Just purchased Socrates. I have of number of high end themes and hope this one is as good as or BETTER than them. Some quick video tutorials would help. Much Success
The video tutorials are located at
You should have seen the links to the installation video right below the download link in the member's area.
Hey Dan...loving the tutorials etc so far...could you put the note about Super Cache in the members area also? I was getting frustrated as to why my changes weren't updating...so I came to the forum to see if I could figure it out. Here it is! I deactivated the plugin and now my changes are showing up just fine!
Done.. sorry it's on our contact form and in FAQ comments, but now it's prominent in Sidebar.
Thanks Dan for so speedily taking action on my suggestion!
Hopefully this helps a lot of other folks and saves you some time in answering the same question too
Now that you mention it was in the comments I found it...but it was pretty far down the list so I hadn't seen it before...and as for the contact form, well, hadn't tried that yet as I thought I'd go to the forum first!
So What is Socrates Anyway? :)
Dan, I was considering a testimonial, but realized that I know very little about WordPress. In fact, I have never done a lick of WordPress other than Socrates. So I really have no idea what is Socrates, and what is WordPress. It's all the same to me. Not sure if that is good or bad....
Well, that is a dilemma..
Socrates is everything in the Socrates Dashboard panel.. wordpress controls the rest..
The Travails of Disabling Super Cache
Sunday, January 9th, 2011 at 12:03am Yokohama, Japan
So, as I make my way thru the teething problems of installing Socrates on WP for the first time I note that I am supposed to disable Super Cache plugin.
I have tried to do this but I get this message: UNINSTALL_WPSUPERCACHE must be set to a non-blank value in uninstall.php.
I don't recall a message about disabling Super Cache Plugin highlighted in Bold in my Socrates welcoming email. Anyway, any help on how to actually accomplish your request much appreciated.
I am looking forward in anticipation to actually seeing Socrates installed.

Reason: clarifiying which message I was talking about
Disabling WP Super Cache is not required to install, but we find that many users don't realize that they can't see design changes if it's installed.
I don't know why you would have seen a message about it in your welcome email, and I can assure you it's not there. There's certainly no reason to notify 100% of our users about a potential issue when it only affects a few percent.
And there is nothing stopping you from seeing Socrates installed because of WP Super Cache.
However, it's at the top of our support forum because before it was posted there we had multiple posts per day that were related to it's function.
Another option to uninstalling is to change the plugin's settings so that it's disabled for logged in users. So that would be my advice to you.
Goto the Wp Super Cache settings and look for option to disable for known users, loggedin users etc.
