Great looking themes. Regarding Fox Lifestyle (four ridiculous questions);

1. Can I upload custom fonts (otf or ttf)?

2. What’s the difference between:

https://thefox.withemes.com/lifestyle/ https://thefox.withemes.com/lifestyle/home-elementor/

—looks like some style differences. The Elementor version loses the hero image and adds thumbs around it. Is that locked in?

3. Are there options for Post layout, i.e., losing the right-side widgets (Categories, Popular etc?

4. Will building this in Elementor Pro allow for the usual array of style options?

Thx!

Hi chas68,

Thanks for your interest.

1/ Yes but it’s *woff & *woff2 formats for web fonts. There’s many free online tools to convert from OTF or TTF to those formats.

2/ The frontpage is built from Fox’s built-in builder. It has a slider so you see the hero image.

The home-elementor is built from Elementor. It hasn’t had the corresponding slider element yet (but we’re planning to add in the future) so we use a post group to replace this.

3/ Yes

4/ Maybe there’s a difference in terminologies. Could you please provide me with a URL to the feature “usual array of style options”?

In short, Fox doesn’t change any Elementor Pro behaviors so if you can use any of them in other themes then you can use it in Fox as well.

Kind regards,

Cuong Tran

Whoa. Fastest response ever!

1. Hmmm. I don’t need to convert from otf to ttf as I have both fonts available. I was hoping I could use something like the following to install custom fonts via WP: https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-fonts/

—and I’m not talking about web fonts as in cloud fonts (not sure if you thought I was referring to that).

2. I wasn’t clear on how I could build it out; you either use Fox builder or Elementor (but not both?). What’s to stop me creating my own Header (replicating your own Fox default) – with or without slider? The rest of the Theme looks virtually identical.

4. Meaning; I’ll have full control over the Theme style; accent colors, social icons (does it allow Font Awesome or can I style them differently?), font size, footer style etc—stuff I’d modify via Elementor.

I’m only asking as I have no idea what Fox’s built-in builder is or does.

Thx!

Hi chas68,

1/ Yes is the answer. I just explain some technical details but it seems misleading to the important point.

Technical: In web, they use *woff2 format instead of *otf format. So you’ll need to convert but it’s free and very easy.

2/ You choose one and only option: Fox’s builder or Elementor. But those two are slightly different. Like to draw you can choose pen or pencil, 2 different kinds of tool but give the nearly the same result.

If you choose to build your site with Elementor, it lacks the header slider as i mentioned before. It lacked because we haven’t made it yet.

Here’s a short video about the Fox built-in builder to give you the concept: https://foxdocs.withemes.com/homepage-builder/

4/ Yes you have full control over the theme style but It’s hard to compare to Elementor Pro because it’s specific for the theme while Elementor Pro is for general purpose.

But from my POV, I can say it’s pretty comprehensive to control over things (font, size, color..).

Is there a way to edit the name of an existing sidebar or do I have to create a new sidebar?

Hi jevygurl,

Unfortunately at the moment there’s no way to edit sidebar name. We’ll try to add this feature in the upcoming updates.

Kind regards,

Cuong Tran

Your demos have errors. Check them out.

Hi Chemtrails,

If you experience any errors, please open a ticket here. We’ll assist.

I installed it last night and it was catastrophic. I used the Fox Magazine style and it threw an endless vertical text list of things like pages, styles, etc. on the left side, things like “testtt”, “Apple…”, etc. This was displayed in a layer, which was on top of the homepage content, making it impossible to click on any of the displayed articles…

Hi Chemtrails,

As I mentioned before, if you experience any errors, please open a ticket here. We’ll assist. The theme is still importable normally for years by many other customers.

Kind regards,

Recently the sidebar separator alignment has run out of alignment on all sections including newly made ones. May I know what is the issue?

Screenshot of error: https://imgur.com/a/Y1d5Eh6

Hi chee006,

May I have your site URL with the issue please?

Sure. It’s avidwargamer.com

Hi chee006,

From my side I don’t see any issue like that. It seems you set it without sidebar.

Is there a feature to add the darkmode as a toggle on the site for readers? E.g. https://www.19fortyfive.com

Hi chee006,

Unfortunately there’s no such an option at this moment. However, I saw few customers using the WP Dark Mode plugin to have that toggle button.

Hope this helps,

Cuong Tran

Oh I see. Do you know any plugins that will work with your theme for the toggle button?

I mean, it’s called WP Dark Mode. But please test it yourself, I don’t update the plugin and ensure the compatibility between my theme and that plugin. I just see few customers using it.

hello.. nice theme, but do you have the option to edit some headers? the admin panel seems poor…

https://prnt.sc/NjlItp20OATs

Did you receive an email notification about my answers last week?

Hi, I love the esthetic of the theme but it’s really unfriendly to customize and find all the items. For example I can’t find where to change the fonts for single post and where to add a mobile menu. There is none when visiting from a cellphone.

Hi Pabela,

In your Customizer, there’s a search box to search for options. Like this: https://ibb.co/mJMR9tb

Hope this helps,

Thanks a lot, i’ve been playing around and find some of the things I wanted to change. This link helped a lot !

Good morning, ¿Can this template be used in Blogger? Thanks

Hi bnjmedios,

Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately this is a WordPress theme only. Any WP themes can only be used for WP, not Blogger.

Kind regards,

Cuong Tran

Thanks for replying, one question, if I ask you to sell me the html template for blogger can you do it? please. Thank you.

Hi bnjmedios,

Unfortunately we don’t even have HTML version of this theme. However, if you buy a license of this theme and design your own blogger template same as this design, I can consider it as legal. Honestly, we dont have any other counterpart of this theme (no psd, no html, no blogger..)

Kind regards,

Cuong Tran

I am interested in purchasing this. I really like the look of the Times Writer theme. However while using the demo, in the “Latest” section, when I click on a page number (i.e: page 2), it refreshes the whole page and goes to the top of the page, then you are obliged to scrolled to the “Latest” section again. It would be good if it actually stayed in the same section, or even navigate to a view showing the next page of “Latest” section as a main view, just like it was done for the Original Theme. Is there already a fix for this?

Hi lniass,

Thank you for your interest. I understand your idea.

To stay in the same section, It’s called ajax loading. However, by this approach it doesn’t have a URL for page 2, so Google can’t crawl articles in page 2.

It’s not a bug in Times Writer demo. To show/hide other sections in page 2 is an option and you can turn on/off in your Customizer. It’s all up to you. If there’s something you see in one demo, it means it works 100% the same in others. If you see different phenomena then it’s an option there.

Hope this helps,

Cuong Tran

Hi, the posts on my sites are not loading for some reason or they load and then everything disappears https://shopgiejo.com/

A post only loads when I do a hard refresh three times

I have ads on the site, perhaps they are causing the issues? Is the theme compatible with advanced ads plugin?

Hi bsandman77,

I have just checked your site and everything is loading normally. Could you please tell me which one is not loaded correctly?

What browser and operator system did you use?

In case you’re still not be able to spot the problem, please open a PRIVATE ticket here, with your login credentials, I’ll help you further to check the compatibility.

Normally, Fox works with almost ad plugins, as long as they don’t cause Javascript errors.

Kind regards,

Cuong Tran

live feature is just a button or we can use it for live blog posting like many news site

Hi ChhotaBheem,

To understand how live post works, please read this section of our documentation.

Question before buy, by selecting the non elementor theme of Times Writer will i be limited in some way?

Is it possible to import https://thefox.withemes.com/times/ even without elementor, because i want the white background, but i think is something i can change in the settings.

Is there a way to add a read time to articles like 2 minutes reading ?

When i hover a featured image is it possible to have a zoom in or something like that?

I’ve seen the translate function, it doesn’t translate the article right, only 30 words like show more etc….

Thanks in advance for the info, you’ve done a really impressive work with the theme.

Hi alexallen2,

1/ There’s no major difference between Elementor and non-Elementor one. Demos are almost identical. Yes, you can import all demos having the label “This demo has non-elementor version”. You don’t need Elementor for those demos.

For Times demo, yes, you can import without Elementor.

2/ Regarding the reading time: Yes, please check this demo

If there’s one feature you see in one demo, you can use that feature for all other demos.

3/ Hover effect: Yes, please check other demos for different effects. You can use those effects for Times demo if you want.

4/ I’ve seen the translate function, it doesn’t translate the article right, only 30 words like show more etc….

Hmm, there’s nothing like Translate function. There’s no theme that can translate your article, you always have to translate it yourself. We only have option for translating.

Plus, translating is job of a plugin. No theme implements fully the translation functionality. So you have always use a plugin to fully translate your site.

Kind regards,

Cuong Tran

Hi, is there a way to insert ads in a post without elementor ?

johnd285

johnd285 Purchased

when i saw ’ in a page if you use Elementor’ i was looking for an alternative

Hi johnd285,

It’s just the theme built-in positions. You can definitely use other plugins for your own purposes.

Kind regards,

Cuong Tran

Can you suggest me a plugin to handle ads ? For banner with Google AdSense

Thanks in advance

mekasiat Purchased

Hi Cuong, A question please: a “Post Views” plugin installed by default with your theme does not work well with the WP Rocket plugin, do you have a solution to resolve? Thanks

Hi mekasiat,

What’s wrong with those combinations? I’m using those two and it seems there’s no problem at all. Of course, when you use a caching plugin, the view doesn’t update live 100% as without a caching plugin but it’ll update.

How do I put the theme blog home page in /blog/ ?
