  • in reply to: Read more quicktag doesn´t work #49236

    Hey,

    I’m not sure I understand your issue. In WP Admin, you should be able to see the More tag within the post editing screen (both in Visual and HTML mode). You shouldn’t be seeing the tag in the sites’ frontend, the more tag is designed to limit the amount of content displayed through use of the_excerpt(). On a full post viewing (on the individual post page, or if the whole article is meant to be displayed) you won’t see the More tag or any reference to it.

    If this is still an issue, please elaborate and provide direct URL’s to the problem. The clearer you can make the issue for us to see, the higher the chance we can offer a prompt resolution.

    in reply to: Adjusting Header Height #49172

    Hey,

    You need to add a CSS declaration to adjust the header height. Open up /css/custom.css and under the line that reads:

    /* Have fun adding your style here :) - PS: At all times this file should contain a comment or a rule, otherwise opera might act buggy :( */

    add this code:

    #header {
    height: 100px;
    }

    Obviously, adjust the height (100px) as required. You may also find as a knock on effect that other elements need adjusting, if this is the case I recommend installing FireBug to assist you in finding the elements to change.

    in reply to: Read more and.. #48821

    Hey,

    Using Firebug, I can see that the CSS controlling the style of the Read More links can be found here:

    .wrapper a, #main #sidebar .textwidget a {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #FF9000;
    color: #777777;
    }
    style1.css (line 214)

    .wrapper a {
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    style.css (line 756)

    .more-link {
    background: url("../images/skin1/bullet_orange.png") no-repeat scroll right 15px transparent;
    }
    style1.css (line 206)

    .more-link {
    display: block;
    line-height: 16px;
    padding: 9px 0 0;
    width: 72px;
    }
    style.css (line 735)

    You can modify the style by editing the elements, or create your own styles and include them at the end of the style.css file. Note that the style1.css file is in the CSS folder in the theme directory.

    To modify the search form, open up footer.php and on line 73 you should find this code:

    <div id='sitesearch_footer'>
    <h4>Search Site</h4>
    <?php get_search_form(); ?>
    </div>

    You can modify the text or remove the element as needed.

    in reply to: Contact form not Linking correctly #48787

    Hey,

    Can you post the site URL so I can see the problem 1st hand? This sounds like a problem with the link rather than the contact page but I won’t know for sure until seeing it.

    in reply to: Making the feature area background color #000000 #47608

    Hey,

    In css/dark-skin.css (line 28), change this:

    body {
    background: #222222;
    color: #EEEEEE;
    }

    to this:

    body {
    background: #000000;
    color: #EEEEEE;
    }

    You can use Firebug to help you locate which sections of the theme are controlled by CSS and where to change it.

    in reply to: Change the way Categories and Tags are displayed #47600

    Hey,

    The get_template_part() is a WP function which allows templates of sections of code (such as the loop) to be written once and called in many places, similar to the way CSS allows you to style something once and use it in many places.

    The single.php file calls this function:

    get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'index' );

    so, the file relative to the current file (single.php) is in the includes folder and called loop. In this case the index parameter means the file should be called loop-index.php (which falls back to loop.php if loop-index.php didn’t exist.

    In this file, you can modify the meta info section to change the output of the Categories and Tags:

    <!--meta info-->
    <div class="blog-meta">

    <span class='post-date-comment-container'>
    <span class='date-container'><span><?php the_time('d') ?></span><strong><?php the_time('M') ?> <?php the_time('Y') ?></strong></span>
    <span class='comment-container'><?php comments_popup_link("<strong>0</strong> ".__('Comments','avia_framework'), "<strong>1</strong> ".__('Comment' ,'avia_framework'),
    "<strong>%</strong> ".__('Comments','avia_framework'),'comments-link',
    "<strong></strong> ".__('Comments<br/>Off','avia_framework')
    ); ?>
    </span>

    </span>

    </div><!--end meta info-->

    Hope this helps.

    in reply to: Center the top menu #45830

    Hey,

    You can modify the CSS to add margin to the left / right of the menu – bear in mind this is specific to your menu and will need manual intervention to check and adjust as necessary if the menu items are changed in future.

    In style.css (around line 256), you should find this code:

    #top .main_menu .avia_mega {
    height: 34px;
    line-height: 34px;
    padding: 20px 0 0;
    position: relative;
    z-index: 100;
    }

    Add margin: 0 200px; so it looks like this:

    #top .main_menu .avia_mega {
    height: 34px;
    line-height: 34px;
    padding: 20px 0 0;
    position: relative;
    z-index: 100;
    margin: 0 200px;
    }

    Hope this helps!

    in reply to: Where do I upload our logo? #47567

    Hey,

    The default logo is in the images folder; where this is depends on the colour scheme you’ve chosen. For the safest option, replace logo.png with your logo in each of these folders: images, images2, images3, images4 and images5.

    in reply to: Making Search bar in header smaller? #47561

    Hey,

    In style.css (line 2148) you can adjust the width of the search box:

    #s {
    border: medium none;
    padding: 10px 30px 10px 10px;
    position: relative;
    width: 200px;
    }

    Change 200px to whatever value you’d like (e.g. 160px).

    in reply to: Sleekslide Linked In Blog Updates Not working #47558

    Hey,

    I have never used any system which imports the Linked In profile. Can you post a link to the page which provided instructions you followed?

    I can have a look into this, but this is beyond the scope of the support forum (which primarily focuses on helping users get their theme set up as per the demo).

    in reply to: I cannot write in greek! How can i do that? #47542

    Hey,

    You may find that the custom font files don’t include Greek characters, but regular page text should display the page correctly. You can correct this by replacing the font files with a copy that includes Greek characters rather than the default a-z and some symbols.

    Have you set the language of your site to Greek (i.e. the WP Admin pages are in Greek)?

    James

    in reply to: Picture Background #47541

    Hey,

    You can set a background image using CSS, the height and width of the image don’t need to be specified. If the image is small and should repeat an example of the CSS declaration is:

    .my-class { background: url(path/to/image.jpg) repeat center top; }

    If the image is large and shouldn’t repeat you can use this example CSS declaration:

    .my-class { background: url(path/to/image.jpg) no-repeat center top; }

    Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

    in reply to: New logo overriding Menu #47536

    Hey,

    1.) To fix the logo problem, please complete the following steps:

    a.) Open up style.css

    b.) On line 84 remove the top attribute:

    #top .logo a {
    border: medium none;
    left: 0;
    outline: medium none;
    top: 23px;
    }

    This will then default back to the original 13px.

    c.) On line 71, adjust the width and height to match your image (100px by 600px), once completed should look like this:

    #top .logo, #top .logo a {
    border: medium none;
    display: block;
    height: 100px;
    left: 20px;
    position: absolute;
    top: 13px;
    width: 600px;
    z-index: 10;
    }

    d.) Save and upload style.css to your server.

    2.) To remove the Submit News button, open up header.php and remove this code (lines 165 – 174 in the original unmodified template):

    <?php
    // submit news button
    if($k_option['contact']['membernews'] != 2) {
    if(($k_option['contact']['membernews_who'] != 2 && current_user_can('level_0')) || $k_option['contact']['membernews_who'] == 2)
    {
    ?>
    <a id='submit_news' rel="prettyPhoto" class='ie6fix' href="<?php echo get_bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/submit_news.php?iframe=true&width=420&height=580"><?php _e($k_option['contact']['submit_news_text'],'newscast'); ?></a>
    <?php
    }
    } ?>

    in reply to: Index Page and Dynamic Template #47529

    Hey,

    The avia_get_frontpage_template(); in header.php checks for a custom template and applies this where necessary (i.e. where you’ve set a custom page template).

    Can you double check that the frontpage is set correctly in the theme options page, and that your Reading settings (WP Admin > Settings > Reading) are set to Your Latest Posts rather than a static frontpage this is the only obvious reason I can think of that would change the intended functionality of the homepage.

    James

    in reply to: Make image active in colums #47528

    Hey,

    I can pass this back to Kriesi as feedback which may be included in an update. Currently there is no way built into the theme to do this but you could modify the header section to add the code (or a widget area and a widget).

    in reply to: Cannot chose categories for the portfolio #47400

    Hey,

    Did you set up the Categories under Posts or Portfolio? They need to be set up as Portfolio Categories, I believe you also need to have at least one portfolio entry assigned to each category (on the right side of the screen when creating / editing a portfolio entry) before the category will show up in the list.

    Did you manage to get the menu fixed?

    I tried to check but the site doesn’t seem to be loading at the moment…

    in reply to: Fatal Error Maximum Execution time of 30 Seconds exceeded #47384

    Hey,

    This is a problem with your hosting account as the server your site is on has either too fewer resources to handle your site or more likely there are far too many sites on the server. Who’s your host?

    The simple solution is to use a better host with a larger percentage of resources directed towards your site, either through switching to another provider or increasing your account limits.

    in reply to: help! make it more attractive for sponsors and visitors #47357

    Hey,

    Unfortunately this support forum doesn’t cover modifications to your theme, but rather to assist people getting set up with the theme and some very basic modifications, or at least pointing people in the right direction.

    If you’re looking to hire someone to help you make your modifications, there is a thread over at Theme Forest just for this: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/so-you-know-how-to-customize-a-template-and-want-to-make-some-money/24795

    in reply to: Images #47282

    Hey,

    Glad you got this bug solved.

    Regarding the modified code you posted above, try removing the line for the top positioning (top: 13px); I tried this with Firebug and it improved the look of the header. Normally I’d say you should modify the position of other elements around the header but the background is controlled by an image so required editing if you want to do this.

    Hey,

    Can you post your site URL so we can see the modifications you’ve made so far?

    James

    in reply to: Blog Width for Full width page #47118

    Hey,

    The single pages use the single.php template which has the set width of 620px regardless of the post by default.

    You can modify the CSS (most easily by utilising the individual post class added to the body tag – see the HTML source to work out which one to use) to do this, I’d suggest you use the included custom.css file to add your own modifications so they aren’t overwritten as theme updates are released.

    James

    in reply to: Menu in footer not displaying properly #45981

    Hey,

    I’ve looked over your site and have found the problem. Please update the code in custom.css to replace the existing code with:

    #top .widget_nav_menu .avia_mega > .current-menu-item,
    #top .widget_nav_menu .avia_mega > .current-menu-item > a, #top .widget_nav_menu .avia_mega > .current-menu-parent {
    background-color: transparent !important;
    border-top: none;
    }

    This should now fix the background colour problem.

    in reply to: No "Autoplay that stops on user interaction" #47312

    Hey,

    This is possible though would require resonable modification of the theme to acomplish. I can pass your comments onto Kriesi to consider your feature request for future updates.

    James

    in reply to: How to enable comments in the template builder? #47306

    Hey,

    I don’t believe comments are a part of the Template Builder options, nor is the whole post content displayed however the individual post view (single.php) should show the comments.

    This is a feature request I’ll pass onto Kriesi to look into.

    James

    in reply to: Images #47279

    Hey,

    I’m not sure why your images aren’t loading but the URL for images doesn’t load an image (e.g. http://www.danglersden.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/5-180×180.jpg)

    There are only a few possibilities:

    1.) The image doesn’t exist. If you definately uploaded the image and can preview it correctly this isn’t the problem.

    2.) A plugin / script (bear in mind that scripts forced on you by your host can interfere) is stopping images loading. Please try disabling any / all plugins.

    3.) Your .htaccess is blocking access to the images. I note that the image URL I posted above does not have a trailing slash but when you load the image, the URL is redirectedand a trailing slash is added.

    James

    in reply to: Visual Editor Tab not working #46982

    in reply to: Excerpt for pages not present! #47178

    Hey,

    Pages don’t have excerpts, they’re not designed to be included in a list of posts or only to display partial content. They’re designed to be static and display only the full text when you browse to that page.
