... some more questions :

1. do you support galleries in page builder? (std wp galleries in a post)

2. how can we use the font awesome icons? (builder element / shortcode?)

3. can we add more google fonts (or even custom .woff/.otf fonts)? we might need more fonts for intl locales for non-english sites (like greek etc)

4. clients, testimonials etc are custom post types, right ?

5. will you support (pricing) tables in an update?

thx for being sooooo… patient & responsive :-)

SwiftIdeas

1 – You can use the gallery shortcode within a text block page builder asset. Will work just as it does in a post.

2 – You can either use the i tag with the class as shown on their website, or we have an icon shortcode which allows you to choose size, float, container options.

3 – All Google fonts are automatically loaded, and updated every 7 days. You could add custom fonts, but these would need to be added manually. We want to look into easier ways to use custom fonts without our framework soon.

4 – Yes.

5 – http://themes.swiftpsd.com/pinpoint/pricing-tables/

You’re welcome, hope that helps :)

1 & 3. so update your tf theme page, because galleries & fonts auto-update are strong selling points :-)

SwiftIdeas

Thanks for the tip :)

Hi, purchased the theme but cant seem to find the Revolution Slider. How do I get it?

SwiftIdeas

If you go to Appearance > Install Plugins, you should find it there ready to install.

Nice work on the promo vid!

Thanks dude! :)

Hi! Import demo content doesn’t seem to work for me – tried main one or digital agency one. Browse and upload file, keep default author and tick download attachments. Have waited for ~10 mins. I can see images in my uploads directory, however the importer just displays a blank page in the backend with “admin.php?import=wordpress&step=2” in the URL. Any ideas? Thanks! P.S. The .zip theme archive contains “__MACOSX” directory in the root of the archive, so my wordpress was struggling to install the theme, might want to remove it. UPDATE: The demo content has now come through on my site – you just need to be patient for sometime – false alarm! :)

SwiftIdeas

Glad it worked in the end! There is a lot of content in most of the demo content XMLs, so it will likely take a while.

The _MACOSX directory is something that the default Mac compressor adds, but that shouldn’t cause an issue with your upload? I’ll look into a way around this. Thanks for the note.

Hello…i added 5 team members and then used the page builder to add the team carousel…and i cannot find a place to check that the carousel rotates. only 4 team members show up. Can you point me in the right direction???

i am not sure what you mean when you say team carousel “asset”?? can you please give me some further direction?

actually i see in your instructions… To show your team members, you will need to create a page that includes either the “Team” or “Team Carousel” page builder assets. and that is exactly what i did.

SwiftIdeas

Apologies, I thought you were using the Team asset rather than the Team Carousel asset. I’m not sure what the issue is, but if you could please log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com then we’ll happily look into it and resolve it for you.

and one more thing…when you go to click on the “find out more” text and navigate to that page in the team members section…you loose the footer at the bottom. Again…am I must missing some setting some where?

this is the error message on the bottom of your demo site…in firefox

Fatal error: Call to undefined function next_post_link_plus() in /home/swiftpsd/themes/pinpoint/wp-content/themes/pinpoint/single-team.php on line 78

SwiftIdeas

Thanks for pointing that out, will get that fixed in v1.1. For now, open up single-team.php and replace line 76-81 with:

<div class="pagination-wrap portfolio-pagination full-width clearfix">

            <div class="nav-previous"><?php next_post_link(__('<i class="icon-chevron-left" /> <span class="nav-text">%link</span>', 'swiftframework'), '%title'); ?></div>
            <div class="nav-next"><?php previous_post_link(__('<span class="nav-text">%link</span><i class="icon-chevron-right" />', 'swiftframework'), '%title'); ?></div>

        </div>

and add this to the custom css box within theme options:

.single-team .pagination-wrap a:hover {
    text-decoration: none;
}

another question…in your demo site..you list 11 templates…and after an install…the only option available…default and full width showcase. again am i missing something?

SwiftIdeas

All of those templates are custom built, there aren’t any templates so to speak as it’s completely up to you how you set up your pages. Our templates are there to be used as a reference. If you would like the complete template to paste into a page, I’ll happily send it over.

Congrats on the excellent theme !!

But … I am experiencing the same issue Jake72 pointed out though: ‘Hi! Import demo content … my uploads directory’.

Steps taken:

1. WordPress 3.5 clean install

2. Followed your Pinpoint doc steps

Uploaded theme: success!
Attempt to import 'pinpoint_demo_content':
 assign posts to an existing user = Ed
 Checked: Download and import file attachments
 Result: I get 'Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded'.

