    Agree! Thank you guys!

    This reply has been marked as private.

    I also was wondering if there isn’t an easy fix, would just adding some transparent space to the logo image work? (blank space to the left of the image … such as 10 transparent pixels to the actual logo image.) Or adding a margin or padding to the left of the image work?
    I guess it’s a workaround, but i’m sure there is a better way?
    ——————–
    Oh! I just re-read this thread, and I realized I missed one step of your instructions… After the first block of code, you say to adjust the logo size to 139 px, or something like that. I will try that step, and see if it works, however it seems like it would be defeating the purpose: if the initial goal was to enlarge the image! But I’ll give it a go… And report back…
    ———————
    Nope. It did not work, but my logo is 400x200px. Does it matter what size setting you choose, while in the media browser? (Small, medium or full size?)
    Thanks,
    Mimi

    I applied this fix as well, and the logo is displaying a little off to the left. I’m using the “small blog demo” setup, with no sidebars. Header set to “Logo Center, menu below.” and custom pixel value option and height set to 200px. Before the code, the logo was centered, and it looked perfect on full size screen. But the logo resized so small on the iPad, that it was almost unreadable. It’s a website that probably won’t be viewed much on a cell phone, but mostly on Tablets and Desktop computers. So I felt a 400 x 200 px logo would not mess up the appearance on a tablet. (image setting in media window, I clicked “full size” dimensions).

    Checked it on an iPad and desktop, and after adding those 2 bits of code above, it did enlarge the logo to full 400 x 200px, but it moved it to the left a bit. The size looks great on both computer and iPad.
    When you gave those 2 bits of code, do we place those in the GENERAL STYLING: Quick CSS … and just paste those 2 bits of code, one right after the other? Or the second code is replacing something in your first suggestion?

    (BTW, I’m posting this from an account that I registered with other Kriesi purchases. I just bought Enfold this week, but registered another support login for that. I never got a confirmation email, so I’m logging in with this one).

    in reply to: portfolio item image way too big #86521

    Hi Nick and nvd80 … I scanned this forum a little more and found Nick’s advice on a similiar topic, from a few days ago. The solution is perfect! It looks wonderful!

    Here is where I found it: Controlling Portfolio Single Entries question:

    http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/controlling-portfolio-single-entries

    I followed his instructions to a “T” including updating to the latest version of the theme, then editing just 3 files … and ..voila! … the problem I’ve been trying to solve for months is resolved once and for all (I hope!).

    Now each single portfolio page no longer shows a huge image at the top of the page. Just a small 1/3 sized image or slideshow displays. If I click on it, THEN a larger version pops open in another window. Ahhh! Now that’s how it should be!

    Thank you so much, Nick, for your carefully laid out instructions. You rock! I’m sure many people will appreciate the time you took for that helpful reply. I hope there is a way to make that response a FAQ or sticky or something.

    in reply to: portfolio item image way too big #86520

    Thank you for your reply. I will take another shot at this and report back. My apology to nvd80… I’m sorry I hijacked your thread! I would also like to know the answer to your question (above):

    Quote:

    Is there option not to show the picture as the header at the portfolio page? I would just like the thumbnail. Otherwise, can the image be at the sidebar inline with its title below?

    If anyone can tell us what file to modify that will remove the large picture altogether; that would be an acceptable solution.

    in reply to: portfolio item image way too big #86518

    Something just hit me: This is probably the first responsive theme I’ve used. Is the fact that it’s responsive, and is designed to “fill the screen” no matter how big or how small … is that why we don’t have control over the size?

    in reply to: portfolio item image way too big #86517

    I’ve been trying for 6 months to get rid of the HUMONGOUS images on each of my portfolio entries. Every month or so, I scan forum for a solution, and make another failed attempt to resize the gigantic images in the Propulsion Theme portfolio. Nothing works, including this simple image size plugin. No matter what I do, or what file I edit, settings I change or plugin I install .. the portfolio image fills my entire 27″ monitor screen and I have to scroll down to even get past the bottom of the image.

    It’s ridiculous the hoops people (buyers) are jumping through to find a solution. But it doesn’t seem like the author has any interest in working on a fix. I may abandon Propulsion, as much as I love the theme. But I sure won’t purchase another Kriesi theme to replace it. I don’t have the time or patience for another headache like this one. Like others, I don’t have this problem with any other wordpress theme I work on. The problem is with the theme.

    in reply to: Blog Featured Image #60408

    I’m having the same problem. I assumed that the featured image, single image or any image added to the portfolio (it seems to me) has to be added as part of a “slideshow” if you want a thumbnail to show up in a gallery, widget or any sort of index. It’s the only way to add a featured image (that I can tell).

    It appears that you have to choose one of the 3 slide options, all of which want to stretch the image the full width of page/content space. So even if the real image is only 400 px wide, it’s going to stretch the whole image to fill up slider space. Is that right? If you click on the slide show image, it will open the pop-up that shows the actual sized image. Is there no way just to show the real image in the first place and skip the “slideshow” on the portfolio post?

