Hello, I’m very interested in your beautiful theme. I’m wondering if I can easily keep the media preview that appears when you click on one of the items “on” all the time to display a preselected or latest work? Thanks!

2winFactor

Hi Sixfiftyblue,

Thanks so much for interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Yes, you can set the first project “open” by default on the homepage. That way when the user visits the site, the “media preview” will be visible by default.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Thanks for your quick reply Andre! I do have a few more questions! They all have to do with tweaking the theme somehow: - Can I easily change the background texture on the dark theme? - Can I easily make the sliding header bigger and have it open by default? - Can I easily change the size of the square preview items to something rectangular and larger (for video for example) and have 4 of them instead of 6? - Would you have a live preview of the dark theme, I only saw a picture?

Thanks so much, Andre!

2winFactor

Hi Sixfiftyblue,

1) Yep, you can easily change the background texture on the dark theme. There’s 5 preset textures and you can even upload your own.

2) You can make it open by default – that’s just an option in the Theme Options panel. However, if you want to make it bigger, you’d need to make some modifications to the theme.

3) Yep, you’d need to make a small modification to the functions file in the theme to change that thumbnail size to make them a rectangle.

4) There’s no live preview up currently, but if you have any questions about how things look on specific pages I’d be glad to provide some screenshots on my local install.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Hey there :) I purchased the theme lately and I love it.

There’s just one problem with the portfolio. When I’m trying to add a second/ third… slider, I just can’t. Clicking on “choose a Slide 2” the window with the pictures opens, I choose one, press the Select-Button, but the picture won’t show up. Neither in the backend-portfolio nor in frontend. I don’t know what to do . Is it a Javascript-bug? I already cleared the whole Browser-Cache, tried Firefox and Chrome (both the latest versions). Working with OS 10.8.2.

Any idea what to do?

Thanks! And merry Xmas ;)

Hi Kiofri,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

If you’ve updated to the latest version of the WordPress, then you’ll need to make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of the theme as well.

Hi Andre, first of all, Happy Christmas! I have a pre-sales question. I looked at all examples of implementations of the Aware-theme (at these comments pages) and I noticed a strange thing. At every single website (including your demo of aware), when arriving at the home page, or when clicking on links in the menu at the top, this happens: the content loads, and then the whole page drops about 30 pixels downward. I suppose it has something to do with the portfolio loading? Is there a solution for this? This is the only thing that might keep me from buying the theme.

Thanks in advance!

2winFactor

Hi Plockroy,

Thanks so much for interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

What do you do you mean by the whole page “drops about 30 pixels”? Are you talking about the page scrolling when you click on a portfolio item? I’ve never heard of this before. Any more information you can give me will help. Thanks!

Andre

Andre, I just bought the theme nonetheless. :) I have acces to your forum, but my “purchased” batch doesn’t show up here at the comments? (I bought it with this account by the way) EDIT: it shows now with this post. Not dynamic i guess… :)

Anyway, what I mean is not the portfolio scrolling. But what I meant was: after loading a page, in about half a second, you can see the “aware logo” drop down about 30 pixels. In fact the whole page drops down then. I made an animated gif to show you the two states: http://hpics.li/eac8fd0

This happens all really quickly. So it goes from an “too high positioned stage” to a normal stage. This is a bit irritating. I presume it is due to the fact that in that short period of time, in the background, fonts are being replaced, css is loaded, portfolio is loaded etc… And that the final positions still have to be calculated?

Is there a way around? For example, to FIRST position the top menu and the portfolio, THEN load the fonts etc…? Or am I seeing this whole thing wrong?

Thanks for your help, Plockroy

2winFactor

Hi Plockroy,

Those animations are just CSS3 animations that occur when the page loads. You can easily remove them by removing the animate.css file from the theme and everything will load in the final place.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Hi Andre,

I am very interested in purchasing your theme. Two features that would seal the deal:

1) Does the slider support tablet/phone swipe?

2) When filtering portfolio by keyword, is it possible to restack thumbnails and show only the photos that result from the filtering?

Thanks. Sam

2winFactor

Hi Sam,

Thanks so much for interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

1) There’s no swipe support in the slider, unfortunately.

2) Not at the moment – that type of alteration may come in a future update, but it’s not something that’s included with the theme currently.

Hello, i am kinda new to WP, and i was wondering if i can achieve some costumizations in this theme before i buy it (please bare in mind i am no pro at html or css, i only know the basics)

http://s9.postimage.org/3y6fixepr/aware_costum.png

This is what i want to achieve, my main concern is if i can show a map (i know it can be done with a plugin in the blog posts, but i dont know about portfolio items) and if i can add the share buttons exactly to that place. Then, when i click the read more, it would show me the image, it’s description and a map with the location and again the social share buttons.

