Just a couple of quick questions.
I like this website here. http://www.charterbayhomes.com/
Is there an extra cost for the slider “what we are working on” in the right column?
And in the portfolio photo gallery, is there an option to post side by side a before and after picture?
Those links I posted are from live user sites, so some things may be from other areas. For example, the slider you see in the sidebar is a widget, probably from a 3rd party plugin “Houzz”.
You can post a side by side before/after shot depending on how you set it up. You can make it one image and use that as the featured image.
Crazy item! Really love it!!!
I don’t see the option anywhere Gravity plugin interface in Wordpress, I download it, or should come preinstalled with the theme.
Are you referring to Gravity Forms? That is a 3rd party premium plugin that you will need to purchase separately. Avada includes design styles for it so when you use it the forms will look like our Avada forms.

Thanks for your response.
What other choice do you recommend I use? Because the Gravity plugin seems very expensive, the price is almost equal to the price of theme.
Yes you can use the Free Contact Form 7 plugin
Both create forms and have Avada styles.
I install WordPress 3.8.1 and download Avada Full package (241 Megs), i cant download the themes in WordPress .

How do I make the featured image in the blog section show the subjects face and not the middle of the image.
Thank you and talk soon.
Blog featured images are going to be auto cropped to be the same size, it is done for consistency. But you can change that per post and enter a custom size. Please refer to our docs to know how to do that, look at the “Featured Image Info” section here: http://theme-fusion.com/avada-doc/blog-2/blog-post-types/
Are there known issues with the LayerSlider not working properly with the 3.3.1 version in Chrome, Firefox and IE?
The theme works fine in Safari, but when I open the site in Chrome, FF or IE the slider cycles through once, then stops on the last slide. The > and < arrows also don’t work.
Also, in Chrome the browser apparently can’t find the path to one of the .png images I use in the slider, but Safari can, which is totally baffling to me.
Hmm no there are no known issues with LayerSlider and 3.3.1. Although you should update to v3.4 which contains a brand new layer slider.
HOW TO UPDATE YOUR THEME
IMPORTANT UPDATE INFORMATION
Please update to v3.4 and then test it out. If you still see the issue please post on our support forum where we can assist you.
I need the ads in my web site just like www.gulte.com website, can I get any help how to add the ads in header, sidebar, content, footer, etc, in the avada theme.
You can add ads to any sidebar or footer widget area by adding a widget and inserting your ad. Use the basic text widget and insert an image, or use an ad plugin that offers an ad widget of some kind. Inserting ads in page content can also be done by inserting it as an image, or by using a plugin that allows you to insert widgets on pages. http://theme-fusion.com/knowledgebase/how-to-use-widgets-in-regular-page-content-area/

Thank you, we look forward to serving you!
thanks for providing great theme!
I downloded theme and transfer it to server by using ftp. and complete install it just now. then I imported your demo. But the important thing is I don’t know how to changing images, editing previous text and remove the manu I don’t need.
Please explain me easily… Sorry for annoying you, author
You can change out images and text by editing the appropriate page they are on. Open a page by clicking on “Pages” in your Wp admin, find the image and text you want to replace and replace them. Use the Wordpress toolbar to make the edits.
The menus are edited in the “Menu” section of your admin. Click on “Appearance > Menu” and then select a menu and remove any pages you do not want. Click the arrow next to each menu item and it will expand and you can then choose to delete it.
I would also suggest reading through our documentaiton and videos.
Is there a way to increase the width of the entire theme?
Instead of 940x, I would like to run the entire theme at about 1170px?
Yes it can be done but would require custom CSS changes and adjustments, there is not a theme option for this yet. However, in our next major version v4.0 there will be
Very nice theme! Can I translate it into Greek though? Somewhere to upload two files (greek .po and .mo files) ?? if yes how can I?
Please help me
Yes you can translate it into any language you need. We provide some languages that were submitted by our users, which you can find in the “languages” folder in the main “Avada” theme folder. Also, see our docs on how to translate: http://theme-fusion.com/avada-doc/special-features/translation-rtl/
I do not need all the advice in English. I can translate only those who want to rest and leave them blank? Thanks a lot
I’m not sure I understand. If you want the user to choose what language the site shows, then you can do that but need a plugin like WPML to allow a language switcher.

Pre Sales Question. Does this theme support video backgrounds? Comparing to [names removed] that offers video backgrounds.
You can use video backgrounds in the rev slider, but not in page content yet. We are adding video backgrounds for our full width page sections in a near future release.
Thanks for getting back to me. Any indication when this release may be? 1 month? 6 months?
It will be included in our next major version, v4.0. However an exact release date cannot be given yet, but it will be our next major one. One month is too soon, 6 months is too long, so probably in the middle but nothing is definite. But it is coming
Hi I am creating a website for a flooring distributor and was wondering would this website template be suitable. I want it too stand out.
Yes it will, I also emailed you about this with more details.
i have one question. I want have on my portfolio page only the lightbox link. not more. i want click on the picture and switch with the arrow button beetwen all pictures. Is that possible?
thank you very much
You can disable either of the icons you see on the image rollover. You can do it per post in the post options box, or do it globally via theme options on the “Portfolio” tab.
The lightbox that opens though on the main portfolio pages (not single post pages) will show the first featured image of each post on that page, and not cycle through the featured images of only that post. The single post page lightbox will cycle through the images of that one post. This was the main default setup that users wanted originally. However in the future, we are going to add an option to let the user choose the behavior of the lightbox.
where can I set that the portfolio shows random
Hmmm you want the posts to show in random order? There is not an option for that, although there should be a plugin out there that can give you this feature. I would search google for “random post plugin” and see what you find.
I want to use just one widget in my footer, but it needs to be centered, how do i do that?
That will require custom CSS. You can choose one widget in theme options > footer and it will set it to be one column so only one widget shows. From that point you will need to style it to be centered. I would suggest posting on our support forum with this request and include your site URL so they can inspect it and give you the CSS.
thank you so much
You are welcome See you on the forum!
Hi I’m having a conflict with some of the core features of Events Calendar Pro after installing this theme. Is that a know issue? Is there a way to correct it? Specifically, I can not get my events to show up in the month view of my calendar. Please advise. Thanks
Are you using Avada v3.4? It should not be an issue. Also, please disable any extra 3rd party plugins you have running that might be conflicting with the events calendar pro plugin.
Is it possible to create an event directory with Avada similar to Appthemes:Vantage, DirectoryPress or Templatic:Directory?
The focus needs to be on event-entries as opposed to “just” business listings. The main features we need are that of: back-end: creating events, front-end: displaying a list of events (thumbnail, title, start-end-date, location…) and an event-page where more details will be displayed. The question is whether I could customize Avada in a way to make this possible. Thanks! Simon
There is not an out of the box feature for this, but yes if tyou are familiar with coding you can customize it however you would like, you get all the original coded files.
But an easier solution in my mind would be to use an event plugin, like Event Manager or Event Espresso, or other similar plugin.

I like this theme and its flexibility very much. I now have a site using an older version of Joomla and am considering using Wordpress and this theme for an upgrade. It’s for a smaill coaching&training company so it needs functionality to promote workshops & trainings & events. Is this theme prepared for functionality like that? And what third party product could I best use for presenting a appetizing list whit pictures of events, and some sort of coming-event list and a training detail page and the possibility to enrol in a program or event in a venue, and an counter for a next big event? Shortly everything you would amagine when organizing and promoting events & workshops. I saw another theme that had a nice presentation I like [link removed] and the site http://www.familieopstellingen.nl/ has some nice list-presentation and an upcoming events in the start page with extra info and picture when you hover over it. I would like something that is integrated and looks like more advanced than a basic calendar with just some textual info. I like your theme better than the alternative and would like that sort of functionality embedded. Can you advice please? Would it be wise for me to switch to Wordpress for such a site? Thanks, Hans
ps. My website is in the Dutch language, so I especially like too that you already offer a Dutch language file with it. It seems like a great theme, but I need a well presented solution for events and activities in it before I can decide.
For events such as that, you would need to use a plugin like Events Manager or Event Espresso. And I would imagine you can use either of those plugins for all those other items you asked for (appetizing list whit pictures of events, and some sort of coming-event list and a training detail page and the possibility to enrol in a program or event in a venue).
I’m not sure ab out a counter for an event, you will need to see if the plugin offers that, or possibly use a different one.
Yes you can use Wordpress for that type of thing, it just depends on your preference. Avada is not an event type of theme so you will need to use a premium plugin to get all those features you need, but it can be done.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your quick respons. I will look for the plugins you mentioned, and see what they have to offer. Your answer still leaves me some questions. Would you please respond, if you can?
I know Avaya is not an event type theme, that’s also the basis of my original question about a plugin, but my search on Themeforest just game up with a few church themes, of which I liked the one I mentioned earlier somewhat, and a small number of themes for a schoolsetting, that I didn’t like that much and weren’t hat slick of to ICT-business-like. I haven’t found one I like for joomla either, so its not something that seems easy available.
Do you think I should be better of continue searching for a theme that is already made for events? Or do you know of a theme more suitable, that you know, so that I can look at it. I haven’t found theme’s for a personal development or coaching company, organising some workshops etc. Is it perhaps the best choice to use a general theme like Avada with use of a third party plugin?
The church and events theme also uses third party plugins, so it seems that mostly a event theme would be necessary if presentation would require changing the theme itself. Is that likely necessary for better presentation, or is it in Wordpress also that a plugin uses part of its own css files and changes should be made in the plugin?
I don’t feel confident and capable to try add on or change advanced theme’s like avada, so DIY is no option if a change in the themefiles are neccessary. I have changed my current theme a bit, but that was before everything got advanced and responsive. It seems all to advanced for me now. So I would like to by a theme that is as complete as possible for my purpose, so I perhaps just have to select a plugin or something.
In my question about if wordpress would be a good choice you said it is just a question of preference. Since wordpress seems simpler to use and using a good theme it would be oke. I wonder if performance and security is sufficient, less or better in Wordpress, Could you comment on that? Thank you very much in advance. Hans
Honestly it all depends on what you want. If this is purely for events then you probably would be best off using an event theme that has those features built in.
A lot of what you are asking is hard to answer in detail. Wordpress theme + plugin can be used to get what you want, or use an event theme that has it built in. You may need a plugin anyway even with an event plugin. Depending on what you need and want, you may need to customize either option to your liking, I cannot say for certain if you will be required to do additional CSS changes or not, that all depends on what you need and want with it during setup.
If customizations are not an option for you, then you should be finding a theme that already has the features you need. That would be the best option imo.
I’m not familiar with using Joomla so I cannot compare it to Wordpress for security or performance. I imagine there are several articles online you can find that compare the two. For our part, Wordpress has always been sufficient for anything we have done so we highly recommend it. But again, its a personal preference.
how can i make a rollover image? (link open in a new tab)
In the portfolio options box is this option: http://d.pr/i/bZ6Y
