Nice theme! Will there be a WP version?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

There will be, we’re currently back and forth with the reviewers over a few things so no promises on time currently :)

Hi,

any Updates about the wordpress version of this great theme? :-)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m afraid that due to having mountains of deadlines at the moment, Anchor WP is currently delayed, it will definitely happen at some point soon, but I don’t have an official date yet!

Cheers & thanks for the interest :)

hello, URGENT HELP if possible, I love this theme & I recently launched my portfolio site using it, but I am now having some issues that I’d love any assistance on.

Here is the link—http://gabrielleshirdan.com & I basically set up the whole site on the “team page” & removed everything else. I love the way it functions & looks (thank you!), but I cannot get it to load a few computers (PCs …. the user needs to zoom out 50% to see it and a good majority of the content (BG images) don’t show. It looks and works great on most Macs that I have tested.

Also, it is imperative that this works on mobile for me & the iPad. currently, it doesn’t fit unless you turn the phone sideways, and still a lot of the content doesn’t load even with a great connection. On the Ipad, it’s even worse. it often crashes the ipad and then if it does show up, only one or two of my bgs “pages” show?? do i need to create a separate mobile site at this point?

Is there anything I can do to resolve these issues? I’d love to get this fixed today. I appreciate it!

Thank you, Gabrielle

Hey there,

The issues you’re having with mobile devices are due to the amount of huge images you’re loading in just one request, you site currently has a MASSIVE payload which is likely too much for mobile devices / mobile browsers to cope with.

You’ll want to try split this content across a few pages.

As for the BG images, I’m assuming the PC’s have slightly smaller screens? The curtain script with background images aggressively fits them to screen sizes, this can result in image cropping both vertically and horizontally.

I hope this helps.

Cheers

This helps! I cannot thank you enough for that super quick response! I’m thinking i will just break up the “projects” across pages with maybe “next” buttons to navigate at the bottom of each.

I forgot to mention, that even if I could get the site to load properly on mobile devices (ipad, iphone) – the curtains scrolling aspect that I love doesn’t work – is there anyway I can maintain that effect after I reduce the size of my pages? The navigation buttons now currently go away on mobile.

As for the PC’s, most screens are smaller so is there no help there? other than just hoping that no one looks at it from a pc?

Thanks again! I love it!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. On mobiles the curtain effect is disabled, this is to save some processing power for these devices and try and avoid further the issue you were having in your first post, this is part of curtain.js and would require direct javascript modification to change;

https://github.com/victa/curtain.js

2. The navigation buttons are disabled on mobile devices to provide a nicer touch screen experience, as those buttons hide some screen estate, and are also a bit fiddly for fingers, whereas touch devices can just swipe and it’s lovely :)

3. PC’s – I guess what I said was actually a really badly phrased question! On the PC’s you checked, was the monitor size smaller than that of the Macs you used? If not, what browsers on a PC were you not happy with the display on?

What I was getting at was that the images are displayed as cover sized background images, so your browser will aim to cover every pixel on the screen, on some browsers this is handled differently to others but you should definitely expect image cropping in whatever browser.

Cheers

You’re right! I think I will keep the curtains disabled, I just used a black overlay (lighter opacity) on top of the 2nd “page” so I loved the effect/unveiling there. If I did want to enable the curtains, can you let me know how I would do that? I will now only have about 5 photos max on each “page” after I break up my current load.

For the PC, i don’t know exactly what the size was (someone just told me) but said that they had to “zoom out” 50% to see the full images. I am ok with that for now, I just want to resolve the other issues – i just assume those reviewing my portfolio site are other creatives on Macs – fingers crossed!!

Thanks again for your help. You are saving my life :)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I mentioned in my last reply, but it was lost somewhat in my wall of text, the curtain effect disabling is part of curtain.js – the plugin I use to create the curtain effect. It’s github page is here;

https://github.com/victa/curtain.js

Enabling the curtains on mobile devices would require direct modification of this plugin file (included in the /js/ folder of your site) but this modification obviously falls outside of the scope of my support I’m afraid.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks so much. If I work my way through the curain.js file and find that I am having trouble, enabling it for mobile, are you available for pay? I went over to github and it says “plugin is no longer maintained” & I don’t see much instruction on how to enable it for mobile. It really isn’t a make or break, but I would love the option. Thanks again!! You’ve been a tremendous help & I’ll always support your future releases.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Well thank you so much :)

I don’t currently handle customisation directly, but instead I’ve partnered up with Tweaky, who are a leading customisations team;

https://www.tweaky.com/?invite=d525c15551606af5

I’m happy with the work they produce for me, and their prices are usually reasonable :)

Thanks for the answer on your Support Forum. It worked like magic. An other question: To update a theme, what files should be replaced? js? and that’s it? Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

HTML templates are quite difficult to update as users tend to customise the code for themselves, but apart from the change I showed you on the support service, there’s been very little updating, so you’ll be fine without :)

Hi there,

We would really like to buy this in WP format.

Any idea on the timeline for this as it was in the works a month ago.

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Been working on this a while but going to working with the new WP requirements for theme forest on it now.

Sadly no confirmed date for WP as of yet.

How can I put sub items for my menu? Example: Home > Page 1 > Page 1.1

So when user mouse over item show other item and when he moves over this item appears other item.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The menu is just a standard nested ul list, you can see the menu set up with drop down elements in the main files for Anchor.

How can I change the “anchor”§ in the background of the pages

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Do you mean in the background of the preloader screen? Or the anchor in the background of the homepage.

Cheers!

I am interested in this quality site, really nice work. On the home page, I want the site to curtain for the first slide (home), then scroll normal from there on. Is this something that is possible?

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Yep :)

You might be interested in reading up on / experimenting with the curtain plugin first;

Hey Tommy,

Great theme here really easy to use….That being said, I would like to alter the animation of the anchor dropping on the first section from down to go up (I’ve swapped out to a different icon) just wondering where the code live to do this, i’m guessing it’s in the custom.js file but which variables should be changed?

Thanks Nick

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The intro animation is the last section of custom.js

You’ll want to modify the following section, specifically try changing the animate->top to animate->bottom, but of course there may be more tweaks to make;

$('.home .cover i').delay( (count * delay) + (delay * 2) ).animate({ 'top' : $('.cover i').offset().top - 180 }, 500, 'easeOutBounce', function(){
                //$('.cover h3').fadeIn(500);
            });

Cheers

Hey! The theme looks great. Planning on getting it. Just have one quick question. Is it possible to replace the background image on the homescreen with slideshow or video?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You’d need to develop the theme further to allow this if you wanted to do it, I guess in theory it would be possible, but not currently part of the template :)

Hi there,

how do I link (e.g. from the top nav) to a curtain on the same or another page?

Cheers!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

It’s possible to link via section ID, e.g:

http://www.your-site.com/#section-4

Hi, is this built upon any framework (ie bootstrap)? And secondly, is this ready for sub-theme development on the Drupal platform? Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Nope, custom framework in this one.

You might be interested in the existing Drupal version: http://themeforest.net/item/anchor-animated-parallax-drupal-theme/5294218
