Now that Total 2.0 is out (congrats!), do you have an ETA on the “massive” Thunder update that brings WooCommerce 2.3 compatibility?

WPExplorer

Ha ;)

We’ll I haven’t begun working on it, but hopefully I can get to it next week, I spent 4 whole days on WooCommerce for Total, hopefully it doesn’t take me so long for Thunder.

Have you considered Total at all? I think you would be pleasantly surprised by how awesome it is.

I’d be happy to use Total if starting from scratch, but the truth is I’m perfectly happy with Thunder. If I switched, I would just recreate my current design which feels like a waste of time.

WPExplorer

Totally understand. Hopefully I can get that update out asap.

Hello!

Been on your theme for a number of months now and doing a website update. Looking to add a hover version of the .logo img div for my header. Any recommendations on how best to add this in? Custom image.

Thanks

WPExplorer

You will need to use javascript to add a hover to your logo image. This would be done via a child theme or a custom javascript plugin.

I’d like to update visual composer. Is there somewhere I can go to download the latest version?

Likewise, is there an easy way to keep track of when included plug-ins have new versions (other than buying these outright)?

WPExplorer

I will be updating this theme with the latest version in the near future as well as creating a changelog similar to the one for my Total theme so you can keep track of the version numbers – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/changelog/

One of my customers purchased this theme and we are in the middle of almost finishing her website. So, you aren’t going to support it anymore? What are we to do? :S

WPExplorer

I will continue answering questions and making small updates but nothing major. Either way, your customer is the only one with access to support and updates since they are the ones that purchased the theme.

Default-user

Yes, I’ll have them contact you should we need anything. Thanks.

How do I make the items in my Homepage Layout Manager appear on my homepage ? For e.g. I have added new items in Features but they don’t appear on my home page even though Features is there in my layout manager.

WPExplorer

If you want to use the built-in homepage manager you would have to create a standard page using the homepage template then to go Settings->Reading and define that page template for your front page.

How do I create an image carousel ? Also, how do I nest things inside columns? I can see button to add row in the visual composer but no option to add columns inside a row.

HELP! I messed something up! I was just browsing through my WP backend and deleted a Page that I didn’t think i needed called HOME (because i’m using a different custom page for my custom backend called homepagecustom1).

but clearly that was important because now my page redirects from the original homepage of gnarbox.com to “recent posts”.

Where in the settings do I repoint it?!

WPExplorer

You can just create a new page and select the homepage template. Then go to Settings->Reading to re-point your site to the homepage template.

Hi,

Could you please let me know how to have multiple columns in a row ? In the visual composer I can only see option to add a row. If I add two things to a row they form separate rows instead of columns. Please help.

Hello,

Im using the Thunder template and I’m having some difficulties. This is my very first time building a website so please be understanding.

1. I’m attempting to add text to my pages but the words are showing up vertically on the left side of the page. I also don’t know how to get rid of the text on the right side of each page that says “recent comments, archives, categories, etc” which also shows vertically.

2. I wanted to know if there is a way to add text to the top bar on the left instead of a menu so I can provide an easy to view support number.

3. How do I increase the font size on my menu tabs?

I really appreciate any and all help

Hello,

I’m using Layer Slider for my slider. When I preview the slider, the text doesn’t reflect whats on the actual site such as the text, boldness and size. How do I fix this so the preview looks exactly like how I would like my website to look like?

So far I’m loving the Thunder theme. I’m having trouble embedding a youtube video on one of my pages. After I paste the embed code into the “text” in the Edit Text Block and select preview, I just shows a blank spot in the place where the video should be

How do I upgrade the theme? I currently have Version: 1.31 and would like to upgrade to the latest version which is Version: 1.9. I have downloaded the latest theme files from Themeforest. I’m using a child theme with custom settings. Do I just upload via FTP the latest parent theme files and overwrite the current parent theme files? Also, my parent theme folder is titled “wpex-thunder” but the latest theme folder is titled “thunder”. How do I address that difference?

Lastly, when editing in the Visual Composer mode, I can’t see anything. I have to switch to the Text tab in the editing window to see the html code and edit that way. There is no WYSIWYG toolbar option anymore. Is there a plugin update that is needed? I’m running the latest WordPress version 4.1.

Just following up. I noticed in the comments that you are about to release the final theme update, version 2. Should I wait until you release that update and then update my theme from its current version 1.31 or is it better to update to v1.9 and then v2?

Hello. I very much need the update for Revolution Slider (4.6.9) to fix a bug with the static layers disappearing. Can you provide the files for a manual update? or push trough Thunder? or let me know how to do on my own??

THanks!

Hi – We used the full width Layer Slider with the Thunder Theme on this site (http://www.xgolfschool.com/), but it doesn’t seem to be working on the Shop page for that theme. I added the slider’s shortcode to the “Main Slider” field for that page, and saved the page, but when I view the page, the slider doesn’t show up. Am I missing a step? What do I need to do to get this slider to appear on the Thunder Theme shop page at the top of the page? Thanks for your time and help!

Default-user

I don’t think I did it quite right, because it’s just displaying a white strip above the Products page title on the page: http://www.xgolfschool.com/shop/. Within the code you provided, do I need to post the shortcode or id number for the specific LayerSlider that needs to display on the shop page? Otherwise, I don’t know how that code will know how to find the right slider out of all the sliders we’re using on the entire website. Thanks again for your help!

Default-user

After messing around with the page-slider.php and woocommerce.php files, I did manage to get it to display a slider on the shop page, but it was the wrong slider. It seemed to automatically grab the home page slider, which is not the one I want. I’m looking for my shop page slider, which has a layerslider id of 15. Is there a place within the code that you provided that will allow me to specify which slider I want to show up on the shop page?

I also noticed that it added some padding around it. We were looking for something that would be flush against the header, such as seen on your main shop page of your demo, where it says “Save Big” and has the image of the guy’s torso in a t-shirt: http://themeforest.net/item/thunder-responsive-multipurpose-theme/full_screen_preview/5466969

Hi—it’s been a few days but I haven’t heard back yet and my client needs his banner/slider added to the shop page as soon as possible. If you could respond, we really appreciate it. Thanks so much for your time!

After upgrading to WP 4.2 or 4.2.1, all feature images are broken on Thunder. If I revert to my previous install, everything is fine. As soon as I upgrade to either 4.2 or 4.2.1, broken feature images. This includes anywhere a featured image is used (blog page, lists of posts, single page, etc.)

double post, sorry!

Hi again—I haven’t heard back from you yet re: the follow-up question above, about adding a specific banner/slider to the shop page, but in the meantime I also wanted to ask you this:

Since you say you’re not going to be supporting the Thunder theme much longer, you recommend people purchasing your new Total theme. My question is this—how complicated an upgrade would it be, to go from a website using the Thunder theme to a website using the Total theme? Would a lot of the Thunder theme site transfer over without too much change? Or would we need to go in and tweak all the pages? Or would it be even more in-depth of an overhaul going from one theme to the other, and we’ll need to go in and redo all the pages and content? Do certain elements stay the same because of the Visual Composer, or will they not transfer properly with a simple theme activation to the new theme?

Basically put, how much work will need to be put into transferring our site from your Thunder theme to your Total theme? That will give us an idea of what we need to do and when/if we’re ready to make such a change.

This is the client site in question: http://www.xgolfschool.com/

Thanks for your time and help.

Did you have a chance to look over this question? It’s been almost a week, and I need to be able to tell my client something so that he can decide whether he wants to upgrade to the Total theme or keep using Thunder, or try a theme from another company entirely if we can’t get support. Please let us know whatever you can about our questions above. Thank you very much for your time and help!

Hi I installed the theme here: http://vital-ion.com.tw/new

I used LayerSlider there, just wondering how can I resize the slides? Thanks.
