Hey there,

I am looking forward to using this theme, but before I purchase I would like to know – Does this theme function well within Wordpress Multisite?

Let me know – thank you!

unisphere

Hi, yes it’s compatible with WP multisite.

Greetings. My site loads really slow. Do you have any recommendations or advice on how to analyze the problem? My address. www.3dpromotions.com

unisphere

Hi, your site is loading in less than a second for me. Maybe the problem is the routing between your ISP and the web server.

Hi, GREAT THEME! Thanks. Can you assist me with one issue please: Here (http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com) you have a superior header with e.g. e-mail and phone number at the very top of the page – can I edit this in the theme, I could not find it, thanks!

unisphere

Hi, from your comment below I see that you’ve found a way of adding widgets to the superior-header.

Beautiful theme developed by an inspirational person and a brillant example to those who intend to be of service to their customers. João gave me a free and quick key support after I purchased the vanguard theme. Thanks again João! Ciré from Senegal.

unisphere

Thanks Ciré for your awesome testimonial, really appreciate it :)

Hey there,

The “Upload” buttons in the Theme Options are not sized properly. I just wanted to know if this is normal for the theme or did something go wrong during the install? I installed via FTP.

Here is a screenshot of the skewed buttons: http://wel-donelandscaping.com/vanguard-theme-options.png

unisphere

Hi, the “Upload” buttons need a styling fix for WP 3.5.1, expect an update this week that fixes this and other minor bugs.

sub-header-bar on posts – in settings I’ve set it to “don’t display” in the archives. Is there any way to set it to “don’t display” by default on new posts? I am setting up for my client and need to make posting as few steps as possible.

unisphere

Hi, yes you can but it will affect posts, pages and portfolio items. If running version 1.3 of the theme you can edit the file /library/custom-fields.php and replace the following code on line 496:

"std" => "solid-bg",

With this:

"std" => "",

Hello I really like this theme. It has great options. Question on the Home Page Example 5, is there a way to have 8 Portfolio categories instead of 3?

Thanks, Charlie

unisphere

Hi, in the home example 5 it displays a 3 column portfolio with just 3 items. You can have a [portfolio] shortcode that displays the latest 8 most recent portfolio items in 4 columns.

Greetings! Please look at this link. http://www.3dpromotions.com/specials/ How do I tighten up the padding between WHY ARE THESE ITEMS ON SPECIAL and BROWSE? There is a big white space I want to reduce.
unisphere

Hi, add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the theme options panel:

.portfolio-content { padding-bottom: 0!important; padding-top: 20px; }
#portfolio-filter-container { margin-top: 10px!important; }

Hi There,

Is it possible to include a playlist with the sublime player on a portfolio page?

unisphere

Hi, unfortunately that’s not possible I’m afraid.

Olá, estou adorando a sua template mas percebi que na versão 1.3 os novos shortcodes como o “testimonials scroller” e o “logo scroller”não estão no menu “insert shortcode”

unisphere

Olá, repondi ao sei tópico no forum :)

Hi Unisphere,

I just created a page in order to show my posts alongside a subscription widget in the sidebar on the right: http://www.yourbest.nl/?page_id=1893

Is it correct that the theme only allows for 2 posts next to each other when using the sidebar, or is there a workaround to display 3 posts next to each other. There seems to be sufficient space for three posts.

Many thanks en congratulations on this great piece of work! Yvo

unisphere

Hi, that bug got fixed in update 1.3. I see that you are running version 1.2 so I recommend updating to the latest version in order to the 3 posts to line up correctly.

Hi again! I am trying to set up a portfolio page, but the page settings will not display any of the portfolio categories. It just says : ‘If this page uses a Portfolio page template, then set the categories to be displayed’ Can you please help me? Thx!

unisphere

Hi, from your comment below I see that you’ve managed to get it working.

Hi,

Related to my previous question:

Are there more ways of presenting posts on a page? At this moment posts are presented e.g. as a picture with its’ text underneath it and one post next to the other. Is it also possible to present posts e.g. as a picture with its’ text next to it and one post underneath the other?

Thanks! Best regards

unisphere

Hi, I’m afraid not, that’s the current only way of displaying posts. I might add more options in the future though.

Hi,

I am trying to change the size of the youtube video.

This is what I have attempted.

[video type=”youtube” url=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1wPWv41aI0” width=”300” height=”169”/]

The video size doesn’t change. What am I doing wrong?

Also , I want to be able to change the size of the testimonial slider. What should I be doing to make this possible?

