Is there any reason why a simple embedded form see below code doesn’t work. I works on another WP site I have.

<form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="https://www.sendicate.net/subscribe/xxxxxx" method="post"> <label for="subscriber_name">Name</label> <input id="subscriber_name" name="subscriber[name]" type="text" /> <br /> <label for="subscriber_email">Email</label> <input id="subscriber_email" name="subscriber[email]" type="text" /> <br /> <input name="commit" type="submit" value="Subscribe" /> </form>

Obviously I’ve changed the xxxxxx part!

Hi Tim,

This code is not working because theme frameworks are different. We recommend you to use Form 7 plugin, if you’re not pleased with theme native contact form, it will work for sure.

You can download it here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contact-form-7/

Hope this helps,

Hi, Thanks. I need to post the data to https://www.sendicate.net/subscribe/xxxxxx as that is the service I use to manage my email list. Do you think that should be possible with Form 7?

Thanks

CuckooThemes

Not sure, but Form 7 is a free plugin so you can test it.

Got it working with Contact Form 7 plus another plugin which integrates Form 7 with 3rd parties

CSS – Performance

Hi,

A web developed friend has just taken a look at my site: http://www.unconsultancy.com/

and told me they have identified a lot of identical CSS files containing one font which they believe will be hurting performance.

Does that make sense? Can you comment?

Thanks

Tim

CuckooThemes

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your comment. Our theme uses valid CSS3 and HTML5. Until now we haven’t received any complaints about CSS code or performance issues.

Is there any way to make a video be a part of the slideshow instead of image slides?

CuckooThemes

Hi sandro_bit,

Slideshow is only for slides, it could be possible to add a video only by editing the code.

Default-user

so I would have to remove the slideshow PHP and insert the video embed code?

CuckooThemes

Unfortunately, it’s not so easy. You should remove slideshow template, add video template and do much editing: css files, jQuery and php configuration.

Can I use SLIDER REVOLUTION 2.0 within Cuckootap?

CuckooThemes

Hi fireboycreative,

Unfortunately, no, the native slider within CuckooTap is Nivo, and replacing it requires big changes in code.

CuckooThemes

Default-user

what if I create a generic page that has slider revolution on it, will that load and play? Or is just not compatible?

Hi fireboycreative,

We’ve not tested it with our theme and we cannot guarantee compatibility with our theme.

Loving the theme. For the TEAM page, is it possible to make it 2 team members per row instead of 4. Essentially the size of the image and the text body would be each half of the page. I know i could somehow replicate it using shortcodes on a standard page, but liked the TEAM layout and was wondering if it possible. Thanks for your help = )

CuckooThemes

Hi funkygecko,

Thanks for purchasing our theme :)

As for your question, there is only four column layout available for the team members page template. As you said, the most easy way is to do it manually, using half column shortcode and adding team member info to it.

Hi, Nice theme – documentation is great!

I have just noticed a few things, includiung a bug when using the home builder for Text:

1. Cannot input html (would be a nice option)

2. Home builder takes an incredibly long time to save (not sure if this is just my set-up).

3. When adding an apostrophe character ( ’ ) and saving, it replaces with / (slash) – presumably this is a SQL issue?

Another nice improvement would be the ability to add custom CSS easily that will overwrite defalt CSS (perhaps another page option under the CuckooTap menu)?

Thanks and well done so far, Matt

CuckooThemes

Hi Matt,

Thanks for purchasing our theme :) Glad you like it :)

1. We’ll add your suggestion about html input option to the wishlist.

2. Are you using the latest CuckooTap theme version 2.1? If yes, please let us know where exactly you’re experiencing this issue.

As for ability to overwrite default CSS, since version 2.0 we added a Child Theme for similar purposes, so you’re welcome to use it.

Hope this helps,

Hi and thanks for the fast feedback.

Yes I am using the latest edition (downloaded and uploaded yesterday).

The home builder is not actually saving at all now – I’m getting a 500 server error. It appears each time it saves it is adding an additional slash. The paragraph now looks like ” that\\\’s why we are constantly…”.

- I’ve tried removing the ’ from the text section in home builder and also tried to delete the problematic section completely – each time I get a server timeout error.

Perhaps if I remove this section in phpmyadmin it might help? Can you point me in the right direction?

FYI I also tried disabling all plugins and I’m getting the same issue (latest WP version also).

CuckooThemes

Just checked our theme on demo site and it seems like you’re having server problems and error 500 is not related to the theme. Sorry, but we can’t help you with this.

As for apostrophe character issue, everywhere where you’re getting this issues, try to replace it with symbols provided in url below: http://www.degraeve.com/reference/specialcharacters.php

This should work.

