Hi,

Presale question:

Hi,

This looks like a flexible and nice theme. I was wondering how easy it would be to create a homepage like this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/734912/sportsticker_home.jpg

= page with sidebar, layerslider or post slider in the main part (around 600px wide), latest blog posts underneath the slider and in the sidebar a thumb list of the featured images of portfolio posts of a certain category (and when you click on one you go to a gallery portfolio post)

Can i build this easily with a page builder or by using shortcodes? Or do i need to do some customizing for that?

Thanks

a01

ThemeFusion

Hey a01 :)

Some of that can be done, but that would take some customization work to achieve. You can have a recent work sidebar widget, a sidebar on home page, a layer slider and recent posts. But that design style is a bit different

Hi guys! :)

Feature Question:

DRAG and DROP Editor

MUCH NEEDED

I love this theme, it’s powerpacked and support is AMAZING. However, due to so many customization options, when building a complex or detailed page it gets EXTREMELY messy and can be difficult to navigate where and what belongs to what. Code ends up scattered all over the page builder, with multiple shortcodes, multiple [one_half last=”yes”], [separator top=”20”], etc.. and so on … gets real messy, fast.

Are you planning on implementing some kind of Drag and Drop WYSIWIG Editor to simplify the creation process? I think that many folks and first time devs would find this to be extremely helpful, and of course in turn would only increase your sales.

I purchased another theme prior to Avada that had an amazing Drag and Drop WYSIWIG Editor, making page creation a breeze! I, as well as I’m sure thousands of other would agree, Avada is in desperate need of a Drag and Drop Editor!!

It is essential, especially for a theme of this magnitude.

When will we be seeing this as part of the theme? I hope very very soon.

Thanks, you guys are great!!!

:)

ThemeFusion

Hey Brett :)

Yes a page builder will be nice, and we will be adding one. Although the majority of feedback we receive, using shortcodes is not a messy thing, and you can keep them organized very easily in using the text editor.

If you are only using the visual editor, switch to the text editor and add line breaks between each one, you will see its much easier to use.

We are adding a page builder, but I cant give you a timeframe for when that is done. One of the main reasons why is because Themeforest is changing the rules on using page builders and they have not finalized all of them so we authors have no idea what can and cant be done yet. Once the rules are finalized, all themes (old and new) will need to abide by them and be updated to comply. So we are waiting for them to be finished, then will complete our plan for page builder.

We’ll let you know when that time comes, we always post on our forum for news like that.

Also, for future request, I would highly suggest posting in the feature request thread on our forum http://theme-fusion.com/forums/topic/avada-feature-requests-3/

Thanks!

Hi,

I want to purchase your theme, but can its homepage slider be transparent below the menu, like the Kallyas theme [link removed]

and do you know why your is better than Kallyas one for purchase?

ThemeFusion

Hey There :)

The menu will not be transparent at this time, but we have it on our feature list to add sometime in the future. We are planning on giving options to use transparency in certain areas, the header would be one of them.

As for your other question, that is not something I can answer specifically as Im not he author of that other theme. All I can tell you is that our users love Avada, and we have been in the #1 spot for 11 straight months and outsell all other themes. We pride ourselves on quality work, quality support and free lifetime updates for our users.

Thanks! (fyi … comment was flagged to remove link to other theme)

cloudapi

can you tell me when this can be done, as this is the main reason that I want to buy it, can u do it in the coming days so I can purchase it now and work on it, then update it when you add the transparent feature in few days?

ThemeFusion

Unfortunately we’re unable to give an ETA on features like that. I do know that it will not be in our next update, which is v3.1 and will be ready in a few weeks. After that is a possibility but each update takes 4-6 weeks.

Thanks!

hi, could you send me the code needed to make this slider “Post Slider With Attachments”? (like this page http://theme-fusion.com/avada/post-sliders/)

another question, is possible to open images of the slider with prettyphoto?

thanks in advance and congratulations again this theme is awesome ;)

ThemeFusion

Hey :)

The attachment flexslider works with images attached to a particular page, or you can insert a page Id. When you are on apge, you can choose to insert media. When you click that button, at the top you can choose the dropdown menu and click on “uploaded to this page”. From there, you can add images to the page, which are attachments and will show up in the slider.

See the shortcode docs at this link for a full explanation. http://theme-fusion.com/avada-shortcodes/#flex

When setting up the revolution slider everything seems to be working fine, except that when viewed on different sized computers and mobile, the alignment of the text layers gets thrown off. Any clue how to fix this? Thank you

sdg.themediacaptain.com -Mike Montgomery

ThemeFusion

Hey Mike!

Hmmm, it might be due to a few different things. Its hard to say without seeing it. Layers are auto-scaled down for mobile, so depending on the placement of your layers, they might overlap.

Can you signup at our forum, then post up a new topic so we can take a look at your site and settings. 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.

Hi,

I re-sized the browser window on my laptop in order to get an impression on how it could look like on a smartphone. As expected, Avada responded nicely.

However, when looking at your demo site on my iPhone 5, it looked nothing like in my “simulation” above. On my iPhone 5, everything was mostly scaled down to a hardly readable size.

