Is it possible to make “blog small” ??? You have blog large, and blog medium. But not blog small.

withemes

Unfortunately, my theme doesn’t support such a layout. I’ll consider to add it if have more damands.

Thank you for the fast and straight to the point answers.

withemes

You’re welcome :)

I’m fluctuating between Norris and Sonata, and I really would like to pick Sonata. However, I really like the full screen that Norris starts with. Is there a way to have the full screen splash page on Sonata? Both are quite nice, regardless.

withemes

Hello. Thanks for your interest. Actually, I do not have an option for fullscreen slider in Sonata theme. Hope you’ll choose a best theme for your need.

Best. :)

I am having a little trouble signing up to the support forum. I am waiting for the password to be emailed but it has not arrived.

I have tried “forgotten password” but it is now saying that my username is not recognised.

On single post, I find the post meta under the title a waste of space. How can I shift it to the bottom of the content? Thank you!

withemes

Hello. Thanks for purchasing my item.

You can open sonata/single.php file and look for <?php wi_meta(); ?> and move it to anywhere you want. :)

Hope this helps

Withemes

Nice work!! Good luck! :)

withemes

Thanks! :)

withemes

Thanks mate! :D

considering your theme for an art gallery site. Curious, is there any way to display shopping categories or featured products on home page?

withemes

Definitely. You can use shortcodes from WooCommerce for showing them. If not sure, please download WooCommerce and test with Twenty Twelve theme first. :)

Default-user

ok, but style wise, your theme does not come with display shortcodes for products, right?

withemes

No. My theme does. These shortcodes are from WooCommerce plugin and can be used in ANY theme. Indeed, this page is built from the shortcode to display products.

Hi !

Can I get the footer to look like your other theme NORRIS, with the centered icons and logo?

withemes

Yes, but logo is above and social icons below. :) If you want to make the icons above, you’ll need to edit footer.php file somehow. But it’s simple, I think. :)

I post a lot of pictures in one post. Can the thumbnail appear on only the homepage and vanish once the separate posts are visited?

Thank you.

Default-user

I notice that there’s a smiley face on a white space beneath the footer when my site is on mobile. Is that an error?

withemes

It’s generated by Jetpack plugin, not an issue.

Is this your problem?

Default-user

Ahhhh thanks a lot :) Totally new to wordpress, so I can’t tell whether it’s the theme or something else. Appreciate the help.

Hi There is some issues with the $19 slider bar does it come with the theme? When I’d uploaded the theme the widget for the slider is showing not active. Please help, any suggestions? I’m very new to this.

Default-user

I keep getting this message when ever I try to activate.

I did upload through my FTP account. to make sure its ready to upload on wordpress. Warning: require_once(/home6/leeaison/public_html/wp-content/plugins/revslider/inc_php/framework/include_framework.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home6/leeaison/public_html/wp-content/plugins/revslider/revslider.php on line 16

withemes

It’s a bit weird because many customers and I could activate this plugin.

1 – Let try to install it manually. That’s plugin is located in sonata/inc/plugins/revslider.zip, just install that plugin in normal way.

2 – If this doesn’t help, please let me access your admin dashboard by dropping me an email via my profile contact form, I’ll help you further.

i’d figured it out thank you so very much… I just love this theme!!!! I really like the Norris opening page and they’re slider. I was trying to be a bit creative and use the flexslider and the wording like the fullwidth short code. I’m failing time after time… is it possible to get the opener on Norris here on my Sonata theme. It looked as simple as a full width slider with a header align center. But Im wrong. Please help if you can!

When i upload theme, i see this error…What is that?

Warning: getimagesize() [function.getimagesize]: http:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_fopen=0 in /home/helpaspirituel.com/httpdocs/wp-content/themes/sonata/functions.php on line 1646

also , i wanna change title of portfolio details…

Default-user

I wanna change these titles ecause my web site won’t be english.Or i wanna remove them…(DETAILS, DESCRIPTION,PREVIOUS PROJECT,CLIENT,DATE,LOCATION,CATEGORIES )

withemes

Hello.

1 – To import the demo file (for any theme), you have to run the script in some interval of time. So let contact your hosting provider support to enable set_time_limit function and tell them to set it at least 900s. 1800s is even better.

