Morning,

Please can you tell me what files in the theme <script type=’text/javascript’ src=’http://www.kernowccg.nhs.uk/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.8.3'></script> is registered in, as I would like to test a compatibility issue im having with a script i’m trying to load, I tried header.php as there are js scripts in there but this didn’t help me.

How does the theme allocate the version number of query please.

Thanks and sorry i know your pulling your hair out with me.

Thank you all sorted now, had to do a lot of digging in code but got there in the end – good learning curve :-)

Good job! :)

Hi! We have now purchased your AquaWP theme for our website. You had said that you could put the “scroll to top” arrow button for all the pages on your list for development and we would love if you would do so. It would look nice if it was very similar to the arrow used for the slider on the homepage. Thank you!

blueowlcreative

Sure, adding it right now! :) Cheers!

Default-user

Thank you! That’s wonderful.

Have you considered adding other social media icons like Instagram, Foursquare or YouTube? Just a thought.

Is there a way to change the web address (www.sitename.com/PORTFOLIO) and the title of Portfolio on the navigation tabs located right under the menu once on the portfolio page to something else? We are using that set up to list the shops within our larger store and it would be nice to call it something that’s a little more logical for our site.

Thanks!

Default-user

Oh my… silly question. I found where to change the portfolio name in the pages and got it switched just fine.

blueowlcreative

Cool deal! :)

Default-user

Hope you are having a great day! We are working on our site and really liking your template. Seems like you thought of so many things that others left out. I was wondering, is there a way to get the items on the portfolio page to appear in alphabetical order by title or random order instead of by date?

blueowlcreative

Hey,

You could add the “orderby” clause to the query in your “portfolio-three-column.php” after this:

'post_type' => 'portfolio',

Add this:

'orderby'=>'title',

for example. :)

Default-user

Perfect! Thank you so much!

blueowlcreative

Sure, share the love and rate my theme if you like it! :)

Default-user

Will do! Five stars coming your way. :)

Hi,

This is my first time ever uploading a purchased theme to my Wordpress Website. Do you have any how-to-guides describing how a first-time user would go about doing this? I installed the aqua .zip file under “Install Themes” already, but my site looks nothing like the live-preview. Can you lend any helpful tips for a newbie like me? I would greatly appreciate it.

blueowlcreative

Sure,

The documentation is in the package you downloaded, follow it and you will be good to go! You can also install the Demo data to have your sire look like the Demo :)

One last question for a while now please

The search results currently show the whole content of the page in the list, is this deliberate? Or can it be tailored just to show headline and excerpt?

Rich

richpearsonwd

Hiya no problem I will do from now on :-) I have read the above and assuming you are saying that adding excerpts to every post and page sorts the search results page from displaying full content, not in at the mo to check the theory… Cheers bud

Hello,

I finally purchased your theme :). Great work.

However, I am getting an error when trying to import the xml file:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in E:\HostingSpaces\bbhadmin\burrellcenter.com\wwwroot\bbh\wp-includes\class-http.php on line 1152

Any ideas?

blueowlcreative

Hey there! :) Just try again later, guess you got to it at a time when the server was loaded. :) Please use our support forum with more questions! :)

Is it possible to make top menu corners square instead of rounded?

blueowlcreative

Yes, edit your CSS in the stylesheet.css file and for #menu remove these lines:

-moz-border-radius: 4px;
-webkit-border-radius: 4px;
-khtml-border-radius: 4px;
border-radius: 4px;
Default-user

Is it also possible to make the pictures in the slider square instead of rounded?

blueowlcreative

Ya, just round-corner your images in it ;)

is there a way one can change the services_item and porfolio_item as it seems somewhat generic and a little out of place.

/services/ and /portfolio/ would seem a better solution.

blueowlcreative
Sure, these name aliases are defined in your functions.php file and you can change them if you want. More here: http://support.blueowlcreative.com/discussion/comment/554#Comment_554

can I use shortcode like [portfolio cat=”a”] in page to show portfolio items?

blueowlcreative

Nope, filtering is only available for Posts_Carousel, you can use that instead!

Hi There I have just downloaded this theme and am now starting to add the content and ‘Customise’ it to fit my content. When I click ‘Customise’ via ‘WP dashboard>Themes>Customise’ I get a blank browser window with a side bar menu of the left for the Aqua them, but I click the the drop downs for ‘You are previewing Aqua’ , ‘Site title and tagline’, ‘Menu main styles’, ‘colours’, ‘background image’ or ‘Static front page’ nothing happens?

If I click ‘Theme options’ via WP Dashboard>Theme options then I do get the Theme Options within the WP Dashboard?

Surely the Customise option should allow me to preview and see changes and access the drop down menus to change colours etc

Im using Safari 6.0.2

Any thoughts welcomed. Kev

blueowlcreative

Hi Kev,

Of course, half of the Custom theme Options are implemented in that one screen (Appearance->Customize). Do you get any JS errors in your console? Could you possibly try another browser (doubt this is causing it but still… ) :)

Default-user

Hi There – Thanks for the quick response! I realise now that some of the options are from within the WP dashboard and the more visual changes from the ‘Customise’ control panel. But I cant access any of the drop down menus and Im not seeing any sort of preview on the right hand side of the browser in this ‘Customise’ screen? I dont think I get any JS errors on my console? Apologies if this is obvious? :-/

Default-user

Just tried in Firefox – same thing – Its not previewing anything in the ‘Customise’ screen and the drop downs do not drop down or acknowledge my mouse click?

blueowlcreative

Very strange, you did a normal theme install as described in the documentation, yes? Changed anything since?

Default-user

As far as Im aware I did a normal theme install? From the WP dashboard I uploaded the .zip file that was in the ‘themeforest-3649588-aqua-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-template’ folder from the Aqua download from Theme Forest and it seems to have installed correctly as I have not received any error messages so far? Ah hang on….Should I have compressed the whole folder after download and install that as the .zip file? And not just the .zip file that was already in that folder?

blueowlcreative

The theme is Aqua.zip withing the package. Do you see the actual theme though? You enabled it and all, installed the Demo package?

Default-user

Ah…I havent installed the demo package!

Default-user

Not sure how I do that though?

Default-user

Ignore me Blue Owl – I have worked it out after the Documentation in the downloaded folder! Thanks for your help…I look forward to working with your theme and making my site look great/ :-)

Default-user

OK – Sorry. Im getting confused here. I have uploaded the demo package, but I still don’t see any thing in the ‘Customise’ screen. Just the menu choices down the left that I cannot click and nothing but a white screen on the right hand side of the browser window? I understand I can start to make some changes from ‘Theme Options’ menu in the WP dashboard, but I also need to use the ‘Customise’ screen right? :-/

Here’s where Im at so far… http://www.s460924354.websitehome.co.uk
blueowlcreative

Of course you should be able to access the customize section. Does the same happen with your default theme? Also does that happen when you try on a localhost? Please try?

Default-user

Hi There – Sorry for the delay. I have just activated the Twenty12 default theme and ‘Yes’ the same thing happens? Not sure what I need to do from here – Any help greatly appreciated. I really want to get going and start customising your theme :-/

blueowlcreative

Maybe something wrong with your installation?! It’s obviously not a theme issue … I would reinstall WP and try again :)

Wich code do i have to delete in the single.php?

Greets and thanks for this great theme :)

Hi there!

What’s a “contributing picture”? :)

Default-user

Hi

Sorry, i used the google translator because my english is terrible ;)

the picture you can choice on the right side in the article editor. Perhaps it’s called “article picture”? ;)

blueowlcreative

The Featured image? You don’t want it in the single.php?

How about remove this whole DIV (with everything in it):

<div class="pic">

</div>

yeah, great.

Thanks, for the fast and perfect support :)

And i save the phrase “featured image” in my brain ;)

Hi, me again ;)

I have a maybe little problem with my sidebar.

On a blog page, it’s all ok. But when you look on my start-page, the first title of the sidebar is over the menu-bar.

Look on www.wein-guenstig-kaufen.de and there the title “Werbung”. How can i fix it?

Greets Tobi

blueowlcreative

Hi Tobi,

Edit your page_sidbebar.php and substitute (on line 19):


<?php endif; ?>

with:


<?php else: ?>
<div class="h20" />
<?php endif; ?>

Hi,

At the bottom of “Home Version 3” of the HTML Version you have a section “Our clients” where one can scroll through client logos. Is this feature also available in the Wordpress Version and if so, how do I activate it?

