Cool Work, GLWS!

FranklinM2

Thanks :)

Does your layout builder include a rich text editor? For example… Imagine 3 text columns each having a rich text editor.

Thank you

FranklinM2

Hi, unfortunately the builder doesn’t have a rich text editor but you can have the columns. The main reason for that is that the default Wordpress editor doesn’t play nice when used in a dynamically loaded page. I’ll definitely be hunting for an alternative solution to that problem and provide an update.

Hi… nice package deal… can YouTube video be inserted into portfolio and blogs? Does Blog support Audio posts and Quotes?... thanks.

Can fonts in menu easily be changed? thanks.

FranklinM2

Yes, thats a simple css modification. I can direct you on what to change if you need to.

hi can I change the with of the sidebar? I must integrate standard-ads of 300×250 px?

FranklinM2

Hi,

We don’t have an option for that in the theme options panel but you can adjust the width by css since it’s percentage based and you can achieve that width. I can give you the directions on what to change if you need to.

Looks great! very clean :)

FranklinM2

Thank you, I appreciate it :)

Hi there, nice theme. Can the logo in the header be any size? Also, on the blog, can the author icon/name/date be removed? On the menu bar can the colour be altered. In the team page, is there only one option for the the layout?

Thanks, Silvio

FranklinM2

Hi Silvio,

The logo can be any size, you can also remove the author name, date with one line of code. The menu color can also be altered via css quite easily.

Thanks :)

Thanks, and the team page layout?

FranklinM2

Sorry I forgot to mention that :) The team page layout is powered by the team member shortcode as you can see here http://avalon.wpengine.com/shortcodes/team-members/ You can have different columns if you wish eg, 2 columns, 3 columns etc

Hi! I need your help. I tried logging into your support site, but have yet to be emailed a password.

I’m very much a novice when it comes to css…

How can I change the font colors? How can I change the menu background color? How do I insert the slider into the grey area at the top?

FranklinM2

Hi, sorry about the problem with signing up. I’ll investigate and fix it for you immediately.

You are going to need a little bit of css to change the menu background color and font colors. For example to change the menu background I would use, #navigation-wrap{ background: blue; }

We’ve covered creating the slider in the documentation. If it isn’t please let me know. After you create your slider, go to the layout manager and add the slider to the featured area and save the layout.

If something isn’t clear fell free to email me at frank[@]radiumthemes.com

Hello, with this theme can you categorise the blog posts to make it easier to search for previous posts and can you archive the posts by month? Also is it possible to have a tag cloud in the right hand side bar?

Thank you for your help!

FranklinM2

Hi,

Yes you can categorize posts and create a blog for each category. You can also browse blog posts by months, example: http://avalon.wpengine.com/2013/04/

You can also have a tag cloud widget in the sidebar.

Hi Franklin, I like your theme but I need to give more visibility to the search bar in all pages. Is it easy to put it to the right of menu? I have only some notion of CSS code… Thanks!

FranklinM2

HI, Am happy you like it :)

You might need to modify header.php or just place the search widget where the social icons are currently displayed. The latter requires no code editing, just use the widget manager.

I have purchased your theme Avalon, but at my locahost it works fine but when i upload online the “theme options” does not work. How to fix this issue i have tried using google chrome and firefox, i dont know if it is a browser issue.

FranklinM2

If you are familiar with mysql, the options are stored in the ‘wp_options’ table as ‘avalon_options’. The data is stored as a serialized array. I don’t think we need to go there though as we can easily resolve this.

Check your email for details of what I need.

Thanks.

Hi, now i downloaded the update of Avalon, how can upgrade it wihout losing my configuration?

With import/export tools?

Thanks!

FranklinM2

Hi,

You can just delete the old version and install the new one if you haven’t made any changes. You can do that via ftp. If you made changes, you will need to transfer the changes to the new version first.

The import/export feature is for transferring/saving theme options, not the entire theme.

Cheers.

For some weird reason I can’t access my purchase code so I can’t register to your proper support site.

I’ve 2 issues:

1. How do I make the header background transparent? 2. My large background image disappears once I’m off the home page. How do I set it to be there on every page?

Thanks a million.

Thanks Frank, I tried the .boxed etc and can’t seem to get it right. The bg of the main content goes transparent, but not the header box. I’m stumped.

Bg issue is still there too, but only on post pages themselves now not actual pages.

FranklinM2

Hi,

Try adding !important so that it looks like this .boxed #body-wrapper, .boxed #header{ background-color: transparent !important }

I love how you’ve made use of the theme by the way :)

FranklinM2

I think the bg issue might be due to a javascript conflict of some sort. Try disabling the sidebar login widget and see what happens. If it doesn’t work, send me admin access to frank[@]radiumthemes.com

Is the logo included with the theme?

FranklinM2

Hi, The logo is not included with the theme. You need to make your own or buy the original from here http://graphicriver.net/item/abstract-photography-logo/1243685

Hello, I was wondering if this theme lets you choose different kinds of fonts, like google fonts. Thank you

FranklinM2

Hi,

Currently we don’t have that options but version 1.3 will include the feature inbuilt. It will be out soon. In the mean time you can use css or a number of font management plugins available to do that.

Pre-sales question
Is it possible to have the content area ( post / page container ) transparent as opposed to white?

FranklinM2

Hi,

Yes it’s possible to do that. One user has actually made the header transparent using a few css changes, same concept is applicable to the content area.

LeilasLass

oh cool! ty vm for the timely answer.
I can manage a tad bit of code, css and php, but is really no expert, but is certain Uncle Google has any answer I may require!

FranklinM2

If you need any help am happy to offer my assistance :)

Hi, I just purchased your awesome theme. After I install the theme in new WordPress site, it shows a single menu item “Home”. How can I edit the page that this “Home” link to?

Update: I managed to solve it. Many thanks.

Hello, The social buttons don’t work. It adds the link to the end of my domain.

Thanks

Hi,

Try adding the protocol to the url, example “http://www.facebook.com”

The “http://” part.

Hi Franklin, I need assistance in two areas:

1. Can I change the default icons in the iconbox shortcode to my own set of icons? 2. Can I add more icons into the iconbox shortcode? 3. Can I add side-navigation menu to the layout or pages?

Hope to hear from you soon. Many thanks.

FranklinM2

Hi, Sorry for missing your post :)

1). You can replace the icons if you need to. They have been added by css you can add some more too if you wish.

2). Yes, each page can have a unique sidebar. You can use the sidebar generator to create new sidebars and then set the position by editing the page. I have some screenshots http://avalon.wpengine.com/features/sidebar-manager/
