  • I think I understand now why Kriesi calculates the image the way he does, ’cause the calculation has to work no matter where the parallax section sits. E.g. if it is NOT the first row on a page, the image indeed has to cover the whole browser height.
    I am so used to having the first row as parallax image and a transparent header on top, that I didn’t think about it more.

    BUT, that doesn’t mean you/he shouldn’t consider applying another calculation for the first row (the header section if you will), because there the image always is smaller than the parent section and so it’ll always cut of the bottom.

    Hi Josue,

    I’ve been fiddling a little with the javascript, but since I am no java programmer, I can only try minor things and all those didn’t have the desired effect (the image was scaled correctly, but wasn’t positioned at the top anymore and so on).

    So I’ll have to wait if you guys or Kriesi comes up with anything, otherwise I’ll have to make use of some plugin do do what we need.

    I am having the same issue at another customer’s website, there we make use of the category headers in the shop. http://verlag-pfeil.de/fachrichtung/palaeontologie/

    We have stopped using other theme mostly because Enfold is the best, most complete and very well coded. But the parallax is not on par with others. For example they do it right: http://bridge9.qodeinteractive.com/about-us/ (and they have one of the very very few themes, that come close to Enfold – but they all use VC and I try to avoid it)

    At “scale-to-fit” it does apply the class “avia-full-contain” but if you select “no-repeat” it gets “avia-full-stretch”. Scale-to-fit almost never makes sense unless you have a square background image.

    And regarding the parallax calculation, that is not a feature request per se, but a hint, that something is not done the best way. Nobody would vote up some technicality like that, so it would be rather futile…

    :-(

    Hi Ismael,

    The height is calculated based on the browser height multiplied by avia-parallax-ratio plus the parent section height.

    I know, that’s exactly what I am saying is wrong resp. not very elegant. It would be better to ONLY use the parent section height multiplied by avia-parallax-ratio. Since we have no influence on the latter and cannot make that negative, the image size needed can never be higher than the parent section height and that is either fixed or a percentage (25%,50%,75%,100%) of the browser height. So if Kriesi would change the script to only use the parent section height for calculation, the whole thing would make much more sense.

    I am not against the usage of “cover” there, it make most sense most of the time, but without a proper height calculation the positioning of the image is almost useless.

    But apart from that, I still would prefer to be able to choose cover, contain or 100% – and surely will have to live with the results ;-)

    This is only set if you select the “Stretch to Fit” option.

    Not true, the avia-full-stretch class is always applied to any parallax image, no matter what you set in the options (e.g. see here http://dasschloss.info/ihr-event-im-schloss/). So it is a bug, right?

    Thanks Yigit, didn’t know about the .avia-mozilla class, easy then…

    in reply to: Sticky fullwidth Submenu at the bottom of the screen #587480

    Hi Ismael,

    it does look good and works, so I decided to stop calling it a workaround and think of it as a solution now ;-) So I am fine, thanks a lot.

    For all others: As written above I wanted to have a submenu below the slider on this site: http://o2bln.de/
    Instead of some complicated fiddling with the header height, the top-margin of the submenu when scrolled to top and so on I simply set the submenu to 72px height and moved the whole slider container up by 72px:

    #top .av-submenu-container { height: 72px; } 
    #fullscreen_slider_0  { margin-top: -72px; }

    The slider is cut off those 72px at the top, but I can live with that.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    in reply to: Sticky fullwidth Submenu at the bottom of the screen #585497

    Found a quick and dirty fix for the time being:

    .avia-builder-el-0.av-minimum-height-100 .container, .avia-builder-el-0.avia-fullscreen-slider .avia-slideshow {
        margin-top: -72px;
    }

    This essentially pushes the 100% container 72px to the top, cutting of the top of the slider, but I can present this to our customer in the hopes that you guys have a better solution for me.

    The way I see it we could either change the script for the sticky fullwidth submenu OR we could shorten the 100% container by 72px.
    In any case, I didn’t find any way to do it, so I am still hoping you have an idea.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    in reply to: Sticky fullwidth Submenu at the bottom of the screen #584775

    Hi again,

    I had another look myself at how the sticky fullwidth submenu script works, but as a non-programmer I couldn’t figure it out how to change the top-margin the script gives the container when scrolled up :-(

    So any input is more then welcome :)

    Cheers,

    Hi again,

    I’ve tried that, but got no response. Am I out of luck?

    Thanks

    in reply to: Category Posts in Custom Menu #255886

    Solved it myself. To remove MegaMenu, simply remove this line in functions.php (Enfold, not Child):

    /*
     * add support for responsive mega menus
     */
    add_theme_support('avia_mega_menu');

    Now the plugin works just fine ;-)

    Ismael, I get your support policy and everything. I know there’s got ot be a limit of what the support team can provide. But as soon as the theme itself changes or hooks into core wordpress functionality it often is simply not enough to “direct questions to the plugin author” as he/she has no way of knowing what your theme does.
    I know other theme author that have some kind of “premium forum”, where you pay a monthly fee for being able to ask the more complicated questions/requests. Still no big customisations, mind you, simply the questions that tend to be rejected, because they are out of the scope of free support.
    I for one would gladly pay a fee for something like this here too, as I tend to use only very few themes but am mostly relying on the support by teams like yours. Hiring a freelancer (actually I am one, but with a completely different focus/skill set) is often uneconomical, as they tend to have no idea about this or that theme and need an hour to find their way around the code, where the theme supporters need 5 minutes. So I’d rather pay you 10 bucks a month for 5 minutes than somebody else 50 bucks for one hour ;-)
    Just an idea…..

    Cheers

    Hi Ismael,

    ok, I understand that. But let me rephrase the question then, maybe you have a quick solution at hand because it came up already :-)

    Is there any way how t turn of the Mega Menu functionality in Enfold?

    in reply to: Reduce fixed header height #187168

    Found the problem, it was my Firefox. Tested in a VM and it works just fine. Thanks Yigit for your excellent help and your patience.

    in reply to: Reduce fixed header height #186882

    The animation is gone, when srolling down, the logo resizes abruptly. Scrolling back up the logo resizes smoothly though…

    in reply to: Reduce fixed header height #186871

    tbh, I see no difference to before :-(

    in reply to: Reduce fixed header height #186854

    Hi Yigit,

    thanks for your help and all your efforts. That didn’t work out as intended. Apart from the little gap (have a look) the logo is now “jumping”, i.e the resizing is not smoothly animated anymore, like it was before.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    in reply to: Reduce fixed header height #185846

    Almost, we’re getting there. Yeah… ;-)

    in reply to: Reduce fixed header height #185828

    Hi Ygit,

    thanks, but not quite…. I’ve been trying and trying and always had effects similar like that one now (have a look).

    That header is a tricky one ;-)

    Cheers,

    Michael

    in reply to: Reduce fixed header height #184872

    To specify: I am talking about reducing the expanded height, not the smaller height when the page is srolled down. A link might help ;-)

    in reply to: product category image sizes #130747

    I simply tricked it and used 930 x 430 images and renamed them to image-450×280. Stupid, but hell, the website has to go live at some point.

    Can somebody tell me a trick how to show the category header for categories, but not for subcategories?

    in reply to: product category image sizes #130745

    Hi Devin,

    thanks for your answer. And you are right, it is used there, but the demo doesn’t use the category image as a header and at the same time as thumbnails if you display categories and subcategories. E.g. the category picture here http://www.kriesi.at/themes/replete/product-category/women/ would be cropped and display nothing useful, if you’d enable “show subcategories” in the woocommerce settings/catalog/. That’s what we are trying to do and that’s what doesn’t work right :-(

    These are our category thumbnails: http://deinhardt.com/correct_cat_thumbs.jpg and this is what happens to them, when shown as category headers: http://deinhardt.com/large_cat_header.jpg

    So I guess it is nearly impossible to make use of the category images for thumbs AND as category header at the same time, right?

    Sure, we could use 990px wide images, but that would still crop the header image, where I don’t want it. And the other solution would be to simply leave our thumbs at 450px and then exchange each resulting thumb-450×280.jpg for each category header, but that kind of fiddling is exactly what I would like to avoid. Do you see my dilemma?

    Cheers,

    Michael

    in reply to: product category image sizes #130743

    Hi guys, thanks for your answers so far. I would still love to have a different image there. Let me explain why:

    Changing the image to full size doesn’t help much either. I guess not many people are using the category images at all or at least don’t show them there (By there I mean above the subcategories resp. products). For better differentiation/understanding let*s call the image shown on the category page “category header” (the one in the slideshow_container)

    If I would use 450×450 px, as intended by Kriesi, the category header will either be cut of and displayed too large (i.e. stretched) in the default setting, or simply displayed too large/stretched, if I use above modification.

    I could switch to larger category images, but as long as they are square or even in portrait format, the resulting category header image would be way to high. Obviously for the same design reasons, Kriesi has opted for a landscape orientation himself, but cropped and in the wrong dimensions.

    Naturally I might be doing something completely wrong, but if I am right this “category header” image is simply done wrong. Would you please be so kind and check that? It is not used in the demo, so I can’t verify it there.

    Ideally we can find a way to have a different image as the category header, as nothing else makes much sense, imho. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Cheers,

    Michael

    in reply to: product category image sizes #130741

    That doesn’t explain the behaviour of the header image. That’s actually my biggest problem right now, all other things I can solve. But that image is driving me crazy. Could you point me to the part of the template, where that is loaded? I would like to have a different image there, since the current setup makes no sense at all (As written before: It also uses another size, 450x280px and displays that as a header image in the category, but in 780x485px. See http://deinhardt.com/sizes2.jpg )

    in reply to: product category image sizes #130739

    Hi Devin,

    those are not used by woocommerce products or product categories. So there are even more thumbs generated, but then they are not used correctly.An example:

    I upload category1.jpg with 450x450px. Next to all the other sizes the image is resized to 308x308px (my product image settings in woocommerce). The theme uses the 308px thumb, but resizes the images again, depending on the number of columns in the shop layout.

    See http://humanclean.de/sizes1.jpg

    It also uses another size, 450x280px and displays that as a header image in the category, but in 780x485px.

    See http://humanclean.de/sizes2.jpg

    See what I mean?

    I really would love to hear from someone about this, as we plan to go live next week and if there’s no solution, we’d have to consider alternatives…
