Hello, I would like to change the background color of superheading (possibility to have many colors). Exemple : superheading blue for one page, superheading green for the second…... It is a wish of my client. Can you tell me what files to edit and what level? Thank you

brainbuzzmedia

Hi

You could do this. The super headline block has an options field in it called ‘custom classes’. You can put a class in here and then style it on the styling options > custom css area in the theme options. So you could put say, customsh1 and then in the custom css in the theme options you could put this:

.customsh1 { background-color:#f0a !important; }

Default-user

SOrry, but I don’t understand. I don’t find ‘custom classes” in the css.

brainbuzzmedia

custom classes is a field on all template blocks where you can tell that block to add a class to its container which you can then add to the css. it gives you the option to style any block differently.

“The super headline block has an options field in it called ‘custom classes’”

Please look at the fields in the super headline block.

Default-user

SOrry, but it doesn’t work. I put .superH_green {background-color: #690 !important;} in my style.css and superH_green in the superheading custom classes field.

brainbuzzmedia

Ok, can i see the url you are trying this on to see what the problem is?

Default-user

no return from you?

Default-user

It would be nice if you responded…

brainbuzzmedia

Hi, yes it looks like although the custom css field is on the superheadline, it doesn’t currently work like the other blocks. I am going to update in within the week. Download the theme again next week and you can even just overwrite the file “incudes/super_headline.php”.

Default-user

Thanks to tell me when the update theme will be available.

brainbuzzmedia

I updated it over the weekend.

Default-user

Thanks, now it works.

is there a way to choose custom colours for the slider caption text? i seem to be stuck with black for the caption title when there is no background?

brainbuzzmedia

You could pop this into the custom css area in theme options > styling options:

.no_background .camera_caption h2 a, div.camera_wrap div.slide_no_background h2 a { color:green; }

or #ffffff or whatever color code you want.

Hi!

I changed where the icon appears (to both header and footer), and it still only appears in the footer… any way I can fix this??

Also, I understand if you don’t know the answer, but I’m thinking of buying Revolution Slider instead of using the slider that came with your theme… do you think it will be compatible? The main reason why I want it is because of the video feature I like having a video only take up part of the slider as to having it fill up the whole thing… Gahh! Thanks!

brainbuzzmedia

Hi

The icons can only be shown in the footer, that is a bug in the options to have header in there, theres no space for them in this theme.

You should be able to set up rev slider just fine, I am using it in my next theme.

Hello,

Is there a way to alter the size of the slider on the homepage? The camera slider option in the template builder only lists one size option. If that functionality is not part of the template, is it possible to add that in by purchasing one of the other WP sliders?

brainbuzzmedia

You can change this to whatever you’d like with more control by going into the file at carbon/includes/sliders/camera/camera-init.php

the height setting is a % of the total width or you can use px

Default-user
sajibaba Purchased

Thank you for the reply and pointing me in the right direction. Changing the height % or px count only changes the height, what is the code to change the width? (I tried changing a few other lines to limit to width but this only served to prevent the slider from loading all together). Basically, I’m wanting to have a left adjusted box about 640px x 440px). Thanks again for the support…

brainbuzzmedia

It just fits to the width of the container it is in. You can change the width of the css element “div.slider_container”. Currently, it is set to 90% of the page with 5% padding on the left and right. If you increase the width, decrease the padding, they should add up to 100%.

The slider is set up to be used as a block, in that it occupies the whole horizontal line. It would take a decent bit of work to set it up in the way you are saying (partial width, I assume with other content to the right).

Default-user
sajibaba Purchased

Ok, thank you so much for the detailed reply. Yes, your assumption is right that I wanted to place content to the right of it. I may try to load a different slider plugin into the template to see if that does the trick, if not, I’ll go with a different design. It is a shame if I won’t be able to use it because everything else about the design is perfect for what I’m looking for.

brainbuzzmedia

You should be able to put a different slider in there fairly easily. Hope it works out.

Is it possible to justify the text in the custom box?

brainbuzzmedia

What do you mean, to the center? You can create a custom class such as:

.centertext { text-align:center; }

and put that in theme options > styling options > custom css

then in the custom block’s settings put centertext in the custom classes field.

Default-user
dunnery Purchased

no, i mean to make the text fully align so that it is always in perfect square blocks.

brainbuzzmedia

What does that mean? Do you have an example?

Default-user
dunnery Purchased

there is left justify, center justify and right justify. but there is also a full justify which means that the text is perfectly straight down BOTH sides of the paragrasph. when you justify left the text is straight on the left but ragged on the right because it doesnt go all the ay to the end of the page just like this question! when you full justify the text is stretched right to the end and looks perfectly straight. does this make sense?

