Hi,

Is there any instructional documentation teaching me how to use Ads Pro? It looks complicated.

Thanks,

Hi, here you have the link to the plugin documentation http://adspro.scripteo.info/documentation/

Regards, Luis.

Thanks

Hi,

I’ve followed the instructions to install the sport theme, and install the demo. But I’m having trouble with the top slider not appearing at all. I also followed the steps here: http://strictthemes.com/shockmag/how-to-set-a-slider-on-frontpage-as-on-live-preview/

But Step 2 doesn’t make sense- Select another presented options.

I can’t find where I’ve missed something in making the slider work.

Thanks

There you go, I also set the menus so you can modify them as you like taking my example as a starting point.

Regards, Luis.

Great thanks a lot. Looks good.

Nice!.. please if you think we are doing well rate us ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, it only takes a minute and it really help us out. Thanks for your support! :)

Hi. When will the next update happen?

Hello,

Just wondering if it’s possible to add a right sidebar on the full width front page?

Thanks

Just chasing the above question. Thanks.

Sure, just set it like this: http://take.ms/aq1Xw

Ah yes, of course. Thanks.

Hi,

I just visited my site and noticed that the header has changed scheme from what it is set at in Layout Settings, and there is also now some weird cartoon graphics on my header.

I have not made any changes in Theme Panel. Why has this happened and how do I revert back to the proper setting and remove the horrible cartoon graphics?

Thanks

Wow this is strange. I have never seen that custom CSS before. One thing I’ve really liked about your template is that I haven’t had to use custom CSS yet. I definitely did not past this. Is it possible I’ve been hacked or if this has automatically appeared due to another setting change I’ve done? Should I delete all this custom css? Thanks.

Well.. if you were been hacked you wouldn’t notice at first glance. They normally use server resources to spam others. There is a possibility but I don’t think so.

Just remove the undesired code and make a backup of the site, just in case you were right with the hacking.

Regards, Luis.

Ok thanks for the advice.

Hi,

For Ad Sidebar 2 it says it should appear in the middle of the homepage.

But it looks like it appears just under the slider header and not in the middle of the blogroll.

I also have an ad at the bottom which is fine, but I would like an ad right in the middle of the posts on the homepage.

Is this an error?

URL is: http://pittalkasia.com/

Thanks

Hi, just chasing this question. Thanks

My site is nearly ready to be promoted, I just need these last few questions answered thanks.

The ad sidebar 2 can’t be moved unless you move it in the code and it’s meant to be right under the slider like you see in the demo.

You can put a sidebar beside the blogroll by setting the name of the desired sidebar and choosing in which side you want it to show. http://take.ms/p1ewa

Hi,

All the posts on my front page- www.pittalkasia.com- are daily news posts. I also have longer feature stories on this website. Is there a way I can add posts for my feature articles in the middle of the page. Say after the second row of news posts? And also make the feature posts sticky?

And then arrange video posts below. So the blogroll doesn’t just have all posts in chronological order?

Thanks

Thanks

MAybe a better way to ask is: Can I have each row of posts on the blogroll one specific category, instead of all posts being in chronological order. So row one is news, row two is features, row three is galleries etc?

My site is nearly ready to be promoted, I just need these last few questions answered thanks.

Hi, it is possible to do that but you will need to do some coding. If you have some skills with php you can take the existing query as example and modify it to suit your needs.

I’m sorry to tell you that there is no easy way to do what you’re asking for.

Regards, Luis.

Hi,

Is there a way I can move the header add on my website to the far right?

At the moment it is too close to the website logo on the left.

URL is www.pittalkasia.com and the ad is the AMD image.

Thanks

Can you please specify what you don’t understand? This is a very basic html thing. Just compare what you had with the modified code I provided to you and change it.

Regards, Luis.

I don’t understand your comment: “Go where you have included the image and check this: http://take.ms/JZcYb"

I am using the ad widget in the Ad Sidebar 1. It only allows image URL. Screenshot: http://imgur.com/a/5Yi7X

So I don;t know where I’m suppose to put the code you mentioned: Ad

Hi, you didn’t tell me that.

In this case add this to your custom css: .sidebar-ad-a .AdWidget_ImageWidget img { float: right; }

That will float it to the right.

