Hi folks,

Version 1.1 of Golden is now available to download.

This fixes issues with the contact form, firefox issues, adds support for both blog and page sidebars and more…

Many thanks

I have installed Version 1.1 and the Firefox issues are still there. There is no vintage effect on the buttons and header titles etc.

Using Firefox Version 19

Hi sliilvia,

The Firefox issues were not with the vintage effect on buttons etc.. These are using image-mask in the CSS, which is not currently supported by Firefox.

So they are not errors as such, just not supported in all browsers, but they fallback to the standard buttons fine.

Many thanks

Apologies for that. It was a mistake on my part. Amazing theme and really easy to work with. Thanks for your prompt support too!

guuthemes

No problem.

Thanks for the great feedback too.

Hi Guys,

Do you have any advice/best practices for updating it to 1.1? ;)

Thanks for your support!

guuthemes

Hi ByPixel,

Via FTP if you can, and backup your existing ‘golden’ folder before you do any updates. The remove the ‘golden’ folder from /wp-content/themes/ and upload the latest version.

@ ByPixel I just copied over all the existing files via FTP, then selected save option in the theme menu. However I haven’t made any modification to the theme so there were no conflict issues. Hope that helps!

guuthemes

Thanks sliilvia for the tips for ByPixel.

thanks ;)

Hi,

Please can you tell me where to remove the “old film” mask from the featured image on different pages. I have found where to remove it from the flexslider css but cant seem to find where to remove it from featured images of individual pages.

Please can you help?

Thanks so much

guuthemes

Hi krabiimaging,

Wherever you see -

-webkit-mask-image: url(assets/img/mask.png); -o-mask-image: url(assets/img/mask.png); -moz-mask-image: url(assets/img/mask.png); mask-image: url(assets/img/mask.png);

in your style.css, just remove those lines, and you’ll be all good!!

Many thanks

Hi – thanks, I had done that as I thought – but there is still this grey shade over all the images both in the flex slider and on the featured images for different pages. Please can you tell me is there some more code I need to remove or change.

Thanks so much for great support.

guuthemes

Ah yes sorry, find the CSS for the .feature-caption, and try removing -

background-color: rgba(227, 224, 218, .4);

Many thanks

Default-user

That worked!

Thanks as always.

guuthemes

Cool, glad things are ok.

Wanted to say that the documentation on this theme is fantastic. I’m a hardcore noob, and have been able to set it up on my own! (Still not anywhere near done though, but it’s a work in progress) I see you have an update now and I have no idea as to how to install the update. I see @siilvia’s instruction but that doesn’t make much sense to someone like me. :/ Anymore detailed instructions on updating?

guuthemes

Hey,

Thanks for the kind words, glad the documentation is serving you well ;)

I usually recommend updating via FTP if you can. Always make a backup of your existing ‘golden’ folder, then remove this from your /wp-content/themes folder, then upload the latest ‘golden’ folder back to the same location.

Like I say ALWAYS make a backup of your existing folder, just in case!!

Many thanks

Thank you! I will attempt it this week. In the meantime, how can I adjust the size of my youtube video embeds?

guuthemes

Hey,

In what respect, and where?

Many thanks

Default-user
on this page specifically, I would prefer the videos not be so large. http://www.kingdomperformance.org/summer-camp/ It’s just a standard page, not a post. Thanks!
guuthemes

Hi there,

What you could do via the Columns Shortcodes is place those 2 videos side by side (1 in each column), that could work quite well, and of course they would be much smaller in size? Just a though? ;)

Hi,

I am interested to purchase this theme. I would like to make sure if this theme allows me to change the background colour/patterns?

Please confirm.

Thank you.

guuthemes

Hey there,

It does indeed, very easily via the Theme Options panel. I think there around 50+ background patterns to choose from.

Many thanks

Also can I change the colour of the footer?

Thank you.

guuthemes

Hi Ultrahip,

You can yes, just open up style.css and find the following -

#footer-global[role="contentinfo"] { color: #fff; width: 100%; padding: 30px 0 20px 0; background: #333; }

Just change the background color to whatever you like.

Many thanks

Hi bureaucanard,

Could you open a ticket across at the support forum and I can investigate further for you.

Many thanks

Default-user

Where can i find the support forum? Should i use this one: http://support.envato.com/ ?

Default-user

ok,... but HOW do i add an Envato purchase code to my ticket?!!

guuthemes
http://support.ticksy.com/

Have you tried registering here?

Many thanks

Default-user

I did register there, but there is NO option to enter a purchase code!

guuthemes

Hmm that is very strange. I would possibly open a ticket with Ticksy themselves and ask for some assistance there.

Thank you for your understanding.

Default-user

Dude, i’ve purchased this theme and your support forum doesn’t work. I’ve opened a ticket on the ticksy forum a week ago, but no response.

