Hey WebLionMedia,

Close to launching our site, and I have a few issues with IE8 and a few browsers.

1. On IE8, The page seems to scroll up and down by simply moving the mouse up and down. When he would click on the vertical scrollbar then it would stop doing this. This does not occur in Mozilla.

2. MENU in IE8 Another issue we noticed was that when you scroll slowly down on any page, the menu moves up faster than the rest of the page, making it appear out of place at times.

3. MENU on Mac using Chrome, Firefox or Safari Something is definitely wrong. You and I fixed the ghost menu appearing ON TOP OF PAGES (without white bar behind) and changed the header file from scrolling to fixed if I remember). Any fix to this issue?

www.smci.co is the domain.

Grateful for your time!

Hi, will respond to your message in a few hours. Thank you for your patience.

Thanks! Appreciate your help. Probably something related to work we did on the header-v1.php file…. On your LIVE PREVIEW, the menu has a WHITE background and does stay at the top of the site without meshing with page content or the layout of the page. Hmmm….. I know when I DON’T have a featured image the page layout with menu is off…. Just decided to launch featured images on each page now to “battle” that issue. :) OVERALL, LOVE this theme. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!

Fixed the issues myself with another programmer, but there are numerous issues with a few files. LOVE the theme and intend to use again. Think you need to review a few areas to perfect the code.

how do i get the buttons to open in same window? instead of opening new window?

target=”” ?

NEW question. Using TABS,
and manual spaces disappear regardless of which shortcode I use. Any known solution for that? http://smci.co/about-us/why-smci/our-philosophy/

All these issues were fixed. Check and download new update in a few hours. The new version is on queue for verification.

Hi WebLion!

The same problem with category. Shows no entries. Page is blank. More details, url etc posted per mail yesterday to you.



Hi, i though that it comes under Wordpress theme updates. Isn’t it?

Renamed old theme folder and new installed the latest version. I hope that’s ok.

Yes, it is ok. This is one of the methods. Rename old theme folder and upload via FTP or install via WP admin dashboard new version.

Hello. I have found your email. Will reply to it in a few moments.

Dear Weblionmedia,

this is not only a really amazing development, but your support has been even more outstanding!!!

Thanks for all your help!! Best experience on themeforest I have had in years…..

Good luck

You are welcome! :)

Typography options do not seem to work. Body fonts and headings do not change regardless of what size the font is set at?


Make one change in the file ”/blackbird/functions/custom-css.php”, find this code:

    background-position:center center;
    -webkit-background-size: cover;
    -moz-background-size: cover;
    -o-background-size: cover;
    background-size: cover;        
<?php endif; ?>
<?php endif;?>
<?php endif; ?>

Replace it with this one:

    background-position:center center;
    -webkit-background-size: cover;
    -moz-background-size: cover;
    -o-background-size: cover;
    background-size: cover;        
<?php endif; ?>
<?php endif;?>
<?php endif; ?>

Best regards, Weblionmedia

Look forward to using this cool theme. Thanks!

I’ve used your theme to develop a fairly large website. I certainly have some budget that I can pay you for your time. There are some theme-rooted issues in Safari, IE8 and mobile devices that make it pretty hard for me to fix and keep fixing. I don’t want to fill up your comment box here, but would appreciate knowing your availability ASAP (Today Monday, 2/3/14 time is 1:39pm in Los Angeles). Can you respond within the next 12-15 hours? I have an email I can copy over from head of IT. We have 6 guys testing the site. I’m responsible for all development otherwise I wouldn’t bother you. I can pay you for some of your time.

Apologies. I have a pretty high level company with over 10 accounts (CEO, CIO, President, Director of Marketing, etc. all attesting to the same issue with screenshots). It’s pretty clear that this is an issue. I paid another programmer to help with the menu issue.

Found article that said “Using max-width on images can make them disappear in IE8” http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/201202/using_max-width_on_images_can_make_them_disappear_in_ie8/

Response from my programmer: “Max-width is there for the responsive stuff to work,. Literally ever image on that site has it:

img { height: auto; max-width: 100%; }

I changed how the logo appears, it no longer floats but is absolutely positioned. The article said that the float is the problem!


float:none !important; position:absolute !important; }

Re: menu “It’s especially weird that the menu moves around as its CSS doesn’t allow is everything is static and relatively positioned, there is no absolute in effect anymore.” “The fix was to stop the window from scrolling by the mouse move and that was fixed by an older version of the scrollbar script.”

Hi. I understood that you have resolved the issue. Still is not displayed the logo?

Hi, I just purchased the theme today, excellent so far and the ‘shortcodes’ option is great ! I’m currently working on an offline site but I would like to increase the height of the logo (using header style 1). I have specified the dimensions in the theme options and I’ve played with the css but I disappears behind the menu and when I scroll the content goes over the menu. Is there some documentation about this ? regards,

Lastly, I just realised the icons shortcodes. I really don’t want to use shortcodes for list items. I’ll be handing over the site to my client when it’s completed and I can’t tell everybody who’ll be making posts they need to use shortcodes. This is rather inconvenient even for me. I know it’s Sunday but for webmasters it’s a regular working day :-D

Hope I’ll get a response soon

I don’t know what is wrong but surely you have a good reason for not replying to your messages. It’s a bit unfair to be left hanging

Hi, I’m sorry I had a weekend. Will answer soon to your email.

What JavaScript libraries are included?

Please check the folder /js/plugins/ and you will find all JavaScript files used within the theme.

Im using header option 1 and the YouTube icon will not appear.

So whats the deal? I cant tell my my client they can have a YouTube icon link whenever you decide to get to it? Seems there are a ton of issues with this theme. It should never have been released. I had to re-code tons of stuff all ready just to get the glitches out. It appears everyone else here has had the same issues. Very disappointed we paid you good money for a theme we’ve had to re-code ourselves.

Please, write me using the contact form in my profile. There we could take a look to this closer, I will help you with this!

Thank you anyways, we fixed it ourselves.

Hi there … Loving the them! Just a quick question .. Can the portfolio be done like this http://anguillamusicawards.com/nominees/ ? I have tons of items that I have publish in my portfolio but I realize it only shows based on what my default number of posts for blogs are. If this can be done can you please advise ?

Hi, is it possible to specify the category with the latest post shortcode, or with the blog viewing style ? I have two categories of blog articles and I want one only.



The shortcode [latest_posts] have the parameter “category”.

An example: [latest_posts category=”5”]

Best regards, Weblionmedia


I sent you a private email a few days ago and I didn’t receive a response. I need help with block out the search bar and adding some bottom padding for the logo. Please advise.

Thank you R


Unfortunately, I can’t answer to your answers if you didn’t bought the theme directly from ThemeForest. I’m sorry, but I have bad practice with this type of collaborating and purchasing. Thank you for understanding.

Best regards, Weblionmedia

Hi Nice theme. Lovely.

Could you show me how to do these # 2 things 1. Add bottom padding for the logo (az coating) 2. Add an image below the social media icons… (header – left side) 3. Contact form style. I do not want emails do be displayed in the contact page section. But i noticed that without it the emails are not delivered. Is there a way around it.

Thanks. Padding for the logo worked. Thanks.

1. the email still appears in the contact page. I removed the code you sent me. http://floorcoatinginc.ca/contact/ (shouldn’t appear) 2. Contact Page Form – Website – I would like to change it to email(required) 3. Send Messages on the forms are all wanky.

I figured everything else out with exception of this. All the contact forms submission are not showing up in my inbox at all. Should I place back the content from contact-form.php. Please advise the site. is to go site. soon. thanks

Hello, I have checked the Inbox and found the email, but the log in details doesn’t work. Please recheck them, also check if the created user has rights for Appearance > Editor.
