Hi!

I have a few troubles with translating. I use the plugin ‘Loco Translate’ but it doesn’t work always.

For example: - The words ‘pm’ an ‘at’ in the event widget I can’t find in the plugin Loco Translate - In the post area I have the sentence ‘Leave a comment’ and ‘There are no comments yet’ translated in the Loco Translate plugin, but but it has no effect.

I’m sure I’m missing something but but cannot figure it out for myself..

Kind regards,

Bertine

Hi,

many strings are part of the LSVR plugins. For example, for event widgets, look into LSVR Events plugin language files.

I have is a tutorial on how to translate the theme using the POedit software, which is usually much more reliable then Loco Translate or other plugin options.

Lubos

BTW “pm/am” is determined by your date format you can set under Settings / General. It is not something you will find in language files.

Done, thanks!

And you’re right about pm/am, sorry about that

HELP!! I just updated the my site and nothing looks right. sidebars, header, everything.

Dear author,

I started a website with the theme, it is not ready yet and therefore in maintenance mode. So not yet visible online.

But now there is a little conflict about the domain name and we have decided to change our domain name, because we don’t want any nagging and our website isn’t online yet.

Now I know it’s not supposed to, but could I use the theme license again for the new domain because the one I’m using now goes offline.? I really hope something is possible in this..

Sincerely

Hi,

of course, no problem with that.

Hello,

Is the theme multilingual ? can I use 3 languages with the same site ? FR, EN and AR Arabic is RTL.

Regards

Hi,

you will need some sort of 3rd party plugin and maybe even some customization to achieve that. The easiest way to achieve multilingual site is to use WP Multisite installation and have a separate site for each language.

Hello, I have the following question regarding TownPress WP Theme:

- after installing WPBakery plugin, I don’t see the elements in order to edit the homepage… how can I edit the existing elements on the homepage using WPBakery?

Is there an easy way instead of re-creating it from 0? Like a demo import or something? I find it really difficult…

Demo was created using the Gutenberg, but the main homepage is only two elements: TownPress Sitemap and TownPress Posts, you can have it in few clicks.

Ah ok, I had the impression that there is a lot more… Thank you! Great theme btw, congratz!

Hi, I am wondering if/what work is being done with regards to accesibility issues raised when using testing tools such as https://wave.webaim.org/report#/shrawleyparishcouncil.gov.uk

and also https://accessibilityinsights.io/

UK council websites are required to review accessibility and publish what they are doing about it. Having used the theme “out-of-the-box”, I am seeing a lot of notifications of issues to resolve.

Thanks,

Hi,

as I see, there are no errors, only contrast issues, which you can resolve by creating your own custom color scheme.

However, if you want to be 100% sure your site follows all the accessibility rules, you should audit it. You have to take any online tools results with a huge grain of salt. Especially when it comes to stuff like contrast issues.

Hi, When I update v3.6.6, All my post are showed all category. It is an error! And Limit post is not right! I chose 5 posts on limit but it is show 9 posts! After I chose 1 post on limit, it is show 5 posts! All posts have been shuffled category! The post date was also mixed up.

The article does not show the correct category!

Hi,

it will be fixed in the next update which will be available today.

Lubos

There is a new update available (3.6.7) which fixes the issue.

hi, this is a great theme, and I am looking to purchase it, but i also saw you said you are releasing a new theme soon? Is it worth waiting for the other theme?

Hi,

it will be a different theme with a completely different design, so if you like the design of this one then there is no point waiting for the new one.

Lubos

Thanks Lubos – I guess my thinking was more along the lines of whether you will still be supporting this one as much!

Of course I will, I mean, just check out my other WP themes in my portfolio to see that I do still support them all.

Can users upload videos on the forum section?

Hi,

forum is made using the bbPress plugin, please check its documentation to learn about all its capabilities.

Lubos

Does this have a video sharing capability in forum?

Hi – love this theme, it works great. I have a question.

Some residents use the search feature (rather than the navigation menus) to search for specific items, and sometimes they do not realize that the date of a notice or post is no longer current because they do not notice the date of the post.

For example, we had a recent issue with a resident who searched for open jobs, and a notice for a job last October showed up first in the search results, and she tried to apply to it.

Is there a way for us to customize what the search actually searches? For example, specify only within a certain date range, or differentiate which items we want to be searchable? Posts/Notices/People/Directory/Events, etc…

Please let me know. Thanks.

Hi,

I am sorry but that won’t be possible without some advanced custom coding.

Lubos

You can also check out this plugin, to set expiration date for posts (but I am not 100% sure it will work for notices): https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-expirator/

I would like to show the caption instead of the file name. How?

Sorry, I was referring to Gallery pictures. I don’t see an option for Captions.

You can edit them under Media, use the Title field.

Thank you.

Hi, my customer is concerned with the dashboard and wants to login to this site prior to me buying it for them and setting it up. Do you have a site with login credentials already made I can use to meet with them and show them around the backend?

Hi,

I am sorry but that’s not possible, but there are some admin screenshots you can show him though: screen 1, screen 2, screen 3, screen 4.

Lubos

I believe I have followed your licensing requirements by not charging the end user for this theme. I will make the purchase and put it on a test site for them to look at, if it will work out then I will complete the update of their site then transfer to the real URL. Is this supported? Is there a procedure to follow or is it built into the theme to move it from one url (work in progress) site to the final? Thanks

Hi,

no problem with that. There is no special procedure, but there are 3rd party plugins which can be used for a site migration. Please take a look into repository.

Dear TownPress Support Team, Greetings. Hvae purchased the Townpress License with Code: 0dd8569d-32aa-472e-b815-b29db70fdd69

I have my site hosted at www.kothapally.org. I have figured most of it, thanks to your documentation. But I still have a couple to work out. Appreciate, if you can be of help.

1. On the Homepage, is it anyway possible that the LeftSideBar takes precedence over the body in mobile view? As you can check in Mobile View, it is first the Logo, then the Menu, followed by the Page Title, Choose Your Interest, and then the Latest News.

Only after this, the Left SideBar gets displayed. I want the Left Side Bar to be below the Logo and Menu so that the GoodLe Translator Widget and others are easily viewable. Please help.

2. Is it anyway possible that the Google Translator be inserted on the EN / DE / FR etc Language Switcher you have.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks Jags Mamidi

Hi,

1.) I am sorry but that would require some custom coding to do.

2.) I am not really sure, but you can put any link you want there so you should be able to link to a translated page, however it won’t be preserved when yo switch to a different page, agin, this would require some custom coding to do.

Hello.

I am trying to get my listing pages to look like what is in the demo but am doing something wrong. In the TownPress demo, the directory listings appear two wide with small pictures at the top of each listing. On my pages these appear only one wide with a square thumbnail to the left of the info. What can I do to change this?

Also, on my people page, I have made the title City Personnel and Volunteers but it always stays People when the page is displayed. I listed the sort order as ascending but the page completely ignores this. How do I correct these items?

Thanks in advance for your help. Gary

Hi,

please share your URL where I can see it.

Lubos

The URL is not live yet and has the coming soon page. Can we set a time when you could log into my computer and see it from there?

I am sorry, but I will need to see it on my computer so I can use developer tools. Have you checked the setting under Appearance / Customize? Just put it online on some staging site and I can take a look at it.

Hello again. I think I have figured out what I was doing wrong. All seems to be good now. Thank you for responding.

Hi,

glad to hear!

Lubos

Hello. Another query. On the live demo News page, the articles have a picture at the top and a partial article with a Read More link at the bottom. Mine seem to be displaying the entire article. How do I get mine to do that?

Do you store the Latest News articles in the Posts or Notices section?

What is the actual link I should be using for News (mysite.com/news)?

Thanks

Hi,

you need to add excerpt for your posts http://docs.lsvr.sk/townpress.wp/#how-to-add-excerpt

Add news archive: just create a standard page with no content and set it as your posts page under Settings / Reading. Then just visit that page to see your news archive.

Lubos

Awesome. Got it. Thank you. Absolutely love the theme BTW.

You can show the love by adding a 5* rating:) (under your ThemeForest account / Download) Thanks a lot!

Thanks Lubos. much appreciated

Is there a way to add multiple images to the Image Widget that would randomly display with each page load? If not, do you know of a widget that would do this? Thanks

I have searched for options and have even tried a few but none work properly. It seems there is void for this feature which is odd as it would be a great advertiser tool. Would you be willing to write a custom widget for the theme? And if so what would be charge to do so?

I am sorry but I am currently not available for custom work.
