beautiful theme ! excellent platform integration… I wish you a lot of sales…

A question: when you say it works alongside the desktop theme…. Does it mean we need to enter specific post and pages ?

P.

BonfireThemes

Thank you :)

Posts and pages that are published on your desktop theme will also be published on the mobile theme. Does that answer your question?

yes ! Thank you :-)

Similar pre-sales question to poivre:

If my current theme has a page type called ummm, XYZ, and I install your theme as mobile only, will all the pages with the page type XYZ still display on the mobile version, with the content (only?) of the original page. Most of the other mobile themes will only show a blank page on a mobile device and as a work around we have to make a new page for mobile only with the original content. And posts . . . well it’s even more complicated.

BonfireThemes

Hey texxs, I just tested it out to confirm. When the desktop theme (I tried 2 different ones) had a page template that HERO didn’t have, then the content was still shown on HERO, just on the default template.

As for post formats, they worked fine as well. HERO has all the default WP post formats covered (Aside, Link, Gallery, Status, Quote, Image), plus a few extra ones.

Bottom line, you shouldn’t run into any problems.

I am having problems with this theme. I have setup the menu system as described in instructions. And it run perfect when it is the main theme on my iPhone. BUT, when it is the secondary theme and Any Mobile Them Switcher points to it… the menu goes away. www.ditchmarketing.com

BonfireThemes

Hey ditch, I already replied to your email with the same question an hour ago. Did you not get it?

I’ve also updated the documentation with an answer to this, it’s processing now.

Nope, can you give the solution in this forum?

BonfireThemes

Well that’s peculiar to say the least. Did it land in the spam folder? But here’s how to do it, should take you just a minute.

Hero has to be momentarily activated for this, if you know how to edit files via FTP then that will work too of course.

In your WordPress backend go to Appearance > Editor, and from there click on header.php. Once loaded, scroll to the bottom of the file and look for this bit of code (should be the on the 9th line from the bottom):

<?php wp_nav_menu( array( ‘container_class’ => ‘menu01’, ‘theme_location’ => ‘main-nav’ ) ); ?>

To get your menu working you’ll have to replace that code with the one below:

<?php wp_nav_menu( array(‘menu’ => ‘MENU NAME HERE’ )); ?>

For example, if the menu you want to use is called “Mobile Menu”, then the new code would be:

<?php wp_nav_menu( array(‘menu’ => ‘Mobile Menu’ )); ?>

Once the change is made, click the “Update File” button and go check out your menu!

That worked. Awesome Thanks!

I have another question… Is there a way to swap out the text logo title with a logo PNG file?

BonfireThemes

Yeah, you can put a logo in there. In header.php, replace ”<?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>” with your image code. It’s on line 35.

If you don’t know how or are having problems, send me the logo via email and I’ll have it changed in a hurry.

What would my “image code” be? The image is …http://www.ditchmarketing.com/web_design/Ditch_logo.png

Sorry, like to do things myself. Teach a man to fish…

My next question is… My menu headers are also links to pages. If they are “sub”s then I lose the link to the page. If they are “text” then I lose the other menu items. So, is there a way for them to be both?

BonfireThemes

Insert the image as: <img src="http://www.ditchmarketing.com/web_design/Ditch_logo.png" />

I don’t understand your menu question. Take it to email if you’d like to discuss it. Let’s not turn this into a support forum :)

BonfireThemes

I think I get it now. Your desktop site’s main level menu items can also be links because the sub menu is shown on hover. HERO’s sub menus are shown when the main item is clicked. You could turn it into hover as well though, which is fairly easy.

You just have to make a little change in accordion.js (it’s in the “js” folder inside the theme folder); change the word “toggle” to “hover”, and that should do it all nice and proper.

That said, I’d sure appreciate if you’d give the theme a nice rating :) Cheers.

Ugg, problem… when I changed to the PNG logo header… the menu disappeared. Do I need to add a clear or padding or something?

BonfireThemes

I can’t know without seeing exactly what change you made. I checked on my phone and it looks like you’ve removed the menu button too. Either that or it’s really hidden behind the logo.

Yeah, looks like you deleted the menu button. Can’t properly post code here, I emailed the menu button code to you. Put it under your logo.

Hi I am runnning the Invictus wordpress theme can you tell me how this would work in tandem. The theme works well on an ipad but I need a bit extra for mobile. Can you choose which devices it will pick up on?

BonfireThemes

Hi Paul. Yes, you can pick by devices. We recommend using a little plugin called Any Mobile Theme Switcher, which allows you to select which theme you want to appear on an iPad, iPhone, Android devices etc. It’s just a matter of selecting the theme in a drop down menu, ridiculously simple. Here’s a quick screenshot: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/any-mobile-theme-switcher/screenshots/

Hi, awesome looking mobile theme. I have a couple of questions. 1 How can I enable a custom logo? 2.And is it possible to have the landing website with latest posts from all categories? 3. Can this landing page be different from the desktop theme?

BonfireThemes

1. Email me and we can work through this easily. 2. That’s how it is by default; the blog index shows the latest posts. 3. It can, but we don’t provide support for that since the theme wasn’t designed with that in mind. I can shoot over a link I found though which explains how you could manage that.

Hi, thanks. I believe it is much more complicated that I thought- unfortunately. My standard desktop theme uses static pages which are then pupulated by the theme functions.

I need to check for the third option. Can you post the link here or shall I email you?

BonfireThemes

Mail me. You still want to handle the logo issue too I take it?

Hello, I would like to know how to add a custom logo. Also i would like to know how to make the header menu the same way like the footer option, that way, users don’t have to click the button, many people did not knew that was a button.

BonfireThemes

Hey there, thanks for the purchase.

Send me an email, I can’t paste code to switch out the logo text with a logo image in here. And when you say you want to have the menu the same way as the footer, I take it you mean you’d like to have it open by default?

Default-user

Correct.

I noticed that if you select your theme as the mobile theme altjernative the post thumbnails are not created and look very odd and pixelated. In order to get the correct image thumbnails I have to select your theme as default and regenarate the tumbnails via plugin. Any better and more elegant solution possibile?

BonfireThemes

Hmm, I just played around across different main themes and weren’t able to replicate the issue. What the theme does is pull the same images already posted/created. If their sizes are somehow messed up, I’m thinking it has something to do with your main theme.

If you’re still having problems, contact me via email (faster to respond that way) and send me your site address. I can’t really assist you otherwise.

I have created a custom background and uploaded via your “Background” setting. Also, I am using the “Any Mobile Theme Switcher”. If your theme is active, the background appears without issue. When the Hero is not active and is displayed on a mobile device via the theme switcher plugin, the background image does not appear and it defaults to a black background. Anu suggestions? Here is my site http://www.crystalbride.com/

Hey, thanks for the purchase!

Great theme, Thank you!

I have a small problem and was wondering if you could help please.

I’m using a theme for desktop view that requires the “Reading Settings” to be set for posts instead of a static page, and it doesn’t use/or have “menu” option. It generates a visual menu from “Pages”. It’s a very simple One Page Template. The issue comes down to me setting up the HERO them for mobile and w/o a “Menu” none of the pages show.

My work around this was to re-create each page as a post which shows on HERO but they are all stacked on top of each other and have a “no comment” button as well as a useless menu button under the logo. I wanted to get your input before I start digging into the style.css.

Any thoughts?

BonfireThemes

So what you need is to get rid of the menu button under the logo as well as the comment buttons for each post? Email me, quicker to respond that way.

This by far the best support I’ve gotten on TF. These guys not only design great themes but also offer really good and fast support.

I highly recommend this theme as it’s really easy to customize, looks great and gets the job done!

Fantastic job Bonfire. Please keep up the good work :bigsmile:

Super nice theme, but how can i install my social icon in the header? Any way to do this?

BonfireThemes

Hey there, thanks for the purchase.

Your social icon? Do you mean a Twitter or Facebook icon or what exactly? And where in the header? I’m about to head to bed but do shoot me an email explaining what you mean and I’ll get back to you first thing in the morning.

I’m sure we’ll get what you need done. Cheers.

Just purchased this theme, did I miss something?, am I supposed to see a screenshot in the Themes section? it’s blank

When I try to preview it shows all blank

Browser source shows no code

I have to delete theme folder in order to see my backend after I activate theme but why should I activate if I want to have my other theme as default?

Not working at all for me, the instructions state I have to make a Home and Blog page and change the homepage look? but why do I have to do that if I want my desktop theme to have the default look?

BonfireThemes

Hey there, thanks for the purchase :)

I’m guessing there’s something wrong with how you went about installing it. Also, you’re not supposed to activate it, just use the plugin we mention in the documentation to select is as the mobile theme.

Also, you don’t have to create Home and Blog pages, I believe you misread the instructions on that. That’s a completely optional thing. You don’t have to change your main theme at all.

Send me an email with your site address, I’ll help you get it up and running quickly. Cheers.

BonfireThemes

Hey there, I haven’t heard from you? I’d appreciate it if you could get back to me at you earliest convenience. It’s been 24 hours since you posted that you had problems and a comment like yours isn’t exactly good for sales :)

The theme works beautifully as many others who’ve bought it can and have attested to, so the problem must be on your end. I’d love to help you figure it out.

You have multiple points of contact; either email me through ThemeForest, or use the email address in the documentation’s front page.

Cheers :)

Default-user

I apologize for not replying, got it working, had to disable an annoying plugin.

One questions though, my main desktop theme has some codes that are showing up on my theme, what would you recommend so they can work together on both themes? to me it sounds very complex but maybe you have a suggestion?

Thanks! :)

BonfireThemes

Glad to hear you got it working, thanks for the update! :)

I’d have to know what kind of codes they are. Feel free to shoot me an email, I’d love to have a look.

I have 2 themes on my WP site. One for desktop browsers and Hero for mobile browsers. Each theme needs its own static Front Page. Right now I can only have one static Front page which is used by both themes. Is there a way to use a different static front page for each theme?

BonfireThemes

There is, shoot me an email. I’ll dig up a link for you.

Interested to buy this one. How easy is it to change from dark theme to light colours in panel? I dont want black background/menu, need it to match my site which is white.

BonfireThemes

Hey Aqua. Changing colors is quite easy. Make the purchase and shoot me an email, I’ll happily guide you through it :)
