Hi there,

There is a file called “appdev-child.zip” that comes with this theme. The installation video makes no mention of this. Do you have an article or video that explains the purpose of the child theme?

I’m sure you get asked this question a lot :)

Thanks!

LiveMesh

This article explains it all -

http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

The zip contains a template child theme which you can use to customize the theme without touching the parent theme’s code. It also has the required styles to set the font to Museo, in case you need it.

Thank you!

Hello,

Just some feedback from a new purchaser of your theme.

I think it would be very helpful if there was a detailed tutorial on how to recreate the home page you have on the demo page. I have watched the installation video and to be honest I find it hard to figure out what is going on at times. Actual voice narration with full and detailed explanations would be great. Also, showing what the site looks like after changes are made I think would be most helpful.

(I tried to import the WordPress data and the importation at first hung for a long time and then failed to import many of the files. I followed the instructions exactly from the video.)

It looks like a lot of shortcodes are being used for the home page but I have no idea which ones are being used which leaves me only with trial and error trying to figure out which ones do which.

Thanks for creating a nice looking theme! I just hope that I can use and install all the great features. I hope you don’t mind my feedback. :)

Allworth

Would it be possible to get a copy of the shortcodes used in the “Features” page section? Many thanks :)

LiveMesh

Most shortcodes are documented through shortcodes pages – they provide the code and help demonstrate the output of the shortcodes. A few like [segment] and custom post type related shortcodes are explained in the documentation. The shortcode pages are online and you also get these pages on your site when you import our sample data.

I am sorry you are having trouble with the video. I will try to add more annotations, in addition to what I already have, to the video to make it more useful. Meanwhile, if you send across the temp login to your site, I can have things setup for you.

I urge you to load the sample data to reduce time it takes to build your site. The features section code is included with the sample data as well. Again, let me know if you need help. Thanks!

Hi! In my revolution slide appears a numbers no a arrows. Why?

Pls email me a temp login to your site (see bottom right box on my profile page) and I can take a look. Thanks!

Hi,

I have a question around the wordpress theme AppDev. I want to buy the theme but first I would like to know if it can easily be customised to look like my design here:

http://gillianseeleydesigns.prevue.it/view/2lb8zu PW: bbb123

Thank you very much. Richard

LiveMesh

Thanks for your interest! I did look at your site and it is already looking great. Customizing Appdev to make it look like your site will require some effort depending on how comfortable with CSS and to what extent you want to replicate the function of the current site. The theme comes with 4 skins and most styles related to skinning is located in a file named default.css which you will need to modify to match the color on your site. Hope this helps.

Thinking of buying this theme but have a one questions prior to purchasing it:

Does the theme allows me to add/upload my own BG Image? or I only have an option to choose from the preset images?

LiveMesh

Thanks for your interest. Yes, the theme does allow you to upload your own background images through an image uploader field.

Hi there, I seem to be missing a couple of the widgets that your documentation mentions, I don’t have the Contact Form widget.

Where could I grab it?

Thanks!

LiveMesh

There is no separate contact form widget as such. For the contact form, pls drag and drop the Text widget and insert the shortcode as shown in the below page -

http://portfoliotheme.org/appdev/contact-form-shortcode/

You can try out Contact Form 7 plugin widget too and theme will style it appropriately.

Hi

When I see the web in a smarthphone, and I do click in menu element that has a subelement, I canĀ“t see the element item, automatically display the subelement.

You can see and example there: http://quirktools.com/screenfly/#u=http%3A//instagramersgasteiz.com/&w=320&h=568&a=37

Click en el Menu and Click in Instagramers. You can’t see the content of this! How i can resolve it? Thanks

LiveMesh

I see the issue. I guess we need to live with this because if I did enable load page on the click, there is no way for the user to navigate to the submenu item since every time you click on the parent menu item, you end up loading the page. Hope you get it.

In desktop world, we have two ways to navigate – hover and click and hence it is ok to just open the page when you click on the URL since hover will enable you to navigate still to the submenu item. In the mobile world, there is only touch(=click) action that we use to arrive at the submenu item and hence we need to disable navigation on touch of the parent menu item.

