We built out our entire website and realized that there are no share buttons on the blog page. Is there a specific plugin you recommend for sharing that will go well (and not too clunky) with this theme?

unisphere

Hi, the theme does include share buttons on single post and portfolio pages but you need to create an AddThis account: www.addthis.com

After creating a free account just set your AddThis profile ID in the Theme Options “AddThis” tab.

To see how they look please see this page for example: http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/looking-inside-a-poor-mans-camera-bag

How can I take the very bottom footer and make it more than 1 line. I need to include a lengthy disclaimer but when I put the text in I am limited to only 1 line of text and most of the text is cut off. Any advice? Thanks

unisphere

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

body #footer { padding-top: 11px; line-height: 23px; height: auto; }
body #footer p { line-height: 23px; }

Greetings! How do I turn my email address into a hotlink like you have on the demo site’s SUPERIOR-HEADER BAR RIGHT? Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, add a text widget to the “Superior-header Bar Right” area with the following code (adjust to your email):

<a href="mailto:info@yourdomain.com">info@yourdomain.com</a>

Hi there, this is really beautiful theme, congratulations.

I have a couple questions for you before I jump in:

1. I need to make sure I get a theme that would allow me to build a “clients page” with all of our clients logos. Maybe 100+ all on one page. Something that’s easy to manage and add additional images to.

2. We also need to create a streaming banner or auto-slider with client logos on a the bottom of another page.

Is this functionality possible with your theme? If not, do you know if there is a plugin that I could use with your theme to get the effect I’m looking for?

Cheers, – John

unisphere

Hi, and thank you, I’m happy you like the theme :)

1) Yes it’s possible. You have 2 options, first you can create portfolio items for each client logo (this option is good if you want to provide further information about a client in a detail page) or second, a more easy way is to upload your clients images to a page and display them using a WordPress [gallery] like this: http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/pages/gallery/

2) You could create a LayerSlider with your clients logos and place it on a page. Both the theme slider and the LayerSlider can be placed in every page you want through the use of a shortcode: http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/features/shortcodes/sliders/

Is there a way to turn off being able to click and enlarge a gallery item? I don’t want my clients clicking the logos… just to see them.

Just following up Unisphere… purchased the template and wanted to know if there was a way to turn off being able to click on a portfolio item. This would be a great help if you could advise me how to do this.

Cheers, – John

unisphere

Hi John, yes it’s possible although it requires some minor changes to a file, could you let me know what portfolio template are your using on your portfolio page?

I’d actually like to use your gallery with the 5 across images though. Not sure how to set that up. What I like about that is there are no company names at the bottom. It’s just the pictures. I just don’t want to be able to click on them to expand.

Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, in order to make the 5 columns WordPress [gallery] shortcode not link to anything you’ll need to edit the file /library/gallery.php and replace the following code:

<a href="' . $img_lnk . '" title="' . $img_alt . '" data-rel="' . $img_rel . '"></a>

With this code:

<a href="javascript: void(0);" title="' . $img_alt . '"></a>

NOTE: This file will have a few changes in the next update (to be released tomorrow) so if you update to the next theme version make sure to reapply this change again after the update.

is there any way to make the top menu wrap in the event of a more narrow browser? My site is looking good on an iPad if the pad is horizontal, but when turned vertical the top menu runs into the company logo. Any way to force a wrap?

unisphere

Hi, I’m afraid not but there’s a quick solution through the use of a custom CSS that shortens the horizontal spacing and font size on tablet portrait size. Try adding the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel (adjust values if necessary):

@media only screen and (max-width: 1023px) {
    body .nav > li { padding-left: 20px; }
    body .nav > li > a { font-size: 12px; }
}

Hello! Great theme! One question: how do I set the HREF of the parent menu items (with sub items) go to # like your example page? I don’t want users to be able to click on the parent page. Thank you.

unisphere

Hi, you can install a plugin called “Page Links To” that enables you to set a custom destination URL for a page or post. Activate the plugin, edit the page you don’t want to link and on the bottom of the edit page admin panel you’ll see a new panel where you can set the custom URL, set it as ”#”.

Love this theme. Used it for my own website. For some reason the menu in the smart phone (iPhone) format isnt working. But it works in the tablet format and laptop format. Any ideas on a solution? Anything in the settings?

unisphere

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

#menu-bg { z-index: 92!important; }

If the problem persists could you link me your site so that I can take a look?

I can’t seem to find the option to make the portfolio listing page sortable. I want to include the bar beneath the sub heading that says ‘Browse: Category 1, Category 2 etc.’

I have 5 portfolio categories setup, and have a few portfolio detail pages assigned to each category, but can’t find the option/shortcode to display this bar on the first portfolio page?

unisphere

Hi, edit your portfolio page and on the “Portfolio” toggle of the “Vanguard Page Settings” you’ll find 2 fields, a multi-checkbox field where you select the categories to be displayed and a text field where you can set the number of items per page (pagination). Leave the pagination field blank and the sortable feature should appear.