Can it be bone with this theme? and can you help me achieve it? Thank you.

2winFactor

Hi Neon,

This can be done with the theme with a few minor alterations, however, you would need to edit some of the theme’s code. Removing the “Featured image” from the slideshow is just a matter of removing a few lines of code. The map should be pretty straightforward, too. Google Maps let’s you embed a map on your site with some basic code. However, getting it to appear after the “read more” is more complicated. Social sharing is a little more complicated too. You’d need to see if you can find a plugin that would extend that functionality to the theme.

Andre

  • Has been a member for 2-3 years

Hello Andre, thank you for the quick response, i have used both plugins, on google maps i use CodePeople Post Map and on social sharing i use Sociable, my problem is to place them exactly where i want.

Is it easy for you to help me with this costumization?

2winFactor

Hi NeonPT,

I’m happy to assist you with customization requests that require only a few lines of code. If however your modification is more complex, and requires more than just a few lines of code, I can only provide guidance to your question. Complex modifications will require you to implement the changes yourself or hire a 3rd party programmer to assist you. I’m also not able to provide support for 3rd party plugins, like sociable and CodePeople Post Map, so if you have any issues with those plugins you’d need to get support from those authors yourself.

Hi Nkomitsky,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

It looks like you’re just not installing your theme correctly. Be sure you’re unzipping the downloaded file from Themeforest first to your computer. Inside you should see a zip file called “aware.zip”. In your wordpress admin panel, navigate to Appearance > Themes. Then click the “Install Themes” tab at the top, then click upload. Find the file “aware.zip” within the extracted Themeforest download. Can you verify that you are installing the theme this way?

Here’s a video tutorial for how to install your theme: http://themewich.com/how-to-install-your-theme/

Hi Andre,

Firstly, I really like the theme. I’ve spent many hours sifting through Wordpress folio styles and this meets all my requirements. I just have a couple of questions regarding customisation.

Is it easy to alter the height of the drop-down buttons on the menu. In the demo the height for 1 line of text i.e. Branding is 50px. Can I change this to 40px in height?

Can i easily remove the top dropdown that displays the copyright details and social media icons? I’d like to be able to feature this information in the footer if that’s possible? I assume i can add my own customised icons too?

Thanks in advance, and happy new year mate.

Dan

2winFactor

Hi Dan,

Thanks so much for interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

1) You can alter the drop down links with a little bit of custom css in the Theme Options panel. I’d be happy to help you with any small tweaks you’d want to make.

2) Yep, you can turn off the top dropdown bar in the Theme Options. You can add this information into a footer widget area using a text widget. The icons are just images wrapped in links, there’s no specific widget for the social icon since their relatively easy to add to a text box.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Awesome, cheers Andre for the swift reply!

I have a couple more questions about the theme; - what are the 5 available widgets? - is there a way to make the pages more static when loading? On the demo the content drifts into place each time a new page is accessed. - I love that when viewing the portfolio page the browser automatically adjusts to frame the project. Can I a) run images down the page instead of within a slide show? And can I b) easily turn off the fancy (up then down) transition that happens when skipping between projects?

Looking forward to hearing you thoughts on this.

Dan

2winFactor

Hi Dan,

1) There’s a twitter widget, a quick contact form widget, latest projects widget, custom news widget and a featured project widget.

2) Yep, those are just css3 transitions. Just remove the animate.css file from your theme and it will load without those animations.

3) a) Yep, if you comment out the slideshow javascript in the theme, the projects will just show all the photos vertically.

b) This would be a more advanced customization – you’d need to change the javascript in the theme. It’s a more advanced customization. I’d be happy to point you in the right direction, however, you’d need to seek the help of a developer for something like that.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Dear Andre, we have spoken beofre some months ago, before I bought your template. Now I have my webpage almost ready, but having difficulty in some items which I would like to get your help, please help me out with them: 1. How can I add a video to one of the works I have in portafolio…..my idea is to have some pictures, and then when you get to the last one, the plan would be to be able to view a video….is this possible? how? when I add it, it occults the pictures and only shows the video.

2. For every project I have in my portafolio, I was thinking of having an animated gif as the first image. But this only works once I have clicked in the project and Im in it….but not when shown as a thumbnail in the portafolio section…please let me know how can I get to do this.

3. When I look at my web (www.flacomen.com) in firefox, I get these weird thin lines that seem to want to get all projects in “portafolio” in a grid…how can I get rid of this? on other browsers, everything is fine.

