Hi there – just wondering if there is a widget in this theme to display 125×125 banners? Also any chance of a review/rating system for posts in the future?

SaurabhSharma

Hello jamcom,

Advertisement banners can be inserted using text widget in any widget area like header section or sidebar. For 125 ads, it will be required to set display: inline rule on images so that they appear next to each other. If you need help with that I will suggest appropriate CSS.

Congratulations, one of the clearest documented and easiest to configure themes I have worked with.

One question – variation 6 in the demo has no sidebar; how do I recreate this?

SaurabhSharma

Hello s7uar7,

Thanks for kind words and feedback. I’m glad you liked the theme and documentation.

Variation 6 uses Page template Full Width. Inside your Home page, if you have pasted markup from variation 6, assign a Page – Full Width template to this page from “Page Attributes” panel > Templates.

Similar to this, you can assign a left sidebar Page template too.

Hello Saurabh Ji,

Tell me one thng Add media not working in post or page….........After installing This theme. I am using wordpress 3.5.1 . Please help me.

Thanks Chandan

SaurabhSharma

Hello Chandan,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. I just tested the “Add Media” and “Set featured Image” buttons. They seem to work fine. I also cross checked with twentytwelve theme.

I think one of the old plugins are causing issue on your site. Known ones are listed on this link:

http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-35-master-list?replies=4

Besides these, some users have found conflict with bbPress and Infinite Scroll plugins. They prevent Add media button from uploading images, and you get an upload error. I hope disabling all plugins for a while will solve the issue. After that you can re-activate them one by one to find the actual conflicting plugin.

Hi, I have been having a problem with the custom sidebars. I followed the directions on creating clicking the box and updating the page. The sidebar shows up in the widget area. Then I add widgets to the sidebar – but the default sidebar always shows up. And not the exclusive sidebar when I publish. I have even gone back to republish the page to make sure the correct sidebar is on the page. Think I have tried every way to do this.

SaurabhSharma

Hello charloub,

Kindly send me your WP login and URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. Kindly also mention the page name on which you wish to us exclusive sidebar. I will check and fix it.

Hi Saurabh, well done on a fantastic theme! Looks cool and clean, it’s easy to use, and the documentation is great, which is really helpful for someone not so experienced like me. One question though: I transferred a site with about 400 posts over to this theme, and I’ve realized now that I would like to have a different sidebar (with different widgets) on all of the posts than on the home page. So rather than creating a new custom sidebar for the posts and then going into every single one and changing the setting from default to the new custom sidebar, it seemed to make a lot more sense to just use the default sidebar for all of the posts, and to create a new custom sidebar for only the home page. But when I try to do that, the home page refuses to display anything but the default sidebar. I’ve tried a few different ways, giving the custom sidebar new names, but the default sidebar keeps coming up. Is the home page somehow permanently linked to the default sidebar? Any ideas on how to fix this? (P.S. I just noticed, this seems like the same issue mentioned by charloub above.)

SaurabhSharma

Hello dpallen,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback. Your concept of using exclusive sidebar for Home page is better than using them for all posts.

Similar to charloub, I think you both might be missing to select this newly registered sidebar inside page options panel > Available widget areas for sidebar. (or may be you have already done that). In either case, kindly send me your WP login/URL and page URL at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check and fix it.

For reference, here is an example of exclusive sidebar.

dpallen Purchased

Hi Saurabh and thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately this sidebar issue is happening when the “Available widget areas for Sidebar” for the home page is registered to a newly created sidebar; it still uses the default sidebar. That’s what I meant when I said I’ve tried giving the custom sidebar new names, when I register the home page to any other sidebar, it still has no effect. If I do it the other way around and register a custom sidebar for any other page, it works fine, just not for the home page.

I’m currently building my site locally with WampServer, but it should be live in a few days, and I can send you the login info then.

Thanks again, Dan

SaurabhSharma

Hello Dan,

First of all sorry for getting late on reply. It’s Holi festival in my country and I got in it with community and family.

Regarding sidebar issue, Charloub sent me his login, and it came out that it was an error from my side in sidebar.php. I have fixed it for him. You can fix it by opening sidebar.php file, line no. 9:

$page_opts = get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'page_options', true );

Change this to:

$page_opts = get_post_meta( $posts[0]->ID, 'page_options', true );

So basically page options was not able to get fetched for Home page. After changing $post->ID to $posts[0]->ID, it will work fine. I will update this on main download too. Once again, my apologies for this inconvenience.

Hi, I’m a relative novice when it comes to web design and i was wondering if there is some kind of advice you could give as to how one would about about getting the page to look and function similar to the demo?

thanks..

SaurabhSharma

Hello danjmham,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

For theme setup and basic configuration, you can go through the documentation/index.html file inside your download zip. This help manual covers basic star-tup instructions like creating Home page, categories, posts, featured images, etc. If you are familiar with basic WordPress usage, it won’t be difficult to get started.

After going through documentation file, if you find any difficulty, feel free to email me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will help you with that. :)

Good morning,

I’m thinking of buying your theme, which I think is very nice.

