I bought this theme and my client is asking me to have 3 columns in homepage instead of four. Can you help me do this? Or if is possible refund the money and purchase Delta instead? I am working on this site http://resinno.com/newsite/ notice that I change the box size but I don’t know how to re size the feature image. Thank you in advance for your help

WPExplorer

Changing the columns would require changes in the CSS for normal and responsive layouts. I see you’ve already got the width, to change the image it’s as simple as editing includes/loop-gallery.php. and changing line 13. You can see the value 216 – that is the width, you can change this to w/e you want.

You can’t get a refund to purchase a new theme, but if you contact me via my profile page I’ll see what I can do.

How do you set the number of posts in the blog page? right now, the default in Admin -> Settings -> Reading seems to be 6. I tried to change it to 2, but it doesn’t change. Thanks.

WPExplorer

That is exactly how it should be changed. And I just verified and it works.

Make sure under Settings->Reading for the option that says “Posts page:” it’s set to the default (blank), because if you set it to the blog template page it can cause issues.

If you continue having issues, please open a ticket at wpthemehelp.com – this way you can open a private ticket and provide me logins so I can get it fixed up for you.

Thank you for the purchase, AJ

Hi. I’m getting a 404 error when attempting to view my galleries. They show up on the home screen fine, I just can’t view them. Not sure what to do. Thanks.

All fixed. It was the permalinks doing it.

WPExplorer

Glad you got it fixed ;) Thanks for the purchase!

No worries. It’s a great theme. One more thing… some of the theme images aren’t loading. (the previous/next arrows on the slider, and the icons next to the date/category/author on the galleries).

WPExplorer

There was actually a rule against bundling icon fonts with the themes on ThemeForest – it was actually removed the other day – but during this time our themes couldn’t have them built-in so you need to add them yourself. This is mentioned in the theme documentation files as well as there is a video guide here:

http://www.wpthemehelp.com/knowledgebase/add-font-awesome-icons-to-your-theme/

After adding the icons (you can do so via FTP ) make sure to clear your browser cache. Otherwise you might not see the changes.

I’ll make sure to update the theme now that we are allowed to have them in by default for future buyers ;)

Let me know if you have any concerns.

Hi.

Is it possible to make videos galleries?

WPExplorer

The best way to do this would be to use the column shortcodes or an external plugin.

Hi, I downloaded and tried to install but Wp says the theme lacks “Style.css”. Any ideas how to fix this?

WPExplorer

Thank you for the purchase. You need to make sure to install only the main theme folder and not all the other folders included with your purchase. Please have a look here.

Does it support RTL?

There isn’t any rtl.css file, this is something you’ll need to create.

Hi mate, I am you’re big fan because of your professional work :)

well the theme has multimple authors portfolio feature its great wuuuHUUU. But can this theme have front-end portfolio upload feature because i don’t want authors to login wordpress. Just simply login from front-end and and upload there portfolio or freebies?

So is there any free pluging to incorporate it. or it will be easy to achive this on your “SHARE THEME”. :)

WPExplorer

Hi there.

Actually I’m not quite sure how you would achive this. You would really have to make something custom I think. The way the authors work is actually with a custom taxonomy and not the default WP author system (FYI) so it might not work with certain plugins that do allow for that.

If you find a good plugin and want to test with the theme contact us via our profile page and we can see how to assist you prior to purchase.

With Wordpress 3.5, I’m having trouble with images. When I upload a photo, I am no longer able to uncheck the button to stop it from showing in the slider at the top of the gallery.

Will this be corrected in the future?

Thanks.

WPExplorer

Correct, this is no longer necessary due to how 3.5 works. Prior any image you inserted to the post became an attachment automatically, now they don’t.

What I will do is update to provide support for the “Gallery MetaBox” plugin:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gallery-metabox/

If you install this plugin then you add the following insider your functions.php file within the php tags:

if ( !function_exists( 'custom_be_gallery_metabox_post_types' ) ) :
    function custom_be_gallery_metabox_post_types( $classes ) {
            return array('post', 'gallery');
    }
    add_filter( 'be_gallery_metabox_post_types', 'custom_be_gallery_metabox_post_types' );
endif;

It will add support for the plugin for your Gallery. What this does is it shows your images in a gallery below the editor and you should be able to click on the “x” icon to exclude any from the slider.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

Awesome theme!!!

Is there any support for this theme for IE8? When I test this site using IE8 any drop down menus disappear when I attempt to click on the submenu and also my sliders do now load properly. Any help would be great.

Thanks!!!

WPExplorer

Thanks for the purchase, glad you like it!

When I check my live demo in IE8 the only issue I see is the search-bar is misplaced, drop-downs and sliders are working fine.

The issue with old browsers like IE8 is that it also depends not just on the browser but also the release number and the operating system. For example IE8 on Win 8 is diff then IE8 on XP. So it’s quite hard to troubleshoot and provide well rounded support for these browsers.

There is an IE8 stylesheet in the CSS folder you can use to make some tweaks if you are seeing issues on your end.

Also, if you have any plugins installed you might want to try de-activating them to make sure the conflicts aren’t coming from there – since IE8 is very picky with javascript a simple comma can throw it all off.

I purchased Share, downloaded the zip file and attempted to install on Wordpress 3.5. It fails saying that it’s missing the style.css file. I have not altered or unzipped the zip file. Any help? I have opened a copy to see if the style.css was in the zipped file. It was, but outside the css folder. Should it be inside that folder?

WPExplorer

You must extract the zip file you download from themeforest because the root folder has documentation, licensing, sample data..etc.

WordPress requires you upload only the theme zipped file.

Once unzipped open the “Upload” folder and you’ll see the theme in there at Share.zip – this is what you want to install (see video).

Thanks for the purchase!

I’m new to how galleries work, and have a simple question. How can I limit the gallery posts on a page to a single category?

Or can I create several galleries… and then “assign” each gallery to specific pages?

Thanks in advance.

WPExplorer

Hi there,

Sorry for the delayed response. Basically the galleries support categories, tags, and authors. Just like you would categorize normal posts you would do so for galleries.

Then, the theme includes certain templates you can use to showcase them all. For example if you create a new page and select the template “Gallery Categories” you can create a page just like this:

http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/share/all-categories/

You don’t have to though, all the categories, tags, author pages will be created automatically by WordPress. To view them, while in the dashboard you can click on their name to open the page.

Hope this makes sense!

Thanks for the purchase.

I watched the tour video and am slightly confused.

If i have a blog with ~1,000 image posts (it’s a gallery site) would it be possible to move all of them to gallery type posts and not loose data like tags, categories, etc.? I’m currently using Harpoon as my theme.

Also, does the theme work with Jetpack’s continuos loading feature or will the theme only allow the usual pagination numbers.

WPExplorer

1. You can use a plugin to switch post types (there are a lot out there). But you will lose your tags, categories. Unless there is a way to move those taxonomies as well, but I haven’t seen a plugin for that yet.

2. The jetpack continuous loading feature will require editing the template to work with it – http://jetpack.me/support/infinite-scroll/

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply!

Can you recommend a switch post type plugin (wordpress 3.5)

Forgot to ask this before but, does the homepage/gallery offer pagination? Demo does not have any but if we have more than x # of gallery posts, does it have some sort of pagination or load more option.

And lastly, do you offer custom modifications/development?

WPExplorer

There is literally one called Post Type Switcher – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-type-switcher/

Yes, the homepage gallery will paginate and you can select how many to show via the admin – take a look at a customized version of the theme here – http://www.psdexplorer.com/

I am to swamped at the moment for any custom work, sorry.

Default-user

Sorry for the late response but will you be able to help edit the required template to make jet pack’s infinite scroll work?

WPExplorer

Sorry I don’t do any custom work.

Is there any way to change the URL from ”.com/gallery/post…” to ”.com/picture/post…” Thanks

WPExplorer

yes, you can edit the slug of the post type via theme_functions/post_types.php

Default-user

when i change the ‘rewrite’ => array( ‘slug’ => ‘gallery’ ), to ‘rewrite’ => array( ‘slug’ => ‘picture’ ), i get

404 Unfortunately, the page you tried accessing could not be retrieved. Please visit the homepage.

any ideas? Thanks.

WPExplorer

You need to re-save your permalinks.

ps: please not support is for buyers only. Please create an account at wpthemehelp.com for any further questions – thanks!

Default-user

Iam just helping to a friend that ordered the theme. I will buy it for my site too if there any way to sub categories in gallery to the URL like in regular categories.

WPExplorer

Not sure what the question is…

You can change the taxonomy slug for gallery categories in the file located at theme_functions/taxonomies.php

is this what you were asking?

Default-user

No I was talking about the categories and sub categories in the “Gallery Categories”.

for example if you go to “Gallery Categories” and make a “category” and “sub category”. Then you click in the site on the “sub category” you should get a URL like that ”.com/category/sub-category” but in your theme with “Gallery Categories” when you click on “sub category” you get only ”.com/sub-category”

ok?

WPExplorer

I’m actually not quite sure how to create hierarchical permalinks for custom post types in WordPress. I’m pretty sure you can’t actually do that in WordPress (in any theme) see the trac here:
