Hey hows it going! Theme has been working great, I had just one doubt! I need to upload a free sample of the CD so that people can download it, is there a way I can do it in the theme!

Thanks in advance!

Try this: Upload the file in Media > Add New and then post the link as follows (replace http://www.fullURLtomusicfile.m4a with the actual URL of the uploaded music file):

<a href="http://www.fullURLtomusicfile.m4a" target="_blank">Download Link</a> 

The Twitter feed is no longer working. I was hoping the recent update covered it, but it didn’t. Any ideas when that will be fixed? Jetpack’s Twitter widget is ugly.

Hey amatlack.. as pancho_karamanski already mentioned, the Soundboard twitter widget is no longer working.

Twitter made some major changes to it’s API. The new API (1.1) only works with authentication of each user. This is why the Soundboard twitter widget stopped working 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;
.twitter-timestamp {
    font-size: 10px;


The author told that the Twitter feed is no longer supported. You need to use some plugin for this to work.

Quick question: If I use a PayPal Pro extension for WooCommerce this shouldn’t pose a problem with the theme’s functionality or appearance right?

I haven’t tested Soundboard with the PayPal Pro extension, but I don’t see why that should be a problem… If you run into any problems, let me know and I will do my best to add a fix in the next update.

Hello red_sun. Thank you for this awesome theme. I would like to add an image gallery in a fullwidth page, could i do that with customs fields (and eventually which way) ? Sorry for my bad english.

Thank you for your answer. I want to add a gallery (like in demo page) but in a fullwidth page, to display the gallery under text and video, in the same page.

Thank you.

astus.. you can still use the gallery template (make sure you are using at least version 1.06 though. Current version is 3.05. You can check your version number in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo).

Any content (text or videos) that you place into the editor of the page that is using the gallery template, will appear above the gallery.

Ok, I’ve to upgrade my theme. thank you red_sun !!

Hi love the theme. I would like to change the font size in the nav bar.

Thank you!

Hey mickenzie.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! Great to hear you like it :)

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

.sf-menu a {
    font-size: 14px;

#topnavi {
    height: 44px;


Thanks got it!

I would also like to center the logo above the menu please. Thank you!

If you are using at least version 1.06 of Soundboard, you can center the logo in Theme Options > General. (You can check your version number in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo)

I am interested in purchasing this template. In terms of installing it to Wordpress, do you handle the Install? If not would it cost extra to allow you to install the template for me? Is the process simple?

Hey YavesEllis! Thanks for your interest in Soundboard. Installing the theme is very easy. If you unzip the purchased file, you will find a detailed documentation on how to install and set up the theme. If you run into any problems, I will gladly help. Cheers!

Hi RED_SUN and thank you so much for this beautiful theme! I’ve got a problem with the widgets: they are not displayed in the site and i can’t understand why. This is my site:

Another question: is there in the theme a default way to insert youtube videos in posts? In that case, which is the shortcode for?

May you help me? Thank you! Andrea (from Italy, sorry for my bad english)

Hey Andrea… Thanks for purchasing Soundboard! I’m glad you like it :)

Your home site does not use the home template. Please follow all the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the Homepage” (especially step 6!)

As of WordPress version 2.9, you simply need to place the URL of the YouTube video into it’s own line into the editor of a post. More info here:


Sorry i managed to show right widget column.. but not the left widget column yet! it seems the left column doesn’t exist in my theme.. how is it possibile? i have several active widget (by default) in the left side but it doesn’t show them.. i can’t understand, help me :-)

Another Question: how can i insert lyrics in the album section of the site like in the demo preview of Soundboard theme? The spoiler thing is really interesting!

(Sorry for the double post) thank you! Andrea

Andrea… instructions on how to display the lyrics you can find in the documentation under “Setting up the Audio Page”:

Hello! Thank you for this great template, been using it for a while now. But today I ran into a problem. I have a page, standard template, on which I post photos.

I have reached the point that the content is so long it goes into the footer. Is there a way I can use pagination on this page? I tried using the <!-nextpage-> tag but that doesn’t work.

I don’t know where to enter the <?php wp_link_pages ?> either to make it work.

Can you help me??

Thanks in advance!

Hey Wheelie_NL, thanks for purchasing Soundboard! I’m glad you like it :)

In order for Soundboard to support the nextpage tag, put the following code into the file single.php, line 106 (right above <?php endwhile; else: ?> )

<?php wp_link_pages(); ?>



Thanks for your swift response! However the solution you gave doesn’t seem to work. I have no idea why though.

I tried placing it in single.php, page.php and loop.php right above <?php endwhile; else: ?> on every file.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks again!

Hmm.. I tested this code and it worked for me… If you want you can get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me a link and login info and I’ll check it out.

Hi, I have an issue. When I upload songs to an album, these are disorganized in their reproduction, that can happen?

jhulianni… that shouldn’t happen. Did you try to upload one song by one?


The theme and the content is great, although it appears I am having some issues with the styling of the page or it is failing to read some of the css (background not displaying/ navigation hovers not working and font not being applied)

It would be great if you can take a quick look and find out where im going wrong?The url is

Thank you :)

Hey phisheye89.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! I’m glad you like it :)

Did you already check out the FAQ section in the documenation?

First, I wanted to say that this template is excellent! Great work all around. With some tweaks, it will give me exactly what I need to make managing my band’s website a bit less stressful and easier going forward. I write software and develop websites for a living, so that hopefully gives enough praise to the author’s work here. I was just about to do my third full-redesign of our current site, until I thought to look into Wordpress and found this. I’m impressed!

Anyway, I’ve already made 15-20 adjustments (most small) through css and php changes, but there are a few things I’m stuck on, if you don’t mind giving me some direction or examples.

1. I’m not a fan of the “++” next to dates. I found where to remove them for the homepage news section, but am at a loss regarding sidebar widgets. For example, when the news widget is displayed to the right of the tour page. I can’t seem to find any other php with “++” that I haven’t already removed.

2. I’ve modified the background colors for most of the template, which were in files in the images folder. But for the footer, is looks as though you’re not using any images. Where am I able to adjust the two colors in the footer. I didn’t see anything for this in the CSS.

3. I like the tabs shortcode and it’ll be perfect for separating the band bio and individual member bios, however, I would really like the color of the tabs to be reversed. In other words, make the selected tab utilize the theme color and the non-selected ones to just use the background color. I’d like it to be similar to how the navigation menu works. OR have the selected tab remain as it is now, but the non-selected tabs be a more subtle and less intrusive color. Right now I’m using a shade of blue that is overkill when five tabs are that color.

4. In regard to the tabs, I noticed that some font settings are lost. Mainly, inside of the tabs, the font color is white, instead of the off-white/grayish color that the rest of the template uses. I would like the text to look the same inside of the tabs as it does with standard text elsewhere.

5. Finally, the navigation menu looks great, but for some reason every top menu item sticks (or stays selected) upon clicking it except for the home item. In other words, if I click “Videos” or “Tour”, it will stay blue, but if I click “Home”, the blue shows up for the hover effect, but after I click, it’s no longer blue (and appears unselected). Have you seen this before? Unfortunately I’m currently developing locally, so I can’t send you a URL to the live site. I don’t plan on going live until I’m ready and currently, we have an active site that I don’t want to impact. I could send a screenshot though, if necessary.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Actually, I do have one more (hopefully quick) question for you. I’ve been searching, but can’t find where you’re setting the prettyphoto theme for the video and audio pages. All I’ve been able to find is the prettyphoto js file itself. I’d like to use one of the dark themes instead of the light one that’s being used. My color scheme is dark and doesn’t go very well with the white frame. In fact, I’ll probably change some of the other settings as well. Thanks again!

You can find all custom scripts, including the prettyPhoto settings in the file js/scripts.js. (The second prettyPhoto code is for the login form only!)

Got it – thanks again!

Hi, I have a problem with uploading an image to the slider. When I make a new slide, upload an image and publish this, no image is showing up. In the source code I can see that the slider links to a file ‘' and not to an existing image url. Do you know how to solve this problem? Best regards, Sander

Hey Gravual! For theme support please log into the account that you’ve used to purchase Soundboard before posting a comment so that I can verify you as a valid customer. Thanks!

Sander, please send me your link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a look.

I need a page with comments, but the comments don’t appear. How can activate the comments in page?

Hey elomor!

In order for the fullwidth template to support comments, add the following code into template-fullwidth.php, line 44, right above <?php get_footer(); ?>

<div id="comments">
              <?php comments_template(); ?>
</div><!-- #comments-->

(For the default template, make the same changes to the file page.php)

Hey jackth! I’m sorry, but these things are not possible with Soundboard.


Thanks for the Theme…very happy with my purchase. Having a small issue. I am unable to get my jw player to play. Do I have to re-install the entire theme? When I add an audio file, the soundcloud player appears and functions correctly. However nothing but ‘jw player’ text appears below the soundcloud player. I have checked the activate jw player box, and ‘display audio player’ on the edit album page, but still does not play. I’d greatly appreciate any assistance you could provide. Thank you.

Done. Works great! Thanks again for your help.

One more question, how do I get either of the players to auto-play? Thanks

Here is a link with instructions on how to make the Soundcloud player autoplay:

As for the JWplayer: that would require modifications of the code in the theme files.

Hi, How can I have a page without the sidewidgets? For example I want my news page to have to side widgets and be a full page. Tks!

Hey amirmusic!

The easiest way, without changing any of the theme files, would be to put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.blog #sidebar { display: none; }
.blog .grid_9 { width: 940px; }
.blog .entry { width: 760px; }
.blog-bottomborder { width: 940px; }


Hi red_sun,

Firts all thanks for your great work !!! My question is : At the bottom of my website, I can’t see the end of article or the “send” button on the contact page, or the “submit” button of the comment box. My url :

Is it because I tried to install the Really simple Twitter Feed ? (which doesn’t work for me)

Thansk a lot !!

Hey bddprod.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard, I’m glad you like it!

Hmm… I can see both those buttons on your site. Which browser are you using? (I just tested in Chrome and Firefox)
