Hey velesweb,

Hey gbarnett01,

No problem, thanks for your comments and purchase. Let me know if I can help you with anything further.

I am looking for a blog theme and this theme is the best on the market. I have looked through 20 pages and returned to Kite. Please answer some pre-sale questions: 1) What fonts are used for headers, menu, etc? My blog will be in Russian, can I replace fonts for all elements if your font doesn’t support cyrillic charset? 2) Main page. I see several blocks like featured articles and blog posts. Can I rearrange elements on the main page, can I add more elements? 3) Are you planning to add more elements and features to this theme? Like slider of featured articles, post types, galleries within posts, etc… 4) Does this theme come with demo content like on your web-site? Thank you!

Hey sagatovumid,

Thanks for your comments!

1. The default font doesn’t support extended character sets, however the theme options includes a simple drop down selection of over 600 Google Fonts, many of these fonts included extended character support.

2. The frontpage is static, and controlled by variables within the theme options and post settings. You can use third-party plugins to alter its layout, however we cant provide support for these.

3. We’re always looking to improve the feature set of Kite, if you have any further suggestions let us know.

4. Yep, we can provide the demo file on request. For the demo import file email support@ecko.me.

Hi. Do you have a guide that describes how to get the blog to look like your demo?

EckoThemes

Hey ezimerman,

Thanks for your purchase!

Send me an email too support@ecko.me and I’ll send across the demo import files.

First of all I’d like to say you made a great theme – it looks stunning and very different from the other magazine themes. I’m thinking of using this theme for my current blog, but since it already has some content (over 350 posts) formatted for another theme I was wondering how well integrating would go. I have some questions I hope you can answer:

  1. My posts are picture heavy, and all the images are currently 600×400 or 660×440. How will the posts display these images? Is there a script to enlarge them to fit to the column width or do I have to update them manually?
  2. Is there a ‘related posts’-widget for under the post, or only in the sidebar like in the demo?
  3. The archive part on the homepage shows both regular and featured posts. How does this work when you don’t have any featured posts? Or three in a row?
  4. What is the max height for the site logo?

Thank you!

Hey Janite,

Thanks for your comments.

1. Kite includes a plugin which will resize all your current images into the (smaller) correct sizes. Post banner images, if used, will upscale smaller images.

2. There is a custom related post widget for the sidebar, but not for below the post.

3. If you don’t have featured posts the featured banners wont show, and you’ll be left with the standard column posts. Check out the category pages as an example.

4. The recommend maximum size for the logo is 35px.

Let me know if you have any further questions. The best way contact me is via email (support@ecko.me).

Thanks for your quick reply! If I have more questions I’ll let you know :)

Hello. Do you know how I can get the site to use www.site.com, and redirect non-www pages to www ? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

EckoThemes

Hey ezimerman,

This is related to your web server configuration, and is unfortunately something I cannot assist with. I would recommend submitting a ticket with your hosting provider for assistance, or have a search for some tutorials online.

I haven’t heard from you. I also sent you 2 emails asking for your help but I got no reply! Why is this happening?

Can you reply to my emails and question here?

EckoThemes

Hey mkobinsk,

Apologies for the delay, you should receive a reply to your email shortly.

Trying to remove meta from posts. Have them turned off in customize theme but they are still there. Please advise.

EckoThemes

Hey Ambrose1095,

Send an email to support@ecko.me and I’ll send over some Custom CSS you can use.

I have emailed you 9 times for support on this theme. It looks nothing like the example. I have several questions regarding getting it set up. I have spent days trying to figure out how to do this. I am very frustrated and want to get a refund and purchase a theme with real support. I have had help from a professional blogger but he can only get me so far without knowing your theme, he said that I need help from the theme’s author. Please contact me asap.

Hey messerchristie,

Sorry for the delay, we aim to answer all support tickets within 24 hours, however were unable to do so this time. I’ve now sent you a response to your queries.

The problems you are having are due to misconfiguration of Kite, or settings from a past theme having effect on the content. As recommended in my email, I would backup your content and reinstall WordPress.

Hi I sent you an e-mail, but I have no response from you, so I’m writing here

Pre-purchase question.

Any thought’s on implementing a review system?

Hey tothelab,

Its going to be considered for an update, but there is no set date currently.

Hi. Is it safe to update Wordpress to 4.0 with theme installed? No issues?

EckoThemes

Hey ezimerman,

The demo is currently running version 4.0 and I encountered no problems. If you find any bugs after the update please let me know via the support email (support@ecko.me).

Hi. For some reason my LinkedIn link comes out messed up. For some reason, it prepends my domain name to my linkedin URL – ericzimerman.com

Do you have a fix for this? Thanks

EckoThemes

Hey ezimerman,

Ensure you have started the URL with ‘http://'. If you’re still having issues with this please send an email to support@ecko.me, including a link to your blog.

Default-user

That fixed it, thanks!

Hello EckoThemes,

How difficult is it to replace the comment section with a Disqus alternative? When you do replace it, do those changes propagate the full theme, or does it take a significant amount of reworking?

Thanks and keep up the great work!

-Ryan

EckoThemes

Hey Ryan,

Thanks for your comments.

You can easily modify the theme to use Disqus comments by replacing the entire contents of the ‘comments.php’ file with your Disqus embed code.

If you decide to purchase, and have any issues with the above let me know via our support email (support@ecko.me).

Default-user

Seems simple enough. Thanks for the quick response.

hi,

nice theme… question.. do you use vidual compser or something like this to personnalized the page ?

thank you

EckoThemes

Hey microb14,

Thanks for your comments.

The theme does not come included with Visual Composer, but we have had customers of Kite using the plugin with success. We cant however guarantee compatibility with third-party plugins.

I’m assuming this isn’t currently supported, but can you give me an idea of how much customization would be required to use the top “featured” post area on the home page for a static message and image?

EckoThemes

Hey Mike,

You could ensure that you only have one post featured (so it stays in the top position), and then use the customization options to remove the post meta data.

Does it have WPML support?
