Hi there,

Thank you for an excellent theme!

When inserting a post with ‘Big thumbnails left aligned’ and having no featured image assigned. The page shows the image ‘post_thumb.jpg’. Is it possible to set the thumb list so that when you’ve got no featured image assigned it doesn’t show ‘post_thumb.jpg’ (so no thumbnail at all) but instead just fills out the text?

thanks in advance,

Bob

SaurabhSharma

Hello Bob,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Featured image fallback can be changed to show no image and expand the text to full width. This will require some editing to the core files. Kindly drop me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com, mentioning which theme version and theme format (timthumb or non-timthumb) you are using.

Hello Saurabh, A few days ago my theme looks strange on my Mac. I asked a friend who uses a PC and it looks fine on his screen. I have the same problem on my iPhone 4. It seems that there ist something like a fallback to mobile phone optimized version??

Do you have an idea what the problem can be? Same problem on Chrome. Here is a screenshot!

Any help would be great!

Hello Salti,

It seems you are using the version in which there was a media query for high resolution devices. Open footer.php file and look for this line at the end:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/smartphone.css" media="only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio : 1.5), only screen and (min-device-pixel-ratio : 1.5)">

Delete this line and save the file. Also, if using any caching plugin, delete the plugin cache and check site again. I hope this will work.

Hi Saurabh. How are you!

I´m writting to you today to ask for a few advices on volt theme since we did updated to the latest version today. We have an issue with the thumbs in the home page, those down below the slider. What is happening is that when mouse goes over the image suddenly goes awry.

In the past you had given me some advices on how to take off the plus sign when hovering the images, but today i ask to you how can we just make the image be clicable taking the arrow left sign off when we hovering the images ?

We have people that can help here if this is too difficult for me to handle.

We also integrated facebook apps to volt and apart from a few problem on my end, it is going to feel and look amazing.

Catch you later! Cheerss

Is there a way to have multiple contact forms sending to different email addresses? I see the option to add one contact form, but not another one. Any suggestions?

SaurabhSharma

Hello boozecan,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

Contact form template can be used multiple times, but the email address will remain same. In that case, you can use the Contact Form 7 plugin. The theme supports this plugin.

After installing the plugin, you can create forms. A short code will be generated which you can paste inside any page, post or text widget. I hope that will help.

Your theme looks great an I am setting up 3 sites with your theme. One site is already populated. Your template is not fully responsive but I need it to be. I don’t want to have to switch templates and was wondering if there is an update or anything I can change or add to make it fully responsive. I would love to discuss compensation for your time and help. I see that the last update to this theme was in October 2012 and was just wondering if you plan on creating an update to make it fully responsive. Thank you,

SaurabhSharma

Hello duchessnduke,

Thanks for purchasing the theme and providing kind feedback. There are some updates for this theme including responsiveness (which is a long overdue). I will try and make it available within this February.

Hello Saurabh, We love your feature rich theme. I do need some guidance on resizing the older images that were already uploaded and attached as feature images when we moved from Pagelines theme to Volt. The images appear full size regardless of placement. I would like to avoid having to reupload them. Is there a plugin or fix that you can recommend. The site is http://thinkcolumbusfirst.org/dev/ . You can see the oversized images one in the slider titled Invest Ohio and one of wine bottles further down the home page. I checked permissions in timhumb directories and upgraded timthumb file. Running WP 3.5.1. Thank you. Mayda

SaurabhSharma

Hello maydaohio,

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.

I think you have already fixed the images issue. For reference, old images can be re generated using regenerate thumbnails plugin.

We’d like to center the primary navigation bar. Is there any way to do this?

SaurabhSharma

Hello lawrentian,

Primary menu items can be centered by adding these rules at the end of style.css file:

.nav1 { text-align: center }
.nav1 li { float: none; display: inline-block }
.nav1 ul { text-align: left; top: 100% }

Hey SaurabhSharma,

when using the wp-included smileys they ALWAYS jump into a new line. stlye.css-changes with hints from several websites didn’t help. Can you help out?

Maybe a little hint: Its like they are inserting a <” br ”>

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello ItsJustP,

First of all sorry for getting late on reply. I was on holiday today.

WP Smileys may drop on next line if the image is inheriting the display: block property. In that case, if we assign display: inline to the image, it shall reside on same line. For that, add this rule at the end of style.css file:

img.wp-smiley { display: inline !important; }

I hope this will fix the issue.

Based on the live preview, it is my favourite yet!

My problem is that I cannot seem to assign the top or bottom menu to the them. When I go to Appearance/Menus/ThemeLocations it let’s my select my menu required menu, however after I click Save, then refresh the page, it doesn’t stay with my selected menu. Instead it just returns to having no menu whatsoever.

I have removed and reinstalled the theme several times, however it doesn’t seem to resolve the issue.

Please help, I’m meant to be launching this website today (www.StartSmarter.co.uk), but can’t do this without this basic requirement. Very much appreciated! Adam N.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Adam,

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.

