    Hi,

    Looks good – it’s obvious – cause it’s apple design. Just don’t get one thing – what’s the sense of duplicating apple design?

    Hello Nick !
    Some days ago I found “Koi”. Today I found “iTheme2″. I like it and I’m testing. To become forum access I will buy “Edmin”. I do not like PayPal and I don’t have a credit card. What to do ? – Thanks.

        Online, i read, i look for informations, i do my mailings … When i have to pay something i do it with online-banking (Germany, EU). Many companies in other countries offer the alternative to transact with branch offices include german online-banking. (e.g. http://www.cleverbridge.com/ ) I hope that themify.me will offer this ways in the next future.

    Really like it, but I cant get the topslider to run.
    Tryed both to show posts and images but nothing shows up.
    The slider shows but without any content, just empty.

      Make sure you have posts in the category that you’ve selected. Also, try turn off your plugins that inject Javascript libraries in the theme.

    Thanks for the very cool theme. I have some questions:

    – Is there any chance to not to show whole post but instead Photo thumbnail and few lines from the post with the “read more” button?
    – Better Social media integration would rock. I mean, default facebook, Twitter etc buttons next to the RSS button above the menu as well as in the blog posts. Standard sharing plugins looks weird when activated and needs more coding and design skills to adjust. Having them integrated by default and adjusted to the site design would be awesome.

      1. Read more: Yes, just insert a more tag where you want to cut the post.
      2. Social media: refer to documentation on how to add social media icons: http://themify.me/docs/itheme2-documentation

        Boy is that documentation for adding social media links off. It doesn’t resize the images, nor tells you what size to make the images for proper placement, and it likes to put the word ‘Social’ on the webpage.

    On the latest version of WP this theme does not cope with rotation on an iPhone, portrait is fine, landscape the pages do not scale and are too wide, same on the iPad.

    I believe the orientation flag might help recognise this case.

    I too can’t seem to get the settings to save. I click save, I get the tick appearing but the settings dont save to the data base. I do see that the iTheme2_themify_data value is in the wp-options table but there is no corresponding values saved in option_value.

    I’m using WP3.1.2 does any one know why this is not working?

    I too upgraded to WordPress 3.2.1 and can’t seem to add images, add tags or quick edits. I had the same issue on another theme and once i updated all the plugins it seemed to fix the issue.

    However, this time round everything is updated to the latest versions – except still not working.

    I also tried to switch over to Twenty Eleven and there were no issues with that theme!

    Any ideas?

    Post excerpts seem a little broken, I would expect to see ‘…’ and a read more link appended to the end where the excerpt is not the whole post. WordPress’ ‘the_excerpt’ functionality seems to do this but iTheme2 seems to roll its own excerpting logic. I made this minor change to themify-widgets.php
    if ( strlen($the_excerpt) > $excerpt_length ) {
    // cut to character limit
    $the_excerpt = substr( $the_excerpt, 0, $excerpt_length );

    // cut to last space
    $the_excerpt = substr( $the_excerpt, 0, strrpos( $the_excerpt, ‘ ‘)) . ‘ …’;
    }

    It looks you set the site logo to absolute position in the Styling tab. To fix this, you can either remove the absolute position or enter the following Custom CSS (under Styling > Custom CSS):

    @media screen and (max-width: 720px) {
    	/* reset site-logo to static */
    	#site-logo  {
    		position: static !important;
    	}
    }

    I love the theme, but I have some problems with it.

    Like Tanmay, I have found that the slider does not scroll, it is just static. Same with every browser. I’ve tried every option I can think of. Also, saving the settings fails about every 20th try, and in some cases you lose all your settings and the theme reverts to the default settings. VERY annoying – I almost gave up on the theme. It seems to be more common in Internet Explorer. I tried upgrading to the latest WP and IE, and itheme2. I switched to working Firefox and have not had the problem yet. I also started saving the settings frequently, in case it happens again.

    It’s great that you have a blog, but not good that most of the questions are never answered.

    Why would you give away a theme that seems so good, but has many issues, and not support it? I would think that people would be more likely to buy your other themes if the free ones worked ok.

    Please reply to the question about the slider. Thank you very much.
