Great theme, instant purchase! I have a couple of questions though:

1. Is there any way to make all the thumbnails and images in the portfolio automatically resize to a certain width and height? 2. Is there an easy way to make a second or third filter for the portfolio, based on the date or a subcategory? (i saw someone else asked this question 4 days ago, if you answer him i would read it to!)

Thanks for the great theme sir!

Greetings, Ruurd

Hi,

- Theme cropped images automatically ( Images uploaded after activating the theme ) .. if you want to re-size the old images .. use this plugin to regenerate Thumbnails with suitable sizes http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

- There are no automatic option to do this .. so you need to make a modification on the theme files to do this … This type of customization is a bit more complex and is not covered under normal theme support. If you’re interested in hiring a developer to do it for you, we highly recommend to check out: http://www.wpquestions.com

Hi,

this theme, support the translation? I can use plugin like qTranslate?

I can use site title and tagline, instead of the logo?

Thanks.

TieLabs

Hi,

Theme comes with po/mo translate files .. but I didn’t test it with qTranslate so I can’t guarantee on it

- yes You can use site title and tagline

I have placed a Sokar-Twitter widget into the slide-out widget area and was wondering how I could set the @Follow Me link to open in a new tab?

Could you please let me know where I can add target="_blank" to this: <a href="http://twitter.com/lifeidiom">@Follow Me</a>

Thanks

TieLabs

Hi,

you can add it in includes/widgets/widget-twitter.php

Awesome. For others needing to do this, on around line 25 in widget-twitter.php add target="_blank" just after the a tag;
    if ( $title )
        echo $before_title; ?>
        <a target="_blank" href="http://twitter.com/<?php echo $accounts ?>"><?php echo $title ; ?></a>
        <?php echo $after_title; ?>

Hi! How can I make the portfolio itens appear in a random order in my entry page? Is there a way? Thank you so much! Maria.

TieLabs

Hi,

There are no automatic option to do that so you need to edit theme files and make changes on the php query

When adding/creating a gallery in the “add media” panel that is then added to a ‘page’, is there a way to have the images in that gallery display in the uploaded aspect ratio? Or when you click on the images, can it display in a pop-up gallery similar to the Sokar gallery rather than lead you to a page with the image on it?

TieLabs

Hi,

Sorry, I am not sure I understand you correctly, could you send me some screenshots with description please?

We figured it out – you can set the thumbnail size and aspect ratio under Settings > Media by unchecking the “crop thumbnail to exact dimensions”

My continued use of this theme affirms my initial thoughts that this a great theme…lot’s of control via Sokar theme settings area of the dash. Bravo!!!

Couple of questions though…

1. Is there a way to turn off the comments on pages only, leaving them available on posts?

2. I previously asked you if there was a way to remove the default excerpts setting on the main blog page and you provided me with with the code to make that adjustment…thank you! However, I’d like to keep the excerpts when someone requests Index and Archives displays. Is that possible?

Hi Mo3aser,

Loving the theme more than ever! Question: Is there a way to configure or disable the previous and next arrows on the portfolio page? It seems to go to next or previous by date posted and I have portfolios set up on different pages which may be confusing to users. Please advise! Thanks. – PK

TieLabs

Hi,

thanks for your nice words .. you need to edit portfolio.php and single-portfolio.php to remove it

Hey Mo3aser,

There is an issue with playing audio posts directly from the Blog Masonry Layout page on smart devices. The first time the page loads, the audio plays fine. If you navigate away from the page and then back to the Blog Masonry Layout page, the audio doesn’t load and will not play. If you quit the browser and relaunch the same thing occurs. I have tested this on my site and your demo site on both iPhone 4 (Safari) and iPad (Safari & Chrome) and I get the same results.

The normal blog layout is fine so it must be the way the masonry blog page loads on consecutive page loads.

I would like to emphasise the importance of this feature for my site and would appreciate any help you can offer to fix this bug.

Regards Dean

Hello there,

Congratulations on a great theme, I’m thinking in buying it, but I need to know if I can have the blog posts sorted / filtered / categorized somehow ( maybe like the filter you have on portfolio items? )

Can I have any widgets listing the blog categories ? if so, how can I display them on the blog page?

Thank you!

Hi,

sorry it doesn’t support that

Hi !

When scroling a page can i make that the right sidebar moves down wile a scroll ?

TieLabs

Hi,

Unfortunately, this is a change you would have to make on your own as it is not an automatic feature of the theme.

On the posts with right sidebar, can the right sidebar fit a 300×250 ad?

