Hi Guys,

The theme looks great but can a video be used in the home slider?

Thanks,

BonfireThemes

Hey mate, glad you like it :)

I’m afraid that slider doesn’t have video support, but you could always find a plugin that does and use that instead.

Cheers.

Default-user

Ok great, also can a slider be added into the main content pages similar to the home page?

BonfireThemes

The slider on the front page is single-instance, meaning only one slideshow can be created. But the other third-party plugin we recommend has unlimited instances and indeed, you can use it on posts. The demo site has an example here: http://bonfirethemes.com/_touch/2013/03/13/two-customized-slider-plugins/

But again, if for some reason you don’t like these slider plugins, you can always use another one :)

Default-user

Amazing can you send the link to the plugin that you suggest?

How do I set up the static front page to mobile visitors only? It is important to me T^T. Please help me!

I mean… To mobile visitors: front page = static page (using touch theme) To PC visitors: front page = recent posts (using another theme) (I show your theme to mobile visitors only by using ‘any mobile theme switcher plugin’)

BonfireThemes

Hey there.

WordPress isn’t really intended to function that way, though you can set up different static front pages for both themes if you make slight changes to both themes. I haven’t tried it myself and so can’t provide support for that, but I’ve been told on several occasions by buyers that the trick described here works beautifully: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/setting-different-static-home-pages-for-different-themes (maybe you can even use it to show a static front page for one theme only).

Hey there

I am using a theme switcher, to use this theme for my mobile display only, I was wondering how I would get the posts to only display my ‘featured’ image when scrolling through the posts and the video when they enter into an individual post?

If I post the video in the post it throws off the responsiveness of this theme, is there something I have to do to change this?

Thanks

Sean

BonfireThemes

Hey Sean.

Check the documentation under “How to: embed videos, maps etc.” There are a few ways you can make sure videos are responsive.

If you want only images and titles on the blog index regardless though, shoot me an email through my profile; it’s a quick change.

Cheers.

Have a question if i use nextgen gallery plugin it will show up the pictures and i will be able to slide pictures on mobile phone ?

BonfireThemes

Hey there. That’s up to nextgen gallery; if the plugin supports swiping, then it will work. You can easily test it by installing it on your current site and visiting it on your touch device.

Default-user

Well it not support swiping. I need to thing something out :) The theme is clean and nice :) Thx for hiper fast answer.

BonfireThemes

Yeah, a theme can’t transform a plugin’s functions I’m afraid. We do have PhotoSwipe included in Touch though, so if you want to switch galleries, that’s always an option.

Cheers, and thanks for the kind words :)

Default-user

If i turn off the functions in the nextgen so when i press on a thumb it will take me to image. There is an option to make custom rel like “rel=”prettyPhoto[ GALLERY_NAME ]” if i change it to rel the theme swiping it will work ?

BonfireThemes

If you can make it work on your current theme, then it will work with Touch as well. Swiping isn’t a theme feature, it’s a gallery feature.

Default-user

O ok so it will not work because i checked the n1surf.pl on my phone and gallery only opening in lightbox :(

BonfireThemes

Yeah, swiping is all up to the gallery software/plugin I’m afraid. There’s nothing a theme can do about that.

You can try this though: http://wordpress.org/plugins/photoswipe-for-nextgen-gallery/

It should turn your nextgen gallery into a touch-enabled one. And it can even only be active when viewed from a mobile screen apparently. I think this would work for your situation especially great.

Default-user

Yes i was trying that plugin but sometimes it getting stuck there are problems with zooming in hope they will fix the plugin so i will be able to get Your mobile theme :)

BonfireThemes

After zooming can you not just swipe left/right for the next image?

Default-user

Yes i can zoom but when i zoom and then i want to zoom out it get stuck. Sometimes picture go out of screen when you want to move it when zoomed in. It fix always when i slide left or right. Do You direct link to any theme so i can check gallery on my android. Maybe it’s not plugin fault but my phone lol.

Edit: ok checked it on http://bonfirethemes.com/_touch/ It happens the same

BonfireThemes

Ok. Just FYI, Nothing getting stuck on iPad (tested on 1st and 4th gen) nor Nexus 7 (though pinching appears to be disabled here).

Default-user

It only brake when You zoom in and out i can record it and send it to You so you will know what i am talking about. It’s working ok when You 2x tap the screen that zoom working good. Tell me if You want recording.

BonfireThemes

No that’s fine. Whatever is causing the issue on your device has to do with how compatible PhotoSwipe is with it. I’m afraid I can’t provide such needle-in-a-haystack support for a third-party product :)

Default-user

Ok thx for answers and helping with the link i will be back for the theme, if not for this web i will get it for another :)

Hey mate,

Really nice looking theme, I’m planning on using it for desktop rather than mobile for a splash/launch pages.

For that I have customization questions:

1) Can I remove the header title of the page so it just shows the menu (and how)?

2) How does one replace the menu option with social media icons and can you replace the search bar with an email subscribe form?

3) Where can I go to hide the name of the page (such as ‘Home’ on the homepage)?

4) I’m still a little lost as to how to edit the phone number and contact email address.

Cheers and thanks—hopefully those requests aren’t too over the top.

BonfireThemes

Hey there. Shoot me an email through my profile. A support forum this is not :)

corepath

Sure, will do!

BonfireThemes

Already shot a response to you.

corepath

Cheers, great support response time.

Do you support right to left css ? I mean do you attach extra css file for right to left reading? and one more thing as I have already published website with huge database do you show featured image automatically in the top of the article or not ?

KR, Mohammad Farouk

BonfireThemes

Hey there.

Aligning text to the right is a simple CSS change. Shoot me an email after making the purchase and I’ll gladly make this quick modification for you.

And yes, the images above the posts’ titles is the featured image. They will show up automatically.

Cheers.

Can we remove elements from the header like email icon or call button?

BonfireThemes

You can :) Instructions on how to remove these is actually included in the documentation. If you have any trouble though, you can always shoot me a quick email through my profile; I’m always happy to assist with a few small customizations like this.

Sorry for my many question but do you support showing categories or/and sub categories on Homepage only or not ?

BonfireThemes

Hey there.

This can be done. Another purchaser actually wanted the same thing recently, so I have the changes necessary ready to go. Just contact me through my profile after making the purchase and I’ll guide you through it :)

Cheers.

Hi -

Is it possible to add a logo to the header instead of Text?

BonfireThemes

Yep :) This is explained in the included documentation.

Fantastic Mobile Theme! It’s better than Karma. I love the simplicity. just a note,,iOS7 is displaying navigation icons larger than it should, like, really gigantic. Take a look at them.

BonfireThemes

I’m updating to iOS7 now and will comb over all my themes to make sure stuff displays right. Thanks for the heads up :)

BonfireThemes

Just a heads up; the update has gone live. Touch’s icons are all nice and normal sized again :)

Love the theme. Works great on my phone. Only question:

I am using this theme as a secondary on my site. I used Any Mobile to switch.

Is there a way to replace what shows on my phone page with something other than what shows on my site?

Hard to explain but I ask because of this reason. There are some shortcodes that work on my main theme but dont work with yours, and they show up as [whatever this shortcode is] on the mobile. I want to put custom pages on the mobile and I want those to be different from my desktop.

Hope you understood haha. Thanks for the theme though ;)

BonfireThemes

Hey mate, glad you like it :)

If your desktop theme’s shortcodes are integrated into the theme itself, then they won’t work elsewhere. Nothing I can do about that I’m afraid (that’s why our own shortcodes come in a plugin, to make sure they can be used across themes).

As for creating pages different from the desktop site, mobile themes are really intended to reflect the content of the desktop site. That said, you can always create a new set of pages and then link to them from a mobile-only menu (this is explained in the documentation). This way only mobile users can access these pages.

Cheers.

Default-user

I used http://wordpress.org/support/topic/setting-different-static-home-pages-for-different-themes as a way to fixing the issue, but then that messed up my deskop theme’s home page :/

I dunno, I just want a different static page on my mobile site that’s all. If you hear of anything, please message me back. Thanks though.

BonfireThemes

The static front page trick in that forum thread has always worked for the people I’ve suggested it to. So it’s odd that it didn’t work for you. Maybe try using only the part that goes into the secondary theme?

But, that’s just a quick suggestion; like I always tell everyone else, I’m afraid I can’t provide support for third-party code snippets and the like. If I ever encounter another way of doing it though, I’ll be sure to let you knnow.

