Hey there, this is a very nice looking theme and i was wondering if you could tell me how to make the content i type become like 2 different columns the way urs does here: http://labs.saurabh-sharma.com/themes/brandnew/wp/

Im reallly looking forward to buying it but my friends couldnt figure this out when he bought it so i must know how before i purchase it

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello JB,

The columns are created using the column short codes. For your reference, a dummy text file is available inside dummy data folder of your download. You just need to copy/paste it’s content into your home page.

P.S. I’d suggest you to look for some recent (and latest) theme, as this theme is old, and may not work properly on future versions of WordPress. :)

Regards

Hey thanks for the quick response, we figured it out thanks to you. One more thing we cant figure out is how to get images in the nivo slider. And if you could tell us how to do that also to add a caption

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

You will find instructions for creating slide images inside documentation file’s section 7. Configure Home Page Slider and Content.

P.S. Please post a comment from the account you purchased the theme, so that I can provide any support further. :)

Hi SaurabhSharma!

Great theme, though I have a problem with installing it – even though I add the custom field “sidebar” and set it to “none”, the sidebar still appears, but… in the header (top of the page), making the header really long. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello koobismo,

Can you mail me your site URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will look into it. :)

Hello SaurabhSharma,

Simple question. Do you know when your template will be compatible WordPress version 3.3.1? It is simply to know the approximate time.

Thank you

SaurabhSharma

Hello zonegraphique,

The theme is compatible with WP 3 .3.1. Let me know if you are getting any specific error. I will try to sort it.

Regards

Hello SaurabhSharma,

Mmm… I installed version 3.3.1 and submenu not functioning on the website. I tried to correct it in the dashboard, without success. I handed the old version of Wordpress. The site belongs to one of my clients, I want it to be functional.

This is the only error I saw, but I haven’t taken the time to look at everything. Here is the link for the Website : http://www.blog-montreal-immobilier.com/

Thanks again

Hello mate,

The theme version on your site seems to be 1.0. The latest one is compatible. Inside version 1.0, the issue was non-compatibility of jquery.easing.min.js file. On removing this script call from header.php, the JS effects will run normal as before.

Inside header.php, delete line no. 49:

<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/js/jquery.easing.min.js"></script>

P.S. I think you have already done that. The site seems to be working fine.

Regards

I have a problem to using this. When i uploading it to my host, then i getting error as: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/a2218976/public_html/index.php on line 6 & Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in /home/a2218976/public_html/index.php on line 9

Any Idèas?

SaurabhSharma

Hello simonfrisk,

make sure you unzip the folder first. Next, look for the folder named “brandnew”. Upload this to the wp-content/themes/ directory of your WordPress installation. Do not upload the zip download directly. You can find more details inside the documentation/index.html file of your download.

Hi There, Sorry if this has been asked before but how can I adjust the speed of the slider rotation? I’d like to slow it down.

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello Kemps,

For Nivo Slider, open js/nivo_init.js file and edit the following parameters:

animSpeed:400, // Slide transition speed
pauseTime:2000, // How long each slide will show

I hope that will help.

Hi!

I’m trying to use the homepage slider, but it does not seem to be fetching pictures from my category IDs. Do the pictures have to be a certain size, do the individual pictures need to have category IDs? I have the Reveal IDs plugin, but maybe the numbers I’m putting in are not the correct IDs.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Freestyle

SaurabhSharma

Hello Freestyle,

The slider uses Category IDs, which you would have already provided inside the theme options. If images do not show, it could be due to timthumb, or a missing image URL . That I can confirm only when I see the site URL . Kindly send me your site URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. If possible, send me the WP login so that I will fix if there is any issue with IDs.

Regards

Hey SaurabhSharma

Thanks for the great them by the way… I’ve been using it on our blog for 8 month now and is great. But

On our blog the comments box where you type in your name, email, website but when I click add comment it just says error enter your password. But there is no password to enter.

Our website is http://www.overcomemarketing.com

Do you know the reason for this error

Thank you

Danny

SaurabhSharma

Hello Danny,

That error doesn’t arise on default comment form. I’m not sure if you are using some plugin on comment forms; as I can see a “Receive blog updates” checkbox just below the form. If that is done using any plugin, try to disable the plugin and check the comments again. I hope it will work.

Regards

Hi SaurabhSharma

I’ve disabled “spam free WordPress plugin” and it seems to have done the trick…

It can be quite annoying when plugins don’t function properly with the theme.

Thanks anyway

Danny

SaurabhSharma

Hello Danny,

I’m glad it worked at your end.

Regarding the plugin, you can cross check if the same problem persist with the twentyten theme. As we are using the native WordPress comment form. No custom overriding is done. So the plugin should work normal as it does on other themes.

