hello i want to know if the members can upload videos ( with a pre-aprove from the administration) and if they can send message to each other.

thanks a lot

GhostPool

Hi there,

If you use the BuddyPress plugin that allows members to send messages to each other and they can upload videos via their status updates using the BuddyPress Activity Plus plugin but there’s no admin approval as far as I know.

Hi Author

I am thinking to buy your theme but before that can u give me few list of sites using this software. It is seo friendly?.

is there extra plugins i will have to buy?

it will very much if i could see the admin access of the theme

Thank you in advance Srini

GhostPool

Hi there,

There’s a few examples of sites using it on the item page. http://www.skyforgelabs.com/ and https://gottasalsa.com/

Yes the theme is SEO friendly.

No you do not need to bug any plugins. The theme obviously uses the BuddyPress plugin for the social features but this is free.

You can see some of the screenshots here: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/3506362-buddy-multipurpose-wordpress-buddypress-theme?url_name=buddy-multipurpose-wordpress-buddypress-theme

Hello, love the theme, but can’t seem to get the slider to scroll automatically from slide to slide. Can’t find any settings to control this either. Could you point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Have questions, before I purchase the theme:

1. Can the user submit a topic and attach pictures / videos on it without going to the wordpress admin panel?

2. If they can, are there any set limits on the number of attachments and their sizes?

3. Is there a built-in photo gallery plugin to view those pictures?

Thanks.

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Not by default. You’ll need to use the BuddyPress and Sitewide Activity Plus plugins which allows users to posts comment/status updates and attach media. This is not full front-end posting though, you’ll need to use a plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-user-frontend/ for that.

2) It depends on the plugin, but I don’t know the answer to that.

3) The theme comes with a lightbox gallery feature and supports the standard [gallery] shortcode.

I install the theme but after I install the plugins my site crash to down. I can only delete the plugins folder to make the site back. Please help with this issue. Url: malaihutong.com

Hi there,

If you’re having trouble translating bbPress and BuddyPress you should contact their support sites as this doesn’t really relate to the theme. :)

Hello! I want to use this theme with rtMedia. Is that possible?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes, other users have used this plugin with the Buddy theme.

i can not download this again? why? said it reach download limit… i have never known there’s a limitation, i have no idea how many times i have downloaded this, cuz, every time i downloaded it, never saved the original download, just make some changes on some files, and i didn’t do backup on files, when i need a original copy , i downloaded again…

and has this theme updated lately?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Envato impose a download limit on files – it’s not something I did and is out of my control. You’ll need to contact Envato about this and they should be able to increase/remove the limit.

Hello:

Good morning my name is Ricardo Triana, I´m a front end developer and web/mobile designer. Im looking to purchase a template for my startup company. What Im looking for is:

-User registration/sign up -User can edit their profile (avatar image and data) and publish. Profile can be viewed by all registered and not registered users. -User geolocation. Can user have a geolocation option when creating profeile. -Advanced search app -Responsive and extremely mobile friendly -Chat aplication or some kind of comment aplication so users can interact in a private/public manner. -User can create a post/page with custom fields, and will only be published after admin authorization. This post/page can be tagged so that it can be easily found by a user when using this tags as search filters. -User can create and share a post/page with custom fields that will only be viewed by certain users. User should be able to associate this post/page with a certain user that is registered in the site.

I know these might look like a bit too much, but it is my best option, i need some kind of minimum viable product to be online in a few weeks, that is why Im taking the template option as my last resource. And I know that some of these functionalities can be achieved with plugins and son on. But Id really like to know if plugins can be installed without any trouble and that your template will be able to install these plugins with no conflict.

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you guys can help me out.

Regards

RICARDO TRIANA

Chris GhostPool, thanks for your reply! Do you think you can give me access to a username and password so I can check out the functionalities of your demo?

Regards!

Default-user

Hey! The template looks good, i justa have a few questions before I make my decision:

1. Can I have users rating other user? 2. Can a user comment on another user´s profile? 3. cAn the user create posts that can be monitored and published by the admin. 4. Of Im not 100% satisfied will I get my momney back?

Thank for yout time, and sorry for all the trouble.

Regards,

RICARDO TRIANA

Unfortunately I cannot currently provide admin access to the demos due to security reasons. All the theme functions are listed on the item page and if you have anymore questions I’ll be happy to answer them.

1) The theme does not offer user ratings, you’ll need to find a plugin that does this.

2) Yes using BuddyPress.

3) Already answered this before, the theme does not offer this feature. You’ll need to use a plugin like Gravity Forms.

4) You will need to contact Envato (not me) if you want a refund. Refunds are generally only offered if the theme is broken or not as advertised.

Hey,

Nice theme, is there an HTML only version of your theme? If not will you be able to design one? I don’t mind paying additionally for the efforts. I wanted a metro layout / metro UI on the profile page and the activity page please?

GhostPool

Hi there,

There’s no HTML version, but this is certainly something we can do for you. If you’re interested you can contact Bryce who handles all the customization work for my customers. Just let him know you want a HTML verison of the Buddy theme by filling out the following contact form to get a quote from him: http://www.ourwebmedia.com/ghostpool.php?aff=002

Default-user

Hey, Thank You for your reply! Checking with Bryce now..

Hey,

Nice theme, I think its got a lot of scope for modifications that I would like to make to the theme, however I was looking for an HTML only version, do you have an HTML only version of this theme?

GhostPool

Hi there,

I don’t have a HTML version but we could certainly create one for you. If you’re interested fill out the following contact form to get a quote from us: http://www.ourwebmedia.com/ghostpool.php?aff=002

Hi, I have created private ticket on your support website yesterday about “Buddy” theme, but I can’t find it on my account, also I have not received any confirmation on my registered email. Does it mean that this ticket has gone lost (unfortunately I did not write down it’s ID)? Should I have received the confirmation or status update on my email?

Default-user

I managed to re-submit my ticket and now I can see it on my user profile, so that’s good. No email notification though :( I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

GhostPool

Hi there,

You’ll only receive an email notification once you receive a reply to your ticket as far as I know. Heading over to answer all the tickets now. :)

Hi, Your german translation was outdated, so I’ve updated it ;) Feel free to use it for your theme :) http://shatter-box.com/translations/?wpfb_s=Ghostpool

Hi, Buddy has Turkish language support?

GhostPool

Yes it does and yes you can. :)

Default-user

Thanks, I love this theme. I bought and I’m working new website :)

GhostPool

Excellent. :D

Hi,

I am thinking about buying this plugin, but have two question. I am planning on making a free-membership site and integrating buddypress.

Will I need to use a complementary membership plugin or does the theme come with the features for me to host a simple free-membership site?

Also, does the theme offer a redirect upon login for members? I would like to make a nice landing page advertising the site and members would login there and be directed to a member homepage.

Please let me know when you get a chance.

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme does not come with membership features, you’ll need to use a plugin such as s2 Member for this.

The login page redirects to the page you came from, but you can customize this with a small code change to go to any page you want.

Is it possible to replace the “buddy” logo in the header with my own logo?

Default-user

Never mind, I got it.

GhostPool,

1. Do you have documentation either written or video of how to set up Buddy or how to customize the site?

2. Are users only able to log in using their wordpress log in or can users log in using an email/password or facebook/twitter account?

3. Do you have demo login info to see how site works?

Thanks!!!

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Yes the theme comes with written documentation that explains how to set up all parts of the site, it also includes some basic help on customizing the theme.

2) Yes. You will need to use a plugin to allow users to login through Facebook or Twitter.

3) Unfortunately I cannot provide login access for security reasons.