Cheers.

Default-user

it’s weird. The Static page on my desktop becomes the mobile theme’s home page. Then, I cant put the static page back to the regular home theme.

I did change the page ID, do you know if there’s anything else I need to do on the script from the third party?

It just sucks cuz I paged $25 for this and it doesnt work :/

BonfireThemes

I haven’t tested that code myself, so I really can’t assist there I’m afraid.

But the theme works perfectly. You’re just trying to do something WordPress was never intended to do. Please don’t put that on the theme mate :)

BonfireThemes

A quick update. This was nagging me, so I went ahead and tested that code :) And works perfectly. You’re probably just not inserting it incorrectly somehow. Shoot me logins to your WordPress installation and I’ll have a look at how you went about adding it.

Cheers.

Just want to express my ‘love’ for this theme and the people behind it. The developer went out of his way to make sure this mobile theme worked with my existing desktop theme.

After providing him with my login credentials, he went in and spent a grueling 2 hours figuring out the problem, with constant contact over emails, and make sure I got what I wanted.

Nothing else to say except thank you so much. Keep it up! I cant express how grateful I am.

BonfireThemes

You’re quite welcome mate :)

Hello,

is it possible to replace a custom designed logo, instead of text “touch a theme …” at the top?

BonfireThemes

Hey there.

Yeah, this is totally possible. We even have an item in the documentation (included with the download) on how to do this.

Cheers mate.

How do you remove the “search” function below the header. Thanks!

BonfireThemes

Already replied to your email. No need to post everywhere mate :)

I’ve set up a sample page at the following address with my issues:

http://asgmobile.phancreative.com/content/

1) The column short code does not work. I need them to float side by side.

2) The toggles act strange. When I click Title 2, Title 1 opens

Please help.

BonfireThemes

Hey mate, thanks for the purchase.

You’ll find answers to both questions in the documentation that came with the theme (column shortcode can be customized, and you just need to add different IDs for the toggle boxes).

Also, send support requests to email please (via the contact form on our profile); we offer support via email.

Cheers.

Just wanted to come by and say this is BY FAR the BEST THEME SUPPORT I HAVE EVER RECEIVED.

Rain, the theme authour, was there to help me along every step of the way with my seemingly endless questions. He even went into my theme and made a bunch of edits that I was having a very hard time with completely free of charge.

Don’t even think about it – just buy this theme. The support alone makes it worth it.

BonfireThemes

Thanks for the kind words mate :) Much appreciated.

I love the Touch theme, I bought it but can’t seem to embed mobile YouTube videos onto my posts, I installed the shortcodes plugin the documentation plugin told me to do, but still no luck. Until then I have to have a thing that says “click here to view the video” so it doesn’t run across the screen on the mobile site. It’s fine on the desktop view.

site is www.smallcarweekly.com

BonfireThemes

Hey mate, thanks for the kind words. Always nice to hear :)

I just checked http://smallcarweekly.com/live-stream-service/ on a Windows, Apple as well as an Android device. In all cases, the videos load beautifully?

PS. No reason to send both an email and leave a comment. Since we offer support via email, just the email will do fine :)

Cheers.

How do I remove the header with logo from all pages even the home page? I have created a home page and set it as static, but it automatically uses a template with header and logo, how do I use a template without the header and logo for the homepage?

BonfireThemes

Hey there, thanks for the purchase.

That’s super easy. Shoot me an email through my profile (we offer support via email) and I’ll walk you through it.

I purchased and downloaded the theme. However, when I upload the zip to wordpress it gives me this error:

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
BonfireThemes

Hey there. Sounds like you’re trying to install the entire package, not the theme. Upload Touch.zip (you should be able to download it separately from under your account as well).

Hello. I have some error on IE8 after photoswipe plugin.

==========the erreor message.====== Message: Code.PhotoSwipe.createInstance: No images to passed. line: 133 text: 289 code: 0 URI: http://mydomain.com/wp-content/plugins/photoswipe/lib/photoswipe/code.photoswipe-3.0.4.min.js?ver=3.0.4

BonfireThemes

Hey there. Touch isn’t built with IE8 in mind, seeing as it’s a mobile theme. But try downloading the “WP Photoswipe” plugin from wordpress.org and installing that instead.

Cheers.
