Hi, I would translate the post meta (“Posted by”) into my language, where can I change them?

Hello Fabricaruso,

Translation can be done in two ways – By editing PO files using POEdit Software, or by using translation plugins like qTranslateX or Loco Translate. If your site is not Multi Lingual, I would recommend using Loco Translate. Using this plugin you can transate all theme stringsinto your language using user interface.

If you want to use the poEdit method, kindly refer to the documentation file’s translation section.

Does it fully support RTL?

Hello i-Ry5,

Thank you for browsing the theme. Yes, it fully supports RTL. You can also check out the NewsPlus theme which is RTL ready and has more options as compared to Volt.

I see this theme hasn’t received an update since Oct 24, 2017. Does the theme support Wordpress 5 and/or Gutenburg?

Hello JeA8,

The theme is fully compatible and tested upto WordPress 5.1 and php 7.1.9. Kindly update the theme to latest version and check if the error persists.

Also, is theme compatible with php 7? An older version on a client’s site is getting these types of errors only with php 7: Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function split() in /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-content/themes/site/functions.php:640 Stack trace: #0 /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-content/themes/site/featured.php(41): volt_page_titles() #1 /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-includes/template.php(690): require(’/home/user/...’) #2 /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-includes/template.php(647): load_template(’/home/user/...’, false) #3 /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-includes/general-template.php(155): locate_template(Array, true, false) #4 /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-content/themes/site/single.php(21): get_template_part(‘featured’) #5 /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-includes/template-loader.php(74): include(’/home/user/...’) #6 /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-blog-header.php(19): require_once(’/home/user/...’) #7 /home/user/public_html/dev/index.php(17): require(’/home/user/...’) #8 {main} thrown in /home/user/public_html/dev/wp-content/themes/site/functions.php on line 640

Hi, I love Volt design!! One question before shopping, allow smartphone and tablet zooming?

Hello m_aminna,

Thank you for browsing the theme. Yes it is possible to enable zooming for tablet and mobile. Right now it is set to zoom at maximum scale of 100%. If you want I can change this for you at your end.

Theme does not work

Hello abo-alaa,

Thank you for purchasing the theme. Can you please describe what is not working. Like, you are seeing installation error or improper layout, or any error message.

Regards

Why did you let it die? (no updates)

Hello,

The theme is still supported and compatible with latest version of WordPress. If you have any specific issues please let me know. Updates will be released if there are any issue with the current version.

Hello – my client has your theme on their website. They need to update their PHP version to 7 as it is currently on 5.6. However the theme they are using is version 1.9 and is not compatible. Is there a version higher than this, is it PHP version 7 compatible and if we bought the latest version and uploaded it are there many alterations we need to be aware of? Thank you in anticipation of your help. I look forward to your earliest response. Kind regards

Deborah Carr

Hello Deborah,

The current version is 3.9.4 which is compatible with php 7 and above. If you update to the latest version, you may see some style changes. You can see the live demo for reference. The current version looks like this.

Not able to view the preview of the theme properly.

Hi. Is there an update for this theme. I bought it a few years ago. I would pay for the update.

Hello,

An update has been released now.

Regards

Hi. Great. How do I get the update?

Hello,

You can download latest version of the theme from your themeforest account’s downloads page. You will need to update the theme manually by uploading the zip file or via FTP.

Hi, Saurabh,

I’ve been a happy user of Volt for my website for the past eight or so years, but upgrades at my host have forced me to do a big upgrade to the current version.

I’m glad to see that most of it has survived the transition. But there are a few problems with three things so far:

1) The logo in the header no longer appears. Your generic one is in place but doesn’t allow itself to be replaced.

2) The main menu is visible, but the top menu doesn’t appear.

3) The footer is no longer there.

Wordpress 5.3 PHP 7.4.6 Volt 3.8.1

Thanking you in advance for your help

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for using the theme for so long. The site still looks fresh and clean. Please find my answers below to your queries:

1. Kindly check inside WordPress admin’s Appearance > Volt Options > Header > Custom Logo URL. This shall contain a valid logo file URL. After providing the file URL, save settings.

2. Top menu can be re-assigned inside Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations > Top Menu. Assign a menu of your choice to this location and save changes.

3. Footer widget areas can be configured inside Appearance > Widgets > Default Secondary Column 1,2,3 and so on. The main footer text can be set inside Appearance > Volt Options > Footer > Custom Footer Text.

Let me know if you find any further difficulty.

Regards

Hi, Saurabh,

The problem was all these things were already set up, but nothing I did in the Volt Options panel seemed to make any difference. I’ve solved the problem by dropping the PHP version back to PHP 5.6 – anything higher than that appears to break the site. Hopefully the upcoming update will fix this. Thanks

Hello Andrew,

Make sure you are using the current version 3.9.4 of the theme. By looking at the site, your theme version is 3.8.1. The latest one is compatible with php 7.3.x.

Thank you for this great theme !

Do you know how to replace the button “Read More” (Lire la suite) by an image ?

https://www.doingbuzz.com Thank you very much :) please

Hello,

I think you have posted the query on wrong theme. I do not see “Volt” theme installed on your site.

Hi there. We are having an issue where the Volt Magazine default logo is showing on our site instead of our logo. All of our logo settings are correct on the backend, but for some reason it is not showing. Can you help? The website is fluidpowerjournal.com

Hello,

I just replied to your email.

Hi, We want to upload your Theme into Wordpress, but we get an error. Below see the message of an error. Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme installation failed. Thank you!

Hello Anton

Thank you for purchasing the theme. You might probably be installing the entire download package. Kindly download the “Installable WordPress file only” from the downloads page of your Envato Account. Or if you have downloaded the “All files and documentation”, then extrat the zip file on local machine. Inside that you shall find the volt.zip file. This is the actual file to be uploaded into WordPress.

Regards

Hello! How can I import the default data of this theme?

Hello,

Inside your main download’s dummy_data folder, you will see an XML file. You can import that file using WordPress importer plugin. You can also copy and paste plain text data from the text files inside that folder. When pasting plain text, use the code mode of the editor.

Regards

Thank you for your reply. I have installed the Theme as you said, but now I have another problem; In Header section the banner that is in the right side of a Logo is missing and also Volt Widgets are missing. How can I solve this problem? With best regards.

Hello Anton,

Kindly navigate to WordPress admin’s Appearance > Widgets. There you shall see a widget area named “Default Header Bar”. Inside this widget area you can paste your Google Ad code for leaderboard ad, or you can add a static image link using the image widget or HTML code.

Sidebar widgets can be added inside “Default Sidebar A” and “Default Sidebar B” widget areas. Similarly, footer widgets can be added inside “Default Secondary Column” widget areas.

Regards
