Hey, Just wondering – before I buy the theme… is there a contact form page template? Everything else looks awesome!

Heya Drew! Yep – we use the Contact Form 7 plugin (free), which allows you to build your own custom contact forms and insert them wherever you want on your pages, posts, or sidebars :)

The site look fine and works like your demo but the back end is off and i see code errors under theme options and option tree.

Thanks for your time

Heya Foundation!

We just updated the theme yesterday, but ThemeForest seems to be lagging on approving the new files because it’s the weekend. File a ticket for me at http://makedesign.ticksy.com and I can send you the newest copy.

HI. I’m very interested in this theme, very nicely done. My problem is that I need to use the Tumblog plugin. Can this be accomplished? Thank you! Brent

Heya Brent!

I actually don’t know off-hand – I haven’t heard of anyone using it yet though ;) QuickPress works… but I’m not sure about Tumblog.

Why aren’t available updates showing from within WP?

MDNW

Heya Special!

Simply because there isn’t a reliable way to do it yet that I’ve seen – we’re not part of the WP themes directory, so we naturally can’t use their system ;) Envato is working on their own auto-update and notification system right now though!

Hey man, I really like the theme and you and your company do a great job supporting it.

I would like to know if there is any way to erase the social links (facebook, twitter) that pop up in the lightbox? The function is fantastic, I want a little cleaner look though.

How do I update the theme?

Sorry for the noob questions and thanks in advance

Hi Grant!

Add this snippet to your custom CSS panel:

.pp_social{display: none;}

Updating the theme is pretty easy – just grab the newest version at any point from ThemeForest and upload it to your site (you may need to delete the old theme folder – keep a backup!)

Can you rephrase your question? I can’t seem to follow exactly what you’re asking.

Howdy,

may I ask… Is there a way on this theme to add a Etsy social Icon.

my thought was if I change one of your existing icons (say pinterest) to a same sized Etsy icon, and modify the link (in theme options) to point to the etsy page. that it would work.

Is this assumption the way to do it? (I did what I mentioned above, edited the icon an upoaded it, but haven’t seen the icon change for me)

THanks Boss…

Heya Pulse!

We’re actually adding a new way to “add your own custom icon” in the next big update – you can also add it manually:

Adding a new social media icon: There’s actually already icons for a lot of the other social services inside the /assets/images/theme/social-icons folder – the easiest way to add a new icon is to manually code it into the element-navigation.php and footer.php files (or element-tophat.php if you’re using the Reaction theme) – find the list of the other icons, then add a new list item for your new one, like this:

<li><a target="_blank" href="skype.com/url"><img src="<?php echo WP_THEME_URL; ?>/assets/images/theme/social-icons/skype_32.png" alt="skype" title="Skype" /></a></li>

That’s it! You can add a new list item for each new icon that you want – just keep in mind that if you add too many, the layout might break causing the icons to overlap on each other.

Heya LA!

Grab any of the free Google Analytics plugins from the Plugins > Add New directory – they’re all great and bring something different to the table based on how much integration you want :)

I’d like to be able to assign custom global, local or personal avatars for blog authors and users. How best should I implement this? Any suggestions? (I’m a bit of a noob…)

Heya Bat!

The gravatars are all setup univesally through http://gravatar.com :) Having unique ones is possible on there – but if you need anything more than what they offer (one avatar per email address), you’ll need some custom coding.

Can you have mini sites on the home page and throughout similar to womenshealthmag.com?

Heya Kelli!

I’m actually not really sure what you’re asking specifically here… the link that you sent doesn’t really seem to have “mini sites” on the homepage… so I might be confusing what you’re asking for. Please clarify for me :)

Hi, nice modern beautiful theme! Before I purchase it some (geek) questions, sorry for that…

Am I right thinking that it is possible to remove the stripe-blog next to the title in blog/pages and the date/comments/category-line in all posts?

I’d like to have have a huge logo – what would be the max width?

Is it possible to have the ‘hybrid blog homepage’ with sidebar?

You wrote that “We’ve got SEO and other fancy search engine optimization tricks baked into the theme as well” – which is great. But – just in case – would it be possible to change things like H1 on title without span etc etc? Or is there a plugin which communicates especially well with your theme?

THANKS for your time in advance!

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Pit2!

1. Yep, that’s a pretty easy change using a single line of CSS that I can give ya ;)

2. The max width for the logo is the width for that entire header space, which is 960px ;)

3. Nope – the hybrid templates don’t have sidebars right now… I can look into adding a new page template that might do this in the future though.

Absolutely – I personally recommend the All in One SEO or Yoast plugins, but you can always tinker with the template files yourself as well if you wished :)

This looks like an excellent theme and I’m considering buying it for use on a client’s website. I have some questions though before presenting it to my client as an option. If you could answer them it would really help me out.

My client has specified that she does not plan on using featured images on every post. She says maybe half the time she would have images for posts. What does the ‘traditional’ blog style look like without images? Would there be a blank space where the image would go, or does the teaser/excerpt text stretch and fill in that space?

How are logo image and favicon added? Please tell me there’s an image uploader in the theme options and these aren’t added by FTP .

If I wanted to change the link color from the pink on the demo to a different color how is that done? Is there a spot in the theme option for custom CSS or do you have a color picker option to easily change colors?

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Angela!

1. The traditional homepage looks pretty much the same without images, the thumbnail space just goes away and the text fills the full width of that column. There’s no “blank space” or anything like that.

2. You upload the logo/favicon on your own from the theme options panel. Yes, there’s an automatic uploader – no FTP ;)

3. That’s a theme option – you pick the link colors using a built in colorpicker ;)

Hey, great theme – but after importing the .xml there seems to be an error per one of the pages. This was working a couple of days ago but not sure why not now? Here is the link and the error is below:

Ok. Another major issue is the scrabble of characters via the drop down menu in WP dashboard and backend. Something weird is happening. Please see the link image below. thanks http://andrewayad.com/image1.png

Heya AA!

That actually seems like a WP core issue… the theme doesn’t really do anything in that area besides the the menus a name…

On your live preview, the toolbar has subtext. Is it possible to have subtext on the actual site? I have been trying but can’t seem to figure it out, or perhaps you have some css that would let the title attribute do the trick.

Heya Morgan!

Do you mean the menu at the top? If so, just open the Appearances > Menus panel, open the “Screen Options” tab at the top right of that screen, and click “Descriptions” to give each menu item the description field. :)

Second question. Is it possible for videos to be visible in the post preview? Only the text is displaying.

MDNW
MDNW Author

Heya Morgan!

Grab the Advanced Excerpt plugin and check out video on it here: http://youtube.com/makedesignnotwar :) You basically want to allow the “iframe” element to be visible on the post preview, then put your video at the top of your posts.

Hi Epicera,

I am having a heck of a time getting a simple column split using shortcodes. I tried using your provided short code but it didn’t work at all for me. I simply want a photo and on the other side a paragraph of text, nothing crazy. I usually use tables but my client would be better off in shortcodes. Here are the two examples: I used this: [onethird_columns] Text /onethird_columns Text [/twothirds_columns] on this page.

This would be ideal to use as it is your code. http://wordpress.miniat.com/chef-bios/ I tried experimenting with the photo thinking it was too big but no matter how small, it doesn’t go into two columns. I also noted on this page that the examples under your page show code and don’t work right. Perhaps this is the problem? http://themes.mdnw.net/?theme=Reason So I gave up and installed Ultimate Plugins which did not do any better. First, if I put it in “compatibility mode” it doesn’t work at all. Second, if you go to this page, you see I can’t get a simple split so the image is on one part and the other is the text. Third: I tried using the Ultimate Shortcode and it isn’t very straight forward and very confusing on what the difference on the numbers are for columns. Finally: They don’t have a web site up and I can’t find anywhere where they explain this mumbo jumbo in normal person terms. http://wordpress.miniat.com/awards-press/

Between the two, I am closest with the Ultimate plugin but there is too much space between the image and the text. I have the pages set to FULL WIDTH .

I appreciate your help in this matter.

Purchased the theme a few days ago – THANKS for your answer!!! It works fantastic.

I already found the line of CSS to remove the date/comments-line in all posts. How can I remove the stripe-blog next to the title…? :bashful:

You wrote that you could look into adding a new page template that might do that the ‘hybrid blog homepage’ can have sidebar—> this would be great!! :)

Hi,

I am trying to take the blog out of the Home page and keep the slider center phrase under the slideshow. Is that possible?

Heya Romain!

Sure – just set your Settings > Reading to the page that you want to use – then on that page, under the Skeleton Page Options, use the Page Caption option, hide the title, and enable the frontpage slider :)

Hi, the text inside my search bar has gone missing. I am not sure if it was there originally or not, but do you have any suggestions on checking to make sure the code is correct? I have only done tiny changes to the css for font colors but only in the h1, h2 tags. I didn’t change anything to white so i don’t think it is invisible due to color. Thanks!

Heya Gin!

1. Got a link? 2. Are you using the Skeleton Search of default WP search widget? Try out both :)

Hi, I sent a formal request in with the ticket system on Friday so you can take a look. This client requires a user/password to see the account. However, YOU FIXED it! Thanks so much, it was the default search widgit causing the problem. So, when you see that post from me just ignore that part of it. Still trying to get the portfolio issue fixed.