So why is Avada working nicely in my Safari browser on my laptop, but not in my Safari browser on my iPhone 5?

Many thanks in advance for your response.

Kind regards, Thomas

Hey Thomas :)

You need to make sure that you have closed out the top Themeforest bar. Or use this link, view it on your phone.

Yes most definitely, we are all for more stricter guidelines. The issue though, is it will be some time because the guidelines are already changing based off lots of feedback from authors. They have not released a new set yet, the link you gave was the original post, but its changing. Once a final set comes out (who knows when that will be), we will then be making necessary changes and will issue an update. For exisiting themes like Avada, there is a lot of time, especially since a final set of guidelines are not completed. You can read more about it here, http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/announcement-wordpress-theme-submission-requirements/102320?page=1

But once its done we will absolutely be doing it, any theme that does not will be removed from the marketplace ;)

Hi Guys,

Great theme! We are adding a blog to our current site and are a bit concerned about the load a premium theme such as Avada would put on the database. The theme is great because it appeals to everyone’s needs but at the same time many of the options will never be used on any one site. Is there a way to disable certain code or functions within the script? We can handle the large file size but how will all the unused function impact our bandwidth consumption, server speed and overall resources?

I would think that with your expertise that the framework contains the function/plugin and seamlessly exists without a major draw on the server. What you don’t use, won’t have any impact on resources.

I hope you can understand my question and where I’m coming from on this.

Kind Regards

ThemeFusion

Hey :)

You can disable all of the premium sliders in theme options, and we are adding more disabling option in updates. But even with all the features enabled on our demo, its lightning quick. It will not be an issue for you.

Thanks!

Hi,

Just a quick question prior to buying. Is this theme only for WordPress? Because currently we do not use it and manage our own domain/servers by our self. So, can I use this theme like for a stand-alone website?

Thanks.

ThemeFusion

Hey,

Its a wordpress theme, so you have to use it with Wordpress.

Presale question:

Hoping to use it for a film production company based in China however we have a problem: Vimeo is blocked out here, rendering the portfolio section useless.

Is it possible to use a HTML5 plugin player such as videoJS in the portfolio section and retain the dynamic movement when clicking different categories?

ThemeFusion

Hey :)

Right now it works with Vimeo or Youtube out of the box. We’ve not tested it with video JS so I cant say for sure. But to retain all the same functionality as you see in the demo, youtube or vimeo would be needed unless you make some code customizations.

Yep, that feature has been added since the second version back in August of 2012. Its on the general tab in theme options, there is a box to check for responsive design. Check it for responsive, uncheck it for non-responsive.

As shown the picture, am i able to do it? portfolio

ThemeFusion

Yes you can use another name, however in the current version the sidebar will be there unless you modify the code to have it removed. But in our upcoming version, we are giving an option to not use the sidebar. All future updates are free once you buy the theme,

Thanks, hope this helps!

Default-user

That will be great. By the way, how is the loading speed?

ThemeFusion

Its very good, test out the demo to see :) Google page speeds rates it 86/100, and that is with all features on. You can disable sliders if you are not using them, which will make it even faster. And we recommend using the free W3TC cache plugin, its great.

Lastly, as i am intending to get an shared hosting and knew that some of the wordpress theme does consume high CPU usage on the server. So, i am wondering does your theme will be one of these that consume high CPU usage on the server. If it does, any advise of the type of hosting to go for?

ThemeFusion

Hi :)

Do you want to hide the categories underneath each portfolio post? There is not an option for that, but we can assist you in removing them but it will be a code change.

I cant say that it consumes high CPU, all themes here on THemeforest are premium type themes and shared serving is never a good thing, even with a more basic theme. I would recommend not using shared serving and using a host like Dreamhost, http://www.dreamhost.com

Hi, I have registered for your support forum about 5 hours ago but still haven’t received the email with the pasword in – can you help? My email address is emily@brainstormcreative.co.uk.

I have set up the hom epage but there seems to be big gaps between some of the elements and when I examine the html there are extra <p></p> between some elements. How can I stop this happening?

ThemeFusion

Hey :)

Did you check your junk mail folder? Sometimes your email provider might put it there.

If you dont have it, please email me your forum username and I can adjust it for you. To email us, visit the link below and find the “email theme fusion” box on the lower right hand side, send us an email from there. Don’t worry about the auto-reply, I’ll still get the email.

http://themeforest.net/user/ThemeFusion

For your question, if you are seeing extra gaps then you may of hit return in teh visual editor between sections which will add extra space. Clcik on the text editor of your page and look for “ ”, if you see those remove them.

If that is not it then we would need to see your site, which we can do once we get you on the forum :)

Thanks!

pre-sales question.

What wordpress version does avada works best with

ThemeFusion

You wil be good as long as you are on WP 3.2 or higher. But we always recommend using the latest version of WP, it best to use the most up to date version, which is WP 3.5.2

Those are licensed stock images from thinckstock.com or shutterstock.com. You can find many similar ones too on fotolia.com for cheaper.
