Hi,

Is it possible to use a logo instead of “home” in the navigation? If yes, is it then possible to set navigation items to be fixed?

Thanks! Great work!

cosmothemes

Hi. No, the navigation can not have a logo in it, the navigation could be made fixed by customizing the code.

Hi is there a way i can make a page ajaxed just like it was on the front page menu but i don’t want it showing in the menu.

cosmothemes

Hi,

Colorbow is a one-page site… so what do you mean by making an “ajaxed” page, and “not included” in the menu? Thanks

Hi,

Firstly, Brilliant theme!!

Secondly, Can Frontend submission be activated in this theme? And can the like function be displayed anywhere on the site using a shortcode? (Does it have a shortcode?) Thanks

Regards Marcus

cosmothemes

Hi Marcus,

First, thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately Colorbow is a one-page theme, and it definitely does not have a front-end submission. Also, the Like system is based on post’s meta-data, so no short-code available, sorry.

Cheers!

I bought the template Colorbow, I found it very nice. Unfortunately, the template is not as it is advertised with them forest. You have much more self-programming, such as the contact page and the portfolio. The support also responds only at the beginning. I can not recommend this theme. sorry. Enrico

cosmothemes

Hi Enrico,

i am sorry to hear that. Really. What do you mean by “not as it is advertised”? We do not lie… you can make your site look at least like in demo, so what’s the catch then?

Secondly, what do you mean by “self programming” in contact page or portofolio? Here is the contact page from the demo http://i.imgur.com/NqQsIFC.png You have just to edit (if you want, if not – it will work as it is) the shortcode. THen the portofolio page – http://i.imgur.com/C312EpN.png just create a page, select what do you want on it, what view and it’s label. I do not agree with you.

Third – yes, I admit that sometimes we are overwhelmed with questions, and we are replying later. I apologize for that, even that I am sometimes writing back while going to sleep or early in the morning. But NONE of the questions are left in purpose. We do not select our clients, we just answer your questions. Also, you have our ticketing system, to open any ticket you want – https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home .

Fourth – I thank you. Really. I respect those who are sincere. Maybe you misunderstood our theme, didn’t get support on time, or any other circumstance, or you just don’t like this theme – it’s your choice and I respect it. At least you are saying it, and we have a transparent feedback.

Best regards, Nick

Hi Nick, Thanks for the detailed answer! I am beginning to understand the system! :-) Does this theme also the possibility of a footer for “Data Protection”, “About us” to set etc.?

Thanks for the great help!

Enrico

cosmothemes

Hi Enrico,

for footer information, please see this box in general settings: http://i.imgur.com/PFuIEMg.png The result is this http://i.imgur.com/elVPsrI.jpg

That box supports not just plain text, but HTML as well.

Hi Nick, the code does not work in the footer alas! :-( What can I do? And I would have written a different color on the team page, is that possible? 1000Thanks!

Why are you ignoring me? Still the same problem here even after deleting everything and setting up everything new: “After going to another menu itme and going back to slideshow” “not only autoplay stops working, also the bullet and arrow navigation within the slideshow stops working”

cosmothemes

Please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with a link to your site and an admin account, we’ll handle this. I am also sorry if you felt ignored – I am sure that wasn’t intentionally, although I do not recall this question entirely… where did you wrote it?

I have bought the template and it’s realy great. Get a lot of great response. However i run to many difficulties indexing the content in google. I found out that i need to make html snapshots in order to let google crawl the site. However i’m a bit stuck. The google webmaster tools say that there is nothing wrong, but the website is not searchable on the internet. What am i missing??

cosmothemes

There are a lot of causes that can create this issue. Can you please send us a link to your site? Also, please see these similar threads: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/website-not-showing-up-in-google-search-listings and http://yoast.com/articles/wordpress-seo/

Thank you for the quick reply. The link: http://www.badmintonammo.com I manages to get the domain itself searchable now, but the rest of the pages are not working. When i try to use site:http://www.badmintonammo.com in google, the first hit is this website, the bottom 2 links are from the old site.

Google needs some time to re-index it’s databases… so you can wait a little bit. Here is a helpful link for you: http://www.google.com/intl/en/webmasters/

Hi Virusnac, i have almost solved the issue. I only need to know where i can change the code to use #! instead of #. Where can i find the file to replace the # for #!, when browsing pages. #home to #!home etc.. Thanks again :)

cosmothemes

Hi,

there are a lot of places where you’ll have to change that. You can start with /js/functions.js . But you will break the site, so I do not recommend changing this. Have a good week!

