This theme looks beautiful. I love the icon boxes and the whole look is just fantastic. Sadly, after reading through all the comments here, the developers customer service seems pretty abysmal. Is there another forum where you guys ask questions and he actually answers? I noticed that the slider in the boxed version of the demo isn’t great…the captions get hidden by the bullet points, has this been fixed? I could get by without his help, but it scares me when a developer goes awol, eventually WordPress will get another huge upgrade and will this theme survive it? Who knows. I’d love it if brainbuzzmedia could comment on this himself. I truly would like to purchase carbon.

brainbuzzmedia

Well that’s not very nice. I mean the comment about the theme is. I am very much not AWOL, I have eventually replied to everyone who needs help. But understanding that I am one person and dont have a whole team of people is important. And yes, all of my recent themes use the exact same framework and they will all be able to be easily upgraded at the same time any time something changes. I think you are being more than a little bit overdramatic. The captions for the boxed version of the slider are really the only outstanding issue as far as I can see.

there seems to be a bug with the feature boxes & custom boxes roll over effect on the home page of my site.

if you click through from any of these boxes and then click the back button to go back to the homepage in safari the colour is still occupying the box. this happens to all the boxes. this doesn’t happen in any other browser & the only way to remove it is to refresh the page.

has this been noted/is there any code i can amend?

brainbuzzmedia

That is interesting. It doesn’t seem like an overly big deal to be honest, but I can take a look eventually.

maybe not to some people but when a customer pays for development they expect it to work. have you replicated the issue or would you like me to email a screen shot? Overall this is a great theme and i love the functions. however 2 things that would be good to implement is 1. allow the upload of your own icon to featured boxes instead of using the web fonts. 2. that the current structure of this site (www.firstchoicemarqueehire.co.uk) uses the custom box function all over the place as the client loves the <hr /> looking bars below the title – however i cannot embed the gravity form shortcode on the contact page anywhere in a custom box apart from the wordpress content area – i cannot move the content box due to having a featured image on the page.

It is a great template thank you for sharing with us. I was wondering is there an easy way to make the email section in the contact form non-validated. I don’t want it to be mandatory area.

thank you in advance

brainbuzzmedia

Hi

If you open the file /js/settings.js and remove the beginning code starting with “validation” all the way to right before where it says “pretty photo” then this should remove the javascript for validation.

I removed the code up to validation section when i press submit button it directs me an empty page http://nxtcondominiums.com/wp-content/themes/carbon/sendmail.php

Thank you in advance

Does the email send?

so here’s my problem. I thought I would be able to purchase this theme and then simply copy and paste my text/content/ photos/ into the theme. It seems like I made a HUGE mistake because it seems as though i need to understand wordpress code to operate this theme. I am so confused by the entire thing it makes me depleted. I realize that it is my own stupidity but there is no one I can speak to and I NEED to speak to someone about what the hell is going on and the only way to contact is on this forum which is not adequate for me. I have about 20 questions that i need to ask without waiting 2 days for an answer. Is anyone out there kind enough to spare 10 minutes of their time privately so i can find out what on earth i am supposed to do with this bag of snakes. I have been staring at it for months and I simply cannot fathom how i am supposed to operate it. there are portfolio pages in the pages link, there are portfolio pages by themselves, there are millions of links, and I havent a clue how I am supposed to do this. If you tell me that only people who know how to write wordpress code should do this then I accept my error and i will go back to dreamweaver. I just need 10 minutes of basic questions on live chat or phone or even email and then i can be on my way. please help, its totally depressing.

brainbuzzmedia

You absolutely do not need to know any wordpress code to use this theme. I have painstakingly accounted for the user not needing to know anything at all to use this theme.

If you happen to have a gmail address, I can talk to you briefly on gtalk and get things sorted out. If not, just please send me an email with your website url and as many questions as you have. Just please, please, use paragraphs.

i would like to able to have different pages use the blog template BUT be able to choose what catagories show up on the individual pages. the portfolio template allows this but the layout is not suitable for certain types of pages. The blog templates do not allow you to choose what post catagories show up per page. is there any way this can be changed or added.

Default-user
dunnery Purchased

we don’t want every single post showing up on the blog template. you cannot exclude different catagories per page like you can with the portfolio template

Default-user

so when we choose a catagory in the page settings, currently it only pertains to portfolio, i would like it to pertain to ANY template.

could you create a new portfolio template that has the same page layout as the blog template?

brainbuzzmedia

Yeah, that is a very uncommon requirement I think as far as the every day wordpress user. I could customize this for you, send me an email and i’ll give you a quote.

The only slider style that came loaded with the theme is “camera”....the documentation said there were six…where are the other five?

Also, is it possible to change the dimensions of the slider(s) without effecting the responsivity in a negative way?

brainbuzzmedia

There are 6 slide styles, this is how the slide and caption is displayed. They all use the camera slider and you can see an example of each in the demo. It’s not necessary to have multiple sliders when one can be styled to look however you want.

brainbuzzmedia

You can change the slider in the file located here: includes/sliders/camera/camera_init.php

The height setting can be set as % or pixels.

Hello,

i had the pleasure to buy your theme Carbon few weeks ago and i am nearly ready to launch my website.

However, I have juste a little problem for which i allow myself to ask for your help !

But i want the four images to be not reduce as they are, but full are they used to be. I try to edit the style sheet with no success… Could you help me ?

Thank you very much for your time,

Marie

brainbuzzmedia

Considering my last comment: using the br code etc is not working… I have some problems with the columns. If i use for instance [box_half] twice and then want a break and add a new title, the title goes into to the second column of teh previous one because there isn’t as much text as in the first box..

Like this: http://d.pr/i/S17L

And how can I align the bullets to the top, not the middel: http://d.pr/i/pT5V

Thank you!

I’m building offline with Xampp so I can’t. What do you need to know?

I can’t really get a good picture of what’s you’re trying to do or what all is entered into the editor to cause it.

Ok.. I’ll do it this way:

1) If I type in this HTML: http://d.pr/i/8L8R It shows this: http://d.pr/i/8L8R Since I want the second title on a new ‘line’, I have to edit the code like this: http://d.pr/i/5VkI

This is because normal HTML code doesn’t work, for example: http://d.pr/i/e7GM Also I think the spacing between the title en de text is very big.

2) Second problem is this: http://d.pr/i/kDLD I need the bullets to align ‘top’ not center.

I hope you can help me out. Thank you!

3) How can align quotes made with pullright to the text?: http://d.pr/i/uN60

Also. For the featured slider I only have one slide and therefor want to remove the play, forward and backward button in the slider. How can I do this?

brainbuzzmedia

For 1) I am sorry that this someone got skipped (if it did) from the shortcode documentation, but using this code will provide a line break across all floating elements:

<div class="clear" />

The reason that it doesn’t work with br is that the elements have to use the ‘float’ attribute to appear on the same line, so it just adds the br below the shorter column.

2) I’m not sure if you can even do this in css, but if you can it is just generic css question that would need to be googled. I would recommend asking this question on stackoverflow.com

3) Try putting everything inside a box first. [box_half] then the pull right and blockquote and then your other text [/box_half]

For the slider, open the file located at ‘includes/sliders/camera/camera-init.php’

You will see how there a number of attributes. Add this to them:

navigation: false,

Also, make sure in your slider’s settings that manual advance is set to yes.

Hi.. The “Show Phone & Email in Header?” feature does not work. “Yes” is selected under it. But phone and email does not show up in header. Does anybody else have this issue? How do I fix it?

Thanks

Hi, this was accidentally left in from the previous theme’s options, there is nowhere for it to fit into this theme and has been removed from the latest version.

It just doesn’t really work with the way this theme is layed out. The link buttons take up that area.

Hi, can I delete the ‘dots’ in the slider, my text is now in it. I want the text higher, is that possible? How can I get the posts on the homepage (as your demo) with the icons, I dont get it working. How can I edit the super headline? Tnx

ok, so i figured it out. (you should mention how it works on your help file). Next question: I dont use the super bar, so now it shows my slide title double. One time in the slider, one time in the bar underneath the slider (which is the same as the standard bars in the pages). www.rechtuit.nu

Did you figure this out? It seems so from the site.

So I encountered some kind of bug. I have a menu, with submenu’s. One of the head items in menu doesn’t have a page underneath it. It does have two submenu items. On pc, everything works, on iPad, the menu doesn’t work, because there is no page underneath it. (see: www.rechtuit.nu) menu item ‘Diensten’ on iPad.

brainbuzzmedia

Hmm try adding a link to # for the parent Diensten. That is likely it. How did you get the menu item in there without a link anyway?

Hello,

I’m loving this template so far. I’m trying to change the color of the Title above the photos in my “Custom” area. When I add a span class tag the color changes as I’d like, but there’s residual code showing up in the text block under the photo. Any suggestions on how to change this particular headline color?

Thanks

Hello,

First of all, I solved the issue I previously wrote about regarding changing the Title color – all is good there.

Secondly, when viewing on a 1920 pixel wide monitor, the sliders have black on the left and right edges. I’d like that to be white, if possible. How can I change that?

thanks!

Hi is there a widget for “latest posts” that respects excluded categories?

thx!

I believe that the widget should not use excluded cats, are you seeing that it doesn’t?

How can the slider be on all pages? I added it to the blog page but it does not stay there for interior (single) blog pages

brainbuzzmedia

You can add a slider to any page you like, if you wanted it on a single post you could go to that post and add a slider to it as well. If you wanted it to always be included on all posts of course this would be a hassle to add it to each, you would need to customize some of the code to just include it by default.

Does this theme work with WPML? or qtranslate then or no?

brainbuzzmedia

Yes it should work fairly well with WPML

Default-user

If I purchase this theme, can you offer support to get WPML working?

Default-user

AS I understand and with some testing it is not working with the wpml? will you be able to offer support?

brainbuzzmedia

I don’t offer support on plugins not included in the theme, sorry.
