Adding sidebar to category posts

Hi, first let me say how much I’m enjoying working with the theme, excellent work!

I feel a bit silly asking as I’m probably missing something obvious here, but I can’t figure out how to add a sidebar to either a category listing ( e.g. http://www.euged.com/demo/metrolium/category/parent-category-i/ ) or to a single post entry within my ‘news’ category ( e.g. http://www.euged.com/demo/metrolium/a-stunning-post-with-lots-of-beautifully-styled-typography-elements-inside/).

I’ve tried adding the blog sidebar widget area but with no luck, any pointers would be great!

Conditional IE statements appearing above the Hello bar

Hi,

I’m getting a dark bar (background #333333) appearing right across the top of the screen in IE9 and IE10, its above the Hello bar, in which is displayed some empty conditional statements:

<!--[if if IE 7]> <![endif]--> <!--[if if IE 8]> <![endif]-->

If the Hello and info bar are not shown, the dark bar still appears so it doesn’t seem to be connected with those. Any idea what’s generating that?

I’m running WP 3.5.2

IE7 / IE8 displaying mobile layout since update to 1.1

Since updating to v1.1, IE7 and IE8 are now showing the mobile layout while on being viewed on large displays, that is, the thin banner with ‘Show menu’ appears at the top, logo centered under that and then slider appearing under that.

This wasn’t happening before, any ideas?

Recent posts widget - select by category

Hi,

Is the a fix yet (or on the way) to enable use of categories in the Recent Posts widget as mentioned in the description field? It would great to be able to use that in the side bar and select by Category. So far I’m having to work around with another plug in but it doesn’t allow for images. :(

Thanks! Graham

Person shortcode URL link

I don’t seem to be able to get the URL to work within Person shortcode. I’m formatting it like so:

[person name="Joe Bloggs" role="Director" URL="http://www.my-company/joe.bloggs" email="[email protected]" ] Some text about joe. [/person]

The email box shows up okay under the content text, but not the URL box. What am I missing?

Thanks! Graham

Add media button not working in IE

Hi,

I had a second purchase/install of Metrolium go live this week (still loving the theme!) user feedback from which has thrown up a problem in IE 8 / 9 where the Add Media button is not functioning (click and nothing happens). I’m wondering how to go about trying to find what is causing it and fix it.

A few data points:

The problem exists on both installations of Metrolium The two installations are not hosted by the same provider Both sites are running WP 3.6.1 Both are running child themes (both are different designs) Problem persists when running the main Metrolium rather than a child theme Problem persists with all plugins turned off Problem does not happen with all plugins turned on when running default WP themes Problem does not happen when running default WP themes Problem does not happen in Firefox or Chrome Fresh install of all files (WP and Metrolium) did nothing to fix it

Not sure that this relates to the above but fwiw WP_DEBUG brings back:

Notice: Use of undefined constant PORTFOLIO_REWRITE_SLUG - assumed 'PORTFOLIO_REWRITE_SLUG' in ../wp-content/themes/Metrolium/includes/custom-post-types/config.php on line 8

Notice: Use of undefined constant PORTFOLIO_CATEGORY_REWRITE_SLUG - assumed 'PORTFOLIO_CATEGORY_REWRITE_SLUG' in ../wp-content/themes/Metrolium/includes/custom-post-types/config.php on line 13

It’s tempting just to tell users not to use IE but it would be better to be able get a handle on whats causing it and resolve it. Any ideas?

Thanks, Graham

Portfolio filter not working

Hi, we have a portfolio page set up named 'research' with several items under three categories, its a child page .../project/data/research/

However when you click the category buttons at the top, instead of the items sliding to reorder themselves as per the demo, the page url changes, for example to .../portfolio-category/cross-cutting/ and every portfolio is still displayed whether it belongs in the category or not.

Any idea how we can resolve it? I can supply login info via private email if you contact me by email.

Thanks, Graham

Add content to portfolio archive page

Hi,

Is it possible to add content above the filter / nav bar on a portfolio archive page? The client would like to be able to add and edit text there as a short intro. I can’t figure what code to add where to make that happen though.

Thanks in advance, Graham
