I just bought this theme and wanted to have a “first 50 members get bronze for free”, is there any way to specify this for each individual member?
Hi, the easiest way is adding new members to the bronze (or other custom membership you’ve added) manually under the membership content editor and stop doing this after 50th registered user. Also you can set the same limits for the free membership in Appearance/Theme Options/Membership section so new users will get the same limits as in the bronze membership, then you can reset limits after the 50th user.
Thank you for the prompt answer, I will look at this, Is there any way to decide which membership they will have when registering? And also, I can’t seem to set up the payments for the memberships. Do you by any chance have any kind of guide for that?
All users get free membership by default, please set it’s limits in Appearance/Theme Options/Membership section. Please follow this screencast to set a price for membership http://www.screenr.com/98bN
Hi, Is this theme support that only after paying for registration fee, the members will be able to search or access any other users profile? I mean I want to keep the whole profile system hidden for guest, they can only see general pages and registration pages, the registered user will be able to see dating area, can able to search profile, can view profile, can request for contact details etc.
Hi, currently there’s no such option, memberships limit the number of messages, gifts, photos and chat. It’s possible to hide single profile pages for guest users.
Hello, how do you handle the city field? I see it’s an open text field where the user enters the city. However, I assume this can lead to problems. For example some cities like swedish cities have a lot of accents in their names, so people may type it differently, with accents, with no accents, etc. Also, for cities like Vienna some people may type the german name Wien.
All these may result in problems like:
-multiple cities get created in the search box drop down, while they are actually the same city.
-the list of cities can get super long if users are fro small cities, there can be many many small cities in each country.
So my main point here is: wasn’t it better to use some Google Place field where you start typing and the city is given to you? This is like Airbnb and all website location based do. To avoid people adding multiple cities.
Please let me know your thoughts.
Forgot to mention that by adding a Google Place search, you wouldn’t even need to have the country field, as the country is automatically given to you when you select a city from their suggestions when you start typing.
Hi, currently city list is based on user input. There may be issues related to different input of the same city but you can always edit them in WordPress dashboard. In this way only cities with users are shown. Thanks, i’ll consider adding Google location field instead, it would be easier and resolve the different input issue.
I understand, but if this website is going to be used worldwide with lots of countries and cities you understand I cannot go there and edit all cities to make it consistent. Also, once there are multiple cities that are actually the same city users will be spread out and won’t find each other. So I think you should improve the geo location of this theme. If your concern is for the current users of these theme that will lose functionality after the new release, you could add this option on the side, and from admin maybe people can switch if they want to use the old way based on user input, or the new geo location. Please consider adding this new functionality, it’s really important, and if you do, please let me know and I’ll buy the theme. Thanks
Also, if I go edit the cities manually, I am not sure if users that created a misspelled city will be automatically reassigned to the actual city they should belong to, or how to identify which user created that wrong city and go assign him to the actual correct city.
Thanks for details and suggestions, i’ll try to improve options related to location in the future versions.
That would be great. If you want I can get in touch privately and contribute with money if you want to add this functionality, as I would have to do pay anyway if I were to hire someone to edit the theme. So you could improve the theme and get paid for it.
Thanks, really appreciate this, but currently i’m working on the other theme update. I’ll try to improve location fields in the future versions, it may not be easy without breaking the backward compatibility with the old LoveStory versions.
I see, that’s why I was suggesting to maybe do it as a separate option so users could decide to switch if they want, or keep the default setting if it’s working for them. Without pressuring too much I just would like to know how long I should expect to wait to see if you are able to work on this improvement. I am in need to start a project and maybe I should consider hiring someone to do this customization. But I am concerned as later I won’t be able to update the theme released from you, because even if customization is done in a child theme I assume it will involve many templates or some with main functionality.
Unfortunately i can’t say for sure, but if this customization is required and you decided you use LoveStory for your project please find a developer for adding the location field. You can customize the theme framework directly – LoveStory was updated a few days ago and currently there’re no known issues.
How many files do you think a developer will need to customize in order to implement the geolocation? because if it’s many files done in a child theme, i am trying to assess how big is the risk when you release updates that the theme will break.
If you mean city field validation using Google Maps autocomplete then it’s possible by editing a few, maybe 2-3 files. Please note that it may require adding new functions and files.

i bought this product and cannot download it and it is not installing its like a read only file how do i get the program i paid for
Hi, please download it from your account on ThemeForest https://themeforest.net/downloads Then please unzip this archive and follow this screencast step by step http://www.screenr.com/c8bN
it is only in word application i did all you advised
i do feel i have gotten to the point of trying to your program, i feel disillusioned by this and it is not a template software i cannot use your what ever this is and i have had it really, your words as you call it support really is not helping me i did all u say and i am unsatisfied as a customer. all i get when i unzip ur file is a bunch icons which gives me writing but no website template this truly sucks and i want my refund
I guess you’re trying to open it with Microsoft Word editor, it’s not a document but a ZIP archive, you can unzip it with 1 click – please right-click it and select “Extract All”. This archive contains documentation, licensing and lovestory.zip file that you can install in WordPress as shown on this screencast http://www.screenr.com/c8bN
Please consider changing your review because this theme works as advertised, unzipping files is not related to the theme functionality and it’s a basic option available on any computer.
If i cannot load the program do i pay to have one of your specialist do it if so i will consider it
@Zoxee people like u make me smile this is an open forum to express ones ideas or concerns i wont be bothered with u, focus on your own biz and not mine i paid for something thats not working so and i did not buy it from u thanks,
I can install it for you for free, but please make sure that you have a WordPress site, it’s required for installing LoveStory since this is a WordPress theme, just making sure that you understand this.
If you have a WordPress site please send a link to it with login credentials via email and i’ll install LoveStory (following the same steps as on these screencast http://www.screenr.com/c8bN) and import sample content, you will get the same layout as on the live preview.
I can help you to install LoveStory and I have to fix it’s bugs if you find any, but if you have no experience with WordPress you may need someone who will help you to manage your website after the installation.
airdreanne get lost with your shitty comments. If you’re to dumb to know exactly what you buy and why you bought it in the first place then keep away and go learn some manual job instead of busting the author’s balls. I would love to use the theme but unfortunately can’t afford it at the moment and you come here after buying it and start insulting the author’s efforts his intelligence as well as mine to be frank.
I am currently having trouble with the live chat feature and the online/offline feature as well. I can not get the live chat to work and I am assuming its because there is no way to show who is online or offline. I have made sure that sessions in enabled and it still wont work. How does a member show if they are online or offline and how do i get the live chat to work. Thank you
Hi, both of these options are based on sessions so I think that this issue is related to the session settings. Please send temporary WP access in PM and i’ll check this issue on your site.
I just emailed you a temporary login and password for WP access. Thank you
I am very interested by your plugin

please thank you
Thanks for suggestion, I’ll consider adding these features, but currently it’s not possible without customizations. If they are required for your site you can find a developer for custom work so it will be possible to add them to your site.
consider adding these features when?
no contact form plugin in your template?
You can use any third-party contact form plugin for embedding contact forms into the page content, for example https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/
Thanks for suggestions, but unfortunately I can’t guarantee adding features by request, although I always consider them during development of the next version. If some features are not implemented yet and you need them please find a developer for custom work.
Hi how are you
We wait with patience your new version

such as group creation, man and woman
freeman 7 days, to further discuss or sent messages, or view profiles etc …. Paying for a premium membership with full access, for example for a period of 365 days.
fixed but floating menu as the scrollbar?
I’m sorry, but I can’t quite understand what you mean. It’s already possible to make membership free for women, set free trial for men, sell memberships via WooCommerce and limit the membership period. If some additional options are required for your site and it’s urgent please find a developer for custom work.
Hello it is possible to make the registration fee for men and free for women?
Sure, it’s possible to disable membership options for both men and women so registration will be free and there will be no limits.
Before going to buy this template (i come from a bad experience with another one)i would like to know if i could personalize profile lists and search in a different way. I’m going to build an LGBT (gay & Lesbian) dating site but i’ve man gay passive, active, bisexual.. .I need that this data could be see in the profile preview (scroll line) and searchable. These personalization are easy to do or i’ve to modify the code?
It’s possible to add custom fields of a few types (select, text, string) and show these fields in the search form, also it’s possible to change the default list of genders in the theme configuration file. Please note that the short profile preview text is based on the default fields and if you want to change it then it requires customizations.
First of all let me congratulate you on this great theme very complete. I just wanted to know if it is possible to add to the famous chat emoticons to give a more pleasing appearance.
I have also seen that when I enter the chat with someone and hold a conversation to get out of the chat conversation is deleted. Is there any way that conversations are maintained and that users can delete them at will.
Currently there’s no such option, but it’s possible with a simple code change. You can send temporary WP access in PM and i’ll enable WordPress smileys in chat messages, also they will be added in the next theme version.
Chat messages are real-time, they are not stored in the database and only 3 latest messages are cached. Please try using private messages for this purpose, they are more like emails.
Hi, i have a problem, i try to make header transparent and when i do it, underneath i can see gray bar with buttons sign up and fb, can you please explain me how to remove it, i cant catch it with code inspector to view code…
Hi, please try adding this code to the custom CSS field in Appearance/Theme Options/Styling section:
Hello, yes, this string solve problem, thank you!
Am i able to remove the built in membership options so that i can use s2member?
Currently there’s no integration with this membership plugin, so it will not be able to recognize and limit the number of messages, photos, gifts etc. It may only limit registrations.
I understand that, but you have not answered my question lol.
Can i disable your membership options?
I only want to limit registration and give a global user role with unlimited messages etc…..
Also, is there the option to add extra fields to the user profile page?
1. If you don’t need these limits then sure, you can disable the built-in options and just limit registrations using third-party membership plugins. Please note that third-party plugins may have their own design and may require additional styling.
2. Yes, it’s possible to add custom fields of a few types (select, string, text).
Hi Themex. I finally can afford the Theme. I will install it on a WP site along WooCommerce, create and configure the Products and sycnchronize them with Woo. Could you please finalize the install and set up the whole check out process as it is on your demo site ? That would be really nice of you. Cheers.
Sure, I can help you to import the demo content to set the same layout as on the live preview, also you can import it if you follow this screencast step by step https://www.screenr.com/c8bN If you want to sell memberships you should set the free membership limits and then just link each membership with WooCommerce product.
Hi my friend.
Great. But as i said, the problem would not be to import sample data, install Woocommerce, create 3 levels and 3 corresponding products and connect them. What i would like you to do is set up those three screens as i have no clue how to set them up according to your demo.
Or maybe you can tell me how ? if i buy the theme it has to be up and running by tomorrow because i have big email lists of friends which would register immediately and pay a fee.
Or if you prefer i will send you the credentials of the WP site and you can do it on your all own if you think it’s faster. All cosmetic adjustments will be done by me afterwards. All i need is that membership levels stand and the checkout processes for the different options function flawlessly.
Thanks for details. These pages (registration, checkout and cart) should look the same by default, you don’t have to change anything. If you have any issues with importing demo content please send temporary WP access in PM with details about these issues and I’ll check them.
I just emailed you the credentials through your profile
Just asking, have you already started ? Didn’t get any feedback from you yet.
I’m sorry for the late reply, I’ve just replied via email.
Thanks for this great item.
One thing, when resetting password visitors are redirected to the Wordpress login page. Is there a way to avoid that or how to be able to send the password via email without the resetting link ? Just a password reminder as I don’t want them to be redirected to the Wordpress page.
Thanks, glad you like it! WordPress redirects users to the back-end profile page by default, but it’s possible to change this behavior with a simple code snippet, please try adding it at the end of academy/functions.php file in Appearance/Editor section http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/82955/wordpress-redirect-after-password-reset
you have no interest in improving it , in a similar way to the front-end to avoid reaching the wordpress backend ?
Thanks, I’ll consider to change this redirect in the next version, if it’s urgent I can change it directly on your site using this code snippet http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/82955/wordpress-redirect-after-password-reset Please send temporary WP access in PM and I’ll make this change.
Hi, How can I translate field list in new profil option ?
Please try using this plugin for translating any static text without code changes https://wordpress.org/plugins/loco-translate/
Hello, how i can change the word “man” and “woman” for the words of my language? I tried to change it with the plugin “Loco Translate” and not work. Can you tell me where is the file that i need modify? Thanks!
Please avoid editing the theme files directly – these changes may be erased because of update. If your WordPress is not in English please add your language in Loco Translate/LoveStory section and try editing it, changes should be applied.
Hi, Can I integrate countries menu to this theme? I am planning to use it for matrimonial services.
Hi, please let me know what you mean about the countries menu, if you mean search it’s already possible to select country in the search form http://themextemplates.com/demo/lovestory/profiles
Hi, nice theme.
1) I want to know politely if the theme is compatible / tested with the latest version of wordpress, the 4.6.1 version of wordpress. If compatible, please update the information currently reported, and version compatibility, in fact I read “Software version 4.5.x WordPress” whereas the latest version is 4.6.1 wordpress
2) I would also like to know how it gets to update the theme once installed, that is, how to make subsequent updates.
1. Currently there’re no known issues with WP 4.6.1.
2. All updates are free, you can always get the latest version from your downloads on ThemeForest and replace the current one in Appearance/Themes section.
Perfect, thank you. But why not gently changes the indication of the wordpress version number in the details page, from 4.5.x to 4.6.1, here at ThemeForest? Thank you again. Best regards.
I’ve just changed it in the theme description, thanks.
Perfect, thank you.
