I want to change the background color of the navigation bar. How would I do that? Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello deecemobile,

Navigation background is set inside style.css file’s section 3. Structure:

.utility_wrap { ... background:#333 url(images/nav_bg_overlay.png) 0px 1px repeat-x }

Individual link colors can be set inside Section 4. Header > Primary Menu. The selectiors with .nav1 and .nav2 classes are for primary and secondary menu, respectively.

S I found that and changed the background color but it did nothing. That’s why I asked. Not sure why it didn’t work…

SaurabhSharma

Hello deecemobile,

May be you are using the stretched layout. If so, navigation background style overrides inside includes/load_styles.php file, line no. 274:

.utility { background:#333 url(<?php echo get_template_directory_uri();?>/images/nav_bg_overlay.png) 0px 1px repeat-x }

It will be required to change background color in this file too (if using stretched layout).

How do I initiate a CAPTCHA for the form included with this theme?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Jay,

The built in contact form doesn’t have a captcha. But the theme supports Contact Form 7 with recaptcha extension. I have sent you details in reply to your mail.

Hi,

I am about to start my clubs website with this template, just a quick question. The sliding images on the homepage header can these be linked to articles / pages?

And how easy can I update the image and link?

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello holyportfc,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Slider images are shown using posts. When you will create / edit any post for slider, scroll down to the ‘Post Options panel > Slider options for this post’. Here you can provide custom link for the slide inside ‘Slider image links to’ field. You can also choose to show or hide captions, or provide custom captions.

Slide image URL can be provided inside ‘Featured Image URL ’ field of Post Options. You can find more details inside documentation/index.html file’s section 7. Configure Home page slider and content. I hope that will be helpful. :)

Dear Saurabh,

Is it possible to create anchor point to specific tabs? I have previously noticed that every tab takes a random unique id, but is there any way to bypass that setting and create specific id’s for every tab, in order to assign an anchor then?

Thanks in advance,

Regards Dimitris

SaurabhSharma

Hello Dimitris,

Yes that is possible. Kindly send me your cruz/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you the fix.

Hi,

I have added in a custom post type, but when I click on categories etc, its not showing the posts.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jon

SaurabhSharma

Hello Jon,

While adding a custom post type, it is also required to add an archive template for that particular taxonomy. It also depends whether an archive support is enabled while registering the post type. Kindly send me your site link so that I can see if there is anything else.

Regards

Default-user

Hi Saurabh,

Thanks for your rapid support!

I have created the archive page (in this case archive-products.php) and simply copied in code from archives.php hoping this may work but it hasnt.

I have also ensured that archive support is enabled.

Please can you provide me with an email address to contact you privately? – I did find it trawling through all 28 pages of comments in my hunt for a solution but cant remember which page you posted it!!

Thanks again,

Jon

Update:

presumably i simply need to declare the post-type, but unsure where the code is that I need to edit to do this as I cant see it in the archive.php?

have looked in loop.php and functions.php, perhaps I’m being a bit thick! :(

SaurabhSharma

Hello JmAson2k9,

You can send me the site link and your custom post type php files at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check it.

I would like to add page content to the top of my blog template pages. I added to content to the loop however for some reason I can’t use any shortcode in the content. Do you have any suggestions for helping.

SaurabhSharma

Hello able12835,

If you have pasted the content inside core files (template), you can execute a short code using this code:

<?php echo do_shortcode( '[your_shortcode]' ); ?>

I hope that will help.

Regards

Default-user

That’s not exactly what I was looking for. Let me explain. I have a few blog pages that I want some page content on the top of them. I have inserted the following code into the blog-page.php.

get_header(); if (is_page() ) { $page = get_post($page_id); echo “

$page->post_content

”;$page_opts = get_post_meta( $post->ID, ‘page_options’, true ); $category = $page_opts[‘category’]; $post_per_page = $page_opts[‘post_per_page’]; $post_per_page = empty($post_per_page) ? ‘6’ : $post_per_page; }

This has allowed me to place a stationary page above the blog posts. I am using this to help people find relevant content on a very active blog. I would like to get a tag cloud on the top of individual pages. I would use the code that you gave me however I would like it different on every page. I guess I could make more templates but for ease of use I would prefer simply adding the individual content to the page.

SaurabhSharma

Hello able12835,

According to your requirement, ‘Featured Widget area’ can be used to show the content as desired. For example, register an exclusive featured widget area by checking the option inside Page Options Panel of your Blog Page, and update the page. This will register a new widget area for blog page inside featured section. (On the right side of blog page title).

Next, inside Appearance > Widgets, use any widget inside this newly created “Featured Widget Area”. You can use a tag cloud, text widget, or any custom markup as required. If you wish to align this widget area on the left side, that can be done by some CSS changes.

If I was unable to understand your query completely, kindly send me your site URL or screen shot at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will suggest appropriate solution.

Great looking theme. My company is strongly considering it, but we’re interested in knowing whether it can easily be made mobile-friendly? Would WPTouch work? Any other solution?

Thank you!

SaurabhSharma

Hello mcleod9,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

The theme is currently not responsive. It can work with WP-Touch, but there are some features which may not support responsiveness. For example, the sliders (Nivo and Cycle) are not responsive. If you wish, you can browse my recent themes which are responsive. For example, Walk or Xing. These can serve for business purpose and support mobile devices too.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask me. I would be glad to respond. :)

Regards

Default-user

Thanks, SaurabhSharma,

I’ll definitely look at the others you’ve made, thank you.

Any plans to make this theme responsive?

SaurabhSharma

Hello mcleod9,

I haven’t planned it yet, but will give it a try. I will also have to maintain a balance between current design so that it doesn’t affect existing buyers.

Regards

Default-user

Thanks so much for looking at it, I would never expect you to make a change just for one user. I think it’s something that other people might benefit from too.

Your responsiveness and support are wonderful, thank you!

SaurabhSharma

Hello mcleod9,

Yes that feature will benefit others for sure, including myself. I will definitely consider that.

Hi Saurabh,

I installed the WPML plugin. For widget titles and widgets to be multilanguage (French or English) i need to create a exclusive sidebar. I did this by checking the function and publishing the page, but this does not work yet, because i don’t see it appearing on the widget page. (WP 3.4.2 and WPML 2.4.1). Do i need to place extra code somewhere?

Tnx.

SaurabhSharma

Hello leone,

Translation should be directly done as the strings are translation ready. I’m a bit confused on exclusive sidebars being needed for translation. Kindly send me your WP login and URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com, along with the page link on which you have registered exclusive sidebar. I will check it and respond early morning.

Hi,

I have got the site uploaded locally and have selected your theme. How do I get the menus and other pages shown in your online demo?

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello holyportfc,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Menus can be configured inside ‘Appearance > Menus’ section of your WordPress admin. For creating pages and site content similar to live demo, kindly refer to the documentation/index.html file inside your download ZIP. This file also contains instructions on creating Menus.

Important: If you install the download ZIP directly as a theme, menu locations may not save correctly. So make sure you install the theme as wp-content/themes/cruz/ and not as wp-content/themes/your_download_zip/cruz/

Thanks for that. I am working my way through the install and when I upload a slider image I can – Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.

It is a J peg at 1.1mb?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Hi I have sorted the J peg issue. But with the menu headers I have 8 in menu 1 and the 8th menu wants to appear underneath on the next line – how do I change the width of the overall menu bars?

SaurabhSharma

Hello holyportfc,

Thanks for sorting the image issue. Timthumb supports particular file extensions like jpeg or png. It may not support GIF.

For menu, it is divided into two sections—Primary Menu and Secondary Menu. The primary menu is around 70% width of the entire menu bar. If you wish to have menu items expand till the end, it will be required to remove secondary menu. For that, you can add these rules at the end of style.css file:

.nav1 { width:100% }
.nav2 { display:none }

For reference, both these menus are styled inside section 4. Header.

Hi,

Sorry to keep asking questions but how do I get the sidebar to display underneath the menu like on your live previews. It is currently displaying under my header and then the menus appear.

SaurabhSharma

Hello holyportfc,

Sidebar displays below menu by default. On first load it may happen that all widgets appear inside the header widget area or featured widget area. For that, navigate to Appearance > Widgets. Next, delete or pull out widgets from “Default Header Bar”. This will solve the issue.

Hi There,

I have created an images slider as per the documentation, but when i look at the page although the slider is now there the images are not displaying instead i get ’?’ within a box, but i can view the image using the image link in browser?

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello skylabnewmedia,

It seems the timthumb file/folder permissions are not set. It will be required to set following CHMOD values:

scripts = 755
scripts/timthumb.php = 644
scripts/cache = 777

If you have already set permissions, kindly send me your site URL. I will check the source code and suggest appropriate solution. :)

Regards

Default-user

Hi, thank you for your reply, i have set permissions, is it because its on a temp URL?

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello skylabnewmedia,

Yes, timthumb will not work with URLs that contain a tilde sign (~). If your temp URL contains this sign, images will not be generated. Once you shift on to a permanent URL, they will work without any issue.

Hi Saurabh, I’ve seen that PrettyPhoto is installed in your theme but I’m having a problem. I have a link to another website in one of my pages. I would like to use PrettyPhoto to open the website in a lightbox but it doesn’t seem to be working. I’ve also tried to use the “Insert image with styles” feature, although I would like to use a simple word as link and not an image. I chose a picture from the library, I selected the PrettyPhoto style and I entered the link to the website I would like to reach. Even in this case the system fails to open the website in the lightbox. What I get is this message: “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exists”. The image does exists, I can visualise it. The fact is that PrettyPhoto doesn’t open the link. Hope you can help. Many thanks in advance.

SaurabhSharma

Hello gioghersi,

PrettyPhoto in this theme supports external site content. But prettyPhoto does this using iFrames. It can not show site content directly. For example, you can use this code to open a site:

<a href="http://www.apple.com?iframe=true&width=800&height=600" rel="prettyPhoto[inline]">Apple.com</a>

Keep the rel attribute as prettyPhoto[inline]. It shall work fine. :)

Hi, Is there a way to remove the top-right secondary header navigation via the control panel, or do I need to go into header.php and make the change?

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello SH,

Secondary Nav can be removed from header.php file, at around line no. 80:

wp_nav_menu( array( 'container' => false, 'menu_class' => 'nav2', 'theme_location' => 'secondary' ) );

After deleting this line, add this rule at the end of style.css file:

.nav1 { width: 100% }

If you do not wish to remove from core files, you can use these rules in CSS:

.nav1 { width: 100% }
.nav2 { display: none }

Any of these methods can be used to hide Secondary Nav.
