Weird problem – I try to customize my Ultra theme and it almost loads the page, but then pops up a grey box that says “Cheatin’ uh?” – what’s up with that?

WPExplorer

Try updating the theme and WordPress. I haven’t seen that bug/error since WordPress 3.5.

Default-user

clear cache & cookies and it resolved its bad self. :)

Hi,

I just installed the Ultra theme on my WP 3.8.1 instance. I ran into two problems.

1. When I try to upload I receive the error “Access Denied.” However, I have not run into that error previously when installing themes.

2. When I install the theme using FTP, it shows the theme as available for activation and I activate for the network (I am using multi site WP). However, it does not show for the individual sub blogs as a theme I can activate, even though it shows for as an active network theme. It also says the theme is broken as it lacks a style sheet.

WPExplorer

Sounds like you might have uploaded the entire zip that includes the documentation, sample data and theme.

Make sure to upload only the theme zip. When you go to download the theme you can download the full zip with all that good stuff or just the theme zip, make sure to download the correct one or extract the full zip and locate just the theme zip.

Ok, one quick question on the Portfolio home page or short code function…Can it be set to scroll horizontally rather than stack one after the other? It takes up a lot of real estate that way. I’ve seen the horizontal scroll in one of your other themes, but cant recall which. Maybe it’s a short code setting that I have not found yet. Thanks for the great theme though, we’ve been able to resolve any issues with your help so far. Cheers!

My new theme has this ability – http://totaltheme.wpengine.com/base/visual-composer/carousels/

I will likely start adding this composer to my older themes, but at the moment I do not have the time.

Have you checked out this plugin? http://codecanyon.net/item/showbiz-pro-responsive-teaser-wordpress-plugin/4720988

Also there are some free ones out there, did you try any?

Default-user

I tried a few, but no joy. either outdated or just didn’t work. I’ll check out the one you recommended, thanks!

WPExplorer

Good luck!

Just finishing up a client site using the Ultra theme. Really great theme and the client is very pleased: http://www.westpaclogistics.com Two questions: 1. How do I change the color and transparency value of the top menu hover buttons? 2. Is it possible for the top bar (where the phone number and quote button are) to remain stationary while the site scrolls up underneath it? (something the client asked)? Thanks again for all your great work on the theme and your excellent support.
WPExplorer

1. If you want to add a hover you can alter this via CSS.

2. Here is a great js plugin for that which I use in my newer theme “Total” – http://stickyjs.com/

Once I installed the theme, the link to download the revolution slider did not work. I dug around in the file, but did not see a file that looked like a plugin package. Please advise how I can download this slider.

WPExplorer

Generally that is a server permissions error if it doesn’t let you download automatically. If you unzip the theme though you should find the zip for the slider inside the “plugins” folder so you can upload it the “normal” way.

Great theme! Can the boxed version have a full screen (responsive) image in the background? (not a repeating pattern/image)

Thanks!

WPExplorer

Not by default, you would need to use a 3rd party plugin for this.

I have a client with version 2.4 of Ultra. What is the current version and will there will be things that will break and/or need fixing if I upgrade? I realize this might be a difficult question given that you don’t what plugins are installed… I will appreciate your best guess. Thanks! Kathy

WPExplorer

Hi Kathy,

The most up to date version is 1.21. Things shouldn’t ever “break” when updating a theme, however, if someone has modified the theme (which should never be done, one should use child themes) then the customizations will be lost when you override the files.

I am using Ultra for a site I am developing. After I upgraded to WP 3.9 the shortcodes button in the editor disappeared. Help! I already re-installed the theme and that did not help.

Default-user

The link from within WP is still not working. I’ve cleared the cache several times. I downloaded from your site and installed it using the .zip file straight into my WP installation. Now the entire tool bar disappears as well as the content in the Visual Editor, although I can see the content in the Text Editor.

WPExplorer

Ah darn, there does appear to be a small conflict with this particular theme. I just double checked locally.

I will submit the update right now (1.61) if you want send me a private message and I’ll zip over right now for ya ;)

Thanks for letting me know of the error!

WPExplorer

Actually upon much closer look it appears that the actual theme has the bug and it’s a super easy fix in functions/meta/page-meta.php – please send me a private message for the updated file it will fix it right up!

http://cl.ly/image/160Z3V013e3A I’m sure you’re gonna love the updated shortcodes ;)

Hi how do I disable to ability to click on a service title or icon which links to each service page?

WPExplorer

You would have to edit content-services.php and remove the link around it – see line 92.

