1. How to make a page load with accordion items closed by default

In order to make a page load with accordions collapse by default, please edit celebration/bt_elements.js file in your wp-content/plugins folder and locate the following statements:

$( '.tabsVertical' ).each(function(){
 $( this ).find( '.tabAccordionTitle' ).first().click();
 });

Remove these statements from file or comment them out and your accordions will remain closed on page load.

2. How to change the e-mail address from Wordpress?

In order to change the sender name, if the visitor and admin are receiving an e-mail from "Wordpress", we suggest you to avoid code customization and to install a third party plugin which will allow this. For example this one: WP Simple Mail Sender.


3. I can’t upload plugin. It’s saying it is invalid. What went wrong?

Please unpack plugin folder and upload to your wp-content/plugins using FTP. The archive contains not only plugin but also the other files. 

If you want to upload in admin panel, you need to unpack plugin folder (bold-timeline) and pack it again as zip and then upload that zip.

4. Can I redirect users to another page after submitting message?

Since Cost Calculator Version 1.2.1, Cost Calculator Settings contain the field for URL that you want your users to be redirected to.

In order to redirect users to another page after submitting the form, add the URL to ‘Optional URL for confirmation’ field.




5. How to set Event week view?

Kids Club and Fitness Club themes use Events Calendar third party plugin for events list appearance.

From versions 1.0.4 - Kids Club and Fitness Club themes include Events week view element on Bold Builder page editor which contains several settings (Date, Number of events, week day format etc.) in order to illustrate week view.



For more info and detailed instructions please refer to our Online Theme Documentation.

6. How to increase the size of the logo?

In order to increase size of the logo navigate to the Appearance > Customize > Header and Footer and in Logo Height (in px) field write the number according to your needs:


7. How to increase the size of the logo?

In order to increase size of the logo you need to add the following CSS statements to Custom CSS field of Appearance > Customize > General panel:

img.btMainLogo {
    height: 50px;
}
.menuHolder .menuPort {
    margin-top: 15px;
}

Please adjust the numbers according to your needs. The first number (50px) represents the height of the logo and the second (15px) represents the top margin between the header widget elements and content.

8. How to edit widgets?

In Appearance > Widgets panel you can see the list of available widgets and widget areas.

Here’s how they work - each theme has default widget areas, such as Footer widgets, Header Left widget, Header Right widgets, etc.

Some themes have custom widget areas made for each homepage in order to have different widgets on them.

 The purpose of custom widget areas is to override the default widget areas on certain pages.

 Custom widget areas are added in Appearance > Sidebars panel, by selecting which default area they will replace and on what page(s) they will display.

Once you select your homepage, go to Appearance > Widgets and check if that homepage has its own custom widget area.

If it does, you have two options – first is to move widgets from this custom widget area to a corresponding default area.

Other solution would be to simply assign that custom widget area to display on all pages by selecting them in Appearance > Sidebars panel.


*Example is from Renata theme, but the steps are the same for all of our themes.



9. How to make a page load with accordion items closed by default

In order to make a page load with accordions collapse by default, please edit cargo/bt_elements.js file in your wp-content/plugins folder and locate the following statements:

$( '.tabsVertical' ).each(function(){
 $( this ).find( '.tabAccordionTitle' ).first().click();
 });

Remove these statements from file or comment them out and your accordions will remain closed on page load.

10. How to disable Overlay Grid Lines?

In order to disable Overlay Grid Lines, please navigate to the Appearance > Customization > General Settings and choose No Lines from the dropdown.


11. How to add custom icon font

In order to add new icon font, you need to customize the theme. Please do the following steps:

1. First of all you need to import your font file. 

2. Please take a look at the top of style.crush.css file and you will find @font-face declaration. You need to import your own font files in the same manner as FontAwesome and the rest and declare the font-family as 'myFont' or something similar.

3. Then you need to search for all 'data-ico-fa' in the style.crush.css file and create respective statements for your font. For example when you locate

*[data-ico-fa]:before {
    font-family: FontAwesome;
    content: attr(data-ico-fa);
    }

you need to create 

 *[data-ico-mf]:before {
    font-family: myFont;
    content: attr(data-ico-mf);
    }

etc.

4. Then, you need to create new file in celebration plugin folder called bt_mf_icons.php by copying the file bt_fa_icons.php and changing it by mapping you glyph codes:

function bt_mf_icons(){
 $arr = array(
     '  ' => 'no_icon', 
     'myname1' => 'mf_' . 'xxxx',
     'myname2' => 'mf_' . 'xxxx',,
etc...

5. Finally, you need to edit celebration.php in your plugin's folder, search for bt_fa_icons() and add respective statements for bt_mf_icons() as well. For example to change all occurrences of 

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

to

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_mf_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

12. Installing Demo Content

The best way to start is to install demo content. If you want to install demo content please do the following:

1. Start with fresh WordPress installation and make sure that theme and required plugins are installed.

2. Go to ‘Tools > BT Import’ and select demo which you want to install.

3. Wait until you get message that import is finished. If you see red colored error message, go to Media Library and delete any unfinished downloads (images) and repeat the import.

13. Header title is displaying site name

Once you add titles with Yoast SEO plugin, header will display that title and site name, instead of the page title.

In order to show only title, without site name, you could change page title template to display only the title. In Yoast > Titles & Metas > Pages Title template, you could add title template as:

%%title%%


Other option would be to switch to  All in One SEO Pack plugin, that does not affect header title.

14. New YIHT 2.2.0 version broke my site - Problem is solved!

If you've updated YITH WooCommerce Wishlist plugin to the newest 2.2.0 version, it's possible that your site is broke (especially if WP_DEBUG is enabled).

In that case, please do the following:

1. Locate 237 line in yit-debug.php  (located in \wp-content\plugins\yith-woocommerce-wishlist\plugin-fw\lib folder on your server):

$plugin_fw_version   = get_file_data( trailingslashit( YIT_CORE_PLUGIN_PATH ) . 'init.php', array( 'Version' => 'Version' ) )[ 'Version' ];

2. Replace it with:

$plugin_fw_version   = get_file_data( trailingslashit( YIT_CORE_PLUGIN_PATH ) . 'init.php', array( 'Version' => 'Version' ) );

3. Save!

15. How to add custom icon font to the theme

Hi,

This requires customization of several theme files. 

First of all you need to import your font file. Please take a look at the top of style.cargo.css file and you will find @font-face declaration. You need to import your own font files in the same manner as FontAwesome and the rest and declare the font-family as, for example 'myFont'.

Then you need to search for all 'data-ico-fa' in the style.cargo.css file and create respective statements for your font. For example when you locate

.btIco .btIcoHolder[data-ico-fa]:before{font-family:FontAwesome;content:attr(data-ico-fa)}

you need to create 

.btIco .btIcoHolder[data-ico-mf]:before{font-family:myFont;content:attr(data-ico-mf)}

Please make sure to find all occurrences of data-ico-fa and create respective data-ico-mf statements.

Then, you need to create new file in cargo plugin folder called bt_mf_icons.php by copying the file bt_fa_icons.php and changing it by mapping your glyph codes:

function bt_mf_icons() {
 $arr = array(
 '  ' => 'no_icon', 
 'myname1 (mf)' => 'mf_' . 'xxxx',
 'myname2 (mf)' => 'mf_' . 'xxxx',
etc...

Finally, you need to edit cargo.php in your plugin's folder: 

search for bt_fa_icons.php and add equivalent statements for bt_mf_icons.php:

if ( ! function_exists( 'bt_mf_icons' ) ) {
 require_once( 'bt_mf_icons.php' );
 }

then search for bt_fa_icons() and add respective statements for bt_mf_icons() as well - change all occurrences of 

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

to

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_mf_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

16. RTL Support

In order to ensure that the theme you purchased / want to purchase is RTL supported, you can check on our themes' profiles on ThemeForest.

These themes have CSS defined for RTL layout, so when you change site's language in Settings >General on your dashboard (or via language switch if you have multilingual site), the RTL layout will automatically apply to certain elements.

However!

Some elements in Bold Builder that have alignment option (such as Icons, Images, Columns, etc...) will need to be rearranged manually to fit the RTL layout.


Additionally, two of our themes, Medicare and Industrial, come with full, premade RTL demos.

17. Google Map API Key

*Google has, starting July 16, 2018, made certain API and billing changes. In order to enable billing, you will need to provide credit card or billing account to Google Maps platform. Please note that we are in no way associated with Google Maps and their payment system and for any questions and issues regarding payments and billing you will need to contact them. Please refer to their FAQ and their documentation to learn more about these changes.

In order to be able to fully use all Bello theme's Google Map features, you will need to get an API Key, and then enable four different API services on Google Cloud.

First, please get your API key.

Then proceed to add the API key to Bold Builder Google Maps element.


Or Listing Map panel in Customizer.


And _listing_root category.


Once you have your API key, you need to enable following four services:

1. Places API - enable this API to use autocomplete search by locations in the search shortcode or main listing search - https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/intro.

2. Geocoding API - to convert the position by longitude and latitude and calculate distance from the visitor and listing location. This is the process of converting addresses (like "1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA") into geographic coordinates (like latitude 37.423021 and longitude -122.083739), which you can use to place markers on a map, or position the map - https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/geocoding/start.

3. Maps Javascript API - To fully utilize google maps search, customization, etc. It lets you customize maps with your own content and imagery for display on web pages and mobile devices. The Maps JavaScript API features four basic map types (roadmap, satellite, hybrid, and terrain) which you can modify using layers and styles, controls and events, and various services and libraries - https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/.

4. Directions API - It's a service that calculates directions between locations - https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/directions/start.

18. I want to use a child theme. How can I do that?

If you want to use a child theme, please follow these steps:

  1. First of all, make sure that you haven’t changed the parent theme’s folder name. It needs to remain the same.
  2. You should be able to find the folder your_theme_name-child in the package you've downloaded from ThemeForest.
  3. Please copy this folder to /wp-content/themes folder on your server.
  4. Go to Appearance > Themes in your wp-admin console and activate child theme. Please have in mind that all required plugins need to be activated.

To replace a function, copy it from the parent theme to the functions.php file in your child theme and make your modifications.

For example, if you want to change default pagination HTML output, you need to copy entire function to the child theme:

/**
 * Pagination output for post archive
 */
if ( ! function_exists( 'boldthemes_pagination' ) ) {
    function boldthemes_pagination() {
        ...
    }
}

And then replace the output according to your needs. For example

if ( ! function_exists( 'boldthemes_pagination' ) ) {
    function boldthemes_pagination() {
        echo '<div class="new-archive-pagination"></div>;
    }
}

Please note that this is an example for one function, and it might differ for other functions and changes.

You can find additional info in this article from EnvatoTuts+.

19. I can’t upload plugin. It’s saying it is invalid. What went wrong?

Please unpack plugin folder and upload to your wp-content/plugins using FTP. The archive contains not only plugin but also the other files. 

If you want to upload in admin panel, you need to unpack plugin folder (bt_cost_calculator) and pack it again as zip and then upload that zip.

20. How to update a plugin?

There are two ways to update Cost Calculator plugin - through wp-admin or through FTP.

Since plugin version 2.2.4 it is possible to update plugin through your dashboard, in Updates panel. In order to be able to do this, you will need to register your purchase code.

You can register your purchase code in Cost Calculator >Product License panel, on your dashboard.


Other option to update Cost Calculator to the latest version is to download the plugin folder from the download section of your CodeCanyon profile and update through FTP. We suggest that you use Filezilla to access your server. Here is the article that explains how Filezilla works.

Extract bt_cost_calculator file from the folder you downloaded, and upload it to /wp-content/plugins/ folder of your WordPress installation. You will be prompted to overwrite the existing files. Select 'Yes', and the plugin will update.

If you have made some changes in the plugin's code, you will need to reapply the changes in the new version.

Cost Calculators that were made before update will be preserved.

21. How to translate plugin?

Translation using PoEdit

The procedure is standard – you can find the .pot file in the plugin’s languages folder. 

Please use PoEdit - https://poedit.net/ to translate the .pot file and create respective .po and .mo fies.

You should upload .po and .mo files created using PoEdit back to plugin's languages folder. 

Please name .po and .mo files e.g. bt-cost-calculator-nl_NL.po and bt-cost-calculator-nl_NL.mo (nl_NL is the language code for dutch) and place them in /wp-content/plugins/bt_cost_calculator/languages/

For other languages code, please refer to the following link: Internationalization.

You can set the site language of your WordPress installation on Settings > General. WordPress will automatically use the right language files if they exist. 

Translation using Loco Translate

Install Loco Translate plugin - https://wordpress.org/plugins/loco-translate/ on Plugins panel of your wp-admin console

Once you have the plugin installed and activated, please do the following:

1. Go to Loco Translate > Plugins.

2. Click on Cost Calculator.

3. Click on Advanced tab and set Text Domain and File Prefix to “bt-cost-calculator”. By default they are probably “bt_cost_calculator”.

4. Set Template file to languages/bt-cost-calculator.pot and Save Config. Go to Overview Tab.

5. Click New Language and choose the language you have set in WordPress > General Settings.

6. Set Choose location to Author (plugins/bt_cost_calculator/languages/bt_cost_calculator-xx_XX.po).

7. Click Start translating.

8. Translate the strings you need - you do not have to translate the entire set.

9. Once you save the translation, the changes should be visible on Front End if you have done everything as described.


22. Missing style sheet error when installing the theme

A common issue that can occur with users new to installing WordPress themes is a "Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing” error message being displayed when trying to upload or activate the theme. This error message does not mean that the theme you have purchased is broken, it simply means it has been uploaded incorrectly.

You have 2 options for downloading your theme:


Please use Installable WordPress file only archive in the process of Theme installation:

  1. Log in to your WordPress admin area.
  2. Browse to Appearance > Themes.
  3. Click on ‘Add New’.
  4. Click ‘Upload Theme’.
  5. Browse and select the theme zip file to upload, then click 'Install Now' button.


Check our video tutorial how to install theme and import demo content.

Don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel!


For more info and detailed instructions please refer to our Online Theme Documentation.

23. Issues with Grid layout

If you have activated the theme with the existing content, you will have problems with grid layout.

Once it's activated, our theme generates necessary thumbnails for every newly uploaded image. Since these were uploaded prior to activation of the theme, thumbnails do not exist yet.

In order to correct this, please install the following plugin: Regenerate Thumbnails and run it. Once you do that, all necessary thumbnails will be regenerated and the issue should be resolved. All newly uploaded photos will be ok.


24. How to create One page

The best way to start is to install demo content. If you want to install one page demo please refer to the article: Installing Demo Content. You will be able to see how all elements on the single page are set.

Please have a look at the following steps, how to achieve one page:

1. Insert in required shortcode section Custom ID Attribute. 

2. Then in Appearance > Menus add a new custom link and as a URL insert custom ID atribute with #.

25. Installing Demo Content

The best way to start is to install demo content. If you want to install demo content please do the following:

First, delete all sample content (posts and pages) which is automatically created when WordPress is installed. If you have already added a new content, please make sure to do the backup in order to save the content. After the backup, delete all content and you can start with the next steps:  

1. Start with fresh WordPress installation and delete all sample content (like posts and pages) which is automatically created when WordPress is installed.

2. Go to ‘Tools > Import > WordPress’ and install WordPress Importer plugin if it is not already installed.

3. When it is installed, choose xml file from demo_data folder and click ‘Upload file and import’. On the following screen make sure that ‘Download and import file attachments’ is checked. Click ‘Submit’ button and wait until import is finished.

If import appears broken, please delete any imported menus from Appearance > Menus and repeat the import. Do the same again if necessary (e.g. 5-10 times) until import is completed.

Additionally, because import process depends on server setup, you may ask your hosting provider for help.

26. How to translate theme?

In order to translate the theme, please follow the next steps:

Theme's .pot file is located in /wp-content/themes/your-theme-name/languages folder.

Please use PoEdit - https://poedit.net/ to translate the .pot file and create respective .po and .mo files.

Please name .po and .mo files e.g. potname-nl_NL.po and potname-nl_NL.mo (nl_NL is the language code for dutch and potname is the name of the .pot file you have started from - it corresponds to text domain of the theme). For other languages' codes, please refer to the following link: Internationalization.

In order to place .po and .mo files properly and not have them deleted when you update the theme, upload  them to \wp-content\languages\themes folder. If you don’t have languages folder in your wp-content directory, please proceed and create one. Then create themes folder, and paste the files in it.

Alternatively, you can upload the .po and .mo files to your theme's /wp-content/themes/your-theme-name/languages folder. In that case name them only using the language code (for example nl_NL.mo and nl_NL.po)

Also make sure to translate the theme's plugin .pot file, located in \wp-content\plugins\your-theme-name\languages folder. 

The steps are the same as for the theme, except the files should be named bt_plugin-nl_NL.po and bt_plugin-nl_NL.mo (with appropriate language code).

For plugin’s .po and .mo files, you should place them in \wp-content\languages\plugins folder.

You can set the site language of your WordPress installation on Settings > General. WordPress will automatically use the right language files if they exist. 

27. How to add custom icons using child theme?

Please refer to the instruction below on how to add custom icons to your site using child theme:

1. Create and activate child theme on your site. 

You can find detailed instructions on how to create and activate child theme in the theme documentation.

2. Create icon folder (e.g. MyIcon) with required items:

Make sure that your icon folder contains .ttf and .woff files, as well as CSS file with icons' names and glyph codes. If it doesn't have these files, you could use IcoMoon to generate the files.

3. Create PHP file for your icons:

The PHP file should be named as the icons (for example, MyIcon). As an example of how the PHP file should look, you can use one of the existing fonts and copy their files' content, and replace it with your glyph codes.

Or, you can use the following example, and just replace the glyph codes (numbers: f100, f101, f102 etc.) with the ones from your icon set. 

