Hi There, Thanks for the great theme. Quick question for you. I’m unable to create columns on posts or pages. I’m using WP 4.0 and am using I copy/pasted the code directly from the http://evergreenpa.org/themes/evergreen-sports/shortcodes page and it still does not work. I do see there is a col-a and a col-b that creates the left and right columns. I still am unable to create the columns. My site is www.nosehounds.org. Your time and help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, do you have the shortcodes plugin installed? https://wordpress.org/plugins/simnor-shortcodes/

Thanks for the fast response. Oh That was an easy resolution. Thanks. I do recall reading that in the documentation now that you mention it. I just installed it and it seems to be working correctly. Thanks.

Hi, bought your terrific theme. Only problem that I’ve got is that I do not get the fixtures to show in the fixtures page even as done as instructed using the shortcode [fixtures_tableĀ season=”2014”]. (My season is called 2014). Any ideas?

evergreenpa

Hi, it should be showing, can I get a link to your site and some login details so I can see how it’s set up in the admin area. Please use the contact form via my profile page to send those details.

Hi there

My main menu is quite long so it’s disappearing under the Next Feature box. Is it possible to disable the Next Fixture box on the home page?

Thanks

evergreenpa

Yes, if you add this to the custom css field on the theme options page:

If you would like to hide it on just the home page:

body.home #site-nav .next-fixture { display: none!important; }

If you would like to hide it on all pages:

#site-nav .next-fixture { display: none!important; }

Cheers, Simon

Hi there! I’m looking for a way to show a real-time result of the match is possible. For example in the “next match” space?

evergreenpa

Hi, I’m afraid there isn’t the option to do that with this theme.

Hi, today I saw my website and the results plugin has moved to the second line… Was there any upgrade of the theme?

Have a look to the home

http://beta.unihockey-magdeburg.de/

Any answer?

evergreenpa

Hi, this is a bug in the latest version of Chrome, there was a fix made to the last version of the theme but I think you’re still using an older version, so you can update the theme or to fix just that issue you can add this custom css to the theme options:

.home-widgets { overflow: visible; }

Cheers

Thank you!

I saw that it was a problem only in Chrome, anyway thanks for answer and it is solved.

Pre-Puchase Question:

Is this suitable for 1 – Club with 5-7 teams / sorted by different age groups ? Also, I didn’t see in the demo – an event calendar listing ? is there an option for a event listing ? ex: next practice, next game – date and time.

Please let me know. thanks

Hi, you can have as many teams as you like. There isn’t an events calendar, but there are plugins for that if you want that kind of thing, there’s only the fixtures listings for the matches/games. The plugin is free to use (http://wordpress.org/plugins/simnor-sports-club-manager/) so you can use it without purchasing the theme. The theme is just the design.

Cheers

Hi, i have a problem with the “notfound.php”. Please try a serach ex. http://evergreenpa.org/themes/evergreen-sports?s=search-xyz the sidebar is not displayed correctly ??

evergreenpa

Hi, this looks like a bug in the theme, thanks for letting me know, I’ve added it to the list of fixes for the next version.

Cheers, Simon

OK thank you.

Hi :-) and the next question… you have 3 galleries http://evergreenpa.org/themes/evergreen-sports/galleries/ I use 20 Galleries and i have no page break , you know

<div class="posts-navigation"> <div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link(__('Previous', 'sntheme')); ?></div> <div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link(__('Next', 'sntheme')); ?></div> </div>
evergreenpa

Hi, currently it will just show all galleries on that page because it’s a shortcode and not a page template, I’ll look at adding pagination in the next version of the theme though.

Cheers, Simon

Gustafsson

OK thank you.

You should be able to do that by going to the teams page in the admin and then clicking the number under the “Fixtures” column.

hi Simon,

What’s the CSS code to change (increase or reduce) the padding around header area?

Thanks in advance

evergreenpa

Hi, it’s:

#site-header { padding: 30px 0; }

so increase/decrease the 30px

Cheers, Simon

Hi,

I have a problem with 404 when trying to access fixtures, players etc. on my page: http://sport.borsholm.dk/

Can you help me?

evergreenpa

Hi, if you go to the Settings -> Permalinks page and click the “Save Changes” button then it should refresh the permalink structure and solve that problem.

hi Simon, Is the ‘Photo Gallery Widget’ not a responsive? I have used it on my website and setup the picture count as 9 and dimensions as 100×100px, which looks fine on a larger computer screen. But when I view it on a smaller screen/ipad, row and col dimentions are changed. I would like pictures to resize and stay within the box. Is there any other better way to handle this? thanks

evergreenpa

Do you have a link to your website? because I’m not sure what you mean.

