November 25, 2013 at 9:02 pm in reply to: Enfold – How do you apply a "Layout element color section" to a post? #193151
Thanks for the response, that s what I thought.
So I made a new layout for certain posts, then I rendered a page with the parallax effect, then copied the code an inserted it in the new layout I made. This requires a little work and I could describe it more in details if someone needs it but now I have a parallax effect for some of the posts I want that use that custom look.
I can now make a handful of looks where there is a large parallax background on the top of some of the posts. When a post is about “Restaurants” for example, I pick the layout that has the parallax effect with a large image of the inside of a restaurant. When I have a post about a movie theater I pick the layout for posts with a Large theater background image…maybe an idea to incorporate in a future version as custom posts layout is really helpful
Having more control of the Featured Image would be great
At the moment you can not set a particular size for the Featured image so that on a post with fullwidth you are stuck with a giant image instead of being able to select one that could be less tall. The feature image works very well for thumbnails on other pages referencing the article/post but if lets say you want the featured image at the top of a fullwidth post to be a particular height for example you must remove the featured image and add an image manually and it will be below the meta infos meaning you have to modify the js to make ALL images on fullwidth to be a certain size.
The best solution would be a featured image for thumbnails references on other page and a customizable featured image on the post/page itself so one could decide what should be the width and height or have the same options to pick the options from 80×80 to fullsize.
At the moment the only solution I found was to remove the giant size image at the top of the fullwidth layout and reference a custom field that points to the image to be picked up. That gives way more control of what the size of the featured image should be for each post/page and it also leaves the Featured image to still be used on other pages.
I hope this makes sense :)November 22, 2013 at 4:04 am in reply to: Enfold – How would you add a shortcode or content element to a tab? #191710
I see…so you would have to build the whole page via the default interface to be able to add elements within a tab.
Not sure I agree that finding a host close to you is important as with all things being equal the time to access your site should be relatively the same from Australia to Tokyo or Paris.
What is more important is the tech support you get and how quick can you get it. We use Hostway. I think they are based in Chicago and in Texas and we have dedicated servers so we get quick and excellent support. To me its the quality of the tech support that matters when your site becomes the target of a dos attack or a hack…how quick the techs are able to help you and work on your issue. Being able to pick up the phone and talk to someone in less than a minute and knowing that the person is a unix/php/mysql admin really helps with peace of mind.
With dedicated servers you know you will get easy and quick service usually because your machine and database are not shared. With ANY service provider where you will be on a shared server then you take the risk that your site could go down or slow to a crawl due to another site creating infinite loops or database errors or simply using too many resources.
If you are serious about hosting you need to find a host that provides a good dedicated hosting for a low fee and be sure you can get in touch with tech support 24hrs a day. Also make sure they offer daily backups. Some companies don t offer direct backups of mysql so ask them to create a nightly cron job that dumps the database in a folder above your www root so nobody can access it besides via ftp and back those up yourself once a week. Having a local backup of the mysql database can save you an awful lot of time when doing a restore.
My 2 cents
EDIT: Wpengine seems to be good and serious (an really cheap) but I doubt you get a dedicated server. I suspect you have a cloud site meaning you are still suceptible to other sites taking your down as you share resources. The good thing with them is that they focus on WP hosting so they should be expert at database recovery and hosting for WP sites
Just what I needed. I didin t know about the ‘custom’ option, this worked like a charm.
I would strongly recommend adding your code as an example on this page http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold/shortcodes/buttons/ to let people know…unless I missed it in the docs.
Sorry…did not work. The theme is rewriting on top of the custom css for this one.
I ll try to install on an external site but that did not work, the sidebar still picks the theme font color and overides the button css
Thank you for the response but that is not what I wanted
By mobile version I mean that the phone version gives a rather annoying long menu list of all the menu options.
Lets say I have 4 main menus and each have 10 sub menus. On the homepage only 4 menus shows unless you mouseover.
On mobile/ipad the menus are replaced with an icon for menu that when you click it gives you the very long list of lets say those 40 options.
What I want is for mobile and ipads to see the exact same menus as browsers and not being given a leaner site.
I am fine with the content re arranging itself depending on the screen size but the menu system takes way too much space and is too long in mobile. That s what i want to disable…the reformating of the mobile menus.
Thanks in advance
As I mentioned this is an internal site so no links and that is why I gave the procedure to reproduce.
I noticed that the font color for the buttons in the sidebar is taken from the Main content Font Color. Change the default font color to red in the Main Content Style tab and the button default color is now red.
Does this help?
If the button is in a page then it seems the button text color takes over, if the button is in the sidebar then the site Main Content Font Color is used instead
I tested it both with the shortcode version and the html output version and both give the same results
[av_button color='#FFFFFF' label='Click me' link='manually,http://www.google' link_target='' color='blue' custom_bg='#444444' custom_font='#ffffff' size='medium' position='center' icon_select='yes' icon='ue80c' font='entypo-fontello'] <div class="avia-button-wrap avia-button-center avia-builder-el-0 avia-builder-el-no-sibling "> <a class="avia-button avia-icon_select-yes avia-color-blue avia-size-medium avia-position-center " href="http://www.google"> <span class="avia_button_icon" data-av_iconfont="entypo-fontello" data-av_icon="" aria-hidden="true"></span> <span class="avia_iconbox_title">Click me</span> </a> </div>
- This reply was modified 1 month ago by Monsoon.
- I will add my request for being able to use Masonry in a fixed width…not sure why the only option was fullwidth
- It would be nice to have as an option the same header option as on this site ie social icons right of menus
- Customization of Feature Image as in previous themes like Corona where the Featured Image could be linked, not linked, custom url’ed and text captioned
- in theme option to have a fixed sidebar when scrolling down to avoid wasting a lot of white space on long posts/pages
- Accordion slider from corona option. This is enormously helpfull for websites that run many events as a simple way to show what s coming
Can you explain how they are generated at the theme level or where they are located?
If the fonts are dynamically generated from code from Fontello, how do you get a jpg/png?
I was trying to add a youtube icon to the social icons but besides making a jpg/png myself I do not see any other means to add a fontello icon from either a font or code…
EDIT: you seem to be limited to only the social icons that come with the theme. The trick above to replace the tumbler image is ok but what if you want to add 5 more social icons that are not in the admin choices? There does not seems to be a way to add your own icon and color rollovers or no rollovers.
Would that mean one has to hack helper-social-media.php directly and add manually the separators and links to icons and hrefs there…right?
EDIT: Maybe simpler…how do you add a simple HTML or text link? Lets say next to the last icon I wanted to have a text link…where would I add that ? in what file?April 30, 2013 at 6:05 am in reply to: Turning off bouncing circle image for certain images hrefs #116382
ok so no way to add something to the img or href tag?
Its either all off or all on?
What i meant is isnt’t there a way to simply add something to the href that would bring a tooltip…lets say for a normal link for example so that you can have tooltips on any href or img you want
I was able to re order them using a plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-types-order/
But I would prefer not having to. Any recommendations?
ok I checked on another server and this is a php & gd configuration issue I believe as I was able to make it work on another server with a diff php/gd/php.ini version.
I ll report when I know what the differences where
I wish you would allow posts to be edited for the first 24hrs…anyway here is what I meant.
The css is gone no matter what page I set in woocommerce as the page template. The default sidebar appears below and the ‘main’ area white background isn t there.This ONLY happens on a product page, all the other pages of woocommerce work and look great in the theme
I did some more testing and the same problem is in the Corona theme. the individual product page does not seem to pick any template and gives a page without the main area and no background and adds a default sidebar but below the content.
All the other pages work fine…cart, shop, etc
That problem is not there on twenty eleven and other themes. Could it be the framework?
I basically can t figure out how to assign a page template to any item for sale.
I create a blank page and assign it fullwidth then in woocommerce tell it to use that page as a template and I get a page with minimum css and a sidebar under the content.
I noticed that on the first day the theme was released. Firefox on mac.
At first it does not show but if you open all the demo’s front portfolio items after the 3rd or 4th the issue happens.
I just checked it and the first 2 or 3 were fine then after I clicked the 3rd or 4th the next one showed to the right but interestingly it did not at first. (IMAGE LIST)August 30, 2012 at 4:41 pm in reply to: Lazy load not working with Corona? Lightbox issue? #89105
I can t use pagination on a page that has a gallery of 400 images?
Or can I? How would I do that since the Gallery is part of a [shortcode]?August 29, 2012 at 12:01 am in reply to: Anyway to keep the ajax open effect but link to a page in portfolios? #89042
I ll look into it…would be a cool effect on certain links. I was thinking of calling it like when you call the ref=”lightbox” you would still have the href go to a page but it would first execute the ajax effect then go to the page.
Can you point me to where the current code is located ie what file hold the ajax call?
Also look into a plug in called Custom Upload Dir…very useful to sort photos uploads by categories instead of a single giant folderDecember 30, 2011 at 10:18 pm in reply to: CORONA causes mess at FTP: all uploads are in the month order of installing date #56281
Can I also recommend Custom Upload Dir a cool plug in that will upload your media/photos in folders inside the /Uploads/ folder based on your categories. So instead of having a giant folder with only yearly folders you can have as many folders.
Very useful when you have hundred of images that become thousands with all the different format sizes. We now have images sorted by cities and restaurants or theaters etc… so its much easier to find photos if you have to dig in that folder manually instead of a giant single one.
My 2 cents
Yeah…disable all plugins that do Statistics like Wassup and Slimstats.
Actually I would recommend using google analytics instead of live plugins. Slimstats brought one of our server down to a crawl last month, these live stats plugins are a b*tch. If you are using them you are better with Google Analytics even if it is delayed. There is also one called Top10 that gives light stats of what pages are the most visited…it is light and may be better to judge traffic.
My 2 cents
I had the same issue and had to change the email in both the WP area where you set the site email and in the corona options (ie refresh the email). Not sure if it was my host misbehaving but after a couple minutes when both were the same the contact form was going through.
One thing you can check is create a new user and see if you receive an email about it. If you do then your email settings are working for wordpress and you can start troubleshooting for the theme
nope…doesn t work, only using a plugin works.
I know its weird and I don t remember modifying any files related to this. I may do an install on another test machine and try to hunt down the culprit.
Sorry but it does not work. I tried that before submitting :) and it only lists the URL
Hence why I have to use Smartyoutube plugin to embed videos…weirdNovember 18, 2011 at 3:58 am in reply to: Large gap beween the 'Elements' added on the home page – how do I reduce this? #56300
Its your Social Pop plugin
Add an extension to firefox called Web Developer
The you will be able to left click in an area and inspect it.
Looks like that plug in is screwing up your page. Turn off your plugins and see if the problem is still thereNovember 17, 2011 at 8:32 pm in reply to: CORONA causes mess at FTP: all uploads are in the month order of installing date #56272
I did a fresh install and uploaded an image and it goes correctly into 2011/11 so I have no idea why yours would upload it to another folder.
Have you tried the plugin I linked?
Looks to me that your server thinks its one month behind the proper date
