Hello, I am trying to figure out how to make the Articles shortcode display the articles in 1 column rather than it splitting them into multiple columns depending on how many posts you want to show. Also How would i add a “READ MORE” button to the articles displayed with the shortcode? Thanks.

ShakespeareThemes

Hello and thanks for purchase!

1.) Add this to Custom CSS in Theme Options:

.various-content .st-articles .item-list > * {  float: none; margin: 60px 0 0; width: auto; }
.various-content .st-articles .item-list > *:first-child {  margin: 0; }

2.)Open the file “wp-content/plugins/shakespeare-toolkit-theseus/shortcode-generator/shortcodes/articles.php” and add a new line after line 348. Add the following code at that line:

$html .= '<p><a href="' . get_permalink() . '" class="st-button bg-color1 normal">MORE</a></p>';

Hope it helps. Lubos.

Pre-purchase question.

My client has a rather large logo that they would like to use. Is it possible to use it in the slider as one slide only so it doesn’t rotate and still be clickable? Also, I’m assuming if that can be done the logo area in the header can be left blank?

Default-user

Also, can the Title bar height be changed? It’s a bit too tall for my liking.

Default-user

Sorry, another question. On the Portfolio page can we add text excerpts to the images or are only images allowed?

ShakespeareThemes

Hello. Yes, you can have just one slide with a clickable big image. Then you can hide logo in header with some custom CSS (or upload a blank GIF/PNG as logo). You can also change height of title bar with some Custom CSS (easily by inserting it to Theme Options in Admin). Just let me know when you will be needing it and I will paste the code here. Lubos.

Default-user

Thanks for the fast reply! Can we put social media links in the logo space in the header instead of a logo?

ShakespeareThemes

It should be possible, but it will need some HTML/CSS/WP knowledge to achieve this.

Default-user

Okay, one last question. Can the slider with the logo be used on every page so they all look the same?

ShakespeareThemes

There are two types of slider: 1.) A basic one which is added through shortcode, so it can be added to any page. 2.) A background slider – this is the slider from home page. It is defined by page template. There are multiple page templates, not all supports background slider, but it is possible to create a site where the background slider will be displayed on all pages.

Default-user

Okay, thank you! Oh, what about the question I had regarding the Portfolio page and text excerpts?

ShakespeareThemes

Sorry I have missed that. Only images by default. But it shouldn’t be too hard to changing a code little bit to display also some text.

Default-user

Okay. Is that something you can help with?

ShakespeareThemes

I will be able to help you with some small code snippet but you will need to style it on your own. But as you can see, portfolio list really wasn’t designed with such functionality in mind so it can cause problems especially on smaller screens.

I just purchased the theme and was wondering why there are no pre-defined pages included? The only page that’s included is a sample page. No home pages, contact pages, portfolio pages, etc. Why is that?

ShakespeareThemes

Hello and thanks for purchase. I am not sure if I understand. There is a XML file inside package with all the demo pages. Or do you mean something else?

Default-user

Ah, I missed the XML file. Do we import that via the Import/Export options section of the Theme Options?

Default-user

Never mind, I got it. Thanks and my apologies for the confusion.

ShakespeareThemes

No problem. Just watch the video tutorial in documentation and drop any questions here. Hope you will like the theme.

I’ve created and configured a page titled Our Portfolio. I’ve added the page to the Menu and it links correctly. However, when I click on a portfolio item and it goes to the individual portfolio page the breadcrumbs show Home>Portfolio instead of Home>Our Portfolio and when I click on Portfolio (in the breadcrumbs) it takes me to an entirely different Portfolio page than the Our Portfolio page.

How can I make it link to the Our Portfolio page in the breadcrumbs? Where is this other Portfolio page? I’ve looked everywhere and can’t see it.

Thanks,

AP

ShakespeareThemes

Hi, this is unfortunately how its working as this theme supports unlimited numbers of portfolios. Link in breadcrumbs leads to something like index. It is possible to change it by hardcoding your custom links. Open the file “includes/breadcrumb.php” and search for ' . get_post_type_archive_link( 'portfolio' ) . '. Replace this with your custom link. For example this line:

elseif ( is_singular( 'portfolio' ) ) { echo '<a href="' . get_post_type_archive_link( 'portfolio' ) . '">' . __( 'Portfolio', 'theseus' ) . '</a> / <span>' . get_the_title() . '</span>'; }

Should look like this:

elseif ( is_singular( 'portfolio' ) ) { echo '<a href="http://example.com/your-portfolio">' . __( 'Portfolio', 'theseus' ) . '</a> / <span>' . get_the_title() . '</span>'; }

There are multiple occurrences of this in that file so remember to replace all of them. Lubos

Default-user

Thanks, that worked. It still says Portfolio instead of Our Portfolio on the individual portfolio page. I tried changing it in the breadcrumb.php file but regardless of what I tried it broke the site so I just left it as it is.

Is there a way to add a background slider to the top of the individual portfolio pages? There isn’t an option to enable it in the Project page editor like other pages.

Thanks,

AP

ShakespeareThemes

If you want to change label then edit this:

' . __( 'Portfolio', 'theseus' ) . '

to this:

Our Portfolio

in breadcrumb.php. So the whole previous example will look like this:

elseif ( is_singular( 'portfolio' ) ) { echo '<a href="http://example.com/your-portfolio">Our Portfolio</a> / <span>' . get_the_title() . '</span>'; }

Unfortunately, Background Slider can be used only on standard pages by default. Technically it should be possible to show it also on portfolio items, but that will require some advanced coding and you will need to hire a freelancer to do that. Lubos

Default-user

Thanks for all your help!

Another question.

On the new Our Portfolio page I’ve noticed the Portfolio Categories filters aren’t showing. Is that because it’s a different page than what the original is? Is there a way to get the filters to show?

The shortcode I’ve used on the Our Portfolio page is:

‘[portfolio portfolio_category=”none” title=”SOME OF OUR WORK” layout=”grid_3” show_category_filter=”show” show_project_title=”show” show_project_categories=”show” number_of_items=”6”]’

Thanks,

AP

ShakespeareThemes

Make sure that there are some categories in portfolio and that portfolio projects are assigned to categories. Feel free to share link to your live site (if possible), maybe I will be able to see something that way. Lubos

Default-user

I’ve added four categories and have assigned the projects to their respective categories but the filters still aren’t showing. I’ve added a video as well and the thumbnail, if that’s what you call it, isn’t showing on the Our Portfolio page. Only the title and category are showing. It does show on the individual page though.

http://www.browndogco.com

ShakespeareThemes

Problem is that you first need to create first level category. For example I have “Design” in my demo and then give it a sub categories (“app”, “themes”, “web design”). When you add a shortcodes for portfolio, you select a “Design” category, so its sub categories will be shown.

Default-user

Okay, that worked. Thanks. How about the issue with the video thumbnails not showing?

ShakespeareThemes

That’s some bug. Open the “library/js/scripts.js” file, Make a backup of it and go to line 1370 and change this:

});

To this:

}); thepage.reload_fluid_videos();

Same for lines 1378, 1397 and 1405. If that won’t help, then you will need to wait for a proper update later this week.

Default-user

Changed all the lines you mentioned and nothing changed. I still don’t get a video thumbnail. Should I revert back to the original scripts.js file?

ShakespeareThemes

Better yes. Will take a look at it as soon as possible and will do an update.

Default-user

That would be great. My client isn’t too happy that there’s no thumbnail showing for the videos.

Thanks,

The submenu is not working in IE9 and IE10. www.bloxopslag.nl

The submenu unfold in Chrome and Firefox. but not in IE.

Is there a fix?

Thanks, Hans

ShakespeareThemes

I have sent you an email. Microsoft obviously did some changes to rendering engine of IE, I will release an update as soon as possible.

The Fix is working! Thanks a lot :)

The drop down menu used on an iPad/tablet does not work..is there a fix?

ShakespeareThemes

Hello. Does this issue occur on both the demo and your installation? I am checking the top menu in the demo on my iPod Touch 5g right now and it works in both Safari and Chrome. Feel free to share link to your site.

Lubos

Default-user

The drop downs in the main menu on an ipad do not work on your demo either.

ShakespeareThemes

Try the following fix:

Open the “style.css” file which can be found in the root directory of the theme. Search for @media (max-width: 979px) { and replace it with @media (max-width: 1024px) {

Default-user

Thanks that worked. One more question…how can I get the the toolbar in the header to always be open even on the mobile and tablet versions…so in other words turn off the toggle and keep it visible?

ShakespeareThemes

Add this to Custom CSS (in Theme Options):

.header-drawer { display: block; }
.drawer-toggle { display: none; }
.header-toggle-mobile { display: none; }
Default-user

thanks for the quick response…that does hide the toggle option but the actual toolbar is not showing on mobile versions…ideas?

ShakespeareThemes

Sorry, I have missed that you want it only for mobile/tablet version, in that case add the following code (remove previous one):

@media (max-width: 1024px) {
header-toolbar { display: block; }
.header-drawer { display: block; }
header-toggle-mobile { display: none; }
}
Default-user

worked! thanks.

Excellent theme! I do have a question regarding the Portfolio though.

When I try and set number_of_items to “All” it sits there with the spinning graphic to indicate it is loading but never loads. Both the Portfolio and the Twitter feed have this graphic and never finish loading. If I set number_of_items to number_of_items=”10” or less it works just fine. I only have a total of 36 Portfolio items to display.

Also, I haven’t been able to get the breadcrumbs and filtering options at the top to show. Not sure if I need to enable them anywhere other than in the line below.

Here is the short code for the portfolio page:

[portfolio portfolio_category=”none” layout=”masonry_4” show_category_filter=”show” show_project_title=”show” show_project_categories=”show” number_of_items=”10”]

Thanks a million! :)

ShakespeareThemes

Hi and thanks for purchase.

If you set number of project to “All” and it actually shows them all but there is still this loading animation present, then it is indeed weird, but you can get rid of this animation by adding this code to Custom CSS in Theme Options:

.st-portfolio-projects .loading-anim { display: none!important; }

You can also try to set the number of items to let’s say 1000 (please try this solution first, only if this won’t work use the Custom CSS solution).

If the loading animation keeps playing in the Twitter feed, it is likely that you haven’t set your Twitter feed correctly in Theme Options. Please check if your Twitter App credentials are correct.

To show the filtering options for the portfolio, you first need to create a Top Level category. All other categories (which will be displayed in the filter) must be children of that category. Then when you will be adding portfolio category through the shortcode generator, choose this Top Level category in the Category drop down.

Not sure about the breadcrumbs issue, breadcumbs section is a solid part of each page so it should be displayed everywhere.

The map on our Contact Us page no longer shows. I’ve checked using Google Chrome and Firefox (both for Mac) and IE9 on a PC. In IE9 a message now appears that says,

“this content cannot be displayed in a frame”

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks,

AP

ShakespeareThemes

Hello, it still works on the demo. Try to generate a new link.

Default-user

I generated a new link and while the container for the map is there the map doesn’t show. It was working when the site was built but isn’t now.

ShakespeareThemes

send me a link to your page through the contact form on my profile page please.

Is there any way on the Portfolio List page to automatically show the project details that normally appear when rolling over the image to display all the time? I’d like to see the project name and details without having to roll over the item. I’ve been struggling with the CSS and looking through the functions but no luck :P.

Thanks again for your help!

Also, when on the Portfolio details page how can I add content to extend the width of the page? When there are images on the left or right side of the page the text content I enter for that page goes to the opposite side of the pictures. It never places it below the pictures (so it seems to set the page up in columns).

I would like to put content below the pictures and span across the whole page for each portfolio item.

Thank you so much again!

ShakespeareThemes

Hi,

1.) ad portfolio list:
to show thumb details without hovering, add this to Custom CSS in Theme Options:

.st-portfolio-projects .thumb-container .project-info {
display: block!important;
opacity: 1!important;
bottom: 1px;
}

2.) ad displaying content under images in portfolio detail:
when editing a portfolio project in Admin, there is a “Project Media Position” option at the bottom. Set it to “Top”.

Thank you so much again. That worked beautifully.

The only one thing that I would like to change is that the Portfolio Categories and folder icon still show up in a column on the left side under the main portfolio images. Is there a way to take this out or place them centered under the pictures? Would I need to update the code in the single-portfolio.php page?

Thank you so much again for the great product and support!

Share a link to your site please (to the page where I can see the issue). thanks
