Hi I have a small menu bar on the site. I was wondering if it would be possible to have the logo and menu bar on the same line and also, how I would be able to go about doing this?

Thanks in advance.

In the file header.php, remove

<div class="clear"> </div>
in line 101.

Then add the following code to Theme Options > General > Custom CSS (change width of logo and navi to whatever you like):

#logo {
    display: inline-block;
    margin: 30px 0 0;
    width: 577px;

#topnavi {
    display: inline-block;
    margin: 30px 0 0;
    width: 400px;

Thanks. The only problem I have now, is my logo is not displaying. I have tried uploading on the theme panel but that doesn’t work. What code do I need to add to the header to be able to display the logo?

Sorry for being a pain.

Can you send me a link please so that I can take a look why the logo is not displaying?

In general, I am very happy with this template. I have looked at others from time to time, but keep coming back to this one to suit my current purpose.

A few questions:

1. Are you planning on updating the theme so we will be notified of updates to the theme on the Wordpress Dashboard? This would save having to use an FTP client to update the theme manually, and also notify us quickly of any updates/improvements you have made to the template.

2. Are you planning on making a ‘responsive’ version of the template that will work properly on mobile devices? – currently only about 20% of website visits I have are coming from desktop PCs. I would be happy to pay for an upgrade that would allow me to upgrade my site without having to re-enter/recode everything! :-)

3. WordPress added Instagram image embedding last year ( I can embed an Instagram image with the direct URL OK. When I want to embed an Instagram image along with optional parameters such as width i.e. [instagram url=LINK /width=150], WordPress only shows the text and not the image. Can you please help me with this? This works properly on other Wordpress sites I admin with different themes on the same hosting provider.

Hey kennh! Great to hear that you are happy with Soundboard!

1. I will actually take a look at this…

2. I keep wanting to make a responsive version, since this is a common request. But in order to make Soundboard responsive, I would have to completely rebuild the layout, change all thumbnail sizes, include another version of the slider.. and overall this would require countless hours of work and would be really hard to do. So I don’t think there will be a responsive version of Soundboard anytime soon…

3. This works with only and not, no?

H there, how can I change the headline and the date in the page news (not news in home section). I want to decrease the headline.



Is it possible to add captions to the galleries?

What version were you using? I’ll test this on my local testing environment.

Version 1.02

I just tested this.

I added js/prettyPhoto.js and single-gallery.php and got the fatal error. Then I removed the complete folder metaboxes and all files within and replaced it with the one of version 3.05, which got rid of the fatal error and everything worked as expected.

Hi! Love the theme. Any possibility of having just a soundcloud player / set directly on the music template page? The pop up seems unnecessary, not immediate, and rather distracting! I saw it on: using your theme.

Any insight as to how I can achieve this?

Thank you so much.


Hey Matt! Great to hear that you enjoy working with Soundboard :)

As of version 1.04, you have the option to display the Soundcloud player directly on the page. You can activate this option in Theme Options > General.

You can check your version number in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo.

Great! Thanks!!! Works perfectly.

How can i change the link colour in the main body of the page, not the menu bar.

Hey torpeyisgod!

Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS and change the color value to whatever you like:

h1 a:hover, h1 a:active,
h2 a:hover, h2 a:active,
h3 a:hover, h3 a:active,
h4 a:hover, h4 a:active,
h5 a:hover, h5 a:active,
h6 a:hover, h6 a:active,
#footer-widget-area a:hover,
#footer-widget-area a:active
         color: #ff4354;

loving the theme… !!

Only one question:

im using Firefox, on Win Vista and the slider is showing
very squished its only about 30px high..
what could be wrong ?

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

Can you 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 take a closer look at this problem? Thanks!

I have a customer who has purchased this item and can not insert background image

Hey Angeldavo! Please have your client log into the account that he has used to purchase Soundboard and send me a link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page, so that I can take a look at this issue. Thanks!

Hello Redsun, quick question. How can i display the tourdates full width without the sidebar?

And alsohow do i get rid of the ++ signs next to the news dates?

thx again for this awesome theme :D

You’re welcome :)

1. In the file template-tourdates.php, line 9, change grid_9 to grid_12

And in Theme Options > General > Custom CSS, add:

.tour {

2. You can remove those in the file template-home.php (starting in line 51)

I have a few questions as I’m having some trouble setting things up.

1.Firstly having integrated woocommerce, how do I select the stylesheet to match the theme?

2. I want to be able to centre the menu bar, as currently the menu items are aligned to the left. How would I do this?

3. I’m also having trouble setting up jwplayer. I can see it already is wthin the theme files however I cannot get it to work. Please help


Hey nekuro!

1. Make sure you are using the latest version of Soundboard (at least version 3.03) and follow the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the Shop (WooCommerce) Page” (very bottom of the page)

2. Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS :
.sf-menu {width: 700px;}
Change 700px to the total with of your menu items.

3. The JW player files are not included in the ThemeForest download file. You need to add them yourself. Please follow the instructions in the documentation: If the documentation doesn’t help, please send me link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a look.


Hey Gerda, I’m uploading mp3 songs albums when I send it finishes loading the post list page, and when I returned to look for the album to finish uploading the songs do not appear … happening?? Thanks for your answer!

Did you try uploading 1 song by 1? Also please make sure the mp3 file size does not exceed the maximum WordPress upload file size. You can find out about your maximum upload file size in Media > Add New.

Hey red_sun : )

Is there a quick edit I can make to either increase the length of the blog post snippets, or to just have it show the full post?



Hey Nick!

You have 2 options:

1. Increase excerpt length in functions.php, line 114:
return 30;

(it is set to 30 right now, which means 30 words. Change that to whatever you like)

2. OR display full content instead of excerpt:

In the file template-home.php, line 86 and 94 , 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:


awesome! thanks so much, best customer service ever : )

Hi, du sprichst ja auch deutsch. Meine freundin hat das template gekauft, sie kann auch gerne von ihrem account nochmal schreiben, gibt es eine möglichkeit noch mehr social icons hinzufügen, ich hab nun alle styling angaben in der style.css und in der option-css gemacht und war der meinung das es so gehen müsste …. es wird nur noch ein zusätzliches icon benötigt und das müsste doch irgendwie gehen oder?


Hallo Agy! Was für eine Soundboard Version verwendet Deine Freundin? (Du findest die Versions-Nummer in Appearance > Themes, neben dem Soundboard Logo)

Seit Version 1.04 kann man im Theme Options Panel zusätzlich social icons hochladen. Die neueste Version ist 3.05. Hier ist der Changelog:

Hi, dig the theme.

Do I have to buy JW player for this to work? Also does this support Vimeo?

Thanks c

Hey Chrishobs… thanks for your interest in Soundboard!

Using JW player is optional.

As for Audio, you can either implement the paid (commercial) or free version of JW player or use SoundCloud (free).

As for Video, again you can either use JWplayer for self hosted videos or display YouTube or Vimeo videos.



Thank you for making this great theme!

Will there ever be a feature of being able to add taxonomies support to the post types “Audio” & “Video” ?

Thanks so much! :)


Just added this to my Soundboard ToDo list.

Thank you!! Do you have an estimation for when it can be completed? and if possible give it priority over other tasks? I hate to ask so much.. but as you can see this is very important for me. I can add custom post types+taxonomies myself and then style each page type but I would have to use two plugins to do so. :O

Adding taxonomies to custom post types is just 1 line of code. But you are talking about sorting audio and video by categories, right?

I was thinking about adding videos and audio sorting “quicksand” style: ... which is definitely something that would take me quite some time to implement into Soundboard and unfortunately I don’t have time to work on this anytime soon. I’m sorry…

If all you need is making audio/video support categories and then create multiple templates that display audio or video from a certain category, I can give you the instructions on how to change the theme files. Simply send me a message via the user contact form on my profile page…

Hi red_sun

just have question i wish to integrate on my home page to a html code (it is an official player) just before the section news. you can see that on my website.. thank u very much

Hey peio64! If you are using at least version 1.04 of Soundboard, the content that you are putting into the editor of the page that is using the home template will display above the news section on the home page.

Hi, what version is SoundBoard currently at?


Hey synthdude! Current version is 3.05.

Here is the changelog:

He red sun, how can i replace the … (3 dots) for the read more excerpt into read full article and make it a link at the same time :D


Never mind, i found it but i did not like the result. Rather instead would it be possible to make the News title come up with the link color instead. I guess that should be possible in the css panel?

Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS (replace color number with the color number of your choice): a {
    color: #14b8f5;

Ah that’s great but now the rolover state is gone. How can i make the rollover color go to white instead of just a solid color ? Thx again, you are so very helpfull and patient!

Try this (replace hover color number with the color number of your choice): a:hover {
    color: #ffffff;

Hi! Another fan!:) How can I add the footer social links bar to the very top of the site please.

Also, is there a way to get the video thumbnail images to just be the actual default individual YouTube video image? So I don’t have to upload an image.

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

1) That would require a customization of the theme files and a bit of coding experience (copy the social icons code from the file footer.php and add them to header.php)

2) What Soundboard version are you using? You can check the version number in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo. As of the latest version (3.05) YouTube thumbnails display automatically if no featured image is set.

I had 3.04. I Have updated to 3.05. Thank you. You are the best!

You’re welcome!
