Hi there, love your theme!

I just updated to the 1.4 version… cuz I have the “XML parsing error. Please try again later. API response code: 610” problem on my contact page.

But I still get this after the 1.4 version :(

Hi, i just installed the theme. and installed the contact form 7. and then I watch your video tutorial. and at the contact form. after I copy and save the codes from \practical_final\demo content\contact form snippet, when I view my contact page it says on the right side of the page;

Not Found The requested URL /joedugan/&output=embed was not found on this server. Apache/2.2.22 (Fedora) Server at busy.ws Port 80

Hi,

it’s map shortcode. It’s probably caused because I changed map shortcode in the meantime and haven’t changed xml file with demo content. It isn’t a big problem, you just have to put there your own google map and you will be fine :)

Hello,

I just created a gallery. the thumbnails are displayed correctly but when i click on one image to view/enlarge it, it says “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.”

maarcin

Hi,

go to html view and add this in your gallery shortcode

link="file"

Right now images probably redirect to attachement page instead of image.

Hello,

how can I add images like this: http://themeforest.net/item/practical-wp-responsive-1440px-theme/full_screen_preview/3619051 ?

I mean when you do a mouse-over on the thumbnail a ’+’ appears and when you click the image the website stays on the background but the image enlarges.

I managed to add an image and a thumbnail, but when I click it it’s just a link to the image…

Thanks in advance!

maarcin

Hi,

use ‘Lightbox image’ shortcode for this.

Hi – Am I being a bit crazy but I cannot see where to edit the features boxes on the home page. They don’t appear to be in the Theme options settings under the homepage bits.

I had reset the options at the start as per your instructions.

thanks

maarcin

Hi,

there is a custom post type called ‘Features’ which you should use for this.

Hi! I’m having problems with the menu! Can you please take a look at: http://kunder.timalfredsson.se/bebostad/ //Tim

maarcin

HI,

I haven’t seen this problem before. Make sure whole menu i set up properly in Appearance -> Menus. Also try to deactivate plugins one by one. Maybe one of them adds something that causes menu to hide.

I assume that you didn’t do any changes to the code itself.

Ok, found it! It was my (older) installation of Visual Composer that caused the menu corruption! Upgraded VC and the menu works :) Thanks!

Hello,

How do you make a gallery like this?

http://themesymphony.com/themes/practicalwp/gallery/

I can make the gallery using you shortcode: [gallery size=”gallery-thumbs” columns=”6”]

But the thumbnails are al distored.

Thanks in advance

maarcin

Hi,

shortcode looks good. Maybe you need to regenerate thumbnails. Try to use this plugin.

Still doesn’t work.

Can you write down step by step how to create a gallery like this http://themesymphony.com/themes/practicalwp/gallery/ ?

Maybe I’m doing something wrong…

maarcin

Hmm, can you show me your site and gallery where the problem happend? You might try to remove ” and put them again by hand. Sometimes when you copy the shortcode from somewhere they changes into special signs instead of just quotemarks.

Best

Hey Marcin,

I’m using a local host, so I can’t show you…

I tried the removing ” and replacing them, but doesn ‘t work.

maarcin

This is exact shortcode from demo page

[gallery size="gallery-thumbs" columns="6" link="file" ids="187,188,189,190,191,192,193,194,195,196,197,198"]

Of course IDs will be different, but it should look like that. If you have your images in the proper sizes (that are added with theme) then there is no way to have them disorted.

When you put your size online just send me a message. Right now I can’t help you because I don’t see nothing wrong here.

Hello,

I’ve written several blogposts, but they don’t appear in the ‘latest projects’ section underneath on the homepage, how do I do that?

Thanks!

Hi,

you problably have to use featured image to make them visible.

that didn’t do the trick: featured images, but still not in ‘latest projects’...

I see that new ‘portfolio’ posts get’s into the ‘latest projects’, but how can I get the blogposts over there at the homepage?

Thanks!

Latest projects feeds your portfolio items. There is no block for blog posts.

