Interested in buying, like the theme very much! A question, is it possible to stretch the homepage background image? Thanks

sevenspark

Hi mrfreeze,

Thanks for your interest! Not sure exactly what you mean. If you want to use a background image (as opposed to the included patterns) and stretch it to the extents of the window, you could customize it with something like Backstretch, but this is not something that UberMenu does out of the box.

Hope that helps! :)

Sorry, that should have said “Agility” not “UberMenu” :)

How do you remove the default text in the “lower area”, if you don’t want to use any widgets there? The theme assumes you will be using that area, but I’d like to to just leave it blank, but when I remove the widgets, it puts that silly default copy in the bordered box….

Please help.

sevenspark

Hi Sean,

In the Agility Control Panel, under “Home Page”, you can disable the lower area widgets by setting the switch to “off”.

I’d definitely recommend watching the video tutorials, especially the home page tutorials.

If you have any further questions, please be sure to post them in the Support Forum if you can’t find the answers in the documentation.

Hope that helps,

Chris

I would really love for the theme to look good on my Retina display…the sliders and my logos are pixelated. PLEASE add high res support to this theme!

sevenspark

Thanks for the feedback, bdennis, I’ll be looking into it :) If you have any further feature requests, feedback, or questions, please be sure to post them in the Support Forum – thanks!

Hi abdul,

Your slider looks good to me, but if you’re still having trouble please post in the Support Forum and we’ll take a look.

Hi Chris!

I’ve been looking around the past week for responsive themes and i’ve 99% decided to purchase Agility! Thanks for the wonderful theme and for the (as far as I can see) stellar support!

Just one quick question before I purchase: I notice that the featured images at the grid blog and home-blog layout are of different sizes depending on the uploaded image size.

I’m wondering if it’s possible to have the images somehow cropped to make all them the same size, and that only when I go into the single post layout, will the picture then show in its full size?

Some of my images are huge portraits (500×1500px for example) and I’d reckon it will look out of place side-by-side with the other normal landscape images.

I’d prefer if they were all the same size, looks more pleasing to the eye (mine, at least).

Thanks again!

sevenspark

Hi Fadhilahwahid,

Thanks for your interest in Agility! :)

Yes, there is a simple option you can switch on in the Agility Control Panel to say whether you want the images to be cropped or not.

You can also set the cropped image’s aspect ratio in the control panel.

Hope that helps! :)

Looking forward to spend my night setting up the website instead of completing my papers :)

Thanks for the prompt reply Chris.

You’re welcome! Thanks for your purchase, and enjoy Agility! :)

hi there, listen i’d like your template … and plz can u let me know how is the easy way to translate it in one or more language? Is enough to install some plug in like Transposh, i’m using it in another template.

thanks a lot! —max

sevenspark

Hi Max,

Agility is translation-ready, which means the strings in the theme are localized, and I’ve included a PO file, which contains the translatable-strings. You can then translate those strings through a variety of means. I’m not familiar with Transposh, but if it uses WordPress standards to translate I would expect it to work – it works with the standard WPML plugin, for example.

Here’s a tutorial on how to translate WordPress (step 1 is already included with the theme).

Hope that helps :)

Hello Chris

I have just purchased your Ubermenu and have a question about the menu item styling in Agility. I really like the styling with the small coloured bars on hover.

Is it possible to keep the Agility styling with the megamenu in Ubermenu?

Thanks
sevenspark

Hi Kathy,

Out of the box, UberMenu isn’t going to take on any theme menu styles. But you could use a preset like “Vanilla Bar” and add the top borders back in with a little custom CSS. :)

All the best,

Chris

This isn’t a question, but just a bit of feedback on the theme. I have bought this and have found it great. It is hard to know sometimes, which themes are well-built, but I have found this to be amply documented and it is obvious a lot of care and time has been taken on this and the theme itself.

The support forums are also very responsive and the theme is elegant and clean.

I especially like the bricklayer option, where I can build my own page layouts by dragging and dropping.

Thanks very much

sevenspark

Thanks very much for your feedback, rmets! I’m really glad to hear you are enjoying the theme! :)

All the best,

Chris

I’ve recently purchased your Ubermenu addon and I’m considering to invest in this theme also to rebuild my site( http://www.otrum.com/ ). I have a feeling we’ll see some nice synergies in the future. ;) There are some features I would miss from my current theme, and I’d like your advice on how to solve them before I cash out.

1. Can I use the boxed layout and have a small space between the header area and the page content area? 2. Can I use MyFonts webfonts with this theme? (@font-face) 3. How can I get custom sidebars with this theme? 4. How can I get full-page image backgrounds with this theme? 5. Can I have different backgrounds on different pages? 6. The Twitter addon doesn’t seem to be working in the demo? 7. What kind of typographic controls are there?

sevenspark

Hi kaysperre,

Thanks for your interest in Agility :)

1. You would need to customize the layout to accomplish that – it won’t be possible with the out-of-the-box Boxed Layout

2. Yes, you would add the sources in the head and then add your font face declarations via custom CSS. There is no specific built-in support for this, but you can add custom fonts just like you would to any website.

3. Agility has a built-in custom sidebar system which you can read more about here: http://agility.sevenspark.com/help/#custom_sidebars

4. Full page image backgrounds are not built in, but perhaps something like this plugin would fill your needs: http://codecanyon.net/item/custom-backgrounds-for-wordpress/121983 (note: not tested with Agility)

5. Not a built-in feature, but the plugin above does this

6. Due to the Twitter API 1.1 update, the old Twitter feed is currently not working. I have posted the new theme files for the new solution in the support forum; the working code is ready in the update, but I am hoping to coincide this update with WordPress 3.6 (which is supposedly imminent) so that customers don’t need to update twice in a short time period. I chose not to update the demo with the new code yet so that the demo represented only exactly what comes in the current download package.

7. Settings in the Control Panel to control typography? None. These are better left to custom CSS. Though Agility provides classes for a variety of typographically styled elements like alert boxes, blockquotes, taglines, buttons, etc, as well as matching shortcodes with a shortcode generator.

Hope that helps!

Chris

Thanks, Chris! Catch you later in the Support forums (lol) Appreciate the responsen.

You’re welcome! See you there ;)

Hi there, One of my clients is interested in using this theme to develop their new website.. I wanted to check in cuz this looks like an older theme (a year old) and I’m hoping I can get easy support w/ this..

1 Question is: Does this theme use Google Fonts for headers / font customization? Can I use font-face?

thanks!

sitka

sevenspark

Hi sitka,

Yes, support is still active over in the Support Forum, and the last update was a little over a month ago :) There are step-by-step narrated video tutorials and a detailed support guide included. The only thing I’d note about it being a year old is that this is not one of those newer behemoth themes that does “everything”, so if you’re looking for that type of theme there may be better options out there.

The theme uses Google Fonts, and while you can’t adjust this through the Control Panel, you could certainly add them in and adjust them with custom CSS.

Hope that helps!

Chris

Hi

I created a Portfolio, but the thumbnails are showing as full size. They are stretched to the page size, ie larger than the actual image dimensions.

I have my Wordpress media thumbnail settings at 100px, but I’m sure I must be missing something very obvious, please can you help?

sevenspark

Hi Pete,

We’ll need to see the site in order to troubleshoot it. Please post your question in the Support Forum with a link to your site and we’ll take a look for you :)

Best,

I would like to have the DROP CONTAINER on the main page OPEN (when one lands on the main page) and not to have to click on it to open it. How can I do that. Couldn’t find it in the forum. Thank you

sevenspark

Hi gmorpheus,

When you can’t find an answer in the existing forum topics, then you can create a new topic by clicking the blue “New Support Topic” button on the right side of the Agility Forum. It’s currently even more critical than usual that you post there, as I am on vacation at the moment – so please post your question in the forum, and my support team will assist you – thanks!

Best,

Chris

Hi,

thank you, we have built a nice site with your theme and are completely happy with it. But how can I update to the new version 2.1 without destroying any customizations?

Thanks in advance! Maud

sevenspark

Hi Maud,

Glad your’e enjoying Agility!

As long as you followed the Theme customization best practices (never edited the core theme files), you shouldn’t have any problems :)

If you have any further questions, please be sure to post them in the Support Forum – thanks!

Best,

Chris

A free theme can do better than this. Wasted $45. No refund….!

sevenspark

Hi yoursking,

Sorry to hear that you aren’t enjoying the theme. The vast majority of Agility customers love it, but I understand that a single product can’t please everyone, and I have no authority over refunds. Had you asked any questions or posted any feedback about Agility in the Support Forum, we’d have been happy to help. Regardless, I see no need to write insulting comments here.

Happy New Year,

Chris

Hi! I have lots of questions about this theme, but the first two are most important:

1. Is this theme compatible with WP 3.8?

2. Does it work seamlessly with your UberMenu plugin (which I have just purchased yet cannot make it work properly without more tech expertise than I have)?

sevenspark

Hi Chris,

Yes, Agility is compatible with WordPress 3.8, and it works with UberMenu.

If you’re having trouble setting UberMenu up with your current theme, feel free to post over in the Support Forum and we’ll help you get it sorted out :)

Best,

Chris
