Hi there,

I noticed in the mobile version there’s no button to upload photos on a new post – only the desktop site seems to have that feature. Is that something that would be easy to enable?

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in our product.

However, the theme hasn’t supported upload photo on a new post in Mobile version. You can just upload the text.

Hi ! I have some questions about this theme :

=> Does it’s possible to create a static page who show in the menu ?

=> I see there is a calandar, does it’s possible to create an event ?

=> For each categories :

- does it’s possible to create a post format with multi textfield who we must insert data like width, heigth, ect. for this categorie ? If it’s not possible, can we show text exemple in the post ?

- does it’s possible the categorie is only event, only for video, only for showing product (not for selling) ?

thank you forward for your answers !

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in our product.

Here are your answers:

1. About the static page, you can set a static front page for the site following: visit your admin panel > choose Settings > Reading > Front page display.

2. The theme hasn’t supported to create events yet.

3. About the “post format”, maybe you can create a thread and stick it above so that users can read.

4. You can create the categories based on your preference in the admin panel. Choose Engine settings > Settings > Content.

You can check out the features by visiting our demo site here:

Hi there, we have been following your theme for some time and think it’s really great. We will be purchasing this theme very soon, if not, still today.

We have some pre-sale questions, if you could please help:

1. Is it possible for guest postings with an email verification to confirm their post?

2. Is it possible to have a plain text editor with link and image fields under that? (Or alternatively, a plain text editor with just a link and image icon) Want to make it as simple as possible for those posting.

Scenario of point 2: The guest/user clicks the form where they start typing and selecting category. The editor / description form is only plain text with no formatting at all. Under the description form will be a link field for links and another field to browse for images.

Is this possible, if not, would you consider this in an update?

3. Is it possible for the user to create/update their profile (editing of image/avatar, personal bio etc) immediately upon user registration? Almost force them to update the profile..

4. Are the update notifications live on the frontend?

5. Does theme customization have the ability to add custom CSS?

6. The updates feature show blogging (existing) – does this mean the theme is just blog ready with existing blogs/themes or does ForumEngine have a styled blog itself? Please could we have a link to demo on what the blog looks like.

Great work! We’re extremely excited to start working with this theme for our new project.

Regards

Hope you will be our customer soon. Thank you Best Regards,

Thank you for this. It’s not quite the answers we’re looking for but we have bought the theme anyway.

The customization of CSS on this theme is very limited even when using a child theme. For instance a lot of your custom styles are in bootstrap.css and others… Which at the end of the day will make it harder to keep track of when updating the theme.

Nonetheless, it is still great theme and system. The only issues are:

1. Customization of CSS (be able to do in backend of wordpress like a custom css box in settings.

2. Setting configurations are very limited.

3. Mobile flaws and issues – not being able to post images or update the users profile correctly they are unable to upload a new avatar…

However, I am sure you will be improving these features as the theme grows. We will use the support ticketing system for support.

Hi Completeinnovation,

Thanks for your feedback.

We will take your advice for further consideration and development.

Have nice day.!

Hi, like to substitute our actual bbpress forum by forum engine. One of my main issues is the post title format. I need it as textarea, what I also had to adjust in bbpress. Is it possible to adjust that in forum engine too or is there anything what will prevent such an adjustment?

Hi,

Since we haven’t tried it, we can’t give you a certain answer.

However, if you can use it with bbpress, we think you can do it with ForumEngine too. It requires some coding work of course, you can post a thread in our forum and our technical support staffs will give you a detailed answer:

Can I have option to moderate topics before they publish on my site and before readers can read the new topic? Moderation is compulsory for us because we are getting many spam post getting published even without our permission. So we manually moderate all topics requested by our users. We also allow users to add topic without registration but by providing name and email ID.

Is this theme providing moderation options? Reply asap… We are deciding about our forum theme..

Does it use bbpress forum plugin or its own build system?

Can I set user to create new topic without need of sign up? They just need to provide name and email id?

Hi Ayurtimes,

Thanks for your interest in our product.

1. Can I have option to moderate topics before they publish on my site and before readers can read the new topic?

=>You can enable this function http://i.imgur.com/clLONug.png so that each thread needs the admin approval to be in public.

2. Moderation is compulsory for us because we are getting many spam post getting published even without our permission.

=>Now, ForumEngine is supporting Captcha function to prevent spam.

3. We also allow users to add topic without registration but by providing name and email ID.

=> No, it is not a feature in ForumEngine.

4. Does it use bbpress forum plugin or its own build system?

=>It’s our own system, not bbpress.

Thanks for your patience.

Regards,
