Hey,

great straight theme! Please tell me is it possible to post Soundcloud tracks to posts, so that they appear and can be played on the main blog page?

Thank you and good luck with the sales! Tomi

Hi,

I’ve just tested it and it works favelessly, just copy and past the <iframe..> url that sound cloud generates for you paste it into blog post and you are set up ;)

Hi,

I just bought this theme and I’m running a local server to test it. Everything is going fine, but I’m having troubles with video posts.

I check the option “Video” and try to embed a Vimeo video but it’s not appearing above the title of the post.

Can you help me, please?

Hi just paste there a normal link to the website to your video (www.vimeo.com/15283959)

There are several bugs with this theme. I won’t point out every problem I’ve encountered, but I will say most of these may affect the functionality of the theme.

Here’s one I’ll give you.. The header section doesn’t render correctly after an image slides within the slideshow.

I have to say the flexslider is realy making me mad, it somehow doesn’t want to work on Gingerbread and lower version of android, which is really weird because I haven’t had any problems with it so far. I will try to test it in emulator with older version of the slider.

Hi,

I tried to paste the video URL (http://vimeo.com/22439234) and the video now appears above the title, but it appears below the title, too.

I don’t want it duplicated.

xRicrdx

Hi you can use the [hidestuff]...[/hidedtuff] shortcode for that, i might have forgotten to desceibe it in the documentation so sorry about that

Another one. When I embed a video in the middle of the post, not above the title, the right margin do not exist.

How do I fix it?

For that pls add this to css
 
Iframe {
    margin 0 auto;
    text-align: center;
}

Hi,

The following code didn’t fixed the video problem. Could it be something else?

Iframe {
    margin 0 auto;
    text-align: center;
}
xRicrdx

Hi, sorry about that, I was just on the way to school so it was written on the walk from my head, but haven’t had a time to test it out ;)

iframe {
    margin: 0 auto;
    text-align: center;
    max-width: 100%;
    height: auto;
}

This code will work, once again sorry about that.

No worries, xRicrdx. I’ll try this code tonight and let’s see if works.

By the way, do you know if there is any way to remove the left/right padding just for videos and images? The text would be normal, but the videos/images go “full-width”, just like when it appears before the title.

I tried a few changes in CSS , but no success untill now.

Cheers.

xRicrdx

Well I have to say that’s good idea ;) however, it would need html editing because they are wrapped into div with padding, but that shouldn’t be to much trouble, just few editing in couple of hours. I could try to do that tommorow for you and send you edited files, if you want.

That would be nice. Let’s try it? :)

xRicrdx

I’ll let you know tommorow or day after that, it depends on how much time I’ll have tommorow ;)

Okay!

Hi,

I just bought this theme, I really love it.

But I can´t get the portfolio page to work, and I can´t find how to in the documentation. Can you tell me how I can get it to work?

Thank you,

Nick

xRicrdx

Hi,

This is maybe because your theme is using different slug for portfolio, I am already preparing update where this can be changed through theme options.

Look into your desktop theme and in functions.php (or files like this) look for this function:
register_post_type('portfolio', $args);

copy the first arg, in this case ,,portfolio”, open up page-portfolio.php and look for these lines.

$loop = new WP_Query(array(
            'post_type' => 'portfolio', //replace this with the one that you've copied
            'paged' => $paged,
            'posts_per_page' => $per_page
        ));

Replace that line and it should work ;), if not or you are not certain what to do, feel free to write me an e-mail and I will do it for you ;)

Lovely theme, but few questions before I think about making a purchase…

Hi, Lovely Theme, but have questions before I think about the purchase!

1. When I go to your preview, it only shows blog, but is there any way to add a right sidebar? Or even two sidebars between the posts?

2. I do not like “Read More” buttons on the blog, I like 3-4 full posts per page. Is it possible to do that as a full-post blog rather than adding “Read More—->”? I want all content/photos on that blog.

Thanks!

xRicrdx

Hi,

1. I am not really exactly sure what you mean by this.

2. I am currently updating theme options and I will include this feature in next update.

Hello,

I’m ready to buy this theme but I’d like to know if there is an easy way to have by default entire posts on the homepage ?

thanks

xRicrdx

Hi,

Thank you for your interest and yes, there is One checkbox in theme options that you need to check (Blog page > Ignore <- MORE TAG !—>) and this will show whole content of the post at the home page and hide read more button ;)

Hi,

Since your latest update, I can’t use ‘Jetpack by WordPress.com’ anymore.

I get this error message:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare vimeo_shortcode() (previously declared in /home/deb13692n4/domains/winphonic.nl/public_html/wp-content/themes/stacker/shortcodes.php:332) in /home/deb13692n4/domains/winphonic.nl/public_html/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortcodes/vimeo.php on line 69

Do you have an solution?

Greetings,

Nick

xRicrdx

Hi,

Could you please try to change this line in shortcodes.php
add_shortcode('vimeo', 'vimeo_shortcode');
to
add_shortcode('stacker_vimeo', 'vimeo_shortcode');
Or in this case, you can completely delete it, because jetpack has it’s own shortcode for vimeo which has same name as this theme is using, so you don’t need it if you are using jetpack plugin ;)

That doesn’t work, but yeah. I have deleted Jetpack. Problem solved. :P

xRicrdx

That will work too ;) but in the future if you want to use it again, deleting whole function should work ;) (the one with the name vimeo_shortcode)

Wow, great job on this theme. Would love to buy it for my portfolio… but I don’t like the “full-screen display” is it possible to when clicking on an image/video use something similar to prettyPhoto?

xRicrdx

Hi,

If you are using only one image for portfolio project, than you would have to replace just one line ;) however i asume that this is not enough for you, so I will make an option for that in theme options, but i am not sure if prettyPhoto supports video in lightbox so i am not suer if this will work for video.

decypherdesigns

Well, in some projects I need video and images… I really like this style, of blog and portfolio. I need something that can be a blog, portfolio and to have a section that can be used to share freebies (another portfolio page would work).

But that full-screen viewing in my opinion is to hard to navigate, and to close… ;) If you introduce another kind of image/video viewing drop me a line =) Thanks again

xRicrdx

I ment that I will do it no matter what :D but it might take a little bit longer to do when photoswipe doesn’t support video ;)

For some reason the logo, no matter what size I upload… is shrunk to a very tiny size (Using the uploader in the theme). Any idea why?

xRicrdx

Hi,

To fix this change your CSS to this, or add this into theme options (Code Integration -> Custom CSS )

#MainLogo img{
    width: auto;
    display: inline-block;
}

Let me know if that worked ;)

I have it already fixed in new version but it’s not yet uploaded, so sorry about that.

Hi, thanks for the quick feedback.

The CSS file is empty, just credits in it. I want to be able to change things (not just add things) in the css, how do I do this?

Cheers :)

xRicrdx

yes, you will have to use css located in /css/main.css – there’s all css that’s used in this theme ;)

Okay… I want to be able to do this from Wordpress though, I’ve always been doing that with other themes? The style.css is the only one in the list under “Editor” though.

PS. Do you have MSN messenger to do this more effeciently? :P

xRicrdx

Just ICQ :-/

However I’ve just edited the theme so it uses the style.css now and you can edit everything from wordpress ;) could you please send me an e-mail? you will have to rewrite style.css and header.php

Hey ! Great theme but I have some question. When I click in a category from an article, in this example “Film is not dead” it should lead me to all articles from this category right ? The thing is that : 1/ All articles from this category are not displayed 2/ Some portfolio are appearing also :(

http://www.monsieurgaudy.com/film-is-not-dead/

Second thing is about portfolio image setup, is there an optimal resolution that I to set to my images before upload them ? I mainly upload photos.

Thanks

xRicrdx

Hi,

1) I’ll have a look at that tommorow, I’ve tried to find something which could cause this problem, but with no luck so far.

2) Could you please send me an e-mail ? I will send you updated version where you can disable Archives for portfolio in theme options (portfolio page).

3) Basically it really depends on you, if you will link them in full resolution, they will look crisp and clear on devices like iPhone 4, new iPad, HTC One X… the ones with high resolution displays. However the page shrinks to width 320px on ios and 360px on android and I think 768px on ipad and other tablets. So if you want to save bandwith, I would recommend something with 600px width, that’s in my opinion the balance between quality and size of the file.

Nice! Does this support self-hosted html5 videos _ I need to build a video gallery…

xRicrdx

Hi,

There is’t any build in html5 video player, however It shouldn’t be hard to implement it, I will consider that in next update (I would suggest to use vimeo or youtube if you don’t relay on using self-hosted videos ;))

Hi xRicrdx,

Maybe you can look into a bug I found. When I schedule a post it’s already showing in the ‘Recent Posts’ list.

Thank you in advance,

Nick

xRicrdx

I’ll have a look at that as soon as i get home, thanks for the report and sorry about that ;)

xRicrdx

Fixed, uploading it right now ;)
