Hello, could you help me with adding tabs and toggles to the theme, please? I have no idea how to do it. Thank you, great theme!

DigitalCavalry

Hello, tabs and toggles are not included in the Modern Elegance theme, (besides single toggle shortcode Hidden Content button, that is presented in Basic Shortcodes section in the demo). Toggle functionality is also available with FAQs page template, but it might be not exactly what you need. This might need some additional coding or using some non Modern Elegance plugin.

Hello

Wanted to install your theme on a new site (which has prestige activated) and upon previewing and/or activating the MElegance theme I get this error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class dcwp_gallery in …/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/ModernElegance/cms/php/cp_widgets.php on line 305

Line 305 gives me just a } and I can’t find anything on google for this. Is it possible to point me into a direction as to why this is happening (or tell me why if you’re sure).

I have other themes installed and they work fine. I also do not have the problem on another site where I installed MElegance.

Hello, you must deactivate the Prestige plugins in Plugins section first, and after this everything should work fine.

If this not helps, then also delete the Prestige plugins files from wp-content/plugins section, but I think this is not needed.

Is it possible to align the main menu to the left? Also, is it possible ti have an XML file with the content of the preview? Thanks, great theme.

Hello,

Nice theme. Bravo :-) But I have a problem with WP 3 .3.2

Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /var/www/clients/client13/web6/web/online_expo/wp-content/themes/ModernElegance/cms/php/cp_controlpanel.php:38) in /var/www/clients/client13/web6/web/online_expo/wp-includes/functions.php on line 861

Could you please tell me what to do or where I can find a release of your theme compatible with WP 3 .3.2 ?

Thank you :-)

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

I have updated my installation to 3.3.2 version and don’t see this problem. Please check wp-content folder. If there don’t exist MElegance_temp please create it manually. This can resolve your problem.

How can I make my latest posts appear on the home page. Sorry, I’ve been trying to figure this out on the PDF file, but it is not clear.

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

You can do this by configuring settings in Modern Elegance Home Tab settings.

Is there a way of turning off breadcrumb navigation?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, there is no option for this. But you can do this by comment dcf_naviTree function from particular page template or just go to cp_functions.php file and comment whole dcf_naviTree function code.

Finally (I hope), how do you add the captcha to the contact form? Thanks! Beautiful theme.

DigitalCavalry

This is not captcha. This is my own solution. Please go to theme general settings and enable one of Enable code authorization.. option.

Hi :-)

I would like to put some styles in the DESC ’s pictures (bold ou italic). It seems to be impossible when I import pictures with shortcodes :( I try in html (without shortcodes) and it works but ma page becomes instable. Do you have a solution ?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, if I understood this correctly you want to add some style tags to the image description defined with Insert Image feature (shortcode). This is not possible because of the functionality of the shortcode. It would be only possible to change the look in CSS for the full description.

I think the easiest way to achieve this is by adding a shortcode image without description and place a formatted description under this shortcode, so the description is not a part of the shortcode. If the image must float to the side and be surrounded with text, you can insert both the image and your additional description in a div container that would be floating to the side.

Hello! I really love this themes and I purchased it ! Congratulation to the Author ! :) Now if I installed correctly my three galleries and accordion, I will need help to install properly a portfolio with two columns, I tried to follow intructions in the “userguide.pdf” but without result. :| I have creating a page “portfolio two colums” and select in Portfolio subsection “Save settings for page option” . I do not understand how to insert images and text and how to works the ID. Could I have an exemple please just to show me the good way. :bashfulcute:

Thank you! ^^

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Thank you! In regards to the portfolio two columns, you just have to create a page with “Portfolio” template and in Custom Page Settings use section “Portfolio” exactly like you described. Then you have to create some posts in “Posts” section and in Custom Post Settings for each post you can add a main image for post, or some content in the content editor at the top. When you edit a post you can also decide in which category it will be placed – on the right side.

If you want to decide which category of posts will be used for Portfolio page, go to Custom Page Settings for page with “Portfolio” template – you can write here the ID number (or numbers) for the category option in Portfolio subsection. The category ID number you can find quickly in MElegance > ID-Help section (and also in Posts > Categories section in URL path for each category). This should help.

Thank you so much for your help! My portfolio works good now! :)

Is it possible to change the white bar of the main menu? I would like to replace it by an image or if it’s not possible at least change the color and I would like to do the same for the body and footer custom a background or change this white color.

I thought maybe it will be possible if I could apply on all pages a transparent background and just only show the background of body and footer.

I hope you understand my request, sorry for my bad English. :confused:

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Not sure if I understand this correctly, but if you want to change the color for main menu bar you can do this in MElegance > Menu section with special options.

