Very disapointed with this theme,fresh install and problems arise.

New members when they sign up dont get the option to upload profile image Profile URLS are 404s pages No option to edit profile while logged in

Would like some help please,as these are very basic fails that should never happen upon install.

Lets just hope this is all that goes wrong,50 dolars its alot of money.

How can I update the theme ?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Please download new version of ForumEngine on your ThemeForest account. Then, you can upload your new version into your server through FTP account.

Please note one thing that you should backup your current version in case you applies any customization in ForumEngine theme.

Thanks.

Hi there this theme looks good just one question before i purchase does this theme allow for a top navigation bar like the one in your support or only footer navigation?

Thanks

also the likes extension do you have to pay for that seperately even after purchasing this one?

Thanks

Hi Keny,

Thanks for your interest in our product! The default design of ForumEngine hasn’t got the top navigation bar. It has only footer navigation.

$53 is the price of ForumEngine theme only. Currently, it has FE Ideas extension, you may take a look on our extensions to check more info and price at http://www.enginethemes.com/extensions/.

Cheers

I saw your new update today and quickly jump for it, but only to be disappointed. There has not been any major improvement on MOBILE DEVICE editor. You cannot login with Facebook and Twitter. Also you cannot update image on Mobile. Again, the following 2 major improvement were requested ever since, and yet no change:

(1) Mobile Facebook & Twitter Login (2) Mobile image upload

Please how do you want to respond to this?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

The login feature on Facebook and Twitter will be included in next updates of ForumEngine.

I will send the Mobile image upload feature to our developers. Hopefully, they will discuss it in our next meeting.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Hi there,

With the exception of not being able to upload an image via mobile phone (should be standard in this day and age) I really do love this forum style, it is quite different. My question is though I currently run a wordpress website and have recently installed bbPress forum within my wordpress site. However bbPress really does look ugly and for someone like me who is not a developer, it will be quite difficult to change this. So I look to your forum. Can your forum be installed within wordpress so that all I need to do is click on ‘Forum’ page and see your forum or does this forum style need to be installed within its own root domain / subdomain?

I’m really hoping it can be installed just like bbPress, straight into my current wordpress site?

Will users who register on my wordpress site automatically be able to post as members on my enginewpthemes forum or will they need to re-register for that?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

We are sorry for the late response! The ForumEngine has been built as a standalone WP theme so you can’t use it as a plugin with other WP themes. However, it is possible to use with another themes if you activate WP multisite feature. Also, if the current user role of your site is Subscriber, your user can use his account on ForumEngine theme as well!

Thanks for your interest in our product!

Can google adsense ads be placed in the side bar of the forum?

enginewpthemes

Google Adsense can be shown through Text widget on ForumEngine sidebar! ^^

Roughly when will you be creating a plug-in version of your forum so that I could possibly use your forum and install it as plugin for my bbPress site?

enginewpthemes

Thanks for your suggestion! However, a plugin version for ForumEngine is not planning at this moment.

Thanks for your support!

Pre-purchase question.

1. Users need to know what topics/comments they wrote. Is there a panel for user’s topic/comment list to manage for users? If not, would you give me some hints to customize the codes by myself?

2. During writing something in editor, can I see uploading images directly instead of seeing “[img] ... [/img]”tags? (I know there is a ‘show preview’ check box’) or you can tell me where to customize..

3. Just curious, the front-end posting module, is there any relations with ‘fancy editor’ of bbpress? because it looks like similar.

Thank you :)

Hi Jonny,

We are sorry for the late response! Honestly, it is difficult to give you the best suggestion if we can’t visit your site and check your settings. In case the replies tab is not shown on your back-end, maybe your installation has got the error.

Please try to upload your site on a domain and we will help you more!

Sorry for this inconvenience!

I’m interested in purchasing this theme to use with an existing site. It looks like it’s using custom post types – is it possible to use this with existing posts on an active Wordpress install? In other words, once activated Posts show up as Threads and Comments as Replies from existing wordpress posts? Thanks!

enginewpthemes

Hi,

We are using the custom post type to build Threads system so you can’t use your existing posts to show on ForumEngine. You have to modify your database if you wish to keep your current posts on ForumEngine.

Thanks for your interest in our product!

Hi, I’m interested in this theme. Is it possible to submit URL Posts and get url featured image or favicon or og:image (like redddit link posts)

Just in case it’s not possible could you make this extra work for me? I’m willing to pay for it if necessary.

Best,

enginewpthemes

Hi Unza,

Thanks for your interest in our product! Thread hasn’t supported the post URL and featured image. Also, we stopped providing customization services as well. We recommend you to hire other developers to develop your site more!

Thanks.

I would buy this if it had a “blog mode” alternative to the “forum mode” function where blog mode would use the standard post/comment type instead of a custom post type/replies. The theme would probably be more appealing and grab higher sales if existing content could be easily compatible with the theme (blog mode).

Anyway, it’s a great theme and can’t wait to see what you guys build next.

enginewpthemes

Thanks for your suggestion! Currently, ForumEngine has supported the blog section already. It will help you list blog posts on your site. Please take a look on the footer menu of ForumEngine.

Regards

Hi,

I saw your theme QAEngine and I loved your badges system in there: http://themeforest.net/item/qaengine-question-and-answer-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/7972399

There is anyway to Enable that on Forumengine Theme? Even if I’d buy both themes, there is anyway to integrate it from one theme to other? (via plugin or something).

Best,

enginewpthemes

Hi Unza,

Thanks for your interest in our product! ForumEngine hasn’t supported the user badges feature as QAEngine theme yet and also, they are standalone WP themes so we can’t combine them like plugins.

Sorry for the late response!

Hi

The demo forum is not responsive at all…is there something wrong ?

Is this theme supports multisite install ? I got a network and need to add a forum as a new site to it as support

Thx
