How to force content to display on the right side in portfolio single item view?

When you create a portfolio item make sure that all the content you want to display on the right side (next to the featured images) is embeded inside the first row of the Visual Composer. Everything bellow the first row will be displayed after the featured image.

How to display only the excerpt of the post?

How to setup twitter widget.

Blurry product images.

If you are encountering blurry images on your shop (or shortcodes releated to your products) make sure you have proper image settings in WooCommerce>Products tab. The settings should look like on the image bellow.

Visual Composer Demo install stops at ... and doesn't go further.

If your demo installation stops in some moment and does not want to go further, then it is probably due low PHP memory limit on yor server or allowed for Wordpress in wp-config.php file. You can check it from Dashboard->WooCommece->System status. If you want to use WooCommerce we strongly recommend to set this value to 128MB. Add this line in the top section of wp-config.php file :

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');

I can't find Demo Install in my Wordpress Dashboard panel.

Please make sure that you have installed and activated MPC Importer plugin. After that check Theme options->General->Domo Wizard - "Disable Demo Wizard​" need to be turned OFF.

Where I can find license key for Visual Composer? I can't update plugin without it.

To update Visual Composer you will need to delete it from Wordpress Dashboard and install again from Appearance->Install Plugins(it will be downloaded from our servers). Please notice that you cannot update Visual Composer from author servers because you did not purchased a personal license for this plugin. Visual Composer is bundled with Blaszok with license for themes/plugins (Extended License). You can use it for free only with Blaszok license and all support/updates are provided by us.

I have got double Wishlist button on single product page.

Go to YIT Plugins->Wishlist->General Settings->Position set this option to "Use shortcode".

If you want to setup your theme to look like the Blaszok preview from ThemeForest please follow this guide. The process is very simple and it should take up to 5 minutes.

Home Content

With Blaszok we are also providing the content for the home pages please go to 'import/home-content' folder inside the 'package you have downloaded from ThemeForest' in there you will find few separate *.txt files. Each of them represents the home version you can copy the code from there and paste it inside the text editor of the page (Look at the image bellow). Once you do this you can switch to 'BackEnd Editor' of the Visual Composer to see how the structure looks like.

Add Home Example How to setup the home versions

Bellow I will explain how to setup your page to look like the different home page versions.

How To Update Blaszok - top
1). Automatic update:

Since version 3.9.8, there is a build-in automatic update feature. So, you can update theme directly from Apperance->Themes or Dashboard->Updates. In order to activate automatic updates, add purchase code into Theme Options->General->Update.

Automatic updates 2). Manual update via FTP:

This method will require access to your server via FTP. Make sure that you have got all required details in order to connect to your server.

100% safety update check list:

Please notice that:

Please always remember to: If you are following these steps during updates, everything should be fine. Please also notice, that all changes made to main theme files will be replaced. If you need to do a modification of source files please use the Child theme.


Settings import/export - top

With Blaszok 1.5.0 we are bringing a possibility to export or/and import all of the Theme Options settings from one file. This function will help to make settings backup, transfer site to another domain or settings import for new page. Now, all of these things are easier and faster.

Settings Export

Please go to Theme Options page and scroll the page down then click Export settings and save the file.

Settings Import

Please click 'Select file' and find the file with exported settings 'mpc_panel_settings.mps'. Click 'Import settings' and wait a bit.

Settings import/export
Child Theme - top

We strongly recommend to use of child theme. Actually, it is necessary for you if you are planning some modifications in Blaszok templates or functions. Update process will replace all theme files from wp-content\themes\blaszok\, so you need to place them safe into Child theme.

You can find our child theme in package you have obtained from ThemeForest it is right next to blaszok.zip file. Child theme is being installed and activated just like regular theme, but it require parent theme (Blaszok) in order to work.

With Blaszok 1.6.1 we have changed the method the styles are merged. Thanks to that minifying plugins you can minify the whole child theme styles. If you are using a child theme from earlier theme version you will have to make two changes:

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mpcth_child_enqueue_scripts');
function mpcth_child_enqueue_scripts() {
	wp_enqueue_style( 'mpc-styles-child', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );
}

Performance - top

Blaszok fully supports two great performance improvement plugins. After this basic configuration you should feel about 15-40% improvement on your site.

Autoptimize - link

After plugin activation, go to it's settings, toggle "Show: Advanced Settings", enable "Optimize HTML Code?", " Optimize JavaScript Code?", "Optimize CSS Code?" and make sure to keep disabled:

Please notice that some third party plugins (not included into Blaszok package) or customizations might not support Autoptimize. In case of any troubles deactivate plugin, advanced configuration or debugging issue will require web developer skills.

