-How do I add an embed video to the top of the post above the title that’s not Vimeo? There must be a way to do this. -Also, I must be missing something, but how can I create a grid layout on the homepage? It’s defaulting to a category page style.

EugeneO

1.) Select the Video post format on the post edit screen and then add the video’s page URL to the top of the post content. It will only work with supported oEmbed providers and self hosted MP4 files.

2.) Refer to the documentation. There is a section explaining home pages. Also see this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page

How do we add videos to the right sidebar on a single post page? What are the different methods we can add videos to that right sidebar? We think it looks beautiful but are using AOL and JW Players, so unsure how to go about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EugeneO

If you are referring to the Latest Videos list then you must enable the Latest Videos sidebar in the theme options. The theme will then automatically output the latest posts that have the Video post format.

We’d like to do a takeover, like this:

https://www.google.nl/search?q=takeover&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=xvt9U5XpHaelyAOhj4HgDA&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ#q=website+takeover&tbm=isch

How do we change the background image on the homepage? And is there a way to make the background clickable?

EugeneO

I can’t provide the code to do that. In theory you want to set a absolute or fixed position background image on the page using CSS and then either an absolute/fixed position anchor to make the background clickable or use JS to add the click event directly to the background element.

Default-user

We’ll try that, cheers. Thx for responding so quickly!

One the post page sidebar, how it has latest videos, latest posts, and widget area, is there a way we can switch out the small icon button or buttons? For example, the widget area sidebar icon is the 3 line icon; being able to switch that out with an in-house icon we have created?

Thanks in advance.

EugeneO

Change the icon using CSS. You would need to change the class on the icon’s span in the sidebar-post.php template and then apply your own CSS to it.

How do I put a banner ad at the top of the homepage whether the template is in traditional or grid mode, similar to your example? The top homepage ad function puts the ad under the featured posts. Also if I need to update this template will my previous content be affected? Like will I have to re-create and organize the posts.

Example: http://redirect.eugeneo.com/?theme=wirepress-wp
EugeneO

You add the advertising widget or text widget containing the adverting image to the corresponding widget area. I think the one you are looking for is “Home Page Header Ad Space”.

All the available widget areas are shown on the live preview. If you feel an advertising area is missing from your version try updating the theme. When customizing themes you should be using a Child Theme. If you have made changes to the core theme files then the changes will be lost if you update the theme as the theme files are overwritten.

Default-user

So download the theme over, only upload the child theme, and leave the parent theme alone?

Default-user

Fixed… Thanks so such. I will keep recommending people specifically to you.

Default-user

Hey, I am having some issues with the clicking the header menu. Once the mouse is hovered over the menu, the drop drop comes out. When I trying clicking the tab, it disappears.

Default-user

This happens when the scree is expanded to the max… having 5 images appear on the homepage.

EugeneO

I’m not able to replicate that issue. Please post a link to your site.

EugeneO

Your logo isn’t big enough. Either increase you logo image to a height of at least 60px or add this line of CSS.

.image-logo { height: 60px; }

Also, you need to reduce the length of your site tagline. At the moment it is too long and is breaking the layout.

Wonderful theme Eugene – just one thing I can’t figure;

background images on Pages (rather than posts).

I’ve tried using the custom field wirepress_background_image, but the value doesn’t appear to save. For individual pages I’d like to set a background image, or if I need to set it in style.css I am happy to set it to a solid background colour of black – what would you suggest?

EugeneO

It is not possible to add background images to pages. Only posts can have a background image. You can of course change the background colour using standard CSS but you will also have to give the content area a background colour.

/*---- Page Background ---- */
#wrapper {
background: #000;
}

/*---- Content Background ----*/
body.page .content-holder {
background: #3E3E3E;
}

Hi nice work!

In the standard home page does not display on top the last post any idea?

Thank You

http://goo.gl/RBO7Z3

PD: All my post are video post

EugeneO

You only have one post set as a “featured post” so there is only one displayed at the top of the home page.

Default-user

Ok I got it! thanks a lot!

Default-user

The post set as “featured post” not shown as video post. it’s designed this way?

EugeneO

Yes it is designed that way.

The videos from youtube and vimeo are not responsive, do not display correctly on mobile devices, what can I do to make it 100% responsive?

Thank you http://goo.gl/RBO7Z3
EugeneO

Install a responsive video embed plugin like the one in the recommended plugin list.

Default-user

I’ll take a look at that, thanks for quick response

Default-user

EugeneO

You need to add “body” as the selector in the FitVids plugin settings.

Default-user

When page is loading top menu does not appear at all if you hover over the menu icon. Is there any way to fix that? Working at all times menu is absolutely vital for our page.

EugeneO

It has to be like that or the menu will break after it has loaded because the action will become inverted. The menu will be open by default and close when you hover over.

If the page is taking too long to load it is probably a result of images that have not been optimized.

For anyone trying to disable the floating sidebar on the right of the post that you need to scroll to see the rest of the sidebar content, I think I have found a workaround. Add this to your Custom CSS and change the 948px to whatever height you want:

.sidebar-content-holder { height: 948px!important; }

.sidebar-scroll-container.mCustomScrollbar._mCS_1 { height: 948px!important; }

.sidebar-scroll-container.mCustomScrollbar._mCS_2 { height: 948px!important; }

It would be great to get a confirmation from the Author, as I don’t want to mess up anyone’s theme.

Default-user

I noticed that this change affects the homepage sidebar also, so if you want the change to only affect the posts page, you have to change the class. Go into the sidebar-post.php:

Change: To:

Now in your custom CSS, just use the new Class name .sidebar-content-holder-1

So the Custom CSS should look like this now:

.sidebar-content-holder-1 { height: 1052px!important; top: 0px; }

.sidebar-scroll-container.mCustomScrollbar._mCS_1 { height: 1052px!important; }

.sidebar-scroll-container.mCustomScrollbar._mCS_2 { height: 1052px!important; }

EugeneO

I’m not sure how would be best to remove the sticky sidebar as its tied to some javascript that triggers the stickyfloat plugin itself and also resizes the sidebar. I have obviously managed it as the stickyfloat sidebar does not move on mobile devices but it was many months since I coded. My guess is I too used pure CSS to do it and it would be in the responsive.css stylesheet.

Hi EugeneO, is there a way to add view count to the videos and posts on the frontpage?

EugeneO

No there is no option to show view count. You would have to look for a plugin that counts page views.

Hi there, The wpadminbar is not showing up for me. Do you have a quick way to fix that? We have the recommended plugins activated, plus the Fitvids one for responsive videos.

Thanks

EugeneO

The admin bar is removed for the lowest user group. This is prevent subscribers from accessing your admin dashboard.

To enable it try adding this to the functions.php of a child theme.

function show_admin_bar() {

    if ( function_exists( 'show_admin_bar' ) ) {

        global $user_level;

        get_currentuserinfo();

        if ( $user_level == 0 ) {
            add_action( 'show_admin_bar', '__return_true' );
        }

    }

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'show_admin_bar' );
Default-user

Actually, we found the function disabing wpadminbar and re-enabled it using a filter in the child theme functions file. Also, the theme’s template options do not account for WordPress instances where only the Dashboard is forcing HTTPS (force_ssl_admin). We had to make changes to the parent theme to fix this issue because it was breaking Javascript in the Dashboard disabling the background image upload button.

Default-user

Hey, Just read your response about the wpadminbar. I don’t think your code accounts for SuperAdmins who do not necessarily get added as users to the site in a MU environment.

EugeneO

The admin bar shows for the SuperAdmin account on the live preview of the theme. The admin bar should only removed for the “Subscriber” user role but I think the code I’ve used is obsolute. I will be removing the code that removes the admin bar in the next version and recommending a plugin to handle it instead as it will be a more elegant solution.

Also, the theme’s template options do not account for WordPress instances where only the Dashboard is forcing HTTPS (force_ssl_admin). We had to make changes to the parent theme to fix this issue because it was breaking Javascript in the Dashboard disabling the background image upload button.

What code in the theme was causing the problem? What changes did you make?

Default-user

The following block is where the issue was introduced. Our environment forces SSL on the dashboard but HTTP on the front end—this affords us added security without having to spring for hundreds of SSL certificates. WordPress allows for this via it’s FORCE_SSL_ADMIN constant in wp-config.php.

if (strtoupper(substr(PHP_OS, 0, 3)) === ‘WIN’) {

//winblows

define( ‘CMB_META_BOX_URL’, trailingslashit( str_replace( DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, ’/’, str_replace( str_replace( ’/’, DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, WP_CONTENT_DIR ), WP_CONTENT_URL, dirname(FILE) ) ) ) );

} else {
define( 'CMB_META_BOX_URL', apply_filters( 'cmb_meta_box_url', trailingslashit( str_replace( WP_CONTENT_DIR, WP_CONTENT_URL, dirname( FILE ) ) ) ) );
}

We resolved the issue by commenting out the above block and replacing it with

define(“CMB_META_BOX_URL”, get_template_directory_uri() . ”/inc/template-options/”);

We are running a linux server, but I don’t see why the same formula wouldn’t work on windows as well.

Default-user

We are also noticing another bug where featured posts do not display video, but non-featured posts do. I’m not sure if this how it’s supposed to operate but it appears to be contradictory to the documentation.

EugeneO

Videos are displayed on Featured Posts but they are not moved to above the content as they are on normal posts.

Is there any way to utilize the grid layout for categories?

And is there also a way to handpick specific posts using the grid layout besides just the latest posts?

Default-user

Also, how to disable social media share/comment that floats on the left?

EugeneO

1.) You would have to copy the home-grid.php template into a child theme. Then rename it archive.php and adjust the WP loop query. You would just need the default query.

2.) You would have to use the query arguments to pick out specific posts by their ID. Again this would be best in a custom template file made by copying home-grid.php into a child theme.

3.) Copy single.php into a child theme and delete the .post-share-buttons div and it’s contents.

What do you mean by adjust the loop query? I’ve already made a copy of the home-grid, just not sure what to do after. Can you send me an email about what to do exactly or are you fine with sharing here?
