    I just purchased a copy of Bfinder. I assume this is where I can get support? Please correct me if I’m wrong and point me to the right place otherwise.

    I’m now trying to use it on my site, so there’ll be a few questions coming your way ….

    FIRST – I tried to use the TYPOGRAPHY option, using Google fonts. Just for the sake of trying it, I chose Roboto (and Montserrat later) all the way through. But it’s not working. The font type changes to serif instead.

    Did I have to activate another plugin to access Google fonts before this feature would work?

    • author

      Thank you for purchasing our theme.
      Actually, you receive support by email at support @
      Please send the url + admin creds by email so we check it out and fix the necessary.
      Best regards

  • Craig

    Demo is not loading, is this theme still available?

  • alenakha

    Hello. I have 0 for each event category after updating.
    Could you help me please

    • author

      try to activate vantage theme and see the events , how they work there !
      Plus, what’s the version of vantage you are using? is it modified or fresh installs??

  • alenakha

    With vantage theme it also doesn’t work. I have updated Vantage and Bfinder today to last versions.

    • author

      So at first glance, it’s not a bfinder issue. and I assume it’s not vantage’s as well, send the url + admin access to support @, I will look at it and fix the necessary for you.

  • alenakha

    One more problem I have –
    Pictures position is not properly and also in mobile the pictures are on the text

  • alenakha

    Yes, and I think it could be fixed easy, changing images size

    • author

      send the url + admin access to support @ where you receive support.
      For the events, I will see the settings.
      And for shortys, I think it will need some css custom mods .I’ll look into it

  • David

    Is there an upgrade conversion discount for those of us who purchased directory. It seems that child theme is no longer supported in favor of this new updated theme by the same developer?

    • author

      Hi David,
      Both themes are well supported and updated regularity . Bfinder’s updates lately were concerned about some issues appeared in it but not in Directory theme.
      Do you want to switch themes ?

  • Hugo

    Hi… In the live demo is not working the map view, it’s in blank. See Listings » Korean » Kimchi King for example. That is a Vantage or Bfinder error ?

  • nnyorker

    Hi there – Just purchased. Unable to Create Event or Create Listing.
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _wp_translate_postdata() (previously declared in /home2/xxx/public_html/ in /home2/xxx/public_html/ on line 176

    Working now – disregard previous post

  • nnyorker

    I do have another problem that I cannot fix. Events Categories in Tabs Layout does not display. Listings is fine but I can’t get Events Categories tab to display anything.

    • author

      Hi Nnyorker,
      could you please send the url + admin access to support @ , if the issue of the event still appears, unless, you go to vantage theme panel => events (tab) => activate events and save settings

  • nnyorker

    Thank you for the reply. I verified that events is activated, but still no luck. I sent login details to email.

  • Anna

    Hi there – wondering if you have had time to look into these issues. Sent login details to your email.

    When a new user is going to be registering, it gives an error with the following message “ERROR: Please enter the password twice.” But the password field only appears once, and the password hide function does not work.

    • author

      Hi Bobisk,
      make sure your vantage theme and bfinder are both updated to the latest version, this bug appeared last month but appthemes fixed it by updating their vantage theme.

      • author

        Hi everyone, bfinder has been updated to 2.0.0, now it’s compatible with vantage 4.X.
        Backup your website before you update.

  • bobisk8

    I am with the latest version of Vantage Version: 3.0.8 and the Ultima of Bfinder Version: 1.3.1 even so this error continues.

  • bobisk8

    I sent you the access data yesterday? What about the error. ?
    How can I fix it. ?

  • bobisk8

    I have corrected the error, installed from the beginning.

    • author

      Hi Bokisk,
      I couldn’t find any clue about the issue or the generated error.since you fixed it that way, so it was related to vantage theme first install.something went wrong since then.
      I am glad you got it fixed.

  • robertnbg

    • author

      Hi b3d1,
      We are still waiting for the very stable version of vantage , we have started updating Bfinder to be compatible but we have no ETA for the next update.
      Best regards

  • northampton


    Is this Theme still supported and what is the latest update?

  • starrlightmedia

    Hi Spartac, I think you were the most recent developer for the Touch Featured Slider, which I’ve used for maybe 8 years with Vantage 3. I am just updating to 4 and am looking for a slider that will “automatically” slide like the previous one does. Is there a new plugin that does that or does this theme have that with the sliders? thanks, Diana

    • author

      Hi, Thanks for using my plugin all this time.I hope it could help you.
      bfinder has a better slider with more options and updated to fit vantage 4.X, I will update the demo, few listings have been expired for this it looks empty

      best regards

      • starrlightmedia

        What I’m looking for is the home page featured slider to slide automatically (like a slideshow) and also featured listings slider on the categories pages like your old one did.

      • starrlightmedia

        Hi, just checking back on this, I looked at the url you sent and can’t tell – do the sliders in Bfinder work only on the home page or also on the listings/search/category pages?

  • starrlightmedia

    Hi again, I have a few specific questions re your Vantage child themes. Can I email you or can you private message me through AppThemes so I can get some detailed info on whether they will do what I’m wanting? Thanks.

    • author

      Hi Diana,
      yes you can always email me, and please you can expect some delaying due to the world situation
      Best regards

  • starrlightmedia

    Hi, I thought I had your email but I can’t find one, maybe we only talked via the forum. Can you please message me with your email or I can send you mine there? thanks! I also have a suggestion for a new Vantage plugin. 🙂
