I purchased this theme and I noticed that the social media links and search box on the homepage are not responsive. They don’t resize appropriately as the browser is resized.

In the demo on here, the social media links and search boxes seem to completely disappear when the browser is resized.

I’ve checked on FF and Safari and both are the same. Can you provide a fix for this? Thanks!

Hi designfaire

Would it be possible to post your question in our forums so that our support crew can assist?

You can login/register via this page on Obox: http://www.obox-design.com/please_login.cfm

Once you are registered you will be redirected to your profile where you will need to enter your Purchase Code.

To get your purchase code you need to login to ThemeForest and go to the “Downloads” tab, you will see a ‘Download’ button next to the theme you purchased. Click this button and a drop-down will appear with a link to your “License Certificate”. The .txt file in that download contains your “Item Purchase Code” which you can then use to login to the Obox forums.

Hello,

What is the difference between this version and the one being sold as a Premium Theme in WordPress.com?

Thanks.

obox

Hi Andhow

The version of WordPress.com only works on that site. If you purchase Gigawatt via Themeforest then you will need to have your own hosting setup. You can read more about that here:

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

I would like to tell you this little bug to fix for next releases:

ocmx/widgets/content-widget.php line 110

There is:
<?php echo date('F j, Y', strtotime($post->post_date)); ?>
Instead of:
<?php echo date_i18n(get_option('date_format'), strtotime($post->post_date)); ?>

This make me some localization problem.

Bye, Silvio (from Italy)

Hi darkfire56j

Thank you for the heads up, we will have a look at this and post an update for next Thursday.

Dave

Hi, using your theme I noticed that when video stops youtube suggests the related video. In other terms, people can look other videos from my site and I found it not very elegant _’. However, searching in the code i found that it is possible to avoid this thing changing:

function.php line 121

from this: $replace = array(’?hd=1&wmode=transparent” frameborder=”0”’, ’?hd=1’);

to this_ $replace = array(’?hd=1&wmode=transparent&rel=0” frameborder=”0”’, ’?hd=1’);

I hope this bugfix will be available, or also “checked/unchecked” in future updates, otherwise I have to change that line for each theme update.

Thank you for your patience,

Silvio

Hi Silvio

Thanks for the feedback, I will log this in our feature request app for consideration in the next update.

Hi,

Great theme but i have a question is Gigawatt compatible with wordpress 3.8 ?

Thanks.

obox

Yep it is :)

HI :)

I purchased your theme months ago and I love it. Its done wonders :)

But now the published videos are publishing kind of funky. Can you please lend a helping hand please? :)

I would greatly appreciate your advice and help.

Hello, quick question before we commit to purchase, would we be able to get additional SM icons with this theme?

Instagram, Pinterest, GooglePlus (and even ThingLink if possible)

Awaiting a prompt response. Thanks, be blessed

obox

Hi BV

These icons are now included in the theme :)

Dave

Hi nice theme but a few questions.

I understand users can upload their videos in the wordpress dashboard after signing up.

My goal is this, a user signs up and they can upload a video to one designated you tube account setup within the dashboard. They add the title, description and tags of the video and upload to the you tube account. The user cannot change the setting to the you tube upload function for this account. The user only has access perhaps as an author to create and edit their own posts but not that of anyone else. They should be able to change any other settings including other plugins, the theme and so on.

I’m struggling to find a process to do this so if your theme does I am good to go.

Thanks

James

obox

Hi James

There are plugins which cater for this functionality – one particular plugin that we recommend is called Paid Membership Plugin and includes features which allow your members to sign up and upload their own YouTube vids:

http://www.paidmembershipspro.com/

The plugin will work with Gigawatt BTW.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Dave

Does this theme support embedded videos from sites like Vzaar and Sprout?

obox

As long as you have embed code it will work :)

PROBLEM WITH HOME: Hello, I purchased this last December and it’s all done. However, when I gave the link to my friends, they didn’t see the MENU BUTTONS on their first acess to the website. I dont know why or how, but the buttons is like ‘invisible’. When they mouse-over them, they appeared! If you answer me by email I can show you the video with this problem.

Thank you in advance

Hi. Great theme. Does the video size on the Demo, is the largest size possible, or can it be further customized>

Thank you

obox

Hi Davutor

You can have video sizes up to 940px.

Dave

Hi! Congratulations for this theme.

How can I post automatically videos posted on YouTube?

obox

Hi Patricia

All you need to do is add the link of your YouTube video in the ‘oEmbed’ field in the post section.

I love this theme, but before I purchase it I would like to know if it is possible to remove the ‘shop’ part of this theme (the page in the menu as well as the part on the front page), as I won’t be using it.

Thanks!

obox

Hi Marshaja

Absolutely, the shop item is not a requirement in the theme. It will only appear if you install the WooCommerce plugin (which is not a requirement).

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Dave

Hi Obox :)

I’m trying to enter a “Support Ticket” via http://oboxthemes.com/forum/post/ but the dropdown called “What product do you need help with today?” to choose my theme is not displaying any themes and so because I can’t there are no themes for me to choose I cannot complete the support ticket for what I need help with.

Please advise :)

Thanks for this information. I’ll forward this message to my client.

Hi, I’m setting up a buddy press installation and would like to use your theme on my extensions. Since this is single site would your single site license suffice or would I need a slightly upgraded license like where I can use it on unlimited sites type of a thing? I don’t need an won’t get a big extended license. So, will your single license suffice?

Thank you, Patrick

obox

Hi Patrick

Sorry for replying so late to your question.

Gigawatt is 100% GPL which in turn means you can use it multiple times with one single purchase.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Hi, thank you yes that helps.

So, we want to buy your theme but need to ask, is the version in theme forest a “lite” version? I was on your site and there is a big price difference. Please advise?

Thank you, Patrick

obox

Hi Patrick

The difference between the pricing is that if you purchase the theme from Themeforest then you will be able to access support on Obox for 6months.

If however you purchase the theme from Obox then you will have access for 12months.

Support is upgradable at any point though. If after 6 months you require more support then you can purchase more for only $29.

Hi I have a Youtube channel where I talk about movies and TV shows and now I’m looking for a Wordpress theme to use on my website. I’ll be posting videos (once a week) and news/fun facts/lists about TV Shows and movies, maybe three times a week. I really liked this theme at first, but I do have a few questions: 1) How big can my logo be? 2) Is it possible to add ad units? I was thinking of a 728×90 right below my logo on top, and maybe another one in the middle of the website (between Portfolio and Shop, as seen on the Demo, or below the search box and connect). 3) On a page like this (http://demo.oboxsites.com/gigawatt/blog-page/) can I edit the sidebar to show bigger ads (33×250), not show Author info, etc? 4) On the demo page, right below the slider there is the search box and connect. The three videos below (Dinner, Wildebeest and another), can it show images? I was thinking of something like a “latest”, so it’d should either my latest videos or blog posts. Thanks!

Quick Question before purchasing, Will I be able to change the font colors from the original burgandy color to a lime green?

obox

Yes absolutely, all our themes come with a built in visual customizer which allows you to change the colors, fonts, backgrounds etc.

Dave

There is a problem with your template, even in the live preview version. When using chrome browser only though! When you are on the front page and you can see all 4 youtube videos, you have the possibility to navigate to a different subpage (ex.: “PAGE TEMPLATES” and “About” or “SHOP”) if you do that and then click the chrome browser “back” button, then all the 4 youtube videoes will be exchanged with one vimeo video! Is it possible to fix this bug??? (we won´t buy this theme if it does not work – and will not recommend anyone else to do so)

Hi Filmfront,

Thanks for the that… I will take a look at the demo to try replicate the bug.
