One last issue that I hope is resolved is that you utilized h1 tags throughout the entire theme. Search and usability best practices are that you only have a single h1 tag per page (typically the company name or main title) and then you have h2’s and h3’s for the next most important elements (slides, page headings), then h4, h5, h6 beyond (blog post titles). Would be great if you optimized those headings throughout the theme!
Again – just nitpicking… it’s a fantastic theme.
Most of the h1’s you see are in the actual page content, you can change them in your own.
If really doesn’t make much difference though, Google ranks for content, quality, relevance, load time, https…
If you want a proper SEO theme, checkout my AvantGarde theme – Rich Snippets, Microformats, HTML & CSS minification for page speed
I did build a child theme that modified the tagging appropriately, I’m just encouraging best practices in this theme as well. Love some of the minification work you’re doing!
Yeah I understand. They may find their way into an update
Hello- I was trying to get the maps to work. I saw in another post that directions were in the documents file but I have not been able to find it in there. Could you please give e directions on how to get that function to work.
Actually it seams that I am missing a couple of things.. the contact function doesn’t seam to work. I only have one template. It is like i am missing some short code or something.
There is only one template, for the single page.
[contact-form email=”email@example.com” zip=”sw1w9tq”]
What about the map?
The shortcode controls both, that’s what the zip parameter is for.
I am not able to get any short codes to work… the only thing that shows up is the actual text of the shot code.
You must have an issue on your server or install.
I’d suggest reinstalling a fresh copy of WordPress and use the sample.xml file included with the theme as outlined in the Docs.
I don’t have access to the documents and that you say are outlined they are not in the file that I got from theme forest.
You need to ACTUALLY unzip the downloaded folder from Themeforest.
Inside that folder, you will see: http://drp.ikreativ.com/image/3g033A0E0j2f
Unzip the Documentation folder and double click on index.html then you will see this in your browser: http://drp.ikreativ.com/image/2H453r3A0q41
Sorry that file just says index so I thought that was just the link to your page… So I got it to work on another server and domain (I am doing this for a friend) So I think there is a wordpress upload issues (I don;t have access to that) but how do I change the contact form and map. Do I have to go into the theme itself?
If you have a WordPress upload issue, it’s probably permissions on the server.
Depends on what you want to change? If you’re changing the fields then yes.
I need to change the address for the maps and the get text in the contact fields. my trial site is at www.healthydoesntsuck.com
Another quick question… All tour style sheets for the themes are linked to your website and they are not maintained in the theme? What if your site is down. Also your contact box you can not see the fields nor what to put in the fields…. You can not see the submit button until you hover over it. Last how is anyone supposed to change the address on the map?
The address is passed in via the zip parameter in the shortcode.
To change the contact fields you’ll need to modify the shortcode file, functions/fn.shortcodes.php
The stylesheets are part of the theme not my site: http://drp.ikreativ.com/image/2M423B0x2L1w
I need to change the colors.. If you go to the site then you can’t see any text for what is supposed to be in the fields nor the submit button.. Then can I put the map to an address or is the zip code the closest to the address I can get?
I figured out how to tighten up the address but I need to be able to see text on the contact fields and the submit button.
That’s because you’re missing a div.
Either wrap the contact shortcode in a div with class=”dark section”
Or modify application.css to suit your needs.
is this what I write to wrap it [ contact-form email=”saemamet” zip=”1639 Tatum street Charleston, sc 29412”] or do I need another id.. Im confused
sorry my code didn’t show the way I wrote it… the the short code then a closing end / because that doesn’t work here www.tradesmanbrewing.com
thanks for all your help
You dont need an ID.
I’d suggest importing the sample.xml file and it will set it up like the demo, all you need do then is change the content to your own.
That is going to overwrite what I already have why can’t you just give me the code to wrap the short code?
I just did.
Okay it doesnt work! then I put the div tag then the sort code then close the div tag and this is what I get at www.trademanbrewing.com
I can’t edit the permissions because I didn’t set up the wordpress in the first place and it isn’t my server.
Just edit the CSS to whatever colors you want.
It won’t let me edit the CSS at all.
Something is wrong with your install then. Either fix the install or edit the CSS file via FTP.
why won’t the short code wrap work on either site. and If I do get into the css via ftp at least you could give me a round about idea of what code to edit since I am assuming that the dark code should already be correct. and the install isn’t bad on both sites so what won’t the short code wrap work?
I don’t know why it doesn’t work on yours, no-one else has had any similar issue.
I’d need full access to your server to debug the issue.
Edit the CSS for the #contact div.
in what .css file am I supposed to find that?
These are all the CSS files that are associate with this theme! I have this on 2 sites one were everything is working fine and short code wrapping does not not work. I can not find the #contact div to find what .css background etc to change. I have pulled these open in dreamweaver so that I can modify the code and ftp it up. If your not going to tell me where to find it then give me my money back.
Also none should have to install the demo sites to set up the site. that is ridiculous and overwrites anything that is already there and many times there is a lot of stuff to get rid of.
Are you actually reading any of the comments I write?
The theme imports all of the CSS as stand-alone separate files instead of a single HUGE file for ease-of-use and speed. All of the CSS is then combined and minified at runtime, the correct way to load assets.
You don’t have to import the sample file, it’s optional, that just helps people with little knowledge to get everything running exactly like the demo.
If you don’t know what you’re doing I’d suggest hiring a developer that does.
If you would like a refund, contact Themeforest.
I have built multiple small websites and modified multiple wordpress sites and YES i have been reading your comments.. most of the time I have figured it out prior to your comment! Would you like me to copy all your code here for the application.css In the application.css there is nothing for #contact
This is what is in application.css
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6
nav#primary ul li
nav#primary ul li a
nav#primary ul li a:hover
I don’t see any matches to where I can change the background so a white text (which I can not also change for the contact form only) to show Up. I would be okay with just the map but I don’t see how to separate it.
As far as hiring someone else to fix this little issue that is what your “support” is supposed to help me with.
One more thing, remove the theme from one of those domains or you will need to purchase another license.
I am only testing it on the other domain but you still haven’t told me where in the above to modify my background?
“Support” is optional, not required.
Now we’ve got that out of the way.
From your wp-admin panel, in the left menu navigate to Appearance > Custom CSS.
That will open up the custom.css stylesheet for editing, in that box put the following.
Instead of messing with theme files, what we are doing here is simply overridding and attaching our CSS to your div.
If you don’t have to install your sample then at the minimum the background color of your content form should be a different color from the default text which is all that I am asking you to help me with here. your initial directions for the set up are not clear IE the file is called index and I have installed this on 2 separate servers to see what the issue is and this is the same. This is a function of your theme not me not understanding what you are saying (which is not clear to the average person who would use a wordpress site).
I did that here www.healthydoesntsuck.com and that didn’t work I even make the color #333333
Yes it did work: http://drp.ikreativ.com/image/010L133d290u
Sorry my history must be taking over when I say refresh… Thank you!
I would first like to say thank you for making such an awesome theme! I have customized it with all of my own photos and content following your instructions, however it seems that on certain screen sizes the content breaks the responsive nature and jumps down to another line. The two areas that this happens on is the services area and the team area.
Could you please advise?
Whats happening is because some of the content is longer it breaks the layout, as we’re creating for potentially 1000s of different scenarios we can’t really sell the theme with fixed heights.
Example: SEO SPECIALIST & CONTENT WRITER the word writer drops down as it wraps breaking the layout.
The easiest way to fix is figure out what the longest column is and set all the columns as that height.
Thank you for the quick reply! That solution fixed the team area but i’m still having an issue with the columns on the services area. Can’t seem to figure this one out.
Nevermind! Figured that one out
Cool. Same thing as the Services
Had to change position:absolute to position:relative for #wrapper in the custom CSS to make the scrollspy work in Firefox.
Can’t see that it should break other stuff (yet).
Yeah you should be OK.
For the contact for do you have a solution for adding a CAPTCHA? I am getting a lot of spam emails coming through.
There are loads on the internet with examples, try: https://www.phpcaptcha.org/
Hi,i was trying to translate the theme to spanish but the language folder is empty. There is no .po file for the theme?
You need to create your own .mo/.po files…
Not sure if this is a browser flaw, maybe someone fixed it – please let me know – anyone.
