Important:
It's critical to install/update required plugins when you update themes.

Once you install and activate an updated theme, you are presented with a message similar to this (just like when you first installed the theme):

To ensure the correct work of your theme, it's critical to click the "Begin" links and install/update the plugins. If you have dismissed the message, you can get to the required/recommended plugins list by going to:

yoursite.com/wp-admin/themes.php?page=tgmpa-install-plugins

If you are wondering why functionality is contained in plugins created by the same author who created the theme, please note that this is a ThemeForest requirement. This ensures that when you change a theme you don’t lose your data. In a word, themes = looks, plugins = functionality.

Important:
If you have updated to WordPress 5, please make sure to update your theme.

If you are using a version of a theme that was published before the release of WordPress 5, please note that it does not support WordPress 5, and needs to be updated. Basically, the version of the theme you are using was created when WordPress 5 did not exist, so the theme could not be tested and made compatible with it.

To use WordPress 5, please be sure to be running:
Storyteller 1.4 or newer
Bild 1.2 or newer
Essentialist 1.2 or newer
Stills 1.2 or newer
Narrator 1.2 or newer

To find out which version of a theme you are using, please go to Admin Panel > Appearance > Themes. Click the theme image, and see the version number near the theme name.

To update a theme, please go to your ThemeForest Downloads page and obtain the latest version. Then install it in the regular WordPress fashion (deactivate and remove the old theme, install the new one, install/update the required plugins).

    Sorry, my bad. Please use this:

    <div class="juan-custom-author-box">Post by: <a href="<?php echo get_author_posts_url(get_the_author_meta('ID')); ?>"><?php the_author(); ?></a></div>

    This should display all the posts by a certain author. There is not a template for an author in this theme per se.

    Hi Didie,

    I have just tried to reproduce this.

    I am using Narrator 1.3.4 (the one currently available on ThemeForest).

    I am adding a YouTube video via the Gutenberg’s ‘Embed’ block like this — please see screenshot.

    And the result I am getting on the front end is this — please see screenshot.

    There was a glitch in the previous version of the theme that affected the embed captions. Please make sure you are using version 1.3.4, and if the issue still persists please clear your caches.

    Hi Juan,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    You can use the following code to display the author in the archive pages (in single ones as well). This will work without any additional plugins — just native WordPress functionality:

    <div class="juan-custom-author-box">Post by: <a href="<?php get_the_author_link(); ?>"><?php the_author(); ?></a></div>

    The template files to add it to depend on the layout you use. Basically, they are:
    content-big_latest.php
    content-grid_2_cols.php
    content-grid_3_cols.php
    content-masonry.php

    Then you can use some CSS to style this block with:

    .juan-custom-author-box {
    
    }

    ___

    I have tried this plugin you mentioned and from what I can see, it is not adding the names of the authors to the archive pages even in the standard WP theme (I have tried with Twentynineteen). Regardless of whether I use the argument kindly suggested by Ander or not. I have tried using add_action() and also executing the shortcode they offer via do_shortcode().

    As this is not working with the standard WP theme, I believe the issue is on the plugin side.

    Anyway, I hope the snippet I have suggested works out for you.

    Hi Celia,

    WordPress creates the default thumbnails: 150×150, 300×300 1024×1024. Unless these have been changed in Settings>Media.

    The Narrator theme creates the following thumbnails:
    781×584, 510×382, 680×680 soft-cropped, 800×800, 1200×900, 1920×1920 soft-cropped.

    If you have other sizes, that means you have changed the above ones. For instance, with that plugin that you used for overriding the sizes.

    Celia,

    A way to speed up your images is to start using Cloudflare. Their free plan includes CDN for static assets like images. So your pictures will start loading from a location closest to the user. This won’t be a dramatic difference, however, it will improve the performance.

    If you start using Cloudflare, make sure to install their WP plugin as well — not to have to manually purge the cache every time you update your content.

    Hello,

    An updated version of Narrator with working Instagram feed has been out on ThemeForest for a while. Please go to your Downloads section on ThemeForest and download the latest version. It has integration with a third-party plugin that will display your feed just as in the demo.

    Please see the following section in the User Guide for detailed instructions: Instagram Feed Setup.

