Hello! Today I’ve received an email notification of the available EDU theme update. Ok – I’ve downloaded it. But how can I apply this update to my already customized EDU theme now? I don’t want to reinstall everything from scratch and repeat all the customizations again. Any online update guide?

Many thanks in advance!

SmoothThemes

You will need to see the changelog section to know which file need update then simple replace these files. Next time you should use child-theme for easy update.

Hi there,

I can’t make it work properly. Even though I installed all the necessary and recommended plugins, I still can’t import the dummy data. I’m using wordpress 3.9 in Brazilian Portuguese.

How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance.

SmoothThemes

Go ahead and download out quick start files, you will get full demo data, menu , widget settings etc .

hi is there a search function available? available to put in the and if so can provide an example ?

SmoothThemes

There is just simple search. :)

Hi – I purchased your theme but the installation doesn’t look like the example you provided. I followed the quickstart very carefully and I get many errors. And your XML import guide also doesn’t help as the demo site doesn’t look the same.

I’ve posted comments on your forum but I still haven’t been given a good solution other than to follow the quickstart guide. I’ve spent way too much time on this so far so please let me know how to fix this ASAP or I will have to move on to a different theme.

Thanks.

SmoothThemes

Let me know your topic URL, I will let our supporter take a close look at your site.

Hi Guys, Are you working on integrating any support for an LMS for the EDU theme? Or do you have any suggestions for LMS to use with your theme. I want to ensure minimal compatibility issues and am in process of reviewing LMS options. Thanks for your help, Cheers.

SmoothThemes

Currently no plan for LMS in EDU, sorry to tell you that.

Hi,

I am about to purchase your theme, I just have one query.

Can the “Courses, Apply Now, Plan a Visit” sections on the home page be each set to 3 different colours – ie. not all in the same colour (As in your demo) as I needed to change each one to a different colour, not just in rollover.

Also, can a background image be added or the background colour changed to any colour?

Thanking you

SmoothThemes

Yes, you can change the color of these section.

You can easy use Custom CSS to change the style for body.

Regards.

Hello When i tried to install the Edu_Quickstart package i get this error message: WordPress database error: [MySQL server has gone away] – phpMyAdmin SQL Dump — version 3.5.7 — http://www.phpmyadmin.net — – Host: localhost — Generation Time: Mar 31, 2014 at 09:13 AM — Server version: 5.5.29 — PHP Version: 5.4.10 SET SQL_MODE=”NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO”

Crap! well that’s screwed up: MySQL server has gone away

I contacted my hosting provider in order to verify the problem and they try and let me know that: I have tried several times to install the applicaiton but unfortunately to no avail. I see this error on my end:

Crap! well that’s screwed up: MySQL server has gone away

The SQL file has very small size, about 1,6MB and it should not reach the MySQL timeout limits.

To avoid the MySQL timeout limit I have tried to import the SQL file: sql/sample_data.sql manually trough console and I found that there is an error in the SQL syntax and the dump file can not be imported:

ERROR 1231 (42000) at line 5380: Variable ‘character_set_client’ can’t be set to the value of ‘NULL’

Probably this cause the “MySQL server has gone away” error. You should contact the theme developers and ask them to provide you with a working theme package. Then you should be able to install it without any problems.

Please help me, because i really need to use the Edu theme like it is on the demo. And i purchased it because i like the look of the demo.

many thanks.

Can you make changes in next update of this theme in contact form so i can make File Uploading and Attachment.

Thanks in advance.

SmoothThemes

You will need to use custom form, by default EDU doesn’t support these field.

You can try gravityforms(premium), contact form 7(free) plugin.

Regards.

I have posted comments on your forum i sent you many email but I still haven’t been any solution other than to follow the quickstart guide or use the default installation for both i got error. I sent you my url, database admin info and cpanel login info. But, you never help me or provide me a good indication. That is not normal. I have spent too much time on this so far so please let me know how to fix the problem. Please, please, ASAP Thanks.

Our devs still working on the quickstart files and you will see it by tomorrow at your topic.

Ok great template but a little heads up for those having problems working out how to import the sample data so it looks like the template you bought. Found on WP 3.9 had to install a plugin to import to install the XML file by clicking TOOLS>>IMPORT>>WORDPRESS>>look for a plugin called ‘WordPress Importer’ this allows you to import your sample data from the XML file, i.e. assets folder>>dummy-data>>xml file. TO IMPORT the header had to go to the LayerSlider WP link in the WP Dashboard and then click the browse for json slider file and then import, which is in the same folder as above (only 2 files there anyway so hard to go wrong). MENUS NOT DISPLAYING so into the appearance>>Menus>>click the Primary Navigation box at the very end and click save. Got it all working with all sample data like it looks on site. Finally you need to install a couple more plugins…Contact form 7 and Woocommerce if you want that side of it to work also..hope this helps somebody.

SmoothThemes

You can download the quick start files and install it like the guide : http://www.smooththemes.com/download-quick-start/

what shortcode should be used to get the “button” icons to show up on the mega menu? like the “pages” dropdown in the demo. want text with icon and rounded box around it to show up for menu links.

SmoothThemes

You can go to post editor screen, insert button shortcode and copy it, paste to mega menu :)

Hello and congrats for this great work!

I have a pre-sale question:I am looking for a theme specifically designed for educational agencies in which they can log in individually ( multiple user) and create their own page with: experience, photo, prices of their courses, customer reviews, availability (booking plug-in) make appointments, qualifications and the option for the clients to get in contact with them or book their courses.

In your opinion, is your theme suitable to do this?

Thanks you very much for your help Good luck!.

SmoothThemes

Edu can’t works that way. Sorry to tell that :)
