Hi there,

Thought you should know, the Demo XML content file links to the invalid media directory “meteor” on your website, instead of “bigcity”. Just an FYI that might confuse some clients.

Thanks for the excellent template!

One more thing, even attempting to change the Demo XML file to direct to your /bigcity/ directory instead of /meteor/, my import fails continually. I’ve tweaked my php settings, but still can’t get your demo menus and content.

Thanks in advance.

Hi again, I seem to be having trouble with the shortcodes- there are none appearing in my “Shortcode” section. I’ve tried adding the Shortcodes-ultimate plugin as stated in the read-me, but I get a fatal exception saying there’s basically a redundant reference:

“Fatal error: Cannot redeclare su_plugin_init() (previously declared in (omitted)/themes/bigcity/shortcodes-ultimate/shortcodes-ultimate.php:21) in (omitted)/wp-content/plugins/shortcodes-ultimate/shortcodes-ultimate.php on line 154”

Sorry to be a pain :)

Hello,

You do not have to install the plugin, button for shortcode builder will appear in your editor, see user manual for screenshots.

Thanks!

Much appreciated- I’m an HTML developer having a hell of a time at my first Wordpress experience!

Default-user

Me again- I wonder if there’s a better way I can contact you about problems? So far, in addition to the Demo XML, your Shortcodes-ultimate is a bit out of date, and there also seems to be a problem changing the h1 header font size in the BigCity options. Namely, whatever size it’s changed to always renders as the same size. Thanks!

You can post questions on forum.

This is a custom made version of shortcodes for this theme. Hmm, have you added px in the end? Also you can always change it in style.css

Thanks! :)

I am using the theme here http://okananter.com. I cannot get the post header to use a custom image for the post? Can you help please. Thank you. Enjoy your days.

Hello,

After adding your image link to custom header image input field, select custom header element in page options as your header.

Thanks!

I did not see how I could reply to your reply so I am putting it here.

I have all the custom fields correct including selecting the page option selection. It is set as “custom header.” Also I did this with a page and it works. I am trying to do it on a post not a page. The options are there they are selected correctly. The image link works… I am a bit puzzled. It might be something really simple or it might be that I have to reinstall the team and try again. Let me know what you think please. Enjoy your days. Okan

Maybe you are trying to do it on home page and not on single post?

Default-user

No, no…. it is on a post. I only have one post on the site and one page. On the homepage I have the post slider… which works fine. Maybe take one last look please. And if I cannot make it work.. I will do something else. Thanks Enjoy your days.

You are right, we have put wrong header there, whoop..

Open single.php and change
<?php get_header(); ?> 
to
<?php if (get_post_meta($post->ID, 'header_choice_select', true));{ get_header(get_post_meta($post->ID, 'header_choice_select', true)); } ?>

Thank you and happy holidays!

First of, I love this theme with my website so thank you for the great work.

My question is to do with responsive design on my website http://hairology.com.au. It works well on desktops and phones, however on tablet displays like the retina iPad, in portrait mode it shows the responsive site. In landscape mode, it shows the desktop site but not all of it, requiring to zoom out. Also the footer in landscape is not centered, appearing left aligned. With high resolution tablet displays, how do I make it so it shows the desktop version of the site?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

In all header php files (all files that contain header- part in their name) move this part from where it is

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

to right above:

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/mobile-style.css" />  

Hope that helps.

Thanks!

Hi there, another issue I’ve come across is the font size and background color of h1.entry-title can only be changed directly in the style.css; h1 options in the BigCity theme admin panel have no effect. Perhaps this, along with the other code issues mentioned above by Hairology, Oaktree and myself earlier could be added to an update? Thanks!

Hello,

Sizes for heading in theme options are only for content headings you add in your editor. But we will consider adding more options :)

Thanks!

Me again :) I can’t seem to get your shortcodes to work at all- they only display as verbose, and do not parse. For example, my pages will display “[quote]My content here[/quote] ” instead of displaying the Quotes shortcode. This is true for all of the BigCity shortcodes. Since there is no settings I can find for your shortcodes, I’m asking you here. Also, do you have an updated Demo_content.xml yet?

Thanks again for your prior help and comments!

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hmm, that’s strange, so you are sure theme files are located right in wp-content/bigcity folder? And also you do not have any other shortcode plugin.

If you mean images in demo content, then no, you will have to replace them with your ones.

Thanks!

Default-user

Theme files are in the default wp-content/themes/bigcity folder, and all of my plugins are disabled. I may have to re-install the theme again.

Regarding the Demo content, it would never import and fail every time- the links in the xml were wrong. I was looking to import the Demo Navigation, pages, and widget structure.

Thanks, BES

MNKY
MNKY Author

Hmm, don’t you have pages and menu after demo import? Navigation should be there, you just have to select it as primary navigation. Widgets are not imported with demo content.

Default-user

No pages and menu with import- all your links in the xml were to a defunct directory on your site called “meteo”, not to “bigcity”. It didn’t import even when I tried changing the directories myself.

MNKY
MNKY Author

It should import anyway, except images, have just imported file on test server and all works fine. But, we can send you curernt demo file, if you wish, you should contact us directly then, so we can do it. Thanks!

Default-user

I’ll give it another try. I’m also still trying to get shortcodes to work, not sure if it has to do with the recent wordpress update.

Thank you!

Sorry in advance, I’m sure this is stupid, but is there a preferred way to use google analytics for the blog posts? We’re just the site as a blog, so really just one page. www.prepsterpunk.com

Hello,

You should constult google analytics instructions and put the code in your header php files. Also you can use a plugin for this.

Thank you!

Hi there,

Can I just ask how do I make each post on the blog index page have a cut off, and then give it a “Read more” link at the end to the full post?

Right now all of my posts are showing up in full on the blog index page. Perhaps they are too short, but where do I go to make adjustments to the word limit (I’m assuming it’s a word limit)?

Thanks for your help!

Hi again! I did a complete re-install of my Wordpress, and after uploading the theme, shortcodes finally worked! Thanks for your help, not sure what went screwy… Another question, I can’t seen to find a widget for “Latest Tweets” as shown in your live demo, best I can do is generate an RSS feed for our Twitter, but it doesn’t embed very nicely. Thoughts? Thanks!

What I mean to say is, no link or image will appear in a lightbox- every image, video and file link opens in a new or parent window. No lightbox.

Aaaaaaand, I’m back with another question. You guys have been great with your support, by the way, kudos! My question is in regards to the Mobile version of the responsive layout- I would like to make the sidebar content appear below the main page content instead of disappearing completely as it currently does. Where should I start? Thanks!

MNKY
MNKY Author

hey,

Add this to your mobile.css file:

#sidebar_right, #sidebar_left {display:block; margin-top:30px; float:left; width:100%;}
#sidebar_right .widget-area, #sidebar_left .widget-area {width:100%;}
#primary{width:100%}

It’s ok, because images are not imported, they are replaced with dummy ones.

For lightbox images have to link to file. Press file url in link field when inserting the image.

Hi There. I just purchased your theme. Excellent backend. Super easy to use! I just had one question. When enabling the orbitz slider. Is there a way to configure to ONLY have the slider show up on the home page and nowhere else?

Is your home page a blog? And you want orbit slider to be visible only on first page of it? Unfortunately, it is not possible.

Hello. First off, very nice theme – thank you! I’m through most of the big customization on my site, but somehow lost the shadow box / image for both the header and the content box. I’ve changed the borders and content color to white, but was still hoping to have the shadows for better definition on the page. You can check out the site at www.rjruud.com

Thanks much for your help!

Hi,

In style.css find .entry-content and add box shadow property to it.
