Hello there,

I just bought this great theme and i am trying to put this up as the example on this website. Is there any tutorial/ video how i can get it as it is shown?

The documentation pdf is limited.

I hope you ca help out.

Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

in the documentation.pdf we remind ou to the theme docs in the admin, the docs are here:

Appearance -> Theme Docs in the WP admin. You will find a video explaining how to set up the demo contents.

Dear Parker, as I have already informed you, I have met with some strange behavior of Sold! theme after previous updating. Today I updated the theme 2.0.7. -> 2.0.8 more thoroughly. I replaced the folder pk2012_sold via FTP firstly on my test site (subdomain). Unfortunately I have not checked the pages, just replaced there 2 lines in the page-home-standard.php as you kindly help me before, and check the working of it, it was Ok. Then I replaced the folder of theme on my working site in the same way, and have got the familiar problem with theme again. What is this problem? Please, see description as below:

When I open any already created page, I see there the “default template” instead of already selected template.

When I try to create the new page, I can make it only with default template.

One time I have already sent you email about (I sent you three emails), but you were busy to answer me. I tried to repair the problem, but unsuccessfully. I have used the WP-database-reset plugin in order to make all clean, and I also reinstalled the WP one more, deactivated all plugins too, but I still couldn’t use the theme page templates. Only total new installation from zero was help me in that time. But now I have this problem again with 2.0.8. It was my fault – it would be better to replace only 3 updated files instead of whole folder today.

After a few ours I found the case of my problem. It is your pk2012_sold.zip file. Why you put there additional pk2012_sold folder? After unziping the themeforest downloading .zip there are the pk2012_sold.zip file (with others file) for installation. We can use it for traditional WP-way of installation of theme. And it works perfectly. But if I unzip this file and replace the folder in the server via FTP , the additional pk2012_sold folder appears in pk2012_sold theme folder in the server.

So, the decision was the simple deleting (or renaming) this unnecessary pk2012_sold folder from server, and then all worked as earlier.

I have wrote about my problem here in order to inform the other your customers. And, if I am right with this, no need place unnecessary second pk2012_sold folder inside of first pk2012_sold folder, which is just the copy. Please, check your zip file of theme in themeforest to be avoid the same topic with others.

By the way, thank you for 2.0.8. updating – now it is Ok the margins in widgets, and the tittle of blog is also right!

I think the additional pk2012_sold folder inside of the other pk2012_sold folder (both of them have the same theme files inside) is creating by winrar. When unziping, this software finds the already exist pk2012_sold folder, and places the pk2012_sold folder from .zip file inside to existed pk2012_sold folder (it already was in themeforest.zip archive). If I unzip the theme.zip archive to other folder location, it will be all right with updating.

So, now it is completely clear for me, thanks for your patience! Better later, than never :)

fotomaster

One more, just make all clean. It was my fault, the mistake was – no need unzip the pk2012_sold.zip file for updating, because the unzipped pk2012_sold folder is already in themeforest zip-archive. Sorry for my inattention. You may delete this topic, if you think…

Answer to Electroscope’s question: Changes won’t be saved after changing it.

Solution: First of all press the ‘Shop’ tab, then make your changes (e.g. change the currency etc.), press the save button. Now your changes should be saved.

Solution 2: Press another tab and then go back to the ‘Shop’ tab. Follow the instructions above. Should work.

@ Parker: Nobody likes to read all pages. True. But you are working on the forum thing. Right ? 8-) @ Parker 2: Can you copy&paste my answer for Electroscoe ? Tks.

Hi Angelito,

thanks for the help, I appreciate.

Yes, I’m working on our next theme that comes with a forum and we will use it for our support website. Unfortunately all these things require work and many hours. I hope to complete everything soon.

Hi.

I really want to buy your theme. However, I really 1st need to know what options I’d have for IE7 or earlier support? Should I be considering a re-direct to a basic site version? Or are there any other options through you guys?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

I’m still not sure if it’s a good thing to redirect to other sites in general, but I found this link and obviously it’s possible: http://www.daobydesign.com/blog/tips/css-html/detect-redirect-script-for-internet-explorer-ie/

It’s up to you if you want to redirect or just show the site with some CSS problems to old IE browsers…

Would you let me see IE6 / 7 renders if I were to remove the header line to see just how bad the CSS issues would be?

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

send me an email via the contact form on my profile page. We must do that on the preview, so I cannot leave the theme like that for too long, so better if we do that in the same moment.

Parker

Hey! Thanks for previous discussion, now my question concerns the simple images placing into HTML -editor in WP. Why when I place there the simple string of images (as below), the Sold! theme shows the images in column? I have already checked the working of this in my others themes – the flags are in line there.

<a href="http://www.mysite.com/language1"><img src="http://www.mysite.com/language/images/flags/language1.png" title="language1" alt="language1" width="20" height="13" /></a><a href="http://www.mysite.com/language2"><img src="http://www.mysite.com/language/images/flags/language2.png" title="language2" alt="language2" width="20" height="13" /></a><a href="http://www.mysite.com/language3"><img src="http://www.mysite.com/language/images/flags/language3.png" title="language3" alt="language3" width="20" height="13" /></a>

Please, help me with this images, I really cannot do nothing with Sold! theme, if I need to place these little images in line (in my other themes I can do it without of problems). Only one image in line it is strange behavior, I think.. Could you check it please?

In order to be avoid this behavior I created the common png image with 3 this flags in line, and tried to use the usermap tag (as below), but unfortunately this also doesn’t work (and in my other themes it doesn’t work too):

<img src="http://www.mysite.com/language/images/flags/flags.png" width="100" height="13" usemap="#lang" />
<map name="lang">
   <area shape="rectangle" coords="10,0,30,0" href="http://www.mysite.com/language1/" />
   <area shape="rectange" coords="40,0,60,0" href="http://www.mysite.com/language2/" />
   <area shape="rectange" coords="70,0,90,0" href="http://www.mysite.com/language3/" />
</map>

But in this case I cannot make this line in header, likes in screenshot here.

Just tried the code in my preview, works perfectly. Be sure to update the file on your local server and to empty the browser cache…

Remember, the file is footer-social-networks.php

Parker

fotomaster

Yes, you right! It works now. If I tell, what was the case of my problem, you don’t believe me :). But it was well experience for me. The problem was with additional pk2012_sold folder inside of themes pk2012_sold folder (it was a long story about my fault as we discussed earlier) – when I found the case of my previous problem, I just renamed this pk2012_sold folder as “delete”. But all themes files still remained in this folder. The theme worked perfectly after this, and I forgot about.

But WP built editor didn’t forget :). And when I opened the footer-social-networks.php with help of editor, the editor found this file in “delete” folder location. And I made all changes there. But the theme uses the right pk2012_sold folder and ignores, of course, the so called “delete” folder :). That’s was the explanation – why I couldn’t see the changes.

So, I just moved this folder to trash, changed again the footer-social-networks.php file as you kindly offered me, and now it works perfectly! What is the day today?!

Thank you so much for support!

ParkerAndKent

I knew you were having issues of that type… you solved, so cool!

Hi Parker – Today I have 2 questions …

1) How do I remove from the breadcrumb links the product data type [ex: “Variable” , “Simple” – see: http://icancanopy.com/product/canopies/performance-shade-kit/ – this shows as “Home > Products > variable > Performance Shade Kit”

2) When making JPG ’s usually one can set the compression/quality level. Is it possible to increase the quality of the JPG ’s made when adding and setting the featured image for a product? (I tried to do a little research and have not found anything yet). Is it PrettyPhoto that makes the JPG ’s or some other tool? Can a setting parameter be added to increase the image quality? JPG compression has always hated the color red – that I get – and I can really see it here http://icancanopy.com/product/accessories/full-wall-mesh/ which is why I am looking for a way to improve the quality of my images – if possible.

THANKS !!!!

Hey Parker – I found a working solution to the JPG issue …

add the following code to the functions.php file

add_filter('jpeg_quality', function($arg){return 100;});

I tested it and it works. I don’t know what the default image quality is but the image on that page was 22KB’s and went up to 95KB’s after the change. Also you could tell the quality was better. I read that the WP quality was 60% and another person said 90%. Using Photoshop and doing the same scaling and JPG output I get about 62% image quality for the 22KB file and 100% was 95KB’s- so it looks as if it checks out correctly.

Now we both know!

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

yes, I was thinking about a filter… confirmed :)

Default quality seems to be 60.

Thanks for sharing,

Parker

KingRobb Purchased

Wow – and more imortant details (should you care and want to know) ...

I tried to dial down the KB’s by specifying a 90% quality add_filter('jpeg_quality', function($arg){return 100;});

... and my file size dropped back down to 22KB’s. Interesting! So the WP default image quality setting is in fact 90% – however its 90% quality looks like, and is the file size, of Photoshops “Save for Web” JPG at approx 62%. Hmm.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

mmm, I will make some tests myself about this, seems an interesting thing.

Parker

Yeah right! As I said not a lot to play with between 90%-100% and then 4 times the size. I am looking at the Image Magick WP plugin. My web host server does not yet support it but I know the owner and he is looking into the php core module to see if it is safe. Which it needs to be as the site may at some point in time have to be PCI compliant. But this could be a simple alternative for some. It also has a tool to regenerate thumbnail images.

Dear Sirs

We have installed the Sold theme on www.faarevejleefterskole.dk

We are very satisfied with the theme, however, not with the performance. The loading time is way to slow…

Can you help me with suggestions to what I can do in order to speed up loading time?

Either in the code, or a plugin? I have already installed Quick Cache without any change in performance.

I am looking very much forward to hearing from you.

Best regards Charlotte

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

well, it looks normal to me… then it’s full of images as background, so maybe are them to slow down… also if I didn’t notice this.

Usually the speed of a site depends on the server, not on the site itself… other than optimizing the contents and using a cache plugin I do not know what to say…

Cheers,

Parker

Some how I don’t have page option anymore to choose a page template?

I guess i am doing something wrong now. if i add a new page i have no attributes or extra’s…...... I already looked into widgets.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

probably you have a plugin breaking. Probably you activated WPML and I think that your server doesn’t match its minimum requirements: http://wpml.org/home/minimum-requirements/

Try disabling it and see if everything works fine again.

Parker

CZOO Purchased

Dear Parker:

In principle, we agree with your point of the server possibly being too slow.

But have been comparing your theme with e.g. King Size which have been at least as heavy on the image side, so heavy images really don’t explain the lag in this case.

According to our analysis the it’s the css and js that’s being aggregated by the theme’s php that seems to be piling up. The file and size of the this data is of course in it self quite large due to the many skin options. But we have a hunch that this merging and minimization of the css and js is taking place every time or almost every time a page is requested on the server. Also regardless of the Quick Cache plugin we have been installing and tweaking.

When we test the site performance through ManageWP.com, we get feedback like this:

the website is slower than 78% of all tested websites

The two biggest problems seems to be these two URL ’s:

http://faarevejleefterskole.dk/wp-content/themes/pk2012_sold/css/pk_allinone_css.php?skin=custom&path=%2Fvar%2Fwww%2Fwww.faarevejleefterskole.dk%2Fwww%2Fwp-load.php&ecommerce&bbpress=no&ver=5015 http://faarevejleefterskole.dk/wp-content/themes/pk2012_sold/js/pk_allinone_js.php?ver=5015

There is possibly some other cache plugin that could handle these URLs as cached data, but our priority would be to get rid of any excessive data (in this case: css) BEFORE minimizing and caching. That being said we would like to get these URLs cached.

Don’t you have some kind of indication as to where we might start?

Or perhaps you have better experience with another cache plugin than quick cache?

We are basically just asking for some best practice with your specific theme code. ;-)

Thanks for your assistance in advance.

Best regards Charlotte

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

go to Appearance -> Theme Options -> Advanced options and turn off the performances optimization.

In this way the scripts won’t be combined and minified, so will be loaded the normal css and js scrips.

At this point, your cache plugin should do the whole job. You can also try the Total Cache plugin too…

Be sure to set them correctly, I know that sometimes they break the styles when they combine and minify many scripts (consider all the theme, ecommerce, forum, etc. ones).

Cheers,

Parker

Hi there,

I hope this question is not postet 1000times before:

I want to have 150/150px images on frontpage inside the blogteasers. I found no declaration inside the funktions.php, pk_funktions.php or in page-home-standart.php. Can you help me out?

Cheers Dennis

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

no, first time question :)

Open the framework/pk_theme.php file and go to line 75:

add_image_size('thumb-latest-posts', 80, 80, true);

Change 80 with 150. Then regenerate your thumbnails with this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

Hello,

I’m having some troubles customizing a couple things in my site using the Sold! Theme. Maybe you can help.

1. In Appearance>Theme Options>Skin I’m changing the settings for different item’s colours with no success. Can anyone explain why? Specifically I want to change the colour of the navigation bar. Other things too, but mostly that.

2. I’d like to install a web-font to customize the typography on my site, but I’m not familiar with how to do this with a Wordpress theme.

Thanks for reading, Joel

ParkerAndKent

Hi Joel,

1: Be sure to select “Custom skin” in the “Skin option” at the beginning of the page, it’s the second option. Which version of the theme are you using? (Appearance -> Themes -> Check version next to the Sold! thumbnail)

2: In the Appearance -> Theme Docs -> Theme Options section I explain how to assign a font to different tags thanks to the Typohraphy options page.

Let me know if this helps.

One more question,

If I wanted to add custom icons to my nav, how could I do this?

Hi !

Have just bought Sold ! (november 16th) and installed it on local (MAMP). I downloaded all recommended plugins and activated them. And now get a WHITE PAGE without any access to my admin… !

Tried to remove all plugins by canceling folders from wp-content/plugin and still get the all white page with NO access.

I’m afraid there is now sth wrong with my data base… What’s the problem and how to fix it ?

PLEASE HELP !

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

probably one of the plugins is breaking because your local server doesn’t match the minimum requirements… maybe the wrong php version… which php and mysql version are you running?

Btw, reset the database and make a fresh installation of WP. Once done, just activate the theme and let me know. Depending on your php and mysql I can tell you which plugin could give you the problem.

Maybe the issue is elsewhere, but being on your local computer I cannot check personally. If you have a production server, let’s try tpo install the theme there together… otherwise i’ll try to follow your local installation anyway.

Let me know,

Parker

Hi !

Thanks for the quick answer. :) I’m running WP 3 .4.2. (updated yesterday), php 5.3.6, MySQL 5.5.9 on MAMP 2 .0 Does it look correct ?

Would you have an idea about which plugin would be a problem on local server ? Tried to deactivate all but with no result.

I would rather prefer being able to work on local ant then export website when ready…

Let me know,

Best regards.

ParkerAndKent

Hi,

maybe the problem isn’t related to any plugin… maybe there is a problem with the installation of WordPress itself, having a blank window doesn’t look like a plugin conflict.

Unfortunately I can’t help more than this unless we can work together on a server online, where I can access…

The only thing I can say is to reinstall everything, WP, databases, etc and try again to see if the issue still happens.

Let me know,
