Purchased and played with this, but haven’t really used it for a site yet. I would love to see it updated to something responsive. Is that in the plans at all? Thanks.

Hi, I am seriously considering purchasing this theme, but my only concern is the same one shared by kaylesimon – the fact that it does not have a responsive layout. However, I viewed it on both my iPad and iPhone and it looks great. Forgive my ignorance, but is the only “non-responsive” issue the fact that the site does not adjust when you shrink the screen size on a monitor? Thanks so much for your help!

Parallelus

Thanks for your comments. Your are correct that the theme is ready for use on mobile devices like iPad, iPhone and Android browsers. It actually works great on these devices.

You’re very close in your assessment of what a responsive design is. It means the design has custom CSS to adjust to the device view port. This means as the width gets narrower it modifies the styles and layouts to show fewer columns, etc.

really close to buying, i was wondering if its easy to change the main slider to a different type of slider? Thanks

Parallelus

To actually “change” the slide show, replacing the existing code and functionality probably is not easy. However, because of how the theme is structured and the way that you have control to generate your layouts and content sources, it is not difficult to insert a custom slide show into a header as the content source which would give the exact same result as replacing the slide show.

I’ve worked with customers that have purchased slide show plugins or added free ones and integrated them this way. If the slide show can use shortcodes to be inserted into the content you should have no trouble adding it to the theme.

I just purchased this theme and really like some of the text box short codes that are used with icons. Can I somehow add my own custom icons and still use this short code? I am working on a site that would benefit from a glossary or images and what they mean. This would work perfectly if the cons can be added.

Parallelus
Sure, you can modify the CSS to add more of these.

While navigating through the website, pages will sometimes randomly refresh and take me back to the home page. Does not seem to happen consistently, but it is frequent. I have installed buddypress and bbpress. Changing to one of the stock buddy press themes, the problem does not occur, so it seems to be Salutation related.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Parallelus

I have no idea how that might happen. There are thousands of Salutation installs and no issues like this have been reported. With it being random it points to a permalink/server/DNS/cache or other issue where there are fewer constants to rely on. When a theme has a bug, typically it can be replicated under duplicate circumstances.

If you would like to report this please visit our Help Center so our support can look into it.

Hi Parallel, If I purchased this theme, am I allowed to create a community deals site and generate sales from the site? What if I wanted to sell the site, what would happen then? Many thanks for your reply. Regards, Daniel

Parallelus

Once you purchase the theme it is yours to do whatever you wish. If you build a successful website and want to sell it to someone else you can. The only limitation is you can’t “resell” the template. By that it means make a copy or variation and put the template itself up for sale.

It is not that much different from buying a book. You can do whatever you want with the book and even sell it to someone else. You can not have copies of the book printed and sell those. You don’t own the rights to reproduce it. But that one copy you own, you can sell it to a friend or neighbor and there is nothing wrong with that.

I bought the theme awhile ago and am trying to modify the header so that it includes a search input in the top right corner.

How do I get the login widget in sidebar on my site:

http://theurbantwist.com/community/register/

to loo like yours, with the “Not a Member” link a description below it?

http://para.llel.us/themes/salutation-wp/activity/

I added the login widget to my sidebar, thinking it would look like yours but mine looks generic.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

I’ve just purchased your nice theme and I’m trying to follow the installation steps of your documentation. Regarding the default theme options, it says:

Click “Appearance > Design Settings” Under “Default Design Settings” click the button “Edit All Default Design Settings” The resulting page will show most options as unset, however the theme will continue to use pre-configured defaults until you save this page for the first time.

But I can’t find the “Edit All Default Design Settings” button you’re talking about. I just have at the bottom of the page the following buttons: “Save Settings” and “Export Design Settings”. No other buttons on the page !

Moreover, my Register and Signin tabs are not opening. Could you please provide some help ?

Regards.

Parallelus

The button “Edit All Default Design Settings” no longer exists in the Salutation admin. The options found in that area now exist directly on the page “Appearance > Design Settings” so the button is unnecessary now. The help document is being updated currently to reflect these changes. It will be corrected in the next few days.

You probably don’t have the menus setup yet if the tabs aren’t opening. If you don’t complete the setup of the menus the site will not function and errors will prevent the tabs (and other JavaScript) from executing. This is why we have the bright red notice in the menu location asking the user to setup the menus.

Hi – wanted to view your theme preview LIVE , but my anti virus program blocked it as in infected site. Perhaps investigate???

Considering re buying the theme for another project – can you modify the theme to have a vertical navigation menu on the left hand side and how costly would this modification be?

Parallelus

That sounds like a problem with the anti-virus. I would suggest contacting the vendor to report the issue.

I suppose you could modify the navigation but I’m not sure how difficult it would be, depending on the location, styling, etc. We don’t do customization so this would be something you would have to complete.

Should I “Disable BP Template Pack CSS ” and should I “Disable BP Template Pack JS / AJAX ” in the BP Compatibility area?

Please let me know, thanks.

Parallelus
Yes, having that plugin active will cause a lot of errors. The reason is the code inserted by that plugin is already included in the theme and it will create a conflict to have it twice.

Hi Great looking theme. What I’d like to know is if there’s a range of options to enhance the member search field ie in terms of refining the search to include various custom profile criteria? and not just the single option in the demo of searching by a word or name etc Thanks in advance Mark

Parallelus

The search features are created by WordPress, or in the community areas by BuddyPress. You would need to check with the plugin developers to see about updating/modifying the search features. This seems like a reasonable feature request so if there isn’t a plugin for it already I’d be willing to bet there are some posts on the BuddyPress forums specific to how others have accomplished this.

Try browsing/searching this site for details: http://buddypress.org/

An incredible theme, thank you! If I could bring something to your attention. There seems to be VERY little quality WP themes that have built-in Buddypress or bbpress support. Having a forum seamlessly integrate with the main site design is not easy.. and a WP theme that works well with these Psuedo forum plugins (Buddypress, BBpress) is a good solution.. If anything, I’d ask that you’d please make some more of your future themes to have this feature built-in as it’s the main reason I bought this theme. Again, thank you!

Thinking about purchasing your theme and would like to integrate event calendar for members (buddypress) and non-members. Is there something built in or is their recommended plugins that is suitable with this template and buddypress/wordpress? Thanks in advance

Parallelus

There are a number event calendar plugins for WordPress and BuddyPress. I know in the past some customers had trouble implementing them with Salutation but we have made many updates to the theme and it now works very well with these plugins. There are also a lot of posts on our Help Center from customers using these plugins with tips for customizing them and doing theme specific modifications. It’s a great resource if you decide to use Salutation for your project.
