sorry double post ;)

HI Manuel

I need your help, I have transformed my whole website to Forte. I have spent lot of time on transfer and now I have found out it is not compatible with WC Composite products plugin

chceck my product page: http://www.scoutparamotor.com/product/scout-paramotor-custom/

1. add to cart button is missing!!!

2. layout should look like this: http://docs.woothemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Canon-5D-6D-Kit-Single-Page1.png

please help Miroslav

Hi Miroslav,

I’m sorry for the issue, unfortunately the plugins that work on the layout, as the plugin you’re using, always need further work: they assume that a theme hasn’t moved the order of the WooCommerce hooks, but if you want to get particular layouts with a theme you often have to change the order and priority of some function, without, of course, removing them.

I think that’s the case, even if I don’t know the plugin you mention.

If you could provide it via email or let me enter your site via WP and FTP (better) I could take a look: manu[at]pixedelic.com

Another problem is that the plugin assumes that the theme uses Prettyphoto, but it isn’t mandatory. Forte uses ColorBox as lightbox instead of Prettyphoto and for this reason the plugin generates a javascript error that avoids to show the add to cart button when required.

Also in this case I could find a solution, maybe reactivating Prettyphoto on your end. For this reason I’d prefer you provided your FTP and WP details.

About the double content: in my experience, this kind of issue is due to WPML plugin: an old version of WPML with a recent version of Wordpress generates this issue with themes or plugins that filter the content somehow. I see you’re using WPML 2.6, am I right?

Manuel :-)

pixedelic

Do not forget FTP details please, just to make non-obtrusive tests (I don’t want to test PHP functions from WP editor, because I couldn’t fix accidental fatal errors from there).

I’m afraid your version of WPML is too old. It is a known issue: http://goo.gl/4wsF9w

TIA, Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel,

Can you please tell me how do I make this theme multilingual? I saw the theme detail says ”WPML ready,” but I can’t find the way to achieve it from the documentation provided.

Thanks Wipop

pixedelic

WPML ready means only that the theme has been developed with some plugins in mind. It supports WPML, but WPML it is a premium plugin that can’t be included. The description also says WPMU ready and ecommerce ready.

Manuel :-)

Hi again Marco,

First of all sorry for my English!!

I have a problem with WPML. When I activate the WPML pluguins, the product page appears with duplicate content. It only happens with the default language, not for the translations.

Thanks

pixedelic

Hi Marco,

please, check whether you are running the last version of WPML (2.8.2). This was a known issue but with old versions of WPML.

Let me know.

Manuel :-)

Default-user

That’s right… I’m not running the last version of WPML, but I’ve found a solution for older versions of WPML.

Solution for home page repetition content: -In widepage.php write “wp_reset_query();” just after “get_header();”

Solution for single product page repetition content: -In woocommerce.php write the same; “wp_reset_query();” just after “get_header();”

Thanks Marco!

pixedelic

It is a strange fix… I’m running WPML with Forte on many test sites with no problem. Are you sure that isn’t due to another plugin, maybe a SEO plugin or something else that adds content to your header?

Manuel :-)

Nice theme! :-)

- Is it possible to make the site multilingual (ex. English + Danish) with your WPML integration?

- Where will the language selector be located?

- Is the WPML plugin integrated, or still need seperate licence for this?

Thanks!

pixedelic

Hi kmorgen,

Forte supports WPML, you can put it in the main navigation menu ( https://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/wbad?size=o ), or in a sidebar (not in the footer, I’m sorry). Sorry, but the license of the plugin is not included in the theme.

Manuel :-)

Hello Manuel ! Is this theme (which seems to be great!!!) ready for translation? Cheers

pixedelic

Hi Arnaud3d,

it already has .po and .mo files, of course, you can use WPML for munti-language purpose or PoEdit (or similar) to translate the strings.

hello Manuel

how can i edit and translate the page, error 404.

pixedelic

Hi,

the 404 page is editable from Forte cpanel -> Blog -> 404 page.

The things on the Forte admin panel are translatable by using the “String translation” option of WPML.

Manuel :-)

Hi, Well done with the theme. I’m looking to purchase it but would like to know if it’s compatible with any multilingual plugins (english/japanese) – for example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multilingual-press/

or if possible for you to suggest a plugin which works best. Thanks

pixedelic

Hi,

I try to support as better as I can WPML, nothing else, I’m sorry: http://wpml.org/

Hi Manuel,

awesome theme i must say, but there are some major issues when trying to use it with a multilingual woocommerce shop. if you are interested i can provide a test environment to reproduce the error.

Hi and thank you.

I’m in touch with many other persons that use WPML without any issue… so please, yes, provide more details. If you prefer here is my email address: manu[at]pixedelic.com

Hello, we having trouble with the slider at the front page, the time pass very quick in IE but its very slow in Chrome? see console-repair.ie also when you make the screen smaller for mobile devices the header will double and the menu wont show but its there?

There does not seem to be any WPML translation options in the Portfolio/Gallery menu?

pixedelic

If I’ve understood what you mean correctly, did you try to go to WPML -> Translation options and activate the post type and the taxonomy you need? https://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/ho9p?size=o

How do we translate the various fields filled out in the Forte Admin? – For example the Side icons, sliding sidebars etc?

We have the regular WPML license, but this does not include the WPML String Translation module unfortunately. Maybe this is also the reason why your Widgets cannot be translated?

Any inputs and ways to overcome this will be appreciated! :-)

pixedelic

Working on your issue with WPML.

About the portfolio: I’m sorry, this is the normal way for me to work with a portfolio, where in the gallery you put the featured image of a project, not all the images of all your projects.

Manuel :-)

Hi!

Your theme looks absolutely epic! It’s just what I’ve always searched for, I’m really interested in buying it, but before that, I’d like to make some questions:

- I’d like to create 2 versions for my website, one in english and one in spanish. Is it possible with this theme?

- Could this special Page Builder make my site not to be so SEO optimized like if it just had simple text?

Thanks a lot, and congrats for the GREAT job with your theme.

pixedelic

Hi vicintosh,

Forte supports WPML, if you have a license of WPML you can use to create a multilanguage site. I don’t know how other plugins work, however Forte comes with a localization file to be translated in any language. You can also run a Wordpress Network and make to sites with the same installation.

The page builder just creates html and text, like a normal page.

Manuel :-)

hi,

can you please check if this menu screenshot is ok or not ?

http://snag.gy/SuyVK.jpg

i was telling you some days ago that this is a …long big menu that is not ok in my taste…

i am am using chrome 24… on windows 7… (same happens in ie9…)

thx!

pixedelic

Mmmmm… not sure about what you mean… it is a megamenu, so if you select to display a submenu two columns wide it is normal that the width is double... two columns so double width… sorry, what do you mean? Here you can see many examples of megamenus: http://designm.ag/inspiration/mega-menus/

However, the second level menu of “Home demos” is one column only, another double column is used for the Shop.

pixedelic

no… we see the same thing… but I don’t understand why we are talking about that. The width of the submenu is fixed, and it doesn’t depend on the content, it is about 240 pixels, like a normal column (such as the sidebar), it changes only if you resize the width of the monitor.

The width of the first level button saying “Home demos” depends on the content of the button itself.

If you don’t like, ok, that’s normal, please (really) do not buy the theme if you are not satisfied of the preview, but I really don’t understand why we are talking about a simply design choice. I just had a look to http://demo.truethemes.net/Karma-Wordpress/, just for instance, a very popular theme… the width of the submenu is almost the same I used too. Of course two columns have the double width.

Hi Manuel,

I think a comment got lost in the Envato problems I got an email about, if you already got this, sorry for doubling up!

Some of my products don’t have a featured image that is full width on the single product page (730px)

In the main shop page with a wall of thumbs, these images get pulled out of proportion. Is there an option to prevent this? I wouldn’t mind if these images have white space on the sides in the wall.

You can compare the image on product page and wall with this example: http://www.print-art-read.com/product/characters-marie-cecile-thijs/

Thanks!

Sorry for the noob question.

I want the website in 3 different languages? how i do that?

pixedelic

I think the best way is to use WPML plugin: http://wpml.org/ Otherwise you can try a free plugin (but I don’t support them) or three different installation, maybe by using a Wordpress Network.

Manuel :-)

Manuel,

I am considering buying your beautiful forte template.

Some questions: How do I get Helvetica Neue? In the menu, am I able to make a double drop down as news and people?

Home Company >About Us >People >news >Contact Us Products

Quick question: I’m using woocommerce, and for the main store page I’m using the “Grid of Two Columns Wide Thumbs (16:9)”. But let’s say I wanted to embed some products on a post using the woocommerce shortcode: [recent_products per_page=”12” columns=”2” orderby=”date” order=”desc”]

How would I go about getting the results of the embeded shortcode products to match the look of the “Grid of Two Columns Wide Thumbs” style?

Thanks!

(Sorry for the double account thing. I accidentally created a second account a while back, wish there was a way to merge them.)

Hi Manuel

How did you add the ‘Apply Coupon’ field to the Cart page?

I already activated Coupons, but it is only added to the address page, not shown in Cart like yours?!!?

Default-user
kmorgen Purchased

Hi Manuel

Cannot get the ‘Apply Coupon’ in Cart to be displayed :-( I can see there is a WooCommerce folder in your theme, and these are versioned 1.6 – So could it be that all this code could cause some problems with WooCommerce 2.0.8?

Also have some problems with the Sidebar Cart, where sometimes the buttons change appearance/place (and seem like a little arrow is shown). It also does this in your Demo, so not sure if WC problem or theme.

Finally I cannot translate several of your theme based WooCommerce changes/strings (for example payment dropdown description fields, VAT text.). These are normally easily translated with WPML String Translation, but not sure if your code overrule this?

pixedelic

Hi kmorgen,

the demo is running WooCommerce 2.0.8 as well. You should let me enter your admin, because I don’t know about anything else with this issues and I need to understand if they are due to one of your plugins, for instance, or something else on your end only.

About the Sidebar Cart… I’ve never seen any problem on my demo site, but I’ll investigate.

About WPML: it works fine as far as I know, but remember, some strings are in the theme, some other are in the plugin, they are mixed, so you must translate both.

I’ve read several people have had this same problem, but I’ve not yet seen a solution… Any idea how to fix it?

I have a large logo- 782x121 px which seems to cause menu confusion. My site is showing the regular menu as well as the dropdown as you can see here: http://www.mortalmommy.com/

Also, it seems the header is floating over the body and making necessary parts of the body invisible without having changed any settings.

I’ll be working on this, but any advice you have would be appreciated. Thanks!

Got rid of the double navigation which shrank the header enough to make the tops of pages mostly visible.

Now I only have dropdown navigation though. How do I have regular navigation at normal screen widths while keeping my large logo?

Default-user
CNOwens Purchased

Strike that. The navigation is appearing differently on different pages, which makes no sense to me. So… same two problems.

1. Double navigation- normal and dropdown simultaneously. 2. Header is covering up the body. I chose the option in the settings to not float as well as added the ‘catch-all’ CSS about floating, didn’t change it.

Thanks.

Ciao Manuel, ti ho scritto sul forum di supporto ma forse c’e’ un po’ di ressa in questi giorni e non volevo disturbarti piu’ di tanto. Come ti dicevo la scorsa settimana, ti ho mandato anche una mail, ho dei seri problemi con il plugin WPML su Forte. Per poco non perdevo tutto. Quando attivo il plugin la gallery della home sparisce e succedono cose davvero strane, tipo che mi da una marea di messaggi di fatal error e cosi via. Se non fosse stato per il backup non avrei ripristinato il sito. Ora, ovviamente non posso evitare di tradurre il sito, devo per forza. Puoi aiutarmi indicandomi una possibile soluzione?

Grazie mille a presto!

I have problem,, when I try to activate theme I got this message Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/a3599248/public_html/wp-admin/includes/template.php on line 633

Any suggestion?

Hi Petra,

the best plugin I think is WPML and I try to give compatibility with it. It is a bit complicated, but I don’t know a easier and more useful solution.

