Hi,

Think I’m gonna buy this but can’t find any option to block abusive members. Is there a way to block members?

Thanks

Hi,

ForumEngine will release the ban feature just in the short time! Please follow our posts on blog page (http://www.enginethemes.com/blog/) to get the exact time.

Thanks for interest in ForumEngine theme! :)

Hello! Really nice the theme, I am having problems with the “Terms and condition” Page. I have filled the page with my own terms and conditions. But when I sign with a new user and I make a click in the link “I agree to the terms” it sends me to a blank page. Then I go inside my wordpress dashboard and check that a new page of “Terms and Conditions” have been made automatically and there is where the link redirect new users…

Still waiting!!

Hi,

Love the theme.

I’m having issue when it comes to posting a new topic as a member.

This error keeps appearing on the path above the thread topic…

“Warning: Division by zero in /home/ethand90/public_html/wp-content/themes/forumengine/includes/template.php on line 85

Warning: Division by zero in /home/ethand90/public_html/wp-content/themes/forumengine/includes/template.php on line 86”

Any ideas on why that is happening?

Nevermind. I just commented out the javascript that was causing the issue. The issue I’m having now is that it isn’t allowing users to post replies to comments on a thread.

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Our staff got your email about javascript issue already. They are checking your issue at this moment! They will notify via email when it is done.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hi there! Thanks for checking ForumEngine out. So how do you find our theme? Remember, there are 2 ways you can tell us your thoughts:
  • Rate ForumEngine
  • Shoot a comment.

    We’d appreciate if you can do both. :)

Hi,

First of all, it is a great theme with a unique design and concept! ... However I have some questions:

1. In the screenshots I see the “Inbox” field in the pop-up box and the notification bubble on the profile image. How can I enable this feature on my site?

2. How can I remove the taxonomy base from the URL for thread, thread-category and reply taxonomies ? I tried with some plugins or changed the slug from threads.php but it’s not working. I get 404 errors.

3. Where are the “Highline” feature (with the star icon) and the Flag or Report icon? I don’t have this features on my theme.

Also, I would love to see some features like:

- threads to load on infinite scrolling;

- left and right sidebars;

- instead of “like system”, the vote system with + and – would be more efficient, so you could filter the threads or replies in a widget with “TOP” or “The most popopular”. .. I think.

- an option to embed videos;

- a way to manage users with options like: ban, remove, edit, PM, warn

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Thanks for your kind words! Here are the answers to your questions:

1. ForumEngine has supported notification number on “All posts” tab. When you log in your account, you may know how many your followed threads that were updated.

2. The slug of taxonomy isn’t allow to remove out the URL of thread-category and reply taxonomies. It is default of WP.

3. The “Highline” feature has been supported for JobEngine theme only. ForumEngine doesn’t include it.

About your more suggestions:
  • Currently, ForumEngine supports to embed videos. You may copy the video link and put it in thread or reply content.
  • As an admin, you are possible edit, remove a user through back-end. All users are possible to PM a member via “Contact Me” feature when they visit his page (author page). “Ban” feature will be added in next updates of ForumEngine.
  • Regarding others, we will consider to discuss them.

    Thanks for doing business with us!

Hi,

1,How do I remove the “WordPress Forum Theme – Powered by WordPress” branding from the footer?

2,Can I have the forum open to all users so that they can reply without having to be signed in?

I would like to have banner ads in between the posts…Would this be difficult to do and would I be able to put ads in the message reply’s…Say as in putting adsense code blocks in reply editor?

Thanks.:)

Default-user

Great suggestions from elfbiogreen too! I would also like to see:

- threads to load on infinite scrolling;

- left and right sidebars;

Thank you. :)

Default-user

Am I right in assuming you have disabled all the page editor options in the theme?

Does this mean I can’t use the page editor to add content or ads to the set layout pages such as the home page? :/

Thanks

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Have you bought ForumEngine yet? We can’t find you in our customers list. You will get the detail instruction about posting without having to log in as soon as you buy our theme.

Regarding adding ads in content of thread and reply, you are able to embed an image or a video link for your purpose. We mentioned it before, you are not possible to put javascript code like Google Adsense in the editor. It is really dangerous for your site, if a user put a script to break your site. So that, all editors are not allow to put js code.

You may create a new page template and set is as your homepage. Or, creating new default WP page and use it as your homepage.

Best.

Hi,

I updated my theme via ftp and now my menu has disappeared?

Any ideas?

Thanks.

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Thanks for your all sharing!

Regarding your questions, here are the answers:

1. Please put your Google plus link in Engine Settings > Settings > General. Then, the icon will show on your ForumEngine’s footer.

2. ForumEngine hasn’t controlled the sticky thread time yet. The position of threads will be updated whenever they have got new reply.

3. Please send your WP admin account and your site URL to support@enginethemes.com. Our staff will check the login and reply features on your ForumEngine.

4. We will consider to add one plus side. I will send your suggestion to our developers.

Best. :)

Default-user

Hi,

1, The google icon isn’t showing when I put the google plus link in the suggested box? I had already done this anyway and it’s just not working? my url looks like this but I have changed the numbers (only)for this message:

https://plus.google.com/b/1066873160662584/posts

That is how it should look isn’t it?

