Hi, I am new to this, so I apologize for the incorrect naming of objects…I uploaded the Aqua theme, but the only thing that is showing is my logo, contact information and the tool bar (not sure what it is called) that shows all my pages. All the other items that appear on the demo; the big picture slide show, the smaller boxes underneath that with the links…nothing else is showing up. Please help!

Hi,

Please go through the documentation that is in your package, it will make things clearer + will show you how to install the Demo data and setup your own slider. :)

Hi there, I really love the design of your theme. Unfortunately I can’t make it do what I want. Do you know where I can find the code to make a 2 column layout within the pages. I do not want to use tabled layout. There might be a bug in the WP install.

blueowlcreative

Creating 2 columns in a page is very easy, did you read the documentation on Columns and play around with the custom shortcodes?

Default-user

Thanks. Sorry I did not get back sooner. I was working on your theme, absolutely amazing! I eventually got the hang of it.

blueowlcreative

Glad to hear that! Hope you get more licenses for other projects in the future! :)

Default-user

Like Arnie once said “I will be back!” and I too am likely to come back wanting more themes from you.

blueowlcreative

Cool, thanks for rating the theme too if you haven’t yet! ;)

Hi there, I am going to comprize a bug list for you to look at, I hope this will help this theme. I really do like the appearance of things, but there are a couple of bugs I can send you whilst working on it.

blueowlcreative

Oh yeah? Good! :)

Default-user

Those weren’t really bugs, I justed needed to get the hang of it and I did!

There is only one issue I found. It has to do with the slider on the top of the page. Not the RevSlider, the one included. I sometimes get a gap on the bottom of the slider. I am unsure why this is, if you possibly know could you please let me know if you have the same problem.

Apologize for the delay, I was working on the Theme. I gave you 5* btw for an awesome theme!

blueowlcreative

Which slider, URL please? Thanks for the rating. :)

Default-user

The website is currently on development (hidden). The slider affected is the slider with this text:

“sliderhttp://www.easywp.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/2011_porsche_911_gt2_2.jpg[/slide][slide link=”” title=”“]http://www.easywp.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/2011_porsche_911_gt2_3.jpg[/slide][/slider]"

I know you prob. can’t do much with this. I feel it could be a conflict between other scripts, so I am likely to use RevSlider to solve the issue. I am sorry I could not show you this page.

blueowlcreative

Ah, OK, please follow this pattern for a slider like this, pasting you the code from the Demo. You can also use the shortcode and just fill in the missing bits (img URL, title, link).

[slider][slide link="" title=""]IMG_URL[/slide][slide link="" title=""]IMG_URL[/slide][/slider]

The Compatible Browsers section doesn’t list IE10, but the text on the info screen says IE9+—is this theme compatible with IE10?

blueowlcreative

Sure it is :)

I do not see the license, then I can support my doubts about ?

You should have a link below the Item Title.

In the contact form page, I see the same order as in the example of this template. I get all followed down.

Hi again,

What exactly seems to be the problem? PM me with your details (email etc) so I can create your forum user manually or help you via email. :)

Hi guys, how can I hide the page heading (page_heading) on a page? I want to do this on the homepage. I see this is possible in your demo, but I can’t figure out how. I also installed the demo data, but in the demo data the home page does show the page heading. Thanks in advance for your help.

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

I simply add in the TEXT editor (not Visual) this bit of CSS:


<style>
.full_container_page_title {
display: none;
}
</style>
Default-user

Great, thanks for the fast answer.

Default-user

For anyone who has the same question: the answer above didn’t work rightaway, but after some experimenting I discovered the following did:


<style type="text/css">
.page_heading {
display: none;
}
</style>
blueowlcreative

Yep, that’s if you are using the paged wrapper style. :)

does this theme work with woocommerce plugin?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Not by default, implementing one would need some additional CSS coding I suppose. Cheers! :)

Hi, i want to add a portfoliocarusell into my page. I already made a new category and wrote 3 portfolioitems and put them to the categorie i want to show them. But my problem now ist, when i put this link portfolio_carousel limit=”10” order_by=”rand” into my page it does not work. :( i think i have to write something between the link. But what??

