Hi Whoathemes, good work with this theme! just a question: I understood that to have a video instead of the slide in the homepage, i have to set anything slider… But I can’t understand how I have to continue, I have to upload my video and give to anything slider the url? Or what?

whoathemes

Choose from RandF -> Slideshows Anything slider and set “Slide Item Type” to “Slide item with html” and there paste your iframe code. Only youtube and vimeo are supported.

Hi. We were working on our site using the Retro template and realized that the images on the home page carousel do not hyperlink – they should navigate to whats entered into the “Slide Link” box on the back end correct? Please help!

Thanks

Hi,

You need to go to RandF -> General -> Custom CSS or to styles/screen.css and paste the following code:

.nivoSlider a.nivo-imageLink {
    position: absolute;
    top:0;
    left:0;
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    z-index:101;
}

Thanks

I purchased this theme about a month ago and really love it. Have been constructing a site and have had no issues, until now :(

Just now, i’ve been trying to add images using the IMAGE shortcode, but when i click the ‘insert image’ button, the dialog has a mega weird error! here’s a sceenshot: view fullsize: http://mickfx.net/stuff/Shortcode_error.jpg

Tried re-opening my browser. Recently updated wordpress to the latest version, maybe it’s that?

whoathemes

Hi,

Yes, was a problem with the last version of wordpress. Please download the theme again.

Thanks

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response. Weirdest error message ever, haha!

One more question: I’ve downloaded the theme again. How do I update? Do I install this new version of the RETRO theme and activate it? Or is there another way to update?

Will I loose any settings if I update?

whoathemes

Yes, you can upload again and you all the settings remain the same. If you are using ftp for upload you can replace only in \framework\includes options.php and metaboxes.php files.

Thanks so much, I uploaded and replaced only those 2 files and it’s working great. Really appreciate it! Cheers!

Hi again! Just another quick issue I seem to be having with this theme. I cannot seem to change the excerpt of a blog post? The excerpt for a blog post seems to be automatically created when the post is first published but i cannot update or change it!

whoathemes

Strange. I’ve checked again on my server and it’s ok. Ccan you give me wp access on randf_projects@yahoo.com to take a look?

Hi Whoathemes,

Having a little bit of a problem when using the Meteor Slides plugin on this theme.

www.cafetoulous.com – here is the site

The problem only occurs in Firefox, but when I hover over the slider it pushes it down by around 20px. Any idea how I can resolve this? I presume I need to add a bit of code to the stylesheet? Thanks

whoathemes

Sorry I forgot to click on reply. Please read below

Default-user

doesn’t appear to have worked unfortunately

whoathemes

Can you give me access to wordpress to take a look?

Default-user

Afraid I can’t give you access to Wordpress unfortunately, the project is for a client of mine, and they don’t want their login details shared :-/

Default-user

Another quick question, is the Custom Background slideshow only available via an update? as the version I have does not appear to give me the option of adding multiple background images when I go into Appearance > Background

Many thanks,

whoathemes

Hi,

I found the slider problem. It’s from next and prev button.

.meteor-slides ul.meteor-nav {height:0}

I’ve tested in Firefox and chrome. Please take a look in the rest of the browsers. If it doesn’t work try with height:0!important; also

About the background you have upload button but in RandF -> Background

Hi, i want to know if i buy this template it brings all the contents (menus, photos, etc…) that you have in your demo!

whoathemes

Hi and thanks for for the interest to buy this theme.

There is a demo.xml file provided in the main download of the theme but the images are not included. There are just blank images as placeholders. They are copyrighted and I’m not allowed to redistribute them. I’m making an update today also where there will be added google fonts option in the framework.

Thanks

Hi, i bought your template. Nice work… I want to know how can i configure the google maps. I want to show the sattelite view and not the map view. Its possible?

whoathemes

Of course… When you generate the google map shortcode you must choose “Google earth satelitte” fot Maptype.

Thanks for your replay. How can i generate a new google maps shortcode?

edit: i have found the solution… thanks ;)

edit2: it doesnt work, i put [gMap width=”542” height=”300” address=”London, Great Britain” zoom=”14” html=”London, Great Britain” maptye=”Google earth satelitte”] but still showing the same view, not the sattelite

whoathemes

Try to generate it and not copy/paste. You can generate every shortcode below the wp editor on every page/post. There should be – maptye=”SATELLITE” -

Hi, I’m having an issue with the Shortcodes. None of them are working. When I select, “Send Shortcode to Editor” it doesn’t do anything.

No text appears in the editor. Can you please help me to resolve this?

whoathemes

Hi,

Please download, extract and replace the following file in retro/framework/includes and should work. If not, send me login details through Themeforest profile and I will take a look.

The shortcodes are still not working. What is your email so that I can send you the login details? I need it fixed asap. Thanks.

I just sent you a message here with the login details.

whoathemes

Hi,

Just checked and the shortcode generator works. The shortcodes are sent in the editor (be sure to click first in the editor on the position you need your shortcode to be sent). Tried with firefox and chrome.

Just a few questions

Is this supported on WP3.5 & is this compatible on mobile devices?

Thanks – this looks awesome!

whoathemes

Hi,

Yes it’s compatible with Wp3.5, but isn’t compatible with mobile devices.

Regards,

Whoathemes

bpittam

Thanks – any plan for that update?

whoathemes

I’m sorry but there are no plans. I’ve just finished the responsive framework and implemented it on SoGood (another theme of mine). It will take some time to integrate it on Retro and it doesn’t worth. Probably if I would have had at least 100 sales…

bpittam

Not a problem. With the home page as it is, I like the layout, but is there way to minimize the “Welcome to our website! – We create awesome stuff -” panel, to show the full Background image?

whoathemes

I think we can do this for you. Thanks for your interest.
