How does one add a logo?

DI_Design

Hi, OTD . Changing the theme’s logo is extremely easy and is done from the theme’s admin page: - Go to the theme options page, and under the “General” tab, click browse to select a logo image from your computer. You may need to specify it’s width and height in order to adjust it’s margins and center it correctly.

If you still don’t understand, I’ll be glad to assist you.

This really nice theme, but the white flash when page is changed is very hard on the eyes, is there a way to fix that?

DI_Design

Hi ungowa, yes! it can be fixed.

(the white flash is caused by the background images, during the time they are loading.)

We can fix this by changing the background color to one easier on the eyes.

Purchased the theme. Love it. But is there a use for the “main sidebar”? Put stuff in it, it doesn’t show up anywhere. And not sure why the Piecemaker 2 plugin is included. Doesn’t seem to do anything except freeze the background photo. Any suggestions, comments?

Hi. Firstly, thanks allot for buying our theme and I’m glad you like it. - I have included the piecemaker 2 plugin because the theme doesn’t have a built-in slider, and I consider the piecemaker 2 a great plugin and want to share it/distribute it around. I’m not sure what you mean by “freezing the background” I haven’t noticed this issue, but I’ll be looking at it. - There are 2 places where you can place sidebars: below the logo (where the category menu is in the demo) and in the footer. The main sidebar should be the one below the logo (in the hidable menu space). I’m not sure and I can’t check right now because I’m away from home for a few days and can’t access my workstation/development workspace.

Regarding your website: I really like it. However, the logo is a bit off-center I think, especially the clip-art (human-head). You can use the width-height fields in the theme’s admin to adjust although I think you need to fix this with a graphical editing software(the head is not centered on the text in your logo image). The height/width don’t necessarily need to be set to the real dimensions, instead you can use those fields just to adjust the logo. And another thing is the contact slide-down: if you don’t use the map, the contact form is going to be off-center, because that’s the way it was initially designed, but a small edit to the theme’s html and css could fix this issue for you.

Thank you for the speedy reply. Into which file, and where, does one enter the HTML information for piecemaker?

DI_Design

You just install the piecemaker plugin normally, and use it based on it’s instructions. Piecemaker has a special shortcode that is inserted in the page you want it to appear something like [piecemaker1].

Default-user

Oh. So there’s no way to put it on the front page, eh?

Default-user

I really hate to be a pest… I do love the theme and I’m glad I bought it. But I must have done something wrong with the installation. The Main Sidebar area you discussed… it shows pages. I will try eliminating all page menu references and see if that helps. I really would like to have widget info in that sidebar. Also, the Piecemaker… I followed the instructions that came with the plug in. Nothing shows up. I looked at the documentation, and they include some HTML code that is supposed to go somewhere… but they don’t really say where it should be installed. The piecemaker is not necessary for my enjoyment of the product. But am I supposed to follow the plugin instructions for Wordpress (tried to install on my Contact page – nada!) Or do I also have to install the HTML snippet someplace. If so, where? Thanks for your patience.

DI_Design

Of course there is a way to put it on the front page. It’s on the first page in the demo isn’t it? :))

To put it in the front page, just set the index page to a static page.

Default-user

Actually, no. The Piecemaker slider is not on the front page of the demo. But I will try the static page thing and see if that helps. The longitude and latitude come right from Google Maps. But I will try that again as well.

Default-user

OKā€”last time you’ll hear from me.

When I purchased the theme, I recall the piecemaker slider on the demo. Now, it no longer shows up when I open the demo. Just a large blank area.

And on the issue of the map, I just entered the same coordinates you have on your screenshots. No map. I’ve disabled all plugins (except piecemaker). Still no piecemaker, still no map.

Default-user

I’ve obviously screwed something in the installation, although I don’t know why that would keep the piecemaker from showing up on the demo on all three of my browsers.

Also, I’m sure you’re getting tired of me, but I’ve entered longitude and latitude info into the contact section, and I get no map. I am obviously doing something wrong?

You probably mistyped the lat/long. Double check it. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t work.

Well, as a purchaser of this product, I gotta say I’m less than satisfied with the support. I won’t ask for my money back, but I will say that blaming the user and saying “there’s no reason why it shouldn’t work” doesn’t strike me as the height of customer service. The Piecemaker slider STILL does not show up in the DEMO version, let alone the copy I purchased, I entered the same lat/long as he has in the screenshots, and still no map. And he doesn’t seem to have an answer for either of these problems other than “I must have done something wrong.”

I won’t be purchasing any further DI Design products, and that’s a shame because it is a good-looking theme.

Add this to the fact that when you attempt to visit their site, http://www.themetumbler.com/, you get this happy little notice.

Get some frickin’ bandwidth.

bschemalfeldt: Send me a message with your email using the contact form and I’ll help you out.

Unfortunately, I had an extremely tight schedule yesterday and couldn’t find any time to help you. You shouldn’t jump to conclusions so fast, let alone attempt to denigrate our image. You practically waited less than 24 hours.

If telling the truth denigrates your image, perhaps you might wish to examine your image.

Have you fixed your bandwidth problem yet? I see someone else mentioned it earlier.

editor@theliberalgrouch.com

Your quickness to assume all of this is my fault is a little bit less than I tend to call “decent customer service.”

And maybe there’s something wrong with my machine… but PIECEMAKER DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR THEME FOREST DEMO ANY MORE !!!

I look forward to your solutions to these problems.

But I love the theme.

Nope. Still can’t access the http://www.themetumbler.com/ site. Did I do something wrong THERE , TOO?

We’ve helped bschmalfeldt fix the problem he had.

Update: I also want to inform others having the same problem with the map not working: to make it work, move the “head.js file from the xen/js/ folder to the main folder of the theme. (xen/)

themetumbler.com is offline because it is still in construction. As I’ve said on our profile page, any support will be handled through email by first emailing us using the contact form.

I want to thank DI for fixing the problems with my site. They are a little too quick to blame the user, but they did a nice job.

I have two more questions.

Now, since the fix, my background pictures appear when the site is first loaded, but when you click a link to another spot on the site, they vanish. If you refresh, they reappear.

Secondly… I filled out the headline and info section for each of the slides, but nothing shows up on the Piecemaker slides. How do I get my piecemaker slides (thank you for the size correction, BTW ) to have titles like the ones on the demo?

Once these two things are worked out, I am a happy Xen user.
