Prepurchase questions:

1. Can you add a video to the home slider? 2. I would be upgrading from Office, is there a lot of work that I would have to do to make the transition? I see from previous questions that the Testimonials, staff, FAQs, etc are the same as Office, so it would just transition automatically, correct? 3. In Office I never quite figured out how to add a video on the slider since the Homepage builder has a video option for the code, however, I would like both, photos and videos not just either or. 4. Can you completely remove title pages for ALL pages? 5. I like how I can display my images at the top of the page for each page that has the Slider Option enabled in Office, however, I HATE that it attaches ALL the pictures on that page and there is no way to select which picture to display at the top. I would like to just show the Featured Image at the top and NOT every other picture on the page, is that possible with Econo? 6. I would like to have a section like the FAQs or Services in Office where I can custom add images for each tab, is that something possible with not a lot of customization, and something you could help me with?

Sorry, too many questions but I want to buy this theme, just need to make sure I can make those changes.

Eagerly awaiting your response, as I am ready to move forward if all is attainable.

Hi there,

1. SliderRevolution most definitely allows for video, check out the plugin we use on this theme here: http://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380 – it’s included free.

2. It shouldn’t be much work. The only thing I’ve renamed is the portfolio category taxonomy, so you will have to re-ad your categories (sorry). And of course you’ll have to quickly setup the homepage as described in the docs ;)

You’ll also want to do some tweaks since the portfolios do work a bit different in terms of what you can do (you can do more)

But in general your posts should all remain.

3. You can definitely do that with this theme. You can position the video anywhere on the slide you want or even full-width.

4. You can disable the heading for any page via the meta option.

5. In office you can just install the following plugin to exclude any images – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gallery-metabox/ – it’s really handy plugin.

In this theme though, you can add a slider to any page, but you would control it via the Slider Revolution dashboard so you have full control.

Then you add the shortcode in the correct meta field for the page.

6. There aren’t any vertical tabs built-into this theme for that sort of thing. But it might be something I could consider adding support for if more people request it.

I hope this helps!

ps: This theme is largely based on my last theme Ultra (but with a new homepage interphase for choosing the layout sections order) so you can view those videos and might give you a better idea of how it all basically works: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHWJAqf5oydSffDYS0ohMW85I8vaKq3JH

We’ll be making the Econo videos soon!

Default-user

Fantastic!! Sounds like everything except the vertical tabs is attainable so I’m going to be buying this! Thanks so much for your thorough explanation! :-)

WPExplorer

If you have any post-purchase questions just let me know at the support site, I’m glad to assit.

Will do.. I installed it but it’s a little more work than I can do right now so I’m a little disappointed (not at you, simply at the fact that I have to wait to have this awesome site!!)

Thanks again!

WPExplorer

If you haven’t uploaded the sample data and are starting fresh I would recommend it, might speed things up a lot ;)

Otherwise, there shouldn’t be a whole lot to do switching from Office. So if you have anything you think is taking too long then it should just let me know, maybe I have a tip ;)

Best luck Marius and thanks for the purchase!

Hey WPExplorer,

I submitted a support request at your site yesterday and a follow up this morning. Hoping you can get me on my way with this great template. The sample data doesn’t appear to include the FAQ jquery filter that is present in the demo (the list of faq categories above the actual faq list). When you click on a faq category, it switches the faqs below to faqs in that category. Same for services samle pages. I’m hoping this is a quick fix – such as a short code perhaps that need to be added to the page?

I appreciate your quick response to this. I’ve got a tight deadline and need to move on this.

Thanks!

WPExplorer

Pretty sure I’ve responded to your ticket once before. I will have a look again today.

It’s possible your site didn’t upload all the sample data. To add the post type with filter is very very simple. I’ll link to a video in a sec.

Thanks WPEXplorer for straightening this out for me. my apologies for not marking the ticket “open” so you actually knew there was a new post ;). For all others, It seems that my dbase did not make the connections between the faqs and their categories – as stated, probably a hiccup in the import function. Thanks again WPExplorer for your quick reply and this awesome theme! :)

WPExplorer

No problem dude! You’re site is already looking cool with that custom background! I just want to make sure we’re responding in a timely manner to everyone. I’ll make that notice more prominent ;)

best wishes!

hay there, very excellent theme. thank you for this. i am trying to change “Portfolio” to read “Machines” at least in the breadcrumbs where people can see it… is this possible? thanks again! aa

Yep it’s in the theme panel – And it changes everything even the theme option labels ;)

Thanks for the purchase friend, best luck with your project!

hello again. still working with this great theme. what is your suggestion on how to control my gallery nested inside “Post Media Alternative”-if i would like to change the thumbnail size of one image, and center it?

[gallery link=”file” ids=”10608”]

WPExplorer

If you are just using 1 image why don’t you just use the featured image?

You can add the following parameters for controlling image sizes:

img_height and img_width

example:

[gallery link=”file” ids=”10608” img_height=”500” img_width=”500”]

WPExplorer

You can look at functions/shortcodes/wp-gallery.php for the function that controls this.

Default-user

ok, great. —if i dont want to use the featured image, say on a service item… how do i get rid of the remaining box at the top where it wants the featured image to be?

is there a custom field i could use, with value “false” or something?

WPExplorer

Oh I see the issue. I need to simply update the template file the issue is I simply added the styling to the container around the media section rather then inside the php statement. It’s a quick fix if you want to open a ticket.

Default-user

sure i will open a ticket…

Hi, great theme.

A suggestion is to make the tabs on row 5957 in style.css fetch the color set in the theme panel instead. Same goes for the toggle. The blue color is great, but for those choosing another color it’s a little bit annoying to manually change in the style.css.

WPExplorer

That was my intention! I must have forgotten ;( I’ll be sure to update this in the next version, thank you for letting me know Jabbin!

Do like your theme was about to buy but just checked the PageSpeed and YSlow the score was bad :(

WPExplorer

The theme has been well optimized for speed…The reason the scores might be low is because you need to remember a demo has a lot more content for demo purposes only. Also WPEngine (my host) doesn’t do certain things that page speed considers bad (minifying HTML/scripts…etc) but that’s because they have a very effectice CDN/Caching system. On your server you might use a plugin like W3 Total Cache and see very different results on Google Page Speed.

Have a look here: http://cl.ly/image/0t0T2Z1S0i2k

1.024seconds for repeat view is insanely fast!

You need to really read the Google PageSpeed and YSlow results because the actual score can be useless.

Hi AJ I have just purchased the theme and my website is http://omegasoul.com/. I want it to publish on mobile version too. Is there any option?

Thanks in advance!

WPExplorer

Hit here,

Thanks for the purchase! Did you purchase on another account?

Unfortunately I don’t understand the question “publish on mobile version”....

Please open a ticket for further explanation if you want assistance – http://wpexplorer.org

Default-user

Okay, let me explain..

The website URL I have shared above is not working properly on smartphones. It seems like everything is mess up. So I want this website to be open in full version on smartphones or any other mobile devices.

Will you please help me out now?

WPExplorer

Strange…

You can disable the responsiveness via the admin panel. It should be the first option on the General tab.

hey there, very nice theme! Thank you for this!

Call me blind, but after purchasing it i was searching now for about an hour to find the documentation and sample data. These were neither in the downloaded folder, nor there is a link in the theme overview nor i can find anything on google. After trying these standard ways which normally helped me for other themes, i’m lost. Could you open my eyes and help me?

Thanks a lot.

WPExplorer

Hi there,

Glad you like it ;)

ThemeForest recently changed the way the downloads work. When you go to download your purchased file make sure to click on “main files” here you will find the sample data, documentation, license..etc.

Thanks for the purchase!

Default-user

Got it! Thanks a lot :)

Hi AJ, For some reasons my portfolio excerpt’s aren’t showing up when I add the (excerpt=”true”) into the portfolio shortcode. Any thoughts?

Hi.

I’d like to know if this theme allows to set individual backgrounds for pages or posts in the content section.

Also I’d like to know if it could be possible to set the content background color to transparent in order to see the web image background as the content background.

Regards.

WPExplorer

Hi,

- There isn’t any built-in functionality for changing the background per-post/page. This can be achieved easily via CSS or a plugin, so best to leave the extra bloat out of the theme ;)

- You can remove the main content background via CSS or give it an opacity using rgba colors. Would be a simply CSS mod.

Hi dear WPExplorer!

