Hello There, I am interested in buying the theme but wanted to know how hard it is configure the Grid homepage also is it possible to change the green color to red, if so where in the css file? Also is it possible to translate the “read more”, “latest post” in to French? Thanks

2winFactor

Hi Majama!

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

I tried to make the Grid Homepage super easy. You pick the number of items you want to feature on the homepage, then select the posts you want to appear there. No shortcodes or anything tricky there. :)

The “Read More” and “Latest News” text have been localized, meaning they’re ready to be translated into any language. The easiest way to do that is to just install the CodeStyling Localization plugin and you can easily translate everything into your language.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification,

Thanks Andre, Yes you answered my question, the thing I need to know is how easy it is to change the colors! Thanks

2winFactor

Hi Majama,

You can just change the “Highlight” color as well as the button, link and hover colors right from the Options Panel. Check out this screenshot:

Hi

I’ve having some issues signing up for the support forum. Apparently the purchase code for the theme isn’t valid.

Also I’m having some issue with the thumbnails… I think. I assume they are all meant to be a standard size on the latest news section which is not happening for me.

This is also happening in the recent post widget, instead of a little thumbnail they are coming up as the same width as the widget.

2winFactor

Hi Asch,

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(Asch_) to sign up? If you’re still having issues, just let me know.

For the thumbnails, it just sounds like you need to install and run the “Regenerate Thumbnails” plugin. The theme uses the WordPress built-in thumbnails (for speed and security reasons) and the thumbnails are sized when they’re uploaded to your site. Just regenerate them with the plugin and everything should work great.

Let me know if you’re still having issues and need additional assistance.

Cool, managed to sign up ok Thanks for the help.

I just ran the thumbnail regen plugin and it hasn’t helped. If you go here http://sekijitsushinbun.com/2012/09/29/welcome-to-anime-step/

You can see what I mean in the sidebar.

2winFactor

Hi Asch_,

It looks like your theme is still not making thumbnails. Did you let the plugin run in it’s entirety? Also, check to make sure that your uploads folder has read/write/executre permissions (777) so that wordpress can create those thumbnails.

If you’re still having issues, just jump on the forums and I can assist you further.

I did let the plugin run for it’s entirety and my uploads folder has the correct chmod permissions.

Guess we are jumping over to the forums then.

Looks like the theme I’m waited for a long time here at Themeforest!

Just 3 pre-sale questions:

1) I assume changing the color is easy (is there a easy customization via Theme-Options?

2) Would it be possible to assign a specific color-set to a category (like green for category forest and blue for category sea) .. AND would it be possible to reflect these colors on the main page (so that the background-color of the “read-more” link (for example) is the same of the correspondent category of the entry?

3) Is it possible to add captions to the lightbox-popups and maybe even social-sharing links (like facebook, twitter, pinterest)?

Great Theme!

Thanks for your answers!

2winFactor

Hi Septa,

1) Yep, color changing is easy – you can change your “highlight color”, link, button and hover colors right from the Theme Options panel. Just click and select the color you want. Here’s a screenshot of that:

http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/3102218-extranews-responsive-news-and-magazine-theme?index=5

2) It’s possible, but you’d need to make some modifications to the theme. That would be a more complex alteration that would exceed the scope of theme support. You’d need to seek the help of a developer for an alteration such as that.

3) Yep! Captions are included in the lightbox popups of the theme. Just add your caption to your image via your dashboard and it will show up there. :)

Great theme mate , I have been looking at Gonzo and this theme and have to pick one . I have a few questions to you before I can decide

Any plans to support these ?
  • support Schema.org markup for reviews
  • Author Pages ( like this http://www.olliemccarthy.com/themes/gonzo/?author=1 )
  • background image
  • 728 wide banner in the header
  • what is the max width for a banner in the sidebar
  • Is there any documentation on how I can add some custom fields that I currently use in to the theme and make sure they act responsive
  • will it be possible to have google custom search instead of the stock wordpress search
  • With the review component .. can we have separate review criteria .. eg: game reviews will have graphics, value , etc and hardware reviews will have screen , performance , value , etc
  • buit in Related Posts
2winFactor

Hi Saijo,

Thanks! I’m glad you like it :)

1) Schema will be coming in a very early update. I coded with this in mind, but didn’t add it as I didn’t know what the demand was.

2) This isn’t something that’s not included with the theme at the moment. This may be added though in the future depending on demand.

3) You can add any background image or texture you want via the Theme Options panel. There’s also a few background textures included too.

4) Yep – I just put the 480×60 banner in the header for demo purposes. You can put any size ad up there, but if your logo is too big you might want to use something smaller so it doesn’t overlap. Otherwise, you can make a small css change in the Options Panel to display the ad above or below your logo.

5) I’ve designed the theme so the sidebar will fit most ads for each layout. The sidebar never goes any slimmer than 227px wide, meaning that you can place a multitude of ad sizes there and they will fit in any layout without having to be resized (skyscraper, wide skyscraper, small rectangle). Adsense examples: http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=185666&topic=29561&ctx=topic

6) What types of things are you trying to add to the theme to be responsive? You can add all sorts of things with custom fields to this theme. Could you clarify a bit more?

7) That doesn’t come with the theme by default, however, there are many awesome plugins that add this functionality. Here’s an example:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-custom-search/

8) Yep, each post has it’s own criteria – you can type anything you want and have as many or as little criteria as you like. :)

9) This isn’t included with the theme at the moment but may come in the future depending on demand.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification,

Andre

SaijoGeorge

Thanks for the reply.

Any rough ETA on Schema support ? I was also wondering id you plan to add author markup for multi author blog ( http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1408986 )

The sidebar ads I run at the moment are 390 wide and I dont think they will play nice .. I an planning to switch over to 300 wide and wanted to know if that would ok with the themes sidebar

Regarding custom fields I run a windows phone blog and use qrcodes and app logos , download links to apps via custom fields. It would be awesome if I can structure it in such a way that some elements like QRcode is shown on desktop and tablet size but on mobile its hidden. I am not sure if that is a possibility but thought it might not hurt to ask :)

I will most likely get this as soon as Scheme support goes up :)

2winFactor

Hi Saijo,

Schema I’m hoping to integrate within the next couple weeks, along with and individual author page template.

The sidebar ads can’t be more than 227px wide. The 300px wide ads would need to shrink to fit. You can make any images on the site responsive, so as long as it’s okay that they shrink, you should be okay.

Yep! You could do that with the custom fields. Hiding stuff for mobile sizes is pretty easy. Just add the “hidemobile” class to anything you want to hide on mobile.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Wow, great theme! Best of luck with sales. Quick questions:

1. Is it possible to have a one-column blog layout instead of the 2-columns?

2. Any plans to support user-ratings in the future?

2winFactor

Hi CompareTemplates,

1. Not at the moment, however, that’s coming in the next update.

2. Not currently, but perhaps in the future depending on demand.

Awesome!

Can i place an ad-banner at the grid on the homepage, same size like the picture there, but i need to set an ref link to an external target (affiliate code and “_blank”).

Next question, in your demo is only right sidebar visible.its possible to select pages with left sidebar? Maybe left and right? I hope this looks great at 3,5” device, or its better only with one sidebar?

Your theme is very very nice, i use this style for print ads and i`am happy to see this layout for wordpress.

2winFactor

Hi Grigorios,

I’m glad you like it! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

1) You may be able to do that, but you’d have to make some alterations to the theme to get an ad to display in the grid area. That’s a more complex alteration that would exceed the scope of Theme Support. You’d need to seek the help of a developer for something like that.

2) Only the right sidebar is available at the moment. Two sidebars on a mobile device may be tough – I haven’t really looked into it.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Exploring this theme to purchase for our team base tech blog, but wondered what layout are available for a blog post. Can’t individual Post in the demo. Could you plz explain?

2winFactor

Hi Rajann,

Forgive me, I’ve having a hard time understanding your question, could you please clarify? The format for the individual blog posts are what you see in the demo. Typically what you see in the demo is what you get in the download. I’d be glad to answer your question, I’m just having a hard time understanding! Sorry!

Andre

I mean what are the possible layout options for individual posts. I saw that the theme demo demonstrated the fullpage width for pages, but what about posts? Can I assign individual posts to fullwidth, or others with sidebar on the left or right for specific posts?

2winFactor

No full-width posts at the moment. Just the standard with sidebar. Additional post layouts may be coming in the future depending on demand.

Hey bud, you said earlier about an early update tk the theme, dk you know roughly what your adding and when it will be?

I don’t want to heavily edit the site I’m building before knowing what other awesome things you adding :-)

Purchasing later or tomorrow morning, very excited to get going on this.

Just to give you a heads up this new site will be a sport based website, got some cracking ideas for it. And then when I’m finished I’m doing another for a memories/history site – big plans for this as well.

Hi Rich,

I’m going to push for two updates next week. An early one for any small bugs and some minor heading structure changes, then the next one most likely a one-column blog format. I’m still mapping out some of the updates to the theme, however.

