Hi there, love the theme!

I’ve got a pre-sale question, are we able to change the look of the sub-headers? i.e. the diagonal header style with the star?

guuthemes

Hi lollepopp,

You can change the color and font of these very easily from the Theme Options, if you wanted to remove the stars, drop shadow etc.. they are very small edits in style.css (stylesheet).

Many thanks

No PSDs included?

guuthemes

Hi Ryan,

No .psd files with Golden. The majority of the site was designed ‘in browser’, so only unfinished mockups exist in .psd format.

Many thanks

Hi, again,

Is there a way to disable the header images, or rather the space they take up? In Chrome, not having an image works fine, but in IE or Firefox there is a gap where an image should be at the top of the page: http://imgur.com/g7rIckv

Thanks!

Hi,

Is it possible to create custom icons for the services? I hope so.

Thanks! Noelia

guuthemes

Hi noelia27,

You can easily change the icons from the admin panel.

The theme uses the fantastic ‘Font Awesome’ set -

Hi

I’m struggling with how to insert icons for the services. Can you help please.

Thanks Al

guuthemes

Hi Alasdair,

You need to add a new service, where there is the option to add an icon via Shortcode.

Many thanks

Default-user

Ok. I’ve added the service but it’s the adding shortcode that has me stumped. I’m a noob so stay with me. Your example says [icon name=icon-file] but I don’t know how to translate that into the icon that I want – say for example I wanted icon-camera, what would I enter in the service icon field?

guuthemes

Ok, so if you wanted to add the camera it would be -

[icon name=icon-camera]

thanks

Default-user

So simple. Thank you

guuthemes

No problem. Enjoy the theme ;)

Hey Congrats with this great theme! I got an issue with the “read more” buttons on the homepage. I had to translate them to dutch and it did work fine.

Now i posted a new article and the read more button is there but without the text. I checked it with firebug and there is some weird code, but the article next to the new one do have a normal read more button.

Can you please check it out for me?

Hi, I have a problem with the size of my logo. I try to upload many different size but always my logo still so little. I would like my logo most bigger. How can i do ? Thank u, Sincerely, Emilie

guuthemes

Hi eemiliee,

This is because the logo is set to be responsive, so if folks upload a logo it will resize on mobile devices etc.. If you would like to remove this you need to edit style.css and look for -

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

Just remove or comment out this CSS.

Many thanks

I’m having problems posting a gallery on a page (not a post) images are not going to full size and I’m not able to customize my gallery in any way. I don’t have a lightbox plugin in the way as mentioned in a prior post. Any ideas? I posted a ticket also.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Let me take a look at your ticket.

If you get an error while trying to save your theme options do this: Give permissions 777 for the wp-content/themes/golden/assets/css/dynamic-css/options.css

and it is solved.

Hello! Is there a guide for using this theme? I’m using wordpress as Cms for the first time! Thank you

guuthemes

Hi giuliavercelli,

There is documentation included with the theme, which will help you in great detail with setting the theme up correctly.

Quick question guys, does the main image slider on the homepage HAVE to have the overlay with text and button?

guuthemes

Hi enterhiro,

It does not no. With a few small edits, you can easily remove these. I can give you advice on what to remove/edit.

Many thanks

Hello,

I have a couple of problems with the theme. FIrstly I tried your fix for the widgets in the footer text but im not that good with CSS and have been unable to change the footer widgets taxt colour.

Also, the blog that uses a masonry style display on the homepages, displays massive gaps between the blog articles.

My site is drinkupgroup dot com

I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks.

Brad

I’m having trouble loading the map. I entered the longitude and latitude of the location from Google Maps and it doesn’t work. I even tried the longitude and latitude of your demo and that didn’t work. I didn’t change very much at all of the theme. Any ideas why it’s not working?

Hi there, I’m pretty happy with this theme, only one question: Is it possible to have more than just one portfolio-page?

Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi,

Not without creating a new template file, and customising.

Many thanks

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Do you guys do any customization? If not, can you recommend someone. I am trying to create 2 services sections. Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi zdaniel,

Not currently. I would jump onto the TF boards though, as there are quite a few folks that could help out.

Many thanks

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Also I am confused on what size the images need to be for the slider. Can you clarify?

guuthemes

Hi zdaniel,

Is this for the Portfolio slider images?

thanks

Default-user

Yes on the home page

guuthemes

Hi,

If you wanted to take the images on the preview site of Golden as an example, they are around 2000px wide x 728px height.

thanks

LOVING this theme! But I’m struggling to make my home page work properly. The slider, quotes, meet the team, latest news, etc. don’t show up on a static home page for me. I can add a header image to the page itself that behaves something like the slider (meaning the strapline appears, but no revolving slider images), but that’s about it. Any thoughts?

guuthemes

Hi dustin,

Have noticed from your latest post that you got everything working ok. Enjoy the theme!

thanks

Scratch that, figured out my failure! Now I’m trolling the stylesheet to see if I can figure out how to adjust the slider height. If anyone has a recommendation, let me know!

guuthemes

Hi Dustin,

You could look at editing flexslider.css, and changing the slider height in there.

thanks

Hello Guuthemes,

I am having an issue in importing the .xml file in your “demo data” folder… for some reason I get the following errors:

Failed to import Media “slider_placeholder”

Failed to import Media “golden_header_logo”

Failed to import Media “golden_header_logo”

Failed to import Media “logo_placeholder”

Failed to import Media “portfolio_thumb_placeholder”

Failed to import Media “portfolio_image_placeholder”

Failed to import Media “team_photo_placeholder”

Failed to import Media “blog_thumb_placeholder”

Failed to import Media “feature_image_placeholder”

However the rest are imported just fine. Just wanted to see if this is a common problem, and if you had a solution to it.

Many thanks,

Robert Wong

guuthemes

Hi rcwongtk,

Yes, images are not imported in. But you do have a folder that includes those placeholder images, so you can add them manually to the various sections.

many thanks
