Considering buying this theme, but have one question….is there any way to keep the menu bar static at the top while the rest of the page scrolls so that you don’t have to scroll back up to the top to access the menu? Thanks!

Hello,

This feature is not implemented into the theme, I may add this feature on a future update, but no plans just yet, due to my current workload.

This could be achieved by adding some Custom JavaScript into your site, if you purchase post an issue on the support forums and I’ll play with it and see how it goes.

Hello,

is there a possibility to integrate captcha to existing contact form?

Thank you, Tomislav

p.s. great work indeed

der

Hello,

Thanks for your kind compliments, much appreciated!

The Form Builder doesn’t have captcha integration due to the way it has been implemented (it aims to be a basic contact form solution).

To get contact forms with captcha functionality, I believe you can get a specialized contact form plugin solution, such as the Contact Form 7 Plugin, or the Gravity forms plugin.

Any other issue please do not hesitate to let me know on the Support Forums, I’ll be more than happy to help.

Kind Regards,
Ernie.-

Hey Ernie!

Thanks a lot for your response! As it’s free it’ll be Contact Form 7 :)

Keep up your great work! I’ll be watching your work and hope to buy more of your themes.

Hello. I am quite pleased with the Blocked theme, but have encountered a problem. I can’t set a static home page. Doing so with theme personalization or settings>read just reverts back from static to last posts. I have tried disabling plugins, but it wasn’t it. When I switch from Blocked to Wordpress basic template’s everything is fine, so I’m trying to find out, what part of the theme is causing this problem. I will be thankful for help.

Hello echemik,

The theme uses the Layout Editor to handle the Homepage. You can assign a Layout to your homepage by going to Theme Options ? Layouts, and choosing a Layout from the Homepage dropdown menu.

This is not a bug, the theme internally does this to be able to assign a layout to the homepage.

For more details on this behavior and this specific situation, you can refer to this discussion on the Support Forums.

Regards

I just purchased the theme and there are no default layouts setup already within the layout section. I DO NOT want to build an entire homepage, etc….that is the whole purpose of buying a wordpress theme. How do I get the setup features already present in the demo so I can just choose which ones to use??

der

On the ZIP you downloaded from ThemeForest, open the Sample Content/ directory, follow steps 10 and 11 from the README.txt file to get all layouts.

Make sure you at least briefly look at the theme’s documentation to learn to use the features it provides.

Any other questions please post them on the Support Forums.

Yes, I have it now. Thanks. Do we have to use the permalinks info you recommended?

der

It’s good if you want to have nice links on your site (for SEO purposes). Otherwise WordPress defaults to shortlinks, like yoursite.com?p=1 which is not SEO friendly.

I’d want the date included with the title of the post WITH it’s title. Would this option do that for me? I believe just the category is missing

/2014/02/15/sample-post/

der

I believe this is one of the options from the permalinks, you can choose the one that fits more. For more info you can check out the Using Permalinks section of the WordPress codex.

I’m using 940 × 358 dimensions for the header image on the homepage but the image doesn’t go all the way across the page like it does on the demo website. What are the correct dimensions to use?

Default-user

this has been figured out

Within the layout editor there are several components listed. I am trying to edit the quote along with other components. I’m able to edit them but they do not appear on the website. Please explain why this is happening and how this works.

I’m not referring to the ‘icon posts’....it’s the ‘Make It Yours’ copy that does not have an image featured next to it…

der

You need to assign the layout you’re editing to the page or section you are working with. Basic workflow is: Create Layout => Assign Layout.

You can assign layouts to several areas of your site, you can do that on Theme Options > Layouts.

Reading the Layout Editor documentation will definitely help you get a better understanding. There is also a full tutorial video that you can watch to learn how to use the Layout Editor.

If you change stuff and it doesn’t reflect, it’s because the layout is not assigned.

One other question, the larger banner board on the homepage..I’ve linked in URLS to each image but they aren’t clickable. How do I make the actual image clickable (and not just the copy that is beneath it)?

I did buy your Blocked thene back in August 2012. Since then, you removed and published this theme again on TF, but now I can’t update it anymore. I tried to explain the situation sending you an email message, but I’ve got no reply. Is there any chance to become one of your registered users back again, so to have access to the updated versions of your Blocked theme? Thanks.

Hello @nightjar,

Sorry to hear that, and apologies, I may have missed your message.

Back then, the theme was just reinstated, it was not released under a different product per se, it’s actually the same product you purchased, so your purchase should still be valid.

If the system doesn’t show you as a buyer, then this may be something regarding ThemeForest itself. Or maybe you have purchased using another account.

In any case you should contact Envato Support and let them know of the situation so they can help you out. There’s nothing I can do to help, as this is an issue that must be handled by the marketplace support team.

Once you do, if you have any problems registering please feel free to let me know, I’ll be happy to help.

Regards

I purchased this theme a while back. Trying to make a few simple textual edits to my layout, but none of the “Edit Component Options” buttons are working in my layout editor. Nothing happens at all, as if they are not buttons. I am unable to make any changes.

