Hi there. GREAT plugin.

I’d like to create an options page with simple modifiers for my client, like background color, font size etc.

I was wondering if there was a simple way to reference/echo these values to a css file, rather than having them as inline CSS or in the head.

Many thanks.

TrueThemes

Hi There my friend,

We’re so glad you’re pleased with the plugin.

The solution for your request is to create a “dynamic PHP stylesheet”. This isn’t a function of the ProPanel per-say however can be achieved fairly easily.

Here’s a brief outline of the steps:

- Create a CSS Stylsheet however name it with a .php extension. For example: custom-style.php

- Call this stylesheet in the head of your page just as you would call any normal stylesheet. For example:

<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='css/custom-style.php' />

- Open up your custom-style.php and drop in the below code. This code will connect to WP and allow you to access your stored values from Options Panel and will also set the proper ‘header type’ to CSS.

<?php
 $absolute_path = explode('wp-content', $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']);
 $wp_load = $absolute_path[0] . 'wp-load.php';
 require_once($wp_load);

  /**
  Do stuff like connect to WP database and grab user set values
  */

  header('Content-type: text/css');
  header('Cache-control: must-revalidate');
?>

- Lastly write your CSS just as normal (using PHP echo since it’s a PHP file) and you can then use your stored values throughout.

Hope this information is helpful my friend.

If you run into any snags you can find more resources on Google by searching something like “PHP Variables CSS Wordpress”.

Here’s a great article with additional details (and is also where we grabbed the wp-load code): http://css-tricks.com/css-variables-with-php/

Why isn’t this plugin in the WordPress category? Congrats on Elite by the way.

TrueThemes

Thanks so much my friend _

ProPanel is technically not a plugin but rather a set of Wordpress PHP files.

Hi,

Our developer shared this issue with me would really appreciate if you could help us asap because some clients are complaining:

when I add textfield “name” with std value:

$options[] = array( "name" => __('LinkedIn','framework_localize'),
    "id" => $shortname."_social_li",
    "std" => "http://linkedin.com",
    "type" => "text");

I go to – wp-admin/themes.php?page=siteoptions, and see default value http://linkedin.com at textfield LinkedIn, good.

I clear this textfield and save with empty value. good, save null value.

I go to homepage (or other page my site) and when i return at Admin panel value my field (i save null value) include std value.

Hello, I’ve watch your video tutorial and setting about how to retrive informations on front end, but I’d like to know if is possible to echo variable in a if statement; in other word, I’d like to check if the variable exist, and if not, print other. Sorry for my bad english:) Thank You for the answer.

TrueThemes

Hi There,

Yes this is indeed possible.

Here’s a quick overview of how this code might look:

<?php 
$sample_text_field = get_option('yourtheme_sample_text_field');

if('truethemes_rocks' == $sample_text_field):
echo $sample_text_field;
endif;

?>

....and of course the above if-statement would indeed get echoed because, well TrueThemes rocks. (lol just having fun)

Hope this helps my friend.

The file upload feature does not appear to be working. I have 6 on one tab for updating a slider and when I click the button for “file upload”, nothing happens. Any suggestions?

TrueThemes

Hey Vern,

I’m so incredibly sorry for such a long delayed response time here on ThemeForest boards. I was hospitalized for nearly 12 days in ICU.

You may have already received solution however if not, we are more than happy to take a closer peak behind the scenes of your website and help you to resolve.

Hello

I’m not sure if I get this right. Is this panel 100 % customizable, so that I could make my own teacher dashboard, for example like the one below, and then have teachers and students log on?

(Of course, not with the same graphics)

Thanks so much for your interest in the ProPanel.

ProPanel is a framework for creating a Wordpress Theme Options Panel so would not likely be the best fit for a Teacher/Student Dashboard.

ProPanel would ultimately be part of a Wordpress Theme so users will need to be logged into the Wordpress Dashboard to view.

Here’s a typical example of how ProPanel is used:

Someone building a Wordpress theme to sell on the ThemeForest Marketplace is in need of a super easy-to-use admin panel script.

ProPanel helps them by adding a fully functionality admin options panel to the wordpress theme within minutes.

It can have an unlimited amount of sections and each section can have an unlimited amount of options.

Each option can then be “called” to display anywhere throughout the wordpress theme. (ie. a color picker option could be outputted to some CSS….a textfield option could be outputted into the footer of a site for copyright details, etc)

Hope this information is helpful my friend.

Hi,

one of the devs said that there’s no possibility to add a backup option in propanel, is that possible ? + can you guys make some updates last one was in july13 Thanks CHeers UOU

TrueThemes

Hey UOU,

Adding an import/export option would be quite an advanced modification. We unfortunately do not currently have plans for this type of upgrade.

Apologies my friend.

Hi, is there an option to have an “add” button to the panel. For example, I want the user to be able to click “add” and then a new filed of “browse image” will be added so that they can add an image to their portfolio.

