How come on the homepage flexslider you have 4 slides but when you click on the slide to open it in pretty photo, in pretty photo it says 1 of 6 and has six thumbnails?

Heya Kozmik! That’s just a demo thing – I’ve messed with the data in there so much that it’s grabbing some values to showcase special stuff like videos ;) You can do that too – but in most cases it’ll just grab one value per slide. B

No it happens also with other sliders that i have created using this template which use my own content. I have the code in front of me and there is no extra markup like videos. I think it’s a bug.

Also the portfolio when you click back and forth enough on categories and then different views, it gets confused and displays the wrong layout view.

Yup – absolutely! Shoot me a message from my profile page – it’ll show up in my inbox :) B

HI , great looking theme! I’m curious is it possible to post self hosted videos with this theme? And if so what formats?

Also is it possible to go full screen with self hosted videos? I just bot burned by another theme that couldnt do this :(

MDNW

Yep – .MP4 and .FLV are the default, but you can use Youtube or Vimeo hosted videos as well, which expands the file types by quite a bit. Full screen all pretty much has to do with the layer you want to use – most of them offer a fullscreen option though. :)

It’s all done through the new shortcode plugin (Shortcodes Ultimate). You just upload the video and then copy the uploaded file’s URL when you use their “media” shortcode. Set the width to 100% and it’ll also be responsive for all devices inline.

There’s also a lot of great plugins out there that are available for free – for instance, the Video.JS plugin allows you to upload a lot of other formats including .MOV files using the standard HTML5 Video element. For example: http://super-skeleton.makedesign.wpengine.com/portfolio-post-12/

Hope that helps! B

Hey epicera, first off thank you so much for this theme, it is beautiful semantic and makes amazing sense. I do have an issue and can’t seem to find a solution for. The slider doesn’t show up in IE7 , i mean it doesn’t even show up in your demo when i test on IE7 . Is there a way to get this working?

Secondly, im assuming all prettyphoto links wont work on IE7 as well. I noticed in your demo, the images on the homepage open up in a separate tab. If there is no way to get prettyphoto working as it should, how do i make the images open up in a separate tab ?

Here’s a link to the website, please let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks.

Will do Pra – I’m currently negotiating with the FancyBox 2 author to see if we can get that box into the SS themes – still no word back from him but I personally like that Lightbox a lot more ;) The only issue is it costs individual users something like $40… which is uncool for you guys unless I can get a distribution license setup with him.

Yup! The good news is that FancyBox will be coming to SuperSkeleton soon – we just got word this weekend that we’ll be allowed to package it with the theme :) I’ll update the main log when this happens – I’m hoping it’ll be included in the first 2.0 release! B

Hi, your theme looks great for me. I´d like to use this one. So, I tested it in IE7 for me but the responsive design doesn´t work for me and I get an script error: “line 215, char 4”. What´s wrong?

Other issues (tested on WinXP/IE7; Java Script is active) 1. Social icons background isn´t transparent 2. Social icons list isn´t horizontal => I tested your site by removing the frame by themeforest: http://super-skeleton.mdnw.net/ Please have a look on my screenshots: https://www.dropbox.com/s/z4ppt8wn6d6n4ol/screen-ie7.png https://www.dropbox.com/s/qb5qog9gwqyjqj5/responsive-design-ie7.png

Just demo issues?

On Safari 5.1.7 (Mac) and Firefox 11.0 (Mac) everything works fine for me.

Thanks for your help Ingo

Heya Ingo – Every release we add a few more backward-compatibility patches – I’ll note these for the next update :) B

1. There is no integration of polyfill for min/max-width CSS3 Media Queries for IE 6 -8 => Solution: add “respond.js” https://github.com/scottjehl/Respond

2. IE 6 -7 don´t understand display: inline-block That makes layouts issues by the <ul /> of social icons => Solution: override it all with: display:-moz-inline-stack; display:inline-block; zoom:1; *display:inline; Works for Firefox 2+, too

3. modernizr.js is emty => Get it here: http://modernizr.com/

Heya!

1. Thanks for the heads up – I’ll integrate this in the next update for ya :)

Hi,

Can you advise how I can make the superfish menu drop up rather than down?

