Support » Theme: Modern » Problems with nested comments

    Hey guys!

    Generally I love this theme and found almost anything I wanted to do. I have two problems.
    First, I want to have ‘nested’ conversations with followers who take the time to comment on my posts. This, however, looks quite problematic after a couple of comments (see link I posted). Sentences will only show one letter each line making the comment unreadable. I would love a nested comment section without indents.

    Second, not that important, but I wanted to add a gallery in the very same style of the ‘portfolio’ with pictures added to certain categories. However, I don’t want each picture to be a ‘project’ you can click on. I’d love an option for this kind of structured portfolio-gallery though 🙂 Plug-Ins I found usually look very different from the generally cool style of the Modern theme.

    Thanks for any help/feedback!

    xoxo

    Hi Ben,

    Please note that the theme was designed only for specific comments nesting level. I suggest reducing the comments nesting level in your WordPress settings. If you want to reduce the comments indentation, please apply this custom CSS:

    .comment-list .children {
    	margin-left: -1.62em;
    }
    @media only screen and (min-width: 42em) {
    	.comment-list .children {
    		margin-left: -3.38em;
    	}
    }
    

    I will update the theme to improve the nested comments style.

    I’m not sure if I truly understand your second issue. How would you insert such gallery into your website? The portfolio posts layout is basically the same as other posts layout in the theme. If you would like to apply such layout on a gallery somehow, this would require quite a custom coding.

    Maybe if you want you can simply use the portfolio for each of your pictures and then use a plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/page-links-to/ to link each project to a full image URL. If you then use a lightbox plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-featherlight/ the image would open in a popup window instead of opening a project page.
    Other than that, if you would like to remove project linking altogether and really just display the images in small size in portfolio layout, the theme is full of action and filter hooks, so it can be easily modifiable.

    Or if you have multiple galleries, simply create a portfolio project, add a gallery into project post content and set 1 image form the gallery as project post featured image. Then, when user opens the portfolio project page, he/she will see the whole gallery.

    Please use official theme support forum at https://support.webmandesign.eu/ for faster turnaround.

    Hey!

    Thank you so much for the custom CSS, it works perfectly!
    Thank you in general for creating such a wonderful Theme 🙂

    I will have to look into the whole Portfolio situation… It’s probably the easiest way to just get a Plugin to it for me as I’m not big on coding.

    Have a wonderful week!

    xoxo

    Hi Ben,

    Glad you like the theme 🙂

    As for Portfolio, I don’t think a plugin will help here. If I understand correctly, one of my proposed solutions using theme’s native Portfolio functionality with WP FeatherLight plugin could work for you. However, I’m not entirely sure how you would like to treat and display your portfolio, actually.

    Regards,

    Oliver
