I don’t know if I understood right, but WordPress stopped uploading custom themes?!? How can I upload this WP theme I have just purchased?? I must have got it wrong, otherwise all these WP themes here would be for sale.

Hi, I am unable to add a logo to my page. I save my logo under the Theme Settings page, but it only shows up on my PC. If I pull up my site on any other PC or Tablet etc, the logo space is blank.

The website I am currently creating is http://ifixscreens.net

Please let me know if you can assist. Thanks.

unisphere

Hi, I see no problem with your logo, it loads perfectly here. Are you still experiencing the issue or have you fixed it?

João,

Quando cadastrei alguns produtos usando a criação do portfolio, percebi que poderia fazer as coisas do jeito que tinha imaginado. Só encontrei um probleminha que não consegui resolver, até agora:

Quando abro a página onde está detalhada a descrição de um produto qualquer, percebo que os termos inerentes ao tema estão em inglês.

Os termos aos quais me refiro são, por exemplo, previous, next, other work, related work, etc.

É possível que eu mude essas configurações (preciso do site em português, inglês e espanhol) alterando algum .php específico?

Obrigado!

unisphere

Olá,

para disponibilizar o site em várias linguas, deverá instalar o plugin WPML (wpml.org) pois o theme permite criar sites multi-lingua com este plugin sem ter de alterar qualquer ficheiro php.

Abraço

Default-user

Entendido, João.

Obrigado pela dica. Ainda assim, no que se refere aos termos previous, next, related work, por exemplo, é uma questão de alterar o código, não?

Não sei se estou me expressando claramente, desculpe-me. A questão é que isso me parece configuração do próprio tema, e eu não vejo como mudar isso através do painel.

Abraço!

unisphere

Olá Diego,

sim poderá alterar o código referente a “previous”, “next” e “related work” no ficheiro content-single-portfolio.php mas se quiseres disponibilizar o site em várias linguagens não aconselho fazer esta alteração. Em vez disso recomendo instalar o WPML plugin e alterar estes termos a partir deste plugin.

Abraço!

Default-user

Ahh, perfeito! Entendi.

Obrigado mais uma vez, João!

Grande abraço!

Hi I just purchased this, i can’t get the coloured band showing at the top of the page please with the link as in the demo … can’t upload the demo file… Thanks – Sarah

unisphere

Hi Sarah, to get the superior-header bar “coloured band” to appear you just need to go to “Appearance » Widgets” and add a text widget to the “Superior-header Bar (Left)” and/or “Superior-header Bar (right)” widgetized areas.

Regarding not being able to import the theme demo XML file, some servers reduce the available memory for use in PHP so my advice is to contact your hosting company and ask them about raising the memory limit available for PHP.

Thank you very much, I was looking in the wrong place…Thanks – sarah

Hi,

The logo I am using is a bit bigger and it overlaps onto the slider. How do I did I fix this issue without having to resize my logo? (i.e. leaving space underneath the logo).

unisphere

Hi, you can go to the “Skins Manager” and then on the “Header Positioning” tab you can increase the header height to accommodate your logo.

Hi

I would like to buy this theme, but is it possible to have different colors for each bloc of the homepage?

Thanks ;)

unisphere

Hi, if you are referring to the wide gray backgrounds behind the “recent work” area of the home page for example, you can set any color you want to them, here are more example: http://vanguard.unispheredesign.com/features/shortcodes/wide-bar/

This is called the [wide_bar] shortcode.

Hi,

first of all: great theme! But how can i delete the “leave a reply” funktion on the full width pages? i want the page completely clean.

best regards!

Hi, to disable comments on a page or post, edit a page and on the top right you’ll see a tiny tab labeled “Screen Options”, click it and check the “Discussion” option (this will enable the “Discussion” panel and this has to be done only once). Then scroll down the page and you’ll see a new “Discussion” panel where you can uncheck the “Allow Comments” option.

Howdy,

I keep getting an error when I try to install the theme. The error is:

“Forbidden You don’t have permission to access /wordpress/wp-admin/updated.pho on this server.”

I recognize this may have nothing to do with the theme itself, but if it does, could you point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

A

unisphere

Hi, you should contact your hosting company since this isn’t indeed theme related, and most likely some missing security configuration.

When I delete one custom sidebar, all the others get deleted too!!

unisphere

Hi, that’s very strange, I tried replicating that issue in my local development site but I couldn’t, it works properly.

Can you provide me access to your WP admin panel so that I can try and debug the issue?

Best regards

PFVGomes Purchased

Sure. Sent you a DM.

unisphere

Hi, I’ve tested creating a few custom sidebars and had no problem deleting theme individually, it worked as expected.

In what browser are you experiencing this issue?

