I wonder if I buy a license for $ 45 will be able to download files from thema and install on my server?

boostdevelopers

Yes buying a $45 license will allow you to install the theme on your server. I recommend you read http://themeforest.net/licenses/regular for full explanation about the single license :)

I am sorry but my previous question was not answered. Maybe it’s not a very smart question but: I had issues with previous theme I used which was done with AJAX as well. And the problem with it was that pages where not indexing well with Google. So my question again is: How google/ SEO friendly is this theme ? ( I know a lot of developers specify it in their descriptions. You have no mention at all. I am looking forward to your reply. Thank you very much for your time!

boostdevelopers

Hi infisoul, sorry for missing your first comment! I imagine you had a theme that ran the whole site with AJAX. This is not the case with Inspire, we only use AJAX for the filter menu. So all posts and pages will be nicely indexed :)

Great theme! I am considering purchasing this theme, but have a question. Can you create multiple sidebars? I would like different sidebars for different pages. After watching your demo videos, it seems as though you can only have one sidebar. Can you show a sidebar on the home page as well?

boostdevelopers

Hi there, thank you! The theme only has one sidebar. But there’s plugins out there which you can use. I just tested this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multiple-sidebars/ with Inspire and it works great! Right now you can’t have a sidebar on the homepage, since the layout is not really made for it. However it is definitely something we will consider for a future update.

Hello there and congrats for your great theme. It’s really a joy to find every once in a while themes like this one. I purchased yesterday, uploaded through ftp and today i tried to activate the theme but i got the following error:

HostICanT – Unmetered Bandwidth

Oppss… It seems you have made some changes, which have caused a few problems. Please view below… Internal Server Error 500.

Incorrect file and/or folder permissions (greater than 755)
.htaccess issue (php_flag, php_value statements,etc.)
Other possible reasons

Please help Thank You

hi again and sorry for being such a pain with all the questions. I have just one more concern and that is with lag time which is pretty notesable between when the page loads and when the content loads. (especially with slower connections) My concern is that it can also put some strain on the server during high traffic time. Is that something you are looking to improve in next updates?

boostdevelopers

Load times depend mostly on what media you choose to include in your posts. If you choose to embed a lot of let’s say youtube videos then the theme will have to wait for youtube to respond and send you the data needed for embedded videos. The theme itself operates with very little lag time and does not put any extraordinary strain on your server (we only query specifically for posts needed). :)

boostdevelopers

Hi again, I have just been in contact with our server-provider (one.com) and they admit to having had network problems intermittently for the last couple of weeks (when I visited our preview site earlier today there was a major slowdown as well). They fixed the current network issue and the site is now up and running at normal speed again. Maybe you were unlucky to test our preview site at the time of a slowdown – and I hope you will consider visiting our preview site again. :)

Hi,instead of “load more” can you change that to pagination page? just like normal blog?

boostdevelopers

Hi begoo. You can choose to load new posts either with the “load-more” button or by infinity scroll. We do not have an option for pagination. Also we encourage you to quickly find relevant posts by using our filter menu :)

Ok so i realized that the reason that my updates were not taking was because i was using Google Chrome as my browser. I switched to FireFox, and it worked better.

My next big challenge is putting up images up for posts that correctly find their proper places. This, and all the learning processes could really be helped with a YouTube how-to!

Here’s how far I’ve gotten… I’ve realized putting up images for posts individually will not find them on the home page, in the columns, or the top slider bar.

I’ve tried using the very tiresome “FAQ” instructions (it gets only 1.5 starts for good reason) on this site to go about the cropping, labeling and putting all required images in a zip file. I even used the “Switch to the multi-file uploader” to upload my zip folder to no avail.

Please help!

boostdevelopers

Hi eyasu, maybe our 3-part video walk-through of the Inspire theme options can be of help to you:

Part 1 (Post settings): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JqBD6jPBfE Part 2 (Inspire Widgets): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYjWbn_7L-A Part 3 (Theme options): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJ_C5sFUlrw

If you don’t find what you need you are always welcome to contact us by e-mail form from our profile page and we will try to help out. :)

boostdevelopers

Also, it sounds like you are not assigning a “Featured image” to your posts. If you take a look at the documentation file that comes with the theme, you’ll see a section on “Post Thumbnails”

This sort of thing takes away from your company’s credibility!

boostdevelopers

Eyasu, we’re doing everything we can to help you. Trust me, the featured image functionality is how you get images to show up on the homepage as well as your post page. And as we have said many times, send us an email, include a link to your site and we will take a look at it and help you out. If you go to our profile page you’ll see a contact form: http://screensnapr.com/v/vT5qKk.jpg

Your last remark is quite offensive. We have absolutely no control over the time stamps on comments. Only the people behind Themeforest would be able to change that. So please refrain yourself from making such accusations.

Thank you.

Hi Folks,

Love this theme. Considering buying it. Before I do. Two Questions.

1. Is it possible to have a post slider that shows images and video in s single post? Like for a post showing an art gallery with a video interview of the artist?

2. If it is not possible to have a slider in a post, can you tell me if the theme plays well with Revolution slider. I ask because I have tried other themes and apparently, a late call(at the end of the page) to jQuery will crash Revolution Slider, which is the tool I chose after trying many to have rich post sliders of galleries etc

3. Last but not least, do you include documentation in download or is it web based.

Keep up the great work and thanks for taking a moment to help me make the best decision as I have had horrible luck with other themes.

Take Care lo

boostdevelopers

Hi Lanceoditt!

1) Unfortunately the theme doesn’t have that functionality at the moment. But we had a few people talking about this, so it is definitely something we will look into! 2) We haven’t tested the theme with Revolution slider. But in case you get the theme and it doesn’t play well together, we will of course try to help you out as best as we can! 3) The documentation is only included in the download folder. However we have also made a few walk-through videos which can be viewed on youtube.

Thanks for the interest!

Ok. 3 Questions. Sorry :)

This looks amazing and exactly what I’m looking for. I’d like to use this as a “portal” news site for our churches worldwide and we use Feedburner for RSS feeds for content. I’m fairly new at using it but I was wondering if this would work with it.

Also if we’re pulling content from others sites will it create the images automatically? My thinking was to use it with 3 columns like your demo.

Is turning the images black and white an option as well? I love that when you mouseover they colorize.

Thanks again!

boostdevelopers

Hi Onekea, Thanks for the kind words! I must admit I don’t have any experience doing that. Will you be using a plugin to automatically make the posts from the rss feeds? In that case it would need to insert the images into the featured image WordPress functionality.

Yes that is the default option :) You can disable/enable the grayscaling as you like!

Hi, can you put ads 300×250 on homepage? or any size of ads on homepage?

boostdevelopers

Yes you can insert 300×250 ads in the sidebar :)

Default-user

what about on front page? homepage

Default-user

I can see your ads 300×250 on single post but what about on front page?

boostdevelopers

Unfortunately we don’t have an option to have a 300×250 ad on the homepage. Sorry i misread your question. I think a 728×90 ad would fit better on the frontpage. But you would have to hardcode that into the theme, which we of course could help you doing.

Hello Again. Everything is setup correctly and works perfect except the footer gallery. I dnt know if i have done something wrong but i think there is a conflict with a plugin i use called “lightbox evolution”. When its enabled, the footer gallery is messed up and no posts appear in front page. Could you please help or should i look for another lightbox plugin?

thank you N.

boostdevelopers

Hi Aserverle. If the “lightbox evolution” plugin is somehow conflicting with the Inspire Theme I would definitely encourage you to switch to another lightbox plugin. Conflicts with 3rd party plugins is something that is almost unavoidable when using Wordpress themes and trying to fix it is almost impossible as it could be a single line of code amongst hundred thousand lines that creates the conflict somewhere in the plugin. :)

how can i replace the comment count inside the bubble (homepage) functionality with facebook comments count instead?

thanks.

There is no option for this in the Inspire theme so you will have to do a bit of customization in the code. If you send us an e-mail through the form on our profile page we can give you a few pointers to get you started. :)

Do you plan on making this work on an iPad in portrait mode? I was going to purchase but want to know if this will be made truly responsive. Also, the footer’s gray box does not go completely across the bottom on iPad. Otherwise, it’s beautiful and my fave so far. Thanks.

boostdevelopers

Hi analogchew,

We fixed this in the latest update. Forgot to update the demo site! Will do that asap.

Thanks for the kind words!

Default-user

To be clear, if I purchase Inspire and and start implementing, it will definitely sense rotating between Portrait and Landscape when I try it again on my iPad? I don’t want to purchase unless you can guarantee that. Hope you understand considering it’s non-refundable. Thanks again!

Hi again,

The demo site has just been updated. So you can go check it out before purchasing :)

Bought it.

Whats the max image I can upload? is the image resize automaticly or not?

I’ve uploaded 1 image (big size),look ok on front page but when I clicked the post and goes to single page, the big image look huge and even override the sidebar?

Do I have to edit big image to your max size?

boostdevelopers

Did you upload the image before or after you installed the theme? If you did it before then you should run the plugin called Regenerate Thumbnails http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

If you did it after, then please send us an email with a link to your site and wp-admin info so we can take a better look at the issue. Thanks!

Brilliant Theme. Love the infinite scroll options. I’m buying this for sure. A few questions.

1. Is it possible to add share icons with counter in homepage posts? ( see posts in thrillerhood.com or share icons thats hidden and shown like mashable? )

2. Is it possible to add sections with widgets on the home page? I’m usually in need of an archive section or most popular articles section widget.

3. Would it be possible to create categories that doesn’t show in “ALL” I’d like to create separate blog feeds that aren’t connected to the overall site?

Thanks much. Again, absolutely BRILLIANT theme.

Best, Andy

boostdevelopers

1+2. There are no options for this so you would have to do a bit of customization to achieve those features.

3. Yes in the theme options you can choose which of your categories to leave out of the “Show All” view. Take a look at part 3 of our back-end presentation to see how this works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJ_C5sFUlrw

Thanks! I just went ahead and purchased the theme. Is there a way to show the soundcloud viewer in the homepage with the classic blog posts style? http://i.imgur.com/YUWtTQw.jpg

I tried inputing the soundcloud code into the post, but it doesn’t show. I used it in my other blogs and it works fine. I haven’t found a way with Inspire yet.

It would be incredibly useful for my audience just to click on the homepage instead of going into the post.

Thanks! By the way, do you have a support forum?

boostdevelopers

Hi Andy,

So if you want the soundcloud to be shown on the classic blog style you need to insert your soundcloud embed code into your excerpt, like so: http://screensnapr.com/v/bKP28o.jpg

Hope that helps! We don’t have a support forum just yet, but it’s something that we’ll be having in the near future :)

Hi Again,

1. Is there a way to organize the categories on the front page?

2. Is there a way to make the Header Logo highlight a lighter or darker shade when browsed over. ( example: http://themewich.com/extranews/ )

3. Is there an option to change the highlight text color to another color?f When you highlight something on the site its a different color like red instead of the standard light blue.

4. Is there a way to show categories in each of the individual posts on the home page?

Thanks again.

5. Small Issue with the “Inspire Posts” widget. It displays both List and Grid.

7. Very Slow Load on Mobile. I takes more than several minutes ( before i added soundcloud players ) But on desktop browser its fine.

8. Is there a screen responsive update coming soon? ( mobile is nice, but wondering if theres screen responsive as well—- where you half the screen and theme moves the site contents around. ) Similar to this http://themeforest.net/item/extranews-responsive-news-and-magazine-theme/full_screen_preview/3102218

9. Is there a way to create a page that displays all post as classic view? My homepage is set as 4 column—-which is preferred, but I’d like to create page for the top menu that lets the user just view all posts without the homepage slider.

Thanks much! Andy

boostdevelopers

Hi andy,

1. Right now the categories is ordered in alphabetic order. We might look into giving the user more control over this in a update, though

2. See bottom of comment

3. You can change the link color by going to Inspire Settings > Appearance > change main color. Is this what you are after?

4. Not as of right now, except the user can sort the posts by categories, so they’ll only see posts from that category. Again we’ll note this down and look into it

5. Glad you got it fixed

6. I see, that happens when you don’t have a featured image. We’ll fix this for the next update!

7. I just tested your site on my phone and it loaded just fine. Do you still have loading problems? There should be no difference between desktop and mobile

8. Unfortunately we don’t have any plans for this in the near future

9. If you link a category to your menu it’ll show up as the classic style view. So you could have a dropdown with all your categories in your main menu. But making a blog page template is definitely something we’ll look into.

10 & 2. Could you send us an email with your wp-admin info so we can take a better look at this problem.

Thanks andy. Ps. i really like your site good job!

Default-user

3. Highlighting as in when you try to copy/and paste text you would higlight the text. Normally you would see light blue. But theres a way to set the option to highlight in a different color.

7. It’s still pretty bad on my phone. I’m on Android. I’ll go check on my friends phones with another android/iphone and see what happens.

8. I can’t really be too sad about this. The theme is AMAZING. but it would be a really nice touch though.

9. A blog page template would be really nice. Thanks.

10 & 2. emailed.

boostdevelopers

3. I see, you need to insert following code into the style.css file (and just change the color to whatever you want)

::selection { background: #ffb7b7; } ::-moz-selection { background: #ffb7b7; }

7. I’m on a Samsung Galaxy S2, and your site loads as fast as on my desktop

11. Seems to be category mix ups on the front page. Using the category menu. I clicked on R&B and it’s loading other categories.

Try clicking on R&B and scroll down to find ASAP ROCKY. ASAP ROCKY doesn’t have the R and B category attached to it. A few other posts are showing up in it too that doesn’t belong in it.

Just figured out that the widget that shows both the grid/list while selecting only the list feature only appears that way in admin view. Not logged in it looks fine. I guess things look odd in admin only but normal when not logged in.

The article is 6 posts down and the older posts are higher in latest.

Ah thanks so much. Yeah, I transferred it from another theme. There’s so many things I need to adjust on my end. My fault. Thanks for clarifying.

Hi there! This is a problem with your server configuration. Write us a mail through the e-mail form on our profile page and we will guide you through the necessary changes.

the file_get_contents function is part of the automatic update checker. You could try simply turning off the update checker: Inspire Settings > General > Automatically check for updates (Uncheck).