Changing the background color for content area and footer (especially content area) might be a bit more complicated and needs changes in the CSS file (common.css located in “css” folder). You can change or remove the background color for content-wrapper ID, but it will need changes also for other classes defined for other features, so all fits well together (this also depends on what theme features you use on your site).

Hello – where can I make updates to the meta text on the Single blog page? For example, I’d like to change the word “Posted By” to just “By.” Where can I do that? I don’t see the option to change that in the single.php file.

Thanks, Erik

DigitalCavalry

Hello, for this part open cp_renderer.php file located in cms/php/ folder and search for function renderBlogPostFull. In this function search for “Posted By” text to change it (line 1499 in this file).

Hello, I just purchased this theme a couple days ago and really want to use it, but I’m having some issues.

Images I’ve uploaded using the NextGen gallery have worked fine. I’ve created a slider and have one gallery so far. However, when I added the “Homepage blog post thumbs” to the Home page the images for my blog posts do not show up (just a box where the image should be and a spinning graphic). No thumbs for anything else works actually because I added the “Recent Blog Posts” widget and checked the box adding a thumb image, but no image at all shows up.

I’ve deactivated every image related plugin I’ve used in other designs I’ve had on my site. I’m running PHP 5 .2.17 and have GD Library. I even updated the thumb.php to the latest version (2.8.10). I’ve CHMODED the Thumb.php and cache folders to 755 (I even tried 777) and still NOTHING is working.

I’m at my wit’s end trying to figure this out. Please help me out if you can.

Hello,

Can you give us link to your site?

Also, I forgot to add above, is there a way to add sliders to other pages as well? I really like the sliders and would like to be able to put different ones on other pages of my site.

Thank you.

DigitalCavalry

Hello, as for the images not visible, looks like it is not the problem of timthumb because it works for the chain slider. Looks like you didn’t added the main images for these posts in Custom Post Settings. When you edit a post, there is an option in Custom Post Settings that allows you to upload main image for this post – this image will be used also o generate thumbnail displayed on homepage.

In regards to the sliders, the homepage sliders (besides chain gallery) can be used only on homepage. On other pages you can use the advanced shortcodes to create some other sliders and galleries – you will see these shortcode in Lightbulb shortcodes list.

Default-user

Ok, thanks so much for that. I kinda knew it was something simple that I was overlooking. Now that I have them working though, I have a question in regards to the main images on the blog page. Is there a way to ONLY use the “main image” for the thumbnails and NOT have them show up on the blog page itself? I’m not a fan of the sizing nor the framing around it and I’d rather like to use the WP image uploader itself to add images to the post. I realize I will need to add an image in the custom page settings for the “main image” section, but I don’t want that image to show up on the blog.

For the time being I’ve set the main image as “small”, which places it next to the title, but I really rather not have it there.

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Yes, there are at least two ways for this. First, the easiest way – you can insert this clearboth shortcode into “Custom image area content:” field in Custom Post Settings (when you edit a post) and for this post the main image will not be displayed (on post page and on main blog page for post with big layout option) – but it will be used for thumbnail for some features. Here is the example of this shortcode to insert:

[dcs_clear h="1" /]

The second way – if you don’t want the main images on all post pages you can make a modification in cp_renderer.php file located in cms/php/ folder (function renderBlogPostFull) and remove the code responsible for displaying the main image on this post page. For main blog page big layout you must do this change in the same file, in function renderBlogPostBigLayout.

Hello! I have finally change all the design of my site! I finally managed to change the entire design of the site. I updated the common.css file. The only thing that does not work is the main menu bar. I would like change the menu bar background color by a background-image but I can’t with the default color in MElegance > Menu options > Menu settings. Whatever I change in # content-wrapper and-menu-wrapper # navigation are null. Could you bring me a solution ? Here is my site: http://clairobscur.webatu.com/

Thanks ! :)

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Nice work! If I understood this correctly, I think for your needs you must make a small change in cp_menu.php file located in cms/php/ folder. Search here for function customCSS at line 228 and you will find here for example the first part:

$out .= '#navigation-wrapper, #content-menu-wrapper { ';
$out .= 'background-color:'.$this->_set['menu_bg_color'].';';
$out .= '} ';

You can change here the second line to this:

$out .= 'background-color:transparent;';

Or just comment (hide) these three lines, and I think it should work.

Then you will probably have to make similar change a bit lower for part of the code commented as ”// submenu items background color”.

I have another issue. Whenever I try to change the Homepage sections display on the Home section of ME I get the little “Wait. Ajax in work…” window, but it doesn’t work. I’ve literally let it “work” for an hour before and it never saved my changes. What can I do to get it working so I can have sections show up on my Homepage how I want them?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, do you still have this problem? I think it might be some temporary connection or server issue, because we didn’t have this kind of problem or reports. If you 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 this.
