Hey there, first of kudos on a wonderful theme. Very slick and intuitive.

I’m hoping you can shed some light on an issue I’m having trying to run an event ticket sales plugin, specifically CampTix (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/camptix/).

While the plugin installs just fine, the shortcode simply translates into an error code. Working with the plugin author, we’ve determined it’s the ViewPoint theme that’s causing the issue, not the plugin (since the plugin works with all the native WP themes).

Here’s the reply about the interference ViewPoint is exhibiting:

“The shortcode doesn’t operate by itself, it relies on a function hooked to template_redirect which executes before the shortcode content is shown. If it has not executed, the “An error has occurred.” message is shown instead, meaning the $camptix->template_redirect() method is bailing, probably at the very beginning.”

Do you have any ideas what would exactly in this theme could be preventing this plugin shortcode from working correctly? Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks!

FinalDestiny

Try adding at the end of functions.php before ?>

add_action('template_redirect', 'my_test');
function my_test() 
{
    echo "testing data";
}

And you’ll see the text shows up fine, so there’s no issue with the template_redirect hook and the plugin function should load just fine.

Thanks for the reply Final.

You’re right, the text does show up just fine. Unfortunately, it still seems as though something in this theme is not cooperating where others are (again, tested this plugin with about 8 or 9 themes).

What’s your thoughts on this:

After running the test, as you described, I activated a few other themes. I then reactivated ViewPoint and low and behold…the ticketing plugin was working. Now, all of the paths to my uploaded images in the theme were broken, but the plugin was working. After about 5 minutes, the image links “fixed” themselves, and the plugin returned to the error state.

It’s almost as though upon reactivation, wordpress hand’t fully activated the ViewPoint theme, allowing the plugin to show, and work. Or at least not activated/loaded the portion of the theme that’s causing the blocker/error.

I can reproduce this, without fail, time and time again… I just can’t figure out what the culprit is though.

FinalDestiny

Go to camptix.php and find:

if ( ! is_page() || ! stristr( $post->post_content, ‘[camptix]’ ) ) return;

remove it

This should’ve been done by the plugin developer as he developed it and he surely knew that it can only executed when in a page. Since this is a one-page theme, all the content was printed on the homepage.

Default-user

Final, you rock!

You nailed it, man. Removed that and things worked like a charm. Can’t thank you enough for your fantastic support (on something that was not even your issue, to boot)!

I’ll be sure to pass this along to the plugin developer to avoid headaches for other users in the future.

Glad it worked. If you can, please rate the theme(1-5 stars) on the themeforest downloads page. Thank you.

Hello, I love the look of this theme, but I am having trouble getting the blog to work the way I want. I created a page called “my-blog” and specified that page as the page used for the blog page. I created a test post, but it doesn’t show on my-blog or anywhere.

It is quite possible I do not understand how it is supposed to work, any insight is welcome.

Thanks in advance for your help.

FinalDestiny

Create a page, choose the blog page template for it instead of the default one…and after that, you can configure which categories to include in the blog in the right area, in Page Template Settings

Hello!

I had a question about the contact form. I set the email to go to a gmail account and it won’t send. Do you know how to resolve this?

Also, I love this theme, very sharp.

What version is the latest version? I just deleted the version I had uploaded to Wordpress awhile ago, and uploaded the new version I downloaded off of Themeforest. I was hoping all of the issues you said were going to be fixed would actually be fixed but I’m still seeing many issues. It says I have version 1.5. Is the newest version?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Okay, so I was under the impression that these three things had been fixed with the latest update. So when I deleted the Viewpoint theme, downloaded the latest version from Themeforest, and installed it (v 1.5?), you can imagine that I would be very disappointed that the below things are still issues. Please give status update ASAP . If these aren’t resolved very soon, I will have to request a refund. This is starting become absurd.

1 – iPhone Main Picture – When I pull up the website on my iPhone, it is STILL not showing the main header image that is shown on the website. You originally said this would be fixed a few weeks back with the update. Here is a screenshot of what I’m talking about:

http://imageshack.us/a/img14/9255/mainimageh.png

2 – iPhone Page Headers – This is also still an issue. I pointed this out 22 days ago and you just never acknowledged the comment. Please see the below screenshot for an example:

http://imageshack.us/a/img32/4226/accomodations.png

Before the last update, the text used to “wrap” and run over onto the next line. Now it stays on the same line (as seen in the above screenshot) but the text is just too big. Can you please update the theme so that the “page title” text is smaller? As it is now, only 9 letters can fit which I think it way too small. The word I’m trying to use “Accommodations” does not seem like it should be an issue for something like this. A smaller font size would fix this.

