Discussion on Buddy: Multi-purpose WordPress & BuddyPress Theme

Nice theme, I like the layout. Quick question before purchasing (torn between this one and your other one: Bounce).

In your admin panel, I see from the screenshots that there is a styling and css section, how quickly can I change the colours of the page? Is it done through CSS or are there colour wheels to make the selections?

Thanks!

Go to Settings > General and select the allow registration option. BuddyPress creates it’s own registration which is assigned through the plugin, which is why the theme doesn’t handle this page. The support forum should be up and running now, please visit http://ghostpool.com/support

Thanks, I’ve been installing/uninstalling WP so many times that I forgot to enable this option for this install. Maybe you can add that little piece of info to your help.html file so if someone suffers from a brain cramp like I did, the don’t have to DB space by asking questions like this. :)

TGIF . Thanks again.

GhostPool

I will bear that in mind. :)

Does anyone have a link to their site using Buddy? Would be great to see it in action!!!

GhostPool

Hey there,

As soon as buyers send me there examples I’ll post them on the item page. Since the theme has only been released it’s unlikely anyone will any examples to show off just yet.

... also when I create a new group and post an update I get the following message: “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 19456 bytes) in /*/**/wp-content/themes/buddy/lib/admin/inc/wp-show-ids/includes/classes/columns.inc.php on line 45”

note: I started with a clean wp installation I have been following the instructions from the help file precisely…

GhostPool

Hi there,

Fatal error memory errors are not theme related, you need to ask your host to increase you allocated memory.

I happen to resolve the problem with the “Fatal error: Allowed memory size”. All I did was delate the bp sitewide activity plugin. I had problems activating it. After the activation error of I could no longer access the Plugins List in wp dashboard. I followed the instructions in the manual and cant run it properly.

GhostPool

Hi there,

Well the instructions just tell you how to install the plugin (the same for any plugin). Any issues with the plugin are the result of the plugin itself, however I have received your email and will look into the problem for you.

Can we make the contents on the site visible only to logged in members ?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes you can. As with all WordPress themes you can make pages/posts password protected or visible to logged in users. The theme also comes logged in/out shortcodes to display content depending on the user being logged in/out.

Hi,

Love the new theme, exactly what we’re looking for so far.

Q. We purchased and downloaded today but did not get the updated 1.0.1?

Do we need to do something else to update the theme?

Thanks,

GhostPool

Hi there,

The version number was accidentally not updated, however if you downloaded it it today you should still have v1.0.1. :)

WebPlunder

Perfect – Thanks for the quick response, lovin the theme!

We’ll post a link to our site once we’re ready to go live.

GhostPool

Excellent, would love to have an example of what a buyer has done with the theme. :)

A truly epic theme!

I spent the last 6 months building my website focused around news style/magazine but after seeing this… instantly fell in love with it. I’m going to do some pretty crazy hacks to this!

Kudos to you!

GhostPool

Thanks naweedshams. Glad you like it. :)

Thanks tony. :)

Hi! This theme compatible with buddypress 1.7?

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme has not been tested with BuddyPress 1.7 as it is still in development. However by the time it has been officially released the theme will definitely be compatible. :)

There isn’t a section in your support theme for this theme yet. I’m trying to just simply change the footer from saying “Buddy” after Copyright and the “Footer Content” in the theme options isn’t working…

GhostPool

Hi there,

Apologies for that, I have no set up a section for Buddy on the support forums. This is a small theme bug, which will be fixed in the next update shortly. For the solution head over to the support forum and post your question.

Does Buddy handle video blog posts? If YES can we see an example of how it works…as I want to see how it works “responsively”?

I couldnt find an example in your theme template. Maybe you could have made one of the “Post Examples” video … i.e Post Example Video

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes Buddy can handle video blog posts, I’ve set up an example here: http://demo.ghostpool.com/buddy/blog/2012/11/12/post-example-1-2/

Hello there, we really like your theme! I have a couple of questions.

1-We use s2member and jwplayer .. s2member offers special integration with jw player that allows us to embed videos based on membership and download keys ect ect with javascript embeds. We currently use a custom shortcode plugin designed to work with s2member to embed the videos called s2 Video shortcodes written by Philly max. Will our videos stay responsive in your theme as is? Also, are there any customizations we can do to integrate s2member video embedding into your video shortcodes if our videos are not supported in your theme?

2-We also have a couple of custom post types that we have customized to use the gallery/portfolio styling shortcodes to display posts in our current theme. Do you support adding custom post types to your gallery shortcodes?

3- Does your framework offer ways to create page templates within the admin?

4-Does your framework offer custom javascript boxes in the admin?

Default-user

Hey there, so we’ve purchased your theme and you mentioned you’d be able to assist on guiding us on including custom post types in your [posts] shortcodes..

Also, if you can point me in the right direction in customizing video shortcodes to include s2member functionality in terms of template files and or things to look out for. If neccessary, does the person who you refer customization work to be able to do that kind of customization?

GhostPool

I’ll be happy to answer your questions over at the support forum at http://ghostpool.com/support where I offer all my support. The reason for this is that the comments section is not easily searchable by other users.

Yes they certainly would be able to this kind of customisation, you can contact him here: http://www.ghostpool.com/hire-a-developer/

Ok, just did.. Looking forward to speaking to you there.

Hi, awesome theme, im gonna buy it but first i have some quick question,

1) does it support Membership plug in, so i have level access and subscription with coupons (http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/membership/).

2) Does the layout support this plug in: BuddyPress Activity Plus (http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/media-embeds-for-buddypress-activity/).

3) can i change the whole theme to more RED colours?

4) i know you said that its compatible with WooCommerce but u said i must change some lines in the CSS , do you plan to support it by default in the future.

Thanks a lot for your time, and Good Job :)

Regards, Danar

i Bought it :) its awesome theme so flexible… can you show me the styling issues you talked about in regards of using BuddyPress Activity Plus plug in ?

GhostPool

Sure, head over at the support forum at http://ghostpool.com/support where I offer all my support. The reason for this is that the comments section is not easily searchable by other users. :)

still haven’t found the related topics about my question on your support forum, but i figured it out , i am newbie to buddypress. (css or html.)

if there’s also newbie like me , like to change that, u could just add this: to your theme css:

whats-new-textarea textarea { resize:vertical; max-height:450px; min-height:150px; }

your could change the height as your like..

i don’t know if GhostPool mind i post this…

I am learning more. : )

GhostPool

Sure go ahead and post your solution.

If you can’t find your answer on the support forum already, post your own question and I’ll answer it as soon and I can. :)

Hey Ghostpool, if you can add woocomerce support and css so it displays correctly when using woocommerce…it would help a great deal to me when I buy your theme. Can you do this in your next update?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Buddy is already compatible with WooCommerce. :)

smartsites1

Oh Ok, Great!

Thanks for replying, I am buying the theme now

Here’s my take on it http://inspiringpeople.co – So far everyones feedback on twitter is that they absolutely love it! (Round corner borders make a whole lot of difference to a website).

GhostPool

Thanks for sharing with us what you have done with the theme. Really like what you have done with it!