Greetings! How do I get my half page blog to look like the one on the vanguard sample site. The READ MORE and the LEAVE A COMMENT or 7 COMMENTS buttons?

unisphere

Hi, the buttons only appear when you break the post content into a summary for the blog list page. In order to do this please take a look at the following page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

Tried it but it did not work. I see the MORE tag in the visual editor but not on the published post.

unisphere

Hi, I believe you’ve added the MORE tag to this post: http://www.3dpromotions.com/earbuds/

If you see this post on your blog page (not the post detail page) you’ll see the “read more” and “leave a comment” buttons: http://www.3dpromotions.com/home-page/blog/

My client wants color bars running down the sides of the page and won’t budge on this decision. I know I can change the background via css with #content-container, but that colors behind the text as well. He basically wants the body a darker color but the content container still white. Adding a background-color to the body tag doesn’t seem to make this happen. Is it possible easily via the custom css area?

unisphere

Hi, I’m not sure I completely understand your question. Could you link me to a screenshot of what your client wants so that I can see if it’s possible with custom CSS?

Hi, thanks for this great theme. Couple pre-sale questions: 1.- Can we see any different screenshots of your admin panel not showed in the demo? 2.- Compatibility with WPML and the Job Manager plugin ?(http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/job-manager/)

Thank you in advance :)

unisphere

Hey,

1) Sure, here are the theme options panel where you can set global configs for various parts of the theme: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/280x/0nc4

Here’s the image sizes manager where you can select image heights on the fly: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/280x/ghwr

The Skins Manager: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/280x/ywgv and http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/features/skins-manager/

The fonts manager: http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/features/fonts-manager/

The sidebar manager: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/280x/w9gs and http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/features/multiple-sidebars/

Then on each portfolio item, blog post and page there are different meta admin panels like for example this one for pages: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/280x/8hxj

2) The theme fully supports WPML. Regarding the Jobs Manager plugin I installed it and it worked just fine, take a look: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/280x/q9dk

Hello. I’ve just purchased your beautiful theme. I would like to use the google font “Open Sans”. I just don’t know how. When I go to the font manager there are no fonts I could apply. Even when I press the update button, nothing happens. Maybe you could help me out with that issue. Thanks in advance

unisphere

Hi, the fonts manager only purpose is to select which Google Font subsets you which to use and upload new Cufon fonts.

In order to apply the fonts to different areas of the theme please go to the Skins Manager and click the “Fonts” tab.

Thanks for your quick response. But i still have the same problem. When I go to the “Skin Manger”- > “Fonts” there are no loaded google fonts I could apply. Only the default font stack appears. How can I get the google fonts into the theme?

unisphere

Hi, then in that case the Google Font list isn’t being downloaded properly. Could you email me admin access to your WordPress installation so that I can take a look? You can email me using the contact form in my ThemeForest profile page.

Are featured images necessary for blog posts or will the theme still look nice without them, or only some of them?

Thanks.

Greetings again! I have been having difficulty with my portfolio. I want the individual pages within the portfolio to open not as a light box but a page with a slider and other content. I clicked the sub-slider checkbox. What else am I missing?

unisphere

Hi, you have that option in the portfolio item. Edit the portfolio item and on the “Vanguard Portfolio Settings” expand the “Portfolio” toggle and check the option “Thumbnail links to detail page”, see screenshot: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/280x/5vk0

Hi, thank you for this awesome theme!! This is one of the most professional WP themes I’ve seen so far!

Question regarding putting text in the “superior header bar right” using the text widget. This creates a white background and “interrupts” the colour of the header bar. If possible, I would like for the header bar to retain its original colour with the text placed over it. Is this possible?

Any suggestion is much appreciated! Thanks

unisphere

Hi, thanks, I’m happy you like the theme :)

To make the superior header bar (right) the same background color as the superior header add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel:

#superior-header-right .widget { background-color: inherit!important; color: #fff!important; }
#superior-header-right .widget a { color: #fff!important; }

Best regards

Default-user

Hi, tanks for your quick reply. I tried adding the suggested code to the custom CSS field in the theme options panel but this results in the superior header bar (right) becoming total blanc (or white). I also tried replacing the ”#fff!important” code with the background colour of my superior header bar, but this only seems to work for the text in the text widget.

Any other suggestions perhaps?

Thanks in advance!

unisphere

Hi, could you post a link to your site so that I can take a proper look?

unisphere

Hi, I just tested the code I provided earlier in your site using Firebug and it works perfectly. Could you apply the code and let me know so that I can take another look?

Best regards

Default-user

Yesss, copy-pasted the code again, and now it works perfectly! Thanks a lot!!
