hey there. After buying this theme a few months back, I’m about to start building. Just wondering wether you might have a users gallery to get some ideas of how people are using the theme?

cheers.

Hey,

Unfortunately we don’t have such a gallery. We have seen a few since it has been on sale but more then to resemble the template’s current look just with minor changes.

Cheers – I guess with a theme this simple in design concept (which is always a good thing) there’s little need for massive customisation. Should be a reflection on your excellent work to date.

I was asking specifically as the menu is a little restrictive in its concept – I wouldn’t mind seeing how others have tackled this – buts that ok – I can work around for now.

One question – the blog posts… Are they supposed to automatically update under the blog_main.html page? – As they would under WP, or do they need to be manually inserted? I tried just renaming a new post to test and upload, and no cigar.

I read through the notes on this, and didn’t spot anything on this. Apologies if I have missed something.

Cheers,

Corey.

Hi,

Yes you will have to do that stuff manually. This is the way it works with all HTML /CSS site templates. A CMS /Admin back end would be required for automated functionality like that.

Cheers DOK . Might give that a miss then ;) Another reason that WP would be stellar when you guys get to it. I’m sure it will be a stellar theme.

Hi – I’m loving this theme and purchased it a while ago but I’m having major problems with Chrome. The theme works great in FF, IE and Opera but hangs Chrome. Is it something to do with the home page gallery?

Chrome won’t open the home page and you have to close the tab.

Any ideas?

Bob.

Re: CHROME problem

Yes it’s something to do with that home page gallery/slideshow. I can open the other pages in Chrome but the broswer hangs if you try to open the home page.

Every other browser seems to be OK but Chrome just breaks.

Hi Robby,

All is working normally here on chrome. Have you tried our online preview in chrome to see if that works?

We will need to see your page, but don’t post a link here in the comments. Instead head on over to our support forum and post a link there to your site so we can take a look.

pixelentity

Hey,

Hi I am just about to purchase this template, is there a basic editor or will I need to edit it in dreamweaver or a similar program?

And if you do have a basic editor do you have video tutorials?

pixelentity

Hi,

To insert your own content in to this template, or any template bought here, you will need to have at lease a basic understand of how to edit HTML and you will need to make your edits using a basic code editor such as Notepad++ or similar.

Great template . how easy would it be to integrate your flare plugin with this template?

pixelentity

Thanks

Flare requires a reponsive template to give its best on mobile devices while brandspace is not.

Nooooooo!!!!!!!! I’ve just seen the error of my ways!!! absolutely gutted and am in serious trouble as have used psds and designed around template to visualise to a client how there site could look and they have signed this off!!! I know very very basic html and no CSS so am now going to struggle with getting this to work, plus I wanted my client to update herself and be able to contol her own content!! I’m in a bad place with this project and need some help, I have noticed lots of other users saying about a convert to wordpress and there seems like huge amount of interest in this! What sorts of costs would this involve as I’m sure that we could round up a few of us to pay for customisation? I really really like the template, hence buying it and really want to be able to work with it in WP and it seems I’m not the only one! Please could you consider making this template fit WP as would make us very happy people and may beable to earn a little extra out of it?

Ginge.

Hi, Yes Brandspace is not a WordPress theme but a static HTML template. It has been a long time since it was developed and since then, theme standards on TF have progressed a lot, for example, responsive design is now standard on all WP themes. Brandspace was not designed to be responsive. Because of these type of reasons we have decided not to create a WP version of this design.

Ok, I totally understand your reasons, what would the cost be for you to convert the template to WP for me and to treat as a private commission? I really dont want to give up on this design and just want to get a better idea of what cost would be involved?

Sorry but, right now, our schedule is too full and we’re not able to take any freelance work

i like this theme and i want to know if i can make http://www.videoguide.ro/ something like this with this theme, not changing to much because i dont know :)

pixelentity

Hi,

That would require lots of modification and an advanced knowledge of HTML & CSS .

Just checking: Can this theme be used with Wordpress. If not, how much coding experience is required to use this template?

I really need a them like Brandspace or Influx for use in WP. I dare say I could learn HTML but I am worried about how long it will take me to be fully competent.

Any advice would be great!

pixelentity

Hi,

This is HTML template only and not a WordPress Theme. All such templates require some knowledge of html/css to work with them, the amount of knowledge required depends on what you wish to do with the template. For example if you just wanted to swap the images with your own and insert you own text, then you need very little knowlegde of HTML /CSS.

Hey great theme! Quick question I am trying to switch out the videos in the home slider and when I preview in browser and test it, then click the play button nothing happens even though the link is correct in the html. The only videos that work are the ones that came with the theme. It’s simple html to know how to switch out the links and the image in the slider but do I need to adjust something in the js to make this work? Thanks!

Greetings Pixelenity! Brandspace and influx are both stellar themes! I purchased both as the minimalist approach is what is needed for the kinds of content-focussed work i do.

I have one question though: The brandspace template is my absolute favourite template. I have purchased 40 themes for use in our web creation service. The brandspace template is one that i want to use for my business as the ‘website-above-all-websites’.

The question concerns mobile viwing of the site. I have tried visiting the brandspace template via my blackberry (they usually have tiny screens:( ) and my android phone (works and looks much better)

The question- is it possible to turn brandspace into a responsive theme? Im asking as it seems that many people in South Africa (where i’m from) view and visit websites from their mobile devices. (blackberries are in a larger circulation than PC’s!) and i want these potential customers to view the site more comfortably.

If you have already made inroads into responsive design for either influx or Brandspace, allow me to view them and modify the theme accordingly.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your compliments, we’re glad you like our work. In general retrofitting responsiveness to a template is almost like starting from scratch and building the template all over again. This is quite an investment of time and we had decided that such an investment was unlikely to make a sufficient return here on Themeforest and so we decided we would not be making a responsiveness version. Unfortunately the same goes for the influx template.

How do we get the search bar to work? I didnt see a reference to that in the help file. Thanks!

pixelentity

Hi,

Search and other dynamic functions require a Content Management System (CMS) before they would work. This template is a static HTML /CSS template. If you would like to have search function and other such database driven function in your website, I would recommend that you try using WordPress or another type of CMS .

Hey quick ?... The slider on the homepage… If I want to change the transition to slide right to left how would I do so? I’m not sure if I like the panning.

Hi, disregard my last email. All it needed was a fresh pair of eyes. I LOVE this website, its going to look really great when all my stuff is added. Nice clean design and I have no problems editing and viewing this template. I went back to html when wordpress failed for me.

pixelentity

Thanks for your nice comment, appreciated

Hey can we change the transition on the slider or no? The panning is not my favorite option and I’m not a jQuery programmer. Even if you cannot help me I’d appreciate some type of answer… thanks.

pixelentity

Hi,

Yes, just remove the following attribute from the slider and the transition will change to a swipe more:

 data-animate="true" 

If you have any other questions, please head on over to our Support Forums, someone will answer your questions asap.

Hey…. i looked in slider.js and didnt find that line of code anywhere… Am i looking in the correct file? Thanks!