<?php
$set = strtolower( basename(__FILE__, '.php') );
$$set = array(     'icon-01 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f100',     'icon-02 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f101',     'icon-03 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f102',     'icon-04 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f103',     'icon-05 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f104'
);

The glyph codes are defined in style.css file (located in downloaded file from e.g. IcoMoon). Here is the example:

.icon-01:before {  content: "\f100";
}
.icon-02:before {  content: "\f101";
}
.icon-03:before {  content: "\f102";
}
.icon-04:before {  content: "\f103";
}
.icon-05:before {  content: "\f104";
}

4. Upload icon folder:

Once you have the files, please go to \wp-content\themes\your-child-theme-name\fonts folder (if there is none, create fonts folder in your child theme), on your server, and create a new folder, in the fonts folder. Name it as you named your icons (MyIcon). The new fonts folder should contain .ttf and .woff files, and php file.

5. Copy and edit theme files - Step 01:

Copy admin-style.php file, from your main theme's root folder to your child theme's root folder \wp-content\themes\your-child-theme-name, remove the following line of code, which is located at the end:

', array() );

and replace it with the following code.

@font-face{font-family:"MyIcon"; src:url("' . get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/fonts/MyIcon/MyIcon.woff' . '") format("woff") , url("' . get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/fonts/MyIcon/MyIcon.ttf' . '") format("truetype");}
*[data-ico-myicon]:before { font-family: MyIcon; content:attr(data-ico-myicon); }
.bt_bb_icon_preview.bt_bb_icon_preview_myicon { font-family: MyIcon;  }', array() );

Replace every occurrence of 'MyIcon' / 'myicon' with the name of your icons (if you didn't name them MyIcon).

5. Copy and edit theme files - Step 02:

Copy icons.php file, from your main theme's root folder to your child theme's root folder \wp-content\themes\your-theme-name folder, remove the following line of code, which is located at the end:

', array() );

and replace it with the following code.

@font-face {font-family: "MyIcon"; src:url("' . get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/fonts/MyIcon/MyIcon.woff' . '") format("woff") , url("' . get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/fonts/MyIcon/MyIcon.ttf' . '") format("truetype"); }
*[data-ico-myicon]:before { font-family: MyIcon; content: attr(data-ico-myicon); }', array() );

Replace every occurrence of 'MyIcon' / 'myicon' with the name of your icons (if you didn't name them MyIcon).

28. How to change H tag in page headline?

Title in page headline is, by default, set to use h1 tag.


In order to change the tag, you will need to customize part of the theme's code, so some familiarity with PHP is necessary.

First, install and activate the child theme. Then, to child theme's functions.php file add the following code:


/**
 * Header headline output
 */
if ( ! function_exists( 'boldthemes_header_headline' ) ) {
    function boldthemes_header_headline( $arg = array() ) {
        $extra_class = 'btPageHeadline';
        
        $dash  = '';
        $use_dash = boldthemes_get_option( 'sidebar_use_dash' );
        if ( is_singular( 'post' ) ) {
            $use_dash = boldthemes_get_option( 'blog_use_dash' );
        } else if ( is_singular( 'product' ) ) {
            $use_dash = boldthemes_get_option( 'shop_use_dash' );
        }  else if ( is_singular( 'portfolio' ) ) {
            $use_dash = boldthemes_get_option( 'pf_use_dash' );
        } 
        if ( $use_dash ) $dash  = apply_filters( 'boldthemes_header_headline_dash', 'top' );
        if ( is_front_page() ) {
            $title = get_bloginfo( 'description' );
        } else if ( is_singular() ) {
            $title = get_the_title();
        } else {
            $title = wp_title( '', false );
        }
        
        if ( BoldThemesFramework::$page_for_header_id != '' ) {
            $feat_image = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id( BoldThemesFramework::$page_for_header_id ) );
            
            $excerpt = boldthemes_get_the_excerpt( BoldThemesFramework::$page_for_header_id );
            if ( ! $feat_image ) {
                if ( is_singular() && ! is_singular( 'product' ) ) {
                    $feat_image = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id() );
                } else {
                    $feat_image = false;
                }
            }
        } else {
            if ( is_singular() ) {
                $feat_image = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id() );
            } else {
                $feat_image = false;
            }
            $excerpt = boldthemes_get_the_excerpt( get_the_ID() );
        }
        
        $parallax = isset( $arg['parallax'] ) ? $arg['parallax'] : apply_filters( 'boldthemes_header_headline_parallax', '0.8' );
        $parallax_class = 'bt_bb_parallax';
        if ( wp_is_mobile() ) {
            $parallax = 0;
            $parallax_class = '';
        }
        
        $supertitle = '';
        $subtitle = $excerpt;
        
        $breadcrumbs = isset( $arg['breadcrumbs'] ) ? $arg['breadcrumbs'] : true;
        
        if ( $breadcrumbs ) {
            $heading_args = boldthemes_breadcrumbs( false, $title, $subtitle );
            $supertitle = $heading_args['supertitle'];
            $title = $heading_args['title'];
            $subtitle = $heading_args['subtitle'];
        }
        
        if ( $title != '' || $supertitle != '' || $subtitle != '' ) {
            $extra_class .= $feat_image ? ' bt_bb_background_image ' . apply_filters( 'boldthemes_header_headline_gradient', 'bt_bb_background_overlay_dark_solid' ) . ' ' . $parallax_class . ' btDarkSkin ' : ' ';
            echo '<section class="bt_bb_section gutter bt_bb_vertical_align_top ' . esc_attr( $extra_class ) . '" style="background-image:url(' . esc_url_raw( $feat_image ) . ')" data-parallax="' . esc_attr( $parallax ) . '" data-parallax-offset="0">';
                echo '<div class="bt_bb_port port">';
                    echo '<div class="bt_bb_cell">';
                        echo '<div class="bt_bb_cell_inner">';

                                        echo boldthemes_get_heading_html( 
                                            array(
                                                'superheadline' => $supertitle,
                                                'headline' => $title,
                                                'subheadline' => $subtitle,
                                                'html_tag' => "h1",
                                                'size' => apply_filters( 'boldthemes_header_headline_size', 'large' ),
                                                'dash' => $dash,
                                                'el_style' => '',
                                                'el_class' => ''
                                            )
                                        );
                                        echo '</div><!-- /rowItemContent -->' ;
                                    echo '</div><!-- /rowItem -->';
                            echo '</div><!-- /boldRow -->';
                        echo '</div><!-- boldCellInner -->';    
                    echo '</div><!-- boldCell -->';            
                echo '</div><!-- port -->';
            echo '</section>';
        }
        
    }
}


Once you add the code, change the H tag defined in this part of the code:

'html_tag' => "h1",

In order to make a page load with accordions collapsed by default, please edit medicare/bt_elements.js file in your wp-content/plugins folder and locate the following statements:

$( '.tabsVertical' ).each(function(){
 $( this ).find( '.tabAccordionTitle' ).first().click();
 });

Remove these statements from file or comment them out and your accordions will remain closed on page load.

