theme preview runs on 3.4.2 currently without issues, so it can’t be themes fault. Try disabling any additional plugins ans see if it helps.

I’m Sure there is a compatibility issue in your theme.because I’ve installed this theme in another Wordpress website as well. It was working but wasn’t updated.now I updated to the new Wordpress version and it also not working now. Please help me with this.If you need I’ll send the url to you through the email Thank you.

EvGreen

as I said – theme preview is running on newest wp release without any issues: http://prntscr.com/ge477 so it must be either changes you introduced to it, or maybe some specific server settings. You can send me your acc/pass/link to wp and I’ll take a look on error log for you. Also, please do keep comments in one thread.

cheers

Hi,

I have my site set up to be just a blog and have the blog be the homepage. I have enough entries to create multiple pages, but when I click any of the links to other pages on the bottom, It just goes back to page one….what gives?

Thanks!

EvGreen

1) check if you got settings=>reading=>”blog pages show at most” set to “1”

2) try switching settings=>permalinks to “default” and see if it helps

3) if you won’t be able to fix it with those, mail me with your acc/pass and a link to your wp install, I’ll take a look myself

cheers

Hi, I used the theme to build a site similar to the preview and asked somebody to help me get it set up. Now I’m not sure if it happened correct. In particular I wanted a blog section with side bar right, just like http://themeforest.net/item/etherna-powerful-and-flexible-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/462474 – and I assumed that I could after everything was set up, create new blog posts using only the add new post feature in WP and a summary of the blog would show up on the blog page and visitors could click on the title or a ‘read more’ link and they would link to the full blog posts. But the way my guy has set up I’m now required to add a blog post as a summary AND a separate page with the full blog posts. What selection do I make where to ensure I have the blog – side bar right template and can enter a blog post once? Let me know if you need to see the site

EvGreen

it’s pretty easy – you just need to have a page (name of the page doesn’t matter, but lets say it’s “blog”), and from the “Page Attributes” box select “Blog-1 Page” as the template. By default it’s the one that has sidebar on the right, but it can also be modified in etherna panel, blog tab. And that’s it – you got your blog page set up, now you just need to add it to menu (appearance=>menus) and fill the blog-right sidebar (appearance=>widgets). I assume that all this is already done. So the last part is adding new posts and it’s dead simple as well – you’re missing just one thing, which is the “more” tag. It’s a button in the editor “sink” that draws a line which will separate the short excerpt of the post from a full one, it also adds the “read more” automaticly. Here is a screenshot of the button: http://prntscr.com/gt0r4

All in all, it seems that your helper did the install from ground up by himself. Maybe it would be more comprehensive for you if you did install the “dummy content” instead (like the guide suggests), and then remove and edit parts that you don’t need.

Hi I’ve been using your template for a while and have just noticed the its not responsive – is this a responsive design, it doesn’t seem render on an iPhone ? Thanks www.rusola.co.uk

EvGreen

Responsive design with this particular theme is non trivial matter ;) The gradients that are used for the main white block are image sprites and I’d either need to divide each segment into 3 (left,center,right instead of just one), and effectively tripple the amount of divs used, which is just stupid, or add 2 more sprites with all gradients scaled accordingly, which is unefficient and resource heavy. Well, there is the option of pure css3 gradients, but untill IE8 dies off I can’t really do that :(

However, I see all this responsive fever, and more and more people are asking for it, so I’ll definitely figure something out and will be adding this in the future. Hopefully I can squeeze this still in this year.

cheers!

Hi, I’m trying to use the “more” tag and got the blog page set up (empty) as you wrote, but now my first two test blog posts only show up with the summary text on the blog page below each other, but without a title, author details, or the more link. The direct link to the detailed page of the blog works with the permalink from the admin panel. Would you know what setting I might be forgetting?

EvGreen

maybe the other guy did some changes in php files? If you can make a screenshot of how the post looks from admin side, and perhaps a link to your page, that would help.

You can mail me from contact form here http://themeforest.net/user/EvGreen (look for the cake ;) )

Hi is there a way to change the color of tabs. I think the theme is great.

