Hello GhostPool,

Just want to let you know that this is my second Bounce Wordpress & Buddypress theme I purchased. What initially attracted me was the dark blue color theme. It was perfect for one of my sites as my brand colors are dark blue, light green, and white.

I did extensive research before purchasing my first Bounce theme with all the other themes out there. Reading the comments people left on all the competitor themes really helped me in making my decision. Not only is the Bounce theme well designed, it’s also stable. Everything works. Key features that I wanted were a good design, Buddpress compatibility, and the responsive feature, which works on all my mobile devices. Tested it and works beautifully on my phone and tablet. Been developing my sites for the last few days and I absolutely love this theme. Learning how to use and implement all the provided shortcodes is the feature I like the most. Let’s me customize my site so it doesn’t look like everyone else’s.

I was tempted to purchase a different theme from a different author who had a few thousand sales, but after reading the comments on their themes, they had either technical issues or bad customer support, and the killer was their theme didn’t have the responsive feature which I think is important since the majority of people nowdays are viewing websites on their mobile devices. At the time of this writing, your theme has 598 sales. I’m really surprised it’s not up in the five, six, or seven thousand sales range. Anyway, I hope my purchasing your theme twice at least says something for anyone out there wanting to buy this theme.

Skill wise, I think one has to have at least an intermediate level of knowledge with Wordpress to take advantage of the full feautures of this theme. The only issues I’ve had so far dealt with the Buddypress capabilities, which this theme is not responsible for.

Anyway, I love your work. I will definitely make my third Wordpress/Buddypress theme purchase from Ghostpool. My closing question is do you currently have any further Buddypress themes in the works? If so, when will they be available to purchase?

GhostPool

Thank you for such a nice comment I really appreciate it and I’ll certainly be adding it to the item page. :)

Just wanted to say, this is a great theme.

I’ve used it a few times and it’s really flexible.

Coupled with fantastic support you can’t go wrong!

as you know – loving the Bounce theme …. quick Q, if i wanted to replace the slider with Revolution Slider, (i have the plugin) it should be possible to have full width slider on homepage?

GhostPool

Hi there,

I would imagine so, but I’ve never tested it with the plugin so can’t say for sure.

does this site work with WP Job Manager, S2, and Gravity Forms?

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme has not been tested with these plugins, but I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t work with the theme.

how add excerpt length in activity ?

[activity per_page="3" comments="threaded"  order="desc" pagination="true"]
GhostPool

Hi there,

This cannot be controlled from the [activity] shortcode. For further support, please post any support questions at http://ghostpool.ticksy.com

Sorry for the inconvenience but we do point this out in the help file, item page and your theme options page.

Could Visual Composer WpBakery be used with Bounce without any conflicts?

GhostPool

Hi there,

I don’t see any reason why there would be any conflicts.

GhostPool

Hi there,

This is not a built in feature, but if you choose to use the BuddyPress plugin with this theme, this feature comes with it.

Please, I want to ask you key questions, please provide honest answers.

1) Does your Theme work perfectly well on IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Chrome, Firefox,and Mobiles etc ?

2)Is your Theme responsive

3) A developer said is not responsive and it doesn’t work well on IE7 and IE8

Please provide your view

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) The theme works great in all the aforementioned browsers, except IE7. It has not yet been fully tested in IE10 but I don’t think there’s any issues with it.

2) Yes the theme is responsive as it says on the item page.

3) Which developer said this? The theme is fully responsive and works in IE8. The theme has not been tested with IE7, most theme’s are not longer compatible with this browser.

Hi,

I would like to know if your theme it’s compatible with the WPML plugin.

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

I have tested the theme with WPML in the past and it was working at the time. I cannot guarantee it will work with the latest version of WPML but I do not see why it would not.

Hi there GhostPool,

I really love your theme and know I’m in good hands ‘cos you’ve got a great mind for support.

I’ve got a few pre-purchase questions please.

1) All I need is a theme that can function like behance (http://www.behance.net/). I want my users to be able to create portfolios/projects that include descriptions and possibly a link to a cart system for people to purchase any of the displayed items

2)I’d like the homepage to be predominantly populated by these projects. I’d like for it to be the first thing visitors see when they come.

Are these possible with your theme?

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

Bounce is not a portfolio theme and doesn’t offer the specific features you want. You’ll also need to use the WooCommerce plugin with this theme to add cart functionality.

Default-user

Thanks. I still bought it though

Does the regular license support the use of paid membership? I’m using the WPMU Dev membership plugin and will have both free and paid subscription memberships.

Thanks.

GhostPool

Hi there,

The regular license allows you to use the theme on one website, the type of plugins you use have nothing to do with this. :)

Default-user

I understand that. My question is does the regular license prohibit the charging of people to use the site? I wasn’t sure if that constituted an end product.

GhostPool

That’s absolutely the fine. As I say the license allows you to use the site for any commercial purposes, it just has to on the one ste. The moment you use in on two sites, you need to buy another license or buy an extended license.

Before buy : can I change the top panel height ?

GhostPool

Hi there,

There’s no options to change the panel height, but this can easily be done by a small CSS change which I can show you if you decide to purchase the theme (post your question on the support site at http://ghostpool.ticksy.com).

Pre-sale questions : 1. can login be suppress at the head of the page ? 2. in buddypress mode ( the mode I need ) does the portfolio works, and if, can every memeber create there own? 3. can Bounce work with Paid Memberships Pro ?

Thank you very much

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) If you’re asking can you hide the login/register links in the header, yes you can.

2) If you’re referring to the portfolio [posts] shortcode this has no connection to BuddyPress. Shortcodes cannot be used within the BuddyPress activity stream.

3) I would assume so, but I have not tested the theme with this plugin.

First I want to say you have an amazing theme you guys have but together a master piece. “Picasso”

Ok this is our first time looking into buddy press so please take it easy on u lol and excuse our ignorance AHEAD of time lol. I just have 2 simple questions.

1.) Is it possible to display a member’s profile as an entire page so the member can have an entire page as a profile?

2.) Does this theme allow members to add say live streams to their profiles so they can be viewed by the public? Or what would be the best way to incorporate that?

Thank you for your time, also we appreciate your advice and hold it in the highest esteem.

Jai_nos

You know what @Imreadyformycloseup, just might have sold me on you guys. What a great article about you guys. I am duly impressed.

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Yes this is automatic if you install the BuddyPress plugin.

2) BuddyPress profiles show a live stream of the users activities, including posts made, comments made, friendships etc.

What article are you referring to jaynm26, I would love to see it.

Jai_nos

No I mean RTMP Live Stream Video can they add live stream video to their profile

And this article…

I’m not sure jay, you’ll need to ask BuddyPress this question since the user profile is generated by the BuddyPress plugin not the theme.
