Could you provide a more detailed instruction for importing the SQL file? I can’‘t seem to get it to work.

I’ve changed the DB_Name in wp-config.php to a new DB name I’ve created that new DB Its blank so I have no data to delete. I import your Disctrict.sql I go to my site, I’m promted to create site name & first-time credentials. I do that, log in and there is no content (pages, posts, etc) from the sql import.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Greatnorwegian,

I’m not exactly sure what could be going on. If the database name in wp_config matches your actual database name in your phpmyAdmin, and you’ve imported the sql to that database, it should work correctly. Just be sure to change your site url in the wp_options table. Click on the “wp_options” table and change the “site_url” to match your own site url. I would just double check the fine details – it sounds like your site is pulling data from the wrong database.

2 questions before proceed to purchse.

1. Is there any function to disable Post Author, Post Date, Post Categories, Post Tags and Post Comments?

2. Is there any shortcode for displaying post based on category, columns, order, etc?

Thnx.

embroiderysecret

Great.. and definitely looking for the future update for post shortcode. Maybe you may look at Supermassive theme on how post shortcode are greatly added in its theme. ;)

2winFactor

Thanks embroiderysecret,

I’ll see what I can do about adding some of these features in an early update.

Great bookmarked for future purchased

If there’s a PSD file available I’d surely buy it ;)

2winFactor

Hi BuitenAardig,

Unfortunately, there’s no PSD available for the theme. I do a lot of designing in the browser, so I’d need to create one. That may come in a future update.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Hi,

Very great theme! Before purchase it, is it possible to display the blog posts (with pagination) below the customized sections of the homepage? In fact, I’d like to have : slider, then sections, and blog. The pagination would link to page 2, 3 etc… of the blog page.

Secondly, does the theme provide custom post formats (quotes, links, etc) ?

Thanks! Good luck for the sales, it will be a success.

Default-user

Thanks Andre ! I think the 1) feature would be very very nice, I saw that someone else asked to have recent posts on homepage ;)

2winFactor

Working on it! :)

Great!! Thank you very much for considering our feature suggestions! I’ll be proud to show your template to the marketing department of my organization ;)

For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to change the top navigation font-size. What am I missing?

Thanks very much!

hi how to set up short descryption of portfolio item in filter?

2winFactor

Hi Folik,

Do you mean a description for your individual filter pages? Just navigate to Portfolio > Filters and click on the filter you want to add a description to. Then add you description in the “Description” box.

Hello,

AMAZING theme. I have no complaints with this one! Quick question, how do I put that black bar that says "Follow us to get the latest updates" like you have on the footer of your demo? I really want that. Also, I am having a hard time mimicking how you created the "Create Unique Layouts" section with a full image. What is the sizing on the background? Please help as soon as you can. Thanks again!
2winFactor

Hi Iamdavidvo,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

Have you checked out the xml file included with the theme download? You can import that to get all the content from the demo, with some dummy images, and then just delete the ones you don’t want.

The footer section was made by creating a section with a “Custom” layout. Then in the content area, I just added two one half column shortcodes, one for the title and the other for the social icons.

The “Create Unique Layouts” image is just a section with a “Left” layout, and a background image. The background will automatically center in that section, I just made the figure off-center so it was opposite the text.

Hey, I really like this theme! I just recently transitioned from icky Joomla! to WordPress with my multimedia / journalism portfolio. I don’t have anything up yet, but am looking for a theme that supports all things journalism-wise. I have videos on their own without being in YouTube / other websites, can I still upload them and place them on pages?

Also, I have some fairly large PDF graphic design files, does this theme automatically resize / accept PDFs?

And one more thing, I have a lot of writing samples to put up as well, but it’s hard to find a theme that includes writing, video ,design, multimedia, photos, etc. Could I somehow categorize my writing based on the place I worked for and then put in individual articles? I suppose that would be for the blog? I’d prefer a non-blog atmosphere for my writing samples if that’s possible (with no media files attached)?

Thanks!

2winFactor

Hi Ktlu004,

Thanks so much for your interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

The theme only supports youtube and vimeo videos in the “featured area”. If you want to add your own videos, you’d need to use a plugin to do that:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jw-player-plugin-for-wordpress/

I don’t think WordPress supports pdf files as thumbnail images. Those need to be image files, like .png, .gif or .jpeg files. It shouldn’t be too difficult to take screenshots of your pdf to create those images.

I believe the blog may be the best option for your writing samples. You can use blog posts for that, and you don’t have to include any media files or anything.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Loving the look of this theme! Quick question before purchase… Is it possible to set the homepage up to include some “recent posts” or blog-style information in addition to the slider and other page sections?

2winFactor

Hi Ralex,

That functionality doesn’t exist with the theme out of the box. You’d need to make some modifications to the theme to get that to work.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I’d be happy to help.

Andre

Hi, just one question. I would need to use the theme for a multilingual website (with language switcher). Maybe you did test the theme with plugins like WPML or qTranslate?

Are there any issues using this plugins? Is the theme compatible? I have concerns regarding the portfolio (drag and drop section).

Thank you!

Default-user

Hi Andre,

thanks for your reply. Could you estimate a time when the next update will be available (with the mentioned plugin compatibility)?

Thanks again!

2winFactor

Sure, I’m looking to have both in the first update, which should be within the next week or so. qtranslate works with just a minor tweak to the sections.php file, but I haven’t had a chance to test WPML yet.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

2winFactor

Hi Lookat,

The latest version of the theme (1.1.2) has been optimized to work with qtranslate. Thanks!

Andre

Great looking theme! Wondering if it is possible to post a list of images in the portfolio section, rather than a slider? Im a web designer and most all of my work is too tall for that slider. Thanks!

2winFactor

Hi Mattdronkers,

Yep, it’s possible. You’d just need to make a small modification to the theme to get that to work. Basically, you’d just need to remove the slider javascript on that page.

However, if your work is taller, the slider accommodates for any height image. Each image in the slideshow can be of variable height and it will accommodate.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Hi! Is it possible to show thumbnails on the homepage slider? Is it possible to show this kind of slider on a regular page? Thanks!

2winFactor

Hi Jorlafer,

There’s no “thumbnail” feature for the homepage slider for the homepage slider at the moment, however, that may come in an early update.

For your second question, what do you mean by “that kind of slider”? Are you talking about the slider on the homepage? That slider appears on any page that you give that page template, so it doesn’t have to be a homepage. However, it will always get all the slides you make in your slides section.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Love the Content Section features. I have few questions before my purchase:

1. Can it be used in Multisite Setup 2. Is the functionality like custom post types tied to the theme or is it plugin activation loader.

2winFactor

Hi Julian,

Thanks! I’m glad you like it!

1. I haven’t tested this in Multi-Site yet, so I can’t give you an iron clad guarantee that it will work. However, “sections” are just custom post types, and all the options are just custom fields. I’m assuming it will work but I have to do some testing yet.

2. The functionality is within the theme – the sections are custom post types so no plugins are necessary.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

julianprice

I have just purchased your theme and look forward to using it. The documentation along is worth $40 in addition an understandable file structure.

Hi. It’s great theme. You are real pro:-). But before purchased. Is it international theme, can i translate to Russian lang?

2winFactor

Hi Aplay,

Yep! All strings are translatable via the .po/.mo files included with the theme.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Default-user

Thanks. Could I put to Home page latest from blog?

Hi Aplay,

That functionality doesn’t exist in the theme currently. You’d need to make a few modifications to get that to work.

I can’t find templates like “our team” or “services”, is it possible to code columns with icons in this theme? Is it possible to make menu buttons scroll the page to relevant section (like in one-page themes)?

xdkd

Thanks! I missed those pages somehow! So I basically need to insert some icon shortcode inside a column here http://themewich.com/district/?page_id=963 to achieve columns with icons? I don’t see any icons here though http://themewich.com/district/?page_id=370 I also have a question about slider, I tried increasing container height via Firebug and it works, will I be able to setup it to have height like 70% of window? And make keyboard arrows switch slides? Is there a retina logo support?

