Hi,

I’m having issues locating the Revolution Slider plugin. It says it’s included, but I can’t find it to upload.

Please let me know! Thanks, Alissa

Hi Alissa,

When you’ve unpacked the downloaded zip file, you will find the revolution slider plugin file inside. It’s a zip file which goes by the name of ‘revslider’.

Hi, it is possible to make FEATURED SERVICES in 2 Rows? Currently it’s 4 Column x 1 Row. Can make it 4 Column x 2 Rows?

Thanks, Fizi

Hi, the carousel is meant to work in 1 row… Such a customization might turn out to be time consuming, you may undertake it only if you feel comfortable with coding and know your way around WP/CSS/php… :)

Hi,

I bought this theme to match with your online shop Aquacart theme. I found there is too much white space between the header and the menu. Can you tell me where in the stylesheet I can make the change.

Thanks.

blueowlcreative

Hey,

You could edit your header.php and find the div with classes: “header row”. Then add this to it: “style=’margin-bottom: 6px;” or as much as you want to leave, as it inherits the 20px from the row class. :)

Hi blueowlcreative,

How do I completely uninstall Aqua?

I messed up some codes and the theme behave strangely. So I uninstalled it from WordPress admin panel. Then I uploaded and reinstalled it, but I noticed that my previously customized settings were still there and the theme still behaved strangely.

I would like to completely uninstall it and hope that will solve the problem of strange behavior. Could you tell me how to clean up Aqua installation? Digging into phpMyAdmin? I am not familiar with database stuff. Please help me out. Thank you!

Default-user

The problem has to do with my Child theme. Once I delete child theme, the original Aqua works just fine.

What I did with child theme before the strange behavior happened:

At the beginning, I put the following lines in child theme’s style.css

@import url(“stylesheets/skeleton.css”); @import url(“stylesheets/stylesheet.css”); @import url(“stylesheets/flexslider.css”); @import url(“stylesheets/prettyPhoto.css”); @import url(“stylesheets/carousel.css”);

And my child theme worked just fine with the above codes until today… I decided to delete these codes to see if it’s OK because the parent theme’s style.css has these codes already.

Then, the problem started. My site’s page layout became disoriented and navigation bar became a list of text links…

So, I think I need to clean up what left behind by Child theme. Do you have any suggestions?

blueowlcreative

Hey,

Sure, just clean up your child theme or start from scratch, make sure you find at what point the issue occurs so you can avoid it. :)

Default-user

The question is… How do I clean up child theme. I have tried several times to delete child theme and reinstall child style.css from scratch. But every time I reinstall child theme, the problem came back again. The same child theme style.css worked perfectly until I tried to delete thoese five ”@import url”. I even tried to delete Aqua parent theme and reinstalled both parent and child theme again. But nothing helps. I think something is left behind after I deleted Aqua. And this “something” prevents child theme from functioning again. Any ideas?

blueowlcreative

Why would you delete them? Simply overwrite the rules you want changed in your child theme…

Great theme! I do have a question though, my client is complaining that the responsive menu is not working on his Android phone. Is anybody else having this issue? Is there a quick fix? Thanks!

Hi,

What exactly is the problem, may I see the URL please? :)

Hi blueowlcreative,

Checking the source code of my web pages, I find the following in header:

<meta name="description" content="" />

Then I look into header.php file and find:

<meta name="description" content="<?php bloginfo('description'); ?>" />

It seems that Aqua theme tries to grab bloginfo(‘description’) from somewhere but cannot find it.

Does Aqua provide a function for me to write description and fill out the blank content=”” in each and every web page?

blueowlcreative

Hey,

Your best route is installing a plugin like SEO-Yoast, it overwrites all defaults and lets you micromanage your Metas on all pages etc! :)

Hi,

On Category page, I would like to display customized excerpt for each post. But I don’t want to use the More tag. I mean, I will write unique excerpt in the Edit Post panel and display this excerpt on Category page.

How can make this happen?

Thanks!

blueowlcreative

Hi,

I would search for a plugin that lets you enter some text in a custom field (or create on yourself if you know how to). Then edit the index.php (the template that shows the excerpts) and instead of showing content or the excerpt from the content show that one new field! :)

Default-user

Hi,

I looked through Aqua’s index.php but couldn’t find “get_the_excerpt” or similar code. What should I add to show excerpts?

By the way, in Edit Post page, there’s an Excerpt box where I can manually type in the words. I just need to show these words in Category page.

Thanks!

Default-user

Ok, I found the following code from another premium theme’s index.php:

<?php if (is_home() || is_singular()) {the_content();} else {the_excerpt((‘ยป Read more…’));} ?>

Is this something I should add to Aqua’s index.php?

I am not a coder, so if you could just write a line or two for me, and tell me where to copy and paste :) I will greatly appreciate it!

Thank you!

blueowlcreative

Hey,

Like I said, first you need a backend functionality that would take in your custom text that you want displayed… The piece of code that shows the excerpt within the Loop is this:

<?php the_content(); ?>

When using the MORE TAG it doesn’t show the whole content but up to wherever you put the tag… it is not related with the “excerpt” functionality.

So once you have your custom field that would store your custom text you would print that out instead of the_content();

Default-user
rhw999 Purchased

Hi, appreciate your reply!

