Wanted to throw a wish list suggestion out there…
When you are creating a page using the visual page builder, to be able to change the name of each place holder, just for labeling purposes. It would be easier to navigate when creating a page if you could label each placeholder, just for page creation purposes. Don’t know if this is possible, but it would be cool.
You’re right, when a page has several modules stacked it is tough to find the one you want to edit for example, we already have that in mind and will come up with a solution, but something for when we got some time to do it
Thanks for the tip, it is actually a good and simple solution for it.
I have a problem with diacritics:
the Open Sans (default) Google font has latin/polish sings. But on my website – they’re replaced with other font. How can I change it?
Have you select the subsets you need in the template customizer under font settings?
Hi, the theme looks great. Is it possible to get just the fullscreen slider on the homepage and not a “normal” page?
Thanks for your support.
Yes you can define a slider as homepage, the best way is to create a new page and choose the slider template, then choose a slider you created previously. After that you can select that page to be homepage in the template customizer under navigation options
Thanks for answering my questions. I seem to be having some issue with loading scripts or some issue with my web hosting. I’m not sure if this is a template issue or hosting. Any guidance? I’ve created these two pages as trials and in both examples there are issues with loading images through the slider and through the image gallery. It only seems to work if you refresh the page? Meaning I click on the page and then I have to refresh it each time in order for the slideshow to load? The issue seems to be a problem on Safari and Firefox mostly http://projectdoer.com/c-2500-larimer-containers/ And then on this page I have a similar problem with the clicking on the image gallery below the large picture: http://projectdoer.com/2500-larimer-containers/
Which essenza version do you got? And wordpress version?
I have Essenza version 2.4 and WordPress 3.9.1. I’ve noticed the issue of the slider and the image gallery not working happens when you click on the page from the menu and load it. If you load the page separately it seems to work but as soon as you put the page as a menu item and select it from the menu it seems to break and not load particularly in all versions of safari and most browsers.
Okay one other issue that may be related to the script or host issue I mentioned in my prior post. I can’t use the “Save Page” feature? Pushing the save button brings up the popup but then it doesn’t do anything. Any thoughts?
Maybe it’s better if you create a ticket in our support system at http://plusquare.ticksy.com
Otherwise it’s tough to keep track of conversation. Provide us some wp admin credentials so we can analyze faster what’s wrong.
Choosing a theme and importing a demo won’t show the menu afterwards. It’s as if they’re ghosted, (I’m able to click on them but visually I cant see them). What’s the problem here?
That’s really strange. Can you create a tciket in our support system at: http://plusquare.ticksy.com/
Provide us somw wp admin credentials so we can take a look to what’s happening.
More problems: the method `plusquare_get_page_to_back` is broken – this is due to the portfolio template not allowing you to save a page with no categories.
Here is an example. I create a page with the portfolio template, but I don’t want any of the existing categories added (lets say because I havent added a category of content to be associated yet…).
When i save this page, it automatically selects ‘All, present and future categories’. Now when I click the close button within the single-portfolio.php – it takes me to this (the last added) portfolio page.
This is a bigger problem because it doesn’t remember the specifc portfolio you came from – only a page that has the most selected categories associated!
Yes that’s true, it’s a matter of organization, it wouldn’t be hard to make it go back to the previous page, but if a user navigates directly to a single portfolio page and clicks the close button it needs to go to the portfolio page where that work is at, so it goes to the first it finds. Don’t think this is a problem and you should be able to do pretty much anything with this way of work.
What are you trying to achieve in terms of structure of your site?
Well, I disagree – I do think this is a problem.
Lets say you have a parent page called ‘work’ (portfolio template) which displays the category of ‘promo’. I can show selected pieces of all my work on this page by adding the category of promo.
Underneath work there are several children pages (portfolio template). Lets say ‘drink’, ‘food’, ‘dessert’.
The food page shows work tagged as ‘food’, dessert page ‘dessert’ and so on. Now, for arguments sake – lets say a piece of work can be tagged as both ‘food’ and ‘dessert’.
If I click through to that piece of work from within the ‘food’ page, and then close it – I am taken back to the dessert page.
A close button implies ’ take me back to the previous screen’ not ‘take me back to somewhere else’
Yes but if you navigate to such a work, taking from your example from food and dessert it needs to get which page to back to between 2 or 3 possible pages. What we can do is add the conditional that if the user comes from the dessert page for example, then go back to that specific page. I’ll add it to the to do list. Though you can include all categories in one page and have the filter there so the user can sort it, which was our main behavior focus.
Thanks for your feedback on this by the way, we’re always open for this type of discussion and believe me we do take these suggestions in consideration.
I’ll try to allocate it for next version, but next version shouldn’t be for soon.
Just a note: trying to accomplish this with sessions will be troublesome – some platforms that involve caching (wpengine, anyone using a total cache plugin) will have huge problems with cached pages containing the links that were generated the first time…so I can recommend avoiding this.
WP Transients will suffer the same fate if used within page templates, but as you are using AJAX for the portfolio masonry, you can set/get transients using ajax as these requests are never cached.
For example: within pq_get_portfolio_posts() method, you can set the the parent_id for 12 hrs using:
set_transient( 'portfolio_parent_id', $postId, 12 * HOUR_IN_SECONDS );
$json["parentLink"] = get_permalink( get_transient( 'portfolio_parent_id' ) );
There will obviously need to be some fallbacks in place – ‘does the transient exist?’ ‘does my json contain a parent link?’ but you currently have this. So essentially – if the returned json contains a parentLink – use that, else fall back to your existing plusquare_get_page_to_back() method.
Really good suggestion, we’ll look into applying this for the next version.
