How do I see what updates were made for each update?

What an awesome theme, I just want to confirm one thing, when you mentioned “PressMate utilizes native methods”, we’re talking about the native WP gallery, correct? As in no third party function or plugin displaying the Galleries?

Does this theme support Quform?

Dream-Theme

Hi, there were no dedicated tests with that plugin.

But there is a free alternative: Contact Form 7

I bought the Theme, but it works not with German word press installation. The support is very bad. I recommend not to buy this theme.

Dream-Theme

Hello, Thank you for feedback.

Theme will work fine on every wordpress installation regardless language… even if it is Chinese or Hindi.

Regarding support. We are live people and not processing support requests on weekends. It is stated everywhere in our profile and theme description.

So can you please specify what exactly is wrong with our support and theme itself?? Thanks!

Is there a possibility to remove the ‘plus sign’ from the hover effect on images? Thanks.

Yes. 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.

BTW, @marcuseby suggested you a good solution:

a.alignleft i.fade, a.photo i.fade, ul.gallery li i.fade { background-image: none !important; }

This ^ line must be appended to “css/style.css” file

I’m just guessing, but these are all probably things they’re working on, but just so you know before you buy, here’s a rundown on a few things NOT in the theme as advertised, or NOT working, or just NOT fixed yet.

  • DT Twitter widget and Twitter shortcode don’t exist
  • Shortcodes don’t work in any of their created post types/taxonomies/widgets
  • Portfolio shows meta data in the top left corner, which is non-addable or non-existent in purchased theme

Other than that, more than what is promised is in there.

Don’t know what the length of time between updates is… But definitely not lazy ‘pump em out’ theme developers.

They put a lot into their themes, and 95% of it works as stated. Between than most of the theme builders out there, so thats good. Response time for support, pretty quick. Less than 1 day response time.

easy CSS fix:
a.alignleft i.fade, a.photo i.fade, ul.gallery li i.fade { background-image: none; }

thanks!

Just a correction to my earlier post:
  • Portfolio shows meta data in the top left corner, which is non-addable or non-existent in purchased theme
Is incorrect. This is not meta data, simply created in the wysiwyg editor. I’ll have to add my own meta fields using piklist. So that leaves only two weak spots out of like 100. :-) Pretty good theme.

Hi, Thank you so much for feedback.

I’d like to clarify things retarding twitter. Actually widget is there, but it is deactivated (our support staff can help activating it).

We deactivated it in theme because Twitter is planning to block third-party widgets later this year. And sometimes they are switching off current API. In such moments your site will not load at all because of twitter widget… so we choose “lesser evil”

Ouch. Sure hope it doesn’t affect, oh I don’t know, every single other twitter widget out there. :-) Just another social media company trying to control everything. Thanks for the explanation.

( To cut the long story short, soon you will not see much twitter widgets in themes :( )

Could you implement a nice WP TableReload or TablePress plugin for tables cause they don’t work in the theme.. We have tried to fix it on many ways but it seems they just don’t work. A nice and elegant table for this plugin would be a BIG PLUS also for others who using it.

Let us know.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Thanks for feedback. I’ll pass your request to our coder. I think we’ll come up with something in a week or two.

Hi Dream-Theme,

I was wondering if I is any chance that I can replace the custom menu with the √úberMenu one. Any idea? Or will it break the template?

Kind regards, Bjorn Gulpen

PS. Awesome theme!

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 :( Please consider hiring a freelancer to help with it.

Without uploading a logo I have no header! Why doesn’t it pick up the Site Tile and Tagline like other themes? My site is nameless until I have the chance to get a graphic designer to work on a logo. :(

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Actually it’s not that complicated to create a logo written in fancy font. Please, submit a request via our online help-desk http://support.dream-theme.com – our staff will assist you. Thanks!

When I click on a second or third level menu item there is no Page heading like there is when you click on the main menu item. And no breadcrumbs so its impossible to know what page you are looking at. Please fix. ;)

Dream-Theme

Hi,

There are no breadcrumbs in PressMate. Also we prefer not to display page Titles automatically (since you can create any title you like via WYSIWYG).
