    Hi folks,
    I was very enthousiast with your theme Materialize, till yesterday...
    After a lot's of hours work, i would implement a formplugin like Contact Form 7, but as you can see it wouldn't work on the site, see tab order http://visionplus.biz/fun/order/
    In fact I tried different plugins(make a form) and none of them will work on theme Materialize.
    Could you give me some advise, maybe change some settings
    Anyway thanks in advance, and hopely it will be fixed

    sincerely

      So,

      I checked your page and the form is working good.

      Maybe exists some special case when the form not work ? Please give more details !

        I like your theme very much but the checkbox or the acceptance field don´t work in the contact form, in fact I can´t see the box when a I save and do the preview.
        The same happens in the newsletter widget where I put a checkbox.
        Example:
        [acceptance acceptance-913]Check here if you accept these terms.
        [checkbox* checkbox-793]Check here if you accept these terms.
        May be the reason is the css style or the plugins installed? because it works well with another theme.
        Do you know what is happening? thank you

          consult this page from our demo:
          http://test.mythem.es/materialize-wordpress/other-pages/forms-inputs/

          Here are examples of forms and also checkbox and radio buttons.

          Actually the problem can appear only if the tag label is missing or if the checkbox / radio button is wrapped with tag label.

    I love this theme. I'm a sucker for footer content area and your is awesome. However, I can't seem to figure out how to get the posts to feed on the static front page. I don't like the blog feed option so I am using the static front page. How do I get my latest posts to show up there? I don't want to have to change the theme again.

    • mythemes

      So,
      WordPress CMS allow you and restrict the theme developers:
      1. Show a static page on the Front Page.
      2. Show the blog on the Front Page.

    awesome FREE theme!! i have a question, i tested on pingdom and i noticed that the css style sheet that inserts mythemesicon is a bit big and takes times to load which slows down the page load a bit. I was wondering if you could replace those icons for font-awesome icons. I tried to to do it myself, but i didn't find the right file with the rel attribute.

    as another option, where i can see all the icons of my-theme-icons? i want to replace one and i need the code for the icon, the font icon im looking is the map marker

    Also, the theme needs a Material design "scroll to top" button on the bottom

    Thanks a lot for your hard work and keep it up!

      so, about icon font please see the files:
      materialize/media/css/mythemes-icons.css
      materialize/media/fonts/fontello.eot
      materialize/media/fonts/fontello.svg
      materialize/media/fonts/fontello.ttf
      materialize/media/fonts/fontello.woff

      And also Thank you for the suggestions !

    Hi All

    This free theme has awesome customizable action buttons, but the menu bar buttons seem unable to change colors to match the rest of the page.

    I need help changing the red Nav menu button to brown.

    Hello, help!!!! I have set blog reading to Summary, but somehow only full articles are showing up on my Blog page. How do I fix? I want just excerpts.

    Reply
    • mythemes

      In our theme not exists a option like this. I think you mean the option:

      "For each article in a feed, show For each article in a feed, show:
      Full text / Summary" from Admin Dashboard > Settings > Reading

      To add the "Read More" button and display the summary content on blog articles is need to insert the "read more" tag in the post content. ( for each post )

      Hi,

      To display the summary is need fill the excerpt for each post. The settings you relate is for RSS Feed. ( Admin Dashboard > Settings > Reading - For each article in a feed, show ) many people confuse this option.

    Hi,

    I have a bug with the widgets : Header – First/Second/Third Front Page Sidebar do not appear on the front end.

    See this : https://framapic.org/nYxaD1NgP3ez/YlrLPvCmgPcf.png

    Also, on page Attributes section in the backoffice, I have no list at all for choosing my template (as here should be, e.g. here : https://developer.wordpress.org/files/2014/10/basics-page-templates-03.png). I do not know why. Maybe there is a correlation between these two problems.

      Hi,

      Thanks for your support.
      For other visitors, here is the solution you told me via support ticket :

      So The Header Widgets are available Just on Front Page.
      So you need to create a Static Front Page and after this the widgets will be visible.
      To Create and Set a static Front Page go to Admin Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Homepage Settings

    No matter what I do, the breadcrumbs on this theme will only show "Blog" as the title for my posts page. It won't use the name of the page or the "Title for Blog Page" that I set under Customizing > Additional. How can I make it show the page name that I have given?

      In few minutes will be available new update ( version - 0.0.19 ) in this version in Customizer › Breadcrumbs you can modify the word "Blog".


      To disable this word from breadcrumbs try next custom css ( put it in Customizer › Additional CSS ):


      .mythemes-page-header h1#materialize-blog-title{
      display: none;
      }

      .mythemes-page-header div.mythemes-posts-found div.found-details{
      margin-top: 0px;
      }
