Folious Theme

Created by: WebHive
Compatibility: SocialEngine PHP 4.2.0 - 4.7.X


  • Could you install this theme for me?

    Absolutely! We charge only 15usd for installation. We will need you to provide SocialEngine admin details adn in some cases ftp access to set permission settings. You can purchase installation separately.
  • What browsers does it support?

    The theme supports all popular web browsers.
  • Does it includes Ajax Slider?

    No, but you can buy our Ajax Slider separately. This theme has special css styles for it.
  • Is it complex to change or modify Folious theme?

    Our html/css code is clean and polished, so it's not very complex to change it (for example for set new header image or color)
  • I'm looking for something special instead of template. Can you help?

    Sure, we can create stylish custom design based on your requests. Just let us know more about what you need and show few examples of designs you like. Don't hesitate to contact us.

    I really like the look of this theme, but after installing it, I discovered that pretty much no plugins work properly with it. I've had to pay for custom work of nearly every single plugin just to get this stupid theme looking how it's supposed to look. Even then... this overrides some of the default css for the plugins, so it's just difficult to get things looking right.

    This could possibly be a general issue with the SocialEngine platform... the plugin developers say won't provide support for their plugins if you're using a custom theme, and the theme makers won't provide support for their theme if you're using any plugins (aside from the core plugins). It drives me insane that they can't come up with a system that's more standardized so that plugins and themes work together out of the box.

    But either way, all of my plugins worked fine before, and now that I installed this theme, nearly of my plugins need to be customized to fit the theme. More money down the tube. And I also have the pleasure of knowing that every future plugin I buy will also need to be customized to fit this theme.

    My suggestion is stick with one of the default themes and try to simply tweak it enough to look how you want it to look. It's a lousy solution, but better than having to fork out so much money for custom work.

      Hi Jim

      I can understand your feeling. But I'll try to explain the situation.
      Often every additional plugin goes with it's own styles. Some of them have styles hard coded to look good with default theme only.

      Our themes support standard SE plugins, WebHive plugins and Hire-Experts plugins (more than 50 in total). However there are more than 500 plugins for SE PHP, new plugins and updates appear daily and we don't have access to all of them.
      Even if we had access to all plugins and added styles for all of them - that would make theme bloated and heavy.

      I'm afraid there aren't much we can actually do in this case unless modify theme for specific plugins you plan to use.
      As theme creators we never reject this type of work for our themes and ask for minimal fees for it.
      Unfortunately that's impossible to provide this service as a part of free support.
      Jim, I hope you understand and I'll be grateful if you will reconsider your review.

      Regards, Eugene

      I originally had this as not recommended, but changed it to recommended. The reason is, although my initial concerns still exist, these are issues that you'll have with all 3rd party themes. And if your'e going to buy one... the support at WebHive are far above average, and will help you with your issues.

      They spoke to me about my concerns, and clearly wanted to help. Ultimately though, this needs to be addressed by SocialEngine because there are just not enough standards for plugin developers and template developers. Hopefully SE will get their game together one day and provide the 3rd party developers some real standards to use so things will work together. It would be amazing if the themes/plugins with SE could work as seamlessly as Wordpress themes and plugins do.

    First of all i would like to say that Webhive customer services is one of the best.

    Everytime i have a question, problem, customization request, i contact their support team, and got replay within a few hours (Most of the customizations where done free of charge by their support team).

    I really recommended on Folious theme, which is a nice, clean, and very well coded.
    So If you wish to boost your site with a new fresh professional look - This theme is for you!

    This is by far the best theme I have seen for SE. It makes my site look very stylish and clean. There are many themes out there that make a site look very crowded, Folious doesn't. It is easy on the eye.

    Exactly what the title says, the theme is really smooth and well designed. The colors work great for any type of social engine. This works really well with their Ajax Slider too. The developers were prompt and quick in fixing problems you might have. Great product from a great company.

    The Webhive team did a great job here! Beautiful template to start with, and they adjusted my site and made my plugins compatible in just a few days. Willing to change every aspect of the layout. Quick and excellent client support via Skype.
    During the process I could ask the team as they where going to make changes and it happend allmost in realtime.

    Thanks Webhive!

    Great work! I really enjoy this template. Customer support was also very responsive to all my questions.
  • October 25th, 2011 by Marcin N.

    I’m very pleased with the theme and even more with the company.

    Out of multiple developers for SE I worked with I can say with full confidence that this was the most impressive and most professional.
    I will be most certainly going back to WbHive for all my needs that are not necessarily limited to SE work.
