Rich is is possible to slow down the speed of the slider transition?

ThemeBeans

Yup it sure is. There’s a couple other options too, transition speed, animation speed, animation style (fade or slide). Here’s a screenshot: http://thmbns.co/R1GO

theme is great! enjoy how open the slider is and generally how malleable the theme is.

is the google map on the contact page a plugin or part of the theme? (http://demo.themebeans.com/krative/lets-get-in-touch/)

ThemeBeans

Hey Buzzguy – it’s actually a part of the theme. Head to the Theme Customizer under Contact Template, and you can add the iFrame in there. You can alternatively add in an image as well – if you prefer.

How do I change the fields on the contact form?

ThemeBeans

Hey Zobi2, you can edit the page-contact.php form via the files or add it to the child theme and edit it there.

I just discovered your themes – I’m liking in a major way what I see :)

You themes would be over the top with the added ability of selling online – Artists, photographers and agencies – they all want it I’ll bet.

Feature request – Woocommerce integration please!

Thanks for your feedback @d4d. I’m not sure if some of those requests are in the scope of the theme – but we’ll look into it! :)

@kaga @d4b, how would you see the use of Woocommerce on this theme? Would you sell service packages?

@mhwd, there is no support forum, but you can submit an issue at the ThemeBeans knowledge base available here: http://help.themebeans.com/customer/portal/emails/new

@IamShipon1988, I really appreciate forum conversations. what experience do you have with their response time? Newbie here who will need support!

ThemeBeans

We work hard to respond ASAP – which is usually within 24 hours at most (sometimes on weekends).

I see the theme has a portfolio carousel, does it also have one for the blog?

Thanks,

William

ThemeBeans

Hey @manofmagic – yup it does: screenshot: http://thmbns.co/R0C5 :)

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply!

Does it have a shortcode for testimonials? I see it has a slider, but is it possible to list them out on a page?

Also, I am using an Android Phone. The menu is acting strange. When I scroll, the menu turns black (All the items disappear). I can’t see where I am scrolling. Once I remove my finger from the screen, the menu reappears. Can this be fixed?

Thanks,

William

ThemeBeans

Hey @manofmagic – we’ll look into it more (sidebar Android) but I’m having trouble reproducing it. Do you mind sending a screenshot with your Android device/os info to rich@themebeans(dot)com?

The testimonials is a widget, not a shortcode. You can select to display that widget globally if you’d like though – where we have the Call to Action widget at in the live demo.

LOVE THE THEME!!!! Great work guys. I’m becoming a big fan of your themes.

Question, I purchase the Words theme a while back and noticed it had the option to upload a custom header image, is there any way I could code this into the “Krative Theme” I’d love to have this custom functionality….

Thank you!

ThemeBeans

Hey Phillip, Thanks!

It’s possible if you find the right parts in Words (Spruce does it too) and input it in the correct files. The important parts in Words are from meta-general.php (where the actual uploader is) – then you would take that variable and insert in the same fashion as the bean_custom_styles function at the bottom of theme-functions.php in Krative. The logic is in place, it just has to be accurately added in :)

Hello ! I would like to know if your theme, or your shortcodes plugin, include a pricing table ? & if not do you know a good solution to make it ?

ThemeBeans

Hey Pigapiga, no we do not have a pricing table shortcode in the shortcodes plugin – though we do have something in the works that may suit your needs (probably 1 – 1.5 months away).

Rich

Thanks a lot for your answere ! I have a last question & then it’s ok :)

Do you know if it’s possible to disable the side panel menu only with computer device ? I would like it display only when it’s a tablette or a smartphone. here is the website adresse : http://www.highsound.fr

Quentin.

ThemeBeans

Sure, you could add a class of “show-for-small” to the “hidden-sidebar” div in content-hidden-sidebar.php on line 1. This would display it only on small screens (less than 767px).

Rich

Default-user

Thanks a lot ! but this is not what I meant. I just want to disable this : https://s.gks.gs/img/img/08-2013/Forme_1.png but keep the side panel menu running for small & medium device.

ThemeBeans

Ah got it. Add that same class to the “a” on line 72 of header.php. That’ll do the trick.

Rich

Default-user

It works perfectly ! Thanks a lot !

@pigapiga I can confirm it doesn’t, but I would also like one of my own, hopefully beany crew will build one as they are very useful, in the meantime here are some links for you… http://codecanyon.net/search?utf8=?&term=pricing+tables

Thanks for the help Rich!

richpearsonwd

Welcome :-) Any plans to do a global pricing plugin Rich?, could be a really useful one for a lot of people.

ThemeBeans

We have started working on an improved shortcodes plugin with additional shortcodes in different plugins (like Pricing Tables). :)

Nice Theme waiting for the Pricing Table for sure need that can’t wait I don’t know if this is possible to get alert if this functionality is added.

Thanks F

Before I Purchase Please can you Answer these Questions.

