Badass! Wish I had a project to use this for, looks like it would be a fun theme to work with. GLWS!

MVPThemes

Thanks a lot dantehicks! Maybe a client will ask for a badass site soon! :)

MVP – I’ll be needing to request a refund unfortunately. I doubt you will be up to custom configuring the feature slider to show the most recent updates… I didn’t know how heavy tagging would come into play with this theme and it’s data flows to the front page.

This is a very good theme for everyone else looking to buy, but it’s just not going to be the redesign solution I thought it could be.

MVPThemes

Hi mwurquha,

I can certainly help you pull in the latest posts for the slider if you’re still interested in using the theme.

Ok let’s discuss via the tickets then. TY!

MVPThemes

Sure thing!

how do you get the data for the scores at the top. Is this hard coded / static data or is a xml feed from a site that will give me the daily scores?

MVPThemes

Hi rightnowloads,

Thanks for the interest!

The scores are controlled via custom posts, so to enter a score, simply add a “Score” post, enter the score status, the team abbreviations and the score, assign a category (sport) and you’re done!

Hey, nice theme!

Just a few questions:

-is it possible to have an image slideshow in posts? -can videos be added to posts? -does it include a twitter feed widget for sidebar? -does it include a popular posts widget for sidebar? -is there a video widget for sidebar? -how easy would it be to replace comments with Facebook comments or Disqus?

MVPThemes

Thanks ajfenwick!

1) The only slideshow function that comes with the theme is this one: http://www.mvpthemes.com/gameday/top-10-greatest-players-not-in-the-baseball-hall-of-fame/

2) You can add videos to posts either through the regular embed code, but the theme comes with Youtube and Vimeo shortcodes.

3) There is no Twitter widget at the moment, but it is on the list of things to be added.

4) There is no popular posts widget either, but that is also on the list.

5) You can you the default text widget to enter a video for the sidebar.

6) The theme has been tested with Nebula Facebook Comments and Disqus and they both work well with the theme.

Great. Thanks for the answers!

A popular posts widget and making the top navigation buttons fully clickable (as another user suggested) are the only things holding me back at the moment. Do you have a rough timeframe of when these might be complete?

Thanks!

MVPThemes

Hi ajfenwick,

I’ll look to release an update with a few added features (including the ones you requested) probably next week.

Brilliant looking theme. Can the 728×90 ad be placed above the logo?

MVPThemes

Thanks covaun!

If you choose to purchase the theme, I can guide you through placing it above the logo since it’s a quick fix.

Hi MVPThemes,

I was looking to start up a sports blog, and this looks like a perfect fit! Well done by the way! However, I don’t know anything on coding :( Any suggestions? I do wanna buy it, but I only know wordpress, no code

MVPThemes

Thanks nitsuj8197!

You won’t need any coding experience to set the site up like the demo, so you should be fine. The theme comes with extensive documentation that will guide you through the setup process.

And if you choose to purchase the theme and have any questions about the setup or run into any issues, you can submit a ticket at the Support Center.

Thanks again!

This theme is EVERYTHING I ever dreamed of! The only and ONLY concern I have is not having it be a live scoreboard for NBA, MLB, NHL, and NFL!

If you are not able to do this, would a developer be able to?

MVPThemes

Thanks hassan97 ,

Unfortunately, I don’t know of a way to really pull in feeds at the moment, but the process of entering and updating scores only takes seconds, so I tried to make it as easy as possible.

Wonderful job on this thee MVP!

has any of you been able to recreate the exact demo example? MVP help? I’d really like to attain that look. Not really able to get the big featured slider to show or the “Right Now” box on the right of it to display. Any ideas you guys? MVP, I sent you a ticket response.

MVPThemes

Hi donjuanjohn32,

Please make sure you have read through the documentation, which will guide you through how to set up the featured slider. The “Right Now” box should automatically display as long as you have articles since that just pulls in the latest posts on your site.

Thanks for submitting the ticket and if you have any other questions/issues, feel free to ask them there. Thanks!

Any suggestions on adapting the score feature to a separate theme? You have a nifty feature. An plans to possibly release it as a plugin even perhaps? I’ll by that one

MVPThemes

Hi hfrjr4375,

Unfortunately, there are no plans to adapt it as a plugin at the moment, but it is something I will at least look into. Thanks!

hi, english is the only language?

MVPThemes

Hi studio7g,

This theme will translate well into most languages as there are only a few words that need to manually be changed here and there.

Hi there. The theme is performing great, good work. Just have a few questions: 1. Would it be possible to add more widgets in the future, like a tabs widget for the front page for example (I noticed in an earlier answer some social widgets are on their way)? 2. Is it possible to have the front page slider resize and crop photos by itself? 3. Are you planning to add footer widget areas? Thanks/Erik

MVPThemes

Hi erikob2,

Thanks for the purchase!

1) I actually do plan to add a tabbed widget here soon, possibly in the next update. And yes, a Twitter social widget is on the list as well.

2) The front page slider generally does crop images, but if you are using a featured image that is smaller than the recommended 615×400 dimensions, you may have some blank space since the featured slider area is fixed. As the documentation suggests, I would recommend using a 615×400 image for any posts you plan on placing in the featured slider.

3) This is on the list of possible additions, but due to the layout of the homepage, I originally thought it would be redundant to place a similar widget area just below another widget area, but it could serve some use on the inside pages.

Thanks!

Ok, that sounds fine. Thanx for quick reply.

hey erikob2,

have you been able to get the featured slider to work on the Gameday theme?

MVPThemes

Hi donjuanjohn32,

Please make sure you have read through the documentation, which will guide you through how to set up the featured slider. Thanks!

Anyone have a problem with the large logo function? It still shows the default logo after correctly uploading my custom. Solution?

MVPThemes

Hi donjuanjohn32,

My apologies! It looks like there was an issue with the large logo, but I have a solution for you at the Support Center. Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks, it did the trick! Nice job

MVPThemes

No problem, sorry about the confusion!

erikob2 Purchased

Hi donjuanjohn32,

Yes, it works fine for me.

@ erikob2,

I’ve been struggling to get it to work for me. How did you do it?

MVPThemes

Hi donjuanjohn32,

It looks like your issue was that you were trying to use a static page as your homepage instead of using the default “Your latest posts” setting in the Settings > Reading section of the Wordpress backend.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask them at the Support Center. Thanks!

Default-user

Got it…thanks again.

Any way I can get a copy of the live preview? Would be great to have all the demo content before I get started.

Default-user
MLGSmall Purchased

When will it be available? Also, how can I display logo both in the navigation and under the scoreboard?

MVPThemes

Hi MLGSmall,

There is no timetable for when it will be available at the moment, but it is on the list for a future update.

If you’d like to display BOTH logos, I can guide you through this if you submit a ticket at the Support Center. Thanks!

Thanks CoralixThemes!

Have this theme, right sidebar on post ?

MVPThemes

Hi fcbfans,

Yes, there is a right sidebar on all posts. Here is an example: http://www.mvpthemes.com/gameday/junior-stars-could-be-set-to-make-impact-in-nhl/

hassan97 Purchased

The only reason I have purchased this theme is to support you into finding out how to place a live scoreboard for the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB anyway you can!

MVPThemes

Hi hassan97,

Thanks for the purchase!

I will definitely look into getting a live feed but I can’t make any promises. It may be difficult especially given the licensing issues of pulling in live scores which most websites pay large sums of money for ( I actually used to work for one such company). But I will give it a look. Thanks again!

Hi hassan97,
