Hello,

I would love to buy this… I have just one question.

Is this theme responsive to all devices. Like IPad, android phone, iPhone. Etc.

The entire site is shrunk to the mobile screen size and the contents in the site are very small. Will the site be responsive to any size mobile screen?

Please help me know this information.

Parallelus

The site works great on mobile devices but it is not a responsive design.

Hello, I had a user test out the registration function and they were informed they would receive an email. They never received an email. I am not sure how users can sign in and edit their profile and begin to post? Thanks

Quick question on your awesome theme…. Is the slider graphics only or can I embed code, such as video to opt in box?

Thanks, CJ

Parallelus

There are 2 slide shows included, Bebel Background Slider and jQuery Cycle. The first, Background Slider only accepts images. The second Cycle can use anything for the content. The slide show on the main home page is the Cycle slide show.

Guys, I definitely love the Salutation theme, though it is not without underwater stones. One of these stones – non responsive design. To overcome this issue, as I understand Parallelus is not going to implement responsive design in here on any further updates, I coded a javascript event that will scale your Parallelus-Salutation theme based website according to browser resolution both on desktop and mobile browsers.

The code can be either inserted into the theme in “Appearance>Design Settings” or through the use of “Insert Headers and Footers” plugin. I used the plugin because I wanted to insert a meta tag piece into the header as well:


<!-- lets tell mobile browsers to do their best to autoresize the page -->
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />

<!-- lets convert our non-responsive theme into responsive one ~~ GOLDHUB.CA ~~ -->
<script type="text/javascript">

var targetWidth = 1280; // This is the total width of the webpage document we want to serve for upsize resolutions
var smallScreentargetWidth = 1020; // This is the total width of the webpage document we want to serve for downsize resolutions

$(document).ready(function(){
    doResize();
    $(window).on('resize', doResize);
});

function doResize() {

window.scrollBarWidth = function() {
  document.body.style.overflow = 'hidden'; 
  var width = document.body.clientWidth;
  document.body.style.overflow = 'scroll'; 
  width -= document.body.clientWidth; 
  if(!width) width = document.body.offsetWidth - document.body.clientWidth;
  document.body.style.overflow = ''; 
  return width; 
}

function getHeight() {
    var myHeight = 0;
    if (typeof(window.innerHeight) == 'number') {
        //Non-IE
        myHeight = window.innerHeight;
    } else if (document.documentElement && document.documentElement.clientHeight) {
        //IE 6+ in 'standards compliant mode'
        myHeight = document.documentElement.clientHeight;
    } else if (document.body && document.body.clientHeight) {
        //IE 4 compatible
        myHeight = document.body.clientHeight;
    }
    return myHeight;
}

function getWidth() {
    var myWidth = 0;
    if (typeof(window.innerWidth) == 'number') {
        //Non-IE
        myWidth = window.innerWidth;
    } else if (document.documentElement && document.documentElement.clientWidth) {
        //IE 6+ in 'standards compliant mode'
        myWidth = document.documentElement.clientWidth;
    } else if (document.body && document.body.clientWidth) {
        //IE 4 compatible
        myWidth = document.body.clientWidth;
    }
    return myWidth;
}

var browserWidth = getWidth(),
    browserHeight = getHeight(),
    scrollOffset = window.scrollBarWidth();

if (browserWidth > targetWidth) {
  if (typeof document.body.style.zoom != "undefined")
    document.body.style.zoom = browserWidth / targetWidth;
  else if (typeof document.body.style.MozTransform != "undefined") {
    document.body.style.MozTransformOrigin = "left top";
    document.body.style.MozTransform = 'scale(' + browserWidth / targetWidth + ')';
  }
  else if (typeof document.body.style.WebkitTransform != "undefined")
    document.body.style.WebkitTransform = 'scale(' + browserWidth / targetWidth + ')';
  $(document.body).width(targetWidth - scrollOffset );}

if (browserWidth < targetWidth) {
  if (typeof document.body.style.zoom != "undefined")
    document.body.style.zoom = browserWidth / smallScreentargetWidth;
  else if (typeof document.body.style.MozTransform != "undefined") {
    document.body.style.MozTransformOrigin = "left top";
    document.body.style.MozTransform = 'scale(' + browserWidth / smallScreentargetWidth + ')';

    document.body.style.WebkitTransform = 'scale(' + browserWidth / smallScreentargetWidth + ')';
  $(document.body).width(smallScreentargetWidth - scrollOffset );}

           <!-- enable the callout only for your testing!!! -->
           <!-- window.alert("browser width - " + browserWidth + ", browser height - " + browserHeight + ", scroll bar offset " + scrollOffset); --> 
};

Hello, When a user registers @ my site, they never receive an email to confirm their registration. How do I fix this? Thanks

Parallelus
The emails sent for registration are internal WP and BP functionality. The theme has no involvement in this process.

