Ok, thanks! You just aquired a new customer! :)

IndustrialThemes

Excellent! Guess I shouldn’t have given up so quickly, huh? Let me know if I can answer any questions for you along the way. Also, if you haven’t already, check out Socket’s FAQ page here on ThemeForest.

Thanks, Brian

Brian,

Couple items. I updated to wordpress 3.0.5 today and a couple items have come up. The first is that the Flickr and Twitter items at the bottom of the page are no longer showing the items. I checked the F.A.Q and I don’t have the more item on the home page of the site. www.briancoydesign.com

I also am having issues with the form on the bottom of the page. In firebugs it’s throwing an error

$ is not a function [Break On This Error] $('.error2').hide();

This may be causing issues with my booking calendar which is no longer showing on the page.

Any advice or guidance is greatly appreciated.

IndustrialThemes

I’m going to check this stuff out on a test install running 3.0.5 and see what happens…

IndustrialThemes

I upgraded a test installation I have to 3.0.5 and tested Socket. Twitter and Flickr are working, as well as the contact form at the bottom. I do not have any plugins running. Did you happen to install or upgrade a plugin at the same time that you upgraded Wordpress?

BrianCoyDesign

Sure thing. I updated the Akismet plug-in as well. I uploaded Booking Calendar at that time as well. http://onlinebookingcalendar.com/demo/ I’ll make it inactive and see what happens.

BrianCoyDesign

I deactivated the booking plug in and it’s all back to working. Bummer. They say that it could cause conflicts in their documentation. I know it has something to do with the form.

IndustrialThemes

Hmmm, that’s unfortunate. Since all three things that broke (twitter, flickr, contact form) use javascript, it sounds like the booking plugin has some sort of javascript conflict. Did the booking plugin work for you after you updated it?

BrianCoyDesign

no. It’s actually a clean install. I’ll have to see if I can dig in and resolve it at the code level in the plug-in or find something else to use. I’m trying to put in an availability calendar for my freelance projects so my clients can schedule their projects and simply look at availability.

Make a good way to put in vacation time as well. Thank you for checking into it. If I find something I’ll let you know.

IndustrialThemes

Great – keep me informed, and good luck.

BrianCoyDesign

I ended up finding exactly what I needed in this alternative plug-in

IndustrialThemes

Great, thanks for letting me know. I’ll keep that info for future reference.

Just a quick thing I noticed. I’m in trying to limit which items go to nav and clicked on the documentation link and got a 404 error.

Is that folder there on your server?

First I would like to greet them on their excellent work. But I have a problem. How does the slide of the theme socket? Thanks.

IndustrialThemes

You have to give the page the correct template and then create posts tagged “featured”. See the Socket documentation (in your download) and the Socket FAQ page for further details.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Sorry, but my problem remains. I’ve done the whole procedure according to the documentation, but changed nothing. A step by step tutorial would be good.

IndustrialThemes

Can you please try to explain your problem in more detail? I’m not sure exactly what the problem is that you are having. Something to do with the slider…?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Yes, I have trouble making the slide work. A step by step tutorial would be great, because the template is beautiful and very robust. I read something about conflicts in the FAQ on Wordpress version 3.0. I’m using that version.

IndustrialThemes

1) Create a page and give it the correct page template (Template-A, Template-B, etc. – these are defined in the documentation that came with Socket)

2) Create a post and add a custom field to the post named “image”. For the value, enter the URL of the image but remove the root part of the URL (and the forward slash ”/”). So, if the actual image URL is “http://www.yourwebsite.com/files/2010/05/slide_5.jpg” then you would put “files/2010/05/slide_5.jpg” into the custom field value.

3) Tag the post you just created as “featured” (no quotes).

4) The post should now appear in the slider on the page you created in step 1.

Please let me know if this does not work for you and I can help you further.

Thanks, Brian

Everything working, but only displays images of the posts but not the images of pages. This creates an inconvenience to me, because I need to display the contents of the pages. is it possible?

IndustrialThemes

So you are saying that you want the featured slider to loop through pages instead of posts?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Exactly. View from pages and not from posts.

IndustrialThemes

This will require some code modifications to the featured.php file or the piecemakerXML.php file, depending on which type of slider you are using. Do you know enough about Wordpress and PHP to be able to make these changes, or would you need me to do this for you?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Do you can make these alterations and send me the files to overwrite? Is it possible?

IndustrialThemes

Yes, I can do that. For custom modifications to my themes I charge my hourly rate of $50 per hour. This change will probably take under an hour to complete, so probably around $35. Would you like to proceed?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

I agree. How do I pay?

IndustrialThemes

I accept Paypal and you can send it to brianmcculloh@gmail.com. I have a couple questions:

1) Did you modify any of the theme files since you downloaded Socket? If you did, I’ll need your most recent versions of the files to make the edits. 2) Do you want to send me FTP information so I can login and do the change on your server, or would you rather send me the files in question so I can modify them and send them back to you? Either way is fine.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

There was no change in the template. The idea is good FTP . We can do so then. Today I will pay by paypal and send address. ok?

IndustrialThemes

Sounds good. You can contact me at brianmcculloh@gmail.com from now on since we’ll be sharing sensitive data.

I bought this theme last year before the WP 3 .0 upgrade happened. Now we’re on WP 3 .1. Has the theme been updated to be compatible with WP 3 .1? And is the download link in my account the latest version of the theme or is it still the one from before WP 3 .0?

IndustrialThemes

Caulk has not been updated with the newest features of Wordpress yet, however it does still work with the newest version. The download link you have is for the latest version.

Hi Brian,

i had bought socket a few months ago, and it has been really awesome. I recently updated to WP3 .1.1 and the flash slider on the home page doesn’t load anymore. Can you please check it out? Is there a update that can fix it?

IndustrialThemes

Can you send me your URL ?

My website with the problem is:

IndustrialThemes

I need to check out your Wordpress admin to see if the images are in the right place. If you give me admin rights to your install I can check things out. brianmcculloh@gmail.com

Any luck with finding the problem?

I’m sorry, I was out of town this weekend. I’m going to take a look today.

Again, sorry for the delay.

Thanks Brian. For some reason, the slider works now. I don’t know what happened, but it just started working a few hours ago. But thank you anyway for your help.

IndustrialThemes

Wow… uh… good? Please keep me informed of any further trouble. I promise next time there will not be such a long delay before I can take a look (I had an extremely busy last 5 days…) :)

Hi there,

I have this theme here: http://www.santafeelementary.org/ It’s been working fine for over a year but now the homepage slider (jQuery) stopped working.. maybe something to do with a recent WP update to 3.1.2

Have you seen this issue or is it only me?

Any idea how to fix?

Thanks!

IndustrialThemes

That was probably due to the update. It would help if I could take a look at your Wordpress install, and for that I need an admin account so I can login and take a look. You can send it to brianmcculloh@gmail.com.

Thanks, Brian

Was this problem resolved? I have just purchased the theme and can not make the slider work I have tried both jquery and flash options but nothing shows

IndustrialThemes

what version of wordpress are you rnning? also, did you give the posts a tag of “featured” as well as a featured image?

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

I amrunnin 3.1.2 . And yes I have followed the instructions tagged the posts. Tried both featured images and the “image” custom field. None worked

IndustrialThemes

If you send me admin login access to your Wordpress install, I can poke around and see what’s up. You can send them to brianmcculloh@gmail.com

Has this theme been updated since last year? I would really love to see it utilize the WP-menu function. Is that a possibility?

And I never have been able to make the font change, well anything LOL I want change the size, color, weight & the font itself. I usually use the cufon plugin, but I’m not so good with it coded into the theme. Yes, I’m hopeless.

IndustrialThemes

I have not updated Socket since last May. I want to update it to leverage features of the WP3 .0, but due to how busy I am, I have no idea when/if I’ll be able to do that. I can perform the changes for you custom if you want to pay to have that done.

Not sure how you’re wanting to change the font… what are you trying to do?

Default-user

I want to change the font to something else altogether and the color, I just can’t quite figure out how to do that in the code. With the cufon plugin, you upload the font you want to site and then take that file and upload it to the plugin via FTP . Not quite sure how it works when it’s hard coded.

IndustrialThemes

Look in header.php line 100 – that is where the Titillium font is referenced. Use Cufon to make a new js file for the font you want, upload that font file to your js folder, and include it in the header instead of Titillium. Then, a few lines later, you’ll notice on line 109 that the cufon call is made. That should work for the new font. You can modify it a bit if you want. Font colors are all done in the CSS files. Just find where the font is in the template files and change the color for the style for that element.

It seems like the contact form isn’t working!

The Quick Contact Form works perfectly: it sends the message to the website’s owner and the confirmation to the sender.

But the Contact Form (template-S) only sends the confirmation to the sender. The website owner’s doesn’t receive any message!

How can I modify that?

Also, I would like to know how to translate the text in the emails and the text “Contact Form Submitted”, if it’s possible.

Thanks in advance

IndustrialThemes

I tested my demo and it sends both emails just fine. Did you modify any code? Are you sure you entered the correct email addresses? Did you try it multiple times just to make sure?

Thanks for your quick answer.

I dit change a bit of code to translate the theme but tried it on another site. It did the same… I’ll try again and keep you up if needed. I’ve in fact solved the issue by installing a plugin that gives a contact form that nicely fits with your theme (it’s named ContactMe).

I do have another questions though, regarding the translation of the theme:

1) Where can I change the text “search” in the header’s search form? 2) Is there a way to use poedit to translater the theme?

Thanks in advance

IndustrialThemes

Line 299 of the header.php file has the “search” text. Unfortunately, Socket is not translation ready. You would need to wrap all of the text on the pages with __( or _e( functions to make it translation ready, then you would be able to edit with poedit.

ladolphinconnection

Thanks for your quick answer, Brian !

Unfortunately, it didn’t solve the issue. Line 299 of the header.php is a div class=content.

Search is in between the lines 270 & 281. In fact, I already found this parcel of code, tried to change the value (and everything else!) but didn’t managed to change the “search” text.

IndustrialThemes

Not sure why our line numbers don’t equal. Doesn’t matter, must look for this

<input name="s" id="s" value="search" type="text" onfocus="if (this.value == 'search') {this.value = '';}" onblur="if (this.value == '') {this.value = 'search';}" />

That’s where you change it. change the ‘search’ to whatever you want.
