I keep getting various errors when I try to install the theme. The errors are mutating every instance I try to install the theme. An example of the errors am getting are; Am running Wordpress 3.8.1

“Could not copy file. PSD/home.psd” “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

What to do?

Hi there,

Are you sure you are installing the correct file? The theme is Aqua.zip and is found within your package. :)

Hey,

Is there a way to make the theme responsive for smart phones? I checked on an ipad and it looked great however on a Samsung Galaxy s4 and iPhone the banner/content seems to only show half of it.

Thanks for the help! http://demo.socaldigitalmarketing.com/

Hi there, the theme is responsive, hardocding a width for the main navigation will require some custom CSS in the responsive section of your stylesheet.css to make things look good in that mode as well, I believe I warned you about that earlier… :) I would hide the main nav in smaller screens and display the mobile menu (dropdown). As for your slider – same thing, you need to set it’s responsive sizes in its options! Check the Demo sliders for reference! :)

Default-user

Ok, sounds good about hiding the main nav in smaller screens and displaying the mobile menu. Can you point me in the right direction for where I would edit this?

I was able to set the slider in responsive sizes just not the content/navigation bars. For future reference if anyone asks about slider options this video was helpful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCNfWWX24Ys

Thank you :)

Hi again,

Yes, just check the bottom of your stylesheet.css. You will see the responsive sections there, basically you tell the browser to take under consideration the size of the screen and to apply some rules in the context of the browser width, you will see there that in small resolutions for example the main nav. is hidden and the mobile menu gets shown, you need to experiment with yours to achieve the best results! :)

Hey,

When I go to the editor – stylesheet.css this is the only information provided: Theme Name: Aqua Description: A business, portfolio and blog theme.

@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”);

blueowlcreative

This is the one you need: stylesheets/stylesheet.css

Open it via your FTP client.

I actually just noticed that fixing the slider made the mobile layout correct. All is well again ty!

Hello. Is there a way to easily get full width sections in this theme?

I tried doing it with just CSS. It works, but the frame of the site will scroll left and right, which it shouldn’t.

Here’s an example of what I did. http://www.multiversemediagroup.com/who-we-are/

Is there something better build in that I’m just missing?

blueowlcreative
Hi, the theme implements a fixed width wrapper as you have discovered, you are on the right track though, your solution will always generate scrollbars as you are setting absolute widths by using the explicit px values… here check this solution instead: http://css-tricks.com/examples/FullBrowserWidthBars/

I am sure you may find more out there, good luck! :)

Default-user

awesome… the last bit of code in that article to hide the scrolling did the trick. Thanks for the help. :)

blueowlcreative

Glad to hear that! Yes, looks great now, you could only straighten out your 3 columns now, you know you can use “1/3” for width, right? Also make sure you use “first” for the position of the first and “last” for the last one, also remove “first” from the second one as it removes the left margin. ;)

Default-user

Didn’t even notice that. Thanks for the catch. You’re awesome.

Hey bud… one other thing. A couple months ago I asked about creating a 2nd portfolio and you gave me this link http://support.blueowlcreative.com/discussion/comment/3038

I didn’t do it at the time because we weren’t ready to, but now I am and the page won’t load. Do you have those instructions anywhere else?

Thanks.

Great Work! Thank you very much!

Please, I have only one thing to ask you if is possible. I create a Services pages under another page that I called “services”. When I click on a services pages the addres is site/services_item/page.

I would like to change the address from /services_items/ to /services/. I opened the functions.php in editor and I changed the name. Now the address is correct but the result page is 404 not found.

I try to create a new Services pages after the change but it’s the same.

Can you tell me how can I do it? :)

blueowlcreative

Hi there,

You need to flush the rewrite rules if you are changing the slug for a custom post type. You can see how here: http://blueowlcreative.com/support_wp/forums/topic/gallery-homepage-broken/

Good luck! :)

How can i add 3 “Featured Texts with Cool Icons” side by side?

blueowlcreative

Like in the demo?

Create 3 columns (1/3 width) then add the shortcodes within each… :)

Default-user

Thanks ;) And how can i add html code in the info box? Like this: “[message type=”success”]Message Text...[/message]”

blueowlcreative

And you want the Message Text to be wrapped in some HTML or what? :)

Default-user

I will add some html code in the message (“[message type=”success”]Message Text…[/message]”). Is this possible?

blueowlcreative

Sure, I don’t see why not, what happens when you do?

Default-user

“[message type=”success”]Message Text...[/message]” the bold tag doesnt work in this box…

Thanks ;)

Default-user

......

