I bought this theme today and tried to get it going – even after importing dummy content (into my existing content) it still doesn’t work.
The homepage just doesn’t work at all – I’ve never seen a moving slider, or any blog items, and it doesn’t matter which settings are changed in theme options – the homepage never shows any content other than the header and 4 footer widgets. My posts all appear to have lost their featured graphics too?!
Is this a compatibility issue with my old theme? Please help.

Minor update on this – I managed to get the featured slider going on this – but instead of sliding featured images, it slides portions of the posts themselves (usually the lower right hand corner) – I thought it was somehow a rendered image of that part of the post, but the links in the post actually work..
Very odd.August 13, 2011 at 3:49 pm #50174
I posted the demo template layout here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/home-page-layout-like-in-the-demo
To use the featured slider you need to set “featured images”. On the post editor page you’ll see an option field called “Add featured media”. Click on the upload button and upload an image from your computer or select one from the media gallery. Then click on “use as featured image” (or if this option doesn’t exists on “insert into post”). Add a featured image (or images) to all posts which will appear in the featured slider.August 13, 2011 at 4:09 pm #50175
Yeah, I imported the dummy content and did it that way.
I followed these instructions too and it still doesn’t work – featured posts use the imported “Featured” category, and the slider just goes very weird and displays portions of other posts (not Featured posts). I don’t think this is a user thing any more, I’ve set up tons of WordPress themes and never had this kind of trouble – something’s gone funky.August 13, 2011 at 4:15 pm #50176
Can you create me an admin account and send me the login data to: firstname.lastname@example.org – I’ll look into it.August 13, 2011 at 5:27 pm #50177August 13, 2011 at 5:36 pm #50178August 15, 2011 at 1:53 pm #50179
Any reason why the page buttons wouldn’t work on the home/blog page?
I can’t access any entries other than page 1? If I click any page other than 1, it just reloads the same page with the same blog items.August 15, 2011 at 2:25 pm #50180
Thanks for the hint. Another user: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/upscale-homepage-broken-pagination reported this issue too. It occurs with custom templates on the homepage only. I reported it to Kriesi (as crucial) bug. He’ll release updates this week (propably tomorrow or on Wednesday).August 20, 2011 at 2:40 pm #50181August 20, 2011 at 4:20 pm #50182
Kriesi told me that he’ll release an update in the next few days. However some other bugs occured and I think he wants to fix them all before releasing an incomplete update.August 27, 2011 at 8:53 am #50183
Any updates? Or a refund – that would work for me too – it’s just riddled with site-breaking bugs.August 27, 2011 at 12:12 pm #50184
Kriesi released version 1.0.4 of Shoutbox yesterday. It fixes some bugs. You can download it at http://themeforest.netAugust 27, 2011 at 12:26 pm #50185
Installed. Has same pagination problems – homepage reports “Page 1 of 7″ but the nav buttons still don’t work.August 29, 2011 at 9:33 pm #50186
sorry for the delay, since the dude is on vacation I cant get him to send me your login details. Please send me your ftp and wordpress login data. The error was fixed in the latest update so it basically should work, I will try to apply the patch myself and check if there is anything different with your server settings, plugins etc which might interfere…August 30, 2011 at 10:10 am #50187September 1, 2011 at 8:15 am #50188
Just in case anyone else has this issue, it *was* actually fixed in the last build.
I had set the blog page to be a static page in wordpress options at some point in the past which was causing the problem.
So, user error. Thanks to Kriesi for taking a look and pointing this out. Great support.September 2, 2011 at 11:50 pm #50189
