Hi Autor,

Can you tell me how I can activate de widgets an the Colorbow theme. I would like to have a social media widgets on the same page of mine introduction page.

Hope to here from you soon.

cosmothemes

You can add widgets to sidebars from Appearance -> Menus. And the sidebars can be assigned from post/page settings, just know that they will not be shown on front page, only only when viewing a single article.

I have purchased the theme, its a great theme but I do have a some questions. 1. I have two teams and would like to center them on the screen, by default they are justified to the left, is this possible? 2. Can I remove the UP and DOWN arrow from the Navigation Bar? 3. I’m having problems displaying sidebars, when editing pages I select left sidebar layout, i then get to select sidebar and save, the select sidebar then disappears and no sidebar appears on the page! 4. Is it possible to change the default font? Thanks

Can you build RTL direction (For Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, and other languages) feature on your themes?

cosmothemes

Most of the times you need to change from the html code the text direction, but some elements have not been tested how they work with RTL languages. Things like slideshows, for example can break if RTL is specified, a quick fix is to specify a LTR attribute for that element.

Pre-sales question:

1. Can you have another page link to something that isn’t published, as an example, for someone to view something privately? Recognize it is a one page website, but wanted to understand more fully.

Anyone want to share a site with this loaded on it and have a separate page that is not part of the main site published?

Thanks! Keith

Purchased- questions: 1. Fav icon- how do we leave it blank for now? Don’t have one and it defaults to yours. 2. Blog- Posts. What is the best way to import them in the home page builder, as I have many and am unclear about how to do this. Seems like I need to do this, one at a time?

Thanks!

cosmothemes

hello

1) You can delete the favicon.ico file located in the root of the theme using an FTP client or adding a file browse plugin
2) You don’t need to import your posts to the theme builder one by one – all you need is to add an archive element that will extract your posts. Follow the screenshot below or follow the documentation instructions:

Thank you!

How about this:

Is there a tutorial on setting up a portfolio to make it look like the demo site?

cosmothemes

Yes, follow the instructions from “XML – import” folder – you should be able to achieve an exact copy of the demo site.

Instead of an exact copy, is there a tutorial?

I created a portfolio, but am unclear how to load the pics? The front page builder interface is different from the blog interface, when you click on edit. Can you do a screen capture or video please?

Thank you~

Hi, electrichi01 Sorry for late reply, but since our team has several days off we’ll get back to our issues as soon as we can. Please, try to have a look through the documentation file or watch this demo video for a very similar theme of ours: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0liEiX8WjU

Hi 10-4 on the pics. Featured image is the key!

Watched the tutorial- at 3:36 seconds, you show a way to have posts come from other directions, other than the right. Looked at the admin panel and don’t see this available? Is this coming in the next release?

cosmothemes

As we told you earlier this video is from another theme that has a different design. At the moment I can’t promise you that Colorbow will have this option.

Reason being, is I also don’t want to overwrite all I’ve done to date.

Ok…how do you get to have an image show up, like in the demo, with the “More” circle?

Realize you need to check off all the categories, inside WP for the images. Still can’t get it to look like the demo…..

cosmothemes

Hi, you need to add a “Featured image” for the blog or portfolio posts you’re adding. Please, check the documentation file for “featured image” article.
To display your posts in the way the demo depicts, you need to use the front-page builder and add a “Post format” element and choose either “latest posts” or “latest portfolios” then choose the layout – grid, list or thumb view.

Hello,

I’d like to buy this one, it is really great.

I have a question: I like the sortable site in the demo. When someone clicks on a picture, there opens a new site with descritiption etc. Is it possible to open just a lightbox picture when clicking on a picture on the sortable site?

Thanks for your help.

Hi, unfortunately there is no such option.

Thank you.

Nice but like the others it loads too slow. People don’t wait even 5 seconds for a page to load.

Hi, Just bought Colorbow.

In the manual and the theme settings, I do not find nor understand where or how to upload my own PNG logo. Can you please point me in the right direction?

Love the theme.

Can not wait to have it live…

  • Is there someone having translated en_US.po in fr_FR.mo ? I translated quickly some words but would be interested please if someone can give me the entire file translated in French.
  • How can I change code for slideshow’s images to adapt to the wide of the screen (computer, mobile, etc.) ?
    Colorbow uses a framework that permits the site to be accessed on all mobile devices, including iPad and Android powered tablets.
      : how do you do for images resizing when using a computer screen or a mobile screen ?
  • I can’t find which resolution is the best for slideshow images when adding them to the medias, for the images to be seen integrally on the computer : 1 366×768 ? 1280×1024 ? What’s the best one you would advise ? Even if I upload images 1280×1024 which is my screenful resolution, I lose 150px to the left and to the right, which are hidden ??? How the theme works with background images ?
  • To navigate through images in slideshow, clicking on the arrows dont do anything, but clicking on the dots works : does it come from my images ? Is it due to misconfiguration ? I checked « enable autoplay » and cant see why the visitor cant click on the arrows to go faster if he wants to ? Would you recommend Background images with less than 500 ko ? Less 100 ko ?
  • Are the meta pages visible for each « page » monsite.com/#Page1, monsite.com/#Page2 : can they be different ? Is there just one page indexed in google or several ?
  • Are the « alt » images visible for google using the slideshow’s images ? When viewing the code source, I see the images urls, but the alt dont appear : So what does I put into Wordpress backend never appears in the code when using slideshow ? Is there a way to change the code so that images in the slideshows shows the alt ?
  • I sow titles of pages are coded “article-title” and not H2 : is it ok for google positionning or must we change the code to have H2 with the titles of pages ?

