Hello I cannot seem to use any shorcodes with my theme. I have wp version 3.9. I have reviewed the other comments, and noticed that redux (which i do not have at all) and tinyMCE could be an issue….Nonetheless, no matter which shortcode I use (got from documentation) (in either the front end builder or in the text) they do not display. It only shows code. Please advise.

My bad – my WP version is 3.9.2

Hi,

update theme to the newest version. Theme was released maybe day or two before WP 3.9 upgrade which came with new version of TinyMCE. After release I updated theme to match new version. Update your theme and reinstall shortcode plugin: remove old one and install the one that comes with updated theme.

Redux has nothing to do with it and it’s already included in the theme :)

I hope you can help me. I think it’s referred to as pagination. Anyways, I’ve installed a Dutch version of wordpress and everything, but your theme still has some english words, the ONLY thing I need changed to Dutch is this part of your theme: You are here: Home / Portfolio 2 columns with pagination

The You are here: part – It’s english, everything else on my website is Dutch, so this is important!

The problem is, I can’t find out how to do this myself, I tried to install plugins but all failed, it showed me PO and MO files and seriously, I don’t understand ANYTHING of it. I just need this single part translated! Show me how please, otherwise I need to delete it from every page and it really takes away the beauty of the theme and why I purchased it. Thanks.

maarcin

Hi,

no worries. This should be listed in mo/po files, but you can also change it manually by editing line 178 in includes/breadcrumb-trail/inc/breadcrumbs.php.

Thanks! Worked like a charm.

Another question, I can’t seem to get the portfolio page layout the same way like on your theme demo: http://themeforest.net/item/downtown-wordpress-multipurpose-bootstrap-theme/full_screen_preview/7466580

And I mean in particular the 2 big pictures on the botom of the vikings. And my theme doesn’t show a header either like on your demo.

maarcin

You have to remove ThemeForest frame (at the top of the demo page), otherwise it’ll always use home link. Right now I don’t know which layout you’re talking about.

Sorry, I gave you the wrong link. On this page I mean: http://themesymphony.com/themes/downtown/portfolio/viking/ The banner behind the words ’’You are here: ...’’ I can’t seem to get one on my version of the theme, how do I put a picture there?

maarcin

Use portfolio options -> Page title background (under visual editor). Then check “Use custom background” and “Use custom Image”. Upload your image and change settings to what you need.

Hi – great template really good. One question – How do I edit the code to keep the page title and breadcrumb only on the blog post pages and blog home page but not on other pages? I think the code is in the header file but I have removed it from there – please can you let me know what it should be and how to edit it to do the above? Thanks

Default-user

perfect thanks! Is it possible to edit the breadcrumbs trail so it shows blog home page url instead of main site homepage?

maarcin
Hmmm… You can try to change
' . home_url() . '
to your actual link on line 338 in includes/breadcrumb-trail/inc/breadcrumbs.php file. Just keep in mind that this change will take place everywhere on the site, not only on single post pages.

great that works well for what I need right now many thanks for quick replies

Hi Marcin, My site is coming along great, thanks again for the awesome template. Question- Im setting a filtered gallery: [mt-gallery-album limit=”-1” order=”DESC” orderby=”date” slug=”” filter=”yes” pagination=”no” size=”6” images_size=”standard” layout_type=”standard”] and I’ve set the categories on the galleries themselves. The categories come up on the gallery page but will not filter out like it did when I had everything set up as portfolios…did I miss a step somewhere?

maarcin

Hi,

hard to tell, I didn’t saw any issues with gallery filter. Can you send me wp admin details and page address on support@themesymphony.com? I’ll look into this.

Hey, I just purchased your theme and am new to Wordpress. I can’t figure out where to change the logo. Any direction would be appreciated.

maarcin

Hi,

you can change it in theme options -> header settings.

Hi folks. Nice job on the theme. Question…there’s about 600 lines of CSS code in the header of each page. All with the class tp-caption and then something else. Can this be removed, or at least moved to a separate css file? Thanks.

maarcin

Hi,

second item? You mean the additional window when saving options? I will ask author of this extension if anything can be done with it. I’ll let you know as soon as I get answer to this.

Hi,

in demo site you see this problem too or only on your installation? I didn’t spot anything like this before.

Marcin

Hi Marcin, I’m trying to add a tag and it just won’t take. Here is what I using on my home page…just under some buttons below the slider

I’m trying to have a bar separate the footer from the main section

The code looks correct to me but in the theme it doesn’t seem to fly.

That did it…Thanks.

Is there a job resume page? I’m looking to hire some people and want one up, it also looks hella professional. Do you have it? Cause I can’t find it in the theme demo.

maarcin

Hi,

no, I don’t. You have to create your own with available shortcodes/features.

Is there something missing from the files? I am trying to upload the .zip to my site and it’s not working. It times out, says ‘Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again’

maarcin

Hi,

there is nothing missing, maybe you’re uploading wrong file or have issues with your server?

Hi! I want to remove the path in the header pages, is it possible? Thanks Vania

maarcin

Hi,

you mean breadcrumbs? You can hide them by adding this in custom css in theme options

.mt-breadcrumbs {display: none;}

Best
Marcin

Default-user

Ok! Thanks!

I cannot access the Theme Options menus – I just get a blank screen when I click on the menu that I need eg Header Settings – any ideas why this is and how to fix it?

maarcin

Hi,

no idea, but you can send me wp admin details on support@themesymphony.com and I’ll look into it. I guess it’s problem of some kind with javascript, maybe other custom plugin cause the issues.

Do you have latest version of theme installed?

Best
Marcin

Default-user

i updated the plugin for the Theme Options and it fixed it thanks

Does this item have a plugin that will help build the pages or by editing the code?

maarcin

Hi,

if you mean the plugin like page builder of some kind then no, it doesn’t have any page builder included.

Best
Marcin

Default-user

And is there any plugin that supports this issue ?. It’s important to us that the customer does not have to edit html code

maarcin

Issue? Theme comes with tons of shortcodes to use and build pages. But there are no plugins like Visual Composer if you meant that.

Hello, I am newbie about portfolio can you guide me how to use portfolio. I have tried for 4 hours and looked up many tutorial. I am using http://themesymphony.com/themes/downtown/home-portfolio/ I have added a portfolio category added 1 portfolio and connected with category. Just portfolio featured image is appearing at homepage not other… please advice. Thanks
maarcin

So you have added one portfolio item (udayrajhome) and from what I see everything works just fine. If you want more images on the homepage add more items.

On the 3 screenshot there is ONE portfolio item that is in category “Home”.

If you need 16 portfolio items on homepage you have to add 16 different portfolio items (udayrajhome is portfolio item) and add a screenshot for each item.

Just wondering For eg. I need to add 16 photos at home page then do I need to make 16 portfolio and put 16 picture at featured to make them appear at homepage?

Yes. Exactly. For now you have only one item (udayrajhome) in the “Home” category that is displayed on the home page.

okay…. thanks… do you got any travel related theme?

maarcin

Hi,

if by “travel related” you mean with special reservation forms etc. then no, I don’t, but my latest themes can be easily adjusted to match what you need, but it’s hard to say without checking out what kind of page you want to create exactly :)
