Paul,

One more question. Is there any way to get the social media bar up at the top, rather than the bottom of the page. Most people “like” and “tweet” near the top of the page.

If not, Do you recommend a plug in that can allow that positioning and will work with the responsive theme ?

Thanks again, mate.

Dave,

There is no option for that. You would need to manually modify the code and CSS for moving them to the top.

For the plugins, I think you may be interested in “Floating Social Media Icon” and “Social Toolbar” plugins.

Also, here are a few more that you might want to try:

Paul,

I worked quite a bit on this over the weekend, but unfortunately no social media plug-ins seem to work with the theme. The issue appears to be with the testimonial slider. I sent you a ticket outlining the specifics.

I have tested many social toolbars and widgets, none of which work with the theme. Two of the most popular and nicest tools that I had seen: “WP Socializer” and “Sociable” both did not work, much to my dismay. Just plug these in and test them with the theme, and it should generate the same issues I had.

Social media is so important nowadays for traffic and rankings that I really need to get this up and running. I would really appreciate it if you could see about supporting the above two plug-ins, at least.

If not, could you see about revamping the “built in” social tool bar to be more rubust like the aforementioned plug-ins? That way, users can integrate quality social media into a great theme!

Cheers, Dave

UXbarn

Dave,

Acually the testimonials are Custom Post Type (CPT) and it seems like the plugins include them for registering the social icons automatically. What I can tell is that the theme is already implementing the CPT in the generic way and there is no problem with that.

So I would suggest you to post your query on their support forums. They may be able to give you the workaround to hide the icons on some CPT.

Or, you can try this plugin: Socialize (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/socialize/). It has the option for selecting which CPT to display the social icons which is great. It is also quite flexible to customize using its own options. I recommend this one.

A Side Note: In my experience as a user, the auto setting (default mode in almost plugins) may not be able to fit in all cases. If the theme has only the blogging module, that will be fine for the auto setting since it is pretty straight-forward for the plugins to place the social icons on blog posts and pages.

But if the theme (or even other plugins) includes CPT or getting more complicated, the auto setting may not be ideal especially when the plugins have no option for CPT selection. You might rather need to disable the auto mode and manually use the plugin code snippet. This is why many social plugins also provide their placement code for putting into the theme files manually as an alternative.

Cheers, Paul

Paul,

I had already tried socialize yesterday and it conflicted as well. As I said, I tried many of the most popular social toolbar plugins. They all conflicted, even the most basic. I have a feeling that it is a commonality across most, if not all of these types of plugins given that they conflict with the theme’s CPT, apparently. Interestingly enough, whenever I have had an issue with any plugin adversely affecting your theme, it always seems to be the CPT areas that are affected. I wonder why? There must be some common thread across the board.

Side note: I had not seen any options of excluding CPT from being affected within any of the plug-ins, but will check agaiin. To the best of my recollection, it was an all or none type of situation. Although you could excude particular pages for the tool bar to be applied, this still did not matter as the instant the plug in was activated, the theme became severely altered, particularly the main page(since that contains the large testimonial slider). Besides, exluding the main page from having a social media bar really makes no sense, anyhow.

I’ll try posting on the various plugin forums, however I have a bad feeling they will point a finger to the Theme itself and blame that, especially given that over a million users have been using some of these plug ins. If I find a workaround, I will post it, so that users of this theme can benefit.

I would suggest you take a look at how some of these plugins alter your theme for yourself(if you haven’t already), it’s pretty dramatic. I think having a robust, working social media toolbar in any theme is crucial. Just my two cents.

Cheers, Dave

P.S. I’ll move the remainder of our discussion over to the open ticket, as not to clutter the forum. I only posted this question here, hoping that someone else may have found a solution previously and could get a quick solution.

We are trying to recreate the rooms page as seen here http://paradise.socialmediaambassador.com/the-estate/indoor-living/

We want an outdoor living area to have the room styling on the page as well. I understand I can do something close with categories but we want to have the description at the top like the page above. Can you help with a suggestion?

Thank you.

UXbarn

Hi,

Sure. You understand correctly about using room categories. Just create “Outdoor Living” category, enter some description and assign the rooms to it.

Then go to “Appearance > Menus” page to add that category to the navigation menu. If you could not see the category box in that page, click “Screen Options” at the top right of your screen then select “Room Categories” to make it visible.

Now you will have the page of “Outdoor Living” category which lists the rooms and its description will be display at the top.

Hope this helps! ;)

Neither of the room categories show in the categories section when I am in Menus.

I found that answer in another post. Screen Options. I never would have thought to look there.

Hi again! I have two questions:

1. Is there a way to add a slideshow like the one in the rooms to a different page? Like a shortcode for a slideshow on half-page layouts.

2. Is it possible to change the header image of individual rooms? Right now all individual rooms have the same header as the Rooms page.

Thank you!

UXbarn

Hi,

As per your question:

1. The theme has no option or shortcode for that. But I think many plugins out there could provide you the great slideshow feature. :)

2. There is no option for that unfortunately.

Regarding my previous questions. I would only need to know if it was possible to do one or the other out of the two questions.

