it’s been over 8 days for a response to make very simple changes. This is really bad support!

Thanks for responding after 9 days. I’m not sure why you deleted the previous comment I made about the support for your theme being really bad. I think if a buyer has to wait for so long to get any kind of response (text color change for the theme) from the author, it’s pretty bad. I also only made one very small comment only after waiting for days for a very simple solution. I’m trying to create very simple website for my client and I can’t do simple text color change on it because it’s not working on your theme. I would never make a bad comment about anyone, but geez… taking 9 days to respond is way too long. and no answers were given.

Telling me to go to the support forum is kind of ridiculous. I spent a lot of time reading your manual (several times), googled solutions for it, tried the solutions suggested by support forum, etc… Since, it wasn’t working, I came here to ask you(the author) for the solutions. After waiting days, I again tried to find the solution for it to no avail. And then, I waited and waited and waited and waited for a response. All I wanted was to have it as the way you have it in your demo. Also, the “button” link feature is not working on explorer.

All of the simple issues I’m having is very specific to your theme. I literally spent hours trying to find the solution for it. So, I’m asking you again. 1. How do i change the text color to white as you have it on your demo site? 2. How do I get the button link to work on explorer? It works on Google chrome.

I’ve worked with several other themes for my clients, and this is by far the worst support. Are you going to take another 9 days to respond to this and tell me to go somewhere else? If you are, please be specific to where. Give me a page number to the manual, or a shortcode you have on your demo site, or a link to the support forum.

Please do not erase this comment. It’s only fair that other people should know that the support for this theme is really bad.

Kindly suggest, the change required for showing the list of categories in place of Other Works.

What i want to do is, to show other projects in the same category instead of other projects from the portfolio.

Hi there – great theme. I’m trying to turn my home page into a single Blog post with Video, but I can’t seem to be able to do it. Essentially I want my home page to look identical to the “Video Projects” page on your demo site – is there anything you can do to assist me? Cheers Matt

Hi,

As far as I know, in WP you can’t set single post to be your homepage…

Hi great theme it has everything that I need, just one quick/silly question before the purchase, is it possible to change the background content? Simple Yes is enough i will figure it out later at the forum.

Thanks!

wpbakery

Of course. Images used for background are just for the demo purposes.

Hello, this is a very nice theme and am planning on purchasing it but first I would like to know if it would be possible to put advertisements on the home page. Or put a place where this could be inserted? For any other page ads could go in the sidebar. Maybe add the side bar code to the index.php file?

Please let me know if this would be possible for this theme as it is the only thing stopping me from buying it.

Thanks in advance.

wpbakery

Hi,

This theme doesn’t have any ads options built in. You’ll need to modify (insert ads code in your template files) templates to achieve that.

To place ads at the home page you can do something like this: open home_page.php and make bottom part look like this: http://pastebin.com/jz2Jcp4J then add css styling to your new div.
#unique_id { position: absolute; left: 200px; bottom: 200px; z-index: 150; }

Hi thank you for this very nice theme. I have installed it but i am having problems with the background image (uploaded a couple of images but they won’t work) and the tabs. I uploaded the sample xml and also there tabs are not displayed as tabs but as a list.

Is it a problem of hosting or am i supposed to install some sort of plugin? i dont seem to find help in the instructions.

A resposnse would be more than appreciated! Thanks

Hi Mixey , thank you for this awesome theme!

There is an ALT tag problem for images in Portfolio . The images didnt show me up the alternative text for images.

Can you please fix that ?

Kind regards.

wpbakery

Could you share more details? You are talking about images in the single portfolio page in the slider? or somewhere else?

P.S. Thanks for compliments!

Hello mixey,

we are thinking of buying your theme and i have one question.

Can we use architectos theme with kenburns slideshow module for wordpress (http://www.newone.org/wordpress-ken-burns-slideshow-v102-codecanyon). This is because our client likes your theme but with the effect of ken-burns like it works in this theme (http://themes.themegoods.com/crius_wp/).

