Hello I like your theme and i have any questions.

1 like BuddyPress, Can i adapt for user’s community? And How can they register?

2 In this forum, User can post and attach pictures in any post. right?

Hi there,

1) I’m not sure what you mean by “adapt the user’s community”? BuddyPress provide a registration page for users to register, just make sure you enable the registration option from your WordPress settings page.

2) Yes you can display images in posts, but bbPress does not allow you to attach images that you have not hosted yourself – you’ll need to use a bbPress plugin to do this. I suggest asking bbPress about this, since it relates to their plugin and not the theme.

Hi there, it sounds like you need theme support. Just so you know the ThemeForest comments area is a dedicated place for people who have not yet purchased the theme and want to ask pre-purchase questions.

Thanks.

Is there a free trial available?

Hi there,

No sorry there’s no way to provide you with a free trial without you having access to the full version of the theme. As with any themes here you need to purchase it before you can install it.

However if you have any questions or want to see any screenshots of a particular part of the site before you purchase it, please let me know.

Hello, I bought the buddy theme two months ago and I’m kind of disappointed. there are never updates, the CSS is never externalized, so is the JavaScript. There a so many bugs, especially with the slider which disappears due to plugins incompatibility. And, it never displays any real-time notification for buddy press.

I do not intend to get something perfect. Otherwise I would invest much more cash. The fact remains that there are too many compatibility issues with Wordpress addons and it is too bad for a Wordpress theme.

Please, fix it for the social login buttons addons. Please, fix this kind of issuse for the “abuse report” button addon (for Buddy Press). Please, fix it for the realtime notification addon (for BuddyPress and why no realtime notification directly in the nav bar, like Facebook ?).

Why can I see so many JavaScript lines in the header ?

Why can I see inline CSS ?

I am not asking you to make me get 100 % to Google Page Speed Insights (google.com itself does not reach this score) but only 50 % is low, very low. Please understand this.

When I go to the “write a message” section, I cannot type a member’s name, it has never worked.

I copy this message to your support center so that you take it into account and, hopefully, can fix it at most.

Thanks in advance.

I have replied to your support ticket.

So did I.

Is there any demo username and pass to try theme?

Hi there,

As with most themes sold here we unfortunately do not provide the ability to test the theme before you purchase it. The main reason for this is a demo would be editable by all users and as a result some users would completely ruin the theme and the potential buyer would then get a completely skewed view of how the theme works. When a reliable theme demo plugin is available, there are plans to allow theme testing.

However if you have any specific questions or want to see any screenshots let me know.

Hi I have just buy this theme. Wher i can download the demo ? Thanks

In the description it mentions a theme design for bbPress and shows a photo of a forum. I have this theme, but the forums are not redesigned. Is this an error? Or is that just not included in the theme?

Oh, I didn’t even know there was an update! I have the notification checked, but don’t think I got an email…. Is there a way to see what’s changed in the new version?

Nevermind, I found the changelog in the help files.

ALSO just found the notification email. I just missed it :( Sorry about that!

So, generally I really like the new version of the theme, thanks. But I REALLY preferred the old style of the groups directory. Really, really not a fan of the new one. AND it’s the most important page on my site. Is there way to revert the old style for just the groups page?

(also, everyone on my site seems to agree. Might end up reverting to old version if we can’t change it.)

Thanks for the comments. Head over to the support forum and I’ll provide you with a solution.

Hello, Is this theme allows to show some slider or a horizontal post list of a specfic category?

1) What kind of restrictions?

2) By default only admins and editors – you assign the roles. These are default WordPress options that apply to any theme.

3) You can choose to let only you or any logged in user create a group.

4) It’s a shortcode that displays posts, you can choose what categories are displayed, the order and number of the posts etc.

Thanks, Is it possible to set a premoderation of created new groups by a logged in users?

I’m not sure what you mean sorry?

Hello, I’m looking into buying your theme but before i do i want to ask if you know if it’s compatible with UltimateMember plugin used in Wordpress?

Hi there,

I have not tested Buddy with this plugin so I cannot say if it’s compatible unfortunately. This was created as a BuddyPress theme only.

Dear GhostPool !!!!

This theme is awesome.

Thanks. :)

Hello

I am a school teacher in charge of out IT department, and we are looking for a WordPress theme which works with buddypress and have found this, and it looks fantastic for what we need.

However we need to ensure that it works with the files we already have and need to use on a daily basis. We want to have this installed for every class in the school (there’s 1000 students, split across 30 classes), so it has to be perfect

IS there any way we can try this and confirm it’s suitable? If it is, we will be more than happy to go ahead and purchase the license for each class.

Thanks for your help!

Hi there,

Unfortunately there’s no way to test the demo before you purchase it. However if you have any specific questions or want to see any backend screenshots please let me know. I already have several screenshots which you can find by clicking the Screenshots button on the item page.

Morning,

Thanks for the response.

We’d need to confirm that it works with our current SharePoint files which is used across the network. It’s the best theme we’ve found, but the school need to confirm that the product will work 100% with our pre-existing setup which is why I asked if we could somehow be able to verify this.

While I’m working on giving users demo access, even if this was already set up you still wouldn’t be able to see if your own files worked with the theme on a demo site. You would require a free copy of the theme to test this out, as you can imagine this isn’t practical. As a seller I can’t give out free copies of the theme for users to test as I have no guarantee they’ll buy the theme.

Buddy is a standard WordPress and BuddyPress theme. You can install the BuddyPress plugin for free with any theme. So I would suggest using it with the default Twenty Fifteen theme and see if your SharePoint files work. If they do, then they should work with Buddy. If they don’t then they won’t work with Buddy.

I have already purchased this product and have sent in a ticket and I’m currently waiting for a reply. In the meantime, I was just wondering if anyone else were having alignment problems, especially with the home page that you get after setting up the ‘imported demo content’ Most of the other pages seem to be working fine but the home page and some of the buddypress related pages among other ones seem to be having some alignment issues. I was just wondering if anybody had any quick solutions to provide just in case it takes a couple of days for the ghost guys to get back with me :)

I’ve responded to your ticket on the support site. :)

Hi, like your theme and have any question. Are the userprofiles of Buddypress and BBPress managed by one site or are there two panels for the user? If I insall buddypress and bbpress on a standard theme, I have two profile pages, and thats not so nice.

Thanks and regards Pare

Hi there,

bbPress does not provide user profiles – if you have BuddyPress enabled bbPress links to the same user profile pages as BuddyPress.

thanks for your reply. is there a option to setup the registration page with custom fileds like name, city etc. and a checkbox for terms and conditions?

BuddyPress provide these options for their registration page.

Hi, I would like my users to be able to create their own portfolio (via the frontend). Would this be possible or can only the admin create portfolios?

Hi there,

This is not possible with the theme, you’ll need to use a plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-submitted-posts – but you’ll need to check if this works with custom post types (portfolios).

Hi, I have two more question. 1. When I try to login via your demo site (which I obviously can’t) I get referred to the backend login screen of Wordpress. Is this a bug or just a setting issue? 2. How do you display ‘Latest Activity’, ‘Latest Posts’ etc in the mid-section? Is this done via short codes? These are different pages, right?

Hi there,

1) This is is not a bug. The theme only provides a login page, it does not currently offer a frontend login error interface.

2) Yes this is done via shortcodes.

I would like to have screenshots from both logged in user- view and the admin- view. I would need to see how replying to posts look like, and also information about wordpress plugin compatibility.

Plugins to confirm: -CometChat -rtMedia -BuddyPress Live Notification -Report media

Please email me screenshots and compatibility information at masa.hrpro [at] gmail.com

Hi there,

Not sure why I need to email you when I can just reply to your questions here. :)

I already provide screenshots of the admin interface (click the Screenshots button on the item page). As for the logged in users view they see exactly what you see except they have a profile button next to the Login button with their username.

The theme has not been tested with these plugins unfortunately. With thousands of plugins available it’s not possible to test all of them with the theme. However we try to test some of the most popular plugins including BuddyPress, bbPress WooCommerce. Most plugins should work with theme out of the box, however if the plugin has a lot of frontend content then its styling may not match the styling of the theme.

Ok, maybe if i ask spesific questions it would be better for you to understand.

- When someone creates a post: Can you comment this post? - If you can comment the post, can you also add media to the reply to the post? - can users add media in groups? (wall, comments etc.) - when posting a link, will it show preview of the link content or just a link? (for example, a youtube link shows video window)

I asked for the screenshots, as you mentioned on the support site a few times that you will provide if needed?

Thanks in advance.

All themes support comments in posts – this is not a theme feature it’s a WordPress feature which you can see in the demo.

The WordPress comment form supports images using HTML tags. Links are automatically hyperlinked. Video links do not automatically show videos. This is the same for every theme unless they state they have extra features. :)

Users cannot attach media to BuddyPress Groups. They can post a comment in a group and add images/links just like they can in post comments as I described above. You can test BuddyPress on any theme to see what features it does and does not have for a logged in user.

I’m not sure what screenshots would show in these cases – there’s no logged in user interface for comments. To insert links or images you just need to type or copy and paste the links and manually add HTML tags for images.
