Feel free to ignore my previous question about the slider and such. I do still have one question… for the sliders, it seems like you manually have to make images that size for them to be like they are on your preview home page… is that correct?

Brankic1979

Best practice is to edit images before uploading them to the server. Of course, best results you’ll get if you optimize images in photo editing software…

Firlyes to add a slider of image on that page, you have to add the images you want in the slide as the “extra images” on the right hand side. The only thing I have found, though, is you have to manually make some images the exact size in order for them to all look like the nice horizontal slider. If not, the slider defaults to making it the size of your images and that looks weird when they are vertical or not the right size. I am waiting to hear back if that is, in case, the only way to have the slider the nice size they have in preview.

Thanks for answering

Yes, you have to edit images manually before uploading to your media library.

Google Analytics Anyone? I’ve installed the Google analytics code, but Google doesn’t recognize it. Is there something I’m missing other than simply pasting the code into the field for the code on the Brankic panel?

Brankic1979

Hi,

You have to add the code with <javascript tag before and after the code…

May I see the URL to check if code is right?

Best theme there is. I was wondering if its possible on the portfolio page of displaying little thumbnails of the Extra Images?

Hi,

Thanks!

Great idea, but right now we’re too busy, so I’m afraid there won’t be time for such an update :(

My portfolio section is just not working right. -Filters do not show up -My next and back arrows will take me, not to the next portfolio item, but to some completely random portfolio piece or not go anywhere at all. -When I delete all categories and just have regular un-categorized portfolio pieces and i try to add them in the shortcode it wont display anything on the page.

What gives?

Brankic1979

Filters should show if you select category which have children in portfolio shortcode pop-up window.

It’s all about choosing right category in the shortcode

Every day i am amazed by the beautiful work behind the scenes of this theme. Anyone reading this should not just consider a purchase, but make on instantly.

Greetings from Denmark.

Thank you very much on very kind words.

I think you haven’t asked me anything about the theme before, so I guess basic WP knowledge is enough for configuring the BigBangWP.

Thanks again…

Hi Brankic1979 – I have been reading through all the support posts to see what other people have done with your theme as I am thinking of purchasing.

The best one so far is http://sugarandtype.com/

Some of your purchasers are very rude in their support expectations. As a purshaser of one of these themes you need to be competent in HTML, CSS and Wordpress basics. They are not understanding this. Sorry you have to deal with that.

Brankic1979

Thank you very much for standing up for me :)

I’m aware that users expecting everything for $45, but the truth is exactly what you said.

Hi there,

I have successfully created the Contact form but the re-Captcha doesn’t seem to recognize correct answer. I have generated my keys (i didn’t mix up public and private key) and every time i enter the correct words, it comes up with invalid captcha.. there is nothing in a help file about this. Is there anything else I have to do to get the re-Captcha work? Thanks heaps.

Also, is there any eCommerce plugin that you would recommend to use with the BigBang Theme?

Brankic1979

Hi,

Another user reported the same thing. It looks there is a conflict since the last update of WP. I’ll try to fix it in next few days.

Hello, is there any way we can configure the FB, Twitter and Google Plus share buttons to box count instead of button count?

Also, is there any shortcode for that so that we can control where it appears?

Thanks!

Brankic1979

Hi,

The code for sharing buttons is in share.inc.php You can edit this file on your computer, or directly on the server (Appearance -> Editor)

To change position of this sharing box, you’ll have to edit single.php

Hi! I’m having trouble using the short code:

.item-info-overlay { background: rgba(249, 110, 91, 0.5); }

I’m inserting it into the extra css in the brankic panel but the hover on my portfolio images are still the solid opaque navyblue…

Brankic1979

May I see the URL so I could see if Extra CSS is properly inserted?

Default-user

Just discovered, the overlay does not work on the circular gallery images but will work for the portfolio images

Default-user

how do I get it to work for the gallery hover?

Default-user

I take that back, sorry! It does not work for the portfolio images that I have adjusted to be circular*

Last question and I am official done with my site!... I want to have a pop-up contact form show up when I click on the CONTACT US menu bar at the top… I have the pop-up contact form all set, but I can’t figure out how to code it in the actual menu bar to read it properly. In the menu bar, the only option is for a URL address; is there a way to add a direct pop-up form from the menu?

Hi,

Without some jQuery you can’t do that. Try to hire freelancer with JavaScript skills.

Hello. I’m new at Wordpress and found this really easy to use (I’m just doing basic changes).

A couple questions:

1. There is a button with a grid on it within a portfolio page – right now it directs to “items-shaped-as-circle/” How do I link the button so it goes back to my main portfolio “work” page?

2. How do I change the code to add the icons on the home page? I put png’s on my server and tried to link them – http://www.myservername/icons/dollor.png – but the caption repeats itself where the icon used to be.

Thanks very much.

Brankic1979

Hi,

grid button URL has to be defined on portfolio post editor. It’s the last Brankic Custom Field below the editor. You have to define it for each post.

Icons for Icon box shortcode must be in www.yourservername/wp-content/themes/bigbnagwp/icons.

I cannot get a caption to stick to my “extra images” on the right when making a portfolio post slider. The option to type in a caption is there, but when I hit update, it wipes the caption away. Thoughts?

How do you make the image sliders either slow down the time between transitions or speed them up?

Thanks in advance!

Brankic1979

Hi,

You can customize sliders if you edit slider.inc.php (Appearance -> Editor)

Near the end of the file are settings for each type of slider (post, page, portfolio)

Hi there! I have purchased the theme and our site is up and running. LOVE LOVE LOVE your design sense and everything is working great! We have solved many issue ourselves but I have one I can’t figure out. I am making the contact form send to our booking system which likes emails formatted a certain way, i.e. in plain text, and without the spaces and dashes that automatically are generated in the email between the field name and the input. This is how the email comes through…

First Name: – lovely Last Name: – lady2 Email: – lady@gmail.com Phone: – 234 234 2342 Event Date: – 24 Jan 2014 – Wedding – google – asf sad fas df sadfasdf

I would like to know how to remove the spaces and dashes from the automatically created email, as well as add the field names to the last 3 fields (because I created those by editing the admin_3 page and the contact form template page, but I don’t really know what I’m doing.)

So ideally the email created would be in plain text and look like this…

First Name: lovely Last Name: lady2 Email: lady@gmail.com Phone: 234 234 2342 Event Date: 24 Jan 2014 Shoot Type: Wedding How did you hear about us: google Comments: asf sad fas df sadfasdf

Our site address is www.playaweddings.com if u want to look at the contact page.

Thanks so much!!!

Perhaps someone can help me, I’m having some video issues..

- Last week Vimeo links stopped working using the light box (just loads forever)

- SWF and .MOV files have no functionality (play/pause etc). MOV files don’t play at all using lightbox

- The only success I’m having is with YouTube and to be honest I’d really like to avoid linking to YouTube

Any help or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated

Cheers!

Brankic1979

Hi,

Have you installed any new video plugin? If Yes, try to disable all of them.

If this doesn’t help, please post URL here so I could see the source…

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response. Vimeo started working again without me doing anything (strange). However I’m still having no luck with self hosted video. Ideally I’d like to stream .movs from my server. When I do this lightbox stays black and when you visit the portfolio page there are no buttons on the player, like the SWF in your template example. How can these be added?

Take a look at the 1st video (National University) on my homepage to see what I mean

Hi,

You have to add width and height parameters to the end of the path.

Something like this
