Sjors,

I am trying to customize the theme in a couple of ways and I could use a little remedial help in how to isolate certain CSS settings in Fade theme.

1) on the main navigation >> i want to change the color of the Active Page text in the menu item .. this is the CSS Rule I can see using developer’s tools in Chrome. .navbar .nav > .active > a {

I can change it using the Google Chrome developer tools if I add !important. For example, .navbar .nav > .active > a { background-color: #eeeeee!important; color: black !important; }

But, when I attempt to add it to the styles.css. It has no effect. I have also tried adding to app.css and that does not seem to work either.

My question is, how can I override all theme CSS to customize it? There is some CSS being output to the page when it is generated but I can’t seem to figure out how to modify it.

2) The other question I have is how can I isolate the HOME page only to change the background-color? I want the Home page to be dark and have all interior pages light. I am able to affect interior pages by the post #. But, this doesn’t seem to work for me on the Home page.

Thanks Ben

UPDDATE >>

I have been able to adjust the active page navigation li by adding

.navbar .nav > .active > a { color: #222222 !important; }

to the app.css as a separate item.

I am still working on a way to change the body background color on the Home page.

Thanks

bendelaney

UPDATE #2 >>

I have successfully styled the Home page background only by editing app.css with the following:

.home .main-content { background-color: #222222 !important; }

Making progress!

Thanks Ben

Good to hear ben. Sounds like you are getting around quite well with CSS ;) Although there should be a admin panel setting to change the active menu item.

bendelaney

Hi Sjors, There is an Admin panel setting for the Active Menu background, but there is not a setting to change the Active Menu text color. If you are setting the background colors where they contrast a lot, you need to be able to change the text separately for the menu and active menu items … hint, hint, hint Might make a nice addition to your admin panel … :-)

Good call. I will put it on the roadmap for the next update. Cheers

Hi, I’m using Wordpress 3.6, and having an issue with Visual Composer for Portfolio. The button simply does not show up at all in Portfolio editor (It shows perfectly fine in Pages & Posts).

What should I do?

onesixty

Hi Preschem, what are you trying to achieve? If you would like to create a portfolio page, you should create a page and then choose the “portfolio” template on the right (templates). The visual composer is there to put in portfolio teasers (or blog post teasers). Hope it helps you. Good luck, OneSixty Themes

Default-user

Thanks, apparently I didn’t turn on the Visual Composer for Portfolio single page. All good now.

Hi there, I already purchased and started to build my site. It’s amazingly easy and helpful to use this theme!

Just something came up: I made page with visual composer and already published it, when I tried to edit the page, the visual composer feature didn’t appear again on my editing page, the working area itself was filled with all codes.

Also, can I have the shortcode for styled tabs? I saw the one in bootstrap doesn’t display the complete code, I am making table for schedule and need to display table withat least 5 columns and 10 row.

Look forward to hear the reply.

onesixty
Hi Alkha, you should be able to see the visual composer button above your text editor in order to see the content in visual composer style. Are you sure the plugin is installed and active? In visual composer you should be able to add 5 columns or a raw html element where you can add a bootstrap table for your schedule. http://getbootstrap.com/2.3.2/base-css.html#tables Just add a table as normal and use a table class to style it. See the example in the link. Let me know if you need any help with that

Yes, it’s installed and active. It doesn’t happen in all pages, just in one page. The other pages still display the visual composer above the text editor, just one page is missing that, which cause me a bit of issue when I want to edit something in that page.

Can you write down the guidelines about how to create the table? I tried to insert the bootstrap table according to that url, but seemed I’ve done it wrong, since nothing came up. I haven’t really understood well about embedding the bootstrap code.

onesixty

The page thing without the Visual Composer is really weird. Especially since it still works on the other pages. Can you create a new page and copy the content of that page into that one and use the Visual Composer then? Then you could set that page in the menu and use it.

Default-user
Alkha Purchased

Done, the table code successfully works! Big thanks! The visual composer was something weird, this time when I opened the page and ready to copy-paste it into new page, the visual composer button appeared again, weird, but it’s ok anyway. Great support, worth to 5 star rated!

Simple question: how to make the blog page looks like yours with sidebar, as it appears in http://themeforest.net/item/fade-responsive-parallax-bootstrap-theme/full_screen_preview/5379808

I set the page with “page with right sidebar” but nothing happened. Does it involve visual composer works?

onesixty

Hi alkha, the blog is standard with sidebar (setting in theme options panel). You can turn it on or off there.

