Hello feeleep Once again thank you very much for your theme which is amazing. Just a small issue I want to enable home page navigation but every time I try to do it I get a 404 Error. Page not found. Is there something I can do to fix it? http://vanda51.net/ Thank you in advance for your reply.
feeleep

I will be glad to take a look and eventually fix it up if you create a temp Admin account for me. You can send login credentials to my private email address; click on my avatar and use that mini contact form in sidebar of my profile page. Please include brief description of a problem!

Did you update WordPress to 3.4.2? If not – do it then check whether the problem persist.

*excuse me is it compatible with, seo all-in-one pack, STT2 (search tagging term2), and wp affiliate plug in. thanks for response, sanwaronly (indonesian newbie)

feeleep

I didn’t test this theme to work with wp affiliate but I’m sure it works fine with all-in-one SEO pack.

is it permitted to edit this theme.

feeleep

You can make it fit your needs if required but it has to be clearly stated that original author’s work has been modified. I guess that’s according to WP’s GPL .

Hey bought the theme, just have a few questions. On my site, 1- how do I round the edges on theme, like the main page mine comes out with squared edges whereas yours are rounded. 2- How do I get the “may we also suggest” to show up on my products 3-Is it possible to have a video clip preview if im selling footage? 4- On the registering for new user how do I input my own logo and my own icon on for the site, it keeps showing the down arrow/ 5- Last thing, when i try to edit the header this comes up: “call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function ‘downloadshop_admin_header_style’ not found or invalid function name in /home/content/60/9874160/html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 403”

Thanks in advance!

feeleep

1. It depends on your Browser! FF, Safari and Chrome support rounded corners for a long time while IE has “invented” rounded stuff in version 9.

2. Tag your products! If currently browser product shares one or more tags with any other product in database – it’ll automatically show up as possibly related product.

3. Yes, you could embed it to product description or provide a link that will open in Colorbox (http://www.techotronic.de/plugins/jquery-colorbox/opening-links-colorbox/)

4. Open “sofa_downloadshop/images” folder and look up for a file named “site_logo.png”. Overwrite with your own but keep file name and type (PNG).

5. That’s strange, I’ll have to take a look … but even if you go edit Header it won’t have any effect because Header Image or Header Text will not be displayed with this theme. Header text is “replaced” with site logo that can be uploaded via theme Options while Header Image is “replaced” with NIvo-slider.

I’m getting ready to purchase. What if you have files that are pretty large for a single item? Is it possible to set multi-part downloads for an item? Thanks!

feeleep

No, multi-part downloads of a single are not possible. You might want to truncate file to volumes or something and thus enter your main product with several variations. By doing so, each volume (variation) MUST have a price assigned to it.

Question about payment gateways; Thanks for your great themes. I have a question about payment gateways. Here in the netherlands we use ‘IDeail’ as a payment methode. I want to implement that in this theme. Because I like easy. there are some plugins available for ecommerce in wordpress available. Is there any known wordpress ecommerce plugin wich use the same mothode of payment so I can use this as a start if you know what I mean? Below link shows teh available plugins? https://www.sisow.nl/algemeen/implementatie.

thanks in advance for your reply. Peter

feeleep

This theme has e-commerce built-in which means any eventual plugin will have to be compatible with its e-commerce. I honestly doubt that someone has made an exclusive plugin for DownloadShop theme :(

So, the only way to make iDeail work with it is to implement it as new payment gateway. I guess there are experts to hire and help with implementation. My schedule is booked and I can’t take more side work by the end of this year. Beside, I’ve never worked with iDeail’s API . You might want to take a look at http://jobs.freelanceswitch.com and find developer.

Hi, what is the route to bring “sofa_downloadshop_dummy.xml” via ftp into the directory.

feeleep

This file is supposed to be used by WordPress’ Import tool only (see Dashboard, Tools > Import). Why would you like to “bring it into the directory”? No matter what, FTP clients are used to transfer files from a local drive to server so I guess that would be an answer to your question irregardless the purpose.

Hi Feeleep,

I am looking to use this theme for marathon photography. So just wanted to check if the functionality I need is here:

-Multiple image upload (thousands), is there a detailed description of the uploading process, can you just upload the image or does it have to be zipped? -Can I give other photographers access to upload their images -buyer will search for their race number, if file upload name is that number can it automatically be found or do we have to add a tag for each image. -does paypal take a fee for transaction (sorry never used) -I know buyer have to signup for this site, but do they also need to signup for paypal also? -I am in Dubai is the paypal functionality still working outside of US

sorry these might be obvious questions, but finding it hard to ‘find’ the answers.

Cheers Barry

feeleep

I’m afraid it wont be possible…
bulk upload in that manner doesn’t make sense, his theme does require a file for sale to be uploaded for each product individually. And yes, it has to be zipped!

This theme doesn’t work as a commission sale shop so other photographers will not be able to participate on the way you mentioned.
Search does include title, product description (content) and product tags so if you put that ID or number in either of these three – product will be found for sure.

PayPal does take fee – just like any other payment gateway :) Nothing is free my friend… However, your buyers do not need a PayPal account in order to be able to make the purchase; PP is capable to process ANY major credit card too, it’s a serious payment gateway.

As for PP functionality in UAE , please take a look at the following info page to be sure: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/

Hopefully it helps!

