Referring to my previous query…... Hi again, The problem here in the UK is the Disability Discrimination Act. Visually impaired people must have the ability to enlarge text which means they need to zoom in. I really like Complexity and feel that if a fluid Complexity was available I would definitely go with that, however I was just wondering if there was anything I could change in the CSS to avoid the problem being encountered.

Try adding something like this to your Custom CSS :

#menu-wrapper {
    height: auto;
    min-height: 50px;
}
#menu-wrapper:after {
    visibility: hidden;
    display: block;
    font-size: 0;
    content: " ";
    clear: both;
    height: 0;
}

For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS ” option on your theme options page.

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.

Hi Jason,

I need to hide the word “Category:” from my category page header. Any idea how can I make it? Here is the Category page: http://vinicast.com/category/un-ano-en-la-vina

Thanks!

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

This is controlled from archive.php of the theme. You’ll be able to find that text there, I believe.

Do you test your theme with new WP installations and WP_DEBUG set to true? There is a deprecated function (since 3.4) that’s used.

add_custom_background is deprecated since version 3.4! Use add_theme_support( ‘custom-background’, $args ) instead.

Jason,

Do you have a list of the files that your ajax content form are contingent on, and the database queries it makes?

I’ve taken to exporting static html pages out of WPress, and I’m thinking about hard coding this info your contact form, so it will work from a static page, bypassing wpress and the database entirely.

Thanks!

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

The contact form uses an older jQuery plugin called “jQuery Validate” to send the form:

/layout/js/validate.js

And this “validate” function is called from:

/layout/js/custom.js

And the call to the “validate” function ties into this PHP file of the theme to actually send the message from your server:

/sendmail.php

Jason,

Sendmail was the missing piece. Awesome! this works great!

Jason,

I have the Complexity theme on a new site where I work. I have a problem, I need different menus on the left side on different pages of the theme. I have a main menu at the top, and another one in the left sidebar. But the menu on the left side cannot be different for different pages.

How can I do this?

I purchased your Complexity theme, and need some help customizing the portfolio. (Sidenote: I created an account on your ThemeBlvd support site and verified my ThemeForest purchase of this, but it still won’t let me create a topic there)

I would like to be able to order / reorder video posts in the portfolio, rather than the most recently created item showing up first. I’m mediocre at best at editing php, but if you can tell me where & how to edit the code to make this happen, I’d really appreciate it! Or, is there a plugin I should install that won’t interfere with your theme that allows me to do this?

Thank you!

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

I don’t normally provide customizations like this, but this is a question I’ve been asked several times now. I don’t mind giving the code to do it, but I’d like to make sure it’s there for everyone. So, if you can come and post in the support forum I’ll figure out and post how to do it.

Sorry for the inconvenience with my support forum earlier. You registered your purchase and everything correctly, but I just had an error internally with the naming of the theme. If you log back in you should have access to post in the Complextiy-specific support forum.

Hi, I would like the featured image to show on the post and the category page as well as the blog (which nobody really reads) Is this possible? Like this: http://stormwatermanagement.biz/category/course-descriptions/

Not this: http://envirotechservices.biz/category/training/ Thanks in advance!

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

Whether the featured image is shown on the archive pages (i.e. this includes your category page) is determined by this setting:

Stealth > Theme Options > General Settings > Show featured images on archive pages?

Features image already show no matter what when you use the Blog page template.

And the theme has no feature for showing the featured image on single posts. This is a customization you’d need to make. Or you can just insert it at the top when editing your post. If you’d like to edit how single posts are displayed, you can edit single.php of the theme.

Hello,

My site is http://www.novusatlantis.com

My blog page reflects the setup choices I made for the home page while the home page reflects the static page content only. Can you help me straighten this out?

Thanks!

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

Go to Settings > Reading > Frontpage displays, and select “your latest posts”. This will apply the theme’s settings to your actual WordPress homepage. There’s no static page involved at all here.

And for your blog page, make sure you’ve applied the Blog page template to the page you want to use as your blog. That technically would be a static page.

I’m trying to move a WP installation, using your theme, from one host to another and I’m having problems. No menu, No Slider, etc. The provider I’m moving to, ‘Media Temple”, is helping with the problem and suggested I contact you as well.