I am using version 1.0.8. Don’t know if that’s the issue, but I’m not sure how to update the theme.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello @mhovitch,

Sorry to hear about that. That’s quite an old version and many things have been fixed since then. Current Blocked version is at 1.1.3 and it’s quite stable.

To get the issue fixed, you can download the latest version of the theme and install it on your server. It should work once again. If not, please provide me with temporary admin access to your site by sending me a private message on the Support Forums.

Check out the forums’ FAQ if you need help updating the theme to your latest version, there’s an entry with all the details.

Hey Guys! I am considering buying the theme but I have some questions: 1. Can I add a favicon? 2. Can I add a widget in the header section or, better on the actual slider? I am trying to build my real estate site and would like to add a search widget on the slider. 3. Can I add a call to action widget on the head section?

der
der Author

Hello,

1. Yes, you can add a favicon from the theme’s options interface.

2. No, header does not allows that, you are able to place any content including widgets on the place of the actual slider by using the Layout Editor, not inside the slider itself, but where the slider is located.

3. I assume by head you mean header, in that case the header does not have a widgetized area so I believe this is not possible unless you customize the theme to do it yourself.

Regards

Hi, I have two presale questions.

I watched your page builder video, but I just want to verify that I can layout a widgetized sidebar sitting next to a slider that is only 1/3 or 3/4 width rather than full width. In other words, a slider does not have to sit only in a full width column. Is this correct?

Is it possible to move the menu from the top position to below the slider? Sometimes navigation above a slider does not test well.

Thank you!

der
der Author

Hello,

Yes, you can do the Slider/Widgets thing with Blocked’s Layout Editor.

Moving the menu from the top position to below the slider is not something the theme can do. You may need some customization for this.

Regards

I am trying to figure out how to change the font color on the menu. I have tried adjusting under the colors section but I can’t seem to find where to change it. Is there something I am missing?

der
der Author

Hello,

You can make this change by adding the following code into Theme Options ? Advanced, Custom CSS field:

#header ul.navigation > li > a {
  color: green;
}

Adjust the color as you see fit. Any other issues you can post them on the Support Forums, you’ll get the help you need there.

Hello

I was just wondering how I would make a coloured background for one particular section (on the layout editor) to override the general background?

Many thanks

Hello Dean,

Just so you didn’t go empty handed from this request, I tried without any luck for almost 15 minutes to get something decent but I hit a wall. Blocked wasn’t designed/implemented with this in mind.

The reason for this is that sections have the .container class applied to them, which doens’t allow them to span the whole width of the screen, which is needed to display the background.

This is why full width section backgrounds aren’t possible within blocked. A full rewrite may be needed to get this working.

Sorry to dissappopint in that regard.

I am on the very final stages of development of my upcoming theme, which has a very elegant way of doing what you’re trying to achieve.

If you’re interested you can follow me here on ThemeForest to be notified when the new theme is out. I am almost certain you may love it…

Thanks very much for your reply – i’ve found a work around (using a slider) . One other question – how do you remove the separators between the different sections? Many thanks!!

Hello,

I've noticed that it takes a long time for the website to load when viewing on a mobile device. There is only one large graphic on the page that has been optimized and it still takes 10 seconds or more for the page to load. Any recommendations on this and is there a feature in the theme I'm not utilizing that can help with this?

Thanks

Hello @missjenelledc,

This may be related to a network issue, not really a theme issue (unless otherwise proven). I’ve seen this happen many times and it’s usually the phone’s service provider that is slow, or the server is slow, or the slider images are huge.

If you are willing to inspect this situation further, please post all details in the Support Forums, and we’ll take it from there.

Hi, I would like to purchase the following wordpress theme: http://themeforest.net/item/blocked-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/2753893

If it does not require customizing the theme to integrate, then yes. Otherwise the plugin may need some customization or modification in order for it to work.

I need to edit the header navigation for the theme. What I mean is that I need to manually edit the url for an item in the navigation. What php file in the theme does this refer to?

der
der Author

Hello Jenelle,

The navigation menus are rendered using the WordPress Menu Manager, this means there are no PHP files to edit. Go to Appearance ? Menus and you can edit the menu URLs there.

If this is not what you want, please refer to the Support Forums and explain in detail what you need.

P.S: Please, post any further questions you may have on the forums, comments are best for presale questions. Thanks for understanding!

Hi,

gallery stopped working with WordPress 4. Please could you fix it ASAP.

Ty, Tomislav

edit: seems like Optimize Images Resizing plugin caused the problem.

der
der Author

Hello @tomislavboric,

Just checked it out and the Gallery Manager is working fine. Noticed something I didn’t catch when testing against 4.0, but these are minor admin interface style fixes.

An update will be released soon to address these little admin styling details (which are nothing that may interfere with the theme’s functionality).

The same image resizing script is used on our other themes and even in the upcoming one (to be released soon) and it’s working just fine.

Anything you can let us know on the Support Forums and we’ll be happy to help with any issues you have.
