Hi, Glad to hear you are here.

Is it possible to use the red color CSS of the skin 3 with the all the other features of Skin 1?

I want to make a site using your theme in black background, red details. Please let me know,

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

that should be possible, because all the colored details are images (if I remember well), so I think you can just update the paths of the graphic files in the css of the skin 1 with the graphic files of the skin 3.

Open the parkerandkent2011/css/theme/pk/pk_skin1.css file and using your css editor find & replace function replace all the skin1 with skin3.

Then save and update the file on the server.

Let me know if it’s clear,

Parker

Hello,

Can you please help me set my homepage slider like you have set for the demo of the html version of your theme?

I wish to replace the videos with my youtube videos too, which I am not able to figure out how.

Thank you.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I don’t know if you have installed the demo contents to replicate one of the previews, but in any case I will refer to the skin 1…

In the WP admin area click on the “Slides” menu button… you will see all the slides used for the home page.

Click on one slide (just to explain how everything works) and you will see the selected slide admin page. In this page you will see the excerpt field for the caption and below the PK Options panel.

In this panel there are all the options to edit the slide. The last 2 options determine the file type to load and the file itself. First select “Video” in the “Select file type” option and then below in the “Video:” option choose YouTube and enter the video ID only (is explained how to just below the input field).

It’s easier to make it than to explain it :)

Let me know if you have any problem.

Please have a look here http://themes.parkerandkent.net/milky/skin_1/#/0 . This is the demo of html version of your theme. Please tell me how can I set a slider like you have set here; the one in your WP version is different.

Also, I’m sorry that I could not figure out how do I insert my own videos in the slider.

Please note that my knowledge is limited, I am a beginner however I have already set a few websites successfully using themeforest’s WP themes. I will appreciate your support helping me set the above slider.

Thank you very much.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

exactly… the slider of the WP version is a little different (it’s better)... it is like the one in the preview… the xhtml version of Milky has a different slider, also if very similar.

I don’t understand if you succeed adding a YouTube video to it or if you need more help… let me know.

Parker ;)

Hello Parker,

I have the WP version of your theme however I wish to have the slider like the one your xhtml version has. Is it possible?

Also, I tried to edit the sliders (to insert my videos) as you explained. I can see my youtube video’s address is already saved in the first slider “Robotic” but i do not see any changes at my website. The sliders still show your videos!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no, isn’t possible to use the xhtml slider. The WP slider is completely dynamic, it’s built by the options you set… the xhtml one is just plain html that can’t be populated by dynamic data.

Did you select “YouTube” and entered the video ID only as explained below the option? If you entered the full URL of the video it won’t work.

If you think you did everything correctly without success, send me a message through my profile page with your theme URL and login so I can check myself what you did and what’s wrong ;)

Hello Parker,

Thank you very much for your help, I have successfully set my own videos in the sliders now.

Just to share with you, I really like the slider style of your theme’s html version (I am talking about the ‘buttons to switch to next and previous sliders’ which you have created within the slider information area). In the WP version buttons are out side the slider area.

Anyways, this too is nice [If the other style is not possible :)].

Okay now, I need some more help here; the background of my posts is showing white color. I checked the code and it is ’#ffffff’. At your demo site the posts’ background is ’#0d120c’.

This white background is not looking nice, please help me know how do I change this.

Thank you again :)

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

you’re welcome :)

Every post can have a different background color. For this reason the color must be set in each post edit screen.

Below the post editor, you should find the PK Options Panel with all the options for the post. Over there you can set the background color with a color picker.

If you don’t see this panel, check the screen options. The button to show the screen options is located above the save/update button of the post, in the top right corner of the page.

Let me know ;)

Thank it helped,

now can you let me know where can I edit this footer area? http://awesomescreenshot.com/0807r3o92

thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

in the WP Admin menu on the left, PK Options -> Footer Options ;)

Parker

Please help me. It is not possible to change anything in the PK option manager. Any changes with images … will be refused and resored. Also I cannot set featured image? What is wrong?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

which version of WP are you using?

Milky is already updated and tested to work with the latest WP 3 .4.

Probably you are using a plugin that isn’t ready for the latest WP version and maybe it is breaking the site.

Try deactivating one by one your plugins and see if everything works fine again.

Let me know about your WP version and tell me also which plugins you have activated, so I can have more info about your issue.

Parker

ParkerAndKent

Another thing… check also if any of your plugins need to be updated.

Hi Conny,

Hi! two things more Parker.

1- in the slideshow of my side www.roxa2bar.com only appears the first slide, it doesn’t want to show second slide

2- There is a broken image link appearing in one of my columms in homepage..how do I delete that broken image? If you can’t see it please see this link http://roxa2bar.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/error.jpg

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

1: that slider item is empty… check if you entered all the options in the right way. Open the slide post and read all the PK Options to see if they’re set accordingly to your slider item type (image, video, etc).

