FYI

When will Theme Forest update their server in order to download the proper file to correct the ‘wp-content/plugins/option-tree/includes/ot-settings-api.php on line 179’ error?

I see 1.9.1.1 and presume it is not the correct version.

Great work and have a super day! :)

Heya Doc!

We’re still waiting for ThemeForest to update our files to the lastest version (we uploaded them yesterday morning) – file a ticket at http://makedesign.ticksy.com and I can send them directly to you in the time being though :)

Hello, Thanks for the great theme. I’ve implemented it at bikefixit.co.nz but the scrolling menu seems a bit fickle. Sometimes it follows, sometimes it dosent. Resizing the browser window seems make it change one way or the other. Any thoughts?

Also I’d love to have a top scrolling “contact” tab like in shapeshifter. Is this possible with shapeshifter 2?

Thanks.

Hello,

Quick question is target=_blank functional in the [feature] shortcode? If not, is there a way to get the button action to open a page in a new window (or tab)?

Thanks

Brian

Hi Bching!

I don’t believe it is… but you can use the actual hard-coded markup for that instead to manually adjust it:

<div class="feature"><a class="button yellow" href="YOUR_URL">BUTTON_TEXT</a><span>FEATURED_TEXT</span></div>

I performed a fresh update and the theme options pages is broken; I only see 4 buttons with no other text or options. What’s up?

I’m sure I’m missing something simple, but I’m using the Traditional Menu, i haveShow the Front-Page Image Slider set to Yes and I have uploaded 2 images. Yet no slider images?

Please help?

Also, how do you add the Contact tab up top like the demo has?/

Thanks so much.

Hi Brenda!

Make sure your Settings > Reading panel is set to show “Your Latest Posts” – once that’s done all of your Theme Option decisions should show up properly :)

Oh and the demo doesn’t have a contact tab… are you looking at the same demo I am?

Cheers! Brandon

BrendaSarg

Yup, I have it set to that…still no slider…anything else?

BrendaSarg

If I click Include the “Welcome” Section at the Top of the Landing Page, then it appears, only I don’t really want that.

Also, it flashes to the second pic blown up huge and then goes to my images sized normal.

Heya Brenda!

So I’m a bit confused… it looks like the slider is working normally on my side… what specifically seems to be wrong on your end?

Thanks! B

BrendaSarg

That’s because I have the WElcome SEction turned on…I don’t want it on.

If you look now, I have it turned off. Do I HAVE to have that welcome part on to see the sliders?

BrendaSarg

meh…I had to put the coming soon back up..I don’t want it seen yet. I’ll email you my login

2 pre sale questions, please…

1- can you put video in the portfolios? 2- will this theme work well with multilanguage plugin such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/qtranslate/

Thank-you for your help.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya House!

1. Yep :) You can launch videos from each thumbnail – either in a lightbox or within a full post.

2. Yes, but I can’t offer support on the qTranslate plugin as I haven’t really tested it a ton yet… I just know that a handful of our theme users are already using it successfully :)

Hi,

I’ve installed this theme on a fresh install of wordpress with the latest version from Theme Forest downloaded today. The theme completely breaks on “Theme Options” and is not configurable. I have tried updating the Option Tree pluggin within the theme files, and installing it externally and it continues to break.

There are so many posts with this problem, all pointing to asking for help on Ticksy which I did 2 hours ago… but cant we share what the problem is and how to fix it?

It would be nice to download this and it works, or at least have access to the fix????

Heya GS – It sounds like there’s a cache’s version of the theme floating around on ThemeForest somehow – can you do me a favor and try a re-download and confirm that the version is 1.9.1.1 when you upload the theme? I just triple checked the download on my side and it seems to be accurate, but the bug you’re reporting is from a version hasn’t been available for over two weeks now ;)

Hi Epicera,

I’ve just downloaded the file again and it is “Version 1.9.1.0” as shown in the theme options page in the admin area. If this is a minor version down could you please send me the latest version. I needed to launch this website today and cannot delay past tomorrow. Could this be emailled to me?

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Brandon,

I just updated to the latest version of ShapeShifter 2, and my main News/Blog page seems to have disappeared…it used to have all of my blog posts laid out in a cool way, but is now only two grey lines at the top.

Do you have any ideas as to what might have happened?

Thanks much, Noah

Heya Noah!

Try re-saving the theme options – OptionTree changed a lot of stuff in the last update, so you might just need to kickstart it by resaving your old options :)

B

Default-user

Thanks, Brandon!

I tried this just now and it didn’t seem to fix the issue. The rest of my site is perfectly fine; it’s just the main welcome page that doesn’t show the blog posts laid out in descending rows of three with “headline” pictures, like it used it to—there are just the two grey lines at the top now.

Is there a new setting I need to engage to make that happen like it used to?

Cheers, Noah

Heya Noah!

Do you still have the Settings > Reading panel set to “Your Latest Posts”?

Yes, I just checked and it’s set to that. I unchecked and re-checked, then saved again, just to make sure…still the same thing.

I have a few odd things occurring…

1) I just downloaded v1.9.1.2 and imported the 2 files in the ‘resources’ folder to mimic the main shapeshifter demo. Everything looks correct except the navigation menu on the left side of the site does not work correctly. If I click the first few buttons, it will scroll down to the correct page. But if I click a button (‘home’ for example), it wont go back up. I can however manually scroll the page back up.

2) When I go to the live demo from your themeforest page, I get a completely different issue. The navigation menu does not stay with the current page. Its only visible from the top ‘home’ page.

3) When you add the new version of this theme to your wordpress site it no longer gives the helpful message for downloading ‘option tree’ and the other plugin that scrolls your page back to the top.

