Great theme!

Couple of questions before buying though:

1- Is it possible to set default appearance to full width on homepage (by full width i mean the appearance without timeline)

2- Is it possible to add the two more links near the view project button on each post on homepage? (preferably the shortcode ones you provide with the theme)

3-If goes like planned, im going to post thousands of posts into the website, so im wondering how it’ll all look on the homepage, will there be lots of pages or only one page with enormous amount of content:)?

Thank you very much for your interest.

Setting the timeline to full width on load is currently not possible. I can however implement this in the next update.

The “View Project” link is nothing more than a more tag link. Unfortunately you are only able to add links above but not next to it.

The timeline is not a blog replacement but rather a different way of showing your work. Pagination is not supported so you would have all posts on one page which is definitely not recommended.

I just bought the theme. Great work. My image uploads (logo and favicon) aren’t working. The Timeline defaults keep showing up. I can change it manually, but that’s a drag. Was wondering if other folks have had that issue.

Serifly

Thank you very much for your purchase.

Would you mind sending me a link via email to your WordPress site so I can have a look?

Images are not supported of last timeline item widget http://hainaim.cafe24.com/
Serifly

This is not an error but rather a restriction.

The timeline widget only works when you upload the images yourself or reselect them in the timeline. The imported demo content is being retrieved from my server and unfortunately doesn’t provide the necessary thumbnail for the widget.

Just set up the timeline with your own content and the widget will work.

Hi – like the clean optic a lot. I guess it is possible to have a start-page like the “about” page, right?

And would it be possible to get twitter-posts automatically posted on the blog section (must than be headline only without text I guess)

And the size of the Logobox in the upper right is flexible – so if I would add a larger logo this would not be a problem?

Serifly

Thank you very much for your interest.

Yes, you can set any static or post page you would like as your front page. Automatically posted tweets are unfortunately not possible. You can only display them with the given widget.

The logo can be up to 60 pixels in height and is theoratically not limited in its width. You will however have to look out that it won’t break the navigation layout.

Hello,

Working with the theme currently and had a question about the timeline itself. Would there be a way I could display images in the timeline outside of the slider? In other words, disable the slider for images in the timeline page only so they appeared more like a gallery of images.

thanks…

Serifly

Thank you very much for your purchase.

You could always display a gallery manually by adding pictures in columns. If you want I could set up an example page for you. There is however currently an error where the timline sidebar won’t work without the slider. This will be fixed with an update I am planning on submitting tonight.

Hi Serifly -

Excellent theme! I have a couple of questions …

1. I can see that my site title is shown 2 times in the browser title, can you tell me how to fix that?

2. Can you let me know how you made the header menu remain static (on the page without moving when the page scrolls)? I have another site which I would like to to that to, but I’m using my own theme for that site.

Thanks, Chris

Serifly

Thank you very much for your purchase.

Is your title always shown twice in the browser bar? This should normally not happen. By default it shows the title of your site and additionally the title of your current page or post. Did you maybe name a page exactly like your site? If you want you can send me your url via email and I will have a look at it.

To let a container scroll with the content you have to set its position to fixed. Assuming you are using the id “header” you have to do someting like this.

#header {
    position: fixed;
}

If some elements are still shown on top of your header you have to set the property “z-index” to a higher value.

Thanks for your quick reply and help with the fixed header (I’ll try that out).

With regards to the site title, yes it appears to show up on every page, I haven’t named any pages with the domain name in them and I can’t see anywhere that I might have added the title twice. You are very welcome to take a look at http://4site.dk

Serifly

I was just about to submit the newest update. I will quickly implement an option to leave the page title style to the user. You will then be able to display an alternative title from the theme options.

Just purchased the theme and installed it on my site. I am still configuring it, but for me the CAPTCHA images do not show up. I am using version 1.2, which should have fixed it, I think?

Any ideas, where I should look?

Serifly

Thank you very much for your purchase.

Are you by any chance using a plugin? There might be the possibility that a plugin is corrupting the image data preventing it from being displayed. I will look into it again and try to resolve it.

In the meantime you can safely disable the captcha. The contact form should be protected against random spam even without the captcha.

Quick question, what lightbox ‘zoom’ library are you using? Is it Prettyphoto? Can’t seem to find the .js file for it. Thanks.

Serifly

Almost everything including the zoom is custom coded for the theme using the jQuery frameworks. Are you missing a feature or are you just curious?

I prefer creating those things myself so I know where to look in case a problem arises.

Default-user

I see, yea I was curious as I like this lightbox more than others I have seen. I was just trying to dig into the .js files to try to learn how it was done. Nice work on it, man.

Hi Serifly -

Any news on the update. I’d really like to remove that double heading.

Thanks, Chris

Serifly

I released an update about a week ago which includes a function to disable the automated title in the theme options panel. Please install the newest version, navigate to “Appearance – Theme Options – General” and check “Alternative Title” to set all titles manually. I hope it will help.

Please follow me on Twitter if you want to be notified when a new update is available.

Oh, thanks Serifly, I didn’t realise the update was already released so quickly. I have downloaded it now. Should I just upload over the existing zip file or should I FTP directly?

Serifly

How you update doesn’t really matter. You can activate the default WordPress theme and reinstall the Timeline theme via the zip file or use FTP to replace the complete folder. Either way should work.

Hello. I bought the theme. I’m happy it’s great. But I’m really worried about a need I have.

The search form is not returning timeline results. Only page results. How can I fix this? :crying:

Serifly

The search currently works only for blog posts because of the different style items are being displayed in the timeline. I will think about a solution for the next update.

Hi Serifly,

I bought this theme and i have two question for you. How many timeline posts can their been shown on the timeline. My intention is to post 100 or more projects on the timeline. Will there be a (next page) appear or will they post all at on one page?

My second question: Is it posible to open timeline tags? If it isn’t.. can you please insert this feature in the next update?

Thanks, Jan-Willem

Serifly

Thank you very much for your purchase.

There is currently no pagination so I strongly recommend to maybe combine projects if possible. Images are being loaded on demand but 100 projects could slow down your site.

What exactly do you mean by open timeline tags? I would be happy to find a solution for your problem and add it to the next update.

Hi. I like a lot this theme and i was planning to buy it. I have some questions first i havent read yet. Thanks for your answers.

1. Can I put a video un the timeline instead of the slider and the lightbox? 2. Can you quit the header with words in the Blog page for example?

Thank you and congratulations for the theme!

Serifly

Thank you very much for your interest.

Yes, you can use every element as shown on the page “Shortcodes” also in timeline items. It will however place all content below the title. Only the slider is shown above it.

I don’t know if you noticed but you can also link to videos from the slider. Just use a screenshot of your video in the slider and link your Youtube or Vimeo video to it. As soon as you click the screenshot it will display the video in a lightbox. Please click on the very first image in the theme preview to see a demo.

The large header is not displayed by default and has to be set up for every page individually.

Hello:

I want to change the font size.

How Do I?

Serifly

Thank you very much for your purchase.

The theme uses different font sizes for different elements and depending on which screen resolution is set. That is the reason why I didn’t implement a switch to change the font size.

If you however are familiar with CSS you could go to “Appearance – Theme Options – Styling” and enter your own definitions in “Custom CSS”. Something like this for example would change most elements.

body
{
    font-size: 14px;
}

Another question, I want to hide the tags and other menu items when viewed on mobile version.

I can do that? how I do it?

Greetings!

Serifly

Unfortunately you can currently only hide the tags for all versions.

You could however set your own CSS media rule. Use the following definition and just modify the screen width dimensions for the devices you don’t want to show tags with.

@media only screen and (min-width: 320px) and (max-width: 479px)
{
    .timeline .element .content ul.tags
    {
        display: none;
    }
}

Hi Serifly -

I have added a member of our team (as Editor) to my site, but when she logs in the Pages menu is not available (only posts, media, etc.) Is there a way I can also let her see posts?

Thanks, Chris

P.S. – The responsive function doesn’t work in IE8 (just letting you know).

Serifly

Unfortunately the menus are considered a sensitive setting of a WordPress installation and are therefore only editable by an Administrator. You could however try to use a plugin which changes user permissions.

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-role-editor/

The responsive design is only available on newer browsers. Because IE8 is not available on any smaller modern device this should not be a problem.
