Hi guys thanks for the update v.1.3. Is there a change log? What is the best way to update without losing settings and mods?

meks

You won’t loose any data if you didn’t changed the theme files.

You just need to overwrite safarica theme folder via your FTP.

Cheers

I think I did…nothing major though. First time I found a theme that required virtually no modifications to please me :)

meks

Hey there! Just purchased the theme and am working on setting it up. I am totally brand new to this whole self hosting thing so I am going SLOW and learning little by little. I do have one question though.

I would like the blog title (in my header menu) to link to my homepage rather than having a button that says, “Home”. I CANNOT figure out how to do this. Help!!!

Ok then… Never mind…I mashed enough buttons to fix it myself. Beginner’s luck? Sure. We’ll go with that.

Hi I was wondering does your theme supports custom headers such as loading an image for a unique feel and look?

meks

Hi,

Thanks for purchasing the theme, we really appreciate it!

If you think about logo image in header, of course it’s possible to upload yours. Go to Theme Options -> Header and there you will find setting to customize logo and header.

Quick question. What’s best size for featured image in Safarica?

Thanks

meks

Depends of the layout you are using. But, just make sure they are at least 1100px wide and the theme then takes care to fit any layout. We resize the automatically, they just shouldn’t be too small.

I’m delighted by the quality of this theme and outstanding support. There’s inevitably teething problems – conflicting plug-ins etc. – when moving to new theme, but this has been well worth the time & effort. I’d welcome any comments on how I could improve my blog design any more: www.russellwebster.com

Thanks, we have answered you via email on pretty much everything you have asked. If some of other buyers want to give you suggestions here, they are welcome!

Hello,

thank you for this incredible template. It makes me happy :)

I noticed an issue when i want to go to the second page by clicking the number “2” at the footer of the home page. It doesn’t work.

What can you do for me ?

meks

Hi,

Thanks for nice words, it’s good to hear! Your website is looking cool so far :)

We are aware of this issue already and it’s probably not theme related. We have noticed that some comment plugins rewrite permalink structure so pagination on the home page (and only on the home page) always redirects to home page even if the page link is well created.

I’m suggesting you to try some other comments plugin for now, or switch back to common WordPress comments if possible. If we figure out how to by-pass this issue we will put it in the next update…

Hello, I have a quick question. Is it possible to add a custom logo to the top left corner (Where it says Safarica) - Thanks!

meks

Hi,

Thanks for your interest!

Of course, you can simply upload and position your logo image via theme options. You can also have your website title instead of logo image if you want.

Cheers!

I love this template! Is there anyway to put images in the slider on homepage without having it associated to a post? I just wanted a rotating few images that linked to specific links I define.

Thanks! jeff

meks

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for kind words!

Unfortunately, it’s not possible at the moment as our main idea was to make this theme completely WordPress friendly with no custom stuff. But we are thinking to maybe implement such a feature for some of next updates…

Alternatively, you can install some of slider plugins and use it inside “welcome box” option, maybe that can do a trick ;)

This is going to sound like a really dumb question but how do I get a navigation bar/menu to appear on the preview of my site. I have just purchased the theme and can’t seem to change the look of it.

The mobile version of my home page isn’t showing any content. Other pages seem ok like category pages. I’m using the Home Page Template. www.bestoftoronto.net

Please help, thanks!

meks

Hi,

This is strange, something prevents our template to load on home page, this is probably some plugin you have installed on your website. Please contact us directly via support@mekshq.com and we will help you out.

Love this theme, especially the home page design and was very easy to customize for my craft blog. 5+ Stars. I don’t have many posts yet, but here is what I have done so far.

This theme is great, thank you for making it!

I do however have a problem with the dropcaps being removed from excerpts. The shortcodes are removed from the excerpt, which is how I would like it, but the actual letter is also removed which means that the first letter is missing from the excerpts. The first letter (when it is a dropcap) is also missing from the small excerpt in the slider.

Is there a simple solution to this issue?

My site is at http://www.runawaybrit.com

meks

Hi,

Good looking website! :)

I got your point, yes there is an alternative way.

You can select to display “full content” instead of excerpt and then use WordPress “more tag” to split the content inside post editor. See this: http://wordpress.tv/2009/01/14/creating-a-post-excerpt-using-the-more-tag/

Shortcodes are not working in excerpts unfortunately and it is default WordPress behaviour…

If you have any further questions, please contact us via support@mekshq.com

Trying to get in touch with support for a few days now…no luck. Was having many issues that I had to fix on my own through trial and error. Would have been easier and better to actually have some help from the designer. Oh well.

meks

Hi, don’t worry we had all your emails. We were out of the office for one single day. Responded ;)

Hi! I wondered if your theme has different styles/options for different post_formats (http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Formats#Supported_Formats) specifically ‘asides’, or whether it would be easy for us to do this using the options you give. Just that we are doing a site which has two types of content and we are thinking that labelling some of it as ‘asides’ might be really good, so I’m trying to find a theme to support this. thanks!

meks

Hi

Currently, Safarica WordPress theme is not supporting post formats. Maybe you can label content without post formats- some category maybe?

Please let us know your thoughts on support@mekshq.com

Just purchased this theme and something didn’t go well on the install into WP.

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

meks

I think that I have replied you to email, but just in case…

Please make sure that you are uploading only safarica.zip file where WordPress installation is – it is located in zip file that you have donwloaded from ThemeForest. File that you have downloaded from ThemeForest contains other files (for example – Documentation, etc…).

Thank you. That worked.

I should have checked into that first.

I guess I was just excited to get my new theme in place.

Cool, I’m glad that it worked.
