HI, Is there a changelog for the last update? Thanks !

Hi There My client and i enjoy your theme very much. just wondering if I can have a video that is saved as a media file to be on home page, in place of slider in first content area. I tried pasting the url to the media file in the provided area on the homepage options customizer, however it doesn’t show up as a video. Thanks for any help you can offer. Ryan

Hello Ryan,

First of all thank you for the purchase and I’m really happy you like my work! :)

To be honets I can’t recommend any self hosted video solution unless you have a really robust environment ( using self hosted videos is a very bandwidth demanding solution ) Anyway, I have a tip for you in case you insist to show self hosted video on the homepage. Upload the video into the media library, then add a html5 video code to the mentioned option on the homepage customizer admin page. That option is designed to store the iframe code of YouTube and Vimeo videos, but can handle any other html code as well. You can learn more about html5 videos here.

Regards,
Mark

Really like this theme. It’s virtually perfect for what I’m looking for. And your documentation is another big reason why I’m buying it. Thanks!

Thank you very much for your kind words! :) I’m really happy you like my theme! :)

Such a great theme! Everything is working great, but I have a question about the mobile version. When I look at it on my iPhone 6, I have to rotate my screen to horizontal for everything to show. If I’m holding my phone vertically then the right half of our pictures in the about section are cut off, and the right half of the portfolio is cut off as well. Any solution here? I did search through the comments but couldn’t quite find the answer, so if I missed it and this has already been asked I apologize! Our site is www.robbinscreativefilms.com :) Thank you!

Hello,

Please try to add the following code to the “Custom css” box on the “Theme settings—> Advanced” page:

#about p img { max-width: 100%; height: auto; }

It should help. As far as I know all of the images inside the theme should be responsive, so your issue is a bit weird, but the code above must fix it anyway.

Don’t forget to write in case you need my assistance! :)

Mark

Hi, I love this theme and everything is running perfectly except for the contact link. :( Which is the the most important thing I need up and running. I’m getting this error when I try to visit the link. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘get_option’ (T_STRING) in /home/content/p3pnexwpnas09_data03/56/2737056/html/wp-content/themes/me_v371/template-contact.php on line 61

The site is northerlydesign.com. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly!

Hello,

Thanks for the link. I just sent a test message and the form seem to work, at least it worked well on my side. Anyway, you use the one page version, so the template-contact.php file isn’t important in this case at all. That file is created for the contact page template. The lib/home_sections/contact_section.php creates the layout for the contact section of the scrolling main page.

Okay, thank you.

Same message from my Purchase Account Hi! How can I change the order of appearance in a slider? I have inserted 6 pics already, I want to add two more at the end of the list, but the slide ‘0’ has to be seen in first. In ‘setting’ I changed the number of the ‘slide to start’ but it does not work. Thanks in advance. Anne

Hello Anne,

First of all thank you for the purchase! :) Secondly, it is important to know that slides are special posts. WordPress is a blog engine in default and the rest of its contents are posts. Maybe it sounds weird but even pages and attachments are posts too. So, if you want to change the sequence of the slides, you will need to change its post dates. The Post Types Order plugin also can be a reasonable solution.

Mark

Hi. How well I can run away from the contact? I’m playing everything but can not get it to work. It seems that the error has to do with the script (PHP) to submit the form. Perhaps, I should go into the source code. Thanks.

Hello,

According to the documentation:

“Emailing is one of the most complicated part of webdevelopment. There are several things that may cause the misfunction of the contact form. Fortunately the theme contains two alternative solutions in order to avoid problems with the contact form.

1) If you can’t receive emails, go to the “Theme settings—> Contact form” page and select the “Disable PhpMailer” option. Click “Save Changes” , refresh your site and try out the form. Note: the PhpMailer is the script behind the contact form. It is a widely used and very reliable mail sending php class, but some servers don’t support it. If you select the mentioned option, the theme will use the wp_mail() function instead of the PhpMailer.