Just create a page. Call it blog / weblog / news (what ever you like). Go to wordpress dashboard > settings > reading > static page > post page > select your blog page.

Pre Sale question. Hi , Very nice theme and i am very interested in purchasing it. Only one thing though I am looking for an Html template and don’t use wordpress. The description says its based on bootstrap so does it mean it comes with html template as well or i am only buying a wordpress theme which i don’t know how to use. Regards

onesixty

Hi Khalidaslam. Unfortunately it does not come with a html template. However, wordpress is super easy to use. In fact much easier than using the raw html version. There are video’s available with this theme on how to install it on wordpress and how to use it. You will be surprised how easy it is. And if you need any help, we are there to help.

Hi there,

few question before I finally purchase this,

On main page for portfolio is it possible to show more items? and may be some description or other fields under the image?

Can i add more custom fields in portfolio, and display on the portfolio item page?

Can I have several different portfolios?

How many items can i load on portfolio page (4 columns) and does it have ajax load more?

Thanks

onesixty

Hi Masterok, On the main portfolio page you can show as many items as you like. The amount per page is configurable in the admin panel. You can also show title and description under the image.

The current custom fields on portfolio are: title, description, website url and categories. You can always use the standard custom fields from wordpress to add more.

The site currently supports only 1 portfolio. But you could create a page and just show a portfolio from 1 particular category. In that way you could have more than one.

If you have any further questions, please let me know! Cheers!

Hi there :) This theme works perfectly as I expected but fwslider’s image does’t show up only in ie(8.0 and 7.0 in compatibility mode)

In other browsers images show up well.

Slider’s texts and buttons work well in ie but not the images. Are there some settings or codes needed for ie?

The theme template page’s slider images are show up in ie.

onesixty

Hi Janface105, thanks for purchasing. We have tested the theme in IE8 and it works fine. The template does not support ie7 unfortunately. But almost no one uses ie7 anymore: http://theie7countdown.com/ What kind of image format do you use on ie8? Can you maybe share a link so we can have a look?

Default-user

It’s jpg file and has same dimensions with the demo template’s slider image, 1600×900 px. My site is http://denomix.com . First I thought the korean language itself may affect on script so the image’s filename and slider’s article name are set in english but still in ie(not tested in version9, just ie8) doesn’t show up but only the loading animation. Any ideas?

onesixty

I think the problem is caused by the fact that you have only one slide. The FWSlider uses “display: none” on the first slide and then fades into the other with css3 animations. I think ie8 does not get triggered to do so and therefor stays on display none. Can you add a second slide and see if that solves the problem? thanks!

Default-user

I’ve added other sliders but still no images ;{ maybe some js modifications needed?

onesixty

I see it works in ie9 … but still not in ie8. When I check our demo site, it does work in ie8. This is tooo weird :P I’ve set our developer to work to figure this mystery out! We will get back to you asap. Best, Sjors / OS Themes

Default-user

Yeah :) Thanks a lot. btw it’s great theme to use!

onesixty

Janface105, could you please try to add this to the header (templates > head.php)

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EDGE” />

JSON Support Library IE 8 http://bestiejs.github.io/json3/

Hope this helps.

Default-user

I’ve inserted it into head.php next to </title> but it seems still not working ;(

onesixty

I will dedicate my day to this! Going to update the slider today and will run some tests in ie8 for you. Hopefully some results by the end of today! -S

onesixty

Hi Janface105, we managed to solve it! Will post an update of the theme later today! Stay tuned!

Default-user

WOW I really appreciate your enthusiastic supports! I’m going to update the theme soon and let you know :) Thanks!

i just installed this theme on a fresh site … i get a little pop-up inside of wordpress that i need to make the htaccess file writeable …. isnt that a huge no no since hacker bots are constantly trolling wordpress sites for just that?

onesixty

Via your FTP client you should be able to make that file writable. This because the roots theme framework writes a htaccess file dynamically. The writing permissions are only server side so don’t worry.

Default-user
roaryw Purchased

i actually dont see the htaccess file in that directory—everything seems to work fine so far (is it in another sub-directory and im missing it?)

onesixty

Might be the one in your root folder

There is a new version of WPBakery Visual Composer—will updates to this plugin be available through the licensing of your theme (and will your template work with the latest version).

It’s always good to update plugins because of flaws or vulnerability issues right?

onesixty

Hi roaryw, thanks for purchasing our theme. It is indeed good to update the plugins. We did however customise the Visual Composer plugin to work better with the theme. We will update the template with the new plugin next week. So stay tuned!

How do I achieve the footer items as shown as in the demo? I bought the template. Good stuff!

onesixty

Hi lordweb, thanks for purchasing our theme. To create the footer items, goto : appearance > widgets > footer,1,2,3,4 on the right. Drag the desired widgets in there. We have 2 custom widgets (contact and recent posts) to recreate the footer we have in the demo. Good luck!

Hi again, now it says within WordPress, there is an Update on CodeCanyon for the Visual Composer. I cannot update as I haven’t bought it, I only use it as it was delivered with your theme. What can I do to update the Visual Composer? Do i have to buy a license? Thanks.

onesixty

Hi Lordweb, we have an extended license for this plugin. We will update the template next week and include the new visual composer. (we added some special fade theme customisations to it).

Hi – quick question, do you have plans to upgrade this theme to be based on Bootstrap 3.0? If so, is there a timeline for that?

Thanks, Brenton

onesixty

Hey Brenton, we have considered it, but since quite a few class names changed in bootstrap 3 and the overall look and feel + functionalities of the Fade theme won’t change much with bootstrap 3, we decided not to upgrade. Most likely our next theme will use bootstrap 3.

Hi there, enjoying the theme so far.

I have two questions: 1. How can i change the permalink of portfolio. if i want to call it something else rather then mysite.com/portfolio

2. When i update the theme, will all the settings and all other stuff stay intact?

onesixty

Hi Masterok, To change the permalink of your portfolio page, just rename your page (but keep the portfolio template) and update the permalink (underneath the title field)

When you update the theme it should all stay in tact. Since it wont touch the database, just the theme files. To be sure, its always good to backup your old files and database.

Default-user

Another problem I am having is Call to Action button is not a link. This is the html it displays <a type="button" class="btn btn-large">Button Text</a>

onesixty

Hi Masterok, we noticed this problem ealier and updated the theme with a fix 2 days ago. So you can download that one.

Default-user

Another bug I have found is in blog posts, it shows posting date as 9 -September. It take a date from month number. On your demo theme notice everything is 8 – August. Would be great if you could just tell me which file to change. Thanks!

onesixty

you are right! templates > entry-meta.php > line 1 Change <?php echo get_the_date(‘n F’); ?> into: <?php echo get_the_date(‘j F’); ?>

How do i change/modify the site footer in this theme? Thanks

Default-user

The footer copyright section.

onesixty

Hi Suprios, that part is generated by Wordpress. You can change the footer.php file manually (in templates folder). Hope it works!

Default-user

will i have to update this every time i update the theme?

Default-user

I have gone through all the files and none of the files contain the text showing in my footer copyright on my site??

onesixty

The actual text is not in the file. Its a variable in php code (in footer.php) that fills in the copyright text automatically. I am on my to the office now and will send you the exact piece of code you need to change in a few hours. Thanks for your patience.

Default-user

Still waiting on that information. I am sure others would like to know too. Why is this function not available in the theme options like many other themes? Thanks.

onesixty

in footer.php on line 34 you will find this:

© <?php echo date(‘Y’); ?> <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>

You can edit the blog info on the wordpress settings page. Or just change the php bit into hardcoded text. (then remove <?php… ?>)

Default-user
suprios Purchased

Using the WP settings page, can i make some text hyperlinked in this section? I would like to have a sister company hyperlinked in the copyright text?? Thanks

onesixty

If you use the WP settings page you need to change the Blog/site title. I would not advise to use links here. In that case you can better change the footer.php line (34).

You make a link like this <a href="url">link</a>

Hi there. There seems to be a problem with Top Bar options If I erase the phone number. It does not display it for a while but then it appears again.

onesixty

you are right… I will have to fix that in the code. you can fix it already via: admin/theme-settings.php line 135

change it into: “std” => ”” (remove phone number)

Default-user

Thanks. I am rally in love with this theme. Very powerful. I have one more question for you. It seems like directory plugin i am using is loading google maps library as well and it is causing few glitches with that plugin. So may i ask you, how can i disable this theme loading google library to test their idea? Is it all in Header template? Thanks a lot.

onesixty

sorry masterok, I overlooked this message. Which google library is loaded? You can change scripts in lib/scripts.php