Working from local server: Wamp server version 2.2 (Apache/2.4.2 (Win64) PHP/5.4.3)

Modified local php.ini to below values:
 post_max_size = 750M
 upload_max_filesize = 750M
 max_execution_time = 5000
 max_input_time = 5000
 memory_limit = 1000M
 (above modification was done after first Fatal error message was received)

Not sure what is still causing the problem

This looks pretty nice and I love the option of the languages. How is this option enabled? Can it be used without WPML? Thanks.

Hi, Ed,

I had another question about this template … Is it possible to make the portfolio/gallery items open in a Lightbox/prettyPhoto instead of going to a post page? I love the masonry look but would want to use it for images, not posts. I might just be missing this? Thanks.

*update, nevermind, I think I found it.

SwiftIdeas

Yes, you can choose the following thumbnail link options – http://cl.ly/MCEf

found another issue…using the team page from you demo xml the following page does not have the footer either

Have you replaced the code that I commented to you earlier?

Probably best if you log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com then I can keep track of it :)

Good job, is Youtube Video supported on Frontpage (slider) or just Vimeo?

SwiftIdeas

Yes, you can add YouTube instead if you like.

- Ed

Awesome theme will be considering for our next project too!:)

Who made the promo video its also awesome?.

Would love to use similar in a project i have on?

SwiftIdeas

Thanks! :)

We’re a team of two, and my business partner Kristian created the video. Took a lot of work, but we’re incredibly happy with it and the response has been brilliant :D

Hi Ed,

When is v1.1 going to be available? Any idea?

Default-user

Well, I will be purchasing the theme anyway, I love it. I just wanted to make sure the mentioned glitches are gone :)

But if there’s one feature I would really, really, REALLY want, it is the ability to upload a retina version of the logo.

And vertical tabs would be wonderful too :)

And I wonder who is responsible for the non profit demo (graphical) design? And, is he/she for hire?

Thanks! Tom

SwiftIdeas

Ok, well yes we will be fixing any known bugs with v1.1 next week.

Well, you’ll be happy to know that you can already do that :).. All you need to do is upload a retina size image, and it will resize to fit the container (and therefore be retina). If you have a small logo you may need a little custom css, but I can provide you with that.

We’ll add vertical tabs to the list for a future update.

He is my business partner, Krisitan, who is responsible for design & content. Unfortunately not available for hire due to our current theme workload! :)

- Ed

Default-user

All great news Ed, thanks a bunch! Sorry to hear Krisitan is unavailable. Please let me know when he is!

Thanks! Tom

Hi I am really interested in purchasing your theme but had one quick question. I am looking to update this web site, http://ywamnewcastle.com, and one of the key design features I need is the top banner. Can I add a similar banner to this theme instead of just the basic logo? I guess like the not profit skin (green one). Can I interchange elements or features you show on the different templates?

SwiftIdeas

Yes, you can use a full width header like the non profit example. You can optionally show the social icons and text over it if you like as well.

Yes, with our page builder, you can literally create pages exactly how you want them. You choose what you want on the page and where :)

- Ed

Great work! Good luck :)

SwiftIdeas

Thanks dude :)

WAUW – you guys ROCK! I think this is the most versatile, well-presented, good looking WP-theme I’ve ever seen on this site. Very, very well done. Be proud of yourself :) If you make it a one page-theme as well, then it must be the sharp swiss army knife of WP :)

Well, when you make it that good, you do rise the expectations. One thing I’m constantly wondering about is why almost no-one makes the theme easy adoptable for mailchimp newsletters. It’s almost never done – and if it is, it’s usually in the bottom. Why not make a top bar or something with that? That would be really great.

The only other thing I can possibly point my finger on is the pricing tables. They look nice, but it would be great with a more table-like approach where there’s a left border with features and then the boxes are refering to the index in the left border.

Besides that: GREAT job. But is the newsletter option something you might consider? Would love to buy NOW but am thinking about waiting for v.1.1 next week with the bugs fixed :)

Oh, and one last question: How much of the demo content is provided? Would love to have the template for the sophisticated blog posts!

Again: Be proud of yourself. You did goooood! :)

SwiftIdeas

Sure, it’s there for the people that need it :)

That does look pretty slick. I’ve added it to the wishlist, hopefully will be able to add support for that sometime soon! Cheers for the link.

Oh, that would be great. I do think that some people/readers might find it confusing that there’s a login on the front page, if it’s only to be used by the administrator(s) of the site. If it were made into a multilevel page with private access to selected visitors your swiss army knife would be really, really sharp, so I really hope you’ll integrate it in the near future :) Have a great weekend!

SwiftIdeas

Well it’s there for sites that have users who register to comment, or for the implementation of 3rd party membership plugins (which we make look at integrating at a later stage). We’re definitely going to look into this though!

