In need for some layout changes

    Hi,

    I bought the theme Creative, but there are some things I would like to change :

    – if I don’t use the blog section, on purpose, I wish there would be no text at that place. Is it possible? (instead of nothing found? ready to publish your first post)

    – if I buy the premium account, which gives me access to the css, can I edit the way the articles show up? Because the fact that the date of publication and the type of article are published, could be an argument to leave this theme, as I really don’t want those details to appear. Thanks to let me know.

    – in the same situation, on the page ‘portfolio’ (https://mingotwo.wordpress.com/portfolio/), I don’t want the title as it is : Archives Projets. Can I edit it with the css?

    – my website is in French but there are some elements from the theme that show up in English (like ‘view projet’ or ‘filter by type’ on the portfolio page). Do you know how I can edit those or will they be changed by the WP team?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    The blog I need help with is eugeniebrin.wordpress.com.

    Theme translations are automatically made live when they reach at least 85% translated. Right now, France French is only at 62% translated as you can see here:

    https://translate.wordpress.com/projects/wpcom/themes/creative

    If you’d like to add some translations to help it reach the 85% threshold, you can do that here:

    https://translate.wordpress.com/projects/wpcom/themes/creative/fr/default

    Just let me know when it’s done and I’ll have one of the volunteer GlotPress validators take a look and approve them, and once that’s done, the translations go live within a day or two.

    I don’t want the title as it is : Archives Projets. Can I edit it with the css?

    You can hide the title with CSS (with display: none) or you can add to it with pseudo-classes, but I don’t think you can actually change it to something else entirely. Angela, if you can point me to an example of where this was done, I’d love to take a look – I may learn something! ;-)

    Hi Angela and Kathryn!

    – Regarding the blog section, are you referring to the homepage of your website, like this: http://lift.d.pr/1grAx/3maiQVNs ? Or are you referring to the admin area?

    I’m referring to the homepage, you can actually check on the website now what’s up, which is what I don’t want

    Ok! Yes if I can hide the title, and yes to see an example of what’s already been done!

    Regarding translations, I already checked on glotpress, found the elements I wanted on Creative, but I guess that’s what you explained, we haven’t reached the 85% needed! I added 8 translations yesterday, will do some more in the near future then. Thanks Kathryn!

    Thanks Angela, and I’ll be waiting for you regarding the blog date and category!

    Great – just let me know when you’ve added more translations and we’ll take it from there.

    I’ll let Angela get back to you on the CSS customization parts. Thanks!

    Hi

    Just did some! (translations).

    Angela, do you have any news for me?
    I’ve been working on the theme and almost all my issues are solved. As I said, if I can’t remove the details of publication on the article and pages, it’s a categoric no to use the theme… So I’d need to know as soon as possible. Thanks a lot for your help!

    eugenibrin – thanks for adding those translations! They’ve been validated and will go live within the next 24-48 hours.

    Using a browser inspector can help you figure out how to target particular elements with CSS. These are a couple of good tutorials:

    http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/08/29/css-matched-rule-pane/

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/how-to-find-your-themes-css/

    https://thewc.co/articles/view/web-inspector-tutorial

    Using a browser inspector, I don’t see a unique class on the post date on the blog page and single posts, which means I don’t know if there’s a way to hide the dates, as they have the generic class post-meta-item, which some other elements (like categories, tags, and comments) share. This is a bit unusual. Here’s a screenshot of what I see in a browser inspector on the demo blog:

    Hopefully Angela can chime in to confirm whether there is any workaround for this or not.

    Thanks so much Kathryn!!

    Here’s the customer site that removed the Archive: Projects. http://johnwmcglothlin.com/portfolio/ Looks like he may have done just as you mentioned Kathryn. My memory served me wrong thinking he replaced the text.

    eugenibrin – I’m talking to my dev team to see what they advice about the blog date and category.

    Thanks for your patience!

    Ok thanks!

    Also, not to add pressure but I also had this question :

    – Regarding the blog section, are you referring to the homepage of your website, like this: http://lift.d.pr/1grAx/3maiQVNs ? Or are you referring to the admin area?


    I’m referring to the homepage, you can actually check on the website now what’s up, which is what I don’t want.

    (“Nothing found? Ready to publish your first post”) Actually I don’t want the blog section on the homepage.

    Here’s how to change the Archives: Projects text:

    .post-type-archive-jetpack-portfolio h1.archive-title:before {
    content: "Portfolio";
    font-size: 36px;
    font-size: 2.25rem;
    }
    
    .post-type-archive-jetpack-portfolio h1.archive-title {
    font-size: 0
    }

    You can change the “Portfolio” text with whatever they want to appear there.

    I will be back in touch with the remaining items.
    Thanks,
    Angela

    Here is the CSS to hide the date and category (http://lift.d.pr/udJi/3zdY1Ysy) specific post meta information on blog pages.

    .post-meta-item,
    .post-meta-item + .post-meta-item {
    display: none;
    }
    
    .post-meta-item + .post-meta-item + .post-meta-item,
    .post-meta-item + .post-meta-item + .post-meta-item + .post-meta-item {
    display: block;
    }

    Hi there,

    Looks like this will answer all of your questions. The one that remains is still a little unclear to me.

    I’m still unable to see the website, could you make it public so I can get a more clear understanding of what is showing for the blog section. It sounds like it may be showing you something different because you are logged into the site.

    All you really need to do is create a page and call it blog and then go to Settings > Reading and choose that page to show for blog. That should cure what I think is the problem. Here’s what it should look like: http://lift.d.pr/ES6M/2qIvjiCT

    Looking forward to seeing the site and getting you completely taken care of.

    Talk to you soon,
    Angela

    Sure! I’ll make it public because I’m not sure how to send pics via this forum…. Doing it right now

    Just saw the other posts! I just need to get the css and it should be good then! Thanks a lot!

    Regarding the other concern, I hope you’ll see what my problem is when you’ll see the website. Please let me know.

    Just added the codes in the css and it’s working perfectly! Thanks a lot!

    Just one last thing though, regarding the details on the pages. Maybe it’s my fault I should have precised that I wanted everything on the side bar to be removed. So now, there is still the image showing up. Can you send another code for that one please?
    Thanks a lot!

    Speaking of pages and portfolio, I would like to know how to play on the order of appearance on that page https://mingotwo.wordpress.com/portfolio/
    Right now it’s an order by date of creation, but I would like it to be not random, but in an order that I can’t explain (to be clear, it would be : Metropole, Axia, Festival du nouveau cinema). It’s not alphabetical, neither chronological… it’s a bit complicated. The way I see it is that I would assign a number to a portfolio and deal with that, like in the pages.

    I created this page to give another try https://mingotwo.wordpress.com/portfolio/
    but still, the attributes to deal with the order of appearance do not suit my concern…

    Sorry to bug you with all this, it’s a complicated website I know!
    Thanks again

    Glad that worked well!!

    Regarding the details on the pages, do you mean the blog? The code that we provided for the category and date? Please provide a link to the page you are referring to.

    It would be a good idea to add ordering to the portfolio area. Currently, the only way to organize it is to play with the dates to show what you want first. We will keep this in mind for a possible enhancement.

    Regarding your outstanding question about the homepage. With the homepage you created did you choose the Homepage template? See the first step here: https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/creative/support/

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Have a great weekend!

    Hi,

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear.
    When I mentioned the details on the pages, I was referring to that kind of pages https://mingotwo.wordpress.com/portfolio/remstar/
    Indeed, the date and category have disappeared, but there’s this little box that still remains and which I wish could be removed also. In fact, I’d don’t want anything on that sidebar.

    Great for the ordering to the portfolio area, please let me know when it’s done. In the meanwhile, I’ll play with dates.

    Lastly, regarding my question on the homepage, I did first, create a Homepage template, but speaking with my client, the section on the homepage and the 3 boxes didn’t suit their needs. So we decided to go with another layout. Which is the one you saw https://mingotwo.wordpress.com/ , the only thing is the text appearing because I didn’t post any article. The thing is that I just want the slider and the widgets bar on the homepage. And unfortunately, it’s not because I’m logged in, I tried on another browser… Please let me know!

    Thanks a lot!!

    Me again, hi.

    I just discovered that on the other pages ‘portfolio’, there’s another title which I don’t want to appear (same situation as above).
    I’m referring to those https://mingotwo.wordpress.com/project-type/distributeur/ https://mingotwo.wordpress.com/project-type/festival/

    Do you think you could send me a code I could put in the CSS so that it’s removed, please?
    Thanks for your help

    Thank you so much for the clarification! We are on the same page now.
    I’m asking my dev team about the small box on the portfolio pages along with the search on the homepage. I will update you on those once they have had time to review.

    Just one more clarification. Is this the title that you want to remove: Arbre du projet : Distributeur and Arbre du projet : Festival. Just want to make sure we are on the same page there.

    Thanks,
    Angela
