Great theme, working like a charm!

One piece missing for me, I need this theme in a multiple language environment (at least visible in three languages for my customers), I tried several plug-ins (like Qtranslate), but due to the template builder, this aint working. Only the “Wordpress content part” can be translated. Do you know a plug-in or work around for me? Many thanks!

brainbuzzmedia

I think WPML works pretty well, it covers most translations.

I didn’t get reply from you on this Hello BrainBuzzmedia, if you have overlooked on my reply.. here is the issue that i have been struggling, the image gallery has some red border that appears…and i believe that has something to do with theme color style. http://studiobrighteyes.com/fashion-week-2/

I’m trying to reproduce the same post you have for portfolio with image gallery. best regards, RAM

brainbuzzmedia

I am looking into it. I have about 25 other support requests from the last couple days.

brainbuzzmedia

Can I have a login for your wordpress?

I am actually have trouble installing the new theme, I have downloaded the files and zipped the carbon folder to upload the file online. However, once I upload the theme, an error shows (see below).

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare of_admin_head() (previously declared in /home/content/32/7641932/html/wp-content/plugins/options-framework/options-framework.php:300) in /home/content/32/7641932/html/wp-content/themes/carbon/admin/functions/functions.interface.php on line 140

What should I do, I have the most up to date wordpress. I have tried to trouble shoot but I need your help. Thanks Phil

brainbuzzmedia

I don’t know what to tell you, I just downloaded the copy from tf, zipped the carbon folder and installed it through wordpress and it works.

Try uploading through ftp. Make sure you are uploading / zipping only the theme folder, make sure its a zip not a rar, and doesn’t have any weird settings for the zip.

I figured out what was happening, I was installing this theme to a test server that had other plugins running and activated (Options Framework plugin was interfering with your theme). Thanks for working with me, love the theme.

Hi,

Could you tell me how I can have crisp tasty photos on the slider? The size given seems too small & yet I don’t want it to be to heavy.

What size did you use in the example

Thanks

I have had problems using images that I have upload for use in the slider. They have been cropped weird and not centered. I will try changing the images first to this 1713×531 size that is mentioned in an answer to a comment.

brainbuzzmedia

Also use images that are of a similar shape, dont put a very tall image into the slider, it will just show the middle.

Hi there,

I have one question:

How can I add the google Map in the sidebar, like you have in the demo?

Hope you can help me out. Thank you! Kind regards Kirsy

Hello, Carbon is the fifth Theme Forest premium theme I have bought, and it is my favorite because of its look and versatility. And it’s generally easy to navigate – I just can’t figure out how to alter the footer to change the number of columns – I would like them to be a little wider. Thanks.

brainbuzzmedia

Ah you mean you would like 3 instead of 4? I you change a tiny bit of code this should work. In footer.php search for “box_1_4” and replace it with “box_1_3”. Then you would need to remove the last widget area’s code entirely so there would only be 3.

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response – also, how do I change the content of the footer columns? I added Twitter feed to first one, and text to second one, but can’t figure out how to remove “categories” and “recent posts” from third and forth ones – do I need to create custom footer areas to replace defaults? Thanks.

brainbuzzmedia

Yeah any widget you add replaces the default ones, so if you want it to just be blank then put a text widget in with no text.

brainbuzzmedia

You just need to type the address into google maps and follow their links to get the embed code for your location, then in the theme options > contact page, paste that embed code in one of the sidebar areas.

ehm jep.. Tried #footer { color:#fff; } ()in the additiona/customl CSS, but that didn’t work. Here is a screenshot: a like to change the gray text probably h5 or 6? http://d.pr/i/GRba

brainbuzzmedia

Can you give me the link, can’t check what element it is from the screenshot.

I’m building offline… It’s a ‘text’ widget in the footer.

brainbuzzmedia

Do you use firebug or some other addon to lookup elements on sites you are working on? You just need to see the name of that element. It is probably something like .footer p

Hey great theme,

Only two questions. Content like the social buttons and the phone number in the header don’t work here, any suggestions for me. The other one, is it possible to add a navigation thing like you are here /page/page/contentpage ?

have a nice day and thanks

Hi Brainbuzzmedia,

I have just purchased the theme two days back, tried uploading it onto wordpress directly as a zip file. But the installation was unsuccessful, due to missing stylesheet.css file.

Please help..

Thanks

brainbuzzmedia

Yeah you need to unzip the download from tf and then there is a carbon folder inside that has the themes files. If you want to upload directly through wordpress you can just zip that folder.

hi there. great theme! is there a way to make the slider a static image…specifically to remove the slider icons?

brainbuzzmedia

Hi

Well, you could just add a ‘custom’ block instead of the slider and make it full width. Add an image only and turn the other options off. Or you could just set the slider to 1 slide and turn manual advance on.

Beautiful template, but I don’t see any example of a video posting. Please let me know how it works or where to see an example.

hi guys loving the theme, one question. it took me a while to figure it out but the icons in the featured box are part of the web icons font :S

is there any way to use our own icons and still maintain the cool colour and motioneffect used when hovering over?

brainbuzzmedia

Unfortunately no, the effect that is applied works because it’s applied to text rather than an image :/

bit strange to use a font instead of icon pngs. the other alternative would be to sue the featured box with icon option which will allow me to use my own icon – however this one doesn’t have the nice effect like the featured box does when the mouse hovers over, i.e the colour swoops in from the side. is there anyway to add this effect to it?

brainbuzzmedia

No, that’s why I used a font instead of images.

Regarding the Camera Slider on the Home page … I guess the slides appear in the order in which they are created?

A few questions:

1. Is there a way to control the ORDER in which the slides appear?

2. Is there a way to set them to appear in random order?

3. If 1 and/or 2 are not possible, can I use a different slider instead of the one that gets used by the theme? (Assuming the order in which the slides appear is a function of the slider plug-in ;-)

4. When setting the Caption Position … setting it to ‘Left’ causes the caption to appear on the left side of the slider. But setting it to ‘Right’ causes it to appear in the center of the slider. Why does this happen? How can I make the caption appear on the right?

Thank you!

brainbuzzmedia

They will appear in the order they are created and you can also add categories. You can quick edit and change the date of the slide to change the order.

You can also add a category to them, so if you have five you want to be displayed out of 15 you can add them all to the category “current” or something, and those 5 will be displayed.

You can’t show them in a random order.

The right caption position in the boxed version is a bug that I am going to fix with the next update. Just stick to left for now if you are not using wide.

Under Theme Options | Content Settings:

- I selected “Show Phone and Email in Header”. I entered my phone number and email but it doesn’t show up on any page.

- Also, I selected “Enable Notification Bar” and entered some notification text, but this doesn’t seem to work either.

Am I missing something?

brainbuzzmedia

Sorry, these two options were from the previous theme but still in the options framework. There is nowhere for them to appear in Carbon’s header style.

The options will be correctly removed in the next update.

Hi, how do I add my own icons in the Feature Box?

brainbuzzmedia

Sorry but you can’t, they are actually a font called webdings where each character is looks like an icon.

Hello Brainbuzzmedia,

with regards to feature box icons or rather font webdings, can we add more of the webdings characters? and how to add more webdings

Thanks and best regards,

ram

brainbuzzmedia

It’s a font, so all of the relevant characters are already there to choose from.
