Hi, thanks for this nice theme. How can we add advanced custom fields? i’ve noticed that there is a folder named “afc” in the theme directory, but there is none plugin to activate nor AFC option in the backend menu. Another thing, for upgrading production site i just upload the new files overwriting the older ones?

Regards

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Why do you need Custom Fields ?

We added all the fields we needed.

For example, i want to display youtube videos as posts (i’ve created a category for that) and i need a custom field to save youtube’s video-id, like ‘youtube_id’ or something. As far, I’ve manage to edit the code from blog and single_post templates, but i want to make a default AFC for video’s ids (selectable from dropdown list) instead of manually creating one in each post.

thnx

Hey Guys,

My boss bought this theme, which is very beautiful. However, I have had to install it twice on our server, and I am still unable to upload photos! When I click the upload/insert button on any page/post, nothing happens.

Help!! I’m on a tight deadline and need to get this done.

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

This is an Wordpress issue, Media Upload is an Native Wordpress Feature.

However check the file permissions, http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions and see if it work’s.

Otherwise if you still have this issue after applying changes and configuring the server properly, send us the Server Credentials and Wordpress Credentials than we will check this for you.

Man this theme is so buggy :) It seems rushed out :(

Question: how do I link the services on the homepage to their respective pages. The services menu on the homepage doesn’t do anything. I’d like to link them, so that if you click them you get the info.

I have a list of issues: -Logo is messed up in safari and Chrome. Where do i fix it? -Sometimes the site looks messed up upon loading. IT fixes itself when i resize the window but that shouldn’t happen. Need a fix for this plz. (mostly when you click logo to go back to home) see: http://verstuur.me/Schermafbeelding%202012-12-17%20om%2011.05.31.png -Custom menu widget in footer has a different border to other widgets.

Also: If you enter new colors it doesn’t change the borders on some widget boxes and it doesn’t change the boxcolors on the services widget. I think you would like to fix that in a next update.

I have some coding experience so tell me where to look.

take a look at www.moveer.nl

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Services on the home page are linked to it’s Service page, but i think you don’t have the latest Modernist Update.

Also the Logo is fixed, otherwise most of the Theme’s has Fixed Size logo but we made possible to add any logo size and it get’s centered by it self.

I don’t see there any case where color does not work, could you send us the link.

So please grab the latest Modernist update, update the theme, if any problem happens again please send us the Wordpress Credentials, and please us the Form from our panel.

How about the projects page slider? the code under script.js is commented (Uncommenting it didn’t worked), there’s no slider controls (next, prev arrows) and also the next-previous project links on single_project post template seems to get values only between the “number_of_posts” option (wordpress general option)

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

There where a slider, but we removed it because we changed the Layout on project’s, so you have a Slider on Homescreen on Mobile Version and a Slider in Project Single Page.

Hi Umbrella Team: I need to translate the webpage in multi-language… this template support any multi-language plugin? If so, which could be used? If you do not support any, that might do to the site in multiple languages?

Thanks

UmbrellaStudios

We did not tried any of them but http://wpml.org/ could do the trick, otherwise i’m not sure if they support Custom Fields Translation any of the Plugins out there.

You can use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/qtranslate/ it supports shortcodes for Translation.

The menu where you need to put the flags it’s up to you, but if you want we are available for freelance, so we can set-up extra things out of the theme’s we ship out.

I tried qtranslate plugin… and it works perfectly, but your custom fields issue, I have no option to put the two languages??. How could I do this?

UmbrellaStudios

That is the issue with those plugin’s as i told you they don’t support support custom field’s, only the WSYIWYG Editor.

To make this possible, we should add custom field’s for each language and it is a complex development process.

So all you can do is, use qtranslate shortcode’s in Custom Field’s but you need again some Code Edit’s to make this work.

Using qTranslate shortcodes it is something similar to this : <!-:en->English text<!-:-> .

But you should also use do_shortcode to make this work everywhere where Custom Fields are used.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/do_shortcode

I hope all this will help you solving you’re issue.

After spending a whole afternoon working on this theme, I’m pretty disappointed…

The display of the site is quite different from the preview shown on your website :

- the frames on the “about us” page do not fit in the page width, there’s scroll bars all over the screen ;

- the vertical tabs on the “services” page have no margins on the sides, they’re really to wide, it looks “empty” ;

- and so on…

Is it possible to get assistance (or a refund, since we’ll probably not be able to develop the site our client order us using this template) ?

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

If you want to set-up the theme as we got on preview, we can help you just send us the Wordpress Credentials, but we don’t support any custom editing because we’re selling our product with the idea and the only way to keep the web-site dynamic is using the Wordpress UI (Backend) (don’t edit anything like php scripts, js files ans html markup unless you know what you’re doing) and you have a full list of documentation how to achieve + you have the DEMO XML File included.

