Hi. What would be the easiest way to limit the front page to one category? Is there a theme option for it, or should I tweak the index.php? Great theme, easy to use.

xRicrdx

Hi, unfortunately not right now, you’ll have to edit the index.php and thanks ;)

This theme works with main wordpress desktop theme ?

xRicrdx

Hi, yes you can use it with your current desktop theme using the Theme Switcher plugin (this theme is ready for that) or use it as standalone theme ;)

Thanks where I can found that plug in?

You can use for example this one

Pre-sale questions: We are mainly interested in the BLOG page only. 1. Does this work with Adsense Ads? Do they display properly on blog posts? 2. We use screen shots in our Posts, will they resize/responsive? I have seen some that the image falls off the screen still.

xRicrdx

Hi, yes both things should work without a problem ;)

This theme is really amazing !

I purchased, and downloaded the mobile theme. When I upload it, I get this message: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Can you help me please ? Peter

Hi, are you installing the stacker_install.zip file through wordpress?

Hey there,

First off, I just wanted to say that I love this theme. After hours of searching, this was one of the few themes I found that offered both a solid mobile and desktop experience, whereas a lot of the other “responsive” themes felt as though they’ve never been tested on mobile and just offered a terrible experience. So… well done!

Anyhow, as embarrassing as this is, I’ve never really used WordPress before, and I could really use some assistance with understanding how to use the Portfolios functionality and how pages/posts tie together with Portfolios. I did attempt creating a portfolio, but when I go to the permalink to test, I get a “Not found!” error, so I’m sure I’m not doing something right.

If you could point me to any documentation, or provide some brief instructions, that would be most helpful.

Thanks!

xRicrdx

Hi, send me an e-mail and I’ll do what I can ;)

Hey, I loved the look of this theme in the preview but I just can’t get it to work properly! I must be doing something wrong.

I really can’t seem to figure out portfolios, maybe I’m missing something. Do you have any documentation on setting that up?

Would really appreciate your help, really want to get the best use out of it! :)

Thanks!

xRicrdx

Hi, just send me an e-mail with more information (e.g you don’t know how to create portfolio posts, page…) and I’ll help you with that ;)

Hello, I couldn’t find an e-mail address to contact you. I registered at your support site and submitted a ticket almost a week ago but I haven’t received a response yet.

I included a screenshot of my portfolio edit screen as I think there is something missing. I hope you are able to respond soon :)

Many thanks,

xRicrdx

Hi, I’m sorry for not responding, I was really ill past two weeks and wasn’t able to reply. I am putting together answers to your questions on the support site right note, so make sure to check it out in few minutes ;)

How can I fix that??

Thanks in advanced!

Hi, I just bought your theme and I was very happy with it but since this evening, when I want to access the admin area, I just get this message : Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in …...../envato-wordpress-toolkit-library/class-envato-api.php on line 344

Since I’ve only updated the style.css file, I’m surprised by this behaviour. Any idea ?

Thanks a lot

J.

Hi there, it seems that envato autoupdater isn’t ready for wordpress 3.5, you can dissable it by going into functions.php and commenting/deleting this line:
add_action('admin_init', 'on_admin_init');
You can also delete your username and api key from theme options, this should fix your problem ;) Until the library is updated, I don’t recommend to use it.

Hi, I just bought your nice theme. BUT: 1. Can you disable your commenting system? I want to use Jetpack’s instead. I think it’s a bit odd you’ve chosen a commenting template without URL. Almost as strange as the phonenumber on the contact formular.

2. When I click a category view to consist of full post. Not a short excerpt. How can I do that, when I don’t want to use featured images?

xRicrdx
1. In single.php delete this line:
<?php if (get_option('acera_blog_comments', 'false') == 'false') comments_template('', true); ?>
2. To show full post go through these files in your theme:
  • format-blogstandart.php
  • format-blogvideo.php
  • format-blogquote.php
  • format-bloglink.php
  • format-bloggallery.php
and delte the ,,|| is_archieve()” condition in if statement. Screenshot

I LOVE this theme and want to buy it but want to make sure I fully understand what this mobile version will do to my site. You said this to a commenter a few months ago: “Hi, yes you can use it with your current desktop theme using the Theme Switcher plugin (this theme is ready for that) or use it as standalone theme.”

I want to use it with my desktop theme. Does this mean that once I install the theme switcher plugin & the theme that this theme will work fully with my desktop theme? Will all the posts I already have on my site automatically come up on the mobile version and will the menu on this mobile version change to the menu I already have on the site? Or am I gonna have to set things up?

Also what do you mean by standalone theme? Does that mean to create posts for the site that will only show up on the mobile theme?

xRicrdx

Hi, first of all by Standalone theme, I mean using it as desktop theme just like the one you are using so far ;)

Using the device switcher, it will simply switch theme for different devices, this means if your desktop theme is not written in some weird way, your posts from desktop theme should display correctly. However there might be some problems Like if you are using some special shortcodes on desktop theme, these won’t work on mobile theme (it will just print shortcode because there’s nothing coded behind these keywords)

Hi Jan,

I’m working on this for the client: http://bachor.com/wp-dev

I have the homepage set to Portfolio with 6 items to show. There are 10 portfolio items total. However, when user selects “2” or “NEXT” from the portfolio navigation, they are NOT redirected to the 2nd page of content.

Here are some screenshots of how I configured the settings:

1. Theme Options > General: http://screencast.com/t/oljnc5Yz

2. Theme Options > Portfolio Page: http://screencast.com/t/OD4oXi7p

3. Settings > Reading: http://screencast.com/t/8sYElndP

4. Portfolio page template setting: http://screencast.com/t/VvauWvohMya

5. Portfolio item, post type format: http://screencast.com/t/8XJbLSWah

I’m not sure what I’m missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Emil

Hi, first of all thank you very much for the through description of your problem ;). Now here’s home.php which will show by default on your page your portfolio posts, just paste it into your theme root directory, then you can control posts per page through Worpress -> reading option, not through theme options. http://cl.ly/LvLy

Default-user

Thank you, sir.

I added the home.php file – But, now we don’t have the pagination for the portfolio. I tried to replace the bottom pagination section in the home.php file ( <?php bottom_pagination(); ?> ) with the bottom pagination from the portfolio page template ( <?php bottom_pagination($loop->max_num_pages); ?> ) and still no go. The pagination renders, but does not function.

Any other recommendations?

Default-user

I hope I catch you in time…DO NOT do anything else regarding this portfolio nav issue. Our client is going in another direction…NOT going to display portfolio from home landing page.

I appreciate the help, Jan. Thanks so much ~ Emil

Hi, ok, good to know ;) Let me know on my support site http://jansimecek.ticksy.com when you have any further questions ;)

Just purchased this theme. Everytime I hit activate, I get a “HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.” on every page on my site… any ideas? I’m no expert with wordpress, the only thing I can seem to do is re-install wordpress to get it working again

EDIT: I discovered deleting the theme does the trick, I get access back to wp-admin again to re-activate default. Any ideas? Im stuck on 3.1.4 due to old mySQL on host servers.

xRicrdx

Hi, could you please repost this message to http://jansimecek.ticksy.com I’ll get back to you there as soon as possible.

Default-user

Can’t you answer here? I’d rather not sign up.

xRicrdx

Ok, but I’ll maybe need some more information, but you can then send them to me by e-mail, never mind.

Ok, try delete this function from functions.php
$updater_username = "denonstudio";
$updater_api_key = "xxxxxxxav7hny3p1ptm7xxxxxxxx";
$updater_username = get_option('acera_updater_username');
$updater_api_key = get_option('acera_updater_api');

// register an action (can be any suitable action)
add_action('admin_init', 'on_admin_init');
function on_admin_init()
{
    // include the library
    include_once('envato-wordpress-toolkit-library/class-envato-wordpress-theme-upgrader.php');    
    $upgrader = new Envato_WordPress_Theme_Upgrader( $updater_username, $updater_api_key );    
    /*
     *  Uncomment to check if the current theme has been updated
     */    
    $upgrader->check_for_theme_update(); 
    /*
     *  Uncomment to update the current theme
     */    
    $upgrader->upgrade_theme();
}
and activate the theme again. If it works it’s fine ;) if doesn’t let me know again ;)

Sorry, still happening

xRicrdx

Ok… does other themes work for you ? Which wordpress version are you using ?

Default-user

All themes work fine. Wordpress v5. I switched hosts today to one that supports it. Also – the theme works fine when activated, I just cannot go near wp-admin, etc..

Default-user

wordpress 3.3.1, my bad

Default-user

Ok, tried a couple of things but not sure which worked. Updated to 3.5, change file permissions, used installer rather than FTP. One of ‘em worked anyway. Thanks for your quick replies.

xRicrdx

Hi, I am glad you worked it out. It’s possible that it was because of the wordpress version, however this should work from 3.1 up

Hi xRicrdx,

It’s me again, i just downloaded your last update, but im affraid something went wrong. First i updated my wordpress instalation to 3.5, every thing was ok, but then a updated the theme to 2.4 and since that i cant reach my blog’s posts. I downgrade to old wordpress and didnt work, then i changed to Tweenty Eleven wp theme and the posts came back. I did ereased my DB, and installed both wp and theme again, but i still cant get the posts. So i guess is a problem in the last update Stacker theme. Its says is a DB issue. Here goes the message i get when i try to access any post:

Do i miss something? COuld you help find what is wrong?

Thanks

xRicrdx

Hi, do you use any special plugins like theme loaders or something like that ? This really strange, I am not using any direct access to Mysql database, it’s all handled through wordpress default functions, so this looks more of a problem during update.

Hey I was hoping to make new pages separate from my desktop theme. I am using shortcodes on my desktop theme that don’t fair well with the mobile them. Is the only way around this to set up a sub domain set up the mobile site as i would want it and then us .js redirection script in my header to do this?

xRicrdx

Hi, this theme has custom navigation option. Here you can define which pages you want to show in navigation. There’s unfortunately no GUI ordering but it makes possible to have different pages on mobile than on desktop where you can use wordpress Menus page. You can however order the pages manually by typing numbers into their order meta box.

xRicrdx

... everything is on the same domain using device switcher ;)

Inhousewebsolutions

Ok thanks but what about the front page? Currently it just uses the one defined by the wordpress reading settings

Inhousewebsolutions

I want the homage different from my main page

xRicrdx

This is a little bit tricky, but I can provide front-page.php template which replaces the homepage from your desktop theme and you can (by replacing the page id in the file) put a custom page on the front-page.

How can I change it so clicking on the logo links home rather than the page itself? Thanks

xRicrdx
Hi, change line 283 in header.php from this:
<a id="MainLogo" href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>">
</a>
to this:
<a id="MainLogo" href="<?php home_url(); ?>">
</a>

The Blog Alt. Layout is no longer responsive – All the posts just line up vertically on the left side of the page?

Any idea why this is happening? – I notice that it is happening on the demo site as well

Hi, it’s fixed now, it was also a problem with the Isotope library which is used to generate the mansory layout ;)

If anyone else has this problem you can fix it by going to line 7 of the functions.php file and replace the link with this one…

Prospective buyer:

I love the theme but is there an issue with the display of the blog? When I go to the alt blog or twin column blog, the blog entries aren’t responding to the width of the screen on PC and Tablet; they are always mobile phone size. Is this a known issue with the theme (or possibly just the live demo)?

I see that jaja935 has a fix that I’m more than capable of implementing but I would like to know if it will be updated.

xRicrdx

Hi the blog alt template is responsive, the posts are aligning to from left to right, however there’s been a problem with the live preview last 3 days. I’ve already fixed this and uploaded new fixed version of the theme for the review. I was just broken plugin which needed a new update ;)
