Hi SaurabhSharma, I’m also very interested in an updated theme.

Look forward to the update and keep up the awesome work!

Hello qaid,

I will try my best as soon as I am able to.

Hi,

I have a number of sites using the Cruz theme. On 21st April 2015 Google will remove them from all mobile searches, as the theme is not responsive. Will you make Cruz responsive? Otherwise I’ll need to migrate all of my sites onto a new theme.

Hello Simon185,

I will try and release responsive version within a week, or before. You will not need to migrate to other theme.

Regards

Am working on installing the new update, thanks for this! One question: is the secondary menu no longer part of the theme?

Hello GfromKC,

Yes secondary menu was removed and replaced with a single wide menu. This is better for responsive menu too. You can add the secondary menu links in main menu so that they appear next to main menu items.

Hello Saurabh, My company’s website currently uses the Cruz theme, and it was set up before my time here. I’m trying to do some updates, and I realize that we don’t have the included documentation. I wonder if there is some way I could get a copy of it? It would be incredibly helpful. Thanks!

Hello ReubenTimely,

The documentation file can be found inside main download zip of cruz theme. In order to get latest documentation it will be required to log in to themeforest with the account from which the theme was purchased. You will need to ask Company staff about that account credentials and then log in for the latest updates and downloads.

I’ve upgraded to version 3.2 from version 2. My logo has shrunk on the top left. It seems the default size has been reduced, but when I resize my browser window, e.g., shrinking the window, the logo increases. What can I do to fix this? The logo looks silly on the main page in its new reduced state.

Hello wanza454,

Can I have your site URL please. I will check and suggest appropriate CSS. In the meanwhile you can try adding this rule inside cruz/user.css file:

.brand {
    max-width: 100%;
}

Regards

Hello Saurabh!

I am working on upgrading my site from version 2 to 3.2. I have a few questions:

1. The portfolio-pages now display the content of the blog posts. They didn’t do it in the previous versions. Is there a way to turn it off?

2. How can I create my own color scheme so it shows up in the ‘Theme Options’ ?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your answer Saurabh!

I will add my own color scheme according to this.

As you mentioned I am using the portfolio templates and I have filled in the desired categories. The portfolio template displays the correct posts.

But for each post in the portfolio page, ‘featured image’ is displayed, ‘Title’, ‘Date posted’, ‘number of comments’ and ‘part of the post content text’.

The portfolio pages for version 2 only displayed ‘featured image’ and ‘post title’.

This is a big fundamental difference and would really need to be able to turn off this new information. Is it possible?

I can mail you an image of the differences

Hi!

I have now solved this one by adding a new portfolio-template where the code that adds the additional information is removed

Hello Albertov,

That is the correct way. :)

Regards

Hello Saurabh!

I have two small questions that I hope you can help me with.

1: On a portfolio page, how do I change the size of the ‘Title Text’ (the text right below the picture) ? It is way to big now and I want to do it much smaller.

2: How do I ‘Center’ the same text? Today it is adjusted to the left

Kind Regards

Hello Saurabh!

I am using the latest version of cruz, 3.2.

Unfortunately I cannot get it to work with h2, I have to use h3. Looking at the php-code in the template it says ‘h3 class=”entry-title”’

Am I missing something? I would like to use the correct code so I don’t affect other parts of the theme or future releases by using h3

Regards

Hello Albertov,

I just checked the files again. In all files it is h2 except the archive-4col.php. It seems you are using four column portfolio. In that case you would use h3. I will change that tag to h2 in next update. In order to get both work properly, use the following selectors:

.entry-grid h2.entry-title,
.entry-grid h3.entry-title {
    font-size: 16px;
    line-height: 1.5;
    margin-bottom: 9px;
    text-align: center;
}

Regards

Hello Saurabh!

Yes I was using the four column portfolio. That explains it.

Thanks for the help

Hi, Why did you remove shortcode buttons from Editor ? I update theme few days ago and now i don’t have shortcode buttons in editor. How can i enable them ?

Hello s2prod,

I understand it could be disappointing that the buttons were dropped in v3.0+. But all the shortcode reference can be found inside your theme download’s dummy_data/style_elements.txt and layout_columns.txt file.

If you found the buttons convenient enough, I can send you an updated module which add buttons. For that kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Hi,

I am working on the website of a client and I want to use your support forum. Where do I find his authorization code?

Website: promes-interim.nl

Thanks! Pim

Hello Pim,

Purchase code can be found from the account from which the theme was purchased. i.e. you will need to ask the client (or the person who purchased the theme) for these details.

Hi,

I am rebuilding this website http://www.promes-interim.nl/ for a friend. The theme version on there was too old so a rebuild was required. The current website is on http://www.pimzonneveld.nl/.

I was wondering whether I can recreate the 2 sided menu and how I create a slider which is below the menu!

Thanks Pim

Hello Pim,

Thank you for purchasing the theme.

The two menus are no longer supported now. This is for compatibility in mobile menus. You can simply organize menu items by adding them in same menu. For example, the last 3-4 menu items can be the ones which were thought for the second menu.

For slider, you need to provide category IDs inside Slider settings in Appearance > Cruz Options > Slider. Also make sure, the Home page is created and set as front page. You can find these details inside the documentation/index.html file of your main download archive.

Hi,

I am rebuilding this website (http://www.promes-interim.nl/). Currently I am working on a different url to recreate the website with a live example.

Currently I use a revolution slider for the homepage but it looks way different. How do I setup the Cruz slider?

New url: http://www.pimzonneveld.nl/

Thanks! Pim

Hello Pim,

Setting up Cruz slider is easy:

1. Navigate to Appearance > Cruz Options > Slider. Inside “Category ID to fetch slides from”, provide numeric category IDs to fetch posts from. For e.g. 3.

2. Make sure you have created some posts with featured images which will be shown in slider. The category ID of these posts will be used in point #1.

3. Make sure your Home page is set as front page inside Settings > Reading > Front Page > A Static Page.

If above three points are fine, your site will show the slider on Home page. You can find more details inside the documentation/index.html file of your main download archive.

Hello SaurabhSharma, I would like to come back to using this amazing theme after being inactive with it for about 2 years. This lives me with a bunch of questions after having updated the theme to the latest version. But the first thing I would like to ask is if it is possible to renew support via credit card? Thanks in advance! :)

Hello Nonna15,

Thank you for renewing the support.

1. For the logo width, navigate to WordPress admin’s Appearance > Editor. Click on user.css file from the list of files on rights side. Inside editor, paste the following rules at the end of file:

.brand { max-width: 100%; }

Save these changes. Next, check the site by clearing browser caches so that new changes come into effect. This shall solve logo width issue.

2. The theme’s responsive feature can be disabled by navigating to WordPress admin’s Appearance > Cruz Options > General > Disable responsive.css file. Enable this checkbox and save settings. The theme will become fixed width on all devices.

Hello Saurabh, thanks a lot, everything worked perfectly! Could you please also suggest how to regulate the banner margins, I would like to make the banner area a bit smaller to better fit the logo. Thanks you! :)

Hello Nonna15,

In order to re adjust logo and banner widths, kindly add these rules inside user.css file via Appearance > Editor:

.brand {
    max-width: 25%;
}

.header-widget-area {
    max-width: 74.5%;
}

You can keep 40% for .brand and 59.5% for banner area. Or any other value as required. the 0.5% is the gap between logo and banner.

Hi,

It seems like a padding is on top and below my header, creating a wider header which leads to the buttons falling of my homepage. Is there a way to adjust this?

website: http://www.pimzonneveld.nl/

Hello pimmesz,

Log in to WordPress admin and navigate to Appearance > Editor. Next, click on the user.css file and add this rule inside the file:

.header .wrap { padding: 0 30px; }

Save these changes, and check the site by clearing all browser caches. This will remove the top and bottom gap from logo image.

Regards

pimmesz Purchased

mmmm i dont think that fixed it! Cleared my browser cache to be sure

Hello pimmesz,

The copied rules are wrapped in pre code. See http://prntscr.com/atlypw . You need to paste the CSS as plain text. While copying the code from comments section, the pre tag generally gets copied. :)

After installing the theme and upgrading to php 7, I’m getting the following error on my server:

PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[’, expecting ’,’ or ’;’ in /var/www/domain.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/cruz/functions.php on line 30

Any idea how to fix this so the theme works again?

Hello globalninja,

Sorry for this inconvenience. Yes, the code is already been prepared for php 7. I will be releasing the update soon. In the meanwhile, kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you the necessary fix.

Hello, can I update wordpress 4.5.1? or it is preferable to wait for the update of the theme? Regards

Hello robymit,

The theme is compatible with WP 4.5.1. However, it is not yet compatible with php 7 or above. So the next update will be specific to php compatibility. You can safely update WordPress to 4.5.1 as your php version seems lower than 7.

Hi!

Awesome theme!

I have a question. One page has a few images. They load very slow after I already optimalised them with another plugin. Is there a lazy load setting or another way to make them load faster?

Page: http://www.promes-interim.nl/interim-management/interim-opdrachten/

Thanks! Pim

Hello Pim,

The images are not optimized on that page. Each image is around 5000px large with around 3 MB size. You will need to reduce image size and save them in web optimized format. If you want all images optimized, I will give you a short link:

1. Click on Google PageSpeed Results of your site.

2. Click on the “Desktop” tab. Then scroll down where you will see “Download optimized image, JavaScript, and CSS resources for this page.” Click on the link. A zip file will be downloaded which contains all optimized pictures. You can upload them to the page.

Regards

is there a standard plugin for this?

Hello Pim,

Yes there are quite a few plugins for this functionality.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/ https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-smushit/ https://wordpress.org/plugins/cw-image-optimizer/

If the manual work is not too much, I would recommend avoiding plugins and upload an optimized image. :)

I have purchased and installed your Cruz theme for our business website. We love it and it’s been great but I recently had to create a new login for this site and so any previous purchase I have made does not show up.

We have been recently contacted by people stating that our site isn’t in compliance with Googles algorithm on how our site shows up across different platforms and we aren’t showing up.

Is there an update to the theme? If so, would I be able to get it or will I need to pay for the theme again?

Hello Nancy,

The Google’s algorithm compliance is mainly for responsive feature. The theme has been made responsive in recent updates. You can check live demo. But you will be able to download updated version only from the account from which you purchased the theme. If you have lost login credentials, you can send a ticket to Envato staff and get the account recovered. That will save you from purchasing another copy of theme. :)
