Another question is how I can use an accordion inside a sidebar widget – do you know?

blueowlcreative

Easy, copy your shortcode once you have created it in the page editor. Then paste it in a TEXT widget and add the widget to the sidebar. :)

Hi, Aqua 1.5? I suggest you use the latest 2.1. Have you created your custom sidebars?

How do I show all the services on one page instead of the carousel? I do not want my services in a carousel. Thank you!

blueowlcreative

Hi, you can create a custom template where you can query all post from the custom post type “service”. Similar to the portfolio template with the filter, you can use it as a starting point.

How can I do this custom template? Is there not a shortcode or a way to do this without programing or coding? I feel like Services should not be limited to a carousel. It doesnt make sense for people who want to see a list of them (blog style) and not 3-4 at a time which is restricting and not flexible like many other themes. Thank you for the help in advance!

I would just like my services to display in a static page using a shortcode in the same way, without a carousel. Just a list if possible. I need to have static content so a template may not work or be flexible for that.

blueowlcreative

Of course a custom template would be what you need, where you would query only the service custom post type. Another way would be to create a custom shortcode that does the same, then use the shortcode to collect the data and display the items, it’s a question of personal preference. In both cases you would need a simply WP_Query that collects all posts, then output the data. Good luck!

I’m sorry to bother you, but I have read countless comments on here, and I cannot find what I’m looking for. I’ve created a portfolio using the Aqua theme (I love your theme!), but how do I put the portfolio on a page like the demo? Is there a shortcode? If so, I can’t find it anywhere. Thank you in advance for your help with this.

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You can portfolio carousels to any page… You can also create a portfolio page by simply choosing the Portfolio option from the Templates drop down. Thanks for the feedback, make sure you rate the theme if you like it. Cheers! :)

Default-user

Thank you for the quick reply. I have done that, but when I choose the portfolio template, nothing happens. I tried adding a gallery on the template but that doesn’t it make it look like the demo either. So after I choose the portfolio template, how do I get the images on there? I’ve already created a portfolio in the side bar area… but I don’t see a shortcode or anything to add to the portfolio template. Thank you for your help!

blueowlcreative

Hi again,

Have you created your portfolio items along with their Featured images and categories?

Default-user

I have created the portfolio items from the menu on the right side, but I don’t know what you mean about featured images. I guess this is what I’m missing. Is there a tutorial somewhere that I’m missing? Thank you again!

blueowlcreative

a Featured image is an image you can attach to any post/portfolio item etc. This is the main image that is associated with your post/portfolio item and that will show in your carousels and in your portfolio page. You set it when editing a post to the right-bottom. Make sure you use big enough images and consistent in size and proportions for your portfolio items so they look nicely aligned. :)

Default-user

Yes, I understand what a featured image is, but I can’t get my portfolio to look like the demo. Is the demo portfolio a carousel? Is this the short code we’re supposed to add to the portfolio page portfolio_carousel limit=”10” order_by=”rand”? I’ve added the shortcode, added a featured image, and set the template to “Template-Portfolio Page” And still my page shows nothing. Here’s the link, it’s still in the early stages of being developed. http://test.jsclighting.com/portfolio/ Thank you for your help with this. I’m not sure what I’m missing. Do you have step-by-step directions you can send me so I stop asking you questions :) I really appreciate your help. Thank you

Default-user

I figured it out. Thank you for your help!

I am having trouble with a user who cannot log in to the website….can I send you a private message with credentials to try to log in to determine what the issue is?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

What user, what website, how does that relate to my theme and are you a client of mine? :)

Default-user

Hi my web company purchased your template – purchase code 44acd6d6-9a78-4a12-8da2-856f3a642e48

We created this website: http://seamless.com.mt and a user cannot log in to the wp-admin even after clearing cache and cookies.

blueowlcreative

Well, my friend, this has nothing to do with the theme you are using really. If you have forgotten your password you could go into your hosting panel and manually change your user password from the DB. ;)

Default-user

It’s not a forgot password issue; I don’t know what the issue is and I was hoping you could help me.

blueowlcreative

What kind of issue is it then if the user cannot login?

hi there, great them, really. But still confused about using the icons

i did see the list on http://blueowlcreative.com/wp/aqua/elements/icons/ so i use the names provided there. but nothing shows up, or small, or totally different icons. what am I doing wrong?

If I use: is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.[/feat_text] a heart icon shows up that is not even on the list…

so what is the way to use the names on your icon list?

blueowlcreative

Please refer to the documentation (Shortcodes). It explains how to use simple icons, then Featured texts with icons, then buttons with icons in them, here’s a few examples:

[icon icon="heart" color="blue" size="small" icon_solid="no"][/icon]
[button href="http://google.com" target="_blank" css_classes="button_blue small_button"][icon icon="heart"][/icon]Cool Button[/button]

You will find all those there and all params etc are explained.. :)

Default-user

thanks for your reply, nothing much to find in the documentation, Documentation/Aqua/index.html#shortcodes….

I used your codes above on this page, check results http://www.fortune-cookies.eu/icon-test/
blueowlcreative

Oops, all this time I though you were using a different theme, my bad! :) How exactly are you trying to use the icons in Aqua, in a featured text?

Default-user

no problem, in a featured text… I use the names as in http://blueowlcreative.com/wp/aqua/elements/icons/

see: http://www.fortune-cookies.eu/icon-test/

blueowlcreative

Oh I see, for the extra icons you need to add another “icon” param, like so:


icon="icon-clubs icon"

I would like to change the word “comment” , “Leave a reply” and “no comments” yet on all blog pages , i tried to change in the comments.php file , and some of them changed while others didn’t

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Which one are you having trouble with? :)

Default-user

Having trouble changing all 3 areas , can you assist with a small guide on changing those please. On the page i have set to host “Posts” I’d like change the “no comments yet” and the ”# comments” to “no entries” and ”# entries” Then on the actual Posts page , i’d like to change “Leave a Reply” to “Post Journal Entry”

blueowlcreative

So are you editing the Aqua/comments.php, all of those are actually found there?

Default-user

Here is what i have done and the results – http://www.nitrografixx.com/help – you can see i’ve edited everywhere on the comments php , and i get results on individual comments page , but not on the main posts page that is set in the WP settings

Default-user

nevermind , i found some more “comments” text in the single.php and the index.php files , changed those and all is good to go , thanks for the assistance.

blueowlcreative

Ah, you got it, there are some references in those templates too. Great! :)

How can i remove the search function on a homepage on the website?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You can either manually remove it from the header.php template or simply hide it with css (either in your Custom CSS in theme options or in your stylesheet.css file):


.header_search {
display: none;
}

I just installed the Ubermenu , and i am showing both the theme menu and the UberMenu on mobile displays. How can i remove the theme instance of the responsive menu ?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Simply remove your mobile menu from your header.php:


<div id="mobile_menu">    
        <?php wp_nav_menu( array(
                'theme_location'=> 'main_navigation',
                'container'     => '',
                'menu_class'     => '', 
                'walker'         => new boc_Menu_Walker,
                'fallback_cb'   => 'menuFallBack',
                'items_wrap' => '<ul>%3$s</ul>',
        ));?>
        </div>

I’ve used several multi-level menus, when doing so I did not include a link on the parent menu. Is there a way to lighten the text or remove the link for the parent menu option when viewing on mobile phones? Currently they appear as navigational options, however clicking them simply refreshes the page (because they don’t link anywhere), which causes a poor user experience. Thanks

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You could ultimately change this code in the header.php
onchange="location = this.value"

You could assign, a JS method to the onchange event, then declare it separately and in it you could add a check, if there’s no location available (link) then no redirect should be initiated. Let me know if you need help achieving it! :)

Default-user

Thank you for the prompt reply. Your help would be greatly appreciated as I don’t feel confident that it would be something I could do on my own.

blueowlcreative

Ok, no problem, here, replace this line:


'items_wrap' => '<select id="select_menu" onchange="location = this.value"><option value="">'.__('Select Page', 'Aqua').'</option>%3$s</select>',

with this:

'items_wrap' => '<select id="select_menu" onchange="loc_change(this.value);"><option value="">'.__('Select Page', 'Aqua').'</option>%3$s</select>',

Then add this to the bottom of your header.php:


<script>
function loc_change(new_loc){
    if(new_loc!=''){
        location = new_loc;
    }
}
</script>

We are basically checking for the url of the menu link and if it’s not present we don’t do any redirects. :)

Works perfectly, thank you for the help

Hey bud. My tagline disappeared somehow on multiversemediagroup.com. I don’t know when it happened as I just noticed it and I haven’t done much of anything for a while now. I’m guessing the last theme update.

Any ideas on why it’s now gone. Is it some code missing from the header.php?

Thanks. :)

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You are on the right track, check your header.php, i am out of town so couldn’t check at the moment! :)

The location of the theme does not work properly. Creating a file .po Files can not be loaded my language.

how can I do

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Please describe what you are doing and at what point the problem occurs. The theme location works just fine, so I assume it’s an issue of setting up things right.

Hello, I’m interested in buying your theme, but I would like to integrate Google rich snippets. I tested this theme and in test results I can see that this theme is not compatible with rich snippets. Will you make this theme compatible with rich snippets in next version? Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks for your interest, at this point no though… :)

i read on your support forum that you will add Visual Composer. Do you know when it will be available

great Theme, i use it for Wordpress and Opencart

thanks

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Visual Composer is planned for Savia not for Aqua, unfortunately implementation got pushed back for awhile now because of higher priority issues. Thanks for your feedback and glad to hear my themes are working out for you! Cheers! :)
