Can I customize the page title text (font, size) I found the easiest way is to use fancy page tile – so I can display my own text, but I cannot figure it out how to customize the size of it. By default it`s H1 and H2 for tagline.

I figure it out.

I just noticed something different in IE. I’m in boxed mode with a graphic background. If I zoom out, both the boxed content AND the background get smaller, revealing a blue background behind the background. In chrome and firefox, the background remains fixed while the boxed content gets smaller.

Is there a way to overcome this?

Hi,
Which version of IE we’re talking about? In IE9 theme will not look 100% same as in modern browsers. In IE8 it will be readable, but not look good. IE7 and older are not supported (and will never be).

Default-user

Version 11

Hi,
Though I assume it is normal behavior of IE 11, can you please provide links to 2 comparison screenshots? Thanks!

Hi,

After checking the comments here and looking through the support forum about iPhone browser crashes being related to 3D sliders; as this is a problem I’ve run into during my testing of certain pages, posts, and portfolios on an iPhone 4S with iOS7, I wondering if you have some advice with regard to specific options, limitations, or work arounds I should be aware of.

I have mostly tested pages, posts, and portfolios using the Rev Slider and all of these crash the iPhone browser. Is there another slider I should use to create a simple slideshow type page, post, or portfolio that will NOT crash on iPhone (or, looking ahead, Galaxy/other Android phones)?

Thanks

Jan

Hello,
3D slideshow stability on hand-held devices depends on number of images in it: more images – more math going on there.

Solution is to use less images OR slideshow can be tweaked a bit to work more stable on hand-held devices (but this will make it look more jerky on computers). Please, submit a request via our online help-desk http://support.dream-theme.com – our support manager will assist with it.

Hi, I run many sites. Love The7 look and am considering switching to this theme. For my other sites I’ve been using the best-selling WP theme on Envato, and as you might imagine because that theme has 3 programmers and 35k users, they have been pretty fast to become compatible with various other popular systems. For example, that theme recently became 100% compatible with DAP. (for those here that don’t know, DAP, or Digital Access Pass, is the number 1 system for running e-commerce and membership sites, and for delivering digital goods)

1. Have you tested The7 theme with DAP?

2. Have you tested The7 theme with W3 Total Cache? (or WP Super Cache, or other caching plugins?)

If word gets out on one certain popular marketing forum, that The7 is compatible with DAP, then you will get many new customers. That’s what happened with the other theme I had mentioned above—there was a new forum post mentioning that theme worked with DAP, and then many replies and thousands of thread views and then bam! a huge number of people purchased that theme. Sweet incentive for The7 to test with DAP.

Dream-Theme

Hello,
1. No, not yet.

2. Yes. Compatible with both. Note that in latest version of theme DB caching option in W3 is causing error, but well release a fix for it in couple of days.

Hi there!

Just purchased your theme and want to install it on a localhost for my first view into the theme. Therefore I try to upload the zip folder: dt-the7_v.3.2.1.

Following error message appears: ” Warning: POST Content-Length of 17533567 bytes exceeds the limit of 8388608 bytes in Unknown on line 0

Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again. “

I use WP 3.8.1 on the localhost. Even with deactivated plugins error massage appears.

Pls advise.

BR, Petra

Hello again!

SOLVED :-) ...

I was too fast… better to read your user guide first ;-)

I just drag and drop your folder in my wp-content/themes folder. Works fine.

My first impression of the7: GREAT!

One plugin question:

The website which I want to renew with your theme is www.business-personalities.com. We’re currently working for the social shares with WP Socializer and have on some pages quite a lot of shares. 1.) Can I use this plugin with your theme? 2.) When I upload all to the server, will the posts and pages still have all the shares?? I hope and think so, because the links remain the same like before. Am I right??

Would be super to get an answer for this…

Thanks so much for your great, user friendly work!

BR, Petra

Dream-Theme

Hi,
1) We were not testing The7 with that plugin, but I cannot see any single reason why it can be incompatible.

2) Not sure how that plugin works. But I doubt it stores absolute paths of posts/pages/etc. Most probably it generates them automatically so there must be no issue when transferring site to destination server.

redaktionbp

Thanks a lot for your reply! :-)

This guy from WP Socializer is not answering :-( ... today I wrote in the support the question “what do I have to do to get a reply??”

Not comparable with your super support!

Hi! We’re looking for a simple but vissually atractive site for psychology services.

Sections +Home +What we do (mission, vission, services, may be included in “home”) +Our team +Blog +Contact

Do you think “The7” would satisfy these requirements?

We’ve tested the online demo and we liked, but we’d need to see real life examples, in order to appreciate real theme’s flexibility capacities.

Thanks in advance!

Dream-Theme

Hello,
Yes, The7 will suit you perfectly.

Regarding ready made sites on The7. We’re not tracking sites that uses The7 in respect for privacy of our buyers. Thank you so much for understanding!

Ajax filters for blogs???? When???? Thanks

Dream-Theme

Sorry, but I have to admit that this comment of yours does not look very polite..

