Hi – could you tell me how to remove the “General Sidebar” from my pages? I don’t see an option to disable it, and when I don’t have any content in the general sidebar widget it still shows up on my site as a white box with “Latest News” at the top.

Thanks, John

Indonez

hello, you can remove this from sidebar.php file, find and remove all below code :

<div class="maincontent-sidebox">                           
                                <?php universe_latestnews($blog_cats_include,2,"<h?>".__('Latest News','universe')."");?>
                                </div>

Thanks.

Font replacement doesn´t work on Internet Explorer 8. Why?

Indonez

please download the latest version of cufon-yui.js file at http://cufon.shoqolate.com/js/cufon-yui.js?v=1.09i and replace the old cufon-yui.js file that located in js folder of universe theme.

Thanks.

Hi Indonez,

First of all, great work on the design of the theme.

I am having some trouble with the slideshow. It looks fine at first, but after a while the slides start changing really fast, so fast that you can’t read them. Have you noticed this? Why isn’t the slide change rate constant?

I read through the comments and saw that jmpey ask something about the speed of the slide show, but you did not make this answer public. Please help me fix this problem.

Thanks, Bethany

Indonez

hello, did you setted your slideshow speed from theme options => slideshow tab?

Thanks.

bethanysum

I don’t see where to set slideshow speed. I must not be looking in the right place. Theme options => slideshow tab? There is the slideshow collapsible menu on the left side bar on the admin screen, but I don’t see any speed option in any of that. There is also the Universe settings menu, but that doesn’t have a slideshow tab.

Hi! I’m having a lot of problems with timthumb.php in this website: http://4commerce.com.ar/esp/novedades/4commerce-presentamos-el-nuevo-website/

What can I do to fix them?

Thanks!

Indonez

Hello, I checked your site and there’s no problem with your timthumb.php script there, all images showing properly.

Thanks.

Hello, firstly thank you for a great theme.

On to the issue. There are a couple of things I am trying to figure out myself in the code for certain issues which I am doing fine with. But something a little out of my knowledge or so it seems is the sidebar on the front page.

I do not want to have that ‘Blog Feed Slider’ on the sidebar for the home page. And I wish to have some widgets on the side bar on the front page like you would with any other page.

Is there anyway in the code that I can just change the sidebar on the front home page to display the sidebar for like the ‘General Sidebar’? If that is easier?

I just want to be able to chose which widgets I am using for the home page sidebar and I see no option for customisation on this issue.

You reply would be much appreciated.

Regards

Hello,

you need to modify the sidebar.php file for this, please open sidebar.php flile, find and remove below code :

&lt;?php if (is_home()):  ?&gt;
                     <div id="sideslide">
                     &lt;?php $featured_cats = get_option('universe_sideslide_cat');
                       $slide_num = get_option('universe_sideslide_catnum') ? get_option('universe_sideslide_catnum') : 4;   
                     query_posts('category_name='.$featured_cats.'&showposts='.$slide_num);
                     while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
                     $image_thumbnail = get_post_meta($post?&gt;ID,"_image_thumbnail",true);
                      ?&gt;                
                        <div class="front-sidebox">
                        <div class="sidebox-text">
                        <h2>&lt;?php the_title();?&gt;</h2>
                        <p>&lt;?php excerpt(42);?&gt;</p>
                        <a href="&lt;?php the_permalink();?&gt;">&lt;?php echo __('Read more ','universe');?&gt;&raquo;</a>
                        </div>
                        <div class="sidebox-img">
                        <img src="&lt;?php bloginfo('template_directory');?&gt;/timthumb.php?src=&lt;?php echo $image_thumbnail;?&gt;&amp;h=276&amp;w=130&amp;zc=1" alt="" />
                        </div>
                      </div><!-- end of front-sidebox1 -->
                      &lt;?php endwhile;?&gt;
                    </div>
                    &lt;?php else : ?&gt;
and
                    endif;?&gt;   
at the end of the file right above
                <div id="sidebox-bottom"></div>

Thanks.

Hello,

In regardst to my last question and your answer.

I did exactly as you said, I removed the correct code which was:

&lt;?php if (is_home()): ?&gt; <div id="sideslide"> &lt;?php $featured_cats = get_option('universe_sideslide_cat'); $slide_num = get_option('universe_sideslide_catnum') ? get_option('universe_sideslide_catnum') : 4; query_posts('category_name='.$featured_cats.'&showposts='.$slide_num); while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); $image_thumbnail = get_post_meta($post?&gt;ID,"_image_thumbnail",true); ?&gt; <div class="front-sidebox"> <div class="sidebox-text"> <h2>&lt;?php the_title();?&gt;</h2> <p>&lt;?php excerpt(42);?&gt;</p> <a href="&lt;?php the_permalink();?&gt;">&lt;?php echo __('Read more ','universe');?&gt;&raquo;</a> </div> <div class="sidebox-img"> <img src="&lt;?php bloginfo('template_directory');?&gt;/timthumb.php?src=&lt;?php echo $image_thumbnail;?&gt;&amp;h=276&amp;w=130&amp;zc=1" alt="" /> </div> </div><!-- end of front-sidebox1 --> &lt;?php endwhile;?&gt; </div> &lt;?php else : ?&gt;

And

endif;?&gt;

After I did this it did take away the blog feed from the side bar but it come up with a syntax error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<’ in /home/clancou2/public_html/sihradesigns.com/wp-content/themes/universe/sidebar.php on line 57

Your help once again with this would be much appreciated, I fiddled about with some things but every correction I tried to make I just got another error on a different line of the sidebar.php file.

Also just incase you didn’t understand from my first question I just want to confirm that I would like the sidebar to display the widgets that I use for the sidebar on my other pages. Doing what you have said will get the results I am expecting right?

Thanks again. :)

Regards

Thanks.

I am sorry to make 3 comments all at once, just found another problem.

The contact page does not seem to work. I get the following error when I click on the contact page:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/clancou2/public_html/sihradesigns.com/wp-content/themes/universe/contact-form.php on line 34

hello, ok just contact me from my profile page regarding your questions, if you dont mind just provide me your wp login, let me check directly at your site.

Thanks.

I have spent a lot of time on this Universe theme but unfortunately I am faced with junking it. I have a huge problem with the slide show which is the preeminent feature of my website. My daughter created this site for me and attempted to get an answer from you about the issue without success. She is no longer working on it for me. I have to fix it now or junk it. Here is the issue as she posted it a month ago:

“I am having some trouble with the slideshow. It looks fine at first, but after a while the slides start changing really fast, so fast that you can’t read them. Have you noticed this? Why isn’t the slide change rate constant? I read through the comments and saw that jmpey ask something about the speed of the slide show, but you did not make this answer public. Please help me fix this problem.”

You responded with a question as to whether she set the speed of the slide show. There is no place to set the speed, and you did not answer her follow up request. Even if I did set the speed, that does not mean it will not start spinning rapidly as it does now after a few minutes.

This is urgent. Please tell me exactly how to fix this as soon as possible. Thank you.

Note: I have removed all the “slides” except one of them until I can fix it because it looks very bad otherwise.

Indonez

Hello,

Sorry for any inconvenience, but you did not have a “Purchased” badge.

Thanks.

No, my daughter purchased it for me and she is no longer available to help me. Someone told me that you haven’t updated the Java script to work with current Java update. I have given up on your slideshow.

Thank you for your reply. I fixed it indeed with the new prettyphoto library.

If you are having the same fault, not only fix the .js file, but also the .css file from prettyphoto.
