Hi

You can add as many projects as you wish. The online preview only shows two (four actually), because it is advertised as a multi-purpose theme, so we didn’t insert more projects to not make the preview bloated with this.

Regards, Ruben.

hollyyy shhhh*ttt.

i seriously cant wait for your crowdfunding themes man. Please please please please be sooooo freaking good. Here are some pointers for you :

1. When you compare Fundify and Crowdpress themes, as you can see, the images on crowdpress loads slower than Fundify. Like super slow. Try to avoid that sir.

2. Fundify offers a very simple platform, which is very nice to look at! Veryyy nice! Crowdpress? Too much stripes here and there. But Fundify went too simple at one point, as we can see, the registration panel, the login page. I use to run Fundify on my site, and for feedbacks section, they said my registration form and login page doesnt look legit for a company holding a large sums of money for the customers. I must agree. All they have was the same page, with username and password fields. No Banners no nothing. The off point was when our users enter the wrong password, it will redirect to the wordpress login page? WTH? Is that a good design for a crowdfunding site? Hell No. What you should do is something like this : http://demo.astoundify.com/marketify/join-now/ with lots more fields options so developer can decide what kind of details do they need from the campaign owner/funder. Why? Because your template will be going for global. Certain countries need some infos for legal action, you need to make those fields of requirements customisable to ensure it suits every developers need no matter where they from.

3. What is the most important thing in crowdfunding templates? The presentation. A very good presentation will make it work. So what campaign owners need are the tools to design a masterpiece, the king of all presentations! BUT no matter what kind of plugin we developers installed for the editing part, the template itself will put a limit to our campaign owners creativity. What kind of presentation page will you make for your template buyers? What can your buyers offer to their own customer? I know. A crowdfunding campaign, a page, where almost everything can be customised. For example :

Fix Layout : 1. Pledge layout and style *the normal options for numbers of choices to pledge 2. Fonts for the website *we dont need book of fonts. 3. Base colours for the website fonts *nobody like colourful things. it makes you dizzy. 4. The arrangement for presentation *for example the first slot was for featured image/videos, second one for who are you and what you do, third one for why you need them, and so on. It needs to be optional. Why? Because design arrangement can be unique, but not for informations arrangement. It needs to be smart and in order. when you get used to read “about us” as the first thing on every campaign, I bet you would hate it when you cant find them first on some campaign. Correct? Might wanna avoid that.

Customisable Campaign Layout: Background Image. Thats all. Why?

Remember when people wear suits, they decide to wear the perfect ties to bring out the eyes or something like that? A plain background, or site fixed background for examples a majestic picture of a dolphin somehow sinks the masterpiece made by campaign owner. When a campaign owners design a presentation for his/her project, they often think of something like this, “if only I can change the background to something more lighter, damn the featured image/slideshows would’ve look better!”... So yes. Its important to have one.

4. Social Sharing options and Total Pledges/Days To Go Layout. You might want to copy what Fundify have to offer. The font size was perfect,the colourful icons was astonishing. Thats a good simple. The registration form? Bad simple. Just make it more.. how do we say this. Stand out a little?

5. Finally. For the homepage and page layouts. I noticed something from your previous designs on “Goodwork” and “Better”... the spacings between module, was just too huge. I dont know if it was my macbook but man there is a gap there, like a hole or something. For example “Better” homepage, between Our Services and Recently Published.. wew. You just see emptiness there. Like there should be something loading right now right on that spot but nothing appeared. I know you are trying to put in something creative but somehow minimalist together, but it doesnt work when you put users on hold for anxiety over lack of informations. Over crowded page will do you no good. But a page fulls of informations in the right ORDER and ARRANGEMENT. That will help users to feel save and fills their needs for more informations. Thats how mashable manage to survive.

Sorry for the long posts. I mastered in human resources and psychology in my country. Pardon my english sir. Its might not sounds as good as I wanted them to be. But I think I made my point. To whoever who read this, please, back me up if you want KrownThemes to make the best crowdfunding templates of all time. OR, fix my english for me please. Thanks.

Hi

Thanks for your interest and suggestions, however, the theme is already built and we’re tied up to the plugin that we are using.

1. All of our themes are fast :)

2. Our theme will use the IgnitionDeck Enterprise version for front end submission, which pretty much has it’s own structure, but we’ve designed everything to be easy and intuitive. You cannot add more fields however, only with custom heavy work. The plugin has a certain structure so you need to coope with that.

3 & 4. You’ll see how the theme looks like and see if you like it or not. As i’ve said, the design is already created, the concept is solid and we’ll stick with that.

5. We like whitespace and this theme also has it – maybe less than other themes but it is presnet.

Again, when buying stock files you really need to be ok with what you see. If you want a custom build design after your own needs you need to be ready to hire someone to do it just for you.

This theme will be a really simple theme focused on CrowdFunding, without useless features or a bloated design.

Regards, Ruben.

Hello,

I’m interested in your theme, but I wish to launch it as a multi-language site for people from different countries. Does the theme support this feature?

Thanks.
