SHOP! I was wondering how to get the SHOP to be like the demo? I am all up to date with WooCommerce and your parent theme.


Is there any way to RE-ORDER the Albums, Audio and Videos?


I tried changing the dates but the order remained the same?

The newest published album / video will display first. If you want you can send me the link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a look at why changing the publishing date didn’t work for you…

I was changing album #3’s date to be an earlier then #2’s date. That didn’t work, but changing #2’s date to be later then #3’s worked. Thanks!

I uploaded two songs in the music section but I get the player

Hey Angeldavo.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

I’m not sure exactly what you mean.. Does the audio player not display properly? Did you follow all the instructions in the documentation on how to ingegrate JWplayer and how to set up the audio page?

I am using this theme version 3.0 How do i update the theme to the newest version without losing my edits.

Hello!! :) Just wondering if it is possible to include the slider below the menu on EVERY page, without using the homepage template for every page? i.e. adding it to the other templates? Thanks so much… Lizzy x

Hey Lizzy!

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') )  


Hi! That is fantastic – you’re awesome… thank you very much. I’ll definitely be trying it out :)

Hi, the template preview seems to be down.

Hey jwvb… yeah I noticed that. It’s back up now.

HI! Hope all is well! Is their any way to have more then one album displayed in the front page album widget? Over all I want to have more then one new album on the front page.

Thank you!

In the file includes/widgets/widget-audio.php, line 62, change

'posts_per_page' => 1 );


'posts_per_page' => 2 );

(if you want to display 3 albums, change number to 3, and so on…)

In order to add some spacing below each album, add the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.album-widget li {
    margin-bottom: 20px;

Thank you soooo much!

Hi! again!:s Is their any way to have the song titles on the album page link direct to the mp3 file and play it when clicked? Thanks again

No, this is not possible. But you can display the audio player directly on the page instead of in a lightbox (You can activate this option in Theme Options > General).

Thank you

AH! One more thing! How can I have a 2nd/multiple video pages that display different videos. Basically I need one page for music videos and one for interviews.

Yaaaaay! it worked out great! Thank you for you help and time. Much appreciated.

One thing! For some reason the youtube images for the videos are not displaying. The links work, but the video thumbs are just the gray no image youtube default. ? Any way to have the proper youtube images show?

You’re welcome!

Make sure the link looks like this:

(no https:// at the beginning, but http:// )

I changed my thump-nail image for my photos in Wordpress Dashboard – Gallery – however the changes aren’t occurring on my website. How can I fix this?

Hey janjan100us! Are you maybe using some cache plugin?

Hi, I jut purchased the theme and prior to buying it I was told that I could drag and drop items for the homepage to customize it as I desired. I’m not seeing the ability to do this. I do not see where I can replace the news section with something else, especially if I’m not planning on using it in the beginning. I would like to have the player on the homepage so that fans can hear a snippet of a song right when they hit the page, but I don’t see where I can add that because the news section takes up the main section below the slider. Can you help me please?


Hey tboogie!

If you are using at least version 1.04 of Soundboard (current version is 3.05; check your version in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo), any content that you enter into the editor of the page that is using the “home template” will display in the center section of the homepage. For example you can enter a JWplayer shortcode (for single songs) or a SoundCloud shortcode (for playlists) into the editor along with text and images to display them in this area.

You can remove the News section in Theme Options > Home (Remove “News Title on Homepage” and set “Number of Headlines” to 0)

For the left and right homepage section, simply drag and drop widgets into the “sidebar home left” and “sidebar home right” to diplay any widgets like tour dates, latest albums, latest videos, latest galleries, text widgets and so on… You can also put any shortcodes into text widgets and place them in the left or right sidebar.

Hope this helps! Cheers

That helped a lot, thank you! One more question: Is it possible for the slider to support video? If not, can it be replaced with revolution slider or royal slider plugins?

I am sorry but the slider does not support videos. You can try and use a plugin, but then you can’t use the built in slider images uploader anymore.

I purchased this awesome theme a couple of days ago, but to my surprise I got the 1.0 version. So, basicaly I have 2 questions for you:

1.- How do I upgrade the theme 2.- I’ve been having problems trying to insert the html5 soundcloud code in the audio page!! it just won’t accept the code and nothing appears!! the page doesn’t get updated!!!

I already reported this to Envato. Seems like quite a few customers got version 1.00 lately. Hope they fix this strange issue soon!

1. Try to redownload Soundboard in the “Downloads” tab (where you find all your purchases). If you still get the old version, please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page.

2. 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.

Hey red_sun, I recently purchased and I love it. I am having a problem with adding music to the album page.

I ran version 1.05 on MAMP locally and my local version was working perfect. I upgraded to version 3.05 on the live server. Audio files are not uploading and I keep getting page 404 errors when I click on the link to the album release. I followed the guide on installing JW Player 6, My soundcloud shortcode is not showing also and for some strange reason after uploading to 100 percent it redirects me from audio to posts.

