Hello. Great theme.

How can I add a phone number to the header? Thank you.

WPExplorer

There isn’t any option built-in for this. You would have to add your code manually to header.php. My suggestion would be maybe to add it in the top bar, either instead of the links on the left or the top bar search field.

Silly me updated wordpress to 3.7 before I tried to install this theme. Will you release a version that supports wordpress 3.7 soon or can you direct me to a FAQ the will shoe me how to revert to 3.6?

WPExplorer

This theme should work perfectly fine with WP 3.7. Are you getting any sort of warning?

It won’t let me install with the error

I have solved the problem. I ended up uploading the wpex-thunder.zip file inside the Thunder-1.22/upload directory and uploading it to my wp-content/themes/ directory. After extracting the files into that folder I was able to activate the theme. The YouTube video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad7D4G4xMXc&feature=share&list=PLHWJAqf5oydTi1LKOx73dK1VWCTlabxQC was extremely helpful.

I also modified the permission on the files with chmod -R 755 so the files were not insecure.

WPExplorer

Great, glad you got it figured out!

Generally that error ““Are you sure you want to do this?” is caused on your server if the php memory limit is not high enough. This is a large theme so some people do receive the error.

Installing via FTP as you did is the best way ;)

But just so you know to increase your memory limit you do it like this – http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

Thanks! I increased the memory and modified my php.ini max_upload_size to 25MB and it allowed me to upload the theme inside wordpress.

I just want to let all of you thinking about purchasing the Thunder Theme that you will get exceptional customer service from WPExplorer. AJ stands behind his product and is truly concerned about all of his customers!

WPExplorer

Thanks for taking the time to leave such kind words ;)

Well deserved AJ!

Hello! Really like this theme. For some reason, though, none of the links on the staff page are working. We see the staff photos and excerpts, but none of them link to that staffer’s page. We changed the name of “staff” to “team” following your documentation. Did that mess something up?

WPExplorer

You didn’t mess anything up. Simply go into the theme panel and under the staff tab enable the option that says “Link Staff Entries To Staff Posts”.

Hi I love this theme! I am using it for a client. They would really like a detailed portfolio on the Front or home page- Do you have a CSS code that would enable me to do that so I can allow writing UNDER each Portfolio box?

Thanks so much! Best, Lexi

WPExplorer

Hi Lexi,

Glad to hear that ;)

Are you using the built-in homepage or did you create a homepage layout using the Visual Composer drag/drop plugin?

If you are using the built-in homepage, the only way would be maybe using the symple_grid shortcode that comes with the symple shortcodes plugin…example:

[symple_posts_grid unique_id="" post_type="portfolio" taxonomy="" term_slug="" count="12" columns="4" pagination="false" order="DESC" orderby="date" thumbnail_link="post" img_crop="true" img_height="9999" img_width="9999" title="true" excerpt="true" excerpt_length="11" read_more="true"]

That would be added within a custom module.

Otherwise, if using the Visual Composer you would just use the grid module and add it to the page ;)

Just purchased Thunder theme but cannot install. The WP upload comes back with question “Are you shire you want to do this?’ and then ‘Try again”. That is all.

Can you help please?

Am I unable to use our logo? It appears that we can only edit the header with the default logo.

WPExplorer

You can upload your own custom logo at Appearance->Theme Options.

Hi, I’m a complete novice to building a WordPress web site or any site at all…. would you suggest that this Thunder theme is easy enough to use? or do I need some background knowledge of building web sites? I’m attempting to build one for my sport club. Thanks

WPExplorer

When purchasing any WordPress theme, you really should know how WordPress works. If you are new to website building and want a nice site for your club, might be best to hire someone to assist.

Hi, great theme, but a lot to learn to use it in a really good way. Does Thunder work in a multisite installation without problems?

Regards from Germany …

WPExplorer

Hi,

Yes you shouldn’t have any issues with a Multisite. All my theme demos are on 1 multi-site installation and I do all my coding locally on an MS install ;)

andreaswalter

Thanks. In the “home section” of “theme settings” I can change the background and text color for the “callout” section. What’s about the link color and the link hover color. And for the blog part on the homepage I am still searching for a way to modify text color as a first thing …

And, thank You for the great support you are giving here …

WPExplorer

Hi,

There aren’t any built-in color options for this area (if I added color options for absolutely everything the theme panel would be endless!).

To change the callout colors you would just add some custom CSS in the custom css field in the theme panel.

example:

/*make callout light gray with black text*/
.home-callout { background: #f5f5f5; color: #000; }

For links, you mean the overall links? There isn’t a built-in option for this especially because if there was it would override options everywhere (menus, footers, sidebars, meta..etc). So it’s not good to have. You can edit style.css and change it on lines 58-59:

body a { color: #f26c4f }
body a:hover { text-decoration: underline; color: #000; }

For the general text color, its the same as the links. You would want to edit style.css line 57:

body { background: #f1f1f1; nowhitespace: afterproperty; font: 16px/1.6 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color: #333; word-wrap: break-word; word-break: break-word; }

Change the #333 value.