It seems the theme is being installed as direct download zip. i.e. your current theme location might be as:

http://yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/your_download_zip/volt/

If that’s the case, the menus will not save due to long theme directory name. It will be required to unzip the download first. Next, ZIP the ‘volt’ theme folder and upload it to WordPress, so that the theme location becomes:

http://yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/volt/

If this doesn’t work, kindly send me your WP login details at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com. I will check it further. :)

Hi,

I really liked your theme. One quick question as i am new to Wordpress. I have installed WordPress 3.5.1 from GODADDY ONE CLICK Installation. I needed to know will your template work with this version of wordpress.

SaurabhSharma

Hello roshanphilip,

Thanks for browsing the theme.

The theme works with latest WordPress, but I would recommend installing WordPress manually on your server instead of automatic installations that comes with hosting package. Manual installation is more reliable and easy to make updates.

Hi Saurabh, There are 2 days (when i updated WP 3.5.1) that i have some problems. The 2 sidebar are visible only in homepage and in the pages but not in the articles :-( You can see here: http://thesocialnetwork.it/ (home OK) http://thesocialnetwork.it/fb/ (page OK) http://thesocialnetwork.it/facebook-ruzzle/ (article ERROR)

Please can you help me? Thanks in advance md

SaurabhSharma

Hello MD,

Looking at the source code, the sidebars are not getting loaded. This may happen if the get_sidebar() call is missing from single.php. You can confirm this by opening single.php in editor and check if get_sidebar(‘a’) and get_sidebar(‘b’) calls exists at the end of file.

Also, navigate to Appearance > Volt Options, and click on save settings. May be the settings variables got unset while update. These are used to show sidebar as well.

Hi Saurabh, the problem is come back :-( .. now the site is very slowly to load and the sidebars are not visible in the blog post. Maybe it’s possible that some plugins are the cause?

Please can you help another time? Thanks

SaurabhSharma

Hello MD,

You can try the solution which I mentioned earlier. Besides that, disable all plugins for a while and check the site. If it works, start enabling plugins one by one until you find the same error. This way, you will be able to detect the plugin causing this issue.

If this doesn’t work, you can send me your WP login at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com.

Hi Saurabh Sharma,

I encountered an error and I can’t know where it comes from. First, I thought it was due to a plugin, but the error remains after disabling the plugin. And it is an error that did not exist before. I thought it may be due to the latest update of wordpress, but not sure.

Error: the options I have (one with plugin and another without) to ’’send ’’, ’’print’’ a post or ’’download pdf’’ doesn’t read the post, only the title and related articles. No post content appears (no picture and text). However, the RSS reader reads well.

Do you know something about it?

Thanks!

SaurabhSharma

Hello Jordi,

I think you are using one of the post sharing plugins. As these options (print, download pdf, etc) are not with the theme. If they are created from a plugin, make sure you update the plugin to latest version.

If using any caching plugin, try to clear the plugin cache and check site again. For reference, such post sharing plugins needs additional og tags (in case of facebook) to be inserted in single posts. May be they are not generating these tags properly.

Thanks, I will look to follow your recommendations, although the error only occurs with the ’’send”, “print’’ and ’’pdf download” options (the same error with and without plugin, because I have two types)

Yes you can try that. If this doesn’t work, kindly send me the site URL with those buttons enabled.

Hi. I bought your skin for a client, and they wonder if its possible to have the thumbnails on the frontpage vertical instead of horizontal? Now the thumbs are 140×80. Could it be 80×140?

Thanks!

Christopher

SaurabhSharma

Hello Christopher,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

The three columnar thumbnails are 140px in accordance to the container width. Changing them to 80px will break their alignment, and it will be required to add more columns (around 5 or more) in one row. This requires customization to the core files. Unfortunately, I can not provide customization at this time.

For reference, if you wish to change the height of thumbnails, say 200 or more, that can be done by changing a little code. Kindly let me know if you wish to do that.

Regards

Default-user

Hi and thanks for reply. Yes, it would be great to change the height. It will at least show more of the images.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Christopher,

That’s nice. Kindly send me a mail at xconsau[at]gmail[dot]com, mentioning which theme format you are using (timthumb or non-timthumb) and the desired height for three columnar thumbnails. I will send you the fix.

I know this may be a question already answered here but how do I install the theme with the demo data on it? I purchased it but I am not that good in customizing it so that it looks like exactly like the theme in the demo

Thanks,

SaurabhSharma

Hello kledioni,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

On first load, the theme may not look exactly like the demo (as it requires addition of posts, pages, widgets, etc). For these, I have set up a basic documentation guide which you can find inside your_download_zip/documentation/index.html file.

This file will guide you in creating basic setup like Home page, posts, featured images, front page displays, etc. Further, you can find dummy data in XML and text format inside your_download_zip/volt/dummy_data/ folder.

Hello, SaurabhSharma

I purchased your theme yesterday thinking it would fit my necessity of a news (magazine) website, i have no experience with Wordpress, and for that i didn’t know that it was not possible to have posts lists on other areas of the website. Ex: in the Movies page, you have 10 posts and then it would be like (1,2,3…10,20,30) and the user would click on the 3, and it would take him to the third page. That doesn’t looks to happen, i place a Post List, and if i limit it to 10 posts, the 11th will simple not appear, that is not ideal for a news website as it is said in the description.