If you need url’s web site or backend to answer, you can ask it by email.

Thank you for all your answers. Have a good day and a Happy New Year !! ;-)

  • Unfortunately we don’t have such a file
  • Images are loaded with some dimenisons (resized, details about this are in lib/php/image.class.php) and have width/height set from css, using responsive techniques to make it adapt to the device viewport.
  • We recommend to use Full HD images, with good resolution, can be something like 1680×1050 (a little bigger, smaller)
  • Check if you have any errors in the browser console regarding the javascript
  • The pages are open and visible as usually
  • The images don’t have an “alt” value
  • Please open single_content.php and page_content.php, and make the code like this
    <div class="article-title">
                    <h2>
                    <?php
                        the_title();
                    ?>
                    </h2>
                </div>

Hello and thank you for your answers. About javascript, i have many errors. I had some problems trying to have a copy of demo site, when using “XML + Import” : would it be this that made my web site wrong ? Thank you.

cosmothemes

There might be errors when downloading some images while importing the XML (it does this automatically). The error in js apepars ebacuse of the https in the maps embed code.

Default-user

OK I think I’ll reinstall all to have it very clean. When you talk about images 1680×1050, the problem is for screen of 1050×768 for example, you just see the center of the image : how can you make the image take the wide of the screen ? Thank you in advance.

Default-user

OK I watched lib/php/image.class.php but the problem with background images seems to be here : /wp-content/themes/colorbow/css/autoinclude/style.css : the background image is defined like this : .bg-img { padding: 200px; -webkit-box-sizing: content-box; -moz-box-sizing: content-box; box-sizing: content-box; position: absolute; top: -200px; left: -200px; width: 100%; height: 100%; -webkit-background-size: cover; -moz-background-size: cover; background-size: cover; background-position: center center; background-size: 99.9% !important; } @media only screen and (min-width : 320px) and (max-width : 1024px) { /* Styles */ .bg-img { background-size: auto 100% !important; } } If we follow this : https://developer.mozilla.org/fr/docs/CSS/background-size We should have “contain” instead of “cover” : I put contain but it doesn’t worK. Do you know which change I could do with your theme so that the image simply takes the width of the screen, and not the width of the image ? Thank you for your help and answer,

What is the recommended slide size, in MB for the slideshow on the home page?

I have 4 slides and it is pretty slow to load on a computer and slower on an iPad.

Thanks

cosmothemes

Try using a caching plugin as they will reduce the amount for the JS files. The images are recommended to be HD/full HD to look good.

Hello, thank you for your answer before: i’ll come back on these themes on tuesday. Can you tell me how to prevent the menu to move from up ton down with social networks ? My customer doesn’t want this menu to move and hide some parts of images ? Thank you

cosmothemes

Open js/functions.js and comment out/remove lines 313-327, clear the browser cache after.

Default-user

Thank you, I’ll try quickly. Can we have a submenu with the main menu ? I can’t position the sub-pages in the front page builder. When I want to put a submenu with “sort” on the right, to put it on 2nd level, it comes back to 1st level : how do you create submenu then ?

Thank you very much for your answers.

Default-user
Open js/functions.js and comment out/remove lines 313-327, clear the browser cache after.
OK I want exactly the contrary : not the menu to stay down but the menu to appear from the beggining up (we won’t use social networks at the top of the page) and to always stay up. Thank you

Hi again, can you tell me where to find this “XThis website requires capabilities not supported by your browser. Please install Google Chrome Frame Plugin.” and translate it ? + With IE9, my arrows are in another side, as a right angle : how can I correct this ?

cosmothemes

Hi. The text generated from js\jquery.chrome_frame.js. Can not understand the issue with the arrows

Default-user

OK Thank you. Once more for information, the google chrome frame plugin link doesn’t work at all. Have you noticed it ? Thank you for your answer :)

Hi virusnac and thank you for your help, I have a problem of settings with wide images. When screens are very big, it’s ok but when screens are “normal”, the image we see is just the middle of the image, which is just for an image of kitchen, a chair for example. I bought the website because it was “responsive layout”, but the image doesn’t follow the screen : where can i change parameters to have a reaction like this one ? (the image goes smaller when the screen is smaller) : http://www.roche-bobois.com/#/fr-FR/collections/nouveaux-classiques

Will it support dropdown menus?

Hi, just for information, you should change the page 20 of documentation.pdf which talks about “menu just below the default one ” + ” Colorbow – menu” which doesn’t exist in this theme. Thank you

cosmothemes

Thank you.
