Hi, great theme you made. I’m installing it with pleasure!!

Two questions: - Is there a way to randomize background images or change the background image on certain pages? - Is there a way to add a page image above the content block? or add a less high slider such as on home?

bye Wilbert

Thanks for your reply. I will get into that. First start making a child theme. ps any updates comming for WooCommerce 2.0? I got the message: “Your theme does not declare WooCommerce support – if you encounter layout issues please read our integration guide or choose a WooCommerce theme :)” after updating.

ps 2 Great background plugin!!! Works perfect!


I will upload an update for WooCommerce 2.0 tonight. Soundboard works 98% with WooCommerce 2.0 already. Just added some minor CSS fixes.

Hi! First, i love your theme. It’s by far the best made theme i ever had to work with. Congrats :)

My Question: Is it possible to open slider links in a new window?

Thanks in advance, Amir

U rock! Thx!

Ah, hab grad gesehen dass du aus Österreich bist. Geil ;)

Hi, still going strong on this theme and very happy…

i’m having trouble getting the soundcloud to integrate. all i can get is the picture of the cloud, which the user has to click to get the player to come up. Is that configuration of soundcloud or a limitation of soundboard?

I tried the soundcloud plugin but it kept giving a fatal error and i dont have anything else installed that would cause that (i dont think) Fatal error: Cannot redeclare soundcloud_shortcode() (previously declared in /home2/sensatio/public_html/wp-content/themes/soundboard/includes/shortcodes/shortcode-soundcloud.php:39) in /home2/sensatio/public_html/wp-content/plugins/soundcloud-shortcode/soundcloud-shortcode.php on line 103

Hey throbins.. glad you still enjoy working with Soundboard!

SoundCloud is already included in the theme. Deactivate the SoundCloud plugin and the error will disappear.

Click on the Soundcloud icon to open up the SoundCloud player in a lightbox. If you want to display the player right on the page instead of a lightbox, there is an option for this in Theme Options > General > Custom CSS.


thanks! i have very little clue about coding… tried using the tags on here but they were just getting deleted. is that because they arent in PHP? do you know exactly what i would paste into the custom css box?

Ps incredible support level and response times. really happy :)

I’m sorry.. I didn’t mean Custom CSS.. (where was my mind? ;) ) There is an option at the bottom of Theme Options > General:

“On Album page, display SoundCloud and JW Player within content instead of within a lightbox.”

Hi Gerda, With the latest update, the links on my navigation bar are gone. All I see is a plain grey bar, but no links. Any idea why this might be happening?



Go to Appearance > Menus and check if in the top left area the menu you’ve created is selected under SOUNDBOARD Main Menu…

Hi there, I was hoping to use this theme for a record company, however I will need to have a separate blog, photo album, front page and show page for each artist. Is there a way to use this theme for multiple artists under one label? Can I edit the nav menu up top to link to each artists’ page (there are 4 artists). thanks!

Hey goldylamont! You can edit the nav menu and add whatever nav item you want. But in order to have multiple tour dates and gallery pages, it would require some theme customization (duplicating and editing some theme files). You can not have multiple blogs, but you can have a different blog category for each artist and then display blog posts of a certain category only for each artist….

Hi Gerda, For some reason my store is showing both your arrows and the woo commerce arrows for increasing the amount of a selected item in the store. You can see it here, next to the number of vinyls you select. There are your plus and minus and there is the woo commerce up and down arrow, which both do the same thing but look very confusing.

Oh you are right. For some reason those extra arrows do not display in Firefox. I will try to find out what is causing this and fix this in the next update. Until then, here is a temporary code that you can enter into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS to fix this issue:

.quantity input.qty, 
#content .quantity input.qty {

Thank you again! Awesome support!

Hello! Your theme’s fantastic – thanks! One question: I’m trying to build my store with woocommerce and the “add to cart” button on the product page doesn’t seem to be working. I’ve tried to find a solution through woocommerce but they seem to say it’s probably an incompatibility with the theme? Wondering if you have any ideas… Also, from searching around the web, people make mention of an AJAX feature that should maybe be turned off, but I can’t find it. Here’s a link to the page I’m having trouble with. Thanks in advance for any help!

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

I just released an update for Soundboard (version 3.02) which includes some CSS styles to work with WooCommerce 2.0. This update should fix your problem.


First and foremost I would like to say it’s definitely a pleasure purchasing a theme such as this from you guys. The theme is amazing and what you can do with it is great as well. I do have a couple questions though to ask.

1. Is their a way i can put the search box in the menu bar above? And is their a way I can put my social icons in the empty white space between the menu and slider? 2. In “theme options” I tried to upload instagram icon but it won’t let. It asks to retrieve the link to instagram icon but i can’t find where to retrieve it. 3. When I post something is thier a way to remove the date for the post because i do not want the date to show. Reason being certian posts for certain pages wouldn’t need dates so can I do something about that?

Thank you!

The slider (including the 20px transparent border) has a size of 980px x 400px. Do you want the banner additionally to the logo or instead of it?

@red_sun I would like the banner without the logo

But on every page, yes? Well then you can simply upload that banner in Theme Options > General > Logo … and it will display instead of the logo. And then enter the follwing code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS, in order to change the width from 940 to 980:

#logo {
    width: 980px;

Hi, I have just purchased your Theme, and I really love it. There are some problems because I am from Taiwan, and some parts are not suitable for Chinese appearance.

I have some questions: 1.I would like to use your font (Just Another Hand), but when there is Chinese, I would like to use (“?“). How should I set this?

2.I currently plan to use the Vbulletin system for my forum, how do I import the theme with the forum system?

Thanks for you time!

Hey dj_frc.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

1. I’m not entirely sure what you mean, dj_frc. What do you mean by (“?“)?

2. Unfortunately I have no experience at all with Vbulletin, so I’m afraid I can’t give you any advice here…


Hi, thanks for the quick reply, the question mark should be a chinese font(but I think it can’t show chinese on this site)

Also, there is a class(tnail) in my post which shows a small picture, do you know how to close it? You can find it between the Title and the content.

Thanks for all you help!

Sorry for my poor English…

You mean how to remove the thumnail with the class .tnail? If yes, then put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.tnail {display: none;}

Hi, another question, when clicking “buy Tickets”, how do I set it to open in a new tab?


in the file template-tourdates.php, line 114 (for tour dates widget, file includes/widgets/widget-tourdates.php, line 126), change

<a href="<?php echo $url; ?>" class="button2 tour-button"><?php if ($button_text) { echo $button_text; } else { _e('Buy Tickets', 'gxg_textdomain'); } ?></a> 


<a href="<?php echo $url; ?>" target="_blank" class="button2 tour-button"><?php if ($button_text) { echo $button_text; } else { _e('Buy Tickets', 'gxg_textdomain'); } ?></a>   

Thanks red_sun!!!

hi, we’d like to extend the functionality of the Tour Dates page, for example having a flyer (image) and custom link (url) additionally for each event. how can we add further fields to this? thanks in advance.

That would require quite a bit of customization work! (in the file includes/metaboxes/config_meta_boxes add new custom field within the TOURDATES section, and then modify template_tourdates.php to show the image/button)

hi, thanks for the reply, managed to do this, and it works great. found the config_meta_boxes file myself after looking up some stuff on custom fields.


Thank you for this great theme. I has worked really well for the site we have just built. I have only got one problem: I have filled in the email field for the contact form and published but the emails are not coming through. I’ve tried a couple of different email addresses. Is there a possibility that permissions on the server/files might be the problem? (I had a problem with permissions when I first started building the site). The site is at

Hey lcarruthers.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! I’m glad you like it :)

If your contact page seems to work on the front-end but doesn’t deliver mail (also check your junk mail folder!), be sure that your server supports the sendmail protocol (ask your server admin if this is set up). If you can’t activate it, I would recommend to get a plugin for your contact page (like “contact form 7” for example)

Hello, thanks for replying. I realise that the mails were going into the spam folder. Thank you!


Great theme of course! I recently updated both the Soundboard theme and WP (from 3.4.1 to 3.5.1). All went well, but my JWPlayer doesn’t seem to be working properly. None of the audio plays on the album pages or with shortcodes and some of the videos play while other don’t.

Some things I tried . . . 1. Tried user both ver. 5 and 6 of JW Player 2. Removed the JW Player files and copied new files from the theme folder (under audio) 3. Double checked my shortcodes for spaces (as you show in your documenation).

What am I overlooking?

Thanks for your help, LC

Hey LC.. send me link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page, please. Thanks!

Thanks . . . I just sent you the info. Hope you can help.

Hello. Great theme. Only problem I’m having is that the thumbnails for my videos are not showing up, just the play button. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Oh, nevermind, my fault. Thanks!

Hi there.

I have managed to upload the zip file of the soundboard theme but then when I click “activate” it just goes to a blank white screen and says this at the top:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Mobile_Detect in /websites/123reg/LinuxPackage21/gr/ee/ni/ on line 16

The webpage is totally down when this shows and the wordpress log in page is the same, a white screen and shows the above message too.

Only way I can fix it is to delete the theme through the Firefox FTP again then I can log in. Tried it a few times and keeps coming up with that message.

Do you know what the problem could be?

Many Thanks.


Hey David.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

That sounds like you activated a plugin that is using the “mobile detect” function. That function is already included in Soundboard and can not redecleared twice. That’s why you are getting the error.

Deactivate all your plugins before activating Soundboard. Then you can activate one plugin by one to see which one is causing the problem.


Brilliant, worked a treat.

Thanks very much, theme looks great..can’t wait to get started! :-)

Hey-hey, I have another question. In your demo you were able to remove the product name above the products. How can I do that? On my page the product name is shown above the product and above the description. I’d like to be able to have it above the description only just like in your demo. This is also causing the name of my first product to be shown above the title, ALL PRODUCTS. This is the page

Thanks for your help. This theme is awesome!

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

Right.. on the demo page I am still using the old WooCommerce plugin (before 2.0) I will release an update soon, so that the title in WC 2.0 will only display once. Until then, here is a code that you can put into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.woocommerce h1.pagetitle {
    display: none;


Thanks! You’re the best!

The caption on the slides isn’t allowing an apostrophe and the grammar police aren’t happy with me lol. What would be the fix for this?

I released version 3.02 about 5 days ago, which includes a fix for this issue ;)

Great theme! Its working better than expected. Thank you very much. Anyways, im having trouble adding sidebars to the main page, they wont update, any suggestions? I was also wondering is there a way to add the twitter and video sidebar widget to other pages like audio, gallery, etc. Thanks!
