    Hi

    I have install the “WP Nivo Slider” plugin and also go to Appearance = Startup Options, and tick the Universal Slider and save it. However, when I go to my site, I see this :

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function nivoslider4wp_show() in /home/uendic5/public_html/wp-content/themes/startupwp/header.php on line 55″

    My site is uendi.com

    I have a few questions and very appreciate as you can solve it for me :
    1. My menu bar is blue colour, I want my “Home” text to be white colour, no matter how I change, there is no reaction.
    2. How to wider the space for each text ? I mean for menu bar.
    3. How to move the search box in blue color to the header right top corner ?
    4. For this free version, is it available to add in small “login” box ? If can, then how ?
    5. If I want to add in some post to the Homepage, how to ?

    Thank you.

    Hello uendi,

    Looks like you created a topic 3 days ago of the same name which we answered, just wanted to make sure you saw that?:

    https://startupwp.com/topic/newbie/

    Looks like you have some different questions though.

    Slider. Just to be sure, is this the plugin you’re using?:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-nivo-slider/

    1. Use:

    nav .current-menu-item a, nav .current_page_item a {
      color: #FFFFFF;
      text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #333333;
    }

    2. Use:

    nav ul li a {
      padding: 0 25px;
    }

    3. Use:

    nav #searchform {
      margin: -40px 7px 0 0;
    }
    #wrapper nav #s {
      background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #0909B8;
    }

    4. Checkout this plugin:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/theme-my-login/

    5. Checkout a plugin like:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/posts-in-page/

    Contact Form. Apologies, not sure what you’re asking for this one.

    Since you’re on the free version, do make sure that you’re using a child theme so that you don’t lose your customizations upon upgrading:

    Hello,

    Yes, 3 days ago I have created a topic as newbie, as I have forgotten where is it so I created another topic. Hope you don’t mind. At that time, I have not tried using StartupWP Theme yet.

    Now, I have stepped into this theme, of course I have a lot of questions need to ask you as you know, I am totally with no code knowledge. I have installed WP Nivo Slider, but have not used it yet.

    By the way, where can I insert those shortcode given by you? Is it in child theme style.css ?

    Contact Forum. I have created a page “Contact Us”, then I copy and paste the adjusted contact form 7 to my page. Now I go to my site, I didn’t see anything from “Contact Us” menu bar ?

    I am sorry as my English is not good. For the above Contact Forum : I mean I have inserted contents in “Contact Us” page, but from my site, I am unable to see anything under Contact Us when I click on it.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I just want to check with you before deciding to purchase Pro, as if I am using StartupWP Pro theme, I only have to edit code by using Appearance => Startup Options => CSS menu. However, if I am using StartupWP theme, I can only edit code from the child theme (footer.php, function.php and etc).

    If I upload the StartupWP Pro Theme, will my existing code for StartupWP Theme lost?

    Thanks.

    No problem, just bookmark https://startupwp.com/user/uendi/ for future use and you can always track your account history there.

    Slider. Yes, the plugin needs to be activated and setup for this to work. I would just uncheck the slider option in your theme options until you’ve had a chance to do so.

    Contact Form. I assume you’re using?:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/

    You need to copy and paste the contact form shortcode into your “Contact Us” page content under Pages. Of course make sure to actually setup the contact form in the plugin’s settings.

    Upgrading. https://startupwp.com/topic/upgrading/ / https://startupwp.com/topic/installing-your-theme/ – If you upgrade to pro, all content and settings will seamlessly transfer to the pro theme. You’ll only have a problem if you’ve been editing files directly in the parent theme. One note though is that you’ll also have the pro slider plugin that you’ll need to setup:

    Helllo StartupWP,

    Very thank you for your reply.

    Contact Us : I have copy and paste the shortcode into my “Contact Us” page content under Pages, but when I go to my site, I find its very odd as I need to remove or hide one of them. My site is http://www.uendi.com. Please advise.

    2. I have go to Appearance => widget => click on Left Sidebar Widget Area, by adding and save it. However, from my site, I did not see any sidebar and I only want it to appear on “Contact Us” ?

    3. May I know where to set this up : http://prntscr.com/18bkag , as I want to set on the left side area on my “Contact Us” ?

    4. How to have this ” Enter search keyword ” with a small icon in the search box : http://prntscr.com/18bl0w ?

    5. From my site, you can see “Store”, how to remove those unwanted inside the “Store” ?

    6. By the way, how to adjust the space from the top to the menu bar : http://prntscr.com/18bm8g ?

    Thank you as I have been asking quite a lot questions for help. I never think of hiring a programmer as I want to learn as a beginner.

