I am having trouble changing my slider tab. I’ve followed the instructions:-
Create a new page or edit an existing one
Scroll down to beneath the text editor and look for Slider Settings within the General Settings container.
The trouble is, there’s no “Slider Settings” section under the “General Page Settings” section when editing a page.
Assistance would be appreciated.
Hello! Thanks for being a customer
Let’s see… are you using the latest version of our theme? The current version is 1.9.1, and the “Slider Settings” section that you’re looking for was introduced in version 1.9.
If you’re using an older version, the latest documentation has those instructions as well (under the instructions for doing it the new way).
Let me know if you run into any issues…
I have another question, In the Menu I don´t see the category. And I don´t know, Why? Is possible that this problem to be relation with the htaccess.
I need answers a soon as possible.
Hi there, Javier!
It’s difficult for me to diagnose what the problem could be without being able to see your website. It sounds like you added a category to a menu, but that category isn’t appearing on your website… Am I understanding you correctly?
Yes it is the problem, I can´t see the category in the menu. This is the website http://nueva.zut-ediciones.com. This web is in Spanish and the menu is in the header. That moment this web is no active.
Alright, I can see a list of 9 categories that appear when I hover over the “Revista” menu link. Are there some that aren’t appearing on your end?
I can not display slider on top page.
According to your instruction(new way), I created new page and selected some options in Slider Settings. Then saved changes.
However, slider does not appear on the top page.
Should I also change the other settings?
Thank you in advance for your help.
Hi there! Happy to help
Can you tell me what options you have selected? Also, if you can share the address to your website that may help as well.
Thank you for your prompt reply.
I created new page for slider. The title is “Home”
Here is the slider settings of the page.
Slider type : Wide Slider
Slider Source Blog posts
Slider blog categories : all unchecked
Slider Count 10
I’m looking forward to your reply.
Okay, thanks for sharing your website! It looks like you got it working – I see the “Staggered” slider on the homepage. Is the “Wide” slider not working for you?
Finally, I tried the “old way”. and it’s working well.
By the way, now I have another problem regarding layout for iPhone retina display.
Current layout is slightly wider than the display. Especially, when it enable “Full Width Layout”, one character of the right-side end protrudes and is not able to displayed.
Please check and fix this problem.
Okay we just submitted an update to fix the issues you found. Thanks for bringing those issues to our attention – I’ll let you know when the update has been approved by Themeforest (although you may receive the notification before I see it, depending on your timezone).
With that said, we’re still unable to reproduce the issue that you were having with the slider, but we’ll continue looking into it until we find a proper solution. We’ve tried it out in multiple browsers and with multiple WordPress versions but our sliders still appear perfectly… I’m wondering if a plugin may be causing the problem?
Anyway, in the meantime let me know if you run into any other issues. Thanks!
Well, damn… that was fast. It looks like Themeforest has already approved the update!
Again, please don’t hesitate to let us know if you run into any other issues.
Sorry for the late reply.
I applied new version and it works well. Thanks.
Regarding the slider by “new way”, I can not understand why it does not appear. And I’m not using related plugins.
Now I applied version 1.9.2. What is the difference 1.9.2 and 1.9.3?
1.9.3 was a pretty minor update, we noticed a minor issue with the “tagline” shortcode… and someone requested the ability to launch social links (the ones in the header) in a new tab.
Regarding the slider, are you able to create sliders using the new way on any pages at all? When you have the time, do me a favor and create a test page, add a slider, and make sure to only use “Default template” or “Homepage” as the page template (I’m now realizing that those words need to be added to the documentation, btw).
Let me know what happens… no rush.
I am thinking of purchasing Staggerly. Very nice. But I need to be able to add full ad backgrounds where the gray and white grunge background is in the example. Is it possible to add one image in the background or would anything that I use in the background have to be a tile or pattern?
Hi there! Sorry for the late reply.
Yes! The Staggerly theme does allow you to use a single background that does not tile.
Would it be difficult to use a featured post and image instead of the slider?
How can I fill the advertisement places? I do not see a widget for it or a place where to add a image and link.
I hope you can tell me where I can make these changes. Because right now i have a yellow-ish field that states: “Advertisement 728×90”
You can change that ad by going to Appearance > Theme Options > Footer Options and adding your own code to the “Footer Ad Code” field.