3 – This was also pointed out 22 days ago but you chose to ignore it as well. I’m just going to copy and paste the original comment: “It’s hard to describe this, so it’s probably best if you look at the screenshot below first. The top menu looks very strange when you start to scroll down and see the section titles. Take my screenshot for example. You’ll notice that the MB logo is not centered to the “Details” section. I’m not a designer, but I would think that the main logo should be centered on the page. Right now, it looks like you are centering the whole thing, taking into account the length of the menu choices up top.”

How do you center shortcodes on a page? When I highlight the code and click the center option, it just centers the text in Wordpress, but the actual site looks exactly the same still.

FinalDestiny

use the [center] shortcode like [center]content[/center]

I created a blog page. When I make a post, it doesn’t show up on the blog page. In fact, when I click on the blog option in the menu, it just refreshes the page. What is going on with this theme? Why doesn’t anything work? How do I see my blog posts? You have an email with my link and info already so please don’t respond in 10 hours asking for that.

FinalDestiny

It’s fixed now.

just to clarify. When I hit publish, and then hit “view post”, it just brings up my main page again but its showing the link to the blog post…

FinalDestiny

answered via e-mail, you chose a non-existent permalink structure, pagename, the correct one was %postname

Hello

I am very excited and happy with this theme! super slick. I was wondering if you can help answer some questions i have:

1. how do you create the “portfolio” section as it is shown in the demo, with the thumbnails and the pop up Modal?

2. Also, on the top nav, whe nyou click the buttons, it does this little little jerk/blink then the page slides down…. when you slide down it works fine. is there a reason for this?

FinalDestiny

1) its the [portfolio] shortcode, check the documentation for it 2) Make sure you use the latest theme version

Thanks for all of the replies FinalDestiny, I’ve been a little on edge and I’m sorry for being on the rude side. I have a bit going on (as you can probably tell from my site!) and it’s stressing me out so I apologize. I just went back and rated Viewpoint as a 5!

Last question, I think. How do I remove “Blog” from the menu? It’s not an option in the Navigation section. Secondly, can I remove blog from the menu but still have it be functional? I’m trying to use it as a hack of sorts, and use the “posts” as additional links. I think you can see what I’m trying to do if you look at my site.

thank you for your response. I purchased Version 1.6. Is this the latest version?

Go to js/smooth-scroll.js and find:

jQuery("a[href*=#]").on('click', function() {
      var scrollTarget = jQuery(this.hash).offset().top;

replace it with

jQuery("a[href*=#]").on('click', function(e) {
      var scrollTarget = jQuery(this.hash).offset().top;
      if(scrollTarget) e.preventDefault();

this should’ve been fixed since the latest release, please update your theme

Hi, another question: is it possible to add a link to the text in the portfolio short code? Thank you.

FinalDestiny

Hmm, you can try adding the html code directly in the text in the shortcode…but make sure you use single quotes ’ instead of double if you’ll use the double ones on the shortcode attributes

I have reinstalled the theme from scratch, but for some reason when you navigate down from the top main navigation bar, there is a brief flash of white before you actually scroll down. On other people’s sites listed here, you just see a smooth transition. Why is this happening with mine? www.brightlobe.com

go to js/contact-form.js and find:

jQuery("a[href*=#]").on('click', function() {
      var scrollTarget = jQuery(this.hash).offset().top;

replace it with

      var scrollTarget = jQuery(this.hash).offset().top;
      if(scrollTarget) e.preventDefault();

Also I followed your .js script advice that you gave to BJBusch84 above and it still doesn’t work: a blink is the best way to describe it and it really impedes the user experience on this theme. Help would be very much appreciated!

Hy, i really like your theme but i want to know a few things before buying. Can i embed soundcloud player? can i embed videos ? put them maybe in a slider or something?

thanks, Cosmin

FinalDestiny

in a slider no, but you can embed anything you want since the theme just outputs the content on the homepage(including shortcodes, html tags, etc)
