Hi,

This theme looks great and I’m thinking of purchasing. Is this theme compatible with WP 3 .3?

2winFactor

Hi Nathan,

Yes, the theme has been fully tested with Wordpress 3.3

Hello,

I am planning to purchase this template but I first want to know if there is any way I can configure it so that it displays categories (or skills as you call them) to the upper part of the portfolio. I want to use these “skills” as hotlinks to filter out the contents displayed underneath.

Hope you can help. Thanks Tudor

2winFactor

Hi Tudor,

That feature doesn’t exist in the theme at the moment. You’d need to modify the template a bit in order to get that to work.

Hello Andre

LOVE this theme and have been busy making it my own – I have somehow blocked myself from your forum (incorrect login?) so hope you don’t mind a quick question here…

I can’t seem to create my own menu items, with secondary nav options on the main laft side panel.

I’ve tried it using the widget, but this just ads it underneath the main menu, where I actually want to recreate your ‘services’ title, with the 3 secondary options (print design, logo design, illust..)

I can add a page and it shows up, but this doesn’t give me the project preview your services option does.

when I create a menu, using skills as the 3 options as instructed, nothing at all appears in hte menu when I preview my site…. help!

Many thanks Bridget

Hi Bhassal,

You’ll need to direct your questions to the support forum. Your login is just your Themeforest username. There’s a password reset feature in case you forgot your password. If you’re still having issues, let me know and I can always reset it for you too.

Does the site has auto install the template, meaning when I upload this to wordpress will it be just like the demo version shown above?

When I upload the site and activate it on wordpress, I would like to it to be just like the demo version so I could make the changes from that.

2winFactor

Hi Jeff,

The theme contains and xml and SQL files to mimic the structure of the demo, but you’ll need to upload your own images to complete the setup. In short, you can go to Tools > Import, upload the included xml file, and add your images to each project and it should be good to go. Let me know if you need further clarification.

I really like this theme, and the directions were pretty easy to follow. Your instructions PDF document was essential reading for me.

I will note it took me quite a while to figure out that anything visible I put in the Visual or HTML editor on a portfolio item was just going to get in my way. Maybe I missed that in the instructions for posting a video, but now that I have that straight, it looks to be working as I expected.

Thanks for your work, and your helpful forum/faq pages.

2winFactor

Thanks bdb! I appreciate it man! Feel free to let me know if you have any additional questions.

Cheers, Andre

I just wanted to say what a fantastic theme this is! It is beautiful, easy to use and Andre offers in-depth help on his support forum that is wonderful! I highly recommend buying this theme as it is worth every penny and I cannot wait to buy another one of his themes!

Wow! Thanks for the shout-out Jenna! Made my day!

Hello-

Is there any way to have more than 6 slideshow images under each portfolio item? Or are we only limited to the 6 uploads/portfolio item?

Thanks

Rachel

Hi Rachel,

You need to register with your Themeforest Username: racheldowd. If you’ve already registered with that username, and you forgot your password, you’ll need to use the “forgot password” link on the login page. If you’re still having issues, I can create the account for you, I just need an email address and your Purchase Code to send the login information.

Hi Andre,

I got it to work and I saw that you have already answered this question. I’m going to try what you suggested, but I am a beginner at this. If I can’t get to work is there any policy for returns? I need a portfolio site that allows quite a few slides per portfolio piece. I’d hate to have to do that because I really love this theme!

Thanks again,

Rachel

2winFactor

Hi Rachel,

I’d be happy to help you in any way I can to add more portfolio items. However, all support request must be made on my Support Forum.

Additionally, Themeforest Authors are not able to issue returns, all request must be made to Envato support.

Thanks!

Hi Andre, Thanks for the great theme. I was hoping you could help me with 2 issues. 1) I am trying to use a standard @font-face call and it only seems to be working on the homepage. 2) When i put a youtube url in a portfolio entry, it doesn’t seem to want to work. I know there was a certain way i had to input a vimeo url to get it to work. Is there a certain way a youtube url has to be for it to play?

Here’s the test site… http://jacobaaronross.com/GPR/ & Here is the portfolio post with the youtube issue… http://jacobaaronross.com/GPR/portfolio/police-2/

..any suggestions are appreciated. Let me know if you need anymore info.

Thanks again, -Jake

Hi Andre,

This theme looks like the perfect basis for the portfolio site I’m about to build, and I’m looking at buying it – I just wondered if the theme currently supports infinite scrolling (or whether this is a matter of a simple edit to the code)? I know you normally deal with questions on your Support Forum, I just can’t ask there as I haven’t bought the theme yet.

Any help you can provide on this would be brilliant, thanks in advance.

Hi Ducan,

Feel free to ask as many questions as you like! Support forum is for product support-related questions. Any pre-buying questions you can ask either in the item comments (as you did) or via email on my contact form on the profile page.

