      Hello,

      Currently I’m using the Nabma theme.

      I recently tried to share my site http://japantokorea.asia/ on Facebook and noticed that the default image (Blog Avatar) and Site Description were both random. The site description is also random on a Google search for the homepage of the site.

      How can I change the default image associated with my site and how can I change the site description?

      Thanks,
      Mike

        @mike19145: Hi, I think the best way to set this values is to use a plugin. Facebook is using “open graph” to gather the needed information. A plugin would set these additional values and you can define them yourself.

        Best,

        I was recently modifying my Baylys site and noticed that the “top” text is visible under the up arrow on the bottom of the page. This was especially noticeable because I have two sites, one in English and one in Japanese, and it only shows on the Japanese one http://n3-art-lab.com/ . I have not modified the theme’s files in any way.

        Here was the code I noticed when I inspected it

         <a class="top clearfix" href="#site-nav-wrap">Top</a> 

        Is there any way the “top” text could either disappear or be displayed correctly?

        Thanks in advance and I love this theme.

          @mike19145: Hi, the problem is caused by the simply-instagram.css. I’m guessing it comes with a plugin, which uses the same classname for the clearfix-functionality. Please note that we can not help with plugins the theme isn’t prepared for, but the following CSS should fix your problem:

          .top.clearfix::before {
          content: none;
          }
          

          This article should help adding the code: http://www.elmastudio.de/en/wordpress-en/custom-css-wordpress/

          Hello,

          I was recently updating the portfolio section of both my Japanese and English sites Japanese – tsunoshimagomi.comEnglish – tsunoshimatrash.com and noticed that the description text, which is truncated and a “read more” option is visible on my English version, extends beyond the text box border on the Japanese version. Both versions of the site use the same updated Baylys theme and matching plugins.

          Can someone help with this?

          Thanks,
          Mike

            @mike19145: Hey Mike, I just checked your site and I would suggest the following: You could add some custom CSS to extend the height of the portfolio section like:

            #content .post.portfolio-element {
            height: 570px !important;
            }
            

            You can add the CSS via the Custom CSS feature of the Jetpack WordPress plugin or with the Custom CSS manager plugin. In case you are using a child theme, of course you can add the CSS there.

            Please let me know, if this worked.
            Best, Ellen

              Hey Ellen,

              I was investigating some options to get the “…Read more” text to show up with the shortened paragraphs again and maybe I should reinstall the theme? What do you think?

              If this is the best solution could you direct me somewhere that could guide me on how to do it and keep the formatting I’ve already done (just customization within WordPress, nothing to the theme HTML or CSS)?

              -Mike

            Hey Ellen,

            Thanks for the reply. Your themes are amazing.

            Ideally, I would like to not extend the height of the portfolio section. I would like the “…Read more” link and shortened paragraph text to be displayed the same on both sites?

            I like how the paragraph is shortened with the “…Read more” in the English version of the website and would like to have that on the Japanese as well.

            Thanks in advance for your help,
            Mike

              @mike19145: Hi, after some research I think the problem is the WordPress excerpt function, which isn’t working for Japanese characters. You can simply set you own excerpt in the dashboard while editing the corresponding article. Click on the top right “Options” button and activate the excerpt checkbox. Now you can set your own excerpt per article. You can shorten the text so it fits in the portfolio box. I hope this works for you.

              Marc

                Thanks Marc

                You are awesome. I really appreciate the help. I will definitely continue to buy these themes because of the great customer support.

                Regarding the fix, I will try it out on my next post.

            I’ve been trying to modify the text size of the site to something a little smaller. I found Ellen’s post on the Baylys theme page:

            “To change the entire font size you could add a font-size percent value to html directly (maybe only in the Media Queries for the desktop view) like:

             html {font-size: 90%;} 

            I’m not exactly what “to the html directly” means, I assume it means add to the HTML element in the edit css screen. Am I correct? Also, why does she “maybe only in the Media Queries for the desktop view”? Would it not be changed on the responsive mobile option as well?

            I tried to to the aforementioned modification by adding it to the appearance – edit css – but it did not change everything. As far as I can tell it changed the size of the menu options on the top only. I went ahead and did some css work for the header and p elements.

            
            .entry-header h1.entry-title,.entry-header h2.entry-title {
            	font-size: 30px;
            	font-size: 1.5rem;
            }
            
            .entry-content p {
            	font-size: 1rem;
            }
            
            

            But now I’m stuck on the h3 reply title

            <h3 id="reply-title" class="comment-reply-title"> 

            which I want to change the size of. I tried to modify the size of the h3 through css but it did not work.

            
            h3 {
            	font-size: 20px;
            	font-size: 1rem;
            }
            
            

            Any help would be greatly appreciated.

              @mike19145: Hi, if you know the exact element you want to style, try to address it as exactly as possible. In your case you could replace “h3” with “h3#reply-title”. Another way to force the h3 settings to be used for your #reply-title is to use the !important statement like this:

              h3 {
              font-size: 1rem !important;
              }
              

              I hope this leads you in the right direction.

              Marc

              Hey Marc,

              Thanks for the comment. I did it and it worked and I learned some more about CSS in the process.

              Just out of curiosity – Why, when I change the HTML font size it does not change the font size for everything on the site?

               html {font-size: 90%;}

              Try this baby!!! it works!!

              p { font-size: 15px !important; font-family: ‘Georgia’, “Times New Roman”, Times, serif !important;}

              Place code in Custom CSS under Theme Options.

              p for paragraph, so substitue as needed.
              adjust font-size
              use any font family you want. Google “google fonts” and you can get the whole font name to use in place of the above.

              This is gold!!