Maybe I didn’t express clearly… my custom text will be typed into the text box called “Excerpt” which already exists in WordPress default “Edit Post” page after I login Admin area.

So I don’t need to create a backend functionality. All I need is to have Aqua display the excerpt (not the More tag stuff). But as of now, the Category page will display FULL text of each post. There is no way to display excerpts (I don’t want to use More tag).

Hopefully I have made myself understandable :)

blueowlcreative

Oh, ok,

Have you tried replacing

<?php the_content(); ?>

with

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

then? :)

Default-user

That works. Thank you!

By the way, WordPress 3.6 is released. Is Aqua theme compatible? Any known issue?

blueowlcreative

Ya, it’s compatible, sure! :)

Hey,

I am having some troubles with the Revolution slider for my homepage. It seems that whatever slider I pick, the slider on the homepage is 1420×450px (approximately) and stretches the slider images I make.

Site: http://fortiphi.notothequo-testsite.com/

I have tried changing the dimensions on the slider settings but no change. I have imported your slider settings from the .txt file but it seems like the slider is unresponsive to the dimensions I put in there.

Can you help me figure out what I need to do to get the slider to show my slides properly?

Thanks

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

You simply need to wrap it in a row container like so:

[row_container dark="no" rev_slider_holder="yes"][rev_slider slider_full_width][/row_container]

Just purchased this theme. For some reason I am having trouble with the sidebar. I created a sidebar. Found it in the widget area. Dragged the widgets I want to appear. Go to the page make sure the correct sidebar is selected. Nothing shows. Has anyone had any problems like this for this theme. I’ve used customs sidebars many times before, but am I missing something???? Need help fast!

blueowlcreative

Hey,

May I see your URL please?

Default-user

Thank you for the quick response. One think I forgot to add was when I save the widget, and after refresh the page, it automatically goes into the Inactive Sidebar (Not Used) area.

here is my URL: http://scvcarpetcleaning.com/site/

Thank you for your quick response.

blueowlcreative

What is the page in question? What is an “Inactive Sidebar”? :)

Default-user

I’m working on the home page right now, and as for the “inactive sidebar” that is a section that shows up in widgets area

blueowlcreative

Have you chosen the page+sidebar template for your home page??

Default-user

Yes I feel like I’ve tried anything, I think I saw another recent comment down below of someone having similar issues

Default-user

this is a new site so wordpress 3.6 is installed, is this theme compatible with 3.6…idk if that could be a problem…i really like this theme but may need to buy another

blueowlcreative

What is the page in question, there is a small bug that causes the sidebar to show the default one if you have a portfolio carousel on the page, I would love to help out but you need to give me the page you are talking about + maybe provide credentials for me to look into your admin (you can use my profile page contact form)! :)

Hey blueowlcreative! I have a short question agian ;)!?

I want to creat a splashpage for my site. The splashpage should only include the Slider (I’m using the rev_slider). I started editing the page.php:

You wrote:

  • A Full Width custom page template without sidebar. * @package WordPress */

This is exactly what i want … BUT i also don’t want the Navigation , logo, ... I only want a huge slider one my splashpage ;)

I tried to delet the > get_header(); < but with this action my slider gets lost.

May im completly wrong … I’m not an expert at this _

Hope u can help me with that! greetings markus
blueowlcreative

First off you would copy the page.php template into a new one, say splash.php, then rename it in the header comments of the file (the name) again… Then you can choose this new template for your splash page. Once you edit it, you can further experiment by removing the whole head section or parts of it… Removing the “get_header();” should really remove your content…

i created a new php file … example: <?php

/* Template Name: splash_page */

get_header(); ?> 1. I removed the get_footer 2. I opened the header.php, copied it and paste it into a knew file (header2) 3. Renamed get_header into get_header2 but it doesn’t like this.

Hey markus,

I don’t think that will work… Just manually add whatever is in your header2 file within the splash_page template’s top and work it out like that. :)

Hi,

I have purchased this theme a couple of weeks ago and am just now getting to play with it. I read the comments above, but I don’t see anything called “revslider” in the Aqua file. I see something called flexslider but it looks like that is just a style sheet? Am I just overlooking the revslider zip file?

blueowlcreative

The actual plugin is in the Root folder of the package you download from TF! :)

Hi, I’m having a few problems with the dynamic sidebar… I created a sidebar following the instructions and nothing happened, it just displays the default sidebar. I removed the page content (no other changes) and then the sidebar appears, but it appears on the left instead of the right side (which I selected). As soon as I reinsert the page content (simple copy/paste), the dynamic sidebar on the left disappears and then the default reappears on the right. I have not changed any code at all as yet, just been trying the inbuilt options. I have read through your support forum and not found a resolution for this. J

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

What is your URL, there is a small bug that I will be releasing a fix for pretty soon, please contact me via my profile page with your URL so I can take a look! :)

Default-user

I have just edited the default sidebar for now as it’s a small build, so it’s no longer a problem. If it becomes a problem again then I will be in touch. thanks

I’m considering purchasing this theme. One question, though, is there a way to disable the responsive option?

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

Responsive view cannot be turned off very easily as it’s a founding part of the CSS framework used within the theme – Skeleton. Of course removing all @media queries will get you half way there but you will need to further tweak some more elements to totally misplace the Responsive functionality … Something I would only recommend if you have substantial CSS knowledge. :) Thanks for your interest!
