Hi,

now increasingly recognize the template Vulcan and more I like it :) It’s great, but I have a question. I am weak when it comes to encoding also did not know that much, but I would like the template to get rid of a few items:

1) In the footer we have a logo, contact details, and the right of the Company News. Just below that are links.

If you want to get rid of the upper parts or logos, information, company news, and leave only a few buttons exactly what I need to do? Is it enough to remove the code from the footer.php?

I ask for instructions from the moment you delete code? When I tried to do it, breaks footer

2) In creating the menu and submenu is one strange element. Namely, if you go in the menu to the right of the sidebar is the name of the menu, it will display all the pages in the site. How do I delete a note: “more” so that it remains the name of the menu?

3) Above the footer is part of testimontial and clients, and also here I can get the instructions from which part to which i should delete the code to remove it? and where, which file?

By the way, if the customer logos can easily move to another submenu?

4) Is there a plugin for WP, which makes a nice visual map of the site for the user, so that everything is easy to find

It’s enough when it comes to my questions :) Thanks in advance for your help. Yours!

Indonez

Hello,

1) yes you just need to remove some line of code in footer.php file, all code located inside <div id="footer-address">...</div> section

2) open sidebar.php file, and find and remove below code :

<?php echo __('More ','vulcan');?>

3) please open index.php file, you can remove the 2th and 3rd columns that start with <!-- begin of content column 2 --> and <!-- begin of content column 3 -->

4) did you mean something like http://yoast.com/html-sitemap-wordpress/ or http://pengbos.com/blog/slick-html-sitemap?

Thanks.

Hi, I have been in contact with my web host, they say there should be no impediment to Timthumb working, we have set the permissions to the cache to 777, 755 , and tried a few more combinations to make sure, we have set timthumb.php permissions to 777, 755, 644 as recommended on the timthumb troubleshooting site. I have even tried updating the timthumb.php code ( without success and returned the original code). I have test the addresses of the images www. versus no www. etc. and also test using relative path addresses to the images. I have also tested that the image extensions are valid ( .jpg etc) the file sizes are small also.

I really feel I have tried everything to fix this item and would be very grateful for help. (The site is virtually useless without images) Thanks Carmel

Indonez

Hi, I will remove functionality in next update version, since there’s many issue with timthumb.php script and hosting provider.

Thanks.

Indonez one more think ;-)

I have a few questions, because it is the final stage of work on the template before it starts. Have the same problems typically meticulous.

1) in the contact form after sending a test message to your e-mail receives illegible text from the field Message – “Comments: Tre?›Ä‡”

Probably has something to do with Polish characters but how to fix it?

2) I changed the titles in the contact form but do not know where to change the name of the “Send Now” I could not find a ruler responsible for the item in footer.php

3) in every page of the menu is a long gray bar with the page title and description, which you can add. after adding description it would be centered so that they are in the middle of the field just as the title – for example http://www.platinumexpert.pl/kontakt/ here you can see that this description is not in the middle as title, look like after one

4) Contact Form -> What should I do to area field was not required? If I remove some of the class = “required” nothing changes, you still have to enter all the data.

5) At what point and where I can edit the appearance of messages about success, error, information, warning? I want to make corners little more rounded :))

6) Thank you for sending the link to the site map plugin – last time – it’s ok but is there something similar to this plugin as used on this site? http://nobelspv.com/pl/mapa-witryny This one looks really greatfull :)

It’s probably all of my questions, besides everything seems clear, well except for a small problem with the bullets exactly – “arrowlist” because It do not working well – when use “arrowlist” nothing see but see the margin

Thanks a lot, Best Regards :)

Indonez

Hello,

1) the contact form in vulcan theme just standard contact form, if you want more advance features, you can use contact form plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contact-form-7/ as replacement

2) it’s used and image, you can find this in images folder of vulcan theme and find send-now.gif file.

3) try to add the following css code in theme options => styling options => custom css :

.description {
  margin:8px 0 0;
}

4) you need modify the code in contact-template.php file for this, I suggest you to use contact form plugin as mentioned in point no. 1

5) you can manage this from vulcan theme options => contact info => success message box

6) maybe you can try this or this plugins.

Thanks.

Hi! I wonder if you can help me with a small problem I have with my site. My fist problem is the slideshow, it has some gray color going below the slidshow on the first page. This is only a problem in explorer and if I stop the slider from moving the gray color disappearance but then the hole meaning of the slider it gone.

To stop the slideshow I just delete the minus (-) infront om the number 1.

<?php $slideshow_order = get_option(‘vulcan_slideshow_order’) ? get_option(‘vulcan_slideshow_order’) : “date”; if (post_type_exists(‘slideshow’)) { query_posts(array( ‘post_type’ => ‘slideshow’, ‘showposts’ => -1,’orderby’ => $slideshow_order)); ?> I hope you understand what my problem is about. /Erhan

I also have problems with timthumb, but if I browse my site with a wordpress logged in user I can see the images perfectly fine. But if I browse the site from internet without logged in I can’t see those images. And if I take the URL and paste on a new tab I receive the following error:

•This website requires you to log in.

I’m not enforcing login or something like that and I already set the permissions to 775 or 777, do you know what could be the problem? Thanks

I solved my problem, it wasn’t related to the vulcan theme, it was my “WP Better Security Plugin”. There I have enabled the tweak “Filter Suspicious Query Strings” and with that item checked it filters the images for not logged in users. It’s working fine now. Thanks

Indonez

ok great, glad it’s working now! :)

Welcome Indonez.

It’s me again;)) hehehe.

A few questions again.

1) After changing size of slider the dots that inform users about number of slides are in the same place, they are in the middle of slider. Is possible to get them down?

2) The gray color template is very professional but I want to make little more contrast, life. I changed the style to blue in VULCAN Options -> styling

After changing footer grow much more :P Where can i find in css code for reduce the size of footer?

3) Is it possible to change the color of the font: a) in footer b) the Content in the 3 main boxes on the home page c) the general content of the body d) change the color of the menu and the hover effect after cursor over the button

I do not know exactly which commands refer to the colors of individual Elements. I’ll be glad for the help.

4) Last question :). Wordpress has sidebars. IN vulcan can i create some sidebars in the form of small pictures and put them sidebars on subpages? For example, “about us” I would like to add a small photo on the right side of the space referring to the team, and other photo for other page section, egzample help another photo, i need to this 2 sidebars, yes?

Question about change button home for icon is still valid :)

BEST REGARDS LILA

Indonez

Hello,

1) try to add the following css code in theme options => styling options => custom css :

#pager{
    top:375px;
}

you can increase 375px to fit your slideshow pager height

2) try to add the following css code in theme options => styling options => custom css :

#footer-content{
    height:263px;
}

you can decrease 263px

3) try to add the following css code in theme options => styling options => custom css :

a)

#footer-content p, #footer-content a{
  color: #f00;
}

b)

.front-box-content p { color: #f00;}

c)

body { color: #f00;}

d)

.navigation li a {color:#f00;}
.navigation li a:hover {color:#f00;}

replace all #f00 with your color

4) the sidebar widget places only available from predefined widget places, if you want to have unique sidebar, you can use widget sidebar.

Thanks.

Last think… SORRY for that :D

Is possible to add some kind of TEXTURE on the background?? of all pages?

one texture or 2-3 with random effect? It’s hard to make it? Only in css file?

:)

Indonez

you can add your background image for main body by adding below code in styling options => custom css box :

body { background-image: url(your_background_url); background-position: center center;}