Ideally, I would only need to change the header image of individual room pages. That would solve the issue that I’m having. Thank you!

Hi. Is it possible to link the Room’s photo slideshow with some category in Gallery? For example, I have a 10 photos of “Room King” in gallery and I just want to be able to select those 10 photos in my Single Room page – something like: keep rotating the photos from “Category A” in the Room’s page.

Thanks

UXbarn

Unfortunately not. The theme has no option for that.

Ok. Understand. Few more questions which are a little bit more complex for me to solve:

1. Is it possible to define the position of a pin on a Google map? I don’t want it to be in the centre of the map. I would like to see it near the top end of the map.

2. When you click on “Book Now” under the Single Room page, it redirects you to the Booking page where you can fill the Reservation form. Is it possible to connect that Book Now action to Room type field so when I click on “Book Now” under “Deluxe Rooms” and when I arrive on Booking page that “Deluxe Rooms” is already selected under the Room Type field?

3. In the Reservation form: For example let’s say I want to book a room in July 2013. I click on a Check-in field, scrool from February (today) to July and I pick a day. After that I need to enter a check out date and again I need to scrool from February to July. Is it possible to change the code somehow so the check out field is always in the same month as the selected check in month so you don’t need to do a lot of clicks to pick a month?

Thanks in advance!

UXbarn

Hmm. I am sorry to say that the questions would need additional customization which is beyond my general support. Generally speaking, the theme by default has its own scope of usage for the options and features. Other than that, you would need to customize it manually.

In this case, I would recommend you to find a freelancer to customize the theme as your needs. You could post your requirements at ThemeForest Forum and I am sure many great freelancers out there will be glad to help you on this. ;)

Or perhaps you might find the plugins for Google Maps and the booking form. I am not sure whether they can fully achieve what you want but you could give it a shot. :)

You would need to use CSS for that. Please go to “Theme Options > More Styles” and try the following code into the “Custom CSS” box:

There is an issue with Gravity Forms and having their drop down calendar work on our inquiry page.

They show this screenshot to explain the issue. https://www.evernote.com/shard/s212/sh/ec3f6336-13d2-4869-8e6d-f203dc0bd09c/83647a61a2cf21e366ef17c2072f7bc9

And say: “It looks like your theme is including a custom jquery-ui stylesheet that is hiding the table. See this Screenshot

You would either need to edit/update that to not hide the styles or overwrite them with your own CSS rules to override the theme.”

How do I do that?

UXbarn

Hmm. Please try the followings:

1. Open “functions.php” file then go to the line 103 and you will see the code as:

wp_enqueue_style('jquery-ui-style', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/smoothness/jquery-ui-1.8.22.custom.css', false, '1.0');

2. Comment out that line by adding ”//” at the front. As a result, it will be:

//wp_enqueue_style('jquery-ui-style', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/smoothness/jquery-ui-1.8.22.custom.css', false, '1.0');

The steps above tell the theme to ignore loading that “jquery-ui-1.8.22.custom.css” stylesheet file. This should solve the problem.

Kindly note that if the problem still persists, try to clear both of your browser cache and web cache then reload the page again.

Is there a way to make the gallery show captions?

Also on the category page with rooms. Can we change the spacing so there aren’t just two listings and a blank space? http://paradise.socialmediaambassador.com/room-category/outdoor-living/
UXbarn

1. Yes. Just add some text into the editor box (content area) of the gallery image. The caption will be displayed in the lightbox mode.

2. No. Actually you are using “3-columns” layout to display the room items so that is why when there are 2 rooms, the last column is left blank.

You may consider using “2-columns” layout instead by going to “Theme Options > Rooms” and under the section of “Rooms Page Layout”, just select the layout there. :)

This should solve the issue by using the “real” sender name (from contact form) into the email header. :)

Paul,

In your button shortcode, is there a way to have the button link open a new window for the url ? I tried to use: target=”_blank” within the link, but it still used the current window, rather than opening a new one when clicked on. Any advice ?

Thanks Dave

UXbarn

Hi Dave,

To do that, you would need to modify ”/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php” file. Open the file then go to the line 181 and you will see the code as:

return '<a href="' . $link . '" class="'. $size . ' ' . $color . ' button">' . $content . '</a>';

Just add the “target” attribute here. As a result, the code will be:

return '<a target="_blank" href="' . $link . '" class="'. $size . ' ' . $color . ' button">' . $content . '</a>';

Hope this helps! :)

Default-user

Thanks Paul. Only concern I have is that will cause all button links to open in a new window(correct?), and wouldn’t want that as a condition to be met for every instance. I’ll try and poke around a bit more for another workaraound.

Just a suggestion, if you do work on your button shortcodes in the future, would be nice when building the link to have that option (like a check box to open in a new window near the url) and then it would generate the code accordingly. Just a thought.

Thanks again, Dave

Hi. Now a little bit easier questions than my previous ones :)

1. how can I remove “Meta” part of the sidebar on the Blog section? Here, in the bottom right corner: Link

2. I will need to add some links next to the Facebook icon (left from the Facebook icon), in line with the copyright text. How can I do that? I suppose I’ll need to create a new div or something like that, just not sure where to put it in the code.