2winFactor

Hi xdkd,

There’s no icon “shortcode”, you can just add your icons to your content area via WordPress’ insert media feature. Makes it much easier to add your own custom icons, or use the ones included with the theme.

Are you talking about the homepage slider? You can set a fixed pixel height for that slider in your Theme Options. Right now it’s 400px, but you can set it to any height amount (in pixels) if you want. Percentage values won’t work.

There’s no keyboard navigation for the slides, mostly because 99% of visitors will never use their keyboard to go through the slides. The slider is touch/swipe compatible though.

There isn’t “official” retina support for the logo, however, the easiest thing to do is to just upload a 2x logo for your site. It will still look nice on 1x monitors as well.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

xdkd

Thanks! Great theme!

Hi. I Have a problem with page Our team. Maybe you can give me html-code for three columns, as in your example in.

2winFactor

Hi Aplay,

Sure, here’s what I entered in the html view in the WYSIWYG editor.

http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=twgvXBQW

Of course, you’ll want to change those image links to your own. Alternatively, you can always load the xml file included with the download to load all the dummy content from the demo site as well. Then just delete the stuff you don’t want to use.

thanks a lot

is possible left menu (tour page) like this ?: http://www.zurb.com/services

thanks

2winFactor

Hi Juanrane,

There’s no left sidebar option for the theme at the moment. However, you could make a new template file with a left sidebar and add a custom menu there to create a “tour” section.

Andre

Is the contact form editable from the admin panel. Similar to the Contact Form 7 Plugin?

2winFactor

Hi Dgtldre,

The contact form that comes with the theme is very basic. If you’re looking for something more complex, I would suggest using the contact form 7 plugin to create your contact form.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Hi, Andre! Can i insert a 3D window from https://sketchfab.com/ to the portfolio page slideshow http://themewich.com/district/?portfolio=mide-century-illustration or to the blog page slideshow http://themewich.com/district/?page_id=7 ?

2winFactor

The portfolio and blog page slideshows need to be images or a vimeo/youtube url. If you wanted to use something like that, you’d either need to embed it in the content area or make some modifications to the theme to get that to work.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Andre, a few more questions. 1) Can the portfolio page have 4 columns? 2) Can the portfolio images have a larger size? 3) Does the portfolio page support pagination for each category? 4) Can you set the number of portfolio items per page? 5) Do you plan on adding any more blog or portfolio styles?

Some major features that are missing for me is a slider for the portfolio items on the front page. Also need a slider for the blog items on front page. Something similar to this theme (http://themes.orange-idea.com/?theme=builder). Can widgets be placed in for these items? Any chance this could be added soon? Thanks

2winFactor

Hi Brian_s,

1) Only a 3 column layout is supported in the portfolio currently. I’m working on adding more layout options in coming updates.

2) Sure, you can change those image sizes in functions.php, for instance if you wanted them taller. If you wanted the individual portfolio images to stretch full-width, then you’d need to make some modifications to the theme.

3) Yep, you can choose either classic pagination or infinite scroll on the portfolio categories.

4) Yes, you just enter a number you want in the Theme Options panel.

5) Not at the moment, any requests?

I’m currently working on adding a shortcode to display the latest posts, but that will likely come in an update sometime next week. As for a slider, I’m not sure what you mean by “slider for the portfolio items” or “Slider for the blog pages”? You can add slideshows anywhere you want in your site, so you could add static slideshows of your portfolio items if you want.

Andre

Default-user

Thanks Andre. What I mean by portfolio and blog slider is the example I provided in the orange-idea Builder theme. That slider on the front page shows 4 portfolio items and then you can scroll to see more. Same concept for blog items.

2winFactor

That’s not a feature that’s included with the theme. I’m going to be adding a shortcode to display the latest blog posts in the next update, should be early next week.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre
