Is it possible to add a specific excerpt to a post? Other themes have an ‘excerpt’ field on each individual post page. I don’t see how to do that on Astrum. Nothing in documentation either. My client has asked for very specific excerpts for each post that need to be done by hand. These exceprts would need to also accept simple HTML tags like

and
... you can do this in other themes.

purethemes

Of course you can add excerpt in Astrum, it’s not theme function, it’s WordPress function. Be sure you have checked “Excerpts” box in Screen Options in post editor http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/

Thanks for pointing that out. Worked great.

Hello. I’m very happy with my purchase of Astrum.

Though i have a issue, when i try adding a sidebar to the woocommerce shop page, or the category page. It does not work?

Also the shop page, does not get affected when i change the header to alternative header. Which is also annoying me.

It’s like it doesn’t react when im adding a sidebar. But it works fine on normal pages and such.

I hope you can help me fix this issue. Thank you.

purethemes

Hi

The woocommerce shop uses ‘Shop’ sidebar, and for category page it’s not possible to select custom sidebar, it always uses ‘Default Sidebar’

as for the header issue, there’s currently update for Astrum waiting to be approved by TF, and it fixes that issue (and some others)

Thanks!

I am using the Astrum theme at http://sterling-testing.com/

At some point my css (mainly in the footer) stopped working, telling me there were page validation issues. One of the errors is supposedly that there are two id=”s” in id=”search-form” ... maybe that is causing my problem? How can I enable a search engine in main upper navigation without having this error? Thanks for wonderful theme.

scgroove

I see MY mistake in the css that cleared up my footer coloring issues. In an unrelated issue, the page still receives some validation errors like: “Line 138, Column 143: Element link is missing required attribute property”, which is referring to the Google font (raleway) installation (line 145) in the slider. The w3c spec says the <link> element needs a ‘itemprop’ property when it is used within the . In regards to the site properly displaying on all media, is this something I should worry about?

purethemes

Hi no, there’s nothing to be worry about, with that kind of complex site, with the advanced slider and other features it’s almost impossible to keep 100% validated site. And even some errors or warning won’t have effect on the site appearance.

For the double inputs with id=”s”, unfortunately it’s the only way to have working search form in WordPress, so if you want to have two on one page it’s how it has to be.

For the ‘itemprop’ property error, it’s returned by Revolution Slider which is 3rd party plugin and I’m not able to change it.

Anyway, 99% of problems with CSS not working is the problem with CSS, not page validation.

Thanks!

Hi, I want to use the image in your slider demo. Can i use it in my site? Thanks!

purethemes

Hi, images are copyrighted and you have to buy them first. They were bought from PhotoDune (most from Yuri Arcus, but as he removed his photos from PD, you can find them at http://peopleimages.com/ ), and some from GraphicRiver

May i have the link of the guy in the slider where it has thumbs up and no hair

I’m posting my second comment as a new one incase it got lost being a reply to our previous discussion.

Hello again and thanks for the quick reply!

I wanted to ask something else. In the shortcodes section of the sample site, “regular tables” are listed as an option but I can’t seem to find them. Can you point me to the right direction please?

purethemes

Hi, there’s no shortcode for this, it’s just simple HTML table.

Default-user

Oh I see. Then maybe it shouldn’t have been with the rest of the shortcode elements. That’s misleading. Nor should it have been listed as a theme-feature, since essentially anything is possible with the use of HTML.

purethemes

What would be the point of shortcode for plain HTML table? it would be redoing <table> with [table]. Unnecessary slowing website.

Hello, I have just installed astrumto my site. In installation guide there was not anything about WooCommerce, actually I do not need it, but when I started to import XML file with demo congis, I have got: Import WordPress Failed to import pa_multiselect-attributes Camera Lenses, SRL Cameras Failed to import shop_order_status cancelled Failed to import shop_order_status completed Failed to import product_type external Failed to import shop_order_status failed Failed to import product_type grouped Failed to import shop_order_status on-hold Failed to import shop_order_status pending Failed to import shop_order_status processing Failed to import shop_order_status refunded Failed to import product_type simple Failed to import product_type variable Failed to import product_cat Biking Failed to import product_cat Clothing Failed to import product_cat Photography Failed to import product_cat Sport Failed to import product_cat Traveling

Then when I went through settings in manual, I still did not get the same view as in demo site.

Actually content of home page is just [template id=”880”], but in page builder there are no such templates (no templates at all).

I use just clean installation of latest WP (3.7.1) with only recommended for astrum plugins.

In 3-4 days I have a demo of my product at the conference, and I need my site looking in the same way as on demo (at least structurely). I do not have time to study all power (it is!) of theme, I just want to change a content of pages, and run a site.

Please help me.

I installed WooCommerce, and re-run import, now all went in a good way, and page builder contains templates referring in other pages.

In documentation it states “WooCommerce Optional plugin”, thus WooCommerce is required plugin for successful import of demo file.

Revolution Slider Error: Slider with alias not found. Maybe you mean: ‘home’

Also what I just noticed: 1) when I scroll page down, menu is not stayed visible, as it is for http://astrum.purethemes.wpengine.com/. But may be this is special setting of theme, which I have not noticed.

2) another thing is I can not see search icon in top menu, as it is at the official preview http://astrum.purethemes.wpengine.com/.

3) third different is at the bottom I do not have About, Twitter, Get in touch, Newsletter (at least About and Get in touch required)

Please advice.

I went to home page, and noticed that in Revolution Slider section:

If you want to use Revolution Slider on this page, select page template “Revolution Page” and choose slider you want to display.

I checked and found this home page uses “Home Page Template”, I switched it to “Page with revolution slider”, and it made slider to work, but as this is a page, layouts are one under another.

Also I can not find this theme settings as it shown at demo astrum.purethemes.wpengine.com.

Please assist.

Making a resume: after spending time I found almost all the settings.

But: if I am not experienced WP user I won’t be able to import demo file due to WooCommerce. Also documentation doesn’t contain all the steps to make theme looking as at demo.

Remaining questions: 1) I am not able to remove “Home” breadcrumb at main page 2) how to add footer About, Get in touch blocks? 3) how to change color of footer?

Default-user
zmicer Purchased

Found option for widgets.

Please could you recommend, which plugin to use for newsletters subscription?

And how to remove this “Home” breadcrumb?

Default-user
zmicer Purchased

Found answer for Home at second page, provided by theme author, this fixes last problem I had:

Hi, there’s no way to disable it unless you’re using page with “Home Page Template”. You can of course hide it using CSS, if you want to do this for all pages you need to add to Custom CSS box in Theme Options:

titlebar {display: none;}

if you want to do it for specific page, you need to add

.page-id-122 #titlebar {display: none;}

where 122 is ID of example page

Then now I would like to say “Thank you” for such brilliant theme, it is very robust, I use WP for 5-6 years, but usually use just simple static themes, and now for me this theme is just opening of new dimension of WP, it is very impressive.

Could you recommend plugin/system for newsletters?

purethemes

Hi there! I’m really sorry I couldn’t help you earlier and save you the troubles with configuring themes, but I had free weekend :) But I’m glad you’ve solved your problems.

For the newsletter I recommend signing up to MailChimp http://mailchimp.com/ – it’s free upto 2k subscribers and 12,000 emails per month. If you’ll install this widget http://wordpress.org/plugins/mailchimp-widget/ you’ll be able to use Astrum MailChimp widget which is the one you see on Demo Page.

And to clarify, the WooCommerce is not required. My guess is the first time you didn’t have PageBuilder activated so the templates were not imported, or some other thing went wrong, but I’m sure by default tempaltes will be imported without WooCommerce, as they are separated records.

Also for Home page with slider you should have selected Home Page template, and slider should be selected in Theme Options.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask, or contact me via email/support ticket

Kind regards,

Trying to import your sample content and it freezes half way through. I then have to refresh the page to get it to continue. Once complete there is no imported content in many of the pages, particularly the contact page which just displays: [template id=”1346”].

Any ideas why?

Thanks Steve

Hi

Try to add the following to the wp-config.php file: define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘64M’);

And the following to a php.ini file: upload_max_filesize = 64M post_max_size = 64M max_execution_time = 300

And be sure you’ve installed all required plugins before import.

Thanks. One further question I have relates to the revolution slider. I’m going with the boxed layout. Yet I cannot get a fixed slider image to respond to a mobile layout. Is there a setting I’m missing?

purethemes

Hi, did you set it as it’s in the documentation?

Default-user
ssoneil Purchased

Yes, exactly. A change was required in another area of Wordpress to make the layout fixed, even though that had already been set in the documented area. Thanks for your reply though.

Hi, I have followed the directions in making a slider as is in this link to get full page layout

http://www.docs.purethemes.net/astrum/#getting_started_setting_slider_revo

But the layout is still boxed, please help.

purethemes

Hi, could you show me URL of your website?

purethemes

You’ve set theme to Boxed, so the slider will always be boxed. You’d need to switch theme to Wide Layout (in Appearance -> Customize)

Default-user

I think I have it set to wide layout, but it still has this shadow under the slideshow? And what dimensions and how is the best way to prepare my images?

purethemes

The shadow is set in Slider settings, on the right side you have box with Appearance, you can disable shadow there. Background images should be at least 1280px wide, the height depends on the slider height you’ve set.

Default-user

Awesome thank you sooo much for the help I greatly appreciate it, One more thing, is there any way to customize the look of the navigation menu you can recommend?

purethemes

Any changes in the navigation menu will require modification of CSS

Default-user

Thank you, also may I ask why does the height of the slideshow change by itself? I have it set to 1180×450 and the custom image I created is 1280×450 but it keeps cutting off the bottom of my image, why is that?

purethemes

I guess the custom image should be 1180×450, otherwise it will be resized.

Default-user

Would you mind going to my url provided. It seems as if on my computer screen the slideshow stretches out the image but as I resize the window smaller the image goes back to it’s desired size. Is there anyway to prevent it from automatically scaling up in size?

purethemes

You can either switch slider to Fixed size, not Auto Responsive, or (what would be better) create it from scratch, as you’re not utilizing it’s full potential. In Revolution Slider, you can create layers with images, so for example the first slide http://www.imlikeastar.com/goldson/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/slider01.jpg should be made from 4 different images, the background image, which could be stretched and you woudn’t see much loss in quality, and two images with doctors, one image with button, and one with arrow. The text would be a Text Layer. In that case the slider would adjust all the layers to show them in best quality and in correct positions no matter what the size of window is.

Hello once again!

Again thanks for the awesome theme and great support.

I would like to know if there is a way of changing the font on the menu items. Keep in mind that the site is in Greek so the font has to support Greek characters.

Thank you in advance for your time!

purethemes

That of course is possible but would require some customization of theme, and you’d have to find webfont that is capable of displaying Greek characters. Many services providing webfonts have their own tools or plugins for applying those fonts.
