One last thing what is this widget called: http://puu.sh/3t5ca.jpg
That’s the PowerMag – Carousel Widget
Do you have links to the demo in Blog Style 1 and Blog Style 2? I’m looking for a more traditional blog look for a site.
Hi and thank you for your interest in PowerMag.
The blog style 1 has the same layout as category archive + optional sliders:
Blog style 2 looks like this (sliders and carousels are optional):
Blog Style 2 looks really good. I have a couple of more questions if that’s okay.
I know about feature images. Are the top images in the article posts automatically inserted? A lot of my posts already have images on top, and I don’t necessarily want or need this. This would require removing some codes, which is fine, but I’d like to know beforehand.
We like to make our images clickable, sending the viewer to an additional page where they are shown in a larger size. Does the theme come with an attachment.php/image.php? Or a template where images inserted as “attachment” can open in?
Hi, sure it’s ok:
1. You need to set the featured images manually. Although if you want to pull the first image from a post there is a simple plugin that does it.
2. No attachment.php although in a future update the post thumbnail will be linked to the full size image using the theme lightbox.
I’m sorry, I’m not sure if it’s me not being clear, or if you’re answering my question but I’m reading it wrong.
Let me rephrase:
I understand how “Featured Image” work.s You select (“set” it using) an image that you have uploaded, and the theme uses that image as your thumbnail on the front page, archives, etc.
What I’m trying to understand is, by setting the Featured Image for a certain post. does that AUTOMATICALLY insert the (selected) Featured Image to the top of the single article page as well? Or is that manually inserted into the article during the “Write Post” box?
The reason why I’m harping on this question is because I have a LOT of images already manually inserted into the top of my articles. So if selecting Featured Image for thumbnails means the theme will also automatically insert those same Featured Image to the top of my single/article pages, it will cause a conflict, since I’ll now have TWO images at the top.
I hope that’s easier to understand?
Ok I’m sorry, I thought yours was a common question but actually it’s not. Yes featured images are also inserted inside the post automatically, at the very top as you see in the live demo. A solution would be to hide one of the two with some simple custom CSS though.
Hope I could clear your doubts now,
Yup, you did. Thanks.
Hi, I can’t log in wordpress because “There was a problem processing your request.”
Plus, the home page crash, and in the articles widget home: “Whoopsie! That page can’t be found.
It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try one of the links below or a search?”
what’s that? problems with google AD?
please help me!
Hi, looks more like a hosting problem, btw without (at least) a link it’s pretty hard to say mate!
I have this problem when i click fast on menu’s buttons. If I wait the page loading no problem. But if don’t wait the page loading and I click on another button the page crash in this way!
I tried this but I can’t replicate it, links work as normal to me :/ You could try to temporary disable all your plugins and re-check.
look this pic http://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq185/RedazioneFoto/IMG_02072013_103459.png thanks
Well that’s the 404 error page, I know it since I made it but it doesn’t help troubleshooting your issue though
solved! plugin error!
I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for creating this theme! My visits have doubled since then and everybody says my website is so fast and looks stunning! Keep up the great work mate!!
Wow! Thank you for taking the time to post it, I’m really glad about it
Hey djwd,loving the theme,
A couple of small issues if you wouldn’t mind pointing me in the right direction?
1. When I add categories & child cats to menu I can add 17 anything more I just get a 403 error on back end? My first thought was something to do with host & table size but its letting me create the cats just not add to menu? Have you any ideas?
2. I cant for the life of me find the cat-tabs widget you have in the demo big area bottom above the footer?
1. Honestly I don’t, never dealt with a similar problem, ‘403 Forbidden’ is usually a server issue, try to address this to your hosting provider.
2. Because that is not a widget There’s a dedicated tab called ‘Home Tabs’ with all the options to configure it in the Theme Options.
1. Thought as much just wondered if you had come up against it before.
Hey djwd just thought id let you know it was a mod security issue fixed now.
Hows it going. Loving the theme more and more and have been messing around trying to get the theme to how I want it but I’m having a few issues.
My scroll to the top button isn’t working, I’ve gone into the menu theme options and it is on but it still doesn’t work.
Also I’m having trouble still with the coloured menu buttons, I have done what you said before but even putting hex colour codes into each category they still aren’t working.
sorry to be a pain. was just wondering if you could help?
Hi chigginson, everything’s fine thanks!
You need to place the hex color code (including the ’#’) into the menu settings, inside the description field.
If you did this right you might have a JS problem, that could also affect the ‘scroll to top’ button. I’d need at least a link to troubleshoot that though.
hi thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I have done that for all the menu tabs so I think you are right when it comes to a JS problem. Is there anything I can do or do I need to send you a certain link? thank you
Well for starters a link to your blog would help If you need to keep it private you can contact me through my profile page.
yer no problem, http://sportscameraaction.co.uk/
Thanks. Please try disabling the old Twitter Widget in footer, it’s not working anymore and is triggering an error, that might be the cause of your issue.
(I also suggest to update to the latest version where the widget have been replaced to work with the new api)
do you mean update the latest version of power mag. will it change any of my settings?
oh and your an absolute genies, the scroll to the top worked! anything I could do for the menu tabs?
menu is sweet now. thank you for all the time you have put into helping me out. means a lot.
Great! Btw if you didn’t manually edit any of the theme files you can safely update by replacing the theme folder with the new one, theme options are stored in the database so you won’t lose them.
If you want to show your appreciation don’t hesitate giving the item a 5 stars rating
(ps: you may want to wait a couple of days before updating as a new version will come very soon)
I had someone help me so I think they may have tweaked some of the files so I’m worried about updating now. but I will definitely rate 5 star. thank you!!