This theme does not support infinite scrolling. You’d need to make some hefty modifications to include that feature. Instead this theme has pagination built into the portfolio pages so you can paginate your items if you have a lot you want to show. Let me know if you need further clarification.

Andre

Hi, nice theme. just want to ask is it possible to put ads banner below the menu on the left side? thanks.

2winFactor

Hi Verejames,

It’s possible, however, you’d need to make some modifications to the theme’s files. You’d need to consult the help of a developer if you’re unfamiliar with html/css and wordpress. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Andre

Do you have dark version demo?

2winFactor

Hi Verejames,

There’s no live demo of the dark version, however, you can see screenshots of the dark version in the item preview. If you have any questions about specific pages in the dark version, just let me know.

Hello, I purchased this theme a while ago and before doing so I asked about the possibility of adding in a top navigation bar into the bookcase theme. Could you advise me how to do so?

Hi, I’m really interested in this theme, but have a few questions before purchasing. I haven’t been able to read through all the comments so forgive me if this has been asked before, I saw already that the individual project pages are limited to six images with the portfolio types unlimited. Is there a way to use multiple levels of the unlimited pages to get more filtering and higher capacity? For example: Category type 1 > sub cat 1 > sub cat 1a > project page (to allow for multiple projects of similar nature to be shown together on sub cat 1a page, etc.) Can descriptions for each of these be easily added on the main portfolio pages in addition to the descriptions that can be written for the project pages? Do you offer support for altering code to get the theme looking the way we need in instances where the functionality isn’t already written into the theme? Thanks!

Default-user

Hi Andre

Thank you for the responses – the only one I still have questions on is the first. I guess I didn’t explain myself clearly enough. My question is if the theme is designed to stack what are called the skill pages. Here is a more clear example: In the side menu is a link for “Drawings” within this link there are separate pages for ink and pencil. Ink and Pencil each have categories for landscape, portrait and still life. Finally, under ink landscapes, there is a project that is “series II” among others. So, would those menus/pages generate separately based on their mapped parent or would I have a whole list on the side menu that would end up cross-mixing landscapes from both the ink and pencil categories? I hope that makes my question more clear. I am just trying to imagine if I can produce a clear filtering system that would handle a large number of projects/skill areas.

Thanks! RR

2winFactor

Hi RRAstisty,

The skills filtering on the sidebar can be whatever you dream up. You just add individual skills pages to the menu, decide what order, which ones are in the dropdown and which aren’t. The menu system only supports up the 3 levels of sub menus. For instance, you can have one that looks like this:

Drawings
    -Ink
        -Landscape
        -Portrait
        -Still Life
    -Pencil
        -Landscape
        -Portrait
        -Still Life

But you can’t have further dropdown items with the superfish dropdown menus. Let me know if that makes sense.

Yes, thanks Andre!

Excellent theme – i love it!

Is there a way to enlarge the thumbnail size on the homepage and to enlarge the images of the sliders of each portfolio?

Also, is there a way to add more images to the sliders?

I have yet to purchase it yet – I am just curious if it is possible to do these things and if it is difficult or not. I do LOVE this theme and plan to buy if these things can be done.

Thank you.

2winFactor

Hi NDA ,

Most of this alteration is jquery, specifically a custom add-on function I created for the Masonry script. I can only point you to the files that control that functionality, and answer specific questions about how they work. I won’t be able to write any functions for you or debug your code, so it’s mostly up to you to make the alteration. Like I said though, I’m always here for questions if you have any about how the functionality of the existing theme works.

Andre

Default-user

Would you be able to point me to the lines that need to be altered to make the changes to make the thumbnails bigger (in the css and jquery)?

2winFactor

Hi Nd,

I would be able to point you to the function, but as far as individual lines and what to change – you’d need to consult the help of a developer. In order to change the size of thumbnails, it’s a somewhat complex alteration of the javascript code. Let me know if you need further clarification or have any other questions.

Andre

Hi 2winFactor

My foreign language is pre-intermediate, but i will try to explain my trouble :D I have a plan to get a wordpress site. So, i like your amazing theme to much. But i need to ask you a few questions before buy. 1) can I use your theme (main page design) like a dynamic blog (pet news, magazine etc.) not portfolio? Cause I should update my website may be 2-3 times in a week. must I delete older posts? Actually, I need to understand that: Could I see archive pages on your theme like standard blog sites? or should i delete the older posts on my web site? I saw “Blog” option on your them but i didnt like that. 2) if i cant use to “bookcase’s like a personal news blog, which design do you suggest to me? Thank you, sincerely.

2winFactor

Hi Crea,

Thanks so much for your interest!

I would just use the “portfolio” post-type for your blog posts. The only difference is internally (you can change it in the url structure to something else). In other words, the users wouldn’t know the difference. You’d just need to have an image for each post, or it won’t work. Also, the homepage automatically “paginates”, so you don’t need to delete older posts or anything of that nature. Older posts will “archive” to additional pages.

Let me know if you need further clarification,

Andre
