Hey Gerda,

how can I update the theme?

Markus

red_sun

Hey Markus!

This is how you update:

Simply log into ThemeForest with the account that you’ve used to purchase the theme, go to the “Downloads” tab. Here you will find all the files you’ve purchased. If you re-download the theme, you will automatically get the newest version.

Then deactivate (by activating any other theme) and delete the old theme version from your WordPress installation and upload the new one.

If you update the theme, none of your content or settings in the Theme Options Panel would get lost. Only changes that you’ve made directly to the theme files would be lost. That’s why I always recommend making all CSS changes not in the theme files, but in the Theme Options Panel > General > Custom CSS.

If you are uncomfortable deleting the old theme, there is a plugin that I’ve tried, where you can install the updated theme without having to delete the old theme. In case something goes wrong, you can simply change back to the old theme: http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-theme-and-plugin-upgrades/

Cheers!

Hello, I’ve purchased this theme and am having issues with the soundcloud shortcode working correctly. The shortcode is just displayed as text on the page. I’ve tried installing another soundcloud plugin, but I get a plugin conflict message when I attempt to activate it. Please help!

red_sun

Hey laura! If you are having trouble with the Soundcloud shortcode, you can always just use the regular Soundcloud embed code: Go to the Soundcloud page of the song/playlist you want to embed and click the “Share” button. Then click on “Embed”, choose your layout and optionally click on “more options” to set up the player. Then copy the iframe code and insert it into and post, page or text widget.

Cheers!

Hi Gerda, First, very nice work with the responsive mode! I was waiting for it! Thank you! Now…I’ve notice the fact that the header image and the sliders doesn’t get the “alt” atribute from the images, although they have one in the media library proprieties. You know is very important for on page SEO. I’ve manage to put manually in header.php the “alt” for header image. Question: Is any other way for the header and slider images to self-acting get the atribute? Thank you!

red_sun

Hey there! Glad to hear you like the update :)

Well this is weird, because I didn’t change anything about the alt attribute of the slider images. But you can add the alt attribute to the slider images by making the following changes in the theme files:

File slider.php, line 21-23, replace

echo "<a href="'$cf'"><img src="'{$image['url']}'" alt="" title="'{$caption}'" /></a>";
} else {    
echo "<img src="'{$image['url']}'" alt="" title="'{$caption}'" />";

with

echo "<a href="'$cf'"><img src="'{$image['url']}'" alt="'{$image['alt']}'" title="'$caption'" /></a>";
} else {    
echo "<img src="'{$image['url']}'" alt="'{$image['alt']}'" title="'$caption'" />";

Cheers!

Wait.. the code totally gets messed up when I post it here. Send me a message via the support form on the support tab and I’ll send you the correct code via email. I will add this code to the next theme update as well…

I am having trouble with my homepage. There is no space between the content and the footer:

red_sun

Hey there! I can’t see that problem on your site. What browser are you using?

SteveBusch

Hmm, just checked and it seems to have resolved itself. Sorry to bother you.

red_sun

No problem!

Hi Gerda, Can I make the slider full width? Kepping the responsive layout? Thank you

red_sun

Hi! Soundboard has a boxed layout and there is no option to make the slider full width.

Thinking about purchasing, but can i remove the buy tickets button, the concerts are free—and can it link to a more detailed version of the concert, perhaps with a map?

red_sun

Hey there… thanks for your interest in Soundboard!

Yeah, you have the option to change the button text to whatever you like (for example “free”) and link it to any URL, or not show the button at all.

If you add additional info about the concert, a “more info” link will display below the date ( as you can see here, below the Asbury Park date: http://www.themes.red-sun-design.com/soundboard/tour/ )

If you want to add a map to each date, you could install the plugin “Basic Google Maps Placemarks” and add a map to each date via a shortcode. Information on how to do that you can find here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/basic-google-maps-placemarks/installation/

Cheers!

Great theme! I am having trouble with sidebars, and footer its not formatting right, it likes cutting off the text. I’ve attached a pix below so you can see what I’m talking about

Hey,

After updating new wordpress, the whole page messed up. The nav is not centered anymore and the left/center/right section of the site is not working.

How do I fix this?

I have also updated to new version of the template. I need to get this don’t asap.

Also on top of where the blog is I want to embed a youtube or vimeo video to fit snug in the middle above the news. How would I achieve that.

Thank you so much for the help in advance.

red_sun

Hey! I didn’t get your email. Can you resend it please?

red_sun

Also I just looked at the source code. Can you please temporarily remove any third party widgets from the left sidebar to see if that fixes the problem?

Hey! That actually solved my problem! Thanks so much! Your help is awesome!

Hey Gerda,

I just have to make a point of thanking you for the support you’ve provided in setting up the Soundboard theme on my site!

I’ve been using various CMS themes, templates and plugins for several years now and I have to say that I’ve never contacted such a helpful author or experienced such consistent and helpful support provided in such a timely fashion.

Your commitment to developing this theme and your even greater commitment to supporting your customers is unprecedented. Even as a relative beginner with WorPress, the theme itself is easy and to install, and straightforward to configure, and you made the process even easier by leaping to my help whenever I had any struggles.

Even though you’ve provided support directly by email, I thought I just had to publicly make my thannks known for all your help.

