I’m getting an interesting error at the bottom of my static homepage (using homepage template) saying “Post category ID has not been specified”

any ideas on this? I could just edit the template and remove the php echo text, but i’m curious why i’m getting the error.

thanks!

ps. great theme, excellent job.

pexeto

Hi,

First of all- I’m glad you like my theme :)

This is not an error, but a message saying what you are missing in the page configuration. This page template is designed to contain posts and if you don’t select the ID of the category whose posts will be shown, this message would be output (I have added it to help people with the configuration). I guess you don’t want to use this template as it is supposed to be, so the easiest way to get rid of this message is to delete the php echo text in the homePage.php file.

I am following the help page instructions for adding a portfolio item. I have been able to generate the thumbnail and portfolio item, but the category (e.g. Illustration) will not show up in the nav bar above the portfolio images. Has this been an issue?

pexeto

Hi,

No one had this problem so far. Are there posts in the Illustration category? If there are no posts, then the category won’t be shown.

Default-user

yes the posts are in the illustration category. i have set up the portfolio page with a postCategory 4 and a postNumber 9.

i’m sure it’s something i am forgetting to set up. your theme has great documentation/ and set up help

thanks for any help with this issue

I think it would be easier if you send me some login details (by a private message) so I can have a look at the setting you have made :)

Hi

First of all, great template. I have two queries. 1. In the contact form, when I click the send button, nothing happens. 2. The fader slider doesn’t fade. Both images load up but nothing happens after that.

Please advise.

Thanks

pexeto

Hi,

I’m glad you like my theme :)

I think there is a JavaScript error. This may be caused by some additional plugins or code that you have added. So can you please try to disable all the additional plugins/code that you have added and see if it works?

Default-user

Perfect. It works. Thanks

Hi There,

First of all, really like the theme. It’s very good looking and has some great options. It’s mostly been very straight-forward to use.

I am struggling with one element of it however and could really use some one’s help. I have read the relevant instructions, but I still cannot work out what I am doing wrong, and I am hoping you can help me out.

I have set a ” Home Page” (not the featured page) and would like the slider to appear on the home page. So I read these instructions:

“Setting the fader/slider to your page For this page you can create a custom field with key slider. For this custom field you can set those values: slider- will insert an accordion slider to the page. You can see here how to customize the slider. fader- will insert a fader to the page. You can see here how to customize the fader. none- will remove the slider/fader”

However, I do not understand them?

Am I right in thinking I need to set a custom field when editing the home page? And if so, what do I call the custom field and what value do I enter?

Do I then have to write the word “slider-” into the text area for the slider to appear?

I could really use some help with this, as I know the instructions are there, I just don’t have a clue what they are asking me to do!

Thanks in advance for your help.

pexeto

Hi,

First of all- thank you, I’m glad you like my theme :)

So, yes- you are right that you have to create the custom field when editing your page- the form is located in the bottom of the page (this is shown with a screen shot in the documentation) . When creating the custom field there are 2 values that you have to insert- “name” and “value”.

In this case in the “name” field you have to insert the word: slider
The “value” field should contain the word: slider if you prefer the accordion slider OR fader if you prefer the image fader.

I hope you will deal with it :)

OK, I’m building my site with PaperCore theme for some days now. And I want to say that not only the theme is great, aesthetic, flexible, clean and elegant, but the support is also first class! All my questions have found answers, and quick answers!

This theme definitely worth the money!

Hello Pexeto,

And congratulation for completing such an elegant theme! Actually, this will be my first take on WordPress – really exciting! ;-) However, I just would like to clarify some points. At your convenience, can you please provide me with answers to the following?

1. When I resize the demo page to simulate screen 800×600 there is no horizontal scrollbar which reduce usability. Is it possible to enable the scrollbar or dynamically adjust the page for lower resolution and if so, how? 2. Again, to cater for smaller screen sizes and increase menu visibility, is it possible to place the right side menu to the left instead? 3. Where can one purchase the beautiful photographs you have used in your demo in the home page slider and portfolio page? Are their yours? 4. Finally just to clarify, all four version of your template are available as WordPress template in one download, right?

It’s amazing that you made available this theme to public! Can’t wait to purchase and make it work! ;-)

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,

Johnny

pexeto

Hi,

First of all- thank you for the interest :) I’m glad you like my theme!

Here are my answers:

1. Yes, a scrollbar can be added.

2. Yes, the sidebar can go to the left, some small CSS changes are needed.

3. The images used on the demo are not mine. I cannot find the site right now on my bookmarks, I hope I will find it soon :)

4. Yes, all 4 skins are included in the download. :)

This theme is beautiful.

This is the first time i am working with wordpress and attempting to design my business website.

I am progressing, however I can’t seem to get the Header image to be the name of my business instead of the image “The Paper Core – The Website Template.”

Thanks in advance for any advice. :)

pexeto

Hi,

Thank you, I’m glad you like my theme! :)

So there are PhotoShop files provided with this theme. You just have to open with PhotoShop the corresponding file, depending which skin you are using, edit it and save the image by replacing the current one. For more information you can read in the documentation the section “The header->The logo”

Hi, Great theme you made. There’s on thing i don’t success to do, this is to create the Blog page which show post category …

In your demo, this page : http://pexeto.com/papercore_wp/?page_id=123

And another question in the same direction : Is it possible to show a category i choose in this page ?

Thanks a lot,

Glen

pexeto

Hi,

I’m glad you like the theme :)

Did you read the documentation? Everything you see on the demo is explained in there. For the blog page you can read in the section “Template Pages->Index/Blog page”.

If you have read this section carefully and still have problems with setting the page, please let me know what exactly you cannot do.

About the second question- I’m not sure if I understood you right, but if you are asking whether it is possible to show the posts only from one category- yes, it is- this is also described in the documentation.

Hi pexeto, thanks for this great theme! I have now only one problem with portfolio items thumbnail generation: i create a post, then i create preview_image e description custom field, (thumbnail generation is ON in papercore options), but i not have the thumbnail in the post Link: http://www.naturainminiatura.com/macrofotografia-aporia-crataegi

The problem that i have sent you by mail is solved. The problem that i have now is this: it’s impossible autocreate the thumbnail in the portfolio item post….sorry for my english See the latest photo that i have posted now, in the sidebar latest portofolio : it’s not the thumb in the post! Thanks! Antonio

pexeto

I think I understood now. This feature only works with thumbnail generation “OFF”, but it is easy to change this. You just have to open the single.php and you have to replace this code (starting from line 77):

 <img class="postImg" src="&lt;?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumbnail', true); ?&gt;" alt="" />
    &lt;?php } ?&gt;

with this one:

<img class="postImg" src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumbnail', true); ?>" alt="" />
    <?php }else if(get_post_meta($post?>ID, 'preview_image', true)!=''){
    echo('<img src="'.get_bloginfo("template_directory").'/script/timthumb.php?src='.get_post_meta($post->ID, 'preview_image', true).'&amp;h=190&amp;w=290&amp;zc=1&amp;q=80" alt="" class="postImg"/>');

Hi,

I’m wondering if its possible to get both the slider window AND the header text to appear together on the home page. Right now the slider appears on home page but header text will only appear on a page if i make a “featured posts page”

Please advise.

Thanks

David

pexeto

Hi,

I’m not sure whether I have understood you right, but the home page supports a Header text section. Actually the Home page template is pretty much the same as the Featured page template, only the way the posts are shown is different. Are you sure “Home Page” is the template that you have selected for your page?

If yes, can I please have a link to your home page so I can have a look?

Hi, I’m implementing your theme, everything is fine, I have just one problem: In the sidebar, I want to show the categories including the number of posts in each (sub)category. But the number of posts (between brackets) appear in a new line, under the category name. This makes the list twice as long. In many other themes the number appears between brackets immediately after the category. I’ve searched every file to find where this is handled, but I can’t find it. Could you tell me what I have to do in order to make appear the number of posts in a category right after the category name, and not in a new line beneath it? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

You have to open the style.css file and in the section .sidebarMenu ul li a you have to remove this line:

display:block;

Greetings,

When the home page first loads the slider images are evenly spaced across teh panel – and after a second or two they start sliding. Is it possible to delay the slide even more by editing the JS script? I very much like that effect with the slide on rollover.

