I bought this theme and it won’t install. I’m reading the instructions and tried both ways, thru the back end of WP and thru FTP . I get the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_theme() in /home/musclebe/public_html/manzzle2/dress/wp-content/themes/andante/admin/library/options.php on line 93

I deleted the theme from the server manually and I was able to access the site again.

I’m currently hosting with www.site5.com

I’m using WP 3 .4.1

Hello, that’s strange because from the error it looks like you’re not using WP 3 .4+. Was it an existing WP installation or a fresh new one? Thank you

Hi I just recently purchase this theme, but am frustrated because I really need the sliding images to be linkable, is there a way to enable this?

I’ll make this change in the next hours, please hold on.

I have recently purchased & installed this theme for personal use & was disappointed with the amount of Styling customization offered as well as i have been seeing coding errors pop up on my homepage non-stop since activating :/

Currently the error reads –
Warning: include() [function.include]: Filename cannot be empty in /hermes/bosweb/web134/b1347/'webserver'/wp-content/themes/andante/template-home.php on line 123

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '' for inclusion (include_path='/hermes/bosweb/web134/b1347/'webserver'/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-backup-to-dropbox/PEAR_Includes:.:/usr/local/lib/php-5.2.17/lib/php') in /hermes/bosweb/web134/b1347/ipg.ghartfcom/wp-content/themes/andante/template-home.php on line 123

The only reason i am slightly annoyed at this is because of this themes price – when i pay $40 for a premium theme i expect first off there there are ZERO errors with the theme & its coding. Second, i expect that if i am given an ‘Admin Panel’ it include not just 4 color styling options. I want to customize ALL the colors that go into the theme if i have chosen ‘Custom Color Scheme’. If you could assist me with the code error that would also be greatly appreciated.

Finally – The main homepage slider positions all images to the left hand side of the window. Is there any way to have it center the image if the resolution is only lets say 450×300?

This is all constructive criticism aimed to help you create better polished themes and i look forward to see how you continually develop & improve this theme!

Hi GFargo, I always accept criticism to improve things, let’s analyze the situation.

About the PHP include warnings it looks like there is a folder using single quotes /.../’webserver’/wp-content/ causing problems, can you please confirm? I also see a reference to a dropbox plugin which might be interferring, as a test please try to disable it.

The customizable colors feature – as it is now – allows to completely change the look and feel of your website: background color+image, logo and tagline, body, links and buttons. There could be more, but they are enough. Please let me know what options you would like to add, and I’ll try to help.

The homepage slider uses Flexslider and by default it aligns to the left because images can have different widths/heights. However, I do not recommend it since the page will “jump” for the different sizes. Instead, it is highly recommended to use images of the same size. In your case I’d consider using a transparent PNG with the smaller centered image.

About the prices set by Envato I personally think they are ultra reasonable, and the quality is not necessarily in the amount of customizable colors. For example, this theme has an option to fix the blurry logos on retina display, which is a little important thing often forgot.

Please let me know and thank you!

I’ve sent you an email to discuss this further, but I’ve tried disabling Wordpress Dropbox Backup :/ Still receive some errors

Warning: include() [function.include]: Filename cannot be empty in /hermes/bosweb/web134/b1347/'Server'/wp-content/themes/andante/template-home.php on line 123

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php-5.2.17/lib/php') in /hermes/bosweb/web134/b1347/'Server'/wp-content/themes/andante/template-home.php on line 123
Note: ‘Server’ is my personal replacement to where it normally would list some of my server credentials.

Anywho – getting rid of these errors is my main concern at this point :/ & i do understand that its impossible to predict how the theme will interact with all the various server configs out there. I really appreciate your rapid response and eagerness to help! :)

As for additions to the color styling options – The OnHover effect for portfolio boxes, currently is set to become darker when the mouse hovers – There a way to change the color that appears for this on hover?

Another suggestion for the Admin panel would be integrated google Fonts. This would allow me to choose which google font i wanted to apply to which header, or body tag.

Thanks again for the rapid response! Can’t wait to get it up and running :)!

No problem, I’m always available for support! :)

About the include error I’ve sent you an email.

The hover effect only animates the transparency, it doesn’t change the color. However, if you can do CSS go to Theme Options > Custom Code and you can easily add custom styles without altering theme files.

The Google Fonts feature is something I already considered for future themes, but of course it’s not as easy as it sounds. Besides that, Andante was designed with that font in mind and it doesn’t advertise so.

Please let me know if you have any other issues.

Is it possible to assign a different background image for each different page of the website?

thanks,

Hello Pat, at the moment it’s not possible but it’s something I plan to add in the next updates.

Gyo,

Seems like one of my js files is off.. The featured projects resizes strangely. it constrains it. It looks like the sample online that you have just starts cropping the image. I would rather have that happen of possible. Let me know.

