Hello, I’m very interested in this theme.
I have prospect client who have requested a testimonial slider, you have a slider post on the home page sample theme.
Can it be possible to do a testimonials slider like that?
The design of the slider is more intended to display images. I would think you can probably find something a little nicer for displaying testimonials specifically in the form of a plugin from wordpress.org or codecanyon.net.
The theme uses a layout builder to construct the content. So, what you see in the live demo is just an example of what you could potentially setup. You could just as easily put someone else’s slider plugin up there in the featured area on your homepage or wherever.
Do you have a feature to create a site map?
I want to give you guys 5 stars for a great theme I used Yoast SEO with your theme and got us number one in our category in google I truly believe your theme is very SEO friendly great work. I will purchase more of your themes with no hesitation GOOD JOB!
Thank you for the kinds words. I’m very glad to hear that.
The only actual sitemap in the theme directly are the Archives and Sitemap page templates.

Re: Akita Theme v 1.1.5
There is no background color on the slider on http://sigep2013homecoming.com/friday-night-banquet-2013/ It should be red as selected at Appearance > Theme Options > Primary Color > Red.
I have two other custom pages created with the Builder, “Ground Breaking” and “Windmill Inn Page” with the identical settings to the “Friday Night Banquet” which does not show red on the page.
The sliders associated with the pages are:
Tucson CC: http://sigep2013homecoming.com/friday-night-banquet-2013/
Ground Breaking: http://sigep2013homecoming.com/new-house-ground-breaking/
Windmill Inn: http://sigep2013homecoming.com/the-windmill-inn/
Obviously I’m doing something wrong. What do I need to change to get the background on the slider at http://sigep2013homecoming.com/friday-night-banquet-2013/ to be red?
You just need to place your slider in the featured area of your custom layout above the main content area. Here’s where you can get support for Akita, and we’d be glad to help you out with this further:
Got it. Thanks.
I am wondering it was possible to hide slider(s) on Smartphones? Not on tablets.

Tried to join the forum (I am a buyer), but it won’t let me post. Your instructions don’t match what I see here (My Account > Licenses???).
Just want to know how to NOT show the “ad above content” on certain pages.
I apologize for any confusion. Below are the steps to access the support forum.
1) First you need to obtain your purchase code from ThemeForest.net. Go to ThemeForest.net > My Account > Downloads, and download your license certificate, which will contain your purchase code.

worked, posted the thread. thanks.
I’ve purchased two copies of your Akita theme for two of my client’s and most recently for my company’s site. In all cases, I’ve been very satisfied with the results. Akita’s Live Demo and access to your clear and concise training videos prior to my initial purchase were impressive locked in my buying decision. It was clear they’d be a giant boost in easing the learning curve. I thought, hey me, this author seems to be thorough…I can’t go wrong. I have to take the credit for being right on that one. Thank you so very much for going the extra mile and a half and doing such a terrific job in packaging and supporting your products. Your efforts are very much appreciated.
I was really glad to read this entire comment without a “BUT” somewhere. Truly thank you for the kind words; not a lot of people go out of their way to post when they don’t have a problem.
It was something I wanted to express for a while. I LOVE the Layout Builder and was another thing that especially attracted me to your themes. I would like to show you my two most recent sites that I completed with Akita, in fact, my company’s site just went live a few minutes ago so I’m pretty darn excited. Is there a way that I can send you the two links? I think you’ll pleasantly surprised.
Thank you again. seriously.
Great to hear. Feel free to post them here, on Twitter, or through the private message system on my profile.
I am using the woocommerce plugin with your themeblvd commerce plugin.
Is it possible to grab from Product Categories (from woocommerce) in the layout builder via Post Grid or Post List?
When I make also a Post of this, I don’t see the “Cart” inside this post.
No unfortunately this is not possible. Please remember that support is done here: http://support.themeblvd.com—and not through ThemeForest comments.
O yes, forgotten.
Great looking theme. A couple of pre-buy questions:
1) At the top where the logo is am I able to use all of that space for a central custom banner/logo i.e can I put what I want there and easily change the width and height?
2) Can I use a portfoilio for videos on the home page? (with a slider at the top)
3) When you click on a video in the portfolio section could it go to a full width page with the video at the top and words under it (as opposed to opening in a lightbox).
Many thanks in advance for answering these.
1) Yes, there is a theme option that allows you to change the logo, and there’s no specific width/height. Whatever image you insert will get placed there.
Centering the logo would be a CSS customization you’d need to make, but there is a snippet for this in our support forum:
2) Sure, you can use the Layout Builder to put whatever you want on a page. You’d probably want to setup a custom layout and place a slider element followed by a post grid element. In your post grid, all of the featured images could link to lightbox videos, or even embed the videos directly in the post grid with this plugin.
3) Defintely. So, say you’ve got your post grid, as I described above. When editing each post you can set where you want its featured image to link to. You can select for it to link to a lightbox popup or the single post.
This video series will take you through post grids in the theme if you want to know how it all works before purchasing.
Note: The featured video plugin I linked to would be a yet another option from the things discussed in this video series.
Also can you tell me what is the difference between this theme and your other theme – The Arcadian
Essentially both themes come with all the same framework and basic features. The primary difference is the overall aesthetic design and the options that accompany that for each theme. You can see screenshots of the theme options for each theme on their respective Item Details page under where it says “Features Overview”.
In addition, Arcadian implores design for the various post formats and and has the “Portfolio Module” element you see on its homepage that can be used within the Layout Builder.
Is it possible to show the next item in a slider automatic, after a video has been played in the slider?
Apologies, but the theme has no feature for this. Remember to post in the support forum for any support requests: http://support.themeblvd.com
I need edit mobile style. I chose “List out slides for a more user-friendly mobile experience.” and there are big space between widget from navigation(menu.) I want to remove the space. Which file and how should I do it?
Mobile mode, how to align logo and navigation?
Currently logo is right and navi is centered.
I need it to be left aligned.

Love this them, but I have another client that already has a site and a theme he likes but loves your slider. What slider did you use, and where can I find it?
Thanks – he wants me to have the slideshow live before this weekend, hope you can help.
The theme uses FlexSlider jQuery plugin, which has been styled custom for the theme.
Any way to get the code required to put into my other theme?
Sorry if this question has been covered but I can’t seem to find anything on the topic through the Search…
I’m trying to add a simple top of the page banner ad by using the Text section (tested image link, so the image is in the correct spot being referenced) to the Ads Above Content widget area in the Akita theme. My assumption would be that this would place the linked banner image above the header, but nothing shows up.
I’d appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
Oh, please disregard the question above about the Ads Above Content widget not working; turns out it didn’t like the filename of the image file. The Ads Above Content wasn’t in the location I wanted though, so I used the Framework Hooks to place the banner ad above the header. For what it’s worth, it’d probably be helpful to add more of an explanation and examples to how to use the framework hooks to your already excellent documentation. I figured it out through trial and error and very much appreciated the examples you included in the child theme functions.php, so thank you for that!
