I love this theme. The boxed theme is a bit narrow though and seems outdated. I would love to see support for variable widths added at some point. A full-width option would be great as well.

Did you try the CSS?

I guess if the items are not evenly spaced out then I don’t understand what you want. The CSS provided uses new Flex box model which spaces them “evenly” but also considered the size of each so it should work correctly.

I’ve implemented it now if you want to take a look. As I resize the screen, it truncates text in the menu items.

Thanks again for the help. Sorry this turned out to be a bit of a hassle!

Unfortunately it’s impossible to prevent that. You would have to add custom CSS to your site to make the font-size smaller when there isn’t enough room.

But what I would recommend instead is to display the mobile menu instead of the main menu when there isn’t enough room for your menu links (I see you switched it to use a plugin, cool).

I just updated to Version 3.6.3, and it is severely broken. I’ve installed and uninstalled the theme multiple times. All my plugins and WordPress are up to date. It kills the site and the admin. www.projectvisionrutland.com

Hi,

It looks like your current site isn’t using the Earth theme. Do you get an error notice when you activate the theme? Or do you get a blank site? (if you get a blank site be sure to enable WP_Debug on the server to see if there is any error).

Also make sure you go to Appearance > Install Plugins and update the Visual Composer to ensure there isn’t any errors – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJJ0E8QU8M4

Hello, I use your theme now a few years.

Now after the latest update I have a problem. Here in Germany is the standard for a date not month/day/year, but day/month/year. Now it happens that the 3 October is the 10 March.

How can I fix that? In old versions all was fine.

Sorry for the delay! Are you talking about the blog? http://wpexplorer-demos.com/earth/news/

If so, simply go to Settings > General and change the data format – https://cl.ly/052v1u1x0V0j – this should update your blog posts data accordingly.

Hey, I think it helped in the event section and the calendar, thank you.

But in the guestbook, the format of the date is now month/day/year instead of day/month/year.

Are you using a plugin for the guestbook? This isn’t something included with the theme, can you share the URL so I can look?

Hum, I didn’t update the theme since 1 year (my bad) and I tried today but it seems you completly changed your code. Many classes don’t exist anymore, new classes appeared, same for html skeleton. I can’t upgrade without comparing each files. I can drop my old files in child theme but what’s the point to do an upgrade then ?

We had to change classes to give the theme a fluid design. The only classes changed though should have been the main grids. Because the theme was released before responsive/fluid design was a “thing” things had to change to serve the newer market. Unfortunately it was crucial. But for the most part things should be pretty much exactly the same…

Also the theme now includes the Visual Composer page builder, which you may want to check out. Because you can now build your custom pages via the live page builder rather then messing with template files so much ;)

Hi,

I don’t know why my events started doing this, but when I add the start and end date, and then save the event, the dates disappear. And then, when I look on the website, the start date is January 1, 1970. Any idea why it’s doing this? It was fine up until August.

Thanks.

If you want you can send the email right now. I will try and look at this tomorrow for you. I am releasing a big update to my Total theme sometime tonight or tomorrow – https://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019 – so it’s got me pretty busy but I added you to my todo list near the top ;)

Thank you for your patience, AJ

Hi I am having an issue with the calendar and wanted to check if it is just my site or a problem with the theme. Namely: recently I have been unable to add events in the future as if I create an event (on say 28/10/16), the event is made but shows up on the calendar during the current day and not the 28th.

An additional note: the events are being created with the date 01/01/1970. I should note that whilst my website has some changes made to the CSS, there are none made to any of the other files/assets. My website is www.berninaonmusgrave.com

Hi,

It looks like the theme is up to date and there aren’t any pending bugs so it’s very hard to troubleshoot from the front-end. I would need FTP and WP logins to check out what’s going on – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/support/

I do definitely see the issue though on the front-end but I need to check the data on the backend and also test via FTP to see what the database is returning for your dates.

By the way, have you tried creating new events? And if so, do you have the same issue when doing so or is it only on old events?

Hi! It’s too bad, the last update gets in conflict with javascript, which makes embed video no to show up anymore. Removing all plugins didn’t solved it. Changing theme the embed video worked, but that’s not a solution!

