I’m having a few minor problems after installing the theme.

1. I can’t get the slider to work. I’ve created images and placed them as a slider, but the slider won’t show up on the homepage. The Slider name has been selected and the show on homepage button has been checked within the settings.

2. The custom color for the theme is not showing up even though it is saved in the settings. It’s going with one of the included colors.

3. The included Twitter widget is not displaying the tweets. Is there a specific way I need to include the username on the widget page?

4. The only widget sidebars that work are the “main sidebar,” “tour sidebar,” “contact sidebar.” The home left and home right sidebars are not working for me. How do I fix this?

Thanks so much!

Hey MelissaBrooke.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

1. Please make sure you are following the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the Homepage”, especially step 6. http://www.files.red-sun-design.com/soundboard/readme/readme.html#mytabs=3

2. Can you send me link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page so that I can take a look?

3. Twitter made some major changes to it’s API. The new API (1.1) only works with authentication of each user. This is why the Soundboard twitter widget stopped working and I am going to remove it in the next update. Please use this plugin instead:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/really-simple-twitter-feed-widget/

In order for the feed to display nicely, you can put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.really_simple_twitter_widget li {
    margin-bottom: 20px;
}
.twitter-timestamp {
    font-size: 10px;
}

4. Please make sure you are following the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the Homepage”, especially step 6.

Cheers!

Hello,

I’ve just updated to the latest version of wordpress, and now my slider doesn’t work.

I’me getting this error all over the place

blockUI requires jQuery v1.2.3 or later! You are using v1.10.2

Thank you. That’s all worked fine. But now I have a massive gap between my content and footer on my home page?

Default-user

Every page infact

red_sun

Massive gap? I can see only the 40px margin that you can see on my demo page as well. Did you want to remove the margin between the content and footer completely?

Hi Red Sun! I’m having a technical issue and I hope you can steer me in the right direction. In the last few days the sidebar on the main blog page (that lists all recent posts) moved down to the bottom of the page instead of where it’s supposed to be:

http://rallycross360.com/headlines/

Can you give me an idea of what’s breaking here? I can’t find anything weird in the posts that might cause this.

Thanks, Kristin

red_sun

What you can do is to try and deactivate all plugins and/or remove all widgets from that sidebar and place a WordPress widget, like the text widget only, just to test if that solves the problem.

Thank you :) Still lovin’ the theme :)

Hi there! Love the Template. A few queries tho:

1. The thumbnail size in the gallery is quite small. Is there any way to make the thumbnails bigger? Going to ‘media settings’ and changing it doesnt help. How is using the ‘gallery template’ different than using a ‘default template’ and adding media as a ‘gallery’?

2. I have uploaded 3 albums in the ‘AUDIO’ from the menu on the left side. then, i have made a page called ‘songs’ and set it to the ‘audio template’. How do i get those albums to show on this page?

3. I’m trying to use the ‘pages’ widget in the sidebar footer. It asks me to enter the page IDs of the pages i do not want listed in there. Where can i find the page ID?

Regards, V.

red_sun

I think it should work if you zip the pdf file and display a link.

You can change the slider speed in the file js/scripts.js, line 67 and 68.

Default-user

Thanks! the zip idea worked wonders!! Where exactly do i locate the file js/scripts.js ?

red_sun

The soundboard theme folder includes a subfolder called “js”, which contains the file scripts.js.

Hi,

Does the default images (background, header etc.) not come with this template download? I installed the template but all images are missing and I don’t see them in the download files?

Thanks

red_sun

Hi Bravenmusic.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

None of the images, videos or audio files in the Demo are included in the download version of the template. You can find this info at the item details page (very bottom) http://themeforest.net/item/soundboard-a-premium-music-wordpress-theme-/2558532

Hi. My website at www.eargrub.com appears that the slider isn’t working after updating to Wordpress 3.6. How do I update the soundboard theme without losing any of my widgets/content/current soundboard settings? Thanks!

red_sun

Hi Ejnoir3!

Deactivate and delete the old Soundboard theme from your WordPress installation and upload the new one.

If you upgrade Soundboard, none of your content or settings in the Theme Options Panel would get lost. Only changes that you’ve made to the theme files would be lost.

(Just checked your site in Chrome/Firefox and the slider worked fine for me though…)

Cheers!

I’m new to wordpress and theming a wordpress site, so sorry if my question is too obvious. Does this pack contain plugins to achieve all funcionalities as I can see on the demo site (gallery, tour dates, slider)? Or all of these are built in funcionalities? Thanks

red_sun

Hey hedda7!

Gallery, tour dates and slider are built-in functionalities.

Cheers!

2 Questions:

1. How do I center the Main Menu? I want all the Pages to be center on that top menu…

2. I’ve tried everything to get a background image for my website, but it doesn’t seem to work. I save the image I want in the Theme Options, but it just stays white… Do you have specific instructions to get a background image, or can I email you my login?

Thank you, SullTV

red_sun

Hey SullTV.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

1. Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS :
 .sf-menu { width: 700px; } 
Change 700px to the total with of your menu items.

2. Yes, please send me the login info via the user contact form on my profile page.

Cheers!

I chose a custom background with this theme, which worked great in Safari, BUT doesn’t get picked up when using Chrome. In Chrome is just stays with a white background.

Do you have a way to fix this?

Thank you, SullTV

Hey Red_Sun,

Still lovin’ the theme :) I’m using the Gallery and I’ve encountered a small problem. If I use an apostrophe (‘), as in “Tom’s house,” in the caption of a photo, all the text following the apostrophe disappears when the photo is viewed by a user in the Gallery. What can I change in the php files to keep apostrophes from breaking the captions? Here’s an example:

http://rallycross360.com/gallery/x-games-2013-photos-kristin-berkery/#prettyPhoto[pp_gallery]/1/ (the caption should say “Rhys Millen’s signature” not just “Rhys Millen”)

Thanks, Kristin

red_sun

Hey Kristin!

In the file single-gallery.php, line 26, right after { add

$caption = $image['caption'];
$caption = htmlspecialchars($caption, ENT_QUOTES);    

and in line 27, change

alt='{$image['caption']}' 

to

 alt='{$caption}'

Great theme. I am having one problem- I set up my email address under settings/contact but when I try to send a test message using the contact form the page says the email is successfully sent, but I do not receive anything in my inbox from the website. I also checked my spam folder- nothing there. Any fix for this?

red_sun

If your contact page seems to work on the front-end but doesn’t deliver mail, be sure that your server supports the sendmail protocol (ask your server admin if this is set up). If you can’t activate it, I would recommend to get a plugin for your contact page (I can recommend the “contact form 7” plugin for example)

I am unable to get the Twitter feed to work. I’ve tried using the username and the full URL and the tweets are not blocked or restricted. A friend of mine had the same problem. any solutions?

red_sun

Twitter made some major changes to it’s API. The new API (1.1) only works with authentication of each user. This is why the Soundboard twitter widget stopped working and I am going to remove it in the next update. Please use this plugin instead:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/really-simple-twitter-feed-widget/

Hi,

i bought the theme a few days back.. i realy like it i realy do..

BUT..

This JW player is driving me up the wall pulling my hair in agony.

No matter what player i choose.. 5 or 6.. they just wont work and only show text ‘jw Player’.

Ive searched google and there i find.. it wont work with the theme,,, you need to manually add it..

soooo i did..

It shows a player but it refuses to play my audio.. when i select 5.. it gives me a skinn error..

reading the comments here on the payer consirns me.. the theme is expensive enough to expect it to work instantly..

But howcome this is driving me insane ??

Hope someone comes with a desent tutorial on how to fix this..

thanks..

red_sun

Oh, and the download files actually include an extensive step by step documentation, including instructions on how to integrate JW player into the theme: http://www.files.red-sun-design.com/soundboard/readme/readme.html#mytabs=1

Hi Red_Sun!

I updated my prettyPhoto.js to the latest version so I can display Twitter, FB, and Pinterest share buttons within each photo’s caption area in the lightbox, but I can’t figure out where to turn on that functionality within the Soundboard theme. Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks! Kristin

red_sun

In the file js/scripts.js, replace line 57

social_tools: false

with the code you can find here: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/documentation

.. at the very bottom of the “Customization” section.

(starts with: social_tools: div class=pp_social

Thank you :) The caption and play/back/forward buttons disappeared below the photo in the lightbox and the social buttons didn’t appear when I swapped that new code. (example: http://rallycross360.com/gallery/x-games-2013-photos-greg-dorman/#prettyPhoto – click on a pic to view it in lightbox) Everything looks good in the code so I don’t know what’s going on.

Do you have any immediate suggestions to make the caption and buttons reappear? Otherwise I’ll see if I can get help from other PrettyPhoto users.

Thanks again :)

Kristin

red_sun

I am sorry, actually the right line to replace the code is not 57 (this is for the login lightbox), but it is 42.

As for the captions and buttons: please use the prettyPhoto.js file from the Soundboard theme, as I made some changes to the file to make it work with the theme and to display the captions. Soundboard is using prettyPhoto version 3.1.4. Newest version is 3.1.5, but they haven’t made any changes in the latest version besides support for jQuery 1.9.

Hi Red_Sun, thanks for a great theme. My site is at FelipeTarantino.com and my question is:

How do I make the thumbnails in the gallery click to an enlarged pop-up version of the same photo?

Thanks, Greg@haindesign.com
red_sun

Hey Greg! Please make sure you are following the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the Gallery Page”: http://www.files.red-sun-design.com/soundboard/readme/readme.html#mytabs=3

If you want to display only a few images and not galleries, don’t add the Gallery page to your menu, but the gallery post.

Let me know if you need more info.

Hello! My name is Joan and my site is www.saphiewellsroject.com. I have a question about the social icons. I was wondering, are you thinking about putting a Google+ icon with the rest of icons? If not, how can i put it?

Thanks!!

red_sun

Hey subirats345, thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

If you are using at least version 1.04 of Soundboard, you can add additional icons in Theme Options > Social.

Simply upload a white, transparent, 32px heigh Google plus image (maybe from here: http://www.iconsdb.com/white-icons/google-plus-icon.html ) to one of the “additional icons” spots and add the width of the icon and URL to the google plus profile.

Hey fluido21.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard, I’m glad you like it :)

Since WordPress versin 2.9 you can embed YouTube videos without a plugin. Simply past the URL of the video into the editor, on its own line.
