I absolutely love the theme! How do I go about slowing down the slideshow? I just realized the number set in milliseconds is for the actual transition.

Hi tamaranmitchell,

I’m glad you’re liking the theme :)

If you edit the “jquery.fractionslider.min.js” file (found in the “js” folder), this is where all the slider plugin settings are. You can add this extra option in the list of options to set a timeout for each slide.

jQuery(window).load(function(){
  jQuery('.slider').fractionSlider({

    'fullWidth':             true,
    'controls':             false, 
    'pager':                 false,
    'responsive':             true,
    'dimensions':             "1180,520",
    'increase':             false,
    'pauseOnHover':         false,
    'timeout':            5000

  });
});

This should create a five second wait between slides, adjust the number to your needs.

Hope this helps.

Thanks! - Dan.

On a side note, you can find a list of all available options at the plugin’s site:

Excellent!! Thank you for your timely response.

Hi, I just bought your template. Looks great. However when editing the pages the shortcode dropdown does not appear in the tinyMCE. Could you help me please?

thanks, Sander

I see the two items showing up in the portfolio, but in the archives there’s about a dozen. The theme arranges them by portfolio name, have you assigned portfolios to each of your items? It appears only two of your items are assigned a portfolio (category).

Thanks :)

- Dan.

... strange, something worked for a short while after i changed the dates of the portfolio item, but now it’s back to only 2 images…..

I’ve also assigned multiple portfolio’s to portfolio items.

Strange…..

grz,

S.

If you can give me WordPress access I’d be happy to take a look.

Please email me via my profile page.

Cheers.

Just purchased your theme. There is a problem with displaying portfolio items. HTML is physially generated by PHP template (you can see it in browser) for portfolio items, but div.portfolio-grid is hidden (probably by JS, I did not dig that much). Setting posts_per_page to -1 (like suggested in some earlier comments) does not help. And, BTW, on your demo website I can see the same issue: http://www.cssvillain.com/chimera/?page_id=113 All HTML is there, but no portfolio items shown, and buttons do not work.

Hi ikozachenko,

I’ve just checked on Firefox, IE10, Chrome and iPhone 5. All is working as it should be.

Do you have any browser add-ons or plugins that could be causing this? Also, can you check in different browsers?

Thanks.

It works in IE10 and FF 33, didn’t in Opera 18, but works in Opera 26 after update, and still does not work in Chrome 32, even when I disabled all plug-ins and restarted. Also it works in Chrome on an Android phone and Safari on iPhone 5. So this is definitely something with my Chrome version. Will try to update and see. Thank you for pointing right way. UPD: Chrome 39 works.

Hello, I installed your chimera-shortcodes but seems not working. It’s not showing up on my visual editor toolbar. Need to get it fixed. Please help.

Hi,

Please email me your purchase ID (found in your “Downloads” tab), or login with the account you purchased the item under. You can email me via my profile page.

Thanks.

Hi, I would like to know how to change the font and font size of the Menu of Chimera Theme. Thanks.

Hi,

Please provide your purchase code so I can further assist you. You can find the purchase code in your “Downloads” tab in your Themeforest account.

Thanks!

Hi, I just purchased this theme and love it but I’m a little stuck. Firstly, My shortcodes are not showing as per your documentation.

Where you have the portfolio image on Homepage One (I’ve uploaded the demo data successfully) – I cant click on them to get to them information for that item – how I can disable the image enlarging and it go straight to that pages content so it’s more a link not an image?

Can I display images on the homepage exactly the same as the portfolio featured images but from another page that is not a portfolio item? Or is there a way to get the containers/image borders you used for the portfolio items to display on the homepage so I can use it for other things on the site to keep things uniformed? What options do I have? I want to use them to display by different services not portfolio items.

Hi,

Hi, I just purchased this theme and love it but I’m a little stuck. Firstly, My shortcodes are not showing as per your documentation.

The shortcode generator has stopped working due to an API update with the TinyMCE editor. Currently working on a fix for this. You can still use the shortcodes, you just need to manually type them out.

Where you have the portfolio image on Homepage One (I’ve uploaded the demo data successfully) – I cant click on them to get to them information for that item – how I can disable the image enlarging and it go straight to that pages content so it’s more a link not an image?

