Hey, really liked the theme on the demo link are you planning on keeping it updated?

Cubell

Hi there, I’m really happy you like it! I will definitely keep the theme updated, if any bugs are ever discovered, I will do my best to fix them as quickly as I can, and the sane applies if Wordpress release any new versions that cause problems. I will also be looking to add more features, and therefore will be listening to all suggestions/comments from users to decide which ones! Thanks again.

Hi! Beautiful theme! I really like the neat grid, light & colorful menu, full-width article headers… It definitely would be my dream-magazine theme, if there would be also full-width home and categories options :)

Maybe you plan to add such feature in the near future?

Cubell

Hi there, thanks for commenting! That is a good suggestion, and although I can’t promise anything right now, I will look into it further and play around with it to see if it would work well and look good! Thanks for the suggestion :)

Wow, gorgeous theme! Probably the best magazine theme I’ve seen on TF. I have pre-sale questions : - I noticed that your review widget (very cool btw ;)) shows reviews from different categories. Is it possible to show reviews from ONE specific category? - Can you have more than 4 entries in the widget? Thanks in advance!

Cubell

Hi! Thanks very much! Yes the widget can show reviews from only one specific category or from every category, and can show as many entries as you want :)

Hey! I thought the theme was so good I bought to just muck around with and see how it gets along with my website, everything is really good so far but I just have one question. You talk about a modular homepage on but I can’t seem to figure out how to implement and customize it from the wordpress cp. Any help would be great!

Thanks

Cubell

Hi Warnock. Thanks so much for purchasing Ciola! I hope you enjoy using it. Creating a modular homepage is very easy, you can find all the steps in the documentation under “Homepage” and “Module Builder”. If you still need help, please write a ticket on my support system and I will gladly help you ( http://cubell.ticksy.com ) it takes a few seconds to register and then other users can easily read the ticket too, comments here get lost (no comment search option) and aren’t supposed to be used for support. Thanks again :)

Yeah sorry about asking for support on here. I realiszd after I posted that it probably isn’t the best place – Nevertheless thanks for the quick reply

looks great. I have two questions: 1)Is it possible to add widgets to homepage along with modules? 2)Is there full-width (content body) post option?

Best and good luck.

Cubell

Hi Littbarski, thanks! 1) Do you mean put plugin widgets in place of the modules ? If that is what you mean, unfortunately not, widgets can only be placed in the sidebar (third column) and the footer. 2) There is currently a full-width template for pages only, but already a few people have asked about full-width posts, so I am going to play around with the idea soon and if I can get it to look good and work well, I will put it in an update. Thanks for the comment :)

Hi. Pre-sales questions.

1. It’s possible to use the homepage modules on individual pages? I need a different homepage for each category.

2. It’s possible to use full width posts without the right sidebar?

3. Includes Google Fonts? How many of them?

4. Any example on the demo of a post with pagination?

Very, very, very great theme. Congratulations.

Cubell

Hi Labios,

1- Do you mean you want to show modules (a, b, c, etc) on the category page? For example, have Module A above the latest posts in the Lifestyle category page (demo)? currently categories only have the option of showing the posts in 4 different styles + show a grid module/full-width slider/small slider above the posts.

2- Currently only pages have a full-width option, but there have already been a few people commenting about full-width posts, so I am going to play around with the idea over the coming days and if I can get it to look good and work well, I will put it in an update.

3- Yes the theme comes with Google Fonts. Like I mentioned in the description of the theme, I decided not to include all 800 Google fonts because a lot of them don’t look great + it is a waste of time for users to go through them all. That is why I have personally gone through loads of them and only added the ones I believe to be the best and look the nicest with the theme. In the theme options you can pick from 10 great fonts for all the headers/menus/special content and from 8 great fonts for the body font.

4- Certainly – You can see it in action at – http://ciola.cubellthemes.com/technology/gadgets/submarine-that-lets-you-speak-to-fish/

Thanks for the comment :)

Yes, in point 1, i want to show a category like a homepage, playing with the modules. A very similar theme, Gonzo, has this function. In the web i’m working in, if there’s a section called Music, another Cinema, each of one has his homepage… it’s like multiple magazines in one. Ok, it’s possible to use a Wordpress Multisite, but this complicate the main homepage, with each of the content of the secondary magazines.

One last question. It’s possible to show the homepage stretched, or only boxed like the demo?

Thanks for the answer.