Q1 – On the Home page I don’t want to show the following things “What We Have Been Working On” , “Let’s Work Together” , “What People Are Saying” ,

Q2 – Decrease the Footer Size

I want Cut down the website Height over all by removing few elements. Please let me know asap.

thanks Faisal

ThemeBeans

It’ll probably be about 30 days till we’re ready to release the Pricing Table plugin. There’s a couple of well done plugins out there for that – but here’s some answers for the other questions for you:

1. The home page is pretty customizable and totally re-arrangable (see example) where you can add whichever widget sections (up to 5) to your home template). On that example I’ve just added a couple of elements (3 sections) but you can have less if you’d like even.

2. In style.css on line 2886 you can adjust the padding of the #footer-container ID (which is currently at 120px). Alternatively, you can adjust this via the included child theme – so your changes wont get overwritten when a update is published.

When installing your recommended plugins I had the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method TGM_Bulk_Installer_Skin::bulk_header() in D:\My Documents\xampp\htdocs\agency\wp-content\themes\wcba\lib\plugins\class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 1659

ThemeBeans

Hey there, that’s an odd one. Do you mind contacting the Bean Support Center and we’ll see what’s going on?

Off the bat, I suggest you disable any plugins you have already installed (just in case) and try installing the theme again and running the plugin installation.

I know that in some cases your Host’s max execution time can spark some Fatal Errors, but we’ve yet to hear a report of this.

Default-user

Amazing response! I did a fresh install from localhost on Xamp. I also tried installing using the exact folder names you use (although your zip files contain the theme files inside folders so it is hard for people to directly upload as they need to extract and then zip up the inner folders)

The error happens instantly so I am thinking there is a programming error rather than my local host throwing a execution time error.

OH and I have 0 plugins installed

ThemeBeans

Something is going weird on your end – not programmatically, I assure you (otherwise we’d have surely heard of any errors yet) – but we’ll figure it out. :)

Did you remove the bean-slider.zip from the theme files? The plugin activator pulls those zipped files (bean-slider.zip and bean-team.zip) and installs them in your wp-content/plugins folder. There’s no need to pull them out and upload them manually or modify any URL’s for the plugin (works off of your WordPress install).

I just noticed that you’re using the child theme though – which is what is probably causing the errors. Switch to the actual theme – then install the plugins through the activator. After they’ve installed, switch back to the child theme. I bet that’s the issue.

Default-user

Installing the plugins through the main theme worked a treat thanks for the super fast response.

Last question what responsive grid system, if any, are you using ?

ThemeBeans

Glad that worked! :)

We’re using an extremely customized version of Zurb Foundation 3 grid. I didn’t like 4 enough to warrant a framework switch, but Zurb is pretty good itself.

Cheers, Rich

Default-user

Rich…I cannot not tell you how happy you just made me! Thing is our current site www.webcoursesagency.com is made on Foundation and as a result they featured us on their website http://foundation.zurb.com/case-wcb.php.

I have been searching for a theme that I really felt was a good fit for our new branding and yours was it. I thought I would have to take the bullet and loose the link from Zurb OR adapt the theme I choose to Zurb.

Long story short you are even more awesome :) Thanks Rich

ThemeBeans

Haha awesome – yea I’ve really taken a liking to Zurb over the other popular responsive frameworks. Its simple, intuitive & pretty easy to customize.

Is your demo broken?

ThemeBeans

We’ve been getting lots of traffic spikes which are overloading our servers at times but it should catch up in a sec – if it hasn’t already (loading alright for me).

Greetings! Do all the slides get loaded upfront at initial load/visit? or they they get streamed upon request or timer?

Would be a big load upfront if it is uprofront… would like it configurable (like ajax)... please advice. Thanks

ThemeBeans

Hey Team-d. All the slides are preloaded (using Flex-Slider here). It doesn’t affect the performance of the site unless you have a good number of slides – which I would reccomend against as almost every UX study suggests that users only view 2, sometimes 3 slides.

It’s not configurable with the theme by default but it may be possible.

hi ThemeBeans,

This is a great theme and I’m having a great time working on it. I have some questions though.

1. The portfolio gallery (im using stacked images) crops the images I upload itself instead of resizing it to the maximum width of the right column. Is there someway I can change that? Or do i have to do my images accordingly?

2. Is there anyway i can put my own code in and hence my own gallery maybe on the right column? The excerpt is on the right column but it doesn’t detect shortcodes unfortunately.

Thanks

ThemeBeans

Hey there, here’s some help for you to get you on track then! :)

1. The image size is set to extend to the highest height your image is uploaded at, with a max width of 640 pixels. This means if you upload a really wide image it will scale the image to fit within the 640px wide zone – but also scale it vertically to keep the proportion. This is the case because of the responsive nature of the theme and the best way to accomplish consistency.

