Hello, Before I purchase this theme I just want to make sure that the 3 icons and text right below the hompage slider can be made into clickable links to other pages on the site and can there be 4 icons with text instead of 3. Please let me know if this is possible! thank you

obox
obox Author

Hi Brian, you can have 2, 3 or 4 columns where those icons sit. You can also enable the read more link to turn them in to links as it’s using the Obox content widget to populate ‘services’ from the services post type.

As wordpress developers, this is one of the worst themes we must have purchased ever.

Below are the list of issues we found on Day-1 of our working with the theme. I am posting these points here because I wrote an email to Obox support – to which I received the standard, template answer.

For lack of time and motivation, I am refraining from writing about numerous other issues that we faced. However, potential buyers must beware before they purchase this or any other theme from Obox.

As far as we are concerned, we are blacklisting Obox from all future purchases.

A few points for which we had to hack through the code are mentioned below. These items should have been available through the Theme Options:

Please refer to the demo link on the website: http://demo.oboxsites.com/dynamo/?use_colour=

1) Under “Portfolio” are shown 3 items / images. Under theme options we could choose only 2, 4, 8 or 12 items – there was no option available for displaying 3 items as in the demo.

2) Under “Partners” are shown 4 items. We wanted to display 3 items here and there was no way we could do this from the Theme options. It was only 2, 4, 8 or 12.

3) All items under “Partners” have a target link. Inspite of adding the URL for each of the partner items from the Theme Options, linking did not happen.

4) The headers “Partners” or “Portfolio” on the home page are encompassed in <li> elements on an unordered list <ul> which in turn has an id of “home_page_downs” as below,

<ul class=”widget-list clearfix” id=”home_page_downs”>

However in the theme that we purchased from themeforest this id was missing and so was the class – clearfix.

5) This link displays all items in the portfolio (all categories) is a 3-column display – http://demo.oboxsites.com/dynamo/portfolio-three-column/ However, displaying items present in a particular category can be displayed only in a 1-column display – http://demo.oboxsites.com/dynamo/portfolio-category/drawing/

Why can’t items in a particular product category be displayed in 3-columns?

6) The header and the bread-crumb show “Single Column” for a portfolio item – http://demo.oboxsites.com/dynamo/portfolio/soma/

There is no way to remove this other than hacking into the theme files.

7) Individual portfolio categories displayed only 10 items – what if we have more than 10? We had to remove this anomaly by hacking through the code!

Hi Dinesh,

My response to you via email was not a template response, I advised you to post a message in our dedicated support forum where you could get the best assistance for the questions you asked. You have yet to post any question in our support forum going against the advice of myself.

Obox prides itself on assisting our customers which is why we have a dedicated support forum.

Obox doesn’t build the kitchen sink in to our themes, we precisely decide on features based on customer requirements and build from there. We listen to customer feedback and often from time to time release new features in to theme updates. Dynamo and our Flatpack theme have been some of our most updated themes to-date as we listen and respond to customers needs. Therefore, not ‘everything’ is available via the theme options panel but you can do a lot with our themes utilising the theme options panel and using our Obox content widget and page template options.

I believe you’re not using the latest theme version (1.3.0) as you went ahead with hacking the theme against our advice. Therefore I can only answer your questions going off our current latest theme file. The answers below accurately describe and correlate with the functionality available within Dynamo 1.3.0;

1) On the Dynamo Homepage when ‘Widget Driven’ homepage setup is chosen, you can navigate into ‘Appearance > Widgets’ and use the Obox Content Widget to display ‘Portfolio’ and choose from a 2, 3 or 4 column layout. You can then choose the amount of portfolio items from 1 to 12.

2) On the Dynamo Homepage when ‘Widget Driven’ homepage setup is chosen, you can navigate into ‘Appearance > Widgets’ and use the Obox Content Widget to display ‘Partners’ and choose a 2, 3, 4 or 6 column layout. You can then choose the amount of partner items from 1 to 12.

3) Each individual Partner item added in the Partner custom post has a ‘link field’ which you can add a link to. Once this is set the item on the homepage links through to the link you have added on the item. Partner items are not managed by the ‘Theme Options’ panel and never have been in the past.

4) The class you’re looking for is on line 525 of style.css

5 and 6) They can be, with our demo we have to show many different ways to show layouts however it’s easy to set it to how you want and this can be found in the documentation.

7) From feedback 10 was a solid number to aim for and we found customers were easily able to make a minor change if they wanted to show more.

Note: We never recommend the hacking of themes and always advise to seek assistance in our dedicated support forum for any support questions.

Gavin – My grouse is why should I even have to go to the support forum for things which should be readily available!

For example – on my website, under Portfolio category items, why cannot I display more than 10 items? Where is the theme setting for this? Why should I even have to go to the Support forum to figure this out? What other option do you leave me other than to hack through the theme files?

Here is the live link: http://www.7infocomm.com/portfolio-category/tablets/

Why do I see only 10 items when I have added 15+ items in that portfolio category?

Unfortunately, the only way I can do this is to hack through the code!

Hi Dinesh,

There are limits to the feature set which a theme offers, I think it is clear that what you require is a little bit more with regards to the number of portfolio items which we can help with if you were to post in the support forum.

By default, most if not all themes don’t come with every feature which you’d like which is why we list all of the features on our theme page.

All the points I posted in this support forum were emailed to you at least 1 week ago. You never replied point-wise then, the way you have done now.

We purchased the theme and on day-1 of purchasing it, we couldn’t do simple things! I hope you are not saying that themeforest hosts outdated versions of your themes. This is not about theme updates – this is about basic features that should be readily available in the theme settings not being present, for which I am not left with anything other than hacking through the code.

As far as support forum is concerned – what good would that be if an option is not available in your theme settings? Are the support guys going to create those options for me. And should I be waiting for them to be available and be stuck with my project?

We update our themes on themeforest every Friday or Monday. However, you can update your theme from your WordPress dashboard in “Theme Options > Update”.

I need to be able to add text to the Partner page. I still can’t access my license code and Themeforest won’t respond to support questions. Please help and don’t tell me to ask on your forum as I can’t access it because of the above reason. You can see I bought your theme. Thanks!

Hi, looking at our demo page here – http://bit.ly/13ek8TW , where you see “This is a partners page”, is that where you’d like to add your own text? This can be done by adding it to the normal partners page template.

Hello,

Great theme by the way, I have a few questions if you don’t mind..

1. Can the slider have autoplay? 2. Can i adjust the height on the slider? 3. Can I use an image instead on colour in the title? http://demo.oboxsites.com/dynamo/team/ 3. Can each page have their own image? 4. Can I add a subtitle?
obox
obox Author

Hi Canito,

1 – Yes you can have autoplay. 2 – Yes, this can be adjusted via the CSS if you wish. 3 – There are extensive customization options for the slider where you can use images, image and text, video and text amongst others. 4 – Yes, you can add a subtitle very easily.

Hope this helps.

I’m considering purchasing Dynamo for a photography website. I like the template’s styling and apparent flexibility, but the options for displaying portfolios seem very limited with just one portfolio style and without separate gallery display capability along the lines of Prettyphoto (and distinct from the one embedded with the text in your demo site). Is that right? If so, is the the gallery compatible with NextGen galleries so I can replace the built-in photo galleries?

Hey bdeutsch, whilst we can’t test against every plugin, we’ve not heard of any challenges being faced when using the NextGen galleries plugin. – Gavin

Hi, A client of mine is using your theme and while he has managed to set up the home page properly the circular images on top are not getting linked to the respective pages ( which is happening in your demo). We are using the content widget and pulling the posts from Services category to display on the home page. Please suggest how we can get the circular thumbnails to link to their respective pages.

hi, that a great theme! before I purchase this, I just want to ask you some questions:

1/ Can I create multi-profile for one user account? How did i do it? 2/ Can I Add and Edit more field in profile.? 3/ When I buy a product, i want to add “a PIN code of product” in my profile. 4/ Show list of products I bought in my profile.

Thanks for support!

Hi Se7

I’m really sorry for such a late response.

1) Yes you can do so via WP Admin 2) This is also possible 3) There may be a plugin for this available on WooCommerce www.woothemes.com/woocommerce/ 4) This is also possible once you’ve purchased items from the store and registered a profile during checkout

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Dave

Default-user

if i purchase this theme, can you support me to do 4 issues above step by step? 4 issues above are very important with me.

Default-user

Are you sure about issue 1 (Can I create multi-profile for one user account?) let me explain you:

I have an account with email: se7louisk@gmail.com My father and mom want to use my account to buy product. When they buy, they have to fill person infomation (billing address).After they buy success, in my account must have 3 profile.1 for me, 1 for my father and 1 for my mom .foreach profile must have “a PIN code” of product purchased.

Sorry for my bad english!Thanks for your support.

obox

When a person makes a purchase, they can login with their details. If they have saved their address etc. then those details will be automatically be filled into the checkout page.

In terms of having a special PIN for each user + product, this would involve custom modifications as WooCommerce doesn’t support that kind of functionality.

For custom modifications we recommend using one of our Approved Theme Modifiers listed here: http://www.obox-design.com/approved_modifiers.cfm

Hello,

I just a question before to purchase your theme :

With your theme, is it possible to create or to have a member’s area in order to have a intranet on my website ?

Thank you for your answer and sorry for my english … !

obox

Hi Houssin

I’m really sorry for such a late response.

There are plugins available for this. They will make certain pages private which contain downloadable content etc.

What I would suggest though is that you keep your intranet separate and use a web app like Dropbox for that task instead.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Dave

Default-user

Ok, thank you for the advice.

It is a good idea to use Dropbox. Do you know if it is possible to have another site used only for intranet, but linked with corporate site (and using the same theme)?
