    After your update 1.1 the hover and the background on big featured image is now black.

    I want to change it back to white, but didn`t find the right place to edit it. I checked the

    theme css, prettyPhoto css and custom.js? Any ideas?

    Thank you in advanced!


    Can you post a link to your website please?


    Hey Dude,

    thanks for your quick response! Great! Here is the link to my site:

    On your habitat live demo it`s the same effect since kriesi update 1.1. Maybe it was on purpose.

    Two additional problems I have to solve!

    1. first of all: In Top-Nav-Menu active is not displayed in strong or different color? (after importing dummy content)

    2. secondly: I`m using WPML to make it biligual and I know you advise to use WP multisite feature and I had

    read the related posts. Also I contacted Bruno van Branden who changed the code by hand. But he did it only for

    the AVISIO-Theme. Any Tipps or helpful suggestions to make it WPML ready in the future?

    Thanx for your awesome themes and your great support!

    Kind Regards,

    Frank Stratmann



    1) I can’t see a black background (featured image area) – did you solve the problem? I tested the site with Firefox and IE8, IE9, Opera + Safari (Win)

    2) You get more styling options, if you use the Menu Manager to create your own menu. It can be found under Appearance > Menus. An useful how-to can be found here: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -the-menu-behaves-weird

    If you don’t want to use the menu manager, you can edit following code in style1.css:

    .nav li a {
    border-left:1px solid #ccc;

    Add css attributes (like a color value or font-weight) as you like.

    2) The code Bruno uses for the Avisio theme should also work with Habitat (same framework). However you can also set up a multisite system to host several sites. I’m not aware of any updates which will make Habitat WPML compatible…


    Hey Dude,

    thanks for your reply and your help. It`s strange, because I also checked it with different browser and on other computers.

    The effect was gone. But localy on my machine with IE8 I still had this problem. Right now I found the solution. It`s in

    custom.js between line 1107 and 1118:

    preloadingDone: function()


    skipSwitch = false;









    I changed it to white, problem solved! Maybe Kriesi had add this function because of the white dots thing. Anyway the

    custom.js or IE8 still have little ohter bugs. When I lunched wp-login.php this error appears:

    Message: ‘slideShowArray’ is undefined

    Line: 33

    Char: 2

    Code: 0


    I am not sure if it`s important or not to solve? Last at all my top nav problem. When you visit the site main menu “home”

    for example is not displayed strong and if you click on any top nav item neither is displayed in strong or bold! I am not sure

    if it`s a styling problem. Here is the code line of styles1.css:

    #top .nav .current-menu-item a strong{

    font-weight: bold;


    I think WP or the theme does not get the activ state info or whatever could be something else! Maybe I should take a look

    at the Menu Manager to fix it. That`s it. Thanks for your support.

    Cheers Frank



    WP is setting the menu class for the current menu item, for whatever reason the CSS either isn’t present in the theme or is using a different name.

    Add this to the end of style.css:

    #top .nav  li.current_page_item a, #top .nav li.current-menu-item a {
    font-weight: bold;

    This will add the bold styling for the active page.



    Hey James,

    Thanks a lot for your help! This fixed it. Any ideas about the JS-Error-Message caused by custom.js on wp-login.php?



    It’s very likely related to an old version of prettyphoto (lightbox). We released an update which includes the newest version of the lightbox.


    Hey Dude,

    thanks for your repley. I am wondering a bit because I am running the newest version of prettyPhoto 3.0.3 and your update 1.1.

    An additional tipp for you guys!

    In your live demo on and on Themeforest habitat still has 404 errors for portfolio-subpages. In your own interest Kriesi should fix it. After your update I had the same problem but I only had to retype the permalinks of these pages. That`s it!

    Kind Regards



    Thanks for the hint – I’ll report it to Kriesi :)

    I am using the newest version of prettyPhoto 3.0.3 and your update-files of 1.1. Thanks

    in advanced…




    you can try following:

    In custom.js (located in the folder “js”) replace following code:

    "theme": theme_selected /* light_rounded / dark_rounded / light_square / dark_square */ });


    "theme": theme_selected, /* light_rounded / dark_rounded / light_square / dark_square */
    overlay_gallery: false /* If set to true, a gallery will overlay the fullscreen image on mouse over */


    Hey Dude,

    Thanks for your tipp and your help! I replaced the code,

    but unfortunately it didn`t fix the JS conflict.

    Any other ideas?
