Does the home page use short codes or portfolio items?

Any direction on how the home-page is created/structured would be much appreciated.

JollyGoodThemes

Hi myeggnoodles,

The structure of the home page templates is intentionally quite rigid. I’ve quickly outlined all the different sections below. Let me know if you want me to expand on anything.

The content in the header/slideshow area is maintained with a simple slides post type.

The blue bar beneath the slideshow is maintained with three widgetized columns.

The content section below the blue bar uses the standard WordPress editor. It’s possible to use the short codes provided by the Zilla Shortcodes plugin here with the full width home page template.

The quote section is controlled through the theme options and can be set to display on all pages, just the home page or not at all.

The footer has a single widget section on the right.

Hi. I’ve just installed your theme for my non profit business, and I’m having an issue with the home page. If I have the theme plugin activated, and the slides visible, I lose the theme title and home page main navigation. I appreciate your advice, and happy to email you login details. Thank you.

Hi RobertBettmann,

Does the title and navigation also disappear on the inner pages? If you could send me an email with the site and login details that would be great – http://themeforest.net/user/JollyGoodThemes#contact

Hi JollyGoodThemes, I would like to get the slider sliding automatically. I took a look for an option but can’t figure it out so I checked /js/scripts.js and I saw the slider is set to slide automatically but it doesnt’ work. How can I make the slider sliding automatically?

Thank you for your support

JollyGoodThemes

Hi Ntcsrl,

You just need to change the “timeout” property on line 61 in the /js/scripts.js file. It uses milliseconds so changing it to

timeout: 5000,

will make the slide change every five seconds.

Hi I am having the same issue as the previous comment, I have now changed the “timeout” as you mention but this is still not automating the slider:

Ok mine has just started working now as well, I had a button on a slide with no URL, I have just added that URL and the slideshow is now working.

JollyGoodThemes

Hmm, it’s unlikely it was the button, your browser probably just had a cached version of the scripts.js file. Either way glad to hear you’ve got it working! Let me know if you need any more help with theme.

Navigation sub menu only shows first in the list. The rest is not showing. If I change the position to relative or fixed, the items show up but the layout is completely messed up. Any ideas?

Hi kjaonline,

There’s no built in way to change the slider pager into arrows but it wouldn’t be too difficult to do. For customization work you can contact me through my profile http://themeforest.net/user/JollyGoodThemes#contact for a quote or you might also be able to find someone through http://studio.envato.com/ to help with customizations.

Hi, I’m trying to make a menu item scroll down to an id instead of a new page. Is that possible, and if so, how? I’d like the About button to simply scroll the page down to the About section. Here’s the site: www.sharonbially.com. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

JollyGoodThemes

Hi sdh137,

Yup it’s fairly easy to do you just need to include the ID you want to jump to in your menu link. To do that follow these steps:

  1. Go to Appearance -> Menus and select Links
  2. In the URL field add the URL for your page with the ID you want to jump to e.g. http://www.sharonbially.com#About
  3. Add your Link Text, click Add to menu and then finally save the menu.

After you’ve done that clicking that menu item should jump to whatever element you’ve given the “About” ID.

If you want it to smoothly scroll to the ID adding the following to the scripts.js file should do the trick:

$('a[href*=#]:not([href=#])').on('click', function(e) {
        var href = $(this).attr('href').split('#');
        var hrefURL = href[0];
        var hrefID = href[1];

        if (hrefURL === location.href.replace(/\/$/, "")) {
            e.preventDefault();

            $('html, body').animate({
                scrollTop: $('#' + hrefID).offset().top + 5
            }, 700);
        }
    });

Sweet. That worked almost perfectly. The only problem is it doesn’t recognize if I put an ID on the page title “About”. It works fine if ID a piece of text but then position is too far down. Any thoughts on that?

JollyGoodThemes

Ah ok you’ll just need to open up the partials/post.php file and change line 4 to the following:

<?php the_title('<h1 id="'. get_the_title() . '" class="post-title">', '</h1>'); ?>

That will make the ID for the h1 tag the same as the title on all pages.

Perfect! One more thing and I won’t ever bother you again. The About button is now permanently highlighted. Any easy way to fix that?

JollyGoodThemes

No worries, it’s a little hacky but adding the following to the scripts.js file should work:

$('a[href*=#]:not([href=#])').parent().removeClass('current-menu-item');

if (window.location.hash) {
    $('.menu-item').removeClass('current-menu-item');
    $('.menu-item').has('a[href*="' + window.location.hash + '"]').addClass('current-menu-item');
}

$('.menu-item').on('click', function(e) {
    $('.menu-item').removeClass('current-menu-item');
    $(this).addClass('current-menu-item');
});

By the way if you haven’t already it would be great if you could rate the theme!

Hi there.

Just bought your theme and am really liking it. However I am having some problems and would love if you could help me fix this.

1. I have created a gallery for one of the pages of my site. The images on the gallery are really pixled even though they should be fine – e.g. http://laila.is/um-mig/fyrri-verkefni – and when you click on them you can see that they are fine.

2. Can you give me advice where I can change the code and how I do it so that the description text can be aligned right to the image.

3. And finally where can I add the slider and the boxes below like your template showed?

Looking forward for you reply – thanks

3.

JollyGoodThemes

Hi lailas,

Thanks!

1 – Ah I hadn’t noticed this before, it’s an easy fix you just need to open up the style.css file and replace

width: 90%;

with:

width: auto;
max-width: 100%;

If you’d like to make the thumbnails larger (they’re 150px by default) you can do that in Settings -> Media. After changing the thumbnail size you’ll need to regenerate the thumbnails, the easiest way to do that is with this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

2 – I’m assuming you mean the description text for the gallery thumbnails? Adding the following to your CSS should do the trick:

.wp-caption-text {
    text-align: right;
    padding-right: 17px; 
}

You may need to adjust the padding value.

3 – To set up the home page slideshow you just need to install the Sputnik Theme Plugin that was included with the theme. Once it’s installed you’ll see a “Slides” post type in the WordPress admin which will allow to add slides to the header. The “Featured Slideshow” section of the help file has a little more information on this.

The blue banner section is just built with widgets, you can add widgets to it from Appearance -> Widgets in the WordPress admin.

Hopefully that answers everything! Let me know if you need any more help or if anything’s not clear!

Brilliant – thank you for this. But item number 2 is still not fixed. I want the description text (not caption) to be beside the image (http://laila.is/um-mig/fyrri-verkefni/eric/) not below it. However I can not find the wp-description-text for the gallery in the style sheet. Can you please advice me again. – thanks.

JollyGoodThemes

No problem, adding the following to your CSS should get you what you want:

.post-content .attachement {
    float: left;
    margin-right: 30px;
}

If you want the attachment pages to be full width like the rest of your site you’ll need to remove the “secondary-content” div from the single.php file and add the “full-width” class to the “primary-class” div.

Hello,

I don’t understand how to insert an slideshow in the header of th home page. Can you help me please ?

Thanks

JollyGoodThemes

Hi OTF2014,

You just need to install the Sputnik Theme Plugin that comes included with the theme. After you’ve installed it you’ll see a “Slides” post type in your WordPress admin that you can add slides to. The slides will appear on any page using one of the “Home” templates. The theme documentation has a little more information but just let me know if there’s anything you still don’t understand.

Hi buffalonickel,

I initially designed the theme homepage in Photoshop but decided not to release it with the theme as it’s not very polished. If you email me through my profile I’d be happy to send it over to you but I’m not sure how valuable it will be. What do you need it for?

Hi JollyGoodThemes, I got an issue with the contact form. I just translated in my native langue the error notices and labels but everything remains like it was just after the download of your theme. For example:

- here I edited “name” and “surname” <label for=”contact-name”><?php _e(‘Nome e cognome’, ‘sputnik’); ?> * </label>

- here the error about data insert is changed like this:

<?php _e("Sembra che ci sia stato un problema con i dati inseriti. Per favore controlla i campi obbligatori e invia nuovamente.", 'sputnik'); ?>

I first worked offline using XAMPP then put the website online. I checked both offline and online (putting correct data on the WP DB like mail server, port, etc..) but I got a data insert error that tells me to check the required data even I filled them right: name and surname: jon smith email: a working email phone: 1234567890 note: check

How can I make it working?

Thanks for your support

Hi, I would like to translate labels and messages of the contact form. Can I do that without modifying PHP code?

Thanks in advance for the answer.

Hi gsteenmetz,

Yes, there are several translation plugins that will help you translate the theme quite easily from within the WordPress admin. A popular option is http://wpml.org/ and a free option is http://wordpress.org/plugins/qtranslate/.

Hi there, I am fairly new to Wordpress, I have limited coding knowledge. is there an easy way to disable the Sidebar on Some pages, and if not Some I will accept all pages?

Thanks in advance!!

JollyGoodThemes

Hi candencegrace,

You can create pages without a sidebar by using the “Full Width” page template. The template a page uses can be changed from the “Page Attributes” box on the right hand side when editing a page.

Hi! Maybe i´ts something simple but i don´t find the way to leave the menu fixed.. I preffer the header menu (the fixed one) rather than the one with the small blue box that disappears. How can I leave the fixed one?

I have another issue. Can you recommend me any good translation plugin? I´ll need to add 3 more languages on my webpage. Thanks! :)

JollyGoodThemes

Hi jimena-jim,

Sorry I’m not quite sure what you mean by the fixed menu. What page of the demo are you seeing this on?

A popular plugin for translation is http://wpml.org/ it works well but isn’t free unfortunately and another option is http://wordpress.org/plugins/qtranslate/ which is free. :)

Default-user

Hi :) Thanks! well, i mean by the fixed menu to the one shown in the sceenshots

http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/6913871-sputnik-a-tidy-business-wordpress-theme?url_name=sputnik-a-tidy-business-wordpress-theme

I preffer this menu rather than the one shown after clicking on the blue square. I mean, is it possible to leave the menu permanent? Thanks again!

JollyGoodThemes

Ah so you want to have the large slider/header on every page? The easiest way to do that would be to use one of the three “Home” page templates on all of your pages but this would mean that you’d have the same slide images/text on every page. The template a page uses can be changed from the “Page Attributes” box on the right hand side when editing a page.

Default-user

Hi :) well that could be usefull too. But I´m talking about the menu. as you can see on your screenshots, it´s shown at the header. (The mobile menu with the blue box isn´t shown) I need the header menu not the mobile menu. But can´t find the way to select that option. I´ve tried on the “Appearence”anD “Customize” sections. But it staus the same :( . I hope I´ve made myself clear. Maybe my English is not that good :)

JollyGoodThemes

Ah ok now I understand! I was just confused because usually when people say fixed menu they mean a menu that sticks to the top of the screen when the user scrolls down.

The mobile menu is displayed on smaller screens to make sure everything fits nicely, if you were to view your site on a larger screen you would see the full menu like in the screenshots. I wouldn’t really recommend changing it as it could make navigation difficult for users, that said you can try disabling it by opening up the style.css file and removing the following starting on line 1445:

  .nav-header {
    display: none; }

  .button-nav-mobile {
    display: block; }

If you’d like to keep the mobile menu on smaller screens you could move the above code into the block on line 1493 starting with:

@media only screen and (max-width: 940px) {

Hopefully that helps! If you need any more explanation just let me know. :)

Default-user

Ohhh ok!! Ohh I feel stupid now :bashfulcute: I have a super small screen… and of course this is a responsive theme….I´m new with this but I´m trying to do my best…thanks so much! Just another question. I´ve installed the qtranslate plugin. As I told you, I need 4 languages (4 flags). Is it possible to place the flags over the menu? in case it´s not possible can you recommend me where to place these? Thanks so much!!

JollyGoodThemes

I haven’t used the qtranslate plugin myself so I don’t know exactly unfortunately. You can try placing the following in the header.php file above wp_nav_menu on line 37 but it will probably also require extra css to get it working right.

<?php echo qtrans_generateLanguageSelectCode('image'); ?>

If qtranslate comes with a widget you could also try placing it in the sidebar or footer widget area.

Default-user

Hi again, well i tried with qtranslate but it was a little bit limited for what i need, so I payed for WPML (ouch) . Now it´s easy to place the languages at the header. But now I have a new issue….WPML gave me some problems and erros. The main problem is this message:

Notice: Undefined index: jgt-page-options in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/sputnik-theme-plugin/jgt-page-options.php on line 72

Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/sputnik-theme-plugin/jgt-page-options.php:72) in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 1121

So i guess this is a problem of compatibility with the Sputnik theme plugin. Once I deactivate it, everything goes well. Is there any solution? I need a slider on my webpage :(

Thanks!

JollyGoodThemes

What page are you seeing the errors on? and what version of the Sputnik Theme Plugin are you using? You can see the version number on the plugins page in the admin, it should be 1.2.0. I’ve set up the theme and plugin to be compatible with WPML so it should all work. I’ll try and get this fixed for you asap.

Default-user

yes, that´s the version I´m using (1.2.0) and the message appears ech time I try to modify the text (not the appearence) of any of the languages on any page. Thanks!

Can you provide any input on putting a favicon in place? Typically this is found in Theme Customization from my experience so I’m just wondering where I can do this (besides FTP). Thanks!

Hi neonslush,

That’s an option I admittedly hadn’t thought about, I think I’ll probably add it to an update soon. In the meantime you could try one of the favicon plugins available.

Hi,

I’ve encountered some issue with the theme when viewed with Internet Explorer. I’m new to Wordpress(more familiar with Prestashop) so I hope you can help.

1) The homepage slider doesn’t show up correctly. This is someone else’s website but it has the exact same problem when viewed with IE.

http://laila.is/

2) The slider plugin (Meta Slider) doesn’t show up in IE.

3) I’ve embedded some youtube videos on a page but they don’t show up either.

Thanks

Hi,

The problems were caused by IE’s security settings. Sorry about. Once the settings were restored to default, everything started working properly :)

Hi taiyopooh,

Glad to hear you got it sorted. I’m assuming IE was just preventing JavaScript from running?

Hi. I have an issue with home page. The slider doesn’t work correctly. Instead of slide view it is just a list view. But it’s ok when I logged on to Wordpress console. What I did wrong ? You can check that here: http://chit-bit.com Thanks.

JollyGoodThemes

Hi allexx2012,

It looks like the W3 Total Cache plugin might be causing the problem. Can you try disabling it and let me know if that fixes it? If it does I’ll look into adding W3 Total Cache support to the theme in the next update.

Default-user

Indeed it was W3 Total Cache. Thanks a lot. P.S. I also disable plugin Autoptimize which “Optimizes your website, concatenating the CSS and JavaScript code, and compressing it.” Then I activate W3 TC again, and toggle off Minify and evrth work fine :)

Great, thanks for letting me know!
