Hi Indonez,

These may seem like very simple questions, but I would appreciate the help.

Q1) I’m a little confused how to edit the “welcome to mgyen” that is located under the HOME button and how to create similar comments under the About Us, Services & Contacts pages as well. www.synergystrategies.ca

Q2) Do you have instruction on how to exactly make images appear on the home page?

Suggestion: I’ve found it useful when the instructions are located on the demo theme =) But I’m happy your giving everyone a hand =)

Hello

Q1) My original question was regarding how to change the “welcome to mygen” that is located under the HOME icon. I am also curious how to create similar comments under my ABOUT , SERVICES & CONTACT pages.

Q2) Is there exact instructions on how to put the images up on the home page as I can’t figure it out.

Suggestion: I have several sites running on wordpress themes and have found it useful as a user when the instructions are on the theme demo as users always look at it for reference anyways. A great example is this theme which I bought: http://deluxe.flashsuperheroes.com/

Thank you =)

Indonez

hello runasv,

ok i will answer your question,

1). please open header.php file and find this code in line 61 :
<span class="descmenu">welcome to mygen</span>
bow you can change welcome to mygen with your own text, for other page, you can add custom field called subtitle and fill the value with short text to describe your page

2). there’s section in documentation how setting the slideshow image, basically you just need to add custom field called thumbnail in your posts category that will be used for slideshow and fill the value with your uploaded image.

thanks for your suggestion, this help me to improve documentation.

I tried changing the JS for showing more on the portfolio pages so I could use the next buttons and what not, but I think I messed it up. Any pointers? http://www.justinlbannister.com/portfolio/

Indonez

the portfolio page has been limitted to show 6 portfolio item per page, so if you have more 6 items you portfolio page will be paged.

thanks.

I was wondering if anyone else is having the problem where the the sidebar disappears after you edit the main page? This has happened several times when I go into edit the services page of my website. It seems that the widgets on the right just disappear. What is the solution to resolve this problem?

Thank you, http://www.synergystrategies.ca/services/

Indonez

i have rechecked and tried editing services parent page and there’s no problem as you mentioned above.

thanks.

Great looking theme. Thanks!

Before I buy I would need to know; does it support video? So that for example if I want to showcase my video work in the portfolio section I could have a video thumbnail gallery and a video pop-up instead of images.

Please let me know and I’ll have my PayPal ready.

Thanks, Rob

Indonez

Hi, thanks for your interest.

for now it’s does not support for video portfolio, but i will consider this for the next update.

thanks.

Hi Idonez,

Beautiful theme, just love it. Bought it recently. Please can you tell me how to change logo image, or just to remove Mygen on a home page top right corner. I did everything as in instruction, read all your forums, but seems, am doing smth wrong http://goldendeerco.com/

Thanks in advance.

Indonez

for quick fix changing the logo, please replace logo.gif file that located in images folder with your own logo, the size is 53×113 pixel.

thanks.

Thanks for reply, but as I know in Mygen setting page first thing what i see is ’’paste URL image if you want to change logo’’ I’m following instructions and pasting image URL , but nothing happens, though image is 53×113. Moreover you mention size for logo within 60×200 pxs shouldn’t it work just that way? I’m thinking…, If all buyers of your theme facing this problem.

Thanks

Indonez

ok this is minor issue for custom url logo code and information, i will fix this for next update.

thanks.

I can’t seem to get photos into my homepage slideshow. I’ve uploaded a photo into several individual posts that are each categorized as ‘Slideshow’. I selected ‘Slideshow’ as the category to display in the slideshow within the Mygen Settings. However, there is still nothing there on my homepage :-(

Please help. Thank you!

my site: www.jordandann.com

Indonez

did you have added custom field called thumbnail and fill the value with uploaded images at your slideshow category posts?

thanks.

To elaborate on the comment above – I just noticed that the photos are not pulling anywhere actually, except within the posts themselves. I tried to create a Portfolio page and only the title of the posts showed up and not the photo itself.

How should I be treating photos so that they appear on other pages?

Thanks again

Indonez

please add your image in custom field instead of as attachment, just contact me from my profile page, i will help you to fix this.

thanks.

Hello, Great theme. Will be perfect for my brother website. I do have a question, though. How do you get the latest news to appear in the newsflash section, at the bottom of the Home page.

I used the news widget, but it shows up in the side bar. I looked at the Home page code (Index.php) and I just can’t figure it out.

Thank you.

Indonez

did you have setted your category for your news/blog from theme options? by default news section will retrieve information from news/blog category.

thanks.

please open header.php file and find this code (about line 61) :

welcome to mygen

, now you can remove or edit the default menu description.

I am not really sure on how to go about open header.php file and find that code.

Any help please. I can’t find it on mygen settings. I am lost.

thanks in advance

Indonez

sorry i did not saw your “purchased” badge.

Hi. How do I load a favicon image for this theme so that it will appear on all my Web site pages?

Indonez

you need to manually add the code in header.php file, please open header.php file and add this code after <head /> tag :

<link href="&lt;?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?&gt;/images/yourfavico.gif" rel="icon" />
change yourfavico.gif with your image, but first you need to place your favicon image in images folder of mygen theme.

thanks.

Where is the images folder of mygen theme? How can I access it?

I did as you said and pasted the code

after and before in header.php.

I tried uploading a .ico and a then tried a .gif file. Neither worked. The images are with all others from my site under the Wordpress Media folder.

Any thoughts what to try next?

Indonez

go to mygen folder, then you will find images folder there, now upload your favico image there.

thanks.

May I ask if this is compatible with Wordpress v3 yet? I am already at v3 and before I purchase just want to make sure it will work. Is anyone using it on v3?

Indonez

basically there’s no problem even you install the theme in wordpress 3.0, but i will make wp3.0 features in updated version, hope this month the updated version will be released.

thanks.

I’ve uploaded the favicon in every conceivable mygen image folder and tried the code after “head” and also after ”/head”

Nothing works. It’s so disappointing.

Could the following piece of the code you gave me be wrong???

?&gt;
Indonez

yes it’s should

< ? php
with no space, and closed with
?>
let me know if you still have a problem.

thanks.

Okay either clearing the cache

OR

saving my favicon.ico file into the mygen root directory and then adding the following code between and tags in header.php (pointing to the image in my root directory) did the trick.

I have both codes (indonez’s and this one) in header.php, as well as favicon images saved in multiple mygen folders, but my favicon is showing up now, and that was the goal!

Hope this info. helps others.

Indonez

great! :)

Is there any reason why the portfolio will only allow a total of 12 images?

I understand that it will only show 6 per page, but when I hit the “Next” button on the second page of images, it doesn’t go anywhere. I have at least 6 more images uploaded.

Here’s the link: http://www.lohisteakbar.com/gallery

Thanks.

Indonez

I checked your site and gallery navigation working properly.

thanks.
