Very nice looking theme. Purchased a few days ago and installed on my site. I used the provided demo content, went through the documentation and cannot get the slider to display correctly (missing headline images, though they are there), typography of subheads running into the headlines (correct Google Fonts installed and styles specified), and the light gray “v” graphic element/bar under the slider doesn’t seem to work. Please PM me if you’d like the live URL. Thank you.

addway

The demo content only contains content, images and theme settings say slider element positions and sizes are not included.

The slide item headline images can be downloaded from the demo site, drop me a line via the contact form on my profile page if you want me to send them to you.

The slider elements positions and sizes settings are not included, but you can “unlock” the slider from Nextbiz > Slider Options to re-position and re-size them from the frontend by drag and drop, its just that easy.

The “v” graphic image isn’t included cos i thought you all will have different designs, not a problem, drop me a line and i’ll send it together.

Opened a thread in the support form but this is really holding me back so I figured I would post here as well. The contact form is not delivering messages for me, the form works fine on the front end and displays the “Thank you, your message was sent successfully” but the email is never delivered. Can you please tell me if there is something missing that I need to add to the template-contact.php file to get this to work?

Thanks!

addway

Please check your host policy if it is allowed to send emails, and the receiver box doesn’t block the emails.

The “Thank you, your message was sent successfully” appears only when php mail function returns a SUCCESS signal, it means the email has been sent, but if it has been sent out from your host and successfully arrive the destination is not under control of the theme, it depends on host account privilege, the middle servers and the destination policy, etc.

#slider-custom {width:100%;}
#header {position:absolute;left:0;top:0;width:100%;}

hi, I bought nextbiz today, but my theme doesn’t look like home 1 theme. I couldn’t find the way to setup it up. What can i do?

addway

Please see the documentation for how to setup the home page and the slider.

A demo XML file is included in the folder “Assets” inside of the theme package, go to Tools > Import to import the file if you need it. This will give you all the content and images (if download) that the demo site contains, but the file doesn’t have theme settings, you will have to configure the theme admin.

For example, the slider elements show up to their default positions without the theme settings, but to adjust the position and size is quite easy, simply go to Nextbiz > Slider Options, unlock the slider, then switch to your webpage and refresh it, now you can just drag these elements to change their position and size.

Also an export/import plugin is under development, it will be included to Nextbiz theme package from the next version.

Default-user

Thank you so much for the information. Now, I’m so happy that I bought this theme. Love it!

addway

If you like my work, don’t forget to five stars Nextbiz on the theme page :)

How do I add a hover arrow like in your demo?

addway

Do you mean the big down arrow at the bottom of the header? It’s a background image that apply to the section “Page Title + Page body”, the image isn’t included in 1.2 and earlier, i will add it to the incoming version 1.3.

Default-user

I mean the arrow in the navigation menu

addway

Hi, this is confirmed a bug that the arrow missing on menus without a dropdown list, i’ll fix it soon, thanks for issue report, appreciate it!

Contact form does not work, please advise. I do not get a thank you message or an email.

addway

Make sure the mail function is enabled in your host, it should return an error message if something is wrong, please send me a link so that i can see the error message.

You may also try Contact Form 7 which is supported since version 1.2

Default-user

Contact form works, but very slow. I still don’t see a success message. http://draftlab.ca/contact/

Default-user

No confirmation message.

addway

Hi there, I’ve been on your site and trouble shooting on the contact form issue, unfortunately there is no error message in the background, and the client requests were sent quickly and correctly.

Something wrong must happen in the host, you can have a try with the plugin Contact Form 7, it has more error messages to return, hopefully we can see what the error exactly is

We purchased this theme but even as experienced WordPress developers, we cannot get the slider to slide. can you please provide some advice on what the issue might be? Thanks!

addway

Could you provide more information, better be a link, so that i can see the issue? And have you updated to the latest version already?

Hi! I can read that the theme include 3 different menu positions – does that also include a left side horisontal-menu (just like the “Studiofolio” theme)?

Best regards Sissel

addway

Sure, you can do it by simply configure the menu to left and add an offset to it. I can help you with it.

Hi addway. I’m enjoying working with your theme. Is it possible to have a different Header+Slider Background for each page?

addway

Yes, you can do it by custom CSS, for example:

.page-id-xx #topbg {background:#FFFFFF url(background-image-url-here) no-repeat center top}

jwill333

Thanks for your reply. Does that also change the slider background or just the header? I noticed that if I add the slider to a page over than the homepage, it uses the same slider background as the homepage.

addway

The background behind header and slider is different to the header background, it only appears when there is a slider, if there isn’t a slider, it’s the header background appears.

