Hi, elemis.

My locus theme is version 2.7 . How can i update it?

elemis

Hi,

With version 3 the theme was coded from scratch and if you install the latest version, you will need to create your posts/pages from scratch or edit some of the existing ones. Please download the theme package from the Downloads page on Themeforest and check the help documentation for setting up the theme to have an idea of the new version. If you are willing to update, then you can install the latest version as a new theme and install.

Default-user

Thanks for ur reply. Will install the latest version.

Btw, can i put video on slider, rather than images?

elemis

Yes, you can put videos using video shortcode:

[slider]
[slide img="IMAGE LINK"]
[svideo]VIDEO EMBED CODE[/svideo]
[/slider]

Hi elemis,

I would like to add a text in the slider of this theme same as it’s done in here http://theme.semicolonweb.com/pageflow/

Are you willing to do that? How much would that cost me?

elemis

Hi,

Our support includes fixing bugs and answering questions related to problems with the included features in our items. Debugging or making custom modifications to items is unfortunately not part of our support. You can use a plugin to have a slider with such caption support or find a freelance developer through freelanceswitch.com

Can you suggest a plugin link with a slider I can use? Also, if i use this solution, will I be able to keep the white borders of the slider to keep it matching the theme?

hi

I have a few questions:

1. Navigation menu: how/where to change colour of background (from white to grey for example)?

2. contact form: a) I would like to change the position of the form from left to the right. An put test on the left. Where to change this settings?

b) Where to add/ delete rows, change title in contact form (for example to delete Subject and insert Phone number)?

c) Where to customize the part of how email body looks like when somebody send me a message using contact form?

3. Gap between pages: how can I decrease the gap between pages? It looks very big hen you just scroll the website?

Thanks

elemis

Hi,

1. You can change the color of the menu background with the following css:

ul.menu {
background-color: #FFF;
}

2. a) You need to edit the Contact Page Template part in index.php

b) You can find the form fields under Begin Form in the same part.

c) Sorry not sure if we understand this request.

3. The default value of space between pages is 300px. But you can change it by pasting the below code into “Custom CSS” in theme options panel and decreasing the value:

#home, #mini-services, .section-container, ul.gallery, #news-wrapper, #contact-wrapper {
    margin-bottom: 300px;
}

thank you for fast response.

regarding 2c: at the moment when someone submits email using contact form I receive the following email.

Name: xxx Email: xxx Subject: xxx Message: xxx

I would like to have Subject not in email body but in Subject line. Also would like to make this email looks a bit more fancy (with html table inserted)

elemis

Hi,

Unfortunately there are no direct options for these requests. You will need to make the customizations to the admin/form-handler.php file.

hi

1. I am having problems of changing the background image. No matter what image I want to put I always and up seeing the grey background image from light skin. Where/what do I need to write to change background image?

2. I changed the space between pages but the space after contact still remain unchanged. How to change its setting?

Thanks

elemis

Hi,

1. Please make sure you use the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel for the background change.

2. Can you please provide your website URL so we can take a closer look?

Hi have more questions:

1. how to center the whole webpage. At the moment it seems a bit off center (slightly to the left)?

2. contact form: success message comes in green font colour. Where to change this colour? Same for “Required”?

thanks

elemis

Hi,

1. The webpage should be centered properly. If you provide your website link we can take a closer look.

2. You need to edit the following colors. Please make sure you use the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel for css custormizations:

Class for success message:
.form-container .response {
color: #4d8c74;
}
Class for required:
.forms span.error {
color: #c43131;
}

I cant see my website in Internet Explorer it says: “It looks like you are still using Internet Explorer 7 or earlier, which is not supported by this website. Please update to a cooler browser:”

I use the latest version of IE – 10.

elemis

Hi,

We use a plugin for this functionality and it seems not to work properly when WP Super Cache plugin is used at the same time. The developer says he will fix it asap. Until then you can remove the function from functions.php file line 17:

include_once (INCLUDES_PATH  . 'stop-ie6/stopie6.php');

Hi, can I add the Facebook Like Button and Pinterest Button beside my each portfolio images after popping up?

elemis

Sorry but there is no direct option for this. You will need to add those buttons manually. Also since this is a onepage theme, the portfolio posts don’t have individual pages, so share links will all need to direct to homepage.

