Hello three. I would like to use this for a company intranet. Is there a way to make anything that says “Member/Members” show as “Employee/Employees”?

Thanks!

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes you will need to edit the BuddyPress plugin translation file to change this text.

Presale Question:

I love your theme but have one very important question. I want to show the sub-forums in a nicely displayed fashion on one single page. Is this possible with your theme?

Here is my example: http://demo.herothemes.com/socialbuddy/forums/

I know BBPress allows sub-forums, but how will that display with your theme?

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme uses the standard bbPress sub forum display, (sub forum links below the main forum link). The sub forums do not look like the one’s seen at that link.

There is some code to hide admin activity in “Latest Activity” shorcode?

If you haven’t done so already please submit your support questions at http://ghostpool.ticksy.com where I will answer them shortly. :)

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

Great looking script… Are there any options or solutions to add “Login with Facebook”..?

Default-user

Also, anything for events?

GhostPool

Hi there,

You’ll need to use plugins for both of these things. Take at look through the plugins directory: https://wordpress.org/plugins/

Good news & THANKS for your prompt reply!

Pre-Purchase question.

Can a newly registred member create a new group and edit it on the front-end? (not in WP dashboard)

If you can’t is there a way to lock the other dashboard buttons so the user only can create the groups?

GhostPool

Hi there,

BuddyPress does allow newly register members to create groups from the front-end and edit them.

Hi, I think to buy this theme. And I have got several really important questions.

1. My project is about to show the members their business cards. Is this possible with Buddypress ?

2. If possible can I show business cards of members in the members page as first tab ? (so Business Cards – Profile – Activity…)

3. There is a latest activity and latest post in the homepage. I want to show uploaded images (business cards) in that area ? Is this possible with either customisation or theme options ?

4. Instead of features (in homepage) can I show another widget like featured members ? So can I edit homepage design ?

Thanks.

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) BuddyPress doesn’t have a business card feature as far as I know, so you may need to customize this or a find a plugin that adds this feature. However I would suggest asking BuddyPress about this for a more accurate answer.

2) See 1).

3) It’s definitely possible with customisations, but the theme doesn’t offer this feature.

4) Yes. The homepage can be fully customized so you can display the BuddyPress Member widget in the centre of the homepage instead.

Hi, I’ve purchased the theme and so far I think it’s really great. One issue that I’m having is the slider on the main home page. When given the URL – It seems to be playing youtube videos finely, but any ‘Vimeo’ URL doesn’t seem to play on the slider and keeps giving me the error “The embed code for this video is not valid.” Has anyone else had this problem?

GhostPool

Hi there,

I’ve addressed your question on the support site. :)

Does this theme come with a child theme. If not can you create a child theme for me to download after purchasing this theme..

- Is there a Custom CSS area in this theme to paste css code. These two things are important to my client.

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Yes the theme comes with a child theme.

2) Yes it comes with a custom CSS area to paste your CSS code.

Hope that answers your questions. :)

hello . i like your theme . and i have some questions. i want to start a learning website, that teach Arabic’s people English language . so are this theme work with Arabic language. and Can I make a special (privacy) page for members only ? and thank you .

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes the theme will work with the Arabic language.

You can password protect pages, but to automatically hide pages for members you’ll need to use a plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-members

Hello, I like your Buddy theme, I come from Chinese, I use the version is 1.17.1 (Version 1.17.1 (15-Sep-14) I encountered the following 2 questions (Bug):
1 when I first finished installing Buddy theme, the use of buddypress under the Activity: session, the following will appear at the same time, two of the same content, that is to say to the database to write data two times;
2 when a new registered users visit the site, users cannot visit the forums, it shows 404 errors, the administrator must manually grant user roles (participants), new registered users can normal visit!

Hey, quick question

Do you have a login i can test for the demo?

Also has this got the private messaging system?

GhostPool

Hi there,

For security reasons I do not have a test demo unfortunately.

The BuddyPress plugin which this theme supports includes a PM system.

Hey there,

I just purchased this great theme of yours and I would like to upload it to a local server using MAMP. I tried copying the “buddy” folder into htdocs but that somehow does not work. I’m no web developer expert at all. So my question is: Can i upload the theme to localhost using mamp or do i need to use an ftp client to upload the files to a domaine?