    1. Finally see what you mean, you need to turn off comments for that page. See:

    https://startupwp.com/topic/removing-comments-from-pages-and-posts/

    2. If you want a left sidebar on your “Contact Us” page you need to edit “Contact Us” under Pages and on the right of the page you’ll find a dropdown options “Page Template” that will allow you to set the Sidebar Left template.

    3. After you’ve setup 2, you can create a custom menu under Appearance > Menus and then drag the Custom Menu widget and assign it that menu, into the sidebar left area under Appearance > Widgets.

    4. This will require hacking the code via a child theme. Perhaps we save this one for later until you’re more comfortable using WordPress and themes?

    5. Refer to 1 on turning off comments.

    6. Here’s the default CSS:

    body {
      margin-top: 3%;
    }

    Lower or increase 3 as needed. Also, if you’ve picked up the Pro version, you can add CSS much more easily via:

    https://startupwp.com/topic/customizing-your-theme/

    Which is also a great resource to start learning as a beginner.

    Hello StartupWP,

    I have finally unzip the Pro version by using Winzip. After uploading, I didn’t activate it as show : http://prntscr.com/18npkz . Do I need to create any child theme to activate? By the way, I also saw a child theme from the unzip pro version?

    Thanks.

    Using a child theme is always optional, not necessary.

    If you plan on making only CSS customizations, your theme options will suffice:

    https://startupwp.com/topic/customizing-your-theme/

    If you need to edit PHP/HTML, you’ll need to setup a child theme:

    Hi StartupWP,

    Thank you for your advise.

    By the way, I have a few more questions while setting up my site, they are:-

    1. Please refer to this lightshot, http://prntscr.com/18p9rz . You can refer to this site where the color that I request from http://www.j-cube.com.sg/malls/website/category-shop.aspx ?
    2. I remember I have asked you this http://prntscr.com/18bkag, as I can’t find a way to setup this catagories ..? Is it I need to add a new page for Categories and link with Contact Us ?
    3. I would like to have color background, text message and so on for footer (eg http://prntscr.com/18pcm1) that part, so may I know how to insert that ?

    Thanks.

    1. Use:

    Site Title Spacing:

    #branding {
      margin-bottom: 30px;
    }

    Menu Background Gradient:

    nav {
      background: linear-gradient(#009DD5 0%, #009DD5 50%, #33D0FF 100%) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    }

    Remove Menu Item Borders:

    nav ul li a {
      border-right: 0 none;
    }

    Dropdown Menu Hover Background Color:

    nav ul li:hover ul li a:hover, nav ul ul li:hover ul li a:hover, nav ul ul ul li:hover ul li a:hover {
      background: #000 !important;
    }

    2. You’ll need to edit “Contact Us” under Pages and then change the template to “Sidebar Left”:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-attributes/

    You’ll then need to create a menu under Appearance > Menus.

    Finally, under Appearance > Widgets you can drag the “Menu Widget” to the main sidebar area and assign it the menu you’ve just created.

    3. Under Appearance > Widgets you can add widgets to the footer area.

    1. Use:

    nav ul li a:hover {
      border: 1px solid #000;
      box-shadow: none;
    }

    2. It might be a plugin like:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/list-category-posts/

    If you share the link to that page we could possibly glean what plugin is being used there, if it is at all and not a custom solution.

    3. Need to see your live site for this one, looks like you’re currently in maintenance mode.

    4. Use:

    .widget-title {
      border-bottom: 0 none;
    }
    .widget-container {
      background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #EEEEEE;
      padding: 5px 10px;
    }
    .widget-container a {
      background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #CCCCCC;
      border: 1px solid #666666;
      color: #666666;
      display: block;
      margin: 5px 0;
      padding: 5px;
      text-decoration: none;
    }

    Keep in mind that we’ve only used generic grayscale colors here, find the color codes you want to use here or use a similar tool:

    Hello,

    Thank you so much for your advise.

    My site is on live now, as you can go and view for it.

    As for the sidebar, I would like to adjust the space gap http://prntscr.com/19c085, http://prntscr.com/19c2le and also to add in the cursor triangle http://prntscr.com/19c1x7 ?

    I have put in the code .widget-container a { cursor: pointer; } or .widget-container a { cursor: e-resize; }, and I know there is something missing but I can’t figure out, please advise.

    Thank you.

    Hi uendi,

    It’s hard to keep track of all the things you need help with if you do not keep them itemized.

    It also appeared you’ve posted for help on .org which further confuses things.

    Please go ahead and start a new topic for the remaining set of customization requests that you have and we’ll be happy to help. Make sure to itemize like so:

    1.

    2.

    3.

    And remember to always share your website link in new topics.

    This topic is now closed. Thanks
