Hi Chris,

Great work… Cool design. Can’t wait for your forum theme….

Best regards, Paul

sevenspark

Thanks, Paul :)

The “forum theme” is based on Agility, with a few style customizations. I’m considering releasing a child theme for Agility at some point which would mimic the forum theme.

Best,

Hi,

Great theme. I have updated to VER1 .1, and I can see the shortcode button in my visual wysiwyg editor, but no button in the html editor… then… when I click the lightning button, NOTHING . nothing pops up, no lightbox or anything like in your video?

Am I doing something wrong?

Jay

Hi Jay,

It sounds like you have a javascript error preventing Agility’s JS from running. For example, if a plugin loads on the Edit Post page, and throws an error, it’ll stop all the other scripts from executing.

If you’d like to post a support request over in the forum, and send me some credentials via my contact form, I’ll take a look for you to figure out what’s going on :)

All the best,

Chris

Hi Chris,

still love this theme !! but i have one question.. When i open a blog or portfolio image on my phone ( android ) it opens in lightbox very small, and when i press the enlarge butten it blows out of the lightbox frame ?.. Is this correct ?

Thanks :)

sevenspark

Hi qbuzz,

Thanks :)

Yes, that’s the way PrettyPhoto works. However, it seems to me that lightboxes are kind of silly on mobile devices anyway, so I’ll look into adding the ability to just disable prettyPhoto on small devices.

Best,

Chris

sevenspark

Wanted to let you know that in the latest version (1.1.2, just released), I’ve disabled prettyPhoto for mobile devices, and for post featured images, they link instead to their posts, so that it’s even easier to open posts. :)

Best,

Chris

Hi Chris, i bought this theme as soon as the v1.1 went out! Clean and clear. Unfortunatly, today, all the cropped portfolio items does’nt display cropped! Any clue to where i manage it? In the portfolion items setting, i checked the box for cropped image also.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you, it was on the archive portfolio menu type that does’nt show the cropping! So i created custom portfolio and my menu now links to pages. Thank you.

Another question here is about a blog page. Can I have a blog layout type out of the box. I just need the blog to display standard blog aspect. For the moment, i use a brick layer custom layout but in the choice, i can’t find the standard blog layout… and have to use the blog grid layout.

I hope it sounds clear and thank you for the support!

Other thing regarding the Agility Recent Posts Widget, is that possible that i have a choice for the grid colums that fit the sidebar size… http://mariefrancepinard.com/ecritures/chez-nous/

Lastly, i did’nt find how to use the .pot file. Do i just have to translate it in text editor or edit it and save it to the language name?

Encore merci! / Thanks again.

Lp(* I give you 10 stars out of 5!

sevenspark

Hi lpday,

I’m not sure I understand the question regarding “Can I have a blog layout type out of the box”. You can either set up your blog as your front page, or as a secondary page, via the normal WordPress Reading Settings. Once you have your blog page set up, you can switch the display between “Grid” and “Standard” in your Agility Control Panel > Blog > Blog Loop > Blog Layout.

I’ll add the Recent Posts Widget in the sidebar idea to my “potential future enhancements” list :)

Regarding translations, you can do this via PoEdit, or your Translation Tool of choice, as described in the WordPress Codex.

Thanks, glad you like Agility! If you have any further questions, please post them over in the Support Form – thanks! :)

Best,

Chris

that would be great ! ..Thanks Chris :D

This template includes PSD files?

sevenspark

Nope – the theme was designed in-browser, so there are no PSDs to be had. :)

Best,

Chris

Chris, looks great. I had a couple of questions related to contact forms:

1. Can multiple forms be added, or do I need to install Contact Form 7?
2. Is there any support for non-image lightbox content? Oftentimes I like to design a “click to contact” button and have it bring up a lightbox with a contact form.

Thanks sir, great looking theme and I look forward to being a paid customer!

sevenspark

Hi flyinghstudios,

Thanks very much! :)

1. All contact forms require the Contact Form 7 plugin. Once you have that installed, you can add as many as you want.

2. Lightboxes can contain images or embedded videos, but at this time there is no built-in support for other types of content, sorry.

Hope that helps!

Chris

Sevenspark:

As an UberMenu fan I know you have coding talents. I’m intrigued by Agility; lots of development forethought. The theme appears to have a more minimal approach to the backgrounds and textures coming with the theme. That’s not a problem. I have lots of custom backgrounds and textures to incorporate with my theme customizations. Looks like your layout would allow targeting of the backgrounds for the slider, tagline areas, ... Do you have a custom background loader in your admin panels or can you use CSS with custom images and textures to dress up a child theme effectively?

Your comments are appreciated, TDR

sevenspark

Hi TDR ,

Thanks for your kind words! :)

There isn’t a custom background loader in the Control Panel, but it would be very easy to replace the backgrounds via the child theme’s CSS – just set the background on the #page.wrap div. Agility comes with a ready-to-use child theme so that you can get up and running quickly with your customizations.

Hope that helps – thanks for your interest!

Chris

Hey Seven,

So with the #page.wrap, I assume thats the same as a full background image?

i.e. same as Backstrech? http://srobbin.com/jquery-plugins/backstretch/

Thanks! Joe

sevenspark

Hi Joe,

The #page.wrap is the light grey or white full-width background. But it’s not really the same as Backstretch.

For support requests, kindly post them in the forum, thanks!

SuperNICE !!! thanks for the update !!

sevenspark

Glad you like it :) Thanks for your purchase!

Chris

hello! i need to disable all links on featured images. i don’t want them to open on lightbox neither to the link. is that possible? thanks! :)

sevenspark

Hi Victor,

You can disable the lightbox in the post lists/loops, which will instead link to the post page. You can disable the lightbox on the single posts, which will then remove the link altogether.

If you want to remove the links from the post lists/loops, that is not currently possible without customizing the core code, sorry. It’s something I’ll look into as a future possibility, though :)

If you have further questions, please post them in the forum http://support.sevenspark.com – thanks!

Chris

Hi Chris I cannot find in the demo site the following features: 1) Accordition 2) Toggles Can you please add a page on the demo site with them?

I have also noticed that the tabs and the selectors for the portfolio are not displaying properly on the iPhone? Is this something that you are going to have a look at it?

Do you have any plan to add the video slider as in the HTML version?

Thanks for your support.

sevenspark

Hi abentivoglio,

Thanks for the heads-up on the portfolio filters on mobile Safari – apparently mobile Safari on iPhone does not fire the load event for images correctly, so the filters were not applied. I’ve developed a fix, and will release it in an update this week.

I haven’t had any trouble with any of the tabs. Of course, on an iPhone, the tabs themselves will wrap due to the screen size in portrait mode. That is part of their responsiveness.

At this point, I plan to look into adding video slider capability at some point, but I can’t say definitively whether or not it will end up being a feature.

If you have further questions, feel free to contact me via my contact form

Best,

Chris

$45 this morning was $35, that is 30% more Why??????????????????????????

sevenspark

Hi abentivoglio,

ThemeForest just finished its review of all WordPress Themes and has increased prices across the board. Agility is considered a theme with “Advanced functionality” and has been priced at $45, which better reflects the value of the advanced feature set that Agility offers.

You can read more about the new pricing structure here

Sorry for the inconvenience; I don’t control or influence the prices, which Envato can change at any time (note that they very rarely decrease).

Best,

Chris

Any chance you’ll be adding an option to change the web fonts on the site? I’d like to have an option to use something less blocky without having to add the custom css, js, etc.

sevenspark

Hi strillogy,

That’s something I’ll certainly consider in the future, but isn’t currently a planned update.

The font styles are enqueued like any other stylesheet, so it’s pretty simple to dequeue them, enqueue other fonts, and then just update the font styles via a child theme. Basically a few lines of PHP in the functions.php and a few lines of CSS in the style.css should do it :)

If you have any questions, feel free to post them over in the support forum – http://support.sevenspark.com – thanks!

Best,

Chris

Hi Chris,

Can the lightbox for the blog images be disabled? or link directly to the post ? Thanks :)

sevenspark

Hi qbuzz,

Yes, as of Agility 1.1 you can disable lightboxes in the Control Panel under Images & Videos.

If you have further questions, please post them in the support forum – http://support.sevenspark.com – thanks! :)

Chris

Hi Chris,

While the theme & esp in-page videos behave well, any chance of introducing a fullscreen video/image background rotator ?

Or a Ken burns background like Pacifico or Crius theme ?

Thanks

sevenspark

Hi Xan,

At this point, a fullscreen video/image background slider isn’t planned for Agility, sorry. You may be able to use one of the background plugins on CodeCanyon to achieve that (hasn’t been tested with any, though).

Best,

Chris

Hi I’m having problem with cropping the portfolio item I’ve already checked the crop icon and its not working , and recreated the post and still having the same problem also I’m trying to keep the portfolio list item , square height and the width of each item in the portfolio , and also Can I use my own lightbox instead of the pretty photo?

Hi,

Does the portfolio have pagination as an option? Can the slider have captions?

sevenspark

Hi ck101,

Yes, when you build a portfolio, you can tell it how many posts (portfolio items) per page you want – if there are more matching portfolio items than your limit per page, they will automatically paginate :)

And yes, sliders can have captions (you can set a caption and/or title for each slide) – see the responsive slider demo for an example: http://agility.sevenspark.com/responsive-slider

Hope that helps!

Chris

Is it possible to add Responsive Video Embedding html5? by plugin or something like anyhing slideshow?

sevenspark

Hi mecaman,

Agility includes responsive video embedding (see http://agility.sevenspark.com/adventure/the-count-of-monte-cristo , http://agility.sevenspark.com/adventure/self-hosted-video ), but not in sliders. I am not sure about compatibility with other sliders, but I expect you could make it work if properly customized.

Best,

Chris