Thank you for choosing PowerMag
Thanks for such an amazing theme.
I would like to know how can I have a video in the slider 2. I mean, I’m trying to do it like a featured image but it doesn’t work because it’s not an image, it’s a video.
How can I do it?
Hi there, you can’t load a video directly in the slider. This is bad practice and brings performance issues, you can set an image as video preview AND embed a video that will be visible in the post page.
Hi, I really like your theme, but i have questions related to theme and its feature. i am mentioning them below, Please help me to clarify them
1. I also need for user to add their own reviews, Can I do that? The way it happen in imdb, rottentomatoes, metric critic.
2. Share Plugin in home page slider of the reviews. For example in your Home page Slider of reviews Mexican Eats, The dark knight rises, Viktor and Rolf Autumn etc…Can I have share plugin?
3. I also need Quote on the header, beside website name. Can I do that?
4. I also need to add “buy from” below the review post.
5. Casting Details on the Review.
6. Also I need to add newsletter or subscribe option with in every review post. Can I do that?
thank you for your interest in PowerMag.
2. I’m not quote sure I got this, btw social sharing integration is what you see on the live demo. You can use external plugins for additional ones.
3. If you mean a tagline you can.
4. There is the affiliate link feature for that as shown here
5. Reviews are like you see them in the live demo
6. If the collapsible box in the header is not enough, you could simply enter the newsletter form code inside posts.
Thanks a lot… Will look at them
Friend, many of our visitors have appreciated the new look of our site, which really has happened because of your theme. Thanks once more. Can you please tell me when can we expect the subscriber only feature incorporated in the theme? We really need that feature to get our website running. Please consider.
Hi there, glad you like you and your visitors like it.
I can’t work on “per-user” features for free as this is a template, and unfortunately yours is the only request I got about this. I know I said I will do that but other priorities occurred and I’m so busy at the moment, if you want it as a personal customization feel free to contact me in private. (I still don’t understand why you can’t use a plugin for such feature though)
Hello! Itsme again.
Just a quick question, I think I read it earlier here but cant seem to find it.
Is there a way to easily select a sidebar to all posts from a specific category? I mean, I dont want to go through each indiviudal post (I have over 400) and change it manually..
Is there a way to select one sidebar to be applied to all post of a category?
Hi there, no way from the theme options at this time. You can only attach sidebars to posts or pages. You could use some plugin though, I’m pretty sure there are many.
Is there an easy way to disable author and date box displayed on the post view picture?
Hi there. Try by pasting this into the advanced > custom CSS textarea:
Hi there, disqus is very popular and I agree it’s really nice. It’s already supported by the theme, lots of users already using it. Can’t be included in the theme as it needs personal activation, but you can easily implement it yourself, it’s really straight forward.
Hi there, great theme. Just a couple of small issues have arisen since purchasing and implementing it.
1) In posts, the category title has no background. Can’t come up with an explanation, and it’s only happening for one specific category.
2) I used some CSS to hide the author/post date info on homepage thumbnails, but there’s still a visible outline of a box during hover-over. How can I remove this? (www.standupplanet.org)
Thanks in advance!
thank you for your purchase and compliments.
1. After a quick inspection looks like you’re missing the ’#’ before your category hex color ’#3cd4e4’
2. Replacing the
Hi , i love your theme ! However i have a one pre purchase question about reviews.What i want is that the review has like a double part.For an example if writing a post Theme 1 vs Theme 2 i want inside this review section to be able on the left site to add about it, and on the right side to add about theme 2 for an example. Is that possible to do, with this theme ?
thank you for your interest in PowerMag.
You can’t have more than one review box per post (unless you enter the code for the second manually inside the post editor).
Hi djwd, this is not what i wanted.For an example, i would turn off visitors rating, and use the rating box only once.I want to know is it possible to customize it like this Game 1 (title) vs Game 2 (title) ..below it in the middle would be for an example Gameplay… now under the game 1 for this game some our number and on the right for game 2 again the percent we gave for that game ? Something like football stats of the game..you can check for example on espn match stats …
You can disable the user rating, enter custom criterias (up to 6) and choose the rating type through the single post options, just like you see on the live demo. Although what you are asking would require some customizations at the theme files, or use some external plugins.
No date about update?
Coming very soon…
First of all, THANK YOU for an amazing template! I love it!
I don’t have any problem per se… But I have some ideas on how I want to customize my blog, and I was wondering if you could help me. I know my way around Perl, so I don’t need detailed instructions… Just a general idea how to go about doing something.
Quite simply, I have my own rating system. My website is a movie review site, and instead of stars or percentages, I use different words. (Eject, Stop, Fast-Forward, Play, Record).
1. Where in the files should I look if I want to display a custom image instead of the percentage or star rating?
2. Where in the files should I look to ADD the option in the pulldown menu of the add post page, so that I can add “VCR” in addition to Stars and Percentage?
thank you for your purchase and compliments
1. You should replace the stars image sprites in the ”/images” folder, trying to keep the same distance between items and the same transparency. Probably some CSS fine tuning will be required too.
2. Single Post options are stored in admin/meta-box-config.php
Hope this helps puttin you on the right track,
Do you know if the theme works well with ubermenu? I enabled ubermenu and I am running into what they call “Residual styling issues” – the submenus stay open all the time… any suggestions?
Hi there, sorry I’ve never tested it personally yet, can’t help you on that
Is it possible to run the theme in non-responsive mode?
Hi there thank you for your interest in PowerMag.
The option is there already but it’s disabled for the moment as it needs some more tweaking, so it’s not possible through an option at this time.
^ I was wondering the same. I would love to turn off the “responsive” feature.
