Hi, I bought the forest theme – love it! Just having a hard time getting the icons in front of the headline (home – marketing).

Also the client bar ist not showing up at the bottom of the home page. Could you give me a hint how to fix it?

Hi Katja

You can use the featured image uploader in the new post area to add the icons.

If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email as well :)

Thanks

Just got this theme, however I’m having a hard time setting up the Flex Slider (according to the instructions should be pretty straight forward) and everytime I add a post or page it’s appearing on the footer. Can you provide a set of detailed instructions on how to set up the Flex Slider and/or the full working template as shown in here?, (as user BA-cil mentions, i think it’s easier to modify content than to setup entirely from scratch, even if i have to download some more files). Thanks a bunch.

Hi,

I can send you demo data. It’s in for an update to have it provided on download, but until then just send me an email and I can help.

Thanks

Hi Justin,

Just got this theme and liked it very much. Unfortunately there are some design misses in the theme, like search input field longer then widget area, not aligned text in contact page etc. How to communicate this to you easily? Seems that mailing via form here could be hard, I need to attach screen shot to demo the bugs.

Thanks! K

And also I wonder how to add 3 images to a post “galleri”-type. So it looks like yours http://themeforest.net/item/project-9-creative-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/1951787

I tried different ways but the only slider I got is like 10 px high… :( Please can you put some info about this kind of post. Thanks!

Hello,

Need a little help. When viewing my site on an iPad it mis-aligns. The sidebars push the content down. Looks pretty bad. Are there any adjustment I can make?

Thanks,

Hey,

Looks like the main image needs to be added. all should align correctly with the home page showing the central image. Feel free to send me an email and I can put in some sample data, if that would help out :)

Thanks

Hi again,

Yeah the theme don’t look good on the iPad, there are some big issues with the align on the post pages as well. The images pushes the sidebar up..

The post page have nothing to do with the home page central image so why the align has to be depending on it?

Siiimple

Hi,

Make sure to add some posts and content. The theme will display differently with content added. Without content, it may seem to display awkwardly.

Thanks

Justin, THERE IS content in this “Image post type” post. It has a title and one image, should be enough… Take a look at it on ipad [url removed] and you will noticed that the content side with post in below empty area with only sidebar on. The post is put on the bottom… it should be neither scaled or on the top and sidebar on the bottom…

Hi, just a couple of questions:

1. I would like the home page slider to link to pages instead of posts is there I way I can make it do this?

2. I would like the home page to contain the slider and underneath just some text and a sidebar is there a way I can make it look like this?

Thanks.

Siiimple

Hey,

These items are possible but would require some file editing and will cost a bit extra. If you’re okay with that or you have any additional questions, feel free to send me an email and we can discuss further :)

Hey Justin, You said this in the comments but you offered no solution: is there one?

I see what you’re saying. The image width in the demo is 1600px wide, but the slider will extend beyond that – it’s just that the image won’t. Here’s what I mean: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-MvhQocnzXac/T23_2vSHqlI/AAAAAAAAASg/mI4pnY-wwJI/s1396/example.png So, in other words, if you had a 1800px wide image, the slider will extend to 1800px.

Justin,

My client doesn’t want the marketing section, only the blog section. Is there anyway to “turn-off” the marketing section?

Thanks

Siiimple

Yea, just disable that homepage block in the theme options. If you need any help, feel free to email me :)

Justin,

Thanks for the prompt reply… However, I cannot locate what you are referring to. Can you please be more specific?

I do see how to disable to the blog and client section, but there is nothing for the marketing section.

Thanks

Siiimple

Hey,

My apologies. When I answered your previous questions, I was thinking it was for a different theme. Geez, I think I’m overworked :)

Yes, this can be removed. If you would like to shoot me ftp details I will comment out the section (in case your client wants it added at a later date).

Thanks

Siiimple

Hey,

If the image is 1800px the slider will extend to 1800px. The alternative option is centering the slider, so that with very large screen resolutions the image/slider will center on the page.

@pastorlane I managed to remove the marketing bit from the homepage simply by trial and error; hacking away at the code. Though this may not be advisable, as long as you keep a clean copy of the code, you’re ok.

Hello, I just wanted to ask a quick question before purchasing this theme. It looks amazing and have been searching for a theme with a full screen size header image. I want to use it to advertise my holiday home for holiday lets, and just need something to show the photos, some info, and a contact form. It is not possible to see the photo gallery function in terms of a gallery slideshow on the live preview. Can it do these things?

Thanks, Maggie

Siiimple

Hi Maggie,

I’m not 100% sure what you mean about the photo gallery function. Are you referring to a gallery within posts or the main slider you see on the front page? Sorry for misunderstanding.

Hi,

I really need to use the “style my gallery” plugin that also uses the Flex Slider… BUT , as I expected, when I activate the plugin it messes up the flex slider on the home page… is there anyway around this?

Please help. Thanks.

Siiimple

Hi,

Not 100% sure, without having a look at your site. Feel free to send me info and I will have a look :)

Justin,

Any progress on this?

And, how can I add a video to a marketing post?

Siiimple

Hi,

I’m not sure there is a way to work with both the plugin and the flex slider installation because they use similar components. You can try a (no conflict) workaround – that may work.

To add video to the marketing area would require some additional file editing. It doesn’t come standard, unfortunately.

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

Hi Justin,

Sorry for my description I don’t know the technical terms. I mean if I wanted to create a photo gallery page and put it on my navigation bar, and when clicked on it would take you to a page where there would be a photo gallery of images. Is this function built in to the theme, or do you provide coding to do this.

Can the header slider seen on the front page display different pictures on different pages, or is it always the same pictures if you chose to enable the slider? Can the slider be used as a photo gallery for lots of images, or is it just for a few images.

What is the image size of the front slider image, I want to make sure my photos are good enough quality?

Excuse my ignorance. I do not want to use the theme as a blog, is the theme suitable for business use.

Thanks, Maggie

Siiimple

Hi,

WordPress allows for inserting a photo gallery into a page. When you insert a set of photos through the Featured Image area. Also, there are a few plugins to allow for this in a variety of ways.

The header slider displays only on the main page. With some file editing it’s possible to add the same slider to various page templates. But as of now, it only shows on the home page.

The image showing is 1600px wide. The image will size down according to mobile/laptop, etc. device.

It’s suitable for not using the blog. The blog is only one element of the theme, and it’s not unusual to not use the blog but still use other functionality associated with the theme and WordPress itself.

Hope that helps!

Hi Justin,

Nice work indeed. However, I am having difficulties setting up the sidebar as well. I tried finding an instructions file somewhere in the documentation, but without any success. Can you please send one via email at vtsoneva@gmail.com? Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I am trying to upload a 2546×700 header slide image instead of 1600×700 – so it spans the width of larger monitors. But the image keeps getting cropped to 1600. Please help :-)
