Hi! I would like to know if this template is Localizable?

Basically i need this in the Greek language. Is this possible?

Thank you

Hello, yes, Modern Elegance is translation ready and has *.po files.

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

how do i get this?? I pull all the files that downloaded for the theme into a zip file and still giving me this error message?

Thank you!

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

You need to unpack the ZIP file downloaded from Theme Forest and then upload only “ModernElegance” folder (that is located inside in “theme” folder) into wp-content/themes/ on your server. After this you should be able to activate the theme without problem in Appearance > Themes. This should help.

This helped!! thank you..

is there a way that i can edit where it says “Modern Elegance A wordpress theme with class” I thought you’d be able to edit it once it was in wordpress..

thank you!

DigitalCavalry

Can you describe a bit more where you want to edit this name? If you mean the screenshot in Appearance > Themes – this file screenshot.png is located in theme folder.

Default-user

The title at the top of the web page says “Modern Elegance” Can i change that to say “Rustic Decor and More” (my companies name) with the same font?

DigitalCavalry

I think you want to have a similar logo image with the same font, but some other text. For this you must create a new logo image with your name. I can send you a PSD file for the logo that might help you a bit with this part – for this please send us an email using contact form in our Theme Forest profile and I will send you back the file. The font used for the logo is named Edwardian Script.

How can i change the background? I have the folder in wordpress, however i didn’t end up uploading it with my theme because it was in a separate folder?

Thank you

DigitalCavalry

You can upload any background for your site in the WordPress admin panel in section MElegance > General > Theme global core settings. Here you will find option for the background upload, with the “Select background” button and other settings. You can use here background images provided with the theme in this separate folder, or any other background or pattern you would like to use for your site.

Also, for each page and post you will find individual background settings that allow you to add additional background for selected page/post (when you edit a page in “Pages” section, or post in “Posts” section)

Hello,

I am interested in this theme but I want to know if it is compatible with wordpress 3.5.

Thank you,

Weston

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Yes, theme is compatible with 3.5 version, works fine without any problems. But it need small update for one option. Version 3.5 have changed media buttons display model, and small change in the code is needed. I will upload the update in next days.

Please DC, Review my 3 emails concerning my three sites tests on WP3.5 . The theme breaks in all of them. Seems ME is not compatible with WP 3.5

Thanks AB

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Looks like it is not a problem of MElegance and WP 3.5, because it works fine when I check it on our test sites and we also didn’t get any reports about this problem. It might be some non MElegance plugin, I just sent you an email.

Hi there. I am having a bit of trouble with this theme. I have tried adding my logo to the site, and followed the instructions in the PDF, and no matter what I do, the logo will not show up on the site. Can you please help me? capron.bladeresources.com Also, at first I was successfully adding photos to the progressive slider. Now if I add any additional photos to the slider, the thumbnail appears broken and there is no slider image. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

JoAnna

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

As for the logo, looks like you uploaded a big image, much bigger than the logo container defined in the logo settings. The logo size in settings defines only the size of the logo container, so you need to upload a small image that will fit to your needs or increase the size of the logo width and height in section MElegance > General > Logo Settings.

As for the Progress Slider, I am not sure what can be wrong. You can check the right for “MElegance_temp” folder located directly in “wp-content” folder on your server – it should be allowed to save new files in this folder. And then create a completely new slide with the “Add New Slide” option and check if the problem still exist. If this won’t help, maybe you can send us access to your WP admin (using contact form in our Theme Forest profile) and I will take a look on this.

Default-user

Thank you, Digital Cavalry. I resized the logo to 300×183px, uploaded it and adjusted the settings to read the same, and the logo still does not appear. I also tried your suggestion on the progress slider and have had no luck. I will send you a direct message via the Theme Forest profile with my WP admin information. Would you mind taking a look?

Thanks!

Also, I will update something on my WP control panel, and it will only appear in Google Chrome. It won’t appear in IE or Mozilla Firefox and I have cleared the cache… Sometimes it won’t even appear in Chrome. For example, when I view the site in Chrome, I see the background image that I uploaded. However, if i view it in a different browser, no background is shown.

Thanks!

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

I just sent you an email with a response to previous questions. In regards to your last comment, I think it might be something to do with the Super Cache plugin. You can try to deactivate it and see if the problem will still be on your installation. If this won’t help, you can also make (if its possible) a completely new test WP installation with the theme – just to check if there will be the same problem and see if it is something with this WP installation.

Default-user

Thank you! You have been so helpful! I fixed the issue. I do have one last question: How do I center the menu, so that it’s not left aligned? And how do I edit the content of the “about” portion above the footer?

DigitalCavalry

Great it helped. As for the menu, you can center it by changing one value in common.css file located in “css” folder. Search for .sf-menu class in this file (it is in the last section at the bottom of the file) and change right:0px; to for example right:150px; (depends on your menu items width).

In regards to the “About” part on footer – go to MElegance > General > Footer and here you can edit this part in “Footer links content:” textarea.

Default-user

I logged in to my filezilla, and found the CSS folder, however, I can’t find .sf-menu. When I try and open any of the files, my computer dings and doesn’t allow it. What am I doing wrong? On the “About” section, when I go to MElegance>General>Footer>FooterLinks, there is no text to edit on the about. there is code that I have edited that effects the menu on the right hand side of the footer, but not the “about” on the left hand side of the footer. And I have finally fixed my logo, however, even after adjusting the height and padding, there isn’t enough padding to the top of it. The logo goes off the page. Can you please help? capron.bladeresources.com

DigitalCavalry

You need to copy this file on your disc and edit the common.css file, then upload it on your server again into the “css” folder located inside the theme folder, to replace the old /css/common.css version.

As for the Footer “About” part, looks like you already changed it to some quote, so I think you found this.

In regards to the menu, you need to change the height of header also if you logo is higher than the header height value – I already changed this for you when I was again looking at your settings, so the full logo is visible (the change was made in section: MElegance > General > Header Settings for this parameter, so you can change it to some other bigger value if more space is needed).

I finally managed to launch the theme and do some basic customizations. Woo hoo! Now I’d like to know if there’s a way to change the text font (I’d prefer a more serif’d look). I’ve already changed the headers, but how do I alter the body text?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, in regards to the body font, for this you can open common.css file located in “css” folder and change the font defined for the body almost at the top of the file – this will do it for most sections of the site. Some features might need also additional change in the common.css in different section, so you will have to search for this specific section CSS in the same file. If you want to replace this font for all section you can just search for “Verdana” text and change it for each finding.

Hello,

Thank you so much for such a beautiful theme but I have a problem with it: My blog template does not work it displays as blank. If i use the categories it’s fine and single post is also fine… but the main blog page is always blank – please help!

Here is my website http://www.blooming-emptiness.com/ the blog page is under the main menu item “invitation” here is the direct link: http://www.blooming-emptiness.com/invitation/

Maybe it’s something with (blog.php) please let me know how to fix this. Greatly appreciated, Anya

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Is this a page with Blog page template? You can check first the template setting and then also if for this page – in Custom Page Settings – there is something selected in section Blog Template. You can select there option “Save settings for this page”, but maybe there is some category ID number defined that doesn’t exist. But I think you should still see the page title.

You can check also your blog.php file located in the main theme folder. Maybe something is wrong with this file, so you can redownload the ZIP file from Theme Forest with the theme and replace this blog.php file on your server.

Another thing – check in Settings > Reading if there is something selected for “Posts page”. This option should be empty – without any page selected.

If you use any non MElegance plugins besides NGG, you can try to deactivate them all and check if this helps.

If none of the above will help, maybe you can send us access to your WP admin (on email, using contact form in our TF profile) and I will take a look on this.

Default-user

Thanks it was this: Settings > Reading if there is something selected for “Posts page”. This option should be empty – without any page selected.

Hi there, where can I change the Header Icons to open in the same window instead of blank?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, this can be changed with a simple modification in the code. Open cp_general.php file located in cms/php/ folder and search for this text “renderHeaderIcons”. At the end of this function you will see the anchor link code and you need to remove this part:

target="_blank"

And that’s all.

I really need help, maybe i found a bug. When I tried to use the ID page numbers for excluding them from one gallery list, this one suddendly blocked every gallery listed in it and there’s no way to make it function again. I also tried to delete the gallery list page and to make a new one but no luck: using the same name or a different one for the gallery list page, it displays only a blank page without any gallery. Maybe something is gone corrupted ???

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

In Modern Elegance, for the Gallery List, if you want to specify galleries by ID, you need to place the ID number of NGG gallery, not page ID number. The ID of NGG gallery you will find in Gallery > Manage Gallery section.

But, if you will clear this field for Gallery List page, you should again see all galleries displayed – I am not sure, did you tried to clear the ID list fields in GALLERY LIST PAGE TEMPLATE options and still nothing is displayed?

If you will still have this problem, maybe you can send us access to your WP admin (using contact form in our Theme Forest profile) and I will take a look on the setup.

Yes I tried to clear the ID list fields in GALLERY LIST PAGE TEMPLATE options and still nothing is displayed anymore but, before, it worked so smoothly and perfectly….I’m contacting by mail

Hi! I’m trying to my my site to another hosting. I ziped all files and made backup of db(with changing previous paths to new domain). But when i open new site – front page is empty: text and logo set by default. Permission to the folders correct. How to correctle move existing site to the new domain? Please help me

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

I am not sure how you have moved the database and I don’t have a fill instruction for this operation, but all the CMS settings are saved in the database in wp_options table – records with the theme settings start with MODERNELEGANCE_ name. If you want to move all the settings you must copy also the database data where these settings are saved. Plus, I think you will need to set page with Homepage template as “A Static Page: Front Page” in Settings > Reading on the new installation.

Hi! I bought this cool theme and I would like to know how to obtain exactly the same layout of the home page main post “Welcome in the Age of Modern Elegance!”.

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

For this you can add some content to your page with “Homepage” template, so in the editor you place content like for example:

<h2>Welcome in Modern Elegance!</h2>

In vulputate molestie magna...

Then go to section MElegance > Home > Homepage Content. Here you can select two options: Display homepage content and Display homepage content column and sidebar and for option Select page with content you choose your Homepage plus select the checkbox located right below. If needed, you can also use option Section header text for this section.

This should help, but let us know if you will have any questions to this part.

Also, make sure you selected this page with “Homepage” template for “A Static Page: Front Page” option in Settings > Reading. Option Posts Page must stay empty.

Hi,

I moved my website to another hosting company. And now I cant use gallery and gallery list functions. it tries to open photos on gallery list page. but nothing happens. what should I do?

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Did you installed the NextGEN gallery plugin on this new WP installation? From your description it looks like the NGG with the galleries is missing in your new destination.

alexkillioglu

yes I installed it and it’s up to date. but I cant use it. http://mekanara.webfactional.com/tms/foto-galeri/ is my test website you can check it on

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

You mean on this particular page from the link? I think it might be problem with timthumb / server settings. If you defined the preview images for each gallery (you can do this for each gallery in NGG options) then you can check permission settings for “cache” folder located inside the theme folder. You can check if it is allowed to save files in this folder and if not change the permission settings.

--------------------

Additionally, you can also redownload the latest version of timthumb file from this page:

http://code.google.com/p/timthumb/source/browse/trunk/timthumb.php?spec=svn213&r=213

To download it you can save the content under the link “View raw file” located on the right side of this page. Then you must change the name from timthumb.php to thumb.php and insert it into theme folder on server. And you should also delete all files from “cache” folder located inside the “ModernElegance” theme folder, and that’s all.

I have two questions: 1. I am trying to insert a photo onto a page in my website amongst text and nothing I am doing seems to work. I have inserted galleries on the appropriate pages, but I just want to add a photo of my site’s author next to his bio and it never shows. 2. I have inserted a bible quote in my footer, and had a few more to add. I wondered if I could set it up for the quotes to interchange? Kind of in a slideshow format????

Thank you so much. It’s an amazing theme!

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

1. I just took a look into your WP admin – used the access you sent us – and I see that image is not added into content after you click on the Insert into… option. I checked this on my test installation that is also running on WP 3.5.1 and it works fine for me, so it looks like it is something on your WP installation, but hard to say what. Did you made any changes in the code on your own? Did it worked earlier for you?

2. For this some shortcode or widget would be needed that will work as a slider / fader with the text content. For text you would need to add some new feature or use some non theme plugin maybe that has this kind of functionality.

Thank you!

Default-user

Thank you, DigitalCalvary. No, I didn’t edit the code, and it never worked for me. I have never been able to see the “visual” side of the editor, and never successfully been able to add a photo. What do you suggest I do? Thanks – I’ll try a widget/shortcode/plugin…!

DigitalCavalry

When I was testing the Add Media option on your installation it was not working also for the Text (HTML) editor. You can try to test this by switching to the default theme and see if the option Add Media works properly. If this helps, you can try to download again the ZIP file with the theme and reupload all theme files on server (you don’t have to reupload “cache” folder) – if you didn’t made any changes in the code on your own. This should help.

Default-user

Hi DigitalCalvary – I reset the theme back to the default theme, and I wasn’t even able to view the visual editor. It was greyed out and only allowed me to view the text editor. When I tried to add media, it did not work. What do you suggest I do? Thank you so much,

JoAnna

DigitalCavalry

Hello, you can’t view the editor also with default theme? If yes, then it looks like it is something on your WP installation or maybe some plugin is causing this. Did you deactivated also all the plugins in section “Plugins” with the default theme and then tested how it works?

Default-user

If i re-install Wordpress, will it delete all that I have worked to build? I deactivated a few of the plug-ins and no change. I am afraid to deactivate the NextGen Gallery plug in because i don’t want to loose the work i’ve done in the galleries.

DigitalCavalry

Hello, no you don’t need to remove NGG plugin. Actually I think it is not related to the Next Gen Gallery because it was tested, but you can always deactivate the plugin in section Plugins if needed.

Did you deactivated all the non theme plugins at once besides NGG plugin and you still had this problem also with default theme? I am not sure now what can be the problem, because when I checked your site now using the access you sent us earlier I see the Visual editor and Text editor buttons, but I don’t see the Lightbulb. Maybe you mean the missing Lightbulb and Insert Image icons, not the Visual editor? I will send you an email about this in a second now that should help you if this is the problem.
