Hello, I have a pre-purchase question. Can you set the website to load full screen without the left bar showing on home page or get rid of the left bar entirely?

Website looks very nice.

fireform

Hello!
Thanks!
Unfortunately, it’s unavailable out of the box and not easy to change it. Of course, if you have large experience in php/css/js you can try, but I can’t predict a result.

How do I get rid of the overlay on the homepage slider? Kyle

Default-user

I have found this but I do not know what to put it? .ef-slider-overlay {display:none!important}

fireform

Hello!
You can put it in the root style.css :)

What would be the best solution to turn the blog page into single column? Could you please share a CSS snippet to achieve this?

Thanks, Niko

PS: I have seen your comment over here http://themeforest.net/item/sniper-premium-photography-theme/discussion/3828191?page=3#comment_3184530 but wasn’t sure if it relates 100% and if there is a simple solution available.

Hello!
Please, provide license certificate number via my profile page contact form, because I don’t see “purchaser’s badge”. The blog was designed as grid layout and maybe it can be a problem.

I created a Twitter app, punched in the appropriate keys in Theme Options, but the widget just says “Loading Tweets…” and never does anything. The username is specified as “tf5_bassist” without quotes. Everything looks right, any ideas?

Default-user

Yeah, just tried it again, not firing up. For Username, it should just be my twitter name, like “tf5_bassist” without quotes, not ”@tf5_bassist” or “http://www.twitter.com/tf5_bassist”, correct? I have it set to just the username itself right now.

fireform

Hi!
Sounds strange. Look on the screenshot http://cloud.evgenyfireform.com/image/0C3w3u3C232k
Of course all fields from “Twitter App Consumer Key” to “Twitter App Access Token Secret” should be filled. Please, re-check these fields. Also I can take a look if you provide your WP credentials via my profile page contact form.

Evgeny

Default-user

Yeah, they’re all filled out. I’ve generated two different sets, no such luck either time. I reactivated the username/password I gave you last time, I’ll reply to the emails from our last exchange regarding the missing Theme Options menu item.

Hey,

i have a pre-purchase question, too. Is it possible to integrate a shop tool based on the portfolio site of the sniper theme? I would love to use the theme for the website of my brand, everything fits perfectly, but i need a shop too and that is the only thing missing…

Thanks for helping me out. Max

fireform

Hello!
Thanks for interest! I think that it could be a problem, because our theme isn’t optimized for WooCommerce or any other shopping scripts, so I can’t suggest any solutions for this.

Hi,

Website for the client is ready and installed. http://www.margaretlansink.nl/portfolio/ Portfolio is not showing on iPad/iPhone.. (not working for link/lightbox/both).

Can you fix it?

Hello!
It shows portfolio at small resolutions in our demo. Have you modified any files in the theme? Still nobody mentioned about such problem. Send details via my profile page contact form.

Hello.. First of all I like the theme very much and we managed to create my new site the way I want it, I think;)... But…yesterday I discovered on my iPad and iPhone that I don’t see a photograph in my Portfolio. And later on all of a sudden on the laptop and iMac all Portfoliopages exists out of 2 pages. The second page doesn’t exitst though, what means that some pictures are not shown anymore. Can you please help me? Thank you very much!! www.margaretlansink.com

Hello, Margaret!

Hi, I need little help… How I can setting the portfolio post image for portrait format. Theme cropping best only landscape image… I saw, in older posts, you responded to someone else with the same issue, but I’m unable to set Init.php file.

If you prefer could contact me at andrea@lelecorni.com

Thank You

fireform

Hi!
You can change resolution in init.php, but then you need to re-upload all images (it’s really jogtrot thing) so I can suggest to use Force Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to do this job.

Hello! In “Contact”, I would like to eliminate the item “website” and add “phone number”. I’ve already tried changing the names, however this field doesn’t accept only number or special symbols/characters.

Thanks!

fireform

Hello!
It’s hard to change this field to phone number, because there is validation function working with urls only. I can suggest famous “Contact Form 7” plugin (our theme was specially styled for it), but the theme should be in “non-ajax” mode. Ajax pagination is accepted.

Regards,
Evgeny

Hi Fireform!,

I like the theme a lot. I have a couple of questions for you.

1) I´m having an issue when working with the portfolio. When I enter in a portfolio item, the portrait images are cropped in the main slider and the thumbnails. I saw someone having the same issue but I don´t know if the solutions given are for previous versions of the theme and if it was solved with the last version. I have a screen-capture I can send you if you need it.

2) There is a button in the slides of the main portfolio page but I saw some users of the theme that were able to remove it and use the image as active button. ¿How can I do that?

Merci

fireform

Hi!
1) It’s not a bug and it shouldn’t be fixed in the future :) Cropping is applied for best alignment. You can edit cropping settings here: sniper/functions/apperance/init.php, line #30 (for single blog/portfolio post). Then you need to re-upload all images or use this plugin Force Regenerate Thumbnails.
2) Are you talking about 2 buttons in the right corner of the homepage? If yes, see a screenshot http://cloud.evgenyfireform.com/image/1o1D1Q2G2o3i

Evgeny

Default-user

Hi Evgeny, thanks for your fast answer.

1) Solved. Thanks

2) What I mean is that, when visiting the portfolio of the published website, there are two buttons at the bottom of each image that is shown when you do a “on mouse over”: one with a magnified lens and other with three stripes. I saw that some user of the theme were able removed them and use the actual photo as a button (e.g.: http://www.margaretlansink.nl/portfolio/). How can I do that?

Hi! Great job!

Any ideas on multilingual? I have tried a qTranslate and Wpml (not latest one) and it didnt work.

fireform

Hi! Thanks!
Yes, you can use qTranslate, but the theme should be in “non-ajax” mode as I remember. You can send your questions via my profile page contact form.

Dear Evgeny,

I purchased your beatiful theme earlier this year, but had problems installing it. Now I gave it to an web engeneer, and here come my ( his ) question: We would like to make a multilingual website, with flags to choose language on the openening page. He said, that a plugin might be too ‘instable’ and suggested to purchase the theme with a mulitlingual option ( if available). What would be your advice ? Thanks so much for your help

Tania

fireform

Hello!
You can use qTranslate or WPML. Your developer can add lang switcher to the top of the site with “position: fixed” and stylize like you need. Note, that both plugins uses some javascript so you need to use Sniper in “non-ajax” mode (you can disable in Theme Options). qTranslate is free and has some small problems with shortcodes so I can suggest to use WPML. Anyway you can use purchased WPML plugin with any theme. So I recommend it :)

Evgeny

Hello!
1. I can’t see your “Purchased” badge.
2. I’m not responsible for customizations. Use Firebug to catch js errors. Make sure that you code reinits after each ajax request.

Hi, I noticed that on your about page you inserted a photograph and also some small icons. When I try to do this, my images all have dropshadows. How do I get it like you have it?

Also, how did you make the “why” list with stars?

Thanks

fireform

Hello!
It was created using simple html structure and image is added by Wordpress media uploader. Here an example:

<div class="serv"><img class="size-full wp-image-601 alignleft" alt="rocket" src="http://themes.evgenyfireform.com/wp-sniper/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/rocket.png" width="32" height="51" />[h4]Features.[/h4][hs]A short review of theme features[/hs]</div>

In other words, wrap image and header shortcodes in

<div class="serv" />

Hi,

I have an issue with the jpeg images when seen at the portfolio: the quality is very poor. It seems to be an excess of compression. At the begining I thought it was because of the Wordpress compression when uploading images. You can see a couple of examples at:

http://armandkuka.com/?portfolio=pruebas

There you can see first the JPEG image followed by the same one in PNG format that show the original quality of the JPEG file in my computer.

In order to solve it, I tried two methods:

1.- Adding two lines of code to avoid compression

/* Kuk / add_filter(‘jpeg_quality’, function($arg){return 100;}); add_filter( ‘wp_editor_set_quality’, function($arg){return 100;} );

so the theme´s “functions.php” looked like this: +++++++++++++++++ <?php

//Textdomain define(‘SG_TDN’, ‘sniper’);

//Add features or post thumbnail sizes here

/ Kuk / add_filter(‘jpeg_quality’, function($arg){return 100;}); add_filter( ‘wp_editor_set_quality’, function($arg){return 100;} );

function sg_user_theme_setup() { / Add theme-supported features. / / add_theme_support(’’); /

/ Add images sizes /
/ Please use 'cm_' prefix to name /
/ add_image_size('cm_myimage', 100, 100, true); */

}

//Theme Setup require_once get_template_directory() . ’/functions/init.php’; +++++++++++++++++

2.- Using the plugin: “WP Resized Image Quality”.

In both cases the results were not successful and I´m wondering if there is something related to the theme that have to do with it.

If not, what would you do in my situation in order to see the images with the same quality shown in the Sniper theme preview?

Thanks in advance for your help on this… AND HAPPY 14!!

Default-user

You are not late Evgeny. Actually, I´m back to work after a trip, so no problemo.

You are right, the theme have nothing to do with bad image quality. Other site I have been working on using a different theme have the same issue. The reason seems to be a re-compression that Wordpress do when uploading JPEG images.

Well it´s funny because for a number of days and for no clear reason, the quality of tyne JPEGs and PNGs surprisingly was the same: PERFECT. Probably you saw the images during that time but after deleting some files and uploading some others: suddenly disaster :) the compression artifacts appear again. I uploaded some more images here for you to see:

http://armandkuka.com/?portfolio=pruebas

If you, or any one know how to solve it, any help will be welcome.

Thanks for your answers and your amiability.

Default-user

UPDATE Just for you to know, in case this happens to other user. When working in the studio, I use a Mac Thunderbolt Display. When I work (or see) the portfolio in that monitor, is when the compression artifacts appear in the images; and those images a are also stored in the cache of my Mac Book Pro. That´s why the images were damaged also when I see them in my laptop screen, while you see no differences between JPEG and PNG. If I delete the cache, everything OK in the little screen.

What I have to find out is how to avoid the bad quality of JPEGS when seen in big monitors.

…my the the Force be with me.

Glad that you figured it out :) Thanks for deep researches!

Hi there,

I am currently using version 1.1 which is live. I would like to update the theme to the new version. How do I do that, without losing any of the data I added in the past? Because I don’t see an update option in the wp dashboard for the Sniper Theme

Thanks!

Regards, Matt

fireform

Hi, Matt!
You can rename new theme to “sniper2” for example, upload to wp-content/themes and then activate it. It’s simple as is :)

Hi Evgeny,

Hello,

I purchased it, and I have a question. I want my portfolio to show all the pictures in the same page. I don’t want to have a slider for every portfolio. Is it possible? How can I do it?

Thank you

Default-user

I mean I want to change how items are displayed in a portfolio page. I don’t want a slider but I would like to see all the images in the same page and scroll. Is it possible? Thank you

fireform

Hello!
Sorry for late reply.
You can control number of images with “Portfolio settings” > “Projects count”. See on the screenshot http://cloud.evgenyfireform.com/image/462u271X002E
And to disable link to single post http://cloud.evgenyfireform.com/image/2L2D1N2F0b3M
Also you can check documentation that comes with the theme to learn more :)
