I like it, very simple but very user friendly. I can see a Non Profit using this theme. Will wait a couple days for a customer but this one is one my Wish List.

Hello,

Amazing theme!

Quick 2 questions before I purchase:

- Are the psd files for the background options included? I would like to customize one for a project.

- Is it possible to use different backgrounds on pages?

Hi,

yes, images are included in PSD files, feel free to customize it.

Sorry background can be currently set only globally for all pages, not per page.

Thanks. Martin

@ait:

Thank you! I am going to purchase it now. I was just thinking about it, in a future theme you might be able to use a custom key field on each page to select the css file for that page, allowing custom backgrounds and/or colors. I am not sure how well the header accepts wordpress hooks, but I can’t see why it would not work.

Thank you again!

Thanks, we might include that feature into future update.

Sorry to keep hassling you, but would you mind including an “export file” with this theme? I think it would speed my ability to learn your short codes.

OK, I’ll include it. In the meantime send me a PM, I’ll email it to you.

thanks.

It’s possible to use a simple background colour, no images?

Sure, that’s no problem at all :)

I bought this theme and the documentation is minimal at best. A few questions:

- How do i permanently change the site theme? Its not in the Simplicius options. and I dont want to click on the sidebar thing every time.

- How do I add sliders? If its short code can you give me an example?

Those are the 2 questions for now. Hopefully I can figure the rest out.

Beautiful theme!

In response to Hagvist (for custom per-page CSS0 try this plugin:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easyjscss/

I love it, it really works great!

Nice theme, however advertised shortcodes are not in the functions.php file and thus do not work.

This theme is beautiful, but I have to agree with qrpike that the documentation could use some improvement.

I was really expecting an option to change the background image or color in the theme’s admin panel, but couldn’t find anything. I assume this means it needs to be manually changed in a CSS or PHP file, but as a relative novice to WordPress (but not to CSS ), I was unable to determine where to make this change, so far.

I found another issue while playing with it more.

I was attempting to remove the Categories and Archives widgets from the right sidebar on a page with a default layout. However, the only way to get either to disappear is to activate another sidebar widget on the page edit page. If I add a sidebar widget from the main widget page (under Appearance), Categories and Archives are still there, and there appears to be no way to remove them short of activating another widget on the page edit page.

I can work around this for now, but it would be nice to see this corrected.

3) etc. etc. etc.

After more digging, it looks like you need to edit the following style sheet:

/wp-content/themes/simplicius/css/screen.css

And to figure out how to edit it, you’ll need to look at the css files in: /wp-content/themes/simplicius/css/

Alternatively, I suppose you could edit the template PHP files to include the appropriate theme CSS file below screen.css.

Pretty disappointing to see that changing the theme requires editing CSS files that can’t even be accessed through the site admin site. And a basic explanation of how to do so really should have been in the documentation.

As far as the sliders go, I haven’t dug into that yet. But it probably relates to all of the “image” boxes you’ll see at the bottom of your page edit screen, under “Page Kwicks Slider Options” and “Page Nivo Slider Options”.

Thanks DD – I will look at those files. This looked like a great theme but really seems to be a lot of work to just get the basic setup going.

Hello everyone,

I think I was the 2nd or 3rd person to purchase this theme. So far, it is a little more difficult to set up that I anticipated. However, for $37 it is a great deal.

In order to change the theme you do have to edit a css file. The file you have to edit is: “css/screen.css”

I am sure if you wanted to make it easier to edit, you could move it to the theme folder and change the link in the header to reflect its new location.

As far as the short codes go, I find that they work only some of the time. However, once you import his file, it is a little easier to figure things out.

Let me know if I can help you in any way.
