Hi Fahim,

I saw your reply and while appreciate that this might be a mix-up of versions, I have taken the liberty of getting screenshots and videos from my clients machine and another company.

A completely different company: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q7AxVTV8dc&feature=youtu.be

Furthermore, I took a look at your code and if I’m not mistaken it should not work according to this stackoverflow thread:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3915219/max-width-on-img-tag-not-working-in-ie8

Please do not give me a passive aggressive reply this time. I WILL follow up on my threat to try and have your products removed if I’m not satisfied with your response. I don’t want an image back, I want a solution. Besides I asked for a screenshot of a real version of IE8 .

FOR EVERYONE WHO IS CONSIDERING BUYING THIS THEME : Please check that it works across all browsers, I have checked this across 4 computers and they all break. I’m more than willing to accept that I might be wrong, but I need proof.

Farim I have emailed you twice 2 weeks ago and posted on here, you have replied to others but not to me. Your product is clearly faulty and you should not be selling it if it does not function correctly. If you do not reply to my emails and post previous post on here then I will be reporting you.

I am really sorry but somehow I didn’t noticed your email. I am replying it right now. Check your email.

I have a problem with the homepage. If I put articles in the homepage widget “middle left” and “middle right” using “ST_NEWS” but select “no” to “show image”, then too much white space is placed between the one item and the item beneath it. If I select show image, then the page looks fine. THis issue only affects Safari (viewed on an iMac). I looked at it on IE and FIrefox on both windows and imac and it looks okay.

Also, the stripes next to the various sections on the homepage don’t show on Safari (but okay on Firefox).

My version of Safari – version 6.0

Can you look into it?

FahimMurshed

I don’t have Safari installed on my laptop right now. When I will get back to my PC tonight, I will check and will let you the solution.

For those who are having problems with the logo not displaying, I would like to offer a solution which I hope will work for you. When naming your file, make sure it is all lower case and, if you have more than one word in your title, separate words with a hyphen and not a space:

My-logo.jpg” and “my logo.jpg” will not display. Correct would be “my-logo.jpg”

Thanks :)

Before you complain, have you actually uploaded only the theme folder?...

I have read through the comments here and feel that some of the issues are not caused by the theme but by something that is down to the way Themeforest serves the themes.

When the user purchases a theme, TF serves a folder to download. Thinking it is only the theme folder, the user uploads it and navigates to the themes section in WP. And there it is! So, the user clicks activate and it seems to work. But, funny things happen such as the slider not working, or some other bug. The user also gets annoyed because there doesn’t seem to be any documentation anywhere.

What has happened is that ThemeForest served a folder containing a demo site, the theme itself and the documentation. WP, however, went through this folder until it found the theme itself and then displayed that so the user thinks everything was correct. But the paths to the theme were not right and, as a result, some things worked, others didn’t. The theme designer gets lots of frustrated comments and can’t figure out what’s wrong. Or he/she has to point out that the user should only upload the theme folder (as happened here on two occasions).

This has happened to me on a number of occasions and I have seen comments for other themes on similar lines. TF should state explicitly or more clearly that the downloaded folder is not the only folder. It wozld save a lot of time for the users and the designer!

@ Fahim re: the Safari issue.

I’m at a loss to explain why the stripes are not working (also noticed that the social icons top right don’t work, whereas they worked before). I am thinking there could be a plugin issue somewhere. Your demo site looks fine on Safari. I still think the other issue regarding the image option in “st_news” is down to the theme. Also, the twitter widget throws an error.

There are a whole host of plugins that don’t work (usually stop the slider from working), which is a pain.

FahimMurshed

First of all, there’s no plugins used in this theme. All the features are the theme’s itself.

Regarding, the social icons make sure you’ve provided the URLs on the Theme Settings Panel.

I’ve tried to figure out the issue of Safari but I found it fine last night. I don’t know why but I will have more closer look anyhow.

And regarding the Twitter Widget, when you load the site, the twitter widget requests Twitter to retrieve the tweets. But as you are building up your site right now then definitely you are hitting your site once after again. When you keep hitting simultaneously then Twitter blocks your IP for some moment and then you see the error. But actually everything is fine.

Regarding the slider, make sure you have provided Animation Speed and Interval in the Theme Panel.

Some suggestions for making this theme absolute world class.

I think that this theme has a clear, professional look and, despite the bugs, will be implementing it. However, there are some areas that could be improved and would prompt me to buy it again and even be willing to pay more than 40 dollars. Ideas I feel would set this apart from any other theme on the market.

