good news:

optiontree plugin just got updated and should no longer cause problems with adding / -slashes to textareas

to get the updated version, just navigate to Plugins=>Plugins, find optiontree plugin and click “upgrade automaticly”

Hi

Nice theme. Please can you tell me what happens to the images if they aren’t landscape shape – on the home page and on the blog?

Are the boxes below the image on the homepage and the lists customisable – can they be filled with anything or removed?

Can video be added at all?

I would want to keep the pages on the top menu the same except the second called features – can I just have an About page in place of this?

Thanks

Claudia.

Hi Claudia

The images are automaticly cropped when they are uploaded, so wordpress picks the middle part of the image and resize it so it fits into the container, only requirement (for the slider) is that image have at least 944px width.

The 3 images and boxes below the slider can be changed ofcourse, you can even get rid of them, and replace them with 2 columns, or full width content or a blog.

Yes video is supported both in posts/pages and in gallery.

and you can edit the menu content easily :)

two questions:

1) I need to remove the file name from below the slider. (I see that someone else had this problem, but I didnt understand the answer, so perhaps just an elaboration)

2) at the top of each page is the word “blog” followed by the page name. is there any way of removing this?

thank you.

EvGreen

Hey

1) you just need to put blank space sign in the title of the image (not the title of slide post but the featured image itself), either simple ” ” will work or   – which is also space sign but in HTML code.

2)You can change it in breadcrumbNavxt plugin settings, think I’ve wrote about it in help file, if you will need some more guidance mail me, I’ll send you screenshots where it is exactly

cheers :)

Hi, I’ve just installed Survive Theme and I’m having trouble to visualize some images such as social media icons and the logo. Can you help me wiith this? Thanks a lot!

EvGreen

you mean troubles with uploading them? make sure that when the image is uploaded, and before you click “insert into post”, you have selected “File URL ” button. On some installations the default is set to “Post URL ” and that returns links with /?attachment_id=xx which is not the right form of the link.

It should be enough to make it upload correctly. If you will have any more troubles, feel free to mail me directly and possibly add acc/pass to your wordpress installation in the mail, so I can do things quicker.

I’m having some troubles with this theme.

First, (and big one) is the wp-prettyphoto plug-in has been broken with the new Wordpress 3.1 release. The slider works, but clicking any photo to enlarge locks up the browser, and the Firefox error console says “itemSrc is undefined” repeatedly.

People have been reporting this in the comments of the plug-in, and I’ve tried the fixes people offer there but it creates more problems. The browser doesn’t lock up, but it doesn’t enlarge the photo either.

Any ideas how to get it working?

EvGreen

hmm would be great if you could send me a mail with your acc/pass to wp installation I’ll have a look into it tommorow when I wake up :)

what you can try to do by yourself is to edit up functions.php (easiest through wp admin in appearance=>editor) and at line 8:

wp_enqueue_script('jquery');

change it to

wp_deregister_script('jquery');
        wp_register_script('jquery', 'http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js', false, '1.4.2');
        wp_enqueue_script('jquery');

this should force older version of jquery and bring back the plugin to life, and once the plugin will be updated to work with newer version, you will be able to revert this change

O, forgot the other things.

These are either future feature suggestions or I’m just not seeing the options.

A way to have a separate list of trackbacks/pingbacks removed from the comment stream. For example, the following code before the comments:

<?php if ( have_comments() ) : ?>

<?php $comments_by_type = &separate_comments($comments); ?>
<?php if ( !empty($comments_by_type['pings']) ) :  ?>

    <h3>Trackbacks / Pingbacks</h3>
    <ol>
    &lt;?php foreach ($comments as $comment) : ?&gt;
    &lt;?php $comment_type = get_comment_type(); ?&gt;
    &lt;?php if($comment_type != 'comment') { ?&gt;
    <li>&lt;?php comment_author_link() ?&gt;</li>
    &lt;?php } ?&gt;
    &lt;?php endforeach; ?&gt;
    </ol>
&lt;?php endif; ?&gt;

And Support for the new way Wordpress “paginates” comments. The function is

 <div class="navigation">
  <?php paginate_comments_links(); ?> 
 </div>

 <ol class="commentlist">
  <?php wp_list_comments(); /*  Old way <?php wp_list_comments('type=comment'); ?> */ ?>  
 </ol>

 <div class="navigation">
  <?php paginate_comments_links(); ?> 
 </div>

Looks much better then the old next and previous links. Unless i’m being blind and don’t see the options, I think I’m just going to add the code myself.

i have one more hic-up, then i’ll leave you alone :-) the gallery lightbox does not seem to be functioning properly. clicking on the “read more…” works, but when the pics are clicked on from the main galley page, a small transparent box appears and the photos never load. any idea why? cheers.

EvGreen

fixed it for you

what was happening is that new version of wordpress uses new version of jQuery as well which had some problems with the lightbox plugin. I forced the theme to use jQuery 1.4.2 and all works now.

Hi amazing template. Is it compatible with WPML or Qtranslate plugin ?

EvGreen

Thanks Wisha

Unfortunately Survive theme is english only. It doesn’t have .po or .mo files included which I guess are required for those plugins.

Hi again Do I need update something in optiontree for allow posts in mainpage. I don’t see this option in optiontree-mainpage settings.

EvGreen

hmm you might need to import the new settings for optiontree, just go to optiontree=>settings=>import and import xml again just like you did when installing the theme. Your old options will not be changed, just new options will be added

Thanks again, Evgreen and Sorry. I updated the theme (now I see 1.2) but nothing happens. When updating, you provide the file theme-options-2010-12-16.xml. This is the same file that 1.0 version. Soin optiontree- mainpage this option is not displayed. ... What am i doing wrong?

Thank you for your help. You always are very helpful.

EvGreen

hmm you should have the 2011-02-14.xml, try re-downloading the theme from envato or just mail me and ill send you that file

cheers

edit: whoops wrong, checked my other theme :) you got the right file there hmm just mail me mate with acc/pass to your wp installation and ill check it

EvGreen

hmm checked the 2010-12-16 on live preview server and it has Mainpage-Blog tab, so it should work

Great theme!!!

I need to remove the lightbox effect from the portfolio thumbnails, so when you click on them you go directly into the post! How can I do this? Can you help me please?

Thanks in advance!

EvGreen

Hey Frigno

to do that you will need to edit up page-myportfolio.php, at very long line 33 at the ending of that line you will find this:

else {$src = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), '' ); echo $src[0];

replace it with:

else {the_permalink();

didn’t test it but it should work :)

Hi

is it possible to add another row of blog items on the front page, i would love to have 6 (2 rows of three) items on the front page

ps excellent theme i installed it and got through the set up in world record time simply brillant :)

thanks

Allen

EvGreen

Hi Allen

hmm 2 rows of blog posts would require some major re-works in how the post blocks are delivered, that’d be pretty big change. It sure can be done but depends on how familiar you are with css. all in all you’d need to delete the sidebar section, then add one more class with bigger width to class “content_2_columns_left”, then add class with properties “float:left; display:inline; to div that has “post_wrapper” class, then adjust it’s width as well, and then change the cropping size for post images in functions.php

You’d need to be careful with all that and be cautious (is that the word?)because there are other page templates that use the same classes and would also be affected (like single.php)

Maybe it’d be just better to settle down with increasing how many posts you want on the mainpage in the optiontree options :)

thx for kind words, I am working hard to improve my themes further :)

Hi, working on implementing your theme. Everything was working great, then deleted the ‘home’ page and now a list of posts shows up on the homepage instead of the slider.

How can I fix this?

Thanks!

EvGreen

hmm either select different page as your homepage (in settings=>reading) or re-create the home page by.. well creating a new page and selecting the mainpage template for it

How do i get my footer to go all the way down? http://waaccountants.com/small-business

And also for some strange reason when i open up Option Tree and make some changes and then go back to the home page it changes the color of the copyright info. It adds these strange forward slashes to the font color.

EvGreen

Hi Blackshear

If you mean that the darker part of footer is not extending to the bottom of the viewable area – you can try adding background:#1D2126; property to the html{} class.

As for the slashes – try updating the optiontree plugin, and then check the fields in tabs if they don’t have unnecessary slashes and remove them. The older version of optiontree had small bug that was resulting in putting inserting more and more slashes on each save in textareas, might be that.

cheers

Default-user

when you say add background:#1D2126; to the html class are you saying css file?

Also on the team team page http://waaccountants.com/team the greybox or lightbox isnt working. It pulls up a black box but not the image.

EvGreen

yep, like this:

html{background:#1D2126;}
Default-user

Just incase you didnt see the edit ill post it again.

Also on the team team page http://waaccountants.com/team the greybox or lightbox isnt working. It pulls up a black box but not the image.

By the way your customer service rocks! Great theme!

EvGreen

hmm what you are describing might be caused by the lightbox-es plugin incompatibility with new jQuery that comes with wordpress 3.1+

The WP-prettyPhoto plugin seems to be stuck on v1.6.2 without updates, so what you can do is:

Go to Appearance->Editor->functions.php

there you will find a line like this (near the top):

wp_enqueue_script('jquery');

replace it with:

wp_deregister_script('jquery');
        wp_register_script('jquery', 'http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js', false, '1.4.4');
        wp_enqueue_script('jquery');

what it does is that it deregisters the default jQuery version that comes with wordpress (currently 1.5.1 I think) and loads 1.4.4 instead. You can try with 1.4.2 too if the first one won’t help

lemme know, cheers

Great theme.

Question: Can we integrate another in the slider like you see on http://rockablepress.com ?

Their site appears to be HTML but I would like to use the slider effect along with something to the right or left of the slider.

Ideas?

DM

EvGreen

Hello, you mean the block on the right?

Well it can be done ofc, but not directly in the theme, it would require some adjustments, changes to code and styling.

Easiest would be to create just additional div with absolute positioning inside the slider block, and set it to be on top (z-index) of the slider.

All in all you should take into account that it may require hiring a freelancer for a couple of hours, if you are not very familiar with css.

cheers
