Hi I have been using this theme for a while but recently updated the theme to the Dec 12 update. Now one of my plugins no longer functions properly. I contacted the theme plugin developer and he suggests it because of my theme. Can you provide any insight as to what I can do to fix this as the both the plugin and the theme have become an integral part of the site. The site is here: http://thefrontpagefirm.com/photo-gallery/ The plugin is WPPA (WP Photo Albums). The problem is the photos no longer load in the photo album slideshow—Only the first one loads and then no more unless the page is refreshed. I have tried to make other adjustments on the homepage so that it doesn’t look empty by not using the slideshow but it not as functional that way and it can not be done on the photo gallery page so it still shows the real problem.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi,

Had a quick look, I am guessing it is to do with the image loader, probably because the js for the plugin loads at the top of the page. You might be able to fix it by modifying: .js #content img { visibility: hidden; } in style.css on line 82, but this will break the fancy loading of any images elsewhere. Alternatively you might be able to make a css override using something like .slide-frame img{visibility:visible!important;} (and place at the bottom of style.css) this is entirely of the top of my head tho, so might not work ;)

HI, Any reason why the bullets don’t work for items I’m trying to list? Also, the columns short codes are not working. I did just upgrade to WordPress 3.5.1 and I also have updated the theme to the current one.

ThemeShaper

Hi, is the old version removed from the admin? (could be causing a problem) – could you send me a link to a page with the columns / bullets not working?

I did remove the old version as far as I know. What happens is I click the short code “2 columns” from the side panel and nothing happens. :(

Here’s a page where I used asterisks instead of bullets because they wouldn’t work: http://rolfworks.net/pain-relief/

Hi Mary, I checked my test version (running the latest luxuos and WP) and both seemed to be working ok.. see: http://meshaper.com/luxuostest/shortcodes/style-shortcodes/ for bullets and http://meshaper.com/luxuostest/shortcodes/layout-shortcodes/ for columns..

It does sound however like the old version of luxuos might still be in the admin, so make sure it is deleted (not just disabled) as multiple versions create craziness with the latest WP.

As always, worth disabling all plugins as well in case one is creating a js error.

Hey guys, thanks for the theme, nice work and pretty easy to work with once you learn it. I’m trying to create gallery using portrait images, but in default layout (regardless of number of columns), all images are being cropped to show as landscapes (and cropped somewhere in the middle of the image). Is there a way around this? Same result if I try to run it as a portfolio. Thanks guys

ThemeShaper

Hi, glad you are getting on ok with it :)

The image sizes are coded in theme-functions/thshpr_overmind.php on line 492 onwards, which one depends on the gallery used so play around with the numbers :) – you may need to use a plugin called ‘regenerate thumbnails’ after you change the size (not sure if wordpress have fixed this old issue) as it used to be when the images were scaled they wouldn’t be rescaled even if you changed size ;)

Hi! I have what I hope is an easy request. My client wants to be able to put another hyperlink or banner in the header area, about where the search and social icons are, for a marketing campaign. How would I go about doing that? I’d like the link to be right in front of the social icons if possible. Here is the site:

http://www.rolfworks.net

Thank you so much!! :D

ThemeShaper

Hi,

You would need to modify the template directly for this I think. the templates are quite self contained HTML wise, so you will be able to modify just the templates you are using. (e.g. single-column.php in the themes root directory). Unfortunately I can’t advise on modifications like this other than to point you in the right direction with what to modify. If you are familiar with HTML it should be a straightforward job tho :)

To start with, I love the look of Luxuos, so I purchased it. But, being pretty new to wordpress, I’m having some trouble figuring out how exactly to use it.

I wanted to put a slider on a home page, but can’t figure out how to get more than one picture in it. I read the html documentaion, but I don’t see where you can add more than one image.

It seems to me that when you make a slider item what you’re doing is creating, for lack of a better word, a ‘container’ to put stuff in, in my case images. Then, you can refer to a particular slider item by name to use it on a page. But, I don’t know if this is right or not. The documentaion says to upload the images using wordpress image editor to upload your file – singular – and press ‘Set featured image’ link – singular, again. Can you only have one picture per slider? It looks like the demo has more than one, but I can’t figure out how to do it.

As I said, I’m a ‘newbie’ and I’m sure this is something very simple, but I can’t find what it is.

Could you clue me in on how to get more than one picture to ‘slide’?

Thanks, and again, I love the look! Randy

ThemeShaper

Hi, thanks for buying :)

Each slider item is a container for a single image, so create a new slider item for each image. You can add categories to these slider items and the slider can then use a specific category (allowing for different sliders on different pages). So basically, 1 image per slider item will be required to populate the slider :)

Default-user

You’re quite welcome, as I said, I love the look of it and hope I can eventually figure out how to get something similar.

And, thanks for the prompt reply that cleared up that part. I now have 2 categories, but you say this allows for different sliders on different pages. I don’t see where you have a choice of a slider for a page, just to enable slider. I’m sure this is simple to do and I hate to bother you with these questions. But, this is kinda ‘on-the-job-training’ for me and I’m learning as I go. Thanks, Randy

Default-user

Please disregard the last post. I think I found the category dropdown. :)

Default-user

I did find the category drop down. But, every time I change the slider category and update, it goes back to the all category setting. It’s working fine on the home page, but not on the other page I’m trying to put a different slider on. Any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong or not doing at all. Thanks, RM

ThemeShaper

Hi the only thing that springs to mind is the possibility that slides haven’t been assigned to the category you are choosing. Can you confirm there are slides set to the category? – also very much a longshot but make sure there is nothing unusual in the name of the category (just a single word would rule anything out).

Default-user

The category name must have been the problem. The slider category name I was using was Parks&RecSlider. I made a new category called Recreation and now it keeps the recreation as the category when I update the page. Probably the ampersand in the category name was the problem. Thanks for responding so quickly. RM

Hi -

Thinking very seriously about going with your theme but wondering if the slider height can be adjusted to even taller, and the bulk of the home page content can be removed, basically an accordion slider with logo, menu and perhaps some header text as home page? It also looks as though the background image could be changed to a solid color, is that correct?

thanks!

ThemeShaper

Hi, thanks for your interest.

1)Slider height can be set to whatever you like.

2)Yes, you can place whatever you like on the homepage, no problems removing this.

3)Yes, you would need to do this via css. The procedure (quite simple) is specified in this FAQ – http://themeforest.net/item/luxuos/277077/faqs/7893

If you buy and run into any issues just let me know :)

Hi ThemeShaper

I’m trying to do something special with the div#teaser.fouc on the home page of my site. I’d like to put some customer-specific PHP code into that area that is activated only for the home page. But I can’t find where in the template .php files this area is created. Is it done in Javascript somewhere? Can you point me to the right file?

Also, can you advise if there is a way I can search this particular area of the forum to see if you’ve answered any of my questions in the past? The search feature of ThemeForest seems to be completely broken. If I type Luxuous into the search bar, it doesn’t even find the page that lists your theme for sale.

Thanks!! Alison Webmaster for Roy5user

Never mind my last post. Just found it: theme-functions\thshpr_title.php (I had been searching in an incomplete copy of the theme folder.) There doesn’t seem to be any way in this forum to thread this message onto my previous one…?

Hello ThemeShaper

thanks for the wonderful theme I bought from you. Very nice.

Just having one small problem with it.

In the portfolio section I’ve set-up a number of categories and filters that have the same names as the categories. However, the filter only seems to work on some items and inexplicably not on others. I’ve tried deleting both the categories and filters and redoing them to no avail. The portfolio is here: http://d2611038.i199.quadrahosting.com.au/portfolio/

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

ThemeShaper

Hi, bit tricky.. is it possible to rename the categories? – it could easily be a naming clash, but hard to know for sure. Other than this, double check to make sure the filters and categories have items assigned to them (it is easy to miss ;)).

Is there a way to make a top-level item (nav menu item name) so that if you rollover, it will activate the drop-down to submenu pages, but the top-level item won’t itself lead to a page? Thanks, Randy

ThemeShaper

I think the best you can do is using the WP menu manager, create a custom item and use # for the link. This will effectively link the the page the user is on if pressed. There might be a way to make it completely unclickable but I am unaware of it :) (worth a google session if the # isn’t quite what you are after as someone has probably already solved this ;))

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. I went to the menu manager, but for some reason I can’t add a custom item to the main wp menu or the menu that’s in the theme. I get the hand pointer to click on the URL, but it never lets me type anything in to it. I may be wrong in this assumption, but it appears that to be able to use the Custom Links I’ll have to create a new Custom Menu and I don’t think I need to do that or do I? As I’ve said before I’m pretty new at wordpress and I certainly don’t want to mess up the Luxuos theme somehow and have to start over to get to where I’ve already got. :) Thanks, Randy

ThemeShaper

Hi, If there is already a menu there, you should be able to add another item to it. The theme could be using just default pages as a menu but it is unlikely. Check to make sure you don’t have an old version of the theme still in the admin as well (there should only be 1 luxuos in the theme section) as this can cause js errors which might be causing the problem.

You can try creating a new menu and see if that helps, it wont override the current one unless you set it to via the dropdown :)

Default-user

There doesn’t appear to be another menu there. The pages that show up on the nav bar are listed on the left side of the Menu page, but they are greyed out. So, I don’t think there’s a menu there at all. I don’t know how the nav bar is being ‘populated’. I just add a page and it appears on the nav bar.:)

I know there’s only one version of luxuos because I’ve only purchased and installed the one copy of version 1.7.6. I would get you to look at the site, but it’s just on my laptop in the ‘development stage.’

I’m not sure what you mean about ‘overriding the current one unless you set it to via the dropdown’. As I’ve said before, I’m quite new to all of this. :) And, I truly appreciate your time, your help, and especially your patience! Randy

ThemeShaper

Hi, Yep ok, it is using the fallback (pages). Here is a quick guide on how to use the WP menu’s. http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Menu_User_Guide

Default-user

So, does this mean that I ignore the parent/child relationship when creating a page and do it through the custom WP menu I create? Thanks RM

ThemeShaper

Yep, exactly :) – the WP menu just completely overrides the page structure.

Hi ThemeShaper, You did an excellent work with this amazing theme, I purchased it twice for another homepage. But I have a small problem now: Is it possible to set a slider category for the Blog Page? The Blog Page shows all of the Slider-Items what I want to avoid with a category. Thank you!

ThemeShaper

Thanks for buying it twice, really appreciate it :) – This is a very very outside chance it will work.. but try adding:

$slider_category="category";

to line 25 of thshpr_overmind.php i.e. so it looks like:

if($GLOBALS['blog_slider']=="true") { $enable_slider=$GLOBALS['blog_slider']; $slider_size=$GLOBALS['slider_size']; $slider_category="category"; }

replacing category with your chosen category name. I am not sure if if uses the category name, or the slug here (probably the slug) so make sure the slug is the same as the name (i.e. keep the cat name a simple single word).

Default-user
prepic Purchased

Thanks for your reply,
no, unfortunately it dosn’t work. btw I found it in line 41 because there are blank lines between the code. However, this is how it looks like:

if($GLOBALS[‘blog_slider’]==”true”)

{

$enable_slider=$GLOBALS[‘blog_slider’];

$slider_size=$GLOBALS[‘slider_size’];

$slider_category=”home”;

}

then I created a category with the name “home” under “Slider Items -> Categories” and assign it to a Slider-Item. Unfortunately there is no effect and the blog page shows all of the Slider-Items.

ThemeShaper

A little down the page there is a global variable (slider category) you could echo that out and make sure $slider_ category is being picked up. Basically the global slider category variable will be the one the slider is using, so you need to get that updated to match your category.

The above should have worked, however it might be that $slider_category is being overwritten after the above, the above isn’t getting assigned to the global variable, or the global variable is being overwritten.

If ‘home’ is in the global, and the category exists it should work ;)

I tried around few things but didn’t get it. Sorry I don’t know very much about php and don’t understand what to do. Do you mean this line and global variable?
if(isset($slider_category) && $slider_category!="all") { $GLOBALS['slider_category']=$slider_category; }
I tried to replace “all” with my category “home” but no success.
ThemeShaper

Hi, If you don’t know php you won’t be able to do the mod I think. It isn’t really something I can do for you as it goes beyond what I can do with free support I am afraid :(.

I hoped there is an option for that or to add only a single line or something but ok, I understand that. Anyway thank you for your time.

Making progress. :) But, my pages are 7 1/2” when measured on the screen, but the luxuos sample site is 9 1/2”. I’ve looked everywhere I could think of that might have a setting for the width, but can’t find one. How do you adjust the width of the pages? Thanks, Randy

ThemeShaper

The theme is fixed widths measured by the pixel so it shouldn’t be a different width to the demo. The content area might appear smaller (if using a 2 column template) but the actual whole site itself is fixed.

Default-user

Maybe it’s the way my browser on my laptop is set to view. When I zoomed in it looked the same size. Thanks for the reply.

is there a guide to help with how to set things up? I just bought the theme and having trouble getting started. Especially with getting the sliders to work.

ThemeShaper

Hi, thanks for buying, yep, there is documentation provided in the main file you downloaded :)

Default-user

I don’t see it. can you tell me which folder it is in?

ThemeShaper

folder called ‘documentation’ inside the main download. Might be that ThemeForest provide the theme separately now as well, so make sure you downloaded the full zip.

Default-user

it’s not in the download that they provide. i only see one download and its just the theme. do you have the documentation available from a different location?

ThemeShaper

Hi, if you go to your downloads area and click the download button, a dropdown should appear, select ‘main file’.

Question on links. When I’m setting up a link in the page editor, I guess that’s what it’s called, it looks like a link should look – blue and underlined. However, when I view the page, it’s not blue or underlined. When the cursor goes over the link it turns into a finger, but if you don’t do that, you don’t know that there’s a link there. Is there something I’m supposed to do to activate the links so that they look like links? Thanks, Randy

ThemeShaper

Hi Randy, you can modify the link color by changing the css in style.css.

Default-user

I appreciate your quick responses to my questions. They have really helped me. However, this confuses me a little. Does this mean that if a page looks one way when I’m setting it up in the page editor, that it might not look that way when I view it in a browser? And, if it doesn’t then I’ll have to ‘tweak’ something (css, php…)? As I’ve said before, I’m relatively new to wordpress and php files, but I’m learning and you’ve been a big help in that process. Thanks, Randy

Default-user

I tried changing the links in style.css, but nothing happened. I commented out the link info that was in the luxuos style.css and then copied the link info from another style.css that had the links the way I wanted them and pasted this into the luxuos style.css, but nothing changed. The link info that I was changing was under the #content { } section. Is this the right place? Thanks, Randy

ThemeShaper

Hi, I would guess there is another style overriding it below the one you modified. Check out this firebug guide: http://sixrevisions.com/tools/firebug-guide-web-designers/ – or use chrome tools (same thing) – it will let you identify the line in the style.css file that needs to be changed :)

Default-user

Duh! I didn’t even thing about using firebug. I’m having to work on this site off and on and that breaks my ‘groove’ so to speak. I’ll get to work on it a few days straight and things will start falling into place and then, I don’t get to work on it for a few days and when I do get back, I’ve forgotten some of the things I learned earlier. I had been using firebug several weeks back and totally forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me! :) Randy

I am currently using the Luxuos By ThemeShaper Version 1.7.3. When I upload and use an image under ‘Portfolio Items’ I want to remove the ‘enlarge” feature anytime you mouse over the image. I would prefer removing the slide-out feature all together. Is this possible and can you provide detailed instructions? Also some feedback: When I am on a page, post or portfolio I can only edit the page in “text” mode. The visual mode does not work nor does the ability to edit the Status Visibility or Published date of a post. Nothing happens when I click on these hyperlinks under your theme. Thanks

Hi, make sure you have removed any old version of the theme from the admin area.

Hi I am currently using Luxous 1.7.6. I have run into to a few problems since this update:

1. In i.e. the navigation text doesn’t display on the home page. However, it does display in Safari and Firefox.

2. In my portfolio section, when an image is clicked to be enlarged the popup enlarger box comes up with no image in. However if you close it and click it again the image comes up. After that when you close the enlarged image nothing is clickable on the webpage anymore and the page must be refreshed.

you can see what I am talking about here: www.charlespmonroe.com

We cannot flip to html view and select links

If I disable the theme its fine

If I disable all plugins and have the theme active it does the same

Any pointers would be appreciated
