Hi! I just purchased the template and i want to put the sponsors module on the homepage. Can you please tell me how? Thanks, it’s a great theme!

egemenerd

Hi,

You should add at least one sponsor and you should activate sponsors box from theme settings.

There is a detailed help documentation in the download. Please read it well. Its link is at appearance->theme settings page.

Thanks a lot!

Hello. I purchased your theme and it’s great! I am just having issues with getting the youtubetv link working from the homepage like the live sample. I already added my username for my youtube channel under theme settings but how do I add it as a submenu from the home main menu like your sample?

Default-user

nvm.. got it working :)

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply! One more question though, how do you remove the soccer icon in the tab?

egemenerd

Hi,

You can add your custom favicon from Appearance->Theme Settings->General->Custom favicon url

Hello, I am having an issue with the featured images. I have four pages set up as submenus and two of them work fine and show the featured images I have uploaded for each individual page. However, the other two default back to the featured images on the homepage despite having new featured images uploaded. Everything looks identical in the page set ups.

egemenerd

Hi,

I’m not sure that I understand your problem. Featured image is a standard wordpress feature. Please send me your wordpress admin link, username and password via contact form on my profile page.

Likely this will be my very last question since the theme works great and I’m not having any problems at all.

I wanted to know if there was an easy fix for removing the date caption from post’s feature image on the homepage. My post titles are typically two liners and the date is in the way. Thank you!

Ok, I tried that and I’d have to make the font 16px in order to fit both the heading and the date. I’d still rather remove the date field altogether. Easy fix or no?

egemenerd

Sorry but there isn’t any other easy fix. You can remove featured image.

hi there,

when I activate the plugin Sporty Fixtures and Results Sponsors, half my website disappears. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong? Same settings on another page and it all works.

I have no other plugin and my PHP version is 5.2.17

egemenerd

You are using a very old PHP version. You should use at least 5.3.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have already written to the provider. :)

Hi there,

For the fixtures table, is there a way to: 1) Have it display ‘Home’ or ‘Away’ text somewhere 2) Display the date without needing to hover over it 3) remove the link so it doesn’t go into a separate page when clicked on

Also where can I found the shortcode for this info box at: http://sporty-wp.wp4life.com/our-club/

Thanks!

Hello, I wanted to know if this theme is going to support cricket matches in any way? The results for cricket are much more complicated than that for soccer for example. I don’t mind entering a text to show the result but it is it possible out of the box, or i will have to make some code changes?

Direct support is great.. but at least there should be no blockers.

Thanks!

egemenerd

Hi, there isn’t any special feature for cricket. It is made for all team supports (two teams and two scores). You can add any content to the result pages. If you can’t find something you need in the theme, you can hire a web developer for customizations.

Hey, thx for the great theme. I can’t find the right width for the templates like sidebar, the articles fullwidth and the slider. where i can find all the original widths?!?

best wishes magnus

egemenerd

Hi,

They are in style.css file. Search for;

/* ==== PAGE STRUCTURE ==== */

This is a responsive theme you know, so we use percents instead of pixels. For example slider just fits to the main container. It doesn’t have a specific width…

Hello, great theme. Please help me to change the results’ url and remove the word “sportyresults”. Thank you.

Great theme, can I activate the full preview and then work off of that? Having a bit of trouble without some sort of page builder…thanks!

egemenerd

Hi thanks,

There is a demo xml file in the download. You can upload it to your website. Please read the help documentation;

Hi,

first: great theme!!! We have few little problems:

1. The “homebox” does not display the correct number of matches, if “Hide Played matches” is enabled. We have three matches played and instead of 5 only two upcoming matches displayed.

2. The translation into german has an error at the results label in the backend. “sportyhomescore” -> “Tore (Heim)” and “sportyawayscore” -> “Tore (Gast)”. Small but somehow funny error :)

With best regards Florian

egemenerd

Hi,

1) If I understand you correctly, you have 5 upcoming matches. You checked “hide played matches” box. Maximum Result value is 5. And it displays 2 upcoming matches instead of 5. Right?

Are you sure that you didn’t change questions marks on the upcoming match results? For upcoming matches, scores should be look like the following; http://i.imgur.com/fu6ZONX.png

2) German translation is made by one my german customers. I don’t speak German :) I added to the theme as a bonus.

If you are using wpml plugin, you can change translations from plugins admin panel. If not, you should edit translation files which are in theme and plugin folders manually (in languages folders);

hi,

we have a complete season with 12 matches, and three matches are played. The home pages shows only two upcoming matches. The Max Results is set to 5 – if I set it to 8 the home page showing 5 matches …

If you send me your wordpress admin link, username and password via contact form on my profile page, I can find what is wrong. It is not easy to guess without seeing anything..

very good congratulations your theme I wonder if the to translate into Portuguese of Brazil

egemenerd

Hi,

If you use wpml plugin ( http://wpml.org/ ), you can translate it to any language.

