Hi, how do you get the nice custom login popup that is shown on the demo site?

Hi, does this theme has to be active on the main site? or can I have all features of showing network wide posts etc if I use in on a sub site? Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme needs to be installed on the main site in order to use these features. If you want a different look on the main site, use a child theme that overwrites the styling of Plexus.

hi,

Can I make Left Side/Content/Right Side layout with this template?. I would like to use in home page but I can not see it in demo page layouts.

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme does not come with a 3 column page template. However you can use the 3 column element that comes the Visual Composer page builder to add a sidebar either side of central content.

Hello,

I want to build a buddypress multisite network with your plexus theme and have some questions:

1. I want to display advertisements in theme sidebar. It is possible to create a global sidebar or widget on all blog sites, so I can display global advertisements?

2. Can I denied user access to my wordpress backend and user can make blog posts on front end?

Thanks and best regards, Max

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) The theme does not support global sidebars, this is quite difficult to do because it’s something I wanted to include. I suggest looking for a plugin that offers this functionality, otherwise you will need to add your widgets directly to the sidebar.php.

2) This is certainly possible but the theme does not have this functionality. You’ll probably need to use the Capability Manager and Gravity Forms plugins to achieve this.

Hello, thanks for your answer. So I understand the following: It is possible to make global sidebar or widgets, but I must work intern with php?

It is possible to create a global sidebar or widget and multisite blog users can not edit this? I think this is a important feature for the network, so I have full controll.

Thanks, Max

GhostPool

Yes, you will need to use PHP to edit the files, unless you can find a plugin that offers this functionality.

As I say I wanted to include this, but I’ve not found a way to do it.

Hi,

The category images on our installed Plexus theme are not showing. We did use a child theme to customise it but have not made any functional changes.

Anyone had that problem before? If so what was your solution? If not, what is the solution? I’m stumped on this. Thanks.

Hi Ghostpool,

Done, submitted on 30/01/2014 @ 10.40am.

I’d appreciate a reply as soon as humanly possible. Thank you for your support, advice and help in advance.

Pre-sales questions,

I’m deciding between Plexus and Buddy.

1. From the point of view of a web purely for social network, which of the two themes would you recommend?

2. Which of the two themes is more advanced in terms of programming is concerned?

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) A social network is a very broad term so without knowing specific I would say Buddy. Both themes work with BuddyPress, but Plexus has additional multisite features you probably won’t need for a social networking site.

2) Again, programming is a very broad term. If you mean which theme has the most advanced features and/or coding, then Plexus is a little better in this department since it’s a newer theme. However Buddy isn’t far behind and is always updated to include important advances in my framework.

Does the theme come with a child theme?

GhostPool

Yes it does. :)

Hi there, I’d installed the theme 3 times, but still can’t get the layout and dont know how to set up to get this Live demo, pls advise how I can make it.

Besides, the menu is not display normally, nothing there even I’d created one with other names, I can only preview it from the Appearance -> Customize page, but can’t see the menu at the Live site, pls advise also.

Thank you!

Also do you offer paid installation option with bbpress and multsite? If so, how much?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Thanks for making me aware of this. This issue bug has now been fixed.

I do not provide paid installation. I provide free support with helping you set up the theme and this does include basic help with multisite and bbPress. :)

I was looking for something on your theme and couldn’t find it.

For example 5 different users create blogs, all are in 1 category. Can I dispaly those 5 blog posts in that 1 category?

I don’t see a general “blog” page on your site that showcases all the combined posts from other authors

GhostPool

This has now been fixed. :)

I’m now experiencing the same isyue. The guys at Ticksy are aware of this issue and working on resolving it. In the mean time if you have any support questions, contact me through my contact form at http://themeforest.net/user/GhostPool

Thanks man thought I was being picked on!! :)

GhostPool

Not at all. Looks like Ticksy is now working again. :)

Can I use this theme with MarketPress plugin to build multishop? Thanks!

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme has not been tested with MarketPress, however I don’t see any reason why it would not work.

Hello,

this template with shortcodes?

Thanx

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme comes with shortcodes, but instead of inserting the shortcodes into your page, you can use the Visual Composer page builder to insert them. Visual Composer comes fully integrated with the theme and allows you to build layout such as inserting columns, buttons, posts visually without seeing the shortcodes.

Hi,

I am wanting to make a blogging network, and hoping to make the registering, blog creation and blog editing, all front-end. I read in a previous comment that this could be possible with Capability Manager and Gravity Forms. Is this possible and how would I go about doing it?

Thank you

GhostPool

Hi there,

To confirm, you can create blogs from the front-end with Plexus (using BuddyPress plugin). You cannot create blog posts from the front-end by default, however as I suggested to the other person who asked this, you can use the Capability Manager and Gravity Forms plugins. Capability Manager allows you to give users permissions to make/edit blog posts and the Gravity Forms plugin allows you to create a form on the front-end that can be used to make blog posts.

I have been having some trouble getting posts from other blogs in my multisite to appear. As you can see on gedb.org, the ‘Sitewide Categories’ widget is at the top and it only shows posts and categories from my main site. I have a couple other sub-sites (gedb.org/reviews and gedb.org/news) that have a lot of posts in them. I’ve set up the ‘Sitewide Tags’ option on my multisite but posts still don’t appear. Any idea?

Just a question before purchasing: is Plexus compatible with Cube Points? Does it work fine with it? Many thanks.

GhostPool

Hi there,

I have not tested the theme with Cube Points so I cannot say for sure but I don’t see any reason why it would not work with the theme.

before Buy i have query Maxmium number of blog it can handle if each blog have at least 100 post?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Please note that WordPress Multisite handles all the blogs, not the theme itself. According to Multisite there is no limit to how many blogs or posts per blog.

before Buy i have query Maxmium number of blogs it can handle easily if each blog have at least 100 post?
