i know everything you’re saying in the video. there is NO option in the pages drop down to choose “frontpage”, as your example, which is why i bought the theme. where is that feature?

vfxdude

you set the frontpage in the settings – reading (wordpress settings). More info here.

Yes, I’ve done all that.I’m wordpress savvy. I want my site to look like: http://www.vfxdude.com/bigfeature/example-pages/frontpage/ how do i do that?

How do I upgrade the theme? I went to install themes in WP and tried to install the latest version, but it tells me the folder already exists.

vfxdude

you can upload the files with ftp. if you use the wordpress uploader then you have to delete the current installation first.

Do I need to export my theme settings and then import them again after uploading the FTP files? i.e. will my theme settings be overwritten if I upload the updated files?

vfxdude

I updated the faq to include the export and save widget tasks when upgrading. see it here. If you upload with ftp you will not loose the theme settings, but back them up anyway.

Hi,

When adding a new blog post, the visual editor is just like the html editor. All other themes don’t seem to have this problem. I heard that the funtions.php file may need to be cleaned up in order to prevent this from happening. Is this correct? What is the best way to solve this problem?

Thank you, Donnie

vfxdude

this is probably caused by a plugin, since the visual editor works fine for me.

Would you know how to input a favicon for the blog? I tried putting it in the theme but it didn’t work.

Look forward to your reply. Thanks!

vfxdude

here’s instructions how to add a favicon.

Great site!

Is it possible to include videos within a lightbox element (like you do for the pictures across the site) instead of just including videos within a post?

Also is it possible to add a caption to lightbox photos?

Thanks! Calx

vfxdude

yes it is. see the video gallery section here. This theme is one of the free child themes that can be downloaded here (you need the bigfeature theme for it to work).

Is there any way of customizing the buttons=”style3” Slider I am looking to change the look of the 2 gray bars with white Arrows?

thanks for your help in advance.

vfxdude

yes it’s possible. use firebug to find what to change. you can also search for slider in style.css, where those styles are located, but I recommend to copy them into a child theme and modify them there.

Good morning, I downloaded the most recent upgrade to theme from my account here on Themforest. However, when I try to install it on Wordpress it fails saying the Stylesheet is missing. Can you please assist? Thank you

I would like to add the image slider (or a static banner image) to the homepage in additon to two rows beneath it with three thumbnails ( I believe the thumbnails reflect the posts) in each row. Can you please let me know how to do that? I am trying to do it by selecting the static page and making adjustments there, but that is not working. Please assist. Thank you!

vfxdude

this is explained in this video tutorial.

Hi There… have not been able to post in your forum so I’ll try here…

I need to create a page using the “blog posts” template that displays posts based on TWO criteria:

1) Category 2) Tag

I know that I can add the category “field” and the category “value” and get a page of posts by the category… that works. But I really need to add the 2nd parameter of the “Tag” value… so that only posts of the category AND tag values are displayed.

Is this possible?

Thanks so much…

Jeff

your forum post was caught in the spam filter. I unblocked it, and hopefully the spam filter learns (akismet). Here’s the answer.

Hello, I replaced the image you used on the frontpage2 page template, but when I do the text shifts to the right. I do not want this. How does I stop the text from shifting to the right under the text. Secondly, in your tutorial you say to set up a page and call it frontpage. I did that, but the text shows on the homepage of my site and I do not want it to show up. What do I do. My site I am working on is at www.dionevanslive.com/ojb

Thank you

Can you disable the homepage picture/slider all together to just reflect the blog on the front page?

vfxdude

to set the blog as the frontpage change the “Front page displays – Your latest posts ” in settings – reading.

I am having issues with my Theme Settings. The Navigation, Typography and colors sections are not accessible. Help!

vfxdude

you probably need to upgrade the theme, since this was a WP3 .1 compability issue.

Roger,

Any additional parameter for the next version like “author” (not values for orderby)?

[bfthumbs author=”author1” category=”category1” ...]

[bfslider author=”author2” name=”category2” type=”category” ...]

vfxdude

I will add this in the next version of the theme.

Cool.. Thx Roger

Any possible date for when the new release will come out – and support google webfonts? Come to think of it, disabling cufon and using google fonts plugins would work right?

vfxdude

probably april.

Hi!

I really like the theme! but how do i change the hover on the boxes with bgcolor navigation to rounded corners? I have the code:

-webkit-border-radius: 2em; -moz-border-radius: 2em; border-radius: 2em;

but i can’t find the file anywhere to change the css. Hope you can help me out! thx

Greetings, Arjan

add this to the bottom of style.css:

.navigation.navboxesbg > li > a { -webkit-border-radius: 2em; -moz-border-radius: 2em; border-radius: 2em; }

you probably need to upgrade the theme. There was some WP3 .1 compability issues fixed in the latest version of the theme (1.4.0.3).

Hello!

I downloaded your theme for my website (iesperanto.eu). I’ve a little problem. I would like to insert a banner (300×250) on my sidebar but it doesnt fit. I also tried to change the sidebar size trough your theme setting…but it is still the same (you can see just a small part of the banner). How I can do? Can you please help?

Thanks.

vfxdude

if changing the width of the sidebar in the theme settings doesn’t work, then you probably have installed the theme wrong. here is instructions how to install. The important thing is not to install the downloaded zip file, but unpack it and install the bigfeature.zip file.
