Hi there. Purchased the template – love it.

I have one question on the Contact Form. When I tried to send a test submission and pressed the “Send Email” button, I got this error in Internet Explorer:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in /home/leezahoyt/public_html/hoytnew/wp-content/themes/carbon/index.php on line 14

Then in Safari, Chrome and Firefox, I just got a blank page.

I have put my email in the Contact Page section of the “Theme Options” section already. Please advise. Am I missing something? This is the page in question: http://www.hoytorg.com/hoytnew/contact/

I would try the Contact Form 7 plugin instead. The next time I update the file I will fix it.

HEy there, I’d like to get rid of ‘description’ here and align all the paragraphs with the pictures. http://4-interior.james-veitch.com/services/

I’ve tried .margin_top_35, .mt35 { margin-top: 0px !important; } but doesn’t really help. The first one is still off and it’s still showing description. (the word description: i want the text beneath it)

Hi, Have problems displaying social icons on header, only on footer. I’ve put “both” in the option menu, but nothing appear. Any suggestions? thanks

brainbuzzmedia

Social icons only work in the footer with Carbon, this extra option was left in by accident on an older version of the theme. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi there,

I haven’t figured out how to set the duration of the sliders. Could you point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Default-user

Never mind – I figured out the slider issue. However, I tried for a longer pause time by editing php settings, and nothing happened. Sorry, I am just beginning to learn php.

brainbuzzmedia

There are settings right in the wordpress page when you add the slider :)

Default-user

Duh, found it.

Hello, How can I set the slider to start as autoplay so the user dont have to turn play to see the slides turning around? thanks

brainbuzzmedia

It does autoplay unless you turned manual advance on.

In the “Camera” page block make sure that ‘manual advance’ isn’t set to yes, and also check to see that the pause time isn’t really long.

You have made an update since my version, How do you update the theme on wordpress?

brainbuzzmedia

You can just overwrite the files through ftp or you can just upload the zip in wordpress again. Back up your own version, and upload your modified files after updating (like style.css etc). Just make sure you back it up.

Hi guys

Great theme, one of the best I ever bought.

I’ll have to repeat the question above because I want to make sure I understand how to do this: How do I upgrade from v1.5 to v1.7?

Will the pages, posts, etc be affected? If I only modified the theme from the admin menu, will that have to be redone? Please go in a bit more detail what you mean by backing up my own version, then upload the modified files? What are the modified files?

Thanks

brainbuzzmedia

Hi!

Ok, basically what upgrading the theme is, is just replacing all of the theme files with the files from the newer version. So if you have not modified anything, then that is all you need to do. However, if you have modified files, you would need to either:

a) not replace the files you’ve modified b) redo your modifications

Usually most modifications would be only to the style.css, in which case you could just not update that file. The best way to modify a theme while still being able to update it though is to create a child theme instead of changing the original files or to add all your css to change the theme to the very end of style.css, in which case you could just copy / paste it at the end of the new style.css

But if you have changed files like header.php or template files, you will need to either not update those or redo what you have changed.

Hi, my portfolio-medium page is displaying the full text. How do I get it to display just an excerpt or short description as in your example. I am stuck. Thanks.

brainbuzzmedia

Hey

Click the “more” button in the post editor to enter the more tag wherever you would like you post to be truncated when making each post.

How ‘bout that? Thanks.

Hi again, is there a way to show (or exclude) a particular category of blog posts from the blog page. I am using the medium blog for my projects/portfolio, but don’t want that category to show up on my regular blog.

Thanks a lot!

brainbuzzmedia

Yep! In Theme Options > Content Settings > Excluded Categories

Hello, I’m having problems to show galleries like your Demo site. Think the documentation is not enough. It says: I have included a version of this open source plugin which I have modified to always use the same image pop up script that this theme uses (prettyphoto).”

Ok. Where I find it?! Thanks!!

brainbuzzmedia

Hi, you no longer need an included version. It can be found here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery//

Hi there,

the “Show Phone & Email in Header” has been selected as yes, but the phone number and email were not reflected on the website. Please assist. Thanks

brainbuzzmedia

That option was not meant to be in Carbon, unfortunately it was left in from the previous theme’s options. There isn’t anywhere in the header for it to fit and I believe the option has been since removed from the theme options.

Hi Brainbuzz, Your Live Preview does not seem to be working.

I am trying to replicate your large portfolio example with the four small thumbnails underneath. If I try to make one of the smaller sizes a video, it only will display as a much larger size no matter what dimensions I put in the code. Is there a way to override that? Thanks!

brainbuzzmedia

My hosting for this theme’s demo is down at the moment. Can you give me a link to the website you’re working on?

Default-user

http://www.cedarcreekplanners.com/gordons-pond-project/ I was trying to line all the elements up under the main photo with the same height. The video keeps reverting to full size and the elements appear one on top of the others instead of lined up. It looks right on the page before I go live with the page. Thanks. You have thumbnails 110×85 with your portfolio examples.

brainbuzzmedia

In order to create the galleries on the portfolio you need to install the plugin Nextgen gallery, and then add an image gallery to the portfolio post.

Trying to: 1. Customize the color of the rollovers on main navigation to match my logo 2. make the rollover on the main navigation menu fill the whole header space as in the demo. I replaced the logo with my logo that has a different height… and now the rollover stops below the bottom.

Thanks!

Right now you are using the boxed version. Did you change it? I suggest getting the add-on firebug for firefox to see where margins/css are effecting your website.

Default-user

Sorry for all of this back and forth… yes, I switched it to boxed… just trying anything to get rid of the extra space (and you saw that just floated the nav even worse). I switched it back to full… so you can see the 20 pixels below the nav.

Default-user

Okay… nevermind. Figured it out with Firebug. thanks

Hello, I’m trying to get the NextGen Gallery to work. I add a gallery, and enter the short code but the gallery doesn’t show up on the page at all. I want it to show up on Portfolio section. In the Manage Gallery, I can’t choose a new page the drop down has no options other than “Main Page (No parent)”... so I select “Portfolio” from the drop down in the “Page link to” options… and still it doesn’t appear. What am I missing?? Thanks for any help you can offer. http://www.creativecontentpartners.com/kldesigns/portfolio/ S.
brainbuzzmedia

I’m not sure what you’re doing, but when you install nextgen gallery it has its own “Gallery” option area above “Theme Options”. You then just click “Manage Gallery” and “Add new+” and choose the images you want.

I have no idea where you are seeing a dropdown in manage gallery or Page link to, etc.

Also, from looking at your link, you are trying to put a gallery on the main portfolio page? That is the page that displays posts for your portfolio. You use the gallery inside the single portfolio pages to show extra images.

Hey there, I added some text to my logo and it’s perfect in everything except Internet Explorer. If you look there the menu is super high. Can you give me some CSS to bring it lower? also, the logo isn’t resizing properly in IE http://www.4-interior.co.uk/
brainbuzzmedia

Sure, try this:

div.logo a {margin-top:20px;}