We will enjoy helping you, but keep in mind we will support only Native stuff.

If you added stuff which messed the Theme that is up to you.

PS : Grab the latest Update and check the changelog, there many things fixed and many feature’s plus there.

Re-funding is another issue which Themeforest should handle there.

Hello,

When I add widgets to the footer, the spacing gets messed up. The first widget always looks ok but if I add a second widget, there is no top padding or margin so it butts up against the background image on the page. It also moves the copyright information up on the page. Any ideas on how to fix this? I have upgraded to the latest version of the theme.

Here is an example. I’d like these three to show side by side – http://goo.gl/yIacM

Thanks

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

We tested only our Widget’s and the Wordpress one, and they worked fine. But we will take our time to fix that.

Bests

Ok, yes, it would be very beneficial to be able to use other widgets in that area. Also, the blogroll doesn’t actually take the latest blog posts. It only shows links. This should be fixed to show the latest blog posts.

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

The Blogroll widget outputs only Link from Wordpress Link’s menu, so latest post’s as a widget is not supplied by Architect, but you can try to search for another Widget it should be one which does the job.

Yes, the Recent Posts widget shows the latest blogs but the formatting is way off for those. This is the first template that I have ever used where I was not allowed to use widgets other than those created by the developer. Is there a fix coming for that?

UmbrellaStudios

Yes for sure, it is queued to development it should be next week, i just replied to you to help with the Blogroll widget, otherwise the Widget’s problem is being fixed.

Can I remove the recent projects section from the home page? Is that kind of customization possible throughout the theme or are the pages static?

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

No you can’t from the theme Panel, but we can do this for you just send us the Wordpress and Server Logins by using the contact form from our Panel.

So far so good!

Here are my current issues:

1) You keep mentioning some kind of form in the panel to use for contacting support. I don’t see it anywhere. 2) You have a tracker gif from guag.es in the template. I purchased the template legally and would like to know how to remove the script. 3) Selecting a font color in the admin causes a css override (via !important) of the default widget styles for the footer. Looks bad. 4) The colors are not fully customizable, as random items must be edited in photoshop to remove orange from the theme if a different color is chosen. You have to dig and test to find these items, but they should really be clearly listed in your documentation. Here’s a site that just decided to make peace with the random orange: http://www.eprdev.com/ul/gallery/ 5) When the theme is first installed, the layout is wacky until you select “Save Options” in the Main section of the Umbrella options panel. I’m guessing some defaults aren’t being set until that happens. For an example of someone who didn’t do this, check out: http://www.hissimo-europe.com/services/

Please keep making a good theme even better!!

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

Thanks for that proffesional feedback, we will take our time to check those out and back with an update.

We appreciate this feedback a lot.

Regards.

UmbrellaStudios

Hi

The color issue, is fixed now but other things that you mentioned are very strange, the css override you cant change it without using override. And the layout first installed seems to be fine, the web-site you showed us is an custom example.

Default-user

The color issue is fixed – do you meant that if I change the brand and font colors in the admin panel, that all widgets, shortcodes and templates would no longer show the orange color anywhere?

I don’t have time to keep going over all of these points – you guys have to beta test your own product. If you use custom font and brand colors from the admin panel, and then look through the site, you’ll see everything that I’m talking about. If not, I would really like to see an image or example of your template in a color other than orange and not showing the issues that I’m describing.

UmbrellaStudios

Yes just wait for approval.

I’m sorry, I don’t see any contact form in the panel for contacting you. Two more issues:
  1. When the window is shrunk to phone size in ie9 (haven’t checked ie8), the nav left aligns under the logo, rather than staying to the right. Important because I encourage prospective clients to shrink the browser when viewing my projects to see their responsive layouts. Doesn’t look too clean this way.
  2. In the full desktop layout, when the element widths require the user to scroll right, the white nav bar is set to the width of the inner window, so it’s cut off when they scroll. My menu items and social links hang over the background image with no white nav bar behind them.
Thanks

Can you send us any link to preview all that stuff ?

UmbrellaStudios

PS : The responsive layout is made to change the layout respective to their Device’s, no one will have a Screen of a Smartphone Size and vice versa.

Sometimes you need to fix and keep the contect fixed to it’s respective size and from the source device, so if a user open’s the Website from the iPhone size the web site keep’s this size and operates based on that size.

So instead of resizing the Windows, please present the Website using the appropriate device.

Default-user

Didn’t know you meant the contact form on Envato, got it.

As far as the responsive issues, I’ve dealt with a good number of layouts and have never seen this kind of issue. The layout should not break because the window was resized.

This theme has the potential to sell like crazy, but only if you make it first class. The so-so documentation, lack of customization and various broken pieces have got to get fixed. I looked through about 1,000 themes for my current client before choosing this one – it has a rare mix of modernity and corporate sensibility that wasn’t matched by any other theme. Please keep improving.
