How do I make the portfolio order from A-Z?

JohnnyWeb

I reloaded the theme & removed plugins, but it is still not working.

JohnnyWeb

Could you please give me your contact info so I can contact you with info directly so you can look at it?

Hi, I love this theme and am thinking of purchasing but I don’t wish to use Google fonts. Do you happen to know please whether I might be able to use the “Use Any Font” Wordpress plugin? Thanks so much.

I’m having some trouble with my Revolution Slider and contact ThemPunch, they stated that the theme author needs to update the version that they have included with the theme. When will you issue an update to include their updates? I have version 1.2 of Ultra and 3.0.5 of RevolutonSlider

WPExplorer

I’ll look into updating it tonight. If you send me a private message I can email you the zip of the updated plugin. Thanks for letting me know that it is out of date!

Hi, I am using version 1 of the home page. How can I add preview thumbnails to the recent posts that appear at bottom of the homepage? (similar to the thumbnails in the recent posts in version 5 of the home page). thank you :)

WPExplorer

Unfortunately the only way would be to alter the ‘symple_blog’ shortcode to have thumbnails support because it doesn’t by default ;(

Maybe you’ll want to consider my new theme with tons more options and drag and drop ;)

Thanks for your answer. 1. Where can I limit the number of tags that are display in the footer? 2. Can you give more details for how to add preview thumbnails to the recent posts that appear at bottom of the homepage?

WPExplorer

1. Are you using the tagcloud widget? There isn’t any built-in way for limiting the WP tagcloud, you would need to find a plugin that ads more advanced support for that.

2. You would have to edit the shortcode at functions/shortcodes/blog-shortcode.php – you can see by default if the blog shortcode is set to the news style it won’t display the thumbnails.

The other alternative (maybe better) is to edit templates/home-prebuilt.php and remove line 138 “style=”news” so that the recent blog displays as the thumbnail grid. If you do this though, it won’t look amazing, so you would probably want to do a little css tweaking.

My slider is larger than the container on my homepage and I need to figure out why. It’s set to “auto responsive” in revolution slider but it doesn’t seem to play well with the theme. I’d like to send you a screenshot of this. Please let me know your email addy.

WPExplorer

There isn’t an option to upload a screenshot, but you could save it online somewhere and link to it (such as on your server) or you could just send the message, then I’ll respond via email and you can reply with a sc.

Happy New Years to you too!

Hi there. I’m interested in purchasing this theme. A few questions first though.

1) Can I reduce the padding in between the logo/navigation bar and the slider? I’d like to make that whole section tighter, closer together. 2) Also, are there any links to clients using this particular theme?

Thanks!

WPExplorer

Sorry for the delay!

1&2. It’s possible to do these, but would require CSS edits there aren’t any built-in options for these.

If you have a look at my Total theme though there are way more options for these customizations – http://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019

3. I don’t have any links sorry ;( I don’t usually keep a list because people really like to switch themes often so it would just be something else to constantly monitor.

The required plugin Symple Shortcodes won’t install. The others did just fine. Ideas?

WPExplorer

A shoot I think it’s pointing to the wrong place, I recently did a cleanup on my amazon server. Can you try now?

You can also find it on Github – https://github.com/wpexplorer/symple-shortcodes

Sorry about that!

Default-user

Worked…thanks :)

WPExplorer

Great, sorry about that & thanks for letting me know!

Loving the theme, but few quirky things going on for me. Bought some icons to use for client for the services, but they’re adding to the Gallery in Services (post) but not appearing where they should as the icon. Am I missing a step? I could customize it, but that’ll take a lot longer for me. Maybe it’s not working the way I think it’s supposed to. Thanks!

Default-user

Sort of answered my own question. It works when I put the file URL in the space allotted, but when I use the Upload button right next to it doesn’t work. Just a UI suggestion :)

Default-user

Few other things not clear, but think I’m figuring it out…

WPExplorer

Hi there,

I double checked the upload button on the services on the latest version of the theme (on WP 3.8) and I didn’t see any issue, you are clicking where it says “Use This Image” – http://cl.ly/image/0e2o1J0n1o24 ?

Glad you are figuring things out, sorry for the delay on my response! Have a wonderful weekend 8-)

Import WordPress Failed to import Objeto “envato-vimeo” Failed to import Objeto “app-design” Failed to import Objeto “Man Watering a Plant” Failed to import Objeto “fall-scarf” Failed to import Objeto “happy-guy” Failed to import Objeto “mid adult woman using a computer” Failed to import Objeto “business-boss” Failed to import Objeto “Trams, Lisbon, Portugal” Failed to import Objeto “Cable Car in Street in Lisbon Portugal” Failed to import Objeto “Architect Thinking”

what would be the solution?

thanks

WPExplorer

Looks like the images are failing to import, can you double check that your server permissions are set correctly for the wp-content folders?

Also, make sure to check the box to import attachments when you do the import.

There’s a random dropdown box showing up under my navigation bar when I view my site in Chrome and Firefox, it’s not there but in Chrome, it’s there. Do you know why this is and how I can get rid of it? Below is the screenshot.

Also, the search in the navigation bar isn’t working.

Please advise.

That fixed it! You rock! Thanks!

And other question I have. Where is H1 controlled? I thought it was “page titles” but on my theme, Page Titles is supposed to be the serif google font I chose. However, on my homepage, stuff I set as H1 (what I do, etc) is sans serif.

