Great theme!

Question regarding the Feature Box … you have a drop-down list so that I can choose some icons. Is it possible for me to add my own icons? If so, where do they live, and how can I get them to show up in the drop-down list after I add them to the proper directory?

brainbuzzmedia

Unfortunately, no. The effect uses css3 and the icons are actually a font called websymbols. So basically, it does something that works with text but it uses text that looks like shapes. Sorry man :/

When viewing the home page on a monitor, the logo appears to the left and the nav bar appears to the right.

When viewing on a smaller screen (a tablet, for example, and with the responsive feature turned ‘on’), the nav bar moves above the logo. So from top to bottom you have:

- nav bar -
- logo -
- slider -

How can I get the nav bar to appear UNDER the logo? In other words:

- logo -
- nav bar -
- slider -

Thank you.

brainbuzzmedia

It will normally put the logo on the left and the nav bar on the right, but if you have too many links it gets bumped up. I uploaded a css change that makes the font size smaller on the tablet version so you should be able to fit more links, try it tomorrow it should be up by then.

how do you remove the slider and just leave one video linked from youtube on there?

brainbuzzmedia

If you only have one slide with your video embed pasted in the ‘video embed’ field then turn auto advance to false in the slider settings it will accomplish this.

Dear brainbuzz,

I am setting some values concerning the header in Theme options | Content Settings, i.e.: Notification mess, email and phone, social icons, search bar and nothing happens. There is something that I miss? I need absolutely some of these features in header.

Thanks a lot.

It’s just a demo, there isn’t filler content on every single page just the ones linked.

virplay

ok, but we can´t see that features.

thx

brainbuzzmedia

Ohh I see what you mean, you can see those on the main homepage. They both look like the first content below the slider/headline. One can be shown with a post query and the other you just type in custom.

hi, in the main slider, can be an any gallery? (ads, banner, etc)

or only a post gallery?

brainbuzzmedia

The slider is a custom post type called ‘slides’, you can pick an image, a link location, title and description.

hi guys, well, I suppose Im in over my head. i have been using dreamweaver for a million years and I tried to install the carbon theme on my serv er at blue host. it gave me an error so i researched it and it said that i had to unzip the final file and then re zip the carbon file and upload it. I did that and all i get is a VERY plain looking theme with no photos or anything that says Carbon on the top. Is this theme suosed to look like the advert or am I a complete bufoon thinking i was going to get a beatiful layout like it is on the advert or am I doing something wrong.

brainbuzzmedia

You’re almost there!

You just need to import the xml file with my demo setup and it will look the same as the demo. Look in the zip file you got from themeforest, there will be a folder called ‘documentation’. Inside there will be a txt file explaining how to import the demo content. If you still have trouble, please include a url.

Hi there, I’m having a hard time trying to exclude certain categories from the default blog page (not home page). Any idea how to do this?

I’ve found my way to wordpress.php and there is an array named $excluded_categories which looked really promising but pushing categories to it didn’t work. Am I missing something?

brainbuzzmedia

You have tried going into the content settings and choosing the category under excluded categories I assume?

Default-user

Well that’s embarrassing…

Thanks!

brainbuzzmedia

ok, so I went to tools and I clicked import ad then I clicked ‘wordpress’ which should allow me to import posts page comments etc and then I located the xml file in my computer and selected admin and didnt select ‘download and import file attachments’ and nothing happened but a whole bunch of menus at the top of my page. please look. http://www.ibelieveicanchangemyworld.com/

whats happening !

brainbuzzmedia

You seem to have not followed the second step of the import directions. You need to set the homepage to ‘home’ and set the main menu to ‘1’ to have it look like the demo.

Hi I just started building a site with this theme and have what is probably a really obvious question but I don’t seem to be able to figure it out. When I set up a page using the blog template, I need it to display just a summary of the post on that initial blog page not the whole post as these posts are long. If I change it to display as summary in the reading settings in general settings that does nothing so could you let me know where the setting is to change that?

Thanks Rich

brainbuzzmedia

You want to put your summary in the ‘excerpt’ field or click the ‘more’ button in the editor where you want to cut off the post.

