Discussion on Fade - Responsive, Parallax Bootstrap Theme

109 comments found

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

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

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.

Hello, Are PSD files included? If not what font is used in logo? Thanks.

Hi Masterok. PSD files are not included since the while design was created in css. But here is the logo font link for you (pacifico) http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/pacifico?q%5Bterm%5D=Pacifico

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.

Default-user

I’ve just updated it and slider works fine in ie8 now~ Thanks a lot!

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

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!

roaryw Purchased

Thanks so much for this theme—one of the easiest, most well documented, and most beautiful that I’ve used. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. 5 stars!

Cheers Roaryw! Much appreciated

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.

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’); ?>

The demo link is broken…

onesixty

Had something to do with ipv6 records. Should work now. Could you verify? thnx!

Default-user

Yes, works, thanks

onesixty

Great! Hope you like the theme

Nice theme, i have a question…

Can i integrate a CAPTCHA to the contact form? Which CAPTCHA plugins can i use that will work?

Thanks.

onesixty

Yes you can. We use contact form 7 in the demo, but you can use any plugin

1- Am i able to install woocommerce with this theme? 2- Have you tested it? 3- Will i need to do any additional work to get it working properly? Thanks

Hi Suprios. 1. yes 2. yes 3. no! Hope that answers your question :)

How do i change/modify the site footer in this theme? 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… ?>)

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>

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.
