Hi Parallelus,

If I have download this item with the envato pack, is it possible to redownload the version 2.0?

I have a big problems with the home slide show in the old version of the pack, it does not works....

If I can have the 2.0 version, it will really help me for my web site.

Thanks for a positive response! :)

Parallelus

Yes, the update will be added to the bundle files. Envato will be updating the bundle soon, allowing you to download it from your “My Account > Download” page. I’ll post something here once that is ready. If you send me an email I’ll contact you when once they notify me of the update.

Thanks Paralellus for the following.

I wrote to Envato team, and they say that the update is on the bundle, but I see no updates when I reload the pack. Do you know if they have done the update?

Thanks again!

Parallelus

Good news, the bundle files have been updated to include the v2.0 update of my Intersect theme. Thanks again for your patience.

Just uploaded theme and put logo on, no css or php changes, however the menu text on the top goes downward until it disappears, and there is no menu text next to the logo. Hope it is quick fix. ;)

You must goto the WordPress menus in “Appearance > Menus” and create 2 menus. One for the top and one for your main menu. After creating them, in the box to the left of the menus, assign one to the “top menu” for the theme and one to the “main menu” and save. You’re seeing the WordPress default menu that is used if no menus have been setup, not the theme menu.

Not that I see my last comment posted, but if it does the problem was that you changed to wordpress 3 menus and nothing shows up properly until you configure that.

Parallelus

Correct, you must create a menu in WP 3 menu manager.

I just downloaded the bundle pack, nov 2, 2010 and it does not seem to have any of the updates you listed, I still show only 8 skins available. do you know where I can get them? thanks

Parallelus

I downloaded it earlier today and the update was not there yet. I’ll follow up with Envato to see if I can get an estimate of when that might be available.

Thanks.

Parallelus

I wanted to notify you that the bundle files have been updated to include the v2.0 update of my Intersect theme if you wanted to upgrade. This includes a bunch of new skins, new admin features and a lot more.

Hello parallelus

This is my test web: http://www.webtv.cat/v2/

At the head not appear the categories and in the top appear the pages I created but go vertical.

Sorry for my poor English :-(

Thanks in advance

Parallelus

Check the documentation for details but you need to create 2 menus in the WordPress 3 “Appearance > Menu” area. After you create them, to the left of the menu is a box to associate a “Top Menu” and “Main Menu” with your design. Right now you don’t have either and WordPress is dumping some links into the first menu area.

Hi Parallelus,

Do you finally have some news of Envato team about the Intersect update in the WP pack bundle?

Thanks for a following about it! :)

Parallelus

They attempted to update the files a couple days ago but after downloading the pack again it seems the old version was still attached. They are looking into that and should have the update included ASAP . Once I’ve confirmed the update I’ll let you know.

I realized a lot of the bundle purchasers were waiting for this update so I asked if Intersect could be included in the “Bargain Basement” files for November, reducing the price to $12. This gets you the buyer badge and support which was not available in the bundle. Again, I know this doesn’t make up for the delay but hopefully will help those with an urgent need.

Thanks again for your patience while this is sorted out. I will let you know as soon as I have more information.

How do I change or get rid of the alt/title text on the slides that says “slide”?

Parallelus

You can edit that in “theme_admin/includes/addon-functions.php” lines 343 and 367.

FYI : There are 2 internet explorer bugs in this, here are fixes for them.

Issue 1) Internet explorer, even as new as version 8 renders transparent pixels black when changing slides on 24bit alpha png’s.

Fix 1) Add all of this to head: <style type="text/css"> #slideshow div img { background: transparent; -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF)"; /* IE8 */ filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF); /* IE6-7 */ zoom: 1; } </style> Issue 2) Internet explorer duplicates the last character of text on the 3rd box on the homepage. No matter what page or text is in the 3rd box. Looking on the web for answers to this issue say it has to do with comments and IE not reading things correctly with comments in certain places.

Fix 2) This isn’t really a fix, but I simply put a space (&nbsp;) at the end of my post so that the space is duplicated. Goofy bug…

Hello,

First, after reading through all of your comments, I just want to say thank you for responding to your customers so quickly and taking the time to help them.

I have a question about the background. I used the psd files to customize the background in the Mirage skin. I titled my file bg-mirage.jpg and replaced the one you had in the code, but I can’t figure out which file replaces the strip of background under the slider.

The way I created it in photoshop, the stripes you see extend all the way down behind the content box, but I can’t seem to designate the right file to replace for that.

Will you help me?

Parallelus

I believe what you are seeing is the CSS background color where the background image ends. If you changed the image to a color other than white, you’ll need to update the CSS so the color of the page extends to match the ending color of the image. This changed slightly from v1 to v2 and I don’t remember what container exactly needs this assignment in v1, but if you can send me a link I can look at your page and give you the exact CSS element needing to be updated.

Thank you so much for looking at this. It is a little more involved than just a color, so I hope it can be worked out.

Hey there! Love the theme.

But im having issues when putting in the content and using the Heading style tags.

When a heading in say h1 style and then the next line in h2. There will always be a horizontal line that appears between each line of styling.

How ever when i view the html code there are no tags?

Any tips or anything to how i can stop the HR lines from auto appearing?...

Thanks!

Parallelus

It seems you worked it out. Glad to hear it.

Ignore my last post sorry, I worked it out :)

I do have another issue now tho when i started adding pages. I havnt edited any of the php or code files but my main menu has jumped down a level i think?

Heres a screenshot :)

Thank you

Parallelus

The menu has too many links. From the screen shot I can see the menu extends until it reaches the logo. These elements share the same horizontal space on the design. Once you reach the limit of this space, the element is going to be forced to a new line. Either change the size of the main menu text or shorten the length of the titles.

The Photoshop file is sliced so you see some are where the background image appears on the file but is not exported. That’s were the included images faded to white. Enable viewing slices and resize the background slice to include the extra area for your image.

Hi Parrarellus

I also got this with the bundle – it’s a great theme. Anyone considering buying – I recommend it.

One question, can I increase the time spent on each slideshow? I thought it might be in jquery.cycle.all.min:

fx:"fade",timeout:6000,timeoutFn:null,continuous:0,speed:1000

But it doesn’t make a difference to fade effect. I want to have each slide show a little bit longer before transitions.

Parallelus

I believe the setting you want to change is “timeout”, currently set to “6000” which is 6 seconds. You can check the documentation, at the end of the file is a link to the “Cycle” plugin website. Their website has the full documentation for configuring the slide show settings.

Hi dude

First thing I wonder say that’s this theme is great, I just find out it contain html version too.

I just a problem right now, which is the page theme, I dont wonder the comments show on the pages, I delete it in default-page.php, the default style works prefect, however I wonder the full page ( without sidebar) also showing without comments, what should I do?

Thanks.

Parallelus

Make the same change to “page_fullwidth.php” and “page_leftsidebar.php” as you already did in “default-page.php”.

You can also disable commenting from the page in WordPress when you are editing. Scroll to the bottom of the page and there is an option to disable commenting.

hello parallelus,

Great theme, i installed it. there is one small issue how to remove the dots in front of the links.

You can see it for yourself http://dailywiki.org/risks-on-exposure-to-biomedical-wastes

Parallelus

I see you figured this out, and yes you were correct the bullet’s were being added from the CSS file “style-default.css”.

hello parallelus,

i corrected myself, i removed the bullets from the style sheet.

i have one more doubt, how to add widgets in homepage

Parallelus

The sidebars on sub-pages are where the widget areas exist for the theme. The home page content areas are populated from the theme options, selecting a page for the content to be pulled from.

Parallelus,

I upgraded to the new version! Thank you.

I’m only having one issue. For some reason the large navigation bar is gone and the small one is vertical.

I don’t know how that happened. i just installed the new version and this is how it came out.

What do you suggest?

Parallelus

Check the help document for details. You need to create your menus in the WP 3 “Appearance > Menu” section and assign the “Top” and “Main” menu from that area.
