My client really loves this theme and we’ll probably purchase. Can I get a few things clarified first?

1.) Can I remove the grey bar/utility nav at the very top?

2.) If not, can I determine what goes in that top grey bar. For example, a username and password field and then move the about and contact etc. to footer.

2a) Can I change it from grey to white?

3.) Would it be possible for me to remove the ad banner adjacent to the main logo? I want to add a full width banner like here: http://www.gallyapp.com/tf_themes/yen_wp/

4.) Can I move the search box to somewhere else? what if we want to extend the navigation options to 8? We’ll be pushing up against the search box.

5.) Can we have the gallery open to a web page vs. a light box? I’d like the option to do both because then I would be able to create a gallery library where you click on the image and it takes you to a page where all the images are visible via the light box? Make sense?

6.) I assume it’s easy to change the fonts and colors?

Thanks much!

Hi Sadk81,

Thanks for your interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

1,2) Yep, you can check that off in the Theme Options. Completely optional.

3) Yes, that’s just a widget area. Just don’t add any widgets there and nothing will show up there.

4) Yes, you can easily hide that with a line of custom css in the Theme Options panel. I’d be happy to help you through that.

5) Not by default – that might be a little more complicated with WordPress built-in galleries. The easiest thing to do would be to just insert some images in combination with the column shortcodes, and have them link to pages of your choice.

6) There’s options to change both the fonts and colors in the Theme Options panel:

However, very specific font/color customizations may require some custom css, but everything can be accomplished without editing theme files.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Awesome! I’ll purchase this weekend then join your forum for support.

Default-user

Sorry. One last thing. Did you say it was possible to change the grey navigation to another color? And is it a widget?

The thinking is we’d change its color to white then add a username/password widget to the top like this…

Thank you for the quick response :)

2winFactor

Hi Sadk81,

The navigation is uses WordPress’ built-in navigation system, meaning you just drag and drop your navigation items and save it to the “main navigation area”. You can change the color of that if you like with a tiny bit of custom css in the Theme Options.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Andre

Default-user

Thank you. I will purchase.

Ok, so another question has arisen. If we wanted to to get rid of the boxes/buttons, could we? I’m referring to the “read more”, tags and ratings buttons.

We would prefer to just have the words with no border or button. This is particularly of concern for the ratings which we’d like to eliminate on the homepage altogether – what if no one likes the content? We don’t want that to be obvious on the homepage. For example, the demo has the “Digital SLR Camara Review” article rated as 6.5, Medicore on the homepage…. not a good look! :)

2winFactor

Hi Sadk81,

You’d need to change that with a little bit of custom css. You’ll just need to add a few lines in the Theme Options panel to remove the button styling.

The “ratings” aren’t for the articles themselves. It’s mean to be like a “review site”, where the author of the post reviews a product. Site visitors won’t be able to review your article. Does that make sense? The review isn’t what the readers think of the article. The “Mediocre” post on the homepage was referring to the DSLR camera, not the article.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Default-user

Ah! Makes sense. So if the author doesn’t rate the article, there’s no rating therefore no box?

2winFactor

Hi SADK81,

Yes, that’s correct!

Hi, i am very interested in your theme. Just one question. On the homepage in the grid option is there anyway to include a lightbox plug in so when you click on the different sections a video pops up instead of it bringing you to a blog post? Or if not how hard would this be to do?

Thanks

2winFactor

Hi Shepyup,

That feature isn’t included with the theme out of the box. It may be possible to do something like that, however, you’d need to make some customizations to the theme. I’d be happy to point you in the right direction, but you may need to seek a third-party developer for an alteration such as that.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

How’d to I auto get a video thumbnail?

2winFactor

Hi htayyub,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

It sounds like you just need to set a featured image for your post. Is that what you’re referring to? If you use a video for your post, you still need to provide a featured image. That way you have more control over the thumbnail image and there aren’t any copyright or bandwidth concerns.

So in the demo, I see that you have the grid homepage and that the images each have their own little slide show with a fade effect. I know you have to add a “featured image” to a post and stick it to the home page to get it to show on the grid, but how do you get it ti cycle through more images like yours? Do I just add more images to the “slide2” etc options on the side?

2winFactor

Hi Hendrexer,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

Yes you need to add a featured image and at least 1 slide image as well. Then just make sure you have the slideshow set to “AutoPlay” in Theme Options > Homepage.

Hey, the theme is not compatible right now with the latest Wordpress. I just updated my Wordpress this morning and several functions stopped working with the theme. Tried to switch the theme and it works.

Problems to appeared with the latest Wordpress- 1. It is not possible to open HTML editor neither in Posts or Pages 2. Linking does not work

Maybe there are others but this is what I found so far…

2winFactor

Hi Hotlondonboy,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

Which version of the Theme are you running? Please be sure that you’re running at least version 1.3.91. If your running anything older, you’ll need to update the theme to fix javascript issues in WordPress 3.5. If you’re running a later version, it’s most likely that your plugins are causing the issue in your WordPress admin panel. Make sure that your plugins are compatible with the latest version of WordPress or it will break things (on any theme).