WPExplorer

You really should use H2’s for those for SEO reasons. H1 should only appear 1x per page for the main title.

WPExplorer

Glad you fixed the other issue, the site is looking good!

Hi, In your demo there is a homepage-version-3, 1. Where I find this version in my admin? 2 . And can I insert to this version the last blogs?

Thanks,

WPExplorer

Sorry for any confusion you may have. The default homepage is created using the homepage template while the other ones are created using shortcodes. So for homepage style 3 I have this code – http://pastebin.com/KCCzDCEv

Because it is created with shortcodes, yes you can add the recent blog posts shortcode to the page.

Hey WPExplorer, Is there any chance you update the Slider Revolution to v4?

Thanks in advance, Avi.

WPExplorer

Send me an email and I’ll hook you up with the latest version.

You can also browse to functions/recommen-plugins.php (in the latest version) and you’ll find the link to the latest version. I’ll be sure to add these into the docs next time around!

Thanks ! I will email you in a second.

WPExplorer

Responded via email.

have you seen any windows 7 with explorer 8 issues? i have clients saying that get a blank screen.

WPExplorer

A blank screen on IE8 is generally a javascript problem. Try de-activating plugins to see if any is causing it.

If you have windows yourself you can open the URL and in the IE web tools change the browser mode to check – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2823575/en-us

If there are any errors it will display in the console.

I’m beginning to see some quirky issues with the theme when viewed on a Windows computer vs a Mac. http://kandmcollision.com on a Mac looks good, but on a PC it’s missing the body background of white. On interior website pages, the page title header is missing the background where it should be white. On a Mac it is white. Suggestions?
WPExplorer

Whether you are on a mac or PC it doesn’t make a difference, what makes the difference is the browser. Can you let me know what browser you are having issues with on the PC so I can look?

MulderDSM

It actually turned out to be a hacked site issue and was only showing up on a PC since I believe the hack was targeted towards PC users. On a Mac (Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox) it all appeared fine. On a PC (Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox and IE) it was all messed up.

WPExplorer

Bummer ;( Glad you got it figured out! Hopefully you had everything backed up!

Hi,

I also can’t install demo data (same problem as consistec), this way I can’t get it to look like demo. Also i’m not able to get the slider like in the demo.

Thanks in advance!

WPExplorer

What errors do you get when you import the sample data?

The sample sliders are also included with the theme, did you import the sample slides?

Nice theme

How do i add the buttons to the top strip where the social icons are like you did in the demo?

Thanks,

Eric

WPExplorer

Hi Eric,

This is actually a menu location. So you would add them at Appearance->Menu.

“Top Right” menu location.

Having another issue with the template. iPhone and iPad are displaying images from the blog in portrait when they should be viewable in landscape. Please check it out: http://www.theparlourhairsalon.com/blog on an iPhone or iPad (works fine on Android and my Macbook). My client is going nuts. Your help is greatly appreciated! Love the theme!

I tried disabling plugins one by one and no success on fixing the issue. Could it be an iPhone auto-rotate issue? I am not able to locate retina-support in theme options. Where in theme options is it located?

Hi AJ, With this Ultra theme, is it possible to use the Portfolio (filter) page and have each portfolio item open its own gallery of “slimbox” images?

All the themes I’ve seen tend to open the portfolio item in a new page. (GRRRRR!)

many thanks, Scott

I see on your ‘Adding Portfolio items’ tutorial video (50 seconds in)...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91XZhR0EgeI&feature=share&list=PLHWJAqf5oydSffDYS0ohMW85I8vaKq3JH&index=7

...that there’s a feature to specify the ‘Entry format’ as ‘Lightbox’. I’ve set this on my test site and I can get a lightbox to show two images – albeit they are the same image. Is it not for this purpose?? (I thought I’d struck gold!)

I can’t believe it’s this rare/difficult to find the solution I’m after? Clicking back and forth between portfolio filter page and casestudy seems clunky when the client just wants a series of image galleries.

Any ideas?

WPExplorer

The lightbox simply opens the small featured image full size so the user can view the whole un-cropped image.

If you want to show me the URL in question maybe I can give you some suggestions for your client.

Thanks AJ, but it’s running locally via MAMP. Not to worry, I’m just venting as I’ve been asked for this feature from a number of clients and I always have to convince them it’s better to have the gallery open on it’s own page.

I can set it up manually on a full-width ‘static’ page (using the plugin ‘Thickbox’) but then lose the ‘filtering’ feature and the backend ‘post with gallery’ convenience for the client.

Perhaps an option for one of your future theme’s?

Hi

I have just bought and downloaded your theme a few days ago. In my case, search icon next to the menu (Header Style 1) is not working when i click on top.

Secondly the menu doesn’t appear or loads when i reduce the size of my browser to mobile width. I can only see three lines on the RHS side with no links dropdown on the responsive version of site.

Please resolve these two issues asap as the deadline is end of January.

Many thanks, Ali

Thanks for replying – it is indeed the case that there is a JS error in the console and also i am using a premium plugin called (Event Booking Pro) which is apparently causing the problem. How can i send you the login details? is there any way to privately send you the message?

WPExplorer

The error (according to what you pasted above) is coming straight from the plugin, you should contact the plugin developer and see if they can help you out.

ps: If you are using a caching plugin like W3 Total Cache and are minifying the scripts, this sometimes causes issues.
