Hi,

I love this theme, but I’m having trouble with installation. The message says missing style sheet. I’ve tried installing both via FTP , and straight from Wordpress. :(

AndonDesign

Hi Melissa, thank you for registering with the theme’s Support Forum, I did answer your question there, but in case someone else has this same problem I’ll post it here as well.

it looks like you haven’t installed the theme properly.

You were supposed to unzip the initial zip file you downloaded after purchase onto your hard drive and then inside you would find Documentation and another zip file called ‘u-design.zip’ which is the actual theme. So in your case you most likely ended up with:

wp-content/themes/U-Design-WP-Theme/u-design/

and it SHOULD be:

wp-content/themes/u-design/

Super theme – three v. quick questions

1. Can the default dimensions of images on the blog page listing blog posts http://idesignmywebsite.com/u-design/?page_id=1154) be easily changed (currently they’re rectangular, we need them square – as in http://socialcommercetoday.com – for consistency?

2. Can the backgrounds on individual sliders be changed to create a full width effect (e.g. one with a black background, another with silver etc)

3. Can the front page be set to show latest posts under the header (so it effectively looks like http://idesignmywebsite.com/u-design/?page_id=1154 but with a slider above it?)

Thanks!

AndonDesign

Hi,

1 ) Yes you can give them any size, check the second page on the blog: http://idesignmywebsite.com/u-design/?page_id=1154%29&paged=2

2 ) You can setup any background image or color for the sliders background once, but you cannot specify it for each slide.

3 ) Yes you can, you can have any page, set up as Home page, so you can have the Blog page to be on the home page and it will be displayed underneath the slider.

You can also use the “U-Design: Recent Posts” widget as well

Thanks, just to clarify on 1) are these blog images “featured images” – i.e. auto-generated to be at dimensions we can define in admin – so I can upload any image and it will auto size and crop to defined dimensions, and position it correctly – i.e. it works as a featured image?

Thanks!

AndonDesign

You can have them autogenerated in which case they are fixed size, but that will be taken care for you. They are not Featured, instead you need to use a special custom field “post_image”.

Now, if you’d like to have some more freedom, then you can omit the custom field “post_image” and simply turn off the “Show Excerpt” mode. You can see this option under “Blog Section -> Show Excerpt” here: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/253220-udesign-wordpress-theme?index=1

In which case the blog post full content will be added to the Blog page, not just the excerpt. Then if you just want to show a teaser paragraph you can use the “more” tag to split the post.

Is there any way to add the cycle slider 4 to another page via short code or php?

Are we able to have multiple sliders for different pages?

AndonDesign

Hi,

it is possible but you’ll have to insert a piece of code in the ‘header.php’ file in which you specify the page id’s that you want the currently enabled slider to show up. It will have to be the same slider as the one you have on the home page. If you want a different one then additional code changes need to be make.

Please Help Me! I just purchased your U-Design theme, and after looking at hundreds of themse over the last 6 months, I finally settled on yours! I have never had a problem uploading a theme to WP before, but no matter what I do, whether it’s through my hosting account, files, back end, or through the WP uploader, your theme will not upload!

I extracted the zip file, followed all of your directions and after 2 hours, it is still NOT uploading. I keep getting strange error messages such as “are you sure you want to do this” on wp. I just paid for your theme and really need to get it installed. Can you please help me?

Thank you.

AndonDesign

Yes, absolutely, I will help you with this.

Please register on the support forum, do a quick post or copy/paste the one from here and I’ll give you more instructions.

Hope to see you there.

Can you provide the XML for your test content? Would be EXTREMELY helpful!

AndonDesign

I finished exporting an XML file and I have available for download at the theme’s support forum with instructions. You may know but the WP XML Export tool doesn’t export the Options as well as the theme’s settings and widgets so those you will have to create yourself. For that reason I have provided in the demo a page called “Get the code” where you can copy/paste the code used for the Home page layouts.

Hi.

This theme looks awesome and I will be seeing a client in the next day or two that I believe will suit his needs.

So, if I purchase the theme does it come with any sample data (xml file) so that I can play with it for them?

Thanks.

8-)

AndonDesign

Hi,

I just created an XML file, see the previous comment for details.

Keep in mind that the XML file doesn’t come with the images, so if you want to setup a demo for your client you will have to use your own images.

Hi. I purchased your great theme yesterday. My problem is very simple; show images in post template. Like my english is very poor, show my blog. If I set the plugin recent post, images show correctly, but page navy not show menus.

Buf. Could you add simple home page examples for blogs templates?

Grateful.

Hi! Awesome theme!

Do any of the the slider options allow me to have a video on a side and some text (or perhaps an optin form) on a side?

Thanks!

Calx

AndonDesign

Hi,

the cycle 3 slider which is the default in the demo give you the ability to add any content in a text layer. I’m talking about the Text that slides from right to left. You can paste your video code in it and format it with HTML . The other slider that allows video but only special format video is Piecemaker 2, you can see the Piecemaker 2 settings section in the Screenshot here: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/253220-udesign-wordpress-theme?index=1

2 quick questions:

can I adjust the height on the cycle 3 slider? (guessing no, but not sure)

Are there shortcodes that don’t work in the text widget immediately under the slider?

Thanks

AndonDesign

Hi,

I have just explained on the theme’s Support forum how to change the height of the Cycle 3 slider.

All shortcodes and widgets work in the Widget Area under the slider.

Very nice and clean looking. Is it possible set up the blog index page to use a featured image other than 575×200? In particular, using a right or left aligned square image is what I’m looking for.

I know the big, landscape ratios look terrific but they are pretty impractical for every day use.

AndonDesign

Hi,

yes, you can customize the image with inline post content, see the 2nd blog page: http://idesignmywebsite.com/u-design/?page_id=1154&paged=2

Hi, I don’t see any “filter” on portfolio page. Are you going to add it on next update? Thank you

AndonDesign

Hi,

by ‘filter’ do you mean sorting criteria of sort?

Regards

cyberone

Yes, to be able to sort the pictures by subject.

AndonDesign

Yes you can, I haven’t shown it in the demo, but if you have subcategories they’ll show on top and you can click each one to sort out by categories.

Hello internq7,

I’m ready to buy your U-Design template, but I have a (no-doubt totally beginner) question before i do. I’ve been looking at hundreds of templates and never seem to find exactly what I want, particularly in the dimensions of the top graphic. Is U-Design open to just about any tweak. If I want my site to have a large animation (most likely in Flash) going completely across the top, that’s do-able, right? I can fool around with the width of the columns, yes? I can use a plug-in so people who want to comment have to type in a pictured word (like on this site), yes?

This sounds like a do-it-yourself-the-way-you-want-to template so I’m not bound by someone else’s construction. Am I correct in this assumption? Hope so.

Thanks so much for replying to this.

from Freaky Dude

AndonDesign

Hi Freaky Dude,

thanks for your interest!

You are correct that this theme is built to help you grow your imagination and not suppress it.

Regarding having a large animation across the top, I assume you mean in the place of the logo, search and phone number area above the menu, right?? That shouldn’t be a problem, but you might need to insert your custom animation code in the ‘header.php’ file so you need to know some php and HTML , but I can help you with that. If it’s a background image then you don’t have any restrictions in terms of size, if it’s going to be a movie of some sort then you are limited to 940px width of the site.

And yes, for the comments, you can install a Recaptcha plugin if you’d like.

If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Regards
