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.?

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?

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?

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?
