First of all pretty cool theme. I am having a problem when trying to add Font-Awesome icons to the main menu. I originally installed the Font Awesome Menu 4 plugin, but there was a problem with the alignment where the icons would go above the menu indication bar at the top of the page. So I removed it.

Then I realized you already declared the Font Awesome library in the theme so not sure if there are some problems. I tried just adding the css to the menu items, but still not working.

Please let me know what I can do to fix this.

Hi Ricardo,

Thanks for your kind words :) It really depends on how and where you’re wanting to apply the icons. Could you send me an email to andres@nicethemes.com with the URL of your site and a little more detail about the modifications you need?

Best,

Andrés.

Hi guys! Great work on the theme!

I have several questions though… I’m planning to use it for a website that organizes workshops. So, I’m planning on using a plugin through which to make registration forms. Which one do you think will be the best and will not mess up too much with the responsive layout of the website? For now I have my eyes on Gravity Forms.

Next, is there a possibility for a multi-column page layout (as in the demo is a regular page full-width)?

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

Thank you for kind words :)

About registrations, Gravity Forms should do it in terms of functionality. The default forms are pretty clean, and they sell their product saying it’s easy to integrate with almost any theme, so I think it might work well with Flatbase.

Regarding your second question, although the homepage template is full-width, you can use it as a base to create a new custom template, or override it with a child theme. See these links for further information:

Best,

Andrés.

Hello, We cannot preview an article from WP-admin. It is giving us a 404. This is happening on our localhost as well as the live site – www.brightpod.com/help/

Is this a known bug?

Hi spparikh,

Thanks again for your patience. It seems that it is a WordPress core bug. However, I’ve found a way to solve this.

Please check the code here: https://gist.github.com/juanfraa/ca449eaa9352fcbfdafe

Copy and paste that code to your functions.php file and you’ll get it solved.

Best, Juan.

Hey Juan! Great theme. My boss purchased it for our documentation website and I’m finishing the setup at this time. He purchased under his own account and I am using my personal one for this question. Let me know if that is an issue and I can ask him for the purchase code.

We are wanting to EXCLUDE a specific knowledgebase (article) category from displaying on both the homepage and the knowledgebase page. I’ve achieved this currently by adding the home and knowledgebase templates on our child theme and adding the “exclude” parameter to the nicethemes_knowledgebase function.

While this works perfectly fine I feel this should be achieved through a custom filter or hook instead of having to maintain a duplicate template but I didn’t see any hints for a filter or hook within your functions file so I am not sure if this is at all possible.

If it is in fact possible, could you share some technical notes for implementation? otherwise would you consider this for a future update?

Thanks again!

Hi,

Thanks for your kind words.

Well, the function nicethemes_knowledgebase has several hooks in order for you to add filters.

For example, an easy way to exclude a category: https://gist.github.com/juanfraa/d5bcc9d3873e271259f2

Have a nice day, Juan.

Worst documentation to the theme of what I saw. How to customize your homepage? How to set up a forum? The documentation on this is not written. Xml file is not a topic for this you need to register with the support and documentation about nothing. If you download xml it does not solve the problem of theme settings.

Hello William,

Thanks for writing, and suggesting improvements in our documentation. We’re working in order to improve the documentation.

You are right, the XML file only contains the information to be imported. That’s not on our end, it is a WordPress standard. The XML file always import data and not settings. It is always like that, on any theme.

So, once you import the XML file, you need to do the following:

1. Set up your front page: http://nicethemes.com/article/setting-home-page/

2. Set up the widgets: http://nicethemes.com/article/using-wordpress-widgets/

3. Be sure to assign your navigation menu to its proper location: http://nicethemes.com/article/setting-navigation-menu/

If you want to customize your home page, you can do it through the Theme Options panel, which is located over the dashboard “NiceThemes > Theme Options”.

With regards to set up a forum, we mentioned in the theme description that it is bbPress compatible, so we assumed that it is tacit that you need to install bbPress in order to set up a forum.

You can find some detailed documentation on how to set up a bbPress forum here: https://codex.bbpress.org/step-by-step-guide-to-setting-up-a-bbpress-forum/

Best, Juan.
