Hi gryphonwebsites,

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?

You can register via this page on Obox: http://www.obox-design.com/register.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 am considering buying this theme, but I have a couple questions first.

Can you change the colors?

Is there any way to put a advertisement banner to the right of the logo at the top of the theme?

Thanks!

Hi Javiierrrrr

Are you uploading handmade-package.zip or handmade-single.zip? You need to unzip the -package.zip file before uploading the theme to your site.

If the problem still persists please drop us a line in the forums so that our tech support crew can help out.

Hi yderindere

I am really sorry for the frustration. Would you mind dropping me an email so that I can help you with the issue and gain you access to our forums.

My email is: david@obox.co.za

~ Dave

Hey Dave, nice theme. Can I be cheeky and ask what script style font you used for the Handmade Theme logo in the header?

I am interested in buying this theme, but I have 2 questions first.

1) Is it easy to make the blog the front page with no htaccess issues? I only ask as I previously had this issue with a theme I purchased somewhere else.

2) Can support help me, or is there already widget positions to have 3 columns? I need main content in middle and 1 sidebar on left, and 1 sidebar on right.

Thanks!

Hi Websiteguy

Thanks for your interest in Handmade, it’s a great theme! Yep it most definitely is.

You can set the home page to have a blog layout by simply clicking one button in the theme settings.

Unfortunately the theme doesn’t come with a 3 column blog layout but we do have a set of Approved Modifiers who could help out with that: http://www.obox-design.com/approved_modifiers.cfm

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

~ Dave

This theme looks pretty! half the time I got to my blog I receive a porn site. YES a porn site! It’s not my web host either, I host many different blogs using many different themes. And it’s only happening with this one. I’d watch out.

Hi Munchybugs

Are you running the latest version of the theme? I’d suggest contacting your host to find out if your site has been hacked.

I am thinking of purchasing this theme but I notice that several people are having problems with it. I also notice that some people don’t get replies for their questions right away, so I’m a little hesitant to purchase.

Also, I have a couple of questions:

1 – Can I use my own colors? 2 – Can I remove the little gold design around my tagline in the top right corner? 3 – Can I remove ‘Handmade’ in the top left corner and use my company name there instead?

Thank you, Linda

Hi Linda,

1) You can however you will need to modify the CSS in order to do so. 2) You can do so with a small tweak to the CSS . If you leave the tagline blank then the gold design will disappear as well. 3) Yep, you can upload any logo you like :)

~ Dave

Thank you very much, Dave. I appeciate your response, however you don’t say how to accomplish those things. I need answers right away so I tried to register with Obox so that I could post on that forum as you suggested to some people above. But I can’t even register! No matter what email address I try to sign up with, I get an error message that says I need to ‘enter a valid email address’.

So to recap, I am having trouble with the Handmade theme, I need help right away, I can’t reach the author of the theme, and I can’t create an Obox account to post on their forums to try to get help.

In addition to the questions I’ve already posted here and on the ThemeForest forum, I just now ran into another problem that seems to be common with this theme. When the Handmade theme instructions say ‘Portfolio’, do they actually mean ‘Gallery’? I cannot find the word ‘Portfolio’ anywhere on my dashboard, so how can I follow the directions for creating a ‘Portfolio’ if the instructions are telling me to find something that does not seem to exist?

Under “Creating a Portfolio Page”, the instructions say ”. . . select the Portfolio List option which is on the right hand side under Page Attributes-Templates”. But there is no ‘Portfolion List Option’ on the right hand side under Templates. There is only Default Template, Archives, Full Page, Gallery List, and Widgetized Page. This is just one example of the problems I am having in trying to follow your instructions.

Also, I cannot change the order of the tabs on the home page. I go into the area to change the order of the tabs, I input a different number, but the order of the tabs doesn’t change.

I was so excited to buy this really cute theme but I am beginning to regret this purchase :-(

Linda

I was afraid this would happen. I’ve already bought this theme, and now I can’t seem to get any help. I posted the above questions 4 days ago, and still haven’t gotten any assistance. And I can’t log onto the oBox forums because there is some kind of issue with that site. :-(

Is there a security risk with this theme?

I received this email today:

Dear customer,

This is a courtesy notice that we have found and corrected exploitable timthumb.php file(s) on your account, which are listed below. While we have corrected these files, we do recommend you ensure all potential exploits are corrected on your account. This is best done by updating all scripts, plugins, modules and themes on your account to the latest version.

As the owner of the account, you are responsible for keeping your hosted content free of malicious software. For technical assistance, you can also reach our chat team from Bluehost.com or by going directly to:

http://www.bluehost.com/chat

The timthumb.php file is a script commonly used in WordPress’s (and other software’s) themes and plugins to resize images. The exploit allows an attacker to arbitrarily upload and create files and/or folders on your account, which can then be used for a number of malicious tasks, including but not limited to defacement, browser high-jacking and infection, data harvesting and more. After a site has been exploited, it may lead to becoming labeled a “Malicious Website” by Google or other security authorities.

Any timthumb.php file below version 1.35, but above version 1.09 is considered vulnerable, unless patched. To prevent being compromised, we advise you update all instances of timthumb.php to version 2.0, or patch the existing vulnerable files. Note that patching the files requires more in-depth knowledge of the PHP scripting language.

The updated version of timthumb.php can be found here:

http://timthumb.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/timthumb.php

We have automatically patched the following files for you:

Hi Linda

Please make sure you’re running the latest version of HandMade. TimThumb should not be causing you any issues. If you DO have the latest version then please include it in the email regarding support.

~ Dave

The last several comments swayed my decision not to purchase..thanks lol. Not into themes that make it a pain to ACTUALLY customize either.

Hi Kreativ31

Is there anything I can help with to sway your decision back? We have seen a few successful modifications of Handmade recently. Here is a great example of a Handmade Modification:

If you want to get in touch with me personally you can mail me at david [at] obox [dot] co [dot] za

~ Dave

Could you send me some screenshots of the admin area, so I can see how many options are available without having to dive into code? How tedious would it be for me customize it myself.

Hi Kreativ31

David:

I have sent you several emails. Have you not received them? Could they be in your junk mail folder?

The lady who does my clip art has suggested that I ask for a refund as she says this theme seems complicated to work with. I really like the theme though so I hesitate to give up on it just yet.

Please check your email as I would really be interested to see if you can help me.

Thank you! Linda
