Hello and blessings of divine goodness. loving the theme (you already knew that :) ) but have some new issues, first I am trying to fix this twitter issue, will try the REALLY SIMPLE plug and see if it works…

my question is about the NEWS posts, for some rezone I notice that my short posts are visible but if I post something a little long with an image in it the post is being cut at it’s lower part. as if there is a limit to the height of the post..

all looks good when I see the entire NEWS page but individual posts are being cut..

and rezone why?

check here for example:

thanks for your time and work.


The homepage news section displays an excerpt of the posts only. In order to display the full post, follow the instructions below:

In the file template-home.php, line 82 and 90 , 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:

I have a question about the videopage. Is it possible that there be more than one page of video’s. I have a lot of video and it would be nice to have the same possibilty as the gallery

Yes please

Well first of all you need to make the video post type support categories. In the file includes/posttypes/video.php, line 36, add:

'taxonomies' => array('category')

(add a comma after line 35!)

Then you would have to duplicate template-video.php and give it a new name up top.

/*Template Name: Video Template mycategory*/

Then in line 27 (of each video template) add the category that you want to display, like this:

'category_name' => 'mycategory',

Thank you thank you it’s working. I’m so happy because I have about 60 video of Lisa Lois live…

Hello again Red_sun! Is it possible to upload/update from my version 1 Soundboard to the latest, without completely removing/overwriting my site, or starting from scratch? Just realized what was causing all of my JW Player problems.

Hi! If you upgrade Soundboard, none of your content or settings in the Theme Options Panel would get lost.

Only changes that you’ve made to the theme files would be lost. That’s why I always recommend making all CSS changes not in the theme files, but in the Theme Options Panel > General > Custom CSS.

Hallo Red_sun. I have a problem with the Album-template (JW Player). The images is coming up but the player can’t find any music. When I do the shortcode for a single music than it will be playing. My question is where does the JWplayer wants the mp3. In the uploads like /uploads/2013/07 because there will it be after upload. Or must I upload it on a differt place.


Hallo Red-Sun. I would like to thank you its working with another mp3 file so I think the two I was using were no good. I have upload an othere album and thats working now… Thank you for your time.

I think there was something wrong with the album because that didn’t work I deleted the album and make anothere one an it’s working perfectly. So many thanks for this great theme.

Glad you made it work, wildwyre!


I have seem to destroyed everything I built :( something to do with deleted database and such, I have a question, I cleaned my hosting place and uploaded a new clean version of wordpress and installed your theme with the dummy content, for sore rezone I cant see anything but basic post view, is it normal? or should I see the entire theme in full spectrum once it’s installed, with premade menses and background image and colors just like you in the screen shots?

thanks again for your time and sorry for the dumb questions.

Right. After endless combination and tryouts I think I got it back to work again, took a million years but I am getting close, I simply love this theme so much I cant give up on it :)

question, for some rezone the font of the page seems to change on me after using one of the fonts in the THEME OPTION TYPOGRAPHY all works nice and then after a while it pops into a different font, odd!

also, you gave once a scrip about the distance of the logo and bar on top and bottom and also text size, all to be placed in the CSS part of the THEME, for some rezone it’s not working anymore, here is what you wrote me and I used a few months ago:

Font size (change value to whatever you like): .sf-menu a { font-size: 14px; } Space above and below menu (change value to whatever you like): #topnavi { margin-top: 15px; } #bg-wrapper { margin-top: 20px; } Center menu (change 700px to the total with of your menu items): .sf-menu { width: 700px; }

I placed it in the Custom CSS part and tried different setting but no change whats so ever… am I doing something wrong?

massive thanks again for your time, bless you!

If you want you can send me link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a look at the custom CSS in the Theme Options Panel.

Hi Gerda! Unsere Website ist nun auch endlich mit deinem Theme online! Ich habe aber nun festgestellt, dass die Bilder in der Galerie nicht sortiert werden! Auf Facebook z.B. werden die Bilder anhand des Dateinamens sortiert, in deinem Theme werden die Bilder random sortiert. Wie kann ich das ändern? Danke!

Hi! Die Bilder kannst Du mittels drag&drop sortieren.

Bei 100 Bildern pro Album könnte das etwas zeitaufwendig sein… ;-) Gibts keinen automatisierten Prozess (z.B. anhand des Dateinamens)?

Leider funktioniert das nicht mit dem script, das ich verwende um die Dateien hochzuladen….

Hello Red Sun. Thanks for the template…its grate. I have one question for you. I need to set up a more than one Shop page (woocommerce). Is possible to do that adding new page an publish some products on shop one and other products on shop 2? Thanks.

Hey robertojasinski.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard, I’m glad you like it :)

Yeah this is possible, with a WooCommerce shortcode. Here is more info about those shortcodes:

Create a new page and enter into the text editor (not the visual editor) the following shortcode (replace “tshirts” with the category you want to display):

[product_category category="tshirts" per_page="12" columns="4" orderby="date" order="desc"]


Hi there,

If I want to change the permalink of the menu item audio from to something like

How would I do that?

Right now, it is automatically generated to say audio.

Hi sds983!

In the file includes/posttypes/audio.php, line 31, change

'rewrite' => true,


'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'music'),


Thank you!


Soundboard looks great and I’m thinking to buy it soon, just one thing though I need to know first, is is possible to somehow adjust the skin, so it gets more see through? Either it is through wordpress settings or custom css.

Thank you for your time

Try deleting 22297.png, copying 22290.png and renaming it to 22297png.

I tried doing it as well but the content continues being dark

Now it worked! Thanks for the help :)

Hi red_sun :)

I updated my wordpress to 3.5.2 and I noticed my twitter feed stopped working. (Not sure if this problem has been around and I just got around to noticing it or if it happened after the update.) I’m still running Soundboard version 1.06 as I’m scared to update because I don’t want to lose any of my edits to the code :P Is updating the theme the only way to fix it?

Thanks -JEGuitarist

Hey JEGuitarist!

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;


Greetings! Thank you for building this amazing theme!

I am hoping to put soundcloud as a widget on the sidebar of my page. I know there is the shortcode for soundcloud built in but wasn’t sure how to utilize this for the sidebar.

Thank you

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

Simply put the shortcode into a text widget and place it in a sidebar.


All Set. Thank you for the quick response!

Loving this theme! Any chance you are planning to make a responsive version anytime soon? :smitten:

By the way, what is the font you used for the Soundboard logo?

Thank you, might be buying it soon!

Hey twelveshots! I’m sorry, I don’t have any plans to make Soundboard responsive.

The logo font is called “Snickles”.


Hey red_sun,

If I download the latest version of Soundboard, will it erase all the customization I’ve done to the .php files and to the Custom CSS section?

I want to add integration for the WooCommerce plugin that I see is now currently included in the latest update, because my version doesn’t have it.

Thanks a lot, Drew

Hey Drew!

The Custom CSS in the Theme Options Panel will not get lost. Only changes that you have made in the theme files would be lost.

You could only add/replace the files that I have added/changed for WooCommerce support, which is:

add folder: woocommere and all files within

add file: woocommerce.php

replace file: functions.php and includes/admin/options.php


Hey red_sun:

I love the theme. Just have a quick question. On my audio page for an album, is there a way to remove the Comments section? I don’t see it for any other page (other than blog posts).



What file format are you using?

Try m4a instead. A great free tool to convert audio files is


I would love to know if its possible to translate the theme into my common language? By the way, a great theme worthy the money!

Cheers, David

Hey Daichisan! Thanks for purchasing Soundboard, I’m glad you like it :)

Yeah this is possible with the included .po file. Here is a good tutorial:


I’m thinking of purchasing this. Does the event calendar allow you to display the time of the event, price, description, etc?

Hey grahamtichy!

Yes, the newest version of Soundboard allows you to add the time on the tour dates page, and a “more info” button as well, which links to a page with more info about each date.


Hello and wonderful theme! I’m looking to change the blog/news section so that the lastest post appear on top of the homepage like you have it. How do I do that? Do I need to update the theme? Thanks for your help!!!

Hey chrissycat1.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

The newest post should always display first. Did you maybe unintentionally make that post that display first a “sticky” post? Or are you using a plugin that is reordering the posts?

HEy, Im trying to get twitter’s feeds on the home page but even thought I put the twitter’s username I can’t see anything

Hello! Awesome theme! I just have a question before purchasing. Can I substitute the Flickr for an instagram one?

Hey KornerGFX! An Instagram widget is not included in the theme files. But you can simply add an Instagram plugin for that. One of these here for example:
