Your DEMO link is broken. Correct please? I am considering purchasing but need to see a demo first. Thank you. http://themeforest.net/item/webbie-wordpress-theme-for-ebook-authors/full_screen_preview/4706203

Demo link’s not broken. Might have been randomly down but is up.

Great thanks. Yeah Demo is working now. Can I use this theme to sell an actual physical book as opposed to an eBook or a download?

JoeyDoey

The theme is targeted mainly towards ebooks but, sure, you could use it to sell a physical book.

Using the theme’s options, just enter a URL that would direct people to whatever page your physical book is on. The suggested plugin (Easy Digital Downloads) doesn’t handle physical goods, though.

Hope that helps.

Hello, I have 5 testimonials entered however only 2 are showing up. How do I control that?

Please check here http://www.loriduffwrites.com/lori-writes-for-you/

Thanks.

JoeyDoey

I’m not really sure what that page is. The testimonials uses the ‘reviews’ page template.

So, just create the reviews from within the WordPress admin, create a page and assign it the ‘reviews’ page template.

Hope that helps.

HI Jeff,

Sorry you’re having issues. However, I’m unable to replicate this. The buttons load just fine in all those browsers.

I’m very interested in purchasing, I’ve read the comments and have seen several answers to my questions. The one question I still have is can I have a link on either the BUY IT or READ IT that goes to an ebook on AMAZON.COM ?

JoeyDoey

Yes, the text and links of the “buy it” and “read it” buttons can be whatever you want.

Oh, one other thing. Can I add a DONATE button in some way to the website ?

Also, I may end up with a two book series or possibly three book series. I understand that at this time, this theme is meant for only one book, but if I want to expand it for two books is it possible for me to get a web developer to dig into the code and help me find a way for it to work with two books, or even three ? Is that allowed ?

JoeyDoey

Yes, you can add a donate button; a developer would be able to extend the themes functionality to handle multiple books.

I purchased Webbie and am having some success setting it up. But I cant figure out how in the demo you created the Mr. Donny Awesome section on the home page with the pink design. Can you elaborate on that. Thanks

JoeyDoey

Hi. Thanks for your purchase. This part of the home page is generated automatically if you enter any “Reviews” from within the WordPress admin. Thanks.

Default-user

Thanks I can see how that is working now.

I am trying to add a playlist to the website and I installed a plugin for Soundy Audio Playlist and I see it is available now like for Features, Chapters, etc but I don’t know how to actually make it work. Some of the fields that look like I should be able to type into are not allowing it. It says: To display the playlist on the front-end use the short code: [sdy_pl playlist] – but I don’t know where I’m supposed to put that short code. Can you advise ? Thanks

Default-user

Okay, I made progress on this. I figured out that this short code: [sdy_pl playlist] needs to be added to the text window of the feature (must have the playlist set to YES) and then in the SETTINGS there is a TEST playlist that can be installed that will show how it will look. I’m playing with that now to see how this works. thanks

HI,

One of my clients bought this theme so that I can setup one for her but I am having problem setting up its first page as it looks here http://demo.ebookcake.com/webbie/ Could you please help me? have gone through the documentation as well but there is no option given to set the page look as in the preview. We thought that adding Book Cover, Title, Sub-title etc will make the Home Page look as it is now but Sorry, there is no help.

Thanks

JoeyDoey

Assign that page the “Front Page” template and you should be good.

Default-user

HI,

Thanks for the reply. I created Reviews, Features, and Added Book Details in Theme Options Sections but unfortunately, I could not get the look for the home page as here http://demo.ebookcake.com/webbie/ currently the site looks like this one http://youngandinfluential.com/?page_id=2

Your theme is too much confusing without any step by step guide. Kindly tell me how can I get the same look for front page as your Demo. I need step by step process as I cannot find direct option in your theme. Kindly help else I will have to ask my client to raise a request for money back as Theme is not as it is in Demo.

Thanks

HI,

Thanks I found the solution.

Thank you so much

Hello, I really do not understand this plugin. Can I write and publish books on it?

Regards

JoeyDoey

Hi,

This is a theme, not a plugin. You can write the web-book using the “Chapters” custom post type. You can then sell a downloadable version of the book (e-book) with any plugin you’d like. I suggest using the Easy Digital Downloads plugin as shown in the theme demo.

Hope that helps.

Hi Joey,

I’m about to buy this theme to sell a Physical Book (not eBook). With this theme is also possible to buy physical book instead an eBook? As I’m going to sell the book, I will need to gather the delivery address and so on. ¿Can the paypal/payment method whithin the template do this too?

Best regards

JoeyDoey

Hi,

> With this theme is also possible to buy physical book instead an eBook?

The Webbie theme lets you present your book. As shown in the demo, you can also sell a digital version of your book with a plugin like Easy Digital Downloads.

To sell a physical book (or any other physical product), use any one of the many e-commerce plugins available out there, e.g. Woocommerce.

Hope that helps.

Hello i have bought this theme and I am getting ALOT of trouble to set up my home page to look like what is in the demo. I am adding images and the images arnt showing up. I have set the template to “front page and i am still to get it to look as your demo” this is what it looks like

http://www.wordsound.co PLEASE HELP ME
JoeyDoey

Thanks for the purchase! Sorry you’re having issues setting it up.

Your front page looks good; pretty much like the demo (but with your book’s content). I’m not sure what images you’re referring to.

If you mean that from within the WP back-end, the “Front Page” template is not showing content you enter in the WP editor, that particular page template is meant to accept/output the content its already showing. It grabs content from a few different places (as you’ve already input) and outputs there.

Hope that makes sense.

Hi,

Will this theme work with putting an entire ebook (manual) online so it can be read only by users who are granted access to the WordPress site?

Can I remove the buy it & read it buttons and the sections (menu) I won’t need related to buying, reviews, contributors, etc.

I basically need a theme that allows me to add an entire ebook to a site where all the contents (chapters) are easily available to navigate and read online. And certain information on the pages can be hyperlinked if needed as well.

I was hoping I could get this theme to work in that manner.

Please advise.

Thanks.

JoeyDoey

Hi.

Thanks for considering the Webbie theme.

Yes, the theme will work for that purpose. Of course, you’ll need a content restriction or membership plugin (or use WP default password protection) to achieve this.

All the buttons are editable. You can leave the options for the buy now/read it buttons blank and the buttons won’t show up.

The “contributors” section on the homepage is the only one that’s automatically generated. The other sections will remain blank if there are not features or reviews input from the backend.

Hope that helps.

thanks.

I get this error message everytime I try to visit my chapters.

Oh no! Page not found. Sorry, about that.

Try searching for it

Why?

JoeyDoey

Hi. Thanks for the purchase! Do you have a link to your site? It’d be easier to troubleshoot.

Thanks.