The way I have been handling this is by having the page linked to by the parent menu item listed also as submenu item so that users do not miss out on the same. When the hover gets enabled and submenu is shown, users often do not click on the item itself and hence you can lose some traffic on that page.

IkerAudicana

Ok, I understand, thanks for all and I trie to modify the structure! Thanks You!

LiveMesh

Glad that helped.

Hi Again! :)

My client would like the “GET THIS APP” found on the top menu bar to be permanent on the menu bar when you scroll throughout the page?

Please let me know if this is possible as it would be well appreciated. Thank you very much for your time!

-Joshua.

LiveMesh

Pls email me the URL of this page and I can help you out with this. That way I can get the precise measurements to accomodate this button in the sticky menu. Thanks.

Default-user

Whats your email?

LiveMesh

Pls see bottom right box in my profile page. You can email an author this way in ThemeForest.

Hi LiveMesh,

Am probably missing an option here somewhere but is there a way to have it always sure the default Custom WP Menu?

The menu that is being generated is out of order it appears to be alphabetical – i just want it to be the same as what i have my custom menu set to be.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.

FYI i have multiple pages using page sections – i hid the links to the sections using css.

Am thinking its due to The “Choose the Pages for Navigation Menu” putting the order alphabetical where actually they should be by page order.

If i dont select any pages from the “Choose the Pages for Navigation Menu” all am seeing is the home button and the current page in the menu – but i have all the pages selected in my menu and assign to main menu too.

Thanks

LiveMesh

If you have version 2.0 or later, you can optionally create a separate WP menu for each single page you create and set the same as the menu in the page edit window using this option -

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9j6FQo4cSQFV3REbUh0NmNSckE/edit?usp=drivesdk

I guess this meets your need.

Default-user

ah yep need to update was running v1.5 – thanks for fast response as always!

Hi LiveMesh,

Sorry one other question – how do you disable comments box from pages?

I dont really want to just hide them i want to literally disable the option.

thanks

Default-user

thanks – i updated my wordpress install – that did the trick!

Hi there,

I am facing an issue.

The width of the site isn’t wide enough on different computers. My client has tried on a variety of laptops and browsers, and the website seems to not show its full width – even if u zoom out – it’s as if the site has the sides cut off.

On my end the viewing experience is good. Not sure what it is. but he’s showed me over Skype his viewing experience and its similar to this:

http://tinypic.com/r/hv56he/5

Is there a simple solution? Thank you again for your time!

LiveMesh

I am experiencing the same issue as reported by your client. At certain resolutions, the captions has not enough space on the screen to appear on the left.

Since you are using revolution slider, can you consider creating two slides? One introducing the app with the captions – scan, order, pay and the next one inviting the users to watch the video? At present, a single slide has too much information to handle. Hope this helps.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply! I got rid of the video. Still the same thing.

This is very odd. Please let me know how to fix this as it is delaying the final product. Has it anything to do with settings in Revolution slider?

Have you encountered this before? Waiting to hear back. Thanks.

LiveMesh

You just need to pull those captions towards the center in the revolution slider edit slide window and you should do fine. The captions are far too much to the left to be visible in lower resolutions.

I just purchased this theme and got it up and running quickly!! I did find that I’m getting this error

http://www.example.com/wp-content/plugins/revslider/rs-plugin/css/static-captions.css?rev=4.1&ver=3.8

Could you let me know how to correct this?

Thanks, Matt

LiveMesh

Thanks for your purchase! Can you pls email me (see bottom box on my profile page) the URL and preferably a temp login to the site so that I can take a look?

How can I add a http link to the Image Shortcode?

LiveMesh

It can be done by having a link attribute/argument passed to the shortcode or by just wrapping the shortcode with an anchor tag -

[image align="right" link="#" style="" alt="Lorem ipsum" title="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet" size="medium" src="http://portfoliotheme.org/appdev/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mapigon-big1.png"]

I cant import the sample data, what should I do to fix this?

LiveMesh

Thanks for choosing Appdev. You can pretty much ignore the errors if you do not want to use WooCommerce. If you do need to, just repeat the import after activating the free WooCommerce plugin. Hope this helps.

Default-user

Ok, Woocommerce errors. Thats clear!

Question regarding the App theme. Am I able to place the navigation section to the right and will a gallery plugin work with this theme?

LiveMesh

Gallery plugin should work with the theme. Regarding changing the location of the navigation section (I assume you are talking about the top menu), it’s not possible unless you edit the header.php and customize the theme quite a bit through additional CSS. Navigation menus are hard to style due to presence of hierarchy (multiple levels).

Hi,

Great looking design!

Are the various images included with the theme? Backgrounds, phones, tablets, hand holding phone?

Thanks!

LiveMesh

Thanks for your interest.

Some of the images like iPhone in the smartphone slider and icons are available with the theme. Other images are not bundled with the theme. But when you import the sample data, you have a choice of importing the images as placeholders which you can later replace with your own images.

Hello,

Great theme. Unfortunately there is one problem I am having. I have set up the contact form (in footer and on contact page). But when I fill the form and test, I cannot get email sent to the email I have set up. Please can you help me with this? I have sent login info to you via your page on Themeforest. Please help as soon as you can thanks

LiveMesh

I logged into your site and checked the contact form. Contact form in the footer seems to work fine there. I received the email which I have forwarded to you. Please check with another email address and also check the spam folders once. Thanks!

Yes you are right.. I tried another email and it worked.. But this is the clients email.. Why isn’t it working?? Maybe we need to change SMTP setting? I checked and didn’t see either? What can be the problem?

LiveMesh

Since the email is reaching others, the problem can only be on the receiver’s side (Client’s side). I don’t think there is any need to change the SMTP settings. You can ask your client to check with the admins on his side.

When importing the demo xml I get this error. Everything else seems to have imported except what is seen below.

Import WordPress<br /> Failed to import shop_order_status cancelled Failed to import shop_order_status completed Failed to import product_type external Failed to import shop_order_status failed Failed to import product_type grouped Failed to import shop_order_status on-hold Failed to import shop_order_status pending Failed to import shop_order_status processing Failed to import shop_order_status refunded Failed to import product_type simple Failed to import product_type variable Failed to import product_cat Clothing Failed to import product_cat Hoodies Failed to import product_cat Music Failed to import product_cat Posters Failed to import product_cat Singles Failed to import product_cat T-shirts Failed to import product_cat Albums


Please advise.
LiveMesh

Thanks for your purchase. The error can be ignored if you do not need the woocommerce function. If you need the same, pls ignore it for now and when you load the woocommerce plugin you will be able to import the data from the dummy_data.xml file in the plugins/woocommerce folder.

Default-user

I appreciate the reply! Thanks.

Ive tried a number of times to import your data. Some of it imported but there are no new pages, etc showing? Please provide any reason why there are not pages to use for demo?

LiveMesh

Thanks for your purchase! Imports failing is often due to limited memory allocated to the site (by hosting company or via a setting in wp-config.php). You can have a look at this video for help on replicating the demo site entirely -

http://portfoliotheme.org/support/faqs/appdev-theme-how-to-setup-theme-and-revolution-slider-youtube-video/

In your case, to get those pages that are part of the demo, you need to retry import a few times. Better solution of course is to make changes to the installation to increase memory since sooner or later you will face issues with limited memory. Pls see the below post for some help -

http://portfoliotheme.org/support/forums/topic/unable-to-activate-requirements/#post-2390

If you continue to run into issues, pls email me a temp login (see bottom right box on my themeforest profile page) to the site and I can take a look. Thanks

Quick question…
I got the demo of the site up but don’t know how to change the background of where the testimonials are at? It’s the background of the hills at the frontpage.

Also, how do I get the logo lineup with the menu as you have in your preview site in themeforest? My logo goes either above or below the menu line.

LiveMesh

For logo issue, pls send me the site URL so that I can see what’s happening. I would prefer a temp login as well if possible. Pls use the bottom right box on my profile page for the email.

For changing the background of the testimonials, you just need to edit the page section named “Team” and change the image URL in the [segment] shortcode which looks like this -

[segment id="client-testimonials1" background_color='#374a4e' background_image="http://portfoliotheme.org/appdev/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/parallax-bg2.jpg" parallax_background="true" background_speed="0.4"]

There is more information on this shortcode in the documentation for the theme.