1. Improve category pages layout. In order to allow a more varied layout for the category pages rather than just the typical list-style look, have a more interesting layout such as a featured article and a column-style layout similar to the homepage. Example is the WPSN theme (WARNING: DO NOT BUY ANY THEMES FROM PRESSJUNKIE . THE PERSON BEHIND IT IS A FRAUDSTER ).

2. Widgetise the category pages. More complex, but would be absolutely amazing, allow the user to create custom layouts for category archives (not individual posts), even widgetising the pages similar to the homepage. So, for example, the “Basketball” page can have a different logo, the option of having different “st_news” sections, etc. The site I’m working on has only six different sections. The option of creating individual layouts for these sections would be phenomenal!

3. Homepage: allow “read more articles”. If I place the first three stories of a category on the homepage, I would like the user to know that these are not the only stories. So, it would be great if, under the three stories there were a a link to the category main page.

4. Homepage: “ST_NEWS” layout. For one category widget, I would like the option to have one featured article with the following articles formatted as thumbnails and excerpts (see the “business” widget on the homepage of the “Broadcast” theme (available on Themeforest) for an example. I would also like the option to list stories with only titles in a smaller font size. This option exists on Sportica but it looks messy.

So, Fahim, just some thoughts for you to get working on. :)

FahimMurshed

Thanks for your ideas lernerleben. I am really feeling proud that someone is giving me ideas about improving my items.

But actually the fact is, I am currently working on another theme that will hopefully be available this month and also as I am student I am really messed busy with everything.

So, when I will get some free times, I will definitely think about it and will try to implement your ideas.

Thank you very much anyway :)

re: the safari issue.

Hi Fahim, I don’t understand why there is a problem as your demo site works well. That’s why I believe there is a plugin issue with one of the plugins I have installed. Will try and see if I can find what the issue is.

re: Twitter Sorry, your widget doesn’t work. I have Twitter on the site via Twitter’s own embed code and another plugin I use on another site and it works fine. Your widget didn’t work before I installed anything.

re: enhancement to your theme I can perfectly understand that, as a student, your time is limited and that you are also keen to develop other themes. However, it doesn’t look good to launch a theme and then not develop it regularly. Things change, problems develop, new browser issues appear, security risks occur (I know because another theme I installed on another site was hacked due to a timthumb.php security flaw). And, importantly, WordPress gets regularly updated and causes mayhem with themes.

Your Sportica theme is visually better than the others. In terms of functionality, it could be improved. Alternative category templates/layouts would put your themes in another league. There’s more to a site than just the front page!

I can disable the mobile view of the page? I need to have full version on any device.

Open style.css from the theme folder and remove lines 446 to 589.

Hi

I have just bought this theme and there seems to be problems with it displaying in IE. I see that there have been previous comments about this problem and you have not delivered a solution to them.

When will there be a version that works in IE?

If there is not then I will be wanting a refund for my purchase.

Thanks

FahimMurshed

I have replied to your email. Please check.

FahimMurshed

Your theme has been set up. Now go through the documentation and make everything arranged. Everything is working fine. If you feel uncomfortable to read the documentation and setup then send me your login details in my email and I will set it up for you.

Hi Fahim,

I have noticed two issues with the Breaking News ticker. One is that the text of the previous item stays on screen while the next one appears. The other is that white space gets pushed to the right. This is noticeable when the title of the story is very long. Do you have solutions?

Please see here for screenshot of the two issues. http://www.lernerleben.de/downloads/breaking-news.jpg (this is not the site I am updating)
FahimMurshed

I don’t have any instant solution for you right now. I will take a look later but for now you can switch to ‘fade’ mode instead of blink. I think that should work!

Hi Fahim

Yes, it does work. Actually, it looks better than the reveal option. So, thanks for that! :)

FahimMurshed

Welcome. And THANKS for purchasing my item anyway :)

I’ve never really used wordpress before, but I managed to activate the theme, but have no clue how to make it look like your the desired end result like the preview. Can you please email me and give me a quick run down on how to make it look like the preview on the website. TIA

FahimMurshed

After activating the theme, I suggest you to read the documentation and go through it. But the highest I can do is you can send me your login details of your installation in my email and I can set it up for you.

Hi Fahim,

Have discovered an issue with links on images. If I link a picture to a webpage, it doesn’t link to the page I want but instead opens the picture in a lightbox. IS there a fix for this?

Hi Fahim,

I managed to get it working, but how to do go about putting the news ticker at the top about the logo? TIA

FahimMurshed

Place the ST New Highlight Widget at Breaking News Area. It should work by then.