    A little context:
    Facebook (who own Instagram) have changed Instagram API mid-summer 2020 and they made the old tokens that you may have acquired obsolete. Also, due to COVID-19, Facebook has paused developer verification which is needed to start accessing Instagram data after the API change. Until Facebook resumes developer verification, Mauer Themes has switched to a third-party plugin for displaying the Instagram feed.

    Please mind that this theme does not claim to have WooCommerce support, so additional styling may be needed.

    .entry-full.type-product .entry-thumb {display:none;}

    Paul
    Keymaster

    Hello Michael,

    Please excuse the late reply.

    The menu ‘hamburger’ being shifted to the left on mobile has been fixed in the latest release of the theme that you can download from your ThemeForest account.

    And as for the title being broken into two lines, actually this is by design. Otherwise the title would start overlapping the ‘hamburger’ menu. However, what you can do is play around with CSS to fix this. Your website is behind a password. But I assume the four words are “United Fan Culture Archive”.

    You could use the following CSS to make the text smaller and thus keep it on one line. Please mind, that in some narrower resolutions the text will still be broken into two lines.

    @media (max-width: 570px) {
    	.site-logo.mauer-logo-mobile a h1 {
    		font-size: 1.4rem;
    		position: relative;
    		bottom: 0.4rem;
    	}
    }

    You can add the above CSS code to your website by going to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Customize’ > ‘Additional CSS’. There please just paste the code and click ‘Publish’.

    Celia, please see my reply in this thread: https://mauer.co/topic/loading-speed-image-size

    In a word, you have overridden the thumbnail sizes with a third-party plugin and started showing full-size images where thumbnails should be used. That led to pages as heavy as 23 Megabytes. Please see the solution in the linked thread.

    You do not need to mess with the thumb sizes yourself. The theme does this for you. It creates a small image for the respective thumbnail and creates a big image for showing in the lightbox. But when you override this, you break things and start showing gigantic images all over the place. That is why a page like this one starts weighing 23 Megabytes. And surely 23 Megabytes is a lot of data to load! But if you do the theme do its thing and don’t override it, the page will be waaaaaay smaller. For instance, this page is 2 Megabytes. Just because it does not meddle with the theme’s default behaviour.

    Autoptimize is a poor patch for this. The browser will still have to load those 23 Megabytes. I would not advise to use it.

    Anyway, please do what I described in the previous comment. And after you do that you will need to recreate the galleries.

    Celia,

    For whatever reason, you have installed a plugin called “Simple Image Sizes” and you have overridden the image sizes that are introduced by the theme and you have made them really big. 2800 by 2800.

    Now your thumbnails are gigantic and they slow down the page.

    That is why regenerating the thumbnails did not help. Because you had the sizes overridden.

    Please remove the “Simple Image Sizes” and regenerate the thumbnails the way I described above.

    Hi Celia,

    That is how the browser takes care of the long words that do not fit. For instance, here is how this word looks in the default WordPress theme developed by WordPress themselves:

    What I suggest you do is either rename the page so it does not have a 21-word long title (I don’t speak German, but maybe it can be something like ‘protection of data’ instead of ‘dataprotection’). Or you can add the following CSS to shrink the title in this particular page when the screen is narrow:

    @media (max-width: 400px) {
    	.entry-full.post-1921 h1.entry-title {
    		font-size: 3.4rem;
    	}
    }

    You can add this CSS code the same way you added the EU Cookie Law Widget CSS I have provided.

    Hello,

    As Evgeni has kindly mentioned, Instagram has changed its API (the rules under which other developers can access their data). We are currently working on bringing the new API into the themes and hope to ship the updates compatible with the new API very soon. However, this will require a review from Facebook (who own Instagram), so I can not tell when exactly these updates will be shipped, because I don’t know how long it will take Facebook to review the app and confirm fair use of the API.

    Please stay tuned for the theme updates. You should receive an email once an update is available on ThemeForest.

    Paul

    P.S.
    And as for uploading 2800 x 1867 images, yes this is totally fine. The demo uses images that are 3750 by the bigger size, and it works fast. Because those images are resized by WordPress into several sizes (“thumbnails”). The issue you have is not the size of the images you upload, it is that you don’t have the thumbnails generated — as you first uploaded images and then changed the theme. Again, this is not something Narrator-specific and is true for almost any theme. So please regenerate the thumbnails as described above.

    in reply to: Loading speed/image size #4008
    Paul
    Keymaster

    Celia,

    This theme creates special versions of the images you upload to show them in respective areas. In fact, almost all WordPress themes do this. This is done to reduce the size of the pages, which, in turn, improves the speed of the website. After you switch theme, you need to regenerate those images “thumbnails”, or otherwise your website will be serving full-size images where it is not necessary.

    My guess is that you have uploaded these images before switching to the Narrator theme. This is not a theme specific issue, and regardless of the theme you use, after switching you need to regenerate thumbnails.

    So please install and activate this plugin. Then go to “Tools” > “Regenerate Thumbnails”, click “Regenerate Thumbnails For All XX Attachments” and wait for the process to finish.

    Then you might need to clear your browser cache to see the results.

    }
    #eu-cookie-law {
      font-size: 13px!important;
    }

    You can add the above CSS code to your website by going to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Customize’ > ‘Additional CSS’. There please just paste the code and click ‘Publish’.

    Hi Didie,

    Each time you update the theme, the custom code changes you made to it will be lost.

    There are ways to prevent this from happening. If you add CSS the way I proposed above (‘Appearance’ > ‘Customize’ > ‘Additional CSS’) it will stay intact during theme updates. But that ony concerns CSS.

    However, the changes laid out above are not only CSS, but also HTML and PHP. So basically you need to include this line every time you update the theme:

    if (is_category()) {echo ‘

    ‘ . category_description() . ‘

    ‘;}

    If you want to keep intact all the changes (not only CSS) during theme updates, you need to customize your theme by creating a child theme (as I mentioned in the original reply in this thread that provided the code customisations).

    Here is what is h1 in this theme:

    1. Text logo on front page (not on archive pages).
    2. Archive titles (like “Category: architecture” at the top of this page).
    3. Post titles on single post pages.

    Nothing more is an h1 as of Narrator 1.3.2.

    Hi Joy,

    With a widget, you can not have the Instagram images displayed across the page. They can only occupy the space of the widget and can not go outside.

    You could use the Instagram functionality of the theme to have your posts displayed across the page (instead of using a third-party plugin). And my reply above was applicable to this solution. That would look like so:

    However, Instagram has just changed its API on June the 1st, and the display of Instagram posts is not working in the theme anymore. I’m sorting this out now and will issue a theme update soon that will fix this.

    So please check your email for notifications on the theme update, then download and updated version of the theme, follow the user guide and set up the Instagram reel at the bottom of the page.

    Hi,

    If you are talking about Projects (not blog posts): they do not display featured images at the top of the projects themselves. So you can just start with any block (e.g. a video), not necessarily an image.

    And if you are talking about the blog posts, you can hide the featured image with this line of CSS and as with projects, start with any block you like, be it video or anything else. .single-post .entry-full .entry-thumb {display: none;}

    As for the featured images in post grids (not in single views), you can only use images there.

    B4s, Silvia,

    Please excuse the late reply.

    Yes, B4s is right: when updating the theme you also need to update the bundled plugins. This is said at the top of the support page (see the yellow messages), as well as in the How to Update page that is linked to from the theme archive.

    As for Gutenberg, it is the default editor for WP versions starting from 5.0, so there are no special actions required to activate it. It is not a separate plugin, but rather a part of the WP core.

    I see what you mean about images not appearing in the preview. I’ll fix it in the next theme update.

    Hi Silvia,

    The reply above is a bit outdated. You can now manually organize images and decide which ones will stand in one row next to each other, and which ones will stand one per row. For instance, this project has been assembled manually, and I was controlling each image width — by using or not using the #half tag.

    In a word, when you want to make two images stand side by side, you just write a #half tag in their captions (the tag itself does not appear on the front-end). You can find a more elaborate explanation with examples in this page: Galleries Showcase.

    As for the old projects, as WordPress 5 has been a major change in the whole engine, the only way is to recreate your project galleries.

    The major functions of Jetpack used in this theme are lazy image loading and social sharing. I’ll be posting an update to the theme this month and will make sure to eliminate any possible reasons for Jetpack crashing in the theme.

    Hello Celia,

    I believe you are seeing the comment form on your computer and not seeing it on your phone because you are logged in to the admin panel on your computer. This is how WordPress itself works and is not something that has been introduced by the theme.

    If you want to hide this form, you need to disable comments on your website.

    For new articles, this can be done by going to ‘Settings’ > ‘Discussion’ > unchecking ‘Allow people to post comments on new articles’.

    For the existing articles, you need to start editing each article and uncheck the ‘Allow Comments’ checkbox in the ‘Discussion’ section in the right sidebar.

    As for the ‘g’, can you please post a link to this article so I could take a look?

    Hi Simon,

    This is caused by Jetpack plugin having changed the event it dispatches to start lazy loading images, which in turn is used by the theme to trigger lazy loading of newly added images. I’ll take care of this in the next theme update, which is scheduled to happen this month.

    In the meantime, you can drop me your WP Admin credentials to pavel@mauer.co, and I’ll apply a quick fix. Please message me in this thread after you send the credentials.

    Hello Guillaume,

    I am actually not able to reproduce this error in any browser.

    Things usually look like that when the images can not be found. The first thing I would check in such a situation is whether the browser console shows errors for image files. And whether these images could be accessed directly at their addresses.

    Sometimes turning on the Jetpack images CDN can cause this. The theme options of the Stills theme even provide a special checkbox for keeping this module off. It’s called ‘Keep Jetpack Image CDN disabled’ and I advise to keep it checked.

    Hi Ed,

    in reply to: Make a gallery look like homepage demo #3887
    Paul
    Keymaster

    Hello, Ed.

    This theme is intended for project-based representation of works. So the portfolio layout (and its variations) that you see on the front page can only lead to projects, not to individual images.

    What you can do to achieve what you described is to use the front-end code of the front page and lay a different back-end below it. For instance, the ACF Pro plugin that comes bundled with the theme offers a gallery field.

    So you could create a new page layout, assign an ACF gallery and an ACF text field to it (for the welcome text). And then use the markup that’s being generated for the front page and create the markup for your new page template from it.

    This customisation would require quite an amount of coding (not covered by support according to ThemeForest rules). In my experience, good places to contract a coder for WP-related work are Toptal and Codeable.

    in reply to: Removing 2100px size limit on photos #3874
    Paul
    Keymaster

    Hi Jakub,

    Not an easy one here. But I have a solution finally.

    The best way to implement this customisation is to create a child theme. Or you can just make these changes each time after you update a theme.

    First, please go to js/general.js in the theme folder and add the following code just before the $(document).ready(function() { call:

    function customJakubPswpTargetSubstitute() {
    	$('.mauer-stills-gallery-pswp-big-img-link').each(function(i,el){
    		var imgFullUrl = $(this).find('img.mauer-stills-gallery-pswp-img').data('imgFullUrl');
    		$(this).attr('href', imgFullUrl);
    	});
    }

    Then add the following line of code at the end of the $(window).load(function(){ block.

    customJakubPswpTargetSubstitute();

    So the result should look like this: see screenshot. The added code is highlighted.

    Then to make this script be updated in your and your users’ browser cache please go to style.css in the theme folder and change the theme version in the header. Currently, it is 1.3.3. Change it to, let’s say, 1.3.3j.

    And finally, to future proof the solution you may want to take care of WP having introduced a limit on max image dimensions starting from WP version 5.3. See “Introducing handling of big images in WordPress 5.3” for details.

    To take care of this, please go to the functions.php file in the theme folder and add the following line:
    add_filter( 'big_image_size_threshold', '__return_false' );

    Sorry for the late reply. It’s not a trivial customization. Also, please mind that customizations are not part of the support according to ThemeForest rules.

    Kind regards,
    Paul

    Hello Patrick,

    There are many ways to go about this. The simplest is to use a template file that is relevant to all the views of the website. This is header.php. This way you won’t have to make changes to more than one file.

    The place to insert the code in header.php would be the very end. Be sure to wrap your code like this:

    <div class="container-fluid">
    	Your code goes here
    </div>

    Just in case: please see screenshot.

    This will place the breadcrumbs under the header on all pages of the website. Then you can style these to your liking.

    Hi Didie,

    Yes, this is possible. However, there’s no way to do it properly with only CSS, you’d need to edit a bit of JS as well.

    It’s best to perform this in a child theme. Or you can just redo these changes after updating the theme.

