I would like to have multiple videos on different homepage slides. So I would need your help in that case.

What kind of video sources does the theme support? It is only embeds from Vimeo or Youtube or can it play quicktime or flash videos?

ProgressionStudios

The slider is able to handle just about any type of flash video(as long as it has a player) along with the usual YouTube, Vimeo, etc. Send me an e-mail and I can send you a brief description on how to add multiple video slides plus an example. It’s pretty simple, just requires a work-around.

Hi, Great theme. I’ve got the height set to 600px and the images are 600px but the top and bottom are getting chopped off. Can you tell me with a height of 600px what size the images should be horizontal and vertical please?

ProgressionStudios

E-mail me a link to your site and I’ll check it out. The images should be getting cropped at 980 width x 600 height if you have the site height set to 600 pixels.

For example the first slide in the Live Preview that is 600 pixels tall isn’t getting cropped at all since it is already 980×600.

Hey there, Does this allow you to embed full size video in the sliders on the home page?

i’ve been paying attention to this one for the last week, we’ll see if we use it.. it’s really interesting, very flash-esque.

ProgressionStudios

Yeah, you can embed the full-size video on the home-page. Glad you are interested. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hello I wonder if you can put this theme music?

Waiting for response …

ProgressionStudios

There is no audio player built into the theme. You can add plugins to the theme if you wish like an audio player, although it would be up to you to find the plugin you needed. Check out wordpress.org or codecanyon for some great wordpress plugins to achieve this.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Great theme.

Just curious, but are the “MQ Architects” psd files available anywhere?

Thanks Ryan

ProgressionStudios

The PSD files are the same for ‘MQ Architects’ and ‘The Space’. The file included is what was used to build both sites. Unfortunately, I didn’t build two sets of PSDs for both.

I think this is one of the best looking themes I have come across on themeforest, so much so I have scrapped the design for my own personal site just to use it!

I have a few questions and suggestions for you Michael,

1). I wish to have a blog page, but I cannot seem to create one other than making the front page a blog page. It would be really useful if in a future version of the theme users had the ability to create a blog page, and specify which categories to include and exclude from the blog.

2). When I change a page template to home, the theme does not appear correctly. I have a lot of text and it seems to appear outside the container and also push to background to the bottom of the browser.

3). In the next update could you add a google +1 function

4). I noticed that when I used the theme it it’s default state, my internal pages all had grey text which made it impossible to read with the grey background.

Thanks for the video tutorials, haven’t gotten round to watching all of them but they’ve been very helpful so far!

edit: I just saw the video showing us to use a category on the custom menu, so I have now been able to create a blog.

ProgressionStudios

Feel free to send me an e-mail next time since that works better for long-form questions. Also, yes to all of your questions except 3 :-).

1) This is in the documentation. See video “Create your Home-page and Blog” or the text documentation “WordPress Blog and Portfolio”.

2) You can use the default page template instead of the home-page template. That will allow you to have a scroll-bar. The ‘home-page’ template is the only template without a scroll-bar.

3) You can add a plugin for this functionality. See wordpress.org.

4) You can change the text color using the page options easily to solve this.

Feel free to e-mail me if you have any other questions,

Is there a way to have a semitransparent image for the logo background, or the content image? I’ve tried .png files but they don’t seem to work. The transparency gets dropped. Am I doing something wrong?

ProgressionStudios
Yeah, by default the logo or content area’s have a background color. So adding the transparent png works, but it will retain the original background color. All you need to do is add this custom CSS that sets the container as transparent like this:
.logo-menu {background: transparent !important;}  

Feel free to e-mail me if you have trouble adding this.

What about the content image? What is the class for that?

Go ahead and send me an e-mail. It’s too difficult typing code into these Item Comments and having a back/forth discussion.

Hallo sorry my English is bad, i come from german.

Give us a chance to change the color of the menu and the Copyright footer to black?

ProgressionStudios

The Menu background color can be changed via a color-picker in the options panel (Appearance Tab – Menu Background). Please see both written and video documentation if you are confused on this.

Copyright Footer:
The copyright footer doesn’t have a background, but you can easily add one if you wish. All you would need to do is add a color of your choice via some Custom CSS like so:
#footer {background:#000000 !important;}

Feel free to E-mail me if you are still having trouble with this.

Sure my Color is Changed in Green but the “MENU” font Color is white:

I have created a full video page just like you referenced in the documentation… On chrome and IE the menu and logo are below the video..so no access to menu..on firefox sometimes the menu and logo are above…I cannot seem to find any wmode code to fix this.

ProgressionStudios
Yes, that is a common issue with youtube videos. Not Theme Related. You can do a few things to solve this:
1. Use this embed code for youtube videos:
<object data="http://www.youtube.com/v/wrvaPi7omg8?version=3&amp;hl=en_US1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" style="width:980px;height:500px"> 
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" /> 
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/wrvaPi7omg8?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" /> 
</object>

2. See this forum post in regards to the iframe embed code which refers to the use of “&wmode=opaque”.

3. The key is the wmode opaque value.

I tested the first group of code to make sure its works. It even uses the video you wanted to embed ;-).

I noticed that all the screenshots/live preview show that the theme loads with the menu bar closed. Can it be configured to load with menu bar already open when loading the page?

ProgressionStudios

Yeah, you also have option to always have the menu bar always visible. You can set this by a simple check-box in the options panels :-).

i have one problem with the content background – i entered a link to the default-background (XXX/wp-content/themes/Broadside/images/backgrounds/blog-background.jpg) and the site is still white … no background – but if i open the background url in the browser it shows me the pic!

whats up there?

ProgressionStudios

E-mail me, making sure to include a link to the site, and I’ll help you sort out the problem. It’s most likely an issue with the TimThumb image resizer. Don’t worry though, it’s easy to sort out.

I like to use Widgets, is this possible?

ProgressionStudios

The theme doesn’t have widgets enabled. This is because there isn’t any spot for widgets. If you would like to enable widgets, it takes about 5 minutes and I can send you directions. Feel free to send me an e-mail.

Hi, lovely theme.

Is it possible to change the size of the thumbnails? I’m creating a clothing store and the thumbnails need to be higher than they are wide.

Please let me know asap as I am looking to start this project.

Thank you.

ProgressionStudios

I assume you mean the thumbnails of the Portfolio Scrolling? It would require you to edit that page-template and then customize the CSS . That would be up to you and your level of abilities. I am also available for freelance if you wanted to go that route as well.

I mean this page – http://broadside.progressionstudios.com/portfolio-thumbnails/

Basically I don’t want square thumbnails but rectangular ones…

Thanks for the quick reply.

ProgressionStudios

Yeah that should actually be simple to adjust in that specific page-template. There is no built-in option for this but it should still be easy to adjust with some minor file tweaking.

Go ahead and e-mail me for any further discussion (Contact form is on my Profile page).

this is a lovely wordpress theme! i’m interested in purchasing it, but do have a question before.

instead of having to mouseover to expand the navigation, i would like to have the navigation menu expanded by default. is this possible?

thanks!

Yeah, you have the option to have the menu bar always visible. You can set this by a simple check-box in the options panels :-).

Hey there! I am using the scrolling portfolio option, and the white arrows are the same color as my background. How can I change them?

ProgressionStudios

Those portfolio navigation arrows are built using an image. You can adjust the image located in the ‘images’ folder named “arrow-navigation.png”. Either swap out the image or adjust the color from white to your color of choice.

Looks like we’re going to be using this & downloading it soon for a site project. Question; does this use Cufon? How do we change / customize the default header fonts for the h# text & the menu?

thanks! ~s

ProgressionStudios

Nope, it uses @font-face CSS as it is a much better solution and makes it easy to modify. Changing the font is just a matter of changing the font-family call from the default ‘BebasNeueRegular’ to whichever you choose. At the top of the “standard.css” file you can see all of the heading sizes and font-families being declared. It’s all pretty easy to modify.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

i keep getting this issue

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /nfs/c03/h05/mnt/56924/domains/223post.com/html/wp-content/themes/Broadside/framework/metaboxes.php on line 5

ProgressionStudios

Sounds like a bad installation of the theme. I’ve only had two reported cases like this and they were both solved by these simple two solutions below.

- Make sure to up-date WordPress so you are using the latest version.
- Then try re-uploading the theme files.

Send me an e-mail and I’ll help trouble-shoot if none of those above work.

i’m getting this issue now.

An updated version of WordPress is available.

You cannot update because WordPress 3.2.1 requires PHP version 5.2.4 or higher. You are running version 4.4.9.

While your site is being updated, it will be in maintenance mode. As soon as your updates are complete, your site will return to normal.

ProgressionStudios

Yeah, send me an e-mail and I can explain more about what you can do. You will need PHP5 to run WordPress 3.2. http://wordpress.org/news/2011/07/are-you-ready-for-wordpress-3-2/

Note: This is very rare as 99% of hosting providers are running on PHP5 . This is why WordPress has upgraded the minimum requirements to PHP5 .

Hi,

I’m getting some trouble with the background images not showing up. http://reddingdrafter.com

ProgressionStudios

If the background images aren’t showing up, the TimThumb image resizer is being blocked. Don’t worry though because 99% of the time it’s easy to sort out with this one easy step.

You just need to login to your server via FTP and update your folder permissions to 777.
- This just involves right-clicking on your folder and getting information. Then changing the Ownership and Permissions. It is most likely set to 755, which you will update it to 777 and then click “Apply”.

1. The folders you need to update are located here:
/wp-content/themes/Broadside/cache

Once updating the “cache” folder, check and see if that works. If that still doesn’t work, then try updating the folder permissions of this folder as well:
/wp-content/themes/Broadside

If you are unsure how to do this, I would be more than happy to jump in and do this for you. Or if that for some reason doesn’t work out, then send me an e-mail.

Default-user

Hi, I set the permissions as you said, first for the cache folder, then for the Broadside folder, but it still isn’t working. I can pull the images up directly (i.e. http://reddingdrafter.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/energy-title-241.jpg) But this link is pasted into the Background Image(s) for the page: http://reddingdrafter.com/title-24-energy-calculations/ and it’s still not working.

Any other suggestions?

ProgressionStudios

Send me an e-mail. I will help you sort this out asap.

Default-user

Also, I noticed it’s not even loading the default background image set in the theme options.

Default-user

I had to contact the hosting company to get this one resolved… but ProgressionStudios had great response time and tried to get it fixed right away. Thank you and nice theme.

ProgressionStudios

Yep, we got it sorted out. It was the hosting provider blocking the script. Feel free to contact me buyers if you run into any issues with the background images not loading. I can help you troubleshoot the issue quickly.
