    I found a previous post about moving all the information (meta list, title, description) under the photo which was stretched out proportionally to fit more space.

    However, I want the title to remain where it is (or even placed on the top left, above the photo if possible)

    keep the meta list next to the photo

    and have the description below the photo.

    How do I make this change?

    #65393

    or have the text wrap around the image, starting under the meta list and continuing underneath the photo?

    moving the meta list to the left of the photo?

    Hi Jessipoo,

    I know Kreisi posted a quick fix for automatically wrapping the information block underneath the portfolio image but reorganizing the entire portfolio pages is a bit out of the scope of what we can offer through support.

    Hi Devin,

    Can I just ask how it is out of the scope of support to point in the right direction for looking for the answers?

    If you’re not able to offer support for a specific question (such as above) then I am sure people would be much more appreciative to be told where to look for their answers, what files need editing etc

    But imo, the question above is a valid question. Its layout, i dont understand how that doesn’t come under the blanket of support here, if not here, the place where the template was designed / developed, then where?

    Can I just say that the last time I bought (and edited, heavily) a theme from Kriesi, the support was unbelievably good! In fact the only questions that where “out of the scope” where questions about customising 3rd party plugins, but even then we were pointed to the right place and not just told no!

    Sorry for chipping in on someone else’s post here but it has been getting to me somewhat recently.

    I guess I am just shocked as I expected the same service I received in the past but have been left totally underwhelmed by the whole experience.

    The only thing keeping me here right now is that this Theme is so great! It has such amazing potential yet a few nit picky things remain which are taking the shine off it.

    Sorry for jumping on your post ‘jessipoo’ I hope you find the answers you’re looking for..

    Thanks,

    Hi, I´ve had the same problem, and I solved it like this:

    http://www.riberanature.com

    (I hate the style of the site I´m doing, but that´s what my client wants, so please forget about the design) if you have a look to the portfolio in the front page, I think it is what you are looking for.

    I also posted the way I archived it.

    http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/change-format-of-portfolo-entries-page

    Basically you have to modify where to place this:

    Code:
    the_content(__(‘Read more →’,’avia_framework’));

    , by simply moving it downwards few

    Code:
    <divs>

    below. Which is in helper-templates.php in the “includes” folder.

    Hope I have been able to help. I took me a while to find out how to change it.

    #65399

    gobian,

    This is pretty much exactly what I am after.

    If its not too much trouble could you please post a snippet of the code placement, I tried altering mine and having been able to get the same results as you.

    Thank you so much

    Hi, hope this will help you.

    Basically, you should find something like this at the end of helper-template.php

    Code:
    echo “<div class=’ajax_slide ajax_slide_”.$id.” twelve units’ data-slide-id=’”.$id.”‘ >”;

    echo “<div class=’inner_slide’>”;

    echo “<div class=’flex_column two_third first’>”;
    echo $data->slider;
    echo “</div>”;

    echo “<div class=’portfolio-entry one_third’>”;
    echo “<h1 class=’ajax-portfolio-title’>”.get_the_title().”</h1>”;

    echo “<div class=’entry-content’>”;
    $meta = avia_portfolio_meta($id);
    if($meta)
    {
    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, ‘small’);
    echo $meta;
    }
    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, ‘small’);
    the_content(__(‘Read more →’,’avia_framework’));
    echo “</div>”;

    echo “</div>”;

    echo “</div>”;

    echo “</div>”;

    die();
    }
    }

    And mine now looks like this:

    echo "<div class='ajax_slide ajax_slide_".$id." twelve units' data-slide-id='".$id."' >";

    echo "<div class='inner_slide'>";

    echo "<div class='flex_column two_third first'>";
    echo $data->slider;
    echo "</div>";

    echo "<div class='portfolio-entry one_third'>";
    echo "<h2 class='ajax-portfolio-title'>".get_the_title()."</h2>";

    echo "<div class='entry-content'>";
    $meta = avia_portfolio_meta($id);
    if($meta)
    {
    //echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');
    echo "<hr invisible>";

    echo $meta;

    }
    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');

    echo "</div>";

    echo "</div>";

    echo "<p><hr invisible></p>";

    the_content(__('Read more →','avia_framework'));

    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');

    echo "</div>";

    echo "</div>";

    die();
    }
    }

    I have just moved around the

    Code:
    the_content(__(‘Read more →’,’avia_framework’));

    to place it outside the divs which are to the right of the image, also I´ve placed few dividers to get it a bit better.

