Hello, I want to decide which theme to buy, if you could answer the question above?

Hello,

I would like to combine BuddyPress with MultiSite such that each paying user in BuddyPress can create their own blog and have it available to other logged-in BuddyPress users but NOT the public. How easily would that be done in this theme? What about in your other theme, Dynamix?

Thank you! Hannah

Hey Hannah,

That functionality wouldn’t come with the Theme itself, that would be related to BuddyPress and possibly something like S2Member to handle paid memberships – that said both Themes integrate with BuddyPress and are compatible with the S2member plugin.

For more information on how to set it up, I would recommend using the BuddyPress forums to see if that setup is possible.

Thank you for the help!

One more thing - would you suggest Tersus or Dynamix for what I’m looking for? What is the difference - is one more powerful or easier to use?

Default-user

Oh, and also, I don’t see a BuddyPress “Login” part on the demo site—is that something I would have to configure myself? Or does it come in the theme?

themeva

I would say Tersus is more powerful and slightly easier to use, mainly because it’s 18 months younger and has more up to date features.

I’m not sure what you mean by BuddyPress “Login” part – BuddyPress integrates with the Theme, you just need to install the BP plugin.

Default-user

Wonderful, sorry, I wasn’t clear! It just seemed on the demo website, there was no way on that theme to click “Register,” or “Log in,” and put in your username and password, like on lots of the other Buddypress-compatible sites. I was wondering how I would get that to show up, but maybe it comes with the Buddpress plugin as a widget? I have to look….

themeva

Hi,

My apologies, on the main demo BuddyPress is not enabled, you see the BuddyPress option enabled when you visit the BuddyPress demo site in the item description :)

It seems to be a great design but I am having a lot of problems with gallery despite having a few years of programming. I installed the theme, I uploaded the demo content and gallery xml.

singapore.expatnextdoor.com/citysquareresidences/ I can’t see any images. Naturally you would want your homepage to look like what it looks in demo as a reference point then modify from there.

I followed screencast video 1 which isn’t what I am trying to achieve. Video2, it doesn’t either.

Honestly, this is too complicated. You would expect it to easily look like what it looks like in demo without spending hours figuring out. A bit disappointed to be honest..

themeva

Hi,

Please see the documentation and search for “Images not displaying” – it’s a permissions issue on your server, easily fixed.

In future, please use the support forum, this has been covered there too.

Just a few questions before I buy this. Is there a way to make the navigation and footer the full length of the page using your theme options? Is there a field for custom CSS?

Also with your animated content, is that used with posts and pages? And the slider options included is it able to pull content from your posts/categories automatically?

themeva

Hi,

You can align the menu below the logo, this will allow for full length. Yes the animated content can be used in Posts / Pages and the Sliders can pull the post data using categories, I hope that helps?

themeva

Nearly forgot, yes there is a Custom CSS field + the Theme includes a Child Theme for any larger customisations.

Default-user

O_O whoa man you have answered my questions thoroughly and I appreciate this. /Buys

Thanks :)

Hi, great theme…one question. How do i get the “info” button to show up on hover with the 3d slider?

themeva

Hi,

You need to enter content into the post, this should automatically display. Are you using 1.3.4?

Hey,

Love the theme. Wondering the easiest way to change the weight and color of menue text? URL: http://ftp.jordandirecttv.com I tried singing up for the forum but not working correctly. When I click “Complete sign up” it just blanks my password and purchase code. Thanks, Aaron

themeva

Hi, i just got this theme and saw that missing most coolest option Gallery Set, but in screencasts its shown everywhere. Is it something wrong with my installation or its really removed?

themeva

Hi,

It’s disabled by default because it’s now a deprecated function – however you can enable it via General Settings.

Just something to think about :)

Why is it that, there are all those great features like BBpress support, woocommerce support and so on, but no one has thought of a simple members area support integrated into the theme it self? I´ve yet to find a theme that offers that kind of integration, if someone registers on a wordpress website, that website better have multitude of plugins to redirect, customize a members area and so on and so forth (and most of those plugins are flawed or don´t work well together), else, log on to the back end, which is just, plain stupid if you want to maintain a member driven wordpress website. For a feature that is that big, i am amazed that no one has included a members area feature into their themes.

Another thing that bugs me is, there is no phpbb, vBulletin or other forum support in wordpress themes, only flawed plugins that promise some kind of bridge features.

I’ve replied to your email, you’re already registered on the Help Center, hence why it won’t allow you to register.

Hi, Tesus is a great theme but VERSION 1.3.4 has problems with shadow effect for sliders and pictures. Is there any way to fix it?

Thank you in advance

themeva

Hi,

Thanks :)

It must be a cache issue or something else, the demo is using 1.3.4

Hi!

I’m a very happy user of Dynamix, and I’m very seriously thinking about switching to this one given the features it shows… but I’ve got a question first. Do you know if it is possible that once a user decides to register, gets registered into buddypress automatically, and at the same time be able to use that same registration info to buy items within woocommerce?.

Thank you so much!

themeva

Hi,

I’m not sure if woocommerce uses WordPress login data, if it does then, yes it will work. It might be worth checking with woocommerce regarding this.

