Its in the globalTemplate in head tag

this

		{{if settings.ipbseo_ga_enabled}}

		{{endif}}

It looks like this fix has removed Google Analytics capabilities entirely. We do still want to use it...we just don't want the analytics code itself showing all ugly at the top of the site. Is there a way to suppress it/ make it invisible or at least the same color as the background so it's not as distracting?

Sorry, I didn't give you any "fix" or solutions 

i only pointed out that this is the seo setting been used in the template 

 

but i dont understand! what this has anything to do with background colors? you don't need to touch anything of that, especially those elements in the head tag which has nothing to do with front end view of your site.

 if you have issues with the theme please explain in details so i can help  :)

I figured the problem out.

In case anyone else has this issue:  the instructions that Google gives are different than the instructions IPS gives.  Google says to use just a certain snippet.  IPS says use a whole paragraph of script.  If you do use that whole paragraph/block (apologies for my non-technical terminology/ignorance), then everything looks fine.  If you follow Google's instructions, you wind up with the problem demonstrated in the screenshot.

These codes should be in the head tag, in the screenshot i can see that you have pasted the code into body tag which is wrong.

No. The Google Analytics code is not pasted anywhere except the box IPS provides in the settings area for that purpose. That is an unaltered version of your skin. No edits were made to your skin whatsoever. :)

(The same problem happens on the default skin IPS provides, by the way.)

But as I said, I figured it out. However, I would like anyone else who followed Google's directions (I am sure we are not the only ones in the history of using IPS to do that) for what to use to find an answer which is why I am replying. I always appreciate being able to search these forums and finding an answer because someone posted the solution to an issue they were having. The solution is to ignore Google's instructions to use a specific snippet and use the whole paragraph they provide instead, as obviously IPS expects the whole paragraph. It took various trial and error on my part to figure that out.

So to reiterate: I found the solution but want others to be able to also if they are searching these forums. No further action is required on your part.

Hello,

The latest theme version works only with latest IPS version, so, you will need to upgrade your website to latest 4.3 to use the new update of the theme.

otherwise, if you dont want to update your website yet, then you would need to downgrade the theme version to earlier versions because there are new templates added by IPS to 4.3 version which does not exist in 4.2.

 

To downgrade the theme version please go to this theme in marketplace and click on see channellog

and download the 4.1.5 version which should work with ips 4.2 🙂

Hi, Taman

How can I change these colors?

Thanks...

Hi,

The colors arent like this by default. If you have installed a new editor skin then disable the editor customizations. It is in topic view tab

My header image has disappeared. The slider works for guests but once logged in no header image appears any longer. This occurred after upgrading to 4.2.0.

And I do not like some of these latest changes. The on scroll opacity in the nav bar was a selling point for me when I purchased this template. Removing them takes away the reasons I purchased this template.

Edited: Just reverted back to 4.1.9. Please consider what I have writ.

Hello @TAMAN,

We have upgraded the theme, however there seem to be some issues and errors. We have your Swiper Slider addon installed. We have disabled "Swiper Slider" in the theme settings. This is what's happening:

image.thumb.png.02eb8486753d573b4c9a82c914b34f8e.png

We can "enable" swiper slider in the theme, but then they're stacked one on top of the other. Help appreciated.

 

Edit 1: It also seems this has messed up another theme; Dreadnaught. No idea how or why.

Edit 2: Reinstalled Dreadnaught, seemed to fix it.

Edit 3: Had to comment out the Slider template to fix this.

Hello,

I can tell by the screenshot that you didnt update the theme properly 

During theme updating, sometimes a window pops up to select templates between your edited versions and The new update versions. the issues you mentioned is because you have selected your edited versions and not the updated version

 

Do another update and this time make sure to select New version of templates when it asks. if you have already done that and it doesnt ask to select templates then you would need to manually update the templates, in this case send me a message i can explain with screenshots

Did you upload behemoth theme file as dreadnought theme update! 😄 updating another theme can not effect any other themes. unless you are doing some parent/child theming?

Nope, not at all. These were 100% new uploads, not a theme update.

Hi, I'm sorry if this has been addressed before, but I don't have the time to read through tis entire thread. 

I just upgraded to 4.3.3 a couple of days ago and bought your theme (very nice, thank you!). There are a couple of items I need some fixes for. Can I PM these to you or do they have to be described in this thread? I don't think they are major, I just can't seem to figure them out myself so I need to ask.

Are the transparent menu/ user nav bars (solid on scroll) permanently removed from this and future versions? If so is there anyway to petition them back? They were a selling point to me when I initially purchased the theme. Deleting them downgraded the template. Can we at least have the option like they were to disable if not wanted?

Hello,

Yes, It is permanently removed due to some reasons. (basically, The way this effects work it prevented me from improving the theme and updating)

 

If you don't want to update due to this effect in navbar then you don't have to, Your version of the theme still works because only two templates is modified in this theme, which means %98 this theme will work with any future ips versions 😉 and i can still provide support if you have any issues with the theme (No IPS versions support tho).

So, its totally okay if you don't want to update and keep using the current one until you have to update at some point 🙂
