Hi,

I’m interested to buy (awsome functional and beautiful theme) but I need a little bit other functionality then The Novelist target (I think).

Will be possible to use The Novelist not as single author works presentation but for the group of authors? The authors should be able to login to wordpress accounts and be able to manage their portfolio. I would like to achieve the visitors will be able to explore the site not only by all artciles but aslo By Author.

What do you think, this kind of modification of The Novelist is “possible” and it will be “ordinary” cusomization withou huge rewrite and work?

Thank you.

theMOLITOR

Thanks!

Yes, you can definitely do that. WordPress has a user-role system, so you can assign users as an “author”, which allows them to sign in and create posts.

You can also tag posts by the author’s name/username and that will display on the “index” page template.

Hope that helps!

Hi themolitor,

I like this template but would like to get an idea of ‘modification costs’ before I purchase it. How can I get in contact with you to discuss the modifications needed and get a quote on the cost?

Thanks, Chas

Disregard the above post – I found the customization request link in a previous post….

Just purchased and installed, and so far so great. The only trouble I am having right now is when I try to Import Layouts using the text code provided it tells me “Your Layouts could not be Imported”. I was able to successfully do the Options XML and Options Data prior to attempting the Layouts.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

theMOLITOR

Thanks for purchasing!

You don’t need to import layouts. Just disregard that.

Best,

Chris

Hi Chris,

I sent you an email direct, how did you go?

It was about how can the page be viewed the same as internet explorer on one page to also do the same in firefox. Thanks Mat

Hi Chris,

Great work! before I purchase the theme I like to know if I can embed video instead of images within the postings – stories. Secondly iframe interactive content (already posted elsewhere), in place of article images. Much appreciated, -Sil.

theMOLITOR

Hi Sil,

Thanks! You can insert videos inside the post content area just as you can with any WordPress-powered theme. Regarding the images above the content area, the theme currently only supports images in that space.

Keep in mind, customizations are available upon request here: http://themolitor.com/custom

Thanks!

HI Chris, we have been looking for a theme like this for presenting public domain content on our site (a current MESS !) www.thelutherproject.com. We tried to use another theme purchased on themeforest and it has a lot of bugs. Would you be willing to donate a single use theme for this project? We are a 501c3 charity and would greatly appreciate it. Please contact me if you need more details. thank you and we really like your themes. Lauren

Awesome, Awesome theme! I’m loving it. Quick question. I write mostly poetry, which looks funky in the double column view. Is it possible to define a single column for those posts in the category ‘poetry’? How would you recommend going about this? Thank you for such a great theme.

theMOLITOR

Thanks!

The ”.entry” tag in style.css uses the column-count style. Just change it to “1” (currently “2”) and that will remove the double-columns. Doing this for category specific posts is a bit more tricky. For customizations like that, please use this form: http://themolitor.com/custom

Thanks again!

Hi there,

Thanks for purchasing!

This doesn’t appear to be a theme-related issue but has to do with the characters you’re using in the tag names. I recommend making sure you’re using appropriate characters.

If you continue to have trouble, please create a thread on the support forums: http://themolitor.com/forums

Hi Chris, Love the theme; I’ve a couple of what may be really simple questions (you should be flattered someone as unused to all this could use your download!): Can the words ‘The Novelist’ be removed, or are they embedded? Can you let me know how I turn comments off completely, so that I can use it as a static website and not a blog? Where would you suggest I could incorporate my logo so that it’s quite prominent? Can the Facebook/Twitter buttons be enlarged in any way? How do I get a drop down menu if only the one is allowed across the top, i.e. can I have a sub-menu under one of these headings, and if so, how?

Please don’t scream at the screen, you have someone here who has no idea about these things or if I’m asking for the world! Any help would be greatly appreciated! :) Diane

Hey!

A client of mine bought this and doesn’t seem to know how to use your support (like they don’t know their login or whatever). The purchaser is a writer, and a writer only if you get my drift ;).

So I have a question. They want to load a wordpress page with ajax in the “slide out” widget area, how would I go about doing this? Thanks :)

If you could either respond to this or email me back (through my theme forest page) that would be great!

Really cool theme btw, I think I’ll be purchasing it as well eventually!

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

There are instructions here: http://www.themolitor.com/forums/register.php

Unfortunately I can’t verify you have a client who purchased the theme, so I’ll have to ask that you have them login to the forums. Hope you understand.

Thanks!

Thanks for your help a couple of comments ago Chris. I’m trying to register and got the code from exactly the place you said, even got the page to tell me an email with my password would come to my email address within five minutes…..this was a couple of days ago. Any thoughts how else I can access these forums? Cheers, Diane

Hi Chris,

This is a a great theme. I am considering buying it but I would like to clarify some doubts first… I am just starting to work with wordpress so please be patient :) Can we add share buttons to posts? Can we add facebook plugins and a widget for recent comments to the site? Where would they be shown? Can we order the posts ascendantly by date? Can we add a contact page with a contact form?

That’s it for now… Thank you. Best regards, Susana

theMOLITOR

Hi Susana,

WordPress allows you to add plugins, pages and widgets, so the short answer is yes.

Plugins should work just fine with this theme as it follows best practices, but know that I do not provide support for 3rd party plugins. I do provide support for my themes, though ;-)

Hope that helps!

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your reply. I bought the theme yesterday :) I am having difficulties with to things… 1. I can’t seem to display a page dependent from another page 2. Can you tell me the name of the pagination plugin you mention in the tutorial video?

Best regards, Susana

Hi again Chris,

I managed to solve the problem of dependent pages and I already found the autopaginate plugin… Now I just have to make it work.

Best regards, Susana

I translated using Google. Sorry if there are any errors.

I would like to disable loading of the index, because it hides the url that the reader is at the moment, making it difficult for the user to resume playback where you left off. Is it possible?

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

I’m not sure what you’re asking. Sorry :-(

I want to disable the loading of the homepage that happens when I do navigation using the white triangles on the sides, because the URL is masked. I want the reader to know the page number that is.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Yes, I can provide instructions for disabling AJAX , which allows the content to load dynamically.

Thanks for clarifying your question!

Chris

Default-user

Thank you! But trial and error got resolved. Thanks and again sorry for the shoddy Google translation.

theMOLITOR

Did you purchase? I don’t see a “purchased” banner on your comment???
