Dear xxcriversxx,

I have bought the birthday bundle from envato including your Sweet Pea template which is great but I need to get the demo for start as I am not very aknowledged with Concrete5 and it would be much easier to have your demo running and change it to my needs. Is there any manual how to create the exact demo?

Thank you very much. SpideyCZ

xxcriversxx

Hello SpideyCZ,

Unfortunately I’ve been told by Envato not to support users of the birthday bundle. However I believe in supporting all users so I will be glad to help however you are using the previous version of the theme which we no longer support. Get the latest version of Sweetpea and I will be glad to assist you.

Thanks, xxcriversxx

Great template! My client is extremely happy with his site.

I’d like to add more then five pages to the main navigation, or at the very least remove “Home” and add another page.

When I exclude the home page from the main nav, it disappears, but won’t allow me to add another page.

Any suggestions? Here’s the site: http://www.agavetacobar.com

Hello tbock7117,

I will be glad to help you with this. Ok you can add as many items as you want to the navigation menu however we recommend limiting to the amount in the demo for stylistic reasons. However you do have free rain to make it look anyway you’d like using css. Please send me an email so I can explain further.

Thanks, xxcriversxx

I’m trying to change the background color on the “Template Two Column” page type. Currently it is white, but I can’t figure out where in the CSS this is. Any help is appreciated!

Hello,

I do not recommend modifying the core stylesheet of the theme. Instead, create a new stylesheet of your own and simply override my styles. This is the beauty of CSS . This allows you to modify the site without touching my core files. But its up to you.

You can find the styles on line 251—look for the following: ”#middle .slide.about-layout”

I hope this helps, xxcriversxx

Hello Chris, it’s been nearly a week, i really need to finish this website. Could you please have a look?

xxcriversxx

See email.

Just purchased the HTML theme, it looks great! Could you tell me which font is the one used for the “Sweet Pea” logo?

Thanks in advance!

xxcriversxx

Hello,

Yes absolutely, the logo font is “Ballpark Weiner”.

Enjoy! xxcriversxx

Hi xxcriversxx, Nice design on the SweetPea. I’m having a problem with the theme and the db (Concrete 5_9)...after selecting Sweetpea as the new theme I get this:

"mysql error: [1146: Table 'Concrete5_9.pkgThemeSweetpea' doesn't exist] in EXECUTE("SELECT * FROM pkgThemeSweetpea")"

All the other themes (C5 defaults) work fine and so does 3rd party add-on packages that I tried. Any ideas?

Thanks!

xxcriversxx

webjack,

Thats a strange issue. Please send me an email so I can look into this further. I’m going to require login access as well. Also please restate your issue so I know what to do.

Thanks, xxcriversxx

SweetPea is a nice theme. However, the idea I will quickly build & deploy CMS Concrete5 with SweetPea was totally wrong.

xxcriversxx

qpartner,

I beg to differ, its a pretty simple CMS to work with. Are you currently interested in purchasing? I will be glad to give you a demo before your purchase to show you.

Thanks, xxcriversxx

Hi! Got your theme from the birthday bundle, so no support for that but still can you please tell me why i cannot upload the theme (I am trying to upload the theme folder via filezilla with no luck so far). Template is missing i sthe message i get/ Thanks in advance!

xxcriversxx

aravena,

Yes, I will be glad to assist you anyway. You need to make sure you are installing this as a package and not a theme. In other words, make sure you put the contents of this theme in the packages directory at the root of your project.

Once this has been complete, navigate to the “extend concrete” section of the cms(/dashboard/extend/install/). Here, you will find a install button that will install the theme and all modules that have been included. It’s super simple.

I hope this helps! xxcriversxx

HI, I’m having trouble making the template work. i’ve uploaded it but i only get one block area (logo) to edit content. What i assume i’m missing is the BLOCK body … and there are no edits to add the paralax images? I’m guessing i’ve missed a step of am missing something . can you please point me in the right direction.

I’ve installed as a package and it all looks ok

xxcriversxx

Hello. Great theme.

I am having difficulty installing the blocks for the Instagram fancybox for concrete 5…

it does not show in the block types list or when I try to install as an addon – cannot see it anywhere, I have also purchased it again for $5 .. which might have been pointless? its not anywhere to be seen – how do I get this working?

I read the instructions indicated in your documentation, but to no avail.

Please advise, as I am without a gallery.

Cheers

G

xxcriversxx

Hello,

I can definitely help you with this. First off, are you able to install any blocks?

xxcriversxx

gaztag Purchased

Yes, but it says

No custom block types are awaiting installation.

..and I cannot see anything for Instagram in the Installed Block Types list .. ?

xxcriversxx

Hello,

I will be glad to get this sorted out for you. I’ve just test this on the 3 most recent version of concrete and was unable to simulate your issue. You must be doing something wrong on your end. Can you send me a login to your site so I can take a better look.

Thanks,

It was – but too late – have destroyed what I did before (lost 1.5 days work)

Now installing again – have literally just done (but now the change colour/theme drop down is not in ‘Manage’ – even though have used latest download

Any ideas on that one??

