Is there a way to change the sub menu background? You can do mouse over and active – but I am not seeing this option.

Let me know if this can be added if its not already there, seems silly its the only thing you can’t edit.

averta

Hi. you can do this by custom css. as you see there is about 15 option just for customizing header and navigation. We can not add option for every pixel of website. We included “custom css code” field in option panel, so simply you can customize the submenu by custom css code.

Pre purchase questions:

1) How many menu does this theme supports? 2) Can you insert multiple widgets horizontally across a page. Say there are four columns in one page, can each column have a different widgets?

Thanks

Phillip

averta

Hi

1 ) If you mean how many navigation area, there is 2 (Header navigation and footer navigation).

2 ) There is footer widget area, you can have 2 , 3 , 4 columns in footer area and add any widget to columns. but i don’t know why you need widgets across pages. because you have page builder , so you can add various elements with different sizes across the page by simple drag and drop.

Hello,

How do I change the size, font and color of different text headings (h1, h2, h3, p, etc.)? The theme options only allow page titles, heading titles, etc., not a good range of control. I’ve tried looking through the .php files and can’t find where to make changes.

Please let me know.

Thanks!

averta

Hi. thanks for your purchase.

you don’t need to edit any php file. you can change heading styles by custom css code. there is a “Custom CSS” field in option panel, you can use it for adding custom css to theme.

Default-user

Thanks!

One more thing. How do I change the colour of the breadcrumbs text without changing my regular text?

The jetpack plugin conflicts with this theme. please try to deactivate the plugin, and the try to install the theme. we will check for making theme compatible with this plugin in future updates.

thanks this worked, i have another question, i cant seem to see the footer or main menu, where do i activate them? i inserted the demo content its all there, but can’t see these things, thanks for quick response

averta

Please read the documentation that is located in download package. all steps are explained in detail.
for menu : go to Appreance > Menus, in Theme Locations and select Header and Footer navigations
for enabling subfooter : go to option panel > footer setting and check enable subfooter.

sorry hopefully last question, where do i edit the map destination and can i edit or add to the contact form?

in the post/pages with list items can i make clickable links here thanks so much

averta

Yes it’s very easy. just create new page, open page builder and add a map element and set destination for map. same for contact form, add contact element in page builder , set options, publish the page.

i really do like this! this might be good for a few of my different clients. the one thing that’s bugging me is that the font size of the dropdown menu is so tiny; i’m assuming it’s really easy in the theme options to adjust the size of the dropdown menu text?

thanks! great work!

averta

Hi. thanks for your interest. in option panel you have many options for customizing header and header menu. you can change menu font size by custom css. it’s just a line of css code.

Hi there,

Pre-purchase questions. a) Is it possible to reposition the blog date icons (to the left of the image for example), colour and make them larger? b) In fact is it possible to make all the icons “Bigger”? c) Talking of ICONS – I want quite unusual Media types so will i get access to a symbols font? d) CSS complexity – ive heard a few people ask things where youve responded with… yes by using a bit of CSS. The thing is Ive just been using another guys theme where virtually everything need CSS and I struggled for a week to either get his advice or searching around for myself. Will these CSS be given as examples so I know what to change and how? I’m a creative designer with only limited tech knowledge and not much time to spend becoming a CSS/DIV genius (if you know what I mean)

Regards Andrew

averta

Hi

a ) you have option to change the color or change the time to small inline date, repositioning and changing size is not and option, you can change it by custom css.

b ) yes, by custom css
c ) we used icon fonts , you have access to almost 220 font icon
d ) well, we included most of essential parts as option in option panel, but we can not make control for every pixel of website, so you need custom css for some customization. Just ask for custom css in our support forum, our staff are there to help you.

http://demo.averta.net/themes/lotus/agency/ Hi my 2nd question would be . For the portfolio front page part, so if i had over 100 designs on the digital art section , how would it be display on the front page? Does it automatically size itself?, have longer scrolling, does the 100 designs shrink or what happen?
averta

Hi. the theme will auto crop the images. you have option to limit the number of images showing on front page. you can also split the images into categories and display each category in separate page

Can you add more than one slider (one under the other for example) for a portfolio entry (it’s main page) and/or add html/text underneath it ?(in addition to the info that’s to the right) – thanks

averta

Hi.

Yes. there is a built-in slider for portfolio page, on the other hand you can add elements under this slider by page builder. so you can add another slider under first one by page builder.
Yes. the same as above, you can add column element (html/text) by page builder under first slider

good luck

Hey thanks for answering my other question. What if each of the portfolio category have more then 1000 pictures in each category , would it still display them all automatically or size them down? Because I wanted to turn my portfolio section to like a weekly events page that I go to thats why.

averta

Hi. yes the page will display all images, but you have option to limit the number of items

I was very interested in this theme, and would like to use it in a professional environment, however…

The theme seems to fail quite badly when checking the HTML5 at http://validator.w3.org. There are many errors in each of the various “versions” of the previews. The most are found in the “Personal” version, which has 68 errors and 10 warnings. Since I found this issue, I decided to also run the CSS validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/), which found 338 errors (once again, using the “Personal” version of the live preview).

My question is… Are you working on an update to resolve these issues? I cannot deploy a site that will not validate, however I do like this theme, and would purchase it if it passed validation. Thank you, and please feel free to let me know when this theme will pass validation, and I will buy it.

averta

Hi

Thanks for your interest.
If you look at html validator’s warnings, you see that all of them are about alt attribute on image tag! its something normal about data entry, there is no failure or something bad. we will fix them on data entry.

about css validator, it is not something handy (developers call it useless). for clarifications, just check www.yahoo.com in css validator or check www.apple.com in validator

The page builder is absolutely useless. It deletes all my content when I save.

Not happy right now.

averta

Hi. please explain more, what do you mean about deletes all your content? no one reported something like this.

Hi. Useless might of been the incorrect word. I apologize. I really love the theme but there is one problem, when i setup a page and push save draft instead of publish it removes everything I did with page builder.

averta

Yes you are right my friend. the is a bug with drafting pages. we are working on lots of updates, and this is one of future updates. we apologize for this. we will do our best to fix this in futures updates as soon as possible. thanks for your patience.

No worries. I was a bit annoyed when my content vanished. I really love the theme though. Great work you did there. Looking forward to the updates.
