Great theme! Love all the functionality and features!

I have a quick question. I was able to take off the “Comments:” and “Share:” in the Single Post pages…..but I can’t seem to take it off the actual Blog page. Can you help?


Hey qabemis.. great to hear that you are happy with your purchase :)

Simply make the same changes that you’ve made to single.php also to loop.php.


Hi Red Sun!

One final question – With the the social media links in the footer i.e. Soundcloud, Youtube. Once i’ve added the corresponding url in the theme options section. When I then click on the footer button it add’s the website URL in front of the Youtube/Soundcloud URL i.e.

Any way to fix this?

Thanks in advance

Hey… please make sure you are entering the full URL including http:// at the beginning!

Oh and also my Sounboard Twitter doesn’t seem to be working? Once I put the twitter username (I’ve tried both the full URL and also just the twitter name) but it doesn’t seem to show any of the latest tweets?

Well yeah.. that would be possible I guess. You pretty much would have to copy the code of the div #social in the file footer.php and paste it into the file header.php and then adjust the CSS…

Ok great thanks!

Sorry for all the questions, im building a friends site and he wanted to have the social icons up the top. I personally much prefer them at the footer..

How would I go about editing the CSS for the social icons?

Thanks for all of your help so far :)

I recommend putting any new CSS code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS, so that you can later upgrade Soundboard without problem.

Hello! How can I change size of the widget title on the main side bar as it is too small. Thank you very much.

This is the photo about the thing I am talking about:

Hey andreicek! Simply put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

#sidebar h3.widgettitle {
    font-size: 20px;

Change the font size to whatever you like.


Me again and how can I translate the theme to my native language?

Please use the included file default.po for that. Here’s link that might help you:

Red Sun!

How would you make the main page be 2 column instead of 3 columns?

Below the slider, I need it the site contents and news to be on the left, and widgets available on the right. More of like a 2/3rds structure.

Maybe just combine the 1st and 2nd columns but leave the third how it is? I am sure it is a easy fix somewhere in the homepage php.

I appreciate your help!

Hey nicholas!

If you don’t put any widgets into the left widget area on the home page, that column will not be displayed at all. Now you only have to give the news column a different with. Add the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

#home-news {
    margin: 0 20px;
    width: 680px;

would there be a reason why I couldn’t put more than one “tabs” section on a page? My tabs from my first section are showing up in the second.

Hey covcomm! Are you talking about shortcode tabs? Can you please send me a link via the user contact form on my profile page so that I can check it out?

I am trying to have a “more info” button for each show that links to a post/page where I can put in additional show details (flyer & age restrictions, write-up, etc). Right now, the only option is ticket link that would take users to a 3rd party site.

I know this is advance customization and I am willing to pay for the help if you or anyone else can assist.

Alternatively, I can just create each post for each show and use the post permalink in the Ticket URL field and change the button name… but would be cumbersome and would have to omit that category from appearing on the front page news section and blog page.

Thanks in advance. I’ve been working with musicians/artists sites for years and this is the best theme I’ve ever worked with for their needs. Big thanks for the work you put into it thus far. Amazing.

Hey dayshabass.. that is great to hear that you enjoy working with Soundbaord that much! I have put a lot of effort into building this theme and I’m glad it pays off now by having so many satisfied customers…

Please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and we can talk about your customization request…

Cheers, Gerda

This theme looks great and most posts are very positive. Quick Q- can the backgrounds rotate or are they fixed until a manual change is done. Can a a rotating background be added easily?

Hey rezten!

With Soundboard you can only upload 1 background image.

But I know that one of my customers was using the “Background Manager” plugin to create a fullscreen slideshow behind the content and it seemed to work pretty well. Here is the link to the plugin:


I just want to say, I’ve purchased many themes through themeforest and this may be my favorite.

TOP work, ease of setup, design, and UX. WELL DONE! : )


Andymass.. thank’s a lot for taking the time to leave such a nice feedback :) I’m glad you enjoy working with Soundboard!



I’m trying to add new social buttons to theme ate the bottom though ‘theme options’ -> ‘social’

I’m trying to add mixcloud and vimeo as additional profiles, i’ve uploaded logo’s to my photbucket account and used the link for that and then the url to the mixcloud or vimeo page but nothing appears on the site once saved.

Hey shutthefrontdoor.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

You don’t need to upload the icons to photobucket. You can simply upload them with the the WordPress Media uploader (Media > Add New). Once you have uploaded the icon with WordPress click “Edit Media” and you can see the full URL of the file. Most important is that you enter the URL including http:// at the beginning. Otherwise the link is not going to work.

Hope that helps!

Just wondering if there are any compatibility issues with wordpress 3.5 before I upgrade?


The only thing I have noticed is that in my Theme Options Panel the “Upload” button’s height is off (WP 3.5 has a new button shape). The button still works though. And I will fix this styling issue in my next update. So yeah, you can update to WP 3.5.

Thanks for the reply. Another question:

Is it possible to make the link from a shortcode button open in another window/tab?


In the file includes/shortcodes/shortcode.php, in the section “Buttons”, replace

 return '<a class="buttonS" href="'.$link.'"><span>' . do_shortcode($content) . '</span></a>';


return '<a class="buttonS" target="_blank" href="'.$link.'"><span>' . do_shortcode($content) . '</span></a>';

How do you add the slider. I’ve tried everything… Help!!

Hey rasputin281.. please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me a link and login info so that I can check it out. Thanks!

Thanks re_sun for you help with my gallery issue! I’m having a problem with making the audio files show up in the website, now. I’ve read all the documentation I can find but I can’t figure out how to make it work properly. Do I need to embed the player?

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

Hey.. please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me the login info so that I can check it out. Thanks!

Hi, how change the months’s language of the widget “tour dates”? Thanks.

Hey giacomotriglia! You can use the included .po file for the translations. Here is a good blog post on how to translate a WP theme:

how do i add a logo with a link to a website on the bottom of the page. I want it just the same as the facebook or youtube link on the bottom…

chotito… if you are using at least version 1.04 of Soundboard (current version is 3.0) then you can add additional (social) icons within the Theme Options Panel.

Here is the Changelog for Soundboard:

Hi Red Sun,

I have 2 quick questions on this theme:

1. I currently have the newsfeed showing on the homepage of my site ( The text of my most recent announcement has a hyperlink with the text “Click here”... but it seems like all hyperlinks within the body of the post are not working on this homepage news display? So the user cannot click the buttons, even tho there is html?

Is there a simple way to make this link clickable? Or another option would be a page break (...more), so “Click here” is never seen. But the page break function isn’t working either. If you can help me get one of these working it would solve the issue. Thanks.

2. How do I remove the gray rollover effect for the events display? (

Thank you for the help!! I’ll be rating 5 stars!! : )

Hey Andymass!

The home template displays the excerpt right now, which displays the text without links or text styling. You can change this as follows:

In the file template-home.php, line 82 and 90 , replace

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>


<<?php global $more; $more = 0; ?>
<?php the_content(' read more…'); ?>

(you can also change the text “read more…” to something else) And then you could manually insert the “read more” link with the help of the insert more tag:

That way the links would work again.

2. You mean the hover effect on the table? Add this code to Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

table tr:hover td {
        background: transparent;

Thanks for rating Soundboard! I really appreciate it :)


Hi Red Sun, addicted to this theme and been setting it up all night, great work! I have two questions: 1. how can i eliminate the space between the logo banner and the menu bar? I want the banner and the menu bar to touch. 2. how can i reduce the line leading (space between the lines of text) in the titles of each section (specifically the widgets, when there’s a long title, there’s a large space between the two lines of text). 3. how can i reduce the space between the side bar widgets? they seem quite far away now.

I’ve added your custom CSS i found in themeforest comments to reduce the text size of the titles, so this line leading and space seems quite large. Here is my site. Thanks again.

Hey waxsociety.. that’s great to hear that you enjoy working with Soundboard so much :)

1. Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

#topnavi {
    margin-top: -6px;

2. Change line height of widget titles:

h3.widgettitle {
    line-height: 20px;

3. Reduce top margin of widgets:

.widget {
    margin-top: 20px;
.home-content .widget-area, #sidebar {
    margin-top: -10px;


Hi Red Sun!

I’m having trouble adding slides. When I select a file to upload I get the loading icon indefinitely. I’ve tried adding slides to existing sliders, and creating a New Slider and the same thing happens in both instances. I don’t seem to be having any trouble with uploading media in any other part of the site.

Thanks for your help!

Hey Amanda… just responded to your email!

Hi Red Sun, Thank you for your last reply, really appreciate the fast support and your solutions worked. A couple more questions I have

1. I’m using woocommerce with the right sidebar widget “cart”. When I click “add item” on an item in the store (center pane), the cart sidebar widget doesn’t update in quantity until I refresh the page. Is this a woocommerce bug or an issue with your theme?
br<> 2. When I view the full site on a mobile device (I’m running an iPhone 5, latest iOS), it takes one of the slider photos and repeats it in background, how can this be removed? Here’s a screenshot of what I’m talking about

Thank you once again, I’ll be sure to give you highest rating on this, love it!

Hey Wax Society…

1. Soundboard provides the styling for the WooCommerce plugin only…

2. I just checked your site on a iPhone 3G today and couldn’t see any problems with the slider images. I think I will have the chance to check on an iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 tomorrow..

Thanks for rating Soundboard.. I really appreciate it!
