Hi,

I´m seriously considering buying this template. The only thing my client requires is that the top menu is visible per default, instead of being closed. This is a very small adjustment, I just need to know beforehand that this will not be a problem to change. Also, all the issues regarding the background on a touchscreen and IE8 compatibility, are these fixed with patches etc.?

Hi fabelmik!

Sure, the menu may be displayed as defaulf.

Thanks, that sounds great. Is this something you can set in the admin configuration of the theme or does it require me to hack the JS code?

htmgarcia

You just need to add a Custom CSS code inside the template params in admin ( http://themeforest.net/item/bismuth-all-in-one-responsive-joomla-template/4741591/faqs/16678 ).

Hi again,

Thanks for a great template. I purchased it yesterday and I have now made the design pretty much the way my client wants it.

The only thing I am looking for is a way to show Soundcloud Audio the same way you show YouTube by inserting e.g. youtube:YE7VzlLtp-4 as caption to the article image.

Is there an easy way to integrade Soundcloud the same way YouTube and Vimeo is integrated?

htmgarcia

Great fabelmik! Unfortunately we don’t support this kind of showcase. May you send us FTP access and a <iframe> or HTML code example of SoundCloud to generate this feature in articles? – use this form: http://themeforest.net/user/htmgarcia

Hello friend, 1. can this theme be extended for multi-user login so that many different people can login in and post their own images and text ?

2. can it be used for multiple bloggers ?

thanks, Jai Gurudev

Hi Just bought the theme but im pretty new to joomla- would love to know if I allready installed joomla with a auto installer, can I then through extensions – still install the quickstar zip to get it with preview content or can i only choose to install the theme template without the demo content? hope you can help:)

htmgarcia

Hi katjagry! Thanks for purchasing Bismuth :)

Sorry for the late. You may install the template (and the other extensions) in an existing Joomla website; or you may choose use the quickstart installation for a new Joomla website ( I strongly recommend this option). Tell me if this was helpful for you.

Hi I Just bought the theme and me and my customer love it… A question,is it possible to make a static background in all page except HOME…i mean just HOME page have slide image but others just static…

thanks

htmgarcia

Hi adamasia! Thanks for purchasing Bismuth :)

Sure, you may add just a single image (to work as background) and assign this to all pages, except HOME in Menu Assignments option (this may be done in Extensions > Template Manager > Styles > vg_bismuth – xxx.

You can duplicate this Template Style (using the option Duplicate on top of the Template Manager > Styles). The new one – duplicated – Template Style can be assigned to the Home page only (remember to change the Slideshow params choosing more images to get the slideshow preview). Also, please read this FAQ support

Tell me if this was helpful for you, please. Regards.

Ok. Please open the documentation file inside the zip file you downloaded from ThemeForest, there is a folder name documentation/index.html locate the section “Explaining Every Section” > Services as example. There we pointed step by step instructions to create modules in One Page behavior.

Let me know if this worked for you. Regards

Hi I dont understand how the portfolio slideshow works and how to insert the 3 images as per your example. The sample included does not show it either. Thanks in advance.

htmgarcia

Hi kakshaks! Thanks for purchasing Bismuth :)

We recommend you read the documentation file in the zip that you downloaded from ThemeForest (documentation/ folder). There we pointed instructions to managed every section.

About how works the Portfolio slideshow (an certainly most of the content is managed in similar way). The content is managed using the Content Component (under Content > Article Manager and Content >Category Manager ) – basically you create articles with Intro and Full Text Images (in Images and Links > Intro Image / Full text Image ). Those images are displayed in the slideshow (the intro ones) .
In demo we put this articles in “Awesome Works” Category. To edit the content in left of the slidwshow (pure text), just edit the Category Description field (in Content > Category Manager > Awesome Works category)

Tell me if this was helpful for you, kakshaks

Hi, thanks for the reply but I am still struggling. I have created a Last Works module with Alternative layout: slide-portfolio called Awesome Works. I have created the category called ‘Awesome Works’. I have created 3 articles, each with a category of ‘Awesome Works’. Each article contains a ‘Intro Image’ which I want to show in the slideshow. However, only 1 slide displays. In your sample that is included with the template, there are no articles as examples and so I cannot see if there are any differrent settings. I do see all 3 slides on your live preview but obviously cannot see the Joomla backend to see how it is achieved. I have read the documentation but again, no help in explaining the setup of the Awesome Works articles. Thanks in advance. K

Ok, let’s check your website to solve this, kakshaks.

Upps… sorry… seems my previous comment is not a bug but an “intended feature” of the “multiple pages” version of the template… I definitely prefer the “one page” though… But anyways, well done! :)

htmgarcia

Don’t worry :)

We covered both options.

Hi!

Is it possible to have a 3+ column photo gallery instead of the portfolio thats in the preview?

htmgarcia

Hi fluxxsimon!

This can be possible adding Custom CSS code to get more columns in same row. A customer did it and worked (very easy if you have a good CSS knowledge)

Great template! I’m having a little trouble with it though. No syntax for plugins or loading modules is working. For example:

{likefptodownload downloadurl=”http://domain/joomla_black.zip”}

{module [118]}

Just appears as text in the frontend rather then the module or plugin it should load.

I appreciate your help with this.

htmgarcia

Hi MedleyMedia!

Unfortunately the module doesn’t support this plugins as those plugins are focused to work in Articles and (maybe) in Custom HTML modules.

Kind regards, Valentín

Default-user

Hello, thank you for your response. I have tried using these plugins in articles as well with no luck. Please assist.

Default-user

Hello?

htmgarcia

So, which plugins are those? – Check if are enabled in Extensions > Plugin Manager Important: If are third party extensions, you may ask for support to the developer.

Waiting for your comments. Regards

Default-user

Hi there, pretty much all the plugins, I’ve tried so many, including native Joomla 2.5 plugins ie> {loadposition xx} . They are definitely enabled. A plugin developer gave me this tidbit of information this morning:

“A problem occurs on your website and we are looking for solutions The function create by joomla plugins do not work on your site Ex: function onAfterRender() work in the entire system site joomla but it not work in your site”

htmgarcia

Some plugins are not prepared to work on all extensions. maybe is an issue there.

Regards

Default-user

Joomla native plugins should work. {loadposition xx} should work. Have you tried?

htmgarcia

The loadposition code works for Articles. Last works module doesn’t support the commented plugins.

Please contact here: http://themeforest.net/user/htmgarcia – add all the previous details to find another way to suit your needs.

Default-user

Sorry, my email bounced back so I am messaging you here. Thank you for your attention yo this matter. The plugin is used at the bottom of the Mixtapes module, as well it is used in the first article in the News section.

Hi Just purchased this template. Having some trouble with module positions.

I have followed your instructions about the external menu and the appearance of the module positions (services, portfolio….). for example (#section-contact) But they dont appear. Could you tell me what I am doing wrong? the only module positions i have got are the following:

bismuth-bodybottom-a vg_bismuth bismuth-bodybottom-b vg_bismuth bismuth-bodytop-a vg_bismuth bismuth-bodytop-b vg_bismuth bismuth-bottom-a vg_bismuth bismuth-bottom-b vg_bismuth bismuth-footerbottom vg_bismuth bismuth-footertop vg_bismuth bismuth-menu vg_bismuth bismuth-social vg_bismuth

htmgarcia

Did you used the quickstart package (that includes demo content) or you installed the template in an existing Joomla website?

Kind regards

Default-user

Its ok i figured it out! Just had to type it into the module position instead of clicking on it in the module editor. :-)

Default-user

I cant seem to get the slider in the portfolio section to work. I followed the instructions but all i get is the images on top of each other and not in the slide. I installed the template in an existing Joomla website 2.5.14 any help would be great :-)

htmgarcia

The article (that lives in teh Category you configured in this module) must have the shortcode for slideshow. In documentation we point how to add an slideshow in an article in the Caption fields, like: slide:path/to/folder/

Regards

Default-user

thanks, also (sorry to keep on badgering you) how do you get two modules on the same line, like you did with the video and questions on the FAQ bit of the site? Thanks!

htmgarcia

Is not two modules. The video (on right) is placed editing the Category description (under Content > Category Manager).

Please try and tell me if this worked for you.

Hello me again. could you tell me how you achieved to get the writing on the lefthand side of the Contact section? I can get the map up but when I put writing in the same field as the map within the Contact circle module, the writing comes out black and in arial font without being able to edit.

any help would be great

Hi rstarbuck!

Sure, try wrapping the text with html tags like:
<div style="color:#fff">
Please send us an email if you wish to have a quote or have any questions. We look forward from hearing from you. </div>

In this way you may add white color. About the font, I noticed in Fireox that is loaded with Lato (a Google font configured in template params by default)

Let me know if this was helpful.
