When I disable friends in buddypress I get a fatal error on profile pages. Is this a bug or is there something wrong with my install?

A Great Theme


Planning to purchase !
But I Wanna ask you that
  • Does your theme support user registration support?
  • Does it support random advertisements rotation?
  • Can any registered member update images along with text on his/her Post?
  • Can i set to display random advertisements on registered members page?
GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Yes, it supports user registration – as does any WordPress theme.

2) No, you will need to use a plugin or script to rotate ads.

3) If the user has permissions to create posts, they can then edit the text and images for this post.

4) Again you would need a plugin to display random advertisements. You can then display them in the sidebar so they so on member pages.

There is a rather annoying bug with comments.

1. Avatars for logged in users don’t show. It shows only the default avatar.

2. The smileys then cover the avatar, because they have an absolute position.

comments ol.commentlist li img {

border-radius: 4px 4px 4px 4px; float: left; height: auto; left: 0; line-height: 1; margin: 0; position: absolute; top: 0; width: 32px; }

The avatar should be given a class to position it, otherwise it causes all of the images in the list to also take on this property.

I can fix the smiley issue myself most likely. But I’m not a programmer, so dont know how to fix the avatar not displaying. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi there,

The avatar issue was fixed in the last theme update. To update the theme please refer to the help file.

Hi, I have purchased the theme and set it up OK, I’m not familiar with Buddy Press and I realise that you cannot support this plug-in but this might seem a bit obvious, where is the registration form on your demo site for new members?

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

The registration page is disabled on the demo site as I do not want a ton of registered users on my demo manipulating content.

This is a great looking theme. However, I could not get videos to working using a new Galaxy III android phone. only one that worked was Vimeo. YouTube also did not work. I also got rid of the frame in the demo.

Can you tell me is there an easily way to change the header color.

I seen in your docs that you have to use Custom.css to mod colors on background and other areas. Really been nice if you had built custom controls into the theme like I have seen others do.

This is a good looking buddypress theme however, hard to find a good BP theme.

Zorro…..

Hate to ask so many pre sales questions but I just got burned on a BP them I purchased and over two weeks and no support from this other theme builder. Not here on this site as I have always had good service here. am not sure I am seeing the screenshots you are referring to. I looked through all the demo and only seen mostly font style changes. It would be nice if you get the Android issue resolved as that is the larger side of the smartphone market.

zorro65

Thanks for the response. Not sure how I missed those.

Oh one more question is it possible to use a fancier author box

GhostPool

If you change the styling of the author box to what you want, of course it’s possible. :)

zorro65

My mistake for not being more clear, I was talking more along the lines if I wanted to use a different plugin for author box could I instead of yours. Also, is there an easy way to create a landing page for the them without menus and side nave. I need landing page ability but with theme look

GhostPool

It all depends on the plugin but yes I don’t see any reason why you can’t insert a plugin in place of the existing author box.

You can create a landing page without a sidebar, if you also want to remove the menu this can be done with a small code change which I can show you if you decide to purchase the theme.

Hi !,

thanks for your previous replies.

Doees your theme provides with full documentation as shown in the demo
And do you provide us sample data.

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes the theme comes with full documentation and sample data. :)

I just noticed BuddyPress release a new version Version 1.6 yesterday. Do you know if your theme will work with it?

GhostPool

Yes the theme is completely compatible with the latest buddypress release. :)

zorro65

Thanks good job:-)

I hate to ask you so many questions but the last theme I just bought for BP I spent a lot of time researching to get most of what I wanted and the guy has not responded now to me or others in his support forum for two weeks. So I don’t want my project on that theme despite how much I like it.

1. Will the side widget support sub categories too?

2. Do you offer or will your theme work with a third-party responsive Mega-menu?

3. Will your YouTube Videos have SEO ability when placed into the site with your player? If not will your theme work with Yoast SEO and possibly video part with with Yoast VIDEO SEO http://yoast.com/change-of-pricing-licensing-for-video-seo-plugin/ ?

4. Will it work with Cube Points such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cubepoints-buddypress-integration/

5. I noticed in this customer site demo there is a Verified User ICON is this a buddypress feature or a plugin that I can get? Also seen it for someone that was an editor http://inspiringpeople.co/members/arfah/

My only other thoughts are it would have been nice if you could have somehow designed nicely into your header without taking away needed space and also without messing up SEO as its being toward the top for social Icons.

GhostPool

Hi there,

lastpost has answered most of your questions. I’ll add the following:

3) The theme works with Yoast, but it’s not been tested with video extension, however I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

lastpost Purchased

I can answer some of the questions you have, but I’m only a customer so don’t depend on my answers. :)

1. Yes, the widget shows every category which contains a post, also the sub-categories.

2. Just tried it, no problem whatsoever. If you want to use another menu on top (nav-bar), you probably have to edit some files to accomplish that, but as a widget there is no problem.

3. No idea

4. No problem, but I would suggest Achievements for Buddypress

5. It’s a free plugin for Buddypress.

And I have put the social buttons (Easy social Icons plugin) in the header next to the logo, just edited header.php and added (depends on the plugin to use offcourse) the following line and it looks great:

<?php if ( function_exists(‘cn_social_icon’) ) echo cn_social_icon(); ?>

Hi lastpost what mega menu did you use? Do you have it working on this theme I can see some place that would be great.

Can you also show me how your social icons look on you site with this theme. And what social widget did you use. The one that came with it or another plugin?

Thanks…

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes the theme has been tested with this plugin and is fully compatible.

Purchased! Thanks for the good work

GhostPool

Thanks. :)

Looking to purchase this theme to use with BuddyPress, will also be using a plugin so that users can upload and tag photos. Just wondering if this theme is setup to be compatible to BuddyPress image plugins and if so is there a particular plugin that I should use?

GhostPool

I don’t believe so, but ask the plugin creator to be sure.

Default-user

Activity Plus doesn’t have the features I want. I have decided to go with the BuddyPress Media plugin – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-media/. How will this integrate with your ‘Buddy’ theme?

GhostPool

This plugin has not been tested with the theme so I cannot guarantee it will work, but I don’t see any reasons why it would not.

Does anyone have details for these two questions?

2. Do you offer or will your theme work with a third-party responsive Mega-menu?

5. I noticed in this customer site demo there is a Verified User ICON is this a buddypress feature or a plugin that I can get? Also seen it for someone that was an editor http://inspiringpeople.co/members/arfah/

Thanks,

Zorro…...

I am really on the fence now about buying this theme since its taking so long to get my questions answered. Part of the reason I have asked the them is to see if support was going to be like the other place I got the last theme. If I am going to make an investment and the investment is more then the amount of money it cost for the them its time and future support.

GhostPool

Hi there,

It’s likely we’re in different time zones, which is why you’re always asking me questions when I’m a sleep. I answer support questions throughout the day and guarantee that questions are answered within 24 hours Monday to Friday.

zorro65

Ok that makes sense. But can I still get a response to questions 2 and 5?

GhostPool

I believe lastpost already addressed these questions, but I’ll also answer them.

2) Yes the theme should work with third party mega menus, many users have already integrated some. The theme also comes with a built-in mega menu feature.

5) lastpost already said this was a plugin. I believe it is called the BuddyPress Verified plugin (which has been discontinued by the looks of it). However to be sure you should contact the person using the feature.

Please GhostPool,

   I bought the theme yesterday and have not had time to register the support, look faqs and everything else, must deliver a beta version to a customer and do not know customize the sidebars. I put several videos on the left side and can put any widgets on any of the two columns (sidebars) on each page of the site. I tried with the drop-down menu in the sidebar settings page, but it does not return, it did not work, and to create a sidebar can not get links that are installed as site admin, register, coments rss entries rss wordpress.org and I just need to register.

thank you

GhostPool

Hi there,
