Hi, Is this template compatible with BuddyPress? Thanks a lot

blueowlcreative

Hi, it surely isn’t incompatible but it’s not styled specifically for it if that’s what you want to know. :)

Default-user

Yes, thanks

I just purchased and installed the theme and I am on step 4 of the documentation (Importing the Demo Data) Step 1 says: Locate the file in the root folder of your package – “aquatheme.Demo_Data.xml”

There is no file of this name in the root, or for that matter, the entire zip package. There is, however, a file named aquatheme.wordpress.2013-07-09.xml in the DemoData folder. Is this the demo data file I should import? Thanks in advance!

blueowlcreative

Ya, that’s the latest one! :)

Hey there. It looks like the latest update may have the older JS code relating to the testimonial slider as the re-sizing issue is back!

Very inspiring theme BTW!

blueowlcreative

Hey, thanks for that, friend! I will look into and update later! ;)

blueowlcreative

Hi again, when do you exactly experience the resizing issue as I just tested and it seems fine on just resizing the browser width…

saltstream

Hey! I tested on Windows & Mac. Chrome and Safari using the current live demo: http://blueowlcreative.com/wp/aqua/

I uploaded a screenshot here: http://snag.gy/PWpB2.jpg

Cheers.

blueowlcreative

Thanks! Very strange, the first time I load it, same thing happens… funny thing is once you reload and resize it resizes just fine… And the code is just fine, I checked… :)

saltstream

Might be a slight conflict with one of the other theme resize functions? I had something similar happen in a current project but I could get to the bottom of it using the console.

blueowlcreative

Does it happen with you just on the first load as well?

saltstream

Everything is perfect when the page loads and it’s fine if you reload the browser after resizing.

blueowlcreative

hmmm, straaange! :)

saltstream

Ahhh. OK. Move this resize function anywhere except at the end of the end of the file as the window size is already sent to the browser!

saltstream

Actually, as long as it’s before the bar graph function!

blueowlcreative

Ok, will test that… so simply attach the event on page load… :)

saltstream

I moved the // Reload carousels on window resize function just before // Bar graph in the aqua.common.js file and all is good now.

blueowlcreative

ya, I did too on the Demo, all is looking good, thanks for your feedback again! :)

I purchased Aqua theme and I am having trouble understanding how to install the various elements like Accordions, Client Testimonials, and the different Icons. I am looking in the documentation file and do not see any instructions. Are they there and I am missing them?

blueowlcreative

The shortcodes are used via the custom icons in the editor… See the examples in the documentation, you simply click on an icon for a shortcode, then customize the parameters! :)

Gallery Lightbox doesn’t work well on mobile. images are tiny and there is a lots of unused space. Do you plan an update to make portfolio usable on mobile devices?

blueowlcreative

Hey,

This is the responsive mode of the plugin – http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/ and it works just fine, if the zoomed image is too small on some devices a user has the option to further enlarge it via the top right icon.

there is a problem with iPad. It deforms pictures. Landscape images become square which distorts the objects. Not the perfect plugin IMHO!

blueowlcreative

Hi there, thanks for the feedback, feel free to implement another lightbox plugin if you want… :)

Hi.

I found out that the website I have finished is not showing properly in Mozilla Firefox browser. Please, could you check on this issue using Firefox. The link is here: BlueSeaCap. Everything works fine in Chrome, but in Firefox the whole post carousel under Recent news title is messed up. Please, help me resolve this issue.

Regards

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

You must have fixed it as looking at it right now seems fine on FF… ? :)

Default-user

Hi, no I didn’t :) The problem still persists. Could you give me some mail address so I can send you the screenshot of the problem? Thank you please see the photo on this link so you can see what I’m talking about: Problem

blueowlcreative

oh, wow! :) Use the contact form on my profile page.

Default-user

sorry there is no need for sending you the photo. you can see it in the link I have written. sorry for the mess in my message :)

blueowlcreative

duhh… :) sorry! Just checked it my friend and looks fine under my FF… what version are you using???

Default-user

this is client’s FF and he says he is using 22.0

blueowlcreative

wow… I am using 22.0 as well + win7… weird!!!

Default-user

hm strange. I don’t know what to tell the client now (except that you don’t have that issue :)) any idea where the problem could be? maybe resolution of the screen? or something like that…

blueowlcreative

Do you get the isssue??

