Hi Ruben,

We just purchased the GoodWork theme but are unable to upload it to Wordpress. We are using Wordpress 3.8, but for some reason after we install it under the “Install Themes” tab, a window pops up saying “Are you sure you want to do this?” It then tells us it was unable to upload.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Please see my previous comment.

Regards, Ruben.

Sorry, i thought that it was the last comment, but not..

The issue that you’re having doesn’t have anything to do with the theme or WordPress version. You are simply installing the wrong zip archive (make sure that when you download the package you also unzip it until you find the manual, theme archive, etc..).

Hi Ruben, We uploaded only the theme folder and it seemed to install fine. We also installed the 3 required plugins. However we are unable to access the Page Builder tool. Can you advise on how to get access to that? We also tried uploading the xml files to try and work with your layout but the page builder tool does not show up with those either.

Thank you

Never mind, figured it out!


We are trying to put a small contact form in our footer with only one editable box for email address and one subscribe button. However it seems that by default the contact form displays 3 boxes: name email address, and message. Is there any easy code we can add to hide the boxes we don’t want?

Thank you


The contact form is as you see it. If you want special forms, please use custom plugins, such as Contact Form 7.

wow i love that theme!!!!!

i dont understand how i change the font color in the revolution slider slide? :(((

that with the 404 i got the error…because the seo urls. its now ok.

only how i chance the color off the font in the slider?


To change the color from the slider, you need to know HTML. The slider allows you to input pure HTML, so you need to learn some basic tags and CSS inline stylining in order to work this out.

great ….thank you so much!

I have to say, I’m quite disappointed Ruben. Actually, very very disappointed.

I understand that this is a one man show and a delay after a major release is not perfect, but somewhat inevitable. But now it has been since April 16th…two months since the release. Not to mention that as a developer you should probably be testing the beta versions out to tweak stuff before the final release. Aside from that, you have been making comments that it will be done “soon” since the WP 3.9 release.

You even commented in response to woowoodengy’s comments two weeks ago, you said you’d be updating it “within a week at the beginning of June”.

It’s now June 11th and your support area and this site say you’ll be unavailable until June 17th. Everyone needs a holiday, but for you to plan it when you’ve promised other people a GoodWork update…kind of a bad miss.

We love the site, we really dig what it can and has done for our business…but this is a really bad deal that I can’t update to the latest WordPress.

Appreciate your response and addressing the issue. I did want to update as the new options with image resizing would be extremely nice to have. I look forward to the update. Hope you had a nice holiday. Rick

I don’t see the update? I check ticksy support area for info but nothing there either. Is it ready as you thought?

Hi Rick

The update will be shown here, please be patient, because it won’t come sooner. It should be online this week.

Regards, Ruben.

We are 100% echoing exactly what rglohre said above! Could not said better. This is REALLY disappointing!


sorry is it not possible to add a slider to portfolio page?


I am sorry, but no, this is not possible.

Good morning

This theme have some issues using it with WP 3.9, specially if i want to use included visual composer since is a very old version, in pages or posts when i try to modify a text block i can´t see the text in visual mode, also, i can´t install Visual Composer in my end since all looks very weird if i´m not using the modified version.

I need to know how to install a newer version of Visual Composer with no issues. Thanks.


There’s a big notice on the item’s description stating that the theme doesn’t work on WP3.9 yet.

An update is already in works and half done and it will be published asap. Until this, downgrade your WordPress installation.

Regards, Ruben.

Hey Ruben, I like the theme. I purchased it knowing that it was not upgraded to 3.9, but it sounded as if it was almost ready… but you are still reporting it as half done. Could you please give us a realistic completion date of ALL DONE? I think if you set a realistic date and stick to it you would help a lot of customers.

Pace, Jerry

Hi Jerry

Yes, i can provide a realistic date, it should be this week. I finished improving Ignition Deck integration, included the latest version of the Revolution Slider, improved the code and now i only have to improve the portfolio handling and finish up with the Visual Composer – this is the hardest part, but i hope that tomorrow or at least Thursday i will be completely done and push the update for review.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Regards, Ruben.

Do you see any issues mixing crowdfunding with an online store using your template? Also, if someone selected to support a crowd fund project and at the same time selected to purchase an item from the online store would both appear within the shopping cart or would they be different transactions?

I’m assuming we would use WePay for the backend credit card processing for both the crowd funding and the online store.

Thanks, Tom

Here’s an article about this news: http://ignitiondeck.com/id/ignitiondeck-future/ (search for “woocommerce” word in it).

Looks like your updating the demo of the Goodwork template. When will the new updates for Crowdfunding be available? Also, I have a mockup of our new business model using your Goodwork template with the Crowdfunding plug-in. I would like to send you a link and see if you have any comments before we move forward to make sure we can do what we’re envisioning. Can I send you a link offline as I don’t want to publish the link on the public forum? Thanks, Tom

Hi Tom

The updates are already available. We are not showcasing them right now because we have in plan to create a dedicated demo for the CrowdFunding features. But they are there.

Send an email with your mockup, but notice that what you see is what you get. If you see a different layout than Goodwork you might need to hire someone to finish the job.

Regards, Ruben.

Hi, I have update the theme and worpdress. When i edit page with “Icon text box” i cant see my links in “Icon URL (Link)”. The link is visible in classic mode like that : [vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/1"][vc_icon_text title="Titre" icon="krown-icon-plus-1" style="one" background="#ffffff" target="_self" href="http://www.my-link.fr/"]Le contenu à dévoiler se place ici, changez ce texte par le votre[/vc_icon_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row] Is it a bug or what is wrong ?

Hi Ruben

Just installed the update for the Theme and gone through the process of re-engineering some of the pages as was expected, however I’ve discovered that the Project Carousels have stoped working on one of the pages. I was using them to display galleries of Pictures loading with ajax any suggestions why this might be the case? page in question is: http://www.rockinghamcastlehorsetrials.com/gallery-of-images-for-rockingham-international-horse-trials/


Dave Mitcheson

Hi Dave

Your site is full of 301 redirections.. Maybe that’s the case? Whenever an AJAX blog item or portfolio project tries to load, it gets a 301 issue, then it moves. Well, the problem is that the redirect might break the loading. Until the redirects are resolved, i’m not sure if i can debug this further.

Please post a ticket with more details about this on the support forums and we’ll continue the discussions there: http://rubenbristian.ticksy.com

Regards, Ruben.


Where can i change the “View all portfolio” text?

It is the latest projects shortcode.

Thank you.


The change can be written when you create the shortcode. There is a field called something like “all portfolio text”.

If you have any other issues or questions regarding the theme, please post a ticket on the dedicated support forums: http://rubenbristian.ticksy.com

Regards, Ruben.

Hi, ok – will post other issues in the forum. Check the shortcode:

[rb_section_title title="Se noen av våre prosjekter" icon="con-picture-1" border="true" margin="35" width="1/1" el_position="first last"] [rb_projects type="Prosjekter" no="4" cols="four" style="one" all="true" ajax="false" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

Can’t find “View all portfolio” in here? Do i have to add an attribute?

Please add it via the Visual Composer. Also, note that there a new version of the theme 3.0, about which you can read by reading the updating guide.

If anyone is interested in their portfolio sorting based on title follow these steps.

1. Open file /public_html/wp-content/themes/goodwork/template-portfolio.php

2. Edit Line 55

                $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => $v_filter == 'true' ? -1 : 12, 
                       'offset'=> 0,
                       'paged' => $paged,
                       'portfolio_category' => $custom_cat,
                       'post_type' => 'portfolio');
Replace With
                $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => $v_filter == 'true' ? -1 : 12, 
                       'offset'=> 0,
                       'paged' => $paged,
                       'portfolio_category' => $custom_cat,
                       'orderby' => 'title',
                       'order' => 'ASC',
                       'post_type' => 'portfolio');

3. Save and you should be set!

Thanks Ruben for a well designed product!

Thanks for the tip Wesley! :)

Hi @RubenBristian.

I have a question for you.. Would be possible that you consider for next release, create a field in the portfolio admin for display more than 12 items.?

Everytime i have to update the theme, i have to change this on the code editor.

And one more time, thanks in advanced for this great theme… !!

Best regards.

Hi Ruben

Great update. I had no major problems upgrading, your guide works well.

I have 1 minor issue. The breadcrumb looks wierd now after upgrade, its aligned right and its clamped together. On your demo the breadcrumb neither work.

Are you fixing this soon? Now you are aware of it, if nobody else reported this bug.

Regards Nick

Hi Nick

I am really glad that you managed the update without any issues.

About the breadcrumbs, thanks for the heads up, i will fix this bug in the next update which i’ll release today, so hopefully it will be pushed online within 24hrs.

Regards, Ruben.
