Is there a widget that shows a live stream on facebook? some way of doing this so that readers can verify that I am doing a live broadcast at that time

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your interest. :)

I’m not entirely sure that I understand the request, but I’ll try to provide the best possible answer here. :)

You can use a live stream, just with the standard embed. It doesn’t really matter if it is a live stream or a regular video. On the stream itself, you’ll always see the notice that the author is streaming currently, but that is not related to the theme itself. If you want to notice your viewers that you’re streaming at that particular moment, you can always write a notice inside the post content or a text widget if you want to notify your customers that you’re streaming on that particular post.

I hope that brought some clearance on this topic.

Best regards,

Hello! This is a pre-sales question.

I’m planning to use your theme for Speakers. Does the following functionality exist:

1. Speaker can create a profile and upload/maintain their podcast audios. Can an admin approve their account before allowing the complete initial setup?

2. Depending on a members level of membership they can access the speakers podcast audios. Note: this means membership levels can be set for speakers and members that want to access audio.

3. Some of the speaker audios are free and others are paid.

4. Individuals can click a button to request an appointment/consultation with speaker by filling out a form that will go directly to the speaker.

5. A downloadable e-book is available on the speakers page. We can set as paid or free.

Hi,

Is it possible to have LAST MODIFIED DATE?

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us.

I’m afraid that we don’t have this kind of feature in Vlog as a default theme feature. I will forward this message as feedback to our product team, and maybe they’ll decide to add it in one of the next updates.

You can check out this plugin here, for example, and implement the last modified info on your website:

Hi. I was wondering if you tested Vlog with LearnDash LMS. I just saw that you did add support for LifterLMS, which is also good by the way, but we already have some courses in a LearnDash site that we want to migrate to a new site we are building with Vlog. LearnDash should work with most Wordpress sites, but it would be nice to know you guys have thought about the specific compatibility with Vlog and LearnDash, as you have with LifterLMS. Any thoughts about this? Thanks!

MeksTeam Author Team

Hello,

Currently, we have full support for Lifter LMS but thanks for the suggestion. 

We will pass this request to our Product team and maybe that might be included in some update in the future. 

Thanks for understanding.

If you have any further questions or requests, please send us a new support ticket and we will be there to help you: https://mekshq.com/contact/#support

Pre-Sales Question, Is this a HTML5 based theme?

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us.

Of course, it is an HTML5 based WordPress theme.

Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Best regards,

Meks team

I have some pre sales questions: What page builder does the theme use? Is there a way to link host and guests to podcasts so that a user can easily move between content hosted, or featuring a particular person? I see you have Author but what about guests? Is is possible to import playlists from itunes or spotify?

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your interest.

Regarding the page builder – The theme is self-sufficient, which means that it doesn’t use any page builder by default. If you want to use page builder, you can do that, we’re compatible with all widely tested page builders on the market.

Regarding the authors and guests – Yes, you can do that with Co-author plus plugin. We have a guest feature with the plugin in our podcast themes – Megaphone and Roogan:

https://demo.mekshq.com/megaphone https://demo.mekshq.com/roogan/

Regarding importing playlists – Sure, you can use an RSS plugin to import playlists. You can check this video from our Roogan documentation:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thOjY7ol21Y&list=PL2acA3M-2dSTNJuv4abvv--99amO6uRHu&index=22

If you’re searching for a podcast theme, my personal suggestion would be to check Roogan as well, and test all three themes for free on our test drive site. You have all the options to show videos inside the player. Vlog can be used for podcasting as well, but Roogan and Megaphone are 100% podcasting themes.

Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Best regards,

Meks team

thanks for the response. We are looking specifically for a vlog and podcast theme – not just a podcasting theme therefore which theme do you suggest?

Greetings,

Thank you for your reply, and thank you for your patience during the weekend.

In that case, Vlog would be a perfect choice.

My personal advice would be to create a Vlog test drive and reach out to our support team through this form here, with any questions you may have:

https://mekshq.com/contact/

You can create a Vlog test drive site on this link here:

http://demo.mekshq.com/?theme=vlog&testdrive

Feel free to send us a ticket and tell us if you want to test a plugin, if you want to have guests on your episodes, etc.

Kings regards,

Can this theme be use with https://wordpress.org/plugins/elementor/ Elementor Plugin ?

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us, and thank you for your patience during our holidays.

Of course. One thing that you need to keep in mind is that our front page is manageable through our modules, so you’ll need to use a special procedure if you want to use Elementor on the front page or a module page in general – if you want to mix Elementor content with the module template content.

You can read more about our modules in this article from our docs:

https://mekshq.com/docs/vlog-home-page-modules-setup/

You can use Elementor page builder on the modules page in combination with this plugin here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/anywhere-elementor/

What that means is that you can install this plugin, create a new page with Elementor, add the page ID inside the Anywhere Elementor shortcode([INSERT_ELEMENTOR id=xxx]) and paste that shortcode inside the text module area. After that, you can drag and drop the text module to the desired location.

If you’re creating a standard page(a page that is not using Vlog modules), you’ll work with Elementor with the standard procedure.

