Hi Punkatess… thanks!

I did purchase it and when I installed the primary theme, my site when completely white… couldn’t even log into the back end. Had to FTP into the rear and remove the theme to get my wordpress install to respond. This is not good at ALL. :(

Hey Jonathan,

I lied… though I did figure out what the problem was. I’m on bleeding edge nightlies on my local install… so, that appear to be the reason…. I’m about to install it on 3.5.1. Will update! ;)

Hey Jonathan,

Just purchased and installed.

First off what a nice theme. I have 2 questions 1. how do I embed a video into the sliders on the main page? I found the short codes but can’t get the video to adjust and fit with the correct dimensions the video is cut off at the top. 2. Why is my version wider than the demo version?? the page is wide enough to have a scroller from left to right at the bottom of the page? how can I adjust the width?

Thank you!

Hello waxthepax,

Thanks for your comment, could you share the link to your site so I can take a look at the issue? Horizontal scrollbar is not normal behavior! For the video, take a look at this reply: http://themeforest.net/item/spark-responsive-onepage-html5-wordpress-theme/discussion/2372522?page=10#comment_2513448

Let me know if that helps, I look forward to your reply ;) Best, Jonathan

Hey thanks for your reply, your website looks good to me, I don’t see any horizontal scrollbars, did you change anything? Let me know! Best, Jon

(Along with Woo Commerce stated in a previous post) I’m also thinking of using Ajax Translator Revolution Dropdown WP plugin, Social Coupon for WP and Font resizer plug in…do you know if these work well with your template? Or can you recommend replacements for me? Thanks.

Hello cairns_nic,

Thanks for your messages, and sorry for the delay, I haven’t looked at WooCommerce yet so I couldn’t say, but I believe that a proper integration with it would require some adjustments. I will try to take a look at it anytime soon and will report back.

Regarding the other plugins you mentioned, chances are that they will work just fine but I haven’t tested those specific ones myself so I could not guarantee that they’re fully compatible, even if they might be.

I hope that helps! Please feel free to let me know if there’s anything else I can assist you with ;) Best, Jonathan

Hi tl999 thanks for your reply, I can see that there are javascript errors on your site.. I’m going to release an update of the theme within a couple of days which might address the issues that you encounter, could you hold and wait until the update is released? Thanks a lot for your patience ;) Best, Jon

Jonathan,

I noticed that the blog section doesn’t accomodate for featured images. Is that coming in the update? OH, please tell me it is… :)

YOU ROCK THE CASBAH!!! Thanks Jonathan!!! :)

One last thing and I’ll leave you alone (at least for today! ;-) – How do I move the ‘Blog’ position in the landing menu to the else where in the menu? I want to use the “landing-page” menu for the first page and then a secondary menu on the static pages but want control over the position of the ‘Blog’ placement.

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hey there, thanks for your comments! To do what you want to need to switch the Menu to “Manual” mode in order to have full control and be able to organize it as you wish.

You can assign different menus for the landing-page and for the other pages, and you can order the links however you want in the landing-page menu using the WordPress Menu Builder, please take a look at this video tutorial I made especially for configuring the menu: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7SFpyzYlZw

If any question remains do not hesitate to let me know ;) Best, Jonathan

Hello. Is it possible to add button on big 940 slider? I need a button on the slider (left bottom corner)

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello ggektor,

Thanks for your reply. So in order to remove the hover effect add this CSS rule to the “Custom CSS” tab in the Theme Options page:

.flexslider a img:hover {
  opacity: 1;
}

That should do it! Please feel free to let me know if I can assist you any further ;) Best, Jonathan

well, i did as you say and here is a screenshot: http://yadi.sk/d/dTS6amNf4GriZ but nothing changed, i still have hover effect on slider. And one more thing… Are you sure that this modification apply only to slider? Because i still need hover effect on buttons and other images…

JoNa
JoNa Author

Aaah I see the copy/past did not work properly, just remove the “‹pre›” before and “‹/pre›” after the rule and it should work!

