Hi do you know why my social icons in my footer arent linking properly please? They have the websites domain before the url. You can see here www.weareatom.co.uk

Have you insert the full URL about your social profile?

Example: http://twitter.com/your_username

How odd, I put www. instead of just http:// and thats what was causing the issue. Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Is there a way to add the icon onto my contact page on the right column? http://weareatom.co.uk/contact-atom-studio-london/


How do I get a background image in a page title like the one on your page?

I can’t seem to get it to work.



Below the wordpress content editor/page builder you find a metabox for the title header.

Thank you.


How do I recreate a section similar to the one above the footer on your demo page? (‘Are you Ready?’)

I did the following, but there is a space below the image, and I’d like it to touch the bottom like in your demo.

This is what I did:

– Added a section – Inserted Special Heading – Inserted text box, put image in there

Look at bottom of the page. There is a space below the image but I need it to touch the bottom of the section. There are no dividers in the section so that’s not it: http://paccell.com/new/

Is there another way to insert an image so it touches the bottom of the section?

Thank you.

Only way is to ovveride this with a css

How come it works on yours and not out of the box in the theme? Did you override yours with css? If so, please can you let me know how?

Simple write your css into Chariot Theme Options Panel -> General Settings -> Custom CSS


I’m having trouble making images responsive.

This is my setup and what I tried:

I have a Section, and inside that, a Special Heading and Text Box (text box contains the image).

I added .img-full-responsive to Extra Section Class name when editing the Section.

I added img-full-responsive (no dot) to my image within the text box:

<img class="img-full-responsive aligncenter size-full wp-image-289" src="http://paccell.com/new/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/PC_module_map.png" alt="PC_module_map" width="1090" height="570" />

But when I save the change to the text box and Update the page, when I check again, the change to the code didn’t save, and it reverts back to:

<img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-289" src="http://paccell.com/new/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/PC_module_map.png" alt="PC_module_map" width="1090" height="570" />

Can you help?

write this into your css:

img {
    max-width: 100%;
    height: auto;
    vertical-align: middle;

Perfect, thank you so much!

what gallery slideshow plugin would you recommend?

the usual NextGenGallery is not compatible with the page builder of your theme

You can use Revolution Slider integrated with the theme.


The Testimonial Slider won’t show up.

I add a new section, add a Testimonial section, and in there, click on AZ Shortcodes, Testimonial Section, then add two testimonials and click the button ‘Add Shortcode’ and save, update the page, and nothing appears on my site.

Any idea what’s happening and how I can get it to appear?

See this video, first to click on AZ Shortcode Button, you need click to the content editor.

Hello Bluxart, on the Home-Basic , under “latest work” there are 3 columns for the works. Is it possible to make 2 or 4 columns? I have 4 categories to display, thats why. Regards, Felix

I am trying to use the ‘Visual Composer for WordPress plugin’ to add a lightbox image gallery to a portfolio project. The only way I can see of using a lightbox is with a single image, is this correct?

I have looked at the ‘Visual Composer for WordPress plugin’ page and it mentions an image galleries being included but I can’t find a simple way of incorporating them without creating a revolution slider for each project which isn’t an option really. A lightbox gallery would be my best option.

Please can you help? Many thanks!

Something like the example on your demo site here would be great! How are these different images linked within the lightbox? http://demo.alessioatzeni.com/chariot/portfolio/sketchbook-project/

Hello, your theme looks really nice! Before I purchase, I am wondering if it is possible to combine multiple filters in the portfolio masonry display?

For example, If I am displaying clothes, I could Have one filter that contains SIZES (S, M, L) and then another filter that contains COLORS (Black, Red, Blue), etc.

If I can add multiple filters, is there a limit to how many?

Thank you for your help!

No possible have a multi filter, only way for this is modded the portfolio file for have this features.

Hi! Great theme! One question, how can we turn off the icon rollovers? Our client thinks they indicate something is clickable. Can we remove a script or use some CSS to prevent this? Thanks!

With CSS, only way is to remove the hover effect.

Sorry, which CSS selector should I adjust? Thank you.

You can use the firebug or web inspector tool:

.box:hover .icon, 
.box:active .icon, 
.box:focus .icon {
    background: #e96045 none repeat scroll 0 0;

.box:hover .icon i, 
.box:active .icon i, 
.box:focus .icon i {
    color: #ffffff;

Hi Bluxart!

I’d like to know if it’s possible to make portfolio items in the grid not to react on mouseover? Right now when I roll over an image in Portfolio grid it zooms and shows a magnifying glass icon on blue/green background. Is it possible to turn background/magnifying glass off and just leave the zoom?

Hi, only way is to modded the style.css


I Love you’re theme, would like to ask a presale question. Is it possible to have multiple portfolio pages? With each page their own subnavigation? For example:

Main navigation Home – Portfolio 1 – Portfolio 2 – Contact Portfolio 1 subnavigation: Item 1 – Item 2 – Item 3 Portfolio 2 subnavigation: Item 4 – Item 5 – Item 6

Would a construction like this be possible with the theme? Thanks!