2: that image is in the page content. So, edit the home page and in the editor remove from the text this part:

[pk_image image="http://milky.parkerandkent.com/milky/skin1/files/2011/10/h_04.jpg" title="Image" w="220" image_style="auto" h="0" align="none" icon="" action="" link="" link_target="_self" lightbox_gallery_id=""]

Let me know if it’s clear ;)

Hello, I need help with this broken links in these pictures, I can not solve it, I’m using the short codes, thanks a lot

http://johnriano.com/?page_id=267
ParkerAndKent

Hi,

does your server support timthumb.php? Contact your hosting support and ask about it, I see a 500 internal server error. Shortcodes need timthumb to resize the images to the size you set, while the theme use WP images.

Thank you so much, I am asking, and I hope the answer soon, but if does not support it, how you could use only the icon zoom and lightbox, how should it be the syntax?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

you’re welcome ;)

Your server must support it, probably the problem is just caused by a misconfiguration.

Before I explain you the whole code to do what you need manually in your post editor, try contacting your hosting support. Tell them that timthumb isn’t working on your theme and link them the page that doesn’t work.

In case they can’t solve, let me know and we’ll see what to do ;)

hello,

I bought the theme, I like it, but I have a problem when I import the demo for the skin 1:

Failed to import “PK Contact Form”: Invalid post type wpcf7_contact_form Failed to import “Simple Contact Form”: Invalid post type wpcf7_contact_form

what can I do? I need your ask as soon as possible, please

thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

did you activate the Contact Form 7 plugin? Basically failed the import of the forrms, but in any case in the PK Help section you find the code for the form to use with CF7 .

Let me know if you have problems, eventually I can give you more help.

Hello Parker, it’s me again, the hosting support people finally answer about the timthumb.php, but surprisingly, they told me that everything is activated, and is supposed that may work, what should i do? thank you for your valuable help.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

well, click here and see the error by yourself:

http://johnriano.com/wp-content/themes/pk2011_milky/timthumb/timthumb.php

The timthumb script on your server returns a 500 internal error… so they didn’t check or they lied :)

Give them this link… and let me know.

Hello there,

This may be a dumb question, but I purchased this theme in 2010. How do I get an updated version? Do I need to repurchase?

Thanks!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

please, log in with the account you used to purchase the theme. As you can see you don’t have the “Purchased” ribbon, so maybe you’re logged with the wrong account.

Once logged with the right account you can redownload from your downloads page.

hey on the theme is there any way I can make the width of the widget bar larger, then what it is now, http://jayera55.com/?cat=25 can u email me back on shaziyaramji@googlemail.com

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

sorry, but that isn’t possible, otherwise you would need to edit all the other elements of the theme to match the new width… There are 3 sidebars before the footer that can be customized for each page, if you need more space.

Another question? to you http://jayera55.com/?cat=31 on this page I am trying to make a portfolio for Video Animation, So When you see the title of the Video (you should have a image, and when you click it a youtube video pops up) can that happen as you have it on the demo, hard to figure ouT hows it done as i tried shortcodes

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

when you add a new work, first set a featured image and then set your video information below the editor of the work. If you check better, below the editor and the shortcodes manager, there is the PK Options box with all the available options for the post. Don’t use the shortcodes in this case, they are meant to be used exclusively within the page content ;)

Can you talk me through it please, its really confusing, when i set it in the options pannel , it comes up with the video but in the small box, I want to be able to select the pic and the video pops up, can you talk me through a step by step guide please…

and when you get into the post as well , i want the video to be there watched… when you click into the post

Can you step by step help its confusing me, and I am not using shotcodes at all

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

let me understand… you want the picture in the works grid, that if clicked, opens the video with the lightbox… while when you enter in the work page, you want the video already visible in the post?

Parker

Yes

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

what you want isn’t possible. The options are 2:

1: small video in the grid, full video in the post (as for preview)

2: small image with video lightbox in the grid, big image with video lightbox in the post, in both cases you have to click on the featured images to open the video.

A mix of the 2 options isn’t possible, so let me know which one you prefer.

Hello,

I’m trying to translate your theme without any success. I’ve used poedit and Codestyling Localization and it doesn’t work. Thanks for your help!

ALex

ParkerAndKent

Hi Alex,

can you explain me exactly the steps you followed to translate, which po files you created and can you also provide a link to your theme, so I can check which language you are using.

Cheers,

Parker

Default-user

I used first Codestyling Localization to make a french translation, it didn’t worked, then i used Poedit. I can’t give you a link for now because i’m building my web site offline with mamp.

Thx for your help

ParkerAndKent

Ok,

first of all, did you follow the instructions in the PK Theme Help admin section, under the Theme Translation paragraph?

And, have you created the fr_FR.po and fr_FR.mo files?

