I’m considering purchasing this theme and am new to WordPress so this may be a silly question, but one of the requirements listed is “self-hosting”. I haven’t seen that on other themes. What does that mean?

Thanks for your help.

Hi there,

Some users are confused about the different between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. I posted that requirement so users with a WordPress.com account know they can’t use themes like this.

More info: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

Thanks!

So this theme will work on say BlueHost or GoDaddy without any connection to any kind of WordPress account?

theMOLITOR

Right, you just need to have WordPress installed.

How are updates handled? If I put on a version now, and the theme is updated, will it be automatic and easy to update, like other (free) themes are? Just click from within Wordpress settings and go? Thanks.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

ThemeForest themes don’t update the same way the free themes on the WordPress site update. That’s because the free themes are sitting in the WordPress system. ThemeForest themes sit on ThemeForest, so you have to download them from ThemeForest and upload them to your WordPress installation. When updating, you have to either replace the files manually, or delete the old theme and upload/install the new theme.

Hope that helps.

Twitter feed widget not working with new API ?

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

I’m not sure I understand your question. Are you asking if the twitter widget plugin works with this theme? If so, I’m not aware of any issues.

Thanks!

Hello theMOLITOR,

this is a pre-sale question. Is there a possibility in this theme or any of your other themes to have a “fixed” header?

Thank You in advance!

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

With this theme, that isn’t a built-in feature, but you can submit a customization request for something like that here: http://themolitor.com/custom

Regarding other themes, here are some that have sticky menus>

Thank You for the information!

Hello, i’m thinking of purchasing this theme but a few questions.

I will not be using this for a political website, is it possible to remove the donate button and place a search widget in it’s place? Also can the countdown be removed?

thanks!

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

You have full control over the donate button and countdown. Both are optional and can easily be turned off in the theme options.

Regarding the search widget, that space is reserved for menu items, so adding a non-menu item there would be considered a customization.

You can submit customization requests like that here: http://themolitor.com/custom

Hope that helps!

Updated the link above…

I am considering purchasing this theme for a campaign I am working on. I noticed that the layout is fixed rather than responsive. Do you have any screen shots of how it looks on mobile? If it were responsive I would have purchased in a heartbeat but just wonder how it will look on mobile and tablets. Any input would be much appreciated.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Thanks for the feedback! It displays the same way it does on desktop machines, just smaller :-)

Option Tree 2.1.4 has deprecated the import xml feature and has a new method. From the plugin: “This import method has been deprecated. That means it has been replaced by a new method and is no longer supported, and may be removed from future versions. All themes that use this import method should be converted to use its replacement below.”

Not really sure what impact that would have on the Politico theme which I am thinking of purchasing.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

All of my themes now use the WordPress Theme Customizer, which replaces the use of OptionTree. :-)

Thanks so much for this Excellent Theme. The feature set is so rich, and all the features actually work!

I am thinking about integrating the theme with IK social Pro, a facebook integration app. Do you have any recommended facebook integration app??

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Thanks for the nice remarks! Really appreciate that :-)

I haven’t played too much with facebook integration, so I don’t have a solid recommendation. Sorry.

Awesome Theme!

A previous graphic designer used version 1.1. The client wasn’t able to find him and contracted me to update the site. I went ahead and purchased the newest version.

After deleting the previous theme from the ftp, I uploaded the newest version but now I’m running into some issues.

01. The election countdown is not functioning when I input and save the “end date” 02. The slider text on the right just runs off and does not produce a “read more” type of action. I’ve tried using the excerpt page option and still did not work. 03. At the bottom of each page there are “2 clickable return to the top of the page (didn’t know what else to call it right now) lines” www.reginaldcrossley.com

Your prompt response would be greatly appreciated.

Hey…having a problem with the facebook widget. To the point where I am currently using a different plugin but it looks horrible. Is there a bug I am unaware of?

I’ve used this theme before, it it use to have a facebook field in the footer section, under Customize. But it’s not showing up for me? Has it been removed?

I’m looking to purchase this theme for a campaign I’m working on. One question on the homepage – I see that items can be removed such as search and Donate, but can the page be customized to replace the search box with an email sign up form? And also, can the size of the theme banner be shrunk? Thank you!

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

1. The search box is a standard WordPress widget. You can easily add/remove widgets as you see fit. For email sign up, you’ll need to use a plugin that adds that functionality.

2. I can provide instructions in my support forum for reducing the size of the banner via CSS.

Hope that helps.

Best,

Chris

Hello. Thinking of purchasing but seeing comments about Facebook widget not working. Since I haven’t purchased this theme yet I’m not able to review your support site to determine if there was/is a fix or if the problem is solvable at my end. Also I need to make sure the countdown is now working properly. Appreciate an answer before I purchase. Thank you.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

I’m not aware of any issues with the Facebook widget or the countdown feature. As you can see on the demo site, they appear to be working just fine ;-)

Hello,

Does the slider support responsive design? Cause When I use mobile to view the website, it shows all the slide in a row without any slider effect.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

The slider does display all slides when it reaches a certain size. This was done mainly for readability purposes on smaller devices.

If you have feature/design suggestions, please post them here on my forums: http://www.themolitor.com/forums/topic/feature-requests-for-politico

Pre-Sale question. Does this theme have content already, like the xml content so as to modify some information.

thank you

theMOLITOR

Yup. Demo XML file included ;-)

Is there a way to get a download of historical versions? I’m hoping to get the original download of version 1.1 and compare it to my client’s version to see if they made any modifications.

theMOLITOR

Definitely!

Message me from my profile page contact form and I’ll be happy to send you a zip file.

Best,

Christopher
