Hi, Beautiful theme. Pre-purchase question. Is there a way to add more captions to the slider? And can the captions fade in and out?

2winFactor

Hi Iammayal,

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

Not out of the box. You’d need to make some modifications to the theme to get that to work. Those type of alterations would go beyond the scope of support for the theme, however.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Hello, is it possible to use this template without wordpress?

2winFactor

Hi Luisgasser,

There’s only a WordPress version of this template. Unfortunately, there’s no HTML version.

Hello, I need theme with fullscreen video, autostart. Your demo doesn’t show video playing fullscreen, only link to vimeo. Any ideas?

Hi Origamica,

Have you seen the fullscreen video homepage?

Hi,

Is it possible to define a static background for each page ?

Does the homepage can display a fullscreen slideshow with captions ?

Thank you :)

2winFactor

Hi YonaTanm,

Yep! You can set a background image for each page. Just add a “Featured Image” to your page and it will show up as a full screen background image on that page

I’m confused by your second question. Could you please clarify it a bit? The homepage on the demo has a fullscreen slideshow with captions. Did you see the homepage of the demo?

Andre

yonatanm

Thanks,

Is it possible to check the admin (even with screenshots) ? Do you plan to add a music player ?

Thank you :)

2winFactor

Hi Yonatanm,

Screenshots of the admin are located in the “screenshots” button (next to the live preview).

http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/2632480-bigformat-responsive-fullscreen-wordpress-theme?url_name=bigformat-responsive-fullscreen-wordpress-theme

No plans currently to add a music player, but WordPress 3.6 supports embedded mp3s out of the box (in page or post content area).

If there are any other admin screens you want to see or have any other questions, just let me know.

Andre

yonatanm

Is it also possible to set a slider for each page instead of a static image ?

Thank you :)

2winFactor

Hi Yonatanm,

You’d need to make some modifications to the theme to extend this functionality. This type of customization would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. You’d need to implement these changes yourself of seek the help of a 3rd-party programmer to assist you with something like this.

Hi there,

that’s a nice theme!

Before purchasing I would need to verify that some things can be realized easily:

Is it possible to have a home page with…

- full screen video background AND - dot grid overlay (like over many full screen video backgrounds in other templates, and your full screen image backgrounds) - having a (Vimeo or YouTube or other) play button in the middle of the background video (not the one in the lower left corner, or one in addition to the one in the corner), waiting to be clicked, no autostart - video can be stopped on click in the background video - and maybe have the usual Vimeo / YouTube controls on mouse over? - and have these controls in portfolio video full screen items also? - but have the portfolio videos start automatically? It would make more sense to me to have the homepage video start on click (I don’t like websites going crazy with sound in some random tab I opened) but have the portfolio videos start automatically (since I actively chose to see this item)

Other questions: - is it possible to have direct links to portfolio items, so you can point a client to a specific portfolio item? The preview site URL doesn’t change at all when navigating through the site…

Thanks!

All of these questions would involve some modifications to the theme. These types of customizations would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. You’d need to implement these changes yourself of seek the help of a 3rd-party programmer to assist you with something like this. With the exception of:

-Having the portfoli videos start automatically ( you just need to make a small change the the theme’s code)

-There are already direct links to the portfolio items. You’ll need to remove the top frame by clicking the “x” in the upper corner and you should see the urls.

i have a question before i purchase the theme. can the project page images ‘fit’?

for ex. http://ianstallings.com/hayes-valley-residence/

i’m just very peculiar about cropping my photos. i absolutely want zero crops.

let me know, ok?

2winFactor

Hi WolverineJoe,

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

You can select your images to “fit always” – meaning they will never get cropped. Instead, you’ll see black margins on either the top of the bottoms of the images.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Default-user

and i can remove the black margins with css right? it must fit the browser screen like the example i posted above… i recently purchased a theme called wowway and i didn’t know how to tweak their javascript to make image fit the browser and they wouldn’t support on this issue…

2winFactor

Hi WolverineJoe,

Sure, I would just change the background color from black to white. Then the margins would be white and match the sidebar too. No javascript tweaks needed on the individual portfolio pages, just select “Fit Always” as an option when you publish your portfolio page. Homepage slides will require a simple one-line tweak. Basically, you just need to open the homepage template file and change this:

fit_always : 0,

to this:

fit_always : 1,

Then just change your background color to white.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification on anything!

Hi, I have used this theme for an institute’s website and it looks great. Great theme. Thanks. :) But since last two weeks the front page images (Slider images) have a peculiar pixel print on them. (http://pestrust.edu.in/pesitm/“) I checked if the images have got corrupted, but no, the images are fine. I tried all possible sorts of repair. But none worked. Do you have any idea what could have gone wrong? It was looking perfect for six months and suddenly this happened. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks in advance.