It looks like a SQL issue (perhaps with your code) to me. I’ve just exported SQL DB as CSV to take a look – see screenshot here http://azuz.co.uk/envato/DB-issue.jpg for the issue in the file: The code expressed here injects “div class=\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” and goes on until line 4095 (around 450 lines) – could this be causing the crash/500?

From a custom theme builder to a WordPress Keisuke Miyagi, thank you. The framework you have built allows Parallax to be seamlessly integrated into a WP site without forcing developers into a one-page crutch that kills SEO.

My favorite thing about parallax is its ability to tell a story – like the famous Hobo Lobo sketch that started all this madness off (http://hobolobo.net/) back in January of 2011.

A client and dear friend of mine just lost a nephew and I was planning to hand-code a Parallax scroller to tell his life’s story. You wonderfully glorious people have just saved me a score of hours and solved the user-level administration problem with $40, which is like a half an hour of my time.

I freaking love you guys right now.

Also, I don’t use complete frameworks. I’m more of a Hybrid Core + Zurb/Bootstrap type developer. I am an obnoxiously picky bastard that does nothing but complain about clients who bring me commercial templates and ask me to tweak them.

This, however… oh my dear new friends. This goes in my bag of tricks.

Well done.

I’d really like the featured image for all posts to also appear at the top of the single post not least because it then gives it an image which can be “piined”on Pinterest.

Can you suggest the code that would need to go into single.php to achieve that?

Thanks

Hi Tim,

The default background for the top area is set to all theme pages in our dashboard. You can set a custom background for different pages or posts by editing the code.

We don’t have a code to suggest, but we can give you the names of the files that need editing:
cuckootap/loop/total/template-header.php
cuckootap/templates/fonts.php

Hope this helps,

Hi, I am struggling with the home page slideshow. The images that I upload all appear pixelated and blurry. Is there a way to fix this? I have tried all sorts of files types and image sizes.

Also, is there a way to make the home page slider thinner?

Thanks, Alice

CuckooThemes

Hi Alice,

> The images that I upload all appear pixelated and blurry. Is there a way to fix this? I have tried all sorts of files types and image sizes.

It’s difficult to say why your images appear blurry and pixelated without seeing any examples or url. If you use 72 dpi resolution JPG format images with high quality compression, images should look normal.

Or you can send the original image to this email: hi@cuckoothemes.com we’ll try to make a slide.

> Also, is there a way to make the home page slider thinner?

Yes, you can. Check this slideshow example on www.cuckoothemes.com. Just keep the image width as recommended (I use 1920 pixels images width).

BTW: please drop a message using contact form in our profile page. We need to verify you as a customer.

Hi,

I’m trying to update to Version 2.o but it seems the link on the WP Dashboard is broken. Let me know if it’s a problem on my end or the server, etc.

Also, I want to change the team page to 3 column set-up instead of 4. What files would I need to modify after I create the proper css? Thank you.

Hi Chris,

The latest Version of CuckooTap is 2.1 and you should download it without any trouble.

To change team page to 3 column set-up you should edit this file: cuckootap/template-team.php

Hi CuckooThemes,

The issue with the social media buttons has returned. I signed in once and filled out the link info but then after saving and returning to the page later, I see no options any longer to add social media links. Also, they never show up on the home page segment. I just reinstalled 2.1. Let me know if its something else I need to change.

Hi,

Thank you for your theme, it awesome!

I just start to use the theme and I am wondering how can I use the menu in the same way as your demo theme? I mean, in the demo, the menu redirect you to the blog or team in the home page, but in my page the menu redirect to another page.

How can I get the same effect as the menu of the demo?

Thanks!

CuckooThemes

Hi jorgecorralesgomez,

Thanks for purchasing our theme :) Great you like it ;)

You need to add an url in menu (Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Menus) as shown in theme documentation examples about Homepage Builder on pages 18-26.

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

Hi,

I have loved using this theme.

I am just struggling to get the ‘CuckooTap/Contact information’ to work. It keeps thinking, or the message ‘An error has occurred while sending your email!’ appears.

I’ve read the documentation and entered email addresses to both areas (3.11.3 and 3.11.4).

I also want a contact form in another area, and after reading previous comments, I used the plugin ‘Contact Form 7’. This also doesn’t work and comes up with the message ‘Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact the administrator by another method.’

Hope you can help.

Hi guys! great theme, I really like it. I have some problems though, and I hope you could help me with it:

- the category “works” has disappear from my wordpress menu - in the homepage builder, if I insert any ” ’ ” (apostrophe) in a text-box, it generates a ”/” instead. It generates a new one every time I open the homepage builder. - Part of the options from the social-links tab in the wordpress menu’s disappeared, and also my social links don’t appear in the website.