Default-user

delete

blueowlcreative

Hi again,

This works for me just fine:


[message type="success"]Success <strong>Message</strong> Text...[/message]

Hi,

I bought your theme and I totally love it, but I experience a problem with password protect for pages. When I protect a page with a password and enter the right password (checked it a few times) and click on submit, the screen refreshes and brings up the prompt for the password again.

How can I fix this? I asked for support on the WordPress forum, but they said it has something to do with the custom theme (Aqua in this case). I hope you can help me out with this.

Thanks in advance!

blueowlcreative

Hi,

What WP version are you using? :)

Default-user

Hi,

I’m currently using 3.8.

blueowlcreative

Hi again, I really don’t see how that would be related to the theme, but please do send me your credentials and url so I can take a look! Use my profile page form. :)

Default-user

Hi, I’ve sent it! Thanks.

Default-user

Hi, have you been able to find out why the password protect didn’t work?

blueowlcreative

Did you not see my reply? I logged in and the page seemed to be password protected, just as expected! Changing its status also worked for me, what did i miss?

Default-user

No, I didn’t see your reply. Yes, it is password protected, but the problem is that it doesn’t work. When I protect the page with a password and go to the page to submit the password, it doesn’t work. When I submit the password, I am not forwarded to the unlocked page, but instead I get the same screen again. So I can password protect a page, but when I enter the password I don’t get access to the page.

blueowlcreative

This surely doesn’t sound like a theme issue, rather something to do with routing or your WP installation settings or htaccess settings… Try with your Default WP theme, I am positive you will get the same result. :)

Is this theme compatible with the WordPress 3.9 update? Any advice to ensure this theme is successful with the new update?

blueowlcreative

Hi, Yes it is, a few shortcodes are a bit off, but an update is scheduled next week to fix those. I’d wait for the update to upgrade. thanks! :)

Your demo seems to be down. I am trying to figure out why, after installing the theme and importing the XML and data, it still looks very different from your demo site (well, at least the screenshots for now since the demo is down).

drummerjoe

Follow up – the issue with the theme not appearing correctly is likely because your site/server is down, and therefore the Wordpress importer was unsuccessful at importing any content from your server. Please fix asap – was supposed to spend today working on this site.

drummerjoe

Another follow up – it appears that your site is not down – rather for some reason, I am unable to access your site from my internet connection. Tried from my customer’s office and I was able to access your demo site.

However, I still have the issue that even after installing the theme, activating it, and importing the XML, the site does not look like your demo. I tried both of your demo XML files, and even though all of the images and other content imports into the folders on my server, nothing gets changed on the actual site.

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Are you still having issues with this? Please contact me via my profile page with your URL so I can take a look at what’s going on, also explain what you need to achieve and I will help you out! :)

The theme seems not to work with 3.9. All was fine until I upgraded now cannot add any content to any new posts or pages! MASSIVE fail.

blueowlcreative

The update for WP3.9 is in ThemeForest’s queue, you should receive an email pretty soon (once they approve it) and you can update your theme. You actually still should be able to add/modify everything just a few shortcodes don’t show correctly in your editor. Make sure you turn on the Toolbar Toggle if you haven’t ;)

is your testimonials shortcode a slider only? Can individual testimonials be place anywhere on a page? Also, as a slider can it be used as a widget?

Thanks in advance.

blueowlcreative

Hi,

Yes, it can be used as a widget, check the Blog page’s sidebar. You can have a single testimonial by adding simply 1 testimonial in the shortcode, yes. Thanks for your interest. :)

Hello,

I’m trying to find the original images used in the slider. I want to use them in a big standing roll-up banner. However, it seems like to be impossible to find them on photodune.

I’m searching for the lady and the used background (2 separate images).

Could you please provide me with the url’s, name of image or author?

I would immensely appreciate it :)

blueowlcreative

Hi,

They are already off PhotoDune, but you are totally safe to freely use them in the theme as I have purchased extended rights for them and they ship freely with the purchase of the theme, so you can use them in your final product! Cheers! :)

Default-user

ah yes i know, but i would also like to use them in a printed banner (200 cm x 80 cm). sadly i can’t find them on photo dune

blueowlcreative

Oh, I guess most of them are down by now, it’s been awhile. :)

What version of Revolution Slider is currently included with this theme?

blueowlcreative

Hi,

It’s Version 4.3.8 SkyWood, the latest as of now I believe; it can be upgraded at any time should you need it in the future. :)

Is there an easy way to show tags in blog view and in post view, along with author and other post info.

Thank you!

Lollo

blueowlcreative

Hi Lollo,

You need to edit your index.php and add the appropriate code there, it would be easy if you know your way around WP. :)

Default-user

Works fine, thanks!
