Hi Pirenko!

I am getting Japanese characters in place of the icons on my website. See screenshot.

Thoughts?

Cheers, Lisa

Hello, I am getting following message every time I edit a page or create a new page. Any ideas? “Your page layout was created with previous Visual Composer version. Before converting your layout to the new version, make sure to read this page.”

Pirenko

Hi,
Please update the theme and the Aria Framework plugin to the latest version. Thanks :)

Hello, I removed everything and downloaded and installed everything again but still getting the same error. I also don’t have any messages for updating anything as everything is upto date. The issue happens only in case when I use page builder feature and change layout.

Pirenko

Hi,
In that case please send me a private message with the WP login details so that I can check this. Send me also a link to the page where this is showing.
Thanks!

There seems to be a new visual composer update. I had to purchase the plugin separately. The plug in will not activate separately out of the theme.

I’m actually now uncertain if I needed to make the purchase at all.

So now at every instance of using composer – you are asked to update to the new version. Every time you go to a page. When you convert it creates all sorts of headaches.

This then causes duplication of components, within the backend editor.

You get the error message every time when trying to edit the page.

Was working till the update issue occurred today.

Here is the error on plugin install: helpers_factory.php on line 206

Pirenko

Hi, please make sure that you have the latest theme and also Aria Framework plugin versions. You can’t have this plugin active and Visual Composer original plugin, because it is already a part of the framework. If you still have any trouble please send me the WP Login details if possible. Cheers :)

Seems to be stable now. I did a bunch of updating and house cleaning. Got the update from you as well. Thank you Pirenko. Love your work!

Pirenko

Ok, great and thanks ;)

Call to action buttons are broken with the new update. They look nothing like they do in the demo anymore. What do you do to fix it?

Pirenko

Hi, please make sure that you update the bundled plugins properly. I suggest that you delete the Aria Framework plugin and install it again plus the Visual Composer that is now independent. Cheers!

Hi - I have installed Aria and my custom post_types are not being retrieved by archive.php. Instead, I am getting all posts in descending. Category archives are working.

http://morningside-alliance.org/members

1) one issue is that my 1 custom post type is sug “members.” I have since removed your members tax. from functions.php and renamed slug in Aria Options. 2) I am using a child theme.

Pirenko

Hi,
Custom post types are not shown using archive.php. If you want to create a page to show members create a page and add a Team Members page element to it.
Cheers!

Pirenko’s support is awesome. They went to great length to solve the problem I ran into after enabling HTTPS. He gladly separated the visual composer plugin from bundled Aria Framework and did a new release. I highly recommend them.

Pirenko

Thank you for your feedback!

I am trying to add “Aria Recent Posts” to pages using Visual Composer. The only way to add this widget looks like from a sidebar. However, they don’t show up there. Is there a way to make a widget be available using Visual Composer?

I also tried adding some 3rd party widgets like “Recent Posts Extended” but Visual Composer will not recognize them.

Pirenko

Hi,
It seems to be working fine without the need of using any sidebar. Please turn OFF all the plugins you may have and try again.
If you still have trouble please send me a private message with a link and the WP login details.
Cheers!

Hello Pirenko! I’m trying to integrate a Mailchimp Subscribe pop up and I have this code which I want it to be shown everytime somebody enters my website. Where should I insert that? Thanks!

<script type="text/javascript" src="//s3.amazonaws.com/downloads.mailchimp.com/js/signup-forms/popup/embed.js" data-dojo-config="usePlainJson: true, isDebug: false"></script><script type="text/javascript">require(["mojo/signup-forms/Loader"], function(L) { L.start({baseUrl"}) })</script>
Pirenko

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! You need to check that pop up documentation to see how to integrate it properly with WordPress.
Cheers :)

Pirenko, Take a look at this link: https://www.cloudpuffin.com/blog/category/introduction

What I would like to do is edit the layout of this page (using VC would be great but not necessary). Also, I would like to suppress the featured image on this page. How can I do that?

Pirenko

Hi,
That is an archive page so you can edit the archive.php file manually. This is an unusual request, because archives pages are supposed to show only posts.
As for the images: if you don’t need them simply don’t set any featured image for those posts. You can also select different layouts for the blog archives pages under Aria Options>Blog tab.
Cheers!

Pirenko, I have noticed that your theme does not allow functions.php function overrides in child theme. For example, I wanted to override prk_output_title() function.

Had you defined your function as follows, it would have allowed me to easily override functions. I think if every single function defined in your functions.php is defined as follows, it will be much easier to override them in a clean way using child themes.

Thoughts? Would you consider this modification in a future release? Also, if you can allow global page title turn off that will be great, as I do not wish to hide it using just CSS or display:none;

if ( ! function_exists( ‘prk_output_title’ ) ) { function prk_output_title() { // Do something. } }

Pirenko

Hi,
Yes, that is what I meant. Also, what is the problem of hiding the title with CSS? And the theme allows you to turn OFF titles per page so you don’t even need to make any changes to the theme.
Anyway, in the end, you can always tweak the parent theme, because there are certain types of changes that can’t be done with child themes.
Cheers!

Pirenko, Thank you very much for providing excellent support. In general I am OK with doing display:none in CSS with many not so important elements and already doing that in few places but in this case I decided to reach out to you for following reasons: 1. The content element in question here is H1 header element which is one of the most important element for SEO after page title inside a document. 2. This is one of the common techniques used by many websites to improve their SEO called as “keyword stuffing”. Google knows about it and has a published a video (link below) on not using this practice and they might penalize the search ranking because of this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y-m_jiayLQ#t=177

3. According to the wordpress article I linked earlier, the extensible way to write function in base theme is enclose them in ” if ( ! function_exists( ‘prk_output_title’ ) ) { .. your function … } In general, this looks pretty harmless to everyone, doesn’t it? 4. You are right that on many static pages page title can be suppressed but on on those pages rendered by single.php or index.php for single blog posts or category listing, this option is not there. 5. If such an option is provided, the base theme can remain unmodified and easier to upgrade in future and child theme can be used for all customization which is why child themes were developed for.

This is obviously a low priority and I can certainly wait a few weeks. If you could at least wrap the above title function (more functions would be even better) whenever you get a chance in future release that will be awesome. You could also devise an alternate to way to suppress page titles on blog post listing and single page if you prefer. I indent to use this theme across multiple projects in future and I appreciate your help.

Pirenko

Hummm… I haven’t still understand why don’t you copy the whole functions.php into the child theme. Anyway, send me a private message and we’ll take this conversation from there, because this may bring some confusion to other theme users.
Cheers!

I updated the Aria theme today and for some reason my Visual Composer isn’t working. I am not able to create pages in Visual but can in text. I current have Visual Composer 3.8 that was tweaked to fit Aria Theme. I love VC! How can I get it to work? Is the plugin out of date?

Pirenko

Hi,
The latest version of the theme includes the latest version of that plugin which is compatible with WordPress 4.1. You should have seen some custom update messages when you updated the theme. Because you are coming from a really old version (I can tell this, because Visual Composer is “inside” Aria Framework), please erase all the plugins related with the theme before installing the new ones.
If you need help updating bundled plugins please check this small tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0JrPSouk6U&index=7&list=PLWiviR4wWrsFYzkvrjlXyFP1M3Woaw9S2
Cheers!
