Karolina

Awesome responsive theme, glws! ;)

dynamicpress

Thank you :):).
Karolina

Very cool but the load time is long on Firefox

dynamicpress

Thanks :).
Regarding load time. I check this and really is not bad.
Yslow on frontpage (very large with lot of images in slideshow) is page range 69). On another pages is even better.
84 HTTP requests and page size < 600kB is in my opinion OK .
PageSpeed results (rank 78) are not bad also.
Karolina

Nice theme! Is there any type of portfolio page with sorting capabilities? Also, any type of masonry options for portfolio and/or blog? Thanks

dynamicpress

Thanks :).
Sorry at the moment no. But maybe we add this option by next upgrade. We are working on it.

Karolina

Hello,

A very beautiful theme that would be perfect with :

1- “share this” and related items available in a blog post 2- newsletter subscription form 3- a customer wall (logos)

On the other hand, bubbles / testimonials are smart and displayed in a very designed way.

I wondered if :

4- I could post blog items without any king of photo, text only

5- If it could be used to show infopreneur stuff

Anyway, hope you will make tons of sales.

Regards,

Roger

Thanks :).

1. Our theme have built in custom Social API You can via admin panel decide if should be displayed on every page or only on selected. In our demo social API is turn on only on selected pages. Please take a look on this ink.
http://openspace2.dynamicpress.eu/?p=2395
On the bottom you have all social buttons (you can also disable one or more for example pinterers if you dont use it)
2. Customer subsription form is not included but our theme is compatible practicaly with all right code plugins so it is no problem use 3th part widget for it.
3. We have not built in customers wall but you can use for this purpose slideshow or carousel in content
4. Yes you can post blog item only with text. For example you can don’t select feaure image or use post format aside (is text only).
5. Sory but i don’t understund what you mind (my poor eanglish :() Please exlain with another words maybe:).

Karolina

Lovely theme! Do you have a better example of the gallery/portfolio pages capabilities? Currently I cannot see the gallery page contents in Firefox. Thanks

dynamicpress

Thanks :). Did you mind Gallery page http://openspace2.dynamicpress.eu/?page_id=2681 ?
Now should be ok. Simple by next upgrade some images are missing and and we have not noticed it.
Thank you for your attention and I apologize.

Karolina, I am still having problem seeing any gallery samples on gallery page? I want to be able to see layout style and capabilities before I make decision to purchase.

Very nice =)

dynamicpress

Thanks a lot :):). Karolina

Love the theme… Observation worth mentioning ;0) Theme will NOT LOAD via wordpress backend upload zip feature no matter how you boost php.ini Theme MUST be loaded via FTP

dynamicpress

Many thanks :). Regarding load via wordpress backend.
files of our program is quite extensive (ca 11.5 MB even as a zip), mainly because of the large number of icons and patterns (over 600 icons in several different colors and sizes and over 50 patterns) built-in the theme.
So in some cases (to small post_max_size or upload_max_filesize in php.ini) traditional method of installation via FTP will be indispensable if you can not enlarge the above-mentioned values.

Karolina

Karolina, I am having trouble adding shortcodes via your tinymce… I can’t find where to add lastest projects or blog post codes, not finding adding widget style boxes etc.. Can you tell me how please?

Or do we have to copy your demo text code and manually change post id in each ???

Thanks

dynamicpress

Hi,
Please start discusion on support forum or simply send me email on studio@dynamicpress.eu. Here is very uncomfortable paste code samples, screenshots, etc.
I’m sure that we quickly explain all the problems :).
Karolina

just emailed you :)

dynamicpress

Thanks,
I have already got it :).
No worry. We can handle it :).

Karolina

Awweeee, You are sweet, thank you :)

Allright…. I have been playing with this theme for about 8 hours now…IT IS A GREAT THEME but it lacks in several ways…and that is really too bad!

I am writing this for those who aren’t too familiar with wordpress, CSS , or PHP …

I have did 2 new install on HOSTMONSTER and had a few issues after uploading data…Then I did another fresh install on GODADDY and it was much better…

Instructions Tutorial There isn’t much to it unfortunately, mostly focused on sliders set up but still not very obvious.

It doesn’t tell you how to set up the fonts URL in your google font options, it’s auto set to use fontsquirel… And I haven’t seen google font used this way before so if you don’t know how or test which URL you need to paste, well good luck…

It doesn’t include several shortcodes that they use in the demo, such as the front page ” latest project ” etc…, You don’t have that option in text editor, and you don’t have it in Shortcode PDF …Talking about shortcode PDF , that is mostly where you need to go copy the code you want….weird…I have gone back and forth with Karolina about shortcodes but when I mentioned the ” latest project ” on the front page she said she didn’t know what I was talking about…weird again…and I didn’t hear back… what I was refering to is the code they include their demo content page :
Latest Projects postid=”2395” color=”#E4754F”]/one_fourthdpthumb postid=”2403” color=”#E4754F”one_fourth/one_fourthdpthumb postid=”2428” color=”#E4754F” [clearboth] Where you get the DPTHUMB POST ID shortcode I haven’t found, if someone else figures it out please share

Widgets shown on demo aren’t part of upload content….

Etc…

I am really bummed, this theme is AWESOME but 8 hours messing around just trying to figure it out a little on your own isn’t acceptable really…

Themes can look great on visual but they have to be user friendly and include proper documentation….

Good Luck

Hi,
We really would to help you in setup but sorry if you expect all your problems will be solved in a few minutes you overestimate our abilities. There is such thing as time difference. Not all of our colleagues be reached at the same time. We will all do our best to solve your problems but your question first fell approx 6 hours ago.
Please some patience.
Regarding details questions. When it comes to support for Google fonts we decided on a way Including them by paste the URL of font actually given by Google fonts site. In our opinion it is maybe not convenient as hard coded in the theme Google font links but is undependence of any changes in Google font directories.
Regarding shortcodes used in demo. Yes it is only one shortcode used in demo not included at the moment in documetation.
 [dpthumb postid="2395" color="#E4754F"]

Is really easy to use (you need only declare post id and overlay color for thumb mask).
You ask me about ‘Last post” shortcode and it was cause of confusion.

I do not know what widget you mean writing “Widgets shown on demo aren’t part of upload content….” ?
Overall, I think that all your problems are to be solved. Except that you have to give a chance :).



Karolina

Really like the theme and close to purchasing. Quick question. Is it easy to add a signup form to the slider?

dynamicpress

Thanks.:)
I think that yes.Two of three frontpage sliders buuilt-in the theme support content slides so it should be possible. I must install plugin for signup form to check if it works to be sure 100%.
Karolina

Thanks, if you could pls check that and let me know that would be great :)

dynamicpress
I have check it with Contact Form 7. It works.
Please take a look on this demo site:
http://www.openspace11.dynamicpress.eu/?page_id=2547
This is sample with flex slider
And on front page http://www.openspace11.dynamicpress.eu you have example with Revolution slider.
Of course form is not styled now. It is just test only.
Karolina

great, thanks for that. Appreciate you testing it for me.

It’s true responsive theme. Can I zoom in-out on mobile phone? The new official theme twenty twelve works so. I

dynamicpress

Responsivity in our theme is realized only via CSS and media querry.
So is possible that not all mobile devices speciffic functions are supported. I must check what twenty twelve theme (what script is used for this function). Maybe we can implement it in ouer theme also.
But any way our theme is responsive now.

Karolina

dynamicpress

We don’t use fully bootsrap framework in our theme.
However i think that it is additional functionality and not only bootsrap powered themes can be named “responsive”.
Karolina

Default-user

Of course your theme is responsive. I think expanding screen on mobile device doesn’t mean responsive. I only hope that function. That means I am able to see screen in big letters. I hope your theme do so as soon as possible.

I bought your theme but it comes with revolution slider 1.2 … revslider is now version 2. Will you be updating this?

dynamicpress

Please write me email on studio@dynamicpress.eu.
I send you package with latest version jQuery Revolution slider plugin. It work fine with our theme also.
Will be included by next update in theme package.
Karolina

Hello Karolina,
Another excellent job!
As I understood this is not Gantry, I’m right or no? And one more question, as I understood goggle fonts are hardcoded somewhere in theme files, so to add Cyrillic subset, I,ll need only to replace the font string with another original link from Goggle fonts containing the support of Cyrillic letters, is this true?
Is it possible to completely disable any sliders on home page?
Good luck with sales

dynamicpress

Thanks :).
Yes. You are right :). This theme is not Gantry.
I like Gantry but I think that Gantry is generally a litle bit to complicated for average WP users. And current Gantry for Wordpress is not satisfactory and definitely not keep up with the version for Joomla. New version will be published in few months and this is for me to long :(.
But if you are interested I have Gantry version of this theme also :).
Reagarding Google fonts. No Google fonts are not hardcode in theme. You need only copy link to Google fonts from Google fonts directory (with right subsets etc) in unput field in Openspace admin panel.
You can use up to four Google fonts in the theme (without editing theme files).
I decide for this solution to give more freedom to adapt selected Google font familly to needs of different languages.
Karolina

Is there a way to turn off the page titles on all pages?

dynamicpress
I think it is easy to do via css.
Please put for example
.page hgroup h2 {display:none!important}
in to the field Custom CSS in tab Layout in OpenSpace admin panel. For me it works.

Karolina

One thought. Is it extremely difficult to create sliders with Revolution Slider the way you have it implemented using posts. You can’t see your slide as you are putting it together. The Revolution slider plugin shows you the slide and you can drag and drop images where you want them to appear and it’s much more user friendly. Other than that one glaring problem – you have a great theme!

dynamicpress

I know that worpdress plugin from themepunch has graphical interface for slide creation.
I tested it and I was wondering whether to use wordpress plugin or just a jQuery plugin. I was able to decide on one or the other and the difference in the price of a license is virtually none.
And use wordpress plugin from the point of view of my own work effort would be for me a lot better :).
It’s a matter of taste and made ??me a little uncomfortable to write about it because it’s a little bit like I’m evaluating the great work of programmers from themepunch. But me personally with wordpress plugin ineteface seemed impressive but still vague and complicated.
But allways is good get to know opinion of end users. Not in any case my own opinion must be right. Perhaps in the future we need to give user a chance to choose and built-in the theme both versions of plugin.
Thanks for nice words at all :).
Karolina
