Great template! Very simple to follow help/instruction guide. Template is straight forward to implement and support seems very readily available judging by this thread. A simple but modern design…. Nice work egemenerd and thanks again for keeping things realistic and down to earth!

egemenerd

Thank you very much :D

You are very kind :)

Your template is compatible with WPML plugin? Thank you!

egemenerd

No,sorry.

You might be interested in Dysania, it is compatible with wpml; http://themeforest.net/item/dysania-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/7029495

que pena, su tema me gustaba bastante y ahora no puedo comprarlo… :(

Shame, its theme quite liked and now I can not buy it …

Hi,

is template compatible with wp 3.9?

for the update i would suggest, for the home page with youtube… to have an image or a slider that is shown … when video is completed. Because now site becomes empty … when video is finished. Or maybe better solution would be that video is part of the slider, as you can see in many popular sliders.

Have a nice day.

egemenerd

Hi,

Yes, it is compatible with WP 3.9.

Sorry I don’t have any update plan for the slider.

Does this theme come with all the dummy data? the xml information that I can install?

egemenerd

Hi,

Yes there is a demo xml file. You can download it at appearance->theme settings. You can also find the help documentation on that page. Please read it for more information.

Hello! Im interested in this theme Im from Russia and of course we ll try localize it. will we have problems with translation? for example some words cant be replaced on some themes, here is the same?

egemenerd

Hi, there is a .mo file in the theme package. You can use it to translate the frontend of the website (not admin panel); http://help.wp4life.com/2013/11/13/how-to-translate-a-wordpress-theme/

I like working with your theme, the documentation is very good.

I want to set up an English/french bilingual web site, what is the best way to do this? or best compatibles plugins?

egemenerd

Hi thank you :)

I didn’t test any translation plugin with the theme so unfortunatelly I can’t suggest you any plugin. You can try the following plugins;

http://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/top-6-translation-plugins-for-your-wordpress-site/

If you have any problem with any of them (there may be conflicts between the theme and the plugins), you can hire a developer to make it compatible; http://help.wp4life.com/need-a-customization/

For your future purchases, if you want a multilingual website, you should search for wpml compatible themes. For example following theme is fully compatible with wpml plugin. You can see this information on the item description page; http://themeforest.net/item/dysania-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/7029495

Hi, I just bought this theme. and now I just tested on mobile (on iPhone),and the picture slider on projects doesn’t show up.. then how can I show my projects photo? or Can I just turn off the responsive feature?

thanks

egemenerd

Hi, yes because there isn’t enough place for 50% layout on small screens…Sorry but there isn’t any easy way to turn off responsive feature… You can add mobile only images to your pages; http://help.wp4life.com/2014/01/26/how-to-add-an-image-which-is-displayed-only-on-mobile-device/

I am trying to download the instruction sheet for template and keep getting that there “is a problem downloading” .... now what.

egemenerd

Instruction sheet…?

Just download the theme zip package from Themeforest (if you can’t download it, contact Envato support; http://support.envato.com/ ) and upload it to your wordpress website from wordpress admin panel ( Appearance->Themes->Add new->Upload theme)

If you are an unexperienced Wordpress user, you can buy a theme installation/setup service; http://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-installation

Default-user

“there is a problem sending the command to the program” is what it says and I am too new at all this to figure out what that means. Is there an instruction book?

egemenerd

Sorry but I really have no idea about what are you trying to do…

You don’t need any program to use Wordpress. First you should buy a hosting and domain service. Then you should make a Wordpress install to your server. You can contact your hosting provider about that.

After that you should access into your Wordpress admin panel and upload the theme zip package which you downloaded from Themeforest to your Wordpress website ( Appearance->Themes->Add new->Upload theme).

There is a help documentation in the theme zip package (unzip it find and click index.html file, it is in “documentation” folder) but it is about using the theme not Wordpress setup…

You can look at Wordpress official website; http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

But it is not easy for a newbie so I recommend you buy a Wordpress installation service… They can install/setup Wordpress and the theme for you…; http://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-installation

egemenerd

There is a custom icon link option in the theme. So you can add your own icons easily.

small help, I want to put the social icones on top menu rigth side. how can I do that ? or add on TO GO BACK bar. as a footer?

egemenerd

Sorry but there isn’t any option like that. There isn’t any suitable place on the menu and there isn’t any footer in Arc…

lol, I see the footer file , why we cant add footer to the site?

egemenerd

footer.php is a standard Wordpress file. It doesn’t mean that there is a footer in the design…

Thank you for this amazing theme! One question though – is there a Captcha option for the contact page? Thanks. :)

egemenerd

Hi, sorry but no. There is a spam link protection in the code. If you still getting spam emails, you can search for an advanced contact form plugin or you can use an online form builder to create forms; http://help.wp4life.com/2013/11/14/how-to-add-forms-to-your-website-with-jotform/

rednebulainc

Oh, gotcha. If there is already spam protection built in then I am ok. Thank you for your quick response!

egemenerd

You’re welcome :)

My client purchased your theme and we trying to install that but theme is not working. see here : http://119.18.59.133/~demosar/buildcrest/ I can give you ftp and wp admin to resolve this.

egemenerd

You should send me your purchase code, wordpress admin link, username and password via contact form on my profile page…

egemenerd

...and are you sure that your client bought my theme? There are themes which names are arch, arche etc. (your site title is arch not arc)

Hey, great theme!

