This theme, is without doubt, one of, if not THE best theme I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The support/updates are excellent.

So easy to use and work with. If you are ‘thinking’ of purchasing this theme, think no more and hit the buy button!.

After my previous purchase from another developer turned into a lemon, this theme and the development team have restored my faith.

Thank You guys!

My two year search is over! I have tried over 30 themes from Themeforest, many of them occupying the top 10, but The7 is by far the best I have used. That’s not to say the other themes are poor, it’s just that The7 is the fastest, easiest to make a site look professional (I have no idea about coding html etc) and the demo material is second to none. I can’t believe these guys charge $55; well it’s definitely the best $55 dollars I’ve ever spent on a product. Thank you so much Dream-Theme; this site so much deserves to be number 1.

Is it possible to edit the inner pages (The Title and Breadcrumbs) and add a background image so they are not all a solid color?

First of all this theme is AMAZING!! quick question, when I have a menu item that has dropdowns (sub menu items) the main menu item is no longer a clickable link to a page, how can I make it clickable to a page again?

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Thanks!

There’s an option for that in “WP-admin > Theme Options > Headers” it’s called “make parent menu items clickable”.

Hi! You have a template “The7” in the HTML version?

Wow.. had my share of bad themes.. but I just spent 6 hrs researching this one and I love what I see.. only two questions I could not find an answer to, will the Foxyshop plugin work with this? And… can I set the background colour to the text in spots to be transparent?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Unfortunately we have not tested theme with Foxyshop plugin. Theme is compatible with WooCommerce – one of the most popular e-commerce plugins for WordPress. (Though as I understood you prefer the third party hosted solution…)

Backgrounds can be set to transparent in most cases. But to avoid misunderstanding, can you, please, describe in details which background(s) exactly are we talking about? Thanks!

still figuring out what controls what.. it seems to be working for me, except that where the shadow should go for the slider I instead get a repeat of the background.. odd, but probably something I’ve set wrong myself…

Hello, this is an excellent theme, but still i have a doubt. Do this theme loads pages dynamically via ajax?

Dream-Theme

Hi,
At this moment, no.

We’re definitely planning to add ajax to galleries, portfolio, etc. in NEAREST future.

BUT adding ajax to pages… not sure it’s a good idea – it will cause numerous incompatibilities with third party plugins. So we have no exact strategic decision about it yet.

Hello is any way to have a form for costumers add their own testimonials?

Thanks for the theme is great!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

You can create a custom form via “Contact Form 7” plugin to gather feedback. But you’ll need to publish them manually.

Nevertheless, the idea of “automatically adding” testimonials is kinda cool – I’ll definitely will discuss it with colleagues!

Default-user

Thanks for answer fixed with gravity form. So they can write their name, email, testimonial and upload a picture if he wanted to appear on the website, but of course you need to review and add manually to Testimonials page :)

Dream-Theme

Yes, All that you’ve mentioned is possible with using Contact Form 7 plugin. It is 100% free and theme will propose you to install it automatically.

@rickoline no it doesn not load dynamically via ajax. It just looks like this because its animated. You can turn of the animation style with ease. I like it though!

Bread crumps this theme not indexed by google search engine..

Dream-Theme

Hi,

First of all note that we’re tweaking theme demo CONSTANTLY so google may lag with correct page indexing a bit.

Second, what the “issues” exactly is? If it is really a problem – we’ll fix it ASAP. Thank you for cooperation!

Yeah! I am part of this game now. The dummy has yet no sidemenus defined. Is this right? I did not find the autoplay-video-background as well. Can you provide me this additional dummy content seen in your preview?

Can I ajust max-width using Custom CSS or is it defined in the theme options: #page.boxed {max-width: 1380px;}

Dream-Theme

Hey,

I think you may want to take a look at this article in our KB: http://support.dream-theme.com/knowledgebase/full-demo/ ;)

(Note that Layer and Revolution sliders must be imported separately. You’ll find all required files in the theme package in “Dummy” folder).

Hi, Can I install this theme as the way it shows and edited after all?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Are we talking about “big” theme demo that you see on ThemeForest? If “yes”, may want to take a look at this article in our KB: http://support.dream-theme.com/knowledgebase/full-demo/ Thanks!

.01 Retina images -> If I forgot to upload an retina-image is it gonna use the regular image instead?

.02 Benefits & Visual Composer -> VComposer says: Your page layout was created with previous Visual Composer version. Convert to new version.

After doing this I can edit but the Button displays now way too far down. Can you update this or give advice?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

1. Yes. If there’s no retina image, theme will fall back to regular sized one.

2. Some pages were created using “old-school” text shortcodes. Since theme supports both – we need to keep them in dummy/demo content. They cannot be converter to Visual Composer format automatically.

Hi! I think this theme is one of the best theme. and I really thank you for your kind and quick answer. But, I have another problem now. If I use fancy head or slide show, when page refresh, sometimes BG images flash. I mean, blue BG images appear and disappear very quickly. Is there any method to fix it? this is my site. you can find my problem, if you refresh page. http://whyblog.ezion.co.kr/?page_id=12746

thanks in advance.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

There’s a small trick with that background. To get rid of it, you need to navigate to “WP-admin > Theme Options > General”; find the box called “Layout”; switch to “boxed” – background settings will appear; remove annoying background, switch back to wide layout and save options.

