Translation issue: I have translated most of the items succesfully. Just in the blog form some items are not translated, although I have translated them in PO file: “Your email address will not be published” is not translated, also “name” labels in the form.

Translation is OK now, problem was cache.

Glad to hear AlainL!

Cheers :)

Can anyone suggest a microlancer or a professional who can customise this theme for me. I have already started work on it and need it complete.

Hey lyndachat! Unfortunately I personally don’t have any to recommend but hopefully someone else on here with some experience can lend a name :)


Hi! I’ve purchased the theme and i have a question about the home slider.

I’ve to put a vimeo video on it, is this code allright?

<iframe src=”//” width=”900” height=”506” frameborder=”0” webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

When i load the homepage it starts playing the audio but the image never starts

This is where i’m testing it


Hey elale82!

An autoplay attribute wouldn’t be a good idea since the slider will still autorotate anyway. However it seems you’ve turned that off so I can’t see the bug, but I in general I would suggest you didn’t try and do that – if you want an autoplaying video consider the nectar slider for its video background option :)


Nectar slider is not letting me add new slides:

1) I add the slide 2) I upload the picture, do the settings, everything seems fine. I save.


when i’m browsing the slides, all the thumbnails are ok but for new slides, it says “image not added yet”. But the image has been added, when I edit the slide, the image is there, but it’s not showing on the slides list.

Also, when I use the nectar slider shortcode it’s not showing the image (related of course with the “image not added yet”).

I thought that there’s maybe a limit on the number of slides, but I deleted a slide, add a new one, and I have the issue.

I’m using 3.0.0, and I have the feeling it may have been used after updating that. (unless I have any other troubles with Wordpress)

Cheers Ramiro

Hello guys again. It was a plugin the issue. Not sure which one, but some conflicts with the creation of new slider. If I identify which one it is, i’ll post it here (even though it does not prove 100% that’s the plugin, it could be a combination of my plugins + customisations)

Guys, the plugin breaking the Slider is the Shortcode Exec PHP 1.50 . Cheers, Ramiro

Hey again Ramiro! Thanks for posting that information for any others who might encounter this conflict :)


Hi Theme Nectar :)

I have a question related to the portfolio images on home page. The sizes are rectangular, and there are three images.

1. How to have three images, but in square proportions? 2. also, to have squares on portfolio pages? 3. how to have four square images on a page? * full page view)and as many rows as I want? like here :

Thank you for your time and help Best wishes

Hey New_Castle!

1/2. You’ll need to open the functions.php file and then edit this line:
add_image_size( 'portfolio-thumb', 600, 403, true ); 
to be the size you desire. After that you’ll need to regenerate all your featured images by using this plugin:

3. The closest you can get without custom development would be to use the fullwidth portfolio layout like this:

Cheers :)

Hi :)

As always very helpful.

Thank you for the first solution, it works like a charm.

Th second, I am working on it. I will let you know. Best wishes.

ciao ciao!

Sounds good & you’re welcome :)


Hi, how can I change active tab color? Thanks

Thanx a lot, works like a charm!

There is a “Extra class name” Would it be possible to control individual group of tabs with different colors? Possibly using the “Accent Color Options” ?

You’re welcome!

The extra class name is going to get applied to the entire tabs element so you can add something like “cool-colors” and then use this css:

html body .cool-colors .wpb_tabs_nav li:nth-child(1) {
  border-color: #000!important;
  background-color: #000!important;
html body .cool-colors .wpb_tabs_nav li:nth-child(2) {
  border-color: #333!important;
  background-color: #333!important;
html body .cool-colors .wpb_tabs_nav li:nth-child(3) {
  border-color: #666!important;
  background-color: #666!important;

Cheers :)

How to turn off the sticky menu ?

Add this into the Custom CSS box located in your Salient Options panel:

#header-outer { position: absolute!important; }

Cheers :)

Hi ! Thank you for this awesome theme (: ! I’d like to shrink my portfolio item’s padding by at least half, could I get a little help with that? I tried :

body .portfolio-items .col { padding: 0px!important; }

But it didn’t budge. Thank you for your help (: !

If you can live without the social icons the rest of the mod would still require a bit more custom development than I can reasonably give, but a developer on microlancer should be able to wrap this up for you relatively quick and cost effectively if you need it :)


Noted with thanks! Thanks once again for all your help (:

You’re very welcome :)

Hello, Firstly I would like to say well done! This theme is incredible and the amount of customisation is unbelievable.

I do have a question regarding the map on the contact page. I would like to use this map on the homepage with the same setting I have setup. Is there a shortcode or would I need to alter some files?

Thank you

My apologies, I have found the answer here

Hey glfoster – glad you found the answer :)


Hey Nectar – Just wanted to thank you again for your awesome work and all your support. I have finished our site, only took seven days from start to fin thanks to your amazing theme!

Anyway thought you might like to see – take a look when you get a chance.

Thanks again! :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to say that SamAsh – your site looks amazing!

Congratulations! :)

Thanks so much Nectar – could not have done it without your theme!

You’re very welcome!

Cheers :)

Hi, I have really enjoyed working with your theme thus far, however for the past few days, I’ve been trying to wrap my head around how to create the photography section of my website and the best way to use the theme functionality to do this.

There are about 4 galleries (different photo themes) that I would like to create. I would like the Photography portfolio page to show the galleries, and then once you click on a gallery for it to go to that gallery page and have either a full screen slider or a fullwidth masonry layout with lightbox when an image is clicked on.

here is an example of what i mean.

Is this possible with Salient?

Thank you

If you don’t want any clipping you can use the basic slider style the gallery element offers and change the row its sitting to be full width content for the type :)

Hi, is this in a portfolio post type? I havent managed to get the effect of a fullscreen slider. I tested it several times. I added a row in the VC, set that to Full Width Content, inserted Gallery with basic slider, set image size to full. Enabled Fullwidth Portfolio Item Layout.

The image has a zoomed in clipped effect. Am I doing something incorrectly?

Hey again – yes, there shouldn’t be any issue with this. Anyway I could grab a URL to check a page where the images are clipping when following the steps you’ve mentioned above?


Ticket #165001 – Site won’t load in IE8. Hangs up on each page- seems to be font awesome or something. I tried a fix from the public tickets- adjusting font-awesome.min.css, but no luck or difference on page.


Hey Ryan, I’ll be back with on the forum soon :)

Hiya Does your theme use standard WordPress Gallery function post? if yes can you show me and example? Thanks Farrah

lovely theme

Hey Farrah!

You can use the element (which allows you to upload images in the same way) to create gallery sliders which look like the Nectar Slider and like this:


Please could you tell how to do the following.

I have made my accent one color in the back end, but this looks like its the roll over color as the initial state is a ‘washed out’ version then the roll over becomes my accent color – how do i revers this action?

Hey Caroline!

Add this into the Custom CSS box located in your Salient Options panel:
body .nectar-button {
  opacity: 1!important;
body .nectar-button:hover {
  opacity: 0.7!important;


Thanks again for your response – amazing customer service

You’re very welcome :)

Hi Phil!

I just have a quick question regarding CHMOD (Changing File Permissions). I noticed that you did it for your website and I was hoping to do it for my own personal website you see. Could I ask what 3 numbers did you use for wp-includes and wp-content please? I basically want to use them for my own file permissions on my own site and I thought you would be perfect to ask!

Thank you!

Hey Gareth! By default, servers will most likely set those folders to 755 and the files inside to 644 – which is a good setup :)


Hi Nectar, mahiette below asked my question already and you replied with the code below. Where does that code go? Thanks

plz help me .. how can i change the background for the “slider” on the top.. into a “transparent color”. i tried the codes you sent but no luck. home slider background color / change black into black transparent

ThemeNectar Hey again mahiette,

this snippet is valid and tested:

body #featured { background: none!important; } body #featured, body #featured article { background-color: transparent!important; } There’s nothing else setting BG colors on the slider to remove other than that.


Hey brendanmburke!

It goes in the Custom CSS box located in your Salient Options panel > General Settings tab :)


Hi There, I bought your theme and its is really choppy and lags when scrolling with or without the option checked in the General settings. I checked your demo again and its is choppy as well.

Is there anything I can do to stop this? Maybe keeping the Top menu fixed has something to do with it? not sure. Please help.

I think it could be the parallaxing on the main slider. I am using Home-Slider Only as my template. Is there a way to remove the parallaxing?

Hey Slyguy,

The Home Slider can not have that effect disabled without custom development, but the Nectar Slider can – I would recommend you switch to that slider instead as it’s the higher performing slider as well :)

Here’s my tutorial on using it:


Hey Phectar,

Things are running smoothly and people are really digging my new site thanks again for this amazing theme. I just have a few questions about customization and was wondering if you could lend a hand again?

1- Changing the heart color and the default white on the social icons? 2- How to have more than 4 blog posts visible on the blog page? 3- Changing the comments background color from white to some other color? 4-The code that you provided for the drop shadow under blog post images isn’t working still. wondering if you had a fix for that? 5-putting a little padding below my logo without offsetting the menu?

Kind regards,


Hey CS,

Glad to hear people are digging the site! :)

body .container-wrap .nectar-social .n-shortcode a:hover .icon-salient-heart, body .container-wrap .hovered .nectar-love i, body .container-wrap .loved .nectar-love i, body .container-wrap .nectar-love:hover i {
  color: #ff5c14!important;
a.pinterest-share i, a.facebook-share i, .twitter-share i, .google-plus-share i, .icon-salient-heart, .icon-salient-heart-2 {
   color: #787878!important;

2. You’ll need to use the actual blog element rather than the recent posts one or you would have to modify the functionality of that in the code.

.comment-list li.comment > div {
  background-color: #657175!important;
.comment-list .comment-author {
    color: #FFFFFF!important;
.post-content img {  box-shadow: 0px 1px 4px rgba(0,0,0,0.4); }
header#top #logo img {
    margin-bottom: 15px!important;

Cheers :)

Phectar thanks so much!

Kind regards. :)

You’re welcome :)


I have already installing the Salient and it run perfectly. I install & configure Contact Form 7, and this run perfectly in all browsers less Safari.

In Safari I find a problem: The submit button not show (but in others browsers yes..). What happend? What can I do? Page url is “”

Thank you very much for the help. Cheers, Pau.

Hey paulgoethe!

I’ve just checked the URL in Safari 5.1.7 on PC and can’t see this behavior – what version of Safari are you using and what OS?

Cheers :)


I’m repair it a little but now the space is between button and footer.

My Safari version: Versión 4.0.4 (6531.21.10) My OS version: 10.6.3

Thank’s! Cheers

Hey again! Is there anyway you can update your Safari to a more recent version to see if the issue is still there since that release is about 5 years old?

Great theme!

Is it possible to have the background white instead of the grey in the blog?


Add this into the Custom CSS box located in your Salient Options panel:, body.single-post  {
   background-color: #fff!important;

Cheers :)