Hope that helps!

andreaswalter

Thanks, I’ll give it a try. The point is, if You need the home page in a clear white style, you have to adopt the setting for background color, text, link and hover color to make it look really good. So, I guess, in the home section you need to have the possibility to change this. A nice feature to make things clearer or easier in the Theme Options is to have an “advanced mode” Button. It is like in the Styling ection, if you choose a predefined color schema, you don’t see the “advanced section”. Regards, andreasw.

WPExplorer

The thing is it’s not just background, color, text, link..It’s also all the available shortcodes and visual composer modules and widgets. It would add 100’s of lines of CSS to the theme and slow things down quite a bit.

ps: In the last update I added background options to the Visual Composer row, which might be useful to you ;)http://wpexplorer.org/changelogs/thunder/

Having just a slight issue with the navigation / header: http://dev(dot)defygimbal(dot)com/test-code/

you can see that the header only appears when you scroll down a few pixels.

Any ideas on how to solve?

THANKS!

WPExplorer

I’m not quite sure what the issue is. Do you now want to display the fixed header instantly after scrolling?

boomandhush

right when you visit the page the white bg in the navigation is not there. then if you scroll down just a tiny bit it appears… almost like a z-index problem, but I can’t pinpoint it.

WPExplorer

This is just the background for the sticky header, it’s not a problem, you just have to override the CSS if you don’t want that. The issue is when you scroll past that main image you have and the fixed header doesn’t have a background your links will get lost in the content.

I am having an issue that the symple shortcodes drop down is not showing up on the pages or post editing pages. I tried removing and re installing the plugin to no avail. Thank you in advance for your response.

WPExplorer

Please have a look at the yellow box notice here: http://www.wpexplorer.org/online-docs/thunder/#symple_shortcodes

I’ll be updating the theme later today though to add a new option for the Visual Composer and after that update this will change so you could see the icon ;)

Hi AJ,

I thought I’d try Visual Composer, but I’m getting strange results.

http://www.carsovercoffee.co.uk/test/

Even when I change this page to full width, the text overlaps the accordion width.

Any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong?

Jim

WPExplorer

Hi Jim,

It looks like you added a row inside the accordion. If there is a row inside a row it ads a fixed width (this is on purpose for other reasons).

You shouldn’t really need to add a row inside an accordion, you can just add a textwidget.

Either way, I am updating the theme a bit later today, so I’ll check it out just incase others do the same as you.

weepingtiger

OK, I see. I was trying to use columns within either an accordion or tabs, but I understand now. Cool, thanks again AJ.

WPExplorer

The latest update 1.3 has a fix for this as well ;)

Hi there! I’m enjoying this theme, thanks!

My site: http://www.buyingsellingmelbourne.com

I have a small blue Symple button on the home page. ‘contact peter’. I have taken the shortcode from this section and added it to the fourth widget column, in a text widget. But it has reduced in size. I can’t work out why it’s smaller. I would like the two buttons to look exactly the same.

Default-user

Actually, I think was able to make the button in the widget section bigger with a span style.

<p><span style="font-size: 1.1em;">[symple_button url="http://www.buyingsellingmelbourne.com/ask-a-real-estate-question/" title="Visit Site" color="blue" size="small" border_radius="3px" target="self" rel="none" icon_left="envelope-alt" icon_right="None"]Contact Peter[/symple_button]</span></p>
WPExplorer

Great!

ps: I noticed you are using the background shortcode quite a bit on the site (such as the buying property page). We just updated the theme to include background options directly on the “row” edit screen so you can do these backgrounds much easier – see the changelog: http://wpexplorer.org/changelogs/thunder/

Looking at the header we have a place for a logo (right), a (small) place for the blog tile (? doesn’t show up here). And there is the menu. The menu is always in the middle of ther header (height), regardless wether the header is 50px, 100px or 200px. Moving the menu to the buttom of the header (looks also be nicer with the menu dropdown)would give us space at the top of the Header (aligned right) for an additional Logo or slogan (blog title, company claim or whatever. Possible alternative would be to make the Top Bar sizeable and put header an claim there. In that case the header would be just for the menu. I know, we are talking about bells and whistles for a good product here, but these features für a more universal usage (remember me asking for a white hompage (text color and so on)) ... that is the challenge. And thunder has a more potential than 560 purchases ;-)

Hello, I enjoy working with the theme, thanks!

When I paste Google Analytics code in “Tracking” part of theme options, tracking code creates itself a new area in either header or footer and publicly and visibly displays the tracking code to everyone that visits the page. In my case, the tracking code creates a section after the footer ends. Here is the picture: http://i42.tinypic.com/11hgu3q.jpg

How can I resolve it?

Thanks!

WPExplorer

This is your tracking ID number, not the full code. The code should be javascript that looks more like this – http://john.do/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/google-analytics-code.png

not the posts, the forum

Hi AJ I noticed there is a new update. Would you advise how to update it safely?

WPExplorer

The easiest is to just override the files via FTP, but there is also a plugin you could use to make the update.
