I would love this theme for a magazine, you think it could be done or do you have a sample layout?

ridgecity

ok, do we have to place post manually? for example if I wanna use the xbox style for a category, would it autopopulate it with posts from that single category?

TheMetroGuy

It’ll not auto-populate. We have to place the post manually. Metrofy is designed towards a portfolio than a magazine.

Great concept!! Not sure how difficult it is, but have you considered making this theme compatible with WooCommerce??

TheMetroGuy

I never tried WooCommerce. Not sure about the difficulty.

Default-user

Ya I’m not sure how difficult it is but Woo also states that WooCommerce can be integrated with any theme via specific integration documentation provided by them so I will give it a shot..

LOVE the tile design.. Great work!!

TheMetroGuy

Sure, do let me know if you need any help understanding the code anywhere while integrating WooCommerce. Happy to help.

Good one. Timing is good as well since I am looking to purchase one.

Query: Can I chose not to use the parallax option?

TheMetroGuy

Thanks for the purchase, Saifrusho.

Please drop me a mail from my themeforest profile page. I’ll update you on the changes.

Liking it… Need some help in making tiles with pop-up description as shown in your works section. How do I make that? I looked for help in page builder documentation but no luck. Could not get into support forum of page builder either (my username and purchase code didn’t work).

TheMetroGuy

Saif, for tiles description in ‘works’ section, you need to create ‘portfolio item’ and add description to the ‘Excerpt’ field under ‘Additional Item Details’

Please read the theme documentation, it covers details on how to create the portfolio items and other details.

As I mentioned in the email, I’ll update you once I add ‘description’ support to other tiles as well. Right now, only portfolio tiles support description.

Reach me on my email for quick response.

Just bought the theme and am really enjoying the many options. Two questions.

1. On a the ipad, the top header slider is distorted and am not sure what the preferred dimensions are supposed to be for that main slider. Any help on that would be great.

2. I went with a slider + tiles because when I was designing “create from page”, none of the blocks would show up. I read the documentation which was extremely well done, so any tips for making that work would be great. Here is the site I am working on. www.fbcncreative.com

TheMetroGuy

Please drop me a mail to chaitanyavrk[at]gmail[dot]com

Let’s talk and will help you fix the issues. It’d be helpful if you can send me a screenshot of the ipad issue.

Thanks for the purchase.

I’m considering a purchase and I have a couple of questions…

1. On an iPhone, is there any way to allow see a series of buttons/links to navigate instead of a drop down list? If not, any chance of adding this option in a future update?

2. One thing I need which I can’t see in the sample sites (but I see in the other templates which are in my shortlist) is a “About the Team” type page. Is there anything like that available? If not, any chance of adding this option in a future update? Examples of what I’m looking for are: here, here, and here.

TheMetroGuy

Thank you for your interest in metrofy.

1. The iphone menu as links is not available. I’ll try to add it as an option in next update so that users can choose between dropdown and list/menu.

2. Creating a about the team is pretty much straight forward, using the page builder. I can help you set that up. Note: Skills and Expand Collapse are not available in this version metrofy.

Default-user

Wow… thanks for the super quick reply. OK those are some positive answers. Here are a bunch more questions/feature requests based on what I’m seeing in the short list contenders I have assembled:

3. I see in some of the other themes that they have build in effects on the content of their sliders (example here. Is that possible with your theme?

4. Is it possible to have a “recent tweets” box? For example, on the “My Team” page, beside/under the bio of the person, I may want to put a box that includes their recent tweets. An example of that in another theme can be seen here

5. Can we do a “Our Partners” element where I can have logos of my partners/customers?

6. any plans to make the template retina ready with hi-res graphics for retina displays? Most of the other themes on my short list are already retina ready.

7. What about other features like: a. accordions b. toggles c. icon boxes d. features works e. promo text f. testimonials g. dismissible message boxes h. price tables i. youtube and vimeo videos any plans to add those in an imminent release?

8. I would like to have my phone number at the top of the page close to the logo. Is that possible?

9. I have seen some themes that allow us to place a newsletter signup box at the bottom of the page or even in the slider at the top of the page. Is that possible with this theme? Are those essentially just very simple forms with only one item?

10. I don’t see any pages with sidebars in the demo site. Do you have pages with sidebars where we can place shortcodes in the theme?

11. Any plans to incorporate WPML in the future for translations?

I really like the look of your theme. I’m asking most of these questions to asses how my site might be able to grow long term with your theme.

Thanks, Aslam

3. I see in some of the other themes that they have build in effects on the content of their sliders (example here. Is that possible with your theme?

Not available

4. Is it possible to have a “recent tweets” box? For example, on the “My Team” page, beside/under the bio of the person, I may want to put a box that includes their recent tweets. An example of that in another theme can be seen here

Not available in-built but possible by using plugins.

