Is the Production Child Theme still available or not?
Info on the Internet is confusing since it stays on forever and often is not dated. From what I could see, Production was a great child theme for video. THAT’S what I’m looking for – the BEST responsive child theme to display a LOT of videos.
Have a suggestion for me?

Where are you seeing it for sale? Production was retired. You could possibly contact the theme developers at – http://designsbynickthegeek.com/ to see if you can purchase it directly from him.March 28, 2013 at 9:10 am #31747
Keep in mind, you can use ANY of the StudioPress themes to display your videos, so I’d select a mobile responsive one that you like the layout of and start there.
Check out the News Theme. It’s responsive and might be great for video content.

@anitac There are lots of posts all over the Internet about this theme when I search for best child theme for video. Clearly I don’t see it on Studio Press.
Have any idea WHY it was retired?

No, I don’t. But, as I stated, you can contact Nick directly since he was the developer. I loved that format too and was disappointed when it was retired. It was a great theme.March 28, 2013 at 9:16 am #31756
@cdils I see what you say, however…
I’m really looking for a child theme that is DESIGNED to play video. Unless I’m missing something, Agency (for instance) will let me embed my videos but doesn’t have a way to put in a light table or gallery. I added a plugin which was highly recommended and it works great on my site BUT doesn’t work on tables or phones – the video is hardly recognizable as video.
So… just as I can have a listing of previous posts, I’m looking to have a listing of the videos I display WITHOUT just adding lots of YouTube videos to a page (that REALLY slows down the loading of the page).
I want a gallery that stays responsive AND a way to show videos that is also responsive.

You could take a look at the Amped Theme, which is designed for videos, but it’s not responsive at this time. Your best bet will probably be to find a plugin like you’re describing, but with responsive capabilities. Sorry I haven’t worked with one, so I don’t have a good recommendation.

@cdlis Thanks for your comment.
Responsive is really important to me, so I’ll use one that IS and then get the videos to work too.
QUESTION: I see that Agency is responsive (it’s what we use on http://DrMarcAndCharlie.com). HOWEVER, it won’t let me use a header jpg shorter than 977px (I think it is) instead of the 240 or so that others seem to use.
I can’t even tell which version of this Child Theme I’m using or if it automatically updates.
IS it possible that the most up-to-date Agency is reponsive but the one I bought 9 months ago is NOT and it hasn’t upgrade?
Also… WHERE can I see what version is being used? Also… do the Child Themes automatically update or only the framework?