If you need any help with that, please send us a regular support ticket, and we will be there to help you:

i assume vlog can act as a books with chapters website ….

if so which series plugin is being used here …

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

That sounds achievable, but post can’t contain series, it works the other way around. Series are containing posts. Series are just playlists(categories). You can check out this article from our documentation:

https://mekshq.com/docs/vlog-series-playlists/

I would also like to invite you to test-drive our theme for free, just follow this link here: http://demo.mekshq.com/?theme=vlog&testdrive and enter your email address. ​

Feel free to share any feedback or ask just about anything theme-related. :)

Best regards,

Meks team

item 1:

so you’re saying each series = a book and each post = a chapter …

but will the chapter title have to be something like so: The Book: Chapter 1 instead of the Chapter 1 Title …

if it’s the latter what’s to become of duplicate chapter titles …

item 2:

as per the vlog series plugin is it your own and does the user simply work with it or does the user need to add function code …

item 3:

can you comment on the post epub/.mobi function inclusion

item 4:

i will test drive …

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.

Please check the example on our demo:

https://demo.mekshq.com/vlog/?series=amazing-stories-from-around-the-globe

As you can see, you’re able to see the series(playlists) headline on the top, and below, you can see the posts. It is how it operates by default.

Regarding the plugin – it is not ours, but it is one of our recommended plugins.

By epub/.mobi function, I suppose that you mean the ability to attach and read PDF files. This is not a theme feature in general. It is more inside the plugin area.

You can check this article here:

https://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/best-pdf-plugins-for-wordpress/

I hope that helps.

such a headache if you don’t know html basically you are doomed this is not a right way how the CMS should be worst theme ….

Hello,

Everything really depends on what you’re trying to achieve. Different people are using the theme for different purposes, in different ways.

If you’re not satisfied with the product, you can reach out to our support team, and we can find a way to help you, but marking the theme as trash is not really our way of communication because we’re pretty clear on what we’re offering on our website. The theme lasts, it’s reliable and fast, and we’re offering a test drive before the purchase. The theme has its own page-building principle, Vlog modules:

https://mekshq.com/docs/vlog-home-page-modules-setup/

If you want a theme that works on the page builder principle with pre-made templates, you can find it, but this is a different approach. The theme is self-sufficient, but it works with all page-builders if you know how to approach it with the shortcode, and actually build the pages.

Anyway, we’re not scammers, we’re an established Envato author team. If you made a mistake and chosen the wrong theme for yourself, we can talk, but this is not an appropriate way of communication on that matter.

If you want, you can send us a support ticket, and tell us about what you want to do, and we’ll help you:

Hello, ​ ​Theme by default doesn’t have its own gallery, but in the Post or Page editor, you can choose the WordPress Gallery block. ​ ​Hope this will be helpful.

We are moving from our first partner to our second partner. In doing so, we need to install a new site and the team would like to use the same theme. It will take a while before we retire the site built for the first team. How many installations we can make with this theme? Do we need to purchase again?

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for showing your interest in Vlog. :)

As we’re selling our themes on Theme Forest, we’re obligated to follow their rules of trade. The official Envato policy states that you can use one theme per one domain. That means that you’ll need two themes for two domains, but that also means that you can have more than one installation if you’re using a subdomain.

I hope that helps.

Best regards,

We are trying to validate the YouTube API:

This is our YouTube developer page, and we have confirmed that the YouTube data API is enabled.

https://i.ibb.co/Z8pM0dk/api-key.png And after copying and pasting the API to the Setting page, we get nothing but credential not verified error. https://i.ibb.co/MsN8kVp/credential-not-verified.png

We do not believe it is a network issue as the Vimeo credential works fine.

Please advise.

Meks Team: it is this issue. (we provided the full account and the screenshots like we did here)

How soon will someone look into this? YouTube API issue seems the only one holding us up.

We took down and old site and are setting up a new site using the your theme. We did not have this issue when we installed your theme for the first site (which we have already. shut down)

Hello,

As you can see on our website, our usual response time is up to 24h on working days. We’re probably in a different time zone, and as you can see, we’re working with other customers as well.

The issue might me caused by numerous factors.

Hello! I’d like to know if the automatic video importer (for videos on Vimeo) is already included in the theme? And how does it work? Is it always running in the background and checking the channel every so often if a new video has gone online? Or do you have to manually start the import with every video?

Thank you for your answer in advance!

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your interest. :)

It is included in the theme, and it is one of our plugins. It works through the Youtube and Vimeo API. You can check these articles from our documentation:

https://mekshq.com/faq/youtube-api-key-video-importer-wordpress-plugin/ https://mekshq.com/faq/vimeo-client-id-secret-video-importer-wordpress-plugin/

The process is not entirely automated, but all it requires is a single click, once you upload the episode to your channel.

I would also like to invite you to test-drive our theme for free, just follow this link here:

Hi, I wanted to ask if this theme is compatible with IFTTT integration. I mean if i create an automated task with IFTTT to create a post when I upload a new video, will this theme be able to correctly publish the post?

MeksTeam Author Team

Greetings,

Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your interest.

That is not really inside the theme scope. IT is more inside the plugin area. The themes are handling your website front end and design in general, and some features strictly related to theme niche.

So, if IFTTT has a plugin that integrates its features inside WordPress, I’m sure that everything will work fine.

If you want, you can create a Vlog test drive on this link here:

http://demo.mekshq.com/?theme=vlog&testdrive

And if you are aware of some IFTTT plugin, you can reach out to our support team, and we can install it for you, so you can test it with Vlog:
