Many thanks.

Hi Tsawko,

The demo uses Proxima Nova from Typekit and ranges from 15px for Paragraph text up to 30px in size for Heading text.

Hi gadgetxpert,

Yes you can use your own logo. It would suit a tech blog and there will be future updates.

Gavin, will you do customization to this theme? I’ve a popular tech blog with 22.8K+ subscribers, and I badly need to revamp the design. You can add me on skype (Username: iStartcup)

Hi moddtled,

We don’t do theme customization ourselves but have a group of approved modifiers who do – they can be found here – http://bit.ly/XpxqnH

Hi, how works the quote box among the posts? Can I edit it in the dashboard?

Hi ricardocap,

The quotes are a post type which you can choose, they then display as you see them in the demo.

I just purchased the Principle theme and I was under the impression that I would be able to make the theme look like your demo theme featured on the sale page (i.e. http://demo.oboxsites.com/principles/), however I am having difficulties specifically with the fonts.

I have tried the following a) Reviewed this discussion board and noticed that you suggested to the user tsawko that the font being used was Proxima Nova, however on the typography page under theme options in wp-admin, I see no such choice to select this font (despite seeing a number of other options). b) In your follow up to tsawko you say that this font is on typekit. I imagine the site you refer to here is www.typekit.com, does that mean that I have to pay for this particular font in addition to paying for the theme? I was under the impression that I was purchasing a theme that I could easily replicate the demo site appearance with by simply installing the theme and setting a few options.

Essentially, I’d just love to see step by step directions to reproduce the demo site that you have listed on themeforest. Is this possible?

Really would love to make this theme work as per the themeforest listing. Thanks!

Hi thesmartmoney,

The theme demo is using Proxima Nova via a paid typekit.com subscription. They do have a free trial library account which we would advise fonts like Museo Sans, Open Sans and Soleil if you wanted to use a theme like Proxima Nova but weren’t ready to take up a Typekit subscription. You may also use any of the google font library.

I’ve posted a question about this on your internal forum, but since I need to resolve this question I thought I’d post it here as well. I also think the answer would be highly beneficial to many other people who purchase the theme.

I have gone ahead and purchased a typekit theme (at the $49.99 level that gives me access to Proxima Nova). I’ve pasted the codes into site, however I don’t know how to actually use Proxima Nova as the font – can’t see the option to use it anywhere. Can you please advise? Thanks!

Hello,

1) I registered at typekit.com, but how can I now use the font proxima-nova at the theme on my website??? there is no option to setup. I would pay for it, but I don’t know how to use it on the theme. 2) would be great if there would be a possibilty to have the sidebar on the right side. 3) would be great to use widgets on the sidebar.

Thanks.

Hi, can I choose to display only 10 or 5 projects per page in the portfolio section?

Hi ricardocap,

Yes it would be a case of publishing 10/5 projects per portfolio category.

Hi,

What is the best way to switch out the blue swirling background? Is there a way to customize this at all?

Thanks,

If you take a look at the documentation for the theme there should be a piece in their about changing the background.

Can i change the background in the sidebar to a picture?, i love the theme. But the portfolio is quite a turn off though, Its to many clicks, Should be one pop-up slider you can browse from in a grid of pictures, in my opinion. But maybe that is fixable?

obox

You can change the sidebar background to a picture. We’ll take your feedback about the portfolio onboard. It would require some customization to change it to what you’ve described.

How do I use the theme font Proxima Nova used in demonstration. In this section typography font does not appear

obox

Hi Vini, the proxima nova font can be added by using a service like http://typekit.com ( I believe they have a free account type over there ). – Gavin

Hi,

I love this theme and i think to buy it, but there are something that i dont see this theme has which i really want - besides the left sidebar, it is really wonderful if we can have a right sidebar where we can put ads, tweets, widgets, etc

obox

Hi dzulfriday, the only widgetized area within Principles is the footer. We decided to not add a sidebar to keep visiting users focused on the content. Our other themes do however have sidebars, you can check them out there – http://themeforest.net/user/obox/portfolio – Gavin

Default-user

But this theme has fixed position left side bar which i really like.

obox

Yes, although it’s more like a vertical header area which contains the logo and menu. Unfortunately at this time it is not widgetized. – Gavin
