Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is this child theme responsive? 
    Yes the theme is fully responsive.
  • What is unique in this child theme?
    The FlatPress child theme layout is based on Flat Design, which practically means there are very few images used in the design, improving the performance on all devices. The child theme comes with 11 colour schemes to suit your style. With the use of mobile phones for browsing websites ever increasing, there are a couple of mobile-specific features. You can opt to display a Responsive CSS based menu for primary navigation instead of the HTML Select menu that comes with ClassiPress, but the real icing on the cake comes in the form of the option to prevent each widget from displaying on mobile devices (not hiding it using CSS), which will keep the pages tidy and improve performance further.
  • Do you plan to create more child themes along the same lines?
    Yes, we launched Flatter for Clipper previously, and FlatPage for Vantage and FlatRoller for JobRoller subsequently, so the customers can have consistent branding if they use more than one theme from AppThemes.

Installation

  • Extract zip in the /wp-content/themes/ directory.
  • Activate the theme through the ‘Appearance’ menu in WordPress.
  • Go to Flatpress options panel (You find it just under CLassipress settings ) 

Support Policy

From February 2015, support will only be available via email from our email address .

Before you email us, please make sure you have browsed/searched through product forum for the answer to your question, and have read through the Support FAQs below:

Support FAQs

  • What kind of support is offered with a purchased product?
    Your product purchase includes one year of access to premium support via email and one year or free updates. Beyond that, you will need to renew your subscription year on year for around 30% of the product price. Support covers issues such as bug fixes (if any) under normal operation, how to use basic product features, very basic WordPress help, and help with very basic theme customisaton. If you need more advanced modifications please consider hiring a developer to do it for you.
  • Will you provide help with small modifications?
    If you need to do small modifications, you may get help from us as long as they are reasonable in number and nature. If you have a lot of such modifications, please consider paid developer help.
  • What kind of help would be unreasonable to ask?
    This is not an easy question to answer. We are here to ensure that the product you purchased works as intended by us and serves its purpose on your website. That means if it doesn’t work for you, we can step in and help you with it. However, it is when there are no issues with the functioning of the product and all you want is help with modification, that demands start getting unreasonable.
    As mentioned before, we don’t mind helping with modifications, but we also expect you to have tried everything to do it yourself. In other words, we expect you to have tried all the settings in your theme, ensured that the issue relates to the product in question, searched through legacy product support forum, and looked around on Google for the answer to your questions before approaching us. Please bear in mind that one theme, one child theme and a few plugins can get you only so far, and you will probably need to make changes to the code of your website to add functionality, change design and personalise it. In case of too many modifications, we will politely ask you to seek paid help.
  • I am using one of your child themes. I am having an issue with it.
    Please make sure the issue is really with the child theme by activating the parent theme and checking if the problem gets solved. Also please make sure you have tested all the settings in parent theme and child theme, sometimes the answer is right in there! Send us an email if the issue still persists.
  • I am using one of your child themes. I need help with customisation.
    As a pre-requisite, you are going to need a basic understanding of HTML & CSS to start customising the layout and style of your theme. To dig deeper PHP knowledge, specifically to WordPress, will help as well. The WordPress Codex is a great place to start learning. For CSS changes related to text colour, background colour, fonts, etc, please consider using the Firebug extension. A simple Google search returns many good text/video tutorials.
  • Do you offer paid WordPress development services?
    Yes we do depending on our work schedule. You can always run your requirements by us via email.

I bought Classipress a long time ago (when they ust strated actually) and never used it afterwards since I did not really like the design. And there is the Flat era and the beautiful Flatpress child theme. Great looking and very modern UI. I did not think again and purchased the child theme and now have a fully functioning, beautiful and modern looking classifieds website. Great work and fast support. This is my site: http://goo.gl/SorpW7

What's to complain about? Pukka! :)

Awesome theme. So simple to install and edit. So clean and professional looking compared to A LOT of other classipress themes. People mention the lack of ability to change colours, I can only assume that this maybe from users with a lack of CSS (no offence intended if I’m wrong), but if you don’t like the colours, the CSS is nicely laid out, just duplicate one of CSS files and change the colour values and BANG! Your own customised, coloured Flatpress theme.

The only negative thing I can find is the use of font, but saying that, again it’s easy to change, though the actual layout of classipress is at fault with this one as the layout makes it difficult to choose the right one.

All in all, the best theme for the job. I shall certainly be getting the Vantage one to match!

I love this childtheme, I was actually working on my side on coding a similar childtheme then I saw Flatpress and it just saved me soooo much time!

Only one little thing I would change tho:
remove the radius on the buttons (main navigation, sign up, manage ads, edit profile, etc…)

      Hi there,

      Please open a support request in the forum mentioning your site URL. Basically all labels on the front end added by FlatPress theme (just a couple of them) can be set via the FlatPress Settings page. If you have your ClassiPress translated, it should suffice.

      There are already plans to create them as can be seen from other comments and the FAQ’s on this page. Vantage is 60% done, but it could be another 2 weeks before we can release it.

      We have not yet started with JobRoller, but of course, there will be a Flat version in the future surely.

    Looks really great. Couple of questions regarding the demo:
    1 – On the home page, the primary ad image disappears on the mobile layout. Is there a setting to enable those images?
    2 – On individual ad pages, the primary image size appears to vary from ad to ad, is that a setting as well, or does it depend on the image the user uploads?

    Thanks!

    • author
      mohsinoffline

      Hi there,

      1. The image on homepage only disappears on very small screen sizes (less than 400px which is mostly only landcape mode), but appears on all screen sizes above. There is no setting to enable it unfortunately, but it should be a moderately easy CSS fix.

      2. The primary image size depends on the user upload, that’s right.

    I’ve been reading on quite a few forums about people wanting a store feature on the classipress themes. Is this something that you’ll maybe think of doing one day?

    All I can say is thanks for creating such an amazing child theme, you really have taken classipress to the next level!

      Hi Anthony,

      Thanks a lot for your kind words (a review would be even more appreciated!). I am glad you are liking it.

      We have no plans to do a store feature though. I have seen a few requests on the forum, but they seem to be many different views on the implementation, some just need WooCommerce compatibility, some need checkout functionality on the classifieds itself.

    Can you kindly answer the following questions about flatpress theme:

    1. Does it have all the functionalities of the default classipress theme?
    2. Can different attributes be created for each category and used as search filters, for example salary for jobs?
    3. Can location drop down be added to top search bar with category?
    4. Can a timer be set for ads, such as 30 days?
    5. Can users be charged per ad listing? Can charges vary per category?
    6. Kindly give demo backend login details

    Thank you

      Hi there,

      Yes it has all the functionalities of the ClassiPress theme, and it is basically just a new skin.

      The answer to all your questions is yes, for #3, you will need to edit the theme. All these features are built within ClassiPress with FlatPress just providing a design alternative.

      You can check the ClassiPress admin panel using the following link:
