Hello, I need to do a video gallery with videos uploaded within WP (no youtube or vimeo). Is possible to do this? Thanks

EugeneO

You can embed a video on to a page which will play in using the media player built into WordPress but it is not possible to use the built in player in the portfolio as the theme was built before the media player was added to WordPress.

Hi! I’m a very satisfied user of your template (here the link www.studiorocci.it) . (you don’t see me as purchaser because I’m just the new admin) I have an issue with the Sideways Raw Options panel which is not visible anymore in the Admin Dashboard (WordPress 3.6). No appearance settings can be changed if I can’t have access to those options… Any ideas? :confusedsad:

thank you!

Your account on your WordPress installation does not have a high enough role. You need to be set as “Administrator”. It’s the same reason you can’t see the “Users”, “Plugins” and “Settings” links in the sidebar.

all clear, thank you very much!

Hi EugeneO, did some searching through the Comments and couldn’t find an answer, hopefully this is not something you’ve addressed before.

I’ve noticed the page title as displayed on my browser tab appends the site name (as set on the General tab of WP Settings) to the end. I’m also using Yoast SEO to set default title templates…currently using %title % | %sitename % for pages.

I know I can remove %sitename % but I don’t want to resolve the issue this way. Rather, I’d prefer to figure out why/how the site name is automatically getting appended to the end of the page title, and stop it, so that I can just use variables in Yoast SEO to set the titles.

I assumed it was just an issue with Yoast SEO but my searching online indicates that it’s most likely something that the theme is doing…automatically appending the site title to the end of the page title. So, that’s led me here to you…is it true that it’s something the theme itself is doing? If so, how do I stop this behavior?

Thanks in advance.

PS: Different subject, I understand that you’re not developing Sideways anymore…from a strategic/supportability perspective this is perfectly understandable. But, while I’d be happy to use Sideways 2, so that I could move up to WP 3.8 and otherwise keep things up-to-date, it looks/feels so different to me. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just a completely different feel. Maybe I’ve overestimated how hard it would be to use Sideways 2 yet set it up for the similar feel I already have? Would like your thoughts on this as I’m surely not the only one that feels a bit stuck in the middle.

EugeneO

To change the site title you will need to go into header.php and header-horizontal.php and change the title attribute to just this:

<title><?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?></title>

Sideways 2 is 100 times easier to use than the original Sideways theme because it sticks much closer to WordPress standards. Unfortunately because of how the original Sideways was coded any portfolio content (portfolio items and portfolio categories) would not be compatible with Sideways 2, however, it is much simpler to create your site in the new theme.

My advice would be that you should change from Sideways to another theme as Sideways is now outdated both in terms of look (unless you have customized it) and features. If you like the design of Sideways 2 then I think it would be a good theme to switch to.

Awesome, thanks. That works perfectly.

I don’t use the template as a Portfolio so compatibility with the new theme isn’t important. I have customized Sideways a bit and think it looks great for my needs…my primary concern is supportability, since I can no longer update WordPress (and have all WP elements work properly).

But, as I said I do understand needing to move on, so it’s not a big deal…it just means in another year or so I’ll need to re-code the site in a new template. By then I’ll probably be ready for a visual/layout change anyway, so it’s inevitable one way or the other. I haven’t taken a close look at Sideways 2 yet but will if/when the time comes.

Hi EugeneO and thanks for a great theme. Have been using it for 3 years I think. I recently decided to change the image height from 540 to 755px, and also realizing that smaller screens would suffer big time…

So I’m wondering if I can make images in the horizontal portfolio adapt to smaller screen sizes (with x755px being the 100 %). Can the images in my portfolio be responsive to screen size? See here – http://www.alexandermahmoud.se/portratt-2/

The theme is very old and was developed before responsive web design came about To make it responsive would take a lot of work. I would recommend moving onto a newer theme.
