Discussion on Slowave - Multipurpose Responsive WordPress Theme

Hello! I purchased your theme and have it working well. I just have a question regarding the size of customized images on the portfolio. I would like to have all the images have a standard size. Is is possible to do this without having to manually cut all images to be the same width and height?

Here’s a link: http://paola-velasquez.com/grid-3-columns/

Thanks!

Cheers!

Hey there,

You can increase this via “settings” -> “reading”, or you can change your page permalink to something like /my-porfolio/ since /portfolio/ is used by WordPress for archives, once you’ve done this you can add a portfolio with finer control using the page builder.

Cheers!

This solved the portfolio issue, thanks! Just one more question, sorry! So I can edit the portfolio page, but the categories show the portfolio in 4 columns, which I can´t find a way to edit so that they display 3 columns like the main portfolio page. Is there any way to change this so that it displays in a uniform way?

Here´s the link for the portfolio: http://paola-velasquez.com/myportfolio/ And here´s the link for categories: http://paola-velasquez.com/dslc_projects_cats/film/

Thanks again!

Hey there,

Your category layout should be controllable via the controls in “appearance” => “customise” => “portfolio settings”

Hi, it’s me again :S I am using the live composer widgets area and when I insert the widget in a page it looks like this http://prntscr.com/4609ep I mean it doesn’t take the css but I am using the same widget in the blog sidebar and it looks like this http://prntscr.com/460axy

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey there,

Sorry, I cannot offer support for issues with 3rd party plugins and the theme / page builder.

Hello.

Your theme is fine. I have a question regarding Excerpts on Staff.

It seems that the HTML tags are stripped from Excerpts on Staff. http://www.cnvhousing.com/site/about-cnvhousing/

How can I bypass this?

Best, Konstantinos

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You’d need to convert the staff module in /ebor_framework/live_composer_blocks/ in the theme files to use the_content() rather than the_excerpt()

Cheers!

Default-user

Yes, but how?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

It seems you’re using one of the live composer team elements, the theme does not control these, instead, choose a Slowave team element from one of the “slowave” categories in the page builder, specifically the Team Feed if you want full content to be shown.

Cheers – Tom

Hey Tom: What are the major differences between Slowave and Loom?

tommusrhodus

Design & simplicity, Slowave uses Live Composer as it’s page builder, where Loom uses Ebor Template Builder, based on Aqua Page Builder. Loom is also easier to extend and build upon.

The front facing differences are simply in the design elements.

Cheers!

Hey everyone thinking about getting this theme… GET IT :)

I’ve had an amazing experience. Tom is amazing.

Here’s 3 reasons you can’t go wrong with this theme and developer:

1) This theme is built on such a strong foundation of technology right from the start including an amazing responsive page builder and incredible video slider. This is what leveraging best practices looks like.

2) It’s easy to get everything to look and behave exactly like you want right out of the box. No developers needed to build amazing page layouts that auto-magically work on mobile.

3) Tom’s customer support is seriously unrivalled. He goes the distance, and stands behind his work. Not only is he fast at responding, Tom is just a really nice guy, and he goes that extra mile.

Please note, as an online marketing consultant it’s not uncommon for me to meet big corporate clients who have way less functionality in their CMS, and are forced to get developers to help layout pages. This theme is empowering, as it’s got everything you need to get results without any additional developers help. The toolset is simply amazing, and the support to back it up just rocks.

Great work Tom!

You’ve got a customer for life :)

tommusrhodus

:D Thanks so much! Put a smile on my face on a Monday morning!

We have recently bought this pluggin/theme and setup everything under outsite.com/wordpress We decided to put the site on the root of our domain and we have everything working but the live editor. You can no longer see the images on the toolbar’s nor does the editor slide up and give you options to edit an object: http://i.imgur.com/Sk7xdDm.png

Any thoughts?

Please contact me from the account that purchased Slowave.

Hi, I want to use Logo and menu in the centre alignment. But how can ?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Sorry, we don’t have this option in Slowave so you’ll need CSS customisation. If you need any help with this you can contact our customisation partners here: http://www.madeinebor.com/contact/

Cheers!

