Hi there red_sun

My site is up and running perfectly, apart from the Facebook like button…

When I click it, it takes me to the Facebook login page, I log in but nothing actually comes up on my Facebook wall…. Have tested it with various other people and still the same prob, even though the button on my site shows that I’ve clicked it.

Hope that makes sense, wondering if you can shed any light on the problem?



Hey red_sun,

I’ve come across another problem that i wonder if you could help me with?

When i make a new post and insert a gallery of say 3 images, the captions underneath each picture are not aligning properly.

Please see an example of my problem here:

any idea why?



Paul, the caption of the gallery images are right aligned.

If you would rather have them left aligned, add the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.wp-caption, .gallery-caption, .wp-caption-text {
    text-align: left;

You’re a star! :)


still really happy with the theme. Just one simple question i guess: 1) Where in the Home Template do i place the short code or content for the center section? Want to put a Facebook feed in there. And one more: 2) In the Tour Section i get MI – Aug 13,2014 as the date. As the Page should be in German i would like to have it in order MI – 13 Aug, 2014, possible?

Thanks for help!

Hey there… I’m glad to hear you are still happy with the theme!

1) You can put the shortcode/content into the editor of the page that is using the home template, it will appear in the center section on the home page (support for this was added in version 1.04 of the theme).

2) You would actually have to change the date format in the theme files: file template-tourdates.php, starting with line 92 for the upcoming dates and line 245 for the past dates.

Switch the two code lines

<div class="tour-month"><?php echo $pretty_date_M; ?></div>


<div class="tour-day"><?php echo $pretty_date_d; ?>, </div>  

and move the comma at the end of the tour-day code over to the tour-month code.


Hi there, this theme looks great from functionality perspective but the live demo is not working for me. Can you send me some examples of sites with woo commerce working before I purchase? Thanks! Annie

Hey Annie!

Thanks for your interest in Soundboard and reporting that the site is down.

I just got in touch with my host and I hope they will fix the problem asap!

Please check the live demo site again in a couple hours.


Annie… just letting you know the demo site is working again.

Hello! suddenly the nivo slider stopped working in the site. I’ve checked in the admin section, theme settings/slider, and all look good, but the slider is not there!

Can you helpme plz?

The Site Adress is:


Hey there!

You Home page does not use the home template and therefore the slider does not display.

Go to Pages > All Pages and make sure you page called Home (or in your case I guess “Inicio” uses the home template.

Now click Settings > Reading and select Front page displays a static page. Select the Home (or Inicio) page as your Front page and click Save Changes.

If you need any more help with this, send me your login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll set it up.


Hey Red Sun I bought your awesome theme today and I am really happy with it.

However, like some of the other poster I would really like to add additional sliders to other pages,( mainly the audio pages) can you help me with that.

In one post you say its not possible while in another you say it can be done but some Theme files need to be changed.

This is my first WP site and I am new to this, so whatever you can do to help will be appreciated.

Thanks Jon

Hey Jon! I’m glad to hear you are happy with your purchase :)

I first thought it would be too complicated to add a slider to other pages, but it’s actually not that hard, if you add a slider plugin and make a few changes to the theme files.

Here are the instructions:

Install a slider plugin ( Meta Slider is great!: )

Now at the bottom of the file header.php, right above

</d iv> <!-- #headertop--> 

add for each page that you want to add a slider:

<?php if (is_page('page-slug')) {  ?>
  <div id="slide-bg">
     <div id="slideshow">


     </div><!-- #slideshow-->
  </div><!-- #slide-bg-->   
<?php } ?>  

Replace “page-slug” with the “slug” of the page (you can find the slug of the page by clicking “Quick Edit” ) and replace “[ ENTER SLIDER SHORTCODE HERE! ]” with the shortcode of the slider.

(If you are looking for an easy way to make customizations in the theme files from within the WordPress admin area, I can recommend the “WPide” plugin. )

Hope this helps. Cheers!


so we are online with the theme, now i got a problem with my index file i guess. In the footer it is showing some index text.

Site is:

Any idea?

All the best

Did you alread check if your index.php file is complete? See here:

Cool looking customization of my theme btw!

Hi red_sun,

thank you for the theme – it is very cool and simple.

But how did you import all the content in the “news”-page. I can’t find anything to import.

Greets, GreenSun

hm, ok i can create new posts, but if i click on the menu button “news” there are no posts at all.

There is just the content: “This is an example page. It’s different from … “

You need to follow all steps in the documentation under “Setting up the News Page”, especially step 6 is important!

oooooh thaaaaaanks dude – that helped a lot :D

best regards !

Hi there redsun !

I’m using this theme for 2 years now and still loving it ! I just have one question about it though : is it responsive ? A lot of people told me that they couldn’t display my website clearly on iPhone and iPads so I’d like to know if there is any way to make it responsive ? I didn’t find anything related to that in the theme options.

Thanks a lot for your answer ! :)

Hey there, I’m glad to hear you still love the theme :)

Currently, the theme is not responsive. But making the theme optimized for mobile phones and tablets is actually my very next project. Since I am super busy right now, it might still take a couple months though until I release the update…

Cheers! Gerda

Nice, very glad to hear that. Take all the time you need, I appreciate the fact it is already in your plans ;) Cheers !

Hello!! Before to buy your theme i want ask you about the possibility to have social icons on the right top of the page. It is possible?? Thanks

Hey Makiote, thanks for your interest in Soundboard!

I am working on an update for Soundboard right now and I am adding an option to add the social icons in the top bar (instead of “LOG IN”).

It’s probably going to take a couple weeks until I release the update, but since I already wrote the code for this option, you can get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page after your purchase and I can send you the theme files including this opton.


It’s too bad there isn’t a band member profile shortcode that could be used. Everything else looks good though.

Hi, I am using the dark theme. The color of the body text (blog) is black! I can only see the links. How can I change this?! Thanks.

I put this into the cusom css: body {font-family: “Arial”; } and it did not work.

Ok, so turns out, I entered that into the WORDPRESS custom css style sheet and it works, instead of using the theme.

In order to change any CSS, put your code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS and it will override any stylesheets. That way you can also update the theme later without losing any content!


This is a great theme.

I just wanted to know how to get the images to show full width in the slider. I have edited them so that they are the correct pixels to what you want but i cannot seem to get them to change. This is my website

I would also like to know how you put the red wording on top of the image that creates a link…is this shortcoding?

Sorry if any of these questions have already been asked. I have done a search of the discussion forum before i asked these questions.


Hey Rich! I’m glad to hear you enjoy working with the theme :)

You can actually find the answer to both of your questions right next to the slider images uploader ;)

When you go to Slider > Add Slider, you can find the following information:

Image must be 940×360px. (= answer to your first question)

To display a caption over the slider image,click Edit and enter the text under SLIDER Caption. (= answer to your second question)

Let me know if you need any more help with this.


Thanks for your answer man. I will continue editing and rack up some more questions and fire them at you all at once so as to save time. Great job…keep it going!

Is there a possiblilty that you can make tourdates for multiple different ‘bands’ ? would be as simple as a category for tour dates.

exclude i fixed meanwhile

Hey there!

This is only possible by making a few changes/additions to the theme files. With the following instructions you can create multiple Tourdate pages. Each page will show only tourdates from a certain category:

Step 1: First of all you need to make the tour post type support categories. In the file includes/posttypes/tourdates.php, line 43, add:

'taxonomies' => array('category')

Add a comma after line 42!, so it should look like this:

'supports' => array('title','revisions'),
'taxonomies' => array('category')

Step 2: Then you would have to duplicate template-tourdates.php and give it a new name up top. For example

/*Template Name: Tour Dates artist 1 */

Then around line 32 (of each tourdates template) add the category that you want to display, like this:

'category_name' => 'artist1',

so it should look like this:

$args = array(
        'orderby' => 'meta_value',
        'meta_key' => 'gxg_date',                                        
        'meta_value' => strftime("%Y/%m/%d", time()- (60 * 60 * 24) ),
        'meta_compare' => '>',
        'order_by' => 'meta_value',                                        
        'order' => 'ASC',
        'post_type' => 'tourdates',
         'category_name' => 'artist1',
        'posts_per_page' => -1 );

Now add a new page (Pages > Add New) and select the new template. On this page only the tourdates will appear that you give a category of “artist1”.

You can repeat step 2 to create multiple Tourdates templates.


awesome, easy fix! thanks a lot!

I’ve been using this theme and I really like it. However, when I attach videos or photos to posts in my news feed they seem to be getting cut off or experiencing other size issues. Is there a way to format post to automatically fit photos and video in the newsfeed with out this happening?

My website is

Hey there… I’m glad to hear you enjoy working with the theme!

What theme version are you using? I fixed this in one of the updates.

Also, your theme seems to not be installed properly. The Fonts and Theme Color does not work. I recommend you to download the latest version from here: and reinstall the theme. Make sure you are not uploading the whole zip file that you’ve downloaded from Themeforest (including dummy content, license, psd files, readme …) but only the file.

If this doesn’t fix the problem let me know.


Thank you for the reply. I am using the Soundboard theme. I reinstalled the theme and it fixed the font issue, but the posts on the news page are still cutting the attached pictures and videos off. Any other suggestions on how to fix this issue?


Add the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.entry-h iframe {
    height: 240px;
    max-width: 100%;

(You can also adjust the “height” value if you want).

Hi, I purchased this theme for an comic artist which is acting his show in Paris (60 dates) and during a tour in several cities in France. I’d like for the visitor to create one “tour dates” page for PARIS and another one for “TOUR”. Is it possible ? In order to immediately see the content he wants and not scrolling all the dates in one page …

And how can i display on the home page both widgets ?

Thanks a lot for your answer !

Hey there, thanks for purchasing Soundboard! This is only possible by making changes to the theme files. Do you have some coding experience?

not really but i can try :)

Hi red-sun,

My question is about the tour date page. Before I come to you, I have already do this :

Hey there! You woud have to make these changes directly in the theme files: file template-tourdates.php, line 95:
<div class="tour-weekday"><?php echo $pretty_date_D; ?> -  </div>
<div class="tour-month"><?php echo $pretty_date_M; ?></div>
<div class="tour-day"><?php echo $pretty_date_d; ?>, </div>   
<div class="tour-year"><?php echo $pretty_date_yy; ?></div>
Move the 4 lines around as you wish, you can also change comma and dash right before if you want. Do the sam thing in line 262 for past tour dates.

And I also begin to translate the .po in french and everything works just as you said to other people.

My problem is when I enter different dates on the same month and year, the first one comes before the last one. That’s strange because the others dates of the same year stay from newest to oldest. I try to change the date of publication, no effect.

Thanks a lot !!


Thanks for your reply…in fact I had just changed those 4 lines and erase the ”,”

I’m just trying different font, so I test different px size on the custom css box as you explain to do :

.sf-menu a { font-size: 18px; } #topnavi { height: 44px; } #content h3.widgettitle { font-size: 16px; line-height: 18px; margin-bottom: 10px; }

I don’t know where to search more…stilll need help :D !!!

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

I just send you a message few hours ago !!! Thanks again !

Hi, you have the version of soundboard including smartphones?

Not yet… I am planning on releasing a responsive version in September.

Hey red_sun,

Is there a way to increase the size of the button and text-size for the “Buy Tickets” button on the Tour page? Thanks

Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.tour-button, .cancelled, .soldout {
    font-size: 14px;

HI there!

The webmaster of my client is on a holiday. He also bought the theme that’s why it doesn’t say ‘purchased’.

I have one simple thing actually. Next to City, Venue etc i want also a writing box for the name of the party. How do I create an extra writing box?

Thank you in advance !


You can add another custom field in the file includes/metaboxes/custom-meta-boxes.php, within the TOURDATES section.

         'name' => __('Party','gxg_textdomain'),
         'desc' => '',
         'id' => $prefix . 'extrafield',
         'type' => 'text',
         'std' => '',

And then call the field value in the file template-tourdates.php.

set variable:
 $extrafield = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'gxg_extrafield', true);

call variable:

<td class="tour-item tour-extrafield"> <?php echo $extrafield; ?> </td>

Premium themes should ALWAYS be responsive.

Hey there! I created Soundboard 2 years ago, when nobody cared about responsiveness. Releasing a responsive update for Soundboard is on the very top of my To Do list though.

That’s great to hear!