41. How to add new Font icons?

In order to add new Font icons, you should customize the theme. Please do the following steps:

1. First of all you need to import your font file. 

2. Please take a look at the top of style.css file and you will find @font-face declaration. You need to import your own font files in the same manner as FontAwesome and the rest and declare the font-family as 'myFont' or something similar.

3. Then you need to search for all 'data-ico-fa' in the style.crush.css file and create respective statements for your font. For example when you locate

*[data-ico-fa]:before {
    font-family: FontAwesome;
    content: attr(data-ico-fa);
    }

you need to create 

 *[data-ico-mf]:before {
    font-family: myFont;
    content: attr(data-ico-mf);
    }

etc.

4. Then, you need to create new file in Medicare plugin folder called bt_mf_icons.php. As an example of how the PHP file should look, you can use one of the existing fonts (bt_fa_icons.php) and copy their files' content, and replace it with your glyph codes.

Or, you can use the following example, and just replace the glyph codes (numbers: f100, f101, f102 etc.) with the ones from your icon set. 

function bt_mf_icons(){
 $arr = array(
     '  ' => 'no_icon', 
     'icon-01' => 'mf_' . '_f100',
     'icon-02' => 'mf_' . '_f101',
     'icon-03' => 'mf_' . '_f102',
     'icon-04' => 'mf_' . '_f103',
     'icon-05' => 'mf_' . '_f104',
);

The glyph codes are defined in style.css file of your font. Here is the example:

<?php
$set = strtolower( basename(__FILE__, '.php') );
$$set = array(
    'icon-01:before {
  content: "\f100";
}
    'icon-02:before {
  content: "\f101";
}
    'icon-03:before {
  content: "\f102";
}
    'icon-04:before {
  content: "\f103";
}
    'icon-05:before {
  content: "\f104";
}---->

5. Finally, you need to edit medicare.php in your plugin's folder, search for bt_fa_icons() and add respective statements for bt_mf_icons() as well. For example to change all occurrences of 

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

to

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_mf_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

Also, you need to edit bt_custom_icons.php in your plugin's folder, scroll to the bottom and add respective statements for bt_mf_icons() as well. You need to change

$arr = array( 'Font Awesome' => bt_fa_icons(), 'S7' => bt_s7_icons(), 'Custom' => $arr );

to

$arr = array( 'Font Awesome' => bt_fa_icons(), 'S7' => bt_s7_icons(), 'Custom' => $arr,  'My Custom Icons' => bt_custom_icons()  );

42. Is there some way I can see all the icons of Shopscape theme?

We use different sets of icons in Shopscape theme: Font AwesomeStroke 7 and Custom Icons: Shop1, Shop2Toys1Toys2Toys3Toys4Fashion and Shopscape.

45. Theme update - Ad Astra to Ajani

Once you receive an email that new theme version is available, you will notice that its name has changed.

The Ad Astra theme is now named Ajani, but note that no changes were made in the theme code and you will be able to update it easily.

In this case there are two ways to update the theme.

1) FTP Update

Download newest theme version from ThemeForest Download section. Since you already have the theme installed, you can download just 'Installable WordPress file only'.

In case you want to use this method, we suggest that you use Filezilla to access your server. Here is the article that explains how Filezilla works.

You need to extract theme file from the zipped folder you downloaded, and upload it to /wp-content/themes folder on your server.

*PLEASE NOTE - you will not be asked to overwrite the existing files because they are named differently. You just need to upload the new theme folder.

*The example is the zip file from Medicare theme but the process is the same for all themes.

2) Update theme via ZIP file upload

This method is available since WP version 5.5. Please follow these steps: 



Once the new theme is uploaded, go to Appearance >Themes panel, deactivate old Ad Astra version, and activate new Ajani theme version.

Then, go to Plugins panel on your dashboard. First, deactivate old Ad Astra plugin, and then install and activate new Ajani plugin (note that you need to do it in this order to prevent site from crashing).

Once the new Ajani theme and plugin are activated, you can proceed to delete old Ad Astra theme and plugin.

Note that this is a one time thing, all updates after that will have the theme name Ajani, so you will be able to use standard procedure for theme update.



And lastly, if you are using a child theme, you will need to change every occurrence of 'ad-astra' name with 'ajani' in child theme's functions.php file.

46. How do I remove the bar with Total and leave contact form?

Since plugin version 2.2.1 it is possible to remove total bar in Cost Calculator general settings panel.

 $( this ).find( '.tabAccordionTitle' ).first().click();
 });

Remove these statements from file or comment them out and your accordions will remain closed on page load.

48. How to choose Home page version?

When you decide which Homepage version you are going to use, then please follow the next steps:

  1. Set your chosen Homepage version as Front page in Settings > Reading Settings panel.

     2.  In the chosen Homepage editor locate the Override Global Settings – at the bottom of page editor:



3. All the settings (logo, alternate logo, colors, menu type, typography etc.) should be set the same in Customization panel.

Have a look at the following example - copying accent color (note: example is on the Craft Beer theme, but it works the same on all themes):



Once you are done with setting main settings in Customization panel (logo, accent and alternate colors, menu layout etc.) then make sure to edit Primary Menu according to your needs (remove unnecessary Homepages etc.).


For more info and detailed instructions please refer to our Online Theme Documentation.

49. How to add custom icons?

Please refer to the instruction below on how to add custom icons to your theme:

1. Create icon folder (e.g. MyIcon) with required fields:

Make sure that your icon folder contains .ttf and .woff files, as well as CSS file with icons' names and glyph codes. If it doesn't have these files, you could use IcoMoon to generate the files.


