Discussion on Monolith - WP theme for bloggers and professionals

39 comments found

Hi Bud,

Really like this but I do have a quick few questions please :-)

1) I need the homepage to be a cover image with words over them much like http://bonfirethemes.com/_monolith/2013/12/15/a-mobile-theme-for-bloggers-and-professionals/ but with no wording underneath?

2) Does this theme come with the dummy xml content?

3) How good does it look across multiple platforms, e.g. android, iOS, iPads, android tablets etc?

4) Are there any decent styles for links and buttons etc ?

Cheers and look forward to hearing from you. Rich

Hi,

How can I replace the standard wordpress comments with disqus so that when a user touches the ”...” comment icon in a post Disqus comments are loaded?

Thanks

BonfireThemes

Hi there.

You’d probably have to do it manually by replacing the comment form inside the div that has the “commentwrap” class.

Cheers.

Thanks…added the Disqus universal script in the comments.php and it looks great. Works really well with this Theme!

BonfireThemes

Good to hear! :)

Hi, love this theme, had a play around on the iPhone and it works fantastic. is it simple to swap the navigation menu /slider over to the other side ? just a personal preference. Thanks Mark

BonfireThemes

Glad you like it :) Changing the menu direction so it would slide from left to right is just a quick css change. Simple stuff, yeah. Shoot me an email through the form on my profile after making the purchase and I’ll guide you through it.

Cheers.

Hi, Im getting an error

Theme install failed. http://www.evernote.com/shard/s108/sh/e5944d7b-b54a-4857-a584-c1598c35f4ca/d70063bd8f8d60d9e8e9b46b794ee6c1

I followed the help file but I don’t see the theme folder in your files.

Can you help?

Thanks, Enda

BonfireThemes

Hi there.

You’re trying to install in the entire downloaded package. You need only install the theme zip file called Monolith.zip. It’s in the same folder as the documentation folder.

Cheers.

Hi, Thanks for that. I have another question. How do I load your template data?

Thanks, Enda

BonfireThemes

Send me an email through the contact form on my profile and I’ll send you the demo site data.

Cheers.

Can I include the WP audio player in my posts? Thanks!

BonfireThemes

Depends on what you mean by WP audio. It’s a theme like any other, so if whatever you’re trying to do works on the default WP themes, it’ll work on Monolith as well.

Hi looks great! Some pre-sale questions:

1. There doesn’t seem to be a table shortcode in the demo? I need to have tables

2. Is there some sort of visual builder?

Thanks

BonfireThemes

Hi there, thanks for the interest.

You can always use a shortcode plugin of your liking. But no visual builder, indeed.

Cheers.

Hello! Is it possible to insert advertisement block at the bottom of web page in your theme? Thanks!

BonfireThemes

Hi there. If you know how to edit the theme files then absolutely. Nothing in the theme prevents you from adding anything.

Hello! I purchased this awesome theme. but I had a problem. I installed “Monolith.zip” file. but my site is not same your sample page.

My site is www.jagijang.com. if you have a time, please reply me. Regaeds.

BonfireThemes

Hi there. If you’re after the demo site’s sample data, send me an email through the form on my profile and I’ll send you the xml.

Cheers.

BonfireThemes

Nevermind, I saw you sent an email as well. I’ll reply to that shortly.

Hello, i’m having some issues because my main theme is Steam: http://themeforest.net/item/steam-responsive-retina-review-magazine-theme/5734392 and this use a different kind of post type. I need Monolith shows different post types, how can i do it?

thanks!

BonfireThemes

Hi there. Post types are built into themes, you’ll have to ask the other theme’s author how you can move it over.

Cheers.

Hello, great theme! Can i have the dummy xml content please? email: ryannmcrain@gmail.com . Thank you!

BonfireThemes

Glad you like it :) And sure thing; I just sent it over.

Hi,

A very nice and fresh design. I have a pre-sales question. Is it possible to have unlimited posts with infinite scrolling on the home page instead of pagination ? I need to make my blog posts my home page.

Thanks,

BonfireThemes

Hi there, glad you like it :)

No infinite scroll for now, however I’m on the verge of making sure several of my themes work with Jetpack’s infinite scroll. It’s a bit of a hectic time for me right now (I’m moving) so I can’t make promises as far as precise dates go, however a few weeks from now I hope to have this done.

Cheers.

Hi There

A pre-sales question, can I have more than 1 featured post in the blog, I like the idea of having all the blog posts listed full-screen across the page like the featured post. Is this possible?

Kind Regards Alfred

BonfireThemes

Hi Alfred. That is not possible out of the box and would require substantial modifications.

Cheers.

Hi, forgot to ask when we were chatting does the theme come with the XML demo/dummy content please?

richpearsonwd

Thank you will do, and if i need some small bits of help/pointers etc where should I ask on here?

BonfireThemes

I offer item support via email.

richpearsonwd

ok thanks, just didn’t want to keep bothering you like last night, will purchase install and take it from there bud

Theme all bought bud, if you could email me the dummy data import I would be most grateful :-) to: richard.pearson@me.com

BonfireThemes

Done. Cheers.

On the index page with a posts list i can see that .featured-image takes only a half

But on the post page .featured-image takes 100% of a screen and it is not undersandable that you can find post content only after scrolling .featured-image Q: where to edit css to make post template look the same as index page, where .featured-image takes only 50% of browser window?
BonfireThemes

Use something like this:

.featured-image { height:50%; } #sitewrap-single { top:50%; } .title-author-date-wrapper { top:25%; }
oleghohlov83

Thnks #sitewrap-single { top:50%; } works for me as i whant!

Displays the excerpt

Why when i write an excerpt i cant see it in expected area expected area: 1. expected area:2.
BonfireThemes

There are no excerpts on the blog index. Titles only. The design doesn’t allow for it.

Hiya,

If I need to extend the feedback/contact form that you have added, I assume I need to edit the templates: page-contact.php & contact-send.php?

My question is that I need to add a couple more fields, a text field and a dropdown field, what lines do I edit and where please to make this work…

Cheers Rich

BonfireThemes

Hi there. The form was really meant to be barebones. If you want a more comprehensive solution, there are a ton of free plugins out there that can be expanded upon quite wildly.

Cheers.

richpearsonwd

hey bud, totally appreciate that, contact form 7, or gravity, but making them responsive is a pain, all I really wanted to do is extend your form, which I can do in page-contact.php, but what do I need to add in to the send.php to make it work?

BonfireThemes

It’s not a single change, it would have to be in multiple places. The contact form itself as well as as contact-send.php; Not as simple and quick as you might think.

There are responsive forms out there as well though, just google “wordpress responsive contact form” for example. Here are just a few examples: https://wordpress.org/plugins/mn-contact-form/ https://wordpress.org/plugins/responsive-contact-form/

Hello, I have a site with a theme wordpress desktop. I can use your theme but does not interfere with the desktop version? sorry for my bad english

BonfireThemes

Hi. It just pulls the post content and simply displays it on Monolith, which mobile users are directed to.
