The 1.1 update is officially up in the queue right now, and there’s a 1.1.1 update not far behind it – I’m back in action and the updates should be coming fast and furious on this theme now.

Cheers! Brandon

PAGINATION LINK AND MODULE STYLE "CLEAN"

If you set Module Styling to Clean (optionTree/The Grid Option/”Set the Module styling for Each Grid Box) and also “Make the entry module a Link” to “Yes” The Link for Pagination is hard to hit, as it overlaps with your Modules and mostly you will hit the Module/Entry and not the Link.

Go to Option Tree => The Styling Options and add this to the “Insert your own custom CSS rules”

Heck, I can’t post the number-character here! So (Number) mens the number-character…

(Number)pagination { z-index: 4; }

Thanks, mickna

BROKEN SEARCH :

open searchform.php delete all and copy paste:

<div style="margin-top: 3px;">
<label class="screen-reader-text" for="s">Search:</label>
    <input name="s" id="s" value="" type="text" />
    <input id="searchsubmit" value="Search" type="submit" /> 
</div>
open serach.php find:

<!-- THE POST LOOP -->
            &lt;?php $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
            $args=array(
               'cat'?&gt;''.get_cat_id(get_custom_field('category_filter')),
               'paged'=>$paged,
               );
            query_posts($args);
            while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?&gt;
delete this lines and insert instead:

<!-- THE POST LOOP -->
      <?php $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
      query_posts($query_string. '&paged=' . $paged);

</cod?>
Save and be happy.

One Note: Dear Brandon, your searchform.php does not have any action tag and also in search.php there is no hint to any query string! This means: search has not worked at any time and nobody did checked this function before delivering the template. This is really a pin in the neck.

I am not a programmer, I am a designer! I needed two days to find the solutions above (and BTW : This are my first steps with wordpress). It is really a shame.

If the authors of this theme ever come back to read comments/questions may I strongly recommend that they visit their own support site and address the Reflex questions. There are some serious broken elements (search, social, custom field background image) that merit an updated version be posted to Themeforest.

Love the theme and your layout work but this theme went public before it was properly tested.

BROKEN SOCIAL ICONS BESIDE SEARCH ON TOP OF PAGE :

Even if I do not use this:

- go to your wp-admin page - under Appearance->Editor - open topbar-navigation.php

find:

&lt;?php if (get_option_tree('social_facebook')) : ?&gt;
<a href="&lt;?php echo get_option_tree('theme_facebook'); ?&gt;" title="Facebook" id="facebook" target="_blank"><img src="&lt;?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?&gt;/assets/img/social/facebook_16.png" alt="facebook" /></a>
&lt;?php endif; ?&gt; 
change theme_facebook in the second line to “social_facebook”:

<?php if (get_option_tree('social_facebook')) : ?>
<a href="<?php echo get_option_tree('social_facebook'); ?>" title="Facebook" id="facebook" target="_blank"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/assets/img/social/facebook_16.png" alt="facebook" /></a>
<?php endif; ?> 

Do the same with all the other social icons.

If you are like to be w3c conform: traget”_blank” is NOT XHTML Strict! So if you like, delte this. However, this will open all social links in the same window. But then it is XHTML Strict.

thx, mickna

Hi Brandon,

You sold us a lemon. I can’t believe this was even made available for purchase.

Over the past month+ I have commented here, commented on your personal support forum, contacted you directly via Themeforest, and tweeted you asking when you thought the fixed theme would be available.

All of my requests for information (which were quite polite) have gone completely ignored. Yet, you are on Themeforest RIGHT NOW actively commenting on your newest themes.

Seriously man, WTF is up with that? This theme is BROKEN ..

It really is a shame because it is quite nice looking.

I’ve reported the issue to Themeforest, yet the broken theme still remains for anyone to who doesn’t read these last several pages of comments to waste their money on.

If you are reading this and haven’t purchased yet.. DON ’T.

If you have purchased this theme, I highly recommend you report your issues to Themeforest. If enough people do it maybe they’ll take it down.

Heya guys! I hear ya loud and clear ;) I know I’ve mentioned the update a few times, but I have it open right now and should be submitting it within 24 hours. The delays have had good reason as I’ve been updating the entire backend of this to be more compliant with new standards… but I also fully understand your frustration with how long it’s taken!

PS – If anyone wants instant access to the update before the reviewers can approve it tomorrow, just drop me an email from my profile page. Again, my sincere apologies for the delays on this. No excuses, but I’ll sort this out ASAP now that I have some of the major update issues cleared up on my side.

@Aprilrobin:

I’ll report it also today. I hoped with my fixes Brandon will take a closer look at us. I also wrote him a mail and a private message at the board from designnotwar. But also no response.

@ALL: If you have bought this theme, PLEASE send a note to themeforest. THIS IS NOT WHAT WE HAVE PAID FOR AND I WOULD SAY REFLEX IS JUST BETA WITH NO SUPPORT AT ALL !

@ALL OTHERS : THINK TWICE IF YOU WANT TO BUY THIS THEME IN THIS VERSION .

Hi Brandon!

“The delays have had good reason” – Maybe.

But there is no good reason at all to keep us not informed (except a suddenly death)! Why did you not make a short statement during the weeks? I’ll guess you are here now, cos some of us complained to themeforest. I feel if we did not complain, you did not answer now.

If your “reviewers” work like last release I only can strongly recommend to find some reviewers which are doing their job well.

Sorry Brandon, but honestly: I am so much frustrated about your support! To point it out: I purchase a theme to save time and this means to save money. Now I have spend a lot of hours (as I am no programmer) to fix the biggest bugs for me and this means I simply lost money.

Hi Mickna,

I honestly understand your frustration and I feel terrible for the lack of communication on my side. I’ll have a full response later on (I’m still working hard on the update), but I’ll do my absolute best to make this right (or at least as right as a 2 month late update can be). You’ll get nothing but agreement and apologies on my side, but I’m hoping to patch this up over the next day or two. If you’d like to send me an email via my profile page, I’ll be glad to offer you some extended compensation ;)

Hi Brandon – I’m wanting to purchase your Reflex theme but was wondering when 1.1 would be available so to avoid the apparent bugs in the previous version. Seems like it was supposed to be up already but the profile still says 1.05, so just wanted to check.

Also, a couple questions:

1: Can the CATAGORIES section on the top (typography, design, etc. – below the logo and menu) be permanently open/available for easy access?

2: Can the section border lines (on the radius edged boxes) be removed, so that theres no borders?

3. At the end of each blog post, are we able to have links to related blog entries (maybe thumbnails?) so viewers don’t have to keep going back to the homepage.

Thanks man – great looking theme!!

Hi Spug!

1. Sorta – the menu area is pretty customizable… so you would probably want to just set a new link for each category that you want available at all times :)

2. Sure – that’s basic CSS stuff that you can adjust using the Theme Options.

3. Sure – there are a lot of free plugins out there that will do this for you :)

Cheers! Brandon

No discount for flex users that want to upgrade? ;]

Was there ever a fix for the font changing on load or click of “home” – I see it still happens in the preview. Browser compatibility issue or coding? I’m on firefox.

I see the text size issue only happens until the cache kicks in – is the traditional blog layout customizable, far as image size, text placement, date format goes? Thanks.

I am trying to install your theme, twice using ftp and twice using WP import, get a fatal error referencing the option tree every time. Your FAQ provides instructions to upload the option tree free version but I dont see a “Theme Files-No Option Tree” folder anywhere. There is only 1 folder under theme files – “reflex_1.1” It appears option tree free folder is not provided in version 1.1, How do I go about obtaining this version so I can upload the theme correctly?

Thanks.

Ok, not sure if you read my question completely, I already tried the manual ftp method suggested in the link you sent me to. The error is with the theme itself, referencing an Option Tree error, which in your FAQ says to use the “No Option Tree” file if you get this error. However the theme download does not contain the file you reference. I would like to know how I can obtain the correct files to use this theme.?

Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_option_tree() in /home/content/f/i/v/fiveforty/html/site/wp-content/themes/reflex_1.1/header.php on line 43

Thanks for the update. I have uploaded, installed and activated Reflex 1.1.

Inserting multiple Videos into a single gallery no longer works in 1.1 I have 8 different videos in a post using lightbox_gallery_link in custom fields, but the 9th video link which has lightbox_link in the custom field, simply gets erased when I click update (save changes). As a result featured image does not display for the grid module. Please check www.erantahor.com

Displaying multiple video entries in a single gallery used to work in the last Reflex version 1.05

Option Tree no longer available in the dashboard, so cannot import theme_options.XML

changelog.txt doesn’t say much about what changed in the new update and help documentation is same as previous versions, none of the links in the PDF works.

Please advise.

Hey man,

So far so good. Just thought I’d let you know I am so far a very happy customer. I’ve only customized the colors and a few aspects of the grid and the footer. I’m working on the frontpage right now. On a clean WP install with almost no plugins, you theme worked perfectly out of the box.

Good work, Cristi

Hey guys.

I am also having some problems with the lightbox_link in 1.1. I can’t get a single post to directly open up to a lighbox display/gallery with either images or video. As Erant said above, i have no problem putting lightbox_galley_links in the custom field, but the last lightbox_link disapears when it is updated. Also there seems to be an issue when i try and add these links, it basically nulls the imbedded post image.

Shuffle option still gets pushed to a new line below the rest of the main menu. I am surprised this wasn’t fixed considering the complaints.
