If only I could integrate this with Vanilla rather than BuddyPress. Beautiful theme.

Is the demo site using bbPress as well as BuddyPress? are the forum sections done with bbPress?

Also is it possible to switch back and forth between the light and dark version of the theme from the admin?

All forums are on bbpress. Buddypress doesn’t use built-in forums anymore.

Also is it possible to switch back and forth between the light and dark version of the theme from the admin?

Yes, just make 1 click and save.

Something very strange going on when I click on a heading in the forums… http://demo1.diaboliquedesign.com/6/forums/forum/news-community/

Diabolique

There is nothing strange, this forum doesn’t contain any topics, that’s all :)

So is there a homepage editor for this, or is the homepage format in the demo pretty much what you get?

Diabolique

You can’t move blocks of content on the frontpage.

Hi Diabolique,

Great development work on this template. Love it! I’m actually shocked it has so little sells right now. Hoping to change that.

I’m working on a massive community project. I have investors and budget to work on. I am currently looking for a social interactive community template and Xphoria is an interest to us. Just a few questions to clarify before purchase:

You mentioned in a comment (above this one) that we cannot move blocks of content on the frontpage. I am planning to use these “blocks” as news blocks for events. Meaning, I’ll be constantly adding new event news on the frontpage. Is this possible? Does it do it automatically? Does it expand or is it a certain limit per blocks on frontpage? So basically can you explain in detail?

Newsletter subscription! There isn’t none. Will this be available soon? Any alternatives? WP Plugins for newsletter?

MP3 player! Just curious, but would an MP3 plugin from TF be possible to install without any conflicts?

Responsive: We noticed in one of the comments above, you mentioned the theme is responsive? For smartphones, ipad…etc. ? Can you please confirm?

Please let us know.

Great work and looking forward to your response.

Hi,

You mentioned in a comment (above this one) that we cannot move blocks of content on the frontpage. I am planning to use these “blocks” as news blocks for events. Meaning, I’ll be constantly adding new event news on the frontpage. Is this possible? Does it do it automatically? Does it expand or is it a certain limit per blocks on frontpage? So basically can you explain in detail?

You can just create a new widget area on the frontpage but style of your news will be different. You can setup any own limit.

Newsletter subscription! There isn’t none. Will this be available soon? Any alternatives? WP Plugins for newsletter?

You can use some plugin and display it on sidebar.

MP3 player! Just curious, but would an MP3 plugin from TF be possible to install without any conflicts?

Each MP3 player should work with my theme.

Responsive: We noticed in one of the comments above, you mentioned the theme is responsive? For smartphones, ipad…etc. ? Can you please confirm?

Yes, you can see it on this simulator – http://www.responsinator.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdemo1.diaboliquedesign.com%2F6%2F

Awesome! Last question, if we run into technical difficulties, would we be able to hire you (or your team) to perform custom work on template?

Diabolique

Unfortunately I don’t offer any services.

http://demo1.diaboliquedesign.com/6/groups/technology/members/

There’s a few pages that show up like this. Please fix and I will purchase.

Diabolique

This page looks fine for me – http://imm.io/1lSi6

Can i show the events on the frontpage with the same styling as you use now for the homepage?

Thanks !

Diabolique

Yes, such styling will be displayed – http://imm.io/1m6sT

I’m still debating if this template fits my needs. Can the events feature be customized? Can it be replaced by another event WP plugin?

Diabolique

Probably yes, but I can’t test 1000s plugins.

Is there a way I can totally get rid of the orange navigation at the top and just use a plugin like ubermenu? Thank you!

Diabolique

Open header.php and remove:

<div id="header-bar">
...
</div><!-- #header-bar -->

Can you change color from orange to anything else?

Thanks!

Diabolique

Yes, you can.

Sweet! I’ll be jumping on this with both feet soon!

Hi. Nice theme, but i want to ask you some questions.

I am using the Razor theme now and will make a start from it.

1. Is it easy to update from Razor to you theme? I asked it because the size on your group’s avatars are not standard.

2. Can i change layouts in your theme? In Razor i can do it. And I have some groups with different header and widget. For example- http://hunfis.ru/groups/flyfishing/ http://hunfis.ru/groups/ultralight/

3. In the post slider on home page I can see only number of comments. Can I add category and author name also?

4. Can I fix one news on home page?

And one more, I have blackberry q10 and your theme is displaying not a full wide, so it is hard to read blog post or something else. And there is the cool thing in blackberry “Read mode” (when i put the “R” my phone increases and tabulates a font), but i do not know why but in your theme this does not work.

