I suppose your question is related to the Cold Theme. I’m sorry, but I don’t know this plugin and I don’t know how its photo pages are looking now. I need to see some example to answer this question.

Hello. I am helping a friend out with this theme but when we install it there is an error that states: “Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/69/9132669/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/Shiny Package/shiny/admin/theme-options.php:1) in /home/content/69/9132669/html/wordpress/wp-includes/functions.php on line 861

Can you help us to fix this problem

Of course you can change the theme code – you can make any modifications you want. You can add plugins from any source – the theme has nothing to do with plugins. You can replace theme icons with your own with no problems – you just need to replace icon files.

Hi,

I’m Really enjoying this theme so far, but I need help on a few things.

I am making a site for my family’s funeral home… the temporary url is www.morrisnilsenfuneralchapel.com

I would like to disable the post date and certain categories from the recent blog posts on the front page full width display. Can you tell me what I need to edit to do this?

Thanks!

You can’t exclude categories from the recent blog posts shortcode, but you can provide the list of categories to display – just use the ‘categories’ param, for example:
[recent_posts_images_scrollable categories="current"]
Please note that you need to provide category slugs, not names. To disable the post date from the recent blog posts shortcode add the following code to the Custom CSS box (Theme Options -> Styling Options):
.fancy_date { display: none; }

Hi again,

I don’t see a single.php file to edit a single post. I am using a custom field editor plugin and have to put in the code to display my fields on a single post page.

Thanks :)

You can add your custom code to the ‘index.php’ file.

I have added my code after “the_content(’’); ” in the index.php but it isn’t showing up…

Is there somewhere else I can add it?

Find the following line:
<?php if(!is_single() && $e404_options['blog_read_more']) : ?>
and BEFORE this line add your code:
if(is_single()) {
// your PHP code here
}

First let me say this is great theme. I love it. I have installed it on my website www.dvd17.com/blog When I change the setting to make the blog as the default page www.dvd17.com it takes the setting but the old site is still live and not the new Blog. Do I have to delete all of the old HTML pages to get it to work? I am trying to keep the old pages because they are indexed by Google. Second Issue, I have added the sample data to see how it looks but most of the images are not working. I have tried to replace them myself and I am having the following issues. 1- http://dvd17.com/blog/gallery/gallery-with-galleria/ the images are not showing up ad I have tested each image URL in the browser and they work 2- this is another example where I don’t see the image/thumbnails but when I click on the link I see it in the light box. http://dvd17.com/blog/gallery/scrollable-gallery/

This is the text: [galleria_images thumbnails=”true” height=”676”] http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/anemone.jpg;Photo title http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/paeonia.jpg;Photo title http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/coccinella_septempunctata.jpg;Second photo title http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/hoverfly.jpg http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/campanula_with_waterdrops.jpg http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/calliphora_vomitoria.jpg http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/uniformity.jpg;Photo title http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/paeonia.jpg;Photo title http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/coccinella_septempunctata.jpg http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/hoverfly.jpg http://dvd17.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/hoverfly.jpg [/galleria_images]

3- when I try to add images in the editor, I clicked on ADD MEDIA , then I selected the image and I hit INSERT SELECTED IMAGES , then SAVE ALL THE CHANGES , then I hit the X on the top right corner but nothing get inserted. What am I doing wrong?

I don’t think you need to remove all old HTML pages, but you’ll definitely need to remove your old the index.htm file.

1. Your images URL are incorrect – there are some unnecessary ‘code’ tags. Please edit this page and switch to the HTML editor to see what I mean.

2. You are using images from our server and they are blocked by TimThumb as external images. Please change images to your own and all will be working fine.

3. It’s not a theme related issue. In general the ‘Insert Selected Images’ button doesn’t work very well (for example I can’t get it working on all my WP installations, doesn’t matter what theme I use).

The images are on my server not on the remote server. When I installed the sample file it installed the sample images.

Can I send you a private email with my user name and password or do a join.me session to see how it is working.

Thanks

Yes, all images are imported, but there are also images URLs in the page content (for example here – take a look at the page source).

Of course you can send me an e-mail using the contact form on our profile page.

How can I add a link to the ‘Buy Now’ button on the price boxes? Can’t find it in your documentation.

Hope te hear from you. Thnx!

boraboramedia

I tried ‘URL’ and ‘link’, haha. Thnx!

Just for future reference: if you want to know all shortcode params you can use the Shortcode Manager or take a look into the documentation.

I did and will do, but this one was not presence ;-)

Thanks for a great review. :)

Hi again, I’m having trouble getting my images to appear appropriately with the accordian slider on my site www.morrisnilsenfuneralchapel.com. Can you give me some tips?

If you want to use a different sidebar on a single post page you need to pick it for each of your posts. You can’t set it for all posts without some theme modifications.

To delete your custom sidebars go to the Appearance -> Sidebars and click the ‘Delete’ link next to unwanted sidebar. If you did it and it didn’t work please tell me if you get any error message.

ericaeide

Ok, thank you.

I did those steps before and I get a confirmation message that says the sidebar was deleted, however, it is still there, even after refreshing, logging out and back in, etc.

I want to add a custom footer background to style theme: style_01. How can I do that?? thanks.

If you want to change the footer background color you can use the theme admin panel (Theme Options -> Styling Options -> Footer Background Color). If you want to set a footer background texture you need to use a custom CSS code. Please add the following code to the Custom CSS box (Theme Options -> Styling Options):
#footer_wrapper { background: url("http://your-domain.com/wp-content/themes/shiny/images/bg/bg98.png") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent; }

Of course you need to change the image URL .

That worked….thanks.

One more thing…I cant get the bottom footer color where the copyright information to change to the color I want. How can I do that. Thanks.

How do I change the blue tab to red in the tab box that’s on the homepage. See example photo: http://ypchop.org/ypchop/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/homebox.jpg

There are few color options for tabs in the theme admin panel – Theme Options -> Styling Options -> Tabs – Links Color (and the rest with ‘Tabs’ in a name).

thanks

Hi,

I’ve tried to make a child theme, but whenever I activate the child theme, I get this error:

The Shiny Theme doesn’t support child themes. However you can add your own CSS code to the Custom CSS box (Theme Options -> Styling Options) – this field is not erased or replaced during the theme update.

“It requires no coding skills, but it also gives a lot of possibilities for experienced developers.” Right. Bought this yesterday, and problems from the start. Seems to be no provision in the theme options for using text for the site title. Seems to want only a logo file. Delete the logo and the site title set in the dashboard appears alright, as a small link where the ‘shinytheme’ logo was. I could find nothing specific in the documentation. Oh, I’m sure it can be fixed – by coding. This is basic stuff and this is the first theme I’ve used where setting the blog title text attributes is not available in the theme options settings. In fact, since installing the theme, working with it, and reading over the documentation, it appears to me that most of what appears on the live demo requires coding at some level. Looks like $42 wasted.

I’m sorry to say that, but you are wrong. The theme requires no coding skills – almost everything can be set up and configured using the theme options panel or using shortcodes. You can easily recreate our demo website using the sample content file included in the theme package – I know I’m right because I did it few times. However if you want to put a text instead of logo image there is no way to make it happen without some small template modification – we just didn’t anticipate that someone would like to have a text instead of an image. Of course I can help you with that if you want.
