We purchased this theme to save a clients website that went down and had a old version of the theme. But even after uploading the new theme we can get into backend.
I assume this theme is not compatible with php 8?
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function create_function() in xxx/wp-content/themes/alamak/option-tree/includes/ot-functions-admin.php:69
#0 xxx/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(308): ot_register_theme_options_page(’’) #1 /usr/www/users/visiorbdeq/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(332): WP_Hook->apply_filters(NULL, Array)
There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.
Yes, you might want to lower the php version to version 7+, because right now, some plugin doesn’t support php 8+ very well, even the WordPress core still in beta support for php 8.0 https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/references/php-compatibility-and-wordpress-versions/
Our hosting company only allows php 8 and php 8.1 since Nov last year.
So unfortunately we cant set lower.
I’ve disabled all plugins – so plugins is not the issue.
Your theme is not php 8 compatible it seems?
Can you confirm, and let us know when it will be?
Yes the theme doesn’t support the php version 8++ right now because of the custom option tree plugin inside the theme.
if you still want to force to use the php version 8++, you might want to download the plugin in here https://wordpress.org/plugins/option-tree/ , extract it and replace the option-tree folder inside of this theme with these extracted plugin folde & file.
but please note, some of the function will not run properly in the php version 8++
Thank you – we can get into the website backend again!
You’re welcome. Glad to hear it
Hello, I’m having trouble activating the license, can you help me?
Im not sure why you need to activate the license for this theme? This theme doesn’t need to activate the license. You can re download the theme from your “Downloads tab” here.
I understand. Do you have any tutorials for installing page templates like the theme example?
You can download the full package that included the documentation. Its inside the documentation folder->index.htmlcheers
Is there a way to hide a specific portfolio item from the “recent works” on the front page ?
Im afraid not. Its gonna need custom works to be able to do that.
Hi! I have several questions about this template: – is it compatible with WPML or other plugins for adding multi languages? Can I use Alamak theme for multi languages website?
No, im afraid this theme doesn’t support any multi languages plugins.
Anyone got the portfolio section working with WPNL (translation plugin) ?
The link on the homepage don’t scroll anymore in Chrome and Safari. It works in Firefox. Any idea why ? (I’ve tried full URL, with ”/” in front of #, without success…) www.ubiquefilm.com . Thanks.
Try to update the theme to the newer version, or if you dont want lose any customization in your theme, you can download the update and try to replace this files jquery.nav.js inside your js folder(inside the alamak theme folder) in your site with the one from the new updated theme.cheers
Try to clear your browser cache first to see the change.
If you need more support, please consider buying the support extension.cheers
It seems that the single page navigation using #home or #profile no longer works. Is there a fix for this?
Its already been fixed. Try update your theme to the newest version.
Do I need to repurchase the theme to update it? I go to download the theme update and the version I get is from 2015. Thx
I believe you don’t need to repurchase the theme again to update it and you should still get the newest version of this theme. If you still can’t download the newer version of this theme, you might want to ask the envato support about this matter.
Great, thanks. I was able to update the theme and the problem is fixed. One last question. I know you have answered this in the past and I sifted though the responses but could not find the right answer. I have a video portfolio on my site with featured images, but when you click the image in the portfolio it opens up a bigger version of the picture. How can I make it so when you click the image it opens up the full post?
Im afraid its gonna need custom works to do that. And if you need support related question, please consider to buy the support extensions.
I have already made this edit to my old site, but now with the update it no longer works. I just pasted some code in before. You need me to re-buy this to add in the same fix?
Due so many problem rise because of this customization snippet, now we have to delete all of it to prevent that and wont provide it anymore.
And no, you dont need to buy support extension if you don’t need more support. You only need buy the support extension if you need more support, but remember, support doesnt included customization.
I’m trying to experience this theme through Chrome in Video Background mode, and it doesn’t seem to be loading the video at all. Neither in Home Video or Home YouTube. Perhaps my browser settings need tweaking? I’m a little confused because the theme seems to operate properly in Microsoft Edge.
One other question, do we have the ability to overlay a pattern for a dot matrix or scanline effect on those header videos? I hope I’m describing that correctly.
I look forward to your response!
1. For video background, there is new policy for autoplay video, thats why it not working fine in chrome. But there will be update to fix this soon.
For youtube video, it was working fine here. What version did you use to preview? Can you try to delete all the browser cache first when viewing it?
2. There is no options for that, but you can use custom css to do that.< br>
Hi! Since a recent Chrome update there seems to be an issue with the Video Background. The video does not auto play and it stays frozen on the first frame. I think the issue is somewhere within the BigVideo code because I found a link that explains the same problem (https://github.com/dfcb/BigVideo.js/issues/186). This guy solved it by adding a “mute” code, but I have no idea how on which file or which line should I add that on the Alamak theme. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for letting me know. There will be an update soon to fix that. But meanwhile, you can use this file and replace in the old one in js folder http://theme.ridianur.com/gedebvge/wp-content/themes/gedebvge/js/bigvideo.js
Perfect. Thank you!
Hi Ridianur, I am very interested in buying this great template in it’s video Background version. I just wanted to ask, is it possible to ad a Gallery section, that is actually connected to my instagram and that shows my instagramfeed? Thanks for answering. Kindly Sandhya
Im afraid not, there is no options to do that. But you can insert the instagram feed in some section ( eg. about section ) by using the plugin that support shortcode. So you can display the instagram feed inside those section.
Thanks,Adi Ridianur ,great support service, fast and accurate .
thank you for your kind words
I’m very interested in buying your Alamak theme in its “Video Background” version, it’s amazing and we like it a lot, but before, the end customer of the web asks me about some things that I’m not clear about. Do you mind clarifying me?
First of all to know if in the slider, you can make the title “linkable” and add icons of your social networks, also linkable and if the whole video can be all a click zone.
If the background is compatible, apart from YouTube videos, such as videos hosted on the website itself or a common slider type image.
If the calendar can load a “Google Calendar”
If the icons of social networks, can be placed in the header.
And if the background videos can be autoplayed on IOS devices, because for example, on the iPhone these elements give problems.
Thank you very much for your time and I hope that soon, once the doubts have dissipated, we can formalize the purchase.
1. Yes you can make the title linkable, but its gonna need you to insert the html tag there. And no, you can no’t add social network icon there and you can not make the whole video clickable.
2. Yes, you can use video that hosted in your site, as long it was using h264 codec (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC) so it will be play in all browser. Or you can use slider image.
3. No, the calendar cant use google calendar. You might need some plugin to use google calendar like this https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-calendar-events/ but we havent tested it yet, so im not sure if it compatible or not.
4. No, you can not insert social networks on header without custom works.
Thanks for your fast reply.
One more last question
The height of slider with video background. Who determines it? The theme config or video size
We need a less height in this section, with a small slider in height.
The slider height is depend on the slider content(text). You can reduce it by using less text or reduce the padding for the slider content using custom css.cheers
Thanks for all.
Interested in buying this theme, but It’s full of errors when you click on Live preview
Thanks for letting me know. The error only comes when we upgrading the php version. Now its been fixed so you can the live preview again.cheers
Thanks, what version of PHP do I need
At least PHP version 5.2.4+ (only for running the wordpress itself).cheers
Hello! I remember you had posted some instructions on how to change the thumbnail image (from the portfolio) into ajax. I can’t seem to find it, could you help me out? I’m trying to update to Alamak’s latest version and will need to modify this again. Thank you!!
You can look at this link http://theme.ridianur.com/alamak/change-ajax.txt
But please note, i cant take any responsibilites if you get any error after making the changes.
Thank you so much! that fixed it. One more question. Is there a way to disable the filtered portfolio? Even though I removed all categories there still is one filtered option saying “ALL.”
Nevermind. I found the way to do that. Thank you so much for all your help and for an amazing template that continues to impress even over the years.
Cool! Im glad to hear that And thanks for your kind words
All my VIMEO videos that were used don’t work anymore in the portfolio section. Last time I’ve checked, like 2-3 months ago, everything was working fine… Any idea what is going on ? I use to be able to show the videos by using link like: https://player.vimeo.com/video/237669559 but it’s not working anymore . My site: www.ubiquefilm.com
Its working fine in here.Im not sure what your problems before. Maybe because there is some change in the video in vimeo maybe(like the original link)? Because i tried to use random embeded vimeo video and it still working fine.
hey! I’m having trouble with adding the contact info with google maps. Even if I use the example values it returns ‘Oops! Something went wrong.
You dont need to use the shortcode if you’re not using the map at another page beside the home page. But its look like you need a google map api for that. You can use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/api-key-for-google-maps/ and insert your google map api there.
You can check here if you want to know how to create the google map api here https://www.latecnosfera.com/2016/06/google-maps-api-error-missing-keymap-error-solved.html
hope this helpscheers
It took me 2 minutes to fix it after reading what u had to say, thank you so much!
Now I have different questions if thats okey
1. Is there a easy way to make webpage show a specific section when first opened instead of the ‘home’ section? So it will be already slid down to another section when first opened.
2. How do I delete a section that it is there by default? For example I dont want to use the section ‘our services’ but it is there as default. I dont have it under ‘Menus’ and I dont have anything under the services post either. I just couldnt get rid of it.
Thank you so much!
1. There is no options to do that. You might need some redirect plugin to do that. But im afraid i can help you further about this.
2. You can try to use the homepage custom layout to do that. See the doc for more detail & video.cheers
sorry for replying this late.
Well as I realized I can not delete any sections through ‘homepage custom layout’ since I use youtube video homepage. How else can I get rid of those sections that I dont want to use?
I’m looking for a theme with a good one page portfolio.
Can I use it for case studies? I mean I need to add a lot of descriptions, images AND video to each.
Is it possible?
Im not sure what you mean by that. But you can see the demo site for reference. For the video, you can see the example in 2nd portfolio(Can’t Be Saved), for the slider images you can see the 5th portfolio (No One Knows). And you can add the detail too, try to click the icon or the view detail button at the left bottom featured images for each portfolio.
Also where is the option to add sound to the video (MP4)? I don’t see it in the theme options
No, there is no options for sound in video background
The Background Video homepage does not show the video on Safari or FireFox (MAC)... But I see it in Chrome. This is both on my site & your demo.
Try to install flash player plugin first because the video background still need flash player for that. But there is some known error in safari and for now there is no solution to fix that except change it into youtube background.cheers
is it possible to add an external link to the portfolio filter menu ?
I used the following term to add an item that shall link to an external page:
< li >< a class=”white-btn” href=”http://EXTERNAL PAGE” target=”_blank” >Zum Kuschelland< /a >< /li >
The link is shown but doesn’ t work. Is there a workaround for this?
No, im afraid its not possible without customization for this.
You might want to hire some freelancer in studio envato to do this customizaiton.cheers
Another issue: I want the portfolio section on an extra page and not on homepage layout. I chosed the homepage custom layout. That works. But due to permalink on Portfolio items the list is shown but doesn’ t open the whole portfolio text. Also the slider on top of page is empty.
If I use the Homepage Slider Layout the slider is shown, but also the portfolio section that I want to show on another page. Please help! I don’ t understand this issue…
Can you give me your site link so i can understand your problems there? And did the problems comes in the default/standard featured that the theme provide or you want to make customization? Please note that support doesnt included customization and please consider to buying extended support if you still need support related problems.
We will buy the extended Support tomorrow. The Link to our page is
You may visit the page tomorrow 8 am because I have swiched to our old page.
Tomorrow I will swich back again.
Thank you for help
Im not sure whats your problems here. Its look like the slider and the portfolio item is working fine. So i really dont understand what is your problems there.
