It seems ridiculous that the slider & home page 4 columns widget only display content from the blog, and not the portfolio post type. By that logic, you would have to post all of your portfolio videos as blog posts so that they display on the homepage, and again as portfolio posts so that they display on the portfolio page. The only alternative is to recode elements of the theme.
Have added video links to portfolio items and cannot get video thumbnails to display on the homepage, even after switching to display posts from the portfolio post type.
Pretty disappointed with this theme, unfortunately.
Gigawatt should be allowing you to choose between Posts or Portfolio items for both the slider and the 4-col widget.
I am going to double check with my Devs that you have the latest version.
Sorry about the confusion.
If you update your theme to the latest version you will find the option to choose between posts and/or portfolio items for the slider, 2 column and 4 column widgets.
I’m still waiting to hear back on my questions I posted 16 days ago. I’m very disappointed to not have received a response, particularly as in the last week I have sent the same questions via the contact form on the Obox website and still no response.
If I don’t receive a response by the start of next week I’ll choose another theme instead.
Can the main feature slider area hold a video file?
Most definitely, you can include either images or videos in the main slider.
After updating to version 1.5.2, all of my pages are displaying:
“ NO POSTS FOUND
There are no posts which match your search criterea.”
This message repeats in an endless scroll.
Please help; thanks.
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 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.
I’m getting this fatal error….
Fatal error: Class ‘ocmx_recent_posts_widget’ not found in /home/content/79/4840679/html/filmoresouth/wp-content/themes/gigawatt/index.php on line 24
I am sorry for the issue you’re experiencing.
It seems there is a problem with the zip file. I am reuploading it to ThemeForest, hopefully the review team will pass it quickly.
Trying to install on wordpress and getting the following:
( ! ) Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in C:\wamp\www\adam2\wp-content\themes\gigawatt\ocmx\interface\post-type-meta.php on line 184
I had this theme set up on my own server and now when replacing the wp-content folder on the new install I’m doing for a client, for some reason the new site will not let me choose “Full Width” as the template style for given pages. It all imported fine and seemed to remain full width, but if I go in and edit any of the pages and save changes, it forces the page to be default template and the drop-down only gives me the option of “Default” and “Archives.” Any idea on why this would happen and how to get “Full Width” pages back without having to redo everything?
There is a known bug with WordPress 3.4 which is causing errors with page templates disappearing. (more info here)
We have however been doing a work around for the time being which will be downloadable tomorrow, via the Theme Update area in the WordPress Dashboard.
I am really sorry for the confusion and frustration. I can promise that we are working as fast as possible to get all the themes updated with this fix.
Just tried downloading the theme again from Theme Forest and installing the most updated version and it isn’t letting me chose the full width template. What can I do to get that functionality back? Or where can I check to see why it isn’t giving me that option?
WP 3 .4 has a bug registering page templates which they are working on. There is a work around for the time being though.
You will need to login to our forums so that our support crew can give you the details.
Okay, I’m back to working on this now. If I upgrade to Wordpress 3.5 should the theme’s template issues be resolved?
Gigawatt is WP3.5 ready
Theme is unresponsive when trying to download version 1.5.1 updates. Having issues as well with the set up. Is there a way I can obtain the updated version to install on my WP?
We’d love to help, would it be possible to post your question in our forums so that our support crew can attend to your install issue?
Question has been posted within the support forum. Thanks for the initial response
I can’t choose the “widgetized page” option when I select a template for my pages. Why has this happened? Did I change something? And what is a “press gallery?”
Great theme! Is there an option for Pagination on the homepage?
Currently there is no option yet available to add pagination to the home page, however you can list up to 12 videos – per category.
Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.
Before committing to purchase this theme, I have a question:
When embedding/posting videos, does this theme automatically grab a screen capture on its own for the display image, or do I have to manually upload a separate “featured image” for every video I post?
Are there differences in this process for videos I embed from Blip or YouTube as opposed to self-hosted videos?
Thanks for your answers to this.
Thanks for your questions.
1) You will have to upload a custom image for each one, we’ve tried methods to automatically pull thumbnails but it’s proved inconsistent and unreliable. We feel that a custom upload is the best way forward.
2) With Blip, YouTube, Vimeo etc. it’s really easy to implement. You can either add embed code or you can simply cut and paste the URL into a form we’ve provided. Self hosted videos are a bit more complicated (which is why we always recommend 3rd party), you have to create 4 different media types of your video and upload each of them via the WP Media uploader. Then you can add the file name to your post so that your vid will display.
It’s a time consuming method but we made it available for anyone who wants to own their own content.
just installed this theme but having issues with the video display.
I have set the homepage using the widget layout and have a series of blog posts showing with 4 column layout.
Most seems to be working ok but the videos are not positioned correctly within the thumb frame, same thing happening with the large slider. When i scale the window, the videos scale down but rather than be centrally aligned (ie same size gap top and bottom of video when scaling down) the videos go downwards hugging the bottom of the container.
Any idea where i have gone wrong? have been following the documentation, but no one else has posted about this so safe to assume its a user error. Any pointers would be great.
Hello could you please let me know
1) where can i get the purchase code to register on OBOX suport forums?
2) Can I download the default contents so that my website looks exactly like the demo-website. It will be easier for me to setup this way.
Once you gain access to our forums you will be able to request the demo content from our support crew.
We’d love to help, would it be possible to post your question in our forums so that our support crew can assist?
I can’t register on obox with the given purchase code, can you please just tell the solution here
Please email me your purchase code so that I can test it.
okay, I’ll email the purchase code, but If possible, can you just give me a new download link for the theme

I wanted to let you know that we’ve uploaded some major updates to the Gigawatt theme today!
This is our second big update to Gigawatt after the first which saw us updating it to be mobile friendly amongst other things.
We’ve been working hard at Obox to make our WordPress themes easier to install and setup and with that we’ve given Gigawatt an update to so that once you’ve bought it you can get it up and running as fast as possible as quickly as possible.
As well as that, we’ve updated Gigawatt so that you can make full use of the new WordPress customisation options. This means you can edit the look and feel of the theme in its own visual preview window. This makes image and color selection 100 times quicker and easier to do. Then, once you’re happy simply click save and you’re good to go!
We hope you like the changes
