SUPERB DESIGN and from what I’ve read, you also have AWESOME Customer Service. Can it be true? Nice. I’ll look forward to purchasing soon. By the way, given that I’m a filmmaker, can I post VIDEOS (vimeo/youtube/selfhost) on the Homepage SPECIFICALLY in the SLIDER ? Can I also add AUDIO clips (for my audiobooks). Lastly, don’t suppose you have a nifty little STORE backend, do you? Thanks and cheers!

DesignerThemes

Hi voicepro,

Yes indeed it can be… our slogan is – “Incredible designs. Effortless customization. Outstanding support.” – so there’s that. ;)

You can post videos very easily from hosted site with just the video url and our system will take care of the rest. Self-hosted videos and audio can be displayed with plugins so we didn’t build it into this theme.

Sorry, no store functionality included but again you can easily integrate one of the awesome ecommerce/store plugin out there.

I’ll echo an earlier comment that these themes are supposedly vetted, but they are so often frustratingly buggy. (I’ve tried nine to date).

Gala configures like Devonshire Cream.

DesignerThemes

Awe, thanks. We were going for smooth as silk but Devonshire Cream is pretty smooth too. ;)

Great looking design. I’ve customized it quite a bit but I have a problem.

The footer isn’t showing up. Don’t know if it was anything I did because my customizations have been css based mostly.

Any ideas?

In regards to my previous post. Now the footer is showing. Looks like a Wordpress issue was causing the problem. Don’t have any cache plugins but the site was behaving as if I did.

The best theme I’ve ever worked with, just love it! So well organized and no need to mention the outstanding design.

One little bug found on my iPad 1, the contact form isn’t showing correctly. Those fields are disappeared for some reason, maybe bg color?

Great work !!

DesignerThemes

Thanks for the kind words decode!

You’re right about the contact form, you can fix this by adding the following to your custom-styles.css file:

.dt-contactform input[type="text"],
.dt-contactform textarea { border 1px solid #eaeaea; }

Cheers!

thanks for rapid reply,

but it’s not working … nothing changed after I add those codes to my custom-style.css file. (I didn’t make any other changes to css)

any idea?

DesignerThemes

Sorry, there is a typo in the code:

.dt-contactform input[type="text"],
.dt-contactform textarea { border: 1px solid #eaeaea; }

That should work. If you have any other support related questions please post them in our support forum so other can benefit from them as well. http://support.designerthemes.com/

Did you know that the word “sidebar” appears randomly in the open space at the bottom left of your demo footer—and it appears in my site too?

DesignerThemes

Hi there,

Yes we are aware – it is a small bug that will be fixed. In the mean time you can fix it yourself by following this post: http://support.designerthemes.com/forum/topic/149/sidebar-and-best-way-to-update

Hi,

I love your theme but the font… is not going with what my csutomer want. Does it possible to change the font ?

Sincerely,

DesignerThemes

Sure,

This can be accomplished with some small CSS tweaks which we can help you in the forum.

Can we change the skins ? In black for exemple.

Thanks for answers dude.

DesignerThemes

There are 3 skins included with this theme; light/dark/minimal

You can preview them on any page of the demo by clicking one of the links under the “Skins” menu in the top navigation bar.

Hi there, love the theme guys! Really slick. ;)

Quick question, does Gala support child themes?

DesignerThemes

Yes, all of our themes support child themes and can be used as parent themes.

Hi, it looks fantastic!

Is it possible to have the home page slider changing the images automatically?

Thanks & Best aventurax

DesignerThemes

Sure. You can enable autoplay for the homepage slider and set the speed.

See here.. http://cl.ly/EP89

aventurax

Thanks for the fast reply.

Does the slider allow video, flash data? links are possible? The roundabout slider can offer info text and linking?

DesignerThemes

Yes, the slider can show video and flash data, any HTML really. However the roundabout was only built for images I’m afraid. You can still show just text or video for your portfolio posts if you wish though.

Thanks.

Hi!, i im trying to add slides but the arrows doesnt seems to appear, the image width is 941 wide, and its set as thumbnail (featured image), the site is Carrier-kbh.dk

DesignerThemes

Hi,

For the arrows to appear, you need more than one slide. If you’re still having trouble, you should take a look here: http://support.designerthemes.com/forum/topic/177/problem-getting-the-arrows-in-main-slider

Thanks!

Default-user

Yeah, i have i 2 slides, still not appearing, and i tryed to add

" .home-slider .slider-nav { display: block !important; } "

In the Custom CSS area and its still not showing :)

DesignerThemes

Could you post this issue in the support forum with a link to your URL ? Steve will give you a hand over there. http://support.designerthemes.com/

Hi – love this theme, and your code is nice and tidy…

One problem I’m having is the slider image is fading upwards over the body section and not fading out before the next slide appears – also it makes the page jump slightly when viewing further down the page – am I missing a file or need to change any code?

Thanks in advance

I have a question concerning this theme:

Does this theme contain subcategories for portfolio pieces? Such as for instance, if I could split my illustration work into two different sections (Under the larger Illustration category), but they could all be combined into the BIG Illustration section?

Thank you for your hard work.

DesignerThemes

Yes, the theme supports multiple portfolio pages. So you could have a parent group called “Illustration” and sub-groups called “Print” and “Design”. You can then navigate to “Illustration” where “Print” and “Design” will act as the filters.

Cheers!

Your web site is asking me for a purchase code when registering, I do not have it (but you can see here that the theme was purchased).

All I am trying to do is get a question answered, why the bad user experience of having to go to your web site, register, post a question and THEN wait for you to answer.

Why not answer a question and link to it….

DesignerThemes

Hi milanvrekic,

Our support system is integrated with Envato’s API which allows us to verify purchases before providing support. This has been a pretty common practice with ThemeForest authors for a while.

There are a number of reasons as to why we don’t like to provide support in the comments; but mainly because they aren’t searchable which means we would end up answering the same questions over and over. We try to answer all customer support questions in our support forum so that others can benefit from the answers as well.

You can find your purchase code here… http://drp.so/dtcode

Or if you are having trouble you can send us an email from our profile page (because we need your TF username and email) and we’ll manually create an account for you.

Thanks, Joe

Hello there! Is it possible to change the order of the items in the slider?

Thanks!

DesignerThemes

Hi,

The slide posts are controled by the date they were created. So simply change the post date of your posts. Or you could use a post order plugin.

If you have any other support related questions please post them in our support forum so others can benefit from them as well. http://support.designerthemes.com/

Hi, not sure if you can help with this but worth me asking. I have brand new fresh install of Wordpress 3.3.1 and have installed Gala theme fine (looks great) however that is as far as I have got. I have been trying to import the galatheme.wordpress.2012-02-12.xml demo content and have an issue with the importer.

I’ve installed latest WordPress Importer (0.5.3) plugin. When I get through to the import page, the Wordpress side nav is visible but nothing else is that allows me to select the files and upload. So basically a blank page. No other plugins are used. I have tried deactivating your theme and just use the TwentyEleven theme. This time in Import the upload buttons etc appear. However when I click through and upload it appears to work but a ‘failed to import certain group’ (Illustration, Identity etc) appears at the end. Back in admin nothing appears to have been imported, no blogs, pages.

Any idea why I get a blank page when trying to use the importer when Gala theme is activated and why content does not appear even if theme is not?

Thanks in advance.

DesignerThemes

Hmm, I can’t tell of the top of my head what could cause this.

Could you post this issue in the support forum with a link to your URL ? We’ll give you a hand over there. http://support.designerthemes.com/
