What an excellent theme! Does it work with actual PHP and Wordpress versions?

Hi,

It should work fine with recent PHP and WordPress. Let us know in case you will have any problems.

Best, Vladimir

Hello pixel-industry. Thank you for your feedback! I doesn´t work wll. The delivered revslider plugin is outdated and cannot be activated (fatal error). The demoimport (theme+slider) does not import any image files (also when downloading them is enabled). Content creation is not comfortable. Only shortcodes and text rows. Hard to get an overview there. If this theme will be recreated with a pagebuilder (elementor, etc), all demoimport works, and all plugins are uptodate, i would think about buying it. Regards, Dennis

Hi Dennis,

The theme is built with shortcodes, this is true and maybe it takes more time to build page however demo content is provided with theme. Regarding slider, we provide most recent version of slider in our support forum so this shouldn’t be a problem. Regarding demo content and images. As stated on theme description page, images are not included in download package because we are not allowed to redistribute stock images. Theme should work just fine and if you (or anyone) has any problems, we are happy to check it out.

Hope this helps.

Best regards, Vladimir

Hi – I have had this theme installed for a client and it has been great. We just installed an SSL certificate and I noticed that there seems to be something wrong with how the automated buttons in your theme work.

An extra ‘http:’ is being added to the link, which breaks it.

http://awesomescreenshot.com/0255zkbn06

Examples of where this is happening are on the home page – https://daviescpa.com/ – in the ‘services’ boxes and on the resources page – https://daviescpa.com/resources-for-your-business/ – where I’ve used the button shortcode to insert buttons near the top of the page.

Is there a fix for this? I have version 1.6 installed, so I will check on an update (probably should have done that first!). I would appreciate your help with this.

Thanks, Carol

Hi Carol,

Version 1.6 is latest version.

The problem lies in function that automatically adds http:// to all URLs that are added in Services element.

I will send you new Services element if you register on our support forum and open topic with this question (just copy/paste it). I suggest that you check whole website in case you find same problem somewhere else so we can prepare fixed files for you.

visual composer, is there a theme? home page, we can organize as we want?

Hi,

We are not using Visual composer in this theme but we have our own Shortcode manager. It’s not page builder but you can use it to arrange content on page as you wish.

Vladimir

Is it flexible so as Visual composer? Can you see the screen or demo? I want to make sure you buy

Please contact us through from on our profile page and I will send you screenshots in E-Mail.

HI,

I just installed the theme and the demo content, but there seems to miss the “Blog Alternative” layout. How can I enable that?

Hi, You can change between blog styles in Appearance -> Theme options -> Blog. Option you are looking for is “Meta position”.

For additional questions please register on our support forum.

Hello,

does the theme support WPML plugin?

Thank you

Hi,

Thank you for interest. Theme isn’t tested with WPML but I don’t see any reasons why it shouldn’t work.

Vladimir

Hello,

I’m really interested in purchasing your awesome template, but I have one question: Am I allowed to change the copyright after buying?

Kind regards, Tipto

Hi Tipto,

Yes you are allowed to change anything, even copyright or any appearance of our company name.

Vladimir

Hello Vladimir! I love this theme so much, but I have a little problem. Where can I change the services slug? This is my link: http://xxlponyva.hu/services/jarmuponyva/ and I’d like to use this: http://xxlponyva.hu/szolgaltatas/jarmuponyva/. I found in post-types.php this ‘rewrite’ => array(‘slug’ => ‘szolgaltatas’), but its not working. Thank you for your help!

Hi and thank you for buying.

I am not sure why it’s not working but you changed slug at the right place. Did you tried to re-save Permalinks? Try to set Default then revert to one you want to use so WordPress can update .htaccess file.

Vladimir

Hi, Ok, it’s working now with permalinks change! Thanks a lot! Have a nice day!

I want to get my money back! I cant use this template – shortly after install my page was infected by spam bots / viruses. My hosting provider disabled it… I know, that this come from theme bugs or so, cause used only few regular plugins (the same plugins works perfectly in my other projects). With who I can contact to get support / refund?

Hi,

I am really sorry that you had bad experience with our theme but I assure you that our theme doesn’t have backdoor or security issues. WordPress it’s self has vulnerabilities sometimes same as plugins you install so you can’t blame our theme. When you install our theme you need to install plugins that we recommend and those plugins might have vulnerabilities as those plugins are public and we are not in control of code quality of these.

Also every theme is reviewed by ThemeForest review team before it’s released which means we need to follow certain coding standards.

