Hi unisphere! Great theme =) I’m trying to add a redirect on a slide to another website at the end of the animation using the event callbacks.. I tried this function,

$(‘layerslider_widget-2’).layerSlider({cbAnimStop:function(){location.href=’http://www.google.com';}}); but it did not work, also tryid

function(data) {location.href=’http://www.google.com'; } but had no success.. Can you help out here.. Thank you

unisphere

Hi, the cbAnimStop event is actually triggered at the start of the animation (for some strange reason…). Because of this, and in order to redirect after a specific slider item has finished, you’ll have to check the current index of the slider and what is the loop number.

Use the following code in the cbAnimStop event text field to see the slider data in the browser console:

function(data) { 
console.log('curLayerIndex: ' + data.curLayerIndex); 
console.log('nextLayerIndex: ' + data.nextLayerIndex); 
console.log('nextLoop: ' + data.nextLoop); 
//window.location.href='http://www.google.com';
}

Uncomment the “location.href” line in the above code in order for it redirect properly (you were missing the ‘window’ portion).

Hi there, great theme!!

I just have one quick question, how can i add the logos carrusel you have at the homepage in other pages?

Thanks a lot

unisphere

Hi, the logo scroller can be added to any page like any other shortcode. Try editing a page and on the Visual Editor click the “Shortcode Manager” button and select the “Logo scroller” (if you don’t see this option clear your browser cache).

Best regards

Default-user

I’ve already cleared the browser cache and it still doesn’t appear on the shortcodes list. Any idea why?

unisphere

Hi, make sure that you are running version 1.3 of the theme, if you aren’t you should update. If it still doesn’t show up could you post a link to your site so that I can take a look?

Hi, it’s a good wordpress thanks. Il love this full responsive, but when I use my website on a phone or tablet, it’s impossible to navigate with the menu. Impossible to tape on the menu. Please help me ! website : www.alvisys.com

unisphere

Hi, that bug was fixed in the 1.3 update. From looking at your site I see that you are running version 1.2 so I recommend updating the theme.

Hi

I have installed this theme on wp 3.15, But its not working when, i select the wide skin, at that time it shows, narrow skin insted

Please help me sort it out

unisphere

Hi, could you link me your site so that I can take a look?

Best regards

unisphere

Hi, I see that your site is using the wide layout (I can see it in the code). If what you are referring to is the slider, then make sure that the slider you are using has the “Full-width” style on the slider options: http://awesomescreenshot.com/054xxsdc8

My wp theme shows that version 3.5.1 is available. Should I update my version? Are there any issues that will happen if I update?

unisphere

Hi, the theme is fully compatible with WP 3.5.1. As with all WordPress upgrades, make sure to create a backup of your WP installation files and database.

Greetings! Is there any way to customize the portfolio descriptions on this specials page? http://www.3dpromotions.com/specials/ Thanks!
unisphere

Hi, the portfolio template you are using (4 columns) doesn’t allow displaying a description, just a title. In order to display a summary description you’ll have to use the 1 column portfolio template.

Hi,

How can I change the font in the footer from caps to be upper and lowercase?

Thanks

unisphere

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

#footer .widget, #footer .widget li { text-transform: none!important; }

Best regards

Default-user

Thanks for that,

Also how do I change the colour of the line at the bottom of the footer. I changed the main colour in the skins manager but it didnt change this line?

unisphere

Hi, changing the main color in the Skins Manager should change that footer bottom border, make sure that you go to the Skins Manager, choose the main color and save settings. If it doesn’t work please post a link to your site so that I can take a look.

I asked this question on your support forum, but it seems to not be reviewed frequently.

How can I increase the spacing between the wide slider controls? It covers some of the slider content on my website.

unisphere

Hi, sorry for the delay, somehow the notification email about your new topic didn’t get on my inbox. Anyway, I’ve replied to your topic now on the forums.

Hello, is there a way to change the play button on embedded videos? I have the videos set to not auto-play and I would like to make the play button stand out more.

Thank you

unisphere

Hi, if you are referring to the play button in videos in the LayerSlider, you need to edit the sprite image in /LayerSlider/skins/vanguard/skin.png (it’s the first two images in the left, make sure to not exceed the bounds of the image or you’ll need to edit CSS).

