Hi, some presale questions :) 1) Instead of the slider, is it possible to have a static full-width rectangular area with a photo, text and clickable buttons? Can this be done within the dashboard, or does it require extra coding? 2) Can a “subscribe” form be linked to an AWeber autoresponder, so that the site automatically sends an email to the new subscriber when they submit the form, and adds them to the AWeber database? (I know you have MailChimp integrated, but they are not suitable because the “From” address changes with each email, making it incompatible with safe senders’ lists in email clients like Outlook.) 3) Can the theme’s user account area be linked to the autoresponder’s email system, so that when a user changes an email address or privacy preferences, it will automatically update AWeber’s database? 4) Is it possible to create a 5 column labelled pricing table? Not a deal breaker, but just curious. 5) Is there a way to offer digital content that can be downloaded from a page created with this theme, or will it require a separate plugin? If separate, do you have a recommendation in terms of compatibility? Thank you! Lis

Hi there,

1) You can use the slider to create a single static slide, with a photo, text, and buttons – doing it this way will allow a lot more customisation control.

2) Yes, you can add whatever code you like in here.

3) There may be a plugin for this, it isn’t something the theme would be responsible for.

4) Yes, that is possible!

5) You’d need a separate plugin, something like this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-digital-downloads/

Hope that helps!

Hi,

How can i change the paper icon when i am on an article image?

Thanks !

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Are you referring to the hover icon shown on articles when in a blog list?

- Ed

julianduty

Yes, that’s it.

SwiftIdeas

You would need to edit /includes/sf-content-display/sf-post-formats.php line 330:

$item_icon = "file-alt";

The icons are font awesome, so you can choose one from here (minus the “icon-”) – http://fontawesome.io/3.2.1/icons/

If I want to use portfolio filters, but my category has an ampersand in it, say:

Dogs & Cats

The filter doesn’t work.

You can’t add the ampersand to the slug either as it gets stripped out.

The only option I can see is to do this:

Category name: Dogs and Cats Slug: dogs-and-cats

I’d much prefer to use an ampersand, any thoughts on how to do this?

Thanks!

Thanks Ed, I’ve managed to remove the “portfolio” section by editing the php file and turning off “has_archive”

The new issue I have is that when you are on a portfolio item, the breadcrumb links to <all-categories>/?portfolio-category=Dogs-and-cats/

How do I remove the ?portfolio-category and change it to a normal permalink? As this is causing a 404 error

Thanks

SwiftIdeas

Check the breadcrumb settings, there should be options for this.

- Ed

Thanks for the great theme! Question about Swift Framework Portfolio Grid used in a footer widget. I only want one category in my portfolio to show in the footer instead of all portfolio entries. Possible?

Cheers! Doug

SwiftIdeas

Hi Doug,

Not as of yet, but we’ll see what we can do for a future update.

We are having some Javascript issues. On the home page sometimes the blog loads and sometimes its blank. We have to refresh to get it to load. Any suggestions on fixing this issue. Thanks.

Default-user

The blog was due to an opacity issue. But testimonials also sometimes shows and sometimes not. That is set with the revslider. Any known bugs about that.

Default-user

Actually it’s flexslider and I updated the js file for that to v2.2 but still having the same issues.

SwiftIdeas

The latest version of flex slider has issues with the blog, I wouldn’t recommend updating it.

If you can provide a link, I’ll happily check to see if I can find the cause for you.

Hi, I love this theme. It really looks great and is very user friendly. I am having difficulty changing the Footer Layout. It does not allow me to switch from four columns to any of the other options. What could be the problem? Netanel

SwiftIdeas

Ahh, what browser are you using? Can you test a different one?

- Ed

Default-user

Brilliant! That did the trick! I was working in MS IE 11 and switched to Firefox—no problem then! Thank you so much, Netanel

SwiftIdeas

Glad I could help :)

Hi there, I have a question before buy; in the demo, we can’t see the icons in the top menu like Cart, Subscribe, Accound and the circular items after the slider. Is a bug or is our browser?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Working fine here! What browser are you using?

How hard will it be for me to put a phone number in the top left header WITH the social media icons and not have to update everytime the theme updates? This is mostly important in the mobile view I like the phone number clickable.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

That’s possible as standard, just adding the text to the top bar text config – https://www.dropbox.com/s/dblg3zrulmb5s4h/Screenshot%202014-02-23%2002.27.30.png

why is there so much css shown in the source code? most other themes link to the file.

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jon,

This is the dynamic css which is generated from the theme/color options. It’s loaded in the <head> tag, as this is the most reliable, performance friendly method. You’ll find it loads much quicker than loading an extra file.

See here for a more in-depth explanation – http://vatuma.com/tutorials-tips-and-tricks/for-developers/creating-dynamic-css-for-wp-theme.html

How to remove slider caption which i imported while installing demo content?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Do you mean the caption on the slider on the home page?

- Ed

Default-user

Actually i got that from homeslider.txt :)

I Have a question- Can i add an iamge in header that could appear below Menu bar and above slider?

SwiftIdeas

You can, but you’d need to edit header.php to do so.

