    Lot’s of questions, as we are building a site. Apologies in advance.

    2 Questions about Sermons.

    1. Is there a way to show the “latest sermons” in a widget so I can assign it to a sidebar on sub pages? Similar to tweets. I did find the one for the columns. But see nothing in widgets

    2. On the column view front page, the template inserts a header which appears to be generated from the template. Is there a way to disable or edit those, as you can see on our front page, I would like to have 3 matching image headers.. is this at all possible?

    you can view:


    Hi southlakebaptist,

    For #1, the framework needs a slight tweak to get the widget working. You’ll need to open up the theme files on your server via FTP and navigate to framework>php>class-framework-widgets.php.

    Search for:

    function avia_portfoliobox()

    $this->avia_term = 'portfolio_entries';
    $this->avia_post_type = 'portfolio';
    $this->avia_new_query = ''; //set a custom query here

    Change where it says ‘portfolio’ to ‘sermon’ . Save the file back on your server in the same spot and then you can add the widget “Incarnation Latest Portfolio’ widget wherever you want the sermons to show up as a widget.

    2) Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    #top.home .dynamic_el_4 .flex_column_1 .dynamic-column-title {
    display: none;

    This will hide the column header for that single column, however i’m not sure of a way to easily duplicate the same header style without adding a completely new title class or adding so much new css to modify the title (but that would all need to be redone if the column content was re-ordered or moved in any way).




    Thanks Devin,

    The above edit did work great, but it’s showing an icon on the sidebar.. you can see here:

    is it possible to change that?


    You’ll need to set a preview image for the video so that the icon is an image instead. If you just want to remove it all together you can use:

    #portfoliobox-2 .news-thumb {
    display: none;




    Where would this code go? Also, just asking for future reference, is there away to just set a default icon for that?



    Please add the code to css/custom.css or the quick css field.

    Best regards,



    I can’t upload the sermon over 2M size mp3. I think most of sermon is over the 10M each.

    how can i do>

    2. I don’t need social icon and countdown area. How can i remove the area. and then I want to move up entire below area




    Hi mjsoy714,

    You need to contact your hosting provider and ask them to modify your php.ini file to allow for larger uploads.

    To remove the space reserved for the timer and social icons, Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    .container_wrap_header_meta {
    display: none;




    it worked .. thanks.


    Hi I talked with my host supporter, they modify my upload size to 50 M . but still show up the message 8M .

    I upload my file (23M mp3 sermon file) with FTP, but this file is not shown up Media Library list.

    How can I do?


    Hi mjsoy714,

    Glad that Devin helped you. :)




    is there somebody to response what I asked?

    I talked with my host provider as Devin mentioned, they modified my upload size to 50 M . but still show up the message ” Limited 8M” .

    so, I upload my file (23M mp3 sermon file) with FTP, but this file is not shown up Media Library list.

    How can I do?


    It may need to be changed in your htaccess file as well then. In your root wordpress folder look for a file called .htaccess. Open that up and add the following code inside of it:

    php_value upload_max_filesize 50M
    php_value post_max_size 50M

    That should do it if the host has allowed the size already.

    If you’re uploading via FTP, you can just use the URL directly to the file which would be something like

    It just depends on when you uploaded it and if you have wordpress set up to separate your uploads into monthly folders.




    thank you so much Devin. Now I did nothing, but anyway thank you for your help..

    I will do as you mentioned.



    If that doesn’t work try to do this steps

    1) Use any ftp to download your php.ini file.

    2) Modify that file to have the following lines:

    memory_limit = 100M

    upload_max_filesize = 192M

    post_max_size = 100M

    file_uploads = On

    3) Save, close and rename that file to “php5.ini” and upload it to the wp-admin folder of your wordpress installation.




    Hi. I followed the recommendation you gave “msjoy714” … I now have a 64 MG limit. However, when I try to download the tracks under Sermons, it only allows me to save one track. One sermon typically has 6 tracks. So, how will I be able to download a full sermon??? Our site is currently held here: as you can see the sermon for central is only showing one track.


    Hi ChurchofChristatYork,

    I’m not sure what you mean. Do you mean adding a file to the sermon post? If so, it only supports a single file. So each “track” would have to combined into a single file or added into the visual editor as a link to download the file.




    I will try this. But for some reason, my “Sermons” Page doesn’t have the info that I inserted in the main box. When I am in edit mode on the sermons page, I have added all of the tracks in that box. But when I click on both “Sermons” links from the home page, that info does not show. What is going wrong with this. I have edited my permalink already.


    Try changing your permalinks to the default setting. I’m getting a 404 error when trying to view a sermon page.

    In your Theme Settings>Sermons, make sure the field for the sermon url field is set with a name that is *not* used for any other url name for a page or post. IE – If it is “sermons” and you have a page named “sermons” things won’t work properly.


    At this point, I need to speak with someone who can work on my site. Certain items just simply are not working. I am not a wordpress expert and need to speak with someone who can help me figure everything out. Most things are completed, but certain things are not clicking: like, I have the donations button, but what now? It’s not going anywhere. Also, how do I make a page to sell our cd’s. Also, I cannot for life of me find where I inputed our service ours and location. Obviously, I have found it before but cannot now. I have been through everything on the dashboard to try and find this. Also, the music no longer automatically plays on the pages. Ideally, I would like to find a way for the site to play music, continuously, when loading the home page. As you can see, I need help. Not far away from completing the site, but obviously a few KEY elements still left unresovled. :-/


    Most options will not be in the main wordpress dashboard. You need to look in the Theme Options for the theme for much of that.

    Outside of posting here, you can look into hiring a freelance developer or just a regular wordpress “expert” who can walk you through a lot of the things outside of what the theme offers (selling products, setting up donations etc).

    Auto-Loading music on page load is a big negative for viewing a site. I would never recommend doing that. You would have to find a plugin or something similar if you wanted it.

    Most of your information is probably added into pages. Expand the wordpress Pages area and you should be able to just click on a page and see its content. The theme also has templates than can be applied to pages so if you see a template selected in the Layout box on the right of a page, you can edit additional information that is displayed on that page view the Themes Template Builder>That template name.




    Hi. I have looked in Theme Options and Dynamic Themes, and was able to figure out a few things. However, I cannot remember where I edited the section in the middle:… — do you see the area on the frontpage, underneath the orange area, where it has 3 areas: What We Believe, Sermons, and Contact? Question 1: what is the proper name for this area? Question 2: Where do I edit this…. the picture under sermons is all of a sudden not appearing.



    That looks like a Columns element set to 3 columns. They each either are populated in the template for that page (inside the columns element) or they are set to be Widgets and then would be in the Appearance>Widgets area with the name of the template.