Hi, This looks like the theme for me, can I just confirm a few things. 1, If I upload 1440×960 px images they will remain that ratio through the theme resizing on other platforms ie: Tablets 960×630 px, Phones 360×240 px, or different size monitors. 2, Is there a wide page without sidebar? 3, Can two phone numbers be added to the contact page?

Kind Regards Neal

maarcin

Hi,

1. Yes

2. Default pages are without the sidebar. Unless you had other thing in mind?

3. Yes.

Best
Marcin

Neal_Morgan

Hi, 2, yes that is perfect. I found the About page after posting my first question.

Other things I thought of:

4,Can the logo banner be full width or is there a way to set the nav bar to be full width below the banner?

5, The icons on the Thumbs in Latest Projects on the demo, can they be removed?

Kind Regards Neal

maarcin

Hi,

4. Right now they’re set in columns e.g. 3/9 (3 columns width for logo and 9 for nav, 12 columns is 100%). You can modify just those two things in header.php for twelve columns and both will be full width. No problem at all.

5. Sure, with cs or if you want you can remove them from php code. I can help with that. With css it’s couple seconds, minute or so with php :)

Best
Marcin

Neal_Morgan

Thank you Marcin, Theme purchased, I would like that help to personalize if that is okay.

maarcin

Thanks :) Sure, drop me an email or open a topic on my support forum. Just let me know there if you want do it css way or php way :)

I want to buy this theme, but PayPal isn’t working even though everything on PayPay’s end is accurate. Ideas?

Finally got it to work. However, when installing in WordPress, I get this error:

“Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.”

What do you suggest?

maarcin

Hi,

thanks for purchase :)

You have to unzip ‘practical_final.zip’ first and then install ‘practical.zip’.

I am having problems with the theme. I was working away, then suddenly got and error. I can no longer log in. You can view the error by going to touchofpinkphotos.com/wp-admin.

before that, I was trying to change from the light theme to the dark theme, and I could find the setting, but it wouldn’t update. HELP!

maarcin

Hi,

probably You have additional plugin thta causes these problems. Try to deactivate all Your plugins and see if that helps.

Best
Marcin

Default-user

How do I deactivate a plug in if I can’t log in?

maarcin

Hi,

You can remove them from plugins folder via ftp. I can see inputs for username and password at the bottom. If You can’t login with this then maybe messed something with default WP files.

Hi there,

When I create a gallery of photos, and then click on the image it says “Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist” the images are uploaded in the media library, and have made previous galleries in the same website that worked fine. Can you please tell me how to fix this problem? So that when you click on the image it shows a bigger version.

Thanks, Whitney

maarcin

Hi Whitney,

if it’s in gallery shortcode make sure it has

link="file"

in the shortcode. It’s important because otherwise it’ll try to take You to attachement page and lightbox doesn’t support that.

You can check this by going into html view when You edit the page. Default shortcode look like so

[gallery ids="1,2,3,4,5,6"]

Just add link to is like so

[gallery link="file" ids="1,2,3,4,5,6"]

This is mentioned in the documentation :)

In your instructions, it says: “Go to Tools -> Import, install additional plugin if needed, and choose xml file from ‘demo content’ folder. “

What importer do you use to do this? It says to install a plugin if necessary. Which one do I install in order to import the demo? Thanks :)

maarcin

Hi,

if You go further it will automatically pick default WP Importer for You. This one.

Best
Marcin

Default-user

Thank you for responding. I did the import process – upon clicking submit I unfortunately keep getting a 500 Error :( Any idea why…or is it a problem with my web host?

maarcin

It’s server issue. Google it, there are couple ways to fix that. If they won’t work You’ll need to contact Your hosting provider.

Best
Marcin

Default-user

The fix is to refresh the 500 Error page a few times – silly, but it is working now, thank you.

Hi Marcin,

We have a small issue concerning the revolution slider in your theme. After the update to the latest version of Wordpress (3.8.1.) it is not possible anymore to change the order of the slides which are already in the slider.

Can you help us with this issue or should we go to the builder of the slider?

Kind regards, Marnix Bos and Mariƫlle van Dam

maarcin

Hi,

probably Revolution slider compatibily issue with newest WP version. I’ll try release an update in couple days with newest version.
