Hi Again, I seem to have sorted how up add images to the flexislider on the Featured Services pages (via “uploaded to this post” drop down menu). So when I upload additional image via that method they are added to the image slider on the page.

BUT it does not seem to be working the same for Portfolio pages. It doesn’t matter how many images I add to the post only one appears in the image slider.

blueowlcreative

Hi, it should be just the same for Gallery Portfolio items, you add the images via the Featured image component, you can then view them in the Uploaded to This Post section… Do you have a URL I can look at?

Default-user

sure, it’s www.phgp.co.uk/furey

Default-user

also, is is possible to add a logo to the footer? or should that be done with an additional plug-in? many thanks

blueowlcreative

Hi again,

Can’t seem to open your link mate… BTW are you selecting the Gallery Type of Portfolio Item (in the right)? You could add a logo in your footer, sure. You could either do it via the widget screen Text Widget, simply enter an image Tag linking to your image source, or manually do it by editing your footer.php and adding it there to one of the footer columns! :)

Default-user

hi there, sorry it’s http://www.phgd.co.uk/furey/ thanks for the logo advice too

blueowlcreative

Great, looking good so far! :)

Hi! I’m having problems with the contact form with wordpress-3.8.1. When I test it I don’t get any mail. I try puting my corporate mail in Contact Page / Email adress and also leaving my default gmail adress, and I still don’t get any mail. Thanks!

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Are you testing locally or on a production server, if it’s local, you probably don’t have a mail server set up… the form uses the default WP mail function! :)

Default-user

I done it, thanks! Now I have another question: I’m trying to change the button class in the Contact form from “sm_button” to “button_hilite”. Im trying to change it in the code of the contact.php but I haven’t succed. This is what I’ve got:

<input name=”submit” type=”submit” id=”submit” value=”<?php _e(‘Enviar’, ‘Aqua’); ?>” class=”button_hilite”>

</form>
blueowlcreative

Hi, what is the problem there? You need to still keep the initial “button” class as well I think…. like so: “button button_hilite”

Default-user

Hi. I want to change the button class in the Contact page from “sm_button” to “button_hilite”, but I can’t. I tried doing that, but it didn’t work. This is what I’ve got in the contact.php>

<input name="submit" type="submit" id="submit" value="<?php _e('Enviar', 'Aqua'); ?>" class="button button_hilite">

</form>

blueowlcreative

Hi again,

What is your URL? :)

Default-user

Sure: http://www.forymar.cl/contacto/

(thanks for your kind support!)

blueowlcreative

Oh, I got it, cuz it’s an input, not an anchor element… Edit your stylesheet.css file and modify this:


.button_hilite, a.button_hilite {
background-color: #0ad1e5;
}

to


.button_hilite, a.button_hilite, input[type="submit"].button_hilite {
background-color: #0ad1e5;
}

and do so for the hover state. ;) You are welcome, I would appreciate it if you rated my theme if you are enjoying it! :)

Hey,

Is it possible to extend the main navigation bar so that there is less padding? And therefore can fit more pages on the menu all the way across instead of falling below the homepage?

Thank you, (I can’t change the font size any smaller because it becomes unreadable)

blueowlcreative

sure, but you would get an unpleasant misalignment… Edit your header.php. The holder of the navigation is a div with classes “dark_menu sixteen columns”, add another class in there and style it with a greater width than 940, overwriting the default width. You could then give it a bit of negative margin-left in order to center it … not sure how you would align it with the rest of the elements though. :)

Default-user

Hey, I found this div class in the header file. And to be honest I don’t know much css. Is there a simple way to learn or make the width great than 940?

blueowlcreative
Well that’s the way to go, simlpy add a new class there, then declare that class in your Custom CSS box under Theme Options (or your stylesheet.css file) like so:

.new_class {
width: 980px;
margin-left: -20px;
}

You can further experiment with this till you are happy! I would still try to reduce the default padding within the items though, as this solution will misalign your sections. :)

Default-user

Hey, Ok so I added the new class example that you provided in the header.php file right underneath where it says -Main Navigation- as well as the Custom CSS box. The line of code is now appearing just above the main navigation bar. Did I place it in the wrong spot? (I tried several other spots in the header.php file but the new class never modified the nav bar

blueowlcreative

You have a URL I can take a look at?

