I got this theme as a part of the Corporate bundle on TF. The version I got was v1.3. I would like to know what is the highest WP version that will work with this theme. I am currently on WP 3.4.2. I know I cannot get the updates to the theme so I want to know what is the highest WP version that is supported without any known issues. Will v1.3 work on WP3.6?

Thanks and Regards

ThemeFocus

Our theme v5.0 works on WP3.6.If you need works for WP3.6 you can update our new version.We didn’t tested v1.3 on WP3.6.Thanks.

Hi!

I have already purchased this theme and it is absolutely fabulous!

I am thinking of purchasing it again for a completely different kind of site, but I am wondering how compatible it is with BuddyPress?

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

ThemeFocus

Hi, now we have no compatible it is with BuddyPress.Thanks.

Default-user

I am sorry, but I don’t completely understand your reply.

Is it that you do not “know” if it is compatible, or is it “not” compatible? After reading your response I have interpreted it both ways.

Thanks for the speedy response!

ThemeFocus

It’s means our theme didn’t tested it compatible BuddyPress so maybe not compatible it.Thanks.

Default-user

Thanks! If any other users out there have used it with BuddyPress I would appreciate any feedback :)

Hello;

In the previous update, the search form for product of woocommerce has been added.

The default search is for woocommerce.

How can I make the search for post/content only and not for woocommerce?

I don’t want to remove woocommerce plugin.

Kindly advise.

Regards;

ThemeFocus
Hi, please open you choosed header style id with “header-style-ID.php” delete the code
<input class="sf-type" name="post_type" type="hidden" value="product" />
Will works. Maybe we will add a options in Alterna Options -> WooCommerce so that next update you don’t need change anything.

Thanks.

1.Have just turned auto update on for new version from 4.2.1 to 5.0 – How long does it take to update and how do you know when its finished updating?

2.I noticed it now says Penguin Framework 3.0 now… (does that mean update is complete) or where can I find where it says new version 5.0 so I know for sure?

3. Also do I still have to update plugins (as per your instructions) even if there has been NO UPDATES of these 3x plugins since version 4.2.1 ? only bought theme 1 week ago.

Thanks

ThemeFocus

Hi, 1. our update depends on buyer suggest or other good idea for the theme.And when our theme includeds plugin have new version then we will update it.

2. Penguin frameworks is our Alterna Options, if you used before version Alterna Options will find our UI had changed.

3. You can update plugin when we update theme with new version plugins.Here is link tell u how to update plugin. http://support.activetofocus.com/alterna/discussion/65/about-setting-theme-auto-update-recommend-method

Thanks.

Default-user

ahh just noticed in ADMIN the Theme now says 5.0.

SO do I have to now manually update the 4x plugins: (since version 4.2.1) 1. LayerSlider WP 2. Revolution Slider 3. WP Bakery Visual Composer 4. WP Retina

ThemeFocus

Not yet about update the 4 plugin, it’s need you check your version is old then update it.

As V4.2.1 means you just need update LayerSlider plugin. You can view these plugins version throught Admin -> Plugins.

You can view our update information about plugin on Alterna Options -> Update or http://support.activetofocus.com/update/?theme=alterna

Thanks.

Default-user

Thanks

Default-user

If I am happy with website functionality and I don’t want to update all the time…say some years later – is it ok or will the site eventually stop working?

ThemeFocus

Yes, no problem, you can choose don’t enable auto update and update plugin then your site also works except WP update new version bring some question or plugin have import error.Normal WP update have no any question.

Thanks.

Default-user

IM not sure if I understand you completely…as an example if I don’t update WP… and I don’t update your Theme and I don’t update plug ins will everything be OK over a long time just keeping it the same?

ThemeFocus

Mean if WP have new version then you update it. When appear problem then update our theme or plugins.Normal don’t need update.Thanks.

Hello, I am so glad that i bought this theme – it is soooo goood. But I’m looking for solution for my problem. I am using Alterna 4.2.1 (when I am switching to 5.0.2 something wrong with Top menu and Items is happening) My client uses various images with different sizes and thats what he gets: http://www.ivvi.pl I;ve tried to change thumbnails size @ woocommerce/settings(tools)/Catalogue and image options but when i am trying to save that it is going back to deafult setting. Even Hard Crop radio bitton isnt working.

