I have purchased this theme, and I regret it.

It is not customizable. Even the advertised full width option is not available without extensive coding.

I tried to change the coding, and it didn’t work.

I’m eager to finally start my blog, so I’m cutting my losses and move on.

Hi,

The theme is certainly customisable. The full width option is very simple to use as it’s a page template, no coding involved.

If you need help using the theme then feel free to contact us in our support forums.

to INRI…
Yeah I know, that is the Price you have to pay for a Minimal theme, it’s not just Orman, it’s most minimal themes creators who think minimal design is also minimal functionality and maximum Pricing. Personally I hate it too.

To Orman:
I just Got an Update notification, could you tell me what has changed, do you have a version log?

OrmanClark

Hi,

The theme doesn’t include minimal functionality at all. Can you let me know which functionality is missing for a theme of this type?

I will post a changelog for all to view, however, I would hold off updating if you haven’t already as we’re about to release yet another update today/tomorrow.

Thank you Orman, It’s just that the theme is so “literal” which is good, but not so good. From the very start we wanted to be able to make multiple “front pages” allowing to filter that content with categories. I wanted show 3 categories on the front WEB, DESIGN, PRINT and each will lead to another page similar to the front page, with “examples of WEB” etc
This is a portfolio theme, but has no gallery or portfolio “Page” which I understand can be added with a plugin, and the front page IS the portfolio, but would of been a nice extra.
I can’t remember anymore; but if we are going all high class & shiiiit then maybe styling for Gravity forms could be included, and other plugins that are “likely” to be used with this theme.

Its just an over all nice feeling when you look at a theme and say, Wow, they covered that aspect too?! instead of, ah crap! what frikin plugin must I find to make THIS work.

Anyway, the theme is SOLID, I payed what I payed because I believe in it. But to be honest it is kind of useless to me, because i like functionality, I like selection and variety, I like tons of pre styled elements which I can tweak. This theme is like a foundation almost a bare bone frame work, Minimal.

Or – Being a Portfolio Theme:

Add a pre styled “Author” Page, some kind of cool “CV” displaying feature… I don’t know, just something to play around with.

I always saw ThemeZilla as the guys who do Awesome Themes and then provide Plugins to compliment those themes. I really set my expectations high, (bought 3 of your themes) thinking you will eventually have a wide variety of plugins that will work seamlessly with your themes and sort of build a Themzilla Ecosystem which will allow us users to build websites using only the features that we’d like to use… anyways, that is just my thoughts and are irrelevant to the fact that this is a nicely coded, neat theme that is completely worth $50

OrmanClark

Thanks for the follow up. I think we may just have different views on what should be included in a theme and what should be provided by user content or plugins.

Thanks for the kind words about the theme.

@ INRI – Did you try contacting the support team? They appear to be very responsive and would probably help you with the theme. But you might also want to ask yourself “is this theme best suited for blogging?” The theme itself is great but it may not be the best fit for what you need.

@TheAlikA – Any designer can take a minimal theme like this and turn it into something great. It’s all about what you’re able to bring to the table. Personally, I hate themes that aren’t minimal because they add in extra features that should really be handled by plugins.

There seems to be a problem with this theme. In the portfolio section under ‘Gallery Settings’ when you click upload images it just pops up a never ending loading bar and hangs there infinitely. I’ve tried getting the upload images to work both online and locally. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

@Inri @TheAlikA I find this theme actually one of the best I ever worked with.

It’s so clearly coded that it’s quite easy to customize, I made mine WooCommerce compatible without much trouble.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Orman, I’m having some problems trying to customize the blog page as I couldn’t find any blog template. Just want to show only the excerpt and the post thumbnail on blog page and search results. I’ve been trying to add conditionals on page.php with no luck, any light on this would be appreciated, thanks!

Hello Orman

Very nice design and implementation. Ive got one problem though. Im having trouble to replicate the section in the preview link where it says “Howdy Partner. I am John Doe. Designer, Developer, Good Egg. Take a look at some of my recent work below.” I cant seem to put text to that header part and if it is empty it is still occupying the same height pushing down the portfolios. Cheers!

Hi, Really like the design of your themes guys. Regarding Blox, can you post here a very quick explanation about how to make a home page looking like yours in the demo you published? Cheers !

Hello there,

any plans for a Team page soon?

OrmanClark

Hi, there are no plans to add a team page.

Got a pre-sales question for you: Does the Blox theme support single-page scrolling through your menu? And do you know of a plug-in which will fix the header while the theme scrolls? Inquiring minds want to know!

OrmanClark

Hi,

You can certainly jump to each individual “block” on the homepage yes. You would need to use some sort of smooth scrolling plugin to make it look a little better.

I wouldn’t be able to answer about the sticky header plugin, but that’s something a developer could do for you in no time at all.

Excellent! Many thanks!

Hi – great theme. How do I change the slideshow settings? I.e. how do I set it to auto transition and remove the image grid underneath? Thanks.

Hi Orman,

Great theme.

I’m tempted to buy, however without a gallery option I’m hesitant. Add a gallery page option that fits the theme + add $10 to the cost, I will definitely buy.

Alternatively, can you recommend a gallery plugin that would suit this theme?

Regards,

Andrew

OrmanClark

Andrew,

There are no plans to add a gallery template I’m afraid. You could indeed use a gallery plugin, there is a huge variety to choose from. Unfortunately I couldn’t recommend a specific plugin but I’m positive there will be more than one solution.

Hi,

I purchased your theme here, however, I can’t access your support forum at themezilla. If I knew that was the case I would have purchased over there.

I’m unclear how to add the portfolio items to my home page (similar to your sample) ??… there’s nothing in the documentation. Can you please help?

Default-user

Apologies.. just found it (page attributes, portfolio template)

Would be good if could access your support forum. I’m sure it’s answered there already.

OrmanClark

Hi,

Glad you managed to get it sorted. You can indeed access the support forums to ask any questions, you just need to create an account here https://www.themezilla.com/sign-up/themeforest/

Orman, Any plans to update it to Retina anytime soon? Or any workaround to make the logo [image] look better?

OrmanClark

No immediate plans I’m afraid. You may have some luck with one of the many Retina plugins out there.

Hi, are some plan to update this for the latest Wordpress Version?

OrmanClark

We’ll be updated themes as required e.g. when a bug has been found.

Something about this theme is tricky. I dove in thinking it would be simple, read the manual and I am scratching my head.

How do I get things like quote, posts, – things that you show in your live preview – onto the homepage ? The hierarchy isn’t clear to me. I have posts, quotes, full-width pages, and two portfolios. Only the two portfolios are showing up on the homepage. What am I missing ?

Default-user

OK, so it’s clear that only portfolios can show up on the homepage. But it looks like you have things other than portfolios in the demo version: http://themeforest.net/item/blox-bold-wordpress-portfolio-theme/full_screen_preview/3135390

Hi there, is this theme compatible with WP 3.9? I seem to have lost all Portfolio setting options in my latest WP upgrade :-/ Thanks.
