thank you brainbuzzmedia. I still have one more problem, can you take a look at the site and see all the menus at the top? what is this? this always happens after i import the xml file.

Did you follow the portion of the demo instructions that says to set the menu?

ok, im getting close. now if you take a look at the site all the menus are repeated three times. I must be such a dweeb. sorry! i just have never ben on this thing before. do you know why they are all there 3 times/

brainbuzzmedia

Yeah, it looks like you imported the demo stuff 3 times which then puts them in the menu 3 times. You could go into Appearance > Menu and delete the extras, that would probably be the best way to do it.

yyyyyeeeeeeaaaaahhhhhhhhh, I finally got it. I just deleted them. oh my god Im such a twit. OK brain buzzmedia, you are my man or woman on the ground. Im going to start by asking a few idiotic questions, please bear with me. the links at the top. home, pages etc etc. am I right in thinking i simply change the names of the links I want and choose the names for the submenus as well OR….. do i need to create a brand new page because your design is locked?

what are the sizes of the images in the main slideshow? should I make them a certain size or will it stretch it? it seems to cut the top of the picture off, is this normal? LOVING the site. brilliant stuff!

brainbuzzmedia

That menu is controlled through the menus manager that you used to delete the extras. You can see there is a list of all pages in the wordpress (on the left, in the menu manager). You can add any page to the menu, you can also add any custom link by using the custom section.

So if you wanted a new page that is different than the demo, such as “my business” or something, you would create a page called my business and then go back into the menu manager and add that to the menu.

The images for the slider just need to be somewhat of a horizontal rectangle. The max size the slider will display them at is around 1700×500 but you can use smaller images, just try to crop them first if they are tall instead of wide.

dear brainbuzzmedia, If I change the title of one of the navigation menus such as ‘blog’ if i change it to ‘gifts’ then will it be recognised by all the pages that were linked to blog?

brainbuzzmedia

Yes, but if the “Blog” link is directly to a page named blog then you need to make a new page, not change the title.

Im not sure about the most practical way to use your theme. There seems to be a ton of different pages. blog large, blog med. how do i copy the blog page i want? Im jyst not sure what to do. the links are different on all the pages. do i simply choose 1 page and save it as something else? or do i create a new page and re build it from the bottom up. Im in over my head. wow

brainbuzzmedia

If you want to create a blog, you need 2 things really:

1. Create a new page, name it whatever you want, click the template type and choose a blog. There are three looks for the blog but you can choose any of them, switch it later if you want and it will just change it to that style.

2. You need to create posts to show up in your blog. Those posts can have a featured image set so it will show up on the blog too.

i am beginning to understand the way it works so thank you. on the first slider i would like the text to be in white so that it stands out more against the blue background. i looked in the slider options but there doesnt seem to be a text colour option. is there a way to change the color of the text on the sliders?

Default-user

also, i uploaded my logo to the main page and i used div.logo a { margin-top:15px; } to center it on the links but now the white is vertically too big. is there any code to close the space around the logo?

brainbuzzmedia

The logo looks good to me, is it still a problem?

If you want to change the text in the blue highlight background from black to white, try this:

div.camera_wrap .slide_highlight h2 a, .highlight .camera_caption h2 a {color:#fff;}

Hmm, captions are now showing up differently within different browsers. In Chrome, the caption doesn’t rise completely above the Super Headline. In Firefox, it clears the Super Headline but doesn’t seem to rise completely to where it has been prior to this evening. In IE, it seems to look as intended. I will play around a bit and see what may be causing the issues; I figured I would ask if you had any tips for working across browsers with this theme specifically.

brainbuzzmedia

Yeah, I’m going to take a look at the captions in the boxed version and make sure they are all aligned perfectly, just a tad busy because of the holidays.

No worries. Enjoy the holidays.

Hi! Couple questions…

I’m thinking the default slide size is 1713×531 as you have in the demo. Is that correct?

Also, on my camera slider the captions don’t raise to the height in the demo, they stop before crawling up the slide the whole way, and therefore half of the caption remains cut off (at the bottom of the slide). This happens on highlight and non highlight captions, but not on vertical captions. I left all the settings default. Any ideas?

Lastly, can I use a custom font from typekit instead of a google font? and if so, how?

Thanks in advance!

brainbuzzmedia

The easiest way to use a custom font would be to include it in fonts.php.

I think I figured out the caption problem I had on the camera slider… if one selects non-responsive as a theme setting, it affects the captions on 1713×531 slides. Making the theme responsive again fixed it.

hi, the navigation buttons having page numbers and ‘next’ text do not work, the first page is always displayed. In blog template.

brainbuzzmedia

Please supply me with a link and wordpress login. As you can see, it is working in the demo. Also note any changes you or plugins you have added that could interfere with this somehow..

Is it possible to add a search bar to the portfolio? Bought your theme and set it up but want to have a search field in my portfolio.

brainbuzzmedia

It would require some custom coding, but it is possible to do.

Hi just purchased you theme, after unzip the file, there is no carbon_install.zip, please tell me how to install it from Wordpress Thanks

brainbuzzmedia

I think this is something you should submit a ticket to envato support about. I don’t get to see what it’s like from the buyer’s perspective but I have uploaded an install zip in their option for “wordpress install file”. Is there an option to download that?

HI, I followed the instruction to import the file and set the home page and set the menue 1, but I still see a bunch of menu on top, please let me know what I did wrong

The menu isn’t set. Check it again and make sure you choose 1 and then save.

Thank you for your quick responds

Is it possible to set the top portion (logo and menu) stays floating on the top, so when the page is scrolled down, the menu always stays on top.

Thank

brainbuzzmedia

This feature is not built into the theme but I am sure it could be done pretty easily with some css changes if you wanted to hire a freelancer for a few hours.

Hi! how can I create a portfolio small (or medium or large)? I downloaded the nextgen-gallery plugin, uploaded a set of images and create a new page with the shortcode [nggallery id=1] and the portfolio template but it doesn’t work..

Am I missing anything? thanks

brainbuzzmedia

Did you read the section in the documentation on how to create a portfolio? You need to choose the portfolio template on the page you want to be the portfolio.

yes I read the documents and I choosed the portfolio template for this page http://www.gruppogfcostruzioni.it/costruzioni/

layout of this page contains only wordpress content (a text and the shortcode [nggallery id=1]) but i don’t see anything

i want something like this http://themeforest.net/item/carbon-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/3605857
brainbuzzmedia

The portfolio displays posts. Each post is a portfolio item and inside each post you can put the nggallery for a gallery to have extra images.

You need to add posts, preferably put them in a category like ‘portfolio’ and then in the theme options > content settings choose that category for ‘portfolio category’.

brainbuzzmedia

Hmm it should work. Can you send me a url where you’re trying this?

I’m building something here: www.gameoncoach.com and I can’t find any settings options for the slider. Right now, it’s pretty glitchy with one image.

Thanks for any assistance! Love the theme…

All the best.

brainbuzzmedia

For me it says “Error establishing a database connection”

Really? On the website? Can you try again?

The settings would just be in the block Camera Slider on the page you added it to. You can turn on manual transitions so the slide dont change if you only want one.

Hi, everything is coming alone very niece. can you tell me how to re-size the rectangle caption box in the camera slide. Thanks

brainbuzzmedia

Hi, you would need to change the css. I recommend the Firefox plugin Firebug to find the name of the elements you want to change.

Can you send us the icon collection that you use in the Horizontal Features section? Or tell us where to get it. I didn’t see them in the download. (I’m hoping there may be additional icons in that style apart from the six you show in the demo.) Thanks in advance!

Hi, yes what is your email?
