Hi there.

Thank you very much for such a nice theme!

I wonder how can I add a menu title not linking to any page in navigation section? It seems like I can only add a page or a category liking to some other pages.

Great theme…. We used it here: http://www.exxtra.nl/jaarinbeeld/

but we cannot find how we can get the + at the left bottom corner! in the nextpage.

greetings! jolanda

EugeneO

You need to use any portfolio item layout other than “Standard” for the text to appear in the sidebar with the ”+” button.

Default-user

Yes is works :-) thnx

When you click on the second image you see multiple images next to each other, how do i get that?

my idea: you see the person holding the ipad, and next to it a couple of screenshots from the project to scroll trough.

Default-user

whoooop :-) found it, thnx anyway

i am almost done, my final question: http://www.exxtra.nl/jaarinbeeld/?portfolio_item=standard-portfolio-item

Can i control the order of the images in gallery mode (i would like to see the picture of the person holding the Huge ipad first, and then the site printscreens.

THNX

EugeneO

Yes you can reorder images in galleries. Go to the portfolio item’s edit screen and click the “Add Media” button to open the Media Library window. In the Media Library window select the “Media Library” tab at the top, this will show all images you have uploaded to your site. From the drop down selection select “Uploaded to this post”. This will show the images attached to that Portfolio Item. You can then drag and drop them into order.

Hi, sweet theme, I’m glad I fought through my desire for instant gratification to figure out all the options you’ve included.

One that I can’t figure out easily… is there a way to keep the site logo that appears in then upper right corner to be persistent? I am using the grid gallery and when I scroll down my site logo scrolls up with everything and dissapears.

EugeneO

I’ve only tested this quickly so I don’t know for certain what knock-on affects this will have but first impressions are that it works okay.

Put this in the child theme’s style.css.
.logo { position: fixed; }

Awesome. Thank you! And thanks for the super-quick reply!

Hi EugeneO! Theme is working well. THANK YOU! Wanted to see if you have any ideas to improve my site speed. I optimized the images, added WP 3 Total Cache and Max CDN, etc, but it still is little slow. Is there javascript that holds the page rendering for some reason? Thank you for any help you can offer.

Jessica

EugeneO

The site is is going to be image heavy so site speed is going to be down to image file sizes and server speeds. Most of the javascript files are compressed and total less than 200kb so I don’t see that as a problem.

Post a link to your site and I’ll can take a look to see if there is anything obvious.

Default-user

Thanks Eugeno. http://www.roccolettieri.com. It looks beautiful!

EugeneO

The standard pages are loading in less than 3 seconds for me. The portfolio items are taking longer because of the images. The images are between 250kb and 1mb each, so combined they are adding up.

This portfolio item has 2 broken images that are 5.9mb and 5.6mb.

http://roccolettieri.com/portfolio-item/hamptons/
Default-user

Thank you EugeneO. I will check out those broken images. Is there a way for the portfolio item to start loading before all images are ready? Would that speed up the process? Like making some javascript inline or is that not the issue…???

Thanks again!

EugeneO

That’s not the issue. The preloader hides the screen until the images are fully loaded. This is so visitors do not see the page before horizontal gallery has been created as it would look messy.

That page I linked to in my last reply is more than 15mb in total because of the images. You need to better optimize the images and reduce the total page weight.

Hello, is it possible to have configuration file same like your example and simply to upload on wordpress, I am really lost I don’t know how to add portfolio, I try to read documentation but confusing for me I never used wordpress before.Thanks in advance

EugeneO

There is a xml file in the download that includes the live preview content but without any images. You can use that as a starting point.

Default-user

Thank you very much for fast reply, just how and where to upload, sorry but I am first time wordpres user. Thanks

Great theme. I’m having trouble with the homepage. I’ve attached an image to the page (not inserted in to the post). Selected Fullscreen image but all I get is the spinning wheel.

www.designmap.co.uk/wp

Also there’s no settings within the login that allows me to specifically create a slideshow (i.e. plugin) but I assume that happens when you create a gallery by default?

I’m basically trying to create a homepage like your online example.

can you see what I’ve done wrong?

thanks

EugeneO

I think the page is failing to load because you need more than one image in the slideshow. Try attaching another image to the page.

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply. I’ve just recreated the page and attached 3 images but with no luck?

Default-user

looking at the source at the bottom there doesn’t appear to be any javascript calls for the backstretch or CDATA for the slide show on mine where there is on yours. theme upload issue?

EugeneO

I thought attaching an another image would fix that error but evidently not. I’ll look into it.

EugeneO

Have you changed the template file name?

Default-user

Nope. just uploaded as it is. activated the child theme but not made any changes to it.

EugeneO

The javascript for that template which creates the background slide show is not being loaded. The most obvious reason for that would be because the template had been renamed.

You also have an unusual body class (“page-template-sideways2page-fullscreen-image-php”) which is different from what I am seeing on the live preview of the theme. That should be two separate classes (“page-template” and “page-fullscreen-image-php”)

Default-user

I haven’t renamed the template the one in the folder on the server is page-fullscreen-image.php. Yep I also noticed the strange body class, any idea how to sort that out?

EugeneO

How did you fix it?

Default-user

ahaa just found out…the files downloaded from theme forest contained the sideways2 folder for upload (which was uploaded and all fine) BUT what I didn’t notice is it contained the same entire theme folder (sideways2) within it. Once I deleted this from the server and selected full screen template it was fine. obviously confused and trying to target js from an extra folder down.

