hi Zerge, opposite from wellytengara i’d like to display the ’/read article/’ link in my blog list i’ve set it up to display excerpt, but the ’/read article/’ text/link is not showing up in the list it’s only shown in the slider.

is there any setting that i’ve missed?

update: it’s now shown after change ($display_content == ‘Content’) to ($display_content != ‘Content’) in loop-metastandard.php

ZERGE

Ok :)

You may to change this via Theme Options -> Blog Options -> Use Excerpt/Content/Titles?

Default-user

i did that and choose Excerpt, but as ‘read articles’ didnt show up. i think because of that $display_content value needed to be ‘Content’ instead of != Content (or it should be == ‘Excerpt’ let say)

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

No, you need to choose “Content” and it should works and also it depends on post format. But in any case as I understand you already resolved this issue.

Great theme! Is there a way to modify the 404 page? I’d like to put some custom text, links, and images in there.

Hi PaulMest,

Yes, this can be changed easily.

Default-user

Great. Can you give me some pointers on what I should do to accomplish this? I don’t see a 404.php under Appearance -> editor.

ZERGE

You already purchased this theme? From this account?

Default-user

No, another person on my team purchased it. Though, I’m the one that needs to do the final tweaking.

I’d like to conserve as much vertical space as possible. Is there anyway to remove the title band (inner-title-block) entirely? I’d like to move the title from the top of the page to the top of body content near the date in row-fluid.

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Yes, this also can be changed.

Default-user

Great. How do you recommend that I do this? Do I need to modify the templates under Appearance -> editor? If so, which files should I start with? Thanks!

Hey Zerge,

Firstly, nice theme I really like it! I’ve made a few modifications here and there but the most significant one for me is to remove all comments and just have Facebook comments enabled. The power of this is amazing! My only concern is that I’m not yet seeing comments in: https://developers.facebook.com/tools/comments

Did you have any tips for this?

Thanks again

Hi Zerge,

Thank you for your fine effort in making this theme. I am quite pleased with my purchase. I would, however, wish to ask if there might be a convenient way for me to be able to have it so that the audio post type accepts sound files hosted on the blog server itself, rather than on SoundCloud only. I would like to have an audio blog, but do not wish to create an account with SoundCloud and have my files publicly available there for the sole purpose of being able to integrate them with this theme. Thank you very much for your assistance!

Hi,

Try to use third-party plugins for self-hosted audio.

Hey,

I’ve purchased you wp-theme, awesome job there. I just have 2 questions, one of them is how I can insert code blocks into posts? (I use visual composer on posts as well, but there is no box for code snippets. And the other one is, could you tell me the width of the post page cause I want to create images to my posts but I don’t know how wide it can be. Thanks. Rated 5 stars. ;)

Hi,

1. Do you mean HTML element “code”?

Hi,

1. No, I mean, programming code, like Objective C. I’m planning to create tutorials and post snippets of codes, and I want to have something like a wrapper to distinguish the code part from the real text.

2. Thanks. :)

Hi Zerge,

Thanks for the theme, looks great. I have managed to change the logo size but its not in line vertically with the menu.

Website is www.feathersnquill.com can you please help?

Thanks,

Hi,

First and foremost, thanks for purchasing one of our themes, we truly appreciate it! :)

Try to align the menu with css code, just add to the style.css:
.top-block .span6, .top-block .span2 { margin-top: 30px; }

Hi Zerge, thanks for this great theme. However, I need some little help… Sorry but I couldn’t find this in docs… How can I put a “slider” (this which is showed on main page) instead of Nivo or Flex slider on “page”? And, the second one is how to show only excerpt with feature image (I don’t need this one big picture), is this possible? Thanks again

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Hi,

1. I’m not sure I understand your question, could you please clarify?

2. You can change it via Theme Options.

Hi, let me explain again. I found in theme three types of slider: one available from Theme Options > Slider > Category Slider and next two from Visual Composer > Posts slider (Nivo and Flex). I want to put this first one on a single page using shortcodes instead of build-in post slider from VC. Is this thing possible? Or, have I clone a page template and manually modify a page layout? Thanks

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

No such settings in this theme (Theme Options > Slider > Category Slider), may be you mean Theme Options -> Slider Settings ?

To Add this Slider to the single post page you need to modify the file single.php

Zerge, this is the 2nd theme of yours I’ve picked up. So far looking good! Can you direct me to where I can change the color of the tags/text that show up on left/single post view? Right now they are yellow and I’m wanting to go with more of a blue. Still much more to learn, but for now thanks!

I opened on IE 7 and it’s all wrong. It will be corrected this situation?

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Hi joaobexiga,

Unfortunately IE7 is too old browser and Explosion theme not optimized for it.

How can I translate it? How can I change the color, I tried black but still showing the yellow

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

Hi,

1. For example, use Codestyling Localization plugin – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/codestyling-localization/

2. You can change the color via theme options. Also, be sure your theme files are writable (especially \css\options.css)

Default-user

All files are writable. This never happenned to me

ZERGE
ZERGE Author

And \css\options.css? Please check it.

It would be better if you give me access to WP admin panel and FTP access, to see what the problem is. Send me a message through my profile

Hi,

Is there an option to update the Visual Composer plugin somehow? Which version of it is implemented?

ZERGE

Hi,

I can send to you the latest version of Visual Composer and you can replace it.

That would be awesome, cause right now I’m having some problems with it, and hopefully an update would solve it. :) Also, how can I replace it? It’s inside the wp folder, not in the admin panel of wp, right?

Hello there i just bought explosion theme a few days ago. I need help to customize it in wordpress such as setting the tabs on the main page, to be able to post videos and articles. All that this theme is ment to do.

ZERGE

Hi,

I’m not sure I understand your question, could you please clarify?

Default-user

Okay. I want the tabs such as about, contact, to appear in the main home page of the theme. I also want to add tabs so that the user can click on it and go to different categories and read the article of that classified category. I also tried to Change the color of theme but nothing happens..

ZERGE

It’s not a tabs, it’s Main menu :) You can create and activate it via menu Appearance -> Menus. Maybe this helps you – http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen

Be sure your theme files are writable (especially /css/options.css)

Default-user

Okay thank you..now I have my menus set up :) but now I have a new trouble. When the user clicks one of the menus such as “thoughts” (one of my menus) I want to day post category: thoughts…... Each post that I publish to be in its category….

ZERGE

Just read the link above. Or google it for “wordpress how to add category to menu”.

Default-user

hello there i’m having trouble on deleting a default category named “About Me” I go to writer setting but doesn’t give me the option to leave it in blank…..can you help me???

ZERGE

What do you mean by “deleting a default category”? Please clarify.

Default-user

the ‘About me” category, it seems that I’ve set up as a default category….I can’t get rid of it…what should I do? note: “About me” category didn’t come with WP, I created it…...but I want to delete it and put it back to WP default settings

ZERGE

You can remove any category via menu Posts -> Categories

Default-user

I did that but it won’t remove it…..it doesn’t give me the option to delete it…nor in the writing settings it won’t let me change the default category….

ZERGE

Try deactivating all plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

Default-user

okay I’ve deactivated all the plugins and is still there, settings in writing still doesn’t give me the option to change it back,,

ZERGE

Probably something wrong with your settigns. I need access to WP admin panel, to see what the problem is. Send me a message through my profile

Default-user

how do i send you the WP admi panel, by a link? also “about me” that was assigned as Default, i edited to “uncategorized” so went i click “view category” i got an error 404 message. But before editing it, it said “post by category: About Me”

ZERGE

Send me username\password and link to your site.

Default-user

okay…...are you willing to set up an about and contact page and out into the menus for me?

ZERGE

I can setup only Contact page, because this page template included into the theme.

But you can setup this page yourself, there is nothing complicated :)

Default-user
http://christologic.com/ okay here…do you want the username and password???
ZERGE

Yes. Send me a message through my profile

hello there I want to know what is meta data? what is it for? and how do I use flicker and twitter widget….do I need to create a flicker account?

ZERGE

Hi,

1. What the “meta data” do you mean?

2. Yes, you need to create flickr and twitter accounts if you want to use these widgets.

Default-user

hello I am currently changing the color of the theme. I click save changes and it says its saved. I click view blog and nothing happens….....what is wrong?

Default-user

also I mean “meta data description” what is it?

ZERGE

1. Be sure your theme files are writable (especially /css/options.css)

2. http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2067564/How-To-Use-HTML-Meta-Tags

where can I find these css/optiond.css??

hello there look i just added a new menu “Home” but when i click the home menu, it says on the top of the page “post by: uncategorized” i want to get rid of that. Also when i click the “experiences” menu, the same thing appears inspite that i’ve posted a post already under that category…

what should i do?

ZERGE

Hi,

Try add to the style.css:

.category .inner-title-block {
display: none;
}
Default-user

where in the editor section? should erase the cuurent code and put this one in?

ZERGE

No. Just add this code to the end of file.

Default-user

i am at the editor section but i don’t where to put it

Default-user

thnaks i did it so now what, go to my website and test it out?

Default-user

okay i checked it out and nothing happens!!

ZERGE

You should save your changes in the file style.css

ZERGE

Show me your site.

Default-user

is still the same. Look, all i want is that when the user clicks “experience” menu, they would see the article posted in that category on that menu. When they click “thoughts” menu, i want the user to see the post under that category under its menu…

ZERGE

It seems you doing something wrong. I need access to WP admin panel. Send me a message through my profile

okay i did it
