Hello again,

I seem to have a problem with the menubar not showing. I’ve created the pages and menu, but it still isn’t showing on my website, what could I be missing/doing wrong?

Is it possible for you to, give us the optimal size/specs for a site logo, for this particular theme?

I mean yes, you can put any logo in, but I am a little confused, how you made “The Blog” logo melt in with the social link buttons, particularly with the grey background.

What do you mean by melting with social icons? Anyway, logo size on demo website is 61px in height (372px in width, if it is important). Also you can change logo position in theme options.

Thanks!

On the right side, you have the social media buttons. How did you incorporate those at that specific location. I’ve downloaded the AddThis widget, but it doesn’t really look like the preview you have.

What is the total width from left to right (logo/header area)?

Great thanks!

I’ve now installed my new logo on the website. But when I adjust the Logo margin bottom on the Global settings; The logo keeps moving down and moves over the slider and the left sidebar get’s distorted, so it all looks out of sync. Is there a setting to adjust the margins/room between the logo and the body of the website?

Hi,

You can move it up and down with this setting, if you use positive value it will move up.

Thanks!

Hi,

Just purchased this theme…

I only seem to have the option to use the ‘orbit’ or ‘post’ sliders? How do I access the others? Also, how do I incorporate a slider into the sidebar, as advertised (only seems to give me the option for the header).

Thanks for your help,

MNKY

Hello,

Other sliders are used as shortcodes, consult user manual for slider instructions.

Thanks!

Think you forgot to post the solution to my header, body issue.

There is a header height option in theme settings. Make it bigger, then add margin-bottom to your logo and it will be fine :)

Thanks!

I am sorry, but what your telling me, isn’t working. The Logo is still overwritting the body of my website.

You’ll have to explain it better I am afraid. I can not move the body down. It’s almost like your logo script isn’t completed.

Have you set larger ‘Header area height’ in global options?

Thanks!

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 1-2 years

I have yes, that works now. So where do I remove the space between header and body?

MNKY
MNKY Author

Now move logo using positive or negative number for logo margin bottom. For example, -20px to move it down or 20px to move it up.

Thanks!

Thanks, although I’m still a bit confused w/ how these sliders operate?...

I’m not really sure how to populate the Nivo/jCarousel sliders with content? Can I hard code images, or do they have to be ‘by attached to post images’? Even when I add the slider to a post which has images inserted, it says ‘Nivo slider: no attached images, or only one attached image…’ on the front end? Where have you added the images in the slider on this page for instance? http://www.mnkystudio.com/theblog/sliders/nivo/

I also have a question re: the post slider.

If I have set up 5 categories for instance, and I want category 1 page to show posts published under category 1 in the slider for this page, category 2 to show posts published under category 2 in the slider for this page etc. how can I achieve this?

I can see how to define or restrict categories in the Post Slider Settings under Theme Options, however this is global so if I restrict to category 1, the category 3 page will also show posts under category 1 only.

I hope this makes sense!?

Hi,

Please refer to user manual. There are instructions how to set up all sliders.

Sorry, post slider does not have such functionality, only one post slider can be created.

Thanks!

Thank it all worked out fine now, header and body are now perfect thanks!

A last question, the very bottom line/marker, can I remove that somehow?

MNKY

You can add this to style.css

#footer-widget-area-background {display:none;}

Thanks!

Thanks! It works perfectly.

When I goto my pages, the widget areas has switched to the left, but I want it on the right, how do I change that?

MNKY
MNKY Author

You might have switched them in theme options/blog settings.

How do I post in my other pages, like I do on the frontend of the website?

I want to be able to post blogs on all my pages.

You can either use category pages or use blog post shortcode to pull posts to pages.

Thanks!

Hi

I use cufon-font BebasNeue but get problems when I use ÆØÅ. The letters are not shown, probably because they are not supported? Any solution for that?

MNKY
MNKY Author

You should use another font or upload your one thats supports them.

Thank you!

I’m using the paged 4 column portfolio and would like to have the images click directly to an external site as opposed to clicking to a magnified image. How can I do this?

Thanks.

Hello,

Unfortunately there is no such option in default portfolio. It will require customization.

You can use any portfolio plugin with such feature on your website.

Thanks!

I set up a WordPress blog and chose to upgrade to get a more-business-like domain, I paid for the .com domain. My wordpress site goes by the name – www.fashion-fries.com

I looked at the themes available and none were suitable for my needs. So upon googling I discovered Theme Forest and I thought that The BLog theme by MNKY suited my needs perfectly, so I went ahead and bought the theme.

After purchasing, I downloaded the theme and unzipped it as per the instruction. However, I’m not totally stuck, as I am unable to upload it onto my wordpress site. Upon going to Appreance > Themes, the option of ‘Install Themes’ is mot available. Even though I am following your user manual step by step, I am stuck!!

Please do revert with some guidance to uploading my customised theme.

Hello,

I’m facing two issues and it would be great if you can help me:

1. I selected the search widget. I can see the white box but not the button to confirm the search. What do I need to do to solve it?

2. I would like to add a Contact Form to my blog. What process do I need to follow to install it?

Thank you!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hello,

1. There should be lense icon next to the bog, isn’t it there? Are you using child theme?

2. Please see user manual section about contact form. You can also disable integrated version per instructions in the end of the user manual and install any plugin, like contact form 7.

Thank you!

Hello,

If your current theme does not have many shortcodes or other elements supported only in your theme, then there will be no problems :)

Happy holidays!
