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! :)

My mistake, everything is fine right now.

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!

Thanks Zerge! It helped!

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

ZERGE

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

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

Default-user

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)?

ZERGE

Yes.

gliyaw Purchased

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.

Ok, I have sent additional notes with it. I hope to settle this issue today so that I can start working on my articles tomorrow. Thanks for your help!

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

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.

ZERGE

Hi,

All modified files listed in the file Changelog.txt, so you only need to replace files.

Information about a new version you can find

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…

annieandre

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

ZERGE

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

hi when i tried to install the theme. It gave me an error. please help. Thanks

ZERGE

Hi,

What the error? You must install theme from the file wp-accord.zip

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

Yep :)

annieandre

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

ZERGE

Just add to the style.css:

.single-media-thumb img { width: 100% }

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?

Hi. first, your themes looks good. can i change the themes to RTL ?

Yaniv

ZERGE

Hi Yaniv,

Thanks :)

Of course, you can use Accord theme with RTL languages.

Hello Zerge I use the infinite scroll plugin with your theme, but at the bottom of the website, the plugin hide the footer. see below http://riddimz.free.fr/agenda/footer-with-infinite-scroll.jpg

would you have a miracle solution ?

Greatingz

ZERGE

Hi,

It’s not better solution, but try to add to the style.css:
#blog-entry { margin-bottom:100px; }

Hi? Do this theme have the shortcode of “Sliders, Toggles, and Tabs?Fancy Boxes”?

ZERGE

Hi,

No.

Can this theme add News scroller like your another theme “Atlantic News – Responsive WordPress Magazine Blog”? and Do this theme have shortcode of “AUTHOR PROFILE” ?

ZERGE

No.

Hi, I use the facebook comments plugin, how do I remove the default “Comments re closed” box at the bottom of my post? See this url for an example, just scroll down to the bottom. http://ourblogabouteverything.com/cherokee-grill-in-gatlinburg-tn/

ZERGE

Hi,

Just remove from the content-single.php:

<div class="margin-30b" />

<div class="single-box-bg">                        
<div class="single-box-entry clearfix">
<?php comments_template(); ?>
</div>    <!-- /single-box-entry -->    
</div>    <!-- /single-box-bg -->