Ideally I will have – The Youtube video on the left of the screen and the testimonial slider (as a set size) on the right.

unisphere

Hi, the [video] shortcode shouldn’t have a width and an height property since its width and height are proportionally sized to the container’s size. It’s like this in order to make it responsive and the testimonial scroller behaves exactly the same way.

Try adding the following code to your page and you’ll see 2 columns with the video on the left and testimonials on the right (filling the 100% width of the columns):

[one_half]

[video type="youtube" url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1wPWv41aI0" /]

[/one_half]
[one_half_last]

[testimonial_scroller effect="fade" animSpeed="500" pauseTime="5000"]
[testimonial person="John Doe"]
Sagittis fringilla, massa et nunc. Fusce sollicitudin eros non mauris convallis gravida. Aenean fringilla magna eu nulla euismod id tincidunt tortor adipiscing. Vestibulum elementum quam ac lacus mollis.
[/testimonial]

Hi,

I need help with two things:

1. I would like to get the ‘Read more’ buttons and the page number buttons to appear below each blog post in the half image option. As per your demo. How do I do this?

2. I only want a small snippet of content to appear under each blog image and title. So that viewers need to click ‘read more’ to find out more. What is the best way to do this?

Thanks for your help! The website is really coming along nicely – love the templates!!

unisphere

Hi, you can use the WordPress “more” tag in order to break the posts into a summary and add the “read more” buttons, more info here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

Hey, i’m trying to change de logo position.

I took de skin.php and change:

/* The logo / #logo { margin-top: <?php echo ( !empty( $unisphere_options[‘skin_logo_top_margin’] ) ? $unisphere_options[‘skin_logo_top_margin’] : ‘50’ ); ?>px; }

to:

/ The logo */ #logo { margin-top: <?php echo ( !empty( $unisphere_options[‘skin_logo_top_margin’] ) ? $unisphere_options[‘skin_logo_top_margin’] : ‘22’ ); ?>px; }

But nothing changed. How can i change de margin of logo?

thanks. my facebook: www.facebook.com/designfer

unisphere

Hi, you can set the logo top margin without changing the skin.php file (in fact, every change to the skin.php file requires you to go to the Skins Manager and hit the “Save Settings” button).

You can go to the “Skins Manager” and set the top logo margin in the “Header Positioning” tab.

Hi,

I would like the footer to be 1 column instead of 4 separate columns (i.e. I would like to have the customers widget scroller as the footer). Any chance you can help me out with this?

Thanks in advance.

unisphere

Hi, sure it’s possible, add a text widget with the logo scroller to the first footer widget column and then add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

#footer-column-2, #footer-column-3, #footer-column-4 { display: none!important; }

#footer-column-1 { width: 100%!important; margin-right: 0!important; }

Hello Joao, I did purchase the theme and I am just about to configure it – i have installed the theme but I want to upload XML file as seen in demo, how do I do this? And where can I get the step by step documentation needed to help in customizing the theme? I appreciate your quick response. thanks

unisphere

Hi, thanks for purchasing, I hope you enjoy it :)

If you extract the zip you’ve downloaded from ThemeForest you’ll see a file labeled documentation.pdf which explains how to import the theme demo data. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi, thanks for your response. that was my point first of call – i didnt see documentation.pdf in the folder. I just checked again, and its not there. thanks

unisphere

Hi, that’s very strange, I just checked the zip file and the documentation.pdf file is there. Anyway, you can download it from here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5063329/vanguard.pdf

thanks Unisphere i got the documentation. Another issue I have now is that I have not been able to import the demo data. it says below

“The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”

In addition, when I choose skin manager, I have this error – Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in …wp-content/themes/vanguard/library/admin/options-interface.php on line 231

unisphere

Hi, the first error message doesn’t provide any good info and since importing data is a WordPress functionality I think you should contact your hosting company and ask them about this.

Regarding the second error it appears your server isn’t able to connect to the remote file on my server which populates the Google font list. This can be solved without contacting the hosting company but I require access to your WP installation admin panel. Could you email me the credentials?

thanks for the response. I will send the details. How do I diasble comments in pages, I already deleted the line comments..true in Page php file, but comments box is still showing. thanks

unisphere

Hi, you can hide the comments box in a per page basis by editing a page and unchecking the “Allow Comments” option in the “Discussion” panel. If you don’t see this panel further down in the edit page screen click the “Screen options” tab at the top right and check the “Discussion” option to make it available.
