With this change the Easy Modal does not work properly. The modal is not generated.

Any other idea?

unisphere

Hi, in that case please revert the change to the Easy Modal plugin. Edit the LayerSlider theme file in /wp-content/themes/vanguard/LayerSlider/init.php and comment or remove the following code (line 104 on my file):

else if(typeof lsjQuery.transit == "undefined" || typeof lsjQuery.transit.modifiedForLayerSlider == "undefined") { lsShowNotice(\'layerslider_'.$id.'\', \'transit\'); }

Hi, when I click the Vimeo shortcode tab it clicks a box that says no items found? what do I need to do please to make this work ….please?

Thanks – Sarah

Default-user

Hi yes it’s when you want to add vimeo through the videos shortcut?It says no Items found … I can’t post the link as it’s not published… Thanks – Sarah

unisphere

Hi Sarah,

I think I know where the problem is, the new vimeo videos have an extra digit on the video ID so I’ll have to provide an update to the theme. Meanwhile you can edit the file /library/shortcodes.php and on line 812 replace the following code:

preg_match('"^http://vimeo\\.com/(?<videoId>[A-Za-z0-9_-]{7,8})"', $url, $matches);

With:

preg_match('"^http://vimeo\\.com/(?<videoId>[A-Za-z0-9_-]{7,9})"', $url, $matches);

Best regards

Hi thanks, but it still says no item found … do you have any info on how to add video by shortcode please. I can’t see it in the documentation. Thanks – Sarah

Hi,

Its me again! I have created Galleries with photos but I do not have control of how many pictures per column, even if I choose different layout, example: tiles, rectangular, etc., it would still display the same. I also installed Jetpack to use their Carousel feature, however, regardless whether it is activated or not, I think the Mural overwrites the Gallery settings in such way that I do not have any control over it.

I cannot send you the screen shot from the backend set up for the gallery. But the only options I get there when I go to Edit Gallery or Create Gallery are: Link to: Attachment Page, Media File, None Random order Type: Thumbnail Grid, Tiled Mosaic, Sqaire Tiles, Circles,Slideshow

Regardless what type I use, it would always the the same – have a look at the site.

Here’s the link to 2 galleries that I have now: http://elsbeautyacademy.com/our-classes/ —It looks ugly as for some reason it doesn’t create thumbnails, simply makes the pictures smallerand those pictures have different sizes.

http://elsbeautyacademy.com/first-works-by-our-students/ —here i had to manually adjust the size of all pictures to be the same in order to look ok.

If it is a preset from Mural, how can I delete it? What would be the work around? I am using the latest version of WP.

Thank you,

Olga

Hello, I’m trying to add a BBpress forum to the website built with this great theme, I managed to open a new forum but when I add topics to the forum I keep getting a message that no topics were added to the forum, I’t worked fune with another theme. Please help. Thanks Michal

Default-user

I need to add a forum to the website, what forum do you recommend to use. Thanks

unisphere

Hi, in the future please post questions using the ThemeForest account that was used to purchase the theme so that I can verify the purchase.

I’m afraid the theme doesn’t include any code to make it compatible with BBpress unfortunately.

Hi,

I did purchase the Mural long time ago! I have created Galleries with photos but I do not have control of how many pictures per column, even if I choose different layout, example: tiles, rectangular, etc., it would still display the same.

Hello,

I think I’ve understood a bit how your theme worked now :) Great theme by the way.

To have a nice and big picture on the top of the page (as in your “Contact” demo page), I always creates slider but with only 1 slide (Is that the correct way to do so?)

Only think I can’t figure is how to make the Breadcrumb appear on pages that have a sub-slider.

Example like this : http://awesomescreenshot.com/0f13ybfm41

Thank you.

Hi there,

Thanks, it works but I have one last problem now :

- I think the arrow in your screenshot is not correct. I understand the “override the sub-header title” but what if I don’t want anything but just the image (with no text overriding it) ? How should I do it ?

Thank you very much for your help.

unisphere

Hi, you are correct, I mistakenly pointed to the title input override. The field that you should add the numeric value to override the sub-header height is the 3rd text field labeled “Override the sub-header height”.

Hi, loving your theme so far :)

I have a question about portfolio gallery images – is there a way to mange them (to change to order of the pictures and to remove once they have been added via add media into the body). As i understand i have to remove them from the body after i insert them but no further customization seems possible.

Thanks in advance.

Hey, thanks for the answer.

Yes i get that part now, but it seems there is still no way to edit the pictures (remove, reorder) after a portfolio post has been published.

unisphere

Hi, just click the “Add media” button again to manage the images attached to the portfolio item, see screenshot on specific details: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7WKXRqIiripdE0yMXlBZnpxRVE/edit?usp=drivesdk

Hi. I have created a ‘home’ page using your awesome shortcodes. The page renders the code perfectly and beautifully—UNTIL the page is selected in Settings>Reading as the static front page (or via theme settings).

The problem is, as soon as the page is selected in Settings>reading or via the theme options, all of the code breaks and the page is blank as you can see here: theinjurycoach.co.uk. It also adds a comment box (which isn’t wanted).

I have tested this with the page both in and out of the main menu so menu selection isn’t breaking this particular page (and shortcodes are working fine on other pages).

I’ve deleted and recreated the page several times and this continues to happen. Please can you advise? Thank you!

