Would it be possible to show posts in random order on the home page, rather than just by most recent?

ProgressionStudios

Yeah, that would be possible. It would require one line of code to be adjusted on the homepage but we can help out with that.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hey, the theme look awesome! Just one question before I purchase though – does it support aside posts?

Thanks

ProgressionStudios

We support all post types except aside posts. You could easily add this support in though if you wanted to without much work.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Few questions before the purchase:
  • 1)Is it possible to enlarge social media bar and choose which icons are shown?
  • 2)Is it possible to remove the sidebar?
  • 3)Is it possible to place related posts under the post?
  • 4)Is it possible to make the posts on the homepage and photos attached to the posts smaller?
  • 5)Is it possible to place an ad on the right side of homepage and post pages?
  • 6)Can the sidebar be substituted with another column of posts?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

1) You can customize the social media bar icons. Adjusting the size of them requires one change of CSS that we can help you out with in our support forums.
2) You can remove the sidebar from pages (See Full Width Example). However the categories, homepage, anything listing posts will have the sidebar by default. If you wanted to remove those, you must customize this.
3) You can add related posts using many free plugins from wordpress.org.
4) You can adjust the post’s globally to make them smaller. This works on all pages, not just one though.
5) It is not possible at place an advertisement on the right of the page.
6) Same as question 2. This would require editing some CSS and templates.

Beautiful theme!

Probably right under my eyes but I didn’t see an example for an audio post, could you point me in the right direction please?

ProgressionStudios
Yeah, below is our test installation. I put together a audio example at the top. You can also add a featured image if you want to add art-work just like the other posts:

It seems there is a style conflict with the audio player and the social sharing buttons, has this been fixed?

ProgressionStudios

Yeah, I updated it so you can see how it works. It was merely a test example so I didn’t set a width.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Great theme!

Just have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to replace the ‘most recent’ in the sidebar for ‘most popular’ or ‘most read’? I mean that the theme measures the statistics and creates this list according to that.

2. Is it possible to replace the ‘social media feed’ in the sidebar by ‘readers comments feed’? So that all the comments from the readers on all the different posts are shown in that feed.

3. Is it possible to install a page limitation on the homepage? So for example that only the 10 most recent posts are shown, no possibility to ‘load more’?

4. Is it possible to create a ‘solid’ post? So a post that won’t move, will always be there, other posts moving around it?

5. Is it possible to add more than just 3 photo’s in the ‘photo-slide-post’?

6. Is it possible that people can sign up for the website and receive an email every time there is a new post?

Thanks for the reply!

ProgressionStudios

1) You can adjust the text, however the posts are just a simple list based on a category. There are no statistics that check for this. You can look on wordpress.org if you want to add-in a plugin that checks for these things. There should be a few that can be used in sidebars.

2) No this is not possible.

3) Yes, you can limit how many posts pull into the homepage and turn off the pagination options.

4) You disable the responsive behavior if you wanted. This would limit the posts from moving. Otherwise, the content will adjust as your browser window does.

5) Yes, you can add an unlimited amount of images to your galleries.

6) This functionality is not built-in. You can check wordpress.org as I’m sure there is a plugin that can add this in.

I have to say that after using this theme for several weeks I have found that the support is simply awe inspiring. The theme worked for me flawlessly out of the box but I have had the need for a few tweaks (and one customization). The theme developer has not only responded quickly, but provided immediate solutions to my needs.

I have been building websites, using content management systems, for the better part of a decade. I would say that I have experience with more than one hundred themes in this time.

Never have I had this level of support. Mike has been amazing!

Thank you for what you do Mike. You are a true breath of fresh air.

You’re welcome. You deserve it! As I continue to build sites with Wordpress, your list of themes will be my first stop for choice.

Hello,

I love the theme, just bought it. One concern I have.

After I click “Load More,” all of the featured images delete and the posts get pretty much smushed. This is what it looks like.http://imgur.com/1cvLOoq

Please help, this issue is pretty severe to my site. Thanks so much.

Hi! Great theme.

Just having some trouble displaying my video-post (with Vimeo lightbox) on my homepage… I have done everything by the book and it shows well on the homepage, but when you press the ‘play’-button it keeps loading forever and doesn’t pop-up. My video is only 2,5 minute so that can not be the issue… For the example check out: www.dehippevegetarier.nl. You can find the post in the third colomn, it is called ‘squats voor de benen’.

Please help me out!

Is there anyway to add “ads” in between the post list in homepage?, I mean like Mashable does. Thanks.

ProgressionStudios
We have an example of advertisements inline in the live preview:
http://bayside.progressionstudios.com

You can either add the advertisements inline like the live preview or in the sidebar like a standard website.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Default-user

Thanks for the answer, a few more questions:

1. The ads are placed randomly or I can define where they’re going to appear?

2. Is there anyway to add another ad above the posts with the width of all the page but the sidebar?

Thanks.

ProgressionStudios

1) Yeah, you can define where the post appears inline with the posts.

2) You can post an advertisement on any category or page at the top. However if you wanted an advertisement on the top of a post, that would require a third party plugin from wordpress.org.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Is there a front-end submission feature in this theme?

ProgressionStudios

This is not a built-in feature however you can look into third party plugins for this functionality. We are using the default post type for posting content.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Loved the theme! Just bought it and currently setting it up. I wish to know whether it’s possible to set up an open to public “post page”, so that anyone could submit the post to the site without any registration?

ProgressionStudios

That should be possible via a third party plugin. Check wordpress.org and codecanyon.net for some plugins that can help you out with that.

Hi, maybe previously asked but could not find…

is it possible to drop the load more button and make it auto load posts when you reach the end of the page?

ProgressionStudios
Yeah, you can easily turn an auto load on. Here is an example of this:

Hi can you tell me if there is a certain size photo to use because some of the photos heads gets chopped off.

ProgressionStudios
The images on the index are not cropped. However the images on the post page are. There are some great discussions on how to change image sizes in our support forums:

HI This is a great theme but I’m having one issue with google adwords. Google have just changed the coding for ads (synchronous to asynchronous?). I cant get these new ads to appear anywhere with the theme, on a page or sidebar.

any ideas or advice.

I bought the theme specifically to use with ads so i really need help in fixing

thanks

ProgressionStudios
Yeah, our theme supports Google Adwords. If you have any questions, feel free to join our support forums and post a link to your website with your question:

Really awesome theme, I want to buy it. can you please tell me, Should I put this left sidebar to right side?

sumitbijvani

Okay no problem, but I don’t want to put any sidebar on Homepage, is it possible?

sumitbijvani

I just want to remove sidebar from homepage and category page, is it possible?

ProgressionStudios
Removing the sidebar form certain pages takes some editing of code. We have directions on how to remove this from the homepage here:
http://support.progressionstudios.com/discussion/3998/hide-sidebar-in-homepage#10

You can apply the same code to the category pages as well if you wanted to remove it from those pages as well. Note: We don’t support customizations so you would have to make these edits on your own.

Question can we make a section of the home page where if a important topic with photo or video take a section of the homepage but still allowing other post below?

ProgressionStudios

You can pull in one or multiple categories into the homepage. If you want to add some featured content, you can do so by adding this in the content area of the homepage. These are the built-in ways to display content on the homepage. You can always edit the homepage.php file as well to add-in a custom query to pull in posts.
