Is it possible to configure the “recent posts” section to be a featured post section instead with static content that link to a page?

Also, in your screenshots you show an email address and phone number at the top right of the site, but on the live demo version, there is no email/phone there. Is that just an easy configuration to add so I can put an email or phone number there?

Hey ryfi,

To answer your first question, no. It is not currently possible. However, it would be something that we could help you with.

Secondly, yes. The info at the top is easily toggled/edited in the admin portion of the site under the “Simpl Theme Options

ryfi

How much work would it be to make the changes?

Great work! Was it inspired by Orman Clark’s “Classica” theme? :)

Allur

Haha, thanks.

Actually no, it is a modification of a rejected design submission on 99designs.com. Click the source link on that page and you will even see the comment I left about pirating being uncool. Check the date for the comments in the thread, Classica had not even been released at the time. We are certainly no fans of pirating or “direct inspiration” as I have heard it cleverly called. We thrive on our own creativity, we have just been loaded down with client work and have only recently been able to take the reigns on our own projects. However, I would like to say that Orman Clark is the man and we are huge fans of his themes and Premium Pixels!

Nice and clean. Thought I would mention that the first post on the Archives page (Photo Shoot for Tourist Traps in Remote Locations) is showing no white space next to the photo of the guy in the hard hat in Safari. There is more space in Firefox. I use Safari and so noticed this right away. Just a heads up. Good luck. Tim

Allur

Hey Tim,

Thanks so much for the kind words and the heads up. Could you give us some more specifics about what you were doing when it happened? I was not able to reproduce the results that you mentioned and we certainly want to make sure that it is corrected.

Thanks!

Allur

Hey Tim,

I believe that the issue is now under control. Thanks again for letting us know and please tell us if you find anymore bugs. Thanks!

@HisHandiwork What?

Great theme guys, hope my feedback in the forums helped you with approval.

Allur

Absolutely, we took a little from all of the advice that we got and it was very much appreciated! Thanks!

Same theme as your main site?

Yes, we are using Simpl on our portfolio.

Can you make it compatible with IE7 ?

Allur

Hey Number34,

This is something that we have been discussing, I think that we will likely be releasing it in an update. Thanks for checking out Simpl and sorry for the inconvenience.

Allur

Hey Number34,

We whipped up a revised version of the theme today that is compatible in IE7 ! Pending the review and approval from the Envato Staff, it should be available within the next day! Thanks again for your interest and we apologize for the oversight!

Allur

The file has been approved and the new version is now available upon purchase!

This theme is lovely, i would appreciate a html version though as it makes me sad knowing all the nice themes are word press only…sign :(

Allur

Yeah, sorry about that. :( We aren’t currently planning to do an HTML only version…perhaps if there were enough requests for it. Thanks for checking it out!

This is a beautiful theme, and I hope you have a huge amount of sales (which you should). I’m purchasing it right now. :)

@HisHandiWork … This theme is nothing like the Classica theme. Not sure why you would even say that.

Allur

Thanks!

We agree, Classica is amazing and serves a different purpose. We purchased it and will continue to support Orman and all of the wonderful things that he does! Unfortunately, as you can see from the response…ours is almost ancient in comparison…we were a bit slow to come around. =)

Purchased, and excited!! If your support is anything like Orman’s your sales and reputation will go through the roof. :)

Allur

Thanks so much for the support! We are certainly trying our best and we are in the process of working on our own support forum. Much more to come! Thanks for the kind words.

On first install, I get this error. Simply removed the } in the footer.php, but wanted to bring it to your attention.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home/content/28/4988728/html/ridingsince/wp-content/themes/simpl/footer.php on line 54

Also “never pulished” misspelled, easily corrected, again just wanted to bring it to your attention for next update.

Also after making a blog post I get this error as well.

array(3) { [“imagelink”]=> string(0) ”” [“author”]=> string(0) ”” [“videolink”]=> string(0) ”” } array(3) { [“imagelink”]=> string(0) ”” [“author”]=> string(0) ”” [“videolink”]=> string(0) ”” } Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/28/4988728/html/sitename/wp-content/themes/simpl/extend/simpl-post-options.php:63) in /home/content/28/4988728/html/sitename/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 897

I think the documentation could have been a lot better with some examples of “creating your first blog post” “creating a portfolio post” etc… It explains where they are and what they do, but I am having some trouble and errors making a post, and trying to set a thumb for the post. An option to turn off lightbox would be great as well.

Allur

- Wanted to make sure that you saw the response.

Hmmm, no bueno…thanks for the heads up and sorry for the inconvenience. We will have all of those issues addressed asap. We are on it!

Allur

Hey Brian,

We just pushed an update to the reviewers covering all of the issues that you had aside from the documentation. We are going to continue debugging until all seems to be well and we will release additional documentation changes in the near future. Thanks again!

Sounds great. I probably wouldn’t need any help in the documentation, but when I was getting those errors it was making me think I was simply doing something wrong. I look forward to the updates, and possibly the “ilike” plugin as well. :)

Allur

Yeah, that’s our bad. Now that we have had the pleasure of going through this process, hopefully our proceeding releases will go off without a hitch! The like things is coming…..soon. Thanks again, can’t wait to see it when you finish.

Hi! Just can’t get the slider to work. I’ve followed the documentation and added three images. The homepage displays the first one, no sliding, no arrow or anything.

/Johan

Allur

Thanks for purchasing, we appreciate it!

Interesting…that feature is definitely working. There could be a version issue or perhaps you have the url for the link swapped with the url for the slide image itself? If not, we will need to see a screenshot of your admin panel the way that you currently have it setup when you are getting the error. Please send the screenshot to admin@allur.co. Thanks and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi,

Admittedly a complete newbie with WP and also using a theme so this is all very mind-boggling, but after downloading your theme and working through your documentation I can’t seem to get the footer to show – is there a simple solution to this?

Great theme!

Tor

Allur

Hey Tor,

Thanks for purchasing Simpl, it is greatly appreciated! We have an update we pushed throught to the reviewers that will solve the issue that you are having however, it has not yet been approved. To fix it, all that you need to do is remove line 54, the curly bracket, from the “footer.php” file. Again, sorry for the inconvenience, we are expecting them to approve the update shortly. Thanks again!

Allur

Hey Tor,

Just got the notice from the Envato staff, update approved! All that you have to do now is re-download the latest version from your dashboard and the error will be fixed after a fresh install of the file mentioned earlier! Thanks!

Brilliant. All sorted. Do you know how proud I am that I even knew how to do that! :)

Congrats! Glad that it all worked out, we would love to see the end result when you are finished.

Give these extremely nice guys a chance to sort out a bug or two because this theme is excellent. It’s very clean, organized, and easy to customize. First theme seems to always have a hiccup or two, but once it’s all sorted this theme should definitely be a top seller!

Allur

You sir are too kind! Thanks once again for the positive feedback! ;)

  • Bought between 100 and 499 items

Looks great!!

Any chance of having the Portfolio page Full Width and with a extra column?

Cheers, P

Allur

Thanks for the positive feedback! It is definitely something to think about…possibly a future update to watch for.
