Good luck!

webmandesign

Thanks very much buddy! Your help was appreciated very much last time :)

INSANE . AMAZING JOB !!!!!!!!!!!

Where can we see the “Client Access” functionality?

WOW .

webmandesign

:) Cool comment ;)

I admit, I didn’t integrate it in the demo… Will update the demo website today also with preview of theme skins.

Thanks.

webmandesign

Hi CrucialCounty,

You can preview Client Access functionality in http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/login-page/

Is it possible to have featured images on the single post blog pages that have an open height? Like if I upload a big image it will appear with the width you are using now but the height will be proportional.

webmandesign

Hi kemrich,

Yes, this is set by default. Post featured images are being cropped only in post list (on blog page).

In addition, you have an option to disable featured image in single post view (this can be set per post basis) and so just display images that are inserted directly in the post content.

Thanks,

Oliver

Very very very nice theme. I love the design and the full featuredness of it! I am also very interested in the client access part of the website. This is exactly what we are looking for!

webmandesign

Hi rd6,

Glad you like the theme. Please check this link to preview Client Access area functionality: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/login-page/

congrats for the impressive theme!

please show us more in your demo about :

1. skins

2. visual editor (what do you mean “when using styles?”) – is it drag n drop visual editor ?

3. any font use

4. shortcodes & their parameters

5. do you plan to integrate “animation” and scrolling in portfolio/blog thumbs & directly show video, gallery sliders etc in loop thumbs ? (in page templates and shortcodes)

6. do you plan more layout options for portfolios/blogs ? (more columns & filters for blogs, masonry etc.)?

7. will you offer theme version notification & update? (so important when having many websites…)

8. do you use font or image icons ?

ps. i am now studying your documentation to figure out by myself ;-) http://www.webmandesign.eu/manual/jazzmaster/

thx!

webmandesign

Hi Tasoskouk,

Thanks, glad you like the theme ;)

As requested:
  1. Please check this page for theme skins preview: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/skins/
  2. I’m working on new videos, but please have a look at this one from my previous theme (although the functionality of Shortcode Generator was improved, so the video is a bit outdated) – just as a preview: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jaguar/styles-shortcodes/visual-editor-enhancements/ . As you can see, it is not drag and drop page builder, it’s basically about using and improving default functionality of the visual editor.
  3. You can include custom fonts just by including additional stylesheet and editing theme font stacks – basically all the instructions provided by Google WebFonts :) Please check this screenshot for font setting theme option page: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/files/2012/10/theme-options-fonts.png
  4. To keep the User Manual a “normal” size, and also to make much easier and accessible help, all the documentation regarding shortcodes is integrated directly into WordPress contextual help. Surely, you can use Shortcode Generator to insert shortcodes into visual editor.
  5. Sorry, I don’t quite understand what you mean. There is already a filterable portfolio list displayed in animation and also blog page displays video, gallery and/or audio directly in place of featuerd image in posts list. Could you explain in more details what you have on your mind here?
  6. I don’t think it is necessary to include more layouts for portfolio display as it is already pretty flexible. If you don’t need to display a portfolio description, it can be easily hidden using simple CSS . New additional blog layouts are planned for version 1.1 update.
  7. Update notification is already included in the theme. It will display a notification in admin top bar and on additional Dashboard page. But you have to be logged in as administrator, of course.
  8. I use font icons. There is much more flexibility with those. But for the icon boxes (can be seen also on demo website homepage) you have to use images. There are 6 different icon packs distributed with this theme (inside the download package) – altogether more than 4000 icons…

Hope I’ve answered your questions and you like the user manual too :)

Regards,

Oliver

tasoskouk

so much thx for your detailed & rapid response !!!

1. your skinning seems so powerful !

2. your visual editor is great – next version u might give us an awesome drag n drop builder ;-)

3. regarding fonts : does this mean we can upload our own ttf/otf font and use it with @fontface syntax ? (we need more fonts for non-english sites…) – and i hope we can load specific charsets… greek, cyrilic etc.

4. your documentation & help is simply awesome!

5. i would love to have filtering + scrolling + video/gallery direct thumbs in your portfolio/blog shortcodes eg. in your homepage demos i miss these features… – in general that should be standard in all your loop shortcodes (posts, portfolios, testimonials, logos etc.)

6. i would love to have more options for blog posts loop (filters, masonry, 2-3 columns, ...) – several ideas here…

7. it would be great to have not just notif but actual update from admin panel when a new theme version comes

9. will you provide a support forum? (much better for various reasons, u know)

10. please check compatibility with important plugins eg. wpml/qtranslate, woocommerce

i know i am asking for …tooooo much but it seems you can really deliver :-)

thx & congrats again !!!

webmandesign

Hi there,

Here we go:

2) This is really not planned for this theme. Maybe some future theme…

3) That was the exact problem I’ve had with the fonts usually integrated in themes. You couldn’t select a wider character set. That’s why I came up with this solution and yes, you could upload and use your own ttf/otf fonts, although this would require just a little more effort to apply.

5) I actually haven’t seen filtered blog posts out there on the web. I think I know what you mean by “scrolling”. Will consider to add it to the theme. You can enable filter on portfolio shortcode. Just set a “filter=1” parameter for Projects shortcode like so:
[projects align="" category="" columns="5" count="10" filter="1" order="new"][/projects]

6) Will add some in the update.

7) This wouldn’t be easy implementation, but will have a look at some solution.

9) Working on the forum support. Please use the http://www.webmandesign.eu/support/ meanwhile

10) QTranslate should work. Will check the others.

Regards,

Oliver

Great work buddy. Deserves massive amount of sales :)

webmandesign

:):) I pray for that ;) Thanks

Really nice work….Buying now, and excited to put it to use.

webmandesign

Thanks. Enjoy the theme. In case of any questions, feel free to ask :)

bmacstudio

Okay, having used it for a bit….I am in love. You saved me on a project with the exact theme at the right time. BRILLIANT !

webmandesign

Thanks! ;)

I tried the client demo, excellent :)

The demo page itself has a small problem. On my iPad 3 under safari there is an overlap of the login box with the page text. The light grey box covers about 1. cm of the main text.

webmandesign

Hi, thanks for spotting the issue. Should be fixed by now. Will get into first theme update (which I’m working on already).

xepono Purchased

WOW !!! WOW !!! WOW !!!

Fantastic work! I have purchased immediatley, it´s that what I need at the moment

Thanks! And best luck with sales :-)

webmandesign

Glad you like JazzMaster. Thanks! :)

Hi, WONDERFUL Design ! Sure your sales will go up and up next days !

I found 3 bugs before buying: 1. I can´t go to TOP browsing the site using an iPhone 4, and clicking on the go to top icon at the bottom of the site, 2. I can´t see the content of the TOUR tabs (they are at the OUR PROCESS page… and on the iphone the text of the second and third tabs never appear), 3. the dropdown example menu on the very TOP (preheader) doesn´t work on the responsive iphone version.

(I also found that the login page is not totally coded yet, as I make a mistake on user-pass, I was sent to NORMAL wp-login page instead of keeping me on the site, AND If I want to recover my password, the same)

webmandesign

Hi Argos,

Thanks for spotting these bugs.
  1. Don’t have iPhone, but will try to test it somehow and repair it – will be included in the first theme update.
  2. Weird. Will do my best to make it work.
  3. Yes, this is intentional. Dropdown is not displayed on screens narrower than 768px. That’s why you should always provide a link on the parent menu item. This is more of a feature preview what can be done with the theme. Sorry for that, but the top bar dropdown menus are hidden on mobile screens.

I am using the standard login functionality of WordPress, so this is actually correct behavior and can not be changed. The login page was created just to provide a login description and credentials (I used the [login] shortcode to display the form but you should really direct your clients to the standard – and branded – WordPress login screen probably). You can see branded version of login screen (which I forgot to set during demo website creation) at http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/admin .

Please note, that as I am using WordPress multisite functionality for demo websites of my themes, you will always be redirected to general WP login screen when requesting a lost password, but this “lost password form” will be styled properly on your website when using JazzMaster.

Regards,

Oliver

Every now and then comes a great theme, recently I think we had metro, and now this one is even better, this should get at least 1000 sales.

webmandesign

Thanks buddy ;)

Hi, can I use this theme with: Visual Composer for easier managing the content inside pages and posts ? This is the plugin: http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-composer-for-wordpress/242431/ I have used it in other themes, and it is the best tool available to manage everything inside each page-post without using shortcodes (manually).

webmandesign

Hi Argos,

The theme wasn’t tested with this plugin, but you can try that.

However, there might be some stylings issues as the theme CSS classes might clash with plugin’s ones. If you find some discrepancies, just drop me a line via my support page and I will assist you to my best ability.

Oliver

1. Another thing it would be fine to be fixed on your next release, is that the latest menu item (right side), named FEATURES , it dropdowns to the right, so when you browse the site using an iPad 2 horizontally, you can´t read the content on that dropdown menu.

2. Besides that, could you please confirm me that we can create unlimited sidebars on your theme (so on each page we could select a different sidebar if necesary)? (I haven´t read about that on your features listed at your theme page on TF) Thanks in advance (AWESOME design.)

3. and FYI , at this page: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/login-page/ and also all the time you are logged in as client1 or client2, the MENU didn´t get sticky at the top, but just moves with the rest of the page. I hope you will be able to get the meny Sticky on the top all the time on all pages on your next release. as I love this theme.

4. One question: are you going to add a masonry layout for the BLOG as a new feature ?

webmandesign
  1. This is actually good point. Added it in to-do list for first theme update.
  2. Indeed, I forgot to mention it in features list (so many features in this them, you know ;) ). Yes, you can create unlimited amout of widget areas and you can set any of them as sidebar for each page, post, project and staff info page (when rich staff info enabled) separately.
  3. This is actually working as intended: you can set the header to stick to the top by default (globally) and then just toggle this behaviour per page basis. It means if there is a global sticky header, you can disable sticking on any page, and vice versa – if there is classic global header, you can stick it on some pages.
  4. Yes, this was requested by quite a few buyers, so, I guess this will be included :)

Oliver

Default-user

THanks, so, do you have an ETA for the Masonry Blog layout and the “ajax” scroll of projects (actually, every time I click on each arrow of the featured projects, the page is “refreshed” what I expect is that the projects below could scroll on its own row-space…)

Please let me know about version 1.1 so that I start using this amazing theme!

webmandesign

Hi there,

The version 1.1 was released with Masonry Blog included.

As for the carousel on project pages, this wasn’t meant so actually. The arrows just get you to the previous/next project in the category – that’s why the website refreshes, it changes content. I admit, I placed the arrows on a bit confusing place – will update that in next release. The section below project content displays related projects in random selection.

Hi, One thing you could help me with: the contact number in the header, how do I change it? Thanks, Kim

Hi Oliver,

Never mind I just found it.

Thanks

Kim

webmandesign

:) Just for others who would like to change that: you can set this text in Appearance > Theme Options > Layout > Header > “Right header area text”.

Hello there, nice work. Your probably aware but when viewing the login page in Chrome the actual login form overlaps the main page content.

Again nice work though.

webmandesign

This is issue with responsive styles. Already fixed on demo website, will be fixed in first theme update.

Thanks ;)

Hiya, thanks for reply, it was the demo site I have been looking at, the one on Themeforest, still does it for me even after clearing cache?

Also noted earlier that if I search for ‘Shout’ it really messes the results page up, oddly searching for anything else seems ok? Does this happen for you also? I don’t suppose it really matters as I wouldn’t expect anyone to search for that on my proposed site anyway..

Cheers

webmandesign

Please, refresh the site on your tablet/phone several times. It wasn’t working for me either, but after I refreshed the site for 4th time (in quick sequence), it was OK.

Thanks for spotting the bug. Actually it has nothing to do with “Shout” word but the first search result in the list – this “Landing page” has a slider set below the header and the search result page is picking up this setting… Will be repaired. And well, this matters too for me :)

Thanks,

Oliver

questions about using theme as a single-page or landing page site :

1. can sections be styled separately for each page in page options (fonts, colors, patterns etc.)

2. can we put links in menus to page sections ?

thx!

re-phrasing previous question…

questions about using theme as a single-page or landing page site :

1. can (shortcode) sections (in landing template) be styled separately for each page in page options (fonts, colors, patterns etc.)

2. can we put links in menus to page (shortcode) sections ?

thx!

webmandesign

Hi Tasoskouk,

[section class="CSS_CLASS_NAME"][/section] shortcode can only be used with “Sections” page template. This will not work with “Landing page” template. As you can see, there is a “class” parameter in the shortcode that will let you assign a custom CSS class on the section (this class will be used also as a section ID, but ID will be prepended with “section-” -> “section-CSS_CLASS_NAME” and you can then use this as an anchor for your menu links (see the Home / Heavily sectioned submenu)). With custom CSS class you can then apply your custom styles in Appearance > Theme Options > Design > Stylesheet > “Custom CSS ” textarea.

Regards,

Oliver

good day!

some notes/questions :

1. congrats for masonry blog layout in v1.1 !

2. check your alt home page… it looks broken to me + check “where to find us” footer widget text alignment ;-)

3. can we set height to fixed in sliders & loops ?

4. can we seperate sub-footer from footer, with different color/bg pattern or divider, so both will better readable & maybe more elegant ?

5. please check my previous questions regarding shortcode sections & landing pages

thx!

webmandesign

Hi,

  1. Thanks :)
  2. My terrible mistake in v1.1 update. Appologies to everyone! Already submited a fixed version into ThemeForest. Thanks very much for spotting this.
  3. Sliders adapt to size of images displayed in it. So you can control the height with uploaded image. Can you be more specific in setting the height to loops?
  4. Footer consist of 2 widget area rows (there is only one row displayed on demo website). These can be styled separately only with custom CSS code. However, you can style them together easily with design builder in theme admin panel. And I think you mean the “credits” area at the very bottom of the page. Yes, you can style this easily with design tools in admin panel (change background color, text color, links color, borders color, background image/pattern).
  5. Please review my answer to that comment

Oliver

tasoskouk

thx for everything!

3. same height is needed for slider images so that we do not try to “shoot” for always moving next / previous arrows and also the page is not going up & down all the time… (i think 99% of wp sliders out there work in fixed height, by probably resizing all images/videos to fit in same height)

6a. regarding sliders could you plz. show us all 4 sliders in your demo

6b. if we can put video/iframe inside sliders

6c. if any of the sliders is responsive

thx again!

webmandesign

Hi,

3. Well, I actually used static height in my previous theme. But from the experience of my customers I decided to keep flexible height for this theme. As really most of people prepare images specially for sliders. So they set their height and expect it to be visible in whole. Please prepare your images for sliders (keep the same height for images in one slides group) and no slider resizing will ocur. I myself have the same problem with resizable sliders like you do ;) but that’s the most suitable option for wide public to use – the slider height is your decision then (you can use different height images or the same height images) and I had to show it on the demo website somehow.

6a. Different sliders are integrated into different pages of demo website. Please check the “Sliders” submenu item of “Features” menu item. Besides this you can set the slider to match website content width or just spread accross full width of the browser window (note that this stretches/upscales images with some sliders so it is not desirable for all instances).

6b. Just one video can be set. It can not be placed in rotating slider.

6c. All of the sliders are responsive.

Regards,

Oliver

Hello webmandesign. Your theme is really fantastic! I have a question about the titles of individual posts: can the title to be without background colour as featured? I like a normal title post.

Thanks

webmandesign

Hi there,

You mean something like the title of “Standard post / Standard post format” in http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/standard-post/ for example? The style of this main heading section can be easily tweaked in “Design” section of theme admin panel.

However, if you need the title to be different only for single posts, this will require a bit of CSS , which I can help you with.

Regards,

Oliver
