Hi, good morning, i sent an email about some issues i have with my template, thank you very much.

Great job with this template, is so beautiful and easy. Thanks

That’s great to hear that you enjoy working with Soundboard! ... I already replied to your email. Cheers!

Hi! Is there a way I can have my site in my native language and also have a version in english? I mean, I don’t want just to translate it, I want to have it in the two languages. Thanks!

Hey… You would have to use a plugin for that. For example the “WPML plugin”.

Guten Abend Red-Sun,

I was able to translate manually pretty much everything in French… in All the php_e sections ….Except:

Calendar widget (month, week-days, month )

News page « dates, comments, share » on the left side

Tour date Widget – Translating the date (especially the month I am clueless?)

I was able to translate all the dates in the Tour dates page and I also changed the order

Album page: release date

Also Comments in the Album page are all translated except the REPLY button and LEAVE A REPLY wich I can’t find the code anywhere.

I do not want to use the .po file. I tried but I find it too long at this point to go back and use that file. I do not want to purchase WPML at this time but will certainly do in another site.

Thanks !

Hey mart24!

I hope you know that if you want to ever update Soundboard you would have to make those changes to the theme files all over again. Also I’m not sure I understand how searching through the theme files would be any easier than just translating a few strings in the .po file (You don’t have to translate them all)?

But anyways, here is were you find the strings:

News page: file loop.php and single.php

Tour widget: file includes/widgets/widget-tourdates.php (only translate the dates on the right side)

Audio page: file single-audio.php

Comment buttons and the calendar widget are part of the WordPress files and not the Soundboard files.



Bit of an urgent question….

I am trying to set up the shop feature but wordpress tells me that woocommerce is not integrated with the theme… I’m not sure what to do, as I’d prefer to use something like woocommerce than just putting paypal buttons on the site.

If you could help at all that would be amazing!

Thank you


Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS (change color value / opacity value to whatever you like):

#footer, #social, #copyright { background-color: #fff; }

Icon opacity:

a.lastfm, a.twitter, a.fb, a.soundcloud, a.itunes,, a.beatport, a.social1, a.social2, a.social3, a.social4, a.social5 {
        opacity: 0.4;        

a:hover.lastfm, a:hover.twitter, a:hover.fb, a:hover.soundcloud, a:hover.itunes,, a:hover.beatport, a:hover.social1, a:hover.social2, a:hover.social3, a:hover.social4, a:hover.social5 {
        opacity: 1;

Oh that’s awesome – thank you so much!!! So does the custom css override all other stylesheets? Thanks a million for your help x

You are welcome! Yeah, the Custom CSS field does override all other stylesheets.

I would like to do two things. 1. make the menu text larger. 2. Lessen the space above and below the menu. Oh, and center the menu? I tried using what you gave a previous post, .sf-menu { width: 940px; text-align: center; font-size: 120%; font-size:1.5em; }, but it didn’t do anything. Thanks for your help,

Hey macvideodude!

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

Font size (change value to whatever you like):
.sf-menu a { font-size: 14px; }
Space above and below menu (change value to whatever you like):
#topnavi { margin-top: 15px; }
#bg-wrapper { margin-top: 20px; } 
Center menu (change 700px to the total with of your menu items):
.sf-menu { width: 700px; } 


I have a odd question.

Whats type of font is your ‘soundboard’ logo on your preview page? The one at the top.

And where do I find it? lol

I’ve been looking for something like that forever now

Hey! The font is called “Snickles”:

The logo is actually included in the theme files in the “psd files” folder.

Not sure if this has been answered before but is there anyway to replace the soundboard slider with a youtube or vimeo video? Keeping the same dimensions.

Hey! You would actually have to manually replace the slider code in the file header.php, line 120:
<?php get_template_part( 'slider' ); ?>
with the YouTube or Vimeo embed code.


Thank you! I have another question.

I updated the theme and now my footer is fixed on top of page underneath the menu bar. How can I fix this?

Did you update all theme files or just a some of them? I added a “sticky footer” to one of the updates and it sounds like that one is not working properly on your site. If you want you can get in touch via the user contact form on my proifle page and send me a link and I’ll take a look.

Hey – the theme is brilliant – thanks so much.

I’m having a slight problem with a bunch of vimeo videos on the videos page – when you click on them to play them in the lightbox, i just get a small white loading square and they never play. Any ideas?


Thanks very much!

Hey johnhelps.. that’s great to hear that you enjoy working with Soundboard :)

Can you please send me your login info via the user contact form on my profile page? Thanks!


So sorry if this has been covered – can’t seem to search the comments… Just wondering if it’s possible to reorder the gallery albums once they’ve been inputted…


Hey! Yeah that’s possible. Simply edit the publishing date in the top right corner when you edit a gallery post.


Hi, red_sun!

I’ m having a trouble that all of News title links on the HOME page somehow jump to the Tour page…should be on the News page…. Would you please tell me how to fix this ?

thank you!

I customize the Permalinks /wordpress/ category / post_id /

Sorry for my English, but I am afraid that you didn’t understand what I said…. If you would reply, that would be very helpful! thanks!

Can you please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me the link and login info so that I can take a closer look? Thanks!

Hello, I need a quick info: I keep on receiving spam emails from contact form of the site How can I do in order to stop them?

tks Gabi

Hey Gabi! The best solution would be to use a contact form plugin instead of the built-in contact form. I can recommend the “contact form 7” plugin.

If I go to plugin section in my admin panel I see “akismet” to activate But if I go in to my ftp in the plugins directory I see folder relating to Akismet but also one folder called contact form 7 But I don’t know how to activate this contact form 7 because I don’t see it in my admin panel plugins (I see only akismet)

Try to delete that contact form 7 folder and then in the WP admin area reinstall the plugin (Plugins > Add New > Search: Contact Form 7 > Install Now)

ok, I’ve installed it from admin panel but the folder does not appear in the ftp, is it correct?

For general plugin questions, please check out this site:


Thanx for a good and managable product, even for a rookie. I’ve just got started with a new homepage for our band. But we would like to link to Spotify and maybe Instagram in same manner as the social profile linking down in the footer, but we can’t seem to find any icons and such in same stylish as the other icon… I guess we could make some own but we’re lacking some skills for now. Any suggestions…?

Best regards / Teijo, Charta 77

Hey Teijo! That’s great to hear that you enjoy working with Soundboard :)

As for the icons, here you go:



Hi there, I’ve tried to set up the shop and I’ve got a problem with the style. It looks horrible. I’m using latest version of woocommerce (2.0.7) and soundboard (3.03). My site is at and you’ll see what I mean.

Hey lochi.. did you also check the “Theme Options > General > Load WooCommerce stylesheets” checkbox?

More info on how to set up the shop page you can also find in the documentation under “Setting up the Shop (WooCommerce) Page” (very bottom of the page)

Charta77, I’d be happy to make you icons to match the existing ones if you like? (no charge)

I am using Version 3.03 of Soundboard and Woo Commerce Version 2.0.7. If woo commerce is activated then the audio and video pages have a overlapping footer that covers the page. I’m not sure why this happens and is a recent event.

Others experiencing this? Is there a fix?

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

thank you very much, info sent

lochie -> I’d like that! :bigsmile:

Hej alla svenska Soundboardanvändare! (Hello all swedish Soundboard-users!)

I’ve done some work with our site to make it more swedish, alot of translation in the code. But I’d like to discuss this matter more with you swedish users. Please don’t hesitate to contact me! /Teijo, Charta 77

Love the theme, learning to make it work. Question, in the video page I notice you can add a YOUTUBE and a VIMEO link to be placed in the site, the YOUTUBE works perfectly but the VIMEO link simply doesn’t.

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

As for the Vimeo video: please make sure your embed codes starts with http:// and not with https://


massive thanks I will give it a try.

Hello – the theme has pretty much been fantastic thus far. I had two questions though. Is there a recommended procedure in the CSS that allows all form buttons to act the same was the “search” submit? When I add a new form (contact, newsletter signup etc) the submit buttons default to the form background color vs the theme color. Also, how can I remove the “days ago” line from videos and posts. Thanks!

Hey jugoe.. If possible, give the button a class of “button1” and it will look like all the other buttons on the site.

OR, if you want all submit form buttons to be styled as the existing ones, the CSS selector for form submit button looks like this:


You would have to add that CSS selector to the file style.css as well as css/css_options_panel.php below each ”.submitbutton” line.

You can change “days ago” to the actual date if you want to, in Theme Options > General. If you want to remove it, you will find the code in the files template-home.php and includes/widgets/widget-videos.php within a DIV with the class “time-ago”.

Thanks much!
