@infotechd Read the help guide – very useful indeed.

it is hard to manage two logins. Authors should push themeforest for a better support module.

Believe me we have and they’ve told us it’s in the pipe line, that was over a year ago.

You will have to add the short code, depending on the style you want for your image. So you just upload it as normal, copy the path to your image, insert the code using the GP dropdown in the text editor and past your image path.

I havent found any other way yet

Hi,

I’ve been browsing these themes and have a question. Is there a way for users to be able to contact one another privately? The way my site is going to work will require users to be able to do that and I can’t seem to see how that will be possible. Something similar to the way people on craigslist do it. Or perhaps even a dating site.

Thanks, Jeremy

Hi there,

Yes the BuddyPress plugin allows users to private message each other. :)

I purchased Bounce in the middle of March, before the BuddyPress addition to the theme… I installed BuddyPress back then and had some issues… now I see you have incorporated it into the theme…

Can I upgrade to the new BuddyPress version from my v1.2 of Bounce? Also, have you done away with the PayPal feature?

GhostPool

Hi there,

You can upgrade to the BuddyPress version, which works in exactly the same way as the non-BuddyPress version, however you will need to buy the BuddyPress version for the full price unfortunately.

I’m not sure what you’re referring to by the PayPal feature – Bounce never had such a feature. Are you referring to the payment options on ThemeForest, if so I do not run the site I just sell themes here so I have no control over it. However I can say the site still accepts PayPal payments.

Hi, I was thinking about purchasing this theme. Ok what I need my site to be able to do is connect people privately through email, instant messages, whatever.Maybe similar to the way craigslist does or possibly a dating site. Will this theme allow me to do that? And also would I need to install this theme as well as buddypress together?

Thanks, Jeremy

GhostPool

Hi there,

I already answered your first question, so I’ll just repeat what I said before. Yes the BuddyPress plugin allows users to private message each other.

You just need to activate BuddyPress after installing the theme.

Do you offer a service to install and setup this theme if I were to give you my FTP credentials?

GhostPool

Hi there,

I do not offer this service as such since it’s such an easy process that is explained in the theme help file – you don’t have to use an FTP client, you can upload it through WordPress. However if you run into trouble I will do it for you. :)

Hi I am trying to review this theme on a iphone but it doesnt seem to display responsive features? Am I doing something wrong?

Cheers Gavin

GhostPool

Hi there,

Are you using an iPhone 4/4s or 3GS? In both cases the theme should be responsive – do you see the computer layout on your phone instead of the mobile layout?

@gd0g

You need to remove the black frame at the top of the page. The theme will then reload and be responsive.

I’ve been debating this theme for weeks now, as it fits my requirements, but only to a degree. A short while back I had asked if you can make Score responsive, or add the review feature to Bounce, in an effort to combine the best of both worlds. You didn’t respond to that, so I’d just like to mention that once more.

More importantly, though, I notice that, while this theme is indeed responsive, some content does not look proper when viewing on a mobile device. Any activity becomes extremely squished due to what seems like excessive margins, and possibly my biggest concern is the forum (both versions). The labels as well as counts and recent poster data all seem to overlap each other to the point of being sloppy and illegible. Is there a fix in the works, or some code change to get rid of the forum aspects that don’t fit well when scaled down? Obviously this is how the forums look when installed, but the whole point of a responsive theme is to resolve scaling issues on mobile platforms.

Thanks in advance.

GhostPool

Hi there,

I’m sorry I missed your question about combining Bounce and Score. Both combinations are possible, however it would be much easier to make Score responsive rather than integrate the review system into Bounce. You would need to hire a developer to do both of these though, unless your comfortable with CSS .

When you say the activity becomes squished are you specifically referring to the BuddyPress activity pages? If so I personally do not think they look squished but I can show you how to easily reduce the padding/margins around the page to give more space if you decide to purchase the theme. :)

I will be making adjustments to the forum pages for mobile displays in the next theme update.

Default-user

Thanks for the response. Do you have anybody you could refer me to that could specifically make Score fully responsive and do it properly? I’m okay with CSS , but haven’t the slightest clue how to make a buddypress theme responsive. This is REALLY important to me. Bounce is perfect, but I need something flashier. Score fits the bill, but needs to be responsive, ha.

The activity is mainly longer activity status updates on mobile phones become very narrow and squished.

The forum thing is also very important for me. I can’t really go live with my site unless the forums look correct.

Thanks.

Default-user

Oh, and one more thing. The “buddybar” doesn’t work properly at all on mobile devices. There are strange hover and click properties on touchscreens, and you haven’t properly accommodated for them on this theme. If you click My Account, for example, you don’t get the drop-down menu, it just takes you directly to My Account. This makes the navigation bar fairly useless…

GhostPool

I refer people to a few developers. You can contact one of these developers from http://www.ghostpool.com/hire-a-developer. If you do not get a response from them you will have to look elsewhere e.g. http://wpquestions.com or http://freelanceswitch.com.

I’ve now updated the forum display on mobile devices – take a look.

The buddybar works just for me on my iPhone, I can click My Account and access the drop down menu. Are you using an Android phone, as this operates with drop downs differently?

I’m almost fully made me decision to buy this theme but just had one more question.

Does it come with the ability to change the header fonts? and/or does it use google fonts?

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme doesn’t come with header font options, but yes it uses Google fonts to make changing the fonts very easy. You can add/insert your Google fonts from the Theme Options so you don’t need to edit files.

Is there many home page layout options, particularly as I want to feed news in from various bloggers (like a news/magazine theme) but also hjave all the cool features of your site)

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme comes with several homepage examples on the demo site at http://ghostpool.com/wordpress/bounce/pages/example-homepages/ (with code provided). Homepaged are created using shortcodes so you can create your own unique arrangement, there are no predefined homepage templates.

Please note although the theme was designed to work with BuddyPress and bbPress out of the box, I did not create either of these plugins and have no advanced knowledge about them. Unfortunately due to the huge amount of support questions I have to answer each day regarding my own themes I cannot really spend time answering questions about external plugins unless there is a conflict with the theme in some way (in which case I will offer a bug fix). You should direct any general BuddyPress or bbPress related questions to http://buddypress.org/support/topics or http://bbpress.org/forums.

Contact form is working fine except it is sending emails on my email address which shows “via sg2nlhg027.shr.prod.sin2.secureserver.net.” I want it to show via ‘Attaris.com’. So that I come to know from which one of my sites I got that email.

Thanks
