    Having issues with the new update. For some reason the author names and tags are formatted incorrectly in the grid blog display. A short author name is breaking on two lines and the tags are sometimes aligned right and sometimes completely underneath. Did you test how author names look in the latest update? Here is a screenshot of the author names and the misformatting:

    Also noticed you’re still using the old Advanced Excerpt which doesn’t play nice with Jetpack and social icons. Please offer a newer/better solution then the unsupported and outdated Advanced Excerpt plugin.

    Hi Carl,

    What about disabling the advanced excerpt plugin and using the built in More tag within WordPress? In the meantime, Andy is looking into alternatives.

    Already discussed that idea, would have to hand edit hundreds of articles. Better to wait for a better excerpt plugin. But what about the other formatting issue with the grid blog in the new 4.0 update? Look above, see how the author name and tags are all split up? The author name should easily fit on one line, no?

    Hi Carl,

    Andy is looking into fixing this code.

    For the time being, please try the following CSS.

    .tags-icon {
    display: none !important;
    }
    .tags-list {
    float: none !important;
    clear: both;
    }
    .author-name {
    display: inline-flex;
    }
    

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Tom, thanks. It’s displaying better in Chrome, but looks the same in Safari as if it’s rejecting the custom CSS, I even reset Safari, cleared cache, etc. Chrome on left, Safari on right :

    Hi Carl,

    This file should fix the issue with the author field:

    Replace DynamiX/lib/inc/classes/metadata-class.php

    With ( Unzip ): http://help.themeva.com/tmp/dynamix/metadata-class.php.zip

    Thank-you! That did fix it, and I was able to remove the custom CSS. Will this be included in the next update? Also noticed another bug with 4.0, on the iPhone in portrait mode, the site logo is now elongated and the icon for the menu is overlaid on top making it unclickable. It didn’t do this before:

    Hi Carl,

    It looks like your logo might be a bit too large. What size do you have for retina? It appears they are not quite right.

    To fix the menu issue, please use the CSS fix below.

    .mobilemenu-init {z-index:999;}
    

    This will be added to the next version of DynamiX.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    The retina logo is: 756×160 and entered in the theme settings at half the resolution as 378×80 (also the size of the non-retina version). What’s weird is on the settings it’s elongated too. It used to display fine on the iPhone, and hasn’t changed in size since site launch. Noticed this on the 4.0 version:

    Hi Carl,

    That is very strange, I have just tested this again on my own test server and it appears like this.

    If you are still having issues, please set your reply to private and provide your URL/login details so I can take a further look for you?

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Hi Carl,

    Your image is more than full width for the iPhone so it squashes it slightly.

    The retina size you have set is actually larger than the iPhone width pixels. So when the jQurey loads it, it sets the size you have set but because it is bigger it resizes the width but not height.

    Andy has added some CSS to make the height auto for retina.

    Most people do not have such a large logo which is why we have not come across this issue before.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Great, thanks Tom and tell Andy thanks too! Cheers!

    Hi Carl,

    Will do, thank you. If you are happy with the theme, please take a second to rate the theme 5 stars here.

    Much appreciated 🙂
