There is a wierd filter on the slideshow images, how can I take that off?

CuckooThemes

Hi amorse,

Thanks for purchasing our theme :)

As for your question. To remove overlay effect over the slides you should edit this image file: cuckootap/images/overlay.png

Open file / select all (ctrl+a) / then click delete / save file / upload updated overlay.png file online

If you need help with editing this file, please use contact form in our profile page on Themeforest.

At the moment this is the easiest way to do it.

Help! In addition to the strange filter on the slideshow images, they are also distorting on transition to the next frame so that they grow slightly taller. I’m on chrome. Not sure if that makes a difference. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!

CuckooThemes

Hi amorse,

The recommended minimal image size for slideshow images is 1224×660 pixels. We suggest using images of the same size to make animation flow smoothly.

Let us know if you still have any issues with the slideshow.

Sorry to ask a zillion questions but:

1. How do you get the contact page to appear in the Nav? 2. I tried to upload a picture for the logo, but a border still appears around it, is there a way to take that out? 3. The diagonal filter I still can’t seem to get rid of on the slideshow, can you help me with that? 4. The image resizing thing I got so skip that question:p

CuckooThemes

Hi amorse,

1. How do you get the contact page to appear in the Nav?

CuckooTap theme supports two menus: Header Navigation Menu and Footer Navigation Menu. Choose which menu appears in each location using WordPress custom menus feature, go to: Appearance > Menus.

More detailed information about WP Menus can be found in theme documentation file on pages 31 and 32.

To add Contact unit to navigation menu use #contact (in case contact unit is displayed in every page) or as shown in the example: http://www.yourdomain.com/#contact (in case if contact unit is displayed only in homepage)

2. I tried to upload a picture for the logo, but a border still appears around it, is there a way to take that out?

Please send us a link where we can see that issue.

3. The diagonal filter I still can’t seem to get rid of on the slideshow, can you help me with that?

Answer to this question is posted below. Anyway let us know if you need any help with this.

Having a hard time making my navigation links function as the one-pager. In other words, when I click on a link from a new page it reloads to a new page and doesn’t scroll down automatically like the preview of this theme. Any help or advice?

CuckooThemes

Hi gcaifano,

Thanks for purchasing our theme:)

Menu URLs linked to your homepage units (you should add them using WP menus tab in the dashboard) should be as shown in theme documentation homepage builder examples on page 18.

For example: 1. Let’s say that your homepage unit name is “Company”, the link to this unit should be http://www.yourdomain.com/#company

2. If your unit name consists from more than one word, let’s say, “Our Company”, the link to this unit should be http://www.yourdomain.com/#our-company

Hope this helps, please let us know if you need more assistance.

Hi, thanks for this cool and well designed theme.

I have a couple of questions:

1. what kind of anti-spam measures do you have for the contact form? Our website, where we use the theme, is already getting 30+ contact form spams/hour, and we need some form of anti-spam solution. How can I implement that?

2. We also use the team feature of the theme. However, non of the LinkedIn buttons show up (twitter does). How should the LinkedIn URL look? i.e. what should be inserted for LinkedIn links to show up?

CuckooThemes

Hi kairoer,

Thanks for purchasing our theme:)

1. Please try to install Akismet plugin. This should help www.akismet.com

2. Linkedin URL should look as usual url. You found a bug and it will be fixed in upcoming theme update this week. Thanks for notifying.

Thank you for the quick answer :) I appreciate that!

1. We are using Akismet. I am also considering other anti-spam plug-ins, if they work. Do the template use standard WP functionality for sending the form? If so, I should be able to fix this myself. If not, can you please elaborate how it works?

2. Thanks :) I am looking forward to the update.

The website in speak is: http://thecloudsecurityrules.com – I think the theme is a great one for this!

Hi kairoer,

Yes, the theme template uses standard WP functionality for sending form. Anyway let us know if you’ll need any help with this.

Hello CuckooThemes,

I love CuckooTap and would like to use it for my sister’s restaurants which has 2 branches.

Question:

How can I use your CuckooTap and make the landing first page like you have on the demo site with Light VS Dark version?

I am just new to wordpress, html, css, php and so on, but I can do some simple stuffs changing codes. Do you think you can help me out with this?

Thank you!

EXCELLENT Theme =) I am truly in love, Well done!

I have one question for you and one suggestion.

Q: I believe it is possible to insert a featured image to pages set to the default template, but whenever I attempt to attach a featured image it never shows up on the actual published page. Am I missing something? Same problem with posts, am I not checking a box hidden somewhere in the settings to activate this? a nice featured image appears on your short-codes page, this is what I am trying to achieve.

S: Almost everything on this theme is optional or can be changed directly from the backend which is WONDERFUL. I am setting my site up for users who are inept at WP, so if it updates in the future, it would be GREAT if the Overlay.gif file that places pinstripes over images had an activate or deactivate option in the backend as well. I have altered directly it for now, but whenever the theme updates in the future, I am afraid it will re-appear and I will not be around to save the day for these users.

THANK YOU!!! =)

CuckooThemes

Hi twillix,

We’re glad you like it;)

About featured images: they can be set on posts, works and pages and are used only for Post and Work thumbnails and displayed in homepage blog post unit and in page blog template. Work thumbnails are also displayed in homepage gallery unit and in all page portfolio templates. Technically, you can add featured images to pages, but there is no option planned to use them, therefore, they do not show up.

As for your suggestion about possibility to turn on/off slideshow overlay effect, it is already in development and will be released with the next theme update.

Thanks so much for the fast reply. I didn’t realize that what I was seeing here: http://demo.cuckoothemes.com/cuckootap/dark/shortcodes/ was not a featured image. Can you tell me how you made that image appear in your title line on this demo page, or is it something I need to hard code? Featured images in this way seem to make sense. Would love to see that in the future, but like I said, its magnificent already =)

Default-user
twillix Purchased

Though I would make specific note here that having the featured image only work for thumbnails around the site is great because I hate it when themes try to display featured images in too many different ways. This is an extreme landscape which means it wouldn’t likely look very good chopped down to a square thumbnail on most images.

CuckooThemes

Hi twillix,

Now I got it:) The image you can see in the page title background is Default Theme Background. It can be set in WP dashboard > CuckooTap > Color Settings > Default Theme Background.

BTW, we’ll think about your suggestion:) Thanks;)

Muhahahaha, how simple *facepalm. I did try this yesterday and it had a strange glitch where it replaced all blog body backgrounds with the image as well, making it impossible to read the text. I just tried it again and it works now. I was on chrome on a mac which often has cache problems with images. Just detailing this out there for anyone else who may have encountered this.

Thanks a million =)

Ok, still passionately in love with your theme but have encountered 2 minorish bugs that I thought you should be aware of. Here is an informational page with pictures for you: http://asm.the7eme.aup.edu/ahhh-a-bug/ Also, Multiple team pages and categorization of team members for use in large organizations with multiple branches would be excellent! _ Sorry to be making suggestions, just vying for your continued success!

Hi twillix,

As for Form 7 plugin, we are really sorry to disappoint you, but we do not provide support for any third party plugins or problems caused by the usage of third party plugins. We can only suggest using native theme contact form.

Many thanks for notifying about Facebook Like button issue. It will be fixed with next theme update. Great idea about Team member categorization, thanks!

Hi Cuckoothemes,

Thanks for replying to my last question about the filtered portfolio categories showing up on the homepage. For now I’m going to do without this feature. I’m just wondering if you have any plans for introducing that in a future release?

Also I think I’ve spotted a bug or two on android 1.4.2. Everything is beautifully responsive except for the menu on the right hand side of the screen. The title is only half visible and if you click on the menu to drop down, you can’t get it back up again by clicking again. Or is it meant to stay down? Seems a bit confusing, would appreciate clarification.

One more thing – I’ve used a tab box and the tab titles don’t appear fully aligned on android. I’m viewing on Galaxy S3 and can send you a screenshot somewhere if you like?

Otherwise it’s a great theme, works very well with SEO plugin as I’m on page 1 for some search results already.

Many thanks :-)

CuckooThemes

Hi mdbond,

Thanks for suggestion, we will think about filters implementation in homepage gallery unit.

As for your mentioned issue on android 4.1.2 please make sure you are using the latest theme version (please give us your contact email and we’ll provide you with it), latest WP version and try disable all installed plugins before testing. If the problem persists, screenshots would be very helpfull.

Also please send screenshots of tab box and the tab titles issue using this email: hi@cuckoothemes.com

Hi cuckootap,

Thanks very much for your speedy reply and for considering the filtered categories – this is really great stupport :-D

Yes I am using latest theme version, latest WP and I disabled all 2 of the plugins I installed but still the same issues when viewing on android 4.1.2. I’ll send screenshots over today.

I have one last question – I tried to get the deleted text effect in price boxes and tab boxes but couldn’t get it to appear as per your directions in documentation and the shortcode I grabbed from the demo. The shortcode did work if there was no other code being used at same time (i.e. bold text and deleted text) but didn’t otherwise. I’m just wondering if you can shed any light?

Thanks so much!

CuckooThemes

Hi mdbond,

Thanks for kind words :)

As for your question, there is no possibility to use typography shortcodes inside pricing table. But I got the idea and we’ll think how to add this option in the future updates.

I have 2 questions regarding the theme. I am getting 404 error pages that come up when clicking on team and works pages that I create. Why is this happening. 2nd question is how can you link the header menu buttons to a specific location on the page? So, instead of redirecting to a new page it scrolls down to the applicable area on the homepage.

CuckooThemes

Hi afountas21,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Here are the answers to your questions:

1. When creating any pages, make sure to do not use any of these words on their own: team, works, testimonials; only in combination with other words; for example, team-member or my-works.

2. When adding links to pages, make sure to leave out # , then it will redirect to the page instead of scrolling down.

Let us know if you have any more issues.

CuckooThemes

CuckooThemes

p.s. sorry, here is a little correction:

1. When creating any pages, make sure to do not use any of these words on their own in >>> URL: team, works, testimonials; only in combination with other words; for example, team-member or my-works.

Hi, I have a team page named “test” which is resulting in a 404 error along with works page named “McDonalds” with the same 404 error. Any thoughts?

I would like to enlarge the visibility of the logo. Please recommend what settings to change to show a larger logo in front of the main homepage.

regards, mark

CuckooThemes

Hi leavemymark,

Maximum size for the logo is 210×60 pixels and this can be changed only by code editing, but there are too many files involved and we can’t guarantee that responsivity will work properly after this. If you still want this let us know and we’ll provide you with the list of files that need editing.

One more option would be to use slideshow area for logo display.

CuckooThemes

Default-user

I found out a couple of options. CHANGED: div#theme_logo { position:relative; z-index:10; background-color:black; min-height:150px;} .logo_content .logo a, div#theme_logo .logo_content .logo a img { max-height: 100px; max-width: 210px; vertical-align: middle; text-align:center; text-decoration:none; }

ADDED #custom_logo { min-height: 110px; max-height:300px;} (you need to add another id to the logo else all the titles change with the main logo.)

Above works fine. To tackle this option via the theme you need to give the logo a seperate class and id.

Thank you for the quick reply.

Hi

Just purchased the theme yesterday and already updates. This is good, but does your theme support child themes? If yes, best practices to set it up correctly?
