Hi, I really like this theme but I’m trying to research some more before I purchase it. I have some relatively easy questions:

1. Can I add a clickable headline with the images i post with the basic image slider or can I make the images clickable even if the headline is not clickable. 2. I can vary the size of the images displayed on the image slider, right ? 3. How translation friendly is this theme. 4. In general how is this theme as far as the speed of loading the page is concerned. 5. Do you guys have a forum for this theme where we can seek help or this is it ?

Thanks Sanchit

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Thank you for your interest!

1. There is an individual link option for each slide image, so you can easily add an on click link for each slides, not for just title text.

2. The slider viewport can have any aspect ratio you wish and the uploaded images for slides can be any size. The size of the slider will be the same for all slides created for the particular basic image slider, so if some image is bigger then the slider size, then it will be cropped. The aspect ratio of the slider can be defined by the first slide image size or it can be defined by height and width values.

3. The Osaka theme is translation ready and the *.po files are included. We found already that one or two strings missing from the translation, but this will be fixed with the update.

4. I think the loading is fast thanks to the new optimized rendering engine built for this theme, but it usually depends on a few factors. But from the theme side and features it offers, I think it’s well optimized.

5. The support is currently provided via the comments section and email (our TF profile contact form), but this will probably move soon to a support forum.

Hi Another question:

Can I have a contact form wherever I want to, for example a person clicks on an image on the basic image slider and is redirected to a contact form ? Thanks

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Yes, you can build multiple contact forms in the Contact Form Builder, and then place these forms on any page with the Content Builder.

You can for example create some page with Content Builder template, place there Contact segment in Content Builder for this page and in segment options you select which contact form it will display. Then you just add an image link to this page for the selected slide in Basic Image Slider and that’s it.

Thanks for your help so far, I’m nearly finished all the css edits I am planning. When using the full width layout, and placing images in the centre, a lot of the info / headings stick to left-align, and I feel they need to be centre aligned like the images.

1. Can the Main Menu headings be centre algined? 2. Can the Main Menu use a Google replacement font like the body etc? 3. Can the Blog post title be centered? 4. Can the blog post info below the main image be centered?

Would you be able to tell me some of the css places to edit as when I look it doesn’t seen very straightforward.

One error that I’m having it the on my blog posts viewed in firefox, they never complete loading, firefox keeps the ‘tranferring data’ text all time. I’m not sure how to debug to see what its still trying to download – even though the post views perfect. http://www.justin-bailey.co.uk

Thanks again.

Hello,

1. In regards to the menu, I think it is working on your site, so you already found this or didn’t noticed the change because of the used font characteristic. For the main menu items uppercase is enabled, so you can turn it off in CSS – remove text-transform from:

#dc-primary-theme-menu > li > a

You can also change the Google Font to some fancy one to better see the differences.

2. As for the link in excerpt – the link in excerpt should not be used because of this and it is will all type of tags. If it will be cut without the closing tag than it will always affect the rest of the site. So you can’t use it like this or just make sure it is not cut in the middle.

3. I think you write about page Weddings with Blog segment and posts pages – it is a full width page and the margins for images are visible because they depend on the image size, so in fact there are no margins set just empty space on the sides because you use images 950px wide (smaller than hi-res content full width – 1024px). If you would upload bigger images they will be full width. The same is with images on posts page.

Also, we will check the dcs_column shortcode, because there might be some small bug and if needed we will add this with the update. But, in regards to the shortcode used in this way – still, if you will add margins of some pixel value for text content, then the problem will exist on all the responsive layouts, especially the smallest displays (because even a small margin might be to big for small display). I think a better way for this would be to have a full width content (bigger images) or leave it like it is at this moment. I think some solution might be also to use a custom construction for post text content – for example insert the content that you have in the editor into a div container like this:

<div style="max-width:950px; margin:auto;">Your content here</div>

I think this should work in your case (or you would need to insert each paragraph). Then you can also add class to the CSS with these two values and use only div with this class, so you don’t need to add style properties each time for posts. But this will work only for posts single page.

The Google Font still doesn’t work, the way I tested it was by using ‘Crafty Girls’ font, which is very obvious, so I’m still stuck there. Putting the entire blog post within the div style worked perfectly, thank-you for teaching me how to do this.

Maybe you can send us access to your WP admin (using contact from in our Theme Forest profile) and I will take a look on this?

Hi :) Its a very beautiful theme, but i am new i wordpress, so its very difficuld for me to start with this theme.

Is there a more extensive guide to getting started with this theme?

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Did you checked also the videos on the Live Preview Videos section. Here you will find the basic instruction how to start (from scratch or with sample content):

http://digitalcavalry.com/themeforest/live/wp/osaka/videos/

This should help you additionally to the User Guide, but let us know if you will have any questions about recreating some part of the Live Preview demo site.

I can’t add any more than 29 menu items (this includes mega menu columns that act as menu items in the list). If I add an item to the bottom of the menu list it disappears after I save. If I add an item and move it up in the list the bottom item disappears. I haven’t found any way to add more than 29 items. Strange… Other than that, this theme is great!

