Hi – Looks great. I’m curious to the Accordion slider you used, does this come as a standalone plugin? I’m sure people would pay just for that!

awesem

Hi Joe,

thanks for your feedback and that’s great that you like our latest “Corporate” theme.

In regards to the accordion, we didn’t use a standalone WordPress plugin (not a bad idea though as you say…) but instead created a custom post type, custom widget in conjunction with “Easy Accordion”.

Thanks

Thanks for a speedy reply Olaf! Do you have a contact email address I can use to contact you directly with a few questions for this theme?

Hi Joe,

wow, nice work. Just started looking at your themes and they’re all great. Do ou have any responsive wordpress themes?

awesem

Hi dleodoro,

that’s great that you like our themes and your feedback is very much appreciated. We don’t have a responsive WordPress theme yet … although I have a feeling that our next item might be a responsive design ;-)

Thanks

Hello awesem!!! Congratulations … this theme is awesome! Do you have spanish translation files included?

regards

awesem

Hi Holamundo,

thanks for the kind words and we love hearing that you like our new theme :)

Unfortunately, we only have theme translations in English, German and French. There is a “default” po file included which contains the 233 language strings used throughout the theme which you could use as the basis for your translation…and if you could help us with the translation then that would be even better and we would be more than happy to link back to you in the credits. Please email me via the profile page if this is of interest to you.

Best regards

Can you post the sample data? It wasn’t in my download :(

awesem

Hi globetrotterdesigns,

thanks for your query. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to prepare the sample data in time for the release and it’s still on my todo list. We will work on this right away and update the download file today. We will also update the PSDs due to some minor changes in the final version.

Kind regards

Olaf

awesem

The sample data is now available in the release file. Once you’ve imported the file you need to select your menu and set the homepage and that should be pretty much it.

Please let me know if you experience any problems.

Thanks

I really miss some neat testimonial shortcodes here. That is almost the only thing keeping me from a purchase. Since its a corporate theme, it should have been thought of..

awesem

Hi mixix,

thanks for your feedback regarding testimonial shortcodes. The theme includes a testimonials widget but we didn’t think of a shortcode for this. It’s a very good point and we will add this to the next release.

Thanks

Hi lior,

Sorry about that, typeos… My 2 main questions are: 1.Can I insert a video + opt-in form in the header/slider 2.Can I customize the homepage, e.g to remove some of the widgets & add Buttons?

Thank you Lior

awesem

Hi Lior,

thanks for your query. We’re pleased to hear that you like our Meta theme.

By default, the slider only works with images and we used “featured images” for this: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/ -

It is possible to display a video in the slider but this would require a modification of the underlying template and it would probably be easiest to hardcode the video HTML code directly in the template and you could also do the same for an opt-in form. Simply paste your code into the relevant template and wrap it in a conditional statement. Please let me know if you have further questions on this or if you need help with this.

In regards to the customisation of the homepage, the homepage is fully widgetised and you can add and remove widgets as required. Here is a screenshot of the widget admin page showing all widgets used on our demo site: http://awesomescreenshot.com/06847nbd8

Please let me know if you have any further questions on this.

Kind regards

Hi,

Firstly great great work :-D !

Only 3 main questions:

1. Is the theme ready for the WordPress Multilingual (WMPL) Plugin? 2. Similar to the last question, would it be very hard to somehow hardcode a vimeo video within the slider to go alongside the images? 3. Would the theme be ready for wp-ecommerce?

Many thanks in advance for your help,

NP

awesem

Hi NP,

thanks for your query and we’re pleased to hear that you like our Meta theme.

In regards to your questions:

1. We’ve tried the WPML plugin with our theme and apart from a couple of strings in the options table it worked well. We’ve addressed the issues with the strings in the option table table which we will add to the next Meta release and we will release this shortly.

2. Hardcoding Vimeo Video in slider isn’t very difficult and we could assist you with this via our support forum

3. We’ve not tested the theme with WP Ecommerce. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work apart from some styling issues. You could have a look at their support forum where some CSS issues are being discussed http://awe.sm/5lat8

Please let me know if you have any further questions on this.

Kind regards

the sample xml doesn’t resemble the demo at all… can i get a new one so that it will be exactly like the demo listed here?

thanks

awesem

Hi Map85,

thanks for your query regarding the Meta sample file. The XML file included is a WordPress export which contains as categories, posts, pages, authors, comments, attachments and custom post types.

Unfortunately, a WordPress export file doesn’t contain the menu, widgets or values stored in the theme options.

Please let us know if you need any assistance setting up your site and we would be happy to assist you.

Kind regards

minus the menu and widgets the content is not the same as with your demo site… can i get that xml?

awesem

Hi Map85,

can you let us know what content you are referring to specifically? We generated the XML file included in the theme from our demo site so everything available should be there. We only changed the image references to use placeholder images instead. If there is anything specifically you are missing then we should be able to provide this separately.

Kind regards

the import looks nothing like the demo homepage and blog and about

awesem

Hi Map85,

unfortunately, there are certain elements that are not part of the XML file such as the menu items, text next to the slider which comes from the theme options and the other widgets on the homepage (which is fully widgetised).

Please let us know if you need any help getting any part of your site setup.

Kind regards

wish you could convert this to a regular HTML template would buy quickly :)

awesem

Hi mtbmedia,

thank you for your interest in our Meta theme and we are pleased to hear that you like it. Unfortunately, we don’t a stand-alone HTML template of this theme. You could consider setting up the WP version and then saving the HTML from the source code but that’s obviously not ideal and would require a little bit of work and tweaking. Alternatively, you could consider migrating over to WordPress :)

Please let us know if you need any further help with this.

Kind regards

Hi,

Love this theme and I’m finally getting my arms around how everything works. However, I am having a problem with the Accordion. On your demo, you have 2 columns in each Accordion. I am trying to achieve the same thing but not having much success. Can you explain how to create 2 columns in each Accordion?

Thx, Yanny

awesem

The 2 columns on our demo site are hard coded. But what we did is create two divs (one left floated and one right floated) and applied a fixed width (372.5px in our example). Picture: http://awe.sm/e25c

<div style="display: block; width: 372.5px; float: left;">
 column 1
</div>
<div style="display: block; width: 372.5px; float: right;">
 column 2
</div>
<div class="clear" />

Please let us know if you experience any problems with this.

Thanks

Olaf

Oh, who would have known that. So is it hard coded in a particular php file, if so, which one? Or is it hard coded in the specific Accordion?

awesem

Hi Yanny,

by hard-coded I meant that we added the HTML directly to the accordion custom post type rather than hard-coded within a PHP file as you can see in the screenshot here:

http://awesomescreenshot.com/0cb7l8vcf

Please let me know if you need any help implementing this.

jtap Purchased

Hi, great theme! I am in the process of setting up the theme like you have the demo. The only thing I am running into is on the footer – there appears to be more spacing between About Us – Testimonials – Banner Ads. What do I have to do to achieve the correct amount of padding between these widgets?

Thanks!

awesem

Hi jtap,

I hope you are well and thanks for your queries. Can you post or send us a link of your site and we will have a look into this for you.

Also, I noticed on the “Contact” page that the Testimonials widget is showing all of them at once (not transitioning), is there a fix for this?

awesem

Hi Jtap,

this problem might be caused by a jQuery conflict. As soon as we have received your URL we can have a look into this.

Thanks

Like the design and interested in purchasing but details say IE7 is supported and main slider doesnt appear in that browser, and the navigation is distorted. Any fixes coming to repair this?

awesem

Hi MarketYourself,

thanks for pointing out the problem with the slider and menu in IE7 . We weren’t aware of the problem and we will look into this. We should have a fix ready for this early next week.

Please check back again on Monday or Tuesday :)

Thanks

Olaf

awesem

We’ve had a look into this and we fixed the issue. You need to replace your style.css file (provided that you haven’t made any changes to your file) with this version:

http://cl.ly/code/0R1w433P3e2P

We will also be updating the version on ThemeForest which should become available later on today.

cvescovi Purchased

Hi there,

Love the theme, however having installed it I wanted to change the ‘Contact us’ from an email to a php post. Have made changes in the template file (template-contact.php in meta folder) and overwritten the original and confirmed it will work, but for some reason when I create a new page it is as though the original template file is still referenced somewhere. I get the old button and form fields. Any hints on a way I can point Meta to my new template file?

awesem

Hi Cvescovi,

thanks for your query and great that you love our Meta theme :)

You can try changing the template name at the top of the file and this should then be reflected on the edit page screen. Try and update the page again and hopefully this will ensure that the correct template gets used.

Please let me know if you are still experiencing problems after that.

Thanks

Olaf

Is there a way to make this theme run faster? It’s VERY SLOW.

awesem

Hi audiozs,

thanks for your query. Have you installed any caching plugins to help improve the speed? Have you run a check with Google PageSpeed or Tools.Pingdom.com and addressed some of the issues highlighted?

Feel free to submit your URL via the contact form on our profile page and we will check this for you:
