I have a question before purchasing this theme, which I think is gorgeous, is it possible to make the template broader and change the size of columns? I would like the grid on desktop wider. Thank you

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, you could but it would be a tricky customisation, you would need very good css skills.

hi OllieMcCarthy,

Loving your theme, my site is photographytricks.com

As a non-developer, I have one question…

What are the main differences between themes like yours vs a WP framework like Genesis?

Thanks

OllieMcCarthy

Thanks :) frameworks are like blank canvases whereas themes have a more focused ‘out of the box’ type features.

Hi Ollie.

i want to buy your theme. But i want to learn something about pics.if i upload different size pics do they seem automatically same size or do i have to upload only one size pics?

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, as long as your images are larger than 620×350 they will be automatically be re-sized into the various thumbnail sizes.

The social count for twitter is not working again. I installed the updated theme and it worked for a few days. If I look at the error log, it says it is timing out. Also, I did the thumbnail resize but that didn’t help. I still have to upload the exact size image or it will overlap the text.

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, can you open a ticket for that please: http://omc.ticksy.com/

Another question. When I use any app to feed my posts to Facebook, only the default image comes through, not my feature image.

hi ollie,

I was considering buying this great theme but I noticed a small problem in the main manu: when you switch to a mobile (small) resolution, the drop-down menu loses some items (“features”) and all the sub-items.

how can I go to sub-pages of the main menu, when I’m browsing with a mobile device?

thanks

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, I’ve setup the mobile menu on the live preview so that it’s different to the main one. The reason being that there are a lot of items in the main menu and it’s a little overwhelming navigating it on a phone. However you can have as many or as little as you like.

Just signed up on your support site but it’ll probably be quicker here.

Basically I want these things removed:

July 20th, 2013 | admin (on Homepage)

+

Published on July 20th, 2013 | by admin (on posts / pages etc.), still want to keep the comment count if possible.

I figured out how to remove the author box with custom css but don’t know how to do this.

Hi there, please use the support site. Thanks.

I really like your design and considering to buy it. But I have one question: Is it possible to use a classical blogposting style (like a journal) like this http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/adventure-journal/ instead of this magazine like posting (a lot of pictures/links less text) in your preview?

Has someone a screenshot or link of this classical design? Thanks for your help

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, that theme has a very different style to Gonzo. I would recommend having a look here at themeforest to see if there is theme that matches the textured style you want.

Thinking to purchase this theme. Is it possible to change the highlight color from the yellow, blue, green, etc to a different color?

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, yes absolutely – you can change it to whatever colour you wish.

@ OllieMcCarthy

Phinphin here. Reply button doenst show up, so I have to start a new comment.

Anyway, your style 1 was what I ‘ve meant: http://www.olliemccarthy.com/themes/gonzo/?cat=6 Right the sidebar and to the left a single column showing posts. That’s fine.

Next question: I am going to migrate from blogger to wordpress. As I can see, the width of your style isn’t fixed. So it adjusts to the screen resolution. I have a lot of pictures in my blogposts with a size of 600 width. What happens if they dont fit in the content area of your design. Will they be automatic resized or will they be cutted by the sidebar?

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, the left content area is 620px wide so they should accommodate your images. Also keep in mind that you might have to redo the featured images for your posts if moving from Blogger (I’ve never used it so can’t certain on it).

Default-user

With “featured image” you mean the slideshow. Don’t you?

OllieMcCarthy

Yes and no – you’ll need to add featured images for the slideshow to work but you’ll also need to add featured images to the posts (it won’t scan the post for img tags like in wp older themes).

Default-user

Ah, okay. That doesn’t matter :) How are these images added? Manual via the cms or do I have to edit the php code?

OllieMcCarthy

There’s an easy uplode for it. No need to mess with code.

I have a question prior to buying this theme. Is there a function to allow for users and the ability to put a register/sign in bar at the top? I want to be able to have a user base not associated with Facebook/Twitter.

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, it’s not an ‘out of the box’ feature but I’d imagine there are plugins for that.

holla something i want to ask is how to set the Facebook Comment as the default commenting system without the wordpress ones

and can i have the latest comments sidebar integrated with that facebook comment?

thankyou before

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, you can have just the facebook comments if you wish. However it won’t be integrated default ‘latest comments’ widget.

Default-user

how to set the Facebook Comment as a default commenting system for all post/ pages? so i don’t have to choose between facebook/ default wp comment everytime i do new post

OllieMcCarthy

On version 1.8.4 of the Gonzo theme you can open up single.php and on line 23 you need to change it to this:

$omc_comment_type = 'fb';

Hello OllieMcCarthy,

is this theme is easy to modify internal code ??? as i want many modifications like 2 menu bars primary and secondary in the header part

Your theme was awesome :)

Thank You

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, yes you can activate a secondary menu for the header in the theme options. It sits at the very top of the page and has a black background.

Hello Ollie,

How i can change the background images ? Is that easy or complicated ?

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, yes you can change the backgrounds very easily. There are dedicated uploaders for it.

Hello Ollie,

I am considering the purchase of your theme as I run a record label. I am wondering what options are available to me in terms of properly setting up this theme to host music, podcasts, videos, and a blog. Is there a music player plug in?? Are there any examples of current record labels using this theme??

Please let me know

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, the theme supports soundcloud and video embeds. However keep in mind that there isn’t a player for self-hosted audio built into the theme. Although I have seen a couple of people use a plugin for that.

As for examples of record labels using the theme. I’ve seen a lot of music blogs but not sure if I’ve seen an actual record label. There’s a thread in my support site where lots of people have posted their gonzo powered sites. You can sign up without purchase and have a look if you want: http://omc.ticksy.com/ticket/3520

Hello there,

If I purchase the theme can you send me the psd file with all included ? I need to make a presentation of the design first.

Thank you

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, I’m afraid I don’t have any psd files for this theme. The reason being that this went straight from sketches on paper to the browser. I pretty much bypassed photoshop completely.

Hello,

I would like to your theme for a magazine website, as it is clean and great looking.

I just have a quick few questions regarding the preset locations I see on template for the advertising spaces – will your theme only work with AdPress you recommend or will it work with any other advertising plugins on Codecanyon? Is AdPress the best one and that is why you recommend it?

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards, Jhorene

OllieMcCarthy

Hi, back when I was developing the theme there weren’t a lot of options available for responsive advertising and Adpress stood out as a system that was flexible enough to work with a responsive layout.

Since then a lot has changed. Adpress is still a great option if you are dealing directly with your sponsors. Alternatively you could use Adsense if, which is now responsive (it just needs a snippet of javascript).

As for other advertising systems – the best thing is to do a little research to make sure that they are responsive. If they are you can use them with the theme.

Can we add google ads for this theme?

OllieMcCarthy

Hi. absolutely. Adsense now works with responsive layouts so you’ll be fine. There’s a snippet of js code that you need to add to one of the theme files but we can help you out with that.

OllieMcCarthy,

How do I update this theme without losing my current setup and other plguins?

Thanks

OllieMcCarthy

Hi there, that all depends on what changes you’ve made. If the only changes you made are in the theme options you’ll be fine. Simply delete the theme in Wordpress and upload the latest gonzo.zip file.

Otherwise you’ll need to refer to the changelog.txt file, compare the version number between your current theme and the latest. Then you manually update the different files via FTP.

Remember to backup your theme files either way.