Hi, i would like to add some icons that i have designed, can i do this? How? Thanks.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

No sorry, this would require theme modification, we load the icons through an icon font, so you’d need CSS and PHP customisation to tie them into the theme.

Hello Tommus,

I am very new to WP and thanks for a great theme.

I have set up navigation in appearances / menus… Several top navs with sub-menus. When viewing the site, the sub-menus are visible but “rarely” selectable. The sub-menu box appears when I hover over the top nav, but disappears before the mouse reaches it so I can’t get to any of those pages. I say rarely since it has worked sometimes, only from the home page, and never from the inside pages.

Any advice? Here’s the site… http://theflowproject.la

Cheers, Paulynn

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Please increase the menu margin control in “appearance” => “customise” => “header settings” until this issue is resolved.

Hi Tommus,

Another question here…

http://theflowproject.la/opportunities-gallery/

I’d like to change the look of the buttons on the portfolio page “category menu” that goes across the top of the portfolio images. There are quite a few categories, and we don’t need the buttons styled as they are with the rounded rectangle around it. Is there a way to choose other button styles easily? Also, I’d like to make the button font smaller.

Thanks! Paulynn

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can add the following to “appearance” => “customise” => “custom css”

.filter li a { border: none !important; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px 3px; }

Cheers

Hello again!

Hope you are well! 3 questions…

1. How can I change the style of button and fonts on the portfolio pages. I want to make the filter buttons smaller so they all fit on one line. Thanks!

http://theflowproject.la/a-vision-donor-opportunities-test/

2. Is there a global way to change button styles? I am modifying the theme button so that its more round, and not as tall, and I’d like them to be transparent, with a thin outline. Once I make the change on one button, can the same style to transferred to all buttons?

3. Lastly, do you know of any plugins or your own tools that can make a step by step diagram using a wavy line, like a wave?

Thanks so much!

Paulynn

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

For 1 & 2 you’ll need custom CSS to change the styling of the theme, if you need help with this you can contact our customisation partners here:

3. Sorry, the theme doesn’t have this with a wavy line, and I don’t really know of any plugins either.

Hi,

My friend has asked me to look under the hood of his page and he is using Slowave.

I have two questions:

1) How can I make the header disappear when the full-screen slider is on? I have seen this in MANY pages (http://alerosoft.com/wp/ for instance, that is not my friend’s site)—I’ve tried MANY things but I just can’t.

2) How can I make the footer smaller? It is HUGE at the moment. I just want it to say “all rights reserved” or something like that. How can I change that?

Thanks.

tommusrhodus

Hey there.

Please contact me via the account that purchased the theme, all support is reserved (understandably) for confirmed purchasers.

Cheers!

the slowave theme is installed along with woocommerce but woocommerce says all the included woocommerce template files are out of date. many use 1.0 but should be 2.2

will this theme be updated with the relevant files so it can function properly with woocommerce?

tommusrhodus

...again, the theme never claimed to work with WooCommerce? The files included are development only.

Anyway, feel free to contact Envato support about this if you need:

http://support.envato.com

Cheers

commentluv

thanks for your response. I don’t understand why non working files are included in the theme, either they need to be updated or removed. as it is, this theme does not work out of the box with the files it is included with.

tommusrhodus

You’re completely correct :)

I’ll get them removed for the time being, tbh I didn’t realise they were no longer working (they made a basic product layout with the WC version that was available when this was released) but that’s totally on me! :)

Cheers – Tom

Has the tutorial issue been resolved in Chapter 3? It’s stuck, and I can’t move forward.

Crystal

tommusrhodus

Hmm,

I just clicked that and it worked fine, took about 5 seconds for the options panel to appear on the bottom of the screen.

Consider quickly trying a different browser :)

Cheers

Default-user

Were you able to move past that? The options appeared for me, but the program did not allow me to move past it :)

tommusrhodus

Yeah :) Again, took a few seconds for the layout to update to 2 columns, but then plain sailing after that :)

Hi there,

this could be an easy one. How do I change the projects ”/project-view/”- URL-part to something else?

Thanks and brgds Hanno

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Go to “Live composer” => “slugs” from your WP Dashboard :)

You may need to go to “settings => “permalinks” and click “save changes” to refresh your permalinks if you get any 404s afterward.

Cheers!
