  • in reply to: Update to 3.1.5 & footer widgets disappear #449396

    Hi Rikard

    Thanks for your help with this.

    I re-installed Enfold 3.1.5 and the widgets disappeared again, so then I went to check in the Widgets Inactive area but nothing was there, so then I toggled back to the web view and the widgets were in place in the footer.

    I’m happy that they are back, but it seems that a toggle between the two areas helped it somehow.

    Thanks again for your help Rikard.

    Thanks Rikard, it’s always much better with the child theme solution. Most times I also see your staff recommending the child solution, so perhaps that can be the first solution offered each time?
    In any case, your support is better than any theme provider I have ever used.
    cheers

    Thank you Elliot. This is so much better, anything in the child file is better, much appreciated.
    cheers

    Excellent, thanks Elliot. Is there anything I can do with this to move it into the child functions file?
    cheers

    Thank you Yigit, I’ll have a look at those lines of CSS. I really appreciate your ever helpful support, the Enfold team support is the best I have received anywhere.
    cheers

    Hi Yigit

    Thanks for your snippet. Do you know what activates the menu to do the left instead of the right? Is it a script that considers it too close to the viewport edge? If so, where can I find that script?

    cheers

    Hi xlguy, Elliott, Yigit, and any forum readers,

    Thanks for this thread—I too had an issue with the source order for the widget, so I experimented with the hooks but ended up reverting to Elliott’s suggestion.

    In visual/layout terms, I found the hook provided by Elliot is the only one that will enable the new widget to sit inside an Enfold div.container, important for positioning (left and right) purposes in many layouts (as at v3.1.3 with current choice of hooks).

    If you use a different hook such as the ava_main_header your positioning will be relative to the full viewport, since the widget won’t be nested inside a div.container (it will instead be a sibling of the main header first level container). This will usually not suit boxed layouts, nor layouts where your page is constrained to a specific maximum width.

    I also experimented by adding an html div with class of container in the widget CSS, but I quickly realised that the website content-managers are likely to accidentally remove it (or duplicate it) when editing widget content.

    As the moderator’s said, regardless of which hook you use, CSS is required to position the element.

    So I too reverted to using the ava_after_main_menu hook.

    I hope that helps anyone else weighing up the benefits or differences of the hook locations.

    While I was able to create the visual effect I needed, perhaps some more hooks can be added to future releases such that the elements within them make better semantic sense in the code hierarchy.

    cheers

    Günter, you’re a legend! Thank you, very much appreciated. Works like a charm.

    Excellent, thanks Yigit, I didn’t make the connection…much appreciated.

    Thanks Rikard. I have in the meantime worked out how to use the WordPress SEO by Yoast after some tips by Josue. Thanks for checking back in, much appreciated….all working well now.

    Josue’s tip here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/facebook-share-doesnt-work/#post-410865

    cheers

    in reply to: Facebook share doesn't work #410842

    Thanks so much Josue. I didn’t understand what it meant, but I have realised that the plugin adds an area at the base of each post, and is modifiable there on a per-post basis.

    I used the WordPress SEO plugin in the end.

    Thanks heaps Josue , much appreciated.

    cheers

    Hi Rikard

    It didn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. The tool only has settings for the home page. Plus my client doesn’t have a facebook page for this website, and the plugin seems to want a programmatic connection between two client resources: their website and their facebook page.

    I’ve looked at other posts with this problem but I can’t seem to find a solution.

    cheers

    Hi Ismael

    to be clear, the client does not own a facebook page for this website/campaign.

    cheers

    Darryl

    in reply to: Facebook share doesn't work #410765

    Hi Ismael

    I’m not sure if that is solving what the issue is. For example, the site I am working on is not my own, I am the developer. When I choose add Facebook admin it connects with my own personal facebook profile. Presumably my client would need a facebook page, and it seems that this Yoast function is more to do with the connection between client site and client facebook. But it seems this isn’t what the problem is about?

    Shouldn’t the Enfold social share tool have the ability to have the image associate with the post being shared? regardless of the client owning a facebook page?

    cheers

    Darryl

    Hi Rikard

    Thanks for your help with this. I thought that too, but the site is live now and the same issue exists. It is at http://www.womenofcanberra.org.au if you’d like to have a test.

    I can also send you admin access privately if you like.

    There are a number of sharing plugins that discuss not working with Enfold, and a couple of threads on the Enfold forums suggesting the same thing:

    http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/facebook-share-doesnt-work/

    I’m going to try the suggestion re the Yoast plugin and will write back my results.

    cheers

    Hi there

    I think this thread diverted immediately after the original post. I have the problem in the original post, which is NO image showing for the share tools when it is only a ‘featured image’ on the page.

    It’s not that I am getting a wrong image via facebook, I have no image choice at all, just the text.

    Unfortunately, I can’t send an example page as the domain is currently password-protected.

    But I hope it’s easy enough to understand.

    cheers

    in reply to: Live site de-coupled from theme option settings #408567

    Apparently the child theme name was indeed renamed (in the CSS), so I reverted it and it was all returned to the child design and theme settings.

    Then I decided to do a test by exporting the theme settings, renaming the child theme (atop the css, not the directory), importing the settings, and it all worked well with the exception of font information…the import doesn’t seem to carry font information? Does this sound correct?

    cheers

    in reply to: 'Read More' element within Masonry blog not working #403743

    Thanks for your help with this Ismael, much appreciated…you guys are always very helpful.

    Hi Elliot.

    Thanks for your help with this. I have found a way to do it via the individual blog post interface. It seems that setting an ‘image post’ rather than a ‘standard post’ achieves the effect I was after, which is for the image to retain it’s full area without being cropped to a different ratio.

    Good point re the screenshot, I will do that in future so it’s easier to understand.

    cheers

    in reply to: Using database to modify sidebar on multiple pages #401085

    OK, thanks for letting me know Ismael, I’ll learn about this method, seems like it will make development much faster. Much appreciated.
    cheers
    Darryl

    Hi Elliot

    Thanks for your help with this.

    My images will be both landscape and portrait images, so I can’t put a setting in here that constrains to one ratio or sizing. I’m hoping that the preview can be just the original ratio regardless of the image orientation, but fitting 100% width of the post setting.

    Is there a way that can be achieved via featured image and a different edit of that functions file?

    cheers

    in reply to: Using database to modify sidebar on multiple pages #399417

    Thanks heaps Ismael, I found which pages are using the particular sidebar. Much appreciated. If it is possible for me to bring up certain pages using the database, and then populate the meta_value with the custom sidebar name, will that then be reflected in the front end of the website?

    That would enable me a much quicker method of adding custom sidebars to multiple pages? If so, I don’t expect you to explain the steps to me, I will go online and learn about it, but please let me know if that is a possible way for me to update pages?

    cheers

    in reply to: Using database to modify sidebar on multiple pages #398798

    Thanks for your help with this Ismael. When I edit that field I thought it might list the current pages and potential pages. I don’t know much about these things, but I’ll keep poking around in there and see what I find.

    cheers

    in reply to: Using database to modify sidebar on multiple pages #398544

    I should also say, the new sidebar is an enfold custom sidebar widget.

    Gday Ismael

    OK, thanks for your help with this, I’d really like to keep the parent details intact for future updates, so this plugin should enable me to keep it separated…much appreciated.

    cheers

    in reply to: Email receipt issue on same domain as email address #397327

    Thanks Josue, if they can’t find a solution, that seems like a good workaround.
    Much appreciated

    in reply to: Email receipt issue on same domain as email address #397316

    Thanks Josue for your help, and I’m sorry I wasn’t clear.

    Here is a screenshot to explain better: http://screencast.com/t/9K5BnlVWDO

    It is when the form recipient address is the same as the domain, eg. the domain jdklegal.com.au has their contact form set to send to (Email address hidden if logged out) but it doesn’t reach the server. When I set their contact form to instead be my address as the recipient it does come to my server. I tested another person (their host technician’s personal email) and it also arrived safely in their inbox. So the tech queried whether if it is set to send to the same domain it might have an issue. I suggested that almost every form will be sent to some type of email on the actual domain that’s hosted so it didn’t seem to me plausible, but he suggested I ask the question and see if you’ve had any problems occur like this before?

    cheers

    Gday Elliot

    Thanks for your help with this. I’m using Mac Mail.

    Here’s a screenshot of where I have put full returns and soft returns. Most programs will display the soft returns without any space at all between them, or at least a tiny amount.

    It sounds like other email clients look different? Would you or anyone reading be able to show me a screenshot of their own message spacing displaying from within another client?

    in reply to: show submenu on click instant hover #393536

    Ah, that’s fascinating Josue. I didn’t check other browsers and this has reminded me to do so. I’m on a MacBook, Firefox latest version (35.0.1) and it doesn’t work. Though Safari and Chrome do. Does that mean Firefox may need additional js that functionally does the same thing?

    Edit: I just read some info on a Mozilla forum that might help: ” going to the top of the page is what href=”#” is supposed to do. If you have a JavaScript event and want to suppress the other link action, use “return false” at the end of it.”

    Does that make sense to you Josue? I don’t know how to do javascript, so I’m not sure how to test it.

    cheers
