Online Publishing is Lots of Fun with Transcript

We always worked hard towards releasing new themes that are a perfect blend of technology, SEO, user friendliness, and utility; our new Transcript theme is not any different.

The great success of our Newspaper Theme series had encouraged us to come up with another news/magazine based theme that is clean, simple yet powerful, and fresh enough to let your content speak. Since we always wanted to know what readers would like to see in a new theme, we have taken into account their feedbacks based on a preview of the pre-release theme, and in fact had got some excellent ideas to implement into Transcript.

A large share of user feedback was in favor of including an eye catchy slider and an advertisement management module inbuilt in the Transcript. Hence, in Transcript theme, we have included an innovative advertisement module that lets users enable/disable seven different ad spots, plus a slider, which can easily set to be static/auto rotating via theme control panel. Another innovative addition to the new theme is the Media bar, which is intelligent enough to recognize whether the post is a Photo or Video news, and groups either Video or Photo to display on Media Bar of the theme at a time.

Implement Transcript, and you’ll soon realize newspaper blogging can also be lots of fun. It has some of the best features tailor made for newspaper sites, plus a user friendly and appealing design, with different color combinations. We also provide regular updates to all our users, so that they’ll always have the latest themes/features in their websites.

    Very impressed theme, I like the way you put the ads. But the video thumbnails on homepage seems not working..?

    • Mehmet   November 3, 2009 at 7:17 PM

      Thanks Roy. Videos are being streamed from vimeo. It takes a while to start after clicking on play.

    Great looking theme Mehmet, very well done.

    Just one thing please, the image rotation section at the top left of the theme seems to be behaving oddly.

    1/ Each time picture is rotated the text below jumps and flashes once.

    2/ When the whitehouse image is shown it overlaps slightly the text below.

    Just making you aware of this so you can take a look.

    Keep up the good work, really looking forward to purchasing and using this new theme.



    • Mehmet   November 4, 2009 at 10:06 AM

      1- Fade effect is configurable, can easily be turned off

      2- I couldn't reproduce it John. Would you mind telling us what browser you have used to test it?

      Thanks for nice comment

    Great news theme, very clean and fresh. I like it!

    • Mehmet   November 4, 2009 at 10:07 AM

      We are glad to see that comments are coming that way 🙂

  5. Andreas Gerads   November 4, 2009 at 10:59 AM

    Bought and installed – it`s absolutely fantastic! Good bye thesis theme…



    • Mehmet   November 4, 2009 at 11:09 AM

      I am glad to hear that you liked it Andreas. One thing we forget to include into the installation guide is the size of photos to include. Make sure always to upload 8:6 ratio images for best output

      • Andreas Gerads   November 4, 2009 at 2:44 PM

        I´m trying hard and some look really bad, but we`ll get that working 🙂

      • Andreas Gerads   November 4, 2009 at 10:54 PM

        Mehmet, I have some questions left, can you please grant me access to the forums (user "Andreas", registered, but not able to post)?

        Thank you


        • Mehmet   November 6, 2009 at 6:21 PM

          Your registration is approved Andreas

  6. Premium Theme Info   November 4, 2009 at 8:45 PM

    This theme is good, but it need a little more time to load the homepage, I am not sure if the readers will like a site like this.

    • Mehmet   November 4, 2009 at 9:17 PM

      It loads as fast as all of our other themes. I didn't see any delay with site loading time

  7. Todd   November 4, 2009 at 10:29 PM

    Damn, Mehmet, everytime I get my sites set up with your themes you introduce an even better one. Transcript is pretty much the bomb!

    • Mehmet   November 6, 2009 at 6:20 PM

      Good new that the themes you have will have an update pretty soon Todd 🙂

  8. Richard Dennis   November 6, 2009 at 3:08 AM

    Solid design and I LOVE THE AD PLACEMENT

    Looking forward to a great sale like buy 2 for the price of 1

    Great Job.

    Richard Dennis

    • Mehmet   November 6, 2009 at 6:22 PM

      Thanks Richard

      We run that campaign for more than half year Richard. As of now we don't have anything in mind to to start another campaign.

  9. editor   November 9, 2009 at 10:58 PM

    Best yet. This is an excellent theme and further proves the dedication and professionalism of the team behind them. I literally can not wait to implement this theme on our new site!


  10. Tricia   November 10, 2009 at 5:42 AM

    Mehmet, is this theme MU compatible? Are you planning to add category rss feeds?

    • Mehmet   November 10, 2009 at 11:51 AM

      The MU version is not built yet. But the current version works fine with WordPress and multi-authors. Category RSS feeds can easily be added on navigation using one of our tutorials on forums

  11. Travellingman   November 11, 2009 at 11:05 AM

    Is it possible to have som kind of a blogroll on this theme?

    • Mehmet   November 11, 2009 at 11:08 AM

      It is extremely easy to place a blogroll widget on sidebar using built in widgets feature of WordPress

  12. zanardin   November 15, 2009 at 1:54 AM


    I would buy it as soon as I can.

    Another great theme Mehmet.

    And support service is also "deluxe".

  13. Piotr   November 17, 2009 at 3:00 PM

    In my opinion there is a problem with category on post:… No information where I'm, no category display, no path line HOME > Category > Subcategory>. No headline with category (menu).

    Second thing – you are here:… you have Home » Business, BUSINESS on menu line is active – black, correct.

    After click some post – and… no menu in black, no path… Why? It's in opposite with usability rules.

    • Mehmet   November 19, 2009 at 2:20 PM

      It is not a problem Piotr, it is a configuration to be set up actually. You can easily adapt breadcrumb plugin and display it over the all pages. We kept that info only on archive pages, but that can easily be implemented all over the site.

  14. Fernando   November 21, 2009 at 3:29 PM

    Hello Mehmet, In first time, congratulations for this worpress theme. It is really fantastic. And in the second time, sorry, because I write you from Spain and my english is not very good, but I will try to explain.

    We are working in a future blog and we want to use the transcript theme and I'd like to traslate to spanish, but I am only a user and I don't have knowledge of computer. is it easy? I'd like know too if this theme work with the worpress 2.6.2 version. Thanks a lot for all and, once again, contratulations por your work.

    • Mehmet   November 21, 2009 at 10:39 PM

      Thanks Fernando,

      We have a single file where you need to translate English terms into Spanish. You don't need any technical knowledge for translation. We also provide support in our support for further questions

  15. Later   November 22, 2009 at 8:02 PM

    If I buy the standard package can i add plugins to it?

    • Mehmet   November 22, 2009 at 8:14 PM

      Yes you can plugins as well as editing the template files

  16. Fernando   November 30, 2009 at 3:26 PM

    Thanks for all, Mehmet. With your help, everything is much easier. The theme works perfectly. This is a autentic premium technical service!! Congratulations

  17. Videosiden   December 14, 2009 at 1:16 PM

    Have been using this theme for about one month now, an i am very pleased with it!

  18. Jeffrey Sykes   December 18, 2009 at 11:28 PM

    Mehmet: I bought Transcript and installed it with ease. As I tinker with the theme settings in admin, I see that most aspects are self-evident and well thought out.

    Many thanks for this theme and the simplicity.

    I have moved over from Joomla to WP and am very happy to have found your theme.

    My site is currently in beta phase.

  19. web designer kanpur   December 27, 2009 at 2:46 PM

    Hey mehmat this is pretty impressive. I am sure that you must have given weeks into it.


  20. Kanhema   January 4, 2010 at 5:18 PM

    Transcript is professional, easily accessible and intuitive… everything falls into place and works seamlessly. Thanks Mehmet!!!

  21. Richard Dennis   February 1, 2010 at 2:04 AM

    Professional design, responsive author , the best design for a newspaper online service

  22. Richard Dennis   February 1, 2010 at 2:09 AM

  23. Giuliano Romano   February 2, 2010 at 9:56 PM

  24. Daniel   February 18, 2010 at 7:22 PM

    We have installed Transcript on our website and our page views have increased since. Check out how our site looks with this theme:

    Highly recommended to sites with a lot of content!

  25. Elias Krzynowek   March 5, 2010 at 8:25 AM

    Have you got to use a Mastercard to put the order?

    • Mehmet   March 5, 2010 at 11:48 AM

      Just click on buy now button on purchase page, and start filling form on checkout page

  26. Plus Size Clothing M   March 7, 2010 at 9:24 AM


    Thank you for putting together this theme. It is one of the best out there. We have adopted it for our site and are very happy with it (not to mention the site looks great):

    Great work, keep it up!

  27. ZenKimchi   April 1, 2010 at 6:17 AM

    I bought it last week, did a few tweaks, and I love it!
    It's the most stable WP template I've used yet, and I regularly set up WP and Joomla sites. One wish I would love to add is a "Popular Posts" tab next to the "Opinions" and "Posts" tab.

  28. michael   April 18, 2010 at 12:01 PM

    Verry nice theme Mehmet, like always but i have a question , how can I modify the menu so it will look like, or how to change the vertical drop down to horizontal position.


    • Mehmet   April 22, 2010 at 12:33 AM

      That seems to be a custom mode, you would need a developer to hire Michael

  29. ziggy121   May 15, 2010 at 3:51 PM

    Hi Mehmet,

    I just love the Transcript theme!

    Is it possible to have more sections like "world news" and "entertainment" om the fornt page? I would like to have atleast three sections like this for my website, and wondered if its possible without too much tweaking, as Im kind of a neewbie at this yet.

    • Mehmet   May 15, 2010 at 8:49 PM

      We can but please submit that question into support forums as a support request so we can help you there.

  30. Leo   November 18, 2010 at 6:14 PM


    nice themes all : ) I ask about MU platform, are Gabfire themes now MU compatible?

    • Mehmet   November 20, 2010 at 12:17 AM

      Yes, all our themes are WordPress Multi-Site compatible

  31. Marc   June 10, 2014 at 9:04 AM

    I tried the demo and it looks good! I’ll recommend this to my team for our next project.