More power to your elbow! [or should that be keyboard?):)

red_sun

Thank you for taking the time to leave such an amazing comment! I’m glad you are happy with your purchase and appreciate my work and my support :)

I was trying to make a local server on my MAC using MAMP, but I gave up halfway. (So basically, I didn’t finish MAMP setting) Somehow, all single pages of my Audio page are missing.. I can’t even make a new page. I want to know how to get those page back using my backup data..

I’ve sent you an email today regarding of this issue. Hope you have some clue to fix it..

Regards,

red_sun

Hey there! Are you getting a 404 error message on single audio pages? If yes, go to Settings > Permalinks and click “Save Changes”.

Hello, 1)I need to remove the “+date+” that appears when you make a news post.

2) I need to center the news title on the home page

3) I would like to remove the left and right arrows from the slider. Is that possible?

Thanks, Justin

red_sun

Hi, red_sun! I’ve successfully added my JW player, however, I want to know how to change the width and height of the player. My JW player appears in pop-up window just like your sample page. I want to show all song titles within one window at a glance. Many thanks to your help.

red_sun

Hey Miho! You can change the player size in the file single-audio.php (You will have to change the size multiple times in the file). Look for the “listbar” (=player) size in line 187, 244, 300 and 354 and the lightbox size in line 191, 248, 301 and 356.

Cheers! Gerda

Hi great theme. Could you tell me how you got your “news” page http://www.themes.red-sun-design.com/?theme=soundboard to be designed in that way. Which page template did you use?

Thanks so much

red_sun

Hey there, I’m glad to hear you like the theme!

It’s the “Home” template. More detailed instructions you can find in the documentation under “Setting up the Homepage”. Here is a link: http://www.files.red-sun-design.com/soundboard/readme/readme.html#mytabs=5

Hi, I want to have album download links from the standard template buy/download links on the album pages, and I want this to download a ZIP file (for free). What I can’t figure out is how I am able to track this through Google Analytics as I don’t just want to know who is looking at the album page, but I want to know how many downloads I have had. Any ideas? Dave

Hey Dave! I haven’t tried it myself, but maybe this plugin helps?: https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/

Hi Red Sun, Could you please suggest me how to
1. put youtube MV on the top of latest posts

2. change latest post alignment from vertical to horizontal with 180×180 featured image and short caption on homepage , please see the attached photo for more details

3. make a social menu bar float (always on top when scroll down) Photo : http://goo.gl/BnhchJ

Thank you so much in advance Zai

red_sun

Hey Zai… That’s a very cool looking customization of my theme!

1. Looks like you’ve already solved this?

2. Not sure what area you mean here. Can you send me a screenshot?

3. I can recommend “jQuery Waypoints Sticky Elements” to make the top bar sticky: http://imakewebthings.com/jquery-waypoints/shortcuts/sticky-elements/

Thank you so much for your kind words, your beautiful theme make my web look nice. I learn a lot from your supporting answers.

Yes, I solved some problems but still struggle with the widget issue.. Could you please take a look in this screenshot http://goo.gl/38ozER

Hi!

1. Tour Dates alignment on homepage:

.gg_tourdates_widget ul {
    margin-left: 0;
}

2. Shop page widgets headlines:

The font is Nunito, just like on the homepage, but smaller an thinner. You can increase font size and make the font bold with the following code:

#sidebar h3.widgettitle {
    font-size: 20px;
    font-weight: bold;
}

3. Space below widgets:

.widget {
    margin-bottom: 40px;
}

Hi, ich fand diesen Code für die “alt”-Bezeichnungen im Header/ Logo und Slider weiter oben von dir:

echo "<a href="'$cf'"><img src="'{$image['url']}'" alt="'{$image['alt']}'" title="'$caption'" /></a>"; } else { echo "<img src="'{$image['url']}'" alt="'{$image['alt']}'" title="'$caption'" />";

Der sollte ja aber nicht genommen werden. Hast du inzwischen einen neuen? Wäre sehr hilfreich.

Und eine 2. Frage noch: lässt sich der Footer von der Höhe her verkürzen, selbst wenn ein Text-Widget eingefügt ist?

Besten Dank und LG

red_sun

Hi!

Du kannst die footer widget area mit dem folgenden code auf eine bestimmte Höhe kürzen, zB für eine Höhe von 200px, füge folgenden code in Theme Options > General > Custom CSS ein:

#footer-widget-area {
    height: 200px;
    overflow: hidden;
}

Ich weiss nicht genau was Du damit meinst, dass die Alt Bezeichnungen nicht genommen werden sollen?

Super! Danke hierfür schon mal :)

Zu deiner Frage: doch, doch. Die Alt-Bezeichnungen sollen gerade übernommen werden. Sind aber im Quellcode nicht sichtbar, obwohl die Attribute feststehen. Den Code habe ich weiter oben entdeckt. Du meintest aber, man solle diesen NICHT dafür verwenden.

Daher die Frage: was kann ich tun, damit die alt-Attribute im Logo + Slider (für Suchmaschinen) sichtlich sind?

Danke nochmals und LG

I want to buy this them, but i have 2 questions. Will i have problem with events calendar pro, is it supported? And is there a way to have subfolders in the gallery, for example:

Nightclub -> NameOfTheNightClub -> DATE -> Actual images

regards, Aleksandar

red_sun

Hey Aleksandar.. thanks for your interest in Soundboard!

I haven’t tested the theme with Events Calendar Pro yet but I don’t see why it shouldn’t work with the theme.

It is not possible to have subfolders in the gallery. The only way to do this would be to create the sub categories in the navigation menu (Dropdown menu).

Cheers!
