    Hi,

    Cleaning up my ‘old mess’…

    Meanwhile I understand the even for youtube-nocookies embeds cookies are being used :-p. So when using You Tube video’s you’ll anyway have to include them in the cookie settings to be loaded only after visitor’s consent (at least for The Netherlands).

    So we have to live with it. Or choose Vimeo like Guenni007 is more or less suggesting ;-)

    Hi,

    Just cleaning up my ‘mess’. I noticed this error message occurred on various sites but only once after a specific WP update (WP 5.2 in fact). Thereafter it didn’t occur anymore.

    in reply to: How to set up a page like your demo Minimal Photography #1143355

    Hi Rikard,

    Thanks!

    If I understand correctly you are using here a so-called “Perfect Manual Masonry: Manually control the height and width of entries by adding either a “landscape” or “portrait” tag when creating the entry. Elements with no such tag use a fixed default size, elements with both tags will display extra large”. Is that correct?

    Is it possible to create/achieve the same, but not having to create/use portfolio items but just images with light box when you click on an image?

    Best regards,
    Monique

    Hi Rikard,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I added the debug mode to my child’s functions.php and can see the [code] field under the Advanced Layout Builder as well as an extra field Enfold Shortcode Parser with three options.

    Can you please send me the corresponding shortcode?

    Best regards,

    in reply to: WordPress sends message about technical problem with Enfold #1136705

    Hi Mike,

    See your reply #1106884. It took me a while to reply.

    I just updated my site to the latest versions (WP 5.2.3, Enfold 4.6.1). I also deleted the ‘issue’ with the “class-breadcrumb.php” in my child theme. Not that this was ‘bothering’ anything, but it was not applicable anymore.

    My site just works fine. So there are no functional problems whatsoever. Not as far as I can see anyway.

    However, after updating I again got an email message from ‘WordPress’ saying that my site has a technical problem:

    Foutdetails
    ===========
    Een fout van het type E_COMPILE_ERROR werd veroorzaakt op regelnummer 146 van het bestand /home/u19338p24840/domains/arti-sign.nl/public_html/wp-content/themes/enfold/functions.php. Foutmelding: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘includes/helper-privacy.php’ (include_path=’.:/opt/alt/php73/usr/share/pear’)

    I am not sure if there is really a problem. But these emails are quite annoying.

    Please advise.

    Hi Ismael,

    My client’s site was hacked and caused Enfold files to be corrupted. After a big clean and re-installation of WordPress and Enfold, this issue as well as the issue in topic #1125899 were solved.

    Sorry to have bothered you and thanks for your help.

    Can you please flag this topic as solved?

    Hi Sigmund,

    I assume with ‘landing page’ you mean the ‘home page’ of the site? Or in other words, the page which is set in theme options as frontpage? No, that page has no content section with 100% height.

    There is one page (a sort of Work in Progress page) which we use when the site needs major maintenance and which has a content section with 100% height. But that page is only used when necessary and normally has concept status (= now). Further I seriously hope that this doesn’t have an influence on the other (published) pages?

    Best regards,
    Monique

    Hi Ismael,

    Pagination
    I’d like to remind you that there are pages with only a few items, Also on these pages it doesn’t work properly. See (1) below.

    I just tried to change one of the pages to pagination with 9 items per page (that should be ok, or?). That doesn’t solve the issue. See (2) below.

    Optimizing images
    My client optimizes all images before she loads them in WordPress. She reduces them in size and quality so that each image stays under max. approx. 100-150KB. Most of the time she is far under.

    What happens when she loads the images in WordPress is that Enfold creates 17 different images for each original images. Most of the images Enfold creates are far bigger than the ones my client uploads. I don’t understand that. See two examples below (3).

    This can’t be right, can it?

    Best regards,
    Monique

    Thanks you for your reply Ismael!

    I understand what you’re saying. The strange thing is that this also happens with pages that only have a few portfolio items. Will pagination in those cases help? Will it help that much if we would set pagination to 10 items when the page only has three or four items?

    Best regards,
    Monique

    Hi Günter,

    – The folder config-wpml inside the folder enfold has the same permissions (0755) as all other folders. The files inside this folder have the same permissions (0644) as files in other folders.
    – I am not using (a) cashing (plugin).
    – I am always using ftp. I have downloaded the latest version of Enfold now various times to update various website and I have the same problem/message for all websites.
    – I believe I have a new problem which tmo is related to this issue. On one site I want to deactivate Polylang plugin. before updating WP/Enfold/plugins I had a HTTP 550 error. Now I am getting a message “The site is experiencing technical problems. Check the admin e-mail inbox of your website for instructions.” [translated from Dutch]. I haven’t received an e-mail for instructions.

    I suppose it is not the best way (nor most favorable way) if I have to create extra code in functions.php of the parent theme for each website… (maybe over and over again?).

    Please advise.

    Best regards,
    Monique

    in reply to: EU-Cookie-Law guideline compliancy #1103914

    Maybe it is worthwhile trying the following plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/gdpr-cookie-compliance/.

    I am going to test it in the next few weeks.

    @cg: I understand that different countries explain ‘the rules’ in a different way :-(

    in reply to: EU-Cookie-Law guideline compliancy #1102976

    Just for all clarity: I didn’t say that Enfold was not compliant. Enfold as such does not load any (personal) cookies.

    When you want to comply with the law and you are using (not anonymized) personal statistical and marketing cookies, you would need to show a cookie banner and give visitors the option to agree (or disagree) with these (not anonymized) personal statistical and marketing cookies BEFORE the scripts are being loaded. Since when the scripts are being loaded before consent, the cookies already have been placed.

    As far as I understand Enfold does not offer this option (loading of scripts only after consent). I asked Enfold support (here above) to confirm this but so far no reply to that.

    There are ways to fully comply with the law by using other systems (ie. plugins) but as far as my investigations go, they will cost you money. For some companies that won’t be an issue, but for several of my clients (ie. foundations) this is an issue though.

    I am curious to know if #cg can give advise on how he uses the theme and wordpress to fully comply with the law!

    Hi Günter,

    Re Can you please check if the file enfold/config-wpml/config.php exists?
    I checked it and the file is there.

    Re If you do not need WPML you can remove enfold\functions.php line 29
    For both mentioned sites we do not need WPML.

    What code can I use in the child theme’s functions.php to remove WPML? I never change core files because the changes will get lost in the next update.

    Thanks & have a nice day,
    Monique

    in reply to: EU-Cookie-Law guideline compliancy #1101346

    Hi,

    Sorry to interrupt. As far as I know, Enfold’s cookie banner is not yet 100% compliant.The official rule is that not anonymized statistical and marketing cookies may only be loaded after prior consent by the website visitor. I believe this is not the case with Enfold. Can you agree with this Rikard?

    That having said, there seem not to be many options yet (for WP websites) to fully comply with the law, apart from programming yourself… In my search I noticed that all (free) plugin builders that offer a cookie banner warn that they cannot guarantee that your site is GDPR-proof when you use their plugin. Most of these offer a paid version as well, but several of my clients (such as charity foundations) cannot spend extra money again and again on stuff they didn’t ask for…

    The best option (I believe) I found so far is Cookiebot. First you can do a free test which cookies your website in fact uses. Than they offer several plans to comply with the law, depending on the size of your site. They offer a small free version, but I haven’t tried it yet.

    Hope this is helpful for you!

    Best regards,

    Hi Rikard,

    I just updated another site (see link below) and got exactly the same warning email from WordPress. This time I immediately checked the PHP vversion and it is 7.1.28.

    Please advise what to do.

    Best regards,
    Monique

    Hi Rikard,

    Thanks for your reply.

    The site was on 7.0. I just updated it to 7.3 and hope the issue is solved. In the email from WordPress they state that if the issue persists after 1 day, they would send another email. So let’s wait for a day to see if another email comes in or not :-)

    Best regards,

    in reply to: Top bar phone-info easy changeable by client #1100710

    Hi there,

    We’ve found a work around to place the ‘hero’ text in the extra header widget of the site.

    Please can you close this topic?

    Thanks for your help & best regards,
    Monique

    in reply to: Top bar phone-info easy changeable by client #1074472

    Hi Rikard,

    Hmmm… I expect in that way the ‘hero’ text will be in the header and not in the top bar?If that is the case, the left top bar will be empty and the header will be overcrowded… Of course you can style anything, with negative top margins and so, but it is a lot of hassle and most probably you will not get a good result on all different devices…

    Just an idea: is there perhaps a way to retrieve the general WordPress subtitle of the site (which is in WordPress General Settings) and to place this in the top bar? In that way my client will be able to change their text whenever they wish.

    Or a notification bar or something alike?

    Best regards,
    Monique

    in reply to: Top bar phone-info easy changeable by client #1072555

    Hi Rikard,

    Thanks for your reply.

    This site is already going to have an extra widget area for another purpose. It won’t be possible to add the ‘hero’ text there as well. Further my client wants the hero text in the left top bar.

    Any more ideas?

    Best regards,
    Monique

    in reply to: Top bar phone-info easy changeable by client #1071915

    Thanks for your reply @digitalessence.

    Unfortunately I am not a PHP programmer and I don’t understand how I can get this to work. It looks too complicated for me. When I try to understand a little bit what this is about, I get the impression that there should be a PHP file somewhere (functions.php?) in which my client can make changes to change the ‘hero’ text on their site. Normally such a file should be uploaded by ftp. My client doesn’t have these options available. There should be something in WordPress (outside the theme options) where they can change this text as often as they want.

    Hi guys,

    Any news on this please?

    Thanks & best regards,

    in reply to: MailChimp privacy policy message placed between fields #1058121

    Hi Victoria,

    Sorry for my late reply. You know, Xmas and so…

    That looks great, however works only on the home page. Not on the other pages where we’ve used this form, ie. at https://vick.nl/agenda/ and https://vick.nl/laatste-nieuws/.

    Is there perhaps an option to dedicate your code to the content section in all pages? Than we would only have to take into account that we use the same style of MC form in the content on each page we want to publish it.

    Thanks & regards,
    Monique
