Hello! I installed the BirdHouse theme but I have some problems. First I can’t understand how to put the social networks’ buttons (facebook, instagram and others) at the top of the web site (at the right side of the black menu line). Should I install some extra plugin? Which one? Second how can I make the same photo slider as you have in the top of the demo theme page (you have some guy photo on the background of it, video play button and some titles on it)? Third how can I switch on the same post’s preview as you have on the demo?

Hi,

The theme comes with one click installation to get website like on Live Preview. Please watch the video manual – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuYhYX-zpQc And I highly recommend this way to set website like on Live Preview.

In case you choose the set website manually so you need to follow steps in the documentation which comes with theme package.

1 – Enable social icons and drop links from within Theme Panel > Layout > Header – http://dl2.joxi.net/drive/2016/09/28/0017/0640/1172096/96/cd012e6328.jpg

2 – To get the Slider like on Live Preview you need to enable Sticky posts from within Theme Panel > Blogroll – http://dl1.joxi.net/drive/2016/09/28/0017/0640/1172096/96/1ce8d3350e.jpg And then mark some posts as Sticky – http://strictthemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/doc_featured_posts.png

And the button on the Slider depends on post format of you sticky post – http://dl1.joxi.net/drive/2016/09/28/0017/0640/1172096/96/7b44c245ea.jpg

3 – You should choose the Gallery Post format

Hello good afternoon! Your Theme is very beautiful, but I’m having one problem in translation of the dateformat… Please, how can I translate this dateformat in your theme?

Example: now it is “months ago”, i need in portuguese (“meses atrás”), but all the site is already in my language, I do not know where it changes more, the code is pulling information “get_Option (‘date_format’)”.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards, Felipe

Hello Felipe,

Thank you very much for your feedback.

It’s about ..WordPress/shockmag/assets/lang/ directory.

Another translation files come from ST Kit plugin ../wp-content/plugins/stkit/assets/lang/ directory.

As you can see, there are pre-made files for some of languages there. You have to take default.po and create a copy on the same directory. Call the file in accordance with code name of your language. Then translate the file to your language using PoEdit free software.

Regards, Nat

Hello Nat! Thank you so much! worked perfectly, thanks.

Great. You are welcome.

Hey,

i have a problem with BirdHouse.

I create a new Sidebar. This sidebar is linked with a special category. So it should be visible only within this category.

So i create the category and pick the new sidebar.

But in frontend i get the standard sidebar.

My Site: www.unser-kleines-ich.de/ with standard Sidebar New Category: http://www.unser-kleines-ich.de/category/working-mom/ -> here i pick on backend sidebar ,,working mom”.

I hope you can help me. Thanks in advance.

Hey, i have another question … can the slider only show up to 5 blogposts ?!

And another question :) Is it possible that your theme is not compatible with the Plugins Visual Composer and Ultimate Addons for Visual Composer? I try to integrate an accordion module – yesterday it works – today i get an display error.

Hi,

1 – I’ve checked the custom sidebar for the category and it works. Probably it’s about third-party plugin you’ve installed. If you need more assistance let me know an access details (to your WP admin) through the contact form – http://themeforest.net/user/strictthemes I will take a look – I will take a look.

2 – Yes, the concept of layout assumes a limit of posts. You can set a custom number at #105 line in ../birdhouse/includes/posts/sticky.php file – http://c2n.me/3CQ7VKr.png

3 – There are no special restrictions for using third-party scripts such as some kind of visual composers. The theme based on standard WP functions and loops. So I don’t think that might be reason for that. At the same time we provide a warranty of compatibility with third-party plugins listed on theme description page only.

Hi! after i found the theme, bought it, installed on my site the Newsletter plugin don’t won’t to get installed it gives this kind of error: “Something went wrong with the plugin API.”

Hi,

Thank you for purchasing.

I’ve checked the plugin repository on WordPress.org and found that’s for a some reasons the plugin is hidden. So you can try to install it manually: download ZIP and upload it from within WP Admin > Plugins page – https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/eevsd3tmy1vfeno/newsletter.zip

Hey, since yesterday i have some strange things on my website – i gave u access to my site and now:

My default sidebar is not like before and the instagram feed is different and looks strange :(

and wordpress said that still the child theme is installed not the main theme :(

Hi,

As I wrote you before to define a problem all third-party scripts must be deactivated.

Nothing strange happened it’s just about settings in those plugins. For example disable Instagram description uncheck Instagram Feed > Customize > Header – http://dl2.joxi.net/drive/2016/10/03/0017/0640/1172096/96/0e8fe16a5d.jpg

I took a look a source files and found the parent theme is activated on the website.

Hi, I’m having a problem with child theme. The theme child that came with the package, is not working. Once I noticed that the subject child did not show any of the options original custom theme, and I lost all the original theme features. This is normal behavior? I need to customize the theme and I do not want to lose my issues when I need to update.

Hi,

Please post your support request from TF account you’ve bought the theme.

Thank you, Nat

How does one change the categories under the big homepage slider? Currently there’s 4 categories but I can’t seem to find how to switch them out.

Hi,

Enter a slugs of preferable categories from within Theme Panel > Blogroll > Featured categories – http://dl2.joxi.net/drive/2016/10/12/0017/0640/1172096/96/eaa850b95f.jpg

Hi There, I am just working on a site using the Birdhouse theme and I have run into a few issues and I wonder if you can please help with these? First off, here is a link to the site hidden on the development server:

http://007.855.myftpupload.com/

- How do I remove the lorem ipsum (“Mauris fringilla, arcu ut tempus ullamcorper, metus…”) from first post that appears on the homepage below the slideshow, it doesn’t appear in the actual post’s content and I assume it was part of the dummy content that was added in the initial setup. I even searched in WordPress and it points to that specific post but I do not see that text anywhere when I access to edit the post. Please help!

