Steve from Googleplextech.com here. We have a glitch with our website that Bluehost cannot fix, saying it has to do with the theme (Vanguard.)
Any suggestions how I may make this message about a widget problem on line 3457 might be resolved and have the message go away?
Thank you. Happy weekend!
event though the call to the widget function is deprecated it still can be used. The reason you are seeing the notice is probably because you have DEBUG switched ON in the WordPress config which is a bad practice for production web sites. Edit your wp-config.php file in the root folder of your WordPress installation and look for the following line:
Set it to false.
I launched a website a few weeks ago using this theme, and I’m finding the page load speed is very slow. I make sure all of my images are optimized and are sized for web, and most of the content is currently just text. I do use the full width slider though. Any thoughts on how I can speed up page load time?
I should also note that I tried installing W3 Total Cache but it effected the layout of the website and I freaked out and uninstalled the plugin
Hi, I can’t think of any potential theme code that could slow down your site. Do you have any plugins installed? Could you post a link to your site so that I can take a look?
I have the plugins AGP Font Awesome Collection, Headers and Footers, WP Super Cache and of course, Akismet (by default). The url is http://www.eprtrillium.ca
I just deleted the AGP plugin and went from a 7-8 sec page load to 2.4!
Is there a way to customize the size and colour of the theme icons?
Hi, I’m afraid not.
How can we show a self hosted video as a banner?
The banner should be ==> sub-header + full-width + infinite loop
We can’t find any option in the “Layer Slider” how to insert a video file (.mp4).
How does it work? Please give us a hint.
Hi, the slider doesn’t support self hosted videos I’m afraid. My advice is to upload the video to either Youtube or Vimeo and then display it on the site.
Thanks for your suggestion. Well, for our purpose Youtube and Vimeo aren’t suitable. Therefore please check this option:
1 — we install another banner slider that supports self hosted videos (e.g. Revolution Slider) and create the banner
2 — afterwards we select the new banner slider and the new banner in the page settings here ===> “Vanguard Page Settings >> sub-header Slider”
Can we select the new banner slider and the new banner like this? Will the page show the new banner then?
Does this option work?
Hi, unfortunately this won’t work without changing some of the theme’s backend framework and CSS on the frontend I’m afraid.
How can we create a banner (sub header and full width) with a self-hosted video then?
Please tell us how to make it.
Can I exclude one blog post when I use the short code to display the blog posts
Hi, unfortunately this isn’t supported on the blog posts short code I’m afraid.
Where can I get short codes like buttons for my Vanguard Theme?
Hi, I’m not sure I understand your question, could you be more specific?
How can we create a banner (sub header + full width) with a self-hosted video ?
There are the following issues in your theme:
1.) “Layer Slider”
The “Layer Slider” (included in your theme) doesn’t support self-hosted videos. There are only Youtube and Vimeo supported. Actually the original plugin “Layer Slider” supports self-hosted videos but, however, your inbuilt version does not.
2.) “Sublime Video Player”
The “Sublime Video Player” is recommended by you in combination with your own inbuilt slider (called “Slider” by you). But this doesn’t work neither because “Sublime” required a registration and “Sublime” stopped to work (as you will know).
So what is the solution now? Please tell us.
The only way to add a video as a sub-header is if you add it to a slider since the “Sub-header” theme options only allow for text with an optional background image.
1) The LayerSlider version included in the theme is somewhat customised to be more user friendly and provide a more easier integration with the theme features. Maybe the current version does support self hosted videos officially while the one on the theme does not. However, this does not mean that you can’t add html5 videos, the LayerSlider included in the theme allows you to add HTML content to a slider as a layer and I believe that you can simply add the video as a <video> tag, example:
<video width="320" height="240" controls>
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
More info about it on this page: http://offlajn.com/blog/entry/2014/12/07/embedding-videos-to-layer-slider.html
2) I didn’t know that SublimeVideo stopped their work and discontinued the product. I’ll have to come up with an alternative. However this wouldn’t be a solution since the “normal” slider included in the theme that displays SublimeVideo videos requires at least 2 items in the slider to work, which wouldn’t be what you want to achieve here.
Hope point #1 helps.
I am still having issues with speed on my website. It’s http://eprtrillium.ca
I just purchased 2 months ago and I’m considering buying another theme because I can pin point the issue. I’ve done the caching updates/plugins but nothing is helping.
Do you have any tips to increase the site’s overall speed? Do other users have this issue?