Gentile Manuel

I recently set up Forte and are having trouble with the contact form, it will not send emails (Sorry, unexpected error. Please try again later ). I’ve tried setting up email via SMTP (WP SMTP) and it will send test emails correctly (from the plugin setup and test page in WP settings). I’m using Forte on: WP: 3.5.2 WPML Multilingual CMS: 2.9 WP SMTP: 1.1.6 WP Super Cache: 1.4 (currently deactivated)

Any ideas are very welcome. Cordiali saluti

Hi,

It’s been awhile but I still haven’t heard back. The problem with my site is that it takes an extremely long time to load and I was using a VPS server. The slideshow seems to take a really long time to finish loading, as well as the navigation menu. Is there a possible fix for this? Is this due to some coding for the script?

thanks

pixedelic

Hi,

I’m sorry for my late reply… still moving to a new server, my apologies.

However I made some tests on your site with Pingdom. Sometimes it returns bad result and sometimes pretty good results, even if, I admit the demo loads faster and its size is the double than your site.

But: you could try to disable the animation on the menu, because the slideshow, to avoid flickering issues, starts after that.

You should also take a look to the report of Pingdom: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/dXFMUY/http://www.wagavenue.com/

If you scroll down the page you can see it is unable to find some files:

IMG_1223-470×352.jpg?5ebb10

IMG_09631-470×352.jpg?5ebb10

IMG_1132-470×352.jpg?5ebb10

You should remove them or try to fix them.

Let me know.

I fixed it but it was still pretty strange. It had something to do with a double importer…. So I deleted the Wordpress one and kept the one that was in your theme… Well problem solved ;D

Hi I am thinking of purchasing this theme, it looks great.

However, I looked at the demo on my iPhone (default browser, Safari i guess) and the portfolio doesn’t show up at all, could the author tell me if this is a known fault?

Also, can I use the regular license if I am looking to sell subscriptions to access to a members section to access premium content? Through something like Tinypass? All the website will be free to access except the premium content, which will be my own original content.

Thanks in advance for any help :)

Default-user

Hey thanks for the response, that works fine:) I have realised it is the Dark skin demo which seems to have the problem. Just to let you know the portfolio does not show up on the dark skin demo for on the homepage or the portfolio page.

That’s cool about the license, ill get in touch with Envato to double check:) Thanks again for the quick response! :)

Hello Manuel,

Thanks so much for this great theme. I’ve bought it twice so far. Quick question: How can I turn off the “nav menu logic”? We want to move the navigation menu to its own “line” under the logo, but when we use CSS to do that, the drop-down menu is triggered and both menu show on the screen.

Default-user

Hey Manuel,

We’re just looking for where the CSS code is (the line) where we can change the “logic” for the logo + nav trigger. We just want to permanently move the nav under the logo without the double menu being triggered. I get why it does that, I just can’t find the media query that does it…thanks.

Hello
  1. We would like to know how many page templates the theme supports – full width, sidebar, double sidebar, etc;
  2. Also, we hear there are problems with many themes on themeforest concerning the code; do you guarantee that this is clean code following wordpress standards? No offense meant; just wanting to be sure because we really love the look of the theme.
  3. Finally, the slider – can it take full width video or only images with a video layer like in your demo.
Kind regards

I am so confused about portfolio/galleries… Is there any video that I could follow? I’ve created single portf items but I can’t make the page to work as masonry or grid..Please, please, make a tutorial..

1. I figured out the portfolio part… Ufff… I also imported my portfolio items from a different gallery and I had to set the template for each image to WIDE and regenerated the thumbnails (even though they were wide/tall enough they looked skewed) That worked!

2. I still have a problem with the BLOG. I have a page for BLOG set as Default with a created BlogSidebar. In the admin panel I have Latest Posts set to WALL of 4:3 and picked the Blog page from the dropdown. In my reading settings I have also that page chosen… Doesn’t work…No content no sidebar. The only time it works is if I have the thumb + expert picked…

I’m working with the theme tester plugin, so I can’t show exactly..but I think I described correctly.

3. Also, still struggling with the double navigation (normal plus the drop down showing) but I think someone had this problem above, so I’ll look for it…

Thank you Manuel!
