How to set the description that shows up in Google Search?

I’ve created the site titled and tagline under general settings, but how do I set the page description that Google pulls? Right now, it looks like Google is pulling from an older post, but since the posts will regularly be updated, I want more of a static description.

Thanks – AB

Hey AB… I recommend using a SEO plugin for this.

Hi, Love your theme. I have a problem with the JW player. I think I didn’t upload it correctly to the theme before installing on Wordpress. Can you advise what I can do in this situation? Many Thanks for your assistance! Carla

Hey Carla, thanks for purchasing Soundboard. I’m glad you like it :)

You can still upload the JW Player files to your server with a FTP uploader (like FileZilla for example).

Or if you don’t want to do that, you can install a new copy of Soundboard with the JW player files included. If you remove Soundboard from your WordPress installation and upload a new copy, none of your content and Theme settings will get lost.


Hi red_sun, love the theme but have a small problem.

The videos (both on the homepage and videos page) are opening in a separate tab via YouTube as well as the internal player.

I’d like the videos to only open using the internal player if possible?


Thanks, should have thought of that! Just to let you know, it was the ‘Open Links in New Window’ plugin. Useful plugin but by no means essential.

One more thing. How do I disable both the rollovers and the lightbox on all images across the site?


You mean only the ones in posts and pages, or also the gallery?

For images that you insert into posts and pages you can find the code in includes/functions/theme_functions line 4 – 14 and js/scripts.js 53 – 61. Simply “comment out” those lines.

Awesome, thanks.

Hi there!

I installed sounboard on my own website to test it for a client, and it’s working perfectly!! See

However, I just tried to install it on the client’s website (, and whenever I try and create a slider and click “preview” (after having saved) it comes up with “Page Not Found” and also won’t embed the slider into the homepage as required. I have no idea what’s going on as I’m not a wordpress expert at all!

I’m wondering if it has anything to do with permalinks – a long shot but just wondered because on my own site the slider permalink is whereas on the client’s site it’s showing up as ?which seems weird as there’s no such folder as “slider”. It won’t let me edit this.

Any help very much appreciated as I’m trying to set this up asap!!

Thanks so much :)


Apologies – please ignore my previous post. I’ve fixed it :) Thank you for a lovely and very useful theme!! L x

Great.. I’m glad you enjoy working with Soundboard, L :)

Hello Red_sun. Amazing theme !

I’ve purchased it few month ago. Now, I want to update it, but I don’t know how… Could you help me ?

Hey Kooby! Thanks for purchasing Soundboard.. I’m glad you like it :)

Simply log into ThemeForest and go to the “Downloads” tab. Here you will find all the files you’ve purchased. If you re-download Soundboard, you will automatically get the newest version. Then deactivate and delete your old Soundboard installation from your WordPress installation and upload the new one.

Hi Amazing theme…

I have a question: I would like to have a background that changes (about 5 images, switching every 2 seconds)

How can i do this?


Hey erikland.. you could use a plugin for this. I’ve tested this plugin with Soundboard for example:

Thanks! Solved! :D

Hi! Me again…

Another question… Is it possible to add diffrend slider to another page? How can i do this?

Thank you :)

erikland… with Soundboard you can only display 1 slider.

Hello! Please help! I downloaded the file to my themes but when I go to start customizing nothing changes. I know Im uploading the theme file itself and I’m having a hard time understanding why when i make changes, the website stays the same. My website is This is the way it looks when I upload the theme and the same way it looks when I add something. Nothing changes…and it adds nothing. Widgets don’t show up or nothing. Please help…to steer me in the right direction! Thank you!

Hey angiemusic.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

Please follow all the instructions in the documentation step by step on how to set up the menu and pages..

I have setup the template but when I go to my site URL the home page is not default. But if I hit “Home” button on the menu…it displays.

Hey DaJuggernaut8.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

Please follow all the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the Homepage” (especially step 6!):

Hey red_sun, is it possible to use a font that is neither one of the predefined fonts or on google web fonts? We need to use a font called Gotham Rounded.

Any solution would be much appreciated!


You could use @font-face for that. Google “font-face” and you will find lots of instructions/tutorials on how use it.

Hello red_sun! I love this theme and i buy it soon! I have a question: is it possible change the format date in home page news from “X days ago” with date of post (for ex. 22 Feb 2013)? I tried with Bugzilla but when i change the function appears “22 FebruaryUTCb 2013”, why?? Tnx for support and good work!

Hey PogoZ!

In the Theme Options Panel there is an option to display the actual date instead of “time ago”...


tnx a lot! next week i will buy this theme! Have a good w/e!

Help! Theme: Soundboard Q: How do I change the duration/speed of the slider?

Hey bodybarn!

You can change the slider speed in the file js/scripts.js, line 67 and 68.


Hi, love your theme. I have a problem with slider. When i try to upload a image to my created slider, nothing happens. i click at “sellect file” button and… nothing. Do you know what could be wrong? Tnx.

I just deactivated all plugins, but nothing changes

The same problem happens when I try to send an image to the gallery.

Please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me a link and login info please. Thanks!

Such a great theme, has made my life so much easier. I’m stuck on something. How do I reverse the order of past tour dates to have the most current on top. Also, is there a way to have these past tour dates in a scrolling box (there are hundreds)? Thanks!

That is great to hear, loudestmouth :)

In the file template-tourdates.php, line 164, change
'order' => 'ASC',
'order' => 'DESC',


Disregard the scrolling box question. I set my background to fixed and it looks awesome, on the site in general

Hi Ms Perfect Support!

is there a simple way to get the slider-formatting on all pages? I’d like to make the slider the header…

If you’ve posted this before, I’m just to blind to find…

Cheers and thank you! Tom | SchlagerMetall


Tom… in order to display the slider on every page you will have to modify 2 files (line numbers can deviate depending on Soundboard version):

In header.php, line 115

if( of_get_option('gg_slider') != "" && is_page_template('template-home.php') ) { 


if( of_get_option('gg_slider') != ""  ) {

In functions.php, remove line 288:

if (is_page_template('template-home.php') )

(be VERY careful modifying functions.php, if something goes wrong, the theme will break!)


The part one, I’ve found already! the functions I will go to now. I guessed about the essential role of functions, therefore I kept my fingers off it before contacting you. Thanks for the really fast help. This is brilliant! Grüaß Eich from Bonn! Tom

Hello… I just downloaded and tryed installing the soundboard theme and I get this error right off the hop..

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

any ideas?

Hi! Please make sure you are not uploading the whole zip file that you’ve downloaded from Themeforest (including dummy content, license, psd files, readme …) but only the file.


that was it… thanks pal!