Is this a common issue and what can I do to correct it? Thanks
DigitalCavalry

Hello,

This problem is most probably related to server settings. On your server in php.ini file there might be parameter max_input_vars set to value around 1000 or there is no parameter max_input_vars at all. You will need to change this parameter value to lets say: max_input_vars = 5000 (or if there is no parameter, then you can just try to add it). This should be possible to do on your server with the php.ini file or you will need to ask your host about this change.

After this it should work fine. Thank you!

Hi,

Nice theme! A few quick pre-sales questions:

  • Is there a setting in the admin area to change the background color of the inner content area on all the pages from white to grey? So there will be grey behind the logo, menu and content areas.
  • Is it possible to add custom css in the admin area instead of directly editing the css in the theme folder?
  • Will you be adding a shortcode for tabs, toggles and accordions in the near future?
  • Is there an option for a filterable photo NGG gallery?
  • Can the homepage animation be set to any height? 150px in height for example?
  • Is it possible to include a really wide logo? For example 700px in width?

Thanks so much.

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

1. No, this is not possible. It needs modification in the CSS file and not only for the main containers, but it will also need some small adjustment in a few other places of CSS file.

2. I hope this will be added with an update, but currently there is no option for this.

3. We have this on the list, so I think yes, but can’t promise this at this moment.

4. No, there is no live filterable gallery option.

5. I am not sure what you mean by homepage animation, can you explain this a bit more? You mean some slider? Maybe you can point me to this with a link or a bit more details.

6. It is possible to have wider logo than the one one the live preview, but it also depends on your header setup. From what I tested, with all the search panel on header – the logo maximum width is 548 pixels, so it looks perfect in all responsive displays. But, you can also switch with one option to have a centered logo at the top, and all the search panel or icons centered below – in this type of setup the maximum logo width for best result is 740px.

In regards to the logo size, we will look on this a bit more for the coming update, I think the might be a solution for even wider logo on header but some small changes are needed.

Thank you for your interest!

Ok so i purchased the theme with the idea of really upping the design on my current site due to just how good the theme looks.

Here is the problem, the theme will not load up once installed. I have checked all SQL details, all wordpress information and PHP versions. Tried it on a number of hosts, along with main and sub domains and a fresh install each time of WP. Just the a blank white screen

If you can let me know a fix, this would be appreciated

Hi,

your theme is really incredible and so much fun to work with.

The only thing I’m missing are tabs for my blog posts – something like this:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-ui/

I don’t want to ruin your beautiful theme by installing the wrong plugin. Do have some advise how to create tabs (as a non-coder). Are there any plans to implement tabs in the future?

Your help would be highly appreciated.

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Yes, we have adding tabs in plans and I think it will be possible to add this with one of the future updates, but because it is not ready yet, I can’t promise this at this moment.

We also didn’t used any plugin for tabs, so hard to say which one will work and fit the best for this theme. I hope we will have this feature soon included.

Thank you!

Hi,

I purchased Superior Osaka theme two days back. The main driving points behind my purchase were – 1) it looked very nice in the live preview. 2) I have very basic familiarity with website building, infact this would be the first website that I am building. And the theme description said its very easy to use.

I believe I will get comfortable with the theme as and when i keep exploring its features. However, I am stuck at a very basic level!

I have been trying very hard to change my homepage. I am looking to set my homepage in one of the very many formats which you say is possible ( eg. the basic slider (5 rows), basic slider, basic and board mix, etc). But nowhere can I find an option to do so! I have tried going on Appearance > Theme > Superior Osaka > Customize. Even there it is not happening! Please tell me how it can be done. I am pretty much stuck! Thanks

Hello,

I see you already found a solution, thanks for the information. There are some basic instruction in User Guide PDF file for how to start, but you can also take a look on our example videos in section Videos on our Live Preview demo site – this should help a bit more if still needed.

Hi Again, Oke after more playing around with the theme, I have kind of figured out the answer to my earlier question. I am working on the Content Builder to get the kind of appearance that I desire. However, I am not being able to get a full width view as yet inspite of numerous tries! How can i change my page display to a full width one? Thanks,

Pulkit

Hello,

You can choose layout for any page or post when you edit this page/post. For page you will find layout options in Page Common Settings right below the editor and SEO section. For post you will find layout option in Post Common Settings.

Hello, The current gallery pages (NGG) seems to be not dynamic content driven. I like the layouts you created but I think it is double entry to have pictures you already have on server to upload again in to gallery. Since Board Slider Blogs (which are dynamic) cannot be used with sidebar, and NGG gallery pages are not dynamic, what options you recommend I can use to achieve similar look like Board Slider Blog, but with sidebar. Thanks for your help.

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Board Slider can be used only on a full width page layout – in various configurations but in the way presented on the Live Preview. Currently, there is not other feature that works in similar way, that could be used on sidebar page layout. NGG segments or shortcodes work only with NGG galleries, so they can’t be dynamic linked with posts or pages like you described it.

hi !

How can I do if I want to change the background of the pages ?

