Discussion on Uhuru - Responsive Multi-Purpose Concrete5 Theme

40 comments found

Hi, just installed Uhuru, it all makes sense so far and my site is starting to come to life quite quickly. I do have a question though, is it possible to change the colour of the main menu navigation bar? I know I can change the colour of the active menu items and the border etc I but can’t see how to change the bar itself. Thanks

Got it. Thank you! Sorry, last question – I promise : ) – On your live preview on themeforest, using an iPad the sub menu on the portfolio page works very well. It lets me click on the main menu ‘portfolio’ button and then the sub menu expands and I can then choose default, circular or rectangular. However on the site I’m building I cannot achieve the same effect. When I click on my main menu button (I’ve called ‘Services’) the sub menu shows up briefly but doesn’t allow me time to click on a sub menu item, it just navigates straight to my main menu ‘Services’ page. Hope this makes sense!

Well, hover events aren’t supported well on touch devices especially when it’s active link. In our demo we’ve used plugin “Page Redirect” and Portfolio page is redirecting to Portfolio -> Default when clicked, maybe that’s the case ;)

Thanks, will have a play around with that.

Hello, I am editing the defaults on my portfolio page. I am trying to edit the fancybox gallery to make the thumbnails 250 X 250. These changes don’t seem to reflect. On the site when you click the thumb the image that comes up is fine. But the thumb itself isn’t 250×250. It’s more like 250 h X 750 W and all pixelated. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks

I bought your theme, and is great tks! I’m having a question regarding the translation of the categories of the portfolio, I have 2 languages setup in my site, I can translate the ALL value thru the attribute, but no clue how to translate the values that I add to the categories (like Video, showcase, etc). Can you help me?

Hi, can i use your template without the concrete 5 platform? I would like to integrate it into an ASP.NET MVC application. Thank you for replying, Francesco.

DesignManiaThemes

Hello!

This theme is based on Concrete5 system so it won’t work without it and you’re not allowed to port it.

Greetings.

Hi, awesome theme! I have a little problem with the home page, i can’t remove the White space below the Sitewide Site Logo, as you can see at this link (http://www.francescopolita.it/home%20problem.png). Can you please help me? Thank you for replying, Francesco.

DesignManiaThemes

Hello.

For now simply go to theme customization and add this line to custom CSS: #logo img {margin:0;}

We’ll provide fix for this in future update.

Hi, thank you for the quick reply. I tried your suggestion but the result is always the same, as you can see at http://www.francescopolita.it/public_html/concrete5.6.3/concrete5.6.3 . Would you have any other suggestions?

Hi.

Could you provide us with access to admin area via hello@dm-themes.com. We’d like to see why custom CSS isn’t working (it should) and come back with working solution.

Best regards

EDIT

I see that image is wrapped with paragraph tag. Custom CSS worked as it should but all paragraphs has 24px bottom margin. My advice is to somehow remove paragraph or add another custom css: #logo p {margin: 0;)

Hi, i bought your theme with regular licence and installed it in my site. Now, can i uninstall the theme from my site and install it in another one? have i to buy another licence?

Thank for replying, Francesco.

DesignManiaThemes

Hello,

If it is still one site (remove old one, than build new one) you don’t have to buy another license. License says that you can build one End Product, but you can freely modify it, so propably you can just delete and start from scratch with another project. Details of your license you can find here: http://themeforest.net/licenses/regular with further questions about licensing, please ask ThemeForest directly.

Best regards.

great theme. but I have a small issue: on an iPad the submenus don’t open but the top-level menu href is fired. any idea how to fix this?

DesignManiaThemes

Hello.

Well, that’s probably due to hover event. Generally on mobile devices there is no such event as hover, there is just tap event. Problem is that modern touch devices has same resolution that desktops so it’s difficult to build suitable brakpoints and display proper menu. Sadly there is no super simple solution for this right now. Maybe we’ll try to figure something out in next update.

Greetings

Default-user

because I’m such a nice guy, here’s the solution:

in your autonav template uhuru_list add at the bottom

<script type=”text/javascript”> $(document).ready(function(){ $(‘li.has-submenu > a’).on(“touchstart”, function (e) { var link = $(this); //preselect the link if (link.hasClass(‘hover’)) { return true; } else { e.preventDefault(); $(’#main-menu’).find(‘li’).removeClass(‘sfHover’); $(’#main-menu’).find(’.has-submenu > ul’).css(‘display’,’none’); link.addClass(“hover”); $(‘li.has-submenu > a’).not(this).removeClass(“hover”); $(‘li.has-submenu > a’).not(this).removeClass(“sfHover”); link.parent().find(‘ul’).css(‘display’,’block’); link.parent().addClass(‘sfHover’); return false; //extra, and to make sure the function has consistent return points } }); }); </script>

Hey! Thanks for your solution. Maybe you could provide it to SuperFish plugin author (https://github.com/joeldbirch/superfish), so he could pull it in ;)

Hello.

