wauuuww awesome theme !!! One question : Can we use a 3d slider in this theme ? Like : http://www.modularweb.net/#/en/piecemaker/
ohhh, and sorry that i have to ask this…The picures…will they resize automatically ? like in a blog single post or do i have to doe that manually ?.. Because this happend in a previous theme that i bought :/
Many Many Thanks !
Thanks, really glad you like it!
You could customize the theme to add a 3D slider (either via a plugin, or through child theme customizations) – but keep in mind you wouldn’t be managing it through the Agility interface any longer. One issue you’ll have with a Flash slider is that it won’t be responsive – so it could possibly break the layout, or just look bad at smaller sizes.
Regarding the images, Agility allows you to set a preferred Aspect Ratio – then for each post/portfolio/slider you can choose whether to automatically crop to that size or not (you can set your preferred cropping default as well so you don’t have to set it on every post).
Hope that helps!
Clean responsive, nice Good luck with sales!
Thanks a lot, OTWthemes!
Thanks, you too!
As an existing UberMenu customer, I’ve been waiting on this theme! I imagine they’re perfect when you have both and pair them together? Much better than I expected!
Can we also expect the “Brick Layer” portion to later be introduced as a CC plugin product perhaps? I’d understand if you didn’t want to though.
Regardless, seriously awesome job! Good luck with sales!
Thanks so much, electronicpakrat! It’s taken me a while to hone Agility just so, but I hope it’s worth the wait
UberMenu integrates nicely with Agility, the only trick to remember is to disable the “Expand Full Width” option in the UberMenu Control Panel in order to appropriately position the menu. Here are some examples of the default integration settings with Agility + UberMenu: Full Width Vanilla Bar, Mobile Vanilla Bar, Full-width Black & White 2.0
I’m still considering whether or not to design and release an Agility-specific skin for UberMenu.
I’m not sure that BrickLayer is generic enough to work as a plugin – with all the different theme frameworks out there, it’s hard to have a plugin like that be both powerful and fully compatible. And there are already several on the market that do an admirable job. It’s certainly something to think about though
Thanks again, and I appreciate your business!
Thanks for the quick reply Chris ! That helps a lot
You’re welcome! Glad it helped
AWESOME THEME WITH EXCELLENT SUPPORT FINALLY ARRIVED !
Winners don’t do different things, they do things differently.
Very nice work… actively looking for several themes, today… and almost pushed the buy button… but:
Mobile browsing experience still needs some work… and, the tiny navigation words, images (ex. “x” on the drop-down menu), and locations are frustrating to use.
1. The menu system does not use the built in iPhone scrolling wheel for page selection – instead, a tiny drop-down menu is activated where we have to continue drilling down to the desired page location… as well, the second level drop-down can only be minimized by touching a very tiny “x” on the right side of the screen… that’s too frustrating to be practical.
2. The second level drop-down does not function well – or at all – on an android…and, all together the very tiny fonts/menu words are not spaced well and I had a very hard time navigating the menu… solution is to take advantage of the built-in menu/navigation native to mobile phones.
3. What’s up with the Contact form page and the warnings? Are you not including a working Contact page?
4. Without a built-in “back-to-top” image, button, or link text the mobile page finger scrolling will drive people to simple use their “back” button and abandon the site/page, altogether… it’s a must.
I have definitely bookmarked!, for later.
Thanks for your feedback and insight!
1. I’ve had a positive response overall to the Agility navigation system (the Agility HTML Template uses the same system, and my customers have given positive feedback). I consider the multi-level drill-down to be a feature; being presented with 8 second-level items rather than 40 second- and third-level items is generally better practice, and is of course why flyout menus have a level hierarchy at all; I’ve tried to recreate this in a responsive fashion for the mobile device. However, I understand that this is partially personal preference – and partially depends on the specifics of the site – and to each his own. For that reason, I’ve developed a plugin that allows you to use the select box form element to navigate instead, specifically for integrating with Agility. Please see the Agility alternative menu page for details and a demonstration
2. Android’s native “hover” interface is different from iOS’s in that the first tap on Android follows the link rather than activates the hover state only (as on iOS). On Android, a swipe initiates the hover event, while a tap follows the link immediately. Since the menu is CSS -driven, it’s at the mercy of that OS’s handling of these touch events and their translation to traditional pointer events. That being said, I agree the user experience could be improved with a little Android-targeted JS. I’ve already done something similar with my UberMenu product which makes the experience more like iOS’s hover paradigm, and I’ll look into adding this feature to Agility as well. Of course, the solution in #1 makes this moot anyway.
3. The contact form is created with the Contact Form 7 plugin (available for free in the WordPress plugin repository), and Agility includes special styles for it, as seen in the demo. The alert box is simply to alert visitors that the demo contact form is not intended for support requests – it’s just a sample form (it works, but it’s not meant to contact me, just like the address is not actually my address). I’ve added this notice due to previous experience with customers being confused about the purpose of the form, in an effort to avoid future confusion. Perhaps I should further clarify/simplify the alert.
4. Sounds like a good idea (that functionality is baked into iOS, but not Android to my knowledge), I will add this to my to-do list!
Thanks again for taking the time to provide your feedback!
Thank you for your fast reply.
1. Exactly! ... that’s what I’m talking about… good news.
2. no issues now… as this is solved with the plugin you provide, too.
3. got it… you’ve styled for Contact Form 7 plugin’s use.
4. again, thank you! ... it just keeps getting better
Well… I’m off to BUY it now!
Excellent, thanks for your business! If you have any questions, feel free to pop over to the support forum and let me know!
Just wanted to let you know that version 1.1 was just approved, with a variety of feature enhancements, including a Back-to-top button.
Thanks again for your purchase, and enjoy!
Nice, clear theme. i feel lightness of it. its not about the design. It just feel good about it. thinning to purchase it.
Thanks so much, cosmic, glad you like it!
I like this theme very much but can you answer these questions to help me make a decision:
1) Using the BrickLayer function (or something else perhaps) is it possible to just have one slider on every page, including the home page (ie. nothing on the home page or other pages but a slider of images)?
2) Are images added to the the portfolios/sliders via, say, a featured image in a post tied to a specific category? (ie. images in a slider are gathered from multiple posts each with one image published on it)?
3) does the slider auto scroll?
thank you very much
Thanks, glad you like it!
1) You could create a BrickLayer layout with just a slider, and you could apply it to any Page you want (not Blog Posts though). However, if you add a Slider to a BrickLayer template, the same Slider will appear on all Pages using that BrickLayer template. Your best option might be to use the standard Full Width page template and just add a slider shortcode to your main Page content.
Also, just to be clear, BrickLayer only affects the content area of the page – the Header and Footer do not change. If you wanted to show only a slider, with no header/footer/etc, you could create a custom template in the child theme – but that’s not something Agility does out of the box.
2) Slides and Portfolio Items are custom post types (they both work very similarly). You create multiple slides or portfolio items, just like you would a post, and you use the Featured Image functionality to set their images. You can assign them categories. Then you use an interface to group those slides/portfolio items however you like (by author, category, etc) to create your Portfolio or Slider.
Probably the best way to understand the process is to check out this video: Creating a Portfolio from Start to Finish
3) Yes, the slider auto-scrolls
perfect. thanks. maybe its in the video but for the slideshow shortcode, does it work like this:
or is there an actual area for creating/managing multiple slideshows? like how the contact form7 shortcode works : create a form and then input that forms id into a shortcode on any page?
There is an area for creating a slideshow out of slides, just like with portfolio items. Then it produces a shortcode for you with an ID, so you just paste
into your Page.
Here’s the video on Creating a Slider, which should make things a lot clearer
Hey there ! Nice Theme.
Is there a possibility to change the english language in the Layout or even the Admin Panel ?
There’s no multi-language support built into Agility, but I intend to fully localize the theme so that it will be translation-ready (most of it is already localized, but there are a few items left to take care of that are on my to do list).
thank you for the answer.
So were do i have to change the english parts/words seen on the homepage?
And a second question:
If you release awesome updates, how do i install it without destroying my “settings/layout” is there a backup function built in?
All of the text on the home page can be controlled through the admin panel. There is very little text on the front end that would need to be translated at all, since most of it is configurable rather than part of the theme.
The settings are stored in the database, so when you overwrite the theme, it won’t affect settings. When you customize a theme, you should never edit any theme core files. There are several ways you can customize Agility without worrying about update issues, and they are explained here: How to Customize Agility
Hope that helps!
I wanted to let you know that Agility 1.1 has now been released, and it is now Translation ready! It’s fully internationalized and includes a .pot file.
Hope it helps you out!
Can the flex slider be full width ?
The slider will expand to the width of its container. The widest container is 940px. If you wanted it to be wider than 940px, you’d need to make a customization to include a full-width container.
Hope that helps
Yay, it finally arrived. Great, as usual
If you add language support, I’ll buy it.
Good luck with sales!
Thanks! Localization is on my to do list, hopefully get it done this coming week
Wanted to let you know that version 1.1 has been released, and is now translation ready – it’s internationalized and includes a .pot file
And thanks for your purchase!
You had me at “Hello”...
Love the secret stash. I agree with you.
Thanks very much!
