Hi Gerda!

Loving the soundboard template, what a great job you have done :)

I have 2 questions:

1. Is it possible to display the name of my event in the tour dates widget (on the home page) so that people can click and go directly to that event on my site?

2. I would like the name of the event on the actual events page to be visible, but when using the code <?php the_title(); ?> it doesn’t display the names in a readable way… is there a way to make it read better?

Thanks

red_sun

Hey there! I’m glad to hear you enjoy working with Soundboard :)

1. In the file includes/widgets/widget-tourdates.php, line 109, right below <div class="tourright">

add

<a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>

2. That would be the right code though…. what do you mean by “not readable way”??

Cheers!

1. That’s fixed it! thank you!

2. Basically for events with more than one word, the text is looking like this when viewing from the Tour dates page:

Bestival Launches Desert Island Disco

FRI – Apr 04, 2014 22:00-05:00 Bestival London Launches Desert Island Disco

I would like the column for the event title to be wider so i can fit more words on the same line if possible?

Thanks!

Default-user

sorry that didn’t come out properly, it is putting each word of the event underneath the last word so it looks like i’ve pressed ‘return’ instead of the space bar! hope that makes sense!

red_sun

Oh ok… so you pretty much just want to adjust the width of of the table cells.

Well, add the title with the following code (right above the “city” code):

<td class="tour-item tour-title"> <?php the_title(); ?> </td>

Then use the following code to adjust the width of the title field (change width value to whatever you like):

.tour-title {
  width:160px;
}

You can also adjust the width of the other fields. The CSS selectors are: .tour-date, .tour-city, .tour-venue.

Hi, theme looks good!

Thinking to use this for a booking agency, is it possible to have artists attatched to tour dates?

Kind Regards

red_sun

Hey there! Thanks for your interest in Soundboard, but unfortunately this is not possible out of the box…

Cheers!

chrizzlee

Thanks for your reply, Will this be possible in the near future?

red_sun

I’m sorry but I don’t have any plans to add this feature anytime soon…

Hello – I am setting up a site using the theme (and I really do love it!) but im not having any luck making additional social media icons appear at the bottom, even with white transparent 32×32 logos. The link is there, but no logos… can you offer any advice?

Hey there.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! If you want you can send me your link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll check it out!

Hello! I see a lot of people are asking things about the Tour Dates widget, and I was just wondering if it’s possible to customise this to include, say, the time of the gig, on the widget? I’d be very interested to hear, when you have a chance. Thank you so much Lizzy

red_sun

Hey Lizzy!

You can add another custom field in the file includes/metaboxes/custom-meta-boxes, within the TOURDATES section.

Example:

array(
      'name' => __('Time','gxg_textdomain'),
      'desc' => '',
      'id' => $prefix . 'time',
      'type' => 'text',
      'std' => '',
),

And then call the field value in the file template-tourdates.php (= tour dates page) and includes/widgets/widget-tourdates.php (= tour dates widget)

Example:

set variable:

$time = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'gxg_time', true);

call variable:

 <?php echo $time; ?> 

Cheers!

Hi,

I created a child theme and everything seems to be working so far. The only thing that isn’t is the “Color Settings”. All of the color choices are broken images.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hey there!

Can you give me an example of what code you are using or send me a link to your site?

Ohhh sorry, now I understand! You meant the color images in the Theme Options Panel, yes?

I will have to fix this in the next update. You can do that right now if you want by making the following change to the file includes/admin/options.php, line 38:

change

Hi again, Thanks for all your help recently. Had a meeting with my client and they are LOVING their new site.

2 more questions:

1. Since this is a presenting vocal group (rather than a band) that performs different programming, we were wondering if we could just move the button in the tour dates widget above the city and venue. We can use the button text to show the name of the program, but it’d be great if the button (and therefore the program name) came first?

2. This may be a bigger customization, but we wanted to know if it was possible to either move the navigation menu to justify it to the logo at the top (like the logo would be a left-aligned photo) OR if we could include the logo in the navigation bar itself as the left-most menu item? We’re not using the whole width of the menu, so we envisioned this as a container that’s as tall as the logo, with the other menu items inside of it.

Let me know if either of these are possible. Thanks again for your help! Jess

red_sun

That’s great to hear that your client loves their new website :)

1. You can do this in the file includes/widgets/widget-tourdates.php.

Move

<div class="city"> <?php echo $city; ?> </div>
<div class="venue"> <?php echo $venue; ?> </div>

down, right above

<!-- .tourright -->

2. Hmm… I tink the logo within the navi would probably look awkward… I just looked at your website again and I think the centered logo looks really pretty. So 2 other suggestions for you, let me know if that is an option for you:

Spreading the menu items across the menu bar:

.sf-menu a {
  padding-left: 40px;
  padding-right: 40px;
}

Or shortening and centering the menu bar

#topnavi {
  width: 675px;
}

Or of course a combination of both would be possible as well… for example:

.sf-menu a {
  padding-left: 28px;
  padding-right: 28px;
}

#topnavi {
  width: 805px;
}

What do you think?

