Is there any shortcode for blog posts? I would like to have a static homepage with static text and some blog posts.

Also, can you or someone else recommend a widget/plugin that display the latest post with thumbnails in the sidebar that works with this theme?

EvGreen

Hey, so I’m not sure if I get you right, but you should be able to select “mainpage with blog” template to get that slider+static stuff+blog posts, much like this one does http://etherna.themeforest.designsentry.com/home/home-with-blog lemme know if that is what you needed.

As for the plugin – usually what you need in such situation is just add “extended” to your searched widget name, I think I’ve used this one for one of my projects http://wordpress.org/plugins/recent-posts-widget-extended/screenshots/

might need some small styling tweaks to make the thumbnails look nice

Hi, I absolutely adore your theme but I’m having the same logo upload problem as many others during the past 12 months or so: when I try uploading all I get is the ‘lightbox layer’ without any action options. Every browser, same thing.

I’m just an ‘end user’ but from your earlier replies I get that I should have version 1.2a instead of the 1.2 which I seem to have.

I can’t find an update option anywhere. Can you please help? Thanks a million in advance!!

PS: when I say ‘end user’ I mean I am the Admin user but I don’t do code.

hey :)

when you are logged in, here on themeforest, you should have a “downloads” tab like here: http://prntscr.com/2nrcyy , just go there and re-download the theme :) it’s 1.3 now – adds mobile version for smartphones. Just as always with updates though, do a copy of your files from the server, before overwriting them. You might have done some alterations to css files or php files, and forgot about them already, pain in the ass to loose all that :)

cheers

EvGreen

oh and if you are wondering about the update process – connect via FTP to your server, go to wordpress/wp-content/themes/Etherna_WP and replace all the files there with the new ones that are zipped in the themeforest package (not the whole help and stuff, just the theme itself)

Thank you, just what I needed, works like a dream now :D

Hi.. is it possible to setup a simple webshop on this theme?, and does anyone might have a few minutes to tell what shopsolution would be better, been looking at woocommerece, but can it work with this theme by any chance?

kind regards

EvGreen

it’s possible, not trivial though. You will most likely need a coder to do it for you. You should be able to find one at http://www.microlancer.com/ it’s one of envato marketplaces.

Woocommerce is certainly a viable choice, but It may be pricey. There are many others, take a look: http://vandelaydesign.com/blog/wordpress/ecommerce-plugins/

Hello, i noticed the demo is responsive, however my recent install of this theme is not responsive – is there a setting I am missing or not enabling? thanks in advance..

EvGreen

hey :) there was small update to the theme recently, and I didn’t even had a chance to update screenshot and such. You will need to re-download the theme and update it (make a backup of your site, as a failsafe) to get that responsivness.

I have just baought your theme: very good job, I really love it. I will start with 2 questions: 1) How do I change the text of the slogan area: ‘This is the space that I call slogan area ….’ 2): How do I use the foot like in the demo: mine remains empty even if I change the grid size in the Etherna WP panel?

Thanks for your help.

Default-user

Ok I have found for the slogan area …

EvGreen

maybe silly question: did you already put the widgets to the footer sidebar? appearance=>widgets

Default-user

Yes, but can not align it to the right …

EvGreen

had a look on your site, but the footer is completely empty, so it must be lack of widgets there. If you could add some there, then perhaps I could help you with the styling that you are looking for

Hey, awesome job on the theme But will you be developing a responsive version of the theme at some point?

EvGreen

hey, don’t know when you did get it, but there was update to the theme this year, and it has now a one stage responsivness http://prntscr.com/2xrgoa

Where is the option to make it responsive? For some reason we can’t get the updated site to be responsive. It continues to look like it was before.

Hello, still loving this theme and easy to use it. I have questions: - in the portfolio, how to get rid off the twitter and facebook like box?; - i’m using the sortable portfollio function and the categories come in the title (see here http://www.stephanefelix.be/portfolio-sortable)

Thanks for your help.

EvGreen

hey,

it’s built in function of the prettyphoto lightbox, to disable it, you will need to edit /js/plugins.js and edit this line: http://prntscr.com/31nnwl so the .prettyphoto() has curly brackets inside it and fill it with settings like .prettyPhoto({social_tools: ’’}); for more available settings check this out: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/documentation

cheers

Default-user
vins1892 Purchased

ok, thanks. What about the titles of the portfolio which come in the title?

EvGreen

in the lightbox? should be editable there as well, in general those are titles/names/descriptions of the images that were uploaded

cheers

Default-user
vins1892 Purchased

no, not in the lightbox. The names of the portfolio cat├ęgories (tous, appartements, ...) come in the title so that the title can not be read anymore.

EvGreen

ok. try this: (there is a lot of changes at once so I may be missing something but should work), add this to etherna panel input css tab:

#welcomemsg {
    text-align: center;
}
#portf2sorter a.superbutton {
    display: inline-block;
    float: none;
}
#portf2sorter {
    display: block;
    float: none;
    position: relative;
    text-align: center;
    width: 100%;
}

cheers!

I did not change anythng in the css: why am I the only one to get this issue?

EvGreen

basically the text and categories get cramped together, most users don’t use that much of both so they don’t experience this :) use the css I pasted above and it should make the heading text go above the sorting links, so both get more space

Hello!,

I just updated the theme and no problem with it except the responsiveness.

The banners and the map image I had aren’t fitting properly, size isn’t being changed and not fitting in the screen.

do I have to reload them to make them work ?

thanks

EvGreen

hey, can you send me a link to the problems you descibed? need to see that

cheers

Default-user
Gond Purchased

sorry for the late reply, here is the link to my site sls-school.com the picture is now fitting for some reason but the banner isn’t, I have reloaded it and updated the link in the picture but still no fix

also I have another question if you don’t mind, on the contact form the color of the text in each box is too light, doesn’t feel like it’s being filled, or so I am being told ;) so instead of the light grey could you tell me the code to put it to black please?

thank you

EvGreen

hey!

try this in etherna panel input css tab:

a img.aligncenter{max-width:100%;height:auto;}

it should fix the banner, but keep an eye if it won’t break anything else (particularly blog)

and the contact:

.inner_main input[type="text"]{color:#000000;}

it has also two other states:

.inner_main input[type="text"]:hover{color:#000000;}.inner_main input[type="text"]:focus{color:#000000;}

cheers!

Thanks it work! but only for the home page, the other banners on the other pages as well as my map remained the same :S

Default-user

another thing, on the pricing tables, is there a way when you hover on the tables for the cursor to not change as if the table was a link, atm the mouse cursor changes into hand as if the table was a link and can be interpreted as a broken link for users.

thanks!

EvGreen

try adding this to etherna input css tab:

 ul.tabber li a{width:100%;} 

, as for the banners
img {
    max-width: 100%;
    height: auto;
}

My site www.gibbco.net is not showing the startpage… All other pages shows as they should but not the startpage? Whats wrong?. I updated all permalinks and everything!

EvGreen

hmm try disabling plugins first, if that won’t help try if changing home page template to something else allows it to load properly (that would indicate there is something wrong going on with the slider). It’s really hard to say what could be wrong, but one thing that comes to mind – your server has disabled php_gd2 module turned off, and theme is not able to crop the images for slider correctly, you can ask your hosting provider about enabling it.

lemme know if this was helpful, cheers
