Is the theme compatible with the latest Wordpress 3.6 update?

jonathan01

We are still in the process of testing everything, but we haven’t found any issues yet with any of the other themes and they are all coded by the same person, so you should be good.

Thanks

Jonathan,

I want to say that I really love the theme and everything that comes with it but I have one major complaint. When using the Theme Options page within the Wordpress Admin Panel, the “Reset” button is much more of an eye-catching call to action than the “Save” button. For this reason, I’ve now inadvertently hit reset 3 times now and without any JS or warning prompt asking “Are you sure you want to reset”, it resets. This is VERY frustrating. Even though I know what I want my design to look like, having to go back through and restyle everything after mistakenly hitting the reset is absolutely unnecessary. So what am I saying? In a future update (hopefully near), can you please:
  1. Make the “Reset” button less noticeable and attractive to the eyes. I know you’ve got good UX down so it’s sufficient to say, look at any blu-ray player, cable box, or any sort of component box and you’ll see the power button is much larger than the reset button, it’s just easier for us this way.
  2. Make the “Save Changes” much more attractive and eye-catching.
  3. Make a warning prompt or something that asks “Are you sure you want to reset all styles?” upon hitting the “Reset” button.

Please understand my frustration when I say purchasing a premium theme as awesome as this one, it’s disappointing that this one little thing makes for a backend that isn’t the same caliber product as what is displayed on the frontend.

Thanks for everything so far and keep up the awesome work!

Mike

Thank you for the kind comments and the feedback Mike, I’m really sorry you’ve had a bad experience with the theme options page. We actually integrate a 3rd party solution into the theme for the theme options and I believe, on our next update we will be updating the the theme options to the latest release of that particular feature, we will certainly check it out and take into consideration your comments.

My tweets stopped working. I have placed the div class=”tweet” code as outlined in the documentation and it was working correctly before. http://caricanary.com/contact/ Any idea what’s gone wrong?

jonathan01

Hi, that API was retired by Twitter back in June, you will have to Google this (as you have to set up your Twitter account differently) or just find a plugin that will work.

Thanks

caricanary

Is there an update for the twitter plugin you were using to meet the new API requirements? Or can you recommend a plugin?

jonathan01

Hi – no we are leaving that as an option for the buyer as there are so many plugins and half still don’t work and then most buyers have given up jumping through the hoops Twitter have put in place. I don’t have a recommended one at this moment in time but would suggest heavily reading support questions on a plugin before trying as I mentioned earlier people are still having issues unfortunately with so many that say they work and don’t.

Hi Jonathan,

My client just bought this template and we are now installing the demo. Unfortunately the Homepage slider cropping funtionality doesn’t work: http://217.199.187.64/foc-uk.com/?page_id=7 Would you be able to help us out with this?

Thanks in advance.

Ada

jonathan01

Hi – I’m not sure what you mean by cropping is not working, we don’t crop, if you set the background color as instructed and then stretch the browser window wider again – you will see the slider image will not go over the text areas underneath.

Hi Jonathan,

Hope you are well. My client just purchased your theme and installed the demo XML file with all plugins. Unfortunately the homepage isn’t right. The cropping functionality for the slider is not working, would you be able to help out me with this?

Thanks in advance,

Ada

Hi – only the person that purchased can ask and receive support – please register at the support center and we can help – the support center will require your license code from the purchase and the link is on my profile page, the item description page and inside the documentation PDF file – thanks

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan, Thanks for your fast response. I will ask my client for the purchase code to register in the support center, but in the mean time, could you please just have a look and tell me what’s wrong? http://217.199.187.64/foc-uk.com/?page_id=7 I do have all the documentation and files that came with it, I followed all the procedures on the PDF document. Maybe I missed something. Thanks again,

Ada

jonathan01

Hi again – support questions are only accepted and responded to once the purchase can be confirmed and only through the support center I’m sorry.

Once you submit your ticket we will be able to assist no problem.

Jonathan

Coolio,

I just got the license code from my client. I will repost all the details on the Support centre page. I will attach a screenshot of the homepage, so it is easier for you to see how it looks on my side.

Thanks again and speak soon,

Ada

Hey Jonathan, Just a quick question this time: How can I exclude specific pages from showing up in the main navigation on the mobile version of my site? Currently it is simply picking up all pages that exist.

Thanks. Still loving Mammoth! Philipp

Default-user

Have to rephrase the question: The navigation is empty now. However the iOS dropdown still shows up on the mobile version. How can I exclude the dropdown from showing if there are no menu items to be displayed?

Thanks.

jonathan01

Hi – the theme uses the menu function built in to WP – we don’t provide a different menu option for mobile, if you follow your instructions on setting up your menu – the pages that show up there are the pages that you dropped into the primary menu.

Default-user

Thanks. Not quite what I was looking for but I found a way to make things work for me within the options the theme provides. Thanks.

jonathan01

It’s actually WordPress that powers menu not the theme – but happy you got things working!

Hi, what is the current version of this theme? I can’t seem to tell from anywhere specific and want to see if I should upgrade.

Thanks! Gina

jonathan01

Hi – Envato send out email notifications when an item is updated – however if you look on the item description page we have our updates listed with the dates and the files or alterations listed.

Many thanks

I saw that however, what is the version number. It would be helpful if you put version numbers, ie vs2.1 I don’t remember what date I installed this theme.

jonathan01

We are starting to introduce this however simply looking at any of your files you downloaded will give a date – or look on your server to see the date stamp etc.

Issue is noted and we already are starting to do this with the slightly older files such as this :)

Rest assured if you bought anytime after 4/29 then you’re the latest version – the previous version was January – if you fall between those dates chances are you should upgrade.

Again thanks for the feedback

Jonathan

a simple answer to the question would have been helpful but okay I will download everything and figure it out.

jonathan01

Not sure how I’ve upset you but it seems I may of done with trying to explain the full situation – I’m sorry about that.

If you want to open a ticket and supply your ftp I can do everything for you if you prefer – it should take 2 seconds.

If you prefer to give me the date of your purchase I can confirm – without this info I have no idea what version you have :)

Just trying to be thorough in my replies for you.

I maintain a bunch of WP sites. Most of the detail pages have version numbers so you can compare with what you see on WP. For example, Minx, at the bottom says Version 1.0.2 – 18th Sept 2013 That way I can just quickly compare the versions to see where I am at. I don’t update all the time as I have at least 20 pages I maintain with various themes. Yours was the one I couldn’t find a current version number so wanted a quick answer. That is all I needed was the number and thought this would be faster than downloading. My current version of Mammoth is 1.0

jonathan01

I would simply look at header.php – if the date of the file is older than April 29th then you have the old file and should upgrade.

As I said we didn’t have version numbers old the older files, we are in the process of updating all themes with this feature along with many upgrades.

Many thanks

Oh sorry, I didn’t understand what you meant by introduce this. I will just upgrade and then know for sure. Thanks for your help.

Good evening from California. I am evaluating several themes at the request of a client. To that end, I have a few quick questions that I hope you can answer for me:

  1. Single page scrolling templates are great for story telling segments but not for a whole site of this size. Is mixing story-style pages (single page, parallax) with standard single-page sections (page.php) supported?
  2. Is it possible to create multiple parallax sections or is that a home page only feature?
  3. Are bulky JS files conditionally called on a page? Loading up the entire JS and CSS library for a slider on a single-post blog page is a waste of processing power.
  4. Does the theme use a hook/action model for child themeing or is it a get_template_part() model? Or is the code all inline in a few large files?

Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions. Without access to the theme code, it can be difficult to evaluate the flexibility and quality of a commercial product before purchasing it.

Best Regards, Ian Armstrong / Imperative Ideas

jonathan01

Hi we don’t have any parallax in this theme so not sure you posted to the correct item here? Please let me know – thanks

Jonathan

Sorry Jonathan, I am evaluating both types of themes and copied your link into the wrong group. Your reply speed, however, is noted :)

isarmstrong

I do note that on the Right Sidebar page, I am receiving some developer console errors:

http://mythemepreviews.com/mammoth/standard/right-sidebar
GET http://i0.wp.com/path_to_url 400 (Bad Request) right-sidebar:572

jonathan01

That’s an error from Twitters API – we don’t actually use that twitter feed now so we should remove as it’s the old twitter api1 that doesn’t exist anymore and isn’t part of the theme as we recommend users use one of the available plugins and do their own oAuthentication that is now required.

The other error is actually my missing avatar from gravatar – need to fix that it seems.

Jonathan

isarmstrong

No worries, again, I appreciate the fast replies. The only things I could critique are that if you aren’t conditionally loading assets when you enqueue your scripts, you should probably minify most of these scripts and stick them all in a single plugins.js file. Flexslider probably doesn’t need to be on every page either.

Overall though, this is a lot cleaner than most of the code I’m looking at today.

jonathan01

We actually have a large update coming out early new year as this is the last of our WP themes to be fully updated with more cleaner code etc – we never minify scripts as that’s bad for buyers and it’s best done by the buyer / buyers developer once they have finished tweaking everything. The conditional will be in place with the new update along with everything being moved to plugins for short codes / custom post types etc. Of course this is a free update to buyers.

Many thanks again.

Hi Jonathan,

I love the Gutenberg & Elite theme, so I guess I’ll love this one too. Just two pre-sales questions:

1. Is it possible to add the google translate widget in the header? (without the theme flipping) 2. Is it possible to put videos in the slider?

Thanks!

Ayla

jonathan01

Hi – there’s no reason why the translate wouldn’t work, we personally haven’t tried it, but I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be fine. As for the slider, we only use the featured image, so you would have to change the slider functionality in order to place videos in there.

aylaverheijen

Thanks, that’ll do!

jonathan01

No worries!