I recommend to upload images at a proportion that you’re happy with so there’s minimal changes. If you would like to modify the function, you’ll find the add_image_size PHP function in lib/functions/theme-setup.php (line 64) as the portfolio-single.

You’ll see that it is set to display at a 640px width with an unlimited height variable.

2. I am working to enable shortcodes on that excerpt area, I’m pretty sure I can get it working soon. There is not a default way to input code in that area really though I have some ideas for future implementation along the lines of the Video Portfolio Post Format embed entry. I think something like that could work if it was shortcode enabled.

Hope this helps! Rich

Hi,

I think Krative is a great theme. I just have one question: when my website loads (pacovermeulen.nl) and I scroll down I don’t see the CTA buttons in the let’s work together section. When I scroll further down and then back up it does show the buttons. Is this a loading setting that I can change? So that it always loads these buttons first?

ThemeBeans

Hey Paco, they seem to be loading fine on my end. If you’d like to adjust the rate in which they trigger (or remove the animation altogether) simply remove the waypoint call in assets/js/custom.js lines 264-267 and remove the ” .js .waypoints .widget_bean_cta .six.columns, ” from style.css line 3827 (or if you’re using your included child theme, add it to your stylesheet with the style of “opacity: 1!important).

Cheers! Rich

Hi Rich, just wanted to clarify something with you, is the Newsletter subscription widget based on Mailchimp, as was just going to start using it and realised I didn’t know what the ‘Subscribe Code’ field meant, I have generated a mailchimp api key is that the same thing? :-)

Cheers bud Rich

ThemeBeans

Yup it is (though it works with any form action code). When you get a copy if the HTML sign up form, use the form action code and enter that in.

richpearsonwd

Ok cool ta, which part of this goes in your widget?

<form action=”http://richpearsondesigner.us7.list-manage.com/subscribe/post?u=5b14adb7f3334132a65f527cb&id=e98cecd630” method=”post” id=”mc-embedded-subscribe-form” name=”mc-embedded-subscribe-form” class=”validate” target=”_blank” novalidate>

richpearsonwd

Cool, that works in that the submission action sends it to the mailchimp form I created, but how do I do it so that when an email address is entered it automatically subscribes to mail chimp? Isn’t that what your themebeans website does?

richpearsonwd

When creating this: http://themebeans.us6.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=e7267bfd563b8f29ef95ba846&id=739445b065 did you use mailchimps form builder? and if so which one as there are several options, eg General Forms, Embedded Forms, Form Integrations…

ThemeBeans

That’s not using WordPress at all there. I used the default MailChimp pages with a bunch of custom styling. It’s General Forms (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/RElU)

richpearsonwd

Ok giving it a go now, looking at your source though how did you get some of the custom code you have in your form? It seems like you did something special to yours in the source code

richpearsonwd

You must also have a paid for account to remove the mail chimp logo?

ThemeBeans

Yea I believe you do have to have a paid account for the logo.

I rewrote basically the entire templates for all of those sections there in that screenshot. They give you a really basic/CSS void template to start with – I just rethought it with a bit better styling.

Rich

richpearsonwd

Ok thanks Rich, and finally does the Krative Newsletter widget have to use the form to pass the details into mailchimps DB? The error messages and congrats messages can they not be controlled on the website rather than going off to mailchimps custom forms, for instance when I test sign up using the widget now I get confirmation mailchimp check your email page…

ThemeBeans

You would have to use MailChimp’s WordPress widget if you wanted success/error messages and ajax responses – which I currently use on the themebeans.com website (with lots of custom CSS).

richpearsonwd

brill thanks Rich, question though using the first method (mail chimp forms) I cannot see anywhere a way of adding custom CSS it’s all WYSIWYG now – how did you add in google fonts/typekit and some of the custom code I can see in the source? – And very lastly on this subject would be amazing if you could share an article/blog entry on how people can set this up with great styling :-)

ThemeBeans

Good idea, I’ll see what I can do (re blog post). If you click on one of these links (screenshot: http://thmbns.co/REQO) it pulls up the HTML/CSS editor there. Not sure if you need a paid account to do it though.

richpearsonwd

hmm ok I can see that switch to visual designer and back option at all, but according to this: http://mailchimp.com/pricing/free/ it’s not restricted?

ThemeBeans

Don’t use the visual designer.

richpearsonwd

I wouldn’t but there is no option to switch it off it seems unless i’m missing something – sorry Rich protracted conversation on this

richpearsonwd

Im just just be going mad but these instructions: http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/advanced-customization-of-mailchimps-sign-up-forms and the live page just don’t match up, I have no advanced mode on this page – do you?

richpearsonwd

theres the answer: Advanced mode is available only on paid accounts. oh well never mind sorry to bother you on all this

ThemeBeans

It’s all good :)

I don’t know much about MC as well, just sat down for an afternoon and figured that stuff out – though I’ve had a paid account for a good minute now.

richpearsonwd

See your email bud :-)
