  1. Hey, the theme is great and it’s perfect for my next project. It saves me from lots of hours of coding so thanks πŸ™‚

    But what’s with the link in the footer? Why is it saying Elemental theme when I’m using Nominate? Can people who bought the theme change the link to something like “This site is using the Nominate Social Voting theme created by PRO THEME DESIGN”?

    1. Hi – it’s great you like the look of the theme. You can use hooks and filters to change the footer link to whatever you like, or you can remove the footer links entirely using the admin panel.

  2. It’s a fantastic theme I have bookmarked for ‘one day.’ I have a great niche to use it in – just a broke combat veteran who can’t afford it! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for all your great posts here!

    1. Hey Thomas – thanks for the kind words. Let’s hope the ‘one day’ happens πŸ™‚ If you google around you may find some special offers. Also I am thinking about having a special offer on Christmas day so follow me on Twitter in case that happens πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks, I certainly will follow you, and Google around concerning deals. Nominate is a great theme I hope to see more sites popping up with, reflecting the various ways it can be modified to fit a variety of niches.

    All the best this holiday season!

  4. Hey again, Ben. I’m finally looking at purchasing – hoping I can find a special deal or coupon to help with the price! Is this still a project you work on updating and adding new pieces to, or is it basically a done deal? Also, how does it deal with affiliate links? And finally, I noticed in the plugin directory somewhere there is a toolbar (along the bottom) available that pops up when a user leaves your site so they can still vote/share the item from your site – any idea on integrating something like that?


  5. Having a few issues with registering on the forum over there, Ben. Any way you can contact me? I have the site up, but for some reason there’s a vote button way up in the upper-left hand corner of the site, and my thumbnails for posts aren’t displaying the actual picture – they’re just showing a stock WordPress image and a circular loading icon.

    Everything else seems to be working great and I’ll be adding content over the next few days to full flesh out the site.

    Any help? You can view it at WordPress Site.

    1. Hi Thomas, sorry about the problems.

      I have fixed the vote button mis-positioning, if you update styles.css from the Nominate download in the accounts control panel then it will fix itself. The issue happened because I corrected a mispelling (incomming -> incoming) and that changed the vote buttons class name. Changing the class name in the css fixed the problem.

      The issue with the thumbnails is what happens when the auto screenshot is being taken. The loader should go away after a couple of minutes, once the screenshot has been taken.

      As for the forum… I don’t know why that isn’t working. I will reset the password and send it over to you.

  6. Hello, Ben – no problem at all, thanks for getting back to me! I noticed the ‘incomming’ thing and thought I’d mention it, but sounds like you were all over it. πŸ˜‰

    Understood about the auto screenshot, thanks!

    I wasn’t too sure about the forum issue either. I clicked register, and it just reset the page each time I tried to register. Who knows!

    Hope your week is going well, thanks for the help!

  7. Is there any way out we can download this nominate wordpress theme for free ? Please let me know, thanks !

    1. No, I’m afraid not. I make my living by selling themes like this, and if I gave it away for free then I would not be able to feed my family.

  8. Love the theme. We are a nonprofit and are using this to nominate our third beneficiary in our big event for the year. It’s perfect!…. except I’m having a hard time figuring out how to edit a few items.

    1. Where do I set the parameters for voting? I want voters to register, but not with wordpress, just with the nomination site. If I can’t do this, how do I turn off register so the login page doesn’t come up? Can I control voters so only one vote per person per day?

    2. I have the same issue with the thumbnail image as well…. Will it upload eventually?

    Your help is appreciated.


    1. Hi Greta – glad you’re liking Nominate however this isn’t a support forum. If you could post your request on the Nominate helpdesk, along with your purchase reference – then I would be happy to help you. Please also give as much information as possible as I am not 100% clear about what you are asking currently.

  9. Also, when I nominate an item, I hit “submit new” and it would be awesome to get some kind of notification, like “Thank you. To view your submission, refresh your page.”

    Otherwise, I’m kind of sitting there not sure what to do. Just some user feedback.


  10. Any thoughts on using this and affiliate links? I have a website that reviews games, and I think this vote theme could be interesting, but each post of mine is basically a short description/review of the game, and a link/picture to Amazon product that is an affiliate link.

    I could see this being good for the sections of the site about FAQs, or tips…but under the game sections, especially if someone submits a game, not so sure. Any thoughts? Hoping it might interest you a bit since you run a pretty cool gaming site yourself! I just bought three gaming domains, LOL. The one I’m thinking about using this theme on is an exact match 3-keyword domain that gets 3600 searches on Google a month. So nothing crazy but enough to get my foot in the door.

    Anyway, appreciate any help!

    1. Hi Thomas – I don’t see anything wrong with using the theme for promoting affiliate products. What sort of concerns were you considering? I don’t really see how this would be different to any normal affiliate website.

  11. Hi Ben,

    I need to purchanse this theme. please share the download link along with price. One more thing if i need any help could i get it in future.


    1. Hi Sanjay – I’m afraid the theme was retired 4 or 5 years ago now. It’s well out of date and likely won’t work with WordPress any more. Sorry about that.

      1. Hi Ben, Really this is a nice theme but unfortunately, you told retired 4 or 5 years ago but I found some people are still using your theme without any problem. Can I get this theme again, please? Let me know. Regards, Amber

      2. Hi Amber – people may be using it but it’s no longer available. I don’t have the code. Sorry about that.