Hello,

Where I can see detail changelog for 1.4 version update in terms of single files. I mean on files that you changed. I just want to update that files instead of whole theme directory.

Thanks! Great theme!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

I’m afraid we’re making changes in to many files so it can be logged. The easiest way to track file-by-file changes is to use a diff tool.

Though, I strongly recommend you to use Child Theme instead. This is the safest way to make changes to theme. Especially regarding the fact that we’ve introduced the theme auto update option in v.1.4.

Great theme. One question, if I want to color the background of a content box or add a colored border or padding to a content box…is there an area where I can do this with say a color picker or is it something where I will need to do some CSS coding. For example, I’d like to do a teal content boxes with white border frames like the “VISIT THE BLOG” box in this website landing page: http://statement.sitehousedesigns.com/ As a matter of fact that sample has other content box color combinations. Is there a place in your theme where I could make these without getting into CSS coding? Thanks!

Dream-Theme

Hello,
I’m afraid it WILL require CSS coding :( Though theme has “Custom CSS” field to make it a bit more convenient.

I wonder if there’s a way to customize the slideshow. 1 slideshow ½ image and ½ text infos. Both sliding to the left at the same time like one single image. But the think is, instead shrink all the slideshow in responsive mode, show ½ slide above the other with a background picture. I send you a picture by mail to explain more in details. Thanks,

Dream-Theme

Hi,

You can make almost any slideshow you can imagine with Slider Revolution or Layer Slider! (Including what you’ve described.)

I strongly recommend you to invest some time into it! My subjective recommendation is Layer Slider: it’s more powerful and intuitive.

Hello :)

I have y few questions.. I have problems with the Layout Constructor. Sometimes I build a new layout and I fill it up with contents. And then the Layout Builder crashes, and does not load the contents anymore. So I always have to backup my pages, and if this happens I have to work with an older version of the page. Maybe you could help me out.. ?

And can you tell me how I can update my theme properly when the official the7 Theme updates are published? I always exchange my old theme with the new via FTP or is there a mother possible way to do that?

Can you also tell me how I can activate the SHOP ?

Thanks in Advance!!

Dream-Theme

Hi,

> Layout Builder crashes

This happened sometimes in older version of theme. Since 1.1 it must be more stable. So we need to take a look at your pages and have step-by-step guide to reproduce the issue. Please submit a ticket to our help-desk: http://support.dream-theme.com

> how I can update my theme properl

The7 v.1.3 has auto update option build in. It’s in the “WP-admin > Theme Options > Theme updates”. You’ll need to paste your user name and API key there. As soon as newer version of theme is available – I’ll post a screencast about it.

> Can you also tell me how I can activate the SHOP ?

Please install a plugin called “WooCommerce”. It’s absolutely free.

Hi there,

I love the look of this and I’d like to purchase it but there are issues with the main menu that I find really offputting.

1. Main menu speed – I find very slow. It takes a full second hovering on each menu item for the drop down to appear. And then another second for a third level drop down to appear. This means at least 2 seconds to be able to see a third level page in the drop down menu. This affects the user experience and makes it a real drag to navigate through. The issue is the delay before the white drop down element appears. Can anything be done to speed this up?

2. No mouse hand on hover – For those menu items with a drop down element there is no hand icon appearing on hover like normal links. This is also offputting as this is such a common user experience cue to notify that the item is a link. Can this be changed to display a mouse hand on hover?

I also have some general questions:

3. This theme features rounded corners on items throughout. Is there an option to change this style to straight edges?

4. I love the full width portfolio carousel shortcode with the mouse drag functionality. Is this possible also with blog posts? I can’t see it on the demo but this would really be a helpful item to have the same functionality with blog posts of a particular category.

5. Is it possible to use this theme for a one page site with smooth scrolling to each section from the main menu?

Thanks!

Dream-Theme

Hello,

1. Yes, there are 2 variables that controls those timings.

2. Yes, I’ll provide you bit of CSS for it. But please note that if menu item only contains drop down menu and is not clickable – it’s actually a GOOD practice to have regular mouse cursor.

3. Yes, There’s an option for that.

4. [Though most probably answer you your question is “yes”,] I’m not sure which slideshow exactly are we talking about. Can you please be more specific? Thanks!

5. We are working on this feature. It will be available in one of nearest updates.

Default-user

Thanks, I’m happy to to hear that! Will be buying soon.

4) relates to the ‘Featured portfolio projects’ full width image carousel on your demo homepage. The question is – can I display a category of blog posts in the same kind of image carousel? For eg. there is a category of blog posts called ‘Events’. And when a new post is marked with this category it will automatically display in this carousel shortcode on the homepage.

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Unfortunately at this moment you cannot display blog posts that way. BUT we’re planning to add it in one of nearest updates. Thanks!

Hi! Only one question (sorry foy me english). I want to know if it is possible to configure the HOME with the header like this: http://the7.dream-demo.com/slideshows/revolution-slider/revolution-animated-header/

I understand that this is the “revolution animated header”, but, can I use this header in the home page?

Thanks!

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Yes. You can set any page to be a homepage via “WP-admin > Settings > Reading”.
