Hello! Ok I am finally getting around to being ready for this theme. Couple questions: - The image that above the pages (like F. Scott Fitzgerald), does that have to be the same image when you press ‘page 2’ for example? - Within the story text, can you add small images as well? - Do you set the number or words or something, in order to paginate? - The index: Does this have to be A,B,C etc. Can it be months of the year, for example? - The only page templates here are the home page, and the about full page layout, correct?

- Oh one more thing. I notice the permalink does not change when going to page 2, 3, 4 etc. Is it just the “more” tag inserted for pagination? I’m asking because I’m wondering how I’ll be able to track Google Analytics on the additional pages or hits to those pages. :)

Thank you so much!

Hi there,

1. The image shown above the content is the featured image you assign using the built-in featured image tool of WordPress. Currently WordPress only allows a single featured image, so that will stay the same when you navigate the different pages.

2. You can add images inside the content. However, since this is a text-focused theme, I don’t really recommend it.

3. You can specify the number using the plugin mentioned in the video.

4. The index is organized by tag names, so whatever you name the tags will display there.

5. The index page is also a page template, but other than that, yes.

6. The pagination is using a built-in feature of WordPress. I just added an AJAX component to it. I can provide instruction for deactivating the AJAX feature if you’re worried about search engines. I don’t think it should be an issue, though.

Hope that helps!

Hello,

Great theme. My sister-in-law fell in love with it.

I’m having a problem getting pagination to work.

I have Autopaginate 1.1 installed and activated.

<–!nextpage–> isn’t working. The “force pagination” checkbox does nothing. After checking it, updating the page then shows it unchecked.

The site is SaraShrieves.com The first chapter of her book is on the front page but really needs pagination :)

The only plugins I have activated are: Autopagination OptionTree WordPress Importer

Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? :)

I’m having a major problem with my installation of the Novelist theme. Things were going along smoothly until late last week, when my client reported that the background image had changed. So, I reported the problem to the client’s web host.

Here is what the web host had to say:

This site is displaying a background image with the warning “do not hotlink images and steal bandwidth”. Our security team has reviewed this and found that this site was not compromised. It appears that the theme used from “themolitor” contains a reference to “http://themes.themolitor.com/wpnovelist/wp-content/themes/wpnovelist/images/background/background_5.jpg” and this image is being replaced by the warning that you see now. We recommend you change this reference to an image that is hosted on your site rather than referencing this from a 3rd party.

Needless to say, neither I nor the client are happy about the above. The background image was one of a library full of books. But, if it’s a hotlinked image, we’d rather replace it with one of our own images.

What can be done to solve the problem?

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

You’re using an image on my hosting/server, which technically is considered stealing (don’t worry, I’m not mad). Bandwidth is expensive and has consequences for my business when people who purchase my themes use images on my server. Recently my server has been crashing a lot and I realized it’s because users are using my images. As a result, I’ve had to take these measures of replacing the images in hopes to provide some education for users not aware of this.

My advice is to download the images you want and upload them to your own hosting account (via WordPress media upload tool). Then change the URL to the new URL you receive after uploading. If you acquired the image through importing demo content, ALWAYS make sure you click the check box that will download the images (instead of hotlinking them).

Hope that helps! And thanks for purchasing!

EDIT : I should note that this doesn’t have anything to do with my themes. This is a security measure related to my hosting account.

@theMOLITOR: Thank you for responding so quickly!

And I fixed the problem! Thanks again for your help!

theMOLITOR

Depending on the location the image originally appears, you’ll need to either go to the individual post/page or go to the theme options panel and review the settings there.

Thanks!

Am considering purchasing this theme but would like to know if there are any conflicts with plugins such as SEO for WordPress by Yoast or WP-Cache, etc.? Thanks!

Hi there,

Nope, no conflicts with those plugins. That said, if you do encounter plugin issues, they are best resolved by the developer of that plugin.

Thanks!

Hi, I’ve a few questions for you :

-Is it easy to change the background, I’d like to have a custom one ?, -Can I add a contact form, preferably on one single page; and further, can I use one single page if I want to (the left as the right, depending on the need) ?, -Is there a galery included ?, (just one more, promise) -Is there a slider included or maybe could I add one with a plugin, as a widget (for example above the body/page) ?

Hope you’ll see this soon (sad to say but I’m a little bit hurry), Thanks by advance.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

1. Yes, very easy.

2. Yes.

3. WordPress has a built-in gallery system.

4. That would be a customization. You can submit a request here: http://themolitor.com/custom

Thanks!

Hi Chris; this is a fascinating option. I have a few pet ideas that I want on my website and so I am wondering 1. Is video a customization, such as .mov or other video format? 2. Can I include links within the or at the end of the content that will take readers to other places such as a discussion forum on my site? 3. Do the same widgets that work on wordpress also work in the Novelist such as side content and links to other websites? 4. Can readers subscribe? 5. Can comments be moderated? Thank-you April P http://virtualpoetrytheater.com/theater/

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

1. There aren’t any unique video features outside of what WordPress does by default.

2. You can control whatever content/links you want to have.

3. The “info panel” that you access by clicking the ”+” is where that content displays.

4. All WordPress sites have an RSS feed users can use to subscribe. There are plugins out there that will make this process easier. Just search “RSS Subscribe” or something like that.

5. Yes. This is a default WordPress feature.

This looks like a promising solution for me. My questions. 1 – I only wish to publish 1 long story, are the left/right navigation available for this? 2 – Is the pagination done automatically or do we have to insert it? 3 – Can I make the content of my novel available to registered users only? 4 – A “remember me” function of some kind to return readers to the last page they were on would be nice.. what is your fee for customizations?

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

1. The left/right arrows are only for navigating through different posts.

2. Both. There is a plugin linked to in the help file that will do it automatically for you.

3. This would require a plugin. There are a lot out there to choose from. Doing a simple search on the plugins page will do the job.

4. This would require a plugin as well.

For customizations, please submit a request here: http://themolitor.com/custom—Someone from the Werkpress team will get back to you with pricing details.

Thanks!

Hi Chris,

I appreciate the unique theme and plan to purchase. And thanks for your informative responses in these comments, which answered at least half my questions… I do have a couple more, though: 1. Can the image at the top of the chapter be clickable, i.e., send reader to the Gallery? Can it have hover-over text? 2. Can portions of the text of posts be have hover-over text, link to the Index, and/or link to other URLs? Thanks very much!

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

1. That isn’t a built-in feature, so it would require the help of a developer. You can submit a request for that here: http://themolitor.com/custom

2. You can control the post text via WordPress. WordPress lets you add links, etc.

Hope that helps!

Hi, The moment I saw this theme, I understood it was made for me. I have been searching for a theme especially designed for fiction writers and was not able to find one yet. Thanks a lot for this. I’m planning to buy the theme, but before that few clarifications are necessary and here go my questions: -
  • My website is about episodic stories. It means that each story has parts and they are posted at a redefined schedule. (You can see my site here. The pagination of pages suits my website very much. However, the question here is that every time the next part of the story is updated, does a mail go to all subscribers?
  • Can widgets offered by wordpress be used? I don’t see any space for widgets like archives, subscribe etc.
  • How much customization costs?
  • Is the price for the theme renewable or do I become complete owner of the theme once I purchase it?
I may ask further questions to satisfy myself fully before I purchase this theme. Thanks once again. Waiting eagerly for your response…
theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Thanks for the nice words…

1. If each part of the story is a new post, then yes, they can get updated if you are using a plugin that does that. If you are just updating portions of an existing post, then I’m not aware of a way to let people know.

2. Yes, widgets are visible when you click the ”+” button in the upper right.

3. That depends on the customization. You can submit requests here: http://themolitor.com/custom

4. Complete owner :-)

Thanks!

I love this theme it’s the first that seems to be focused on writing stories. I am considering purchasing this but wanted to check on one thing first.

I would like to post some stories as multiple chapters. I understand that each chapter would be a new post. Is there a way to have those posts kept in similar categories so that when the reader hits the end of one chapter it can go to the post that has the next chapter, or even a table of contents to keep the stories in a readable order. Would this be a customization or would I just need some widgets to perform this?

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Yes, when you’re on a story, the next/prev arrows link to posts in the same category.

Regarding the table of contents feature, that would be a customization.

Thanks for your interest!

thanks for the quick response, pls don’t get me wrong, you have said ‘If you’re looking for a basic blog, you’ve come to the wrong place. ’ so I guess the basic stuff like bookmark, font/size change, chaper visibility, my library (index) with book cover images. should come with the theme and not consitered as ‘customization’ Apart from that good theme.

Perhaps these are silly questions, but I’m new to this. (1) How do I get tabs across the top for each of my pages, as in the demo (Home, About Drops, etc.)? And (2) How do I create an Index tab, also as seen in the demo version?

Thanks very much.

theMOLITOR

Hi there,

Please consult the help file included with the theme. It addresses these questions with nifty screenshots and videos :-)

Thanks!
