I am getting this message: This theme needs permission to write custom styles in css file. Please change directory permission at ( [current_theme]/css/other ) to 744 or higher

I have tried changing styles in the option panel and it doesn’t work. I have also set permission for the custom.css file as well as the [current_theme]/css/other folder. Please help.

averta

Just saw this in the page builder:

Just “Flex Slider” and “Nivo Slider” are supported in page builder. (You can create new slider from “Sliders” section in admin menu)

So how would I add a Revolution Slider to the home page and have it play nicely with page builder?

Thanks!

averta

Hi, first thanks for your purchase. its easy. go to edit page, in “Display Option” section there is a drop down menu labeled “Page slider”. you can select any of sliders right from here.

Default-user

Thanks!

Hi, your theme looks wonderful. I assume I could still make a child theme “if” I felt I needed to in order to make any customisations not included already? Also, can the drop down menus be made transparent from within the theme options? Many thanks David

averta

Hi. thanks for your interest ;) the theme is child ready, but it is not include by now. you can just ask us to send you by email.
about the menu, you can change menu color, but the transparent option is not available in option panel. you can add it by custom css.

Hey guys! Is it possible to get rid of the *website text box for the built in contact form? I’d like it to just be name, email and comment. Thanks!

averta
Of course.

Go to option panel , in General tab, add the following code in “Custom CSS Code” field. Then save all options. That’s it.

 .c_form  #cURL  { display:none; }
If you like the theme and satisfied with our support please rate us. we appreciate that. Good luck
Default-user

Thanks Averta! One more for you… Possible to remove the white box around the active and hover menu items so that its just the text and line that are showing up?

Default-user

by the way. So far, your support has been 5 star!!

averta

thanks;) but you have not rate us so far :)
do you need to remove just the space or also colors?

Default-user

I promise to rate as soon as I’ve got it working the way I want it to! I’d like the white box gone, and maybe just have the line about 10px under the menu. Make sense?

Default-user

Another question….if I dont want one of the portfolio info’s (like Copyright), is it possible to just show the first three and then the project link?

averta

yes , you can change portfolio meta labels. go to option panel , under portfolio setting , you can chanfe the labels. for example change or remove copyright label.

averta

the question about the menu, i think you can hide white space color by this tip. in option panel > header setting , header navigation section, try to set the active and hover color of parent menus to the same color as header background.

Default-user

The header is transparent though…so I dont think that will work. Any way to make the hover and active color transparent?

averta

Please use this snippet.
Let us know if you have any further questions

woohoo! Awesome!

Hello! I have just one more quick question…

If it at all possible to add html to the Top Header Info Bar message area, or can you add text only? If only text, is there a work-around so I can include html in this area?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

averta

Hi. yes you can add html in top header info bar, but very long content is not recommended.

Default-user

Great! Thank you.

3 – yes
4 – of course it is. just check demo sites in retina iPad. it is also retina ready.
5 – i am not sure. but you can use sliders for displaying ads
6 – we have 3 staff here to help you asap. demo content is included in download package.

good luck

Default-user

thanks for the speedy reply, i mean by ads can google ads be displayed on the header or a promo banner>

alos with the video can it play in the slideshow? i didnt see one in action on your site?

is the events on the sidebar and actual event widget with a calendar view? thanks again

averta

you can display ads in sidebar or within content, or you can use third party plugins, but for now i have no idea for displaying ads on header

yes , you can play video in slider. check demo for sliders here : revolution slider , layer slider and cute slider
no, just news is supported, not events

I loaded the demo content for agency, but a few of the elements are not displaying correctly on the iPhone:

- The “Recent News” does not display correctly in portrait UNLESS you first tilt the phone to landscape then back to portrait. http://s13.postimage.org/ljx2n81g7/IMG_4341_copy.png

- The clients list does not scroll correctly in portrait until AFTER you tilt the phone to landscape then back to portrait.

hi. thanks for reporting . we will check and fix this in next update.

Hello,

Just purchased this theme and love it. The only problem I am running into is I can’t figure out how to get the “Leave a Reply” form off of all of the pages. Especially my homepage. Thanks!

averta

hi. thanks for your purchase
hiding comment form :

Just go to the Dashboard, click Pages, click Edit for the page you want, scroll down to the section labeled Discussion, and deselect the Allow comments & Allow trackbacks & pingbacks boxes. Then trash any comments attached to the Page.

video tutorial is also available : http://seehowtwo.com/2009/02/hiding-comments-on-individual-posts-or-pages/

How can you have pagination in the portfolio? or do you just have to keep having a longer and longer page?

averta

hi. you can assign portfolio items to different categories, then display each category on individual page.

Default-user

Ok but would of been much easier if there was just basic pagination.