When the Header + Slider background image is set, it appears on any page that has a main slider, use the custom CSS i posted above, you can display a different background on a specified page.

Thanks!

My theme says “Nextbiz 1.3 is available! Update Now!” -if I click that will I lose all of my settings and uploaded work -I am currently using 1.1.1

addway

No, upgrade is safe, no site content, theme settings will be touched. Updates are always available at Themeforest, while the update link contains everything you need to know about an update.

Hi there,

I’m having trouble with editing text. I have installed the site and installed the recent upgrade but I can’t get anything other than a basic visual text editor to format.

Please help! Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

addway

Please extract the theme package you downloaded, open the file ‘index.html’ in folder “Documentation” to your browser, then follow the installation guide in the doc to have the theme installed.

Default-user

Thanks – I missed a file and I have it sorted now. I have changed the colours to suit what I need, but for some reason the orange keeps coming up in the menu to show when the page is active. Also, i have used our Home 4 page from the demo as a template for my site and I can’t seem to change the image?

addway

Sure you can, the Home 4 is supposed to be a slider, but i did it a quick static page on the demo site. You don’t have to follow the way demo do, just add a slider to the page (say the free WP Orbit Slider), add one or more slides to the slider, then make it full width and full height in Nextbiz > Custom Styles > CSS

#topbg #header {position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;}
#slider-custom {width:100%!important;margin:0!important;}

For the menu color, i’ll have a check later and if any issue, a fix will be available shortly.

Default-user

Thanks addway. I tried that but it doesn’t go to full size – not sure what i’m doing wrong! I’m loving the theme otherwise, really happy with how i’ve set everything else up. Were you able to look into that colour issue? Also, is it possible to adjust the hight of the header on each page (as in the grey header that is on each page?). Thanks again for all your help!

addway

1. Drop me a line with a login via my profile page and i’d like to configure the slider to be full-width for you.

2. The small arrow before the active navigation menu is an image “menu_hover.png” located in ../nextbiz/images/, you may replace it to any image you like

3. You can add custom CSS (Nextbiz > Custom Styles > CSS) to change header height, for example:

#header {height:200px;}

Hi, it’s not on the XML file as it works well on both my dev box and the demo sites. I have searched around Google and find some posts maybe helpful to you, since you didn’t mention what the error you encountered is, here i list them all

check my website www.opsiseducation.com i have imported full data but still its not like your demo, i am not able to see inner pages or anything els. its all i need to do by custom way. i wan same to same site like your demo please help

addway

It looks you haven’t import the theme settings, have you read the section “Demo Site Replication” in the documentation already? If not, please go through that section to import the theme settings, after that, the slider images and titles position will be set.

Another way is to manually adjust positions, if you have read the section “Slider Setup”, it’d be just a piece of cake to you. That’s, you simply go to Nextbiz > Slider Options > Unlock Slider, then switch your page to drag-and-drop to change positions and sizes of slider elements, changes saved immediately.

For any error during importing XML file, it’s unrelated to the theme, please check out the links i searched out for you to see if any would help.

dreamsdesign

i have uploded your xml file and your date filr still nothing happen, it looks expty only. i want a way with i can make my site look same to same like yours. can you please help me or can i give you a domain cpanel id and pass will you please make it like yours.

dreamsdesign

Please undestand my point , I am also a technical person, I have tried everything as mension in your installation guide, and also followed Demo Replication thing, but the thing is after importing both dat and xml still the things are not commming, i am not able to see home page in static page. thas what main problem is brother.

dreamsdesign

can you please give me another xml file and dat file from which i can check to uplod it or i can give you my admin details please you try and check if it happens or not

[login removed]

addway

Hi, please remove your login info from your comment, i have recevied it from your email.

And could you be more clarify on “cannot see home page in static page” and the areas you want to duplicate from the demo site?

Again, the Tools > Import/Export is a part of WordPress core, a theme has nothing to do with it. And the XML file and dat file are both correct, they have been used already by many others on their websites without any issue.

dreamsdesign

i have given you my login details cant you please check it your self and solve the issue please . thanks krish

addway

If the slider images and titles positions is what your “issue”, please see section “Slider Setup” in the documentation to have it configured.

dreamsdesign

I think your not here to resolve my issue, Do you understand English properly ? my main issue is of importing demo content, i have done all the things as you said but still nothing comes after importing your mxl and dat file. is that clear to you???

you have my domain id and password, please look in to this matter and import content properly in my site, i have paid for the theme and i am not satisfied and happy with your service, because your theme demo content is not importing properly. please give me refund or solve my problem you have my domain details login to my domain admin and do what ever you want to, just my site should look like yours with all the demo content. is that clear ???

addway

Sorry but again, the importing issue is on your server, not on Nextbiz. It is not a theme issue and i’m afraid i couldn’t help you further.

dreamsdesign

Thats it? i have tried this theme on 4 different server, go daddy, hostgator , blue host and my personal server, on non of the server your them demo data words, your demo data is eMpty after imports also nothing happens or no demo data comes. is this how you treat your customers?? is this how you give your service, is this how you solve problems by just saying that your server have problem. bull shit.

if you cant help then say that its not your cup of tea and you dont know how to solve problems. accept it that you dont have capability to solve issues with your there. i am not a fool to ask you again and again, i also have company of 30 employees working with me and thy are also developers, i buyed your theme because i liked it.

JUST REMEMBER 40$ DOCENT MATTERS ME ITS LIKE GIVING MONEY TO A BEGGAR, JUST KEEP IN MIND THAT WHEN YOUR IN SERVICE INDUSTRY YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO HANDLE CLIENT.

JUST BECAUSE OF YOUR SICK PATHETIC SERVICE AND POOR ERROR SOLVING KNOWLEDGE MY CLIENT IS LOST.

The home-page without a slider seems to work differently from the other pages. The other pages I can set to have a title and this will display within the main area. But if I do the same for the home-page with exactly the same settings as all the other pages, it will not display the title. Is there any way to make the home-page display the title and formatting exactly the same as the rest of the pages in the site?

addway

Hi, this is a bug found in an earlier version and have been fixed, please upgrade to the latest version and the issue gone, cheers.

Default-user

Thanks! What’s the safest way to upgrade to the latest version and keep all the work I’ve done already?

Default-user

p.s. I see an upgrade to 1.3 button at the top of the page – but scared to upgrade until I know I won’t loose my work.

addway

It’s safe to update as no content and no settings will be affected, but if there are any theme files have been modified, you’d better to backup your changes before update or you will lose your modifications.

Alternatively, a changed files list is available in the update link, you can update only changed files per the list, this way those unchanged files won’t be affected, so that you have no need to backup your modifications on those files (if any), save times.

At last, it is always recommended to make use of the “Child Theme” technical when introducing theme modifications, the way helps you to update themes without worrying about losing customization.

Default-user

The link to update from the Wordpress control panel takes me to iwakthemes and I’ve registered but I’m told I don’t have permission to access the board.

Is there a list of changes so I can update manually and is the latest version the one you download from Themeforest?

addway

Let me know your account name in the support forum and i’ll do a check shortly.

The latest version is always available on Themeforest, while detailed update information are posted in the support forum.

Thanks. It’s webdesignessex.

Hi, I just bought the theme and would really like to read your 30+ pages document with installation guide, tutorials, psd instruction, supporting instruction, etc. – but where do I find it? :-)

Best regards Sissel

addway

Please extract the package you downloaded, open ‘index.html’ inside of the folder “Documentation” to your browser, everything you need to know is included.

Default-user

Hi again! Thanks for answering – however it seems that the only information about the theme is regarding the “slider” – and following the link referred to I get this message “There isn’t a GitHub Page here.” Is it possible to send me a pdf including the 30+ pages document?

HI!
First, Congrats for the very nice Theme! ;)

I put a button in the content of a page, like in the Shortcodes page of the preview theme page.
[button link="Button URL"] Button text [/button]

The question is: How can I put a “target=”_blank” on that button? Is it possible?
I need a button with “target=”_blank” on the text :/

Thanks and Regards!

addway

You can use the HTML code below for that:

<a target="_blank" class="button medium primary" href="#"><i class="button-icon icon-cloud-download" /><span>This is a much longer button</span></a>

Hi.

I’d like to know if this theme allows to set individual backgrounds for pages or posts in the content section.

Also I’d like to know if it could be possible to set the content background color to transparent in order to see the web image background as the content background.

Regards.

addway

Hi, there is a global background image option for the content section, for different background images and background transparent, you can do it by custom CSS.
