    Hi peterillias, I guess this would cover it for you: Please add the following lines to your "Custom CSS" box on the General tab in your Skybox Options:

    body{
    background: 
    #fff url(http://www.thunderbuddies4life.com/sevent/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/sevent-bg-photo.jpg) no-repeat;
    background-size: auto;
    background-attachment: fixed;}

    Hallo, I have problems opening the theme with chrome. The theme seems have some part disappearing and re-appearing when you hover them with the mouse cursor. This happen in my site but also in the preview modo of the theme, hero on themeforest. These parts like menus, social icons, some texts, are not loaded when the browser is loading the page but when the browser finish they still not appear. I use Chrome and Firefox.

    I opened the Chrome Inspector and in the menu -consolo- I got this report: event.returnValue is deprecated. Please use the standard event.preventDefault() instead. Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

    Hay, Think I've figured it out. Made me an apikey for embedding Google Maps. The new Google maps uses different parameters. So changed a bit of code in the contact.php. Things are working again. But I think Skybox needs an update for this problem. Anyway thanks for your fast reply, but help is no longer needed.

    If you would PLEASE see my Ticket #37635, you will see that I responded 3 times to your request.... I think I have explained exactly what I want. Just check the ticket and you will see all my replies. I don't know if I am asking for "FREE CUSTOMIZATION". I am really only trying to get my WordPress Skybox blogs (etc) to look just like my HTML Skybox page "Grid with sidebar" But I don't want to have to chose an "option" of a sidebar for each post (video, etc) because I have 100's of posts (moving from another server & theme). There must be a simple way to get a Wordpress template to look like the "Grid with Sidebar" html page on your demo, without having to manually modify each one in the Admin panel. The sidebar is the issue. What am I missing??? Please see my ticket for more details. Thanks.

    Hi, First of all I have to say you`ve made a great theme. Very clean, nice and easy to manage. Would be very greatfull if you can help me with a css code or something to make just a few changes on the theme for my website. 1 - on the homepage and everywhere on the website would love to get rid of the two lines from below the navigation menu bar http://www.majdsculptures.com/. On the homepage I would like to have the slider closer to the navigation menu bar. 2 - I would like to know how can I change the size of the fonts from the navigation menu, filter for portfolio, titles of works and pages, and the body text from pages and articles. 3 - I would like to know how can I change the background of the entire website not just some parts. 4 - If it`s possible to have on the contact page some smaller rectangles for the filling forms. Thank you! Kind regards, Majd

    Hi, the first line can be deleted with this CSS ("Custom CSS" box in the general tab of the theme options):

    .top-wrapper {
    -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.11);
    -moz-box-shadow: inset 0 0 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.11);
    box-shadow: inset 0 0 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.11);
    }
    I acually do not know why the seconde line is there (maybe in the page intro?) but you can delete it for the home page only with this:
    .home .page-intro.line { display:none;}
    The other customizations would be too much to post here, please contact our support staff about that. And please include an admin account to your installation so they can help you asap! http://freshline.ticksy.com Thanks & Kind regards, tb

    Video Formats don't seem to work On the back end of the wordpress theme, the "add new/ edit video" post asks for the .mv4 link when adding HTML5 video. Is this the same as .m4v? Our .m4v files don't seem to load. Is ".mv4" a typo? This is the only website I've found that references ".mv4": http://www.ehow.com/how_5118132_convert-mv-file-mp-format.html After I upload a video and load the link to the file directly, the video displays. But it won't show through WP and the theme on the normal videocase page. I posted this on the support page (http://freshline.ticksy.com/) but have not heard back in 6 days.

    +MP4 Video (.mp4) - 720x480 | Data Rate: 541 kbps | BitRate: 641 kbps | 15 fps +No error message. Just an empty spot where the videos from the samples were. +no details on the exact codec; compression shows as [34363248-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71] which looks like it's H264 upon a google search. +Yes, I've tried flv and plain .mp4. Nothing. However, youtube and vimeo work. But those are local. +Also thought I'd mention, I’ve been able upload new videos. And if you go to the direct link for the file, it will play but not in the framework of the WP theme. Just a black screen with the video playing in the middle. However, if you test out the sample video posts that came with the theme, they load in the videocase just fine. The videos I uploaded won't do that. *You've been responding to newer comments than mine. Please help. I'm a verified purchaser.*

    I forgot two questions. On megafolio, when I put the cursor without clicking I get two options. This doesn't happen when using the page with a phone. I would like to know if it is posible to only have one option where when cliking on the image you get redirected to another page instead of the way its now that you can select between redirect and lightbox. Also, can the magnifying glass be disabled for images on the blog? Thank you.
