looks nice but i don’t like the home page in the demo, needs more.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Can you please specify what you mean by “more”. More elements (portfolio, blog, couple of sliders…) on homepage? Thanks!

Default-user

Yeah definitely more elements. I like how the SmartIT theme’s home page though that theme doesn’t have as many different elements but the layout is really good.

Great! When you disable top line, mobile menu not show… ;)

Hey,

Thanks you so much for pointing on that – we’ll fix it asap. As you see, we made quite an extensive demo panel – unfortunately bug crept in :)

Nice and very comprehensive theme !

- is demo content (xml) available ? - is it possible to use own/custom fonts ?

Thx. Best regards.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Demo xml is included. Theme contains all Google Fonts available at this moment.

ygirod

Thank you. But is it possible to use our own fonts if unavailable in Google fonts ?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

This will require certain amount of customization: you’ll need to hook up fonts in theme header and change the font family for desired text in CSS

Is there a custom css box in theme admin?....are there unlimited sidebars? Is this a pagebuilder theme? Sometimes pagebuilders are tricky for clients.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

> Is there a custom css box in theme admin?

No. We believe that experienced users will prefers editing css file.

> are there unlimited sidebars.

Yes, every page can (but not required to) has a unique sidebar. Though we did not implement this feature for posts: people are not requesting it much.

> Is this a pagebuilder theme? Sometimes pagebuilders are tricky for clients.

Yes and no. In PressMate you can build page right in WYSIWYG. On this page you can find couple of screencasts about it: http://pressmate.dream-demo.com/?page_id=1113

So you just cater your themes to experienced users only? not good practice. Also when updating themes in the future this will keep all your css changes in place. Also, remember I purchase themes for clients who are not experienced users and need things to be easy after the site is handed over…not a bad theme…good luck.

Dream-Theme

That’s incorrect conclusion :)

We are building our themes foremost for regular users. You can actually customize almost any element of theme via Theme Options panel!

I was just saying that if user knows how to edit css, he’ll be able to edit it in file. I believe that “quick css” feature in many themes is really a bad practice: it creates additional request to DB every time your site pages are rendered. The best solution is to create a “child theme” and keep all your customization there. This will help to preserve customization when updating theme and will keep inexperienced users from ruining it.

wesleysoccer

of course you can create a child theme which is just one additional step…theme looks great. good luck I will consider for next project.

Wow, great work! A few questions: 1) Can the homepage display recent blog posts in the same way as recent projects (with thumbnail and hover-effect)? 2) Is there a feature to display “related posts” on single blog post view? 3) Are the images displayed on the blog view (showing blog excerpts) automatically pulled from the image in the blog post? 4) Is there an option to show a floating “scroll to top” button on the lower right-hand corner?

I have bought this amazing theme and this one is the best I have ever seen on Themeforest. There is only 1 thing that I dont like at all.

In your preview on themeforest the sourcecode is very nice done but I have installed the theme and made some modifivcastions in your admin panel and now I see a hige code more than 1000 lines of css before the h1 and content comes… It’s the <style type=”text/css”> that is generated in the main code and the h1 is all down till 1500th line.. this is not good for google an SEO, which means that your code is not well done yet.. Please your support for this issue?! I need to hide this code in the main css and not to display in the sourcecode..

Thnx.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Glad you’ve asked this question. In your “WP-admin > Theme Options > Misc” find the “Create static css” option. Check it and save options.

Dream-Theme

That will move huge block of CSS (that is responsible for theme appearance) to separate file and you’ll get clean and nice code :)

I did that and the site looks now like it’s missing its css.. Totally not working the css overwrite button. Please your help.

Default-user

When I choose some of the options in the panel, like a background, boxed layout and sidebar positions, than the whole site looks very strange. Like the custom css overwrite is not corresponding correctly.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

It seems there’s an issue with whiting that file. It’s possible on SOME hostings and that’s why this option is disabled by default.

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 theme setup (it is 100% free). Thanks!

For you customer support portal, I deleted the purchase code, cause I never had to use it before. Anyway, you can see that I have purchased the theme on themeforest as you can see the purchased mark. Could you describe here how I can fix this issue and why it isnĀ“t overwriting or writing at all.. I have changed permissions in filezilla but it still doesn’t work. Or you could update the theme with the right codes so it will work on every host.

Dream-Theme

I’m front-end developer. And your issue is server related – our programmer must take a look at it.

You can download duplicate of your license certificate with purchase code under “downloads” tab of you ThemeForest profile.

I understand that it requires couple of additional steps to create a ticket. And that can be a bit inconvenient. But this is done with purpose of optimizing support process: there are more than 30 items in our portfolio and centralized support desk with dedicated staff is crucial to handle support effectively.

Thank you so much for understanding!

The Pressmate theme looks really well for my new project. A few pre-sale questions are below:

1. Reviews feature with several criteria?

2. Double sidebars page’s layout?

3. Can my customer create the post with slider instead of feature image? If yes, may it be also clickable in order to see all images in lightbox gallery too? (I can show here the link for such post with clickabled slidershow inside, if it need for understanding what I mean in this question, but I don’t want to advertise some other authors in Pressmate theme’s comments section). Or this portfolio-post with slider inside: http://pressmate.dream-demo.com/?dt_portfolio=portfolio-post-with-comments Is it possible to open the slider images in lightbox by click-on image? By the way, the slider blue-arrows don’t work in my Chrome (under IE it is ok).

4. Is it possible to use the same gallery’s lightbox, which is perfect, for the product page’s lightbox too? If no, is it possible to allow of using the same keyboards control for product lightbox?

5. As I read here, the theme doesn’t provide custom sidebars for each posts. Ok, noted. The question: is it possible to make the post sidebar as float? My customer doesn’t like the narrow view of content area in case of large article inside, for example (when the visitors scroll down of the post on their full-hd screens).

Please, excuse me for my english. Thanks for answers in advance!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Based on criteria above, I’m afraid I cannot recommend PressMate for you: this will require significant amount of customization that may appear expensive and inadvisable

I just bought this theme. It seemed to download properly. HOWEVER…It will not load through the upload zip option on bluehost. The technical support guy there tried to help but told me that it will not load via ftp correctly either. It appears as an option but when chosen, it shows all kinds of errors. Maybe I am doing something wrong. The instructions about the pugins are conflicting…sooo, I have tried both activating and deactivating the specific plugins mentioned. I need help or would like a refund.

Good job on this theme! We are currently needing to make some css customizations and we’re not seeing a normal override section so that we can adjust some of the styles appropriately. Are we missing something? For example, in this case, we want to set #page.boxed { max-width: 100%; } and we also want to remove the top 30px margin as well.
