I’ve just purchased this theme and it won’t install! It keeps saying “wordpress failure notice” I’ve just paid money for this!! I’ve tried uploading it via wordpress, then I tried via file directory, and the package won’t unzip – It’s getting me mad, how do I install this thing?

Hi Kei,

I’ve never heard of that error before… but you’re the first to have this kind of problem, so I’d recommend trying to redownload and reinstall the theme. Check out the broken stylesheet video as well – http://wiki.envato.com/buying/support-buying/solving-broken-theme-issues/

Cheers! Brandon

How would I go about making the blog posts display entire posts, instead of just snippets and thumbnail-images? I would gladly pay for this help if need be.

Also, I tried registering into your support forum but this wordpress theme is not an option in the “Select Product” drop down menu.

Q1:

Hi there, bought the Sidewinder Theme and installed the Shopp plugin.

The left menubar isn’t scolling anymore and de Grid doesn’t show anymore.

Website is http://webdesign.steur-vof.nl/1/

I read through the forum but didn’t find an anwser.

I also check this article on your support forum but it refers to de Aspire template:

Q2:

How can i change the number of tags/catagories visible in the grid layout?

Brandon can you help and fix this problem, i love the template and it would be great if i got the Shopp plugin working with the template.

@growtobe Thanks so much, that has been bugging me for ages. Epicera’s new theme ‘Reflex’ has the same problem too, so hopefully he fixes it across Flex, Sidewinder and Reflex.

One thing I can’t fix is the pagination. The next/previous buttons aren’t placed at the bottom but just randomly float.

example: http://www.keykreative.com/projects/

Does anyone know a fix for that? I’m hoping Sidewinder gets some of the new features in Reflex. I just got Sidewinder the way I like it and now I’ve become attached :)

Hey, My earlier comments were fixed by me with a little coding action. But a question has arised. How would I make the grid blog show posts from a specific author? I am trying to set up an author.php file and I have it all done, except the feed on that page does not show the specific authors posts, Rather it just shows all the posts. I need it narrowed down, on that author.php to the specific authors posts.

I have figured out an author page, thanks for the feedback I see…

Jayki I fixed the “previous page/next page” issue of it just floating. You want to edit the main ‘index.php’ and take the entire pagination code, it’s like 4 lines, and move it directly below the ‘endwhile’ function. This will make it stick right at the bottom of the loop no matter what.

It will look like this. http://www.minecraftwatermelon.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/asdvadv.jpg

This worked for me and I also got the posts to randomize but I had to insert a “Query_post” function which broke the search, categories and other stuff. So I do not know how to edit it to randomize. But there is a plugin that will do the job for you. It is called. “Post Randomizer”

Other than that the theme is great. Anyone want to check out what I have done with it. Here is my site:

Thanks for checking out my site, and yes I have seen that it is ok IMO also I did not edit the “template_gridblog.php”

I have no idea why yours needed that. Strange.

I have been fiddling with the CSS settings. Theme is pretty solid and everything is commented so I know what I am changing.

Last Question! Has anyone tried a bigger logo than the 260×57 one that comes with the theme? Does it fit, cut off or did you need to edit the CSS margins slightly to make it fit?

Hi,

Nice theme, Im trying to work on it now. Seems easy enough. I actually wanted to ask what font you used on your “reflex” theme. I like the font and would like to know it for a logo.

Thanks

Brandon,

I believe these are bugs.

I cannot get the traditional blog to work in Firefox. It either goes to an error page or it shows one photo. I have the category_filter set up to show all posts. It works in IE. Can someone help?

Also I cannot get the page numbering or previous or next posts working on the traditional blog posts (the individual pages) it doesn’t work in either IE or Firefox. I have tried many widgets and not of them work or they interfer with the menu on the main sidebar by making it disappear.

If anyone can help please post these fixes or css changes.

I believe I fixed the Traditional Blog issue for Firefox but I don’t understand it really. Here is what I did.

I noticed that the page I created for the blog assigned it this url in IE: ?page_id=3594. So I used the edit permalink field in the page post and changed the url from /blog to /?page_id=3594 and saved it. Now firefox is connecting. I also published the page as before I didn’t have to publiish it for IE to see it. Still a strange mess but it works.

Now if I can just get the page numbers at the bottom of the traditional posts to work and the next and previous in the traditional post pages to show. Can anyone help?

Please spend some money and hire some tech support! Although I love your work you should never put out more themes than you can support. Currently you have sold to 615 people x $35 you do the math…I think you owe it to us to get some help.

I have also noticed back in April you made an announcment that all themes were going to have major uppdates (when is this happening ?).

I cannot register my product Sidewinder (according to your December announcement only registered users were going to receive tech support – another where are you with this ?) Sidewinder isn’t even in the drop down list to register.

On an up note the videos are helpful but they don’t answer any of the quirkness that happens within your themes. Relying on others to solve issues here is not good practice.

Okay folks here is the long awaited answer to a question posed 5 months ago and never answered {what a pity}. What is missing on the post pages and transitional blog page is the pagination code. What your missing on your post pages and transitional blog page is the pagination code.

Previous and Next buttons on the non-grid blog {SOLVED}

Open up your template_vertblog.php file and go all the way to the bottom and look for:

<?php endwhile; ?>

Copy and paste the code below starting with <!PAGINATION -> and ending with <!- /PAGINATION—> and inserted into your template_vertblog.php just like you see it. Make sure you leave the secondary sidebar code intact.

<?php endwhile; ?> <!- PAGINATION ->

<?php next_posts_link(‘Previous Posts’); ?> <?php previous_posts_link(‘Next Posts’); ?> <!- /PAGINATION -> <!- SECONDARY SIDEBAR COLUMN ->
    <?php dynamic_sidebar( ‘secondary-widget-area’ ); ?>
<!- /SECONDARY SIDEBAR COLUMN ->
<!- /#ENTRY COLUMN ->

I am also going to try this in the single.php to see if I can use it on the individual blog posting pages. I think it will work If I solve it I will post it there under SideWinder on the support forum.

Now if you want to thank me – please do me this favor. We apparently are all in this together {with no support} so if you solve an issue post it on the support forum so it is easy to find. Don’t just write I solved it and move on. Life is so much more fulfilling if you help others. And for Brandon – I can only thank you for the theme.

See the rest of you on the support forum ~ Peace!

Don’t worry about all the cross out lines on the PAGINATION code above – this discussion site won’t take code very well. So just follow the instruction and use the complete code.
