  1. Hi

    May i know how to setup the 4 column with images and text below it, same as the below part of “welcome to i-excel”

  2. Hi, Thanks for this wonderful i-excel theme. It is very good and beautiful. I can not find any settings for footer widgets. Where are they? There are no any settings in widget area, nor in theme options. I am also not able to find any setting two change footer widget columns (3 columns for example)


    1. The max size is defined in CSS, line number 928

      .site-header .home-link img
      max-height: 64px;
      max-width: 280px;

      overwrite the value and paste it in “Appearance” > “Customize” > “Layout Options” > “Additional style”

  3. Love the theme, set up seems quite easy. Where might I find information on the Social Links? Would like to remove some as they are not needed.

    1. Go to “Appearance” > “Customize” > “Social Links” and empty the fields for the unwanted one.
      Emptying the field will remove the icons from the bar

  4. I’m having a little trouble getting started with this theme and building a slider.
    In the instructions:

    1. Go to “itrans Slider” on your dashboard menu items.
    2. Create Categories for multiple slider.
    3. Add slides for the sliders (slide featured image is used as slide image) .

    I’m not sure where to add the slides – or assign categories to images.

    Sorry for the beginners question..

        1. 1. For wide layout go to “Appearance” > “Customize” > “layout Options” > “Wide Layout” (your contents will remain within 1200px container)
          2. To have wider “Blocks” forcing full width beyond 1200px, use shortcode [tx] > “Fancy Block” turn on “Force Fullwidth”
          3. To animate something , place it within shortcode [tx] > “Animate”

  5. I am using the I-excel theme. I would like to replace the search icon on the right top corner (on the header) for the little shopping cart…..
    or remove the search completely…..I don’t need it
    Thanks 🙂

    1. i-spirit has the options “Colors and Font” in “i-spirit Options”
      Further it has multiple header styles in “i-spirit Options” > “header Optiions”

      1. Thanks for the information. Ours is a small non profit club so we are on a tight budget. I will ask the directors if I can have funds for the upgrade.
        If I upgrade from i-Excel to i-Spirit will I need to re-build the site or need to run it as a child theme, or is the transition seamless?

        1. They share common framework, only the shortcodes changes (tx to nx) if you are using any shortcode. i-spirit has the #1 premium slider plugin (slider revolution) prepackaged in it, so you have to work on it a little as well.
