Hi,

Great Theme – Very easy to work with and I had the first draft of The Sunday Times Festival of Education site up and running within 2 days. Thanks

http://festivalofeducation2013.org.uk.

However i have a few questions.

i have the same issue as Frallan – The slider text in mobile responsive version disappears.

I also noticed the typography is different or Bold in Safari and Chrome when using IOS and Macbook pro compared with IE on a PC.

Apart from the being different is these browsers, is there a way I can change the typography in the slider ONLY?

Is there a way of moving the social icons to the top of the page? (With Facebook sponsoring our Festival I also need to use the genuine Facebook logo instead of the stylised image provided).

Thanks so much,

Stvnalln

PS – Please feel free to add our site to the list of example sites or happy customers using your theme.

Hi Stvnalln,

thank you for feedback!

as for the slider text: I do see text in mobile version on your website: http://grab.by/kfCC Could you send us a screenshot with a problem? Though I noticed another issue – on the smalles mobile size the slider controls overlaps the text: http://grab.by/kfCG Please, remove one slide from the set and it will be ok.

as for the typography – just checked with iPad – it looks quite similar. iOS renders text a bit bolder – it’s the feature of iOS.

as for the text on slider: you can do it this way: add the code into “Code block before </head>” field under “Theme Options – Extra code blocks”
<style>
.slider .text {
  font-family: 'XXX';
  font-size: XXpx;
}
</style>

as for the social icons: unfortuantely there is no option to move them to the top. The facebook icon can be modified here: wp-content/themes/expo18/img/icon-facebook.png

Thanks for getting back to me.

It was your 2nd screenshot is the issue I was actually trying to explain, so that’s great you are able to see the problem. – As per your instruct i deleted one slide. This made no difference. I have now deleted a 2nd slide and this too has not made any difference.

Thanks for sending the custom css code for the slider text – This has worked a treat.

No problem re the location of the social icons

Also – the subscribe function (receive latest agenda changes) not sure how this works. Could you please advice.

mopc76

stvnalln,

now, with couple of deleted slides it see this: http://grab.by/khJM – it seems ok, doesn’t it?

As for the form: you need to set up form under “Theme Options – Registration form” and insert it at any page via shortcode [registration_form] . You will receive emails when anybody fills the form.

Thanks again – To answer your question; “It seems ok, doesn’t it?” No.

The copy in larger screen sizes reads “The Sunday Times Festival of Education” what you can see in the screen shot is “The Sunday Times Fest Education” i.e “ival of” are missing in “The Sunday Times Festival of Education”.

Any suggestions?

Ps. BTW Still love the theme.

Hi,

sorry, didn’t notice this issue. There is a small bug with the width of text area. To fix it, please, add the code into “Code block before </head>” field (also I’ve added font-size attribute to make the text a bit smaller to fit it):
<style>
@media only screen and (max-width: 479px) {
  .slider-slides li .text {
    width:236px;
    font-size:16px;
  }
}
</style>

Hi

my client has multiple events running through the year. Can your template allow for that? We need to be able to see past events.

Is it possible to remove the background altogether? We need something with a more corporate feel.

Thanks.

mopc76

Hi,

basically this theme is better for single event. There are no special layouts or shortocodes for multiple events, but you can organize pages structures so that they show information about pas events.

As for the background – it can be replaced altogether by adding few lines of custom CSS via theme options.

Yeah I still have the same problem, with the text, it disappears under “the slide”, and is removed from the mobile function. A small error :)

Another one, I’m trying to to blogposts, but the blogposts doesnt do the “draft” version, it shows the whole blogpost on “blog”.

Which is quite annoying. And yes I´m using “summary”. and tried it the manual way as well..

Best regards

mopc76

Hi,

Try to do this, add the code into “Code block before </head>” field under “Theme Options – Extra code blocks”:
<style>
@media only screen and (max-width: 479px) {
  .slider-slides li .text {
    width:236px;
  }
}
</style>

To separate an excerpt from the full post text, please, use the “Insert More Tag” button at the editor toolbar. Also you can set custom excerpt: click “Screen options” at the top, check “Excerpt” and specify custom excerpt at the box appeared at the bottom.

If it doesn’t help you, please, provide us a link to your website and temporary access to WP-admin.

I’m currently running version 1.0.3… is this the current version for WP 3.5.1 .. if it isn’t how can I upgrade??

mopc76

Hi,

the latest version is 1.0.4. To update you need to download new theme package from ThemeForest, then upload and replace all new theme files into wp-content/themes/expo18 folder via FTP.

Hi how can i change the mask color in the slider, right now is white i need it to be yellowish. tried to change the slider-mask.png image but didnt change…what else to do? Thanks!

mopc76

Hi,

it’s correct, you need to change the file wp-content/themes/expo18/img/slider-mask.png If it doesn’t help you, it could be just a cache in your browser. Try to click Ctrl+F5

Is there a way to make the site not resize for mobile? When you view pages that have tables it doesn’t resize correctly and it stretches photos.

