Hey there, Beautiful theme but having some difficulty navigating it. I can’t get the full screen slider to show. And when I click on my pages nothing happens; how should the reading settings be? Should there be a home page? www.davidtaylorsharp.com

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

No, the Slider controls are avaliable at your Dashboard – Creative – Slider Manager.

There you just want to add your images, not more than this.

About the pages, are you adding your pages in our Page Manager? You can find if in Dashboard – Creative – Pages

There you want to select your pages and organize in the way you want.

Do I set the homepage as a static page ? It’s all formatted wrong!

XiaoThemes

You’ll just add as a default page.

If you’re having weird issues, please open a ticket here – http://xiaothemes.zendesk.com/ and we’ll be glad in help you to figure out your issues.

What’s the optimum size of the home page slider?

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

I used images with 1400×900.

Hey awesome theme! Thanks for the hard work. How do I remove the slideshow thumbs box on the home page so that the only box at the bottom is the message box? I still want the background slideshow to play, just with no controls.

XiaoThemes

Hi mate :)

Thank you for your words, we really appreciate this.

About the autoplay in slider:

You need just change one line at one file.

Go to the file xiaothemes_creative/script-photo.php at line 85 that looks like this:

var autoSlideOnInit = false;

Change it to:

var autoSlideOnInit = true;

Done :3

Now, to remove the box of thumbnails, you can create a custom CSS rule… Go to Dashboard – Appearance – Editor. In the end of the file that appears in the editor (style.css) add these CSS lines:

#thumbs {
display: none;
}

Then go to the file script-photo.php and add a space at the line 22, in this blank space add this code:

$bottomAlert = "30px";

Just note that this value adjusts the distance from bottom, if you want more distance increase the value but keep the ‘px’.

Cheers and thank you for your purchase.

I purchased this theme but the pages aren’t reflecting the line break or paragraph breaks. all of the copy just runs together. Suggestions?

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

Are you using the Layout Builder?

Cheers, Rafael Angeline

Default-user

No, I’m not. Do I need to?

XiaoThemes

Hi.

No, but I recommend to do it. Sure that if you don’t like, you can use the normal Editor.

The break line you say is when you hit enter right? Did you try hit the Enter twice?

Cheers, Rafael Angeline

Default-user

You can see what I mean at http://www.thedeadwalker.com/ when you click on Short Story… it all runs together…

Hey, there, didn’t hear back on my last response, so I just wanted to nudge this as I really want to get this live.

XiaoThemes

Hi,

sorry for the delay, the team has been increased now to be at your service! :) Do you still have this problem? It looks like you solved it by now. Anyhow, for everyone else: you can force paragraphs by adding this between two paragraphs:

<p> & n b s p ; </p>

Write the nbsp thing without empty spaces.

Thanks for the reply. I think that’s a terrible solution. I’ve never had to do that with any of my other themes. :-(

how this contact form works ? i want to change mail id where the contact form data goes.

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

Just go to Dashboard – Creative – General

Then change the field called “Contact Mail” to your mail where you want to receive messages.

I am finding many issues with this project.

You say that you can create as many pages as possible. You also state that this theme doesn’t support widgets.

I don’t see how pages are nested. So, whilst you are correct in stating we can create as many pages as we like – how do we display them in the menu system

1) Unable to nest pages 2) This theme doesn’t support the Wordpress Menu System 3) This theme doesn’t support widget areas.

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

I don’t know if you saw our videos, but doesn’t matter. You want to add the pages you want, then go to Dashboard – Creative – Pages.

At this page you can control the menu pages without any trouble.

Cheers, Rafael Angeline

Default-user

I have watched your videos. It maybe a better solution if we ask simple questions.

How can we create child pages on the pages menu so that I can have a parent menu element and a number of child elements displayed when I hover over the parent menu item.

Hi,

sorry for the delay, the team has been increased now to be at your service! :) this theme does not support second level menu items, sorry!

Is it possible to create and display multiple blogs.

I would like to create and display a blog as News

and Create a second blog area and display as Competitions

I only see an option to display 1 blog without categorisation

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

No, only one blog.

We’ll add categories filter support in the next update for you :)

When is the next release date? What updates will be included?

It appears there are some basic Wordpress features that have been excluded from this project.

Customisation of this theme isn’t straight forward and it is proving difficult to create a child theme for custom features.

There also seems to be an unnecessary delay answering technical questions – non technical questions are answered fairly quickly

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

As you see isn’t a common theme, so you need a bit of time to learn how it works before try create a child theme, see the files and everything to understand better, we’re here if you have any issue.

But you can customize the rules editing the .php files in the /css folder and then going to Dashboard – Creative – Colors. Click in Save all Changes to refresh the CSSs.

