hi. how do i add .html extension to portfolio?

Pirenko

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! I suggest you Google for “wordpress add .html extension to pages”.
Cheers :)

Pirenko,

I hope this message finds you well. Great theme! I’m following up on our Skype conversation from a few moments ago. I’m probably going to have quite a lot of questions during the next couple of weeks, as I build our new website.

Temporary Website: http://www.bookmark.agency/BOOKMARKENT

1. How do I set up the Homepage to be a clean, video-only page?

2. Why can I not see the black “loading line & wheel” at the top of the page, the same way you have it on: http://www.pirenko.com/astro/

3. How do I customise the menu so it appears the same way you have it on: http://www.pirenko.com/astro/ – hence, having the actual buttons at the top (with arrows) and the address/social media links at the bottom?

That’s to begin with. Thanks!

Jonathan

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! Here are my comments:
1 – Homepage is set under Settings>Reading;
2 – Probably you are logged in and the admin bar is visible (the loader is behind the bar);
3 – Please check this tutorial I wrote some time ago: http://www.pirenko.com/blog/2014/07/24/mastering-wordpress-menus/
Cheers :)

Is it possible to leave the item image of the carousel open when you open the page, right now all items are closed and you need to put the mouse over, and also is it possible to disable scroll on mouse on carousel.

Thanks

Pirenko

Hi,
You are trying to change the theme so it is up to you to make it work. I never tested that function so I can’t tell you a quick fix.
Cheers!

Default-user

ok, just wanted to know.

Pirenko

No problem, thanks :)

Hi. How do I move the portfolio carousel navigation bullets? I want to shift them downward.

Pirenko

Hi, you can try and add some custom CSS for that. Send me a private message if you need help. Cheers!

Is there a limit to the number of slides you can have on the homepage? On the demo, there are 10. We’d be looking at 16-20. Is this possible? If so, can we have four pages of four slides rather than the two pages of five slides like the demo?

Pirenko

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! On the portfolio page under the content you have the option to choose the number of panels that are displayed each time. You also have a filter under that will allow you to show only certain portfolio posts. These 2 options should be flexible enough for you to manage your content.
If you are looking for a specific setup please send me a private message with a link so that I can understand it.
Cheers :)

Hi Pirenko !

I try to use “Image Watermark” plugin and it doesn’t work. I can install and set it but no watermark appears.

Any idea if perhaps the problem is linked with the theme ?

thank you

Laurent

Pirenko

Hi, I don’t see any reason for that, but I don’t know anything about the plugin. The theme generates image on the fly and maybe that is why. Thanks!

LaurentDubin

Hi ! the generation “on the fly” is perhaps the clue. In fact the plugin ask me not to watermark the full images but all other size, in order to “save” the integrity of the full picture. In that case, do you know a compatible plugin which put a watermark and/or disable the right click on the image ? Other question : is because of the “on the fly” technic that the theme is “slower” than others to show the images folk screen, even with a quick internet ? Or is it more a server question ?

thank you !

Pirenko

Hi,
There are a lot of plugins that disable the right click so maybe it is a good solution. As for slowing down the website: should not affect speed, because the images are only generated once and it is done on the server side with PHP (fast execution).
Cheers :)

Hi Pirenko !

New question !

As someone choose the full screen mode, there is a window explaining how to deal the the fullscreen mode.

I would like to have it at the first contact of my website. I know web is not really used to force the fullscreen mode but I think that proposing it at the first access is really good for the viewing experience (I choose your theme quite because of this feature !).

could you help me doing this ?

thank you

Laurent

Pirenko

Hi,
To go fullscreen users need to click somewhere and that explaining info window can’t be customized. What you can do is create a special page type that shows an “enter and go fullscreen button” and make this page be your homepage.
You need to know about coding to achieve this. Send me a private message if you need help with the jQuery function that the theme uses to go fullscreen. Cheers!

Hi, I bought your theme and I think it’s great! I just have one problem (the same problem the user on_roth had) with the “to portfolio” button not returning me to the portfolio page. I’m just stuck at the same post. How can i fix this, or alternatively, remove the button entirely?

Pirenko

Hi, this should be working fine as long as you assign a skill to each portfolio post. This skill must match the portfolio page filter option located under the page content. Cheers!

Hi Pirenko, congratulation for the Theme, it´s really evident the high quality of the product.

I have a question about image size, I searched through the comments but I didn´t find my answer yet.

I have pictures of different proportions, cause I often cut the photoes. I uploaded them in different sizes but I always got the same result. I´m talking about the full-screen portfolio I tried as well to create a new picture with a different proportion and insert my pictures inside but the result was the same.

How does the full screen work? For me it would be ok also to have white borders on the sides or above and under.

Best regards, Emilio

Pirenko

If you don’t select the option to don’t crop images they will be scaled to fill the screen. As for the standard picture ratio: there’s no such thing and you can use the images with whatever ratio you want to.
Thanks!

Hi Pirenko, sorry for the confusion, it’s my first time with Wordpress, however now it’s going great! just a further question, in the project description I’m using the project link as a further indication for the next portfolio, just to make the contents clearer. Is it possible Not to open the project link in a new tab? how?

Pirenko

Hi,
I think it would be easier if you add this link to the project content. Anyway, if you want to do it using the project link you need to edit the single-pirenko_portfolios.php file.
Cheers!

Hi Pirenko, I have bought two of your themes: Astro and Gusto. I have 2 question for you.

ASTRO: I have a problem… I’ve 6 article categories, 1 is called xxx-public and the other 5 are called yyy-private. I’ve created a 5 blog page covered by passwor in wich I show just one yyy-private category of article and the xxx-public category each. And also I have created a public blog page thet shows just the xxx-public category. It works ok of couurse who as the password for one of those private page doesn’t have tho other four pages. The problem is that if the user is in the private page and read an article when select “back to articles” (in the lower right corner) he goes to the public blog page instead to return in the same private page as prior. It is really annoying because he has to navigate again to his private page to continue reading his privare articles. How can we fix it?

Other question (but not trouble)...

GUSTO: I have created a website and chosen to use accordian slideshow in the home page that works ok, but if I visit the same site whit mobile phone (android or ios doesn’t matter) the slideshow is not visible. I sow from your examples thet there is one version of the 5 you shows that mantain the slideshow also in mobile version. How cha I achieve this?

Many, may thanks.

Pirenko

Hi,
Here are my comments:
Astro: the parent blog page link is calculated according to the blog post categories. So, as long as you have separate/independent categories for the blog posts they will point to the “correct” parent blog page.
Gusto: please place all the questions related with that theme on the respective comments section.
Ciao :)

Default-user

Astro: it doesn’t work as you wrote, I tryed to make chenges to the structure of my caregories, but I have ever the same problem. I have separate/indipendent categories, but for a strange reason the link point always to an other category on an other page.

Pirenko

In that case please turn OFF all the plugins that are not included with the theme and try again. If you still have trouble send me a private message with the WP login details so that I can analyze this situation.
Cheers :)

Thanks in advance.

Pirenko

Hi,
Thank you for purchasing! Please send me a link to that portfolio page. Please notice that if you are using lightbox and you want to have separate projects you need to select the option “Lightbox shows image(s) from each portfolio entry individually” located under that page content.
Cheers!

Hi Master,

I have bought this template and I need help as below.

How do we set our own text and replace the text that we see in the carousel/main banner.

I am referring to the text like oldfriends/unexpected/velvet like/Another Time/Beach Boys

This appears on each silo vertically aligned in the main screen. I want to change this to my own text. What are the steps to do this?

Best Regards, Arun

Pirenko

Hi,
Please explore the options panel located under the portfolio page content. You can control how many posts are loaded, panels are shown and also filter what portfolio skills/categories are shown on that page.
Cheers!

Hi Master, My earlier question has not been answered. How do we set our own text and replace the text that we see in the carousel/main banner.I am referring to the text like oldfriends/unexpected/velvet like/Another Time/Beach Boys This appears on each silo vertically aligned in the main screen. I want to change this to my own text. What are the steps to do this?

NOTE: Master, I am referring to the black background vertically aligned text around each condensed banner item(oldfriends/unexpected/velvet like/Another Time/Beach Boys) at the bottom of each small image of the slider/portfolio. I wish I could attach a screenshot. I hope you got it.

Pirenko

Hi,
Once again that text is the Portfolio Item title. You can edit it like you edit any other post title. Cheers!

Hey, Guys! One question: can the project sidebar (the one that slides in with the “i”) have a small image (about 300 px wide?)?

Thanks!!!

RobertoRiosO

I mean in the single fullscreen portfolio view.

Pirenko

Hi,
Thank you for reaching me! Yes, that is possible. I will send you a single line of CSS code if you need help with it. You can add it directly to the theme options.
Cheers!

I love the fullscreen slider… however, can the background color for the text be removed?—> http://www.pirenko.com/astro/fullscreen-slider/

Thanks!!

Pirenko

Hi,
Yes, the opacity can be set to zero with the theme options.
Thanks :)
