Discussion on River - Retina Multi-Purpose WordPress Theme

430 comments found

Hello! I have purchased this theme and am trying to create a blog section utilizing the blog content from my previous theme.

The documentation states, “In order to create a blog page, first create a new page and select one of 3 Blog Templates listed in Template field located in the “Page Attributes” section:” My problem is that when I create a new page, there are only two page attributes showing—”Default Template” and “Full Width.”

What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!

Hi there,

Im really caught between loving both ‘River’ & the Dark Theme on ‘Elison’. Is there anyway to have a few features of the following in ‘River’ from ‘Elison’:

1) Make the menu transparent and show the image underneath? 2) The ZOOM parallax effect? 3) The logo rotate in 3D? 4) Portfolio, no space, 4 col, Full width?

Finally, just wondering if you might consider any of the following for the future: - ‘line’ page divider effects? I know youve aimed at only using color containers but wondered if you would consider something like…. http://supremewptheme.com/plugins/supreme-shortcodes/shortcodes/lines-dividers/? - Blog layout using a timeline structure. similar to this: http://www.tienvooracht.nl/themes/?theme=sann

Anyway, I think im going to purchase tonight after work but wanted to ask as many questions poss to avoid me fussing afterwards. Ive been sorely let down on my two previous theme (one of them one of the top selling ‘multi purpose’ themes) in that Support is very much only for those with a strong understanding in CSS. Im a videographer and Creative Director and have little or no time to create my own site but it needs to be creative and bleeding edge.

sorry about all the questions. Andy

QODE

Hi,

1) This already can be achieved in our theme but we don’t have that presented in our demo site

4) This can be achieved with some custom css, it is relatively easy task

We will consider all your other feature requests. Hope to hear from you soon. :)

Best Regards

This is a beautiful theme and I know I’m just scratching the surface of its potential. I did have some problems installing it (entirely my own fault), and Qode’s customer service has assisted me patiently and in a very timely manner through three trouble tickets, in order to get everything set up properly. Thank you, Qode!

QODE

Hey,

Thank you very much for very nice review :) We appreciate it a lot :)

Hi, I opened a ticket on the ticks page. But this seems to faster:

The Visual Composer keeps messing up. Created a new page a few times, but after a few edits, additions of blocks/sections to a page it keeps loading and I can’t access the other sections/blocks anymore (see attachment). How can I fix this? Thanks!

Can the sliding menu on the right be different for depending on the page like many side widgets?

QODE

Hey,

Unfortunately not, as there is only one side menu widget.

I went to edit a page today and was greeted by a notification to convert Visual Composer to the new version. My understanding is that you included some customization of VC for the theme that is critical to it’s working properly. Unfortunately, I don’t see a way to ignore or dismiss this message without converting. Any advice?

QODE

Hey,

We can take a look at the message if you submit ticket to http://qode.ticksy.com/ and include WP admin access.

Qode

Hi Qode

I raised a ticket yesterday on http://qode.ticksy.com about the following but am yet to recieve a reply perhaps you may be able to assist me.

I’m having issues with the htaccess file on my site I think this may be being caused by your theme River.

The theme’s functions.php file has a function called ‘create_post_type’, at the end of that function it calls a WordPress function ‘flush_rewrite_rules’.

all documentation says this is a bad thing to do see https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/flush_rewrite_rules

Does this need to be there as errors are occurring when the htaccess file re-writes causing internal server 500 errors if it does need to be there is there a solution to stop it having to re-write the htaccess file or could any of the suggestions in the included link be implemented and if so how and where?

Thanks in anticipation

regards

QODE

Hey,

Yes, we fixed that in newer theme. You should delete that line and add following code to functions.php:

/* Flush permalinks */

function rewrite_rules_on_theme_activation() {
 flush_rewrite_rules();
}
add_action( 'after_switch_theme', 'rewrite_rules_on_theme_activation' );

Thanks Qode efficient as ever much appreciated, will you be releasing an update of river?

QODE

Yes :) Just can’t commit to any date right now :)

Dear Customers,

please don’t upgrade WordPress to 3.9 until we test the theme with it and until all plugins used with the theme are tested and if needed upgraded to work well with 3.9. We will update theme’s profile when this process is completed (you should check Software Version attribute there).

Qode

can the menu on the right side be taken away completely? and can animations be disables completely? thanks, nice theme

QODE

Hey,

Yes. Go to Qode > Side Area and disable it from there.

Hi there,

I’ve raised a ticket on your support page. Ticket #199432

We’re having a couple of issues with some functionality:

Issue 1 -

Ajax load not working properly. When first landing on the homepage, the spinner doesn’t show. When navigating between pages the spinner shows but the content behind is visible before the page has completed loading and the spinner has disappeared.

Issue 2 -

Blog page is not working properly. Breadcrumbs in header doesn’t highlight the ‘blog’ as active.

&

When clicking on the author link or category link, we would like the header to maintain the breadcrumb style – Currently it reverts back to the original central heading type text in the title-holder.

We would also like to change the current ‘Author: Author_Name’ to the same as the River demo page where it says ‘Articles posted by Author_Name’

Many thanks.

QODE

Hey,

Please make sure all problems are explained in the ticket. Please note that because of Easter holidays we are very short with resources until Tuesday AM.

Qode

sorry double post.

QODE

No worries :)

Hi there,

Our website Visual Composer plugin is not working after the new install of wordpress 3.9.

This problem can be resolved by updating the Visual Composer plugin, however – this is built into your themes.

How can i delete this in-built version, so i can then install the stand-alone plugin which i have purchased?

Regards,

QODE

Hi,

We posted note not to upgrade WP until we release custom updated version of Visual Composer. We are working hard on updating all of our themes. We updated 10 out of 15 themes so far and we should update River in next couple of days.

thx for the info.

Hi, any way to make those circle icons on the homepage be links? Seems like the natural thing to do. Thanks!

QODE

Hey,

Service shortcode supports links.

Qode

Does this theme support Woo Commerce/ / Shopping Cart?

QODE

Unfortunately, this theme doesn’t support it.

Does this mean I cannot install the WooCommerce plugin to add shop functionality? How would I go about creating a ‘Shop’ section with a cart/checkout?

QODE

Hi,

You can install WooCommerce, but it’s not styled and integrated with our theme, so you will need to style it.

Qode

Great theme, how to make the side menu appear on the left instead of the right?

QODE

Hey,

We don’t have such option with this theme and implementing will require both CSS and JavaScript changes.

Qode

how to edit fields of contact form? ie add Company Name field, Phone Number field

Default-user

ALSO, cannot seem to change the highlight color, I edited the color code in Qode settings but it remains as the orange default. How can I change this

QODE

Hi,

Our contact form allows only showing/hiding website field. You can change labels of fields using translation plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/codestyling-localization/.

We can take a look at highlight issue if you submit ticket to http://qode.ticksy.com/ and include WP admin access.

Qode

hi, i would like to center the logo but i want the menu toggle to remain where it is by default on the right. Currently when selecting the Center Menu option in Qode settings both Logo and Menu Toggle are centered one on top of the other.

What is the custom css to achieve centering JUST the logo

QODE

Hi,

You can submit this problem to http://qode.ticksy.com/ so our support can try to help you.

Qode

Few questions, can I globally disable animations – thereby making it more readable in IE8? Would this help for that browser do you think? I think it would help with page loading regardless. Also, can I create a page with a sidebar where the sidebar appears first before the main page content on mobile devices? Would a left sidebar versus a right one be the answers – or can I even do this with this theme. Thanks for all your help.

QODE

Hi,

You can go to Qode options and disable Page Transitions from there.

Yes, you can set left sidebar for page :)

Qode

Hi
Any idea when you will push the update for WP 3.9 You had hoped it would have been ready in a couple of days – That was a week ago.
Thanks
KD

QODE

Hi,

Yes, it will be ready next week, we were not able to finish it before 1st of May holidays, so we will continue to work on it on Monday.

Qode

Hi, how can I have just text colour hover on the primary rather than a background hover colour behind the menu text

QODE

Hi,

This can be done with custom CSS. Please submit this request to http://qode.ticksy.com/.
