Hello, I’m very satisfied with my BigBang theme. However, when I visited my page today and checked the clients list something had happened. Instead of five columns and several rows, it’s one row and five columns. All pictures are on top of each other. Take a look at the link http://rightnleft.se/mypitch/team/our-clients/

What have I done?

Best regards,

Rikard

Hi Rikard,

It looks fine for me. Sometimes the grid gets messed and I’ve tried several solutions but couldn’t find the solution for this random issues…

Hi there…

1. I would like to use the same Twitter ap that you have in the demo, but can’t seem to find it and the Twitter Timeline is awful.

2. Also, I found a Photostream plugin that you designed (though it’s not technically compatible) that I like. I want to use it as I want to be able to display my Flickr stream. However, it’s not working. At the moment i can’t show you my site as it is in maintenance mode. However, if you can email me your IP, I can unblock it for you.

3. Which is the shortcode for the ‘recent work’ grid on your demo site?

My email is: lorrie@illusiocreative.co.uk

Thanks.. Hoping I don’t have too many questions.

Hi,

Have you downloaded main files, or just the theme? Our twitter widget is in the main files ZIP (alongside with help file…)

Our plugin (Brankic Photostream Widget) works only in sidebars. I’ve notices some issues with Flickr (maybe because they’ve done a lots of changes few days ago). This widget is also in the main files ZIP…

Do you see Brankic Shortcode button? http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/2826493-bigbang-responsive-wordpress-template?index=9

Yes, I got this problem sorted out, as I posted below. The widgets work fine. My biggest head ache, is the Portfolio. I cannot get the short code to work on the actual portfolio page, all I have is a page of posts. Am tearing my hair out. The only time i got it to work was to create a ‘portfolio’ item and put the code in that and include it in the menu. But then I had one of the sliders from one of the item pages going over the boxed and a url that showed; illusiocreative.co.uk/portfolio/portfolio Have been at this now for two days… :(

When we have a project name that is too long for the line, it will take the wording that is left and throw it into the second line. I can’t seem to get it to line up under the name. Here’s what it is doing:

Project: Kokomo-Howard County Public Library

How can I get the second line to line up with the name of the project?

Thanks

Ok. So I deactivated all plugins and that did not correct anything. Can you tell me which one was causing the issue?

I left them deactivated.

Hi,

I can see some elements which are not from our theme. e.g check the source and look for BasicParagraph. As long as I see stuff like these I can’t help you…

Default-user

Thanks. I hadn’t see that. It appears the client was typing everything out in MS word and then pasting into the visual editor.

I’ve got two questions:

1 – I’m using the portfolio in the theme but would like to change the text that appears under the title and category of each portfolio item on the main portfolio page. Currently, it pulls text from the beginning of the content on the individual portfolio pages. I would like it to instead display the sub-title text on from each individual portfolio page. Where do I make that change?

2 – The primary blog page which shows the latest posts pulls it’s title and sub-title from the name and description of the site. I would like for it to instead take it’s name and sub-title from what I entered on the “Blog” page in the “Pages” section. Where do I make that change?

Thanks!

Default-user

Don’t know why the middle didn’t get sent but here are the questions. Currently the main portfolio page pulls the text which appears under the title and category of each project from the beginning of the content of each project. I would like to instead pull the text from the sub-title of each project—how do I do that? And also, the name and sub-title of the blog are currently pulled from the name and sub-title of the entire site. How can I change it to be pulled instead from the name and title on the page I have named “Blog”. Or is there a different way to change them?

Thanks!

Brankic1979

Hi,

If you blog page and category slugs are the same category template will be used. In that case you can’t use Brankic Custom Fields because they can be used only on page templates.

If you want to show subtitle you’ll have to edit includes/bra_shortcodes.php function bra_portfolio()

We’re not providing support on these kind of issues, but if you (or your friend) have basic PHP knowledge you can do it yourself…

Hi. Love the theme. One question. Is there a way to attach the footer to the bottom at all time. A lot of the pages is not filled enough and it makes the footer placed in the middle of the browser..

Would be much appreciated if there is a way to solve this problem. Is there anyone who have solved this problem?

Thanks..

Hi,

We’ve tried some scripts and codes and we couldn’t make it work fine in all browsers :(

This is probably a simple fix but I’m having difficulty with the the Youtube videos I posted showing up when I click the magnifying glass. It comes up with the error “image cannot be loaded. make sure the path is correct & image exist.”

See: http://monksinmanhattan.com/movie-trailers/

I noticed in the help doc it says that “YouTube and Vimeo must have full path (not shorten one)...”

I googled this & can’t figure out how to find the “full path” all I have is the share URL youtube provides.

Any idea what’s going wrong here? I’m not sure if this is the correct forum to post or if I need to contact the WP-pretty photo folks. Please let me know.

Brankic1979

Hi,

for http://youtu.be/EF520mkrNVk “full path” is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EF520mkrNVk

I can see there is no more link to full video URL :(

Thanks so much for the quick response, that did the trick. Maybe if you provide an example URL in the theme documentation it may help folks out.

Is there a way to put social media Icons in the top right of the pages?

Brankic1979

Not in this theme.

There are plugins which puts fixed container to your website, so you should try these…

Hi there..

Can’t seem to make any of the shortcodes work, including the photostream.

I have taken it out of maintenance mode so you can have a look.

I forgot to ask, my logo in the header is causing my menu to move up. Is there a way to fix that without changing the size of my logo? See site here: www.insomniackc.com

Brankic1979
With this Extra CSS (Brankic Panel) you can move your logo up, so your header will have better look
#logo {
  margin-top: 5px;
}

Hi,

You should disable all of your plugins and try it again. 99% it’s a plugin conflict…

Hi.

How can I do a homepage like this http://demo.brankic.net/bigbangwp/home/home-portfolio/, with portfolio items, divided by categories…? And how and where can I do and put slides on home page like that?

Thank you. Sorry my bad English. I’m brazilian.

Brankic1979

Hi,

It’s all explained in the help file

(you have to create posts, organize them into categories with one parent category and choose that parent category in the portfolio shortcode http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/2826493-bigbang-responsive-wordpress-template?index=9 )

Every time I change the text of the word in my page(color) and clikc update it doesnt update and reverts back to old. How do i fix this(using Mozilla)

Also Can I change the Image BigBang to My Website name?

Brankic1979

Hi,

Really don’t understand your issue :(

Default-user

i mean you know it says the name Big Bang on the theme right; logo? SO im asking can I change that name, With the same format; to a different name?

Thanks for the terrific theme. How can I get images to appear on the homepage under the “Recent Work” caption?

Brankic1979

Hi,

Thanks.

Recent work on home page is a portfolio shortcode. In shortcode pop-up window you have to select category with posts. Images you can see in the grid are featured images of these posts…

I hope that makes sense…

Hi,

My URL is sammaclean.com

I can’t find how to create / insert my images and projects on my portfolio page. I would like a 3 column structure with the orange/hover & caption.

Where do I edit these settings?

Brankic1979

Sam,

In the help file it’s explained how to use portfolio shortcode http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/2826493-bigbang-responsive-wordpress-template?index=9

You have to select category with posts. Images are featured images of these posts…

Well, I seem to have sorted out most of the problems I had with the widgets etc. BUT, I cannot make the portfolio work for love nor money, or understand fully your documentation.

Frustrated…so calling it a night.

Brankic1979
http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/2826493-bigbang-responsive-wordpress-template?index=9

There you have to choose portfolio and select the category with posts. These posts must haev featured image set and this is it.

I hope that makes sense…

Extremely happy with the theme. Could you please help me manually change the overlay color and opacity of the bra_icon_boxes_container section.

I can’t seem to figure out where to get started. Thanks, and great job!

Hi,

Add this to Extra CSS in Brankic Panel
.services div:hover a, .services div:hover a {

Eureka..

I finally worked out how the Portfolio works. Now, I would just like to change the order of the portfolio items. How can I do that?

Other than that..quite happy.

Hi Lorrie,

portfolio items are ordered by it’s date. You can change the date of each post manually…

You keep saying create posts? You can’t put blog posts in the menu. Do you mean ‘Pages’?

Portfolio Troubleshooting

A recurring issue throughout the 144 pages of questions is how to set up portfolio page correctly.

Could you quickly lay out a step by step guide to creating the portfolio? (Eg, Make category >Make menu > type this piece of html in this window)

:)

Brankic1979

Have you read the help file (it’s in the main files ZIP)

Create posts (normal or portfolio custom post type) and organize them into categories. Make one parent category for all of these cats. Each post must have featured image.

http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/2826493-bigbang-responsive-wordpress-template?index=9 and click on portfolio, customize the layout and choose parent category…

I hope this helps…

I absolutely agree with sammaclean13 above. I have bought many, many themes on Theme Forest, and have to say, that all without exception, though wonderfully designed, have very poor documentation. Designers make too many assumptions about the skill level of the people buying and using these themes. And those of us with a lot experience and competence will struggle if the documentation is poor. It took me half a day to work out how to actually install the portfolio, and that was through a process of trial and error. One screen cap and a few lines of text is NOT a comprehensive instruction on what is such an important feature of the theme.

Can I suggest therefore, that instead of adding more features to an already very good theme, that you put your next efforts into creating more detailed documentation overall.

Thanks…

Brankic1979

Hi Illusio,

I can see you’ve worked on this theme last evening. So many times in my working career (more than 15 yrs) I had times when nothing is working, but tomorrow in the morning I saw the solution in a second.

English is not my native language (as you can see :) ) so trying to explain something which is simple in my language isn’t that easy. Also what is obviously for someone, it’s not for someone else (even if they speak the same language)

Of course, there are no excuse for poor documentation, but please trust me, most authors here are giving their best to suit all clients…

Regards

Please understand, I am just very, very frustrated. I really think for the Portfolio element, you need to do a step by step process, with a screen cap for every step. I have never had so much trouble.
