Ok a couple questions:

1. Does the video in the home page slider only have to be swf or flv? Can you use vimeo videos there?

2. Can the video on the home page slider be set to autoplay?

3. Do you choose a picture for the video slide then when clicked the video starts playing? Or can the user just see the vimeo player window?

I hope these make sense.

1.) if you want to use it inline you need to use flv files. hoewever you can also embed vimeo or youtube files but the would be opened in a lightbox window.

2) autoplay is already enabled: this means as soon as someone clicks the image the videos starts to play automatically. it is not possible to let a video start playing completly without user interaction

3.) yes you choose a picture, showing the vimeo player would not be possible (you could only make a picture of that player and let the user click it)

Hi,

seems to be great work – as always. How would the search box and the search results look like?

Thanks, Andreas

Kriesi

here is an example of a search. the search button can be added via search widget in the sidebar :)

Another fine theme. Is it possible to link the main slider elements to any URL ? I’d love to use this theme as the home page for a multi-level site but would need to link the slider to URLs in different sub-domains

Kriesi

yes the main slideshow can link to any url

Thanks, Kriesi. I looked at the screenshots of the admin panel and didn’t see that option. Where do you configure it to do that?

Kriesi

the theme uses custom post types (new wp3 feature) to create the slides. when creating a slide you can choose which image, title, description text and link the slide should have. those options are set individually for each slide. The preview images only shows the global slideshow options that apply to all slides ;)

When using the News Slider (which I like) the images dont obey the autorotate option. Is this a bug or limitation of the news slider?

Kriesi

Any chance of you releasing a site template for this? (not Wordpress that is..)

Quick question…newbie here…love the theme. But for some reason, my blog page is showing up as my home page and vice versa. I probably messed something up. Any ideas?

Kriesi

Make sure that in your settings-> reading settings the front page displays option is set to the default value (your latest posts)

Hi

I am interested in buying this.

Could you please explain how the install loads default content. In particular have you:

1. Hard coded content into the template files which is replaced when a widget is allocated to a widgetized area by the user?

OR

2. Provided a function that presets widgets, so that they are already loaded on installation.

OR

3. Another method you can explain.

Many thanks.

default content is loaded by a backend function that imports the contents of my live preview into your wordpress installation. this is true for categories, images, posts, pages, portfolio entries, slideshow entries and testimonials.

If you choose to import them you can then simply add, remove or manage them in your wordpress backend.

widgets are not set, the are hard coded and get replaced when a widget is allocated to the widgetized area.

All the sliders autoplay for me except the newsslider. It just doesnt autoplay.

Kriesi

oh sorry forgot to mention in the docs that the newsslider is the only one that doesnt have the ability to start autorotating. This is a feature which gave me some headaches lately but I am working on it ;)

Kriesi. Love the theme. Never used Wordpress before and have managed to get most of it up and running today. Only one problem which I can’t seem to fix. The home page link on the top nav menu is broken. All the others work fine including the logo link. Any ideas? The draft site is at http://79.170.44.121/shadbolt.com/

Kriesi

hey, it seems because of the url structure you are using the theme generates a wrong link for the home button. if you will change the installation domain in the future to a “normal domain” it will work fine then. otherwise you need to use the wordpress menu manager at appearance> menu and setup your menu by hand :)

I just attempted to upload and activate the theme and all I get is a plain white screen after activating and it rendered both my site and wp-admin inaccessible with just a white screen? All other themes work just fine. Please advise

Kriesi
please make sure that you are using wordpress 3 and that your server supports php5. if thats not the case please update. otherwise please drop me a mail with the following data via my profiles page contact form:
  • url to your installation
  • access data to your backend
  • access data to your ftp server

Thanks Kriesi…Got it working….by the way, GREAT IDEA with allowing newbies like me the ability to have a fully functioning site with dummy text and graphics…this is going to help tremendously with creating the site…

Kriesi

thanks glad you like it, i was hopping that this is helping people :)

Love this theme: 2 questions. - How do I remove the border from around the image in the AviaSlider? - My description text is not showing up in the Aviaslider. Is that only used for the other types of sliders?

Many thanks!

Got the description text to show up. Still looking how to remove the boarder.

Kriesi

in style.css line 322 change

#top .fancyborder {
display:block;
position:absolute;
z-index:99;
}

to

#top .fancyborder {
display:none;
position:absolute;
z-index:99;
}

Anyway to get the “Select additional category?” dropdown boxes to display the categories in a hierarchical list? I have numerous subcategories with the same names, but don’t know which parent category they belong to.

Kriesi

unfortunatley I dont think thats possible. I am using a wordpress function to output the list of categories and didnt see a way to group the results :/

hi Kriesi,

i am writing here, because it seems like you are not replying anymore on the display theme discussion board.

can you please let me know if the display theme is compatible with wordpress 3.0? i have been trying to do the automatic update, but it does not work.

also something weird has happened to my website today: no pictures are displayed on it, while yesterday everything was working ok. i have done no modifications to it, so i really do not understand what happened. www.custom-motorcycle-parts.com

again sorry for me writing here, but we need your help over there.

thank you for your great products!

Kriesi

the link created by your installation looks completly different from your real url: http://www.eurocomponentsusa.com.php5-15.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/news_sm.jpg

maybe changing your wordpress installation url will help.

Update to wp3 worked fine for me and others reported the same. I am going to open my own support forum during the next days since supporting on these item discussions is a pain. I will anounce that on all themes and support will be then available for all themes again :)

Kriesi maybe you will help us with your other theme? Look to expose discussion…

I know, I am sorry for that. I am going to open my own support forum during the next days since supporting on these item discussions is a pain. I will anounce that on all themes and support will be then available for all themes again :)