Default-user

egemenerd

You can translate it manually like all other wordpress themes but it is not an easy way;

Hi there, first of all, great theme, and amazing documentaion, very impressive.

When setting a post to “Private”, the title still shows on the front page, is there a way to prevent this?

egemenerd

Hi thank you,

It is visible only to you (because you are admin). If you log out from Wordpress admin panel, you can’t see the post.

Hey, thanks for the theme, it was perfect for what I needed.

I chose ‘homepage with sidebar’ for my front page but I just can’t make it display more than 1 recent post on it. I copied this code from the Help Documentation: [latestposts number=’3’ viewall=’true’ categoryid=”] but it doesn’t work anyway. How do I change/ fix it, please?

egemenerd

Hi,

Did you use text mode of the text editor?

http://help.wp4life.com/2014/06/16/shortcode-isnt-working/

There is a demo xml file in the download. I suggest you upload it to your website to see the example pages,shortcodes etc.

Hy there! I have a problem with results from the first page where the matches should appear chronologically but it appears upside down. What should i do? Thanks!

Default-user

Sent! Thanks!

egemenerd

Hi,

Yes you are right. Problem is, if you do this change, maximum result number option doesn’t works properly. I changed Appearance->Theme Settings->Latest Results Box value (9999) and it is working now but as I said you can’t limit the number of upcoming matches. It will display all upcoming matches.

As I said I will find a proper way and I will add it to the next update but for now, if you want to use ascending order, maxsimum results number option will be disabled…

Default-user

Thanks! The maximum number of results it’s ok for me because i will put matches for entire season. The single option that i need and is working is hide played matches. It’s ok now! Thanks again!

Is there a way to set the fonts and not use Google Fonts?

Default-user
Kev70 Purchased

Hi there, please ignore, I figured it out. Thank you!

egemenerd

Hi,

Sorry there isn’t any easy way… You should add your font files into the theme folder and you should edit includes/styles-template.php files. If you don’t have enough php,css knowledge, you can buy a customization service;

Theme looks amazing. Great job.

Installed theme and plugins with no problem. But the theme page defaults don’t appear when creating a new page? Not sure what I’m doing wrong. Looked through the help documents but can’t seem to find it. Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks in advance :)

Page templates I should have said. Good start.

Help docs says: There are 9 page template in Sporty-WP. You can select any of them during adding new page/editing page.

With this screenshot > http://sourcast.net/wp-content/themes/SPORTY-WP/documentation/images/pagetemplates.png

But when I’m creating a new page, those template options don’t appear. This is what I see when I’m trying to create a page

http://s7.postimg.org/enr60bdzv/scast.jpg

No I didn’t install the demo xml – a lot of the content was on-site before the theme purchase so was just going to make the theme fit. Wasn’t sure if it was a requirement (didn’t seem so) – but if it is I can just back it all up, install the xml and start again.

Cheers for the quick response too. Really impressed.

egemenerd

Click screen options which is at the top right of the page and check “page attributes” box.

If you don’t see any box like that, try to deactivate all your other plugins (not sporty plugins). There may be a conflict.

Fantastic. Should have spotted that. Thanks very much.

Back again sorry.

Clickable animation is causing the screen to grey out and fail to revert back to normal. Even though the site greys out, it still seems possible to use it – but really the user needs to refresh.

Processes that cause this include – clicking sliders & tabs but for some reason not animation on drop down navigation menu.

Haven’t to my knowledge changed any animation settings. Now downloaded the demo xml in an effort to fix the problem but the same applies, even on pages that the xml has inserted.

egemenerd

Which browser are you using? If you are using ie8 or ie7 try it on a modern browser like chrome, firefox etc. because sporty doesn’t supports ie8..

If problem still persists, deactivate all your other plugins (not sporty plugins) and try again

If problem still persists, send me your website link please…

Having trouble with embedding videos – http://www.footballmarathon.co.il/cause/

Have tried with Iframe with the automatic embed is too big, nothing works. Thanks so much for the help

egemenerd

Hi,

I don’t see any problem. Your videos are working properly on the gallery. I think you fixed the problem..

Hi,

Thanks for the theme.

I have a small problem with blog articles. I have blog category and I added it to my main menu. There is not any problem with them but when I get the articles in my blog page some of the articles’ title can not be shown on the page. For example I have 20 articles and just 5 of them has the titles on blog page. What is the problem?

Thanks.

egemenerd

Hi, Deactivate all your other plugins (not sporty plugins) and try again. If problem still persists send me a link please…

Default-user

Hi, I fixed the problem. Thanks.

But now I have another question. I need to create many galleries with many photos. For example I will create 10 gallery with 50 items each of them. So will I upload each items (photos) one by one ? I think I will upload each photo one by one and I will connect each photo to each gallery one by one. Am I right? or is there any easy way?

Thanks.
