Hi Van… seems like the list icons stopped working in the latest update v 1.5. Will there be an update/ fix for that soon? Thanks!

Hey Volck!

could you please send me a URL with an example related? I´ll check this out and sure, if needed it will be fixed in the next update. Please, send me a link with the details via our contact form here.

I´ll let you know asap, thanks! : )

Oh thank you, Van!

Hi Van, I have a question regarding the homepage. How did you set up the picture overlapping the diagonal “angle”? Did you simply add margin or padding to the image or is there another “trick” to do this?

Hey everythinggolden!

yes, you have some special classes to help you doing something like this. If you installed the XML in order to create the dummy content based in the demo, just open the VC module related to this element which has assigned a class following the guidelines that you can see in this part of the documentation, please check this out:

In adition, we have included some helper classes to let you work with some elements from the page builder with in a more accurate way. Imagine that you have placed an image into your composition and you would like to move it 50px to the top from its current place. To do this you just need to add, using the “Extra Class” feature from Visual Composer, a new class like this -> ”.move-top-50” or ”.move-bottom-50”. You can move to top or bottom in 50 intervals starting from 50 to 400.

I hope that this will help you out! :)

PRE-SALE QUESTION:

1) Is it possible to put a video as background? (first thing you’d see when landing on the page) What type of video?

Hello csavu7,

you can place a video as background, this video could be feed by Youtube or Vimeo. Also, you can embed videos within the page content.

Hello, I have a problem on my site when I click the back button on the browser is not reloaded the page, you can help me. Michele

Hey Michele!

you should not have any problem with this. Before, please, make sure that you have updated your site with the last theme version available. Also, you should check if some plugin could be breaking this browser feature in your site. After this, if the problems remain, write me using the contact form in my profile and I´ll have a look at this closer. For this, I´ll need to know which browser version are you using and some more details in order to understand better this particular issue.

I hope it will be useful! : )

Hello, how can I change the direction of the lines in the “Angles Layout” to be reversed. Instead of going from Top Left to Bottom Right, I want it reversed, to be from Top Right to Bottom Left. How can I do this?

Hello, I tried this, however it didn’t work. The lines are still showing same from top left to bottom right. I tried opening in incognito mode so there is no caching.

Hi! Could you please open a private support ticket and provide there more details about your installation? I´ll try to help with directly in order to you can have this working as you need :)

Ticket submitted. Thank you!

Hello, hoping you can help: for some reason my menu is also visible in the footer although in the menu settings I haven’t ticked this option. Do you have an idea what might be happening? http://www.consulting-ap.com/ thanks a lot in advance

Hello again! A follow up on my email yesterday (I also sent you another email). I am very proud to say that I have solved most of my problems (such a novice in these things) :-)

Two problem remains: 1) how do I reduce the height of the footer. I have tried versions of this but it just ignores me: .footer {height: 50px !important;}. 2) on mobile view, there is a huge space between the menu and the content. How do I reduce that?

Thanks so much for your patience with me.

So sorry, one more thing: I thought I had nailed this one – I am trying to change the underline color of the the sharing links in the menu upon hovering. I tried this code but it also ignores me here:

.social-sh-menu ul li #twitter:hover{color:#a3a6a5 !important;}

Hey Ben! I have answered to your mail in order to better discuss about these custom tweaks you need to do in your site.

I hope it will help you out! :)

Hi, a friend of mine gave me Flamingo as a gift for my birthday. I installed the theme and tried to activate Visual Composer with my Envato Account, but I didn’t make the purchase, so it tells me that I can’t activate it. I have the licence number, but I don’t now how to do or where to put it, in order to make it work. Can you help me?

Ciao frilens!

When VC is included with a theme, you can use it and you only can run the plugin version packed with the theme. Within each update, we use to update and do any required update to the theme in order to ensure the compatibility with the included VC version. So having into account this, you should not need to register the included plugin. But, if you already have an active license, you just need to open Visual Composer > Product License > ‘Activate Visual Composer’ button. This will open a prompt to start your license validation via Envato API.

So make sure that you have a valid/active VC license and have into account that we can´t ensure full compatibility with latest version of the plugin when they are not included as part of the theme package yet. So we don´t recommend to install versions that have not been included with the theme before.

Comunque, tanti auguri!

Hi, any update on whether the theme will update to VC 5.x and is it compatible with WP 4.7?

Hey jazz!

The theme is compatible with WP4.7. Also, we´ll update the theme soon (early in Jan) and we´ll include the last plugin version once we´ll check that everything runs correctly. Notice that we only include the most important updates for the plugin and some version could be escaped.

I hope that this will be useful! : )

Hello

I have a problem when I install the new version of the plugin gravity forms I can’t see the formular … The theme is no more compatible with this plugin?

Thanks

Hey there!

the plugin included with Flamingo is Contact Form 7, the one we check regularly and the one officially implemented with the theme. Ensuring full compatibility with all the plugins out there is near to impossible, more when they are premium plugins like this one.

The best would be to recommend you to install CF7 or if you are very interested in using that plugins, you should provide the version in conflict with the theme in order to us we can check it with the current theme version and see better how to help on this regard.

I hope that it will be useful! : )

Thank’s :) How can you check?

Hi! The plugin is included with the theme. When you first install the Flamingo, starts a wizard to guide you and recommend to install some plugins in order to have the best setup. Also, if you install the XML with dummy content, you can see some contact forms examples. In any case, you have some guidelines for this in the documentation.

If you want to install CF7, you can do it directly from the plugins area within your WP dashboard or directly by downloading it from here and install it in your site.

I hope it will help you out! : )

Hi Van,

It seems like 1.5.1 has issues:

(1) Portfolio page—arbitrarily displaying hexagon = “W” that was never there before

(2) Portfolio page—Visual Composer content does not appear

Cheers! ~Russell

Hi Van!

I’ve moved my site to http://romantic.li .... and I reverted back to v 1.5 because of the “hexagon W” issue on 1.5.1. However I did notice that with either version, the portfolio page will not display any content, rows, etc. besides the portfolio grid.

If you like, I still (temporarily) have http://sweetdanger.com up and running, and I can install v 1.5.1 then direct you to a portfolio page to have a look?

RSVP!

Russell

Hey Russel!

I can´t check out swerrdanger.com, please could you write me using the contact form in my profile and provide access to it in order to check this out better? Many users have upgraded their sites and we have not detected something like that. Notice that updating VC, sometimes bring details that could escape to our reviews and we could need to double check in different sites in order to understand this better, so please, write me back via contact form and let´s review your case to understand this better.

Thanks!

Hi Van, yes! I just sent you the link in a private message, but here it is again: http://sweetdanger.co/portfolio/

Hii guys, downloading manually your last update i can’t find lib/plugins/js_composer.zip to update visual composer that now is not working: any suggestion please?

Hey pecorazoppa2,

Make sure that you are trying the correct path, which is this (after unzipping the file):

flamingo > lib > plugins > js_composer.zip

The file is there in the package, you should be able to find it within your download from Themeforest. If this is not the case, please, write me using the contact form in my profile and attach a screenshot about your folder structure in order to see exactly what you are seeing in there.

I hope that this will help you out!

Thank you guys, i checked again and now everything works fine. Thanks a loto for your promptly answer. Have a very good day. :-)

Glad hearing this! Have a great day too! :)