Default-user

Sorry, I mean the portfolio images. It means that when I clicked on each portfolio photo, the image will be popped up. The post title will be displayed under the image. So, is it possible to add a tiny “Like” or “Pinterest” beside the post title? Thanks

elemis

You need to edit the fancybox description part in functions/locus-portfolio.php and add the button codes.

Default-user

Thanks for your reply. I have found that the code of the button is: would you mind to teach me which part that should I add it in?

Default-user

a class=”addthis_button_pinterest_pinit”

elemis

Hi,

It can be inside the fancybox-desc div so the button will appear under the title, next to the image description.

Hi, I have added the , one-third and one-third last shortcodes on the header and works good. but on the mobile or the responsive page they are all merged together. How do I control the mobile or responsive display settings. A simple

#header .one-third,
#header .one-third.last {

Header must have a background image, so when you scroll the page, the header stays on top of the content. Otherwise you will see content roll over header. But the issue you want to fix should be solved with z-index. If you can give us permission to your wordpress admin we can take a closer look. You can send the credentials to us via the contact form on our profile page.

Hi Elemis,

In the past 24 hours my server has been hijacked and has been sending out A LOT spam. I have received over 50,000 failure notices, with another 70,000 messages stuck in the mail queue!

I host a couple dozen web sites. So I looked at which domain was using the most traffic, and it turned out to by my own business domain (which uses the Locus theme).

I temporarily suspended my domain, and after a while I stopped receiving failure notices. I had been receiving a several a minute, but I haven’t received a single one in almost 2 1/2 hours.

I’m suspecting that the contact form that is included in the Locus theme may have become exploited by spammers.

The form doesn’t appear to rely on any third-party plugins… is that correct?

Thoughts?

elemis

Hi,

This is the first time we receive such a feedback. Not sure why it should happen. The form doesn’t rely on any third-party plugins. You can use Contact Form 7 plugin which has captcha support instead of our form maybe?

hi again

I would like to put logo on the left hand side and text on the right hand size of the header (without making it one long jpeg image/logo).

Can you please tell me how would I do that?

Thanks

elemis

Hi,

You need to edit header.php. Insert a div with your next right after the logo (just before the menu). Make this div float right and the logo float left.

Hi Elemis,

Whenever I link a text, the text color becomes different than the color of a text that’s without a link. I’m using the following code in the contact form for e-mail but my e-mail is appearing in different color than the rest of the text because I have a URL link. How can I have the text linked while having the same color as any other text in the theme?

    Hi Elemis,

    As you see in my website oussamaharb.com I modified the caption format on the pictures of the slider, they look good on computers, however, when I surf the website on mobile, the caption is not being responsive as it was before my modification. How to fix it and make the caption responsive with the current format?

    You need to reduce the size of the captions in the media-queries.css for different screen sizes.

    I don’t know how to do that I thought it came with the theme since the theme is responsive. Can you help please?

    elemis

    Yes, the caption is responsive in the original version. But since you have customized it, you will need to make your customized version responsive. You need to edit the style (width, font-size, and maybe position) of .flex-caption > p and .flex-caption > h1 in media-queries.css

    Hi

    Every time I go to my site I get a message saying I’m not using an updated browser, yet I’m using firefox. This suddenly just happened? How do I fix this.

    I have deactivated the WP Super Cache and deleted the above PHP code. I am still getting the following message ” It looks like you are still using IE 7 or earlier. Please update browser.” I get this message in every browser I use. It’s embarrassing when I can’t send my link to a client.

    Weird. The issue should have been fixed after deleting the linke from functions.php. If you can give us permission to your Wordpress admin we can take a closer look. You can send the credentials to us via the contact form on our profile page.

    This is problem filter “wedding floristry” and “funeral floristry”

    elemis

    Hi,

    That is because the two filters have the same word “floristry”. You can either use one word for each,”wedding” and “funeral”. Or make them seem as one word using a dash. “wedding-floristry” and “funeral-floristry”

    I need to make the pace slower

    elemis

    Hi,

    You will need to change the slideshow value in style/js/custom.js by editing on line 213:

    $(window).load(function() {
          $('.flexslider').flexslider({
          slideshowSpeed: 5000, 
          pauseOnAction: false,
          slideshow: false
          });
    });

    The value you enter is the milliseconds between each slide, so if you increase the value the slides will change slower.
