Hello, Very Nice Theme, A few quick questions. 1. Will this theme support complex forms i.e. Gravity Forms? 2. Is there a visual shortcode generator to make tables? 3. Can I create multiple portfolios? i.e. A portfolio for cars, trucks, motorcycles etc… Thank you! Frank

Hi,

1. Yes. It may require adding couple of lines of CSS, but our support staff will help with it.

2. Unfortunately there are no build in short codes for that. But you may take a look at this plugin: http://tablepress.org – it’s free

3. Yes

hi first of all kudos from you great theme. Everything so far working great.

Although i have a question.

we want to use catalog template in order to list our products. The concept behind the product show case is :

Menu Products sub menu Brand 1 Sub menu Brand 2 sub menu Brand 3

So the sub menu MUST be a full wind page with a short preview (not from the catalog) from all products at the end of each product we can add a button more and link to the specific category of the brand.

the problem at the moment is – when we create a full width page we can’t link to a catalog page cause it doesnt use the specific templated (catalog). also by clicking on the button more we want to display specific products and not all product eg. Catalog > Category >subcategory1 (we want to display the subcategory 1 only).

first thought was to duplicate the catalaog template but can’t display only one category.

shall we change anythning here?

‘terms’ => isset( $cats[‘catalog_cats’] ) ? $cats[‘catalog_cats’] : array() ( form dt-catalog.php) ?

Thank you in andance

Hi. A sortable portfolio would be much appreciated.

i mean jquery filterable portfolio

Dream-Theme

Well, it IS :) Portfolio is ajax-powered. Take a look at this link: http://pressmate.dream-demo.com/?page_id=1198#all/1/list

Default-user

Hi. Yes it is ajax powered. But i believe the filter effect is too slow right now. Can you please make filter effects like these : http://trendis.si/wp-themes/jumpy/#!/portfolio

Also plz think about making the same css overlay effects as in above link(for portfolio thumbnails).. I believe that will make your awesome theme even more better.

Dream-Theme

Those fancy effects are being achieved because all portfolio items are being stored in single document. You are loading all of them at once!

Most people that we saw using our themes have very extensive portfolios. And keeping all of them in single document would be disastrous. Just about people with slow internet connection and mobile users…

i love ALL your themes, i have the “Unicorn” one and im using it here and very happy with it!: http://www.lacomputerworld.com/

Now, im interesting to buy this theme BUT one thing i need, i wanna change the name of “Portfolio” to “Restaurant” and have it show the slug as ”?restaurant=” NOT ”?dt_portfolio=”. i have seen on your support forum how to do it but its printing me a 404 page.

Maybe you can add an Option to the theme options that allow customers change the name of “Portfolio” and it slug.

Please help me with that and i will get this theme.

thank you, Nachumi Eliyahu.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

It returns you 404 because you need to rewrite .httaccess every time you are changing slugs. Simply follow Dashboard -> Settings -> Permalinks and click on the “Save Changes” button.

is it possible to had a different header image to each page like how we can have different background images for each page. I see I can have different hompage header from content header, but I would like to have different content headers on other pages.

Dream-Theme

Hello,

Every page editing interface has “Custom Background” box…

Default-user

yes i do see that but that just for only the background..where I want to change the header background

Dream-Theme

In this case you need to create custom CSS file with custom rules for every page…

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Thanks for feedback. I’m afraid that the only possible way to do it in this moment is to hardcode menu with icons…

great job like usual :)

little question :

do you provide support for seo by host?

tks

Dream-Theme

Hi,

> it is last version of revolution slider?

yes, theme uses recent version of it.

> do you provide support for seo by host?

I’m afraid I can’t understand what’s “seo by host”. Can you please be more specific? Thanks!

keyser31

Excuse my ;) i would say do you provide support for seo by yoast ? ( the famous seo plguin)

Dream-Theme

:) Yes, theme supports that plugin

I want to buy a theme of your team. but I did not understand different between for example Nimble and Pressmate. what is different between them?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

First of all, design. Layout of the header. PressMate has build in styling for WooCommerce.

And huge technical changes “under the hood”. The most noticeable for webmaster is that Nimble still uses TimThumb for image resize; while PressMate utilizes native methods. Therefore rendering images in PressMate is way more effective and less resource consuming. Moreover it has less hosting-related issues.

Great theme. I am thinking of using it for a small business. One question: is it possible to create a full width google map?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Theoretically this can be done. But it requires considerable amount of customization which is, unfortunately, far beyond the scope of theme support :(

when are you gonna update the theme so the custom css/text overwrite will work.. we have tested it on several hosting and servers but non of them is working.. the source code is getting to long without the option.. pls. update the theme so he custom css overwrite tool work properly.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Well, it works pretty well on 3 other our themes with combined sales over 3000 :)

Have you contacted our support? In most cases it is the meter of couple of setting that varies from server to server. Please submit a ticket and our guys will resolve it really fast. Thanks!

Dream-Theme

Hi again,

I’ve asked our staff to found your account and ticket in our help desk. As I see, you do not want to provide accesses to your server. That’s OK – I understand you prefer to solve issues yourself and do not want to let strangers to your server.

BUT writing static css uses native wordpress functions. If it is not working properly – there’s something wrong with wordpress or server settings. Maybe your server simply requires some specific CHMOD to uploads folder. Maybe it is something else… Unfortunately we’ll not be able to tell what exactly is wrong until we see it.

Maybe you can give out staff temporary accesses to some isolated wordpress installation on your server? As soon as we figure out what the issue is and how to resolve it, we’ll provide you guide how this solution can be reproduced for rest of your WP installations.

Why can´t you fix this issue so that it will work on every server. I have more websites and more themes with this option that is included in the panel but never had the problems not even where I had installed your theme. I have done a test with other themes on the same website as I had installed your theme and everything worked fine. The theme that I had tested on the same server had the same option and didn´t had any problem. So I think it´s something wrong within your theme.

I’m afraid making something that works everywhere is impossible. Servers are different. Settings are different.

I have more websites and more themes with this option that is included in the panel but never had the problems not even where I had installed your theme.

We are using native wordpress functions to write static css file. Most probably, themes you are talking about uses their custom solution. This may work well for you and your hardware/software configuration. And in the same time fail for other buyers. So our attitude is to stick to WordPress codex as close as possible.

Though we will definitely investigate this issue in coming days and check it on different hostings. If improvements are possible, we’ll issue corresponding update.

Dream-Theme

btw, I’ll be grateful if you provide our support staff link(s) to theme(s) where this feature works on your hosting – we’ll study the difference and make appropriate conclusions/changes…

We have fixed this issue in the meanwhile.. The problem was that the theme needs a cgi-bin and .htacces to write on theserver side. I cant create a folder for the custom css on dedicated servers and VPS servers where it stores it´s custom css..

In the meanwhile.. We have tried to add a table from the TablePress plugin but it doesnt work cause the site doesnt have its own table in the css.. Could you create a small code that we can add into the css so that the table-plugin also works correctly..

We have an review website and we work with table plugin but as said, this theme doesn’t support any at this moment.

Please your update.. would be appreciated!

Hi, is it possible to add the slider (full Width) to all pages. I have a client that has this right now: http://d.pr/3saR

I want to rebuild this in wordpress with your template. And the image needs to be in the “Slider” or static. Also he wants the “Water” to be on the background but that would be no problem.

Hope that its possible let me know.

Thanks
