    Hi folks,

    I have been hard at work trying to figure out the intricacies of Enfold over the past ten days. I have two questions:

    1, How do I maintain the proportions of a featured image in a blog post The width is being maintained but the height is being crushed

    2, I tried to add a download link within a blog post. I opened a new BLOCK and chose FILE. Initially I tried to add a KML file, then a KMZ (from Google Earth) It would not accept this, however, it would accept a GPX file. All looked ok but when I downloaded the file from my site using a PC with Chrome browser I got the message Failed – Network Error. I tried this on a Mac and it wouldn’t even download.

    If anyone has any suggestions I would much appreciate it.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hey sanfairyanne,
    Sorry for the late reply, for your second question I believe you need the add the MIME type AddType application/vnd.google-earth.kml+xml .kml to your .htaccess file.
    Please try adding this and then clear your browser & server cache and test.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I figured out my first question. I’ve been working 15 hours a day for the past week learning how to use WP and the Enfold theme.

    Regarding your answer to question 2; I’ll pass this comment on to a friend because it doesn’t mean anything to me, I’m not a web developer.

    Hi,
    Glad to hear, what I mean is to try adding this to your .htaccess file:
    AddType application/vnd.google-earth.kml+xml .kml
    via FTP or SFTP.
    If your friend doesn’t understand please try posting a DropBox link to your .htaccess file so we can advise.
    Please note that some servers don’t rely on the .htaccess file and have other ways to achieve this, so if you get an error at first then try asking your webhost for the correct way to add this rule, for them.

    Best regards,
    Mike