Many thanks

Ruben

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Nope, there isn’t; you could achieve something like that yourself with the use of jcorousel + some custom coding though if you feel comfortable doing it…

Please where i can find the short code for services carousel?

It’s actually the Posts Carousel with a param post_type passed – ‘services’. You can check the Demo data for more. :)

Thank you for answer, i have one more little problem, i use different language than english for my site and i have problems with headers font family, whatever i choose from typography, it seems, that the family doesnt support special characters for my language, what shlould i do?

blueowlcreative

Well… most Google fonts do not support special UTF chars, you need to find a font among those that supports your language or just use a systems font. :)

well i have found what google fonts supports my language and now it works fine, thank you :-)

I recently purchased this theme and have had a couple of problems, wondered if anyone else had experienced the same thing and possibly found a fix.

1. When i add additional pages none of the content appears, including any breadcrumbs or page heading, however it recognises that the page exists.

2. The carousel slider for the testimonials moves each testimonial block to far to the left so it causes problems, i tried playing with the width and had no success.

Thank you.

blueowlcreative

Hey, could you please post your question in our support forum + describe exactly what you are doing + what the problem is and attach your URL if possible. Thanks! :)

I have installed a Youtube gallery plugin and the theme is stripping the video out and resizing it. How to stop this?

blueowlcreative

You can but the videos will not resize in responsive mode … something I doubt you are willing to go for?

When I add a picture into a table, the whole alignment goes whacko. The copy always goes below the lowest point of the picture.

http://burrellcenter.com.ixia.arvixe.com/bbh/?page_id=449

Any ideas?

blueowlcreative

Hey there, add this to your table css:

vertical-align: middle;

That should take care of it. :)

johnworfin

hmm-I tried that, at least I think I did…but I am not a table guy-lol. ANy ideas?

blueowlcreative

Just find this in your stylesheet.css file:

.aqua_table td {
padding: 8px 14px;
border: #e2e2e2 1px solid;
-webkit-transition: all 0.3s linear;
-moz-transition: all 0.3s linear;
-ms-transition: all 0.3s linear;
-o-transition: all 0.3s linear;
transition: all 0.3s linear;
}

And make it :

.aqua_table td {
padding: 8px 14px;
border: #e2e2e2 1px solid;
-webkit-transition: all 0.3s linear;
-moz-transition: all 0.3s linear;
-ms-transition: all 0.3s linear;
-o-transition: all 0.3s linear;
transition: all 0.3s linear;
vertical-align: middle;
}
blueowlcreative

Wow… what the?! how did you manage to achieve that?? You broke TF layout… Use “CODE” tag for code.

blueowlcreative

BTW how did you manage to abuse your menu like this, what’s with the white line??

johnworfin

That did it! Thanks!

johnworfin

oh wow

blueowlcreative

Hey, me again,

Put the vertical align for your body back to baseline, cuz that’s what messing up your menu. Leave only the one for the table! ;)

johnworfin

I think I got it now, but I dunno how to edit my post that had th code in it that messed up TF…I cant believe that could break their site???

blueowlcreative

Don’t worry about it, it was just a Div that wasn’t closed or smth, as long as your website is fine, we are all good! :)

I changed the menu style to a custom color in the customize theme section, but it only changes the main color, not the hover color. Where do you go in the css to change the hover color? I have tried a few things in the css, but it did not work for me. I am just not at the right place. Let me know how I should proceed.

Hello, is it possible to put the menu on the right side of the logo?

Sure if you feel comfortable editing HTML/CSS, be my guest. The logic for the header is in the header.php file. :)

hummm im gonna try ;) and and how can I set the slide full width???

With a boxed wrapper? Hm, you need to think of a way to take it out of the wrapper …

blueowlcreative

Default-user
bluemkt Purchased

im using on localhost :(

blueowlcreative

Modding this from your WP editor might get messy… I would probably add a check in the page.php template for the home page, then if YES I would close the DIV with class “container” that has the fixed width and holds all elements, then add the slider, then open a DIV with class container to hold the rest after the slider! :)

If couldn’t I do it? how much and how long to you do it?

Drop me a line via my profile page so I can give you a quote… But try to do it yourself first. :)
