Thought there was going to be the use of a mega menu with next update, but don’t see it on the notes. Is this something that you will be adding still?

Dream-Theme

Hi,
It was “one of nearest updates”, I believe :). At this moment we’re focused on some performance optimization and new lightbox software. Megamunu is next in our pipeline.

As to the Theme update option,- tried to put everything, my TF login name, my licensee name, my Item purchase code, also my password for the TF – still doesn’t work – Error 403 – Username and/or API Key invalid… What is the trick? Seems like TF username is the same to TF login name, but what about API key?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

You can generate API key in “Settings > API Keys” of your ThemeForest account. Your individual link to that page is http://themeforest.net/user/DimaP/api_keys/edit

I’ll add KB article on autoupdates as soon as we will release newer version of theme.

hi, this is a great theme here. However, I also was waiting for the megamenu (like many others it seems, seeing the comments). will this be added? regards

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Yes. We re now working hard on v.1.5 (which is about some optimization). We expect to introduce mega menu in v.1.6. Meanwhile you can use UberMenu plugin.

Thank you for the awesome product.

How can I add the social media icons to my footer widget the way you have it in the demo?

pilichev
I see the demo contact page is using the code: [dt_social_icons animation="left"][dt_social_icon target_blank="true" icon="facebook" link="https://www.facebook.com/WordPress.Premium.Theme" /][dt_social_icon target_blank="true" icon="twitter" link="https://twitter.com/premium_theme" /][dt_social_icon target_blank="true" icon="google" link="https://plus.google.com/?" /][dt_social_icon target_blank="true" icon="dribbble" link="http://dribbble.com/dream-theme" /][dt_social_icon target_blank="true" icon="forrst" link="http://forrst.com/posts" /][dt_social_icon target_blank="true" icon="pinterest" link="http://pinterest.com/dreamtheme/" /][dt_social_icon target_blank="true" icon="instagram" link="http://instagram.com/dream_theme_photo" /][/dt_social_icons]

What I was wondering if there is a widget to add the social media instead of hardcoding each link. This way when the user checks or uncheck a social site in the Site’s Settings the new icon would automatically be added/removed in ALL of the places thw widget used – such as the header, footer, sidebar, content area etc.

Dream-Theme

Hi,
There’s a widget called “DT-Contact Info”. It contains all social links available in theme. Please check – maybe it will suit your needs. Thanks!

How to i upload the theme to Wordpress (i am hosted with blue host). I downloaded the large zip file to my computer and unarchived it. Now what?

Dream-Theme

Full demo is also available. (You can learn details about it here: http://support.dream-theme.com/knowledgebase/full-demo/ )

Hello! Is there a way to build a page, but make it accessible only through a link in a post, and make it invisible on the header menu? Thanks

Equinvictus

Forget it, you can do this using custom menus… ;)

Newbie question of the day.. someone had asked about sizing the page width smaller, the reply was yes you can but with no explanation? Now I need to do that as well.. suggestions?

I’m a little confused as well, I want to change the menu colours on the buttons and customize them, I had assumed this would be in the style sheets.. but no..sigh.. suggestions..? lol

And last but not least.. cant seem to get rid of this comment section on my homepage?

Default-user

OK.. the comments? dumbass question.. should have read through the manual.. that ones solved.. lol

Dream-Theme

Hi,

1. Site width. Already working on article; will provide a link shortly.

2. Color of buttons in main menu is “Accent Color”. You can change it via “WP-admin > Theme Options > General”

3. Comments. Please refer to this article in user guide: http://guide.dream-theme.com/gen2/user-guide/general-guidelines/disable-comments/

Hi great theme so far its been great to work with it… just one question. once the “fancy header” its enabled inside a page the background of the website becomes 100% opaque, the value in the opacity gets overruled. it’s there a way to fix this? Thanks!

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Can you, please, provide a link to a faulty page so I can check it? Thanks!

I have the demo installed and am trying to alter the menu, but although one shows up on the pages, inside Wordpress, there are no menus…HELP!

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Menus can be edited via “WP-admin > Appearance > Menus”.

Make sure that you’ve assigned required menu to proper menu instance.

If no menus created – theme will display list of your pages instead.

More details on menus can be found on this page of user guide: http://guide.dream-theme.com/gen2/user-guide/general-guidelines/menus/

could you please point me to the installation directions of the child theme?

Dream-Theme

Hi

First you need to install The7 itself. After that you can install and activate child theme as any other themes.

Why do you want to install it, can I ask? (Maybe, I’ll be able to give you more relevant advice). Thanks!

Default-user

In the case that I have have to code anything that I do not want to lose in future updates. In the situation of a future update wp or the7, would design changes keep if I only make changes using your theme, including custom css box (non-child theme)?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

If you’re going to make only minor CSS tweaks, keeping them in “Custom CSS” field will be the best solution.

If you need more significant changes – child theme will do the job.

The only thing you need to keep in mind is that WordPress considers The7 and Child theme as two different themes with THEIR OWN OPTIONS. So if you make changes in, say, in Custom CSS field of original The7 – it will net be transferred to child theme.

If you suspect that you may need child them in the near future – use it at once.

Hope, this was helpful.

Royalslider change Font-Size

Can .rsTitle changed in the theme-options or do I have to une the CSS-File for this? Thanks for this great Theme – I am impressed!
Dream-Theme

Hi,
Thanks!

The bast way to do it, is to paste required bit of CSS code to your “Custom CSS” field via “Wp-admin > Theme Options > General”.

If you tell me which instance of Royal Slider exactly you need to influence – I’ll be able to provide you proper CSS selector. Thanks!

Hi

Love the theme looks awesome. I have purchased several wp themes with simple slider solutions. Ie easy slider. I have also purchased pro slider can I intergrate this into your theme.

Thank you.

Zed

Dream-Theme

Hi,
Thanks!

The7 is packed with as much sliders as customers normally need :)

Regarding those plugins. Theme was not tested with them. But I assume you’ll need to tweak their styling to fit theme perfectly.

Hi, I saw you wrote “focused on new lightbox software” Thanks for that. Please – Full screen for both PC and mobile + and mobile device friendly ( add swipe option – finger swipe on mobile devices)

And if you can add FULLSCREEN SLIDESHOW front( home ) page. will be nice to have for photography use ( like me )

Thank you

Dream-Theme

Hi,

> Full screen for PC

It’s coming but not in next update.

> add swipe option – finger swipe on mobile devices

This is not likely, since it will make pinch to zoom and regular left/right panning unusable… Nevertheless whole image will be clickable “to next”.

> And if you can add FULLSCREEN SLIDESHOW

This is also in remote pipeline. But I can assure you that [among other customers] we’re focused on photographer and their needs. Expect more cool stuff in future updates ;)

Hello! I’ve noticed that the pie chart isn’t working properly, it’s not assuming the integer value, if I place pie value as 100, and integer value as 90, the circle completes all the 100 points, and not 90. Any ideas?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

There are actually 2 fields: one responsible for circle fill (pie value); second – for number to display (pie label value).

+ at this moment we’re changing pie chart to fit theme better.

Hi, It seems that a blog list in a page (the HP for example) shows the firt 50 words. Due to this, the height of each is not the same

Is it possible to show the first 160 character instead of words ? Thanks !
