A most excellent theme, AJ, I am really very impressed and am hoping to use it in my next commision. Just one quick question, is it possible to change the height of the images used in the rather beautiful slider? Thank you for your time and for a beautiful and well thought out theme.

WPExplorer

Thank you for the kind words! Hope to see you back soon as a buyer ;)

Hi AJ, when I view my site using ie8, nothing loads up—can you tell me what I’m doing wrong? http://drummerboyhosting.com

WPExplorer

Sorry you are having these issues. I tried looking in IE8 + Win8 but it loads fine for me. Have you been able to try on a different computer?

Does it seem to happen to every page or just the homepage?

Maybe comparability mode is on and causing issues?

thanks for the purchase, AJ

SHORTCODES!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok… perhaps a little bit of overstatement but another great theme AJ

JT

WPExplorer

Ha, thanks for the purchase friend! I hope yo enjoy it ;)

I’ve got some plans for those shortcodes to make them better in the next update to make things even better. So keep an eye out!

It’s great. 5 stars.

The shortcodes allow for a lot of flexibility.

The plugin installer was an nice touch as well. Please include this in future themes.

Color selection for my purposes will require a little editing but your CSS is very clean so I should be able to easily customize it. Unlimited color selection would be my feature request for the next theme.

WPExplorer

Thanks ;)

Yes the plugin installer will be included in ALL future themes!

I might through in some color pickers in the next update, we’ll see.

Thanks for being such a loyal and good customer!

Are the custom post types built into the theme or apart of a separate plugin now? I remember you saying something about moving in that direction (which I’m 100% for)!

WPExplorer

The post types are now all plugins ;) However, they will auto activate upon installation.

Love the new plugins for the custom post types! WINNING! However, I tried deactivating the portfolio plugin and it actually won’t. haha! Known issue or am I doing something wrong?

WPExplorer

Nothing you are doing wrong. It’s actually because I have it to force activate and since it force activates technically when u de-activate it it re-activates it ;)

If you edit impact -> recommend-plugins.php (you can edit away, this won’t ever affect theme functionality since it just recommends plugins to install)

You’ll see for the portfolio lines 84-92. You can set required and force_activation to false and then you can de-activate.

I’ll see about updating the docs with that info.

I had originally thought of not setting it up like this, but most buyers would be so confused if the plugins didn’t auto install and activate.

Also, does the theme support child themes?

WPExplorer

Thanks for the purchase! You’ve been a loyal customer, I appreciate it.

It should allow for child themes, if you have any issues though, please let me know so I can fix them!

Using a child theme with your themes is a must because you update them so often. Which, for the record, is a very good thing!!! I’ll let you know if I have a problem putting a child them together.

Uploaded the zip file and got this message/.

The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

Name Description Impact-v1.01 Stylesheet is missing.

WPExplorer

Sounds like you tried uploading the entire zip. This zipped folder includes documentation, sample data, licensing and the theme.

You need to extract and upload only the theme which is located inside the “Upload” folder.

Thank you for the purchase!

That was it Thanks!

New question – A lot of the sample data failed to upload.It would be a big help to have that. Suggestions?

WPExplorer

Such as?

The sample data is slimmed down (http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/impact-data/) since the demos have a lot of redundant pages for demo purposes only.

Although it could also be that some servers have a memory limit so not everything got downloaded, maybe thats the issue.

Suggestions…maybe start adding your own content? Since you need to add your own content anyway ;) Or if you are actually receiving an error it would be helpful to know the error – thanks!

Hi, I noticed that the Rev Slider comes already installed. But where do I upload the .txt files for homepage, fullwidth, boxedphotos?

WPExplorer

The .txt are provided for your convenience and they are the basic export of my demo. You don’t have to use these, you can read the documentation for the slider and just make your own.

When you create a new slider there is a link at the bottom where you can click to import them.

How do I use the google maps feature? I need to embed 5 different locations.

WPExplorer

It’s a shortcode. See here:

http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/impact/files/2012/12/gmap.png

It should insert the basic google map shortcode and parameters.

How can I pin point to a location using latitudes and longitudes?

WPExplorer

It’s based on the address. You don’t need to use latitudes and longitudes? You can adjust the zoom=”” property to zoom in and out.

If you want a super advanced Google map that doesn’t use an address but uses latitudes and longitudes there are plenty free plugins out there on WP.org for you to use.