Default-user

Hi! I really like spreading the menu across the width of the page, that looks great. I think our overall aim is to bring more content above the ‘fold’ of the page, ultimately to minimize the padding space around the logo and between the menu. If we could get it basically so that the slider title is able to be seen without scrolling down, either by eliminating some space above the logo or both above and below the logo, I think it will be great. Thanks again!

red_sun

Well, the logo itself that you uploaded has about 20px transparent space around it, you can cut that off in Photoshop.

Or remove space above the logo:

#logo {
    margin-top: 0;
}

and above the navigation:

#topnavi {
    margin-top: 0;
}
Default-user

Great! Thanks. My client went to town on the logo, so I hadn’t been aware that he added so much space. We’re getting there. Thanks again. You have been a dream to work with!

Glad I could help :)

hello there, red sun! tell me plz how can i use “breadcrumbs” on my site? and i have a problem with google fonts – maybe it is for cyrrilic? tnx

red_sun

Hey there!

A breadcrumbs function is not included in the theme files. You would have to find a plugin for that.

Check the Google Fonts page of the font that you are using. It will tell you which caracters are supported. For example font Francois One: http://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Francois+One

Cheers!

opiumband

thank you! can you advise some working plug for a breadcrumbs? problem with google fonts is in its cyrrilic type. please, add in the theme some cyrrilic google fonts next time )))))

red_sun

I haven’t tested any breadcrumbs plugin with the theme yet, so unfortunately there is nothin I can recommend…

You can use any of the 600+ Google Fonts! Simply put the font name into Theme Options > Typography > Custom Google Web Font.

opiumband

there is few cyrrillic fonts… and this fonts don’t work, i tested. i think you must know it.

Hello Red Sun,

Thanks for all the help you’ve provided so far. I’m trying to change the font color on my main navigation menu to be #6d603d in all stages. I’ve found some of the CSS you provided but I never managed it to change it in all stages. I played with the CSS file but I still can’t get it to work. Is there a way to have the font at #6d603d when the page opens, on hover, etc.?

Thanks for your help. Her’s the site so you know what I mean www.doahfest.com

red_sun

Hi!

Add the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.sf-menu a, .sf-menu a:visited, .sf-menu li a, .sf-menu li a:active {
    color: #6D603D !important;
}

Hello Gerda. I’m coming up to some dead ends as of late. I did some searches in this documentation and nothing came up. I’m adding content to the tour-dates “posts” and wanted to add a slider. After finding out that I could only use one instance of NovoSlider at a time, I went on the hunt and at this point I’m using MetaSlider. I don’t want to speak too soon, but so far, so good…it works on posts only however so now, the problems: 1) I have noticed that while using the “text” editor (not the wswyg tab) that it’s acting differently than the posts editor. It will constantly wrap

tags around everything! But this is not happening in the posts editor and I verified that. I even installed a widget called Raw HTML so that I could get around this problem. But still to no avail as Raw HTML only sees the POSTS form and not the custom Tour Dates form. So the RAW HTML widget doesn’t show / install in the Tour Dates form. 2) in the process I discovered that shortcodes also do not work in the Tour Dates editor, but they do in the posts editor. Easy insertion of the MetaSlider requires this. thanks in advance Richard

red_sun

Hey Richard!

Ok you can solve this by making the following changes to the theme files:

file template-tourdates.php, line 42, change

'supports' => array('title', 'revisions'),

to

'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'revisions'),

now you will find another editor on the tourdates item admin page. Paste your text/code/shortcodes into there.

Display the content by adding

<?php the_content(); ?> 

to the file single-tourdates.php, line 100.

Cheers!

Default-user

Hi again Gerda. well, it took quite a while to sniff out the code you were referring to. It was in the \includes\posttypes\tourdates.php folder., not the template-tourdates.php file. :-} Anyways, so far so good – it seems to work – shortcode and slideshow working – as well as not the “new” editor not inserting paragraph html everywhere. MUch appreciated… The only thing I would like, if possible, is if the new editor could display in the “Edit Date” page below the existing editing fields rather than above – as these are the fields that need to get filled in im Voraus.

Thanks very much Richard

red_sun

Oh.. so sorry! I wrote that too fast!

In order to move the new editor down, add the following code at the very end of the file includes/metaboxes/config-meta-boxes.php:

// Move TinyMCE Editor to the bottom
    add_action( 'add_meta_boxes', 'action_add_meta_boxes', 0 );
    function action_add_meta_boxes() {
        global $_wp_post_type_features;
            if (isset($_wp_post_type_features['tourdates']['editor']) && $_wp_post_type_features['tourdates']['editor']) {
                unset($_wp_post_type_features['tourdates']['editor']);
                add_meta_box(
                    'description_section',
                    __('Description'),
                    'inner_custom_box',
                        'tourdates', 'normal', 'low'
                );
            }
    add_action( 'admin_head', 'action_admin_head'); //white background
    }
    function action_admin_head() {
    ?>
    <style type="text/css">
        .wp-editor-container{background-color:#fff;}
    </style>
    <?php
    }
    function inner_custom_box( $post ) {
    echo '<div class="wp-editor-wrap">';
    //the_editor is deprecated in WP3.3, use instead:
    wp_editor($post->post_content, 'content', array('dfw' => true, 'tabindex' => 1) );
    //the_editor($post->post_content);
    echo '</div>';
    }

You can also remove the other editor in the same file (line 247 – 253).

Hello again. I added the code you have above – vielen Dank. Firstly, the new Editor works great and even PrettyPhoto kicks in without having to do anything special and which is just what the doctor ordered. However, now the “new” tinyMCE editor is positioning itself below the revisionsdiv.in the edit tour dates page. Would it be possible to get the tinyMCE just above that? FYI I don’t consider this a major fix – however I consider having the “new” TinyMCE an important one. Ich bedanke mich wieder im Voraus. :-) R

red_sun

Hmm.. you know what, I just realized you can actually just drag and drop the revisions box to the bottom.

Default-user

omg. Too funny.

I’ll keep the code above in there for the time being but might not revise during the next update.

Hi again, Thanks for all your help thusfar – we are launching Sunday – very exciting. A few questions to wrap up:

1. We fixed the drop down text color, but it still seems that the text stays white once you are on an inside page. For example if you hover on “About Us” and click to one of the drop down pages, and then hover again, the text is white. Can we change this?

2. This organization’s social media/blogger guy imported all the old content today, which is great. Unfortunately we’ve got double images, see here: http://www.sandboxsite.cappellaromana.org/blog/

He says, we should “adjust the code in the single.php and loop.php template files to take out the post thumbnails. That would get rid of the double images. The rest for how the images are styled could be manipulated in the style.css file to make what were blogger classes work within this theme.” I’m wondering if you have thoughts on this, or could provide the code to make this content jive with the theme?

Otherwise I think we’re good. Thanks again! Jess

Default-user

Hi, this is another suggestion from our blogger: The reason some of the images look odd (square images are now rectangles at 500X300) is that this particular theme created it’s own image types and sizes in the functions.php. I would adjust those settings either there or in the Media Settings (or both) by looking at the code to see which types take images like (http://www.sandboxsite.cappellaromana.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Mt-Sinai-Frontier-of-Byzantium1.jpg) and create a second version at 500×300, and so on and so forth for whichever images seem odd to you. Adjust those sizes, maybe make it 300×300 instead, whatever you decide, but keep the same size names (very important) that are setup in the functions.php file. Then, you can install and run the plugin “Regenerate Thumbnails” (http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/) and all of the images will be regenerated at the new sizes you set and should auto-magically update in the blog as you’ve set them. Once you’re done you can de-activate and delete the RT plugin.

I’m generally a fan of not adjusting the php files – what would you suggest?

Default-user

Just wanted to let you know we figured everything out with the images – but if you have solutions for point #1 up there that would be great! Sorry for all the comments..

red_sun

I think this should work:

.sf-menu li.current_page_ancestor .sub-menu a {
    color: #222222 !important;
}

.sf-menu li.current_page_ancestor .sub-menu a:hover {
    color: #FFFFFF !important;
}

Thanks again! Here’s the site as it is live to the world: cappellaromana.org thanks again – you’ve been great and we love your theme.

Thanks! That worked great. Also, is it possible to increase the sidebar widgets title text on pages other than the homepage? I increased the size of my nav text and headers text, but the sidebar title texts are still very small once you click through to other pages. I don’t know if I’m explaining this so it makes sense. Any suggestions or fixes for this?

Hi red_sun,

I’m using Soundboard and I didn’t have any problem so far. Today, I updated Wordpress to version 3.9 and my homepage doesn’t work anymore. The other pages (tour dates, audio, ...) work fine.

What can I do?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi there,

I have been looking right through at least half of the forum pages to check to see if I could find some answers. Here is what I want to do and by the way thanks heaps for such a great site…..

1. I don’t want any of the background images (that you have in the image section for the front page – the png) at all so that the writing is straight on the background image (in my case texture image) behind as if hovering on it….I need this for the whole of the front page – slider, content and navigator boxes (to be completely transparant)

2. I want to be able to alter each of the main title fonts on my Homepage as in www.emilysmith.com and also to even up the three columns so they are all the same width in the content part on the main page.

3. I also want to include as on the above site the small images for facebook etc on the top right above the main logo part too rather than on the bottom of the page in a box…again floating.

Is it possible to get help with all this? I am a musician making her way through the wordpress file trying to get essentially the effect as emily has on her page – great design for my sort of music.

thank you!
