Also, is there a way to move the 728×90 banner ad above the header, instead of having it appear to the right of it?

awesem

Hi delbarton92,

thanks for your query. To change the excerpt length:

1) Open _widgets/slider-latest.php (or slider-blog.php) 2) Replace aw_excerpt(get_the_ID()) by aw_excerpt(get_the_ID(), LENGTH) (e.g. aw_excerpt(get_the_ID(), 50))

To change leaderboard positionning:

1) Open header.php 2) Replace http://snippi.com/s/ivz7zha by http://snippi.com/s/j92emwp 3) Open style.css (child theme) and add: #leaderboard { width: auto; height: auto; margin: 0 auto 20px auto; float: left; text-align: center; }

Please let us know if you experience any problems with this. You can also sign up to our support forum over at http://support.awesem.com where we have faster response times as we have multiple support analysts monitoring the forum.

Two quick questions: 1) When you say to open up style.css in the child theme, does it have to be in the file with the child theme? I believe that I only uploaded the Deadline responsive theme to Wordpress when I installed it. Also, does it matter where I add the additional code (starting with # leaderboard …) into the style.css sheet? 2) Is there any way to change the slider so that the caption runs along the bottom of the photo (For example, on this site http://londonist.com/)?

Default-user

I’m having trouble finding “aw_excerpt(get_the_ID())” within the slider-latest.php. I’ve attached a document with code from two sections that I think it might be located (http://snippi.com/s/jp2exv0). Am I on the right track for either of these, or is it somewhere else?

awesem

Hi delbarton92,

thanks for your queries.

You don’t have to add the change to a child theme and you could simply add it to your style.css file instead, although the child theme will make upgrading easier in future. I suggest you add this code at the end of your style.css file.

Changing the styling of the slider is possible but this requires some customisation. Feel free to request a quote for this from Tweaky (http://www.awesem.com/tweaky) or www.wpcustomize.it (that’s us).

Regarding the excerpt code, which version of Deadline are you using? In the latest version of Deadline Responsive it should say something like:

<p class="slider-caption-title"><?php the_title(); ?></p>
                                <?php echo aw_excerpt(get_the_ID()); ?>

The file is located under _widgets/slider-latest.php

Please let me know how you get on with this.

Thanks

I’m still having problems finding that EXACT code. This is what I’ve found:

<?php the_title(); ?>

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

<?php _e(‘Read the rest of this entry’, ‘framework’); ?>

Do I insert the number (for instance, 50) such as this <?php printf(_(‘Permalink to %s’, ‘framework’), get_the_title(), 50);>>

Default-user

Also, I tried to place the new code (http://snippi.com/s/j92emwp) into Styles.css to make the banner ad appear above the logo, but it didn’t take the change. Do I need to go in and manual change out the code?

awesem

Hi delbarton92,

thanks for coming back on this. You should find the code in slider-blog.php Line 89 and slider-latest.php Line 92 in the latest version of Deadline Responsive (v 2.2.7).

You find the function in functions.php Line 218:

function aw_excerpt($post, $length = 30, $tags = ‘’, $extra = ’ ...’)

As you can see, the second parameter is the length so simply adding this to the code should work.

<?php echo aw_excerpt(get_the_ID(),50); ?>

If you experience any problems with this, can you send us a temporary login details to your site via our profile page and we will sort this out for you.

In regards to changing style.css I’m not entirely sure why it wouldn’t have worked. We can have a look at this one too when you send us your details.

If you need any further help with this then please feel free to request a quote for this work via our customisation partners Tweaky www.awesem.com/tweay and wpcustomize.it

Hi Olaf, I sent you temporary login information via your profile page. Please let me know if you’re able to figure out my questions regarding the slider and the banner ad.

Default-user

Hi there, I was wondering if you were able to log into my site and take a look at the slider caption as well as the issue I’m having with the banner ad. I still can’t find the exact code that you’re posting, Line 92 for the slider-latest.php. The closest I could find was this: <!- Caption ->

<label for=”<?php echo $this->get_field_id( ‘caption’ ); ?>”><?php _e(‘Autohide caption:’, ‘framework’) ?></label> <input type=”checkbox” class=”checkbox” <?php checked( $instance[‘caption’], ‘on’ ); ?> id=”<?php echo $this->get_field_id( ‘caption’ ); ?>” name=”<?php echo $this->get_field_name( ‘caption’ ); ?>” />

awesem

Hi Delbarton92.

I hope you are well and thanks for your patience on this. It appears that you need to upgrade to the latest version of our Deadline theme as there seems to be a mismatch of some sort which you are already discussing in our support forum which is great:

http://support.awesem.com/forums/topic/how-to-lengthen-caption-blurb-on-slider/

Hi Olaf, I was finally able to update the theme, and I was also able to change the length of the slider caption. Worked like a charm. Thank you very much for your patience with me.

The other issue that I wanted to revisit was having the leaderboard ad appear above my banner image. I placed the following code at the bottom of my styles.css file (http://snippi.com/s/j92emwp), but there wasn’t any change after I saved. Do I have to go in and manually change the code?

awesem

Hi Delbarton92,

we will have a look into this and get back to you on your Leaderboard query.

Thanks

Olaf

awesem

It appears that you need to put your code in header.php and not style.css:

You need to replace the if($aw_leaderboard_enable == 'true') part of header.php

Kind regards

I am looking to keep the date and comments at the top of the latest slider posts on touristguidecentral.com. Is there a setting for this or do I need to add some PHP to the file? At the moment I just get the heading. Also is it possible to hyperlink the heading so that visitors can click that along with either the image or “click here” link?

awesem

Hi boothyuk123,

thanks for your query. This is what you can try:

1) Open _widgets/slider-latest.php 2) Replace http://snippi.com/s/rzjtzan with http://snippi.com/s/g3ziv9v 3) Open style.css (child theme) and add: .slider-caption-title a { color: #fff; } .slider-caption-title a:hover { color: #ddd; }

Hi,

I really liked your template. One quick question as i am new to WordPress. I have installed WordPress 3.5.1 through GODADDY One touch installation. Will your theme work with this version as it is WordPress 3.5.

awesem

Hi roshanphilip,

thanks for your query and I’m pleased to hear that you like our Deadline theme. The theme works well with WP 3.5.1 and we will ensure that it remains compatible with future versions of WordPress.

i am having a problem uploading and or updating to the new theme :( Please assist. thanks

awesem

Hi sozorob,

thanks for your query and I’m sorry to hear that you are having problems uploading and updating the theme.

The first thing you can check is that you only uploaded the deadline.zip file included in the download file rather than the entire file you’ve downloaded from ThemeForest.

If you are still having problems after that I suggest you send us a quick message via our profile page with your URL, a temporary user name and a description of the problem so that we can look into this.

Thanks

Hi did it. Did activate it and then lost ALL changes we have done with it?

How can we update without loosing all data?

Please advise.

Many thanks

awesem

Hi sozorob,

I’m sorry to hear that you are having problems with the upgrade. You shouldn’t lose any changes as nothing gets deleted. In regards to the homepage for example, this page is now widgetised which means that you need to set up the widgets once. Previously, the theme had a static homepage that you couldn’t change yourself. Now you can drag & drop any widgets you like to use on your site and this should only take you a couple of minutes to set up.

There might also be the odd theme option that you need to reset as some of the names have changes. I suggest you go through your theme options and set those again. All previous theme options are still stored in the options table in case you need to refer to anything from the previous version.

If you need any help with this then we can do this for you via our customisation service over at WP customize (www.wpcustomize.it).

Please let me know how you get on with this.

Thanks

I can’t even install it, it seems to think it’s missing a css

This is what I get when I upload the zip:

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-117203-deadline-responsive-premium-wordpress-news-magazine-theme.zip

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Pleeese help. Thank you for your time.

awesem

You need to upload deadline-reponsive.zip not themeforest-117203-deadline-responsive-premium-wordpress-news-magazine-theme.zip (you need to unzip it in order to access to deadline-reponsive.zip)

I have a client that like your layout but I do not know how to use it for their specific situation. They have a Blog with they use for latest new (with a good amount of posts) and they have a Portfolio which they have been using as a library.

They would like to organize the portfolio items “the library” into main categories and similar to the display on your homepage. However, this would be located on the Library page (a short version widget like would be nice on the homepage). It is also technically a separate custom post type from the blog.

Any idea on how to make this work with your theme?

awesem

Hi LisaRae,

thanks for your query and interest in our Deadline theme. There are a couple of different ways you can achieve this. You could create a couple of the homepage template and customise this to suit your needs and then use this on your library page.

If you want to use custom post types you can have a look at this plugin to help you with this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/ – all you then need to do is customise the template and widgets to use the custom post type.

If you need help with this then please feel free to request a quote from http://www.awesem.com/tweaky or http://www.wpcustomize.it

Please let me know how you get on with it.

Hi, I am wondering if it would be possible to remove the ad boards completely? o.0

Hi jxieeducation,

of course, you don’t have to set the leaderboard at the top or use any homepage or sidebar ad widgets. As the homepage and sidebar are fully widgetised you can use any widget here.

Button and Vertical Banner ads – what is the formatting of the Sidebar?

Do those have to be the “last” or “lowest” sidebar, like they are in the previous v. 1 of the theme? And how they are shown in the Live Preview. Can there be a group of Buttons just like a group of Square Buttons? Can there be just side-by-side Vertical Banners?

Hi Histpres,

I hope you are well and thank you for your query.

Hello,

I can’t exclude category ID=32 from the slider in the widget menu. Whether I type “32” or “32,” or “32;” it doesnt work. Any idea ?

Thank you !

awesem

Hi kc87000,

Thank you for your query. We assume that you are using Deadline Responsive and you want to exclude category from Slider Latest widget. Documentation says: “Exclude: Enter comma-separated the IDs of the posts you want to exclude (e.g. 17, 83, 164).” that means it is not possible to exclude entire category from slider unless you edit php file manually. To do that please open _widgets/slider-latest.php and find this line http://snippi.com/s/eayqqlm and replace it with this line http://snippi.com/s/gqf0a8n . Note that there is a new element category__not_in, feel free to add your category number to be excluded, seperate with comma if you need to exclude multiple categories. Save the file.

Full Deadline Responsive documentation can be found here www.awesemthemes.com/theme-documentation/deadline-responsive

I hope this make sence.

We have an existing content driven site and are integrating Deadline Responsive V2 into our site. However, we are running into a lot of walls setting up the page. There is much that isn’t happening setting up the Homepage and customizing the theme to our liking. Any ideas on what’s happening??

Our site is: https://lakevoicetest.wp.d.umn.edu/

awesem

Hi lakevoicenews,

thanks for your query. I’ve had a look at your site and there appears to be a PHP error that prevents the rest of the theme loading and the footer isn’t showing. You also seem to be getting a jQuery error from the slider.

There are a couple of things you can do:

1. turn on php error reporting or check your error logs 2. add the sliderblog widget to the widget area to address the jQuery error

Once you’ve addressed these two issus then your site should look a bit more like our demo site.

Please let me know how you get on with this and if you experience any further problems.

Hi,

I’m trying to change the position of the slider navigators in the sliderblog from the bottom left hand side to the top right.

Could you please let me know where I can find the styles for this..

Thanks!

awesem

Hi RoryDigital,

the slider control style is defined as flex-control-nav on line 660 in style.css. I suggest you add your customisation to your child theme to separate it from the main theme so that it won’t get written by future updates.

Please let me know how you get on with this.

Thanks

Hi, thanks that worked great!

Another quick one, the twitter feed doesn’t seem to be feeding in the widget. http://in2ibiza.com < to have a look at the problem.

awesem

Hi RoryDigital, thanks for your query and congratulations on your great customisation! In regards to the Twitter feed, the obvious thing to check is if the Twitter name is correct. For debugging purposes you can also try and output the response from Twitter by editing the twitter.php file in the _widgets folder. Just add something like this after line 58:

echo "<pre>";
print_r( $response );
echo "</pre>";

Please let me know how you get on with this.

Cheers

Olaf

Default-user

Thank you! I tried the debugging as you said to do above, and within the footer area it now says:

WP_Error Object ( [errors] => Array ( [http_request_failed] => Array ( [0] => couldn’t connect to host )

)
[error_data] => Array
    (
    )

)

if that helps at all?

awesem

It sounds like your server can’t connect to Twitter for some reason (Firewall?): http://wordpress.org/support/topic/response-wp_remote_get-failed

I suggest you ask your hosting company to see if they have any restrictions in place.

ATTENTION:

BE CAREFUL BEFORE BUYING THIS THEME AT THIS SITE. IT SEEMS THAT THEY ARE CONCERNED IN GETTING MONEY. THEY DON’T GIVE A MINIMUM SUPPORT AND ATTENTION TO ITS CUSTOMERS.

I do not know where to claim. I bought this theme a year ago but, I didn´t install it because I was looking for a responsive theme.

I´d received the first update to version 2:21 responsive and now I’m having problem with my password on ENVATO site. I had problem with my old account password and I can’t login the EVNVATO site to update the this theme to new versions.

I have written several emails without getting any response.

Without having any attention from Envato, I wrote to Awesem, on their site, they promise to answer all e-mail in 7 days but I hadn’t any answer so far.

Although the layout has an aspect a bit old this theme is very good, works well in mobiles and has no conflicts with plug-ins.

SOMEONE COULD TELL ME WHERE I CAN CLAIM FOR ENVATO ATTENTION?

Hi Joao,

I hope you are well and thank you for your query. Great that you are looking to upgrade your version of Deadline.

In regards to your query, you have to speak to ThemeForest regarding your ThemeForest account as we have no way of verifying your email details as these are all held with Envato and you can only download the latest version within your download section in ThemeForest.

Please note that Envato do receive a lot of enquiries and it sometimes can take a couple of days until you hear back from them. You can also consider tweeting them with your Ticket number if you haven’t heard back from them after a couple of days.

Please let us know how you get on with this and good luck!

Cheers

Coming back to your query, I suggest you try speaking to ThemeForest / Envato regarding your password to your account.

Please let me know if there is anything else we can help you with.

Kind regards

Feel free to send me your ThemeForest ticket number and we can also try and chase Envato for an update on your ticket.
