Dear Ghostpool i had bought reviewit about 4 yers ago for my site entertainmentbureau.in . My login credentials dont work now and i need to update my theme. please help as i have paid for the theme but seem lost now

Hi there,

I need you to login from the original account or provide me with your original purchase code otherwise I have no way to confirm you purchase the theme. You should contact Envato support about getting access to your previous account: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=37840

Hi guys, this theme is just what I was looking for! I read, however, ‘that the plugin gd star rating was taken off, in fact there is not it on the site of wordpress plugin it on the manufacturer’s website. And ‘however included in the theme? O has been replaced with another plugin?

Thank you and see you soon!

Ok , I think of Buy Reviewit , Hoping That Maybe you will pass the voting system used in internal Theme Gauge :-)

Last Question :-) Users who are registered can post new articles to review ??

Thanks again!!

The theme does not come with this feature (the Gauge theme does), in order to do this you will need to use plugins such as Gravity Forms and Capability Manager.

hi, I bought the theme! has great potential but I do not exploited at 100%.

1) There is no management of the coloration of the theme.

2) There is no way to show a description + pictures of tags created in reviews? ES: When I Manufacturer: Nike, I click, as well as show the other reviews with Nike (and the two systems sort) I would like to at least see the above description I entered into the management of the tag.

3) If I recorded in Reviews Category 3 different article that I want to review, when I go to set up GD Star a multiple set for each category, this is related to the category of the article and not to wordpress Reviews Category …

Can you help me please? Thank you, I hope for a good response:-)

Hi, I am building a social network site which allows users to add product articles, review products, review product articles etc. I have installed Wordpress and activated Buddypress. Is this kind of reviewing inbuilt? I want to give points to users for most of their actions like sign-up, adding product article, reviewing products, reviewing product articles, adding images, liking or disliking posts etc. Is ReviewIt and myCred/Cubepoint integration possible without much hassle? Also, I want the users to be able to share their articles, images, reviews etc. with/ through FB, twitter, instagram, pinterest etc., how can this be achieved through ReviewIt or some special plugin? Could you please point me to a food/restaurant/cuisine website created using ReviewIt? Is an integration with rtMedia possible, out of the box? I want grid layout of images/videos on homepage/landing page, besides the image editing functionality. Thanks in advance

Hi there,

This is a review theme that allows admins to set site rating and user’s to leave their own ratings. There is no point system and unfortunately I don’t know how much of as hassle it will be to integrate the theme with Cubepoint without previously integrating myself.

The theme has not been tested with rtMedia, but I don’t see why it would not work.

Users can share articles and reviews using any sharing plugin out there.

You can see three examples of ReviewIt being used here, but I do not have permission to post any restaurant examples.

The theme demo shows a grid layout for reviews, you add an images in a grid using the default WordPress [gallery] shortcode but there’s no specific theme function to display just images.

I have 2 questions:

1. What do you use for review categorisation (producer, director, etc.)? WP Tags? Categories? This is important to know as I’m planning to do further development to link one of the categories (crew) to another plugin.

2. Is there any plan to update the theme to be responsive any soon? Just to consider if I’d add such customisation by myself or if I should wait.

Hi there,

1) These are custom taxonomies (categories).

2) There are no plans to make the theme responsive at this time.

Hi, when i add a review by comment, only the first is working and for the others only the comment is shown . I have disable the option avoid multiple vote by ip and by cookie. So where is the problem ?

Very nice theme, looking forward buying it, I have a question though.

Is it possible to embed with parameters in the slider? Like to add &rel=0 and so on, to customize the youtube content a bit, if it’s a video in the slider? So for example making it ?theme=light&rel=0 ?

As far as I know Nivoslider might have issues with it, so I ask. :)

nvm i found a plugin that will do it


Lovely theme, but as I’ve seen others allude to – it is not responsive. Recently, Google has changed it’s indexing parameters to begin ‘phasing out’ non-responsive webpages. This, paired with the indication that you have new themes (in the works) that will be responsive, is there any chance you will make this theme responsive? Is it possible to get cues as to what needs to be changed in the CSS to make it somewhat responsive myself?

Any info at all would be great, thanks.

Hi there,

It’s unlikely the theme will be made responsive and in order to make it so, it would require hiring a developer.

I suggest taking a look at my newer review themes Gauge and The Review (these are the theme I mentioned in previous comment). You can view my whole portfolio here: http://themeforest.net/user/GhostPool/portfolio?ref=GhostPool

Hi guys, I’m currently using version 6.13.2 because I edited many files php and css, how can I do to enter only this Fix: Updated TGM-Plugin-Activation plugin to fix XSS vulnerability ?? thanks

ok but if I try to open a ticket to the theme reviewit not I see a field to enter the purchase code and therefore does not make me complete the insertion of the ticket, check as soon as you can :-)

I solved and open the ticket, it was probably a problem of the browser cache.

I can’t believe with 2,330 sales you would not make this theme mobile-friendly. The new Google update Mobilegeddon is going to kill this theme!

Hi there,

Making the theme responsive would take a lot of time, and because the theme is nearly 5 years old and sales have slowed down over the years I can’t justify the time it will take to do that at the moment. You can hire my developer Bryce at http://www.ourwebmedia.com/ghostpool.php?aff=002 to make the theme responsive for you – they’ve made ReviewIt responsive/mobile friendly for other cusotmers. Alternatively you could go a plugin such as WPTouch to provide a mobile layout.

Well then you should not charge $58 for an outdated theme that you do not intent to maintain. You have a $135,000 in sales for this theme alone so I am not sure how you can rationalize saying ” I can’t justify the time it will take to do that”!

1) I do not set the price for the theme, Envato does.

2) I still maintain the theme. New features are added occasionally and bug fixes are always released.

3) You bought the theme over 4 years ago as a non-responsive theme for around $58 (actually it was probably less). You’ve definitely got a lot of free updates and features over the years for your money. $135,000 is before Envato take their 30% and this is also over 5 years, most of which was generated in the first few years.


I would like to buy this Theme. But I have some doubts.

Its possible put a clean theme or only this dark theme?

Its possible you show me some pages what use this theme. I would like to know how much I can personalize it.

Hi there,

The theme comes in a light and dark skin. You can view the light skin here: http://demo.ghostpool.com/reviewit/?skin=light

The item page provides three customer examples.

hi, how do i export my music articles to normal post please if i no longer want to use theme and just plain theme.

Do you have any plans to add buttons that connect to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the like?

Hi there,

No plans for this currently as there are plenty of plugins that already do this better than any theme can.

Is there a way to post a picture in the background behind the page to surround the information? If that make sense.

Hi there,

You’ll just need to create a background image with a gap the width of the information in the middle.

Was http://www.christianfilmdatabase.com/ heavily modified or is that a site that can be designed by using the theme alone?

Hi there,

This buyer hired my developer to make a number of modifications to their site, so this cannot be achieved by the theme alone.

ok, thanks for the info. I think this theme is great and I look forward to using it for my site.

Great news. :)

Can there be more than one admin account? How many admins can I setup?

Hi there,

As far as I know WordPress allows you to create an unlimited number of admin access. The theme has nothing to do with this. :)

Very nice because I’ll likely be adding people to help me maintain the data. That’s great to hear.

ok, I purchased the theme and so far everything is going well. I’m taking my time and learning how to post and manipulate it. I can’t seem to figure out how to update the main section at the top where the images are displayed. Above the posts. Is that what you mean by slides? I tried adding a slide but it doesn’t show in that section. In the widget section I don’t see a place holder that represents was the main display panel would be. Thanks.

ok, I figured it out. I guess I didn’t try hard enough. Thanks. My next step will be trying to enable the stars feature.