Also, is it easy to put in Popular Posts and Comments etc in the sidebar?

pexeto

Hi,

If you want you can open the slider.js file (within the script folder) and change the waitInterval variable’s value (on line 17). This will delay the images sliding but also will increase the interval between each image slide.

Regarding the Popular Posts on the sidebar- you can just create a new category called “Popular” for example, set the popular posts to belong to this category and use the “Latest Posts Widget” that I have provided to show the posts from this category :)

Very nice looking theme.

I will be using the theme as a blog and e-commerce site. I’ll be using a plug-in called PHPurchase, which allows you to add a ‘buy’ button in any post or page.

PHPurchase adds 5 pages on installation (one main page with 4 subpages). The names of the pages cannot be changed.

Will that be a problem with this theme?

Also, can the portfolio page be used as a ‘storefront’ category page rather than a ‘portfolio’? What I mean is, can I make the images in the portfolio link to an item page rather than a bigger picture of the image.

pexeto

Hi,

I’m glad you like my theme :)

I haven’t used this plugin, but I guess you won’t have any problems with this, if it is designed to work with normal themes.

Regarding your other question- it depends. If you can get the link of the item and insert it in the post manually as a custom field, then with small code changes it should work.

Great theme – finding easy to work with and well documented.

I do have one question. In the portfolio gallery section – is there a way to have a text description and url link at the bottom of each image as they are displayed larger in the pretty photo lightbox.

Hi,

Thank you, I’m glad you like my theme and documentation :)

Yes, it is possible. Do you have automatic thumbnail generation ON/OFF?

I have just tried to paste some code here, but obviously there is a problem with outputting code here and some characters weren’t displayed right. So can you please send me a personal message so I can give you the instructions?

Thanks for that tip (remove display:block;) it is an easy solution; but in order to the twitter-feed to appear nice, I have inserted display:block; in the twitter part just beneath it. Thanks,

Hi, Love the theme. Where can I change the amount of thumbnails on the portfolio page? I would like it to show 12 instead of the default 9 before it adds another page.

Thanks

pexeto

Hi,

Thanks, I’m glad you like my theme :)

As explained in the documentation, in your portfolio page you just have to create a custom field called postNumber and set its value to 12.

Hi, great theme.

The problem. Every post I have ever written shows up as a portfolio item. I don’t want that.

I’m workin locally on the site.

I have set the ID for Portfolio (postCategory, 3) and showing 12 items. (postNumber, 12)

In my Portfolio category, there’s a couple of subcategories.

Simple solution?

pexeto

Hi,

I’m glad you like my theme :)

If you have set the postCategory custom field correctly, other posts than those from the selected category should not be shown. So please double check if you have set it in the correct way. Also, custom fields are case sensitive, so if you insert for example PostCategory it won’t work. If you are sure you have set correctly this custom field with the category ID and it still shows other posts, please send me a private message with login details so I can have a look at the settings you have made.

Default-user

Hey Pexeto, thanks for your reply.

I have set CF’s to postCategory and postNumber. So there are no case-sensitive issues.

As I am setting up the site locally I really can’t give you access to it.

pexeto

I cannot say what is wrong in the settings unless I can see what settings have been made. Please check again the ID of the category- it is shown in the URL in the bottom left part of the window when hovering the category name. I am almost sure that this problem comes from not setting the postCategory custom field correctly.

Hi. Love this template. Just having installation problems. I uploaded the folder as instructed. Activated the template. Go to the dashboard to begin the settings. Only have the “about” page to choose from. Where did I go wrong. Thanks!!

pexeto

Hi,

I’m glad you like my theme :)

You have to create your own pages, pages don’t get created by the theme itself. Please read the documentation first (in the folder called READ _ME_FIRST) and I am sure most of the things about customizing this theme will become clear for you.
