Congrats very nice theme! Very clean and cool visuals.

Any images/review of the back-end manager?

simonswiss

Thanks! I will upload a couple of screenshots of the theme settings and TVs tomorrow – need to spend some time with the family after those hard long last few days of work :)

simonswiss

I have now added 2 screenshots of the back end: theme options and template variables. You can see them in the item description.

Hope it helps!

Good luck!

Hi, thanks! :)

Hi, very nice theme! I’ve got a couple of questions:

Is the newsletter field setup with any of the MODX plugins, we use VirtuNewsletter and would be great if this theme works with the plugin http://modx.com/extras/package/virtunewsletter

Which gallery plugin have you used for the gallery images?

Thanks!

adamwintle

Thanks! Does the gallery use anything like MODX’s Gallery plugin on the back-end? http://modx.com/extras/package/gallery

simonswiss

The theme is actually using MIGX to set up image sliders (multiple image upload), and the gallery itself is pulled via getResources.

I didn’t use the gallery plugin because it didn’t really fit the needs of this theme.

I will add a list of the plugins used in the item description (under credits section), should be there in 5 minutes! :-)

simonswiss

Technically speaking – if you look at a gallery project like this one, the 3 images are entered via a template variable that uses MIGX to allow multiple file uploads in one TV.

Then each of these images is wrapped in bootstrap’s carousel slider markup so that no matter how many images you add, they will all fit in the slider and the navigation bullets are automatically generated below.

At this point, this is the only gallery layout (no grid gallery available) but this could be an option to add in the future. If sales go well, i am willing to listen to customer demand and add popular feature requests!

Great work :) GLWS simon.

simonswiss

Thanks mate :)

Nice one Simon. It’s great to see you working with ModX and adding Boom! was a great idea.

simonswiss

Thanks. It’s actually pretty exciting to turn a static template into a smart, customizable CMS theme.

Not just a pretty face anymore! :-)

Hello,

nice template and a great way for me to learn more about Modx, thank you for that!

2 questions: is it possible that the gallery has navigation arrows? Also is it possible that the hero part becomes a slider?

Thanks in advance.

Hello, is it possible that I create 2 split folders under resources. I’m having trouble with that. I have tried but the second one shows the same information as the first one.

Thanks in advance for your support.

no worry, I have fixed it :)

Glad you got it sorted :-)

Hello Simon!

Very nice theme! I’m thinking of buying it but want to point out two bugs and ask one or two questions!

Bugs

  1. The iframe video-wrapper shows a grey border on Safari (OSX) – I think it needs border: none; on .fluid-width-video-wrapper iframe?!
  2. The bullet nav-list (.carousel-indicators) in the single portfolio item needs a margin-fix for the mobile view

Questions/suggestions

  • the hover state of the isotope gallery items is unfortunately very inconvenient, when viewed on a mobile device (sometimes one launches the lightbox on tap, sometimes the “Show Details” link). Personally I would love, if single images and videos would be loaded in the light-box and projects would (on click/tap) always load the single portfolio page (without the hover-state) – what do you think? (If you don’t want to change that, maybe you could give a hint, where I could fix that in ModX.)
  • can the bootstrap goodies be used on the ajax loaded pages as well (like accordion and tabs?)?
  • would it be possible for me to make child resources and call them with a button – i.e. could your first “Learn more” button call a resource with Ajax like the gallery items do?

Thanks in advance!

another quick note on the single portfolio item with the slider:

  • the image has a border-radius on the two upper corners
  • there is title=”[+title]” in the code, is that not parsed because it’s left blank in the backend?
simonswiss

Should be about 2 -3 weeks before completion. Will check the mentioned points.

Thx!

I have just downloaded this but i’m using MODX 2.3, is this theme compatible?

simonswiss

Did you extend the upload memory in the MODX settings like described in the documentation?

If you give me your admin login via contact form I can have a look for you.

simonswiss

FYI I just tried to download my theme from TF and import it on a new 2.3 Revo install. Everything went smoothly except i had to manually download the ‘ClientConfig’ component. Let me know how you go on your end!

simonswiss

Hi again,

I have replied to your e-mail. It appears you are trying to import the main download zip file into MODX. You need to extract that zip and upload the theme file zip (booom-x.x.transport.zip) instead of the main file.

I can provide help with the installation if you get stuck.

Have a great weekend!

Hello there, I really like the template, but I would ask questions before you can buy it, is there any possibility to add comments to each gallery images, I mean when you press on “View Details”, comes the image and text , well i want to change it to a video posted on vimeo and down can leave comments. I await your response. Thank you very much.

Obviously I think it would have to hire a programmer.

CreandoLa

Thank you very much! It was perfect. But believe me it will :(, was modified and deleted a folder by mistake, I sent a message, sorry to bother you. Thanks.

simonswiss

hmmm i am afraid you’ll need to re-install the theme and start over again, some key files were deleted in there.. I can re-install a clean version of the theme for you if you want, but you will lose all the work you have done up to now..

simonswiss

I think it’s your lucky day! I was able to “recover the situation” without erasing any of your current work, so the site should now be working properly again in the back-end.

Dear Simon, do you have any news regarding the update mentioned above? Kind regards!

simonswiss

Hi – it’s still under development – you can take a look at the blog functionality here: http://demo.simonswiss.com/boomblog

I’d be glad to have your feedback on the implementation via e-mail -simon@simonswiss.com

I will polish it off by the end of this week and add as an update!

Thanks Simon, looking forward!
Will write you some lines later!
Cheers

simonswiss

Great – thanks! I’m happy to send you an early version if you want to test it out before i push the update on ThemeForest.

HI Simon

I cant seem to find the screenshot (configuration) that you have here where I can amended footer, colours. I am using MODX Rev 2.3.1. Also will this show me how to change the Hero background photo?

Thanks James

simonswiss

Hi James,

A few users have reported the “ClientConfig” package doesn’t get installed with the theme import. Luckily, you can do this manually by going to the Package Manager page and search for ‘ClientConfig’, download it and install it (more on this in the theme documentation provided with the download).

Once installed, you will have access to the Theme Options – and yes you can set the hero background image in there too.

This issue is fixed in the new updated version of the theme – i have also included a blog in the theme. However if you got this theme via the birthday bundle, you won’t be able to download updates as bundle only includes one-off, as is version of the theme at the time of the bundle.

Default-user

Thanks very much simon. I got there in the end as I am very new to this. One other thing that is probably really simple is how do I change the menu at the top. (ie features, split etc?

simonswiss

The menu at the top automatically shows the title of the sub-pages of the “Home” page, in the order they appear in the “resources tab”.

\\

You can rename the page title of these sub-resources to your convenience – but make sure you don’t change their ‘alias’ which is used to trigger the correct layout chunks.

If you want to hide a menu item from that navigation (example: newsletter), you need to ad its’ ID (the number in parenthesis in the resource list) to the wayfinder call, in the &excludeDocs parameter. You will find this in “elements -> chunks -> Navigation -> navigation”

\\

I have added a checkbox to show / hide menu items in navigation in a later update of the theme – but you cannot upgrade with the Birthday Bundle purchase – you will need an individual licence to get access to new releases.

Hope this helps!

Hi, I try to install with a cPanel add-on and manually the ModX and impossible to do it, have you anoter solution ?

simonswiss

Hello!

Not sure what you mean by the cpanel add-on. You mean one of these CMS one-click install scripts?

If you have trouble installing MODX, please have a look at the MODX documentation here: http://rtfm.modx.com/revolution/2.x/getting-started/installation

Hi,

There is some error about these Theme.

I am using using modx 2.3.1

Hi,

actually the bundle you purchased clearly mentioned that you would not get access to support / updates to the themes / templates included.

That said, if you look at the comments a bit higher in this page, you will see that i happily helped out a few users even if they are not supposed to get support. I like to help whenever i can.

The theme update i released has nothing to do with the error you mention. Again, i cannot reproduce the error.

Would you mind giving some clarifications about the issue via e-mail (contact form on my profile) and maybe send me access to your login / FTP so i can have a look at what’s going on for you?

Cheers,

Simon

You are right, thank you very much, i will update asap.

Thanks for your gently help

simonswiss

Thanks for contacting me by e-mail – it’s a bit easier to discuss and troubleshoot outside of the comments page here. Glad i could help.

If you have any other question, you know where to find me :)
