Then, I just tried to create some placeholders to match your look and its screwing up the layout…any ideas?

http://burrellcenter.com.ixia.arvixe.com/bbh/home-manual/

Granted it would be ideal if each service worked like a normal page that I could assign templates too-but if not, this is my workaround hopefully.

First try the solution I gave you in your other questions…

Since you’ve helped me so much I thought I would bring to the attention of something that you could repair on the theme.

[column width="1/3" position="last" ][feat_text title="Managed" icon="icon icon-cube"] [checklist type="eg. checked, dotted, arrowed"] <ul class="checked"> <li>List 1</li> <li>List 1</li> <li>List 1</li> <li>List 1</li> <li>List 1</li> <li>List 1</li> <li>List 1</li> </ul> [/checklist] [/feat_text] [/column]

This does not work as intended, the list item breaks. It’s something small with CSS, if you put a padding left 30px within the feature section it fixes the entire issue. :)

I am really using your theme to the max, so if I find anytihng else I will let you know.

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You need to type in the type of list you are using withing the checklist “type” attribute like so… [checklist type="checked"] and remove the other example types! Then adding the actual class to the UL would be unnecessary. :)

Is there a way within the theme to remove the link from the carousel. I love the working of this, but me intention is to just have this scrolling without a link to any other page.

blueowlcreative

Are you referring to the Posts Carousel (Services)?

Default-user

The one found on the homepage, with the title “Featured Services” on the bottom.

blueowlcreative

Ok,

If you look at the shortcode used to create that carousel you will see this:

[posts_carousel heading="Featured Services" post_type="services" order_by="order" order="ASC" limit="10" meta="no" excerpt="yes" excerpt_char_limit="72" exclude_current="no" width="four columns" scroll_by="4"][/posts_carousel]

So it actually displays items from the SERVICES post type, the actual code for it is in the includes/shortcodes.php – “shortcode_posts_carousel” method. You could edit it and remove the link from the HTML it generates but you will lose that link anywhere else you use this shortcode… :)

Me again,

I tried to look through the comments to see if you already answered this question but there are just too many and too little time.

Is there a way to slow down the testimonial carousal? It’s a bit too fast to read my testimonials. Also, when I try to add more than two the format gets all messed up, do you have the code for three or four testimonials on one carousal?

Thanks again for all the help, you are very good with responses and I appreciate it.

Yes I tried searching the discussion and nothing came up. I was also unsuccessful at signing up. Is there a simpler way of learning how to slow down the timing of the testimonial carousal? Thanks so much for your help.

blueowlcreative

Hey,

Pasting the answer from that page:

Edit your Aqua/js/aqua.common.js file, find line:

auto: (is_auto_scroll ? 4 : 0),

And change “4” to as many seconds you want between the autoscroll events.

As to signing up, what is your email (send via my profile page) so I can enable your account! :)

i just installed wordpress today, purchased your theme , imported it into wordpress with the built in uploader and activated it. However my page looks nothing like the demo shown. Is there something i’m missing ? How do i get my site to look exactly like the demo, so i can start editing it ? Demo – http://themeforest.net/item/aqua-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-template/full_screen_preview/3649588 My site – http://chrisenrightplumbing.com/

BTW..i do not see any “read me” file or any “demo” content in my downloaded folder to upload the demo content. only images, php,css, and js files , unless its buried out of sight, i can not locate it

EDITED: Nevermind, i redownloaded the file, extracted again, and now i have the demo file ;)

Hi

Fantastic theme

I want the Recent Posts widget to be on all the pages. It looks ok on all the pages except for the home page, where the ‘Recent Posts’ text encroaches into the menu area above:

Thanks

I’ve had to remove the sidebar because the home page slider covered it, so now I have 2 issues

1. Is it possible to have the slider uder the menu but with the main content and sidebar underneath the slider?

2. How do I avoid the top of the sidebar sticking into the menu?

blueowlcreative

Hi Peter,

1. You can create a static page with columns below the slider (read the columns section in the documentation). 2. If you want to use the page+sidebar template then there’s a simple fix for the sidebar title issue: Edit your page_sidebar.php template and add after the first occurence of:

<?php endif; ?>

this code:


<?php if(is_front_page()): ?>    
 <div class="h20" />
 <div class="h20" />
<?php endif; ?>

Great theme! I have a quick question: how to disable/turn off mobile styling (one column) when viewed on mobile phones? This is a wonderful feature if someone needs it, but I just want the same look and feel on mobile phones as the desktop theme. Thanks for your help :)

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You can take off the ”@media” queries in your stylesheet.css and skeleton.css but you may still encounter some weird rendering issues when viewing with a smaller screen device … :)

I have been unable to locate the css style for 100% width images on mobile on your documentation or on your support forum. Can someone tell me what it is? I have images that say are 400px wide on desktop, but don’t scale for mobile view. Only thing I can do is width=”100%” but that sometimes (depending on setup of the page) scales the photo up obviously. Any help would be appreciated.

blueowlcreative

Hi,

If you want a responsive image on a page/post simply add a CSS class to it “scale-with-grid”.

I’m trying to add some icons onto my page but some of them don’t show up. I.E. Trying to add icon-checkbox, I entered code like so:

[feat_text title=”We Understand” icon=”checkbox”]

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this? Thank you!

blueowlcreative

Here you go buddy:

[feat_text title="Featured Title" icon="check" href=""]Featured Text[/feat_text]

Thank you so much! Worked perfectly. Also, can I edit the color of the ‘hover-link’? (When I hover the curser over the menu)

blueowlcreative

Which menu are you using, your URL, please? :)

Hi! I created a new Menu style and used that.

