I just brought this theme however I cannot get the extracts of the post to show up on the home (blog) page on a mobile. I’ve tried using plugins and the more tag but to no avail. Any help would be great…

Hi, Why have you not included an option page to easily edit this theme? – logo, colours etc.. it looks like I have to go into the code to edit the theme. where do I add a logo? Regards

BonfireThemes

Hey David. We simply decided not to build an admin panel, and I think the price reflects it :) Other features like webapp and localization took priority.

That said, you can still easily change colors with plugins like Color Manager though. Email me what you want changed and I’ll gladly send you the CSS Selectors.

As for the logo, let me just put on my morning brew and I’ll send quick instructions on that right over :)

Cheers.

BonfireThemes

Aaaaand sent. Now just email me the coloring details and we’ll have that done in a few moments as well.

Hi! I purchased the theme and started working with it but I need some help with an issue. On it’s own, it works as advertised…

I am using the theme and my site as a place for me to make a custom link for each of my photography clients as a place for me to give them a mobile gallery.

The problem that I have with that is I have a few too many steps in order to get the images in a blog post.

I normally use NextGen Gallery and I export right from Lightroom into a NextGen Gallery…. If I use the twenty twelve theme and the NextGen Gallery, all is fine…. when I activate this theme, it stops working.

I want to be able to use NextGen AND this theme…. can you lend me a hand?

BonfireThemes

Send me an email through my TF profile and I’ll have a look, sure.

Just checking if you got my emails? Yours went to my spam folder initially for some reason. Let me know, cheers.

Just wanted to drop in a quick comment saying that I’ve never had a customer service experience as great as I had with Bonfire Themes’ Rain. He took the time to help me with problems ranging from simple to complex. He even gave me a whole new section of code when I asked about a possible feature! Many thanks, you’re support was more appreciated than I can express!

Hi,

2 questions for techin5.com.

1 – How do I implement Google adsense into the theme? I’m losing a fair bit of clicks by not having this in.

2 – Menu system for Spartan. I’ve currently got a desktop theme with it’s own menu setup (drop down menus with images and all). How do I transfer the same menu system to work with spartan? Or even make a new set of menu systems.

Any help would be fantastic cheers

BonfireThemes

Hey there. Answers below.

1) Specific AdSense spots aren’t in the theme, but you can always hardcode them into the spots you’d like or have someone do it for a few dollars. It’s just a matter of copy-paste for anyone familiar with WordPress.

2) Transferring a completely different menu system from one theme to another is a rather meaty amount of work and falls well outside the bounds of support, so can’t help there I’m afraid. But to set up a mobile-only menu using Spartan’s own menu system, check the documentation under ”..menu not showing up?”

Cheers.

Hm thanks but some more -, with number 1), Long shot but know anyone who CAN help? :)

and as for 2) I have a little confusion with this ‘If you’re using the static front page also, repeat the process but instead of editing header.php, edit header-static-front.php’

What am I using?

BonfireThemes

1) Shoot me an email through my TF profile, I have someone who may be interested. But you can find sites where people do quick WP jobs as well. There was a particular site that did just that, but I can’t seem to recall the name :( Try searching on Google.

2) If you don’t know, then you haven’t set up a static front page :) Edit header.php as instructed in the doc.

1) Will do either way

2) Does a Static Home Page HAVE to be set up if I’m using a desktop theme? I installed this months ago but have forgotten what work I did on the theme at the beginning

Oops, I found another issue.

Once the menu is showing up, if I use my phone to click on a menu, say Apps, then the Apps page opens up. However, Rather than the latest posts on that category coming up – The ENTIRE post opens up rather than just the snippet. How do I make it do that like the home page?

BonfireThemes

Shoot me an email so I can give you the guy’s email.

A static front page is optional.

And if you’re saying you’d like to show excerpts instead of a full post on the blog index, category pages etc (a preference rather than an issue :) ), then that’s just a quick change. I’ll guide you through it once you send me the email.

Answering a few quick questions in the comments here is fine, but we really offer support via email. Let’s not turn this area into a support forum :)

Hi,

Purchased the theme and installed.

Questions: 1. This theme is setup as a mobile only theme. So how do I select a page with the “Main Menu Only” template as its not the active theme.

2. Is there an option to include the menu in the homepage?

Thanks,

BonfireThemes

Hey sunkur, cheers for the purchase.

Since the menu-only front page would require a setting up a static front page, then that indeed will only work if you have the mobile site activated, aka running on a separate installation. That’s just how WordPress works I’m afraid.

You can however set up different static front pages for your desktop and mobile themes on the same installation if you make slight changes to both themes. I haven’t tried it myself and so can’t provide support for that, but I’ve been told on several occasions by buyers that the trick described here works beautifully: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/setting-different-static-home-pages-for-different-themes

I don’t quite follow on the second question though.. If you’re asking how to set up the main menu, then check the doc under “menu not showing up?”

Cheers.

Hi, i have some quistion before buying the theme. 1. Does it display’s images uploaded with the posts when i just ad them with “highlighted images”? The theme i’m using works this way 2. Can i ad adsense codes, even when there not from google? 3. Is it possible to display the posts on the first page instead of the menu?

Thnaks, it looks realy nice and i hope it’s possible.

Gr

BonfireThemes

Hey there, thanks for the interest.

1) I’m not aware how your theme handles images; sounds like a custom solution. Spartan uses WordPress’ own image uploader.

2) If you know how then nothing in the theme prevents you from injecting AdSense, or any other ad code for that matter.

3) That’s the default way actually. Setting up the menu on the front page would require an extra step.

Cheers.

Hi,

Is it possible ta add a sub-submenu , in other words a submenu within the submenu. similar to the wordpress menu configuration with multiple levels in the backend..

- How can I remove the small “twist” that an gallery/portfolio image makes on rollover

Tnx

Best,

One other question: I think I use portfolio setup instead of working with sub-submenu. How can I ad a back button within portfolio item pages?. a general back button somewere within the theme would also be great _( im still using 1.3 do i have/need to update.)?

best!

BonfireThemes

Hi there.

Spartan has a 2-level menu.

For the image hover twist, shoot me an email through the contact form on my profile and I’ll guide you through it. It’s super simple to remove.

As for the back button, this would have to be paid custom work.

And you can update if you want. You can see the changelog at the bottom of the item description page.

Cheers.
