Hello Thanks for your quick answer, I definitely appreciate your style : ) So my questions goes for your theme Volt (fonts and image background) I’d like to make a blog about writing / screenwriting and would really like to make it dynamic, collaborative and original. I guess you see what I mean (not just another writer who bought a wp theme…) Furthermore, is it possible for you to even more customize a theme, with a complementary fee, to get something even more customized. If necessary for details or fees, my mail omeyer.marc(dot)gmail.com Thx and regards

Hello there,

Thanks again for showing interest in Volt theme. If you have basic CSS knowledge, you can turn this theme into specific needs. For example, check this site.

Regarding customization, I can help and assist with basic CSS or theme setup/configuration issues. I do not provide paid customizations.

I can not get the slider to work. I do not see the “add custom fiends” option under the html area of posts.

Please advise!

SaurabhSharma

Hello itwasbo,

Custom Fields panel may be off by default. You can enable it by clicking on the “Screen Options” tab on the top right corner of the page/post. Inside this panel, enable “Custom Fields” checkbox, it should appear then.

That is exactly what it was. Thanks!

Hi we want to slow the home page slider down. Have tried increasing the pauseTime and it has had no effect. Do you have a workaround?

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello illumineconsulting,

I just checked the source JS file. The slider pause time is set to 5000. Means the slide will change after 5 seconds (which is happening). If you change this to 10000, the slide will change after 10 seconds. It’s that simple.

For slide speed and pausetime, it is not required to edit the plugin source file. We can do so by just changing the parameters in slider function call as I mentioned earlier. For your reference, the slider plugn file is included. You can find it inside combat/js/jquery.nivo.slider.js.

If this doesn’t help, kindly send me your FTP details at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will change the speed and time. (Also mention what speed and time you wish to have).

I’m so sorry!

You were absolutely correct. I didn’t read your post correctly. Once I modified the custom.js file everything started working.

Thanks!

Hello illumineconsulting,

No problem. I’m glad I could help you.

Do you have an online demo? I never by themes until I’ve seen them working, and the problem with images is that you can’t really get a feel for the theme.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Moonworks,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

I have disabled online demo because this theme needs significant updates for recent WP versions. I would recommend looking for more recent themes that support latest code and WP. My apologies for this inconvenience.

Thanks for letting me know.

I’ll add it to my bookmarks and check back again at a later date :)

Hey, dude.

I am just having a problem with my Facebook and Twitter link, in the Footer.

Before the twitter link cames my domain link, so, doesnt work.

Take a look: http://s10.postimage.org/qt9va19e1/Untitled_1.jpg

How can i fix that?

Thank you very much.

SaurabhSharma

Hello felipebressane,

Inside theme options, make sure you have provided full link to twitter profile. for example, http://twitter.com/username. That should show the links in proper manner. You can also check by disabling any newly installed plugins. if that doesn’t work, kindly send me your WP login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check it.

Hello SaurabhSharma,

You gave me some help previously with my slider speed. I am hoping that you can help me again!

I have transferred my site to another location and everything works except the images for my slider. http://66.147.244.141/~steshelt/

Some troubleshooting led me to look at source code for the slider, TimThumb is calling an error for locating the image files – even though the source location is correct (a simple cut and paste shows the image just fine).

Thanks! illumine consulting

SaurabhSharma

Hello illumineconsulting,

Timthumb script doesn’t work with temporary URLs. (The ones that contain a tilde ~ sign. Your images and location is perfectly fine. But it’s with the URL containing tilde. Once you shift to permanent URL , it will start working normal.

If you wish to make it work with temporary URL , there is a small worakaround. You can check it here. If you find any difficulty in making this change, kindly send me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you the fix.

Hi it is not letting me install this theme on wordpress ? Can you help me fix this problem!

SaurabhSharma

Hello pranpiru,

May be you tried to install your download zip directly. It will be required to unzip the download first. Next, look for the folder named ‘combat’. You can zip this folder and upload to the WordPress.