Default-user

Yes here it is, http://demo.socaldigitalmarketing.com/

Thank you for all the support! (I gave your design 5 stars for the helpful support)

blueowlcreative

Hi there, thanks! :) So, do you insist on the 22px of font-size for the navigation? With 18px it fits just fine, you can do 19px if you remove the home icon or reduce the padding of the items, if you want to go with resizing the navigation… Remove that 990 class you have there… i add the styles under the style attribute like so:


<div style="width: 1030px;margin-left: -44px;" />

Play around with smth like that till you get it right… Also the .new_class thing was supposed to go into your Theme Options-> Custom CSS in the Admin, provided you named your class new_class instead of 990. :) Honestly I would revert back to the old header.php (you can take it from the package you downloaded) and roll with a font 18px or reorganize the menu to have fewer top level items if you totally insist on the 22px font size as resizing the navigation like so may cause the responsive mode of the site (resize your browser to smaller width) to look awkward. Good luck! :)

Default-user

You are the best! That worked, I had to make the font size 20x but by making the width and the left margin wider it fit. Hopefully the responsive mode doesn’t look too bad from the resizing

blueowlcreative

hi, You could resize your browser to test. :)

Hi there, i’m just playing around with the image slider that comes with the theme, and wondered what controls the depth of the images?

thanks

blueowlcreative

Hi,

It’s basically the order that you put them in the slider that dictates their depth… I usually go in order of their appearance and depth when building my sliders. :)

Hi, I want to add a video next to a “Big Title”. Is it possible to have Big Title 2 column big?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Like how exactly, you could create 2 columns, then place your Big Title in one and the video in the other… :)

Hi Paul, I am really not a specialist on how to achieve the Google breadcrumbs, although I do agree they look great, they have some guidelines on what the crawler should look for no? :)

Hi,

Thank you again for the quick support the other day.

I have another issue, I would like to resize the thumbnails generated when you click on a portfolio item (to go to it’s post). I’d also like to re-define the size for the “large”, “medium”, and “small” for featured images, which is what I think I may need to do anyway.

Thank you!

blueowlcreative

Hi,

What you need to do is find them in functions.php, they are actually custom named … look for “portfolio-full” ;) Then you need to regenerate your thumbs via a plugin.

Default-user

Thank you!

So I’ve changed this (lines 74-79 in functions.php):

set_post_thumbnail_size(430, 300, true); //size of thumbs 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’, 430, 307, true); // this is what I changed

Then I used the Force Regenerate Thumbnails plugin, waited until it was done, and then reloaded/reopened a page to test it. It hasn’t changed though. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to change anything in single-portfolio.php (prettyPhoto)?

Default-user

Also, it may not be relevant, but I can see where Force Regenerate Thumbnails generated the size I specified, so it seems like something happened.

blueowlcreative

Your URL please? :)

Default-user
http://vadentist.com/

The specific URLs I’m speak of are:

http://vadentist.com/our-doctors/ (link to portfolio) http://vadentist.com/portfolio_item/stephanie-voth-d-d-s-m-s/ (link to specific image not being resized)
blueowlcreative

The image you have uploaded here has not even been resized as it’s too small in the first place. All you need to do to make your image show smaller if you are to use the single_portfolio.php template to display personal pages is actually edit it and replace the “ten columns” classes to say … “five columns” then the div that holds the content (text) and is “five columns” make that “ten columns” I would roll back to the old image sizes as well… Those are used only if your images are big … in your case they are not even generated for this specific usage. :)

Default-user

Thanks! I wanted the images too be that exact size (bc it generated the look my boss wanted on the filterable portfolio page), and to adjust the theme parameters to match it. I took your advice and changed ten column classes to five column classes, then gave the extra space created to “the content” div. Exactly what I (my boss) wanted! Thank you! :)

blueowlcreative

You are welcome, glad to hear I could help, rate the theme if you haven’t yet! Thanks!

Default-user

I rated it 5 stars and wrote some comments about why :) Thanks again!

Great theme! Thanks! Added accordions to my site using the accordion shortcode. Works great but I’d prefer if the accordions did not close when the acc_content is clicked. What change to the js file (aqua_common) do I need to make?

