Yes, in Appearance > Menus, just choose to add a custom link with the name being PROJECTS and the url being #.

Hi, i just purchased the Carbon theme and i got it specially for the portfolio pages and posts layout.

However when testing the theme on a new instalaltion, and after importing the demo content the portfolio posts do not have same layout as the demo here, but like a simple blog post.

Please advice how to make portfolio posts look like the orifinal demo.

brainbuzzmedia

In Theme Options > Content Settings you want to set the post categories to be displayed as portfolio items rather than regular blog items and then those will appear like the portfolio.

Hello, How do you delimit how many lines are displayed before showing the learn more botton? Because I see in my web page all the text from the post and I want to have like in the demo, only a few lines… thanx

brainbuzzmedia

You just want to click the “more” button in the wordpress editor where you want to cut off the post, of use an excerpt.

Is there any way to have your blog but to only display certain categories? not all the posts??

brainbuzzmedia

Yep, in Theme Options > Content Settings there is a field for “Excluded Categories”.

Hi,

I just downloaded your theme and I am trying to set the portfolio page as the portfolio-filterable template. But for some reason, the filter animation isn’t working. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

brainbuzzmedia

Sure, can i see the url?

brainbuzzmedia

I’m sorry but I can’t see the page, it requires a login for access.

Hello, I just installed Cart66 Pro plugin and realized it’s not working with Carbon theme and works with all other themes I have.

When I click “add to cart” button nothing happens. I’ve read somewhere that it’s probably because of Jquery conflict. Could you please tell me what could I try change in the theme files to make it work?

Thanks, Tim

...this message is part 2 of my first message.

Inside one of the theme’s folders I found file “functions.admin.php”, which has this line:

$data = get_option(OPTIONS); If I remove it cart66 ajax starts working properly, but theme’s options resets which breaks website’s layout.

What can I do to avoid the conflict and make it work properly?

Hi,

I just purchased your Theme and wanted to add a list. However I can’t find the shortcode commands. In the documentation a not working link is provided and in the example page one can only see how the lists look like, but not what their commands are.

Hi, so I’m doing alright with the theme so far, still working it all as with anything but the main thing I want to know is – if I want to set a featured image so it appears on the homepage, but I don’t want the featured image to appear in the post itself automatically – how do I stop it doing that? Thanks

brainbuzzmedia

Hmm, there isn’t an option to hide the featured image on the blog single post page. You would need to edit the file ‘includes/wordpress.php’ to remove it. You don’t ever want it to show or just on some pages?

Default-user

I just want the images to show on the homepage without showing in the posts themselves, as I carefully manually put together my blog posts. You can see what I mean at sophieontrack.com – I’ve looked through some of the comments here and had a look at what others have done with the theme – so I know I can get mine to look as great as some of theirs. Eventually I want to create a destinations page and have posts organised by place.

brainbuzzmedia

Ah I see. Ok, try this.. Open the file “includes/wordpress.php” and Ctrl+F for this code in the “SINGLE POST” section and remove it:

<div class="no_overflow"> <img class="mb0" src="<?php echo $post_thumbnail; ?>" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" /> </div>

Hi,

I’m hoping you can advise where I can find detailed notes for using this plugin.

I looked all though the zip folder and couldn’t find them anywhere….

I’m trying to figure out a few things before I post a question here….

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 1-2 years

Ok, still can’t find the notes, so here goes:

1) I use the Nextgen Image Gallery plugin (V2.0) based on your recommendation in an earlier post in this thread, and I have set up the galleries that I create to appear in POSTS (not pages).

I then have the parent page that all of those post pages are attached to, set as an exclude in the “Excluded Categories” in the content setting theme options.

While the posts do not appear in the page that I have setup as my main blog page, each image in the image gallery from Nextgen DOES appear in that main blog page. How can I fix this so that these images DO NOT appear in that blog – I have tried everything I can think of….

2) Each blog page that I create is being show in the home page main content box (which is what I want), but I cannot determine the length of each blog that appears in that home page – they also do not have a ”.... read more” option/link to take a user to that specific blog post.

How can I do that?

3) I want to add a “Contact Us” hyperlink in the footer. Whenever I add an to the footer text in footer.php, the text disappears – so I assume that it’s just being set to black text or something like that. How can I fix this?

Great theme – props to the creator!

Thanks for any help!

Default-user

UPDATE – I have worked out #1! So please disregard!

But, still need help with #2 & #3!

Default-user

Figured out 2 & 3, but now I need to know – how do I change the color of the text in the slider and if / how can I re-position the location of the text?

Some of the images I am using need it to be pushed more to the left or right….

Lastly, how can I set the background color of the slider text to transparent? As whenever I try to set it to “none”, the entire length of the slider changes when in either “default”, “rectangle” mode with the background setting to “off”....

Hi there,

Is it possible to wrap multiple objects around the ‘Wordpress content’? So for example I have a table which is say 400px in height, left aligned, but I want to small boxes which float to the right of it?

When I try and do this in the template builder on the page, the first boxes floats to the right fine, but the second one appears under the “Wordpress content” area which has the table.

Thanks

brainbuzzmedia

No, this isn’t how it works. It is already wrapped and floated in a div. You should just use the page builder and add other blocks next to it if that’s how you want it to display, or put the tables inside the actual wordpress editor.

Default-user

Thanks for the response, but I think that’s what I’ve already done. The table I’ve created is inside the actual WordPress editor. The small box to the side which is 1/3 sits nicely to the right, but is about 1/3 of the main content height. I now want to place another small box to the right of the main content which will sit under the other small box. When I add a second custom box, it automatically just goes underneath the main content (which contains the table). Does that make any sense?

brainbuzzmedia

I can’t understand what you are talking about. What is a “small box” in this situation? Is it a page builder block of some style, custom? sized to 1/3? Is it some other thing you’ve added?

I would suggest getting Firebug for Firefox and looking at the css to see what the problem is.

Default-user

The link below shows the layout I want, forget everything I’ve said above and please just let me know how to create it. (I don’t want to use the ‘Sidebar’ in the ‘Page Layout’). I just want to add ‘custom’ objects in the template builder to create it

http://tinypic.com/r/2s9905e/5
brainbuzzmedia

Ah, you can’t do that with the page builder. In order for the builder to work without knowing what blocks are used etc, it has to clear the row after it is filled to full width (ex: a 2/3 block and a 1/3 block). It is a drag and drop element builder, but it does still have limits.

I think it would be best just to use a custom sidebar with text widgets on the right.

Default-user

Ok thanks. Just 1 more question. On the demo page here (under the features section) http://themeforest.net/item/carbon-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/3605857 the title text and description text wrap around the icon and sit nicely to the right. On mine it wraps the title correctly as on the demo page, but then the description automatically just sits under the icon as opposed to the right of it. Any easy fix?

brainbuzzmedia

That one is the “Feature Horiz Icon” instead of the “Feature Icon” type, that’s the only difference is that it sits all content to the right.

Hi there,

I’d like to ask if it possible to display specific posts with the Latest Posts w/thumbs widget.

Thanks in advance

brainbuzzmedia

Yes, in the widget settings you can type in a category that you want to be displayed.

Hi, there! We bought your Modular theme and we’re hoping the template would install with the exact look and user-experience the sales website displayed, such that it would enable us to go in and swap out graphics and text and we’d be on our way in a day.

We realized after installing that there’s a lot of customization that needs doing, and we’re very remedial html/css/jquery wranglers.

Is there a way to load up the template so it looks exactly like this link, from which we can swap out elements?
