Frequently Asked Questions
How to change the icons?
In order to change the icons, copy any icon you would like to use to the “images” folder, then in the html document use simple tags without any classes, like this:
<img src="images/your-icon.png" alt="" class="" />(note the empty
class=""attribute, you can remove it).
You can find many additional icons in the “Extra” folder from the zip file you downloaded from ThemeForest.
index-nophp.html page instead.
index.html version means that you need to run the page on a web server running a standard PHP configuration. It usually works fine with most hosting providers, but in some cases you might need some adjustments.
A very common issue is the missing “cache” folder. Take a look at the “static-server”, and check if there is a “cache” folder inside it, if there isn’t then create one and set its permissions to the maximum (chmod 777).Another issue can come from the path. If you have placed your website in a sub-directory (for example www.example.com/sub-directory/index.html instead of www.example.com/index.html) then you will need to edit the
.htaccessfile packaged with Spark and prepend the path to “static-server” with the name of your subdirectory. For example:
/sub-directory/static-server/...There is 4 occurrences of the path that you need to edit.
If after all you still can’t make it work, try to load only the CSS link in your browser and see what is displayed, if there is a PHP error then it’s most likely that you are running PHP4 and not PHP5. See with your web hosting provider how to activate PHP5 instead.
If still no luck, feel free to contact me using the form in my profile page. Don’t forget to include a link to your website so I can have a look, I’ll be happy to help.
Delete the entire “cache” folder that is in the “static-server” directory. That will force its regeneration at the next page load. You might also need to clear the cache of your web browser (Control+Shift+Delete).
If your site is already online and public, instead of clearing the cache, upgrade the version number of the file in both the filename and the HTML document where the CSS or JS file is included. Both the “static-server” and the web browser will consider it as a new file and therefore will load it right away without the need to clear any cache — This “new” file will be cached like other files, both by the web browser and by the “static-server” script.
index-nophp.html version which doesn’t have any specific caching.
When I use Non-Latin Characters they are displayed with another font (or “How to add Character Sets“)
In order to add support for more characters, go to Google Fonts > Open Sans and select the Character Sets you need in Step 2, for example check the “Greek” checkbox to support Greek characters:
Once done replace the following in the HTML code with the code provided in Step 3 on Google Fonts:
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,600,400italic' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>So to add support for Greek characters you will replace the above with this:
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,600,400italic&subset=latin,greek' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
In this example, you can also check the “Greek Extended” checkbox if you require more Greek characters, but make sure to include it only if needed as it will add weight to the page.