If you ever decide to remove that ad space, simply toggle the “Show Footer Ad” setting to “Off”.
Hi there, I got this as part of the blogger bundle, which I know is not entitled to direct support, but I’m struggling with one thing and wondered if you can help me.
I’m trying to add an “author box” at the end of post (single.php) and it’s working, except I can’t seem to be able to style it at all via CSS (style.css).
My author box is inside a div id=”author-info”
I have two questions regarding configuration for our Wordpress (http://bit.ly/VgYcnR) and would be happy about some help:
1. Do I have to make the starting starting page a static page to use the slider? If not, how do I activate the slider on the index-page?
2. How do I translate “Read more”, “Comments” etc. below each article into another language? I uploaded a changed language file, but that didnt help.
Thank you for your reply
Hi there, Andre! Thanks for being a customer
To answer your questions…
Re: Question 1. Yes, you do need to make your homepage a static page to use the slider. However, if you still want to show recent posts on the homepage, you can do so by using one of the “Homepage” templates or by using the “Blog” shortcode.
Re: Question 2. Okay we just tested on our end and everything worked. I’ll take you through the steps we made…
define (‘WPLANG’, ‘en_EN’);
define (‘WPLANG’, ‘de_DE’);
That’s it! Let me know if you have any further questions…
Hi, I have a question, In the Menu I’m not able to add the categories.
Hi there! Thanks for being a customer
Just for clarification, when editing your menus, are you unable to see the categories in the WordPress backend? Or is it that after you add categories to the menu, they don’t appear when viewing your website?
THANK YOU I HAVE SOLVED. A QUESTION: HOW DO YOU TURN ON THE HOME SCREEN NEWS FLOWING?
If you’re referring to the slideshow (like the one on our homepage), the first thing you want to do is set your homepage to be a “static” page. Here are the directions for doing that:
After you have made your homepage a “static” page, you can edit the “home” page you created from step 1, then use the “Slider Settings” (beneath the main text editor) to add a news slider. That’s it!
Let me know if you have any questions or if I misunderstood your issue…
Thank you Jarrod. how to realise the solution called Home-grid?
There are a couple of options for creating a page that looks like our “Home – Grid”. To get started, create a new page (or edit an existing one) and…
Hi, great template, thanks!
I get an abuse message from the hoster. the item that is abuse is in template folder staggerly/images. Can you please help me to solve?
Thnaks in advance
Hi there, thanks for the kind words!
How strange! Can you tell me more about the “abuse message”? I’ve never heard of that happening before. The files in that sub-directory are just images (no executable files). Hmmm…
If you wouldn’t mind, please use the contact form on our profile page to send the full message from your host. Thanks
Hi, I am sorry to bother you but I am really helpless:) Everything is working great with Staggerly but since yesterday I have problems when I want to change a font/typography in Appearence sheet it´s still showing Error message. I can not change anything connected with appearence. I checked if I have css sheet but it looks ok. What could be a problem?
Hi there, verco! There’s no need to be sorry
Hmm… let me ask a few questions first…
When you get a moment, answer the questions above and we’ll go from there
Hi. How do you translate the “Recent Items” found in the main page – or any other untranslated items? Thanks in advance.
Hi there, Jacob!
There is a way to translate WordPress themes to your own language, and this is the best tutorial that I have found.
WordPress’s solution for translating themes is a bit more cumbersome than it should be, but the tutorial I linked is fairly easy to understand and thorough.
I would like to embed just a part of a youtube clip. If I use the following start en end time: http://www.youtube.com/v/Y7mJYwNHGwk?version=3&start=1&end=69&autoplay=0&hl=en_US&rel=0
It works in my browser. However if I copy and paste this link into the ‘Featured Video Settings’ in the Staggerly theme or if I want to use it in a youtube shortcode it doesn’t work, the video won’t play. Is there a solution for this?
Hi there, Adriaan!
You know, you’re the first person to find this issue! Although we don’t update the Staggerly theme very often anymore (due to how old it is), we’ll make an exception because this feature should have been present from the beginning. We’ll submit an update to fix this issue by the end of the week
Thank you very much!
No problem! I completely forgot to tell you that the update was ready but you probably already figured that out
One more question. I’m setting my website up with posts in chronological order about the second world war. The first post on top is the oldest (beginning of the war), the second post is a bit further in time etc. On the single post now, the buttons on top say previous post and next post. They link to older and newer posts. Hower I want to see that in reverse. The newest post (in wp time) must be the oldest (in history). How can I change the code so the two buttons work in reverse order?
Hope you can help me with that.

There are two ways you can do it…
If you’re comfortable editing code, you can edit the single.php within our theme (or if you’re using a child theme, make a copy of it, put it into the child theme directory, and edit it).
On line 74, change previous_post_link to next_post_link.
On line 75, change next_post_link to previous_post_link.
var prev_link = $('#page_caption .post-links a[rel="prev"]').attr('href');
var next_link = $('#page_caption .post-links a[rel="next"]').attr('href');
$('#page_caption .post-links a[rel="prev"]').attr('href', next_link);
$('#page_caption .post-links a[rel="next"]').attr('href', prev_link);
Be sure to save changes.
Either of those options should work
Works brilliant! Again thank you very much!
No problem! Happy to help
Hi there, I bought this theme last year as part of the bundles deal and only just come to use it but its way out of date. I am using 1.7.6 version. Can I upgrade?
Hi there, Muckajay!
Thanks for buying the bundle and making it a success
As for updating, unfortunately no. Themeforest does not allow purchasers of bundles to update their themes until after buying the full version.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Thats a bit rubbish, means I cannot use a theme I purchased. There are so many issues with the version I have that it is not viable to use so anyone who ever wants to buy bundles I recommend they don’t. I will put my thoughts on this to themeforest as I feel I have been ripped off. You have had money for a design that is now useless. Bad business indeed.
We understand your frustration and we’re sorry that you’re unhappy.
Just for clarification:
If you decide to contact Envato/Themeforest with your grievances, it may be helpful to ask them to make the aforementioned points clearer to prospective buyers.
Again, sorry for your frustration and unhappiness.
Yeah so what you are trying to say is this is not your problem, sticking the middle finger up at anyone who purchased the bundle as you obviously don’t give a **
I will remember that when making my next purchases of themes and will definitely make sure people shy away from bundles, which people purchase not just for a good deal but to support the authors too.
Shame you don’t see it that way, but your loss. I shall not be using any of your themes in future.
If I didn’t care, I wouldn’t have replied at all. I could have ignored your post, I could could have written a condescending reply, I could have done any number of things other than writing a lengthy and thorough reply… but I didn’t. I replied to you in the hopes that I could help by explaining policies that we have no power to change.
But you’re frustrated. And this may simply be an instance where my efforts will never be enough.
I wish you the best.
Hi, i’m interested in your template. I would like to know, is the template available in Italian? Thanks.
Hello, why the live preview is diferent? Now is another template? Thanks
Hi, Using your template with a lot of pleassure… but. The images folder growing to big… how can I supervise (change) the amount of images (sizes). It saved 12 files now.. I want to reduce it to max 3?
Hi there! Glad you’re enjoying the theme
I created a small plugin that should help. Download this plugin and then install/activate it. The plugin won’t remove images that have already been uploaded, but it will prevent 8 of the size variations from being created when new images are uploaded.
Hope that helps!
Does the current version of the theme work with Wordpress 4.5.3?
Does anyone know the answer to this?
Hi there, mikele10!
Though the Staggerly theme is no longer supported, it does indeed work with WP v4.5.3. We just upgraded our demo site to 4.5.3, so feel free to take a look:
Thanks for the reply Jarrod. Currently I’m running Version 2.3.2 So if I update Staggerly to Version 2.3.5 (April 26, 2015) and then update Wordpress 4.5.3 I should be okay?
Yeah, the theme should be fine. Just make sure that your plugins are compatible. If so, yep, you should be ok
And yes, that’s exactly the order I would recommend: theme first, WP second.
Awesome thanks for your helps Jarrod. And just to confirm where can I find the theme update docs? Just want to be sure I do it right.
The update documentation for Staggerly is here, but I’d actually recommend looking at the documentation for the Matador theme as it’s more up-to-date and thorough.
