How do I make the footer section of my website sticky so that it always stays at the bottom of every page? Usually it’s not an issue if there’s enough content to scroll on a page, but a few of my pages don’t have enough content, and thus, the footer floats awkwardly in the middle of the page. Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks!

Hi there

I’m new to your themes. I just purchased BigBang and I wanted the footer with the roll-over social media buttons on the bottom left footer to show up on mine too. how can I add them? I tried going thru the widget menu to the left of wordpress dashboard but nothing similar appears that I can choose… Thank you

How can I make the padding in the grid so my images are not touch at the top and the bottom (2 rows of 4)?

Also, how can I move the arrows on the slider to the sides in the middle, instead of the bottom left corner? Can i make them a little more transparent?

Thank you!

Hi Morgan,

You have to download Main File(s) not only theme files…

I’ve been trying to install and get this set up and am having some trouble. I couldn’t figure out how to get images to appear in the portfolio pages, so I decided to go back and re-import all the content. I tried to delete all the pages, images, content, etc. However, when I tried to Import the .xml file, it says that everything already exists. This happens even after I empty the trash. I went back and deleted and re-installed the theme, deleted all categories, pages, library, etc. Now when I reimport the XML, I am left only with Blog 1, Column 4, Default Layout and Elements at my top menu. None of the imported images are showing up in the Items Shaped As Hexagon page or any others. I thought I had deleted everything, but for some reason my Pinterest is still showing on the bottom.

Help! I am a novice user and had luck with the back end of Atlantica (after learning a little code) but the HELP FILE included with Big Bang isn’t quite enough for me to get this up and running.

I deactivated Maintenance Mode so you could see it. I’m www.fiveanddimestudio.com.

Hello, I posted a question a week ago and in most of the cases you answer really quick. Therefore I post same question again because it’s really bothering for me and my visitors:

On some devices (especially smartphones) I have problems with “wavering” text elements on the front page. You use the same in your demo: “Hello and welcome…”. When I visit your demo page on my phone (iphone 4 and 5) same (frustrating) title wavering appears. It’s like the text can’t decide where to break the text to fit the screen.

Is there any possibility to fix this?

Best, Rikard

Brankic1979

Hi Rikard,

Sorry if I’ve missed your question :(

I’ve noticed this on some (old) smartphone. On my current smart devices (iPhone 4S, Samsung S3 and iPad2) I don’t see this…

Default-user

Thanks for your reply! I’ve once more tried the site on different devices. On Ipad mini and 4 it worked, but not on Iphone 5, 4S and 4. What can the reason be?

Brankic1979

Hi,

Problem is : it’s working just fine on our iPhone :(, so it’s impossible for us to find a solution for this issue :(

Hello, Could you please explain how I slow down the speed of the main slideshow? Thanks.

Hi,

Appearance -> Editor slider.inc.php and near the end of the file change settings for PAGE SLIDER…

Further to my question above – I figured out how to fix the top menu. However, I still can’t get your dummy content back in place, so I can’t see how you get your images to appear in the Items Shaped as Hexagons. When I create a Portfolio Item, there is no option to give it a category. I wish there was a way to search back through the 176 pages of comments, as I’m sure someone has already asked this.

Based on this:”To create portfolio page, you have to use shortcode Portfolio. Before that you have to create portfolio posts organized by subcategories. Create parent portfolio category and subcats. Posts must be assigned to subcats, and in shortcode you have to select parent category.”

My understanding was that I created Portfolio categories, then create a Portfolio Item for each image I want to include in my portfolio. Is that correct? Then I change the Portfolio code on Items Shaped as Hexagons to the Cat ID of the category I put each Portfolio Item in? Or do I put all of the images I want into one Portfolio Item? Either way, I can’t figure out how to assign the Portfolio Item to the category so it will appear on the Items Shaped As Hexagons page (and yes, I want to change that name later).

Thanks!

“My understanding was that I created Portfolio categories, then create a Portfolio Item for each image I want to include in my portfolio. Is that correct? Then I change the Portfolio code on Items Shaped as Hexagons to the Cat ID of the category I put each Portfolio Item in”

RIGHT.

But you don’t need to search for ID. There is a shortcode button where you can choose category from the drop down menu.

If you don’t see this, check Screen Options button near the top of the page and check if Portfolio categories is checked…

Default-user

Thanks. I still can’t get this to work. On your example above, the menu looks different than what I see. Under Dashboard, I have Posts, Portfolio (which has its own Portfolio Items as a sub) and then Portfolio Items. If I “Add New” under Portfolio, I have the option to check Category but not extra images. If I “Add New” under Portfolio Items I can add lots of extra images but there is nowhere to add the category – even when I drop down Screen Options.

I tried to add images as a new item under both of these but neither is working.

The page appear, but there are no images, hexagon shaped or otherwise. Help!

I can only guess you don’t have admin rights.

Hello, Can you help? I’ve set up my site, but when I’m on any portfolio item’s page, the little icon on the lower left (that looks like a mosaic) that is supposed to lead the user to ‘all’ items leads them to the wrong page. It takes them to ‘column 4-items shaped as triangles’ page which is a page I haven’t really used. To try and resolve it, I’ve deleted that page from my site completely, but it still seems to go there.