2, All the new threads on my forum home page start at 12 hours old? They don’t update on the home page, they just go to the next hour so a one hour old thread is 13 hours old? They do show the correct time inside the thread but on the forum home page the timing goes from 12 hours to say 13 hours old when it’s one hour old inside.

Surely there’s something we can do about that? Any suggestions would be very helpful.:)

Many Thanks.

Hi, can I limit an entire thread category to only some specified member group, e.g. admins, to post and edit. For example, the online documentation forum is limit to admins only, but everyone can read the post.

Thank you!

enginewpthemes

Hi,

This feature is not supported in the current version yet. It is a great idea. We will consider to discuss and add it in our plans list.

Hi Folks,

A suggestion for anyone wanting to put ads in their posts.

It was suggested earlier in the thread to get ads into the forum replies, we could post pics in the editor and link to the hop link.

I tried this but it’s not ideal and is very time consuming because you have to save or screen capture the image first and then add it to the post.:( That does work but none of the animation will work and it looks dull.

There is a plugin called Insert HTML Snippet (V 1.0.1) that takes html and javascript and converts it into a neat little shortcode. Add your code snippet to the super easy to use editor in the plugin and it spits a nice safe shortcode for you to slide into your post!!

You can have as many animated amazon ads in your posts as you like!! I haven’t tested it extensively but the heavy javascript code blocks from places like chitika seems to break the page?:/

Some of the ads look great though and if your an admin you can just go into any of the already posted comments and add some ads wherever you like without having to make posts up in a name and add pics and code and all that shiz.

I love this plugin and can see it becoming one of my most used wordpress plugins because it’s very very versatile and useful for all kinds of situations!! It also works like a dream is very compact and hasn’t broken anything …Yet?

Have fun!!

Default-user

My pleasure!

I have now tested some google ads with this and they seem to work fine as long as your willing to play with the settings a bit.

Google ads work in the sidebar as normal text blocks as they should and as shortcodes inside the posts.:) However, I do feel there is a loss in overall page load performance but haven’t had time to check that out?

We still have big big issues with this sidebar width and I need to widen to at least 250 px but I am waiting for your reply to my extensive email I sent via our external email chat.

Many thanks.

Does the categories work exactly as the post categories ?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

The categories list is thread’s categories. It is a custom post type not the default post type of WordPress.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. :)

Hi am getting this error when i select unlimited posting scrolling. what should i do ?

Warning: Wrong parameter count for round() in /home2/sak123/public_html/wp-content/themes/forumengine/front-page.php on line 189

Default-user

ok i will send the details but regarding the threads even if there is no action on any thread , no replys, likes, or anything is still not sorted correctly.

Default-user

can i change it even there was action not be updated to the top ?

enginewpthemes

Hi,

We replied your email already. You are using the old version of PHP. Please clear cache and check your site!

Regarding modification, you have to edit ForumEngine code. It is quite complicated! Please hire a developer to develop it.

Best.

I still have an error inside a discussion : Warning: Wrong parameter count for round() in /home2/sak123/public_html/wp-content/themes/forumengine/single-thread.php on line 409

i have sent an email to support also.

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Please clear cache carefully and test your site again. We can post thread, reply normally on your site (http://medium.qa/thread/test/).

Best.

Default-user

ok you fix something but also other pages are still wrong, you have fixed the frontpage and inside a discussion what you missed is under “Following” page , and also under the Category Page

Warning: Wrong parameter count for round() in /home2/sak123/public_html/wp-content/themes/forumengine/taxonomy-thread_category.php on line 183

Warning: Wrong parameter count for round() in /home2/sak123/public_html/wp-content/themes/forumengine/page-following.php on line 123

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Our staff fixed on those pages already!

We mentioned that you are using the old version of PHP. Please send a request to your hosting provider to update the new PHP version for your server.

It should be from version 5.3.

Hey guys, Your product looks pretty interesting. But the cost seems to high for a forum. Could you please lower the price at least for a limited time. I bet your sales will take off if you consider it :)

enginewpthemes

Thanks for your suggestion! We had considered to get the suitable price carefully before we released ForumEngine. Sincerely, we can’t change its price.

Again, thanks for your interest in ForumEngine! :)

Hi, is there any compatible editor plugin to your lovely template? I want to have more/extended editor options. Thanks!

enginewpthemes

Hi,

Thanks for your question! It is not supported in the current version of ForumEngine. You have to modify ForumEngine’s code if you wish to use 3rd plugin for editor.

Please contact to support@enginethemes.com to get more instruction.

Best.

Hi, Do you plan on adding a ranking feature (+ , -) where users can rank up/rank down posts? Or perhaps a “recommend” style button where users can recommend posts and based on the # of recommends that post goes higher in the appearance on the page. Perhaps there’s a plugin for this? Thanks!

enginewpthemes

Thank for your suggestion. Our developers will consider to discuss it!

Have a nice weekend.
