Hi! I purchased this product a few days ago & have been tinkering with it. I’ve run into a problem with the social count plugin, where the vertical design option overlaps itself.

I’ve also had some problems with the buddypress avatars overlapping themselves (scroll down): http://u-game.co.uk/forums/topic/member-selfie-thread-p/

I’ve also noticed the top-most nav is aligned to the right on my theme, where as the demo has these links aligned left? http://u-game.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/navbar.png

Hi there, replied to the ticket on the support site.

I am working on this theme and I have added the color to the comments box in the menu, but it is not adding the colored corner. The dropdown colors change, but not the corner.

Thank you for your help.

Hello I have questions about how to edit the menus and how to change what the menu buttons say. I opened a support ticket days ago, and have yet to receive a response.

Love the theme. Just want more info as to how to properly mod things.

Thank you I got your reply.

I’m thinking of purchasing this theme to use for a business membership site. Do you feel that’s a good use for this theme? We need to be able to search members directory by business type, using main categories as well as subcategories (retail > art supplies, etc). Also, I’d like members to be able to create their own posts for categories of events, offers, news, etc. Members will also need a page with their profile info (name/contact, logo, hours, description).

Will this theme work well for those purposes?

Hi there,
thank you for your interest.

The theme doesn’t actually have specific functionalities for your desired use, although I guess you should check out BuddyPress features to see if it can do what you are seeking for, I think what with a good magazine theme like this one and a good plugin selection you can achieve what you are looking for though.

is sample data easy to load so the theme looks exactly like your demo site ?

thnx

jim

Hi there, thank you for your interest.

There’s the XML sample data generated by wordpress importer included, which will import posts, pages, comments, menus. Widgets still have to be configured manually though (it’s a WP importer limitation unfortunately).

Hello, Nice theme here. Can buddypress users cret posts without going to wp backend? Can I create custom post type?

Thank You.

Hi there, thank you for your interest.

PowerMag supports buddypress and it integrates it aesthetically but it doesn’t provide additional features to the plugin.Btw users can normally post activity updates through the front-end, but I don’t think it’s possible for them to create regular posts.

Hey, great theme! Before I buy it, is it possible to have the users rate each criteria rather than just overall? Thanks!

Hi there, thanks for your nice words :)

Visitors can only rate the overall score

Hello:

Good morning my name is Ricardo Triana, I´m a front end developer and web/mobile designer. Im looking to purchase a template for my startup company. What Im looking for is:

-User registration/sign up -User can edit their profile (avatar image and data) and publish. Profile can be viewed by all registered and not registered users. -User geolocation. Can user have a geolocation option when creating profeile. -Advanced search app -Responsive and extremely mobile friendly -Chat aplication or some kind of comment aplication so users can interact in a private/public manner. -User can create a post/page with custom fields, and will only be published after admin authorization. This post/page can be tagged so that it can be easily found by a user when using this tags as search filters. -User can create and share a post/page with custom fields that will only be viewed by certain users. User should be able to associate this post/page with a certain user that is registered in the site.

I know these might look like a bit too much, but it is my best option, i need some kind of minimum viable product to be online in a few weeks, that is why Im taking the template option as my last resource. And I know that some of these functionalities can be achieved with plugins and son on. But Id really like to know if plugins can be installed without any trouble and that your template will be able to install these plugins with no conflict.

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you guys can help me out.

Regards

Hi there, thank you for your interest.

Since you have pretty specific needs, a custom solution would definitely be way to go. I understand you’re in hurry though, in that case I suggest to check if you can do what you wish to do within PowerMag and BuddyPress features. There’s no way for anyone to guarantee that every third party plugins you’re going to install will work 100% hassle-free, although since you’re a developer you should be able to sort out possible conflicts.

Regards
djwd

Chris djwd, thanks for your reply! Do you think you can give me access to a username and password so I can check out the functionalities of your demo?

Regards!

Hi, unfortunately this is not possible as I do not have another install set up for customers to play with, I cannot provide access to the live demo since it’s used for sales.

Hi there,

First of all, fantastic theme! Thanks for the great work on it.

We have a couple questions for you:

1. For the email newsletter funcitonality (where you click on the green button at the top right), is it possible have it instead send an email to the admin of the site? (instead of newsletter signup)

2. For the specific backgrounds per category….many of the articles for which backgrounds have been set are still showing the default background image. I believe this is because the posts were placed under several different categories…however all of our posts are under the same category: Latest Blog Posts, AS WELL AS other categories. Is it possible to make the system ignore a particular blog category so it pulls the background image from the other category?

3. for articles, how can we move the title that appears BELOW the image for it to appear ON TOP of the image?

Thanks so much, Oren

Hi there, we were able to fix 1 and 2 above, please just help with the third question! Thanks

Hi, Visual Composer is part of the theme, right? I’m having trouble with updates. It say’s that i have to buy that plugin.

Can you help with this?

Thanks

Hi there,
Yes Visual Composer is included but you can’t update it as a standalone unless you have a standalone license for the plugin. Some more info is available on their knowledge base.

For further assistance please open a ticket on the dedicated support site where support for PowerMag is exclusively handled.

Hi, want to install this on a multisite as the main blog. Can I pull posts from subsites to show on the widgetized homepage as per category or topic? Thanks

Hi there, thank you for your interest.

PowerMag doesn’t have ‘extra’ multisite features, you would need to edit the widget wp queries to make them pull posts from other sites in the same network. There might be third party plugins about this not sure though.

Regards
djwd

Thanks for reply. Do the page widgets accept shortcodes? thx

Hi, Does this theme have a MegaMenu? And does it have a Secondary and Primary Menu? Thanks

Hi there,

There is no built-in mega menu feature at this time, you should rely on a custom solution or third party plugins for that.

Best Regards
djwd

okay, How many menu positions? Primary, Secondary, Footer?

Exactly those :) There’s the Top location, the Main one and the footer location.

Hi! Referring to this question and this answer, how does the visitor rate the criterias ?

Hi there,
as that very reply says, users can only rate the overall score, it’s enough to slide on the user rating stars in order to vote.

Regards
djwd

I would like to make the comments-area “You Must Login In To Post a Comment” to be able to load ajax,

where do I edit the comments area, I have tried and failed,

please lead me to the correct files to edit the above words!?

Thanks

Hi there,
the above words are from wordpress core not from the theme, you would need to edit your functions.php in order to edit that. For further assistance please open a ticket in the support site.

Hi,

The Social-Counter widget seems not to work correctly. See link, pretty widget above.

it would be nice if you would get on your support page sometimes an answer

I think you won’t find a single ticket without an answer ;)
I had to run some tests about yours though, the ticket was processed now, thanks for your patience!

PowerMag is absolutely the best magazine theme I have ever seen. Congratulations!!

But 1 pre-purchase query-

Can members author their own posts from the front-end?

Hi there, thank you for the huge compliment!

What you are asking unfortunately it’s not a theme feature, I believe there are third party plugins that could do the job, never tested personally though.

Regards
djwd

Ok thank you.

Hi! I just bought your theme and i would like to know if it is possible to include the star rating in the comment section, si that in order to rate the article, you have to give your email adress. Merci! :)

Hi! I would like to know if it is possible to include the star rating in the comment section, so that when a reader want to rate, he has to give his email. Thank you!

Hi there,
thank you for your purchase.

Unfortunately that is not possible it would require some custom coding. For further assistance please open a ticket on the dedicated support site, it’ll be processed as soon as possible.