So my point is, there is a way to make that happen? if it doesn’t how can i get a refund? since it does not fit my website necessities and it would be completely useless for me.

Regards.

SaurabhSharma

Hello bfar93,

Thanks for purchasing the theme.

As you’ve mentioned you are not very aware of WordPress functionality, I shall explain how pagination works.

Pagination will work on post archives and blog templates. For example, if you create a new page and assign a “Blog List” template to it (along with the category IDs in page options panel), this page will show pagination as “Older Posts / Newer Posts”. If you install WP Page Navi plugin, this same navigation will turn into a paginated number buttons like 1,2,3,4, etc.

On the other side, pagination doesn’t work on post short codes. There is a limitation. For example, If I use three post short codes on same page, and they all have pagination, there will be conflict with page numbers. (i.e. which page is for which post short code).

So I assume you would have expected pagination on post short codes. That can not happen code wise. It will only work on archives. For example, check this List style blog with pagination.

In short, pagination will work on all archives and post templates except short codes. I hope I was able to explain it properly. :)

Hello,

I’ve been having problems with my theme. It does not show my Facebook or search widget on my A sidebar. Also, the widgets on the A sidebar flow over to the post section like you see here: http://www.goodlooknout.com/category/beauty-style/giveaway-beauty-style/

I cant change the header fonts either. Can you please help?

SaurabhSharma

Hello goodlooknout,

I just checked the site, the Facebook fans widget appears fine, and widgets are also appearing fine.

About header font, they are not working because they are being overridden by a Google Font plugin being used in your site. I checked the source code in which you might be trying to add “Cabin” font, whereas the current font is Voltaire which is being added by Google Font plugin. You can try by disabling this plugin and check again.

On a side note, I can see that the entire theme framework has been changed at your end. In that case, if any error occurs in the theme’s core files, you may need to contact the developer of these customizations. As I won’t be able to know what changes were being made. :)

Hello SaurabhSharma,

First of all, great work with this theme.

I’m looking to extend the functionality a little and I was hoping that you could point me in the right direction.

In my Wordpress, we added a property to the users (site’s only available to registered users) that links them to certain categories, so once they load the home page, the site shows them articles related to those categories.

Any ideas how I can achieve these with your theme?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

Hello ibexti,

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.

My apologies if I didn’t understood the query completely. I assume you wish to show different Category Home page for different users respectively.

Hi SaurabhSharma,

We read the related thread, and also read several pages of comments (be cause we don’t want to bother you again), but we haven’t solve our problem.

We need to show the same homepage structure but different content for each logged user.

As you can see in our QA environment (http://qa.ibexti.com/mtu3/) we are using the following content distribution:

///////////////////////////////////////////

HOME (HOME PAGE + SIDEBARS)

HOME PAGE [slider num=”4” cats=”1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12” offset=”0”]

[post_list num=”4” cats=”1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12” offset=”0”]

SIDEBAR A Volt Recent Posts

SIDEBAR B Text Widget 1 Text Widget 2 Volt Categories

///////////////////////////////////////////

If user A logs in, we would like to show the following content

HOME PAGE [slider num=”4” cats=”1,2,3”]

[post_list num=”4” cats=”4,5,6”]

SIDEBAR A Volt Recent Posts (just cat=”4”)

If user B logs in we would like to show the following content

HOME PAGE [slider num=”4” cats=”1,2,3,4,5”]

[post_list num=”4” cats=”2,3,6”]

SIDEBAR A Volt Recent Posts (cats=”4,5”)

///////////////////////////////////////////

Of course that this is just an example, but we’ve been trying with different role-based plugins but the homepage won’t change.

Thanks in advanced.

SaurabhSharma

Hello Guillermo,

I think different Home pages for different logged in users can not be achieved in WordPress, practically. It should be something similar to an email account in which each user sees his/her own inbox. No doubt WordPress support individual user accounts, but the only page/section which is exclusive for each author is the “Author Profile” section.

All pages, posts and site data is stored globally in same database. There can not be two or more front pages for different logged in users. (May be there could, but I am not aware of such plugin or feature yet).

If user A is logged in, he can still see all other Home pages created by other users B, C, D, etc. On front end, which page will be shown for visitors who are not member of your site? These are some practical situations which can not be implemented directly. There can be some plugin, but right now I am unable to find one. :)

Hi SaurabhSharma,

Thanks for your fast and kind answer!. You “post service” is really good! :)

We understood what you said, but maybe I didn’t explain myself very well, we already have a “member plugin”, and every user has it own “area”, example: Peter belongs to Marketing, and John belongs to IT”, through MySQL we related those “areas” to categories ID, our last step (at least that’s what we think) is to use “dynamic categories on your short-codes”, example:

Instead [post_list num=”4” cats=”1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12”]

We would like to use something like [post_list num=”4” cats=”areas categories id from logged user”]

Maybe we need to find the shortcodes script to change it.

What do you think?
