Hi,

I am in the market for a dozen themes. I have a few pre-sales questions please.
  1. Does this theme have a child theme?
  2. Does it have a place for additional CSS in the control panel itself?
  3. Is it possible to re-create the theme EXACTLY in my domain including all the sliders? Will you help me re-create it if there are issues? I am particulrly looking for the EXACT dimentsions of all the images.
  4. What is the average response time for help issues raised? Thanks for your help.

Hi,

1. PressMate is compatible with child theme. Our support can even provide you a dummy for one.

2. No. We consider it to be unnecessary.

3. If I understood you correctly, it is possible (by making clone of database). BUT, all images on our demo site are copyrighted, so we cannot provide them.

4. Support requests are being processed on business days from 8:00 to 17:00 (GMT 0.0) [normally] within 24h in the order they were received. At this moment after first staffs reply average response time is hour or two. Sometimes less.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. 1. I need to to some css element changes to make the site compatible with the customer’s logo – background color etc. I do have to add css elements. My first preference would be a child theme so that when the template is upgraded, the additional css elements are not wiped out. If the template does not support a child theme, I would prefer a place in the template admin panel when extra css elements can be introduced. How does Pressmate handle this? 2. What I am planning to do is install the template as-it-is and substitute EVERY image. I am not interested in the copyrighted images. However, I need to have all the images in position so that I can see the image sizes. Is it possible to either have all the images from the demo OR have the image sizes for all the images? 3Cheers

Hey,

As I’ve said before PressMate works with child themes perfectly well. Moreover our staff can provide you child theme example (most probably we’ll include it to theme package in the next update).

Regarding image dimensions. In your case I consider installing all content from theme demo unnecessary: you can simply use FireBug or Chrome Dev Tools to define exact image sizes from our demo.

BTW, theme automatically crops images in case you do not want to manually “prepare” images for your site.

Hi, I just purchased the theme and was reading the manual and just realised that Pressmate needs PHP v.5.2.4 or greater. The server I plan on hosting it on runs 5.2.17. Any idea if it will run on this version? Or is it that its only been tested on PHP v.5.2.4 and that there is a chance it will work on older versions? Thanks.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

PHP v.5.2.4 is WordPress requirement, not theme itself. If you’ll be able to run the recent version of WordPress (v.3.5.1 at this moment), PressMate will work with no issues.

I’m loving this theme however the what annoys me the most is that you have to load media individually for photos, photo albums, slideshows, catalogs, porfolio etc. I am having to load the same images 5 times instead of just being able to pick from the Media Library. This is making me want to scream grrrrrrrrr

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Well, I know how it feels. We are going to introduce image reuse feature in one of next updates (as soon as it will be properly tested, so it’ll not be very soon).

Hi. Can you help me with a change on the width of the sidebar? The only thing that i dislike in your great theme is that. ┬┐How can i fixit? I look into the css got it seems to be not to simple like in others themes. Regards!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Yes, PressMate has more complicated CSS because its design is more complicated and it’s more customizable via WP-admin compared to other themes here on Themeforest. That’s why editing this theme code requires some extra efforts.

If you are familiar with CSS editing, you can use FireBug (FireFox plugin for web-developers) or Chrome web developers tools to define which style should be changed and where. Here’s an awesome screencast by WooThemes on how to use it: http://vimeo.com/20917974

Can you help me whit this? Im a coder, but the site is on production and idont want make it crash

Dream-Theme

Hi, I’m afraid that this amount of customization is to significant and if far beyond the scope of support. I’m awfully sorry :(

Hi,

Now trying to upload the theme via SFTP. It won’t install through WordPress admin dashboard… what might the reason be?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Most probably you server restricts the upload size. First of all what file are you trying to install? Is it “dt-pressmate_v.1.0.4.zip”? If not, unzip the package, find installation file called “dt-pressmate_v.1.0.4.zip” and try to install it.

If that ^ will not help, 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. Thanks!

Hi! I just would like to know, is it possible to add add facebook comments function for single portfolio item (it will be great!) and maybe also for each product? Also is it possible to add some of other meta labels for single items? This is very important for me. Thanks in advance!!!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

As far as I reckon, there are plugins to implement FB comments in WP themes. BUT please note that PressMate was not tested with them.

Hi Dream-Theme,

I was wondering if the URL can be fixed on portfolio due to SEO reasons. The main URL = mportfolio/, but gets redirected on entering to /portfolio/#all/1/list.

When I enter a portfolio item, it get’s redirected to /dt_portfolio/portfolio-item-name/.

How can I strip the /#all/1/list part and change /dt_portfolio/ to /portfolio/?

Kind regards, Bjorn Gulpen

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Our support staff can assist with changing the slug. (Please submit a ticket here: http://support.dream-theme.com )

But ” /#all/1/list” cannot be striped because of SEO :) You need those to let search engines to index your portfolio categories, pages, etc.

Hi, I can’t seem to install the theme by uploading the zipfile. I made sure I used the right zip file, and not the one with all the files in them ;-). I know I can install it manually, but I was just wondering if you might know what the problem could be?

Hello, I want to insert 2 blogs in my front page (I mean 5 posts of 2 cateogries).

So I’m using the insert blog feature, using “half” setting, so I have 2 columns showing each one 1 category with 5 posts inside.

However the format displayed in each blog (category), is weird, it shows 2 posts per line, no excerpt (even though I’ve configured it to show excerpts).

How can I show 1 post per line only, and display an excerpt.? Thanks

Hi,

I tried to create a homepage with the revolution slider full width (like I’ve done plenty of times with other themes), but I can’t seem to pull it of with this one. I don’t know what I might have done wrong, but the revolution slider is simply nog showing. I select the “page with slideshow (full width)” template, select the “revolution slider” radiobutton, and the appropriate slider from the select menu. I checked the slider, and every slide has the status “published”, and I read the theme’s manual back and forth, but I just don’t see what might be the problem. I’m on a deadline and I cannot wait till the 6th of may, so I’ll be forced to use another template. I would appreciate it though if you could help me out in case I would use the theme for another project.

thanks

Peter

hi, can I have the main navigation to stretch across the page, eg. same width as the header area? And can I change the top header background color as in your demo examples background changes on full page? Thx

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Starching the navigation line can be done in CSS . If you are familiar with it, you can use FireBug (FireFox plugin for web-developers) or Chrome web developers tools to define which style should be changed and where. Here’s an awesome screencast by WooThemes on how to use it: http://vimeo.com/20917974 Otherwise you can consider hiring a freelancer to help you.

I want to add a shortcode to the nav.php file and it wont let me display it. How can i get this working properly?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Shortcodes cannot be added to .php files (normally you are DECLARING shortcodes in them)... Can you specify what layout/functional you want to achieve? – I’ll try advice something. Thanks!

Why is this running such an outdated version of jquery? Are there plans for an update soon?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Theme uses jQuery build into WordPress. In upcoming WP v.3.6 jQuery will be updated to 1.9 ;)

Default-user

But will that ensure that I can use the modern plug-ins that I want to? Will there be an update to the theme when this takes place?

I got this from our plug-in author:

“The problem occurs because of that code in your website source (line 39):

<script type=’text/javascript’ src=’http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/ ??1.6.2/jquery.min.js?ver=3.5.1’></script>

It is very old version of jQuery and all modern plugins like Live Chat would have problem with this version. So you will want to update current theme if any update is available. Try to contact with theme author and ask how to update jquery version.”

Dream-Theme
<script type=’text/javascript’ src=’http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/ ??1.6.2/jquery.min.js?ver=3.5.1’></script>
