i’m having issue with the widgets retaining the settings. for example, the homepage OCMX slider will not limit to the number of posts i set in the widget settings, nor will it retain the interval time.

i’m having the same issue w/ the OCMX Four Column widget. it will not retain any settings I set there either.

Ideas?

Hi DentonBros

We’d love to help, would it be possible to post your question in our forums so that our support crew can attend to the problem?

To get your purchase code you need to login to ThemeForest and go to the “Downloads” tab, you will see a link below the theme title called “License Certificate” http://cl.ly/7thr.

The .txt file in that download contains your “Item Purchase Code” which you can then use to login to the Obox forums.

On the homepage slider, is there an option to have the photos or videos autoscroll?

Yep there is. There is a setting which lets you set the duration between each slide as well :)

Congrats on a great looking theme, I’m itching to buy it.

Got a bunch of pre-sales questions though.

First – On the front page is it possible to have a still image of the video clip instead of the mini video clip ? To be clearer I’d want the user to have to click through to the full post before being able to play the video at normal size rather than having the option to play a mini version of it on the front page.

Second – does the slider just use the last/latest three posts no matter what they are, or can I specify which posts it should source from ?

Third – can I also get rid of the slider altogether ?

Fourth – is it possible to have more than two rows of clips display on the front page ?

Last – Are there any advertising widgets possible with this ?, as there’s none on the demo. Something like a banner on top of front page, and box ads on post sidebars.

Thanks.

Hi Amacfx

Glad you like the theme :) To answer your questions:

1) Yep, all you need to do is upload a feature image when you add the video and that image will display on the home screen.

2) You can set it to display a certain category but it will only display the latest posts from that particular category.

3) Yep, the slider is a widget, so you can remove it if you want to.

4) Yep, you can have multiple rows.

5) There is a 125×125 advert widget which you can place in the right column of the sub pages.

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

Dave

Thanks for getting back to me Dave.

And just to be clear on question one, will the feature image I upload for each video also display in the full post ?. (I don’t want it to, I just want it on the homepage).

They will only display on the home page. When a user clicks the image it will go to the post which will display the video :)

Hello!

Like amacfx, I too only want an image on the homepage and the video on the post page. So I tried the advice of adding the video and a featured image, yet it still only shows the video. Is there a setting I need to change somewhere? Please help! Great theme!

Thanks, Jesse

Hi Jesse,

We’ve just released a hotfix for this, which allows you to specify whether you want to display your thumbnail or video in the four column widget.

Hi! Is it possible to change the width of the slider and allow for a sidebar to appear to the right? We’d like to include some social media widgets in that area and don’t need the video to appear full width.

All other functionality of your template looks ideal.

Thanks.

Hi IaoWD

It is possible to set the home page to the blog layout and then include the slider above it.

Hello there, This is a very nice theme :) But befor I get it I have some questions.

1. Can I get rid of the grunge texture? 2. Can I change the background color?

Thank you!

Hi Dani,

Yes you can do both using the standard WordPress custom background feature which are supported by this theme.

hi there. i mailed you guys regarding few questions before purchasing it out but haven’t got any response yet. seems like i have to ask them again here. my question was how many videos can i add on the home page which come’s from the post as i see right now in your demo theme. can i add more than 16 or can be there a pagination like 1,2 and so on. secondly is it possible to reduce the size of the home page ugly unprofessional giant slider. can it’s size be lower down as it’s freaking huge rite now. third will the social icons get opened in a new separate window or will it get open in the same browser window distracting the viewers to leave their current page. fourth the sidebar which you have right now is very very ugly with that brown color twitter combination. can that be changed .is it flexible. the theme has some advantages on seeing it as it has video support but lots of disadvantages too as i see it doesn’t fits the general basic idea. answer me if interested. so that i get clear idea before purchasing it out. thnx.

Hi Creative Guy

Sorry about the lack of response via our contact message. I am not sure how it slipped through our filters as I spend most of my day answering questions sent from that form.

About Gigawatt:

1. You can add as many videos as you like to the home page, however it won’t paginate. The pagination only occurs if you use the blog layout for the home page.

2. You can change the slider but it would involve custom coding. There is no predetermined size setting that you could toggle.

3. You can set them to open in a new window yes.

4. If you don’t like the colors you can use your own by adding them to the custom.css file.

It seems that Gigawatt may not be your best option as I can see that it doesn’t seem to fit your tastes. I would rather suggest you have a look at our Motion Picture video theme. It has a smaller slider and you may prefer the sidebar design: http://themeforest.net/item/motion-picture-wordpress-video-blogging-theme/222214

Hi! Great theme, however I’m having an issue when I’m embedding videos from youtube that the slider-dots disappearing. Is there a fix/solution for this or something I have to add?

Thanks.

Hi Helge,

You will need to add wmode=transparent to the embed code, for example:

or if you use the old tag, the wmode attribute will be added automatically.

That should do the trick.

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your prompt response. How do I access the forums? I am not finding a way to access under ‘themeforest’ on the obox website.

When I download the file from the themeforest, do I upload that entire zipped file or just parts of it?

Thanks

Also, I am having issue with the logo being aligned too far to the right – way past the layout’s edge. Please tell me exactly where in the code to change this so the logo sits right on top of the layout. Thanks for your help.

Hi Obox,

Thanks for this great theme! I love it!

I’m having a problem with the homepage video. The vimeo play/pause button is not functioning very well. It takes multiple click to make it play, and once it does play, it’s hard to get it to pause.

I tried on your demo and the similar problem occurs. Any idea how this can be fixed?