Regards, Luis.

Hi,

Looking at the Events widget on my website there seems to be a bullet point top left of the image, and a comma before the date as you can see on this screenshot: http://imgur.com/a/lcvf3

How can I remove this bullet point and comma, and decrease the gap between top of the image and widget title?

Thanks

It’s the event calendar that came with this theme. The CSS is not working.

I added this to the Custom CSS section but it’s not working.

Try this one: #upcoming-events-b796cb05cdbcca9fd4c5173ea5a92714 { list-style:none; }

Hi,

Is there a way I can customise a specific widget list different to the other widgets? I would like to change the style of the widget titled “Latest Features” as seen here: http://pittalkasia.com/author-widget-test. Changes to:
  • Authors name style
  • Removal of bullet point at post title
  • background colours/opacity of each author

Thanks

Go to “Theme Panel -> Style -> Custom”, this is where you put your own theme customisation rules.

I know where to paste the custom CSS code, but I don’t know what the code is. Support usually gives me the code. But don;t worry I got someone else to do it.

Hi, please understand that our support service focuses on fixing bugs and make improvements for better compatibility with our themes and plugins, we never mention that all the customisation will be driven by the support team.

Please see: http://take.ms/nEvQG

We try to help everyone as much as we can, and in your case I personally logged in your site and set it up the theme for you like the demo but keeping your existing data without any extra charge (even knowing that we have a special service for these kind of tasks http://strictthemes.com/services/), so please be nice to us and we’ll do the same to you.

Regards, Luis.

Hi,

What about android and ios icons?

If you can’t add them what library did you use in the theme?

Hi, do you mean favicon and so? You have plenty of plugins to do that ( e.g.: https://wordpress.org/plugins/favicon-by-realfavicongenerator/ ) in case you don’t want to write code.

Regards, Luis.

Thanks for responding

No. i mean icons like social and other icons(icon-Facebook, icon-RSS etc) but for android and ios.

Hi, if you go to Theme Panel->Layout->Header, at the bottom you will find the instructions to add your own icons. http://take.ms/bu9i1

Hello,

I’m having major problems with Custom CSS.

The first piece of code to change the style of a widget I pasted into Theme Panel>Style>Custom, it worked. But when I tried to make changes to the colour code and refresh, the changes didn’t appear.

I deleted the code from Theme Panel Custom and pasted it into the Additional CSS in Customize. But when I click Save & Publish it doesn’t save.

So I pasted back into the Theme Panel Custom, and the code doesn;t work at all now.

I have cleared browser cache and it still doesn’t work. How can this be fixed?

This is the code I am pasting: .sidebar > .widget_authors > ul > li > a { color: white; }

/* Style the author’s posts. / .sidebar .widget_authors ul li ul li a { / Change the color. / color: white; }

/ Remove bullet points from author’s posts. / .sidebar .widget_authors ul li ul { list-style-type: none; }

/ Alternative colors for each author. / .sidebar > .widget_authors > ul > li:nth-child(odd) { background-color: #ff0000; } .sidebar > .widget_authors > ul > li:nth-child(even) { background-color: #ff5252; }

/ Move the text to the right. */ .sidebar > .widget_authors > ul > li { height: 120px; padding: 10px 10px 0 0; } .sidebar .widget_authors ul li a img { float: left; width: 106px; margin: 0 10px; height: 106px; }

Thanks

Hi, I can see that your custom css is being applied: http://take.ms/fsbzs , first of all you have to identify which part is not working, then we can focus on it.

Regards, Luis.

hey guys, I am trying to set my page just like the shockmag that you show on the live demos, but every time I set the Front Page template at the “Page Attributes” it keeps showing post that i have already delete in the blogroll. But when I set any other template for the page attributes it works fine. What can I do?

