    Hey nice Template, but so many IssuesHello,

    a very nice template but I have some problems with it, but what bothers me the most is that I can’t remove this stupid button ” Forums list” to make the forum look like a “normal” forum and show its subcategories.

    how can i fix this ? the supportforum shows a way i don’t have.

    You Wrote ” To customize the style options for the forum pages, go to Appearance > Customize > Forums > Style.” but there is no ” Forums button”

    I am also struggling with performance, it can’t be the server load is at about 20% 8 core and 24GB ram on a SSD.

    With kind regards

    Hi Krashdeez,

    Thank you for buying our theme. We hope it will meet all your expectations! 🙂

    Be aware that the forum is managed by bbPress plugin, not our theme. To see the available options, you have to go to Customize > bbPress. We remind you that a theme affects the presentation and visual style of your site, while plugins add all kinds of features and functionalities. Concerning the button, this is standard behavior with bbPress, I’m afraid.

    Anyway, we made you a quick snippet. Simply add the following code snippet to your website:

    /**
    * CUSTOM WORK: Hide Forums Button
    */
    body:not([class*="yz-"]) #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body .dropdown-subforum{
    	display:none;
    }

    To add this code snippet to your site, we recommend that you paste it to the Custom CSS panel of your WordPress Customizer. Just go to your dashboard and navigate to “Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS”.
    Pasting your code snippet there should do the trick for you.

    Also, it’s important to remember that we share snippet only to solve issues with our theme. Any further request for CSS snippets will have to be part of a defect that needs to be fixed urgently. No snippets will be shared otherwise. If you want to go further with the customization of your website, we advise that you require customization work.

    Concerning the performance: In most cases, performances issues are related to third party plugins, not our theme. To make sure that our theme doesn’t have anything to do with that, I suggest you to install a website with our theme without any extra plugins to check the performances.

    Regarding performances, here is some extra tips that could help go through this issue:

    • Check the WordPress prerequisites here: WordPress requirements
      If your website doesn’t have the prerequisites, it won’t work correctly and might slow down your website.
    • Use a good host. We use WP Engine to host all our demos.
      A faster server with proper settings will make your website load quicker. Some hosts also offer preset caching systems that will also improve loading times.

    The performances of your website can also be improved, like our demos, by some additional plugins:

    • WP Rocket: Improving the speed of your WordPress site with caching options.
    • Imagify: Shrinking your images with lowest quality loss.
      If your images are too big, I’m sure you can understand that your pages will load more slowly.
    • Imsanity: Automatically resizing huge image uploads

    Of course, these are basics advises and you can always add more stuff to improve your page loading time but this is a pretty good start. In conclusion, all these steps are required to make sure to optimise the performances of your website.

    The more important advise we can give you: limit the number of plugins! As you know, too many plugins will considerably slow down your page loading time. So, we advise to stick to the bare minimum! Let’s imagine that a user uses 50 plugins on his website. In this case, there is little chance that his site will work quickly, regardless of the theme used. Did you know that only two plugins (Grimlock and Kirki) are actually required to make our theme perfectly work? You can rest assured that our theme will work fine and perform better without few plugins installed.

    We continually improve the performances of our themes. Please be aware that to reduce repetition in CSS, and improve powerful runtime effects like theme switching, we use variables to customize our theme.

    Moreover, we developed some additional plugins (Grimlock for BuddyPress, Grimlock for the Events Calendar, etc). We didn’t choose to make all the style in the theme to keep it light. Each plugins needs his Grimlock plugin to be compatible with the theme. For exemple: if you don’t want to use BuddyPress, you don’t need the style of BuddyPress. Some theme authors include this style directly in the theme, but we don’t. This would have slowed down your website, this is why we choose to work differently and include this style in a plugin. To apply the theme styles to BuddyPress, you need to install Grimlock for BuddyPress.

    Please also be aware that it’s more complicated than that, but I tried to explain you as clear as possible how to getting started with improving your website performances.

    I really hope this will help you better understand how our theme works. Let me know if you need more explanations. 🙂

    Concerning the button, this is standard behavior with bbPress, I’m afraid.

    Here I have to disagree with you, this is not a standard behavior of BBPress, I installed bbpress solo on an empty wordpress to test some settings and standard it looks like “Screen1”

    Simply add the following code snippet to your website:

    Thanks, but I didn’t want to “hide” it but just get the subforums displayed and no extra list to press.

    You can find useful information about this at https://codex.bbpress.org/ including https://codex.bbpress.org/bbp_list_forums/.

    Since the design or the template was created by you, I can assume that you have inserted this button and this is not “standard” from BBpress.

    The rest of the design is ok, yes you have to put work into it, only the forum is the only thing that bothers me very much.

    and as I said the instructions you have in the support forum are not correct, the menu items given do not exist.

    The performance, yes, here I found the problem,
    The server has no problems only the php configuration for the template had to be adjusted, because it needs more “resources” than the standard installation of WP and here the link to “Check the WordPress prerequisites here: WordPress requirements” does not help.
    After the optimization I had when installing also Suddenly a menu on the page 😉

    About the plugins…

    Yes unnecessary plugins slow down the site, true.

    Why do you use so many plugins then? if they should not be used then ?

    With kind regards

    Hi Krashdeez,

    Thank you for your feedback. I now understand what you would like to achieve. 🙂

    You’re not referring to the behaviour, but the style. The sub-forums is displayed by default by bbPress plugin, but we added the drop-down style ourselves. This is standard design with our theme. As this is not breaking the page, changing this is considered customization work. Unfortunately, this is a service that we do not provide. We only share snippet only to solve issues with our theme.

    However, we generously made you this snippet:

    /**
    * Disable the Toggle Button for Sub-Forums
    */
    body:not([class*="yz-"]) #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body .dropdown-subforum a.dropdown-toggle{
    	display:none;
    }
    body:not([class*="yz-"]) #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body .dropdown-subforum .dropdown-menu{
    	display:block;
    	position:static !important;
    	transform:none !important;
    	background-color:rgba(0,0,0,0);
    	box-shadow:none;
    	display:flex;
    	flex-wrap:wrap;
    	margin:0px -5px;
    	padding:0px;
    	float:none;
    }
    body:not([class*="yz-"]) #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body .dropdown-subforum .dropdown-menu a{
    	color:var(--grimlock-button-primary-color);
    	background-color:var(--grimlock-button-primary-background-color);
    	margin:5px;
    	width:auto !important;
    }

    To add this code snippet to your site, we recommend that you paste it to the Custom CSS panel of your WordPress Customizer. Just go to your dashboard and navigate to “Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS”.
    Pasting your code snippet there should do the trick for you.

    As I told you, only Grimlock and Kirki plugins are actually required to make our theme perfectly work. We use other plugins in our demo to show our user our the compatible plugins look like with our theme. For exemple, if a user wanna use The Events Calendar, he might need to see how it looks in a theme before buying it. This is why this is a demo. You’re free to start from scratch or select the plugins you need in the theme setup in the Plugins step.

    We continually improve the performances of our themes. Please be aware that to reduce repetition in CSS, and improve powerful runtime effects like theme switching, we use variables to customize our theme.

    Moreover, we developed some additional plugins (Grimlock for BuddyPress, Grimlock for the Events Calendar, etc). We didn’t choose to make all the style in the theme to keep it light. Each plugins needs his Grimlock plugin to be compatible with the theme. For exemple: if you don’t want to use BuddyPress, you don’t need the style of BuddyPress.