2. Create PHP file for your icons:

The PHP file should be named as the icons (for example, MyIcon). As an example of how the PHP file should look, you can use one of the existing fonts and copy their files' content, and replace it with your glyph codes.


Or, you can use the following example, and just replace the glyph codes (numbers: f100, f101, f102 etc.) with the ones from your icon set. 

<?php
$set = strtolower( basename(__FILE__, '.php') );
$$set = array(
     'icon-01 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f100',
     'icon-02 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f101',
     'icon-03 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f102',
     'icon-04 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f103',
     'icon-05 (myicon set)' => $set . '_f104'
);

The glyph codes are defined in style.css file (located in downloaded file from e.g. IcoMoon). Here is the example:

.icon-01:before {
  content: "\f100";
}
.icon-02:before {
  content: "\f101";
}
.icon-03:before {
  content: "\f102";
}
.icon-04:before {
  content: "\f103";
}
.icon-05:before {
  content: "\f104";
}

3. Upload icon folder:

Once you have the files, please go to \wp-content\themes\your-theme-name\fonts folder, on your server, and create a new folder, in the fonts folder, and name it as you named your icons (MyIcon).
The new fonts folder should contain .ttf and .woff files, and php file.


4. Edit theme files - Step 01:

In admin-style.php file, in \wp-content\themes\your-theme-name folder, remove the following line of code, which is located at the end:

', array() );

and replace it with the following code.

@font-face{
    font-family:"MyIcon";
    src:url("' . get_parent_theme_file_uri( 'fonts/MyIcon/MyIcon.woff' ) . '") format("woff") , url("' . get_parent_theme_file_uri( 'fonts/MyIcon/MyIcon.ttf' ) . '") format("truetype");
}
*[data-ico-myicon]:before {
    font-family: MyIcon;
    content:attr(data-ico-myicon);
}
.bt_bb_icon_preview.bt_bb_icon_preview_myicon {
    font-family: MyIcon;
}', array() );

57. Installing Demo Data

Before importing our demo content, please make sure that you have installed and activated all our required plugins (and WooCommerce if you intend to use it).

The best practice is to start with fresh WordPress installation without previous content. If you have already added a new content, please make sure to do the backup in order to save that content. After the backup, delete all content and you can start with the next steps:  

The procedure is as follows:

  1. Login to the wp-admin panel
  2. Go to Tools > BT Import


3.  The first step of import process is to, once again, check your server settings. On this screen you will see if you have enough memory and script timeout, and if your PHP version is up to date.

Additionally, you will get a notification if you have previously installed our demo content.

Once you adjust all the settings, click ‘Start the import process’ button.


4.  On the next panel you will see available demos. The number of homepages for each demo is noted, and you can click on the button ‘Visit demo’, and see how each demo looks like.


Click on the demo you want to install, and then click on ‘Continue and import this demo’ button at the bottom of the screen.


5.  The following step is to select images’ download method.

Here is how each option works:

  1. First option, ‘Download images to your server and create all thumbnails‘, is the best option and the one we recommend.

However, for this option all server requirements need to be met. Additionally, make sure that curl library is available and enabled.

     2. Second option, ‘Download images to your server but do not create thumbnails‘, will still download images  to your server, but will not create necessary thumbnails (to speed up the import process).

If you are going to use this method, install and activate ‘Regenerate Thumbnails’ plugin, and once the demo import is finished, regenerate thumbnails for all images.

     3. Last option, ‘Use images hosted on our servers‘, will import demo the fastest, but the images will remain      on our server.

What this means is that you need to keep BT WordPress Importer plugin active until you replace our images with yours. If you deactivate the plugin, the images will not be visible.

Once you finish with demo import and setting the homepage, you will be able to download the images from our server (refer to the additional step below).


Once you select images’ import method, click on the ‘Start the import’ button.

Depending on your server environment, and previously selected import method, the demo import process might take some time. Please be patient and don’t exit the import panel, otherwise you will stop the import.

When the import is finished, you will see the following screen. Click on ‘Select homepage’ button.


6.   The last step is to select the homepage. Please note that some demos have multiple homepages, and some only one.

If demo has multiple homepages, you can click on ‘Visit homepage’ button and see how each individual page looks like. Once you select desired homepage, click on it, and then on ‘Set this homepage’ button.


Once the homepage is selected, its settings (accent colors, fonts, footer, etc.) will be set in Customize panel and applied to inner pages.

Additional step:

If you selected ‘Use images hosted on our servers‘ option, you will now see ‘Download external files‘ tab on your screen.

When you click on it, you will see how many images are left on our server, and you’ll be able to download them to your server.

Note that you don’t have to download all of them at once. You can start the process, download first few images, and then stop. When you go to download tab again, you can start the process again, and it will download only images that are left on our server.


If you installed WooCommerce plugin, go to WooCommerce >Settings panel and set its pages (Shop, Cart, etc.)

If you are getting 404 error on inner pages, go to Settings >Permalinks panel and click ‘Save changes’ button to flush the permalink structure.

That’s it, the demo is imported! :) 



Please note that screenshot examples are from our 'Avantage' theme, but the steps are the same for all of them.

58. Sticky Header scroll

With the latest theme version, sticky header scroll and offset can be defined in inline JS.

The code for sticky header is defined in header.misc.js file in /themes/your-theme-name/framework/js folder, but you can change the following values by adding them to Custom JS field in Appearance >Customize >General Settings panel.

First value is:

window.btStickyOffset = 300;

The number defines after how many pixels the sticky header appears (when scrolling down).

Second value is:

window.btStickyOpenTimeout = 50;

This value defines number of milliseconds it takes for sticky to show up (previous value 'stickyOffset' needs to be defined).

Note that we recommend this value to be over 50 to avoid cutting off sticky header.

Third value is:

window.btStickyCloseTimeout = 200;

This value defines number of milliseconds it takes for sticky to close and switch to standard header (when scrolling up).

Note that this value needs to be same or higher than the transition length defined with CSS.

Lastly, to define transition length, you can add the following CSS to Additional CSS field in Customize panel.