I confirm that it only affects linked images in a slider, and does not affect the hover effect on other elements on the page ;)

Let me know if that fixes it! Best, Jon

I got a lot of spam by this contact form. Can you create some kind of security mod? CAPTCHA or something..

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hey ggektor,

Thanks for reporting this, I know about that and I’m looking for a solution in the coming update. I know of some people who have replaced the default form with the “Contact Form 7” plugin which allows to add a Captcha and other custom fields. I hope that helps ;) Best, Jonathan

Jonathan,

I purchased this, and am using the child theme you included. I have put a lot of custom css in the Custom CSS section of the Admin. However, the site will not read any of it. I have changed all of the following:

h1 h2 h3 h4 h5 h6 h7 h8 h9 h10 h11 h12

Yet none of them read the new font. Why is this functionality not working? This is crucial functionality. Sometimes one of the items will be the <h> tag from the Custom CSS, but 95% of the time it defaults to just the theme CSS and completely ignores the Custom CSS I have added to the Admin. We are launching the site Wednesday the 17th. Please let me know what needs to be changed so this works. Thank you.

Hi Jonathan,

I’ve cleared the cash, tried multiple browsers, rebooted my system, shut it down for an hour, I tried it in Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer and I’m still having the same issue. I even moved it to the production site, and it will not read the CSS. I don’t have the google font plug in installed, the font is linked in the Header.php file, but as you can see the font is not showing up with the correct style. All of the <h> tags are in the Custom CSS field of the Spark Theme.

http://checkedup.com/site/

I’m not using any other third party plugins.

Jonathan,

The CSS is showing up in the Page Source, I’ve added it to the Custom CSS in the Spark Admin, to style.css in both the parent and child Spark themes, and it is still not showing up in any browser on the production stie.

http://checkedup.com/site/

I even tried to just override the body tag with red, the same that I have the default set to on my dev site, and even that won’t show up.

body {

color: #fc0214 !important;

}

Why is this not working anywhere? Is there something I am missing? I’ve again cleared my cache in all the browsers and it makes no difference. It still shows the default style of your theme.

JoNa
JoNa Author

Dear Tess,

The problem comes from one of your rules put in the “Custom CSS” field, which breaks all following CSS code:

article#footer_modified { background: url(http://checkedup.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/footer1.jpg }

The closing parenthesis here is missing, therefor until it is closed all code is considered as part of the background URL.

Simply add the missing parenthesis and it will unlock the situation (allowing the code that comes after to be parsed):
article#footer_modified { background: url(http://checkedup.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/footer1.jpg) }

I recommend you to help yourself identifying such typo mistakes using this tool: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_input

I hope that helps, and please feel free to let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist you further ;) Best, Jonathan

Hi People,

I would like to manage a menu with a sub menu. I guess it’s impossible with te automatic menu (theme’s options), so i tried the manual one (with parent pages and the appearance options) with the drag and drop items but it doesn’t work please help :’(

JoNa

Hello fourneaunumerique,

Thank you for your comment. First, in the manual mode make sure to follow the instructions from the PDF documentation file included in the ZIP file, this is in order to keep the landing-page navigation working.

Now if you need to add nested/sub-menus it is not yet supported by the theme, but it will be by the end of the week as I will release an update with this new feature (dropdown menus), so if you can please hold for a couple of days and keep posted! Thanks for your patience! ;) Best, Jonathan

Yeah i cannot wait a couple of days :) I’m joking this theme is just amazing :)

Hey there fourneaunumerique, I just wanted to let you know that Spark 3.0 is now available for download! Take a look at the item description page for a full list of new features ;) Best, Jon

Great theme! For the landingpage its that possible to have a video instead of the image slider?

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello Brelle,

Thanks for your comment! Absolutely you can replace the slider with a video, or even put a video within the slider as part of other slides! For that you will need to use shortcodes to manually build the “welcome block” so you can put whatever you want on the right column, please see here for details: http://themeforest.net/item/spark-responsive-onepage-html5-wordpress-theme/discussion/2372522?page=10#comment_2513448

Please feel free to let me know if you need any further instructions on how to set it up, I’ll be happy to assist you ;) Best, Jonathan

Hmmmm I have just re-verified again, it looks perfectly fine! It loads the CSS and JS files from http://1-ps.googleusercontent.com, I know of some situations when this domain is blocked, for example in some enterprise networks… make sure that the problem doesn’t come from that.

Also, if you are logged-in, you and I don’t see the same thing, make sure to try when you’re logged-out. Please feel free to send me credentials to your admin and I’ll take a look for you ;) Best, Jonathan

Hi there, is it possible to link to tabs within other tabs/ pages? If so, how? Thanks!

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello jdaviescoates,

Thanks for an interesting question, I’m not sure about nested-tabs, but if you add the #tab-id to a link it should open that tab on page load. For example: http://example.com/your-page/#tab-02

Please let me know if that responds to your need ;) Best, Jonathan

Default-user

Hmz, I see how that would work, but I wanted to link to a tab within a section on the landing page from another section on the landing page. Sounds like that isn’t really possible?

Also, something odd has happened to my slider…

See http://slaleyroseandcrown.co.uk/ there is a weird grey bit below the images like something has gone misaligned. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Josef.

Hello Josef,

Thank you for your comment. I’m not sure if I can see what you’re mentioning. When I first read your description I though it would be related with the caption but it seems to be aligned correctly, did you change anything since posting your message? Let me know! Best, Jonathan

Default-user

Hi there, I had changed the value of .flex-caption bottom from -20 to -8 that fixed it at the time (but, I later noticed, broke it in a different way on other browsers… turns out it was something to do with one of my firefox addons playing silly buggers)

Ok great thanks for the follow-up, I’m glade you’ve managed to find out where it came from! :)

Also, something odd has happened to my slider…

See http://slaleyroseandcrown.co.uk/ there is a weird grey bit below the images like something has gone misaligned. Any ideas?

EDIT: by using firebug it would appear that editing the value of .flex-caption bottom can get rid of that weird grey bit – but I haven’t edit that value before, so don’t understand why it has changed? Can you see anything else on my site that might have caused the whole thing to shift down?

Thanks in advance,

Josef.

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hmmmmm perhaps it could be related with the change of the layout’s width to 1000px wide, to be confirmed… Anyway I’m glad you’ve managed to fix it ;) Jon

Default-user

It had something to do with one of my firefox addons, not sure which one.

Note to self: when something inexplicable and weird is happening when developing a website: restart firefox in safe mode to see if it is just an addon causing the weirdness!

Hi JoNa,

Spark is a great theme! I have a question about (surprise, surprise) the slider.

Currently the slider on my site is build entirely out of shortcodes. I’d love to have it rotate through all the images only once and then stop on the last image (the fourth picture).

Is it possible to do this? If so, how?

Thanks!

Added note: P.S. The forum isn’t tagging us as “Purchased” but we bought a copy of this theme. Thx!

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello Experience_Lab,

Thanks for your reply. Ok I see what you need, I’ll add support for more attributes for the [slider] shortcode so you can configure each slider on the page separately. Please allow a few days to release the update, I’ll try keep to you posted when it is available for download ;) Best, Jonathan

Default-user

Great! Thanks for this, Jonathan.

Has the update taken place yet? If so, where can I find it?

Thx.

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello Experience_Lab,

Thanks for your message and sorry for the delay, I have just released the update and it is now being processed by Envato. I believe it should be available for download within a few hours. The update will be available for download in your Downloads page: Look at the top of the current page under your personal menu (on the top right) you should have a “Downloads” link.

I have added a new variable to control each slider looping independently, it is available for both the Main Slider and for the shortcode variant, and is fully documented in the “Shortcode” tab in the Theme Options page ;)

I hope that answers your needs, please feel free to contact me again if there’s anything else I can assist you with. Best, Jonathan

Hola Jon! :)

Wanted report a bug once installed into WordPress 3.5.1. I receive this awesome sauce when activating the theme for my company. I can get you login if you would like to investigate more. Here’s the error message:
