Lovely theme however we want to put our audio already on our server into the jplayer. Is there a way without uploading it twice? Can we just add music to the playlists with direct URLs to .mp3 files?

The link comes up as “Bonk! Ironing out the kinks” Is this the correct URL? Thank you for the quick response!

Hi,

For some reason, the mobile version of the forum is in the jam. I didn’t find the time to figured out the problem. You shouuld be able to view the page on a desktop computer. Sorry about that

Default-user

Not a problem. Thank you for the swift response. Also, how would I find out if an update is available? Does it come up in the theme options?

We’d be very excited to be able to add more to the events ie: Images, Address, Descriptions etc

BrutalDesign

You will have an update notification in your admin panel. ;)

Hello,

Is there a way to increase the thumbnail size that shows up for the [bd_last_posts count=”3”] shortcode?

BrutalDesign

Hi, I am sorry if I can’t help you further, but regarding the amount of support requests I have to handle every day, I can’t provide support for modifications or 3rd party plugins issues. Thanks for your understanding.

Hello,

Thank you! This is the shortcode that populates in the Home Page when your theme is uploaded. It is under the wording “FreshNews”. Didn’t realize that code is 3rd party.

BrutalDesign

Hi, bd_last_post is a shortcode specific to the theme

Default-user

Okay, so to be sure. Is there no way to adjust the thumbnail size?

BrutalDesign

In functions.php at row 76, array(80,80… are the width and height. This thumbnail size is also used for the widget. You will have to re-upload your images after change. Cheers

BrutalDesign,

When I loaded my WordPress backroom to install “Live!” this message came up:

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Can you please help me with this? Thanks!

Hey Brutal, just lovin’ this theme WOW the more I play around with all the customization possibilities! One thing, I am having an issue with the bands MP3s they sent me, and they are all good but in the jsPlayer where I am trying to create a Player, it isn’t allowing .mp3 uploads, it reads loading to 100% but then I keep getting ‘SolitaryMan.mp3 is not an mp3 file.’ (tried many songs). I can embed single song players with the http://filelink.mp3 but need the full Player (great design by the way of everything!) Any idea what this issue could be? I have almost all the site done (and looks GRT on iphone!) THNKS -Sterling

BrutalDesign

Hi,

There is a know issue with the mp3 upload with firefox on mac. Sorry about that.

sterlingwilliam

Well I was in Chrome and now just tried Safari and I am still getting ‘OldFriend.mp3 is not an mp3 file.’ when it definately is a healthy mp3 (have tried numerous ones). What is the workaround? Can I upload via ftp and somehow have jsPlayer recognize the links so I can create the Player. I mean it’s a music theme, I have to have a player for the site asap. Can i email you admin/pass??

sterlingwilliam

Whew IT WORKED!! (I went in thru ftp and replaced those php files and embedding my mp3 links in the jplayer/mp3 section worked perfect!) THNKS

Is there a way to add the site Title or other text to the header? This would appear next to the logo.

I’m trying to add a Title of the site next to a logo in the header.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can do that by editing header.php The content of the right part for the header is from row 94 to 97. You can replace the slider by your own content

I hope it will help

Hello! Hey is your framework completely custom? Cause it’s really great. Is there more documentation on it somewhere?

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Yes, it is completely custom. I found it was the best way to save time in the development process and now the last version is pretty stable and complete. Thx for noticing ;) There is no doc for the framework but it is well commented though

Hello there,

Firstly what a great theme! it’s nice to see someone bringing something useful to the table!

I have a problem with formatting on the home page, like your demo, i would like to setup the blog in the middle of the page with the widgetarea showing up and coming shows.

Http://newsite.thekarlamiltoncollective.com

As you can see from the link, the up and coming shows is still in the middle, i am using column size 7 for the fresh news, and column size 5 for the up and coming shows widget. Can you advise how i would get the shows widget further to the right without bunching up the text?

Cheers

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can use just a widget area with 3 widget, without using column and use the “recent posts with thumbnails” instead of the bd_last posts shortcode.

In fact, you can’t put a widget area in a column, because widget areas are already divided in 3 columns.

In the demo, I used the default homepage template, put the [bd_last_posts] shortcode as content, and paste the upcoming show widget in a homepage sidebar.

I hope it will help

Default-user

Ah i see my mistake. in the demo, the initial paragraph, the store and discography are in the top holder box! I was trying to do it all in the main page. Thanks again for your help.

Salut,

Après avoir utilisé music pro qui est vraiment très bien fait, je suis intéréssé par Live! J’ai une petite question : le thème est “translation ready”. Dans le cas où je met le site en plusieurs langues, y-a-t-il une zone prévu pour le choix du langage (une zone avec des petits drapeaux par exemple ?).

Merci et bravo pour ce framework bien foutu !

BrutalDesign

Bonjour,

Pour que l’utilisateur puisse avoir le choix de la langue il faut un plugin comme qTranslate je crois ou WPML .

Les fichier de langues servent à traduire le site facilement (le fichier fr est inclus) mais de permette pas de switcher la langue

Cordialement.

Hey BD, I finished the site I bought the theme for (the Band LUVS) absolutely AMAZIN and was able to customize every page with diff images and headers THNK U! However the music player still won’t play in firefox (I took out the code you suggested… I found an OGG converter, uploaded those to go with each mp3 and Still can’t get any music to play in firefox http://www.recklessinvegas.com/riv-originals/ Aren’t others having this issue?? PLZ Help as they need fixed ASAP

BrutalDesign

If the player doesn’t play in firefox, it can be caused be the ogg encoding. Be sure to enconde your file with the following settings: Ogg Vorbis 44100 Hz; Stereo; Quality – 4.00 ;

... Just checked and to me it works on chrome and safari. Maybe delete your browser cache

Hi, I see you remove the date, category and tags on your site? Also, on the admin side you remove each category and tags attached to each post. Greetings
