I like this theme and its flexibility very much. I now have a site using an older version of Joomla and am considering using Wordpress and this theme for an upgrade. It’s for a smaill coaching&training company so it needs functionality to promote workshops & trainings & events. Is this theme prepared for functionality like that? And what third party product could I best use for presenting a appetizing list whit pictures of events, and some sort of coming-event list and a training detail page and the possibility to enrol in a program or event in a venue, and an counter for a next big event? Shortly everything you would amagine when organizing and promoting events & workshops. I saw another theme that had a nice presentation I like [link removed] and the site http://www.familieopstellingen.nl/ has some nice list-presentation and an upcoming events in the start page with extra info and picture when you hover over it. I would like something that is integrated and looks like more advanced than a basic calendar with just some textual info. I like your theme better than the alternative and would like that sort of functionality embedded. Can you advice please? Would it be wise for me to switch to Wordpress for such a site? Thanks, Hans
ps. My website is in the Dutch language, so I especially like too that you already offer a Dutch language file with it. It seems like a great theme, but I need a well presented solution for events and activities in it before I can decide.
For events such as that, you would need to use a plugin like Events Manager or Event Espresso. And I would imagine you can use either of those plugins for all those other items you asked for (appetizing list whit pictures of events, and some sort of coming-event list and a training detail page and the possibility to enrol in a program or event in a venue).
I’m not sure ab out a counter for an event, you will need to see if the plugin offers that, or possibly use a different one.
Yes you can use Wordpress for that type of thing, it just depends on your preference. Avada is not an event type of theme so you will need to use a premium plugin to get all those features you need, but it can be done.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your quick respons. I will look for the plugins you mentioned, and see what they have to offer. Your answer still leaves me some questions. Would you please respond, if you can?
I know Avaya is not an event type theme, that’s also the basis of my original question about a plugin, but my search on Themeforest just game up with a few church themes, of which I liked the one I mentioned earlier somewhat, and a small number of themes for a schoolsetting, that I didn’t like that much and weren’t hat slick of to ICT-business-like. I haven’t found one I like for joomla either, so its not something that seems easy available.
Do you think I should be better of continue searching for a theme that is already made for events? Or do you know of a theme more suitable, that you know, so that I can look at it. I haven’t found theme’s for a personal development or coaching company, organising some workshops etc. Is it perhaps the best choice to use a general theme like Avada with use of a third party plugin?
The church and events theme also uses third party plugins, so it seems that mostly a event theme would be necessary if presentation would require changing the theme itself. Is that likely necessary for better presentation, or is it in Wordpress also that a plugin uses part of its own css files and changes should be made in the plugin?
I don’t feel confident and capable to try add on or change advanced theme’s like avada, so DIY is no option if a change in the themefiles are neccessary. I have changed my current theme a bit, but that was before everything got advanced and responsive. It seems all to advanced for me now. So I would like to by a theme that is as complete as possible for my purpose, so I perhaps just have to select a plugin or something.
In my question about if wordpress would be a good choice you said it is just a question of preference. Since wordpress seems simpler to use and using a good theme it would be oke. I wonder if performance and security is sufficient, less or better in Wordpress, Could you comment on that? Thank you very much in advance. Hans
Honestly it all depends on what you want. If this is purely for events then you probably would be best off using an event theme that has those features built in.
A lot of what you are asking is hard to answer in detail. Wordpress theme + plugin can be used to get what you want, or use an event theme that has it built in. You may need a plugin anyway even with an event plugin. Depending on what you need and want, you may need to customize either option to your liking, I cannot say for certain if you will be required to do additional CSS changes or not, that all depends on what you need and want with it during setup.
If customizations are not an option for you, then you should be finding a theme that already has the features you need. That would be the best option imo.
I’m not familiar with using Joomla so I cannot compare it to Wordpress for security or performance. I imagine there are several articles online you can find that compare the two. For our part, Wordpress has always been sufficient for anything we have done so we highly recommend it. But again, its a personal preference.
how can i make a rollover image? (link open in a new tab)
In the portfolio options box is this option: http://d.pr/i/bZ6Y

Thank you very much
Hey Avada team. Just a quick and fairly simple question but I can’t figure it out. On the portfolio single post page I would like a 5px gap between images as you scroll down the page. Do you know what css I need to add to achieve this, if possible? I only ask as I photograph weddings and showcase a lot of images on one page and have prebuilt photoshop actions that create collages and they all have 5px gaps between the images. When I upload them to my site Wordpress uses 20px gaps as standard so it throws off the layout a bit.
Thanks in advance for your help
We may need to see your site and inspect it on our forum to see what its doing, but my advice is to use the separator shortcode and insert a negative value to reduce the 20px gap. You can insert it in top or bottom, just depends on where you use it. See below.
[separator top=”-15” bottom=”“]
Rate 10/10 for this theme and the after sale services and support.
Great job Avada. =)
Thank you for the feedback and rating! Woot!
Hi ThemeFusion, i purchase this theme cause is awsome,
now im working in a proyect. for houses villas etc
so i purchase a plug in named : WP Real Estate
but when i activate the page disappear
Your theme have option to Real Estate ?? Custom Property Search
maybe theres another way to make this in your theme Avada
i hope your answer
We do not have built in real estate options so a plugin would be needed. I do know other users have used IDX plugin for real estate which is the most popular one so you may want to check that one out. For example, here is a real estate site using Avada, http://www.urbanvue.com
i need to add a search inside in layer slider or revolution slider like this example
No that is not the IDX plugin I was thinking of, but that one might work too. I was referring to this one: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-idx/ But there are many out there.
Hmmm, it will take custom work probably to put that in a layer or rev slider. I’ve never seen that in one of those before. But I’m sure it can be done. Unfortunately we cannot provide support for that type of custom work.
Let us know how it goes!
You can not charge extra for doing that?
At this time we are not able to take on customization projects, our team is purely focused on theme updates and support at this time. But there are plenty of services out there to use, like micorlancer.com. tweaky.com, etc.
Hello, I am developing a website with your theme but I need to implement this plugin WP http://codecanyon.net/item/wp-real-estate/full_screen_preview/2550021 , but the problem is they are not compatible and I cause conflict because having both activated the content of my pages makes loading and then disappears
We’ve not used that plugin before so we cannot say for certain. I do know other users have used IDX plugin for real estate which is the most popular one so you may want to check that one out. For example, here is a real estate site using Avada, http://www.urbanvue.com
I want to know if it is possible that the main header where your Theme where’s the logo could be above the image you are using as background transparent.
like .png or background-color: rgba
Yo can set a transparent header as long as you are using Avada v3.4, there is a new option to set it as transparent in theme options or on a per page basis.
Im using 3.4
I think you dont understandme i want a header with slider behind it.
but NOT TRANSPARENT 100% i want to add color black to opacity like this website http://themeforest.net/item/autotrader-car-marketplace-html-template/full_screen_preview/5234565
i wait your quick answer
I see, that is not an option at the moment, it can be fully transparent or solid color. In the future we will add options to use rgba in the color fields. That can be done but it will require custom CSS, target the header background color and use the rgba css.
so you can helpme to add the css ¡?
is just add a background-color in the transparent area
please help me to add it
You can post on our support forum and ask if they can assist. We do not provide customization services as we do not have the time, but if its a small css fix then we can give that out. Our support team will need to inspect your site and determine the level of this request, if they can provide it they will, if not they will recommend you to get a dev service like microlancer.com.

Hi. Can I change the total width of the layout of the site?
You can but it requires custom CSS changes, right now there is not an option to do that, but the good news is there will be in our next major version, v4.0. Coming soon.
Hi! This is a great theme, and it has worked wonders for my website!
Though I have one gripe, on the home page we’re using the shortcode for the blog and the infinite scroll seems to be reloading the first page over again.
Would you be able to have a look? http://chameleonevents.com.au/
Yes you have something going on here, possibly a 3rd party plugin conflict. Please disable any extra plugins and then test it out to see.
Also we issued a new update v3.4, although nothing changed on the infinite scrolling side, but lots of cool new features.
If the issue persists, please post this up on our support forum and our support team will take good care of you. Create a new topic with details about the issue, your site URL and version of Avada. For faster service, please include your WP and FTP login info when creating the thread.
Thank you for your reply! It was a plugin issue – thanks for your support
You are welcome
I’m excited with your theme but I’ve found some issues:
1) If browse my site with a mobile device the background image looks too large because on mobile isn’t fixed but scroll together the content – see this page http://www.tuscany-photo.com/blog-2/
2) I updated the theme with the last version, but some social icons disappeared from the social box sharing of the blog post
3) I set the home page http://www.tuscany-photo.com in wide mode, set the background “content” with an image, but itsn’t displayed, I see only the background image of the page over the whole screen (content background and outer area)
It should work in boxe and wide mode both but it doesn’t work properly
1. The background image can only be sized down so much on mobile, if its larger than the mobile screen, which it it, then it will not be able to show the entire thing.
2. This seems to be an update issue or customization issue. Please check any custom CSS you have or edits and see if they are the cause, or possibly a 3rd party plugin? I’ve updated dozens of sites and have not come across this, definitely a weird one. Did you fully delete the old theme and upload the new one?
3. I see a background image on your home page in main content, http://d.pr/i/AQ6A This looks correct to me. This option here http://d.pr/i/svis will set an image in the background of the main content area.

I download the latest version (3.4).
The “Import demo content” does not work, I returned an error:
Error 500 – Internal server error
What does it do?
It worked before on version 3.31

It’s hard to say at this point, we would need you to signup and post a new thread on our forum and included your WP and FTP login info so we can check. It is definitely related to your server, memory or permissions. Post up a new topic and w’ell take a look.
Also, you can import individual sections of the demo content through XML files, located at “avada > framework > plugins > importer > data”

Hi – do you have an email address I can contact you at? I am helping a friend setup his new website and he purchases your Avada theme. I need to get into the forum support and ask some questions, look for answers. But I need to know how I can do this on his behalf. I have further purchase details available to verify everything but don’t want to post here. Can you please let me know.
You will need to get his purchase code, follow the steps here: http://theme-fusion.com/avada-doc/getting-started/free-forum-support/
As long as you have the purchase code from his account, as pictured above, you will be able to signup and create the forum account. 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.
is it possible to have the Blog layout with filtering as in Portfolio?
Those category filters are only for port posts at the moment, but we are going to be adding them to blog posts in a future release, I’m pushing for it to be in v4.0.
Thank you for your quick reply. What’s an awesome customer services!! I apologize if this is not the right place to post these type of questions. Would you be willing to customize this feature for a fee? Bought your theme for a while now and this is the only feature that is holding us back from migrating our old site. Or could you show us the options to convert blogs into portfolio that would work with your theme I would greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately at this time we are not able to take on custom work, however we can recommend using someone from Microlancer.com, there are several great devs on there who can take on projects like this.
And we should have this added natively in v4.0 anywhere from 5-8 weeks.

I watched your video and tried both Wordpress and FTP upload. I get the same issue Stylesheet is missing. and I cannot see the theme, I just purchased this. What can I do to fix. Please help me.
Check out the Common Wordpress Install Issues section on this page below.
It explains what that error is and how to fix it.
That worked thank you!
Thank you for the best theme out their in my opinion!
Just a question about the revolution slider. I want to use a slider that changes but have the captions stay the same.
Example being if I have 3 slides that change but I want the left hand side of the slide to have a description of the website alongside the slider like the Revolution Slider with Captions, but I don’t want the Captions to reload or change with the image of the slider?
I understand that the Captions are created with the slide so once the slide changes the captions is incorporated with the slider image and changes to a new one.
But is it possible to have just the images change and keep a captions text description the same for all three slides?
I hope this makes sense otherwise please an example.
Please see this as an example w w w. tfdm.co.za / home/?id=3
Thanks for the comments! Hmmm, well this may be possible but you canot split it up into 3 slides, each time a new slide loads the caption area will also reload. So you would have to put all your content for the 3 slides on one slide, and setup the timing of each element correctly. Each element needs a start time and an end time, it will be some work to set it up but that will work for what you need.
I hope you can help. I have not bought this theme myself so do not have a receipt number to be able to join your forum. I do not own the site that uses this theme but have been asked to do some work/promotion on it. The errors I am fighting with is that after every url this appears: #.Uy1mq1dSmQs can you tell me why that is and how to stop this happening please? Many Thanks
Unfortunately that is not coming from our theme, possibly a 3rd party plugin or from a customization. Outside of that the only thing we can do is have you post on our support forum so you will need to get the purchase code from the person who bought the theme and setup the forum account.
