How do I install this on Wordpress?

There is no “Installable Wordpress file”?

KennyWilliams

Hi Jonas, this is not a Wordpress theme. It’s straight html5 mate.

Default-user

Damn. Ok. Can I have the money back to purchase a Wordpress theme instead then?

KennyWilliams

Hi Jonas, sorry I have no control over refunds, you need to go through Envato Support for this

Pre-sales question: Is it possible to make the sample pages available as text rather than pop-up images? I’d like to be able to offer readable samples that, first and foremost, will be readable by search engine robots for SEO purposes, and, second, will resize and reflow at different resolutions. Is this beyond the scope of this template? If so, would you consider adding this function?

KennyWilliams

Hi, the modal windows support ajax page (text pages) aswell as images. So yes to your question.

Very nice template and clean code, very easy to work with. But two things:

1) I don’t understand how to make the sample pages come up as text rather than pop-up images. I am not an advanced coder and have no idea how to set up AJAX pages. Can you please provide instructions?

2) I want to add a photo of the author in the “About the author” section. Would you mind giving me a quick idea of how to insert code into the CSS file so that the photo is retina-compatible? I’m all at sea in this regard. May I also suggest that you make this a standard feature in the template? Most book shoppers want to see a picture of the author.

Thanks!

KennyWilliams

Hi, In regards to retina images in the author section, do the following.

  1. Add your image to the about author column, I suggest under the title about the author,
  2. Update the main.css file, specifically find the “img” property and add “max-width: 100%;” to it.

That should take care of that. Now If you want sample text pages to show here is how:

  1. Create a html page for each sample text page you want to show
  2. In the page thumbs, change the url to the new text.html page you created instead of the image url : href=”text.html”
  3. Update the classes on same link to be “various fancybox.ajax fancybox mosaic-overlay”

Doing the above will allow you to open html pages in your pop up modal window. You may also want to restrict the size of the new windows also, in which case add the following to the main.js file, making sure you overwrite the old fancybox

// Fancybox.js
$('.fancybox').fancybox();
$(".various").fancybox({
        maxWidth    : 1200,
        maxHeight    : 800,
        fitToView    : true,
        width        : '94%',
        height        : '94%',
        autoSize    : true,
        closeClick    : false,
        openEffect    : 'none',
        closeEffect    : 'none'
 });

Everything works beautifully! Thank you for your prompt and helpful support and for an excellent theme.

Default-user

Oops, spoke too soon. One last support request: Calling up articles instead of images works fine. But I want the viewer to be able to read a full article, which means they have to scroll down in the popup window. However, the fancybox overlay blocks the scroll bar, and clicking advances to the next sample article. How to disable the fancybox overlay, yet still make the pop-up text window work?

Default-user

Or make the actual overlay about 25 pixels narrower, so the user has access to the scroll bar, but can still click in the centre of the popup to move to the next item? Sorry for the nitpicky requests, but again, it seems that text excerpts would be a welcome standard function of this template.

KennyWilliams

Hi, can you send me your URL. The modal should have a working scroll bar on the right allowing you to put overflow content in the modal.

Default-user

URL sent by private message. Thanks.

Hello, Just wondering if the PSD source that comes with this template includes the book covers? Thanks in advance.

KennyWilliams

Hello, Is it possible to change the “blue paperback book” pic by a “ipad or tablet” pic.

I mean, the template is for ebooks ^^ ?

KennyWilliams

Yes, the books are on separate layers. SO you could easily not use one book and use a device if you wish.

Hi. I just bought this and I don’t see the file to make the book covers. Where is it, and what is it called? I unzipped the download file, and the only PSD file in there is for the whole template, booker_retina.psd. I bought this primarily for the book cover template. Thanks.

KennyWilliams

Yep, the book covers are part of the booker_retina.psd

Hey Kenny how I can deactivate the responsive option in the booker theme?

Default-user

Please answer me asap. Thanks

KennyWilliams

So Sorry for the delay. In your css change wrapper from 90% to 1100px

.wrapper{ width: 1100px; }

Then on line 481 delete all the Media Queries.

Default-user

Thanks. All the wrapper in file main.css?

Default-user

Done. one more question. By accessing the page from iphone or ipad on unresponsived page, happens that you can not zoom in or zoom out but the zoom is fixed. Is possible to use the non-responsive page but with zoom functionality enabled?

KennyWilliams
In your HTML, remove the following:
<meta content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no" name="viewport">

A few questions:

1) There is no defined area to include important metadata, such as ISBN numbers, LCCN numbers, file size, book dimensions (because we are selling both print and eBook formats), weight, etc. This is very standard information, and it would nice if there was a specific slot for this.

2) The lack of a specific spot to place the author photo is poor planning. This is a book- specific landing page, and it should include predefined areas for all necessary book-specific information, including the author photo.

3) No social media links. Seriously?!!!

4) No sign-up form area. Seriously?!!!

5) On the plus side, the book cover .psb file is fantastic.

But this is going to require major design changes to be really useful. Right now, I want to get rid of the useless preview area and replace it with a sign-up form. Why in the world would a serious marketer want to give away free samples without at least collecting an email address or a Facebook page “like” or something in return?

How can I safely ditch the area with the preview nonsense and drop in some javascript form code without messing up the text area on the right? What code sections do I need to purge?

I appreciate your assistance and look forward to seeing an updated version of this that is truly useful for the book market.

Thanks.

So you know what I’m talking about in Item #1 above, here is what is on every Amazon.com book page:

Product Details Paperback: 176 pages Publisher: Barking Rain Press; First edition (July 18, 2013) Language: English ISBN-10: 1935460625 ISBN-13: 978-1935460626 Product Dimensions: 0.4×5.4×8.4 inches Shipping Weight: 8.8 ounces

There doesn’t have to fields or anything like that—just a CSS styled area for these important details. Many customers (like teachers) get discounts at certain stores, so I want to give them all the information they will need to place the order wherever they want to. Sure, it’s nice to take a sale off our website, but I’ll take a sale anyway I can get it.

Is it possible to add this landing page into an existing wordpress site?

KennyWilliams

You could have it as a landing page for a WordPress site. Integrating it into the CMS functionality whilst is possible would involve alot of custom coding for a single page.
