Changes in the 1.5 update

    Nirvana v1.5 includes several structural changes that can cause issues with your site when using a child theme:

    • We’ve completely rewritten styles enqueues (to bring the functionality up to date with WordPress coding standards and improve child themes support) – however this change also means that existing child themes will partially malfunction after the 1.5 update.
      If you’re using our NoLink child theme, you can find the updated version in your account.
      Depending on the complexity of your child theme the update will simply require that you edit your child theme to use the new styling enqueue methods or may require a complete child theme rewrite.
      If you notice styling issues (like missing fonts, incorrect layout) after the update because the styles get loaded in the wrong order, edit your child theme and replace the existing enqueues with:
    • We’ve rewritten and rearrange the code generating the presentation page. If you have customized this functionality in your child theme, it may need updating.
    • Several theme settings (colors, images) have new defaults – these will not take effect on existing sites, but if you’re still using the theme’s example presentation page images you’ll notice these changed.
    • We’ve also slightly adjusted some of the theme’s styling (spacing, margins, font sizes). Depending on your existing configuration you might also notice these.

    If you’re seeing anything unusual after performing the update and you’re not using a child theme, clear your plugin’s cache (if you’re using one) and force refresh the browser.

    If you’re still having trouble after performing the described solution steps, don’t hesitate to start a topic or contact our support service.

    If you’re not happy with the 1.5 changes there’s also the option of reverting to the previous 1.4.5.1 theme release. WordPress does not include an integrated solution for the procedure, however it can be done using the Rollback plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-rollback/

    The update killed my site.
    I’m using Cryout and can’t figure out the correct file to add the above code to. Can you give me a little direction please?
    Thanks!

    The enqueueing code is normally found in the child theme’s functions.php file.

    Hi Zed, With the update my font size went small and some formatting changed – dot points in About slant to right.
    I tried adding suggested text to Nirvana Child Theme: Theme Functions (functions.php) but it made the site worse, I lost my fonts, and it made no difference to font sizes, or formatting

    @dihooper, you have the entire parent theme styling in the child theme’s style.css file. Since the order the styles are loaded in is parent, options-generated, child (it has always been this way), this results in the old (now outdated) styling overwriting the correct one. You need to clean up your child theme style.css file to contain only the customized CSS.

    The 1.5 release does include small changes to font sizes (some to the defaults, so they don’t apply to an already configured site, some to the actual values applied), spaces/paddings and general looks. Such changes are obviously visible after the update. You can use the theme’s typography options to slightly adjust the values.

    Thanks Zed, but how do I do that?

    #69216

    We’ve gone through and cleaned up file but font size still tiny. Ive gotten rid of the dot points on my About page, so they aren’t misaligning.

    @dihooper, you’re setting the general font size to 12px in the child theme:

    Thanks Zed, will check it out

    #69222

    Im looking at lines 51 and 52 is that correct?

    You can remove those both as they duplicate (and overlap) styling already present in the theme (generated based on the configured options)

    Which image size is used in that widget? Try changing to a larger size.

    I added the code to the functions.php in the nirvana theme but it still won’t come up.

    Server Error

    500 – Internal server error.
    There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

    Hi Zed, I’ve replaced bio (Di Hooper) image with 500×500, so quality is better, but I would love to go back to pre-update size of widget image box. It was about one sixth the size of current widget box. What do I do to change that?

    I meant to add this to previous message:
    pre-update I had a 291×334 image contained in a small widget box – and it was perfect!

    The current widget/image size on your site is 350×350, so an image this size will suffice to avoid blurriness.

    Hi,

    I’m using a child theme so I’ll adjust the enqueuing shortly but after updating, I’m getting:
    Cannot redeclare nirvana_ppslider()
    previously declared in
    /wp-content/themes/nirvana/includes/theme-frontpage.php:12
    in
    /wp-content/themes/nirvana-child/frontpage.php on line 174

    Sorry but I can’t supply the URL because it’s still in development in a protected directory.

    #69486

    How do I change widget image size on site to 150×150. or smaller? I don’t want a big image. It used to be very small and I liked it that way.

    #69489

    Hi,

    all good 🙂 The error only persisted while I had the old version of frontpage.php in my child theme directory.

    I copied the new nirvana/frontpage.php to the child theme (and merged my original changes) so everything is looking great again.

    While I’m here… Nirvana has to be one of the very best WordPress themes out there for tech-savvy and non-tech personnel alike. Amazing work!

    Thanks, guys!

    All the best from Scotland

    Hello,
    I’ve updated the theme and since than I have troubles with RTL issues. For example- the menues order has changed.
    How do I change it back?
    I don’t think I have a child-theme on my site

    Hi Zed,
    I upgraded to Nirvana 1.5.0.1 and a problem has been created. The site is in Italian and all the apostrophes now appear with the code #8217; This is an example:
    “la gemma rara è un#8217;associazione di volontariato”
    How can I solve the problem? I tried to replace the font but the problem remains.
    Thank you.

    The new theme updated messed up all of my formatting. I am beyond infuriated with your team. I have my final meeting and presentation for this website in a few hours and now I have to try reformat and customize everything back to the way it was.

    What’s worse, is that the changes I have made to the site in Nirvana Settings are not even showing on the live site. Social Media icons not the colour that they are set in the settings. Header height is not 200px like it is set to be. Page titles won’t go away even though they are set to ‘hide’.

    Please fix this ASAP, you’ve ruined by website and I can’t even change it back to how it should be.
