Need help with glitches in a custom theme (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I purchased this theme from someone and there are some glitches. I contacted the person and she won't return my messages after I paid her. These are the issues that I'm encountering:

    1) slideshow which comes with the theme stopped working since I installed a ssl certificate.

    2) The cart is not working properly. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Some coding shows once the person checks out. Apparently it's one of the plugin that is affecting this. WYSIWYG newsletter plugin.

    3) when I made the purchase, the theme was supposed to be mobile compatible, but it's not. Part of the front page screen gets cut off. I had to install WOW slider and a mobile plugin to make it half presentable.

    If someone made a wordpress theme, can somebody else go in and make changes to it to fix these issues? Or do I have to contact the developer?

    Thank you so much.

    Warm Regards,

    Yes, anybody can open the files and fix thing, but it's best to get that same guy to work on it, rather than starting fresh.

    Or do I have to contact the developer?

    Yes, contact the same developer who built it, he/she will know exactly what and where to look for.

    It's time to upgrade your WP too, the meta tag is showing you are running on WP 3.4.2 ( Now it's WP 3.5.1 with 3.6 beta 1 already released )

    Also, I'm not sure why the meta tags and JS is there inside <body> instead of <head>.

    Thank you guys!

    I have another question.
    Does anyone know if this coding needs to be adjusted or changed to make the slideshow work?

    This is the frontpage.php for my theme:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    	<section id="slideshow" class="ten columns">
    		<div>
    
    <ul>
    			<?php
    			global $wpdb;
    			$results = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM $wpdb->postmeta WHERE meta_key = '_wp_attachment_metadata' AND meta_value LIKE '%slider%'");
    			foreach($results as $result) :
    				$image = get_post($result->post_id);
    			?>
    
    <li><?php if ($_image->post_content) : ?><a>post_content; ?>"><?php endif; ?><img src="<?php echo $image->guid; ?>" alt="<?php echo $image->post_title; ?>" /><?php if ($_image->post_content) : ?></a><?php endif; ?></li>
    			<?php endforeach; ?>
    			</ul>
    		</div>
    	</section>
    
    <section id="banners" class="six columns">
    		<?php
    		global $wpdb;
    		$results = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM $wpdb->postmeta WHERE meta_key = '_wp_attachment_metadata' AND meta_value LIKE '%sidebanner%'");
    		foreach($results as $result) :
    			$image = get_post($result->post_id);
    		?><?php if ($_image->post_content) : ?><a>post_content; ?>"><?php endif; ?><img src="<?php echo $image->guid; ?>" alt="<?php echo $image->post_title; ?>" /><?php if ($_image->post_content) : ?></a><?php endif; ?>
    
    			<?php endforeach; ?>
    	</section>
    	<script>
    		$(function() {
    			$("#slideshow div").carousel({autoSlide:true, pagination:true, nextBtn:'', prevBtn:''});
    			$(".carousel-pagination a").addClass('icon-star-empty').click(function() {
    				$(".carousel-pagination a").removeClass('icon-star').addClass('icon-star-empty');
    				$(this).removeClass('icon-star-empty').addClass('icon-star');
    			});
    		});
    	</script>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