Your theme is not responsiev.How difficult is to make it responsive; any module for this that make the work automatic;;

Thanks kind regards yiannis

wpbakery

Hi,

Changing slider will take a time, this isn’t possible out of the box. So you’ll need to invest your time to achieve that. Same with responsiveness, you’ll need to tweak css files to for mobile devices with @media queries in css.

I would say this isn’t a very basic stuff…

Hello Philip or Mickey.

I emailed envato support re my previous issue. A simple change on the Title and Tagline at WP settings for the architectos theme is so frustrating for me. Free Themes I have tested can easily do this with no problems. I have reloaded WP and uploaded/installed Architectos several times to no avail and and this is eating a lot of my time. Because of this I have requested a refund and a change of theme.

Great experience with this product. As someone who just started working with Wordpress a few weeks ago, and having spent many hours struggling with free themes, I decided to go with Architectos after seeing what a friend had done with it and checking out the visual composer plug in. Definitely worth $45 as it takes so much guesswork out of customization (just be sure to enable the visual composer for blog posts if you need to, by default it is only for static pages). Not only that but the support has been really great as well- typically 24-48 hour response times for my questions and they are consistently able to solve them. Seems like some commenters got confused and tried to resolve their issues here and so are hammering the authors for lack of support but if they read the documentation they would see the support forum is at support.wpbakery.com. Don’t let that dissuade you if you are thinking of picking this up.

Thank you very much for your feedback! Reading this kind of comments is very inspiring :)

Hi Mixey, All I wanted is plain and simple- change the Architectos title to my blog name and the “since 1843” tagline to my custom tagline. This is what is frustrating me coz I am able to configure the rest of the theme parameters except this Title and Tagline. I maybe doing something wrong (or a bug) but this process should be very simple based on online tutorials and free themes I have tested.

I will open a ticket to get this going (new to this stuff) but even though I like this theme (first theme to purchase after countless searches) it irks me that a s simple change takes a lot of time and so I am looking at return/refund and going with another theme.

Thanks for your help..

wpbakery

Hi,

Support forums located here: http://support.wpbakery.com Regarding your question. “Architectos since 1843” is a logotype and this means this is a static image and you can’t change it throw the title/tagline interface. Title/tagline are used for page header (in html code). Back to your problem, you should create your logo (static image file) and then upload that logo throw the theme options page under the logotype section.

Mixey, The ticket, re the my prior post, I submitted to envato is GGO -154-34857. I submitted this last night.

Is there another ticket I need to send to WPBakery?

Thanks

wpbakery

Envato support isn’t connected to theme authors. Majority of authors have external suppport forums. http://support.wpbakery.com

Hello Exaltron: Perhaps you can help me since you just installed Architectos. Just like you I really like Architectos but for some reason I just cannot change the Site Title and Tag line via the settings. I have look into the CSS style but I am no coder. I searched all over the support forum and I cannot find any topic re this. Watched numerous YouTube tutorials and everybody seems to be able to do this simple change even on free themes with no problems. I understand Architectos is a premium theme but it beats me that a simple change such as the Site Title and Tag line is eating a lot of my time. The rest of the configuration seems to be working fine except this.

Appreciate your help. Thanks

Hi, I love your theme! Congrats! I’m so interested in buying it, but I need to know something. Does the theme allow to have multiple portfolio pages and multiple blog pages? Thanks in advance

wpbakery

Multiple portfolio and blog pages can be “created” with use of portfolio and blog categories.

Default-user

Thank you! I don’t want to bother you, just another question: how many slides can I have on homepage?

wpbakery

Unlimited. However, more slides will affect loading speed.

Hi! compliment for your themes, very good works! I wanted to ask an opinion: if I want to integrate an ecommerce plugin for wordpress in this template, do you think there may be problems to make it work? I’m going to use the template to present the products and to allow the sale …

wpbakery

No, you shouldn’t face any problems. This is a well coded theme (according to WP standards)
