Is it possible to use “recaptcha” on the contact form? Or possible to update contact form?
there is no such built in option. Usually I recommend Akismet plugin.
Hi there. Nice design!
Just a question before I buy it: Will I be able to edit the language to Swedish? And also, how does this design look on iPhone/iPad?
I’m also wondering if it’s possible to add icons for Twitter and Facebook to my blog posts so that people can share them. Is that option available?
1. yes, it’s translation ready.
2. It’s not responsive, but actually it looks pretty good on small devices.
3. I recommend AddThis plugin (free), which is supported.
Thanks for your quick reply! I will look into that plugin and purchase your theme as soon as I have set up my blog.
I followed your guide that came with the theme and everything went smooth until I got introduced to POEdit.
I did exactly as you described and I even checked for more details in the link that you provided, but it just won’t work.
After doing exactly as described I get this error message in POEdit:
12:42:12: Poedit did not find any files in scanned directories.
12:42:12: Entries in the catalog are probably incorrect.
12:42:12: Updating the catalog failed. Click on 'Details >>' for details.
Could you please help me out?
I tried once again and this time I didn’t get any errors. But I didn’t get to a “translate” section either. All that popped up was a summary.
But I saved the file to “sv_SE.po” (since I’m swedish and live in Sweden) and when I open the file in Notepad++ it says “Language: Swedish/n”, but everything’s still in english.
What should I do at this point?
Here’s what the file “sv_SE.po” starts with:
"Project-Id-Version: Fast Blog\n"
"POT-Creation-Date: 2013-10-04 13:04+0100\n"
"PO-Revision-Date: 2013-10-04 13:06+0100\n"
"Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8\n"
"X-Generator: Poedit 1.5.7\n"
Sorry for spamming, but I really wanna sort some things out..
I have tried this for hours now, but I still can’t get the translation to work. I did exactly as you described, named the file “sv_SE.po”, edited wp-config.php and put in “sv_SE”, edited functions.php and put in ”<?php load_theme_textdomain(‘fastblog_wp’); ?>” at the top. It even says “Swedish” in “sv_SE.po”, but the blog is still in english.
I have uploaded all files in the fastload-folder to my DB, including the sv_SE.po and sv_SE.mo.
Nothing seems to work for me.
I also can’t figure out how to edit the header. I’d like to have some more height to it.
I would really appreciate your help!
Thanks in advance.
1. rename xx_XX.po file in the fastblog/language folder to be sv_SE.po.
2. Open the file in poedit, translate and save.
3. Upload to server.
Don’t edit functions.php file at all.
You can edit header height in Appearance / Theme Options / Header.
Alright, thanks alot! I will try this out. One question though, since I’m all new to this stuff, do I really have to type in the translation manually or will it translate by itself?
Perhaps a noob question, but oh well.. lol.
There is no Swedish translation of the theme yet, so if you want to have one, you have to translate it (or part of it) by yourself.
I should have known that after all of these hours. Well, better late than never. Thanks a bunch again!
I hope you don’t mind me asking questions, although I try to figure out my issues on my own at first. But it’s always nice to ask the author when issues approach.
Ok, so I translated the whole sv_SE.po -file, saved it and uploaded it along with the sv_SE.mo -file. Some stuff got translated into swedish, but most of it is still in english (such as ‘recent posts’, ‘recent comments’, ‘archives’, ‘categories’ etc.)
Do I need to translate other files aswell in order to get my whole blog in swedish?
No, these phrases comes form WordPress itself, not a theme. If you’ve switched your WordPress to Swedish by editing the config file (instead of installing it in Swedish in a first place), you also need to upload WP Swedish transnational files to your server. You can find them here and upload to the wp-content\languages folder.
Oh, I didn’t realize that. That will help me out alot, thanks! I guess I’ll have to download every single file from all categories “branches/”, “mu/”, “tags/” etc. is that correct?
Ok, I figured it out. But all thanks to you! Thank you so, so, so much buddy! Finally, after massive amounts of hours, I have my blog in fully Swedish!
Now there’s just one last thing then I probably won’t bug you for a while.
Is there a setting to allow visitors to choose their own colorscheme? That would be awesome!
Wrong link, sorry. This is correct page with files with Swedish translation: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language#Swedish_-_Svenska_.28sv_SE.29
Thank you, everything’s working fine now!
Btw, does JetPack work with your theme?
Actually I haven’t fully tested JetPack with the theme, so I’m not sure.
This theme will have mobile versions?
I don’t plan to do that. However, it work’s quite well on mobiles without responsiveness.
I would like to add my own header (picture), but I’m not sure what size to go with. Do you know what size the header should be for your theme?
I would also appreciate if you could post the code for this.
use centered logo option, and make it 950px wide.
Alright, but how do I upload my own image? I have created a new header in Photoshop that I want to use.
Where do I put the .png-file and do I need to edit any files?
You don’t need to edit any files. Upload it to Media, and use its URL in Theme Options / Header / Logo field.
Oh, so that’s how it works. Thanks, all good now!
Is there a way changing the background aswell? Like using an image as a background?
There is no such option. Although, you can replace original background image schemes/[NAME]/images/bg.png in the theme folder with yours.
Our images when clicked aren’t using the fancybox for some reason? any suggestions for a fix?
can I see your site, please?
make sure you’ve checked “Use Fancybox to show images” option in Theme Options / Content / Images.
Use Fancybox to show images is checked.
There is problem with jQuery on your site. The “jquery-updater” plugin is removing default WordPres jQuery version (1.10.x), and adds the newest one (2.x), which causes the problem (and probably more other problems, because it’s not a good idea to mess with default WP jQuery).
That fixed it. Thanks. We were getting error messages from the Google Map Plugin saying JQuery was out of date so we added the jquery-plugin to fix it and obviously that made the fancybox not work anymore. We’ll look for another map plugin. Thanks again.
for some reason my site is not showing the most recent post? It shows the last post as first how can i change that? Also how to change the width of the comment box to make it the same size as the post box? All the questions for now thanks.
also forgot to mention gif images dont display as a gif moving image
can I see the site, please?
sent to your email.Thanks
I just purchased and installed this theme for a new blog on mobility. I was attracted by the simplicity and the iPhone app you identified. It turns out that the app is not available in the Canadian store and it seems that the theme is not responsive which is pretty shocking given the year we are in. I can’t launch a blog on mobility with a site that isn’t responsive! I don’t want to and should not need to install a plugin to make that happen. I would like to get a refund pls … this just doesn’t suit my needs (great theme for other purposes I’m sure).
I’m sorry you’re disappointed, but I haven’t stated anywhere it’s responsive. You’re right about the app, though – it seems it’s been removed from the market. I’ll take care of that. If you want a refund, please contact ThemeForest support. They deal with that kind of issues.
Hi—this is probably a dumb question, but how do I activate the contact page that I think came with the theme?
Please ignore my last question re:contact form. I figured it out.
However, I have a new question: how do I add my Twitter stuff to my sidebar widget? I created a Twitter app, but I don’t know how to incorporate that into my blog?
I added a contact page, but it looks messed up and I’m not sure why. Please advise: http://jeremyvest.com/contactjv/
it seems like you’ve used some plugin for that. Because of Internet Explorer 7 compatibility, theme’s input fields need some special care, and the plugin is not doing it right. I recommend you to use the built-in contact form. Just select “Contact form” as a page template.
How do I configure what email to use in ‘Contact Form’? I have created a new email and want to link it to the contact form on my page so that when people write to me I will receive it to my new email.
1. Create page with Contact form template.
2. Configure your form in Appearance / Theme Options / Contact form.
Thanks, that fixed it.
i need to know how to edit the thmem to look Right To Lift?
all the template because arabic language from right to left
There is no such option.
Any news if the express for wordpress app will return or not?
miss this app
I doubt that. Me too.
How will it look with a soundcloud post?
I would like to add a guestbook to my website, but I don’t really know how to do it. Is it possible to have a guestbook that “melts in” with this theme that I’m using?
there is no such built-in option. You would have to try some plugin for that, but I don’t know any to recommend.
Hello. In past I purchased this theme. The site I built is down. Can I use it in one new website now?
Great. Thanks a lot.
Hello, I bought your theme “Fast Blog” and I wonder, how can I put the menu “select skins” on my site? as it is on your site.
it’s the “Scheme switcher” widget. You can also create menu items to do the same job (copy links from the widget).
When testing my website with the fastblog theme in Google’s Structured Data Test I get the following errors:
Error: Missing required field “entry-title”.
Error: Missing required field “updated”.
Error: Missing required hCard “author”
Most fixes on the internet say to change certain lines in the single.php file. The fast blog theme does not have this file and I have searched the other files for similiar classes to the fixes for single.php and cannot figure out how to fix these structure errors. Can you help me?
The “Updated” error is referring to post/page date…
try the loop.php file.
I’ve attempted to change the code according to how others have fixed their templates but the errors are still present…
I’m sorry, but this kind of modifications are beyond the free support. If you need help with that, I recommend guys from Tweaky.