Instead of white , I’d like to change the color : http://www.herveguyot.fr

thank you

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

This can be done with some modification in CSS files (you can do this only in the one CSS file located in “css” folder – the one that is used on your site based on selected display mode – it is common.css at the moment when I check your site). So, in common.css you need to change background-color for classes like: .dc-body-inner-wrapper and .dc-secondary-wrapper, plus some other classes. This change will need to change the background-color for the main containers, but it might also need some small color changes in CSS for other theme features.

Hallo, I bought the Theme yesterday, prepared a completly fresh installation of Wordpress, installed the Theme too and followed step bu step the instructions from your video “How to start – import sample data” At the end, the result has something wrong (you can have a look at www.nexpert.it/cms ). In fact I got a couple of errors when importing the cms and menu settings .zip file; wordpress says: Checking file.. OK Checking extract dir.. OK Opening ZIP archive.. Error Sorry, but an error occurred while updating the settings. (of course the files are there!) Please help me. bye

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Looks like not all files were imported correctly, but hard to say what might be the problem. Maybe it was something temporary with the connection, so you can try to make this operation once again and maybe this will help. Also just as a note – make sure you first activate the theme before making any import operation.

It might be also related to PHP version, so you can first check what PHP version is set on your server. Changing PHP version on server fixed this problem for one other client earlier, so I think this might be the problem.

PHP version is 5.3.19 The connection is good, and I have already tried several times, also installing again wordpress and the theme from scratch. The main problem is with the menu, not loaded at all: when I try to upload the file osaka_menu_main_menu_id_2_22-December-2012.zip, worpress come out with the error: Checking file.. OK Checking extract dir.. OK Opening ZIP archive.. Error Sorry, but an error occurred while updating the settings / for your investigation I can give you the login and password.

Thank you for your quick responses to my questions. Another one: When opening posts it seems to be delay in loading Main Picture. Is there any way to speed it up? When opening posts regular inserted pictures load quickly, but the main picture takes time to appear. Thank you.

DigitalCavalry

Hello, the main image is being preloaded and a full image is displayed after it is fully loaded that’s why you can have this impression that it takes longer to load. I think this can be changed with a small change in the code, so it is possible to turn off the preloading for main image – I didn’t tested it heavily but I have a simple instruction for this, so you can send me an email using contact form in our Theme Forest profile and I will send it back to you if needed.

Hi, Just bought it, installing right now. Was wondering, is it ready for WPML?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, no, we didn’t tested it with WPML for this moment and I think it is not fully ready for WPML – I think it won’t work for the Pro Menu system without some adjustments, maybe for the WordPress menu option it will be easier. The Osaka theme is translation ready and the *.po files are included.

Hello, I have a question regarding the logo. I want it to be centered but want the text/social icons/search area to stay on the right. When i center the logo, all this “box” comes below the logo wich is not nice at all. Is there something to do?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, this is not possible to setup like you described or even make with some simple change in the code because of the responsive layout design that must work the same in all resolutions. Only with some bigger modification in the code it might be possible to achieve, but looks like this will need a completely rebuild of the header and it won’t be flexible. So I think this kind of layout on header can be done with some more complicated change in the CSS/PHP code, where you build the code for this specific header layout only.

Possible bug report with Google Fonts : Cannot use one of the alternative styles of a font, it seems to always use a bold version when you choose light. e.g. http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway will select ok but this http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway:300 uses Bold instead.

Tested on Firefox, IE9 and Safari (not chrome).

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Just tested this and works fine for me – tested in Chrome, IE9 and Firefox. I added 3 new Google fonts to the list in this way:

Raleway (normal 400)
'Raleway', sans-serif
http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway
Raleway (book 300)
'Raleway', sans-serif
http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway:300
Raleway (extra-bold 800)
'Raleway', sans-serif
http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway:800

And all the headings are displayed correctly, respectively as normal 400, book 300 or 800 semi-bold style. Maybe you defined something wrong when you were adding the font to the list, but works good when I test it like this.

I noticed that you can upload the CMS settings from another template onto the current site you’re working on. If I am developing a site (hidden on my personal server, just working on my own), and I get ready to transfer it over to the real home on a different server, can I just upload the CMS I worked on, and the post/pages I worked on and it be the same?

I tried something like this, but it wasn’t working, and I’m not sure how to exactly do it, or if I need to just start over and manually re-do everything the way I had it.

DigitalCavalry

You get this error when you try to import the ZIP on your other host? You try to eport/import from one server to another? The export option worked properly, with no problem? You can check what PHP version is set on your server – changing PHP version helped for one client earlier, so this might be the problem.

Default-user
skootz Purchased

I changed the PHP version from 5.2 to 5.3 to 5.4 and back, and same error message each time. The export worked fine as far as I know, and gave me the ZIP file, but it won’t upload on the new server.

DigitalCavalry

Did you checked if the export option works on the new server the same as on the other one? Maybe you can try this and make a test for export option on the new server if it will give you a ZIP file, looks like it is something else related to server settings.

Also, if possible, you can send us access to your WP admin on the server where it is not working – using contact form in our TF profile – and I will take a look on this.
