Hi there!

We just released our site using the Earth template and I have noticed that on the Homepage, the galleries title shows as “Recent News.” This makes the site look unprofessional, but I can’t figure out why the title suddenly changed. Please help!

Thanks

Hi there,

If you are using the latest version of the theme – http://www.wpexplorer.com/changelogs/earth/ – there is an option in the theme options panel to change this heading.

Also in the latest version you can actually build the entire homepage with the new modules added in the Visual Composer for earth ;) So if you wanted you can actually recreate the blog/events section with that and truly have full control.

I love the theme; you can see what I’ve done with it here: http://www.joshclaybourn.com/

My questions concerns flexibility with the right sidebar. I would like to have one sidebar for the blog, and a separate right sidebar for all other pages. However, it appears we have to pick one sidebar and stick with it. Is there a fix for this or any suggestions to get to sidebar options?

Nevermind, I figured out through your response to an older post. Thanks!

Hi,

I am interested in getting the Earth theme but I have questions as I need a specific language option (french) : 1) Can this theme be internationalized, meaning translatable into french ? 2) do you provide the french translation , or at least the .pot file that can allow me to do it myself at least? => I know WordPress has set up a system that allows theme translation but for this your theme must use it. 3) When changing/switching theme, will all the parameters, settings, extensions etc remain on the new theme ? For example, in the actual theme used (Japibas), an option is there to hide some of the pages of the main menu. For the new theme Earth : is this option available? as we do have many hidden pages that have to remain hidden : so non visible in the main menu. 4) If we have both an english and a french version on our website for which we have installed the new theme, is there a way to get from one to another with the Earth theme to change language directly on the site?

Thanks a lot for your answers.

I have two questions: 1). Are we able to add a second red donate button to the top of the nav bar? and 2) Is it possible to hyperlink the gallery images at the bottom of the home page directly to an external link?

WPExplorer

1. This would have to be added manually in header.php – preferably via a child theme.

2. The gallery images go to the gallery posts, if you want to link single images to external links you should consider using the Single Image module in the Visual Composer drag/drop plugin.

Hi, I can’t figure out why there is a huge space underneath the slider image on my homepage before the highlights:

http://marysfarm.ca/

Also, I’d like the events and static page content to be in two columns as opposed to the full width of the site.

Any advice?

Many thanks

WPExplorer

It looks like there might be a second layerSlider being added to the page – http://cl.ly/image/2v3Q0Q2r262Y

If you want the events and content to be in two columns, don’t use the built-in homepage template, simply create the layout using the Visual Composer, there are built-in modules for the events, you can use the “Separator with Text” for the headings and use the “Text Block” module for the content.

Hello,

in which file can I edit the blog (article) font height, and the font height for every page?

Thank you.

WPExplorer

This wouldn’t be edited in a file but rather a customization done via a child theme or the custom CSS field in the theme panel. Here is an example of the CSS:

/*change blog entry title size*/
.loop-entry h2 { font-size: 24px; }
/*change blog post title size*/
#post-title { font-size: 24px; }

What version is the theme up to? I have 3.12 installed. Is there an update? The envato update plugin is not showing one. However after upgrading Wordpress my highlight images on the homepage are not displaying http://www.sarvagalight.com.au/
Default-user

Hi there I did the update but the highlights still arent working. Can you please let me know if this is a known issue?

WPExplorer

I thought I responded to another comment or email from you. It looks like the Imagick engine is not running on your server which WordPress uses to resize/crop/trim images. You’ll need to enable this or at least the GD library which is he fallback.

Default-user

Hi this is now installed by our host, but the images still dont appear. http://www.sarvagalight.com.au/check.php How can we resolve this?

WPExplorer

Please send me a private message with the logins so I can verify, it’s impossible to know from the front end.

Couple other things you could check…

  • Are your images hosted on the same domain? Needed for WP to resize/crop.
  • Is your site and WP url the same in Settings->General?
  • Are you able to edit an image via the backend – http://cl.ly/image/3N1x2e2K3d3M – if not, then Imagick isn’t working properly.
Default-user

These checks all work properly. Have sent you details in PM

Just got them, but had trouble logging in I just responded.

I’m trying to upgrade to Earth 3.2 and when I preview the new theme, I see the following two error messages repeated many times over the Events calendar:

Warning: mktime() expects parameter 4 to be long, string given in /home/content/48/5925548/html/wp-content/themes/earth/functions/event-helpers.php on line 116

Warning: mktime() expects parameter 4 to be long, string given in /home/content/48/5925548/html/wp-content/themes/earth/functions/event-helpers.php on line 118

Can you tell me how to fix this? I’ve obviously purchase this theme. Is there a way for purchasers to open a job ticket versus leaving a comment?

Thanks

Default-user

Hello. I notice that you responded to people who left comments after I left mine. Can you please help? I also sent you an email from your profile page. Nothing. And I’d still like to know if there is a way to open a help ticket. I’m sure you use to have that type of support. It’s unacceptable to be left hanging for days without a solution…

WPExplorer

I just replied to your email.

Default-user

My events have start and end dates, but I’m still getting the error messages above. Can you please advise?

WPExplorer

Very strange. That is exactly what the error is saying is wrong. You’ll need to send me a private message with temp admin access so I can log in and double check.

You can message me privately via the form on this page – http://themeforest.net/user/WPExplorer – and I will respond via email. Make sure to send me all pertinent data and context so we can get this sorted in a timely manner.

Thank you for resolving my problem!

Is there a way to filter events on the calendar? For instance, if the theme was being used by a school and there were booster, sporting, and teacher events, is there a way to only see sporting events?

WPExplorer

There aren’t any built-in categories for the included Calendar. The built-in events are kept very minimal on purpose.

If you want something more advanced you’ll want to look into using a plugin – there are tons of really awesome Calendar plugins out there. If you can’t find any that would suit you let me know and I can maybe suggest a couple depending on your needs.

Default-user

I like everything about this calendar but it is only missing the ability to filter events. Are there other calendars that are very similar but have filtering?

WPExplorer

If all you need is filtering maybe you can hire someone to add support via a child theme?

This is a very popular plugin, but I haven’t tested it with Earth – http://codecanyon.net/item/calendarize-it-for-wordpress/2568439

Hi Still waiting for a reply. This is now urgent. my highlight images on the homepage are not displaying http://www.sarvagalight.com.au/

WPExplorer

The code for the image is there, but not being generated.

Sounds like your server doesn’t have the Imagick engine active which is required for WordPress to crop/trim images since WP 3.5 – http://make.wordpress.org/core/2012/12/06/wp_image_editor-is-incoming/

Please contact your webhost if you aren’t sure how to enable it by default. And if it can’t you’ll need to at least enable the GD library which is the fallback if Imagick isn’t running.

I was having an issue with a duplicate of my website name appearing in the website seo title. I had to fix this by changing some code in the header.php file from:

<title><?php wp_title(’’); ?><?php if(wp_title(’’, false)) { echo ’ |’; } ?> <?php bloginfo( ‘name’ ); ?></title>

to

<title><?php wp_title(’’); ?></title>

Is there a reason for the other code here?

WPExplorer

The code in the theme is just the suggested code by WordPress, but I’ll tweak it in the next update ;)

Oh yes, if WP SEO isn’t active and you have just the function you added it creates conflicts.

There is also a setting in Yoast to force SEO re-writes, which should also have fixed the problem.

Hi,

I cannot upload the Earth theme to Wordpress (3.91). In short: I cannot upload the main theme at all. The child-theme uploads but when I try to activate it I get “the active theme is broken. Reverting to the default theme” message on the dashboard.

Clueless to where the problem is (first time) so perhaps you could help me with this?

Matti

WPExplorer

Hi Matti,

What error do you get when you try and upload the main theme? You need the main theme before you can use the child theme.

Generally errors uploading are due to a low memory limit set on the server -http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

Default-user

Thanks for the prompt response! I managed to circumvent the problem by FTPing the theme. This must be an a server issue. Matti

Hi-

I only want to update the functions.php just in case and put the new Themeforest modules into the “functions/visual-composer” folder to replace that theme folder via FTP. I need to send the files to the person who is helping me with this task. Would you be able to send me the latest files???

