Discussion on Vanguard: Business & Portfolio WordPress Theme

612 comments found

I recently downloaded the most recent theme and updated the /wp-content/themes/vanguard/ files& folders via FTP. I am not seeing changes and Wordpress is still telling me that I’m not on the current theme.

There is a new version of the Vanguard theme available. You have version 1.3 installed. Update to version 1.6.2

I have tried purging the home page cache, is there something else I should be doing ?

Thanks in advance.

It seems to have been a cache issue.

Hi again. I’ve encountered a small problem: if I put a vanguard slider in the page: [slider animSpeed=”500” pauseTime=”5000” numberSlides=”10” cats=”cat-home” /] it is not only the category ‘cat-home’ that’s being displayed. I’ve tried the category name and the category slug. What am I doing wrong?

Hi, the slider shortcodes doesn’t allow for a category slug, it requires a category ID instead. 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, see this screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/K6QSsqzzfft

Great, thanks! I really didn’t think of that one. Hope I’m not the first.

Hi there,

I downloaded a Master Slider Plugin and created a slider. But even after pasting its shortcode, the slider would not appear. It’s not working. Pls help. Thanks.

You can see the shortcode here http://max-groups.com/test-page/

Hi, could you email me admin access to your WP installation so that I can take a proper look?

Hi, Where can I change the footer copyright texts as well as the email & phone number at the very right top corner.

For some reasons, none of them show up :http://www.emcglassbd.com/

and i cannot find the options under theme option either.

Thanks

Hi, go to “Appearance » Widgets” and add text widgets with that info to the “Superior-header” and “Footer bar” widget areas.

I have set up a custom sidebar and applied it to the blog section (with multiple categories) of my site. The sidebar shows up on the actual post pages within that blog; however, the default sidebar shows up on the category archive pages (instead of the custom sidebar. I’ve tried adjusting and playing with every setting I can find. However, nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. This is just one little glitch I’ve come across) this is an awesome theme!

Nevermind this …. I was able to get it to work by using jetpack’s widget visibility function. Thanks!

Hi there, on the blog all of the posts appear on the same page (infinite scroll?). Is there anyway to display say 20 then have other pages to view for older posts?

I tried to install the theme on my wordpress (3.8.5). I had sterling theme installed there. I initially had WordPress telling me that it couldn’t install the theme due to problems with style.css file. I went through faq and as suggested used Installable WordPress files only. The theme installed successfully (at least this was the information on the screen). Next thing – I have no website and no access to admin panel.

I’ve tried other browsers – nothing there.

I’ve got no idea what to do.

Please help ASAP.

Many thanks,

Jay

I checked with my host provider and they found the following error:

PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare layerslider_load_lang() (previously declared in /home/nbsweb/public_html/wp-content/plugins/LayerSlider/layerslider.php:101) in /home/nbsweb/public_html/wp-content/themes/vanguard/LayerSlider/layerslider.php on line 102

Hi, it appears that there’s a conflict between the LayerSlider plugin that is already bundled with the theme and the one installed as a plugin from the previous theme.

My advice is to FTP into your server and delete the LayerSlider plugin in /wp-content/plugins/LayerSlider

This should fix the conflict.

Best regards

Great theme! I have a question though. How do i get rid of the sidebar on the home page?

Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, I see that you’ve managed to set the Home page as a full-width page.

Hi.

Love the theme.

I can use custom sidebar in a single blog post.

But I cant figure out how to use custom sidebar in a blog category.

Thanks.

unisphere

Hi,

Unfortunately you can’t set custom sidebars in blog category pages I’m afraid. The archive pages all show the “Main sidebard” widgets.

Hello, how are you?

With this theme I can create multiple independent portfolios?

Example:

Site Menu:

- Portfolio 1: Product Category A, Product Category B, Product Category C

- Portfolio 2: Product Category X, Product Category Y, Product Category Z

- Portfolio 3: Product Category F, Product Category G, Product Category H

And within each category, several products in the portfolio with the possibility of filters them.

Thank you.

unisphere

Hi, yes you can, exactly as you described them.

Best regards

Is it okay to update to WordPress 4.2? I am running this theme on 2 sites. Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, from my exploratory tests I couldn’t see any issue. Before updating create a full backup of your WordPress installation files and a database backup just in case something goes wrong.

Best regards

I am having problems with the main menu sliding behind the logo when the page is resized. How do I correct this problem?