Thanks exbit


I seem to not be able to upload audio files as it does not save my changes.

Hey exbit…

As for the 404 error, go to Settings > Permalinks and click Save Changes. That should solve the problem.

As for JWplayer: Did you try uploading 1 song by 1? Also please make sure the 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.

If this doesn’t help, please send me your link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll check it out.

Hey! I’m just working through this template and I followed the documentation but when I made the audio page and then added albums I still get the 404 error when I click on the albums on the main audio page. I don’t know why? The permalinks are set like you said.

I’m so very confused!


Hey Livia329.. Thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

Go to Settings > Permalinks and click “Save Changes”. That should solve the problem.


Hi red_sun. I have tried that as I followed the documentation but it doesn’t work still.

Can you please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me a link and login info?

I’d like to throw in another vote for a responsive version. I make a lot of sites for clients and I would purchase a “Soundboard 2” that had responsive capabilities.

If I am going to build another music WordPress theme, it will have a responsive option.

Hi, I am having problems making work the Twitter Widget. I’ve tried with several accounts and I can not make it work. Please some advice.

Thanks in advance.

Hey ppineda123!

Twitter made some major changes to it’s API. The new API (1.1) only works with authentication of each user. Soon the Soundboard twitter widget will stop working completely and I am going to remove it in the next update. Please use this plugin instead:

In order for the feed to display nicely, you can put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.really_simple_twitter_widget li {
    margin-bottom: 20px;


Hi Red Sun There are a few things I would like to do. 1. change the heading size of the headings on the home page 2. Remove the frame around the slider image 3. Remove the arrows from the slider

Can you help me to make these changes?

5. Also, I have inserted an image in one of the widgets on the home page. When I view the website in safari it is showing, but not when I view it in google chrome. What can i do about that?

6. And a couple of questions regarding woocommerce integration: - currently only 4 thumbnails will fit on the categories page, can I change this to fit an extra one on the right? This actually extends to all shop related pages where there is a large space on the right. Can I make it all full width? - How can I hide a thumbnail altogether if I don’t have an image uploaded (rather than showing a blank image)

Thanks for your support Mariska

Hey Mariska!

1. Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS and change the font size to whatever you like:

#content h3.widgettitle {
    font-size: 32px;
#slide-bg {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
.nivo-directionNav {
    display: none;

5. Can you send me a link?

Thanks for that. For some reason I cannot see the changes from the code. I have made a guest login, I will send you a message with the login details. Thanks for your support. Mariska

Hey, I need to add paging in the audio template, because I have long albums?? that I can do?

I’m sorry, but the audio template does not support pagination.

My slider doesn’t seem to be changing slides. Any chance you could take a look?

Seems like you’ve already figured that one out by yourself?

Hello! I have a questions.

1. How can i insert an image in preview of news? When i try to post blabla+image, only blabla shows on main page, but image is shows only in full news (when i click on current news).
2. i need to integrate VKontakte share button along with twitter and FB in news pages. I’m still trying to do it, but VK button runs out of place and places on top of left slider. I need to add it only under (left slider with date, then comment number and then share buttons) share buttons. look:

i am sure that i use the newest version, because i downlodead a template on may 31th 2013 : ) ok so i can do preview images on homepage. but nothing i can do on static page, yes? here’s a screen of how i want: tell me if it’s possible!
2. and look here at Vkontakte button at left slider under twitter and fb. i need to code it correctly? i get the code here

and i activate the VK widget , it’s under the whole article, looks terrible to me.

1. Multiple customers reported lately that they got version 1.00 instead of the latest version, even that they just bought the template a few days ago. So please check your version number in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo. If you have version 1.00, try redownloading the template to see if you get the newest version. If you still get the old version, get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page.

I can’t open that image, I keep getting an error message. If you want you can get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and then send me the image via email.

You can have preview images on the homepage and on the news page. On a static page you can still insert manually any pictures you want with the “add media” button.

2. Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS, it should fix the Vkontakte button issue:

#vkshare0 td {padding: 0;}

thanks, vk button works correct now! i sent a screen via your site.

Hello! We purchased and uploaded this theme. At first we got 1.0, but we finally got 3.05. Nevertheless, nothing seems to work. When we upload slider images, the images don’t appear. When we upload tour dates, the dates don’t appear. Etc. We’ve literally had nothing work. We thought that most of the functionality seems to exist through widgets in the sidebar, so we tried that… nothing. We’re at our wit’s end with this right now. Would you mind contacting us? We’re not wordpress experts, but we’re certainly not novices, and have two other sites up and running just fine. We are happy to privately give you our log-in information. Thank you.

Hey Blogologues.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

Did you follow the instructions in the documentation step by step on how to set up the pages? (also installing the dummy content will probably help you to get started, instructions on how to install the dummy content you can also find in the documentation)

If the documentation doesn’t help, please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me the link and login info and I will help you to set up the page.


Ah, we feel foolish now. Thank you so much for your help!

You’re welcome!
