Oliver hi,

i am very fond of your work, support & attitude and if you “promise” to support my requests then i’ ll buy it for my next project

so what i ask for is :

1. any kind of a reliable theme-auto update system (with wp envato kit or any other way) – i cannot bear with manual theme update each time something changes

2. your support to use visual composer (or aqua builder, ether content buider or other good builder) to build complex pages layout & then insert your shortcodes inside (i “just” need v. composer to visualize columns & layout and then use your theme’ s shortcodes inside, so functionality & styling will be yours) – this will make everything much more readable & flexible… but i need your assurance that it really works

so, if you can support these requests soon, then your great theme will be even more valuable, it will sell more, i’ ll buy it and everyone will be happier :-)

Hi Tasos,

I’m already working on next theme update and it will bring some major stuff. Hoping to submit it tommorow at most.

It will integrate Envato WordPress Toolkit and support WooCommerce.

As for visual composers, I’ve played with several ones already. Both plugins and integrated solutions in other themes. None of them is good enough for me to integrate with the theme (some kind of combination of all of them would be great ;) ). I offer simple Shortcode Generator and even a direct styles inside native WordPress visual editor that creates direct HTML, so you actually can see what you are creating. You can get an idea from the video of my first theme how I work with content (although this had been updated since) and read something about it in theme’s user manual. I already have a plan to make it even better, but this is not a thing of near future.

Thanks again for the interest and suggestions.

Regards,

Oliver

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for your answers!

Envato WP kit & woocommerce are very welcome updates!

I hope you put energy in the styles/shortcodes features… for now it is too weak & complicated to use and most premium themes already offer good page builders for posts & pages

For sure none of my clients could use styles or shortcodes as they are now :-(

Maybe first if we could use styles for columns and then put shortcodes inside… that would be a start… but is that possible?

I believe you could find a good solution for a visual builder and that would advance your theme to the highest level

Thanks for your support & efforts

Regards, Tasos

webmandesign

Hi Tasos,

Creating columns with styles and putting shortcodes inside is perfectly possible already now.

The biggest issue I have with vast majority of content composers is that they create kind of “side content” – the content is not inserted directly into default content area of the page/post. However, this is fine if you use a plugin as you can keep it installed even after changing the theme in the future. But with such composer integrated directly into a theme you will “loose” the content (it will still be present in database, it will just not display on the website) when switching a theme.

I’m trying to make the least impact for the users in this manner – trying not to lock them to my themes only (as that is WordPress philosophy, although maybe not very business-wise ;) ) – surely there would be issue with custom post types curently and my custom shortcodes, but I’m going to release those as plugins in the future for my customers (and maybe publicly – who knows ;) ).

I will keep searching for the best composer plugin and when I find one, all my themes will be updated to support it for sure!

And also not all top seller premium themes offer such composers and they are “living their happy lives” :) But surely I can see the benefits of that.

Oliver

I want to affirm what a mindblowing theme this is. It brings smart functionality and ease of use which help turn Wordpress into a powerful CMS. It has one of the most advanced skinning capabilities I’ve ever seen allowing styling every panel on the page. It includes intelligent extras such as inbuilt file compression, wordpress security tweaks and google map styling and the support is excellent. I want to thank Oliver for all his hard work towards creating the ultimate theme. :)

webmandesign

Hi Soulnecta,

Thank you very much for your words. I’m really glad you like the theme.

Can I use your words as testimonial for the theme on theme presentation page? :)

Yes, of course. I have a list of suggestions which I’m posting to the forum.

I appreciate your philosophy of keeping content flexible to minimise the pain of changing themes in the future and using the shortcodes as plugins would be even better :)

Tasos – in my opinion the great features of this theme outweigh any small ease of use benefit which comes with a visual composer.

Thank you :)

Hi Webman,

Awesome theme, really! it looks great. soo many options. exactly what I need: photos, video, and Mp3’s. nice!

Some Easy noob questions for you-

1 – Can the buttons be made square, rather the slightly rounded corners? U know, something more METRO.

2 – I’m assuming each page can have a different colour? i.e. home page is one colour, blog is a different colour etc.

yes yes, I know…they are noob questions. forgive me. ;) .

