is there a way to change the text size? all texts including the Menu buttons has very small text size, is there a better solution to it? what is the width of the templte? can the width be increased? just looking for solutions to make the texts and everything else slighly bigger, full width layout?

that is the only thing that is stopping me from buying this template.

feeleep

You can increase font size of text (including navigation) via CSS . Layout itself relies on 960px grid which is not responsive so once again you’ll have to play around with CSS in order to make it wider (or full screen width).

Can i sell music with this theme? i will like people to listen to tracks before deciding to purchase. Thanks

feeleep

Yes, the same question has been answered a couple of times already…
You can sell whatever you want as long as it is a ZIP . So zip up your audio files and everything will be fine.
A plugin named (and tested with this theme) “oEmbed HTML5 Audio” can be used for audio preview.

Hi Feelep,

Good day!

I’m looking for an eCommerce theme and though this is custom eCommerce, I’m still very interested as far as the layout and presentation is concern. I have been looking through your screenshots and the live demo for 3 days already and I believe this is what I need.

I do have few inquiries though and hope you could fill me in: 1. On the demo, I cannot BUY or review the cart. Do you have some login I could use for testing?

2. I am probably missing this on the screenshots, but can you let me know if from the Admin, there is some sort of statistics with regards to the product’s performance?

3. I have seen on the backend screenshot about Payment settings, there’s something there about “Coupon code”, but all I’m seeing is checkbox. Where are the coupon codes added and how does it look like when purchased/front-end?

4. Lastly, do you have a DEV guide or something with regards to your available function/hooks that we could reuse? Especially about adding new payment gateway.

Hoping to hear from you.

Thanks!

feeleep

OK, here we go…

1. In order to be able to buy something or bookmark product of your interest, you will have to register first. So I do not provide username and pass because that should be a part of theme presentation; create your own login user and pass.

2. No stats of that kind, sorry.

3. discount codes are entered via theme options. you can have as amny as required, each one representing discount percentage. Of course, you’ll have to find the way to share these codes (newsletter, campaign, flyers, ???)

4. PayPal payment relies on Emran’s class (http://goo.gl/Oz8Zx). If you need to implement 2CO or Authorize these two are additional classes available with the same package. The point of the story is how to actually save payment results to your local database. An existing PayPal example in this theme can be used as a reference point.

Hi Feelep,

Good day!

1. When clicking on your demo, the signup/sign in doesn’t work for some reason it turns blank. I have to manually right-click and open in new tab. I have tried it and it works.

2. The coupon is not visible in any of the screenshots, but I guess with your description, that should be perfect! Thanks!

3. Figured I’d have to go through your current Paypal implementation, which is fine!

Thanks for the response. I’m purchasing this theme in a day or two. :)

Hello there,

I am having trouble with my homepage. I signed in today and have nothing on my homepage. None of my widgets are showing up, my slider and featured products are missing. For months I have had a working homepage and now I have nothing. Originally I had to do a redirect to a new page that I made as my homepage because the slider never worked on the one that was made for it but worked on other pages. Now I have nothing and am wondering why this would happen all of a sudden? And of course how to make my homepage work again.

Thanks!

Edit- Ok, so I just took off my redirect and now my homepage appears! Which is awesome! But do you have any ideas why this would happen all of a sudden? I have had a redirect to another page in the site as a homepage for months and then one day my site decides it no longer wants to use it? Very weird! If you have any ideas let me know!

feeleep

OK, just wanted to mention that slider will work on index page only. Otherwise, if you select some other (static) page to be your home page – it won’t be there.

As for the problem of “disappearing” ... well, I’m afraid that the only thing I can say is: strange! There’s no way to just switch home page by “the holy ghost”, user action is required. So you either switched it non-intentionally or – which is less possible – your site is hacked.

I bought your theme and it is good. How can i sell as TL (not dollar, different currency)

feeleep
Are you sure that your currency is supported by PayPal? No matter what you can always add new currency if you like…
1. open “functions.php” for edit and go to line #441, there’s a list of default currencies…

<select name="entrycurrency" id="entrycurrency">
    <option value="EUR" <?php if ( $aOptions[ 'entrycurrency' ] == "EUR" ) { echo 'selected="selected"'; } ?>>Euro</option>
    <option value="AUD" <?php if ( $aOptions[ 'entrycurrency' ] == "AUD" ) { echo 'selected="selected"'; } ?>>Australian Dolars</option>
    <option value="USD" <?php if ( $aOptions[ 'entrycurrency' ] == "USD" ) { echo 'selected="selected"'; } ?>>U.S. Dolars</option>
    <option value="CAD" <?php if ( $aOptions[ 'entrycurrency' ] == "CAD" ) { echo 'selected="selected"'; } ?>>Canadian Dolars</option>
    <option value="GBP" <?php if ( $aOptions[ 'entrycurrency' ] == "GBP" ) { echo 'selected="selected"'; } ?>>British Pounds</option>
</select>
2. In order to add new currency, you would either replace some of existing ones or append new.

<select name="entrycurrency" id="entrycurrency">
/* existing currencies list */
<option value="CUR" <?php if ( $aOptions[ 'entrycurrency' ] == "CUR" ) { echo 'selected="selected"'; } ?>>New Currency</option>
</select>
... replace “CUR” with your own currency shortcode and “New Currency” with the name of currency.
3. Save “functions.php” and re-upload to server (FTP) if edited on local machine.

As of right now when a customer does a search the results are limited to 10 per page. On the site it doesn’t look natural as there are two empty spaces at the bottom right, (it looks like there should be something there) is there a way to change the amount of results returned per page when a search is done?

feeleep

Dashboard,
Settings > Reading >> Blog pages show at most : NN posts
...where NN is the number of posts per page.

is Sofatheme compatible with woo commerce ? What is the commerce plugin to install ? thank you

There’s no need for that, DownloadShop theme has e-commerce built-in. I guess it won’t work with woo-commerce.

