Trouble installing one click demo

    Hi there,

    I recently bought the Olsen theme to use with my WordPress.com website.

    From my understanding it supports one click demo but I don’t seem able to do this. I keep getting a message saying I need to upgrade to a ‘Business’ WordPress plan to access plugins, including one click install.

    Are you able to help me install the look of Olsen’s demo for my own website please?

    Also, can you clarify if the one click install automatically copies the template and layout of Olsen’s demo website to my own & if I then go about replacing the demo content & images with my own? Any tips for replicating the appearance of Olsen’s demo content would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    The blog I need help with is casacommunications.com.au.

    Hi there,
    This is the Olsen for WordPress.com support forum. Please contact us at support[at]cssigniter.com for more help on the Olsen theme, which is a totally different theme from the equivalent WordPress.com one.

    In general WordPress.com will not permit installing plugins in the Plan you are currently in.

    Best Regards

    Hi there,
    Thanks for your reply. I think I’m in the right place as I bought the Olsen theme to use with my WordPress.com website. Please let me know if this is not the case.
    Thank you for clarifying that about the plugins – all noted.
    Can you please assist me in creating the ‘About Me’ box in the sidebar widget?
    I’ve gone to Customise > Widgets > Sidebar > Add a Widget. However, no Theme widgets appear in the list of those available.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Also, is it possible to add a Houzz icon to the social media menu please?
    And finally, can you please guide me through how to display testimonials on the home page?
    Many thanks!

    Hi there,
    Again this is not the correct support forum for the version of Olsen you are using.

    Please contact support[at]cssigniter.com for more help on this.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for your help so far.
    Can you please let me know if it’s possible to add a Houzz icon to the social media menus? The profile I want to link to on Houzz is: https://www.houzz.com.au/pro/juliafairley
    Thank you!

    Hi again,
    One more question for you: I keep having trouble with an ‘About’ page on my site.

    I would have included a general ‘About’ page in the main menu and would like two different pages nestled under the main ‘About’ page, like this:

    About
    >About [name]
    >About [company name]

    The ‘About’ page with my name seems to be working. Thought ‘About’ page for my company is shaded in red when I open the customiser and has (Invalid) next to it in brackets.

    If you could guide me through fixing this I would be really grateful. Thank you!

    Hi there,
    Currently Houzz is not supported natively.Have a look here on which are supported https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/social-links-menu/

    You can use a trick to add it though. Go ahead and add a different social menu item. And add

    #menu-item-XX:before {
        content: '';
        background: url(https://st.hzcdn.com/res/2824/en-AU/pic/houzz_logo.svg);
        width: 100%;
        height: 22px;
        position: absolute;
        display: block;
        background-size: contain;
        z-index: 999;
        background-color: #fff;
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }

    where XX is your menu item ID.
    Getting the menu ID is tricky, but I can help you identify it.

    Hi there,

    I’m still having difficulty adding the Houzz logo and am a bit confused.

    Here’s a webpage from Houzz with buttons and logos, with code that might help:

    https://www.houzz.com.au/buttonsAndBadges

    Here’s the text for the logo I want (the little ‘h’ symbol) from the webpage:

    <table style=”width: 20px;” cellpadding=”0″ cellspacing=”0″><tr><td>Julia Fairley in Sydney, NSW, AU on Houzz</td></tr></table>

    Can you please help me identify Houzz’s menu item ID? I am quite confused by the entire process involved with adding this logo to my site’s social menu.

    Thanks.

    }
    #menu-item-131 .icon-chain{

        opacity:0;
    }

    in your custom CSS box
