  • in reply to: How to Disable Custom Error 404 Page #435208

    Hi Elliot

    Many thanks for sending me the link and for your suggestions. I was unaware that is was a WP issue and so I am doubly grateful.

    For anybody else reading this post the final solution was to replace the 404.php file in theme (in my case the child theme).

    I used the following code:

    
    <!-- 404.php -->
    
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>File Not Found</title>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" >
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
      background-color: #eee;
    }
    
    body, h1, p {
      font-family: "Helvetica Neue", "Segoe UI", Segoe, Helvetica, Arial, "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;
      font-weight: normal;
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
      text-align: center;
    }
    
    .container {
      margin-left:  auto;
      margin-right:  auto;
      margin-top: 177px;
      max-width: 1170px;
      padding-right: 15px;
      padding-left: 15px;
    }
    
    .row:before, .row:after {
      display: table;
      content: " ";
    }
    
    .col-md-6 {
      width: 50%;
    }
    
    .col-md-push-3 {
      margin-left: 25%;
    }
    
    h1 {
      font-size: 48px;
      font-weight: 300;
      margin: 0 0 20px 0;
    }
    
    .lead {
      font-size: 21px;
      font-weight: 200;
      margin-bottom: 20px;
    }
    
    p {
      margin: 0 0 10px;
    }
    
    a {
      color: #3282e6;
      text-decoration: none;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    <div class="container text-center" id="error">
      <svg height="100" width="100">
        <polygon points="50,25 17,80 82,80" stroke-linejoin="round" style="fill:none;stroke:#ff8a00;stroke-width:8" />
        <text x="42" y="74" fill="#ff8a00" font-family="sans-serif" font-weight="900" font-size="42px">!</text>
      </svg>
     <div class="row">
        <div class="col-md-12">
          <div class="main-icon text-warning"><span class="uxicon uxicon-alert"></span></div>
            <h1>File not found (404 error)</h1>
        </div>
      </div>
      <div class="row">
        <div class="col-md-6 col-md-push-3">
          <p class="lead">If you think what you're looking for should be here, please contact the site owner.</p>

    For anybody with the same problem, the fix was to switch to a normal gallery object. That works.

    in reply to: Masonry Gallery Does Not Show on Blog Pages 2+ #422963

    A very disappointing response Elliott!

    It is ridiculous to blame me. Masonry Galleries are a standard post editor menu item and also part of the 3.1 Advanced Code code editor.

    If they don’t work reliably in all situations then you should either

    a) fix them
    b) disable them
    c) display a warning message

    This kind attitude will lose you new customers, repeat business and earn you poor reviews on theme forest.

    in reply to: H1 Permalink #421367

    I’m pretty sure that you will need to create a child theme and override the avia_title function.

    
    if( get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'header', true) != 'no') echo avia_title(array('heading'=>'strong', 'title' => $title, 'link' => $t_link, 'subtitle' => $t_sub));
    

    I can almost guarantee you though that it won’t have any effect on your SEO. There are hundreds of millions of WordPress blogs out there with permalinks in the H1 tag and Google et al would be pretty silly if they started counting this as a negative ranking factor.

    in reply to: Contact form not Working on Enfold theme #216967

    Update:

    1. Switched from shared GoDaddy server to dedicated 1and1 server.
    2. Switched from GoDaddy email account to Gmail.
    3. Installed “WP-Mail-SMTP” and sent test message. PASS
    4. Sent test message from Enfold Contact Form. PASS

    I’m guessing that it was a firewall issue on the GoDaddy server.

    Can’t guess why direct send from WP-Mail-SMTP PASSED but the contact form FAILED.

    Any ideas?

    in reply to: Contact form not Working on Enfold theme #216918

    Same problem. Here is the fault finding I have done:

    Wordpress 3.8.1 With Enfold

    1. Installed “WP-Mail-SMTP” and sent test message. PASS
    2. Sent test message from Enfold Contact Form. FAIL

    3. Installed “Easy WP SMTP” and sent test message. PASS
    4. Sent test message from Enfold Contact Form. FAIL

    5. Installed “Contact Form 7″ and sent test message. FAIL
    6. “Grunion Contact Form” and sent test message. FAIL

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks Peter.

    I tried the child theme and unfortunately I lose all of the backend controls.

    in reply to: Meta Title #131951

    I think I’ve found the issue:

    function avia_set_title_tag()

    {

    $title = get_bloginfo(‘name’).’ | ‘;

    $title .= (is_front_page()) ? get_bloginfo(‘description’) : wp_title(”, false);

    $title = apply_filters(‘avf_title_tag’, $title, wp_title(”, false));

    return $title;

    }

    Your theme is fantastic!!!

    However, from an SEO point of view it’s generally considered best practice to go for 100% keyword prominence in the title tag.

    EG:

    Plumber London | Plumbers.Com

    is better than

    Plumbers.Com | Plumber London

    because each page will start with a unique phrase and if designed right would have 100% keyword prominence.

    What is the best way to fix this?

    Do I need to create a child theme?

    Kind Regards,

    Adrian

    PS: If it were me I would upgrade the theme and then add as a selling point that…

    Our title tags are designed for 100% keyword prominence.