Hi virusnac,

I’ve been using this theme since january now and it’s ok. Nowerver, I’ve got a problem I can’t solve : the slowness of load for pages. My customer is quite irritated with this subject and I’m searching how I could better this point. Moreover, in Google Analytics, I see people dont spend more than 35 second on the website in general, due to an important number of consultations with 00:00 second : this means people give up before seeing the page because of slowness. You should have met this problem, so can you tell me what can be done to solve or better this point ?

Thank you very much for your help – ideas (and other users if some meet the same problem)

Thank you in advance and have a good day.

cosmothemes

Hi, On the first place try to reduce from your content’s space – images should be lighter. Try to run from iframes – these iframes are taking too much time to load. You could cut from content too, as this is a one-page site – more pages, more loading time. Try to install a cache plugin, and try to find a better hosting. Also, there are tools that can show you what files are loaded too slow (even Mozilla/Chrome inspectors can show you that).

Again, this is an one-page site, designed for small sites, with less content. You should understand that it load all pages at the start-up, and if there are many pages – that comes to be a problem.

Cheers!

Default-user

Hi virusnac and thank you for your answer. I’ll search for all these solutions. I updated my last template colorbow and changed the logo to put a different way with a folder named as my website, that is to say : /images/my-web-site-keyword/logo-my-website-keyword.png in the administration tool (colorbow – styling – custom logo url and small logo url). It worked very well but I wanted to add alt description for these images. Impossible with administration tool, so I modified header.php, added alt to logo images, and it’s not taken into account. How can we add alt description to the 2 logo images ? As well, will it possible soon to make the alt description visibles for images of the slideshow ?

Thank you in advance for your help !!:)

cosmothemes

Hi,

unfortunately we do not have time resources right now, to help you out with this customization. Please make sure you added the alt attribute to this line, in header.php: <img src="<?php echo options::get_value( 'styling' , 'logo_url' );</code> About the slide alts - not too soon. Cheers!" />

Hi virusnac!

Beautiful theme! I have a question before I buy it. I want to use it as a photography portfolio. Is it possible to change what type of content is on the page that slides in from the left? I like the image slider, but I will not always have text below, and I would like to disable ‘related posts’ and ‘comments’. Is this possible? Also, can the image slider be made draggable?

Thanks! – Koen

cosmothemes

Hi Koen,

please note that Colorbow is a one-page theme – it load all the content at once, so you might think twice if you want to use much content, like as a photography website. Colorbow is a nice theme (I like it very much, for example) but it’s designed for small sites, not more then 10 pages. You can try see our photography themes, like Triangulo, Tripod, Fashion.

Saying that, you can insert different pages, like “on front”, and insert in these pages whatever you want. Unfortunately no dragging options. Cheers!

Dear sir/madam,

I’ve got a few questions regarding the Colorbow theme:

- Is it possible to use an anchor tag (hyperlink) in the Homeslider (sub)title? If yes, how? - Is there a way to delay the pagetransitions? If yes, how? - I would like to trigger a fancybox on a portfolio-item instead of launching the sliding sidepage, which is default. Can I change that? - Is it possible to use another .gif on pageload?

I am aware that, if there are solutions, they need to be coded. For me, that’s not a problem, so if you can help in any way I would be very glad. Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

Kind regards,

Thijs de Jong Netherlands

cosmothemes

Dear Thijs de Jong,

it would be a quite complicated task to access slide’s title/description. The question is not how to make the title have an anchor, but how to access it. You can easily add an a href=... directly in the title text box, but you won’t access it because it stays in the back. The background has a negative z-index value, and the rest of the boxes do stay in front. So you have to re-write all the slideshow, and it’s DOM. The slide speed cannot be changed, or at least the library does not have an obvious attribute for that. Fancybox is again pretty hard to implement, we are limited in time resources along toward that.

The preloader can be changed by changing the /images/page-loader.gif’ file. Just keep the filename.

Wish you success with all of the above, and have a great week! Cheers!

Hi Virusnac, I’m sorry for this post because the support is kind, but the theme has some disadvantages that makes me give it up after one year running with colorbow. It’s been one year since I use this template. I’m sorry but I’ll have to change it all for another template. Here are the defaults I had not seen before buying and which make my client doesn’t want to have it anymore. I’ll have to change it by myself for free to keep my client so I’m very desappointed. I note this for people to pay attention to it before doing the same mistake as I made.

