Hi, really love the theme – recently, however, I upgraded to version 2 and I’m having conflicts with a few plugins and the featured content slider. The slider worked well before with the previous theme version. Specifically, I’m having conflicts with “Fancybox for Wordpress”, “Google Analyticator” and “Login with Ajax” plugins. Help please. Thanks.

feeleep

OK, please create a temp Admin account for me at your website so I can have a look and rectify the problem. I’m sure there must be a way to cease those conflicts. Thanks!

I really, really love the layout for this site!

I’m having one issue though. The SOFA Twitter widget isn’t working. It’ll show the graphic with the bird saying “Follow Me!” but when I put in my twitter username, no feed is appearing.

The generic Twitter widget provided works when I use that… so not sure what’s wrong with the SOFA Twitter widget.

BTW , I’m not sure if this is happening because you’re fixing the theme right now on my site … but all the colors of the links on my site have changed.

Links are showing up on the right side of my website in blue font and I’ve never seen those appear before. Its a long list, with links to: My Account, Personal, Friends, Groups, Favorites, etc.

Not sure what this is or why its appearing all of a sudden?

feeleep

No I wasn’t doing anything with your website…not yet, please be patient a while. There are 3 requests before yours. However, we shouldn’t edit template files in the same time!

I have had your sofa rooster them for my blog for a couple months now and love it.

Current issues have risen:

When posting video html in the post html box, as soon as i click back onto the regular post tab the html changes and and teh post does not show video on the blog home page adn posts. Now it only shows the title of the post which links to the actual post ’s page.

How do i get it to post the video onto the actual blog homepage so it shows along with all the other posts i post?

I like to have the content avail. right when the url is typed in rather than someone going to the blog and not seeing the video right away..having to click a title to be taken ot the blog post video.

Many thanks!

To be honest, that’s the most confusing case I’ve ever heard. Of course, if well understood. So you are saying that Post content is changed or even gone upon Save – if the video was embedded to the content.
As far as I know, WordPress does allow video embedding and knows how to handle it. I also know that if not allowed HTML tags are found in Post content – WordPress will strip it down before saving to database.
Basically, I can only speak in general while the problem of yours could easily relate to something else. That’s why I’d like to suggest you to create a temp Admin account for me, send it to my private email address and I’ll have a look at that critical Post. By doing so we both gonna find out what exactly is the problem. Thanks!

stevstar Purchased

Ok. sounds good. email me your temp address. you can reach me at stevstar42@yahoo.com.

you’ll notice that the last few posts only show the post title without any video embedded. if you try to post a video from say youtube or vimeo as a new post once youre in there, youll see it alter the html once you move back over to the non html posting section. links on the post title take it to the post page which is normal but i need it on my actual post thread page as well. Thanks in advance.

p.s. I also need help puttnig in the features option with the slider.

To be honest, I don’t know why it doesn’t work because I didn’t test it. Feel free to send it to my private email address and I’ll have a look.

I want to add an “About me…” section like you have in the screenshot section (http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/57508-sofa-rooster-wordpress-theme?index=1)

I can’t seem to find a widget that allows for this.

What am I missing?

Thanks, Jeff

feeleep

That’s nothing more but a default WordPress’ “Text” Widget. So all you gotta do is to add it to index page sidebar, get some text (can be HTML too) and spice it up with an image.

Hi, great theme! However, I am having trouble creating a custom nav menu i.e. Home, About, Hip Hop, Street Art and Fashion based on my categories. My site is endeerdesign.com. Could you help me? Cheers, Lisa

feeleep

OK, two things:
1) Menu in Header must be named “Main menu” while the one in page footer must be named “Footer menu”
2) From Dashboard select Appearance > Menus and rename both
If you don’t know how to work with Menus, have a look at this great video tute, everything is really well explained: http://youtu.be/Idt7oyCD1qY

Thanks so much Feeleep!

feeleep, Thanks again for all your excellent support. This theme has the best customer service. I’ve been really impressed by how quickly you respond with the fixes to all my problems.

I appreciate it!

feeleep

Thanks, I appreciate your feedback a lot!

Question before I buy: In the red boxes that contain the date of each blog post – can I write something in there instead, like “Episode 37”?

feeleep

Well, it is possible to replace the date with some other dynamic data. Did you mean to enter this information manually (for example by using Custom Fields) or simply use Posts ID? Either way, it can be done.

Hi there, first off – I love the theme! Everything is very easy to follow and it was simple to get it up and running. However, I’m having 2 issues that I can’t resolve because of my lack of PHP knowledge.

1. How do you exclude a category from posting to the homepage? 2. I am trying to use an events calendar plug-in, and I’ve tried several, but they ALL make the featured content slider stop working. My guess after reading other comments here, there is a clash with the PHP code.

Could you help fix this?

Thanks in advance.

feeleep

Sure I can take a look! Feel free to create a temp Admin account for me and send it by email. Don’t forget to include your TF user name and a short description of the problem. Thanks!

Hello,

I purchased this in april 2010, if I upgrade it now will it default the settings?

Default-user

great, thanks for the reply

Default-user

how do I remove the rooster categories sidebar, in the categories naviation? I prefer the look and feel of the widget for categories

feeleep

Did you upgrade your theme copy? If true, you should be able to use WP Menus instead of an old navigation system.

