Hello AJ,

Is there a way to obtain the full file with documentation and sample data once I’ve already downloaded simply the theme file itself? At first I only wanted the install file for WP, but now would like that extra information to help learn more about how the theme works. There is a lot to it and I’m very excited to have found it!

Never mind found the file, going through the videos now.

WPExplorer

Great, thanks for letting me know!

Default-user

Actually, I’ve gone through a couple of installations and cannot seem to import that sample data without resulting in a long list of “Failure to Import” errors. Is there a fix for this? I wish the comments on themeforest were searchable!

WPExplorer

What are the errors you are getting? I can’t really help without knowing at least a few of them.

You can actually search the comments here: http://searchinvato.com/index.php?link=http://themeforest.net/item/ultra-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/discussion/4371217

I have tried to re-import, so that many of the other objects already exist, but it seems that the media items are the problem. Here are some of the errors:

Hi Tim,

Yes it looks like you are having issues importing the images. This is generally an issue with your server permissions or with your server setting a limit on your PHP memory usage.

I double checked to make sure it’s not the sample data and its not. For example the first one “envato-vimeo” is perfectly fine: http://wpexplorer-demos.com/premium-ultra-full/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2012/11/envato-vimeo.png

Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t really provide useful errors in this regard. I would recommend you double check your server permissions to make sure you can download the images and save them as well as maybe increase your memory.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions#Permission_Scheme_for_WordPress
http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

If you can’t figure out how to fix the server, might be faster to just spend 5 minutes uploading your own images, no?

Upgraded to theme 1.2 and latest Wordpress 3.6.1, but the symple shortcodes is at the latest v1.3 but with the plugin activated in the edit post I am unable to type in the visual or text box. If I disable the plugin it all works. So i have to disable plugin write post and enable to add shortcode capability. How can I fix this? thanks

Hi AJ,

Could you help me with some basic stuff? I want the background to be white in the website I purchased this theme for. Now I run into this little problem of not being able to find where to alter the color for the menu items. Their font is by default white and the boxes for header style one are for example grey, which I would like them to be greenish..

Any push forward would be much appreciated.

many thanks in advance

WPExplorer

If you want to alter the menu items you would do this via Custom CSS, either added in a child theme or a custom CSS plugin (you can tweak your style.css if you want, but be careful not to override it if you ever update the theme).

Example…

/*make main nav links black*/
#navigation .sf-menu > li > a {  color: #000; }

Hi, We love your themes. We are using Ultra on one of our websites: photosynthesisnh.com. The problem we are having is that none of the menus show up on the home page. We just had one menu in the main nav section but the gray bar where it should be is blank. I changed the menu location to see if that worked but no luck. All the menus in all the locations show up on the interior pages. Can you please help?

WPExplorer

I’m glad!

This is very strange. I don’t even see any of the code in the source. By any change have you tried de-activating any active plugins to make sure it isn’t a plugin causing the issue?

Default-user

It was a plugin conflict. I thought I had already checked all of them but must have missed that one. Thanks.

Hi there, really enjoying your theme. very simple to use. I just upgraded to WP 3.6.1 and my visual editor is no longer working.

I deactivated all the plugins and the problem persisted.

I then switched to the Twenty Eleven theme, and the visual editor worked perfectly.

Can you help me please?

Default-user

by the way, I have version 1.04… might this be the problem?

Default-user

Never mind! I figured it out. Went back through the support requests and found the answer. Simple shortcodes 1.4 upgrade.

Hi AJ. Trying to add Google’s website translation html so the language selector appears in “Top Bar Left Content.” The code from Google holds true in the widgets and on posts/pages, but not in Theme Options text/html area inputs.

The Options page is stripping out the last script in the Google code. What’s odd is that it’s not removing the first script. I tried encasing the last one in a div but still no luck. Here is the code:

<div id="google_translate_element" /><script type="text/javascript">
function googleTranslateElementInit() {
  new google.translate.TranslateElement({pageLanguage: 'en', includedLanguages: 'af,en,es,fr,pt', layout: google.translate.TranslateElement.InlineLayout.SIMPLE, gaTrack: true, gaId: '(account # removed)'}, 'google_translate_element');
}
</script><script type="text/javascript" src="//translate.google.com/translate_a/element.js?cb=googleTranslateElementInit"></script>

Same thing happens if I try to add the code to the footer copyright area. Thanks for your help…

WPExplorer

Hi there,

The theme panel strips out the code for security reasons. This could should be added manually in header.php or footer.php

Default-user

Thank you. You’ve made my setup and site design pretty easy with this theme. Looking forward to another.

With theme Ultra when one creates a page using shortcode [bbpress-forum-index] from the plugin BBPress and you view the page and then do a search on the forums a result is not displayed. Rather an inifinite loop results (see attachment Search2.jpg). If you switch to the theme Twenty-Eleven it works (see attechment Search3.jpg)

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your email. Could you please provide some more details about your inquiry as it is not quite clear what you would like help with. Thanks very much.

Regards, Thinesh P

Default-user

My question is. Is there a fix for search error? Thanks

WPExplorer

Hi Thinesh,

This is because of how the plugins works its conflicting with the theme.

1. Create a folder in the theme called bbpress.
2. Then open the bbPress plugin and locate the content-search.php file.
3. Copy/paste it in the bbpress folder you created in your theme.
4. Alter it to fit your needs.

Hi AJ -

I just moved site to a new directory on the server, and one problem: “icon” images are not showing up on pages like this – http://susanmonserud.com/structures/

The full images are there (click on “broken image” and they will come up), and can scroll through, but “icon” image grids on the pages not working: http://susanmonserud.com/stones-and-water/ http://susanmonserud.com/grasses-and-moss/ http://susanmonserud.com/stripeslines/ http://susanmonserud.com/other-landscapes/ http://susanmonserud.com/chantingpassage/

Hope you can help – many thanks as always!

Hi David,

It’s a bit hard to know whats going on just from looking at the site. But I’, thinking maybe the GD library isn’t running on your server (WP uses it to crop images). Can you double check? Or ask your webhost to?

bluesea7

Hi AJ – Thanks for the reply.

GD is installed and enabled, but that led to further investigating, and I figured it out… Here is info, in case this happens to anyone else:

In the Media Settings, under “Store uploads in this folder,” the pathway was still set to the url of the development site. Once I corrected this to the new path of the production site, everything was good.

As always, many many thanks for your terrific themes and great support!

Ah, that would do it ;)

Glad it’s all sorted out now!

Hi,

I’m using this theme for an opticians website. I want to use the portfolio to display glasses and sunglasses. I want one page to have a menu to the left, showing all brands of glasses and one page for sunglasses. As shown here:

Glasses: http://ofvre.se/glasogon-information/bagar/

Sunglasses: http://ofvre.se/solglasogon-information/marken/

However, when I click on a brand on the sunglasses page; the glasses menu is shown. I guess this is beacuses they are using the same category (custom category name is “glasogon” instead of standard “portfolio”).

Is there any way around this?

Thanks,
Joakim

Hi Joakim,

To be honest I’m not quite sure I understand the issue is. My guess is the way the sidebars are setup. Are you using WooSidebars? I don’t think the WooSidebars supports different sidebars depending on different taxonomies. You might have to find a more powerful plugin – one that supports taxonomies, that way you can choose the specific sidebar for each category. Make sense?

graphic_dev

I am using WooSidebars. To clarify, I am currently using two “landing pages”. Each landing page says “use the sidebar menu to show a category”. Both pages has different menues, pointing to different categories. When I click on a category, I am redirected to the portofolio page where the items for the chosen category is shown.

The problem is that I only have one portfolio, so I can only select one menu to be displayed in the sidebar (I could put two menues there, but I only want to show one at a time).

You can recreate the problem by going to this page: http://ofvre.se/solglasogon-information/marken/ and then click on any category in the sidebar menu.

Any other pointers on how one could solve this issue?

Thanks,
Joakim

WPExplorer

Hi Joakim,

Its like I said, what you need to do is figure out how to have custom sidebars on the custom taxonomy pages (portfolio categories). WooSidebars doesn’t allow this. Have you tried finding another sidebar management plugin that allows you to select sidebars depending on your taxonomy?

