FYI – a few bugs:

Internet Explorer 9 – Facebook share button at bottom of posts does not work.

Chrome – Google + share button does not allow to enter text, disappears before you can write

meks

Hi,

Thanks for reporting, we will investigate this and make the fix in the next update.

Also, inside you have “classic” buttons sharing options if you prefer, not just show/hide buttons.

I would like to use a non-standard homepage. So on the homepage, there will be no blog feature. In Settings > Reading, I have set the homepage to the page I want. However – I would like to use the post slider on the new homepage. Is there a shortcode to do so?

meks

Hi,

Thanks for your purchase, we really appreciate it!

Not at the moment, slider appears only on “home page template”. If you want to use slider on normal default page, you can try searching for some slider plugin with shortcode feature. It should work with no problems.

Cheers

Default-user

Could I also move the slider code from the homepage template to another template, since I’m using Full Width for the homepage?

meks

Sure.

I am interested in buying your theme. Is there an option for a slider at the top of the homepage on the Blog 2 Col sidebar?

meks

Hi, slider can be used only on home page. But you can use any of blog variations below the slider. So, yes, you can use 2 col sidebar + slider but it needs to be your home page in that case.

Hope this helps!

Downloaded and tried to install, but got error message: “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

meks

Hi

First, thank you for purchasing Safarica WordPress theme.

You probably need to upload only zip folder of your WordPress theme installation that is located in package that you have downloaded from ThemeForest, this is where theme is located. In this package you have zip file of theme, documentation and demo files needed for demo setup.

I hope that this will help you

Cheers

Default-user

That’s what I was trying to do. It’s when I try to upload the .zip file that I get that error in WordPress.

meks

Extract the main .zip file, find inside package file called “safarica.zip” and then try to upload that specific file.

Let us know if it helps

Default-user

That worked. Thank you :-)

meks

You are welcome ;)

Widgets in Admin not showing up.

When I go into Appearance -> Widgets the available widgets show up but the page does not load the widget areas. I have disabled ALL plugins and still no luck. When I switch back to WP 2012 theme, it works fine, when I load up either the Child theme or the core Safarica theme the widget areas do not show up. Running WP 3.8.2 with Safarica version 1.4

meks

Hi,

That depends which sidebar you have selected to appear for specific page/post. You are probably trying to display some empty sidebar.

To avoid confusion, for each post or page in admin screen you have option to select which sidebar you want to display for it.

If you need any further help, please contact us via support@mekshq.com with your website URL

Hi, I’m trying to embed an instagram photo/video into a blog post, however no matter what I do I cannot center the image.

I tried adding the align, and center tags but it always stays left. To replicate, take the embed code from any instagram.com user such as this one, and try it on the safarica theme. <iframe src="//instagram.com/p/mrl2TDh3ET/embed/" width="612" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

Is it possible to use a custom font? I already have a license for this font and was wondering if I can upload it to use with this site template? Thank you!

Default-user

I didn’t dive too deeply on the licence yet but is it possible for commercial use? And are there fees associated for commercial use? Thank you for your response.

meks

Hi,

Thanks for your interest!

Regarding font, you can manually upload your custom font on your server and then use Additional CSS field inside theme options to define paths and sizes for it. So, it is possible, we can help you with this of course.

For licences, you can check this link or you can contact Envato support and ask them: http://themeforest.net/licenses

I guess, you will need “extended licence” if you want to use a theme in commercial purposes.

Cheers

Is there a default way with Safarica, if I have a page called Apple, and I type something into post content that says, this is the content all about my apples. Then I use the Blog Categories (Check if you want to show posts only from specific categories on this blog page. Leave unchecked for “all” posts.) and the Blog Display Options (Manage post display options for this blog page) and choose the Category Apples and my display options. This works great, however my main content on the page that I wrote in the post content is not showing up. Is there a way to have it do that?

meks

Not sure I understand exactly. You mean if you choose blog page template and put some text inside content, is it possible to display this text before posts listing, right?

Default-user

Yes, that is exactly correct.

meks

Unfortunately, it is not possible at the moment. But, you have “subtitle” additional field where you can specify some more text and description for blog page, or any other page.

You can check here on our demo: http://demo.mekshq.com/safarica/blog-with-sidebar/

The text below main title which says “one column classic blog with sidebar”, you can actually put any description here.

I’m unable to change the homepage layout. It will stick at style number 2 (one post + sidebar), no matter which of the 4 other layouts I choose. I can set & save it in the admin, but then the selected change doesn’t show on the website. Am I missing something?

I am actually trying to achieve a similar setup as in the HOME ALT 2 example.

meks

Hi,

Thanks for choosing our theme, we really appreciate it!

In order to use home page settings you need to create home page template first and select it to be your home page in your dashboard Settings-> Reading.

It is described in more details inside this part of our documentation: http://demo.mekshq.com/safarica/documentation/#home_page

Hope this helps!

Hi!

I love the look of this theme and plan to purchase it but I’m not too familiar with coding or how customizable these templates are. I just have a couple of questions first so I know what I may be able to work with.

1. Can you have blog posts without photo headers? Some of the posts we will have must be text only. How would that work with your design? 2. Can my homepage be a static page? I need the blog to be a secondary page on the site. 3. Is there a way to use the slider on the home page but to have it link to other pages instead of blog posts? 4. The color headers I see at the top of some pages—can those be replaced with my logo or another photo?

Thanks!

Default-user

Sorry…also, is it possible to use a different background image on each page? Or have it where the background image will randomly change on each page load?

meks

Hi,

Thanks for you interest!

Please find the answers below:

1. Yes, featured image is optional. Please see this example: http://demo.mekshq.com/safarica/display-comb-1/

2. You can use static page for home page, but it that case you want be able to use slider because it is reserved for home page template. It will be just regular page. But you can also assign your blog page template or home page template to be some secondary page instead of home.

3. Not at the moment, slider displays posts only.

4. Not sure what do you think. Can you please be more specific?

5. Not at the moment, but we will probably add such possibility in the next update, it is a good suggestion.

If you have any further questions please let us know. Also, we offer customization work for any specific tweaks or features you may want so if you are interested please contact us via support@mekshq.com so we can discuss in more details.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks so much!

I was talking about the color bar with text in it. It is visible on this page of the demo where it says “Blog with Sidebar”: http://demo.mekshq.com/?theme=safarica

Can that be replaced with an image/logo or disabled so that there is no large heading?

meks

Hi,

No, this is the area holding only main page title (or category/tag titles), and optional description.

But, it can be quickly removed with simple code via additional CSS field inside Theme Options.

Cheers!

How can i put the numbers of posts to show on homepage on 6 posts. It shows only 5 posts on my installation. http://wp.newsroom-winterberg.de/

I´ve already edited the template-home.php and set there the number to 6 but it doesn´t work…

There is an option for this. You don’t need to change the file. In your page edit screen in admin you have “Blog display options” box.

Hi

Did you pasted whole link or just video ID – phBLLhzV5oc ? It is well written in field description that you need to paste video ID and select “Featured Video” in featured media options.

I hope that this helps Cheers

I pasted only the ID and selected the “Featured Video” option. Now it works. Thank you.

I have another problem. There´s a WPML language switcher in the menu which disappears in responsive mode. How do I integrate the switcher in responsive mode? http://wp.newsroom-winterberg.de/
