I am considering purchasing this theme. Can you tell me if I add a youtube vidoe to the home page can I allow audio to play as well?

tommusrhodus

Yep :) That’s what I meant, I think I worded it strangely :)

Cheers!

Hi. I wish to completely disappear the navigation button for web browsing. The problem is that this button also disappears for Responsive navigation. Do you have a solution?

Default-user

Do you have any solution about this bug ? :)

tommusrhodus

I have a theme update booked for Monday 19th.

Cheers :)

Thanks

So we’ve bought the theme, and are having some issues.

1. On a vertical ipad – the intro animating text left justifies, instead of remaining centered. This is when viewing our live site on an actual ipad, not a scaled down desktop window.

2. Also on both vertical ipad/iphone (again, actual devices) the ‘down arrow’ on the slideshow seems to be set to be a certain distance under the intro text, which means that it’s in the middle of the page rather then the bottom of the screen. Can we change where the arrow positions itself so that it’s relative to the section below, rather then the text? i.e. so it’s in the same spot on every version.

3. We’d like to be able to control the speed at which the intro animating text changes, i.e. if we have 5 text changes, 1-4, would be on the screen for 2 seconds each and 5 would be on the screen for 5 seconds – to ensure that our final text makes an impact.

4. I’ve noticed that after the initial visit to the site – because of caching – the intro text will pick up where ever it was when I left the site. i.e. if I go check facebook at #3 intro text, then come back to the site, it picks up again at #3. How can I specify that it always begins on #1?

also, happy to share the site with you privately if that would be helpful

We’ve seen your ticket and will be answering shortly.

Love the theme!

I just wanted to report… It looks like there’s a glitch on your demo? I believe there are supposed to be parallax images in some of the content areas (in the testimonials area, it looks like perhaps there should be an image of someone putting on their watch – also the developer view shows other areas where parallax images were intended but are not displaying).

Are these glitches reflected in the last stable release, or are you guys fiddling?

Also, some of the CSS is a little off for tiny screens (viewing the demo on my Android, there is a lot of white space in the portfolio preview, and the button for “submit” at the bottom is off, for example).

I love what you guys have done, though, and would buy again. I just wanted to bring these issues to your attention.

All care, L.

My last reply initially had more breaks, but themeforest deleted them… argh… Sorry for the wall of text, L.

tommusrhodus

Woah! Awesome! :) thanks so much for taking the time to write that, this will really help improve the theme as you mention :)

Making notes on this now.

Cheers!

You are most welcome! Also: you may want to consider adding an “Agency” home page alongside your current “Personal Portfolio” option (with team members and a separate about section). Just by adding a little bit of extra dummy content, you might land more sales. All care, L.

Hi I just purchased the “Rise” theme for Wordpress and I cannot find the videos that you use to demo the theme in the first top of landing page. Are these videos included? If not where can I purchase them?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The video in the landing page is simply a YouTube video, the header uses youtube to drive itself.

When in edit mode for the page you’ll see a youtube ID entry, here’s the ID you want:

JXOXns_gx8k

Cheers

Problem: I can see the video (large thumb) on my home page AND I can see the YouTube controls (not good), but it is not auto-playing (also not good).

Please advise.

tommusrhodus

Can you please provide a site URL so I can see this in action? Also what browser & OS is this issue in?

Cheers

Fascinated by the video as a background and chose your theme because it seemed simple yet great. Loving it so far! Can you help me with increasing the height of the menu bar? And font? I’ve been unable to find it in any of the editor files.

Hey there,

You could try edit page_home_video.php for this, but this isn’t something that’s directly built into the theme.

Cheers!

that worked. for anyone interested i used: <center></center>

this centered the image and placed it low enough so it wasn’t overlapped by the header. goes directly underneath:

Hi there,

Love the template and trying to make a few custom mods.