If you find any difficulty, you can drop me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Hello again! http://www.steshelter.org/

I got my client’s site transferred to the permanent domain name without a problem. The site was working beautifully, and then someone made a modification somewhere.

My problem now is the navigation menu. It lines up perfectly in Google Chrome, but in FireFox the nav menu is pushed way up, and in IE it’s so high on the page it’s off the visible screen.

Can you help me fix it?

I do have a back up that I should be able to copy over that would fix it, but it won’t help me understand what they did to cause the problem.

Thanks so much!

SaurabhSharma

Hello illumineconsulting,

I just checked the site in FF 3 .6, latest Chrome and IE8 . In all these, the menu appeared same (aligned baseline with the logo). You can try by clearing browser cache. If you still see this issue, kindly send me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com, along with the browser name/version.

Hi SaurabhSharma,

I am having trouble with the tabbed accordian sidebar options on my site. The titles of the sidebars are not showing up in IE. It seems fine in all other browsers. Can you help at all? http://dunshaughlinphysio.ie

Thanks, Marie

SaurabhSharma

Hello Marie,

I just checked the site in IE 7 , 8, and other browsers. Accordion titles seem to work fine. Not sure if it’s already fixed or you are still seeing this. As far as I know, this problem could be due to old Cufon file. You can update combat/js/cufon-yui.js file with the latest one. The earlier version is 1.09, whereas current one is 1.09i.

Though I am seeing the titles fine, I hope this new file shall fix it at your end. If not, kindly send me a screen shot and browser version at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Hi SaurabhSharma,

I purchased your theme over a year ago and was wondering whether you were planning on releasing an update some time… The code is now two years old and a lot of functionality in Wordpress has changed, for example the featured images in posts in stead of using custom code…

Thanks for a short reply, would be really great to see this theme revitalized and with some fresh code!

SaurabhSharma

Hello titushanke,

I agree with your point. The theme uses custom fields and code which is too old for latest WP versions. Revising it may not solve the purpose unless I recreate everything from scratch, based on the same design concept. I will consider about it.

Thanks for your quick reply. Just to put things into perspective, i would be willing to pay for a new version, as i do understand you can’t do lifetime upgrades for free!

I could imagine there would be more folks thinking like me. You nailed it at the time with a cool design which is still cool today, you can do it again :-)

SaurabhSharma

Hello titushanke,

I respect your consideration. If a renewed version is released, it will definitely get sales again. For that, I shall not take any extra payment from my existing buyers.

I try to release updates as long as it is possible. This theme just reached it’s saturation point, and the reason for still keeping it in portfolio was for existing buyers. I shall find some time and try to re-build it again.

Regards

Hi SaurabhSharma, I was just about to ask the very same question about updates and this theme’s compatibility with the latest Wordpress installation.

I would very much like to keep this theme running on my site, so in the meantime, is there any advice you have, or information you can point me to, for the best way to keep this theme secure?

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello murraydrive,

The theme is compatible on latest versions, but it’s features and method of using code is old. For example, it uses custom fields for images (as opposed to featured image option). I will try to update these things. For any theme help and future reference, you can always reach to me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Hi Saurabh Sharma,

Shortly after I upgraded to the latest WP version I’m getting this error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function register_handler() on a non-object in /home/looksit/domains/looks-it.nl/public_html/wp-includes/media.php on line 953

Please advice.

Thanks!

Hello Stefan,

I just replied to your email. It is required to update timthumb.php file inside combat/scripts/ folder.

Hi SaurabhSharma I did the update on the Combat file and I lost all the formatting that I had previously done in the stylesheet. The bar at the top and bottom is now gray, I had changed it to turquoise. When I look for the stylesheet it isn’t there. I can only see this:

* Theme Name: COMBAT Description: COMBAT is an elegant Modern layout, best suited for personal, portfolio, blog or Business website. Version: 1.0 Author: Saurabh Sharma Author URI: http://saurabhsharma.net Tags: Modern, Elegant, Corporate */

Can you tell me how to change the color of those 2 horizontal bars please? thanks Laura W

SaurabhSharma

Hello Laura,

All theme styles are set inside main.css file. Depending upon which layout/scheme you are using, open their respective main.css file. For example, if using dark-780 layout, open combat/css/dark-780/main.css and make changes in it. There are four separate folders inside combat/css/ directory which contains four main.css files for different layout/schemes. It will be required to edit only the one which is your current layout/scheme.

Dear SaurabhSharma

I’m getting a lot of strange things on www.northcaicos-everything.com. I think I need to reinstall Wordpress and the Combat template. The files are coming up domain.com/wp/files – I had corrected that in the beginning but it is back now. Then in the Posts area http://oceanbeach.tc/restaurant-bar/special-events/, the posts don’t come up. On the home page the titles are coming up under the wrong pictures. There is probably more, it keeps changing everytime I look at it. Is there a way to re-install everything so I don’t loose all my work? I’m not a programmer so I need some basic instructions. thanks for your help. Laura

SaurabhSharma

Hello laurw,

I just checked the site. It seems to work fine at my end. The posts, home page, picture captions, etc. looks fine.

I would not recommend re-installing everything. This will increase a lot of work for you. If a problem with URLs occur, you can simply reset permalink structure inside WordPress Settings > Permalinks. Or you can also try by disabling some plugins temporarily and checking the site again. You need not re-install everything.

If I go to the restaurant specials and try to open a post via (more) I see this ” Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDIF in /home/oceanbeach/www/www/wp/wp-content/themes/combat-wordpress-edition/combat/single.php on line 24”

I may have deleted a wrong line when I was trying to get rid of comments (which I have not succeeded in doing yet)

SaurabhSharma

Hello Laurw,

You can revert back to the original single.php file and then remove only line no. 59:

comments_template( '', true );

If this doesn’t work, kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you single.php file with comments removed.

Hi there, I know I have asked for this a couple of times already, but don’t you think it is about time to update the theme? There are certain SECURITY VULNERABILITIES given this is now two years old…. Please consider updating it to also make use of WP 3 features such as featured images, which the theme currently doesn’t support…

Appreciate it, I would even pay another 50 bucks to get it updated..

SaurabhSharma

Hello titushanke,

I agree with you. The theme is still using custom fields for featured images which is quite old feature now. I will definitely update it. For security, kindly update scripts/timthumb.php file to the latest version. This is more secure and not vulnerable. My apologies for long due update.

Thanks, I did that after my site got hacked a few months ago… :-(

I still think you should do this soon, or you will have very unhappy customers who buy your theme and are disappointed that is doesn’t support some of the new featrues. It still works, but it’s cumbersome to set-up and the timthumb is definitley a security issue as I can confirm from own experience…

Would also appreciate if you could make it repsonsive, shouldn’t be too difficult…

Thanks!

Beware this theme is very old! It hasn’t been updated in year! Unfortunately, I have to say, as I would love to see this updated…

SaurabhSharma

Hello titushanke,

My apologies for the delayed updates. The theme is on a stage where it needs re-coding from base. There is no scope of update but it can only be re-coded from starting. Unfortunately, it is not feasible to spend the amount time in re-coding in which a new theme can be created. Furthermore, this theme has not been sold a single copy from past 6 months. I have only kept this for portfolio record and buyers to check comments. The only option is to remove it from portfolio so that no new purchases are made.

If you need any help related to this theme, you can contact me directly at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will continue to provide support to existing buyers.

Hello,

I would like to ask about this theme. Is it still has any issue so far like the logo and post and title allignment or anything Cause I’m thinking about getting this theme but seem you don’t have any demo ? cause I want to make this theme as a personal blog but I need to know about the blog type that this theme can go, can it be as a single post from top to bottom without any side bar ?

if you can give me some demo for this theme that would be awesome.

SaurabhSharma

Hello enricotransindo,

Thank for browsing the theme. The theme is old as compared to latest methods and functions used. I would recommend browsing a more recent theme as this one is not updated from quite some time. I can not assure you if it will be updated any time soon, so it is better to browse more recent ones. :)

Regards
