it has been sometimes since the last update.
Is there anything new coming up for this theme?
Yes, there will be a non-major update within the next few weeks. There was no need of a follow up update after the last one, no major bugs or anything, so all good
P.S. For future reference, please post any support related questions to the theme’s support forum. You can subscribe to the Support Forum HERE
I haven’t bought this theme yet so I don’t have purchase code so didn’t subscribe for the forum please forgive me
I am working with my graphic designer on possibly using this them. I was looking at the example homepage using ‘cycle 3 slider’
Can you please let me know the dimensions I should make banners to fit that slider?
no worries, the forum is not intended for pre-sale questions, so you posted your question in the right place. For Cycle 3 the image dimension is FIXED to 940px by 430px (width x height). I have provided the PSD templates for your convenience to use to generate the slider images with the theme.
Thinking about purchasing this theme. Since it’s so popular, I have confidence (hopefully) that you won’t disappear and updates will continue. I wanted to know if it’s possible to have text as logo for the site? I had another pre-sales question, I noticed in the website examples most people have the same social sharing icons—are they not easily changed? Or are people just leaving them as is? Thanks.
thanks for your interest.
My commitment to this theme is long term, as you can see since the release I’ve been keeping it up to date with features and security updates.
For the logo, the text is already behind the logo so the search engines can find it, you could use Firebug and you’ll see it there, but for the actual logo you’ll have to use an image, which means that you can type your text if you wish to use text and save that text as an image, style it, color it, etc. If you need more info on this feel free to email me. You can send me an email through my Profile page.
For the social media icons, those are the ones I’ve provided with the theme, but you could use any set of icons, there is no limit.
A great theme with plenty of possabilities.
So, a question:
How will the new guidelines that Envato is proposing for all themes, new and old, effect this theme in regards to new updates and ongoing support for the theme as it is now?
I think it’s going to be a really smooth transition with my theme, most of the requirements are already met with the theme. And as always support is available if needed, however I will do my best to implement the missing requirements in such a way that minimum changes would be required on the user’s part.
This is an awesome theme especially since it’s now mobile responsive. Just a quick question. Is it possible to save the U-design Admin settings when using a child theme?
Thanks celticdancer, glad you like the theme!
To your question, whether you use a “child” theme or not the theme’s options are saved the same way, so no difference in that respect.
If you need more details on this please re-post your question to the theme’s support forum. You can subscribe to the Support Forum HERE
I need to be able to demo a ‘light’ and a ‘dark’ version to my client. Alas it doesn’t seem to save the font, colour and background…
if you need further clarification please post to the forum.
2. can i keep lock to the some of my pages where users can see those pages only when they registered and signed in the site
3. DO YOU DO CUSTOMIZATIONS TO THE SITE AS PER MY NEEDS I CAN PAY EXTRA ( NOT TO MUCH COZ IM DESIGNING A SITE FOR NGO )
Hi Pradeep Chandu,
thank you for considering the “U-Design” theme.
1 ) Yes, BuddyPress was recently updated I believe to be compatible with all themes, so looks like no theme needs to be compatible with BuddyPress any more, look: http://wpmu.org/buddypress-1-7-released-now-compatible-with-all-wordpress-themes/
2 ) That is actually not theme related but more of a WordPress access control thing. There are also third party Membership plugins that you could use for that sort of thing
3 ) I don’t personally do customizations or any freelance work, but I’ve setup a section in the theme’s support forum called “Hire a Freelancer” where you could post an ad and hire someone that knows my theme to give you a hand, usually a few people show interest.
Any plans on making this theme bbpress forum ready, or adding a bbpress skin that fits with u-design?
I don’t think I’ve been asked this before, I would normally prioritize new features based on user demand, given the low interest in that particular one I don’t think I’ll be looking into it for now, maybe at a later time.
Looking for a theme to start my blog, and I’m kind of worried about how difficult will be to installed to WP.
