Great theme! Loving it so far.

Is it possible to add excerpts to the articles in the homepage tabs?

Hi Anpanman,
thank you for your purchase, glad you like it :)

The only way would be to edit a theme file to achieve that (inc/panes.php)

Is it possible to make the “Classic Blog” style homepage full-width (ie. no widget area on the side)?

Not at this time unfortunately

I this I found a bug. When Single post > show related articles is active, the post showing related articles on the bottom down show the “category colors” and “background of the logo”.

Great Update! Thanks a lot. The only problem is that Im having problems with user profiles. Also, How can I adapt Spanish for this theme?

What’s the problem with profiles specifically? You need to translate it with a free software like poEdit and load the language file in wp-config.php.

Here’s a good tutorial about it: http://www.appthemes.com/blog/how-to-translate-a-wordpress-theme/

Hello!

I have a problem on my site: http://www.playforfree.nl/. On the top, I received the following text: <<<Warning: file_put_contents(/home/playforfre/domains/playforfree.nl/public_html/wp-content/themes/powermag/css/less.css) [function.file-put-contents]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/playforfre/domains/playforfree.nl/public_html/wp-content/themes/powermag/functions.php on line 293>>>

How can I get away?

Also I don’t have any images!

Thanks!

Hi,

Is it possible to get a sidebar widget which displays specific categories only? And when left title empty, it shouldn’t show the titlebar? Also when not allowing text excerpt, it just shows the featured picture of the latest post?

I’ve tried the “PowerMag – HP Category Regular”, but it wont work good

This is the only thing stopping me from launching my website officially

The HP widgets are not meant to fit the sidebar but the homepage, although I will consider adding new sidebar widgets in future updates.

Thanks for your reply! I can’t wait for the next update. Any specific date when we can expect it?

ps – is the 1.2 update wat everyone talks about also meant for wordpress? or only buddypress? im not using buddypress

djwd
djwd Author

Yes sure it’s for Wordpress, it adds compatibility to a popular social plugin (BuddyPress), it also includes some other minor fixes so you may want to update anyway.

I learnt that giving time frames about updates is a bad idea :) By the way the 1.2.1 update was just released so it would take a little while.

djwd

hi how often does the social box update?

sobrilliant

i renamed the theme folder to app-reviews :)

so something in the theme folder is returning a 500 error on my server?

it does it on your demo too: http://themeforest.wpengine.com/wp-content/themes/powermag/ and this is picked up in webmaster as a 500 error.

djwd
djwd Author

Ok but why are you linking it with the full path including ‘wp-content’? Where do you expect that link to take you?

sobrilliant

im not, but google webmaster crawls websites and checks each folder location, it pulled up the 500 error, so i looked into it.

Just wondering if its a problem or if its okay, usually i’d say its a problem regardless of where it is :)

Hello,

Your theme seems to be perfect for my project. I’ll buy your theme but I wonder if it is possible to put your demo on my wordpress interface.

djwd
djwd Author

Hi and thank you for your interest in PowerMag.

There is a demo.xml file included which will import everything the default Wordpress importer can handle.

You’re site is offline at the moment, I can’t verify. I see you’re using CloudFlare though, you need to purge your caches when updating the theme.

hi just purchased your theme. Help me please.! When uploading theme got this fatal error. /public_html/wp-content/themes/powermag/inc/lessc.inc.php on line 3268

Hi and thank you for your purchase.

Please don’t post multiple threads before receiving an answer in such a short time frame, I’ll help you don’t worry. Thank you.

I think this have to do with file permissions on your server, please make sure the CSS folder is chmod’ed 755 or 777, if you don’t know what this means report this to your hosting provider. For further help drop me an e-mail through my profile page with login access and I’ll have a look. Thank you.

djwd

Hi DJWD,

Sorry! sure your busy enough with the new update as it is!

just got my menu working fine, I think the issues I had with my host have driven me insane and I need to have a break please ignore my last couple of posts about the menu here.

Best Wishes

Hi again! What is the best way to update the theme? I try and just upload the new files into my existing folder on my server but when I do that, the site breaks and nothing loads until I upload the previous version files again.

djwd
djwd Author

Hi there, if you didn’t manually edit any of the theme files it’s enough to replace the theme folder. You won’t lose Theme Options settings as they are stored in the database.

Please make sure to clear all your caches (browser/cache plugins/CDN services) after updating, most of the times it’s just that causing issues.

Sure it does :)

nice theme. Is this theme supporting:

WPML? woocommerce?

Also, what are all the ‘advertising’ dimensions for this theme?

Are the adverts fully responsive?

Thanks.

djwd
djwd Author

Hi suprios,
thank you for your interest in PowerMag.

WPML and woocommerce should work good but not tested personally yet, looking forward to make it officially compatible.

You can place most of available banner sizes, leaderboard or 468×60 on the top, and pretty much all the others through the dedicated widgets. Responsiveness mainly depends on the code you enter, working on a solution to make it automatic though.

Hi and thank you for your interest in PowerMag.

The navigation make use of the native wordpress menu functionalities, you can add as many sub-menus as you want.
