Hi there, I have implemented the theme and it looks great. I’ve been using it for a year now, and didn’t have any problems. However, recently I realized that when users click on a post’s title, it brings them to an empy page. Could you please help me figure out why it does that?

Here’s the link:

Just click on any post title and you’ll see that the page is empty instead of showing the actual full post. Thanks!

EvGreen

hey, seems like you got the left sidebar set to 9, the right set to 3 grid size, so the actual content is left with 0 :) go to etherna panel, single tab and change that left-sidebar to 0, or something lower.

Got it.. Thank you so much. I’m so happy with this theme, simply incredibly done.. I have installed and customized many themes, and your product is simply great!

Speaking of which, is there a way to have my website featured on a “client demo” section to demonstrate real applications of this theme? Thanks a bunch!!

EvGreen

am happy that you like it :)

I’ll add your site to my internal list, will have such a gallery on my own site, once I find the time to set it up that is :)

I’m having an issue getting changes to for the phone number and the copyright footer. Any ideas what I need to do?

EvGreen

well, there is not much that could go wrong, do you use advanced user tab in etherna panel? did you change the radio-select to “Yes”?

Default-user

Yes, I made changes in the advanced user tab and changed the radio select. Can I provide you a login and have you take a look?

EvGreen

sure

Default-user

What email should I send it to?

EvGreen

send it via contact form on my profile page: http://themeforest.net/user/EvGreen

Hello!

I would like to know if the top menu bar could be split into individual boxes to make is easier to see? also in the Home page, is it possible to set bigger click buttons with text in it? sorry if this sounds simple, as I am new to this. oh! and by the way, great theme!!

Thanks!

EvGreen

Hey,

not sure if I understand you right, but if you mean if it’s possible to have few rows of menu like that then it’s not possible, it just won’t stretch

as for the buttons – yes, it’s easy fix to css, you could make them look like this i.e: http://prntscr.com/kw0qj

Hi EvGreen!

Is your the theme compatible to the upcomming wordpress 3.5 ?

Thank you for answering my question

regards Boerge

EvGreen

there should be no problems with 3.5, I’ll check it myself when it’s released and if anything breaks I’ll be fixing it right away

Hello!

I just purchased your theme, and I am now trying to set it up. This is all very new to me and I am following every step on your documentation ( very clear thank you!) however after setting up the contact page, I cannot view it in “live mode” locally and i get a “The requested URL /contact was not found on this server.” message when clicking on contact from the menu, did I miss something?

thank you.

EvGreen

hey,

locally as in local server? maybe you got rewrites turned off, go to wordpress admin settings=>permalinks and set to default, then try again

cheers

it worked, thank you for your fast support, really appreciated the help, it makes this theme even greater!

EvGreen

btw, you can get the pretty permalinks to work with enabling the rewrite_module on your local server, it’s in the options – http://prntscr.com/lgoor – how it looks on mine

Hi, when do you update this theme for smartphones and tablets?

Regards

EvGreen

Hey, I’ll start working on it in January. My next theme – “Ascesa” that is coming next week is sporting full fledged 7-stage responsive system and will be kind of indication of how Etherna will behave after update. However, I am pondering if maybe I should re-write Etherna completly from the ground and release as new theme at reduced price, or maybe even free for those who bought the original-current one. The new one would reduce http requests, use gradients instead of gradient-images (allowing i.e for changes of colors not only for background, but also the main white block), new set of shortcodes including portfolio one (allowing for multiple sortable-type portfolios), new 3d-like slider and much more. The drawback would be dropped support for ie7 and ie8 not looking that hot, but well, those are 6 and almost 4 year old browsers so.. I guess I should do some kind of poll for this :)

Hi, I would like to add another phone number in the header, above the phone number which is populated from the field “Enter your company phone:”. I have entered a mobile but i also need a landline number.

Is this possible?

EvGreen

yep, in etherna panel, advanced user options you can switch the custom markup mode and just do add the phone there

Is there a way to add a Pinterest icon/link below the picture in the lightbox gallery (next to the facebook like and twitter icons)?

Is there a way to search this comment forum to see if someone already asked this question?

Might you be planning a responsive version of the theme?

Thanks!

EvGreen

hmm it’s possible but you need to fiddle with the files a bit. It’s done completely through prettyphoto plugin js, so you need to edit /js/plugins.js to do that. Best go to the theme package that you got from themeforest, and in “non minified files for developers” folder you will find plugins.js file, which you need to edit at line 322 where the prettyPhoto call exists.