  • I am working on this from my local PC so no link to share. Just wanted to see if these are known issues or somehow just specific to my environment.

Heya PBaily!

1. Got a link that I can check out? Thanks!

2. I’m confused on this one… I just double checked the demo and everything seems to be working fine… could you explain the issue better (or perhaps create a quick screencast?)

3. Correct – Lots changed during last week’s OptionTree updates, so we’re streamlining the theme installation process to be this:

A. Install and activate the theme.

B. Fill out the theme options (the old importer for the “demo theme options” is no longer working, but we’ll have an automatic fix for this in the next update using the new “layout” feature in OT2 ).

C. Create your menu in Appearances > Menus, add any sidebar widgets that you want in Appearances > Widgets, and generally add your own content :)

the rest of this is optional

D. Import the demo theme content using the WP importer, if you want.

All of the new documentation and videos will reflect these streamlined changes later this week.

So, I want to be clear on the way this theme operates, if you add pages in Wordpress, they will show up on this single page and when the name is clicked on in the menu, it will scroll down to that page? No refresh …but a scroll down to that page?

I bought a theme recently that scrolled to some and refreshed to pages I created. I want my pages to show up on the 1 page with a scroll down to them when the menu name is clicked. Is this how your theme operates?

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Ashe!

You can actually have it either way (or both) if you wish – there’s the scrollable menu that pulls pages onto that long scrolling page (shown on the landing page of the demo)... or you can have pages that refresh as standalone pages (show in the traditional menu on the demo).

Hi, I am interested in your template, but when I go on your live preview it says it has a trojan, and my anti-virus blocks it. Same from my friends computer. I don’t feel like deactivating my anti-virus, could you please check ? Thanks, Masha.

Hello there,

I recently purchased this theme, and I seem to be getting the following console errors, and the smooth scroll does not seem to be working on the homepage:

Uncaught TypeError: Property ’$’ of object [object Window] is not a function filterable.pack.js:5 Uncaught TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method ‘easeInOutExpo’ jquery.js:4

Hi, I have the same problem as pbailey8. I didn’t put much content yet, but basically what happens is when you click on several buttons from the scrolling menu, it won’t refresh anymore. Also, it’s everything but smooth.

As on your demo, I don’t see this issue, but from here your logo and dynamic widget area travel back and forth underneath the menu buttons, which looks bad. http://www.kameleonlanguages.com/ Please help :)

I am using safari.

Thank you epicera. There are 2 other things that appeared meanwhile. Really sorry to be such a noob, and thanks for your answer… 1. When I create a gallery, it looks ok on the preview, but when I publish it, instead of publishing the pictures I chose, it takes all of yours, if you look at the page from the scrolling menu. From the traditional menu, if you go to the page, it looks like it was supposed to in wordpress preview. 2. Why do my pages on the scrolling menu again appear next to each other, instead of one after the other, if the test is short? Thank you for all your work again.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Masha!

1. Got a link to the gallery? I wasn’t sure where it was on your site.

2. Try adding this to the custom CSS panel:

#section-content .content_block {
    width: 100%;
}

Cheers! B

Hello! I removed it, that’s why… It was taking 3mn to scroll down. Let me reactivate it so that you can see. Whenever you click on the “Language Courses” page in the scrolling menu, it’s your pictures, when from the traditional menu it is mine. Maybe I just need some documentation about the gallery templates, I’m not sure I am using it right. I will reactivate the pages now so that you can see. Please let me know :) For the 2nd part : I will also do that now. Thank you!

It’s done, the CSS worked. I used the gallery for both “About us” and “Language courses” pages. So you can see on the site all your pictures appear, but when you use the traditional menu and go to the exact same pages, you get what it actually should look like. Any idea ?

Hi epicera, Hi, Is the update on yet? I have so many bugs I can’t work on my website. I have the 1.5 version and on your “update log” the link is not clickable. On the site, the menu is bugged, the scrolling is not smooth, the gallery shows different things in the scrolling menu and the traditional menu, etc. It’s been a week now, and I really need to work. Thanks.

I am having same issues as numerous people above – scrolling menu not working. Through your support this morning I was advised to download theme again and problems are going to be solved.

Well they were not! Theme I downloaded was Version 1.9.5 Again same issues with scrolling menu. It’s little bit frustrating because web site I am working on is online. I am trying to resolve that issue already for days.

Please give us some relevant info when you are going to resolve issue with scrolling menu.

Otherwise everything is good. Thanks.

Hi, great looking theme! Wonder if the following is possible:

Having several different “one-pagers” with a unique leftmenu or could you just have 1 left menu with 1 right page?

Is the following possible?

Example: -www.url.com/onepagethemepage1 which contains left menu: -Home1, Flexible Gridsystem1, Portfolio1 -Each leftmenuchoice scroll to unique right scrollable content for onepagethemepage1

-www.url.com/onepagethemepage2 which contains left menu: -Home2, Flexible Gridsystem2, Portfolio2 -Each leftmenuchoice scroll to unique right scrollable content for onepagethemepage2

Heya Joho!

That’d be more of a theme customization that you’d need to work out on your own actually… what you could do I suppose is setup a MultiSite installation of WP and have two different URLs for two different “sites” that both use the SS2 theme but have different theme options… that might be the easiest way to do what you’re trying :) You can also check out http://freelancers.mdnw.net to find a helper.

Uh, pretty easy actually – to fix most of those low rankings you’d simply need to turn on a free minification plugins and use a CDN ;) We don’t turn this stuff on by default on the demo because it’s somewhat misleading to do that. Oh, and the one thing we can fix (the image dimensions being specified) is being addressed in the 2.0 update coming today.
