I just want to modify some code to the default-template.php or single-event.php from the events calendar in my child theme.
When I copy the complete folder config-events-calendar in my child theme no changes are reflecting. The changes only reflect when I edit these files in the parent theme. But this would be annoying regarding future updates.
I read a thread from a year ago where one had the same issue and try to force the files in the child theme, but seems the code above is not working.
Or…we should get the ability to load a single post /archive in the page structure we build. Let’s say I have my blog overview posts in a 2/3th column, the single post or archive should also load in that column so it stays within the context.
Not sure if you’re following me, but happy to discuss it further.
I agree. In a further extend, Archive and single post pages should be able to get a custom layout with custom navigation.
I give you an example of a very annoying issue with Enfold:
One can build a custom news page with a full width submenu and let’s say image header. When I click on a news item I lose all that navigation (I can’t place my full width submenu in a single post page), I lose the header (I can’t place a custom header) and thereby suddenly I am on a single post page with only the main menu visible and losing my site navigation. Same if a user clicks on a category, date or tag I lose all my handbuild navigation and layout and I land on the archive pages where I can’t create the same layout as where the user came from.
This the most disturbing issue with enfold as there is no consistency.
I think this can be solved by allowing us to build an archive page and single post page using the layout editor. Or somehow add 2 elements in the layout editor which contains “single post” and “post archive”.
Enfold is great because we can build complex navigations, but somehow it is not very userfriendly now as one can get completely lost by landing on a single post or archive page.
Thanks for considering a solution for this. It will only make Enfold the most powerful template ever ;)
Got it. The trick was (and I think you might correct this for future releases) to do this:
$img_style = 'style="background-image: url('.$attachment.');" title="'.$alt.'"';
This overrides the title attribute in the outer a tag with the alt given to the image.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction though :)
I tried this, but it doesn’t work.
The problem is the alt of the image is not shown in the yellow tip, but the title of the caption in the a tag. Now you just removed the title attribute in the img tag.
<a style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px;"... title="Marathon <br>50x180cm, foil on forex panel" itemprop="contentURL"><div class="av-inner-masonry-sizer"></div><figure class="av-inner-masonry main_color"><div class="av-masonry-outerimage-container"><div class="av-masonry-image-container" style="background-image: url(http://blabla.jpg);"><img src="blabla.jpg.jpg" alt="Marathon"></div></div></figure></a>
This is really a concern as html is not rendered in these browser tooltips (hence I see html tags in the tooltip) and a caption should not be shown there. Some captions are really large. These tooltips should show the alt of the img. As you see this is nicely set at “Marathon”.
What could be a solution for this?

As written before, this is standard behavior in enfold, as seen on
As you can see the white boxes with title/excerpt cover the thumbnail, they are not positioned below.August 18, 2015 at 9:01 am in reply to: masonry blog show title and excerpt below thumbnail #489298
The portfolio is not an option, as I want to display the blog items. Using the no gap/flexible masonry I see the images are cropped.
I really do want this in the blog grid with masonry setting, as this displays the items exactly as I want, except for the title/excerpt covering thumbs ;)
SAugust 17, 2015 at 7:20 pm in reply to: masonry blog show title and excerpt below thumbnail #489075
No, because for now I use the blog grid. Ideally I want to use masonry.
I think it is very clear what the problem is?
http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold/blog/masonry-blog/ also has this. The white boxes are covering a big part of the thumbnails. In many occasions this is very disruptive to the images.
So how can I force them below the thumbnail instead of them covering the thumbnail.
SAugust 15, 2015 at 11:44 am in reply to: masonry blog show title and excerpt below thumbnail #488211
see link. I don’t understand why the white box with text and title is covering the thumbnail on “always display” option.
It doesn’t make sense. How can I put it below the thumbnail, see we see the full thumbnail image?
I can’t figure out the css behind this.
I noticed with the update of the video background in the color section, a nice preloader is implemented there.
Could this preloader also be used for the background images in the color section and let these background images also fade in please.
Now most content comes in nicely with a short fade in, but when I use background images (who are usually quite heavy) they just plop in, which destructs a bit the nice flow of fading in elements throughout the theme.
Thanks for considering. (A small add I think, but great value ;)
Ok, I’ll wait with that update then after you guys tested it ;)
Thanks for the quick reply.
While waiting for reply I fixed #1.
But 2 & 3 are still major issues which I don’t know to solve.February 4, 2014 at 1:27 pm in reply to: No detail pages woocommerce, products not listed, etc #219327February 4, 2014 at 12:24 pm in reply to: No detail pages woocommerce, products not listed, etc #219302February 3, 2014 at 4:09 pm in reply to: No detail pages woocommerce, products not listed, etc #218838
Hi, maybe some are requested already:
1. Easier custom logo integration (add ability to give width and height of custom logo). Too many users struggle with the current logo integration.