Reading other comments, I guess you might need my login details. Let me know, and thanks!

Hello, i added some buttons to the navigation menu which are sliding ok but for the home button is not working, i’m not sure how i need to put the link so it slides to the top when the home button it’s clicked? and by the way in the theme demo is the “services” unit source a blog post or is it a page?

Hi fer1722,

> also i’m trying to put an image in between the pages like the one with this text in the demo: Using Unique CuckooTap WP Theme Homepage Builder You can display any of your site pages in Homepage as Page Unit

Here is a easiest way to do it:

Q: I’ve created an empty page just to display an image in a homepage using page unit in homepage builder. I set a background image that’s 1920×1080 pixels for this unit. However, the unit height in homepage isn’t scaling to show the full background image. What I’m doing wrong?

A: You should open your page in page editor and add this code

<p> </p>

to make some invisible content. Add as many these code lines as you need to make required site height. We recommend do it in a text mode.

Hope this helps,

Go to Dashboard > CuckooTap > CuckooTap (General Settings) and change your theme style to light. Please read more detailed in documentation file on page 16.

If you add all your content to homepage only, it will be a single page site. If you add pages and link to them in navigation, site will consist of multiple pages.

^^ Forgot the question above….^^

Here’s what I want this section to look like: http://imm.io/VLUF

To get there, I used the code at https://gist.github.com/972creative/d892cb685cc906f344ec

Afterwards, using the Chrome Debugger, I had to manually tell the columns to float (left column to float:left and right column to float:right). I suspect something in the shortcode CSS isn’t working correctly.

Help please!!

972creative

I don’t understand what you’re suggesting. I cannot remove code elements as that will remove font styling that I need. You’re shortcodes are very buggy. The slightest bit of formatting and it doesn’t work.

CuckooThemes

You added span code and left spaces between column code blocks. That’s why code seems not functioning. You don’t need to remove any styling within columns.

972creative

The span is so that I can have a larger font size on this text. I must be able to adjust the font size. As for the spaces, I don’t see what you’re talking about. Could you provide me code that will accomplish the look in my screenshot?

I am about to purchase your theme. I really love it. What side does the images need to be on the homepage slider? Is this the same size images located throughout your demo theme that shows big images? Does the homepage automatically resize the image to fit or does it have to be an exact fit to your specs listed? Lastly, on the logo section on the homepage. Does it only fit letters for the logo or can we upload an image logo in that section?

CuckooThemes

Hi SilkSmoov,

> What side does the images need to be on the homepage slider?

If you mean “size”, we recommend using 1224×660 pixel size images for the slideshow. For example, in our demo we use 1920 pixel width image, height actually doesn’t matter.

> Is this the same size images located throughout your demo theme that shows big images?

When you upload an image, system creates standard size images for usage in each theme location. For example two sizes for thumbnails 225×225, 470×225, special sizes to fit the columns.

> Does the homepage automatically resize the image to fit or does it have to be an exact fit to your specs listed?

You don’t need an exact size image. But it’s better to use images of the same size for the slideshow to make animation run smoothly.

> Lastly, on the logo section on the homepage. Does it only fit letters for the logo or can we upload an image logo in that section?

Logo has three options: No Logo, Plain Text Logo and Image Logo. Image logo has size limit – 210×60 pixels. So yes, you can upload image logo there.

Hope this helps, CuckooThemes

Thanks so much for the thoughtful answers. One more question. When I am on the demo page, it appears that the entire website is on one domain page name. For SEO purposes this will kill SEO for each page that I created that is on this mininalist website. When I click on each “tab” it scrolls to that page, but in the URL it still has the homepage listed. Is there a way for the scroll to work, but show the actual page name? That way, it works for SEO purposes.

CuckooThemes

Hi SilkSmoov,

Our theme does not kills SEO. Each page that you can add to the homepage as a homepage unit can be opened as a single page and has it’s own url and can be found using google search.

For example Welcome page: http://demo.cuckoothemes.com/cuckootap/dark/welcome or Theme Features: http://demo.cuckoothemes.com/cuckootap/dark/theme-features/

Also I recommend you to read “isarmstrong” comment in previous comments page: “From a custom theme builder to a WordPress Keisuke Miyagi, thank you. The framework you have built allows Parallax to be seamlessly integrated into a WP site without forcing developers into a one-page crutch that kills SEO.”

Thank you so much for sharing that link. I can fully see and understand that each of those pages have their wordpress page. When I looked at the demo from themeforest, it does not show it like that and it appears that everything you click is only on the homepage domain name. Thank you so much. I will now become a buyer of your theme.
