Ok, if i do this will i lose my current home page work? or will it just update?

Themes-Dojo

No, you will not lose the content or the settings, it just will update.

Does this site offer an FTP upload option?

FTP reply:

Sorry I meant is there a page in the Template that offers an FTP option, Like a page “upload files” and it has the functionality to upload.

Hi, I like this theme. But I have some questions about portfolio single projekt page: Is it possible to add a slideshow? Page fullwidth possible? Can I have the category names there also? Now there is only “Share this…” info. Thanks.

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

Yes, it is possible to add the sludeshow and the category names too but this will be a custom work.

this might be a silly question, but how do you activate the different homepage styles?

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

Create a full width page and add the content of the style you want from get all codes page: http://alexgurghis.com/themes/prometheus/template-pages/get-all-codes/

Hi! Love the theme but would like to know if it’s possible to change the fonts to one of my choosing – even if through the CSS files. My client has a specific font that they want to use for the navigation and body text.

THANKS

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

Yes, this is possible and I can assist you with this.

Hi, first off great job with the theme! It’s awesome.

I have two questions for you, regarding customization.

1) How do I go about replacing the image/pattern thing in the Main Nav with a different color? I can switch it to blue, red, or green, but I was hoping to plug in a custom color.

2) For the 4 Latest Projects module (or any number featured, for that matter), is it possible to change the link text from “Project Details” to something else?

Thanks!

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

1. You can change the color of menu (and not only) in Prometheus Option Panel -> Skin and Colors -> activate the Custom Skin and Colors -> Main Menu Background Color (on bottom of the page).

2. On project admin page you can see on top right corner Optional Link under Project Options, add here the link to the page you want.

Sorry about the confusion, what I meant about the “Project Details” text was the actual text that appears on the project preview. I need to change it to say “Read More” or something along those lines; not change the actual link the text is pointing to.

Themes-Dojo

Sorry for misunderstanding. You make some changes in shortcode.lib.php file located in folder lib. Search dfor “latest_four_projects_func”, line 1312 and change on line 1371 “Project Details” to what you want.

Default-user

Hi Alex,

Sorry to be such a bother, but I promise, this should be my last question/s. I changed the text from Project Details to Read More, so we are all set with that, thank you.

1. I found out that the color for the main nav is actually CSS with an image overlay, so my original idea doesn’t work. How to alter the color of the main nav hover and active state? If you need to see exactly what I am talking about, the website is macraespeakers.com/populate. We would like to change the sea foam green color to a gray color and are having trouble doing so.

2. Secondly, for the “Projects” page, is there a way to modify it so it shows all of the projects on the same page? The problem we are facing is that we currently have 5 pages of projects and when you click on a category, it only toggles the projects on that particular page. If you need to see what I am talking about on the website, it is in the Speakers by Topic Page of the website. Essentially what I am asking is if there is a way to increase the number of “Projects” that appear per “page” of the listing

I thank you so much for all of your help. After these few technical changes are done, we are going live all thanks to your wonderful theme!

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

1. You can change the color of the menu from Skin and Colors from Back End Option Panel “Main Menu Background Color”, or you can change the css, in your case the file “skin_dark_denim.css” line 176

.main_menu .menu li.current_page_item > a, .main_menu .menu li a:hover { background: #12A4B3 url(../images/patterns/pattern-bg.png); color: white; }

2. To show all the projects in one page you have to alter the file “template-portfolio-sortable-4col.php”, line 202

query_posts( array('post_type' => 'project', 'posts_per_page' => 12, 'paged' => $paged));

just delete 'posts_per_page' => 12,

Hope it will help you.

Best Regards,
Alex

Any idea why the frontpage ‘service’ row isn’t going all the way across? see: www.gridsix.com

Alex,

Unordered List items don’t show up as bullet points as expected. Does this have to be addressed through the CSS file, or any idea why not showing up as you might expect?

hey @agurghis, great theme – x2 questions/queries.

1) You have embedded the Flex Slider into the theme somehow – where would the settings for this be? (problem: the permalinks it creates off the fly, are pointing to the wrong place)

2) Is there a way NOT to have the drop-down sub navigation – i just want the main menu buttons, and then the content page will have a sub-navigation system of it’s own.

Many thanks,

J

Themes-Dojo

Hi J,

1. The flexSlider is added to every template-page, somewhere on line 26 (depending on the template page). Can you provide a link to take look? I want to fix this. On my demo it is working fine.

2. About the menu, I’m not sure I follow you. You can control it on Appearance -> Menus. Or you can just add in css:
.main_menu .menu ul.sub-menu { border-top: none; border: solid 1px #E1E1E1; display: none; }

Make sure it’s after it’s original (maine.css line 76).

Hello, I purchased your Prometheus HTML template and really liked it. I normally work with WordPress and am happy to see you convert Prometheus to WP. Question for you: What are there any feature differences between Prometheus HTML and Prometheus WP? And can I run a child theme from it? Thanks.

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

The main feature is that the wordpress version has an advanced admin panel: http://alexgurghis.com/themes/prometheus/template-pages/features/advanced-admin-panel/, shortcode generator, and many more.

RE: Links for slider “I added this feature and now I’m working on documentation. I will update the theme in a few days but if you want it give me your email and I will send it to you.”

Hi its been a couple of weeks and still can’t see an update for this – can you please send me the updated files too – or have them online very soon?

Many thanks, and great flexible theme!

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

The update is up already, just re-download the theme.

Alex

paultranter

Cheers for that – didn’t see any update info under the theme details – but have downloaded it again and can see the changes – great stuff!

Hey Alex, I have emailed you a couple of times – have a couple of issues.

1) On the portfolio page i am using “Sortable 3 Column” – however, some of the projects appear on page 2 or 3 – but none on page 1 for some/most of the categories.

2) When you view a project – for some reason your custom WP Rotator and Twitter do not function.

Hope you can help.

Hi J,

How do you add your own theme\skin? I have created a new css file but do not seem to be able to select it?

Themes-Dojo

To add your own skin.css file you have to add it in admin page and in header.php.

Let’s start with the admin page. Go to folder “lib” and open with a text edit “admin.lib.php” file. Go to line 141 and add your skin (name it). Now open header.php file from main theme folder. Go to line 100 and duplicate:

<?php elseif($skin == "Brown") : ?> <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/css/skin-brown.css" type="text/css" media="screen"/>

replace the skin name with your skin’s name and change the path.

Upload the modified files. That’s it, let me know if it worked.

I purchased this theme, and it’s a good theme, but the documentation is lacking any real information. Alex, could you please explain how you got the homepage setup like on the Prometheus demo page? Secondly, can you explain how to use the featured slider? Mine shows a huge broken image and isn’t working properly. I tried adding a post under the Flex Slider section in my wordpress backend since it seemed self explanatory.. but this didn’t work as expected

Themes-Dojo

Hi,

Have you checked the video tutorials: http://alexgurghis.com/themes/prometheus-e-comm/template-pages/video-tutorials/

About the slider, if the images are broke you have to go to your host, open the themes folder and there the folder lib. Here you will have “cache” folder, give it 777 permission and it will work.
