Hello there,

Stunning layout! For the most part, it’s been a breeze to manipulate, with two strange exceptions:

1) I seem unable to add an external link – a la http://google.com – to the Primary Menu. Doing so breaks both the Primary and the Hero Menu. Such links work everywhere else, including in the Hero Menu.

2) The Portfolio section doesn’t work as it does in the demo. Clicking the image or the icon does not load the gallery images – or in fact, do anything.

Both of these issues also crop up when using the unedited example index file included in the html folder. I’m a bit of a novice programmer, so I assume I’m doing something daft … I just don’t know what.

Thanks guys!

The issue seems limited to Chrome … works normally in both IE and Firefox.

My apologies. The problem is fixed. My method for making the video responsive ended up being the source of the issue. Thanks!

Good to hear all is resolved, thanks!

Hi! Is there an estimate release date for the WP theme? I am in the urge to have it available asap :(

digitalscience

We should be getting it uploaded sometime next week, though we can’t predict how long it may take to be approved. Lately, it seems to take anywhere from 3-5 days to get through the queue.

Great news, I’ll be on the lookout!

apologize, above the quotations ”?” suppose to say:

Scroll half way down the page and you’ll see the same icons listed with the class name. Note that they do not have the “apex-icon-” portion of the class, they will just say “zoom” (as an example), but you need to add the “apex-icon-” class prefix for all icons.

Well done – really awesome. Any chance I can get a link to the phone mockup file?

Please see file description page under “Image resources” for download link to phone mock-up resources.

Hi Guys! Great Template! Looks awesome!

Do you have now a release date for the wordpress theme? When will it be here?

Thanks!

digitalscience

Good to hear! We’re aiming to release the WP version in the next few weeks, will keep you updated!

Hi, I have purchased this theme. Nice theme indeed but throws a javascript error on Chrome (Mac) on small screens (Iphone size). I guess this is why the menu does not slide up on Iphone too although it uses safari. The error says:

Uncaught ReferenceError: apex_mobile_menu_hide is not defined script.js line 31

Would you be interested in fixing this and republishing the scripts.js file?

thanks

Default-user

Yes it happens on your own site too. Just try it on a small screen like iphone’s size. Use Chrome as web browser (I tried Chrome on Mac). When you open the mobile menu its ok. But when you select an item in the menu it does not close the menu automatically but throws the error that I posted.

Just created a ticket on your support page. By the way, same thing happens on your demo page: http://themes.metaphorcreations.com/apex-html/

Ok, I see what you are saying now. I didn’t realize you where talking about after a menu item was clicked. I have this resolved and will upload an update here. I’ll also attach the updated file to your support ticket.

Hi ! I love your theme, though I am wondering if you could release the necessary code to create some drop down nav menus ? I must say I thought they were integrated in the template…

:-)

Thank you so much !

Thanks for the compliments! We have discussed this subject and will be adding this feature. We still need to design and code it, but will include it in an update as soon as it’s done.

Hi There.

I have a problem (you have likely fixed) where on a tablet or phone the drop down menu will stay around after a selection has been made ( i imagine it should disappear) As i bought early on and have modified the HTML heavily do you have a JavaScript fix you could please post?

Thanks.

Chris.

Hi there,

How do I make the text inside the contact form bigger.’Your name’, ‘Email’ and ‘Message?

Add the following CSS to the bottom of the “assets/css/custom.css” file:

.form-control {
  font-size: 18px;
}

Adjust the size to your needs.

HI ! I love your theme, but like other customers I experience an issue I would like to be fixed. The Portfolio section doesn’t work as it does in the demo. Clicking the image or the icon does not load the gallery images – or in fact, do anything. Can you please tell me how to resolve that issue ?

Thank you !

///// UPDATE ///// I see you provided an answer to the issue stated above. I will try to upload the files and see if its solves the problem. Thanks

Glad you like the theme!

Please setup and run your site on either a remote (online) or local server (like WAMP or MAMP). The portfolio uses ajax to load the galleries and if you try to run it off your desktop there will run into path issues trying to load external files.

hello, I can not find how to configure the template in one page layout. Can you please explain to me how to do. Thank you!

Please create a support ticket here http://metaphorcreations.ticksy.com/ with more explanation as to what you are specifically having trouble figuring out.

