Hello, I have a problem to upload the theme (failure message). In the manual, I get this page. Thank you for the help.

Designare

Ok danana thanks, we will see what’s happening ;)

We find the solution, let’s make the update :D

Problem solved in version 1.0.3. Please download the theme again.

Hi there,

Pre-purchase questions:

1.- Is it possible to embed youtube videos in the slider? 2.- Is it possible to change the blue lines/icons/graphics default everywhere in the theme to orange? 3.- My SEO team says that the pages within the theme have multiple H1 tags and they say pages should only have one h1 tag for them to be SEOfriendly (h2,h3,h4,etc, excluded). Please see an example in homepage or services page and look for h1’s in the code, theres many of them… 4.- Is it all 1 CSS in order to minimize http requests? 5.- Is it possible to integrate the “subcribe”call-to-action with Aweber instead of mailchimp?

This is pretty much all stopping me from buying it right now and recommending for clients :).

Thanks and regards,

Jorge Garcia

Hi Eloes,

Thanks for your interest on our work, first of all.

Now regarding your questions.

1) Yes, it’s possible.

2) Yes, you can change the global color style via admin panel or via custom pages options.

3) This is a question with no final consensus. You can use more than one h1 with no problem, since not abuse of them. In our service page we use a lot of h1 tags because we style it on the admin panel and we want use the same style on each (this is not good practice , we will fix it). Check this http://designarethemes.com/img/services-headings.jpg

4) No, but you can easily put all the css in one file. We can help you with this.

5) No, for now this section only works with mailchimp.

If you have any other question, don’t hesitate in contact us again ;)

Best Regards

Will it be possible to embed my own form instead of the pres-et email call-to-action so that I can connect it to my aweber?

Designare

Yop, it works! Regards

One more!

Is the content loading prior to sidebars? I’ve been getting those recommendations for SEO optimization in my websites?

Thanks

Jorge

Designare

Hi again Eloes,

For now we don’t establish any priority in the loading of the site.

Hi,

I bought the Theme and tried to set up Revolution Slider. When adding the Rev Slider on my HomePage (Yes, I chose Home Template) it´s not saving. It always says “no Slider”. When I go to the HomePage it says:

“Revolution Slider Error: If you want to use the PHP function “putRevSlider” in your code please make sure to check ” Include RevSlider libraries globally (all pages/posts) ” in the backend’s “General Settings” (top right panel).

Or add the current page to the “Pages to include RevSlider libraries” option box. “

Please help.

Thanks Pat

Designare

Hi Pat,

Many thanks for your purchase.

This is a common issue with rev slider. Please follow the indication.

“If you want to use the PHP function “putRevSlider” in your code please make sure to check ” Include RevSlider libraries globally (all pages/posts) ” in the backend’s “General Settings” (top right panel).”

Best Regards

When changing fonts in the Theme, nothing will change. It doesn´t matter in which part (Menu, Typo etc.) you change the font.

Regards, Pat

Designare

Hi again Pat,

The fonts are working well :) Please go to Style Options -> Fonts add the google font that you want, Hit “Save Changes”. Then choose it for menu, headings, links paragraphs, etc..

If you need more help from us to setup the theme, please post your questions on our Support Forum and our support team will be happy to help you ;)

Cheers!

Can you use woocommerce with this theme?

Designare

Hi crossroads60,

We are working on it right now, zap will be 100% compatible with woocommerce on the next update.

Cheers!

Every page is showing this fatal error, both the pages imported from your XML and also when you click Add New Page.

Hi wisemonkey26,

This is a small notice that has escaped to us, but this is not important for the normal functioning of the theme. Please desactivate the wp_debug and this notice will not appear.

We will take a look into this and remove it.

Best Regards

hi, i’m going to upload the theme to wp now and it is a really big file, should i just take the whole folder and uploaf to themes in my ftp client?

thanks for a nice theme

Default-user

fixed the upload already, please see my other question

I’m actually finding it so hard to work with this theme because of all the options and i really feel i can’t get anything out of this. Of course this is due to my lack of knowledge of making websites but i’ve done another one which was much easier for me. Is there any possibility for me to have a refund or at least change this theme to another one of your themes but that is easier for me to work with? I feel a little miserable for paying 45 dollars for something i can’t use?

Best regards

Designare

Yes, we think it’s the easiest way. Please send us a email to designarethemes@gmail.com with your site link and the login details. Regards ;)

hi, i haven’t seen any e-mail from you guys? just wanted to remind you because i’m not able to make use of the theme

Designare

Hi chrisakbas, you already sent us the email? We think that we answered all the emails by these days.

If you have sent the email, please re-send it, if you don’t mind.

Hi Designare,

I am experiencing an issue with the logo on the demo page and as a result the downloaded theme.

On my MacBook, running the latest version of Safari, when I scroll down the page and scroll back to the top the logo appears squashed? See this video here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5oDc5R4DdU

It also appears to happen on Chrome on my Mac, but on PC it works fine on Safari, chrome and IE.

Any thoughts?

Alistair

Designare

Hi Alistair,

Thanks for pointing that out, we will check it.

Any solution?

Designare

Hi rairdesign,

You can fix that issue, just by going to default.css (/wp-content/themes/zap/default.css) on the line 332 (find the values of css relative to “.logo a” and “.logo img”, if you’ve add some more css rules.)

Replace the following values with this new ones:

.logo a { position: relative; float: left; z-index: 999; -webkit-transition: linear .3s; -moz-transition: linear .3s; -ms-transition: linear .3s; -o-transition: linear .3s; transition: linear .3s; }

.logo img { min-height: 58px; position: relative; float: left; -webkit-transition: linear .3s; -moz-transition: linear .3s; -ms-transition: linear .3s; -o-transition: linear .3s; transition: linear .3s; }

If you have any more problems with it, just send us your feedback.

Regards

I was all set to purchase until I saw that the demo home page takes 24 seconds to fully load with 153 requests.

Is there any plan to optimize this theme in the future?

Designare

Hi pfaulty,

Thanks for your interest on our work.

At the moment, our team are working on a big update to add to the theme, some requested features from our buyers. After this update we will take the time needed to optimize the theme.

Best Regards

Hi, great theme, i like it. I have a question: there is an option to avoid the date/post type box on blog details in mobile layout? it can be more readable the content if it use a whole screen width.

Designare

Hi giflosa,

Thanks for your comment.

We are sorry but for now we don’t have that option in the theme, but if you buy the theme, our support team can help you with it ;)

this sounds silly but how do i add sidebars to pages? i cannot find the option anywhere in page options. thankyou

ok this is quite time consuming and difficult to work with. every other theme i have worked with offers much simpler ways to add sidebars. the template pages you offer are full of code that is not required for my needs. i really just want a snippet so i can add 1 block of text and a sidebar. could you please provide this without all the other styling codes you have in your right side bar template?

Designare

Hi ghog,

Sorry for the long time to answer your question but we had a issue with themeforest, and and we can not respond to comments.

Now regarding your question.

We think that in that way, the power of the sidebars is more strong and flexible, because you have the control for choose the size, orientation of your sidebar.

Here the snippet. Paste the code inside the tab HTML in the wordpress editor and edit it there or in visual mode.

Right Sidebar

<div class="main_cols container">
<div class="four columns" onclick="if(this.children[0].innerHTML == "Type your text here…") this.children[0].innerHTML = " "">
<div>[custom_sidebar id='yoursidebar']</div>
</div>
<div class="twelve columns" onclick="if(this.children[0].innerHTML == "Type your text here…") this.children[0].innerHTML = " "">
<div>Your text goes here.</div>
</div>
</div>
 

Left Sidebar

<div class="main_cols container">
<div class="twelve columns" onclick="if(this.children[0].innerHTML == "Type your text here…") this.children[0].innerHTML = " "">
<div>Your text goes here.</div>
</div>
<div class="four columns" onclick="if(this.children[0].innerHTML == "Type your text here…") this.children[0].innerHTML = " "">
<div>[custom_sidebar id='yoursidebar']</div>
</div>
</div>
 

Hope that’s help! ;)

Great theme and i am glad i bought it. However i am having same problem with logo that some people have pointed out here. The logo size seems to be out of control in various browsers. When scrolling logo gets squished / is distorted (mostly in Safari on Mac desktop) . Would be great to have full control over logo in the next update – being able to set it’s width and height in both fixed and not fixed header version. Or smth like that.

thanks!

Designare

Hi 2dgeek,

Many thanks for your purchase, we truly appreciate it!

We already fixed that issue, we will make the update soon. If you want we can fix that for you. To do that please post your question on our Support Forum and our support team will fix that for you quickly ;)

ok thank you i will. in the meantime can you post some simple code for creating a page with right sidebar? i simply want to have a block of text on the left and a 1/3 sidebar on the right and I need to finish for the client by the morning. thanks

Designare

Hi ghog, you can use our predefined layouts, http://designarethemes.com/docs/zap-doc/ on 6. Pre-Defined Layouts and search for Right Sidebar, copy and paste that code inside the wordpress editor, tab HTML. Nice and easy ;)