Thanks very much. I await for your answers, almost finished with the web ….finally!

Dear Andre, first let me add my voice to those congratulating you on a fantastic theme.

I’m on the cusp of buying, however I’d like to have a large number of panels for each category without having to display them all on the homepage. How easy would it be to add a paginate function, such as that displayed in this theme?: http://themeforest.net/item/aboard-responsive-premium-portfolio-theme/full_screen_preview/3614657

I also like how the panels evaporate depending on the selected category in the above theme – is that something that could be incorporated into yours?

Many thanks!

2winFactor

Hi Mandarke,

Thanks! I’m glad you like it! :)

You could add pagination to the homepage if you’d like. You’d just need to change some things in the homepage loop to add pagination. Not super, difficult, but you’d need to modify some theme files to get that to work.

For the “evaporate” effect, that’s not something that’s part of the theme at the moment, but may come in a future update.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Oh, one other thing…is it possible to have both blog posts and pages feature as panels on the front page?

2winFactor

Hi Mandarke,

Only portfolio items are featured on the homepage by default. However, you may be able to add blog posts and pages as well – you’d just need to combine loops to get them. Something like this:

query_posts( array( 'post_type' => array( 'posts', 'pages', 'portfolio')));

I haven’t tested this, but it’s based on this:

Hi Mattsilvan,

It’s possible, however, it isn’t a feature that’s included in the theme. That would be a more advanced customization that would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. You’d need to seek the help of a developer for and alteration such as that.

Hello (i am french :))) Your theme is in my top 3 lists like please answer these questions to help me make my final choice. It is a website and blog about kitchen a chef with lots of videos can be as mp3. The search engine is essential cuisine. I like minimalist design. Yours is just gorgeous! Q1: When I browse your site for example I see that is not Seo optimized titles do not stand out is it possible to change this? This is very important especially for the kitchen … Q2: is there a possibility to make a page or category with recipes sorted by themes ….? Q3 is there a widget tags? Q4 can be shared on Facebook? Add social media? Q5: Can you add a page prices and services? Q6 we can add a slider? Q7 you can add content MP3 sorry for all this questions but it is my first wp…and not the last!!! Have a nice night… Agnès

2winFactor

Hi Agnès,

Thanks for your interest! I’d be glad to answer any questions you may have.

1. Most people end up using an SEO plugin to help optimize both WordPress and their theme. There is some basic SEO in this Theme (heading structure, optimized coding, image alt tags, etc.). However, you’ll need to use an SEO plugin to add meta titles and descriptions.

2. I’m not sure what you mean by “category sorted by themes”. Could you be more specific? Thanks!

3. Yes, there’s a tags widget. That’s just default WordPress functionality. Here’s a screenshot of the tag cloud widget:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/32356665/tags.png

4. There’s not built-in social sharing, however, you can add social sharing via a plugin if you like. Any page can be shared on facebook.

5. That’s not something that’s included with the theme. You’d need to add something like that yourself via shortcodes and/or other styling.

6. There’s no slider “shortcode” or anything, but it’s easy enough to add a simple image slider using a couple lines of html. I’d be happy to help you add one to a page or post if you’d like.

7. There’s not audio format supported, unfortunately.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

dear André

I’m back with my specific questions … 1 is it possible to have sub-category in the blog category ex recipes (sub categories: input-dishes-desserts …) 2 on your home is it possible in the latest news with images to have videos that can be viewed directly. (The videos are integrated into the home, it is more dynamic …) you can change the size of picture portfolio? have you an example of a home page a little different to show me? 3 still on the home can you customize it by adding a promo ex promo the last book of the chef with a purchase button? 4 in the portfolio i dont see the vidéos! is it possible to post videos with the play button the portfolio are unlimited ?number of pages and pictures? Can we have a portfolio in page? 5 The bar above is copyright customizable? 6They are only TAG cloud, or is it possible with a plugin to frame words with the same format? (if there is no sub-categories for the blog, then I would use this trick …)

7 what additions or changes to the next version 8 how can I see sites that use your theme? Oh my god perhaps too many questions…

Sorry ... but I do not want to be wrong … but I love the design, and it is difficult for me to imagine working with another theme…

THANKS

The french girl lost!!!

2winFactor

Hi Agnes,

1. Yes, categories can have sub-categories. You can arrange them in your menu however you like.

2. What do you mean by “videos viewed directly”? I’m not sure I understand the question. Changing the size of the pictures in the portfolio is possible, however, you’d need to make a couple small changes to the homepage template and thumbnail size. I’d be happy to talk you through it, but you’d need to edit some theme files to get that to work.

