The Twitter plugin in the footer doesn’t always work, the same problem is on the live preview. Could you please take a look at it and maybe add a facebook widget in the footer also? I tried several plugins but it was hard to make them adapt in the section. Thanks sir and keep up the great work! Sales should be running in soon now that it’s rated :)

designedbydash

Strange, it was working flawlessly! I will take a look tonight though and issue a patch, hopefully bundled with the minimizing menu :)

designedbydash

This has now been patched, the update should be live shortly which will fix the issue. It may not appear to work instantly due to the cached Tweets, but should kick in within 20 minutes of uploading the patch.

The only folder you really need to upload is the /widgets/ folder!

On another note, unfortunately the minimizing menu is not going to be possible at the moment. It’s not something that I can just throw in it seems, it has to be designed to work like that and ours just simply isn’t. It’s something we’ll definitely look at for the next theme, or as part of a major update in the future, but for now it’s not going to be possible so apologies.

I’m really sad to hear that, I was looking forward to it alot, was updating constantly today to see if it had come. I hope that it comes with an update because the theme is great otherwise and that function has become really popular with the new themes.

Have you considered adding a small section on top of the menu for social icons, contact info and maybe WPML support as discussed earlier? It shouldn’t be to hard I think. And maybe a facebook widget on the bottom?

designedbydash

Apologies, if it was possible within the current build it would be done by now but it’s just not due to current technical restraints.

WPML support is in there, there’s just not a switcher as such. It won’t be before the weekend, but I will take a look at adding in a top bar with a few options as detailed above. The Facebook thing is a bit tricker, similarly to the Twitter feed it needs OAuth (access tokens, creating an app etc.). I’ll see what I can do though :)

That sounds great sir, I’m looking forward to the update and thanks alot for the great support. Your work is highly recommended! :)

Are there any news regarding the update of the header field (with language switcher) & maybe fb widget?

designedbydash

Not at this stage, it’s something we’ll look at but it’s unfortunately not something we can just throw in without designing it in to make sure it fits nicely, as well as works as intended.

I can’t put an exact date on a possible release, but I’m aiming to do a batch of updates as a 1.1 release before the end of the month :)

Fantastic site. Provides the perfect balance between polish corporate site, but one that still reflect a smaller, more comfortable team based company.

Question before I buy. Can this theme be easily changed to operate with a green hue instead of a blue one (i.e. Buttons, font color, separator bars?) My cousin’s business has a logo consisting predominantly of a sea green.

Thanks a bunch!

designedbydash

Hey,

Glad you like the theme! It would be super easy to change, you just need to essentially find and replace (it’ll take two seconds with Dreamweaver or even Notepad) the blue colour code and replace it with the green.

If you get stuck after purchase I can point you in the right direction :)

I would also like to throw my hat in the ring for designed WPML language switcher that matches with the theme. I am looking to do a site in 4 languages, one of them being Japanese. WPML works just fine, correct? Are you using any Google Fonts and if so, can they be turned off (Google Fonts+Japanese (or any non-latin alphabet) often cause problems in my experience)?

designedbydash

WPML is built in, there’s just no language switcher included (at least not yet). We use PT Sans and Patua, both Google fonts, but you can easily switch them for alternate fonts if you wish if you are comfortable editing a couple of files (or just editing the CSS and not using the Google Fonts).

I’m having problems translating the theme in WPML, some parts work just fine (like read more), others dont (example “see full project”, ”% comments” etc. I took a look in the code and read more uses ”<?php _e” (which I believe is the correct format), others don’t. Could you take a look at it?

designedbydash

I’ll take a look this evening and get back to you :)

designedbydash

This has hopefully been patched, the update is pending approval though. If you find any more that are not translatable (there shouldn’t be any) then let me know and I’ll patch it up :)

Default-user
mor1s Purchased

Sounds good, I’ll try it as soon as it comes. Could you tell me which files to replace?

designedbydash

I can’t get a definite list right now, I can confirm tomorrow, but I think single.php, archive.php, index.php, comments.php, walkers.php and shortcodes.php.

Default-user
mor1s Purchased

Awesome! I think one small part is missing, the “All” in portfolio, other then that, the theme seems to be fully translateable! We only need the language switcher now :P

Default-user
mor1s Purchased

Btw The twitter widget is not translate’able as well, only the “minutes ago..” part is neccessary, I believe.

designedbydash

Ah the widgets, they evaded me! I’ll get those patched up this evening and reuploaded :) The language switcher will be along soon, hopefully this weekend if not early next week :)

Default-user
mor1s Purchased

After further research I found that “share this post” that you added is not yet translateable and the option sections in theme options as well. That sounds good, please note which files to replace since I made some adjustments, thanks! :)

designedbydash

By options selections, do you mean the custom dropdown values in the theme options panel (i.e. “Enabled” for the first four entires in the general tab)?

