Forgive me if this is an obviously basic question. I purchased this Alterna theme (Version 1.0.0) the day it came out (02-08-13) and now I notice that there is an update Version 1.0.1. WordPress is not detecting that there is an update available for this theme, there-for it is not asking me to update like it does other plugin, themes, and newer version of WordPress. So, my question is, what is the best way to update this theme to a newer Version? – Thank You! & Nice Theme!

ThemeFocus

Hi, yes, today I found it. We used envato provide update plugin. Yesterday update v1.0.1 , I forgot upload auto update files so now auto check version still 1.0.0.

Just I had upload it , please waitting some hours will works.

Don’t worry , If you had add your user name and api throught Alterna Options setting will auto update. If you love the theme, don’t forget rate 5 star support us.If you have any suggest or question, just tell us.

Thanks.

Does this also come with sample data and sample page layouts so you can choose which one to start with to use for editing? For example, are the 6 homepage layouts on this demo and other pages on the demo included in the purchase of this theme?

ThemeFocus

Hi, we had provide demo content xml files and slider demo.You just import them and view them.Thanks.

Hey there! Purchased your theme and so far I am very happy with it. A lot of features! Nice! I do have a question about the history shortcut you have. on your demo it looks very neat with, but when I try it it turns out looking quite different, there is no circle at the end and the box does not connect directly with the horizontal lne, and the box with the description lacks a top border. How can I make it look as nice as yours? :-)

ThemeFocus
Hi, I had post history shortcode example for u, you can view it throught here : http://support.activetofocus.com/alterna/discussion/11/history-shortcode If you like the theme or our support, please give us 5 star support us. Thanks.

And another pretty noob question. I wondered how I could change the Link color in the header menu. I have a rather dark color as theme color and the link text in the drob down menu is black. How can I change it to a lighter color? And is there a possibility to change the search bar background?

ThemeFocus
Hi, about drop menu color and search bar colors, you can custom css for it throught alterna options -> custom css , then custom your site style. Here is css example with default color.
.alterna-nav-menu .sub-menu li a {
color: #242424;
}
.searchform #sf-s {
background: #323232;
}

Hello! Sorry for my verylate reply.My computer crashed down and I finally got hands on a laptop. Next week I am getting it back repaired and hopefully working again. Sure, I would love to write you a testimonial, where can I send it to?

And I have a couple of questions (yep, they never end): I visited a friend at work today andthey use IE 8 and can not update the browser until the IT guys decide to do it. So looking at it with IE 8 for example the logo is dislpayed bigger than it is supposed to be. With all the other browsers it looks justs fine.

And with the history shortcode the images are not being displayed with IE. Any ideas why and what I can do about it?

ThemeFocus

Can u send us your screenshot to support@activetofocus.com , here used IE8 looks ok.Thanks.

Great theme!

With regards to responsiveness, is it possible to keep the menu fully displayed when on an iPad/tablet, and switch to the pull-down menu only when on smartphones?

Most other responsive themes I’m reviewing typically keep the menu intact on the iPad and only switch to the pull-down on smartphones.

Thanks!

ThemeFocus

Hi, it’s possible. Because of our demo have many menu so that ipad vertically show hide menu. It’s just a responsive css about size : just setting (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 979px) tablet still keep menu will works. If you don’t know how to change, we will help u after buy it. very easy. Thanks.

Default-user

Perfect thx!

One more question – is it possible to switch out the social icons from a different set? I’d love to use the social buttons from this theme. Thx! :)

ThemeFocus

Hi, now used the social support retina so used it. If you had down these free socials we can help u change to it. We also looking for other more socials (retina support) for next update. Thanks.

Default-user

I’m in!!! Purchase #30!! This theme is awesome.. 100STARS!

Thanks for updating various requested features so fast too!

I would like to see this theme get up there with the most sold themes.. may take awhile but I believe it’s worthy. Look forward to seeing your bio on selling a million on Envato. And thanks for building with bootstrap, as I’m not too familiar with it, but using wordpress makes it easy for me to initially get a grasp on it, because I really do love it!

Thanks!

I have the same problem opencms, WordPress is not detecting that there is an update available, would be interesting to enable this option or indicate how to activate it. I am using wordpress 3.5.1.

Will download the new theme upgrade anyway.

ThemeFocus

Hi, you just open alterna options -> general -> Setting your TF user name and API will auto update, don’t need download. It’s very awesome envato plugin. Thanks.

Perfect, just as recommendation, in the General Settings add the button “Auto update” so the user can choose and know that change and improvement is the theme and display the famous “New Update”. Thanks for responding so quickly.

Hi

Just purchased theme, it looks great.

Just one thing, how difficult would it be to change how the custom menu widget looks? I thought the menu might have been like the Categories Menu on the Right hand Sidebar page.

That’s the look I usually go for the custom menu.

Cheers Pete

ThemeFocus

Do u like the custom menu widget looks like blog category style?

Default-user
Discpro Purchased

Yes I think that’s what I mean, like the Categories menu on this page: http://themes.activetofocus.com/alterna/demo/?page_id=326
