Just one small thing I forgot, that orange thin top bar with the “x” just changed colour without and I swear it wasn’t me! :) And nothing I do – I already tried changing every single colour – brings it back. What am I doing wrong?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Disable your plugins, it could be some plugin CSS interfering with the theme, it doesn’t tend to change colours by itself ;)

Feel free to leave a ticket if you want me to take a quick look at your site for you;

I would love to leave a ticket, but where on your screenshot says ‘license certificate’ on mine says regular license and help with wp install. Is there any other options? I would love if you took a quick look at my site for me. :)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Ticksy have yet to update their screenshot (which is really annoying!) but you’ll find your purchase key inside the ‘license download’ which you’ll get to by clicking the ‘download’ button on your ‘downloads’ page.

Cheers!

A couple months back a user asked the following: “Is it not possible to show images on the blog template like you can on the homepage template with portfolio items?”

You responded: “Currently not, but I can add a new block to my page builder to do this in an upcoming update.”

I didn’t see this listed in any of the updates for the theme (I might have missed it) ... just wanted to follow up and see if in fact this functionality had been added.

Thanks in advance … really love the theme, just need to be able show images on the blog posts.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You’re right, that feature never hit the theme updates, I’ve been working on other, more requested features and general theme stability.

With yourself though that makes two requests, I’ll make sure that this ‘blog items styled like portfolio items’ block is put to the top of my update list.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks so much for the quick response. Will probably go ahead and grab the theme anyway and get the site up and running in anticipation of a hopeful update.

Hello,

1/ I was wondering if i can edit the contact form, or make a new one for example et Project Builder form as on Montreal Theme…

2/ And i think i have a bug on the contact form, there this field : input type=”text” id=”check” name=”check” who is showing up at the bottom of comment field, creating a space before the border bottom if the contact module… any advices ?

Thanks R.

Ok,

1/ yes i’m confortable with HTML/PHP… but Can i Add a second form so ?

2/ Please reconnect now to my website, i’ve deactivated th coming soon page…

That what i saw about this check field on your Demo TG site… but for some reason it appears in the bottom, unhidden… i don’t have any plugins… it under Safari 6

Many thanks for your quick answer :)

Default-user

1/ or i can make a static page with some contact plugin maybe… (contactform7 or else… ?)

2/ under Firefox /Chrome as well… (i’m on Mac)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Yes, just duplicate both the files I mentioned above, you’ll need to point the new contact form block to the duplicated & modified script & you’ll also need to re-register the duplicated contact form block (change the PHP class names at the top of the file) in /inc/page-builder/aq-page-builder.php

2. This issues with the input are because of your child theme, the ’#check’ styles are not coming through because of this.

Cheers!

Hi tobias,

I bought the theme I’m very happy with it ….

Just one question …

Is their an easy way to change the option of border color to background color. I would like to have a filled background behind the text blocks.

Tnx for the help!

Kind regards

Tommy

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Yeah really easy, just add a little custom CSS to your ‘custom CSS’ area of the theme options;

.element { background: red !important; }
.element.load-more { background: orange !important; }

Cheers!

1 additional question …

Text blocks …. Can I make a 2/2 block? Is this custom work?

Tommy

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

That would be custom work, but if you need a slightly taller text box, use the full width one, it has a variable height so you can use lots of text in it :)

Cheers!

What would be the cost?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

No need, I’ll add this to my development list for the next theme update.

Cheers

Got the theme up and running (http://thiscircularparade.com) ... just had a couple of questions.

Was wondering if you had any preferences for social sharing plugins? My concern is that they might “break” the responsive nature of the site when viewed on mobile devices.

Also curious what it would take to change the icons on the blog posts? i.e. for single image and/or gallery posts, change the icon to a camera. Am sure I could do this myself, just curious as to where to look in theme code and where icons came from.

Lastly, as a development thought… what are chances of adding a dedicated “advertising” block to the TG Page Builder?

Thanks much.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Just try a few out :) i know that the ‘Jetpack’ plugin comes with a sharing function, & there’s always zillashare.

If you open up the /images/ folder in your theme you’ll see all the icons, just replace them with icons of the same name and the theme will do the rest (keep the sizes the same also)

As for advertising, have you tried dropping your code into one of the text blocks and then disabling auto-paragraphs on the text block?

Cheers!

Hi, had to take a break with a family emergency but back to work on the site.

I am using the selective homepage. With the main page alone loaded, I see my grid as I’d like with no blog posts which is good. However, when “Home” is clicked, the address is appended with ”#filter=*” and the blog posts show up on the homepage (which is bad). Am I doing something wrong or is there a fix for this?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Change the URL in your ‘home’ link to;

#filter=.home

Cheers! :)

Default-user

Thank you!

When I changhe the color for in the footer title than also changhe the body text color. How can I changhe the text color in the footer and not in the body?

The link is: www.cestbeau-multimedia.nl/wordpress

Thanks.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you want to change the two independently then you’ll need to edit styles.php in your theme files which is just a basic CSS file with a tiny bit of PHP.

Otherwise I’ll consider some additional colour controls for the next update.

Cheers!

Okay and how can i changhe the language in de contact form en Load more projects by the portfolio?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can use the included .po file, or you can check out these files;

/inc/page-builder/blocks/aq-contact-form-block.php

/inc/page-builder/blocks/aq-portfolio-block.php

Hi,

Great support .. Just still some questions.

1. Can I add links in the text blocks. 2. If you hover the team members block I see a quote but I want to put there some regular text without the – ” – where can I delete this quotitionmark?

