Just awesome! I like the menu hover ;) GLWS

Guys, good luck with this one! Great theme!

Congrats, neat touches here, as always.

Kind Regards,
Bedros

Great looking theme. How hard would it be to use the classic header layout and insert a div in the center for a leaderboard ad?

Just a few more questions, please:

1) I noticed you listed custom styling for certain post types, and audio was not included. My site will be VERY audio-driven, so is this something that will come?

2) Are child themes supported with this theme? I generally do quite a bit of modification and prefer to use a child theme.

3) How difficult will it be to add or modify social buttons? I’d like a SoundCloud button and might want a Twitch.TV or others in the future.

djhaystack

Oh, and one more… will this theme work with a background image management plugin such as http://wordpress.org/plugins/background-manager/ ?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

1) I’m afraid there’s no audio post format build in (though it can be enabled)

2) Yes, theme supports child themes. But as with any advanced theme, it may be more difficult that with TwentyTwelve :)

3) The easiest way is to hard code it. In addition, if you’re familiar with PHP-for-WP you can extend code easily.

4) Theme customization tools are more advanced than in other themes. I’m not sure that plugin will handle it… Alternatively you can use background stripes shortcode to customize your pages backgrounds. Or hook to pages IDs and change it via CSS

Very great work! Good luck :)

Just bought! Can I get the revolution slider demo separately? Not with the rest of the website demo content.

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Thanks for purchase!

Please, submit a request via our online help-desk http://support.dream-theme.com – our staff will get back to you ASAP and assist with it.

Default-user

Just Submitted. FYI… You guys dont have an option in tickets yet for this theme.

Dream-Theme

Sorry. Forgot to “publish” that option :D Now it’s visible. Thanks for heads up!

Thanks for feedback to all fellow-authors! :)

Hi, great theme, bookmarked it, i think will use in future works. One problem i noticed, when scrolling down is not smooth. Does only i have this problem?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Most probably this caused by ThemeForests panel in the top of the preview. Have you tried clicking the “Remove Frame” on the top left of demo?

If scrolling “jerkiness” remains, please be so kind to report your Browser and OS version (and maybe your computer specs) – we designed this theme to run super smoothly and will do our best to eliminate any possible issues. Thank you so much for assistance!

Looks awesome! GLWS

Nice job, love the details

Guys we’ve forgot to include the demo for Slider Revolution to theme package. Sorry. Here you will find all required files and instructions: http://support.dream-theme.com/knowledgebase/where-can-i-get-the-demo-content-2/

Holy crrrrap! After buying 100+ themes and templates on themeforest I have to say I haven’t seen anything like this admin and customizing options. Nicely structured and extremely easy to use. Only been working with it for a hour or so this far, but impressed. Outstanding work guys!

Dream-Theme

Hi, Thank you so much for feedback!

It’s a best compliment :) We put really great amount of time in making sophisticated things simple and easy to use.

Plus, we eager to hear feedback on what can be improved. Constructive feedback (and good ratings :D ) are things that helping us to improve and evolve our products.

WoW, great design & functionality.

Pre-sales question; What is the content building method? through visual builder or only shortcodes? Any video of this? Looking forward to hear from You. regards, Prash.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

At this point it is old-school shortcodes (with appropriate buttons in WYSIWYG).

In previous generation of our themes (according to our researches) people were rarely using layout builder. But shortcodes there were basic… Moreover not all top sellers on ThemeForest are using builders.

However, we want to study a demand. If people will ask for this feature, we are ready to integrate Visual Composer ( http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-composer-for-wordpress/242431 ). First with some basic shortcodes (almost all is ready for that); and rapidly convert all shortcodes in its format.

So the question is “should we?”. We’d like to hear everyones thoughts about it.

Default-user

Hi, Well, If you have a look at the ‘consistent’ top selling authors, they either have a visual content builder or their own content builder, usually called Page builder or visual composer. A few top authors who have a content builder are; Kriesi GoodLayers MDNW Parallelus.

From an end user’s perspective, it is obviously much much easier to use a page builder that use shortcodes. regards, Prash.

Dream-Theme

Thank you so much for sharing opinion! I agree, guys are doing amazing job.

But the difference with PressCore is that you really need shortcodes when building home and contact pages. For every other pages page templates are doing heavy lifting :)

Anyway, we’re not saying “no” to page builders. For now we’re gathering feedback and studying demand.

Thanks again!
Kindest regards, Miroslav (from Dream-Theme)

Impressive theme, to say the least! :) But question is if a plugin like Themer would work with it, or might it f* something up? I’m just starting to build a couple of sites and got advised to give that plugin a try and i don’t want to start from scratch. Also i don’t want to waste money on themes if they don’t coincide with the Themer plug… So any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

If I understood that plugin purpose correctly – you do not need it :D . PressCore customization and design building tools are much more advanced. Moreover they are easy to use.

Besides that plugin states that it’s super compatible with all themes…

Very nice theme! I apologize for the questions. I’ve only worked with html templates in the past, never having used a WordPress template, I’m unsure. Before making a purchase…

Can I change the color scheme to something completely different than your included skins and of a color palette of my choosing?

Would I be able to add the following features, and choose where I want them to go?

Add a right sidebar to the home and portfolio pages. Add a Facebook Activity Widget (into that right sidebar) Add my recent YouTube Videos from my YouTube channel (into that right sidebar) Add an Instagram Widget Regarding the homepage sliders… I can make that 1 static photo, correct?

Regarding the Facebook, YouTube and Instagram widgets, are those something that you have and can include? Or do I need to purchase them and install myself? Would those widgets be compatible with your brand new theme?

I own DreamWeaver. Do I need any special software to work with your WordPress theme? Or is it all done in a control panel?

It is a beautiful theme…

Thank you!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

First of all, note that with any other new software, you’ll need to invest some time & patience in getting accustomed with WordPress :) But when you do, you’ll be able to create/manage sites much easier and more efficient then with raw HTML (I’m speaking of DW right now).

Regarding your questions:

> Can I change the color scheme to something completely different than your included skins and of a color palette of my choosing?

Creating fully custom skins with PressCore is a breeze! All our themes are famous for their customization and design creation tools. And PressCore is so far most advanced of them all. You’ll not find anything even close in any other theme around.

> Regarding the Facebook, YouTube and Instagram widgets, are those something that you have and can include? Or do I need to purchase them and install myself? Would those widgets be compatible with your brand new theme?

You can have sidebar wherever you like. There are free plugins for FaceBook and Instagram. About Youtube – I’m not sure. But considering wide variety of plugins for WordPress, i think it’ll not be an issue.

Hi

Congratulations, this is a fantastic looking theme.

I’m about to purchase but wondered if you have tested on Android OS? The demo site does not render properly on Galaxy S3 with native browser (constant flicker, fuzzy and distorted). I’ve tried removing the Themeforest banner but it makes no difference. Is this an HTML5 compatibility issue?

Thanks

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Theme is tested on Nexus 7 on Android 4.2 and 4.3. Works fine there. Couple of weeks ago I’ve looked through it on Note II – it wasn’t perfect on pages with huge amount of content, but worked fine on other pages…

Have you tried it in mobile Chrome? (since it’s stock browser in recent Androids)

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply. Apologies, I rebooted both phones and now the demo site displays perfectly!! I’ve run some tests and think it was because I had too many browser windows open (or too many HTML5 sites/scripts running) in the background which caused the rendering issue (O/S version 4.1.2). Thanks

Dream-Theme

Hi, Thank you so much for update!

Hi,

Congratulations for this amazing theme, it’s superb!

My only remark is the loading speed of homepage and some other pages, they are a little bit slow. Can you improve the demo site to be sure that on a real site we’ll have good results?

Thank you!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

At this moment we have enormous amount of visitors! And caching cannot be enabled in order to demo-customization-panel work… In addition our server is located in south-east of US, so it’s considerably slower in other regions.

Nevertheless, please take a look here: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/cWpNPh/http://presscore.dream-demo.com/demo/ – 3-4 seconds in these conditions is a remarkable result!

Great theme. Any plans to add review functionality? Thanks.

Dream-Theme

Hi, Thanks! What “reviews” are we exactly talking about?

Is there a demo XML?

Dream-Theme

Hi, Sure! But, note that it’s not as vast as theme demo. Theme demo is huge. And if we just export it – rare server can import it.

I vote for page builders

Dream-Theme

Yes. Also there are 2 “Blog” page templates (list & masonry). Technically you can use them to create as many separated blogs as you like!

Default-user

perfect, can you add social links for the Authors Box and is there an Author page?

Dream-Theme

Hi, I’m afraid there’s no such built-in function. Probably there are third-party plugins for it out there in the wild.