Hi! My “contact us” page is not working… http://www.tcmonline.com/our-company/contact-us-2. It was working fine but now all of a sudden it isn’t.

SaurabhSharma

Hello carynstewart,

I just checked the contact page with and without JavaScript. In both cases, the mail was sent successfully. Can you confirm by checking the mailbox whether you got these two dummy mails.

Also let me know if you are getting mail sending error, validation error, or any other thing.

is this theme compatible with 3.4.1??

SaurabhSharma

Hello Jbwebsitebuilder,

Thanks for browsing the theme. It still needs some updates for WP 3 .4. I feel bad in saying this but I would not recommend buying until I upgrade it. Sorry for inconvenience.

Hi there!

At first: Your brandnew-theme is a really cool peace of work. I hope i´m not too redundant – it´s just….

...i´d like to link from the nivo slider pictures (using fade) without captions to different URLs. I just cannot find out how to set a link or which custom variable i have to define or whathever… to do so. Can you please tell me how i could accomplish this?? would be a incredible help really thanx in advance best regards

boris

SaurabhSharma

Hello Boris,

Thanks for the purchase and kind words of feedback.

Currently, slides can be linked by using custom captions. For that, you can find relevant information inside your_download/documentation/index.html file’s section 7. Configure Home Page Slider and Content > How to use Nivo Slider > How to use Captions.

This feature will allow linking from captions. Linking from images is difficult because Nivo slider creates multiple slices during animation. These are a collection of various DIV blocks. So there is no particular image element to be linked. This is a limitation, but you still have option to link via captions.

Kindly let me know if you find any difficulty using captions.

Regards

BorisBan Purchased

thanx and thanx again

is there a easy fix to make something like a invisible caption spreading all over the slide (er. having the same size?)

a caption with opacity 0 size lets say 900×350

and no text in it (or just a  )

sorry to bother you, but it would be really important boris

SaurabhSharma

Hello Boris,

That can be done by modifying existing caption on Nivo Slider. Inside css/nivo-slider.css file:

.nivo-caption {... }

This can be modified as:

.nivo-caption { ... width:100%; height:290px; background:transparent; opacity:0; ... }

You can add or modify these styles to have a transparent caption of same dimensions as slide. Also, make sure you do not disable slide captions on individual posts.

Regards

This theme deserves an update. It has a clean and pleasant. To add information slides, Portfolio and column of the homepage should be by CPT .

SaurabhSharma

Hello fernandolopes,

I agree with you. The theme’s design is good, but the code is really outdated. The only way is to re-look and update entire code with new functions and coding. It may take time but worth giving a try.

Hello, enjoying the theme but the twitter widget is not working for me. It used to but when I updated the theme it stopped. Any ideas?

Hello coleelijah,

Kindly send me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you the fix. For reference, the Twitter API was updated recently. Due to that, widgets using old code stopped working. It’s a one line fix which I will send you. My apologies for inconvenience.

Hello, i too have a problem with the twitter widget, can you help me here or should I send an email?

Hello maniacstudio,

Kindly send me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you the fix.

Combat is a great theme.

I would like to purchase it for two more sites. My desire is for the three sites to have a consistent look with the dark colour scheme but be distinctive because they are individuals working in the same office but work separately. The differentations could be by changing the light grey colour (used for the menu, blog name and around the slider) and the background behind the slider the across each site.

How can this be achieved?

Thanks

Nerida

Hello Nerdia,

You can browse any latest theme you like. For example, you can choose from the newest releases, or from the popular files section.

Sorry, what I meant was, is there one of your other themes that you think is similar to Combat that you would recommend?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Nerdia,

Sorry, but none of my other themes matches the style of Combat theme. However, you can browse the themes and check live preview. May be you can find a theme closer to the desired style.

I’m trying to use the checkbox for Vimeo un the BrandNEW Options and it is not working. I’m not a specialist so maybe I’m missing something.

SaurabhSharma

Hello zekar,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Theme Options doesn’t have any Vimeo option. Kindly let me know which Vimeo checkbox you are referencing to.

zekar Purchased

If you enter under BRANDNEW Option, there is a section under Social Networking Links on Primary Nav Bar where you can find the Vimeo Option i’m talking about. Even when it is activated I cannot view a specific Vimeo button as I see when Facbook or Twitter are activated.

SaurabhSharma

Hello zekar,

Inside brandNew Options there are only three links – Twitter, facebook and RSS. It’s strange how a Vimeo link option is appearing there. Can you confirm which theme version you are using, and whether you got theme options customized by me or anyone else sometime ago?

Regards

zekar Purchased

It is version 1.4. It was never modified by me or you. It’s very strange.

SaurabhSharma

Hello zekar,

Kindly send me your WP login and URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check how that link came there.
