Where is the documentation to setup this theme? How do you edit the slider content?

Hey Tony, the blog, secondary pages, and contact forms aren’t working (is this because the theme hasn’t been updated to 3.3?. Also, I can seem to find any documentation in the download file. Help!

Hello,

It seems there’s a problem in Opera with the Slidedeck.

No documentation. No support reply. Theme does not work. Do not buy.

Theme does not seem to work with current version of Wordpress and author is non-responsive, even through email.

Even as someone with years of WordPress experience, there are numerous issues with the current build of this theme:
  • Current build has basic CSS errors, straight out of the box
    • example: the main {html, body} background image callout is incorrect, throwing off the layout/design before a user even touches it
  • Non-standard naming conventions for areas/sections that can be customized, making it confusing as to which items are which
  • Numerous areas that would require hand-coding or code-level changes to personalize, as opposed to safe, easy-to-understand and user-friendly Admin-based adjustments being available, like other templates
  • Slider tabs placement is reverse-order static
    • If I have 9 sliders, I would have to either change publishing dates, or copy and paste all 9 sliders, one at a time, just to add a single new slider to the bottom of the list.
  • Text input for the Highlight section doesn’t automatically check-and-replace special characters
    • for example “don’t” displays on page as “don/’t”
  • There should be significantly better documentation
    • Burying one HTML page of notes inside the build folder (that can’t be accessed from the WordPress interface at all) is unacceptable.
    • Merely glossing over installation and a couple of short codes does not qualify as “Well Documented”
    • If a seasoned WordPress user has trouble with the lack of documentation, imagine what newcomers are experiencing.
    • There is zero documentation on multiple features – some of which would require adjustment, to make the purchased theme resemble the demo/preview
My biggest pet peeve at this point
  • Adding icons to the slider tabs (which are shown in the demo/preview, but not actually set up in the theme)
    • Not only is this completely undocumented… but even after hours of digging through the PHP code, it still doesn’t make sense, unless I completely break the PHP loop routine, and hand-code a new tab and icon every time I want to add a slider. This process should take less than 5 minutes per tab, completely from within the WordPress interface (via shortcodes, widgets, interface panel, something) – I have spent hours digging through code, and I still don’t have a single icon on a slider tab.
For $30, I expect significantly better coding;
  • more Admin-based flexibility and customization
  • better usability in the customization options
  • documentation that – at the absolute least – covers what is actually required to make a purchased theme look like the demo/preview.

  • This theme requires a lot of work – some of which at the code level – just to make it resemble the demo/preview. Without decent documentation, on top of a very limited Admin-based functionality, it just makes it all the more difficult to do.

    This is not a $30 theme – it’s dissappointing. I expect more from ThemeForest, and have received much more from them before, for the same (or less) money.

    i downloaded the template, activated it and in the middle of editing it i lost the ability to access the Features List options. I tried signing out and then back in, then also uninstalling it and installing it again – still do not have the tab available. Also, I am not able to change the header image. If I cannot edit this the way that I see it on the Themeforest preview, I would like to get my money back. Thank you .

    Template is very old for this price. Many better ones out there for $30.
