Impressive theme. 2 questions.

Can this theme work with Easy Digital Downloads?

Can I get rid of the parallax effect with the header image moving when you scroll the screen down?

Default-user

Great.

Can you tell me what widgets or short codes there are specifically for the shop? I can see the VLB but not how it helps build the shop screen?

GhostPool

The theme uses the shop widgets and shortcodes that come with WooCommerce – they are not unique to the theme. Here’s a list of the widgets http://docs.woothemes.com/document/woocommerce-widgets/ and shortcodes http://docs.woothemes.com/document/woocommerce-shortcodes/

By VLB are you referring to the Visual Composer? This allows you to insert the WooCommerce product shortcodes easily within columns.

Default-user

But I’m using this theme with Easy Digital Downloads, what about widgets/short codes for that? I’m not using this theme with WooCommerce.

Hi GhostPool, Beautiful new theme!

This may be a similar question to GameViewPoint’s question…

Can the parallax scrolling be turned off on the entire website? Thanks for your time.

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes. Parallax on all content elements is disabled by default and you can globally turn it off for all headers. :)

I am trying to install the Child theme for this theme – but I get an error that says “The parent theme could not be found. You will need to install the parent theme, plexus, before you can use this child theme.”

Not sure why it is looking for plexus – but it is.

Love the theme so far, but really want this functionality fixed.

GhostPool

Hi there,

Open your child theme style.css and replace plexus with vivacity.

For future issues and support questions please submit a ticket at http://ghostpool.ticksy.com as I do not offer support in the comments section which is really just for pre-sale questions. :)

Really nice theme, can the portfolio filters and page titles be turned off?

GhostPool

Yes absolutely. There’s options to do this. :)

Brilliant theme. One question, I am unable to get the visual composer to work on a clean WordPress install. None of the buttons do anything when I press them. Is there a way to fix this?

UPDATE: Nevermind! I noticed none of the javascript was functioning on that page, so I took a stab and installed WP Slider plugin and everything worked a charm. I would suggest making it a ‘Required’ plugin instead of ‘Recommended’, I avoided installing it because of this.

Thank you again!

GhostPool

Hey there,

I think you’re referring to the LayerSlider plugin. This is not required, however what you’ve pointed out is a theme bug which I have now fixed and will issue an update right away.

If you have any future issues or support questions please submit a ticket at http://ghostpool.ticksy.com where I handle all support. :)

Don’t forget to rate the 5 stars if you’re happy with it. Thanks.

Hello do you think i can easily create with your theme a platform where artists can create an account; upload their own work ( images, painting, etc ) and sell them ?

i’m new to wordpress sorry if this question look stupid ;)

GhostPool

Hi there,

With the BuddyPress plugin, which the theme fully supports, you can allow users to register and with the BuddyPress Activity Plus plugin you can also allow users to upload their own content (images, videos etc.).

If you also wish users to sell their content, you probably won’t find a theme that does this. You’ll need to look for a plugin that does this that you can use with a theme.

Great theme. Thank you. For some strange reason, i am not able to login to your support site. I need quick help with

a) reduce the font size for testimonial slider b) reduce the size of page title

Thank you

GhostPool

Hi there,

You can create a new account or login through Twitter or Facebook. Are all 3 methods not working? What error are you seeing when you try to register?

Default-user

Thank you for a quick response. I am able to reset my password to login to the support site. I will submit a ticket.

Hi there, Can you tell me if you can set a different picture background for each page header? Thanks, this theme looks perfect my next client’s project!

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes there’s an option to add a different background image for each page header or you can set one globally. :)

Hi i’m working (7 years envato member :) for a client that bought the template with you, can you tell me how to setup a one page menu?

Kind regards Matthijs

Sorry for the inconvenience but we do point this out in the help file, item page and your theme options page.

Hi, we are considering this theme for a multi-lingual site.Does this theme work well with the WPLM plug in for translations and how are multi lingual signs displayed? Thanks!

Default-user

Hi, Thanks for responding so quickly. Yes, it’s about the language switcher. We would like to see it above the main menu, as flags per language. Would that be possible?

Like on http://www.easy360.com/ and not like http://www.test-toolkit.nl/

GhostPool

WPML provide a PHP tag that you can insert into your PHP file to add the flags just like on easy360.com.

I can help you with adding this tag if you decide to purchase the theme. Just head over my support site at http://ghostpool.ticksy.com where I answer all support questions.

Default-user

Thanks, will do!

Does the theme include RTL support?

