I have a new question: Can you view full page ONLY for FORUMS without widget? http://para.llel.us/themes/razor-wp/groups/surfing/forum/#LoginPopup
Parallelus

I think you’re saying can the Forum page be a full width layout and not have a sidebar? Yes, you have complete control of the layouts with Razor for any area of your site.

Hi,

The 3 column post sample doesn’t exist in the live demo ?

Parallelus

Woops! I guess I forgot to update that page on the demo. You can have any number of columns for any page of the site. We try and show some examples but really if you see the 3 column layout of another section it will be the same. Here’s an example, just imagine that you have the content from a post in the middle and anything you wan in the sidebars:

http://para.llel.us/themes/razor-wp/page-samples/sidebar-left-and-right/

It could also be setup with the large center column on the left and the sidebars both on the right, or the reverse of that. It’s not like a set of templates we created for you to choose from, instead we have a layout builder in the admin that permits you to apply any column structure you choose to any area of your site or a single page/post.

Man I can’t believe you BANNED me from support forums for asking legit theme questions. I really did need help with your theme. One of your support fellow-mate was wrong about my question calling it customization which it wasn’t and YOU KNOW it Andy. It’s a fair theme question and now I am banned for ever getting into that dispute with whoever his name was? Asking how to get rid of spaces in your complex theme is a crime? If I wrote this Theme I’d simply help my users. To think I don’t even ask that many question. You guys spent an entire days trying to solve this other guys stupid issues and his questions are so NON theme related. It’s more ignorance of css and installing WP in general and you all went out of your way. He then turned around and asked Envato for a refund on you. I turn around and help him out for the team. What gives? I wasn’t even anywhere close to that man’s attitude and I am banned? I’m considering this Racist in ways because right from the start this Steve guy never liked my questions. My Avatar is the only Asian guy on that forum that’s dropped from support for a legit question. You got no honor.

p.s. I still need help getting rid of your default Light Box on this theme that is over-riding my Gallery Plugin’s Light Boxes.

This theme is complex and you know it. Banning me fore your support mate’s stupidity was very dishonorable and unfair. I am on my own from here on with one of the most complex Themes of all time. I mean if he didn’t wanna help an Asian user just ignore me and we never would’ve had this issue. Man this is disappointing. Seriously.

@cybohboob Pulling the ‘race card’ to get customization for your plugin? Totally unwarranted. Parallelus support is the best! (However, worth a good chuckle when I post this elsewhere. Thanks.)

Just wanted to say that while getting to know how Razor works was a learning curve, now that I know it, I feel completely terrified to use any other theme! Razor can literally mould to anything, it is so flexible and I feel confident in meeting whatever my clients ask for whereas other themes are limited severely in comparison. I will say it would probably baffle a first-timer, it is not as simple as some themes out there, but it is a thousand times more powerful as a result. I think this theme lost it’s 5-star rating on people who lacked experience in Wordpress and as such struggled to work it out. At first I was confused to, but now that I know it, it feels simple and limitless. This theme is my new ‘safe zone’ and I’ll definitely be back for more licenses for my new clients.

Parallelus

Thank you, that is excellent to hear.

I’m working right now to make the process even more intuitive. This should hopefully ease that learning curve for new customers as we continue to improve our themes.

If a user writes a comment to a post on the main site, does that comment get a link on the users buddypress-profile?

I know that if a user writes a comment on the forum on in a group, THAT get’s linked on the profile.

Parallelus

I can’t remember if this is the default behavior, but I remember it being something that can be easily enabled/disabled with a WP filter. In the past customers have posted to our Help Center with simple tweaks related to this.

Hello Parallelus,

I am interested in your Razor-theme, but I have some pre-sales questions. I have a very specific site I need to get up and running, and I want to know if I can use Razor for this, without any heavy customizations.

I’m running a site with webcomics – comicjams. A comicjam is a comic where each page is drawn by a different artist. First page is drawn by ONE person, second page is drawn by ANOTHER artist, third page is drawn by a THIRD artist aso …

We have about 30 comics, where each page is created by a different artist – and we have more than a thousand pages in all. So it’s a huge multi-author site (200+ users), that displays full-size images. Each comic page needs to have it’s own wp-post, so people can comment the individual comic pages. I need a way to navigate between the pages of a single comic, with an easy next/previous button.

If you are not familiar with how webcomics operate, check this page out: http://activatecomix.com/156-1-3.comic Also, a while ago I made a couple of mock-ups in Photoshop, to give people an idea of what I was going for. Nevermind about the design, I’m only showing you these to give you an idea about functionality: http://kimlarsen.net/gcj2012/mainpage.html ? The most important thing here, is that I need a way to display all the comicjams on the main page of the site … can I do that somehow with Razor? http://kimlarsen.net/gcj2012/single.html ? This is what I mean by a comic page/wp-post…

Now, each artist has to be able to log into the site. On his profile page the viewer can always check out a gallery of all the comic pages (or WP-posts) he has made in the different comicjams. Is that something that can be done with Buddypress?

So, do you honestly think I can make this site with Razor? I can’t code/customize myself, but I know how to find plugins aso … It needs to be pretty straight forward.

Parallelus

The linking of posts with the WP “nextpage” comment is simple to add to any post. The theme supports this feature and will automatically add the next/previous links. I’m not totally sure this applies to pages, but it’s likely easy to implement. I’m thinking you would want to use posts for this instead of pages.

Being able to give users access to create and edit posts or content is not something BuddyPress or the theme allows. It is a native WordPress permissions option. You will probably want to look into plugins that make this easier to manage as there are a lot of them and they probably will make the task easier.

With anything this specific there is always a good chance you will need to do some code customization. The simplest way to explain that is the theme wasn’t designed to do this exact task and there will probably be things you can’t accomplish without custom work. It might be worth looking into finding a good developer that you can hire on an hourly basis to implement any minor tweaks you would need.

I think with any theme you will probably need some custom work to get your exact setup. Razor is more complex than most themes and for that reason it could make the task of customizing the code more difficult for someone not already experienced with WordPress code. I’m trying to be completely honest here so you can get the product that will work best for you.

udgang99

Thank you for your honesty … I have been going over your video tutorials today to get a better idea of what Razor can do … and I’m pretty sure I’m going to go with Razor. And as you say, find a good developer who can tweek it to my needs. Thanks. :-)

Parallelus

Ok, that’s great to hear.

We don’t do custom work but there are a few people we recommend regularly with experience editing our themes. If you would like, shoot us an email with some basic information and I’ll forward it along to them.

A little bit related to my first question: If a buddypress-user is also an author on the site, and has written a blog-post, does that post show up in his profile on the buddypress-page?

Parallelus

BuddyPress has an option to show blog posts/updates in the activity streams. If users activity is shown on their profile (by default it is the profile home screen) it will show this in that area also. It won’t show just a list of blog posts in their profile unless you create something custom or a plugin exists for that.

I saw and email from you with similar questions. Would you still like me to reply to that email or does this give you the information you need? I’m just trying to avoid doing the same work twice, answering the same questions again since they were submitted to multiple locations.

udgang99

Thank you for all the answers. The replies here are fine, just disregard my email! :-)

I noticed that if you try to make a new topic in the BP forum and you forget to assign a “post in group forum”, you get an error message AND your entire message is deleted.

Is this a BP problem, or a Razor problem?

I can only imagin that some people will get frustrated to have their message deleted, because they forget such a tiny thing.

Parallelus

That is core BuddyPress functionality. You can go to their support site and complain, but I don’t think they’ll care. They are moving the forum functionality over to native bbPress so it can handle all the heavy lifting.

However, typically a user will not be posting from the “Forums” area that you were using and will be in the group specific forum. When inside a group forum it doesn’t have this field as the information is already known so this can’t happen.

No filtered gallery?

Considering purchase due to responsive design which Salutation does not have. However, for the logo, I don’t particularly like the logo to be part of the slideshow or header banner which would require changes to the logo used to make it transparent and useable with the slider background or header. Does the theme come with an option to put a logo on top of the Navigation Menu? The logo must remain separate from the slide or header banner. Look forward to hearing from you.

Parallelus

Some of the skins make use of it in different ways. You could use one of them or make your own custom skin to place the logo in a different location.

For example, skin 10: http://para.llel.us/themes/razor-wp/?style=10

Default-user

I really want to purchase this but let me be more specific. I like this skin, but the LOGO has a transparent background so that it works with the Slideshow. I want this skin, but the LOGO to be moved to the top of the NAVIGATION MENU. Is this easily achievable or would I need to rewrite alot of code? Everything else about the Theme I think would work, but this one thing with the LOGO placement is a concern. I need the logo on the top of the Navigation menu with a white background. Please let me know asap so that I can make a decision about purchase. Thanks for the help!

Parallelus

You can move anything you want to anywhere you want, but it’s going to require some editing and advanced CSS knowledge. It won’t take a lot of changes but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. You still need a certain skill level.

Looks like a great theme. I have some questions though: - Does the Header/Home slider support Video? - Does the Header/Home slider support HTML/JS Layers (buttons, forms, etc.)? - Can video on page be embedded an non-popup (just play, pauze, no popup)?

Parallelus

The slide show can have any content you want. It accepts HTML, shortcodes, videos, images, etc.

Any WordPress site can have embedded video in the page. It’s a default WordPress feature when a video URL is pasted into the editor or if you use the default embed shortcode in the WP core.

Default-user

brilliant. I’m sold :-)

Another question. It might be a buddypress or plugin issue/question. But would the theme enable somehow for a new user to register using their Facebook/Twitter/Google+ profiles? So an easy social-media 1-click signup? Or would you know if this has been done with the theme with help of what plugin or function?

Parallelus

It’s going to require a plugin. Try searching the BP plugin repository to see if one exists: http://buddypress.org/extend/plugins/

Also I don’t read anything about the SEO friendliness of the theme. What SEO options are available and how SEO friendly are the slider and all shortcodes? Anything that can be said on that? Thanks!

Parallelus

There aren’t any “SEO Options” although the theme’s code is optimized for being indexed properly by search engines. Optimizing your code should be expected so we don’t list it as a “feature” like other authors.

Shortcodes made friendly for search engines? Shortcodes only call functions to produce content content like anything else. I can’t even think of a situation where the shortcode output would be a problem for search engines unless it called some AJAX feature that didn’t have a fallback for disabled JavaScript. Yes, our shortcodes are “SEO friendly” if you want to call them that.

Same for the slide show. It’s just content and can be indexed the same as any other content.

Don’t get caught up on SEO like it’s a religion. There’s more myth in that industry than anything else. Look for a theme with clean and well formed code that has the proper tags and syntax. That’s all it takes. The real “secret” in SEO is good content. There is simply nothing as powerful as that in getting get your site to have highly ranked search results. No tricks needed, just good content.

Default-user

Thanks for clarifying. The question was referring to clean code and content being easily accessible to search engines. And yes, content = king.

Be careful of the “support team” at Parallelus. They are complete jerks when it comes to helping people with legitimate, respectful support-related questions about their themes. :X I’ve never had such negative, insinuating, degrading responses from a technical support team than I have had with Parallelus @jeffw and @andy :-(

To be as fair as possible—the product is very good, but the support team is overworked. We were able to work out our misunderstandings. Thanks @andy for stepping in.
