Hey Parker! I wanted to know if it’s possible to make the homepage slider more simple as in having dots instead of the thumbnails to save space? Thanks!

ParkerAndKent

Hi Gary,

no, thumbnails can’t be replaced by dots. But… below your home page editor (when you edit your home page in the admin), in the PK Options metabox, there are many many options to control the slider…. so you can edit the size of thumbs to be a lot smaller, as well the slider height too, as well setting the thumbnails number to 0… so hide them.

You can do almost everything there… let me know ;)

Hi,

Is this theme comaptible with the latest wordpress update.

Are there any “Cheatin’ uh?” error msgs?

Thanks in advance…

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no, no strange messages. All our themes are compatible with the latest version 4.3.1.

With some hard work on php, html and css… not sure if that’s possible at all with the Itis menu structure.

sorry to spam you Parker but I created 2 categories “news” and “press releases” but they don’t have any meta data but my blog does. Do you know how I can show them?

Also in my news HUGE images show up on the main news page (list of news articles) how can I hide the images?

In all my categories (blog, news, press releases) when i click into a specific article, there’s a left sidebar. In the blog options i turned them off but they still appear. is there a way to make each article full width? Thanks!!!

ParkerAndKent

Hi Gary,

blog categories in WordPress are part of the Blog archive loop, so categories are archives. So, understanding this, in the PK Options panel in the admin you should check if your Blog Archive Options are set like the Blog Options… same settings = same way to display posts.

Regarding the news category same thing, it depends on the settings of the Blog Archive Options page.

With Itis, you can create a specific profile of options for a specific category if you need a category to be displayed in a different way than all the other archives (categories). To understand the profiles check the Options Profiles within the PK Theme Help.

The sidebar for each blog post should be set in the PK Options of each post, below the editor (when you edit pages, posts, etc…)

If you want to bypass the sidebar option (so you don’t have to set it to every post) you can open the parkerandkent2011/functions/theme/includes/pk_settings.php and edit lines from 228 to 242 in this way:

if (is_singular(array('post', 'works'))) {

    $pk_test_count++;

    $pk_page_meta = pk_get_meta();

    $pk_sidebar = (isset($pk_page_meta['sidebar'])) ? $pk_page_meta['sidebar'] : 'right';
    $pk_show_comments_sidebar = (isset($pk_page_meta['show_comments_sidebar'])) ? $pk_page_meta['show_comments_sidebar'] : 'true';
    $pk_show_author_info = (isset($pk_page_meta['show_author_info'])) ? $pk_page_meta['show_author_info'] : 'false';
    $pk_intro = (isset($pk_page_meta['intro'])) ? $pk_page_meta['intro'] : '';
    $pk_footer_profile = get_post_meta($post -> ID, '_pk_footer_profile', true);
    $pk_sidebar = 'none';
    pk_print_intro();

}

Basically add $pk_sidebar = ‘none’; before the pk_print_intro(); call.

Hey Parker!

Another questions with the blog, press release, news categories. The titles that appear for both my news and press release categorie inside pk intro is “blog archive.” I want it to say “press releases” and “news” instead. How can I do this? I think i’m still confused about separating these categories. you help is gratefully appreciated!

ParkerAndKent

Hi Gary,

in WordPress the blog categories belong to the blog archive, so it’s normal that you see “blog archive” in the title.

Obviously what is printed is decided by us, so it can be changed…. but remember that this change will be valid for any blog category, not only to the 2 ones you’re talking about.

Open the parkerandkent2011/functions/theme/pk_intro.php and edit line 55 in this way:

<h2 id="pk_page_title"><?php echo (is_category()) ? single_tag_title('', false) : __('Blog Archive', 'pk_text_domain_front'); ?></h2>

Then probably you’d like to change what’s written after the title, so you should edit line 71 too:

printf(__('You are viewing the category archive for: %s', 'pk_text_domain_front'), single_cat_title('', false));

These 2 lines handle how the title is formed when viewing a category through the blog archive.

you’re a G Parker.

I’m using Yoast for my site and the plugin gives the option to insert breadcrumbs with the following code:

<?php if ( function_exists(‘yoast_breadcrumb’) ) { yoast_breadcrumb(‘

’,’

‘); } ?>

I put it in side pk_center_box in pk_intro.php. But when the breadcrumb appears, and I go to a press release. The breadcrumb appears as:

Home - Blog - (Title of press release)

Is there a way for it to change to Home - Press Releases - (title of press release)? Curious if it’s related to your theme, which i think it is.

Seriously thank you!!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no, the dynamics of the breadcrumbs plugins are not related to the theme. They chek the wp queries indipendently.

