Great theme. Really like it. One quick question though.
For adding albums and for the ‘popular songs’ sections are there any thoughts about allowing direct links to soundcloud or are we only able to upload them directly for the foreseeable future?
For the albums, it’s possible to make a direct links to soundcloud (use the external link option. see screeshot: http://d.pr/i/ojR9) or embed the iframes of your soundcloud player in the description area field (text tab).
For the homepage player, for no, it’s more complicated. The good news is that this will be possible very very soon. In fact, we’re pushing the widget ready theme today to themeforest. Once approved, you’ll be able to include a soundcloud player instead of the custom IronBand player.
Hello. Nice theme! I have a pre-purchase question about the audio player. On the homepage, there is an audio player called “Iron’s Songs” and I’m wondering about a few things: (1) Is it possible to remove the “All Albums” link? The band only has a few demo songs, not at album yet. (2) Because it is only demo songs, not an album, is it possible to remove the cover image and album name? (3) If it is indeed possible to remove the cover image and album name from the player, can more than one song be listed there – like a playlist, with the song names included? After an extensive search, I’m finding it very difficult to find a music theme where all the songs appear just as a playlist as opposed to being part of an album with cover, etc. Thanks.
Thanks for your comment.
1) Yes it’s possible to remove the “all albums” link
2) Yes it’s possible to remove the cover image and album name..I suggest maybe that you put your logo instead of the album cover. It’s up to you.
3)Yes it’s possible, you will need to click on the “next” arrow to skip/listen the other song in the play list. You can only have 1 playlist (with as many tracks as you want) on the homepage.
I noticed the homepage “news” post featured images re-size the aspect ratio of the images. The images look smushed… Maybe in the next version you could fix the resizing?
What are your settings in Settings > Media ?
Go to SETTINGS > MEDIA, make sure that MEDIUM is set to 696×800. The medium size is the one we use for the thumbnails in news. you will have to reupload your images after changing these settings.
I’m very excited to start working with this theme! Will bandcamp integration be available anytime soon?
yes. probably Monday or Tuesday! version 1.6 is coming!
The widget-ready theme is available right now here on ThemeForest.
Quick FAQ on how to update: http://it.ticksy.com/faq/1541
If I buy this theme can I implement the WooCommerce plugin to sell items, or is this theme not optimized for selling items? Thanks.
It’s not 100% optimized for WooCommerce.
WooCommerce will works. however, you will have to do some minor css tweaks.
I would like to purchase this theme because it is exactly what we are looking for, but we need WooCommerce. How hard is it to add the proper css code, and can you help me add it if I need the help? Thanks.
If you know CSS/PHP, it wouldn’t be that hard. I’ve seen 5-6 user who have integrate woocommerce.
Take note that we don’t offer direct support on how to integrate or make woocommerce work with IronBand at this time.
It’s on our plan to make IronBand 100% WooCommerce ready, but i can’t tell when. It’s on our plan to have it before 2014.
please can see the picture needed help to my page http://tekboyproject.com
Could you please open a support ticket at http://it.ticksy.com
Is there any other way to add more modules to the homepage? Or can I just add content from the actual page?>
For now, you can’t add new modules to the homepage. That’s called widget. The good news, is that we are going to launch version 1.6 that will fully support widgets. It should be available tonight or tomorrow.
Awesome! Thanks for the reply, you guys rock! Client will be happy about this update!
I dont see the option where I can edit the News section content. Where is that edited?
Also how can I remove items from the header menu? When I remove them from the control panel and save, they are still there.
In WP-Admin, go to POSTS. All the news are managed from there.
If you have additional question, please open a support ticket at http://it.ticksy.com and we will assist you
Great theme – just a couple of cosmetic questions: the text for the homepage block titles doesn’t align with the blocks either side of it (I notice this is the case in your demo as well) – any idea how to solve this – do I need to select a specific font for Header 1 or something?
Also, can you change the font of the twitter feed? It looks a bit budget as it is, and is different to the rest of the site. Also it is not centred top to bottom within the module, so again doesn’t look great!
I don’t exactly understand the issue you are referring. Would it be possible to explain it via a screencapture ? Please open a support ticket at http://it.ticksy.com and we will assist you.
pre purchase question
does theme come with a tutorial video?
can you sell on it? woo commerce ready?
There is not tutorial video yet. However, I think we offer a solid and fast customer services and help people often in less than 4 hours depending of the work load.
We also have a a Frequently asked question forum running at http://it.ticksy.com/faqs/#category_4298
The theme is not woocommerce ready yet.
Thank you very much,
great thank you for fast reply! is there any text to help guide me to install the theme? i have a theme already installed and will replace it with this one..i’ve never done that and dont know where to start with that so might need to read on that..
also are you releasing an update tomorrow?
Here’s a quick step to install our theme: http://it.ticksy.com/faq/1365
Basically, you just have to install the theme as you installed your previous theme, and then, activate Ironband from Appearances>Theme.

thank you! ready to purchase is there an update coming today? integration with sound cloud??!!
So far I’m really enjoying the functionality of the theme…excited for the Bandcamp/Soundcloud integration. One major question I have is how do I set a date for the gigs!? I can’t seem to see it anywhere! Thanks.
Nevermind…I see you just have to schedule it for a later date. Excited to see the next updates!
When will you be uploading the new updated version?
And what extra features will it have please?
Really love the look of the website, very clean.
Also I was wondering if it is possible to have 2 separate pages, with totally different events on each page.
Basically I run weekly dance classes and big dance events. and would like to use your theme.
The features you have on this theme are great, but I would also like a page showing my weekly dance classes. Can you suggest anything I can do on your theme for this to work?
I run 8 weekly classes throughout the week in different areas.
At the moment I just use a normal page and have the classes just down as text. Is there a better way on your site that I could do it?
We will push the release tomorrow. Then it will be in the hands of the reviewers team at ThemeForest to approve it. We can’t wait to finally have it available for everybody.
The main feature in this update is the possibilities to use widgets. We have also built 5 custom widgets. This update will allow you to organize and manage the homepage blocks as you want (with the addition to decide yourself if the widget should take 1 column/full width, or 2 columns. It will be up to you). Including the possibility to use third parties plugins/widgets such as soundcloud to display on the homepage (or in a sidebar or footer)by exemple.
For the possibility to have 2 separate pages to manage independently different events, it’s not possible.
To display your class schedule you have 2 choices. Either you use the gig template (once again, if you choose to use it, you would be use the schedule for another type of events), or make a custom page and manage manually, in your own way, your class schedule. You should take a look at http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-composer-for-wordpress/242431 It’s a plugin that allow you to visually build a custom page easily. Make sure it fits your need before buying.
Thanks for your interest.
okay thank you very much for all that
I really look forward to seeing the new update. I will be waiting patiently
Thanks for letting me know
Few more questions:
- Is it possible when uploading videos, to have some of the videos only be able to be viewed if someone registers to the website?
I will be uploading instructional dance videos – and will have a few videos so people can see, and then a load more videos for only my students to see once they have registered to my wordpress website.
- on the gigs page, each event when you click on it drops down – is it possible to get it to go to a separate page instead?
- staying with the gigs page: is it possible to show PAST EVENTS, on a separate page, or at the bottom of the gigs page?
- there is text in the top right of the header. is it possible to put an image there to advertise something?
- latest tweets on homepage – is this possible to show more than 1 tweet?
- do you have a testimonials part on your theme, or can you suggest a plugin that would go well with your theme?
- One last thing, I know a few others have asked, but when will you be looking to integrate woo-commerce into your theme, or is this not in the plans at all?
Sorry for all the questions. But I really love you theme. How clean and how great it looks in mobile.
But I am not a singer/band – I teach dance classes, and would like to customise the site for my needs. Which I think will be very easy to do, from what I can see
To be honest, I don’t know if our theme is the best theme suitable for your needs. You have a lot of custom things you want and you know exactly what you want. That said, I would suggest that you start from a multipurpose theme and hire a developper to develop custom module instead of modifying a specific theme. I think you would save a lot of time if you use a multipurpose theme. IronBand is versatile, but there is some point you want such as : registered members, have individual pages for gigs, have advertising in the top right header, show multiple tweet (this can be done using a free plugin to replace our custom tweet widget in IronBand though), testimonials, woo-commerce integration which can be done with IronBand but will certainly needs strong PHP/CSS skills.
Thank you very much for your advice. I shall keep having a look around then to see if there is anything else that will better suit my needs
Again thank you very much
I have 3 people ready to buy. Can you let me know as soon as the widget ready version is released?
We have to repush the date for tomorrow. Then it will be in the hands of the reviewers team at ThemeForest to approve it. We can’t wait to finally have it available for everybody.
Thanks for your patience.
Is it possible to hide or disable the bottom/footer menu?
No it’s not possible with theme option. You can remove the mailing list which take a big part in the footer, but you cant hide completely the bottom footer.
Patiently waiting the new drop! What’s the ETA?
AWESOME! CAN’T WAIT! TELL ENVATO TO RUSH THIS!
Any update on the new theme update??
We have to repush the date for tomorrow. Then it will be in the hand of the reviewers at ThemeForest to approve the theme. We can’t wait to finally have it available for everybody.
ok thanks! do they approve fast!?? excited to purchase when update is out!
It depends of their work load. For this kind of update, it can takes around 24-48hours..but i dont have any control. Sometime it takes 6-7hours, but i’ve seen another time up to 2-3 days.
ok thank you.. really what i need is to put the sound cloud player instead of the iron player. can this template let me do that? or at least show all songs of the album instead of just one song that you have to click through? the band just needs a simple player 9sound cloud if they can) but that shows all songs in album and lets you click to buy right there on first page if you want…possible?
here’s a beta version of the widget ready..is that something you want ? http://max.irontemplates.com/
yes! i want to embed the whole play list though not just one song in sound cloud..possible? im sure it is! ?? so on first page sound cloud player shows whole album
yes important to show entire album on home page..its confusing to have to press the next button for next song…these guys have a single out so if the player only shows that one song noone will know to hit next.
Hello Dark, if you find a soundcloud plugin that allow you that, sure Ironband will support it. have you ever see a soundcloud player do what you need ? If yes, send me a exemple and I will figure out and assist you if this can be possible.
However, here’s an exemple i’ve setup for you to show you the possibilitie to have soundcloud showing more than one song: http://max.irontemplates.com/
this is perfect yes!
only issue is it seems to be acting buggie..sound cloud doesnt load right away i have to keep refreshing..very very slow on mobile, and videos take long to load and play..slow to load or get “cant load now” message for music player…maybe this is just the sample you sent?
and songs wont play on the right player…mobile very buggie
Yeah, you were right. The problem is that i’ve set up 5 soundcloud player on the same page. SoundCloud player takes a lot of ressources.
test it again, the site works great now with only 1 soundcloud player.
Unfortunately I still have a problem
always get in the

My client wants to integrate an Instgram account, so I’m just curious if the new version will support Instagram widgets. Thanks!
May not matter, as the Instagram widget is apparently a mess right now, but I guess it’s still good to know if it’ll work on this template. Thanks again!
The new version which will comes pretty pretty soon will allow you to use widgets. That mean if you find a Instagram Widgets available either on codecanyon or the wordpress repository, you will likely be able to use in into the homepage (or footer), or any widget zone you will create. It’s pretty simple.
By exemple, here’s a beta version. I integrated an instagram feed on the homepage in 2 minutes: http://max.irontemplates.com/
I’ve used Instagram Picture by Tobias Bohn.
Awesome, thanks so much!
You rock, as always!
I’ve not had time to setup documentation how to use the widget, but it’s pretty straight-forward. Will try to update the documentation tomorrow.
Can we see screenshots or a working demo of what the homepage could look like with deprecated blocks? Also, when are you hoping to make the theme compatible with woocommerce? Am hoping to sell merchandising through the site.
here’s a homepage demo i’ve setted up using the widgets. http://max.irontemplates.com/
I don’t know if this answer to your needs.Otherwise, just ask me what you want
I don’t have ETA yet on when IronBand will be 100% fully woo-commerce compatible.
