Can I use this theme for a completely different product that still need all these filters? In other words, Can I easily modify titles, filter names and values?

Yes, but it will require jumping into some code/templates.

Hello how can I remove the HOME on the top left of my home page? Or tell me what I need to Google to figure it out. ????

What size is the logo/ header/ banner area? I feel like I can make mine a little bigger because Macon Car Club looks so small. Thank you!

You actually need to be using the setting of Latest Posts under Settings > Reading as you’re not getting the correct listings template for search they’re displaying using the blog loop templates which is incorrect. If you don’t want to use the default home you’ll need to create a custom page template and include this bit of code before get_header(); example

Posted in the support system a few days ago, no answer. 1. The images are not inserted in to the listing when added via Add Media button, instead they are inserted in-between the text. 2. The listings don’t show up on the front page, no listing block on/off toggle in settings.

  1. Don’t click insert into post, the images are automatically pulled in
  2. Tag any listing with Featured under the Status taxonomy and you’ll be good to go! Screenshot:

Thank you for the quick response! Got the listing working, the images however still don’t work. I click on “Add Media” select the image/s I want, click the X to close, save/update the page, images do not appear.

I’m thinking a theme of this word press is bought. Does the version of the word press normally also move after 4?

In unskillful English, I’m sorry.

It fully supports the latest version of WordPress.

Hi List pages slide images I’m in trouble not be displayed .

To lighten the image and Tried to change the permissions of a folder , but it does not improve We are running without problems in the local wordpress environment .

thank you

Hi, the theme looks great and I am considering it for a new project. I noticed it has been over a year since this theme was last updated. Have you tested the theme for any vulnerabilities since this announcement was released?

Thank you

Yes, and its 100% secure it doesn’t use any of those functions.


Is there any useful documentation with regards to setting up the site from scratch? Maybe even importing the example content so that I can see how things work?

I am having trouble getting the featured listings to appear like they do on the demo.

When I have used WordPress themes in the past there is normally a helpful how-to guide but seems to be nothing with this one and I need to know ASAP as this is a quick turnaround prohect

Its included in the main download from Themeforest and its also linked in the header of the WP Pro Automotive Options area,

Tag any listing with Featured under the Status taxonomy and you’ll be good to go!


Thanks for the quick reply and solution…I thought I was going to go made! I did post on the support forum (same username) but didn’t receive a response hence trying here for more general help. Hopefully I can get it all done now :)

No probs, I’m a one man team so I also go through the support site tickets however I get quite a few they’re all answered in the order received.

I’m not sure what happened, but the site was working fine and recently all pages just load the home page. I have the templates set to the full width template. Any ideas what could be happening?

Sounds like you might have made a change in the admin settings, possibly permalinks, or installed a new plugin thats causing an issue.

This is very unstable. There are functions that no longer work. And I need to get a refund or help from you !

No. this is your issue. I have changes to the theme uploaded listings and one minute its fine the next , the listings for the cars disappear. I just tried to log into your your website to create a ticket and I’m getting no where with that. This is theme is not functioning the way it should. And you should not be trying to place the blame on someone else. I read other commenters who have the same issues. Again. This project is time sensitive and if you’re not going to help me, I want my money back!

I don’t think you’re understanding, if posts and data that you’ve entered into the admin are just “disappearing” thats a database problem, either it not being written, or served properly, could be errors within the tables, I can’t say for certain.

Whats your ticket number?

I’ve worked through all the tickets, so I’m sure I’ve responded to ya.

Hi, I need to replace the search bar in the nav with a Google custom search. Please let me know which file to do this in. I have looked through the theme files and cannot find where this is. I need the exact php file where I would replace the default search bar and replace it with Google’s code and the folder it’s in. Thanks!

Did you purchase the theme on another account? If so please open a ticket on the support site so I can verify your purchase.

Unfortunately, I just got this client. Their previous developer purchased it for them and installed/set it up but is no longer communicating with them. I simply need to know which file to change. Thank you.

There theme doesn’t include a search in the header, probably something added by the other developer but I would assume its in header.php. Unless you’re referring to the advanced search, that’s in includes > advanced-search.php.