The other option (if you don’t have too many categories) is to use the grid shortcode and create different standard pages for categories instead of linking directly to the taxonomy archives.

graphic_dev

I couldn’t find a good sidebar plugin which met my requirements, so what I finally decided to do was to create a separate page for each category and then use the portfolio shortcode to display the items for that category.

Hey AJ, I’m trying to edit the responsive.css file and every change that I make I see no changes over the iPad/iPhone or any other device that is no my PC.

Any idea why?
  • I’m using a child theme over the original theme, located the responsive.css file at the folder [Child Theme/css/responsive.css].

Thanks in advance, Avi.

WPExplorer

Hi Avi,

Are you sure the site isn’t being cached? If you check out the source code on your desktop and look at the responsive.css file do you even see the edits?

AviGil
AviGil Purchased

Yup, can see the changes online.

Tried to get back to the original Ultra theme and to see if it helps but no avail.

Am I doing it right? The responsive.css responsible of all the devices except the Desktops, right? :\

  • I’m running the wordpress platform on WAMP server.

Seems weird, any ideas?

WPExplorer

It’s hard to know what the issue is without seeing what you are doing.

Are you sure you are adding your CSS within the proper media queries? If you look at the responsive.css file you will see different sections for the different devices.

AviGil
AviGil Purchased

Yup, changing the right settings at the right queries, That what is so weird. :S

There is a chance to get a further help? the responsive funcation is automatically enabled, right? the only file that responsible for it is located at the CSS folder?

Thanks AJ :)

WPExplorer

That is correct. If you right click and choose to view source can you locate the responsive.css file? If so, click on it and see if you can spot your edits to make sure they are taking affect.

If you can show me the URL and an example of the CSS you are trying to alter I can help, but right now I don’t have much to work with.

AviGil
AviGil Purchased

Yeah I can see the changes.

Ok, I will upload the website to my hosting server and I’ll share a link with you ASAP.

It’s been a while since I’m running the site now, but I did not noticed that the archive pages portfolio category buttons are over the breadcrumb of Yoast WordPress SEO Plugin (a plug that is recommended for that theme). And it is pretty hugly. Is there a way to fix this ? Thanks for the help.

WPExplorer

It should be a simple CSS fix. My guess is maybe you have a lot of categories, can you show the URL in question?

Default-user

here : http://www.lovemyvod.fr/VOD/ and there http://www.lovemyvod.fr/VOD-genres/drame/ etc… I was think also of something about the number of my categories that is too large. Thanks for the help.

WPExplorer

Dam yes, this is a lot of categories…

Have you considered maybe simply hiding the filter at the top and putting this in the navigation or elsewhere? With so many categories it’s not going to look so good in the design. Or maybe tweak the design to create simple links instead of the default “button” style links?

Default-user
xzulien Purchased

It’s common to have many categories for this kind of archive. on the page I can edit, it works well, example here : http://www.lovemyvod.fr/nouveautes-vod/ . My problem is I don’t know how to put the breadcrumb and the title of the page, just above the button rows. I know it’s big, but this is my limit : I can’t edit the style of the button of the archive (also it may change the style of all buttons). Is it still CSS edit to avoid the breadcrumb under the buttons ?

Default-user
xzulien Purchased

Any help on the css ? I just need to put some space like the other pages after the breadcrumb to avoid overlap

WPExplorer

I see you’ve altered the page to have the filter below ;)

Default-user
xzulien Purchased

hum nope I did not change anything at all… http://www.lovemyvod.fr/VOD-genres/drame/ still same : buttons over breadcrumbs

WPExplorer

Oh sorry, I was looking at this page: http://www.lovemyvod.fr/nouveautes-vod/

If you have a look at the screenshot below you can see that removing the absolute positioning, adding a top margin and removing the fixed height already gets you in a better position:

http://cl.ly/image/3m1k3e3q3H3I

So the custom css would be something like this:

ul.tax-archives-filter { position: inherit; height: auto; top: auto; margin-top: 20px; right: auto; }

You can take it further maybe by giving some space between the links and maybe even styling then to match your other page.

Hi AJ -

I’ve been having the problem with the visual editor not showing up after upgrading to WP3.6.1, and I followed instructions from posts above regarding updating the theme and Simple Shortcodes to 1.4…. also have tried deactivating all plugins – but still, cannot get the visual editor back.

here is the site: http://www.sbautostereo.com/

I figure you can’t do much without looking under the hood a little – could i make you a user so you could take a look? Or if you have any other suggestion(s) for me, I will try those first…

Many thanks as always!

Hi David,

Did you clear your site/browser cache after updating your shortcodes plugin? Generally that’s the issue people have.

Of course if you want to PM me your logins & URL we’ll be glad to have a look, just be sure to mention the issue in your message so we know what the problem is – thanks!

Hey AJ, I’ve tried to create a pagination in the home page but no success. My homepage includes only Portfolio entries, without the other options. when I enable a pagination on other pages it works well but on the Pre-Built Homepage template the pagination doesn’t work.

It is possible?

Thanks, Avi.

WPExplorer

Hi Avi,

This is an issue with WordPress, you can’t have pagination on the homepage unless your code has been manually added to index.php and you are overriding the default query like this – http://justintadlock.com/archives/2010/02/02/showing-custom-post-types-on-your-home-blog-page

I am assuming you are using the shortcode? If so, it won’t be possible. Unfortunately because its an issue with WordPress there isn’t anything I can do to help. If you required paginated portfolio items on the homepage you need to create your own query in index.php or in a new file front-page.php as I mentioned above.

Is there not a custom CSS panel in theme options? I can’t find one anywhere. Please advise. (One of the best themes ever!) Thanks a lot

WPExplorer

Hi there,

I didn’t add one to this theme. If you PM me I can update it really quickly though and send it to you. But basically I didn’t add it because the options panel was already large enough.

You could also use a plugin such as this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/my-custom-css/

WPExplorer

You could add the font to the list in functions/typography.php on line 36 in the function wpex_typography_get_google_fonts() then it should show up in your theme panel.

If you let us know the name of the font we can also add it to make sure its available in the next update.

My only problem with this theme is the poor hover appearance when using header style 2 and a darker colored background. The hover color is so dark that is cannot be seen. The buttons should POP out when you mouse over them. I’m assuming this is a manual CSS fix, but where? Also, the “custom skin top color” gradient setting do not appear to do anything.

WPExplorer

Hi,

The header style 2 isn’t really meant to be used with the dark skin I guess. The way the theme is setup is the navigation is a see-through element so as you choose your custom color it can be seen through it. If you use jet-black then it won’t be visible.

If you try the custom color above and maybe go with #444444 or #555555 it should be much better!

I double checked and tested the top gradient button and it’s working fine. When you change it have a look at your services, this is where you can really see the difference.

Default-user

That’s fine, but what CSS element controls the menu hover color for heading 2? Or do I just guess? or can this be done using the theme options panel?

Default-user

Plus, all the background patterns are dark and the hover works poorly with all those too. A few more preset heading styles would be nice….especially one to make the (heading 2 style) hover buttons pop out better.

WPExplorer

For the h2 hovers you should add some extra css to control that. I can help with that if you want.

Thanks for the suggestions, I’ll write that down for future updates ;)

Default-user

I sure could use help! Not a clue where to start expect probably editing style.css, which I haven’t touched yet, but can edit per your instructions. I await your guidance.

Having an additional pre made menu, similar to #2 with popping buttons on a dark background would be a great addition / improvement to an already great theme! thx!

WPExplorer

You should never edit style.css because if you ever update your theme you would lose your changes. You should add your custom CSS to a child theme or via a custom css plugin.

So for example to change the menu background for heading style two you would add something like:

/*make the navigation in header style 2 gray*/
#site-wrap.header-two #navigation { background: #444; }
Default-user

Thanks! that works, but now what is needed is a little more contrast between the hover and non hover states….can you help with that? Change was applied using “My Custom CSS” plugin.

WPExplorer

Generally we don’t assist with modifications, but if you want to share the URl you are working on I would be glad to give you some tips ;)

It’s not possible to do this in WordPress without some crazy .htaccess edits.

I have changed the portfolio order to ‘title’ in content-portfolio.php so my portfolio is in alphabetical order. It is, however, it is from Z-A… how do I get it A-Z ?

WPExplorer

Is this for the images?

What you would change is where it says ‘order’ => ‘ASC’, to ‘order’ => ‘DESC’,