I’ve made xml file import, but got some erroes like “failed to upload….” and my site doesn’t looks good… Please, help me to make it look like template:) digital-kit.ru

WPExplorer

Hi there,

From what I can see it looks good to me! Remember though the WordPress import doesn’t include certain things…You still have to set your menu locations, add your widgets and define your homepage under Settings->Reading.

The error “failed to upload” is a server issue – either an image could not be added or your server timed out during the upload process – I suggest setting your homepage and menu locations and test from there first.

Thanks for the purchase!

Default-user

Your template looks really good!

I will try to upload files once more

But i’m sure that when users purchase theme, it should be the same as on screenshots. For example my Opencart template was equal to live demo (contain all necessary files and modules from the live demo)

Default-user

Dear WP Explorer, i’ve left a ticket on your site. Hope for response)

I should be able to get to them today, yesterday was a holiday ;)

Hi there,

Probably a really easy answer to this but…. Is there a way to change the colour of the navigation menu, i can change the rollover colour but NOT the “Dark Grey”. Need to change the dark grey to a green if possible.

How do i got about this?

WPExplorer

You just have to add some custom CSS to your site…example:

/*make navbar black*/
#navigation, #navigation ul { background: #000; }
Default-user

Where do i put the custom css?

One more question – is there anyway to centre the text in the navigation bar?

WPExplorer

When making customizations the best is to add your CSS in a custom CSS plugin or via a child theme.

To center your navigation text you’ll have to make your li elements “display: inline-block” and add a text-align: center; to the main nav div.

Please note that customizations aren’t included in the cost of the theme. For the budgeted cost of a template compared to a web designer we can’t offer these free services. If you don’t know your way around the code I suggest you hire a freelancer. ThemeForest’s new “MicroLancer” site might be a good place to start!

Ok, thanks

I am having trouble setting up the pricing columns. I want to set up a 1/3 pricing table, three items (pricing Table Three Items). What exactly are the shortcode settings for such? I’m pretty experienced, but everything I’m trying to get them to line up in a row just isn’t working. Your help would be appreciated. Even looking in code and online help resources isn’t helping.

Thank you!

WPExplorer

Make sure the last pricing column has the parameter position=”last” that removes the right margin so it can fit inline.

I’ll be updating the theme soon to include the latest version of my shortcodes plugin which has a better inserter, but if you want it now you can always download from here: – http://www.wpexplorer.com/symple-shortcodes/

I read index and watched videos and can’t figure out how to have a page with sidebar listing services as buttons.

I’ll I see is an option to add shortcode for service icons.

Please follow the support guidelines and open a ticket. Thanks!

I’m loving this theme! Working on developing a site right now based on it. One thing I can’t seem to get my head around is how to re-label the custom post types in the dahsboard – i.e. – ‘Portfolio’. I gave it the custom label in the menu editor so it show up on the site menu with the new label… but the dashboard still shows Portfolio. How can I change that?

WPExplorer

Glad you like it!

It’s very simple. Please have a look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4k8mumjnn4

This video is for my Ultra theme, but it’s essentially the same process.

Is there a place to add a favicon logo?

WPExplorer

Not built-in. There is a lot of plugins out there for this so I don’t add the option. Here is a popular one: http://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-favicon/

That said…you know you can just drop your favicon.ico in your server’s root directory and modern browsers will find it ;)

Great template. It looks really bad in IE8 though! I just have the standard template installed with no additional CSS which looks fine in FireFox and Chrome. What could be wrong with my setup since it is compatible in IE8? It is not just a couple small things, the whole site is messed up.

WPExplorer

Hey there…a couple notes:

1 – The theme should be working just fine in IE8. I just re-checked to make sure nothing is wrong with my demo and it’s rendering just fine. In fact I even added some tweaks for IE8. Can you double check my live demo to make sure it’s not just your site?

2. Please comment with the profile which you purchased the theme with to make sure you are an actual customer – thanks! (often people download illegally then have all sorts of issues).

If you can contact me via my profile page with the account used to purchase the theme and share with me your URL I can help troubleshoot any issues!

Glad you like the theme ;)

Default-user

I didn’t think to check your demo, which looks correct in IE. I will contact you on your profile page. Thanks!

WPExplorer

Got your email, thanks dude! We’ll get this issue resolved soon, hopefully ;)