As I told you before, the result you’re getting is right… what you want to display is wrong, that’s why you need tweaks… you can’t expect to have the cateories to work like pages :)

In any case, don’t know about Yoast, I usually use NavXT… but check if the plugin has a settings page, probably you can edit the the way it displays categories. But I’m not sure. Remember that categories are blog children.

2) if it is possible to change the work Category hearer color in home page as my site i have 4 Categories (news, high lights, vedio and Events) i wish if each word have a different color at home page.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

1: can you explain better, I don’t understand what you’re asking.

2: you created 4 columns, I need to know if you used the column shortcodes or if you added the divs manually to wrap your contents… depending on this we’ll see what to do ;)

Hello again, I used the column shortcodes at home page but each row is not aligned with the other column, for example please back to my home page and check first 2 columns “News” and “Events” that the first row have 5 lines and other have 6 lines so the end of each topic not aligned. how can i solve it.

2) other issue that i found when i created topics using Toggles. that if i active one Toggles is not close others Toggles and stay all toggles opened in the page and making the page more taller. how can make Toggles close automaticly when i active other?

thank you.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

well, those are columns, not a grid… the excerpt text may vary based on the length of the words, but the number of words is the same (30 words, you can count them on each item)... there’s nothing you can do about that, unless you manually enter the excerpt texts in the posts taking care of the length of what you write.

Basically if you don’t enter an excerpt, the excerpt is taken from the post content in a specified number of words, automatically.

If you manually write the excerpts, the items will show only what you write, not a defined number of words, so you can adjust your texts to have an aligned effect in the end. This is web designing, this is up to you and the result you’d like to have. Automatic things can’t be precise as you could as designer/copy.

For your toggle issue the solution is very simple, basically when you created the shortcode you should have set the “Accordion style” option to “Yes”. Anyway, without regenerating the toggles shortcode, add this attribute to the shortcode in your page:

accordion="true" 

Let me know,

Parker

Hi ParkerAndKent I back again to update my site. still with accordion=”true” not close who is not active

what i think is better that if you can help me change the js on pk_frontend for non active toggle become close. thank you

ParkerAndKent

I tried this shortcode inside a blog post, work, standard page and homepage

[pk_minimal_toggles width="0" align="none" accordion="true"]

[pk_minimal_toggle title="Toggle title 0"]
<p>Toggle 0 content here...</p>
[/pk_minimal_toggle]

[pk_minimal_toggle title="Toggle title 1"]
<p>Toggle 1 content here...</p>
[/pk_minimal_toggle]

[/pk_minimal_toggles]

and it work fine.

Hi Parker,

I had a few questions about Page/Works. I created new Work by putting an image (Medium size) and text for it, both center aligned. I created a few of these Work in the same style. I created a Page with 4 Column Work template without the Read More button. Even though in the original Work page, the texts are center aligned to the image, the texts now become left aligned with the image once pulled together into the parent Page.

Then, when I filter by categories, the images become larger, in 3 columns, texts left aligned still, and with the Read More button that takes me to their original Work page.

My questions are: 1. How can I make the texts to be center aligned according to each image even when displayed with all the other Works in the column? 2. How can I keep the images to 4 columns (texts centered) without the Read more button even after filtered to categories? 3. Is there a way to be able to click on the thumbnail image to be directed to its individual Work page rather than the Read More button? Not all work needs to be elaborated, so I would rather be able to click on the image than have the button in order to keep a uniform look.

Thank you!

Hi,

The site is www.asukaemmi.com I’m not done editing it all, so I have not added this to the main menu, but if you go to http://www.asukaemmi.com/projects/film/ you should be able to see what I’m talking about as far as filtering the category from there and seeing the changes.

Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

ok, everything’s clear.

1: When you create a works page you basically create a page holder for some works. This page has its options and you’ve set them correctly below the editor of the page.

When you browse a work category you’re not anymore in the page, but you’re in the WordWpess archives, that have a totally different dynamic. So, for this reason, the options you have set to the page won’t be used by the works archives. To have the same view, you must set the same options in the PK Options -> Works Archive Options admin page. That’s it :)

2: What you enter in the works editor is only for the single work page content. The grid doesn’t take the style of the single work content, it has its style and output, that is totally unrelated to the content.

To center the title and excerpt of the grid items you need to set the right css style for the grid. Go in the PK Options -> General Options admin page and scroll to the last “Custom CSS ” option and enter these lines:

.pk_entry_grid p {text-align:center; }
.pk_entry_grid h4 {text-align:center; }

Save and everything should look as you wish ;)

Parker

Default-user

Awesome! That did fix the columns issue and also the text alignment… for the titles, but not for the texts that follow… What can I add in the Custom CSS so that I can make those centered as well? (I’m sorry for being so web-illiterate :( )

Is there a way to make some of the grid thumbnails to be able to link to the original Works page? For example, if you go back to my site (I added more in the meantime :) ), for the Personal category, I would like to elaborate more on each of those posts. But because I took out the Read More button option in the Works Archive Options, I cannot do that anymore. If that is not possible, I may just make Personal its own thing, but if possible, I would like to keep it the way I have set up now. Also, can I edit the preview texts? In Personal, I’d like it to not look like a bunch of non-cohesive words.

Thank you.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I think you pasted some wrong code from the comment. In the Custom CSS option enter only:

.pk_entry_grid p {text-align:center; } .pk_entry_grid h4 {text-align:center; }

Do not enter the pre tags.

For the thumbs, when you create a work post, below the editor there are the work options. Scroll down and find the “Thumbnail action” option and select “Link to post”. You must do this for each work.

Let me know,

Parker

Default-user

That did work, thank you! One last issue, and I will stop bugging you for the night! Is there a way to edit or delete the preview texts? The main title/captions are fine and would like to keep, but the rest of the smaller texts I would like to delete, as shown on this page http://www.asukaemmi.com/projects/personal/ Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

if I understand, you want to hide the little descriptions below the images…

To do that, instead of this:

.pk_entry_grid p {text-align:center; }

add this to the Custom CSS :

.pk_entry_grid p {display:none; }

Parker

Default-user

Yes, but I only want it to affect on that one particular page. Is that possible?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

yes :)

Add this 3rd line, don’t delete what I told you in the previous post.

.page-id-588 .pk_entry_grid p { display: none; }

Parker

Parker, I’m using itis theme in www.elamigodelperro.com.ar. I’m using 7 differents pages including the home page. I’m wondering if there is any way to show all the comments of all pages at home page. If I link to a specific page like “Paseos” I would like to show only the comments belong to that page.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I’m sorry, but WordPress loads only the comments belonging to the current page, there’s no way to group all the site comments all together.

Hi,

you can try to troubleshoot timthumb as explained in the important notices at the beginning of the PK Help section in the admin.

In any case, in most of the cases with other users, you probably will need to contact your hosting support and ask them to enable timthumb on your domain. In the 100% of the cases that fixes every issue with this script.

Let me know,

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

looking better to your problem, I discovered that you’re using on your server one of the first releases of the theme that had a bug. To fix your problem with timthumb redownload the theme from your downloads page here on TF and replace the theme folder on your server with the current release.

Hey Parker,

is the theme WPML compatible?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

it should work fine, also if isn’t included the wpml config xml file that instructs wpml about how to translate specific things, but that’s not a big problem. Depending on your contents and set up it might work flawless or it could need some extra attention to some details, but in general you shouldn’t have problems. In case something doesn’t work, let me know and I can see if I can help you… obviously I can’t guarantee regarding a total compatibility.

1 How are you trying to add the slides to the slider? Explain me your steps, so I can see what’s wrong.

2 The works posts are for the portfolio pages, while the posts are the standard posts for the blog.

Hi Parker

Thanks a lot for your reply! 1. admin panel > Slides > Add New > PK Shortcodes Manager > choose “Slider” > Generate Shortcode > Publish (sorry , I am not good at Wordpress. I just guess it should do it..)

2. I hope to create a Bird liberaries. The Work can be a liberaries? I create a lot of posts now. Can I move the post to “Works Posts”?

3. I didn’t install the demo contents. because there are a lot content (ours) now. I am afraid there are too many posts. too messy.

please kindly help, thanks!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

the slides posts are for the sliders. You don’t have to use the slider shortcode within the slides posts.

Basically you first create your slides posts… images, videos, etc… check the PK Options below the editor of each slide. Then, once you have created your slides, within normal posts or pages you can load them through the slider shortcode. Let me know if it’s clear.

Unfortunately you can’t move blog posts to works posts, they are two separated things with different options. Obviously if you don’t need the portfolio grid layouts, you can keep your blog posts to showcase your works… just group them under a specific category.

Let me know if you need more help ;)

Hi,

blog posts and pages are the default post types of wordpress. Posts are ordered by date and can be categorized, while pages are for static contents like “about us”, “contact us” and similar.

The works are a custom post type for this theme only, they allow you to organize your works by category… so yes, you can use them for that scope. Obvioulsy changing theme they won’t be displayed anymore.