Default-user

And do this theme have lightbox?

Diabolique

1. You have to reupload group thumbnails.

2. Unfortunately not.

3. Yes, but there will 1 hour of work so I can’t help you.

4. Unfortunately not.

Sorry but I can’t help you in this case, theme has 4 responsive layouts: 300px, 720px, 960px and 1280px – http://www.responsinator.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.demo1.diaboliquedesign.com%2F6%2F

Love this theme, it’s really built with the social site users in mind.

I’m sure you’re sick of this question being asked, as it’s always coming up in your other themes, but what about WooCommerce integration for xphoria? Any plans to do that? Do you have any examples of it working that you could share?

Hi DD,

Everything looks good but I have 1 remaining factor before I would like to buy this theme.

I see you have a “My bookings” feature. But I am unable to see this feature as it requires a login. Additionally, when I brows your events, I don’t see a “Booking” button, so how do users “book” an event?

Thanks!

And is it Event Manager pro or free version? WOuld like to know before I buy so I can upgrade if necessary. Thank you! :)

Diabolique

So the booking registration is closed in your demo then?

Yes

And is it Event Manager pro or free version?

It’s free version. Theme will work with both versions, also theme should work with 99% other plugins too.

Default-user

Amazing! You made my day! I will be upgrade Events Managment to pro version and purchase your template this week. Thank you again! Wish you tons of sales! Actually no, I want the template to be unique :P

Hello! Great job, congratulations. Three questions: 1. I have a group page without sidebar? 2. Can I make my home as I want, snapping slideshow and other elements? 3. Could a page full screen? I found the wide model still small

consultsite

Please disregard the above questions. What I want to know about is whether Xphoria choose which menus are displayed. - if I can put BuddyPress pages in the main menu, the silver. - Also wish I could change the background color to white. - and place widgets in the footer.

Diabolique

1. I have a group page without sidebar? 2. Can I make my home as I want, snapping slideshow and other elements?

It’s not possible, HTML edit is required.

3. Could a page full screen? I found the wide model still small

Following full page mode is possible only – http://www.demo1.diaboliquedesign.com/6/child-menu-2/

What I want to know about is whether Xphoria choose which menus are displayed. – if I can put BuddyPress pages in the main menu, the silver.

Theme uses custom menus – http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen

Also wish I could change the background color to white.

There is white color scheme available – http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/6142548-xphoria-buddypress-theme?index=13&url_name=xphoria-buddypress-theme

and place widgets in the footer.

It’s not possible.

Reviewing this theme. The minute I got the the theme I could see there would be issues. There is no zip file to upload, they just send a directory that you have to zip up yourself. Small thing but shows the author is not thinking “user”

There is no uploadable demo content. Again, not a big deal but for people who want “out of the box” quick start this is fiddly.

The instructions call for you to do a fair amount of playing with CSS in order to edit things, there is a tonne of code play in the instructions. They also call out that you may be contact by people wanting to steal the authors code . . again, this seems amateur.

I want to get this theme to work as it looks brilliant for BP, so will plug away . . but these sort of issues are what turns scares me buyng themes from new writers . ., they look fantastic on the demo but as soon as you pay the money, within a short time you can see that “under the hood” leaves a lot to be desired.

How should I test user demo since you disable the registration?

Default-user

Great, I gonna purchase it, but before that can I have a live demo to test as a user?

Diabolique

I don’t offer a test account. Theme uses the same back-end code like a default BP theme so everything must work. If you find some bug then I will fix it within 1-2 days.

My home page doesn’t look as same like yours, please check email that I have just sent to you, thank you

Hi Diabolique, Does this theme supports child theme? thanks in advance

Is there a way that each member can customize their Buddypress profile? Thanks

Diabolique

If you are talking about design then as I know something like that is possible with Buddypress – http://buddydev.com/buddypress/allow-your-users-to-change-their-profile-page-background-using-bp-custom-background-for-user-profile-plugin/

Also each member can have own blog with own WP theme.

Nice work on your theme. I am considering this one for a new build. Question:

I need user front-end submissions for photos and the blog. Do you or have heard of any success with this theme and User Pro or Ninja Forms – Front-end submissions add-on?

Thanks!

Diabolique

Theme should work with both plugins.
