    Hello support team:)

    First of all – congratulations for creating that beautiful theme and such a great support forum. I’ve set the theme (almost;) in the way I need just looking through the posts. As it occurs many users meet the same “problems” ;)

    However there’re still some things that I don’t know how to set :/

    I’ll try to explain it here – maybe you can advise something (I’m new to wordpress so I’ll appreciate the simpliest solutions ;))) or at least deatailed ones ;)

    1. I don’t really need RSS icon and I found a way how to remove it in one of the posts ( (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -icon) – however I’d like to replace it with a Flickr icon (I know Kresti uses iconsweets2 but I’m not sure if it includes a Flickr icon – if not I’ll find another one).

    Could you please send me the code erasing RSS icon and replacing it with Flickr icon and at the same time making all the social media icons open in the new tab/window?

    Where should I place the Flickr icon and url of my flickr account?

    2. I’m using 3 collumn gallery for my portfolio entries. I’d like the lightbox to be black instead of white – how to set it up? Do I have to install a plugin or does it only need some changes in the code?

    I’d still like the titles and descriptions to be visible and with no image-enlargment-icon (this one I’ve already set with the Quick CSS code I’ve found)

    3. I’d also like to get rid of the lightning sign which appears on my portfolio-item entries below 3 collumn galleries. Help :)

    4. Last but not least – I’ve read all the posts concerning galleries and haven’t really found an answer. Maybe it’s really simple or maybe it just can’t be done ;)

    The thing is when I upload some portrait photos to 3 collumn gallery the miniatures always show the middle of the picture. I’d like to be able to decide which part of the portrait picture is visible on the miniature. I don’t want to change the size nor the shape of the miniatures.

    I also don’t want to change anything about vertical photos, because their miniatures are just fine :)

    Thanks in advance for all the help




    Hi Kuba,

    1) You can replace the RSS icon in the sidebar.php file in the theme files. Look for:

    echo "<li class='rss'><a href='".avia_get_option('feedburner',get_bloginfo('rss2_url'))."'>RSS</a></li>";

    Remove this line and replace it with:

    echo "<li class='rss'><a href='' target='_blank'>Flickr</a></li>";

    Then just replace the RSS icon in the skin folder you are using in themes images folder.

    In the same sidebar.php file just below the rss line you should see:

    if($facebook = avia_get_option('facebook')) echo "<li class='facebook'><a href='".$facebook."'>Facebook</a></li>";
    if($twitter = avia_get_option('twitter')) echo "<li class='twitter'><a href='".$twitter."'>Twitter</a></li>";

    replace them with:

    if($facebook = avia_get_option('facebook')) echo "<li class='facebook'><a href='".$facebook."' target='_blank'>Facebook</a></li>";
    if($twitter = avia_get_option('twitter')) echo "<li class='twitter'><a href='".$twitter."' target='_blank'>Twitter</a></li>";

    to make them open in new windows.

    2) In the theme files, open js>prettyPhoto>js>jquery.prettyPhoto.js. Look for:


    You can switch it to the dark_rounded theme which may be closer to what you want. The available themes are int he images>prettyPhoto folder in the prettyPhoto parent folder. IE:


    Then save the file back on the server.

    3)Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    #top .post-title.big_title {
    background: transparent;

    4) Unfortunately their is no way to decided which section of a photo is cropped for the thumbnail. WordPress doesn’t currently offer an option to do this.

    The only way I know of to do it, is to go into your image files via FTP and manually replace the thumbnail that gets created automatically after you have set up a portfolio item. Its a significant extra step but its the only way to get absolute control of thumbnail images.