Cubell

Ah okay, unfortunately Ciola doesn’t have a way of putting the modules on category pages at the moment, but I do like the idea, so I have written it down and I will see if I can implement it somehow. And the homepage can currently only be used as it it in the demo (boxed). Thanks again for your comments :)

Im thinking of buying this right now but can you tell me how to replace the header banner (468×60) with a leaderboard banner (728×90) ?

Cubell

Hi Truckmount, it is very easy, in the theme options there is an “advertisment” tab, in there you can select from “468×60/728×90/Off) and then insert your code. I do recommend that you only use 728/90 if you logo isn’t overly long, as the 728×90 banner will appear in the same place as the 468×60. Thanks for your comment :)

PROBLEM SOLVED I GUESS ;) Turning off Jetpack before installing the theme helped ;)

ok I have quite big problem. My theme doesn’t work – I have this error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare soundcloud_shortcode() (previously declared in /home/zebza/ftp/blog/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortcodes/soundcloud.php:45) in /home/zebza/ftp/blog/wp-content/themes/Ciola/library/extensions/soundcloud-shortcode.php on line 103

Cubell

Thanks for reporting this and I am glad you found a fix, but a lot of people use Jetpack, so I have fixed the problem permanently. The update will be ready to download as soon as Themeforest approves it :)

Hello,

how does the multiple background image work?

knuppel

Cubell

Hi Knuppel,

Are you referring to the Featured Image Style 5 (http://ciola.cubellthemes.com/lifestyle/places/stunning-places-to-visit/)?

If so, it is very simple. There is an option in a box in the post editor where you can upload several images and they will automatically show as a slideshow in the background, this is what it looks like:

Great Design. But before the purchase i have one question. Is it possible that the Homepage looks like http://ciola.cubellthemes.com/category/lifestyle/places/ without the slider? and i can choose like 5 articles from the category xyz

Cubell

Hi Matse, that category (lifestyle/places) is showing the latest posts of the category “places” using style A + with big slider on, you can indeed turn the slider off, or if you wished show a grid module or small slider in its place.

You can also set the homepage to display the latest 5 posts and display them using the same style as category lifestyle/places (In “Settings -> Reading” you must have your wordpress site to display the “latest posts” and the “Blog pages show at most” set to 5).

However, this will show the latest posts of all categories of the website on the homepage, there isn’t a way to only choose to show posts from category xyz using the blog styles. The only way to display the latest posts of specific categories on the homepage is to create a page that uses the modules that are on the demo homepage.

Thanks for commenting.

Hello,

I am looking at purchasing Ciola.

I need to have a blog that is separate from the other magazine articles.

I don’t want the blog category to show with all the other articles in latest posts. Is that possible with this theme?

Thanks!

Phil

Cubell

Hi Phildef,

Please forgive me, but I do not fully understand what you are asking.

When you say latest posts, do you mean to have a website that has set Wordpress Settings -> Reading to “show latest posts” and on the homepage you want to see all the latest posts but not from the “blog” category? If that is what you mean, then unfortunately there is no way to do that with Ciola. Wordpress’ “Show latest posts” option shows everything. The only way to manually select what categories to show on the homepage is to create a page and use the modules as seen on the homepage of the demo.

Thanks Phil!

Pre-sales questions:

1. is there only one width on the page? (i would like it about 1200 px) – how much is it now?

2. the google fonts – do you have Muli – in your choosen ones?

3. Is it possible to make like this “latest news” thats rolling on the top of the page? thats brilliant – http://theme.effectivelab.net/?theme=effectivenews

:)

Thanks – Jane

Cubell

Hi Jane,

1- The theme is responsive and changes width depending on the size of the screen viewing it, the max width is set to 1020px, and it would likely take a big amount of customization to get it to be 1200px (every page/style/post/etc would have to be redesigned)

2- I did not include Muli in the Google fonts, however, I am thinking about adding an extra box (so in addition to the dropdown with fonts I selected) where users can type in the Google Font they want to use, which would help special cases where someone wants to use a very specific font, like Muli. I will be looking to add this option in an update.

3- Ciola only shows the “breaking news” with vertical scrolling, therefore the only way to get it to scroll horizontally, like in that theme, would be to edit the code.

Thanks for your questions! :)

InfinityJane2013

Thanks for you quick replay :) So it will never be more than 1020px as option, not in the future either?

