Hi there

Wondering if you have a fix for the added visible code seen when using the mobile version of the theme. I’ve put some mobile screen shots of my site here http://brandlogik.com/screen-shots/ that shows the issue. It obviously disappears when you go to ‘View full screen’.

Thanks Eugene

Hi Eugene,

from those screenshots it appears that either you have a plugin that is enabling some sort of mobile mode or your hosting is doing that for you. I’m saying this because the theme doesn’t have anything in place that displays a “View full screen” link, the way it handles mobile is by the use of CSS media queries to adapt the content to the device’s width.

Hi, I have a question regarding the Contact Page Template. The menu disappears on the Contact page when viewed on mobile. This issue only occurs on this particular page and only on mobile. It is visible on the browser. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated. You can view the site at the demo link: http://krachtlaw.teknarus.com/contact/

Thanks, Caitlin

Hi Caitlin,

it appears that the Google Maps that you are adding to the contact page sidebar is causing a javascript error, which causes the menu issue. If you are trying to add a map using a WP plugin, try using a different one.

Hey for the unisphere social widget I wanted to know how can I change the color to the original Social media colors?

Plus for the background when I play with the setting for exemple (bottom venter, to top center) or (fixed or scrolable image) it doesnt change it stay fixed and on the same position. How can I fixed it?

and sorry I forget to ask can we make the footer widget invisible so we can show the background image with writing?

unisphere

Hi,

1) You’ll need to manually edit and change the social icon images in a photo editing app (Photoshop for example). The social icon images are located in the folder /images/social_icons.

2) The “Full page global background image” is displaying the positioning controls by mistake, the theme always try to center it and adjust it to the visible browser screen. If you want control over the positioning then use the filed right above it labeled “Body container background image”.

3) I’m afraid not.

Hi there, I just purchased and downloaded the theme, but cannot install it. Error message I get is that the file style.css is missing in the archive. What can I do? Thanks in advance

Default-user

Hi, is it possible to get an answer as the installation is rather urgent, thanks in advance

unisphere

Hi, that’s the default install behavior for ThemeForest themes. Luckily there’s and easy fix, please take a look at the following tutorial: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/269

Hi, Is there a way in which I can keep the images to open in the light box if loaded in the same page and open portfolio detail page instead of attachment url when opened in a new tab ??

unisphere

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

How do you adjust the video to fit into the window of the computer monitor – we have our own video we are trying to use – but no luck…

unisphere

Hi, could you post a link to the page that contains the vide so that I can take a proper look?

Hi – is there a way I can use a portfolio image and when clicked a lightbox pops out displaying text ? Cant work it out….

Many thanks

Alex

Hi Alex,

adding that to a portfolio image isn’t easy since the portfolio items automatically setup image interaction (in other words, when clicking a thumbnail it opens a bigger image). One thing you can do though is inside the portfolio item detail page use a combination of shortcodes that open text when clicking an image:

[lightbox url="#inline-content-1"][image img="http://breeze.unispheredesign.com/wp-content/uploads/placeholders/280x110.jpg" /][/lightbox]
<div id="inline-content-1" style="display: none;">
    <p><strong>What is Lorem Ipsum?</strong></p>
    <p>Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.</p>
</div>

keep in mind that this needs to be added to the main description field in HTML mode.

Hello!

Perhaps I’m missing something – but where do we turn on the boxed layout? I’m not seeing this in the theme options.

Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, it’s the first option when you can to the Skins Manager (narrow layout).

Best regards

Hi there,

Great theme, thanks. I’m trying to slow the dropdown menu down when the mouse moves off it. I believe the js option I need to change is ‘delay:xxx’.

I’ve tried editing:

- js/scripts.js - js/screen.js

But no joy! I need it to be 1200ms rather than 0ms.

Help greatly appreciated!

Default-user

any idea on this one?

unisphere

Hi, this was a tricky one.

What is happening is that even though the script is indeed trying to delay the menu from hiding, the CSS is hiding it instantly. I believe that the following code will solve the issue. Try to add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

.nav ul { top: auto!important; }
.nav ul ul { top: 0!important; }

Obviously keep the value 1200 on the delay property.

Best regards

works perfect! thanks ever so much, spent ages trying to nail it!

keep up the good work.

I’m showing the 4 recent post at the bottom of my home page using:

[recent_posts title= numberPosts=”4” numberWords=”40” /]

Is there a way to show a 100px x 100px thumbnail with the posts?

unisphere

Hi, the [recent_posts] shortcode already grabs any featured image attached to the post. Do you want this image to appear smaller (100×100px)? If so please post a link to your site so that I can take a proper look.

Hi, it is safe to update to wordpress 4.0?

unisphere

Hi, I’ve tested the theme with WP 4.0 and found no issue so I would say it’s safe to update. However, it’s always a good idea to make a full backup of your WP site files and database just in case something goes wrong.

Best regards

I’m having a problem with this widget on the front page:

[recent_posts title="" numberPosts="4" numberWords="16" /]

Here’s my site: http://www.starbase118.net/ (The widget is listed as “Community News” on this page, about 3/4 of the way down.)

Here’s an example: http://i.imgur.com/oYjxkW8.png

For some reason, whenever there’s a “strong” tag in the first news item that appears, even if that tag is closed, it makes the text in all the other items appear as bolded.

unisphere

Hi, this happens because the second post (http://www.starbase118.net/2014/september-fleetwide-ooc-chat/) breaks half way a string that is bold and bleeds to the 3rd and 4th posts.

To fix this edit the file /library/misc.php and look for the following line:

$allowed_tags = '<p>,<a>,<strong>'; /*** Add the allowed HTML tags separated by a comma. ***/</strong></a></p>

Replace it with:

$allowed_tags = '<p>,<a>'; /*** Add the allowed HTML tags separated by a comma. ***/</a></p>

Hello, Great theme. How can I implement a retina ready logo into the theme? I’ve tried uploading a double sized logo and then tried resizing it with css with no success. Can you help me please?

unisphere

Hi, uploading a double size logo and resizing with CSS should do the trick. Upload your @2x logo and set it, then link me your site and I’ll provide some CSS to properly size it.

Best regards

Default-user

Done, here is a link to a staging site. http://www.staging2.bigshouldercreative.com/

unisphere

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

#logo img { max-height: 65px; }

Hi!

Need to know …. this theme good for a WP newbie? For individual / corporate wellness site. E-commerce, calendar to added later.

No CSS knowledge. Zip.

Also … can blog be featured on HOME page in one column, with other columns?

Thanks and await your kind (and fast) reply!

Scarlett

unisphere

Hi Scarlett,

I would say the theme is pretty easy to work with yes. A newbie shouldn’t have too much trouble setting up the a site with this theme (no coding required). However, there isn’t support for an e-commerce plugin out of the box I’m afraid.

Any page you see on the theme demo can be set as the home page.

Best regards

Hello, I love your theme and have had it for over a year now. I would like to embed a button on the top right of the home page to redirect to another site. I’m stuck though. Can you please advise? I’m currently using a full width slider.

unisphere

Hi, you can create a custom menu (Appearance » Menus) and create a menu item that links to a custom external link.

“Hi, just edit the blog page and change the sub-header description on the “Vanguard Page Settings”.

Hello, I saw your response above to change blog sub header but can’t actually find where the Page Settings are? Sorry, can you help? I’d like to do the same thing.

unisphere

Hi, just edit the blog page and see screenshot: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7WKXRqIiripeHpBdkdOUk1LYjQ/edit?usp=drivesdk
