Hi, does this theme work with self-hosted videos?. I want to insert an HTML video tag in the post content and be able to play the video in the masonry view page. Thanks.

Hi,

This particular theme doesn’t have native support for self hosted videos on the homepage. However, our Total theme (which is a multi-purpose theme) does and you can see a similar masonry demo here – http://totaltheme.wpengine.com/mason/

This theme uses featured media at the top and creates auto excerpts so inserting it into the content won’t display it on the homepage unless you tweak things to display the full post content on the homepage, which for most people isn’t ideal. The whole purpose of how the theme functions is so that the media can be above the title/text. So the video would be added via the media field – https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/docs/adding-videos-to-posts/ – and it supports embeded and self-hosted videos.

You can visit the theme page here – https://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019 – and while it is a more robust theme if you are looking for a simple blog you can always disable anything you won’t be using to keep the theme fast and optimized while still allowing you the ability to enable stuff if you do want it in the future.

I’m trying to activate the zillalikes plugin but it says it needs updating from version 1.0 to 2.0 before it can be activated. When i follow the update link, it updates and still is version 1.0. I downloaded the latest version manually and uploaden it to my site by ftp. Now i got version 1.2 and it still says it needs updating. I follow the link and it ‘updates’ to version 1.0…

i’m stuck, any ideas? Thanks!

regards, Pieter

Hi Pieter,

The theme has it’s own version of the plugin which I highly modified to fix a bunch of bugs in the original plugin and better optimize it (I should rename it actually to avoid confusion). So the plugin version you need is the one inside the theme which you should be able to upload via Appearance > Install Plugins. Here it is as well for you: https://cl.ly/kRB1

ps: I saw you opened a ticket as well and I replied there as well but it appears my email response may have been rejected by your server :(

When i use pagination style ‘Load more’ or ‘infinite scroll’ the little heart of the zillalikes-plugin does not work in the dynamically loaded items. It looks like they are not binded to the click-event. Any ideas?

Regards, Pieter

Hi Pieter,

Thanks for the heads up, this should be an easy fix ;)

Can you try extracting this folder – https://cl.ly/kkPr – and updating via FTP/SFTP inside the theme’s main folder? It should fix things up.

Aj, any news on WooCommerce for fashionista? I have a new design product in the furniture category that I like to test market and I need clean looking theme. Cheers, Alex

Question for you – I’d like to switch the blog to a more list view with a right hand sidebar. But it appears to be hard coded to default to masonry view. How do I do this?

Hi,

You can enable the sidebar via the Customizer settings under Appearance > Customize > Theme Settings > Layouts.

See here: https://cl.ly/mC56

You can also go to the “Entries” tab and change the columns to 1 column if you prefer – https://cl.ly/mC5s

You need to make sure your theme is up to date though to access these settings since it was updated recently with these new settings.

ps: I noticed your support license has expired, if at this time you can renew your support license I would really appreciate it. You can also purchase a new copy of the theme for another site/client and it will also renew your support. The theme is currently 50% off so you will save a lot renewing right now, the sale does end tomorrow though!

How do I change the overall black color theme to a different color? Thanks

Hi there,

I actually just responded to you regarding this via the support ticket site please feel free to write back there for any follow questions, thanks ;)

And actually if more people request it I’ll go a head and add a built-on option to the theme and update it so you can switch out the black with 1 click but currently no one has requested this feature yet.

I’ve installed the new version and I get this error on my site: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/w5000022/public_html/wp-content/themes/wpex-fashionista/inc/theme-customizer.php on line 879

Hi,

This happens if your server’s PHP version is very outdated. The theme uses an anonymous function for the Customizer. These functions were introduced in PHP version 5.3 – http://php.net/manual/en/functions.anonymous.php – you’ll just need to contact your webhost to have them upgrade the server.

But WordPress actually states requirements for PHP version 7+ – https://wordpress.org/about/requirements/ – of course I would also recommend it, but some budget hosting companies don’t offer it, so I would say if you can at least update to 5.6+ that would be a good idea.

Hi AJ, I like to make each window in the rows in my Fashionista theme the same size and show the images inside the frame at different sizes. Is there a plug in. Here is the link: http://alexstenzel-art.com

Alex

Do what?

Where do I adjust the max-height and max width in fashionista. You are saying once the images are evenly cropped the frames are all the same size.

The “frame” as you call it will depend also on the length of your titles and excerpts as well so if you want those exactly the same you will need to use custom CSS or javascript as mentioned previously so that you can either set a fixed height via CSS or use javascript to locate the tallest entry and set the height of all entries based on that one (and run this javascript on window load and window resize).

To alter the image sizes of your site you would do so under Appearance > Customize > Theme Settings > Image Sizes: https://cl.ly/nisA

Here you define your sizes then you need to use a 3rd party plugin to “regenerate” the thumbnails. I recommend this one – https://wordpress.org/plugins/force-regenerate-thumbnails/
