Hey, I could use some help.

I just discovered that the social icons don’t work anymore. Don’t know what I did but it seems like it can’t fetch the images.

Do you have any idea what I did wrong or what I could do to fix this?

PS: I moved my website to another domain, could be that this is the cause though everything els works perfectly.

Thanks for your time!

WPExplorer

Hi there,

It’s possible moving them could have caused the issue. Can you check the URL’s for the icon images in your theme options?

If you want to send us your logins so we can have a look, we would be happy to help out. Simply PM us via our profile page – http://themeforest.net/user/WPExplorer

Hello, Will thunder theme allow subscribers to post media only, without my supervision? The Idea is to create a membership site which will allow the members, depending on their subscription level, to post pictures of items, such motorcycles etc, then if you are a subscriber you will have access to contact information. I plan to use the Restrict Content Pro plugin for the membership part.

WPExplorer

Hi Jorge,

The theme itself wouldn’t allow for subscribers to post anything, this would have to be added via a 3rd party plugin.

Restrict Content Pro is a good plugin, we use it on WPExplorer ;)

Update Plugin WPBakery Visual Composer Hi, I’m getting the notification that I can update the plugin from version 3.6.13 to version 3.6.14.1. However, the update always fails. It says that the update package is not available. I can’t download the update from the plugin site either, since it needs to be purchased. Is the Visual Composer license, which is included in the Thunder theme license only for that particular version 3.6.13, or am I missing something?

Michael

WPExplorer

Hi Michael,

Because the plugin is bundled with the theme you technically do not have a purchase code for the plugin. This means you would need to purchase if you want the automatic updates.

Generally though we update the theme everytime there is an update, if you download the latest version of the theme you should fine the plugin inside the theme’s “plugins” folder.

Or you can PM us and I can email you the latest version of the plugin.

So to answer your question…You do receive updates for the plugin, but from us, not via the auto updater (unless you purchase the plugin, which might be worth it for the price).

Hi,

Still having problems with the “touch-image on tablets” so I checked it with your preview theme and I have the same result.

Could you try the following test on your live preview please: -open the live preview of the thunder theme -touch one of the portfolio-images -portfolio page will open with related portfolio’s -touch one of the related portfolio’s.

This touch will work in the chrome-browser, but in the samsung-browser it will work only sometimes.

Could you give me some feedback on this and why this is happening.

greetings,

Christophe www.fermeduchateau.be

WPExplorer

Hi Christophe,

So the issue is with the samsung browser only and only on the related items? not on the main archive?

Hello,

Thank you for this awesome theme. The admin menu allow to customize the footer in 1, 2, 3 ou 4 colums, and that’s it. Is there any way to customize the footer in 5 colums? How can I do that?

I’ve tried to see with firebug and I found this:

div class=”footer-box span_1_of_5 col col-1”>

I thought I need to changed in col col-5, and it works. But I can’t find the right file in the theme to change it.

How can I do this please?

Thanks

WPExplorer

Hi there,

If you open footer.php you can change where it says:

wpex_grid_class(wpex_get_data('footer_col','3'))

To say:

wpex_grid_class('5')

For each of the divs.

But because you are adding another column you would also have to add a new div for the 5th column as well as register a new widgetized area – http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_sidebar

Thanks a lot! It works.

Hello, Is there a way to put some full width background only into some part of a page (not the full page)(like the background you added for the call-out) under text and images from the visual composer? I’ve tried your shortcode bg area but it’s only boxed. And if I select the full width on my page, it’s all the page (and the content) Plus I realy need the visual composer for some part of my website

If it’s not possible from the visual composer, how can I add it please?

Thanks

WPExplorer

You would have to use the full width template. Then to center elements you don’t want full-width what you can do is create a row inside a row with the Visual Composer, anything added inside his 2nd row should be centered. As you see here: http://wpexplorer-demos.com/thunder/homepage-composer-3/

If you want the code for that page so you can replicate it, just let me know so you don’t have to import sample data just for that.

Default-user

Hi thank you so much for you answer. Yes I would like the code for this please.

WPExplorer

Have a look here: http://pastebin.com/fVmSEysU

Make sure to insert this in “text” view: http://cl.ly/image/0b292n3t112V

Default-user

Ok thank you so much! It works fine!

It creates a full background with a sentence to write on it. But I would like to insert blocs (from visual composer: differents text blocs and images on a specific structure) and not just a sentence, ON this background area.

Is that possible? How can I do this?

WPExplorer

Unfortunately I’m not quite sure if you would be able to do that at the moment. I have been encouraging the developer of the Visual Composer to add background settings to the “rows” so you can easily do what you are asking. But he hasn’t given me an ETA.

I wouldn’t mind going in and adding the settings directly to the theme in the next update, but it wouldn’t be for at least a few days before I have the time to make this fairly large edit.

