Hey Red Sun! Hope all is well,

is it possible to disable pretty photo on a specific page? for example, I have one photo on a page, and i would prefer if it stayed unclickable. Thanks!

Try this: when you insert the image, under “Attachment Display Settings”, select “Link to None”.

that worked – sorry, I should have tried that before asking you. thanks!

Hello, still very enthousiastic about your theme! Just a few questions: 1. I would like to change the color of the text in the slider and the background bar of that text. How do I do that? 2. Can I change the position of the text and bar to the bottom of the slider and center the text in the middle?

Thanks for your reply.

That’s great to hear, promosite :)

Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS

1. (change color values to whatever you like)

.nivo-caption p {
    background-color: #000000 !important;
    color: #AAAAAA !important;

2. Display caption at the bottom:

.nivo-caption p {
    margin-bottom: 0;
.nivo-caption {
    bottom: 0;

Centering the navigation is a bit more tricky. Each caption would need to have the same width (adjust the values):

.nivo-caption p {
     width: 400px;
    right: 270px;

Is it possible to display images in the homepage news/blog feed? Have tried using featured image etc – is there something I can edit in the theme files to allow them to display? Cheers!

Hey ts743.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! You can make the homepage display the featured images in Theme Options > Home > Preview Image for news (this option is available since Soundboard version 1.05)



What’s new in the update just released? Thank you

New version is v3.04. I improved the tour dates template (time field, more info field. Past dates are separated by year.) YouTube video preview image displays automatically if no Featured Image is set. And a few other additions and fixes. Here is the full changelog:

Hi, where can i find the changelog of the new version? Thanks

ok thanks, ¿how can i upgrade the theme?

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, just wondering, if I upload the new version, will it keep the changes I have made in the past? Also, a few questions: 1.How do I let the video page show the title of the video? 2.How do I delete the comment count on the index page? 3.How do I add a “read more” link to the posts on the index page?

Thanks a lot! Also, here’s my website, please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Hi Red_Sun! Thanks for your help. Another Q, how do you show the title of the video in the sidebar widget? Thanks!

This should work:

.gg_video_widget .details {
    bottom: 0 !important;

Thanks! Works perfectly!

Have you solved the woocommerce bug that distorts the footer for several of the pages? I updated to the latest and still have that issue rendering the site useless if woocommerce plugin is activated.

Hey Vrenna! Yeah I found a solution for that. Can you please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll send instructions…

Hello Red Sun. Trust you are cool.

Which mobile theme will you recommend for Soundboard; I bought the Wow! mySite mobile theme but getting it to work seamlessly is becoming an issue. I’ll appreciate your recommendation/solution.


Hey daintycodes… thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

I don’t have any experience with using Soundboard and a mobile theme together, so unfortunately there is nothing that I can recommend to you….

It mentions that you have specific style sheets to work with Woo Commerce. Can you instruct me how to make the theme compatible with the woocommerce plugin?

Hey eshrader! If you are using the latest version of Soundboard (v3.04), you can activate the WooCommerce stylesheets in Theme Options > General > Load WooCommerce stylesheets.

Hi there, I’d like to change the ‘tour dates’ to ‘Calendar’. I am making the website for a musician who runs online events not tours and need to reflect this on the website. Can anyone tell me how to change this? Thanks Mariska

Hey Mariska.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! Are you talking about the the title “Upcoming Dates” on the tour dates page? You can change that in the file template-tourdates.php, line 18.

thanks! Also, I’d like to be able to put a short description as well as a time alongside the date of the tour. And to change the text on the button to something else. Can you help me do this? Sorry I’m so fussy, The theme is perfect in many ways just trying to make some slight changes… Thanks

Actually, the newest version of Soundboard (version 3.04) includes all of this (time, button text).

This is how you update to the newest version:

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.

I’m trying to install JW player, but I’m not sure how to add the files to the folder while I’m working online. Do I need to add them to the installation files before I upload the theme into wordpress? Thanks Mariska

Yeah, either that or you upload the files to your server via FTP.

hello hi, ive read in your change log that there is Added: YouTube video preview image displays automatically if no Featured Image is set.

is there anyway that could be done for the widget too ??

thanks :-)

Right, I should have added that to the update. Will add this to the next one…

Copy the lines 40-46 of the file template-video.php and paste it into includes/widgets/widget-video.php, line 47.

How do i remove the padding around my logo, so it’s sits tight against the navigation bar and the login bar at the top?

Hi red_sun, sorry to be a pain.

Is there a way to use a lightbox short code in a text widget? I’m trying to get some posters to display this way :-(

Is there a way to change the order is displayed in the Tour Dates section.

i.e: Date – Venue – City / Country ?

It’s current order is Date – City / Country – Venue

Need to change it round :-)

You can change that in the file template-tourdate.php line 106/107 (upcoming dates) and 258/259 (past dates)

Hi I need to link from tour dates/ albums to the shop page for purchases and downloads. Whenever I put in the link to the product, however, it takes me to the home page not the shop page. How can I fix this? Also, I’m really struggling to get the JW player to show up on my music page. there’s a play button but the music is not loading. Also appreciate a solution to that Thanks Mariska

Please make sure you enter the full URL, including http://www. at the beginning. As for the JW player, please send me a link via the user contact form on my profile page so that I can take closer look.

Hi. I cant get links to work in posts. They work on pages but not posts. I need help please.

Did you enter the full URL, including http://www. at the beginning? If you want you can send me a link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a look.

Hi I have just purchased soundboard and am trying to install. I’ve installed everything successfully but when I try and load the dummy content, I get an error with every single element trying to be uploaded.

In the instructions it asks you to upload ” the xml file called “LemonChili dummy content (date).xml”, that you can find in the folder “dummy content”. ” however it is called soundboard dummy content 2012-06-28. Can you please advise where I am going wrong here?

Hey! Thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

...oh this is a mistake in the documentation. Please upload the “soundboard dummy content 2012-06-28”.

Thanks for taking the time to get back to me. The problem is, I tried to upload this earlier and I get the error message “Failed to import “new3”: Invalid post type” for every single one of the elements. Any idea why this is happening?

I haven’t changed the dummy content file in the update. It’s the same file since version 1.0. Hmm.. I’m not sure what that means.. Weird is, that Soundboard does not include a post type called “new 3”.

Firstly, let me thank you for creating a great theme. Now the questions:

1. On the homepage in News I really need to change the line “xx days ago” to be “ago xx days” (it doesn’t make sense in english, but I translated it into my language and it has to go like this). Can I change the order anywhere and how?

2. In the Tour Dates Widget there are dates shown only in English. Is it possible to translate the dates anywhere? I’ve already translated the stuff I needed elsewhere but when it comes to this widget I’m hopelessly stuck at english months….:(

Thank you for your reply, I really enjoy working with the theme, we just have a crappy language to translate to.:)))

They should be already in the .po file.. can you try and see if you find them with “Edit > Find” in poedit?

Found just September and December, April and May are there but only in short forms for the widget.

Now I’ve got trouble with JW Player…. Downloaded the files, uploaded them to the right folder, set up the audio page with content, activated the right version in Theme options. But the player doesn’t work. It’s just displaying the loading “prettyphoto” window and that’s all. Can you help me please?

Ok.. So open up single-tourdates.php, and in line 47, change Apr on the right side into April. And as for May, since the long and short form are the same, in line 48 you could rename May into May2 or something else, for the long form.

As for JW Player: Did you make sure the JWplayer files are in the jwplayer folder (NOT JWPlayer6 or JWPlayer5?). If yes, send me the link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a look.

Sorry, double post.

I’d like to make a couple of changes to the colour of the menu and content areas. On the theme demo they are slightly transparent and show the picture behind. But on my site they seem solid. How can I change the transparency? Also, the woocommerce shop page doesn’t have a content area at all and sits straight on top of the background. How can I make this the same as the other pages for consistency? Thanks

The WooCommerce page also requires a newer version of Soundboard. So this issue will also be fixed once you update Soundboard to version 3.04. As for the transparent color, I’ll take a look when you send me a link. Your site is in “coming soon” mode, so please send me link + login info via the user contact form on my profile page. Thanks!

P.S.: Please keep all questions in one thread. That makes it easier for me.

Hi, I love the theme! I am new to this and I am trying to upload it to wordpress. can you send me instructions to do this or perhaps a link? Thank you!

Hey Colekaye1.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! I’m glad you like it :)

Here is a link to the documentation, including the instructions on how to install Soundboard:

You can find the document also in the Theme files, once you unzip the file you’ve downloaded from ThemeForest.
