Hi, Please

1) Back up your website data first.

2) Download webzine folder from ftp space (\wp-content\themes\) in local hard disk and back up this folder.

3) Remover the webzine folder from ftp after download

4) Install v1.5.3

Update is harder than I thought :P

I tried to add custom google font with latin-extended set but after I changed header.php as you explained before at first it works but later it’s changed back as selected from Webzine General Settings. Can you add Latin-extended sat as option?

Hi there

I am new to using wordpress but I had my site pretty much up and running using your template. It looks great but I have a few niggles I really would appreciate your help with the following problems.

My site is: www.marksvocalstudio.ca

a) When I updated to the most recent Wordpress version my brick slider broke. Now it always says its loading, can you please advise how to fix this. I have read a few people have this problem but with my lack of knowledge I don’t want to go butchering the code so if you could detail where to find this problem and how to resolve it that would be great. b)How to change the fonts of the menu headers on the home page. I know I can change the colour when you hover over the menu title but I need the actual colour changed. Like I say I am new to this so if you could be specific as to where in the code I can find this detail. c) the map function will not work. When I insert the url for the map I want and insert it, on my site it just leaves a blank square.

Once again a huge thanks if you could help me resolve these issues so I can start using my site for my business.

Many Thanks

Hi, thank you for purchasing our theme.

a) Please update to webzine theme to v1.5.3, i noticed your version is 1.5.

You could follow the process:

1) Back up your website data first if necessary.
2) Download webzine folder from ftp space (\wp-content\themes\) in local hard disk and back up this folder.
3) Remover the webzine folder from ftp after download
4) Install v1.5.3

If the slider still does not work, please send your wp-admin to uiueux@gmail.com if you don’t mind.

b) Do you want to change menu font family, color or hover color?

c) Also need updated to 1.5.3

Regards!

Hi Thanks so much for the response.

a) Just to clarify, I did actually purchase the theme. It does not say I am a purchaser because a friend was helping me design my site and they used their existing account to download. Unfortunatley she has went awol with uni papers and I am left to finish what she started and hence my ignorance, so apologies for what are probably simple questions. This is actually relevant because I was wondering where I download the v1.53 update from? Will I need to use her account to access this from here since she purchased it originally on my behalf and as a secondary question, if this is the case and if I want to maintain my own site in future how would I go about accessing future updates?

b) I wanted to change the font and colour of my menu titles like “Home”, “About me” “Contact, because the current one is unclear over my background image. I know I can already change the hover font from the Webzine tab under General so I imagine I need to change the actual code for these other font/colour details. If you could just direct me where to find this and what part of the code I need to change please.

With regards to i-phone compatibility I will wait til I figure out the up date and see if that helps then try your plug in suggestion. And one final piece of advice, what is the best way to back up my site before updating? This is probably an obvious question but even if you could direct me to a decent instruction video that would be soooo helpful.

Thanks for such a quick response and the education. I will definitely recommend your theme to anyone I know as your response here has been much faster and more useful than most big companies.

Many Thanks

Hi

1) Oh, it’s bad, Could you get your firend’s account?

2) You could change the codes(it’s for menu’s style) in “webzine/styles/light.css”
#navi ul li a{color:#999999;
  text-shadow:#F8F8F8 1px 1px 1px;}

3) You login wp-admin and find “Tool>Export”( Select all content) in leftbar. You’ll get a xml file. It’s the data file for your blog.

Good luck!

Sorry One other thing I forgot to mention in my message above:

Before the update, when I used i-phone to look at the site, the menu scroll bar would appear allowing me to access all the different pages. Since the update to the new version of worpdress, the home page only shows the posts that are there with no way of accessing the menu to read the other pages?

Sorry for the additional request it’s just the i-phone functionality was one of the reasons I chose the template. Once again your advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have checked your site, i do not know why yet. After update, i’ll check it again. I think it’s not caused by wp updating, our theme demo site is running in wp3.4.1

You could also deactivate all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

You are welcome.

Regards!

Hi, the theme looks great, however I have these questions:

Is it possible to show adds in the waterfall view? So that maybe every 10th box contains one or more adds and not a teaser to an article?

Re there any moreinformation about what the advertisment manager can do?

Thanks Hendrik

bwsm
bwsm Author

Thanks Hendrik, glad you like it.

The ads could be inserted in waterfall list item(one of top 5), however not supported js ad codes (like google adsense) and filterable template.

You could also set the ads in top middle and bottom in list-page, page and post. These positions could be set js codes.

Regards!

Great great theme.

I want to buy this theme and have a question regarding how SEO friendly this theme is.

Any thoughts on that?

bwsm Author

Hi thanks,

We made the webzine theme as SEO friendly HTML structure. If you want to make more SEO , you could use some plugin (e.g. All in One SEO Pack)

Regards!

