Can you tell me an example of webiste used for presenting a Mobile App with this Theme?

Hello,
I’m afraid we’re not tracking sites developed using The7.

Though I believe one of app developers made his site on The7. Please look through the comments. Thanks!

I’m fairly new to WP themes and have been pouring over this one to learn all the features and tricks. After a lot of frustration trying to build a visual page, I discovered your visual composer and content element menu and I’m seeing the power of this theme.

Anyway, I’m trying to duplicate two examples that you show on one of your demo pages: http://the7.dream-demo.com/

1. Under the “Clients and Testimonials” row, to the right there are 6 logo’s in a grid that I’d like to duplicate, along with the dividers. After doing a bunch of searching in your content element menu (the big one with 47 selections), I found one (logotypes) that looked like it might work, since it talked about dividers, but I can’t find where to reference any logos (and there isn’t any documentation on it that I could find). Can you tell me how to do that?

2. Same page but up a bit, just below the big slider you have 4 sections, each with a logo, some text and a cool link underneath that says, View details > Could you please tell me how that is done?

I don’t know if this is best addressed here or in the “ticket” section so I did both, sorry.

All in all, I’m liking this theme very much and I’m sure I will find more cool features that I can make use of, for example I want to learn how to use the layer slider.

I will say however that the on-line and off-line documentation seems to be too high level, at least for somebody who has not been around a lot of themes.

Thanks…

Hi,
You need to simply import the theme dummy content :) Please refer to section 5 of this article of theme User Guide: http://guide.dream-theme.com/gen2/user-guide/installation-and-basic-setup/ Thanks!

Thanks. I’m a little closer, but can’t figure out what file to select. I’m trying to “import” a demo or dummy content xml file, yet the import tool is asking me to select a file on my computer. In any event, there is no demo.xml or similar file that exists.

Never mind. I figured it out.

How do you create the side tabs shortcode?

Hi,
You can do it in Visual Composer. Element is called “tour”.

How come the Slider Revolution option for wordpress is not working? You can add a slider with the visual editor but if you try and add it via “wordpress screen options” it does not save and those options disappear upon saving…

Hi,
Unfortunately from your description I cannot say what the issue may be. 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!

Hi, Just wondering how to set a blog post as Featured and or Popular please? I know you can have the Recent Post show up as circles n the sidebar by using the widget but I need To show either Featured or Popular the same way in the side bar Thanks

I just went back and had a look at your demo and it has to be possible as its showing here Exactly what im after,, her you have recent posts showing, and the sidebar has Featured posts, they are displaying different,, this is what I want to do,,please how was it done on the demo? http://the7.dream-demo.com/home/landing/home-landing-3/

Ah, that’s an element from Visual Composer called “Mini blog”

Thank you so much, Perfect :)

Hi, I like to know if a calendar is comptatible with the site ? Thanks.

Hi,
You can try using the “All in One Calendar”

This a pre-purchase question. Yes or not comptatible ?

Sorry. It is technically compatible and will look more than adequate. But there’s no separate styling for this plugin so I’m not saying that it will look awesome.

Pre-purchase question:

Is this theme possible make each page with different custom menu?

Hi,
If you assign a “Microsite” page template to that page – yes.

Hi, really loving this theme except for the Boxed Layout option. My site is still showing as a full width / stretched layout even though I have selected the boxed layout. My screen resolution is 1280 by 1024. Is there another setting we must change to display the boxed layout?

Sorry, have not seen your last comment. Can you post a link to your site (enable that custom CSS) so I can take a look what causes a trouble. Thanks!

Hi, yes, we tried the solution on the link you mentioned above. I’ll email you the details for our site.

Hi,
Replied to your email.

Hi,

I am looking for a new template and your are on my shortlist. I like the style and all the functionality of your template, but trying the demo site causes some kind of “stumbling” by scrolling up and down the pages in my browser. I am using Safari on an iPad4. Other sites are scrolling much more smoothly. So my question is, is that a normal effect on tablets, cause they are not “powerfull” enough?

Kind regards, Rainer

Hi,
Is that issue happens an all The7 demo or only on some page? It must work overlay fine and smooth, but can stumble on pages with parallax and 3d slider (which is normal) for such effects-heavy pages.

Thank you so much for cooperation!

Yes, you are right – it does not happen on all pages and strangely, not all the time. Maybe it has got something to do with my connection.

Thanx!

It’s not about your internet connection. There’s a slight performance issue on parallax pages on tablets. It’s common for most themes. But we’re looking into it and you can expect improvements in “nearest” updates.

Hi,

the theme looks great. But I have one very important question. I would like to change my current theme for this The7. Is there any way how to turn off featured images globally (“Hide featured image on post page:”) instead of going through all my posts and turning them off individually? Some SQL command or something?

