Nice theme!

One note, there’s something wrong with the menu formatting. The sub items appear below the main items. Checked in Safari on a Mac.

Cheers! Tom

Hi Tom!

Hi, I’ve download the theme, uploaded to my site and it seems there’s something wrong:

The live preview doesn’t shows anything When I activate the theme my site goes to error 500

I have WP version 3.4.2 ¿am I missing something?

Thanks!

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

We have accidentally used a little code that is not working on some PHP installations, our apologies for any inconveniences.

You now have 3 options, pick one:

A) Follow this short tutorial to fix it on your own http://pastebin.com/c58XA84f

B ) Download the whole freshizer file from here and replace your existing one with it http://pastebin.com/Eptvm3YC You can find that file in “edison/framework/engine/functions/freshizer.php”

C) Wait for a 1.6 version which is now in the queue and should be approved in 24 hours

Thanks and cheers! :)

Hi! Thanks for the quick fix to the freshizer error ;) Now I have another problem… I’m trying to use qTranslate with your theme and the fields for header text doesn’t work with the structure <!-:en->english text<-:es->spanish text<!-:->

do you know what could fix this issue? any other translation options?

Thanks in advance! the theme looks great!

FRESHFACE

Hi Bigsome!

are we talking about backend translation or frontend translation ? Because you can easily translate frontend directly in Theme Options ( section “translation”)

cheers, freshface

Hi again! I’m talking about multilanguage… I know the frontend is easy to translate with the translation option but I need the site to be multilingual with qtranslate plugin…

Thanks in advance!

I’ve been reading the comments after purchasing this theme and have to thank Amanda at GoDaddy for walking me through the coding glitch in freshizer.

Quick question: is there a way to increase the transparency of the small text boxes in the sliders?

Your guidance is most appreciated!

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

You would need to download this image from your servers, edit the transparency in e.g. PhotoShop and upload it again, replacing the old image:

wp-content/themes/edison/framework/engine/sliders/img/slider_tabbed_transparent_background.png

Thanks and cheers! :)

Hi Freshface and all users that bought this theme.

If anyone had the same issue with qTranslate for a multilingual site, I’ve found how to make it work without any big changes:

The clue is change every variable with the translation function that qTranslate is hooked to, for example, in the header, the action buttion is:

<?php echo $a_button; ?>

and it has to be replaced with:

<?php echo __($a_button); ?>

(file of this example: /wp-content/edison/templates/action/action-1.php)

Then you can use the shortcodes needed for your languages in the theme options section for the header:

<!--:es-->más información<!--:--><!--:en-->more info<!--:--> or [:es]más informacion[:en]more info
  • and repeat it with all the variables in the template frontend files

Freshface, with that change in your code you could tag it as “multilangual” with qTranslate plugin!!! I think it could be a big improvement for your theme ;)

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

Thanks for the heads up, I will forward it to the devs.

Thanks and cheers! :)

Hi There. Thx for an awesome theme. I have installed the theme on local computer and started working on the template builder, but when I press save changes it just hangs and does not save the template? Any ideas? Thx! Adam

Hi there!

I am really sorry that you’re having this issue but without seeing the site and checking out the code it’s impossible for me to suggest solutions.

Are there any known issues with wampserver and the themes template builder? Everything else seems to work and it updates changes, it creates the theme as well, but does not want to save any modules added

Hi Melanie

I have sent my details to you, number: 1115

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

I am sorry to say that but one of your 27 plugins is breaking our Template Builder. I deactivated all of your plugins, activate them one by one to find out which one causes it. If you want, you can report it back, but I cannot guarantee that we will find the culprit since we cannot support 3rd party plugins.

Thanks and cheers! :)

Thx Melanie. It seems in the end it was IE9 security issue, I opened up on FF and worked a charm. Now another thing, where do I edit the css of the tabs of the tabbed slider? Bit of a noob as you could have gathered

Sorry, but I only saw the reply button to my comment and not to yours, and thought it will mess messages… I’ll use reply from now ;)

¿have you checked the error? Right now the template builder shows HTML (thats better than seeing nothing ;) ) but the Visual editor tab doesn’t works

Thanks!

Hi there!

Sorry but since you did not use the reply button for your initial comment I don’t know your problem so I could not check – could you please tell me what the problem is?

Hi Freshface:

I purchased this template and love it. However, I need guidance with turning this into a responsive website. Your help would allow me to turn this great web design into a more functional, fabulous one.

Thanks!

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

I’m afraid turning the theme into a responsive one is not in our pipeline. You would need to hire a developer for that.

Thanks and cheers! :)

Is there a way to make the sidebar custom menu show hover image on the active page?

When we put a navigation menu in the side bar, how come the navigation menu doesn’t show the active page as highlighted? Normally with other websites when you are on the active page that is shown in the menu, it “the menu item” remains highlighted till you go to another page. It’s not doing this in this theme.

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

I’m afraid as you already noticed this theme is not other themes :) So the developers simply did not build that in. Thanks for the heads up!

Hi Freshface,

I would really like to buy Edison, but i’ve seen Showtime and i like some things there and am wondering if Edison also has those.

1. I like the Showtime footer better; in the widget area the links have boxes and lines around them. Does Edison also come with that option?

2. The pricing table of Showtime has checkmarks and red crosses, does Edison have that too?

3. The pricing table of Showtime has the info its data storage and tech support on the left side, does Edison have that too. I need the comparison ability in the priceing tables thats why.

4. In Showtime, when you hover over the menu, the link gets a circle highlight around it. In Edison that doesnt happen, is that option availabel?

5. Does Edison or Showtime have tooltips and if not, can a tooltip plugin work. If so can you show me soem tooltips that you think fit the template best?

Thanks in advance.

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

For all your questions: I’m afraid the two themes are different as you already noticed. So the themes provide only the stuff that you can see in the demo. Everything you want to be different has to be customized either by you or by someone you hire for that.

Thanks and cheers! :)

Also, the themebuilder is awsome! Its userfriendly and has a clear design.

I would like to know if it has influence on SEO , say, i only use themebuilder and dont write anything else on the page, will that be the same for google as me typing that stuff on the page whitout themebuilder or do you advice me to do both: use regular text with headers like H1 on the page together with themebuilder?

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

The template builder only adds layout to the content you will add. It basically makes layouting your pages easier, as if you would add shortcodes manually. So the output will be the same as if you created a page with shortcodes manually. Make sure you only have one h1 per page.

Thanks and cheers! :)

Problem: I cant add media in the Box With Image nor in the Testimonials when using template builder! Help me please. When i press the add/ import media, nothing happens

PS in the comment before this 1 i was talking about templatebuilder not themebuilder

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

The option to insert/upload images is there in the template builder, next to the ’’anchor’’ button and the ’’cleanup messy code’’ button. Pressing the ’’add media’’ button like you would normally doesnt work. Its okay cause the option is still there.

New Issue: With the contact form, when i fill in a test form and press send, i get the email, but it doesnt show the name of whoever sent it. The message and email of the person are shown, but the name isnt.

Also, how can i add more functions to the contact from, for example a phone number, company name, test, etc?

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

You would have to edit the contact’s php files in order to achieve that. I’m afraid that goes beyond the scope of free support we can grant. Sorry!

In the template builder, how can i change the font or size of my tekst? pressing the styles button doesnt work, and there is no fontsize option?

FRESHFACE

Hi there!

For measurements and font: If you get Firebug plugin for Firefox or use Chrome’s right click > Check element feature you can inspect the elements and see which CSS controls it and which size it has. It will also tell you which CSS file to edit.

Thanks and cheers! :)
