Hello, This theme can not show well with IE 8 , when hover portfolio items it will be black. I think it is more beautiful when it transparent.

can it be fixed ?

Dream-Theme

hey,

That’s strange – we tested it in IE8 . Sure it is “gracefully degrading” since old IE is not support modern CSS3 properties. But in general it should work fine. Can you please post a link to a screenshot so I make sure that I understood you correctly?

Hello,

Here enclose an image to show you what I mean.

when it hover a portfolio it will be black. it is not beautiful.

and the font is not beauty too.

Dream-Theme

This is normal for old IE – it does not support “rgba” css property. BTW , you have not provide a screenshot of your javascript console – we cannot reproduce your issue with comments in IE8

Responsive? Seriously? Your theme is TWO AND A HALF MEGABYTES , makes 126 REQUESTS , and takes HALF A MINUTE to load.

Dream-Theme

Bro, do you at leas know what “responsive” is?

Dream-Theme

... 2.5 MB it is not theme – it’s images on theme demo. If you want to minimize traffic for mobile users, you should create a dedicated mobile version ANY responsive theme will help you here.

RWD means accessible for all devices. Your theme is clearly not suitable for a smartphone with a shitty 3G connection.

Dream-Theme

Sorry man, but you really do not know what rwd is. Try to google something like “why responsive design sucks”. Maybe then you will understand that responsive != mobile. And why dedicated mobile version/application is always better.

And show some respect to authors. Don’t like it – don’t buy it (btw, you have not bought on ThemeForest anything yet). I will not remove your comment only because other buyers may find it useful, but you should definitely learn how to communicate with people.

Excellent job on this! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. Super easy to use and offers a lot of options out of the box. Good luck with sales! :D

Just double checking as I will need to sell a few items on my site… so it’s compatible with Woocommerce? (my fav looking ecommerce plugin)?! GRT WORK !! Gorgeous on all levels (even mobile Amazing!)

Dream-Theme

Hi,

Yes, WooCommerce is supported. Sure, you may want to tweak couple of CSS styles to make it fir theme perfectly, but nothing serious.

DT,

I tried your demo on Opera and the slider buttons were on the far-right: http://i.imgur.com/JkxfF.png – I thought you’d like to know.

How do you cut the height on the header? I couldn’t find the element to change on Inspect Element.

Dream-Theme

Hi, that’s the element of design :)

Btw, the OnebyOne Slider doesn’t show (it’s working on other browsers, but doesn’t show) in Opera – but Nimble’s OnebyOne slider works in Opera.

Dream-Theme

thanks for report – we’ll check it!

(I’ve contacted you through your profile but that didn’t seem to work) :/ Great theme guys, just having a big problem: Images I upload to the site aren’t showing up, instead they show the broken link icon (a torn up sheet of paper).

What’s happening? It doesn’t make sense to me that hosting it locally would be the problem because I’ve done this with other sites as well and no problems… Please HELP !!!!

- Thanks

Love the looks of the theme and everything I am seeing about it. My main concern is the speed. There are a lot of css and js files that are very big with a total of 50 calls going to css and js. That is a lot when I’m used to seeing 10 at most.

Have you tested this theme with the WP Minify plugin to combine those files?

Dream-Theme

Hi,

As you see demo-panel is enabled on our theme demo. In order to make it work we’re not using any caching/minifying plugins. Moreover we need to keep those separate unminified files to let developers to customize theme to their needs.

Usually we recommend to use “w3 total cache”, but we’ll check the plugin that you pointed.

Default-user

Do you have an example of a site that is running this theme with W3TC without the demo-panel? I usually run W3TC on all my sites, so I’d love to see a live example with it installed.

I’m getting 5 sec render and 17 sec load time on the current demo and that is the only thing stopping me from using your theme for three projects I am starting next week.

Thanks!

Hi,

This error is caused by ”~” sign in your url. As soon as you get rid of it – all will work fine. Also you can google something like “timthumb virtual path issue” – solutions can be a bit different depending on your hosting configuration
