Very cool, my Q’s are Can the category headings on homepage be made to like? Can you have custom sidebars for each category? Do yo have different ad sizes? Can author box have social icons that link to there sites? Is there an author page? I assume you can change fonts for all titles?

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) If you you’re asking can you arrange the homepage categories how you like and use your own categories, yes definitely.

2) Yes you can using the “Display Widgets” WordPress plugin.

3) The theme doesn’t use ad widgets, you can insert your ads in the header section panel or in the sidebar via the text widgets.

4) The author box can have social links with some code modifications.

5) Yes, all WordPress themes have author pages.

6) Yes you can change the fonts of titles from the backend options.

Hope that answers your questions. :)

For the featured area, how are those posts selected? Also, I assume they can be linked to posts, because they are currently just # links back to the top of the page.

GhostPool

Hi there,

You can add posts, page or slides (custom post type) all of which have featured images. Yes they can link to any post, page, slide or external link.

Oh how i wish you added infinite scroll to this wonderful theme. Would compete with mashable’s latest. Any future plans to do so?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Depending on theme sales this feature may be included. :)

Two things. Is there any way to make the top ad not show up on the mobile phone version? Most script based ads aren’t responsive (i.e Google AdSense).

Second, is there a way to turn the “go to top” arrow off? It gets in the way of the content on mobile phones.

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Google ads can be made responsive as shown here: http://www.labnol.org/internet/google-adsense-responsive-design/25252

2) Yes, this can be done via a small code change.

bad theme

GhostPool

Ok? Why post that when you haven’t even used the theme? If you don’t like the theme don’t buy it. Simple. Good bye.

  • Has been a member for 1-2 years

Beautiful theme, but there were certain questions that i wanted to ask before i buy the theme. 1. What do u have to say about google page insight score? it shows very bad score when checked of around 43. 2. Why are the top most articles not linking to the posts? Are the links to be manually added. 3. There is an image that show up under the title of each article which i suppose is the featured image, what if we dont want to show the featured image in the article can that be removed? 4. Could the breadcrumbs be shown right below the title of the article in small text? something like Home(link to home) – Category (link to category) – Article title 5. How do u review this theme in terms of SEO?

thanks look forward to hear from you.

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Please post a link to this scoring so I can take a look.

2) This is because it’s just dummy content, they can really link to any page you want.

3) Yes there is an option to remove the featured image on all posts or individual posts.

4) You would need to add your own plugin to add breadcrumbs, but it’s certainly possible.

5) I would say the SEO of the theme is very good – the item page discusses some of the SEO features of the theme.

GhostPool

90% of these issues are things that the end user (yourself) should fix and you can do so very easily. Once you buy any theme you should 1) install a minify plugin to minify the CSS, JS and HTML 2) optimize/compress your images and this will instantly take your page score up to about 60%-70%.

Other issues such as minimising redirects, is incorrect. These links are not redirects, WordPress just makes them look like they are.

Other issues such as inline CSS are being generated by plugins – not the theme itself so there’s little I can do about those.

Also why do we see small mobile icons on top when the theme is opened on mobile?

GhostPool

Hi there,

I’m not really sure what you mean by mobile icons? Are you referring to the social icons below the navigation menu? If so these are shifted from the right hand side on smaller screens.

Default-user

The social icons show correctly on Android phone but isnt showing correctly on my Windows Phone (7.8) also the rss icon and search icon isnt showing correctly.

GhostPool

It’s difficult for me to look into this problem since I do not have a Windows phone. If you want to email me at ghostpool[at]gmail.com with a screenshot of the issue I’ll be happy to work this out with you in order to fix any problems.

Just FYI, the order slides functionality does not work. The little progress spinner just sits there and spins forever. Thought it was a plugin problem, but I disabled everything, and it still never updated the order.

Hi there,

I will look into this right away.

Nice theme. :)

I already added 1:1 row but there’s still space for sidebar beside the isotope slider. How can I fix it?

Thanks, Kristian

Is the highlighted posts grid at the top of the demo page a product of the theme shortcodes or the Visual Composer plugin?

GhostPool

Hi there,

This is a product of the theme shortcodes, but is fully integrated into the Visual Composer so it can be easily added and moved around the page.

Anpanman

Is it possible to uninstall Visual Composer and just use the theme with it’s native shortcodes?

GhostPool

Yes you can uninstall the Visual Composer and use the shortcodes natively.

Anpanman
Anpanman Purchased

I’m not seeing any way to do that. Visual Composer does not show up in the plugins panel and deleting the directory from the theme results in an error.

Frankly, Visual Composer is a step backwards in usability from your previous themes. It is heavy and clunky. Building the homepage with shortcodes was much easier.

GhostPool

The homepage is still built with shortcodes, Visual Composer just provides an interface for the shortcodes making things, in my opinion, so much easier to use.

You can use the shortcodes even with Visual Composer installed, just switch back to the Classic view. However to remove VC you need to make a few code changes, if you need help with this please post your question at http://ghostpool.ticksy.com where all support is handled.

What are the different advertising area options open on this theme.. it looks amazing so well done.. just wonder if a) it would be too difficult for a basic to medium wordpress user to changover their theme from www.balls.ie to this -

thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

Thanks for the comments. :)

You can insert advertisements into the header and the sidebar. You can change the width of sidebar and the header width depends on the size of your logo so you have control over the ad sizes.

It’s hard to say for sure but I don’t see any difficult. Your posts from your old theme will be displayed very easily in the Reader theme.

Default-user

thanks for your quick reply.. i’m diving in

Nice looking theme . I have a question, can you show post in the grid view without the headings for categories. For example on the default layout there are black strips that show the category name and beneath them are the posts added in that category. What I would like to do is show all recent posts without differentiating them in category. Just like TheVerge.com does. Is that possible?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes this is definitely possible, you can choose whether or not to display the category headers.

Hello,

I just purchased this theme, and as soon as I uploaded it, there was an error which prevents me from having access to the admin panel. When I go to the domain name, I can see that the Reader theme is functioning. I’d love some help, so I can get started. I’m really excited about this theme. It is exactly what I’ve been searching for!

Nice theme!!! 1- It’s possible that the sidebar (recent post, most viewed) change for every category. 2- it’s possible to install a live search with drop dawn plugin similar the nytimes.com. Thank you.

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Yes this is possible, you would need to use the Display Widget plugin to add different widgets to each category.

2) Again this is possible. Take a look through the available live search plugins here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=live+search

Hey, Nice work . One question, can I protect specific category post with user password? Thank you Hope to hear soon from you.

GhostPool

Hi there,

Thanks. :) Yes you can password protect posts, this is a standard WordPress feature.

Default-user

I would like to protect post attached to a specific wordpress category with a password for only a group of users, all other posts are public is that posible with you theme or do i need additional plugins.thank you

GhostPool

You can only password protect individual posts, you cannot do this on a category by category basis. You will need to use a plugin to achieve this, something like s2Member may offer this feature: http://www.s2member.com/

Hi,

Just purchased Reader theme, found out a problem with Visual Composer. Apparently Visual Composer refuse to save the changes I made.

Here’s what I have done. 1) Create a blank page, adding stuff with visual composer. 2) Publish the page. 3) After refresh, blank content. 4) Swicthing from Visual Composer to Classing Compose also gives blank content.

Also is there a way to fetch Tags instead Categories? My category is minimal, and I use tags for content sections.

If you want to email me for answer, please use this address ncus[at]me[dot]com