Thanks

UXbarn

Hi,

Yeah, these are a lot more easier and still in the support scope as well. :)

1. Go to “Appearance > Widgets” and under the “Blog Sidebar” area, just remove that “Meta” widget out of the area.

2. That is right. You would need to modify “footer.php” file. Open the file and at the line 87, you will see this code:

<span id="text"><?php echo ot_get_option('ux_setting_copyright_text'); ?></span>

Try adding the “div” element above that line of code as following:

<div style="float: right; margin-top: 5px;"> Place your text or link here ... </div>
<span id="text"><?php echo ot_get_option('ux_setting_copyright_text'); ?></span>

Nice work.

Is there a full width option available to theme’s layout?

Thanks. :)

UXbarn

Hi,

Thank you for your interest. :)

For your question, did you mean making the root container of the theme into full-screen layout? If so, there is not unfortunately. The layout is only available in fixed-width (940px width).

But if what you meant is about the “full-width column” to use within that fixed layout, you can use our column shortcode for that. :)

And, also, when we receive the message I’d like to change the name of the sender (Hotel instead of Wordpress).

Hi,

As per your question:

1. You could find the texts of the contact form in ”/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php” file. Then go to the line around 441, you will see the function of “register_contactform_shortcode()”.

2. To do that, go to “Settings > Email” and enter “Hotel” or any name you want into the field of “From Name”.

Hope this helps!

Hello I just bought the Lamoon Theme and trying to build up my site from it. However, I am encountering an issue which I have been attempting to work out what could be the cause. The problem is that I am having difficulties in uploading the 940×450 slider images for the homepage. The images are just not uploading to the slider field. Please could let me know how to resolve the issue. Thank you

UXbarn

Hi there,

Sorry but I am not sure I understand your issue correctly. What does it mean by “The images are just not uploading to the slider field”? Could you please elaborate?

Hello

First, thank you for the prompt response to my query. I am trying to insert some images in the homepage slider item section via the Theme Options-Home & Slider tab-Add new-Slider Image field. I entered the item title, description of the image item and then clicked on the upload icon to select the 940×450 images that I have prepared. I am able to select the images but when I clicked on save all changes, the images are not shown that they have been selected and they do not appear in the slider on the homepage. I believe I should see the images once they are selected and saved in the slider in the Theme Options-Home & Slider-Slider image.

UXbarn

Hi, thanks for the details. ;)

For your problem, after clicking at the upload icon and selecting the image to be used, you would need to click on “Send to OptionTree” button instead of “Save all changes”. Please see the screenshot here for the button location: http://bit.ly/XvX4t4

Hello, thank you for helping me in finding a solution to my problem. I noticed that a link to the image is provided as attachment id. I made some further investigation also and found that the user that I was using in Wordpress was having the issue when the image was not being upload. i have two admin users.

However, although I maged to upload the URL link of the image for the slider in the homepage, I am faced with another problem, the image is not appearing in the slider when viewing the page. You can see that there is someting moving across the header but only a broken icon is shown. How can I get the images appearing in the Homepage header?

Thank you

I think the image URL is invalid so the theme could not display it on the slider. Please try the following steps:

1. Remove all slider items entirely then click Save once.

2. Start adding the first item then click the upload icon.

3. Browse your image and when the upload progress is done, you will see the image info screen. Then follow the steps in this screenshot: http://bit.ly/15aRuQn

4. Image link will be sent to the slider item. As a result, you will have this: http://bit.ly/YKNO3M

Hi.

For the purpose of Goal conversion tracking via Google Analytics, I would need somehow to set up a Submit button on a Reservation page to “fake” a “Thank you page” or something like that. Can you help me on this? So, one solution is to replace the default Thank you message which shows now when you send a reservation enquiry with Thank you page or another solution is to leave everything the same but to fake something in the address bar when clicking Submit so GA can catch that.

Thank you!

UXbarn

Hi,

To do that, you would need to manually modify ”/scripts/lamoon.js” file. Open that file and go to the line around 273 and you will see the handler function for the reservation form named “bindReservationFormSubmitEvent()”. Just look for this line:

if (result.status == 'true') {

You could try to modify the javascript code within that if-else block which, by default, will display the thank you message. Replace it with your code for the page redirection.

Hi there, I have a problem in the theme options and other parts of the control panel, the selection-list options are not visible, I know they are there because when I roll over the mouse I can see the hand appearing over them, so I can click and make the selection.

Here is a link to a .jpg about this error. http://asistircolombia.co/wp-content/themes/Lamoon/images/Sample.jpg

Hi, please re-download the latest version of the theme and upload all the theme files into your installed theme’s directory on your server. This should solve the problem. :)

If the problem still persists after updating, try to clear both browser cache and web cache and reload the page again.

Thanks for your help, Andrés.

Sure. The files that fix the issue should be as followings:

1. /css/admin.css
2. /option-tree/assets/js/ot-admin.js
3. content-gallery.php
Just replace those files on your server with the latest ones, clear the caches and your problem should be resolved. :)
