Hi I have one problem in Portfolio, I am trying to post a button shortcode with a download link from DropBox and when I press the Update/Publish button it redirects to “Page Not Found” Page and the post is not being updated. But when I remove the link in the button shortcode it publishes.

What’s wrong?

unisphere

Hi, that’s very strange, could you post or email me the button shortcode code so that I can replicate the problem in my test site?

Best regards

Hi here’s the shortcode:

[button text=”Download This Lesson” size=”small” url=”https://dl.dropbox.com/s/nsnmpxr2dbci3uw/SS04-15-12.pdf?dl=1” /]

Also here’s the full post of the post: http://pastie.org/private/l7bv39sp00cdqumrrr8q the shortcode is in line 14 and 64.

Thanks

unisphere

Hi, I’ve just tested the entire code you pasted using pastie.org and there was no error. Could it be a plugin that you have activated that is causing the issue?

Hi

Could you help me implement flowplayer live streaming, I’ve already made it implement using html page but when implementing at the wordpress page it’s won’t show.

I’ve posted the link here: http://pastie.org/private/sgtrqacawjbcavi9z8odw

Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, I think the problem is that in the header you are referencing /jwplayer/jwplayer.js which is not found, try specifying the full absolute path to that file. Also, an easier option would be to search for a WordPress plugin that includes a flowplayer object.

Best regards

Default-user

Hi I am able to work it now, but the player is not responsive, can you make it responsive like what you’ve done in my ustream?

Code: http://pastie.org/private/6pkf6zuwporse4thg29oew

Thank you

unisphere

Hi, I’m unable to test it with just that code, could you post a link to your site so that I can take a look?

Best regards

Default-user

Hi it’s mbbcintl.com/jwplayers

Thank you very much

unisphere

Hi, I’m afraid it’s not possible to make that video responsive since it’s an embedded flash object and not an iframe. This causes the video responsiveness script to ignore the player I’m afraid.

Best regards

Hi just check my site using firefox and the images is not resizing automatically mbbcintl.com

unisphere

Hi, if you are referring to the images right below the slider, they aren’t resizing because the link anchor tag “a” wrapping the images have 2 css rules that cause this: “display: inline” and “overflow: hidden”.

Remove these css rules from the links and the images should resize to the width of the one_fourth containers.

Best regards

Default-user

Hi unisphere sorry for the long response, just saw your reply and I was wondering which css file and line will I delete? I am using the Custom destination URL for Image shortcode for this images.

Thanks

unisphere

Hi, the code is actually in the page content that you’ve added. If you can’t identify it feel free to email me admin access and I’ll fix it for you.

Hello, great theme!

One presale question.

I want to use ubermenu megamenu with your theme. To do that your theme has to properly implement the WordPress 3 Menu System, using the wp_nav_menu() function with the theme_location parameter, it’s OK?

Thanks

unisphere

Hi, yes the theme properly implements the WP 3 menu system using the wp_nav_menu() and the theme_location param (set as “header_menu”).

Keep in mind that these might not be the only requirements for the megamenu to work, you still might need custom CSS in order to properly display the menu in the theme.

Hey! Love the theme, So much to work with.

I was hoping for a little help with the blog – I just imported an older set of blog entries (all of them) into my new wordpress install. Under the blog section I have the blog template enabled. The proper number of posts show up but unlike your template they show the entire post and not just the excerpt with a link to “read more” ...

http://1k2go.com/2013/blog/

I just want all the entries to show up on each page with just the excerpt and feature image if it’s selected …

Thanks so much for the help.

unisphere

Hey,

you have 2 options, either edit each post and set a custom excerpt in the “excerpt” field (you can also use the WordPress “more” tag to break the post into a summary) or if you have a lot of posts and don’t want to edit them all, edit the file content.php and replace the 2 occurrences of the_content() with the_excerpt()

Hope this helps.

Best regards, Happy 2013

Thanks so much – went with the second option due to the number of posts imported in from previous press. Great support.

does this theme support ultimate sidebars? Can I create sidebar widget areas?

unisphere

Hi, the theme enables you to create any number of custom sidebars and replace an existing sidebar on a page with your custom created one. Some info here: http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/features/multiple-sidebars/

Nice Theme – I don’t know much about WP (just learning) but I’m very pleased with where I have my site right now thanks to your nice work.

Here’s my Question: How can I get the sub header bar to NOT have the navigation link that says “You are here….”? It’s driving me nuts! Please advise.

Thanks

unisphere

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

Hi, I bought Vanguard. But Home page slider not displayed. Images are uploaded. PLease visit http://eng.art-gallery.mn/

Tnx

unisphere

Hi, when looking at your site I see several javascript errors that are most likely caused by a plugin that is activated. Try disabling plugins one by one and refresh the home page to see if it starts working.

Hi Unisphere,

back for a small question :) Is there any way to get a button into the layerslider with shortcode? Or via another way? So far it hasn’t been working for me.

I need it like under a piece of text as a CTA

unisphere

Hi, that’s a bug and I’ll fix it in the next update. Meanwhile edit the file /library/LayerSlider/slider.php and look for the following code on line 151:

do_shortcode(stripslashes($sublayer['html']))

Then replace it with:

unisphere_run_shortcode(do_shortcode(stripslashes($sublayer['html'])))

Best regards

It worked perfectly, thanks alot!

Hi,

I am using your recent post widgets in the footer but the font color shows up the same blue as the background even though the link color is set up to orange, thinking it maybe a visited link thing that reverts it to another color- also the font seems different and larger- is there a place to enter css to fix this?

thanks!

unisphere

Hi, yes that’s indeed a bug. I’ll provide a fix in the next update, meanwhile you can add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

.footer-column a { color: #fff!important; }

Greetings…thanks for all your help so far! Question, How can I get my most recent Blog to post first. It shows up the RECENT POSTS, but the most recent is not first.

unisphere

Hi, from looking at your site’s blog page I believe that you aren’t displaying all categories on that page which causes your most recent post to not display.

Edit your blog page and on the “Blog” toggle of the “Vanguard Page Settings” make sure that you select all your blog categories.

Hello again! How can I change the AUTHOR NAME? It reads JIM…I want to add my last name. www.3dpromotions.com

unisphere

Hi, the author name is controlled by WordPress, not the theme. Go to the WordPress admin dashboard and click the “Users ยป Your profile” link, then change the First and Last name.

Hello, I’m looking to purchase does your theme support/or have

  • I did not find this, Can I show sliders on other pages
  • change slider width, background color
  • is the theme SEO optimized
  • tag cloud
  • user control/setting, for letting them choose the theme color (i.e. Let the user pick his color)
  • layout page for download, where its visible once he paid for the item
  • I want to rename the wp-content folder, will your theme stop working if I do this
  • Do you support to RTL

Also, what other (popular) plugins has it been tested with.

unisphere

Hi,

1) Yes you can display individual sliders in any page, post or portfolio item.

2) You have 2 options, use a normal 960px width slider or a fullwidth 1920px max width slider. If using the LayerSlider you can choose the background color as well.

3) Yes it is, I’ve made sure to use proper HTML headings for a good in page SEO.

4) It supports the default WordPress tag cloud widget.

5) Yes you can choose several colors available in different parts of the theme, see more here: http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/features/skins-manager/

6) I’m afraid not, that’s one feature that could potentially be useful to very few users.

7) Renaming the wp-content folder could cause the skin CSS to break, I don’t recommend this.

8) Unfortunately no.

The theme has been tested with WPML and W3 Total Cache.

Thanks for the response, my client is trying to decide between vanguard and u design @ http://themeforest.net/item/udesign-wordpress-theme/253220.

The main things are 1) SEO, 2) changing menu style 3) Widgets and 4) 3rd party plugins

unisphere

Hi,

1) Most modern theme has good on page SEO through the use of heading tags (H1, H2, H3, etc) and Vanguard follows these rules.

2) In the theme options you can change several styles for the top menu: the font, size and weight (bold, normal, italic), and uppercase.

3) The theme includes custom widgets for displaying Popular Posts, Recent Posts, Popular Portfolio Items, Recent Portfolio Items, Twitter, Flickr, Contact Form, Social Icons and a Sub-pages menu of top parent page.

4) From the feedback I’ve had from this theme and others that I have for sale, I don’t remember having any problems with 3rd party plugins.

I would like the subhead to show up on each page using a gray (#ccc) background but using the skins manager to set it makes it change a bunch of backgrounds on my pages including adding a line in between bullet points and making all the wide bars gray as well. see here: http://www.hhicarewire.com/ . The only way i can get rid of it is to set it to a white background but then I am unable to have the gray background behind the subhead. I tried to dummy my way around it but since you can’t add code before the blog posts start on a blog page, it doesn’t work. Is there a way just to access the CSS and page code in this somewhere? I see the place to override CSS but dont know what the styles are exactly i need to override…

thanks!

unisphere

Hi, from looking at your site I see that you’ve managed to get it working like you wanted it. To anyone wondering I’ll leave the answer here. Add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

#sub-header-container.solid-bg,
#sub-header-container.solid-bg .bar { background-color: #ccc!important; }

hey unisphere. thnx for a great theme,

I want to change body background (Not Site Background) in Narrow style… How can i change it. It always remains White… Is there any option so we can change the Body color ????

unisphere

Hi, try adding the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel and adjust to a color you like:

#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: #fff; }

Best regards

vivekgupta

thank you for your quick response. But its not working :(

I have change color code in .small-title h3 { background-color: #fff; }

But still there is white background in the body. here is the link of site: http://marketingmindz.com/projects/mm/ You will see that site bg is black but body bg is white. i want to change it in black color. So what can i do to change it…

My another question is that can i change the home page slider’s effects and styles ???

unisphere

Hi, sorry I forgot something in the code, try this instead:

#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: #ccc!important; }

Regarding the slider effects question, the theme slider only supports fading transitions, for more customization options you should use the LayerSlider bundled with the theme.

Thanx a lot dear for great support… Would u like to suggest me some free slider plugin which having more features and i can use with this theme… :O

unisphere

Hi, the theme already includes a license of the following slider: codecanyon.net/item/layerslider-wp-the-wordpress-parallax-slider/1362246

It supports lots of customizations and has lots of features.

Greetings! It appears that this theme does not allow a page to have both a slider and a sub-header bar. Would this be true? Without the sub-header bar there is no bread crumb and page title. Any way around this?

unisphere

Hi, you are correct, the sub-header slider overrides the sub-header bar but if you want to show both edit the file sub-header.php and on line 14 you’ll find the following code:

if( isset( $custom['_page_sub_header_style'][0] ) && $custom['_page_sub_header_style'][0] != '' && !( isset( $custom['_page_show_slider'][0] ) && $custom['_page_show_slider'][0] == '1' ) )

Replace it with this line:

if( isset( $custom['_page_sub_header_style'][0] ) && $custom['_page_sub_header_style'][0] != '' )

Hi There,

I will start by saying that this theme is friggin’ awesome and I really cannot wait when I start having fun customizing it! Very well done!

I am running into a small issue with setting up the blog page and I would like to ask you to point me out to the right direction. I’ve set up my blog page (http://caddys.adobemagic.com/blog/) by giving it one of the blog templates and including all available categories in the blog settings toggle at the bottom (I am still your initial xml file provided). In the READING I’ve set the static “home” for the front page and the ”../blog” for the post page. It’s still not showing the posts on the blog page. It’s showing them in the sidebar but not on the “default” page.

unisphere

Hi, you’ve setup almost everything correct but since the theme supports having multiple independent blog pages you need to go to the READING options and on the “posts page” leave it unselected (don’t select any page).

Let me know if this works,

Best regards

This really is a beautiful theme. Before I purchase…

I am working on a site that will need a slider with an image background and HTML content over it.

Can I input code into the slider? I know the answer is probably yes, but I want to make sure.

unisphere

Hi, the theme default slider doesn’t support adding HTML but the theme includes a license for the awesome LayerSlider and this one allows adding HTML content.

Hello,

I have some small problems with the portfolio posts… After the link www.sitename.com/portfolio.info/project1/#.UOYeVrYU1xs Not sure why i get those #.UOYeVrYU1xs at the end Update: Seems that the Addthis ID adds that at the end of the link.

unisphere

Hi, I believe these are added by AddThis automatically so I’m afraid there’s no way around them. However I wouldn’t worry about them too much since they don’t cause any problems.

Best regards
