One more…is there an easy way to remove the meta data from the individual posts and post excerpts via the control panel, or do I need to do it in page.php (Which is fine, too).

Thanks.

SaurabhSharma

Hello SH,

Post meta information is wrapped inside a div with class name .meta-box. This can be made hidden by adding a rule at the end of style.css file:

.meta-box { display: none }

You can also remove it from core files like single.php and blog-page.php:

<div class="meta-box"><?php cruz_posted_in(); ?></div>

Hi SH,

I would like to know how to get a 960px page using tabs?

I explain, I can’t see the full content of my tab, it seems that the width is too small the show my entire page (content in tab).

Thank you,

Regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello christoux,

Sorry for getting late on reply. (It was my brother’s marriage on 14th and 15th).

Tabs are of auto width. They will inherit the maximum width of page container. If you wish to show a full width tab, it will be required to create a full width page first. For example, create a new page and scroll down to page options panel > Sidebar Placement. Choose ‘none’ from this option and publish the page. This will create a full width page. Next, you can add tabs inside the page content. They will display as full width.

Hello communitasfinancial,

Right now two of my themes are in process of responsive version. Cruz has not came into the queue yet. My apologies, but I will try my best to keep it updated and make it responsive very soon.

Dear Saurabh,

is it possible to use the ‘Revolution Slider’ Plugin on ‘Cruz’? And if yes, what do I have to do?

Many thanks. And again, it’s still a great theme. Werner

SaurabhSharma

Hello Werner,

If the plugin uses a short code, you can simply insert short code inside a page content. Or you can place it inside the “Custom Embed” text area in Page options panel. For custom embed section, it will be required to enable short codes. For that, you can mail me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com along with your header.php file. I will help with that.

Hello I can’t find a documentation to understand how to put my images on the home page

Hello DctGamut,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

You can find documentation inside your_download_zip/documentation/index.html file. Inside this, you can go through various steps described for Home page and Slider setup.

hi, I have another question. I made my slider and to do so created 3 posts with one picture in each post. the problem is, I don’t want google to reference them. I don’t know how to do it? I juste want that google reference my website pages…

Regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello christoux,

In WordPress, it is difficult to prevent certain posts from being indexed into Google. If you wish to skip slider posts, that can be done by adding rel=”nofollow” to slider image links. For that, open header.php file and look for line no. 112 and 166 (for Cycle Slider and Nivo Slider respectively):

112: <a href="<?php if($img_link) echo $img_link; ...
166: <a class="nivo-imageLink" href="<?php if($img_link)

Add rel=”nofollow” to both these links as:

112: <a rel="nofollow" href="<?php if($img_link) echo $img_link; ...
166: <a rel="nofollow" class="nivo-imageLink" href="<?php if($img_link)

I hope this will prevent indexing of image links.

Hello SaurabhSharma,

I purchased this amazing theme some time ago and love it very much. I have a question concerning the nivo slider. I wanted to change it’s animSpeed and pauseTime and modified the values in both the nivo_init.js and jquiry.nivo.slider.pack.js, but with no result. My slideshow is still super fast. I searched the web for answers but found nothing so far. I’d really appreciate your help with this!

Thanks in advance! Nonna

SaurabhSharma

Hello Nonna,

Thanks for kind words and feedback.

I think you did it almost correct. But it is only required to make changes in nivo_init.js file, and not inside the core plugin file. Animation and pausetime are in milliseconds. So an 8 second pause time will be 8000. After saving this file, it shall work correct.

If there are any caching plugins being used on site, it is possible that the old instance of this JS file is still used. This may also happen if you are using any compression or minify plugin. Besides that, it shall work without any issue. :)

Thanks a lot for your suggestions and for explaining the speed. I focused on just the nivo_init.js file and it worked! What I didn’t realize before is that the speed I needed would be measured in many thousands of milliseconds.. :)

Have a great day!

How hard would it be to use the default ‘Featured Image’ box from the Admin Sidebar instead of having to paste a URL into the ‘Featured Image URL’ box under Post Options?

Also wondering if you have a recommended plugin that would work well to create lightbox style galleries on a page or post instead of using the ‘Insert Image with Styles’ shortcode multiple times for thumbnails?

SaurabhSharma

Hello stanny,

The theme needs upgrade for this feature. At the time of creation of this theme, we were still using custom fields for featured images. Later on featured image panels came. I will make this easier in next updates so that no extra URL needs to be added.

For lightbox gallery, you can try this plugin:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lightbox-gallery/

If there arises any issues with this plugin, or any other which you are using for lightbox, feel free to send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Thanks SaurabhSharma, is there a plan for this anytime soon? (i.e within the next month). Cheers for the lightbox plugin as well – much appreciated.

Any updates on this? You mentioned next month, have waited 6+ and really hoping for an update for this. Thanks.

SaurabhSharma

Hello stanny,

Yes I am aware of your request and also about what I said. In addition to the featured image option, there are many other things which needs to be reconsidered. i.e. removal of timthumb, addition of responsive grids, replacement of cycle slider with responsive Nivo Slider, and many other updates.

All these features together may take time, so I will try to place the featured image option first.

Hello Saurabh.

I have changed the standard white background in this theme to a little greyish one by using this code: background:url(images/GrayPap.jpg) The changes are made for .header_wrap, .featured_wrap and .primary_wrap.

So far so good. Now I am also trying to add a Paypal button to a page which requires the following HTML-code:

<form action=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr” method=”post”> <!- Several Hidden Input Fields -> <input type=”hidden” name=”cmd” value=”_xclick” /> <!- --> <input type=”image” src=”https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_xpressCheckout.gif” style=”width:auto; height:auto; border:0;” alt=”PayPal®” /> </form>

Two bad things happens. First there is a white box around the paypal button, seems that it is related to the ‘form’. How do I change the white area around the button so it gets the same background as I am using for the _wrap areas?

Secondly the forms contains several ‘hidden’ input fields. It seems that the more hidden input fields I have the further down on the page the button is positioned. There is therefore a big gap created between the item the button should be positioned right below. How can I prevent that?

Thanks in advance

SaurabhSharma

Hello Albertov,

Kindly send me the URL of page on which paypal button is being used. If it’s under development you can send me URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check source code and suggest appropriate fix. :)

Hi again, I have just found that the ‘active’ state of the tabs does not work for Wordpress Version 3.5.1 – do you have a quick fix for this to get the active state working again?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Stanny,

Yes there is a quick fix. Add this rule at the end of style.css file:

.tabs li.ui-tabs-active a { background:#fff; color:#333; border-color:#d5d5d5; border-bottom:1px solid #fff }

Previously this class name was li.ui-tabs-selected, which was changed to li.ui-tabs-active as of latest jQuery that comes with WordPress 3.5+.

Hello. Really pleased with this theme and have been using it for ages. Unfortunately, I can’t get the password protected pages to work. It works for me on the twentytwelve theme, but not when I switch back to Cruz. I can set a password, but it won’t accept it when I try to login. Can you help? Thanks in advance, Lou

SaurabhSharma

Hello Lou,

Thanks for kind feedback.

I just tested some password protected pages with Cruz and other themes. When you create one password protected page and enter a password, it is stored in cookies. After that, if you will refresh the page it won’t ask for password. But if you change password, or create a new page with password, it will show. I have confirmed that by creating some pages and switching between themes.

It is also accepting password as provided inside Page visibility options. if this doesn’t work, try by deactivating plugins that may conflict with WordPress password protection system. One of such known plugin is Exec-PHP. I hope this one is not installed on your site.

I have WP 3.5.1 and I am trying to get the slider to work on the home page. When I follow the instructions in the documentation, i am able to see the slider (i.e the captions), however instead of the images showing up, all i get is a progress bar. Any ideas? (Cruz v2.1)

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello Sanket,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. If you are seeing only progress bar, this means either images are not getting loaded, or there is some conflict with the slider. Kindly send me your site URL so that I can check the issue.

Sorry for posting again, what I mean is the slider isn’t working. Is it about the timhumb.php?

SaurabhSharma

Hello emoedwin,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Yes it is a timthumb issue. For example, check this image in firefox or chrome. You will see permissions denied error. Make sure you have assigned appropriate permissions to the timthumb script and cache folder as described inside the documentation file.

If that doesn’t work, kindly send me your FTP details at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check it further.

I have one more question on the navigation bar, I would like to make it wider, the text is bigger and change the sub menu width. Which lines of code I can change that?

SaurabhSharma

Hello emoedwin,

Sorry but main navigation bar can not be made wider than the outer box container of the site. If you wish to change other things like font, sub menu styles, etc. you can do so inside style.css file’s section 4. Header > Primary Menu.

Regards

Default-user

ah, sorry! I got mixed up. It is the height of the navigation bar…

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

Height can be set in same section as I mentioned earlier. Inside style.css file’s section 4. Header > Primary Menu:

.nav1 { height:40px ... }
.nav1 li { height:40px ... }

I’d like to have a text box on the front page. Is it possible to reduce the width of the slider and put a text box widget to the right or left of it?

SaurabhSharma

Hello communitasfinancial,

Sorry but that will not be possible (from my side). It will be required to edit core file header.php and reduce the slider dimensions. Next, it is required to create a new widget area in functions.php and use it next to the Slider in header.php. This requires customization, which I can not provide at this time. You can get this done from any developer or freelancer at microlancer.com. :)

Hello Saurabh, I would like to set up photo galleries (no caption, no other info – just the images in 3 columns that can be enlarged and then viewed by clicking on the right or left arrows) but can’t work out how to do this. I think the problem is that on my page options there is a template list that shows 3 and 4 columnar and vertical list but not ‘Classic Image Gallery’ which is on the template list in the Live Preview. Can you please help. regards Lorna

SaurabhSharma

Hello Lorna,

While creating a page using portfolio template, there is a section inside Page Options Panel where you provide category IDs and post per page. Just below that you will see a checkbox as “Hide portfolio captions”. Enable this checkbox and update the page. Your portfolio page will become a classic gallery with only pictures.

Hello, My Twitter Widget no longer displays any tweets. I assume this is from the API change Twitter made. Will you be updating this widget to be functional again?

Many Thanks Bill

SaurabhSharma

Hello Bill,

Yes twitter API was updated to 1.1 and support for old one is dropped now. The new API requires individual authentication key and other parameters which can not be generalized in a widget for multiple users. One of our fellow Authors have created recent tweets plugin which can be installed for showing tweets. Meanwhile I will check the plugin code if it can be integrated with theme.
