo version on my iphone and displays incorrently, is not responsive and the navigation doesn’t work on some of the pages. 2. Is it possible to display video on the homepage slider? 3. Is it possible to have 2 different portfolios on the same site.

Cheers

Simon

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi Simon,

Thank you for considering Shapeshifter2!

01: The demo does not have a responsive mode, but the theme (when installed) is responsive. Check out: http://shapeshifter.mdnw.net/

02: The slider has the ability to open video in a lightbox when clicked, but it does not display inline video without some custom work. You can, though, add inline video to the content section.

03: You can have as many portfolio pages as you like. For more information on our portfolio pages, check out The Portfolio v. Post Relationship video on our YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/makedesignnotwar

Let me know if that helps, and if you have any other questions. Cheers, Charlie

Hi !

Great Theme.

This might sound basic however,

1. I wanted to know if there was a way to order the category titles that appear in portfolio view? 2. How to make them capitalised as at the moment it forces them to be lower case?

Thanks a lot!

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi Astar!

1. They’re ordered by date (which is the WP default)... so the easiest way to shift the order is to re-arrange the published dates.

2. Lower case? I believe right now they are all upper-case… but either way, drop something like this in your custom CSS panel:

h5 {
    text-transform: capitalize;
}

And don’t be afraid to use our new support ticket system over at http://makedesign.ticksy.com :)

I love the theme. Great work! I’d like the logo in a horizontal header div, spanning the width of the page (not in the sidebar), similar to Super Skeleton. Can you give some hints and point me to the files to edit to enable this? Is this a doable customization? or would you recommend another theme you’ve developed, I need the full navigation on the side, like ShapeShifter 2, the “one page” features aren’t really needed for this project. (I’m comfortable with css changes and some cut and paste PHP changes :)

Heya Lel!

I’m going to need to refer you to the new freelancer-for-hire site (http://freelancers.mdnw.net) to get some help with this stuff since we’re getting pretty deep into “theme customization” territory now. You can review our support policy here as for what we can and can’t help out with: http://makedesign.ticksy.com/faq/268

Holler if you have any other basic theme questions :) B
