Also, please. I would like to add the Soundcloud, Instagram and Tumblr icons. Is it possible? I’ve seen this sort of answeres already here, but it was for DW Minion. So i’m not really sure how to fix this.

Thank you.

Me again. lol Sorry.

How can i limit the number of pages appearing? The site it’s taking more time to load and i think it is because it’s loading all the content.

Once again, thank you!

And again. 🙂

DWPromo Bar is not fully compatible with DW Timeline Pro Theme, once the DWPromo Bar is on, we can’t see the full square on the left side to check the profile and social links.

you can check it here: http://www.lifeandbeats.net , also, the social link for Facebook is fixed but i had to add it manually on the Editor.

I feel like a Tester for this theme 🙂

Thank you, Miguel

I don’t think that the promo bar is even fully compatible with this theme on this site, so I can imagine if it’s not working seamlessly with other themes.

Hi Guru, well for me it will be only needed to pull down a bit the black options box on the left. 🙂

It’s also not working for me. I also am wondering why it shows the icons of services that I have not added links for. If I don’t want to link to a specific service, there should not be a dead link there.

Yes, i had that problem too. Now the thing is that i need more icons. 🙂

Hi Miguel !
– Regarding the limit posts in the page, we will discuss about it in the next version.
– Regarding the icons, right now you can download the latest version in your profile.
After updating, you can log in to Dashboard > Widget > About widget, add your link for the Instagram and Tumblr icon.
– To add the cloud icon, please do as the following:
Step1: open the widgets.php file. find the line 55, add the following code:

 $cloud = $instance['cloud']; 

Step2: Find the line 91, add the following code:

 <?php if ($cloud): ?>
 <li class="cloud"><a href="<?php echo $cloud ?>"><i class="fa fa-cloud"></i></a></li>
 <?php endif ?>

Step3: Find the line 117 add the following code:

 if ( isset( $instance[ 'cloud' ] ) ) { $cloud = $instance[ 'cloud' ]; }

Step4: Find the line 163 add the following code:

  <p>
             <label for="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'cloud' ); ?>"><?php _e( 'cloud:' ); ?></label>
             <input class="widefat" id="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'cloud' ); ?>" name="<?php echo $this->get_field_name( 'cloud' ); ?>" type="text" value="<?php echo esc_attr( $cloud ); ?>">
         </p>

Step5: Find the line 191 add the following code:

         $instance['cloud'] = ( ! empty( $new_instance['cloud'] ) ) ? strip_tags( $new_instance['cloud'] ) : '';

Hope this helps !

The Icons i’ve managed to add the links through the Editor. The issue now is that on your Demo you only have like 5 pages, and so the site loads very quickly. But since we do not have the chance to limit how many page should the theme load, it turns the website very slow. I’ve nothing against infinite scrolling, but it should only load the next page after the user get’s to the end of Page 1, for example.

Am i being confusing? It’s just that i really like the theme, and i’ve paid for it, and i think that i should not be the only one with this issue.

Many thanks.

Cheers,
Miguel

Me again!

When i visit the website on my iPhone in Safari, it’s not as it shows on the live demo. Is there anything i need to do?

Best,
Miguel

Any answer on this?? The look on iPhone is terrible and nothing to do with the preview. Also, when do you guys expect to deliver a version without the full load of the page at once? When i open my blog – http://lifeandbeats.net/ – he loads all the posts in all pages. It takes time and i only have 100 posts in there. When i turn 1000 posts i don’t think it will load properly. Any chance to have a load button or something to avoid this?

Best,
Miguel

Hello Miguel ! 
1. We have checked on our demo, the  DW Timeline: About widget still works fine.
Firstly, please deactivate  all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one and let us know if you find the problematic plugin(s). Maybe there is a conflict in plugins.
If you still face there issue, you can send me username & password of your site for further checking (via private answer).
2. To add the Soundcloud, Instagram and Tumblr icons in the DW Timeline pro, you can open the widgets.php file in the folder path “\wp-content\themes\dw-timeline-pro\lib”. Find the line 45 to line 68,
Replace the following code: 

 public function widget( $args, $instance ) {
$avatar = $instance['avatar'];
$description = $instance['description'];
$facebook = $instance['facebook'];
$twitter = $instance['twitter'];
$google_plus = $instance['google_plus'];
$youtube = $instance['youtube'];
$linkedin = $instance['linkedin']; echo $args['before_widget'];
?>
<div class="widget-about">
<div class="text-center"><img class="avatar img-circle" src="<?php echo $avatar ?>" alt=""></div> <p class="description text-center"><?php echo $description ?></p> <ul class="share list-inline text-center">
<li class="facebook"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a></li>
<li class="twitter"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a></li>
<li class="google-plus"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-google-plus"></i></a></li>
<li class="youtube"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-youtube"></i></a></li>
<li class="linkedin"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-linkedin"></i></a></li>
</ul>
</div>

With new Code: 

 public function widget( $args, $instance ) {
$avatar = $instance['avatar'];
$description = $instance['description'];
$facebook = $instance['facebook'];
$twitter = $instance['twitter'];
$google_plus = $instance['google_plus'];
$youtube = $instance['youtube'];
$linkedin = $instance['linkedin'];
$instagram = $instance['instagram'];
$tumblr = $instance['tumblr'];
$cloud = $instance['cloud'];
echo $args['before_widget'];
?>
<div class="widget-about">
<div class="text-center"><img class="avatar img-circle" src="<?php echo $avatar ?>" alt=""></div> <p class="description text-center"><?php echo $description ?></p> <ul class="share list-inline text-center">
<li class="facebook"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a></li>
<li class="twitter"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a></li>
<li class="google-plus"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-google-plus"></i></a></li>
<li class="youtube"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-youtube"></i></a></li>
<li class="linkedin"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-linkedin"></i></a></li>
<li class="instagram"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-instagram"></i></a></li>
<li class="cloud"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa fa-cloud"></i></a></li>
<li class="tumblr"><a href="#"><i class="fa fa-tumblr"></i></a></li>
</ul>
</div>

– Find the line 87 add the following code: 

 if ( isset( $instance[ 'instagram' ] ) ) { $instagram = $instance[ 'instagram' ]; }
if ( isset( $instance[ 'cloud' ] ) ) { $cloud = $instance[ 'cloud' ]; }
if ( isset( $instance[ 'tumblr' ] ) ) { $tumblr = $instance[ 'tumblr' ]; }

– Find the 119 add the following code: 

 <p>
<label for="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'tumblr' ); ?>"><?php _e( 'tumblr:' ); ?></label>
<input class="widefat" id="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'tumblr' ); ?>" name="<?php echo $this->get_field_name( 'tumblr' ); ?>" type="text" value="<?php echo esc_attr( $tumblr ); ?>">
</p>
<p>
<label for="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'cloud' ); ?>"><?php _e( 'cloud:' ); ?></label>
<input class="widefat" id="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'cloud' ); ?>" name="<?php echo $this->get_field_name( 'cloud' ); ?>" type="text" value="<?php echo esc_attr( $cloud ); ?>">
</p>
<p>
<label for="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'instagram' ); ?>"><?php _e( 'instagram:' ); ?></label>
<input class="widefat" id="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'instagram' ); ?>" name="<?php echo $this->get_field_name( 'instagram' ); ?>" type="text" value="<?php echo esc_attr( $instagram ); ?>">
</p>

 3. To limit the number of pages appearing, you can log in to Dashboard > Setting > Reading, then add the number in the Blog pages show at most section.
4. We have checked your link, I think you have disable the DW promobar plugin in your site.  Also, the link that you have provided does not the DW Timeline pro.
Hope this helps !

I tried your demo (http://demo.designwall.com/#dw-timeline-pro) and the social icons there don’t do anything either. Presumably they’re supposed to open windows that correspond to each social network, but they don’t do anything when I click on them. I tried in both Safari and Chrome on a Mac.

Hi there! Thank you for your complete answer. Limiting the page that appears on the blog is done, however i had to select 22 posts under the “Blog pages show at most”, in order to only appear 5 pages on the Blog. It’s not the best solution and i think that we should have something like number of pages and then “more..” on the right, because i don’t want to have a full list with the number of pages on my blog, appearing on the right side of the blog.

Regarding the icons, everything is working fine and i have the icons on the blog now, the issue is that when i add the links through the widget DW Timlime: About, they just don’t appear on the blog, and the icons keep redirecting to the homepage. Any clue on how to fix this??

DW Promo Bar i did not have the time to check this at the moment but as soon as i have an answer i’ll let you know. 🙂

For now, i really need the Icons fixed, or let me know how can i manually add the links through the Editor.

Many thanks,
Miguel