GhostPool

Hi there,

Unfortunately there’s no RTL support currently.

Quick pre-sale question: The live preview page does not respond to mouse wheel It does not scroll up or down Is there a reason for this? Will the pages I create also be non-responsive to mouse wheel?

GhostPool

Excellent, so what this means is if you just disable the smooth scrolling option your mouse wheel will work. :)

Default-user

Well ….. You would think so, but I disabled the smooth scrolling on my mouse (so now it makes the whole click thing every time I scroll) and it still doesn’t work on the themeforest version of your site. In any event, thank you for the link to your site where everything works. Now I can determine if this template will meet my needs Thank you :-)

GhostPool

I didn’t mean disable smooth scrolling on your mouse, the theme actually has a smooth scrolling option that can be disabled, which you can do if you decide to purchase the theme.

Good luck with searching for the right theme. :)

For some reason i cannot get the WYSIWYG editor to show up. I have other plugins that are dependent on the wysiwyg in order to interact with them.

Any ideas on how to make the WUSIWYG to appear?

Thanks! Andres M.

Hi Ghostpool. This theme looks great. Before I purchase I was just wondering if this theme allows buddypress users to upload blog content from the frontend (and not the wordpress admin).

This will be my first Buddypress deployment and both this and Plexus look ideal.

Many thanks,

GhostPool

Hi there,

Yes BuddyPress allows users to post status updates from the front end. You can also use the BuddyPress Activity Press plugin so users can upload images and videos from the front end also. I suggest trying out BuddyPress with the default Twenty Thirteen theme so you can see what features it has, as all of these features will be seen in Vivacity also. For more info on BuddyPress chekc out http://buddypress.org/

ollytron

Fantastic. I’ll play around with buddypress some more and hopefully make a purchase soon. Thanks for the speedy reply :-)

H! Again :) I noticed that blog paging on mansory mode dosen’t work & always shows the first pages content !

does it need any plugins ? check it plz :X

GhostPool

Hi there,

I don’t see this issue. Have you purchased the theme?

Hi there, I have now on an old version of extensio (it was a free version) for my WP website and it is absolutely slow, I’d like to change the template for vivacity but i would like to be sure if it will be ok and the website will be much quicker. Is it possible to try it and then buy it ? Or is it possible to buy, and if it does not work to be refund ? Thanks !

GhostPool

Hi there,

It’s not possible to try before you buy or receive a refund unless the theme is not as advertised. Obviously the reason for this is so that people don’t get the theme for free.

The theme has a number of features to make it run fast. CSS and fonts are used in place of theme images, post images are cropped to the size you need, the code is not cluttered, JavaScript is loaded at the bottom.

You can view the Google Pagespeed score for Vivacity here: http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=vivacity.wpengine.com

Default-user

Thanks for your answer, i am a little bit surprised, because when I go on your live preview, I have the feeling your website is very quick, but when I go on developpers google speed, it is only 62/80 and mine is now 58/71 which seems not such a big difference !

GhostPool

Page speed doesn’t take into account all factors that can make a website fast. The most important factor is who you are hosted with, make sure you have a good web host with fast servers. Also use a caching plugin (WP SuperCache or W3 Total). And of course your own site may get more visitors than my demo site, the more people you get the bigger than strain on the server speed.

Hello! I’m currently using your Score theme, and have been for just over 2 years now. We were hoping to use one of your themes again in a redesign, as we’ve had great results so far.

www.thegamejar.com

I’ve been looking at Vivacity and it is stunning. My only question would be whether it has a review section, as the Score theme does? I may have missed it during my look through the theme preview… but it would make this a definite purchase if it was included.

If it’s not there at present, will there be an option for it in the near future?

Thanks, and keep up the amazing work! :)

GhostPool

Hi there,

Vivacity does not currently have any review features, however I am considering adding some. I did ask my followers on Twitter about this, but didn’t get much of a response (follow me on Twitter @ghostpool to have you input).

My next theme will also be a review theme that has all the features of Score and ReviewIt but also has all the amazing features of Vivacity. Basically it will be the perfect theme does anyone using Score currently. If you want to wait you can expect this theme to be out in a couple of months time.

I think it as not a matter of plug-in .

Hi there,

Anyone can sign up to the support forum – new members are registering all the theme. What error message do you receive when trying to sign-up?

We really like the look of the coming soon and maintenance pages that you have featured. I understand that they are started from a blank page, but is there a template that is available or can be available as a starting place for creating these pages.