EvGreen

Yep, you will find a folder named “non minified files for developers” in the package that came from themeforest. There is a style.css file that is commented and divided into sections for each element, you can edit tabs colors there, save it and then upload to your server to wordpress/wp-content/themes/Etherna_WP/css/style.css and replace the old one

Hi, I’d like to use multilanguagual plugin but with your theme but I don’t know which is working? I have WPML plugin but I cannot install it to your theme.

Thank you Rok

EvGreen

Don’t have any experience with multilingual plugins mate, besides – WPML is a paid plugin nowadays, right? The theme works with multi-site, and is translation ready (.po,.mo files), so there should be no problem making it multilingual this way, plus I’ve seen some users doing that in the past. Anyways, is there any error showing up that prevents you from installing WPML ? Maybe there is some compatibility issue that I could help with. Also there are few ways to do multilingual: http://codex.wordpress.org/Multilingual_WordPress

Yes, you have to pay for WPML . I need site with four different languages. And wit WOML is we have compatibility issues. If you can help here it would be great. Can we switch to email?

EvGreen

sure we can :) just don’t get your hopes too high mate, I might be able to help a bit if it throws familiar error, but as I said – got no experience in that whatsoever. WPML guys should really be the ones with the answers :) especially if it’s paid plugin.

btw, when mailing add a link to your site and if possible acc/pass to wordpress

anyways, there are few other ways to do multilingual (check the link from my previous comment), so even if this one doesn’t pan out, you could try the others :)

cheers

edit: oh and btw, you need to contact me from the account that the theme was bought from, for obvious reasons :)

does Etherna work with the popular woocommerce plug-in for an e-commerce site?

EvGreen

yep, it works, it’s not styled for it however, so it would require additional styling and markup work from you to make it fit with the theme.

EvGreen what would I expect to pay for that custom work?

EvGreen

no idea really, from quick glance on the files I’d say it should close in at 16h of work, and possibly less for someone familiar with the plugin. Maybe there are some pitfalls that I don’t know of though :) If you’re asking if I’d take the challenge – can’t now, too many projects already ongoing atm. Try the forums here, there are many developers hanging around doing this kind of work exactly

Hey EvGreen,

My slider has disappeared. I updated the theme, deleted the theme from the directory and re-installed it, deleted the sliders, tried adding other slides.

The slider is stuck on the loader.

Any idea how I can remedy this to get the slider working again?

www. bluedirect. ca

Thanks

EvGreen

hey, you got a javascript error there that is causing this: http://prntscr.com/ht7q6 if I am not mistaken ga in this case stands for google analytics so my guess would be that you’ve put the google analytics code into the etherna panel input tab, but with <script></script> tags. The theme already wraps whatever is put in there into those tags so they double and cause the error, remove the script tag from there and it should work :)

Hey love the theme, was wondering if it was possible to have on different pages different sortable portfolios. For example page 1 will have art/music/photography while page 2 will have Logo/Business/Corporate and page 3 will have other ones. How would I do that? Thanks for your time and hard work!

EvGreen

it’s possible, but needs some php digging, you basicly need to replicate portfolio2.php file and make it let’s say portfolio2custom.php, then edit its name in the top of the file (so it reflects the change), then modify the file like this: http://prntscr.com/i3j0h , (and also replace the $ds_eth_portf_categories_list2 2 lines above, with that array ), where the numbers in the array are your categories IDs (how to check IDs: http://www.gabfirethemes.com/how-to-check-category-ids/ ). Once you’ve done that, just create new page in the wordpress, and choose the template for it to be the new name you changed in the top of that portfolio2custom.php file. That should work, and you can repeat the process as much as you want. It’s easier than it sounds :)

Hi EvGreen,

I would like to remove (or disable) the color bar from the template without compromising the other (colored) style elements. Can you tell me how that can be realized?

Many thanks in advance! Peter

EvGreen

you mean the bar in the background? just upload other background, without it :) (like a small grey jpg and set it to repeat) you can do that in etherna panel, color tabs

Hi

The permalink for portfolio pages is prepended with: http://domain/designsentry_portf

How do I edit “designsentry_portf” ?

Thanks!

EvGreen

go to appearance=>editor=>ds_sortables.php and add the highlighted part: http://prntscr.com/ircin , where the “projects” is the new name, then go to settings=>permalinks, and switch it to default, save then back to whatever you had before and save again. done :)

cheers
