Hello!

Love the theme! I do have a couple of questions though about some options within the theme…. 1. Is there a way to incorporate a YouTube channel into the homepage that updates as you update the channel? So when they upload a new YouTube video, it updates to the site as well? 2. With the Skype Social Link… what is the correct way to implement this into the widget? I tried to add the link as: http://www.skype.com/username – but for some reason it didn’t link to a profile page.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

unisphere

Hi,

1) I’m afraid not, but maybe you can find a plugin that enables you to do that.

2) From reading a few articles it appears that skype doesn’t provide a web profile page for a specific user, although you can use the following site in order put a link in the social widget that will enable your users who use skype to call you: http://myskype.info/

I am trying to get a form pop up to work but don’t know code. Here is the code from the short code: [button text=”button text” size=”large” url=”#” /]

Here is my code for the pop up from jot form: NEON SUNGLASSES Order Form

Can you help me? I changed the form number so the form won’t open.

unisphere

Hi, could you post the form code using pastie.org because the themeforest comment system doesn’t show your code.

I was checking the blog posts with Google rich snippets tools and seems that some things are missing. Can you add that in the next update or tell me how to fix the following errors?

Warning: Missing required field "entry-title". Warning: Missing required field "updated". Warning: Missing required hCard "author .

Tks

Hi, I’ll try and fix this in the next update.

Is there a way to disable the portfolio image titles from linking to the portfolio item page? I just want the portfolio to display the images and let them open in lightbox.

unisphere

Hi, yes it’s possible although it requires a small change to a file. Could you tell me what portfolio template are you using, or better yet, could you link your portfolio page?

Best regards

unisphere

Hi, edit the file template_portfolio4columns.php and replace the following code on line 98:

<a class="portfolio-title" href="<?php echo !empty( $custom['_portfolio_link'][0] ) ? $custom['_portfolio_link'][0] : the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>

With this code:

<span class="portfolio-title"><?php the_title(); ?></span>

Thanks! One more question… On this page http://thecountertopcenter.com/pages/gallery/?preview=true&preview_id=263&preview_nonce=ee4ad7424c#!prettyPhoto

I have 4 galleries in tabs. The gallery that opens in a light box is under the “Stock Laminate Colors”. Is there a way to make all the other galleries open in a light box?

unisphere

Hi, that bug in the galleries was introduced with WordPress 3.5 and was fixed in the 1.3 theme update. I recommend updating your theme installation in order for this issue to not happen again.

I have a lightbox button on my home site and when it clicks off the lightbox or refreshes the home slider does not show up. Is there a way that I can fix that? Thank you. It’s on mbscthrive.com

unisphere

Hi, this will be fixed in the next update although meanwhile don’t worry about it, your users shouldn’t refresh the site after clicking a lightbox.

Hey, love your theme, but really need this to work:

How can I integrate “The Events Calendar” to show the correct heading in stead of it beeing replaced by the heading of the first event. Anyone who can point me in the right direction for fixing this?

Excellent if you can reply quickly. We are considering buying several more licenses. Thank you.

Komodo Inc

unisphere

Hi, please email me admin access to your WP admin area so that I can take a proper look. Also, link me the page where the heading is being replaced by the event title.

Keep in mind that I don’t support third party plugins, but I’ll see what I can do.

Hello Unisphere,

kind of simple question here, I can’t seem to find the logo scroller shortcode under the Vanguard options panel in the text editor, and I can’t seem to get it working myself. Where is it? Or what is the proper usage of the shortcode? Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, this shortcode was introduced in the 1.3 version update. If you don’t see it in the editor shortcode list you probably are running an older version. Try updating the theme and see of it appears.

Hello Guys! Love your theme, had a real blast putting my website together. A quick question though… How can I add a subtitle in the page title bar, without said subtitle appearing in the top menu? Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, glad you like the theme :)

I’m not sure I understand your question, could you be more specific or maybe post a screenshot of what you want to do?

Hi, thanks for getting back to me. I’d like my page title to have two lines (Title + subtitle) but I don’t want the subtitle of the page to appear in the menu.

e.g.:
Menu: SERVICES PRODUCTS PRICES

Page title:
SERVICES
What we can do for you

PRODUCTS
What we can sell you

PRICES
How much you will pay

Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, you can do that by creating a page called “Services” for example and then on the “Sub-header” toggle of the “Vanguard Page Settings” you can set the description “What we can do for you”.

Hi, I love this theme! but I can’t edit the style.css I need to change the body container to white so I have an all over black background but can’t see anywhere to do this please? Thanks – Sarah

unisphere

Hi Sarah, glad you like the theme :)

I’m not sure I understand your question correctly, but if what you want is to have a black background in the entire site you should add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

#superior-header-right .widget,
#header-container,
#slider-container,
#layer-slider-container.normal,
#content-container,
#sub-header-container.transparent-bg,
#sub-header-container.image-bg #breadcrumbs,
#secondary .widget .menu li.current-menu-item ul,
.blog-wide-image .post-meta,
.blog-detail .post-meta,
.small-title h3 { background-color: #000!important; }

Best regards

Default-user

Thank you for your help I pasted the code in but I still have white behind the logo, navigation and underneath the header … the background is black but not the body…is there something else I should do please? Thanks – Sarah

Default-user

I’m sorry yes this worked, I copied incorectly .. thank you very much…

Default-user

Just one last question as I am nearly finished! :-) because I have now a black background the icons in the account Superior-header Bar (right) are not showing as they are black ... please how can I change them to white… thanks for this fab theme and all your help/support too!!! Thanks – Sarah

unisphere

Hi Sarah, you can add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme options panel:

#superior-header-right .widget-social a.rss { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/rss_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.twitter { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/twitter_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.facebook { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/facebook_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.googleplus { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/googleplus_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.flickr { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/flickr_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.dribbble { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/dribbble_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.forrst { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/forrst_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.behance { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/behance_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.youtube { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/youtube_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.vimeo { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/vimeo_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.linkedin { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/linkedin_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}
#superior-header-right .widget-social a.skype { background: transparent url('XXXXXX/images/social_icons/skype_white.png') scroll no-repeat center center;}

Keep in mind that you should replace the ‘XXXXXX’ in each line of the above code with the theme path on your server. For example, the theme path on the demo site is:

http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/wp-content/themes/vanguard

How does this theme compare to your mural theme? Similar to install and use? You know I’m a big Mural fan? :)

unisphere

Hey buddy,

Well, the major difference is in the admin panel. As you know, Mural lets you customize almost every aspect of the theme in terms of colors, background images for different sections and it has the concept of “skin”, where you can create new skins, etc, and it has WooCommerce support also.

Vanguard is a much more simpler theme in terms of customization, although it allows quite a bit of customization in terms of colors and a body background image when using a boxed layout. Oh and Vanguard includes the awesome LayerSlider 3 which is a 15$ value.

Is it possible for the email sent from the contact page not to say wordpress in the subject? But to say the name of the sender? Thanks – Sarah

unisphere

Hi, by default WordPress sends email as “WordPress”. To change it you can install the following plugin to set your custom sender name: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/configure-smtp/

How do I import the dummy data over so I can more easily set up my website based on your main demo home page and other pages as well?

I’m very excited to get started with your theme. It’s the first one I have purchased by you and am looking forward to the finished product!!

unisphere

Hi, instructions on importing the demo data can be found on the page 5 of the provided documentation. You can find the docs by unziping the file you downloaded from ThemeForest and opening the documentation.pdf file.

Let me rephrase my question. I have imported the dummy data after deleting the pages I created and one post and now have no idea what happened. www.builduawebsite.com is my website and as you can see there is no dummy data….

Your help is greatly appreciated. :)

Hi, from your comment below I see that you’ve managed to sort it out :)

Never mind it works now! :) But where do I get my email and phone number at the top of every page like you have in your demo? So sorry about all the questions, this is my last one, I promise! :)

unisphere

Hi, from looking at your site I see that you’ve managed to set the email and phone :)

I just want to say I finished my website, and I think your theme is GREAT! I have purchased a few others for other people and yours by far is the best. The fact that you have a short code generator is genius and SO helpful to us non-coders out there. I will definitely buy from you again!! Much praise….I just wish I knew how to put a vertical line in the superior header bar right like you have in your demo. I tried a few things I found on the Internet, but nothing has worked. I was able to find some coding on how to change the text color, but no vertical line….

Again, KUDOS for the great theme and set up. Will guy from you again.

unisphere

Hi, thanks so much for your awesome testimonial, really appreciate it, I’m very happy you like the theme and were able to build a awesome site super fast :)

Regarding your question, that vertical line is called a “pipe” and you probably can find it on your keyboard hehe. If you can’t find it though, you can copy it from below and then paste it on the widget:

Hi, I uploaded a plugin and upon activating it the theme css breaks, to be more specific, I uploaded gravity forms and the theme css got all messed up.. When I deactivate the plugin it all goes back to normal. Any Idea why its doing that?

unisphere

Hi, that’s very strange. Could you email me admin access to your WP installation so that I can try and see the issue when activating the plugin?

Hi there,

Very nice looking theme, my purchase is reliant upon one thing however…is it possible in the sortable portfolio to sort by Category and Focus?

So I want for example, the user can choose to display only category “logo” and then refine their sorting by then choosing only to show items with focus “illustration” for example.

Hope this makes sense, and thanks very much!

unisphere

Hi, unfortunately that feature isn’t possible, you can only filter by category I’m afraid.

Olá! Primeiramente parabéns pelo tema, está espetacular!

Estou com um problema ao instalar o plugin contact-form-7.

Insiro o código numa pagina do meu site, e faço o teste de envio de formulário. Aparece enviado com sucesso, porém não recebo o email. Tenho este plugin instalado em outro site e funciona corretamente. Preciso modificar alguma configuração no tema?

Obrigado,

Abs,

unisphere

Olá FR, obrigado, ainda bem que gosta :)

Não me parece que o tema possa interferir com o funcionamento do plugin, no entanto coloque aí um link para o site que eu dou uma olhadela.

Abraço

Poisé, agora não está mais enviando o formulário.

Hi! Awesome theme! I’m having problems getting the localization to work on the theme. I’m sure I am doing something wrong.

My wordpress is configured to: define(‘WPLANG’, ‘es_PE’); in my theme folder I’ve added two files, both validated with POEdit, named: es_PE.po and es_PE.mo

However the theme is still displayed in english. Am I missing something? thanks!!!

Hi,

first of all thanks a lot for your great theme. I’ve never built a new website that easy!

Anyway, could you please explain how to use the new accordion shortcode/feature. Is it part of the toggle short code or which parameters do I have to use? Unfortunately, I do cannot see an additional entry in shortcode manager…

Thanks in advance, Sebastian

unisphere

Hi Sebastian, if you’ve updated to version 1.3 of the theme you should be seeing the accordion sample in the shortcode manager (first option). If you don’t try clearing your browser’s cache.

Anyway, to use the accordion shortcode you just have to wrap toggles with [accordion] without any parameters, example:

[accordion]
...
toggles
...
[/accordion]

Best regards
