It seems like sort of what I’m looking for but here’s the missing part. How many books I can display using this theme and where I can display a book cover thumbnails gallery so the visitors can select the book they want to read online instead of download it.?

JoeyDoey

The Webbie theme assumes you’ll be selling 1 theme. That said, it uses the free Easy Digital Downloads plugin with which you can set up a full shop with multiple products for downloads. You cannot, however read multiple books with the theme at this time.

I am interested in this theme. One quick question though, how are the chapters (with thumbnails) being loaded into the sidebar while reading the book? Are they in a widget? Are they dynamically loaded?

Thanks

JoeyDoey

Thanks for your interest in Webbie.

The chapters are dynamically loaded, yes. Its a widget-ready sidebar which has the list of chapters as the default content.

Hope that helps.

Hi,

I am interested in this theme.

Could you please explain the email capture capabilities? Is there a email capture box which I can add and have in multiple places across the site? Even on the blog page too?

Also, does the theme link with Mailchimp?

Thanks!

JoeyDoey

Hi,

Thanks for your interest.

The theme doesn’t come with any built-in email capture functionality. However, you can easily sign up for Mailchimp, install the Mailchimp plugin that should give you access to widgets (with email forms) which you can place throughout the site as needed.

Hope that helps.

Is that book sidebar one standard sidebar or can I have as many custom sidebars as I want depending on the book that particular page is selling (I have six books and counting)

JoeyDoey

Hi,

The theme actually only accounts for marking/presenting 1 book. With the suggested Easy Digital Downloads plugin, though, you can have a shop sell multiple downloads (books). The book sidebar is just the one but it is widget-ready so you are able to insert widgets as needed.

Hope that helps!

AH thanks. Not what I’m looking for in my author site then. Beautiful work, though.

My client has 3 books. He needs to sell the .mobi, .epub and the print versions. Would it be possible with this theme?

JoeyDoey

Hi Akrua,

At the moment the theme is designed to handle presentation and marketing of 1 ebook.

Thanks.

Just bought the theme and like it a lot.

But I can’t figure out how to set up the nice landing-page style home page as demo’ed here: http://themeforest.net/item/webbie-wordpress-theme-for-ebook-authors/full_screen_preview/4706203

How do I do that?

JoeyDoey

Hi Tod,

Thanks for the purchase!

To set up the home page like in the demo, do the following:

  1. Start by creating a page and assigning it the “Front Page” template.
  2. In your theme options (/Appearance > Theme Options) Go to the “Book Settings” tab and fill out the information as needed: upload book cover, enter title if different from site title, subtitle, etc.
  3. For the Features to appear below the masthead, go to the “Features” Custom Post Type and add as many features as you want to appear. Add a description and upload 1 or more Featured Images(s).
  4. Do the same for “Reviews”. Use the Reviews custom post type to add as many reviews as your book has.
  5. Your “user/author” information will get picked up automatically. But to include the additional fields e.g. social links, go to your profile “Users > Your Profile” and add as much info as you’d like.

At this point, all the elements of the front page should be in place.

Hope that helps.

Thanks again!

Awesome – and thanks for the quick reply. I’m getting closer.

I actually have another co-author. I suppose I could make a Feature with both of us. Is there a way to disable the automated author section from appearing?

JoeyDoey

Hi Tod,

If you add your co-author as a user and give them admin privilege, then their info will show up as an author as well.

Also Im getting this error:

“The `href` parameter must reference a valid Facebook page, but “http://www.facebook.com/TouchTheBook” is not a valid Facebook page.”

How do I remove that?

Site is http://www.touchthebook.com

JoeyDoey

Hi Tod. Sorry you’re having this issue. I’m not able to replicate it but the URL you have (http://www.facebook.com/TouchTheBook) doesn’t appear to be a live Facebook page.

One last one — I can’t seem to disable the Categories, Archives, and Tags widgets in the sidebar.

I don’t have them added in the Widgets section. Any ideas how to turn those off?

JoeyDoey

Hi Tod,

The blog sidebar has default content in each of its widget ready areas that’ll appear if you don’t actually set up widgets.

What you can do is add a BLANK text widget to the areas you don’t want to have content show up in.

Hope that helps.

Is there any way to organize the table of contents? Your PDF documentation says that under ‘book settings’ you should be able to define the table of contents but there is no setting for the TOC there. If you write your first chapter, and then your second chapter, the first chapter now becomes the second chapter and the second becomes the first. I’ve tried playing with the date scheme to no effect, the TOC doesn’t change. 4 chapters deep and the first chapter is the fourth and I can’t see to find anyway to change that? Any help please?

JoeyDoey

Hi Beattie,

Thanks for the purchase!

Have a look at the Post Types Order plugin. It’ll allow you to reorder (drag & drop) your chapters as you’d like them to appear.

Hope that helps.

Awesome suggestion. Thanks. I’d consider including that somewhere else if you can..

Very beautiful and attractive theme. Well Done!

Hi! I’m interested in this theme, but I would like to know if you plan to support the ability to swipe back and forth between pages using a tablet or smartphone, as you would with a real e-book. If not, do you know of a plug-in that would allow for that? Thanks!

What are the short codes as shown in this page of demo – http://demo.ebookcake.com/webbie/?page_id=106#? It’s not listed on documentation PDF nor on demo site.

I tried to search for plugin zilla-shortcodes from within WP admin, but cannot find it.

Please help.

JoeyDoey

Hi Lori,

Inside the “webbie-package” that you received upon purchase, you should find a “suggested-plugins” folder within which is the “zilla-shortcodes” plugin used to generate those short codes.

In reality, you can use any one of the myriad shortcodes plugins widely available.

Thanks.

I am having trouble creating DropDown menus under Book. I already have pages Buy My Book, Read My Book built with Book being the parent, however, they are not showing up. Please help.

JoeyDoey

Hi Lori,

Thanks for the purchase and sorry you’re having an issue with this. Once you’ve created the pages, you need to navigate to Appearance > Menus and create a menu that goes in the “main menu” location. You should then be able to drag, drop and reorder your pages as you see fit.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. This now works.

Hi we were looking into purchasing this. We did not want to use it for selling a e-book though. We do a digital magazine that is a digital flip book that we publish every three months. We wanted a simple theme to put the flipbook on. Can we do that with this?

Thanks,

Kenny

Hi You helped me a lot thank you I bought this theme and I liked it I want to hide or Delete menue chapter http://ahadith-annas.sa/Attachments/delete%20thes.PNG please help me and thank you for help.
JoeyDoey

Hi,

Glad you liked the theme.

The “eBook Sidebar” has predefined/ default content that’ll appear if you don’t actually insert any widgets.

What you can do is add a BLANK text widget (no title and no content) to replace the default content.

Hope that helps.

Default-user
Thank you for the help, but I want to delete I do not want any content appear for sliderbar plz help like http://ahadith-annas.sa/Attachments/125.png
JoeyDoey

To completely get rid of the sidebar, create a page and use the “full-width” template.

Thanks.

Hi! Really good looking theme congratz! We are considering buying your theme for one of our company’s website but before that we have a question: is it possible to insert a carousel or a least a slider on the homepage?? Thanks for your answer and have a great day! Nathalie