Default-user

like this

brainbuzzmedia

Oh, I see what you mean. I have no idea though, and that is a totally theme independent issue. Why would you want to do that anyway? From a design standpoint, it is very bad.

Default-user

i actually got it sorted. you simply type justifytext at the bottom of the page and it does a beautiful job. Ill show you the site when i finish, it looks great.

i have another question. in the footer, there are 4 columns, is it possible to delete one of the colums and make the middle one wider? I dont need 4 columns i need 3 because i dont want the twitter to extend the footer so much. If I can delete one of the columns and make the middle column wider ( the width of 2 columns) then it wouldnt need to drop so much. does this make sense to you or am i talking in riddles again ha ha

brainbuzzmedia

I think, my friend, that you either need to hire a web designer to help you with your many customizations or look into html/css ;)

Ahhh I see, well then I would suggest getting a web designer that knows how to do these things, as the majority of them are relatively simple and just require time.

brainbuzzmedia

Not a big deal :) It’s just if I am a designer and you have a designer, whichever one is doing the work should be the one getting paid i would like to think. I do those types of things all the time when I’m working with another author’s theme :p

I am not re designing it, I LOVE the design, there are just a couple of things that we need to bend in order to make it work to the exact specs of my needs. Im selling things and there are a few options that would make my life incredibly easy,. for instance….. on the blog template the icon is bigger than the horiz template. I love the blog layout but i can only use it on blog. could you provide me with a custom css so that I can alter the icon size on feature horiz template because I simply cannot find it anywhere. the icon is too small to display products but the page functions beautifully. this is not a re design, its just a way to get the site working for my needs.

ok, heres another valid question. Please look at this page:

http://www.ibelieveicanchangemyworld.com/buy-now-button

and tell us how to remove the grey border/background from the buy now button. The grey border is showing because of the carbon theme, it doesn’t show up when using one of the default wordpress themes. Is there some custom css that we need to use to get rid of this grey border?

brainbuzzmedia

Sure thing. In the custom css area you can add this code:

input[type=”image”] { background:transparent; }

If anyone is having trouble with the contact form (throwing errors) with the following error: Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /home/content/58/10212758/html/bts/wp-content/themes/carbon/sendmail.php on line 30

(I was getting the form submission via email but I kept getting the above error message.)

You need to change the following lines in the sendmail.php file:
if (!eregi( "^[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]+(\.[a-z0-9-]+)*(\.[a-z]{2,3})$", $email_address)) { $errors .= "\n Error: Invalid email address"; } //send email



New code is:
if (!preg_match("/^[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]+(\.[a-z0-9-]+)*(\.[a-z]{2,3})$/i", $email_address)) { $errors .= "\n Error: Invalid email address"; } //send email

Create a new slide instead of post and then add a slider block in the template builder (on whichever page you want it on).

No, sorry, they come into the theme in different files and can only go in the order shown.

brainbuzzmedia

If you are using custom colors you can view the page’s source, click the link to customcolor.php and save that instead as customcolor.css. Now in the header.php search for where customcolor.php is and change it to customcolor.css.

Finally, upload customcolor.css to the themes files.

Hi can you explain how to add photos of choice to the camera slider? I dont get why its related to posts???

brainbuzzmedia

Its related to slides, not posts. Go to add new slide, give it the title for that slide and set a feature image to show up with the slide.

Is there a way to use nextgen gallery completely also for the featured image?

how can i rebuild the “single Portfolio post” like yours? because its not in the xml. It forwards to your page??? Its pointing to your page called 674

Could you modify the camera slider so that its possible to select pictures directly without creating slides?

brainbuzzmedia

Its related to slides, not posts. Go to add new slide, give it the title for that slide and set a feature image to show up with the slide.

In the theme settings > content settings you can set which posts show up as portfolio single pages instead of blog single pages.

The slider works how it works. You create each slide by adding a new slide, giving it a title and optional text and an image.

Hey hey there, I’m having some difficulty finding the icons you use in the section on the preview home page “Icon, this post has” The icons have circular borders and I can’t find these in the theme itself or the links you’ve provided. Where do these come from?

Thanks.

The icons are only part of the demo as an example of what you can do with it. Try searching for free icons or check out a site like this http://www.1stwebdesigner.com/freebies/minimal-icons-2012/

Is it a bug that once you clone a page with complex Template Builder elements it wont copy it over?

brainbuzzmedia

I’m not sure what you’re saying but if you click to go to the actual post page and not the entire portfolio page it will only show the content for that portfolio post.

lets say you add 6 times 1/3 custom fields and enter image locations inside them. As soon as you duplicate the page the template builder inside the duplicated page is empty and only shows the wordpress content container.

brainbuzzmedia

How are you duplicating the page?
