Hi again,

2nd question, the facebook box doesnt have a right side… it’s the same issue on the “sidebar home right” and on the “sidebar footer”. I don’t understand why…thanks a lot !!

Is there a setting for the facebook box where you can set the width?

3rd and last question for today ;-) How can I put a widget with tabs like on this website :

I understand the shortcodes and how to create inside a page or article but dunno how to put it where I want it and to choose what should be display in it.

Thanks again !!

So what happens if you enter 220 and use that code? It still displays 292px wide?

It says, the plugin can only have a width of 292…I can type 220 but when I try to validate it’s still impossible. So I even can’t see how it would be :-( I send an email to facebook…but I don’t have any hope of a reply. Any idea or other plugin ? Thanks !!

Hmm… I just typed in 220 and then pasted the following code into a text widget and it worked for me:

<div class="fb-like-box" data-href="" data-width="220" data-show-faces="true" data-colorscheme="dark" data-stream="true" data-show-border="false" data-header="false" />

(using the HTML5 method)

Hi There,

Wonderful theme, 5 stars, will buy again from you :)

Having one small issue I’m hoping you can help me with. I cannot get any text to appear on the slider. It seems pretty easy but maybe I’m missing a setting somewhere else besides the slider page that says to display the text?

I’m following the directions in the documentation and have the latest update of the theme so I don’t know why the text won’t appear on the slider. Thanks in advance for your reply :) Cheers.

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

You see the “Edit / Delete” option above each slider image in the admin area? Click on “Edit” and then scroll all the way down. Then enter the caption under “SLIDER Caption”.

If you already did all of that and it still doesn’t work, you can send me your link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a look!


sheesh, sorry to bother you, that was was of those “I stayed up too late working on the project and starting losing my mind” questions :D It’s working, thank you!!! :)

Hi, I like customization to this. Please contact me to further discuss this, thx!

Hey ramin85! Please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page. Thanks!

Can i add songs for sell in this via woocommerce I am looking for shop where i can sell my songs can i do that to this theme if yes i am interested to buy :)

Hey james112… Thanks for your interest in Soundboard!

Yes, with WooCommerce you can sell digital goods. More info on that you can find on the WooComerce site: - -


Hallo Gerda :-)

Bitte sage mir kurz wie ich eine zweite Email Adresse im Kontaktformular hinterlegen kann. Ich möchte das die Nachrichten über das Kontaktformular an zwei separate Email-Adressen versendet wird. Wenn ich mit einem Semikolon trenne (unter “theme options -> Kontakt”) bekomme ich anschließend beim Testen eine Fehlernachricht. Danke und lieben Gruß

Hallo! Hast Du schon versucht, die Adressen mit einem einfachen Komma zu trennen?

Hallo Gerda, klappt nicht. es kommt die Meldung das die Nachricht versendet wurde aber im Postfach im Outlook taucht dann nix auf.

Was kann man da tun?

Besteht auch die Möglichkeit dieses Kontaktformular zu erweitern. sprich Auswahlfelder als Dropdown-list für unterschiedliche Betreff Varianten einbauen?

Danke dir :-)

Ich glaube eine gute Lösung für Dich wäre es eventuell ein plugin zu verwenden anstatt des eingebauten contact template. zB das “Contact Form 7” plugin. Dieses plugin ist sehr flexibel!

Hi red sun, here i am again :-) i tried to install WooCommerce plugin in my wordpress but it reports that message: “Your theme does not declare WooCommerce support”.. i read in the Soundboard purchase page that “Soundboard is compatible with the great WooCommerce plugin so that you can sell your band merchandise online. Stylesheets are included so your shop perfectly matches the rest of the theme.” where i’m doing a mistake? may help me? thanks a lot and keep up!

ps. i’ve installed Woocommerce 2.0.12 ( Andrea

Hey Andrea! Which version of Soundboard are you using? (you can check your version number in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo)

i’m using Soundboard Version 3.05 Shall i update the theme? in this case, how can i do it? thanks! :-)

No need to update, that’s the newest one. Does the WooCommerce shop page display just like on the Soundboard theme demo? If yes, you can just dismiss the message.

Great template red_sun! Can you tell me how to adust the Demo Slider code so that the “slider image links to” link will open the URL in a new window? Thanks!

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

In the file slider.php, line 35, change

 echo "<a href="$cf"><img src="{$src}" alt="" title="$caption" /></a>";


 echo "<a href="$cf" target="_blank"><img src="{$src}" alt="" title="$caption" /></a>";

Hi, is it possible to get some different sliders on different pages working (by using a shortcode)? At the moment there is only one slider on the homepage possible. Thank you in advance!

Hey union-web, I’m sorry but this is not possible with Soundboard.

Hi, I was wondering if it’s possible to add pagination to some custom post type ? I created a new template and put <?php gg_pagination(); ?> after the loop but nothing shows. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to pass any parameters to the function ? I tried gg_pagination($loop) but no dice :(

Here is my query and start of my loop :
            $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
            $loop = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'hyperdumpstory', 'posts_per_page' => 10, 'paged' => $paged ) );
            <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post(); ?>

I’m not sure either if I need to declare the $paged variable.