Default-user

No, I’m using Chrome and everything works fine.

blueowlcreative

Well, can you look in FF as well, it’s your client, no?

Hi,

Is this how it’s supposed to look after being installed? http://ivrgenie.com

I thought it would look closer to the demo version.

Thanks

blueowlcreative

Hey, you are pretty close, yes, you can create your own custom Menu for the main navigation: Appearance->Menus, then customize your colors etc.

I ended up using a different wp importer called WP Re-Importer. The site was just a frame with out any pictures before I used that.

Hello!

what is the code to make the shortcode icon left align next to a featured text? (these icons: http://blueowlcreative.com/wp/aqua/elements/icons/) when i insert using short code, it just floats random.

how do I make the checklist align inline with the column (it’s sticking out to the left too much) inside a featured text column?

Hi there, are you a client of mine? :)

Hi blueowlcreative,

More than 24 hours ago, I posted two questions on your website’s support forum. But it looks like you are answering questions here on Themeforest, but not on your own website. Shall I post my questions here instead? A few other people are waiting for your support as well. Please go take a look. Thank you!

blueowlcreative

Hey, thanks for the office management input. I am answering questions here and there at different times of the day. Yes, everything is answered there as well now.

Hi, I wasn’t meant to be rude or anything. I was looking everywhere to see if anyone else had asked similar questions. Then I saw you answered questions here within 24 hours. Hence my “office management input” :)

Ok, I have posted the following answer to your question in support forum, please let me know your solution: As the JS has to be applied to each one individually…

What widget(s) do you want to add it to?

Hi, I have added Category, Recent Posts and Recent Comments to the sidebar. The Category widget has arrow icon and animation effect. But Recent Posts and Recent Comments widgets have no arrow icon or animation effect, only plain text links. I would love it to have at least the arrow icons to make every widget look the same. Could you please teach me how to change stylesheet.css to make this happen? Thanks a lot!

blueowlcreative

Replied to you mate. :)

Hi blueowlcreative,

If I disable JavaScript in web browser, the navigation bar stops working (drop-down menus don’t pop out). In fact, a lot of features stop working.

I know many people disable JavaScript for security reasons. How should I customize CSS to make drop-down menus work?

Also, the sidebar menus become plain text links when JavaScript is disabled. I would like them to at least display ”>” arrow icons to make the list look nicer. Could you advice how to achieve this?

Thank you for your help!

blueowlcreative

Nobody disables Javascript anymore, it’s essential and like 90%+ of effects + Ajax + etc wouldn’t be possible without it, have you tried posting a comment here without JS? :)

Default-user
rhw999 Purchased

I enabled JS because I trust you and themeforest :) But many people use NoScript with Firefox and they won’t enable JS for unknown websites. So, when they visit my site, they will see no drop down menu, which is still Ok because I also use sidebar menus to display links. But I would appreciate it if you could help me make sidebar menu items look nicer with ”>” arrow icons. Could you tell me how to do it?

blueowlcreative

Which widget, I though I showed you for the latest posts and as for the comments I told you it doesn’t make much sense as not the whole text is a link…

Default-user
rhw999 Purchased

Hi blueowlcreative,

I didn’t make myself clear. Because of what you said about the comment widget, I decide to disable sidebar navigation JS effect and create sidebar menu with plain text links and put a ”>” arrow icon on the left of each link.

I have two related questions:

(1) in js/aqua.common.js, I find two places related to Sidebar:

// Sidebar Menu (line 23 to 25) // Sidebar Nav effects (line 77 to 85)

Which of these lines should I delete (or not delete) in order to stop animation effect of sidebar menu?

(2) How can I display ”>” arrow icon on the left of each plain text menu link? I have figured out the Recent Comments widget: add the following lines to .recentcomments

padding: 4px 0px 4px 19px; background: url(’../images/arrow.png’) 2px 7px no-repeat;

But I cannot figure out Category, Recent Posts and Custom Menu Links widgets. Could you tell me how to do it?

Thank you very much for your help!

Default-user
rhw999 Purchased

Any comments on my two questions?

blueowlcreative

Hi again,

Now you want to stop the animation??

To display an arrow for each LI item you need to add just that, yes:


#recentcomments li{
padding: 4px 0px 4px 19px;
background: url(’../images/arrow.png’) 2px 7px no-repeat;
}

Something along those lines…

I use this theme, however am having trouble with their sidebars and widgets. Create different sidebars for use on specific pages, however when I use the post and saved, then they desconfiguram. I insert widgets (categories of posts for example) and this widget add new bar that I created. How to fix this problem? Thank you.

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

Do you have a URL I could look into? At the page where the selected Sidebar doesn’t come up are you using the Portfolio Carousel?

Hey guys! I have a short question:

I want to change the favicon.png? I edited the file with photoshop and I saved it with the same name. I opened Filezilla … Aqua/images/favicon.png and replaced it … and refreshed the page a lot of time. —Nothing happend : ///

blueowlcreative

Hi there, browser cache the favicons … How about you simply change it from the Theme Options… :)

Hi blueowlcreative,

I add a Search widget in siderbar (header has search box, but I replace it with something else).

With Aqua theme, the “submit” button is missing from search widget in sidebar. How do I get it back? I know the original WP Twenty Twelve theme has that button. So I guess it’s hidden by Aqua theme?

blueowlcreative

Hey, yes, I have removed it so that the search looks just like the one in the header… You can put it back on if you like but you may need to adjust the styles a bit… :)

Default-user
rhw999 Purchased

Before I adjust style sheet, can you tell me which PHP file in your theme that needs to be modified and what codes need to be added in order to bring back the search button?

blueowlcreative

You can see it with Firebug, it’s right there in the HTML, and simply remove the “display: none;” rule that hides it.

How can I add recaptcha to the Aqua contact form so it validates the recaptcha also? Seem to be getting a lot of spam via the form. Any help is appreciated.

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

The whole contact form is in your contact.php template. You can implement recaptcha by following the guidelines here: https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/php

Good luck!

Hi,

For every image I insert and upload in a post, the /wp-content/uploads/ directory is polluted with 5 additional images named in different sizes: 300×180, 460×290, 580×300, 580×340, 60×60. This seems to be Aqua related, because my other site with another theme doesn’t have such behavior.

At first I thought this was for smart phone and tablet display. But testing shows that image simply scales down and becomes blurring on smaller screens.

Did I misunderstand or mis-configure something? Please advice. Thank you!

Default-user
rhw999 Purchased

Ok, I have reviewed those additional images. They are cut-off versions of my original uploaded image. So, definitely not for smartphones or tablets. How can I stop them from being automatically created and loaded into the /wp-content/uploads/ directory?

blueowlcreative

Hi there, Some of those are used throughout some of the theme-related shortcodes … If you are not using them you can switch them off in the functions.php file:


add_image_size('small-thumb', 60, 60, true);  
add_image_size('portfolio-main', 700, 340, true);
add_image_size('portfolio-medium', 460, 290, true);
add_image_size('portfolio-thumb', 300, 180, true);
add_image_size('portfolio-full', 940, 600, true);

Hi Blueowlcreative, I added your codes in functions.php, but my site still generate those additional images. Should there be a line of “disable_image” or something? I am not a coder, please help me out!

blueowlcreative

No, these are already there in order to generate the sizes… You can remove whatever you are sure you are not using! :)

Default-user
rhw999 Purchased

Oh, I misunderstood you ;) Can this “remove” action be done in Child theme’s functions.php? It would nice to keep your original functions.php file untouched for easy upgrade in the future. Thanks!

blueowlcreative

Hey,

Not sure if the add_image_size method gets overwritten in the child’s theme, you can surely give it a try though by testing. :)

I just wanted to take a moment to say how absolutely thrilled I am with Blue Owl Creative and their recent theme.

I purchased the Aqua theme. It’s a perfect theme for my needs – aesthetic, clean, balanced, organized, versatile, simple to customize, and well coded. The UI is intuitive. I have never come across a better theme – this one seriously rocks.

When I ran into what seemed to be a minor coding kerfuffle, BOC went above and beyond to help me fix the problem. They were personable, communicative, and timely in responding. They genuinely stood behind their product and were willing to do whatever it took to make feel confident about my purchase.

My experience in the past has been, that many theme owners make you feel as if you’re bothering them when you ask for support. This was not the case with BOC. Truly, the best support I have EVER received from any theme creator, be it through ThemeForest or any other site.

Thank you Blue Owl Creative, I am happy to recommend you! :)