Thanks so much
No problem – I have a lot of suggestions around tweaks/added functionality/implementation. (I actually posted suggestions on child theming setups on here and in the forum under a different account). I would be happy to give you more technical feedback/feature Implementation suggestions if this is something you would be interested in.
Sure, we’re always up for suggestions. We record everything in our task list, so nothing gets forgotten
I have installed the theme latest version but can’t access the theme options, every time I click on a Theme Option menu item, it won’t load any page, the url is as follows
Can you please suggest a fix for this asap!
Can you create a ticket in our support system so we cna take a look, provide some wp credentials as well. http://plusquare.ticksy.com/
Hi, I have a problem with the template Essenza following that automatically update your wordpress version 3.9.1 The problem is that adjustments own template settings are not loaded and not let me do any selection of images part of the site, either the portfolio or the configuration of pages and posts. Please I need you to tell me how to solve this problem to manage my website. I appreciate any help.
When you take out an update to fix errors Essenza compatibility with wordpress 3.9.1?
I need to know to see if I’m still working with Essenza or decide to change template.
Essenza is compatible with wp 3.9.1, we didn’t receive any complaints with it so the issue might be another. Can you create a ticket in our support system at http://plusquare.ticksy.com/? Provide us some wp credentials so we can debug what’s happening
Is it possible to only have certain filters selected when you first open a page? I have 5 filters available for selection but I would only one filter set of images to show when you open the page for the first time.
Hi, unfortunately that’s not possible. I’ll add that feature to the wishlist though
great looking theme. i was just wondering if i had a lot of photography on my site does this theme have a slideshow feature built in for the portfolio items as i can’t find it in the demos?
Are you talking in something like our slider? Something like: http://essenza.plusquare.pt/minimal/ Or maybe something more like: http://essenza.plusquare.pt/creative/portfolio/marius-fahrner/
Hi, very interested in these theme, will you be adding ecommerce and a photo proofing feature so clients can select images and order them? This would be incredibly useful! Thanks.
Sorry for the delay on the answer. Ecommerce on Essenza isn’t a priority for now unfortunately, we have the idea but we want to at least release a new theme before releasing such a feature to it
By photo proofing do you mean creating galleries than you can order yourself? http://www.image-share.com/upload/2568/102.jpg we have that feature already in use.
Hi, thanks for the reply! By photo proofing I mean a password protected gallery, where a client of mine can select the pictures they would like to download or buy. Thanks!
Oh, got it, yes it’s a feature we would want to see on essenza as well, but not for soon unfortunately as well.
With the new upgrade of Wordpress, no theme settings can be opened.
It does not work properly. Is it anyway to change it quickly?
We’ll take a look to that as soon as we can, top priority to the check list
Thanks for reporting.
Is it possible to mix and match pages from different demos (creative and corporate) or does your theme only support uploading dummy content from one demo only? Thanks
You can only import dummy content from one demo at a time. You can though combine things yourself, any layout displayed in any of the demos can be produced into a single one
Thanks so much for answering my questions. In the top menu I would like to link to specific url with a portfolio categories filter in the default gallery. Is there an easy way to link to a default portfolio page with a specific filter? What would be the url for example if I wanted to link the menu?
To clarify, I’m looking what the url would be for a specific category filter for a portfolio gallery. I notice that there is the option of creating a menu with gallery categories but not for portfolio categories?
A bit confused with what you want. You can have a filter menu in the portfolio pages, you can also add portfolio categories in the menu, check the screen options menu from wordpress if they’re not showing up.
How do you change the title of “All projects” filter for a specific page?
I’m afraid there isn’t a built option for it, you’d have to make some little changes to the code itself.
Great work. I just purchased your theme but im getting the 2.4 version. Not the 2.7 you wrote down on the changelog. Am I missing something?
The latest version is in fact 2.4, you check it here: http://plusquare.pt/changelog/essenza/
When will the option to open social footer icons in new window be available?
Also, why can I not set a Portfolio Work to my homepage root URL? I thought this was fixed? I don’t want website.com/portfolio/name as my homepage. No one wants to go to a website homepage and see a stringed URL like that.. You don’t go to google.com and expect google.com/tuesday/june/search to appear as the URL.
Links in the Twitter widget should also open in a new tab/window..
That’s an issue with wordpress itself, when you define a post as front page it doesn’t change the url properly, that’s why we added the option to create slider type pages, to solve that for the slider on front page. As to the single portfolio works you could try editing the htaccess file to prevent the url from changing.
As to the other options, will try to include those for next version
OK, I was able to use the fullscreen page background to achieve a similar result minus the portfolio description. The fullscreen slider handles the image differently than does the single portfolio, so this I couldn’t use. It stretches and zooms more than the portfolio or page background image does.
For the links though, these should definitely open in new tabs.. It really breaks up the browsing experience if someone wants to quickly visit the external Facebook and Twitter links, or access them after browsing your site. Almost all websites employ this method when linking externally. Another consideration: it would be nice if the @usernames in the Twitter widget also were linked and not just non-dynamic text, with a color to let the viewer know these are clickable (and subsequently open in a new tab).
Agree with you on both, the two are on the list already, thanks for your feedback. We’ll make the changes as soon as we get some time to do it.
Hello, as I put the description in the lightbox image?
Where, in the gallery items?
I just bought the essenza template and got stuck right away because the “essenza” menu inside admin area doesn\’t show up. Only the options as links, but no content at all.
I\’m running Essenza 2.4, on WP 3.9.1 on ffox 29.0.1 (mac).
Can you create a ticket in our support system, provide us some wp credentials so we can debug the problem
