Any tips on how to translate your theme? It seems like there is multiple textdomains and Codestyling Localization can’t make use the translation codes you have hidden in customized functions… :-(

pixelentity

Hi,

Only one form of theme translation is supported in the Mentor theme, that’s the use of a pot file. See the readme in the language folder in the theme root for more info.

DOK

flowcom_ab

Warning: The actual loaded translation content contains mixed textdomains and is not pure translateable within one textdomain. It seems, that there is code contained extracted out of other plugins, themes or widgets and used by copy & paste inside some source files.

pixelentity

We bundle the wordpress importer plugin for the “one click theme import” feature. It comes with its own pot file and you don’t need to translate that.

Only translate the file in the languages subfolder.

flowcom_ab

You can’t put translation function in your own function like this: __pe(‘text to translate’)

It should for compability reasons be written as standards: __( ‘text to translate’, PE_THEME_NAME )

Also correct the load of the textdomain: load_theme_textdomain( PE_THEME_NAME, ”$tp/languages” );

What do you achieve with these updates? Translations could be done with standard tools like Codestyling Localization and other. And your code streamlines to standard writing.

Why do I bother? I like your theme and small changes could make the theme better and perhaps worth the money spent…

flowcom_ab

So what you are saying is that only one language at a time is allowed with your theme?

pixelentity

No, i’m saying that we only use a single text domain which = PE_THEME_NAME defined constant.

There’s no need to scan theme sources to extract strings as we already provide a proper pot file for it (languages/mentor.pot). Poedit, wpml and any translation plugin supporting po files would just work out of the box.

flowcom_ab

Nope, translation is not possible to the Mentor theme. You have several textdomains, hardcoded texts and a non standard way to implement language translation support.

flowcom_ab

PeThemeComments.php have several hard coded strings :-(

flowcom_ab

You are using ‘wordpress-importer’ -textdomain in several places!

pixelentity

I already told you, those messages are coming from the bundled wordpress-importer plugin we use to offer the “one click demo install” feature.

Again, do not scan the theme for strings, that’s pointless. We provide a pot file, use that with poedit (like any other buyer did for mentor) and you won’t have any issue.

If you need further details, please head to our support forum http://support.pixelentity.com/

To fix the themes translation issuses:

Search and replace strings with the following regular expression at the whole themes folder (all files).

Stage 1:

e__pe.*?('|")(.*?)('|")\)

Replace with

_e($1$2$3,PE_THEME_NAME)

Stage 2:

__pe.*?('|")(.*?)('|")\)

Replace with

__($1$2$3,PE_THEME_NAME)

Stage 3:

'wordpress-importer'

Replace with

PE_THEME_NAME

Stage 4:

(__\('Logged in as.*?')

Replace with

$1,PE_THEME_NAME

Now your Mentor themes has only one textdomain. Still a lot of hard coded strings…

Hello,

Is there a way to force the video thumbnails on posts to a higher resolution or larger size? I am using YouTube, and mine look extremely blurry. The image supplied via YouTube for the still is 480×360px, however the post area is 680px wide, which appears to be causing the distortion. Thanks

hi there ! the subscribe form is great but it does not work ! i do not reveice the email of the subscribers. i received a text which is ” subscribe”. so how can i receive the real email that people enter ??

pixelentity

Hi,

The subscriber email is the email address from which the “subscribe” email is sent. This is set up so that you can link the form to an email list service, which automatically saves new names based on receiving those types of emails. Most of the main list services have such a function.

Default-user

ok and how can i change that ? no documentation ?

I like your Custom Carousel slider. Do you sell that as a separate product?

pixelentity

Hello

no, that’s not available as standalone product.

Could you tell me where to locate the help and documentation files. I have a few items that I would like to customize in the theme and can’t seem to find any documentation.

pixelentity

Hello,

unpack the download.zip and you’ll find a docs folder

Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest version of mentor (1.3.1) because it runs without issues on wp 3.5.

Mentor preview runs on 3.5 as well. If you still having issue, please head to our support forum http://support.pixelentity.com/

Hello. I LOVE the template. I have a few questions before purchasing:

1. Can the home page carousel play a youtube/vimeo video within the carousel? If so, does the video stop playing when you click through to the next slide?

2. I don’t want to use drop downs. But I need to have the following in my main navigation: •Home Page (full width slider) •About Page(full width text) •Project Page with Grid •Another Project Page with Grid •Contact Page

I know the Home, About and Contact are doable. But is it possible to have two different grid project pages in the main nav menu?

3. In the Project Page with Grid, can I have the images in 3 columns instead of 4 so that the text on the side can take up more room?

4. Also can the text that’s on the right side of the grid be moved to the left side instead? I only ask because I when I look at your site on my phone, that text is all the way at the bottom of the thumbnails. I’m assuming it’s because the text is set to float right. If it’s possible to make the text float left maybe it will show above the thumbnails on a small mobile device.

Thank you so much and I hope the answer to all of my questions is “YES” haha.

-Dana

pixelentity

Hi,

1. Unfortunately the carousel only shows images.

2. Yes this is possible.

3. This would require customisation of the theme’s php files.

4. This would require customisation of the theme’s php files and perhaps a bit of CSS also. It’s not as simple as floating the text.

Regards,

DOK

Hello, I like this theme and considering to purchase this. I have few questions:
  • If I buy this then is this a permanent license or I have to renew each year?
  • Are there any special server requirements? My hosting php is runs under a very tight conditions. So, do you need something special?
  • I hope you do not get offended by the next question – are your php files properly sanitized? Are there any backdoor?
  • I went through your forum and fond that if the theme does not work with wordpress then you require admin credential to look into it. The may not be an option in our case. If the theme does not work then can we get a refund?

Thanks for your time.

Hi canmort,

1.) Once purchased, you get free theme updates for life, no need to repurchase.

2.) If you can run WordPress, you should be able to run this theme too.

3.) I can proudly say that our code is one of the best I have seen on TF, we are not new to WordPress and our developers have extensive knowledge and are very skilled.

4.) If the theme does not work as advertised, you can ask the Envato for refund, authors have no way of reufnding the customers. We will of course do our best to help you out in fixing the problems.

Hi,

Is there a way to have multiple video portfolios on separate pages? We’d like to have 4 pages with a completely different set of videos on each.

Thanks

pixelentity

hello,

yes but you would have to group them by a different project tag. Then create multiple portfolio pages and use “Only Include Projects With The Following Tags” option in each of them.

Default-user

Where can I find the shortcode for that?

Default-user

I found the area on each page, but when I select 4 out of 8 to be shown, all 8 tags show.

It doesn’t seem to be hiding the ones I don’t want to display.

Hello,

How many slides does sliders support? could be more than 7 slides?

Could slide be clickable to go to page?

does this theme support RTL?

Thanks!

pixelentity

hello,

you can have as many slides as you want, links would require theme template customization, we didn’t test RTL languages

Default-user

Thanks, are you be bale to help with code customization for slider?
