Im trying to decide between this theme and another one of yours (hanna) for my new blog. I just have a couple of prebuy questions…

Does the theme come with the headers on the main page (“what’s in the works” etc)?

Can you reorder the parts of the home page and take some out (eg the dream team part or “what we offer you”)?

Can you put your own logo at the top left…and how big can it be?

Thanks

guuthemes

Hi ouissi,

You can re-order the homepage with Golden, yes. And you are free to remove sections completely.

You can also add your own logo very easily from the Theme Options panel. It will be resized for you.

Many thanks

Thank you…and my other question…

Does it come with the titles “what’s in the works”, what we offer you” etc?

guuthemes

Hi,

Yes you can easily change these title to whatever you require via the Theme Options panel, so you could easily change ‘What’s in the works’ to ‘Our Work’ etc…

thanks

Hi Guuthemes, How can I get the client’s logo links on the homepage to open _blank and not _self? thanks

guuthemes

Hi,

You would need to edit the file template-home.php. Look for the logo code on around line 309. Then change the code for each logo from -

<li><a href="<?php echo $data['text_client_logo_one_url']; ?>"><img src="<?php echo $data['client_logo_one']; ?>" alt="" /></a></li>

to -

<li><a href="<?php echo $data['text_client_logo_one_url']; ?>" target="_blank"><img src="<?php echo $data['client_logo_one']; ?>" alt="" /></a></li>

thanks

How do I change it so that the full blog content shows on the blog page rather than the excerpt? I want each blog post to show the full post.

Can you change the colours of the footer and text etc? So you could go for a more sepia effect rather than a black and pink if chose too?

thanks

guuthemes

Yep and yep :) Cheers

Hi there. Nice theme.

only one problem. Im a big fan of Visual Composer. If i try to activate this plug in the slider of Golden doesn’t work anymore. Any idea why? Can you help please?

guuthemes

Hi there,

Thanks for the feedback.

Golden has not been tested with Visual Composer so I cannot ensure compatibility there.

I will have to run some tests on my local copy.

thanks

Default-user

the team of Visual Composer was very helpful and they provided a fix.

guuthemes

Hi tonpanjer,

A big thank you to the folks over at WP Bakery. Glad things are working great.

This theme is very beautifully designed, but my experience with it has been soured by the supposed excellent customer support, which is subpar in reality. The main support person, Mel, is actually quite unhelpful and somewhat officious, attacking each issue like it’s the most mundane chore in the world, and constantly reminding people how lucky they are to have support at all and how the developer offers it out of the goodness of his heart.

My problem, which seems a common one for many people across several of the themes, remains unresolved. Mel has gone so far as to mark my thread as resolved – even though it isn’t – which means I can make no further replies. I would suggest that Guu Themes invest a bit of time reflecting on the quality of their customer support rather than the deflection that seems to be standard at the moment. There are plenty of themes and theme companies out there who really do offer excellent support, and I for one will be turning back to those in the future.

guuthemes

Hi forbreakfast,

I’m truly sorry if you feel the level of support you have received up until this point has been less than satisfactory.

I will chat to Mel, and see how we can remedy this issue.

Many thanks

A part of my theme options don’t work. If I change the fonts or font colors, it doesnt change in the frontend. My website is gwkt.nl.

I also tried to import the demo content, but it also doesnt seem to change anything up front. Hope you can help me out!

Thank you!

Best regards,

Laureth

Hello,

The template is really great and customizable. Can you tell me how my image in the header can only take 100% of the page. example: http://www.autourdemayline.com/

In my page, I have a horizontal offset some pixel, the horizontal scroll page is activated.

Thank you very much for your return.

sorry for my bad english, I’m french;-)

I tried your support forums, but it says they are closed. Anyhow, on the default template, I’m having trouble with the sidebar as it doesn’t display. I’m also wondering howto add my own custom template page.

Nvm, created a new topic on the forums.

Hello. I’m aware that your dedicated forum is where we’re supposed to post questions, but I am having a difficult time with it. I have registered, entered my purchase code, etc., yet I can’t seem to discover a way to post a topic. Each time I visit, the forums are closed- and I don’t know if that’s the reason I’m not finding any way to post a topic.

Once, a long time ago, I accessed your old support forum and had no trouble getting a question answered. That’s why I’m a little confused.

I suppose that’s my first question. What could I be doing wrong when I visit your new support forum?

2nd question is this. I have entered a few small custom css changes in the Theme Options custom css box in the WP dashboard. After doing this, I check the page where I’m supposed to see the changes in effect and nothing happens.

To test the code, I download the theme stylesheet via FTP and make the same modifications I tried to make within the Theme Options custom css box. I upload the stylesheet and check the page, and the changes are visible.

Is there a reason the custom css box in the Theme Options panel wouldn’t be working?

I have added !important after a couple of them while testing within the Theme Options custom css area and that doesn’t change anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What is the featured image size for the pages?

guuthemes

Hi Denisse,

You can use any size image you want, but keep it too a minimum of at least 2000px wide for larger monitors etc..

Hi!

Thanks for making such a beautiful site. I’m trying to adjust the height of the slider, but when I look in the style.css I see this:

PLEASE NOTE: The Content Slider uses Flexslider. All styling for this can be found in /assets/css/flexslider.css */

But where can I find this and how can I increase the slider, so you can also read the first few lines beneath the slider (on a desktop). I’ve never done some html, so please help :-).

Thanks very much!

I really enjoy the theme. I would like to know if there is a way I can add contact information to the header next to the logo. However, if this can’t be done, where can I change the auto resize for the logo?

Thanks for your help!

Ok, I figured out how to reset the sizing for the header elements. Thanks anyway!

Can the map be made responsive so it isn’t wall-to-wall on smaller devices?

guuthemes

Hi cshaver,

You would need to look at the Media Queries at the bottom of style.css, and add some padding left/right for the map on mobile devices.

Many thanks

I have emailed GT without response and I have a few questions. Its disappointing to pay for something and then have no response to questions.

First, is it possible to have my email attached to the contact form but not show on the page, I worry about spamming and stuff. Second to that, the contact form doesn’t seem to send emails to ANY account I have tried. And yes I have check the spam folder on all accounts.

Second, I want to change the size of the header image to be larger, it is so small. Is there a way to do this through theme options? If not in theme options than in the CSS, but where?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, I have bought the golden theme and tried logging into the support forum but am told that the purchase code has already been used by someone else! How do I get in? Can someone please help? I can be found at semota@me.com.

How would a customer install the exact version “Golden” as on the Guutheme site? I’ve tried working with a blank canvass, but the slider has been giving me issues. It would help if I could see how the advertised “Golden” theme was coded, so I can make changes/alterations, and just replace/delete pages and images.

Hi shawn,

Can you pop across to the support forum at http://guuthemes.com and I’ll gladly assist you.

I installed the xml file but no images appear and when I go to specific pages there is an absence of content, which I later realized php was used to direct content for those specific pages. I thought I could visually see/adjust image columns, sliders, e.t.c but this process of call multiple files is time consuming/confusing. I have the most recent version of wordpress and it’s displaying the slider screwy, not at all as the display version on the purchase site. Is there an issue with the flex slider file? I would like to totally re-install the version on the display site, should I empty the directory on my ftp and upload the xml file? If I do that how will I guarantee the images will upload as well once I copy the golden template folder into the appropriate ftp directory? Thanks… Also I have entered a thread on guuthemes.com I will copy and paste this info

guuthemes

Hi,

I have got back to you on the support forum.

many thanks