Thanks Dave

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Dave! No clue to be honest – I’d check out the official documentation – our code for it is housed in /assets/javascripts/skeleton-key.js and the accompanying superfish.css file :)http://users.tpg.com.au/j_birch/plugins/superfish/

B

Hey epicera,

Great design. Before I purchase, will I be entitled to an upgrade to version 2.0 if it is imminent?

Many thanks

MDNW
MDNW Author

All updates are free, always :) Version 2.0 will just be another in a long line that we’ve released… the only thing notable being the big jump from 1 to 2 (and the features of course).

Cheers! B

Ah brilliant, and are there any IE7 issues still outstanding that some have referred to?

Can you tell me which file needs to be edited to change the bg colour and width of the dropdown menu?

Hi,

where is the contact page template? I can’t create a new page with the contact template…

Tekka

Hi, I am looking at buying this theme and as a developer I am especially happy that it sounds and looks like it’s a nice clean template without lots of baked in bloat like working contact forms or image viewers! Great work!!!

So my only question before purchase is with regard to the menu when viewed on my iPhone. If I try to select an item from the drop-down the whole menu is selected and I have no idea what has been selected? Is it going to be trivial to switch this out?

Many thanks

Hi Tony!

Try removing the “preview frame” at the top – this theme has a whole separate iPhone mode that displays a much easier to use dropdown menu on mobile devices where you can set a different unique set of menu items for just phones :)

B

Thanks for your response Epicera, here is what it looks like on an iPhone:

http://flamestudios.com/iphone.png

Is this what you expected to see?

When I click that menu the whole thing is selected rather an individual item.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Ahhh – nope – try removing the “chozen” script from the file though – I’m starting to move away from recommending that as it messes with the device’s default UI too much :) B

Hey,

How do you get the front page to look like it does in the demo?

By default I had a “Sample Page” that had no slider or blurbs.

I see in the Optiontree panel that it has front page options but no front page…

thanks in advance

Heya Loco – we have a video on setting it up as the demo looks here: http://youtube.com/makedesignnotwar :) In short, you fill out the theme options and make sure the Settings > Reading panel is set to “Your Latest Posts”. B

Hi,

Having an issue with the portfolio page…in the backend, under the “Super Skeleton Page Options” only two of the categories I created are showing up for “Category Filters (for Blog and Portfolio pages)”. Any idea as to why I’m not seeing the rest of my categories show up there?

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi MT! Each category needs to have at least one published post in order to show up in any WP category list… can you confirm that this is the case?

Thanks! B

That did the trick! Thanks!

FYI I am getting this when trying to visit the demo site:

Website blocked by Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Malicious website blocked

http://makedesign.wpengine.com/reactor/skeleton/ Rating: Dangerous Verified fraudulent page or threat source. What You Can Do: Contact your administrator about security settings on your network

By the way, I’m not saying there IS a problem, just that you have been blacklisted for some reason and it may be costing you sales ;)

Default-user

epocera, I was careful not to say you have a virus. Don’t declare that the problem is our end so quickly.

Trend Micro runs from a database blacklist created using various methods. So even before we accessed the page we are blocked to prevent us getting infected. It is YOUR page that is being reported as infected and NOT any files local to our network. The fact that the files are plain HTML does not mean your hosting was not POTENTIALLY hacked and additional files / code were added.

Either way your site has been identified as having a problem (be that a real one or a false positive) by another party, hence being added to the database. I can confirm that other virus checkers show no problem with your website at this moment in time.

However, out of courtesy we notified you so that you can proceed to get yourself removed as a threat from the Trend database.

Please show the same respect / courtesy when dealing with matters such as this and avoid instant finger pointing.

Default-user

For the record this template has now been unblocked by Trend Micro and they have updated their database.

Whoa there ;) I meant no rudeness or ill intentions – that’s the internet talking. I encountered something similar in the past and simply shared my experience. I’m super thankful for making me aware that the site was adding to a blacklist database – no hard feelings I hope!

No viruses here from the site ;o)

So anyway, in the dark theme the tabs still come out white. Is this by design or have the tabs just not been included in the dark theme? I can see some css going on, but it gets overriden further down with

a ul.tabs li a.active, ul.tabs li a.active:after{ background: white; }

Thanks
