Dear author, some time ago I was interested in Radial website HTML template (not the WP version). Now I see that it is no more available. where did it go? Will it come back and available for purchase??

Pre-sale question about auto trader theme,

i really want to have my website similar to truecar website, so i want to ask you about search filter, can this theme have search filter like first, buyer need to select either brand or body type then if choose brand then model of that brand will come up, while choosing body type the brand that have that body type will come up and let the customer choose, something like this, , i want search filter to work step by step. because sometime it does not make sense in some case, for example ( assume that there is no convertible type in BMW) , when buyer click at brand BMW and there is convertible body type option for them to choose ( assume that there is no convertible type in BMW) just example

can this theme fix this or is there anyway for me to fix this if i use this theme , if it require any plugin to solve this please tell me thank

Unfortunately currently this feature will not be available.

and what about did the theme support this plugin “Ultimate WordPress Auction Plugin” because i want to make militating to have bid funtion

We haven’t really tested it, but it should be working fine as far as the functionality goes – cannot say about the style. If there is anything wrong with it, let us know, we will take a look into it.

Pre-sale Question 1.do you have paid customization service?

2.if i would like to have bid and auction function in each car listing, can you do that?

3. how long would it take?

4. and can you estimate the price of the customize service?

1. Currently we do not provide customization services due to our workload, we would suggest looking up a freelance developer un Envato Studios.

Usually I handcode my websites but due to a customer asking for a wordpress site for his auto sales business I decided on the radial theme….If things could go wrong they have down to the code,layout and responsiveness of this site….Slow loading as well….I do believe I could have purchased the html version and installed my cms much faster than this…So many coding errors that I have to ask…Do you build these from the ground up? Next would be the support- Ive had the same issue that I have emailed to support over and over again: 3 or 4 times today with no response..I did receive an email the first time with a response I had already tried..Adaptation to smaller screens? words cut off,images not aligned and occasionally breaks and the desktop version shines through on my smartphone..Is there anyway one of your support team members could possibly email me back and also include the demo files I requested atleast?

We replied to your email.


I see that in the previous questions it was indicated that this template is not compatible with e-commerce systems (WooCommerce, etc), but there are already two years that these issues have been made. So far already existed some way to make this system compatible with WooCommerce the other system?

Thanks, GN

Yes, currently it is not WooCommerce compatible.

I would like to purchase this website theme, but i would like to know, is is possible to use a different background image for the homepage? I would like to use a different image to the one of the desert road. Also the test drive reservations page, is it possible to change the calendar in such a way that the AM PM drop down box is hour specific, and an additional drop down box under it is there to select a specific service? Then i could use a pre selected duration of hours to use for each individual service from the drop down box, if you understand what i am going for? I wish to use this for my mechanics business but i feel the demo doesn’t show the right potential of this theme. Thanks

You will need to modify the theme images in order for replacing the background.
As for the reservations, currently you can set working hours, but the individual services will not be available.

This thème isn’t fully WPML compatible. If you want a good translation, you need modify theme because the theme use :

<?php the_content(__(‘Read more’, THEME_NAME)); ?>


define(“THEME_NAME”, ‘radial’);

In this case, you need go in WPML -> Theme and plugins localization -> check box “Automatically use theme or plugin text domains, when gettext calls does not use a string literal”

And add this in line 9 of style.css :

Text Domain: radial

Normaly is ok.

Information from WPML support / Communicated to the Radial support

with this compatibility i want just display correctly the_content in blog section (for the rest it’s ok)

i find this :

replace <?php the_content(__(‘Read more’, THEME_NAME)); ?>

by <?php the_excerpt(__(‘Read more’, THEME_NAME)); ?>

in news_style_1.php but idon’t have “Read More” button

ok i’ve find from the demo :

replace <?php the_content(__(‘Read more’, THEME_NAME)); ?>

by <?php the_excerpt(__(‘Read more’, THEME_NAME)); echo’[...]’; ?>

Read More…

in news_style_1.php and it’s ok
