Hi. Very much considering your theme. I understand that you are planning to make shortcodes available for elements like the pricing table. Is this the case? The video instruction for coding the pricing table is a bit beyond my ability.

A question: could a direct link from portfolio image to external url be possible?

Thanks in advance.

pixelgrade

Hi,

Yes – we`re considering introduce shortcodes for pricing table . For now – the portfolio items link to their pages – but that`s a good idea. I think we will introduce that pretty soon.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

1. In the meantime, would it be complicated to add a Button to items in the Portfolio Grid layout? 2. The quotation “Great Structured Design” on the homepage & the black box with John Black: are these elements available off the shelf (as shortcodes) or are they custom coded?

Many thanks indeed in advance.

pixelgrade

1. What kind of button ? 2. Those elements are similar to “posts”. For now the only place where you can show is on the homepage. You can set how many you want to show too.

Sorry I wasn’t being clear. I mean, for example, a VISIT WEBSITE button linked to an external URL. What is important to me is to give users the option of linking from the Portfolio Grid environment directly to an external site without having to go the individual Portfolio item.

Thanks

pixelgrade

Good to know! We will think about that – maybe we can find a way to include that button. I`m not sure now if is relevant for most of users. What about a link directly on the photo item?

Hi I’m interested in this theme. One thing I’ve noticed though, this example site does not look good on my smartphone http://standimpro.ch/ The slider text does not fit. Also the navigation does not fit correctly. I had to use an example because your site does not work on a cell phone at all. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Ace. Tony
pixelgrade

Hi – try direct link – http://pixelgrade.com/demos/bliv/ – not the themeforest preview inside an iFrame. The text should fit.

Default-user

Thanks that’s looking a lot better. Couple of points

1. The Tabs on the Features page aren’t very responsive, they wrap onto the next line.

2. I can’t see how to get to sub-menu items, e.g. Pages -> Typography etc.

3. Is there a way to filter Portfolio items, e.g. Print, Web, Design etc

Tony

pixelgrade

Hi Tony,

1.Depends how much text you have there. We will try to find a solution for those on very small screens. 2.Submenus are not responsive now – we will make it soon. 3.We`re working on that just now – so will be available soon.

Thanks

Default-user

The theme works better on an iPad but I have a smartphone and there just needs to be a few more tweaks for that size format – I’ve got the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 and I think the screen size is pretty common: 320×480 pixels, 3.5 inches. Thanks a lot for your feedback. Tony

We will test on that phone too (we have a very similar one at the office) and we will optimize for it.

hello i have 2 presale questions :

a) is there a way to disable responsive layout to this theme

b) i noticed that in recent portfolio (front page) you have a transition over picture from black and white to color. This shows up only in google chrome . when i check demo in mozilla or IE there is not transition. is this possible to be fixed ?

thanks

Chris

pixelgrade

Hi,

a)not an option on the backend – I`m not sure why you will choose that? You can delete some scss to disable the responsive layout b)The b&w effect is a CSS3 filter – so it`s supported only on modern browsers. In the old browsers will be just a color image as a fallback.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks

I have some pre-purchase doubts:

1) How easy is to upgrade to files in this theme? I have worked with so many themes from envato that I’ve seen everything regarding this: theme authors who want you to upgrade all files just like that and all your customizations are gone; theme authors who give you a parent and a child theme; theme authors who list you which exact files have changed so you upgrade only those and you’ll know if you’ll lose or not the customizations. Which case is Bliv’s? 2) Is there a custom css box at settings panel? 3) Which SEO steps did you take to design this theme in terms of H1, H2, etc? 4) Does it have a support forum and what’s the average time to respond to tickets? 5) Does the theme fully support IE8 and IE9?

Thanks for your patience and responses in advance!

pixelgrade

Hi,

1)We can provide a list of changed files so you can update only those. 2)We didn`t have that option for now. 3)H1 for main page title, H3 for sidebar widget titles, semantic and clean markup etc 4)No – we don`t have so many requests. As soon as we will need a support forum, be sure we will implement it. Average response time it`s very low – few hours usually. 5)The theme has fallbacks for IE8 (especially when using CSS3 transitions) – but all the functionality it`s supported on IE8 & IE9

Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks

Are you thinking about adding a custom css box to theme settings, then? I wonder if I have to be a CSS expert to change minor stuff like colors…

pixelgrade

You can change the colors by using the color picker from Theme Options.

