Hi Peter, I just resent the email.

Hope you will get it this time.

Thanks

That’s the correct e-mail address but i haven’t received anything yet. Could you try sending again. If you need to customize it then you most probably will require some back end coding however the theme works “out of the box” and shouldn’t require any custom coding to get it to work.

Drop me an e-mail with some screen shots and what you need to have done, as well as the wordpress version and any plugins that you may be using and i’ll try to see what’s going on.

Cheers

Peter

Hi Mate,

Yes, i have received your e-mail this time. As soon as i find some time i will have a look at it in more detail. If you could please create a user account for me on your WP site that would help considerably as i would then be able to log in and make some adjustments. You can send anything to the same e-mail as before.

Cheers,

Peter

Hello Pedro, I can’t get the theme to load and keep getting this error.

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Hi,

Unfortunately i can’t offer any support as i can’t see that you have purchased one of my files. If you used another account other than “anewkirk” to buy the file please post a comment as that user or send me a message through my profile page.

Cheers,

Peter

PS: are you sure it was the WP version of dotMobi that you purchased and not the HTML version?

pedrodonkey

I just noticed you had already sent a message through my den page. Unfortunately it’s as i expected and the reason it’s not working is because you have purchased the HTML version of DotMobi rather than the WordPress version.

Please contact support and let them know so that perhaps they can issue a refund as this is out of my hands.

Cheers,

Peter

Hi, has anyone tried to wrap this up in PhoneGap as a native app? Is that possible? Thanks, Craig

pedrodonkey

Hi Craig,

I haven’t heard from any users who have attempted that. Keep in mind that this is a WordPress theme and I’m not sure if it’s even possible to wrap up something like that and prep it as a native app.

There is a HTML version of this theme available if that serves you better:

How to show a “page” on the home page instead of the most recent post? If I go to the wordrpress option and set a “static page” as home page, the tabs menu desapear but I want to keep it.

I’m not much of a coder so if you could provide step-by-step instructions I would appreciate it.

Other than that it’s a great theme!

Hello Peter, I’m having some issues with the “read more” item that don’t want to display on categorie pages even after having inserted the “read more” tag in the article. Could you help me with that ? Thanks in advance

pedrodonkey

Hi,

I don’t have the files in front of me right now but if you open the functions.php file and locate the function for creating this read more tag simply remove the words from within the quotes ’’ and that should do the trick. Please make a backup of your files before you change anything.

Let me know if this works,

Cheers,

Peter

I can’t locate the function in the funtion.php file. I send you the function.php file to this adress admin[at]wordpressmobiletheme[dot]com Maybe you need an administrator access ?

Cheers

pedrodonkey

I should have some time to look into it by this time next week.

I just purchased this and the Wordpress 3.0+ dotMobi theme folder looks completely broken on Wordpress 3.3.2.

I didn’t expect it to look terrible right out the box.

pedrodonkey

Hi,

There shouldn’t be any issues with WordPress 3.3.2. Could you provide more info such as screenshots of the activated theme, browsers tested, your web host etc.

If you could send that all in an e-mail to camel_hoof60 [at] hotmail [dot] com it will help pin-point the issue.

Cheers,

Hi peter

Do you plan to make this very nive theme alco compatible (responive) with all the tablets iPad, samsung, etc?

Thanks you

pedrodonkey

Hi,

There’s no plans for making this specific theme responsive. However i am working on another mobile theme which is more compatible with other devices.

FYI . If you set the width to fluid for DotMobi – 100% then it will expand to fit most device screen sizes.

Subscribe to my feed for updates on new themes coming very soon.

Hi,I purchased you theme last year.i would like to know if we can add google search to current search box in this theme?

pedrodonkey

Hi. I don’t see why not. You can try using a plugin to see how it works. Google “wordpress google search plugin” and give one of those a try.

Cheers,

Peter

Can we have links to facebook, twitter, etc. that are links to the mobile versions of these sites. Right now, it appears that these social media sites are not mobilized. They point to the desktop versions. Which means to have to get to your PC. What if you are on the road and only have a mobile phone at hand?

Short question: how to see these social media sites on mobile phone? I don’t know, that’s why I am asking. Any suggestions, or howto’s?

Thanks.

pedrodonkey

Hi. The URL ’s for the social media icons are entered from the admin settings so you can enter what ever URL you’d like. If you visit Facebook or Twitter from a smart phone it should automatically redirect you to the mobile version of their site so you shouldn’t need to enter the mobile URL manually. If you find a site that doesn’t automatically redirect you then you can always enter the URL if you know what it is – you can usually find it by entering m.facebook.com or facebook.com/mobile etc.

Hope that helps,

Cheers

Hi, how easy is it to add Google Adsense mobile adds to the theme?

pedrodonkey

Hi. I’m not familiar with these types ads from google so can’t say how easy it is to integrate. At the end of the day the theme is based on html/php/css so it should make a difference to getting these ads installed from a normal desktop theme. Perhaps you can even look around for a WP Plugin which will make this a whole lot easier.

Cheers,

Peter

Hello Author,

I have been trying very hard to make the thumbnails that generate at a cropped ratio on the home page to actually not crop and just show full imaged there, How can i do this?

Hi, have you had a look at the TimThumb authors site for more info?

Hi, need a little help. My theme install efforts have met with the following error:

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-123198-mobitheme-wordpress-theme-for-mobile-devices.zip

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

NOTE : I triple checked to make sure I bought the Wordpress theme and not some HTML type template.

The error looks immediately related to the style.css file (which is missing) can you help? Thanks.

pedrodonkey

Hi,

I’ll look into this shortly. I had to re-package this theme recently so there’s a possibility that the file is indeed missing. If this is the case could you either reply to this message with your e-mail address or send me a message via the form through my profile page so that i can send you the missing style.css file.

Cheers,

Peter

pedrodonkey

OK, it seems that the style.css file IS missing from the Wordpress Theme 3.0+ directory. For the time being until i get to my main PC where my files are so that i can re-package and submit the file update , you could copy the style.css file form the other Wordpress Theme 2.8-2.9 and use that – it should be the same as the 3.0 style sheet.

Let me know how that goes and just for same measures i’ll send you the separate style sheet asap.

Cheers,

Peter

Hi Peter,

I working on your theme I purchased few days ago and I find it excellent, clever designed and easy to modify. Thanks a lot!

pedrodonkey

Appreciate the feedback and glad you find it easy to use :)

The homepage of my desktop site goes to a static page, instead of showing my latest posts (www.teamfrm.com).

Is it possible to make my latest posts show up on the mobile homepage without sacrificing the homepage I have on the desktop site?

pedrodonkey

Hi,

This is already how the default mobile theme works. It displays the latest posts on the home page of the mobile theme. You can always modify the loop to output posts from a specific category i.e. featured posts or home page posts etc.

Cheers,

Peter

Hello Pedro

I’ve just purchased your theme and will be using it alongside a desktop theme I’ve already set up (Goodnews by Momizat).

Many of my pages use shortcodes from the Goodnews theme for things like boxes, buttons and columns (example here). These don’t work on the MobiTheme and instead display lots of messy code.

Do you think you could help guide me to a possible solution? I don’t know if any of the following are possible…

1. Some clever way to make the shortcodes work on the Mobi Theme (or at least avoid displaying the messy code).

2. Have the mobile version of the site use different pages (e.g. having an ‘About’ page with columns and shortcodes for the desktop theme and a separate simpler version on mobile).

3. I have to re-format all of my pages to not use the shortcodes. This would not be ideal!

Any suggestions warmly welcomed.

Many thanks, Tim.

pedrodonkey

Hi Tim,

The shortcodes are actually built into your desktop theme’s functions.php (or other depending on the complexity) file so it is expected that they don’t show up on the mobile theme.

Rather than me pulling apart (if i had a copy of your original desktop theme) the theme which has the shortcodes in it, an easier solution would be to contact the developer of the theme and ask them how to integrate their shortcodes into mobiTheme. Depending on the complexity of the theme it could be as simple as copying the shortcodes from one themes functions.php file to the other but i can’t say for sure as i’ve not seen how it has been coded.

Let me know how you get along.

Cheers,

Peter

EDIT : I’ve just had a look at the theme, Tim. I’m not sure if you noticed that the 3.0 update had responsive design added to it? Your site doesn’t seem to be responsive so i’m not sure if you missed out on that update or if you decided not to use the theme’s responsive layout for mobile devices.