You will need to do a small edit to one of the template files for this. If you can provide me with WordPress access, I’d be happy to do this for you. Please send me a private email via my profile page.

Or is there a way to get the containers/image borders you used for the portfolio items to display on the homepage so I can use it for other things on the site to keep things uniformed?

The styling for these images use the class name post-thumbnail-container. Just add this class name to your image containers. Here’s an example:

<a class="post-thumbnail-container" href="#">
  <img src="..." />
</a>

Thanks!

Perfect! Thank you :)

Why won’t the header image in options stay saved? Every time I save it, it just disappears again. And why won’t it fit the whole width of the page? No matter was width I upload it shows white at the edges. I have tried changing the figure in custom-header.php but it does nothing.

Hi,

You can go to Appearance -> Editor and can paste any CSS you need at the bottom of your “style.css” file and it should work fine.

Here are a couple of the main areas where you can reduce the padding in the main areas:

#primary {
    padding-top: 100px;
    padding-bottom: 80px;
}
#page-footer {
    padding-top: 80px;
    padding-bottom: 30px;
}
.chimera-icon-box:last-of-type {
    margin-bottom: 100px;
}

These are the current values, you can adjust them as needed. Be sure to wrap all of this in the @media query I mentioned in the previous reply if you only want to target mobiles.

Thanks.

Hi. No this doesn’t help at all. There is still a massive white gap under the logo no matter what figure I put in. And the footer spaces are still large too.

Hi,

Do you have FTP access? If so, try adding the CSS to the “responsive.css” file, at the bottom.

This is all the CSS I used to reduce all the space in the areas you mentioned:

@media screen and (max-width: 1024px) {

  #site-logo img {
    width: 100%;
    height: auto;
    margin-bottom: -40px;
  }
  #primary {
    padding-top: 100px;
    padding-bottom: 80px;
  }
  #page-footer {
    padding-top: 20px;
    padding-bottom: 20px;
  }
  .chimera-icon-box:last-of-type {
    margin-bottom: 0px;
  }
  .page-divider {
    margin: 0;
  }

}

If you don’t have access to that stylesheet, another option would be to add !important; at the end of each CSS rule so that the original styles get overridden properly.

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks.

Hi there, one of my clients is using your theme. He would like to implement a javascript code into the footer, but there is no footer.php. How should he proceed? Thank you in advance.

Hi,

There is a footer.php, the theme won’t work without it :)

You should be able to edit it in Appearance -> Editor and select footer.php from the list on the right.

Thanks!

it does not appear on the right-hand column and I do not have access to his account. How can I send you a screenshot? Thanks.

Hi,

You can contact me directly through my Profile Page.

Thanks.

Hi Alejandro,

It sounds like you may have reached your disk space limit. Try deleting a few items that you are not using or ask your web host to increase your disk space.

Thanks!

Hello, I have a lot of space in the hosting my Purchase code: dd9b649c-bd24-48f9-833a-81c99100593b

It cost for you to install?

I sent you the access data to Hosting, FTP and WP Admin

Tell me who sent you mail data and where you pay the installation

Best regards

Alejandro Gandino

Hi Alejandro,

You can contact me via my Profile Page. Fill out the form on the right.

The error you were getting earlier could also be due to the wrong file permissions. You’ll need to contact your web host about it if that’s the case.

Thanks!

Can you please provide working link to Documentation regarding this theme?

Hi,

The documentation can be found directly inside your download package when you unzip it.

Thanks.

I’m interested in the theme but could you have a look at the w3c validator issues and let me know if you can address these?

Hi,

Keep in mind that this item is no longer being supported, so there will be no support available.

As for the W3C errors, most of them are from missing “alt” attributes in the IMG tags. Should be easily fixable with a few tweaks, but if you left it as it is, it shouldn’t affect performance.

Thanks!

Hello, I would have if this theme is still compatible with the latest update wordpress .

Hi,

I can confirm that the theme is compatible with the latest version of WordPress, but support is no longer available.

The only thing that isn’t working, is the shortcode generator. But the shortcodes still work fine :)

Thanks!