2 – You can change the portfolio details label in Appearance > Theme Options > Portfolio.

Hope this helps

Hello. Thanks for purchasing my item.

My theme uses getimagesize function to calculate logo size for Retina displaying. Some hosting provider doesn’t allow this function. Please contact your hosting provider to enable getimagesize from PHP.ini file, then everything gonna be OK.

Hope this helps

Hello.

I’m interested in purchasing your theme. Is there a function to put the team members on the home page?

withemes

Hello. Thanks for your interest.

You can put the team members in any page, and you can put almost everything on the home page. All is built from shortcodes.

Best Regards

Withemes

Dear Witthemes,

I’m considering buying this theme, but was curious about the backend inside the Wordpress CMS. To build the pages, do you use modules and drag & drop for placement of content on the page? Are there some screenshots or a video you can provide that show what it looks like or how its used?

Thanks in advance! Matt

withemes

Hello. Thanks for your interest.

We use shortcodes to build pages. Please drop me an email via my profile contact form, I’ll send you user & pass to view the backend of demo site.

Hi, I really like this theme!!! Want use for music quartet so your name Sonata is link with it :-)

I have question if is there Page builder?

Thank you so much for answer. Sarka

withemes

Hello. Thanks for your interest.

My theme comes with shortcodes and shortcode generators from TinyMCE, not a page builder. However, I think it’s also easy to understand and use.

Hope this helps

withemes

Hi. Thanks for purchasing my item. I’m glad to hear that you’re happy with it.

Hi I’m thinking of buying this theme to upgrade my existing site (http://www.theheartbandits.com). In my current site I have a logo that is roundish and the bottom part of the logo creates a cutout of my homepage slider. I had a designer make this years ago and I just want to see if making the logo do this with Sonata is possible. Do you know if it is? Is it some customization I need to do with the code or do I have to just push the slider down?

withemes

Hello. Thanks for your interest.

I think the trouble with the logo can be solved easily with some custom CSS rule for your logo image, you don’t need to push the slider down.

Hi, i’m adding custom css within the theme settings to change the header/logo height but it isn’t taking affect. http://lotuspromo.server296.com/

I wanted the logo/header to be 144px tall and added (to custom css):

wi-header {

width: 100%; height: 144px; position: relative; background: #fff; z-index: 9999; transition: height .3s ease-out; } #wi-logo img { max-height: 144px; display: block; }

Any ideas?

Default-user

thanks very much :)

Default-user

How can I have a separate logo for the header as you scroll down please? The automatic re-sizing doesn’t work well for the particular logo i’m using so would like to replace just that logo with a custom version.

withemes

Hmm, It seems not easy and need to edit something but I’ll take a try to help you this case. Let choose your logo image of the sticky header and send me that image URL. :)

I’m having an issue with Firefox upscaling the Imageboxes into squares. This is happening on mac and pc. The images are being scaled and cropped which isn’t ideal. The imageboxes on the demo site seem to look fine on firefox but no matter how I test mine they are getting scaled. Any ideas?

withemes

Hello. Thanks for your feedback.

It was a small issue and I’ll fix it in an update today.

Best

Withemes

Love the theme!

How do i allow for the logo to be the actual size i’ve made it? It shrinks it a bit each time.

thanks!

withemes

Hi. I appologize for delay on your reply. :)

- If you’re talking about logo width, please go to Theme Options > Header and change the Header Proportion to 4:8 or 5:7

- If you’re talking about logo height, please update to v1.0.2 add this line to Theme Options > Custom CSS:

#wi-header {width: 100%; height: 144px; position: relative; background: #fff;} #wi-logo img { max-height: 144px; display: block; }

Replace 144px by the number you want.

Best Regards

withemes

Hello. Have your filled the Twitter API parameters yet?

Here’s the plugin page. It has some helpful info for you. If you still can not make it work, let drop me an email via my profile contact form with your admin dashboard acc, I’ll help you further.

Hi, I’m considering purchasing this theme but I’m wondering if the blog posts can be set to view in masonry/grid format as well- or if that is only for a separate portfolio option like I see in some themes. Thanks!

withemes

Hi. Thanks for your interest.

Unfortunately, masonry/grid format is only available for portfolio items, not for blog. :(

Best Regards
