Hi, Some questions that need your help.

1/ SHORTCODE How can i increase the size of my titles when choosing heading

2/ POSTS How to always select the share links to be visible when creating a new post

How to disable the date

It is possible to add a slider images on my posts pages

3/ MENU How can i add a search bar in my menu bar

Thx by advance

Hello and thank you for choosing my theme!

1) With CSS you can increase it. You’ll have to add an extra line at the end of your style.css file, e.g.:

.tp-title-3 h1{ font-size: 23px; }

I wrote a tutorial about customizations, please read it for more info: http://themeprince.com/tutorials/how-to-customize-your-wordpress-theme

2) Currently you have to set them for each post. I’ll figure out something in the future to make it easier.

3) On which page would you like to disable the date? You’ll have to find the PHP file first, e.g.: if you want to remove the date from the masonry blog posts, you need to edit content-masonry.php file and remove the date part.

Lucky you, I also have a tutorial for this kind of theme customization too. :) http://themeprince.com/tutorials/customizing-wordpress-theme-with-a-child-theme

4) You can’t add widgets to the menu bar currently. You can place a search widget in the footer areas.

Hello, Tried to add your extra line at the end of my style.css. But Nothing change

Firrst you need to find the element you want to customize with the method I explain in the tutorial: http://themeprince.com/tutorials/how-to-customize-your-wordpress-theme

and once you have the element, you can style it.

How can i add a close button to go back to portfolio when a the project page is open, without having to click on portfolio button?

Thx for your help

Insert a link into project pages which takes the visitor back.

is there chance to change Panel Backgrond Texture on sidebar settings ?

Hello and thank you for choosing my theme!

You can modify the texture images in Photoshop as you wish. They are located in yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/princess/images/texture-XXX-XXX.jpg

before buying the theme i want to know is it possible to get the content page open from left side ?

thank you


even if we edit code is it still impossible ?

If you can edit the code (JS, JQuery, HTML, CSS), then everything is possible! :)

we know that but can you help us in this way ? our customers need left content page . if you help us we will buy the theme .

Hi, thanks for the themes. I have the themes but it’s old version. I have one question, how to add/insert mp3 player on to the themes. Thank you

For that you’ll have to customize the theme and insert your mp3 player into sidebar.php. Probably you’ll need a coder for that. However in that case it would be cheaper for you to buy Empire II, I believe.

ok, thank you for the respon and I will try.

sorry I have one question again. when I refresh the page it show like this : http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj320/achmadmuadzin/Empire_zpscztsd2kr.jpg

just info in my back end it shown “domain\wp-content\themes\empire\framework\theme.php on line 641”

please help me. thank you

Please send me access to your WP admin in private message and I’ll have a closer look!

FYI: After the new WordPress version is out (4.4) I’ll release the next update!

Hi, is possible insert a widget area on the bar at left for insert an imange and text

Hello! In this theme you can’t insert widget into the menu panel. However you can insert any content below the menu in Theme options – Layout & Animation – Content below menu section.

Why is the original Empire theme no longer available? This one promises “Future Updates”, but there is no way to download the Empire Theme I already purchased.

I sent you a message

I received it… Thank you for your support!!

No problem. :)

Hi. Great theme. It will be more updates and support?

The question is no longer relevant! Thanks for the detailed help. It is a pity that it’s not working when you enable AJAX content loading.

Hello Dobrodukh and thank you for choosing my theme!

Sorry for the late reply but it was Christmas weekend in case you haven’t noticed. :)

The theme handles AJAX request this way (#). In case you really need plugins you’ll have to disable AJAX, I see you figured it out already.

However please check back from time to time because one of the upcoming updates will solve this problem. ;)

Thanks, I will wait for the updates.

I read the comments here and haven’t noticed any updates since the last year. Can we expect any updates soon, especially regarding video background? I’ll rather wait and purchase your theme because it would be perfect for my project. Any time frame for the update? Thanks

Hello and thank you for your interest!

I’ll finish Princess update this week and I’ll force myself to make the huge update finally for this theme. I have to recreate the AJAX engine from scratch, among other things which is not a small task. I’d say April might be the month of new version release.

Hello again!

I spent the last weeks to add video to the slider but unfortunately Firefox can’t handle dinamically added videos properly. It eats all the memory and freezes. The only way it would work if there would be only one set of slides for all the pages, but that’s not what most of the people need. In case you want I can customize it for you like that, just send me a private message to discuss the details.

