I have not bought this..yet!! , its really nice. I am slowly learning how to make my own wordpress themes but these files just make me want to buy and customise!! Its truly astounding what has happened re Wordpress in the last 18 months. Even in your own work there has been such a progression. Great work, as always.

Thanks again for this great theme. I hope I am not bothering you with multiple requests. I seem to be having the same problem as Massfocus regarding the comments? it is not recognizing the button to submit the comment – cursor does not change to hand as other buttons within the theme. I also have another issue I messaged you about regarding a strange bar above the footer on my post page.

Again I hope I am not being a bother, and apologize if this is a simple oversight on my end – First time working with wordpress.

Greatly appreciate the theme and any insights you may have. Cheers, Scot

Hi Beard,

I’m checking into this today for you guys – should have an answer as to why it’s not working for you but it’s working for everyone else later on today :) If you can provide a link that’d be great!

Hello,

I love the theme and I am currently in the middle of adding content. I noticed that I cannot seem to comment logged in as an admin or guest. I have this feature turned on and yet it still doesn’t work.

Has anyone else received a resolution in regards to this matter?

Please help.

Hey Brandon its me again :P

just another quicky. im going for this theme cos it will save me time to rip it apart than do from scratch however… what i would need is to split the categories.. in other words i would need two categories blog and portfolio to show up seperatley on the menu.. (not under categories submenu) in other words top menu should look something like this: HOME | ABOUT US | BLOG | PORTFOLIO | SHUFFLE !

hope you got the idea :) any ideas is it actually possible? if so how hard i will need to hack it? :)

Hi LeBrit – This is actually the topic of the update coming this week :) I’m busy writing a small series of tutorials about custom modifications like this which will help out the handful of people that have been requesting some more advanced modifications. If you pick up the theme now and get started, all you need to do is separate your posts by category, and then as soon as the tutorials are ready (hopefully tomorrow) you’ll be ready to finish up.

Cheers! Brandon

Any update on the release of the comments.php file for those of us that are having problems commenting using this theme?

Thanks Brandon

Hi Brandon,

Great Theme mate!! Just a quick one… I installed all the demo content as most of the structure is very similar to what I want as I have a webdesign business myself. The Menu Item that says ‘Categories’ , how can this be changed to say ‘Portfolio’ or something else..

It might be a silly question , but I normally work with Joomla, but your template is perfect for my portfolio and I only just started using Wordpress..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Sunny

Hi Sunny!

Thanks for the notes. Good question, here’s a quick summary of what to change in header.php to change the word “categories”: http://pastie.org/893772

Cheers! Brandon

First of all, thanks for a brilliant theme. This is just what I need.

But I have one problem. I can’t figure out how the lightbox_gallery_link work. I link to one image in the gallery (with two pics) and in the published post I get 3 images (one of them two times..)

It would be really nice with more detailed explernation on how to do this part.

Thanks again!

Hi Kenneth!

Thanks for the notes – Right now this is actually linked to how Wordpress handles galleries (not the theme itself) – it’s something that I looked high and low for an elegant solution for, but Wordpress is pretty limited in it’s ability to filter this extra image right now. Hopefully with Wordpress 3.0 (coming out soon!) we’ll have a better solution, in which case I’ll be updating this theme immediately.

Cheers! Brandon

Any word on the comments.php file release?

I have an update coming today for this, but just add this for now to the custom CSS panel in the admin menu :

/* IE Dropdown menu fix */ .cufon:hover, .page_item{color: white !important; visibility: visible !important;}

:)

Thanks for responding Brandon. I had followed your instructions and emailed you asking for the file in advance of the reviewers releasing it. I emailed you twice and was hoping you would send me the file to my email address I supplied so that I can upload it asap.

Thanks.

Hi Daniel,

The accent font used is League Gothic, from the League of Moveable Type – but you can swap it for any font that you’d like with a few extra steps :)

Hey Brandon,

Thanks for sending me the files. We applied them as you indicated in the email but it still does not work. I sent you an email with ftp info to see if you can take a look.

I love the theme but those comments features not working for me still is really causing grief at this point. Hope to see a resolution and looking forward to many more of your great additions to ThemeForest.

Best,

Has anyone else had a problem with duplicate images when using the lightbox gallery feature

ex : I have 2 images in the media gallery, and on the site it has 3 images

I cant seem to find anything to suggest I am doing something wrong

Hi Lion,

Yep – I’ve mentioned this a few times so far (too bad this discussion board doesn’t let you search it!) – but essentially this is an issue tied to Wordpress’s gallery feature. Us authors are all hoping that Wordpress will fix this in the next update, but I can’t say if/when it’ll happen. Long story short: for now, whatever image is selected for the thumbnail has a tendency to be repeated because whatever dev-guy that coded the Wordpress gallery doesn’t give coders the ability to omit images from the gallery. I know it’s a silly annoyance, and if there’s an official fix that comes down from the Wordpress dev crew, I’ll be sure to include it into this theme!

Cheers! Brandon

Hey Brandon,

I got the same as donnaperry, i replaced the files and it still wont work commenting, it did improve the cursor now it recognizes the button but it wont do anything.

I will send you a mail with ftp/login info in hope you could take a look for me.

Thanks for the update Mass – checking into this right now for you two :)

Hi Brandon,

This is what looks to be a very cool theme. I’ve followed the installation step by step, but somehow I don’t get the “Flex Options” button after activating it.

Do you know what I’m missing here?

Best, Michael

Default-user

As I wrote in my last post. Wordpress version 2.9.2.

I’m thinking I should try a full re-install of WP + Flex perhaps.

Best, Michael

Hi Michael,

Hmmm – it sounds like the functions.php isn’t loading… try a fresh theme folder install and see if that works. If not, you might just have a corrupted download from ThemeForest (which can easily happen in a 30mb+ file). Either way I’ll be here to help out :)

Hi Brandon,

I did a full re-install of WP+Flex and it works like a charm. Thanks for the fast replies :)

Could you help me before I buy…...

The intention is to us this as the main website for a group of companies that come under the same brand…

Basically each square on the front page would be a link to the relevant website.

Is this something that can be done in this theme?

Also is is possible to add posts later and keep these posts below the first few ‘links’?

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Yes, this is definitely something that could be done with this theme – It’ll likely take a little bit of custom coding as this theme is basically setup to link to either a lightbox or a post, but I’ll be more than happy to help out with it since it sounds like a pretty simple customization. Essentially we’ll just need to add a new custom field for these external links to link outside of the site, and then just make sure those posts always stay on top.

Cheers! Brandon

MDNW

I should also note that the simplest way to do this wouldn’t require any extra coding at all – which is to basically just have each “company” module link to a post about the company, and then from there you can link out to the external site. This is usually a good practice as it allows people to stay inside the same UI environment to read about each company, and then they can choose to link outside. Either way can work though :)

Just another note – check out Thorstone’s suggestion below as well :)

Hey Andrewneilcrump! There is a simple plugin called “Redirect” ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/redirect/other_notes/ ) that along with Brandon’s update coming soon could be a possible solution for you.

After installing and activating redirect. Create a category just for your group of companies “Brand Group”. Give each one of your companies their own post with something like “acme.com” as a title, select the group category. Then follow the redirect usage instructions

Description and Use – Simple redirection from pages or posts using Custom Fields.

On the page or post you wish to redirect from, open up the Custom Fields section

Type in ‘redirect’ for the key, and then any URL for the value Press Add Field, save the post, and you’re done!

You should now have a category (that you can possibly put in the menu with Brandon’s update – You’ll have to ask him) that will bring up posts of all your companies that should go straight to there respective home pages.

Just an idea!
