also… id like the blog post boxes on the main page to stay the same height… and ideas?

thanks

guuthemes

Hi,

In style.css look for -

recent-news .homepage

And you can try adding a max-height to this, ie; -

#recent-news .homepage { max-height: 700px; }

Many thanks

hey quick pre-sale question – really love the theme but not so sure about the menu effect. the blurred effect is quite tiresome on the eyes after a while. is there a possibility to turn this effect off?? thanks

guuthemes

Hi debs,

Yes this can be removed by removing 1 or 2 lines from style.css. Dead easy!! ;)

Many thanks

Default-user

hi, thanks for reply. just purchased so when you get a chance can you please send me what i need to change in css. thanks a mil.

guuthemes

Hi debs,

To remove the nav blur effect, open up style.css and remove this chunk of CSS -

#header-navigation[role="navigation"] li.fade a { color: transparent; text-shadow: 0 0 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, .4); } #header-navigation[role="navigation"] li.fade a { color: #333\9; }

Many thanks

Just bought Golden & love the theme. Great work.

I have an issue with images in body content of pages, and don’t know if it’s something I can easily adjust or not.

I like your styling of images in page content with the double line border. However, there are also times when I need to insert images into page content without having them bordered.

Is there a simple way to insert images without the borders when I need to, or do I have to alter the stylesheet and remove them entirely from all images? I’d rather not remove them entirely, so I thought I’d check with you. If what I’m asking isn’t possible with this theme, just let me know.

Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi David,

The easiest way to remove the border, is when you upload a new image to insert into a page, you will have various image options fields that you can choose, one of them is Image Properties, and under that is Border. Just put 0 (zero) into that field, and you should be all good.

Many thanks

Thanks very much for the help! One more quick question for you.

Have you ever had anyone that had an issue with Theme Options / General Settings / Footer Text? I moved my site from a dev server to the live site, then imported the theme options from the dev site because they didn’t load when I moved the site.

Everything worked great, except this:

I had entered a simple Copyright message in the Footer Text entry box before moving the site. Now that the site is live, the Copyright message shows up on the actual site, but not in the Footer Text entry box in Theme Options.

When I try to edit the copyright message in the Footer Text entry box, it adds my new message to the one previously on the site, rather than replacing it. Somehow, the old copyright message stays, and I can’t figure out how to remove it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here’s a link to the site:

Disregard this last post. I figured out the problem. There was no problem. I looked at the footer, and understand how it works now. Thanks again. Great theme!

guuthemes

Hi David,

No problem. Glad you’re all good now.

Hi! Great theme! I have a question. I don’t seem to figure out how to use TWO different Portfolios in the theme (Jonas Portfolio and Pamelas Portfolio). We are two persons in the company with different areas and type of work. When I insert a new portfolio “post” I can’t find where and how I assign the post to the right Portfolio. Now, everything ends up in my Portfolio?

Hi there,

Many thanks for the purchase.

This is not something you can do with the theme ‘out of the box’, abnd would require some code modification.

Thanks Guu. We’d love to give people the opportunity to hear more about our team. I’ll be linking these images to specific author posts in our blog or maybe individuals websites, but the possibilities are limitless.

The slider on the homepage. ‘LayerSlider’. How do I remove the border directly above it? For the life of me, I cannot find it.

guuthemes

Hi skylinegroup,

It is in flexslider.css -

#main-slider.flexslider .slides img { border-top: 3px solid #333; border-bottom: 3px solid #333; }

You need to remove or comment out the border-top

hi, in the portfolio main page i would like to have a maximum height on the images so all the images are the same height, landscape and portrait. width:auto; max-height:400px; where would i put this or is there another way to do this?

thanks

guuthemes

Hi debs,

You would need to modify style.css and target the portfolio items in there.

Hi !! there are black and white filters available or I have to do it via photoshop?:)

guuthemes

Hi Marineleberre,

Not with the theme. But I’m sure you could either achieve with this a plugin or like you say Photoshop.

Many thanks

Default-user

Thank you very much for the quick response! And it is possible to know which plugin to use? :$

guuthemes

Hi Marine,

I would do a Google search for a JS plugin/script, I have come across them in the past.

Not sure if this one may help -

Hii !! Already thank you very much for the link! I bought this today Golden wordpress. But after having export in ZIP format. what to do? I have to pay extra for working on or have a domain name? I don’t understand what to do next.

Hi Marineleberre,

Please take a look at this helpful document on what you need to do. It is also covered in the documentation supplied with the theme -

Hi,

Do you have any other plugins installed on the site?

It would be helpful if you could open a ticket across at -

So I can assist better.

I haven’t installed anything. But the new problem (I’m sorry. Still a problem!) Is that now the titles of the photos are no longer diagonal, they are horizontal. I don’t understand, I didn’t do anything.

Hi Marin,

Is all ok now?

Hi, nice theme! I am considering this for my next site, just need a few things, if you can offer a couple of tweaks, would help me go ahead:

a) The logo at the centre as a full width box with the menu below it

b) Display the “Author” picture (and name) below the post title on the home page “Read All About It” (Articles section) and on the blog post pages – may be in place of the ‘date’ circle. And I believe it is multi-author enabled – its what we want.

c) An ‘Author box’ for a little intro text on the blogs.

d) Can the home page slider be removed?

Thanks. Shiva

Hi shiv21,

I don’t offer customisations at this moment in time, due to time :(

Hello, I am hoping you cant help as I cant get any response from Envato.

I was interested in buying Golden and went ahead an purchased but somehow ended up with reboot?!?

Anyway I have tried to contact Envato to sort it out and they arent responding to my messages on here or via twitter. Do you know how to exchange the theme for the correct one or at least how to directly contact envato?

I really need to have this site sorted by the end of the weekend.

I would appreciate any help you could offer.

Many Thanks.

Brad

guuthemes

Hi Brad,

??? What happened there? My apologies for that, something must have gone screwy with the Envato system.

I, unfortunately cannot deal with that sort of thing buddy, and you would need to keep on at Envato support until you get a reply.

Good luck ;)

bradclarkuk

im not getting any responses at all – do you have any alternative contact info for support?

bradclarkuk

its ok they finally responded.

guuthemes

Hi Brad,

Glad they got back to you. Looks like you’re now cookin’ on gas!! ;)

This is a awesome and professional theme. I have come across a problem with the Twitter widget. The font for the tweets is the same as the background and so the letters dont show up. The only things that are a different color are the call signs and the hashtags. Anyone know anyway to get this fixed?

guuthemes

Hi aretilcreative,

My apologies, this will be fixed in the next update.

In them meantime, edit .widget found in style.css and add a color declaration to it (ie; color: #ddd;)

Many thanks

I have the same issue as aretilcreative, in that any widgets in the footer has body text the same colour as the footer background. I cant seem to find where to adjust the footer body text, only the footer link text.

guuthemes

Hi Brad,

Yeah need to fix this in the next update :(

In the meantime if you find (in style.css) -

.widget { margin-bottom: 30px; }

and add your choice of color to this (ie; color: #ddd;)

you should be cool.

Hi,

Is it possible to replace the slider on the home page with just a vimeo embed for a demo reel?

Thanks!!

guuthemes

Hi Stephanie,

You could take out the slider code from template-homepage.php and replace it with an embed from Vimeo.

You would then need to style it accordingly in style.css

Many thanks

Hi Guu!

Is it possible to easily rename the “project” portfolio permalink to something else? Eg…

From – yoursite.com/project/customprojectname

Into – yoursite.com/work/customprojectname

Changing “project” in the backend isn’t of concern, just in the permalinks is required.

Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi hobbledehoy,

You need to edit portfolio-type.php (found in /functions/custom-post-types/) and find line 35 -

'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'project', 'with_front' => false),

Change ‘project’ to whatever word you require.

Many thanks

Default-user

Hi Guu folks,

The above worked in renaming the slug, but every portfolio project (newly created after the change and those already existing) do not work, all bringing up 404 Not Found Errors.

Is there another code snippet that might need modifying perhaps?

Thank you

guuthemes

Hi,

You just need to go back and re-save your Permalinks, it just gives it a jolt to adjust to the new slug.

thanks

Hello, I was wondering if you could direct me in terms of modifying the homepage. I’d like to add the sidebar to the home screen below the introduction (so the slider and introduction would appear as-is, with a sidebar beside the remaining content). Possible? Thanks.

guuthemes

Hi cupcaaakes,

Ooh. Not without quite a bit of customisation. Are you comfortable with code?

Many thanks

I’m comfortable with diving in for sure.

Hi, Yes i checked the field “text logo” in theme option. I have an other question :) i would like to remove the red bloc, the stars and the lines on the home page slider, how can i do that please ? Thank u, (sorry for my bad english, i’m french) Sincerely, Emilie

guuthemes

Hi eemiliee,

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

There you can remove the background colors used on the slider. To remove the stars you need to edit template-homepage.php and remove the following -

<i class="icon-star" /> <i class="icon-star" /> <i class="icon-star" />

Many thanks

Hi, it’s me again.. i can’t erase the black bloc background under the title description of slider on the home page. How can i do please ? Thank you

guuthemes

Hi eemiliee,

You need to edit flexslider.css (found in /assets/css), and find this CSS -

.flex-title span { padding: 10px 15px; display: block; }

To this code add – background: none;

thanks

I’ve recently purchased this theme and I’m really enjoying the design and features. It works well for what I want to do. Two things however I’d love to get some direction on how to adjust.

1. On a single project portfolio page, it automatically crops to the middle. This is odd for displaying website designs. I could crop the image to the correct size, though when you click on the full image it obviously won’t display the full single page as desired. Is there a way to have it crop, but from the top?

2. The animation on the portfolio page when you click on a category, I would love to disable this or change it to a basic fade in / out. If it’s jQuery, I can adjust it myself, would just love some direction on where this is located if possible to change.

Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi jspinny,

Thanks for the kind words.

1 – You could adjust the crop dimensions found in functions.php, and to make them more portrait than landscape dimensions. You would then need to either re-upload your images, or use a plugin like ‘Regenrate Thumbnails’.

2 – The Portfolio uses Isotope, the Isotope file is found in /assets/js and the settings for it can be found in custom.js in /assets/js

Many thanks
