I’m having some troubles with my website. http://www.samplesizeone.com/

The search box for some reason is lower than in your website. Also in your website, how do I add widgets to the homepage (Welcome to My College, Campus Tour, College Daily News, etc.) Thank you.

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Make sure you set up a front page. You can find the documentation in the archive you’ve downloaded > Documentation > MyCollege > index

we have some issues with the header images, sometimes it shows the header on some pages, sometimes not.

Can you explain why please?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Do you see any errors? There was a big with the header images and it was fixed in the latest version of the theme. What version do you have?

Is there any way to make outside links open in “_blank” pages? The social buttons in the header and footer being the real problems here. Do I just have to edit the code?

Default-user

p.s. just asking before purchase based on demo, im okay with working with code if its not too hard

SkatDesign

Hi there and thank you for your interest.

The links on the social buttons do not use the “_blank” feature right out of the box. You’ll need to edit the code and add it. I can guide you to do that, no problem.

Cheers!

Let me ask you something. If i wish to translate it to SPANISH, is possible? So how do i?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

The theme is translate ready. You need a software (like POedit, which is free) and then translate all the lines in the .po file. Please check the WordPress documentation on how you can translate a theme.

Hello again,

I would like to start off be saying thank you for this theme. I had a question about the “Page header background image” within the Pages section of Wordpress. The default size for the custom header for the page is 960×94. How could I change this to make it bigger? I.E. what file do I have to go into to change this. Thank again!

Hi there,

The slideshow on homepage has an error. When you mouseover the arrow to change img from slider, it shows the wrong image.

Can you fix it?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Please post your questions on the support forums here:

Default-user

This is not a question. This is an afirmation. There is a bug on slideshow as i tell you above. Sorry for my bad english, but you get the message. I hope you can fix this bug so i can buy this theme. Best regards friend.

Default-user

And now when i try to see the demo, a lot of features don’t appear in page.. its blank.. can you fix it also? Sttufs aren’t loading completely.

SkatDesign

Hi,

Sorry, I’ve changed my hosting and the dns is not fully propagated. I guess, until tomorrow everything should be back again.

Hi I have our website built on your platform (you can see – www.litr.ac.uk). but the twitter live thread doesn’t work. Could you please advise me how to get it done and also how to update the theme please. Thanks

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Please post your problem on my support forums here:

http://skat.tf/support

Cheers!

Default-user

Hi, thanks for your reply. Since the theme is not bought by me directly, I can’t post my problem on your support forum as your system asks me to provide you with purchase code. My previous web master is not assisting so I hired a new web master and he needs your help. Please assist in this as we are loosing some business. thanks in advance.

Default-user

Hi No reply yet…

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Updating the theme will fix your problems. The latest version can be downloaded from the account that bought it. Unfortunately, if your webmaster doesn’t send you the latest version of the theme I cannot help you further (or without a purchase code).

Cheers!

Default-user

Hi Thanks for reply! Is it possible for you to do this update if we pay you directly. Looking forward to hear from you. Thanks

SkatDesign

Hi there,

I’m sorry but I’m not allowed by Themeforest to do that. Ask your webmaster just for the purchase code and I’ll update your site myself, for free.

Cheers!

Presale question for you:

Am considering this theme for a government client, however, the education-related stuff is not needed. How deeply integrated is the code for the education features embedded in the theme? How difficult do you estimate it would be to remove or overide those functions and features.

I’m specifically referring to the course selector widget on the front page (if that even is a widget) and the course custom post type. There are probably also some taxonomies that need to be removed. While I can do it, I’m just wondering how much of the theme will break if I do and what impact it will have. The theme is beautiful, modern and is the style the client is looking for, but site doesn’t need the extras.

Thank you for your time for making such a great looking theme!

SkatDesign

Hi there and thanks for your interest.

You can change whatever section, there’s nothing “branded” with education related stuff.

Cheers!

Hi,

I am interested in buying this template. However I would like to ask first if is possible to make the big images at the header scroll when one clicks the left and right arrows?

In the demo at http://mycollege.skat.tf/ when you hover on the arrows, you get a small preview of the next or previous image but when you click, nothing happens.

Cheers

SkatDesign

Hi there and thank you for your interest.

What browser are you using? Can you try to clear your cache and refresh the page?

The small thumbs show the next/prev slide image and the change to the next ones when they are clicked.

Cheers!

Default-user

Hi,

I was using Chrome version 28 and the thumbnails did not work. Then I updated to the latest version 31.0.1650.57 m and they work fine now.

Maybe it has something to do with the touch/click events? I had a similar issue with another theme where chrome was firing a touch event on a desktop browser instead of a click event, making the sliding effect unusable. On Firefox everything works fine though.

Cheers

Default-user

Just tested once again… On Chrome version 31.0.1650.57 m with a screen resolution of 1024×768 the images do not slide on click.

Please refer to following screencast I just did at http://www.screenr.com/3JeH

Default-user

Any news on the above please? So I can buy the template…

Default-user

You can see that the previous and next image thumbnails are the same one…

SkatDesign

Hi there,

I don’t know what to say. I can’t replicate the problem on my side. I’ve tried on my desktop, laptop and even on my ipad and it’s working for me. Did you try on other machines to see if the problems persists?

Cheers!

I’ll do my best to assist you in any problem you may encounter.

Hi,

The tweeter error message has been fixed by creating the tweeter account as per your instruction.

Another more questions:

1. I have tried to get free plugin here: http://skat.tf/sd-shortcodes-free-wordpress-shortcodes-plugin/, but till now, no email regarding this matter, I have received.

2. Please help me on this RSS Feedburner.

Feed Title: Maahad Darul Faizin Original Feed: http://darulfaizin.my/feed/ Feed Address: MaahadDarulFaizin

- Which one is my Newsletter Feedburner RSS id - What should I FTP to this subfolder: http://darulfaizin.my/feed/ ?

3. The registered email address for both WP Network Admin and Admin is admin@darulfaizin.my - I have tried to fill the contact us form but no email has been received to that mailbox

I already opened an account with http://feedburner.google.com

feed title: Maahad Darul Faizin original feed: http://darulfaizin.my/feed/ Feed Address: http://feeds.feedburner.com/MaahadDarulFaizin

I have added “MaahadDarulFaizin” into Newsletter Feedburner RSS id in My College Option->Footer

What about the RSS Feed Url?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

1. The rss feed url can be this: http://darulfaizin.my/feed/ or this http://feeds.feedburner.com/MaahadDarulFaizin. It is up to you which one you choose.

To enable the email subscribe option make sure to enable this feature in your Feedburner account.

2. Make sure that you create a new form (or edit the current one) from the “Contact” option in your WP dashboard. There you must replace the email address (btw I received your test messages :) )

Cheers!

3. how about the: http://skat.tf/sd-shortcodes-free-wordpress-shortcodes-plugin/ ?

i’m editing the theme and will ask again if got any issue.

SkatDesign

Hi there,

What options do you need from the plugin? Because most of them are already included in the theme and you won’t need the plugin.

Second thing, I would like to remove the “Leave a Reply” box

Hi there,

1. Edit the file named “searchform.php” and you’ll find the text at line 26.

2. Simply disable the comments. You can do this from your WP dashboard to disable the comments site-wide or on a specific post.

Sirs,

I would like to change from LinkedIn to Youtube Channel for the header and to add Youtube Channel to the footer

Please help

SkatDesign

Hi there,

1. You must edit the “header.php” file and you’ll find the linkedin code from line 70 to 74.

The icon images can be found in the “sprite.png” file from the theme’s file > framework > images.

2. The bottom icons code can be found in the file named “footer.php” starting at line 64.

Seriously considering purchasing and wanted to say thank you! for providing a support system aside from the insane comment area here where you can’t search for previous Q&A’s that might already be answered and can’t reply to comments already posted. I wanted to know if it was really “college branded” so to speak and if I had not seen the Q&A on the first two pages of comments I would have probably walked away from this theme. To find something you’re looking for in this set up is ridiculous. So, your own support system is a HUGE plus for your company in my opinion!

Hey, I am thinking of purchasing this theme, but before that i have two questions. Will this theme support buddypress and since i won’t be needing the Contact info and Admission announcement section under header, i hope its easy to disable that section.

SkatDesign

Hi there and thank you for your interest.

1. Honestly I don’t know. I never tested the theme with BP.

2. You can disable any part of the theme you want.

All the templates they depend on shortcodes… This makes it less user friendly for people who don’t understand much about where and when to use the respective short code.

Especially for the homepage campus events section, why do we need to give url for each one? Isn’t there a way you can just directly pull a category without me doing much of the customization?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

The homepage campus events section is just a carousel shortcode with images. You can put in the carousel anything you want (images/text/video). Though, it’s not possible to pull anything from a specific category.
