Hi,

I am very interested in this theme but I just have a few questions.

1. It says in the description there is a video option for the portfolio, can you add one of these to the example site so I can see it in action?

2. Is it possible to add a video to the home page in place of the slider?

3. It’s not a big problem, but its a little strange how you can only click the “more” button on the blog, and not click the title of the post to view it too. I was just wondering if you were planning to change this?

Hi Josh, At the moment only embedded videos are supported in the blog and portfolio but not in the home slider, you can see an example here: http://giordanopiazza.com/themes/andante_wp/portfolio/titles-for-mad-in-spain/

The “not linked title” is actually a design decision to bring more focus to the thumbnail, especially for the portfolio where you can choose for each item if the thumb will zoom or link to the article. However I’m open to suggestions and could change that. :)

Thank you

Nice style , looks great ; good luck with sales :)

no sub footer?

For copyright info etc. you could use a text widget as the last column of the footer, not necessarily below it.

Great looking theme!

I wonder why the images in portfolio pages are not resizing according to the screen? Images under “His fingerprints” are resizing, while the image under “Boise North End” does not adjust its size.

Thanks this is what I was looking for! I’m a total newbie with Wordpress but your theme is really easy to use.

Finally someone thinking about us newbies :)

Good lucky417

Gyo, is there a way to have the portfolio slider viewable full-screen on mobile devices? Or will it require any additional plugins (i thought about PhotoSwipe)?

Selektor

Thanks, Gyo! I assume it’s easy to set custom dimensions for the slider, or does it adjust its size according to the images?

gyo

No problem! You can use images of any size and they’ll automatically fit in the slider.

Selektor

I was wondering if the slider adjusted its size according to the image (become larger/smaller), instead of having the image fit into the slider’s size. The slider is a bit too small on mobile screens, and it’s kinda beats the purpose of having the image if it can be viewed only at the current size of the slider.

Thanks!

Strangely I can’t get the Images for Featured Projects on the home page and the images on the portfolio page working. Don’t know exactly why.

Hi bf6667, Make sure the “Featured Projects” are enabled in Theme Options > Home Settings. Then just edit or create a portfolio item, on the right side there is a box titled “Featured Project” where you can decide to show it in the homepage and/or in the sidebar.

Please let me know if you have any other doubts.

Thank you!

Hi Gyo, This is the only responsive theme I found where the logo is so sharp! Great thanks! :)

Thank you Ace86! I can’t believe how many “responsive” themes don’t care about retina displays (iPhone4, iPad3…). The logo is the most important part of your website and with this theme it will be ultra-sharp. There are no excuses for it to be blurry! :)

Really nice theme. I just one question. The 4 icons/text blocks on the home page, are they widgets? Or to modify them do we have to manually edit the theme?

gyo

Hi hchouhan, At the moment they are handled in the theme options, but I could quickly add a widget area if you’re interested. Thank you

Thanks for the prompt reply Gyo. let me be honest. I am making a free & Premium theme myself and have currently made a base using http://www.gumbyframework.com & Options Framework for Theme Options and also some parts of Hybrid Core.

I have bought few themes earlier and now buying few to learn the best way to make usable shortcodes and keep things organized to avoid locking in a user to my theme.

Would it be ok to you, if I decide to later buy your theme to learn best way to implement shortcodes?

If its ok can you also let me know if you have a visual editor to allow changing attributes of a shortcode?

gyo
gyo Author

This is an interesting topic, Andante comes with my own framework (which will be released asap) and it includes a visual editor for adding shortcodes (but not yet for modifying the already added ones).

The framework itself is not documented but well commented, and I can give some support if you have doubts.

Cheers

Gyo.. once again great theme! Question in the Flexslider… it looks like you customized this. Maybe I’m missing something.. a hem… again. lol. But is there a way to add links to specific pages to the Flexslider through the CMS ? Thanks!

gyo
gyo Author

:) only the buttons/icons (like the arrows) have been customized in Flexslider. Each slide can have its own link, so you can copy the pages links and paste them in the slides. Let me know!

Hi Gyo… thanks for the response. Strangely when I add links in the “URL” form field for the slider it doesn’t add the link to the slider for the specific slide.

Hey!

The theme looks really great, we’re really happy with it! We’re having some problems with mobile CSS stuff, like the “Andante” logo showing up under our own, but this problem only happens on mobile phones. When the screen is shrunk on a brower, everything looks fine. You can see the problem at “citrus-works.com/wp” when viewed on a mobile browser (we tested it on iPhones). What CSS does the template give when viewed on an iPhone?

Hi shizzcrizz707, Thanks! It looks like you haven’t changed the logo for retina displays. Check in Theme Options > General Settings, you need two provide 2 logos: one for the standard monitors and one for retina displays which is double sized. Keep me updated ;)

i am very new to web. i am using a free wordpress template, but i love this one. how would i edit this? can i use it with the www.yourstressisgone.com/wp-admin site? can we add follow me on twitter button for example easily? can we add all the wordpress widgets that are available currently? sorry if these seem silly questions…lol…just don’t want to buy something that i will not be able to edit for myself.

No problem yourstressisgone :) You should be able to add any widgets/plugins just like you’ve done on your current theme and I can support you for any issues.

I am considering buying this nice theme. Is it possible to remove the sidebar on the blog?

gyo
gyo Author

Hi sinclair, at the moment it’s not possible to remove the sidebar for the blog. Thanks!

If we have less height/contents in footer widgets then the page scroll stuck. It doesn’t allow to maximum scroll down to the bottom.

Can you help asap?

Thanks in advance!

Hi brandchamp, it might be the Wordpress admin bar, does it also happen when logged out? Let me know

Ok. We logged out now.

When we click on home link or logo on the top the footer doesn’t appear but have long scroll bar in broswer when we try to go down/page scroll then this long scroll goes out and footer appears and adjusts in browsers window. Can you pls check?

Nice theme, we are in love with it.

But, can we have fade in transition effect with top dropdown menu as well?

Thank you!

gyo

Can you please send me a link to that page so I can understand better? About the menu, you can use the ‘Custom CSS ’ and ‘Custom Javascript’ fields in Theme Options > Custom Code. And, thank you. :)

Can you show featured projects on portfolio details pages?

underneath this detailed page? http://giordanopiazza.com/themes/andante_wp/portfolio/speedometer/

Pls reply!

You can’t automatically add featured projects but you can manually type any content you wish in the editor panel. All that content will be placed below the images or slider if any. Cheers!
