Hi, I have a few quick questions before I download. The plugin looks awesome btw. I’m not a developer but I have a custom theme made with Genesis. I’ve recently had some plugins cause some havoc because of Genesis and was wondering if this plugin will affect my theme at all or if there is a possibility it could “break” my theme. Thanks.

Hi Jward

Because Obox Mobile is only rendered when on a mobile device it should not affect your Genesis theme. We have tested the plugin on as many popular frameworks as possible (Obox, Woo, Genesis, Elegant Themes) and have so far only seen positive results.

Hope that clears things up, if you have any other questions please let me know.

does it work with elegant themes? Their theme http://www.elegantthemes.com/preview/Minimal/ isn’t responsive and their mobile plugin, handheld can’t pull in gallery and contact form.

They said their handheld plugin doesnt support page templates so their handheld plugin is useless with those themes.

Can obox mobile work with page templates?

Hi shaunling

Obox Mobile 2 can list custom post types on the home page however it’s not possible to display them in sub pages. This is a core issue with many mobile plugins and we have yet to come up with a perfect solution.

So if you only need to list it on the home page then Obox Mobile is for you, however custom post types like galleries etc will be an issue.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

hi dave, so that means its not possible to show gallery on the mobile site with your plugin?

Default-user

the gallery i meant was the gallery pulled out from existing desktop site’s gallery. such as this site: http://www.primamedia.com.sg/demo/dynamech

Default-user

hi? you there?

obox

Hi Shaunling

Is the gallery coming from a custom post type? Or is it coming from the WordPress media gallery? If it is coming from the WP Media Gallery then it will display fine on Obox Mobile.

However if its a custom post type then it won’t display.

Hi there, some pre-sales questions:

1) I’ve been wasting enormous amounts of time trying out different mobile conversion apps – they all seem to ignore sliders (even popular ones like Nivo), will this one show sliders?

2) Is this plugin compatible with the grid? Previous mobile plugins were showing grid shortcodes on the live site (like one_third /one_third)

3) Will the plugin show content within iFrames? This is extremely important since I need to use it on an eCommerce site that pulls all of its shop content into iFrames within each page.

Thanks

obox

Hi pixelrage

Firstly, I am terribly sorry for such a late response.

1) Obox Mobile will only support its built-in slider. Since we’re serving a completely different template to your main site, it’s not possible to integrate with it’s slider.

2) I am not aware of which grid you’re referring to?

3) iFrames will be displayed depending on which mobile device you’re visiting your site with. Older versions of iOS and Android may have issues with iFrames.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Hi,

I am building this site http://web11.itvet.co.uk/~itvet/ and I wanna make it full width on mobile, is it possible by using this plugin I can create the exact same look (how it appears on desktop) on mobile as well?

Please address so I can buy it. Do you also provide installations, we already used too many JS files on the website, will it gonna conflict?

Hi zen1987

Obox Mobile will only work for the blog element on your site. Unfortunately it is not possible to show the custom post types that your current theme has.

I would suggest installing a responsive theme or paying a design to create a responsive layout for you. We have a group of professional theme modifiers who I would recommend using:

Can I use this plugin in for a “full website” that does not contain a blog? Maybe for a crowd funding platform?

Thank you. J

obox

Hi J

Unfortunately not, Obox Mobile is designed for your regular WordPress posts and pages only. It is not able to detect and output Custom Post Types.

Dave

Default-user

Dang well its a beautiful set up. Please keep me notified if you create a version that works with a custom post type. I’d throw out a $50 dollar bill without hesitation.

Thank you,

obox

Thank you J, hopefully in the future WordPress can make it easier for us to format custom post types! :)

Hi, I’m interested in purchasing this beautiful plugin.

But my site is already mobile friendly. I have GIGAWATT.

I want Obox Mobile 2 for its menu.

I don’t want my home page or pages or posts. I don’t want nothing to change except the menu :)

Can this be done? And the posts, pages, home page not be modified?

Maybe you can look at my site and tell me? If you have an email I can send you the link to my site :)

obox

Hi K

Unfortunately this isn’t possible with Obox Mobile. If you use the plugin then the design of your site will change on mobile devices.

If you would like to use the same kind of menu from Obox Mobile then I would suggest using one of our Approved Modifiers to help you modify Gigawatt accordingly :)

Hi, I have Evato-Enfold theme on my website, but I have deleted the responsive code from the theme, My question is, Do I have to rebuilt all the pages under this plugin or it will dynamically understand the pages and show content on mobile

obox

Hi Shandhamankar

I’m really sorry for such a late response.

Obox Mobile will only work for your blog and home page, unfortunately we are not able to display the unique sub pages that Enfold creates (using shortcodes and custom post types etc.).

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Hello!

I use lot’s of plugins: sabaiDiscuss, sabaiDirectory, bbpress, bydupress…

Will your plgin make this plugin responsible?

obox

Hi vasilybodnarchuk

Unfortunately not, Obox Mobile is designed purely to work with your WordPress blogging section.

Dave

Default-user

Ok. But will Obox Mobile 2 load pages with other plugins? I will make the responsible myself.

obox

It will load the pages yes, the styling may be a bit ‘off’ though but it will definitely load.

Default-user

I want to use it on multisite. Will it work?

obox

Most definitely :)

How does obox handle tablets? Plugins like wptouch support iPad, etc. Like this plugin but would like some available tablet feature.

Thanks

Default-user

hello? anyone out there?

obox

Hi webcoreinteractive

I’m really sorry for such a late response.

Obox Mobile only activates on mobile phones. The plugin will not display on Tablets, we are considering increasing the screen width at which it will activate but this still won’t apply to iPads and Nexus’.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Dave

Default-user

does this have the capability to mobilize the admin login and admin panel as well?

obox

Hi webcoreinteractive

It only renders the front end mobile friendly. It’s designed for your readers to have a great experience on mobile as opposed to enhancing the admin section.

Hi I have a Magazin theme, bought here from themforest. It uses “Visual composer page builder”. I tried installing wptouch initially, but all i see are visual composer short codes on the homepage. I guess wptouch isnt able to understand those shortcodes. But since i tried with free version, its fine. Now for Obox, would it work with our theme and visual composer built pages. since there is no free version to try, i have to get this answer from you.

Regards DD

obox

Hi Diki

Unfortunately Obox Mobile will only work with themes that use the WordPress posts and pages. It is not possible to detect and render page building HTML or post types.

Sorry about that.

My site is using Ubermenu and the menu does not show up in mobile. Is there any fix for this? thanks, Buddy

obox

Hi Buddy

For Obox Mobile you have to create a separate mobile menu via Appearance > Menus.

Any news about WooCommerce compatibility?

obox

Hi zOrg, we haven’t got any news yet. We are considering a new version of Obox Mobile (v3) which will have a bunch of new features but it is still in the planning phase.

Dave

  • Bought between 10 and 49 items

Show ads? Adsense? without issue? and other thing no cause issue with template? right?

  • Bought between 10 and 49 items
  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Will this be compatible with tablets?

Also, if you come out with version 3, will we have to purchase this again?

I bought version 1 and this was the case when you released v2. So buyers be aware of this policy.

obox
obox Author

Hi Webcoreinteractive,

Obox Mobile is designed to work on phones only, we believe that tablets are designed to display the desktop version of a website.

If Version 3 is released then it will be a new product yes however we will be building on Obox Mobile 2 for some time still.

Please could you ask via the support forum form. My technical support crew will be able to give you a line of css which can hide the desktop view button.

Does this only render the blog section of a site into a mobile-friendly version, or will it take an entire WP site? I have a responsive WP woocommerce but I am still not happy with the mobile display. Thanks!

Hi lamavorganics

I’m really sorry for such a late response. Obox Mobile is designed to work with the blog element of WordPress only. Unfortunately WooCommerce functionality is not yet built in.

I have some question about this plugin: 1) My client has a WP theme with responsive coding (but it sucks), will this plugin override the mobile part of her current theme?

2) If question 1 is YES, will I have to build all the pages for the mobile version from scratch or will it just resize most of the content by itself?

3) If question 2 is “resize”, will it cooperate with some of the coding with the desktop version and place it to the mobile version ( EXAMPLE: will it work with nextgen gallery plugin; will it work with special dropdown menu [not the actual header menu] coding manually added to the php pages?)?

4) Not related to 1,2, or 3, I love the homepage slide, can I create and homepage with nothing but the nav bar, slide, and footer? (minimal text, no posts on the home page?)

Default-user

I almost forgot, can I change the plugin’s theme colors?

obox
obox Author

Hi Jmondesir

1) Yes 2) The content will resize itself, no rebuilds are necessary 3) Obox Mobile won’t work with other 3rd party plugins, that will involve customization by the developer 4) Yes you can, the home page is powered by widgets 5) Yep there is a visual customizer which you can use: http://oboxthemes.com/plugin/obox-mobile

Does this program has its own carousel gallery feature?

Default-user

Really? If I am currently using a plugin to make slide galleries, would those galleries from that plugin appear on the mobile view?

obox
obox Author

Hi Jmondesir

There is a feature slider widget that you can add to the home page.
