  • nice work ;)

    got your email, the other day, sorry i didnt write back ;)

  • You never fail to innovate new ideas in your theme layout. Good job!

  • I am interested in buying your theme because it looks like a good fit. Can you please answer a question first? Can I change the logo without buying the developer edition? Also, what software do I need to edit existing graphics where they are editable? Thanks.

  • Thanks for appreciating our work. With a single license you can modify theme how you want, there are no limits except that you have to keep our design copyright (Designe by WPZOOM), of course you can change the logo too. You can use whatever you want, photoshop, paint.net, fireworks and so on.

    Cheers, Nicolae.

  • I bought and installed it and love it. I have a couple of kinks to work out but it really fits my needs. Thanks.

  • I really like the design of Telegraph and wonder if an html novice can fully customize the site (some themes say you can but you really can’t).

  • It depends on what you want to modify. For example the front page overall structure is fairly set, with a big area top left for a group of items on the slider (“Featured” in the demo). There is the second area at the right for a category you want to highlight (“Travel” in the demo). And a middle area for a category you want to show a large group of posts (“Politics” in the demo). You get the idea.

    The front page is category centric meaning it is not driven by pages like many many themes. I’m brand new with this so I could be wrong. It was what I wanted anyway so I didn’t need to change it.

    The colors are fairly limited. The bars above each category are kind of bright, with preset choices you can select rather than allowing custom colors easily. The background is not easily re-configured an is the white you see in the demo.

    The photo sizes are also what you see in the demo. The three main areas (slider, highlighted, and broad middle section) are preset by the theme. It resizes your photos to fit. The post date also shows on the photo, which I really don’t care for. You also can’t show any comments below the photo or post content, which I also would have preferred.

    Lastly, I have only used the support forum twice thus far, but the attitude of the support is “I’m doing you a favor, why don’t you read the documentation.” Given the lack of support for the four posts on the forum, I would not have bought the theme if support was important to me. As it is, I think I can muddle through and figure it out, but you wold expect better support after spending $69.

    I hope that helps.

  • THANK YOU!! Chuck, you just gave me more support than my current theme (arthemia premium, colorlabs project) ever did!!

    Your response answered every question that I had. I really wondered what “kinks” you were trying to work out. I too don’t prefer the date on all the pics, but I guess I can live with it.

    My current theme problem is that the sidebar slider is buggy (doesn’t work and text is cut off) It’s the reason I’m back in the market.

    Despite the poor support, I think I will try it and see. Can’t be any worse than arthemia!

    Lastly, do you know if you can change the big area to left to display one post at a time? And have you had any problems with video posts? I do have a couple on my current homepage.

    Thanks for your help.

  • I think the big area to the left can display one post. You can select that in the theme set up to show 1 – 6 (or perhaps more). I haven’t tried a video post yet, so I can’t help you there. Sorry.

  • new awesome design of your works!

    nice work!

  • Hi there,
    I purchased this theme and it´s really good looking and nice working. However, I asked for registration in your support forum several times, sent you an e-mail also, but there was absolutely no reply from you. What´s the problem? I would need to solve some issues in support section and cannot get the access…!

  • @Jan Bordovsky: We haven’t received any e-mail from you. Can you send a new one, including your username on Forum to hello@wpzoom.com? Thanks

  • is this theme still updating? where can we see the update status of the theme?
    I mean, some list like “what changed” or something like this…
    Can we suggest some changes?

  • I bought this theme and I am using it for my sports blog, but I don’t like the slide showing two posts at the same time, I would like to change that to having it show only one post. Plus, I want to make the single post a little wider so that it fits a 468×90 ad in it. Can you help…..

    Thank you