Default-user

I have removed that line but nothing has happened?

WPExplorer

You have to remove that line and the closing link on line 97.

If it’s not doing anything…maybe you are using the shortcode? If so see functions/services-shortcode.php line 215.

A better thing would be to send me a private message (if you are infact using the shortcode) and I can send you an updated theme so you can use a parameter in the shortcode to disable the link ;)

Hi,

Please can you tell me what file I need to edit to increase the font size of the services title and body text when displayed as a grid of services.

Thanks

WPExplorer

You shouldn’t be editing any file, instead to make this edit you should add custom CSS to your site either via a child theme or custom CSS plugin.

Example code:

/*increase services title size*/
.services-entry-title { font-size: 18px; }
/*increase services content size*/
.services-entry-details { font-size: 14px; }
Default-user

thanks so much thats great

I am having the same issue as webkatdesignbiz with Symple Shortcodes after 3.9 upgrade.I deactivated it, uninstalled it, then reinstalled it using the link under “appearance” > Install plugins, but it did not fix the problem. The shortcode “S” button is still missing from the editor panel. And yes, it is activated.

Default-user

not sure if you logged in and did anything, but it’s now working. I’m thinking it was earlier today, but I needed to clear the cache., Thanks – great to have short codes again!

Default-user

Oh, and the Mac problem had nothing to do with your theme, it was FF 2.0 running on and old outdated iMac.

WPExplorer

Yes, probably just had to clear the cache ;)

Glad its all working now!

Edits to the category “services” is not saaving. Please can you help.

Default-user

its ok, i am using a different way to display services now

Default-user

but thank you

Important Update

The Symple Shortcodes will need to be updated to work with WP 3.9 and so will your theme. I’ve submitted the fix and update but it’s currently in the queue (you should receive an email when the update is ready if you are subscribed for notifications). If you need the update sooner just send me a private message and I will email it over!

WPExplorer

Link for the Symple Shortcodes plugin update on the changelog – http://www.wpexplorer.com/changelogs/ultra/

Just installed the theme and the revolution slider won’t install. I get this error message: An error occurred while installing Revolution Slider: Download failed. Forbidden. What do I need to do?

WPExplorer

The forbidden error is a permissions problem. What I suggest is that you extract the theme on your computer and locate the “plugins” folder it should be zipped up in there as revslider.zip.

ps: You should send me a private message for the updated theme and symple shortcodes plugin – I submitted an update but it hasn’t been approved yet by themeforest. You’ll want this for WP 3.9

How do I enable the breadcrumbs on inner pages? I don’t see it. Also, how do I get the sidebar menu to l look like the sidebar menu in your theme demo? The title is showing, but no breadcrumbs. www.garagedoormansd.com

Default-user

I figured out the menu issue. Just need to know about the breadcrumbs.

WPExplorer

The theme doesn’t have built-in breadcrumbs, but rather support for the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast – https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/ – it’s the one I recommend for SEO ;)

2day you have published a new update. is there an easy way, to make this theme update in WP? is it updating automatically? or do i need to reinstall the whole theme?

thx 4 your reply :)

WPExplorer

You don’t ever have to re-install the theme though, you can always override files via FTP.

inselberlin

ok, i got the plugin. thx a lot!

Where can I find the change log to see what has changed in this latest version?

Hi, can you please give instructions for carrying out the recent upgrade? When I try to do an upgrade based on the full zip or the one inside the Theme folder it fails sue to missing Style Css. When unzip the Theme zip locally, rename the old Theme and upload the new files I lose my customisation.

That worked. Thanks!

Is there a way to control the count for the number of Testimonials that display (scroll) at the bottom right (not the footer) of the pre-built Home page? It seems to be set for only 4 (recent). The Sidebar widget is working fine and scrolls through all (-1 setting). This widget has its own count and sequence control. I could not find any place for the Home page testimonials control in the Theme Options except for enabling.

WPExplorer

You can change it manually in templates/home-prebuilt.php

I just added a setting to the theme panel though, if you rather I can email you that update, just send me a private message via my profile page.

Default-user

I appreciate the theme panel setting option. Thanks very much!

WPExplorer

ok, will keep an eye out for the email!

Hi, My upload did not include the Revolution slider plugin. I also do not seem to have a contact page. Any advice? Thanks!

WPExplorer

Awesome!

I see the changes – http://cl.ly/image/1Z3f091T2W0z – probably was just cached for you?

shezallthat

There was an incorrect reference to the style folder in my functions.php. I changed that and everything worked fine. Thanks!