Hi Tatoeba,

I try to make every theme as simple and powerful as possible. You shouldn’t have to do any complex shortcodes or anything to get the theme working, most options are check boxes and upload areas. You might want to check out some of the screenshots of the backend to see exactly what I’m talking about: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/3102218-extranews-responsive-news-and-magazine-theme?index=1

Hi Andre,

I am trying to reduce the gap on the top and bottom of the logo. I played around with the h1 and the navcontainer, but can’t locate it. Where would I be able to do reduce the gap please? Best wishes.

Hi Amohamed,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

You can just adjust those padding areas in Theme Options > Customize. Just change the number values for the “Padding Above Logo” and “Padding Above Navigation” right from the options panel :)

Quick pre-sale question:

The font you’re using (Bitter, is it?) on the grid and blog post titles looks very clean and renders nicely. Are you using typekit, or is that how the theme looks out of the box?

Thanks

2winFactor

Hi Shrewski,

The Theme uses the Google Fonts API , so no typekit subscriptions necessary. Bitter (along with 300+ other google fonts) come standard with the theme.

Any other question, just let me know!

Love the theme. Been looking for something like this for quite a while with editable review fields. Once the single column blog layout is ready, I’ll definitely be buying this theme.

This theme is pretty nice and different from the others. Good work.

1st Question: Is there any way to put a background image or color instead of the original white background

2nd Question: Can you show more than 4 posts under the latest post tab on the webpage without clicking on the more headlines option. Maybe instead of 4 post, I may want to post 6 visible on the homepage, then give the reader an option to press the more headliness link to see more. Is this possible?

Hopefully I was clear. Im waiting to purchase, but would like to know the answers to these first.

2winFactor

Hi Terrance,

1) Yep! You can either choose from a few different background textures/images that come with the theme, or upload anything you want. All via the Theme Options panel.

2) Yep! You can set that number of posts to anything you like.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification.

Hi Showkontor,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

It looks like you just need to make sure your custom.css(in the css folder) and custom.js(in the js folder) have read/write/execute (777) permissions. Just set these permissions and that should fix the error message you’re seeing.

Another Thing: When trying to upload slide 2 or more for the Grid Homepage they disappear in the Post after saving and do not work

http://traumhochzeit-in-duesseldorf.de.dd25630.kasserver.com/

Please help.

2winFactor

Hi Showkontor,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

It looks like you’ve used the demo content included with the download. For some reason, wordpress needs you to “remove” your image thumbnails before adding new ones. So if you haven’t used the images with the theme download, you’ll just need to set you slide 2, remove it, then set it again and save the post. Sounds silly, but wordpress likes to be picky like that. :)

Two questions:

1. Does this theme create like 20 versions of the same image in different sizes? My current theme (a really popular magazine theme) makes about 22 different versions of each image I upload (in different sizes). It’s really annoying because I’m starting to hit my file limit for my shared hosting plan.

2. Any plans to add a toggle short-code? I write video game reviews, but I like to hide the score in toggle boxes so people just don’t scroll down and go straight for the score. It’s also go for spoilers :D

2winFactor

Hi Deshaunz,

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

1. The theme makes a sized thumbnail for each instance, a total of 10 different sizes. Most themes use this type of image sizing for a few reasons. Resizing images dynamically severely increases load time and sever load, and additionally script like that (timthumb for instance) has had some massive security problems. The other alternative is you don’t resize images, which would be terrible for the load time of your site as well. The good news is all the images are relatively small, so they shouldn’t take up a lot of space (as opposed to a fullscreen theme or the like). WordPress Thumbnails are default wordpress functionality as well, so it’s very clean, flexible and fast to have that functionality in your theme.

2. Not at the moment, but perhaps in the future depending on demand.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Andre

Default-user

Thanks for the reply! I can deal with 10 sizes, and I understand that it’s needed for all the different post types :)

here is an example

How you told, the ad (vodafone) is not linkable direct to an extern page, ok . but the sidebar on the right is an probleme, i need sub menus and there are left :-)

do you think its possible to to this like at the sample? witt a second row? or have someone a better idea?

Hi Grigorios,

It’s possible, however, you’d need to make some modifications to the theme. Those sort of modifications would go beyond the scope of support. You’d need to consult with a developer for an alteration such as that.

Hi!

Amazing theme! Thank you.

I would like to use “Share This” instead of your built in share buttons. While they are great and pretty I want some more statistics and functionality to them. I could add them to the posts/page and set yours to “none” but would love to have them in exact same spot yours are. With the other method they show up right under the text which I don’t prefer…

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks!

2winFactor

Hi Flavius,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

Have you seen the built in social counter style sharing? You can choose that option in your post as well (and you can get share counts for everything). Check that out here:
