hi, your theme looks impressive !

... and now some questions please :-)

1. do you offer demo xml data w/images ? 2. mutli-lingual means special support for wpml ? 3. color skins ? can we manage color settings as sets ? 4. in which parts can we define bg images, colors etc. (header, content, footer, sidebars etc.) 5. support for @fontface fonts ? 6. auto-update when new theme version comes up ? 7. visual editor for shortcodes ? 8. featured posts sliders ? 9. filtered portfolios ?

thx !!!

Hello:

1) Yeah, haven’t prepared it yet, but if/when you purchase you can ask for it on the support forums, I’ll make it over to you when it’s done.

2) No need for wpml, the theme handles translation for you with multiple languages.

3) The Color Editor generates a stylesheet you can then save as a totally new color style, selectable via the theme options

4) You can define bg colors & images for Header, Content & Footer

5) The theme supports Google Fonts and via the Theme Options, you can update the fonts list to get the new fonts by Google.

6) The theme has an update server developed specifically for it, which notifies the theme, which in turn notifies you to get the latest version.

7) The theme provides the Layout Editor, which is a Visual Editor to edit the components (which are shortcodes internally).

8 ) The Theme’s Sliders use the Gallery Posts to create the sliders. You have three sliders: Blocked Unique, RefineSlide & Nivo.

P.S.: I’ll make a detailed list of features in a bit, was very sleepy yesterday when doing it.

Regards,
Ernie.-

Thanks Ernie !

2) do you also offer language switcher for languages ? anyway, i suppose we need wpml (or qtranslate…) for posts/pages & menu translation ? 5) @fontface fonts, i assume can be integrated with custom css ? 6) so theme update needs to be done by hand… you know when we have multiple sites/themes this is a pain in the …ss 7) layout editor looks so wonderful ! 8) would be nice to have featured posts in sliders… (u know when a post is new or important…) 9) sometime later maybe we could ask for filtered portfolios :-)

thx & sorry for questions burst… but u know next commenters will have almost everything answered in advance :-)

No worries Tasos, I appreciate the questions since they will answer others.

2) Yes, you can switch the languages to edit, there’s a full list of languages with lots of them for you to translate to. The theme will automatically use the language set in your WordPress environment. The theme provides translations for the text it provides that needs to be translated. Any other translation you may need a plugin yes.

5) Yup, you can add @font-face definitions in the Theme Options correct.

6) Well, the thing is, that theme files can’t be released without envato’s consent, the files you download are in envato’s CDN , so that can’t be done due to envato’s policy.

7) Now I need to keep up with other theme updates, then back with Blocked. I was thinking about it and yes, I’ll add that later on, give me a few days.

9) I should take a rest from development, but I’ll think about it, can’t guarantee anything yet.

do gallery posts (in sliders) have custom links, in order to link them to posts, portfolios etc ? (u know, we usually want to show latest posts/portfolios in home page main slider)

der
der Author

Yes, you can add title, description & custom URLs to Gallery Posts. I’ll work on adding a featured posts slider both for Portfolio & Regular posts.

Still exploring: is the twitter widget part of the layout elements that can be moved around? (for example to the top of the page or under the navigation?

der
der Author

No, twitter scroller at the bottom is part of the footer and can be controlled from the theme options page. It’s pretty cool too, it supports pause on hover, touch events and keyboard navigation :D

In short, everything that scrolls or slides in Blocked, has support for touch events and keyboard movement.

Hi there,

Getting the error

“Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_called_class() in /home/bfloris/public_html/wp-content/themes/blocked/framework/classes/class.widget-framework.php on line 11”

After install (FTP and Wordpress Installer)

Any suggestions?

Hello,

Hmm, this has to do with PHP . Please register on the Support Forums and post this issue there. In the meantime I’ll work on providing you with a workaround while I update.

BTW , This may be due to your PHP version. Let’s follow up on the forums and provide info on which version you’ve got installed.

Regards,
Ernie.-

bfloris11

Alright, I will try with a fresh install first.

der
der Author

A fresh install of the theme won’t help if you have the same PHP version. Don’t worry this isn’t hard to fix and I will code the change right now. Let’s work together in this.

I also have to fix a small issue with IE8 too, due for the next update. The theme might take from 1-2 weeks to be considered stable. Apologies for any errors you may have.

I’ll release updates as soon as I fix any bug spotted.

Same error…

Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_called_class() in /home/tsocial/domains/thomas.gl/public_html/wp-content/themes/blocked/framework/classes/class.widget-framework.php on line 11

Don’t ask us to register for support forums… we shouldn’t have to.

Just update the file to correct the error and advise us of when it is available.

der
der Author

Hey! Not at all! I’m not asking you to register on the forums. I don’t get paid for that! It was just to make it easier for you. If you don’t want to use the forums, it’s ok by me. It’s a resource available to all my customers and I help a lot of people there ;)

Almost done uploading, but here’s a quick fix: To all the files inside includes/widgets/, after the initialize() function, add this:

  static function register() {
    register_widget(__CLASS__);
  }

That’ll do it. Also, I’ll notify when the update is available (currently in the review queue).

I can see the level of detail here and I want to like it but it is just not displaying correctly for me .

- slideshow is not moving - features and portfolio pages are not linked / displaying - accordions and toggles are not toggling open and closed - map is not displaying on contact page

This is on both latest Mac firefox and safari. Is it just me?

der
der Author

Hello, I think there is some sort of connection issue on your computer that is preventing the JavaScript code from being downloaded. I’ve tested on Mac Firefox 13.0 and Safari 5.1.7 and it works fine.

The issues you’ve mentioned present on 2 modern browsers leads me to the conclusion there is some sort of connection problem. Try opening the console both in Firefox and Safari to see what is not downloading.

Fixed the links in the live preview, thanks for reporting this.

Clear your browser’s cache and/or try on another computer/device, it works.

your layout editor ROCKS !

but demo video in running toooooooooo fast…

der

Haha… had to speed it up a little to make it on youtube. Thanks for the suggestion, Ill fix it tomorrow…

tasoskouk

your layout editor seems so magical, it’ s the best layout editor i’ve seen… and i’ve almost checked them all ;-)

you should build a wp plugin for posts editing (like ether plugin and visual composer) and your modules would replace those weird shortcodes… that would be fairly easy for you and would be a hit

der
der Author

Wow, thanks so much for those compliments, seems like all that hard work is really paying off! Your feedback is very much appreciated :)

As per the plugin, I’ll think about it…

does gallery manager support multiple upload either from media manager or file system ? thx

der
der Author

It uses the wp media manager upload, so it supports both.

tasoskouk

so after wp media manager multiple upload, we have to choose gallery images one-by-one w/o mutliple selection… (this is what i mean)

der

I’ll see how to improve this in the future, had that in mind but had to release a first version.

If the layout editor doesn’t work, there might be a plugin breaking the JavaScript in your WordPress admin. Try disabling all plugins and enabling them one by one to see which one is breaking the functionality.

If you can’t get it to work, please register in the Support Forums and post a new discussion with your issue details, we’ll follow up from there.

Hello. I would need to inspect your site to see what’s going on, and if it’s a problem with the theme, I’ll fix it.

Please register on the support forums (is free) and create a new discussion with your issue. Then, send me a private message on the Support Forums and include temporary admin credentials to your site (as well as its url), I’ll have a look.

Looking forward to helping you out.

Can the logo be centered top, and the menu under centered too, via Admin panel?

Best regards,

der
der Author

Hello. The logo can only be aligned left/right for now.

I’ve thought about this feature, but didn’t include it in the first release since it would require some hackery to achieve.

I’ll consider adding this in the future, for now I’m focusing on fixing bugs and making the theme as stable as possible.

What is the best way to upgrade to the newest version of this theme? Download the entire theme and upload? It will keep my custom css right?

Thanks.

der

Yes… the ones you set on the color editor yust re-save to get the styles. Check out the Faq at the forums, this topic is covered.

Remove the old one, then re upload.
