Hi, your “Moon – Photography Portfolio” theme was last updated on Jan 28, 2019. Since then a lot has changed in Wordpress. You have bundled Advanced Custom Fields PRO which is totally outdated, and is with many bugs since last update happened years ago. Your theme also comes with many JSON files and 100s of JavaScripts(.JS) files that might need critical updates. Do you think the theme is still safe and not due a comprehensive update even after 30 months of deep sleep????

Bundled plugins are updated and can be downloaded from pinpreme.com by registering your theme purchase code. This way you don’t need to update the theme every time a bundled plugin is updated.

Theme is just a set of styles, not sure why you think it would not be safe – Wordpress core is the one that’s processing all the data, theme has no access to any of that and only styles the output of the wordpres core

Thanks a lot! These words from the developer means a lot and are quite comforting. There are a few recommended plugins I do not wish to install and activate but the Install Nag never goes away even after clicking on the cross(x), it just comes back immediately after refreshing the page. Any code to disable the nag like this: (This theme recommends the following plugins: One Click Demo Import, SoundCloud Shortcode and WooCommerce….Begin installing plugins)?

Never mind. I got it at line 28 at theme function file: /inc/activate-plugins.php that needed to comment.

Hi. In a previous message, you stated: “I have also a cool new site map for images lined up in my updates roadmap, which will allow you to generate an images site map and even pick images you want to be removed from indexing”

I’m assuming this is the “Images Sitemap Builder” within the theme. I have uploaded the xml sitemap generated this way to Google Search Console twice now, but it will only index the posts, not the individual gallery photos within the post. It doesn’t even recognize that there are images in the gallery of that post. I have tried this both with the “protect images from copying” option turned on and off, but it won’t index the images.

Is this a known issue with the theme, or is there a way to overcome it? Thanks.

I am also looking for an answer to this question provided previously:

I would like to publish a video post. With Youtube videos this is easy and no problem. But I cannot realize it with a video from my own media library. Also in the documentation I did not find any information about this. The video should appear in the right panel in full width. Could you please help me?

I bought this theme long ago, but the project didnt get though. Now as I installed it (latest version) on PHP 8.0.x or 8.1.5 it didnt work with or without nginx . Got wordpress error. In 7.4.29 it dont threw this error. Any idea? Thank you

Hello Guys, I have just bought the theme, and I wanted to activate it with my purchase code, but I keep getting a message in which I can’t access the theme settings. Can you help me please ?

Hi, hmm that’s weird, what kind of message are you seeing?

Hey Osetin I have looked in the old comments if I could find a similar problem in the meantime, and there was another user to whom you have advised to install all the required plugins, such as ACF, in order to be able to access the theme settings. And it worked like a charm. Thanks a lot. It was helpful three years ago, and It was helpful now as well :D

Hi there, the licence key you gave me it says I can’t use it because it has been using by another domain. But how come it has been using by another domain when I activated the theme few days for for mypixelphotography.com without any issue? Now I moved to AWS and installed theme theme after moving to new hosting and failed to activate? Themes are supposed to have a lifetime license. Right? I sent you an email as well

Yes, you have a lifetime license. But you can only use it on one website at a time. You can manage your licenses on pinsupreme.com by creating account

On the photo gallery posts the sorting feature does not seem to work in the front end. The photos are displayed in a random order.Has anyone noticed this? It is a bit weird in a very good theme overall.

Hmm, can you provide a screen recording to explain the issue? Also check your browser console to see if there are any JS errors, might be caused by other plugins

anekco Purchased

I checked the browser console. There are no JS errors there or any other errors there. Please see here : https://prnt.sc/2185qer and https://prnt.sc/2185vs2

had it in the basket until i noticed last update was 2019. To bad looks like what i was looking for

Why would it stop you from buying it? It’s a good thing that you don’t need to worry about updates and incompatibility. We build our themes following WordPress standards and don’t rely on third party plugins too much, that allows our themes to just work, without worrying about updates or some third party plugin that theme relies on to get broken…if you check our demo – it runs on the latest Wordpress version and php 8 with no issues whatsoever…

Makes sense, when I purchase products from this market the first thing I look at is latest updates because In the beginning I realized Envato allowed old products to continue for sale years after development and they are garbage and the no return policy just steams me. So when there are no updates it means the product is abandoned and just a cash cow for the developer, I dont mind paying for a good product and getting a license to use legally But I do mind waisting my dollars. I purchase loads of products and dont have time to read each ones description about how solid they are, it’s the update that I look at. I would like to use your product but I have made my point.

Thanks for letting me know

I want up video in post,

Are you planning to update this theme soon?

Is something broken?

Hello, I like this theme. Are you planning to update this theme soon?

Hi, is something broken? What kind of updates are you looking for?

I need to re activate my old purchase code that is not being used anymore. How can I re use this same key since the other domain and website no longer exist?

You can manage your activations on pinsupreme.com by creating account

The homepage interface will be exactly like this, right? https://prnt.sc/13gxbdm

Hi. which is the last version of this theme? I don’t know if I have to upgrade it. Thanks.

On the list categories page template, what is the easiest way to customize the buttons? Everything says “View Portfolio.” I would like for different sections to have different button texts.

please create a support request at osetin.ticksy.com and our specialist will be happy to assist

Thank you

How do you hide the details button on post pages?

nevermind :)... .content-middle-hidden .content-middle-show-btn { display: none; }

Oops, ignore this.

Good day. Unfortunately, it is very inconvenient to use with a mobile site due to the ill-considered design in the following points. (I watched the demo site ) 1. Single recording view with Mobile Layout Style Default: It is impossible to display a photo completely on the page horizontally on a blank screen: Either there will be a preview at the bottom, or at the top of the browser panel, which appears when you click on the link to disable the preview. Why mobile previews? What’s the point in it? It makes no difference to swipe a preview or swipe a photo. No gain in speed or convenience. 2. Single view of the record with the settings Mobile Layout Style Version 2: In order to see the photo in the maximum disclosure, you need to go down the gallery page, select it, and then go up the record as it will be displayed at the top. Why so ???? But even choosing it is impossible, since on small tiles the download button overlaps all the others. Have you tried this mode yourself? Did you find it comfortable? Sorry for my English, I had to use Google.

p.s. A very beautiful and interesting theme, but the mobile look spoils everything.

I didn’t mean to offend you, I just asked questions. For example, here’s how to view a photo on a photo station from Synology: https://monosnap.com/file/lFjFjX0ALlw2zbQe2bWhVYv96PANXE https://monosnap.com/file/yS8DlSjPJhDLUlZb18DLeI5b1H25z9 https://monosnap.com/file/8wGn0w3Qn55DbLT7XBZia2LP11kUwm These are screenshots from iPhone 7. As you can see, there are no browser panels here. Agree that this is a clean, beautiful view and a really large photo size.

Notice how the control panel is made – two small icons on the right and left. The preview is hidden by clicking on the photo. And that’s all, the screen is not busy with anything.

I don’t like that look, I prefer that one I’ve built in my theme, as I said before you are free to purchase a theme that you like more.

Above was the following question: I am using mobile version 2, it is really awesome but I am facing one problem when i click on the gallery images at the bottom of the page, the full screen image opens at the top. Is this behaviour expected? I have the same situation on the demo site and the same question, but I have not received an answer.

I bought it but it shows on my site “Site is using a trial version of the theme. Please enter your purchase code in theme settings to activate it or purchase this wordpress theme here”. Do you know why??

Hmm, have you installed the latest version of the theme, there were some changes in Wordpress which require you to have the latest theme and plugin version? Also make sure you have the latest version of Advanced custom fields pro plugin, which comes with a theme, you have to download the latest version of the plugin by registering your purchase code at pinsupreme.com/users/sign_up and that should get rid of the issue.

Yes Osetin, it’s weird. I will do what you suggest and I will get back ASAP. Thank you very much!! :)

Itttttttttttttttt Worrrrrrrrrrrrrrrkedddddddddddddd!!! Thank you reaaaaally very much!!!! You rock!!... I installed the ACF Pro and the latest theme version (5.02 to 5.06) ===> It’s perfect again!!!