1 – It’s a onepage theme so that only one page is possible to index in Google (I managed to do 3 other pages with bottom link but these 3 pages (bottom menu) are not visible in tablets). 2 – The arrows for navigation can’t be seen in some tablets so I had to use dots but when you have plenty of images, then plenty of dots, it’s not navigable and dots come above bottom menu. It would be appreciated for a responsive theme to move to one image to another with touching screen, but here, only dots at the bottom can be used for some tablets. 3 – The images are big in some configuration and small for others configurations – computers – screens : I found impossible to have always an image being nice in all configurations. 4 – You can put big images but not too much, and not too big – heavy : I had some nice images to show so they can’t be nice in 1600×1000 (size recommended by virusnac) if i put them to 20 ko. I had to have images around 100 ko but then the website is much too slow. 5 – The template is really slow : since i began with it, my client said “it’s too slow” : I tried all I Could but I don’t code enough to find out how to better this, and virusnac told me I had to have less images, which was not the wish of my client who wanted to show all his products in big screen 6 – Entering images in slideshow is very long : you have to do this one by one. I would have appreciated to be able to do it by FTP in one shot 8 – Drag and drop to move images is nice when having 5 images, but when having 12 images in a slideshow, we would like to be able to move it more easily, or having 5 images in a line instead of one image per line, which makes it much more long (and having 20 images in a slideshow;..) 7 – Be careful about these points : only one page, one url, not too many images, not images too heavy, long time before the page appears (google likes, as customers, the website appearing quickly)

Moreover, I asked if something could be done to better these problems, even by paying a transaction to support team, but it’s impossible to do this, so I have to give it up. Sorry for you and for me. People who want to buy the theme = OK It’s nice if you don’t have the requirements I have above. People who had the same problems as I had and who found solution, I’m very interested : you can answer here, it will help some persons. Thank you

cosmothemes

Hi Butterfly,

thank you for presenting in detail all your views, although here are my 2 cents:

1. As you said, Colorbow is a one-page site, so it has ONE LINK, therefore one index for Google (sorry but that’s how it works, technically). I think there are some new methods of indexing by hash tag, but I should read about these first. The maini aidea that it is a one-page theme, so one-link for Google.

2. About arrows – I personally do not recall any issue with that – but I am definitely sure we can handle it via a support ticket, and some CSS. Just give us more details on that,like a link to the site, and the tablet we can reproduce the error.

3. Images, for the background, are set as background, and have the cool CSS property “background-size: 99.9%” . That means that, no matter what ratio will have the screen, it will cover 99,99% of the surface. Here are some more options you can use in the Custom CSS http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_background-size.asp . That is pretty tricky though, so you should think about choosing the right settings, for you. But, as i said, is easy changeable via CSS. We can help you out with this.

4. Yeap, that’s a pain when you should use big images (for full screen display) but small in size. That’s basically impossible, as a beautiful image IS big, and that takes time on slow hosting. Especially when you have them a lot. So try to use not too many, and not too big.

5. Colorbow is a one-page theme, therefore it will load all the front-page-elements at first load. That takes time, unfortunately, but that’s how it works a one page. More content – more loading time. Agree with you here too.

6. The method for adding images is limited by WordPress technical support and user knowledge. Of course, when you have many images, that is a really pain.

7. Again, the slideshow is meant for shorter slideshows. Long slideshows are hard to maintain, sorry about that.

8. Agree with you, please know that this is ONE PAGE THEME, friends, and it will load all the content in it’s element DOM. Use it for small sites. More content, more loading time.

If we still can help you out with something, please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home , then write me here the ticket number. I will help you right away. I do apologize if you did not made it successfully with our theme.

Best regards, Nick

Hi Nick and thank you for your detailed answer. You’re right, the theme is a one page and done for smaller websites. If I try to solve some things when coming back on the website, I’ll write to you. I’ll see this in about 2 months. Thank you for your answer and best regards :)

what are the best image dimensions when adding to the slider for the front page?

Default-user

or best ratio ?

cosmothemes

Depending on the screen sizes – if the majority of the users are using screens under 24inches – there is no need to use super-large images. 1920px images should be quite enough. Try to use light images though.

Best wishes, Nick