EugeneO

You would be surprised how often that happens. I’m glad you got it sorted and your site look like it’s coming along well.

Default-user

many thanks for your support on the issue….the theme is working very nicely for us

I’d like to know if the drop down main menu can be given a transparency w/ CSS so that I can still see gallery/images through it?

I really like having a ‘static menu’ and would love to have a left justified menu instead of the drop down. I feel like I read in the comments that the menu is built to be drop down but wanted to be sure.

EugeneO

I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t use an rgba value for the background-colour of the navigation menu to adjust the transparency.

I don’t know how you would make the menu static as the theme clearly wasn’t designed for a static menu.

Default-user

I meant fixed instead of static. My bad. I think you answered my question though. a fixed width/justified left/transparent menu. thanks

Hi Eugene,

Hope you are well… It seems like there is some problem when using Links for Menu. Go to http://www.ringmasters.cc/ and click Praxis. it loops within the website but it should take it to http://praxis.ringmasters.cc

Would you let me know what’s causing this?

EugeneO

The theme does not interfere with the WP Custom menus in any way at all. My guess is it is caused by how you have your domains setup. It looks like when you click the link your server is trying to load this:

http://www.ringmasters.cc/praxis./

instead of:

http://praxis.ringmasters.cc/
EugeneO

I’ve tested this locally using Sideways 2 and on the live preview of Sideways 2 and in both cases the link works as it should. From that I would believe the issue is a result of how you have your WordPress sites setup or your server configuration.

EugeneO

One thing you could try is using a redirect plugin for WordPress. Create a praxis page on your main site (http://www.ringmasters.cc/praxis/) and then redirect it to http://praxis.ringmasters.cc/ using the plugin.

rpomusic

ok. Thanks for the info, I will look into the problem a little deeper.

hi, i need to change the value of resolution that change the view from 768px to 769px. my question is – which file i have to modify to change the values in widow of width 768px from

div id=”navigation” class=”mCustomScrollbar _mCS_x” & div id=”horizontal-scroll” class=”mCustomScrollbar _mCS_x”

to

div id=”navigation” class=”mCS_destroyed” & div id=”horizontal-scroll” class=”mCS_destroyed”

regards

EugeneO

You will need to edit the width values in responsive.css and jquery.custom.js (the uncompressed version is in the development folder in the main download zip file) you download from ThemeForest.

Hi, If I purchased the theme would I then be able to hire you to customise it to have a fixed left menu instead of the drop down menu for the desktop view?

EugeneO

I do not undertake any freelance work.

Hi again E.

If I wanted to change the ‘loading’ animation, where and how would I do that?

EugeneO

You have to use CSS to replace the ajax-loader.gif.

hello again

theme’s working great! http://www.designmap.co.uk just wondering if there is (or is likely to be) a way of navigating through a set of portfolio images using back and forward arrows. Same sort of buttons as the arrow left and right scroll buttons but instead of scrolling a single click slides the gallery smoothly to the next image and so on?

thanks Martin

EugeneO

There are no plans for that.

Hello EugeneO! Hope all is well.

Do you have any tips on getting the favicon to show up in the browser bars? I loaded up an .ico file in Theme Options/Appearance Settings. It was working, but is not working any longer. http://www.roccolettieri.com. Would love any ideas and help that you can provide. Thank you!

Jessica

EugeneO

Try changing the file name to something else (e.g. “rl-icon.ico”) and re-uploading the image to the favicon option on the theme options screen.

Default-user

OK. I will thank you.

Default-user

I just changed it to rl-favicon.ico and uploaded into the theme options/appearance settings area. But I don’t see it yet.

EugeneO

Try changing it to a PNG file and uploading that. I’ve tested your site in a most browsers and it’s only Chrome that isn’t showing it. Maybe Chrome has an issue with the file type.

Default-user

Just tried it with a .png file. Not working yet… rl-icon1.png

Default-user

thanks. Just got your message. I am in safari and not seeing the png file. I will check it out in different browsers. Glad you are seeing something! I will also look into the Chrome issue. Thanks again.

EugeneO
Here’s a PNG version to try: http://oi61.tinypic.com/35n2fep.jpg

I’m seeing your png in all browsers excerpt Chrome, same as with the original .ico version.

Hi there, I’m an owner of the original Sideways theme. Is there much of a difference between the two themes? Is the old version 3.9 compatible? How easy is it to upgrade an existing site from the old template to the new one? Do I need to reformat all the imagery to fit the new template?

EugeneO

Sideways 1 and 2 are not compatible with each other. Although they share similar design elements they have completely different code.

If you switch to Sideways 2 you will have to recreate your site, however Sideways 2 is much easier to use compared to the original Sideways theme so setting up your site won’t take as long.

If you already have a full screen size version of your images images that are optimized so that their file sizes are small then you can use those images. The theme will generate all the other smaller image sizes needed but the version you upload absolutely must be optimized to a manageable file size. I would recommend no larger than 500kb and preferably much smaller than that but I realize it won’t always be possible to get the file size as small as that.

Default-user

Brilliant. Thanks for the info.

Hi EugeneO.

I installed WP Super Cache and it breaks this theme. Do you know of any caching plugins that are compatible with the theme? Thanks for your help!

Jessica

EugeneO

Caching with the theme should not cause any problems. Compressing the JavaScript can cause problems so I would advise against it. There isn’t any reason to minify the theme JS as it’s all already compressed.