W3 Total Cache - link

It's also available at the Wordpress repository. For installation instructions please check this link: installation. After that in the Performance > General Settings we have enabled:

If you are using WooCommerce and you want to enable the Database Cache please go to Performance > Database Cache and in the Ignored Query Stems add this:

_wc_session_

!!!Please notice that after each change you made in Theme Options you will need to flush cache files. We highly recommend you to disable caching while developing new site - it could be really frustrating.

There is a video tutorial coresponding to this section of the documentation - Universal Video - Blog & Posts
There is a video tutorial corresponding to this section of the documentation - Universal Video - Menu Setup & Homepage This video does not explain how to setup the Mega Menu

To setup the Menu first you need some pages, if you haven't setup any yet please see the first section of this chapter.

Once all your pages are created (of course you can edit/add/remove them at any point) go to the Appearance>Menus to create your new menu.

Now your menu is created and should be visible in the header of your theme.

Enabling Mega Menu - top

To setup the mega menu first you must install the MPC Mega Menu from the recommended plugins list, if you don't know how to do this, please view this section. After installing the plugin you will have to enable the mega menu functionality inside the Theme Options, to do so please go to Theme Options>Element>Header and make sure that the 'Enable Mega Menu' is set to 'true'.

Now once the Mega Menu is enabled it is time to create the menu in Appearance>Menus (if you previously created the menu just make sure that it meets the Mega Menu Standards.) This is how the Mega Menu Works:

Page Template

It is really important to makes identical links structure as shown above to avoid complication with "Dropdown Backgrounds".

So as you can see the first level items of your menu resemble the main level of the menu. This mean that those links will shown as your main navigation menu. The second level resembles the header of the column and finally the 3rd level resembles the menu item inside the column.

When your menu is ready, go to Manage Location tab and make sure that you have selected this menu as Main Navigation Menu. Look at image below.

Page Template

Once you setup the menu it is time to add it as your mega menu please go to Appearance>Widgets, you will notice new widget area called Main Menu and a new widget Called jQuery drag the Mega Menu widget inside the new Widget area.

Page Template

Inside the widget you will find few additional settings:

After that you are done. The menu will be displayed in your gorgeous new header!

Adding Dropdown Images

To add images to your drop downs please go to Theme Options > Visuals > Dropdowns Background. If there is no option "Dropdown backgrounds", make sure that all the earlier steps are made correctly. There will be displayed each top level element from your menu. For each of the elements you can choose an image and padding.

If your looks good as background, you will probably not need to set up padding. In case when your links cover important part of background, follow the steps bellow. Padding is set as right, bottom, left, so if you set it for example to: 10px 15px 20px, you will end up with:
padding right = 10px;
padding bottom = 15px;
padding left = 10px;

Why is this so important? Take a look at image below to better understand the purpose of setting padding for background image. This process can take a while but when you do it right the effect will be amazing!

Page Template Page Template

Once you set up your pictures & save your gorgeus new dropdowns are ready to be used.

Adding Icons To The Menu

To add icons to the menu you need to add a little code before the page item name, this could looks like this:

Menu Item Title

It is very easy to change the icon all you need to do is swap the 'fa-desktop' with any of the names from this list (without the code in the brackets).


Creating Secondary Menu - top

To setup the Menu for Secondary header, first you need some pages, if you haven't setup any yet please see the first section of this chapter.

Once all your pages are created (of course you can edit/add/remove them at any point) go to the Appearance>Menus to create your new menu.

Now your menu is created and should be visible in the secondary header of your theme.

Notice:Secondary Header Menu has no provide support for MegaMenu but is still supporting multi level menu.

Adding Parallax Sections - top

To add a parallax section make sure you have installed the Visual Composer plugin and enabled it for post, pages, portfolios and prodcuts. To add a parallax section to a page (it is the same for posts, portfolio etc.) open up the editor of the page and enable the backend editor fromvisual composer (See image below).

Parallax

Then add a new row and edit the pencil to edit the row (See image below).

Parallax

Once you click the pencil icon a popup will appear with tones of options (See image below), at the first tab "General" you will see:

At the second tab "Design options" you can set background for your section:

Parallax Parallax

The last step would be to add some content to your row which will be displayed inside the parallax.

After those steps you are done and your beautiful parallax is ready.