I suggest that you reinstall WordPress and update all plugins to latest version. Reinstall theme in case that code is injected in theme files.

Also, we can help you in discovering what happened on your web if you register on our forum and give us more details about security breech you had.

Again, I am really sorry for your bad experience. If refund is you final decision, you can contact ThemeForest support.

Best, Vladimir

Hi and thank you for the great theme. My problem: For the portfolio I’ve choosen the »portfolio 4 alternative« style and I want to have the same style for portfolio-categories, but it’s different. How can I change it?

Hi Vladimir, thanks for your answer. Unfortunately I can’t find »Portfolio category page style« there. Page ends with »Related Post Section«. Maybe I have an older version of your theme?

You probably have older version of the theme. Latest version is v1.6 so please updated theme (you can find update instructions in Documentation).

Therefore I needed a Child Theme. Now it works! Thanks for your support.

Hi, shortcode TEAM MEMBERS: is there a way of removing name and title from above the picure and place under the image? Client wants to show close portraits of members… Tnx

Hello,

Yes, there is a way of moving the title under the image.

Open up wp-content/plugins/metropolis-core/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php.

Find the following code starting at about line 1149:


<section class='team-info'>
    <img src="{$featured_image}" alt="{$image_alt}" />
    <div class="title-position">
        <div class="title">            
            <h6>{$post->post_title}</h6>
        </div>
        {$job_position}
    </div>
</section>
<section class='team-cv'>
    <p>{$post->post_content}</p>
</section>

Modify the code so it looks like the following:

<section class='team-info'>
    <img src="{$featured_image}" alt="{$image_alt}" />
</section>
<div class="title-position">
    <div class="title">            
        <h6>{$post->post_title}</h6>
    </div>
    {$job_position}
</div>
<section class='team-cv'>
    <p>{$post->post_content}</p>
</section>

Style the title-position class using the css codes so it looks the way you want it to look like.

This is prob nothing to do with you, but the site I used this theme on is constantly being hacked. For some reason it’s only this site. Have you heard anything similar? Could it be plugins making it easy for hackers? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thx

Hello,

As you assumed, the hacking attempts don’‘t have anything to do with the theme installed on your Wordpress.

I can advise you to download the iThemes security plugin and change the URL of the wp-admin area. Also, this plugin has more useful features which can help in your Wordpress protection.

Check out the following link: http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/a-guide-on-using-the-ithemes-security-plugin--cms-20892. Make sure to create a backup before doing any changes.

Also, we are not responsible for any damage or data loss which occurs by using the plugin as it’s a 3rd party plugin.

Robert

Good day tell me how to remove it at all? To text of news was the entire width. http://prntscr.com/6n9czj

Anyway, glad you’ve found a solution.

Hi and thank you for purchasing our theme. Can you please register on support forum and post a question. Our support team will help you with this.

Vladimir

Does the short code that’s packaged with the website includes code for embedding YouTube and Vimeo videos?

Is it responsive short code?

Hi,

WordPress by default has embeding options so you can use native support. You can read more about it here.

Could you tell me how to enable comments in pages? In blog posts it shows up fine in pages I check allow comments box, I can make a comment in control panel, but on the front end the comment fields do not show up. I have been told that it is the theme that has those disabled. Please let me know how to enable them in pages. also have the same problem as “zionachievers ” neeed an update to rev slider.

We’ve had our website up for 6 months now, I’ve place the google analytics code in the theme options > footer > Google Analytics ID. Every month it tells us that we have had 0 visits. So I applied the Google Analytics dashboard plugin and still nothing. Do you have any suggestions?

Hello,

Could you please post a link to your website so I can check if the code displays properly in the source code?

Robert

www.crossenergy.net

Hello,

I’ve checked your website page source and the analytics code is inserted correctly. Do you have any informations about your visits in the real time tracking section in google analytics?

Also, take a look at this topic: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120925001756AAglVhA

Thanks

Can you please contact us through contact form and I will send you latest version of Revolution slider. That should solve the problem.

Vladimir

how can I control the speed of the (shortcode) text Sliders?

no text slider

Hi,

To change the speed on the text slider, open wp-content/plugins/metropolis-core/includes/shortcodes/shortcodes.php and go to line 1647:

scroll: 1,<pre /></pre>

and change that line to:

scroll: { items:1,duration: 1000},

Where 1000 is the time delay between slides. Change it as it suits you.

Robert

Thanks Robert, I found the code in line 3293
