Another question aswell. Going great with this theme. In boxed version i have my background on each side, but I would also like the background to show on top of the website somewhat aswell. Id like to lower the website some, if that makes sense :P Anyway to make the boxed version show parts of the background at the top aswell?

minti
minti Author

Hey there, that would just be #boxed-layout{ margin: 40px auto; } in the Custom CSS field (Theme Options Panel). That should do the trick.

As I said in the other comment, it would be nice to discuss those detailed questions in the forums, as there is much more room to paste snippets & stuff :-) ... and of course it keeps this section clean for pre-sales questions

Hello! can I change preheader button position? ( ”+” in upper-right side). I like use Page Peel plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/page-peel/screenshots/) and this only one position.

Hey Alibb, the infobar (or ‘attention grabber bar’) can be turned off completely in the Theme Options, so yes this plugin should be no problem :-)

Hey, Are the slide pictures (men’s heads) are included in the Theme?

minti
minti Author

Hey there, All pictures are from photodune.com for only 1$ or 2$ per piece! If there’s interest i can post the links to every image. Actually with a single licence I’m not allowed to resell them, but they are sooo cheap and have a perfect quality.

Cheers, minti

Default-user

Thanks, minti. Yes, could you post the links please? Actually, is the slide banner composed with banners that I need to create? Is is possible not to use “Some of our clients” with logos?

Hey there, no you can of course create how many slides and any slides you want, it’s easy done with drag&drop – just view my screencast on how to create sliders here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrcdSGfd7Gc

The images used in the slider are: http://photodune.net/item/businessman-touching-futuristic-screen/1853969 http://photodune.net/item/portrait-of-a-good-looking-african-american-business-man/658305 http://graphicriver.net/item/20-hand-drawn-arrows/1222267 http://photodune.net/item/business-presentation/213547

Heya, Is it possible to add round edges to the boxed version? On the sides and at the top ,making it a lil bit smoother.

minti

Hey andresand, You could do something like that with http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_border-radius.asp to the #boxed-layout ID in CSS.

Hi, two more questions to your theme. Can I use the twitter area in the footer (it’s blue in your demo) although for other content? Is it possible to change the background-color in your boxes, teaser and callouts? Thanks!

minti
minti Author

Hey there, actually you can turn off / on the twitter bar but don’t put any other content in there without a little coding to footer.php, the boxes teasers and callouts only change the link & headline colors according to the colors set in the Theme Options Panel, not the background color. I hope this helps.

Thanks, minti

Hello. Thank you for a nice theme.

Have you tested “dummy content” import ?

In some reason even I wait 20-30 mins with 100 Mbit connection it does not go to the end. I can see in address bar …............../wp-admin/admin.php?import=wordpress&step=2 but newer get confirmation about successfully import. I have made now 3 different “fresh” WP3.5 installs with clean MySQL base, everything has made like theme instructions says.

If I wait 20-30 mins and startover. It tell me this-and-this already exist, and finally “Have a fun” message comes. But unfortunately there is all pages, etc two times.

Before this, never had any difficulties with WP/Dummy imports.

Any tips what to test next?

minti
minti Author

Hey there, never had problems with the dummy import, tested it myself some times before uploading the theme, also other users imported it successfully. If it exists twice, that means it’s not a clean install, or you imported it before. The times really vary a lot importing the Demo XML. Did you try it on localhost or on internet? Sometimes it’s a thing of your hosting provider.

the column shortcode with icon box doesn’t seem to work properly.

I tried setting up three 1/3 columns and in each 1/3 column i had an icon box in it. Only 2 icon boxes fit, the third one wraps.

minti
minti Author
did you make sure the last column has the last tag in it? Best to copy it from here: http://inovado.mintithemes.com/shortcodes/columns/
[one_third]Content here.[/one_third] 
[one_third]Content here.[/one_third] 
[one_third_last]Content here.[/one_third_last]

That should work properly

Thanks, minti

Hi,

Very impressed with this theme – 5 stars!

One concern I have though is that custom styles are being listed in the header. This means search engines have a long list of style details to get through before reaching the content, which isn’t great for SEO.

Is there any way to avoid this happening? I haven’t noticed this with other themes so maybe style options are saved in the db instead?

Thanks :)

minti
minti Author

Hey there & thanks so much. well in fact I had to choose between 1) extremly slow performance when making a dynamic php file with css headers wordpress gets loaded twice on every single page, 2) unflexible in order that every user has to copy all styles via ftp, 3) unsecure when writing the styles into a file, or in my eyes the best way 4) inserting them into the head – which is the fastest, most secured and most flexible way and really isn’t bad for seo as the contents begins at body and the styles are before the body part google ignores them :-)

Before purchase;

1. Is it possible to change the height of the header areas, both static images like http://inovado.mintithemes.com/pages/pricing/ and slider on the start page eg. Revolution slider? 2. Can I use sliders on subpages in header area? 3. What layout possibilities is it in the footer and hidden header area, e.g. 4-col, 3-col and so on…? 4. Can I use the Google Map shortcode in header area in 100% width? 5. How flexible id the top nav area, “Call us: / Mail:? I need to add a link to our partner web here.

minti
minti Author

Hey there & thanks for your interest.

1) The Slider height can be changed in the Slider Settings in the Backend, the static image height needs a little CSS adjustment.

2) Definitely yes!

3) In the Footer it’s the 4 Column Widget Area, in the ‘Attention Grabber Bar’ it’s a 4 Column Widget Area or a 1 Column Text Area.

4) That’s actually not possible, I’m sorry

5) The Topbar can be completely switched on / off, you can also switch the social icons on / off, you can add any text or link you want on the left side and you can of course change the background color, text color, link color, border color for that section (as for every section) separately.

I hope this helps. Thanks, minti

OK. Thanks again for your reply! I have a final Q. Where will the “Change language” btn be placed if I use WPML plugin?

minti
minti Author

WPML comes with a widget for the languages, so you will be able to put those to the footer area, sidebar areas or even into the attention grabber bar.

How can you select a specific category or tag to show blog post on home screen instead of just the latest blog posts?

minti

Hey Frankic, actually the latest blog posts shortcode shows the latest blog posts independently from the category, you could order them with the Re-Order Plugin. That would indeed be a nice feature for a future update! Thanks, minti

I would also like to use projects and Portfolio in a different way. Instead of using Portofolios to show off Projects I would like to showcase services we offer. How can I change Project Description to Services, Project details to Service Details, Client to Service, Basically anything that references Portfolio to say Service Portfolio and anything that says Project to say Services? Thank you with this

Hey frankic, the best way would be to do a “translation” with the .po files – basically this wouldn’t be a translation but a renaming but it’s the same process. The Steps for a translation are described in the Documentation. You can also change the Projects Slug in the Theme Options Panel, just make sure to update your Permalinks after changing the slug!

Cheers, minti

There is nothing in the documentation that tells you how to make the changes to site with the new .po files. I made the changes to the .po files now what? Do I upload the changes via FTP? Both files the .PO and MO? Is there an option in the theme to replace or choose the new .po or .mo file?

minti
minti Author

Of course it is in the Documentation it’s called “Translation”. So open framework/languages/en_EN.po file – translate it / rename it wit PoEdit – save it – a new en_EN.mo file has been generated which has to be uploaded in the same folder online. If you use WordPress in another language the file name should be your language shortcode (for germany it’s de_DE.po / de_DE.mo, ..)

Default-user
frankic Purchased

You mis understood. The process to create make the changes to the files is in the documentation. Whats not in the documentation is what to do with that files once you have created a new one. I uploaded the chnaged .po and .mo file to same folder via FTP and no changes occurred. I basically replaced the english .po and .mo files with the new ones that I created and they still show the same information.

Default-user
frankic Purchased

Is there a place in Word Press to choose the specific .po and .mo file for it to use? The uploaded files do not reflect the changes.

minti
minti Author

Sure your WordPress config file wp-config.php in root folder has define

define ('WPLANG', 'en_EN');

in it? Which Editor did you use to create the .mo file?
Default-user
frankic Purchased

I used POEdit as suggested. Do I need to enter into the wp-config.php to point to the new files or should this happen once I upload the changes?

minti
minti Author
Just make sure it’s in the wp-confic.php file for you it would be
define ('WPLANG', 'en_EN');
that defines which language should be used
Default-user
frankic Purchased

Is this something that has to be done? I just want to make sure. Could you breakdown the process of what to do once you create a new po and mo file? That is not in the documentation. I just want to be sure we are on the same page. Do we need to take these steps or should the changes uploaded just work without these other steps?

minti
minti Author

normally after you created the en_EN.mo file just upload to the themes folder in inovado/framework/languages that should work – if this doesn’t take effect make sure you insert the define() stuff in the wp-config.php in the root of your installation – that should be en_EN if your .mo is called en_EN.mo

The file you send me is called en_EN2.mo so I’m not wondering why it doesn’t work… is has to be called en_EN.mo… it’s reaaally easy, you just have to follow these simple rules!

Was any testing done for theme using actual Android Phone / Tablet hardware? Specifically the mobile Chrome browser (which is quite different from it’s iOS counterpart).

Is it possible to display the “back to up” arrow in the mobile portrait mode even if it might obscure a small area of the content?

minti
minti Author

Hey there, yes I’ve tested it in all major browsers and also on an HTC Desire HD, it looks and works perfect.

Yes, that’s possible you just need to change 1 line of CSS, I can help you with that.

hi, Nice theme, can you pls provide the sample slider content as well? I imported the dummy data but slider content is not included.

minti

Hey there, as stated in the documentation the slider data will not be included, as I’m not allowed to resell these images. There’s also a little Video Tutorial on how to set up a Slider like this in the documentation, it’s reaaally easy :-) just give it a try!

On the Support forums there’s also a linklist with the images used in the slider, most of them cost just $1 or $2.

Thanks, minti

hi thanks for the reply, actually i tried but its not really easy. I have my own images I just need the code, the animation/heading style etc etc.. I will use my own images just need the base to start with.. I dnt need images just the code plsss

Did you watch the screencast? There I show how to setup an identical slide to the one of the demo in about 2-3 minutes with all settings and styles.

Actually there’s no possibility to exclude & include the slider data of the demo.

yeah I know I m being lazy,, :) actually if you can just export the data from your rslider and provide me the txt file that will be a great help for me as i can quickly import and edit the existing slide

Hi, I’m considering buying this theme. I want to ask you some questions 1) the portfolio has paging? 2) in the slider on the home page, you can embed images with links to projects in the portfolio or blog page?

p.s. : I tried to contact form on your page to ThemeForest, but do not answer ..

minti

Hey there & thanks for your interest, well I answered to a mail that was exactly the same (don’t know if it was you)

1) Yes you can set an individual number in the backend of how many items you want on the portfolio pages before the pagination shows up.

2) Yes you can put any images in the Slider you like and of course link every image to any destination you like :-)

Hi… I already bought the theme. Now I tried to use own icons for the Icon-Boxes. I tried something like this: [iconbox icon=”http://domain.de/inovado/wp-content/icons/icon_1.png” title=”Title 1.”] But this doesn’t take effect. How I can use my own icons? Maybe you would be so friendly and give me a hand for this. Thanks! Kind regards

minti
minti Author

Hey klaus actually you can choose from all those icons here for the iconbox shortcode, just type the name of the icon in there http://inovado.mintithemes.com/shortcodes/icons/

You can build your own “iconbox” if you nest the columns shortcode. At least this would be an awesome and easy idea for extending the iconbox shortcode which I will definitely take on my feature list for the future updates.

Is there just the one header style?

Perhaps it’s possible to put the navigation below the logo and have the logo image span the width of the theme’s header area yet still responsively scale?

minti
minti Author

Hey there, with little coding adjustments this would easily be possible to create. It’s just bringing the navigation in a new row. If you don’t feel comfortable with coding you can request a free quote here http://mintithemes.com/customization/

Inovado also includes 4 different title styles: Image, Title, Slider or even no titlebar at all.

I hope this helps a bit :-)

Default-user

I see. I’d have no problem making the required coding adjustments if provided. Thanks.
