just purchased this for an app we want, a few quick questions:
how do we get it to prompt users like some of the other themes to install as a home icon on their device?
Is there a way to get it to resize for ipdads?
looks nice so far btw!
Hey, thanks for the purchase and the kind words!
HERO doesn’t have the prompt feature yet, but we may well add it. We’re looking into that for an upcoming theme now actually, so chances are we’ll update our previous ones with it as well.
Also, get what to resize for iPads?
Sorry I mean to get it the theme to be responsive. I was able to install a splash screen, remove the browser bars etc using the normal code with the header.php but I’m not sure how to add the prompt or to add the responsive to the rest of the theme, I might switch over to the other one you made, I love the menu and it feels good, but compared to some other themes its not giving me what I expected. My fault for not testing on ipads!
If there is a way to do this, I’m in! But I might have to jump ship.
I’m not quite following you… the theme is already fully responsive and scales all the way up to desktop sizes. Or are you’re talking about it losing responsiveness when you’re attempting to make it into a web app?
Nope, I got it mate, your right! I cant seem to activate the touch swipe plugin to work, its there but I cant seem to see how it links to the gallery I have on the home page: www.here2helpapp.com
HERO supports 2 slider plugins. One is swipe-enabled, the other is not and uses just the arrows/dots for navigation. I think you’re using the latter.
lol that makes sense! Cheers man. Your so fast to reply its worth giving you some love!
I keep running into a weird load on the home page, it seems to load in a extra long div to hold the toggle tabs, I cant seem to get more than one tab to appear on the page, but I’m sure I can fix that.
You’re talking about the toggle boxes? Check the documentation, you just need to give them different IDs.
cool – cheers
Can you contact me via email? I’m working on the web app prompt now and am really close to having it done. I would like to have you among my beta testers, if you will
awesome, sure will mate.
Hi, my WordPress site is just a blog, so can this theme show up the recent blog posts as the first page you see?
Yes, absolutely. It actually does that by default It’s the static front page that you’d have to spend a minute or two setting up.
Thanks for the reply. How easy is it to implement ad code to this theme? Also, is it possible to have an ad appear in the middle of content? And can this use my Disqus comments from the main site? Thanks.
In that sense it’s a theme like any other. Just put in the codes where you need and there’s no reason they shouldn’t work.
Great mobile theme! It worked perfectly with my desktop theme after some careful editing, but all themes require some work. Author is quick to respond and very helpful. Thank you!
Love the app!
Any way that the blog section could have a “back” link or logo when clicking on a story to read to it takes you back to the main headlines instead of clicking the top part of the app again?
Regarding the blog entries, is there a way to remove the excerpt? Most of my articles also have images attached to them and was wondering if it was possible to align the images to the left of article titles on the “read the blog section” instead of the images being on top of the article headline?
Right now the logo links back to the blog index but sure, a little back button could easily be added also.
As for your second request, if I’m understanding you right, you’d like to only have the image and title on the blog index, with the featured image and the title placed side-by-side? If so, that could be done also.
Make the purchase and send me an email with info on where exactly you’d like the back button to be placed, what size you’d like the image to be, and we’ll get it done.
Best support i’ve ever seen!
Real time conversation and fast resolution.
Five stars is not enough!
You did a great job on this theme. I’m willing to purchase it but I’ve a couple of questions:
1. Can I change the text header into logo and move the menu button aside to it, just like any menu button in iOS apps?
2. Does it support Arabic language (RTL)?
3. When I previewed your web app, it appeared as an iPhone 4/4S. (Not optimized for iPhone 5), – also the landing page takes too long.
Thank you so much!
Hey SkadiK, thanks for the kind words.
1) You can change the site name text into a logo image, yes (that’s actually explained in the documentation). And moving the menu button to the side of it won’t be an issue either.
2) I just tested it by translating the comment button to “?????”, so it seems to work beautifully (I have no idea what that means though, copy-pasted it I took a quick shot for you here: http://www.thatblognetwork.com/tf-files/comments.png
3) Can you elaborate on this? What exactly seems wrong from your end?
As for the load speed, it may well be the the distance or maybe it was just a temporary issue on the server end (though no one has even mentioned load time before).
Wow! You’re super fast.
Thanks for your response.
2. I didn’t mean the translation. I asked about aligning the theme from Right to Left. I guess your translation to Hebrew, so I didn’t understand it.
3. Here’s a snapshot from your web app. https://www.dropbox.com/s/8nmraxg7gh3iifi/Photo%20Mar%2029%2C%207%2002%2021%20AM.png
Do you see the black blank space? That’s because the web app is not optimized for the 4-inch iPhone 5 screen. I wanted to know if I can optimize it.
Anyways, I’m going to purchase it as it’s super awesome. Thank you
You can align content left/center/right when you’re writing posts/pages, yeah. And the text for comments and such can be aligned easily as well, it’s just a matter of some quick changes to style.css.
And yep, I see the black bars. I just did a quick change on the demo site; can you do me a favor and install it again and see if the black bars are still there?
It works like a charm!
And in Arabic: ??? ????
Means, You’re awesome.
Excellent I’ll submit an update to ThemeForest first thing tomorrow morning.
And the update was just approved
Thanks a lot! I’m doing the purchase!
Hi there – does this have functionality to choose precisely which pages / posts are displayed?
Hi James. Can you elaborate? Do you mean that you’d like to show only certain posts and certain pages on the front page?
No – I’d like to only have certain pages show up on the mobile version. So – if the full site has 30 pages, I’d like to pick 5 specific ones to only show on mobile.
Ah. In that case you could easily make a menu that only shows up on the mobile site (this is already explained in the documentation by the way), and then link to only the pages you want.
OK thanks – that’s very helpful. In that case I’ll probably buy it. Cheers
Hi guys. Your theme really seems gorgeous. A (maybe) silly question: what’s the main difference between Spartan and Hero?
Hey, thanks for the kind words.
I’d say the absolute biggest difference is the design. But there’s other stuff also of course, like for example Hero’s contact form has validation and its comment form behaves differently. Hero also has support for two slider plugins, little things like that.
Already an answer? Dude, you know how to win customers, eh? Nice job! OK, I’m sold to Hero, “Spartan” is a lil’ too bold for my own taste.
You know what the real problem is? I wasn’t looking for a mobile theme, I was looking for a responsive theme for photographers. And I have to say Hero has the sleekest design and user interaction I’ve seen so far. Too bad it’s mobile only. Oh well, you know what? I’ll buy it because you really deserve to be supported. And because it’s “mobile first”, no? The desktop site will suck for some more time until you decide to make a desktop theme. Please hurry!
Again, thanks for the super kind words. Those are always nice to hear And don’t you worry, we’ll keep creating themes, including desktop ones
Ok, playing with the theme, I have two small issues:
1) The responsive slider is not taking all the page width as in the “hero” demo but there are some margins left on both sides. Silde size is 1800×1200 so I guess that’s not the problem.
2) How do I remove the “Categories: uncategorized” at the bottom of static pages?
If you want to take a look the url is http://caffenero.net/nudaluce. Thanks!
1) I think you’re talking about the full screen image gallery (I don’t see a slider anywhere on the page.) The gallery will keep image proportions. If you resize your browser, you’ll notice that right away; that’s why when a browser is a certain size, it shows black bars.
2) That’s a widget you have active. Remove it from Appearance > Widgets.
Also, shoot me an email for further support. Easier to keep track of things that way.
I just purchased this theme and I’m having some issues I didn’t anticipate.
I’m building a site for a client that is highly customized and I’ve had to use a variety of divs within the content of most of the pages in order to get them to lay out the way the site’s designer intended. The client has asked for the site to be mobile-capable, but the original design only functions well on a desktop. I purchased your theme so I can create a mobile-only version of the site.
The challenge I’m having is that Hero is calling the original theme pages. Ordinarily this would be fine, but the styling I’m using is causing them to look bad on Hero.
Is there a way to create a completely separate set of pages that Hero calls and have Hero ignore all of the non-mobile pages? I would like to be able to have a different menu for the site when Hero loads on mobile and also have a different homepage. Basically I would need the two themes to be completely separate, but running from the same site.
Hey there, thanks for the purchase.
You can make a mobile-only menu, sure. Look in the documentation for that. After that you could just make new pages and use the mobile-only menu to link to them.
Do you need mobile-only posts as well?
Shoot me an email through TF. Easier to back-and-forth that way. Cheers
Ok. That worked. I didn’t see the part about changing the php file. Thanks for the quick response.
On a related note… Is it possible to have Hero show a static home page that’s different from the main theme’s static home page?
It is. Shoot me an email, I’ll need to give you a piece of code (can’t paste it here).
Hello, I installed yout theme and activated it but the problem is that the deskotop show the mobile theme and I cannot change that (also installed the plugin Any Mobile Theme, thats the first thing. Works when the main theme is active but in the docs it should be Hero.
Then it uses the custom Static page for mobile I created when I active it as in the normal desktop version… should you not have 2 different in some way??
I read in the docs but all things feels upside down…. hope to hear from you about it.
Hey Robert. You don’t need to activate Hero. Just install it and select it with the switcher plugin
And you want to have different static front pages for both you desktop theme and Hero? Am I understanding you right? If so, shoot me an email and I’ll walk you through it.
I just installed your theme and I have a few questions.
Can I bundle this theme with another theme that has Portfolio functions? (I also can’t seem to understand how to actually set up individual portfolios)
If not, is it possible to have the menu items go to another set of items. For example: Artists (on main menu), (when selected) goes to a list of Artists to choose from, then I go to each artist’s individual page where I can have their portfolio showcased…
I probably should have asked this before purchasing..so I really hope I can do the above…
Please kindly advised.
Have you checked the documentation? It’s explained there how you can make a portfolio like the one in the site demo. Essentially it’s creating pages with a certain page template and then linking to them.
About the menu, you can have one that will only be shown on the mobile theme only. How to make it is also in the documentation.
If I’ve misunderstood you on some points, please contact me via my TF profile. I’m somewhat faster to respond that way.
Hi Support, I sent you a message via your profile, did you get it?
I replied to your message days ago I just resent it.
If you’re still not receiving it then try contacting me at the email included in the documentation.
Thanks for the beautifull theme.
I have one problem though:
My website keeps being to wide on my HTC One X.
I haven’t changed anything, only the custum menu fix.
I want it the width to be fixed to 320px or something like that. I have been digging in the Style.css but with no luck.
I just checked it and I can see the problem. There has to be something else going on though since the theme is working as should on a number of test sites I have. I’d view the code to see if there have been some changes made to the code but of course I can’t do that on a touch device
But we can fix it either way. Shoot me an email through my TF profile and I’ll have an aswer ready for you. It’s easier to do support via e-mail rather than in the comments here. Cheers
I recently purchased your theme and I am encountering issues with the basic functionality. The dropdown menu will not work correctly, I have already changed the menu name in the header.php file but still it does not work. On loading a page the menu is already populated although there is no styling to it and the button does nothing. I need the menu to work exactly as it does in the demo. The responsive slider will only work with internet explorer and not chrome, firefox or safari. Please advise on both of these issues.
Hey. There must be something going on on your end since the files you downloaded files are exactly the same ones that are used on the demo.
Shoot me an email through my TF profile along with your site’s address. We’ll figure out what’s going on
Nice one. Thanks for going in and sorting it out. Problem solved
Awesome theme – we love it.
Why can I not get any of the sliders to sit full width? Even with the images you use in your demo setup?
And, how do I actually get this swipable?
I tried all three gallery/slider components that come with.
I am a php guy, but not a huge WP guy… what am I missing?
Hey HD, thanks for the kind words!
You right now have the slider in the content area, which has margins on the sides so text wouldn’t be against the screen. What you want to do is insert it into the Shortcode custom field (you’ll find more detail about embedding things in the header in the documentation under “How to: use shortcodes in featured image area” and “How to: embed videos, maps etc.”).
As for getting it to swipe, you are right now using the wrong slider (one of them is swipe ready, the other is not). And the gallery (Photoswipe) of course is swipe ready from the get go, just be sure WP adds in link=”file” when you insert the gallery (you’ll find more on that in the documentation under “How to: set up and use the gallery”).
If you’re still having issues, do contact me via my TF profile, I’ll be happy to assist.
Excellent response time, man. Awesome service. I am still not sure where the Shortcode custom field is – probably my lack of knowledge of WP rather than your nicely formatted instructions – can you help me locate where to place this code? Is it in the blog page or in PHP? I am looking through every possible screen before contacting you… but I am now officially at a loss… thanks guy…
It’s in the WP backend. When you’re editing a post/page, there’s a little tab in the top-right corner, called “Screen Options”. Slide that down and tick “Custom Fields,” after which the Custom Fields box will be visible below the area you enter your content.
Then just insert the name of the custom field into the “Name” textfield, in this case “Shortcode” (capitalization matters), the slider’s shortcode into the “Value” textarea, and click “Add Custom Field”.
Awesome, thank you. That is an obscure wordpress feature to the WP noobs. I am now on to figure out why it is not swiping… I will consult the instructions now that you’ve helped me so far. If you are ever looking for dev work on some Hollywood productions let me know… we are always hiring great developers from everywhere.
Glad to have helped Btw, I just went to your site again and the slider responds to touch beautifully now that you’re using the second slider plugin. If you just mean that you want it to actually slide and not fade, then you can change that in the plugin’s options.
Really interested to implement this for my existing kevinzahri.com wordpress website.
Do you provide integration services?
I guess it depends on what exactly you have in mind. I’ll happily offer a pointer here and there if you get stuck during setup, though if you’re after massive customizations then I’m afraid that’ll have to be on you.
Thanks appreciate the reply. Its pretty massive but I can always start small and select which pages to enable as mobile friendly? Or is it a all or nothing approach?
You can make a mobile-only menu, and then just link to mobile-only pages. That’s an option, sure.
I have just purchased this theme. Its well designed and looks exceptionally well on smartphones.
I had a few queries –
1) I have added the menu in the primary navigation but it still does not show up.
2) Is there a widget that allows me to insert Ads easily? If not then how do I insert the ads on the home, category and content pages.
Also can I get your email address so I can share my website with you?
Hey, thanks for the kind words
1) Check the documentation under ”...... menu not showing up?”
2) All of the theme’s widgets are entered into the footer. If you want ads elsewhere, I’m sure there are some plugins out there that do that. Or you can hardcode them yourself if you know how.
And you can contact me via email through my ThemeForest profile.
Thanks, the menu is showing up now. I managed to hard code the ads.
1) How do I change the pagination, at the moment it shows left and right arrows. I would to display – Older Posts and Newer Posts.
2) On the entry page, I need to display the previous and next entries.
3) Currently the entry and other pages show the tags and comments, how can I include the category as well.
1) The pagination is loaded from indcludes/pagination.php, change that to your liking
2) Look into: http://codex.wordpress.org/Next_and_Previous_Links
3) Look into: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_the_category
I would want to show the category first and the tags for the respective entry.
If you want to show the category between the comment count and tags, in loop.php, loop-misc.php and index.php, replace:
<?php the_tags(‘ ’,’ ’,’ ‘); ?>
<?php the_category(' ') ?> <?php the_tags(' ’,’ ’,’ ‘); ?>
If the code is not showing properly here, email me.
Edit: Yep, the code is not displaying properly. Email me through my TF profile and I’ll send you the code.
Thank you for creating a great theme
I’m sorry, my English language skills
But what should slide image margin.
The demonstration sites have occurred margins.
Lack of English language skills in the video attached
Hi risio. If you want the slider to appear full width above the title, then enter it into a custom field. I’ve attached an image to make it clear: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/159548794/slider.png
Thank you very much
But why you asking Custorn Fields T_T
It’s very much intentional. What goes above the title runs from edge to edge, everything else has a margin. I very much wanted content to have a strong header area, but for the text/videos/images that is placed inside the post to not run from edge to edge.
I’m sorry, my English language skills
Was delivered wrong.
Not the menu Custorn fields.
Need to install the plug-in is?
Install your theme

Thanks for your help
It’s really hard to understand, but I’m guessing you don’t know where to activate custom fields. Look at this screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/159548794/custom-fields.png
Thank you very much.
Has been resolved.
Please make a lot of good themes
I love you.
How to Align Center button link?
Shortcode buttons don’t have that built in, but you can align it center in the editor as you would any text, then switch to text view and change the “p” tags to “div”. So the end result would look something like this: [button link=”URL GOES HERE”]Button text[/button]
T_T I’m sorry, my English comprehension skills
And what is the problem?
Bah, the comments here edited out the code. The image way it is: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/159548794/button.png
Not with both or p> dev>.
Do the same like my screenshot link
It works beautifully with “div”, just put it into text view and don’t switch back into “visual” afterwards.
I’m really sorry
dev div typos, .....
Thank you for your help.
Read the blog like the menu of the demo site
Into, but should I do?
You need to contact me via email, let’s not turn it into a support forum. Additionally, I’m afraid I don’t understand your problem due to the language barrier. But if you’re don’t know how to set up the menu, check the documentation. Cheers.
I’m sorry, my English language skills

READ THE BLOG
I want to make

Please tell us the law that is displayed in the form of blog.
I’m guessing you’re talking about a static front page. Check the documentation, it’s all explained there.

Lack of reading ability manual
I’m sorry to bother you
Liking your theme! When editing a page down at the custom fields within the drop-down menu it mentions ‘toggle_page_title’. Does this mean I can hide the page titles? If so, what do I have to enter in the field next to it please?
Hey, thanks for the purchase
That custom field is probably there from you main theme. HERO uses the “Shortcode” and “FeaturedEmbed” custom fields. You can find out their purpose in the documentation.
OK. Thank you for your swift reply!