2winFactor

Hi Vinaymanyan,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

This dotted overlay has always been part of the theme. If you want to remove it, just add this to the “Custom CSS” box in Theme Options > Customize:

.lines, .linesmobile {
background:none;
}

Hello, first of all I would like to tell you that your theme is really smart !! Let me ask you some questions before i purchase the theme.

- I would be sure that is possible to have two portfolio…? - I need to have social icons, is it possible too ?

Thanks in advance for your answer, hoping it is positive !

2winFactor

Hi Jcriche,

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

1. There aren’t “Two” portfolios with the theme, however, it does automatically create pages for different categories. So if you wanted two different pages for Illustration and Web Design you could do that. Examples are Here and Here

2. That’s not included with the theme, however, there are several different plugins that may be able to help you add social icons to your site. Here’s one example:

Amazing theme! I have been looking for the perfect theme and going through so many that I was unhappy with until now. I LOVE IT! I’m just having one issue trying to se it up. When I created the portfolio to show up on my homepage it only shows the featured image and doesn’t allow me to see the slideshow unless I set up a button and then click on the button. How can I change it so it goes right to the slideshow? Thanks so much!

Quick questions.

1) on video homepage can we use a hosted video or use custom embed code from something like easy video suite

2) how hard would it be to put a email collection form instead of showing a caption on a video (including the homepage)

3) also can the menu (left side) be hidden on the homepage ThX

2winFactor

Hi hwhite,

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

1) The theme’s video background only supports Youtube and Vimeo. You’d need to make some modifications to the theme to extend this functionality. This type of customization would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. You’d need to implement these changes yourself of seek the help of a 3rd-party programmer to assist you with something like this.

2) This is also something that you’d need to make some modifications to do.

3) You mean have it “close” by default? Yes, but again this would involve more cusomizations.

Hi. Thanks for the theme. I use it as a parent theme for my child theme. Google Fonts are not working for me. I choose fonts from Theme Options and save, but nothing happens on site.

Any ideas?

Actually Google Fonts are not working even when using theme as a normal theme at the server that I’m using. They are working on localhost though, so nothing wrong in the theme.

Do you know what this function requires from server? :O

2winFactor

Hi Richidi,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!

I’m not sure what’s going wrong – I’d have to see a live version link of your site to see why google fonts are not loading. It does sound like a server issue though, have you tried contacting your hosting company? Perhaps they’re just blocking the external google code from working.

thanks Andre. I solved the problem! If you move the entire project to wordpress from one server to another, the portfolio must be insert again and old portfolio deleted.

i hope this solution is helpful

2winFactor

Hi Ditieri,

Hmmm… interesting. Glad you got it figured out!

Just a few clarification questions – which portfolio must be inserted again? Each of the portfolio items? It’s very strange – the portfolio options are just WordPress’ standard custom fields. Any more information you can give me will help!

hi there! Possible new purchaser here. Nice theme! Just a couple questions before I buy:

1. Can I remove that overlay on the homepage slider easily? Are there other ‘overlay’ choices?

2. Where are the social media icons? I don’t see in preview. Can they be easily added on that left sidebar on the bottom?

3. I will be uploading many photos for a photography portfolio. Is this an easy upload i can do all at once or will I have to essentially create a “post” of sorts for every single photo (in a gallery or collection)?

4. I can also have a video collection or page in my portfolio with several videos? Thanks!! Lisa

2winFactor

Hi Lisa!

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

1. Yep! You can easily remove that overlay with some custom css in the theme options panel. I’d be happy to assist you with that if you need help. That’s the only choice that comes with the theme, but you’re welcome to add your own if you like.

2. This isn’t a feature that’s included with the theme, however, there are a ton of social shortcode plugins that can help extend this functionality.

3. No need to create posts for individual images. Just upload all the images at once and set them in your portfolio item edit page. Here’s a screenshot of that page:

http://themeforest.net/theme_previews/2632480-bigformat-responsive-fullscreen-wordpress-theme?index=7&url_name=bigformat-responsive-fullscreen-wordpress-theme

4. Only one fullscreen video per portfolio item is supported by the theme. You can embed as many videos as you like into the content area of the post or page though.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Default-user

Hi Andre! Thanks so much for the fast reply. Just to clarify: 2. Is adding social media icons something you will do to an updated version? I’m just wondering as it seems pretty standard with themes as to why they aren’t part of it? And if not, will I be able to put them at the bottom of that left sidebar with that plug-in you suggested? 3. The screenshots you showed are for the slider. I was talking about populating my portfolios (what you call projects) with different categories. For example I will have Project headings like “Video”, “writing” and “Photography” and inside those I would like to have different folders/categories (ie: Inside Photography would be “travel photography”, “food photography”, etc). That’s possible, correct? Also…for a writing category, can i have it that if you click on the photo..it’s actually a hotlink to another site? Hope i’m explaining all this correctly! THanks again..hoping to buy tomorrow! Lisa

2winFactor

Hi Lisa,

2) Perhaps in the future, although nothing is planned yet. However, there are a ton of great plugins that will extend this. Here’s one of my favorites:

http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-social-icons/

You’d need to make a small modification to get them to display below the navigation in the sidebar, but it’s something I can help you with.

