WoW! After a week of working on the site, I am still unable to get it up and running correctly. For some reason as a guest user I can only see partial of the campaign displayed. When I select an active campaign I get “The requested content cannot be loaded. Please try again later.” There has to be another option for a funding site without the headaches. Do you offer a paid installation service?

I am interested in buying the theme, I am wondering if there is a way to not use the date. I want to be able to not have a set date for the funding to be finished. I also want the funds to be taken right away and not when the funding period is us.

Can these both be done?

Astoundify

1. This is a feature we are adding see: https://github.com/Astoundify/crowdfunding/issues/164

2. Funds can be taken instantly using the free PayPal gateway included with the plugin or any other gateway that is supported by Easy Digital Downloads, there are 35+ gateways that are compatible.

I got this theme a few days ago and installed on a domain but for testing but I want to use on my new domain am I allowd to unistall from the old and install on my new domain??? it will only be used on 1 domain.

Astoundify

You can use it on one testing domain and use it on another domain, the standard licence allows you to use the theme on one site.

Can someone please explain to me how to access the support forum? What if a person in our team already signed in? Can I create another access for myself?

Astoundify

Only one licence key per account can be created. If you have purchased the Fundify theme and joined our forum using that licence key that account will be used as the main support account for your purchase.

Hope that makes sense.

thanks for your quick feedback!

I’m looking forward to buy this theme as it seems to be the most complete and active one out there for WP. But our project specifically requires funds to be collected right away. This approach is neither “flexible” nor “all-or-nothing”, rather “instant fund collection”.

This option is not yet available as per your themedemo.co version (great for testing out, guys!). Would this be very difficult to code ourselves? Is there already an unofficial hack in your community forum that allows for this third option? Or is it a planned feature?

Keep up the good work! :)

Astoundify

You can do instant collection just use the “Donation” option that the theme provides without installing the PayPal adaptive payments gateway.

The free standard PayPal gateway allows for instant collection of funds or any other gateway that is supported by Easy Digital Downloads, there are 35+ gateways that are compatible.

Default-user

Great. Hadn’t seen that option in the settings. Thanks!

Astoundify

You won’t see it in the settings until you disable the PayPal adaptive payments gateway.

Default-user

Yeah, I found it playing around with the gateway settings. Thanks anyway for pointing it out. It made me buy the theme and I’m developing the site already. On a side note, I’m wondering if you have experienced any interaction issues with WPML which we plan to install along Fundify later on. It would be awesome to have them play along nicely, at least in the back-end; no need to make the front-end campaign administration unnecessarily cumbersome.

Astoundify

We have users using WPML and have translation files for the theme and plugin .po/.mo files so the theme and plugin is fully localized.

Is this theme works with BuddyPress? The reason I’m asking as it’s quite a challenge to run a crowdfunding platform if we do not have a large member base already. Thanks for the great idea!

Astoundify

The theme is not yet a BuddyPress tested theme but works well with BBPress we haven’t tested or created custom pages for BuddyPress but if we get enough requests for this feature we would add it (We’ve had maybe a handful of people ask)

Hello,

Just installed “Fundify” and I’m having a problem: I tried to access the support but there was a database error on your

The pictures on the front-page are unusually distorted and look much bigger than the one on you demo. I used the dummy files as explained on your documentation… Not sure if anyone else had that problem before? Any idea?

Thanks - GM

Astoundify

Are you still getting database errors on our support forum? I just checked our support forum and don’t see any issues.

I would recommend using the http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ plugin to fix issues with distorted images, and ensure your web host supports GD Library or ImageMagick so that the images get correctly sized.

where do you ad default percentage to charge

Astoundify

When using the PayPal adaptive payments plugin you can charge a fee on all funds raised with the project/campaign, go to Campaigns > Settings > Payment Gateways.

Is it WPML ready ? If not are you thinking of doing it ?

Astoundify

We have people using it, and our themes/plugins are coded translation-ready using WordPress standards, so I don’t see why not. If you have any issues, let us know.

I’m wondering if Fundify can be used to setup a digital goods marketplace like Themeforest for instant?

Astoundify

See: http://themeforest.net/author_dashboard#comment_4224281

Can it? Yes. Should it? Probably not.

hello!

