I love the layout in the demo of the large picture of the girl holding her coffee with an episode and bio section. How do I make mine like that? I downloaded the demo template but mine has a thin menu bar and then below goes right into a 2 columned episode section (which is fine but, I’d like a large picture background above it like the coffee girl) . Do I have to insert a new element on the Menu Editor? If so which element? Help

Hi amazing work in this theme, this is a pre-sales question have you considere to include revolution slider. I saw in the preview site that you have just a still images but I like very much the elements over image. Try to preserve this funcionalities if you decide to include revolution slider. The main purpuse for this plugin is to promote posible shows formats o different shows. Thank you and again, awesome job here!!

Hi there – I’m thinking of purchasing your theme. One question: I plan to have a very active blog on my site and would like to have a grid layout for my posts. Will the theme support plugins for changing the blog layout? I’m thinking of using the Masonry Grid plugin (https://codecanyon.net/item/masonry-grid-resize-builder-wordpress-addon-visualcomposer/15156198?s_rank=6) but not fully decided yet.

Hello. Sorry for the noob question, but does this theme have any tools included to put a podcast behind a paywall (extra episodes) while having an episode free every week? I’m looking to expand a popular podcast by adding extra episodes for a monthly subscription but have little experience with e-commerce and was wondering if that functionality is included (or can be added in easily). Thanks.

Before I purchase this theme, I wanted to know if there’s a way I can make a static page where my LIVE Ustream player can be embedded and viewers can watch the DJs play live while still being able to navigate all the links on the site. Is this possible with this theme? or can I pay for extra coding/plug-ins?

Hey guys – I’ve purchased the theme and am loving it thus far. I’ve got a back-end question about the “episodes” custom post type. This theme is awesome and practically unique – couldn’t find other themes doing the same thing – so in my case I’m using it for a audio & video post production studio. I’m using the “episodes” custom post type for “work examples” in practice.

Hi, i’ve imported the demo content but all images appear as DEMO. So I’ve no images. The problem is that the player under the home page slide doesn’t appear as in your live demo: for example the audio icon is hide, the time bar has width zero . Only the player under the slide title in a single episode is right. What’s the problem? Why in your live demo all is right but in my installation and in my demo importing the things went wrong? I’m a developer so i know how install wordpress. Please help me. The same player visualization problem occurs when I resize the home page: the time bar has width zero and the volume has only icon . In the single episode the problem does’nt exist .
