How many categories of posts can you display on the homepage in additional to the posts that are on the featured slider?

You can display as many categories as you like on the home page. Each category listing can show between 4 and 12 posts.

Hope that makes sense,

Question – Can I change the color of the header container? And if so, where can I do that?

Thanks for a great clean looking theme.

Hi Corib

Would it be possible to post your question in our forums so we can give you some advice RE the header colour?

You will need your Purchase Code to login. To get your purchase code you need to login to ThemeForest and go to the “Downloads” tab, you will see a link below the theme title called “License Certificate” http://cl.ly/7thr.

The .txt file in that download contains your “Item Purchase Code” which you can then use to login to the Obox forums.

Quick question, does this theme work the same way with videos uploaded into the wp media manager?

Hi Grs,

Videos work with external players such as Vimeo, YouTube and Viddler, they are far superior to using a custom video player.

Thanks

Can I use java script to embed videos. Also if my videos are stored on Amazon S3 and distributed using cloud services can I use your template. What I would like to do is use your template as strictly a podcast solution for video placement on the itunes store

Hi Donna,

As long as the video player has some sort of embed code, you can use it with our templates.

Hi Just Bought it, and I install as says in the documentation and after installed this messenge came out: Warning: fopen(/home/linksite/public_html/wp-content/themes/motion-picture-wordpress-video-blogging-theme2/style.css) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/linksite/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4339

Hi Guifaioli,

Inside the main zip file that you downoad from Themeforest there is a file called mothion-picture_single.zip, that is the file you’ll need to use to install the theme.

I’m very interested in this theme, but I noticed that the one youtube video on the “live preview” (Skrillex) is not styled in the same manner as the vimeo videos. Is this the only way the youtube videos will show? The crammed Youtube player navigation looks bad. Can the Youtube videos be styled like the vimeo videos on the frontpage? Other wise this is a great looking theme. Great Work !

Hi Jeremy

The visual styling of the page is determined by the video host themselves. Vimeo seems to do a better job with small videos compared to YouTube which tries to squash it all in.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Hi! Congratulations for this template. I have 3 questions : - This template got a contact form ? - Can I put the search box in the header ? - It is possible to put a slider in category page ? Thanks!

Hi Abedi,

I’ll answer your questions quickly.

1. You’ll need to use a plugin for this. 2. You would need to customize the template to allow for this function. 3. You can get the slider into a specific page with a specific category.

Will this theme add videos if I coded in jwplayer or flowplayer? I’d rather not use youtube, vimeo etc.

Thanks

Hi SoFlo

You can use your own flv’s you will just need to manually create the embed code, here is a site you can use to do so. Once you’ve done that you can just use the Video Object field when adding a post.

How could I change the video size in the four colomn widget? Because I like to fact that videos can be played on frontpage but they are too small.

Hi Luciendub

This will involve some custom modifications in which case I’d recommend using one of our Approved Modifiers.

Hello,

we are a small video production company based in Berlin, Germany. Currently we are looking for a new Wordpress theme for our Web site. We want to keep the site simple, but it has to meet some key requirements. Our main content is videos, preferably self-hosted, 720p. The requirements are as follows:

1. Correct and stable site presentation and navigation on PC, Mac and most newest smartphones, incl. iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Full support of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.

2. Stutter-free playback of our films on modern computers and smartphones. The films should be self-hosted or embedded Vimeo videos with fullscreen playback option.

3. Full support of SEO , with a unique search engine metatext for each page.

4. Preferably, but not necessary, HTML5 -based designs.

We like your Motion Picture WP theme very much. We would purchase it in case the requirements listed above are fulfilled. Please let us know if you think your theme may suit our needs.

Thank you in advance!

J. Adrian, Reaction Shot Filmproduktion GbR

Hi J

I am so sorry for the late response.

1. Our themes work in all modern browsers and render well on smart phones and tablets. For a better for mobile experience we’d suggest purchasing Obox Mobile though.

2. Motion Picture requires that you use a 3rd party host such as YouTube or Vimeo however as long as you have embed code for your video then it should be good to go.

3. This is integrated.

4. Our themes use CSS3 and clean methods of HTML . We are not yet coding in HTML5 as we are waiting for it to become more mainstream in terms of popularity. We have to cater for all users here :)

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know. If you want to you can mail be directly: david at obox.co.za

hi guys,

first of all, nice template. i’m looking for a homepage nearly looking like this. before buying this template, i have to know if this template supports some features i’ll need. this will be the first website i’ll create, so please apologize some requests.

1) i already read that it is possible to use thumbnails instead of embedded videos in the preview-categories. by clicking on the thumbnails, will the video be shown as the main video?

2) in addition to the video-blog, i’ll need a separate text blog, which should not appear on the main site but should located as a “point” in the main navigation under the logo. does it support the wordpress software?

thanks for your support.

Before I purchase, can you make sub categories in each category? Say my categories were cities and I want sub categories of neighborhoods – will the drop down menue reflect the sub categories?

Please could you tell me how and where I can modify the color of the submenu text items in the nav? I need white for main nav but then I can’t see anything when I display subnav items since the window is white as well. Thanks for your assistance!

Hi there

I’m using the Motion Picture theme and coming up with an issue. I have drop-menu menus but they’re covered up by the video embeds in the home slider or blog posts.

I’ve tried accessing the support forums, but I can’t seem to find a solution or a way to post a query there.

Also, is there an easier way to adjust the highlight colours in the comments and the links?

Regards, Sid

Hi Stareintothesun

In order to fix that issue you need use the <iframe> embed code and also add “wmode=transparent” to the end of the link.

I’m having trouble finding the themeforest login on your website?

But if you can address my issue on here, that would also be fine :)

It seems I’m not able to use http://onemansblog.com/2007/10/03/wordpress-homepage-ads-only-after-the-first-article/ this nifty bit of code to get adsense below the first post only, where exactly would i need to place this code?

Thank you in advance! Jack.

You need to upload your own logo. You can do so via Theme Options > General in your WordPress admin area.

I like both your video these – Azione and Motion Picture but have couple of questions

Regarding Both: DO you plan either of the themes responsive?? Do you plan to add bbPress support (I plan to make forum-blog site)??

Regarding Azione Is it possible to add regular sized videos since ALL videos wont be 940px wide

Regards

obox
obox Author

Hi Vella,

There are no immediate plans to make these themes responsive, but you can use Obox Mobile to enhance the experience for mobile devices.

You can use any video size with the themes and they will resize them to fit the posts automatically. Even if they’re smaller than 940px

I cannot get Vimeo and Youtube videos to work with the “Motion Picture Options” in the post (I tried providing the link and also the embed code). Please advise. I am guessing that oEmbed is not working on my site?

Thanks!!

obox Author

Hi 742,

I would suggest using the classic embed code method to add videos. If oEmbed is not working for your videos, there could be an issue with your WordPress install.

So as I say, try adding a video with the regular code:
