Nice job with top navigation – blur effect.

Thanks navigator. The nav blur effect is the next big thing ;)

Okay, been delving into this great theme since I bought it – it really looks great. I have a few questions, however, and I hope you can help:

1.) Can I put social icons in the top navigation area?

2.) What is the ideal logo size?

3.) Can I make it so that the rollover effect still happens on portfolio items but the text links to nothing??

4.) How can I modify the milliseconds for the slider?

Thanks ahead of time!

guuthemes

Hey KingLennie,

Many thanks for kind words, glad you’re enjoying it!

1 – You could with some small tweaks to the code, yes. 2 – The logo can be any-size you want, as the theme is setup to resize it proportionally anyway. But if you wanted to keep a sharper image I would say go with something around 100-150px wide. 3 – You could yes by removing the link tags from around the heading in your template files – 4 – You will find the settings for Flexslider in custom.js in the /assets/js folder.

Many thanks

KingLennie

Thanks for the reply! Got everything but the social icons in the header working. Will keep at it.

Hi, really great theme. A few questions before i buy it : -> could i easily translate it in french ? -> could i add some sound player in a page ? -> On a wide screen, top image stay on the left, could i change that easily ? Whatever, thanx for your work. Cheers.

guuthemes

Hi cyriaque,

The translation files are included ready for you to translate into the language of your choosing.

You can embed SoundCloud audio players in a page.

Yes you could tweak the top image in the CSS.

Many thanks

Thanx for your answer. I bought it, but i can’t change language even if i use poedit to translate the default.po. Everything is english which is not the case with other basic themes (ugly themes ;-)). Could you please tell me what i’ve done wrong ? Is there another way to translate it ? I’m on WP 3.5.1, french version, with cache disabled for the tests. Furthermore, i have a lot of internal error (500) when i try to check a portfolio (no php error, just that 500 error). There too, could you please help ? Sorry for that. And thanx again.

Hi cyriaque,

Hmm very strange? Best thing would be to open up a ticket at – http://guuthemes.ticksy.com and I can help you out there.

Many thanks for your purchase, and support.

The theme looks great! I’m very interested in purchasing, but I have a couple of questions first. I’m wondering if the theme comes with PSD’s of the images on each page… I understand that the photos themselves don’t come with the theme, but I like the vintage overlay effect on the images, and I want to keep that uniform if I purchase. Plus, it helps to have PSD’s to create your graphics and images the same size to fit that particular area.

Also, on the portfolio page, I like the mouseover effect, and I’m wondering how the images that show are controlled. I want to use it as a client page to display our past and present clients. Is it simply controlled by choosing a category, or are there pre-determined options that you can choose according to the work that you did for that client?

Thanks so much!

Also, is there an option to box this theme instead of having it full screen 100%? Thanks.

I am thinking of purchasing this theme but is there a way to add a right sidebar? Everything else looks great, I love the design!

guuthemes

Hi swagers,

It comes with the page options to easily choose between full width page, and page with right sidebar.

Many thanks

I ended up just purchasing your theme. I just jumped in, and I notice that there are placeholders, and not .psd’s, however, the .png’s included do not import with the provided .xml file. Would like to get everything imported including images. Can you please assist? Thank you!

guuthemes

Hey Brandon,

Only just seen your message. Normally take weekends off, but decided to jump on here ;)

Please take a look in the Demo folders that come with the theme, there are text documents which explain what you need to do there.

Many thanks for your purchase, and support.

brandoncarr

Hey man, thanks for taking the time. I understand needing the weekend off. Today is my first day off in I don’t know how long. I normally work during breaks and lunches, and after I get off of work. So, thanks for your support. I’ll check out the documentation and check back in a bit. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Beautiful theme! Is there any change you’ll add a video to the main slider? That would sell it for me.

I noticed some speed issues on some browsers. The latest firefox on mac seems to have issues with the site. It’s a bit slow to load and choppy scrolling around. Safari seems a bit better, but still has some delays. Not sure if this is from the images or something with the effects.

guuthemes

Hi strillogy,

At this current time the theme is slider is just setup for images. There is a roundabout way you can add video, and I may possibly implement in a future release.

Have tested on the latest version of FF on Mac, and it seems all good to me? Safari is the same, seems fine. The images that are used on the preview site are quite chunky .png files so this may be the case on certain machines. Obviously if you were purchasing the theme, I would always recommend that your images are as optimised as they can be.

Many thanks

Good day sir-

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. I have a quick question. On the portfolio page, onMouse over on each page displays an image according to each project type chosen from within the portfolio creation page. I see the option to create additional project types, however, I do not see an option to add an icon.

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Brandon

guuthemes

Hi Brandon,

You add an icon on a ‘per portfolio item’ basis. So when you add a new project you will see the option to add a custom icon.

Many thanks

brandoncarr

Thanks, I actually found it a little earlier. I really like the way in which icons can be added in this theme. Great job incorporating that! Thanks again.

guuthemes

Cheers buddy, glad you like the functionality ;)

The ‘Font Awesome’ icon set is just that, awesome, so many to choose from. It rocks!!

thanks again

Hi guys… Thanx for the beautiful theme, I bought it today and I love the design! My only problem is that every time I try to upload the golden.zip file it tells me that it cannot upload???

Please help me, I also tried uploading it through cpanel, but then when I activate the theme it says that the theme is broken because the stylesheet is missing??

Don’t know what to do.

Hi semi-ginger,

Many thanks for the purchase.

Please take a quick look at this TF article, it should help -

Hi Ginger, I had the same problem with the zip file, could be a php upload size limit, so I uploaded it through FTP then I had no problem activating it but I can’t see any custom font. I’ve just opened a support ticket.

guuthemes

Hi ByPixel,

I’ll take a look at your support ticket this morning.

Sometimes with the Theme Options panel, when you first activate the theme, you need to do a ‘save’ in the Theme Options, to see the styling.

Many thanks

Hello, Just purchased your theme.. Was very impressed with the demo..

However, I have a bit of a large problem.. I cannot for the life of me get the demo content to work correctly. I am willing to pay you a modest amount to help me fix this. I have followed all of your included instructions to the “T”, multiple times, reinstalled the theme, installed it with both ftp and the wordpress installer and still nothing. Also the theme options controls are not working at all. Anything I change in the theme options controls does nothing. I am willing to hop on skype and give you access to the site, like I said I would even pay you (within reason) – just want to get this fixed. All I want is the demo content working correctly and the theme options controls working, thats it. Thanks

guuthemes

Hi cameracamp,

Hmm, have tested the demo content again on a brand new WordPress install, and all was great.

If you open up a ticket at – http://guuthemes.ticksy.com

I will try and get you sorted out here.

Many thanks again

I love this theme its super easy and looks great. I have a few questions

1) How do I obtain the longitude and latitude for the contact page (i tried google maps but couldn’t find that information)

2) What other icon short codes are available for the Services section?

3) How do i get the twitter widget to work?

Thanks again for a great theme I love it!

guuthemes

Hi pdiddy2aop,

Many thanks for the purchase, and kind words.

Have you had chance to look through the documentation supplied with the theme? This explains fully how to setup the Google Map.

The Icon Shortcodes are basically any of the Icons from the ‘Font Awesome’ set. Basically a lot of icons ;)

Have you inputted your details into the Twitter Widget?

Many thanks

Default-user

Hello There,

Thank you for your reply, I did have a change to look through the documentation and I was able to solve the maps issue i was having however I was not about to find the short code icon options for Services.

I found the folder Font Awesome but I still can’t find the icon set or my options. Can you help me find that?

As for my twitter account I did input all of the relevant data and it still doesnt work, what do i do about that?

guuthemes

Hey there,

Glad you got the Maps working.

To use the Icon shortcodes, whenever you add a new Service item you will see a field on the page labelled ‘Service Icon’. It has instructions there on how to add the icon shortcode, along with a link (which will open up a new window) showing you all the available shortcodes you can use.

Strange thing with the Twitter?? Open up a ticket at http://guuthemes.ticksy.com and I can investigate further for you.

Many thanks

Default-user

Thank you, these theme became more amazing with all of the added resources.

However now that i have updated my theme with new icons, for some reason it will not display properly. please take a look at my website, more specially the services both on the home page and the page title services

www.XposeTheGap.com

Default-user

Never mind I fixed the issue, i needed to shorten the verbiage to get them to fit

guuthemes

Glad you’re all fixed. And thanks for the kind words.