Thanks, appreciate the quick response.

Is there a way to increase the size of the hidden text area for the Super Headline button? What about being able to disable it altogether?

brainbuzzmedia

You would just need to adjust the css for that element to resize the text.

Default-user

Thanks for the response. I can actually resize the text no problem. I would like to either increase the area for the hidden text (basically, having the button slide apart even wider) or disable the animation altogether.

If you could let me know where to look for both, I would greatly appreciate it! I do thoroughly enjoy the theme so far. Yours is, by far, one of the most professional themes I’ve worked with from this site.

brainbuzzmedia

Thanks :)

This is the css currently in the style.css that controls that:

.a-btn:hover .a-btn-slide-text{ width:100px; }

You can change that to make it wider. I think you could also probably change it to 0 to remove the effect.

Default-user

Hmm, changing that value does indeed increase the hidden text area, but it overlaps the initial text. Decreasing it to 0 only removes any hidden text area but still results in the animation.

brainbuzzmedia

Hmmm try searching the style.css for ”.a-btn:hover” and just try removing some / all of the parts from that section with :hover it the element. It will probable just be easier for you to remove the effect, I don’t really have a site set up to mess with it too much right now without changing the demo.

Also, camera slider captions, when set to “right” show up more in the middle. I’m using the fixed width theme setting. How do I go about getting this more to the actual right of the slider image?

brainbuzzmedia

Which caption style shows up more to the center?

Default-user

Every caption style moves to the right approximately 200 pixels instead of aligning to the right of the slider image, even ‘highlight’ which I assumed would not even be affected due to the notation.

brainbuzzmedia

Hmmm, its actually sort of complicated how I had to code the captions. Can you give me your url where you see this?

Default-user

Sure, www.rsbmusicstudio.com—I’ll set the captions to ‘right’ for you to see.

brainbuzzmedia

Ahh see that is where the mistake is. I have adjusted them for the full width version and smaller device version but not quite correctly for the boxed version. I’ll fix it and update it.

Default-user

Great! Thanks for your prompt replies and help.

hi brainbuzzmedia, with all due respect, i don’t think you understand the incredible frustration that it causes when you don’t go into detail.

Here is a step by step of what i have done in order to get the deo version. i am going to do this incredibly slowly so I cannot fail again.

I have installed the carbon theme on my site. I am in the wordpress admin and i am going to Tools – Import there are 8 different import options. Blogger, Bloggroll, Categories and Tags converter, Livejournal, Moveable type and typepad, RSS, tumblr and wordpress

it also says below the import list ’ if the importer is not listed search the plug in directory to see if an importer is available.

You guys have not stated on your import notes which importer we need to take is the carbon theme. I dont want to choose the wrong one abnd have to un install and then re install again.

my question is which import option do I choose so i can import the xml file.

brainbuzzmedia

Ok, I’m sorry. I will go through this as carefully as I can.

The notes say:

”- In your wordpress admin, go to Tools > Import - If it asks you to install the import plugin, do it and activate it - upload the import xml file”

I do not specify any additional plugin because of the list of 8 different options you should be choosing Wordpress, as you are using of course, Wordpress.

Looking at your site, it seems you have already tried this and it has successfully imported the demo content. The top of the page lists all pages on the wordpress installation by default, that’s why there are so many.

That however, is not the end of the import instructions, there is an additional section.

”- Now set the page “Home” as your static home page”

”- Go to Appearance > Menus, set menu “1” as your menu”

When you haven’t chosen a page to set as your homepage, the default homepage you see is the page you are talking about that says “Looks like you’ve just installed this theme.” You need to set whichever page you want as the homepage in wordpress native settings > reading. It even explains this on that “Looks like you’ve just installed…” page. That’s basically the purpose of it being there.

hi brain buzz media, i love your page layouts. what is the best way for me to create the exact same page layout as you and call it by my own chosen name. ie take your blog ’ page and use the exact layout only called it ‘blapper’

brainbuzzmedia

Well, the blog page is very easy to set up. You can just create a new page and then choose the Blog template on the right and as long as you have posts with images it will look like that.
