Hey there,

Curious how to add the author/user image as well as the social media icons for that author/user as you have sampled in your theme demo.

Thanks! Great theme!

jdsans

For adding image you use service from gravatar.com. After adding avatar there , image gets enabled on wordpress platform everywhere.

Regarding media icons you only need to add url of facebook page and username of twitter in your wordpress profile and icons will start appearing

Hi, i’d like to know if i’d be able to (easily): - setup a blogroll - insert a full width banner/logo - reduce the white box where content is displayed to the height of red top bar

jdsans

Hi,

You can insert blogroll easily and logo too

I didn’t understand the last thing??? Do you mean width

My Popular Posts widget doesn’t seem to have changed at all in the past couple of days. How often does it update, and how can I check that it’s working properly?

jdsans

Please update to new files

Thanks, I updated to the new version and the changes are great. I have section 2 of the frontpage to latest, and section 3 to popular. I think it’s changing now…

Another question I had about it was, if a post already showing up in sections 1 and 2, is there a way to prevent it from showing up again in section 3?

jdsans

This feature is already in the theme unless you’ve added another of your section

jdsans

Hi jdsans,

Is it possible to get the .details of the slider to float above the slider with a white background, rather than below?

Thanks,

jdsans

You need to edit index.php for version 2.2 or less and template-home.php for 3.0v

How to change direction Right to Left. If I use html {direction:rtl;} the section one and two on the home page disappears.

jdsans

I think in wordpress twentytwelve there are two style sheets called rtl.css and editor-style-rtl.css

They should help you with that. I don’t have enough knowledge of that

Hi :)

How do I make my posts appear in two columns on the home page? I can get the slider working, but only in static mode and only in one column.

Best regards, Malene

jdsans

The options for other two sections are in Theme’s option panel. You need to select the category for there

I have enabled both section one and two and the sliders in ‘Homepage settings’.

jdsans

Also if any post is appearing in slider, then it won’t appear in any other section

Thanks for the last quick answer!

Another question. The social media icons in the header. I was looking to actually add other sites that aren’t LinkedIn, RSS, Facebook Pinterest or Twitter. I figured that I could just add my own icon image matching what’s there in place and then just modify my link in the appropriate spot on the theme options.

Ultimately my question is, where can I find the source of the social media icons so I can override the icon with a new image icon? And is this even possible?

Thanks!

jdsans

Hi,

Regarding social icons you need to edit style.css file and edit css/images/sprites.png (for changing the icons)

Or you can hire me to do the change

Default-user

Sweet. That worked! Thanks. Just edited the sprite.png image and then deleted the front end url in the header.php

jdsans

Cheers :)

Also don’t forget to rate the theme on themeforest. You can do it by going to Downloads

Hi jdsans,

Great work with this theme. I have a question:

i’m trying to create menus, but when i activate it in menu settings, it doesn’t display in front end. What am i doing wrong?

Thanks a lot!

jdsans

Did you save the menu in its appropriate location. This option is in the Menus page itself

Default-user

Yes, i did, and i can’t see the menus.. :(

jdsans

Give address of site

Default-user

www.mundomonino.com thks!

jdsans

Hi,

In header.php there will be code like this

wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu_id'=>'primary_main','theme_location' => 'primary-menu','walker' => new description_walker()));

Change it by removing

,'walker' => new description_walker()

There are more than one instances of the code to remove. Remove all and save.

Default-user

Thanks! Perfect now.

jdsans

Cheers

Hi Jdsans,

How about an option in the Custom Post Widget to make the widget title link to the category?

Loving the theme, thanks.

jdsans

Great suggestion, i’ll add it in the next update :)

I’ve noticed on the mobile version of my site, I’m getting a strange white block on the right side of the Navigation menu.

Does this on the iPad and iPhone. Any idea what the fix could be?

Thanks!

jdsans

There used to be a search icon. You should again change the image carefully.

My images are not properly cropped and do not look uniform on the homepage. Where can I set the thumbnail size for section 1 (315×169px) and section 2 (140×140px)?

jdsans

If you’re using images from you’re previous theme, then they won’t be the same size as used in ZEND. you’ll have to re-upload them for them to be cropped

Default-user

I can batch-re-crop my images using a plugin but you need to tell me which image size you’re using for which image type. This is the list: Thumbnail size, Medium size, Large size, post-thumbnail size, small size, post-large size.

jdsans

See documentation, its already mentioned there. The slider size is 650 X 350 instead of 650 X unlimited

Default-user

I’m not referring to the slider image, but to the thumbnail images above or at left of the post title on the homepage. The question is, what’s the name of the 315×169 format? According to the Wordpress manual that’s “post-thumbnail size” (aka features image). But when I regenerate this thumbnail, it still appears as square (the original image is a square).

jdsans

For those blocks too, its mentioned in the documentation. Two columns blocks – 315X169 For one columns – 140 X 140

This is the code found in functions.php

add_image_size( 'medium', 315, '', true ); // Medium thumbnails add_image_size( 'small', 140, 140, true ); // Small thumbnails add_image_size( 'post-large', 650, 350, true ); // Post thumbnails add_image_size( 'fullsize', '', '', true ); // Fullsize

This is how it shows up in my theme (the green empty spaces are the problem). The theme is troublesome with images that do not have the same aspect ratio (square and very heigh images):

There are very less chances of two themes using the same image sizes unless they are from the same author. For cropping there are only two options you can try:-

1. Either uploads your images again as images are cropped to there right sizes after uploading .

2. Use timthumb or use http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/freshizer-custom-wordpress-image-resizer-with-cache/67082. These two dynamically resizes the images where they are called. For these you don’t need to upload images again.

Thanks Jasdeep

Hi there!

One question: how can i change the language or the text in the search box etc. ? Brilliant theme by the way!

If you’re using new new version, then i’ve provided translation files from which you can modify all the text used in ZEND

In the related items block the thumbnails vary in height which results in an ugly look, especially when you’ve used a portrait image. Could easily be fixed with over-flow:hidden property in CSS. Please add that to the CSS for a next update.

jdsans

You need to upload your featured images again,if you’re using them from your previous theme for them to be cropped again, so that they fit in all sections of ZEND
