Hi Dave,

I think I noticed a bug or I could be wrong. When you pick a category from the right menu panel, which correctly directs you to that category page. However, the MENU panel doesn’t open after that to select a different category.

Beautiful design – I love it! Just thought I’d add my request to the others here who would like an option to have the menu button centre middle (or even aligned right). I launched my site with this theme today and a lot of people aren’t noticing the menu button over on the left side. Thanks!

Thanks for adding your name to the pot, looks like its time to put this feature into production :)

Hello Obox, just a quick presale question: will this theme work well with Aesop Story Engine http://aesopstoryengine.com/ or, what will it take to make it work with it?
Thanks in advance while we wait for your answer to purchase.

Hi Yogova

I don’t see any reason why it shouldn’t :)

Thank you for your fast answer. Our only concern is because they say here, http://aesopstoryengine.com/developers/#scrollNav-1, that the main container must be 100% fluid and the paragraphs and headings limited to a specific max width.

We have achieved this layout for the paragraphs without any problems playing a little with the inspect element in one of your demo posts.

We don’t really need the standard shortcodes as our goal is to break the main content column with full width or at least bigger images. Your theme seems to be so well coded that every change we try is quite easy but we just wanted to confirm that this is a correct approach before giving it a try by our own.

Thanks again.

I don’t really like the font for the headlines. Can we change the headline font? Also, if we have larger logos, is there a way to put them on the page? I see ‘The Writer’ logo is too small. Lastly, how about the menu over on the left? I recall reading that you guys were going to change this, is it still going to happen?

The theme beautiful.

Hi Eabrego

Yep you can, The Writer comes with a built-in Typography manager which allows you to change the fonts of the headlines.

We are pushing an update soon which allows for the menu to be displayed on the top right (as opposed to being a slide out menu).

Hi Dave,

Wonderful. Any idea how many options, we’ll have for typography?

Also, when is the update coming? Any timeline on it? I’d like to get up and running once the update is complete.

In regards to logo placement, how much can we expand out up there in the header section for those of us who have larger logos?

Thanks for your swift response, Dave. Can’t wait to get up and running with this theme.

Hi Eabrego

Sorry for my late reply.

- There are 100 fonts to choose from in our Typography manager. - We hope to be pushing the menu update within the next seven days. - The logo will dynamically resize to the logo that you upload, there is no limit to the size :)

Hi, do you have an updated version of Selectra that I can purchase? The older version has so few features, but I love the look of the theme.

Let me know. Thanks.

Hi mibtp

Unfortunately our Selecta theme is not due for an update anytime soon. Sorry about that :(

Hello,

In a comment you said that for the feature images anything above 900×500 should work. What happens if the image is not vertical? Would the image be cropped if is 2200×800 for example?

Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that the latest version of The Writer has the option of a compact or expanded menu which means you can now display your menu in the header and not just the sidebar.

Hi, Obox.

1. With this update, will we still have the option to display the sidebar even if we use the new ‘header menu’?

2. If we use a ‘post cover’ with a background image, is there an option not to display this feature image as a ‘full-page intro screen’ for certain posts or specific categories? Maybe we can achieve it with your ‘Post Custom CSS’ panel? and if so, will this kind of ‘individual post customisation’ slow down a little the loading time of the post?

Thanks again for your answers.

Hi Yogova

1. Yes the sidebar will still be accessible with the header menu displayed

2. This would only be achievable with custom css at present. If you add it to the Post Custom CSS section in the post meta then it won’t slow down the load time as the file is generated when you save the post (as opposed to being loaded each time a visitor hits the page)
