I am in the process of purchasing this theme. I want to keep the forum private, in the sense not even show the post, as soon as a general user clicks on forum link in the menu, it should ask the user to register or login, is this possible with your theme ? Also, is your theme compatible with The events plugin ?
This is a question for bbPress, the plugin which adds forum functionality. As far as I know you cannot require a user to login to view a topic – they only have the option to make a forum private so a logged out user cannot see the forum at all. This is discussed here: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-only-for-logged-in-users/
Hi – I think I am losing my mind possibly – as I cannot replace the logo ( the aqua Vivacity image in the demo ) – which is currently under this url – wp-content/themes/vivacity/lib/images/logo1.png – I am not a developer and am working through the front end only, please please please don’t tell me to go into the backend of the site , I will just fall in a heap and cry – the instructions for changing the logo are great – except for the fact that there is no logo option under the Theme Options >> Customise menu , and the one place I did find where I can place a url for a logo ( from my media uploads ) doesn’t do anything—any tips on how I can take away the Vivacity logo from my otherwise almost complete site header ?
Of course you need to go into the backend to change the theme options. This is the same for nearly every theme.
The help file says to change the logo from Theme Options -> Header and find the Custom Logo Image option. Hopefully this will be of help.

that’s the one – Theme Options -> Header – I have my own logo in there , but it won’t show up on the page …. ?? Is there some other override where the vivacity image might be coming from ?
As I say please open a support ticket at https://ghostpool.ticksy.com and provide me with admin login details and I’ll take a closer look.
Hi, I would like to purchase this theme but how can I import the demo content/demo data in the theme after I installed for example?.. Cause I have been reading comments about this is not possible with in this theme. Is that real?.. Thank you.!
The theme comes with a one click demo importer so you can get the theme looking just like the demo. Where are these comments you’re referring to?
Please I am considering buying your theme but I will like to know if vivacity allow users to add their portfolio from any frontend form or sth like that
Unfortunately the theme does not offer this functionality.
Hi there, the 5th column footer widget is not showing at the right side. Adding content to the 1st column widget wont move it to the right but place content above the 5th. Is this common or a setting I didnt see?
Hi, a single image pretty photo or link to bigger image aint workin either… Can you tell me how to fix? I just installed your latest update.
Hi there, it sounds like you need theme support. Just so you know the ThemeForest comments area is a dedicated place for people who have not yet purchased the theme and want to ask pre-purchase questions.

First problem is solved by adding empty widgets..
I know this is not the place. I’ve been using the theme for close to 2 years. And update about once a month, the most recent update seems to change the style of my header, overrides the custom style of my page title, and changes the color/sizing of my nav links. I’ve looked at the changelog… not sure why this might happen. Any ideas?
The Redux theme options framework has been updated so that’s the only changes that I can think of that would affect these things. However nobody else has reported this.
I can look into this for you but you will need to renew your support by visiting the theme item page and clicking “Renew support” button on the right hand side. For more information please see: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/207886473-Extending-and-Renewing-Item-Support
Awesome, thank you for the insight. I appreciate it. Will turn to renewed support if next.
I updated my website today with the new version and the visual composer stopped working. When analyzing by turning off the plugins one by one, I noticed that the vivacity-plugin when off makes the visual composer work again, but deactivates all functionality of the theme.
Can you help me?
I started to love this theme, until I noticed the utterly outrageous control over the page scrolling, I find it utterly insane that this is even allowed in the modern world of website design, why the hell have you modified how the page scrolls using the normal scroll method on a desktop, ruined this theme.
The theme uses a smooth scrolling script that alters the scrolling. A lot of themes use this and a lot of users like it. There is an option to disable this of course and just use normal scrolling.
I there, it seems that a lot of the functionality of this theme breaks when using PHP 7. We tried moving a site to a new server with PHP 7 and it was as if the theme couldn’t read the theme settings anymore.
Hi there, adding the new update version to my ftp theme map overwrites the theme settings to the standaard settings. Export and import the theme settings after install are not changing anything. I want to keep the old settings…how’s this possible?
I cannot replicate this issue on my installation and nobody else has reported it. The settings are stored in the database and have nothing to do with the theme files you uploaded. Have you edit the theme files in anyway?
I have changed background, fontsize and colours in theme options (Dashboard). After updating the theme al is set to original (like the demo version) and I can start over again….
I can look into this issue for you but your support for this theme has now expired (you received 6 months of free support when you purchased the theme). You will need to renew your support by visiting the theme item page and clicking “Renew support” button on the right hand side.

We purchased your theme back 2014. How do we get the latest updates? When I open the wp-admin it does not indicate there is an update available. Our Visual Composer is no longer functioning until we get the update.

Hi, I have some questions before buying this theme
1. How often will you update this theme?
2. Once I’ve bought this theme its license is for life, right?
3. if I reflected a failure after 6 months of support no one can help me?
4. I noticed that the loading of the live preview is a bit slow. It will also be the same on my site?
Thank you and congratulations for the theme
1) Updates can vary from twice a month to every few months as shown in the changelog: http://ghostpool.com/help/vivacity/changelog.html
2) Yes. A license means you can use the theme for ever. Support lasts for 6 months but you renew it.
3) I’m not sure what the question is? Are you asking whether can you receive a refund in this case? If it’s a theme issue that cannot be resolved, yes you can receive a refund.
4) This depends on the server. My server’s running slow at the moment which I’m working on fixing.
Thanks for your reply! Before buying this theme i’ve the last question. Are there any spaces for advertisement in this theme?
You can insert ads within the sidebar or within the page content.
The theme does not have this feature but there are plenty of plugins that add this functionality e.g. https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/uk-cookie-consent/
hello there is a serious thing missing on my buddypress pages …. specifically the abillity to search the groups or members .no search whatsoever …can you please release an update to include this? its a basic buddypress feature
thanks for your amazing work!
The theme does exclude these features, in fact I can see them on my installation. BuddyPress provide their own pages, so if you can’t see these features it’s likely an issue on your end. I suggest contacting BuddyPress about this issue.
i have tried a plain installation of vivacity and if you go to /members homepage or /groups there is no search members or search group box …. i haven’t done anything strange with buddypress and as soon as i switch to a default theme these search boxes are there ….so this tells me its a theme issue don’t you agree?
Do you have any custom CSS code hiding these boxes?
The fact that they show up on my installation and nobody else has ever reported this suggests it’s not just a theme issue. If you post a link to the members page I’ll take a look, but you’ll likely need to purchase theme support so I can look into this issue for you.
no and like i said i did a plain install of vivacity on a totally separate site no child theme nothing running and the boxes still didn’t show up
When I tried to change font sizes globally on the site, I receive an error message.
Quick yes or no question -
I’m buying a website that uses this theme, it has this annoying lazy scrolling thing, that is also the same in your demo – is that something that can be easily disabled ?
thank you !
Yes this can be disabled.
Hello. My company is already using your theme. I just started here, I cannot find the license so I’m going to have to purchase it again to do the upgrades, etc. BEFORE I do that, I’m wondering if it is possible to make the mobile menu function and look the way the one on http://www.homedepot.com does. Please let me know as soon as you can. I appreciate it, thank-you!
If you’re able to get the login details of the account that purchased the theme, you’ll be able to obtain the license number in order to receive support.
You can see what the theme mobile menu looks like by viewing the demo. In order to get the mobile menu looking like that you’ll need to customize it yourself or hire my developer to do it for you.
Testimonials gone, only code is displayed, and it’s no longer an option in the visual composer.
Have you updated to the latest version of the Vivacity Plugin. Go to Appearance > Install Plugins to see if anything needs updating. If you still have an issue please email me at https://themeforest.net/user/ghostpool with WordPress admin access and I’ll take a closer look.
while the theme has an import export function for the theme settings, every time when I am doing a theme update the whole menu is back to demo style. ‘Setting import wont help. I asked it before and support is over but can you tell me what I am possibly doing wrong here?
I understand if your support has expired but you’re posting from an account that has never purchased this theme. Until you post from an account that has purchased this theme I’m not able to help you.
If you email me via my contact form with WordPress admin login details I’ll take a look: https://themeforest.net/user/ghostpool
Please note you will need to renew your theme support if I determine this is not a theme bug. To renew your support visit the theme item page and click the “Renew support” button on the right hand side.
Once you’ve renewed your support you can post a support ticket at https://ghostpool.ticksy.com/
