Is it possible to have the big image at the top of the home page static, instead of relying on the Rev slider?

WebLionMedia

Hi,

Try to use this code and change the image path:

<div class="block_home_slider_1"><div class="fullwidthbanner-container"><div id="slider" class="fullwidthbanner"><ul><li data-transition="fade" data-slotamount="7" data-masterspeed="300" style="visibility: hidden; left: 0px; top: 0px; z-index: 18; opacity: 1; position: absolute;">><img src="http://blackbird.weblionmedia.com/images/pic_slider_1_5_1.jpg" data-fullwidthcentering="on" alt="" /></li></ul></div></div><div class="line" /><script type="text/javascript">jQuery(function() { var slider = jQuery('#slider').revolution({ startwidth : 940, startheight : 386 }); }); </script></div>

I am also experiencing some problems with the home page.

1. How do I get the map to show?

2. How can I remove the gap for the Fax field? (we don’t use Fax)?

3. How can we get the “Send Message” button to look like in the demo?

4. How do I remove the “Page Title Section”? I have selected Hide on the page settings.

I’ve got some additional questions regarding the home page.

Link: http://bit.ly/14Xonzs

1. Is is possible to specify the category for the left/right recent blog posts? i.e I would like all recent blog posts feed into the left column, and recent posts from “Category A” feed into the right column. Is this possible?

2. The newsletter – Is it possible to get this working with MailChimp?

Thanks.

Hi,

Find the files that begin with word “header” in the folder ”/blackbird/functions/headers/” and delete this code:

<div class="form">
  <?php get_search_form(); ?>
</div>

testimonials issue is now working.

in a previous post from another person you mentioned a fix with if($blackbird_data[‘color_scheme’]) $classes[] = ‘theme_’.strtolower($blackbird_data[‘color_scheme’]); to solve the issue with the red colour been the default theme colour. this fix doesn’t work. please could you let me know when this will be solved.

WebLionMedia

Hi,

Set the header style under the left menu in admin panel, click on “Theme Options > Header Options” like in this screenshot http://d.pr/i/issV

The issue with the red colour has been fixed in our last update. You can download it form ThemeForest from your account under the “Downloads” section.

Can you please share how to make the “block content after” work correctly? You have an example on Home Page 11, and I found where it was commented out in the Page Metabox, but I can’t seem to make it appear on my homepage. Please advise. Thanks!

Hi. Do you mean this page: http://blackbird.weblionmedia.com/z-home/z-home-page-style-11/

The theme doesn’t work very well with gravity form on default configuration. some field label are not displaying.

WebLionMedia

Which is the exactly the plugin name and I will test with it. Thank you.

Default-user

Gravity form is the name of the plugin. i managed to get it fixed. just to share with other users. It appears your theme is setting a font size of 0 pixels on the list elements that contain the fields, adding the following to the theme custom stylesheet to override will fix the problem.

.gform_wrapper li { font-size: inherit; }

i installed the theme. and all it’s showing inside the theme setting field is “a”

All the settings value shows “a”

then I tried loading blackbird-XMLfile.xml. but the posts are not showing. do i need to load blackbirdServer.sql as well ?

WebLionMedia

Hi,

The settings inside the admin panel “Theme Options” are not inserted. You have to go to “Theme Options” and to set all settings, if you don’t need some settings and it is “a”, just delete it and let the input empty.

Hello, I can’t find a way to modify the header hight when scrolled.

WebLionMedia

Hello,

Here is one example (for header style 2).

Is need to make changes in 2 files.

1. In the “style.css” file from the main theme folder add these lines to the end of the file:

.alt_header_2 #header .section_bottom {height:56px; padding-top:30px; position:absolute; left:0px; right:0px; top:43px; background:url(images/bg_header_2.gif) repeat-x left bottom #ffffff; z-index:99;}
.alt_header_2 #logo {padding-top:3px; float:left; margin-top:-20px;}

2) In the ”/js/main.js” file change these lines:

var padding_alt_2 = 13;
var height_alt_2 = 41;
var padding_alt_2 = 20;
var height_alt_2 = 55;

Sold on the demo / live preview of this theme and am testing out for a Fortune 500 company. I’d appreciate the opportunity to work with you on developing fixes for a few issues.

I’ve briefly read through the 2 pages of comments and realize it’s still very early for working out user-generated kinks.

I’ve worked on more than 300+ sites and have deep experience with Wordpress. Of course each theme has its own special author-generated issues and user-learning curve issues….

Started to build today. Appreciate if you have some time over the next 48 hours to help respond. Excited to start developing. :)

Hi, I’m online now and will respond to all questions in 24 – 48 hours. Thank you for your patience. Best regards, Weblionmedia.

1.- The main menu doesn’t look right, I don’t know what’s wrong, I’ve tried changing the header style and it looks the same on every style.

2.- I also want to change the color of the email address in the contact info widget. How can I do it?

3.- How can I change the height of the header?

4.- The SEND button on the contact form widget on the footer has a huge top padding and can’t see what it says, how can I change that?

Hey there,

Couple things that need fixing:

1) why does wordpress toolbar not appear in the theme? My only guess based on some research is the possible “forced” integration of one of the plugins (can’t be disabled on my end). Any fix? Anyone else experience?

2) Bulleted lists do not appear!!!

forces text to be blank. Need fix for that. Something in CSS?

Working on fixes for other things, but hopefully will work out kinks.

Thanks in advance for help.

WebLionMedia

Hi,

1) Open the “functions.php” file and remove this line (line number 20):

add_filter( 'show_admin_bar', '__return_false' );

2) This is the shortcode for bulleted list:

Hi,

how to apply it in service column? as in below?

WebLionMedia

Hi,

Make one little change in the “service” shortcode in the ”/blackbird/functions/shortcodes.php” file.

Find this code:

if($content):
    $str .= '<p>'.$content.'</p>';
endif;

and change it with this one:

$str .= '<p>'.do_shortcode($cont).'</p>';

Now use the shortcode, one example:

[services type="1"]
[service type="1" title="Creative & Clean Design" iconurl="http://blackbird.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/icon_services_1_1.png" content="" url="http://blackbird.com/"][checklist type="4" title="Bullet List"]

Done, thank you! Now a further request (the last one, I hope): in the search results page, there’s no margin between the “read more” button of a result and the title of the following result. That’s not nice from the graphical point of view, then I’d like to set a certain separation in pixels: can you guide me to this point? Thank you again.

Hi, at the moment the website on which I’m working (http://www.massimopicozzi.it) is hidden by an under construction page. I guess it will be visible after this weekend. Anyway, I’ve seen that your online demo site returns the same “defect”, then, maybe, you could check that. Please let me know, thanks.

Hi, waiting for the answer to my question above, here you are another one: in my blog page I set the “Blog Style 3” option, but only the Style 1 is shown. Just for testing, I tried to set also the “Blog Style 2” and the “Blog With Dual Sidebar” options, but… no way, the Style 1 is the only layout applied to the front-end. Please let me have your reply on this issue too. Thanks.

WebLionMedia

OMG what mistake with the search. Thank you for letting me know. I have fixed this issue and have uploaded new version to ThemeForest. It is on queue for review. It is a weekend now and I think that will be reviewed on Monday. So you can download only the fixed file, unzip and upload to your server, to main theme folder: http://blackbird.weblionmedia.com/search.zip

About the Blog style. You have this problem when you want to use this page as front page or simple page. Please give me more details. Thank you.

Best regards, Weblionmedia

Default-user

(1) Thank you for the new search.php file. It’s better than the previous one but, unfortunately, not perfect yet: if any results are available, it works fine now, but if no results are available, you get a blank page instead of a “No results” message. I wish you are going to publish a final and complete version of this file very soon… ;-) (2) Concerning the blog style issue, I just can tell you that I’m using it for one of the web pages in the main menu (not the front one). In the page options I set “Blog Style 3”, but the setting seems to be ignored (the Blog Style 1 takes its place). What am I doing wrong? (3) Additional and last issue: the category post filtering in the blog sidebar is not working. All my posts are actually associated to one or more categories, but when I click on a specific category in the sidebar widget I just get a totally blank page instead of the list of the posts associated to that category. I thought this could be due to a conflict with a third party plugin, but it seems this is not the reason. Thank you again in advance for your kind and prompt reply.

Default-user

Sorry, but there’s a fourth important question: it’s regarding the [latest_posts] shortcode. I must use it not once but three times in the homepage to show three different post categories. I mean: shortcode 1 for post category 1, shortcode 2 for post category 2 and shortcode 3 for post category 3. Is this allowed by the theme? If yes, what attribute should I include in the shortcodes? If not, how could I get this function? Thank you so much!

WebLionMedia

Hi,

1) Make one replace in the “search.php” file. Find lines 162, 163:

<?php endwhile;
endif; ?>

and replace with this code:

<?php endwhile; 
    else :
        echo '<h2>'.__('Nothing Found','blackbird').'</h2>';
        echo '<p>'.__( 'Sorry, but nothing matched your search criteria. Please try again with some different keywords.', 'blackbird' ).'</p>';
endif; ?>

2,3,4) For other questions please, write me using the contact form in my profile. There we could take a look to this closer, I will help you with this! I need to check and to test directly on your site and to make some changes.

Hello friend-

I need help with two areas today/this weekend if possible.

1) Need placeholder image into my header/logo but the logo seems to be hidden behind the menu system rather than the area adjusting to the logo width/height in theme options.

http://smci.co/

Able to help me figure out if its style.css or functions file that needs to be changed?

2) I choose the theme header with the phone number and email underneath the social buttons, but they don’t populate. Yes, I choos e the right one in theme framework and I completed: Header Phone Number and Header Email Address.

Appreciate the help!

WebLionMedia

Hello,

Make one change in the main css file “style.css”.

Find this code:

#header .section_top {height:98px;}
#header .section_bottom {height:48px; position:absolute; left:0px; right:0px; top:98px; background:url(images/bg_header_1.jpg) repeat-x; z-index:99;}

And replace it with this one (see the difference for height and top parameters):

#header .section_top {height:198px;}
#header .section_bottom {height:148px; position:absolute; left:0px; right:0px; top:198px; background:url(images/bg_header_1.jpg) repeat-x; z-index:99;}

Because the logo have the width 834px, the details like phone number and email address have no space to be inline. Please change the css described above and you will see the where are displayed details.

Trick to get the footer to line up into the section below the footer area is to load a plugin. Some of this could just be a caching issue. I’ll check back in an hour. I just deactivated my social share plugin and I’m pretty sure, in Chrome anyway, the copyright line falls on top of the footer between white and grey areas. Could just be a mac thing.

Hello,

Do you mean, when you click on the image then is opened in the page not with lightbox? Like this works the WordPress gallery shortcode. You have make a research and to find some plugins that install lightbox and interact with the WordPress gallery shortcode.

For example this one: http://wordpress.org/plugins/lightbox-gallery/

Try find more, by search with this combination of words on Google: “wordpress gallery lightbox”.
