This morning while working on a site design, I refreshed my page and got the following warning:

"Your page layout was created with previous Visual Composer version. Before converting your layout to the new version, make sure to read this page." [ Convert to new version ]

Will there be a theme update that includes the new 4.1.1.1 version?

If so, please hurry… the old version is now a BIG mess.

Thank you!

Hi,
(Sorry this is canned reply, due to big amount of same question that were answered before.)

We released v.4.1.1. of The7 on April 19, that solved most of issues with WP 3.9.

At this moment we’re working on another theme update that will solve remaining issues with Visual Composer (broken “Button 2”) and main navigation (when “#” is present in URL). It will be (hopefully) submitted to ThemeForest within 24h.(We’re still waiting for newer version of Visual Composer to be released. Until them there’s no sense in releasing update.)

Thank you so much for patience and understanding!

I had no idea there was an updated download on the 19th. Thanks very much for the information. I will download the theme again and see if it makes any difference.

Unfortunately I do have the latest version of the theme. Apparently there was a new version on the visual composer just released yesterday (4/20)... Is this what you’ve been waiting for?

In the main menu, the menu items defined as URL with ”#” keep selected. Please look at this picture. http://take.ms/OogJZ

While I updated the theme with 4.1.1 on WP3.9, this problem is not resolved.

Regarding LayerSlider contents. I clicked “Choose File” button on Import Sliders in LayerSlider setting in order to import LayerSlide demo content, and chose file of “LayerSider_ALL_SLIDERS_IN_ONE.zip”. But it fails to upload the file as slider. Actually nothing happened. How can I upload the file as slider?

It happened the demo content is zipped by php ZipArchieve (not by regular zip compression). My php version is too low to read the zip file made by php ZipArchieve. So I decompressed the zip files and re-compressed using regular zip compression method. Then it becomes importable.

It is resolved to me but please making zip file using regular zip compression method (not to use php ZipArchieve which makes error when user uses lower version of php) in future release.

Hey guys,
As you know, we released v.4.1.1. of The7 on April 19, that solved most of issues with WP 3.9. Nevertheless, some of them remained unsolved.

It will be (hopefully) submitted to ThemeForest within 24h. We’re still waiting for newer version of Visual Composer to be released. Until them there’s no sense in releasing update.

Hi, I’d like to change the initial page loading animation (spinning icon). is there any option for that?

Dream-Theme

Hi,
This can be done in CSS . If you are familiar with it, you can use FireBug (FireFox plugin for web-developers) or Chrome web developers tools to define which style should be changed and where. Here’s an awesome screencast by WooThemes on how to use it: http://vimeo.com/20917974 . Otherwise please consider hiring an experienced developer/freelancer to assist with it.

Hi,

I’m thinking about purchasing this theme but is there any way to change the size of the icons? I really like the vectors of the icons that are built in and want to use them instead of some pictures for social icons. Looking at the features in your demo there only seems to be one size.

Thanks

Dream-Theme

Hi,
We’re talking about “social icons”, right? Their size can be tweaked by writing bit of custom CSS for it.

Hi, Nice theme :)
I have few pre-sales queries

1. Does it have Masonry layout for blog

2. Does it have subscribe to Rss feed feature. If not, do you recommend any plugin which will be compatible with the theme.

3. Does it have social counters also to display. Means, how many likes, tweets we have on specific page and on site.


5. Can we make blog page as default home page (landing page) and can we show slider on top also (below main menu and above posts).

Your positive and favourable response is appreciable, as these points are the only reasons which would help me to initiate for buying for our client requirements

Thanks :)

Dream-Theme

Hi,
1. Yes. E.g. here: http://demos.the7.dream-demo.com/main/blog-news/blog-masonry/

2. All RSS stuff is standard WordPress. As I know it exports blog entries.

3. Not as standard feature. But there are various plugins available for that.

4. Cannot see the question :(

5. Yes.

Hi, I’m having problems setting the homepage’s title. This site is using a landing page as the home page.

I am using All-in-One SEO Pack as you suggest.

The title is being displayed as the site’s Wordpress General Settings’ “Site Title | Tagline” no matter what I do.

In the All-in-One SEO Pack settings, I’ve forced the homepage title and description, but only the description works.

In the landing page’s page settings, I’ve also forced the title and meta description.

Something is overriding this, and using the Site Title | Tagline instead. Do you have a proper configuration for All-in-One to work on the homepage?

Thanks! Mike

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Have you tried to set the title in “WP-admin > Settings > General” There’s good chance that it overwrites settings of All-in-One SEO (or SEO by Yoast)

Default-user

Yeah, that actually works, but I don’t like having the site name be something so long. I’m wondering why the General Site Settings is overwriting all of this! I thought the SEO Packs should.

Where is the title getting set on the homepage if using a landing page / microsite as the homepage? I might want to look at having my child theme run this one

Thanks! Mike

Dream-Theme

Theme is not altering standard WordPress or SEO plugins behavior. So you can expect titles to work as in standard WP theme(s).

Default-user

Hi, I just filed a support request. When I deactivate the theme and use twentyfourteen, All-in-One SEO does in fact work. When I turn the7 back on, it stops working. Are you sure you’re not doing something with the titles that would make it use WordPress’s settings instead?

Thanks, Mike

Default-user

Looks like presscore_blog_title is the culprit:

/**
 * Display blog title.
 *
 */
function presscore_blog_title() {
    $wp_title = wp_title('', false);
    $title = get_bloginfo('name') . ' | ';
    $title .= (is_front_page()) ? get_bloginfo('description') : $wp_title;
}
return apply_filters( 'presscore_blog_title', $title, $wp_title );

Why does this function exist??? It seems counterproductive. How do I permanently disable it?

Hi Guys, I just upgraded to Wordpress 3.9 and the theme was working fine.. however I decided to also upgrade the theme (seemed like a good thing to do at this point) however I now have white screen of death on all pages.

Is this a known issue? Please can you help?

I would like to weigh in with my two cents that the search button should be in the floating menu – or at least an option.

The reason is because people scroll down. read a little, and THEN they realize that they haven’t found what they need and want to search.

At that point, they’ve scrolled down, and the search is gone. So it’d be nice to have the search in the floating header menu.

Thanks! Mike

Still would like to see an option for changing the color of either the scroll nav bar background or the font colors. If I have a white or light color header and black nav bar with white fonts it does not show up in the scroll menu bar :(

In Theme Options I’m getting a message: Failed to create customization .CSS file. To improve your site performance, please check whether “…/wp-content/uploads/” folder is created, and its CHMOD is set to 777.

The permissions and owner:group are correct and even with 777 the custom-xxxx.css is not created in the /uploads/wp-less/xxx/css folder. The css file is imported inline in the header and the response time is huge. Also the css values are stored in the DB, is this ok in terms of performance?

I’ve noticed that one of the recent updates has effected the mobile menu, such that the “back” button doesn’t work, if you try to return from a submenu to the main menu. (using iPhone)

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Hi,

Is there any options to change the default size of benefits buttons? Not only the radius (that in fact, I like more the circle bottom), The default size looks like this: http://transglobalperu.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/transglobal-benefits.png .

But I would like to customize the size of the button like this example: http://transglobalperu.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/circle-with-background.png ....

And I’m sure all your costumers would be appreciate if your team can add an option to set the appeareance of benefits with a “Circle outline” to look more like the iOS7 style… Something like this: http://transglobalperu.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/outline-circleeee.png

Thank you and sorry for my english!

Hello:) Why dont you just fix it? Its ferified that files are corupted. Just re-upload the files please:)

Dream-Theme

Because it’s not broken. We imported files you are talking about many times and it all works fine. Probably there’s some sort of server issue on your side: something wrong with gzip compression library or something else.
