Hi,

Is there any documentation about what the different templates look like? Especially page template 2/3/4???

AndonDesign

Hi,

They are the same as the default template. I’ve provided them so that you can have additional options for pages to choose different widgets for the sidebar and also sidebar position (left or right).

Regards

Default-user

I see. So how would I go about specifying a sidebar on the right for page template 2 pages?

AndonDesign

Hi,

you can set the sidebar position under the PureVISION Options in the backend under “General Options”, look in there

Hey internq7

Great work bro! and lot’s of kudos from the forum!! Question: are the PSD files included? I want my designer to tweak the graphics and assuming she will need them.

2nd Q: Just for my own knowledge, what did you do different/better in your code than WP SEO plug in? SEO is going to be very important to me with my new company launch and want to do everything possible to get good rankings.

Thanks for the great work and your feedback

Hi JD,

thanks for your interest in my theme.

Yes, PSD ’s are included, always!!!

And yes, SEO is very important to anyone. What I’ve done with the theme is I’ve provided a couple of very important SEO features that would only compliment SEO plugins not compete with them in any way.

As a matter of fact most SEO plugins wouldn’t be able to do the SEO enhancements that my theme offers because it would require structural changes to the theme.

This is from the theme’s description talking about the SEO in case that you haven’t seen it:

In the code hierarchy, the main content block is placed before the sidebar regardless of the sidebar position, so it is crawled first by search engines. Another very powerful SEO feature has been implemented regarding Heading (h1, h2, h3,...) tags in that on the Home page the ‘h1’ tag is assigned to the site name and the rest of pages/posts/archives etc., the main Title has been assigned an ‘h1’ tag.

Regards

Thanks for your quick response. Yes, I did read the code hierarchy section on your page, that’s what prompted to ask the question :-) Keep in mind I’m not a coder or designer…so I like to understand from the coders perspective what gets results. Thanks for your time and I will be purchasing your theme this weekend!

AndonDesign

Great! Thanks

Hi, I really like the looks of your theme and may have missed it in the comments, but am wondering if the height of the slider can be adjusted so it is narrower?

AndonDesign

Here’s a screenshot of the backend: http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/156538-purevision-wordpress-theme?index=1

As to for your other question, I don’t understand what you mean by this: “I was more wondering if any of them could be adjusted so more of the content would show ‘above the fold’”, please clarify??

Regards

Default-user

Sorry, I should have been clearer – “above the fold” is an old print reference to what one sees on the top half of a folded newspaper without opening it up. On a web site I think of it as what the visitor sees when they first come to your page without scrolling down. This is important for me because i discovered that some of the people i market to don’t bother scrolling down a page – if they don’t see something that grabs their attention in the first few seconds without touching a mouse, they move on.

That was why I was wondering if the slider height could be reduced, so there would be room for at least column headlines and maybe a line or two of content to catch their interest without having to scroll.

Which brings me to another assumption i should check. Am I right in assuming that the Home Page is static and can link to either static pages or posts?

Thanks for your help with this.

AndonDesign

Hi,

yes, you can make the slider shorter, and yes you can assign any page to be home page. Also I’ve provided the option to remove the slider from the home page all together.

Regards

Me again and sorry for the question but really like your theme and want to get a site up quickly.

On your demo site on the homepage, how did you achieve the look on the homepage before content and homepage column1/2/3/4 widget areas?

did you add the styling and images all through the “text” widget? Can you use shortcodes in the text widget area?

It would be good to add to your documentation the actual content you’ve used to generate your demo site as txt files.

AndonDesign

Email me and I’ll give you the code.

In the next few days I’ll provide the code used for the Home page Examples as source so people can copy it

Hi,

first of all thank you for this great theme!

I have a question where i didn’t found a answer until yet (in the template documentation etc.).

My website is mainly a personal weblog. So i would like to change the “blog page” as the “home page”. Is there a possibility to set another site (the site “blog” for example) as the starting page (Home Page which is shown when you enter the url of the website)?

P.S. Sorry, but my english isn’t very well…

Thank you for your help.

Regards

AndonDesign

Hi,

yes, you can, Go to Settings > Reading > A static page (select below) > Front page: > Choose your Blog page from the dropdown menu.

Hi,

Great theme! Does it work smoothly on Wordpress 3.0 Multi User?

Thanks, Thomas

AndonDesign

Hi,

thanks for your interest in the PureVISION theme!

What is “Wordpress 3.0 Multi User”??

Regards

AndonDesign

Now that I think about it you probably mean WP Multisite ( http://mu.wordpress.org/ ), correct??

I think it should be fine, I had some people use my previous theme QualiFire with MU and said it was fine. PureVISION has been built on top of QualiFire, so it should be fine also.

Regards

Hello,

Sorry if this has already been answered in the comments but how do you get the sub-menu to appear on the left hand side in your Features page of the demo site?

Have you done this by creating a new menu in the menu options, giving the features pages a unique page template and then drop the menu via the widget area for that template?

If so, does that mean you are limited to only having a limited number of unique sidebar menus?

The reason i am asking, is that say you have 10 top level pages with all having children under them. I would like to show on the left of each parent the sub pages contained in there. Is there an easier way of doing this?

AndonDesign

Hi,

to have the sub-pages show up like I have them in the demo (under “Styles”, look in the sidebar): http://idesignmywebsite.com/purevision/?page_id=1209

well, you need to arrange the hierarchy of your pages under the Pages menu as it was done before WP3 .0, just assign the sub-pages a parent and it should work fine.

Regards

This is one of the best templates I have seen thus far,, great Work!

AndonDesign

Thank you!!

Awesome theme! I’m in the process of getting it up and running on my site.

A few questions-

1- I cannot seem to get the portfolios to work for me. I have been able to get as far as getting an image thumbnail to show up following the instructions in “Option 1” of your youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD3NUW4w3Cw, but I cannot get the image to pop out higher res when clicking on the thumbnail.

I’ve got “pretty photo” and “get the image” both installed.

2- Is there any way to limit the number of blog posts that show up on the blog page? I’d like to limit the page to the first 3 or so posts.

3- Is there any way to exclude certain categories (besides portfolio categories) from the blog?

Finally, any chance of getting a support forum or faq setup?

AndonDesign

Hi,

Thanks for the purchase!

1- The video you are referring to is not for this theme but for my previous theme QualiFire. Even though some elements are the same between the two themes over all there are some differences, for example the custom fields have different names. I would say not to confuse you stick to the Documentation for the Portfolio section Pay attention to the videos titles listed under my YouTube channel, I named them according to Theme names. Let me know if you still have hard time setting up the portfolio section after reviewing the documentation.

2- Yes, there is, it’s part of WordPress core settings, go to “Settings -> Reading -> Blog pages show at most” field.

3- To get this specific as to what categories to exclude besides portfolio you would have to do it by hand, I’ll show you how: edit ‘page-Blog.php’ around line #37. Change this line:
$query_string = "cat=$portfolio_cats_with_minus&paged=$paged";
to this:
$query_string = "cat=-1,-2,-3,$portfolio_cats_with_minus&paged=$paged";

where ‘-1,-2,-3’ are example categories (id’s) that you want to exclude.

Try this and let me know if that works

A support forum is a possibility in the future, I’ll see how the theme evolves, so far it’s been pretty quiet in terms of support questions. I did setup a quick FAQ here: http://themeforest.net/item/purevision-wordpress-theme/faq/156538 for now.

Hi there,

Lovely theme, great work. :D

I am trying to change the slider type and images for my website. The problem is, I dont think the facility to add the slide images is working in my editor. When i click on ‘Add Slide’ – nothing happens and when i open a file dialog to add a path of an image to be uploaded and then I save changes, there is nothing updated.

There is also an indication that says ‘No Javascript Image’ in the dialog area.

Am i right in thinking that my browser has disabled this functionality or am i doing something stupid?

Could you help?

Many thanks

Did you get the email I sent ? I assume I need to send an email via the option to do so from this site?

Thanks

AndonDesign

I just answered on your email.

Everything looks fine, I was able to upload two image and it worked right away.

Yeah, I stopped using IE8 and moved to chrome.

Everything works fine with chrome. Not sure if anyone else was having the same problem?

Hi,

i am trying to add more than one image to the Cycle 2 slider but the I can’t seem to add any more images. I click on the green add slide button nothing happens.

if i choose any other slider I am able to add more images.

I am tried it in several browsers.

Any suggestions?

Hi, I’m not sure what might be causing it.

If you’d like email me with backend access to your blog and I’ll have a look.

HI great looking theme, what Newsletter plugin did you use?

Thanks.

J.

AndonDesign

Hi,

I’m not using any newsletter plugin, this is just a pretty button ;)

hi there,

In your demo site, certain menu items are not click-able and others are.

For example the “slider” menu is not click-able but the children are. How did you achieve this?

AndonDesign

you can achieve this with the new WP3 + Menu syste under “Appearance -> Menus”,

Great job on the theme template. Love it, but working through some of the recommended plugins seem to have conflicts.

In particular, PrettyPhoto has a conflict upon activation. Started thread at Wordpress because the developer website is MIA

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /home/idav00/public_html/timesdigital/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-prettyphoto/wp-prettyphoto.php on line 21

Not sure if anyone else is having problems with this or not…but here’s my thread. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wp-prettyphoto-problems-with-activation-syntax-error-in-activation?replies=1#post-1914174

In my previous response, I wrongly entered the PHPMyAdmin version, however, I did update to PHP5 through the Lunarpages CP, however, the lightbox is not working. I’m going to look around and see what’s happening.

The pages are located here…

AndonDesign

Hi,

well, good thing you updated to PHP5 , the version you had was pretty outdated.

Let me know if you found a solution. Try uninstalling and installing the plugin again. Noone else seemed to have reported this problem here, I certainly cannot reproduce it in my environments. You can always email me with access to your blog so that I can have a look.

Thanks

Before I buy the theme, I need to learn something. Is it possible for me to place facebook, twitter etc. social icons instead of FEEDBACK button on the left?

By the way, nice theme.

AndonDesign

Hi,

well, you can always turn off the Feedback button and install a plugin that will allow you to do that.

The Feedback button in my theme is one single button and you can only have one link assigned to it. The link could be anything. Also if you want the button to say something else other than “Feedback”, I’ve provided the PSD for you to change it.

Regards

Default-user

As far as I understand I am not allowed to place more than one social icon. Sorry, I dont know wordpress very well. But, is it possible to integrate a social icons plugin of more than one link(twitter, myspace, formspring.me etc) to the place of FEEDBACK button? Or I can place just one link (facebook,twitter etc.)

This information is very important for me because website will be for a social media agency. Therefore, social icons must be visible on the page.

Thanks for your answer.

AndonDesign

Oh, I see,

yes, there are tons of plugins for WordPress that offer variety of options and layouts for social media, for example here’s a couple I found right away that you can use:

Hello,

I am having really bad issues with my site taking over 12 seconds to load with this new theme. That is with the W3 Total cache plugin installed. I know that some of the issue is my hosting company…and they are supposedly working on their issue. However, all the testing sites I use for testing the load times show that there are too many css, js, and other files to load. I noticed that your theme does not have this problem on your demo version, and loads instantly.

Sorry for the saga, here is my question. You use W3 total cache plugin according to your source file as I do, but also use a plugin call APC (Alternative PHP Cache). Is this the only performance enhancement you have? And, if I install APC , it will override the object-cache.php file that W3 Total Cache plugin uses as it is named the same filename and needs to be installed to the same directory…Is that how you did it?

I know that this really has nothing to do with your theme per-say, but if you could shed some light for me that would be great as my theme install is too cumbersome to run as-is.

AndonDesign

Hi,

you guessed correctly, I have W3 Total Cache with APC enabled, so I’m not caching on disk but with APC , which is a key. In some cases ‘disk’ cache could have the reverse effect.

Hosting is also very important, it’s the backbone. I’m on a VPS , found out the hard way the most Shared Hosting are a joke and are not to be trusted.

I’ve also minified ONLY the css files, go through W3 TC documentation on that, it’s pretty straight forward. After you’re done with it you’ll end up with one css file combining all of them. Well, the ‘custom.php’ will be the only one excluded but that wouldn’t make difference.

Don’t combine the JS files in the theme into one, it will not work.

Check out this tutorial on how to set it up for optimal results: http://yoast.com/w3-total-cache/

Hi…any ETA on when you will have the updated version available? I will be purchasing your theme, but want to wait for .1 ver. Thanks! Looking forward to using PureVision!

Cheers!! JD

AndonDesign

Hi,

what updates are you looking for in particular?

I’ll most likely roll out an update overnight. However, all updates are queued for approval by ThemeForest staff, which usually takes up to 24hrs.

Regards

SynergyRecruiters

Thanks! When your theme was launched, I was reading the comments and there were a few features that you were adding in the first update. If it was going to be a day or two I would wait. I will be buying as soon as it’s done. Thanks again for the kickass work!

If you are looking for an extraordinary theme, with advanced configuration options, I would recommend this theme. Very important: the support is amazing.

This is an unsolicited testimonial, just because I am very happy with this theme. I bought many others here on Themeforest, but this theme is in my opinion superior.

I know that this comment will be flagged as inappropriate, but he… I am just expressing my happiness.

Keep up the good work!

AndonDesign

... I think your comment is very appropriate!!! ;)

Thank you, glad you like my work, I appreciate all feedback.