I suggest that you investigate my problem anyhow, because there is no way i can open a ticket on your support forum.

Thank you in advance.

Default-user

- support forum is working now – I’ve submitted my ticket.

guuthemes

Hi bureaucanard,

Was it a problem at their end? How was it resolved?

Just a suggestion for a future release. Can we get an email address & Phone number addition to the team member Details Section? I know I could add it in the blurb, but a nice and tidy icon of a phone and email would be nice.

guuthemes

Duly noted, sounds like a good idea ;)

Hi there, We’re experiencing a recurring problem with the portfolio function of the theme. When ‘Slideshow’ is enabled and a series of images are uploaded, then one of the images is selected as the featured image, this image no longer shows up in the slideshow. Any idea why this might be happening?

guuthemes

Hi DenimUmbrella,

Yes this is a minor bug I spotted also. Let me look at a workaround.

In the meantime you could try adding your Featured Image first, then adding images to your slideshow.

Many thanks for your purchase, and support.

Is there a way to add social media icons on the top? Also phone number and e-mail?

Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi rgoldoni,

If you are reasonably ok with a little code, you could quite easily adapt the header to contain social icons (you could copy the code across from template-contact.php), email etc..

Many thanks

ok! We wll try that. Thanks ! And also, how can we remove the image filter on the sliders ?

guuthemes

Hi,

You need to edit flexslider.css found in /assets/css.

There you need to remove the following lines from .flex-caption -

background-color: rgba(227, 224, 218, .4); -webkit-mask-image: url(../img/mask.png); -o-mask-image: url(../img/mask.png); -moz-mask-image: url(../img/mask.png); mask-image: url(../img/mask.png);

Hi,

Is there a way to make the search function search portfolio posts? At the moment it only searches blog posts from what I can see.

Thanks

guuthemes

Hi krabiimaging,

The theme currently searches on just blog posts, will update this in version 1.2.

In the meantime if you open a ticket across at the support forum, I can give you tweaked code you would need.

It was requested that I rip out the title layover on the featured images. Where is this found? Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi skylinegroup,

Well starting with the page.php file (and you will find it in a few others) – you need to remove the following code -

<div class="feature-caption"> <h1 class="feature-title"><span><?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'gt_page_strapline', true) ?></span></h1> </div>

Many thanks

Hi guuthemes, a quick question for you :)

Lets say my portfolio list of items becomes very large (100+), obviously the ‘all’ filter isn’t going to be great as it will try to render 100 items on the page at once.

Please can you tell me a way to either:

a: Limit the number of items that ‘All’ displays

or

b: make the portfolio paginate when it reaches a max number of items

How do you handle this in your theme please?

Many thanks

guuthemes

Hi sliilvia,

Yes you do have a point, this is something I would like to take a further look at in a future update.

Just curious how to change the logo image size. I’ve hunted in the stylesheet with no luck . It scales it to 160px × 48px but I’d like to make it larger. Any help is appreciated!

guuthemes

Hi Antiqology,

The image is set to be responsive so it scales nicely when you resize your browser. You can remove this by editing style.css and removing -

#logo img { max-width: 100%; height: auto; }

You could then place the above code into your Media Queries at the bottom of style.css to it still fits when you scale down to Mobile size.

1 – How can we add social icons to the top of all pages? 2 – At this page http://r2-labs.com/project/tiamat/ you can see there is only a left arrow and this is the first product. How can we keep arrows in all the projects ? It makes no sense remove the arrow, the user should have the ability to choose if he wants see the next or the last projetc.

Thank you!

guuthemes

Hi rgoldoni,

1 – You would need to look at copying the code from the template-contact.php file into your header file, and style it to your liking.

2 – There is only one arrow on your first project, as the theme was built primarily as a showcase of work. So semantically there would only be one arrow on your first item, and everything after that it an older project than the last. You have setup the theme more as ‘product’ showcase, so would need to edit the code accordingly to achieve your customisation.

Many thanks

Hello,

1 – OK we ahve no idea how to do that but we will try that.

2 – Sorry but I dont agree, even if are projects, users want to have the baility to see the next or last. If we have a collection of projects we want to give the ability to the user to choose what he wants to look for, but ok, so there is no way to add the arrow right? Dont you have a code you could give to us so we can just copy and paste please?

It would save our lifes!

Thank you very much.

guuthemes

Hi rgoldoni,

The best route I would suggest is using a plugin like this -

This should help you achieve what you require.

Many thanks again

Of course, you may need to have a play with the styling but it should get you up and running quite quickly.

Hi folks,

Just a quick heads-up.

We are removing the ‘Twitter Widget’ from the theme in the next version, due to the fact that Twitter have now changed to the new 1.1 API, which makes us unable to provide it with the theme (Thanks Twitter)!!

Many thanks for your understanding.