Thank you for support

blueowlcreative

Hey, what do you mean by “i have to write something between the link” ... You just need to use the shortcode that is there. Send me your URL via my profile page along with the shortcode that you are using. :)

Default-user

I Think that is the point, i don´t know where i can find the shortcode number ???? :)

blueowlcreative

The shortcode for portfolio Carousel? It’s one of the icons in the bottom line of custom shortcodes, right after Post Carousel. :)

Is there a way to keep the filter when you view an item in portfolio? the filter is there on portfolio template but when you click an item in the portfolio the filter disappear (because it uses single_portfolio template).

http://gdcllc.wpengine.com/prior-residential/
blueowlcreative

Hi there, you mean once you click on the portfolio item and then come back to the portfolio page? Not really as the filter is activated with Javascript locally on the portfolio page…

Default-user

thanks. maybe i’ll just add a “back” button so they can go back in the portfolio page.

blueowlcreative

You could, that would still have the filters at default state though, which shouldn’t be much of an issue. :)

Is it possible to rearrange the filter to my desired arrangement and not by alphabetical order?

http://gdcllc.wpengine.com/prior-residential/

I doubt there is a way though since portfolio categories doesnt have any ID or date which I can use to organize the arrangement of filters. but if there is a way, let me know. thanks.

blueowlcreative

Hi again,

If you edit your portfolio-three-column.php you will see the actual arguments list for the portfolio query here:

$args = array(
        'post_type' => 'portfolio',
        'posts_per_page' => (ot_get_option('portfolio_items_per_page',9) ? ot_get_option('portfolio_items_per_page',9) : 9),
        'paged' => $paged
);

You can surely add more params to that to order the items anyway you want, check all params available here:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters

Look into “order” and “order_by”! ;)

Default-user

thanks for your reply :). actually what i want is to arranged the filter which is the portfolio categories and not the portfolio items. i think that array is for the portfolio items.

blueowlcreative
Oh, I see. Then add an $args list with a “orderby” clause as shown here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_terms on this line:
$portfolio_category = get_terms('portfolio_category');

Like so for example:


$args_c = array('orderby'       => 'date');
$portfolio_category = get_terms('portfolio_category', $args_c);

Hello, can you provide demo content, as i see in demo? It can be wordpress database (.sql) or wordpress import file…

Sure, it’s in the package you downloaded from TF, please check the documentation as well if you haven’t yet. :)

Hi, the template does not allow me to create unordered list. Let me create visual and html. but when I go to my site does not appear. Please Help me

blueowlcreative

Hi,

There’s a custom shortcode for that – “Add a list”, it’s the 3rd icon in the bottom row of custom shortcodes, please use that for your lists. :)

is the theme ‘child theme’ ready?

blueowlcreative

Hi there, not in the conventional way, there’s the Custom CSS though under Theme Options where you can type in your custom CSS that will overwrite anything in the stylesheet.css file. You could also create a child theme yourself if you prefer that. :)

Hi! I like this theme and I will buy it but I have a question:

The plugin “WP e-Commerce” works on this theme?

I need this plugin for make a products page…

I await your reply ASAP

P.S: Sorry for my english I from Spain…

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Not by default, you can install and do some CSS changes if you want to use it yourself though. Another option would be to combine it with my AquaCart theme – a ready to go OpenCart Template, where you can run OpenCart for your shopping cart solution! :)

Hi, Thanks for a great theme. Is it possible for you to giva a complete documentation for the shortcodes? It’s a lot more to them than just the buttons in the editor. Some of the shortcodes uses attributes that’s not in the editor.

blueowlcreative

Hi Jabbin, thanks for noting that, I will definitely take that under consideration for a future update. Anything in particular you are having a hard time figuring out? :)

Hi there,

Love this theme, very nicely set up. However I am having issues with the contact form. I have my email set up in the settings however when I test it, I don’t get an email and no prompt comes up saying your submission was sent. How can I fix this?

Thanks so much for your help,

Alex

blueowlcreative

Hi Alex,

Are you working locally or on a hosting server?

