Common WordPress Installation Issues
Missing style sheet error when installing the theme
A common issue that can occur with users new to installing WordPress themes is a “Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing” error message being displayed when trying to upload or activate the theme. This error message does not mean that the theme you have purchased is broken, it simply means it has been uploaded incorrectly. Luckily, there is a very easy fix.
Frequently Asked Questions
I am having trouble making the appointment form look like it does on the demo site.
You will need the Contact Form 7 wordpress plugin and you will need to add classes to the date and time fields for the dropdowns to appear. This is the code that is used:
<p>Your Name *<br /> [text* YourName 25/40]</p> <p>Your Phone Number *<br /> [text* YourPhone 25/40]</p> <p>Date & Time Requested *<br /> [text Date 25/40 class:datepicker class:bookform_date "Date"][text Time class:timepicker class:bookform_time "Time"] </p><p>Additional Information<br /> [textarea Info 5/5 ]</p> [submit "Make Request"]
I am having problems with the slider not showing up / working properly.
1 – Try adding at least 2 images to the slider. The slider will not work with just 1 image in it.
2 – Make sure when you create a slider, name it “homepage-slider” right away BEFORE pressing publish. If you publish it with no name, or a different name and rename it to homepage-slider AFTER , then it will not show up.
3 – Please don’t choose any of the skins/themes for Nivo slider if you would like it to look like it does on the demo site. Keep the theme to “none”.
