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).

    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    The reply above is a bit outdated.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.

    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.

    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’.

    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.

    Hi Joy,

    If you are talking about the Instagram widget at the bottom of the website, there are no special actions required to make it display in one line, just as you see in the demo — link. If you are still experiencing this issue, please let me know the address of your website, and I will investigate the possible reasons for the 2×3 layout.

    As for making this 6—10 images, instead of the 12, this can be done, however, there is not a setting for that in the interface. You can do that by going to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Theme Editor’, selecting ‘Mauer Essentialist’, /js/general.js

    There find the line (should be around line 100 of the file):

    var nuOfPics = 12; // use an even number

    And change 12 to any even number. Then click ‘Update file’.

    Here is a quick visual guide to the above: see image.

    in reply to: Font names #3833
    Paul
    Keymaster

    Hi Joy,

    Please excuse the late reply.

    The font from the menu is called ‘mauerMtrpl’ in CSS, the font from the post titles is ‘Playfair Display’.

    You can use the following CSS to change the font of the title to that of the menu:

    /* Site title in font from menu */
    .section-logo-area .text-logo {
    	font-family: 'mauerMtrpl', 'Libre Franklin', 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    	font-weight: 400;
    	letter-spacing: .16em;
    	line-height: 1.1;
    	text-transform: uppercase;
    	font-size: 4.3rem;
    }
    
    @media (max-width:680px) {
    	.section-logo-area .text-logo {
    		font-size: 3.3rem;
    	}
    }

    Or you can use this CSS to have your site title displayed in the same font as the post titles:

    /* Site title in font from headings */
    .section-logo-area .text-logo {
    	font-family: 'Playfair Display', Georgia, serif; 
    	   letter-spacing: 0;
        line-height: 1.4;
        font-weight: 700;
    	
    }

    I would not recommend using these two codes together. It’s basically one or the other.

    To add one of the above snippets to your website, you can go to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Customize’ > ‘Additional CSS’. There just paste the code and click ‘Publish’.

    Paul
    Keymaster

    Hello Hillel,

    I’m glad you’ve found a solution that’s working for you. I’ve also figured this out and decided I should let you know.

    Actually the theme has always been overriding the WP’s [gallery] shortcode — even before the arrival of WordPress 5 that brought the block editor. First, the theme itself was doing that, then the bundled plugin.

    And this is actually a feature of this theme, and it was intended to work this way. The idea was to bring a gallery that was better than the native WP gallery and did not require any hassle to use it. Just add native galleries as usual and have a better result, was the idea.

    If I drop the override now, it will affect the users that have started using the theme in the times of WordPress 4 and have created their content in the old fashion — with the [shortcode] tag instead of the Gutenberg block. If I disable the override, one day upon updating the theme and the bundled plugins, they would find out, that their content is not how they tailored it. So I believe I should better keep this the way it is.

    Anyway, you’re right — turning off the plugin is the way to go if you want to disable this override.

    Or if you prefer to use the other functionality of the plugin like the Gutenberg block, but at the same time turn off the override of the [gallery] shortcode, you can go to ‘Plugins’ > ‘Plugin Editor’, select the plugin and put two slashes in front of the following line of the plugin.php file:

    add_filter('post_gallery', 'mauer_essentialist_gallery_shortcode_handler', 10, 2);

    Just as you see in this screenshot.

    And then click ‘Update file’.

    You’ve probably figured how to find the theme options by now, but just in case: if you’ve followed the instructions in the Storyteller User Guide (particularly in section 1), then you have a ‘Theme Options’ item in your Admin Panel menu.

    As for changing the font, the theme does not provide this opportunity out-of-the-box. But if you are thinking about using a font available on Google Fonts, you can let me know which one it is and for which elements you’d like to use it (Headings or Body text), and I’ll provide a few lines of code that will change it.

    Please excuse the late reply. And stay safe from COVID! Cheers.

    Regards,
    Paul

    Fabian,

    The images inside blog posts and inside portfolio projects are actually the same size if you use images of the same aspect ratio. For instance, see the two images standing side by side in this post and the images standing side by side in this project.

    That being said, the cover image in blog posts may often be a bit wider than the images in portfolio projects. To make them the same, you can add the first image into a blog post the same way you add it to a portfolio project (inserting it via Gutenberg). In this case, you’d need to hide the blog featured image from the blog post page, which can be done with the following line of CSS:

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

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

    Hello Fabian,

    If you are still experiencing this, can you please try to go to your Admin Panel and navigate to ‘Settings’ > ‘Permalinks’ and just click the ‘Save Changes’ button without doing anything? Then please let me know if the issue persists.

    The above procedure is known as ‘flushing permalinks’ and is a common cure for 404 errors in WordPress.

    Hi Didie,

    Frankly, I haven’t used Mailerlite. As for the MailChimp, it’s overall a great solution and I had a very nice experience with it. However, last time I checked (2 years ago) there was not an out-of-the box way to let WP-site visitors to subscribe and get notifications of new posts via MailChimp. At that time I was contracted to code such a solution for a client. Things may have changed since then.

    You also can use Jetpack for blog subscriptions. Just as in the demo.

    Jetpack requires PHP’s XML module, which appears to not be turned on in your environment. Please contact your hosting about turning it on.

    Keymaster

    Hello Reto and Sabine,

    Yes, you are right, the cover image is 1200×900. And the area where this image is being displayed is 856×642. So the number of pixels in the image is almost twice as high as the logical resolution of the area where it’s being displayed. (1200 x 900) / (856 x 642) = 1.96. This means that the appearance of theses images on Retina screens is much sharper than on regular screens.

    I can see that you started showing larger images in covers, I believe 2560×1920. Please be aware that this slows down the loading time of your pages (as well as using full-sized images in the post body).

    Image sizes on the web are always a compromise between quality and loading speed. I’ve found a compromise at the level of having an image that has double (1.96) the number of pixels than the logical resolution where it’s being displayed. You’ve decided to take this further. However, please be aware that this results in a certain decrease in your website’s loading speed.

    Thanks for your kind words about the theme.

    Regards,
    Paul

    Paul

    Hi Nwsalt,

    I’d suggest the best way to go about this is to base your modifications on an existing layout file. For instance, content-grid_2_cols.php.

    If you open it, you can see the layout is made with the Bootstrap framework. This means you can control the width a post occupies by altering the classes. After that, you may also like to center the textual parts of the posts. And use larger thumbnail sizes.

    Please mind that such modifications should be made in a child theme so that your changes don’t get overwritten during theme updates.

    FYI: when I was working on this design, I did not create a list view because I did not really like the way it was coming along with the style of the theme.

    In my experience, 0.4s loading time is pretty much inachievable if you are using WordPress. I mean that whatever theme you use, the mere fact that you are running WordPress would put you out of 0.4s territory, unless you cache the whole website and serve pre-cooked HTML. You can try turning off Autoptimize and using WP Super Cache to cache the whole website.

    Hello Gosia,

    Speaking of translating static phrases like “read more”, or “older posts”, or “all”,

    This theme is translation-ready in a regular WordPress fashion. That means it comes with a language file which has all the default texts.

    That said, I believe the easiest way of translating a theme is by using the Loco Translate plugin.

    After you install and activate it, in your Admin Panel please go to ‘Loco Translate’ > ‘Themes’ > ‘Mauer Essentialist’ and click ‘New Language’.

    Select your language (in this example it’s ‘Portuguese’, please choose Swedish for your website). And click ‘Start translating’:

    You will see a list of all the strings ready to be translated. Here is how it looks:

    When you’re done translating, click ‘Save’ and ‘Sync’.

    Now if you have your WordPress language set to (in this example) Portuguese*, then your website will display the translated strings.

    _______
    
* — ‘Settings’ > ‘General’ > ‘Site language’ (at the bottom).

    As for the Polish characters in HK Grotesk, let me try a few things and get back to you with a solution.

    From what I can see chiarabellamoli.com is working pretty fast, Pingdom is giving it a performance grade of 90/100.

    Actually, the mere fact that you have 6 JavaScript files loading is not an indication of anything. All of them weigh less than a single image. And 6 is not much. For instance, this very page is loading 30+ JavaScript files.

    If you want to increase the performance of your website, you can use a solution like Autoptimize. Another thing to do would be to upgrade your hosting.

    Hello Muggz,

    2) The portfolio page shows all the projects you have. The ‘All’ link appears when you go from all projects list to a category (you can think of this as a filter). The ‘All’ link offers a way to get back from a category to the list of all projects.

    Basically, clicking a category applies a filter to the portfolio page, and clicking ‘All’ resets this filter.

    If you wish to hide the ‘All’ link you can do that by going to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Edit CSS’, pasting the following line of code and hitting ‘Publish’:

    .cat-item-all {display:none!important;}

    3) You can get rid of the ‘Load more’ button by going to ‘Theme Options’ > ‘General’ and setting ‘Nu. of projects on portfolio pages’ to a really high number, e.g. 9999.

    4) The theme has been tested to work with another sorting plugin. I would suggest to delete the one you are using now, and install the one mentioned in the User Guide. Please see section “8. Changing order of portfolio items, categories, etc.”

    As for 1), can you please let me know how you set Editorial to be the front page? I have a suspicion that your front page is displaying a list of all your projects, not just editorial. For instance the project “Ted baker – Colour By Numbers” is Commercial, not Editorial.

    Please excuse the late reply, there’s been a family situation.
    Also, did you intentionally delete the links linking to projects from the Portfolio page and made them non-clickable?

    Hello Chiara,

    Here is how you can make this customization and transform the Welcome phrase on the front page (‘Sincere portrait…’ in the demo) to an h1:

    1. In your Admin Panel go to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Theme Editor’. On the right, in ‘Theme Files’ click ‘Portfolio Page Template’. Find this line (somewhere around line 17, depends on the theme version you are using):

    <div class="portfolio-welcome-phrase no-auto-hyphenation"><?php echo get_field('portfolio_welcome_phrase', 'option'); ?></div>

    and replace it with this:

    <h1 class="portfolio-welcome-phrase no-auto-hyphenation"><?php echo get_field('portfolio_welcome_phrase', 'option'); ?></h1>

    Click ‘Update file’. The end result should look like this: please see screenshot.

    2. Go to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Edit CSS’ in your Admin Panel. Paste the following code and click ‘Publish’:

    .portfolio-welcome-phrase {margin:0;}

    Please let me know if this has worked out for you.

    Marcus, the demo of the theme works pretty fast regardless of all the stuff you’ve mentioned. This all actually is not as important as lazy loading. If I were you, I would start with the following:

    1. Make sure you’re using the version of the theme that supports lazy loading (Stills 1.3+). Turn it on (Jetpack > Settings > Performance > Enable Lazy Loading for images).

    2. Reduce the size of the gifs as much as possible.

    3. Make sure you are using a good hosting.

    All these caching plugins, minified scripts, and other stuff — I don’t use it, and the demo runs fast. Just because of the lazy loading. “Minify your scripts and use caching” — is a generic site-bloating type of answer (imho).
