For some reason a title for the first slider is showing up outside of the designated area, on the far right. I don’t recall doing anything to make this happen, and didn’t notice it until today. I have had this site for about 2 weeks and have been working on it. Please let me know if there is some setting that I need to adjust on the site.

Here is a link to the site under development: http://vinoequipment.com/

Thanks.

Hi, That was bug in version 1.0. Please update theme and it will be fixed.

Default-user

Can you tell me how I can update the theme? I just bought this theme 1 week ago.

Default-user

Is this another problem with this theme? http://vinoequipment.com/?page_id=15

All I was doing was creating a new gallery item.

pixel-industry

Download theme from ThemeForest again and overwrite the theme files. What do you mean on, as I can see everything is working fine.

Default-user

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-3951507-alexx-multipurpose-wordpress-theme(1).zip

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Default-user

Got any advice? The theme zip file has style.css in the zip file I redownloaded.

pixel-industry

You need to delete old theme and install updated version, or use FTP to replace all theme files. Follow FAQ for installing theme.

Default-user

OK… I updated the files and the text is gone on the slide show. Now the slide show doesn’t work.

pixel-industry

We made some slider changes in theme update and made mistake in slider script. To fix it open “content-slider.php” file and replace line 64: ‘manualAdvance’: true, with this: ‘manualAdvance’: <?php echo $manualAdvance ?>, This bug will be fixed in next few days.

Default-user

Thanks. Is this something I am going to have to worry about in the future? Is my site going to break because you guys are continuing to make updates?

pixel-industry

We are fixing bugs in updates and sometimes we add some new functionality. This problem left unseen but this is really rare.

Forgive me for asking if I missed this. How do I get my portfolio section to display on the front page. I may have missed it in my reading of the instructions.

Looking to display the portfolio on my front page the way it is displayed in the demo.

Thank you.

pixel-industry

Hi, You need to generate Portfolio box shortcode. Check in docs how to use it: Section Shortcodes -> Theme Special, and find Portfolio box.

I think that is the problem I am having. using the [portfolio_box] doesn’t seem to be rendering anyway even though I have four established portfolio items. Could I be doing something wrong in there?

Hi, Ii need your help to know how I can add new post format to have new icon on the red bar on the top left of the image. In your template I can choose category photo or video, but I need more then that. I see you can put more options like text or audio but I cannot find where I can use them or add new one. One more thing, please: in “creating new article” there is the option to choose the icon to associate to that post, but if I do it, I cannot see it anywhere. Where is my mistake? Thanks a lot!

pixel-industry

Hi, You can add more post formats but it requires coding. Read here how it works. Adding icon to post had slight problem, it will fixed in a day or two and theme will be updated. You can contact me through email and i will send you fixed file if you don’t want to wait theme update.

Hello.

Great Theme.

I have read in your theme description that there is “Theme’s Admin panel”.

I might have done something wrong, but I can’t actually find it. Where should it be located.

Many thanks (can’t wait to work on your theme)

pixel-industry

hi, Admin panel is in Appearance -> Theme options.

Minimic1 Purchased
Thank you for your quick reply.

I made a mistake, I knew about the admin panel… it’s the “extensive documentation” I’m looking for (to better understand and use all the customization options/ functions)

pixel-industry

Documentation is in “Documentation” folder in Download.zip file your downloaded from ThemeForest. Open “index.html” file with your browser and search through sections for information you need.

Super. Found it. Thx.

One last question before a while (I will go through all the steps required to build my site and might come back at the end of the week, just before launching, with a list of questions – if I have any – so I won’t be disturbing you too many times), I would like to change the colour of the arrows in the home page slider.

I have read in one of the previous answers posted here, that you suggest we go in the CSS.

Which CSS folder should I work in and at approximately which line number?

Thanks again.

pixel-industry

Hi, You can found slider arrows in Alexx/img/slider/. They are called “arrow-left.png” and “arrow-right.png”. Use photo editor to change their color and replace them after that.

I’ve got a custom homepage. Know I want a page with all blog items. How can I do that?

And I saw a bug: If I edit a page and click the shortcode button. A lightbox appears (thats good) but if I close the lightbox I see different preview images under the WordPress Admin pannel

pixel-industry

Hi, You need to create new page and name it like you wish e.g. Blog, then go to Settings -> Reading and set that page in “Posts Page”.

Regarding bug, we are aware that some of images appears after window is closed. This will be fixed in a day or two.

Hi, I downloaded the new version to use video in portfolio but it does NOT work. I checked “use video”, paste the YouTube address in video code, but the page shows only the load animation and a ? on the back. Maybe I paste in a wrong way the code from YouTube?

Hi, Are you sure that you update theme right because updated version doesn’t have “use video” checkbox.

Excellent theme. Just purchased and installed in new WP site. Can you please tell me how to do 2 things: 1) change the red background color in the

    Hi, Thank you purchasing theme.
    1) You can change color with in Theme options, section Appearance or in style.css, line 455.
    2) Open content-slider.php file and at the end find slider script like this:
    jQuery('#slider').nivoSlider({
                'effect' : 'fade',
                'manualAdvance': <?php echo $manualAdvance ?>,

                'pauseOnHover': <?php echo $hideCaption ?>,
                'pauseTime': <?php echo $pauseTime ?>,
                'startSlide': <?php echo $first_slide ?>            
            });
    

    Add ‘effect’ : ‘fade’ like we did. Check all available effects here

    Hey everything is working great, but how do I change the speed of the testimonials? Like the transition speed between each testimonials. Please get back to me ASAP

    pixel-industry
    We slow down a bit testimonials in theme v.1.1 but if you need more, open Alexx/inc/shortcodes.php. Go to “Testimonials carousel” section and find and find script:
    auto: {play: true, timeoutDuration: 5000},
    

    Change timeoutDuration to desired value. Value is in milliseconds.

    I am having trouble getting the Gallery to behave like I want it to. I want my gallery to behave like this example, http://themeforest.net/item/alexx-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/3951507

    I have tried to create a couple galleries and I cannot figure out how I can make my gallery work like the above example:

    Failed attempt 1: http://vinoequipment.com/?pi_gallery=craftsmanship

    Failed attempt 2: http://vinoequipment.com/?page_id=13 (I think this one is more of a portfolio page)

    Can you please tell me what I can do to make a gallery like the first link above?

    Thanks!

    Hi, Can you give direct link to example (without iframe). Use “Remove Frame” link to close frame.

    Sorry, I don’t understand what you are saying. Where do I use “Remove Frame”? I don’t know of any iframes on this site.

    pixel-industry
    When you open this link: http://themeforest.net/item/alexx-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/3951507

    First click above on the “Remove Frame” and then copy address example page you want to show us.

    Hi, Server was down almost 24h. You can try now, it’s up and running.

    pixel-industry

    You need to create page and name it for example “Gallery”. Then set “Gallery” Template (in Page Attributes box below Publish box on the right). Add created page to menu and it will show you latest gallery images.

    Can I have more than one gallery? Because this following page layout is what appears to be what I think I did from your last instructions above, but is layed out differently. Thanks! http://vinoequipment.com/?pi_gallery=craftsmanship
    pixel-industry

    You can have more galleries. Just create more pages with template “Gallery”. You you didn’t set something right because above gallery is rendered as post type not Gallery type.

    Default-user

    Sorry to keep bugging you, but I think I am going in circles with this gallery posting. I am not getting to a point that it makes any sense at all. Everything seems very messed up and I cannot get this straight.

    I want to make a page that has a specific filter for a gallery, “craftsmanship” in one gallery, and then the rest of the photos that I have in various categories in another gallery. I was able to start another “Page”, then assign “Gallery” template to the page.

    1. How do I filter specific category photos to display in a Gallery?

    2. You say to make a Page in the “Page” section and then assign the “Gallery” template. What good is the Gallery section? Isn’t this where you make galleries?

    3. Am I supposed to be uploading photos through the “Portfolio” link, to make a Galllery? I made the above gallery through the gallery link, (http://vinoequipment.com/?pi_gallery=craftsmanship). It doesn’t make any sense why a Gallery is a posting.

    Thanks, Tom

    Hi there!

    First of all, superb theme!

    I do have a question however, namely: How do i order my slides. At this point it seems that – after the first slide, it just picks whatever it likes. I played around with the creation date, slide name, the IDs… But it keeps displaying the slides in it’s own order.

    All help would be welcome!

    Thanks in advance,

    pixel-industry
    Hi, Slider currently sort slides by ‘menu order’. You can change this in content-slider.php on line 19 like this:
    $args = array('post_type' => 'slider', 'posts_per_page' => -1, 'post__in' => $include_posts, 'post__not_in' => $exclude_posts, 'orderby' => 'date', 'order' => 'DESC');
    

    Note that we added ‘orderby’ and ‘order’ parameters. Now they are sorting by date, showing first latest slide. Read here which attributes you can use except this.
    Default-user

    Great! Now, one more… How do I lenghten the slide duration of the ‘single’ portfolio images?

    pixel-industry
    Open single-pi_portfolio.php file and at the end there is script like below:
    jQuery('#slider1').nivoSlider();
    
    Change it to this:
    jQuery('#slider1').nivoSlider({pauseTime: 3000});
    
    Set value of “pauseTime” as you wish. Time is in milliseconds.
    Default-user

    Perfect! Thanks!

    Hi. I wish you the “button shortcode” link is opened in a new tab (target = “_blank”). How to do it?

    pixel-industry
    You can set for all buttons to open in new tab/window by changing line 269 in Alexx/inc/shortcodes.php file to this:
    return '<a href="' . $url . '" class="btn-' . $size . ' style-color" target="_BLANK"><span>' . $content . '</span></a>';
    
    I recommend you to wait a day or two for theme update when this options will be added in button shortcode.

    Lovely theme! It might really suit my needs as I’ve just finished one company’s logo using Lobster font – it might really go well together!

    However, one question: is there any chance I could easily drop the main menu down a bit, center is and put logo in the top center?

    If it’s too difficult I’d just leave it as it is.