I must tell you, that I don’t know to much about WP.
went to you forum and read some stuff there, but cannot find anything about installation. You have some questions there but about installing sliders, layers, etc, but not about how tho install the whole thing.
There is a place where I can look and read more about this?
Thanks a lot
installing the theme is not difficult, if you have any issues or need some help with that just let us know in the support forum and we will help you out.

In the item description, it mentions that a user with no programming experience can setup a website with this template.
Does that mean that the website setup can be done through an backend admin panel?
yes, absolutely, you can build your site just be relying on the theme’s default features. Now, it is important to note that this is a WordPress theme and thus at least some basic knowledge of WordPress is required on your part. If you’re totally new to WordPress you could quickly catch up, there are ton of free video tutorials on the web on that. I have even setup a section in the theme’s support forum with a bunch of links to such resources to help you learn WordPress and some basic HTML/CSS should you want that.
If you’re thinking of buying the uDesign theme…DO IT. It’s phenomenal and the support is terrific as well. Even if you have limited wordpress experience (that’s me), you can figure it out. I mastered the basics over a long weekend….I can’t say enough about this theme. It’s night and day from the Child theme I started with. I saw the ratings and can’t believe they even have ONE poor rating. Obviously from someone who didn’t take the time to learn this.
Really, I love, love, love this theme. It’s Geek Heaven to me
Thanks Amy for your comment and feedback. Happy to hear you love the theme and support we provide Welcome to Geek Heaven
Hey i purchased your themes (on this account only purevision) I have several. Anyway i am trying to put just 1 image in “top are social media widget” but it is resizing it as it is a wide image. How can i make it display full image?
Thank you for choosing the “U-Design” theme!
Would you mind re-posting your question to the theme’s support forum.
nice and easy to use theme herewith my creation: http://123tlumacz.pl/
Thanks d4site for sharing your site, looks awesome, and thank you for your feedback, glad you like the theme!
Great theme! I do have some questions.
1. How could I increase the width of the “menu”, “the home page before content”, “home page column 1” so it matches the width of the slide? I know that I can decrease the slide’s width but I want the slide in 1024 rather than the default 960. See image below. I want to increase the width till the red rectangular. http://i43.tinypic.com/29wn04z.jpg
2. I have also purchased the Social Share Buttons plugin. I want to put the shortcode [dcwsb inline=”true”] in each of my post, page, posts page, archive pages, category pages. Where should I add the shortcode so I do not have to add it manually each time I want the plugin to appear? For example in order the plugin to appear in the posts I should add it to page-Blog.php? Where exactly?
Thank you in advance!
I just purchased this theme. I see function this theme is good but UI look not good. this is a good designer he have worked with me. he can help you this problem: https://www.facebook.com/nhatrangart/photos_albums
I just tried to upload the u-design theme and am not able to. I get the following message:
“The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.”
“Stylesheet is missing.”
Whenever you see that missing style sheet message it means you’re attempting to install the wrong file and WordPress doesn’t recognize it as a theme file. You were supposed to unzip the initial zip file you downloaded after purchase onto your hard drive and then inside you would find Documentation and another zip file called ‘u-design.zip’ which is the actual theme.
Please refer to the Documentation for installation instructions.
Here’s also a video on how to install ThemeForest themes:
Stylesheet Missing When Installing WordPress Theme
Hello, http://www.neographik.fr/ on the website I would like to translate the page title “home” with “accueil” (in frensh) I looked in the file .po in the console … Is it hard in the code of a page? Thank you – Laurent
Hello – Unable to connect to your board
I think is ok – Reset my password
Great, see you in the forums then
Any chance I can easily add a Horizontal contact form on the top right of the homepage somewhere?
yes, you can. You can use a plugin like “Contact Form 7” for instance to generate your form the way you’d like then use one of the theme’s Widget area which is in the top right corner to insert it there in a “Text” widget, you could do something like that.
Great. Have you tested it ? it wont mess up the theme code will it ? I had that issue once before on another theme.
no it shouldn’t mess it up
