  • Ismael,

    We would not be interested in changing to the Enfold theme, but would it’s Lightbox be able to be used with the Angular theme?

    Thanks,

    Ismael,

    Thanks for the tip.

    Since Google is now giving ‘preference’ to HTTPS sites, it might behoove y’all to make the Lightbox work properly.

    Ismael,

    It just seems that when we have an ‘inline’ link to a video, it tries to play it in the Lightbox. Example:

    (Click on “View Demo Reel”)
    [ This used to work fine before making the site SSL].

    Is there another way to do this?

    Ismael,

    When we changed the embed URL to “https://….” it shows up and plays in the post (and on the Ajaxed pages).

    But, even when we changed the link BELOW the video (so it will play in “Lightbox”) it does not play:
    https://visualimpactsystems.com/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -repair-video-walbro/
    [ It works fine on our NON-SSL “staging” site ]

    Any ideas?

    Basillis,

    Is there some way you can get this to Kriesi to look at? (WPEngine informs us that we CANNOT ‘regress’ back to WP 4.5.2, so none of our videos on the site can be viewed).

    Thanks,

    Basillis,

    We are running Angular 4.0 and the latest-greatest WP 4.5.3 (and 4.5.3 is what ‘broke’ it). [ WPEngine automatically upgrades to the latest version ].

    Here’s a link to our “staging” site, which is exactly like our ‘live’ site, except it is still running WP 4.5.2—and all the videos work fine:

    VIDEO EXAMPLES:

    VIDEO PRODUCTION

    BLOG POSTS:
    http://visualimpact.staging.wpengine.com/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -video-author-nozer-buchia/
    http://visualimpact.staging.wpengine.com/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -repair-video-walbro/

    So, evidently there’s something in WP 4.5.3 that is affecting video embeds.

    Rikard,

    Thank you for the quick response.

    I didn’t mention this but we cannot use any “cache” plugin since we being hosted by “WPEngine”, and they have their own ‘built in’. We will ask them about using the minify and compression plugins.

    The one we thought we would be able to do right away was the “eliminate render-blocking of Javascript and CSS (that’s why I included our CSS file). Is there anything we can do about this?

    Thanks,

    Yigit,

    Will this work the same way for the Angular theme?

    in reply to: Angular – Is Version 2.3 Required for WordPress 4.4? #572942

    Rikard,

    I’m sure you are correct that it is always ‘best’ to run the latest versions. We are just ‘graphic designers’ and are not familiar of how to create a “child theme”—maybe that might be something to investigate in the future.

    Because our hoster will probably ‘force’ us to upgrade soon, we just wanted to know from Kriesi whether or not v2.3 is “absolutely” necessary for WP 4.4

    Thanks,

    Kriesi/All,

    That DID IT! We’ve been able to add up to 6 more items (what we needed right now) to a few portfolios than the previous max of 48. [ FYI: WPEngine said that their maximum is 2000 ].

    We VERY MUCH appreciate all the efforts everyone put into this!

    ISSUE CLOSED.

    Kriesi,

    We did do this, and it did allow us to add 3 more images, but it seem to slow the interactivity down, and it gave us a “WordPress Failure Notice” (Timeout) after updating the page to save the additional images to the portfolio (this has never happened before, even when we’ve been editing for hours).

    This is the .htaccess:

    php_value max_input_vars 5000

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    ==========

    FYI: We use “WPEngine” for our hosting (purported to be one of the fastest WordPress hosting platforms in the world – http://wpengine.com/ (hosted on WPengine) ).

    Do you think that they don’t ‘like’ the increase, or maybe it should be another value or done a different way by them?

    Mark

    Elliott,

    We deleted the ‘old’ Angular folder and then copied a ‘fresh’ copy of Angular 2.0 into the themes folder. Then we tried to add the 49th image to the “Banner Stand Graphics” portfolio. The check mark appeared to tell me it was added (and I could see that it was added in the background behind the add image ‘dialog box’), but when I updated (saved) the page, it ‘discarded’ the addition, and would only show 48 images.

    Hmmmm…

    All,

    Thank you for all your efforts on this, but we just noticed that both the “portfolio-sort…” and “dynamic_element…” code messes up the “gallery slideshow” when the user clicks on either the “previous” or “next” button (it ‘stacks’ them separately below each other, rather than just ‘replacing’ the current one with the new one).

    I guess we will just have to ‘deal with it’ that it doesn’t render the grid line properly all the time.

    We really appreciate all your efforts!

    ISSUE CLOSED.

    Ismael,

    The above code is in there, but it is at the end of the file. Should I move it?

    Ismael,

    No, it does not happen if you don’t resize the browser window. But, someone like me has multiple windows/tabs open with file windows open too, and I have to resize the browser window to see my files.

    It does not happen on phones/pads since they only rotate and this does not happen when it ‘loads up’ originally (only when you resize).

    Since we design web sites for clients, we does wanted our site to be an ‘example’ of our work—and wanted it not to have any ‘issues’.

    Moderators,

    Any thoughts on how to put more than 48 images into a portfolio?

    Thanks for your efforts,
    Mark Besh

    in reply to: Angular Portfolio Grid Line Disappears #393249

    Ismael,

    Looks like it fixed both Chrome and Firefox on both PC and Mac…and almost IE.

    [ When you resize the IE browser window, in grid line disappears, but re-appears when you resize it a little more. But, it does disappear more so when you resize the browser window to make it resize the grid images smaller to 716 pixels wide instead of the 930 pixels wide ‘default’ ].

    Mark

    in reply to: Angular Portfolio Grid Line Disappears #391653

    Ismael,

    It seems to disappearing less of the time now, but it still goes away (especially when you resize the browser window only horizontally just a very small amount, and it seems to happen more so on the PC than on the Mac).

    Ismael,

    That did solve the disappearing of the vertical grid line, but really messed up the mobile. It ‘forced’ all 4 of the first ‘line’ of portfolio items to be next to each other (really small), rather than showing them ‘on top’ of each other (with each item being the full width of the screen). [ This also happened in a browser when it was resized to a very small width ].

    Hmmm.

    Mark

    Ismael,

    Yes, we can add images to portfolios that have less than 48 images. (Added a few to “Podium Graphics”).
    http://visualimpactsystems.com/trade-show-graphics-examples/

    Just to test this, we had a portfolio with 46 images in it (“Pop-up graphics”), and added the 47th successfully, and added the 48th successfully, but the 49th could not be added.

    [ FYI: “Banner Stand Graphics” is the other one with 48 images ].

    Andy,

    Deactivated all of them/cleared all the caches, restarted the computer—did not work.

    FYI: This worked fine, with all the plugins we have now (did not add/remove any), when we had Angular 1.5 (a few weeks ago before we updated to 2.0).

    Mark

    Yigit,

    Hmmm. Cleared the cache, quit the programs, restarted the computers (viewing on both PC and Mac), and put your code at the top of the custom.css file. Still disappearing here. Does it disappear for you, too?

    FYI: Custom.css file:

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

    .container {
    width: 932px !important;
    }

    font-size: 14px;
    }

    #top .template-dynamic .callout {
    padding: 4px 0 0px;
    }

    #top .template-dynamic .callout p {
    padding-bottom: 0;
    }

    #top .mobileMenu {
    display: none !important;
    }

    #top h1.ajax-portfolio-title {
    font-size: 2.3em;

    Ismael,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Put your code at both the top and bottom of the custom.css file and it did not work (deleted cache/history and quit browsers a few times). Even made the container number “962”, and it still didn’t work. Any other ideas?

    Yigit,

    We upgraded to Angular 2.0 and increased the allocated memory to 128M, and we still cannot add more than 48 images to this one portfolio.

    Any ideas?

    Mark Besh
    Visual Impact Systems

    Yigit,

    If possible, we would rather not upgrade right now—we have changed A LOT of code, and just don’t have the time right now to do it all.

    Is it possible to change a ‘bit’ of code to allow us to have more than 48 items in a single portfolio entry?

    Thanks,
    Mark Besh

    Yigit,

    FYI: Works fine now—after we replaced the following:
    – “prettyPhoto” folder
    – “mediaelement” folder
    – “aviapoly.js” file
    – “jquery.js” file

    [ DID NOT replace the “avia.js” ]

    Thanks!
    Mark Besh
    Visual Impact Systems

    Yigit,

    At least for right now, would it be possible to just update the prettyPhoto files? (We have done extensive ‘customization’ of many of the Angular PHP files, and would like to do the update of everything over the holidays).

    If so, which files/folders should we replace?

    Thanks,