Or the better way is add custom rules going to – Dashboard – Appearance – Editor – and add your CSS rules there in the end of style.css file.

Your last comment here is from 12 hours ago, so I really can say that this is a really reply time.

I am developer and I’m pretty sure that given sufficient time I would be in a position to create a child theme. However, as I stated – it isn’t straight forward and it isn’t something that a basic user or a junior developer could achieve. I’m not even convinced that it could be achieved without changing the original theme, which means that it isn’t child theme ready.

The issue isn’t with css files, the issue is with making changes to the file structure. For example, you can’t include the header.php file in a child theme due to a require_once element at the start of the file – and this is just the start of the issues.

As for my comment about delays. I sent you a couple of questions to your private forums. I don’t like discussing theme errors or problems in public. I outlined some programming errors and I even offered to help you – to date you still haven’t replied to those issues.

I was forced to publish my concerns on Theme Forest.

For what it is worth, the design looks very nice and Pezflash has done a great job with the original html files and the design – Creative Single Page Portfolio.

I think this development has been rushed and missed out some crucial elements.

I purchased this theme to do a quick job. It is taking more time than its worth to sort it out. I am very disappointed.

1. How can I set the background slider to automatically change? 2. How can I make the links bigger? 3. How can I change the colour of the title text?

XiaoThemes

Hi :)

About the autoplay in slider:

You need just change one line at one file.

Go to the file xiaothemes_creative/script-photo.php at line 85 that looks like this:

var autoSlideOnInit = false;

Change it to:

var autoSlideOnInit = true;

Done :3

The item 2 and 3 would require custom rules that overwrite the current styles of theme.

I can’t create a link from one page to another. For example, I place a link in the content of a page, pointing to Projects and it doesn’t work, no matter what I do.

Do I miss something?

Thanks for all of the support! Everything that you replied with was very in depth and easy to take care of. I am about 94% finished with my site and I have two final questions for you: 1. How do I lower the transparency on the black background that the page content is sitting on? 2. On my “About Page”, in the bottom left corner, i have made a link “SEE HOW WE ’RE DIFFERENT .” I would like it to act the exact same way that the “Process” navigation tab does. So when you click it, the page slides over to “Process.” I tried putting the exact link in, but it does nothing. http://www.andrewsailer.com/wyman/

Once again, thank you so much for all of your creative, hard work.

Andrew Sailer | ASCD www.andrewsailer.com

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

Glad you appreciate our support :)

To turn the background more transparent you can add few custom CSS going to Appearance – Editor – and adding to the bottom of the file these lines:

#base {
background: url("") repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7)
}

Change the 0.7 to a value between 0 and 1.

About the 2nd item…

Our team is fixing the link between pages yet, but the URL should be something like this – “http://www.andrewsailer.com/wyman/#process”

After the update this bug will be fixed with all the sure.

Upon installation, Chrome is giving me an uncaught error on a couple of the scripts. Does the theme require a root Wordpress installation?

I want to add a custom menu other than the add pages option where i should be able to add categories and projects to the menu. I tried different ways creating a menu but that doesnt display even if selected. the other problem i am facing is that whenever i make the changes to the add pages options in the theme ,my CSS which i applied for my looks ,disappears and the previous CSS file is restored. Why this is happening?help will be strongly appreciated. Thanks

XiaoThemes

Hi guy :)

About issue 1. this theme only supports creation of menu by our Dashboard – Creative – Pages

About issue 2. You want to edit the .php files instead the .css, these .php files are the base to generate the .css files.

If you are using architect layout, edit the architect.php file and if you’re using photo layout, edit the photography.php file.

After edit, go to your Dashboard – Creative and click in save to refresh the CSS .

Thanks for all the replies! Good to see you here. Is it going to be difficult to make the menu bigger? It’s just a bit small on the page at the moment.

XiaoThemes

Hi.

Do you mean about the font-size of menu? Maybe you can create a CSS , let me know if you need help doing this :)

One final thing: I am having two problems. 1. There is a red box appearing around the site. No idea why. http://s12.postimage.org/jr5tpepul/Screen_Shot_2012_08_21_at_21_43_07.png 2. When I drag the window larger the slider is resized cutting parts off http://s10.postimage.org/nic6jvnqh/Screen_Shot_2012_08_21_at_21_43_21.png

How can I fix?

XiaoThemes

Hi mate.

Hello,

I have problems with the Slider. I added the pictures and thumbnails as shown in the tutorial. When I open the page it shows no slides, just the title, the menu items and a black background. Below the title is an error code: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /kunden/370650_60327/webseiten/wordpress/wp-content/themes/xiaothemes_creative/index.php on line 121

How can I activate the Slider?
