Great update Thanks.

BoxyStudio

You’re welcome!

Hi, a couple pre-sale questions:
1) The play button/icon for audio sermons isn’t showing (on your demo site). I opened it in both Firefox and Chrome and the play icon doesn’t show in either. When will this be fixed? (I saw it was brought up 2 months ago in a comment.)

2) Does this theme support featured images for sermons? I’ve seen featured images used for this sermon plugin in other themes, but yours currently doesn’t have images for any. If it does, could you please attach an image to one and send me the link so I can see an example?

Thanks.

Fantastic! Thank you!!

You’re welcome, enjoy!

Hi, Pre-sale questions: 1) I have a client using the ‘Born’ theme. They need an update. Is Forgiven similar in terms of its admin panel and use? I don’t want to create too much confusion for the people who add events, etc. 2) I use Fast Secure Contact Form. Is that plugin compatible with this theme? or is this theme only compatible with CF7 and Gravity? 3) Is there a place for custom CSS? that will survive upgrades? Thanks, beautiful theme, btw.

BoxyStudio
  1. Forgiven is a huge update over Born, however it’s definitely different. Forgiven uses the Church Theme Content plugin to supply the content for sermons, events, etc. You would need to set up a brand new site and manually bring over events and sermons.
  2. I haven’t tested FSC with Forgiven but it should work fine.
  3. Yep, there’s a Custom CSS field in the Theme Options panel.

Im about to purchase this theme, but was wondering how many color options there are for it? I searched the comments section, theme forest and the Boxy Studio website but came up empty handed. Thanks in advance!

BoxyStudio

There are nearly 50 color pickers to change the colors to whatever you want. ;)

Great theme. I have a few pre-purchase questions to ask.

1) Is there a way to create a right panel on homepage and all subpages such as events?

2) Can i view screenshots or live preview of the admin panel?

3) Can i left align the logo and/or make header larger in height to place my logo there?

Basically, my site is just a baseball club and I like how easy the site is. I wanted to keep it basic. Events, Gallery, Social Feeds, Blog, Form is all I need. Is it easy to hide the rest completely? That is kind of why I’d like to see the admin side :)

@BoxyStudio, so far so good! Question. Is there a way to have a Sort By option for the Events area?

BoxyStudio

No, there isn’t sorry! It sorts them by closest event first by default. Isn’t that what you’d want it to be anyway?

Hi, does this have an option to use columns? For example, I want to create a page with 3 columns for the body, or 2 columns? Would that be possible with this theme?

BoxyStudio

You can use the included Visual Composer plugin to add more than one column to any page.

Hey Justin, love the Feature Circles for the homepage, just wondering if we could maybe improve them just a tad. I have a few other themes I have used on other websites that include an option to upload a custom icon instead of using one of the Font Awesome icons. Font Awesome is great, but if I could also have the option to add my own “icon” or small image instead that would be even more awesome.

I could either crop the image before hand with Photoshop to make the image round and the correct (recommended) size, or the feature could automatically apply a circular crop/mask (which would be even better.

Thanks man – I appreciate all your work.

BoxyStudio

Great idea, I’ll see what I can do for the next update. ;)

PeterHoppe

Awesome. Thanks :)

Hi, for some reason the new Facebook page plugin doesn’t work with your theme on iPhone. https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/page-plugin

It shows up on my laptop just fine but not when I pull it up with my iPhone.

BoxyStudio

Commenting out “carouFredSel” is going to break other things throughout the theme like the Forgiven Blur Slider and Twitter/Facebook widgets. However if you don’t need those then that’s fine.

As for the Facebook Page widget, I cannot provide full support for every possible piece of functionality available. Especially new ones that are released. It’s just not possible. I’ll look into this though and see if I can figure out the issue!

PeterHoppe

Ok, thanks. I’ll fix line 64 then. Understood on the Facebook Page widget – I know it’s new. I know it’s a bonus if you get it fixed – appreciate anything you can do. Thanks.

BoxyStudio

Cool, thanks Peter!

Hi,

I saw the screenshot which you have put on the site https://boxystudio.com/ for forgiven. The featured circles are circles instead of squares, how can that be done?

When I click on a “tag” from an event in the calendar, the individual items are not appearing on the page. Is this a fix from the theme or shall I contact The Event Calendar forum?

Ex: http://www.gatesofheavenclgi.com/tag/multicultural/

Hello,

I have a few pre-sale quesions. Forgiven looks like a great theme, but I’m debating between it and another church theme.

1) Which, if any, theme features/functionality might cause issues for me if I want to switch to another theme in the future?

2) Could I view a live preview or at least screenshots of the admin panel?

Viewing the admin panel may help me answer some of the following questions, but if you have quick answers, I would greatly appreciate that!

1) Is it possible to display the sermon text while playing the sermon audio? 2) Does the theme support self-hosted audio and video? 3) Are there multiple header options? I’m interested in having two separate navigation menus (the main navigation, and then top navigation with some quick links like “I’m New” or “Members”), would this be possible without a plugin? (I’m pretty new to Wordpress, so it’s not clear to me whether this option is a wordpress option or is provided by a theme or plugin) 4) Is the site using the built-in wordpress search functionality? Would a plugin to improve the search functionality (like Swiftype search) be compatible with the theme and allow me to keep the same stylization?

BoxyStudio
  1. The theme uses Church Theme Content, which is a plugin that stores all of your church related content (sermons, events and staff). So if you choose to switch to a different theme that supports this plugin, your content will go with it. Forgiven doesn’t lock your content into the theme.

And your other questions:

  1. No, sorry.
  2. Yes, you can self host your audio/video.
  3. Yes there are two header options but neither of them include two spots for navigation.
  4. Yes, it uses default search functionality so a properly built search plugin should work well with Forgiven.

And it doesn’t come with a child theme, but they’re very easy to create: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

Thank you so much for the quick reply.

Hi. On the homepage you show the 3 boxes that flip on hover. How do I do that? Which template or element is that? Thanks

BoxyStudio

They’re called Feature Circles/Blocks. You first need to create these feature circles from the Feature Circles > Add New menu option. Then, you’ll see those feature circles show up in the dropdowns in this section of the Page Settings panel.

Is there a way to add a responsive image to the to the top of subpages (under the navigation where a slider would be)? If I add it into the content it isn’t full width and if I add a slider with one image it still animates in. I’ve tried a parallax, but I would rather keep it simple.

BoxyStudio

You cannot add something that is full width unless you use Visual Composer and add a full width block to the page. I believe it’s called something like “Row stretch”: https://wpbakery.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=3604483
