    hi, starter shortcode did not appear. only blank box pop up. how to fix this? pls help. tq

    • Milomir Topić

      I have the same problem, do you find any solution

  • ArifulMd

    can i use it for my personal website?

  • Mark Vincent

    Dear developer,

    When I insert shortcodes [zee_service category="0" column="3" number="3"] and [zee_team] to make up the frontpage as in your example, the and tags are missing. It now reads

    Could you help me out?

    Kind regards, Mark Vincent

    • Mark Vincent

      To answer my own question for anybody that was wondering (since support seems to be on a permanent vacation), the correct notation is:

      [zee_container class="orange" id="services"][zee_service category="0" column="3" number="3"][/zee_container]

      Notice the “container” shortcode around the section.

  • Anis Thoha Manshur

    Thank you shapebootstrap, I’ve download it and try use for my company website. Nice

  • Mark Vincent

    Dear developer,

    How do I make the Slider (carousel) on the Frontpage Autostart? Now it sits there untill a visitor clicks on either arrow.

    Thanks

    • elurew

      So… on page-frontpage.php, replace

      with

      i realize its not ideal since an update will overwrite it… but it works!

      • Mark Vincent

        Works perfectly. Thanks for the support. I suppose controlling the speed could be done by an adjustment to one of the bootstrap js?

        • elurew

          yup, in the main.js file, you’ll find a jquery call to .carousel which will have an interval designation of i believe 8000 (8 sec). You can change that and re-update.

    • Selina Bradley

      I thought you might be interested in knowing that, in my own analytics, sliders that require the user to interact convert higher than ones that auto-rotate.

  • nudinzek

    hi dear developer, thanks so much for your great theme. but i got one problem – shortcode generator not working. how to fix this? pls.

  • Amarnath Jaganathan

    Nice theme. Would be great if there is a provision for Social Widgets.

  • Mark Vincent

    I wish there was support for this theme. I can’t get the Contact Form to work :(

    • http://hotsnow.fi Hot Snow

      Have you got the form to work? Can you share your knowledge?

      • Mark Vincent

        Hey Hot Snow. No, I never got it to work. Used Gravity Forms instead.

        • http://hotsnow.fi Hot Snow

          Thanks Mark, I will try to use them too, was it difficult?

          • elurew

            did you end up needing to create a different page then? i created “contact” and this form seems to just overwrite it… getting an error on form submission that function zee_option() is undefined? even though i see it in functions.php

            not too familiar with adding functions… is it defined improperly?

          • Mark Vincent

            Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I think the best way to implement this theme is to copy the Frontpage Page Template (page-frontpage.php) and rename it to something like Default Theme Page (page-themepage.php) and strip all of the slider stuff.

            That way you can select that page template when you want to use your Form. If you got Gravity Forms you can simply use the shortcode in the content like so:
            [gravityform id="1" name="My Form" description="true" ajax="true"]

            Be sure to put the Flat Theme shortcode for a section around it and you will have a spiffy form page.

        • josean

          So… the contact page doesn´t work?
          What about use conta form 7?

      • Thiago

        I have made the Contact Form work by modify the following file:
        flat-theme/assets/js/main.js @line 42;
        It seems the jquery .post() method is missing data from the form, so change the line
        from:
        $.post($(this).attr(‘action’), function(data) {
        $this.prev().text(data.message).fadeIn().delay(3000).fadeOut();
        },’json’);
        to :
        $.post($(this).attr(‘action’), $(‘.contact-form’).serialize(), function(data) {
        $this.prev().text(data.message).fadeIn().delay(3000).fadeOut();
        },’json’);

        Also it seems like the sendemail.php file also got an error on the line that acquires the send to email address from the theme configuration, however, I did not bother to fix the configuration, instead, I just assigned the following variable the admin email.
        $email_to = ‘your@email.com';

        Finally you may also want to check the there is an name error in which in the form is “url” but in the sendemail.php is “subject”, but you can rename or redesign the form anyway.

          Thanks, I’ll try it.

        do you know how to fix it? thanks in advance

        • Thiago

          Aat, try checking the names (name=””) in the contact form and sendmail.php. I had the same problem only with the content of the message, and I needed to put a name=”message” into his tag.

    Nice theme. Thank you shapebootstrap

      You are welcome :)

  • Dariusz Młynarski

    The theme is great, except one thing missing. Is there an option to set a regular page with left or right sidebar, like in the blog page? Advice apreciated :)

    • Ryan Bonhardt

      @dmlynarski:disqus how did you activate the sidebar? I can’t figure it out

      • Dariusz Młynarski

        I did it here: http://sites.wellu.eu/ . I used a child theme and I created a new page template including sidebar in its code. Looked in the blog template and copied the fragment of the code and pasted it in an appropriate place in a page template. Here is my child theme as an example, you can use it as it is: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30580657/flat-child.zip

        • Ryan Bonhardt

          Thanks for this and found it actually after sending. Didn’t know there was a widget area for the sidebar

        • http://evilrobot.co.uk Chris James

          AWESOME – Thanks for sharing Darusz – I was having real problems getting my sidebar to show on the right. Now I have seen yours I know where I went wrong.

  • Selina Bradley

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

    • http://shapebootstrap.net/ ShapeBootstrap

      The style.css file is available. Please download again.

      • Selina Bradley

        Thanks!

  • Bjarne Carstensen

    The responsive work is crap. It looks awful on smartphone.

  • Travis Glover

    There is a problem with the mobile menu. To show children of a menu item you must click the tiny arrow instead of just clicking on the name. Also when viewing a page that is a child of a menu item, only the parent is selected and is collapsed in the menu.

    • Travis Glover

      I made sure this was not a nav-walker issue checking with the mainainer: https://github.com/twittem/wp-bootstrap-navwalker/issues/78

      I really like the theme but for our needs this is a deal breaker.

      • Travis Glover

        I was able to fix this by changing some simple css. ul li span.menu-toggler Change width:100%; and text-align:right;

        I suggest you change the themes code because this is a very simple fix to a very bad problem.

  • Kevin

    Seems like the tab function is having a problem with paragraphs

    It completely ignores them and putting the text in one line.

    I’m using WordPress 3.8.1

    I’ve tried to write various paragraphs in the text code (just to test) where you can actually write the tags and if saving it it seems to work. But though when changing between the normal editor and “html code editor” WordPress are removing them which is a default thing for WordPress. (already know that)

    Anyone having some ideas what’s going wrong? If it’s a bug in the theme?? (considering when you’re not looking about changing between the editors tabs)

    Hola!
    I’d like to remove the slider from my homepage because it takes a looooot of space but I have no clue how to do it. Can someone tell me if there is a simple way to do so or what I have to add/delete in the editor or the “custom css”.
    I don’t really know CSS so I couldn’t figure it out myself.

    Thanks!!!!

    • Henry TheEighth

      Go to Sliders on the left nav in WordPress, set all Sliders to Draft. Then, in the custom.css add:

      #main-slider .prev, #main-slider .next{display:none, left:-90000} /*hide it and/or move the elements off the screen*/

  • Henry TheEighth

    Wow, so – I’d say that this theme is near to what I’d class as a waste of time. Essentially, I have a blog displayed on a page ‘About Us’ – but the source for the page in edit mode shows different content! Yet, your help docs say nothing about how to manage blogs and menus.

  • Henry TheEighth

    Good for testing multisite and demo, but wouldn’t use this theme for real world live websites.

  • mindburp

    I’ve enjoyed learning with this (FREE, remember people) theme using a child theme. I’ve been able to do everything I wanted so far, but am stuck on what I thought would be simple.

    I simply want to edit the labels to replace all references of “Portfolio(s)” with “Gallery(ies).” How can I override the add_action function with the labels for Post type: Portfolio (functions.php line 435) in my child theme?

    Is there a better way to do this? I know I could edit the parent functions.php, but my goal is to keep everything isolated to learn.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hmm, I looked at Resurrection, it doesn’t seem to be compatible
    with WP 2.3.2. It doesn’t have widgetized sidebars, and requires the UTW
    plugin (doesn’t work in the latest WP since tags are now supported).
    Too bad, it is a nice dark theme otherwise.

    Some of the rest, though, wow. Great collection for a theme addict like me. Thanks!

    Hi every body. how we can make next and previous image work on portfolio ( prettyphoto ) ? it doesn’t work as default.

  • Gir.cat

    No way to make child theme works out. Definitely something wrong.

    I’m using WP 3.9.1
    Any example?

    • Dariusz Młynarski

      Hi, @Gir.cat. I’ve created a child theme that works well. You can dowlnoad and use it as it is from here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30580657/flat-child.zip .

      • Gir.cat

        Hi!

        Thanks for your help, but it still doesn’t work for us. Actually, the situation is:

        – If I upload it through FTP –> It doesn’t appear in the themes WP menu (I uploadet unzipped,of course)

        – If I upload it through WP admin –> It regognizes that its father theme is “Flat 1.3.8″. I think this is the mail problem because this isn’t your theme but this one: https://wordpress.org/themes/flat

        So, I assume that the official Flat theme for WP is the other one, the one in the official repository, so your theme gets somehow overridden. I Also tried changing the name of your theme and the child, but still doesn’t work.

        Thanks,

        • Dariusz Młynarski

      Here’s what you need to do. It all depends on what your theme folder is called. If you kept the same name for the theme folders, then the theme folders should be called “flat-theme” and “flat-theme-child.”

      Go to the “flat-theme-child” folder. Open the “style.css” file.

      In the commented /* */ area, you need to have the following:
      Text Domain: flat-theme
      Template: flat-theme

      Those are directing to the “flat-theme” folder. You also need to change the import url to this:

      @import url(‘../flat-theme/style.css’);

      Save the CSS file and upload it into the “flat-theme-child” folder on your website. This will work.

  • Ale Dal Piva

    Hi! Awesome theme. I have a question. Is possible use FancyBox to open gallery image?

    If I open a picture in the gallery automatically open two lightbox, one of bootrap and one of fancybox.

    Example: http://goo.gl/9N0W0P

    Thanks Ale.

    • Ale Dal Piva

      Ho risolto commentando queste righe in function.php

      // adding prettyPhoto each gallery item

      /* add_filter( ‘wp_get_attachment_link’, function( $content, $id, $size, $permalink ){

      if( !$permalink ){

      $content = preg_replace(“/<a/","

      return $content;

      }

      }, 10, 5);

      You can add this :

      to your header.php just before

    Hello, guys, I found how to make slider autoplay, myabe it will be useful for smb. So first of all find the doc main.js at the folder ‘assets/js’, change there interval 8000 to 3000 or whatever, your slider will be faster and if you want that it will start automatically find the doc page-frontpage.php and add data-ride=”carousel” to the div (56 string)

        • Ming Teoh

          edit style.css look for “#main-slider .next” and remove “margin-top: -25px;”. works for me

  • James M.

    Is it possible to remove the “zee_{item}” from URLs? For example, I’m using the Yoast SEO plugin and they auto generate links to items like Testimonials. So the URL for a testimonial is mydomain.com/zee_testimonial/john-smith – could I change zee_ to mydomain_ or something similar? Possibly by editing something in functions.php?

    Hey Guys,

    First of all – I think your theme is fantastic! I have been tweaking the design a bit, and I am now having a problems with my blog.

    URL: http://www.usergrowthpartners.com/blog

    Problem 1: I am not able to get comments to show-up. Could I have deleted something in the PHP file? If so, do you have any idea what line of code my have taken the comments off the page?

    Problem 2: When clicking into the post – (for example, from http://www.usergrowthpartners.com/blog, if I click on the ‘leave a comment’ button on one of the posts) – I get redirected to a new url where the header of the post says “blog” and the line underneath says “Blog sub-title”

    I’ve spent almost an entire day trying to figure these two things out. If anyone has an idea of how to fix them, it’d help a lot!

    Thank you
    Scott

      The child theme works, you need to add the following to the child themes style.css

      ‘Template: flat-theme’ in the header of the css fil.

    Hello there! Anyone can tell me how to add the 3 columns that comes after the slider? many many thanks!

  • Andriamanitra

    Hello guys,

    Thank you for this theme. This is wondeful.

    However, I have 2 problems and hope you can help :

    1. Slider can’t autoplay.
    As suggested by AnArchiiie99 2 months ago, I added this :

    $(‘[data-slide-to=0′).trigger(‘click’);

    to my header.php just before . But it still doesn’t work.

    2. I don’t receive emails via the contact form. Where should I put my e-mail address ? I’ve put it in ‘theme options/contact’. I’ve tried to find the function so that I could try to change some lines of code but I couldn’t find it.

    Can someone help please ?

    Thanks a lot.

    John (France)

    • Thiago

      I have made the Contact Form work by modify the following file:
      flat-theme/assets/js/main.js @line 42;
      It seems the jquery .post() method is missing data from the form, so change the line
      from:
      $.post($(this).attr(‘action’), function(data) {
      $this.prev().text(data.message).fadeIn().delay(3000).fadeOut();
      },’json’);
      to :
      $.post($(this).attr(‘action’), $(‘.contact-form’).serialize(), function(data) {
      $this.prev().text(data.message).fadeIn().delay(3000).fadeOut();
      },’json’);

      Also it seems like the sendemail.php file also got an error on the line that acquires the send to email address from the theme configuration, however, I did not bother to fix the configuration, instead, I just assigned the following variable the admin email.
      $email_to = ‘your@email.com';

      Finally you may also want to check the there is an name error in which in the form is “url” but in the sendemail.php is “subject”, but you can rename or redesign the form anyway….

  • Spanka

    Quick one for anyone trying to use the packaged “Flat Theme Child” as of 4 October 2014. The style.css file is missing the following from the header block:

    Template: flat-theme

    Official codex doco: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes – just look for the first code block example to see what’s missing.

    First lines inside the comment should end up like this:

    Theme Name: Flat Theme Child
    Theme URI: http://shapebootstrap.net/
    Template: flat-theme
    Author: the ShapeBootstrap team

    • wippetywu

      In addition to that, the @import line should be: @import url(‘../flat-theme/style.css’);

      More importantly, the functions.php file in the PARENT theme needs to be modified for the child theme’s style.css to work. There’s one line referencing ‘style.css’–you should change the whole line to:
      wp_enqueue_style(‘style’, get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’);

      (Previously, it incorrectly used get_template_directory_uri instead of get_stylesheet_directory_uri.)

    Could you possibly help me on an issue on one of your theme ?
    I’m using the ‘Flat Theme’. It’s a really great theme. Fully customizable.

    But I found a little issue on the slider : I can’t have it autoplay. Besides, I can’t find how to change the sliding ‘interval’ of time.

    Thank you in advance for your answer. You’re great.

    I’ve created my testimonials, but how do I display them?

    • http://extremewebdesign.biz Tim Berneman

      I figured out how to add my testimonials and thought I would share so if anyone else needed to know how to do it.

      1st – Add your testimonial(s) by clicking “Testimonials” link in the same section as Sliders, Portfolios, and Accordions on the left side in the WordPress Admin menu.

      2nd – Next add a new Testimonials page, click on the red “[ ]” icon in the toolbar and add a “Testimonial starter shortcode” under the “Select a Shortcode” dropdown and click the “Add Shortcode” button and save the page.

      3rd – Under Appearance->Menus add the Testimonials page you just created to your menu and save your new menu.

      NOTE: This will work for those other types like FAQ, Portfolio, Accordion, etc.