But I have a few questions (I’m new to wordpress):

1) I have a site dedicated to travel in various languages, I wish ask if ??the theme supports multilingual WPML? Or are there other simple solutions?

2) Can I put advs within posts?

3) Can I eliminate the possibility of making comments to the posts in all the pages of the site?

4) Can I delete the dates from all the posts ?

5) In my pages I need the searchbox from booking.com (hotels search box) through iframe can I do this ?

Thanks for the replies.

Best Regards. Marco.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Marco,

Thanks for browsing the theme. Please find my answers below:

1. Localization is done through .po and .mo language files in theme. You can translate theme message strings using poedit software and these language files. When using WPML, category IDs may change for translated categories. This theme uses category IDs for various post shortcodes and templates. In that case, it may not work well if the IDs are changed.

2. Yes, advertisements can be inserted globally above/below post, and also per post. Additionally, you can insert them inside post content too.

3. Yes, comments can be disabled permanently by removing comments_template() call from single.php file.

4. Dates can not be removed selectively, but there are options for hiding entire post meta information like ‘Author | category | date | comments’ on single posts and individual post snippets.

5. If you wish to show iFrame code in all pages, that can be done by inserting the code inside page.php file. Optionally, you can also insert that code inside page content in editor for per page basis.

Besides these, feel free to ask me if you have more questions. :)

Hello,

I just bought your theme. I really like it, but something is not working or I need to adapt a little bit. I installed the facebook plugin so users can leave comments. The # of comments are shown when I use Blog list style but the # of comments are not shown when I use

[insert_posts cats=”3” num=”3” display_style=”list-big” excerpt_length=”220”]

I created a static home page (Blog list style) where I added [insert_posts cats=”3” num=”3” display_style=”list-big” excerpt_length=”220”] on my site http://www.slaapinfo.nl to show you the difference.

The first 2 posts are triggered because of [insert_posts cats=”3” num=”3” display_style=”list-big” excerpt_length=”220”], and the last two posts because of the (Blog list style) template.

How could I fix that? Or better, how can I change the output of shortscodes?

regards, Pieter

SaurabhSharma

Hello Pieter,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

On blog templates and default archives, post meta information is shown using newsplus_post_meta() and newsplus_small_meta() inside functions.php file.

But for post short codes, this meta information (author, date, comments, etc.) is coded inside includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php file, inside a function named insert_posts(). You will find it at around line no. 703 and 710.

If you need any help in editing that meta, or adding some snippet, you can mail me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will help with that.

Hello -

I really like the look of this theme and it may work for my uses. What kind of built-in support is there for additional sidebars? I need to be able to have a secondary left sidebar in addition to the right sidebar. Use my current site as an example: http://www.anglotopia.net/ to understand what I mean.

Cheers, Jonathan

SaurabhSharma

Hello Jonathan,

Thanks for browsing the theme. Currently it supports sidebar in either left or right side. Two sidebars on same page are not supported. If you wish to have such layout, Volt Theme would be more suitable. You can browse this one. May be it fits your requirement. :)

Hello, first congratulations for the theme that is beautiful! I would ask that plug-in tips to make multilingual site as I tried to install WPML does not work. After installing WPML crashes throughout the site. Can you recommend a good plug-in compatible with your theme to make the site multilingual? Or a method to ensure that the site may have more than one language?

Thank you very much. See you soon

SaurabhSharma

Hello Jonathan,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

Currently, localization is supported through language translation files (.po and .mo). This allows your site translation in any language, but only one site per installation. Switching multiple languages on same site is only possible through WPML or similar plugin. I will try and make it WPML ready. But meanwhile, it will be required to use translation files per installation. :)

Localization/Translation not work, example de_DE.mo

SaurabhSharma

Hello laowei2002,

Translation works for de_DE.mo. Make sure this .mo file is compiled properly in poEdit software (as described in documentation file’s section 15. Using language options). Also make sure you have defined this language inside wp-config.php file as define ('WPLANG', 'de_DE');.

If this doesn’t work, kindly send me your FTP and WordPress login details. I will check it. :)

I have been setting up your theme and really love it. Three issues I’m having though.

1. Headings: I have tried using the dummy txt files included for setting up the home page. But my headings do not take on the styles that I see in the demo. (the white text with coloured bg followed by black text word word). How do I get this to work? Also how would I then set colours?

2. Tablet view: I like how the demo appears on an ipad or tablet. But when I view mine on an ipad it seems to be displaying the mobile version – all one column. How do I adjust this? Or what could be causing the issue?

3. Post slider navigation: When I insert a carousel, or slider (anything with the navigation on the bottom). The buttons and numbers do not appear as your demo. They are all spaced wide apart. I did change the size of the post font to make bigger – could this be the issue?

Thanks so much for any help you can give. :)

SaurabhSharma

Hello jamcom,

1. Heading titles shall appear properly if you have copied the same code as provided inside dummy_data/home.txt file. This is similar to:

<h2 class="section-title"><span class="ss-label black"><a href="#">Featured</a></span> Our favorites</h2>

The .section-title class makes it light grey, whereas .ss-label class is for the highlighted label. Colors are set from class names like black, brown, orange, blue, green, etc. These classes are defined inside style.css file at around line no. 3443 > Inline Labels.

2. Since original live demo is looking fine, it can not be an issue with mobile’s Zoom feature. So I suspect either there is a caching plugin (which may take responsive.css all the time), or there is some inline Google Ad. I can tell more if I see your site’s link.

3. Changing post font size will not affect slider bullets. May be there is some HTML markup error in content placed above that carousel. Again, I can check that by seeing the URL. So kindly send me your site URL or post here. I will check it. :)

Hi SaurabhSharma,

I hope you’re well. Could I ask 1 final question? :-) When writing a blog post, you have the option of adding a “Featured Image” to the blog post. This image then appears on the homepage thumbnails, the related posts thumbnails etc etc and also appears in it’s original size at the top of the blog post you attach it to. Could you tell me how I can edit the code so that when I include a “Featured Image” in a blog post, it DOESN’T appear at the top of the blog post, however, still continues to be displayed everywhere else on the site, e.g. homepage, & related thumbnails etc…

Thanks very much Kind Regards

SaurabhSharma

Hello SelfHelpHealing,

Featured images are inserted automatically on single posts. This can be disabled inside ‘Appearance > Theme Options > Blog > Single Post Settings > Hide featured Image’. Check this option and save settings. After that, all single posts will show content as provided. No images will be added inside post content, while they will still be available inside post snippets, related posts, slider, etc.

Hi,

First of all, thanks for the great theme.. I have some problems that i would like to share with you and have your opinion.

1) My header banner does not seem to scale while browsing from a mobile device. Do you have a suggestion for that?

2) I can’t change the number of related posts. It is stuck at 5, even if i change the number from Theme Options. What might be the problem?

3) Is it possible to change the language of Facebook Like button under the posts?

Address is http://www.teknizmo.com btw.

SaurabhSharma

Hello managra,

Thanks for the purchase and kind feedback.

1. Google ads are not responsive by default. They contain various iframes and images which are of fixed width. These can be made responsive by including a JavaScript just before your advertisement code. There is one such snippet which is also approved by Google Ad program. You can find it here.

2. I think you are using related posts with “Tags”. For tags, it is fixed to 5, which is an error from my side. Kindly send me your functions.php file at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will send you the fix.

3. FB like button language can be changed inside functions.php file, at around line no. 645:

js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1";

Inside this URL, change en_US to your own locale like es_ES or de_DE. You can find locale list here.

While sending functions.php, kindly let me know which language translation you want. I will modify this URL too.

Hello,

I can not get an image to appear in the default header widget area. Text appears fine, Meta widget appears fine, but no liked image. The template seems to be appending inline css that is hiding the image and giving it height and width attributes of 0:

style="display: none !important; visibility: hidden !important; opacity: 0 !important; background-position: 0px 0px;"

I’ve tried using an exclusive widget and have the same result.

Also, I’ve attempted to add advertisements above and below posts and they do not show up either. What’s going on?

SaurabhSharma

Hello jgunderson,

Thanks for purchasing the theme. Images may not show up if you are using relative URLs. i.e. the ones that start as wp-content/uploads/your-image.jpg. If you change it to absolute URL like http://yoursite.com/wp-content/uploads/your-image.jpg, they shall work fine.

For inline styles being added, it may happen if some lazy load plugin is being used which hides images until they are loaded. I can tell more if you could post your site URL here or mail it to me at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. :)

I could not this :( how can i do ? Where should i put the Google ads code?

SaurabhSharma

Hello bloghaber,

Google ad code and script can be added inside a ‘Text Widget’ in any sidebar or header widget area. For example, navigate to Appaerance > Widgets > Default Header Bar. Inside this widget area, use a text widget and paste the Google Ad code. This is usually a script snippet and some markup. Just after default scripts, you can include the script as shown on this page. (The script is inside dark black rectangle. It will be required to select it to be visible).

This script calculates browser width and replaces ad-slot with different sizes like 730, 300, etc. If you find any difficulty, kindly send me your WP login, and advertisement code at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Hello! This is Ben again. :)

Is there a recommended image size of this theme? Captured image below says if I do not resize image, it may results in imbalance of thumbnails of website.

Help me, please!

http://img214.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=502548489_sameline_122_912lo.jpg
SaurabhSharma

Hello Ben,

In latest version 1.0.1, the theme supports image scaling and hard cropping. If you are using 1.0.1, navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Image Sizes. Here you can set a width and height for two columnar grid images. For example, set 600×400 and enable hard crop mode. After saving settings, regenerate thumbnails as described on the top of this admin page.

Alternatively, you can avoid hard cropping by providing featured images that are of same height. On live demo, I have used images of 900×600, or 800×533. So there is a consistent height proportion across all posts.

So you can use any method, hard cropping or providing same height images. :)

Regards
