Hi, are the slider height customizable?, because i’m expecting to buy this theme and I see a very big slider photos.

Thanks in advance!

You can set a different header image for all pages created via “Pages > Add New”. And for all other pages such as single pages etc you can set a general header image.

Kind regards

Hi, there are the possibility to add a progress bar and tables into shortcodes in some way, or with some code?? thanks in advance!

quitenicestuff

Hi sonhiha,

There’s styling in place for regular HTML tables, I’m afraid there isn’t a progress bar shortcode though.

Kind regards

Hi just one or two pre sales questions please? 1. Is there only one Home page style to chose from i.e. full width slider? Is there a boxed width option with something like nivo slide? 2. If no content is added to them are the 5 Green navigation blocks below the main pic removed automatically (as dont want them there :-) Thx!

quitenicestuff

Hi Alzybob,

Thanks for your interest.

1.) There isn’t but it’s simple to change the width of the slider with a little bit of custom CSS (I’d be happy to advise how to do this via support)

2.) Yes!

Kind regards

Alzybob

Thanks, with such a helpful offer reply how can I resist to purchase. Thank you.

Hi,

Is this theme e-commerce ready?

What is the process when students click the ‘Apply’ button?

Thanks, Damien

quitenicestuff

Hi Damien,

Thanks for your interest.

I’m afraid the theme isn’t ecommerce ready.

The “Apply” button can be linked to anything, if you want to create an application form you can created a custom form using the “Contact Form 7” plugin which the theme is compatible with.

Kind regards

Hello, I am creating the teachers section (style #2) and the school I am working with has a lot of departments. I want to be able to filter the teachers by grade (category) but I am unable to find this option. Please help. Thanks!

quitenicestuff

Hi only1diamari,

I’m afraid there’s no category taxonomy for the teachers post type. It’s possible to enable by editing some of the code though, feel free to open a support ticket if you’d like me to advise: http://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/

Kind regards

Hi I have one main pre purchase question about the Course system. Is it possible to change the terms so instead of words like ‘Course’ or ‘Program’ we could use ‘Theme’ or ‘Year’. Love the setup just need to be able to edit the language a bit. Thanks.

quitenicestuff

Hi danielnorris,

Thanks for your interest.

This is possible, but you’ll need to edit the names in the PHP code.

It should be fairly simple to do though.

Kind regards

Does this theme support Arabic? and right to left design?

quitenicestuff

Hi osmansafdar,

Thanks for your interest.

The theme support Arabic script language, but there’s no RTL design, there is a right or left sidebar option though.

Kind regards

Just bought your theme for the built-in course manager (a big plus over the last theme I tried) — but I’m having troubles with it. First off, single course pages won’t show when I click “View Post”. Looks like a missing page/404. Any ideas?

Also, I am working with a school that has many “Program types” (english, mathematics, forestry) and for each of those there are several classes that fall under the program. Could you help me through editing the PHP on the Course page template so it will display only subsequent courses that relate to a specific program type I declare?

There must be a way to make the PHP call for only certain custom fields… otherwise what is the point of collecting this information on the individual course listings?

Thanks in advance.

Hi mondomediaworks,

Thanks for purchasing!

Could you open a support ticket with your website URL included so I can take a look please: http://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/

Kind regards

mondomediaworks

Thanks for the quick response. I opened a ticket last night but the site is in dev, so I have it hidden currently. If there is a secure way to send you login info, I will be happy to do that.

quitenicestuff

Hi mondomediaworks,

Sure you can post them in the ticket, just make it’s private as opposed to public.

Kind regards

Hi there,

Can you please advise on child theme creation for this theme. I see the theme is updated a bit, and worried that we will loose our custom work on any update.

I notice also you advised on the removal of the CPT “events”. Can you please advise where I will find those few lines to remove, and will they stay removed once the theme is updated again?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my pre purchase questions before, in which led us to purchase this theme.

quitenicestuff

Hi fullercreative,

It’s possible but you’ll need to modify the header.php file. For more help please open a support ticket: http://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com

Kind regards

fullercreative

Thanks for that.. I found it earlier in the header.php… no issue there. What I would be interested in is if possible to register a widget in that location. Might be a nice update.

quitenicestuff

Hi fullercreative,

It’s possible but you’ll need to add this functionality yourself as customization work like this would fall outside the scope of support.

Kind regards

JR_ Purchased

Hi,

i bought this very nice theme an i would like to use the picture witch is used as the “Default Header Picture” in the Preview

( http://themes.quitenicestuff.com/parkcollegewp/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/23_demo_image.jpg )

Is this file included or must i purchase (where?) the picture somewhere else?

Thanks!

quitenicestuff

Hi JR_

Thanks for purchasing!

None of the demo images are included in the theme package but you can indeed purchase them separately from PhotoDune if you wish.

Here’s the link to the one you’re interested in: http://photodune.net/item/discussion-of-papers/2644615

If you have any other questions open a support ticket and I’ll be happy to help: http://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/

Hi there,

I love the look of the theme, very clean, and would suit a school nicely. However when I go to look further into your theme, you have used the H1 title for the logo. Any reason you didn’t utilise better SEO practices and use the H1 on the page titles instead?

Is this something that is easy to update o the theme files to change the page titles from H2 into H1, and then removing the H1 from the logo.

Seems a shame not to use this theme because of this.

Thanks.

quitenicestuff

Hi mcollins,

Thanks for your interest.

It would be fairly simple to switch around the h1 and h2 tags in the theme files, we’ll look into doing this in the next update.

Kind regards

Hi, i have a problem with plug in bbpress, if use ParkCollege template i don’t see and i can’t add topic and reply for my create forum. Can i help me? If switch to Twenty Twelve template, forum topic and reply work properly.

Thanks

Hi forium,

Could you open a support ticket with your website URL included please: http://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/

Hi there, I notice on a question above on the H! tags being used as the logo. Please could you point me to the file where this needs to be removed so that page titles are using H1.

Also, please could you point me to the file where I can change the responsive breakpoint for the mobile navigation to start. At the moment you have it 767px , I would like to change this to 1050px since we have all the menu bar filled out, and looks shockingly ugly when the menu is responsive under 1050px.

Hi there:

I recently updated my Wordpress to the latest version and since then the homepage slider is has a huge space above it in Google Chrome browser

Please advise how I can fix this?

This is my site – http://centreofexcellencezw.org

Thanks

Emma

quitenicestuff

Hi Emma,

I don’t think this is being caused by updating WordPress, it looks like your slideshow images are too small.

Open a support ticket and I’ll be happy to help: http://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/

Hi,

Can I use Learndash plugin with your team. How does the user profiles looks like.

Thank You, rajathe

quitenicestuff

Hi rajathe,

Thanks for your interest.

I haven’t tested the Learndash plugin with ParkCollege, but if it’s compatible with the latest version of WordPress it should function fine.

Kind regards

Hello,

I have written in their support forum but received no reply, I need to categorize the courses.

I modified the taxonomy courses and now I can add categories, now I need to create a page that allows me to view the courses by category.

function create_post_type_course() {

register_post_type('course',

array(

'labels' => array(

'name' => __( 'Courses', 'qns' ),

'singular_name' => __( 'Course', 'qns' ),

'add_new' => __('Add New', 'qns' ), '

add_new_item' => __('Add New Course' , 'qns' ) ),

'public' => true, 'menu_position' => 5, '

menu_icon' => get_template_directory_uri() .'/images/admin/course-icon.png',

'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => __('course','qns') ),

'supports' => array( 'title','thumbnail'),

));

register_taxonomy(

'course_categories', 'course',

array(

'labels' => array(

'name' => 'Courses Categories', '

add_new_item' => 'Add New Category',

'new_item_name' => "New Category" ),

'show_ui' => true, 'show_tagcloud' => false,

'hierarchical' => true,

'hasArchive' => true

));

}

add_action( 'init', 'create_post_type_course' );

I hope you can help me, in my opinio categorize courses should be your default template.

Hi quitenicestuff

We are interested in purchasing the theme but would like to use Revolution Slider instead of the slider supplied.

How easy would it be to ‘swap’ over the current slider to Revolution Slider?

Could it be done easily within the code? We have a sould basic knowledge of WordPress and its files. Could you explain to us how it could be done if we purchased the theme?

Also, we would like the heading content (menu, social icons, etc) to be in a white band across the width of the browser (ie. the slider does not appear behind at either side) – is this easily achievable by basic changes to the styles (and would you be able to talk us through it?)

Many thanks

quitenicestuff

Hi centraldesigns,

Thanks for your interest.

Yes if you have a good understand of PHP/HTML/CSS switching out Flexslider for Revolution Slider should be relatively simple.

I can’t do the customization for you but I’m happy to advise what files you’ll need to change via support.

Regarding customizing the header, again this wouldn’t be difficult if you know HTML/CSS. Again I’m happy to advise what files you need to change but you’ll need to make the changes yourself.

Kind regards

Hi Quitenicestuff,

Can I use Memberpress with the Park College theme and create a login (preferentially on the first page) for people to access password protected member-only material?

I really like your theme, but I must be able to create password protected areas (preferentially with unique logins) or it will not work for my application.

Thanks in advance, Eva

quitenicestuff

Hi Eva,

Thanks for your interest.

I’ve not tested the theme with the MemberPress plugin, but if it’s compatible with the latest version of WordPress it should work without any problems.

You can password protect content using the built in WordPress functionality though :)

Kind regards