Why could it be absent

Hello Chris, I have been working on the Sweet Pea theme for quite a while (html version) but it never seems to work properly on mobile devices. How can I disable the responsive feature and have it just like on a regular browser version?

xxcriversxx

andrescuervo, It should work perfectly in mobile. What’s not working for you in mobile?

xxcriversxx

Hi Just purchased your theme and I have 3 minor issues other than that great theme.

1 How to change logo when you scroll down just like in your example?

2 Layout of the 2 column page is overlapping? Please have a look www.cafe82.com.au

3 Title for Galery and Menu is duplicated? Please have a look www.cafe82.com.au.

Also would you have buttons for google +

Regards

Alex

xxcriversxx

Thanks for the positive feedback! See below for comments on you issues.

1. The logo pulls from two separate images as you scroll. First, it is looking for two images. See the below to see how the CSS works.

#header .logo a {
    background: url("images/logo.png") no-repeat;
}

#header.minimized .logo a { background:url("images/logo-min.png") no-repeat; }

2. Looking at your site, it appears that you have two column 1’s somehow. Please try removing one of the first blocks. Also make sure you don’t have any mal formed html.

3. Once again, you have an extra content area. Mostlikely with no content in it. Please look in your editor and remove any blank h2 tags.

Hi, I’m having problems with the C5 install. Getting this message:

An unexpected error occurred. File /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/westminster/concrete/themes/theme_sweetpea/default.php not found. All themes need default.php and view.php files in them. Consult concrete5 documentation on how to create these files.

I put the files in the “Themes” folder then installed it through the Dashboard. Seems to be looking for default.php in the wrong place. Any ideas?

Thanks, Carlo

Hi! I have bought this theme but i am having the same problem someone else raised 7 months ago. Did you find a fix for it?

mysql error: [1146: Table ‘Concrete5_9.pkgThemeSweetpea’ doesn’t exist] in EXECUTE(“SELECT * FROM pkgThemeSweetpea. Copied from the other comment the only difference is my DB name is different.

Default-user

I’ll write a custom block to display an image gallery from the database, thats no problem. If you could get back to me about adding a navigation button that does not add a section to the home page but instead directs user to a new page that would be great. Could i alter the code stored in the db for the url link?

xxcriversxx

Yes this is definitely possible however I have not provided a way to control this in the CMS. I’ll add this functionality with the next version update available this week.

xxcriversxx

Ah fantastic! Looking forward to the update. I won’t try and ‘fudge’ it i’ll wait for it. Thanks a lot!!

Hi, I am interested in this theme but have a couple of questions please.

1. Is the home page full screen image a slider or can a fullscreen slider addon be used there.

2. I really like the way the nav moves from bottom to top in your EVERAFTER modern theme. Can this be achieved with the C5 Sweet Pea theme?

Thanks

xxcriversxx

Hello, I will be glad to assist you. See below for my comments.

1. No, the homepage fullscreen is not a slider. But I could add this in if you need it.

2. I’m not sure I understand your question here. Can you explain?

xxcriversxx

Hi, I’m very happy with the theme, except from one thing. It keeps deleting my content, every time I go to full sitemap and add a new page. Its pretty annoying that when I go back to the site, theres noting on either of my slides. Is there a bug or what’s happening?

xxcriversxx

I just took a look at your site and It is appearing to be responsive. However, many users prefer different customization for their sites. What in particular would you like changed?

xxcriversxx

Default-user

Hi again,

I just want it to look and work like the demo and it’s not at the moment! These issues are all related to the mobile version, so it’s a resizing problem I think.

This is not a customization issue and I’m shocked that you can’t see my point. I have already told you what I’m not happy with, but I’ll do it again.

The background images on slide/page 1, 3, 5 + 7 are not resized on a mobile phone, they are cropped!

The headings (h2) on slide/page 2, 4 and 6 are not resized. They are way too big for mobile and nothing like the demo.

Same goes for the list text (li) on my exhibitions slide/page. It’s not resizing like on the demo.

On the demo everything is nicely aligned in the middle (logo, menu, gallery and contact page). It is NOT on my page.

When I use the menu to navigate, the gallery and contact page don’t come up all the way, I have too scroll to get the last bit (too much space in top maybe).

All of these things work in your demo, and all I’m asking for here, is for the product I bought to work according to the demo version I have seen.

Furthermore I would like to add a gallery (not Instagram) and all the gallery’s I have tried won’t work with your template. Do you know of a gallery that will work (be responsive in your template).

Thanks

xxcriversxx

It’s unfortunate that you are experiencing these issues. It is a lot harder for me to assist you without a link. I assure you that the version of the theme used in the demo is the exact same thing as what you have. There must be something wrong with your implementation because no other user has had this issue before. Take a look at the error console in either firefox or chrome to see if anything red shows up.

xxcriversxx

Hello,

Great template but I am struggling with it. The menu items do not link to anywhere and how do you get each page scrolling up etc?

Also adding an image to the Intro Background just adds an image block, I dont really follow your documentation. Is there a tutorial that talks you through how you built the demo site?

My site is bare bones just now at www.laclinichamilton.co.uk

Kind regards Scooter
