Friend how are you, I want to sell my vimeo private video, ebooks, photos content, can i Use this them for sell this things,

feeleep

I’m all good, thanks for asking! Hopefully you do the same!
As for the question of yours and according to what’s stated in theme’s intro, the answer is : you can sell whichever type of digital goods as long as files for sale are of ZIP archive.
Selling videos might be a prob, especially if its size goes over A LOT of megs because servers do have file upload limit. However, if you can make a deal with your hoster (increase upload limit) or use dedicated server – there shouldn’t be a prob.

I input 6 items to be shown, but only have access to include 5 items…

How can I increase the number of item choices product to more choices?

5 is okay buy maybe later I would like 9 for photos and such.

Is 5 the limit?

feeleep

Login to Admin and select:
Sofa DownloadShop Options >> Product Settings
...and enter NN into “Number of Definition Boxes per Product” input field… where NN is the number of Definition Boxes required.
Beware, you’ll have to re-save Products by doing so!

It’s good idea to enter the max number you’ll need in future (I guess 25 should be fine forever) so no need to worry about later, you can use as many as required.

5 is fine for what I’m doing right now.

By the way — I found that if I make the Menu LONG – it drops down a line, making it easy to place a 960 Logo at top! No need to change any of the codes!! WooHoo! I Like It! : http://goo.gl/4huj4

I can read you’re getting excited even more every next day :) Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad to read that!

Hey Feeleep! I love your design its awesome, great work! However I’ve installed it and followed your instructions, but I just can’t get the Permalinks to work properly. We are running IIS 7 and it is enabled for Permalinks, but when I put in / category / postname / in the custom field on wordpress, everything crashes except the home page. Stuck for ideas, please help… :/

feeleep

The most probably it’s IIS configuration problem … but where exactly – I don’t know. Maybe an error log keeps more info, did you take a look? To be honest I have never seen ANY Windows server working properly with mySQL+Apache+WordPress so I give it up long time ago.

Yeah, I thought so. Well I got it working well with “Almost Pretty Permalinks” but when you go to paypay and pay for the item, it redirects you and pops up with a message saying its ready to download in your downloads section, but nothing shows up in the download section of the users profile :( any ideas? or is that the Permalinks again?

feeleep

Uhmm, it sounds like database table is missing … can’t speak for sure. But no matter what I’m ready to take a look and help you resolve it! Will you be able to create a temp Admin account for me? That’s how I have an access to WP theme Editor and track server responses. Just drop it to my private email, thanks!

Hey Feeleep; Looking to purchase this Theme, but I was curious. Does it support the .rar format? the Items i’m looking to sell are quite large. 1-2gigs, and Zip doesnt support large file compression. Thanks.

feeleep

I did reply to your email already…

I’m afraid it wont work with how things are set by default. Files for sale MUST pass thru WordPress uploader because some other things happen in background by file upload, you can’t just avoid the procedure. I guess you’ll have to find some catalog/showcase theme and maybe connect products to e-junkie.com. Just a thought, hopefully it helps!

Like your theme!

Could I also use this theme to sell digital affiliate products as well as my own digital products?

feeleep

No affiliates because all of the files for sale MUST pass thru WordPress uploader … many things happen in the background so please be sure to follow procedure.
You can sell you digital products as long as you upload ZIPPED file!

Faleep… I absolutely love this theme and it is working well for us… Ho wever today suddenly the Author Page stopped working. Users are not able to see their purchases in their profile or even get to their profile to edit it… Can you please assist me with a fix…. site is currently www.store.breakingthelabels.com/digitaldownloads

feeleep

It can’t just suddenly stop working mate, there are no mechanical parts that might get broken! Did you install some plugin? The one that possibly manages users and their accounts?

I can’t do anything from the front-end mate, I did register and all I can do is to confirm that the problem persist. Feel free to ensure Admin credentials, I’ll be glad to take a look.

I can see the Admin profile but not the user profiles… When I tested the user profiles in the Sandbox it worked fine. I turned on the switch for the purchases to go live today and the user profiles are not working. And I am sorry I misspelled your name earlier.

feeleep

Sandbox or real mode do not have anything to do with user accounts, privileges or whatsoever. Try to disable recently installed plugins, get back to front-end, refresh and check whether the problem persist.

Feeleep… my final question and I won’t be much more of a bother. i can’t figure out how to change the Login Screen to show my company info at the stop instead of download shop. Then once it’s changed, I’m not sure how to load it to WordPress.

feeleep

No, you don’t bother mate! I’m here to help you out until problem resolved! Login screen logo can be found in “sofa_downloadshop/images/site_logo.png” so simply overwrite with your own on both local machine and server.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

I have disabled all plugins and still the problem persists. I made you an Admin so that maybe you can see the possible error.

feeleep

Problem resolved, you forgot to update “author.php” template file that was affected by the latest update!

Default-user

Hmmm… it doesn’t appear that it is fixed for the existing users and the option to update the profile is not working. Will the users have to create a new profile?

feeleep

I just have made a test and everything is fine re profile update. Here’s a screengrab: http://goo.gl/ZyIxv

I will not reply to your email in order to avoid two sided communication. No need to send both email and post the same question here once again! Thanks!

Default-user

This seems to work fine for a new profile… however I have 3 profiles that are having the same problem and they were all entered prior to the update… for Example: http://store.breakingthelabels.com/digitaldownloads/author/Sir%20Tell (Persists with the 404 Error when trying to view the profile and does not allow profile update)

The new profile (Chozen1) that I just loaded; however does allow profile view and updating.

Default-user

I will email you the user’s temporary password and user name so that you can see the issues the 3 profiles are having. I don’t want to post that info here.

feeleep

I did reply to your message today and none of two user/pass combos doesn’t allow me to login. Did you manually create those accounts (from Admin)?

Suggestion: For next update, as an admin choice, if you have time, it would be nice if Homepage Products have a small (200×150px) pop-over image of items.

Like the marketplaces have.

feeleep

Not sure I understood mate, what is pop-over supposed to be. Any reference website might be helpful. Thanks for a suggestion tho!

PosterPrints

Like on the front page of Themeforest, mouseover the thumbnail and the preview pops-up

feeleep

Ahhh, I’ve got the point now :) OK, I’ll put that to theme’s wishlist!

Hey hey, this looks good but does it allow any kind of way for me to provide free updates after a user has purchased something?

E.g. I want to use it to sell WP plugins or other code/software, but want to be able to give people free upgrades for some period of time after their purchase (6 months or so).

If this is not the case, is there a wp hook I can use to write my own little plugin to add the user’s data to a separate table when they have made a verified purchase?

feeleep

Yes it does! Each product allows you to upload file with it. Whenever newer version of a file is uploaded by certain product Edit – all the buyers will be able to download the latest version from their private downloads page.
The only thing you gotta do is to notify buyers about newer version available … I guess some sort of newsletter should be fine.

Hi, feeleep! Great theme! Is it seo optimized? Thanks

feeleep

SEO optimized term is kinda broad … search engine algorithms are constantly changing… Your site content and structure matters, keyword research is crucial, the quality of content, management of online business development campaigns, niche expertise is required, etc, etc.
If your website is new it’ll take time to get ranked regardless “optimization”.
In general, there’s no magical WP theme that will do that part of job for you.

Hi Feeleep,i would like to ask you also about the credit cards payment (receiving payment directly to the bank account) as i work with the bank directly ,is it possible to add this payment option to your downloadshop theme? is this theme matching with the bank setting requirements?Thank you

feeleep

By default only PayPal is supported. If your bank has an API and documentation for developers you should hire an expert/person capable to code things out. It’s not impossible but certain/higher level of knowledge is definitely required.

hi, feeleep,

just bought it, and seems great. But I can not always shown the 4 columns are missing below Nivo slider, after importing Dummy Data. Even had read the then manual and tried many times. the widget of ””Home Page Left Column” and so on could not appear.

Do you have and idea?

Thx

feeleep

Manuals include a chunk of sample code used by 4 columns below slider. Copy and paste to Text Widget in order to get an idea how it should look/work like.
The problem relies in fact that Importer ignores Text widgets for some reason, not sure why. And another interesting fact is that even if you import data straight to database (as an SQL file) – Text widgets won’t be there either way.

hi, feeleep,

another 2 question. i have changed the Site-Logo, but if other login in WP-login.php they see always the same “downloadshop” Logo. How can I exchange it?

Is there possible to setup some coupon only for some catologes?

Thank you.

feeleep

Yeap, login screen logo is “pulled” from “images” folder, take a look at “sofa_downloadshop/images/site_logo.png”. That file should be overwritten with your own (local machine or remote server).

As for setting up coupon codes with exception, I’m afraid that’s not possible. Coupon code doesn’t have anything to do with catalogs or individual products it rather strictly relates to basket total.

ok, Thank you…
