Farm Charm stylish WordPress theme was created especially for farmer’s markets. The theme offers variety of page templates, custom widgets and additional stuff which will help to arrange the website in proper and informative way. Theme supports RTL, is retina ready and scales from 2560px screens down to 320px.
Please, be kind to navigate the demo, entering each page to get complete impression of what will you get by purchasing this theme. You are welcome to ask me any question about theme features or possibilities by writing me in Comment Box of the Item Page on my ThemeForest Portfolio.
Theme comes with several custom plugins written especially for this theme. You are free to install them or ignore (depends on how will you arrange your website content). Here is the list of plugins:
Theme comes with RTL stylesheet. You will need just to download WordPress version in RTL language (Arabic, Hebrew) and specific RTL stylesheet included into package will do the job. Here are below a few screenshots showing how theme looks in RTL:
The theme is ready for any screen size / screen resolution (from 2560 px to 320 px) and here below you may view screenshots taken on iPhone 4S:
CPT allows to create a set of specific (typically united by certain subject) posts unrelated to main blog posts. If CPTs were a part of the theme, by switching the theme you would lose the content of CPT posts. But, once CPTs are wrapped in plugin you may be quiet about your content. Switch the theme whenever you will feel the necessity but take my plugins to another theme and you will never lose your content.
However, if you wish to modify theme pages layout, colours, blocks of content, rearrange blocks, replace things, remove features and so on you should know (more or less) css, html, js and WP php.
Theme is checked with W3 HTML validator (no errors) and with Theme Check (passed the tests).
Oh, fine, interesting, what it was? Hosting? Database? Yesterday after I already sent you a letter, it came to my mind that might be database needs updating (happens that something is stuck in database and it causes issues). Thank you!
Hi there, I wrote this morning before I found your helpful 'help' pages. I am making good progress but am stuck on the widgets - you make reference to adding dragging custom widgets onto the contact block for instance - for the life of me I can't find the custom widgets? Do I have to add these so they are visible? Your help would be appreciated. thanks Patrick
I did find out that I needed to activate the plugins and then it was fine. thank you
All custom widgets included into theme files package, you simply need to install and activate all of them. Thank you!
Hello- I am assembling the website, and so far is it working well. I am having difficulties though, with the widgets and putting them in the proper place. I do not see the named widgets in the pdf instructions on my site. Do I have to install them separately? Thank you, Caryl
Disregard this, I figured out some of it. I did find that I could not use the child theme for this, none of the plugins would work when I activated the child theme. I am having challenges with the individual events and vendor pages..they show up on the front page, and in the widgets, but when I click on read more, they do not show up. Please help me trouble shoot this. I have gone through the instructions in the pdf several times, and do not see anything regarding this issue. Also, if you could advise on the child theme issue that would be great! Thanks!
I apologize for the many comments as I am building this. I am not sure why, but the issue with the individual events and stores are now working, I don't know if they take a bit to fully load on the site, but anyhow, they are now working. I still have the problem with running the child theme and the plugin widgets not working. The last thing that I can see that I would like to have fixed is on on the pages for store and events, the sliding title uses the latest post title, instead keeping the page title. I see that for the individual posts, a sliding title can changed in customizer, but I don't see anything for the pages. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Hello Caryl, thank you! First (as far as I understand it is not actual anymore but still: in Help file I named all widgets and dedicated areas, example: "9. drag custom “Quotation Block” widget onto “Quotation Block” area:" or "8. drag custom “Home Page Contact Block” widget onto “Home Page Contact Block” and so on–if you still need widgets and areas (sidebars) titles they are all mentioned in PDF). 2) I put a few common titles for certain pages which can be changed via Customise (example: "Welcome" on Home page or "Stores" on Stores page) while for example category name will appear as category name (example: if you select category "Press" you see a sliding title "Press"). For pages like Login or any other page a title you have defined will appear (demo example: About page–if you entitle it "About Me" sliding title will be "About Me"). If you wish to change the current structure open index.php (assuming that you are familiar with WP php) and change things as you wish–line#23 under Best wishes! Tanya
Thank you so much, I am really pleased with the look of the site, the ease of putting it together, and the directions you took the time to put together in the pdf. Thank you!
