Hi..

Thanks for the great theme…

I have a question, how can I change the font size of the content? My trying always failed….

Thanks for the answer

SaurabhSharma

Hello kezunn,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

If you wish to change entire body copy font size, you can add this rule at the end of style.css file:

body { font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5 }

If only for the page/post content, you can add this rule:

.content { font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.5 }

Or if there is any specific section, kindly send me the site/page URL. I will suggest appropriate CSS.

I have several of these entries on my PHP error log which I hope to solve. Could you advise me what it means, and how to solve?

PHP Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /public_html/wp-content/themes/volt/includes/breadcrumbs.php on line 56

WP 3.4.2 PHP 5.3.3

SaurabhSharma

Hello ceopenup,

Kindly send me the site link or page on which you are getting this error. The line no. 56 of breadcrumbs.php displays category parent of an attachment page. I can tell more if I look at the URL.

I’ve followed all the instructions but images aren’t showing, I’ve made sure that all the folder permissions are correct, i’m using the volt folder

Any ideas?

max99 Purchased

ha think i’ve worked it out again :)

SaurabhSharma

Hello max99,

There is a padding on .brand selector for logo image. You can add this rule at the end of style.css file for adjusting padding:

.brand { padding: 20px 0 } /* assigns 20px on top and bottom */

There is also a bottom margin on header widget area, which causes gap between the header area and menu. This can be controlled as:

.header_widget_area { padding: 20px 0 }

If the width of logo is larger than 200px, the header widget area may drop on next line, causing more gap. For that, you can reduce the width of header widget area as:

.header_widget_area { width: 460px } /* earlier it was 780px */

I hope these will help.

Brilliant, thank you, Awesome theme so far! Final Question is, i’ve got the theme set like the preview, how would I make the large image of the featured post clickable thru to the post. i.e the slider images i.e on live demo the pictures of lego, a mac, linkedin logo, magazines

SaurabhSharma

Hello max99,

Slider images are not clickable. But they can be made clicakble by changing the shortcode markup. Inside includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file, the slider is coded in slider() function. If you haven’t made any changes to this file, kindly drop me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com, mentioning which theme format you are using. (Timthumb or non-timthumb). I will send you the fix.

We love this theme! I do have one question, though. We’re using the Volt Content Slider in the default header bar, and it’s the only thing we’ve put it in that slot.

When the page loads, it shows all our slides before it actually loads as a slide show. Is there a way to make it stop doing that? Really, it’s the only drawback we’ve found, so far.

The site is reachkeep.com.

SaurabhSharma

Hello TannimQ,

Thanks for the kind feedback.

The overlapping can be prevented by assigning a fixed height to the slider. Since the content may have any height, I haven’t assigned a fixed value to it. In your case, the images are of fixed 434px height. So you can add this rule at the end of style.css file:

.header_widget_area ul.cs_slider { height: 434px }

This shall fix the issue.

Most excellent. Thanks. Where are the settings for image sizes? In the main content area, pics are close to 1:1. In sidebar A, they’re about 4:3 and in B they’re closer to 16:9. Is there a way to set it so the pics are the same size and aspect ratio, no matter where we put them?

SaurabhSharma

Hello TannimQ,

Image view ports are different for different locations. For example, a slider is more landscape whereas blog images are squared. Some cropping will occur across these view ports. In order to make the same proportion, it will be required to edit many core files like templates, widgets, short codes, etc. I can provide you these changes, but they won’t be good in terms of future updates. Kindly let me know if I can help.

Regards

In the preview for the theme there are lists that have thumbnails like TRENDINGthisweek what shortcode would I insert in order to get a title and list like TRENDINGthisweek is on the sample?

^Nevermind, I figured it out.

SaurabhSharma

Hello jdelodovici,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. You can find the sample data inside your_download_zip/volt/dummy_data/ folder. I hope you have already found it. :)

Regards

Your theme looks great, before purchase, i would like to know i) if we can remove the date of blog post? ii) the thumbnail in the blog post list is default or picked up? Cause my site have some latex, I wonder if it will pick up latex as thumbnail cause it looks like awkward. iii) can I add a menu for blog categories selection in front page?

SaurabhSharma

Hello tutornotes,

Yes I will help with CSS and core files (if required). :)

I have two questions that I wanna ask you.

1. The “Volt Popular Posts” widget is ordered by wordpress comments, How can I order it by views, I know I will need a plugin or something to log the views on the site but do you know any good way?

2. I want each sidebar to show up on each category of the posts. for example if i have 3 categories, they will always have there own specific category. (I know you can do it manually on each posts, but is there a way so I don’t need to do that?

Best regards -krizzii

SaurabhSharma

Hello krizzii,

1. As you already know, popular posts is based on most commented posts. It will be required to create a separate widget for Popular posts based on view. You can try these plugins:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-most-popular/
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/

2. Exclusive sidebars are only for pages and posts. Archives and categories will use default sidebar. This is a limitation. But if you create a page using blog template, and use individual categories on them, you can assign exclusive sidebars to each page with archive of specified post category.

Regards

Default-user
krizzii Purchased

Yeah, but how do I change the breadcrumbs thing, so it displays the archive page not the category itself

SaurabhSharma

Hello krizzii,

Kindly send me the URL of that particular archive/category. (May be I didn’t understood your query well).

Archives are based on category, month, author, etc. So if you click on any of these links (category, author name, month, etc). an archive will open, listing all posts based on category, author or date. Breadcrumbs will show text as “Archive by category XXX”, or “Archive by month XXX”. (May be this is you wish to change?)

Regards

One more question, when i use the short code for a three columnar post insert on our static mainpage using a specific category, it isn’t pulling the articles from those categories it’s using our three latest postings instead for each category. Do I need to re-create the categories in essence to get them to work?

www.wrapupp.com

SaurabhSharma

Hello jdelodovici,

Make sure you are providing the numeric category IDs like 3,5,8 etc. and not category slug names as news, sports, etc. If the numeric IDs are provided correctly, short codes will display correct posts from specified categories. If this doesn’t work, kindly send me your WP login and URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check and fix it.

Regards

I’ve uploaded the theme to my server, but it doesn’t seem to be working correctly. Am I doing something wrong?

Hello lawrentian,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

On first load, the theme may not appear as expected. As it still requires configuring menus, widgets areas, posts, etc. May be you will see all widgets inside the header section at first. Those can be removed by navigating to Appearance > Widgets > Default Header Bar.

For startup configuration and theme setup, kindly refer to the documentation/index.html file inside your download ZIP. This involves creating Home page, setting it as front page, and other useful configurations.

If you find any difficulty, kindly drop me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. :)

Where can i set the width of the page, sidebar and header? The sidebar A is in the middle of the screen? Please advise.

Default-user

nice, how about the page width and header width?

Default-user

and sidebar width as well

SaurabhSharma

Hello tutornotes,

All these widths are set inside style.css file’s section 3. Structure. Selectors include container, primary, content, sidebar1, sidebar2, etc. You can change these widths if required.

However, I would recommend keeping the default widths, as this may affect rest of the site elements like short codes, column grids, widgets, etc.

Hey! How do I fix the conflict when I have an archive page that has the same name as a category

for example: Archive page: http://yoursite.com/sports Category: http://yoursite.com/sports <- ( I use plugin to strip the “category” off )

Like in the breadcrumbs there is a link to the category but it wont show the archive page :/

Do you have any solution?

SaurabhSharma

Hello krizzii,

This will depend on the permalink structure. In general, category address looks as ‘yoursite.com/category/cat-name’, while a page address looks as ‘yoursite.com/page-name’. So there is rare chance of conflict.

A conflict arises only when we create custom permalink structure or strip off category name from URL. You can try by disabling any such plugin, and use the permalink structure as provided inside WordPress. :)

Hi SaurabhSharma, I use an iPad app to write in my blog www.geeklino.com. The app name is Poster. There is a problem with the app when I insert an image because if I center it, image is not centered because the code in class style is not as the code in my blog. I wrote to the author of the app, he told me that the problem is in the theme.

When I insert an image in Poster app the code is

Example: **.jpg” align=”centered” width=”254” height=”450” />

But in this case image is not centered. If I insert in the HTML code class=”aligncenter” the image is now centered. Can I solve it in the CSS sheet please?

Can you help me please?

SaurabhSharma

Hello xcloud,

I would recommend using a class name for aligning images. For example, assign a class name to the image as:

<img class="aligncenter" src="..." />

This class is already present inside style.css file as:

.aligncenter, div.aligncenter {
display: block;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
}

So you only need assign the class name. (Further, it’s align=”center”, not “centered” ). :)

Thank you! There is an error in the iPad App! Now I try to use Blogsy to write post!

I’ve used the dummy text layout for the homepage, but now editted etc. I’m having issues with the left hand colum and the right hand categories showing. i.e ‘Lifestyle Personal’ column, only 1 post is showing beneath it instead of the 3 that should do (there are 3 posts in the category)

The code used is [post_list num=”4” cats=”5” offset=”1”]

But only 1 shows, (the left side i.e Health & nutrition on demo’ ) works perfectly

Awesome thank you :) your response to help is top notch too :)

2 more questions (sorry for so many)

1. The featured slider bit on homepage, is there a way to have it featuring certain posts and not categories

2. How do I set homepage so it’s two column and looks like creativeguerrillamarketing .com ,

Default-user

Oh and is there a method to make the blog theme optimised for mobile devices and ipads etc?

SaurabhSharma

Hello max99,

1. For selective posts, you can use this short code:

[slider query_type="posts" posts="12, 132, 145, 298"]

Where posts=”12, 132..” etc are the post IDs of desired posts to show. If you insert the slider using visual short code panel, you will see all options like selective posts, selective pages, tags, etc. This is just an example.

2. For such layout, open / edit your Home page and delete all it’s contents. Next, scroll down to ‘Page Options Panel > Archive and Blog Template Options > Category IDs to fetch posts from’. Provide the desired category IDs to show on this page. (For example: 3, 12, 14). Next, assign a Page Template “Blog – List Style” to it, and update the page. Finally, navigate to ‘Appearance > Volt Options > General > Sidebar Usage for Blog’. Choose ‘sidebar_a’ and save settings.

This will show a list style blog page with right sidebar. But remember, this will also set one sidebar for entire site globally. If you wish to have one sidebar only on Home page, it will be required to modify the blog template. Kindly let me know if that is the case.

3. Currently the theme only comes with 300px mobile version. I will try and make it fully responsive in next updates.

Hi, I purchased your theme, very nice!

What would you suggest to have a logo taking all header size? With current widget in the header (we don’t use it) it seems not possible.

Thanks, Don

SaurabhSharma

Hello Don,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

The logo is of auto width, followed by 730px header widget area. If we remove header widget area, it shall occupy maximum width. For that, open style.css file and add this rule at the end of file:

.brand { float: none; }
.header_widget_area { display: none }

Next, you can replace volt/images/logo.png with around 940px wide banner of same name. I hope this will help.