Pre-sale question about auto trader theme,

i really want to have my website similar to truecar website, so i want to ask you about search filter, can this theme have search filter like first, buyer need to select either brand or body type then if choose brand then model of that brand will come up, while choosing body type the brand that have that body type will come up and let the customer choose, something like this, , i want search filter to work step by step. because sometime it does not make sense in some case, for example ( assume that there is no convertible type in BMW) , when buyer click at brand BMW and there is convertible body type option for them to choose ( assume that there is no convertible type in BMW) just example

can this theme fix this or is there anyway for me to fix this if i use this theme , if it require any plugin to solve this please tell me thank

Duplicate comment, see previous reply.

When I go to customize the Theme I have very limited customize options.

Make sure you’re using the WP Pro Automotive Options panel and not Appearance > Customize, this theme was developed way before the Theme Customizer was released.

The changelog in the downloaded file shows the last update as v1.1.0 4/21/2014 while here the last update date shows 26 June 15. Could you please verify?

There was a market wide mandated update to all WP themes using the prettyPhoto script for security issues, that’s why it shows updated.

Ok, so this is an important update. Would be nice have everything recorded in the various logs (your website, themeforest and theme changelog file with right version in the style.css). I’m dealing with many templates and Envato accounts (as an employer too) so the changelogs are very important for us. Now I know what’s about but tomorrow my colleague would not know. :)

Apologize for that confusion, because it was a wide spread update over 50 themes the changelog on much older themes weren’t updated.

When debugging, this PHP Notice is coming out:
PHP Notice: The called constructor method for WP_Widget is deprecated since version 4.3.0! Use __construct() instead.

In fact to fix this, you have to change the line 22 in wp-content/themes/automotive/admin/query-taxonomies/widget.php from:

$this->WP_Widget( 'taxonomy-drill-down', 'Taxonomy Drill-Down', $widget_ops );


$this->__construct( 'taxonomy-drill-down', 'Taxonomy Drill-Down', $widget_ops );

Please update the template, thank you.

There are many entries as parent::WP_Widget that should be changed in parent::__construct in multiple files in automotive/includes/widgets/*.php

I’m using PHP 5.5 and when debugging I’m also receiving this:
PHP Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in automotive/admin/theme-functions.php on line 608

That’s my line 608:

$translations = &get_translations_for_domain($domain);

Also, in the functions.php when registering the sidebar you have to use an ID since WP 4.2.0

if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') ) register_sidebar(array( 'name' => 'Homepage', 'id' => 'homepage',

There are 7 registered sidebars in the file. Please add the ID too on all of them. Thank you.

Using get_theme_data is deprecated since WP 3.4 released on June 13, 2012 wp_get_theme() has to be used instead.

./functions.php:118:$themedata = get_theme_data(STYLESHEETPATH . ’/style.css’);

./includes/widgets/ct-widget-followus.php:48: $theme_data = get_theme_data(TEMPLATEPATH . ’/style.css’);

./admin/theme-options.php:9:$themename = get_theme_data(STYLESHEETPATH . ’/style.css’);

./admin/admin-interface.php:91: <?php $theme_data = get_theme_data(TEMPLATEPATH . '/style.css'); echo $theme_data['Version']; ?>

./admin/admin-interface.php:101: $theme_data = get_theme_data(TEMPLATEPATH . ’/style.css’);

./admin/update-notifier.php:23: $theme_data = get_theme_data(TEMPLATEPATH . ’/style.css’); // Read theme current version from the style.css

./admin/update-notifier.php:43: $theme_data = get_theme_data(TEMPLATEPATH . ’/style.css’); // Read theme current version from the style.css

./admin/update-notifier.php:57: $theme_data = get_theme_data(TEMPLATEPATH . ’/style.css’); // Read theme current version from the style.css ?>

./admin/presstrends.php:29: $theme_data = get_theme_data(get_stylesheet_directory() . ’/style.css’);

As there are so many other things would be a good idea to use the Theme Check plugin

This may help as well

Good day author. Please would you mind telling me if this theme is fully responsive? Thank you very much in advance. :)

Yes, its fully responsive however I’d recommend taking a look at my newer WP Pro Automotive 2 theme instead
