Hi there. Avada seems very impressive; considering it for my client. Does it support e-commerce, & membership plugins? Have Woocommerce & WP-Members plugins in mind. (if there are better plugin alternatives, do say)
Woocommerce is a yes, many of our users already use it. Have not tried Wo Members but will add that to our list. We are wanting to add private galleries soon so maybe that will be waht we use. Although I cant say when we can test that out, but I will add it to our list.
If I add a link to an article, how can I make it so it show on the home page, I mean without having to click on read more to see it?
Example : I add an entry to the blog blah blah blah THIS RIGHT HERE IS A LINK it would not show in the list, only once you click on Read more to see the whole thing. Some entries will be short and don’t really need the reader to open the whole thing to see its contents
Make sure the link is within the excerpt length. Then in the shortcode, set “strip_HTML=”false” and it will show HTML content. By default its set to “true” just change that to false.
Oh and make sure you are using a version of Avada that supports that, which I think is 2.1.2 or higher.
If you have further questions, post this up on our support forum where we can assist you further and get your URL and login info if needed.

Sorry for the ignorance. But where exactly is this shortcode. In functions.php?
No worries, its a shortcode used in the page editor, no php is required.
Check out our documentation file, under the “Shortcodes” section, and also watch our “How to Setup Pages & Shortcodes” video tutorial on youtube chanlle, our forum or in our docs. It shows you.
Shortcodes are just buttons you press in the visual editor, then you populate it with your options. The recent news one has many options like excerpt, meta, thumbnails, etc.
Thanks. Yes I found it on the admin section. I have bought many themes, Most of them from evento. Also have used a few free ones. This is by far the most flexible theme ever. As well as great support from the developer. Many developers after they’ve sold a few hundreds, they just stop caring. The case with a theme I bought called WP Travellers.
ThemeFusion is diferent, these people take good care of their customers. Thanks.
One question, is there a way to show the post type icon (you know the little icon for pictures, quotes, etc next to the post) next to the post tittle after you have enabled “Turn the blog into full width” under the blog options?
I like my blog in full wide but still want to be able to show the post type. Kind of how tumblr does.
Thanks for the nice comments, we appreciate hearing that and will continue to provide this level of service our users have some to expect!
For the question, its not currently possible with v2.1.3, but we’ve added new blog layouts in our upcoming update and one of them has the little icon inside a date box. You can select the icon for each post and it will show along with it. Its very cool
And there are so very nice surprises coming in our next update! Stay tuned!
Thank you so much. Can’t wait for the next release. Not to be a pain but is there any date for the next update?
We’re shooting for the next 1-2 weeks.
We have moved all support questions to our support forum where we can better serve our users. We can answer pre sales questions and very minor theme questions here in the Themeforest comments but anything else will need to be handled on the support forum.
Why do we use our own support forum?

2. Our forum is searchable, plus anyone else can respond. We have an amazing user base of people who love to help and share info.
3. Many questions are asked repeatedly so performing a search allows you to find answers quickly.
4. We have an ever growing knowledge base and video tutorials section for our users. Its a much better place for our users to get help.
5. This allows us to answer quickly & efficiently since we only have to respond in one avenue

Is it possible to customize contact page with more items ?
How can i do it ?
Thanks for your answer
Do you mean to add more fields to the form? Right now the only way to do that is to edit the contact.php file and add more fields manually. Or if you are not comfortable with that, you can always use Contact Form 7 plugin which is free and allows you to use as many fields as you want. You can insert the form shortcode plus a google map embed code onto a page.
You might also want to post this up and search on our forum for the contact fields I believe this has come up from another user who posted what he did to add more fields.
My tweets aren’t showing up in the footer. I’ve input all the information needed and its still not showing up. Any solutions?
Hi Are you using the newer version of Avada that has the new twitter widget that uses consumer keys, etc? If so, please make sure you are only using your twitter Id, not the URL.
Also, double check you copied all the codes over correctly from the twitter app.
Create a new topic with the above info, then post a second reply with your username/password and mark it as a “private” reply so only we will see those credentials and will be able to login and check the issue.
I’m using Version 2.1.1, I’ve made sure all the codes are copied over correctly, and I’m using my twitter ID. I’ll create a new topic with the above info.
Yes please make a new topic with your login info, Also, you should update to v2.1.3
HOW TO UPDATE YOUR THEME
IMPORTANT UPDATE INFORMATION
And since the weekend is upon us the response time will be longer on the forum. Usually its about the same on the weekend as the week, like 6-8 hours, but we have a staff member on vacation for the weekend and are short handed. We answer threads from oldest to newest so we will get to it soon!
I just wanted to thank you for doing such a great job with this theme! I’ve downloaded 50+ themes and this is by far the easiest / most customizable theme I’ve found. Nice work!
Wow thank you! We are very happy to hear that. And its only going to get easier
If you have not already, please take a moment and rate the theme for us!
This theme looks great and I am interested in purchasing Avada but my product galleries need to be oriented so the photos are in portrait orientation. I noticed your portfolio examples are landscape oriented photos. Is there a way for me to change the orientation of the 4 column text portfolio layout so the photos are taller than they are wide (portrait orientation) and still have room for the text below? Is there an area to change the standard width/height of the photos in the portfolios? Thank you
Yes by default they will be horiz. There is away you can change it, but it does require some manual editing, but we do have a step by step guide on our support forum for how to do it. When you do it though, it will need to be all the same size as it is now, but you can choose that size. And sometime in the near future we will include a masonry portfolio layout that will allow you to use both orientations on the same page. that will come in an update, and all future update are free once you buy
Any plans to add a Table Shortcode (not pricing based) in future updates? Individual column size would ideally be able to be set as well.
Yes sir! Its already done (2 tables) and will be included in our upcoming update which we are working on now. I cant give an exact date but it will be soon. All future updates are free as well once you buy the theme.
This is a nice theme, the only thing is i found some confusing the support forum, I can´t see where i can create a new topic.
For example i have problems to set the sidebar in portfolio page (not single post) as in the demo theme – http://prntscr.com/159q0c -
I´ve follow the process to register in the forum but unfortunately with no success.
can you help me please?
For the forum, please scroll down to the bottom of the avada section when logged in, you will see the “Create A New Topic” fields. They are all the way at the bottom of the page. We will be changing that with a new site design soon.
For the sidebar, you just need to select your portfolio layout, then in the page options box (below the page editor field) you can select “Portfolio: Full Width: Yes Or No”, choose “No”. then you can choose “Portfolio: Sidebar Position: Left or Right.
If you have further questions, post this up on our support forum where we can assist you further.
I bought Avada theme, I need to know how I can activate the banner slides.
The plugins are already activated, you need to go and build your slides then assign them to a page. You can also download our demo slides from our support forum to import.
already purchase this awesome theme as i said
gonna learn through all of it before posting any questions in the forum
by the way, where can i get the envato license verification? in the downloadable .txt file?
Yes we’re sorry about that, Themeforest just changed the location of the license certificate two days ago. Its now located under the “download” button. You have to click the download button, then a popup menu comes up, you can then choose to download the license certificate from the list.
Thanks and see you on the forum!
What about the the Masonry Portfolio?
There is a PSD file included in AVADA 2.1.3 Contents Folder.
This File is named:
It shows a great kind of Portfolio but i can’t find it in the control Panel of AVADA.
Where i can find the menu to built this porfolio
Yes there is a PSD for it but its not implemented into the design yet. Anything on our demo is in the WP file, the PSD’s are more for design and will be used at one point. The masonry portfolio layout is coming in 1-2 updates.
Also, I replied on the forum as well. Please follow up there if you need to, or if any other questions come up. That way we only answer the questions once.
Great!!! thank you for the information and for your attention.
No problem my friend! Its coming soon, along with all other good stuff
It’s possible animate the actual Client Slider? Like show in loop? thanks in advance. Great theme.
Hi Not at this time, but we are going to try and include the ability to autoplay the carousel so it loops without any clicking.
Do you have a Showcase section, where there are examples of sites that have been created using the Avada theme? I am particularly interested in any churches that may have used your theme, which does look to be fantastic.
no we dont ahve that yet but are planning on adding a showcase to our demo. here are a few I have on hand.
I would buy the theme but I do not see a search field to the demo site.
How do I activate this field? The search will instantly display the results without proceeding with the confirmation on the search button? I also read the comments that say that while activating this option, the search is not actually on the pages. Are rumors true?. Thank you and congratulations for your work.
Yes there is a search field o our blog pages or sidebars. You can use it in any sidebar.
You can also use it on header 4 http://theme-fusion.com/avada/header-4/
And you can choose to use it in the page title bar instead of the breadcrumbs
theme purchased. I’m trying to sign up to your support using the ‘item purchase code’ following your instructions. My downloads page does not have the ‘Licence Certificate’ tab. I’ve taken a screen print of this but can’t paste it in here. Where is my Item purchase code hiding?
I hope to hear from you soon, thanks, Jana
Thanks for the purchase!
Hi all, I just thought I would post my website here to give everyone a sense of what your website could look like with this theme. Thanks to the developers for providing this awesome theme and offering up such great support on the support forums!
Hey Thanks for the comments, site looks good!
If you have not already, please take a moment and rate Avada for us!
I was playing around with LayerSliderWP and found a weird behavior:
- have one layer containing an image, then applied “Layout & Position” with custom style. The preview looks OK but the live website the image shows up as full width.
My debug: I inspected the image and can’t find my css properties anywhere, even overlapped. I see that the image has full width in the inline style. The only way I was able to set the width was by using !important.
Why is this? Am I doing something wrong?
It could be a few things, we would need you to post on our forum so we can get your login info and see your admin panel.
One thing that first comes to mind is what is your slider size set at? Do you have “px” after the width and height?
First of all, congratulations for the theme. It’s really nice, with a modern design and a lot of features. Now, I was wondering if you could please add Stumbleupon and Delicious in the Theme Options > Social Sharing Links, in order for the icons to appear in the sidebar and header like the other ones? I think they’re really important. I know that we can put custom icon names, images and links, but that will ruin the whole design. And maybe in the future, if possible, a 2 sidebars option (both left and right) would be great! Sometimes only one sidebar is not enough for all the widgets (too much scrolling) .
Looking forward to your response! Thanks!
thanks for the comments! Yes we can certainly add those two socail icons, I’ll put thoe on our update list. And the double sidebar option is already on there and will be implemented in the next few versions, and I’ll make sure the social icons are on the next 1-2 versions.
Awesome news! Looking forward to it. Thanks a lot and great job!
And we’re also going to be trying to add a second set of social icons that are different in design so users can choose which style they like
Thanks for the comments!
Even better! I forgot to mention one thing. It would be nice if Stumbleupon and Delicioos would appear in the blog posts as well. And have you considered adding counters to those social icons that are found inside the posts? Just asking…:D. Seems kinda hard to find a decent social plugin with counters that could be added at the bottom of the post. Most of them are lacking social icons or they differ in height or width, not to mention that some don’t work properly. Think this idea will be highly appreciated by many and will get you more sales:D.
Yeah we have considered counters, that design would need to change to add that. Or maybe we could add that in the rollover popup effect. I’ve noted that as well.
As for the social share box, we have added Pinterest in our new update as that was requested. I’ll add those 2 social icons to the list for the share box as well.
The rollover effect is a cool idea, but i think if the counters are already shown when a viewer accesses the site, they have a psychological effect. When a viewer accesses the site and sees that a post has, let’s say 200 likes, 300+, 500 tweets etc, it’s most likely that he would read that article (and even share it afterwards) because he thinks: “Hey, that looks like a good article judging by the amount of shares”.
But, in the end, any counters are better than no counters .
Thanks a lot and i really appreciate your work!
Yes I agree, that is a great point about counters. It will encourage the user to read and share.
Thanks for the advice, its been noted on our list!
jsut a quick question. It`s showing to leave a comment in my main page and about us page. There is nothing on the code box, where can i disable this option?
Go to theme options on the “general” tab and uncheck “allow comments on all pages”