Hello feeleep.

Purchased your theme last week, very easy to customize and works beautifully, thank you. I’ve added features to also use as a portfolio: http://lightbourne.com/live/

We are book designers and would like to offer exclusive cover design themes that we can mark as “sold” after purchase. They can remain on the site with the sold mark. It would be nice for users to keep in their favorites and as an example of our work. Is there a way to flag a download as purchased? If not, is this something I can hire you to code for us?

Best, Shannon Lightbourne, Inc.

feeleep

I guess that’s doable but the only problem is my schedule; it’s booked by the end of this year and no way for me to accept more work. Maybe you could try to find developer at http://jobs.freelanceswitch.com . My deepest apologies for not being able to help you with!!!

Hello again feeleep.

I’ve just gone live with the site so the url is now: http://lightbourne.com. Since I’ve installed WP in a subfolder (/live) I’m now receiving errors with some php files looking for wp-config.php. Can I run a redirect function or can you help me with how to recode the template php files affected? So far the shopping cart is the only one I’ve found, but I can’t fully test until cart_handler.php is redirected to root where the wp-config.php is now.

This is the error received: Warning: require(/home/light123/public_html/live/wp-config.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/light123/public_html/live/wp-content/themes/lightbourneinc/cart_handler.php on line 7

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ’/home/light123/public_html/live/wp-config.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/light123/public_html/live/wp-content/themes/lightbourneinc/cart_handler.php on line 7

I’m checking out the wp.org forums to learn how/if I can redirect to root from the subfolder.

Best, Shannon Lightbourne, Inc.

feeleep

The question here is whether you have properly migrated site from test to production environment properly. There’s nothing to be changed in template files! WordPress Dashboard has Tools section and when migrating site across folders or domains you should use Export/Import tool. When you export your site XML doc is created. Once you install WordPress to production site, use Import tool to “inflate” database with data stored in exported XML .

Thanks for the quick help feeleep.

Yes, I moved the site correctly. Did it again this morning as a complete new install/then import just in case. This time I first moved the wp.config.php on a clean WP install (checked that all was working in base themes), then imported child theme/content/xml files just in case that was the issue. Same result when I tried shopping cart. Everything else is a go and moved perfectly, but the shopping cart has conflict with the wp-config.php location in root. The php code in the file (cart_handler.php) codes path for wp-config.php to the wp install folder (line 7—see error message). I need to let the file know to go to the root folder to find wp-config.php. So, can I alter the .htaccess file in the wp subfolder to let the template files that need direct access to the wp-config.php to go to root?

Thanks for the tip on job site to help with the “single” purchase/sold flagging. I’ve contacted a developer I know that might be available sooner. If not, I still may want to get on your list . . . might be worth the wait since you know your theme best.

Thanks, Shannon

feeleep

For what reason did you move “wp-config.php”?!? This file contains all the constants and database connections that refer to an old site!
You need to create new database, install WordPress to the root of your domain and by installation select newly created database! Forget about moving wp-config file around, that’s not needed. New wp-config.php will be populated with required info once WordPress is installed. After that simply login to brand new Admin, from Dashboard select Tools > Import and browse to XML that was exported from an “old” site. That’s all.

Just moved the wp-config.php file back into the subfolder and all is well. I was using directions for moving a testing site (which I usually do) instead of a new subfolder install which was what I did this time since I built the whole site from scratch over the weekend I didn’t really need a testing site.

Everything is great. I’ll contact you if I can’t find another developer for the exclusive product purchase function.

Thank you!

I was seeing if there was anyway for my Vimeo video take the place of my feature image in the product page. I tried and just receive a link. Thank You for your help.

here is my website www.onenessvideos.com

feeleep

I’m afraid that’s not possible, featured image can not be replaced with video file. As you already know featured image can be set from Product add/edit screen via “Featured Image” panel (sidebar). It doesn’t allow setting up a video instead of static image tho.

i went to up load the theme and it gave me an error

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

what do i need do i need to do to upload this ?

feeleep

You’ll have to unzip downloaded package to a local drive first. Inside of unzipped archive is theme’s installation file.

Is it possible for this theme to pull the downloadable files from a pre-existing database so I don’t have to re-upload thousands of files? Can I somehow change the source code to grab the actual file from a database that I already have on my server in another folder? I would like to create the product page, but not spend the transfer time again uploading my items when they are already uploaded. Can I create an item and somehow configure the theme to grab the file from an outside database after the buyer pays?

Thank you

feeleep

Everything is possible with WordPress, however your request includes things that (at this point) I am not able to provide the solution for. It sounds like theme’s functionality has to be completely rewritten. Maybe you could find developer at http://jobs.freelanceswitch.com ... and find out the volume of work, estimate cost, etc.
Sorry for not being able to say more!

Hi, I am considering buying this shop, only I want to sell music. My own music. But, I would need an option that possible buyers can listen to a part of the mp3 files before they buy.

Would that be a possibility in this shop?

Regards, Ray

feeleep

It has been mentioned a couple of times already in this section…
Yes, that’s possible but you need to be aware that there is no way to pre-listen to mp3 in place of product image! Each product does require usage of featured image (as a visual representation) while any eventual audio or video preview belongs to product description!
I have tested “oEmbed HTML5 Audio” plugin with this theme and I’m sure it may be used for making “preview” of mp3 files.
