    Hello,

    I am having trouble after installing Sparkle to get it to look like the Demo site. I have loaded the xml file but for whatever reason I can’t get it to work.

    Also, I had previously purchased another wordpress theme a few months ago, and I like some of the features in that theme. If I send you a screenshot of some of the things I like would you be able to do some customisation work for me and add some new features/design to sparkle.

    Thanks in advance. I think this is a great theme.

    Yes, I followed these instructions in the documentation:

    Import and Setup Sample Data

    The theme comes with Sample data (just like the theme preview) that allow you to create some dummy content to your site to help you get started with the theme .

    2.1 How to Import the sample data?

    You can find the sample-data.xml file inside theme package.
    Login to WordPress , in Left Menu go to Tools -> Import
    Choose WordPress, if the plugin haven’t not been installed , the popup window will show up and just click Install Now.
    click Activate Plugin & Run Importer
    Click choose and browse to the sample-data.xml
    Click upload file and import,
    Wait a few seconds .

    2.2 Adding sample Theme Option settings

    Copying the content in option-settings.txt and paste it into Theme Options -> Backup & Restore -> Transfer Theme Options Data then hit Import Options.

    However, nothing is the same as shown in the documentation. The Home-Custom layout doesn’t show correctly, the colour categories do not show. I want to be able to have the same layouts as shown in the demo.

    I can create an account for you to have a look and maybe you can find where I may have gone wrong, but I did follow the instructions.

    Thanks

    What I am looking for to be added is an easier way to customize the home page layouts.

    You currently have this

    [row]

    [column class=" col-sm-6"][post_list title=”Business” style=”mixed” cat=”57″ tags=”” count=”4″ exclude_format=”” order=”DESC” orderby=”date” time_period=”default” show_icon=”true” show_cat=”true” show_date=”true”][/column]

    [column class=" col-sm-6"][post_list title=”Social Media” style=”mixed” cat=”47″ tags=”” count=”4″ exclude_format=”” order=”DESC” orderby=”date” time_period=”default” show_icon=”true” show_cat=”true” show_date=”true”][/column]

    [/row]

    [row]

    [column class=" col-sm-6"][post_list title=”Life/Living” style=”mixed” cat=”63″ tags=”” count=”4″ exclude_format=”” order=”ASC” orderby=”date” time_period=”default” show_icon=”true” show_cat=”true” show_date=”true”][/column]

    [column class=" col-sm-6"][post_list title=”Entertainment” style=”mixed” cat=”68″ tags=”” count=”4″ exclude_format=”” order=”DESC” orderby=”date” time_period=”default” show_icon=”true” show_cat=”true” show_date=”true”][/column]

    [/row]

    [row]

    [column class=" col-sm-6"][post_list title=”World” style=”mixed” cat=”52″ tags=”” count=”4″ exclude_format=”” order=”DESC” orderby=”date” time_period=”default” show_icon=”true” show_cat=”true” show_date=”true”][/column]

    [column class=" col-sm-6"][post_list title=”Sample Heading” style=”mixed” cat=”68″ tags=”” count=”4″ exclude_format=”” order=”ASC” orderby=”random” time_period=”default” show_icon=”true” show_cat=”true” show_date=”true”][/column]

    [/row]

    This is not working for me…there has to be any easier way such as a page builder that will allow me to create multiple layout options. For example, this theme http://cubellthemes.com/demos/?product=valenti has multiple styling options such as light and dark backgrounds for Hip Hop and Design options – like to post two across like the music section. Also for the boxed theme could you create a clear edge/border.

    Thanks

    Thank you for your support. This is a great theme and I look forward to the updates.

    I tried to add the border shadow but it is not working for me. This is what I have in the custom ccd.

    /* Custom CSS */

    .site-footer .yt-categories-descendants-widget ul{
    text-transform:uppercase;
    }
    @media (max-width: 991px){
    body{
    font-size: 16px;
    }
    }
    .boxed-layout #page{
    box-shadow: 0 0 30px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 30px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 30px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    }

    Hi,

    I just purchased the WordPress theme Sparkle but am having a lot of trouble setting up the theme. It’s getting to be really frustrating because I really need to be focused on posting not theme settings. I followed all documentation interactions but still have to no luck and now my site looks horrible with code everywhere.

    Is there a way you can setup the theme for me just like the demo? I would really appreciate it! I could give you my WordPress login info. 🙂

    I also haven been getting any help or reply backs.

    Is it possible to have the homage layout only as wide page and the rest of the site in boxed view?

    Also, how do I change the background colour of the sidebars.

    Creating blocks would be a much better option and more user friendly for your purchasers that do not have expert level wordpress knowledge. Shortcode generator is not going to work for me and post people having trouble configuring this great design theme.

    I am sure you have had a look at other themes on themeforest. Check this theme out. http://themeforest.net/item/quadrum-multipurpose-newsmagazine-theme/7205094 very user friendly and a great theme. I stopped using this great theme to move to yours. I would hate to have to move back because of the difficulty configuring this theme. I will give you some time but if things do not improve in terms of user friendliness and a few more options then I would have to move back to another theme and request a refund.

    Thank you.

    Find attached how easy the above link I posted allows people to create a block.
