I uploaded a logo in Theme Options and it shut the server down. Not sure what to do.

This request is overrunning apache:

Hi there,

Looks like you need to visit the theme options, menus and widgets page. If you still have trouble, please post a thread on my forums: http://themolitor.com/forums

Thanks!

Hello Chris, I am having some problems with the contact form. How do I get the input fields onto the contact form. Just like how it is on the demo.

Thanks, T

Purchased but haven’t used yet. I notice on the live preview that if you press play on the video in the slider, then video starts playing… but the slider keeps cycle, while the video is playing. You can still hear the video while the slider is cycling back around to it.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

That’s correct. Unless you pause the slider using the play/pause button, it will continue to slide.

Thanks for purchasing!

Chris

Before I buy, can you confirm that I can place a custom logo at the top where the generic ‘Politico’ logo appears?

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Yes, that is a theme option :-)

Thanks!

I’m still waiting on my password to be emailed in the molitor forums, even did a reset and nothing as of yet (not in junk either)

I am looking to move the social icons to the top right of the header, and possibly in color. How is the best way to do that.

Thanks in advance.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Just reset your password. You should get an email. If not, please email me from my profile page and I’ll send it to you.

Thanks!

Is there a way to change the footer widgets from 4 centered to 3 centered columns?

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

That requires a bit of work to change as it involves editing a handful of files. For requests like this, please submit a request here: http://themolitor.com/custom

Thanks!

Rated two stars because of the following:

  • Horrible Support
  • No shortcode use whatsoever
  • Heavily replies on other plugins for simple stuff like a contact form
  • Cannot create an index page through WP
  • Slider is permanent and requires code modification to remove
  • You must have 4 footer widgets or none at all

Theme does look awesome but definitely needed more work. Basic shortcodes such as columns would be nice. Had this been from a noob coder, rating would have probably been less strict.

When I make a page default in WP, it adds the slider. I tried to get rid of the slider but it is not working.

As for support, from browsing your website, a lot of the answers you provided other clients were vague and weren’t clear on what to do.

While this theme may not “require” these plugins, if we want the theme to look like the one you currently have as the demo, we have to use them: WP-PageNavi (pagination plugin), Contact Form 7, Display Widgets, and Twitter Widget Pro.

I have read two other requests to remove the slider (at least since I dont have access to your emails) on your support forum.

and about the shortcodes, the demo doesn’t say you have any. So for future development, basic shortcodes should be implemented.

Just curious, did you ask for help in my forums or did you just browse other users requests? I’m still not seeing a specific issue with our support. If something is not clear, you should ask for more details or clarification.

Typically a theme should be given a low rating if it doesn’t work, listed features aren’t included or features included are too difficult to use.

Just because a theme doesn’t have shortcodes and has a list of suggested (not required) plugins isn’t grounds for a low rating. I mean, plugins are what makes WordPress so awesome. A theme shouldn’t have all these things built-in as it just adds bloat.

Anyways, I feel you’re rating this theme a bit unfairly, but you’re free to do that.

Chris

ReaxtionStudios

Yes, I did ask here – http://www.themolitor.com/forums/topic/help-i-dont-want-the-slider

Themes that reply heavily on plugins tend to suffer when updating.

I will adjust my rating to be less strict.

I would like my posts to show the category and tags. How do I do that? Can I use a plugin if this theme doesn’t have that option?

Can someone tell me how to put a logo or my blog name on the header. The header name won’t show up.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

The logo is controlled from the theme options panel. If you still need help, please use my support forums: http://themolitor.com/forums

Chris

Can’t edit anything under theme options. I am getting page in error. Is this due to JAVA ?

Where should I put my blog name?

Thanks

I loaded the wrong theme. It works for me now.

theMOLITOR

Thanks for following up!

Chris, How come that my blog name won’t appear in top header. I do not have a logo and I just want my blog name show up on the first header.

Very nice theme. Easy to setup and easy to use. Tested in on a politician and it worked well! Thanks to the team.

theMOLITOR

Awesome! Thanks for the nice remarks :-)

Is there a way to easily increase the number of widgets available? I have a client who needs 8 on their home page.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

That requires a bit of work to achieve. You can submit a customization request for that here: http://themolitor.com/custom

Thanks!

Hi, I’m about 3 questions away from purchasing this great looking theme!

1.) Is it possible to remove the donate now button and center the menu buttons at the top?

2.) What are the Logo options at the header? How wide/ how big can we have our logo? (i.e. is it possible to have the logo cover the width of the menu buttons?)

3.) Is it possible to have a photo behind the slider instead of just a color?

Thanks!

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

1. The donate button is optional, but centering the menu requires a minor CSS edit. I can provide that in my support forums.

2. No width requirement, but the height is limited to the header space you see in the demo (mainly due to the decorative graphic used in the header).

3. That requires a bit more work to achieve. You can use this from to submit requests that go beyond minor/simple edits: http://themolitor.com/custom

Hope that helps!

Wow. You’re awesome. Thanks for the quick response! Buying the theme today, and I’ll submit those requests in the proper fashion.

Thanks again!

Update: v1.3.0 now available!

Politico is now translation ready! All files have been updated.

Great theme, great support by the looks of this forum as well.

I have one question, and I hope its a simple fix. I simply want to remove the linking from the images in my home page slider:

http://crimeline.outer-banks-web-design.com/

Three slides, just want them to appear, and not link. Is this possible? thanks – Ben