I cant see the breaking news on the Ciola? Maybe i am tired :P

Cubell

Unfortunately, I don’t think it will ever be 1200px, the only way would be to do some extensive editing, which quite honestly is not worth it, if you really need a 1200px wide theme, the best thing to do is to find a theme that is natively 1200px wide.

And by breaking news I was referring to the vertical scrolling news in the top bar (left side) that has the word “breaking” next to it. I thought you were asking if you could change it from vertical scrolling to horizontal scrolling like the “latest news” box in that theme you posted.

Good luck :)

How do you remove modules A, E, and C from the homepage. Thanks!

Cubell

Hi there, thanks for purchasing Ciola! I am glad you are enjoying it :) For support, could you please submit a ticket at http://cubell.ticksy.com it is free and takes literally 5 seconds to do. The reason I ask is because future users might ask the same questions and over there they can easily find them, here comments get lost in-between the many other comments and Themeforest doesn’t want comments to be used for providing support.

Could you please also explain in the ticket how you got modules A, E and C on the homepage from the start? Did you install the sample content? And for your “how to remove transitions” question, please let me know which transitions specifically you wish to remove, so I can help you better. Thanks again.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. I just submitted a ticket on http://cubell.ticksy.com – please let me know if you’ve received it. I included an attachment also to explain what modules I’m referring to.

Thanks for your help.

Cubell

Hi again, I looked at the support system and there isn’t any tickets from you, can you please try again? I have received tickets and solved them already, so the support system definitely works. Please try again and if you have problems, email me through the email box on my profile – http://themeforest.net/user/Cubell and I can try to help you that way.

Morning,

Beautiful theme, magazines seem all the rage at the moment.

A few pre-sales questions if you don’t mind…

1) Can the colours of the sections and menu be changed? (via admin) 2) Can the homepage grid pages have mini slideshows within them? 3) Does the theme come with google fonts? 4) Can the homepage carousels auto cycle? 5) Is there a popular posts widget? 6) Is video supported in the slider?

I think that’s it for now Cheers Rich

Cubell

Morning Rich,

Thanks for commenting!

1- Yes, the colour of every section (category) can be changed easily using a color picker in the wordpress category editor. And when you change the colour of a category, if you have that category in the main navigation bar, it will automatically show that colour on hover.

2- The grid does not have mini slideshows within them, it currently only displays the featured image.

3- Yes the theme comes with Google Fonts, I have personally gone through hundreds of fonts and identified the best ones and included them in the admin area, where you can choose a font for headers/menus/important stuff and another for the main body text.

4- Yes, every slider of the theme can auto-cycle, I set them to not do so because personally I don’t like sliders that move on their own :)

5- I considered making a popular posts widget, but there are so many really good free plugins already available for wordpress, that I decided making one was needed.

6- I haven’t tried to do this, as because this is a magazine theme, I thought it works best when video posts show the featured image with a “play” button overlaid over them, so visitors go see the entire article when wanting to watch a video, however, the sliders can play videos and they would only require a few lines of code that if users want, I can see if I can include in an update. The videos would like something like this: http://flexslider.woothemes.com/video.html (that is the slider Ciola uses).

Thanks for your questions!

Sorry me again, any chance of seeing a few admin screens please?

And is there an XML full demo install file for the theme as well please?

Hi again, sure, here is what it looks like: http://s20.postimg.org/62ize7t7h/admin_example.png and the theme does come with an XML with the demo’s content (images are not included). Thanks.

Hi Cubell,

I think your theme is amazing from what I have seen so far! Great job. I do however have a few questions to ask before making a purchase..

1) Is it possible to turn off “about the author” section after the posts?

2) Ciola automatically changes all big pictures to similar size thumbnails on both category pages as well as under “related posts” right? :)

3) Is it possible to modify the social icons since I am not using twitter regularly for instance?

Cubell

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your very kind words!

1- At the moment, the only way to turn the about the author section out is by deleting one line in one file (which of course I can write the steps for you to follow, if you needed to).

2- Yes, ideally you would upload a big first image (in case you want to use one of the big featured image styles on the post), and the theme will automatically create appropriate sized thumbnails to use in places such as related posts, modules, latest posts widget, etc.

3- In the footer social icons, you don’t have to set a twitter and the icon won’t appear. The social media widget works the same way, if you don’t put in a twitter username, it doesn’t show, the widget currently has options for facebook, twitter, rss and pinterest.
