1 – It’s possible add more imagens when create new campaign?

You can add images to the content area below the main intro block at the top of the page.

2 – Add more form fields when create new campaign?

If you’re familiar with PHP, you can add new form fields. See http://themeforest.net/item/franklin-wordpress-crowdfunding-theme/5063650/faqs/20492 for an example. If you’re not familiar with PHP, I would recommend hiring a developer who can assist with this.

3 – Show photos for backers non user gravatar?
This is not possible by default. You would need to use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/add-local-avatar/ or http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-local-avatars/ and integrate an upload field with the profile form.
4 – Works with latest version of wordpress (4.1)

The latest version of WP is 4.0—yes, it works.

Cheers, Eric

Hi,

I’m really interested in the theme, but just trying to get more information and do a bit of a research on what the theme offers. I see people are talking about the Paypal Adaptive payments and different campaign types, Flexible and All or Nothing.

I know that i could run the theme straight out of the box with just a standard Paypal, and this would only collect funds as donations, correct ? And I wouldn’t be able to take a share of each donation, because the paypal standard doesn’t split the payments right ?

Im looking into starting a donation based site, but I would take a % fee out of every donation. So for this reason, I would need the PPAdaptive payments to split the donation to primary receiver ( the campaign owner ) and secondary, ( that would be me ) correct ?

But then, do I need the Pre-Approvals at all ??

Can I use the Flexible campaign type to collect the donations and process them immediately without the pre-approvals or does the Flexible type only allow me to collect and process the funds once the campaign has finished ??

Thanks

Studio164a

With flexible campaign types, money is distributed at the end of the campaign, regardless of whether the goal has been reached.

If you want to have the money come in automatically, you would need to use a donation gateway (like the default Paypal gateway). You would set it up so that money goes to the site, and then you manually distribute it to the campaign creators.

Cheers, Eric

Hi,

I would like to change the head of my campaign page. Now there’s a part of the content of my campaign above the support button. I would like to change that to my campaign title. Can you tell me how I can do that? Here is a link to my site: http://www.athlevo.be/?download=test-8

Thanks

Studio164a

Hi Michael,

You would need to modify the campaign-blurb.php template using your child theme. By default the block above the picture and support button has the campaign excerpt.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the fast reply, you helped me a lot!!

No worries :)

Is there a simple way of changing the text on buttons, etc. I would like to change; Support, Pledged, Pledge, donate.

I do see the two spots within Campaigns > Settings > Misc – Complete purchase text – Add to cart text

I have changed these, but they do not seem to affect the campaign. Where exactly are these reflected when the change is made?

Can you please explain and easy way to change these few labels throughout the campaigns. Could this be considered in an update…it seems like many would like to be able to easily customize these labels.

Thank you

Hello? I have posted this question and submitted support.

Studio164a

I replied to your email. Cheers, Eric

Got the reply…thank you!

How do I change the colour of the Pledge button text?

Studio164a

You would need to do this with CSS. You can stick your custom CSS in the child theme, or use this plugin:

Cheers, Eric

Hi, We have some part have to custom make from this theme, could you please send us your contact email for more discussion? Thank you.

Studio164a

You can get in touch with us via our profile. Please note that at this stage we are not able to take on any custom development work though.

Cheers, Eric

Is it possible to change the main super-size image on the campaign page so that it is a video?

Studio164a

There is no built-in option to do that. You would need to override the single campaign template file in your child theme and make the change you want to make.

Cheers, Eric

Default-user

I’ve noticed that this image is linked in with the campaign widget (not sure if it is called the campaign widget or the Latest Projects widget or what). Would making this change also change the photo in the widget? I’d like to have them different, if possible….

Studio164a

It depends on how you change them. You can certainly change one without changing the widget.

Hi Eric. Love your theme and the level of support. The theme deserves to be more widely known. It would really work for me if I were able to add ’Location’ to campaigns. I’m looking to set up a site that allows people to search for specific projects in their area (town, city based). Is this a possibility for a future release maybe? Please! :- )

PS Actually, I can see there IS a ‘Locations’ field in the ‘Create campaign’ page; my question then is: Is there some way I can pull that out so that users can to use it for sorting and filtering campaigns based on location (in the same way you can sort based on Category)?

Studio164a

There is no built-in way to achieve that. I would recommend getting in touch with a developer who could set up this customization for you.

Cheers, Eric

Hello Eric, My www.AeroBackers.com website is finally live and I have 5 live projects posted. The settings are such that backers do not have to pay until the end of the project if the goal is achieved. For any of the five live projects, if a backer wants to back a project, he completes this page http://www.aerobackers.com/checkout/ the page throws an error message “the user is not allowed to perform this action” which means no project can be funded and I am wasting the time of any potential user who wants to back a project. Can you please advise how this serious problem can be fixed, many thanks.

Studio164a

I’m not sure why you would be seeing that message. It’s not in Easy Digitial Downloads or Franklin, so it must be coming from one of the extensions you have installed. Could you try asking on the Easy Digital Downloads support forums, since they may know why this would be happening?

Cheers, Eric

OK I have posted this issue on their forum. I wonder if I will get a response as I have never been able to get responses to previous issues posted on their forum. BTW I deactivated all the plugins except those required by the Franklin theme and still get this error message. I suspect this issue is related to the “All or nothing” check box for projects to be funded. Before I selected this button it was possible for projects to be funded. If Easy Digital Downloads will not help who I can turn to for this to be resolved? If they have not responded in a few days they will never respond, that I know from past experience with them. I await your suggestions.

Studio164a

You could try hiring one of the consultants listed on their website:

Hey,

I wanted to display the backers in a list format (currently a grid) can it be changed? If so how can I do it?

M

Studio164a

There is no built-in way to do that. You would need to create a new template in your child theme with the backers in a list.

Thank you for the reply Eric, I will try it.

quick question: can i show more than 20 backers, it seems to limit it to 20 .

thanks

Studio164a

You should be able to set that in the widget configuration.

Hi Eric. Are there any plans to include in future releases the option to add ‘stretch’ goals—or would that need to happen at the EDD end? Cheers. Gary

PS I mean any plans to do so in your planned replacement for Astoundify Crowdfunding rather than the Franklin theme of course.

Studio164a

Hi Gary,

It wouldn’t be a core feature, but could possibly make sense as a paid extension.

Cheers, Eric

Hi, I need the template for a closed crowd funding campaign at which a fixed amount of money is distributed upon a couple of SUPPORTERS. Those supporters than should fund projects they like. Hence, they do not distribute their own money and my question: is is possible to allocate money to the funders?

Thanks a lot!!

Studio164a

Nope, it’s not set up to do that.

Cheers, Eric

Hi Eric. Is it possible do you know, by inserting shortcodes or using other simple means, to group together a number of campaigns on a page (e.g. recently added campaigns, or most funded campaigns, or new campaigns, say)? I feel there must be some way of doing this without too much pain. Cheers for any suggestions. Gary

Default-user
gazanson Purchased

Thanks Eric. Can I strongly encourage you to investigate adding such functionality? It’s great that you can group by ‘featured’ but I’m certain the theme would compete better with other crowdfunding themes (like ‘Backer’) if you offered refinements like these (recently added, most funded, new), that kind of thing. Its great that you’re planning a next major release (I think I read somewhere) but I do hope you are looking to review, and get more competitive with, the other crowdfunding offerings. I love your theme Eric, but believe you could do so much better with it sales wise. Especially given your investment of effort in a replacement for Astoundify! On that, I wish you well. Cheers. Gary

Studio164a

Thanks for the feedback Gary. We’ll take stock of some new ideas after we’ve pushed out the next major update.

Dear Eric Multiple Rewards does not work on the front end. I tried to click on ”+ Add Reward” but it doesn’t work. it just scroll to the top of the page. If i use the admin site to add a campaign ”+ Add reward” on the admin screen is working perfectly fine. I tried to stop all the plug-ins, but it’s same result…. Regards,

Hi Eric. My ‘Browse by Category’ option only displays 4 of my 7 categories on my home page. Can I adjust that limit in the theme somewhere? Cheers. Gary

Studio164a

Hi Gary,

That would be the case if 3 of the categories are empty (i.e. they have no campaigns in them yet). It is only set to show categories with campaigns in them.

Cheers, Eric

One more question please Eric —how are tags used in the create campaign forms/page? I can see provision to add them when creating a campaign but the demo site doesn’t seem to make use of them to give me any pointers about their value etc. for sorting/filtering campaigns. Cheers.

Studio164a

Hi Gary,

Tags are not really utilized anywhere in the theme.

Cheers, Eric
