Nivo slider has a main ID class called #slider, when downloading it as default from the website. Give that class a max-width:300px; value for example, and make it smaller and smaller for each resolution you target. It responds by re-sizing the image :) That’s the only example needed. If you use for example

@media screen and (max-width: 320px){
    #slider {
        position:relative;
        max-width:300px;
        max-height:100%;
        height:160px;
        margin-left:auto;
        margin-right:auto;
        overflow:hidden;
    }
}

That for example is for a iPhone screen in portrait mode, and in the same CSS I also added.

@media screen and (min-width: 340px){    
    #slider {
        position:relative;
        max-width:460px;
        max-height:100%;
        height:160px; 
        margin-left:auto;
        margin-right:auto;
        overflow:hidden;
    }
}

And that’s added in the same CSS for making the nivo-slider resize to 460px, meaning, the iPhones landscape mode ;)

Try it out! :) Just remember to give it a max-width not a width! Don’t ask me why, I tested this on several devices and noticed that sometimes width does not respond as it should.

Do you have a working example of this you can show? I don’t see how this is possible because Nivo applies the sliced up images as background images to different little chunks it breaks everything into for its transitions. So, with your method sure the slider would scale down, but it would just cut off all the images. Maybe I’m missing something?

Now I know this is not the Nivo slider, but a variation Kriesi has created himself, but his is responsive.

P.S – here is a link to where I first posted to the author for help and support on the template Mazine. http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/problems-with-installation-of-mazine-11-by-transparent-ideas/43942

Have you tried posting in the item’s discussion board? It appears the author is providing support to the other buyers posting there.

Did anyone watch the full video for this on their homepage? I think if you’re going to take the time to learn that plugin and use it, your time would be better spent learning how to make an actual WordPress theme.

I agree it’s not glamorous, but I just go into the wp_options table and adjust both the ‘siteurl’ and the ‘home’ options to use the local network IP instead of localhost.

I do this, too… except for instead of changing anything in the DB, I just have these two lines in my wp-config.php that I comment out when not testing on Windows:

define('WP_HOME','http://xx.x.x.x:8888/site');
define('WP_SITEURL','http://xx.x.x.x:8888/site'');

I can’t be the only one that gets this question every time I post an update to a WordPress theme so I’d thought I’d ask you all.

When a buyer says: “How do I update the theme?”

What do you tell them? Do you have a step-by-step you paste for them? Have you incorporated steps into a section in your theme’s documentation? If so, what are these steps? Do you tell them to delete the theme from Appearance > Themes and install the new version downloaded from TF? Do you tell them to login with an FTP program and replace the old files with the new files?

This is one common question I get a lot that I still haven’t really found a successful common answer to give. It’s a difficult thing to explain because while I hate the idea of someone having to click the “delete” button under Appearance > Themes, many people that struggled to install the theme in the first place are not going to be able to use an FTP program. And I get the snide remark a lot having to do with “All other themes and plugins have an update button.” ...

So I’m not looking for any kind of updating solution, but just curious what everyone else are telling buyers when they ask this with our common ThemeForest setup the way it is.

Assuming that you watched the above video and you’re trying to install the proper ZIP package, it’s possible that the theme ZIP package is too large for whatever PHP upload limits your web hosting service has in place by default on your account.

In this case you just need to unzip the theme and upload it manually with an FTP program to /wp-content/themes/ where you have WordPress installed.

Here’s a video on how to do this if you’re not familiar: http://vimeo.com/16681592

Just a note on this issue because I know it comes up a lot and there’s not a lot information when you search Google.

When you try to install a WordPress theme and you get the message “Are you sure you want to do this?” and you can’t get the theme to upload, a common reason for this is that your theme is too large for whatever PHP upload limit your web hosting account has in place.

I know I run into this a lot with my buyers on a couple themes where I’ve included tons of options, background images, etc, making the theme more large overall in filesize than your average WordPress theme.

So, if this is the case, it will be impossible to upload the theme through your WordPress admin panel. The solution is just that you need to unzip your WordPress theme and manually upload it to /wp-content/themes/ on your server where you have WordPress installed.

Here is a video tutorial that will walk you through this process:

Apparently he decided “not to eat poo,” finished the header, and then stopped.
