Is possible read a question without change page directly on first page?

Hi,

We are so sorry for the late response!

Currently, the first page of ForumEngine shows the title of questions only. You have to visit the single thread page to read the question detail.

Feel free to contact us with any question!

This forum can be in french ?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

ForumEngine has got the built-in translator that helps you localize your site in French. Please take a look on our demo site at: http://enginethemes.com/themes/forumengine/.

Feel free to contact us with any question!

Just to clarify:

1. WP installation is required, but NOT BBpress correct?

2. Do you plan to make a complete WP theme to match this? Just curious why you never created a WP theme for the blog itself, and bbpress would have just used the style globally?

3. Can the forum home page have the traditional forum category layout instead of the latest posts you have now?

Hi Chad,

Thanks for your interest in our product! Here are the answers to your questions:

1. ForumEngine is a standalone WP theme so it does not require any plugin.

2. Unfortunately, we don’t have any plan to make BBpress compatible with ForumEngine.

3. We list all threads on the homepage of ForumEngine. Would you please check our demo site: http://demo.enginethemes.com/forumengine/.

Feel free to contact us with any question!

Is there a notification feed anywhere in the website for the user? For instance, if someone replied to my post or someone contacted me, how does I know as the user?

enginewpthemes

Currently, ForumEngine has got the live notification for new questions only. Whenever your site has got new question, all other live users will get the notification.

Feel free to contact us with any question!

Just realized it’s because you all tack on a bunch of crap in the footer instead of using best practices and including via wp_enqueue_script. May want to document this or at least do it properly.

Hi:

I had wanted this to be a private email but decided to post in the Comments section.

I have bought themes and plugins on this site where the author eventually packs up and calls it a day…..for various reasons (not excluding the fact that they failed to listen to existing and prospective customers’ feedback).

I end up losing money on themes and plugins that has no support!

My view about listening to customers is to follow up on customers’ feedback and not to patronise them by telling them x y z will be in the next update but do nothing about it.

I have decided to test your theme via some other means before buying because I’ve been burnt several times by authors who will not attend to mails or just cant be bothered to improve on their works thereby leaving the buyer in a limbo.

Wonder ThemeForest is doing about this kind of horrible behaviour.

Your theme is a good theme which I would love to buy and use it as a user generated news reporting site.

I have been looking for a platform where people can report a news via their pc or mobile instantly.

Your theme ticks some boxes on mobile but would need a few more features to speed up sales on this theme AND this why I get angry some authors who allow their good work to just die out.

The essence of customer feedback is to improve on service not to feel good about yourself per se!

My Features List:

1. UPLOAD IMAGES VIA MOBILE

If my users could use your theme to upload images and tell their story via their mobile that would have been fantastic! BUT that’s not the case. Is this something that is doable at the moment (perhaps I’m not doing the right thing OR is it something that your devs can quickly do)?

2. SOCIAL LOGIN for MOBILE and SOCIAL SHARING on the theme. SOCIAL LOGIN for MOBILE and SOCIAL SHARING on the theme.

This is a dealbreaker.

Honestly, I think you guys are not hungry for money and are basking in your little sales. Don’t you want to be the Avada of Forum themes???

If you added social sharing for posts and threads and maybe even replies – WOW! It will be a massive feature and turnaround in turnover – trust me!

Even if you do not want to incorporate it yourself why not partner with or plugin author that has a good social share plugin and make it happen!

3. AD PLACEMENTS

Your customers are running a business and need to make money. Provide the opportunity for them to place adverts – both on the sidebar AND in between threads and replies to threads – that will be another fantastic feature.

I hope my email will not be discarded and I do wish things will be improved upon soon.

Thank you.

JD

PS – Can anyone recommend a good content sharing responsive theme that allows users upload images and news items to the site via their mobile (and of course via pc)?

Thank you all.

enginewpthemes

Hi JD,

Thanks for your interest in our product! Here are the answers to your questions:

1. ForumEngine hasn’t supported to upload images on mobile devices. In our opinion, mobile devices have not enough resources to adapt the upload response time in some cases. However, we will discuss it with our developers more.

2. Social login was added into our plan already. Please follow our blog post to get the release time.

3. Thanks for your support! Unfortunately, we don’t have any plan to develop a section to show ads between threads list.

Feel free to contact us with any question!

Hi , nice job i have some questions before buying the theme if i have old posts in my blog does theme work with it correctly or i have to edit some stuff on database , does theme work with the post, comments native tables or it has its post and comments table explain : if i had old post and comment it will work with the template or not ? does it work correctly with Arabic language ? thanks

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in our product.Here are the answers to your questions:

1. Each product will have another way to manage and control database. ForumEngine is using a custom post type: threads to manage threads system. You have to transfer your existing data as our ForumEngine’s data structure, then you can use it.

2. ForumEngine hasn’t supported the RTL language yet. Also, you have to modify your site if you wish to show it in Arabic language.

Looking to migrate from vBulletin 4 and wanted to know the following.

Any official importer for this?

Important features that I need also: - censoring (word filters) - gender based forum access (men cannot access women only forum, vice versa) - anti spam controls - hashtags (tags) and twitter like mentions ”@username”

Would there be any conflicts with these WP plugins too?

Thanks.

enginewpthemes

Hi Chad,

Thanks for your interest in our product! Here are the answers to your questions:

1. ForumEngine hasn’t supported to filter bad words yet.

2. It does not limit accessing by gender as well.

3. ForumEngine hasn’t supported the hashtags feature.

Regarding your last question, unfortunately, we haven’t checked our product with those plugins. Please take a test carefully and let us know the result!

Hi

just bought your theme.. but i had a problem installing it- it said i was missing a css. style sheet.. is this supposed to happen?

I have already emailed you. thanks

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Currently, the download files on your account includes some parts so you shouldn’t upload it on your back-end. You should extract it first and upload the zip theme file only.

Hope is helps!

No bbPress needed?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

The answer is YES. ForumEngine has got many features and you don’t need to use bbPress with it!

Feel free to contact us with any question!

Hi

Good theme! I’ve marked this theme for a long time, before I purchase it, just one pre-sale question, can I change the thread post URL from /topic/post-name to /topic/1? I want to use the post_id to instead of the post slug, is it possible?

Thanks!

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in our product! Currently, ForumEngine hasn’t supported to edit the permalink as /topic/post_id. You have to rewrite permalink if you wish to show it as your need.

Feel free to contact us with any question!

Is there a way to create a page that populates a list of all members?

I want to create a page that is similar to the way members are populated in Engine Settings > Members area in the admin.

Thanks

enginewpthemes

Hi,

You can create a “users” page to list all the members. Once you create a new page, choose the template as ” Users list template”.

If you have further concern, please contact us via support@enginethemes.com, it’ll be more convenient for us to communicate.

Regards,

Default-user

This template does not exist for me. Do you mean that I need to create the “Users list template”? If so, what is the best way to do that?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

I am so sorry for the late response!

You should create new page template that lists all users, you may research this WP tutorial: http://codex.wordpress.org/Page_Templates. Also, it is possible to use our design on page.php file and show your user list.

Hope it helps!

When I select a user, it goes to the user’s profile page. But on this page, no topics attached to this user will appear.

But when I click on Member page template, a page that can with ForumEngine, all topics appear here.

Is this a glitch? If so, please fix.

Because of physical resource of some mobile devices, we decided we don’t implement the upload picture on mobile version!