I also noticed this question was previously asked and the answer was about the permalinks being too simple? I have my permalinks set up as ‘Post name’.

Thanks very much!

Brankic1979

Hi,

This has nothing to do with permalinks structure. You haven’t defined parent page for your portfolio items. Check the last option below editor (in Brankic Custom Fields) on each portfolio item edit page…

Brankic Twitter Plugin no longer loads my tweets:

{“errors”: [{“message”: “The Twitter REST API v1 is no longer active. Please migrate to API v1.1. https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/overview.", “code”: 68}]}

Brankic1979

You’re right,

I’ll have to update this widget. Meanwhile, try one of many Twitter widgets available in WP plugins directory…

pedalconsumption

Thanks for the confirmation. Looking forward to update!

Brankic1979

Not that easy as I thought.

Right now I can’t find proper solution. Meanwhile, check what Lorrie (Illusio) wrote in previous posts…

I ended using “Really Simple Twitter Feed Widget” plugin which was easy to set up and works great.

Attached is new version which is working fine

I can’t get the flexslider to work on my website. I am adding images on the “Featured Image” “Set extra image 1” etc. bar on the right hand side. Is there a shortcode that I am missing? Should the images automatically slide from one to next, once I put images in these sections? When I put the images in this section, they just stack one on top of another.

Thanks for your help.

Brankic1979

Hi,

It should work out of box. Are you using some 3rd party plugins? Disable ALL plugins and check again…

There are no 3rd party plugins. I also have wiped out the whole website and re-installed the theme and it still didn’t work :/

Brankic1979

Hi,

Maybe this page has the same slug as some category. In that case category template is used. May I see the URL?

Hi, Can you use Type Kit with this instead of google fonts?

Brankic1979

Hi Amber,

Not out of box. You’ll have to edit header.php but I think hiring the freelancer will be easier…

Hi There,

I’ve just downloaded this and installed it but I cannot the help file anywhere. I’ve gone through the folder I downloaded a number of times and am pretty sure it’s not there.

Is there anywhere else I can get it?

Thanks for the reply re the page slider, found it and done it!

Final question, my ‘alt’ tags are displaying blank in the source code, despite them all being filled out in the backend. Do you know why this might be?

Brankic1979

Hi,

Alt tag for slider of for normal images or something else?

May I see the URL?

Default-user

For the slider images and the main site logo.

Here is the URL: http://philstorey.co.uk/

Brankic1979

Hi,

I can’t see from the source what version you’re using (you’ve changed main CSS file), but in latest version alt tags are there.

For logo there is no alt tag, but you can add this
<?php brankic_titles(); ?>
to alt tag in header.php…

Hi there..

I too have found the Twitter plugin is no longer working. It’s happened on other sites using other themes. I suspect this is something to do with Twitter, and possibly because they are trying to force people to use their own Twitter widget (which is awful ugly). I will keep tabs on this thread to see if you can get it working again, as I prefer yours.

Best wishes Lorrie

Brankic1979

Hi Lorrie,

After 2 days of trying to find best solution – nothing :(

New Twitter API force users to register and to get 4 different keys to work if you want to make custom widget. Don’t ask me why, but it’s a big problem right now…

Hi there hun…

In the meantime, I found a solution to the awful scroll bar on the Jetpack widget. I will use that until you have updated the Twitter plugin.

Best wishes Lorrie

Brankic1979

I saw your reply on that site…

Congrats…

If you find solution which uses only JSON resposnse (without PHP), please let me know…

If anyone decides to use the Jetpack Twitter Timeline widget, and wants to remove the horrible scroll bar, then check out this: http://arushad.org/how-to-remove-scroll-bar-and-limit-tweets-on-jetpack-twitter-timeline/

I found it was easier to download the php file and overwrite the original theme file. It works really well.

Try this Extra CSS (Brankic Panel)

is there a way to change the look of the arrows on the slideshow? http://sugarandtype.com/portfolio/thank-you/

I also want to make the width of the pictures larger, so there’s less space in between – is this possible?

Thank you

Brankic1979

Hi,

Arrows are in the file images/sprite.png, so you have to edit this file and upload it to the server.

If you want to change width – you should hire a freelancer with basic CSS knowledge… (It’s beyond our support)

Default-user

thanks! I have css knowledge just didn’t know which file!

Hello! I have two questions I hope you can help me with. You’ve previously stated in the FAQs that they can’t be done, but I wanted to make sure I hadn’t missed an update from you, since I feel they would be great for my site :)

1. Can you link/bookmark a specific portfolio filter? I’d love to be able to direct people to a specific part of my portfolio and even create submenus for them in my nav at the top.

2. When you hover over a particular portfolio item, to link to its page you have to point to either the name or the little ‘link’ icon in the lower righthand corner… is it possible to make the entire box/image clickable?

Thanks so much! Great looking theme!

Brankic1979

Hi,

1. Sorry, but this can’t be done out of box. Advanced jQuery knowledge is a must, and you should hire a frelancer if this option is important for you…

2. No. On hover you can’t have all area clicakable. Whole area can be clickable if you don’t choose hover (check portfolio shortcode options)
