    Dear Devin,

    The logo I used and which you see on the website is exactly the size required by Coherence, 200×100. But I want to create a WIDER logo. I want to create a logo which is 300 pixels wide. Can you please tell me what CSS adjustments are required to use a 300 pixel wide logo? Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Phil

    Dear Devin,

    Could you please tell me the code that I should enter into the “Quick CSS” field, to accommodate a 300 pixel wide logo? I would greatly appreciate this help. Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Thank you elames, and thank you Ismael. I appreciate it.

    Dear Ismael,

    Thank you for your support. I think one solution is the following. Instead of placing the CSS code in the Coherence theme options CSS field, instead place the CSS code inside the WPML CSS field, in: WPML > Languages > Language switcher options > Additional CSS.

    When your original CSS code is added in here, the change takes effect perfectly across languages, without having to use “!important”.

    Ismael, and everyone at Kriesi, than you for producing wonderful themes, and thank you for your excellent support. Have a very nice day today.

    Kind regards,

    Phil

    Dear Ismael,

    I am worry to pester you again. I am working with WPML. The custom.css change works perfectly on the default English version, but on the foreign language versions, the title and the thin line are still there, as if no changes had been made to the custom.css. I may have to edit an actual file, perhaps a php template. I’d just like to comment or delete out the span line and the H1 header. Is this possible, or can these changes only be made through CSS? Again, I greatly appreciate your help, and I am sorry to bug you. Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Phil

    THANK YOU!!!!!! Ismael, I appreciate it!

    in reply to: LinkedIn PNG for Corona #72050

    Dear Devin,

    The website address you provided to Karthik16 for the iconSweets2 icons has a link to download the iconSweets2 icon set as a zipped file. However, that link does not work. My guess is that the creator of these icons, understandably, wants people to purchase his “Deluxe” set, rather than continuing to use his free set. After looking around a bit I was able to find a link for the standard, free version of the iconSweets2 set that does work, on this page: http://replyz.com/c/10506210-does-anyone-have-the-iconsweets2-psd-the-download-is-still-broken-for-me-cc-yummygum

    I hope this is helpful.

    I have two requests:

    1) I do not have Photoshop, and the iconSweets2 icon set is presented as a Photoshop file. I would greatly appreciate it if you could make available the LinkedIn social icon, but as a PNG that we can use with Corona- both the regular LinkedIn PNG and the “hover replace” LinkedIn PNG.

    2) Do the instructions you wrote above provide for the “hover replace” effect of the new LinkedIn social icon, so that the manually created LinkedIn icon behaves the same as the built in Twitter and Facebook icons? Please let us know. Thank you for your help.

    Kind regards,

    Phil

    in reply to: LinkedIn PNG for Corona #72048

    Dear Kriesi Team,

    I too would love to have exactly the same feature as requested by karthik16: a small LinkedIn chicklet that behaves in exactly the same way as the existing Social Media chicklets (Twitter, Facebook): that is, a LinkedIn chicklet which:

    - changes color on mouseover

    – puts up a message, i.e. “Connect on LinkedIn”

    – links to some URL that we specify

    I don’t ask that you make changes to the Corona theme itself to make this possible through the WordPress admin area- I know that that would be asking for too much for such a small feature request. But if you could simply provide us with the two necessary images, and the PHP code, so that each of us could hard code the changes directly into the header.php file ourselves, that would be more than enough. I believe that many Corona users would find this most useful. Please do let us know. Thank you-

    Kind regards,

    Phil

    Dear Chris,

    Thank you very much for this, I appreciate it very much. And thank you V2Park for pointing out the change in the “margin: 0 0px 0 0;” line in .blog-meta.

    Again, Chris, thank you so much- this was very kind of you, your taking the time to explain this. Heel erg bedankt.

