This is a pre-purchase question. Is this an easy enough website to deal with if you’re not very good at code? I’ve used the free wordpress templates before, but just need something better for my design portfolio. I really love this theme, but don’t want to buy something that I won’t be able to figure out. I guess I’m just wondering if I’ll have to do a lot of extra coding.

thanks, Kayla

Kayla, Thanks for your interest. To answer your query – yes, it does require basic knowledge of HTML and WordPress, although you do not need to be an advanced user. We have custom post types and lots of shortcodes which makes things quite easy but I guess there are elements in the site which will require you to have a closer look. Hope this helps.

Thanks so much for a fast response! wow! I think I’m going to buy it, besides it would probably be good for a little challenge. And I can get support if I need it! Thanks!

LiveMesh

Sure you can get in touch with us on our forum if you have trouble. Thank you!

Before i purchase this theme, i want to know if its is possible to show the latest (or specific) product from the WooCommerce at the homepage?

Can it be done via a widget?

LiveMesh

Thanks for your interest. What you need can be achieved with the help the woocommerce shortcodes documented here -

http://docs.woothemes.com/document/woocommerce-shortcodes/

You should be able to insert these shortcodes into any page. Hope this helps.

Help!! Hi how do I change the default height of the nivo slider from 600px to another size? I know you can enter the specific height under the theme options but that messes up the way it shows up on mobile unless it is left blank to default to the 600px….so im wondering where in the CSS can i change that default 600 number to another???

LiveMesh

Pls enter the desired height in the theme options as done by you earlier but have this Custom CSS to handle mobile issue -

#nivo-slider {
height: auto;
}

Will have this fixed in the coming release. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Thanks!

Hello there, As a ten year developer I am very happy with this theme! It is elegant and very well written. That being said I have a few questions: 1) How can I change the style to highlight a primary menu item when on that page? ex. If I click on the “About” page, I would like “About” to be highlighted on the navigation bar?

2) How can I add Facebook/Social networking icons and contact information into the header?

3) Responsive Carousel Short code? I have injected this and was prompted to replace the content. I tried to implement a few images but nothing shows up.

Thanks in advance!

LiveMesh

Glad you like the theme. Regarding your queries -

1) You can make the menu highlight for the current page this way (pls change the color to your requirement) -

#primary-menu > ul.menu > li.current_page_item {
color: red;
border-bottom: 2px solid red;
}

2) The header area is at present not widgetized. You can add items to the header by modifying the header.php file in the theme folder around line number 60 to include the social shortcode provided by the theme (pls see latest version 2.8 documentation). And you can insert custom HTML for the contact information here. You will need to position them with the help of custom CSS.

3) Can you pls email me at livemesh.themes@gmail.com a temp login to the site and I will try to see what’s happening with the carousel.

Thanks

Hello! Love this theme, but having a bit of a problem with the segment shortcode on mobile. I applied the segment shortcode and am using the background_pattern parameter linking to my own pattern tile. It looks great on the desktop and is scaling properly, but on mobile the pattern is enlarged and pixelated. Do I need to apply a certain style to get this to scale properly on mobile?

I appreciate any help you may be able to provide :)

LiveMesh

If you provide the URL of the page, I can take a look. It is probably some simple CSS which is making this happen (usually we do width: 100% on the images in mobile which can cause this). Pls send me email at livemesh.themes@gmail.com with the link and I can fix this. Thanks!

i bought the theme this week, very nice, i have one thing i need to solve,

1) in the portfolio pages like this one http://incredivid.com/portfolio/userzoom/ i dont want to show the featured image at the top, the featured image is great for the home page as the thumb yes, but i want to hide it inside the portfolio page, how can i do that in the code? so inside i just want to show the video, not the featured image also

2) where can i change the fonts for other google fonts?

thanks very much jav

LiveMesh

You can change the fonts in the Fonts tab of theme options.

Looks like you already disabled the image- probably by editing the respective file. If you still need help on the same, pls let me know. Thanks! You just need to edit the single-portfolio.php file and remove the mo_thumbnail() function call there.

Hey LiveMesh,

Could you advise what font is being used for “Extinct” logo in the demo?

Cheers!

LiveMesh

I used “Goudy Old Style” as the base, converted it into a path and modified accordingly. Hope that helps. Thanks!

I’m working on a project using Extinct and have been waiting just shy of 2 days for a response from support via the support forums.

For reference, can you advise what the average wait time to get support questions answered is?

Cheers!

LiveMesh

We usually answer queries within 24 hours. Some of the customization queries or tougher ones can take time. Have answered your query in the forum. Pls check.

CreativeCollaborations

Good to know. Thanks for the reply both here and on the support forums.

I checked the response and it resolved my support question. Thanks for the assistance. :)

Cheers!

Is it possible to add sidebar on shop pages ??

LiveMesh

Thanks for your interest. Yes, it is possible to add a sidebar with a minor code change.

hello! thjis is a pre-sale question :)

it´s possible to put the latest blog posts in home? (like latests portfolio itens) ?

LiveMesh

Yes sure. You can use the same shortcode by changing the post type from portfolio to post. Thanks for your interest.

Hello, For some reason I cannot load the paginated portfolio items.

I have the latest version of the theme. wordpress version 3.9.2

So - I can load the portfolio home page. domain.com/portfolio/ - I can load portfolio item domain.com/portfolio/myitem - I Cannot load domain.com/portfolio/page/2

LiveMesh

Can you visit once the Settings->Permalinks and hit save and see if that resolves the issue? Also, if you have created a portfolio page, try to avoid slug portfolio and see if changing the same to something like domain.com/our-portfolio/ resolves the issue.

Hi,

I am having problems logging in to your support forum. When I try to retrieve my password, it doesn’t work.

So here are my questions: – how can I disable the revolution slider on smaller devices (since the responsive option doesn’t seem to work for me even when I use the settings mentioned in your documentation files)? – how can I embed my own Google Maps coordinates in the contact page?

Regards.

LiveMesh

You can use the following Custom CSS to control the visibility of revolution slider in smaller resolution -

@media only screen and (max-width: 979px) {
.rev_slider { display: none; }
}

I still recommend you try out a few things to make it responsive. We have had success with making the rev slider responsive so far.

Google Maps API has changed and pls follow the post below for help -