You can see the site here: http://www.robinhoodproject.org/project/

This is the process I’m using and I have moved several sites successfully, so I don’t fell like I’m missing anything.

http://kb.mediatemple.net/questions/1556/Migrating+your+websites+to+the+%28gs%29+Grid-Service#gs

Hello,

When you transferred your site, did you edit anything in your database? Like the URL of your site?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Yes but only the “WordPress address (URL)”. With Media Temples GridServer you use a Access Domain, in this case “http://robinhoodproject.org.s154449.gridserver.com” when first migrating the site and before moving the DSN records over. It discusses this in the KB article linked to above. Thanks

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

Yup, so that’s most likely the problem, I’m thinking. When you’re editing your database, you need to be careful because so much of the data stored by WordPress is serialized. If you’re not making your edits correctly, you can lose data in that way.

This is a popular tool a lot of people use to safely change the URL strings in their database upon transfer.

http://interconnectit.com/124/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

So, basically you’d export your database from the dev environment and you’d then import into the live environment’s database. (Or you don’t have to do this? Not sure how your host is setting up in making this transfer)

Anyway, so with your database in its current state, temporarily upload that PHP script linked to previously, access it in your web browser, use it to change your URL strings, then delete the file from your server. —

This is one approach. I’m sure there are smarter minds out there than mine that could shed some more light on this topic for you. But it’s a sort of common topic if you search around. This is another reason why a lot of people setup their development and staged environments to actually locally mask the live website domain.

I went ahead and deleted the DB at (MT), created a new DB and re-imported my backup .sql… but still have the same problem. It didn’t seem to make any difference.

This time, I didn’t have make any changes to the DB or WordPress Address, since the DNS is already pointed to Media Temple.

I’m able to logon to WordPress admin and everything in settings looks just as it does on the previous server.

ThemeBlvd

I’m sorry to hear you’re having problems with moving WordPress, but unfortunately this is not an issue I can really troubleshoot for you. None of the issues you’re citing actually have anything to do with the theme specifically. Everything saved to your database that you mentioned are just common WordPress items—Sliders, menus, etc. It’s not like the theme does anything specifically in how these things are put into your database.

The only other thing I can think of is that it would appear your menus and sliders are gone because after you make the transfer, the Complexity theme isn’t activated or doesn’t exist on the new site? Or can’t be found for some reason?—This would make it “appear” these items are gone. But sorry, I can’t think of anything else.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Okay… so what would you suggest, maybe deleting everything and starting over. The only problem is that I’ve pretty much already done this. I’ve re-exported and re-imported files and Databases, even installed the theme from scratch just to make sure it worked before importing my site files and DB. Everything appears to be right in WordPress, the theme shows up and appears to be the active theme.

I’m in the process of moving several sites. Out of nine or ten so far, this is the only one I haven’t been able to import using the process I linked to above. All are coming from the same host provider and moving too the same host provider. The DB I ’m importing seems to importing correctly, etc. Both the export and import of the DB’s with the tools I have, allow for several settings to be made, for instance settings to Structure, Drop Table syntax, etc. I had to play with these settings before I was able to start moving my other DB’s successfully… what are the chances that something needs to be set differently in this process for Complexity 2. I just can’t figure out what the difference is with this particular theme. Once I got the process down, all of the others have moved quite well.

ThemeBlvd

There could be just something up with this database, who knows? But there’s nothing different about the theme. I mean that just doesn’t make sense when thinking about it logically other than the other sites work and this one doesn’t. For example, sliders are just a registered custom post type. WordPress handles all of that. The menu builder also has nothing to do with the current theme other than theme saying, “yes I support it,” and then WordPress including the interface. And if it were something to do with the theme, I obviously don’t have the answer (lol as you can see).

What happens if you create a totally new website with Complexity on a new DB and then make the transfer? Does it transfer though? If so, maybe that’ll also show that it’s just some fluke thing with something in that site.

ThemeBlvd

Hey, another thought. —Have you tried doing a standard WordPress Import/Export of the old site to the new site, opposed to an actual database transfer?

All of the theme’s portfolios and slides are custom post types/taxonomies, so that should be included in WordPress import/export along with all of your posts, pages, attachments, menus, etc. After importing, you’d need to re-configure Theme Options, re-assign your main menu to the proper theme location, and put in your widgets again, but that should be it.

If I go ahead and create a new site (for ether method above) does it matter which version of WordPress and/or Complexity I use for the new installation?

If I make a clean installation with the newest version of WordPress and Complexity, what would I then need to transfer to the new installation? Just the “uploads” folder from wp-content, along with trying to re-import my DB?

Same with trying to do the WordPress import/export, okay to use any version?

Thanks

ThemeBlvd

What version of Complexity are you currently running on the dev site?

And you can hit Reply on your comment to keep our conversation consolidated together.

magdametwally

WordPress 3.2.1 with Complexity 2.2.1.

These are the versions in my current backup.

ThemeBlvd

So, just to clarify; when I said this:

What happens if you create a totally new website with Complexity on a new DB and then make the transfer?

I was eluding to that there might be something funky with the database where you have your backup, not the new site.

But wow, you’re using WP 3 .2 still? That could honestly have something to do with some of the odd problems you’re facing in trying to transfer things, or maybe not, who knows. Have you thought about updating your backup/dev version site first to the latest version of WordPress?

As far as just doing a straight up new transfer of everything, it is best that all of your files match and you have all the same versions of everything. So, I’d just literally copy all of the files from your entire WP install on the backup/dev site to the new site.

I have a tutorial on this process. The checklist at the top my be helpful. (on step #2 of the checklist, see the note at that section in the tutorial)

http://www.jasonbobich.com/web-design/moving-wordpress-to-a-new-server/

And if you were going to take the approach of using WordPress’s import/export, this would probably save you a lot of hassle, and it doesn’t matter what version of things you’re running really.

Note: To be able to import all of your attachments and media, the URL to your backup/dev site must be working so your new site can pull from it and download each image.

On your backup/dev site, you’d go to Tools > Export and make an XML export of ALL content types. Then, you’d do a fresh install of WordPress on the new site. You’d install the Complexity theme, and then you’d go to Tools > Import and import your data. Then, you’d setup your Complexity Theme Options, you’d assign your imported menus under Appearance > Menus, and place any widgets under Appearance > Widgets.

But again, they’ve made a lot of improvements to the WordPress Import/Export process in the last year. A lot of it has to do with the plugin itself, but I’m not sure how much of that corresponds to WordPress core (meaning I’m not sure if things won’t go right with you using such an old version of WordPress—You should always be updating WordPress).

magdametwally

Maybe the helps to shed some light on what’s happening here.

I moved the DNS back to the old server and the site is currently running here:

http://www.robinhoodproject.org

Next I updated WordPress on my new installation, leaving my “wp-content” folder in place and deleting the first DB I created, imported to and updated.

Then I created a new DB and re-imported my backup again… and the site loads correctly. There are a few photos missing, etc., but for the most part, it’s loading correctly.

But when tried to logon to WordPress at the access domain for the new installation: http://robinhoodproject.org.s154449.gridserver.com/project

I’m was redirected to http://www.robinhoodproject.org above. I assumed this is because the site URL in the DB I just imported is set to this domain and I used phpMyAdmin to change the site URL to my new installation here: http://robinhoodproject.org.s154449.gridserver.com/project

This worked and I was then able to logon to WP… however as in the first installation the DB needs to be updated at this point and even though everything seems to go smoothly… when I revisit the site after the update, it’s no longer loading correctly.

I’ve been able to repeat this so the site files and DB I ’m using are working correctly, up until I have to update the DB.

Unless you have a better idea… I will try to update WP and the theme on the old installation before starting over with a new backup of the site files and DB, to see if I have any better luck.

Meanwhile I also have a clean installation of WP on the new server and will try using WordPress’s import/export. to see if this is any easier.

Thanks

“Unless you have a better idea… I will try to update WP and the theme on the old installation before starting over with a new backup of the site files and DB, to see if I have any better luck.”

I just tried updating to WordPress 3.4.2 and Complexity 2.2.2 on the original installation and now I have even worse problems three… I’m not sure what to do any more. Seems like I was okay updating WordPress, but when I updated the theme every thing broke.

Thanks

ThemeBlvd

Ok, so this all has to do with how you’re handling files on your server, and what permissions you’re giving to them (or maybe something happening automatically with whatever process you’re doing to manage files).

For example, look at this file, one of the main files that serves the CSS for the theme:

http://robinhoodproject.org.s154449.gridserver.com/project/wp-content/themes/complexity2/layout/css/core/core.css

Try to view it in your browser, and you will see that your server has restricted access to it. I have no idea why you’d be inadvertently setting permissions on these files that are not readable. Maybe if you contact your webhost they can help to give you some tips on how to handle files on your server and show you how to change the permissions, and help you to keep things like this from happening in the future.