5. Can we do a “Our Partners” element where I can have logos of my partners/customers?

Yes, possible by using page builder or shortcodes

6. any plans to make the template retina ready with hi-res graphics for retina displays? Most of the other themes on my short list are already retina ready.

Yes, but not in an imminent release.

7. What about other features like: a. accordions b. toggles c. icon boxes d. features works e. promo text f. testimonials g. dismissible message boxes h. price tables i. youtube and vimeo videos any plans to add those in an imminent release?

Check the available features here http://themes.themetroguy.com/metrofywp/features/

Featured works, testimonials, youtube and vimeo videos are supported. I’m planning to support ‘pricing tables’ and ‘message boxes’ soon.

8. I would like to have my phone number at the top of the page close to the logo. Is that possible?

No, not without changing the theme files.

9. I have seen some themes that allow us to place a newsletter signup box at the bottom of the page or even in the slider at the top of the page. Is that possible with this theme? Are those essentially just very simple forms with only one item?

Not possible.

10. I don’t see any pages with sidebars in the demo site. Do you have pages with sidebars where we can place shortcodes in the theme?

Only blog pages support sidebars.

11. Any plans to incorporate WPML in the future for translations?

Yes, the theme is translation ready.

I tried to answer my best. Let me know if you need more information. As a personal opinion, I prefer to extend the theme features by using plugins. So that the changes are not lost when I switch the theme.

Hi, beautiful theme! I’m considering purchasing, but have a blog question first: I see that in the demo, the posts (featured image/excerpts) are linked to a single post page. The ‘Blog’ navigation on the top only goes to this group of excerpts, and I’m trying to figure out how one would use the blog page demo you have, that shows a full running blog. Is it easy to create a way to navigate to the full blog without interrupting the great, one-page layout (or making it too long?)

Thanks in advance! Jena

TheMetroGuy

In the demo, the menu ‘blog’ links to a full featured blog page showing the posts in reverse chronological order, just like any other WordPress blog.

The blog section shown on home page is a ‘page’ created by the user on which can user can select what posts to show, from which category.

The theme also support posts by categories, by tags, by month. In short, metrofy comes with a full featured blog, which can be shown on a separate page or on home page or both.

If you’d like to see a particular example (like some other site you have in mind), I’ll try to create that as a demo.

Default-user

Okay, thanks for the re-assurance! I’m going to buy the theme :)

TheMetroGuy

Happy to hear that. Reach me on my email for any help setting up the site, for feedback and feature suggestions.

Sorry – one more piece to my inquiry: when I resize the blog demo (http://themes.themetroguy.com/metrofytiles/blog/) to see the responsiveness, there is a lot of white space in between things – is this a bug? Thanks!

TheMetroGuy

Hi Jena, Thanks for reporting this. I’ll fix it in my imminent update.

Got some problems with images in the tiles. When I check out the properties I get the dimensions of the image let’s say 392×135, when I add the image to the tile with these dimensions, the image seems distorted and gets other dimensions (in this case 380×130).

TheMetroGuy

Hi,

Thanks for the purchase.

Tiles come with 3 different height options. Width can very as per the requirement.

Please drop me a mail with links to the problem. I can help you resolve the issue fast.

Hi,

Just bought and downloaded the theme and there is no MetrofyWP or wordpress_files folder in the zip. There are two folders when I unzip the theme – License and Package and within the Package folder there are four more folders – Documentation, Demo Theme Content, License again and metrofy – the folder with the theme files.

There is an xml file called MetrofyWP, but no folder with this name.

Could you please help me out?

I downloaded the whole thing again in case something got wrong during download the first time but the new zip didn’t have the folder either.

Thanks in advance. Petya

TheMetroGuy

Hi Petya,

Thanks for the purchase.

You need to use ‘metrofy’ folder under ‘Package’. That is the one which contains the theme.

Please reach me on chaitanyavrk@gmail.com for any help regarding the theme setup.

Hi!

Thx for the prompt reply. I was expecting a .zip folder somewhere and that’s why I got lost, but I installed the theme successfully now. Thank you for your help.

I’ll reach you if I have further questions. And with feedback to help you further develop this beautiful template.

Forgot to mention before – the theme looks great, I love it. Hope it’s as good at the backend :)

Best regards, Petya

TheMetroGuy

Thank you, Petya.

That’s great. I’ll wait for your feedback and suggestions.

Few other buyers also reported some issues and things they like to have. I’m working on an update to be released soon.

Drop me a test mail from my themeforest profile page, I’ll send you updated files where few things were fixed.

Like the theme. But I’m having issues. The scrolling down “one page” style that the demo has isn’t working for me. Also, there is a huge distance between the menu and the slider. Please take a look and help. http://location-social.com/cfa/

TheMetroGuy

Hi Ryan,

I see few problems the way the site was setup. It looks like you choose ‘Slider + Tiles’ as the featured layout but not configured the slider and tiles. The top row empty tiles are because of that.

Please set the setting to ‘Create from page’ and it should work fine.