    Any question don´t hesitate, ask me, I´ll try my best :)

    #65401

    Thank you so much, that is great! I shall tell Geri of your good help ;-)

    Do you have an email address?

    Thanks

    #65402

    I don´t know why the code is is split in 3 different boxes each, but they should be together (I mean here in this page) :)

    #65403

    Hey yes!

    He´s going to flip out, as he knows me because we used to work together as a 3d artists, not web designers :)

    (Email address hidden if logged out)

    Take care.

    #65404

    Hey there,

    I just cant get this to work the same as yours without braking my site (actually wont load)

    Here is my original code,

    echo "<div class='ajax_slide ajax_slide_".$id." twelve units' data-slide-id='".$id."' >";

    echo "<div class='inner_slide'>";

    echo "<div class='flex_column two_third first'>";
    echo $data->slider;
    echo "</div>";

    echo "<div class='portfolio-entry one_third'>";
    echo "<h1 class='ajax-portfolio-title'>".get_the_title()."</h1>";

    echo "<div class='entry-content'>";
    $meta = avia_portfolio_meta($id);
    if($meta)
    {
    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');
    echo $meta;
    }
    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');
    the_content(__('Read more &rarr;','avia_framework'));

    echo "</div>";

    echo "</div>";

    echo "</div>";

    echo "</div>";

    die();
    }
    }

    Sorry for being so dumb here, I would be a happy man if I can replicate what you have been able to achieve.

    Thanks,

    #65405

    Hi All,

    I fixed Gobians code block to display the whole thing together.

    Re: Support, the support requests have to have a limitation at a certain point. To give you a frame of reference, there have been about 30k support posts in the past year. If Kreisi would have continued handling them all himself (and do the degree you experienced with the Display theme), this theme never would have been developed (no time).

    I do apologize for not providing a direction, we are working to provide some further documentation for the Avia framework so things like this can be self modified. Gobain is correct in that is where to modify the output for the individual ajax portfolio entry. Its a good place to start and with some modification will allow for the display you are looking for.

    #65406

    Hi Devin,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I understand your point, however Kreisi isn’t handling all support any more, if I am not mistaken it looks like he has done a great thing in employing people to cover that area for him? Its just a shame that the level of support that two or three dedicated employees isn’t even at the same level as what Kreisi used to dish out by himself.

    Dont get me wrong, you guys do a great job when we get responses, always to the point and usually bang on the money.

    It just seems lately that people are waiting, in some cases, weeks before an acknowledgement.

    #65407

    And thank you to Gobian for pointing me in the right direction! Very helpful mate, I have finally managed to come up with something that I can live with. Cheers mate!

    #65408

    Hi, glad you could sort it out.

    As I said to you earlier, I have tweaked the file for some other features, and at the end I did not know if the code the way I posted was good enough for someone else, but as said, glad at least I could point you out in the right direction.

    I believe sometimes when we are trying to solve a problem we are facing, we just need some little help on where to try to look around, usually there is no need to get a full code solution but a glimpse of where to find it.

    To get some specs or docs (I must say the avia framework is quite well documented within the files themselves) but to get some docs to see how has been developed would be a tremendous help for anyone trying to go further with this theme, so that´s great news :)

    #65409

    Yes I agree, I am looking forward to the documentation!

    I actually don’t mind playing around with all this stuff when I get time, it is nothing like what I do for a living and generally shy away from any form of coding or developing scripts etc but when needs must I am happy to roll my sleeves up.

    #65410

    Thanks gobian and brobins, I’m going to try it but my knowledge of CSS is super ultra basic. Brobins mentioned having problems with it because gobian changed some of the code for other features, so could you possibly post what needs to be changed (without putting in new code that may break my site?)

    Thanks.

    #65411

    jessipoo,

    Here is the code I am now using, you can check out my site to see what this achieves here http://www.benrobins.com

    echo "<div class='ajax_slide ajax_slide_".$id." twelve units' data-slide-id='".$id."' >";

    echo "<div class='inner_slide'>";

    echo "<div class='flex_column two_third first'>";
    echo $data->slider;
    echo "</div>";

    echo "<div class='portfolio-entry one_third'>";
    echo "<h1 class='ajax-portfolio-title'>".get_the_title()."</h1>";

    echo "<div class='entry-content'>";
    $meta = avia_portfolio_meta($id);
    if($meta)
    {
    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');
    echo $meta;
    }

    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');

    echo "</div>";

    echo "</div>";

    echo avia_advanced_hr(false, 'small');
    the_content(__('Read more &rarr;','avia_framework'));

    echo "</div>";

    echo "</div>";

    die();
    }
    }

    This is at the bottom of the helper-templates.php file

    Hope this helps

    #65412

    gobian and brobins, after trying kriesi’s css solution which didn’t work, i’ve attempted this helper-templates.php solution, but i’m still not having any luck. are there any other steps besides moving this line down two divs?

    the_content(__('Read more →','avia_framework'));

    I’m still not seeing the post content below the image… so I’m wondering if there’s anything else I’ve missed.

    The test post is here: http://50.22.40.242/~glutenfr/recipes/coconut-macaroons/

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi, yes and sorry, I have realized just now, that we didn´t mentioned this hack was for the portfolio “slideshow”, the one that you place from the dynamic templates. In your case the file to tweak is not the helper-templates.php but “loop-portfolio-single.php” at the end of that file, you will find the same line of code, again, just place it 2 divs below. Try it, and let us know if that works for you.

    Hope that helps :)

    #65414

    Basically, the first tweak (the one in helper-templates.php) should fix the portfolio you have in “Recipes”, the change in loop-portfolio-single.php should fix the entries displaying the portfolio single pages (like the one you have posted here)

    #65415

    Hey Ben, btw I love that Hotels.com commercial, how did you get your videos to play that way from the portfolio single entry? I had to find other ways of making mine work

    #65416

    Gobian, I am having a hard time understanding what you mean by:

    Basically, the first tweak (the one in helper-templates.php) should fix the portfolio you have in “Recipes”, the change in loop-portfolio-single.php should fix the entries displaying the portfolio single pages (like the one you have posted here)

    in my case ( http://jessicama.co.cc/ ) I want the text of an entry, once clicked and opened, to be displayed below the image, full width like Ben Robins’ site. These two tweak options have left me a little confused…

    Thank you for all your help btw. It’s really great to see other members helping out

    #65417

    Hi, no worries, I think I have explained it a bit confusing.

    In this theme (Angular) there are to ways of showing the portfolio, one is like you have in your front page (with a slideshow and the thumbnails of other entries below), but there is another way of showing the portfolio. Like the one Vibegirl showed earlier http://50.22.40.242/~glutenfr/recipes/coconut-macaroons/

    In your case, you will have to modify the helper-templates.php file, find at the end of it the

    Code:
    the_content(__(‘Read more →’,’avia_framework’));

    and cut it from where it is, and paste it after a couple of <div> lines that are just after it.

    Hope that clarifies it :)

    #65418

    Gobian, I can’t thank you enough! That worked like a charm, and now the layout is exactly like I want it.

    Thanks SOOOO much!

    #65420

    Hey jessipoo,

    Thanks for your comments.

    All my videos are external links to either YouTube or Vimeo.. Seem to work well although I wish I could force the YouTube links to play HD by default :-(

    #65421

    I find it very clear on that small player. There has to be a way to force HD.. maybe in the settings of the upload on youtube itself?

    #65422

    Thanks gobian. I moved the content read more line down under two divs.

    The problem is it’s no longer displayed in the white square so it seems very separated from my portfolio content.

    http://jessicama.co.cc/

    click on the Eco Traito portfolio item and you’ll see.

    Any ideas on a fix?

    Is there also a way to change the width of the text?

    This is asking for a lot, but is there a way to have a small excerpt and then a read more (on the right of the photo, as defaulted) and when you click read more it moves to the bottom of the photo?