I am considering purchasing your theme – it looks great! A couple of questions: 1. I need to set up websites for two sister companies, on the same worksite, using the same server etc. – do I need to purchase this theme twice? 1. Do you have some client websites that I may view? Thank you.

unisphere

Hi,

1) I honestly don’t know, please take a look at the Licenses page and if you still have any doubts about this please contact Envato support: http://themeforest.net/licenses

2) I’m afraid not, although there are some Buyers who have linked their sites through past support requests.

Wow. Vanguard is the best theme I’ve come across so far on ThemeForest in a few years. Sure, there are more impressive-looking themes, but when you try to actually use them, they break in weird ways or are just toooooo complicated.

Thanks

Hey, thanks for your awesome testimonial, really appreciate it :)

Hey, love the theme but I have a few questions:

Is there any way to make a 2 sidebar page and/or make the posts on the blog template show abbreviated?

I am using columns to fake it a second sidebar on this page but the formatting is preventing me from using the Recent Posts shortcode the body of this page.

I would prefer using the blog template for the Studies page but I don’t want to display the entire post for any of them.

unisphere

Hi,

I’m afraid you can’t have 2 sidebars on the same page with the theme, this would actually require changes to several files, it’s not an easy customization.

In order to display a summary of a post in the blog list page you can use the WordPress “more” tag on the posts, see more info here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

Hi, I like this theme.

I am having trouble with the logo scroller though. Can some one please point me in the direction of somewhere I can trouble shoot this? My developer says he can’t see the short code

click here

unisphere

Hi, from looking at your site I see that you are running the latest version 1.3 so you should be seeing the shortcode in the visual editor shortcode manager. If you don’t see it, please clear your browser’s cache and check again.

Yes, I saw that. But its not showing properly. If you visit the site you will see only a single image is showing up. I’ve used the following codes for this. Please submit to them it. Thanks

Hi, I tested your site on Chrome and Firefox and I can see the logos scrolling properly so I assume you’ve fixed the issue.

Very strange

When I test it is working on IE and FF, but not on Chrome

unisphere

That’s very strange, I see it working on Chrome in Mac. Could you email me admin access to your WP installation so that I can take a look at any possible cause for the issue?

Great theme unisphere. Quick question; how to change the img links of your widget “Unisphere Recent Portfolio Items” from going to the detail page? I would rather the portfolio items open up in lightbox, because the detail page is broken for some reason.

unisphere

Hi, edit the file /library/widgets/recent-portfolio.php and replace the following code:

if( $image )
    echo '<a href="' . get_permalink(get_the_ID()) . '" title="' . get_the_title() . '" class="post-image">' . $image . '</a>';

With this code:

if( $image ) {
    $full_image = wp_get_attachment_image_src(get_post_thumbnail_id(get_the_ID()), 'full', false);
    echo '<a href="' . $full_image[0] . '" title="' . get_the_title() . '" class="post-image" data-rel="lightbox">' . $image . '</a>';
}

Is there a way to change the order of the slider images?

thanks andy

unisphere

Hi, yes you can, the regular slider posts behave just like any other WordPress post, in other words, they are ordered by published date being the most recent one the first to appear. You can manually change the published date of a slider item or use the following plugin in order to drag and drop the slider items list: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-types-order/

Hey! First off – absolutely love the template. It is extremely easy to use. BUT I need help with editing the superior-header. I would like it to be transparent so that the menu options appear over the background Rather than over the white. I couldn’t figure it out in CSS.

unisphere

Hi, I’m happy you like the theme.

I’m sorry but I didn’t understood your question correctly, could you be more specific or maybe provide a screenshot of the desired result?

Best regards

Default-user

Where the sites logo and menu bars are – there is a white box around it. I would rather have the logo and menu options over my preset background and not have the white box. http://dev.phantomscreensga.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Screen-Shot-2013-02-27-at-9.15.01-AM.png

unisphere

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

#header-container { background-color: transparent!important; }

AWESOME. Thank you so much for the prompt response. It works and looks great.

Hello, the client whose site is being developed with your theme has asked me to incorporate some sort of navigation within the sub-header slider area of a page. Here is the site (http://fliptv.com/services) They would like to incorporate something like this within the black slider space: http://www.htmldrive.net/items/demo/199/jQuery-and-CSS3-Awesome-Slide-Down-Box-Menu

Do you think this would be possible? Or do you know of any other similar wordpress plugin?

Thanks for any help you may provide!

unisphere

Hi, unfortunately this isn’t possible out of the box, you will need to either find a plugin that does this or outsource the development of the customization I’m afraid.

Best regards
