Nice thinking about buy it for my friend repairshop. Few questions 1 )can i easily replace newsletter section with one more service block ? 2) can be contact form enhanced with numeric captcha ? 3) can route navigation be added to map ? so user can get navigation instruction ? 4) can gallery on homepage be direct ? I mean now when I click to picture in gallery on homepage .. new page will open with text nad pictures I need when clicki on picture picture enlarge but NO new page is opened like now.. 5 )how highlightzing of DAY in opening time tab works ? I have server in US while IM in Europe – does it takes date from server zone or it can be setup in admin to different zone independent on server/hosting location …? as because my server is in different continent day will be wrong if your app takes date from server..6) I would welcome TEAM section where can have photos and short CV of mechanics… will you add that ?

ProteusThemes

Hi,

I will try to answer everything:

1) yes, you just remove a newsletter widget and select in the services widget to display 4 services. Cannot be easier than that.

2) contact form is made with Contact Form 7, which has captcha option and can be easily added, but also integrates with Akismet, which is more user-friendly.

3) that unfortunately is not possible. But you can include in the popup the link to the google maps where you can show the navigation instructions

4) there is no option for this now, but maybe I will add it in the future versions. Will talk to the team about this.

5) the times zone is the one you setup generally for the WP in the wp-admin > settings > timezone. So it is not related where the server is located, but is the same as all the other dates in the WP. We developed that widget a year ago and it is very well tested.

6) the team is not added yet, but we could add it as we have the code already developed for our Hairpress WP. Take a look here http://hairpress.demo.proteusthemes.com/ and let me know if you had something similar in mind.

Default-user

thanks for replies. Sound s good. Maybe you can add some button with sample of link from map to google to get a route instructions to theme so user just change a link to google from admin and people can directly click to googlemap open in popup window with route instructions. Regarding team section from your another theme – its great will be good if you implement it to this theme. I also like team photo scroller in frontpage you have in otheer template – you can add this too but I would make it not full width because (its good only for really big amount of members/workers) if someboidy have only few members ..like 2-3 people than it will not look good so I would make it boxed and centered to middle of screen so even 2 or 3 members in slider will not disturb site design and it look good. Regarding direct picture open from homepage gallery – I think you should really consider implement that – for services like mechanic – user dont need some separate page with text and other images – if on homepage will be some thumbnails like is now – which open larger photos on click its just enought – keep things simple its the key :-) no need to open separate page with text and other pics – users can use separate gallerty for that which they can open from main menu ( like now as you have gallery in main menu) but gallery which is on homepage should be simple slivk and enlarge without opening other pages..

ProteusThemes

Thank you for your suggestion, we will implement it in some way.

Default-user

great thx for answer – i will wait and watch your theme update progress, after you implement thinds i suggested I 100% gonna buys . Do you have an idea whenabout you gonna implement things I mentioned like team section, direct picture opening from homepage gallery ?

ProteusThemes

By the end of the next week for sure.

Good niche based themes, as it seems that it is supported by backend functions to control a Workshop business buyers will like it. Best of luck for such a unique idea.

ProteusThemes

Yes, we specialize in the niche themes where we brainstorm what specific business needs and what is a bloat – so setting and running a website is as easy as possible.

GLWS, but seriously design is outdated.

ProteusThemes

Thank you for your opininon. We think that 90% designs on the themeforest are all the same, maybe that’s why you are under impression that it is outdated – because it is different!

I have one more question: is there some ready position for place wpml language switcher flags like some other wpml ready themes have ? They (some) already have prepared position for a flags so it fit site design so wandering if you did this too ?

ProteusThemes

Hi,

Yes, the flags fit to the bottom of the site, but shortly (the next week) we will also add the option at the top of the site. It will be available as free upgrade, so you can buy, see how good the theme is and how the current WPML implementation looks like and the next week we have the update ready as well if you need flags at the top.

Is there a way to add a slider to the homepage?

ProteusThemes

Hi, not yet, but we are adding the optional homepage with a slider the next week.

ProteusThemes

Hi, as we promised, the slider is now ready, take a look at the demo page. And it is optional, you still use the front page without slider.

No ‘Click-to-call’ on the mobile responsive version?

ProteusThemes

Excellent suggestion, thank you!

steveivs42

get that on there and I’ll more than likely buy. Have a client and they are due a site theme upgrade and this could fit the bill but I created a separate mobile site purely for this reason….... customers want to instantly call the garage.

ProteusThemes

This will be implemented today already. A big button at the very top for the devices which are capable to make a call.

ProteusThemes

Hi, take a look at the demo page, we have added that option (for the mobile version, you will have to resize your browser under 980px wide to see it. And make sure you clear the cache to get the latest stylesheets.

steveivs42

Excellent. Can that header tap to call background colour be changed? It doesn’t stand out enough….. ideally needs to be an orange colour or something like that…... its a call to action area and it seems to blend in rather than stick out like it should!

ProteusThemes

Yes, it can be. Either if you change the color scheme of the theme (blue) or in the custom CSS you can change to any color you can think of (we can help there with the CSS code for free via http://support.proteusthemes.com).

steveivs42

Marvelous,will purchase Monday. Thanks for the rapid response, much appreciated.

ProteusThemes

Great, I will notify you here when the update is up & ready ;)

ProteusThemes

The update is ready for that feature ;)

What are the color options? :)

And is there a early update on using a slider instead of the opening time table? Would be lovely! The two only reasons that I am not buying yet for my client..

ProteusThemes

Hi,

The color options are truly unlimited. With the live preview customizer you can change the default two colors (blue and orange) to any you like.

The slider is coming in the beginning of the next week, you can buy the theme and it will come as a free update.

Default-user

Awesome! I will wait till the update and then if my client also likes it I buy it :)

ProteusThemes

Sure, I bet you will love it ;)

Will the slider be released on monday? We will buy it when it comes. Thanks

Default-user

It would be great if the slider and the Opening times can be visible at the same time :-)

ProteusThemes

Let’s see what our designer comes up with :)

We clicked the “Customize” to change the main color of the theme from Blue to Red, but the down down menus are still blue?

luxerman

Should also auto update the footer to say 2014 and to replace “HairPress” with CarPress :P

ProteusThemes

Yup, true. On Monday everything will be fixed ;)

luxerman

Is there a way to increase the zoom level on the map? Also, how can we make it lighter/normal? It’s too dark for us.

luxerman

Where do we edit the “Repairing cars since 1966” text? It’s not in any of the widgets, pages or posts?

ProteusThemes

Hi,

The texts you mentioned can be changed in the customizer (where you changed the colors, wp-admin > appearance > customize). As well as map zoom and texts ;)

Everything that’s possible is there, so you can actually see the changes in real time.

For further support please write to http://support.proteusthemes.com

ProteusThemes

I hope you like the theme, on monday or tuesday a bigger update will be ready with some more features/options.

Will appreciate your feedback as you are one of the first customers :)

ProteusThemes

We fixed the dropdown menus in the latest update to v1.1.0

OK, roger roger. I will leave here a comment when it’s ready, probably Tuesday.
