Since I couldn’t find the Ajax ’Load More’ option in the Options Box of the Blog template for “Masonry & Grid”, I’m assuming that feature is unavailable for blog pages?

Dream-Theme

Hi,
At this moment ajax is available in portfolio and galleries. It’s planned for blog on the beginning of March.

I think it would be cool if we were able to customize our 404 error page ….Is this a possibility? or will this be added int he future? Thanks:)

Dream-Theme

Hi,
As you know, at this moment it’s possible only in code. But since we’re getting this sort of requests quite often, we’re thinking of ways to enable this function.

Ok, that would be sweet! thanks for the reply!:)

Hello

Im trying to build a page with the layout builder and i was wondering why i cannot add elements in the same cell(container) side by side and not one beneath another?Do you have any solution for that?

Hi – I’m keen to buy the theme but I need to to a small subscribe form that sits to the right of the slider on the homepage

is it possible to do that with the theme?

also is it possible to use a spefific hex value on accent colours?

thanks

Dream-Theme

Hi,
You can use third party plugin to enable this capability.

Default-user

thanks – would you recommend one to work with dream theme?

Dream-Theme

It depends on what mailing service you’ll be using: MadMimi, MailChimp, some self hosted solution, etc. etc.

Hi Miroslav,

FYI, if a logo is not set for the floating menu in Theme Options > General, no logo is shown in microsite (even if I set a logo for the floating menu at the sidebar of the microsite template).

Best regards.

Dream-Theme

Hi,
It sounds like some sort of JavaScript error (in this case you need to submit a support ticket). OR you setting url of logo instead of uploading/choosing it from media library.

fatbones

Sure, that it was. Figured it out! Thanks. ;D

Miroslav,

Regarding the smooth scrolling for the next update, please check this microsite: http://www.apple.com/es/iphone-5s/

It will be possible to scroll up and down with PgUp and PgDown keyboard keys for easy of use?

Dream-Theme

Hi,
This is possible only for custom sites, not mass-market themes:( Sorry.

Hi,

I have just updated to ver 3.2.1 and I am now getting the following error message when saving theme settings:-

“Failed to create customization .CSS file. To improve your site performance, please check whether “…/wp-content/uploads/” folder is created, and its CHMOD is set to 777.”

If I revert back to ver 3.2.0 this message does not appear but re-appears when I try to update to ver 3.2.1.

I would not expect to set my uploads folder to 777. Can you help with this issue. Should I revert back to 3.2.0 in the short term?

Best Regards

We were not changing anything in styles caching mechanics of The7.. Please, submit a request via our online help-desk http://support.dream-theme.com – we’ll get back to you ASAP and take a look what is wrong. ?Thanks!

First, congrats for this awesome theme! I’m just about to purchase it but first I need to ask a (probably dummy) question. In your pre-build stuff (for instance the “send us a message” form), in light grey you can read some default words such as “Name *” “Telephone *” etc. Is that easily customizable? (e.g. I would like to use that form in another language). By “easy” I mean not needing to alter any code, just to play with the administrator panel. Thanks in advance!

Dream-Theme

Hi,
You can install plugin like “codestyle localization” to change theme captions from admin panel. But better solution would be using Contact form 7 to build any contact form you like.

Are you planning on releasing a patch for LayerSlider 5.0.2? I am getting alerts that it needs to be upgraded.

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Please, upgrade the LayerSlider. You can find newest version in theme package in “Plugins” folder.

Hi 2 small pre purchase questions. The floating menu does not move very smoothly away, can this be improved? Like Enfold? If you want to work with tabs, can you than create tabs in those tabs and work with multiple columns, such as 1/2 1/2 or 1/3 1/3 1/3?

Default-user

Sorry also 2 more questions.

How long will you update this theme? Is this indefinitely or stops it in time? Is it possible to take my cart away and fill with other new links as contact and about us?

Default-user

The search button is away when floating? Why?

Dream-Theme

Hello,

The floating menu does not move very smoothly away, can this be improved? Like Enfold?

Because it’s not Enfold and we prefer the way it works now. It will not be changed.

If you want to work with tabs, can you than create tabs in those tabs and work with multiple columns, such as 1/2 1/2 or 1/3 1/3 1/3?

No. It is nightmare in terms of usability.

How long will you update this theme?

I think the best answer would be looking at when theme was released and how many updates and features were added already! :) In other words, quite long ;)

The search button is away when floating? Why?

Because we believe it’s unnecessary. It’s just a waste of screen estate. Moreover we strongly recommend even not to put a logo in the floating panel: when you viewing site on widescreen tablet all that huge floating stuff just steels your screen estate and irritate you.

Default-user

Hi, Thank you for answer. The floating menu comes now from nowhere suddenly at the top of the screen when you’re scroll down. That can scare people? Is it not possosible to make this otherwise? Enfold was only a example how you can make it. I think that is better for everyone.

From the thabs thats annoying. I want not work with pull down menu’s but with tabs. That will say (for example your demo) you click on ‘pages’ than you see on above or on the left about us, testimonials, team, faq, contact, pricing tables, page layouts. Do you have a solution for this? On your demo I see ‘Shortcodes’ have also this, but I want preferably at the top.

You don’t answer at my question for the links in the topbar, like contact and about us. I don’t want this in de main navigation menu.

Hi, I had some issues with permalinks: I wasn’t able to set the permalink of a page , because this particular permalink had been used before for another page, that I had permanently deleted. Now, the permalink seems to work again, after updating the permalink structure.

But now, I simply can’t access this page by clicking any menu button, or button in general. I can only access the page by manually typing the permalink into the address bar. If I click on a (menu) button, that is supposed to redirect me to the page, I’m being redirected to other pages, that contain similar content/names. I hope you can help me with this problem. Thanks in advance!

Love the theme – by far the easiest to customize so far! Is there anyway to change the primary menu background color? Maybe some CSS code? I’d like it to be the main blue color in the theme with a green hover color. The drop down menu can remain the same.

Thanks ! Tom

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Thanks!

Can you please be more specific which background we’re talking about? Thanks! (I’m asking because you actually can change the menu background in “WP-admin > Theme Options > Header”, in boxes “Header background” and “Transparent header”)

duffitus

How do I add my own jquery script? I want to add a script that fades in a Mailchimp pop-up box from the footer. I tried placing the code in the footer.php, but it’s non-responsive.

Here’s the code: <script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function(){ $(".sign-up").click(function(){ $("#mailchimp_panel, .close").fadeIn("slow", "linear"); }); $(".close").click(function(){ $("#mailchimp_panel, .close").fadeOut("slow", "linear"); }); }); </script>

Do I need to write it a special way to function within your theme?

Dream-Theme

Hi,
It depends on where you need to put it :D Usually it’s “header.php” or “footer.php”

I’m trying to set-up custom sub menu’s for my portfolio sections through the use of widgets, but keep getting ‘Please fill all widget settings!’ and I can’t see what additional settings need to configured.

Could you let me know how to either correct this error or a quick guide on adding sub menus through widgets in your theme please?

An example can be seen here: http://www.art-restoration-wales.co.uk/project-category/cms-portfolio/

Thanks in advance.

How would you go about moving the nav menu on mobile from centered below the logo to either the top right of the header slightly padded or to the right of the logo?

I’m asking from this account as I don’t have access to the account used to purchase the theme as that’s handled by a different department in my company.

on your demo video stripes does not work properly on latest version of chrome or firefox. Im on a mac. latest everything and tested on different computers. I want to purchase but need this feature

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Strange. Works perfectly well for us. Can you please specify what you mean by “does not work properly”? Thanks!

Default-user

hope this helps. I really like this theme: firefox shows this: bad quality and not full, but shows full once you move the browser around/resize back and forth.http://www.ehent.com/7examples/firefoxvid.png

Chrome does not work at all. I hear audio but that it. http://www.ehent.com/7examples/chromevid.png all latest versions or browsers on mac running 10.8.5.

BTW: this is all on the demo site: Features Stripes section. I have viewed other themes with video Bgs and video plays fine

Also: Does you theme support tother formats of video? IE Vimeo, MP4…

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Thanks for pointing on it – our coder will take a look.

You can use Vimeo and YouTube in portfolio, galleries, etc. But it cannot be used as video-background (in fact video-background in The7 is officially “experimental feature” and we’re not advertising it due to inconsistent browser suppot)

Hi,

Pre-purchase questions:

1- Is The7 NOT compatible with touch screen computers? I did read something above that got me concerned..

2- Does it work totally fine with touch screen monitors connected to desktop computers?

3- Will The7 be compatible with such kind of devices in future updates for sure, or is still not known?

4- Can I embed videos located at Vimeo.com and Youtube.com on a Gallery Page? And also in a Parallax based Homepage?

Please let me know as detailed as possible since many people will start using such kind of devices more and more often in near future…

Thank you VERY MUCH in advance!

Dream-Theme

Hi,
1, 2, 3. Perfectly compatible. Just some minor features are disabled. Microsoft is still struggling to correctly identify such devices.

4. To gallery – yes. But you cannot use it for fullscreen backgrounds of stripes.

I love the latest Demo Content of v3.2.1 too,just as http://the7.dream-demo.com/ right now. I guess many people are waiting for it. When could we get it? Please and thanks~

Dream-Theme

Hi,
We’re experimenting to split demo content in parts to make it usable for users with weaker servers. Thanks for patience and understanding!

Default-user

Well, I really need it for study. The latest demo content have many new sample pages and new menus that I like very much. It will be used to dummy offline website only. My real website will not import any demo content. So don’t worry about weaker servers and just give us a study-copy. :)
