Hi, just purchased your theme and i have two questions:

After a default installlation of WP 3.5.1 and Ekho the home page shows ”?>” in the top left corner. Template itself works fine.

Your demo shows a fixed ‘full animated’ menu where mine disappears if it does not longer have the mouse ‘focus’. How can I get the same style?

many thanks, Mike

FinalDestiny

re-download the theme to fix the first issue

for the second one, add this to style.css:

#header.animatedfull {
left: 0 !important;
}

Hello, I was using your customer CSS box to change the logo dimensions and noticed that I have to insert the !important attribute each time. I wanted to point this out b/c usually I was thinking this has to do with the positioning of the stylesheets?

Does this mean that I would had to add !important each time here? Thank you

body #logo { width: 325px !important; height: 100px !important; }

FinalDestiny

I noticed that, will be fixed in the next versions. :)

Hello, I inserted a video background on the homepage. I run into a problem when I try pressing the get in touch button. I noticed a similar issue on your demo when pressing the “join our newsletter”.....the user is sent to the youtube video page instead.

Can this be fixed? Thank you

Hm, what’s your URL?

Default-user

I’m building locally right now, but try this on your demo

http://teothemes.com/wp/ekho/homepage-with-youtube-video-background/

The video frame is above the footer buttons “get in touch” and “join my newsletter”. I am not able to click on these buttons because the video is in the way

FinalDestiny

Try adding this to style.css:

.mb_YTVPBar {
top: 0 !important;
bottom: inherit !important;
}
Default-user

nice-ness! looks to be fixed on the homepage. Thank you

I see you mentioning an update to come. Can you let us know about when that might be?

FinalDestiny

I don’t have an ETA right now, it will mostly consist in fixing of reported bugs and multi-lingual support for the flags at the bottom

Hi, i am a little bit frustrated. because the template isnt responsive on iphone and ipad and the feature – video on the homesite – doesnt work. do you have an update with a real responsive design and how could we update it without loosing the data.

FinalDestiny

It’s responsive, are you using the latest version available on TF? I checked it on iPhone and everything works just fine.

Default-user

What is the lastest version? 1.1?

Default-user

thanks, check my site www.seventears.ch. it looks not fine. i will download the template again and hope it will works fine.

FinalDestiny

Replace everything you have in css/responsive.css with:

Thanks. We replaced the code. it looks much more better. One mistake: the logo (top, left) is several duplicated. You have a solution?

FinalDestiny

Add this to style.css:

body #header.navbar #logo {
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
}
Default-user

Thanks.

100! :) And its me! :) Thanks for developing such a nice theme! Question: How can i put/activate flags at the bottom left corner like in the demo?

FinalDestiny

They were put there only for demo purposes, since WP doesn’t offer a multi-lingual solution by default, the integration of the flags with any 3rd party plugin is not covered, but planned for the next versions.

They’re in footer.php, but hidden in the css files, if you’ll post a URL, I’ll tell you what to remove from your css files.

Hi, Firstly thanks very much for producing such a great theme.

I am looking at this theme and have one question about the main content section. It looks like it is fixed width, and causes a horizontal scroll bar in the browser. It works fine on an iphone, so that bit is great.

Is there a way to make it dynamic width?

Thanks.

FinalDestiny

Hmm, what are your screen dimensions? It should look fine on all the screens

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply.

I have tried this on 2 machines, A Ubuntu machine with a screen resolution set to 1280×1024 on a 21 inch monitor. I have also tried it on my 24inch Mac and it has the same problem.

When the browser (I have tried a variety of browsers) is full screen, then it is fine, but if I change the size of the browser and make it smaller, the scroll bar appears. But it is not all widths, Some sizes the words wrap nicely, but other times they don’t.

You can test this by sizing the browser window and put the right hand side where the top line of text says “Nulla quis sem”.

When I do this the main content doesn’t resize and the text doesn’t wrap.

I hope this info helps?

FinalDestiny

This is not how you test responsiveness, devices have certain widths, what you get when resizing the browser is not responsive, you may get widths like 950px where no tablet or smartphone uses that dimension. You can check on a real tablet or mobile phone and it should look fine

Default-user

Thanks for your response, but I don’t mean that its not responsive. I just mean that if your browser is sized different to fullscreen, then it may have problems.

I personally don’t have my browser allways maximized to full screen size, particularly on my Mac. So I was hoping that the width of the content could be set at a percentage of window size, or allways 50px from the right hand edge of the browser window, or something similar.

What are your thoughts?

FinalDestiny

No, it’s not optimised for different widths, it’s responsive for the standard dimensions, which is the standard in web, the theme is using the skeleton grid system.

Default-user

No probs. Thanks heaps for your fast response.

FinalDestiny

You’re welcome

You have done some great work on this theme. I am very interested in it. You mention that it is fully responsive, which I understand to mean that it adjusts to and works with mobile devices such as iPads and iPhones. I have tried the live demo on both the iPad and iPhone and the background video does not play on either device. Am I missing something? Do you have an example of a site using this theme that is truly responsive? I see this site plays on iPads with a similar full screen background video. http://www.lifeofpimovie.com

FinalDestiny

It works on iPad and iPhone, but can’t guarantee compatibility with all the devices on all the features like youtube background, all sliders / etc since mobile phones behave in a different way, not like the big desktop version

Default-user

I understand, except other sites such as Life of Pi and even other themes that are not as good as your theme in every other way, still play their background you tube, Vimeo and HTML5 videos full screen, in the background, on the iPad, yet I am unable to get your demo to play the background video. It would make a huge difference if it would work properly on the iPad.

FinalDestiny

I’ll check it when I’ll have a chance, on the official iPad simulator from apple, which most of the time is identical to the real device, it works fine

Hey there! As all others have said, great work on this theme and thanks so much for your fantastic support.

Is there a way to mute the sound on the video in the background on the homepage?

FinalDestiny

By default unfortunately that’s not possible. :(

Add this to style.css:

#menu .jt-menu a {

awesome thank you so much! Do you happen to know how I might be able to add a button to the homepage, easily?

FinalDestiny

It requires custom coding, in home.php

Hello, great work on the theme. I have an issue with the Sequence Slider layout, I have 11 images that I’d like to show and while I was able to resize the main image, in the CSS, the thumbnails seem to be given their sizes of 110px by 110px somewhere else. I believe for my 11 image thumbnails to fit I wold need to resize the images.

Also, I noticed that the Sequence Slider is not responsive. When on a mobile device the images go off the screen and it doesn’t look good. I appreciate your response. Let me know if you need to reach me for an example.

info@alcantaramedia.com
FinalDestiny

yes, the thumbs are resized in the code to 110×110, that’s the standard dimensions. As for sequence, can you elaborate?

Default-user

I’d like to change the thumbs to 50×50 instead of 110×110 where do I do this at?

The sequence slider home page is not responsive, it breaks on mobile devices and ipad.

FinalDestiny

It looks quite ok for me on the tablet http://prntscr.com/wle2z

as for the dimensions, try changing them in functions.php:

            $thumb = aq_resize($image, 110, 110);
            if(!$thumb || $thumb == '')
                $thumb = $image;
            echo '<li><img style="width: 110px; height: 110px" src="' . $thumb . '" alt="" /></li>' . PHP_EOL;

Default-user

Thanks for the response, this is what I was looking for!

I haven’t had a lot of time to dig into the “why” of this… however when I activate this theme and go to the theme settings for ekho it shows a blank page :( Any ideas?

FinalDestiny

Try disabling your 3rd party plugins / reinstalling the theme

Great theme! Just started working with it and love it so far. I am having one issue with it though. I am using the carousel portolio pagetemplate for the following page http://tyaxadventures.whistlerwebandprint.com/guided-adventures/ and it seems like the last post in the list is having issues the the slide show. It looks as though the jquery is not getting applied to the this one. Do you have any insight? Also is it possible to pull the post exerpt into the text area instead of the truncated version of the post text?

WOW, this is AMAZING and (I bought your SCRN n LUV) you sir with your versatility of design skills, and all site ‘mobile friendly’ are One of THE BEST Web and WP Designers Ever!! We All Thank YOU FinalDestiny, even just a pleasure to look at and experience your work through the demos #BigFan indeed! I may have a project for this… the only thing, is there any way to have the menu on mobile view not be the Pop Out bar style, but a Smooth Drop down menu (It would only compliment the rest of the beauty of your work and site) Either way, its absolutely AMAZING -Sterling

FinalDestiny

Hello. Thanks for your kind words, right now this is the only available dropdown menu style, but if you can give me an example of what you’re looking for, I will surely take that into consideration for the next updates / themes.

I noticed there seems to be a vertical pixel shift on menu when using the Vertical on left menu option. It shifts around a bit when first moused over. It seems to correct itself after each item has been expanded a few times but happens on each page. Can you suggest a fix? Thanks in advance for you assistance!

http://tyaxadventures.whistlerwebandprint.com/guided-adventures/
FinalDestiny

That’s the default behaviour, it’s not a bug

Default-user

Can you please let me know how to override this then? I do not want the menu items to shift if possible

FinalDestiny

Add this to style.css:

#header.vertical #menu .jt-menu, #header.vertical #menu .jt-menu li {
height: 37px;
}

for the left sidebar (or right sidebar) page, is it possible to expand the width of this page?

FinalDestiny

unfortunately not, it uses the grid system

could you please tell how how i can add another menu item to the footer next to the ‘Get in touch’ menu? I want to add something like privacy policy. thankyou!

FinalDestiny

The code is in footer.php, but it requires a good deal of customization n order to achieve that