Current build is here: fluentvisual.wpengine.com

1) Trying to embed a Vimeo video on the home page (Image Alt) in the spot where the Tagline and Slider are. What method should I use to center or otherwise vertically align the embed? Going for the following look:

http://fluentvisual.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Screen-Shot-2013-04-16-at-12.41.01-AM.png

2) Trying to add a Vimeo “social icon” to the footer widgets. Do you have a Vimeo Icon available for this or can you tell us where we could find these through our WP install? We also looked in the purchased theme folders but couldn’t find them.

3) If you look at our services page…how do we remove the cast from the background image?

4) We would like replace the main navigation text with icons. Is this possible and how?

Thank you

Default-user

Thanks for your reply. We have a few more questions.

1) The video on the landing page looks pixelated compared to the video as hosted on You Tube. Is there a target setting we should be going for?

2) How do we make the portfolio section a black background without losing the cell backgrounds on the portfolio categories? If we take it to a black background, the buttons appear as text only and the text is very heard to read.

3) Thank you for the custom tint CSS. Is there any attribute that can control the % level of tint?

4) The contact form defaults to white text on a white background, how do we change this?

Greatly Appreciated.

Default-user

Whoops…forgot one…the mobile version isn’t displaying the fallback image (several iOS devices). We can kind of see the bottom of the fallback image; but it is mostly covered by a bunch of black. Is there are target spec we should be aiming for in the fallback image?

Hello, I’ve purchased this theme and like it very much, so thank you. However, I’m having problems finding where to change fonts within the main features. Specifically, I have tried using the custom code listed in your ‘Readme’ page to change the font for the drop-down menu but I can’t get it to work:

header.navbar .nav > li > a, #header .dropdown-menu li a {

font-family: ‘Montserrat’, arial; }

I have the Google Font plug-in recommended by you installed but even when I try a standard font like ‘Times new roman’, it won’t work.

Thanks in advance, Georgina

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Regarding your font sizing & styling, this is going to require custom CSS, if you wish to make such changes to your site you can contact our customisation partners using the correct link here:

http://madeinebor.com/content/

Your homepage can be modified using Ebor Template Builder under “appearance” from the dashboard, all other Homepage settings can be modified from its edit screen.

You have a coming soon plugin enabled so I cannot see your site for your first question.

Cheers

Default-user

Hello, I have deactivated the Coming Soon plug-in so you can see the site. Apologies, I guess I thought you had a trick to bypass this!

Regarding the CSS, none of the code I place in there seems to make any difference. Please let me know what I’m doing wrong.

Thanks in advance.

tommusrhodus

Just add this selector via the plugin settings so that you can target the navigation:

ul.navigation li a

My video has stopped playing on Safari. Works great on Firefox and Chrome though. Any suggestions?

http://gazellefoundation.org/runforthewater/
tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The video runs from youtube, so definitely works with safari :)

It will be just a momentary issue, I use Safari 7 also and can see your video fine :)

Cheers!

Hi! I’m having the hardest time changing the color of my links. I’ve added the custom CSS and that didn’t do the trick so I went into the CSS and PHP files to change the default red (#ff4242) to the color I want but it’s not changing anything. Please help!

tommusrhodus

Please leave a ticket with your site URL, and details of which links you want to change, and I’m sure we can help further:

i’m afraid the site is work confidential or i’d send it. I have text box templates in the builder with hyperlinks in them that won’t change. is there a simple answer by any chance?

tommusrhodus

Yeah, with that clarification, no problem :)

.aq-block-ebor_text_block a { color: #333333; }

Should do the trick, obviously change to whatever colour you need.

Cheers!

Hello, I have been trying to contact you. I left a ticket with envato, because every time I try to leave a ticket with you directly, the purchase code in not being accepted. Envato just told me to leave a comment here. Any how, my issue is that I bought your rise responsive theme and I can not seem to find the xml demo file anywhere in the folder. Please send me a link to where I can obtain this file. I have a client who has been waiting for over a week for me to get this up. Please assist. My email is mr.dawodu@gmail. Thank you in advance

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Just go to the “downloads” page of your themeforest account, click the “download” button next to rise, choose the “main files and documentation” option and then unzip it, you’ll find everything you need inside.

Cheers
