Hi there, I like the theme! I just wondered if there was a way to make it more socially reactive? Ie have the discussions posted to Facebook by default?

Many thanks,

Devs.

Hi Devs,

We are sorry for the late response! Currently, ForumEngine allows to share threads to Facebook, Twitter, etc. However, it is not possible to post threads as soon as it created on your site.

Is possible to translate with localization files?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

ForumEngine has got the built-in translator in the backend. You are free to localize your site in your local language. However, it has been possible to show your site in one language for each site only.

Cheers

Hello there,

I am considering this type of forum for my wordpress website. I have some questions…

Can google adsense banners be added to the top, bottom and sides of the forum? This is very important for me that it does, especially at the top end of the forum.

Can youtube videos be added to topic posts and will the videos appear as a video instead of just a link?

Can your forum software be updated i.e. add topics, respond to posts, upload pictures etc using a mobile phone? Given todays environment, this is must feature for me.

Does your forum software come with social links so that topics, posts etc can be liked or shared with all big social companies like facebook, twitter, instagram etc?

Can this forum software be added to a wordpress blog site?

Cheers.

Hi,

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

1. ForumEngine has got some sidebars so you can show your Google adsense banners on them only. If you wish to show more place, you have to change our code.

2. You can put the youtube video links and they will embed well. It supports Youtube and Vimeo.

3. ForumEngine theme allows to post new topics, replies, upload images, etc. Please take a look on our demo site: demo.enginethemes.com/forumengine/.

4. ForumEngine hasn’t allowed to share or like with social networks yet.

5. ForumEngine is a standalone theme so it is not possible to use it with another theme.

I cant get the this theme to post to Facebook page with use of Jetpak Plugin. Do you have any other alternative? This is very important for our operation as you can see from all my comments/questions.

(Jetpak only works when you create “New post.” Your theme does not operate in that pattern). Please note that I will be willing to use anything else that you can suggest that will make your theme be effective in this regard.

Please what is the solution

enginewpthemes

Hi Ynk,

Thread is a custom post type so when you create new thread that means you add new post.

Please contact our support staff through our Forums (http://www.enginethemes.com/forums/), they will check your site and suggest you more!

Thanks.

Hey,

Could it be integrated with another blog theme?
Does it support RTL languages?

Thanks

enginewpthemes

Hi Adi,

ForumEngine is a stand WP theme so it is not possible to integrate with another theme. However, it is possible to work together if you activate multisites WP feature. Research this link to get more info: http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network/.

Also, the default style of ForumEngine is LTR language so you can follow this user guide to change it to RTL language: https://codex.wordpress.org/Right-to-Left_Language_Support.

Frontend customizer is not working. Tested on multiple hosts. WP 3.9.1

Default-user

The problem is there is no alternative way to configure page and content options? Only works with 3.8.x it seems, but that is out of the question. Please provide a fast fix. Thank you!

enginewpthemes

Hi,

It is quite strange because we have tested all our product in WP 3.9.1 already. Would you please send your WP admin account and your site URL to contact@enginethemes.com. We will check your site and let you know the result!

Thanks for checking our product out!

Hi, I wonder if you need to register on the website using this theme to watch the threads? Because I want anyone to have access to see the posts but you need to log in to post a thread.

Thank you.

enginewpthemes

Hi Rinor,

ForumEngine is working as your needs. Currently, all users can visit and view your threads without logging. However, they have to log into an account if they wish to post new thread.

Also, please contact to our developers directly on our Forums: http://www.enginethemes.com/forums/. They will help you check and answer all your issues.

Hi, I have this problem that occurs when I install ForumEngine, the following message appears on my wp-site:

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

I just installed the zip-file as usual on the wp-site.

Also I am wondering how I can obtain the License key to update the theme? Thankful for any kind of help

Is there a problem with Turkish characters?

enginewpthemes

ForumEngine theme will show those characters normally so you can write them on thread and reply content.

Hi, great theme!

What does ‘Status: NEW’ on some posts mean? Also, some posts have a thumbs up / thumbs down option.. what does this option do?

Thanks.

Default-user

Just one more question.. there’s a heart icon beside the names in the most active users list. Is it possible to display a list of the members that have the most likes?

Thanks.

enginewpthemes

Hi,

It is the Idea extension of ForumEngine theme. Your users can share their ideas and others can vote the thumbs up / thumbs down option.

You can get more detail at http://www.enginethemes.com/extensions/.

Hey there,

Is there a capability for forum members to customize the email they receive? For example, receiving an email whenever a new post is made. Or does this have to be manually selected each time using the follow feature?

Thanks, Rachel

enginewpthemes

Hi Rachel,

Only admin can edit all email templates on the admin site. All members will get the same email for the same situation.

Never mind, I download the mobile version and add to theme and it worked!

I have another question, when I try to click on the Social, Content, Email Templates, Language, Updates under SETTING, nothing happen. It seemed like the Link does not active or the AJAX does not work?

Hello, reading the documentation I’m still not sure how ForumEngine stores forum threads. Does it use BBPress, it’s own custom posts or what? What happens if I decide to change the theme later?

Thanks, Alessandro

enginewpthemes

Hello,

Currently, ForumEngine uses it’s own custom posts. After you purchase our theme, you can access all the codes and free to customize.

In case you want to use your database of ForumEngine for different sites, you have to remake the structure.

I would like to ask if it is possible to make the ForumEngine theme private and only viewable to registered users?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

ForumEngine hasn’t required to login to view content. It requests to log into a registered account when you wish to post new thread or reply only.

Great looking forum. Well done. I was wondering if it’s possible to limit users access to certain boards. We are looking to do a forum for a project where there will be six groups of 10 people. Each group should only be able to see the main global board for everyone and their own team specific board. So users from group 1 won’t be able to access the forums for groups 2-6.

enginewpthemes

Hi,

ForumEngine hasn’t supported to detect the specific board for specific user group yet so you have to modify your site if you wish to have this feature.

Hi, I have a couple of presale questions:

1. I would like to use this theme on a subsite. is it compatible with Multisite?

2. I’m already using the UserPro plugin (you can look it up on CodeCanyon) on my main site so it makes sense to use it here too. Would compatibility with your user registration system be a problem?

Thanks!

enginewpthemes

Hi,

ForumEngine supports multisite feature of WP already. You can use it with your other themes on one copy of WP.

Regarding the second question, we haven’t tested our product with UserPro plugin yet so please take a test carefully before using them together!

Hi, What is the current version of Forum Engine you have now? I have version 1.4.9.

Will I get automatic update or notification on dashboard to know if there is new update? This is very critical. Please respond.

enginewpthemes

Hi Ynk,

You bought our product on Themeforest so you can’t update your site on back-end directly. Please download new version on your account and upload it on your server directly.