Default-user

Hi, I am working locally.

blueowlcreative

You don’t have a mail server setup locally then, that’s the reason, once you upload to a hosting server you will be fine. :)

Default-user

Sorry still having issues. I am set up with Go Daddy, so the site is live and it still doesn’t seem to be working. When I fill out the contact form to test it, it goes blank when I hit send and I get no prompt saying your message has been sent. When I go to refresh the page then it says “Are you sure you want to send a form again?” Not sure how to fix this issues. Thanks for the help.

blueowlcreative

Hi, does your hosting’s mail server work OK? The contact.php template has nothing much in it but a simple php mail() function so if the mail server is setup OK you shouldn’t have problems with it. :)

I have an issue with the icons, they somehow generate a big_ class which makes the icons unviewable. This is done automatically.

For example, this:
[feat_text title="Featured Title" icon="icon-flag-3" href="#"]Featured Text[/feat_text]
Generates this:
<div class="section_featured_texts"><span class="icon big_icon-flag-3" /><h3>Featured Title</h3><p>Featured Text</p></div>
blueowlcreative

Hi there,

To use the custom icons in the FEATURED TEXT areas you need to add an additional “icon” class like so:

[feat_text title="Featured Title" icon="icon icon-flag-3" href="#"]Featured Text[/feat_text]

Hello,

I was wondering is there a way to setup a carousel like the services section on the homepage to be used as links to pages I have created versus having them link to the service? What I mean is, instead of using the services section (I use them for conferences) I set up the conferences as pages that I want linked from the homepage. I like how they services are listed and in a carousel, but how would I achieve the same kind of look, but have them link to my pages I created? And use the carousel if there are more than 4.

http://burrellcenter.com.ixia.arvixe.com/bbh/ Home page

http://burrellcenter.com.ixia.arvixe.com/bbh/conferences/mindfulness-in-clinical-practice/ Example of one of my conferences.

Make sense?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You could setup a category of Posts where you would list that new section of pages then by using the Posts Carousel shortcode you can filter them by using the category-slug parameter. They will look just like the services carousel currently on my Home page DEMO. Good looking website by the way, great job! :)

johnworfin

I could, but I need to be able to add my product bag, for the ecommerce section somehow. Currently I just setup a page template for conferences so it would just show up on those pages using that template. Any ideas how I would do this with posts? Oh, and thanks for the compliment-the theme has been wonderful to work with!

blueowlcreative

Hi again John, so you want the shopping bag to appear in your post template? Which template are you using for the conferences, Page.php? Btw which shopping cart plugin are you using?

johnworfin

I created my own page template for the conferences and plugged in the code for the shopping bag. I am using Ecwid for my shopping cart.

blueowlcreative

So why don’t you plug in the code for the cart in the other templates?

johnworfin

Good idea-I don’t know why I didn’t think of that-LOL.

Thanks.

johnworfin

OK, I got another question-is there an easy way for me to list upcoming conferences and past conferences to show 2 of each at the same size and have the ability to scroll through both? So that the row still shows 4 entries, but 1 for past and 1 for upcoming. Instead of having it pull from the same set of services?

blueowlcreative

If you are using the custom Post type “Services” for your conferences… nope, unless you extend the custom Post type to accommodate another way of differentiation… categories or taxonomies of some sort. You then need to extend the shortcode to check for a parameter that will filter them along those lines… It would be much easier if you are using simple Posts… you already have the category-slug filter there so you can add extra categories just for that.

johnworfin

ok, one more question-any idea why the auto generated thumbnails for the conferences (services) arent the same size?

http://burrellcenter.com.ixia.arvixe.com/bbh/
blueowlcreative

Hey,

Your initial ones are not uniform in proportions, that’s the reason. When the first 3 get cropped along the X axes they are not tall enough to fill the whole Y axes of the size defined for the thumbnail. I have purposefully left out the hardcrop feature as it would cut out parts of your images. In this case it only resizes along the axes that fits in. Your solution is to simply use images with uniform dimensions! :)

OR, if there was an easy way to add the ability to assign page templates to each service as well as assign a page parent, I could just use the services section.

blueowlcreative

I would just use regular Posts and filter them through via the category-slug param.
