    Hi Joshua,

    I recently bought your theme and absolutely love it, however I am having a few minor issues and would be hugely grateful for some guidance (I have very limited experience with WordPress and creating websites).

    My live website is:

    Your demo site I am trying to replicate:

    There are 3 sections I am struggling with.
    1). On my About(your About Us), how do I get my image to be a slider (mine goes to another URL all together, rather than having arrows).. And it originally did not have the drop down History/Services/Achievement part either. Would be great to have 2 or 3 of those.

    2). On Services (your Our Services), how can I get 3 columns of information? And how can I get the horizontal lines above/below the little images?

    3). For Portfolio (your Recent Work section), when an image is clicked, it doesn’t bring an enlarged image +info, as the demo does. On the WP Dashboard, I have added a photo and information under the Portfolio section, but on the live version when it is clicked, it just greys out the background and puts an X in the middle of the screen.
    Also related, is it image size/dimensions that dictates if the images boxes will be the same size? (On your demo page, the images are all sized evenly, 3 per row.. and on mine, my logo is bigger than the catalogue).

    I know this is all a lot of finicky minor work for you to look in to and I really appreciate any help you can give. I’m really excited for my site to be much more polished (it is pretty rough looking right now).

    Thank you in advance,
    Elza

    Hi Elza,

    Glad you’re liking it so far!

    Edit: Sorry, my original response was for a different theme.

    I’d recommend importing demo data if you can. The documentation should cover this, but it involves going to Tools->Import and uploading the XML file from the Demo Content folder. This will give you all the demo content and make things a bit easier to start.

    If that’s not an option or you still need help, please feel free to post back here with your site link so we can see your site and any changes that need to be made.

    Hi,

    Thank you so much for the quick response.

    I won’t be home until later this evening, but to confirm (first time doing this), after downloading the theme folder from Themeforest, there is a folder called Demo Content which has an XML file that I can import?

    Imported by following this guide roughly:

    Or do you have documentation for your theme specifically? Perhaps I missed it and was too busy winging it :)

    Really appreciate your help,
    Elza

    Working through the documentation now and will re-upload the demo data to see what happens.

    I’ll get back to you soon.

    Thanks again Joshua.

    No problem! Please post back if you need any help after uploading or there’s something that’s not clearly explained in the docs.

    Hi Joshua,

    As an update, I downloaded a plugin called WordPress Database Reset (I figured it was an easy way to deleted everything I had on my page and have a clean restart), reset everything, re-selected Max theme, however when I imported the XML file, I got a lot of “already exists” (I will link the import message I received at the bottom of my message). I went to Settings>Reading, changed it to Slider Background.. and now when I load my page (which should be full of dummy demo data), photos only load for 10 seconds or so before disappearing, and I even have PHP messages written (under About>Team, once the photos disappear, “<?php echo Aenean Veque”).

    Happen to have any suggestions as what I should try next? Is there a better way to do a clean reset of the theme?

    Thank you again, I know this is all finicky silly issues for you to look in to, but.. I just want to get my site up and going.

    No problem. It will be a bit easier to diagnose if you don’t mind posting your site URL.

    1. The import messages are okay- that just means you previously imported them.

    2. For the images disappearing, that sounds an awful lot like this bug. Try the solution here – http://themeluxe.com/support/topic/images-disappear-on-iphone/#post-45518

    3. The PHP message seems really odd. If you can link to your site after making the change in #2, I’ll take a look.

    Ah, strange, I thought I linked my site in my original post with the link tag but it doesn’t seem to have appeared.

    Here, this will be much easier :)

    Did you make the change in #2? I don’t see it on your page yet.
