Just a quick comment to say this is an INCREDIBLE theme with the best support I’ve ever received. The creator LiveMesh has included an indepth tutorial and whilst the theme is designed to be super easy to setup/manage, LiveMesh himself is fantastic with email support – he really cares his theme is being used to it’s full advantage.

Extremely happy I got this theme and recommend it to anyone else looking for an App website.

LiveMesh

Thanks for those kind words Chris. Appreciate your help.

Hello, Great theme! I am just having problems to get the hoem page revolution slider to appear as on your demo website http://portfoliotheme.org/appdev/#

I have installed the revolution slider; however, the previous slider on http://portfoliotheme.org/appdev/home-2/ is also appearing below the revolution slider.

Any ideas how to turn this off so I have the revolution slider alone appearing on my home page as on your demo page: http://portfoliotheme.org/appdev/ ?

Any help would be greatly appreciate.

Many thanks.

Hi,

You can try couple of things. You can set “Home” as the homepage in the “Settings > Reading” on the WordPress dashboard. If that doesn’t solve the problem then you can navigate to the theme options and try to disable the page section called “Intro” in the “Single Page Settings”.

For assistance on complete theme setup, please see Appdev videos on our Youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgI4wSJ0TDigLHzyVORWo8g

Thanks.

I’ve seen 2 updates come out since purchasing, but have been nervous to update my site.

How do i update the theme without wiping out all of the customization work that I’ve done on individual pages and style sheets?

Also, I’ve been having trouble with google in-page analytics. Anything special about the theme that would be causing trouble?

LiveMesh

The way I update is to replace all files. No matter what method you use (there are plugins too to update easily after creating a backup), you will need to backup your changes and redo them on the new installation.

Use tools like DiffMerge or WinMerge to compare the old and new files and redo the changes. You will spend probably an hour doing this but not more, specially if you have made changes only to a few select files. The settings data will stay and hence Custom CSS entered into theme options should be fine. It’s always a good idea to have a backup though. Hope this helps.

Hey LiveMesh again as always thanks for your help… Few questions ive more so know the ins and outs of Appdev by now. just a few things…

- 1. Just under the features section that section with the iphone... is there a poosible way to change whats inside of it? Or better yet, is there a way i can change it into an ipad that plays video or just a video that can be player in the section to correlate with the wording of the section. 
- 2. For the buttons get this app, or whatever i change it to. Is there a possibility that i can make the link into a form that pops up right there with the site w/o it leaving the page. Like a pop up but no so much.
- 3. Also if i wanted payements what plug ins would you reccomend or what route would you advise me to go?
- 4. In the testimonial section. i figured out how to add and reduce the amount of testimonials but i am really looking to full taking out the testimonials but leaving the bg image. i have succeded but the image has drastically smallen to something that not visually appealing. How would i be able to keep the size when i remove the blockquote ?

Thanks in advance…

LiveMesh

Hi – See below for my response your queries -

1) Yes, you can replace the features iPhone section with a video. It would be as simple as pasting video link inside the column shortcode. I am not sure about iPad though – whether it can fit in that smaller space and how effective it would be.

2) It should be possible to open a modal contact form but currently the theme does not support this feature. You may want to have a look at these plugins and see if they meet your need -

http://wordpress.org/plugins/usernoise/ http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-modal/

3) For payments, I have experience only with WooCommerce and I would ask you to have a look at this free plugin and see if it meets your needs. Woocommerce provides a few payment options like paypal, bank transfer, cheque payment. These payment options can be configured through WP admin dashboard.

4) For retaining the size, you would apply padding on that section. Pls insert the following CSS into Custom CSS tab in the Theme Options panel or the <theme directory>/custom/custom.css file

#client-testimonials1 { padding: 200px 0; } 

You can vary the padding depending on your height needs. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Hi Livemesh – awesome theme! Any advice on how to hook up the pricing table to enable it to accept payments with PayPal and other merchant accounts? Thanks in advance!

