The above is a similar format to the email address I am using. It displays the email address with the proper css, but does not display the mail icon. Is there any known issues/fixes for this?

Thank you, Dann

I figured it out. You should enter shortcodes such as this in the the HTML View of Wordpress.

I’ve been setting up a new site for a customer using this theme at http://www.aslcrevolution.com but I seem to be having some issue with the main navigation not rendering correctly. I’m not sure if its an incomparability with WP 3 .1.1

As far as I can tell the issue might be in the header.php when it calls wp_nav_menu for some reason no matter what I do its wrapping the ul in a div it also seems that the theme is not being applied to the menu correctly.

I’d appreciate any insight you might be able to provide thank you.

Never mind I figured it out. The documentation needs to be updated. There is no section labeled Navigation under the Theme Options. It wasn’t until I poked around the other WP controls that I found that there is a section under appearance named Menus. This may be due to the fact that it’s been a while since I’ve worked with WP. But was pleasantly surprised to find that once I defined a menu all of the issues I was experiencing went away.

I am very much impressed with the theme, But when I go through the comments you have lot of tweaking or modification in the theme.

Can you please tell me when you are uploading the updated copy with all the changes

The theme works fine at the moment. Most of the comments you’ve seen are from people who wanted custom work.

In homepage can we make the whole service box clickable instead of adding a more link

It’s possible with a minor code change. Send me an email from my profile page http://themeforest.net/user/Bluz

and send me a link to your site and your wordpress admin and password and I will make the changes for you.

Hey Bluz,

I just got the theme and I’m having some problems installing the dummy content into my fresh wordpress install. Whenever I try to upload the .xml file it gives me:

Sorry, there has been an error. The uploaded file could not be moved to /var/www/vhosts/virtuallycreative.ca/subdomains/blog/httpdocs/wp-content/uploads.

I’ve double checked with FileZilla and “uploads” permissions are 777 so I’m curious as to why I can’t get the content working?

Any insight would be appreciated thanks!

Their shouldn’t be any problems. Try to repeat the process and see if it fixes it.

Hey,

Thanks for the reply. I tried it again and got it to work. I had to tell WP that wp-content/uploads is the folder to use and then it allowed me to save the ch-mod settings to 777.

I am having another issue though, unrelated. I’ve set the homepage of my blog to the pre-made “blog” page and another created page as the post page. This is great but the pagination at the bottom doesn’t seem to actually paginate the posts on the home page. Any ideas?

http://blog.virtuallycreative.ca/ is the blog link.

Did you made any changes to the code ? Try using the original Template file for the blog before any coding changes ?

Vip3rousmango

All I did was remove the slider by default.. Even with the dummy content, I couldn’t get pagination to work. Is this a settings issue or something in the code itself?

Also, I’m experiencing image issues with the thumbnail plugin provided with the theme. I can get images to display fine in Firefox 4 RC (Win7/AMD64bit) and Safari (Win7/Latest Version) but some don’t work in Chrome 3.6 or IE9 (I don’t care about 8/7/6) when I tried the pages out and they displayed in the working browsers.

Lastly, the posts in the portfolio page (named tutorials on the blog) are breaking the GRID view, but not all posts are having this issue. Is their a way to make the portfolio display LIST view by default instead?

Sorry about the long message,

Thanks so much. The support is very appreciated.

Hello,

I can’t get the portfolio images to load – even using the “dummy” information from the template.

Thank you for your help,

Hello again Bluz,

Just to clarify, I loaded the “dummy” info you supplied to get most of the theme details worked out. Everything but the Portfolio worked out of the box. Here’s what I did with the Portfolio stuff – but it doesn’t seem to work – not even with the dummy stuff – which is why I wrote for help. Am I missing something or is the timthumb just not working? The server is running PHP v5.2.14 and it doesn’t seem to work on any browser – but I can see your portfolio with thumbnails on the Robust sample site.

1. I created a page, called it “our clients”, chose “portfolio” for the template, and chose the category “Client List” to appear on the page. (This all WORKS .)

2. I created a post and chose the same category (Client List) and on that page, I looked at the variables & put the long url to the image file in the “full_image_value” field but it doesn’t ever load the thumbnail.

Here’s the page I’m looking to create. The page I linked to in the last message I left is the dummy page. Neither are working.

http://publicstrategygroup.com/our-clients/

I saw another variable in the custom variable drop-down called “portfolio_value”. Is that used in this case? I tried using that as a last-ditch effort but didn’t seem to have any effect.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Jean

For some reason the Welcome Content Box is not showing up on the homepage – am I missing anything? higherphoto.com

Actually the slider is in front of the Welcome Content Box – any ideas how to fix it? Thanks!

The content for that welcom box is entered from the theme’s admin panel.

I do know that, the problem is the Content box is being hidden by the slider – I can’t figure out why – I already turned off all the plugins and re-installed the theme – same thing is still happening though. So – just so we are on the same page: http://higherfilm.com – the content box has information there – the slider is covering it up though. I do appreciate your time in looking into it! Cheers!

Bluz,

Why no response to my issue? It’s been over 3 weeks :( LAME .

I had to make due on the client list page, but would like the portfolio portion of the theme to be working for future.

Hey There,

I’m having an issue with iFrames. When I copy and paste an iframe into the body of one of my pages, it cuts off the #nav-finsih, or tip of the navigation bar in the header.

If it’s on a sub page, it also cuts off the tip of the #pagename, any help? Why are the tips (on the right side) of these elements disappearing because of an iframe in the body?

Thanks!

Travis

Hey there,

Is there a way to change the tagline font (it’s cufon, so I don’t know how to edit through css) from black to white?

Thanks! :)

It’s simply changing the css.

Hi Bluz

First off, great theme, far better than anything else out there. :)

I also have an issue with the portfolio images not loading (like jeenie), the loading icon just spins around. Secondly, the plugin ‘contact form 7’ seems to be clashing with the theme, where you should see a code snippet to paste into your contact page, it’s just blank.

Bluz, do you have any fixes for the above issues?

Kindest regards Rich

BTW , if you need the login credentials to my WP site just scoot me an email.

Bluz – update

Got the issue with the portfolio sorted, I was missing the post image URL .

Still got an issue with Contact Form 7 but got the standard email submission form working. Would still like your feedback on CF7 .

Third issue found, when opening an image in the portfolio section the images are really dark and the close button doesn’t work, again am I missing something?

Kindest regards Rich
