Hi, love the theme! One question: When I change the color in Theme options=>color and then I click save changes, it will always go back to its default color (greenish). How can I change it?

Hi

Can you please check if you have the latest version of SeaShell theme installed? We had that problem with saving of options but we fixed it.

I hope that this helps

Didn’t hear from support. I can’t save header or logo using this theme or others I have purchased from you. How do I fix this issue? I enter header pixel height, hit save, it won’t save but returns to 76. Same with logo. I have to delete Sea Shell and put up a different theme.

Yes, the proper “helper” plugins are installed per theme.

Hello,

We’ve had complaints about the options not being saved in Firefox. This has been fixed in the latest update. Please make sure you have the latest version of the theme – 1.9.

Cheers, Meks team

Is this theme (still) under active development? Last Update was almost a year ago so just wondering if this is still active. Thanks

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your interest. :)

Currently, we don’t have any plans to abandon any of our existing themes. The same goes for Seashell. Some older and less popular themes may have longer update cycles in terms of new features, but you have our personal promise that each theme will get an update ASAP if any bugs or issues appear due to potential incompatibility with one of the next WordPress versions.

If you want to check our other themes, you can do it on this link here:

You can also reach out to us, and ask us to test-drive any of our themes for free, through this form here:

How can I use shortcodes in new wordrpress? In editor i can see shortcode icon.

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us.

I suppose that you’re talking about our Meks Flexibile Shortcodes plugin.

You can find the icon if you’re using Gutenberg Classic Block. It’ll be located on the same spot as in the old editor. Everything will be pretty much the same in that regard.

If you’re talking about some non Meks shortcodes – you can use Gutenberg Shortcode block Classic block(same as before).

I hope that helps.

Hi : ) How do we make complete right sidebar sticky? I don’t see it anywhere in options. Thanks Cheers

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us.

Seashell doesn’t have that option by default like some of our other themes.

You can use this plugin here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/mystickysidebar/

Feel free to reach out to our support team if you need any further help.

Best regards,

Meks team

Hello, Thank you for the reply. That plugin does not work out of the box as the plugin description itself say it should work with most themes. What customization do i need to do in order to achieve this? Was it tested with this theme? It’s quite a simple request, sticky sidebar, so i’m not happy with being forced to use a separate plugin but then at least let’s make it work. Thank you

Hello,

The plugin is working properly on my end, but you need to configure the sidebar settings, just like in any other plugin.

So, you’ll use the sidebar id #sidebar, and add it in Settings > WP Sticky sidebar > Sticky class. Please take a look at the screenshot in the attachment:

So, there is no need for any kind of customization.

I hope that brought some clearance on this.

Hello again : ) Question regarding the translation of the theme. Is it possible to change some strings that include ” -”, such as “Category -” , “Tag -” , “Author -” etc to be actually configured with ” – ”, meaning having extra space after - This way like it is right now, a category page title looks like this: “Category -Tech” , whether it makes much more sense to be “Category – Tech”. Is it possible?

If it can be done through a .po file, i will translate it myself, just let me know how to use your .pot file, because i don’t see any .po file in theme folder.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us, and thank you for using SeaShell. ​ ​You should try to go to the Theme options > Translation and there you will be able to change these words. ​ ​If you have some further question please reach our support team on this link https://mekshq.com/contact/#support

​Best regards, ​Meks team.

Hi, that’s what i meant. Within your translations (in theme options) some strings include ” -” such as “Tag -”, “Category -”, “Author -” etc.. My question is , can you add one extra space after – ? If i add it in translation, it’s not working, it has to be added in the original string.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply. :)

I suppose that you got the answer from our support team. We will address this issue to our product team, and we’ll fix it in the next update most probably.

Best regards,

Meks team

Another issue with mobile view. If we turn on Display Logo Description, it shows fine on desktop, but on mobile its totally not responsive. I understand it’s one of your older themes, but for a 50$ theme, it lacks quite a few pretty basic features in the theme options, plus some features are totally not responsive. Can we expect some improvements on this?

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your feedback.

You’re correct, we do have a bug there. I’ll forward your message as a bug report to our product team, and we’ll fix this with the next update. Till then, please add this CSS to your Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:

@media (max-width: 480px) { .shl-site-description { display: none !important; } }

Regarding the improvements, and the theme price – As a support specialist, I don’t have any kind of influence on price determination. Some people would say that it is expensive, while the other would say that it is cheap. You can always take a look at our change log, and see what we have done so far:

https://mekshq.com/docs/seashell-change-log/

Best regards,

Meks team

Thank you. Regarding the price of theme, it’s normal, but it should also include more UI changes available :)

Hi,

No problem. I’ll share your feedback with our product team. :)

Best regards,

Meks team

And another issue i found is that no meta is visible on mobile if i select default meta icons shape to be squared or rounded. Only if i select list items, it will be displayed on mobile. Is there any way to display at least the date on mobile if the squared shape is used?

Hello, how do we disable resizing of sticky header, but also keep opacity when scrolling?

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

I hope that our support team helped you with this issue.

Feel free to let us know if you need any further help.

Best regards,

Meks team

Yes, thank you.

Hello, i love your theme, great job : ) One big issue i have though is when i click on sharing the blog post via Facebook, in the preview in the pop, it inserts the meta icons (Date, Author, Search in Archive etc) before the text, and it looks very bad. I saw that happens on your demo site as well. Can we please change that?

It actually displays that (including autho description which is insane) even if i turn off meta stuff. This is kinda deal breaker for me, because i need to share my posts on a facebook page on a daily basis.Here is the screenshot of the issue: https://imgur.com/uzjCG0C

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us, and thank you for using SeaShell.

As you can see in this article in our documentation, the look of your Facebook post can’t be determined by the theme you’re using:

https://mekshq.com/faq/facebook-share-images-wordpress/?kb=33

You need to use an external plugin for that kind of purpose. My suggestion would be to use Yoast SEO because of the comprehensive documentation. You can find more about setting your social sharing with Yoast in this article here:

https://yoast.com/social-media-optimization-with-yoast-seo/

The title and the meta can be related to some issues on our side, but it can definitely be changed with Yoast. I’ll forward your message as a report to our product team, and if there is something that we can do about the meta-text, we’ll fix it in the next update.

Best regards,

Meks team

Okay, so on pages and posts with custom colors, I’m trying to determine a way to make the menu color match meta-data color. I don’t recall if this behavior is default, but I’m using Mega Max Menu so that may have changed the default behavior. Is there any way to do this?

by meta-data I mean meta-box

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for using SeaShell. :)

I can see that you’ve sent a support ticket as well.

Our support team has replied now.

If you need anything else, please don’t hesitate to let them know.

After the update my site blog.gdaq.pl, the articles on the main page disappeared.

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out.

​Try to activate parent theme if you made some modifications in the child theme.

Hi, i’m trying to update my old theme 1.5 but I’m receiving “An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security.” Also, is it possible to import and export the entire settings (with logo, etc.)?

Greetings, Thank you for contacting us. ​ ​Regarding the theme update, please check this article https://mekshq.com/faq/update-envato-wordpress-theme ​ ​Also, this error is not related to the theme, it’s related to your server settings and permissions.

Please, reach out your hosting/server support about this topic. ​ Regarding the import and export options, in the Theme options, exist the nice tool that you can use to save and backup all your theme options https://www.screencast.com/t/ql4ABF27xU5. It can be very useful if you want to copy and import your option settings to another site which is using the same theme, i.e when moving your site from localhost to live server. ​ ​If there is anything else I can help you with, please send a regular support ticket to our support team, and they’ll help you as soon as possible:https://mekshq.com/contact/#support

hi! The front-end meta box does not follow commands from the back-end theme options. The date, share the author meta boxes still continue to display, even when the tick is not checked. The comments do not display when the check is not ticked. The author box below the post does turn off when told in the options.

I hid the author box and the share box with css and that works, except when the site is displayed on a smaller screen. Then those boxes reappear.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

and also – on mobile… the share buttons do not work. Except for pinterest.

Greetings, Thank you for contacting us.

That seems odd. Can you please send a regular support ticket to our support team, and they’ll help you as soon as possible: https://mekshq.com/contact/#support

So another conundrum. Is there a way to add the ‘Post Color’ box to the edit & new post page on custom post types?

Hi,

Thank you for asking.

I suggest that you reach our support team for more insights on the modifications that you need to make in order to have such functionality. You can send us a new ticket message right here: https://mekshq.com/contact/#support

Regards.

I’ve been playing with the theme on my test site and I’ve got a bit a stumper. The only way I can get excerpts to appear is by actually inputing an excerpt into the ‘excerpt’ field of the individual posts. I’ve toggled the ‘Blog posts display’ option in the theme options on and off and switched from summary to ‘full text’ in the wordpress Reading Settings. Is there something I could be missing?

Hi,

That’s strange. Could you reach us via https://mekshq.com/contact/#support with some screenshots?

Cheers!

I figured it out. The issue had nothing to do with the theme and everything to do with custom post types. Thank you though!

Hi,

I am glad that you got it solved at the end!

Cheers!

Your theme support amp sites?

Hi,

You can use following plugin for creating AMP support: https://wordpress.org/plugins/amp/

Cheers!

hi Meks, thank you for an awesome theme! i’ve been using your theme for a bit but noticed that the whole layout is shifted to the left. Is there a way to fix it? thank you!

Hi ollievca,

I’m sorry to hear about the issues. As I mentioned in the comments for the Voice theme, it should be working fine. Please reach our support team and provide the URL for a quick inspection.

Regards.

Hello, Ive just recieved the email about the black friday deals, but the themes are not reduced in price when I add them to my shopping cart? They are coming up as the same price as normal? I would like to get 2 of your themes. Thank you, Miss C.

Hi,

Thank you for asking.

The theme is lowered to 29$ and it should be like that in your cart as well.

Regards.

Quick question, is it possible to enable sidebar just for homepage and not have it enabled for the blog post pages. It should be simple but not able to figure that out.

Hi,

Could you reach us via http://mekshq.com/contact/#support with more details, as it would require some altering of codes and similar.

Cheers!