Cheers

Default-user

I have sent you the details via email

evergreenpa

Hi, the photo gallery widget you’re using isn’t part of the theme so doesn’t come under the support policy, you’ll need to contact the developer of the plugin for support on that.

Cheers

Hi Simon, thanks for an awesome theme. I’m having an issue with the player pages. When I set a player’s featured image it also appears as a separate image on the player’s webpage – duplicating itself. Is there any way to turn this off?

Example: http://goo.gl/HuIJEB

Thanks in advance

evergreenpa

Hi, sorry I’m not sure what you mean. The image on the right hand side of the page is coming from the sidebar, so you’d have to not use that gallery widget if you don’t want that there. Is that the extra image you were referring to?

Cheers

Default-user

Sorry Simon, I had a total brainfart. I thought that recent galleries had to be defined before appearing on a page. Thanks for replying though!

I’m sorry but i need your help with updating the theme.

First of all Wordpess doesn’t tell me that there is newer version (I’m on 1.4 but in themeforest there is already 1.5). So why is that? How can update the theme without using wordpress? Is there a way? And if so, will it affect changes i made in the custom.css. I downloaded the theme and wanted to reupload in wordpress, but wordpress tells me the theme already exists, which is logical to me but how can i update the theme? Replacing the whole folder via ftp? This is the only way i can think of, but I’m scared that at end nothing will work anymore.

Thanks for your help!

Cheer, I just realized another problem.

When I create a gallery with wordpress the captions of the picture are not on the right place. For example I created a gallery on a site without using the theme options for galleries, because i don’t want to show this gallery on our gallery page. When I’m creating it on wordpress everythin looks right like you can see here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3601287/1.JPG But when i save this page and watch what it looks like, it’s like this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3601287/2.JPG Here is a link to the site I’m talking about: http://beta.vfb-schillingsfuerst.de/?page_id=46 And here is a link to our gallery-page: http://beta.vfb-schillingsfuerst.de/?page_id=50

So I’m not using the gallery option of the theme because i’dont want to show this gallery on our gallery page.

Maybe my problem is hard to understand but i don’t know how to properly explain it to you in english. I hope you can understand and help me!

Thanks for your time!

evergreenpa

Hi, regarding the updating, ThemeForest has released a plugin for that: https://github.com/envato/envato-wordpress-toolkit however if you can do it via ftp then I’d suggest you do that as that’s much safer.

So log into your ftp and go to wp-content/themes and you should see a folder called “evergreenSports”, first thing to do here is to download that folder to your computer so you have a backup of it if anything goes wrong. Then back on your ftp, rename the folder to “evergreenSports-old”. Unzip the new version of the theme on your computer so you have the new “evergreenSports” folder and upload that. You should then have both “evergreenSports-old” and “evergreenSports” in your themes folder. If you go to your website now then it will be using version 1.5 automatically.

Looking at your custom.css file it doesn’t seem to have any changes, so were you referring to code you added in “Custom CSS” in the theme options, if you were then the update wont remove that, it should still work. If you’ve made changes to any other files though then you’ll need to ensure that you replace the new file with your edited version.

The gallery styling issue is something you can fix by adding the following custom css:

.gallery img { border: none!important; margin: 0 auto 10px auto; }

Cheers

Hi Simon,

Is there a way to reduce the font size of the menu items ? I have added a new menu item but it is hidden by the next fixtures bar. Would like to reduce the font size as I would like to keep both !.

Thanks Martin

evergreenpa

Hi, in the custom css field in the theme options, add the following code:

#site-nav ul li a { font-size: 13px; }

and that should reduce it down, although you may want to reduce the padding instead with this code:

#site-nav ul li a { padding: 0 16px; }

Cheers, Simon

Hi Simon. That did the trick thanks for the quick response :)

Hi

I have installed the theme OK but the Theme Options is blank. There is no tabs or save changes button.

Thanks

evergreenpa

Hi, that shouldn’t be happening. Could you try re-installing the theme and if that doesn’t work then can you send me some wp-admin login details via the contact form on my profile so I can delve further. We may need to turn on debugging as well and that will require me to have ftp access. If you are using plugins on your site then try disabling those one by one to see if that makes a difference, in case there’s a conflict somewhere.

Cheers, Simon

Is it possible to create one Team-Member with optional “Player Options” once and donĀ“t enter the same things on every new Player.

Is it possible to change the sorting of a Team???

Is it possible to import a XML File to the Fixtures?

Tnaks for the Great theme and the Support

Cheers

evergreenpa

Hi,

1) I’m not 100% sure what you mean but you can create a player and then use a cloning plugin such as this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicate-post/ to create copies of that player.

2) Yes with this pluginhttps://wordpress.org/plugins/post-types-order/

3) I can but you’ll need to send me an email via the contact form on my profile page so I can reply with the file as an attachment.

Cheers, Simon