I found this code for functions.php:

if (class_exists( ‘woocommerce’ )) { $catalog = array( ‘width’ => ‘372’, // px ‘height’ => ‘999’, // px ‘crop’ => 0 // true ); $single = array( ‘width’ => ‘372’, // px ‘height’ => ‘999’, // px ‘crop’ => 0 // true ); $thumbnail = array( ‘width’ => ‘372’, // px ‘height’ => ‘999’, // px ‘crop’ => 0 // false ); // Image sizes update_option( ‘shop_catalog_image_size’, $catalog ); // Product category thumbs update_option( ‘shop_single_image_size’, $single ); // Single product image update_option( ‘shop_thumbnail_image_size’, $thumbnail ); // Image gallery thumbs }

that you provided to other user but it didnt worked for me (yes – i have used Regen. Thumbnails plugin)

All I want is that all images on the main page to have same height. What can i do?

ThemeFocus

Hi, now our theme new version is 5.0.1.We didn’t update woocomerce thumbs size and top menu etc as you said. So don’t know you there have have problem, I view your site looks all ok like top menu, about your product size because of you used image size is different so show is different.

Thanks.

sinbad78

Ok – but there is a solution to upload differen sizes and receive and display images with the same dimmentions?

ThemeFocus

Hi, you can setting your product with fixed size (now height used 999 you can use other fixed size) like these code as before you found.

if (class_exists( ‘woocommerce’ )) { $catalog = array( ‘width’ => ‘372’, // px ‘height’ => ‘999’, // px ‘crop’ => 0 // true ); $single = array( ‘width’ => ‘372’, // px ‘height’ => ‘999’, // px ‘crop’ => 0 // true ); $thumbnail = array( ‘width’ => ‘372’, // px ‘height’ => ‘999’, // px ‘crop’ => 0 // false ); // Image sizes update_option( ‘shop_catalog_image_size’, $catalog ); // Product category thumbs update_option( ‘shop_single_image_size’, $single ); // Single product image update_option( ‘shop_thumbnail_image_size’, $thumbnail ); // Image gallery thumbs }

You also need keep your image big than the fixed size like 372px * 500px.If your image width or height less the size will also appear the image size is small as can’t use wp crop size.

Don’t forget if you changed size then must upload again your images so that crop with new size.

Thanks.

hey, is there an option in this theme so that featured images in standard blog posts are displayed along side them in the Blog Mid-Width display?

On your demo: http://themes.activetofocus.com/alterna/demo/blog-mid-width-style/page/2/ The very last entry looks very boring. I would want all the featured images to display as thumbnails (without having to set the posts to “image” type – because then it forces a large featured image above the listing on single view which I don’t want).

Thanks

ThemeFocus

We provided featured item widgets, you can view it through blog pages.It’s support 3 style includes thumbs.If not you wanted, please send us custom services do it after purchase it. Thanks.

Hi, I see the widgets, but that’s not what I’ talking about. I just mean the normal blog page and the mid-style display. I want the featured images of Standard Blog Posts to have images beside them too (just like the Image posts). How much would it cost for that custom work?

Also, another two quick questions: For the Blog List Widget, it seems to show related posts always in the order that they were published. Is it possible to randomise the related blog posts that are displayed in the Blog List widget?

And finally, is it possible to use a “tag” as the related slug instead of only “category”?

If the other two things I asked about require custom work as well, please let me know the cost. I am prepared to pay.

Hi, if our provided not you wanted then you can send us custom services for it.Thanks.

hello, we like your theme. we have a question regarding the theme’s SEO structure. when we use a tool to analyze the keyword content of Alterna, it only provides 1 keyword values. It does not provide 2 keyword, 3 keyword, or 4 keyword values. Is there a problem with the theme’s SEO. Please let us know since SEO capability is important to us. Thanks

ThemeFocus

Hi, our theme integrating WP SEO by Yoast plugin from v3.0. If you update our them with new version I think have no any problem with it. Now I didn’t found you purchase our item, if you purchase by bundle item then you will can’t update and get our support.

Thanks.

Default-user

Thank you for your response. We have not yet purchased your theme as we are doing our initial review of several themes. Part of our assessment is to run some SEO tests on the versions being demo’d on Themeforest so that we use the most current theme version. One thing is we look to make sure they are capturing long-tail keywords. Thanks again for your reply—we really do like the theme capabilities.
