    in reply to: Iconbox Retina Image Replacement #109134

    Hi Nick,

    Thank you for your patience with me! :)

    This is actually the smoothie page that I’m referring to – not on the homepage – :

    The icons are coded differently than the home page where I didn’t use the iconbox shortcodes.

    The icons on this page are shortcodes and the span class I see in Google Chrome is “iconbox_icon”, not “smoothie”.

    [iconbox title="Fruits:" icon="fruits.png"]

    <li>1 teaspoon lemon zest, grated</li>
    <li>3 cups strawberries</li>

    Just to clarify, are you saying I should replace this shortcode (as well as the other shortcodes) [iconbox title=”Fruits:” icon=”fruits.png”] on each of my 125 pages with this?

    <span class="smoothie"></span>

    Thanks for your patience!!

    Awesome! Thanks for your help.

    This solution worked for me in IE10 (however most people using IE are still in IE9). It is still much better than not having it in any IE browser, and hopefully people will upgrade soon.

    Thank you, again, Nick!

    You’re the best.

    Thank you, Dude!

    He wrote back that he decided not to provide support via email, except if it is paid.

    He also said: “iconbox” seems to be a shortcode of your theme. Not sure if the images (icons) are from you, but if they aren’t there are probably shipped with the theme and if they don’t provide bigger version, well, you will have to use new ones, and probably to modify your theme code a bit.

    To which I wrote that I understood not providing unpaid support, as his plugin was free, and I noted that I designed my shortcode iconbox icons and they’re in vector format.

    He replied that if they are in vector formats, I can use SVG versions of them for the website and it will work automatically in Retina.

    If they are part of the theme, we shouldn’t have them in the Media, they should actually be “outside” WordPress, with the @2x generated manually by you. Then in the CSS (device-pixel-ratio: 2), you specify the @2x files. He also said his plugin should cover the posts and all, not the images related to the themes. The themes should handle Retina themselves (since they often provides the icons and main images).

    I’ve never added SVG files to CSS although I have added @2x in media queries so I have to figure this next step out.

    Thank you so much, Nick!

    This helps, and it’s a bit embarrassing but I have to learn this and need clarification, please.

    I have placed the jquery.placeholder.min.js file in my js folder. I haven’t added a script to WP prior to this – only on hand-coded XHTML sites like my portfolio ( – not PHP like WP. (If it wasn’t PHP – I’d put <script type=”text/javascript” src=”js/jquery.placeholder.min.js”></script> in the header. )

    Would I place it in functions.php with the other .js files, like this?



    function avia_frontend_js()


    wp_register_script( ‘avia-default’, AVIA_BASE_URL.’js/avia.js’, array(‘jquery’,’avia-html5-video’), 1, false );

    wp_register_script( ‘avia-prettyPhoto’, AVIA_BASE_URL.’js/prettyPhoto/js/jquery.prettyPhoto.js’, ‘jquery’, “3.0.1”, true);

    wp_register_script( ‘avia-default’, AVIA_BASE_URL.’js/jquery.placeholder.min.js’, array(‘jquery’, 1, false or true? );

    wp_register_script( ‘avia-html5-video’, AVIA_BASE_URL.’js/projekktor/projekktor.min.js’, ‘jquery’, “1”, true);

    wp_register_script( ‘adaptavia-slider’, AVIA_BASE_URL.’js/adaptavia.js’, ‘jquery’, “1.0.0”, true);



    Or would it be something like this in functions.php?


    function my_scripts_method() {



    get_template_directory_uri() . ‘/js/jquery.placeholder.min.js’,




    add_action(‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘my_scripts_method’);


    Thanks for your clarification and time!!

    Thanks for helping, Nick! I tried your suggestion and to no avail. Then realized the .smoothie is actually coded in HTML as a class of the H6 tag, not an iconbox shortcode.

    I had setup WP Retina 2x when you suggested it previously and it is a wonderful plugin but doesn’t show my shortcodes in the dashboard. I have emailed the creator, Jordy Meow to see if he can advise a solution or a reason as to why I don’t see the images in the WP Retina 2x dashboard.

    I will update you as soon as I hear from him.

    Thanks so much for always kindly helping me!

    in reply to: Replacing logo with Retina Logo #107834

    Thanks Nick,

    With the Propulsion theme, if I remove my image from the Theme Options, the Propulsion image is the default logo, and displays with my logo as well.

    After installing WP Retina2X, I was able to remove media queries completely for the logo. All I needed to do was rename the Propulsion logo as p-logo.png and drop in my original size image in named logo.png, as well as a high res version as (Email address hidden if logged out) . The high res version loads about 3 seconds after the original version on the iPhone.

    Thank you so much for all of your help and kindness!!



    in reply to: Replacing logo with Retina Logo #107832


    This is a great article and resource you have given me. I will conquer this! I appreciate your help.

    Yes, I hard-coded the logo in the Theme Options inside WordPress. I wonder if I should replace it with the high-res one, and just change the background size via CSS in my mobile media query instead of swapping it out. I think that would work.

    I will try this and also reinstall the plugin and I will update you soon.

    Thank you so kindly, Nick!

    in reply to: Replacing logo with Retina Logo #107830

    Thanks Nick,

    I’ve updated my CSS and checked my Firefox app on my iPhone, and they look the same. I’ve read articles on using both types of moz, one from even says “The super weird min–moz-device-pixel-ratio is probably a bug, might wanna put in -moz-min-device-pixel-ratio also in case they fix it but leave it prefixed”. In any event, I have changed mine to your suggestion – thank you so much, although my icons are appearing the same.

    Regarding the image replacement for the logo, I have it in my media query as such:


    only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2),

    only screen and ( min–moz-device-pixel-ratio: 2),

    only screen and ( -o-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2/1),

    only screen and ( min-device-pixel-ratio: 2),

    only screen and ( min-resolution: 192dpi),

    only screen and ( min-resolution: 2dppx) {

    h1.logo a { background: url(“/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/TFC (Email address hidden if logged out) “) no-repeat top left; background-size: 60%; }


    The image shows up and looks great, except it’s peeking out from behind my original logo. I can’t display:none on the original logo because they have the same selector. I’m not sure why the original logo isn’t disappearing. I have saved my CSS so you should be able to see it on my home page

    This is a very interesting dilemma.

    Thank you for your help!!

    in reply to: Replacing logo with Retina Logo #107828

    Thanks Nick,

    I’m just using my own layout.css document with these media queries, which are successful with all my other images, so I’m not sure why the logo isn’t updating:

    @media only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2),

    only screen and (min–moz-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2),

    only screen and (-o-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2/1),

    only screen and (min-device-pixel-ratio: 2),

    only screen and (min-resolution: 2dppx) {


    I had the Retina2x plugin but it wasn’t working, so I just created my own media queries and uploaded (Email address hidden if logged out) for all my images and icon and coded it out with the above media query, and everything except the logo worked. Retina2x documentation states “The plugin can transform the images that go through the WordPress API and the ‘Image Sizes’ properly. Themes often uses a one-time customized size for the logo, and for that reason the image wouldn’t be taken care of by the plugin. The easiest way to go around this is to create the Retina image by yourself. For example, if you are logo is 200×100 and named ‘logo.png’, upload a 400×200 version of that logo named (Email address hidden if logged out) ‘ next to the other one. It should them work immediately.” I did that, but it still didn’t replace it, so I had no need for the plugin and deactivated and deleted it.

    So with my own code, my images are fine and retina images are replacing, but the logo isn’t.

    Sometimes the solutions are so easy that I only think of the harder way to solve the problem! Thank you so much. It worked perfectly.

    in reply to: Portfolio categories not showing #106687

    Thank you for your help.

    I tried this, and I have my active and focus and hovers styled but they are still invisible. Can I create an admin name and password and email you somehow, please?

    in reply to: #js_sort_items div.sort_by_cat a not showing up #106677

    I tried this, and I see it as a rule in Firebug but they are still invisible. Can I email you a username and password?

    in reply to: Portfolio categories not showing #106685

    Sorry – I’m not sure if this got placed under Propulsion, but I think I may have placed it in the parent forum on accident. I apologize. (I am using the Propulsion theme) I just created a user name and password – where can I email the credentials?

    Thank you so much!

    in reply to: Updating theme #105530

    Just doubled my RAM, and it’s working fine now. Thank you!

    in reply to: Updating theme #105528

    Thank you, it seems jumpy to me, and sometimes displays a “ghost” menu when I’ve already hovered off of it. I think it’s a memory issue, and I’m looking into it. Thank you everyone for all your help.

    in reply to: Updating theme #105526

    Yes. I was seeing it for about an hour and a half, but it’s stopped now. I haven’t done anything… so I’m not sure what happened. It was glitching in both FF and Safari.

    in reply to: Updating theme #105524

    Thanks Devin.

    Yeah, I felt like a robber and in no way am I! I unzipped it last night and uploaded the child folder to WP and configured it today so all is working now.

    My site has a page for each herb, which uses a template from the Template Builder. So for example, I have Burdock, Dandelion, Red Clover, Lemon, Ginger, etc. I currently have around 90 of these, and each has their own portfolio where their respective category is tagged so that their own page shows a portfolio with their own ingredient in the recipes. I have about 15 more that I need to do but it seems from reading your response, that it has reached it’s limit. Is this correct?

    Is there any way to modify on the backend and increase the number limit? Or does this mean I need to contact my server and upgrade something (not sure). I’m really hoping there is a work-around, as this is vital to my company.

    Thanks for all your help.

    One more thing – when I switched to the legit theme, my menu is glitchy and flickering. I’m not sure what would cause this, since I think I have the most up-to-date version (1.8) now. Do you mind taking a look at my site, please?

    Thank you sincerely,


    in reply to: Updating theme #105522

    I tried to install the paid theme just now and it failed because it contains no styles.css file. I’m not sure if I am going about all of this the right way. Thanks for your help.
