Hey Rd, love this theme – just a MENU question for you. I’ve set up bpmainmenu but when I click on the menu button, only the first menu item shows up and then it quickly disappears! Any thoughts?

Hi,

What plugins have you added recently? Can you turn all of them off and then turn them on one by one to see which one is causing the problem?

Thanks,

Hey Rd – FIXED!!! I turned off all the plugins and then turned them all back on again (I couldn’t isolate which one was causing the problem) – but it seems to have fixed it.

Thanks for your help – it’s great to have an author who ACTUALLY responds to these questions!! Much appreciated!!!

Great news glad to be of help. :)

Hi RD, i am on the latest version and it seems to have a conflict with this plugin (Advanced Social Widget MailChimp Edition) which i purchased on codecanyon. When that plugin is activated the “previous|next” buttons don’t show. Please assist as soon as you can.

realdesigns AUTHOR 4 days ago Flag Hi,

In WP admin Settings > Reading > Blog pages show at most change this to 2 for example. Does this work?

Rd

StartupBotswana PURCHASED 1 hour ago Flag Hi Rd, no it didn’t work. Fore more information, my “blog pages show at most is default number is 10, and i’m using wow mysite on a single installation with the main theme.” Like I said everything works well, if the above mentioned plugin in is not activated.

Hi,

I don’t know why this is happening. The pagination is core WordPress functionality and shouldn’t conflict with anything else. Can you send me a link to your mobile website page where you have the problem?

Thanks

Hi,

I’m not sure what’s going on there are no errors in Google Dev tool console. Please ask the plugin developer if they have experienced similar problems?

Thanks

Hey Rd…Ok next question!! I’ve seriously been trying this for a while now – gone through the comments and tried the suggested code mods, but this just isn’t working! Sorry in advance for the repeat question…

I want my mobile site to display a different homepage to my desktop theme.

Desktop Theme uses a page called “home” (not latest posts), and I want the mobile theme to use a page called “mobilehome” (not latest posts).

So this is what I’ve tried:

1. I changed the Reading settings to “Latest Posts”

2. In mobile theme functions.php I added: update_option( ‘show_on_front’, ‘posts ’ );

3. In my desktop theme functions.php file I added $home = get_page_by_title( ‘home’ ); update_option( ‘page_on_front’, $home->ID ); update_option( ‘show_on_front’, ‘page’ );

After this, all I’ve succeeded in doing is changing the desktop theme to show my latest posts (as indicated by the wordpress Reading settings)...but nothing else has changed.

Also – I don’t know how this code will actually help me set my mobile theme to the “mobilehome” page…

Help! Many, many thanks!

Hi Brandara,

Did you solve this problem?

Hey Rd. Ok at least I get it now (I think)! ...so it’s not as simple as throwing in a bit of code to say “use this page as the homepage for my desktop” and “use this other page as the homepage for my mobile theme”... this setup says “hey mobile user! go and have a read of index.php file as the homepage!”.

Is that right?

So when you say edit the index.php file (I’m assuming the root index.php file), I have to enter straight up html in that file?

realdesigns

That’s correct you cannot assign a different homepage for your mobile website. If you want to change the layout customise index.php. Now if you cannot get the code to work e.g.

 $home = get_page_by_title( ‘home’ ); update_option( ‘page_on_front’, $home->ID ); update_option( ‘show_on_front’, ‘page’ );

You may be including it within a function. Can you send me your functions.php for mobile and desktop and I will take a look.

Thanks!!

Rd

I have the same issue as @BRANDARA

I have tried different ways to get the homepage to show different for mobile but no luck.

My desktop theme uses a page called “Home”, but not sure how to edit this page so it will show correctly for the mobile page.

realdesigns

Hi thanks for purchasing. Please click on the support tab then scroll to the post which helps with this issue. You do not need to create a separate mobile page. Hope this helps.

realdesigns

Hi, did you follow the same instructions that I sent brandara? Unless WordPress has updated its core this should work.

Rd

Default-user

I have tired all that I can think of to change the mobile index.php, but nothing I do seems to work. Even when I delete all the content form the index.php file the page still stays the same.

Is there another file I need to edit to make my changes take effect?

Hi, Rd On the archives page, selecting a month or subject shows all articles/posts for that month/subject fully open. I want to show only titles or titles and excerpt. How do I go about achieving that?

Hi,

Please search the WordPress codex to find your answer. You will be able to find it there. if you get stuck let me know.

I got stuck, didn’t find a solution. If you could show me a code to add on the theme templates that’d be helpful. Thanx.

Hi Rd On the pagination issue, the plugin author suggested this change on the pagination code on your theme (Try removing the CSS class of “shadow” so that it reads: ul class=”pagination” clear=” />). The changes were made on the single.php, page.php & post-template.php and they managed to bring back the pagination, but now the “previous” is shown as text only while “next” is shown as a button (http://startupbotswana.com/blog/page/2/). Assist on solving the issue, either restoring “previous” to be a button or making both text.

Default-user

Rd, I already made those changes and have resulted into these http://startupbotswana.com/blog/page/2/ (see the pagination). That’s what I need help with.

Hi. Just purchased the WOW templates. They are very easy to use and I am almost done completing my mobile site. I am having problems finding the user guide to tell me what to do once I have the templates ready. Can you tell me where to find information on how to get my mobile site up and running?

Hi mate, How to change news post category with my own category?

you can visit my web at www.phitagoras.co.id

Thanks

Hi,

Open index-news.php and look for:

// Get posts where category name of posts is news
$query_posts = null;
$query_posts = new WP_Query('category_name=news&posts_per_page='.$post_num.''); 

Change category_name=news to a category name of your choice.

Hi RD,

I followed the “4.4 Adding the mobile detection script” instructions and my mobile devices are not being directed to “http://www.buildmychurchsite.com/mobile/”

Please assist me so that the mobile re-direct script will work.

Thank you, Mark :stress:

realdesigns

Hi mark,

please describe your setup? One theme or are you switching between your desktop and mobile theme. Where have you added the code?

Rd

mcugal Purchased

Hi RD,

Thank you for your quick response. I’m designing my desktop site using a software called Artisteer (www.artisteer.com). The desktop site can be found at http://www.buildmychurchsite.com.

I loaded your WOW! mySite WordPress Mobile Theme on another WordPress install at http://www.buildmychurchsite.com/mobile/

Then I followed your documentation “4.4 Adding the mobile detection script.” I used the 4.4 instructions (see below) because I have two WordPress installs.

4.4 Adding the mobile detection script

The following script should be added to header.php of your desktop theme if you are using two separate installations of WordPress. [I DID THIS]

<?php
// Include script
include('Mobile_Detect.php');
// Create detection object
$detect = new Mobile_Detect();
// Redirect if mobile detected
if ($detect->isMobile() && !$detect->isIpad() && !$_SESSION['mobileoptout'])
{
header('Location: http://www.your-domain-name.com/mobile/');
$_SESSION['mobileoptout'] = true;
}
?>

Now insert the following script into your functions.php file within the opening <?php and closing ?> tags. This file is found within your theme folder. Be very careful here as your site might break if you make a mistake. Upload it to your themes folder and override the old file. This file is needed to allow session variables in WordPress which are turned off by default. [I DID THIS]

/**
* init_sessions()
*
* @uses session_id()
* @uses session_start()
*/
function init_sessions() {
if (!session_id()) {
session_start();
}
}
add_action('init', 'init_sessions');

The above scripts use the file Mobile_Detect.php which is found in the folder Mobile-Detection-Script at the root of your wowmysite theme files. Make sure the file Mobile_Detect.php is copied to the root of your server and not your mobile theme! [I DID THIS]

I followed each of the 3 steps to the “T” and I haven’t had any success. Please let me know if I missed anything. Thank you again for supporting this issue.

Kind regards, Mark

We’ll find a solution!

Hi Rd,

My initial testing is very successful! The plugin works as advertised. My guess is the Artisteer generated theme is causing the mobile detection issues. In the next day or so, I will test your theme with a non-Artisteer theme and see if it works with your provided documentation. I will report back to you my findings to assist you with feedback. RD….You provide wonderful support and I commend you for being very patient with me :)

Thank you! Mark

also, how do i get the call button on the bottom to appear on my mobile homepage. and what is the best way to select a mobile homepage. when i go to settings / reading and select home page from there it will change my desktop homepage

realdesigns

Hi there,

If you have a desktop website and use WOW! for mobile you can only set a different homepage for your desktop website. WOW! uses the file index.php for its homepage. If you want to change its layout you will need to change this page. You can’t assign two homepages ie one for mobile and one for desktop – the option doesn’t exist in WordPress.

This post will help you:

I have a different page that I use for my desktop homepage other than ‘Latest Posts’. What can I do to make it work with my mobile theme?

So your desktop theme uses a homepage which is not your Latest Posts?

You will need to add some code to make this work. Add the following to both your desktop functions.php and your mobile functions.php.

1. In the mobile theme functions.php file you will need to add update_option( ‘show_on_front’, ‘posts ’ );

This will set index.php as your mobile theme’s homepage.

Now to change the homepage of your desktop theme to what you want.

2. In your desktop theme functions.php file you will have to add $about = get_page_by_title( ‘about’ ); update_option( ‘page_on_front’, $about->ID ); update_option( ‘show_on_front’, ‘page’ );

‘about’ will be the page name that you are using as the homepage for your desktop theme.

I hope this helps.

Hi there,

Is there a way to have an admin email in the general settings, and a different email address on the contact page?

We would like admin/wordpress emails going to the IT dept and any leads generated from the contact form to sales – rather than all emails from the contact form sent to the email address from the general settings.

Thanks, Nicola

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply.

  • The Contact Form Fix has worked – thank you!
  • We couldn’t get the Homepage “Find out more” Fix to work. We tried adapting your code – you are right that we are using a static page (Home) as our homepage, but our mobile site is standalone (the desktop site is a completely separate WordPress installation). Could you suggest code for this type of site? If it would help, please see mobile.policy-store.co.uk where we are doing the development.
  • Another unrelated problem: how can we change the Copyright at the bottom? It needs to be different from the site name.

Regards

realdesigns

No problem.

If you have a separate Wordpress installation for your mobile theme I would suggest using the one click installation. This will set up your pages and posts and you can use this as a basis to build your mobile website. You’ll be able to see how things are setup too.

Please open footer.php to change the copyright notice.

Thanks,

Rd

Make a backup first before making any significant changes to your website!

Am I able to add this to an existing wordpress business directory to make it mobile optimized?

realdesigns

Have you got a WordPress directory website for desktop already? You want WOW! to display the same listings too, right?

Rd

Default-user

Hi, Yes I’m looking at various Wordpress directories to make a mobile directory but none of them offer a very attractive mobile or responsive version. I was thinking about using WOW to give the directory a nice look and feel for users. Any suggestions?

realdesigns

Hi, wow! will enable you to display posts and pages from your desktop website very easily but if you need to display specific directory content which is generated using custom queries from your desktop theme you will need to spend some time adapting the code from your desktop theme to wow! You would need a developer to do this which would take a little time and not work straight out of the box.

Hope this helps.

Many thanks for purchasing WOW!

You will need to add some code to make this work. Add the following to both your desktop functions.php and your mobile functions.php.

1. In the mobile theme functions.php file you will need to add update_option( ‘show_on_front’, ‘posts ’ );

Now to change the homepage of your desktop theme to what you want.

2. In your desktop theme functions.php file you will have to add $about = get_page_by_title( ‘about’ ); update_option( ‘page_on_front’, $about->ID ); update_option( ‘show_on_front’, ‘page’ );

‘about’ will be the page name that you are using as the homepage for your desktop theme.

That’s it! Give it a go.

hi, I made a number of tests and research, the only code that works is this

add_action( ‘after_setup_theme’, ‘change_theme_frontpage’ ); function change_theme_frontpage() { $frontpage = get_page(2); // 2 is the id of the page you want to show update_option(‘show_on_front’, ‘page’); // show on front a static page update_option(‘page_on_front’, $frontpage->ID); }

http://wordpress.org/support/topic/setting-different-static-home-pages-for-different-themes

replacing the number 2 with the id of the page or with ‘posts’, which shows the last post. Hello and Thanks anyway for the help!!

realdesigns

Hi,

Thanks for this.

You can assign a different homepage for your desktop website but not for your mobile website. If you would lie to have a different homepage for mobile please modify index.php from within your WOW! theme folder. Does this make sense?!

Is there a way to have the button shortcode open the link in a new window?