Or click “add” and a have a new text field added for a new client quote. Etc.

Thanks in advance,

TrueThemes

This functionality is not available. very sorry my friend.

Hi, I want to use another php system. Is it possible?

TrueThemes

Unfortunately this options panel is built using Wordpress-specific functions so will not work outside of a wordpress environment.

Apologies my friend.

Is there a way to add a section heading for a group of similar options? For example:

Header – (main section)
--Nav Styles
——Link Font Color – (these are options: color, text, text area, etc.)
——Link Hover Font Color
——Link Background Color
--Top Bar Social
——Turn on or off
——Background Color

TrueThemes

Hi There,

We first want to apologize for such long response time here on ThemeForest. Our Author Dashboard has been down and it’s been super difficult to determine when comments were posted.

Adding sub-pages to the Options Panel’s Navigation is not currently an available option.

One could use the “info” option-type at the top of a particular section to outline all of the options included in that particular section.

Please feel free to give us a shout if there’s anything else at all we can do to help.

Thanks so much

Cheers :)

Hi there True Themes,

Just wanted to say that this plugin rocks.. So glad we bought it, this will definitely be a standard for our themes!

Will there be an update in style since the new and sweet looking WP 3.8 is out? If not, we will probably do some modest image styling ourselfs eventually.. If so, we can always share those files with you guys of course..

Anyways; Cheers!

TrueThemes

Hey mate!

Thanks so much for the kind words! We’re so glad you’re enjoying the plugin! :)

We’ve recently updated our themes to include a newly-styled options panel to match the WP 3.8 styling.

We’re elbow deep in projects but if you don’t mind waiting 24 hours we can gladly take a look at the default ProPanel plugin and if not an update we can gladly provide the styling for you.

Please stay tuned for feedback.

Cheers :)

Priceless support!

We will wait it out then, first theme will go live in march, hopefully, so we still have some time. Thanks for the quick reply..

Cheers

TrueThemes

Perfect. We’ll give you a shout back very soon.

One of the best code purchases I’ve made! Works like a charm. Simple integration, easy customization. I’ll be using this for every client site from now on. I love the way it uses the admin color scheme too, looks like it came with Wordpress! Well done.

TrueThemes

Thank you so much! We truly appreciate your kind words and feedback. We’re so glad you’re enjoying the ProPanel.

Keep rockin’!

Any plans to add support for the image upload to trigger the wordpress media uploader?

Not at this time however it’s a great idea and something we’ll definitely consider.

Hello, Still no news about an update about the design of the panel ? Because it looks really outdated with WP 3.8… Thank you :)

Steps for upgrading to the new version:
  • backup all existing files
  • download new ZIP from CodeCanyon

Hello,

Loved the new design, looks great! But one bug I found is that I don’t get a notification when options are saved. I just refresh the page and hope everything was saved.

Thanks!

TrueThemes

Thank you so much for the feedback my friend. This could perhaps just be the positioning of the “success notifier” which might be popping up “off screen”.

We’re going to review this and we’ll provide more details after our testing.

Cheers :)

TrueThemes

Thank you again for this bug report.

We’ve done some testing and were able to resolve the issue.

It was a minor bug being caused by a JavaScript timeout combined with CSS positioning. We’ve adjusted both items so that the “options saved message” now shows up flawlessly everytime :)

The updated files have been submitted to CodeCanyon and should be posted shortly.

In the meantime please feel free to download the following ZIP and overwrite the 2 existing files within the pro-panel for immediate fix.

/admin/admin-interface.php
/admin/admin-style.css

Download the 2 files here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7008416/_helpdesk/pro-panel-update.zip

Thank you :)

you might want to fix 2 things, your code uses ereg_replace which is depreciated, and also if using a child theme it tries to load the admin javascripts from the parent.

other than that, its excellent.

Hi There! Thanks for the great functions!

I am wondering how to use the value from the Page Selector in a different sort of way. I adjusted it to list posts from a custom post type instead of pages, and it returns the post slug in the DB correctly… but I’m not sure how to place it in the loop?

Here’s how I modified it: //Access the WordPress Pages via an Array $tt_pages = array(); $args = array( ‘post_type’ => ‘example_post_type’, ‘posts_per_page’ => 80, ‘orderby’=> ‘title’, ‘orderby’ => ‘ASC’, ‘post_status’ => ‘publish’ ); $tt_pages_obj = get_posts($args); foreach ($tt_pages_obj as $tt_page) { $tt_pages[$tt_page->ID] = $tt_page->post_name; } $tt_pages_tmp = array_unshift($tt_pages, “Select a post:”);

Have you any advice on getting that value in a WP loop? Everything I’ve tried has failed. :)

Thanks again!

TrueThemes

Sure thing my friend.

Kindly post this question as a Ticket on our secure HelpDesk so that our lead developer can have a closer look.
