Hi,

Just a quick questions regarding the theme update:-

My client had purchased this theme few years back and now he is approaching us to update the theme to the latest version:

Current Version: Version 2.0.1 – Updated: 21.07.2013

Need to update with: Version 2.7.12 – Updated: 06.07.2015

Client haven’t made any changes in the theme files, website is running mostly with portfolio section and now he want to make it responsive and other features currently your theme offers.

So can I just update the theme folder with the current theme as it is ? or do I need to do something technical ??

Thanks in Advance

Hi,

Please refer to the update instructions in the theme’s documentation or in the forum, probably “Method 2” is best for your case: http://dreamthemedesign.com/u-design-support/discussion/13/how-do-i-update-the-theme

If your client has purchased the theme they should be able to register with the support forum and read the information there or post there.

I am an officer with a local nonprofit, the Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club. We have developed a system for identifying a particular category of wild mushrooms by applying various filters. You can find the Alpha version at this URL:

http://boletes.wpamushroomclub.org/WP/

We’ve gotten it to the point where we need to select a proper theme in order to move forward. I’m writing to you because your theme looks like a likely candidate but being sure of that is beyond me.

I’ve struggled a bit to come up with an analogy, but here is my best effort. It’s sort of like a specialized catalog for finding clothes that won’t be bought on-site. Imagine someone handed you an unlabeled shirt and then pointed you to a catalog that listed every piece of clothing manufactured in the world, along with where to buy it. How do you find your particular shirt? First you filter for color; then for short sleeves; then for buttons; then for type of collar; etc. Eventually you will limit the possibilities down to a manageable number that you can look up in more detail to identify the particular one you have. The actual buying would take place via a retailer, however, so all of those features (checkout system, inventory controls, tax calculations, shipping, etc.) are extraneous or even in-the-way. A museum catalog might be a closer analogy than a retail store, if you include all the search features.

The basic front page is a straightforward table showing all the mushrooms. That is all we need and really all we want. A grid of differently sized boxes would make this site harder to use, not easier. The boxes need to contain a thumbprint photo, a single latin name (Genus species), a single common name if there is one, and a very brief description of key features. It should be possible to fit that description into a 100-character box if that would help to keep the size under control.

In the ideal world the grid would be able to shrink down to just names if you have too many results (say more than 50), expand to smaller boxes with more data for a mid-level number of results (perhaps 10-50), and even larger boxes for when you get to a very limited number of possibilities. This is not essential, but would be cool as heck.

Another great feature would be a “manual elimination” filter. When working with a particular specimen the filter will very often produce a list of 20 possibilities, 15 of which I can eliminate through my own knowledge even though the features are close enough to pass through the general filters. Having a way to tell the system “never mind these ones” would be really nice.

One issue we’ve run into is the need to create and use a variety of custom fields. For example, many mushrooms have developed multiple genus and species names over the years. My database has columns for “Genus 1,” “Genus 2,” and “Genus 3” with similar columns for alternative species and common names. On the front page I want it to automatically use “Genus 1”, “Species 1” and “Common Name 1” (if there is a common name). That would be a lot more convenient than adding yet another column for “front page latin name”, which is essentially what we’ve had to do so far. In addition there are a variety of text fields that ought to remain separate on the database even though they might go together on the site. Creating custom product fields seems to be very complicated for some systems, but easy for others. The same goes for being able to customize what fields go onto the catalog page. We need one where both of those steps are easy.

In the same vein, I have all the data entered on a massive Excel file. We need to be able to import that data directly, or at least through some kind of proxy like a .csv file.

Next, we would like to be able to color code the boxes in some way to show edibility (avoid, iffy, good or choice). Our favorite idea is a colored frame around and/or text in each front-page box, but any obvious indicator such as a banner would do. If necessary I can work around this by giving each photo an appropriately colored frame, but that would be a pain.

The other key front-page feature is the filtering system. We have a large number of filters, most of which will need to be in an accordion collapse-or-expand structure. A few could be done with sliders, but the essential element is a user’s ability to cleanly and obviously apply and then remove the different filters. We also need to have the ability to adjust the order of those filters.