Hi, try to create a new page, name it and set the template like this: http://take.ms/qi7gP the go to Settings->Reading and set your newly created page as the fron page: http://take.ms/H6IWi

Greetings I have problem with performing SLIDER ON FRONTPAGE AS ON LIVE PREVIEW Sticky posts already followed the steps that mention in the link http://strictthemes.com/shockmag/how-to-set-a-slider-on-frontpage-as-on-live-preview/

Hi, I’m sorry to inform you that your support period has expired but you can extend it by following the link on the top right of this page to keep getting assistance. (http://take.ms/Tr5gu)

What are you getting then? Can you please provide more details? It’s very difficult for us to tell you what to do if you don’t tell us what you get or what you did.

Video posts not working.

Hi, I’m trying to add a video post but when I past the YouTube code into the Embedded Video section and preview the post, all I see is the code. I’ve tried pasting the YT share code, full URL and embed code. Neither works. URL sample: http://pittalkasia.com/lester-tests-porsche-for-japanese-super-gt-series/

Also is there a way to move the video underneath the ad banner?

Thanks, Ben

I just noticed that when I paste the Youtube embed code into the field http://imgur.com/a/j8jk1 after I update the page, the code changes http://imgur.com/a/KnzGr This is why the URL shows and not the video. Even when I paste the embed code into the post itself, after updating the page it reverts to showing just the URL link. Is this a bug?

Hi, the only thing I can think about is that there is a plugin filtering the text when you save it.

To find it out try to deactivate all the plugins but the required for the theme and perform the operation again.

Let me know the result. If it works then start activating the plugins one by one and changing the embed code between activations to see which one is conflicting.

Regards, Luis.

Ok thanks I will try that.

I just changed the categories for the sticky posts slider on sportsmag, and now the slider is not working.

I’ve double checked that the category slugs have been typed correctly and I’ve cleared browser cache.

How do I fix this?

URL: www.pittalkasia.com

Thanks

Hi, have you tried to put them back as before? Does it work? Do you have enough sticky posts to fill the slider?

Please let me know.

Regards, Luis.

Hi, I have a really big problem now.

I started to deactivate plugins to determine another problem, and I also updated 13 plugins. After updating the plugins I noticed that when I try and post a new post, the Format options have disappeared http://imgur.com/a/Za5is and the slug automatically says “test-gallery”, even though the show format options is checked in the screen options http://imgur.com/a/FqzhQ. Also the option to make the post a sticky has disappeared http://imgur.com/a/qmHsb. I reactivated the plugins I previously deactivated. But nothing has changed. Also when I do post and check hide breadcrumbs, enable zoom, and change author and publish- when I revisit that post to edit, it has reverted to previous set-up. Before I go and get confused with deactivating plugins, is there anything you can see that is not right?

Thanks,

Ok so unclicked the format options box in Screen Options, and now the format options and sticky option appears- Strange. But now the field to add a sub-heading has disappeared and I don;t know how to get it back.

And the options for bread crumbs, zoom enable have disappeared as well.

Be sure to not have ST Kit deactivated, it’s the one in charge to showing these options.

Let me know.

Hi Strict Themes, Beautiful theme, love the features! I’m trying to include a section on the static homepage that also displays the most recent WooCommerce products, below the post excerpt boxes. I know I can add it as a widget in the sidebar, but I want to display it as part of the main page content. I checked out the documentation on widgets and shortcodes extensively but I couldn’t find anything that exactly solves this issue. Is there any way to do this?

Hi, I don’t quite understand where are you trying to add it but I can tell you that the only widgetized areas shown on the frontpage are the Ad Spots, Search and Footer ones. The other way is to add a Sidebar and place it there, but you know that.

The hard way would be to create another sidebar a place it wherever you want it but that would require some coding skills.

Regards, Luis.

Hi there, I built one site with your Shockmag Theme and it is impossible for me to setup the slider with the sticky posts.

I have followed all the steps in the documentation page and I just see the arrows on side but there is no posts, and all is black. I would like to have the slider like in here: http://strictthemes.com/shockmag-3/

You can check in http://theplaylist.es/

This is very important as this was one of the main reasons to buy the theme. Let me know if you need our purchase code and I will send you.

Hi, did you manage to fix it? because I can see the slider https://cl.ly/0j3P0e0m1y43

Regards, Luis.

Hi Strict Themes, I am trying to exclude posts with certain categories from displaying on the front page. I notice that someone else had the same question some time ago: https://themeforest.net/comments/11535177. How do I do this, please?