2) The theme is compatible with the Contact Form 7 plugin. It is the most popular and most reliable contact form plugin. Install the plugin, create a form ( or use the form that the plugin offers in default ) and paste its shortcode into the “ContactForm 7 shortcode” field on the “Theme settings—> Contact form” page then save the settings. Now the new form should appear on the contact section.

3) If none of the alternatives above work, try to install the Configure SMTP plugin.. Maybe you need to contact to your hosting provider to get the required data ( smtp host, smtp username, smtp password etc… ).”

Beyond the instructions above I would like to mention that there is a tutorial video called “Working with the contact form 7 plugin ( click to watch )” that demonstrates how to set up the mentioned extension. Tutorial videos can be found here.

Mark

Hello, Version 3.7.1 does not allow me to work with the plugin Contact Form 7. I had to go back to version 3.7 to make it work. You can tell me how to fix it to use the latest version? Thank you!

“Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘get_option’ (T_STRING) in /home/phillips/public_html/wp-content/themes/me_v371/template-contact.php on line 61 “

Hello,

The Me 3.7.1 works well with the Contact form 4.2.2. Maybe you have an older version of the plugin installed. Please update CF7 and let me know how it goes. I just made a test and everything went well.

Hello,

I have this theme for almost 3 years now and I still like it a lot!

A few months (after update WP) my categories were gone. The same problem as Orlinea and Sidjay wrote about in this comments-log. Can you help me to fix it?

And a second question: where can I change words in my own language? Like ‘All Projects’, ‘Address’ and ‘Phone’?

Many thanks! Esther

Hello,

It seems you still use a very old version of the theme. In the meantime WordPress changed many things in the core, so your version became outdated. Please download and install the latest version. You can get some upgrade instructions here.

The latest version allows you to re-write the ‘All projects’ string from the admin ( Theme settings—> Portfolio ). The other texts you mentioned can be changed in the lib/home_sections/contact_section.php file. I recommend you to install the WPide plugin since that file cannot be edited via the default theme editor.

Regards,
Mark

Hi “Magna”,

I purchased your great theme, and am just filling it with my content. Now I encountered a problem I can’t solve on my own: On my site (www.fluvicon.com) in the section “technology” there should be a list (itemize/enumeration), but neither bullets nor numbers show. How can I solve this?

Moreover: On your demo site it’s possible to change the font size of the section headings, but I can’t find this option in the “real” theme.

And one more thing: Is it somehow possible to edit the “introduction texts” like all the other texts (lists, alignment, etc.)?

Best regards, Thomas

Hi Thomas,

I’m sorry for the delayed reply, but I’m spending my late summer holidays this week.

Back to the question… Yes, a different menu would be the best solution in this case, this is the reason why the theme has two menu locations: Primary and Secondary. The Primary menu is for the homepage while the Secondary is for all the inner pages like blog pages for instance. Create a new menu, add menu items, then select for the “Secondary” location. The video I mentioned earlier shows how to do that.

Regards,
Mark

How to add image above the Services intro text? I have just updated from very old version 1.2 to the latest 3.7.1. Simple HTML code for image was working fine in 1.2, but not anymore. Thanks!

Hello,

The options are sanitized a bit more strictly in the latest version than they were before. You will need to edit the code in order to allow images in that section again. It isn’t complicated at all and I’ll let you know how to make it happen, but you will need to wait a bit because I’m spending my holidays this week and I have only my tablet in my hotel room, so I cannot write any complicated code at the moment. I’ll be back Monday and send you the code.

Regards,
Mark

Another how-to question: How to remove lines above and below the main navigation? I have removed all instances of border-top/border-bottom in ‘style.css’ and ‘settings.css’, but the lines are still there… Do I have to edit ‘custom_styles.css.php’?

Thanks a lot!

As far as I remember you will need to edit the line 19 in the settings.css file.