Hey, can you give me a hand with the google maps application? I am using the Comprehensive Google Map Plugin, however when it renders some maps are grayed out. The only way to fix it is to resize the window.

I was doing some research online and there are comments that it could possibly be the theme.

I looked at the support of Comprehensive Google Map Plugin and this seems to be the solution: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/map-partially-shown Do you think you could implement it?

This is my website where the maps are: http://www.labviteri.com/contactos/

WPExplorer

I’m looking at the page but the maps look good to me, I’m not seeing any issue.

Did you get it fixed up?

Default-user
rviteri Purchased

The problem is only with google maps. I am using another provider in the meantime.

WPExplorer

It’s probably something very simple. Since this is a responsive theme images are set to max-width 100% I’m guessing you might just have to reverse that.

If you have a test page with a Google map I can look for you.

Default-user
rviteri Purchased

I have changed it to google maps. Please try looking at the page. Please try on several browsers.

WPExplorer

I think it has to do with the fact that the maps are inside the UI accordions. Since the accordion content is hidden by default it seems the map isn’t getting it’s proper size.

If try outside of the accordions they look fine?

I found this post that might be helpful for you:

Wow…great theme but sure is hard to figure out how to use.

I am struggling trying to find where to change the “copyright 2012” in the footer.

I also don’t understand how to use the FAQ, Service and Staff modules, and where do I input social media icons in the footer? The 3rd grade help version would be appreciated.

WPExplorer

Glad you like it ;)

The documentation is included with the theme and it is also live at the following URL:

http://wpexplorer.me/premium/theme-docs/impact/

1. Footer Text: This is actually manually added in footer.php so you can edit it there. It will change automatically to 2013 when the time comes if that is your main concern.

2. FAQ, Service, Staff… there isn’t anything complicated here. Literally they work like regular posts. Just add your content and you are good to go. See this section for inserting them to your post:

http://wpexplorer.me/premium/theme-docs/impact/#posttypes

3. The social icons in the footer is just a custom widget. Go to Appearance->Widgets and its called “Symple Social”. Should be very straight forward how to use.

Hope this helps ya out!

Thanks…that helped.

Also, How do I change the text in the center of the colored divider/block (your demo has “A Theme Professionally Crafted To Create An Impact”) without affecting the page name?

WPExplorer

This is the page name. The only other way to change is by editing the template file.

If you worry is that this is what shows up in your browser title, you can use your SEO plugin to override your meta title. You’ll want an SEO plugin anyway, I suggest WordPress SEO by Yoast.

All staff profiles display the sidebar regardless of the setting. Can you please advise?

Looks like I forgot to add the code for this in single-staff.php. I will push out the update first thing in the morning since I am out of the office right now.

If you contact me via my profile page I can email you the updated template file as soon as it’s ready so you don’t have to wait ;)

Thank you so much for letting me know & I apologize for the issues!

I can’t figure out what’s causing this, but there’s some conflict that’s causing the search bar on this page to not display correctly. Any thoughts?

Also, unrelated, the pagination on the blog page seems to have fallen outside the boxed area (you can see at the bottom here).

Hey man,

  • I’m not seeing the search bar issue. You mean the default theme search bar? It seems like maybe it’s disabled in the theme panel.
  • Small mistake on my part in index.php..it should look more like templates/blog.php – will update right now ;)

Thanks man!!

No, I don’t mean the default search feature (that’s disabled). There’s a plugin I’m using with a search feature and its having a conflict with the theme somehow.

I’ll figure it out!

Good luck ;)

Tip: My friend that makes Real Estate themes was saying that with 3.5 he had to change all his search functions in his themes. Maybe make sure it’s not the plugin first with 3.5.

Looks great! Is there much flexibility in rearranging the home page, for example if I wanted two rows of three blurbs each, then a call to action and then latest blog posts?

I’m even fine with editing the homepage template if it can be done.

Thanks,

Mark

WPExplorer

Actually, it’s all done via shortcodes, there really isn’t a “home page template”

The docs are online if you want to take a look – http://wpexplorer.me/premium/theme-docs/impact/

The shortcodes structure should make it super flexible!

Default-user

Perfect! It couldn’t be any more flexible!

BTW, for anyone considering this theme, if you aren’t familiar with WPExplorer’s work…it’s excellent. I have the Gamma theme, and I am amazed at the attention to detail. The support is also excellent. I’ve had a question or two here and there, and the responses are fast, helpful and friendly.

I’ll be buying this one too shortly.

Can I ask you how to change the portfolio slug name?