Thanks

mopc76

Hi,

yes, you can uncheck an option “Activate responsive mode” under “Theme Options – General Settings”.

Hi, I’d like to know if there’s a way to add links to the Room part of the Event shortcode. For example:

You’d be able to add a link to Room A-18. I’ve tried plain html but then the text vanishes.

This would be very useful as my site will include venue information and Google map links, and it would be useful for users to be able to check the venue location for each event.

Great theme. Many thanks.

mopc76

Hi,

just checked plain html method – it works fine for me. Try this: switch editor to the “Text” mode and use shortcode this way:
[event time="10:30 — 11:00" room="<a href=http://google.com>Room name</a>"]description[/event]
the key point – is not to use quotes in the href attribute of the link.

hello. it’s a nice theme. but i have a question about registration. it offers just 1 registration style. i want to 2 style registration form. 1 is for a private member, the other is for a corporation member. can i use it that i want?

mopc76

Hello,

unfortunately the theme offsers only one registration form. If you need more forms or something more customizable you can try to use any plugin, for example “Contact form 7”

I noticed the post above about removed the HR from beneath headers. I’d like to do this only for h3 thru h6. How would the code look differently? Thanks.

I don’t see label “Purchased” on your posts.

Please, use our support forums http://support.olevmedia.com with further questions, thank you.

Hi,

I was logged in as Maastricht University above, forgetting to use my own Envato account. You should see by my name now a “purchase” label. Sorry for the confusion.

I’m having an issue when I use the Tabs widget. When clicking the tabs the page shakes strangely during transitions, or it scrolls up or down. It’s caused by a plugin called jQuery Smooth Scroll, which works with anchors tags to create a smooth scrolling effect. I want to continue using the plugin, but not sure if there’s a way to eliminate the conflict.

Many thanks, Atticus

mopc76

Hi Atticus,

could you please provide us a link to your website, because I don’t see such a problem on our demo website with jQuery Smooth Scroll plugin, we will take a look and try to help you.

Default-user

Sure. I’m not even sure if it is theme related at all, but just in case…

It’s specifically when switching between the tabs on this page. I’m using JS Composer to create the tabs. The window “shakes” when switching, but sometimes it also scrolls up or down:

http://conference.euprio.eu/tracy-playle/#tab-1362530812-1-29

FYI, I’m also using anchors in the main menu items at the top.

Any insight you might have is greatly appreciated.

mopc76

Atticus,

the tabs on the page http://conference.euprio.eu/tracy-playle/ are not native theme tabs, so we cannot be responsible for it. It seems there is some conflict between plugins. With a quick glance unfortunately I haven’t found a problem.

For buttons with tooltips – How can you increase the width of the tooltip box? I’m trying to put long descriptions in the tooltips so the boxes end up being really tall instead of wide.

Thanks

Edit: Of course I found it right after I posted.

.tooltip { width: 300px;}

Thanks!

Hi, I purchased this theme and it’s great! I’m currently working on customization, and I have problem to remove sidebar from page which shows news/posts. I created new page, from the “Pages Atribute” menu on the right side I selected “Full-width Page” template, I still have sidebar appearing with the posts. How to overcome this?

Thanks, Ivan

mopc76

Hi Ivan,

please, write us via contact form ( http://themeforest.net/user/mopc76 ) and we will send you new file which will fix it. Also this fix will be available with next theme update.

Another Button question – Is there a way to have a button, with a tooltip, not do anything when clicked on? Currently, when you click on a button with no link it reloads the page but if you’re near the bottom of a long list, this could be annoying to someone who clicks on the button. Basically, make the button a mouseover and not clickable?

thanks, great theme!

Hi, Is there a way I can move the social icons to appear right underneath the countdown box at the top right?

thanks!

mopc76

Hi,

there is no such an option, but if you are familiar with HTML you can try to move them. The code of social icons you can find in the file footer.php lines 31-75, and move them into file header.php, it seems somewhere after the line 49 <!-- /Countdown -->

OK I have purchased this beautiful theme and asked two things in the forum, but maybe I’ll have more luck here: 1. How can I change the heighth of the speaker box (specially in case without photo usage); 2. I don’t know why I cannot make the map behaving “responsivelly”... Do I miss anything?

Thanks in advance

mopc76

Hi,

sorry for delay with answer, we were out of the office on 8-10 March.

1. add the code into “code block before </head>” field under “Theme Options – Extra code blcoks”
<style>
ul.speakers li .pic {
  min-height: 0;
}
</style>
and it will make the box smaller. 2. when you insert iframe with map, like
<iframe src="https://maps.google.com/..." frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" width="100%" height="350"></iframe>
please, make sure that the attribute width is set to 100%