If you have time to wait you can contact me via my profile page and let us know what you need and we’ll add it to the list of updates to do next. Or if you know your way around the code you can extend the plugin yourself – http://kb.wpbakery.com/index.php?title=Extend_Visual_Composer

Default-user

Hello, No, I can’t do this by my own, I’m not a developer. I’ve just send you a message by your profile and ask for this update. I really hope you guys can do this.

How long do you think it might be done? (I know this might be a lot of work)?

Thank you for your support!

WPExplorer

I’ll keep an eye out for the email so my support staff doesn’t respond and I’ll respond directly, it is quite a bit of work, but I think I can definitely get it done by this weekend the latest.

Default-user

Wow, this is fast. It would be awesome if you could do this! I really appreciate your support and help. Thanks a lot for this!!

WPExplorer

I see someone got your email and they have forwarded to me. I hope to get this done soon, because its definitely a very very useful update that many would like to have.

Thank you for your politeness and patience!

Hi AJ,

Got the theme installed but I’ve yet to begin to customize it. It works well on Safari but on FireFox I can work in the admin panel but when I go to the site I get “Sorry, that page couldn’t be found”. All my permalinks are correct so not sure what it causing the issue. Any ideas or will you need access to the site?

Thanks, Peter

WPExplorer

Hi Peter,

If you are having 404 errors it shouldn’t be browser dependent because they are un-related. Try clearing your site/browser cache, maybe your site is cached in Firefox.

Default-user

Hi Aj,

I wrote this ticket at 5:00 am after a long night of working on the theme:-) Clearing the cache solved the problem.

I love this theme, but when viewing your demo site on IE8, i see a couple of problems:

1-THUNDER word in logo disapears 2-All portfolios become very slow and finally freeze. (only Portfolio Archive works, because it has no animation, i believe)

Is there a way to “correct” this issues in IE8?

I hope so, i want to buy this one!

WPExplorer

What windows version are you using, because we tested the theme in IE8 before release so there shouldn’t be any major issues like this.

Hello, First of all I want to say you guys are GREAT with support, thank you! I have having an issue with my drop-down menu that the drop down is in the slider on the homepage and into the content on the main pages. I was hoping it would be right below the menu item on the navigation. Is there something I am doing wrong? Thank you! http://jailhousestrong.com/

WPExplorer

By default the drop-down is under the height of the header – if you look at the default design – http://wpexplorer-demos.com/thunder/ – you’ll see that the purpose for doing that is that it matches up nicely under the header.

If you want to change the position it’s pretty easy, you just have to alter the CSS a bit…

example:

/*make the li elements in the header smaller*/
#navbar .dropdown-menu > li {
height: 50px !important;
line-height: 50px !important;
}
/*move the nav down a bit*/
.dropdown-menu {
margin-top: 40px;
}

That should get you started…edit accordingly.

Is there anyway to do some full screen elements in the home page content area? possibly a short code that opens a full screen area?

Thanks!

WPExplorer

Sorry I don’t quite understand. Do you mean lightbox? Like when you click an image and it opens a larger version? If you have a screenshot of an example maybe I can help point to the code to edit or a good plugin to use for this.

boomandhush

I figured it out! in the custom area in theme options, I have added a full width area.

Thank you!

Hi There,

I have some questions regarding my site. Basically when I add a new portfolio item with a gallery of pictures and then check on the item, the images in the gallery are all cut-off. I have both landscape and portrait full-quality photos that I’d like to be able to display fully, so what is the best workaround to do so?

Also, I can’t changed the header for each portfolio item, the tagline always says “Posts Under” up top.

Lastly, even though I’ve added two portfolio items now, both galleries, still nothing shows up on the main portfolio page. Isn’t it supposed to display all portfolio items? (I have the value set to -1 so I’m not sure why it isn’t).

I have maintenance mode activated on the site right now, but if you could let me know how I could reach you by email, I can give you an admin account login information so you can go in and check what’s going on. Please let me know!

Thanks,

HK

Hi there,

1. You are correct by default the images are cropped. In the theme options panel simply go to the “Image Sizes” tab and you can alter the cropping for any image. Simply change the height to “9999” of any image you don’t want cropped vertically and it will keep its proportions. If you set “9999” for the width as well, it will remove all cropping.

2. By default the portfolio items display their category at the top – http://wpexplorer-demos.com/thunder/portfolio/sunset-gallery/ – if you want to change that to something else you would have to edit single-portfolio.php or you can add the following custom CSS in your theme panel to hide it:

body.single-portfolio #page-header-description { display: none; }

Hello

I am having trouble with visual composer at only one of my pages. I used the function “Tour”. When I tried to edit the page, it has the “convert to new version” button floating at the visual composer window. I clicked it and nothing happened. Any idea how to fix this?

WPExplorer

The “convert” button is displayed if you had a page created without the composer before switching to it. Often the code won’t match the Visual Composer so nothing would happen.

If you want to send us your Logins and the URL in question we can help take a look.