LiveMesh

Hi – One solution is to load the free woocommerce plugin and have these pricing plans as products to add to cart. Once in the cart, the users can then checkout and woocommerce provides the required payment options including paypal. These payment options can be configured through WP admin dashboard.

If the pricing is subscription based and involves recurring payments, you may want to take a look at this woocommerce plugin (not free) -

Hello, my site is launched and ready to go.

I just have one small issue to iron out. It is in regards to the portfolio items in my page section. When i hover over them, there are two things that occur. The headline shows up and so does the zoom image. A lot of people are only clicking on the zoom button that generates an iframe.

How can i delete that as an option?

Thanks in advance.

LiveMesh

Hi- Congratulations on completion and launch of your site. To disable lightbox link, can you pls insert the following CSS into Custom CSS tab in the Theme Options panel or the <theme directory>/custom/custom.css file -

.image-info a.lightbox-link { display: none; }

I believe this is my last question. when i share my page on facebook all i get is latin text as a description. WHere can i control this…i thought it was on the header.php but dont see where the tags are.

LiveMesh

Not sure myself – perhaps it is the excerpt that you enter for the post. May be you have some excerpt for the post specified derived from sample data which is being shown when you share a post.

If you still have trouble – pls email me the site URL and a temporary login to the WordPress dashboard and I can take a look. Thanks!

Do you have a faq module integrated or is there a faq module plugin which will work within your theme?

Thanks

LiveMesh

Hi – Thanks so much for your interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We do have a FAQ template in the pricing section – http://portfoliotheme.org/appdev/#pricing

I like it the most compared to any other FAQ plugin that I used. It simple and gets the job done in my opinion. Of course, I found that plugins like this one works with the theme -

Let me know if you have any other questions,

LiveMesh

Hi, I find your Theme very very nice and I’m considering to buy it… But, just a question, is Woocommerce integrated? in case, is possible and easy to integrate it? Thanks

LiveMesh

Hi – thanks for your interest and glad you like the theme.

I have tested this theme with woocommerce and things seem to work fine. Depending on your need, you may have some styling to take care of.

Let me know if you have further queries and will be happy to answer them.

Hello I’m trying to put the Team Members on my website but the shortcode of the Team Member doesn’t appear, nor the Quotes. I have breaked my head trying to solve this but I can’t… can you help me?

Congratulations for the theme, is the best I’ve ever worked with.

LiveMesh

Hi,

Sorry for all the trouble with the Team section. Please send me an email, and I will send you the code to create this page section. Thanks for your purchase.

LiveMesh

You can send an email from my themeforest profile page (see bottom right box in my profile page)

Hi! Very nice theme! Really thinking to buy it. Just a question: Videos can be embedded in the slider? Thanks for the reply.

LiveMesh

yes. We have included the Revolution Slider plugin which supports embedding Youtube and Vimeo videos. Thanks for your interest.

Really nice theme! Could you indicate how to change the arrow (under the menu) color?

LiveMesh

Glad you like the theme. To change the color of the menu highlight, pls insert the following CSS into Custom CSS tab in the Theme Options panel or the <theme directory>/custom/custom.css file (modify color appropriately) -

#primary-menu .hover-bg { border-color: #DC4637; }

Great theme!

Quick question – is it just me or is the Text/Html widget getting stripped of all its HTML tags when placed in the footer? Or am I doing something wrong?

LiveMesh

BTW, you can see that on our demo site, we do use HTML in the text widget for display About Us information. Thanks!

Default-user

i just did a separate test install with the theme and it worked fine as you said… i must have something clashing – k thanks for the heads up and fast response!

Default-user

i just checked the code was weird… all my href tags had a space between < and the a ??? works now! :)

Could you let me know if we can use iPad sliders?

LiveMesh

At present the theme does not have iPad slider included with it. If you have some knowledge of CSS and have access to iPad mockup, you can create one fairly easily using our [responsive_slider] shortcode by following the example of iPhone slider. Thanks for your interest!

one feature i would like to see would be to have a small footer menu – bottom right

but overall spent most of the weekend using this theme – going to be rating it 5 stars!

not sure if its possible but it would be cool if we could have all the javascript in the footer… and also be able to disable any scripts from loading that we dont need or use – just to help speed things up a little :)

Default-user

never mind about the email icon just found it in the social sprites! :)

LiveMesh

Glad you like the theme and thanks in advance for the rating :-)

Most of the JS loads in the footer except the core JQuery. I try not to load JS when not required for a page. You may see some that you don’t use on the page (like prettyPhoto.js) but is required if the user decides to use a particular shortcode on that page. So, it all depends on content inserted by the user and we just have to have related scripts in place. In fact, this is one of the points about which the ThemeForest reviewers are particular about and they often reject themes because they don’t meet this requirement. I would suggest you use a combine+minify plugin to reduce impact on performance.

Regarding the footer menu, you can insert a custom HTML with the links you desire for the footer in the Footer Insert text field under footer tab of the theme options panel. At present the theme does not provide support for WP menu to be placed inside the footer. Thanks

thanks for the pointers!

hi – which phone mockup did you use to create the view of the back to back phones shown here:

http://screencast.com/t/5pRL9Qps

thanks in advance

Default-user

found it!

LiveMesh

Glad you found out.

just doing some cross browser testing – and the parallex scrolling isnt working in IE. While its not a surprise is there a workaround so we can disable the parallex in IE only? Not sure who it works if its jquery or something else but any pointers you can provide and i will gladly take a look myself.

This screenshot will show you what i am talking about – it was taken on your demo site. http://screencast.com/t/CA4J3ikLaaT

Thanks

LiveMesh

Thanks for letting us know about this. You will not see the change in the source since JQuery/JS removes this dynamically once the document is loaded. If you inspect in the Firebug or Chrome developer tools, you will be able to see that this attribute has been removed. BTW, parallax seems to be working fine on the demo site, at least on IE8.

Default-user

i was using latest version – that screenshot was from ie10 – dont you just love IE! LOL

LiveMesh

Ok will check it out. Thanks again.

quick question on the sitemap page template i want the pages to be the first column and the posts to be the second where exactly do i go to swap these around – i looked in the template-sitemap.php but it wasn’t obvious…

thanks again in advance for your awesome support!

Default-user

found it framework/partials/sitemap.php :)

LiveMesh

redflamemedia – I have included a child theme for Appdev in the latest update. Thought of letting you know that if you move some of these changes to the child theme, you will not have to worry about overwriting your changes or the problem of reapplying these changes to the source files when the theme is updated.

Hi I’m getting this error when trying to live-preview the theme. Activating the theme would bring the whole site down with the same error.

I’m using WP 3.6.1 on WPEngine. I tried to install the theme using the dashboard, and also tried FTP the appdev folder to wp_content/themes. Am I missing anything?

Fatal error: Call to undefined function ot_register_meta_box() in /nas/wp/www/staging/[sitename]/wp-content/themes/appdev/framework/presentation/metabox-manager.php on line 64

Thanks man. I’ve sent you the wp login. I’ll contact WPEngine too and keep you posted.

LiveMesh

Fixed this issue. Something weird here – it has been this way for quite a long time and did not encounter this in other installations. Anyway, it does seem to be safer to patch this with the fix made for your setup. Here is the change in case you reload the theme fresh -

Line numbers 21 and 23 of file framework/framework.php changed from

        add_action('after_setup_theme', array(&$this, 'define_constants'), 8);

        add_action('after_setup_theme', array(&$this, 'init_option_tree'), 9);

to

        $this->define_constants();

        $this->init_option_tree();

Let me know if you face any other issue. Will be happy to help you out in the forum. Thanks.

The above change will be part of the next theme update. If others report it, I may submit it this week, else will wait.
