Hi there,

I have been using Shapeshifter 1 for one of my websites. Can Shapeshifter 2 be implemented as an upgrade (plug & play)?

Thanks, stella

Heya Stella!

Yes and no – the blog posts and some other stuff will transfer, but we totally overhauled this theme from the ground up, so there’s likely going to be some changes that you need to make :)

Cheers! B

Hi i’m having issues with my custom menu appearing on mobile as well as my responsive menu so there is a double up of menu’s on mobile. Is there a way to have the custom menu appear only on desktop version?

Cheers, Jules

Heya Julian!

Short answer: Yep, it should work if you have 2 menu spaces… assign one to the Primary space, and one to the Responsive space. Then flush any browser caches and re-try.

Please repost this over at http://makedesign.ticksy.com – it takes just a minute and it’ll allow us to get back to you quickly (and you can post confidential stuff like login details if you need to without it being public). Oh, and you can also search all past questions, which means that you might not have to wait at all for an answer!

Why? We’ve been running our Ticksy forum for almost 6 months now, and it’s time to finally move over all support over there as it’s simply better for everyone involved.

Oh, and please verify your license over there too ;)

Thanks, and we’ll look forward to hearing from ya over there! Brandon, Charlie & Chris (The MDNW Support Crew)

Hello,

Very sorry if you have already posted a comment about this question but there are a LOT of comments to sift through!

We’re trying to use posts to play videos in the lightbox (with JW Player). It seems only post images are capable of being seen in the lightbox…

Is there a way to get around this with galleries, if so, where do I access the galleries as there isn’t a menu option for them or portfolios in the admin dashboard of our WP site.

Could you pretty please point me in the right direction?!!

Thanks very much.

Hayley

Heya Hayley!

Check out our support forum at http://makedesign.ticksy.com – you can actually search past-tickets over there ;)

In short though, you can launch video in the lightbox by placing your YouTube, Vimeo, or .MOV URL in the post’s “Custom Lightbox URL ” Field under the Skeleton Post options.

You can also manually add your link to the lightboxed video using the standard prettyPhoto documentation: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/

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

Is it possible to use multiple images per post instead of only the Featured Image?

Some templates allow <!-more-> tags to show the remaining post text or images. Is there a function, script, plugin, or any adjustment we can make ourselves to do this with this theme?

Example: 1 post has 3 images

Post Title (links to post #1) Image 1 (links to post #1) Image 2 (links to post #1) Image 3 (links to post #1)

Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond to this question.

Sincerely, Matt Seligman

Brandon,

I’m not sure if this has already been addressed, but does the new theme support Jetpack’s “Infinite Scroll” feature?

Regards.

Heya Nycto – Nope – not yet anyways as it requires some custom integration coding :) You can always hit up one of the guys at http://freelance.mndw.net to help with custom mods though!

Brandon…. One more thing! My page is somehow screwed up after the option-tree update. If you see the top links to the left and click on one as the page scrolls down it is shifted to the left! I don’t know how to fix that!

Hi Nycto!

It looks like you have an extra closing DIV in there somewhere… try checking your pages for any extra elements :)

If that doesn’t do it, file a ticket with login credentials for us at http://makedesign.ticksy.com :)

Love your work. Already have one of your other themes. Aside from the included skins, what colors/highlights can be modified out of the box? I am still learning CSS …

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Flac!

Pretty much everything to be honest – we have a custom skin builder that lets you set the color/bg-image of nearly every major element of the layout (top hat, header, body, footer, sub-footer, link colors, etc.)

There’s also a “Custom CSS ” inserter that will let you add your own custom styles without messing with the core theme… which is a great way to learn without risking breaking anything!

Hope that helps! B

Hi there, since the OptionTree update, my subnav is showing up behind the slider on the homepage: sunmullet.com.

I think this is a z-index issue and it only appears to have affected Chrome, but I am not sure how to fix it. Can you please assist? Thank you, Matthew

After many problems with Shapeshifter 1 you were nice enough to provide me a free update to Shapeshifter 2, however since it was a direct transfer I’m not able to download any updates and I’ve noticed there have been quite a few, as I’m still on version 1.3.0. Would there be any possibility of these updates being accessible to me or would you prefer if I buy the license to receive these updates?

I tried changing the background image and creating a new CCS skin but thats not showing up either. What am i missing? I am using the latest version of worpdress and not additional plugins.

I’m looking to launch a new video business in the next month or so and I bought Shapeshifter 2 on the basis of its versatility and responsiveness. Great theme and lots to consider in the way of customization. I’d really be interested to see if anyone has links to their own sites using this theme, especially those who have set it up differently from the demo, just to see what the various possibilities are. Anyone care to share? Thanks!

Hello, after installing the theme the Screen Options tab, Help tab and Add Media button seem to be disabled on page and post editing pages. Was this intentional? Can you provide any information on this?

Heya Dgood! Grab the latest version (2.0.6) – it patches this up :) Check out the FAQ for more details at http://makedesign.ticksy.com

I added a custom social icon in the form of a email button where users can send an email directly. It always opens a new page.

I used mailto:address@mail.com

How can I stop it from opening a new page all the time.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Valentin!

You can change the behavior by heading into the element-getsocial.php file and changing this line:

$slidelink = '<a target="_blank" href="'.$slide['link'].'">'; 
</a>

to this:

$slidelink = '<a href="'.$slide['link'].'">'; 
</a>

We usually reserve the http://makedesign.ticksy.com forums for these sorts of support questions – so feel free to file over there in the future.

Thanks. :)

Heya Doc!

I mistyped a couple responses ago – 2.0.6.1 is the latest… 2.0.6.2 is the version I’m working on right now ;)

Hello. I just bought this theme, but i have an issue. When i scroll down the page, the sidebar doesn’t scroll down also. It is always on the same spot. But the content, it scrolls down. If i want to add more pages to the left menu, the pages will be hidden. My site: www.agro-servicos.com NOTE: if i press CTRL- and CTRL+, the sidebar scroll’s down like it should. How can i solve this problem? In advance, i am not an english native :) thanks

MDNW

Hi Andre!

That’s how the sidebar is supposed to work… from the demo text: If the sidebar size exceeds the browser windows height, it will scroll with the other content, otherwise it will stay fixed at the left.

Cheers! B

Is there a way to make the sidebar scroll down always?

Sure – Add this custom CSS:

#section-sidebar {
    position: relative !important;
}

I’ve just bought this template and it doesn’t work properly on safari?

The bottom black bar & side nav moves up with the page instead of being anchored in place, a few second after you stop scrolling they appear back in place. Is there a fix for this please? I haven’t changed anything with the template yet. I have just downloaded it and opened the index file in a couple of different browsers.

Thanks

Hi Cristina!

This is more of a question to file over at out support ticket system at http://makedesign.ticksy.com :) Read the FAQ and disable all plugins and all that stuff just to be safe though – we have no other reports of Safari issues, so usually when hiccups like this happens, it’s a plugin conflict or you need to re-download and re-install the theme.

Hello,

Great looking theme! Can it be integrated with woocommerce?

Thank you,

Thanks Pal!

Not right out of the box – we don’t officially integrate with any eCommerce plugins, but you can usually integrate it with a bit of work and help from the plugin authors :)
