Hi, first of all, sorry for my english, I’ll try my best.
I’m a beginner on Wordpress and i bought your perfectcv theme. I wanted to know if there is a way to make from this theme a double language page that you can switch buy clicking on a flag for example? It would be awesome if i can do a french CV and an english one on the same site.
Hi, thanks for purchasing. This would need to be done with a plugin or custom coded… sadly not something we can assist you with. The theme is .pot ready however.
Is it possible to add a new social network?
I’d like to put my viadeo profile (french social network). You can find what i’m talking about here : https://www.viadeo.com/

Hi, thanks for purchasing. Yes, in the Theme customizer at the end of list of social network fields, you have another one for adding a custom one. Let us know if you find it.
Hi, thanks for your answer.
I dont have any social network tab in the theme customizer : https://gyazo.com/db8a4a1ae6cd5a81d3769696df62e7ed
And i don’t see anything to customize a social network.
Sorry to being annoying, I’m pretty new on Wordpress.
Oh, sorry, confused your question with another theme of ours. We haven’t introduced the feature for custom social icons yet on perfectcvwp. How are you with FTP? I suggest you add any other social media that you’re not using (like Google+) and just overwrite the icon with this viadeo one. If you’re having trouble customizing that, you can email us access to do it for you.
The fonts do not load when site is HTTPS because they seem to be from Google API hardcoded with HTTP and modern browsers block HTTP traffic from within HTTPS sites. Could you advise on how to fix this?
Hey, thanks for purchasing.
I assume you’re using the default fonts that came with the theme?
In that case, it does need some editing to work on both http and https. In functions.php on line 102, change:
$pcv_goofont_url = ‘http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Arvo:400,700|Droid+Sans:400,700';
$pcv_goofont_url = ’//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Arvo:400,700|Droid+Sans:400,700’;
Let us know if that helps.
Hi, Yes that’s gonna work. Is there any way to make this independent from Google API? And are there any other external sources I might have to change?
Hey, you can edit the CSS to pick the files from your server… but unless you have a really good server, we recommend keeping googleapis.
Okay so I leave it with Google API, but there is another question. How do I create pages which use the same title styles as the CV page like “Experience – where I worked”? When I create a new page the colours are changed and below the title there is the publishing date. But I would like to add additional pages to the CV with exactly the same style as the HomePage but at another separate page because it will be too long. E.g. for a list of academic writings listed per year or per topic, etc. For example instead of “Experience – where I worked” I would like to create a separate page with “Philosophy – My academic writings about Philosophy” and 2-3 more topics like this. I know how I can create additional sections for the CV but they are then listed at the same page as all the other stuff.
Hi, we didn’t design the theme with this option in mind, but it should still be possible. You can select the home template on the right side when posting the page. Let us know if you see the Page template option.
Yes this works but it gives me exactly the same content and titles as on the main homepage. I would like to have different titles and content on the second page.
Ah, sorry, the theme doesn’t have that functionality. You can either custom code that, or install additional WP on subdomains…
Sad. So I try to put all on one site and save some space elsewhere. How do I make for example the Company and School names smaller? They are extremely huge and if I have a lot of them it takes too many space. Also, if I add new sections why they do not appear in the navigation even if I set it to automatic navigation? Also, how do I change the contact me background since I the green background doesn’t look so nice with the blue titles.
Hi, in terms of the size and colors – this would be a custom change. You’d need to edit the CSS directly. The CSS is clean and organized, so if you have basic knowledge of CSS, it shouldn’t be a problem to do this. But PerfectCV is a lightweight CV theme, we never planned to have a fully editable panel for design options.
As for the menu – have you assigned the automatic menu in Appearance -> Menus to the top position?
How do I get rid of the shadows?
Hi, thanks for purchasing. Which shadows do you mean? The ones around the box that holds all the content, or?
Hi, please i purchased this theme and did the payment before making an account.. i did not get anything !!!
I am afraid my money has gone!!!!!!!!
Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, please contact Envato Custom support, they can assist you with this. Regards
Do you have a “getting started” tutorial or FAQ? I’ve installed it and made a few changes but a general overview would help. thanks
Hi, we do have a documentation online: http://pixeldizajn.com/documentation/
Any questions – let us know.
My CV header menu not working any more.
Now, when I click menu like “Education”, “Experience”, it doesn’t show the corresponding content.
The homepage not showing the content listed by CV header menu.
Hopefully you could help me with this. Thanks in advance.
I finally solved the problem after setting the homepage as the front page. Thanks any way.
Hey, glad you sorted it out. Sorry for the late reply.
Hi! I purchased this theme yesterday and am having a number of small, but annoying problems: 1. Under ‘Header’ the ‘Horizontal Line Width’ control doesn’t do anything. The preview will change size, but the final page after saving always returns the line to same size, cutting into my name. 2. My pictures never load/stick. No matter the format/size, I can’t get any pictures to show up that I upload. This includes the picture of myself (renders as a blank white circle with the word ‘picture’ in it) and a custom email icon for a secondary email (couldn’t find a way to reuse your icon to save my life, mine just doesn’t show up at all) 3. Is there no way to add a button to download a resume/CV document? I had thought this was a feature of this theme. Can you give me some guidance if I need to add this myself for some reason (disappointing if that’s not a built-in option). Thank you!
Hey, thanks for purchasing!
1) and 2) Do you perhaps have a caching plugin turned on? Some web hosts have this by default. If not, we’d need your website URL or we’d need you to check the console for any errors that get thrown when you save the customizations.
3) The theme is print ready, so people usually add a print button, and all modern browsers have a save as a PDF option. That’s why we didn’t add this feature. There are also some WP plugins that do this, if you want to add it yourself.
I’m not seeing any caching plugin enabled, just ‘Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades’ and ‘Post Types Order’ plugin. However, with my Chrome Console enabled, I get the following error when I go into the Customization page: “GET http://jamespaine.info/getimagesize_error_common 404 (Not Found)”. Moving between sections of the customization screen and saving doesn’t generate any errors. However, when I try to remove or upload a picture of myself, or an icon picture in the contact me section, more ‘GetImageSize’ errors are thrown up. When I then try to scroll down on the page after a failed upload, a whole series of erors of ‘Uncaught Errors’ are generated “Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: [href=#about_me]”. So I’m thinking this is a problem! As for the button to download a CV, I worked around that via a direct link in the menu section.My site is: http://jamespaine.info
Cheated a bit and used ftp to overwrite the ‘mypic.jpg’ file in the img directory with my own image. I’m a bit annoyed I had to go that route for this otherwise super smooth paid theme, but it worked. Still having issues with the header line cutting into my name and I still can’t get the image for the email icon to load.
Also I just noticed that I can’t get rid of the RSS button. No matter how many times I check that box, the RSS button still appears. What’s wrong with my site?
Hey, tried to see what’s wrong but no luck so far. Thank you for your patience. I’ll have our main php coder look into this.
Hey, just found out it could be a problem with GD – does your web host have that installed and enabled?
I’ll look into this for sure. I’m not 100% sure how to check, but I’ll poke around. I’m trying to figure out where I can directly enter Apache commands now (this is all a bit new to me, thank you for your patience!)
Hi, looking into this more, it seems your server isn’t generating the CSS file. Might be a chmod issue.
custom-styles.php needs to generate the above.
Hi, when I try to do a double indentation on a bulleted list, the font gets really big, do you know how I can make it be the same as any bulleted list with regular indentation?
Hi, in which section are you trying to do this? Just a blog post or?
