Thank you very much Parker for your quick reply.

I’ve modified the js file as you said, but nothing has been changed? Works categories dropdown menu is still working same as before?

The second issue was displaying “categories list” in the un-opened caption excerpt area, anyway i solved it :)

I have one more thing to ask you:

I’m trying to give rollover effect to the featured images (work-thumbs) and slider images. I want image overlay for thumbs and kind of description for slider images. Do i want too much :)

Thanks,

Unique

Hi,

yes, discard the change I suggested you, I didn’t try. Let me make some tests… the categories appears on over so it’s kinda triky to call the event.

I’ll let you know asap ;)

For your other request… maybe it’s not too much, but that’s not something I could really explain here. For the rollover you should create the styles, edit the html markup to add the overlay and eventually create some jquery functions for the animations.

For the slider images descriptions same thing as above plus the need of editing the slider php core to add the information, but in any case in the admin there isn’t an option to add a description for each slider image, so it’s kinda complicated to make… almost impossible to explain here :(

Ok,

to show the categories automatically on page load, always in the pk_frontend.js file, after line 24 add these lines:

jQuery(".pk_categories_list").show();
height = jQuery(".pk_categories_list ul").outerHeight();
jQuery(".pk_categories_list").stop().animate({ "margin-bottom" : "15px", "height" : height + "px" }, 600, "easeOutExpo");

Thank you again for your ongoing support :)

The categories dropdown menu is ok and working now.

I think you’re right about the image rollover effects. I keep going to try by my side :)

Hello again, I have a question about the page numbers. I often get comments that people do not know what page they are on (using the dark theme). Is there something I could add that would highlight the page box? Or at least something that lets them know which page they are on? Thanks guys!!

ParkerAndKent

Hi Jennifer,

if I understand your request you want to highlight more the selected page number of the pagination, right?

If this is the case, go to the PK Options -> General Options page of the admin and paste this line into the Custom CSS field and save:

.pk_pagination a.pk_current_page{ color:#6b6f73; }

Obviously set a more visible color that meets your taste ;)

Cheers,

oh wow, that would be great. Great theme. great service!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

done it, I’m releasing an update for everybody, but you can update your file by yourself.

Open the parkerandkent2011/js/theme/pk/pk_frontend.js file and add these lines after line 24:

jQuery(document).keydown(function(e){

    if (e.keyCode == 38) {
        jQuery(".pk_button_up").click();
        return;
    }
    if (e.keyCode == 40) {
        jQuery(".pk_button_down").click();
        return;
    }
    if (e.keyCode == 37) {
        jQuery(".pk_button_prev").click();
        return;
    }
    if (e.keyCode == 39) {
        jQuery(".pk_button_next").click();
        return;
    }

});

Keys left and right change gallery items, keys up and down let you move through the accordion posts :)

You can see it in action on the live preview already ;)

Hi!

Does the theme have a search feature? I’m looking for something like your theme but I need a really good search!

Best regards / ola

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

sure, you can add the search widget in the sidebar ;)

Hi.

your theme looks amazing. I have some doubt. I’m going to purchase it.

Why when I go to a custom page like “contact” I still see the “blog” item at the top?

is it possible to modify it? thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

thanks! :)

The blog categories are displayed also in the pages, because we have designed this theme specifically for blogging.

In any case, I can tell you how to disable it on pages, it’s very simple :)

Let me know if you buy.

Love your theme so much!!!! Any chance you could add soundcloud integration into the slider? Also the footer social links? You’d be the fricking man!!! It shouldn’t be too hard either soundcloud has great api and widget support. You can check out my customization here: http://mintyfreshmusic.com

Thanks so much Parker!

Sincerely, Ryan

Hi Ryan,

I can’t promess anything but I’ll check it out and I’ll see if is something that I can add.

Very cute theme ! One question: is it possible to resize the slider images (if they’re bigger) to the width of the page ? I will buy this theme for mobile purposes but I think big images will cause a problem without the auto-scaling ! Thank you !