2. easier customization of the menu. Some like it simple (choose background color (also hover), text color (also hover), height, font family and size)
The above two are mainly for an easier customization of the header overall.
3. Unify the styling and have import/export for all languages. When running multisite and multiple languages it’s a real pain going through all style settings per language.
4. extensive search feature in the forum. Too many results from various themes pop up now when doing search.
Hey guys, I second this. I love enfold, but a simple thing as adding a custom logo is really a pain. Even an experienced CSS’er like me struggles with it. The header is not built in a flexible way. The logo acts strange and one has to add way too much custom code just to get it fixed. I notice the logo gets inline css code when uploading.
This would be a major improvement for a next update. Make the custom logo (which everyone does) simple and easy.
Way too many posts about people struggling with the logo.January 31, 2014 at 9:55 pm in reply to: Language selector top header no flags but country code #217661
I found it in the meanwhile, deeply hidden in these forums.
It would be nice to search only in “enfold” forum. Is this possible any way to do advanced searches?
The older forum had more search functionality.
Thanks.July 14, 2013 at 1:36 pm in reply to: Portfolio items create blog parent as active ancestor/parent #129475
I have found a way around it. Instead of using a page, I added a parent category for all portfolio-items as menu item.
That way I get the archive page and when going to a detail you get a class .current-portfolio-ancestor which can be added to the current menu item styles.
The filtering you can activate by setting ‘sort’ => ‘yes’ in taxonomy-portflio_entries.
I love the contact form option from the layout builder/shortcodes.
It actually removes the need for a plugin, and most form plugins I simply dislike because of their complex nature for something fairly simple.
2 things lack there in my opininion, to make it a nice full featured form:
a. datepicker (something often needed, eg reservation forms)
b. insert a title/explanation/space/textline whatever in between the input fields…especially useful for longer forms
Now I tried with inserting text in between the shortcodes, but it gets stripped away.
Now this contact form is like 95% ok, but often the client asks a small extra which in’t possible and then I’m forced to leave this one behind. I believe it would be useful for all your templates since I believe you will reuse the avia builder for new themes.
Thanks for reading
I’ve made a testaccount for you.
The checkbox issue seems gone in 1.71
But see what happens when I put text in between the contact shortcode: it’s stripped away. I’d like to know a method to prevent this, if possible
This is my shortcode:
[av_contact email='blabla' button='Submit' title='Send us mail' sent='Your message has been sent!' autorespond='' captcha='']
[av_contact_field label='Name' type='text' options='' check='is_empty' width='']
TEST INNER TITLE
[av_contact_field label='E-Mail' type='text' options='' check='is_email' width='']
[av_contact_field label='Subject' type='text' options='' check='is_empty' width='']
TEST INNER TITLE
[av_contact_field label='Message' type='textarea' options='' check='is_empty' width='']
[av_contact_field label='check this' type='checkbox' options='' check='' width='']
I’m using latest build, 1.7, working locally.
Please try implementing a checkbox in the contact form and see what you get when receiving the email when the checkbox is checked.
I always receive false, whether it’s checked or not
Please also try to insert text in between the shortcode of a form, like I exampled above
It’s fairly standard stuff, which I encounter also on a default install of 1.7
Ok, It should have been this and now it works:
<?php echo bloginfo('name');?>
<?php echo bloginfo('description');?>
Found it, but it doesn’t work properly
I did (according to support before) this on 137 in header.php (i commented out the logo line)
echo "<div class='wp_title'>". bloginfo('name') ."</div>";
echo "<div class='wp_description'>". bloginfo('description') ."</div>";
Strangely, this appears in my source (the title is placed outside the div tags, so my styling has no success!)
<div class="container">The Title<div class="wp_title"></div>The description<div class="wp_description"></div></div>
Francesco, you need to recompile your style preferences, so the style generator does it work.May 31, 2013 at 1:29 pm in reply to: Portfolio items create blog parent as active ancestor/parent #122169
I’m using page parent, because not all pages/posts have their own sub menu item. This way, when a user is in a deep nested sub page he still knows in which main menu item he is.
It’s consistent everywhere except for the custom taxonomy portfolio.
WP sees it as a blog post regarding page parent, instead of a portfolio post.
I understand it’s hard to make the parent page correct for a portfolio post, but at least it shouldn’t make the blog page as parent, because now, when I click a portfolio item, my blog menu-item gets highlighted as active :)
So if you could advice me where to comment out or edit where this happens?
Basically all my portfolio items can have the same page parent, if this makes it easier.