- Although I have 6 “sticky” posts only 5 are appearing on the homepage slideshow at the top. Is there a step I am missing here?

- In pagebuilder when adding or editing a callout the “select photo” button doesn’t work, and in some cases it doesn’t give you the opportunity to even add a url to the photo.

- I am actually unable to select photos/access the media at all aside from physically adding the url for each photo

- on the Gallery page, in page builder, when I click on the actual gallery and the Gallery Settings/edit window appears, when I click on either “Edit Gallery” or “Add Photos” nothing happens. I see “javascript:void(0);” appear in the lower left hand corner of the browser (Chrome) but no action takes place at all

Hi,

1 – It’s about excerpt metabox – http://dl2.joxi.net/drive/0012/0377/807289/151109/6279217313.jpg

Probably you need to enable excerpt metabox – http://dl1.joxi.net/drive/0012/0377/807289/151109/e5f98f665c.jpg

2 – Yes, the concept of layout assumes a limit of posts by 5. You can set a custom number at #105 line in ../birdhouse/includes/posts/sticky.php file – http://c2n.me/3CQ7VKr.png

3 – I’m not sure what kind of pagebuilder do you mean. If it’s about third-party plugin so there are no special restrictions for using third-party scripts. The theme based on standard WP functions and loops. So I don’t think that might be reason for that. At the same time we provide a warranty of compatibility with third-party plugins listed on theme description page only.

Hi, I can´t find where to change the heading “YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE” that is on the bottom of the posts. Can you help me?

Hi, if you are referring to how to change the text you can check this answer https://themeforest.net/comments/14375589 . You can also change it directly (but I don’t recommend you to do that), the file that you should look at is single.php line 308. And if you prefer to remove that section just uncheck this option: http://take.ms/ZjlJG in Theme panel->Post

Regards, Luis.

does this use bootstrap?

Nope. All the code is tailor made for this theme :)

Regards, Luis.

Hi! I’ve replaced the logo in the general settings, however at the footer and the pop-up sidebar, the logo with “Katie’s Birdhouse” still shows. Any possible solutions please?

Hi, you can change them through widgets area: http://take.ms/BNXcM8

Regards, Luis.

It worked thank you! I was wondering, is there a way to change the color of the highlight?

Sorry but, can you provide me your purchase code please?

I am commenting for a client, he asked me why when he posts a video from youtube using the video format, it shows a link instead of a video.

is this normal?

I understand if you wish not to give any ideas what is wrong or give any support.

I am just a person who doing work on his site to try and fix some issues he has. Sad part was I am not the one who set up his site for him. So a little heads up, I am not even sure if it is with anything related to your theme.

Btw, nice theme. I may get it when I find use for it.

We can’t offer support, sorry. You have to write from client’s account.

thats ok thanks tho.

but we found it. jetpack. apparently jetpack causes issues

oh may want to add this somewhere for people who uses jetpack: shortcode embed needs to be turned off. that seemed to caused the issue for my client.

he said that he does not know his login info tho

Newletter plugin kills the site… errors out and nothing is visible except the error – FATAL ERROR. Updated the latest version of theme to v.1.0.2 – 26 Jan 2016, didn’t fix it! Please advise.

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare tgmpa() (previously declared in /homepages../wp-content/plugins/newsletter/includes/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php:2126) in /homepages/../wp-content/themes/birdhouse/framework/functions/classes/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 2118

Hi, can you please send the following details to me, support@strictthemes.com? URL, WP User and Password and FTP credentials.

I want to be sure that this is not a bug.

Hi! Your theme is perfect, thanks. Tell me please can I make the Default Sidebar (on the home page) sticky, and the Custom sidebar (in post) not sticky? I created New Sidebar for posts and it’s sticky too, like the Default Sidebar on the homepage.

Hi, I’m sorry to tell you that this is a on/off feature, you can’t do that without some coding.

Bonus: let the option set to sticky and change your sidebar.php file contents with this: https://codepad.co/snippet/6HjYhudc

Please if you think we are doing well rate us ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, it only takes a minute and it really help us out. Thanks for your support! :)

Regards, Luis.

Thanks a lot, Luis! Wish you good luck and lot of sales!

Hi,

I’m having some trouble with the “read count” on my posts, it shows 0 even after the page has had visitors? Like here: https://streamafilm.nu/nytt-netflix-utbud/

Do you know of a fix? Conflicting plugins?

Cheers Carl

Hi Carl, can you please check if you have this file: https://streamafilm.nu/wp-content/plugins/stkit/components/postviews/functions/postviews-ajax.php ??

I can see a 404 when requesting the file that manages the post views counting.

Another thing you can try, is to re-upload stkit plugin, that might fix the 404 problem.

Regards, Luis.

Hi!

I have installed your theme Birdhouse on a clean WP installation. But I got problem to get the child theme to work. It just says that the “mother theme” isn´t installed. But it is. Do you know it there is a problem with the newest version or something?

Hi, there are not problems as far as I know. Try to install them this way:

1) Start with a clean WP install

2) Put Birdhouse and Birdhouse-child folders (not the zip) in your Themes folder

3) Go to Appearance -> Themes https://cl.ly/3T3E2k3T2Q1x

4) Activate Birdhouse theme

5) Follow the steps in the docs

6) Once you confirm your front-end is showing correctly activate the child theme

If that doesn’t work reach me via direct message and we will take it from there.

Regards, Luis.

Hi,

It still doesn’t work. Can you send me an email and then we can talk more about it?

Sure send me an email to support@strictthemes.com (I don’t have your email address) and we take it from there.

Regards, Luis.
