mixey, After I updated the theme, the Visual Composer stop working… I click or drag and nothing is working. Thank you for your time.

Recently I didn’t update theme. Please try disabling 3rd party plugins, may be they are the reason.

Hi, I have a question: the home slides “1” and “2” includes in the demo xml are automatically “linked” to the page “Home Page” (also included in the demo xml). I’m creating a new home page, how do I “link” those home slides to my page?, if I add images to the “top slider” when creating the page it haven’t the animated text…make sense?. Thanks

mixey

Navigate to the Home slides section in WP admin area. Edit home slides, scroll to the page custom settings, you’ll see few home slide specific settings there and one of them is URL .

Thanks. Another questions, it’s possible to change the position of the facebook like button from left to right?. How can I add a contact form to the footer like in the demo page?, I don’t see it in the demo pages included in the xml

mixey

Hi,

You can’t control position of facebook button, this is something that facebook decides.

In the demo page I’m using Contact Form7 plugin. Install it on your site and then place shortcode generated by the plugin in the text widget in footer area.

Thinking about buying this theme… are the diagonal color boxes part of the demo content or do i have to create them myself?

And can I change the background?

Thanks! Great theme!

mixey

Hi,

They are part of the template, and creating new ones is very simple, you should place special module on the page (drag and drop) and set color in it.

Thanks for your comment!

Hi,

i like the theme, but it isn’t responsive. have you thought about a responsive version of lightning?

mixey

Hi,

No at the moment I don’t have plans to convert it.

This theme is great! However, I am having troubles with the homeslider. All images are blurry or ‘grainy’. I’ve tried JPG and PNG and have resized them to 1940×650. How can I get the images clear like the rest of the top header images?

Thanks!

mixey

In the theme options set: “Resize images in the slider to screen width” to off position under the Homepage layout section.

When trying to “Add Images” with visual editor, on a page I click the box and nothing comes up apart from “Finish Adding Images” button ! How does one upload these?

Also, where are the rest of the Visual Editor component? Eg: accordion etc.. that’s the reason I ended up purchasing this Theme …

not happy

mixey

When you click Add images button, WP shows you already uploaded images. Looks like you don’t have uploaded images yet. Upload them throw the Media section first.

P.S. Visual composer will be updated in all my themes soon, it’s already scheduled.

How do I set a portfolio page with filter and a blog page? Pages -> Add New, there are only 2 options: Default Template and Page with column.

Thanks

mixey

Hi,

Go to the Appearance->Menu and create custom link which should point to http://your_domain.com/portfolio/

Ok don’t mind my question above. My next question is:

How do you create many portfolio pages (two columns, three columns) like in your example live preview?

In Lightning -> Portfolio Layout, there is only one option.

How do you change the Portfolio URL ? I would like to use “works”, instead of “portfolio.

For example: domain.com/works

Thanks

mixey

Portfolio layouts in the demo site were created with Visual Composer. Create static page and place Teaser grid element to the stage, then, narrow output to wpb_portfolio content type.

open wpb/theme-init.php and change portfolio to works
'rewrite' => array('with_front' => true, 'slug' => 'portfolio' ),

re: composer, rough timeframe?

Also, few probs need help, -when setting a ‘static page’ as home im losing the header slideshow -also changing permalinks to name only doesnt fix the files… ‘page not found’

a little cosmetic, can I make the nav bar static ?

mixey

Hi,

1. We really hope that Visual Composer will be updated on all our themes in 1-1.5 months (I know it sounds too long, but this is really big task).

2. Good find! please open page.php file and edit line #8 to look like this:
if ( ($attached_images && is_front_page() == false) || ( is_front_page() == true && get_option('wpb_homepage_layout') == __("No slider", "wpb") ) ) :
Do the same with page_with_column.php file, line #13

3. Place this in the custom css section in theme options page:

#header { position: absolute; }

Hello again Mixey, i’m working on my site and i set an image as a background, however, i have a problem here. When i resize the window of my browser the image doesn’t scale to the new size. As far as i know, i have to play arround with the css to make it happen.

Can you please facilitate me the code or give me some help to get my background resizable? thanks in advance for your help.

mixey

Take a look at this article: http://www.alistapart.com/articles/supersize-that-background-please/ I hope it will be useful

Hello Mixey! Thanks again for your fast support. I solved (partially) the problem, however i have one doubt. I have this plugin: http://codecanyon.net/item/custom-backgrounds-for-wordpress/121983 and i wish to use it with your theme.

I tried setting some images as background with that plugin but the config on your theme seems to be the one determining the background.

Can you help me out here?

mixey

Send me your site’s url throw my profile page. I’ll take a look.

hey mate - changed the codes as per instructions and still not working. Would the index.php file need changing also?

cheers

mixey

No. Only page and page_with_column.php should be modified. I just checked and it works here.

Settings->Reading as a home page I have set page with images for top slider selected. And then in theme options->home page set “Home page” -> “No slider”. To remove default big slider which rotates Home slides content posts.

Got it now thanks…

We haven’t updated Visual Composer to the latest version yet. But it will be updated soon and update will be free of charge, so no worries about that.

Hi, I have problem with the theme

I update wordpress to 3.4.1 and when I add an image to the visual composer and try to update and save the page it return me Error HTTP 500 (Internal Server Error) , I use “contact form 7” plugin and I notice that this plugin cause me problem like this so I desactivate it but now it append always since I installed WP 3 .4.1 even if the plugin is disactivate. Do I need to rollback to older wordpress ??? or maybe there an update for the theme for this version of WP?

thanks

mixey

Hi,

This theme is working on my demo server (3.4.1) without any problems. So you may want to do some more research on your particular installation.