Hi, is there any way to set up site to look like preview in a click or 2? I’ve tried importing xml content from the theme’s folder but it gives me a php error.

pixelgrade

The setup is pretty straight forward.

We have made a video that will go through the process (installing wordpress, activate the theme, import the demo content and configure the theme).

Check it out: http://www.screenr.com/V6t7 (part I) and http://www.screenr.com/NJt7 (part II).

Same question as ubikuos. I don’t find much in the way of setup instructions in the documentation file. I love what you have done here design-wise, but I’m going to need some assistance getting this up and running. There’s no footer on install or anything!

Thank you in advance!

Really poor set-up instructions. Basically it’s like a moving-target: you have to guess how the theme authors have structured everything. You upload a logo, for instance, but no directions on the size etc. So a lot of time wasted. It’s probably the first theme I’ve bought at Themeforest like this (and I’ve bought dozens…)

Documentation refers to css and credits but quite amazingly no to set-up…so it’s more like a barebone theme maybe for pure css designers and developers than for rest of humans.

I’d appreciate if you could fix this situation and help the rest of buyers (humans)

Thanks!

pixelgrade

We will make a video to show you the wordflow, but until then let me give you some instructions because it’s very easy.

Go to Tools > Import. Install the Wordpress importer plugin (click on the last link in the list). After the plugin has installed and activated, go again to Tools > Import and in the upload field select the demo.xml file and hit Upload and Import. That’s it. You now have all the demo pages.

Nope, I’ve tried that already. No offense, but that was taken for granted. It only uploads media files, but not pages nor posts. Besides it’s been 25 minutes to just add a logo that fits in header. So then I decided to modify header height so it fits the squared-shape logo but I’m struggling to find in the sass folder where exactly I can modify “header.site-header {etc etc”

Hi pixelgrade thanks for the screencasts. I had a problem uploading the xml file, it seems it requires + memory/time limit than the one set by my ISP so they had to change to 200secs. I see now demo files and I’ll check your screencasts.

I wish you good luck!

Hi.

I’ve just paid for your theme.

I’m wondering how to access the elements listed under Features in your menu, such as columns, tabs etc. I cannot see them as shortcodes in the Editor. And the documentation, such that it is, does not mention how to create them.

Regards

pixelgrade

Hi Jarol,

For now you can just copy the html markup to create columns, tabs etc.

Thanks

jaroljmek Purchased

Hi.

I feel it is misleading to call these elements Features because in fact they are simply raw html. So either I have to download your sample pages and copy, or learn how to create buttons, columns etc in html?

This is not what I expected. In themes these days there are usually shortcodes provided for the user to create such elements as columns, boxes etc in order to save time.

Regards

pixelgrade

This theme support shortcodes – you can use a plugin like Visual Composer or a free one like Zillashortcodes to generate columns, buttons etc. We couldn`t include shortcodes directly into theme (even if we wanted) due to TF policy of altering some WP core functions. We plan to have a plugin included in theme folder so users can use it. Thanks for understanding.

All the themes I bought here come with shortcodes. So it’s not a themeforest issue.

Just in case other buyers are in the same annoying situation: you can try buying a plugin called Styles with Shortcodes from Righthere user at Codecanyon…I don’t know if it works with this theme, or if there’ll be a conflict. I hope not. Best of luck.

pixelgrade

Yes – we have to use a plugin to have shortcode. Without a plugin, a theme cannot have shortcodes. I hope you understand.

First off, I love the theme you have and it’s very beautiful.

However I have a question since your theme .php are set-up different and there seems to be a whole different naming structure. I’m trying to change the permalink structure by changing the word ‘portfolio’ aka ‘projects’ into something else

Example: www.mysite.com/project/in-and-out into www.mysite.com/case-study/in-and-out

pixelgrade

Hi,

I think I understand what you want. Unfortunately currently Bliv doesn’t have an option to edit the archive slug for portfolio, but you can manually edit this in the php file : bliv/inc/post-types/portfolio.php at the line 27 where you will find:

'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => _x( 'project', 'URL slug', 'wpgrade' ) ),

In this case this should be:

'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => _x( 'case-study', 'URL slug', 'wpgrade' ) ),

That`s it! Let me know if it helps.

Thanks

Default-user

The good news, it does do what I wanted and portfolio items now link to the URL structure I wanted, Example: /home/case-study/bacon

The Bad news, I get 404 error. All content new and old are still posted and stuck on ‘project’ Example: /home/project/bacon

pixelgrade
New good news: After you had changed the slug you need to flush the rewrite rules :)

To do this you can simply go to “Settings->Permalinks” and hit “Save changes”.

Hi,

I just bought B:Liv because it’s very cool and I believe (pun intended) it is perfect for my company’s website. I’m very excited to start working with it.

I wish you the very best with this theme. Hope you get lots of downloads!

I like the theme and want to add a opt in box on every page. Can the right sidebar be activated for every page including the home page?

pixelgrade

Sure – you can set for every page that you have – the sidebar template.

Default-user

Thank you!

Another Question regarding simplifying the theme…

can the picture header and slider be removed completely so I can just have my name or brand name in text?

My focus is to highlight content and pictures to engage and break it up and for better readability.

pixelgrade

If you do not set any Featured Images, no image will appear on top (see Pricing Table page)

Default-user

Thank you sir!

Another question… i’ve read through the comments and others have mentioned the theme may have some learning curves and may not be suitable for a newbie, which is exactly what I am.

My concern lies with being able to easily customize the site, add pics to the post, and the short codes that you have provided as well as to make the content more engaging.

Can you elaborate on what steps I should take if I were to purchase your theme and run into these hurdles and how to overcome them?

pixelgrade

In FAQ section there are two videos that you can watch to see how hard is to install & configure. It`s not easy nor hard.

We’re here to offer basic support if you need. Thanks!

Hi there

Great theme, well done. However I have a minor issue. On the home page there is a button (home page advert space), I cannot apply a link to this, i.e. Read More ->, can you advise how I can attach a link to this button?

Thanks

pixelgrade

Hi and Thanks!

Do you meant the “Purchase Now” button – right? If you go to Tools – Theme Options – Homepage Advert Space – here you can add the “href” tag and change the link. After that you can use Visual tab too. Check out this video: http://www.screenr.com/Sjz7

Hi there, beautiful theme! We’re really excited about implementing it. However, we need to disable the responsive layout for our particular use of the theme. I realize this is an odd request is it is such a cool feature in the theme – but if you could point me to the specific SCSS that needs to be removed in order to achieve this I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

pixelgrade

Hi,

Yeah – that`s pretty odd. I think you have to go to _grid.scss and remove max-width: 100%; from line 3. Also on function from line 192 you should change “12” to ”$span”. Then you can regenerate the css.

Let me know if it works.

Default-user

Thank you very much for the quick response. Forgive my ignorance, I attempted your suggestion but am guessing I am missing something with the css regeneration. SCSS is brand new to me – do I have to compile it somehow into order to have changes take effect? I searched around the web but couldn’t sort out how to regenerate the css. Thank you again.

pixelgrade

You have to open start.rb file – it`s that easy. Not forget to install Ruby and Compass first. Check this out: http://thesassway.com/beginner/getting-started-with-sass-and-compass

You sir, are a magician. Thank you for your patience! Worked like a charm, keep up the great work :):)

Thank you! I`m glad I can help!

Default-user

Sorry to bother you again, is there a quick way to enable horizontal scrolling? Then we’ll be all set!

pixelgrade

No – horizontal scroll is bad even if Microsoft push it in front of us with their Win8. The only way of scrolling in this theme is vertical. Sorry :)

Hi,

I’ve purchased your theme, and I think it’s design it’s great!

I have a little question about this theme.

Is it possible to do two different portfolios with different content? What I want to do is one of the portfolio dedicated to photos and the other to videos.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, At the moment there is only one main category from where you can display portfolios items. Thanks

Great theme! I’m really enjoying it and think it’s deserving of a 5 star rating.

Quick Question: I want to use and link the buttons included on the demo “Features” page, but when I insert a URL, the button font changes from white to red. I would like to link the buttons while retaining the white font. Is there an easy way to this? My apologies for such an amateur question, as I’m still fairly new to html and css.

pixelgrade

Hi! That`s simple!

Just use another mark-up with the same classes. Like this:

<a href="#url" class="btn btn-primary">Link Button</a>

and a button with white text will appear :)

Cheers

Default-user

Great! Thanks for the prompt response.
