I’m still hanging in with this theme. I spent so much time customizing my site that it would be a massive job to move it to another theme and have it look even close to what I have now. It’s volunteer site which has taken a lot of my personal time to build. I don’t have time right now.
The way he built this using Bootstrap and making it fully compatible with bbPress is going to be hard to replace since I have an active forum. I used a lot of his Theme Enhancer page tools to build the site and now WordPress is seeing that plugin as an issue. The customizer was very advanced for it’s time.
The new WP dashboard is supposed to make building a site with blocks easier. It might be worth the effort to try building a site with the standard WP theme and then the site will upgrade with the updates to WP themes.
Please update the Advance Custom Fields Pro. Seeing that plugin highlighted because it needs updating in my dashboard every time I go in there is just so annoying. I can’t disable it because it does “something” for the theme. I’m really concerned one day it is just going to break my site and then I will be spending weeks rebuilding the site with another theme.
Thank you for posting, I thought I was the only person experiencing this. I run a volunteer site for sick dogs and I don’t have the time to worry about site management. I’ve had to ignore the warnings after all this time.
When you delete the ACF Pro plugin, where do you get the actual download files for the re installation? I can probably figure out how to delete the files with FTP and install the new plugin files but I thought that the ACF Pro must be purchased, something I can’t afford. And I am not sure how the developer integrates the plugin with the theme. I thought he suggested to me that I could not install the plugin standalone.
I would love to get this resolved as I get Wordfence warnings every day. So much of my site’s design is tightly integrated with this theme (like the bbPress forum) so that I can’t easily abandon it and install a different theme without a lot of work that I don’t have time for.
It’s been 9 months since I last asked, and nearly 2 years since this plugin has needed updating. I get a message everyday that I have a plugin that needs to be updated. Is there any chance that you will be updating this?
You have such a good WP theme, please try to keep it updated.
my best, Matoca
I really don’t know what function you have used from this plugin to support your theme, that would be your area of expertise.
I am only concerned about the error messages I get each day from Wordfence advising me that I have a critical update.
I’ve learned my lesson that plugins needing updates can crash my site abruptly. Jet pack for instance caused serious issues 2 weeks ago with a feature called Protect. I had no idea it keeps a blacklist that users cannot access. It can lock admin out of their own site.
So just checking in occasionally to see what the status of the upgrade is. You have a fantastic theme, I would not choose another.

I hope you can help me again with the promotion bar. I am having some problems getting a few pages to show in it. I have troubleshooted to my level of ability.
Here is the first page in question:
This page contains the glossary called AIHA Terms. What makes this the glossary page is indicating the title AIHA Terms in the Tooltip plugin settings in the dashboard.
I have made a short sentence at the top of the page to show up in the promotion bar, just as I have with other pages. I have checked the star next to the page indicating add to promotion bar. I removed all the share buttons at the top of the page.
I even just tried to add a “more” tag without success. No matter what I try to adjust it won’t show up. I have a cleared my local browser cache and refreshed the page many times. In addition I have a cache clearing plugin installed that is very active at noticing page changes.
Thank you, Matoca
Thank you, that’s what I needed to know. I was about to purchase my own license to update the plugin. So, if I understand correctly, this wouldn’t work if I do this, it must be integrated into the theme.
Is there any hope this will be updated? It’s been a long time with an plug needing an update on my site. I can don’t know when this will cause a conflict creating problems for the site.
Thank you Matoca
I was not able to use html markup in the promotion bar. However after searching with Firebug I was able to find this section of CSS:
/* promotionbar */ .carousel-mini .panel-body
In Customize I added CSS to change the text to white and added a CSS generated variegated background to style it a bit. It’s not exactly what I wanted but it will work.
I have two more questions about styling the promotion bar.
I noticed that the Promotion Bar is not responsive below 750 pixels and it drops out on phone and tablet displays. Could you point me to where the promotion bar CSS is, or provide me with that CSS so I can adjust the responsive range? Most of my users are on cell phones or tablets and so they miss out on this important promotion bar.
Also, the dropdown Share menu gets cut off below the first row of share buttons on desktop displays. I found the HTML for this but am not sure how to adjust the drop down height so that Google+ and LinkedIn share buttons are visible.
<div class="sharing-hidden"> <div class="inner" style="left: 30.8px; top: 191.2px; display: block;"> <ul> <li class="share-email share-service-visible"> <li class="share-print"> <li class="share-end"></li> <li class="share-facebook"> <li class="share-twitter">
Thank you, Matoca
I am sorry, I don’t think I explained this well.
The text I am entering, that is to show up in the promotion bar, is stripped of attributes.
For instance on one page I have written this:
<h4>Hemopet Resources:</h4> <ul> <li>Blood Bank</li> <li>Consultation Form</li> <li>Test Forms</li> <li>Hypothyroidism</li> <li>Clotting Disorders</li> </ul>
This is what firebug is showing for the html, a simple paragraph tag:
<p>Hemopet Resources: Blood Bank Consultation Form Test Forms Hypothyroidism Clotting Disorders</p>
So in the promotion bar it appears as a run-on sentence with no structure. This should appear as a text teaser of the content that I am promoting with a heading and an unordered list.
The page content is shortcode that links to a Media Grid page. There is no other content on the page than the promotion text. Using “more” would not be possible as there is nothing more on the page.
[mediagrid cat="25" title_under="1"]
I am asking if I can use headings and unordered lists on the page so they will display in the promotion bar, If so I how do I write the html so as to keep the heading and unordered lists tags.
Thank you, Patrice
I had a major crash when WP auto updated to 4.5, white screen of death, for about day until I had time to disable all plugins. I enabled the plugins gradually and it seemed fine after that.
I am still getting an error from Advanced Custom Fields Pro that it needs an update since last year. It’s bundled with the Firmasite Base under a developer’s license, not a stand alone license. I don’t know if this plugin is the one that crashes the site when there is a WP update. Would love to know more about this and would like to know what disabling it would do to the theme.
Any luck with this update? It’s been 6 months since it has needed updating. Since this is the Pro version that needs updating, I was wondering if I could install the regular version, would it work similarly? Or does FirmaSite Base need the Pro version to function properly?
I’m not sure what it involves. I only can tell you that ACFPRO has needed an update for about two weeks. I couldn’t get it to update so I asked their support for help. They just informed me of this and I was relaying that to you.If you don’t think it is important then it can wait.