Question. How do I go about fixing the under construction “Info” box text to

1. not change to a BLACK hyperlink (when I type in a phone number), which blends in with the background 2. center the text or make the lines break like your demo page does (it won’t convert the html code I’m using in the info box for center) 3. I would like it to hyperlink the email address as well if possible!

Thank you!

egemenerd

You should use css-html to do these things. Here is an example;

Hi,

Can I add Custom HTML in place of Latest Posts/Latest Comments icon? I want add in this place language flags.

Best regards,
Eve KJ

egemenerd

It is sidebar. Latest posts/latest comments, flickr,latest video etc. these are widgets. You can add/remove widgets from Wordpress widgets menu..

Thank you for your answer.

Will this work with woocommerce?

egemenerd

No, sorry.

Hi Egemenerd, love the ARC theme, really nice work. The only issue I’m having is my client needs to have project categories in the navigation that link to the project gallery (but the gallery needs to be sorted to each specific category depending on which navigation item is clicked).

For example:

Projects -Residential -Commercial -Mixed Use

If I click on “Residential” I need it to take me to the Projects gallery page, but have it presorted to residential projects. Otherwise someone is going to click on “Residential” and then get the gallery sorted to “ALL”—which is misleading.

Is this possible with some kind of html link? I just don’t even know what to search for on Google to find an answer!

Thanks so much!

Ok that’s a good alternative, thanks! Just one more quick thing—the header image seems to be set for 100px height, which is too big and messes up the navigation, making it off-center vertically:

http://ar-development.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Screen-Shot-2014-09-22-at-10.34.25-AM.png

On your demo, the header image is only about 55px tall, so what’s making it not scale to the right size on my site?

egemenerd

Try to copy paste the following code to the appearance->Theme settings->General->Custom script field;

<style>
#logo img,#logo2 img {
    height:80% !important;
}
</style>

You can change 80 with a smaller or a bigger number (max. 100).

Oh, I see what was happening—there was some random text in the “Custom Header Script” box of Theme Settings and it wasn’t visible, but was screwing up the header. Once I got rid of it, the problem went away!

aofolts Purchased

How do I prevent the home page slider images from squishing when the page is shrunk? The images are not scaling down at a fixed ratio—this makes the pictures super skinny and distorted.

egemenerd

I edited single.php file which is in your theme folder. Download it and change the original one with this one;

https://www.dropbox.com/s/4thxpvlybv06bup/single.php?dl=0

This change may fix your problem.

Changing slider with another one is not an easy thing. You should have a good html,css,php etc. knowledge. Only a web developer can do this..

Yep, that did the trick—slider is working properly now. Thanks so much for doing that, really appreciate it!

You’re welcome :)

I can’t figure out how to get sliders working for pages/posts. The only one that works is the slider on the home page and the “Slider” only lets you create a slider for the home page.

How is this done? Thanks!

egemenerd

Slider is only available on homepage and on project detail pages. You can’t use it on other pages/posts. You can only add featured images to them.

You can select “Slideshow” from Theme Settings->Projects and you can attach images to your projects.

For more information about projects, please look at the help documentation (projects section).

Egemenerd,

I went to test my site today on different devices and it has sizing issues with the iPhone 5 and does not work at all for any tablet. I also tried your demo theme with the same results.

Most importantly, on a tablet, the page does not scroll at all on my site or your demo theme even after updating to the most current version of the theme. Is there a solution for this?

Thanks,

—Andrew

The sizing issue is less important—I’ve used different iPads and a Kindle Fire and you cannot use your finger to scroll down any of the pages (on either your demo or my site). It’s as if they’re just static jpeg files.

Navigation works just fine, but the pages are aren’t scrollable.

egemenerd

As I said I checked my demo website on different devices tooand scrolling is working without any problem on all of them;

This is what I see;

https://www.dropbox.com/s/oq1xajl0dfg64tp/20140930_195507.mp4?dl=0

This theme is not a new theme (sold +470 times) and nobody reported an issue like that before… So sorry but I don’t know why it is not working for you.

Ok, extremely bizarre. I just need to get the site to the point where it can be launched (because I have a client that needs it to be up ASAP), so is this a problem you or another developer can fix for a price by taking a look at the site?

Here is the link to the web to the website:

You can try to add the following code to the appearance->Theme settings->General->Custom header script field. It may fix your issue…;

<style>
@media only screen and (max-width:900px) {
body {
overflow: auto !important;
}
}
</style>

Hey thanks for trying to help out—this code made it so the header logo can be moved back and forth with a finger swipe (which may be a good sign), but the website’s body is still static and cannot be scrolled.

p.s. (apologies for making a new thread, I just copied the video link into the comment box by mistake)

egemenerd

Are you using latest ios version on your ipad? I’m using ios 8. If you are using an older version of ios, this may cause this problem. Also check it on default browser of ipad (Safari).

It is like searching something in the dark and I don’t have any other idea. If I could see the problem I would help you but there are tons of possibilities and I can’t see the problem.

So I think you should hire a web developer who can check your website on your mobile devices.
