hey there nice looking theme 2 questions, does it work ok with multisite and are there any plugins required for this theme? thanks!

ubernaut

awesome thanks for clarifying i think you have another sale on your hands just need to confirm with the client.

:D

iwthemes

Thanks, will be glad to help in whatever you need.

Regards! :)

Just like to say I’ve been working with this theme for the last couple of weeks for a client, and as far as version 1.1 is concerned, I don’t personally feel it’s quite ready for commercial release. It looks great, but the code could do with a bit more development.

Your mileage may vary, but I just felt it worth while giving some constructive feedback, instead of just “this blows” or “this sucks”, because it doesn’t. It looks great – its just let down a little on the WP side!

After advising iwthemes of the initial issues we were experiencing (custom zones not displaying), I was advised it was a problem with our server configuration. This was why apparently I couldn’t use any of the nice custom zones, and this is the key reason why we chose it.

We decided to sack off getting any after-care or support, and after further analysis by our WP guys, it was noted that the Chester theme doesn’t stick to WP guidelines for reserved variable names, which is what caused the zones not to work, and additionally out of the box, the child themes would not work as expected.

We were also unable to run third party shortcodes on the Pages using either WP Bakery’s VC or custom ones we built for the client. We tested this by sucessfully executing our shortcodes out of the Page editor, and they worked fine on Posts and Widgets.

The responsive layouts cut the text on boxes and needed further tweaking to look right. Logos look fuzzy and there is no accommodation for retina logos. We had to hard code this into the theme.

It’s a great looking theme, but for $45 I would expect a more seamless installation and configuration and need less input from developers.

I hope it improves…

Hi,

Can you let me know how to set up the theme with sample data so it looks like the live preview, then I can work backwards from there?

Thanks for you help

I agree with Giraffedog above – this theme is FAR from ready to release—a LOT of problems in the PHP files and now we added ONE – just ONE standard plugin and the site crashed – No fixing it and we re-installed yet for a FOURTH time and now get tons of these errors in a FRESH INSTALL

Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /hom…....

I am almost ready to ask for a refund or do a chargeback unless its FIXED. It looks nice – but FUNCTIONAL is MOST important!!!!!!

iwthemes

Hi, I do not understand what kind of problem you have with the subject, so far we have not received an email from you to report the problem, please write to support@iwthemes.com

Why would I care about your mass email about the Drupal Theme – You never helped getting the issues fixed I had above. Thanks but no thanks!

Hello, the theme is incompatible with some plugins? I installed Shortcode Ultimate, but it does not work, it displays only the code but not the graphic effect.

Default-user

UPDATE: all plugins that use shortcodes do not work properly, only showing the code and not the actual content. Why is this happening? the theme blocks some functionality?

iwthemes

This is a pre-purchase question. My clients ask you design the back end and front? or just back end? Just want to make sure before we purchase it. Thanks for your attention! Regards!

iwthemes

thank you for the support,,, hopefully my clients love it,,, nice work iwthemes. Best Regards!

This theme doesn’t work with the Wordpress SEO Yoast plugin. I wish I would have known that before purchasing the theme. I’ve never run into a problem with Yoast before. I’m hoping none of the other plugins I use cause similar errors. :/

iwthemes

Hi, the issue is now 100% compatible with seo plugin.

I suggest installing the version that we have sent to your email.

Or download the upgrade in a tomorrow update here on tm.

Regards!

Hello, hope you’re doing well. I have installed a woocommerce plugin onto my chester theme and am having the following problem: Everything on the Shop page is aligned to the far left. Each product/product category in the left most column has part of its image and caption cut off.

Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do in order to fix this problem?

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
