Hello, I have 2 questions about this theme: 1) Can registered members submit new videos (with embed code)?

2) Does the theme automatically grabs info from youtube, such as video’s description, duration and tags? Or member has to add this info?

Thanks.

Hi,

To achieve this you’d have to incorporate a plugin like Gravity Forms which allows users to send in content to the site.

2. The theme grabs the videos from a custom meta box which allows users to input the embed code or the video link. The user would still have to enter in the tags, id and description for the video itself though.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

One more question: I see the video’s url is site.com/videotitle. Could it be changed to site.com/videos/videocategory/videotitle instead? Thanks.

Hi,

There are multiple ways to display your post urls, this is controlled by your WordPress permalink settings, or by adjusting your site’s .htaccess file (for advanced control).

Thanks

Hi, nice design

Can I add banner on the top, after logo? Thanx

Hi vm7

That would involve some custom changes to the code as it is not a standard feature.

Hi!

I cannot figure out how to create the /category/xxxx pages that show all the posts (videos) of that category + sidebar, etc.

I can see it in the demo but I don’t know how to create them. I have tried everything. Can you please help me?

Thanks

Hi Alonso,

We’ve added the relevant categories to our menu via Appearance > Menus

We also have our category permalink structure set to / category / which is how we get the /category/ part of the url to display.

Thanks

Hi mdiby

To gain access to our forums you need to login with your Purchase code which is in your confirmation of theme purchase email.

In your theme download is a pdf file which documents how you can setup the home page.

Once you have logged in to our forums will be able to help out quickly and accurately.

Hi, I already bought your template. I can’t open the documentation file. Any solution for this? Thanks!

Hi Toni

If you use your purchase code (found in the confirmation of purchase email from TF) to login to Oboxthemes.com you will be able to access the documentation from there.

Does this version come with the ocmx plugin ?? or you have to buy it from your site ?

obox

Hi,

OCMX comes packaged with the theme and is 100% included in the purchase. No need to buy a separate pack from our site.

Dave

Hi, I really like your theme and I’m thinking about buying it. One question: can you have the archives without sidebar? Thanks!

Yep, just drag in the archives as a widget and it will work :)

Hi, I have this theme and it’s being hosted at HostGator.com. The documentation under “Adding a header (main) image to your post” states that I need to make sure the permission is set to 777. HostGator says this setting is a security risk. Moreover, the folder that is supposed to have the required setting is no where to be found!?

I’m also getting the following error message…

Broken Themes The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template. motion-picture-wordpress-video-blogging-theme Stylesheet is missing.

Cool looking theme. I want it to work.

Thanks.

Hi Gameson,

You may be using the incorrect install file. When you download the zip file from TF it should contain two zips, one containing the /motionpicture/ theme folder, the other containing the Motion Picture PSD files. You must use the one which contains the /motionpicture/ folder.

Thanks

I also bought this theme and i have got the same problem. What can i do?

Soundblog, I’m running on an iMac with OS X 10 .6.7, using Safari 5.0.5. As you can see by the time stamp on my earlier post, I’ve been waiting more than 8 hour for a reply. This is the first time I’ve used a Wordpress blog and of course Themeforest. I’m at a loss.

I’ve the way this theme looked and worked when I was reviewing everything available for a video blog. Clean, simple, elegant. I just want it to work.

Hi Gameson7,

You need to login to our forums to get quicker response times. We cannot provide our best support via ThemeForest and we prefer to track questions using our forums.

To login to our forums you need to use the Purchase Code that you got in your confirmation of Purchase email when buying your theme from ThemeForest.

Dave

I did it like you said but it doesn’t work. The theme ist broken.

I uploaded a picture to see where the theme is installed.

Hi

Can you provide us with a screenshot / link to the site so we can see what is broken?

Sorry, this is not possible because the noting happens after activitating. There is only a white window.

Now it works :)

Another question. Is it possbile to show more text in the Slider than the standard? And it is possbile to put the text field more to the left? There is a lot of space between text and video?

By the way : a great theme!!

obox
obox Author

We do automatically shorten the text for the slider. If you could please login to our forums, then we can explain which code changes need to be done to extend the text.

The space between the video and text may be down to sizing. If your videos are taller than they are wide, and you’re using the oEmbed option, your videos will appear thin and tall, I’d suggest using the Embed (Video Object) field instead.

Thanks

Hello Thank you for your template. It is beautiful. Prompt please where I can download the installation guide or how do I open this file – Motion Picture Dokumentation -? Thank you please send me using manual if it possible – faaaantik@gmail.com

Hi Fantik

The documentation PDF should be in the ZIP file that you got with your purchase?

Alternatively you can login to Obox using your Purchase Code (in your confirmation of purchase mail) and view the docs and support forums there.

I’m looking for a video blog template. There are several that are comparable to yours in appearance however I like the looks of the strong support you provide. Do you plan to update this when necessary, or will I be stuck with WordPress 3.1 forever?

Hi Qwertman,

The WordPress version requirement is a minimum, you’ll be able to update your WP version when ever necessary. Theme updates are also done automatically when ever there is a new version available.

Thanks

Hello

First off, EXCELLENT template. It was exactly what i was looking for!

I have a quick question:

Is there a way to either replace the movies in the columns below with thumbnails?

I don’t want the videos in the columns below to play at the same time as the main video.

I’d like for people to have to clock on them and go to the main entry window to play them.

Right now if you click on them they’ll play on top of each other, which gets confusing.

Is there a way to enable thumbnails instead of the actual videos in the homepage columns? I thought there was an option for that in the post window, but it doesn’t work.

thanx so much

Todd

Hey Todd,

Yes there is, if you update your theme to the latest version under Theme Options > Update, you will see a new option in the Four Column Widget which allows you to select either the video or thumbnails to display in the home page.

You will, however, have to upload a screenshot for each post though.

Thanks

toddkelley

I updated the template (Motion Picture 1.1.2) and I am running Wordpress 3.1.1

I tried both putting a thumbnail in the “motion picture options” and then the “featured image” option.

http://toddkelley.net/postpicture.png

But I still get the clickable vimeo video on the homepage.

http://toddkelley.net/frontpage.png

this wouldn’t be that much of a problem if you could only play one video at a time.

I must be missing something. Eveything else works great. Please advise on what i’m doing wrong.

Thanks!

Hi Todd,

Have you set a featured image for your posts using the Main Image field under the Motion Picture Options panel or the WordPress featured image function? You’ll need to have set a featured image for the post otherwise the theme will not have a thumbnail to display.

If you have set one, and they’re not showing, you can use these measures in order to get it to work:

This is a fantastic looking theme! Going to buy :)
