    Thanks Dude, I really appreciate that !

    I’ll post back if I have any success..

    1) Ok. Is this Avia Slider a Kriesi creation ? If so can you please point me in the direction of where I need to go to find / learn the answers I am looking for ? i.e. support for the Avia Slider !

    I mealy want to achieve something similar to how the slider is advertised here: http://aviathemes.com/aviaslider/

    Many Thanks,

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Although your solution does indeed work it isnt quite what I am looking for as what it does is adds 50% space between the first bullet and the far left, thus pushing the remaining bullets further right.

    What I am trying to achieve is to center the ‘bullets’ regardless of how many there are. I want to align them to the center, so for example, if there were 3 bullets the middle one would be at the 50% mark.

    My second request was to push the nav controls under the image in the portfolio pop up (not portfolio single page), this is something I have been unable to achieve currently.

    Any help appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    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 :-(

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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,

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

    Do you have an email address?

    Thanks

    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 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,

    in reply to: Portfolio itempage #65649

    lemuelbolano, I am also looking for a solution on how to do this.

    exactly as you said, “how to move the text from the single page portfolio ( after you hit “read more”) to be below the image.”

    if you do find a solution would you mind emailing me ? (Email address hidden if logged out)

    Many Thanks,

    HI Chris,

    Thank you for your help.

    I am having an issue with aligning the numeric controls to the center.

    I am sure these are the areas that need adjusting ? but I am unsure how to get it to align in the center properly :-(

    ‘div .numeric_controls{ left:50px; display:none;}

    div .arrow_controls{ right:10px; }’

    in slideshow.css ?

    Or am I heading down the wrong road here?

    Thanks again,

    in reply to: Logo as Text? #61922

    Thanks for the answers. Great stuff!

    So say for example I wanted to use the google font that comes with Angular “Questrial”

    What would i need to do to implement that?

    Sorry to come back, I am just a little unsure of how to properly implement this change.

    Many Thanks,

    in reply to: Changing individual portfolio item pages #63177

    HI Chris,

    Thanks for your help on this matter.

    I was just wondering if there would be a way of making these changes respect the responsive nature of the template?

    It is important to me that users on Netbooks, iPad etc are all having the same experience as users on a PC screen.

    Thanks in advance for any help with this matter.

    in reply to: Replace RSS with 'fancy' Search Icon ? #64858

    Hi Chris,

    Ok I understand that it might be too much work to add the fancy search.

    If we can add a search function to sit inside the social media container at the top (to the right of the RSS) and it respects the responsive nature of this theme then I would be more than happy with that.

    Thank you.

    Hi Chris, thanks for your reply.

    I have just given this a go. It appears that the controls stay on only after the user hovers over the image. This means that the user has no idea that there is more than one image to view until they roll the mouse over the image, something that might not be that clear on an iPad etc.

    Is there a way we can have the controls visible at all times, even before a hover-over?

    Also, I am just wondering about the ‘.numeric_controls{margin-left:400px;}’ Will this be responsive? I mean that if the site is viewed on a smaller screen or ipad etc, will the 400px margin be set in stone? If so is there a way to have the controls centered for all scenarios as this is a responsive theme and the reason I am upgrading my original ‘Display’ theme :)

    Thanks for all your help mate.

    This is perfect.

    Thank you for the help!

    in reply to: Lack of technical Support! #64916

    Chris Beard,

    Can i Just point out that my ‘nightmare’ is a long way from being over. I still have a number of questions that have been left unanswered for 2 weeks if you check the forum! Yes, I received a response to one or two of my recent posts but please dont consider this settled as its not.

    You will appreciate our concerns and frustrations as the support here is usually spot on.

    When Kriesi was dealing with the support requests for the Display theme I used a few years ago it was brilliant. Always speedy, amazingly friendly and professional and none of the attitude that seems to be getting banded around now.

    I’m not trying to be difficult here, I just find it rich when I see a comment like yours posted recently and I still have numerous questions left without so much as an acknowledgement.

    I hope you find the time to look over them soon.

    Thanks,

    in reply to: whole Portfolio instead of related entries #62593

    Hello.

    Sure, http://www.benrobins.com/v02/ The plan is to change to Angular properly once I have made the necessary changes / tweaks to it.

    For me, I would just like to change the title of ‘Related Entries’ to ‘Recent Projects’ if possible.

    Many Thanks,

    in reply to: Logo as Text? #61920

    Hi,

    Thanks for your response. Yes I have used the advanced search option, it is a very useful tool and I find a lot of answers through it.

    I guess I am a frequent requester, but until I can make the desired tweaks to the site I am unable to put mine or my clients name to it. It has to be right, I am sure you understand this. Until then, this is where I will come for support :)

    It is all very nit picky, but as I work in a visual based industry it is justified.

    Most tweaks / changes are only simple things anyway, just not for me as I am no developer.

    Thank you for all your help so far.

    in reply to: Changing individual portfolio item pages #63175

    Sure,

    Check out two posts up.

    ___

    I would like to arrange / design the portfolio content and not just slap it under the portfolio image in one column on the right.

    For me, it would be perfect to arrange it as I have done on my own site (a modified ‘Design’ theme) See here: http://www.benrobins.com/hsbc-security/

    You can see how the ‘Information’ and ‘Credits’ bit below the main image is laid out. This is what I would like to achieve with Angular. This would be perfect !

    I hope you can help :-)

    —-=

    The goal is to have full width image / video and information below it using the full space rather than just one column.

    Maybe the Title and Meta Info on the left and the text content on the right?

    My Anugular site is here (http://www.benrobins.com/v02/)

    Thank you