Thanks for your support in advance.

Hi, theme is beast :) how can I change /services_item/ slug?

blueowlcreative

Hi, you can edit your functions.php, you will find it there… change, then flush rewrite rules (flush_rewrite_rules(); add it there, then remove it) and you should be good to go! :) Rate the theme if you like it, cheers!

papashivo

Thanks when you say add it then remove it. I tried this my slug links changed but then the pages would not actually load. Do I need to disable and enable permalinks?

blueowlcreative
Provided you have already changed to your desired slug do the following: See the lines in the functions.php :

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

Uncomment them, go to Appearance->Themes, change the theme to WP default one, view the front end, then go back, change again to Aqua and comment these lines again.

papashivo

Nice one works perfectly, cheers 5/5 :)

Awesome theme! I’m trying to add in a link to the testimonials section. So for instead, there is the testimonial, author, and then a hyper link which links directly to the facebook testmonial, so visitors can see it’s real.

Whenever I put in an tag, that section itself disappears. What’s the best way to add in a link? This is what I’ve attempted below. Thanks!

[testimonial width="1/3" author="A.A." author_title="<a href="http://www.facebook.com/">Found on our Facebook page</a>"]Thank you for taking the time to understand my background. The phone conversation was very helpful and set my mind at east. Already told my friends![/testimonial]
blueowlcreative

Hi there, it actually works, just make sure you are using the TEXT editor instead of the VISUAL one and use single quites, as double quotes will actually end the author_title attribute:

[testimonial width="1/3" author="A.A." author_title="<a href="http://www.facebook.com/">Found on our Facebook page</a>"]Thank you for taking the time to understand my background. The phone conversation was very helpful and set my mind at east. Already told my friends![/testimonial]

TEXT editor and remove the link wrapping with single quotes like so: ‘http://www.facebook.com/URL' ! For some reason the editor here subs them with doubles ;)

Rate the theme if you want to share the love mate, thanks for the compliments! :)

Hello,

How do I add multiple pictures to the Portfolio page? I can add only one by setting it as the “Featured Image”.

Best,

N

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Just upload a few at once by holding the CTR key when selecting them. :)

Default-user
NickIoa Purchased

Thanks for the fast response – it only allows me to select one image at a time in that view.

blueowlcreative

When you are to select the image to upload, simply press CTR and select several at once, then click on the button to proceed to the actual upload ;)

Sorry my friend, it just isn’t working :-( Is there a video or image guide on the process somewhere?

blueowlcreative

Of course it’s working, it’s a common Operating system functionality of selecting several files for upload. Ok… again:

1. Click on Featured Image. 2. Click on “SELECT FILES” button. 3. Click on the first image you want to upload, then hold the CTRL key and click on the second etc. 4. Once all the files you want in your portfolio gallery item are selected click on Open (upload).

That’s it, then you can view the files associated with this post by clickin on media library and from the drop down below choose “Uploaded to this post”. The one highlighted will be the first (featured image). :)

Awesome theme! Just one question:

Is there a way to hide the title on specific pages?

blueowlcreative

Hi, yes, you could do so with inline CSS. Type it in your TEXT editor (not Visual).

<style>.page_heading {display: none;}</style>

Hi, Theme is great, however issues are not fixed timely and asked a question on support forum few days ago, still waiting for a response. Tried to check into forum and found that your support site is down. Its down since many hours now!

Appreciate if you can provide a good support and updated product with all bug fixes quickly.

blueowlcreative

Hi there, sure thing, I am here to help. I appologize for the inconvenience but we were real busy with launching our new theme and our hosting seems to get overloaded by it – hence the support downtime. Please email me via my profile page, I will try to reply ASAP. :)

Default-user

Hi, Thank you for your quick response! Its Okay. Just sent you an email as you requested. Waiting for your response. Thanks

I’m really struggling with getting the contact form working. Website is causewaysensors.com

I’ve changed the email server and address etc in the wp_options file in phpmyadmin.

But no luck so far.

Really like your theme.

Thanks

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

No need to change anything really, provided your default WP mail functionality works OK as the theme uses exactly that and nothing more. :) Do you have a functional mail server on your hosting?