    So, what you need to do is go to js/general.js file in the theme folder. And replace this line:

    $('.entry-full .mauer-narrator-pswp-gallery, .entry-full .mauer-narrator-wp-embed-wrapper').each(function(){

    with this one:

    $('.entry-full .mauer-narrator-pswp-gallery, .entry-full .mauer-narrator-wp-embed-wrapper, .entry-full .wp-block-image').each(function(){

    And this line:

    var sideMargin = (targetElement.width() - $('.gallery-width-reference').width()) / 4;

    with this one:

    var sideMargin = (targetElement.width() - $('.gallery-width-reference').width()) / 2;

    The end result should look like this: see screenshot.

    After that, please add the following CSS:

    .entry-full .wp-block-image {
    	max-width: none;
    }
    
    .entry-content .wp-block-image img {
    	width: 100%;
    }

    Hello Celia,

    Yes, this order can be changed. In fact, the Narrator theme does not interfere with the default WordPress way of ordering the categories. So you would solve this the same way as you would with any other theme.

    For instance, you can use this free plugin available in the WordPress repository:
    Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order

    I’ve just run a quick test of it, and it is working perfectly with Narrator.

    Hi Celia,

    If you’d like it to happen on a particular post, please use the following code instead of the one I posted above:

    .entry-full.post-7 blockquote, .entry-full.post-7 .wp-block-quote:not(.is-large):not(.is-style-large) {font-size: 2.2rem;}

    And replace 7 with the id of the post you’d like it to happen for. Please mind there are two places to replace 7. So for instance, if you’d like to target the quotes on the post with id 99, the code would look like this:

    .entry-full.post-99 blockquote, .entry-full.post-99 .wp-block-quote:not(.is-large):not(.is-style-large) {font-size: 2.2rem;}

    Hello ME,

    If you’d like the quote to look the same as in the demo, you need to make sure to use the ‘Blockquote’ Gutenberg block. Not ‘Pullquote’ or any other entity.

    And to make the text in the quote (‘Blockquote’) smaller, you can add the following CSS customization:

    blockquote, .wp-block-quote:not(.is-large):not(.is-style-large) {font-size: 2.2rem;}

    Feel free to change 2.2rem to the value of your liking. E.g. the default is 2.8rem.

    You can add the above CSS code to your website by going to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Customize’ > ‘Additional CSS’. There please just paste the code and click ‘Publish’.

    Paul

    P.S.

    Should you want to also display tag descriptions, you can add this line right below the line for the category:

    if (is_tag()) {echo '<div class="didie-tag-description">' . tag_description() . '</div>';}

    and change .didie-category-description { to .didie-category-description, .didie-tag-description { in the above CSS.

    in reply to: Add Category description #3846
    Paul
    Keymaster

    Hi Didie,

    To perform this customization, the change needs to be made to the index.php file. You need to add the following line to it:

    if (is_category()) {echo '<div class="didie-category-description">' . category_description() . '</div>';}

    As shown in this image (see the highlighted line).

    Please mind that if you don’t want to add this line every time you update the theme, it makes sense to create a child theme.

    And to take care of the looks of this new text, I’d recommend adding the following CSS:

    .didie-category-description {
    	margin-top: 28px;
    	text-transform: none;
    	font-family: 'Spectral', 'Cormorant Garamond', 'Adobe Garamond', 'Garamond', Times, serif;
    	font-size: 1.7rem;
    	font-weight: 300;
    	line-height: 1.6;
    	letter-spacing: 0;
    	max-width: 780px;
    }

    You can add this CSS code to your website by going to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Customize’ > ‘Additional CSS’. There please just paste the code and click ‘Publish’.

    Didie,

    I’ll be updating the theme this month and will look into this again. Basically, I still can not reproduce the issue with Masonry, but I may have some ideas to improve the reliability of the code.

    As for you saying that “on mobile the masonry doesn’t show anyway”: I was testing the Masonry on mobile on a number of devices and operating systems, and haven’t encountered errors. For instance, the demo page Masonry works just fine on mobile for me — link. It stacks up the images in one column which is conventional mobile behaviour. It may be that some third-party code that you have added is conflicting with the work of the theme.

    Anyway, I will take a second look at Masonry-related code during the update. Getting to your other posts now.

    Paul