Hi,

I’d love to know how to display 12 last articles on archive page, and not 10 ( http://www.unplay.fr to see what i mean).

10 is a really bad number for my project ^^Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

The option is in Settings > Reading > Blog pages show at most

Hope that helps!

Hi!

I’m having trouble with the layout of my blog in masonry format. The blog posts are jumping to the second row leaving wide gaps. Is there a way to adjust this? here’s a link to my page: http://www.beylinbeauty.com/blog/ thanks! -Daniela
SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You have the page set as the posts page in Settings > Reading, so disable that, or go to Theme Options > Default Meta Options/Archive Options and then set the sidebar layout to none there.

- Ed

Default-user

That worked! Thanks so much! I love your theme!

SwiftIdeas

Great, you’re welcome. Glad you like it!

Hi,

I’d love this Wordpress theme. A customer only has one wish for the mobile view:

In the current situation, the mobile menu shows the current page (for example: Home) before you have expanded the menu. Our customer wants to replace this, so that on each page the same phrase will be shown: (Menu / Select Page in this case).

Could you please give some support how to realize this? Thanks in advance.

Kind regards, Schelte Brandsma

SwiftIdeas

Hi there!

You can do this by editing /js/functions.js and removing lines 212-220:

// Set the current page for each nav if exists
var mobileNavToggle = jQuery('.show-menu');        
mobileNavToggle.each(function() {
    var mobileMenu = jQuery(this).next('nav').find('ul.menu');
    var menuSelectedText = mobileMenu.find('.current-menu-item:last > a').text();
    if (menuSelectedText !== "") {
        jQuery(this).html(menuSelectedText + '<i class="icon-angle-down" />');
    }
});

Hope that helps.

Hi there,

I uploaded the demo content but it did not work properly; On the top bar, the “subscribe” button shows an email form. I did not get it. How can I implement it? I tried mailchimp but I am not satisfied with their design. Also, my wordpress is in french. The “register” button has been translated with a word I am not satisfied. How can I change it? Could you please provide me a step-by-step plan to do so. I went to Appearance>Editor but couldn’t find the code to update in the css “header.php”

Thanks for your help. DJ

Hi Ed, the revolution slider is great! i made 10 sliders already:-) One question: how to change the font, if you don’t want to use the google font? I changed it in the CSS and in the appearance of the slider, but it doesn’t work. I just want to use Georgia. Tnx in advanced!

Default-user

Oh, it’s solved! It’s working now, sorry:-)

SwiftIdeas

Glad you sorted it :)

hello,

really useful theme and nice typography in the content pages. i have some pre-purchase questions.

1. do i have to use the grey headline-bar (with stripes in background)? because it would be cool to have a headline without stripes and without shadow (just black text on white background).

here you can see the headline background i was talking about: http://flexform.swiftideas.net/features/theme-options/

2. is it possible to have much bigger headlines in revolutions slider and on the top of the pages? is the typography always responsive (for smartphones) even if i display the typography much bigger for the desktop version? Or would that cause the problem that the headline could not be read on smartphones?

3. is it possible to have all buttons without round margin? and without changing the margin of the button on hover?

4. is it possible to remove the shadow in the revolution slider?

5. can i have customisation support in case if i need that for the wishes of my client? and how much would that cost (per hour)?

6. is there a page builder included or does the theme work with the “live composer” plugin?

7. do you have SEO optimizations inculded? Even is it not a problem for SEO when more than 3000 people uses the same theme? (does google not think that the site isn’t unique?) sorry, just a question i am thinking about!

thank you in advance!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

Thanks, glad you like it!

1) You can set this as your like in the theme options (background color/image and text colour).

2) You can set it bigger yes, and it will still be responsive to fit on mobiles.

3) The buttons are images, so you could replace these.

4) Yes, this is set in the revolution slider settings.

5) Unfortunately we don’t have the time to offer customisation support.

6) Our own page builder is included. See it in action here: https://vimeo.com/61192542

7) SEO optimisation included. No need to worry about others using it, the template has no effect on the seo content.

Hope that helps.

- Ed

and last question:

how easy is it for a client (without any css / html knowledge) to handle the content in the backend of this theme? for example change images and text?

SwiftIdeas

The content is extremely easy to change – check the page builder video in my previous reply.

Hi Ed, in the slider: is it possible to stop at slide 1, then e.g click on it (as a go to next slide), and when slide 2 runs, it doesn’t stop anymore? Tnx a lot!

SwiftIdeas

The only other idea I have is to set the first slide duration to be very high?

- Ed

Default-user

Tnx! I had to set the delay very high…with this option i created a ‘knowledge quiz’:-) Maybe a nice idea for others too. You could see it on my homepage of annevroegop.nl

Hello,I notice the post title in the pattern like ”<blog name> | <post title> ” and homepage title is ”<blog name> | <blog description>”.

But I want to change post title to the format ”<post title> – <blog name>” while remain homepage title original.How should I do?

Thanks a lot

Default-user

I know title pattern is controled by the header.php, line 81.

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

I’d recommend you use WordPress SEO or Yoast to change this.
