Discussion on ShapeShifter 2 : Responsive, Flexible, One Page

Hello! I am a millimeter away from buying the heck out of this theme, it is such a creative and brilliant piece!

I have a problem, though – I was looking at the flexible grid layout in Chrome, and resized my window to see how it responded. The navigation menu went away like it should when the window was small, but when I resized to normal the navigation menu flickered and disappeared. I scrolled up and down to see if it would reload, but it didn’t. I attempted in Firefox and it works fine… is this just me?

Hi Pirate!

That’s more or less the problem with resizing the browser window over an over… users generally don’t do that – the responsive stuff is for first-loads on mobile devices ;) The bugs that pop up have to do with desktop browsers that don’t behave the same way.

so, im not going to beat around the bush. i pirated this theme. Its the first time i have used such a large one.

now, with that said, i have since paid for it. This is an amazing piece of design and software.

I dont have any questions. i just wanted to thanks the creators and I hope that everyone that does pirate themes like this give back to the creators at some point. I know not all of them do, but not all of us pirates are the scum of the earth.

I’ve been extremely busy & really wanted to dig around the comments to see if anyone has asked this. But I’m having an issue with the “Contact Us” section. When using the contact form provided by the WP jetpack. When I ran a test & filled out the info and hit “submit or send” button it redirected me to a random page within the theme, and the info filled in the contact form never reaches my email at all.

I ended up installing some other contact form plugin & its currently working. But the “Contact Form 7” is that already installed with the theme? Or is that a Plugin I would need to search for?

On the 3 “BLURB” images below the Slider…why isn’t there an example of where the “FULL POST” which clicked goes to? Also what is the “PLUS SYMBOL” when hovering over blurb image suppose to do? On your demo neither the full post or the plus symbol redirects to an example when clicked. Currently on the project I’m doing using this theme, when you click on the “Plus Symbol” it says: “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.” I would like for it to when cicked it opens up the image in the Light Box preview just as when you click on the small arrow on the lower right corner of the box. I tried putting the image link url in the Blurbs url place in the theme options section for the blurbs and made the plus symbol work when clicked…but when clicking full post of course it made just that link open up in a new tab window, which I don’t want to happen. So if I can either take the plus symbol off and leave just the Arrow on the bottom right corner w/ no option for “Full Post” that would be great or if I can make the plus symbol work when clicked without full post option would be great as well.

Heya Rlota!

Let’s move this conversation over to the support forum at http://makedesign.ticksy.com if you don’t mind.

In response though:

1. The demo is setup to display really basic stuff – for instance the blurbs just link to the homepage on there – but you can easily have them link to a full post. You just enter a URL and it will direct users there when they click it.

2. The plus symbol launches a lightbox with the “Blurb #: URL” in there. Right now it’s setup based on users feedback to link directly to the “Blurb 1: URL” though… so if you wanted to open a image/video, place the image/video, place the url to that video in the blurb URL field.

Hope that helps! B

Hello, I´m using shape shifter 2 with the Scrolling landing page on. Is there a workaround so I can use the blog as a News page?

Now it´s empty with the landing page meny turned on. Alex

Hi Alex!

It’s mentioned in the documentation a bit, but you can’t use a page template on the landing page… basically because WordPress doesn’t allow page-templates inside page-templates… so to use the blog, you must add it to the Traditional Menu, not the scrolling menu :)

Hi, I´m using shape shifter 2 and at the bottom of my homepage I keep getting – Warning: join() [function.join]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/bamboo/public_html/wp-content/themes/shapeshifter-2/home.php on line 16 - and the homepage also displays all the other pages from the website at the bottom in a mess and I just can’t seem to figure out what is wrong. Any ideas?

I love ShapeShifter 2! But I have a question: How can I remove the “Recent Comments”, “Archives”, “Categories: No Categories”, and “Meta” tabs from the left hand side of the page. I have not gone live with my site yet, so maybe only admin see them…? If not, how do I remove them?

