Hi, Question about Footer Column widgets: On desktop browsers all of my Footer Column Titles show correctly, but on mobile browsers (or if you size desktop browser windows so that they are narrow), the Titles of Footer Columns 2 and 4 disappear. Is there a way to make it so this doesn’t happen? Thank you

unisphere

Hi, could you post a link to your site so that I can take a proper look at the issue?

Best regards

Default-user

Sure it’s http://www.exerurgentcare.com . If you resize the browser window you can see the Footer Column Titles disappear, then reappear as you make it still smaller, then disappear again as you make it still smaller.

unisphere

Hi,

You have made some changes to the mobile.css file which are causing these issues, particularly this line of code:

#footer-widgets #footer-column-2 .widget-title, #footer-widgets #footer-column-4 .widget-title { display:none; }

If you remove this then the default behaviour should be back to normal.

Best regards

Hi there, I am having some problems with the theme…

The site is installed here: http://virtualsupportuk.co.uk/vsuk but as you can see there are parts of the theme that are broken. I am not able to select the fonts, and the menu and sidebar isnt working properly.

Could you help please?

unisphere

Hi, try going to “Vanguard » Skins Manager” and click the “Restore Defaults” button. Then click the “Save Options” and see if the styling is correct.

Best regards

Hi,

I have a problem with translating the theme. As read on the manual I have created a .po file names nl_NL (dutch) to translate the theme to dutch. My WP installation is already installed in dutch.

When i copy the new .po file to the theme language folder nothing happens. I have tried everything even changing and deleting the default file. The language (contact form etc) remain english.

Could you please help me with this?

Kind regards, Nesem www.sbodiensten.nl

unisphere

Hi Nesem,

you’ll need to compile the PO file into an MO file. To do that you can use a free app named “POEdit” for example. This process is documented step by step in the provided theme PDF documentation.

Help! I love this theme and have worked with it quite a bit over the past year but two things just happened: One it no longer shows up as purchased for some reason so I have not been able to update it. And two I just updated wordpress and 4 plugins and the whole theme has crashed …

“Fatal error: Call to undefined function dynamic_sidebar() in /home/nk2got5/public_html/2013/wp-content/themes/vanguard/library/widgets.php on line 182”

http://1k2go.com/2013/

I wasn’t aware I had done anything too crazy or detrimental. Thanks in advance.

Default-user

In addition to that when I click on widgets – everything is gone that was in use on the right side of my window, and I can’t click on any widget on the left … no clue what’s happened with the wordpress update.

Default-user

Sorry to add more but I figured the more information you have the better. Under all the pages in the editor the Vanguard icon is gone as well :(

Default-user

I posted my question on your forums where you can answer instead where it has me listed as having purchased the theme.

Hi,

I have a question and hope you can help me. Could you please provide me some quidance with one issue I have?

I would like to have the shortcode: big-title displayed in H1 and to show just like the shortcode: small-title.

I have found the libs like you told me earlyer and changed it into this:

$output = ‘ ’; $output .= ‘ ’; $output .= ‘

’ . $title . ‘

’;

That is exactly the same code as the small-title:

$output = ‘ ’; $output .= ‘

’ . $title . ‘

’; $output .= ‘ ’; $output .= ‘ ’;

But when I upload the file, the big-title does not display like the small-title with the color bar behind the text (see: http://www.sbodiensten.nl/facilitaire-diensten/dagelijkse-schoonmaak/). The text is bigger and in H1 with no color bar.

My question is how can i reproduce the small-title settings for the big-title with the same font size and color bar in h1? I tried to find the css but could not find any.

Could you please help me with this? That would be great, this is one thing I must do to complete my website and go live.

Kind regards, Nesem

unisphere

Hi Nesem,

the easiest approach would be to transform the small title shortcode into an H1 tag instead of and H3. To do that edit the shortcodes.php file and replace the following code:

/**
 * Small Title Shortcode
 */
function unisphere_title_small_shortcode($atts) {
    extract(shortcode_atts(array(        
        "title" => "" 
    ), $atts));

    $output  = '<div class="small-title">';
    $output .= '<h3>' . $title . '</h3>';
    $output .= '<div class="long-bar" />';
    $output .= '</div>';

    return $output;
}

With this code:

/**
 * Small Title Shortcode
 */
function unisphere_title_small_shortcode($atts) {
    extract(shortcode_atts(array(        
        "title" => "" 
    ), $atts));

    $output  = '<div class="small-title">';
    $output .= '<h1>' . $title . '</h1>';
    $output .= '<div class="long-bar" />';
    $output .= '</div>';

    return $output;
}

Then you’ll need to make a small change to the CSS in order to address the new H1 tag. Add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

.small-title h1 { 
    padding: 0 13px 0 0; 
    margin: 0; 
    display: inline; 
    background-color: #fff; 
    font-size: 18px; 
    line-height: 30px; 
    font-weight: normal;
}

Best regards

Hi thank you for your help. I manage to do this for the small-title. It works perfect. But I still have one more wish. Since you can only have one H1 from a seo point of view. I would like to have the same style in H2 as I have now for the small-title.

I have tried to do the same you wrote to the big-title. The only thing that changes is the h2 and font size. I don’t get the long-bar and normal fonts like I have now with the small-title.

Could you once again help me with this?

Kind regards, Nesem

Could you please detail how I can set the Destination Email so emails come to me when a user types a message and clicks Send Message on the CONTACT template page.

Hello, my site sportsapp.net.au is using a Twitter widget but it doesn’t seem to be updating with my twitter posts. Can you help?

unisphere

Hi, from looking at your site I see that you are using version 1.4 of the theme. Twitter has updated their API and you should update the theme to the latest version in order to get the Twitter widget working with the new API.

Hi!

I saw this in the demo content: [testimonial url=”http://www.google.com/”

What does that URL parameter do? I have checked the source code but it doesn’t contain that link.

Thanks for your help!

unisphere

Hi,

the “url” parameter doesn’t actually do anything in the Vanguard theme, it’s a copy/paste typo from another theme that I have for sale.

Hi!

I’d like to know how to stop the sub-header-slider (normal option) on mouseover.

Thanks Best regards

Nicolas

unisphere

Hi Nicolas,

I’m not sure if with this change you’ll find some issues with the slider, especially if you have videos in it, in other words, I can’t guarantee that it will work without any issue.

Edit the theme file /js/screen.js and replace the following code on line 515:

fx: 'fade',

With this:

fx: 'fade',
pause: 1,

Best regards
