Hi SachaG,

Love the theme, thanks very much.

I sent you an email via your profile page regarding issues with adding my logo.

Did you receive it?

Cheers,

Dan.

Hi,

Any ideas on the logo problem?

Plus, if you can point me in the right direction for the background I’d be very grateful.

SachaG

I just checked your site to see what the problem was, but your image is 135×55 to begin with, not 300×121! You need to upload an image at same size as the dimensions you want it to be.

Regarding the background, it’s set in style/style.css

Hi everybody. I got a big problem with this design. I am from denmark and we use æ ø and å and it looks weird on my site. See http://billigmagento.dk

All the words with æ å ø is bold or something like that. HELP :)

SachaG

You should probably change the font to something that supports Danish then. You can use the CSS field of the theme options to add some new font-family definitions.

Hi SachaG,

Quick one for you!

I know the site doesn’t support the new ‘Menus’ feature recently launched in Wordpress 3.0 and that you’ve developed you’re own Navigation Menu system.

My questions to you is, is the new Menu system in Wordpress 3.0 something that could be easily implemented into this theme? Unfortunately I found the themes default menu isn’t flexible enough to do what I want.

Your help and advice is very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance, Pentland

SachaG

I think it wouldn’t be hard. I assume that the new system would use basically the same markup, so you wouldn’t need to change the CSS too much, if at all.

Hi Sacha,

I am currently working on a custom logo for the theme header using illustrator. In the meantime, how I can delete the “silverio” logo in the upper left of the header (so there is only the grey background)?

Thanks again.

Tyler

SachaG

The logo will be replaced if you upload a logo through the theme options page. So I guess you could upload a blank image? Otherwise just hide it with CSS .

Thanks for the advice. Though i cant find the font in the css files?

I went in to the editor and opened Style.css but there is nothing. In which file do i change the font for this theme?

SachaG

You should edit the “style.css” file inside the css/ directory, not the one inside the theme directory (I know, it’s dumb of me to have given them the same name…).

However if you do this your edits will be overwritten when you update the theme. So I suggest you use the theme options field to add css code instead.

Hi Sacha,

I have implemented the WPML (WordPress MultiLanguage) solution in your Silverio, but I miss one thing, and I can’t find out how to change it.

The Slideshow The slideshow at the frontpage works perfect in Danish, but when I try one of the other languages, no slideshow is showing.

I can’t make another category with the same name, of course, wich means it will not work in other languages than danish, so I need to set a category name for every language showing up on the different language frontpages.

It’s not a part of package you have here, I know that, so my question is, where did you set the that “homepage” should be the trigger for the slideshow. I can’t find it anywhere in the code.

Hope you can help :-)

SachaG

Sounds like maybe you need to edit the query_posts() function in index.php(line 12) to include multiple categories?

Thanks a million Sacha,

It was exactly the code I was looking for, so the website can run in 6 different languages :)

Sacha,

Thanks for a great theme, I’m enjoying it immensely. I have a rather elementary question and it’s killing me that I can’t figure it out. How can I exclude the homepage preview image for a portfolio post from the individual project gallery? If possible, I’d also like to disable the automatic scrolling for single project pages.

Any help is much appreciated,

Thank you!

Donny

SachaG

It’s not currently possible, but both features will be added in the theme’s next update. So stay tuned :)

I am trying to add a custom field to a post.. I add the “video_height” to the list with a value.. It shows up on the list, but when I update the post to apply the change, the custom field disappears. I have tried it on Chrome, Firefox and IE all with the same results.

I am trying to put a video into my portfolio but the default height is cutting off the video at the bottom. A post I had made a month ago has this video_height field added to the post and the video shows up perfectly on it’s portfolio page.

SachaG

There is already a video height custom field, you don’t need to create your own.

I am looking right at the custom fields and don’t see that field, unless I am completely missing it :) Here is a screenshot:

SachaG

First of all, please use the theme’s own interface to manage the custom fields, not the default wordpress one.

Also, please make sure you have the most recent version of the theme, as this custom field was added in later versions.

Thanks much

Dear Sacha,Hi again.

You made a great theme and have a great support.

2 elementary questions:

1. Lightbox effect is not working on my portfolio, but I followed your instruction of linking the image to its full-size version at media gallery, but instead is opens the image directly at /wp-content/uploads/2009/07/image.jpg What I am doing wrong?

2. I noticed that in your /Sessions at your Portfolio you have entered text below image using grids.. (http://silverio.sachagreif.com/sessions/)

how did you made this possible, at Excerpt text field? or at the post text field or under which Silverio options panel?

Thanks for your time in advance….and excellent work!

SachaG

1. It’s hard to know for sure, but it sounds like maybe the javascript scripts are not loading. Please make sure the theme is installed in the right directory (themes/silverio/)

2. Please read the documentation, it’s explained (shortcodes and FAQ )

Thanks Sacha, we could make it work out.

We notice a uservoice.php file. How we can use it?

-We currently use uservoice for our customers…

SachaG

That file is just a slide for the homepage slideshow (with a link to Uservoice), you can see it on my demo site.

I have a question about text wrapping. Right now, all my text is aligned in the right-hand margin. In the right-hand margin, I want only the project summary and “key facts” box. The “Background” and “Results” sections should be under the main image. Kind of like the layout here: http://silverio.sachagreif.com/sessions/

This is a link to my portfolio: http://portfolio.metadiscourse.com/?p=10

How do I specify the location for blocks of text?

Thank you for your help.

Best, Travis

Hello

I have one question that is interesting to me. Is it possible to add next and previous buttons on the lightbox.

I have a gallery of pictures and would like for example when someone click a picture and it pops up in the lightbox to have on that picture next and previous buttons so that the user can scroll through the pictures when they are already enlarged.

I hope u understand what I am asking. Ty in advance.

SachaG

Yes it’s possible, but you will need to be familiar with HTML /Javascript and customize the lightbox plugin according to the instructions on the plugin’s website (http://fancybox.net/).

Hi Sacha.

I can’t manage to show homepage featured images linked to different pages, like on this website using silverio : http://www.alchemysocial.com/

Thanks

Actually, I can’t (don’t know how to) display any image linked to a page in the home slider.

SachaG

Sorry, I can only provide support for bugs or specific problems related to the theme. If you have trouble setting things up, I suggest you watch the screencasts I did, it should help you get up to speed.

Hi,

I watched the 2 screencasts regarding homepage setup but none show how to set pages images in the homepage slider.

I tried selecting no category for the slider in the theme option, and images from all post categories showed up.

I also set things up for my pages the same way I did for posts (published page, added image), but images from these pages never show up in the homepage slider. But you say it’s possible, so can you please state how to reach that result?

SachaG

Sorry, I didn’t understand that you were referring to pages in the wordpress sense, rather than just a “web page”. Sadly it’s not possible to use a page for the homepage slideshow out of the box, because Wordpress doesn’t support giving a category to a page.

Sorry about that, and sorry for not understanding your question the first time.

No problem, misunderstandings happen.

I thought this was easily doable. I don’t know what people of uservoice say, but this would be a nice update.

However, if you (or someone esle reading here) happen to have a little time, I’d love to learn about the way to achieve this result, like www.alchemysocial.com did.

Cheers

SachaG

You’re right, it would be a good feature to have. And actually I already looked into it before. The problem is that I couldn’t find a simple way to make it work without reworking the whole homepage slideshow. But I’ll let you know if I make any progress on this.

In the meantime, you might be able to find a wordpress plugin that allow you to redirect specific posts to pages?

Hi Sacha,

One question:

1. This theme is compatible with WP 3 ?

2. Why when upgrade to WP3 we have problems with menu bar that dissapeard and now it says at Silverio options under admin interface:

“Please reload the page to reset the menu.” and shows this error above:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in wp-content/themes/silverio/options/theme-options.php on line 183

How we can reset the theme options to defaults?

Regards,

SachaG

I suggest that you:

1) re-download the theme from here and update to the latest version of the theme. If you don’t want to over-write all the files you can try updating only options/theme-options.php for a start.

2) send me a private message to tell me if it worked, and if not send me a link to your site along with access codes to your wordpress admin.

This theme is fantastic!!!!

I have 2 questions…

1. I wanted to center the navigation if possible. I have had little success changing the css file.

2. I am familiar with cufon, but I am unsure of how you create and then replace the Vegur font with a new custom one.

Keep up the good work and thanks so much in advance!!!

SachaG

1. Horizontal centering is not easy to do in CSS . I can’t really provide support on this, since it’s not part of the features of the theme, sorry.

2. Silverio does not use Cufon, but @font-face. You can check out http://www.fontsquirrel.com/ for @font-face compatible fonts.

Thanks for the quick reply! This has been the best wordpress template to work with! I have one final question. Is there a way to remove the browse projects on the bottom of the portfolio page? I have been trying to remove it in the category_portfolio.php file, but no luck…

SachaG

You’re in the right file. I suggest using Firebug to identify the element that you want to remove, then just comment it out inside category_portfolio.php
