I have noticed that the number of replies to technical support issues has gone down quite a bit in the forums from when I started using Spacious Pro and monitoring the forums. I believe this is a relatively new product and company, so my guess is that they have been overwhelmed by the number of requests as their themes have gained in popularity.
When I visited the ethnic.utah.edu website I can see what I *think* is the slider section and it’s moving photos across the top of the page. Did you finally get it to work? Or maybe your browser has cached the page or something so that you’re not seeing it?
NOTE: Some of the images are a little low resolution for the size of the slider display. For example, #1, https://ethnic.utah.edu/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/dr-ronald-g-coleman1.jpg, is only 294×100 in size, but the slider display area is much larger than that for me on my computer LCD screen, so he’s stretched out and it doesn’t look very good (fuzzy and pixelated).
I haven’t enabled the slider yet, but intend to soon as I build up more content and images, so I’m watching your thread with interest. I hope the problem, if you’re still experiencing it, gets resolved soon.
So far just https://guysongames.com, but I have a couple of projects that I’ll be implementing it on soon. 🙂
I’m a newbie to WordPress myself, but I think you need a plugin for tables unless you handmake them in HTML. I’m using TablePress and it’s been good so far. You can see a table I made to list my show equipment at https://guysongames.com/about/resources-technology-and-equipment/.May 16, 2014 at 5:15 pm in reply to: How to open a "call to action" widget's URL in a new tab? #3626
Corrections are welcome, but I do not believe the mailto: link type is capable of opening in a ‘new window’ as you describe. It’s not a URL in the sense that you’re pulling up a webpage, but instead you’re telling the computer to take an action that opens up an new email window such as in Outlook or other email programs. It will not open a web browser window by itself, unless maybe Gmail is activated upon the call. I think I have seen that when I click mailto within Chrome, but that’s very specific to the Chrome browser and it shouldn’t be counted upon to work in other browser types (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.).
Now, if you have an email contact webpage (such as on https://guysongames.com/contact/) that you want to direct the user to, I’m sure you can create a link to that URL with a target that will open it up in a new window, but “mailto:” is used to open up a mail client from my experience.
Hope that helps, and that I’m right. 🙂
OK, I found and made the change in the file, but I haven’t been able to test it because I’m getting a “Denied” message when I try to copy it over to my server. I’m sure that’s because I used my host’s software manager to install my edition of WordPress and the theme, so it probably isn’t giving my user permissions. I’ll work with them on it.
Please consider adding that as an optional setup choice.
I think in this case the “Podcast” is coming from the Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin that I am using. I am not the most knowledgeable on all of this yet, but that’s what I am using to manage my podcast RSS feed data. I *think* it’s producing a custom post type for the podcast pages as well. They seem to be created a part from the normal ‘Page’ or Post functionality, so they seem to have their own rules a little bit (for example, needing that custom CSS you gave me the other day so their page title text looked and acted the same as the new Post’s titles). It’s not a Category. In fact, on the Podcast pages I create “Series” which appears to be the same idea as Categories, except that it’s a “series” in an audio program, like lumping all of the audio shows into one common theme or idea.
Does that help explain it? Based on your question I suspect that it will take custom coding. It probably isn’t that bad if I can find the file that it exists in. It could be as easy as changing the word “Archives” to “Podcasts”. I’ll do a search for it.
I’d be interested in that transition type as well (although not rapid fire as Heidi is requesting), so please consider dissolve for a future feature list.
Perfect – resolved! Thanks again.
So to understand the current situation, I cannot ‘hide’ a post that’s been there for say, a year, from the home page? It will linger for all eternity (or until the Sun supernovas)? Or I assume I can pick the ‘Static’ option for homepage and never see any of my posts.
Thank you for the work around. That worked by the way.
Duh, so try this for YOUR link… 🙂
Sanjip may have a different (and no doubt better answer), but I used this link style which opens up the Skype client that’s on my PC:
Try that and see if it works for you.
I checked it on an iPad 2 and iPhone 4S with Chrome and both showed the video fine after an initial black box queue up period of a few seconds. FYI.
Beautiful! Exactly what I wanted.
OK, I might have found at least a cause and/or a workaround. I added a 3rd Page, the link for which appears in the header now – “Equipment” – and all of the sudden the magnifying glass shows up. If I had to guess I’d say that the added page extended the box the Search and the page links are in just far enough so that the icon can appear. Does that sound reasonable? That would explain why the demo page shows up fine since you have that many pages listed. I didn’t shut off any of the plugins yet.
Thank you Sanjip! Worked great on my website and gives it a very polished look. https://guysongames.com/