WPExplorer

You can have a look in the docs here: http://wpexplorer.me/premium/theme-docs/impact/#posttypefilters

So for example if you only want to change the permalink you could add this to your functions.php file:

 if ( ! function_exists( 'custom_portfolio_permalink' ) ) {
    function custom_portfolio_permalink( $args ) {
            $custom_permalink = array( 'rewrite' => array("slug" => "gallery") );
            return $custom_permalink + $args;
    }
    add_filter( 'symple_portfolio_args', 'custom_portfolio_permalink' );
}

And change it says “gallery” to whatever you want.

Make sense?

I found some bugs in your blog shortcodes. When you use them, the meta data are from the page you use that code and not from each post. This means that all posts will have the published date on the same day. At first I thought it’s a problem somewhere on my website, but then I saw the same behavior to your sample website: http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/impact-data/blog-2-column/

See all posts are from 7th December.

I need a fix for this ASAP. Thanks!

WPExplorer

Sorry about this. It was an honest mistake ;( Since all my posts for the demo I published the same day I didn’t catch the error.

So the fix would be in functions/shortcodes/blog-shortcode.php line 191 looks like this:

$output .= '<div class="recent-posts-entry-meta">'. get_the_date() .'</div>';

it should look like this:

$output .= '<div class="recent-posts-entry-meta">'. get_the_time('F j, Y', $postid) .'</div>';

I’ll push out the update ASAP.

Thanks for the purchase and for letting me know of the issue!

Your theme looks great but can i get a refund? I cant launch wordpress and I cant upload the theme.

Thanks

WPExplorer

You can contact ThemeForest support but I can’t personally give you a refund. However, they only give refunds if the theme isn’t working as shown in the demo, which it should. Since it’s a digital product, refunds are given in rare cases because it would be easy for anyone to just get all their products for free by simply saying requesting a refund ;)

If you wish to use the theme and are having issues you can open a ticket at wpthemehelp.com and I would be glad to help you out. Also if the issue is with installing the theme, please consult with the documentation.

Hi, quick question…I’m not sure if it’s something I did but the contact form on the contact page is not showing up. This code is instead displayed on my page:

I would like it to look like the sample page in the theme…please help.

It should be mentioned in the Docs

Basically we use the Contact Form 7 plugin for our demo, the code you see is taken from the export but won’t show anything since you will need to install the plugin and create your form.

That said, there are also many other plugins you can use if you don’t like that one.

Hi AJ,

I’m having hard time re-sizing pictures to fit nicely in my slider. I read through the Docs and it mentions some standard default sizes for pictures, which is good, but regardless of the scaling or cropping I do in my image library, the pictures never get adjusted in the slider. Do you know what I’m doing wrong and is there a standard default size of picture that will work with the slider every time?

Thanks for your help!

WPExplorer

Hey Phil,

Really you should crop your images prior to uploading them to ensure best quality and if you are selecting the “full” image size for use in the slider it won’t really matter the adjustments you made anyway.

in terms of the image size though, it really depends on your slider height since this can be changed via the settings.

If you are trying to insert full-width images, make sure they are 1000px wide since that is the width of the slider area.

Hope some of that helps!

OK, on to bigger and better problems….I’m trying to change the font for the layers on the slider. I’ve turned on the load Google fonts button and added the font style I want in the box but nothing happens. Then I started looking around and other blogs say that I have to add the font name in the CSS. How and where do I do that?

Thanks AJ!

Phil

WPExplorer

Hey Phil,

The Google Font should load, but you need to tell the slider to use it. When editing a slide there is a button called “Edit CSS”. This is where you need to define your font.

http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/impact/files/2013/01/google-font-slider.png

That should help!

Of course, and this is my opinion, it’s probably easiest to just make the exact text you want in Photoshop using custom fonts then insert them as images. You’ll be loading less code on your site and getting the exact look you want ;)

Thanks for the info….I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but it’s still not working.

This is the code I’m inputting into the CSS:

font-family: ‘Metrophobic’, sans-serif;

And this is the code I am using in the Google font bar in the slider “edit slider” page:

‘Metrophobic’, sans-serif; 400,700

Please help…

WPExplorer

Metrophobic only has one styling…

IN the Google font input in the slider edit page simply insert Metrophobic nothing else.

I just tested locally and that worked for me.

WPExplorer

Edit: I just tested using the @import in the edit css screen and that seemed to work well for loading the font in the dashboard preview as well!