Could you contact us on hello@dm-themes.com and provide admin access to your site? We’ll do it for you ;)

Hello DesignManiaThemes,

I have a short question concerning the Custom Login Page of this theme… however I am not sure if this is rather concrete5 related than theme related:

I would like to add a login page for visitors of my page to give them access to various files for download. Is the custom login page meant to provide this functionality (e.g. specify pages which are only accessible after login) or is the page meant to provide a login page for the CMS backend/admin of the page?

Thanks for your help in advance,

Simon

DesignManiaThemes

Hello.

Login page is used for both, backend and user access. You can set Public Registation and Public Login options in C5 settings.

If you have further questions, contact us via hello@dm-themes.com.

Hi would really like some help with installation of this theme I have followed the instructions that come with it correctly I think. I placed the files/ folders in Packages folder into Packages from within File Manager. I placed the files in single_pages into single_pages in file manager. I then installed the theme along with Sortable Fancybox Gallery & Whale Nivo Image Slider from within Add Functionality. At this point I notice there are no thumbnails to these items. After installation and activation all I get is a completely white screen, I can use the Concrete5 edit buttons but there is nothing to edit as it is all blank. If anyone could advise me I would be very grateful.

Default-user

I will add that I want to use this theme on a Addon domain with it’s own folder and database, and it is in this folder that I have placed the files, not in the main website package folders.

How can I change the sub-menu (sub-pages) from Vertical to Horizontal?

How do I reduce the height of the “Sitewide Site Logo” section?

I am using Uhuru version 1.1.

Thanks

Alberto

DesignManiaThemes

Hi,

Sorry, but Uhuru does not support horizontal sub-menus.

Sitewide Site Logo height is set dynamically and its breathing space is forced via 50px padding on each side. If you wish to reduce its size you can reduce paddings. Simply go to theme customization and add custom CSS as follows:

logo h1 {padding: XXpx;}

where XX is your desired padding, eg: #logo h1 {padding: 25px;}

Hope it helps.

If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Best regards

Hi, Great theme and I’ve been playing with it making some mods. I’m trying to switch the main nav with the header banner, so that the order is logo, main nav, header banner. I’ve changed the html in the header.php file, however after I do this, the idea boxes all push over to the left outside of the row… I’m not sure why they are doing this… This seems to only happen in firefox, I just tested in chrome and it was fine.

I’m also looking to make the header area span the entire width (like the footer) I see there is a container that starts at the header and finishes at the footer, so I’ll have a play with removing and putting it in different positions.

Any help / feedback appreciated…

DesignManiaThemes

Hi there.

It would be great if you could provide live preview of what have you done, because it is hard to imagine what exactly is happening and obviously we can’t investigate actual code. It’s like you went to car mechanic without your car and ask him for some instructions how to fix it ;) One problem can have many causes. For me it looks like floating issue. Simply try to use clearfix or hidden overflow on floated element and maybe this helps. If not, provide live preview, or at least some screenshots on hello@dm-themes.com and we’ll do our best to guide you on right track.

Best regards.

Hi, very nice theme! The next/previous buttons for portfolio carousel and Sortable Fancybox Gallery aren´t working in chrome and opera (ie and firefox, are ok)... I tested in the demo site – in case I did something wrong – but it doesn´t work either.. Can you help? Thanks in advance! Pedro

Hi – I seem to be missing several of the Page Types outlined in the documentation: Home with Ideas, Portfolio, Two Columns… Also, the Whale Nivo Slider does not seem to offer a choice for “Uhuru” theme in the Design tab… I’ve tried to recopy but no luck,

Sorry – a couple more while I’m at it… (perhaps I just need a re-install…)

1) I can’t get the Auto Nav menu items to show any of the sub-menu options. In the preview, I have “Display All” selected, but when I hover, the only selections available are top level. Possibly related – but the color change within the Auto Nav buttons does not fill up the box – only the word becomes highlighted in orange

2) With some of my content I have selected mouse-over properties to change the image (similar to what I believe you did with your demo). This seems to work okay in the text editor, but will not change in the live website. Perhaps I should be doing something differently for this feature?

Thanks for your help!
