I have a question about an SSL problem. I’m getting an SSL error on one of my pages.

It’s happening because of mixed http and https assets.

Basically some of the images on the page are being pulled in as http on an https page. I had some hard coded images on the page that I incorrectly assigned as http. I fixed those and still got the error.

Then I used firebug to inspect the elements. The social media icons from the theme on the top and bottom are being pulled in as http. These are coming in through settings so I don’t know how to change that.

The theme’s logo and RSS images ARE coming through as https though. It’s just the social icons.

Please advise what to do. Thanks.

Hi,

You are the one that sets the URLs of the social icons under theme options so simply add the HTTPS protocole there. ;)

Default-user

Looks like I can control the destination URL, but not the source image URL. That appears to be handles elsewhere in the theme. I am talking about the images themselves, not what they link to. Thanks.

blueowlcreative

The actual images are set by CSS and are with relative paths… What am I missing? :)

Default-user

that’s what I needed to know. I just wanted to know wether it was set in CSS or PHP and where. I’ll start digging in the css. Thanks.

Also, why do bullets not work on blogs… actually most short codes don’t.

blueowlcreative

It’s just the bullets, but for that simply use the “list” shortcode from the Theme specific shortcodes. The reason I removed the default bullets styling is because the carousels create lists and they get messed up. :)

Default-user

sounds good. Thanks.

Is there some specific setting to make my site responsive? It looks terrible on a cell phone?

Thanks,

Hi,

Your website is responsive, the elements you have added are not, like the links in the header and the slider, make your slider Responsive in its settings and make sure the elements you add to your header have their custom styling for responsive screens in the bottom of the stylesheet.css, you can style the way you want them to look in smaller resolutions. :)

johnworfin

ok, I found how to make the slider responsive-but the only added elements to the header are the physician referral form link? And I guess the logo? also, on portrait view, the screen is only using around 2/3 of the width….landscape is pretty good on my cell phone. What is screwing up the portrait layout? Sorry, this is my first site using responsive!

blueowlcreative

Hi your slider is still not very responsive, you can check my demo slider to see the sizes you need to define, as it’s currently still bulging out in the tablet mode. Like i said the link you added in the header, you need to define it some responsive styles to fix it.

johnworfin

so, I need to define my slider yet further in the css instead of just checking responsive on the settings? What about the width of the page when viewing on a cell in portrait? How do I fix that? Just my defining the one link I added to the header?

blueowlcreative

The slider settings once you click Responsive are below, for the different resolutions you set its width, like i said, you can see mine in the Demo slider once you import it. For the one link in the header define your CSS, look at my definitions for the different elements in the header within the css file, both normal and responsive ones.

johnworfin

Can you just tell me what the values are in your demo slider so I dont have to import it? Would be a great help! Thanks

blueowlcreative

940 – 400, 959 – 748, 767 – 420, 480 – 300

johnworfin

Awesome-thank you.

johnworfin

What is the easy way to just turn off the responsive, so the site just resizes everything down to fit on a screen depending on size? I know that will make it hard to use the site, but at least that way it wil look like the “normal” sized window site, just smaller.

blueowlcreative

Removing all media queries in all your CSS files, I strongly suggest you don’t though as the CSS framework used by default is responsive. You should simply comply with the few rules to keep everything responsive and you will be fine.

Hi BOC How do I remove the search box from the page header? Can you highlight the code from the index.php which I need to remove please. Thanks Matt

blueowlcreative

Hi, you have a setting for it in the ThemeOptions I believe. :)

blueowlcreative

If not add this to your Custom Styles box:

.header_search {
display: none;
}

hi there, are there any video tutorials on this theme?

Thanks

blueowlcreative

No, it’s documentation is very simple and well written though, plus I am here to help if you get stuck. :)

Hi! I just bought your theme for my dad’s business website. I have a few questions.

1. The Revolution Slider shows the right picture, but only the top of the picture. How many pixels should the image be to be fully seen in the Revolution Slider?

2. The langauge of the Contact Page Template is English. So ‘Contact’ ‘Subject’ and so on are in English. How can I change these words to Dutch?

3. In the footer I see a link to your website and the words ‘Aqua Theme © 2013’. How can I change this? I can’t find it in Widgets—> Footer, because there seems to be nothing in the footer areas.

Thanks in advance!

blueowlcreative

Hi Rosalinde,

1. You mean the bgr or a front image in the slider. You can import the Demo data, it’ll be a great starting point for you to get comfortable with sizes and what goes where… 2. You can hardcode them in there, or if you are to use language translation and multi language, you could follow the steps in the Documentation on how to translate your website/labels. 3. There’s an option for that under Theme options.

Good luck! :)

My contact form does not seem to be working?

http://www.burrellcenter.com/contact-us/

I have tested using several different emails and trying to leave the contact email blank as well as filled in to no avail?

Also, is there a re-direct or a “thank you for contacting us” message?

JW

blueowlcreative

What happens? Have you modified your contact.php script?

johnworfin

nothing happens. The page loads for a bit-then the blank contact page shows up. No message the message went through, and never recieved an email. No, I have not modified it.

blueowlcreative

Can you debug printing out the POST array to see if the data is coming it at all?

johnworfin

you lost me…no idea how to do that

blueowlcreative
print_r($_POST);

in the php code at the top of your script

i take it the theme is woocommerce compatible ? I have already purchased it (some time ago) and am now ready to install and set it up.

thanks

Ian

blueowlcreative

Hi Ian, the theme doesn’t come woocommerce out of the box as clearly stated in the description. You could make it work with it though provided you have the sufficient knowledge. Good luck! :)

I’m trying to add portfolio categories into menu. It worked very easily when I did so last time in the “Appearance—menu” sections. But the option of portfolio category disappeared from the menu section when I re-installed the theme after some other problem occurred(not caused by Aqua Theme). The “Portfolio Category” in menu section is gone, how can I get it back?

blueowlcreative

hi,

Make sure it’s checked under SCREEN OPTIONS (top right). :)

the color of tag is the same as the color of simple text,vistor can not differentiate between them,can you give me a solution to fix it?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You could easily change that in your stylesheet.css file or your Custom CSS under Theme options:


a, a:visited {
color: red;
}
Default-user

is red the best choice?

blueowlcreative

That is up to you to decide, I just gave you an example. :)

Hello BlueOwl,

I would like to use one of the pages as a landing page by eliminating the nav menu and the search bar. Is there a css code I can use to accomplish this with that particular page?

Thank you in advance

blueowlcreative

Well you could do it yourself, how about:


#menu, .header_search {
display: none;
}

How can i change footer layout? I want 3 widget instead of 4.

blueowlcreative

Hi,

You could edit your footer.tpl and replace the 4 “four columns” divs with 3 “one-third” columns! :)

Default-user

I’ve found footer.php but not footer.tpl, where is it?

blueowlcreative

Are you using AquaCart, cuz you posted in the WP version, Aqua?

Default-user

I’m using aqua theme for wordpress

blueowlcreative

My bad, footer.php it is! :)

Default-user

so i have to change in three columns and then i delete “footer widget 4”, right?

Default-user
i’ve tried but the column size is like the four columns http://imgur.com/uT5Y6iU This is how i wrote:
Default-user

div class=”1/3 columns”

blueowlcreative
<div class="one-third column">....</div>
Default-user

it doesn’t work, it remains like the picture i sent in the last message…

blueowlcreative

Hi again,

Make sure you remove the width in your stylesheet.css file here:

#footer .column

How do I move the main navbar up towards the logo?

I have tried several different classes and ID’s and cannot seem to get it to move up?

What class or ID do I need to alter within the css?

http://clarityrecovery.org.ixia.arvixe.com/

Thanks

blueowlcreative

Hola! You could enther something like this in your Theme Options -> Custom CSS styles:

.header.row {
margin-bottom: 5px;
}

:)

johnworfin

WOOT-that did it! Thank you!
