Nice theme! A few questions:

1) What is the proper dimensions for a background pattern? I’ve tried several sizes but they are getting bitmapped.

2) Can you tell me how to add a top navigation area, above the search box but within the header area?

3) Can you give me custom CSS for the menu (I want it to be different than the body font.)

THANKS ! S.

Hi,

1. No proper dimensions though you only need to use the full size image when inset the image see the screenshot: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/ESyoYzqgnFRxlGgTPXpK_8R9UZ4d2yqaIOXtsF_OJb8

2. Create a new wp menu in theme-functions.php line 43 and refer to http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu for more information to show the wp menu in the theme.

3. Just put this code #main-menu ul li a{ font-family: "Font"; }

Hello. I have problems with the portfolio Page. (http://www.kreativkarussell.ch/werkstatt/) I don’t know how i can insert the image. I listen in the manual that it can not be uploaded as a post image item. How then? The Portfolioarticle is by me as a blog?!

Also i have prolems with the video file.

Also, it gives me the portfolio as BLOG ?

Thanks for your help

Hello,

First thing you should to do is create a new page using portfolio page template then start add portfolio item from Dashboard -> Portfolio Item -> Add New, click set featured image in the lower right of the page to add an image for your portfolio item.

I think you should to import the demo data so you can know how it work and learn from it.

Greetings again. When I add 6 teasers in 2 columns on the home page, it’s broken:

http://www.justresolve.com.php53-28.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/

(login info sent to you via email)

Also, on the second row of the home page (where the teaser second row is) I really want:

1/2 column text 1/2 column video

(two columns total)

Is that possible?

Thanks!

Ok thanks. The font and header menu issues are resolved, but I’m still having issues with the background:

http://www.justresolve.com.php53-28.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/

Any ideas?

Rifki

Hi,

Maybe your image isn’t quite good. I create a transparent background pattern for you so you can combine it with any colors. Try it!

Rifki

Is it possible to add shortcodes to the home page to display the pricing tables instead of some other line of content?

Rifki

Hi,

Yes it possible, just create a pricing page like this and set it as a homepage.

Hi Rifki,

Not sure if you didn’t get my e-mail but I really need help with these items and I’m sure it would be useful information to have on here for others who have purchased your theme. I am having trouble uploading font awesome into my file manager Bluehost. I opened the folder “wp-content/themes/backbone/fonts”, its empty of course. Ive tried making 4 new “files” with the “fontawesome-webfont.eot,scg,ttf,woff” titles listed and uploading font awesome into them, that didn’t work. Then I tried making 4 new “folders” with the font awesome titles and uploading font awesome into those, that didn’t work either. What am I supposed to do here?

Also, I have a couple other questions for you: 1.) Why does my site not look correct on my i-phone? Ever since I changed your logo to mine, it lost the navigation bar when I open my site on my I-phone. The header also got bigger on my desktop PC and my logo is within 290px?

2.) Can I add a slogan in my header on the right side?

3.) Can my logo be bigger without the header getting larger?

4.) How do I change the yellow color icons on my page to the shade of red I use? I was able to change the navbar to red but that was it. www.absoluteelectric.net

Please advise, -Dave

Rifki

Dave,

Yes I got the email and I fixed your font awesome issue and now the icons appears in your site.

1. For me it’s look good either in PC, Laptop and I-phone. Can you give me a screenshot of the incorrect things?

2. Yes, put your slogan text to the line 64 of header.php

3. Still in header.php line 45 : “five” class replace with “eight” and line 55 : “eleven” class also replace with “eight”.

4. In the styling tab of theme options page and you already have the red color, aren’t you?.

Hi Rifki,

Here is a screen shot of my site on an I-phone, I even tried a second I-phone and it looks the same, how do I correct this?

http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m154/DONKENDAVE/websitescreenshot_zps19fffb35.png

In header.php I tried counting lines in several different ways to locate lines 45 and 55 to make the changes I need to make for a bigger logo and at best I found an 11 on what I’m guessing is line 55, however I’m not seeing a 5 anywhere above that which according to your directions would be line 45? Am I even on the right screen, dashboard/appearance/editor/header.php?

Thanks for the color corrections and the upload of font awesome, -Dave

Rifki

Hi Dave,

Uhh it was a container classes width issue, I sent you an email to correct this!

Use the code editor such as dreamweaver or notepad++ to open the file so you can easily find those line. And now your logo can be 450px of width.

The social icon images are broken. How do I fix this? I installed the theme and imported dummy data and the social icons were broke before and still broke after. No images show for them.

Is there a place to get some support?

chewie Purchased

Problem solved. But I still need some support on this theme. Any response would be great.

Rifki

Chewie,

I’m sorry friend, I am busy with a new theme and now I am ready to help you, just send me an email via my profile page.

Rifki

Hi Phil,

Thanks for purchase! :)

Put the telephone number to header.php line 62 under social links code. You may have to wrap the html tags so that you can easily add style to it.

Footer not showing on any page except home page.

I’ve mainly kept the default settings.

  • Sorry, a little pre-mature posting. a widget on the site had a conflict that didn’t allow anything below it to be displayed. It was a Youtube Subscribe Iframe code.
Rifki

Hi,

Please add closing iframe </iframe> on your “Watch my Videos” widget.

Hey Rifki I also had the same question about putting a phone number under the social icons. I added it on the line you said but it floats it to the left of the social icons. Any suggestions on the styling to make it work under the social icons?

Hi, I want to add Captcha to Contact form. How to do it

Hello again, I need help QUICK with a little issue- I completed most of my portfolio and have chosen to use the filtering. It is not working though! I don’t know why. The portfolio at first opens up and displays ALL projects, but when i select a category in the filter menu, all projects go away. They only display when “show all” is selected. Here is the link- http://tiny.cc/73somw -please help asap. I am under time crunch!

Rifki

Uh that’s really not good! try to limit the portfolio item, e.g 12 items. Please let me know if with 12 items it still doesn’t seem to works.

Rifki

Default-user

What?? Are you saying the portfolio must be limited to 12 items for ‘filtering’ to work?? That can’t be right.

Rifki

No I said try!

Is there a way that the author meta tags in the blog index or single post page be linked to all the author posts? Right now it’s not linked.

Thanks

site in question is byzblog.com

Hello … I have problems with the preview on my blog. I always displays the entire text on the blog page, although I use the excerpt field.

What can I do?

Thanks… and where i can translate this <more > tag?

thanks for Help

Rifki

You can change it manually from content.php, content-audio.php, content-image.php, content-video.php. The code look like :

<?php the_content('Continue Reading <span>?</span>'); ?>

hi, just purchased the backbone theme. would it be possible to get step-by-step instructions for how to exactly recreate the theme as it’s displayed on the demo? i imported the dummy data and it appears to all be there (pages, posts, portfolio, etc). but the site does not look anything like the demo (just looks like a blog). seems i’m missing a step. thanks!