    The default is 930 pixels wide? We have to change that in functions.php? That’s really odd. Who wants a giant slider on every portfolio post? This can’t be right.

    Maybe it was fixed on an update that I don’t know about.

    in reply to: My Cubit Theme as a Mobile Page #53084

    Just thought I should clarify:

    1. The TF Product Promo Mobile Theme is a 5 page HTML/CSS Template sized for 320 width display. It has a little mini nivo slider that makes the page slightly reminiscent of several Kreisi themes.

    That’s why I think it’s worth mentioning here; to people getting frustrated with word press mobile themes they are trying to make work.

    IT’S NOT A WORD PRESS THEME. It’s just a 5 page site layout , with a couple of cool mini-sized javacript features.

    2. The “Mobile Domain” plugin is a wordpress plugin. It is completely independent of the TF item above. This plugin puts some code in the header of your wp pages, to detect if the viewer is mobile user. If so, it redirects them to the subdomain that you have specified in the plugin.

    It’s a wordpress plugin, but not a wordpress theme. In fact, it WON’T redirect to wordpress mobile theme! It will only point to a specific directory in your domain such as:

    m.domain.com

    domain.com/mobile/

    domain.com/m/

    where you have set up pages custom formatted for mobile browsers.

    Disclaimer: YES, I know there may be issues with Google about redirects and duplicate content. I plan to look into that. And I know there are ways you can clear it up in Google’s Webmaster tools etc. to demonstrate that you are not playing seo games.

    I hope that makes sense!

    in reply to: WPTouch / iPhone, mobile support #45547

    I thought I could offer a little insight on this topic. I hope it helps someone, as I’ve noticed several threads where people are having problems with mobile display and wpTouch in particular. I have a site developed in Cubit Theme, and probably migrating over into Broadscope (not sure, it’s hard to let go of a design when it’s working and looks good). Cubit looked pretty darn good on an iPhone, but I felt it needed to be pared down for mobile users.

    I originally installed wpTouch and quickly upgraded to wpTouch Pro for more control over the theme design. I was very disappointed and frustrated. It never entered my mind, to expect the desktop theme to be responsible for the mobile plugin’s output . No matter how much I troubleshooting I did, my wpTouch site remained a sloppy mess.

    This week, I decided it was WAY more information than anyone would want to look at on their cell phone anyway. They don’t need my entire website on their cellphone, just a few key features. I opted for a quick fix, which I’m so satisified with, that I may just leave it this way permanently. I know it is not at all cutting edge, it doesn’t resize itself to every possible screen size, but it will ALWAYS display, just as I want it to. For now, that’s good enough for me. It’s better than the alternative!

    I’m going to paste in something I wrote to the author of this simple mobile page design (on theme forest). Not sure.. am I allowed to post the link to the TF item? Is it ok?

    http://themeforest.net/item/product-promo-mobile-theme/548097

    It’s very simple, and my cubit slider looks really cute in this little mini version! It was quick and easy to make it make match my cubit website.


    Eventually I will probably alter the layout, or switch to a more flexible page width in the future, but hey for six bucks, this was a great bargain that was a quick solution for me. It works!


    I had already spent $39 on a plugin call wpTouch Pro, which is a mobile theme that duplicates the entire site into a mobile version. For all the hype around this plugin, it’s really a tremendous pain and seems to have many unresolved conflicts. It was way more than I needed for the mobile site. I purchased this item because it offered a few concise pages of information, easily controlled with html … and looked so much better doing it.

    When I went to switch mobile solutions, I discovered that most all other wp plugins were more complicated than I needed. Most want the user to choose an alternate wp plugin, and won’t let us simply specify a sub-folder or non-wordpress page. Dreamweaver CS5 has a built-in feature to add a media query script. But it’s complicated and intimidating. I didn’t want to mess up my site.

    I finally took a chance and added a simple plugin called “Mobile Domain.” (from within the wp-admin plugins page)

    Here’s how it works:

    http://www.yusuf.asia/2011/07/how-to-create-mobile-subdomain/

    I may try adding some additional code to get the plugin’s mobile/desktop switcher feature to work with your little html page layout, by doing the following….(because the pages are just html/php, not wordpress pages … you need to get the plugin to understand where the footer is)…

    desktop-view link in the mobile version?

    if you want to use it, add wp_footer(); function into your footer.php before the end of body tag.


    Thanks for the reply. I think the problems I encountering are because I had a few pages and posts set up before I imported the dummy stuff.

    I’m going to make a new post on this. Because I think other people would like to know the answer to the question I have about importing dummy stuff to a non-fresh install.

    I’m also having many frustrating problems with Broadscope, one of which is the page layout shortcodes. I don’t recall seeing any mention of making sure to enter the shortcodes in the HTML editor in the documentation. That would have been very nice to know.

    Is there a “magic wand” button available, when you are in the Html editor? It’s not available on my broadscope/wordpress site.

    Can you elaborate on what you mean “include a space between shortcodes.” ? Do you mean between the ending tag of one and the beginning tag of another? I read somewhere, while trying to troubleshoot my sloppy page, that I was supposed to put each shortcode on an entirely separate line. I’m not sure if that meant each tag gets its own line — then the content on another separate line — then closing tag on a separate line? Or the both tags and content altogether and then an empty line and then the next set of short codes?

    in reply to: Footer going Haywire in IE #51134

    I came to this same conclusion, after I posted my orig message. That I should download a fresh copy of the theme. And compare it to what I’m working with. I looked for a “delete post option” , but didn’t see one here.

    I just discovered Aptana Studio has a feature called “Quick Dif” which might be helpful. “Quick Diff feature highlights the line numbers for all lines of code that have had changes made since your last save, which should help you track your changes as you code.”

    Sorry to bother you. I thought it might have been something many people were experiencing, all right now.

    in reply to: Footer going Haywire in IE #51132

    Also: regarding the footer… There was a post in the Cubit theme where someone was asking how to make changes to the footer – the reply gave suggested (I think) css modifications. Which I followed along with and applied to my site. Then, later down the thread, the OP, said “Oh sorry, I posted in the wrong section, I’m not using Cubit I’m using theme X.

    I didn’t think the modifications had any effect at all on my site, I just left it as is. Now I’m wondering if that is what is causing this IE behavior. But I can’t find the thread … in order to backtrack!

    And idea what that post was?

    in reply to: Cubit Theme and Shortcodes & Footer Modification #50974

    Hmm. I’m considering it. I’ve never considered Velvet because the navigation is so dang boring. It’s basically just text links. Are there any styling options built in for the menu?

    Other than that, it looks beautiful. It really helps a lot to have the differences in the Kriesi themes laid out the way you have above. He should add something like that to the FAQs or General question section. (maybe it’s already there.)

    in reply to: Cubit Theme and Shortcodes & Footer Modification #50972

    Thank you for your reply. I will give this a try. I realize it’s not your job to teach Javascript to every person who buys a kriesi template; so I really do appreciate the patience the support team extends on this forum.

    Eventually, I think I will migrate the site into a more recently released template. The beauty of this theme is it’s simplicity. It’s not easy to “junk it up” and that just might be a good thing, or it would lose it’s aesthetic appeal.

    If I do move to a newer template, do you think I will find myself back in this position if I go with Clean Cut, Avisio or Habitat? (They just seem closest in style to Cubit. Easier to make it appear as the same design… I’m guessing.) I just don’t want to bump my head on the ceiling, so to speak, in 6 months.

    Thanks for the help.

    in reply to: Customizing Colors for Cubit Menu / Navigation #49555

    I think this is what I need. Thank you very much!

    in reply to: Customizing Colors for Cubit Menu / Navigation #49553

    I forgot to mention, that I left the borders alone … as far as the color of left and right. The only thing I’ve been trying to alter is the background color of the menu on HOVER, whether that is top level or sub-nav. I also ended up changing the text color on hover, so it show up against a new bg color. And, then, because it looked strange if I didn’t do so, also changed the bg color of current active items.

    No matter what I change, nothing seems to have any effect on the bg color ot the top nav tab. As a result, I end up with my text disappearing on mouseover, in the top level navigation. Which doesn’t make for a very useful navigation bar!

    in reply to: Customizing Colors for Cubit Menu / Navigation #49552

    Wrestled with this all day yesterday, and I’m still not getting it. Since the template is intended for the user to customize it themselves, shouldn’t the author be willing to provide clear instructions on how to do this? I spent a good deal of time online, yesterday, trying to figure out what I was missing; why I wasn’t able to “crack the code” to this silly thing. I read and watched a tutorial on Envato about creating a lavalamp navigation menu, so I could understand the code I was looking at. After several hours, I was finally able to change the background colors in the sub-nav, on hover.

    But the technique has no effect on the top level navigation, because (it appears) the lava.png image either overides it or covers it up. So, I went back into the psd for the lava image, to try to make sense of the layers. See what or where I could add a background color. Of course, there is no helpful notation for the user in that file either. All the labels are characteristically cryptic, just in case anyone is trying unravel the secret code.

    What the heck? What is the big secret? You’ve got hundreds of people people who have purchased this template, in order to begin customizing it for their needs. Why make it so dang difficult to do so? This task should have taken me 20 minutes or less. But I’m still trying to decipher the code days later.

    I’ve tried adding a colored background layer to the lava image, but what I don’t understand now … is what layers to hide before I save it, so that the color can appear behind the rounded tab. Do I then just save it as lava.png and upload to my images1 folder? I really, REALLY hope I can get a straight forward answer to this question.

    It is not clear to me what the code is fetching for the right curve of the tab, and what image it’s fetching for the left. Is it accessing two different layers of the same png file? Is that even possible?

    in reply to: Customizing Colors for Cubit Menu / Navigation #49550

    Sorry, for the delay. Went on vacation before I could figure this out. I’m delving back into it today and hopefully it will make sense to me. Thanks for the assistance.

    in reply to: Customizing Colors for Cubit Menu / Navigation #49548

    Thanks for your reply.

    This will change the color of the text, correct? But to change the background of the navigation on mouseover .. will it be a code for a background: color# I will change? or I need to replace a background image or both?