Hi there, The homepage on my website endeerdesign.com seems to be funny. I want there to be 10 wide boxes and no narrow boxes but as you can see, the narrow boxes are still there. I changed the ‘reading’ settings to ‘blog posts show at most:10” and ‘sydication feeds:10’. The number of wide boxes is also set to 10. Would appreciate help as i’m confused :S

feeleep

Please drop me an email that will contain URL to your website. It’s always good idea to create a temp Admin account for me so I can debug code and see where exactly things take the wrong turn.
Don’t forget to include the above message to an email. Thanks!

Actually, problem solved! :)

Great theme! Thanks! I’m trying to add the Featured post. The instructions says to look for the Custom Fields Panel below the Post write Panel. However, although everything else is working fine, there is no Custom Field Panel present. I have selected Yes for Featured post under Sofa options. What am I missing?

feeleep
Since version 3.0, WordPress keeps all of Post/Page panels hidden. It means you should unhide it from Screen Options. Have a look here:

Hi Feeleep,

Can you tell me please, how can I modify the space between the paragraphs ? When i press enter i would like to jump to the next line, without leaving any space between the lines.

Also , can i set-up somehow the first line of the paragraph to have a left padding ?

Thanks!!

feeleep
You’ll have to open “style.css” for edit first. Go to line #301 and fine tune ‘padding’. Please note that more than one element is bound to the same style so I guess it’s better idea to split it up to something like:

.content-details #main-content ol, .content-details #main-content ul, .content-details #main-content dl {
    padding: 0 20px 18px;

.content-details #main-content p {
    padding: 0 NNpx 18px;

Note that “NNpx” above, that’s what you should change. Leave 18px side paddings as is! In order to make the first word in a sentence left hand side padded, wrap it up with SPAN element. Something like:

<p><span class="paddedleft">Firstword</span>Cras non libero ac lorem lacinia malesuada nec id felis. Maecenas rutrum porta fermentum. In quis convallis ligula. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Donec diam dui, viverra sed suscipit ut, sagittis eget libero. Etiam blandit velit at dui mollis malesuada...</p> 

...and add the following styles to (let’s say) the bottom of “style.css”:

.paddedleft { display: inline; padding-left: NNpx; }
...where “NNpx;” represents padding.

Hi there,i recently bought the Sofa Rooster WordPress theme. I also installed the WP e-Commerce plugin from GetShopped.org. it all works fine except when I try to view a product page. I get the following message:

Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /public/sites/www.vrouwenversiertips.com/cms/wp-content/themes/sofa_rooster/functions.php on line 577

If I switch to another theme to this notification does not occur. Could you help me with this problem?

Kind Regards

John

feeleep

It looks like you can’t use breadcrumbs with that plugin because line #577 relates to it.

Hi Feeleep,

Thanks for your quick response, do you have a suggestion how I can fix this problem? Maybe good to mention that I’m still a rookie in Wordpress ;-)

Kind Regards

John

feeleep

Well, I’m not sure because I didn’t test my theme with e-Commerce plugin. In general, breadcrumbs check against all known WordPress template types (like is_page, is_category, is_404, is_single, etc.) so you need to be sure how to make an exception for e-Commerce page type.

Hi Freeleep,

Is it possible to make the blog page full with?

Gr. Ralf

feeleep

It is possible but I have to modify CSS just a little bit. Lemme know if you want me to do it for you.

Hi I just purchased this item and need help with the following:

1. Is there a way to have the header image fill up the entire space instead of having that extra space around it? If so, I would like to have the navigation that appears above it to not be there.

2. Would like to have the youtube video show larger on the home page.

3. I’m also having trouble with getting a background image to repeat.

Thank you

feeleep

I did reply to your email already…
1) I’m not sure that would be doable “on the fly”, it seems like it does require time to change the layout. Currently I’m out of time, my schedule is booked by the end of August.
2) and 3) is what I can handle is you create a temp Admin account for me. That’s how I’ll be able to use theme editor and modify required files.

Hello, I do not see any way to edit the logo at the top of this theme, I also do not see a “set as featured image” option, and on my home page some of the posts show images that are not resizing and others dont. I have read the help file and there is nothing about these issues. – eideticfashion.com

feeleep

Logo file can be found and replaced with your own in “images” folder: “sofa_rooster/images/logo_top.png”. No “featured” images with this theme but only “featured” posts. Theme manuals will let you know how regular post may become “featured”; use Custom Fields panel to define new name-value pair that should read featured-yes.

Image sizes are defined in Media settings (Dashboard, Settings > Media) and theme manuals let you know recommended size for Thumbnail, Medium and Large size image. By image insertion to Post or Page select the size and alignment side. Be aware of the fact that image size for Post details page can be different than the one used by insertion (see theme Options).
On a side note, WordPress will never make bigger image by insertion. If original image is smaller than defined in media settings, its size will not be changed.

Default-user

I have set all of my media in the media settings section and the images are not resized. This also does not explain how i set an image as the featured image for a post, how do I set an image as the featured image for a post?

feeleep

Images can’t be resized if you just change Media settings. WordPress will not re-crop all of previously inserted images! You might want to try out the following plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

No featured image for a Post. The very first image you insert (the topmost one) will be used instead.

Hello, I really like the theme but I have alot of truble with the features. I can’t put the jQuery content slider, and the feature with the themes that appear at the bottom of the page. Could you help me fix it?

feeleep

Yes, I think I could help you with.