3. Do you mean you want to add some additional content to the homepage? Like a button and an image? You can just add that to the content area of your homepage and it will show up between the homepage image grid and the recent posts.

4. There are videos in the “projects” section here: http://themewich.com/aware/?page_id=139&paged=3

Is that what you’re talking about? You can have an unlimited amount of portfolio items. Portfolio items are like posts, so you can’t really put one on a page, other than in a widget area or adding page content to link to your portfolio post.

5. Yep, the top bar is just a page. Anything you can put in a page (columns, shortcodes, etc) you can put in the top bar.

6. I’m not sure I understand your question, could you please clarify what you mean by “frame words in with the same format”? Thanks!

7. I’m still putting together a final list for the next update to the theme, so nothing is set in stone yet.

8. I don’t have any live examples of the theme at the moment. I’d need to ask permission from some people first.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Friendly Agnès

2winFactor

Hi Agnes,

1, 2, 3, 4 : I haven’t tested any of these specific plugin with the theme, so I can’t give you an iron-clad guarantee. The theme is coded in jQuery, no-conflict mode to minimize conflicts with other plugins, however, I can’t be absolutely sure with those plugins.

5. WPML doesn’t seem to work well with the theme, due to the fact that it uses virtual directories. Because of this, it “hi-jacks” the home_url of the theme and causes the ajax to break.

6. You can add any content to a page, I’m not sure specifically what you had in mind for a faq. Do you have an example?

7. There are a multitude of social sharing plugins. That’s really more of a question for the plugin your using. However, there are literally thousands of social plugins for wordpress, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs.

8. Yes, you can change that if you want. You’ll just need to make a small modification to the theme and just change that title to wp_title() and wordpress will automatically use the specific skill.

Hi Andre! Great theme! So beautiful and thought out and user friendly…and I’m stunned! I’m definitely getting it for the project I’m currently researching or to use in future if this doesn’t work out.. I’m looking to make a multilingual portfolio, and was wondering whether there is a specific plugin you know that works well with the Aware theme. I’m considering The WordPress Multilingual Plugin..What do you think?

Thanks! Andromachi

2winFactor

Hi Andromachi,

I’ve heard there are issues with WPML with any site that uses ajax. The issue is that the domains are slightly different (even if they’re virtual domains) and browsers won’t load ajax from a different url than the one the user is currently viewing (even if only slightly different). I’m afraid I don’t quite know what a good solution is. Of course, multisite WP would work, too, but that would involve a bit more work than a plugin. I’ll keep researching and see what I can find.

Hello again, I contacted the WPML team with your comment and this is their reply:

“What you’re describing sounds like a bug and not like a planned feature. Generally speaking, we make sure that all bugs are handled quickly. We also work closely with theme developers, to check and resolve compatibility issues. If you want to make sure that WPML and your theme work well together, I suggest that you ask the theme developer to contact us and test things. You can refer the theme developer to this page: http://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/go-global-program/

Please let me know if you contact them and what the outcome is so I can get started, as I am really eager!!!

Thanks again, Andromachi

2winFactor

Hi Andromachi,

The issue is that the WPML plugin uses virtual directories> http://wpml.org/faq-tags/setup/

What this means is that it “hijacks” the WordPress home_url() function (the function that gets the home url). When this changes, the ajax breaks since it can no longer find the ajax file. I’m currently trying to integrate a workaround, hopefully I should have a solution soon.

I appreciate your patience!

There’s no way to do this out of the box. This is a more advanced customization that would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. However, I can point you in the right direction. Unless you want to hard-code the categories right in there, you’d need to edit the widget to get an additional category dropdown, then add that to the loop in the widget as well.

Alternatively, you can duplicate the widget-news.php file, rename it to widget-news-custom.php, and add this to your functions file:

include("functions/widget-news-custom.php");

Then change the loop in widget-news-custom.php from this:

<?php $the_query = new WP_Query('cat='.$category.'&showposts='.$postnum);

to this:

<?php $the_query = new WP_Query('cat=5,6&showposts='.$postnum);

Where 5 and 6 are you category IDs. Finally, you’ll need to change every instance of ‘ag_news_widgets’ and ‘AG_News_Widget’ to something else.

Please let me know if I can help you get on the Support forum. It’s really the most efficient way to get help with the theme.

Hi Howeveriam,

You’ll need to contact Themeforest Support for issues with purchases. As an author I have no control over the purchase process through Themeforest. I think this might be an issue with Envato site-wide. Check out this post:
