The demo data does not load properly it seems, any work around?

jono-111-ca

What version of WordPress are you using? 1. I have tested and imported the demo data on my local installation and it worked fine for me.

2. This may help you on how to import the theme demo data following these steps below on how to use the XML File to Import the Demo Site’s Content

1. Log into your site as an administrator. 2. Make sure you activated your new theme before proceeding. 3. Go to Tools ? Import 4. Choose “WordPress” from the list. 5. Upload the demo content .xml using the form provided on that page. 6. You will be asked to map the authors in this export file to users on 7.the blog. For each author, you may choose to map to an existing user on the blog or to create a new user. 8.You will then have the choice to import attachments, so click on the “Download and import file attachments” box. 9.Please be patient while WordPress imports all the content. Posts, Pages, Projects, and Menus are imported. You will need assign the menu a theme location & you’ll need to configure widgets. This is a limitation of WordPress’ import system. Enjoy!

I hope this is helpful to you.

Fantastic theme, I had a little problem with a conflicting plugin that was resolved prompty and effecantly by the author.

Great theme, Great support, I give it 5 stars, I am a very happy customer!

I am enjoying this theme thus far, a major issue I am having are the images in blog posts.

Although the featured image looks great anything within a blog post scales extremely large. Even when I adjust percentages, and images size.

Please help with this issue if you can.

Thanks,

To remove the 100% image width on images you can change the CSS in screen.css on line 2277 shown below:-

change this: .page-left-sidebar .hentry img, .page-right-sidebar .hentry img, .page-no-sidebar .hentry img{ width: 100%; }

To this: .page-left-sidebar .hentry img, .page-right-sidebar .hentry img, .page-no-sidebar .hentry img{ max-width: 100%; }

This will remove full-width images on blog posts which are currently set to 100% width. I think this is causing the issues on why you can not change the size of the images in the WordPress TinyMce editor.

This is an outstanding template with what I would also classify as great support – WordPress recently updated their software – this developer went out of his way to get me through a conflict caused by that update. Really great work and service!

I am interested in buying this theme but it seems very laggy on the demo site. Is there a solution to make it not so laggy?

Hi, the theme is responsive; it uses Twitter Bootstrap Framework and grid to respond to different screen sizes. Which phone are you using? Can you explain to me in more detail on the issues you are currently having so I can go and fix them. Whereabouts is the text being cut off?

I am using an iphone 5s. This link shows what it looks like when I first look at the site, no scrolling. http://willywebsites.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Photo-Jun-13-12-24-55-PM.png

Also I was never answered about the laggy-ness. I cannot have my clients looking at a laggy website.

Firstly the theme is fully responsive. I have tested it on a Samsung Galaxy s 2 phone. To view the responsive version of the site you will need to remove the Theme forest IFrame. Once you have done this the theme will be responsive on mobile. I will increase the speed and performance of the site in the next theme update. The site loading time is only slow due to the large background images being used.

Hey I have a few questions on styling, please send me an email.

Hello I purchased this theme and I need help with a problem.

In the “Portfolio section” I do not want the giant “featured image” picture on the specific portfolio item page. How can I remove the giant featured image on these pages?

Thank You

Default-user

I would prefer to keep the featured image but not have it pixelated. Please help!

Also another problem I am facing now is I am trying to create a custom Form to create a more in depth contact us page. But the form does not look the same as the contact us page template. The contact us page template look very good (part of the reason I bought the theme) but I need to edit it thus why I am using the Forms.

If you can fix the pixelated portfolio items and the Form looking like the contact us template page I will be very grateful and most likely become a repeat customer because I really like this theme!

jono-111-ca

Hi To fix the pixelated images for the portfolio items you need to edit the size of the images either using Photoshop or crop the images in WordPress. I recommend uploading image dimensions between 1200×450. WordPress media uploader will automatically crop the images down to the desired sizes.

You can configure the image sizes of the image manually in functions.php. If you need assistants with this I am more than happy to help with this.

Another solution is to download Regenerate Thumbnails plugin from http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

If you want to remove the featured image on portfolio items is to open up single-portfolio.php and find line 61 and comment out this line shown below. echo get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, ‘portfolio-single’ );

The contact template uses a widgetized sidebar. You will need to drag and drop the necessary widgets you would like to add to your contact template. This should display same as the demo site.

Has the theme been updated?

jono-111-ca

The Theme has been updated to version 1.1.1

This is a lovely versatile theme but more than that the support I received has been first class. Great theme, Great support, I give it 5 stars, I am a very happy customer!

Hello, Is the theme compatible with WP 4.0 ?

jono-111-ca

Hi, This theme is compatible with WP Version 4.0

Yes,it is compatible with WP 4.0. Thanks for the good theme by the way !

I bought this theme after looking at several others on ThemeForest. I’m glad I spent the time to research them because FlatSum is more than I expected. It’s flexible, sophisticated, and easy to work with. More than anything, what blew me away about the theme is the support I’ve received. I had one request to have the theme do something that’s not built in. John, the theme’s creator, didn’t tell me “tough luck, it’s not built for that.” Instead he has gone above and beyond my expectations to make my request a reality. I’ve worked with lots of developers over the last 10 years, and I say with certainty he’s one of the best and most responsive ever. I highly recommend this theme and John.

Is it possible to have a top menu bar with an area for social icons and a phone number?

jono-111-ca

Hi, It is possible to implement a top menu bar area with phone number and social icons to the top of the website. Currently the theme does not include this feature, but can be added easily to the item.