Thank you very much Caryl, for the kind words, much appreciated. Good mood for the whole day is guaranteed!
Follow up - I need to know how to correct a possible wrong click please. I was editing in text every time and every page. I opened up one morning and clicked on edit and only code shows up (which I don't understand at all). It also does not show the bar above the post section that generally includes (paragraph, heading 1,2,3,4, text color and etc). My question is how to I correct to be able to edit in text or basically WYSIWYG. Thank you. Bob
If you are asking about Tiny MCE–it has two modes: Text and Visual. You need Visual. More about how to use WP read here: https://codex.wordpress.org/
Just to advise I am not very happy with the extended services I paid for so lets try it again please. I have been editing all pages with visual (text) and then open the website to work on it and all pages are now appearing in code. I don't understand code - just need to know how to get the pages back so I can edit in text please. I never mentioned Tiny MCE but if you will tell me it will do the job, I will download it and advise how to turn it on to use. I need to know how to correct or I have to junk the theme and move on. Bob
As I said–if you use Tiny MCE (inbuilt editor available on every post and page of WP) use "visual" mode. This is said about post or page content. How to use WP interface is not covered by theme support (theme and WP interface are different things, I am as authour responsible for theme, not for user's familiarity with WP interface). If you mean how to modify php files while you are unfamiliar with html/css/js/php programming languages you will not be able to do that job yourself. Only a professional may help in modifying of theme files structure. Thanks!
i don't know what i just bought... but so far... i'm really not very happy. no populated anything is in here. just a black page and some headline. what am i missing? i was set to buy emphrato or whatever that new theme of yours is... but if this is any indication.. i'm not going there. is this theme supposed to come with anything at all?
Hello, theme comes with both Help file (located in "main-files" folder) which you need to read and to follow + demo content XML file (located also in "main-files") which you may use at firsts step as well and later to change content according your needs.
Great design, Good luck with sales :)
Thank you very much!
Pre Sale Question: Can you please tell me what exactly are the plugins which you build particularly for this theme? So how Merchant Login and event creation work and is there any other color combinations available for this theme? Thank You
Hello, thank you for your interest! I wrote a few plugins (CPTs, widgets and metaboxes) which help to arrange the theme and get the identical to demo outcome of your site. More is written in item description and in "About" page of the demo: http://demo.virtuti.info/demonstrations/vt22/?page_id=51 Merchant Login is a default WP login feature which allows to anyone to register on website and if admin defines a role of "contributor" for registered user (more is written in Help file which comes with theme package), this registered user may create posts under "Stores", add content, upload images, add info like phone, email, Facebook page etc and send the post for admin's approval. Once the post is approved the registered user may edit post, add content (texts, pictures, videos, etc) Hope that helps, best wishes! Tanya
Thanks for a quick reply? Some other quick questions I have are 1: Do you provide demo data or theme with demo data already on it? 2: Are most of the popular plugins compatible with this theme? I really wanted to use Woo Commerce because we are going to install it for the farmer market.
Hello, 1) as mentioned in item description: yes 2) as I wrote already: since I am not familiar yet with how woocommerce works, I am afraid to give ungrounded promises. However, if woocommerce works with TwentyX, there is no reason it won't work with my theme cause principles of theme construction are the same. But again: I have not checked, I have not tested woocommerce in action yet. Thanks!
Fine, thank you for notifying! Interesting, different email is not gmail, right (just my guess)?
Hi Alex, I am after the images from your theme Farm Charm especially the background picture where can we buy these picturs thanks Michelle
Great and beautiful theme as always, Good luck!
Thanks a lot, Farhad! RTL is only and solely because of you:) I mean, it is you who aspired me to do that this time!
Thanks a lot. I will be more than happy to purchase your products!
Very nice work good luck :)
Thank you very much!
Hi, How do we remove the Rectangle in the footer? I've already tried it by deleting it in the footer-content.php and from where to set the hight of scrollable screen I mean I want to move scrollable page close to the top. Thanks
Hello, thank you! Are you a web developer or rather a site owner who is not familiar with basic html? If you are a web developer find the appropriate portion of html and rewrite it as you wish, if you are not familiar with html, please refer to Envato Studio, thanks!
Ah, That was rude!! btw, I already figured that out before you answered this. Thanks for your kind support!
I just wanted to say that I think ALL of your work is absolutely phenomenal !. All the colors and layout is some of the best I have ever seen. Keep it going on and god bless. :D
Thank you so much for these beautiful words! I am very touched. And G-d is always with all of us, I know for sure. Bless you too.
Hello! What a beautiful theme! I am looking forward to building a site with it. One question though: the shopping cart I usually use for websites is not compatible with your theme. Would you, please, give me a name of 1 or 2 shopping carts (preferrable those that are available free of charge) that I can use with your theme? Thank you so much in advance!
Hello and thank you very much! I think any shopping cart will work but! a lot of extra work will be required (mainly styling). I know that EDD plugin (digital sales) or Woocommerce (both digital and normal) will work. But again, Woo will require not only extra styling (and this is huge work) but overwriting template files (for example, product-archive.php). EDD will require solid amount of time to style shop pages as well. I believe same effort with styling will require any cart. Thank you!
I usually use WooCommerce, but I received a message that it's incompatible with the theme.
Thank you for your help :)
One more question: what fonts did you use for the sample logo?
Credits Fonts: Sosa icon font, Condiment, Alegreya, Noto serif Icons: Organic Food by Wojciech Zasina Scripts: rlightbox by Wojciech rrh Ryrych, retina.js by Imulus, selectbox by Dimitor Ivanov, blueberry.js by Mark Tyrrell Images: Pixabay, farm collage (compiled by me) on base of Valkyrie scrapkit (not included) HTML entities / characters by: copypastecharacters Condiment
Hello and thank you for your answer! :) I actually wanted to know the fonts in the sample logo and not the fonts of for the theme.. Thank you again in advance! :)
Hello, again! :) I tried "condiment", but it looks like this is the font for the titles of the page and not for the sample logo. What I am asking about is the font for "Vintage.. Handmade.. Farmcharm" logo.. Thank you in advance! :)
You may download the mock up and PS will show all fonts used. Thanks!
How do we get the images, I bought this theme due to the images I love the background image can I buy it, where can I locate this image please.
Hello, link is available in description (credits), you may purchase Valkyrie scrapkit there, thank you!
Hello, I went and looked at Valkyrie Scrapkit and I could not find the one you had in this theme, and thank you so much for your promt service.
Hello, I am okay I found the image on her site and paid for it and it looks awsome thank you so much again for an awsome theme xx
A, ok, fine, I wanted to add the link, but I see you cope with it. Thank you!
Hello- I want to thank you for all of your help with the little details as I have finished setting up the website. My last question is, how do I change the text in when sharing posts from the website to social media. I don't want the text in there as I think it can cause confusion about the article and who it is by..just curious as to what file I need to change. http://www.nortonfarmersmarket.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/website-change.png
Hello! :) May I, please, ask, which shopping cart/store plug in can your theme support. I purchased your template and installed it but now need to incorporate a shopping cart into it. I tried one, but it crashed my site. So, it would really help to know in advance, which one will work.. Thank you very much for your help! With My Warmest Regards, Natalie :)
Hello Natalie, thank you! I hardly understand in plugins, I know woocommerce will work finely but significant extra work is required.
Greetings virtuti, Seems like it should be easy to find, but I cannot seem to find where to set the email address from the forms on the site. I have looked through your instructions but cannot find anything about it. Thanks
Hello, thank you! no need. The php form adopts automatically the email address you inserted into WP upon installation.
Thanks for the quick response. Is there a way to override that and change it to something else?
Yes, naturally. Simply you may omit using this page template (Contact), use default page + some plugin (there are dozens of dozens available for free in WP repository).
The form now works fine, I like keeping the site clean without extra plugins. I just changed the email address in the options table via phpmyadmin. Thanks again!
