I also submitted a support ticket about this yesterday.. —#HVL-378-30328
As Mike said, there are some great icon fonts out there that are completely licensed for us to use them in our themes. Some of these even have fairly big followings around them like FontAwesome for Bootstrap, for example.
And with this whole emerging retina display compatibility buzz feature on the horizon that I’m sure will sell many themes for Envato over the next year, I think it’s definitely something that needs to be defined and taken into consideration.
And as Chris said, maybe it would be a good idea for Envato to come have a list of ones we can use. Allow authors to point out new ones to Envato staff and their corresponding licenses in order for them to possibly be approved and added to this list that everyone can benefit from.
Is it possible that this is a WordPress.com site and not a WordPress.org installation on your own server? To use any theme you purchase on ThemeForest, you must have the WordPress PHP application installed on your own hosting account. This is different than setting a website at wordpress.com, which only allows you to install themes from WordPress, I believe.
I know you described the installation process from HostGator which would contradict my suggestion, but if you’ve gotten the two mixed up somehow, it would explain why there’s no Upload link when installing new themes.
Oh, WordCamp SF? I’m definitely in for that. I want an classic Envato shirt! Please swag me!
Ok, ok, onto more pressing matters… What’s this little pooper’s Envato handle going to be? This is a very crucial decision in this young one’s life, as Envato only allows you to change this one time upon request.
Does the theme actually have a favicon option? Many do not. In this case, if you’d like to be able to set it up through your WordPress admin, you can just a plugin like this one:http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-favicon/
There’s no real reason why it has to be something that’s a part of the theme.
Scratch that. Ivor is workin’ the weekend! The Swagger v1.1.1 has been posted if you want to download it.
I’m the author of that theme. It’s the strangest thing. No one has asked to do this before on any of my themes except for in the last week I’ve had about 4-5 people ask me this question in one way or another.
For next update this will be an option. I hope to update all five of my responsive themes this weekend. So, in your case look for Swagger 1.1.1 to be posted Monday morning when the ThemeForest reviewers are back at after the weekend.