Hey again :)

Question about the logo scroller. I installed it and copied/pasted the one you had on your demo. It seemed to work but I’d rather have it “not moving” because it seems to use a lot of ressources from the website (according to the website speed test). Is there a way to have it as a “fixed” banner ?

What else would you advise to have logo displayed horizontally ?

Best regards,

unisphere

Hi, the logo scroller shortcode has a parameter named “pauseTime” where you can set the number of milliseconds between each scroll (default is 3000 which is 3 seconds). You can increase this number to say 300000 (300 seconds) and it will appear as static.

Best regards

Oh ok perfect.

There’s something I don’t get. How do you have this grey/grid background behind ? I can’t figure to put it there and everytime I copy/past it from your example it bugs :(

unisphere

Hi, are you referring to the wide bar with a repeatable background pattern? If so you should use the following shortcode and add your content inside:

[wide_bar paddingTop="20" paddingBottom="20" marginBottom="0" bgImage="http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/noisy_grid.png" bgRepeat="repeat" bgPosition="center center" whiteText="true"]

Content...

Hi there,

When I uploaded the Vanguard zip to my wordpress site the upload began as usual but then I received this error…

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare layerslider_load_lang() in /home/aokitco/public_html/flotech/wp-content/themes/vanguard/LayerSlider/layerslider.php on line 100

I now cannot even access the admin at all as attempting to get to the login page just takes me to a blank page with the same error.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

unisphere

Hi, that error seems to be caused by your WordPress installation already having the LayerSlider plugin installed and activated. The theme bundles the plugin so my advice is to remove the plugin in /wp-content/plugins/ folder. Since you say that you can’t login to WordPress you’ll probably need to FTP into your server and remove this folder.

Hey !

SEO questions :

1) I set the meta description in the CSS, it appears on the source code. However, when I type my website on Google, google takes the text from the Home Page testimonial to display instead of my meta description. Any idea why ?

2) How do I display my different sections like below my title and descriptiom. Sometimes, bloggs have “About me”, “Services” and other sections, displaying on the same “block”

Thank you for your answers !

unisphere

Hi,

1) Having some text as a meta description doesn’t always get picked up by google search results. I don’t know their criteria but this may help: http://moz.com/blog/why-wont-google-use-my-meta-description

2) I’m not sure I understand, could you be more specific or maybe provide an example screenshot?

Best regards

1) Thanks, that’s what I thought but wasn’t sure.

2) I meant the sitelinks that appear under the main URL. Made some research, and we can ONLY define the ones we want to be demoted, following this link : http://www.hmtweb.com/marketing-blog/how-to-demote-sitelinks-google-webmaster-tools

Not the ones but we want to appear :(

Thanks for your answer.

Hey,

Design questions :

1) I’m about to add our logo on the top left of our home page. How can I lower the main slider or sub-header to have the logo in a much wider space ? Can I have a long sentence above the slider ?

2) How can I write a title/sentence INSIDE a picture that’s included in the slider ?

THANKS !

Default-user
avonburg Purchased

Sure, can I write you an MP ?

Or is there another way to put a picture that is the same size that the slider instead ?

Hi Just Bought the theme. I am following all the steps in the guide, but my pages, importing the dummy data, only show the html code, not the design. I installed it in a clean install. Tried to verify the purchase on your forum, but it appears to be invalid.

unisphere

Hi, sorry for the late response.

Are you still experiencing issues with the design not being applied?

Hey, i have another question regarding portfolio detail page and related work displayed there.

At the moment it seems related work is showing items from all categories (i have 2 sets of categories for portfolio – for construction building type and for service type, the last shows related work in my services page via shortcodes and cat ID).

Is it possible to display only items in that have been set to be shown in that page (in the portfolio main page settings – i dont want to show work based on my secondary categories ).

Thanks for your help in advance ;)

unisphere

Hi, the related work in the portfolio section displays items from the same categories that the current portfolio item displayed is assigned to. I wasn’t able to replicate the issue that you describe on my local installation. Could you email me admin access to your WP installation so that I can take a proper look? (Also mention what pages and categories should be displayed and where).

Hi, it is ok to update to 4.1? thank you

unisphere

Hi, I’ve just tested WP 4.1 and everything appears fine. However, as with any update I highly recommend making a full backup of your WP installation files and database just in case something goes wrong.

Boa tarde, João!

Comprei o tema contigo há um bom tempo. Pois agora preciso adicionar uma página no meu site e esqueci alguns shortcodes. Então, ao invés de usar a página de texto HTML para criar, alternei à página de visualização. Porém, notei que aquele ícone “V” não está mais disponível.

Existe algum lugar onde posso conferir todos os shortcodes diretamente em HTML?

Obrigado!

unisphere

Olá Diego,

Tens o tema atualizado para a ultima versão? O icone “V” sofreu alterações com o WP 4.0 e precisei de um update ao tema para que essa funcionalidade voltasse a funcionar.

Abraço

Hi there. We are currently running Vanguard on Wordpress 4.1. Recently (not sure exactly when) we noticed a few of our pages not displaying properly. We/I make changes periodically and it’s usually one small change at a time. The page we are having the biggest headache is http://thecountertopcenter.com/our-services/ . I’m not sure if it’s a code that is bad or maybe our host (godaddy.com) or what. Please, can somebody help? Thanks in advance.

Hi, please post questions using the ThemeForest account that was used to purchase the theme so that I can verify the purchase.
