Sorry Parker,

Couple of quick questions…

Would it be possible to easily change the height of the works thumbs/description bars?

Also re. the pagination, can this be altered to display as many works as you like?

Thanks again,

JM

Hi Jimmy,

yes, the thumbnails of blog and works can be set to any size (we used the add_image_size function of wordpress, it’s one line of code to edit).

The bars can have any height depending on the thumbnail size and amount of text below the title.

The number of posts/works on each page is configurable through the WP “Blog pages show at most” setting of the Settings -> Reading page of the admin. You can set any number of posts per page.

Great thanks!

ParkerAndKent

You’re welcome ;)

In case you buy, to change the size you have to go into the parkerandkent2011/functions/pk_theme.php file and edit these lines (74, 75):

add_image_size('thumb-blog', 90, 70, true);
add_image_size('thumb-works', 90, 70, true);

Excellent website. I love it. I have two questions for you :

1. I’m not not able to change the logo accordium. Where can I change it?

2. I read your previous comments on changing the height of the description bar but in my case I removed all the thumbnails. So it would just show posts. I want three lines to be visible on my post and not just one line. How can I change this?

Thanks, - Sundar

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

thanks! :)

1: PK Options -> Skin Options (I guess you didn’t read the important notes of the PK Help)

2: Open the parkerandkent2011/functions/theme/pk_filters.php and from line 9 you’ll find:

function pk_blog_subtitle_excerpt_filter($length) {

    return 20;

}

Increase the value 20 (number of words to take from the main content).

Thanks a bunch. That fixed it. One more question. My tweets and facebook numbers on top of my work page is showing random number. How to reset it ? In my posts it automatically got cleared as I created new posts. In works section it is not.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

are you on a localhost? Those values don’t need (they can’t) to be reset, but if you’re on localhost like a million of people that address will result super shared.

yeah. I got it. I was indeed local host. One last question. Can I change the font size and color ? I have a light skin theme on but I need my letters to be bigger and bolder and possibly different font, Thanks for you help.

- Sundar

ParkerAndKent

Hi Sundar,

you’re welcome.

All the CSS styles of your skin are set into the parkerandkent2011/css/theme/pk/pk_light_skin.css.

You should work on this file or add your custom CSS in the PK Options -> General Options page of your admin, where there’s a field for custom CSS styles.

Hi. Is there a way to centre and scale the work images? if i upload a big image it gets cut off. it would be great to centre the image at best and possibly rescale it automatically to the browser size?

can you advise where i would change this?

Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

if you have a latest version and use the “auto add posts images” function you can avoid to add items manually in the gallery manager.

This function automatically adds the resized image in the slider and opens the original/big one with the lightbox.

You can also add lightbox images directly in the manager (check the instructions below it) and so have the cover smaller and the big opened with lightbox.

Actually these are the only ways to display very big images, because the slider images can’t be resized automatically based on the browser’s size.

Hello, I’d like to use this theme as a newspaper, is it possible to have a bar with the categories news, opinion, interviews, and other bar with the categories social, economy, arts, sports?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

if you mean the blog and works categories filters on the top of the pages yes, you can create any type of category without any limit.

Cheers,

Parker

I bought this theme and I really love it.

There’s only one problem: I do not find where to change the thumbnails for the posts. Can you help me?

ParkerAndKent

Hi Doreen,

thanks! :)

Hi,

no worries. The works thumbs have a specific size set and specific thumbs are created. The media settings are generic.

To change the blog thumbs size open the parkerandkent2011/functions/pk_theme.php file and edit this line:

add_image_size('thumb-blog', 90, 70, true);

After the change you will need to upload again the images you have already uploaded to create the new thumbs… you can also use a plugin to regenerate the thumbs (I suggest this options, google about “Regenerate thumbnails plugin”).

Hi guys,

new version released.

Check the changelog.txt to update only the edited files. This new version upgrades the YouTube and the Vimeo embedding to the latest version, able to serve html5 players when flash isn’t supported (iPhone, iPads, etc.).

Guys! Amazing site! My issue is that I am running out of room and wondered if there was a way for the ”+” Slider to default as open when you come to the page and close only if someone clicks on the ”-” sign? I would like to add an opt-in Mail Chimp Widget but also have Pages, so the 1 Menu item on the Home Page is restrictive. My site is www.scavengercolumbus.com

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

for the sidebar open the parkerandkent2011/js/theme/pk/pk_frontend.js file and add this line after line 26:

jQuery(window).resize(); //<- line 26
jQuery("#pk_button_sidebar").click();// <- add this line

Which 1 menu item is restrictive? I don’t get it…

Hi, how can I change the category word, Blog or Work, in another. You can say the name of the file .php and more or less the line to change?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

if you buy a license of the theme I’ll tell you how to do that :)

Thanks Parker! I will attempt to add the code today and cry really loud in front of my co-workers if I get stuck. (I work with a bunch of developers). Anyways, what I meant by the 1 Menu Item is that I don’t think there is a way to add more than 1 “item” to the sidebar under the logo. I have my pages there now, but would add more underneath if I was able. Or, am I not getting something? I would like my logo, then my pages, then maybe Twitter feed or something, then 3 more things in my slider sidebar. That is what I meant…anyways, hope you are having a good weekend!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

the menu bar isn’t a sidebar. The menu is managed by the menu system and the social networks and footer text by the PK Options -> Footer Options.

The only sidebar is the one when you click on the + symbol and there you can add all the widgets you want.

Parker

Ahh, sorry I guess I didn’t understand the difference. Is there any way to add more items (such as widgets) to the Menu Bar? BTW the slider code worked like a charm!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no problem :)

Actually there isn’t any way to add widgets there. What would you like to add?

Is there any way to add the CSS files to the inline WP editor? You can only see your copyright there and it’s also easier to work with on an ipad.. I tend to mess with my blog on the ipad and I can’t get to the css as it is hidden a couple of folders down.

Also, is there anyway to add Quora to the list of social media links? Is there a way to add an icon for other things on our own?

I was also wondering if there was a way to add a widget text box below the social media icons that I can plug in anything there such as a quick about me?

and yes, I have already purchased the theme. Thanks.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

thanks for purchasing :)

Open the parkerandkent2011/css/theme/pk/ folder. Within it there are all the css files. You can copy the pk_style.css, pk_skin_light.css and the pk_skin_dark.css and paste them in the main folder of the theme, where is located the default style.css.

Once moved the files open the parkerandkent2011/functions/theme/pk_setup.php file and edit lines 72 and 76:

wp_register_style('pk_style', PK_THEME_DIR.'/parkerandkent2011/css/theme/pk/pk_style.css');

wp_enqueue_style('pk_skin', PK_THEME_DIR.'/parkerandkent2011/css/theme/pk/'.$skin);

in this way (update the paths):

wp_register_style('pk_style', PK_THEME_DIR.'/pk_style.css');

wp_enqueue_style('pk_skin', PK_THEME_DIR.'/'.$skin);

Save and now the css files will be available in the WP editor.

Regarding the quora icon, that’s not available in our list. Adding a new one is not very easy. If you need new icons open the parkerandkent2011/images/theme/social_network_icons/ folder and put the quora icon graphic in one of the icons that you don’t need. For example edit the lastfm_16.png icon and put the quora graphic in it and save it with the same name. Then in the WP admin, select lastfm to visualize your replaced icon… hope it’s clear.

To add a text below the social icons you have to put the html directly in the header.php file, after line 98:

<!-- pk end social networks -->

You can add something like this:

<div class="pk_divider_small"></div>
<h5 class="pk_widget_title">About me</h5>
<p>Your text here...</p>

Hi,

Wondering if anybody has integrated Disqus into the comments yet, on first sight it works without a hitch… except it seems slightly too large

http://i.imgur.com/FFIgb.png

Don’t know if this is beyond the support thatc omes for the theme, but where could I shrink a bit the that section… on the bleeding edge seems almost wrong.

thanks!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I don’t know Disqus and I don’t understand if you already tried it. Eventually I’d need a link to a live version of the theme to understand what you’re talking about.

I know it’s been a while but i’m going to contact you privately about this if it’s okay, a lot of websites are using this and it will probably come handy for future updates / other themes.

I love the “Auto add post attachments to the slider” feature. It saves a bunch of time. But I was wondering if I can remove the “+lightbox” styling? ie. I want the “auto add post attachments” slider items to behave like the “images” type, not the “lightbox” type. Suggestion? Thanks.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

thanks for purchasing! If I understand what you’re asking, open the parkerandkent2011/functions/theme/get_post_slider.php file and edit line 47:

it is like this:

<a href="&lt;?php echo esc_url($item_full[0]); ?&gt;" rel="prettyPhoto[slider_&lt;?php echo get_the_ID(); ?&gt;]"><img src="&lt;?php echo esc_url($item_large[0]); ?&gt;" /></a>

you make it like this:

<img src="<?php echo esc_url($item_large[0]); ?>" />

Doing this change the lightbox feature will be disabled.

Cheers,

Parker

Yes, that’s what I was after. Thank you for the super swift reply.

A different subject: I just checked out the “live preview” of the theme on this site with Chrome (Mac) and the Nike Pool Video audio begins playing right away (still hidden though). This never happened a few weeks ago. It’s fine on Safari or Firefox. New version bug?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

you’re welcome.

I’ll check on Chrome latest version for mac asap, maybe the new Chrome version behaves differently than the latest one… I’ll let you know ;)

Parker

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I checked with the latest Chrome for pc and yes, it seems that the new html5 YouTube player I’ve added to the theme (not the Nike Pool, but the Buck Bunny on pc), if in autoplay, starts also if the post isn’t selected… this wasn’t happening with the old YouTube embedding.

For sure by setting the autoplay to false in the slider manager won’t make this happen, but tomorrow I’ll see if I can fix this and I’m sure I will :)

Thanks for noticing this, also because when i tested i didn’t hear the audio of the video that starts really low.

Parker

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

just to keep you updated, it really seems a Chrome bug. Nothing bad anyway, it just doesn’t clear playing videos within the iframes like all the other browser. We’ll find a workaround just to keep the autoplay option, that, as I said, if set to false doesn’t make this happen.

Hi,

Could you send me an html version please ?

Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I’m sorry but there’s no html version of this theme.

Parker

In any case,

send me an email, I’ll see if I can give you just the HTML prototype of the theme, also if it’s just a prototype…

You can send me a message through the contact form on my profile page ;)

Hi Parker,

First of all thank you for this great theme :)

I have couple of questions:

1. How can works categories section (on top of the page) open by default on page load?

2. Is it possible to place categories list into the works excerpt area (pk_caption) the same as when it’s open? I will use the thumbnails bigger than yours, so I’ll have enough space to list the categories vertically.

3. I think, as default excerpts doesn’t display their stylings. Is it possible to make the exerpts have the stylings from their posts.

Thank you.

Unique

ParkerAndKent

Hi Unique,

thanks! :)

1: Open the parkerandkent2011/js/theme/pk/pk_frontend.js file and remove/comment line 452:

$(".pk_categories_list", root).css("height" , height + "px").hide();

2: The works categories of each work are already displayed in the meta of each work caption. What do you mean exactly?

3: Unfortunately the excerpt displays plain text only. If you want to have more control over the displayed text use the specific excerpt field of the posts (in any case no shortcodes or styles are allowed).
