Hello again!

We love your theme. One question, the language widget allows for updating the languages on all pages, however, the language option does not seem to be available under SERVICES pages. How do I add the language widget to those pages?

Thanks, Kevin

Hello, I’d like to put my logo in the header where the word “APPIC” is. How do I do this?

Thank you!

olechka

Hi,

Thank you for choosing our theme!

For this you need go to the Admin Panel > Appearance > Theme Options > Header section. There you will see “Logo Type” type field – switch it to “Image”. After this you will see 2 fields below it that will allow to you upload 2 version of the logo file – one for general devices and one for retina devices (2X higher resolution).

Hi there!

Love the theme, I am chipping away at it!

I was just wondering how exactly I can edit the coming soon template? For example the timer and the text below it

kind regards

mike

olechka

Hi Mike,

Thanks! Glad to hear that you like Appic.

You need to go to Admin Panel > Pages > Add New, select “Coming soon” as a template (you will see Page Attributes block under “Save” button”), give it some title, add some message to the content field and save it. After this you need to setup it as a front page (how to do this you can read here http://appic.softmanner.com/docs/current/index.html#VI.SettingUpHomepage).

Hi,

We’re using the “popular post” widget on the right sidebar on our blog. However, no matter what the post shown on there is always just the latest one. Any ideas?

Thanks

olechka

Hi Alberto,

Popular post widget contains post that has max number of the comments (this is most popular post). What behavior are you expecting for from this widget?

Default-user

We have comments disabled on our blog, that might explain why. Ideally I’d like to have it based on post views. We use a few things to monitor that (Google Analytics, and Post Views Counter).

olechka

Hi Alberto,

In this case you should implement some meta that will be updated by yourself or by some code (you can find some plugin that able to do so), after this you need to modify the ordering settings for the popular widget (file wp-content/themes/appic/includes/widgets/popular_post.php, line 55), need replace code: $popularPosts = new Wp_Query(apply_filters( 'widget_posts_args', array( 'orderby' => 'comment_count', 'posts_per_page' => $number > 0 ? $number : 1 )));

with query that will use your taxonomy field for ordering posts instead of the comment count.

Hello,

Is it possible to use two different images on the homepage when using 3D Effects. If you look at the demo I would like to use one image where it says ‘Simple and Perfect’ and a different image where is says ‘Welcome to Appic Universe’. I’ve used the CSS editor and it looks like they both point to the same background image.

Thanks

olechka

Hi Daniel,

There are different images in the 3D Effects.

Call to action block (it says ‘Simple and Perfect’) uses “wp-content/themes/appic/img/call-to-action-bg.jpg” that defined by css rule ”.action-area”. Universe block uses “wp-content/themes/appic/img/univers-bg.jpg” that defined by css rule ”.universe-wrap”.

It means you have a possibility to make your adjustment.

I’m trying to have the timeline completely open by default, but it seems that shortcode: [timeline open_all="1"]...[/timeline]

apparently don’t work.

you can see an example here: http://www.icoelimpianti.it/societa/

olechka

Hi,

You need just to replace open_all="1" with open_all="yes" so your code should look like this:

[timeline open_all="yes"]...[/timeline]

Don’t have woocommerce after theme installation. Should I manually install the plugin first?

olechka

Hi,

Yes, you should install woocommerce plugin by yourself as it’s not included into the theme package.

Hi Olechka,

1. Revolution slider says the best image size is 3480*1260px..but it is increasing loading speed of my page. Can you tell us what dimension slides we should put so image is not affected and loading speed is more.

2. How to change the background color of dropdown menu (sub-menu class).

olechka

Hi,

1. You should decide this by yourself. If you are using full width slider need take in consideration visitors with most popular screen size, some stats examples: http://www.rapidtables.com/web/dev/screen-resolution-statistics.htm http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_Display.asp http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_resolution_higher.asp

You can collect your own stats with google analytics or tools like that and make your own decision. It depends on what device is the most used by your audience.

2. You need to add the following css rules to Custom CSS field or to your child theme style.css file: .main-nav-wrap{ background-color:{YOUR COLOR}; } ul#navigation > li:hover > ul { background: {YOUR COLOR}; }

Hello,

Is there a way to disable / remove the timeline shortcode in the theme. Its interfering with another timeline plug-in I’m using that I like already.