I found a script to enable the pagination ( in French sorry) but since there is already your built-in pagination function, I would prefer using it than adding any superfluous script.

Thanks in advance.

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

I’m setting up a website for a band and didn’t purchase the theme myself. I’ll have to ask their account ID then… But I just want to know if that’s possible to make your pagination work in a custom post type listing page ?

Not as it is, no.

Hi, I just noticed that my tweets are not showing up in my twitter feed. It used to work fine. Any idea what I can do to get it working again.

Great theme


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;



Thank you for such a great theme, seems to be simple to use but I have hit a few road blocks and I’m hoping that you can help.

1 – How do I put my audio/video into an order of my choice ? 2 – My Tweets are not showing up ? 3 – Can I adjust the speed of the sliders ? 4 – Is there a newsletter sign up module that would work well with this theme ? 5 – How do I get my “news” page to run from the “news feed” ?

Thank you very much,

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

1. Simply change the publishing date of the audio/video and the items will reorder.

2. Please have a look at my reply to “dnosewor”, who asked the same question right before you.

3. One of my customers once recommended this one:

4. You can find the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the News page” (Step 6!)


Awesome thanks sooo much for the quick reply.

Hi There, GREAT theme but I have a problem with the JW player showing the songs. The light box pops up with the album cover but the right block is all black…

here is a link :

please help!

Cheers, Kevin

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

Looks like you are using the JWplayer plugin. Soundboard does not work with that plugin. Please follow the instructions in the documentation on how to integrate JWplayer into the theme:


Hi Red Sun,

Thanks for the awesome band theme, its just what I was after! Although I’m a bit confused and have the same issue as andrearot. I’ve only just bought your theme today and downloaded the latest WooCommerce plugin and I get the same error message as andrearot. “Your theme does not declare WooCommerce support”.

I’ve added a few products to see what it looks like and it doesn’t display like the Soundboard demo did I miss something??? I’ve checked the “Enable WooCommerce CSS” but my buttons and images are distorted.

Your help would be greatly appreciated! :)


Hey Red Sun,

Thanks so much for your reply but I fixed the problem (which was your solution any way ;) ) which also brings me to another little question. My shop pages are not displaying a sidebar? I have the pages using “default template” which uses the “main sidebar” but nothing shows on these pages which is odd as I have another page set to default and it shows the sidebar fine?

Maybe its a sign I should step away from my computer?

Jamie :)

:D The solution is, that the shop page uses the “WooCommerce sidebar”, even that it uses the “default template”.

Oh, the laughing smiley here on TF looks evil…

Hey there!

Quick question for ya ;)

When you use the featured image for the blog, obviously the whole picture doesn’t show because it’s using a thumb which is fine. My question is: Is there a way to have the blog images clickable with lightbox or something to show the full image? Or is there a way to change the default image size of the thum from being limited to only 220px in height?

Hope that made sense :) Thanks!

Hey tonvie…

In order for the featured image on the news page to link to the full image in a lightbox, make the following changes to the theme files:

file loop.php and single.php, line 87, change



$image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id(), 'full');
 ?><a class="pretty_image" title="" data-rel="prettyPhoto" href="<?php echo $image[0] ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></a> <?php 


Thank you SO much! I really appreciate that, sorry for the late reply. I realize that was probably more of a customization and you probably didn’t have to do that ;) I will definitely keep you in mind my friend! Outstanding support!

You’re welcome, tonvie

Hallo i’m running a fanclub for a dutch singer. I have a fanclub site in joomla but i want one in wordpress. I am impress with your template. I’m very new to wordpress but it seems easy to work with. I want to show tourdata, music, pictures, news in a blog, link of the music to itunes, twitter, our facebook and perhaps storys of the fans. Do you think this template can do it all.

Hey wildwyre! Thanks for your interest in Soundboard!

Yes you can do all of this with Soundboard. For twitter and facebook you would neet to add a plugin though.

If it helps, here is a link on how to set up the pages, so that you get an idea of how to work with WordPress:



Thanks for the awesome theme!

I want to work with widgets, but no matter what i do i can’t make it to work. My homepage only shows posts. What can i do?

Thanks in advance.


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

Please make sure to follow the instructions in the documentation under “Setting up the Homepage” (especially step 6!)


got it! thanks again!

I have upgraded to your latest version of soundboard. I noticed now that none of the things that should be using light box are working. Pictures open to separate web page, videos go to youtube’s webpage etc. Even my instagram widget wont show pictures in a light box.

Hey Vrenna… can you please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me a link? Thanks!

Oh I just saw you already sent me an email.

yep, email was sent with link

Every time I add the Twitter widget on the sidebar on the homepage, my website only loads half of it. Also if I add the twitter widget on the footer, it doesn’t display anything.

Hey JLV2021.. please don’t use the Soundboard twitter widget anymore. 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. 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;
