Hi, when I set a button with link from within the project page (small window with project slideshow), the button link opens inside the small project window.

If I set target to “_blank” it opens in a new window but I want it to link directly to another page (e.g. contact). How can I do this?

EngineThemes

Hi,

you should use this “_parent”

thanks

I can’t figure out how to add images to the slider. There are no instructions for this in the documentation are there?

EngineThemes

Hi,

here’s the instruction:

4.2 How to Create Project Image Slider
4.3 How to Create Project as Background slider
4.4 How to Add Rotating title in Background slider

I hope that helps!

Hello support, thank you for all of your help so far.

2 new ones for you.

1. we have about 200 projects we have worked on that we are importing into the system now, but this is WAY to many for just the project page. How can we make sub pages in the project tap creating a drop down? I have added the pages and created them in menu section already. How can I set up in the project bar to select to add it to a bub page? or is here a better way to do it?

2. Since all of our projects are location based, we wold like to add a google map to the project slider page ( as the last slide ) anyway you can think of how we can do this one?

-D

EngineThemes

Hi,

1. you can simply add it in your custom menu..

2. never tried on how to do this.. sorry, just add a fix code in the slider with additional
<li>add dynamic gmap here..</li>

code.. that might work

thanks

I have already added my menus, but i cannot find a way to sort the projects into the correct menu item. Example, on our front page, under projects, I want offices to show up under the office tab… Currently when I set up menus for each type of project, I set up using the “projects page” so I can use the slider and page layout. But under each new category, i see all the listings. How can I charge so it only shows under correct one? ( Please be descriptive, I am new to WordPress )

Default-user

Hello? can I get some help with this one please?

EngineThemes

Hi,

can you show me a screenshot of what you want to achieve? or a link of your site..

thanks

http://205.209.152.191/ go to projects. I am trying to split the amount of projects into 4 separate sections under the projects tab
EngineThemes

Why not add your “Resorts & Residential, Office Commercial etc” as a category and add your “Resort, Residential, Office and more” as a subcategory.. you just need to customize some code in the dropdown filter area. that should work..

thanks

Default-user

ok, but how do it get it to work with the projects slider template so I can sort them into each section? ( I would like to keep the categories as I have them now if I can )

Default-user

really need a little help with this…..

EngineThemes

Hi,

the theme does not support multiple portfolio so you need to customize the code of the theme.. what we mentioned above is just an idea on how you do it..

thanks

Default-user

ok, but how to actually do it? What do I need to change to make it work?

Default-user

I am Sure i am not the only one that has this issue. So maybe another way to put this is how can I duplicate the Projects section and create another one? There has to be an easy solution for this.. Maybe a way to just filter out the the different sections so it only shows the ones that are in that menu item ( similar to what the “filter works” already does? )

Hi Mark, I found out what the problem was with the theme background slider! it was not putting clean html links to the images in the visual side of wordpress, so i just put then in using html.

I do have another question tho. I have a white background and in-between loading pages all the background goes black for a second before the page loads. Is there a png I can change to white or something?

EngineThemes

Hi,

you can change it here: style.css file

thanks

LizardHawk

what part to I change?

I tried changing this vertical-align:baseline; background:#FFF;

that stops the black background but now i cant see the image on front page?

EngineThemes

Hi,

I re-read your question: go here and change “js/supersized/supersized.css” and find line 14 and remove the background:#111; or change it to #FFF;

thanks

LizardHawk

Thanks Mark thats fixed it!

I have another question tho, in the header twitter widget there is text getting crushed at the top and a line missing at the bottom when users use all 140 characters + something somthing etc.

I tried changing the widget line height in style sheet, but that done nothing. It seems the widget needs another row or possibly 2 rows to stop this happening.

Hi! Quick question, I have a rather large logo (250×100) That I would like to use on the theme. Are there any % or px changes that I need to make on the CSS to make this work with the responsive theme? I would like it to be centered in the white space where the logo goes as well. You can see a basic uploaded version at

http://stjoseph.wpengine.com

Thanks!

EngineThemes

Hi,

you can simply change the position in your style.css file.

thanks

Also, here is a screen grab. This is the size of the logo that we are going to use, but it is not aligned. Take a look at this screen grab and the red arrows. Thanks!

Hi, again! :) A couple of questions.

1: I have a button on a page that I would like to link to an existing project (as seen on the Project Page). I’d wish for the same lightbox to pop up. Is there a way to make this happen on a totally different page?

2: Love the toggle bars. Is there a way to apply a rollover color so it is a little more intuitive that there is action upon click?

If we need to discuss custom work to complete these tasks – please advise. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

EngineThemes

Hi,

1. yes just add something like this

<a href="#" class="frame"></a> //add class="frame" 

2. yes just add your custom CSS in the plugin settings..

thanks

Perfect! Thank you good Sir.

Hi There,

We are very happy with the Theme, just one question: We have a logo that needs to be 320 px wide and the main menu is fairly wide as well. We would like to reduce the wides of each main menue item a bid to make it fit. Where can we change the width?

Thanks, T

EngineThemes

Hi,

Quick question, the arrow in the home page slider caption (not the navigation arrows) disappeared. Is this a setting I have to check?

