    Hi Holobest! I really like your theme K-BOOM. I just have a question concerning the slider: is it not possible to activate the slider without erasing everything I have built so far? Cheers, Lieneke

      You may skip that step if you really want to, but I ca not guarantee any success after that. I think that you could easily save all the information and link(s) you put in any of the text fields in a temporary text file so that you can copy them back to into the panel after reseting.

    Hi there.
    Think I might have made a boob, I didn’t follow the first step to set the slider up and have now put a lot of content into the site. To activate the slider I understand I need to go to Theme Options then Restore Defaults, will this lose all my work so far? Is there a way round this?

    Thanks, Ben

      Hello, Ben.
      When you go to reset the options only the information in the Theme Options panel will be affected while your other information (content, audio et cetera) should normally be left in place. I personally don’t think that it’s a big problem, especially since you can save every bit of entered information from the text fields and place it back after the reset.

    Please, make sure you don’t have any special characters in Slide Caption.
    And also if you send me a WP link and some login details on johnny@holobest.com and I’ll try have a look.

    Hi, Rodrigo.
    As I’ve said make sure you don’t have special characters in slide caption and also check your plugins so you don’t have a interference with the theme. If you can’t figure it our send me a WP link some login details so I might have a look.

    Hi Holobest!
    I recently bought your nice theme. But, I have some problems with the sliders. I followed the steps listed above to add a slider:
    – when I add a slider (following the first 6 steps), it does not appear in the list at the right immediately; I have to refresh the page (with F5) (no big deal, may it is the way it works, but i expect it to appear in the list after i click “Add new slider”)
    – at the 9.step above: the added slider does not appear in the drop-down; this is a problem

      Hi, motkomeri.
      That is really odd. It isn’t supposed to act like that.
      Could you please e-mail me at johnny@holobest.com with some login details and I’ll try have a closer look and see how I could help you in this regard?

    Hi I have the same problem motkomeri. I do not appear in the theme options the “sliders”, after following steps 1 through 6.

    Hello…

    For making the Slider do display all the slides: on homepage-slider.php replace this code:

    $wp_query = new WP_Query(‘post_type=featured&orderby=menu_order&order=ASC&sliders=’. $slider);

    with this one :

    $wp_query = new WP_Query(‘post_type=featured&orderby=menu_order&order=ASC&showposts=-1&sliders=’. $slider);