Thank you kindly!

Perfect! Thank you for being so amazing!

Hi! I purchased and installed the theme but my posts don’t publish. I followed your video tutorial for installation.

Hi Blondy! This sounds more like a WP issue than a theme issue… unless you just aren’t using the right template for the blog… in which case I’d recommend going through the documentation just to be safe. And remember that we also recommend that you post to http://makedesign.ticksy.com for basic support questions, not here as we can’t accept login details and stuff like that here without it being public.

Cheers! B

I’ve looked around for an answer, perhaps I’ve missed it. Pretty stupid question.

Where do I download v2.0.6 and then how to I update my site with it? I don’t see anywhere to update, as I’m currently running v1.3.0.

Thanks.

Hi Jimi!

We have a theme update video here: http://youtube.com/makedesignnotwar – but you basically just do it from the Appearances > Themes panel.

Cheers! B

Hey guys,

Love the theme. But I cannot for the life of me get it to install like the demo. I get some errors during the XML import about contact forms not being successful and when I go through the rest of the instructions I just get a blank white screen for my home page with the admin bar on top like normal.

If I switch back to a default theme it everything is working fine.

Please help!

Hey I was just curious, on themeforest you have the latest update as December 2012 and the version is 2.0.6, but on your updates page you have an update from March and the version is 2.0.7. If there’s a new update is there somewhere else I should go to download it? Would love to keep as current as possible.

Also, as a side note, your links on the update page and on Ticksy are still directing people to the epicera portfolio on themeforest (which doesn’t seem to exist anymore) instead of the MDNW portfolio.

Hi Dreyes!

The latest update on this specific theme is still the 2.0.6 version as it’s been “feature locked” at that version… meaning, we deem the theme stable to the point where we don’t plan to add anything new in the near future :) I’ll try to make this more clear on that update page!

I just purchased this theme the other day and really like it. However I am having trouble with the portfolio image portion, I would like to display my work in the same way that you have the 5 column display inside your html “body”

Where can I find to insert and set up my photos like this or how would I go about finding where to insert this code?

Hi there,

I was wondering if there is a way to get rid of the enlarge button on the prettyphoto. I’m not sure is someones already asked this but I’d like to get rid of that option and don’t know where to do that. Please help. Thanks for the great theme btw.

Hi Bhoglar!

I’d recommend checking out prettyPhoto’s documentation on this one as that’s what we’re using for the lightbox script :)http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/

I just installed the theme and imported the test data – but my home page is blank – http://www.act1performingarts.com/. I see that it added a bunch of pages, posts, media, etc…

I switch to the 2012 theme and everything works. Deleted ShapeShifter theme and reinstalled it and blank home page again.

help?

Gorgeous theme.. 1 question/problem-

http://rudoreels.com/digital/

that feature where the sidebar is supposed to scroll if it’s longer than the content or whatever….doesn’t work. I can’t get the sidebar to scroll unless I resize the window first. Hopefully this is a quick fix. Any ideas? Thanks :)

Hi there,

In case of the ShapeShifter 2 template, the menu on the left side of the window does not roll down with the content on the right side. This is fine when there are only a few menu items, they are visible at all times regardless of how much content is opened on the right side. However, we have a lot more menu items, which causes difficulty in case of smaller resolution (?). The items on the bottom of the menu are not visible. Could you please help us change the settings in a way that the left side menu roll down with the content on the right side? In case we change the size of the window, the menu rolls down at first, this is the feature that we would like to retain at all times. Thanks a lot :-)

Hey guys, I feel like an idiot here, but: I want to download the latest version of Shapeshifter2 (I bought it almost 2 years ago), and I can’t find anywhere on this site to download the update.

Can you tell me how to find it???

Thanks, N

Hi N!

If you’ve purchased it, it’d be in your Downloads folder… are you sure you didn’t buy the ShapeShifter 1 template though? I don’t see a purchased flag on your username is all… or perhaps you picked it up under a different account?
