We are usually asked about:

How to update the theme?

All our theme updates are available in your ThemeForest.com profile for free: simply redownload it in “Downloads” tab.

At the first step we advise you to rename your current theme folder to something like: …/wp-content/themes/dt-THEME_NAME-old/. It will help you to save custom changes of the template.

At the next stage you need to install the theme in the usual way.

How to make the theme load faster?

  1. Select “Static CSS” option in Theme Options >> Misc (for Nimble, PressMate and PurePress themes).
  2. Install cache plugin.
  3. If possible, decrease size of your images.
  4. Deactivate needless plugins.
  5. Decrease number of items (portfolios, albums, catalogs, photos) per page.

What cache plugin do you suggest to use?

We would like to advise you to install W3 Total Cache plugin.

How many pages with slideshow am I able to create?

You are able to create as many slideshows as you want! Slideshow can be enabled for any page template or post.

Remember you can choose which one of them will be set as the Homepage one by following: Dashboard >> Settings >> Reading >> Front page displays >> A static page (select below) >> Front page

Blog page ignores custom page title and settings

Simply do not select this page in Settings >> Reading as a post page. Regular page with “Blog” template displays a title from the Title field.

Where i can find benefits icons?

There are separate folder in your theme download package with all png icons used on our demo. You can also find plenty of other free icons here: www.iconmonstr.com

How to enable MonsterID?

  2. navigate to line 765
  3. change the “dt_validate_gravatar( $comment->comment_author_email )” to “1 || dt_validate_gravatar( $comment->comment_author_email )”

Where can I find full demo content?

This is dummy for all demo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zgg0dbec15n88ep/the7.wordpress.2013-09-19.xml

Note 2 things:

  1. It’s huge, so we cannot guarantee you’ll be able to install it.
  2. Images on demo are copyrighted and you cannot use them without purchasing proper licenses.

What about themes autoupdate?

At this moment themes from ThemeForest cannot update automatically like themes from WordPress library. (Well there is an API and even a ready-made plugin for that… but it’s still very raw and buggy.) But we are working hard to implement autoupdate feature in one of the nearest updates.

So in order to update theme, you need to:

  1. backup your current theme folder;
  2. rename/delete older version of theme;
  3. install newest version of theme.

Testimonials:

  • "In 2004, members of the Project Committee of Caister Lifeboat Service in the UK began to explore the replacement of its existing lifeboat. After thorough research and many personal discussions, the team reached a unanimous decision to purchase a Valentijn 2000 built by Habbeké.

    Throughout the contract negotiations and the period of construction it became obvious to all concerned within the Caister team that Arie de Waart and his loyal team of employees were not only first class craftsmen who take an immense pride in their work but they are also people whom you can trust implicitly. This enabled carrying out business with them a pleasure, and continued with their after sales service.

    We would have no reservation in recommending Habbeké shipyard of Volendam to any perspective client."

  • "During my thirty years service with the KNRM, I have been associated with many different life-boats; twenty of these years as skipper/coxswain. My longest period was with the Eierland type of boat where the work was hard, the boat was under-powered, and you were always cold, wet and tired. This changed a lot in 1990 when we started training for the new type of life-boat – the RIBs. I was honoured to “lay the keel” of our new boat, the ADRIAAN HENDRIK, a VALENTIJN built by HABBEKÉ SHIPYARD. I worked on the Adriaan Hendrik for five years. A lot of this work was experimental and can assure the reader that the VALENTIJN RIBS are an enormous improvement in life-boat technology. I would like to compliment the team at Habbeké for producing such strong and trustworthy vessels. One can rely upon them in all sorts of weather, and sea conditions, a tribute to the vision and expertise at your wharf".

  • "Once you have sailed in one of these vessels, you will never want to return to the previous designs … They are especially suited to manoeuvring in breaking water, ground seas and heavy surf are no longer as dreaded as they were!".  "For instance, if you have to get to a yacht that is aground amid breaking seas, you go in as close as you can, turn head-on to the surf, and then drop astern until you can get the tow across.  Then it is just a question of putting on the power and towing the vessel out into safer waters".

    In a traditional lifeboat, this was just not possible - you would get turned and twisted at every wave" Furthermore, the jets allow you get more and safer power: recently we had to reach a wooden sailing vessel trapped among a breaking ground sea.  But with careful handling of the buckets, we reached her at about 10 knots.  To do this we would approach the breakers head on and take the high ones by pushing the bow into the breaking water as it hit!  By altering the thrust on the twin buckets one can keep the boat in balance, and going forward - of course in the dark it is a little more difficult and we have been knocked all over the place as well; but she always recovers and allows us to carry out our tasks.

    But these vessels also allow you to run before a following sea - they are after all very fast and manoeuvrable.  Their manoeuvrability also always allows one to get a tow across and the power of the boats then enables one to tow big or small, victims to safety".

Custom built

Our range of aluminium vessels lend themselves to tremendous amounts of customization. we can start with a basic hull and easily change the length, beam, cabin layout, deck configuration, etc. to suit customer’s individual requirements.

A personalized approach

At Habbeke Shipyard, we make it our business to provide a personalized service, and to do it very well. We value integrity and trust in our relationships and we recognize that these traits form a strong foundation for greater achievement.

We believe that one size shouldn’t fit all and can tailor our approach to:

  • Only custom built vessels including all wishes of the clients
  • Provide specialist advice for clients facing specific challenges.
  • The result must also be a user-friendly vessel and a member of the team is also active after delivery, making sure the boat performs to these previous expectations.

Why Aluminium

Aluminium is without question the most well reputed material for the construction of robust workboats. A relatively large craft built from aluminium will be lighter and stronger than if it where built from fiberglass. Marine grade aluminium has such high impact resistance, that our vessels can withstand a collision that would seriously damage other (fiberglass) vessels. Marine grade aluminium also has excellent corrosion resistance, in most cases aluminium boats will last up to 50 years in the harsh saltwater environment. Aluminium is by far the lowest maintenance material that could be used for boat manufacturing. Aluminium does not rust or rot. Residual values for aluminium boats are high – making overall cost of ownership low.
