Thanks !

Litle bug in the promotion_box short code (perhaps other ones ?) : it does not take apostrophes :)

Hi SoftWebMedia,

Great theme! I’ve just purchased it and I’d like to disable the slider, but there is no option to do this in the admin area. What’s the easiest way to this? I assume it will be lines in the php files that will have to be commented out somewhere. Please help. Thanks in advance!


Hi gatorherb,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can disable home page slider and add other content in header area from index.php file. ( ..wp-content/themes/evision/index.php )

Go to line #4 of index.php file and you will find below code where you can disable slider by removing this code -> get_template_part('content', 'slider');

<div id="header-home">    
    /* Display Header Slider */
    get_template_part('content', 'slider'); 

Hi SoftWebMedia,

For me, it worked on the template-home.php file.

There’s a bug with the theme .zip package, this file is missing ..wp-content/themes/evision/images/backgrounds/topmenu-arrow.png

Where can I download the missing image?


Hi gatorherb,

topmenu-arrow.png is removed during theme development because we added black background for active page instead of arrow image in top menu dropdown menu.

Thank you for your feedback, we will remove background image line from style.css in next updated version :)

Creating custom CSS code isn’t getting reflected. I tried in the Theme Options and also in Appearance > Editor. Both don’t work.

Is there an option that’s supposed to be enabled first in order to insert custom CSS code? Thanks again.


Hi gatorherb,

Custom css code is added in screen.php file. ( ../wp-content/themes/evision/css/screen.php ) Somehow, by mistake custom css code is deleted in this file. Thank you for your feedback :), we are adding this code in next updated version. For now you can add below code in screen.php file at bottom.

if ($swm_custom_css != '') { 
    echo $swm_custom_css; 

Theme Updates

Version 1.04 – 9th June, 2012

Thanks for the support. One more thing that’s not working correctly is that changing the content paragraph text on the SWM Panel is not affecting lists. It would be great to have the option for Content Paragraph Text affect lists, or have a separate option for it. Also, a way to change font-family for the cufon fonts or even have google fonts available would be awesome.


Hi gatorherb,

Thank you for your feedback :)

We are adding this point in our next updated version list. You can also edit list style font size quickly from custom css option like below sample code.

#content ul li { font-size:14px; }
#content ol li { font-size:14px; }

My friend,

I would like to know if is it possible to insert more than 1 image inside portofolio ?



Hi lipepe,

In portfolio 1-4 column you can add only single image per portfolio item but for multiple images you can use “portfolio single page slider” shortcode like preview website : http://evision-wp.premiumthemes.in/?page_id=535

Thank you :)

Comment Resolved

Hey! Great theme, thanks.

For some reason the short codes generator doesn’t show up in my visual editor. Is this due to the version of Wordpress I’m using (can’t upgrade because of MySQL host version)? I am managing without it so far but it’s much more time-consuming to go through your demo files and find the short codes.

Any ideas?

Cheers, Sonja


Hello Sonja,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

This theme requires minimum Wordpress version 3.1. Please check shortcode icon in “Visual mode” of WYSIWYG editor. If this will not solve the issue then please send your website FTP and admin login details from our profile page form ( http://themeforest.net/user/Softwebmedia ) so we can test and give you the quick solution.

Just downloaded version 1.05. Running Wordpress 3.4. Installed theme, and installed demo-evision.xml. It seems to be working well, with one exception…even though “additional footer” is checked in the SWM Theme dashboard and 3 footer columns has been selected, and I’ve clicked save…when I update the site…the additional footer and the footer columns don’t appear.

Any thoughts and/or suggestions?

You can see what I’m talking about here…


Also…I can’t seem to get the short codes to be recognized in the text widget. It says that the text widget can accept HTML , but when I put the in HTML version of the short codes, they don’t show up.


Hello beshagpoor,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

We are working on shortcodes support for sidebar widgets, post comments box, text field like additional footer, 404 error page in theme option. It will take 1 to 2 days for next updated version which has all these features.

Please send your website admin login details from our profile page form so we can test and help to fix “additional footer” display issue.

For “footer” column widget display, you have to add some widgets from admin > appearance > widgets .


Thanks for replying. Sorry…forgot to mention that I did in fact add widgets to the footer which is why I’m confused as to why it’s not working, so your solution to that problem is something that I’ve already tried. I installed version evision 1.04 here:


As you can see in version 1.04 the footer widgets are working as well as the additional footer.

As for admin privileges…not sure I’m comfortable with that yet.

Hi guys, Hey great theme, I love it. I’m having this issue, I’m trying to insert the special offer box that you have at the bottom before the additional footer but I’m not sure if is what you call “promotion box” anyway, I’m getting this error:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/content/83/8494083/html/test/wp-content/themes/evision/framework/shortcodes/tinymce/shortcodes.class.php on line 65

I’m I doing it wrong? I would appreciate some help.



Hello cardenitas,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

We found there is one typo mistake in promotion box shortcode coding. We will upload next updated version soon. For now you can fix this bug by simple change in typo in ../wp-content/themes/evision/framework/shortcodes/tinymce/config.php line #665

You will find this code $swm_shortcodes['promotiontext']

Change above code to this code $swm_shortcodes['promotionbox']

OR you can use promotion box shortcode directly by below shortcode

[promotion_box button_text="SIGNUP NOW" button_link="#" ] 
Subscribe for 12 months and get an extra 2 months free! 

Version 1.06 fixed the sort of fixed the problems I was having with the short codes in the text widget. It seems to accept some short codes but not others.

Also, what happened to all the List Style short codes that were in version 1.04 and 1.05? Version 1.06 doesn’t have the same set of list styles.


Hello beshagpoor,

Thank you for your feedback. We fixed the list style issue and re-uploaded version 1.06. In a day it will be live on themeforest after review process.

There are limitation of width and default wordpress styles in content sidebar and footer widgets so we tried our best to make shortcodes compatible in both areas.


I’ll check back next week for the new version.

Hi, I have just purchased this theme. Is it possible to add more fields to the contact form (i.e. Telephone No. etc). Thanks Phil


Thank you Phil for purchasing the theme :)

You can add more fields by adding php code in content-contactus.php file. Please send us email from our profile page form so we can send you “phone” field ready php file so you can use it without any manual coding.

Hello, How do I get the exact same settings in this demo? http://themeforest.net/item/evision-blog-and-portfolio-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/2383081

Why do not you want the setting to the blog homepage.



Hello ytsejam,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can make same demo by following help file index #1. Theme Installation and Import Demo content and index #7. Create Home page with Slider > Part 2

You have to import demo content from xml file and then set front page setting as home page from admin > settings > reading > front page display > select “Home” from static page > front page dropdown.

Hi there, Is there a way to change the amount of time for each slide in the rotating testimonials widget?


Hi Boulderedgetv,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

You can change testimonials slide rotation speed from

../wp-content/themes/evision/js/theme-settings.js > Index #06 Sidebar Testimonial Rotator

In this section go to—> play: 5000, and change time as per your requirement.

5000 = 5 seconds pause time
10000 = 10 seconds pause time

Hey, we’ve purchased the Evision theme and currently working on it’s translation and we need to know what the he_IL translation file should call and located on the theme.




Hi Doron,

Thank you for purchasing the theme :)

Please give Country and Language name so we can give you detail information for translation.

Israel Hebrew he_IL




Translating the Theme

Hi Doron,

Language file .po is added in language folder (path – ../wp-content/themes/evision/language/evision.po )

Copy evision.po file in to desktop and rename to he_IL.po

Now edit this file with PoEdit software

( You can refer this tutoril’s step 3 to edit .mo file)

When saving he_IL.po file, it will automatically create a he_IL.mo file.

Upload he_IL.po and he_IL.mo files to language folder so they are in the same directory as the evision.po and evision.mo

Open wp-config.php file in a text editor and find below code

define('WPLANG', '');

change above code to

define('WPLANG', 'he_IL');

Thank you :)

hi softwebmedia, i´m very interested in your theme.

is it possible to change the fonts (cufon fonts or googlefonts)? in the fonts settings i miss this option.

is it possible to insert a shop plugin?

thanks for reply ;-)


Hi Uli2010,

In fonts section, you can change font color, size etc. but google font or other cufon fonts are not included with the theme.

This theme is made with all wordpress standards so it will work with maximum plugins. If you will use shop plugin then you have to apply additional frontend styles for cart pages and also extra php coding to set shopping cart pages for theme like bread crumbs etc. ( we don’t suggest you to use this theme for shopping cart website )

This theme is suitable for blog and portfolio website. It is better to purchase shopping cart theme which has ready “frontend” styles and code for all cart pages.

Thank you :)


hi softwebmedia, thanks for fast reply.

i like the theme very much, but my customer don´t like the font :-( maybe we buy this theme next time.

further much success.