Hello,

Can you please tell me the css to put a shadow behind the items in the browser window so that they stand out against a light background? My personal site uses your theme http://www.meganbrown.net/

and I would like to coordinate it with my professional site http://mebeimagery.com/ (where there is a shadow to make the central part stand out)

I would also like to make the white of the background of each of the “polaroids (or blog listings)” a pure white. Please advise to the CSS of that as well.

Thank you! Megan

Hi, thank you for purchasing our theme.

I think that is the css codes you wanted:

li.list_box,.slogn_full, .slogn_half{ background-color:#fff; 
box-shadow:0 0 4px #444; }

You could add it in wp-admin – webzine – GENERAL – Custom CSS code box

Regards!

Hi. THanks so much for getting back with me with a solution! That worked great except for the very right edge and the very top edge under the quote, as well as the header and footer.

Any suggestions for that last little bit?

Also

1. do you have code to put the LOGO in the center with the menu below it, centered?

2. Can you add the BEBAS font to the font options?

Thanks again~ Megan

Hi, please update the css codes for block:
li.list_box,.slogn_full, .slogn_half,.clum2_sidebar_unit li.widget-container,.singal_main,.guidewrap,.quote_full,.quote_half{ background-color:#fff; 
box-shadow:0 0 4px #444; }
.headerbar{ background-color:#fff; 
box-shadow:0 4px 2px #CCC; }
.headerbar{ background-color:#fff; 
box-shadow:0 -4px 2px #CCC; }
#footunder{background-color:#fff;}

I noticed there is a little problem in main menu, please go to “webzine > HEADER ” in leftbar of wp-admin page, make the “Hide subtitle of menu” option selected.
It could stop the submenu jump if without subtitle in level one menu?

bwsm
bwsm Author

The other quuestions:

1) This is for logo center:
h1#logo{ float:none; text-align:center }

2) Is the BEBAS google font? If it is, I need to change options file. Please send a mail to uiueux@gmail.com. I’ll send you the file.

You are welcome!

nevermind, found it!

Hi, please check the section “How to set the slider?” in faq page

Regards!

Just a question. I have imported using XML file and everything, so it is working fine. But I see that when I set the “HOME” page as WordPress static, and did not select any category for “List – Category”, it’s also including the “Page” together with “Posts” types altogether, including the “HOME” page itself. Is this normal?

I don’t want to include the Pages, how can I do that? I was kinda surprises because this is the first theme that includes the Pages into the list. Here is the snapshot what I am refering to:

Thank you.

Hi, you need to select a category(“List – Category”) displayed in the page.

How can I remove the ‘Sorry, No posts.’ on the home page when I remove all the waterfalls?

bwsm
bwsm Author

Hi

Which template you used for homepage? You need to remove the codes in the template like as fullwidth.php:
<p class="nopost"><?php _e('Sorry, No posts.','ux'); ?></p>

Regards

@bwsm

Sorry, but I think you’ve missed the point. I know i need to select category(“List – Category”), to display a certain category. But this is BUG * for displaying pages. Because they should *NEVER EVER get displayed in a list. Only the “post” type posts should get listed.

Pages are set as “page” for a reason in WordPress.

Because of this problem, I am forced to assign all the posts under a parent category, which doesn’t make sense if I want to display everything “All” from the front page.

What if I want to display Blogs too on the front page that is a different root Parent category? It doesn’t make sense move the “Blog” under “All”. BTW , I have used a lot of infinite scroll themes, they all follow WordPress post type rules, except this theme.

Thanks.

Thank you very much! Will be waiting for the fix.

After installing WP, Webzine theme, importing data, I can’t seem to make the image and gallery mouse hover to display the magnifying and arrow icon to appear on the list items, so it will display the pop up or redirect to the main blog.

Couldn’t find the settings anywhere. Do I need to install anything to make that happen?

Thank you.

bwsm Author

Please re-install latest version again, the latest version has be updated.

@bwsm

I see that the page listing bug is fixed, thank you. But the mouse hover on list item problem is not fixed yet, please refer to the snapshot below:

Ok, good for you.

Thank you for purchasing our theme.

Hello, Love the theme…but we are having some difficulty with the rotating sliders in the Brick Slide theme with the latest version of Webzine. We have uploaded 4 sliders, but only 3 sliders show at first, then afterwards only 2 of the 4 show. Is there a setting where we can adjust this? Our slider is located at:

No matter what option I use (Date/Time, Random, Title), it does the same thing. I am using 5 slides total. It will show the 1st slide in the order, go to the 2nd slide, and then back to the 1st slide.

bwsm Author

I suggest you restore fullwidth.php file and try to set the slide order again.

We figured out what was wrong in the code. Thank you!
