Hi,

You don’t seem to have purchased the item. There is no purchased badge on your comment. Is there any chance you are referring to the Wordpress version?

I am having a little bit of trouble with the banner. How can I stop my logo from being squished when scrolling down?

What I’m noticing is the banner gets smaller (by height) when scrolling down. Notice the “Slowave” icon get smaller while maintaining proportion.

One solution would be to create a smaller icon and use two image files.

The solution I would prefer is to keep the banner the same as I scroll below. Either that, or I could also go with not having the banner chase me down as I scroll down. It’d be okay to keep it at the top. Whatever is easier honestly. It’s not a huge thing for my boss.

Edit: I’m combining my replies into one post.

^^ Sorry for double post.

Hi,

We couldn’t see any problems on the screenshots you sent. If you mean the logo’s getting smaller, it is a design feature, when the menu gets smaller, the logo gets smaller too. We added a fixed height to the logo for this. You can change the height from style.css if you’d like:

.navbar.basic.fixed .navbar-brand img {
    height: 30px
}

Another question:

How do I get the < ... > buttons to disappear?

I have them circled here.

Thanks for your help

elemis

If you paste the following code in style.css the arrows and bullets will be hidden:

.tp-leftarrow.default,
.tp-rightarrow.default,
.tp-bullets.simplebullets.round .bullet {
    display:none
}

Hi,

elemis

Hi,

Wordpress version is released by a different author, TommusRhodus, so unfortunately we can’t know for sure if css and markup is the exact same or different.

Hi! Could you please advise on solution to the following problem with a dropdown menu on Ipad Air and other tablets. After the menu is clicked, it opens and cannot be closed. I tried to close it by touching the screen and by clicking on the empty space, but it didn’t help. I think that the problem lies with :hover. Please do not hesitate to contact me as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.

Hi, great template! How can i put buttons in the header menu? Thanks

elemis

Where exactly would you like to have buttons?

mindthegip

As a menu item (at the beginning or at the end of the menu’s elements)

elemis

You can add a button right before or after .navbar-collapse div with .pull-right class. But you will need to add a custom margin value to this button so it aligns properly with the menu.

Hello, I’m looking over the Portfolio post with audio and I have a question: does the audio have to come from Soundcloud or can it be a MP3/wav file?

elemis

The template doesn’t have any audio player included so an MP3/wav file may not work directly.

We couldn’t see any problems on the screenshots you sent. If you mean the logo’s getting smaller, it is a design feature, when the menu gets smaller, the logo gets smaller too. We added a fixed height to the logo for this. You can change the height from style.css if you’d like:

the logo squish occurs on your preview site too when scrolled to mid page – the fixed height doesn’t seem to help this

is there another way to stop the logo from compressing vertically?

Default-user

and IE but who really cares about IE

Default-user

it’s an issue with the size of the retina logo – it only gets squished when it uses the retina logo

elemis

Could you please provide a screenshot? Because when we check your website we don’t see any problems with the logo after scrolling. It gets resized to fit in the fixed small header, but it resizes properly, it’s not stretched or squished: http://cl.ly/image/0w09281I3v1T

it is possible to make the top nav bar height static? I’d like it to be the thinner scrolling height all the time.

elemis

Hi,

To make the top navbar have the same height as fixed top navbar please add the following code right before “MEGA MENU” in style.css:

.navbar.basic .navbar-brand {
    padding-top: 14px
}
.navbar.basic .navbar-brand img {
    height: 30px
}
.navbar.basic .navbar-nav > li > a {
    padding: 19px 10px
}

beautiful thank you!

Hi Tommus,

We have implemented the slowave theme and it looks great. We have one query. Is there a setting that we can configure to control the speed at which testimonials cycle?

Cheers, Paul

Apologies….thanks Elemis.

Hi.

Great product. Just one question: i don’t particularly dig the picons icons and i would like use another set of icons, After some digging around i realized they are not icons but a font. Thus, if i want to change the picons “icons” it seems i need to create a new openType font. Any pointers on how i go about creating a new openType font? Any guidance will be appreciated.

elemis

The template also includes another icon font (other than Picons). You can find its contents here: http://themes.iki-bir.com/slowave/full/fontello.html If you would like to generate other font icons you can use http://fontello.com/ and http://fontastic.me/

Hello,

I’ve removed the div class=”container inner” on the classic blog page, and when I refresh the page the content initially loads under the nav bar. Where can I modify the template so that the content loads with top padding, so that this doesn’t occur?

Here’s a youtube video showing my issue at 2 sec.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efHP5d4qb1s&wide

thanks for the awesome design!

elemis

For that one you need to remove the “page-title” div (and all divs that it wraps):

<div class="light-wrapper page-title">
    <div class="container inner">
      <h1 class="pull-left">......</h1>
      <div class="navigation pull-right">.......</div>
    </div>
  </div>
Default-user

I ended up keeping the “light-wrapper page-title,” and I didn’t mention that I was using rails. Due to the way rails loads partials the body would pull up into the navbar (as seen in the video) with, or without, the page-title wrapper.

Adding padding to the div solved my issue.

<div class="offset" style="padding-top: 100px;"> </div>
elemis

Happy to hear the issue is solved :)

It is possible to give links to navbar items that have drop down menus?

Default-user

let me clarify, when a navbar item has a drop down its link doesn’t seem to work

elemis

Please add the following code at the bottom of style/js/scripts.js to fix the main menu link issue:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
jQuery('a.js-activated').not('a.js-activated[href^="#"]').click(function(){
var url = $(this).attr('href');
window.location.href = url;
return true;
});
});

you guys are awesome thanks

Is there a way to make a social icon for mail (envelope)?

Similar to: http://i.imgur.com/am2ydWq.png
elemis

You can use the following code:

<li><a href="#"><i class="icon-mail-1" /></a></li>

If you add the following css code in *style.css* then you will have the hover state as the other social icons:

.social a:hover .icon-mail-1 {
    background-color: #aaa
}
Default-user

much thanks!

I’m hoping you can help me with two final questions. (By the way, you guys have awesome support for a meager $16).

Questions refer to blog3.html (Classic Blog)

1. Where do I adjust the responsive css so that when viewing the template on an iPad in portrait view the sidebar drops to the bottom, and the articles span the full width. Image. I’ve tried, but the css is a bit complicated for a beginner like myself.

2. I would like to make the navbar transparent, but only do so after scrolling down the page. That is, when the height of the navbar becomes smaller as seen when scrolling. I’m assuming I need to change the alpha somewhere, but I’m not sure of its location.

thanks again!

elemis

Hi,

1. You need to change the left and right columns which are “col-sm-8” and “col-sm-4” as “col-md-8” and “col-md-4”.

2. You need to add the following code in style.css and apply your color with rgba background:

.navbar.basic.fixed .navbar-header {
    background: YOUR CHOICE
}

How can I make the owl carousel auto play. I tried adding autoPlay : true into the script.js file, but it doesn’t seem to work. I just want it to play a slideshow.

Thanks.

elemis

Hi,

You can add the functionality by adding the following codes to the owl carousel script that you want to make autoplay in style/js/scripts.js:

autoPlay:true,
autoPlay:5000

Further information can be found here: http://owlgraphic.com/owlcarousel/

Perfect. Thank you!

Amazing theme. 2 questions, please.

1. How do I adjust the size of the navigation bar in order to accommodate a much larger logo? 2. Ho do I keep the navigation bar at a fixed height? It currently shrinks and scales the logo during scrolling. I would like it to remain at the original size.

Thanks

elemis

Hi,

1. You can remove the fixed logo height from style.css:

.navbar.basic .navbar-brand img {
    height: 30px
}

2. And remove the following codes that makes the fixed header shrink:

.navbar.basic.fixed .navbar-brand {
    padding-top: 14px
}
.navbar.basic.fixed .navbar-brand img {
    height: 30px
}
.navbar.basic.fixed .navbar-nav > li > a {
    padding: 19px 10px
}
