Support » Theme: Longevity » Wave replacement plus other issues & questions

  • Hi. Since there is a pro version and I love this theme I am moving forward with the free version for a site redo. This time I am attempting to replace the curves in a child theme with two images which are the same size as the curve files. Neither of the child themes I’ve done before are available and I am not getting anywhere, so I have been trying to use the support threads from two years ago. The version was an earlier one though…

    The first attempt had a black & white striped background on the whole page and showed a giant version of the curves instead of the child theme image. The second attempt looked beautiful except there were no curves, the replacement image or alt text showing at all.

    At the moment neither child is active while I work on other things and try to figure out what’s missing/wrong. Although I have changed the color of the curves in the parent. Can you help get me on track again?

    Other questions/issues—
    — The banner image is showing on all of the pages. I remember there being a way to turn it off on the secondary pages but am unable to locate it.
    — There is a ‘comment’ field on many of the pages (not posts) and I am not seeing where to turn it off either.
    — In the photo of the demo theme there is text on the Home page banner. Where is the control for this?
    — Is it possible to have more main content text above the top widgets? I am experimenting with using a text widget in the Call to Action widget but wonder if there is a better way. For some reason I am unable to get the h1 tag to display as intended but the h2 is fine.

    Thank you

  • I am noticing that there is now a narrow band of the striped background showing above the header sidebar and colored band. I don’t think it was there before I changed the color of the curves images, although I don’t see why this would make a difference. Here is a link to a screenshot.
    Thank you

    Fyi, I just learned a new thing and turned off comments on pages.

    I am still completely stuck on the child theme/curve replacement.

    I did figure out that the banner widget should control the header image and have been able to turn it off on the secondary pages. I am using the Widget Context plugin which should be able to put a different image on the other pages. However, even though the smaller curve shows on them, the shorter image I am working with isn’t being displayed. I’m not sure if this is a theme or plugin issue.

    I’m afraid we can’t cover customization support to this extend for our free themes.
    If any bug fixes needed we are happy to help but your changes are purely website customization related which we normally don’t assist with here.