Thanks,

Ben

Hi Ben,

I’m not sure I understand, but send me a private message with more details so we can sort it out!

HI, I just bought your template and there is something I can’t figure …. On YOUR template, when I reduce the size of the brownser, the images of the projects become square and a reframed. On my website, they become square but instead of being reframed, they are just squizzed, I mean, distorted. Is there a parameter I might have changed ?

You can see what I mean on this link: http://theatreopsis.org/test/exemple1.png

Thanks in advance !

Hello photoman6300, this issue was fixed in a recent bugfix release, can you please re-download and update the theme? Let me know! :)

Thank you, Gyo

Thanks Gyo,

You were right, I didn’t have the last version of the CSS . I downloaded it and did the changes ! Thanks.

I bought it 2 days ago !!! WAs the update in between ? If yes, does this update concern the CSS file ? Just for me to be sure and do not loose anything ! Thks.

gyo
gyo Author

I think it’s better to update the theme to be sure. Before doing that, you might transfer the changes from the CSS file to Theme Options > Custom Code so that you won’t lose them with the updates. If you made a lot of changes and need help send me the file in private and I’ll give it a look. Thank you

Hi Gyo,

Is there a way to add a link directly to the image of the “feature” section ? I see I can add a link through the text box, but it would be much more “sexy” if the link would be embeded with the image, and then avoid to have useless text in that section.

Can you help with that ?

gyo
gyo Author

Hello Photoman6300, unfortunately you can’t change the default links of the featured items, because they’re meant to link to the details page just like standard blog posts. This depends also on the Enlarge Featured Image option in the portfolio items. The best solution would be as you said, by adding links/buttons in the excerpt.

Let me know if you need more help!

Hi Gyo,

Thanks for your answer, but I think I was not clear enough, I was talking about the “Feature Box” ! Here is a link to what I did, http://theatreopsis.org/fr and I was wondering if I could have only the icons linking to some pages, and no text at all ???

Thanks for helping

Hello! Now I understand :)

I’ve added this feature in the Theme Options > Home Settings, the updated theme will be available in the next hours but – if you prefer – send me a private message so I’ll send it directly to you.

Thank you

Grazie Mille Gyo !!! ;-)

Next thing … I think there is a bug ?!

It’s easier to show it to you than to explain it, you can see it there: http://theatreopsis.org/fr/index.php/portfolio/bar/

As you can see, ythe texte is duplicated in White. I’ve configured it to be black. The reason why I think it’s a bug is because it only does it if I make a video “project”. As you can see on other photo-projects on my site, everything is fine ! Are you aware of that ? Any idea ???

Thanks ….

I’ve just sent you an email, the bug is fixed and I’ve also added 2 more widgets areas above the footer and below the home slideshow. :)

Hi, I have a client who is interested in this theme.

1) Is it responsive as far as looking good on phones, ipads etc? 2) Have you had any success with using MP3 plugins with this theme?

Thanks

Hi Teri7,

The layout is totally responsive, from desktop to mobile devices. Try it on an iPhone/iPad or resize the browser window to see the differences. It should work with any plugins, so you’re free to install the ones you prefer.

And in case you have issues I’ll support you.

Thank you

Hi Gyo,

Does the theme supports Cyrillic alphabet?

Thank you!

Hello, yes that’s possible. Wordpress themes can be translated using any characters set.

Thank you

Hi, Just a quick question: Is the size of the slider adjustable. In other words can we make it a different height? Thanks. Have a client interested in your theme, but wanted to check that this is an easy fix. Thanks,

gyo
gyo Author

Hi Teri, that’s definitely possible. You can set different heights for each image (although it’s better to keep them consistent). :)

Will there be instructions available on that. Different themes work differently I’ve found, so just checking that I will be able to find that information once the theme is purchased? Thanks!

It’s very easy: from the admin you just upload images to the sliders and the theme does the rest. Besides that, you can always count on my support. Thank you

Can I embed a youtube or vimeo video on the homepage?

Hello, you can use the widget areas in the homepage to display any kind of custom content. Thank you!

davutor

Sorry Gyo, I was not clear. What I am wondering is, if I can embed a youtube or vimeo video where the slider is at. and just to make sure. I could make the background black, correct…

Thank you for the fast response

gyo
gyo Author

I had the feeling I didn’t get something… :) Anyways, the home slider only supports images so unfortunately you can’t place videos. However – if you think it makes sense – using the widget areas gives many alternatives. Thank you

Hi, How can I slow down the slider speed?

Thanks!

gyo

To slow down the slider speed you should edit the file js/script.js around line 41 and change the parameter slideshowSpeed: 4000 to any value (in milliseconds).

Thank you! :)