Parker

Default-user

Ok the translation worked for ‘pk_text_domain_front’ but not for ‘pk_text_domain’. By the way, i followed the instructions of the help section, but one thing is missing, you didn’t mentioned that we had to enter the keywords ‘’ & ‘_’ in poedit.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

which keywords? Did you create the fr_FR files in the translate/admin folder too, where the pk_text_domain.po is located?

Parker

Default-user

Yes i put it in the translate/admin folder. The keywords i talked are in config menu of Poedit, maybe in english their names are tags. I didn’t translate the entire doc, maybe that’s why it doesn’t work?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

is the WP admin in french or english?

Parker

Default-user

wp-admin is in french, by the way other translated WP themes are working fine.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I understand, but not being able to check by person what you’ve done it’s hard for me to say what’s wrong… what’s not translated in the admin? What exactly are you trying to translate?

Eventually, I’ll check better when you put it online, so I can make some tests.

Cheers,

Parker

ParkerAndKent

So,

you have produced the pk2011_milky/translate/admin/fr_FR.mo file and it doesn’t work?

While the pk2011_milky/translate/theme/fr_FR.mo works fine, right?

Parker

Default-user

pk2011_milky/translate/theme/fr_FR.mo works fine.

pk2011_milky/translate/admin/fr_FR.mo doesn’t work, some fields are translated like – select – , but General options is not.

Default-user

Ok I solved the problem, I copy this line : ” load_theme_textdomain(‘pk_text_domain’, get_template_directory() . ’/translate/admin’); ” just after ”<?php” on line 1 of the function document. Now everything is working fine. Maybe There’s a better way.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

ok, I’ll check why the default function of the text domain isn’t working as expected. Glad you solved,

Hi Parker, I was just wondering if you could help me with the accordion toggles. I have soundcloud players appearing inside them and when the page reloads often the accordion stays open whilst everything loads and then closes back up. Is there a way to set this so the accordion defaults to closed as the page loads? The soundcloud widgets are html5. Here is the link: http://www.tristancoelho.com/music/

Thanks for your help! Tristan

ParkerAndKent

Hi Tristan,

I see it closed while loading. Anyway, you see it open because the speed of your internet connection. If the loading is slow you will see the various elements loading before js hides them… try to load the page a couple of times and you’ll see that when the page is cached you will see it closed…

We can’t do much about this… it’s html :)

Hi Parker,

Is there a way to call the price function of the product page via a shortcode. For example : [pk_price] Thank you

Alex

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

that shortcode isn’t available by default, but I created it for you. Paste this within your functions.php file:

function pk_sc_price($atts, $content = null, $class) {

    return pk_get_meta('price');

}

add_shortcode('pk_price', 'pk_sc_price');

Parker

Default-user

Thanks a lot! Can I ask you a little more? It would be great if the shortcode include also the CSS attributes. In fact i’d like to display the price and buy now items, just as they are displayed in the product page but somewhere inside the content.

Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

do you want to display also the buy now button with the link?

In any case I don’t think is possible to use the same css classes, because they’re specific for the post meta area… with particular margins etc… not good for the contents area.

Why don’t you simply use the shortcodes to recreate these buttons within your contents?

I’d also like to see a link to a page where you’re trying to add these buttons, just to understand what you’re trying to do.

Parker

Default-user

Thank for your help, I made a new shortcode based by the one you gave me, it looks like this :

function pk_sc_buynow($atts, $content = null, $class) { 
    return '<a href=".pk_get_meta(" buy_now_link="">'.pk_get_meta('buy_now_link').'</a>';

}

add_shortcode('pk_buynow', 'pk_sc_buynow');

It shows me the link but i wanted to go further and display the link as displayed in the product page so i tried this :

function pk_sc_buynow($atts, $content = null, $class) {

    return '<a href=".pk_get_meta(" buy_now_link="">'.pk_get_meta('buy_now_link').'
    '<img src="' global $pk_skin; echo PK_THEME_DIR; '/parkerandkent2011/images/theme/' echo $pk_skin; '/button_buy_now_detail_page.png" />'
    </a>';

}

add_shortcode('pk_buynow', 'pk_sc_buynow');

Obviously this is the wrong way.

Thanks for your help

Alex

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

what’s wrong with your last try? I can test it, so describe me what happens and what doesn’t work.

Parker

Default-user

When i enter the last code with img scr, an error 500 appears, due of a syntax error in the function. By the way i pasted this code in the pk_product.php file.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

yes, the syntax is completely wrong, try this:

function pk_sc_buynow($atts, $content = null, $class) {

    global $pk_skin;

    return '<a href="'.pk_get_meta('buy_now_link').'"><img src="'.PK_THEME_DIR.'/parkerandkent2011/images/theme/'.$pk_skin.'/button_buy_now_detail_page.png" /></a>';

}

add_shortcode('pk_buynow', 'pk_sc_buynow');

Parker

Default-user

Thank you so much ! It’s working just fine.
