Hello! I purchased the theme and I think it’s great. Very easy to use and the design is perfection. I am having one issue, though. Sometimes the twitter feed doesnt work, it will just say “no public twitter messages” and other days it works. Is this just a twitter issue or could it have to do with something on the theme development end?

Thank you! Cara

Hello, toplinedesign. Thanks for purchase my theme. I think it’s twitter issue, I have not seen such problem on my live preview website.

Hi,

The imageslider gets blocked in Internet Explorer, you can only view it if you allow to display content. In chrome it just loops the load bar and doesnt show anything. In firefox it works fine.

Due to an antivirus, how is this possible? I am using the antivirus Avira.

Before I purchase this, is there a way to change the highlight color? I’d like to have it dark blue for a male oriented website, the colors on the example are all very feminine

temash

Went ahead and purchased it but then went to add it to my website and as soon as I activated it the entire site went down. I had to uninstall the theme completely and revert back to an old one to retrieve it. Any thoughts?

temash

Hello. Send me your WP access? If you have WP-PageNavi plugin installed, you should uninstall it befor theme install.

Just purchased this theme. Am looking at the help videos, but the basic installation is missing a step (at least one that I need). The video shows the user activating Especial from the dashboard>Appearance>Themes menu at <mycompany>.wordpress.com/wp-admin/themes.php. How do I get Especial to appear in that menu? I have downloaded a zip file to my local computer. Bonrob

Love this theme. Your help videos are excellent. I have a question about the size of the pictures in the sliders (homepage and portfolio). Is there anyway to control the size? I have specified thumbnail (150×150 px), but they are filling the entire slider, but showing only part of the picture. (For example, I have someone’s head, and all I see is her forehead and hair, no eyes, no mouth, nothing below the forehead). I have tried using the full size image (600×600), and the same thing happens. Bonnie

temash

Hello, Bonnie. Thanks for purchase my theme. You can find all info about slider image sizes in documentation.

For correct work sliders you should use the following sizes:

Image Slider 1 – Width should be 960px. Height can be set in OptionTree panel > Homepage slider > Slider Height (By default: 290pix)

Image Slider 2 – Width should be 670px. This slider has fixing height – 290pix.

Video Slider – Width should be 670px. Height can be set in OptionTree panel > Homepage slider > Slider Height (By default: 290pix)

Accordion slider – Width should be 750px. Height can be set in OptionTree panel > Homepage slider > Slider Height (By default: 290pix)

Portfolio and Blog sliders has following sizes: Width – 670pix. Height can be set in OptionTree panel > Blog/Portfolio slider > Slider Height (By default: 250pix)

I will look at the documentation again, but I think that the issue is scaling. I have specified the correct width. The thumbnails at the bottom of the slider are all scaled correctly, but the pictures in the actual slider (290 px high) are scaled incorrectly, regardless of what size of picture I specify. (It displays only the top 290 px of the picture. It seems I must specify a slider height of 500 px to display most of the picture, and that is far too large for what I want (and the whole picture still is not displayed anyway).

temash

Scaling only slider thumbnails by timthumb plugin. Main slider images not scaling. So you should prepare images for slider by sizes in documentation.

Love the theme but I’m having a major problem. I don’t want to show Homepage Post, instead I want to show full posts directly on my homepage. So on Option Tree I checked the “Show Homepege Content Section” and I unchecked the “Homepage posts”. The problem is there is no comment box. People can’t comment on my post and they cant even click the post cause it isn’t a link. HELP !

Hi Temash, very nice theme:)

I’m having serious problem with wp e-commerce plugin. When I activate the plugin, drop down menu and image slider stops working. I think this issue is somehow related with different versions of jQuery being loaded. I can’t manage with this issue myself. If you can have a look at my site I would be very thankful :)

temash

Hi, wolf138. Thanks for purchase my theme. What version of Especial theme do you use? Send me your WP access with website URL . Maybe you have conflict with other plugins (?) Especial not e-commerce theme so I have not tested to work with wp e-commerce plugin. You can hire someone for theme customization for e-commerce.

Hi. I’ve been using the FancyBox plugin with this theme & it’s always worked fine but now it’s no longer working. I deleted it and installed it again and it still doesn’t work. I deleted it and I installed another plugin FancyBox for Wordpress & that one doesn’t work either. What happened?

temash

Hello, lovemarisol. Theme uses PrettyPhoto lightbox plugin. I think you should disable it (remove it from php files) first. I am not provide customization. You can hire someone for that. Also make sure you use latest 1.6 version of Especial theme.

Default-user

I’m confused. I didn’t know the theme used PrettyPhoto when I got it so I installed FancyBox and the lightbox worked fine. What stopped it from working? I didn’t make any changes besides update Wordpress whenever it said there’s a new update.

Default-user

I updated to version 1.6 and the lightbox now works. :-)

But when I uploaded to 1.6 my posts no longer show the featured image. Is that the way it’s supposed to be? The featured images shows on the homepage just not on the actual post page.

temash

Send me please WP acess and I’ll check feature images

Default-user

I sent you an email.

I just purchased your theme, the design is awesome. However when uploading the zipped file to my wordpress account, it reads:

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet, Theme install failed.

How do i get the missing file?

temash

Hello, oceanBlu. Thanks for purchase. Do NOT upload the final download folder. Extract it and find especial-theme.zip inside and upload this zip file.

Hello,

I love your template but have an older version. I need to update it to version 1.6 but I don’t see how the new files are accessed. How do I update from 1.4 to 1.6.

Thank you.

Loving the theme! It’s been pretty simple to customize and is super well designed. Your videos have been very helpful.

Having one issue… The home page video slider looks good, but when I go to play the video, the slider continues to move. Kind of a poor user experience, as I don’t think a user would automatically assume they need to pause the slider before loading the video itself. And if they don’t they won’t be able to immediately understand where their played video went. Any suggestions? I can’t see any way to control this through the theme settings.

Here’s the site I’m working on: http://flattrack.ironroots.org/

Thanks for the help!

temash

Hello, CynthiaFlatTrack. Thanks for purchase my theme and nice words. Theme uses dualSlider for video. But this slider does not automatically stop when playing a video. I can only advise to disable auto slideshow play. Open videoslider.php and find line:117
auto:true,
and replace to
auto:false,

Hi,

I have purchased the theme last week and is in the process of setting it up, I have a problem with the sliders image it’s not showing up, I saw the FAQ mentionted to set the cache to 777. That’s very insecure isn’t it. Further to it my Hosting service provier only allows 775 max. What can be done to this? Thanks

Karen

Using the SPECIAL Theme. I have a problem with the accents in Spanish when I choose in the OptionTrre/General/Desyrel font, the letters with the accents in Spanish are bad. The Desyrel is very pretty but thus it is not worth to me. somebody can help me?

temash

Hi, I used Desyrel from http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/Desyrel. Maybe this font not support Spanish. Try to use another one.

Default-user

Thank you very much, I have thought the same so I replaced the desirel-webfont.ttf file in wp-content/themes/especial/font/desyrel-webfont.ttf with desirel.ttf with Spanish support, but the problem remain. During ½ second I see the correct character whit accent, but later is change to character with other Font. I do not know that is the use of the files desyrel-webfont.svg and desyrel-webfont.eot So I only replace the desirel-webfont.ttf

temash

Show me please your website URL

Default-user

My Web is www.monicadetomas.com. As you see in my name 2 accents, But now I have a worse problem, I have updated plugin option tree, and have disappeared the theme options, I can modify nothing, I have a message in the top that Wait says! You need to install and activate the OptionTree plugin! (See Help Files). But Option tree is installed and activate… HELP ……..

Default-user

temash

Please uninstall OptionTree plugin. New OptionTree version 2.0.4 – 2.0.6 not working correctly with theme. Please download previous version form – http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/option-tree.1.1.8.1.zip and install it.

Default-user

Thanks, I have uninstall OptionTree version 2.0.6 and I have installed the 1.1.8.1 version, and have the control again. Thank you and heavens? Desyrel font http://www.fonts4free.net/desyrel-font.html from Aphostropics Labs (its free) have the Spanish and European accent support. I see several desyrel-webfont files in your font directory, but I only replace desyrel-webfont.ttf, and I comment using the preview I see the Name (Mónica de Tomás) correct , but ½ second later is (MÓnica de TomÁs) with the leter Ó and Á in other font no desyrel. In the Logo and other parts I cant use one Image, but not in the Slider Title and Description.

I´m using this theme. I upgraded the plugin OPTION TREE and my site is a mess after this. I sent an e-mail to the creator of the plugin and said the theme has to be upgraded. My site doesn´t have a logo cause it´s been removed, my portfolio slider is gone. Basically, it wen´t back to scratch and this error keeps on popping up: “Wait! You need to install and activate the OptionTree plugin! (See Help Files)”

Can you help me? Can I go back to the old plugin version?

It´s really important and urgent.

THANK YOU !

Daniela Mar.

Thanks – Dave
