I can’t see anything strange on our demo website. Can you send me a screenshot of your issues? And maybe the URL of your website?

You have replaced the menu font with the wider one and now your menu items are “pushing out” the search form. Change the menu font size or remove some unnecessary menu items.

So there must be something wrong with your browser. The demo website looks fine on Firefox, as well as on other browsers (Chrome, Safari, Opera, IE7 +) and there is nothing wrong with the menu font.

On our demo website we are using the Arial Narrow font for menu items. Maybe you don’t have this font installed on your computer and Firefox pick some wider font as a replacement. My advice is to change the font for menu items or (as I said before) remove some unnecessary menu items.

I can’t figure out how to use the column shortcodes. Where exactly do I install them so that the front page of my blog can be multiple colums?

Also is there a way to make the top slider just take up 2/3 of the page so something else can go next to it?

e404

Column shortcodes are made for splitting a page or post content into columns – you can see some examples here. You can’t use them to change a blog page template.

There is no easy way to change the slider width – it requires some code customization.

What is the css label for the blog post font size so I can make it larger?

e404
e404 Author
This is a standard ‘post’ class, so you can use the following code as an example:
.post p { font-size: 18px; }

Is there a way to make the gallery photos each a link instead of a bigger picture?

If you mean the standard WordPress gallery (http://e404themes.com/spicy/gallery/) then no, it can’t be done.

Of course you can. Just re-download the theme package from ThemeForest (Downloads tab) and follow the upgrade instructions (you can find them in the theme documentation).

Hi, Before I buy your theme…

On your Ice theme and (or) Cold theme, Can I set any of the Portfolio page as the Home page?

Thanks, Peter

Yes, you can set a portfolio page as the home page. It might require some small customizations, but I can help you with that.

First of all, please ask your questions using the account you have used to purchase the theme. Second, ask questions about the Cold theme in the Cold theme comments, not the Spicy theme comments. Thank you.

I’m having a lot of trouble with images. Anything that requires the [image] shortcode keeps failing. I thought I went through the install and configure documentation correctly, but did I miss something?

I’ve even gone as far as copy/paste the code from the sample site to make sure, but even that’s not working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You have installed your website in the “virtual folder” (~bepainfr) and the TimThumb script doesn’t work with virtual folders. When you move to a real domain or folder (for example http://somedomain.com/your-website) everything will work fine.

Default-user

So I tired it on a different server, but I’m still getting the same issue. I thought it was a permissions issue with TimThumb, but that’s not the case either.

it’s now installed at: http://impactmediadesign.com?page_id=17

e404 Author

Did you change the ‘cache’ folder permissions to 755 or 777?

Default-user

Yes cache and lib folder both are set to 777

e404
e404 Author
Could you check it? Because the TimThumb returns the following error on your webserver:
Warning: touch() [function.touch]: Utime failed: Permission denied
Besides, two of your images are external images and the TimThumb doesn’t allow to use external images.

You can also try to empty the ‘cache’ folder.

Love this theme. Thank you!

I’ve got a issue with the background picture that I uploaded. It is not tiling so on my blog page the background image just stops and it looks bad. Is there a way to ‘tile’ the uploaded background image and how can I limit the number of blog posts displayed on the ‘blog’ page?

I appreciate your help!

e404
e404 Author
If you want your background image to be repeated vertically you can add the following code to the Custom CSS box (Theme Options -> Styling Options):
body { background-repeat: repeat-y; }
You can also try to upload the image as a background texture.

To change the number of posts displayed on the blog page go to the Settings -> Reading and change the “Blog pages show at most” value.

Hi e404, been using this theme since I first posted and its an awesome theme.

2 Bugs that I’ve noticed though:

When setting a 50×50 JPG image as a featured image to show up in the recent posts list as a thumbnail, this image is then used as a preview on the excerpt list. When viewing posts in a specific category, these 50×50 images are stretched to 600×600 and look absolutely terrible.

Plus, a category look with the excerpts, I would have expected SOME text to be shown as a quick synposis of the post with a clickable link saying (read more….), not all of the post text.

Heres an example:

http://www.swanseayl.com/?cat=6

Its a brilliant feature and I love having an image on the start of every post, can the code be changed to show another image uploaded to the post!?

The 2nd bug I see, is that a thread of categories threading down to the post is displayed under the scrolling banner.

http://www.swanseayl.com/?p=348

Although this post you see linked here is under the category, ‘devotionals, it says:

Home › Sharing the GOSPEL with others – easy or difficult? › Devotionals › Sharing the GOSPEL with others – easy or difficult?

Surely that would be: Home › Devotionals › Sharing the GOSPEL with others – easy or difficult?

I downloaded this theme 6 months ago and have not applied any new patches since, if that helps. Many thanks for your support so far!

I’m really glad you like this theme. :)

First of your bugs is not a bug. You should upload bigger featured images – thumbnails for the recent posts list will be generated automatically. You should also put a short text in the Excerpt field – otherwise the whole post text is displayed as an excerpt. If you don’t want to do this you can also change the default excerpt length – just edit the ‘functions.php’ file, find the following code:
function e404_excerpt_length($length) {
    return 9999;
}
and replace ‘9999’ with the number of words for excerpts.

The problem with breadcrumb navigation is indeed a bug, but it was fixed some time ago, so you should just update your theme.

Default-user

‘You should upload bigger featured images – thumbnails for the recent posts list will be generated automatically.’

I’m glad to hear that the theme handles auto image resizing, ive been adding 50×50 pixel images as featured images to the post hence this problem. Is there anything in the theme documentation or could you tell me on here, the maximum pixel size of photo that the theme can handle for auto resize!?

And what would happen to the thumbnail if the image uploaded is not square!? i.e rectangular!?

As to the 2nd bug, I’m also glad that your on the ball. Can you list which specific theme files have been changed since version 1.3 (which I currently have installed) to the current version to make this update a bit easier as I have done some other CSS changes in the theme.

Many thanks.

There is no specific image size limit – the TimThumb (a scalling script) has the limit of 10MB, but you can change that. Just use the size you need.

When the image is rectangular it’s cropped.

You can find the full list of changed files in the ‘documentation/changelog.txt’ file.

Default-user

Major thanks, currently sorting all my images now.

Although this isn’t a complaint or a problem as such, I do find that the uploaded 600×600 images that are cropped to 50×50 automatically, either the original picture cropped to 50×50 would be too small to work out what it is, Or to use a basic image for the final 50×50 crop to be of any use, the original 600×600 image would simply be an oversized basic icon with no detail.

It would be good as a future development idea for some sort of script to be written in to have one image as the excerpt image and one for the thumbnail.

Cheers!

Hello! Please let me know how can I fix the background in which CSS ? I’m having trouble solving it here.

How do I translate the Related Posts Popular Posts to the Portuguese? Which file is this information?

How do I translate the buttons below ? Older posts? Which file is this information?

Thanks.

e404
e404 Author

1. And what’s the problem with the background?

2. You can use the ‘title’ param, for example:
[recent_posts title="Your title here"]
[popular_posts title="Your title here"]

3. What buttons do you mean? In general every theme string is translatable and the .po file is included. However I always recommend the CodeStyling Localization plugin, which is a great tool to translate WordPress themes and plugins.

It’s not a problem with the Background, just I need fixed, no-repeat.

If you upload the image as a background image (not a background texture) it won’t be repeated. If you will still have problem with this please send me your website URL .

A couple questions:

1) Which files do I need to replace for the upgrade? With some of my custom CSS , I don’t want to just replace everything.

2) Is there a way I can get the title-box for the [box] shortcode to let me align the title left right or center? I’ve tried a couple things within the shortcode, but haven’t been able to get it yet.

3) Out of curiousity, do you keep all the shortcode the same across your themes?

Thanks again for your help.

e404
e404 Author

1. You can find the changed files list in the ‘documentation/changelog.txt’ file.

2. The [box] shortcode doesn’t have a parameter which allows to change a title align.

3. Most of shortcodes are the same for all our themes, but there is always something new in each theme.

Default-user

I was asking if there was a way to create an alignment option within the [box] shortcode. I’ve tried a few things myself, and can’t quite get it to work.

Question. I love this theme and have it working on a WPML site for Dutch and English as the language.

Is it possible to have the nivo slider work with translations? Currently It displays both English and Dutch slides…

Thanks for the help!

e404
e404 Author

Asfar as I know, WPML is now a commercial plugin and I don’t have it. So the only way I can try to help you is to login to your website and check it out on your end. So I would need the admin panel access and (if you can give it to me) the FTP access.
