Hello Gonzo,

I like your blog template. Is there a tutorial on Gonzo? Any reason for not having an Extended License charge?

Dick

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, I’ve included documentation – it details how to setup all the features of the theme. Also there’s a dummy content file if you want to jump start the process.

As for the extended license – I’m happy enough to sell through that license but I prefer to have a quick discussion beforehand with the prospective buyer. So if you are interested in the extended license, you can drop me a quick message from my profile page no problem at all.

Thank you for the last update, and making my Events Calendar Pro work just fine with the theme :D

You’re very welcome! :)

Hello Ollie,

I appreciate your reply. To be frank, I am new to all this. I am trying to figure out what an Extend License is and what it entails. I signed up with the Ryan Deiss Authority ROI tutorial on how to create an authority site using the magazine format. Your site was mentioned. To be frank your price is within my budget. I am doing this on a shoestring. Re your email. How do I upload your documentation detailing setup.

Best regards Dick

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, although I appreciate that Mr. Deiss has recommended my theme, I’m not familiar with his course so I can’t comment on it.

As for the documentation, that’s included with the purchase.

I currently have items sold through BigCommerce site. Can your template be incorporated within the BigCommerce template? The BigCommerce pages would show the items being sold and the Gonzo pages would show content in a news magazine format..

Default-user

Hello Ollie, Got your message: ” Hi there, I’m afraid there’s no ecommerce compatibility in the theme. You could use it as part of your site as a blog page but keep in mind that it will look completely different than the site you have at the minute. ” Could I make it multiple blog pages with the top and left navigation bars as part of the BigCommerce template? In other words your blog template would be within the BigCommerce template.

Thanks Dick

Ollie Looking at your Gonzo site page: http://themeforest.net/item/gonzo-clean-responsive-wp-magazine/2415788?WT.ac=category_item&WT.seg_1=category_item&WT.z_author=OllieMcCarthy Can I assume that the current GONZO header can be replaced with our own header? Dick

OllieMcCarthy

Regarding your Big Commerce site – IMHO it wouldn’t be a good idea to mix Gonzo with the BC template you are using – they are too dissimilar and it would create a jarring user experience.

However, you could use Gonzo on a different site as a portal or similar to drive traffic to your current BC site.

Default-user

May be a “jarring user experience” is what I need to stir things up. All Big Commerce does is list a bunch of products with descriptions and has a system of processing payment methods. That’s it. It also allows social media links and SEO blah blah which is supposed to increase visitor count ( a joke). Adding relevant content may be the key to increase visitor count. There is no mechanism within BC to do that. Ryan Deiss has proven that an asymmetrically design format is more effective than a so-called clean, smooth symmetrical format that is supposed to be “pleasing” to the eye.

Default-user

I am pretty much (90%) committed on moving forward with Gonzo and incorporating it into my ecommerce site.

Once purchased, can I assume instructionals and support will be available to set it up? Dick

OllieMcCarthy

Ultimately it’s up to you but I still wouldn’t recommend mixing and matching such dissimilar designs in one website.

Ollie,

I just got word from Big Commerce Support that this is do-able. But their explanation went way over my head. I guess when I buy it , all will be revealed to me? Pls advise. Thankd Dick

Hi there, I can help you with any theme related issues. Any issues regarding Big Commerce will have to be dealt with by their support staff.

Ollie,

One option that was suggested to me of integrating Gonzo magazine format into my BigCommerce “frame” is to run a subdomain and fluidly matching themes, or using an RSS style BC webpage to pull remote blog post feed. But not currently having a programmer’s mindset, I don’t know the Click Sequence to get this done.

Dick

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, I can’t help you with any Big Commerce issues as it’s a completely separate platform from Wordpress. You’ll have to contact the support staff of Big Commerce regarding their platform.

Default-user

Hello Ollie, I appreciate your feed back. Haven’t spent a penny yet. I am getting there. Question. According to BigCommerce it is possible to incorporate BigCommerce store platform into WordPress. What is your take on having it placed into Gonzo? If do-able. how hard is it to do?

Default-user

Default-user

Hello Ollie, I hate this beat this to death. But I received word from a Big Commerce Support Tech that it is possible and workable to place BigCommerce template into a WordPress blog. I was wondering what your take might be. Can I merge BigCommerce into Gonzo?

Thanks again Dick

Default-user
I just received an email from a BC tech who merged BigCommerce with a WordPress Blog. Example: https://www.thewildsalmonco.com/ – store (bigcommerce) http://blog.thewildsalmonco.com/ – blog (wordpress)

It is nicely done where the Header and Footer of both the BC and Blog are the same so we have a seamless convergence.

OllieMcCarthy

That’s a great solution if both the Wordpress and Big Commerce templates are identical. However there is no matching template in the Big Commerce library that matches Gonzo so it probably isn’t an ideal solution to mix and match the two systems.

A template does not have complete support for Wordpress 3.8. You can make a refund? Or fix it?

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, I’ve fully tested out the theme in Wordpress 3.8 and it is 100% compatible. It could be a plugin you’re running that’s causing problems. Try deactivating them all to see if the problem persists.

Hello autor. I check your theme, its looks very cool! I do not understand about number of views. It is visible in a widget, but invisible in a post. Is it posible make visible count in post and beside each news in short description? Tanks for answer

OllieMcCarthy

Thanks :) the number of views is only displayed in the widget by default. However, you could get the number of views out of the database and display it from the loop on the left if you wanted but this would be customisation.

Default-user

Thanks for answer. I very interesting of your theme, nice view, short code but i have to decide how to put in theme important things for me.It is count of view and button like.Probably I will buy you theme, but before maybe will ask you some questions. Thanks again

OllieMcCarthy

You’re welcome. Btw I can give you tips and pointers for the customisation if you decide to purchase.

Default-user

Yes, I agree with you, I try to test now and understand what is possible to chenge for me. You theme have short code(it is what I need) it is cool, but for exemple I cant understand why you demo (http://themeforest.net/item/gonzo-clean-responsive-wp-magazine/full_screen_preview/2415788)

(http://pixs.ru/showimage/sshot2jpg_4035868_11601130.jpg) have code row to row and in whole page have around 500 rows without padding and other site (https://www.baebeca.de/blog/)

(http://pixs.ru/showimage/sshot3jpg_1083120_11601144.jpg) have same construction but code is different and have many empty rows? If I will buy you theme can I have same code as you compressed row to row? Thanks for answer

OllieMcCarthy

That’s fine – you just install a simple caching plugin to compress the wordpress generated html.

Default-user

Thanks for answer, I think I will by you theme. Can I ask you what plugin you use for compress, if it possible? Thanks a lot for answer

OllieMcCarthy

No problem – it’s called W3 Total Cache.

Default-user

Thanks for answer, I tested this plugin before but never get same result. Thanks again :)

OllieMcCarthy

You can do it by enabling the minify markup settings.

Default-user

Thanks a lot for answer! So now I can see a few important things – good theme, good support, big the number of sales! I will buy this theme after I find plugins or ways how to put in SEO, likes and view count. I will very glad buy this theme because this theme made in Ireland – my loving country where I been live seven years! Thanks OllieMcCarthy!

OllieMcCarthy

Ah glad you like living here in Ireland :) Thanks!

Hi,

Just bought the theme – looks really good. But I have a question about the Social plugin you use on the live preview. Specifically, what is the name of the plugin that shows the 3 icons (RSS, Twitter, Facebook) HORIZONTALLY in the top of the sidebar. Is that Social Box ?

Also, is this plugin as included in the theme package currently up-to-date with the most recent version ? I searched the comments and it doesn’t seem like it’s been updated in a while.

Thanks!

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, yes that’s the Socialbox plugin. I ended up forking the plugin a little while back because the author wasn’t too active developing it at the time (a lot of people wanted Google+ as an option so I just added it myself).

However he’s released an update last week so I’ll be bundling that in an update this week.

Hello,

I have some questions about your Gonzo theme. In short, I’m wondering how well it will work with magazines that don’t feature a lot of visual content. In particular:

- How do your widgets work with content that is text only and does not have a featured picture or video?

- Will such posts work with the slideshow, featured category widgets, and so on?

- How will these widgets handle posts when some have featured images and some do not?

We like the theme a lot, but most of our posts do not have featured pictures. We’d still like to be able to display them nicely on the homepage with widgets for recent posts in certain categories, etc. Would your theme work well for us, and are there any examples of sites using your theme that fit that description?

Many thanks!

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, if I’m honest – this theme may not be suitable for you. The reason is that I designed it to be used with featured images. If you have no images at all then it might look a little bland.

Default-user

Well bland is okay with us as long as it is functional. Will the widgets on the home page work with posts that don’t have featured images? Or are images absolutely required? (I’m guessing they’re required for the slider, but hoping they’re not for the other widgets, like the ones highlighting recent posts in particular categories,) If they don’t require images, how do they handle a mix of posts with and without images? I don’t suppose you offer any kind of trial so we can see if it would work for us?

OllieMcCarthy

The way the theme works is that if a post does not have an image then it inserts a placeholder image. This is to keep the layout consistent. You could replace the placeholder images with your own branded image (I’ve seen a couple of customers do this). But I’d really recommend to have at least some images in your site if you want to use this theme.

As for a trial version – I’m afraid that’s not something that is available from Themeforest.

Default-user

Ah, well. Thanks for the prompt replies, in any case.

Can this theme take woocommerce? for a paid subscription plugin?

Hi there, this theme has not been tested with ecommerce plugins. Your best bet would be to have a look at some of the woocommerce specific themes here on Themeforest.

Hi Nuno, yes I’m keeping the theme up to date and compatible with the latest versions of Wordpress :) and yes, the social icons you see in the live preview come with the theme.

Hi,

Thinking of buying this theme after playing about with it on a friend’s website. I just have 2 concerns:

1. I tested out removing the image from single.php, but there seemed to be a bit of a gap at the top and it also removed the ‘published on’ and author. Is there a way to remove just the image and leave the published date etc. (with not weird gaps). I’ve played about a bit with hers, but the bar just spread across the whole page. Want to be sure this is possible before I purchase as I don’t like not having publish dates

2. Secondly, with jetpack sharing turns on the sharing text becomes rather big, making it out of place (the rest of the text is fine). Is there a way to fix this

OllieMcCarthy

Hi,

1 – Yes it’s possible but it’s a customisation. Not a very hard one either.

2 – Sounds like a little css is all that’s need to sort that out. I can sort that out for you since it’s a compatibility issue.

Default-user

Thanks for your reply Are you able to show me an example so that I can see that it’ll look okay before I purchase?

OllieMcCarthy

I can’t becuase it would take far too long to go through all my support tickets to find a customer who did that specific customisation. This is a pre-sales question so I can only allocate a limited time to your queries.