Font size in menu. Hi AJ, I tried some different fonts for the menu, e.g. Amatic SC. The font turns out to be much smaller than the default font. I would need to individually increase this font size. I read your comment in http://themeforest.net/item/thunder-responsive-multipurpose-theme/discussion/5466969?page=5#comment_4712689. Will you include this option in your theme? I think it would be useful, like in the case with a font like mentioned above.

Michael

WPExplorer

Hi Michael,

At the moment I don’t have plans for an update but when I get a change I’ll definitely consider it. If you want some help with the CSS for the menu font size, just let me know..it’s a very simple edit.

Default-user

Hi AJ, yes it would be great to get the CSS code for the menu font size. I found that many google fonts show the same problem as they are way too small compared to the main font size.

In this regard I also have another question. How can I add additional fonts?

Michael

WPExplorer

Hi Michael,

Adding more fonts would be done by adding them to the array, see functions/google-fonts.php. The array is called “listgooglefontoptions”.

However, you can only add more Google fonts to this array. If there is any Google font missing, just tell me and I’ll add it ;)

If you want to add fonts from somewhere else you would have to use a 3rd party plugin or a service such as Typekit.

The CSS for the menu font size would be simple. Example:

/*give the main nav a font size of 16px*/
#navbar .dropdown-menu a { font-size: 16px; }
/*give the dropdowns a font size of 14px */
#navbar .dropdown-menu ul a { font-size: 14px; }

I’m having trouble with translation of text string in the theme options under home tab. They seem to get synchronized. If I change a text in one language the same text is saved in another language. I’m using WPML.

WPExplorer

I thought I had mentioned this in the admin panel, and sorry if I did not. Basically the admin settings are there for those that just need to change it but not have it translatable in multiple languages. If you are using WPML, leave the string options empty so then you can alter them by using their default values which should be in the .po/.mo files. This is especially important for the post type labels.

If you really want though, you can use the included WPML shortcode for some strings…example:

[symple_wpml lang="es"]Hola[/symple_wpml]

It depends what you are translating though, because some settings don’t support shortcodes. I would recommend what I mentioned first.

Hi AJ,

Would you mind telling me how to make the subtitle “our latest finding and adventure” as well as the breadcrumb appeared like in your blog demo site? I just moved my web to a new domain and it seems these things got left out. Your help is much appreciated.

WPExplorer

Hi,

1. For the page subheadings use the “excerpt” field for your page.

2. For the breadcrumbs, this theme supports the breadcrumbs from Yoast SEO, so the only way to add them is via that plugin. Which is the plugin I would recommend anyone to use for the SEO efforts anyway ;)

Default-user

Yup you are correct, thank you for this

Is it possible to have text instead of an image for portfolio items. Lets say you wanted to showcase a portfolio of poetry. You select a featured image for the home page – but on the actual portfolio item page, instead of having a large image, you had just text.

is that possible?

WPExplorer
On the single post? There is an option to disable the featured image on a per post basis, just use that. http://cl.ly/image/1d0G0h2k3h1J

hey that gets me close! now which file should I edit to make the right column extend all the way across the page – and basically take the place of the image….

WPExplorer

You don’t have to edit any. If you notice that same screenshot, there is a layout option. Just set the layout to “full-width” as I have done.

Hi. This theme is just great! I love it.

I have some pre-purchase questions:

1. I bought a theme last month that didn’t support child themes. This theme support child themes, right?

2. I love the FAQ page. Would it be easy to remove the entry-dates under the questions by deleting some code?

3. On the iPhone, in the FAQ section, the index of questions is all the way at the bottom. Would simply placing the index in the first column (not the third) mean it would appear before the answers on iPhone?

Thanks very much!

WPExplorer

Great, I’m so glad you like it!

1. Yes you shouldn’t have any issues with child themes.

2. Very easy to remove, I can actually just give you some CSS to paste into your theme panel to hide them.

.faq-entry-date { display: none; }

3. Oh my, thanks for letting me know! The index is actually supposed to be hidden on the phone size. I’ll fix that up. But you are correct I should be able to fix the theme to make it appear at the top. If you purchase just send me a PM for the updated files. I’ll get to work on that ;) Thank you for reporting that issue!

WPExplorer

just fixed the FAQ, simple fix ;)

Great theme! A couple questions before purchasing:

Is it possible to center the logo easily?

Is it possible to create multiple portfolios, each with galleries that can be navigated with thumbnails?

Thanks!

WPExplorer

1. If by “easy” you mean via a theme option, then no. If you mean is the CSS customization easy, then yes its not very hard. You just have to remove the fixed height of the header, center the logo and then move the navigation wherever you want it. So in terms of ease, it depends on your CSS skills or if you are willing to pay someone to help then its probably very easy ;)

2. The portfolio is a custom post type that allows for categories, so to create multiple you can simply organize your items into categories.

Default-user

Thanks for your very quick reply!

Re: #2 is it possible to create galleries that can be navigated with thumbnails?

THanks!

WPExplorer

Not quite sure what you mean “navigated with thumbnails”.
