I have a question before i purchase this template… can you have white color available?

DigitalCavalry

Hello, thank you for your interest. The light version is planned, but this will be released as a separate theme. This version is Dark only :)

Hi DC, This is indeed a wonderful theme.

Before I buy, I’d like to know if you tested diacritics (special characters like ? ? ? ? etc.)

I plan on doing something in Polish and I have some bad experience with not displaying them properly.

DigitalCavalry

Hi,

Thank you. We tested now the Polish characters. This depends on font that you will choose. From all fonts that comes with Prestige this fonts support Polish characters:

- advent
- akaDora
- Engebrechtre
- Bebas
- Lobster
- Cuprum
- Edmunds
- Jesaya
- Kingthings
- Kirsty

It is also very easy to add some new font to this theme and we can help you with this too.

Hi DC,

I agree with the others that this really a wonderful theme!! I really would like to buy it but just want to make sure about one thing first… Is it easy to separate the portfolio into different categories? I will be using this theme mainly to display my portfolio of artwork and wish to be able to separate the portfolio into categories such as logos, brochures, illustration, etc.

Also, once you create the white version of this theme, would it be easy to interchange the two themes if we bought both versions? For example, if I went ahead and bought the dark version and set up my website, and then discovered I preferred the light version once you have completed it, will the two versions be similar enough that it wouldn’t be too much trouble to swap over to the light theme – without losing too many of the settings?

Thank you again…your work is really excellent!

Best regards, Christine

DigitalCavalry

Hi,

Thank you for your interest. In Prestige you can create multiple portfolios and use separate categories for portfolio projects, so it is possible what you described here and easy to achieve.

In regards to your second question, if you will buy now dark version and then decide to buy the light version and would like to make a switch, it will be possible and we can help you with this. Of course this will be possible only if you don’t make any changes in the code on your own, and you must use the latest version of this dark theme that will be available.

Best Regards,

DC

Question .. When I add content and use the ‘enter’ for a paragraph break or ‘shift+enter’ to create a line break it does not translate on the front end. All the copy runs together.

Do I need to manually add the P using the shortcodes or is there a setting I can change to use the paragraph and line breaks i enter when adding content

DigitalCavalry

Hi, yes, if you want to create for example two paragraphs, each paragraph must be in separate

tags (or dcs_p shortcode). The automatic formating is turned off because of some shortcodes functionality and thanks to this you have full control over content. To make creating paragraphs easier we added new buttons for HTML editor, so you just have to select all text for paragraph and click on p button (or dcs_p shortcode button).

Default-user

was afraid you were going to say that :) .. of course i’ve got a long list of data that I need to include line breaks and paragraph breaks about every third line ;) .. it does give alot of control over the final output though.

I’m still loving this theme. great job again!

Just wondering if you have a planned date for upgrades on this version. I am waiting to purchase it but kind of wanted to wait for the updates. Or if I buy it now how hard will it be to update to the new release later?

DigitalCavalry

Hi,

We should have this first update in this week for Prestige. If you will buy it now of course you will have access to all updates. You will have to download the file again and overwrite some files. This will be easy, we will list all the files that will need to be changed. Thank you for your interest.

Default-user

Will I be able to keep the content thats already in it? Sorry I am very new to this.

DigitalCavalry

Yes, you will keep all the content when you are making updates. It is easy and safe operation and it must be done carefully only if you make some big modifications in the code on your own hand.

Default-user

Well I will definitely get this theme soon as the update comes :) Hopefully its very soon with a bit lighter skins

DigitalCavalry

But remember that the light version will be a separate theme, this is only dark theme :)

How do I get the same list layout like the “Latest News” in your live preview’s homepage but with the blog section? I would like to store everything in Post (instead of News and Project) to retain compatibility with an eventual theme’s change (even if I doubt it, because the theme is gorgeous :)

Thx

DigitalCavalry

:) If you want to have recent posts displayed on homepage instead of recent news you have to use recent posts shortcode.

The content for homepage can look like this for example:

[dcs_heading size="1" align="left" mbottom="0" sub="Some subtitle text or you can delete this parameter"]Latest Blog Posts[/dcs_heading] [dcs_recent_posts count="4"]

And here you will find description for this shortcode: dcs_recent_posts.

Thanks for the advice, but I had already tried that shortcode. Problem is I can’t get the same layout as your live demo “Latest News”: thumb leftside, with text excerpt. The funny thing is that the same code (with dcs_recent_news instead of dcs_recent_posts) work flawlessly and does the work (exactly like your preview)

Default-user

Otherwise just tell me how I easily change “News” to “Artists” and I will leave it like it is :)

DigitalCavalry

Hi,

In our live preview we are using this code:

[dcs_heading size="1" align="left" mbottom="0" sub="DC Prestige Ultimate WordPress Dark Theme"]Latest News[/dcs_heading] [dcs_recent_news count="6"]

If you want to display posts you must change this code to this. I tested this code now and it works:

[dcs_heading size="1" align="left" mbottom="0" sub="DC Prestige Ultimate WordPress Dark Theme"]Latest Posts[/dcs_heading] [dcs_recent_posts count="6"]

But, now I see that you want to have something else here… It is not possible to have the same layout for posts like it is for news posts. What you mean by changing “News” to “Artists”, you want to change text labels in WP CMS panel? :)

Default-user

We wanna build a Indie Rock Community page, and we though we could use the “project posts” to store albums and songs, the “blog post” for news and stuff and the “news post” to catalogue all the artists. I know it’s a compromise, but the theme look too good to change it for another one builded more specifically for music. Any plan to do a “music” version? :)))

DigitalCavalry

I think it is possible to achieve with this theme, but maybe you will have to make small changes in some files depending on what you need in these sections. You can do this also in other way if you think its good – use different portfolio layouts to create for example artists and albums. For example, albums for projects portfolio Slider mode, and artists for One column mode. I think this could look great too :)

Default-user
team33 Purchased

Ok I will give it a try. In that case I will have to add a new “artist” taxonomy to relate the albums to the artist and use the project categories to identify the genre (metal, grunge, gothic etc). I’m not sure if my php skill are enough to mod the loop and funtions :( Do you plan to come to Spain for a holiday? :) Thank you for all your tips!!

DigitalCavalry

Hi, this might be not easy, but you can also make this without adding a new taxonomy :) You can use different projects categories for these two sections. You will have “artists” and “albums” as projects in one section, but this will save you a lot of time and work and the live result on the site will be the same. Both pages will use Projects Portfolio page template, but one will display only “artists” category and will work in “One column” mode, and the second page will display “albums” category and will work for example in “Slider” or “Three columns” mode.

I purchased this template and am having trouble with the contact form, when i click send it simply does nothing. Has anyone else ran into this problem?

DigitalCavalry

Hi, thank you for purchase.

You are writing about Contact Form widget on sidebar, or Contact Form page? There was a problem discovered with the widget today, we will fix this in the upcoming update. But if it is widget, you should get a message about error after click on Send.

the Contact Form page

DigitalCavalry

Contact Form page should work fine. This looks like some server issue. In the past we had this kind of problem and the solution was an upgrade the windows host account to some higher version of IIS . Maybe you can contact with your host to check this if this can be the case.

It wouldn’t be a hosting issue, my old theme sent mail fine. I didn’t start run into this issue until I switched to this theme. If you look at the page once you hit send it does nothing at all, so the its not the server restricting anything. The form simply isn’t functioning I should at least get an error message.

http://www.designbyhybrid.com/blog/contact-us/

DigitalCavalry

Yes, there should be at least error information after you click on Send. Don’t know why, but for some reason javascript is not working for contact page on your installation. We will have to investigate this more and we should have some answer for you tomorrow about this.

Very nice theme. Before I purchase I need to know more about the rating system. Is this just to rate articles or is it a full fledged rating system? By this I mean can you for instance have a movie rating site with multiple criteria i.e. plot, script, cinematography? I know there are rating systems out there for this but I was hoping it came with this theme.

Also how detailed is the help file? LOL I ’m not very experienced with WP as compared to Joomla and WP tends to frustrate me quite a bit.

Thanks!

DigitalCavalry

Hi,

Thank you. Rating system allows you to add one rating for post or pages, there is no option to add multiple ratings like in your description.

The documentation file is very detailed and covers every section of CMS . Almost every option is described in PDF user guide, so you shouldn’t have any problems with using Prestige theme. And of course we can help you if you would have any questions.

I am also having issues with the excluding categories on pages, it doesn’t seem to be functioning.

DigitalCavalry

Where are you trying to exclude a category. This option (in Custom Page Settings) works only with blog page template. Can you describe this a bit more?

Hi DC,

I am trying to use the Classic Vintage Yellow (Wide) theme on my website, along with the Progress slider. I wish to use a different background for the homepage than for the rest of the site. I have thus disabled the option for “Force the same background for homepage”. No matter what I do though, it simply will not use the home.jpg or home2.jpg for the home page background:( (I have uploaded a custom home.jpg that I wanted to use.) What am I doing wrong?

If you use firebug and go to my page http://www.crissi.com/portfolio and change the background from page.jpg to home.jpg, you will see the image I am trying to use.

Thank you kindly for your help,

Christine

Hi DC,

Never mind about my question above about the home.jog background not showing up… everything is working correctly now. I had not set the “Static Page” option under the “Reading Settings”.

Thank you, Christine

DigitalCavalry

Yes, the “A static Page” option must be set. I am happy you already resolved this :)

Hi,

you say:

The light version is planned, but this will be released as a separate theme.

Have you a date for the release?

Thank you.

Hi,

We don’t have an exactly date for this release, we want to release it as soon as possible, but I can’t tell when this will be ready for upload.

Thank you for your interest.

I recently came across another issue with this theme that I’m sure can be remedied somehow, just not by myself. Basically, I want to place a vimeo video on my homepage. I tried using all of the sliders but as imagined they only accepted images. I also tried using my own custom code to embed the video, but the slider always appears even when not in use. Then I tried using an image in the slider with a [dcs_lb_link] so that the video would pop up in lightbox, but that too failed to work (404’d).

Is there any way to make this happen? I could either use a proper way to lightbox the video as the destination link on a slider or I could use the exact code I’d have to change from the homepage template to kill the slider completely and replace it with custom code.

I appreciate any help that can be given.

DigitalCavalry

Hi, In the upcoming update a video option for homepage is planned and there will be also an option to remove the sliders from homepage completely. This should be what you are looking for. At this moment you will have to make some small changes in the code. This update should be uploaded soon :) Thank you.

I just found the bit to change and fixed up what I needed. I was confused why editing the homepage template php file wasn’t showing any changes, until I changed the index php page as well. Simple enough to fix, but a GUI option to kill the sliders or embed video would be quite welcomed.

As always, top notch customer support Mr. Author!

on the blog page, when i choose what categories I’d like to exclude it still displays them anyway. I’d really rather not have to change themes again but i’m already tired of all the bugs this theme has.

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Please give us access to your admin panel via our Theme Forest profile contact form, maybe we can help you in this way. The problems that you mentioned work for others and for us, so this looks like some problem with your WP installation. Thank you.

just sent it over

DigitalCavalry

Thank you, we fixed this Blog issue. Portfolio category is now excluded from your Blog page. In the fields “Type here ID numbers…” you must insert ID numbers separated by comma and not the name of category.

We noticed also that you are using some widgets like “Categories” and “Archives”, for this you should use dcwp_Archives and dcwp_Categories instead. You will find information about this in the documentation file.

The contact form issue can be caused by javascript conflict of the other plugins that you are using, maybe this is the reason why java is not working for the Send button. You can check this by deactivating the non Prestige plugins, this can be a solution for that problem.

Just bought the template… Fantastic job!

The video shortcodes that use the built in player, is there a way to use a video hosted with amazon’s servers rather than my root? I like the video player built into the site but don’t want to use bandwidth from my server.

Thx

DigitalCavalry

Hi, Thank you!

In Prestige you can also embed videos from You Tube and Vimeo for example, but as for the amazon, it looks like amazon don’t allows to embed videos from their site or maybe it is possible in some way that I don’t know? :)

Default-user

Thank you for the quick reply.

How do I use a youtube URL in the flowplayer shortcode. I tried but it keeps wanting to pull a URL from my root domain.

DigitalCavalry

This shortcode works only for flowplayer, if you want to use videos from you tube you need to insert only the embed code, without this shortcode.

I see from other comments that you are working on a light theme for this, do you know have a time scale for this?

If it is a way off is there a way to make the central column lighter (ie white or similar) leaving the sides black?

Thank you :-)

EDIT : I now see from another comment that you do not have a release date for the light version. In that case is it possible to make the central column white?

DigitalCavalry

Hello,

Thank you for your interest :) Yes, we don’t have a release date for the light version at this moment.

It is possible to make the central column lighter, but this would be so much work that I don’t know if you would like to make these changes. Big changes in CMS plus maybe some other modifications.

Default-user

Thank you for the quick reply!

Is it possible to use my own background with this theme or do I need to stick with the ones provided?

Kind regards, Davy