.btMenuHorizontal.btStickyHeaderActive.btStickyHeaderOpen .mainHeader {
    transition: transform 200ms ease;
}

This number defines the speed of transition when activating / deactivating sticky header.

59. How to make a page load with accordion items closed by default

In order to make a page load with accordions collapsed by default, please edit fitness-club/bt_elements.js file in your wp-content/plugins folder and locate the following statements:

$( '.tabsVertical' ).each(function(){ $( this ).find( '.tabAccordionTitle' ).first().click(); });

Remove these statements from file or comment them out and your accordions will remain closed on page load.

Once you enter Bold Timeline's purchase code you will be able to receive notifications about new plugin versions, and update it through your dashboard, in Updates panel.

}

63. How to edit Footer area?

On Appearance > Customize > Header and Footer panel there is a Footer Page Slug

This field should contain the slug of the page which serves as a template for footer area.  All pages inherits settings, elements and shortcodes of the page referenced via this field.

65. How to update installed theme? Will it change data?

Once the new theme version is available, user who purchased the theme should get email note from the Envato (ThemeForest).



There are three ways to update the theme:

1) FTP Update

Download newest theme version from ThemeForest Download section. Since you already have the theme installed, you can download just 'Installable WordPress file only'.

In case you want to use this method, we suggest that you use Filezilla to access your server. Here is the article that explains how Filezilla works.

You need to extract theme file from the zipped folder you downloaded, and upload it to /wp-content/themes folder on your server. You will be prompted to overwrite the existing files. Select 'Yes', and the theme will update.

*The example is the zip file from Medicare theme but the process is the same for all themes.

2) Update theme via ZIP file upload

This method is available since WP version 5.5. Please follow these steps: 

3) Envato Market plugin

Enable automatic theme update with the Envato Market Plugin. Once you install and activate this plugin, every time a new theme version becomes available, you will be able to update it with just one click.

 You will need to go to the WordPress Updates page and navigate to the Themes section. The new version will be included in the section just like the themes from the WordPress repository.

* Whichever of these three methods you use for theme update, you will have to update theme plugin (and possibly some other required plugins) as well.

For plugin updates, you will get notification on your dashboard when new version is available.

Please note...

If you made any changes in the source code you'll need to reapply them to the new version of the theme or they will be lost.

To prevent this, you can use child theme.

All settings in Customize panel and your content will be preserved.



For more info and detailed instructions please refer to our Online Theme Documentation.

66. Installing Demo Content

The best way to start is to install demo content. If you want to install demo content please do the following:

First, delete all sample content (posts and pages) which is automatically created when
WordPress is installed. If you have already added a new content, please make sure to do the backup in order to save the content. After the backup, delete all content and you can start with the next steps:  

1. Start with fresh WordPress installation and make sure that theme and required plugins are installed. Since some demos contain WooCommerce data, please install WooCommerce plugin. Once you finish with the installation, you can remove WooCommerce plugin if you do not need it.


 


2. Go to ‘Tools > BT Import’ and select demo which you want to install. 

*Make sure that you select demo in correct language – there are three RTL demos in Arabic, and the rest are LTR in English.

 


3. Wait until you get message that import is finished. If you see red colored error message, just repeat the import until you get the message that import is finished. Import is incremental process and will finish eventually.

4. If you have imported demo with WooCommerce content, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Display and select Shop as Shop Page; open Checkout tab and select Cart as Cart Page and Checkout as Checkout Page; open Accounts tab and select My Account as My Account Page.

if ( ! function_exists( 'boldthemes_header_headline' ) ) {
    function boldthemes_header_headline( $arg = array() ) {

            $dash  = '';
            $use_dash = boldthemes_get_option( 'sidebar_use_dash' );
            if ( $use_dash ) $dash  = apply_filters( 'boldthemes_header_headline_dash', 'bottom' );
            $title = is_front_page() ? get_bloginfo( 'description' ) : wp_title( '', false );
            if ( BoldThemesFramework::$page_for_header_id != '' ) {
                $feat_image = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id( BoldThemesFramework::$page_for_header_id ) );
                
                $excerpt = boldthemes_get_the_excerpt( BoldThemesFramework::$page_for_header_id );

96. Cost Calculator purchase code

Please note that our premium plugin, Cost Calculator, comes bundled with the theme and therefor doesn't have separate purchase code.

Note that you are not required to purchase the plugin separately if you are using one of our themes, and you shouldn't enter theme's purchase code.

The only purpose of the product license is to allow people to update plugin through wp-admin panel, but since you got it together with the theme you will get the necessary updates with new theme versions.

You can find more information on bundled plugins on the following link.

100. How to add new Font icons?

In order to add new Font icons, you should customize the theme. Please do the following steps:

1. First of all you need to import your font file. You will need to import .eot, .svg, .ttf, and .woff files of your font, and name them the same. For example 'myFont'. Files need to be added to \wp-content\themes\your-theme-name\fonts folder.

2. Please take a look at the top of style.crush.css (or style.css) file and you will find @font-face declaration. You need to import your own font files in the same manner as FontAwesome for example, and declare the font-family as 'myFont' or any name you used for your font (*note that it has to be the same name you used for files).


3. Then you need to search for 'data-ico-fa' in the style.crush.css (or style.css) file and create respective statements for your font. 


For example when you locate:

*[data-ico-fa]:before {
    font-family: FontAwesome;
    content: attr(data-ico-fa);
    }

you need to create:

*[data-ico-mf]:before {
    font-family: myFont;
    content: attr(data-ico-mf);
    }

etc.

*Please note that mf stands for the name of the font (in our example myFont), so if you named your font differently, you need to use acronym that matches your font's name. This refers to all the code that is added for new icons, as well as file names.

4. Then, you need to create new file in theme plugin's folder called bt_mf_icons.php. The file should be added to \wp-content\plugins\your-theme-name folder.


As an example of how the PHP file should look, you can use one of the existing fonts (bt_fa_icons.php) and copy their files' content, and replace it with your glyph codes.

