Before I purchase this theme, is there a link where I could see how other people are using the theme for their individual sites? Would love to see some variations and customization aside from the dummy template. Thanks!

WPExplorer

Hi Alex,

Unfortunately not a lot of people have shared their sites yet, maybe because its a new theme or because its so well done I haven’t gotten that many support requests ;)

I would love to show you some examples, just don’t have them…let me see if I can get some!

I did not find how under the testimonials on the home page to display only a summary of some words and not all the post, Just as in services or blog. I have no problem sharing the site that almost ready for publishing, but the site in Hebrew,And on temporary Domain: http://inbar-solar.com.networkprotected.com

If you are using the built-in homepage style then this will need to be done by editing the template located at templates/home-prebuilt.php

Can you tell me what line to change to what?

WPExplorer

Oh sorry I was confused…I thought you wanted to add extra content on the homepage below the testimonials. I just re-read the question.

You want to crop the testimonial into an excerpt…

To do this, use the “excerpt” field in your testimonial post editor. Add whatever content you want to display. The theme will then show a read-more link after the custom excerpt.

It’s the first thing I tried

WPExplorer

Oh sorry, you are correct. The testimonials have the excerpt disabled by default.

if you open template/home-built.php and find line 55 and change from:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[symple_testimonials count="4"]'); ?>

to

<?php echo do_shortcode('[symple_testimonials count="4" excerpt="true"]'); ?>

You mean home-prebuilt.php line 155, and it works Thank you

After the change you also need to change style.css-> Line 2768—> | # post. testimonial-content { width: 876px; } And also line: 2734-> | . testimonial h1 { font-size: 24px;      margin: 24px 0px 10px; } -> Now it’s perfect

Is it possible to sort Portfolios, Staff, etc? (not filter, just need a certain order)

WPExplorer

Yes.

2 ways:

1. Using the custom post type order plugin

2. On the shortcodes you can use the order=”” and orderby=”” parameters – https://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters

AJ, Any idea why the demo is showing with a responsive menu when my browser is full screen mode? Screen shot here: http://postimg.org/image/xhyld7akb/

Can’t seem to get it to show a regular menu.

thx

WPExplorer

It’s possible you are using a really small screen. The theme is set by default to go “responsive” at a certain size to ensure full compatibility with small notebook computers.

It can be changed though easily – http://www.wpexplorer.org/knowledgebase/ipad-landscape-ultra/

Default-user

Thanks AJ, That was the issue. I was looking at the theme on an old laptop with a smallish display. I moved to my desktop with a much bigger display and it looks fine.

I think I’ll end up buying this theme. I purchased one from another author who maybe isn’t as “legendary” :-) as you, and I’m really sorry I did. He’s been promising an update for 2 months now to address a few issues and it’s still not delivered. Posting a question on the support forum often goes unanswered…so needless to say not a good experience.

This theme looks really nice and should work well for me.

WPExplorer

;)

Legendary, haha. Awesome.

I usually try and help people as quick as possible. Especially when it’s a theme issue/bug because those are things that are my fault and not the users.

If you purchase, I hope it works out well for you!

Default-user

Hi AJ, Sorry to bug you again. I have a couple more questions regarding theme capability. 1. I’d like to have a single sentence tag line in the font of my choosing directly under the slider on the home page. I don’t really want a lot of extra space above and below the tag line, but some of course is necessary. On your home page example 4 you have “Welcome To The Ultra WP Theme Enjoy your stay.” on two sentences of fairly large font. Could I design my own home page and put my tag line under the slider like you did but using a different font style and having a smaller area consumed?

2. For the staff page I’d like to be able to have a single staff member centered at the top of the page, then 2 members directly below that person and then maybe 3 or 4 below that. I would imagine I could use short codes to create the columns, but can I then use the staff member short code within the columns to create the effect I’m talking about? Once again, I believe it’s possible but want to verify first.

Thanks again, Bill

  • The tagline can be edited via the theme options panel within a text editor so you can have whatever you want there.
  • Homepage examples 2+ are all done via shortcodes only the default homepage is controlled via the theme panel. So you can change these as much as you want. They are just samples of what you can do. There is a font-size selector in the post editor built-in.

3. The only way you’ll be able to achieve the staff layout is by editing your CSS. I would suggest just using the default staff shortcode or archive, then clearing left margins using the CSS nth:child pseudo class to achieve the layout you want.

Hi – your support pages are not functioning and we need urgent help. After weeks of work – ALL OUR PAGES HAVE GONE MISSING – what do we do now

WPExplorer

My support seems fine. Iit has moved to http://wpexplorer.org as noted on the updated docs and profile page. Maybe you are still trying to access the old site?

A theme itself wouldn’t have deleted any pages there are 2 guess I have:

1. You are getting 404 errors on your post types. If so just go to settings->permalinks and click the save button.

2. Your database got messed up or someone manually deleted all pages in which cause you need to revert to a backup.

Default-user

thanks for the feedback – really helped me restore them – all ok!!

The color scheme seems to shift when switching between full-width and boxed layout. Is this intentional, or is there something I am missing? (e.g., site title font color is black in full-width and white in boxed)

WPExplorer

This is correct.

The full-width is white all the way across. It would look pretty bad if you had a color going behind all your text/images.

There are two folders – Ultra and Ultra child…which one I have to install? I have installed Ultra folder its showing following error

Destination folder already exists. /home/content/73/10760373/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/Ultra/

I was able to install Ultra Child but its need parent folder Ultra… Can you advise on error above?

WPExplorer

Why are you yelling at me!!

There is a readme file included explaining how it works.

If you don’t know how to use a child theme that just install the ultra.zip and use that. The child theme is provided as a convenience for advanced users.

Based on the error above it sounds like you are trying to re-install the same theme for a second time, meaning it’s already being installed.

Wordpress theme error message after upload of Ultra The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template. Name Description Ultra Stylesheet is missing. Template is missing.

WPExplorer

Sounds like you are installing the entire zip purchased from themeforest and not just the theme. Please read the documentation on how to install the theme or watch the video guide:

Hello WPExplorer! One quick pre-sale question: I would like to include an events listing similar to your “Earth” Template. Can that be done using the Ultra template and some external plugin? If yes, which one would you recommend?

WPExplorer

My friend Pippin actually make a plugin based off of my Earth Calendar:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sugar-calendar-lite/

I haven’t actually tested the plugin with the Ultra theme, but if you do and have any issues feel free to ask on our support site – http://wpexplorer.org

Can someone please explain to me how to get my home page to look like the homepage with the slider and all the features etc????!! Right now its just blog posts and will not switch to my actual home page. HELP!!

WPExplorer

Sure,

This is explained in documentation (included in the zip) as well a the video guides (link on theme page).

If you don’t care to read/watch the support…there are 2 ways of setting up the homepage.

1. Create a new page and select the “Homepage Pre-Built” template. Then go to Settings->Reading and define this page as the “static” homepage option. Then under Appearance->Theme Options ->Home you can edit the homepage layout. You will of course have to also create your slider in the Slider Revolution tab and insert the shortcode into the theme options.

2. The other option is to just create a regular new page. Add your content using shortcodes/text. Then set this page as the static homepage under Settings->Reading.

Hope this helps. I really would recommend checking out the docs and the videos as they should be really helpful.

Also the support site is located at http://wpexplorer.org

I get this error :

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

WPExplorer

You need to make sure to first extract the zip you get from ThemeForest so you can install just the theme:

I’ll have a look my gf made the videos and she’s still learning ;)

I did make this video as well that’s on the Knowledgebase:

Hi. How can i do make the menu with strong/bold text. Both without and with mouseover?

Thank you.

WPExplorer

Use CSS:

#navigation a { font-weight: bold; }
Default-user

Thank you. It didn’t work, but i used:

#navigation .sf-menu > li > a {
    height: 30px;
    line-height: 30px;
    font-weight: bold;
    color: #fff;
    color: rgba(255,255,255,1);
    text-decoration: none;
    padding: 0 12px;
    border-radius: 3px;
    -moz-border-radius: 3px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 3px;
    -webkit-transition: all 0.3s ease;
    -moz-transition: all 0.3s ease;
    transition: all 0.3s ease;
}

if it doesn’t work it’s probably not overriding so you could use an !important tag.

How can I change the main menu navigation in full width option as in boxed option?

I’m not understanding the question.

Any future HTML version?

WPExplorer

If more people request it I don’t see why not ;) But probably have the boxed and the full-width as separate HTML’s and sell them on another marketplace where I can sell them cheaper (if it’s allowed)

Hi, I would like to change the headers colors. This is what I have put in my Child Theme css:

@import url("../Ultra/style.css"); h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { color: #45725a; margin: 40px 0 20px; }

Nothing changed, so what am I doing wrong? URL: http://relationshipcenterforchange.com/ Thanks in advance!

WPExplorer

I don’t see that at all. If you are using the child theme included with the theme please have a look at the functions.php file. You’ll notice the css being pulled is actually in css/style.css – so you can edit it there ;)

Or remove all from functions.php to use your child theme as one would normally.