Default-user

Also it still doesn’t help if you have a lot of portfolio items in one category.

averta

sorry this feature is not available right now.maybe in feature updates

Default-user

That’s fine, the issues with the theme not working on the iPhone are more important to be fixed.

averta

New version is here. please redownload new version. the carousel issue is also fixed.

This theme looks amazing for what I need but my “client” really wants a cursive font in some places. Is there a good sized list of fonts to choose from or is it static? Also, can the full-width main image on the homepage adjust in HEIGHT? She wants it to basically fill the page above the fold. Thank you!

averta

hi. yes in option panel you have option to change typography and choose from google fonts. about the second, i am not sure you can do that. for image sliders just fixed height is supported.(i.e 500px)

I have a couple more problems/issues, but I’ll post this one now because it seems most urgent.

In the “Agency” demo, the site is not responsive in landscape. (This also carried over to my site, which I built off the agency demo) It only captures about 2/3 of the width of the page and the slider does not work. Everything is fine in portrait, but not in landscape. Here’s the screenshot:

http://s12.postimage.org/6n3easyv1/fixed.jpg

Blog/News/Contact are all cut off, as well as some social icons and portfolio icons.

FYI—this is on an iPad 2. Would love to hear how it behaves on newer iPads/tablets. I’ll also be able to test it on the original iPad this weekend, and I’ll post my results here.

Thanks, support team. You guys have been great so far!

averta

We checked the site on ipad 2 and new ipad (3rd). all pages you have mentioned about looks great in both devices. please make sure you have latest version (1.11) of theme installed,and the responsiveness is turned on in your option panel. and don’t forget to clear your browser cache before.
Let me know

Default-user

I have 1.1 installed. I’ll install 1.11 shortly. Is the demo version for Agency version 1.11? Because that is what the screenshot is from: your demo version not my site.

Never mind – I see that you also have a “Products” page. Excellent!

averta

Yes, we introduced a new approach for presenting products in this theme. You have tons of option with our built-in product showcase

But there is no language selector on main page or inner pages. How can i set on my pages the language selector.

averta

we did not test this theme with qtranslate plugin, and we can not support every plugin out there. any way, we will add qtranslate support in future updates.

Which plugin do you support. Before buying this template; there was ’’translation ready’’ property in product features. Can i use this template multilang or no. ?f yes; tell me how can i do it. Thanks

averta

when a theme is translate ready, this means, the theme can be translated to other languages by translating .po file.we included this file in theme. Please note that we are working hard to add more and more features to this theme, so please just be patient for 1-2 days, we will add this feature and will inform you as soon as possible.

Hello again. I bought the theme and have a question. My website will be fully Turkish and I am still translating the PO file. (50% finished) My question is, will be the urls’s changed after uploading the Turkish.PO and MO file? I mean I want to change http://www.mysite.com/faq/loremipsum to http://www.mysite.com/sss/loremipsum

Is it possible? If not with the PO file, how can i solve this issue? With custom css and javascript?

By the way I used some other themes before. This one is really a good one. Very happy to have this. I only need 2 features. 1- Auto update. 2- Exporting admin menu options. Other themes have these options. They give you a encode text which includes your all color settings, typography settings etc and you only copy it. I wish you ll add a feature like this too.

Lastly, adding 1 px shadow makes the typography perfect. I would like to add a 1 px shadow to my texts. This feature would be nice.. Thanks.

averta
Hi. thanks for your purchase.
yes you can. changing faq slug is possible by some modifications in php codes.
in theme folder, go to admin/include/post-types folder and open faq-type.php file. in line 40 you have :
'rewrite' => true,
change it to
'rewrite' => array("slug" => "your_custom_slug_name",'with_front'=>false),
save the file, done.

please do not forget to backup your changes, because if you update your theme you are on risk of losing your changes

about 2 features, we will add theme in future updates.
for text shadow you can add your desire style by custom css.

Let us know if you have further questions

I changed ‘rewrite’ => true, to ‘rewrite’ => array(“slug” => “sss”,’with_front’=>false),

and it is working now. I have a question to you. Does it work if i ll change all ”’rewrite’” parts in post-types folder?

for example can i directly change this ‘rewrite’ => array(‘slug’ => ‘news-tags’ ) to ‘rewrite’ => array(‘slug’ => ‘haber-tagleri’ )

or

‘rewrite’ => array(“slug” => “archive/news”,’with_front’=>false),

to

‘rewrite’ => array(“slug” => “arsiv/haberler”,’with_front’=>false),

And in breadcrumbs all links start with “home”, like Home/Haberler etc

How can I change it to Anasayfa/Haberler?

averta

Yes , that’s it. about home breadcrumbs, let us to add it to translate file in next update. in this case u can change it directly from translate file.
