Hi there, this is a pre-purchase question… I have a client who wishes to have a rather word heavy navigation. I know for sure that its not going to all fit on one line like the majority of navigations do. Is there a way that this theme will accommodate for that either by placing the words on two lines (ie. forna / forna) or the navigation itself running onto two lines without messing up the navigation mechanism?

Thanks!

Hi.,

By default the theme does not have 2 lines navigation items.

You need to customize, So as to have the navigation in 2 lines.

Let us know, if you find any other difficulties!

Hi.,

It is better to update all the files of the theme. Follow the below steps to update the theme.

i) Download the theme from themeforest page.

ii) If you have made any custom changes in the code, please take a backup of it.

iii) Overwrite the updated theme files to the older theme files. Update the custom change that you had already.

iv) Go to wp-content/plugins/ through FTP

v) Remove the folder designthemes-core-features/ from wp-content/plugins/

vi) Then Login to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Install Plugins. Install the Designthemes Core Features plugin. That’s it. Now you are updated to the latest version.

Hi, that theme have child-theme support? I’m working with that template that my client bought and i need to create a child or it doesn’t support ?

Hi, it seems a nightmare. I install a clean setup of the wordpress in a subfolder because the first installation was made by my client and i’m not sure if he did well. But i’ve install the wordpress and the theme again in a subfolder and is not working well anyway.

First when i create a page, post,... your shortcode builder don’t appear, the envato plugin makes a conflict, the gallery shortcode don’t work…

I’ve sent to you the access user and password, it’s the same to the new installation.

Hi!.,

Gallery shortcode not working

HI, again.

I’m triying to fix all the problems but i have a lot. As a web developer I tried to control all the theme but it’s impossible, first of all the shortcode generator doesn’t appear.

Please how can i extend my menu, i want to add more menu, it only accept 7, how can i add more?

Hi!., You are talking about the issue of menu items coming down to the next line when you are adding more than 7 menu items? If yes, since you have used the menu items with “CAPITAL LETTERS”, it occupies more space in the menu container. Try removing the capital letters and use lowercase letters.

with capital letter its 6 but with small letter its 7, and i want like 8 or 9

Hi!., We tried with small letters and we can add 8 menus without menus going down. Please check the attached screenshot. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4bk7ohpopcuy8tf/top_menu.png

Try to have the menu word small.

Hi!., We received your details. Our support team is processing your request. We will update through the mail to you as soon as possible.

Hello, I just installed the theme on a fresh WP installation. For some reason it doesn’t appear on the root address of my site like “http://mysite.com” but only when I got to “http://mysite.com/home”

I checked the WP site address (under settings) and it is definitely mysite.com so why is the theme only appearing under /home? FYI, when I go to mysite.com, I just see a white screen.

Please mail us your site credentials (WP & FTP access logins) immediately via the right bottom form located @ http://themeforest.net/user/designthemes So that, we can check and have a clear look on our end. Then we’ll help you get rid of it ASAP !!

Hello,

Great theme! How do I disable the featured image from the post itself? I don’t want to disable the featured image thumbnail that would appear in a sidebar Latest Posts, for example, just within the actual post.

Here is an example of a post where I want the featured image removed – http://simministry.org/spring-2014/

But on the Homepage for example, I want the thumbnail to remain – http://simministry.org

Thanks in advance for your help!

-Jon

Hi!., Please replace the attached https://www.dropbox.com/s/gwhy9l5q6utyfe4/single.php file in the path wp-content/themes/alms/single.php. Now you can disable the feature image in the post details page from the Dashboard -> Posts -> Edit the post -> Post Options -> Disable Featured Image. Let us know, if you find any other difficulties!

Hello,

I am interested in buying this theme, but have one question for purchasing – forgive me, I am a relative beginner in the creating websites or using WordPress!

I am creating a site for someone who gives public inspirational speeches around the world, and thus we really liked the way the “sermons” section is organized and its possibilities. However, is there a way/option to not have it be “sermons” but something like “lectures”? Also, to change or get rid of the “Bible Text” field when adding new lectures?

Thank you! Shanti

Hi!.,

1) The sermons are separate module in the wordpress and comes as a plugin with this theme. But you can change the title in the front end from sermons to lectures.

2) If you leave the Bible Text field empty in the admin panel, it will not show in the front end.

Mail Chip Widget gives error when form is submitted :

Error: Could not connect (ERR 0: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known)

Hi!.,

Add this shortcode in Dashboard -> Alms -> General -> Top Right Content

Now[/dt_donate_button]

Hi,

Is there a shortcode that allows to display a playfunction for a sermon when you are on a sermon page (it has to look like the sermon display on the homepage sample). I just made it work on this page but it is giving me list of all the track

http://www.inlifespring.com/sermons/donnie-mcclurkin-responds-to-mail-from-south-africa/

Looking Forward

Hi!., [dt_sermon_list /] – This is the shortcode for sermon list. What issues you are facing send clearly with some screenshots. So that, we can check and have a clear look on your end. And we’ll help you to get rid of those issues then.

Hi,

http://www.inlifespring.com/

Sorry,.... Figured it out. :) Thanks

Hi! Hope you had a great weekend :) Glad that you have fixed the issue. Let us know if you have any issues.

Hi,

Could you give a shortcode that will enable only first three posts with videos to show on the front page where upcoming events is on the homepage.

http://www.inlifespring.com

Thanks

Hi! Go through the following instruction you get a clear view.

[dt_blog_posts posts_column=’one-third-column’ limit=’3’ excerpt_length=’20’] – This is the shortcode to display recent posts. If you want to display video posts , set first three posts as video post.

Let us know, if you find any other difficulties!

Hi,

I found a way around it. Thanks.

I am also trying to put a 60meg mp3 url in my sermon area so I can play it as a sermon but it is not picking up the url. Could you please advise. I do not wish to upload the audio files to my server, i’d rather upload it to soundcloud and play it as a sermon by just pasting the soundcloud url.

Please is this possible with the theme and how can I make it to do that.

Regards

Hi!., Currently the sermon manager not supports the soundcloud audio url.

Hi,

Hi, I purchased your theme and so far am happy with it. Two questions though:

1) On the home page, is there a shortcode so that instead of displaying all galleries, it will just display one category from the gallery? I tried adding a [category=’nameofcategory’] to the shortcode that is in the homepage ([dt_gallery_items limit=’8’ posts_design=’default’ filter=’false’ posts_column=’one-fourth-column’ /]), but it didn’t seem to limit it.

2) How can I get only my upcoming events to display on the homepage? Right now it is displaying all events, including past events. Is there something I can add to the shortcode (which right now reads [dt_events_list limit=’4’ excerpt_length=’16’ feature_image=’small-thumb’/])?

Thank you!

Great, and:

Hi!., Replace the attached file in the path wp-content/themes/alms/framework/theme_shortcodes.php, https://www.dropbox.com/s/821vaf4xvwzt9y2/theme_shortcodes.php?dl=0 So that, only the upcoming events will be shown.

Thank you for your great support! That worked perfectly.

None of the shortcodes seem to be working. I am trying to incorporate some of the accordion toggles, but all I get is the code. Even with the demo content installed. Any solutions?

Disregard, I figured it out.

Hi!., Glad that you figured it out.
