Hello, I am interested in purchasing this template but want to confirm that you can alter the image filters. While we love the black and white we are going to need to display our images in color.

Thanks, A

Hi ali780,

The black and white images are just for demo purposes (they are not actual filters), so yes you can just pop in color images as you usually would.

Many thanks

Hey there,

Great theme! I purchased it a while ago and love it. My only problem is getting navigation to show on mobile devices. Is there something specific that needs to be done to ensure that the navigation menu will show on cell phones? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, I want to by this template, but i need all demo content instaled too, it is possible? Thanks Robson

guuthemes

You won’t be getting the images and sliders as the images are bought and licensed specifically for our demo and the sliders cannot be included within demo content xml technically.

Other than that you’ll get a full set up.

Hi, beutiful themes you guys make. My question is, are all your wp themes translation ready or only when it specifically states so ? as in this theme for example.

guuthemes

Hi bpersson,

All of our themes are translation ready.

Many thanks

Hi, I’m really liking this theme. My concern is a small one, but the header on top is more centered and larger than that found in your demo. Is there any easy way to adjust it’s weight and alignment?

Hi

I bought this theme and then realized the stylesheet is missing. Is this normal? I sent a private message enquiry but received no response.

Hi there!

Freaking love this theme! Quick question. When I create a “gallery” in one of my blog posts, the images don’t technically open up to a bigger image when clicked on, they just stay put in the square format. Is there a way to fix this? I got it to work once, but I am not sure how I did that. Any suggestions would be awesome!

Thanks Tara

There is something wrong with the theme. When I try to install the package file through the WP theme installer, I get an error. When I manually upload the theme folder, it seems the CSS file is missing. The theme doesn’t look like anything in the preview. I installed this on a clean WP3.6 install and tried several times.

Could it be that this is an issue with WP 3.6? Other themes seem to get broken as well after this version.

Hi,

Before buying this theme i’ve questions : is it possible to put a vimeos video in the slideshow ? And can we change the width/height of services icons ? And can I put those i’ve created instead of ?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my english :)

guuthemes

Hi,

you cannot put a video in, you can change the icons and you can replace them if you know your way around code :)

Hi, nice theme you’ve developed. I consider buying, though wonder what is the suggested size for and what are the restrictions of the nominated space for a logo?

(bought other WP theme before where our logo did not fit in)

guuthemes

Hey,

with a little css tweaking you could fit just about any size into the theme. So feel free to visit us over at guuthemes.com in case you should need help after purchasing :)

Hello,

I want to change the name “Navigate ..” by menu (mobile template design), I can not find where to change the word.

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

Thank you for your return

Hi Florian,

You need to edit custom.js found in the /js folder. There you will see the code for mobile menu, and the text you need to change.

Many thanks

Hello,

This is perfect, thank you for your response, the theme of the site is really great, shortcodes, and the design is great …. thank you to you

Hello, WordPress 3.6.1 was released. Is it ok to update to this version? I want to make sure so that we don’t start getting any glitches.

guuthemes

Hi Denisse,

I have tested on my local copy of Golden with 3.6.1 and all seems ok.

As always, make a backup of your theme folder, and your database before any WP updates, just to be safe ;)

thanks

Guys, I have a couple pre-purchase questions:

1. I purchased a theme once that looked great but the home page was created solely by selections made in the theme admin page. It made creating the home page easy but limited the content to the exact modules in the theme admin. I just want to make sure that isn’t how your theme home page is generated. Ideally there would be no restrictions to home page content, and also nothing that prevents demo home page content from being created on pages other than home page.

2. On an individual blog post with more than one photo can I use the theme project gallery slider instead of the pop-up method shown on the demo?

3. I noticed that the text on each page header photo uses the

while the actual page/post title is

. For SEO purposes I’d rather reverse this. Any reason this can’t be easily done?

Thanks in advance!

Default-user

Sorry, question 3 got formatted funny because I mentioned h1 as a tag. Put a different way I’d prefer to have the h1 as the page/post title and rename the current h1 in the page/post header image. Any reason this can’t be easily done.

guuthemes

Hi,

in general you can modify anything in the theme if you got the skills or a developer on your hands to help you with it.

1 The layout of the theme is definitely restricted to the sections you see there, but that’s because it’s a one page theme which generally don’t allow too much freedom in content creation.

Question 2 and 3 can be modified by modifying the theme code.

All the best, Mel

Default-user

Ok thanks. But this information is critical so if you could say exactly how the home page is generated that would be great. For example, is each section of the home page added or subtracted by a selection in the theme admin, or could I also start with a normal wp blank page and add the sections I want? For example a wp page with the theme header followed by text, followed by one of the sections on your home demo. Can this be done – are there shortcodes for the home page sections perhaps.

Also, while it looks like your other themes are one page, Golden looks to me like it is not a single page theme in contrast to your reply???

thanks again!!!

guuthemes

Hi, you can add and remove each section as you wish. They are not shortcodes.

Sorry for the confusion, I was talking about the looks of the homepage, it’s a one page look with several sections that create one long page. Those sections can be added and removed individually according to your liking.

Hi I uploaded my logo but it shrinks the logo. Where can I change the header or the padding size so that my logo appears in it’s original size? I tried going to your forum but it shows closed.

Good morning!

Can you tell me how I can hide the home page slider altogether on mobile?

Thanks!

guuthemes

Hi digitalworxs,

You would need to set a media query for .flexslider in style.css, and add – display: none to it. Take a look at the bottom of style.css on how media queries are used.

Many thanks

Hi guys,

Before I purchase this theme I would like to know weather do I have to make the photos black and white or there is a script that changes them into this effect? Also the headings are nice are are they done with CSS?

Thanks

guuthemes

Hi Digitalmind13,

You would have to make the images black & white yourself. There are plenty of free image editors out there that can help you do this.

Yes the headings are done with simple CSS.

Many thanks

Digitalmind13

I see no prob, I like your theme.

Thanks

Digitalmind13

Guys what font is that G in the logo, or what font would you suggest for making a logo? Thanks!

guuthemes

I think its Pacifico, from what I remember?? Its a free Google Web Font.

thanks

Digitalmind13

Thanks too !

Hello. It seems that only a percentage of the Font Awesome Icons are working. A number of theme won’t appear onsite. Ideas?

guuthemes

Hi digitalworxs,

Golden does come packaged with a slightly older version of FA. Which version of FA are you using?

Many thanks

Default-user

It appears that the css doesn’t list them all, so I probably just need access to the newest version?

Default-user

I think I’m on 3.0

Default-user

FA’s site says I can add the font to my site by putting this code into the HEAD of my HTML. <link href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.css" rel="stylesheet"> Will that fix the issue?

Default-user

I appreciate your help. I need to take this site live by Monday. Is there a way I can update the FA version?

Default-user

Not trying to be impatient, but hoping for a solution soon. Thank You!

guuthemes

Hi, sorry to hear that you’re in a hurry, but can you please post to the correct support system so we can help?

Can anyone tell me how I can access the complete Font Awesome icons using this theme? Support team can’t help.

guuthemes

Hi digitalworxs,

Mel has been assisting you on the forums.

Golden currently uses an older version of FA. I will look at making an update to this in the new year.

In the meantime, if you were a little comfortable with code, you could look at swapping out the old FA files with the latest ones from the FA website.

They have also changed their naming conventions, so where you once had, for example -

<i class="icon-star" />

this would now be named as -

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

There would be a few files (ie; theme-functions.php) where you would need to make adjustments also.

Many thanks
