Hi, I just downloaded and installed the theme and everything went through with no problems. I then uploaded the sample data and after activating the Top Menu, for some reason the links show up below the horizontal black background. Please take a look at www.legacyhottubs.com and you will see what I’m talking about. It looks like a CSS issue or I just don’t know where to tweak this setting. Please Help and btw, great theme everyone loves it. Ozzie

Hi Ozzie,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You have to make sub text for each tab in <sub>text</sub> code.

For example for “Home” tab

Home<sub>back to home</sub>

Hello,

I purchased this item. It is a well thought out theme and works great for my needs.

I am trying to use multiple FAQ pages

I have three categories, 10 questions each I want to create 3 pages, each with 10 questions

I think currently I can only add all 30 questions in one FAQ page.

Can I use the same FAQ structure on multiple pages ?

Can you please help me out ?

Thanks Vinay

Hi Vinay,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can use faq section only for single page but you can use toggle shortcode for other faq pages.

Example : http://desire-wp.premiumthemes.in/?page_id=99

[toggle style="2" title="Question here"]
Answertext here lorem ipsum.
[/toggle]

Hi,

1. Can I make any page the home page? 2. Is there and option to put videos in the sliders and portfolios instead of images?

Thanks :)

Softwebmedia

Hi magicmermaid,

1. You can make any page as home page.

2. In current version, video slide option is not available in slider, (but in future it is possible to add new sliders like cycle etc. which will have video slides option.)

Thank you :)

Thank you for your quick response :)

Hello, I just purchased The “Desire” theme. I am cant seem to word wrap the menu. I am able to modify the CSS to make room for the pages I need on the main menu but I really need to do a word wrap. On the sample and preview there seems to be a option to place additional descriptors under the title link of the menu but I cant seem to get that to work. Please let me know what I can do about this. Thanks Richard

Thanks for the fast response. Where do I place the <.sub></.sub> code. Thanks Richard

Hello richardbarrios,

You have to add this code in Home tab.

I have my blog set to show 6 posts per page. When I click on the button to go to page 2, I get a 404 error. http://madisonparklove.com/blog

Hi madisonparklove,

Please send your website admin login from our profile page form so we can check default settings for blog posts page and theme options section blog posts per page. (You have to give higher number in default post per page – Left menu “Settings” > Reading > Blog pages show at most > 6 or 6+ )

Two quick questions (great theme by the way).

1. How do I change the color of the links on the right hand side menu? 2. There is a line under the right side menu links that sticks out of the website, how can I fix it?

thanks very much here is a link to the problem page http://legacyhottubs.com/hot-tubs/caldera-hot-tubs/

thanks again Ozzie

Hi Ozzie,

You can change sidebar link color with below code

#content #sidebar ul li a { color: #505050 }

You can fix lining issue by adding below css code.

#content #sidebar ul li { width: 238px; }

#content #sidebar ul li ul li { width: 220px; }

#content #sidebar ul li ul li:last-child,#content #sidebar ul li ul {
    border-bottom: none; }

Thank you :)

Hi, I can’t figure out why my links and bullets look so tiny in most windows machines. It looks perfect on Mac, Mobile and window 7 machines but on computers running older versions prior to windows 7 it looks like this http://marketingside.com/Calderaproductspage.png

any help is much appreciated Ozzie

Hi Ozzie,

We checked your website and it looks font-size:100% issue in IE. Please send your website admin login details from our profile page form so we can test and help to fix the issue.

Hi I have bought and like this theme. There is one niggling thing though. I get a 404 error that keeps tripping my security for this url /wp-content/themes/desire_wp/images/backgrounds/sidebar-bg.jpg so I think that perhaps it is called somewhere within you theme, but doesnt exisit. Can you look into it for me? Thanks

Softwebmedia

Hi AlpesInfo,

We removed sidebar-bg.jpg file from the images folder in updated version. So please ignore this error message during xml demo installation.

Thank you :)

Default-user

Hi This error occurs in a standard installation, not the xml demo installation. I cant really ignore it, because my security plugins treat my IP address as a potential hacker because I keep triggering this 404. Can you work out where it is being called in the theme, and tell me which line I need to remove to stop this happening. Thanks

Softwebmedia

Hi AlpesInfo,

You can remove this background image calling from wp-content/themes/desire_wp/style.css file index #13 Sidebar, #sidebar {.....

Thank you :)

Is it possible to fix the word-wrap issue when using the toggle? If the text is too long, it spills out of the box and covers up the next line of text: http://madisonparklove.com/qa/

I think I figured it out. I replaced height with 100% in the shortcodes css file. It would look better if the wrapped text were indented, but at least it’s not overlapping text now.

Softwebmedia

Hi madisonparklove,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can make text indented by following css ( acc this css code in shortcodes.css or in theme options – css section.)

