Is there any “tool tip” functionality? I’m looking to have a small block of text popup when the user rolls the mouse over a link or icon. If this functionality isn’t built in are there any tool tip plugins that would be recommended to work with this theme?

unisphere

Hi, I’m afraid not. I haven’t personally used any plugin that provides a tooltip feature but I’m sure you’ll find a free one rather easily.

Hi, I purchased your theme yesterday and had the standard issues with deployment many other users have, After restoring defaults on all theme options I got some of the styling back, but not all (specifically the header but there are a few things that don’t look right.) I have restored defaults on all options and imported the sample data the theme comes with, but no luck. Please advise. Site is http://southwestpropertytax.com/

Thank you.

Thanks a lot, any idea of what went wrong for the next guy or if I have to reinstall in the future?

Great theme, great support!

Hi! How can I automatically add a thin gray line (like the one that’s under browse in the sorting function) between each row of 4 images on a 4-column portfolio page?

Here’s a link to the page I want to modify: http://fortisrep.com/deals/

Very much appreciate your help. Thank you!

unisphere

Hi, you can add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

.portfolio-4-columns-list-no-gutter .portfolio-image img {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #e0e0e0;
}

Best regards

Awesome. Thanks! Is there a way to make the (same) line span across all columns?

unisphere

Hi, yes, just replace the code I provided earlier with this:

.portfolio-4-columns-list-no-gutter li {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #e0e0e0;
}

I have a site where the layout is set for narrow. Is there a way to use the wide_bar short code to place an image, but have 5 to 10 pixels left and right to show the page background color? I want to create a gradient image in Photoshop with round corners (PNG with alpha background) to give a more three dimensional look to the page.

unisphere

Hi, the [wide_bar] shortcode accepts an image background so you can start with that. Create an image that spans across the width of the main area and set it as a background of the wide bar.

Best regards

jerrylneal

Thanks much. I’ve tried that, but did not see where I could create a left and right margin for a narrow layout page. Is this possible?

jerrylneal

I’m close to what I want. Looks like enough flexibility in the shortcode to create what I need. thx

Would it be possible to make this theme compatible with SVG images? I’d like to use an svg image for my logo header so that it is scalable without pixelation or graininess. But when I put the SVG file URL in the theme settings for the logo header, it clears out the file path in the URL box upon clicking “save settings”...and the image doesn’t show up on the front end.

unisphere

Hi, in order to add your SVG image you’ll need to edit the header.php file. You can’t add the image via the admin panel. The part you should replace in the header.php file with your SVG code is this:

<?php if( isset( $unisphere_options['logo'] ) ) : ?>
    <img src="<?php echo $unisphere_options['logo'] ?>" alt="<?php bloginfo( 'name' ) ?>" />
<?php else : ?>
    <?php bloginfo( 'name' ) ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Hi there! Is there any way I can centre the logo? Rather have it top centered than on the left

unisphere

Hi, try to add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel and adjust the value as necessary:

#logo {
    margin-left: 500px;
}

Hi, I would like to filter the recent posts in the shortcode to filter only one of the posts categories (news) not the others how do I do this please?

Thanks – Sarah

unisphere

Hi Sarah, the [recent_posts] shortcode has a parameter named “cats” that can be used to filter the categories you want displayed, example:

[recent_posts cats="1,2,3"]

This parameter accepts a comma separated list of category ID’s (one or more) and to find out what is the ID of a specific category (news in your case), see this screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/K6QSsqzzfft

Best regards

hi, one more question. can i give my gallery space (margin) between the images? thanks for help, wistlaumann

unisphere

Hi, sure, try to add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

.gallery-item { 
    width: 18%;
    margin-right: 2.5%;
    margin-bottom: 2.5%;
}

.gallery-item:nth-child(5n) {
    margin-right: 0;
}

Best regards

pagination of the portfolio is not working . The number of pages appears but does not access the pages indicated

unisphere

Hi, try to go to “Settings » Permalinks” and just hit “Save Settings” to see if it works.

Hi, does this theme had the NON RESPONSIVE version and if so, does it fit well into the frame of the phone? Thanks!

Lee

unisphere

Hi Lee, the theme doesn’t provide the option to turn off the responsive feature out of the box although it can be done by commenting a couple of lines on a file (if you purchase the theme I’ll provide info on how to make this change of course). As to it fitting well on the frame of a phone, I can only say that it displays exactly like on the desktop so the user will have to zoom in to be able to read the content.

Dear Unisphere,

My Vanguard verification is not working on your support forum for my username GrannyAdmin.

Can you offer any advice of getting a higher Google Insights Site Speed Score, whilst using the Vanguard theme?

Thank you it is a great theme.

Kind regards,

unisphere

Hi, what error are you seeing on the forum when you try to add the verification code? You have probably already associated that verification with that user (or another user).

Regarding your question, my advice is to use a plugin like W3 Total Cache to speed up your website. This is a plugin that enables you to speed up many areas of your site through various techniques and I recommend reading about the plugin before using it.

Best regards

Hello, I’m updating content in a website that was built with your great theme. I see that there is a shortcode for youtube video that disply the video inside thepage. Is there a way to show youtube video in a lightbox? Thanks Michal

unisphere
Hi, yes you can use the [image] shortcode, here’s an example:
[image img="http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/wp-content/uploads/placeholders/210x125.jpg" url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0ky-VMi9fI&width=1280&height=720" alt="title"/]

Hi,

i just installed the theme and when trying to change the layout to narrow or background color it just reverts to the default when saved and reloaded:

Tried to restore to defaults, but it doesn’t make any difference.

Could you please help :)

Got it working myself..seems like WPML string translation plugin was interfering somehow..

Hello,

I’m having trouble using the LayerSlide.

The message “LayerSlider: jQuery Transit issue It looks like one of your other plugins Also uses jQuery Transit and loads an extra copy of this library Which can cause issues Please navigate on your WordPress admin area to edit this slider and enable the.” Put JS includes to body “option in your Global Settings under the Troubleshooting section.” is always showing.

The error itself (just like you here) gives an indication of what is needed to fix the problem, which is “Please navigate on your WordPress admin area to edit this slider and enable the” Put JS includes to body “option in your Global Settings under the Troubleshooting section. “

The problem is that the “Troubleshooting” does not appear to me. Accessed the “Global Settings”, open the settings of each slide and the option simply does not appear.

I appreciate the help as soon as possible.
