Thanks shovon1010!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the kind words so far!

My apologies on the downtime of the demo server. It turns out my host planned server maintenance (which included moving my server) literally 15 minutes after the theme launched :mad:

I’m in the process of restoring everything to normal, but thanks for your patience!

hi, is it possible and prepared to localize the theme? i would like to use it in german language.

MVPThemes

Hi fkpress,

Thanks for your interest!

This theme does not come with any localization files, but it is easily translatable where there are only a few pre-coded words that need to be changed which I can walk you through changing.

Thanks again!

fine! another question: in safari the site is flickering with the menu when i am scrolling through it. is this to fix? and: for integration of a vBulletin-Forum on my site i would like to use your theme with – is it possible to “export” the menu to put it above my forum?

MVPThemes

Hi fkpress,

Could you email me at mvpthemes@gmail.com with what you mean by “export” to vBulletin? Also, please let me know what version of Safari you are using since I am not noticing any flickering on my end.

Thanks!

Great Theme!! finally, this is the one I have been looking for. I liked your resportsive theme, but it wasn’t quite right. Max Mag looks perfect. I was hoping to be the first purchase but I need to wait for money to clear from good ol paypal. Do you have a separate link set up yet to view it on a smartphone? If so could you post it or email it to me! QR Code would be nice too!

Thanks. Charlie

MVPThemes

Hi Charlie,

Thanks for the interest and I’m glad you like the theme!

With the theme being responsive, you can use the same link for all devices, which is http://www.mvpthemes.com/maxmag

I’ll also work on getting a QR code to scan. Thanks again!

what about galleries or video-portfolios? like big news sites provide them? :-)

MVPThemes

Hi fkpress,

I will look into adding galleries and video portfolios for a future update, but could you email examples of what you’re looking for to mvpthemes@gmail.com? Thanks!

Pre-sales question:

Hi, very nice work. Would be great for a venture we are launching which does not need advertising, so just wondering how the add spaces are managed, can they be disabled through theme settings or theme needs to be customised?

Feaure request:

As per fkpress, photo-galleries (dedicated gallery pages or gellery within a post) would be excellent.

Thanks!

MVPThemes

Hi netcentric,

Each of the five advertising spaces are all optional. The 300×250 and 160×600 ad spaces are controlled via widgets, so if you don’t need them, simply don’t add the widgets. The 728×90 and the 222×90 ad spaces at the top are optional and are not visible by default. You have to provide the ad code for that entire space to appear. Otherwise, the site will start with the main menu at the top of the page if you do not provide any code. I hope this makes sense, but I’ll try to provide this visual on the demo site under the features.

And I’ll see what I can do for the gallery addition since I know that is definitely a major draw on magazine sites.

Thanks!

Hi, nice job.

Is it easy to have an image as a logo?

Also – is it possible to have contributing author logins/profiles?

Thanks. Garrett

MVPThemes

Hi Garrett,

You can use any image you’d like as your logo. The theme comes with an easy upload feature where you simply upload an image through the Theme Options and your logo will appear on the site.

Let me know what you mean by contributing author logins, since I would assume that is something you would set up in the Wordpress backend which has nothing to do with a theme. As for the profile, the theme comes with an “About the author” section on each post. Let me know if that answers your question.

Thanks!

ESPLLC

Would I be able to tie the “About the Author” page to a particular author/editor established in wordpress so clicking on the author’s name in a post would launch the profile?

Great work.

MVPThemes

The “About the Author” section pulls in the author’s name and description that is set in the backend of Wordpress in the user profile. So, if you edit the user’s profile in Wordpress and add the description, it will show up below each article.

Quick pre-sale question:

For the slider on the homepage, are the stories within it determined by a specific category or is there actually an option to mark them as featured?

Also, is it possible to have the category image that you see on the slider for category pages (i.e. “ENTERTAINMENT” in the top left of the slider in the green box) on the homepage?

Thanks.

MVPThemes

Hi Shrewski,

Thanks for the interest! The items in the homepage slider are determined by a tag of your choice.

Thanks again!

Feature request / question:

Would be fantastic if reviews could somehow be integrated with this theme.

Would you recommend a plugin or this is a feature that could be added to future version? A setup similar to Gonzo theme where review block could be added to some / any / all or no posts etc. so that reviews could still reside in any category along with standard posts would be ideal.

Thanks!

MVPThemes

Hi netcentric,

Thanks for the interest! I will look into adding this in a later update, and while I’m am sure there are plenty of plugins you could use to add this feature, I couldn’t recommend any as I am not familiar with them.

Thanks again!

great mag themes, good luck in sales.

anyway I would like to see an option to place “date/time” widget so it can easily use for news themes too.

and if I purchase the themes can you replace(give an option) on the part “Posted hours ago / comment count” at post excerpt at homepage to social share (facebook like, retweet & google+ little button)?

MVPThemes

Hi onlinebisnes,

Thanks for the kind words!

I am not sure what you mean with the first part, but the posted date/comment count part is hard-coded, so you would have to edit that section yourself if you would like to change that to a social sharing section.

Thanks again!

does it has a theme settings panel?

MVPThemes

Hi InprimoMedia,

Yes, the theme comes with a Theme Options panel that includes the ability to change the primary colors for the site, main menu and links.

I’m interested in your theme, but I would like to see some screenshots os control panel

MVPThemes

Hi was,

Thanks for the interest!

I plan to include some with the next update, but email me at mvpthemes@gmail.com and I can send you a few.

Thanks again!

Hi, first of all, great theme! I’m about to purchase but there are some formatting issues under IE 8 .

I opened the site in IE and then went to developer tools and set the browser mode to IE8 and these are the issues I’m seeing.

1) almost all thumbnails are stretched vertically 2) “search site” inside of search box is off center 3) large thumbnails under feature slider on homepage are on top of each other instead of side by side 4) section at the bottom above footer drops down to two lines instead of going all the way across. 5) on the article pages there is a weird rectangular square between the article content and right column.

You can see all the issue by switching from IE9 to IE8 and seeing where the formatting is not the same.

A lot of people still use IE 8 so if you could fix these issues i would really appreciate it.

It looks fantastic in IE9 and Safari

Thanks!

MVPThemes

Hi dman797,

Thanks for the feedback and I’m glad you like the theme!

The theme is not yet supported in IE8 , though I am currently looking into ways to resolve the things you listed to make it work.

Thanks again!

Quick pre-sale question:

Are the titles for the slider limited to a certain amount of characters? I see that all of your titles are 3 words or less. For example, can I use a 12 word title?

MVPThemes

Hi Shrewski,

The “Secondary Headline”, which is gives you the option to use a shorter headline within the featured slider is completely optional. If you do not provide a smaller “secondary” headline, the regular headline will be used in the slider. Obviously, the slider is built for smaller headlines, but you can certainly use a headline of any length in there.

Interested in buying but was wondering if you have list of available short codes?

MVPThemes

Hi westcoastwifi,

This theme currently does not come with any shortcodes, though I do plan to add some in an update soon.

OK, thanks, IE8 is listed next to Compatible Browsers in the right column on this page so I thought it was. Thanks for fixing the issues if possible.

Default-user

I cleared the cache and everything looks perfect now, thanks!

Are the latest files posted so when I purchase I’ll be downloading the latest version with all the fixes?

Thanks again for all the work on these issues.

Default-user

I spoke too soon :) Under the “popular” tab in the right column the headlines of the articles are the wrong font and color (blue now). I see this in Safari and Firefox.

MVPThemes

Hi dman797,

OK, it should be fixed now. I’ll post on my Twitter account @mvpthemes when the latest updates are available to download.

Thanks!

Pre Sale Question!

Is there a way to remove the center column? If not possible, here is my suggestion. I am a long time looking for a theme for WP where I can have control of every part of the home page and pages. And it seems you are very close to do it.

I really liked the theme, congratulations!

:D

MVPThemes

Hi FoxSpars,

Thanks for the interest and I’m glad you like the theme!

Unfortunately, the theme comes “as is” and there is no easy option to remove the center column without editing the code and there are no plans to make that feature available unless I find that there is a greater demand for it.

Thanks again!