Or, you can use the following example, and just replace the glyph codes (numbers: f100, f101, f102 etc.) with the ones from your icon set. 

function bt_mf_icons(){
 $arr = array(
     '  ' => 'no_icon', 
     'icon-01' => 'mf_' . '_f100',
     'icon-02' => 'mf_' . '_f101',
     'icon-03' => 'mf_' . '_f102',
     'icon-04' => 'mf_' . '_f103',
     'icon-05' => 'mf_' . '_f104',
);

The glyph codes are defined in style.css file of your font. Here is the example:

<?php
$set = strtolower( basename(__FILE__, '.php') );
$$set = array(
    'icon-01:before {
  content: "\f100";
}
    'icon-02:before {
  content: "\f101";
}
    'icon-03:before {
  content: "\f102";
}
    'icon-04:before {
  content: "\f103";
}
    'icon-05:before {
  content: "\f104";
}------>


5. Finally, you need to edit php file in your plugin's folder, search for bt_fa_icons() and add respective statements for bt_mf_icons() as well. The file is in \wp-content\plugins\your-theme-name folder (it is the file named as the theme).

*The example is from our Industrial theme but the process is the same for all themes.

For example to change all occurrences of:

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

to:

$icon_arr = array_merge( bt_fa_icons(), bt_mf_icons(), bt_s7_icons(), bt_custom_icons() );

112. Installing Demo Content

The best way to start is to install demo content. If you want to install demo content please do the following:

First, delete all sample content (posts and pages) which is automatically created when
WordPress is installed. If you have already added a new content, please make sure to do the backup in order to save the content. After the backup, delete all content and you can start with the next steps:  

1. Start with fresh WordPress installation and make sure that theme and required plugins are installed. Since some demos contain WooCommerce data, please install WooCommerce plugin. Once you finish with the installation, you can remove WooCommerce plugin if you do not need it.


 


2. Go to ‘Tools > BT Import’ and select demo which you want to install.


 


3. Wait until you get message that import is finished. If you see red colored error message, just repeat the import until you get the message that import is finished. Import is incremental process and will finish eventually.

4. If you have imported demo with WooCommerce content, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Display and select Shop as Shop Page; open Checkout tab and select Cart as Cart Page and Checkout as Checkout Page; open Accounts tab and select My Account as My Account Page.

118. How to add custom Icon Font to Bold Timeline

Please refer to the instruction below on how to add custom icons to Bold Timeline:

1. Copy the font files to /assets/fonts/

Make sure that your icon files contains .ttf and .woff files, as well as CSS file with icons' names and glyph codes. If it doesn't have these files, you could use IcoMoon to generate the files.

2. Create PHP file for your icons:

Usually you will name PHP file as the icons (for example, MyIcon.php) and saved to /assets/php/ . As an example of how the PHP file should look, you can use one of the existing fonts and copy their files' content, and replace it with your glyph codes. Make sure to rename the function name in the file in line with the name of your icon set (for example function my_custom_icons())

The glyph codes are defined in style.css file (located in downloaded file from e.g. IcoMoon). Here is the example:

.icon-01:before {  content: "\f100";
}
.icon-02:before {  content: "\f101";
}
.icon-03:before {  content: "\f102";
}
.icon-04:before {  content: "\f103";
}
.icon-05:before {  content: "\f104";
}

3. Edit plugin files  - bold_timeline_item.php:

In \content_elements\bold_timeline_item\bold_timeline_item.php file,  locate the following line of code:

require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../assets/php/fa_icons.php' );
require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../assets/php/s7_icons.php' );
require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../assets/php/FontAwesome5Brands.php' );
$icon_arr = array( 'Font Awesome' => bold_timeline_fa_icons(), 'S7' => bold_timeline_s7_icons(), 'FontAwesome5Brands' => bold_timeline_FontAwesome5Brands_icons() );

here, you need to add the reference to your newly created php file and map the function within it. Here is how you need to modify the existing code:

require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../assets/php/fa_icons.php' );
require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../assets/php/s7_icons.php' );
require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../assets/php/FontAwesome5Brands.php' );
require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../assets/php/MyIcon.php' );
$icon_arr = array( 'Font Awesome' => bold_timeline_fa_icons(), 'S7' => bold_timeline_s7_icons(), 'FontAwesome5Brands' => bold_timeline_FontAwesome5Brands_icons(), 'MyCustomIcons' => my_custom_icons() );

note the require once statement and the additional member of the $icon_arr at the last line of code snippet.

4. Edit theme files - Additional CSS:

You also need to add the following statements to your theme css:

@font-face {
    font-family: 'MyCustomIcons';
    src: url(assets/fonts/MyIcon.woff?v=1.1.1) format('woff'),url(assets/fonts/MyIcon.ttf?v=1.1.1) format('truetype');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
    }
[data-ico-fa5b]:before {
    font-family: MyCustomIcons;
    content: attr(data-ico-fa5b);
    }

Remeber, you need to map every glyph in your Icon set as for fa5b glyph in the example above just as you did in MyIcon.php 

In the example above fa5b is the hex code of the glyph as defined in the MyIcon.php. The statement 

[data-ico-fa5b]:before {
    font-family: MyCustomIcons;
    content: attr(data-ico-fa5b);
    }

needs to be added for every glyph and string fa5b needs to be replaced with the respective hex code

5. Add custom Admin CSS:

Finally you need to add the following statements to your admin theme css (or plugin's style-admin.css file) in order to display the proper icons in the icon selection control:

@font-face {
    font-family: 'MyCustomIcons';
    src: url(assets/fonts/MyIcon.woff?v=1.1.1) format('woff'),url(assets/fonts/MyIcon.ttf?v=1.1.1) format('truetype');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
    }
.bt_bb_icon_preview_fa5b {
    font-family: MyCustomIcons;
}
[data-ico-fa5b]:before {
    font-family: MyCustomIcons;
}

Again, remember that you need to map every glyph in your Icon set as for fa5b glyph in the example above just as you did in MyIcon.php 

In the example above fa5b is the hex code of the glyph as defined in the MyIcon.php. The statement 

.bt_bb_icon_preview_fa5b {    font-family: MyCustomIcons;
}
[data-ico-fa5b]:before {    font-family: MyCustomIcons;
}

needs to be added for every glyph and string fa5b needs to be replaced with the respective hex code

119. Will I loose content when updating the plugin?

120. How to set initial value for Text item?
