Virtuti, I love this theme and have purchased it. I’ve been looking around and I can see how most of it works, but there are a couple of issues that I’m hoping you can help me with.

1. You said, “Single post page may use a list of custom fields like phone, email, map, image, video. But it is not a must–these custom fields might be filled in or might be not–it does not affect the entire look of the page.” I can’t find those custom fields that you are referring to.

2. You also said, “Besides regular posts I created also two custom post types for publishing other type of posts (on my demo they are Deals and Jobs). These posts do not interfere with regular posts, come as separate stuff and again, you may use them or skip using-depends on your needs.”

I don’t see those custom post types when I create a new post. Can you direct me to them?

Thanks for your help.

Hello,

2. You also said, “Besides regular posts I created also two custom post types for publishing other type of posts (on my demo they are Deals and Jobs). These posts do not interfere with regular posts, come as separate stuff and again, you may use them or skip using-depends on your needs.”

Activate CPT plugins and publish posts clicking “Add New” under CPTs (left black menu in Dashboard). View also Help file.

“However, I have come across another issue. When I try to post a “special” post, I works fine in draft mode until I publish the post, and then all links go to a “page not found” and defaults to a blank “List of Businesses” page.”

Did you revert permalinks to post name? Try this: click “Save” button or view more here: http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-wordpress-posts-returning-404-error/

“One other thing. The categories at the bottom of the home page are weird.” Categories are enabled by masonry script, you will need for at least 3 categories, otherwise, if your website will have 1 category only, it is smarter to delete this block at all. The site/theme supposes to have for at least a few categories.

“As I look back, I see that I’m having the same problem that selectasound has” First, click “save” button in permalinks.

Thank you!

Virtuti,

Thank you so much for your quick response. I have activated the CPT’s and clicked the save button in the permalinks settings. That has solved my issues. Thank you.

One last question…I love the added fields feature you have included in the Extras and Specials posts. Can you guide me as to how I would include that feature in the regular posts? I want to add the phone and map to regular business listings.

Can I locate that code in the page-specials.php and copy it to the page.php? Would that do it?

Again, thank you for your help and for this theme.

Virtuti,

Let me be clearer. I don’t have the custom field option for regular posts…

I do have that option in the Specials and Extras posts, but they won’t allow me add categories, which makes it difficult to make one of those pages as my “business list” pages.

Am I not getting something? I would like to have the fields option available when I create a regular post, but I can’t seem to find it.

Hello, correct, regular posts have no custom fields. You may copy custom fields code from single-the_extras.php into single.php.

Code starts from:
<div class="image-aside-content">
=======    
</div><!--image-aside-content-->

line#70

Thanks!

Virtuti,

Thank you for responding so quickly. I copied the code from single-the_extras.php into single.php and still no field option(s), custom or regular are showing up in the create new post section.

I apologize for the questions, but I really would like to make the site work like you have in the demo, where regular posts appear on the home page and they have the option to categorize and add fields. Are regular posts supposed to have field options to add videos, images, phone, email website and map like you have on the demo? If so I don’t have those options.

Let me see if I can explain with the following photo:

When I try to create a new regular post, this is what I see:

I think something is amiss, because I am pretty versed in using themes and figuring things out, but this has me stumped.

Perhaps I should start over and re-upload my theme?

Hi,

We have a pre-sales question. We are going to make a web to adopt pets. We want the animal shelters to allow upload the pets and normal people can choose between them, to contact the animal shelter must register.

Do you think we can do it through your theme? Or is needed a custom work? We can hire you for custom work if it´s needed.

Thanks

Hello, thank you for your interest!

If you mean “a business owner should be registered” to be able to publish details about the business this option is available. See: http://demo.virtuti.info/demonstrations/vt11/?page_id=15 and http://demo.virtuti.info/demonstrations/vt11/?page_id=20

I hope I understood your question, if not, please clarify, thank you!

When will you add payment plans to this? Almost all directory scripts have it, but this one is the prettiest.

Hi!

Two questions… Can this be easily used as a “private/closed” job directory? I mean, the people enter their resumes, but do NOT see any job listing at all, etc… and the “manager company” has access to those resumes in the backend, and can filter them to contact them, etc So, a place to receive people resumes and then contact them, etc

It will be hard to “import” resumes from an old website, something like importing using csv file or anything else?

Best regards! Luciano

Hello,

1) I think so. You, as admin, may see (from backend) submitted by registered users posts and not publish them.

An user (contributor) creates post, submits it and is waiting for admin approval (to be appeared on website, but naturally you may just contact an user in private way (by email or phone without populating his/her post on the website).

From “contributor” side it looks this way:

Admin views it from backend, edits it if necessary and publishes (or does nothing):

From admin side it looks this way:

Naturally you may use this type of posts for what you want (deals, resumes, job listings etc)

2) If your old site is one of the next, it is very easy:

Hope that helps!

Hi, This is a pre-sales question. I’m a bit of a Wordpress novice so apologise if these are dumb questions:-).

I currently operate a very basic community directory for my local area using Expression Web 4, and would like to smarten it up a bit and make it easier to maintain..

1. Is your theme supported under WP4.3, and will it be supported in future versions (the theme description indicates WP3.9 I think it was).

2. I intend (at least initially) to use it just for a community directory using basic one-line text listings (name, short description,contact details) for a variety of categories. a) Does the theme support this? b) The data on all the organisations I already have (from my current site). Can the theme import listing data from, say, an excel spreadsheet or does it have to be entered one at a time?

3. The theme doesn’t seem to have been updated since it was first released. What are your development plans (eg to make it mobile friendly)?

Many thanks!

Cheers ...Steve

Hello Steve, thank you!

Replying your questions:

1) Currently my demo is on 4.2.4 (I am always forgetting to update WP version in item description (I’ll do that after holidays–in early October).

I have not yet checked my demo on 4.3. I believe everything will be alright but before I test I do not want to assure. Again, I’ll test 4.3 version after the holidays. Further WP updates will be available, naturally, too.

2) If I understand you correctly–yes. It is exactly what theme does. b) view a previous comment (I replied to “luuuciano”: there is a screenshot displaying which exporting formats are available in WP.

3) Actually, point1 answers this question. + mobile version: currently it is good for desktops and tablets (with resolution not less than 1024px) but not for phones. Currently I have no plans for making it mobile phone suitable for nearest time but as a long term plan I do have it in mind. (I do not promise though anything:)

Thank you, again!

Hi, this is a pre-sales question: Do you see a problem if I add a banner ad plugin to your site and if not which banner ad plugin would you recommend?

Hello, thank you for your interest! I am not familiar with such plugins and cannot say anything, however, what I must mention is that, in general, all plugins are unstyled and may not fit theme design (what means extra html/css editing might be required). Thank you!

Hi. Well, I purchased the theme thank you for your previous reply!

I’m a site owner, and have very limited experience with Wordpress. I have the theme installed on Wordpress 4.3.1 and have gone through the steps in the Help document up to “preparing blog posts for your users”. I apologize if the following seen dumb questions, but I’m struggling to get the theme installed and basically working.

1. I’ve added the fields that I want (different to the ones in your help document, which weren’t available under screen options), but haven’t worked out how they enable me to enter data – they don’t appear on a blog post. Have i missed something?

2. I want to have a number of categories, some of which will have sub-categories. Can the theme support this? How do i enter them and set up the ‘tree’?

3. I need to import data that most likely will be in Excel format in the same fields as the fields set up for the custom fields (including Category and SubCategory). I saw your previous reply on this and it doesn’t look like any of those options allow for import from Excel or a similar text based data source. Please can you advise how I can bulk import from my current site data (which is Expression Web HTML based)?

4. Initially, I want to control all new entries – my users will email me a request and I add it to the site. (I may open this up in the future but initially this is what I want). Can this be done?

Many thanks for your support.

Cheers ...Steve

Hello Steve,

2. I can see that the subcategories show at the bottom of the page, but not just the subcategories for that category. That doesn’t help me where I have lots of sub categories for each category, and the user won’t see those sub categories unless they scroll all the way down. And then they’d have to work out which sub category suits their particular category.

I am afraid, I do not understand. Do you wish to show only subcategories at the bottom (pink-white boxes)? Or show anything else? Anyway, what you see on demo is what is: on the left sidebar–list of categories + scrolling link to all categories+subcategories (displayed in pink-white boxes). Also you may add categories or subcategories or both to main menu item Businesses (or call the page as you wish) by adding them via Appearance-Menus. This is how theme coded. If you need different structure the code should be modified by you or somebody who knows to code. Or maybe I do not understand correctly your question, then, try to explain again, ok?

3. This is what i asked for in my ‘pre-purchase’ question and you said “yes. It is exactly what theme does”. The Coming Soon image I think is the default image for each post if an image isn’t loaded.

a) Ok, as I wrote “If I understand you correctly–yes. It is exactly what theme does.”-keyword here is “one-line” and I had a feeling that I might understand the whole phrase incorrectly. But after you sent me example site a couple of days ago I understand now what you mean. No, each post as shown on demo is not one-line. It comes with pic, text and so on. This is how it was designed and shown on demo preview. To change this structure, again you need to redesign a theme for might be 90%.

b). I do not find Coming Soon picture in my theme files, do you mind to send me a screenshot? It is mine, definitely? Or explain where do you see it? (In posts, in Extras, in Specials, in pages maybe)?

Thank you!

Thanks Virtuti. Whilst you have a very nice theme, it’s seeming that the theme isn’t going to do what I understood it would do from your earlier postings. What are the options for a refund?

The Coming Soon image is header-image-narrow.jpg and img1.jpg in your issued theme. Cheers ...Steve

Hello Steve, theme is what is shown on demo and described in description. As for refund, authors do not issue refunds (see Envato rules). Thank you!

I have bought your wonderful template but the plug-in I do not get installed. http://nering.volluk.info/I do not know how I get a functioning website.

Do you have a tip to move forward sincerely, Anne Martini Netherlands

Hello, thank you! Did you instal plugins by clicking “Begin installing plugins” in This theme requires the following plugins: ======list of plugins Begin installing plugins | Dismiss this notice” (only once!)? Do you see them in Dashboard->Plugins? Did you activate them? Thanks!

thanks. I installed the Required Plugins. i have activate them

But the information is: Extras CPT Install External Link Required Not Installed ! I have tried this several times and got started with a clean install again but that doesn’t help. you can see this on my site http://nering.volluk.info/wp-admin/ login: beheerder-nering Nering@nneH@rm

Hello, all 3 plugins (written by me and coming with theme package) are installed and activated. You may add content now under either “Specials” or/and “Extras” by clicking “Add New”. Thanks!

Can you please help me with this step: “Now return to Dashboard and open Home page in Pages. Add some introductory text + h1 into Tiny MCE (further–Tiny).”

I’m not sure what you mean by + h1 into Tiny MCE (further–Tiny) ?? I added some introductory text to home page in pages, but cannot find where I can type a header, which you have on your demo as “Any Business Available In Our Town Is At Your Service Here And Now!”

Thank you.

Hello, thank you! h1 means “heading”. In Tiny MCE it looks this way:

<h1>Any business available in our town is at your service here and now!</h1>

Aenean vulputate eleifend tellus. Aenean leo ligula, porttitor eu, consequat vitae, eleifend ac, enim. Aliquam lorem ante, dapibus in, viverra quis, feugiat a, tellus. Phasellus viverra nulla ut metus varius laoreet. Quisque rutrum. Aenean imperdiet. Etiam ultricies nisi vel augue. Curabitur ullamcorper ultricies nisi. Nam eget dui.

Thanks!

hi there can we make employers pay to see job seekers resumes? Thanks

Hello James, thank you for your interest! No, I made it without payment option (i.e. advertisers do it for free) but I believe there are some plugins which allow to see resumes only after payment. If you will be interested in theme as it is + you will find appropriate plugin and will need its styling according theme design feel free to contact me. Thank you again!

thanks virtuti. Yeah I need this feature, because it’s a pain in the ars to get resumes to populate the site, so I am not expecting to offer resumes consultation for free to employeers :)

Ok, try to search in WP https://wordpress.org/plugins/ free plugin first, if you’ll find something matching your needs, let me know I shall take a look (I am merely familiar with plugins, in 99.9% of my works I do not use them at all) but anyway, everything is possible to work with. If you do not find something free, try to google paid plugin, maybe you will find something best match your needs. And if you’ll find and decide to purchase the theme (and will need styling) just contact me. Wish you the best! Tanya

Hello, I have just purchased your theme but noticed it hasn’t been updated since 2014 which my developer says is not a good sign…can you please advise if you will be doing an update?

Hello, thank you! Yes, sure, I update all my themes one by one, this one is in queue. This one is good in the meantime for version 3.9 (as mentioned in description). Update will come in a couple of weeks.

hello, I updated my wordpress to the current available version, and it crashed the site and gave me this screen Fatal error: Cannot redeclare the_post_thumbnail_caption()

Well, updating for the last version was not good idea cause all widgets are currently incompatible with newer version of WP (update for newest versions will come later). But, this is aside note. It does not relate to the question you asked. Seems I can help only if I’ll look through what is going on in your WP. If you wish you can give me access to your WP (password and username of admin cause I need full access) and I shall be able to try to find out what is happening in your WP. Thanks!

Thank you for your response. We used a previous employee to solve this issue which included disabling the function on the theme and letting Wordpress’ code define the function.

We’ll look forward to a theme update for the newer WP versions.

Ok, fine. Wait for notification from Envato. Thanks!
