    Hi,

    I have a couple of questions and want to know if you can help me:

    Notes: I’m using a flashlight child theme

    1. Responsive sidebar: I want to have the complete left sidebar on every screen so the visitor doesn’t have to scroll down to see all. Can you tell me which classes in CSS should I change to accomplish this?

    2. I want to have the portfolio page http://www.wp.vasquezvillegasfotografia.com/portafolio/ in ASC order, I’ve tried other topic answer but it did’t work. What i did was to include this code in my child theme functions.php file:

    //Order portfolio in ASC order
    function loop_portfolio_query( $location )
    {
    if ( $location == 'loop-portfolio' )
    {
    global $avia_config;
    if(isset($avia_config['new_query'])) {
    $avia_config['new_query']['orderby'] = "title";
    $avia_config['new_query']['order'] = "ASC";
    query_posts($avia_config['new_query']);
    }
    }
    }

    add_action( 'avia_action_query_check' , 'loop_portfolio_query', 10, 1 );

    3. I’m using a plugin for watermarks http://codecanyon.net/item/premium-watermark-for-wordpress-plugin/1779630 but when is active the images from the slideshow need a lot of time to get loaded. Do you have any idea why is this happening? do you recommend another plugin for watermarks? I’m also working with the plugin author to solve the issues.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Regards,

    Alejandro.

    Hi,

    1. This theme itself is not responsive so to make the sidebar responsive would require a serious effort. I think some in the past wanted to do it but I don’t recall if they ever succeeded , but I haven’t seen Flashlight being fully Responsive (primarily because of that sidebar I suspect). You can try searching via google, limiting search to kriesi.at domain for responsive Flashlight to see if any of the websites managed to do it.

    2. I would use this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-types-order/ to order the cpt in any order you want. It non intrusive and quickly lets you control the sort order.

    3. I think watermarks are a waste of time just as are plugins that prevent right click of mouse button. Besides messing up a nice photo that someone could place on pinterest, that could go viral and give tons of business, you will just annoy potential clients while doing very little in someone interested in your image (anyone who knows photoshop can remove most watermarks, unless its really huge. The one you are using I can take off in 20 mins. I am sorry, I don’t know of any.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for your response.

    1. I searched and it’s not really an easy thing to do. For the moment do you know how can I prevent the Copyright section on the sidebar to be overlaid by the controls? I remove the left: 50px of the sidebar to align it to left.

    2. Thanks for your suggestion, it worked like a charm.

    3. I will continue to address this issue, the thing is the client wants to have some images watermarked to prevent misuse, because they want to sell them. And at least prevent regular users to use the images without buying.

    Thanks in advance.

    Alejandro.

    Hi,

    Maybe you can try this.

    .arrowslidecontrolls_fullscreen {
    padding: 5px 15px;
    }

    #socket {
    padding: 10px 15px 40px 15px;
    }

    Hi,

    1. I use a laptop and what I see is http://www.clipular.com/c?5482215=-SCG6_Od69x4FWx3uwOA_goqfpQ&f=.png Please explain further with an image to illustrate what you are asking.

    3. If the watermark plugin is slowing things down, it sounds as if one of two things are taking place

    a) it adds the watermark on the fly, when page loads. Its a premium plugin, so you should ask the author.

    b) it adds the watermark and saves the image + watermark without optimizing the image. So a 150k optimized image can bloat into a 500k image. If that is the case, then you need to compare image sizes of how image size increases after watermark added to determine if this is the cause.

    This guy usually makes quality stuff http://profiles.wordpress.org/mywebsiteadvisor/ and he has 3 watermarks plugins (all free) on that page. I would first talk to the dev who created your premium plugin however.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Hi,

    1. What I mean is after removing the ‘left: 50px’ from the sidebar when I use a laptop and scroll all the way down I don’t get to see the copyright part of the sidebar (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7btbRiQph9WbnNzZkdxNU9Oblk/edit?usp=sharing) but when I use a bigger screen I can see that part (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7btbRiQph9WckVIcVJ4Zl95a3M/edit?usp=sharing). What should I change to be able to scroll down including the copyright part?

    3. The watermark plugin does it on the fly, I’m working with the author support to resolve the issue. Also I will look your suggestions.

    Thanks,

    Alejandro

    Hi,

    1.) I tried this solution and test it on 1024x768px resolution.

    .arrowslidecontrolls_fullscreen {
    padding: 5px 15px;
    }

    #socket {
    padding: 10px 15px 40px 15px;
    }

    Hi,

    Or you can try adding this css to the bottom of your /css/custom.css OR to Quick CSS located in Flashlight > Theme Options > Styling

    #top #socket {
    top: -55px;
    }
    #top .textwidget p {
    margin-bottom: 3em;
    }
