I am thinking of purchasing and have a couple of questions -

1 – This theme is for a redesign of a site which already has heavy content. I’ve discovered that the new page builders make it very difficult to import content and format by just using short codes. You basically have to rebuild every page with the page builder. Is there a content module in this theme’s page builder that pulls in the content from the main editor including any html markup?

Furthermore, do the page builder modules support HTML? I have to be able to create internal / external links throughout most of my client’s sites for SEO. I know some page builders support it, some do not.

2 – Almost all of my clients sites have multiple sidebars. I’ve discovered some new theme’s page builders and sliders don’t play nicely with sidebar page templates. Does this theme have unlimited sidebars and do all layouts and page builder elements / sliders function seamlessly with sidebar page templates?

furthermore, can the home page be setup with sidebars enabled?

3 – I’m glad to see you have a forum, but not seeing any answers to common questions here on theme forest makes it harder to determine if the theme will suit my needs. I find these comment sections very helpful in determining how fast a developer is in replying / and or how many or few issues people are having. You seem to really be on top of it, but don’t be afraid to answer some support questions right here! It makes a good impression on potential buyers. I look forward to hearing back and hopefully working with this theme!

Kind Regards, Scott

Hi,

Thank you for the interest in Kallyas.

Please find my answers bellow :

1. Indeed, the theme has a page builder. If you already have content that relies on theme specific shortcodes, you will have to rebuild that content using the page builder elements. Regarding HTML, there is a page builder element that lets you put the content and sidebar of the page anywhere you want in relation with the rest of the page builder.Also , the “Text box” page builder element and almost all of the page builder elements support HTML content.

2. This theme has unlimited sidebars features. Also , regarding the page builder elements, they work like this :

if you have content and a sidebar, by default , this will appear above the page builder elements and bellow the slider and that red area you see in the demo. For a more complex layout, i have added 2 elements :

a. Content and sidebar : This will let you move the page content and the sidebar anywhere you want in relation with the rest of the page builder elements

b. Sidebar : This element let’s you display a sidebar as a page builder element.

3. The reason for the fact that i prefer a support forum is because on the support forum , the clients can search for questions or solutions to various customizations requests.

Thank you again for the interest in Kallyas, Stefan

i just noticed there are nearly 4k purchases and 82 pages of comments. you can disregard my 3rd point ;)

Hi,

no problem, i’ve responded to all :) with a little delay as i was off the city for several days.

@hinerfeld I bought this theme and then got refund from Envato. There were many reasons for it and one of them that the theme do not support placing the page buider content on the pages with sidebars. If you’ll try to do it the pagebuilder content will begins exact at the bottom of the sidebar – effect in the content area there is a big lack of nothing. This problem is discussed on support forum from the initial release of the theme and there are still no solution for it.
From my point of view this theme is great for presentation sites, but not for the serious projects. I’ll repeat – this is only my point of view.

Hi Mishka,

I am sorry you had to do this. Indeed, i still haven’t found a solution to satisfy the clients who find this a limitation , however, i am still working on this.

Hi, I tried to login to the supportforum but it keeps throwing me out. There is a problem with the WPML language switcher when using it on touch devices – when you choose a language from the list you will actually click on the other menu under it, so it will not change language, but instead it will open the item from the menu under it. I have tried it on tablets and have yet not succeded to change language. I hope for a rapid answer since the site is now live. But the theme is really great. Regards, Jakob

Hi,

Thank you for choosing Kallyas. Can you please try to use our support forum again ? unfortunately, without seeing the actuall issue it is hard for me to provide help. Also , can you try the 2 different menu layouts for the smaller screens ?

Best regards, Stefan

@mishka48 THANK YOU! I don’t understand where developers are going with the page builder. It makes it such a hassel to redevelop a site with existing content. Yes you can import the content from the previous site, but you have to completely rebuild every page! And this sidebar issue is driving me crazy. Sidebars and widgets are important! Page builders are sort of killing me right now. Thanks again for the heads up. I’ll probably move on unless the developer has some insight????

hogash

Hi,

I’ve just responded to your initial questions. Regarding the page builders, well , this is the fastest way for a client to build it’s site from scratch.

Even if the theme is created with shortcodes, the clients will have to rebuilt their content and implement that theme specific shortcodes instead of the ones used in the theme so i do not see why a page builder would be a bad solution in comparition with using shortcodes.

Regarding the sidebar, well , this is somehow a limitation of the design . By enabling the sidebar along side with the page builder elements, additional resources would be needed to calculate the exact dimensions for the entire content.

Hi,

When viewed on mobile, the header background colour becomes grey unless you set an image or colour. Is there a way to keep in semi-transparent like when viewed on desktop?

Thanks!

hogash

Hi,

Thank you for choosing Kallyas. Can you please open a new thread on our support forum about this? By default, on smaller screens, the slider/header area is placed beneath the header and this creates a grey effect.

Another thing: Your Mailchimp widget sometimes does not work… it just shows the loading gif forever when the “Join us” button is clicked.

And yes, I already specified the Mailchimp API key in the Kallysas option as well as a target subscriber list.

Can you please help?

Thanks!

hogash

Hi,

Please open a new thread on our support forum about this. The theme relies on the mailchimp api, and from time to time , their api may not respond in time.

Your support site is down so I will ask here. It should only be a simple question. How do you make the sliders automatic and change the trasition speed? I have looked everywhere and read the help file also.

hogash

Hi,

This will depend on what slider are you using as some sliders have this options and some don’t. The support forum is up now so please open a new thread there or search for your answer using the search feature :

Sorry, but I am not understanding the Woocommerce. Do I need to install any plugin to add links to products, etc? In the ADMIN just show link to administrate sidebars.

Hi,

Thank you for choosing kallyas, Indeed, if you want to create the shop features, you will need to install the WooCommerce plugin which is free. For any theme related questions, please use our support forum :

UPDATE: I finally found the tutorial videos but I accidentally found it, they are apparently very shy with showing it which I don’t think is smart.

I bought this theme and seems very nice but a thing to others out there…there is no “How to” page that can show you common things and how to do it, for example I have no idea how to make a woocommerce product and put it as a post or whatever. They should have these small mini tutorials which they do not, nor do they have a page with a written explanation or help about anything.

The support is kind of bad since they for unknown reason ignore some people (including me) while answering very thorough and nice to others which seems kind of strange. If they don’t know at least they could write and say they don’t know or what it might be so at least I feel they respond but they haven’t. Also you can’t write a support ticket or contact the moderators in any way which I understand because people probably would do that rather than post in the forum all the time but when these things happen that they ignore you as it seems and don’t have any tutorials or FAQs, it would be nice to have somewhere to write with feedback..

...and as we can see here, not too busy with answering questions here either.

hogash

Language switcher header mother tong error I had setup 3 languages. PT, ES and US. The wordpress default lang is PT. The root language is PT,ES goes to \es and US goes to \us.

Tha main question is when I start with PT language, I cannot translate the head of the switcher to Portuguese, it stays “LANGUAGES”. But in the other languages is ok, “IDIOMAS” to ES and “LANGUAGES” to US.

In the Kalyas functions.php, we have the “WPML language switcher” section code, with, echo ‘

  • ’.__(“LANGUAGES”,THEMENAME).’’;

    I do not know, what shall I do.Please help me. Thanks.

    With the “SUPPORT” , the link to the Hidden Panel Sidebar, happens the same.

    WE CANNOT MAKE TRANSLATION OF THIS STRINGS (in the functions.php), IF YOU PUT OTHER LANGUAGE DIFFERENT FROM ENGLISH IN YOUR WEBSITE AS THE MOTHER TONG .

    So, what we can do,to change this strings???????

  • hogash

    Hi,

    These string should be present in the .po,.mo files specific for each language. Can you please open a new thread on our support forum and provide us a link to your site that we can check ?

    Hi Stefan,

    I have these errors in wordpress, on the homepage and products page, no way to figure out why… I presume it is because of the 2.3 update, but I can’t revert to 2.2 in order to verify that…

    By the way I think it’d be a good idea to make the updates’ archives available for download for your verified buyers, on your support forum, for cases like these… :)

    I’ve deactivated all the plugins to no avail…

    “Notice: Undefined index: 1 in /home/innerget/public_html/wp-content/themes/kallyas/admin/framework/function-vt-resize.php on line 45

    Notice: getimagesize() [function.getimagesize]: Read error! in /home/innerget/public_html/wp-content/themes/kallyas/admin/framework/function-vt-resize.php on line 50

    Notice: Undefined index: extension in /home/innerget/public_html/wp-content/themes/kallyas/admin/framework/function-vt-resize.php on line 63”

    the site is www.innergetiq.com

    Am I doing smtng wrong, or is it related to the theme?

    Thanks and regards, Lucian
