  • i had problems with the images too. heres what worked for me.

    1. make sure you have the latest version of wordpress installed
    2. remove any themes you dont really need
    3. disable wordpress firewall if you have it installed
    4. make your images 200×200 pixels. use irfanview if you dont have an editor. its free, just google it
    5. go to themes->editor->tab and change h=180&w=350& TO -> h=200&w=200& this will change your slideshow to more of a box. you can also change auto=2000 to auto=9000 for nine second delay
    5. if your sidebar box is off go to sidebar.php and change from the default 60&80

    this worked for me. ill be making a video tutorial on this theme because i really like it and plan on using it as a standard on my blogs as soon as i figure out some more stuff. i havnt found a real good tutorial yet and i was frustrated so im sure others are too.

    hope this helped

  • Kaosklub

    Since I use this theme, which I really love, Facebook updates appear with a bug, for example on my Facebook page you can see it:

    http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Kaos-Klub/119718264735755

    The bug is the following:
    Warning: call_user_func_array() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, ‘Array’ was given in /home7/kaosklub/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line…

    Any idea on how to fix it?

    Great Theme! I Love It! In scanning the posts I see several in here that ask the same questions over and over again. First: My images aren’t showing up in the slider or the “Popular Posts” section. Just convert the image you want as the “Featured” image to a .gif file. This is the simplest and easiest resolution. Second: How do I get the menu to work? This was an aha! I cant believe I missed it, moment. You have to go into the Dashboard > Appearance > Menus section and set up your menus. I did this and they still weren’t working, until I remembered that I didn’t set the “Primary” & “Secondary” menus and click “Save”. Duh! Works perfectly.

      Thank You 🙂

    • You’re site looks awesome, how did you get the picture on your header?

      • Anonymous

        I just edit the JPG in the image folder for the header. It is simple and works well as long as you dont change the dimensions of the image.

        • Rodolfo Rodrigues

          Thanks for your explanation. After reading it was very easy to use menu. I was about to give up using the theme. You’re awesome. Big hug.

    • Ashou786

      thanks for your help! i got the menu to work because of your post! however i wanted to ask how u got the drop-down child pages to show up???

      • Anonymous

        When you go in to edit the menu under appearance you just need to drag the menu item to the child position. It will be indented slightly to the right. If you have trouble just be patient and slowly move the menu bar until you see the dotted line in the correct place. It is very simple, which is the problem, sometimes are so simple we don’t even notice them. If you need a screenshot just send me you email and I can send you a screenshot or a little video of how to do it.

        • Morgan

          The child issue is driving me crazy! I drag it over and it is indented. When I hit “save”, its puts it back as a primary, not saving it in the child position. Any suggestions?

        • Anonymous

          Send me a quick note and I will send you a little video in the morning to show you how to do it. I think I had the same problem at first. lbanry at gmail dot com

    • Ashou786

      also how did you edit your slider background?? i also wanted to change mine to a beach scene

      • Anonymous

        Glad I could help. To edit any of the images, just go to the images folder in the downloaded package for for the theme and then edit the images directly there. Just be sure not to change the proportions. Then all you have to do it upload the modified images directly into the images folder in your theme on your server (wordpress-or root folder/wp-content/themes/calypso/images) then refresh your browser and viola!

  • Great theme, I’m still in the process of creating my site. I’ve just about figured out most things I want to fiddle with in the theme, however there’s a conflict with certain plugins and the image slider. Somebody has already commented above, in my case I want to use the cforms plugin, but whenever it is activated the image slider just displays the first slide, the button’s don’t work and a list of bullet points appear down the right side.
    Any advice on getting the theme to work with cforms activated? Or can anybody suggest a good customisable contact form?
    Thanks in advance!

  • AKSTHA

    Slider is not working i can’t figure it out any one please help me with this problem my email id is: anilkstha@gmail.com

    • Anonymous

      First theme I used with a slider I had to download the wp-slider plugin and activate it. That worked for me. Although I didnt have to do it on this theme. Give it a try. THe other problem is the images themselves. On this theme it appears that the Featured Listing and the SLider image only work if you use a GIF. Hope that helps.

  • please check out my blog http://x.co/B7eaB7ea

    the slider is nt wrkin 🙁

      Tried to look, but it just goes to godaddy. Look at my comment right below yours to Akstha’s question. That might help you.

    If i put he mouse on the previous or next button on the slider, the url ends by a “#”. Anyboby knows this problem ?

    Can u help me ? Thank u very much !

  • Bburke

    I really like this theme, but I’m having a problem adjusting the timing from one slide to the next. It’s moving to fast. If it can be slowed down for an additional 4-6 seconds, it would be great. Does anyone have any info on how to make the adjustment?

    • TM

      Was able to adjust the speed in the tab.php file of the theme manually. You’ll see it in the code near the top and can play around until you find a speed you like.

  • Ed Wilde

    Hi, i’d like to use this in a static wordpress site so only use pages and not posts, but I can’t see where the carousel displays featured pages, which is what I need. Any ideas on how to do this, or is it something you might put in the future? Cheers. Dee

    I have too many posts on each section and it only shows the most recent ones. It is important to me that the readers can access all of them. Thank you for your attention.

    Hi, I posted the same on the forum but got no answer. I’d like to manage adsense myself, but this theme doesn’t seems to work with any plugin I tried so far. In particular, no ad is showing on the homepage through the plugins I tried. Is there a way to fix this?

  • Tiziano

    Great theme, thanks, worked for me…

  • I know this has been discussed a couple of times, but I am not understanding what you mean by the popular post and featured image connection. I am setting the featured image no problem, but all I am getting is a white box with red cross next to the popular post and featured image……….no image being displayed?? http://www.42inch.co.uk

  • Raj

    How do I reduce the speed of scrolling. It is too fast. Also How do I remove the scrolling part.

  • Was wondering if there is a way to have archival pages show thumbnail images like the main page posts do? Seems odd to leap to a category or such and have the entries just be text?

  • Rebekah

    Hey,

    I love the theme except I have to choose to have either all my featured news on the front page or my articles won’t show up in the archives and galleries under topics.

    i.e. if I have six posts as featured news on landing page, six posts is all I get in a category page, even though there are more. How do I fix this?

    My site is http://www.unashamedlycreative.com.au