Thanks, Daniel

olechka

Hi Daniel,

We recommend you to rename it to “appic_timeline” for example. For this you need to open file “wp-content/themes/appic/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes-appic-specials.php” and at the top of this file you will find timeline shortcode definition. It will look like this:
// Timeline
function timeline_shortcode ($atts, $content=null)
{
    extract(shortcode_atts(array(
        'open_all' => false,
    ), $atts));

    wp_enqueue_script('time_line');

    JsClientScript::addScript('timelineShortcodeInitCode',
        '$(".timeline").timeLineG({maxdis:280,mindis:100,wraperClass:"timeline-wrap",openAll:' . ( $open_all == 'yes' ? 'true' : 'false' ) . '});'
    );

    return '<div class="timeline"><div class="dateline">' .
        do_shortcode($content) .
    '</div></div>';
}
add_shortcode ('timeline', 'timeline_shortcode');

You need just to replace “add_shortcode (‘timeline’, ‘timeline_shortcode’);” with “add_shortcode (‘appic_timeline’, ‘timeline_shortcode’);”. Or just comment out this line if you don’t need this shortcode at all.

Note! After this change you won’t be able to update Appic in the regular way, as this change will be overwritten.

Have a nice day!

Default-user

Good Evening, Thanks so much for the reply. I made the above change and still have an issue. Is there a way to comment out the timeline completely and also remove any css entries that might be associated with it? I won’t be using this feature.

Thanks, Daniel

olechka

Hi Daniel,

What kind of issue do you have? You are free to remove shortcode function that we renamed at all if you would like to be sure on this.

If you would like to remove css that related to the timeline shortcode – you need to remove css rules in style.css starting from ’/Begin Timeline/’ until ’/End Timeline/’ (in our file it is from line 3663 to line 3813).

Hello, we are using your Theme and love it. We have a couple issues.

1. The services FA-icon is not showing on the service callout box when we modify the text.

2. how can we remove the breadcrumbs, or do we need to do this via css?

Thanks in advance..

Hi,

Thanks for appreciation :) This request is answered via email.

hi,

i just purchase the theme and im trying to install the revslider.zip but this file did not come on the downloads files, were can i find this file? or do i have to purchase this separate?

olechka

Hi,

You can find revslider.zip by following path “wp-content/themes/appic/includes/plugins/revslider.zip” (or extract appic.zip, and find it in the appic/includes/plugins folder). In general Appic should be able to install it from this archive by itself. Strange that this does not work for you.

Hi. I See you use http://placehold.it/ ot put in image placeholders if a image is not used.

How can i overwrite these for each different size place holder WITHOUT changing the current code.. So is there some code I can use in the Custom Code to change each one. Thanks

olechka

Hi,

Yes, placehold.it is used to display images that are imported with posts created in the imported data. Unfortunately there is no hooks of filters that can allow you to change this behavior without changing Appic code.

Maybe we could provide you with some solution, if you can say what exactly you are looking for. Why did you decide to change this behavior?

because sometimes if I dont use that image I get the place holder image and it doesnt look good to see a box that says 1920×358 or other size.. Would have been better if it didnt have the size in it, but to put my own image ( one for all) would be better. So if I dont use and image, it shows this placeholder. I would like to change it to a default image

Default-user
wealthyone Purchased

if there some custom code i can put in CSS that says if = http://placehold.it/1920x358 then use ..uploads/myimage.png

this would be better

Hi, I am experiencing a spinning arrow when user tries to submit a form using Contact Form 7 and Really Simple CAPTCHA. It is the Ajax that appears to be the problem although the form does submit successfully. However the user never sees this message only the continuous spinning arrow beside the submit button. Would the latest APPIC version fix this or is there something else I should try? Thanks

olechka

Hi,

Not sure that this issue is related to Appic itself. 1. Contact Form 7 is standalone plugin. 2. It works well on demo site.

Probably there is some issue on your installation related to the configuration/server configuration.

Check what response returns to the ajax requests generated by Contact Form 7. Is it empty? If it is – you have some fatal error during the request processing.
If you see some php notices, try to check if ‘WP_DEBUG’ is turned off in your wp-config.php (sometimes php notices rendered to the ajax output prevent js from parsing json responses).
Try to check your php error log. I think you will find the reason for this issue there.

For deeper investigation of your issue, please provide us with admin access via support contact form.