1. how do i change the picture in the hero bar? i have one there and i do not know how i got it there!

2. how do i edit my footer? all of the pages that I have created are in my footer

Astoundify

1. It will be a random featured image from a featured campaign. You could also copy `page-templates/front-page.php` into your child theme, then manually add your image in 45-48.

2. You can edit your footer widgets via “Appearance > Widgets”

Hi there, Love your theme! Is it possible to just sell digital products with this theme rather than setting up campaigns?

Cheers

Astoundify

Technically yes, but things may look very off. In order for lots of the the templating to properly work, the Crowdfunding plugin needs to be installed. And if that’s installed, lots of extra stuff will be added. You could strip all of that out if you really wanted though.

Hope you’re enjoying WordCamp Chicago! Three pre-puchase questions, if I may, as I want to install this for my company to create multiple campaigns—we will act as the web platform and the author for each campaign.

1) Does Fundify allow us to act as both web platform and campaign author? Or should we be looking at Campaignify (but we need multiple campaigns running together)?

2) I am assuming we don’t need chained or parallel payments as all payments will be directed to us but we do need preapproved payments. Can we use Paypal Adaptive Payments for preapproved payments without chained or parallel payments? Or is there another solution?

3) Do you know whether Paypal Adaptive Payments can be applied for from any country or is only available in certain territories? We’re based in Singapore but hoping to be able to collect money worldwide. Should we talk to PayPal here first?

Thanks, great looking theme.

Astoundify

1. Not 100% sure what you mean. But as an administrator, you are also able to submit campaigns, manage them, etc like a normal author, as well as manage the website. Fundify will work for this, as well as Campaingify. If you only have 2-3 campaigns, Campaignify may suite your needs better. If you have multiple campaigns, they would show up in an archive like this: http://demo.astoundify.com/campaignify/campaigns (which could be changed via a child theme)

2. Yes, you will still need to use PayPal Adaptive Payments for preapproval, or Stripe which has Preapproval support: https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extension/stripe-payment-gateway/

3. You should apply for a PayPal Adaptive Payments application first: http://x.com—If you are not approved, and you only need preapproval (not split payments) Stripe might be a better option.

Hope that helps!

Does this theme come with a lot of short codes? I’m having trouble finding any. I want to insert a google map into a campaign.

Astoundify

WordPress 3.6 which will be released shortly will short embeding google maps by just adding a google map link to the site, in the mean time you can just copy paste the iframe code into the page and the map will display.

We have a list of shortcodes in the theme documentation.

For other shortcodes such as buttons, tabs, etc, check out a plugin such as http://www.themezilla.com/plugins/zillashortcodes/

Astoundify

Yes, you can use this theme to allow for pre-order of products then take the payment at a later date.

hey there.

i used the dummy content to get the site up a bit quicker, but i cannot get rid of the cupcake photo. i have deleted all of the campaigns and have left just one, which I have edited, but there is nowhere to find or change the main photo. the photo is in the media files but does not show as attached. the photo is acting as the win slider photo on the homepage as well. when creating a new campaign, i do not see anywhere to attached a main photo.

thanks

I like your theme, just have one question, once a campain’s ending is reached successfully and the goal reached how will the campain author be paid? Does the Author need a paypal account, or can he be paid via cheque? And can the option to receive the money even when the goal is not reached, be turned turned off?

sorry if the question was asked before, but p37 pages is a lot to go through to find one specific answer

Thanks for your response

I just uploaded the fundify theme to my wordpress, and I Can’t see the option for the Hero Unit.

Astoundify

Did u create a page and apply the home page template using Page Attributes and then publishing the page? If you don’t you won’t see the hero settings in Apperance > Theme Customizer

Default-user

I create a page with Front Page model. But I can’t change the text in the header Because i don’t have ‘hero unit’ in theme customizer

Great, great theme! Currently, I don’t have a need for crowdfunding, but I’d love to see what you guys would do with a learning management site (like Woo’s Sensei but in a complete theme) and a dating site. So many of the components you’ve built for this could be repurposed for those types of sites, easily.

Astoundify

Great thanks for the ideas!