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no, the images can’t be scaled on resize. The slider shows the images at their original size. Obviously (thanks to the auto add post attachments function of the slider) you can add all the large sized images (by WP -> Settings -> Media) in one click. So the large images are loaded in the slider (you can make the large size as you want, eg 660px), while the original big ones are loaded on click thanks to the lightbox gallery.

Let me know if it’s clear.

Cheers,

Parker

I still did not get any reply but I would like to add one more thing related to the slider: The slider needs an auto-slide function, most of the people say that it’s impossible to see the small buttons at the left and right side of the images, because of the big resoluti?ns they’re too seperate from the image.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I don’t work every weekend, on sunday I use to rest sometime :)

I just moved to a new town, so I’m setting back my office and so I’ll be back on support later today ;)

Cheers,

Parker

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

sorry for the delay. The slider actually doesn’t have an auto slideshow functionality, but it’s a good suggestion for a possible update.

In any case, the sliders and the whole accordion of posts/works is browsable by the arrow keys of the keybpoard too… I don’t know who told you that the buttons are impossible to find, but for sure they’re not most of the people, also because you’re the first saying this :)

I’ll see what I can do about the slideshow ;)

Any news about the slider ? the auto-slide function, etc… ?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

in this period I can’t give an exact eta about new features, we’ll develop it as soon we have some time for this.

I would like to know when this is completed. Right now I can not use the theme because of the lack of simple functionality.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

as you probably read on my previous comment I’ve had a family problem, so I’ve not been in the mood of working lately. Right now, with the Christmas coming, I’m not sure I’ll be able to add this feature.

I understand that you need it, but when you purchased the theme you knew this wasn’t available. So, if you buy something that doesn’t have a feature, then you shouldn’t expect it… this is a simple rule also for your next purchases on the marketplace.

I’ll try my best to deliver this new feature as soon as possible, but isn’t simple as you say. There are many things tpo consider when adding auto slideshows… probably you need it for images, but the slider also support other media and so we have to consider all these aspects when developing.

Also a door is a simple feature of an house, but if you have a solid wall isn’t that simple to add the door :)

I will be waiting for the feature. Also, I would like to know if it is possible to show the whole post instead of the excerpt when the posts are clicked.

thank you.

Hi Parker, I bought the theme, but customized a lot, made it responsive so it adapts to smaller resolutions and also get images from Flickr. I’m now stuck trying to change the top filter by category in front site into a header so to gives user the option to sort by category name, post title, excerpt and date. Something like this done to a table: http://goo.gl/C8sdQ.

I would appreciate if you could give me some hints on how to make the links work.

<!-- pk start categories filter -->
<div class="pk_categories_filter">
    <div class="pk_button_categories"><a href="#">orderby category name (alphabetically)</a></div>
    <div class="pk_button_title"><a href="#">orderby post title (alphabetically)</a></div>
    <div class="pk_button_excerpt"><a href="#">orderby post excerpt (alphabetically)</a></div>
    <div class="pk_button_date"><a href="#">orderby date</a></div>
</div>

Thanks and keep up the good work,

Inma

ParkerAndKent

Hi Inma,

you can’t sort using links, to sort in WordPress you should run different database queries, so what you’re asking isn’t possible.

To do that you would need to code a system that gets some URL variables and elaborate a new query depending on the parameters you pass… not a very easy thing to do.

Hello Parker,

This is a great theme indeed. Just one simple question,

Is sub-menu supported in categories ? For example, currently in your demo, we have Works Parent category, under Works, there’s Application, Video, Web Design.

What I want to know is, can Application have another sub categories like Security, Design Tools, etc ?

If they have sub categories, will menu from the right side will show sub categories when hover ?

Please kindly reply to me. Thank you.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no, the categories navigation on the top shows all the categories together, it doesn’t support sub menus.

So, all the categories are visible, but not in a hierarchical mode.

Hey Parker,

Love your work and sorry to hear about family issues around the holidays. When you get a chance I’m trying to make every post use the external link function automatically instead of me filling in the page afterwards.

IE: I want to use the front page to list all the posts but instead of expanding out I want them to link to the post described @ / postname /

http://mintyfreshmusic.com is a good example notice how the top posts go to the external link can I get it to that automatically?