Could it be the jQuery version getting in conflict?

This other issue could be related: we can’t set the start and end date of an event anymore.

Other having those issues?

That is weird. You could maybe try going to your WP dashboard and under Updates click the Re-install now button to try re-installing WordPress incase there is an error in core.

Also if you want you can send me WP and FTP logins so I can go in and see what is being returned from WordPress which should give us a good idea of the issue – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/support/

I pressed the “reinstalled” button in Wordpress. It improved! Now the videos are showing up. But in the editor, auto embedding videos still doesn’t work. Same for the event dates, I still can’t set them.

Sorry for the delay, I see you opened a ticket and I have assigned it to myself. I didn’t have too much time this weekend to go through my tickets but I will get to yours as soon as possible, thank you for your patience!

I have updated my theme to the newest version but still cannot get the events calandar to include any years past 2016 http://hamiltoncameraclub.com/wordpress/calendar-view/

It looks like your site is on version 3.6.2 but the fix was added in 3.6.3 – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/earth/changelog/

Can you try updating with the Envato Market plugin? http://www.wpexplorer.com/envato-market-plugin-guide/

Hi. Please, how do I change the alt-text that displays on social icons? And how can I change the order in which they are arranged? Thanks a lot. Best regards. Bruno

It is fine but if you update your theme in the future you will have to re-do the edits, which is why modifying via a child theme would be ideal so you don’t have to re-do your edits ever.

I would need to use two icons for Facebook, with two different links: would it be possible or it is very complicated? Thanks for your patience… Best regards. Bruno

You could edit the array you edited earlier to make add a “facebook_two” option. It wouldn’t be to hard, it’s essentially the same thing you did before.

I’ve added a Youtube video to the video player, and would like to disable the suggested videos that appear at the end. I’ve included ”?rel=0” to the end of the Youtube video link, but the suggested videos are still appearing. Appreciate any help you can provide.

Oh it’s just not responsive because it’s in a text block. If you add this class it will work beautifully – https://cl.ly/0Q35180l363x

WOOT! Thanks AJ! That fixed it perfectly!

Hi, i cant save dates on calendar, but example i create an event, but when the save it or publish it, the dates are not saved. And all the events are in 1 January. Please help.

Is your site in a different language? I actually noticed a small bug with some languages and have already fixed it. I can push out an update soon with the fix if you want to test. Can you confirm if this is the case with the language?

Hi, I use Spanish. If you like please give me the fix so i can test it.

Since your support licence has expired you can not submit tickets anymore so please email me directly at wpexplorer ( at gmail dot com) so I can email you the fixed files to test.

Hi there! Is it possible to disable the bottom footer?

Sorry for a second comment, I’m also struggling with the theme. I have the ultimate add-on plugin in conjunction with visual composer and I cannot get images to parallax on any page?

Hi,

  • You can add the following code at Theme Options > Custom CSS to hide this region:
body #footer-botttom { display: none; }
  • Is your theme and Visual Composer up to date? http://wpexplorer-themes.com/earth/changelog/ If so and you still have issues, please contact the add-on developers for help with their plugin. It’s very important to update the theme because that is how updates are provided for the Visual Composer (after updating the theme you should see a link to update the plugin at Appearance > Install Plugins).

HI there, does this theme come in HTML5 by any chance? Love this theme and really want it in HTML5.

If you look at the source code you can see the doctype is set to HTML5, it includes HTML5 shiv and it does make use of some of the elements such as <nav>. But to be clear, using html5 elements or using standard elements like divs and spans doesn’t make any difference in terms of site speed, SEO or other ;)

Hello WPExplorer,

1. I need help with making full-width format my default for all the pages; Blog, single post, the page for events for plugin the event calendar and so on… is there a way i can change that in the editor somewhere. here is the link for what i mean: http://www.permacultureinternationale.org/events/

2. I am also using “The event calendar” plugin just because there is something wrong with events generator that comes with this theme. The start and end date don’t work and the maps don’t show. Maybe you can help me with that as well. http://www.permacultureinternationale.org/event/permaculture-humaine/

3. Is there a way to use Visual Composer on blog posts?

Thank you very much. Alina

Hi,

It’s still full-width but the image just isn’t large enough – https://cl.ly/j1iE – and your paragraph has spaces after each line – https://cl.ly/j2Mm – but it’s definitely a full-width post.

Your date is very strangely formatted. Please go to Settings > General in your WordPress dashboard and double check your “Date Format” and re-save.

Of course you can remove the date completely with some custom CSS.

ps: I noticed your support license expired which means you bought the theme over 6 months ago. Are you just finally getting to working it? I’m just curious…thanks!

thanks a lot , yes i bought it a while ago but now am able to work on it. the post is full-width you are right but look at the featured image here: http://www.permacultureinternationale.org/savoir-explorer-comprendre-pour-mieux-agir-sample/ how do i get it to be full size as well. thanks

No more questions! greatly appreciated!

The image will only look full-width if the image set for the featured image is large enough. You can add some CSS to “force” the image to extend all the way, but it will become blurry.

Hi, I just updated the theme and I can’t set the start and end dates for an event. When I save the event, the field get back to empty.

Hi,

Can you do a couple things:

1. Try clearing your cache. 2. Go to Appearance > Install Plugins and make sure to update your Visual Composer to the latest version included.

I tested locally and I’m not having issues with either of these things.

Oh can you also please confirm that you are on version 3.6.5 – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/earth/changelog/ – thanks!

vgStef

vgStef Purchased

Yes, I have the latest theme 3.6.5 and the plugins are updated. I cleared the cache. For the events_grid or blog_grid, if I choose One column, it doesn’t work and it shows 4 columns. But if I chose 2 columns, it shows 2 columns. I guess the default is 4 columns.

In classic I see that the shortcodes don’t get updated with columns=”1”, only with 2 columns. So me workaround was to chose 2 columns in visual composer, than edit the shortcode manually.

Unfortunately, if I come back to the page to edit it, I lose the column option in the shortcode and I have to edit it manually again.

Sounds like a Visual Composer issue. What version are is the Visual Composer on your site?

If you want you can always open a ticket and request it be sent to “AJ” and I can log in and have a look at your site for you and make sure it’s all working correctly – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/support/

This theme was working fine but after some updates the behavior changed and I’m hoping to get it back the way it was without renewing support.

I’ve been using the Visual Composer basic “Image Gallery” element with PrettyPhoto onClick – that still works but it used to include the media library caption at the top of the lightbox and that suddenly stopped displaying.

PLEASE help me get it back. I’ve tried contacting WPBakery but they said this must be something the theme is doing. Any help would be most appreciated.

It looks like none of your images have a title tag which is needed for the lightbox – https://cl.ly/jPnp

Can you go to your Media Library can you double check that items have titles and alt attributes. Thanks!

Thanks for that hint – all the images have a title and description – the description used to appear above the lightbox. I played around and see that now whatever is in the Alt Text box now appears above the lightbox. I guess I’ll have to copy and paste those descriptions into the Alt text box for every image unless you have a better solution. Why would the behavior have changed?

I love your Earth theme and I’ve used it for a long time. However, the mobile version seems to make the menu stretch far too wide. Look at www.JoshClaybourn.com. How can I correct this?

Sorry for the second comment, but is there anything else I need to do in order to get help with the menu issue? I noticed most comments receive a response within a day or two, but mine has not.

Nevermind, I figured it out. It was an issue with custom CSS. Thanks!

Sorry I never saw your original comment :( I’m glad you got it working though nice!

AJ – Real quick, I noticed your changelog on your site has it at v3.7.0. I downloaded but got 3.6.5?

Also there is a forward slash that’s getting added to the main site url when clicking the logo. You can see this on your live demo when you hover over the logo. Not sure where this is getting added from but can we remove.

Thanks in advance!

  • That’s weird if the update never posted :( I’ll update it in a few minutes.
  • Cool, thanks I added the fix for the logo as well. Update should be ready later today (deciding if I should add WooCommerce support first before updating – thoughts?)

AJ – thanks for the reply. If it’s not too much work regarding the Woo support for Earth than yes. I can wait. Thanks again for all your excellent work!
