Is there a way to include a specific blog category (with thumbnails and part of the whole article) into the homepage with a shortcode?

I hope you understand what I want to achieve?

SaurabhSharma

Hello Dave,

Currently, the theme doesn’t have short code for generating posts. But you can use one of the available portfolio templates on Home page. The posts gallery will appear after all the content you have on Home page. This won’t be similar to a thumbnail + excerpt, but will be a posts gallery. You can also use a blog template.

If you wish to show content + blog template, kindly drop me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]. I will enable content inside blog template.

The main slider on the homepage of a site we are working on only supports three slides for some reason. On your demo site you have four. Whenever we create a new post, select “featured” and add the image url, it adds the new slide/post to the homepage slider, but removes the fourth one. At any given time we can only have 3 slides. How do we fix this?

SaurabhSharma

Hello RegQ,

Open / edit the page on which you are showing Slider. Next, scroll down to page options panel > Featured Area Options > Number of Slides. By default, this field has value 3. You can change this to any other number and update the page. That will increase number of slides.

Thank you so much for your super fast response. That fixed it! I should have known to do that, as I’m sure it’s in the documentation. Thanks again.

SaurabhSharma

Hello RegQ,

No problem. I’m glad you got it working. It’s in the documentation too.

Hi, Saurab!!

I have a question. See the menu widget I used on this page?

http://emrosewebproduction.com/website-design/

I want to change the colors of the backgrounds, text, etc. Where is the CSS code for secondary menus? Thanks SO much!

SaurabhSharma

Hello maryvogt,

Sidebar menus and lists have a common CSS . Inside style.css file, line no. 268:

.sidebar ul { ... }

If you wish to target only the menu widget, you can make use of it’s class or ID name (by checking the source code). This can be done by adding following rules at the end of style.css file:

.widgetwrap ul.menu { background:#your_color }
.widgetwrap ul.menu li { ... }
.widgetwrap ul.menu li a { ... }
.widgetwrap ul.menu li a:hover { ... }

This is just an example. You can target any widget from it’s class or ID name and add CSS for it.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I am confused. when I alter that code, it doesn’t change this sidebar widget:

http://emrosewebproduction.com/about/

I see there should be an arrow graphic there as well, but that doesn’t show up.

SaurabhSharma

Hello maryvogt,

I can see the changed styles. The rounded buttons with pink gradient. May be you are still seeing old ones due to browser cache. You can check again by clearing the cache. I hope that will work.

I would also like to do what davekembe wanted with showing portfolios on the home page. Can you help me with that also? Thanks and sorry for all the questions.

SaurabhSharma

Hello again,

Portfolio items can be shown on Home page using any of the available Portfolio Templates. You just need to provide category IDs inside page options panel and choose a portfolio template. A gallery of posts will be shown just below your Home page content.

Hello Saurabh,

we’ve tried to integrate a slider image on the home page as a page slider. The image has the size of 930×360 pixels. We’ve uploaded it on the media library and integrated it, like described in your docu. However on the home page the image gets displayed as a stretched image and the right is cropped. We thought, if we create a image with the recommend width of 930 px, than it will get displayed as slider with the correct size. How can we achieve that? We found in page_slider_cycle.php that the timthumb.php script tries to display the image with a width of 990 px. Why is that?

Best regards,

Christian

SaurabhSharma

Hello Christian,

My apologies for this issue. You are right, it should be 930. Inside page_slider_cycle.php and page_slider_nivo.php, the w=990 should be changed to w=930. If you can edit this file, the code resides at line no. 27.

Or you can drop me an email at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send the corrected file.

Hello and thank you for such a great theme. I have a question for you:

How can I slow down the slider a bit?

SaurabhSharma

Hello RegQ,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

If using Nivo Slider, you can modify Slider speed inside indus/js/nivo_init.js file, line no. 11 and 12:

animSpeed:400, // Slide transition speed
pauseTime:3000, // How long each slide will show

If using Cycle Slider, you can modify speed inside indus/js/custom.js file, line no. 190 and 191:

speed: 400,
timeout: 4000,

The speed values are in milliseconds. For example, 4000 means 4 sec. So you can change that accordingly.

Hello again,

Again, you have been so great with your customer service with our previous questions and we thank you so much for that. Although we have followed the proper specifications for both the portfolio and the slider (i.e. making posts, setting the image URL assigning the correct category, assigning the proper category to the slider or portfolio page, checking the Tim Thumb script settings, etc…)

Unfortunately, it is showing up the outlines for the images for the slider and portfolio, however, the images themselves are not showing. The site knows something is supposed to be there, but can’t pull it up. Can you help us with this issue please.

SaurabhSharma

Hello RegQ,

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.

Kindly send me your site URL , or particular page link on which the images are shown. I can only tell by looking at the source code. It could be due to timthumb permissions. I will check and let you know.

Edit: You can post URL here or send me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com

Hi Saurabh,

we are still using Version 1.3 of the indus wordpress theme.

We’ve downloaded your latest version 1.5. It seems that we only need to update files: twitter_widget.php and flickr_widget.php.

However, can you tell us which files have been updated in Version 1.4?

We don’t want to update all of the files in the indus folder, as we made some custom changes to some of the files.

Thanks, Christian

SaurabhSharma

Hello Christian,

In version 1.4, timthumb.php was updated, and WP background feature was updated inside functions.php file to support WP 3.4. You can download latest version and update twitter_widget.php and flickr_widget.php file. Also update scripts/timthumb.php with the latest one.

For WP background feature, open functions.php and look for line no. 30:

add_custom_background();

Change this to:

add_theme_support( 'custom-background', array(
    'default-color' => '',
    'default-image' => ''
) );

Besides these, no changes were made in 1.4.

Hi

I’ve been using this theme for a while and want to change the blog to show summary only as in the demo: http://labs.saurabh-sharma.net/themes/indus/wp/?page_id=108

Despite doing the following.. 1. Settings > Reading – changing to summary 2. The ‘Blog Page’ template being used for the page

The site still shows full posts: http://bristolornithologicalclub.co.uk/latest/

Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello Paul,

The blog posts are converted into excerpt using the <!--more--> quick tag. Insert this tag inside the post content and update the post. It will show a read more button.

Hi, I have question about the Slider, where can i adjust the speed of the slider? we are running the nivo slider! best regards

ps: great template ;)

SaurabhSharma

Hello SilverCell,

Slider speed can be set inside indus/js/nivo_init.js file:

animSpeed:400, // Slide transition speed
pauseTime:3000, // How long each slide will show

These values are in milliseconds. You can change them as required.

Hi Saurabh,

First off I just want thank you for the theme, its absolutely brilliant.

Now, I Just wanted to know if the following was possible and how I would go about doing it; Currently I have the page slider cycle on my home page linking to 7 pages. What I would like is to have the another slider on a separate page linking to the the other 7 pages but with different images.

Thanks for you help.

SaurabhSharma

Hello benjyz,

I think that would not be possible. Since those pages already have faetured image URLs, it will show same images if used again. If you need to show different images, it will be required to create 7 new pages.

Regarding WPML, the theme will support translation of core file strings. But for callout text, it will be required to create a language configuration file. Contents of this wpml-config.xml file may look like:

<wpml-config>
    <admin-texts>
        <key name="ind_callout_text" />
    </admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

Where ind_callout_text is the variable name of callout text. I hope this will work.

Default-user

Hi Saurabh,

Thanks, I figured it wouldn’t be possible but just wanted to be sure. Is there any third-party sliders you could recommend which I could implement to achieve this?

Thanks for the WPML advice and all of the help.

SaurabhSharma

Hello benjyz,

You can use any third party slider from WordPress free plugins or premium plugins on CodeCanyon. Most of these sliders have built in slider manager which allows uploading images and linking to custom pages. You can try Revolution slider or layered slider from codecanyon.net

If you use any slider plugin, it will be required to insert the plugin short code inside page content.

Good Afternoon

I would like to add another widget column at the page bottom to balance the spacing. How would I do that? Also, I just upgraded the template to version 1.5 and the content area color disappeared. Would you please tell me how to get to that?

Good Afternoon! I was wondering if there is anyway that I can change the images of social networks used by the widget Indus Social Icons.

Thanks for your help

Regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello NaturetrustNB,

Images for social icons are located as indus/images/social_sprite_16.png and social_sprite_32.png. Depending upon which icon size you are using, you can edit appropriate file. The CSS rules for these images are located inside style.css file, at around line no. 462 with the label as “Social Networking Icons”.

Regards

I received a wordpress, with your theme where change the slider images? I do not find the location.

SaurabhSharma

Hello danielvalle,

Slider images can be configured inside Post Options Panel. Open / edit each post which is shown in slider. There is an option for providing slide image URL. Provide the image URL and save/update post. You can find more details inside the documentation file of your main download.

I could help. Thank you. Javier Soler.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Javier,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Kindly open / edit your page and check the following settings inside Page Options > Featured Area Options:

The “What to show inside Featured Area” should be “custom_embed”. Next, inside “Custom image or flash embed code”, place your Flash file published code. Make sure the URL of .swf file is full URL pointing to the file as uploaded in media library. If all these settings are correct and it still doesn’t work, kindly send me your WP login and URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com, mentioning the page name.

I have a page with a long list of items and descriptions. I am normally able to create sub navigation with jump / anchor links that go right to the link on wordpress themes except this one. On this theme I can’t seem to make the jump link go far enough down the page.

Let me know if you have any thoughts.

Hello J,

Kindly send me URL of the page on which you are using the links. I will check the code.
