Hi, first of all awesome looking theme I did have one question and I am pretty sure you answered it in a previous comment but I wanted to make sure.

What I am wondering is are the tiles based off post entries and thus you are not able to put actual widget inside the tiles such as Twitter or Facebook ? (unless the widget has a short code)

Thanks in advance!

Hi scottbeckman,

Thanks for your interest in my theme! Yes, they are based off posts but you can use them to link to other links as well (without the lightbox). However, they cannot show widgets unless you modify the codes to put a widget into a tile, even shortcodes will not be processed in the lightbox or the tile.

If you still have any questions, feel free to contact me again.

Thank you.

hi Billy,

Very beautiful theme. I may buy this theme very soon! Anyway, can you help me to show the search button at the top of the theme? Or do I have to do it by myself? I am not a savvy programmer though..

Thanks in advance, Aji

Hi Aji,

Thanks for your interest in my theme! I can add the code to display a search box at the top for you (but no styling, just the default input box). Otherwise, if you want it to be styled nicely, I’m afraid you might need to get someone to do it if you’re not sure how to do it.

If you still have any questions, feel free to contact me again.

Hello, Thank you for this amazing theme. This is one purchase I did not regret!

I need help fixing my header. I am trying to decrease the distance between the menu bar and the Title. There is a big gap and I can’t find a way to decrease it.

I can email you a screenshot if possible.

Hi kalamm1,

Thanks for purchasing my theme, I’m glad you like it!

Regarding your question, you may use the following code in Appearance > Theme Options > Custom Style :
#container{
padding-top:10px;
}

That will change the gap to 10px.

Thank you.

Thank you for the reply, but unfortunately that did not work

Hi kalamm1,

Sorry, I thought you meant the gap above the header. If you want to reduce the gap between the menu and the website name (in my live preview, the space between menu and ‘Matrix’), you may use the following code :
nav{
float:left;
margin-left:10px;
}
Just adjust the margin to alter the distance.

Thank you.

Hi Billy!

I work for a university and I am considering purchasing this theme for our departmental website. I do have a few questions -

Ultimately I would like to be able to have the majority of the tiles link to information pages on our programs, as well as one or two devoted to recent posts and widgets like facebook. I get the impression from reading through the comments that this is possible, but I just wanted to confirm.

Secondly, is it possible to customize the icon of each tile to correspond to either the picture or text associated with each page/post?

And lastly, as I have never purchased a theme like this before, are there recurring costs, or simply the $45 license fee upfront?

Thanks so much for your time, Best, Allen

Hi Allen,

Thanks for your interest in my theme! Yes, it is possible to link to any post / URL through the tiles. You just need to create a new post as usual, upload its tile image (this applies to your second question) and set the post format as ‘Link’ to insert the URL to be redirected to.

However, if you want to add tiles which are devoted to recent posts / widgets, you will need to customize the code or hire a developer to do that because by default, the theme only displays the most recent posts in tiles (1 tile for each post).

As for the fee of purchase, it is a one-time $45 fee for regular license which can only be used for 1 website / domain name. Basic theme support is included for theme bugs or problems regarding existing features in the theme, but extra charges may be required if I need to customize the theme or solve some problems caused by features not included in the theme’s purchase via ThemeForest.

If you still have any questions, feel free to contact me again.

Thank you.

Thanks so much for your quick reply! I just have a couple more questions.

Reading through the theme details it seems like the tile size can be customized. Is this customizable per item or by category? (i.e. all post tiles are medium, all page link tiles are large, etc…)

Also, am I correct in assuming that the rest of our (WordPress created) pages and content will be retained and linkable through the new interface?

Lastly, In the past I have had issues with our current customized theme when updating our WordPress version. While I know its not so cut and dry, overall do issues seem to come up when updating?

Again, thanks so much for your time. Best regards.

Hi acfreese,

You’re welcome. The tile size at the homepage can be controlled individually, but for all archive tiles (category, search result etc.), they will share a uniform tile size as set at the Theme Options unless you manually modify the codes at those relevant files to override the settings.

As for links, yes, a tile can be redirected to any URL as long as that post itself is set to ‘Link’ post format and contains a valid URL in the relevant field. Any posts created prior to activating the theme will not have a tile, so you will need to upload an image or assign a tile colour and update the post to make it visible at the homepage.

While I can’t make any guarantees about whether there will be issues after updating WordPress to the latest version, it is advisable to keep using the current version until the version compatibility has been updated. Sometimes there are major changes which can break some parts of the theme, but so far it has only occurred once to this theme between version 3.2 and 3.9.

If there’s still any queries, don’t hesitate to contact me again.

Thank you.
