Hey again, your suggestion worked great! Another question I have is about column shortcodes on the site. I have an issue with some of my column shortcodes in that the last one will fall off to the next level. i.e “venue” on this page http://aaronsamuelspoetry.com/home/tour/

Is there a [4_12_last] I should be using or something to keep it within the confined space?

Code125

I suggest to use the shortcode [row_fluid] for each row to keep things in order as much as possible.

Hi!

Could show on a page only one category of portfolio?

I have created several categories in the portfolio but I want to display on a page in one category to another page other category. Is it possible?

Thx!!

Code125

Hi,

Yes It is possible, There is portfolio categories are created by default, you can find them in the menu section

Hi!,

Sorry but I can not find the section where you can choose the category to display on a page. If I select the shortcode mixed_portfolio, shows the entire portfolio, all categories.

If I do it through a page I can not select the category that I want to show. Never mind that the portfolios template you select, (mixed, 2, 3, 4, columns or circles), the page displays the entire portfolio without being able to select a particular category.

I do not know how to select only one category of portfolios. Can you help me?

Thx!

Sorry, but I’m a little slow.

I add a new page I choose a template: Portfolio page circle, for example.

So where do I choose the category of the portfolio?

Thx!

Hi Code125!,

I use the link you gave me to display a specific category of portfolio and when there are many articles showing the page number shown behind the images and you can not select or use. You can see it here:

http://www.conmasarte.es/c6ea/portfolio_cat/colaboradores/

Can I set the number of items displayed per page?

Can I remove the pagination completely?

Thx!

Your theme is among the best themes in Themeforest. However, it’s missing the ability of customizing the portfolio in a good way. It’s the biggest problem we’re having. We can NOT have a category under another.

For now the portfolio in your theme is like this

Portfolio Page: Category 1 – Category 2 – Category 3

It’d be great if we can have it this way.

Potfolio 1: Category 1: Category 1A – Category 1B – Category 1C

Potfolio 2: Category 2: Category 2A – Category 2B – Category 2C Potfolio 3: Category 3: Category 3A – Category 3B – Category 3C

We need to be able to make deferent categories in deferent pages. Not only having deferent categories in one portfolio.

The other thing is. When we upload more than 12 photos in a category you won’t find them in the same page when you chose that category from the category list.

more details here:

You upload 15 photos in Category 1 then, You upload 15 photos in Category 2

You won’t be able to see photos of Category 1 in the (first page), you have to click page 2 then you may find them. This is unacceptable when you work with portfolio that have more than 80 items in deferent categories. Visitor can get lost in seconds.

Please try to fix this problem as soon as you can because we want our websites looks perfect using your amazing theme.

Thanks again and keep it up ya ba6al,

P.S. It’d would be great if we can switch between Arabic and English website without moving from the main theme. Having lot of subdomians is difficult for visitors.

Code125

Thanks topShabab for your great words.

About the Portfolio ideas, Those are great but for having the filter to work on all the portfolio items wont make any animation as we will have to fetch and download requested data.

About the Arabic/English Website, try WPML Plugin it is great solution for your situation

Is there any way that we can solve the portfolio problem, we don’t need the animation feature in the portfolio. We are ready to pay extra money to get such feature.

From your experience. Does WPML support Arabic?!

Thanks in advance,

Code125

Okay Please Contact me through my email to discuss this feature.

About the WPML, Yes it supports Arabic I know some customers who used it and it is working fine

After installing Carmen and trying to import the “demo.XML” file, I received many error messages or I was informed that the function is already installed.

Hi Mostafa,

Before purchasing I am still trying to settle a few things first:

1) Do you know when the issue of the vast empty space on the left in your Arabic demo going to be dealt with? I think I will hold off on buying the theme until that issue has been addressed. 2) Looking at your sample live page, is it possible to remove the container and leave both the content area and the background a continuous white space?

Thanks for your response.

Code125

Hi Majd,

Thanks for contacting me

1-This issue has been solved, please see the comments before you and you will see the solution.

2-If you want to make the background white and remove the box shadow, it is couple of css fixes and should be very easy.

Hi Mostafa,

Thanks for the quick response. The issue seems to persist here: http://carmen-ar.code125.net/company-layout/

Hi Mostafa,

Any updates on my last question? ^ 1) The big empty space to the left of this page is still there: http://carmen-ar.code125.net/company-layout/ 2) The color changing widget does not seem to function correctly. When I click the “Change” button nothing happens. This makes it a little difficult to preview what my website would look like :S 3) Does the Carmen theme offer a way for us to easily write our pages’ own meta descriptions that would appear on Google? 4) Is there a particular reason you don’t include the search box on the homepage? Isn’t that the most important place to have it?

Sorry about all the questions and thanks in advance :)

Majd

Code125

Dear Majd, Sorry for late reply

1-It is fixed now “very small fix” 2-You should choose the color and click on the small palette on the bottom right of the color picker then press the change button. 3-Yes you can write each meta description for each page you have in the theme. 4-ummm, I didn’t find a proper place to put the search button, but it is included in every other page

Sorry again for late reply and thanks for understanding

Default-user

Hi Mostafa,

Thanks again for your reply, and for making the necessary fixes. It’s perfect. Quick last question: is there a designated space for ads? Or will I have to manually place the code where appropriate?

Thanks again :)