Thanks, hope you have a great weekend too! :)

- Ed

Amazing! Congrats! I agree with the others – the care that has gone into this is obvious for all to see.

I love it but see some small usability issues that could be improved:

1. The sidebar menu links are only clickable on the word rather than the whole cell. If you could make the whole cell box clickable (like in the drop down menu links) that would make it easier to navigate and select, particularly when the page link is a very short word. If the links also changed colour upon rollover of their cell box like the drop down menu that would be fantastic. An improved sidebar navigation although a small change would help Pinpoint become more functional for large content sites.

2. I also find the vertical spacing between these links too wide, am I able to tighten that up?

3. The minimal accordion has the same issue as above – if the whole cell box was clickable that would be great.

4. The slider post thumbnail images for portfolio and blog are not clickable except for the + sign in the corner – when the other images are clickable anywhere I think this could cause confusion.

And some questions:

5. Can an image slider can be placed on any page with any width? (I see that revolution sliders are full width only)

6. Can a background image be placed in the page header area (grey box between menu and body)

7. I also have a need like Andy77 above for a more complex pricing table with features to the left side.

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Thanks for the kind words. A serious amount of care and effort has gone into this, and it’s appreciated that it’s noticed :)

1. Are you referring to the list items in the sidebar, for things such as category, archive listings etc? If so, thanks – we’ll definitely improve that in the 1.1 update.

2. Sure, I can provide you with the css to tighten this up – no problem!

3. Will improve this too, good spot.

4. Agreed that it isn’t expected, but then you can choose to have a video thumbnail, which has no overlay either. We like that you can have a slider with the controls, but I guess we could change it to have no controls and a hover, with autoplay on the slider. I guess it’s choice, we decided on the former.

5. Yes, you can put a rev slider at any width. The Rev Slider asset is used for the main slider of the page (so that it can be set without a margin on the left/right), but you can just embed the rev slider shortcode anywhere and it will resize to fit the container. You can set a text block to be 1/4, 1/2, 2/3 etc and then it will fit that block.

6. Yes, this would need to be done with custom css but I can provide an example for you.

7. Hmm, ok. I’ll have a think if this is something we can implement sooner rather than later – it seems a popular request!

Hope that helps :)

1. Yes, refering to sidebar list items such as the shortcodes page links on this page: http://themes.swiftpsd.com/pinpoint/accordion-toggles/

I’ll send a pm with some examples of what I see as great sidebar links practice.

I have a question regarding use of the page builder: Does it pose issues moving the site to another theme in future which doesn’t use a page builder? I’m hesitant to set up large content sites using a tool like this if it means the content would need to be manually copied out of page builder into a normal page format in the future. Can you shed any light on this?

Thanks for your responsiveness!

SwiftIdeas

Thank you, we’ll definitely make that change for the v1.1 update.

That would leave you with shortcodes showing in the content (as they wouldn’t exist anymore). If you were to not use the page builder on posts / portfolio items (it is optional) – then you wouldn’t have an issue with the content side, only pages.

Anytime :)

If i can make a few suggestions:

When using the Impact + button you should either have an “Impact only” or the ability to remove the button. Also it would be nice if you can change the font within the panel, or add html to the text to maybe bold something or change the color. I don’t like referencing other themes, but this page does it nice: http://themeforest.net/item/aqua-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-template/full_screen_preview/3649588

Secondly, I suggest maybe you have some templates already made, maybe some that have some predesigns, etc.. so if I click on “templates” in the editor it will populate the page with the boxes or spacers already to go. I know you allow the user to do it, but if you had some predefined ones, it would be a nice feature.

I am still playing around with it, so I am sure I will have more suggestions.

Thanks for that. I was using html code but nothing was showing but the code. I will try it again and see, maybe i had a syntax issue.

SwiftIdeas

I’m testing out the impact text element and it seems there are a few issues with it. Please could you log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com so that we can supply you with a fix once we’ve sorted the issues out?

Thanks,

Been playing around with the theme and it is great, extremely versatile. Is there any way to make the Clients builder element a carousel as a site i’m working on has quite a few logos to add. Another nice touch would be the ability to label the items in the page builder as having just icons could get a bit confusing!!!

Default-user

Nice one, I think this theme is going to sell really well. I have a slight problem with something i’m trying to achieve (not a theme problem but a styling issue). I’m pretty much there with it but can’t for the life of me figure out whats causing a slight appearance issue. Do you have an email I can send a link to see if you can work out what causing the problem? No worries if not i’m sure i’ll figure it out eventually!!!

Default-user

Scrap that, Just seen the support section so will post it there.

SwiftIdeas

Will take a look at your ticket as soon as I can :)
