Discussion on Plexus: Network WordPress & BuddyPress Theme

Hi,

I pre purchase but I have a question. How to make it work on IE8? Thank you.

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme should work in IE8 but it’s not going to look great. IE8 has a relatively low number of users now so that’s why I and many other web developers choose not to support it. If you want it to look goodin IE8 this is something you or a developer will need to address.

A pre purchase questions:

1) I have a multi-site installation where I have grouped a directory listing site, a classified ads site and a jobs site with their respective default blog types changed to the listing, ads and job posts.

If I install Plexus on the base site, can I display the recent listings/ads/jobs on the home page using the site wide plugins (the default blog types have been set to their respective types) ?

Can I display the different categories from these sites using the site wide plugins on the home page ?

2) Is it possible to sync the user profiles across the sites and display their listings / ads / jobs on their profile pages ?

If it is not possible through the plugins provided with the theme, in what ways this can be achieved ?

These features are the basis on which I would make the decision to purchase the theme.

GhostPool

1) The Sitewide Tags plugins which displays content from all blogs only works with posts and pages by default so this will not work without customization unfortunately.

Default-user

Thanks GhostPool for your prompt reply and support.

I am interested in purchasing the theme, but I want a further clarification on what would be the cost of customization for the following two function (please provide separate quotes) (or let me know where should i communicate to get this details)

1) Display different custom post types from a multi-site WP installation with several sites related to coupons / listings / job board / classified ads / all from PremiumPress. Display different categories from these sites. (on the base theme home page, that would be your plexus theme.

2) User profile page displays the listings / other custom posts they have submitted.

GhostPool

Thanks for your interest. You can contact my developer who does all the custom work for my customers. You can check out their previous work and get a quote from them at http://www.ourwebmedia.com/ghostpool.php?aff=002.

has to be the slowest ticket system going!

GhostPool

Slowest how? In terms of server speed or response time? I’m using a third party ticket system that many authors on ThemeForest use – if it’s running slow there’s nothing I can do about it unfortunately. Servers have speed issues from time to time, so hopefully this will be fixed shortly.

Hi, i submitted many ticket but i have never answer, since 1 week !

So i explain here.

1)Visual Composer doesn’t work good, i can’t use “Fronteditor” when i try i have a white page ! it’s because of the Layer Slider. so i need the latest update of VC so can you send me that please ??

Just checking back.

Want to run this on a subsite. I am already running a network of sites and want to add this theme for user blogs. Does this theme need to be on the main site? I don’t have buddypress installed on the network yet. Was thinking to add a second network or something so I can make your theme a section of my site. Do you know of a way to create an additional network while keeping the same domain so that I can run your theme as the main site of that network and install buddypress for it?

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

This theme needs to be run on the main site otherwise the theme settings will have no control over the rest of the sub sites.

Why not just install BuddyPress on the first network? Unfortunately I’m not sure about having multi networks on the same domain, I would imagine it’s possible, but I’m not the person to ask. I would suggest asking this over on the WordPress support forums.

Okay, think I got it figured out. Did a separate WP network install in a subfolder of the main site. Since it’s a fresh network, I should be able to run your theme as the main site of this install, right? All the network features should work fine since it’s a fresh wp install and your theme would be the main site of the network.

GhostPool

Yes that should be fine.

Hello,

Is this theme not compatible with Custom Sidebars Pro from WPMUDEV? I did a fresh install of Wordpress, installed your theme, activated the Plexus plugin and then installed the Custom Sidebars Pro and get this error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class CustomSidebars

Please advise, thanks.

A pre-purchase question: I don’t have BuddyPress installed on my main site, my BuddyPress is not network activated and it is installed on a sub-site in a network as a sub-domain (http://community.domain.com). Will this theme still work on my community sub-domain website?

Currently bp-default is being used with a child-theme but as you know bp-default is not supported anymore and it has compatibility issues with the latest BP.

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

Plexus will work on a sub domain, but it needs to be on the main site if you want to use all the network features that come with the theme.

Default-user

by “it needs to be on the main site” you mean it needs to be selected/activated as the main theme for the main site?

GhostPool

Well the main site can only have one theme activated, but yes it needs to the theme activated on the main site.

When installing the theme on a network, I want the users to all have the same looking blog. Is this part of Plexus or do we need to provide a theme for users when they sign up? I understand your theme is for the main site, just wondering about the user blog subsites. Thanks

Default-user

Also, when users have their blog on the network, some might want to have their own domain. Does your documentation cover how to add domains to user blogs? If not, can you explain the process to me so I can do it?

Will be getting your theme soon for a project so just want to make sure on these last few things.

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Plexus can either just be used on the main site or it can be used on all sub sites as well.

2) This is a general WordPress multisite question, it’s not related to the theme really. You’ll need to contact WordPress support about questions relating to domain set up.

Hi, Just purchased and getting a fatal error when clicking to use Visual Composer…

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare layerslider_init() (previously declared in /home/blogs/public_html/wp-content/plugins/LayerSlider/wp/shortcodes.php:6) in /home/blogs/public_html/wp-content/plugins/LayerSlider/wp/shortcodes.php on line 47

GhostPool

I would disable Layerslider for now – however I can look into it for you to make sure this is the theme issue. Please create a support ticket at the support site where we can discuss this further – http://ghostpool.ticksy.com/

Nevermind, got it all setup.

My install didn’t go very well. It created a whole bunch of duplicate pages and none of the Buddypress stuff works. I think it should have a 1-click install and have everything perfectly setup to look just like your demo.

Aren’t we suppose to have a site that looks exactly like your demo? I imported the XML, widgets, and slider and it’s not close. The images are not associated. The slider has an error code as stated above.

I followed the install instructions and it didn’t install perfectly for me.

Just thought I would let you know.

I got the hang of your theme now. Had to start over and get all the stuff setup right. Looks good now. Nice features on this theme.

Do you know about when the slider will work with Visual Composer?

Does the slider work on its own if I remove Visual Composer?

Question about the categories and the category images…

I set up the theme up on a multisite network and was wondering how the network-wide categories work.

Do I set the categories on the main site, then every subsite admin will only see those categories to post in?

Reason is, I have the post category widget set on the homepage and would like to limit the categories being used.

Also, will the category images always be the same? I want to make sure those stay the same and that the categories stay the same throughout the network. If users want more categories to post to, then they can send in a request.

Thanks for a great theme. Love the features and my site looks great!

Ghostpool, I sent in a support ticket and never heard anything back. I need to know if it is possible to restrict the network categories that users can post to.

I have my network all setup, but can’t find a way to show only a list of the pre-selected categories in the post editors of all the subsites.

Is there a way I can create all the categories on the main site, add all the category images, and make only those categories available to the network?

That is the last bit I’m stumped on.

Thanks for the help in advance.

I try to answer all support questions within 24 hours, but sometimes it can take longer – sorry about that. Your ticket has now been answered. :)

PREPURCHASE QUESTION: Hi, I would like to know how many blogs can this theme have.

Thank you for your response, Consuelo

GhostPool

Hi there,

The limit will not be due to the theme, it will be a question of how many blogs your server can handle.

can i know if plexus is compatible with plugin reviewer and generally with the most of the plugins here in envato market?..thank you

GhostPool

Hi there,

Plexus uses the latest WordPress coding standards so it should be compatible with most up to date plugins here. However since there are so many plugins available, there’s no way to guarantee which one’s will and will not work. I have not tested the plugin Reviewer with this theme so I can’t tell you if this will work either unfortunately.

Hello, where can I find the shortcodes for the theme? I tried those coming with the buddy theme, they don’t work. I don’t want to use the visual composer, cause the buttons in it have different look. Also is it possible to use the buddy plugin in Plexus theme?
