  • Good. Now, are you going to remove the “Post Formats” tag from the description as well, since it’s a blatant lie? This version of the theme doesn’t support post formats.

    Now it looks very good! 🙂 Slow slide is here, the menu items work as expected. I can see no problems right now. If I see any I will let you know, of course, but right now it looks nice all around. Well, apart from the comment forms on the front page, of course. 🙂 But those are really not meant to be there. Don’t know why they forced you to add them, that’s not the point of this theme at all.

    Please let me know when you’ve uploaded the fixed version and I will be happy to change my rating to the five stars it deserves.

    As for SEO, I’m not an expert, to be honest. But how about adding rel=nofollow to the links? Google will index such links, I think, but they will have zero weight? If I’m not mixing anything up. 🙂

    The link might do, I suppose, although won’t it defy the purpose? I mean, the link will be there to be indexed, no matter where in the post you put it. But then again, I’m not a SEO expert, I’m not really sure how it works. 🙂

    Thank you for taking time to update. Unfortunately, in new beta things have become worse. 🙂

    The scrolling is broken absolutely. Clicking downwards arrow doesn’t bring you to the first post, but just freezes the page scrolled halfway up, somewhere around site description section. You can then scroll down with the mouse wheel, but when you return up again the site title stays the same size and transparency it was the moment the page froze. The animation works only once – on the way down. And then it’s stuck.

    If you scroll with the mouse wheel from the very beginning, bypassing the arrow completely, then it’s the same story. Animation only once.

    No matter the way you go down (via arrow or via mouse wheel), the anchor links stop working. Links on the sidebar work only once as well and only if you didn’t start scrolling and didn’t click anything. If you click something once – the rest stops working.

    The tab with the post number doesn’t follow the scroll the way it’s seen on your demo. I mean, the little square with the number, which is visible while you’re on the corresponding post. This square isn’t there even for the first click.

    When you’re halfway down the page, hovering mouse on the left side brings out the side bar, but it’s blank. Home button, “down” button in the bottom, squares with numbers are not displayed. However, if you hover the mouse up and down again over this bar when it’s out, red menu items for posts appear. Maybe they’re just the same grey colour as the background and that’s the reason they’re “invisible”…

    I’ve tested it on Explorer 11, Chrome and Opera 12 (the last one with Presto) and the results were the same across all three.

    Thanks for responding, Fabien!

    I know about the comments. I read the tracker discussion and I really had this feeling you were kind of bullied into adding them.:) They really are not needed on the front page.

    However, I cannot understand why you decided to do it the way you did. I mean, the comment form under each post is probably the ugliest thing I’ve seen. Why not make the post title a neutral looking link to the single post page and leave all the comments stuff there? The way everyone is doing. 🙂 This way you will have the comments’ support and won’t have ugliness marring the nice front page.

    The documentation was required because the theme was not functioning as seen on the demo site. Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind is that I’m doing something wrong or missing something. So I go looking for a theme options page, but there’s none to be found. So next I go looking for the manual, but there is none to be found as well.

    I suppose that had I known from the start that the left side menu was not actually present on the current version, I wouldn’t have needed any documentation.

    I can honestly say that the theme has potential. I would love to use it for my novel promo page. 🙂 People who gave it only 1 star reviews were being harsh, I suppose, but that’s what you get for not explaining the state of things clearly. Believe it or not, but that was all about this side menu, it was the biggest inconsistency.

    It’s a real disappointment. Out of four ratings the theme has gotten so far three are one-star marks. And the worst thing is that the theme does have potential, which makes the disappointment all the more bitter.

    I suppose you just need to edit the posts_loop_template.php file to tell the plugin to fetch the entire post instead of an excerpt. Just replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content() ?>

    Although I’m not sure as to why one would need something like that from a posts-in-a-static-page plugin, since this is not the point of it. 🙂

    That’s very unfortunate. I have no desire to register and give my info to yet another site just to repeat what you already know since it was already voiced. I don’t see why you wish to make giving feedback such an issue. Especially when your plugin is so awesome.

    Well. Just in case you might be interested: the Jetpack support recommended I forward you this link: http://jetpack.me/support/infinite-scroll/#js-events Maybe that could be helpful.

    Ah, thank you! I’m using the first method in case I might want some other functions as well in a couple of weeks. 🙂 Works like a charm.

    I have the same problem with Jetpack’s Infinite scroll module. The first page goes okay, and all the subsequent pages don’t invoke Simple lightbox unless the whole “infinite” page is reloaded (in which case all the loaded pages stay, it doesn’t revert back to page 1).

    I’m not sure this is the same Infinite scroll you have listed on your page on Github. Also I don’t really fancy registering with the site just to leave you a comment there. 🙂 Would it be possible to note it from here? And what are the chances of changes being implemented? You can be honest, please, I’ll understand. 🙂

    Thanks, it works. However, I don’t need all this functionality provided by Jetpack, it’s really tooooo much. Also I hate it that Jetpack always nags me on my Dashboard to use its “new” functions I absolutely don’t need, and I can’t close this notification (the one with green line on the side).

    All in all, installing Jetpack for the infinite scroll is a bit like buying an excavator when you just need to shovel a bucket of sand. 🙂

    Isn’t there a simpler way? Maybe a standalone scrolling plugin?

    I meant, I took a piece of code out of another theme as an example and adapted it to Minnow. 🙂

    I’ve found a solution in another theme using similar template structure. Don’t know how fine it is code-wise, but it works. 🙂

    Would you really mind sharing your customizations? Especially the first two. 🙂
