When attempting to upload this file on Wordpress 3.42, through my Admin Dashboard, I was prompted with the notice that “Theme Install Failed: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

Hello, thanks for the purchase! I think you just need to extract the downloaded zip file on your computer, and you’ll find the actual theme file in theme/andante.zip.

Let me know, Gyo

Hi Gyo,

Considering purchasing. One question. Since I’m new to themes I want to know if it’s easy to add FB,Twitter buttons anywhere on the site i.e. top of page or footer etc. Can I choose button types too? Is this all normal stuff that’s easy to add on most WP themes?

Also I’m comparing your themes on my iPhone 4/iPad 2. Obviously they aren’t retina. I do have a 27” Thunderbolt display though so the images on this theme look great. With retina themes what are the main differences besides the HD images? Is there a special kind of font or something? For your themes that aren’t retina can they easily be made retina?

Thanks

Hello Tysun,

To add FB/Twitter share buttons you can easily install one of the many available plugins (both free and premium).

About retina displays, you can really see the difference by checking the logo, which is ultra sharp.

Thank you

Hi, Gyo…sorry, forgot a question. Would I be able to change your cascading menu to a wheel menu? Is that a control panel option or does that require a major rebuild? Thanks

gyo

Hi Tysun, the menu can’t be changed via control panel but it can easily be done by changing one PHP file. Just curious, what type of wheel menu? :)

Thank you

Gyo..like this

Your cascade

Wheel/Scroll menu

Actually, I’ll probably use your theme as is but just curious to know how difficult it is to change if I want. I can code a little but I’m by no means a programmer. Would this be difficult via PHP ?

Thanks

Hi Tysun, you could use something like flexnav, and it’s definitely possible with some skills. However I’m not sure it’s worth it because you’d need to hack a bit into the code (and lose these changes when updating to new versions of the theme).

Thank you

Ok thanks for that. Lastly, you mentioned that your logo was specifically for retina. Curious about the rest of the theme. Is it ALL retina? Does retina usually mean the main graphics and logo or does it always also include the body text as well? If I was to use my own logo what would I need to do to make sure I could match the same resolution quality? I will be using just a text logo as you can see here. creatifdesign.com. We will be rebuilding from that flash site to a WP site. Do I just make sure to keep the logo at 330 etc?

gyo
gyo Author

Basically you’ll need to provide 2 images of the logo, the standard size and another at doubled size. Only the logo is specifically optimized for retina displays, because blurry logos are ugly! :) The rest of the website depends on the size of the content you upload, larger images are generally better for it.

Thank you

Hi

Sorry to disturb you but I’m sort of panicking lol

I installed it but it’s just the blank default WP page. Maybe I am doing something wrong. I was expecting the stock/default theme to look like it does on themeforest. Should I be installing a dummy file or something?

Ah back to square one. I imported your dummy file. I can see a couple of images and thats about it. The site is all black. Could you please instruct me how to get me site looking exactly like Andante does on theme forest? That would be great. Thank you Gyo.

Hi Gyo

It’s been a long day. 4 hrs total talking to Hostgator etc. and hrs of troubleshooting.

I just want to do get Andante looking the way it does on themeforest and your site.

http://giordanopiazza.com/themes/andante_wp/

I thought that’s how it would look out of the box because when I have used other sites like TemplateMonster, the WP themes have all looked the same out of the box as they did on TemplateMonster.

My WP looks nothing like it does on themeforest even though Andante is activated in the Dashboard. http://creatifdesign.com

Please advise so I can either keep Andante or go with another theme so I can complete my work.

Thank you very much Gyo

Hi Tysun, no disturb at all! :)

After you install the theme you have to import the dummy data file, then you should follow the instructions found in the help file about how to create the home and blog pages.

That’s basically just creating 2 blank pages: Home (selecting the Homepage template) and the Blog (no template necessary). Then go to your Wordpress Settings > Reading and set those pages to Front page and Posts page

Please let me know if you need more assistance.

Thank you, Gyo

I got this

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/creatif/public_html/wp-content/themes/andante/template-home.php on line 74

That’s strange, please try going to Appearance > Theme Options and just press the save button. This to make sure the configuration is set.

In Theme Options > Home Settings check if the “Feature boxes” are empty, or disable them to test.

I suspect there is something incompatible with the template-home code. Something to do with the FEATURE ? I don’t know.

If you followed my instructions and it still doesn’t work, please try disabling any installed 3rd party plugins.

yes I click on off and still no luck. I have spent 24 hrs just to try to get a menu. Something in the template-home file I think.

Would it be possible for me to give you my FTP info and for you to simply upload everything as it is on your site. http://giordanopiazza.com/themes/andante_wp/

Then I can go in and change the media, and text and everything.

To customize the code requires some skills, what files did you change? Btw send me the credentials in private and I’ll be happy to set it up for you: http://themeforest.net/user/gyo

The problem was the installed Cache plugin, which was preventing the changes to be displayed on the website. After disabling it everything works fine, you can reactivate it when you’re done.

Hi,

A few questions: 1. Does this theme have any typography (font) options?

2. Is it possible to and change the background?

3. Possible to list several images in a row (downwards) rather than in a slideshow on the Portfolio detail page?

4. Possible to change the standard “More” + arrow button to “Read more” or something else?

Bug? There seems to be a bug when clicking an image i.e. “His Fingerprints” on the Portfolio page. The overlay view looks strange (1/8 detail not readable) and the close on X function not working. Is it possible to replace with Fancy Box plugin?

gyo
gyo Author

Hi mending,

1) Yes, by editing 2 files

2) Yes, through the Theme Options

3) Yes, you are totally free

4) Yes, by editing the language mo/po files

About the bug I can’t see it, what browser/OS are you using?

Thank you!

Default-user

Hi,

The bug is with Safari and Firefox on Mac. Only black background benhind the X close button is active to click and the 1/8 (black with white shadow) is unreadable.

1. Which two files needs editing and will you implement more fonts or font support later?

gyo
gyo Author

Hello, I’m double checking the issue you mention, thanks for reporting.

To change the font you need to edit the file functions.php at line 328, and the style.css at lines 72 and 484.

At the moment there aren’t plans to support fonts via admin for Andante – since it would require a major change – but it’s definitely something I’ll add in the next themes.

Thank you

Hi there! Very nice theme. What’s the easiest way to change the site-wide fonts? For example, you use Armata as the sitewide h font, but I would like to use a different font.

gyo
gyo Author

Hello icarusdjr, thanks for the purchase! To change the font you can edit the file functions.php at line 328, and the style.css at lines 72 and 484.

Let me know if you need more assistance, thank you.

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply. Let me try to be more clear about what I want to do. So I pretty much know how to edit the font, I just wanted to know if the Armata font is somehow packaged into the theme, and the browser pulls the font from the server? or is Armata a web font? Are there other fonts I can choose from that are web safe, yet not the standard Arial, Helvetica, etc. ?

Default-user

Nevermind, I found out how to do it by changing the code in Functions.php and the style.css using Google Web Fonts! Thanks for an awesome theme!

Hi,

Are you planning to add support for Facebook, Twitter and other Social icons in the top right corner as it is default on many other themes?

gyo
gyo Author

Hello,

Social icons are cool but not really a requirement in the top right, I can suggest to place them in the footer which is more appropriate in my opinion.

Apart from that I’ll consider adding a widget area in that space, but it needs to be checked first.

Thank you

Hey again, So only 1 thing is giving me trouble. When I upload a project image to a portfolio project, it doesn’t thumbnail it properly on the main portfolio page. The image doesn’t constrain, it uses the original dimensions, just smaller. I have the image set as the featured image too.. so I’m not understanding what’s wrong. Dos the theme not automatically constrain the images to fit neatly on the portfolio page? (like how the demo theme is)

After a lot of research, we really like the way the demo looks and feels . We have narrowed our choice down to two themes, Andante being one of them. First, we had a few questions: 1) Is it correct that you don’t use google web fonts? 2) If so, is the only way to change the fonts through amending the code? 2) Do you have any examples of others using your theme? (I found one for the French theater in the comments section, but that’s about it) 3) Does this theme support an instagram plugin? 4) Is the home page customizable with a sidebar for advertising if we wanted? 5) Do e-commerce plug-ins work with your theme? 6) Do you have to be highly proficient at reading & writing code in order to customize this theme? I am no expert, but can figure things out…I really like the way a lot of the elements are set-up as is, so I don’t plan on making drastic changes.

Please let me know if you need additional information on any of these questions. Thank you!

gyo
gyo Author

Hello, thanks for the interest! :)

1) Andante does use Google fonts and 2) yes, you can change it in the CSS . I’m afraid I’m not allowed to send other websites using Andante.

3) It depends on the plugin but it should work.

4) The homepage has 1 specific widgets area below the images slider. Then there are also two more areas above the footer and the footer itself.

5) As always it depends on the plugins.

6) You can make a lot of customizations via Theme Options, changes in the code can be done, but of course it’s easier for a developer. In any case we can give some support.

Thank you!

Default-user

Thanks for the speedy response! We went ahead and purchased it. 2 quick questions:

1 ) how do I change the paragraph font (I was able to change the headers, but I must be missing something when it comes to the paragraph)

2) How can I get only 3 featured images on the home page. I didn’t find the option and i have 5 pics in two rows.

Thank you!

gyo
gyo Author

Sincerely thank you for the purchase!

1) Open up the style.css and change the body around line 42 where it says font-family: sans-serif;

2) All the projects marked as “featured” will be shown in the homepage. Just edit the projects you don’t want to show and uncheck the option.

Let me know if you need more assistance.

If you haven’t done many changes I suggest to re-upload the theme files and try again. This way you’ll make sure everything works as expected, and if you still experience problems let me know!

Gyo… Quick question. So the home page slider. Is it supposed to have links to it to navigate within the site? It seems like it is supposed to because there is a form field in the CMS for it. I would like to use the slider to link to pages on the site. Thank you in advance, Ben

Hi Ben,

Each slide can have its own link, just copy/paste the pages URL you want and it should be fine.

Hi, The formatting for line breaks is not working on the Pages. I have a huge list of CDs (images) and text that I need to show on a page and putting it all on the page in the HTML view is really a pain. Is there anything I can do to correct this? I’m having to use
placed in manually and if I view at all in the regular view, all of them disappear and I have to do it all over again. Thanks for your help! Is there an update for the theme? I’m on Version 1.0.