Hi, I’m not able to log into your support center anymore and didn’t get your response on my 2 problems: 1. Blog posts are not showing full-width anymore since the latest update 2. Social share icons are not working properly, as I described in the forum. Pleeease help!

themeva

Hi,

Please try re-registering – users without a purchase code get flagged and removed, it must have been that.

Default-user

I just tried and it doesn’t let me. Is it the invoice number??

Default-user

I found the purchase code. It still doesn’t let me register and I can’t sign in. Please answer here. I posted the problems in detail on your support site yesterday.

themeva

Please click my avatar here and send me your purchase code and I’ll try for you. The fix is on the Help Center.

Hi,

thanks for the great theme. I bought it a couple of months ago. No I am facing an issue after updating the “NextGEN Gallery plugin” and after updating the theme: Galleries don’t show on sites any longer. The plugin testing function says: “Check theme compatibility: Missing the call to wp_head() in your theme, contact the theme author”.

I also wondered how to integrate the social media icons on my blog that should be the starting page. I have set “Front page displays: Your latest posts” in the WP settings since I want to have the blog for the starting page.

What can I do?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards.

Hi Serge, can you post this on the Help Center please @ http://help.northvantage.co.uk

Hello, I like this theme much. but I have one question.. Can I change width of theme? I want wider layout.

themeva

Hi,

Yes you can, it’s a simple change to the CSS to increase the width, because of the way it’s designed the inner elements adapt automatically.

Good afternoon Im a professional photographer would this site help me to showcase and sell my work well or is this more geared towards the business end ? I can change the navigation tabs to say what I want? Also I take I could do a video page for our youtube videos ? And lastly I have a scheduling system through schedulicity I use to schedule our customers I take it that I could easily embed the button for that on one of our photography workshop pages ? And finally this looks powerful do you have or can you send me to sample of what a site would looks like The basic theme I plan to use will be black background and white lettering thank you for all you help.

themeva

Hi,

My apologies for the delay.

  • 1) Yes, you can change the tabs to what you require.
  • 2) Yes, you can have YouTube, Vimeo or self hosted videos
  • 3) Yes, use the button shortcode and enter any URL you like.
  • 4) Sure, this page is using the ‘Dark’ default skin. http://tersus.northvantage.co.uk/grid-gallery/

    Can the social media icons be added top the top of the page or do they have to stay in the footer?

    themeva

    No, they can be placed pretty much where you like, using the Shortcode Generator.

    Also is it possible to move the header and place the tabs in various place on top of the page ? , Tersus is on the left my company name I would want to move to the center.

    themeva

    You have the option to align the logo “left,center,right” and the same for the menu too.

    Default-user

    Thanks for answering all my questions after looking at nearly 2000 themes this is one of the best . I cant wait to see how my work our content looks when I complete this site. I plan on building a total of three sites can I use this code more than once or do I have to purchase three separate times ?

    themeva

    No problem, yes, you would be required to purchase 3 different licenses.

    I just came across Tersus and it looks like a great theme. Here’s a few presale questions…

    1. What fonts are loaded into the theme and can they easily be swapped out and resized?

    2. How difficult would it be to disable the hidden content window and reposition a contact form and FAQ in normal pages?

    3. Will your theme place nice with Layer Slider or Revolution Slider? I need some of those effects.

    4. On the Stage feature, is there anything that better explains what the possibilities are with that? Looks like it could be valuable but I’d like to know more.

    5. In terms of support, how long do you expect to update Tersus? I have to ask because I just had two themes bought from Theme Forest go belly up when I moved to WP 3.5.

    6. Some Theme Forest product fails the page load test because of feature bloat. Have you tested Tersus to see how to optimize it for speed?

    7. I tested the responsive function and while it shrinks the content to fit the phone screen, reducing the slider and other elements doesn’t help with readability.

    Is there a plugin that will create a different mobile look, one that blocks certain elements such as sliders and large elements?

    I may have a couple of other questions, but this is a start. Thanks.

    Hi Jerry,

    My apologies for the delay:
    1. There are a 25 Google and 20 Cufon fonts to select from, you can also add upto 2 more Google fonts and 1 extra Cufon font. They’re also resizable via the Skin Settings admin page.
    2. It’s a simple admin option to disable the Drop Panel section and the FAQ and contact form elements are shortcodes and can be placed where ever you require them.
    3. I can’t see any issue with using them with the Theme, it’s designed to play nicely with plugins, any issues and I can help resolve them.
    4. The stage gallery is very flexible, you can change the width / height, add videos, change the transition animation and works with pretty much any of the short codes e.g. content animator, contact form.
    5. I’m continuously updating both my Themes, you can see the change log in the item description. I have a dedicated support site too.
    6. I have indeed, load the Tersus site into Google page speed test and you’ll see it scores around 96/100. Other tests are good too, the biggest factor is image optimisation.
    7. Which elements do you mean, if it’s images you mean, you can set a larger initial size or optimised for phone size. Fonts etc do scale for readability.
    8. Yes, you can add blocks of phone / tablet / desktop only elements.
    Default-user

    Thanks for the reply on my questions. As I don’t want to get into minutiae here on your sales thread, is there another place I can ask more detailed questions on the mobile issue? This looks like winner. I just need to get a little deeper.
