  1. custom letters

    in terms of functionality / usability no.. It's a portfolio website, only a stylistic thing.
  2. custom letters

    sorry, my post was lacking a lot detail... 1. I am working with Wordpress (the content is controlled by a content-builder in the theme) 2. This is what I am after... so it's a separate SVG I design in Illustrator for each character, not CSS..
  3. custom letters

    If I want to stylize some letters in a title, but don't want the change to be on the whole website... what would be the easiest way to do this ? Example: I want the O in a title to be custom, but not all of the Os... so a custom font won't do the job. Thanks!
  4. css not being applied on elements

    I am basically trying to get the headings on this site: test.extensio-management.de to get looking like on the screenshot attached. Currently I was trying to get the text centered (in terms of height) within the colored background.. I am not sure where it's coming from, so I've tried changing it in some way (just to see how it responds) in Theme's custom CSS: h1{ background-color: #6cb52d; border: 1px solid red; padding-top: 10px; } but the padding is crossed out in red and doesn't get applied (see screenshot). What does this mean ?
  5. [Avada Theme]image carousel with modal pop-up

    ok, thanks. Good to know. So I guess I'll try elsewhere.. their 'support' forum and fb group is very weak.
  6. Question to all the Avada users.. I'd need a carousel with photos of football players (11 total, 4 displayed at a time) and after I click on an individual photo, more info about the player will pop up as a modal box. How would I go about achieving this ? I thought it's impossible to do, but apparently it can be done.. https://theme-fusion.com/forums/topic/nested-shortcodes-modal-inside-images-image-carousel-not-working/ Thanks!
  7. okey, I will remove the auto-play in that case for sure. About the video not providing any value - it's a temporary video, I am working on one, where I am describing the product (book) personally and giving more details and info. So I definitely want the video there.. from my experience, people are not gonna read 2 pages of text... but a 2-3 min video is way more user friendly. I can imagine that there's also quite some bs being loaded with the theme - I am using Thrive Landing pages plugin to design the whole site - manage opt ins etc.
  8. thanks! ye, the video is really a pain.. however, I don't believe that there isn't a way to somehow optimize it.. would it perhaps help, if I embedded a youtube video instead of Wistia ? Although there are plenty of websites with a video about the product / service, without any impact on the loading speed. Also, do you have a suggestion about the caching ? All the performance tests are showing that I should utilize more caching. I just tested now through tools.pingdom.com and the loading time is 881 ms, which is not bad at all. However, when I actually load the site in the browser (and on the phone) it's loading forever. Here's a GTMetrix result, which is crazy... https://gtmetrix.com/reports/youngandripped.net/4xZgZkzU There are 2 pictures that are unnecessarily large for normal (and especially mobile) screens - I was using the WP Retina 2x plugin, however without success. So I'll try another method to serve the double-sized images only to retina screens where appropriate.
  9. Hey, after I've build my site, I am having serious performance issues and still haven't completely solved the situation. I am pretty sure Retina screens are somehow problematic.. as I've tested in on 'normal' Windows computers and the site is loading very fast (as it should be). But on Mac I have to wait at least 30-40 seconds. The logo and one other picture are double the resolution and I am using the WP Retina 2x plugin... do you think this could cause the problem ? Although I don't think two images would cause the site to load so slow ? (they are not that big anyway). I've experimented with caching plugins (still active) and CDN (Cloudflare - not active on the site anymore).. Here's the site: youngandripped.net Thanks!
  10. I've been looking into premium (paid) themes, and realized that it's probably more convenient to invest in a single, more complex theme, go through the docs and learn how to use it - and then create all websites in the future based on that theme. I've come across several themes that look promising, but of course there's so many - therefore I am interested, if some of you guys have personal experience with any of the multi-purpose themes. Been looking at these ones: https://themeforest.net/item/bateaux-creative-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/16524248 https://themeforest.net/item/x-the-theme/5871901?ref=oldschool101 http://wp-royal.com/hyper-x/demo/ They all have great support apparently as well. Thanks for the tips!
  11. finding media files in source code

    ok, so I guess it's different for every site.. For audiojungle for example, the mp3 file was in the Network tab. And it was purely out of curiosity.
  12. I'll use an example.. I have a site with sound (mp3) preview player like Soundcloud, sound libraries etc. I am guessing they work based on ajax ? Anyway, I thought I'd be able to locate the sound file itself in the 'sources' tab (Google Chrome). But I couldn't. Usually I find images this way. Is there a reason, why it doesn't appear there ? And is there a way to locate / get it somehow ? Thanks!
  13. Form onsubmit preventDefault not working

    Aah, yes.. you're right. After further inspection of the old website, it's using html Iframes to accomplish the 'redirect' - which is technically not a redirect after all and I don't think it's the proper way to do this (nevertheless, they accomplish the goal). That's why I though it is relatively easy to accomplish. I've never dealt with this before, so I wasn't familiar with the procedure / technique. Thanks for the info.
  14. Form onsubmit preventDefault not working

    well, of course. I don't expect the data to be sent within the redirect request. I though it was possible to send the data and just prevent any further behaviour... Here's the old site where it works perfectly fine. I don't think there's any additional javascript involved, right ?
  15. Form onsubmit preventDefault not working

    Thanks. So I remved the onsubmit from the html and this is what I got now: <script> jQuery(document).ready(function ($) { $('#submitForm').on('submit', function (evt) { window.location = 'http://thankyoupage'; evt.preventDefault(); }); }); </script> However I got the very same problem.. it does redirect to my thank you page, but doesn't send the data. If I remove the evt.preventDefault(); it redirects again to the default Google Forms thank you page (which I don't want) and also sends the data. I am now sure why it doesn't work with just the window.location redirect. That way it should theoretically submit the data first and then redirect to my local thank you page.. It's also worth noting that your code should be wrapped in a DOM ready event. I never understood why though Will need to do some reading on that.. but first I need to solve this quite urgently..