Also, did you mean to post this on the Apex HTML product (this product), or did you mean to post in the Apex WordPress Theme product?

Thanks!

Hi digitalscience,

This comment is for just to let you know I have purchased your outstanding template (the badge, I mean…). Actually I will send a message soon via your profile page. Thanks, cheers, fbyte.

Well, I am back here, just to let something know the community members here.

So, you (digitalscience) are a #1 top author (still at AD), surely very busy with your everyday tasks and support tickets from buyers as well.

I had a small request to you, actually beyond the scope of template support. You acted very quickly and showed your helpfulness without hesitation.

I consider this as a very professional attitude and many of the authors here should learn from you. :) Please accept my highest appreciation.

Best regards, fbyte

digitalscience

Thanks for the kind words! You can personally thank Joe – the developer and support wizard for his expert assistance :) As for digitalscience from ActiveDen, I’m doing the theme design and keeping things visually fresh! Please don’t forget to rate our file if you get a chance, thanks again.

Hi there,

On the home page how do I change the colour of the “rotating text” [such as ‘WE ARE APEX’ etc] and the radio buttons below? I will be using a a background or image that is lighter in tone.

And finally how do I insert an unordered list in the ‘About’ section where you have centred column of text below the circular icons?

many thanks in advance.

William

JoeMC
JoeMC Author Team

You’ll need to add (or modify) the following CSS:

#hero-rotator .mtphr-rotator-resource {
  color: #000;
}
.mtphr-rotator-navigation a,
.mtphr-rotator-navigation a i {
  color: #000;
}

Modify the color as necessary.

To add an unordered list you just need to add one within the column, and if you want it centered add a class of “text-center” to it:

<ul class="text-center">
  <li>List item 1</li>
  <li>List item 2</li>
  <li>List item 3</li>
</ul>

Thanks very much for the coding.

I have one more request.

The navigation buttons (‘About’, ‘Team’, ‘Services’ an so on) below the “rotator”, how do I make the outer square box darker so there is a better contrast with a light background?

Thanks.

JoeMC
JoeMC Author Team

You need to set the background color through css:

.apex-hero-menu-container a {
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25);
}

This uses rgb values to set a black background at 25% opacity.

Just upload the website using your brilliant Apex theme on GoDaddy www.prudentitsolutions.com.

The contact form is not sending any messages to the email address entered in the PHP form on line 6.

GoDaddy says that PHP is enabled as standard on their servers.

Can you help?

Kind regards,

William

Please check your Spam/Junk folder to see if your emails have ended up there. If so, you may want to change the “From” email on line #39 to reference an email from your domain, as opposed to the email of the person submitting the form:

$headers = "From: $email\r\n";

Change this to:

$headers = "From: info@mydomain.com\r\n";

Just change the email to something that suits your needs… and then you may also need to set something in your email client to make sure those emails don’t get labeled as junk mail.

Thanks for that.

Before reading your solution, I looked at the commentform.php file and noticed the closing tag for the opening tag <?php at the beginning of the file was missing at the end of the file, so I added ?> as the last entry on the file. It now works.

I have also implemented your solution shown on your reply.

Thanks again.

JoeMC
JoeMC Author Team

Ok, glad you found a solution. I’m surprised the missing ?> tag was the issue… Leaving that out is intentional and you can read reasons here http://blog.rogeriopvl.com/archives/php-files-closing-the-php-tag-or-not/

But, I am glad that this did resolve your issue and it’s good to know for any possible future issues other users may have.

Thank you for your purchase and your comments!

One more question, how can I change the color of placeholder on the contact form? Or what’s the CSS markup for changing it? I’ve tried some solutions, but unfortunately it didn’t work.

I want to change the placeholder color to white in the contact form fields.

Thank you!

Hi there,

Is there a way to hide the “back to the top” button when the screen size reaches the iPhone, iPad or other smartphones screen size in portrait or landscape?

Kind regards,

William

JoeMC

The code above was for the button in the footer. If you want to disable the floating button use:

a#apex-totop-float {
  display: none;
}
@media (min-width: 768px) {
  a#apex-totop-float {
    display: block;
  }
}

Thanks it works. My error in not describing correctly which button I wanted disable.

No problem. I should have put both versions to start with. Thanks for your purchase!
