Is there any chance of getting the PSD files for the header images? ie the gallery_title2.jpg, contact_form.jpg and image2.jpg as I’d like to edit them and it would be much easier with the original PSD images.

Great template and many thanks!

All of the main PSD ’s are already there and any additional graphics are provided as transparent PNGs – anything that I’ve left out (IE: the contact button) has been done so because of font license restrictions where I would have had to flatten out the graphics anyways – hope that makes sense :)

Glad you guys brought up the Wordpress URLs. I had to go into the header.php and edit the script embed part to have the full URLs to get it working. Thanks!

Do you have a larger version of the Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, three box logo? Something the size of the red one you have in the main image above?

I am very sorry, but I cannot get the Cu3er to work. I have tried shortening the URL in the html of the “home” page to /wp-content/... but I just keep seeing the logo.

Furthermore, on the portfolio page, when I insert a mediafile as you described, I still the standard wordpress html code and not: gallery[Portfolio], thumbnail, etc.

Do I have to write this myself each time I insert something?

I think I am doing something totally wrong since nothing seems to work and easily inserting an image or changing the Cu3er images is not the case.. :)

Thanks!

Looks like you got it sorted out – as I’ve mentioned a few times here, the trick is to use a FULL URL to the image, not just a relative path :) Hope that helps!

Well.. it only worked when I used the relative path :) So, don’t know why or how, but it’s strange. Thanks!

I got the Cu3er to work now!

I am only wondering how to easily insert new images on the portfolio page.. I read from the instructions that Wordpress should show you the code, right? And, should I resize the thumbnails on my computer to a certain size or does Wordpress handle this?

Thanks again!

Sweet :) Inserting new images on the portfolio page is covered in the documentation – essentially you just need to use the “add image/media” button in the WYSIWYG editor, then follow the format provided. You don’t need to follow it too closely if you don’t want to follow the exact gallery template that I have. It’s pretty basic HTML editing stuff, but you can always use the WYSIWYG editor if you just don’t want to deal with it. Just keep in mind that if you have specific results in mind, it always helps to just use the direct HTML .

Hi, I am going to buy this amazing template. Is great! But first of all I have a question. As all the categories are in one page, if I want to put some news, how is it going to be?

Thanks and congratulations for that awesome work!

Hi, Well.. it almost all works! Great template!

But, does anyone also have the problem that the lightbox (Gallery) does not work when f.e. the Platinum SEO plugin is installed? I deactivated the plugin and then it worked again. Any ideas what could cause this? Thanks

Often one plugin can mess with another if they use conflicting Javascript libraries… I’ve tested this theme for a pretty wide variety of plugins, but the fact is that with tens of thousands of plugins out there, it’s simply impossible to verify that each and every one will play well. Hope this helps!

For everyone having trouble with cu3er, this is what worked for me. At first it did not work, then I added absolute paths to the cu3er config file. That also did not work…

Then, I uploaded the files I needed via the media manager inside wordpress, and that worked. Then, I tried something else. I noticed when you use absolute paths inside the cu3er config file, you need wo leave out the “www.” between http;// and your site. For example, instead of linking this unreal image this way, like I am used to – http://www.whatevr.com/jpg – you link it like this – http://whatevr.com/jpg

Hope that helps!

Great theme!

Thanks for the comment and the information – it’s true that CU3ER can be a little finicky regarding the image links inside of Wordpress, but follow these instructions and everything should go well :) The key here is having a full URL to each image, not just a relative path. Cheers!

hello… i take this template but when i try to write menu in greek language didn’t show anything…

please help me…

You likely need to re-generate the Cufon file to include a font-face that allows for Greek characters then – otherwise you can simply disable Cufon. Hope this helps!

Visit http://cufon.shoqolate.com/generate/ – use a font that you know has Greek characters in it – then follow the directions there to install the new font (you’ll be dealing with the header.php file where the other cufon font is being loaded). Cheers!

One other thing I saw; I can add all kinds of files to the Gallery[portfolio], even Youtube files, but it seems that it does not accept Vimeo files. I know it says that it does on the documentation page and I followed all guidelines, but it seems like the Vimeo files just don’t work. It just keeps loading..

Hmmm… I’m not really sure might be happening with this – it might be worth contacting the author of the prettyPhoto plugin to see what’s up since that’s who wrote that particular script. Cheers!

@ Purchasers:

Any users who bought this who already have it online? If so, please post a link to your site. I find that “real” sites are a good indicator of usability and customizability to me.

@ Epicera:

Is this hard to customize? Will it require code?

Edit: Also, any indication when the blog functionality will be available? That (and an easy way to integrate a widget sidebar and/or a recent tweets plugin) would be my only extra wishes.

I seem to be having a similar issue as someone earlier in the comments… tell me if I am wrong or right…please….well first cu3er does not seem to want to load the images that you already have for it…. am i suppose to do something?

1. Do i need to change the pictures within the folder on my server? 2. I don’t have to do anything to the page that hold the cu3er code…. right?

Im confuzzled …......

Make sure that your image references are full URL ’s, not just the relative links:

ie: http://yoursite.com/image/image.jpg

NOT – image/image.jpg

For some reason, Cu3er inside of Wordpress requires the full link :)

Hey,

this is a great template!

I’m planning to buying it already but there’s one question, what if i ahve a page that is only accessible through registered members. How is that going to be done in this template?

Hope to hear from you soon!

thanks.

On the “Read More” link in the services page, what do we have to do to make it actually link somewhere? Right now it just gives me a 404 error.

Is it possible to link it to a new page that looks exactly like the theme, but its an entire page as opposed to it being on the main page somewhere? I would like to be able to keep the 4 block layout, but I need more room for type. If I add more than 3 lines of type, it throws off the 4 block layout.

Is there anyway to handle this?

1. Re: the link: Yep – This is just displaying how you might link out somewhere with a basic HTML link – where that goes is totally up to each user, if you want a link at all.

2. Re: a new blank page template: At the moment, no. I may decide to add this kind of feature later, but at the moment it’s outside the scope of what’s included in the product as it’s being sold. You can look into how to do this at the Wordpress codex, but it’s not officially supported at this time :)

Cheers!

Great theme epicera!

Is there a way I can randomize the quote displayed at the bottom? (putting php code inside the ‘footer slogan’ textarea)

I could manually edit it into the footer.php, but I was just wondering if there’d be a more user-friendly way.

Thanks!

MDNW
MDNW Author

Hi and thanks!

In short – the answer is yes, but you’d basically have to strip out the existing function that’s calling out the admin panel and add your own custom script. I’m sure that there are a few plugins out there that handle quote rotation, but fitting it into that footer space is pretty much up to each individual buyer if they want to try the customization out. Hope this helps!

Cool, is it possible to send me a quick email pointing me in the right direction? I would really like to do this, and if Im successful I will gladly send you the code to implement if you want. Is it pretty complicated? Also, how much would you charge to do it?

My email is tooslow928 at gmail.

Hi Again,

I have a question; Do I have to use the “

<script>
” code in the google analytics field (theme options panel) or just what’s within these codes? I have installed the analytics code a few days ago and it does not seem to be working. On my other websites it does.

Thanks

Any language can work so long as you can get a supporting font that works with CUFON for the headers – when can be generated from their site for free. :) Right now I just have English primary characters saved to streamline the demo, but following the basic CUFON instructions you can get anything working on there. Cheers!

Just purchased. Installed and up and running very quickly.

Looking forward to the update with more blogging features.

Keep up the great work!