I hope you understand what I mean.

Thank you very much for your answer.

Regards

Michael

Hi,
No need to mess with MySQL. You can use this filter (add it to “functions.php”) to disable featured images for “standard” post format:

function turn_off_featured_images( $value, $object_id, $meta_key, $single ) {
 if ( '_dt_post_options_hide_thumbnail' ==  $meta_key ) {
  return true;
 }

 return $value;
}
add_filter( 'get_post_metadata', 'turn_off_featured_images', 10, 4 );

Amazing, thank you for your response !

no problem :)

Hi, I upgraded the Theme to version 3.0. Updated the plugins as well. But the revolution slider plugin keeps promoting that it is recommended to update to the latest version. Please advise if we just ignore the notice?

Hi,
There’s a small version issue in plugin itself. It does not influence how plugin works. So please ignore it till next update. Thanks!

Hi,

two things :

1)I have a suggestion.

It would be cool if you could do more homepages for blog (without the fake ads blocs)

2) I’m still waiting answer for ticket #6120 (pagination bug)

thanks

Regards

Hi,

1) Thanks. Will tell our designer about it ;)

2) Sorry for not updating ticket. Issue is much more complicated than we thought :( (We have never encountered it before.) Our programmer is still looking into it. As soon as we found the source of it – we’ll let you know.

Thanks for the reply

Pre-sales comment: Can you easily control the default font color and size across the site?

Hi,
Yes. You can do it via “WP-admin > Theme Options > Fonts”

Hi, all,

first of all I would like to say the theme is the best theme ever :) Thank you very muc!h And now… I ´m not able to send an email via contact form. After sending the URL is www.mysite.com/contact/# and the mail is not send. What am I doing wrong? Thank you for your support. J.

Hi,

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!

Are you sure you want to do this?

Please try again.

I’m trying to install The 7 theme and this is the message that I am getting. It goes through the entire process to 100% then goes to a page with this comment. Any advise would be appreciated.

Hi,
Most probably your hosting has a limit on file upload size (theme with plugins weights 17MB). You’ll need to install it via FTP or cPanel.

If you’re experiencing issues with it, please don’t hesitate to submit a request via our online help-desk: http://support.dream-theme.com – our support specialist will assist with it (it’s 100% free). Thanks!

Congratulation for this clean theme.

Questions regarding the one page template:

1- Is it posible to have a video cover lightbox image instead o the slider http://awesomescreenshot.com/0f120n2603

2- If yes, is it possible to have this cover image showing up inside the wordpress text editor ? Because I use a plugin that can transform any image inside the text editor into a video lightbos (jackbox)

3-If Not is it possible tu use your built in video lightbox, but without having the built in pplay icon showing up http://awesomescreenshot.com/01b20n6l03

Thanks !

Hi,
You can disable slideshow and put your “jackboxed” image in it’s place.

Very nice theme. Looking forward to purchase. Can contact forms be modified? Add new fields like file upload and other fields, Change the filed names etc, but keep the same look?

Thanks

Osee

Hi,
We recommend to use the Contact Form 7 (free) or Gravity Forms (premium) plugin to build any form you like.

Love the theme. It is original, well thought out and has got options I have not seen anywhere else. I really want to buy it and transfer my current website onto this theme. I like your justified image grid but I would like a few more options within it. Do you know if you can used the plugin Justified Image Grid in the theme. If so I would be buying it strait away. Thanks and thanks for all the hard work making a theme like this.

Hi,
We were not testing The7 with this plugin. BUT, technically they must be compatible (scripts that we are using are different and they must not conflict).

Thanks for the quick reply. I will buy the theme

Pre-purchase question:

I’m looking at several themes however many of them do not include social sharing icons for LinkedIn on individual posts (they have Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.) but not LinkedIn. I’m not entirely sure why but it seems to be a pattern. I really like your theme but need to have it be able to share to LinkedIn. Does your theme offer it? If it does not, can you use a social sharing plugin such as Shareaholic to add that functionality (the other theme I bought unbeknownst to me doesn’t allow plugins on individual posts and doesn’t allow LinkedIn so I am kind of screwed right now).

Hi,
Just checked – Shareaholic works fine (including individual posts).

Is there any chance you will be adding more social sharing icons(i.e. LinkedIn, Email, etc.)? I don’t really want to use a plugin if I don’t have to. So far I really like your theme and it has made it to the top 2, I just would like all my social media icons to match the theme and be able to be shared on all the sites I need as well.

Hello,
Yes. But I cannot guarantee it will be very soon. (We’re currently focused on huge improvements in portfolio / galleries).