    Dear Chris,

    The page I am referring to is here: http://www.decemberdinner.com/?p=42

    It’s the single blog post page, and it shows the full content of one single blog entry. In my Corona theme options, for the Default Blog Layout, I’m using “Big Preview Image, Right Sidebar”, but by clicking on the link above and looking at the page, I guess that will be obvious. The modification that I request your help with is the following:

    1) instead of the metadata appearing on the left, in its own column, simply span the metadata across on one single line, and place it underneath the Title of the blog post. As an illustration of this- spanning the metadata across one single line, and placing it underneath the blog post’s title- see Kriesi’s page here: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/corona/2011/03/31/this-is-a-nice-post/

    2) now use the white space on the left side that’s been cleared up- the space that previously contained the metadata- and expand all the blog’s data into that space; specifically, span the blog post’s title, metadata (all on one horizontal line) and blog post text, so that it uses the full width of the white space beneath the Big Preview image.

    That’s it. The Big Preview image spans 610 pixels across, from the left side of the page all the way up to the Right Sidebar. The change above would mean you’re making full use of the entire width of that 610 pixels of white space underneath the Big Preview image. I believe it would be just great. No other changes- the “Related Posts” and “Leave A Reply” sections on the bottom look beautiful as they are- but if for the sake of simplicity you need to modify the “Related Posts” and “Leave A Reply” sections in order to achieve the above, I trust your judgment.

    I don’t know PHP or CSS and I don’t know how much work this change would require, but I can say this- I believe this modification would greatly enhance the readability and the appearance of longer blog post entries. If you agree and if you would be willing to make this modification, or show Corona users how to make it on their own, it would be fantastic, and I would sincerely appreciate it. Thank you-

    Phil

    in reply to: Where are those Blog templates? #52623

    I am struggling with the same issue addressed above by Monsoon and I could really use some help. The goal: to maximize the readability of the actual text of a blog post on the single blog post page (single.php). The problem: much space is lost both in the sidebars as well as underneath the metadata, so that on the single blog post page, the blog post’s actual text is forced to reside in a relatively narrow vertical channel. This is not ideal in terms of website usability as it requires constant scrolling, and it doesn’t look as beautiful as it could.

    I tried the solution presented at http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/custom-layout-for-posts (basically, creating a “Fullsize, No Sidebar” template in the Template Builder, including the “Post/Page Content” as an Element in that template, and then, when editing the blog post itself, applying that dynamic no sidebar template to the blog post). However, doing this strips the blog post of all those things which make it a blog post- that is, the blog post’s metadata disappears, the blog’s tags disappear, the blog post’s “Related Posts” disappear, and importantly, the blog post’s “Responses” area disappears, so that nobody can comment on the blog post.

    This is my fourth Kriesi theme (and my favorite) but I don’t have the CSS/PHP skills to customize a PHP page. If either or both of you would be kind enough to provide PHP code for a modified single.php PHP page, something that would allow me to display a single blog post like the one here: http://i.imgur.com/8exz0.jpg I would greatly appreciate it. This image shows a page which recovers the white space currently lost underneath the metadata, while at the same time preserving the blog post’s “blog content” characteristics. Essentially, you’ve got two columns, and the following content:

    LEFT COLUMN (2/3)…………..RIGHT COLUMN (1/3)

    Big preview image………………column on right, goes all the way down

    Post Title

    Metadata

    Post Content

    Related Posts

    Response Area

    I would greatly, greatly appreciate it. Thank you-

    in reply to: Simple PHP question for Avisio #43576

    I am a PHP idiot but after researching this, I believe I should use something like:

    WP_Query( ‘page_id=123′ );

    if I want to query data from the page whose page ID is #123 (it’s a page, not a post).

    I took that function and combined it with some of the code above and I now have this:

    http://www.pastie.org/1796880

    Again, the goal here is to get the website to display, from the page whose page ID is #123, (1) the title in h1, (2) the “additional headline” in h2 (the “additional headline” is that field whose data appears across the top of each Avisio page) and (3) the content from the page, as regular sized text.

    This code I wrote does NOT break my website, so for me that’s major progress- but it fails to display any text at all!

    Can someone on the forum who knows PHP please give me a hand? You would make my weekend if you could fix this code- you’d put me out of my misery! Really I would so much appreciate it, I am almost done with this Avisio website I’m building!!!!!

    in reply to: Simple PHP question for Avisio #43575

    There’s something missing from this code. Quick review- the code you gave me was to display a certain page’s (1) title, (2) additional heading, and (3) content. I want to dynamically generate these three pieces of content, but I want to hard wire into the PHP script the post ID of the page whose content will be delivered. The code you gave me is here: http://pastie.org/1796465 but I don’t see where I’m supposed to insert the post ID!!!

    What PHP code is needed to say: “display the title, additional heading and content from post #123″???????? Please let me know. Thank you for your help Dude.

    Dear Dude,

    I understand that I cannot ask you to put a great deal of energy into getting Avisio to support any one particular plugin when there are so many plugins out there, and I know that you and Kriesi are already extremely busy helping people manage the basic functionality of the theme. With this in mind, could you, rather than getting involved in the nuts and bolts of the plugin itself, instead provide PHP code in which the tabs on the homepage are disregarded altogether, and in which- for the sake of simplicity- the code just calls up a page’s title and content based for instance on that page’s WordPress page ID, hard wired into the index.php file? That alone would be great. The original code in question which governs the tabs is here:

    http://pastie.org/1753625

    In place of that code above, could you please provide simple code that says “never mind the tabs, just display the title and content of this one page, whose ID is 123″? While the tabs and mainpage options functionality would be lost, a hard coded but very simple PHP workaround would at least have the virtue of allowing me to use the Avisio theme (my favorite Kriesi theme- I am also the very happy owner of Twicet and Display). I would really appreciate this-

    Thank you-

    Philippe

    in reply to: Open window from the sidebar Display 3 in 1 #30168

    Dear James,

    I am having the same trouble that Sandrapi had.

    (1) on the SIDEBAR menu, a menu item, when it matches the current page, should be a different color- black, for instance- to indicate to the website visitor, “this is the page that you are currently on.” With my Display installation this does not happen, no matter which skin I try to use (Light, Minimal, or Dark).

    All links in the SIDEBAR menu, whether created with the Custom Menu widget or created with the Pages widget, always remain the same color, INCLUDING the link for the current page. So for example if I visit my current website (uses the Minimal skin) and go to the “About” page, then the SIDEBAR widget entry for “About,” the page I’m on, should be black, but it’s gray, like all the other menu items. This remains the case even after I followed your instructions above; I took the style.css file and at line 317 I changed it from this:

    .sidebarmenu .current {

    font-weight:bold;

    }

    to this:

    .sidebarmenu .current {

    font-weight:bold;

    color: #000000;

    }

    This change did not solve the problem.

    (2) THERE IS A SECOND, RELATED PROBLEM. Please carefully note- while this second problem also relates to menus, this second problem is connected to the MAIN menu, the horizontal menu that runs across the TOP of the page.

    Once again, if one is on the “About” page, the MAIN menu link to the “About” page should appear as black, or somehow different, but again, it remains gray, just like all the other MAIN menu links.

    (3) There is a third, possibly related problem. This is not about font color but rather about font size. My “About” page has 1 subpage and 2 subpages (one child and 2 grandchildren). If you mouseover the link to the “About” page in the MAIN menu, the subpage and the 2 subpages appear- but none of the subpages or sub-subpages are appearing in the smaller font- they appear in exactly the same size font as the top level MAIN menu links. Main menu subpage entries should appear in a slightly smaller font, as you see here when you mouseover Kriesi’s “About” link the MAIN menu on top:

    http://www.kriesi.at/demos/display/minimal/index.html

    Other info: clean WordPress 3.01 install, not an upgrade from 2.x; also, clean Display theme install, version 2. If you want the URL of the development server or WP Admin access, please email me off list. If you could please help with these questions I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you-

    Kind regards,

    Phil
