Images are not uploading to wordpress properly – I used GoDaddy hosting account and installed wordpress from Cpanel. I uploaded the theme fine but I see only broken link – I don’t even see a thumnail. I’ve tried both in Safari and Chrome with the same results. Is this a problem with theme or hosting—??

Problem fixed – the issue was with GoDaddy.

To be honest, I am disappointed that the documentation you provided does not show you how to set up the theme like the demo. Do you have a step by step guide or a xml file ?

Can you please provide a step-by-step on how to set up the theme as I’m sure this will help improve your buyer rating and potentially help you sell more. Thanks.

Hello? Any response?

JoeyDoey

Hi,

First, thanks for the purchase and sorry the instructions are confusing. I unfortunately haven’t had a chance to update and package the xml along with the download.

Re: setting it up like the demo though:

  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.

That handles the front page which might be the most confusing. The other pages and functionality are pretty straight forward, I think.

Let me know if you need clarity on any other features.

Hope that helps.

Thanks.

I can’t find any documentation on how to change the user/contributor/author image on the front page. ??

JoeyDoey

So, basically, the theme assumes anyone with an “admin” role is a contributor.

For a quick fix, find the following file inside the “page-templates” folder:

webbie > page-templates > front-page.php

Right around line #23 find the following line:

<?php get_template_part('template-parts/contributors-listing'); ?>

Comment that out, like below (or delete it entirely):

<?php //get_template_part('template-parts/contributors-listing'); ?>

That will get rid of the contributor section of that page. Do the same wherever else this section appears, e.g. the dedicated contributors page (wherever the contributors-page.php template is used).

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can edit the function that handles this.

In functions.php, right around line #838, find the following line,

$authors = get_users('role=administrator’);

Check out the WP codex re: get_users() http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_users and see what arguments you need in order to limit whom the theme considers a “contributor”.

Hope that helps.

Thanks – yes, we just removed the contributor section by commenting out the font-page.php.

How would you change the button (use a custom image) on the front page? For instance, rather than having 2 buttons, we would like to have 1 larger button with custom color/gradients.

Thanks in advance.

JoeyDoey

The Webbie theme assumes and encourages you to both sell a downloadable and a readable/online version of the book. If you don’t have one or the other, then you’d just omit the link to it.

If the button that shows up isn’t big enough for your needs, then you’d just have to hop into the CSS and enlarge whichever one of those buttons that you need to be more prominent.

I hope that helps

Joey, something has changed to the script’s showing of the Call to Action Sidebar on single blog posts since the recent WP upgrade. I just noticed it this morning on my client’s site.

Default Template is used on single post blog and where the SideBar was previously shown it is now absent and void.

Please advise. I do not see that an update to your template has been provided or required, but something has been changed.

Thanks in advance.

JoeyDoey

Hi,

Nothing has changed. The demo is running on the latest version of WordPress (3.8) and there are no issues. here’s a standard single post page: http://demo.ebookcake.com/webbie/?p=1

Must be something to do with your client’s installation. Might want to try and deactivate any plugins first to troubleshoot.

Hope that helps.

Thanks.

How I can do to translate webbie into Spanish?

JoeyDoey

Hi!

Thanks for the purchase!

All strings in the Webbie theme are translation ready. Meaning that from here, if you don’t know how to create the .mo and .po files needed, you might need to go through the Translation instructions on the WordPress codex in order to translate the theme to the language(s) you need.

Another popular (and easy) alternative is to use a plugin like WPML (The WordPress Multilingual Plugin) to get it done.

Hope this helps.

I purchased your theme. Was hoping the documentation will provide a complete instruction on how to make setup a similar website like the webbie demo, however am disappointed.

1. Can you provided guide line on how to setup a similar site like webbie demo?

2. Is webbie for only a single book? I was hoping to sell multiple ebooks using webbie…and from the description of webbie on themeforest I thought is for selling multiple or many ebooks.

3. I also wanna modify webbie to allow other people to sell their ebooks and write their books online. Any idea how best to start by digging into yoyour codes.

Finally I must say that webbie is awesome but you can make it better.

Is there a way to modify the default appearance so that the header color would be black instead of grey? So that the orange stylin won’t change.. Thanks

Hi Joey, I can’t find a Blog page template. How do I create a menu link to a page of all blog posts like in the demo. Cheers, Myron

JoeyDoey

Hi, Myron.

Thanks for the purchase.

So assuming you have at least 2 pages created e.g. “Home” and another named “Blog”, do the following:

  • Go to Administration > Settings > Reading panel.
    • Set Front page displays to a static page
      1. In the drop down menu for Front Page select “Home.”
      2. In the drop down menu for Posts page select “Blog” or the name you created, or leave it blank if you will not feature posts on the site.
      3. Save changes.

Hi.

First of all, I’d like to say that you did a great job with this theme!

I’m having two little problems with the review page (I’ve published three reviews), and I hope you can help me fixing it.

1. Instead of the arrows in both right and left sides, I’m seeing two black boxes.

2. I cannot publish a no star rating review, even if I chose this option in the ‘Review Person Info’.

My site is: www.danielcariello.com.br

Thank you!

JoeyDoey

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the purchase. Sorry about the issues.

For #1, this is by design. However, if you want to revert to the default arrows or use your own arrows, edit the css/flexslider.css file and adjust the “background” for the css class .flex-direction-nav a

I’ll look further into #2. Could be a bug.

Hope that helps.

Thanks.

Default-user

Hi Joey,

Did you fix the issue #2?

Thank you!

Hi, I am planning to buy this theme and I have a question. I want to sell three ebooks. The front page option and theme options (the book cover and etc.) allow just one book. If I don’t want to present the other two books in “features” below, is there a possibility to show the books like the main first book? I don’t want that it will look like the first book is more important then others.

JoeyDoey

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in the theme. The primary aim of Webbie is to sell and present one book. However, the theme uses Easy Digital Downloads plugin which you can use to sell multiple books.

As for presentation on the front page, the only option would be to jump into the code and edit how that page functions.

Hope that was helpful.

Thanks.

I can’t understand how to add an author picture to the front page (the picture in the circle) and how to connect the “about” page to this section in the front page.

JoeyDoey

Hi,

The author(s) picture and info is automatically gathered based on what users have admin level access to the site. Basically the theme assumes anyone with that level access is an author/contributor to the site.

Default-user

Hi, thanks. The problem is that I don’t see the option to add a picture (as user/admin). I it possible to add author picture without adding links to social networks?

JoeyDoey

WordPress uses http://gravatar.com/ to pull in the user avatars. You should sign up if you haven’t already.

Hello, I have a book I’m thinking on having put into an “ebook” and this theme looks promising.

Do I need to have my book converted to a certain file to upload into the theme for online reading?

JoeyDoey

Hi,

Thanks for considering Webbie. The online version of the book, you’d have to copy/paste into WordPress in order to make it actually accessible to read as a web-book. If you also want to offer a downloadable (e.g. PDF) then just use the free Easy Digital Downloads plugin to handle that.

Hope that’s helpful.

Thanks.
