Great theme. I have several questions though before I purchase.

1. Is there a full width (no sidebar) and a right sidebar page template?

2. Is there a feature to change the grey area below the navigation to a custom image header that can be changed from page to page?

3. I am interested in adding an email subscription area in the colored header right above the content of the pages (which has text on the left and a BUY IT NOW button on the right on the demo pages). Is it possible to customize what shows up on that header bar?

4. Is there any way to add mega menu like http://themeforest.net/item/nexon-business-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/5621507 at some point in the future

Would love to see your future themes, possibly with parallax features.

Great theme!

ImanGM

Hello Alex,

Thank you for your interest in Ventus! Here are the answers:

1. Yes, You can choose between Full Width, Right Sidebar and Left Sidebar on each page or post.

2. Yes, You can choose a background image for this area. Meanwhile you can use Revolution Slider, Nevo Slider, Responsive Slider, Flex Slider, Custom Image Header or a Header Text for each page or post separately in this area.

3. Currently you can choose between A button like what I’ve put in Demo Site or Search Box on this specific area. Newsletter is a good suggestion too. I’m not if you’ve bought Ventus right now or not but if you’ve bought it, please open a ticket in themique.ticksy.com and I’ll add this feature in next update.

4. Well actually I prefer to keep it simple right now, but, If you really need to use a Mega Menu, there are some great Mega Menu plugins in codecanyon.net (such as Ubermenu) which I would suggest you to get it and I believe it will work without any problems with Ventus. Even if you found any incompatibilities, just open a ticket and I’ll fix it for sure :)

Thanks again for your kind words. I’ll work on other themes in the future but honestly my first priority is Ventus right now and I’m trying to keep my clients all the way happy with Ventus :)

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions before purchasing Ventus, or if you’ve already bought it, just open a ticket and I’ll take care of it as well.

Cheers, Iman

Excellent. Thank you for the reply. Just purchased.

ImanGM

Thank you very much for choosing Ventus!

I wish you can install it without any problems but I’m waiting for your ticket regarding the newsletter option :)

Cheers, Iman

I want to share with others how I feel about this Ventus theme. This theme is clean, beautiful, easy to use, full of features and finally it has an outstanding support!

I never expected to get such an amazing super friendly, quick and responsible support for a $45 theme. I definately recommend Ventus to everyone. It worth to pay even $200 for such a professional support. Thank you Iman!

ImanGM

Hi Zara,

Thank you very much for your kind words! I’m really happy that you like Ventus this much. I’ll do my best to deserve these very very amazing words!

Thank you :)

Hi,

I really seriously consider to buy this theme but i have found a problem about responsive part of theme.

For not ipad but iphone or in my small screnn android phone slider disappears and and menu disappears or become an empty space on right side of LOGO?

Is it a familiar problem or is it just in demo?

Thanks,

ImanGM

Hello Yilmaz,

Just to update you on this, I’ve re-enabled slider on small screens :)

Cheers, Iman

Default-user

Thanks for quick and satisfied answers.

ImanGM

Dear Yilmaz,

You are welcome. Sorry but my main demo web hosting is down right now and I’ve switched to a backup server which is not up to date. I’m not sure if you saw the updates or not but if you didn’t see it, I should note that the current demo is not the up to dated version… I’ll switch back to the main server as soon as the hosting company fixes the issue.

Cheers, Iman

Hi, Looks like a nice, clean theme. I’m interested in purchasing but there seems to be an issue with the menu. I’ve tested on Chrome and Safari and the top nav menu disappears when you scroll down a page – particularly on the Contact page of the demo.

Also, I tested on Android browser and the homepage banner image doesn’t display.

If these things can be fixed, I’m going to purchase this theme for sure!

Thanks, Jon

ImanGM

Hi Jon,

Thank you for your interest in Ventus! About Slider: As I said in previous comment, I’ve removed it on small screens manually in demo and you can keep it on your website. By the way, I’ve re-enable it because I think when 2 persons in a row ask for something, maybe its better this way :)

About contact page menu, it’s not a Ventus problem. I don’t have this experience on my system but I’ve heard from some other users that on some graphic cards, chrome and safari do not render google map page correctly. (If you move your mouse over header, you can see that elements will appear again).

The only thing that I could do on this is to disable sticky menu on contact page to prevent menu to move over google map and make browser to do this on the page.

Anyway, I’ve change the header type in contact page and I think it should work properly on any devices right now. Would you please check it and let me know if it’s OK on your side too?

Thanks again. Please open a ticket if you already purchased Ventus and I’ll help you to make slider show on small screens just like the demo.

Cheers, Iman

Incredible support from imangm! Totally dedicated to his theme and responding lightning fast on every support ticket. I have never experienced this level of engagement from an author.

Last but not least it is a beautiful and highly flexible theme.

Chapeau imangm!

ImanGM

Dear Jan,

Thank you very much for your kind words :) I really appreciate it and I will do my best to deserve it!

Actually I believe that I’m one the luckiest authors in ThemeForest because of working with great people like you.

Thanks again! Iman

Hello,

Liked your theme and have interest but he has some system management galleries.

Cause I need a boot images, external to the default wordpress function with drag-and-drop for files, example: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/add-ons/gallery-field/ and images on the page with lightbox and description, this is your model this?

Thank you.

ImanGM

Hi Talegal,

Thank you for your interest in Ventus. I’m really sorry but I think I didn’t understand what you told me.

By the way, I’ve seen the page that you give me its URL and I can only guess what you need.

Do you need to create a page and be able to use WordPress built in gallery shortcode to show gallery in a slide show format with lightbox support?

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or comments. Even if you think that you can tell it better in your own language, do it and I’ll use Google Translator to understand it :)

Thanks, Iman

Hi,

Just got the theme and love it. One issue I have is that the slider on the homepage is not full width? How did you do this on the preview version? Thanks.

ImanGM

Dear Thomas,

Thank you again for purchasing Ventus. I’ve answered your ticket in http://themique.ticksy.com, But I’m writing the reply here for other users who may have the same problem.

Would you please follow these instructions:

  1. Edit your Home page and in “Page Attributes” section, Choose “Full Width Slider” as page “Template” (Screenshot Attached).
  2. Edit your Revolutions Slider and in “Slider Layout” select “Auto Responsive” and then increase the “Grid Height” from default “300” to something abit larger like “450” (Screenshot Attached).
  3. If you are using 1170px Layout Width for your site (You can set this in Theme Options), you should change the navigation horizontal offsets as well. Please in “Navigation” section, change “Left Arrow Horizontal Offset” and “Right Arrow Horizontal Offset” to 0px or even 60px. By default it’s “-60px” I think… (Screenshot attached).

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other problems with your Ventus. I’ll try to answer it very soon.

Cheers, Iman

I can not install the plugins. After clicking Install appears the message “Could not find the WordPress Content directory (wp-content)

ImanGM

Hello ioniscristina,

Thank you for buying Ventus. I’m not sure what the problem is but maybe you’ve renamed your wp-content directory to something else.

In this case you should also change this directory name inside your wp-config.php file in your WordPress root directory. (The following are just examples – you should use your own values)

define( 'WP_CONTENT_DIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/blog/wp-content' );

define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', 'http://example/blog/wp-content' );

define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/blog/wp-content/plugins' );

define( 'PLUGINDIR', dirname(__FILE__) . '/blog/wp-content/plugins' );

BUT, I would strongly recommend that you open a ticket in http://themique.ticksy.com and let me check it for you before changing your wp-config.php file.

This way I can help your better and faster.

Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions or comments.

Thanks Iman

Hi, I have decided to get this theme simply because it looks clean and seemingly it will fit what I am shooting for. All the great comments for excellent support is definitely a huge plus, thank you! I did have a couple of questions and I hope this helps all potential buyers as well. 1. Can you have Video’s from external sites like You Tube come up in the Portfolio Pages when clicked on the thumbnail image instead of just a picture that’s showing in demo now?

2. How is your documentation presented and how comprehensive is it?

3. last question is on the “Demo content is included. Import Demo data xml. And just edit pages easily.” So if I import this file then my page should look similar to demo and I just change images and text?

Thank you so much.

ImanGM

Hello again.

Sorry I’m a little late for a simple URL. Actually I’ve upgraded Ventus today and I had some more tickets to answer tonight.

Here is the online version of documentations:

http://cdn.themique.com/ventus/docs/

Of course after one month of supporting Ventus, I’ve created some FAQs with images and screenshots just like the docs which I’ll put them on a site in next few days. So there is more :)

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, comments or suggestions.

Hi, i just purchased the theme and i’m having problems with making the revolutionslider look like in the demo. When i set a background image for a slide, the image shows only in a portion of the slide and i can’t make it fullscreen. In the demo, you are using revslider or another one?

ImanGM

Hello Gutalax,

Thank you for purchasing Ventus! In demo I’m using RevSlider too but by default it’s not full width.

I’ve created a quick how to with screenshots to let you make this on your site. Would you please take a look at this article:

http://forums.themique.com/topic/how-to-full-width-slider-on-homepage/

and let me know if these instructions helped to make your slider like demo?

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, problems or suggestions.

Pre sales questions:

1) can you style the colour of the top (contact) bar and the footer? 2) is there child-theme support (i.e. how easy is it to integrate your future updates with my manual modifications?)

ImanGM

Hello wevdberg,

Thank you for your interest in Ventus! Top contact bar color will change with the header color. It has two built-in color setting (dark and vivid) but you can override it and set any desired color by 2 CSS lines. Footer color can be changed by CSS as well. It seems that you are a developer so you can change it by yourself but if you need any help with it, I would gladly help you on this.

About child theme, Ventus supports child themes and currently many of my clients are customizing it with child themes. Please read the following article. This is how you can create a child theme for Ventus:

http://forums.themique.com/topic/how-to-create-a-child-theme/

It’s easy :) Please let me know if you have any other questions or comments.

Cheers, Iman

ImanGM

Me again,

I’ve forgot to answer your last question. With each update provide a “change log” which will let you know which files are changed.

So you can easily update your customized files.

Cheers, Iman

WOW! Amazing theme, congratulations! One question before buying: when you say WPML compatible means also for RTL languages ?

Tkx in advance

ImanGM

Hello Weblatitude,

Thank you for your interest in Ventus! Yes, it will support RTL languages as well.

But please note that the layout for RTL language sites will not change. For example, logo is placed on the left side. On the RTL language sites, it will remain on the left side and if you want to move it to the right and replace it with Menu, you should customize it by CSS or making a child theme for RTL layout.

So, in short, It will support RTL languages but layout will not change in RTL languages.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or comments.

Cheers, Iman

Hi Iman,

I bought this premium theme expecting an accompanying PSD but can’t seem to find one in the package. Please could send one through? I urgently need to present a few options to client.

Cheers, Byron byron@flintntinder.co.za
ImanGM

Hello Byron,

Thank you for purchasing Ventus! Unfortunately PSD files are not included in Ventus WordPress version. This is not because I don’t want to give it to clients but because I’m not the copyright holder of its PSD version. I’m the author of the WordPress version.

The PSD version is available in the following link in the portfolio of its original designer:

http://themeforest.net/item/ventus-multi-purpose-psd-template/3628225

Please let me know if you have any other questions or comments.

Thank you again. Iman

We created interior pages with a right sidebar displaying a custom menu. However, the menu looks much different than the demo. The sidebar menu is must a bullet list. How do we get the tab looking menu on the side bar. that’s the menu with the dark grey rollover like this demo page? http://demo.themique.com/ventus/pages/about/

ImanGM

Hi There,

Thank you for purchasing Ventus! May I ask you which widget are you using in the right sidebar? I’m using “Custom Menu” widget in the page that you’ve mentioned above. Are you using the same widget?

May I ask you to open a ticket in http://themique.ticksy.com and let me see it on your website to find a fix for it?

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or comments.

Hi Iman,

Any idea why my sidebars don’t have a style anymore after the update to the latest version of the template?

ImanGM

Hi there,

May I ask you to open a ticket in http://themique.ticksy.com and let me check this on your website?

Also, I would recommend you to read the following post in our forum regarding upgrading your Ventus to latest version:

Http://forums.themique.com/topic/how-to-upgrade-ventus-and-shortcodes/

Did you upgrade your theme just like how I described in the above post?

Please update me on this and feel free to contact me if you have any other issues or questions.

ImanGM

Just another thing that I guess is causing this, should be cache issue (even browser cache or WordPress cache plugins). Please check these things as well :-)

Cheers, Iman

Hi, just bought your theme and am excited to get to work! One question though – I don’t appear to have any demo_content folder in my themeforest download?

ImanGM

Hello again,

Just to be more specific, in http://www.themeforest.net/downloads, you should click on download button and then choose “All files & documentation”. This will lead to download ventus-package.zip file. Then you should extract this file and find a file in ”/demo_content” named demo_content.xml.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or comments.

Cheers, Iman

Thanks Iman, I was having some internet connection issues and the folders were not donloading properly. All sorted now thank you but lots more questions forming as I progress!

I can’t get the top menu nav to show. I imported widgets_data.txt a number of times now, thinking that maybe is the issue, but not sure.

ImanGM

Hey Philldogger,

OK, I’m back to hotel and am available for help :)

First please go to “Theme Options > Header Settings” and in “Small Header on Scroll” choose “Disable”. This will disable auto shrink mode for menu when you want to shrink your menu permanently.

Then go to “Theme Options > Custom CSS” and paste the following code at the end of it:

.slider {
    margin-top: 85px !important;
}

.sf-menu > li > a {
    padding: 15px 15px 15px !important;
}

.navbar-inner {
    min-height: 50px !important;
    height: 50px !important;
}

.nav-active-arrow {
    top: 50px !important;
}

.brand img {
    margin-top: 10px !important;
    max-height: 30px !important;
}

If you have time for it, I recommend to remove !important from each line to check if it works fine without it and put it back if you have problem with it. It’s better to let your codes work without !important property.

Please let me know if this helped you.

And I would like to ask you to open ticket in http://themique.ticksy.com or http://forums.themique.com for further questions or problems because this way we can let other users to learn from other resolved issues or answered questions :)

Cheers, Iman

Default-user

thanks Iman, works great, however when removing !important it messes up on the buttons…fyi

ImanGM

Hey philldogger,

So, its OK, please keep the important property :-)

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or comments.

Cheers, Iman