I use WPML extension to have different language with the site. have mysite.com for England, mysite.com/fr for france, mysite.com/de for deutschland and mysite.com/it for Italy. Question : how can I do to have different homepage base on your with short codes ? because I don’t find home in page section. Thank you for your help FeeLeep

feeleep

I can’t say for sure how WPML handles shortcoded stuff, did you try to seek for an answer at WPML support forum or Google? Somehow I feel that this question has been answered many times already.
As I recall, with qTranslate plugin users need to add a chunk of code (localization string) behind square brackets…

Hello I really love your template, but I am having problems with the checkout part. When someone clicks on the PayPal button to pay for the items nothing happens. I checked my Paypal account and all the limits and bank account is verified. Also I made sure I didn’t make a mistake when putting in my account email for PayPal in the payment options tab. I was hoping you could help. My website is onenessvideos.com. I really appreciate your time and effort!

feeleep

I have tried to register and obtain password for your site but it has never been sent back to me. So please check whether you have new user registered. If you do – there’s another problem: WP can’t send email to newly registered users.
So, because I did not receive password (yes, I have tried to recover it too!) I wasn’t able to make the purchase and check out what’s going on with PayPal. I’m sure there’s some javascript error that prevents proper redirect but will be able to say more as soon as you ensure Admin credentials. Please, feel free to create a temp Admin account for me and send login details to my private email address.

yes Feeleep I already look google and WPML , what are the shorts codes for home page ? thank you

feeleep

What shortcodes are you taking about? Theme Options allow you to kinda customize home page appearance and content, could you please be more specific?

Looking to purchase…. I want to use the most current wp-ecommerce plugin. Can I use the most current plugin version or is the plugin hard coded into this theme?

feeleep

e-commerce part is built into theme files. With this theme it can’t be considered as “regular” shopping cart since we deal with downloadable files. These files are assigned to user profile only upon verified payment.
So the answer would be: using wp-ecommerce plugin might lead to unexpected errors.

I am looking for a way to create a Codecanyon style site where by users can register and upload their own files and sell them. It must be able to split the sale price by percentage to me and the author too.

Can this theme do that ?

Regards, Justine Smithies

feeleep

No, this theme doesn’t work that way. I can understand what you are up to but in that case things are getting far more complicated.

@justinesmithies – https://themeshive.com/theme/wpforest/ is what you are wanting. But it is crap…and overpriced crap lol.

Good luck with your search @justinesmithies, Im in the same boat.

At least they could change design, it’s too obvious that TF was the target. As for the functionality I didn’t have a chance to see Dashboard.

Please, I can’t work no more with your template. Help us. Last user gone right was 1 year ago. Is Paypal change something? Do I active IPN on my paypal profile? all the things relative paypal are in the gateways folder? can you give me an updated one? many thanks, and do you have an email to write to directly thanks

feeleep

What exactly is the problem mate? I can’t read it out of your post… “Last user gone right was 1 year ago” relates to which part of theme? PayPal did not change anything in API for over a year and NO, you don’t have to activate IPN. If you need to change anything regarding PayPal, you’ll be able to find all required files in “gateways” folder of your theme copy.
All of updates – if any – can be found in theme’s Changelog (see theme’s page at Themeforest), be sure your theme is up to date.

For a case you have any tech difficulties feel free to create a temp Admin account and send login credentials to my private email address. I’ll be glad to assist!

Hi There Feeleep,

Loving the template, even better than I first thought. Your manuals have been good to me, however I am facing just one issue at present – The nivo-slides plugin included are not auto sliding. Any suggestions for me?

I have googled it, seen some solutions that have worked for others but I am a bit amateur I think t follow. My site is www.shipphotogallery.com

Thanks bud!

feeleep

Dashboard, Appearance > Sofa DownloadShop Options
...find under “Featured Posts slider” screen an option named “Auto slide” and be sure it’s un-ticked :)

I did buy this theme. This Theme design good. But have many error. I Can’t use this theme. You need update and many fix. I want easy theme. I did work during 1month, but I can’t use this theme..

feeleep

Well, at least you could let me know what’s the problem. When you state something like “but have many error” or “you need update and many fix” then I expect you to support these statements with arguments.
This is the place where people do that and I’m here to help. I never heard anyone leaving this page without being satisfied with my assistance!
However, if you decided to give this theme up then I’ll respect your decision.

Good evening,

I’m currently looking to replace my current eCommerce WP theme that had its support dropped only a few days after purchase. I sell digital video tutorials. I have a long list of of questions, but I only start with a few:

1) You list that it can be anything as long as it’s zipped. Can it be an RAR archive? I’ve noticed considerably better compression when packaging mp4 videos versus using a zip.

2) You list Paypal as a payment gateway, but do you support others (particularly Google Wallet). While +75% of my customers use Paypal, some opt out in favor of Google Wallet.

3) Most of my tutorials are really large (it can be 3+ hours of HD footage), what kind of experience do you have with your theme and large files?

Thank you in advance!

feeleep

OK, here we go…

1) It can be rar if you zip it up :) ZIP is an oldest, the most widely used cross platform compression utility. RAR is better but not so “famous”.
2) By default PayPal only is supported and if you need other payment gateways you’ll have to implement – including GWallet
3) That might be around 2 gigs, correct? Well, to be honest, I’m not sure. If you have dedicated hosting and unlimited file size for upload that could be all right. But if not, it’s good idea to talk to your hoster and see whether they can enable 2+ gigs upload via http.

Thank you for your time and answers, feeleep.