3. You mean have sub-categories? Yep – the portfolio categories work just like regular post categories. Is that what you’re asking?

Getting a photo to link to another site would involve some modifications to the theme.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification!

Hi I’m thinking of buying BigFormat.

Can I include Portfolio feature into a FullPage?

2winFactor

Hi Fumes,

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

I apologize, I’m not sure I understand your question. Isn’t the portfolio already full width? Could you clarify this a bit? Thanks!

Andre

Default-user

sorry about that,

In my main menu, there will be 2 separate portfolios for my Japanese landscape business.

DESIGN > this will be dedicated to the gardens I’ve made & it’ll be like your demo. Click DESIGN, and filterable thumbnails will appear.

MAINTENANCE > this will be dedicated to my garden maintenance. Click MAINTENANCE and it’ll be something like this: - a photo of me pruning at the top, followed by introduction text, tabs with Q&A’s, and lastly filterable thumbnails to show people specific maintenance work (i.e. pine tree client A, pine tree client B, cloud pruning client A, B, C, wisteria client A, B, etc.)

When the site is completed, I’ll be sending each client URL’s of the pages dedicated to their garden, so they can show their friends.

I’ve began making the website using GoodSpace (its a great theme, but I feel BigFormat has more IMPACT! + BigFormat allows you to add lots of info unlike the other fullscreen themes which are more about just showing photos…). If above explanation is unclear, I can send you e-mail with login so I can show you my sample site. If you need this let me know~

Cheers!

2winFactor

Hi Fumes,

Adding the design section would be easy, however, you’d need to make some modifications to the theme to add the “maintenance” page you mention. Basically you’d need to create an additional page template to show the maintenance posts so that you could add page content above it. Then in the content area you could add a photo and then some introductions text, and tabs.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Andre

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response!

It sounds simple but i can image itll be tricky. making it work in a responsive way too… Perhaps I can make the MAINTENANCE page with text, photos, tab, etc, and Simply add thumbnails at the bottom. Say you click thumbnail “client A”, that post opens up in new tab. ? not as sleek but itll do the job..

2winFactor

Hi Fumes,

Hmmm… I’m not sure – I’m having a hard time picturing what you’re talking about. We only can help with bugs and helping you get set up. We also help with small customizations if they only involve a few lines of code. If it’s not in the demo, it’s likely going to involve customizations to the theme.

Hi I’m thinking of buying BigFormat.

On a particular project, Is there a way of hiding the ‘more info’ pop-up by simply clicking the full-screen photo in the background? Or any suggestions?

why? I’m gonna be using ‘more info’ a lot. I’d take potential clients through the whole process of the project start to finish with photos, diagrams, etc. So the ‘more info’ part will be really long. In your Demo, when you scroll down the ‘more info’, the only way to go back to looking at the full-page photos is to scroll back up and click ‘hide text’. It’d be nice to make this transition more user-friendly…

2winFactor

Hi Fumes,

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

This isn’t included as a feature in the theme. You might be able to make the button float with the page scroll. Basically, you’d just need to absolute position the plus button to the right of the content. Then when it scrolls you can click it to hide the more info. However, you’d need to make some modifications to the theme to extend this functionality. This type of customization would go beyond the scope of support for the theme.

Hi Andre,

Love your BigFormat theme! A couple pre-purchase questions…

- Does it work well with Vimeo Pro private videos? Can the theme obtain the thumbnails on its own or will I need to create them myself for Vimeo Pro private videos?

- Does this theme come with free updates? If not can you tell me roughly how much you charge for them?

- Do you plan to include HD / Retina in a future update?

- Do you have a best of list… what your customers have done with this theme?

Thanks!

2winFactor

Hi goDoggo,

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

- I’m not super familiar with the vimeo pro private videos. However, if you can share or embed the private video, then it should work with the theme.

- Of course! Free updates for life! :)

- That’s not planned currently, but it may come in a future update depending on demand.

- Unfortunately, not. There were a lot of great sites, but for some reason I never wrote them down anywhere. I should start keeping track!

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Hello,

When using the tabs shortcode am I able to have a page with multiple tabs lets say they are called (A, B & C). Can I then have links on my nav bar called A B C and when clicked on they go to my page to the specific tab opened up? For example lets say I clicked on A, I would then be taken to the page with the A tab open.

Hi Morganbrooks,

There’s no “Deep Linking” of the tabs, meaning you can’t have a specific tab open at the start. The first tab will always be the open one by default. However, you could always extend this functionality with a plugin if you like. Maybe something like this?
