Hello I want to purchase your theme, but I have two questions. 1. I wanted to add a section on the top of the homepage, ie the featured books you already have would be the second panel on the Homepage. 2. Can you add background images to the plain panels that you have?

Regards Anthony

Hi Anthony,

Please find our response in this document—> http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=02783575061417469656


What size are the covers on the slide show?

Thanks for your query. You can create a ticket at meanthemes.com/support and our support staff will be able to assist you. Thanks.

Question: Is this theme customizable in the theme customizer or does it require third party plugins to customize it? If the latter, do these third party plugins require payment for premium offerings? Is there a learning curve to customize the theme and how difficult would you say it is to customize? Thank you.

Hi there,

Yes, we are using WordPress theme Customizer for all theme settings and have created a custom post type for books in a separate plugin that comes with this theme (just in case you want to keep the books if you install another theme later). There is no third party plugin required.

You can build your Homepage quickly with our simple Homepage Items.

The theme ships with its full documentation PDF. But if you need help with anything, we’re always there to help at www.meanthemes.com/support/ ;)

After updating to the latest version of wordpress, your theme Preface seems to have lost the short code editor. I can’t find it and none of the shortcodes are working. Neither is the link in the footer. I uploaded your theme all over again but that didn’t help. http://stevensandor.com/

A number of themes have been broken by this latest wordpress update, this one included.

Have reached out to your support last week but have not heard back. I sent another message today. Then saw “If you don’t hear from us within those 48 hours – we definitely haven’t received your request, contact us via the marketplace that your bought the theme from and we’ll get everything sorted for you” I am reaching out here to confirm you received these ticket requests. thank you!