Best regards

Default-user
PFVGomes Purchased

Safari 6.0.2 for Mac 10.8.2. Not a problem at all.

unisphere

Hi, I was able to reproduce the issue in Chrome also and I’ll patch it in the next update. Meanwhile you can edit the file /library/admin/js/options-custom.js and replace the following code:

// Add confirmation dialog when deleting a sidebar
$('#section-sidebar_list .remove-button').click(function(e) {
    if(!confirm("Are you sure you want to delete this sidebar?"))     {
        e.preventDefault();
    } else {
        $(this).closest("form").submit();
    }
});

With this code:

// Add confirmation dialog when deleting a sidebar
var sidebar_delete_submitted = false;
$('#section-sidebar_list .remove-button').click(function(e) {
    if(!sidebar_delete_submitted && !confirm("Are you sure you want to delete this sidebar?"))     {
        e.preventDefault();
    } else {
        sidebar_delete_submitted = true;
        $(this).click();
    }
});

Where can I find my “theme verification code” in order to access your forum?

Can’t find the “3 types of navigation controls (thumbnail mode, hover thumbnails with buttons & buttons only) with auto hide feature” on LayerSlider too!!

Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, to access the forum take a look at this video tutorial: http://support.unispheredesign.com/forum-access-how-to/

Regarding your question, those features are hidden in order to make the LayerSlider more seamlessly integrated with the theme.

Best regards

Can’t I unhide them? None of the controls suits the theme well?

unisphere

Hi, I’ve logged in to your WP installation and I made those controls visible so you can give them a try.

Hello Unisphere !

This theme is really GREAT ! i’m just starting working with it.

I have an issue with my logo. The photo festival i’m working on has a circle logotype and it’s overlaping with Sub header zone. but i’m happy like that. looks good. The problem is with the right sidebar. (take a look at http://www.map-photo.fr/site/?page_id=1823)

Any tip to fix this ?

Thanks for your help !

unisphere

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

#header #logo { margin-bottom: -15px; }

Hi, I just purchased this item recently (very nice) and was wondering how to change the home page (using home page example 3) to not show a slider, just a full-width image. I also wondered how to update the color in the header (which .css file please?), content area, and footer. I tried updating in the skin area and it doesn’t seem to update. I also don’t want to update your latest version yet until I have time to save out all my changes! Best, Fel

unisphere

Hi,

1) You can edit the home page and on the “Vanguard Page Settings” you can hide the slider and show a sub-header with an image. Alternatively you can maintain what you have now and add the following code to the Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel in order to hide the slider navigation in the home page only:

body.home #slider-next,
body.home #slider-prev { display: none!important; }

2) The theme doesn’t have an option to change the default white background for the header and content areas although this can be achieved with a bit of custom CSS. Add the following code to the Custom CSS field and adjust as necessary:

/* Header bg color */
#superior-header-right .widget,
#header-container { background-color: #ddd!important; }

/* Content bg color *
#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: #ddd!important; }

To change the footer bar bg color you can go to the Skins Manager and on the “Colors” tab it’s the second color picker option.

Forgot to mention, too, that my favicon is not displaying in IE, even though I uploaded it. I am a folder down in my dev site…could that be the issue?? http://modernearthscapes.com/pindrop/

unisphere

Hi, from looking at your site I see that there’s a plugin that is also adding a favicon after the one that the theme includes. I believe the plugin is called “All in one Favicon” so try disabling it.

Can I add a sidebar to a portfolio page? There is a SIDEBAR drop down in the VANGUARD PORTFOLIO SETTINGS section, but it does not offer placement in the sidebar.

unisphere

Hi, I’m afraid there’s no sidebar available for the portfolio item detail page. You can see the “Sidebar” option in the “Vanguard Portfolio Settings” but they only refer to the widgetized areas other than the “Main Sidebar”.

on the demo page when you click on narrow under the skins option, what size is the grey background for the banner?

unisphere

Hi, when using the narrow layout, the max width is 1024px.

hi, any idea why images are blurry when using woocommerce.

Lucretiacostumes.co.uk (homepage)

unisphere

Hey buddy, the images appear blurred because they are of a smaller size than the size you are displaying them. For example, the following image 112×150px and is displayed as 212×283px: http://www.lucretiacostumes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/ARETE_8380506431_l-112x150.jpg

Go to the Woocommerce admin panel and set the desired size for your product images.

Thankyou. Is there a code to make these pages centred, at the moment any woocommerce page is pushed to the left. example http://www.lucretiacostumes.co.uk/shop/adelpha/

#content #container { overflow: hidden; margin-left: -32px; }

Hi there,

I was wondering if there was a way to customize the order of the sliders on the homepage?

Thanks!

unisphere

Hi, if using the theme slider (not the LayerSlider) you can change their order by changing their “Published Date” being the most recent the first to appear. Alternatively you can install the following plugin in order to sort the items in a drag-and-drop interface: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-types-order/
