CyberChimps changes support for Responsive Free

Tags : 

cyberchimps-supportCyberChimps changes support for Responsive Free as of February 1st, 2014. Hello everyone, I hope this post finds you well. CyberChimps will no longer be providing pro level support for the Responsive Theme Free version and will limit whatever support they do give. You will need to sign up for a paid monthly support service or upgrade to the Responsive Pro theme which comes with support. This means that users will no longer be able to get help with customization issues regarding CyberChimps Themes, in particular the Responsive Theme formally of ThemeID.

Sites like MindVisionMedia.net and Allan’s YouTube Channel that have filled a niche for support, help and training for WordPress and the Responsive Theme even before the transition from ThemeID are a valuable resource for the web, WordPress and Responsive Theme user communities. Users from all over the world take advantage of the resources and free training available from sites like MindVisionMedia.net and its sister channel (MindVisionMedia Tips) on YouTube .

The Responsive Theme is one of the most downloaded and used free themes among WordPress users today. Finding help with this theme or should I say not finding help with this theme is part of what motivated the creation of this site and the series of training videos it provides. So if you use the FREE Responsive Theme from CyberChimps and need support or help customizing your theme, checkout the free resources at www.mindvisionmedia.net and also the free training videos at MVM on YouTube!

CyberChimps is doing a great job turning the company in to a competitor on the market and they have some great themes. But there still remains a large free theme-user community that needs help and guidance. For those who would like to read the announcement from CyberChimps, click here. It is understandable that a company would need to streamline its resources and focus on profit and making every minute count. This is another opportunity for the open-source community to step up and provide the needed guidance for those who aspire to be a part of this wonderful thing called the Internet.

Responsive Theme Home PHP vs Front-Page PHP

Tags : 

WordPress Responsive Theme Home PHP vs Front-Page PHP:

Hello all, I hope this post finds you well. In recent months I have received several emails about conflicts using methods I demonstrate on some of my tutorial videos with the old and new theme files. When CyberChimps took over the Responsive Theme from ThemeID, changes to the theme soon followed. One of the changes was the file name change of the home.php file. The newer versions of the theme called it front-page.php instead. this caused some confusion from people watching some of my older tutorials that dealt with the file name home php. You can watch the video below.

I try to make it a habit never to teach or upload a method or tutorial that has not been tested over and over by myself and others as well but to ensure that there were not any issues with the methods I was and still are using in my video tutorials, I decided to test each version of the Responsive Theme with these editing methods. I decided to make this a video tutorial as well so that it could help clear up some of the confusion regarding the  files, home.php and front-page.php.

Both files handle the main page content, the title, sub title, the main content and call to action button, and on the right side the featured content (image, video, etc). the newer file does have some slightly different code in it but that is because the code has been improved and made compliant with new web standards. All of the instructions for the content on the home page of the responsive theme are still there in both files. Any additional, modified or missing code in the new file should just be ignored as edits are made to the file in a child theme or on a copy as they do not apply to the modification being made.

My Full Width Slider Tutorial on YouTube has drawn attention to this issue as some have stated that it doesn’t work on the new file. Please watch the video as I test the methods on 2 versions (very old and very new) and discover that if applied correctly, these methods will allow you to modify your Responsive Theme easily and with satisfaction.

Each file is compared in a side-by-side and the differences and similarities are discussed on video, then 2 versions of the Responsive theme are tested with the methods, version 1.8.9.3 (old) and version 1.9.4.9 (new). the results indicate that the methods do work and are proven and tested on both older and newer versions of the Responsive Theme. these methods not only work on the Responsive Theme from CyberChimps but other WordPress themes as well. Care must be taken when working with any code however whether it be on a child theme, the original file, a copy, etc. Even one character of code left out or added to the equation will break the code and cause problems.

If you are new to dealing with CSS and PHP, please take your time when editing the code, copying and pasting the code, cutting out code (removing), etc. Be sure to work off of a child theme or a copy of the original file as recommended in all of my video tutorials. That way you have a backup copy of your work to fall back on in case you make a mistake or break the code. Visit my Website or YouTube Channel for more information

2014 WordPress Responsive Video Tutorials

Tags : 

New 2014 Learning Material:

Hello to all and I hope this post finds you well. This year is going to be full of new powerful tutorials from MindVisionmedia dealing with the Responsive Theme and many others.

There are 5 brand new WordPress Video Tutorials on YouTube right now that will help you enhance your Responsive Theme from CyberChimps to new levels. YT-channel-ThumbThese easy to follow videos are made with the beginner in mind. There are plenty of rushed, fast-paced videos on YouTube already, I try to consider those who are learning web design as well as WordPress.

So far the feedback for the MVM site and YouTube Channel has been great both nationally and internationally. I wish at times I had a full staff to assist me with all of the feedback, questions, comments and suggestions.

This whole thing started out with me just wanting to help others through the frustration of learning WordPress and in particular the Responsive Theme from then ThemeID. Now I have over a thousand followers and over 80,000 views with hundreds of hours of tutorial lessons viewed. It has become more than I expected and the demand is still there for content like this.

To see these new 2014 video tutorial releases and more, visit my YouTube Channel at MindVisionMedia Tips

 


 Coming Soon!

2014ThemeA new video tutorial series on the new 2014 Theme from WordPress. This is a powerful theme that will be sure to please just like its predecessors, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The new 2014 theme is packed with features and is aesthetically superior in my opinion to the previous updates with its magazine style format and layout options. With all of the theme competition out there, this default theme will definitely give the big boys a run for their money, figuratively speaking since the theme is completely free.

I can see their won’t be much that needs to be done for this theme in the way of appearance, they’ve done a good job of that already. The layout options can serve so many genres which makes it a very versatile theme. The test I’ve run on it so far show it to be smooth and robust. Some users may find it hard to modify though because their doesn’t seem to be many options as with some other themes. But once you know how to navigate the themes available options and apply some different methods and plugins, I think everyone will be happy with this version in the end.

Within minutes you’ll have the look and feel you want with see through pages on top of a background image. Watch this easy WordPress video tutorial now!

Using Firebug to capture some simple code snippets (rule declarations) and the available Custom CSS option in the theme options section, you can tell your site to display alpha transparency. Not many people realize what you can do with the Custom CSS panel inside the theme. It’s almost like having a mini child theme inside the Responsive Theme. Whatever you put in that section, overrides the style sheet on your child theme or parent theme, pretty handy!
