I have a problem on the installing the theme:

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Any ideas? Thanks

WPExplorer

Glad you got it working ;) Thanks for the purchase!

When I add links to a menu, can I force them to open in a new tab as opposed to refreshing the page?

WPExplorer

There is a checkbox that reads “Open link in a new window/tab” right under the menu item label.

steveisaacs

I don’t seem to have that option.

For clarification, I’m in: Appearance/Menus/Menu Structure and I’m editing my “Main Menu.” I’m adding a Link from the left hand menu (with URL and Link Text) and it adds it to the Menu. No option for “Open link in a new window/tab.”

Only options are for adding new top-level pages, and Theme locations.

WPExplorer

Check your screen options to make sure its enabled(link target). Its on the top right of the menu dashboard.

steveisaacs

Great! There it is :)

If I look at the page in Safari on Mac (http://wpexplorer-demos.com/goodinc/) it looks like the menu + search text shifts between bold/non bold every time the scroller moves?

WPExplorer

There does seem to be a bug in Safari…I’ll have to investigate this further, but I’m not sure its fixable. I think its an actual issue with the browser.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply – if you can fix it you have another buyer :-)

WPExplorer

Unfortunately I can not fix Safari ;(

I’ll look into maybe a “hack” to make it less visible. But I can’t update the actual browser!

Hi

i show the feeds of wordpress on my other website. where i show only 2 latest posts. I need to add “read more” link at the end of every post (feeds on the website), I understand this is theme specific. can you please guide me how to go about. when I use built in thmes (2012 etc) it show the link as “continue reading”. Thanks

WPExplorer

Hi there,

You will have to edit the content.php and content-[format].php files. In each (for the formats that have excerpts) you will find this:

<?php wpex_excerpt( wpex_get_data( 'excerpt_width', '60' ) ); ?>

to enable a read more, change to this:

<?php wpex_excerpt( wpex_get_data( 'excerpt_width', '60' ), true ); ?>

Can I speed up my site? It loads painfully slow, 10-14 seconds (on WiFi!) I only have a few plugins, mainly Jetpack, Facebook like and a few others. Nothing crazy, it would seem. I tested WP Super Cache but deactivated it, as it seemed to confuse refreshing and seeing site changes. Will reactivate later.

I’m on a Media Temple grid server, and have used them forever, but don’t remember any of my sites loading this slow.

Do you have any fixes or advice?

WPExplorer

Have you checked to see what might be causing things to slow down? There any many online tools out there to do this.

On my host ( WPEngine my live demo is loading in under 3 seconds. The theme should be pretty well optimized already.

Screenshot: http://cl.ly/image/0T2q2r3B2C3Y

If you are using the retina support, maybe disabling will help out.

steveisaacs

Just ran some online speed tools. Pingdom said: http://cl.ly/image/0a2h1x2d1P1k 38 second load time and a 2.9 meg load? Seems bonkers.

Haven’t had retina on.

steveisaacs

Update – I turned off my Instagram widget and turned on WP Super Cache plug-in and got the load WAY down: http://cl.ly/image/2h2U1M3K2p2N

Is there a caching plugin that you recommend?

WPExplorer

When I visit your site it is taking me barely 2 seconds to load on my internet.

steveisaacs

Yeah, this is odd. It’s been slow for the last couple weeks, but now it’s fairly snappy (3-5 secs load for me). AND WP Super Cache is off right now. I didn’t really do any other changes.

1) While we’re on the subject, do you recommend any particular caching plugin? I have WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache installed (neither is active ATM).

and

2) I have the WORST luck with clearing caches and seeing up to date changes. I’m using the “http://sweetrideusa.com/test/?clear-cache” link, but my results are pretty weak. I clear the cache as well via browser preferences, but as I test with Safari and Chrome simultaneously, changes are never “accurate” or even similar across the 2 browsers. Wonder what I can do to DEFINITIVELY clear the browser so I see the latest changes to posts/widgets/plugins.

Thank You!!!

WPExplorer

It could be your server. A couple years ago I was on the MediaTemple grid and I didn’t have very steady results. I think the main reason is because of the shared MySQL. I upgraded for $20/month for the dedicated MySQL and that seemed to help alot. Also Media Temple offers CloudFlare for free. I would highly recommend using CloudFlare as opposed to W3C, I personally had much better results with CloudFlare. I currently own both a Media Temple dedicated server and premium WPEngine accounts ;)

Regarding clearing the cache…?clear-cache is only for the queries. So for example if you change the slider category you would use that. It doesn’t do anything else. If you are having issues clearing cache for posts/widgets/plugins its probably due to the caching plugin – even after you de-activate it you still have to clear the locally stored data.

Also, if you are using CloudFlare you should be setting CloudFlare in development mode while working.

I personally use chrome and I use the following for clearing browser cache while I work – https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cache-killer/jpfbieopdmepaolggioebjmedmclkbap?hl=en

Hope some of that helps!

how do I remove the search box?

WPExplorer

There isn’t a built-in option for this but you can hide it with CSS:

#header-search { display: none; }

Gallery question (and THANKS for the great support)

Your Goodinc gallery is sweet already. For sure. BUT I’m wanting to test a couple more out (for larger galleries and easy scanning). For instance, the Jetpack tiled gallery. I install and activate (and hit the checkbox for “tiled galleries”) but when viewing a gallery post, the goodinc gallery still shows. Are we able to use other gallery plugins with this theme, is there some jedi trick to allow this?

Also I want to give you 5 stars cause you are KILLING IT with support, but when I click on the stars and “more info” I don’t see a path for rating…?

WPExplorer

This theme doesn’t have a custom gallery output built-in…Are you sure you don’t mean the light-box (the popup)?

To rate you would do it in your “Downloads” next to the purchased item – thanks!

steveisaacs

No didn’t mean the light box specifically (you mean the full screen when an image is clicked on?) I was curious if we had the option to experiment with other image gallery plugins in this theme.

WPExplorer

Of course you can. I’m not sure which built-in gallery you are referring to then, because the WordPress gallery doesn’t have a custom output in this theme. For the gallery post format, its completely separate (loops through attachments and displays a slider in the template – nothing to do with the WP gallery).

steveisaacs

Ah, think I get it now – when you attach images, they slideshow in the featured images area, but when you add media > create gallery THEN you have access to whatever galleries you have installed. I hadn’t seen the actual galleries yet. Thanks.

WPExplorer

Correct ;)

In the next update I will be changing it up so you can select the specific images you want for the gallery and move them around. So it’s not attachment based.

steveisaacs

Since we’re on the topic – One question about the theme – when I create a gallery, and add a featured image – the FI doesn’t show up in the post excerpt form, only in the recent articles slider etc. Why?

WPExplorer

I’m not quite sure what you mean. The code for the Gallery post format entry is pretty much the same as it is for the post itself. You shouldn’t even be able to set a featured image, because its attachment based.

if you want to contact me via my profile page I can hook you up with the update for the new gallery img management. It’s not done yet but its pretty quick. Looks like this: http://cl.ly/image/3j220g133n29

Hi, This is my first premium theme. I bought it and it’s great! I have just one question for you. Can i set somewhere default post layout? I have many posts and I would like to set them all to full width. Can I do this in bulk? Or change code somewhere?

WPExplorer

Hi there,

If you want all your posts full-width you would simply need to alter some code. Open the file in your theme at functions/layout-styles.php and locate line 24:

$post_layout = get_post_meta ( $post->ID, 'wpex_post_layout', true );

Change it to:

$post_layout = 'Full Width';

Google Adsense and/or Yahoo Media advertisements do not display to GoodInc. theme. Are there any known issues with this theme blocking Ad code. My code is correct because I have the same code on several other blogs I own. You can view the blog that the ad code is not working at www.uberapparatus.com

WPExplorer

There shouldn’t be an issue with ads on the theme. But I do see a server related error on your site that might be causing the issue:

http://cl.ly/image/2507453H1O2U

Are you sure that ads haven’t been disabled for your domain?

Can you try putting your ad into a text widget instead of using the plugin currently in use (remove it to make sure it isn’t causing issues then try).

By the way, I love the edits you’ve made, this looks great!

Default-user

It looks like it was my error, sorry for the trouble, thank you for your help. Great Theme by the way, and glad you like our modified GoodInc Uberfied design.

WPExplorer

Glad you figured it out! And yes I do really like the colors and fonts you are using, kudos!

I would like each blog post my had a custom background, how do this?

This would be plugin territory.

Hello! We are interested in purchasing this theme, but would like to confirm that there are no known issues with the plugins to transfer blog content and photos easily over from blogger? We know how this is done already – just want to make sure you don’t know of any conflicts with your template.

Thanks!

WPExplorer

Hi there,

I am not aware of any issues. The only problem some people have (not with this theme, but in general) when moving from blogger is that featured images don’t get set automatically.

If you have a lot of posts and want to auto set featured images I would recommend this plugin – http://wordpress.org/plugins/auto-post-thumbnail/

Default-user

Thank you! We have purchased the theme. It’s under my clients account, evergrowingfarm.com. I am wondering if there is an online link to go to for documentation on each feature, etc? I can’t seem to easily find it here going through the comments or in the zip files that were downloaded. Thank you!

WPExplorer

The documentation is included in the purchased zip inside the folder called “Documentation”. Make sure you are downloading the correct file otherwise you wont find it.

I added it online for you as well though: http://www.wpexplorer.org/online-docs/goodinc/

If you want support though, please comment with the account used to make the purchase. It’s the only way I know you have purchased the theme legally, thanks!

Default-user

Thank you so much! I will post from the clients account from now on, if I need further assistance – user name is BeeGirl76 if you’d like to verify now. :) I appreciate your help so far!

WPExplorer

Unfortunately the reason I ask is because as a seller there is no way for me to verify, besides the ribbon in the comment.

I really appreciate it, thanks!

after the last update the theme does not accept any changes in values like colors, with or wthout pin mark menu etc… what do I do?

WPExplorer

Hi there,

I’m not sure what you mean by ” does not accept any changes in values”. Are you having issues with the theme panel or with changing the CSS on your site?

The last update did not alter either of these.

Can you please be a bit more specific? Thanks!

Default-user

problems with the theme panel

WPExplorer

The last update didn’t even touch the theme panel, so the update itself shouldn’t have caused that.

- Does clearing your browser cache help?
- Have you installed any new plugins recently that might have broken it?
- Are you able to check with firebug or chrome developer tools to see if there is any error in the js console?

If you want me to look send me a message via my profile page.

Quick Question

When using the Insert More Tag the post ends up writing a;

10

where the insert more is. Any idea why that might be?

WPExplorer

It shows a “10” ? I tried on my local install and could not re-create it, do you have url I can look at?

Default-user

Sorry for the delayed response. I did some more testing but no avail im still getting a number where the More tab should be. Currently its displaying it as 41.

The website is iLikeCorgis.com

WPExplorer

If you want to use the more tag, be sure to disable the auto excerpts – http://cl.ly/image/400i123n1h1D

Hi. This theme is great I like it, but I found some problems while setting up the site as originally planned, so I need to get solutions. The problems are:
1) How to set up the color blinking elements like tags and overlay with plus in carouselle, from orange to some other color, because it does not work with any other color?
2) After the update from 1.1.2 to 1.2 styling options refuse to work at all.
3) How do I set up text comment in the bottom of slides in the main slider, like in default theme like this text “This Bold Theme Was Designed To Be Full Of Fantastic Features”, how do I do that?
4) Which table from sql database contains settings options for design and style, as I stumbled into a problem after update that some old parameters might conflict with new, probably why styling options refuse to work?

That’s about it that I can remember right now, my english is not very good, hope you understand problems I described.

WPExplorer

1. The carousel tags can’t be changed via the theme options panel because they are images. You’ll need to edit the image found in your theme’s images folder.

2. My apologies it seems when I updated I accidentally removed a line in functions.php while adding a new one. I will update it now. You can do so yourself add the following at the end of functions.php

require_once( get_template_directory() .'/functions/home-menu-link.php' );

3. That is the “caption” for the image you choose for the featured image.

4. As i mentioned in #3 the issue was I simply removed the function that was calling functions/custom-css.php – thats causing the problem.

Thanks for telling me about the bugs, will submit the fix now. AJ

Default-user

Thank you for reply. So about 1st question, I can change images to other color no problem, but just to make one thing clear, why after editing colors in theme options the color-changing animation (dark-gray to orange) doesn’t work anymore? Curious why that happens.

WPExplorer

I do that via CSS so that it doesn’t look bad. For example if someone changes the colors to purple, the orange won’t look good. It’s impossible to alter the image color “on the fly” so the next best thing is to disable the orange hover.

Default-user

Ok I got it, but the problem that I use (btw) purple as main color but I also need to have the animation, what parameter in CSS I need to disable or change to have animation working but with custom color? Thank you for fast answers!

WPExplorer

Open functions/custom-css.php and delete line 29:

#posts-carousel-wrap .bx-wrapper li:hover .overlay-plus { background: url("'. get_template_directory_uri().'/images/carousel-overlay.png") 0 0 no-repeat; }';

That’s the easiest way if you don’t know CSS.

Default-user

Thank you very match!

I’ve got a question regarding this theme before buying.

Can the triangular ( + ) icons in the corner of post images be changed? I like the function would would like to create something a bit softer, like a circle with a ( + ) in it.

Great looking theme. Thanks

WPExplorer

Well, technically anything can be changed, it just depends on your level of expertise.

The + are images so you would want to tweak these images via photoshop or another image editing tool. You would find all the theme design images inside the theme’s images folder.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. I figured it would be possible, I just wasn’t sure how they were implemented into the code. My understanding of CSS and html is above basic knowledge, I’m just not proficient enough to build things from scratch.

I’ve got my Wordpress setup on my local machine using WAMP. For some reason, none of my posts are showing up in the homepage slider or the carousel – nothing at all is showing up. Any ideas? I tried clearing the cache but no joy . . .

WPExplorer

Did you select the categories in the theme option panel for these?

http://www.wpexplorer.org/online-docs/goodinc/#homepage
Default-user

I checked and double checked, the categories have been selected for both slider and carousel.

Default-user

I also looked in the source and there’s no flexslider area being created.

Default-user

Sorry for the barrage of comments! I just tried taking the code for the slider in the demo and putting it into the “Slider Alternate” area. The area for the slider shows up but all I get is the loading gif animation.

WPExplorer

After choosing the slider categories you should clear the query cache like this – your-site.com/?clear-cache – did you do this?

Also make sure your posts have featured images.

I’m not sure what code you are talking about for the “Slider Alternative”. This is where you would enter a slider shortcode for example.

If you can set it up live that would be very helpful.

Great theme. Is it possible to have the featured images (or gallery images for that matter as well) be shown in full as whatever size they are rather than being cropped to roughly 600×400 (before having to click on them to view full image)?

Also, curious as to how the related posts are calculated. I think they’re beautiful but their relatability to current post content is a bit … off :) Thanks!

WPExplorer

Yes, its very easy to change the image sizes ;)

1. open functions/default-image-sizes.php 2. locate line 35 that starts with ”//blog posts” – this section controls the image sizes, it should be pretty intuitive how it works. So for example to remove the height cropping you would edit line 47: return ‘320’; to read – return ‘9999’; and then edit line 54 so instead of true it says “false” (false means no crop). Hope that makes sense!

For the related items, its based on the first category the item is posted in. So for example if you have a post in the category “video” it will show more posts from the category “video”.

Default-user

Perfect! Thanks. Also, is the theme buddypress friendly?

WPExplorer

I have not tested the theme with buddyPress.

Default-user

Follow up, is it possible to get this full sized feature image effect on the homepage blog roll too? The edits I made only change appearance in single post view. Thanks!

WPExplorer

It’s not going to be possible because the sidebar is in the way. It would be impossible to have some full-width and some non-full-width posts on the homepage.

Now if you want to remove the sidebar on the homepage and have only full-width posts it wouldn’t be a hard edit.

Default-user

I was actually just hoping to have the height NOT be cropped out. The width on homepage post is fine with me.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Hello! I can not get the sliders to show up on the homepage. I have followed all the steps in the documentation, however there is not an option to set the height. I’m wondering if this has something to do with it? Or if I’m missing something else? Thank you so much!

WPExplorer

Hi,

1. Do your posts have featured images. You need the featured image so that there is something to show in the slider/carousel.

2. Have you tried clearing the homepage query cache? – yoursite.com/?clear-cache

3. If you still can’t get it to work, you can send me a private message via my profile page so I can take a look for you.

Thanks for last tip! Any chance for implement by you slabtext to theme? It looks much more better with one line of headers and full titles in slides.

WPExplorer

Hi,

Not quite sure what you mean. Are you talking about using a Slab style font?

Default-user
http://freqdec.github.io/slabText/

It’s just suggestion, I implemented it by myself and look great with this theme. I did not seen any theme with this here and this theme would look even more special :)

WPExplorer

Ah, gotcha. Yes I’ve seen a few themes using it. If you don’t mind sharing the URL I’d like to see how you’ve implemented it.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 0-1 years

Hello,

How do you make the slider the full size of the page on the homepage. Mine is in two columns. Also how do you get the posts to show up underneath the slider like on your page? I am having issues with paged post pagination as well. When I do a page break everything under the page break just disappears instead of moving to the next page.

WPExplorer

I’m not sure what you mean about your slider being in “two columns”. Are you able to show the URL? Sounds a conflict on your setup which I can’t troubleshoot without looking.

Your blog posts should display automatically. If you don’t see them go to Settings->Reading and make sure you don’t have your homepage set as a static pag.

Not sure what you mean about the page break, please share the URL. Paginated posts should work just fine – http://wpexplorer-demos.com/goodinc/checkout-this-great-fashion/

Sorry for the delayed response!
