    Hi!

    Like the theme, actually trying to get a similar look to http://nurulight.com

    for my project. My website is http://lightmanufacturingllc.com

    q1) I used a ‘never true’ eval function in the header to shut the image slider off entirely, is this the best way?

    q2) I set the page “Welcome to Light Manufacturing” as my static home page in Settings / Reading. BUT – now I have a Home page AND a Welcome to LightManufacturing page (the home page is duplicate content). How can I get rid of the duplication?

    q3) I replaced logo.png with a correctly sized replacement. BUT – the image is now overlapping with the nice faded gradient at the top of the page (take a look, you’ll see). How can I fix this?

    Thanks very much!

    Hey,

    sorry for the late response

    1) It’s ok. You can also remove the slider code, this will improve your loading times a bit. You can remove following code in header.php:

    <div id="main_transition">
    <div id="transition-container">
    <?php if($kriesi_options['slide_page'] != ""){
    $my_query = new WP_Query('page_id='.$kriesi_options['slide_page']);

    if ($my_query->have_posts()) : while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post();

    the_content();

    endwhile; endif;

    }else{ ?>
    <!-- WANT TO EDIT YOUR SLIDESHOW IMAGES DIRECTLY? ADD ANY NUMBER OF IMAGES YOU LIKE BELOW-->

    <img src='<?php echo bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images<?php echo $kriesi_options['whichdesign']; ?>/header_image1.jpg' alt='' height="240" width="900" />
    <img src='<?php echo bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images<?php echo $kriesi_options['whichdesign']; ?>/header_image2.jpg' alt='' height="240" width="900" />

    <?php } ?>
    </div>
    </div><!-- end main_transition-->

    2) As far as I can see it doesn’t affect your menu. So the duplicate is just displayed in your backend? Can you create me an admin account and send me the login details to: (Email address hidden if logged out) – I’ll have a look at this issue and I’ll try to remove the duplicate.

    3) Your logo displays right for me here :)

    Hi Dude –

    Thanks for reply,

    I will test your new code (removing the ‘main_transition’ section.

    Regarding the doubled home page,

    The theme’s header line

    <div id=”head”>

    <h1 id=’logo’>/”><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></h1>

    <ul id=”nav”>

    <li <?php if(is_front_page()){ echo “class=’current_page_item’ “;}?>>“>Home

    Produced a double home page – the word Home AND the name of the page I set as the static home page. i.e. “Home” and “Welcome” – both with same content.

    to fix, i changed the line to this:

    <div id=”head”>

    <h1 id=’logo’>/”><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></h1>

    Regarding the logo, the issue was that my ‘new’ logo had a white instead of a transparent background. You guys might want to advise folks in the FAQ / setup guide for the theme about that. Or maybe you did! :)

    —>Hey, is there a way for me to get automatic updates of posts here? I checked my spam folder, no messages regarding your (very helpful!) post.