When loading our Agenci-based site on any iPhone 5 or 6 with iOS 8x, sometime during page load, the slider images are cut up, and the lower part – or all of the slider image disappears, leaving the footer layer in the slider area.
This does not happen on desktop browsers or Android devices (or even the Chrome browser on iOS), so I am assuming this is a Safari/iOS flaw, but since this is within our primary browser target group, we could really use a fix/hack if anyone else fixed this.
To reproduce: Try loading http://demo.lovethem.es/agenci/ on an iPhone 5 or 6 and note the grey / footer parts displaying in the slider area.

I was wondering if you might know what went wrong. I had this working well and then all of the sudden the drop down navigation menu for the mobile started showing up in the header menu. the logo in the same menu started over writing the menu and the slider images became smooched height wise.
I then uninstalled all plugins and deleted the theme, then reinstalled the theme and it did the same thing immediately.
the site is www.tradesmanbrewery.com
please help tell me what wrong?
Seems ok here… http://drp.ikreativ.com/image/3P471U1q0a2h
Hi there, purchased your theme. I can’t get the contact form to send to me. I put in code [contact-form email=”firstname.lastname@example.org” zip=”Milagro Marketing LLC”] in the contact page but still not working. Can you help me figure out why its not working. our webpage is www.milagromarketing.com
You’ve set it up right: http://drp.ikreativ.com/image/0h3r2E0z0a3j
Is it going to your SPAM folder? Are there any server errors? Is your webhost blocking the sending?
I checked my spam folder and there is nothing there. I don’t get any server errors as well. My emails work fine with everything else, just this one that we can’t get it to come in.
Have you checked your server logs?
I just logged in and checked and there are no errors in the server log
Really hard to say then. I tested the form an it said “Sent”, showing no errors, if there is nothing in the logs then its a tricky one.
Its only a simple PHP script. Try checking with your host, they may be blocking it.
Hi, out of the sudden the themes slider is making the images go out of proportion.
¿what to do?
I have no idea? Something must have changed.
it only happens in firefox
Well, you said it only just started doing it, so something must have changed.
I’ve been working on http://joselynnmaas.com/ and have a few questions, mostly with regards to the responsiveness of the site:
1. the scrolling images on the top of the site aren’t scaling correctly, is there a way I can fix them?
2. The logo is going over the drop down nav bar when in responsive mode, how do I correct this?
3. I believe this may relate to point 2 but on some desktop screens the logo is moving over the menu and there also appears to be extra padding below the menu. Is the logo too big?
4. I’m unable to get the “Health and Wellness” filter to work in the portfolio but I can’t see anything wrong with it, any suggestions?
Thank you for the lovely theme and your time in answering my questions.
1) They look fine here.
2) Again, looks fine: http://drp.ikreativ.com/image/2B2g2l3a1J1l Try making a little smaller.
3) As 2
4) Change to Health and see if that fixes.
This is what it looks like on my Blackberry, it’s also like this on iphones http://joselynnmaas.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/IMG_20150428_094816.png
The scroller image is stretched and the logo is over the navigation menu. Is there anything that can be done to fix both of those issues? I had tried changing the name to many different things non of them worked. I will try deleting the portfolio item and creating a new one.
Themes by their very nature can only do so much for you. If I made the sizes fixed people would complain.
Modify responsive.css to suit your needs for sizing.
Thank you. Changing the filter to Health worked to correct the filter problem. I’m having issue the the spacing under the h1 tags on this page http://joselynnmaas.com/portfolio/floral-fetish/ and the can’t get the image on the top of this page http://joselynnmaas.com/#about to center, any idea what’s causing these issues?
You’ve removed all the spacing by adding your own CSS, I can see you’ve styled h1.portfolio
You’ve got the image wrapped in p tags. You need to correctly use HTML.
I have not done either of those things.
All of the other portfolio’s are displaying correctly, and there is no difference in the text editor on this
I did not add p tags around the image you can see the code here http://joselynnmaas.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/no-p-tags.jpg
WordPress is auto adding them.
You’ll need to add your own HTML to style it how you want, this isn’t a theme issue.