Under Portfolio Items…How would i get this to read something different on the page itself. Under the services page at the bottom it shows the header as “Portfolio Items” I would like to change this header to state something else but still using the portfolio items how do I change this?

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

Simply edit your includes/shortcodes.php file and search for:

("Portfolio Items", "Aqua")

Relpace the label here with whatever makes sense for you. :)

Hello, is there a way to show only a specific portfolio category in the portfolio carrousel?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Not at the moment, you could modify the shortcode to accept an extra param though in order to do it … :)

Hi there, simply make sure the path to your CSS file in your header.php is https instead of http. :)

Hi: I’ve purchased this theme and absolutely love the flexibility and ease of use!

one issue i seem to be having is that i can not get the category page for my posts to truncate, instead of show the full copy. i also want to remove the “Posted By: admin stuff” i was able to do it from the individual posts but not the category. Help! If you want to have a look: http://www.working-site.com/news-events/ (user: general password: test1)
blueowlcreative
Hi, what exactly do you want to truncate? If you mean the post content… you simply need to make sure you are using the “more” tag: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

As for removing the “posted by” bit, edit your index.php and remove this part:

<span class="author"><a href="<?php echo get_author_posts_url(get_the_author_meta('ID' )); ?>"><?php echo __('By ','Aqua');?> <?php the_author_meta('display_name'); ?></a></span>

Glad to hear you are digging the theme, make sure you rate it! ;)

Hello,

I purchased this template and love it. Is there any plans to add Instagram to social media options?

blueowlcreative

Hi, do you mean add that to the Icons in header options? You could do that yourself, or switch the icon image of one of the existing ones. :)

Another question, How can I change the “services” section on the admin to read Conferences as well as changing the link from:

http://burrellcenter.com.ixia.arvixe.com/bbh/services_item/trauma-issues-in-tlaquepaque-2013/

to read:

http://burrellcenter.com.ixia.arvixe.com/bbh/Conferences/trauma-issues-in-tlaquepaque-2013/

Is that difficult to do?

Thank you,

JW

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Renaming the slug for the services wouldn’t be hard… Hi,

The “services_item” url is set in the functions.php file. Change it their with what you want to use. Then you have to flush the rewrite rules. To do that I have prepared a special method in your functions.php file. All you have to do is uncomment this section:

function my_rewrite_flush() {
    flush_rewrite_rules();
}
add_action( 'after_switch_theme', 'my_rewrite_flush' );

Then change the theme to WP default, then switch back to Aqua, then comment back this section. Then your new URL should work! :)

johnworfin

Hello, I followed your directions and it still reads Services in the admin area and the url is still “services_item”.

Any ideas?

JW

blueowlcreative

Did you flush your rewrite rules + swap the themes etc.?

johnworfin

Yea, I tried it a couple of times and nothing changed.

blueowlcreative

I guess you may need to change all occurences of “services_item” throughout your theme then.

johnworfin

Hmm. I just searched the entire site for “services_item” and it did not come up with any results. Any chance you could take a look at it?

JW

johnworfin

I was able to change the name of Services to Conferences in the admin and it appears to be working fine-just havent been able to change the link name.

johnworfin

WAIT-Its working! Nevermind-thank you so much for your help!

blueowlcreative

Just tested, works like a charm, simply replace the slug, then flush your rewrite rules as explained above.

johnworfin

Yea, the problem was I was using custom urls for the conferences-LOL. Works like a charm-thanks!

Hi, My enrtreprise bought this template and i’ve to work on it. I would like to know how can we add something in the header, i would like to insert a text box to receive the newsletter, you see?

I don’t have the search bar in the header… Thanks for your help!

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

First off you need a plugin that implements the input box logic + saving the emails somehow etc… You then need to add it to the header, depending on how that plugin you will be using could be added… The file that shows the header logic is header.php if you need to add code to it. :)

Nice theme but i was wondering how can one disabled feature image on post page as the feature image on pst page make the post page bug and ugly.

blueowlcreative

What exactly do you mean by “the feature image on pst page make the post page bug and ugly”? Where are you looking? Yes, you can disable that image.

I had a question regarding the “add a person” feature. My site currently has one huge image. I was having a bit of trouble figuring out how make them smaller. I originally tried columns but to no avail… Also is it possible to add a link on the name and the image of a person?

Thanks for your help! :)

ps: is there an active supprort forum for this template?

blueowlcreative

Hey, are you a client of mine? :)

Default-user

Of course! In fact, it is the societey where i am working which is a client. Me, I am a web developper :)

blueowlcreative

Ok, cool, I guess you used a different user to puchase the theme… So you would need to modify the shortcode a bit by adding a new parameter that would hold the link.. Contact me via my profile page if you need further hints. :)

Default-user

Ok… I’m gonna try this but for right now I can’t see how I associate the link to the image and the second link to the title by adding one parameter. I’ll keep you in the loop! And what about the size of the person’s icon?

blueowlcreative

The shortcodes are in includes/shortcodes.php … Take a look at how the parameters are checked and processed there. The size is defined by the column size, you want to make it smaller?

Default-user

Yes I want it smaller ^^ I tried the column it seems to work sometimes but for example i would like one icon person (small size) at the middle of my page… I can’t use the column…

blueowlcreative

You could use empty column in the beginning, then your column, then another empty column! ;)