Then change the default call from .prettyPhoto(); (at the end) to whatever other settings you want there. All the options and stuff you can find at http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/documentation in the “customization” part.

don’t worry about asking questions :) there is no viable way to search through the comments so all authors should be ready for that hehe :)

and yes, there will be responsive improvements, check the comment just before :)

Does the theme work with the latest releases of Wordpress? I bought it a while back but just using now on a new site. Installation seemed ok but now I try to upload my own logo and background the admin panel freezes / hangs when I click the ‘upload image’ button. I’m using the latest Firefox browser, Windows 7, etc etc… Never had this problem with other themes before in WP.

Also, when I uploaded a ‘logo.png’ file direct to the site via FTP to get round the problem, it appears in the header but it’s blurry / fuzzy. I’m looking to change any logo size parameters in the .css file but can’t see it. Any suggestions on these problems? See how it looks at my new site: lexographics.com

Thanks

EvGreen

hmm wp 3.5 changes the media uploads so it’s possible that the upload logo and upload background from etherna admin panel got broken, thanks for reporting this, I’ll have it fixed. Rest of the theme should work fine.

seems you got it to work now? looks ok on my side atm. Anyways, you could upload the logo at i.e 550px wide and then in header.php add width=”275px” to the logo part, essentially forcing it to smaller size and making it “retina-ready”

Hi,

We are beginning to use your theme (closed staging server for now) and I have encountered a little problem with the Etherna control panel: There are a lot of text fields that are labelled as “enabled only if you select Yes on the radio buttons above”, but when I try, it doesn’t look enabled, and my edits of the field are thrown away when I press Save, leaving the site with default text, not the text I entered.

Is there some special requirement to make these fields work and/or an alternate way to enter the information?

(P.S. Payment is handled through another Evato account, so it won’t show up as a badge on my comments).

EvGreen

which version of the theme you got?

also, if you’re using caching plugin – turn it off

Hey EvGreen,

I’ve loved the theme and it’s been so easy to use up until I’m trying to make some simple changes to a couple of things:

The website is www.legendstrainingcentre.com

1) I need the navigation menu to all line up, so that probably means to make the search bar smaller, but I cant figure it out.

2) I’m trying to use the FaceBook Like-Box widget as a widget in the sidebar on the blog page, and I can’t figure it out to save my life. When I tried to add the code to the spot, but nothing was working.

3) I can’t find where to change the “Container-Alpha-Slogan” for the blog page, anywhere.

Thanks a bunch!

EvGreen

Hey,

1)

.search{width:200px} .search input{width:139px}

those are the styles you need to edit, additionally you need to edit the img/container_sprite.png and make that search image smaller

2) code to the spot? it’s a widget, just drag-n-drop :)

3) it’s in etherna panel, blog tab

cheers

Default-user

1) Sounds good! Thanks!

2) I’m using a FaceBook “Like Box” app.

<script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = ”//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));</script>

div class=”fb-like-box” data-href=”http://www.facebook.com/pages/Legends-Family-Training-Centre/115222738541193?fref=ts” data-width=”275” data-show-faces=”false” data-stream=”true” data-header=”false”> I’d like to get it up in the footer, but it wont work!

3) Perfect! Thanks!

Hello,

I would like to know if it’s possible to edit the contact page and add some more fields in it, in particular I would like to add a “calendar” and give the opportunity to my customers to choose “preferred days” for an appointment with them.

thanks and happy new year!

EvGreen

hey,

you need to do some search for extension plugins to contact form 7, it’s very popular plugin so I’m sure there are calendar fields available for it too. Regarding adding fields – check the help again where I try to explain the contact form a bit, but ultimately head to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contact-form-7/ for the full docs on that.

Hello, I actually have another question, in the pricing table page, is it possible to prepare 5 blocks but actually have only 3 active, I would like to prepare all my plans, but only start with 3 at first and later activate the 2 others, by activate i mean make them visible online.

thanks again.

EvGreen

hmm you could prepare a page with that shortcode and then move it to trash – pages in trash remain hidden and you could re-enable them for up to 30days after trashing. Other than that, you could also change the date that the page was “posted” to a future one, so it will be hidden until that time

What’s the shortcode for the pricing table with a checked item? I’m looking at this: http://etherna.themeforest.designsentry.com/shortcodes.png but it doesn’t seem to have it.

I bought this them a while ago, so if there is new documentation, I would love to look at it!

EvGreen

it’s not an additional shortcode – it’s just image that was inserted into that spec shortcode like so: http://prntscr.com/ns75h you can get that icon, and many more here: http://www.iconfinder.com/search/?q=check 16×16px are preffered to blend in with the rest

Hi Please tell me it will be possible with your theme, we have portfolio view and I would like to transport client to next page or next side straight a way when he will click on image. I try to put in URL box in new portfolio page of other side URL but it only working if this is you tube URL.

Please answer Best regards Marek

EvGreen

not sure I get you right, do you want to 1)make the portfolio items in grid lead to another site when clicked on the image (or open in lightbox)? or 2) you want to make the detailed view of the portfolio item have next/prev links to another items?

1) can be done pretty easily if I remember by adding ?iframe=true to the end of the link that you put in the field, like http://www.google.com?iframe=true

2) is more complicated, but I’d guess there are plugins doing that

Default-user
wanzbig Purchased

Hello Thanks for answer, yes version 1 -make the portfolio items in grid lead to another side or another page in the same side when clicked on the image. But the idea with ?iframe=true do not bring solution. Any other ideas how to do it? Please help, best reagards

EvGreen

hmm apparently google is not working in iframe now, but the code should, i.e try http://www.iconfinder.com/?iframe=true&width=100%&height=100% only other option is to edit portfolio.php (or portfolio2.php if you’re using sortable version) and edit out the “allow gallery” part of it http://prntscr.com/og5ox , this way it should stop using lightbox upon click

edit: forgot that you might need one more thing – open up the folders that you got from themeforest, go to non-minified files for developers/js/plugins.js and at line 322 change the zoomer in .add(”.zoomer”) to .zoomer:not(.no_lightbox) then save and upload to your server to wordpress/wp-content/themes/Etherna_WP/js/ and last thing – in the place where you changed the allow_gallery there is also a class=”zoomer” add no_lightbox to it like this http://prntscr.com/og7bw

whole process is easier then it sounds really :)

EvGreen

oh and if you’re scared of doing changes to the files on your own – I can send you the files that I just made by replying to your question, just mail me

Hi,

I’ve a question about making a link on a image. It doesn’t matter what link I put on a image, it will always try to open a overlay popup (and the screen becomes grey) with the error “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist”.

The only thing I want is, to make the image clickable and go to another page (internal or external, doesn’t matter).

Is this possible?

EvGreen

pretty much the same question as the guy before – either use http://www.iconfinder.com/?iframe=true&width=100%&height=100% for loading pages in lightbox or remove “allow_gallery” like on the selection here http://prntscr.com/og5ox from portfolio.php/portfolio2.php/category-myportfolio.php

cheers

EvGreen

also, check the edit I made to the previous comment

Tnx, I found another solution as well. By removing the ‘wpimgload’ the zoomer wil stop working as well. Not sure if it breaks other things?

EvGreen

no, it’s all good :)

Also I have installed Yoast SEO plugin but when we edit a post or page the options of title, metatags, etc., appears hidden and also the options to show/hide dont work.

Hi. A friend bought this theme and he can’t get to update the theme options. It keeps giving him an error 403. Any solution to this. Thanks

EvGreen

check folder permissions on the server, try with permalinks set to default, disable all plugins and try again. 403 is quite generic one

Hi EvGreen,

The update theme is automatic or i to need to re-install it ?

Thanks

EvGreen

just replace the old files with new via ftp, current version is 1.2, 1.3 will be out in 2-4 weeks and then 2.0 that adds responsivness later down this quarter

Can you please explain a little more about how the sidebars work? I inserted both of these codes:

id="sidebar-01"][/gs_4z]
id="sidebar-01"][/gs_4z]

They worked fine but they both showed up on the left side and I need them to show up on the right side.

Thanks

EvGreen

you need to set the grid first so it would be like


[gs_6a]
some text
[/gs_6a]

[gs_3]
[sidebar id="sidebar-01"]
[/gs_3]

[gs_3z]
[sidebar id="sidebar-02"]
[/gs_3z]

that would give you double sidebar on the right

That moved the sidebar to the right but now my pictures are cut off, and it looks like there is plenty of room…

EvGreen

ye, because the 2 sidebars that are there are just of size 3, populate the sidebar-02 to see the other one http://prntscr.com/orhij

you can play with the gs numbers, and make the sidebars bigger, just make sure that all row sum up to 12 (like above 6+3+3)