Just bought the plugin under the grid you have latest posts, but nothing is there unless i click the arrow, is that because i dont have more post then what i set the grid too at the moment? I see your demo the latest posts open right up automatically.

2. What are you using for that Popular Recent Facebook on the side bar

2winFactor

Hi Zoddy,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

1) The way the grid works is that if a post shows up there, it won’t show below by default. That way you don’t see a bunch of duplicate posts on your homepage. You can change that if you want, please jump on the Support Forum and I’d be glad to help.

2) That’s the Custom Tabs Widget. You can add that in Appearance > Widgets to any number of page sidebars you choose.

Be sure your username matches your ThemeForest username used to purchase the item. In other words, the username and purchase code must match. Can you confirm you’re using your Themeforest username to sign up?

There is one major thing making me reconsider whether this is the theme to go with and that would be the way the More Headlines is set up. I think I understand that part of why it works like that is to stop the grid/slider from showing each time, but it is way too redundant. What about implementing an ajax type of loading more posts? as an example, the Pinboard theme in the repository does this exceptionally well.

2winFactor

Hi Codings,

That may come in a future update, however, that’s not a feature that’s included with the theme. I’ll look into something like that as a feature update to the theme.

When I make the logo larger than demo the logo looses responsiveness on pages. Is there a way to fix it? CSS edit maybe? Thanks for your help.

Hi Nezty,

That’s very strange. The logo should scale with the site. I’d need to see a live version to find out what’s going on. Could you post a live version link and start a new topic on the Support Forum? Thanks!

Hi,

Does this theme have the ability to have “Featured Posts” – some way of denoting posts to feature on the home page grid and have them excluded from Recent Posts or other category listings on the home page?

Thanks,

Hi Kwk,

Yep! Just mark posts as “sticky” and they’ll be featured in the homepage grid. :)

I’interesting in you theme. I would like to know the integration of the theme with q-translate plugin, the benefit and the limit. I must have four language. Thanks very much.

2winFactor

Hi Eye-set,

I haven’t had any reported issues with the Qtranslate plugin, however, on my initial testing there were issues with the ajax (latest news dropdown on the homepage) loading of posts. The ajax loads all the translations and not the current one. You may be able to fix this but the easiest thing to do is to just remove that ajax functionality and it should work just fine. I haven’t throughly tested the plugin on all installs and servers, so I can’t give you an iron-clad guarantee, but it should work with the theme – provided you remove the ajax functionality on the homepage.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

The WizyLike Like/Unlike WordPress Plugin for Posts not working with this theme.

Hi Siddhu,

I believe the WizyLike plugin isn’t compatible with the latest version of WordPress (3.5). http://codecanyon.net/item/wizylike-likeunlike-wordpress-plugin-for-posts/discussion/141290

It may be an issue with the plugin. Can you confirm the plugin works with the default theme enabled?

Great Theme, 1 Quick Question, Under the Grid, are you able to place a blank page instead of latest posts? If you can i will surely buy this theme :-)

2winFactor

Hi JedMed,

Sure, you can place any content you like below the grid – just add it to your page WYSIWYG editor and it will appear right below the grid. You’d just need to remove the bottom section with a couple lines of custom css – I’d be happy to help you with that part.

It would be nice to know if this theme has or could be integrated this: Banner System – It’s own Bannery system, in which you can add images, text, videos or any other type of HTML code. You can add/edit all effects ( how often banners will show up, after how much seconds it will disappear, effects, fly in time e.c.).

2winFactor

Hi Arturol,

What do you mean by banner system exactly? Something like this? http://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380

I don’t believe the theme has anything like that built-in. You may be able to add something like that yourself. I know the above plugin is a WordPress plugin so you may be able to just add something like that yourself via shortcodes and the plugin.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Arturol,

There’s nothing like that built into the theme, but you may be able to use a plugin for something like that. Maybe something like this?

Hi 2WinFactor,

Love the theme! Could you point me where I am going wrong on my home page. I installed the theme but the slider includes all the text from the blog post for some strange reason.

Thanks, D

2winFactor

Hi D,

It sounds like you just need to add a “more” tag in the WYSIWYG editor of your featured posts. It’s part of wordpress default functionality – just look for the button on the top row near the end. That will automatically create the break between the post overview and single post with a “read more” button that links the two. Let me know if you’re having trouble finding it.

I see in the desciption the theme supports a 300px sidebar layout. Do you have an example site or screenshot where I can see that option? Thanks.

Hi Rsuplee,

Here’s an example of the 300px sidebar and boxed layout:
