Hello,

The Word count doesn’t work.

How to fix it?

Thx.

Do you mean for post slider?

Thanks!

No, while writing a post.

Thx.

There is no such option, you should use read more tag:

Hi MKNY,

Been using this theme for over a year, really love it. Just upgraded to the latest version. Huge improvement…I’m especially a fan of the responsive layout. Real quick – I’m using the custom menu widget to get a horizontal menu in my header, and I have to use a null menu to prevent a duplicate from appearing in my left sidebar. But now the navigation dropdown on the smaller-screensize versions only displays the null menu. Any ideas for a workaround?

You can see the site here: http://www.truefalsetheatre.org/beta

thanks!

Hello,

In bigcity/scripts/jquery.mobilemenu.js try changing line 78, change #primary-main-menu to your menu id.

Thanks!

Great theme – incredibly easy to set up and use. View it in use here (still under construction – see questions below): http://www.lcfrenchbulldogrescue.org/

Just three questions:

- where in the CSS can I edit the default background color for the su-box (I know we can edit it manually each time we use it, but I don’t want to ask the site users to try to figure out hex codes).

- where in the CSS can I increase the HEIGHT of the logo image?

- where in the theme – or the CSS – can I increase the HEIGHT of the slider images?

Finally, my slider text is not displaying at the moment – just the slide. I have it set to forty words. Any ideas what the issue might be?

Thanks again!

Hello,

1. In shortcodes-ultimate/css/style.css

2. Find #logo in style.css

3. Post slider? You can do this in post slider settings in dash boards.

Have you set it to display both thumbnails and excerpt? Also you can enter excerpt text in special excerpt field of the post. To activate it, press screen options on top right when editing the post.

Thanks!

Post slider fixed – my error, thanks for pointing it out :)

Still can’t suss the logo height – edited the line in the CSS sheet as follows, with the actual dimensions of the logo:

logo{position:absolute; height:171px; bottom:0; left:176px;}

.. but it’s still cut off on the theme, as you’ll see -

Any suggestions?

sorry, code wasn’t included properly:

#logo{position:absolute; height:171px; bottom:0; left:176px;}

Am having trouble installing the theme into wordpress. Says stylesheet is missing? Anybody have a solution please?

Hello,

Please unzip your download package and find bigcity.zip and install it.

Thanks!

Hi – installed Big City www.peterbillingham.com and I can’t get the Big City twitter feed to work just stays empty when I add to widget area? What am I doing wrong?

Hello,

We are using Simple Twitter Widget in bigcity theme, just install this plugin.

Thanks!

Hi Thanks for the reply – thats what I am using. I drag the widget to the correct area and it shows on blog page side bar but with nothing in it? I can send a screen shot or if you go to peterbillingham.com you will see I will leave it there – shows no tweets and signin name is correct thanks for the help!

Hmm, have you entered correct setings? You can also use any other twitter plugin with this theme.

Thanks!

I we have purchased this theme today, but the main files are missing i.e blog page (Blog – blog page with sidebar and post slider) This was the main purpose for buying this theme. Can you check this please

Hello,

Just select your blog and home page in settings->reading. Or select first page to display your latest posts and blog template will be applied to first page. Also use primary widget area to add widgets to that page.

Thanks!

Hi Thanks…for the help .. now how do i activate the Slider for this Here is the link http://s218101435.onlinehome.us/cicadawordpress/

Thanks!

Hi Thanks again for reply – yes, setting are correct but no tweeter feed? I’m stuck for suggestions – I have removed and added again but not twitter – is it a bug? Thanks

Have you tried any other twitter plugins?

Thanks!

I love the theme.

How would you direct me if I was desiring to have a main/landing page that appeared visually similar to pinterest? I see language like masonry, isotope, and vertical stack. Is there a simple template or plugin you would suggest?

Thanks.

Hi,

Glad you like our theme.

There are many changes to be made to achieve this layout. There are ready themes like this, maybe it is better to use ready solution?

Thanks!

Second request for help with editing the height of the logo.

Your instructions to add a height tag via the CSS did not work – the logo is still cutting off, and my client is increasingly frustrated by this, as I am. The site can’t go live until it is fixed.

An increase in logo height is not an uncommon requirement for many sites, and the original height pre set is NOT very generous.

Can you PLEASE attempt to send me details on what I need to edit in the CSS to set the custom height of the logo?

See question above for the edited code sample, which did nothing to increase height, and the sample site, as before, is here: www.lcfrenchbulldogrescue.org

Hi,

Just go to Theme Options and in General Options enter Header height. ( enter 200px, for example)

Thanks!

I’m afraid that doesn’t work. I’ve set it at 450px, which is the max it will let me set, and the logo is still cut off, in spite of it being significantly less in height than this.

Have you added px in the end? Have just tested once again, all works as it should.

CONFLICT ALERT!

Just updated WP, and decided to also activate Jetpack.

Got this error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare grunion_media_button() (previously declared in /home/abulldogsadmin/lcfrenchbulldogrescue.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/contact-form/admin.php:25) in /home/abulldogsadmin/lcfrenchbulldogrescue.org/wp-content/themes/bigcity/functions/contact-form/grunion-contact-form.php on line 682

... with zero access to WP Admin panel. Am attempting to delete Jetpack via ftp, but the entire back end of the site is now broken.

update: deleted Jetpack via Filezilla, back end is still broken!!!

Help!

Try clearing your cache. Also you can disable integrated contact form in functions.php, delete this line:

require_once (TEMPLATEPATH . ’/functions/contact-form/grunion-contact-form.php’);

Thanks!

Hi Thanks for the help, its working perfectly fine Here’s the live link http://blog.edificebuilders.com/ The only problem i am facing is the portfolio page. Created a page and selected the portfolio attribute, but my dash board does not show portfolio section…..

Hello,

It is above theme options tab.

Thanks!

Is it possible to add multiple items to a single portfolio item?

I want to have featured image and another 5 images showcasing my portfolio work but I can’t figure out myself how to do it.

Hello,

You can add a gallery with images into a content of portfolio post.

Thanks!

Hi there,

First of all, congrats on a great theme. Just bought this a few weeks ago, but was away on business so was unable to play with it.

Just installed the theme yesterday, but it gave me a “HTTP Error 500”, and everything was unable to work, including accessing my wordpress dashboard. It was only solved after I deleted the theme via FTP.

I then tried installing it again and the error was replicated, this time i checked the live preview for Big City before activating it, and I got the same error.

Do you think you can help me with this problem? I really love the theme and am dying to use it for my new site, thanks!

Hello,

Please try deadcivating pluginas, maybe there is a problem there.

Also reupload theme manually via ftp and make sure to use binary transfer mode.

Thanks!

Seems to be working fine now after deactivating my plugins, thanks!