Hi, I’m really interested in this theme! Is it possible to use it for a multilanguage webiste? what multilanguage plugin are supported / can be used? Thank you in advance

Hello and thank you for your interest! Here is the online documentation which covers the translation too and probably other questions you might have: http://themeprince.com/themes/empireii/documentation/#translate

Does Polylang plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/polylang/) works with the theme?

The theme has been coded by WordPress standards, so properly coded plugins should be compatible with it.

Dear everyone!

I uploaded a major update which will become active soon (version 2.0). Please backup your active theme version before updating!

New AJAX engine

Removed the #hashtag in AJAX mode so Google and Facebook can crawl pages properly now! The new AJAX engine uses the new HTML5 history API to manipulate the URL bar instead of the #hashtag way. This method is already supported by all major browsers.

However this option is still not recommended if you’re using many 3rd party plugins due to technology limitations. Why? After AJAX content request is done we should apply the javascripts on the loaded content. It’s easy if we exactly know all the required javascripts from the requested page. But it’s not possible since users can install any plugins. Loading and executing all JS from the requested page would be a solution but it’s not bulletproof and it’s heavy for some browser. However if you’re familiar with javascript there is a workaround. In AJAX mode the theme calls ../empire/js/ajax-load.js file once the AJAX request is complete. This file contains all the javascript functions that we wanted to execute once a new content is loaded. Just place your plugin’s starting function in the file and it should work.

About the background slider and video slides

I spent the last weeks to add video to the slider but unfortunately Firefox can’t handle dinamically added videos properly. It eats all the memory and freezes. The only way it would work if there would be only one set of slides for all the pages, but that’s not what most of the people need.

Also many other fixes and updates will be included:

* Update: Better AJAX engine! * Update: ThemePrince shortcodes * Update: TGPM plugin activator * Update: Contact form 7 plugin * Update: Revslider plugin and documentation * Update: Thickbox image viewer * Fix: in AJAX mode if site is closed on homepage and we navigate back there it will be closed again * Fix: WP_widget() is deprecated notice problem solved in debug mode * Fix: responsive mode active menu highlight * Fix: category page had duplicated or no pagination in some cases * Fix: Google maps shortcode - added default values for zoom and height parameters * Fix: custom widget area saving bug

Since the new release, some issues need to be fixed when ajax is on: toogle, Google map, and opening of the homepage when the option ‘site is close…’ is selected in page opening animation section.

Hello! Please send me access to your WP admin in private message via my user profile and I’ll have a deeper look!

Thanks for the fixe !

No problem! :)

You can hide the url of the tracks on mp3 player? I can show a cover for each track? I can play the tracks at random?

Hello and thank you for your interest!

Hide url of mp3 tracks You can’t. Even if the path were somehow obfuscated, there is always a way to capture the audio.

Cover for tracks By default you can’t, you’ll have to customize it for that.

Random play No.

Hello, why cant I get the opening animation to happen every time I reload the page in browser?

Hello! I replied you in email!

Hello—when AJAX is disabled, the background is just solid black. I do not wish to use AJAX or have a dynamic background, a simple .jpg is all I want in there. Would the best way to do this be to, in tp_bgslider.css, insert it as a background-image: url() line? Is there a way to disable AJAX and have a static image background within the config menus?

Hello! In Theme options – Background slider you should be able to set a background image. If you set just 1 image, it will be static. It should work either when AJAX is on or off. In case it’s still not working, please send me access to your WP admin via the contact form on my profile and I’ll have a look!

Also make sure that you read the documentation which is included in the larger ZIP or alternatively online here: http://themeprince.com/themes/empireii/documentation/

Yes, on my instance, with AJAX disabled, it wasn’t loading anything. Inspecting the element led me to tp_bgslider.css -> under #tp-bgslider, add background-image: url(”...”). Then, under #tp-bgslider .load, comment out background-color: #000. That fixes it, but I’m not sure that’s a bug-free way to do it

That being said, I’ve used this theme for maybe 2 years now, and it’s completely superb. My main issue was performance, which is why I wanted to disable AJAX. But, after installing the newest update (which I don’t run) on a better server, the AJAX is so much faster than before that I don’t think I need to disable it. I’ll option out of the animations, they’re lovely but it’s easy to knock it down to the basics. Have had no trouble editing the CSS to customize. If you want to see a very old implementation, visit jackrabbit.tv—hope to move to latest version over next few days. Glad I can stick with this theme for the update.

I’ll investigate the background image issue.

Yes, I rewrote the AJAX base from scratch recently.

I’m glad you like the theme! :)