EngineThemes

try removing the (!important) in this code

#slidecaption { background:#3199E9 !important; } 

or do it this way

#slidecaption { background-color:#3199E9 !important;

thanks

Hi,

I just installed the theme. Very nice, but the image w-arrow.png doesn’t appear on the homepage. I think it’s overruled in some kind of way, but I can’t find out why.

Do you have a solution?

Thanx

EngineThemes

Hi,

open your functions.php file and find line 616 and change background to background-color

thanks

Default-user

Thanks for your quick answer.

Default-user

Another question: How can I link the text in the homepageslider (slidecaption) to the about page and how can I remove the link on the text in the slider? Now it links to a backgroundimage preview page, and I want some text to link to a page and some without a link.

thanks

EngineThemes

if you have questions please ask it in our forum..

Thanks for your help. We are looking to move the slider title and navigation arrows down 30 px or so, where would we find these files? thanks!

EngineThemes

Hi,

you can use our custom css field and add your customization code css their..

thanks

Default-user

I understand this, but we cannot find the code to modify. Any clue where it is? Ive seriously looked for hours

EngineThemes

Hi,

you have 2 options to get this done!

1. above mentioned, add it in our custom CSS “Appearance >> Theme Options >> General >> Custom CSS”

2. open “style.css” file and find line 99 and change margin-top: to your own value..

thanks

Default-user

I made these changes, but they don’t seem to be rendering correctly in Chrome and Internet Explorer. Are there any extra things I need to add to make them work properly in there?

EngineThemes

that should work fine, do you have any screenshot for this? or try adding this (!important)

thanks

Default-user

Fixed this. Thanks!

Additionally, I think there is a bug potentially in the code. Every time I try to (A) resized the top menu (to make it 77 px rather than 100 px high) I get a strange occurrence of the submenus appearing very tall and stretched. I also tried to change the weight of the font I am using for the text in the menu and it did the same thing. Here is a snip of code that causes this.

.menu ul li a:link, .menu ul li a:visited { padding:100px 70px 30px 20px; background:#F0F0F0; font:14px 'Lato', sans-serif; color:#797979; }

This is what ends up happening while the height of the top menu changes or the font weight changes, here is a link to my site so you can see: http://stjoseph.wpengine.com/

Thank you for all of your wonderful support, happy to give you 5 stars

EngineThemes

Hi,

you can use a code something like this..

.sub-menu li a { padding: 10px 0; } //just change it to your desire value

I hope that helps!
thanks

Default-user

Sadly this code did nothing :(

EngineThemes

their are many ways to get this work.. try adding !important;

Default-user

That worked perfectly! Thanks!

Default-user

Now there is a gap between the sub menu and the menu.. any suggestions?

EngineThemes
.sf-menu li:hover ul, .sf-menu li:sfHover ul {
   top:149px; // change this to your own value
}

that should work! thanks

Default-user

Thanks for the code. Where should I put this? A little confused. I added it to the CSS and nothing happened.

EngineThemes

Hi,

you can modify it here “js/superfish/superfish.css” or add it here “Appearance >> Theme Options >> General >> Custom CSS”

Hi There,

does the new version 1.2.2. allow background videos? And how would this be done?

Thanks for clarifying, T

Hi,

it does not support video background yet, but you can still use a plugin for your background video..

Please help!

Hi There, We now have a strange problem: The main menu is empty when browser window is reduced or watched on iPad/iPhone?!

How can we fix that? Thanks, T.

EngineThemes

Hi,

that should change to a selectbox when viewing on ipad/iphone, you did not see that also?

thanks

It is changing but that selectbox is empty.

EngineThemes

try de-activating some of your plugins maybe a plugin conflict..

elbnetz
elbnetz Purchased

Deactivated all Plugins with no change. We are in a multi site environment. Could that cause any trouble?

EngineThemes

never tried this theme on multi-site and maybe that cause the error.. try changing the code here: “js/selectbox.js” to this http://css-tricks.com/convert-menu-to-dropdown/

Hi EngineThemes! I got two questions:

1. I already deactivated responsiveness but the header widget still slides underneath the menu bar when I decrease the browser window size. Is there a way to keep it in fixed position next to the menu bar?

2. When adding images to a project only high resolution images will be accepted and show up. Since the project lightbox only shows small images anyways I’m looking for a way to disable the requirement for huge images.

cheers in4fun

P.S.: Can you tell me which files changed in your new theme update since I heavily modified your theme.

EngineThemes

Hi,

1. it wont work like that, that should slide because their is no code on that instead just activate the responsive or fix position will only work on mobile not on desktop

2. their is no requirement for that, you have the right what resolution you can add on that.. High resolution image should be upload if you want a background slider..

PS: I don’t remember them, if you customize the theme you need to use the child theme to avoid any hassle when updating the theme from time to time, what you need right now is to back up your old files..

Hi,

you need to change the height value of #ticker tag (located in style.css in line 265)..

thanks

LizardHawk

I cannot see it! this is in line 265..

.content_block.blue{ background:#1c1f26 }

EngineThemes

just search for #ticker