There will also be a main page for each individual mushroom that must be able to list all the information we have; extra photos; and an automatic list of how it is categorized for each filter. E.g.,

CAP COLOR. If you apply the following filters, this mushroom… • The primary cap color is White, Buff, or Light Gray IS FILTERED OUT • The primary cap color is Yellow to Orange CONTINUES TO BE LISTED • The primary cap color is Red, Pink, or Purple CONTINUES TO BE LISTED • The primary cap color is Some Shade of Brown CONTINUES TO BE LISTED • The primary cap color is Black, Dark Brown, or Dark Gray IS FILTERED OUT

In that example I’d want the “Filtered Out” ones to turn red while the others stay black, or some such. I can send you a sample MS Word page if it would help.

Technically the site will be hosted on WordPress, and the theme must be woocommerce compatible, must have a responsive layout that would allow us to use it on a mobile device, and must be simple enough for moderately-skilled amateurs to build the product without an outside consultant.

Triple bonus points get awarded to any theme that can spit out a mobile app people could use in the woods while out of contact with the Internet. I understand that this is little more than a fantasy at this point in time, but if it’s a feature that might get included in a future version that would be fantastic.

So… is your theme really the one that can do all that efficiently? I simply can’t tell from what I find at the store(s). FWIW, if this works out it could be a model for similar sites for everything from birdwatching to identifying trees or even other kinds of mushroom. That wouldn’t be a bad market to corner!

Many thanks in advance. Please feel MORE than free to contact me for additional detail.

Hi,

this sounds like a custom solution that will need specific to your project coding. I don’t think you’ll find a $50-60 theme to do all these things.

Regards

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

That isn’t a surprise. I don’t expect a perfect fit. My problem is to figure out what parts a given theme CAN do, and what parts it doesn’t. Getting a color-coded frame, e.g., seems like a stretch. But customizable product data fields, accordion-structured filters, and the ability to say what fields go into the front-page display grid? There ought to be a theme somewhere with all of those three, right?

So which elements from my wish list are standard in your theme, and which would require customizing?

P.S. My compliments on the product. I’ve scanned through a bunch and this looks like a particularly good one.

Thanks, I would say you need a plugin with powerful filtering system to allow you to do extensive sorting. Did you check if WooCommerce has anything close to that, I know they offer paid extensions to their main plugin? If you need to discuss this further feel free to email me. You can send me an email through my Profile page.

Hello,

I would like to know if user login/logout system is integrate in your template ?

I see what you mean. I have done that with one of my other themes, it’s not hard to do but in uDesign I had not added this particular feature to the menu, sorry.

Regards

Hi AndonDesign, in your template preview a shop link open a new tab. It’s possible to disable open in a new tab ?

Regards

that’s because I put together the shop demo site as a totally different WordPress instance so I wanted it to open in a new tab but you could have it open in the same, absolutely.

Hi Just updated Udesign to Version: 2.7.13 and now getting Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, class ‘Latest_Posts_Widget’ does not have a method ‘flush_widget_cache’ in /hermes/bosoraweb033/b1716/mysite/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 496

Please provide a fix or a solution

Another web designer purchased this theme 4 years ago…. I am now needing to perform the update. We don’t have the original license code. How do enter the forums without this code? Thanks, Eric

Hi,

Once the theme is purchased, future updates are free with that account, so unfortunately the way ThemeForest.net is setup only the owner of that account can have access to the theme that was originally purchased. Since you’re not in touch with the person that purchased the theme originally, it’s impossible to get updates for that license. In general, it’s best for the person that owns the website to have purchased their own license of the theme, that way they will be independent of anyone maintaining their website for future updates or access to support forum since the purchase code is required to register in the support forum.

I just bought this theme yesterday and regret purchasing it. The demo content creates all sorts of problems, not to mention a problem with the rev slider uploads as well as the page builder. Even more confusing though, is how you structure the homepage as a combination of content and widgets. I’ve sent in a support ticket, searched high and low on the discussions, and nothing addresses my issues.

Hi,

sorry for your troubles, I just checked and I responded to your post in the forum hours ago, asked you for necessary info to help you out and you never responded. I explained to you there what might be the cause and offered to assist. Please review the information in the forum and contact me, I’ve offered my email there as well.

Just an FYI for anyone reading this, I spoke too soon on my initial comment (I wish I could actually remove this thread). They stepped in and gave me tech support like nothing I’ve seen before with any other theme maker. These guys really support their product and their customers with great effort and integrity!!! I would definitely buy this theme again…
