how can i make a fixed slider dimention withou cropping the img?
is nextgen gallery plugin supported by Avada
A fixed slider dimension will not crop the image. Insert a fixed width and height, then make your image at that exact size.
Yes NextGen is supported. If you have any issues with it or further questions, signup and post on our fourm.

I read that 5 months ago there wasn’t a sticky menu option. Is there such an option now? And if there is, where can I find it?
Yep its been added a month or two ago
Its in header tab in theme options, you have to be using Avada 3.1 or higher.

I have added a portfolio page and added a post for that page, however the feature img i have set is tall therefore on the page it gets cropped on the portfolio page.
The portfolio listing pages (1-4 columns) will crop the preview image because they need to be consistent for column views. But if you use “GRID” layout then it will show the full ratios.
The rollover gradient color is changed in theme options on styling tab along with all other colors.

I will have different types of users using the site (Parents, Students, Staff). I think asking for user type before people even enter the site is cumbersome. So, I want the site to default to the Parents homepage. However, I want people to have a navigational tool at the top as a secondary navigation header to click on their User Tab and have the content frame change based on user. For example, if the user is on the Parents About Us page and clicks on Students, the content frame changes to Students About Us. Ideally, I would like the content change to happen without a URL repost.
Does Avada provide the framework for this?
Also, for the purpose of a site that doesn’t have blogs, and just static content, is there any advantage of Avada WP over Avada PSD?
Hey, replied via email
Oh, which email did you send it to? I didn’t get it.
We include tabs with Avada, they arte the ones you see on our site. If you want different styling, you can change the colors/borders via theme options, if you want something other than that you will need to know how to edit CSS
I don’t get messeges sent frm contact us frm… Do I av to download contact plugin 7?
No you dont need to download CF7 for that. Make sure you are using a valid email address inserted via theme options. And make sure to check your junk mail folder too.
I wanted to know how to get the Avatar of the author to appear on the blog posts, as seen on this page, http://themeforest.net/item/avada-responsive-multipurpose-theme/full_screen_preview/2833226
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
That is a gravatar that Wordpress uses. http://en.gravatar.com
I am interested in buying your subject, but in the demo, according to the different pages I visit I get a browser message that says;
message theme-fusion product
Select boxed lyout
What does this mean?
Are you referring to the style selector? That simply shows you can select different options.
What browser are you using? Can you show me a screenshot?
Here is our live demo link, try this. http://theme-fusion.com/avada/
I tried the demo with two browsers, Chrome and Safari … in chrome but the SELECTOR switch does not respond immediately and always gets the message window …
On safari but get the same notice to change the style selector Boxsed and never comes out.
As by this means I can send a screenshot?
There must be a browser extension or something that is messing with the style selector. Try to disable all your extensions, clear your cahce and close out browser then reopen it. Or try it in FF and see if that happens too. We’ve never had anyone report this and get about 1000+ visitors a day. Either way, the SS is just a way to see some of the options, its not included with the theme.
What is the best size for vertical images in a portfolio? The ones I have added are always to big.
Is there a size you recommend. Thank you!
Where are they too big at? The listing column page or the single post page? the column view will crop images, unless you are using GRID layout.
But the single post pages can be any size really. It depends on what you think is too big. Let me know.
Is there a better way to display vertical images the get sized correctly?
I created a account for the forum but forum said it was not allowing anymore question posts at this time.
Do any of the sliders display vertical images? If so which one displays best? Reason I ask is because I am a full time photographer and will be displaying a lot of vertical images on the site. Thank you for your help. Very happy with the site!
Yes you can use any of them to display vertical images. The flex, themefusion will adapt to the size image you use. The other 3 sliders, you can set the height and width for them so you can set it at whatever you’d like

I am a prospective customer. Could you please tell me if the page load times are significantly less when most code heavy or large file size elements are “turned off” for a “bare bones” mobile site.
Yes very much so, you can disable all the scripts like sliders in theme options. But even with that on, like our demo, its fast. http://theme-fusion.com/avada/
I just wanted once again express my thanks for great support that you offer! You go beyond many other developers with such attention to small details and patience:). The latest updates are awesome! Avada rocks! Thank you very much!
Thank you Ganga We appreciate the feedback! Good stuff is coming for Avada!
Hi, Beautiful Theme!
FYI, your theme color selector doesn’t work on the demo. Please fix so we can try it out.
Its working for us, see this http://d.pr/i/dEvl and here iit is boxed http://d.pr/i/ELcw
Keep in mind, some things like graphics in slider will not change as they ate not links or shortcodes. But users simply change the color of those to what they want when the build it. Also, the style selector is just a preview of what you can do,
What is not working for you?
getting close now Following a list of select plugins. Would be kinda kewl if you could add personal remarks or tell about alternative recommendations, which run better with your theme:
- All-In-One SEOPack
- Better WPSEcurity
- Sucuri Security
- W3 Total Cache
- Wordfence Security
- optional: All-In-One Event Calendar by Time.ly
We can tell you the ones we have tested in your list above; W3TC, All In One SEO and I’ve seen other users use Better WPSEcurity and All-In One Calendar.
Im not sure about others, we have not used them, there are so many plugins that its impossible to test them all. There should not be a problem with those, if you have one, post on our forum and we can take a look.
cool – sold see ya in support forum…
A much better solution than what you are asking for, built from the ground up specifically for Avada/ThemeFusion. And it will not be in the next update, but in the near future
Also, using shortcodes is easy, check out our docs it shows you any and every shortcode option available. http://theme-fusion.com/avada-shortcodes/

thanks for the great theme … I am now working on this, I have a few questions. how can I best update, I now have version 2.1 but see that there is already a version 3.1, I have downloaded this again. but when I upload it I get a message that the style sheet is missing.
I want to work in the dark theme, can I convert this or should I go to customize the background color.
I look forward to meeting your comment
Thanks for the comments! Check out our docs or forum FAQ for stuff like this…
To use dark theme, you need to be on v3.0 or higher. Update to v3.1.1 and you can use it.
The stylesheet is missing probably means you are uploading in the wrong spot. See our links above. If issue continues, signup and post on our forum and we can help
Ok, gonna try it out!
Very impressed by your Avada Wordpress Theme and am looking to purchase 2+ licenses for clients wordpress sites. However, like others posting comments here, my end users will be somewhat gobsmacked by having to navigate their way through so many short code tags when editing their pages so I’m waiting, and looking forward to, you release of a version of this theme that includes a Visual Page Editor!
Can you advise an approximate timescale for the release of a version of Avada theme incorporating a Visual Page Designer?
We have learned to not give ETA’s for features as big as a page builder because users get upset when it goes over the expected date, which is common with development. So much goes into one of those. I can tell you that our page builder is already in development and will be released as soon as its done.
Also, using shortcodes is not hard to do, we have newbie Wordpress users all the time tell us how easy Avada is to use and they build incredible layouts with them. We have full documentation for them so its easy to know what to select and use.
Also very important is that we are adding a shortcode UI builder, in v3.1.3
I am interested, but would it be possible to use this theme for a real estate-like website where products (businesses for sale) could be searched by criteria like price range, geo location? and if visitor wants to request more info is prompted with a registration page?.
Hey! It would be best if you use a plugin for criteria like that, real estate has its own niche and needs to use a plugin or real estate type theme with those features.
I just wanted to let you know that I’ve stated having lots of issues with the Archives/ Category pages after upgrading to the latest version 3.1.1.
Before that things worked normally with these pages now I am having sidebar getting thrown to the bottom of the page when showing a sidebar on Category pages, videos appearing in Excerpt although I’m using the Strip HTML option.
I really hope you would revise that and fix it.
Have you posted on our forum as we ask users to do? This issue is easily fixed.
See this, http://theme-fusion.com/forums/topic/avada-3-1-1-sidebar-breaking-with-excerpts/
And post on our forum if you have further questions
Thank you for the quick and helpful response.
I’ve applied that fix and things are back to normal now.
Greatly appreciate your support.
Fantastic, thank you! The fix will also be included in next versions coming in a 2-4 weeks.