Please search other comments. This question was answered many times before. Thanks you.

Default-user

sorry for that… i didn’t intend any disrespect

Dream-Theme

It’s OK :)

Yes this feature is coming somewhere in March (probably beginning of March).

Hello,

How can I change the default sidebar type? I see the option to change it one by one… but I have more than 1000 subpages and I need a bulk system.

Thanks!

Default-user

hi! I have read the documentation files and I’m not able to identify where it is specified. Can you help me, please? Thanks for all,

Default-user

Hi! I have found it in an old comment. Done! The last question about this issue: How can I change the sidebar position for the “forum” pages? Are there any kind of css class to change it? Thanks again

Dream-Theme

Hi,
It only can be done in code: you need to create dedicated template for bbPress. Sorry, this in not very convenient, but bbpress is not yet supported in The7 officially :(

Hi! Another “pre-sale” question. My intention is to buy this theme, build my website with a free domain/hosting, and once ready upload it to my definitive domain/hosting. Is this possible? Thanks in advance!

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Yes.

All I can say is Wow! After years of building sites by hand I thought I would try out a Wordpress theme. So glad I choose yours, it looks fantastic and has been very easy to adapt to my requirements.

It works perfectly on every device which I have tested physically and also via browserstack.

Anyone worried about the themes speed, should not be. Put it on a decent server close to your audience and it will fly, my tests show 1.4 second loading times thats without any Cache plug ins.

The support has been very fast and professional.

As a long time user of Envato (they was based in a garage, when I joined) I can easily say this is my favourite product I have ever purchased!

Dream-Theme

Hello,
Wow! Thank you very much for feedback!

BTW, enabling caching can cut that loading time on another 500-600ms :D

Hi, thank you for a great theme! I have a DT-Contact form question. It has the perfect styling which takes up little space exactly as what I would like to have. I was wondering if it would be possible to add a required Last Name field and one more field for my purposes would be “Program of Interest”. At the moment to achieve it I’m using Contact Form 7 plugin but is not nearly as beautiful as the DT-Contact form design. Hope there is a solution. Thanks for your help!

Dream-Theme

Hi,
I’m afraid our simple contact form is very-very basic and you cannot change anything in it without digging into deep into code :( That’s why we recommend using Contact Form 7.

Urgent problem

Seems to be a problem with revslider and Themepunch. It’s being reported as an attack site and I can no longer get into the admin part of my website

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Can you please be more specific what the issue is??

In blog list template I want to show a list with blogposts with small images (100×100px) When I choose resize images and set the values Images proportions: 100 width × 100 height I get the same images all the time, nothing is changing. How can I make the images in blog list template smaller? (about 100×100 pixels)? And the same question for grid layout (images for example 100×100 px of 150×150px)

Dream-Theme

Hello,
Those sizes are pre-defined and cannot be changed without digging deep into theme code :( Sorry.

Hello I am experiencing fatal issue with this theme. Default style.css file has comments that reads out dream them name and information. i want to delete this. As soon as you do this, theme options doesn’t save anything. This issue is specific with your theme. It looks like you have hard coded ” Dream-Theme” information. I have purchased various other themes and you are able to remove the comments easily without any issue. This is very annoying that you explicitly want ” dream theme ” information there. How can we get rid of this? Please assist! Thank You

Dream-Theme

Hello,
You’re changing theme name > options plugin (integrated to The7) thinks that it’s a new theme > and wipes all options. This is normal options behavior and we’re not going to alter it.

In next update (coming really soon) se have options export/import feature – it will help you transferring option between your different instance of The7 (or whatever you rename it) seamlessly.

Hello!

Concerning the sidebar area / widgets:

1.) I don’t find where I can make the sidebar a bit wider. Like in your demo… you have the “page layout – wide sidebar” – that’s how I like it. Can I adjust it somewhere or do I need custom CSS therefore?

2.) Can I have a bit distance/distance between the single widgets in the sidebar? I mean like I have it here: http://business-personalities.com/dr-rer-nat-susanne-finzel/

Thanks in advance!

BR, Petra :-)

redaktionbp

Hey :-) cool! I mean a space vertical. In The7 you have the sidebar “in one line”, directly connected – I mean something like the sidebar here: http://business-personalities.com/dr-rer-nat-susanne-finzel/ Thanks a lot in advance! :-)

Dream-Theme

Uh, you mean you want boxes around each widget? I’m afraid I’ll not be able to help here: it requires considerable amount of coding :( I’m awfully sorry.

redaktionbp

If we can manage just a vertical space would also be great. Don’t need it absolute 1:1. Would be great if you can give what you can do :-) Thanks!!!

Font Colours – in previous posts it say you can alter the font colour in Theme/Options/Fonts but I can’t see any font color control there

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Color of text can be set in corresponding theme options areas. E.g. If you want to set color of text in content area, you need to navigate to “WP-admin > Theme Options > Content Area” and locate a “Text” block there. Same with Stripes, Fotter, etc.