With your FTP client or however you’re managing these files, you need to go through and make sure everything has readable permissions. Generally speaking, this is 644 for files and 755 for directories (but may differ). This obviously wasn’t an issue with WordPress itself because the files were automatically updated for you through the WP admin interface.

magdametwally

I just uploaded a backup of Complexity 2.2.1 to my theme folder and switched from 2.2.2 to 2.2.1 and everything seems to be working again…

ThemeBlvd

Again, just look at the file permissions. That was the issue. It’s pretty cut and dry. It doesn’t have anything to do with the theme specifically or what version it is, etc. Get on top of how you’re handling your files on your server and you should be good to go.

magdametwally

Correct… I understand that and have several options for changing file permissions, ether through the provider, or with Dreamweaver, Cyberduck, etc. I did check on the “core.css” file you found above, and the permissions were incorrect and strangely so (200)… it was also the only file I could find in the entire installation set that way, so I’m not sure what happened there… changing the permissions for the file however, didn’t help.

I have since deleted the entire installation and started over from scratch with a clean installation of WP, a new backup of the site files and I also downloaded and installed “phpMyAdmin” on the original server and made a new backup of the DB… rather than using the “MySQL Administrator” and “Sequel Pro” backups I had tried previously.

I then followed the original migration procedure from Media Temple, that I linked to above, and the move went as well as it did with all of my other sites. The site is now running on the new server, under Complexity 2.2.1.

I am however still having problems updating to Complexity 2.2.2 on ether server (this includes the old installation). I’ve downloaded the latest from ThemeForest and followed your instruction for a “manual update” explicitly, but I’m still having pretty serious problems with menus, page layouts, etc..

The only thing I can really think of at this point is to maybe delete 2.2.2 and try to do the update from within WP, but don’t really see where that’s doing much. Do you have any idea what might keeping me from getting 2.2.2 to run? All file permissions, etc. are set exactly as they are in 2.2.1, file for file. I know it’s not a critical update, but I’m afraid I may eventually have to deal with it ether way.

Thanks

magdametwally

It seems like, the problems I’m seeing are all related to the “main Menu” somehow. Even the page layout problems (i.e.. the actual page content is displaying in a sidebar on every page, while the content area is left blank).

I made some changes to the Main Menu, reassigned the location and now everything is displaying correctly, including the pages.

Thanks.

Hi my name is Cristian Chaves Sorry I feel desperate. I purchased the template Complexity and when in my wordpress install is not seen as in the example with photos, menus, slides ydemás. . The template looks simple my question is, if you have some tines complete the template I simply change photos and texts?

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

I apologize, but you will need to setup your website. Unfortunately this sort of service does not come with purchase of a WordPress theme. Please see your documentation for helpful videos, instruction, and screenshots.

Here’s how to get started:

1) Install the theme.

2) Here is the sample data from the demo you can import if you like from Tools > Import of your WordPress dashboard:

http://goo.gl/8x4Qv

(Make sure to unzip the file and find the XML inside.)

3) Before you start configuring anything, make sure you go to Settings > Reading > Frontpage displays, and select “your latest posts”.

4) Now you can begin to setup everything. Here’s an overview video from your documentation: https://vimeo.com/21047920

If anything is still unclear, you should open up your documentation, where you will find many more videos and a full written guide on how the theme demo’s homepage was setup.

Hi in the template Complexity . Hi I have another question? How do I delete the home page default one. I’ve searched this site into pages, entries, categories and does not appear? My idea is to create a new home page.

ThemeBlvd

Hello,

This is because there is no “page” to delete. If you’d like to override the theme’s default homepage, you’d just create a new static page, and then set it as your frontpage under Settings > Reading.

We have updated our theme, but think you should be aware of a warning from our host regarding the theme files. Quote: “I found a virus hiding in the template files for http://envirotechservices.biz. It was added on November 11, but to be honest I’m not sure how. Everything is pointing to a problem with the Wordpress Theme (template) that you are using called “Complexity”. I’ve been able to clean it up again, but I suspect you may need to reach out to the author of that theme and see if they have any updates or bug fixes to prevent future intrusions such as this.” If you are aware of this and have a fix for it, please let me know. Thanks,

ThemeBlvd

Honestly, it’s pretty insulting that you would even post such a quote in a public forum where I do business that contains nothing but speculation, coming from your webhost that is obviously repeatedly getting hacked and can’t figure out why. And especially after all the help I’ve given you in the past.
