Hi,

Great templates.

I update my site everyday with posts, and today I have noticed that the “Enable Zoom” option on each post is not working.

I check the box to activate it but the images in the post don’t zoom.

My website: www.pittalkasia.com.

How can I fix this?

Thanks

Hi, the “Enable Zoom” only applies to the featured image on top https://cl.ly/2W3P3V270l3k

After checking it, we found a problem that needs to be fixed for that feature to start working again anyways.

I will update this thread when we solve it. It will probably involve a theme update.

Regards, Luis.

Hi,

Is there a way to increase the amount of posts appearing on the front page blogroll? My front page looks like it’s missing a 13th post at the bottom. URL: www.pittalkasia.com

Thanks

Hi, increase this number to 13 https://cl.ly/2X2H3D2E2v1T and use this option https://cl.ly/1H1r3p140O41

Hi,

I’ve just tried to put a new ST Posts widget on my default sidebar, showing the videos category (using the slug). But when I check the site, the post list is not showing. Website, theme, plugins have been updated. I don’t know what else can be stopping the ST Posts widget from showing. Thanks

Sorry don’t worry, I figured it out.

Hi,

How do I get this tab menu: http://imgur.com/a/BuG0q

I want it to show the latest video, then maybe in the second tab (recent) have a list of other video posts. Then I want it to appear in the sidebar.

Thanks

Where did you see that thing? post the url and maybe I can tell you how to do it.

Bottom of the Sports sample page: http://strictthemes.com/shockmag-2/

and bottom of the Shortcodes page: http://strictthemes.com/shockmag-2/shortcodes/

WP Review plugin is in charge for that. Go to “Appearance -> Widgets” and add it’s widget to “Footer Sidebar 1” https://cl.ly/230l0A2H1L3d https://cl.ly/2l3y1j0y320i

I’m not sure if you’ll be able to do what you want with this method because you don’t have control over the categories with that widget. You better try with ST Posts.

Hello, I need to add a comment system that supports facebook/twitter logins. How can it be done with this template?

Hi, we haven’t tested any plugin with that functionality with our themes. I’m afraid that you’ll need to test them out and see which one works nice with the theme. There are plenty of them, I’m sure you’ll find one that works.

Regards, Luis.

Hi StrictThemes, I’ve set the sidebar position to be on the right in the ShockMag layout settings (https://pasteboard.co/dEarQrUyA.png), but on all WooCommerce pages, the sidebar still displays on the right (https://pasteboard.co/dEdp5ry4o.png). I want the sidebar to be consistently on the right on ALL pages. Please help!

Hi, after investigating this thing we found a bug that needs to be addressed. In the mean time just edit woocommerce.php line 32 and change the word ‘left’ for ‘right’ https://cl.ly/3s2r2e360Y0T . We will release an update when it’s fixed.

Regards, Luis.

Hi Luis, Thanks for the reply. I searched for that particular string of code in woocommerce.php (both versions: the one in the woocommerce folder and the one in the shockmag theme folder) but there was no string of code containing ”$st_[‘sidebar_position’]”. I would share the file here except it’s not possible to upload files.

Couple of things here, don’t edit any files inside woocommerce plugin folder. The file woocommerce.php should be inside your theme folder and if you are using a child theme and the file is not there just copy it from the parent theme to the child one without removing the file from the parent theme. Then look on line 32, you will see it.

If you still don’t find it please reach me by email at support@strictthemes.com and we will take it from there.

Regards, Luis.

So, I made the mistake of purchasing this theme without first checking if Visual Composer was supported…

Unfortunately I am migrating an existing site to this theme that relied heavily on VC. I’ve seen in previous comments you mentioned that you planned on adding it in the future. Do you have any idea how soon this will happen?

Thanks,

Hi, we don’t have any release date yet. We have been putting a lot of effort trying to make things as easy as possible using our themes so nobody has to rely in third party plugins to get the most of it. It is still in our roadmap but can’t tell you when will it be ready.

Regards, Luis.

Hello, The Ads Pro Plugin / Settings/ Payment Settings/ is requiring a purchase code, where do I find it if I need it to unlock the pro settings? I’m asking since this plugin was offered as a bonus. Thanks

Hi, sorry for the late response. Send me an email to support@strictthemes.com and I’ll send you instructions to activate.

Regards, Luis.

Hi Nat, I have a couple of questions, hope you can help me out.

1 – I want to change the color and the opacity of the gradient behind the featured image in the wrapper on the mainpage (over the large category image) 2- How can I can I change the text of “YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE”. “2/3 MONTHS AGO etc” “MOST VIEWED” these aren’t translated in my dutch wordpress. Please help me out. 3 – Do you have a sheet of CSS styles that I can add to the custom CSS to change all the colors manually within the theme? Now it’s controlled by just 2 colors primary and secondary..hope so..

Thanx.

Hi,

1. Here you have the css rules to modify it as you like. Just paste it in “Theme Panel->Style->Custom” and play with the values.

/** Big Background Image **/
#header.header-bg:before
{
background: linear-gradient( to bottom, rgba(237,37,137,0.25) 0%, rgba(17,17,17,1) 100% ); /* This will turn it purpleish */
}

/** Frist Post Image **/
.post-sticky-a-yes-thumb a > div:before
{
background: linear-gradient( to bottom, rgba(237,37,137,0.25) 0%, rgba(17,17,17,0.8) 100% );
}

/** Second Post **/
.post-sticky-b-img
{
box-shadow: 0 0 0 150px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1) inset;
}

2. You have to create a language file based on default(.po .mo) found on “assets/lang” and translate the missing strings with something like PoEdit the save your new language files on the same folder.

3. There is not such list. Almost everything is base on those two colors. If you need to change a specific color you will have to right click the element and “inspect” then override the class via Theme Panel.

Regards, Luis.

Hi Luis, thank you for your answer. Is it in someway possible to replace the background image in the theme with a movie from let’s say Youtube in the CSS code? thanx!

Hi, there is no easy way to do that. It is possible though but will need some custom modifications, not only a few css lines.

Regards, Luis.

Hi.

I have over 100k rows in wp_options table because of:

transient_timeout_st_related_posts
transient_st_related_posts
transient_timeout_st_most_viewed_posts
transient_st_most_viewed_posts
transient_st*

making the website very very slow.

MySQL slow query reported that.

Most of them are expired transients.

What can I do about this?

Thank you

Hi. Thanks for your response.

That’s not the case though.

I don’t need a plugin. I run a mysql query to delete all related transients generated by your theme.

After 12 hours there are 30k rows regenerated in options table and the website is very very slow.

I have set cache to off in theme’s options but I can see that

transient_timeout_st_related_posts
transient_st_related_posts
transient_timeout_st_most_viewed_posts
transient_st_most_viewed_posts
transient_st*

are regenerating in options table immediately.

A big site with a lot of visitors and over 25k of articles working a lot better without transients.

How can I disable it?

Thank you

Any help on how to disable the cache? Making my website very slow.

Hi, there’s no “on/off” button for the use of transients. we are looking into it because the transient setting is mainly driven by the theme in this case and will need some heavy modifications. I’ll keep you updated with this when we head to a better solution. It was in our roadmap tho..

Regards, Luis.

Hi, are you using jetpack? other users are experiencing this issue when updating to 5.1 but there is an easy fix, please let me know.

Regards, Luis.

Hi! I’m interested in your ShockMag theme. I want the theme looked exactly like on the demo. http://strictthemes.com/shockmag-3/ Are these settings already implemented by default or there’s need to customize them manually?

Hi, we have documented the steps to set up the site like any of our demos http://strictthemes.com/shockmag/how-to-build-a-site-from-scratch-like-on-live-preview-3/

If you find any difficulties during the process you can always reach us here.

We can also offer a service to set it up for you at an extra cost.

Regards, Luis.