Kind regards, Tommy

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Yeah, just drop them in with HTML;

<a href="http://www.your-site.com">link text</a>

2. You can delete the quotation marks in /inc/page-builder/blocks/aq-team-block.php on line 125, change it from this;

<div class="hover-content"><span class="blockquote">" <?php echo get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_cmb_the_team_quote', true ); ?> "</span></div>

to this;

<div class="hover-content"><span class="blockquote"><?php echo get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_cmb_the_team_quote', true ); ?></span></div>

Cheers

hi there! i would like to purchase this template. what is your charge to install ? also, are the colors changeable? aj(at)fishfryatl.com

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. All the colours in the template are modifiable using the included theme options, you can create whatever colour scheme you wish.

2. I’m afraid that at this time I’m unable to offer services to install themes as I’m far too busy with too many projects! :) Sorry!

All the best

Tom

I know it’s possible to disable titles on portfolio items. Is it possible to disable titles on Team Members section as well?

tommusrhodus

I’m updating the theme tomorrow, I’ll make sure that I add this as an option in the theme options.

Cheers :)

Default-user

Awesome! I owe you!

Hi,

Really like the look of the theme, but I have to admit, I’m struggling with it. And sorry, I couldn’t find my licence code to add a support ticket.

My first problem is why I can’t set the page to three column format. When I look at it on an ipad, it comes out as two, regardless of whether it’s set to three or even four columns in the customise TG page.

Your demo page comes out as three columns on this ipad, so it’s not that.

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you’re having issues, I’d recommend starting fresh with a clean install of the theme & importing my demo data. There’s an update on it’s way with video demos in the documentation, or you can watch them here;

http://www.screenr.com/user/tommusrhodus

I recommend a clean install with my demo data, once you’ve got the site going nicely, then start converting the content to your own :)

Cheers

tommusrhodus

P.S If you need more help, leave a support ticket, the image showing where to find your code has been updated today to be accurate, before today & earlier on today the image was pointing to the old license location, I’ll be away for 4 days now so won’t be able to answer your questions here, but my support team will help you on the tickets.

Cheers

Default-user

Many thanks for the support- that’s great. I’ll try a fresh install and watch the vids.

thanks!

Twitter doesnt post my twitts on website from The TG page builder component. ANy idea why?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Make sure you’re using the most up to date version of TheGrid, the old Twitter API has been retired, I’ve issued updates to the theme to integrate a new Twitter solution for the (horrible) new Twitter API. Once you upgrade you should receive a message in your WP dashboard regarding this.

2. Grab the latest version from your account, there’s details about the above in the documentation.

Cheers!

Hello,

we wanted to put our site online and when we transfer it from the sub directory to the root map, portfolio and team members stopped working.

http://cestbeau-multimedia.nl/

thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

This isn’t an issue with the theme, but likely you might have not refreshed your permalinks when moving your install over.

Head to “Settings” => “Permalinks” and hit save changes to refresh your internal linking structure.

Cheers

Hello, how do you see the videos with lightbox, In the portfolio.?

tommusrhodus

Ok then, as I said, if you want a slideshow on the homepage you’ll need to extend the theme to do this, theGrid doesn’t include this functionality by default.

Also, you don’t have a purchased badge on this account, so please contact me by the account which purchased theGrid.

Cheers

Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. Very friendly. I am the administrator of the purchaser, William Hicklin. Regards.

Hi Tommus:

Kudos on a great WP Theme. I would like to know if you would provide some assistance in duplicating the feature in this WP theme that you have working in the HTML5 version you just released.

Would you send me some code and file names long with some general instructions on animating the SECTION INTRO blocks. In the HTML5 version, this block is a clickable filter that coincides with the main nav filter. Its a really great feature. I have been digging through the PHP file and isotope files but nut sure how to execute it.

I am an intermediate PHP guy so foundational code with file names and general instructions should suffice.

If you need my email address to send let me know.

Thanks TR

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Do you mean the feature introduced in ‘AR – The Architect’ by PPandP?

Assuming you do, you can create filter links literally with a standard anchor tag;

<a href="#filter=.portfolio">Text</a>

Using this you could easily add this to the blocks in /inc/page-builder/blocks/ if you wanted, or just add it as HTML inside you text-boxes.

Cheers!

Hi,

I have problems with TheGrid & Explorer 8 and 9 :( . If you try to access with this browsers, they crash. No problem with Firefox, Explorer 10 nor Chrome.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Try disabling all your plugins / extensions / widgets, this is not a problem with the base theme (check by demo) and is likely to be caused by a plugin or extension, or perhaps even a server setting.

If you have managed hosting then consider contacting your hosting support team to have a quick check of your server logs, if there’s something going wrong then they’ll see it!

Cheers

I have change request in new version. (And Tips for your new theme) :)

1. Adding translation (in po. file) for contact form. There is no translation for this important item in translation file PO, and after update theGrid theme i need change it manualy again.

2. Adding main fonts as latin-extended.

3. Adding translation in file .PO for (Blog) Comments, Posts, Comment form etc. Now must change it manualy after your update theme

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Thanks for these points :)

The forms should be in the .po file, but clearly there’s a problem somewhere, I’ll look into this.

All the best

Tom

Hello Tommus, is it possible to create a block which is visible on every filtered page?

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Assuming you’re using the selective homepage so that you can hide elements on first load, you could just create multiple instances of the same block assigned to the differing sections.

Or you could convert one of the custom filter names to use all the filter names you want the block to appear in, seperated by a space. e.g;

services about contact

And then select that option in the page-builder, that would probably be the easiest way of doing this.

Cheers!

Thank You! Works!