Thanks

WPExplorer

The latest files are always available for download in your ThemeForest account just go to your “downloads” section.

Help! Our site calendar is going awry! I noticed that some events in our calendar are giving a 404 page. Also, our upcoming Events posts are also showing 404 pages even though they all have been published and worked just fine up until yesterday.

here is an example: http://manoa.hawaii.edu/lyonarboretum/calendar/orchid-culture-growing-techniques/

Sounds like a rewrite issue on the server. Try going to Settings->Permalinks and re-saving your options.

Hi there!

I have just updated to version 3.2… On my homepage on the actual browser, there is a seperator with text below my layer slider that says sample title, but on my visual composer on the actual page in Wordpress there is no such thing at all so I cannot remove it???

Please help, it looks unproffessional…

WPExplorer

Hi there,

Please share the URL so I can see exactly what’s going on. It’s very hard to tell what’s been setup without looking.

In fact if you want send me a private message with temp admin logins, it might be a lot quicker for me to help you if I can log in and actually look at how things are setup.

Please excuse me for asking another question… A quick one though

The different fonts on the typography setting – where can I go to see examples of each font to make a choice as to which one will work for my site?

Is there a way to make the writing a larger font as well?

Thanks!

WPExplorer

These are all Google Fonts – https://www.google.com/fonts – In the next update though I plan on making a live preview for the backend while you choose them.

Hello WPE,

I’m currently using Earth 3.12 and yesterday I tried to update to the latest version by one of these two options you mentioned:

1. In your theme panel under the “Updates” tab you can enable auto updates so you can update your theme via the dashboard – http://cl.ly/image/0g3G3O1r2A41

2. You can use the Envato Toolkit to update the theme via the WP dashboard – http://www.wpexplorer.com/envato-wordpress-toolkit-guide/

For option, I enabled automatic “update” by inputting my license code but I was still not able to update the theme automatically. Also, I didn’t get any update notification.

For option 2, I successfully installed Envato tool kit and it listed all purchases including Earth Theme. However, I was also unable to update Earth automatically via this option because the link to update is missing. All there was below the Earth logo is:

?Earth 3.12 by WPExplorer?WordPress theme by WPExplorer.com?Options: Customize | Widgets | Menus | Header | Background?All of this theme’s files are located in /themes/earth

Thanks

WPExplorer

I noticed you are on a multisite installation, unfortunately auto updates don’t work on Multisite neither the built-in or the Envato toolkit due to a multisite bug.

Myself and host provider Media Temple cannot find anything on the server to indicate the site is running as multisite. I checked my database, .htaccess and wp_config.php files, and nothing shows the site is multisite. I’m using JetPack plugin, could this be the problem?

Hi- I think there is something wrong… I want to add a category called Favorite Stuff. It will not show up on the sidebar. I want to make it so that when someone clicks onto favorite stuff, it goes to a page that shows my Favorite Essentials and the other page Favorite Blogs & Websites. I think I have tried everything. It just won’t appear in the sidebar of categories. http://www.essentiallydogs.com/my-blog

Also, how can I change http://www.essentiallydogs.com/my-blog so that there is no “my” in it? Will that mess up anything if I do that? Thanks

Default-user

I JUST fixed the blog hyperlink, but the other issue is impossible :o(

Default-user

Oh… By the way, Favorite Essentials and the other page Favorite Blogs & Websites are PAGES not posts.

Hi there-

I have an Affiliate Disclosure page, I want to make it so that: -that page will be hidden from searches that I run from my searchbar. -and to make it so that the words “affiliate” “commission” and “disclosure” will not come up with results. This is because I have those words on almost all of my articles.

Thanks Janie

Howdy! So whenever I edit something on my homepage via visual composer it does not let me save/update the edits. What do I do!? thanks!

WPExplorer

Do you have any 3rd party plugins active that may be breaking the visual composer – usually the case. If so can you try de-activating them 1 by 1 to test?

If you can’t find the issue, please send me a private message with the site URL, temp admin logins and a description of the issue so I can see what might be wrong. Use the contact form on my profile page – http://themeforest.net/user/WPExplorer