Hi, I want to know if your template sokar is compatible with IE8, I saw in my computer but the template is not really like ie9 or firefox. Thanks Yoni

TieLabs

Hi,

IE8 Doesn’t support all features of CSS3.0 so the theme will not appears 100% like it on ie9 , firefox or chrome

Hey Mo3aser,

Several more questions for you!

-Why does the lightbox only appear for the featured image in the portfolio and nowhere else? -The right click protection works unless the user opens the lightbox and then they can right click and download. Can this be prevented? -In the portfolio or blog post, if I click on a non-featured image it goes to a separate web page outside of the theme and users can right click and download the image. Can this be prevented? -Why are the non-featured images in the blog post so small (especially horizontal ones)? How can I have them sized the same as the featured image? I know these are a lot of questions, please advise! Thank you. -PK P.S. Still loving the theme!

TieLabs

Hi,

1- You can use lightbox in posts content by using lightbox shortcode

2- I will try to improve it in next versions

3- Sorry it is not available

4- If you mean the images in the post content area .. you can choose the width of it when you add it

Hey Mo3aser, thanks for responding. Regarding Question 4: The featured image displays at 1024, but the subsequent images in the post display smaller even when I select 1024. Thoughts?

Hey Mo3aser! I’ve been playing with it – the post seems to resize horizontal images down from 1024 wide to 600 wide. Thoughts?

TieLabs

Please provide URL of your site to check the problem

TieLabs

I checked your page and it appears in full width mode .. and it uses the original image path http://www.pk-images.com.php53-2.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/pennywisemusink2013-2.jpg

Hey Mo3aser, correct, that is the featured image, which looks fine – but if you look at the bottom image on the page it is reduced to 600. Is that just a theme default?

TieLabs

Hi,

wordpress set a max width for the images with caption ..

to set the max-width to be 100% of the post container add this code to custom css area in Tiepanel > Styling
.wp-caption {max-width: 100% !important;}

Beautiful! That works for the blog posts, but not the portfolio pages – is that a different config? Check this link to see what I am saying: http://www.pk-images.com.php53-2.ord1-1.websitetestlink.com/?portfolio=against-me

TieLabs
as I see it works fine for portfolio pages too .. if you mean it not expand to fill the space under “client and year ” .. it uses two columns if you want it to fill this space you will need to display it under the “client and year ” .. use this code
.portflio-entry {padding-right: 0; clear: both;}

We had a problem with the theme yesterday. For some unknown reason, or a reason I cannot figure out, the Sokar theme setting we had originally changed, went back to default on our live website, including logo, social icons, links, menu style and colors.

1. What could have caused this to happen? 2. Is there a file that can be backed up or copied so that we can save our settings in case this happens again? 3. How can this be prevent this from happening again?

TieLabs

Hi,

1- I think you Reset the theme settings by mistake .

2- You can copy the code in Export input field in Advanced settings tab and save it to use it later by paste it in import input field and click save

Just bought the theme. Is there a way to do all the settings on a development site and then copy them over to my active site when I install the theme? Is there an export and import settings feature?

TieLabs

Hi,

Yes there area Export / import feature .. you can find it under advanced tab in Tiepanel

Also, how do you batch upload images to a gallery?

It looks like you have to click Use This Image one at a time.

TieLabs

In current version you can upload one image per time

Default-user

That is a HUGE issue. I don’t have the time to sit there and make 3 clicks and wait multiple times to upload one image. This will prevent me from being able to install this theme until you can create batch uploading of images.

TieLabs

Hi,

just update to version 1.4.0 which released today .. it supports multiple images selection .

Thank you! It’s great that you listen to customer concerns and address them! Great theme.

Hello again, for some reason whenever i do a post with a featured image, the image looses resolution. But when u open the post and see the image within it, it goes back to the normal resolution. Is there anyway to change this?

TieLabs

Hi,

Please provide URL of your site to check the problem

TieLabs

Hi,

in the the post page it uses the original image .. to use it in the archives pages too ..

edit content-standard.php and search for
<div class="post-media standard-img">
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php printf( esc_attr__( 'Permalink to %s', 'tie' ), the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) ); ?>"><?php tie_thumb( tie_post_width() ); ?></a>
</div>

and replace it with

<div class="post-media standard-img">
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php printf( esc_attr__( 'Permalink to %s', 'tie' ), the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) ); ?>">
    <?php 
        $image_id = get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID);  
        $image_url = wp_get_attachment_image($image_id, 'full' , false, array( 'alt'   => get_the_title() ,'title' =>  ''  ));  
        echo $image_url;
       ?>
    </a>
</div>