You can split the portfolio posts in a different pages based on category, but all single portfolio posts is connected. ( if you navigate into the single portfolio posts ).

There is a problem with the functions.php file where you have enqueued all the dependencies. This is breaking the admin dashboard.

If i remove this code

//Main Styles function az_main_styles() {

// Register wp_register_style(‘bootstrap’, get_template_directory_uri() . ’/_include/css/bootstrap.min.css’); wp_register_style(“main-styles”, get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ”/style.css”);

// Enqueue wp_enqueue_style(‘bootstrap’); wp_enqueue_style(‘main-styles’); }

add_action(‘wp_print_styles’, ‘az_main_styles’);

the dashboard becomes 100% ok. So the problem is with this files exactly.

If i remove this code

//Main Styles function az_main_styles() {

// Register wp_register_style(‘bootstrap’, get_template_directory_uri() . ’/_include/css/bootstrap.min.css’); wp_register_style(“main-styles”, get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ”/style.css”);

// Enqueue wp_enqueue_style(‘bootstrap’); wp_enqueue_style(‘main-styles’); }

add_action(‘wp_print_styles’, ‘az_main_styles’);

the dashboard becomes 100% ok. So the problem is with this files exactly.

It is very strange, because this is only method to include the styles into wordpress.

You have modded the functions.php also comment the line?

Otherwise try to re-download the theme and override the file. It is very strange.

Hello. Having issues with the theme, everytime i open the website it gives me a popup that says “insert your js” www.globaldrywall.ca

How do i get rid of this?

Hi, I have updated yesterday the Visual Composer Plugin.

You need rebuild the pages with new version of page builder. Otherwise if you want send me a ticket here with a temp access to your wordpress admin area.


I will submit a ticket. thanks

I replied, only way is to re-create the pages, because I re-written all shortcodes with a new syntax and in more cases some pages not save all variables.


Hi current & future Chariot customers!
Is out the new update with the following additions:

- Update: AZ Fonts
- Update: Bootstrap 3.3.4
- Update: TGM Plugin Activation Class
- Update: Visual Composer 4.7.4
- Update: Revolution Slider 5.0.9
- Update: Languages Files

This update modifies the code and the shortcodes page builder, unfortunately this will result in some adjustments to make in your pages and posts.

This due to the use of a new syntax for the theme is compatible with the current and future versions of Visual Composer plugin.

For old customers lends itself to be careful when you perform the update, this is because most likely all pages must be controlled and in many cases will have to be updated.

For new customers however the only problem is the dummy-file that is not compatible with the new version of the plugin. Then you should not install the dummy-file, up to when it is released the new version of the file.

Hi there! Is there an easier way than rebuilding all old pages from scratch when we update to the new VC?

As Envato told us – VC prior to 4.7.4 has multiple XSS security vulnerabilities – so we have to update.

Any help would be nice :)

Cheers J.

unfortunately no, chariot was based on an old version of visual composer.

I had to edit the output of each shortcode to make the theme compatible with the latest version available.

Now the shortcodes have some new attributes such as classes for responsive.

Unfortunately the only way is rebuild the pages one by one.


Juon Purchased

Well – that’s not good. Anyway, thx for the fast response!

Sorry, but this only solution, because the plugin author has changed the syntax for section, row and columns and in this case only solution is re-build the section and column and re-adapt to the new builder.


If you have update the theme without read the changelog first most probabily when the update is finished the theme return an error.

For resolve this issue follow this steps:

  • Go to FTP into this folder: wp-content/plugins/
  • Remove this folder: js_composer
  • Now access to your wordpress admin area
  • Re-install the plugin find the zip here: wp-content/themes/chariot/framework/plugin-activation/plugins/js_composer.zip

What a complete mess!!! I have updated theme and all plugins, now my site has to be mostly re-built. What’s going on!!!

Seriously Bluxart. Your updates have completely broken our business site!!! Rendering on every page is broken! Your excuse on visual composer just doesn’t cut it. It they changed things, then you need to update the theme to fix it!!! WHAT A COMPLETE AND ABSOLUTE MESS!!! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS THEME!!!

Telling theme purchasers that they need to rebuild every page on their sites after updating the theme and plugins is NOT PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT!

Hi, sorry for your trouble but the major update is out some month ago. If you had read the changelog before the update you would have saved this error.

However the problem was due to the change of version of Visual Composer, which changed the output of the shortcode.

The only possible way for me was to update the plugin and the shortcode for the safety of subjects.

Has anyone found a solution to the Visual Composer issue? I have 3 business websites using VC that I can’t edit or update at all.

You need update the theme, what version of Chariot you have?

It was 1.6.1 before I replaced the updated files in, but I did not replace the entire theme directory. I’ll try that next. Will the VC page layouts and custom shortcodes still work if I update the entire theme?

You need update also the plugins, you find the plugin in chariot/framework/plugins-activation/plugins

It is possible you need re-create some page because with this update some vc shortcode change the output.

Create a backup first.