Default-user
mor1s Purchased

No sir, I mean the fields where you can enter the custom values for different sections, ie: Comments Section Form Title, Comments Section Submit Button Text etc.. If you have a multilingual site then you can’t have a fixed definition for it I suppose..

designedbydash

Patch is sitting in the queue, you’ll need to ensure that http://wpml.org/download/wpml-string-translation/ is installed and activate, as the standard WPML doesn’t do dynamic strings – this add-on is required it seems.

designedbydash

Files edited: search.php, single.php, archive.php, comments.php, 404.php, single-portfolio.php and finally footer.php :)

After purchase, I could provide the landing page PSD, which is included in the landing page file here http://themeforest.net/item/mfx-converts-landing-page/1529881?sso?WT.ac=portfolio_item&WT.seg_1=portfolio_item&WT.z_author=metaffex

I love that we get fast responses and frequent updates.. and of course the look of this theme!

Is it possible to get a more complete list of shortcodes? I see some used in the demo site but I can’t find them in the documentation. Also, is it possible to get a list of the icons available for use with the icon box?

designedbydash

Hey,

All of the shortcodes available can be used in the visual editor (click the visual tab rather than text). There will be a row at the bottom with all of the available shortcodes on, just hover to see what each one is and click to insert :)

As for the icons, all of the icons available can be found at http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/cheatsheet/.

Can you make so that the sub-menu shows up when hovering on it and not having to click?

designedbydash

It’s not currently built in to the theme, but I can easily send you across a single .JS file and instructions on how to make it hover-enabled. Literally including one JS file and it’s done :)

Default-user

Sounds good, I have e-mailed you about it :)

I discovered a small bugg, when you zoom out from the map in the contact section, the blue mark changes position.

designedbydash

I will sort this out, it’s a bit strange though as it’s used on our other themes fine. But I’ll pinpoint the issue and release a patch.

Default-user

Alright, I mailed you about the other issues / buggs I encountered but I haven’t got a reply yet. It would be highly appreciated if you could solve them.

I have uploaded, but menus and slider not seems to work, could u plz help me with this?

designedbydash

Please read the documentation on installing / demo content, it covers those two parts. If you still can’t work it out please send me a link across and I’ll take a look :)

Default-user
http://hertzsolutions.co.uk/Projects/pandk/ this is the link can you point out where its went wrong?
designedbydash

The menu must be set under Appearance -> Menus. However, you’ll likely want to install the demo content, otherwise there will be no pages to set as the menu excluding the single default WP page that’s installed.

If you install the demo content, and follow the instructions in the documentation, you can also import the layerslider we have on the demo so that’ll appear too!

Default-user
As you said import everything but it still saying [LayerSliderWP] Slider not found on the home page http://hertzsolutions.co.uk/Projects/PandK/
designedbydash

Did you import the LayerSlider using the LayerSlider.txt file?

If so, then you might need to go in to the home page and from the Slideshow dropdown select the right slider from the dropdown. Then it should appear :)

Default-user

all sort it thanks

designedbydash

No worries, if you have any further questions don’t hesitate to ask and we’ll do our best to help you out :)

Cant seem to get the upload field to work in the contact form. Im sure I am missing something. Any help?

Cheers,

designedbydash

Hi there,

The form creator uses an external plugin called AJAX Contact. At this time, the plugin doesn’t support file uploads but it’s planned for a future release!

Default-user

Drats! Sad days.

Default-user
ChazzO Purchased

Seems to me that’s a basic component of a form creator.

designedbydash

You can try Contact Form 7 which is fairly popular, but I can’t promise it will display as beautifully as the other forms on the website. Having said that, I imagine it will display fairly nicely as Bootstrap is quite good like that :)

i was about to purchase afterall but reading the comments it seems like the template has some flaws and the developer is not delivering what he is promising

designedbydash

Do you have any examples?

Since release, we’ve pushed through something like 9 updates to add features and address issues. There will be another update before the end of the month that adds in any oustanding feature requests we feel are important, as well as any other bugs that are reported.

Default-user

well you promised them some updates that didnt come but im not judging i will wait and see the update before the month to decide if i will purchase

Default-user

if you need help in coding you can look at all the latest themes you can see their solution for the fixed header everyone is dynamic and not just fixed.

designedbydash

I don’t need help with the coding, I am perfectly capable. However it’s not as simple as just whacking in some JS; it has to be designed & planned so it’s not a completely messy hash of a hack.

Hi, I would like to setup the template as an example, but I can not embed LayerSlider in the same positions, my wp url:
http://goo.gl/YvFqt
In the product description there is written:
“The design is not only extremely clean and easy on the eye, but responsive to every device. The theme Also includes LayerSlider Which is worth $ 15!”
Where do I find the activation code for future upgrade? There is a file with complete instructions for setup? I have not found in file.zip
Can u help me, pls?
Best regards,

Daniele aka DundiDu
designedbydash

You’ll need to make sure you download “all files and documentation” and not just the Wordpress installable theme. In there you’ll find documentation on how to install the demo content, including LayerSlider :)

Hi, I’m looking forward to buy the theme, but I want to know if it is posible design the home page with the main menu just under the slide.

Like in this page: http://www.segulagroup.com/en/

designedbydash

It would be possible to move the nav there if you wished, but it’s not something that’s natively supported by the theme – it would require a bit of know-how to tweak the theme files to get the desired layout :)

Default-user

Thanks for the fast response! I realy like this theme so I will purchase it soon. I hope you can help me with the code’s requiered changes.

Hi. Nice and very close to what I’m looking for although with white background which I can obviously do … Q: does the theme have the tooltips functions ready to go or do those need to be added from the bootstrap additional 2 files … ? I didn’t see a demo of the tips/pops element, which we need for our business service site to put some quick info on stuff without forcing folks to open tabs or go to other pages. Thanks :-) Very nice theme!

designedbydash

Everything that is pre-built into bootstrap is also built into our theme. We just chose not to show everything because of how much space it would take up. I hope this helps answer your question.

If you need anything else, just let us know!

designedbydash

Oops, ignore what I just wrote – commented on the wrong post!

Sorry if this isn’t exactly support directly related to the theme, but I’m having trouble with the settings for image slider. Whenever I add my images the sizes seem to be off, stretched and/or blurry-regardless of what dimensions I make the image. To show you an example (http://goo.gl/mDMsQ), I used one of your stock images that is used in the demo, on my own site and the image is massive and stretched. What is the proper way to make the images in the slide work correctly?

Thanks!

designedbydash

Well that’s not something I’ve seen before! Would it be possible for you to email me across a login for the admin section so I can take a proper look?

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply. That would be great! Just sent an email with my admin login info to your domain email address.

Why are you not answering to my support tickets? Buggs & problems from weeks ago still remain. And hows it going with the before end of june big update?

designedbydash

Apologies if I haven’t, but I believe I’ve replied to all of your emails including sorting out the Bootstrap menu on hover that isn’t strictly included in the theme.

Default-user
mor1s Purchased

Sorry for the tripple post, was due to connection problems. I already replied to the hover menu several times, your solution didn’t work and the layerslider bugg still remains…

designedbydash

I’ve just pushed a mini update through that fixes the contact issue (it will now use Google’s default marker as the custom one was causing the bug) and the hover support is built-in via the theme options. It should be approved shortly.

As for the LayerSlider, can you email me a login to the WP admin for your site so I can take a closer look?

Default-user
mor1s Purchased

What files should I change for the update? The layerslider easing bugg is there even on fresh install, try it on your site and see for yourself. Please adres the issue and solve it as soon as possible since it’s an important feature of the functionality in layerslider.

designedbydash

I need to see how you’ve got it setup to confirm it’s all okay on the install that you have a problem with. If you take a look at http://designedbydash.com/beta/wptest/ you’ll see it’s fine (there’s all kinds of animations on that one, including bounces, and they all display fine).

I just sent you the login details to info@designedbydash.com (check garbage mail also). Please write down also which files to add / update since the last update.

Hi there, the item purchase code is invalid. Please advise

designedbydash

Do you mean for the LayerSlider plugin?

If so, it won’t be valid as it’s a purchase code for the theme and not that plugin I am afraid.

Default-user

Thanks dude. Ok, I’m definitely not your ideal customer. I don’t know what I’m doing but am enjoying fumbling my way through trying to make it work. It was the sexiest looking theme out there so I thought I’d give it a go. So, I don’t need that purchase code but can use the plugin? Any pointers would be much appreciated. Cheers.

designedbydash

That’s correct, the only thing the purchase code is useful for is automatic updates but we’ll update the theme with the latest update when it’s available :)

Glad you like the theme, ask as many questions as you need!

This is the first time that I buy a theme what is the file that I have to install?

designedbydash

There’s documentation provided, make sure under downloads you don’t just download the WP install but the documentation as well! Then it should all be explained in there, if not drop me another comment and I’ll help you out :)

Default-user

Thanks, I did that and I am super happy with your theme. I have an other question where do I change the colour of the callout button? Also, when you disable the callout section there is still a small the section on the page.

designedbydash

Can you link me to the callout section bit? It seems to disappear for me on our install when disabled!

As for the button you can use something like:

[btn color=”grey” /] (plus other parameters).

It accepts grey, blue, green, orange, red and black!

I want to change the theme. In order to get this. http://testbeeld.nl/box/converts.png Can you please help me a bit?
designedbydash

That’s a pretty hefty modification I’m afraid, and not something that’s covered by our support – any bugs or simple changes we’re happy to help out with, but something like that could take up to 60 minutes to achieve.

  • Has been a member for 0-1 years

what happened to the big update before end of june? all the requests you said would be added? i see in the comments that you promised alot in the coming updates but didnt deliver only a few bug fixes.

designedbydash

I actually added most of the requests as they were suggested, exceptions include a top bar and a Facebook widget as these were only suggested by a single user whereas other feature requests were a lot more popular.

We may well add them in at a later date, but we’re happy with the theme in its current state. If more people suggest those improvements, or if other ones become popular, we’ll add them in as required.
