Was just wondering if there was a way to have Instagram as one of the social media buttons at the top (in the Don’t Miss ticker system).

We currently have Facebook/Twitter and RSS would love to have Instagram there as well if possible.

Hey sportainment,

This is on the list of possible additions for a future update, but unfortunately there is no timetable for when this will be implemented.

Default-user

that’s fine just thought I’d bring it up – I am enjoying your theme and thought it was my duty to come up with ideas to improve it.

We are looking for a scoreboard that would use an existing XML feed that is available to us. Would this be possible with the scoreboard available here? Can you use only the scoreboard and no other component?

MVPThemes

Hey cssmktg,

I’m not exactly sure what you are asking, but the scoreboard feature that comes with the theme would need to be manually updated unless you edit it on your own to accept a feed.

And if you are asking if you can ONLY purchase the scoreboard, no you will have to purchase the theme since it is not available as a separate plugin.

Default-user

We don’t mind purchasing the entire package. Just wanted to see if the scoreboard could be used independently.

MVPThemes

Hey cssmktg,

The scoreboard feature was built into the theme and wasn’t intended to be used independently, but if you purchase a license, you are welcome to try and use the feature on another site if you want. Unfortunately, I would not be able to support the transfer, so this is something you would have to do on your own.

The twitter widget on the main menu keeps saying loading, but the twitter icon up top does go to our twitter page what is going on?

MVPThemes

Hey texanlive,

Unfortunately the new Twitter API kicked in which changes the way Twitter interacts with plugins. Due to this change, the Twitter widget will be removed in the next update and will no longer be supported. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Same problem with Twitter widget. They recently changed their API or something and it stopped working on this theme. Please help with an update.

We downloaded a plugin and got our Tweets back. It was a easy fix after going through twitter for the API Keys. Thanks!

Hi,

I ask you to know if it’s possible to put 3 teams in the “Advanced, Custom-Built Scoreboard”??

Like: 1st Team1 2on Team2 3th Team3

thanks!

MVPThemes

Hey kyesitu,

Unfortunately this is not a feature of the theme and while I do offer to perform small custom changes, this would require more than just a short fix, so it is something you would have to modify on your own or get a third party to help you with since I am unable to provide this level of customization to all of my customers.

How do I remove the search field from the top right corner of the menu so i can add more menu options?

Hi MVP,

A quick pre-purchase question, if you don’t mind.

In relation to the scoreboard, on the home page. Would I be limited to only 3 Characters, plus 1 Character for the score? Or is it possible to change it myself via code?

“I.E: Id like to put longer names/track/teams/location of event, in place of that”

Thankyou for your time,

Ady

MVPThemes

Hey MotoT,

Thanks for the interest!

The width of the teams section is currently 50px, so you won’t only be limited to 3 characters. The score section is 25px, so you won’t be limited to 1 character there either. If you want to shrink the teams section and extend the score section, you can certainly do this via the style.css file or adding the CSS to the Custom CSS section in the Theme Options.

I have a serious problems with encoding and utf-8 characters like ž, š… How can I fix this?

THX for reply!

Hi,

Any idea why the Twitter plug in isn’t working half way down this page? http://www.dunsfc.co.uk

Thanks

Hello,

I am having trouble with the Facebook user name. What exactly should I be putting in there? Everything I try results in a broken page link.

MVPThemes

Hey bigeastnow,

If you are referring to the Facebook button at the top of the site, you are not supposed to use the full URL, just the username. If you are referring to the Facebook widget and the URL is not working, please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll take a look.

Default-user

I am referring to the button, what exactly would be my username? the email address that I use to login into facebook?

MVPThemes

Hey bigeastnow,

Sorry for the confusion, but your username would be the “BigEastNow”.

How do I get my posts to load onto the slideshow?

MVPThemes

Hey mdeems07,

It is not showing that you have purchased the theme. Please login under the username that you purchased the theme with and post a comment here and I’ll be happy to help.

How do I get my posts to load onto the slideshow and “don’t miss” section?

MVPThemes

Hey mdeems07,

Please make sure you have read through the documentation, which will explain how to set up this section via the Theme Options. If you have any questions after you have read through the documentation, feel free to submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll be happy to help.

Hi, an idea for future releases – is it possible to make the header and background ad links open a new tab or window (as an option), versus taking the visitor away from the site? Thanks.

MVPThemes

Hey ericksontx,

The leaderboard ad code is dictated by whatever code you place in there, so you can add it to your code to open in a new window. But for the wallpaper ad, if you want that to open in a new window, please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I can show you how.

If you have all 8 fields for the scoreboard categories active it messes up on the mobile view. Any fix for that?

Hey ckysports,

Please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll take a look at this for you.

Flocotiga Purchased

Anyone know a twitter widget that works with this theme?

What ckysports reported i also noticed !

As for the future updated, can you add Latest/Popular/Comments for the siderbar like on retrosportsive ? I think it would much better with it,and perhaps with carausel also…

If yes, can you tell me some date when this could happen ?

MVPThemes

Hey oneruffryder,

Please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll look into this for you.

Unfortunately, there are no plans to add a tabber widget in a future update.

Hi , I really like this theme, and i wish to buy it…but I test it trough some web site testers like GTmetrix which shows yslow is not so good, only 76 and there is really a lot of http request inside theme. Before i buy it i need to know do you have in plan to work more on this theme and to optimize it more in this part?

Default-user

i appreciate your effort for this 76 to 78, but this is still really low ,and i already had problems with google due not so good bad optimized theme,especially when there is a lot of traffic, then this http request are using a lot of cpu and bandwith,and the site is really slow in such times, thats why i asked.I think i will stick with my theme for now or buy some themes here which have 90 slow, but still your theme looks exactly as i wanted ..to bad..i will check back in some time hoping you will get this at least at 85…because as you know this is now a huge factor in google ranking -traffic ..thanks

MVPThemes

Hey Maxst,

I will always look for ways to improve the load of the site, but a rating of 78 is actually not low. The average is 77, so if anything the theme is a tick above average. And as far as overall load time, the theme tests well above average.

Default-user

Thats good news, and yes i know that 77 is average, but i had some issues as i said with traffic from google, and when i chnage my theme to one with the bigger yslow, and lower number of http traffic came back.This isnt an issue with the low traffic site..but this theme has really a lot of Javascript scripts,external stylesheets and external background ..i think if you combine more scripts and use css sprites and image mapping these can go really Up. Still i will check in some time to see if there are any improvement on this field..so i can use it for my site, and to recommend to my clients.Kind regards

How do you make the theme automate the sports news feed? Does it already have the automated news feed built in or do I have to input some feed codes myself?

MVPThemes

Hey branden425,

I’m not exactly sure what is going on, but I just said above that the theme does not come with an automated sports feed feature and then you purchased the theme anyway and now want a refund because it doesn’t have an automated sports feed.

If you would like a refund, you will have to contact Envato Support here: http://support.envato.com

Though, they will likely not process your request since the theme is not broken and it does not say anywhere that there is an automated feed feature.

Default-user

I thought it included it because your live preview had it

MVPThemes

Hey branden425,

I’m not sure what you consider a “sports news feed”, but whatever is included in the demo is user-generated content, not something pulled from a feed. Also, why would you think the theme includes something when I clearly said it did not in my first comment in this thread?

I also like this theme a lot… Same question as with Resportsive… Will the theme support Woo Commerce or WP eCommerce?

Thank You.

MVPThemes

Hey ScottSchwab,

Unfortunately, as with Resportsive, there are no plans to support either with the theme.