#content .acc_container2 .block2,
#content .toggle_container2 .block2
{ padding-left:25px; }

Is there a way to crop the square post thumbnail? It auto crops to the middle of the image, but I’d like to be able to adjust that. The built-in WP crop tool doesn’t seem to work with this theme.

Softwebmedia

Hi madisonparklove,

This theme has default wordpress crop tool which works as per wordpress media crop script (It works great for square images). You can edit x and y position in crop with below tutorial.

Hi,

Thanks for the awesome theme! just one small question, My website isnt looking so great in IE, yet when I open the test site in IE it looks fine. the fonts in the menu and sidebar on the blog page are super tiny?

Any ideas whats going on and how can I fix this?

the site is: grantatkinson.com

Thanks

Softwebmedia

Hi Biggestleaf,

It looks closing sub title text of menu tab is remaining in gallery tag.

Add > in Grant images sub tag code.

Gallery <sub>Grants Images </sub>

IE follow strict rules so it displays and other browsers auto fix the unclosed tags.

Thank you :)

I’m just getting started and I see that I already have some conflicts with installed widgets e.g. the feature slider is not working. Would you please point me to the “update for this theme”. It’s not appearing in my install section.

I’m aslo having troubles with the menu displaying below the black bar. I see previous replies above, however, I’m stumped on where to place the code in the “Home Tab”. I have no Home Tab in my Appearance section? You make reference to Admin > Appearance > Menus > Top Menu > Home tab. You can refer help file topic #6. Wordpress Custom Menus > step 4 image left box “Custom Links”. Is this the standard WP Help or am I missing a read me file?

Also, I’m looking for a “getting started guide” or something like that. Was there any documentation with the theme to help a newbie get off the ground?

Thank you in advance.

Softwebmedia

Hello ArcherMM,

When you unzip main downloaded file, you will find “Help-Documentation” folder. Click on this folder and click on index.html file to view all steps for theme setup.

Only upload “desire_wp.zip” file from admin which is main theme folder. Help file has all guidance for testimonials, faq, contact us etc. pages.

You can make your website like preview site in few minutes by importing xml demo content (see 1st topic of help file)

Thank you :)

Hi, Having trouble adding the second line of text under the menu items. The documentation says refers to PSD files, “menu divider light”. How do I activate this? Where do I find the PSD file? Thanks in advance for helping this rookie. :confused:

Softwebmedia

Hi ArcherMM,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You don’t need to do any changes in psd file but you have to add <sub>second line text</sub> code with each menu tab. Below is example code

Home <sub>back to homet</sub>

Thank you for your prompt reply. May be a silly question, but where do I add this code?

Hello Could you help me to resolve the following problems I have with the theme? I have created a page with template “Portfolio 4 Column – Sortable” (http://blogforaday.com/choose-a-theme/) and my issues are the following: - first the buttons which represent the portfolio categories – some buttons are shown on a new line, but other not (seems the logic is if the sequence of buttons exceed certain length they go on new line). Can we make all buttons to be in sequence without some going on a new line, because now they look out of order, just placed randomly and look strange. - second the logic of the arrangement of the portfolio items – it was fine till I published the items one after another, but when I used the option in the admin (Sort portfolio Items) everything went mixed – you can see now on the page first row is fine – we have 4 items per row, but on the second row the 5th item is at column 4 in the row and the first three columns are empty. 3th row is fine, but on the 4th we have 3 items, on the 5th one item and so on everything is mixed. Also now I have arranged my items from 1 to 30, but if I publish a new one (for example the 31st) it will go on first position, then the next (32) will not go again on first position, shifting the 31st to second position, but will go on the second position. This means that I will have to manually re arrange the items no matter if I have decided to arrange them in ascending or descending way. I would appreciate your help. Thank you. Regards, Veselin

Softwebmedia

Hello trendyx,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can fix this issue with two methods.

1. Give fix height of all portfolio items in style.css at bottom or in portfolio section ( you can increase/decrease height as per content size)

#content .portfolio>ul>li { min-height: 360px; }

2. Move large summery/title text item to right. For example move “0002 – Carniz Blog Theme” to 4th item of portfolio.

You can change portfolio sorting DESC in php file so any new portfolio item will come as last in order.

Open ../wp-content/themes/desire_wp/template-portfolio-sortable-4col.php file and go to line #49

You will find below code

'order'     => 'ASC',

change this to

'order'     => 'DESC',

If this looks complicated then please send your website admin login (from our profile page form) so we can change in php file.

Is there a way to increase the width of the blog posts and decrease the width of the sidebar?

Softwebmedia

Hello madisonparklove,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can do custom changes for width but it requires many changes in theme functions, css and html structure. Like posts image width, video width, gallery posts width and all custom widgets like tab,flickr, advertise width.
