Hi,

Let me start by saying that your theme is really awesome! :)

That been said, I’m trying to make small changes to your theme using a child-theme, but your functions.php file doesn’t support child-themes very well.

Will it be possible to make a new version that will encapsulate all your functions with function_exsits, like this:

if ( ! function_exists( 'theme_special_nav' ) ) { function theme_special_nav() { // Do something. } }

and change your includes to require_once?

By doing that we can make changes to your theme by using a child-theme, and make updating your theme easy and smooth. :)

Thanks and marry x-mas! PiTZiK.

Hi!

Happy new year! When i try to translate language files by codestyling localization extension it gives the following error:

“Error: The actual loaded translation content does not match the textdomain: color-theme-framework Expect, that any text you translate will not occure as long as the textdomain is mismatching! This is a coding issue at the source files you try to translate, please contact the original Author and explain this mismatch.”

Also regarding child theme support. The “Accord Options” does not seem to work properly. Adding more to Pitzik’s request.

Great theme!

Hi,

1. This problem does not occur for me.

- which version of the plugin you are using? (update to the latest version, if needed)
- show me a screenshot with this error
- try to rescan theme files for your language

2. Will be in the next update.

Thanks and Happy new year! :)

Hi,

I’m having issues with language translation. I downloaded Codestyling localization and installed zH_HK. I followed the steps in your video: Rescan and Edit, then I changed a few texts like Category Posts Notification, Category, Posts, and others. I went back to my site and reloaded, but nothing changed. I’m using WP 3.5.

Thanks so much and excellent theme!

Hi,

Ensure your WordPress language is set to your language in wp-config.php. It may already be set, or maybe still the default (ie. US English).

A line like define (‘WPLANG’, ”) will need to be changed to your language, for example (‘WPLANG’, ‘zh_HK’);

See this WordPress page for a full language list.

Hey Zerge,

Another question: I changed the settings to load date as 29/12/2012, but it still showing up as December 29th, 2012.

Do you know how I can fix this?

Thanks

In the file index-loop.php replace:

the_time('F d, Y');

with

echo esc_attr( get_the_date() );

Hi, I would like to ask if the page width can be adjusted to 960px easily and also control how many columns per page and sidebar width. Are all these configurable via custom css easily?

ZERGE

Hi,

Thanks for interest in our theme.
Yes, you can change all this things easily.

Hi, how about the category pages, can that be the same as the front page, say I select to show 2 columns + 1 side bar for entire site?

Default-user

I don’t see the options in the theme options. Can you confirm again changing 3 columns to 2 columns + sidebar is just a one liner simple change or would there be quite a few adjustments?

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

1. For the category pages you need to make some changes in the category template file – to get 2 columns + 1 sidebar.

2. It can be changed in the style.css

Ok, I am deciding between hoarder and this. Is there anyway to put featured posts all the way to the top in front page (i.e. sticky)?

Yes.

Ok, just bought and figured out the sticky post issue. Pls let me know:

1) Where to adjust to 960px max width 2) I am using 2 column + 1 side bar on front page. How can I reduce the spacing between the columns and sidebar to zero or smaller? 3) Also the code to change for the category page for 2 column + 1 side bar.

Hello, I noticed that a home-big and the home-small page templates display each post’s full content on the main page while the home-sidebar displays excerpts only.

How can I set all 3 home-page templates to display the excerpt style and NOT full content? NOTE: Accord Options->Blog Options->Use Excerpt or Content Function? is set to excerpt and NOT content

Thanks very much.

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Hi,

Try to replace in the template-home-small.php and template-home-big.php:

global $more;
$more = 0;
the_content('',TRUE,''); 

with

global $more, $data;
$more = 0;

$use_excerpt = stripslashes( $data['accord_excerpt_function'] );

if ( $use_excerpt == 'Content' ) {    
   the_content('',TRUE,'');
} else {
   the_excerpt(); 
}

Thanks Serge! That worked like a charm. Does Accord have the admin bar removed BTW?

ZERGE

Replace in the functions.php:

add_filter('show_admin_bar', '__return_false');

with

if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) {
    add_filter('show_admin_bar', '__return_false');
}

Hello Serge,

If we make changes to the theme php files, how do we update our theme when you have updates?

How do we update the theme also?

lastly, how do we know if our theme needs to be updated? will you email people? does it show in our admin panel? other.

Hello Serge, Thanks for all your great support. The theme has really increased visits on mobile devices over the last few weeks which is great…

Can you tell me how to change the following things? 1- The social links at the top of the homepage. How do I make them open in a new window. I don’t want people leaving my site when they click on those.

2- On the homepage- where do I change the color and size of font of the titles just below the each thumbnail. Kind of like this.

http://www.elegantthemes.com/demo/?theme=TheStyle

3- The carousel. How do i change the dimensions of the images thumbnails in the carousel. I wouuld like them to be bigger and rectangular rather than square..

-Thanks A bunch…

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Hi,

1. Just add “target” attribute for links. For example – http://d.pr/i/zsau

In the header.php.

2. Just add to the style.css properties for #blog-entry .post-entry h2:
#blog-entry .post-entry h2 { 
color:#333;
font-size: 14px; 
}

3. For this you would need to modify the theme files (\functions\accord-carousel-widget.php), a task for a developer.

annieandre

Thanks those all worked. How do i change the background colour of just the blog entry h2 area too?

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Do you mean background colour under the post title?

annieandre

yes background colour just for title post area. not the excerpt from the post.

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Just add background-color property, for example:

#blog-entry .post-entry h2 { 
color:#333;
font-size: 14px; 
background-color: red;
}
annieandre

Thanks That was easy

Zerge, What is the widget “single post widget” for. I see it in my admin but where does it show up? The “side bar widget” is showing up on all single post pages and on all pages i create.

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Hi,

This widget area appears in the post page (on the left, if the post page with two sidebars). For example – http://wp.color-theme.com/accord/handcrafted-oak-chateau/ (Related Posts, Popular Posts by Views, etc.)

annieandre

Thanks. no wonder i didn’t see it.. New question. How do I make the homepage use the “BIG POST” layout WITH a side bar? and…. make the side bar big enough to hold ads of the size 300×250. this would be great to add for an update I think because this allows me to work with banner advertisers.

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Just change width for #blog-entry .post-entry {} in the style.css

annieandre

Hi Zerge, i tried that but it did not work. What I wold like to do is ues the BIG BLOG POST template which has 2 columns not 3 like the default. BUT… the BIG BLOG POST does not have side bar. How do i add side bar to the big blog post?

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Hi,

1. Use template “Home + Sidebar”

2. Change width for #blog-entry .post-entry {} in the style.css. For example:

#blog-entry .post-entry { width: 382px; }

annieandre

there are a lot of places in css to change the blog-entry. which one do i change? all of them. Also, the HOME + side bar still has 3 column. I just want two columns plus side bar.

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Only one place http://d.pr/i/WzWS

annieandre

Hi Zerge thanks for the last visual. The code you showed me works for the homepage content but…... it didn’t change the sidebar widget size. Can you tell me how to also change the widget sidebar size. ? It’ needs to be wide enough to accept banner ads 320×250..

Thanks Zerge,

Hi,

Try to make the following changes http://d.pr/i/9Azq

annieandre

Serge, i change the span cod in the index.php file but that pushed the side bar down below the content..

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

It means you don’t change the span also for content. Content (span8) + Sidebar (span4) = should be in sum span12, always. For example, span7 + span5, etc.

annieandre

i changed both span as you showed me in the image to = 12. i.e. span 8 & span 4. but it still pushed the side bar down. Am i supposed to do it in the index.php file or some other file?

annieandre

Zerge, i got it to work. I was only changing the spans in one place but found that there was another set of span to change.. I think you should add this feature to your next update. to sell banner ads the template needs a wider side bar..

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Yep :)

Hi again zerge. it all looks good but why do the photos all align to the left and do not fill the frame anymore.. you can see what i mean by going to my site http://www.annieandre.com

Hi guys. I am trying to use ubermenu on this theme. Mainly because I would like to change the mobile dropdown menu format. The plugin seems to work on desktops. But on mobile the theme’s drop down menu is still showing. Has anyone integrated Ubermenu with this theme? If not, is there a way to disable the mobile drop menu?
