Please can you tell me what files in the theme <script type=’text/javascript’ src=’http://www.kernowccg.nhs.uk/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.8.3'></script> is registered in, as I would like to test a compatibility issue im having with a script i’m trying to load, I tried header.php as there are js scripts in there but this didn’t help me.

How does the theme allocate the version number of query please.

Thanks and sorry i know your pulling your hair out with me.


Thank you all sorted now, had to do a lot of digging in code but got there in the end – good learning curve :-)

Hi! We have now purchased your AquaWP theme for our website. You had said that you could put the “scroll to top” arrow button for all the pages on your list for development and we would love if you would do so. It would look nice if it was very similar to the arrow used for the slider on the homepage. Thank you!

Perfect! Thank you so much!

Sure, share the love and rate my theme if you like it! :)

Will do! Five stars coming your way. :)


This is my first time ever uploading a purchased theme to my Wordpress Website. Do you have any how-to-guides describing how a first-time user would go about doing this? I installed the aqua .zip file under “Install Themes” already, but my site looks nothing like the live-preview. Can you lend any helpful tips for a newbie like me? I would greatly appreciate it.


The documentation is in the package you downloaded, follow it and you will be good to go! You can also install the Demo data to have your sire look like the Demo :)

One last question for a while now please

The search results currently show the whole content of the page in the list, is this deliberate? Or can it be tailored just to show headline and excerpt?


Hiya no problem I will do from now on :-) I have read the above and assuming you are saying that adding excerpts to every post and page sorts the search results page from displaying full content, not in at the mo to check the theory… Cheers bud


I finally purchased your theme :). Great work.

However, I am getting an error when trying to import the xml file:

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in E:\HostingSpaces\bbhadmin\burrellcenter.com\wwwroot\bbh\wp-includes\class-http.php on line 1152

Any ideas?

Hey there! :) Just try again later, guess you got to it at a time when the server was loaded. :) Please use our support forum with more questions! :)

Is it possible to make top menu corners square instead of rounded?

Yes, edit your CSS in the stylesheet.css file and for #menu remove these lines:

-moz-border-radius: 4px;
-webkit-border-radius: 4px;
-khtml-border-radius: 4px;
border-radius: 4px;

Is it also possible to make the pictures in the slider square instead of rounded?

Ya, just round-corner your images in it ;)

is there a way one can change the services_item and porfolio_item as it seems somewhat generic and a little out of place.

/services/ and /portfolio/ would seem a better solution.

Sure, these name aliases are defined in your functions.php file and you can change them if you want. More here: http://support.blueowlcreative.com/discussion/comment/554#Comment_554


can I use shortcode like [portfolio cat=”a”] in page to show portfolio items?

Nope, filtering is only available for Posts_Carousel, you can use that instead!

Hi There I have just downloaded this theme and am now starting to add the content and ‘Customise’ it to fit my content. When I click ‘Customise’ via ‘WP dashboard>Themes>Customise’ I get a blank browser window with a side bar menu of the left for the Aqua them, but I click the the drop downs for ‘You are previewing Aqua’ , ‘Site title and tagline’, ‘Menu main styles’, ‘colours’, ‘background image’ or ‘Static front page’ nothing happens?

If I click ‘Theme options’ via WP Dashboard>Theme options then I do get the Theme Options within the WP Dashboard?

Surely the Customise option should allow me to preview and see changes and access the drop down menus to change colours etc

Im using Safari 6.0.2

Any thoughts welcomed. Kev

Of course you should be able to access the customize section. Does the same happen with your default theme? Also does that happen when you try on a localhost? Please try?

Hi There – Sorry for the delay. I have just activated the Twenty12 default theme and ‘Yes’ the same thing happens? Not sure what I need to do from here – Any help greatly appreciated. I really want to get going and start customising your theme :-/

Maybe something wrong with your installation?! It’s obviously not a theme issue … I would reinstall WP and try again :)

Hi :)

I don’t want to show the contributing picture on the single article.

Wich code do i have to delete in the single.php?

Greets and thanks for this great theme :)


Same problem now on the “blog page”.


There is the big picture above every article, but i don’t want this.

Where do I have to delete the DIV again?

Greets Tobi

Hi again Tobl,

Removing the featured image from your blog page would be pretty simple, you need to edit your index.php template and remove this code:

        <?php // IF Post type is Standard (false)     
            if(function_exists( 'get_post_format' ) && get_post_format( $post->ID ) != 'gallery' && get_post_format( $post->ID ) != 'video' && has_post_thumbnail()) { 
                    $thumbbig = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'portfolio-full' );
                    $attachment_image = wp_get_attachment_image_src(get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'portfolio-main');

                        <div class="pic">
                            <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php echo $post->post_title; ?>">
                                <img src="<?php echo $attachment_image[0]; ?>" /><div class="img_overlay" />
        <?php } // IF Post type is Standard :: END ?>

        <?php // IF Post type is Gallery
        if (( function_exists( 'get_post_format' ) && get_post_format( $post->ID ) == 'gallery' )) {
                    $args = array(
                            'numberposts' => -1, // Using -1 loads all posts
                            'orderby' => 'menu_order', // This ensures images are in the order set in the page media manager
                            'order'=> 'ASC',
                            'post_mime_type' => 'image', // Make sure it doesn't pull other resources, like videos
                            'post_parent' => $post->ID, // Important part - ensures the associated images are loaded
                            'post_status' => null,
                            'post_type' => 'attachment'

                    $images = get_children( $args );

                    if($images){ ?>

                    <div class="flexslider">
                        <ul class="slides">
                        <?php foreach($images as $image){ 
                        //        $attachment = wp_get_attachment_image_src($image->ID, 'portfolio-full');
                                $thumb = wp_get_attachment_image_src($image->ID,'portfolio-main');
                                <li class="pic">
                                        <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php echo $image->post_title; ?>">
                                            <img src="<?php echo $thumb[0] ?>" /><div class="img_overlay" />
                        <?php } ?>                        

                    <?php } // If Images :: END ?> 

        <?php } // IF Post type is Gallery :: END ?>

        <?php    // IF Post type is Video 
                if (( function_exists( 'get_post_format' ) && get_post_format( $post->ID ) == 'video')  ) {                    
                    if($video_embed_code = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'video_embed_code', true)) {
                        echo "<div class="video_max_scale">";
                        echo $video_embed_code;
                        echo "</div>";
                } // IF Post type is Video :: END 

yeah great, thx :) big up!

Hi, me again ;)

I have a maybe little problem with my sidebar.

On a blog page, it’s all ok. But when you look on my start-page, the first title of the sidebar is over the menu-bar.

Look on www.wein-guenstig-kaufen.de and there the title “Werbung”. How can i fix it?

Greets Tobi

Template – Page + Sidebar

TF’s code translator messes it up… <div class="h20"> </div>

looks perfect, thx :)


At the bottom of “Home Version 3” of the HTML Version you have a section “Our clients” where one can scroll through client logos. Is this feature also available in the Wordpress Version and if so, how do I activate it?

Many thanks



Nope, there isn’t; you could achieve something like that yourself with the use of jcorousel + some custom coding though if you feel comfortable doing it…

Please where i can find the short code for services carousel?

Thank you for answer, i have one more little problem, i use different language than english for my site and i have problems with headers font family, whatever i choose from typography, it seems, that the family doesnt support special characters for my language, what shlould i do?

Well… most Google fonts do not support special UTF chars, you need to find a font among those that supports your language or just use a systems font. :)

well i have found what google fonts supports my language and now it works fine, thank you :-)

I recently purchased this theme and have had a couple of problems, wondered if anyone else had experienced the same thing and possibly found a fix.

1. When i add additional pages none of the content appears, including any breadcrumbs or page heading, however it recognises that the page exists.

2. The carousel slider for the testimonials moves each testimonial block to far to the left so it causes problems, i tried playing with the width and had no success.

Thank you.

Hey, could you please post your question in our support forum + describe exactly what you are doing + what the problem is and attach your URL if possible. Thanks! :)

I have installed a Youtube gallery plugin and the theme is stripping the video out and resizing it. How to stop this?

You can but the videos will not resize in responsive mode … something I doubt you are willing to go for?

Greetings. I can’t get the featured image (or any image) to display at the top of my blog page. Please see it here http://www.claimleadership.com/blog-1/ I must missing something obvious. Thoughts or suggestions? -Thanks in advance! Calvin

Hi there,

Do you manage to successfully upload a Featured image to your posts in the admin and see it there? :)

When I add a picture into a table, the whole alignment goes whacko. The copy always goes below the lowest point of the picture.


Any ideas?

Hey, me again,

Put the vertical align for your body back to baseline, cuz that’s what messing up your menu. Leave only the one for the table! ;)

I think I got it now, but I dunno how to edit my post that had th code in it that messed up TF…I cant believe that could break their site???

Don’t worry about it, it was just a Div that wasn’t closed or smth, as long as your website is fine, we are all good! :)

I changed the menu style to a custom color in the customize theme section, but it only changes the main color, not the hover color. Where do you go in the css to change the hover color? I have tried a few things in the css, but it did not work for me. I am just not at the right place. Let me know how I should proceed.

Never mind I got it.

Hello, is it possible to put the menu on the right side of the logo?

Modding this from your WP editor might get messy… I would probably add a check in the page.php template for the home page, then if YES I would close the DIV with class “container” that has the fixed width and holds all elements, then add the slider, then open a DIV with class container to hold the rest after the slider! :)

If couldn’t I do it? how much and how long to you do it?

Drop me a line via my profile page so I can give you a quote… But try to do it yourself first. :)
