That didn’t work, so I tried clearing my cache (WP Rocket), then doing it again. That didn’t work, so I deactivated the caching plugin and tried again. That didn’t work. I also tried removing the key, then going to Theme Options and saving, then going back and re-entering the key and activating again. Still no go. So I just manually updated the theme via FTP.
SWEET! All is well now. Thanks Jason. Nothing compares to JumpStart. 🙂
Ah, I see. That makes perfect sense. I didn’t take the first post the wrong way, so no worries. 🙂 Thank you for the very thorough response!
I’ll just use some CSS to make the titles appear the same. Some pages have custom layouts and some have default layouts, and I just want them to all appear consistent throughout.

Chris over at MapPress took a look at the site and determined that the theme is loading the Google Maps API (even though I’m not using any WPJS maps in this case), which is stopping MapPress from loading the map editor libraries.
This leads to the question: Can I disable WPJS Google Maps stuff when it’s not needed?
FYI: One thing I failed to mention in the first post is that these are Portfolio posts, not standard blog posts.
Yes, as I mentioned in the OP, I checked the console on the post edit screen and it shows no errors. So obviously that’s not going to help me any.
When having a problem like this, I always clear my browser caches and try multiple browsers. They are all doing the same thing.
The only thing that fixed the issue was switching to Twenty Thirteen, edit/publish the posts, then switching back to WPJS child theme.
D’oh! Forgot I was using Chrome beta. The demos work fine in IE and FF. Sorry for the bother.
I just noticed on the demos page that most of the demos result in an “SSL protocol error”.

Oh wait, scratch that. The resized 1200×450 images work in the slider on the home page but not on the About page. Interesting. I’ll continue to troubleshoot.
Edit: Playing around some more, I removed a columns element that was under the slider, which contained a current page content element and some testimonial elements. Then I added a current page element under the slider and saved. The slider suddenly appeared. So then I removed the new current page element and reconstructed the columns as before. Slider still working. Very, very strange. Anyway, problem seems to be resolved.
Thanks for prompting me to change things around!
Nothing more unique than I’ve used before. I did save them at a larger size than is needed for the slider though, so they could be resized and account for parallax effects as well. The images are 1200×600.
The slider is at the top and the images do actually show in the slider after uploading and in the media library.
Interestingly, I resized the images to 1200×450, the size called for by the slider, and they work now. I assumed that larger would be fine since they would just be resized accordingly. Still seems odd to me though.
Thanks to Angela for the great responses and discussion we had via email. I do actually own some other of Jason’s themes via ThemeForest. In fact, that’s what got me interested in JumpStart when it first came out. Knowing very little about ThemeForest other than a place to go buy a one-off theme, my initial reaction about WPJS going to ThemeForest caused me to panic a bit. I’ve put a lot of time and effort to use WPJS for a lot of projects and I didn’t want to lose it.
Angela’s common sense and explanation regarding Jason’s current and future success in the industry makes all the sense in the world. In fact, when you stop and think about it, $65 for WPJS1 for an entire year is a massive bargain when you consider how many websites you could potentially build with it over the course of a year. In fact, I’d often wondered how Jason might be holding up with such a bargain basement pricing model.
So, the ThemeForest model makes sense. Jason can stop worrying about maintaining all of these backend licensing issues and focus on making WPJS even better. It’s hard to imagine it getting any better, but I’m pretty sure he will find a way. Especially if it becomes his bread and butter, which would be deservedly so.
I’ve tried a lot of different frameworks, themes, etc. and I latched on to WPJS for obvious reasons. It’s very well crafted and Jason is awesome at what he does. I’m more than happy to purchase a license each time I need it because the work is so brilliant and Theme Blvd should be a success.
Enough schmoozing for now, I’ll save more for later. 😉
P.S. to Jason: Congrats on the upcoming wedding!
How will the developer license work though? As I understand it, ThemeForest doesn’t really have a developer license in the same way you offered it with WPJSv1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any product on ThemeForest that offered licenses for use on more than 1 site. I think that’s where Darryl’s concern lies.
Sorry, I’m not trying to turn this sour — just looking for clarification. 🙂
Thank you Jason.
Rethinking all of this through, I think what I really am wanting to do is set a banner with transparent header as default for everything, with the page/post/whatever title centered in the banner. Almost like maybe I want to make a template, then apply it as a global template for everything. Am I making sense? If so, is there a way? I’m not finding anything in the forum or documentation, but maybe I’m not using the right search terms.
Thanks Jason! That works wonderfully except for one small detail: the transparent header over content. 🙂
Oh man, I’d love to be a member of that club. 🙂
