    On the "Live Preview", clicking on a Movie title defaults to the left-most tab which lists general site news. Can the theme be configured so that clicking on a movie title goes directly to the "Review" tab? I like all the features on your template, but would like to simplify things a bit. I just want to use the theme for movie reviews. Clicking on a movie title from a list of films should go directly to the review itself. Is this possible? Can this be configured through the back-end UI? Thanks!

    Some additional questions (1) "Find Films" sidebar: Can the searchable attributes be changed/edited? For example, can "Rating" be renamed to "Country" with a dropdown menu of locations: USA, Canada, etc... (2) Find Films sidebar: On the back-end, are the menu items "Categories"? or custom fields/attributes? (3) Find Films sidebar: Can more than four searchable menus be added? (4) Can additional attributes be added to a movie entry (e.g. Cast, Writer, Director, etc.) and display on the movie summary sidebar? if so, is this functionality easily accessible via the back-end UI? FYI: I found the answer to my previously asked question in the older posts.

    Hi there, 1) If you link to the review page directly then it will go the review page. So yes this is possible. 2) Yes this is possible. You can just create reviews without hubs, but a lot of the extra functionality does require hub pages (post associated, reset user ratings etc.) --- 1) Yes. 2) The Find Films element is displaying the custom taxonomy fields (similar to categories or tags) associated with films. 3) Yes, as many as you want. 4) Yes, the theme provides an option to create as many hub fields as you want e.g. Writer, Director etc. These are what you then tell the Find Films element to display.

    Hi! The theme looks really nice. Have a few questions. 1. How do you think, is it possible to make a site dedicated to customers' reviews using this theme? I mean smth similar to makeupalley.com - there is a product review, and all other users may also log in and write their own opinion on the products and / or rate with stars (which in you case might be numbers, I guess)? 2. How is the first page design compiled? Does it randomly take some last news? What if the article is without any picture, what will it look like? Thanks for you answers!

    Hi there, 1) This theme allows you to create an initial hub/review pages. Users can then rate this review from the user rating box. Additionally they can write a detailed review but the rating value they give the review is not added to the average user rating like the rating in the user rating box is. 2) The homepage is designed using the Visual Composer so you can drag and drop elements into the page so it looks exactly how you want. You can choose to display the latest news, but you can also change what posts are displayed, what order they are displayed in (most views, by titles etc) If an article doesn't have a picture it will just show the title and text.

    Hi there, 1) Some of the menu items are categories like Games, Travel others are page links like Features. Game of the Year is a custom option. PC, PS4 are categories. 2) Yes. 3) You can display reviews and news posts in the same section on the homepage - you cannot display them together on an actual category page. 4) The background image width changes with the browser window so there is not one fixed size - I would say use an image around 1170 x 368px.

    No not really. To create a new tab on a hub page like the existing tabs News, Videos etc. you need to create a child page (not post). The post content shown within the tabs e.g. news posts within the News tab (page) are associated with the hub using a custom meta field option. They do not use a parent/child post relationship because posts do not have this kind of relationship.

    You do not need to use code, as I explained you need to just set a page as a child page to create a tab. That's it. This is all done with standard WordPress options. If you're looking to do something custom then I'm not sure how you would go about this.

    ello, First of all, congratulations for building such highly rated themes for online reviews. We are interested in your ‘The Review’ and ‘Huber’ themes. First, could you please answer a few questions? 1. Could a Hub also be a category or a tag? 2. Could a news / blog article be linked to several ‘related products’ (top of the article page)? For instance, if we write an article entitled ‘top 5 games’, could we reference the 5 games (and link to those pages automatically)? Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy New Year!