Oh, and not sure if this bug is picked but up on some pages, the black bar at the top which has the page title and the white icon that zooms in and out – it makes the screen flicker every time the mouse hovers over it and the icon zooms in/out. example is the Blog page.

thanks again. Shamz

PS – I got my finger on that trigger….ready to purchase!

webmandesign

Hi there,

Thank you, I’m glad you like the theme! :)

  1. Yes, this can be done with simple CSS that I can help with on http://support.webmandesign.eu
  2. Sure, if you set up the page (or global website layout) to be displayed in boxed layout. Something like this: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/lespaul/homepage/homepage-version-3/ and http://themes.webmandesign.eu/lespaul/homepage/homepage-version-5/

No noob questions here – you don’t know the theme yet, so I’m here to answer everything :)

About the bug it seems to be an issue with your browser handling that CSS3 animation. What browser are you on and what operating system do you use? BTW, you can disable this animation if it causes trouble for you. CSS3 animations are still pretty new stuff and they are not being rendered 100% the same on each browser…

Regards,

Oliver

PS: Does my answer made you pull the trigger? ;)

Default-user

Hi Webman,

Thanks for the reply. looking good.

1.Yes, I would like help with the square buttons. (thanx)

last question, can the Mp3/audio posts be hosted on the website? or does it have to be on soundcloud?

looking forward to tweaking this to my needs. Shamz

webmandesign

Hi Shamz,

Sorry, as currently WordPress supports only SoundCloud audio and the theme doesn’t include audio player natively, you will have to use SoundCloud or a plugin.

You can try to install an audio player plugin and insert your audio with shortcode for example.

Regards,

Oliver

Default-user

Hi Oliver,

I’m confused, your other theme Jazzmaster has ‘self hosted audio and video support’ ???

If I can have the audio blog posts as a self hosted file, consider me another buyer. ;)

thanks for the support. Shamz

webmandesign

Hi Shamz,

Yes, JazzMaster has integrated audio player. But this seems to be a bit confusing task for users (who want to play audio on their websites) as you have to set up several different audio formats (mp3 and ogg) to make the player work accross all the major browsers.

This has proven to be a bit “overwhelming” and as WordPress started to support SoundCloud natively since version 3.5, I decided not to include the audio player in my themes any more.

Anyhow, if you really need audio player there is a very cool plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/audio-player/

You can also check this: http://www.webhostingbillboard.com/wordpress-plugins/09-best-wordpress-plugins-for-audio/

As you can see, no need for me to reinvent the wheel… This feature will not be added to this theme (nor to my future themes).

Thanks for understanding.

Oliver

WooCommerce is a bigger beast than I thought it would be. I’m doing my best currently to make it on time and submit the update today, but it is very well possible that I will have to push the new theme update release date plus one day, sorry.

Hello.

Fantastic theme.

I have that flickering menu too on firefox latest version win7×64.

Now I want to ask some questions.

1. Can we switch off CSS hover effects on main menu?

2. Is it possible to switch off completly Google Fonts and have them in server?

3. I want to make a countdown in the front page, can I use the under construction countdown with shortcode?

4. I want to have sponsors, do that sponsors horizontal roll are fetching from a gallery or is that specific for sponsors?

5. That client specific page, how does that work? Can you show me an example?

Thanks ;))

webmandesign

Hi,

Thank you very much!

I’m currently working on the theme update and the flickering menu will be addressed in there.

  1. Yes, there is a checkbox for that. Or you can switch to a skin that doesn’t apply these CSS3 animations.
  2. You mean uploading your own fonts and using those ones? Sure. The theme is not bound to Google WebFonts in any way. You can even use other online solutions.
  3. Sorry, this is not possible currently. Maybe there is some plugin that can do this for you?
  4. The “Sponsors” section is being populated from special custom post type called “Logos”. You can categorize these and display any category anywhere you want. So you can create a category “Sponsors”, “Clients” and “Partners” and display them on different pages.
  5. Sorry, I haven’t created it for this theme demo yet. But it is basically the same like on my previous theme JazzMaster, so you can check it there: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/jazzmaster/login-page/

Regards,

Oliver

Default-user

Very nice Oliver.

About number 3, the countdown is part of a template that only can be like in the demo? Can I take the code from the countdown and implement it in the front page?

Thank you!

Best regards

webmandesign

Hi,

This would be tricky. You would have to edit more than one PHP file as I insert JavaScripts conditionally not to bloat the website with unneeded code.

I will consider to make this as shortcode in next theme update release, but this might be too late for you.

Anyway, I’ve found this for you: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/live-countdown-timer/ or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/deal-or-announcement-with-countdown-timer/

You can display widgets in page content with this theme.

Regards,

Oliver

Default-user

Thank you Oliver.

I am considering buying your theme for my next project that I am starting now. In the next few weeks I will come back.

Until then please consider that countdown, it’s really practical for event websites. And since you got that working for the construction page. :)

Thank you for your plugin suggestions. That’s good support! ;)

webmandesign

Sure thing. I will consider countdown as shortcode for future update.

...why are the demo content sliders so bad? Why can I not make it look EXACTLY like the demo version that convinced me to buy this theme? I followed the instructions but those graphics/sliders are terrible. Please help.

webmandesign

Hi,

Sorry, don’t know what you mean about sliders looking so bad. If you mean the images included and used in demo content, I can not provide exact same images like on theme demo websites as those are copyright protected images that I bought.

Instead I use public domain images (and some pixelated ones). Please understand that you don’t buy images with WordPress themes. No WP theme gives you this. You have to buy images elsewhere (like on PhotoDune or Deposit Photos or Fotolia or similar marketplace) or use your own ones. The provided images are demo only.

As for the menu icons animations, please change the skin to default one and all the animations will be enabled.

Best regards,

Oliver

understood. however…would it be possible to at least get the correct settings to the slides to get them looking like the demo version? I’m primarily interested in the settings for the layered laptop, man/woman, map slide cause i want mine to look like that with my own photos of course. Also if you could…detail how to make the slider on the home page look exactly like the demo but with the demo graphics instead of the copy protected ones.

Hi Oliver

I am playing already with your theme to get a page online the next days. Fantastic stuff. I was searching weeks to get such a complex theme serving my needs.

I agree with the shortcodes. None of my members would be able to use them. It is too “code style like”. I run a medical page with some doctors and specialists. They have to write twice a month an article. So it would be nice if you find a way to give them a grafical tool to design their content. The idea of the client area is very nice.

2 Questions: (finally)

1) How can I center the logo and underneath the navi? (also centered). I guess this could be needed often – maybe in next update?

2) the sticky nav does not work. I have installed your demo as seen on video.

thanks for any help and thumbs up for your great work.

webmandesign

Hi Pedro,

I’m glad you like my theme.

You mean the support for visual composer or something like that? Also, consider how complex design-wise would that medical articles would be. If it is a standard article, then all the tools needed are already included in the WordPress itself :)

As for the questions:
  1. If you log this as a ticket on http://support.webmandesign.eu I can help with that. It’s just some simple CSS.
  2. This issue is (will be) resolved in theme version 1.2 that I’ve already submitted to ThemeForest yesterday, but review staff don’t work during weekends, so we have to wait until Monday (Australian time) for the theme update to be released. (BTW: it will include full WooCommerce support.

Oliver

did you check if your theme works with WooCommerce 2.0? It´s a major update coming out today. The RC was out for testing. There were big changes but maybe it does not affect the styling

webmandesign

Oh, is it? I’m still new one to WooCommerce as I haven’t plan to make my business themes WooCommerce ready by default.

Will check this. Thanks for notifying me!

pedro-tirolo

just released now – video online. check it out

webmandesign

Indeed there are some styling issues with WooCommerce 2.0. I will implement fix in next theme update. I will start working on it today already.

pedro-tirolo

check out the update 2.0.1! There was an issue with the permalink structure. This is solved in the update

I can actualy see some JS animation issues in the plugin too (when selecting payment method the description opens twice for me (using Twenty Twelve theme)).

Hi Oliver,

I have two questions left just to be sure:

1. It is possible to change header height size? I am talking about the header that has the navigation menu.

2. It is possible to switch off the headings separators in specific cases? For example h2 having them and h3 don’t.

Thank you again. :)

webmandesign

Hi,

1) Yes, you can change the header height size, logo and navigation paddings.

2) You mean the separator heading? It surely is possible as you can set the heading size (H1 to H6) or user just normal headings (not separator styles). You can check examples here: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/lespaul/shortcodes/typography/

Regards,

Oliver

Default-user

1. That’s great !

2. So to show the separators I have to add them to the headers? I thought it was included with the headings.

Thanks :)

webmandesign

2) I think I’m not sure what you mean here. Whether we are talking about the same separators…

There are specially styled separator headings (this is being inserted as shortcode) which contains the heading title and diagonal stripes on background througout full width of the heading separator. You can set the heading size for these.

Then there area standard H1, H2, H3, H4, H5 and H6 headings which are WordPress (and HTML) standard, so you can place them anywhere you want.

One of the best designs on the market! My question is it possible to turn off the rotating header pull down menus? Example: Home, Pages, Portfolio pull down menus. Thank you and respect your work and admire your talents. Thank you, Jason

webmandesign

Thank you Jason! What a compliment! :)

You don’t have to create and use submenus if you don’t want. It’s just an option and showcase what is possible with the theme.

Besides, you can even disable the icon animation in the menu if you want.

Great theme!

I have a few questions before I decide to buy your LesPaul theme:

- Can I put our logo in the middle instead of left side and can we then put the menus in the middle under the logo - Can I suppress the top header with the phone no. about / portfolio / news and facebook images in your example? - Can I create a startpage with a grid of several pictures in different sizes next to each other (without spacing) and an individual text when the mouse goes over it and when I click on it I want to jump to the product details of the image. - Can I create a fullscreen image show or a fullscreen image background - Can I put a feedback button on the side of the screen - Can I create password protected pages?

Thanks for your reply

webmandesign

Hi,

Thank you for interest!

  1. Yes, this is possible very easily since current theme version 1.3.
  2. Yes, sure. This is a widget area, so don’t place any widgets in there and it won’t be displayed.
  3. It is possible to create something similar with portfolio feature of the theme ( http://themes.webmandesign.eu/lespaul/portfolio/ ). The only difference is that you won’t get different sized images here.
  4. Only fullscreen image background ( example: http://themes.webmandesign.eu/lespaul/templates/landing-page/ ). The theme doesn’t include fullscreen image slideshow.
  5. You mean stick it to the side of browser window? Yes, this is possible with simple CSS that I can help you with on http://support.webmandesign.eu . Or use a plugin?
  6. Sure. This is WordPress native functionality. The theme has its own “Client Access” area where you can control the access to certain pages in more advanced way then with password protection only.

I hope I’ve covered all your question.

Best regards,

Oliver

Default-user

Hi, Thanks for oyur reply.

I have a few more questions: - fixed header possible (stays while content scrolls down)? - Overlay caption map feature possible? (see MAPR theme—> menu map feature—> overlay caption)

thanks & regards

webmandesign

Hi,

Yes, fixed header can be enabled globally or per page basis.

The “caption map” feature is not included with the theme. But as you can use any slider plugin that can be displayed via shortcode with this theme, if you have such plugin (or you can search for something similar on CodeCanyon), you can use it. The similar thing is possible with map page only – but I mean geographical map, not the image map.

Hi I just bougth the theme and during development on my localmachine where I installed fresh wordpress and dropped in lespaul theme when I enabled the theme my firewall ask me to authorize apache process to access this url: just11.justhost.com

if i try to navigate in wordpress admin area while the theme is enabled this my firewall pops up the same request. If I disable the theme no requests. Can you let me know what this is?

I do not want my live website to depend on external site, especially since it seems that If I do not choose “no” to request as soon as it pops up in my firewall the page in admin I’m trying to access is not loading and takes 3-4 seconds to load or it will load at once if I press “no” to request to access just11.justhost.com what is this thing?

webmandesign

Hi,

Nothing to fear of in here. That’s weird why your firewall shows “just11.justhost.com” but I guess it depends on the firewall software used. I host my websites (including demo websites and update notices) in JustHost.com.

The most probable cause (judging by the delay you get on admin pages) of this “issue” is that the theme tries to conect with my server to obtain a most current version XML file (if it doesn’t get one, it tries to reconnect).

The workaround is pretty simple. Either you grant your local server access (Are you new to local server testing? As it might ask you for this when testing other websites/themes too.) or you navigate to Apperance > Theme Options > General > Basics and Disable theme update notifier.

I hope you can access theme admin pages?

One question: How to make the footer text to be centered-align?

Hi,

Thank you very much, I’m glad you like the theme! :) I always try to “rethink” my themes and put a great effort to make them better all the time, so that’s why there are a bit of time gaps between releasing them :)
