Hi, Having installed the COLD folder via ftp and changed permissions etc I added some extra pages via the wordpress admin panel, as per previous template installation, I can’t navigate to the url (/) of my site I’m redirected to the 404 page and also these added pages (about us etc ) are not visible in the top menu of the /home/ page (which i can access for some reason )?

Many Thanks

JD

Did you set a static home page? Did you configure WordPress properly (WordPress Address and Site Address)?

About the top menu – you need to add your pages to the menu and pick this menu from the ‘Header Menu’ dropdown list (the ‘Theme Locations’ box). If you don’t know how to use the WordPress menu system please read this article.

Thanks for the reply.

I did indeed set up a Static Homepage.

When you say configure Wordpress properly, could you expand on that please ?

It was running ok on twenty12 (sp) earlier today, the pages I added where showing/directing correctly ?

Menu Sorted now thanks.

Many Thanks

Can you send me your WP admin login and password? It will be easier to fix this issue if I can look at it.

  • edit

The index page has now appeared ?

Not sure what happened there

One issue I can’t quite fathom yet though is the “about us” page is displayed like this in the browser address bar.

"about-us-3/"

is there an easy way of losing the “-3” It can’t be amended in the admin panel for some reason .

Many Thanks once more.

It isn’t a theme related question. You can change the page permalink by editing it in the field below the page title (check this screenshot).

Theme Options -> Home Page Options – these sections are called ‘featured boxes’.

Hello,

I purchased a while ago and have mainly use the site in a static fashion. Meaning I made my home page a static page. However, I want to a new page that will be my blog.

I left that page as the default template, but it isn’t pulling in any of the test posts I have done. You can check out the site here, www.quentinb.com

Cheers Q

You have to set your home page as a static home page and your blog page as a posts page (Settings -> Reading). You can read more about this here.

Sweet, got it. One other question is, can I control what categories show up in the side bar?

e404
e404 Author

No, you can’t. But there are a lot of categories widgets in the official WP repository – I’m sure you’ll find something interesting.

how can I just put in text instead of uploading a logo image in header of cold theme. thanks

e404
e404 Author

Yes, but it requires a small modification of the header.php file. Just replace the image with any HTML code.

Default-user

Where exactly in header and what html code? Thanks

e404 Author
I’m sorry, but customizing the theme isn’t a part of our standard theme support. But I’m sure you’ll make it by yourself – just take a look at the header.php file and find the logo div:
<div class="leftside" id="logo" />

This text is placed in the Intro Text Box. You can edit or disable it on the Theme Options -> Intro Text Box screen (Intro Text Box for Home Page).

and how do i justify the text in the header to the left?

There is no text in the header, so I’m not sure what you are referring to. Could you be more descriptive (some screenshot would be very helpful)?

Did you use the slider shortcode in the Intro Text Box? You can’t do that.

e404 Author

Why do you want to place the slider shortcode into the Intro Text Box? Just place it into the page content.

i was trying to read through all the questions but i didn’t see this.. what contact widget are you using on your sample pages? thanks!

e404
e404 Author

It’s Contact Form 7 Widget – it requires Contact Form 7 plugin installed. You can find a sample form code in the theme documentation.

since i have your ear ;-) i see where i can edit the featured boxes but i’m not sure what short codes to use… i’m going to go back through my zip file to see if there’s a documentation file. is there a simple way to get boxes to appear?

garygersin

i see where i can edit them i just cant figure out how to get them to appear under the slider.. hmmmm BTW .. cant wait til i get all these features figured. i build websites for friends and family and will probably just keep purchasing this layout since it has so many bells and whistles.

e404
e404 Author

You shouldn’t use shortcodes in featured boxes – there is too little space for something more than few words. You can edit featured boxes content in the theme options (Theme Options -> Home Page Options).

Of course there is a documentation in the theme package – you can find it in the ‘documentation’ folder.

garygersin

totally lost on getting featured boxes to appear.. dug through everything.. they are ready to go but i cant get them to appear on static home page

hi, i can’t add slides homepage… how it works? thx.

e404
e404 Author

The slider creation process is described in the theme documentation. Did you set featured images for all your slides? Did you pick the Home Page template fro your home page?

Default-user

i created one slide and set featured image and add home page template but it isn’t work, i think i do mistakes but where?

Default-user

and i click “view slide” “404-file or not…”

Could you send me your website URL ?

By the way: slides don’t have own pages, so you can’t preview or view slides just like regular pages.

You don’t have any slides in your slider. Did you pick a slideshow with slides (or all slides) from the “Slideshow to display in slider” dropdown list (Theme Options -> Home Page Options)? Did you set a featured image for your slide?

Please send me your WP admin login and password – I can configure this slider for you.

Man, do not show your password on the public forum! You should send me it via an e-mail.

ok, then i changed

You didn’t set featured images for your slides. Please take a look at the box titled “Slide Image” (under the slide content) and click “Set the featured image” link. If you don’t know how to set featured images please read this article.

There is something wrong with your WordPress or server configuration. When I’m trying to upload an image I get this message:
Y√ľklenen dosya buraya ta??namad?: C:\Web\PhpSites\genbar.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/04.
It’s probably some problem with ‘uploads’ folder permissions (should be 755). Also this path shows that your webserver is runnign Windows – I know there are problems with setting folder permissions on some Windows servers, so if you can’t figure it our by yourself please contact your hosting provider.

The Google+ header icon is already available in the Cold Theme.

Yes, you are looking right. ;) Look for the ‘Google+ Profile URL ’ field.

By the way: it was added in the version 1.8, so if you have an older version installed you need to upgrade first.

You can replace default icons with your own – just make sure file names are the same.