I have been working on my site for about 2 days and have been trying various plugins. In the demo it features the ability for users to start their own blog which is partially why I purchased the theme. However, I am having difficulty locating a plugin for users to be able to do this? Any advice? Thanks

Parallelus
It’s a BuddyPress feature you must enable in the BuddyPress admin options. For help with BuddyPres or to learn how to use please visit: http://buddypress.org/

I came here to ask if you had any plans on making this a responsive theme. Then I see a great deal of your customers asking the same thing. I then see a guy even writing code to patch it.

I don’t understand; if (from what it appears) the vast majority of your customers want this theme to be Fluid/responsive why won’t you do it?

In my niche it’s an absolute must. If you won’t make this responsive I will have to get your competitors theme instead. I like your theme better. It has a polished look to it that others do not.

But if it’s not responsive I can’t do it.

Will you make it responsive? And if not why not?

Thank you, Patrick

Parallelus

If you read the many questions posted about responsive you will see that we have said on many occasions that we hope to add this functionality at some point.

We have not had time to add responsive functionality. If I had unlimited time to do everything requested by customers this would be the most powerful theme in the world. ;)

Default-user

Fantastic, thank you for your response. Not attempting to be a pain but I am making a decision on which way to go.

Could you please estimate your time frame as to when you will make this theme responsive?

I just need to be able to decide to get your theme or not. I like the looks of your theme better but need it to be responsive.

Thank you, Patrick

Parallelus

We don’t have a schedule for this. It could be in 2 months or 6 months. It is just a matter of when the time allows for it.

Awesome, amazing theme!

Question – Is it possible to add some text to the Groups/Activity/Forums page directly above the main content output?

When I edit the standard Group page and add text, that doesn’t seem to appear on the site.

I could do it by hard coding it into the template (groups/index.php) but with a theme update, it might resort back to default?

Solution? Thanks! -Josh

Parallelus

That’s how BuddyPress works. The pages it creates are just “placeholders” to inject their own content. Adding content to them won’t do anything. I think it’s an odd approach, but maybe I’m not fully understanding their structure. You could ask on the BP forums if there is a way to inject content into that page.

From the theme you could alter the layout of the BP areas (Appearance > Layouts) to have a static block before the “Default Content” and then add whatever content you want to that static block. This should accomplish the result you’re after.

Hi there,

could you please tell me salutation theme compatible with BuddyPress 1.7?

Thanks a lot

Parallelus
I haven’t tested it but I’ve been told it works well by our support team with a few possible style tweaks needed. Once it’s released and out of beta I’ll look at it closely.

Hi there, I am sorry if this has been asked before but it is too time consuming to scroll through 59 pgs of comments and I cannot find it on your documentation. How can I get rid of the ‘Apply Now’ tab at the top of the homepage?

Many thanks Lori

Parallelus
There isn’t an “Apply Now” tab. Is it a custom tab you named? This sounds like something we have documented on our Help Center.

Hello, I bought your theme some time ago, last year, used it, installed on a client, and yesterday something happened that made the whole theme be wrong. I was two days debugging the project, and just reinstall the theme in a fresh instance of wordpress, including the server, all new … and the same problems appeared. So far it seems to me that the theme was incompatible with the version “wordpress-3.5.1”. Turning the degub, shows hundreds of errors in php. Please can you check?

I recently took over as website manager and am not able to access theme support as I am not the original purchaser of the theme. I have requested the activation code from the original purchaser but have not received any response. Can you tell me if there is a way to get access to support without the original activation key?

Parallelus

It sounds like the problem you’re having is because you updated WP but didn’t update to the latest version of the theme. It’s impossible to ensure a theme is compatible with unreleased versions of WP so we release updates. If you don’t have the account used to purchase the theme you can’t update it.

Contact the original buyer and go through them for support and updates if you can. Even with the License code you won’t be able to update and that’s what you need.

Hi ,

I am really looking forward to buy this theme . i tried creating a test account but struck at the activation mail. anyways , i just want to see what the sliding login panel will look like after you are logged in

any help with a demo account ???

Parallelus

Sliding login panel after logging in? All of the login features are specific to showing only when logged out. Once logged in all of the “Login” features are hidden so you won’t see that panel at all.

We’ve restricted the demo registration for free webmail accounts like Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. because of spam content. Use a real email address from another email provider and you should be fine. Check your spam folders for the activation link.

The demo resets every hour or two so if you don’t complete the registration by then it will delete your user.

That was a Salutation feature originally so you can do it.

Hi,

I want to install bbpress like : http://themeforest.net/item/salutation-wordpress-buddypress-theme/full_screen_preview/548199

into my website , my website had bbpress2.0 plugin : http://kinhdoanhspa.com/Forums

Can i syn current forrum data with new bbpress theme of you .

Parallelus

The forums and their data is in your database. The theme only styles the content and output. You won’t need to “sync” anything. Once a new theme is installed on a WordPress site it takes over the styling and applies it’s look to your existing content.

Default-user

Hi parallelus,

Total, i already had forum which is plugin installed in my website . If i purchase your theme : http://themeforest.net/item/salutation-wordpress-buddypress-theme/full_screen_preview/548199 . Can you help me intergrate bbpress to my website like a static page . Thanks .

Parallelus

We don’t assist with installs or setup. Our support is specific to helping customers use the theme and ensure it works properly. The rest will be up to you.
