Hello,

I use the SEO Ultimate plugin. For some reason the plugin doesn’t recognise the URL’s contained within button short codes. As a result I cannot mask URL’s.

Is there any workaround to this?

SEO Ultimate seems to understand other URL’s.. just not the ones contained within the button short code with this theme.

Any help would be much appreciated.

ThemeBeans

Mhmm that’s interesting Irdeto; we’ll look into it to see what’s going on.

Hi, I was wondering if it’s possible to make the header widget larger (extend farther horizontally than halfway across the page). I tried to create a new widget area, as it says in the documentation, but it doesn’t work—it doesn’t give me any way to set conditions, just a blank page. Maybe I’m missing something?

Thanks, Bevin

ThemeBeans

Hey, when you click the Add New Widget Area button, name and save it, there’s a conditional meta box on that widget area’s page in the dashboard. You can select the pages and templates of where that widget area appears. The Widget Areas cannot be adjusted size wise from generating a new one. This functionality makes it so you can place different widgets on different pages.

Default-user

I’ve been searching for this-“a conditional meta box on that widget area’s page in the dashboard”-but I just can’t find it for some reason.

That’s not even my biggest concern though—I’ve been trying to add the internal sidebar to the blog page, and it won’t appear, even when I change the template to “default, left sidebar” or “default, right sidebar.” It will appear on other pages that are not the blog page, but I don’t need it there. Is there a way to change this?

ThemeBeans

Let me explain better. The widget areas are generated (like this custom one here: http://thmbns.co/PDZu ) after you add one here: http://thmbns.co/PDsq. You can set what pages/templates they show up on when you’re creating the area.

The sidebar is not part of the blog index template by default. You would have to add the sidebar classes to the index.php and single.php files if you wanted a sidebar like on the default/left/right template files. You can use those files as a reference for what classes you need.

Cheers, Rich

Ok—re. the widget areas, that’s the process I’ve been following, over and over, but it never gives me any options to set pages for them to appear on (and would it give me an option for where on the page I want them to appear?) I see a column that says “condition(s)” once the widget area is created, but I can’t access it.

ThemeBeans

You’re not seeing this right here: http://thmbns.co/PE1c ? (With different pages of course)

If not, send us some login creds and I’ll drop in and see whats up – could possibly be a plugin conflict. support(at)themebeans(dot)com

What’s the simplest way to set a full-width header image behind the navigation bar, instead of a site name logo or icon or solid color? What file do I need to access or setting do I need to change?

ThemeBeans

Hey Killclick, you can add an image via CSS to the #header ID. Could either tie in BackStretch CSS or add these styles to the #header:

-webkit-background-size: cover; -moz-background-size: cover; -o-background-size: cover; background-size: cover;

ps: That’s how we did it with the 404 Page.

I posted this on Themebeans support just a few minutes ago, and found an old ticket with the same issue that had not been answered, so I’m republishing here because it is an important bug—i’m missing some serious functionality of the theme.

Hi, I can’t get a sidebar to show up on any style template. It’s a new install of wordpress and of acute.

I’m trying to get it to show up on the blog, but there doesn’t even appear to be an area for it. I’ve tried both templates for the blog page, neither works. I’ve tried editing widget areas, I’ve tried a bunch of stuff. I’m very familiar with wordpress and have set up more than 10 sites with wordpress based themes.

Please advise!

Caroline

ThemeBeans

Hey Killclick – as mentioned on the forums a couple of times, the sidebar is not included in the templates by default. There is the left/right templates for displaying page template content. To add these to the blog index page and single posts, it would require a little dev time to basically fuse the sidebar classes/columns from the left or right sidebar templates – to the index.php or single.php files.

Hi—Thanks so much for getting back to me. I’ve been thinking about this for a few days, and I have to say, the response of “you’ll need to do some development” is really both unexpected and..well..crappy.

If I had known that the sidebar shown on the demo’s archives page and contact page was not available to be used on the blog, I never would have bought this theme. It is a huge impediment.

I think you should release a supportive child theme that automatically adds the appropriate template options to support a sidebar, corresponding menu, and widget areas.

ThemeBeans

Sorry you feel that is “crappy” first off – the demo does not suggest or employ the sidebar capabilities on either the blog index page (blogroll) or the individual blog posts. I’m not sure we’re 100% on the same page here so let me try to explain some more.

1. There is a left & right sidebar template (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/PVJg ) where you can use for pages.

2. The sliding panel is opted in globally, on every page/post via the Theme Options Panel. (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/PWrl)

3. You do not need any additional development in order to use the sidebar templates for pages like these (just a couple):

-http://demo.themebeans.com/acute/archives/ -http://demo.themebeans.com/acute/contact/

4. If you want a sidebar (like on those pages) on the posts, you will need to add the sidebar in. On pages like these:

-http://demo.themebeans.com/acute/sony-shows-off-playstation-4-controller-details-the-hardware-inside/ -http://demo.themebeans.com/acute

Does that clear it up? It’s not too much work to add a default sidebar for those posts, but it has not been requested enough for a possible development/update in that matter.

I’m considering seriously to buy this them but the last message by killclick makes me hesitate as a sidebar is included in the demo and not in the theme itself… That’s a bit odd.

Further explanations would be appreciated.

Thanks!

ThemeBeans

Hey SylBou, I clarified a good bit – here’s a summary for you :)

1. There is a left & right sidebar template (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/PVJg ) where you can use for pages.

2. The sliding panel is opted in globally, on every page/post via the Theme Options Panel. (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/PWrl)

3. You do not need any additional development in order to use the sidebar templates for pages like these for example:

-http://demo.themebeans.com/acute/archives/ -http://demo.themebeans.com/acute/contact/

4. If you want a sidebar (like on those pages) on the posts, you will need to add the sidebar in. On pages like these:

-http://demo.themebeans.com/acute/sony-shows-off-playstation-4-controller-details-the-hardware-inside/ -http://demo.themebeans.com/acute

All in all, the demo is exactly what you get :)

There is sidebar functionalities just like in the online demo we provided.

Thanks for your reply Rich. I would like to ask you two questions considering this nice theme :

1. Does it support Child theme ? If not, what will happen if i update your theme and i’ve made changes in some php or css files ?

2. I’ve made a page speed test like someone else did and came with an average of 75%. Although it may be related to caching, i’d like to be sure this is the fact.

Thank you very much !

ThemeBeans

Yes, it does.

We’re tracking a 90% via Google PageSpeed Insights: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights#url=http_3A_2F_2Fdemo.themebeans.com_2Facute&mobile=false

- due to the typical things, such as @import for the custom font, not minimizing the CSS/JS and caching.

Default-user

I see. Caching could be done though right ? I’m not an expert, but woud like to know if that’s possible. Right now i use a Gavick free framework and use a google font. I’m using Cloudflare and a small caching plugin to achieve betters results. I’m getting an average 95% on GtMetrix with no issue of some sort. Thanks for you time :)

ThemeBeans

Yep it can. We don’t have caching turned on for the demo.

Default-user

Ok thank you very much.

ThemeBeans

No problem! Cheers!

Default-user

I’m charmed. Do you plan to keep your template updated for long ?The only downside is that i’ve passed so many hours configuring my present template that changing for another one breaks my heart. But i guess that’s part of life. :)

ThemeBeans

Yup, we plan on maintaining all our themes for quite some time – keeping them up to par with WordPress functionality.

Can you give me instructions on setting up a slideshow like the one shown in the theme? The instructions aren’t very clear, and I think that this feature would be very beneficial to my needs.

Thanks, and good work on an excellent theme.

ThemeBeans

Hey Agyei0, thank you! We’ll help you out here.

From the doc, it reads: To publish a gallery post format, upload as many photos as you’d prefer into the media uploader and DO NOT set a post featured image. If you do, it will override the gallery slideshow.

This means you simply select the Gallery Post Format radio button (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/PUh1 ), click the “Add Media” button (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/PUo4) and upload your images there.

Then hit the “Insert into Post” button (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/PUAC) and your images are automatically uploaded into the Gallery Post Format.

You don’t need to upload a featured image here, because the gallery takes the place of the feat image.

Does that clear it up some?

It worked! one thing though: i inserted it into the post, and the gallery slider came up, but so did the three pictures that i inserted in the post – they were in the slider and also in the post. I deleted them from the post after, but the slider was still working. is that how it’s supposed to work?

ThemeBeans

You don’t need to “check” the images, which would load them into your actual content page. Next time, just drag your images in, and click insert (no extra checks) and you’ll never see them :)

Rich

Default-user

Maybe I’m just a bit confused. You’ll pardon me, I’m not the best at Wordpress…I selected “Add Media” then dragged the files from my desktop into the window. They uploaded, and then there were the check marks on each file. When I “unchecked” them, I couldn’t insert into the post. is there a step I’m missing? The only reason it’s so important is that I’m going to have to show someone how to manage this site when I’m done on my end, so it’d be best to clarify as much as I can

ThemeBeans

Yes, that’s right. You don’t want to actually insert them into your post – just the slideshow. The words on the default WP button “Insert into Post” makes it a bit confusing. You still click that button, but don’t need to check the images – as they are already recorded.

I made a change to the CSS, but when I tried to undo it (by deleting the custom CSS, the fonts are still the same, even still showing the fonts i tried but didn’t want to go with in the CSS viewer in my browser). Can you help with this?

ThemeBeans

Did you make the changes to the Custom CSS Input via the Theme Options panel? Deleted, then saved?

Also make sure your browser has not cached the CSS.

Rich

Make sure the browser is not caching the CSS – that’s most likely what is happening (98% chance lol).

Is is possible to move the navigation beneath the logo in mobile view from the themes menu?

It’s possible with a little template editing (to remove the hide-for-small class) from that menu. By default your navigation elements are added to the header (triggered by a tap/click on the top bar icon).

I think there is a bug in the “pop-up shortcode”.

On my device (iPhone safari & chrome), it doesn’t display the content properly and cuts off the text.
