Hi Kriesi,

I guess I missed something here…

You are speaking about some fixed bugs in theme. Are there any updates of the theme here or on your support forum?

Do not integrate woocommerce :) if it will be not good for yoast seo.
Kriesi

Hey! The update is now available, simply by downloading the theme again from themeforest. files/folders that changed are listed in the versions.txt file ;)

Hey,

Before I go for it I need to know, can the media for the Portfolio items be a flash SWFs? Can you put an example on to see how it goes?

Kriesi

Sorry, swf files are not supported out of the box. You can embed iframes with a player if you want though…

Pre purchase question. Am I able to have a full size scalable background image instead of a pattern?

Kriesi

Yes, you can apply a fullscreen picture to the body bg if you need it and got the option to automatically cover the whole background area.

Hey Guys! The first Bugfix release is already available. Just re download the theme if you are encountering any strange IE behavior in your installation :)

Couple questions: Where to change the contact form (note says in “Admin” section, but I can’t find it anywhere).

And can I dupe the contact form to another page? I can’t see any “call out” code or anything on the contact page to pull the form, so I’m guessing it’s determined somewhere else?

Thanks

MJ

Kriesi

Hey! you should be able to edit your contact form in your admin section add Choices-> theme options -> Contact

In your loop-page.php you will notice the call for the contact form:
if(isset($post->ID) && $contact_page_id == $post->ID) get_template_part( 'includes/contact-form' );

you can of course try to include it anywhere else by using

get_template_part( ‘includes/contact-form’ );

but you might need to put an if statement around it so it doesnt get displayed everywhere :)

for example if you want to display it on a second page with the name “Hello my Friend” you could use:

if(is_page('hello-my-friend')) get_template_part( 'includes/contact-form' );

Hey, great theme! One question, though. Would it be possible to have a thumbnail in one portfolio link to a second portfolio?

Thanks!

Kriesi

I am not sure I do understand the question. Could you explain a what exactly you try to accomplish?

Default-user
maynardx Purchased

yes, sorry. what I meant was, is there any way I can get the portfolio item (the thumbnail showing in the portfolio) to link to an external link. I my case I want a portfolio on the homepage showing a few main product categories. And if you click on on the thumbnail for one of the main categories, I need it to take you to a second portfolio of products in the sub-category.

I hope that made it clearer. thanks again:)

Kriesi

Stil not sure if its that what you mean but you can set a portfolio to NOT use the ajax function. Then you can change the link target of each portfolio image in the slideshow manager for that portfolio entry :)

Hope this is what you meant :)

thanks for the answer, but no, that’s not quite what I meant;) I want the link target of the portfolio image to be an external link. so instead of using the ajax portfolio or to link to the portfolio entry, I want it to be able to link to whatever.

thanks again for your answer, kriesi:)

Kriesi

Yea the link target of the portfolio link can be set to whatever from your backend. You can choose it in the slideshow manager:

wait, that’s not what I meant either haha. sorry for being a pain in the ass, but I meant the link from the portfolio thumbnail. I want the thumbnail picture to link externally. realize that’s probably not possible from the backend, but figured there might be another way …

Kriesi

crap i stil dont get it ;D Which portfolio Thumbnail do you mean? The description I offered is for portfolio thumbnails on portfolio overview pages…

Default-user
maynardx Purchased

haha think I’m starting to confuse myself, too. but let’s try again, and this time with an image:) http://cl.ly/3A0g2H3Q2s1I3K0t3g0t I want that portfolio thumb to be able to have an external link, so when I click on it it will take to a link of my choice.

thanks again for your patience, kriesi.

Kriesi

So I got it right in the first place. exactly that link is set in the slideshow manager. You have to make sure that the AJAX functionality is disabled of course but other than that: change the link in your slideshow manager and it will be applied to the image

jesus, I am a donkey. I missed that part about disabling ajax. sorry, for that. should have read more carefully. but muchas gracias, kriesi, the theme is absolutely perfect, and your customer service is above and beyond. well done.

Kriesi

thanks! glad you like it :) Would of course appreciate a good rating to get rid of those 4 stars and get back to 5 ;D

Have fun with the theme!

Hi Kriesi, very very nice theme I have 1 questions:

1) I want to use a child-theme. I follow the standard procedure? I have to copy everything that’s in the style.css of “Choices”, then paste it in the style.css of the child-theme? Is there any special precautions that I must follow?

Thanks :)

Kriesi

Not really, should work as with every wordpress theme. make sure that the style.css header contains the “Template” info:

Great Theme !

Kriesi

Great Theme! BTW

I added woocommerce plugin to this them, ever page is style perfectly (my account, pay, checkout etc.. ) But the product page (shop) no style to it. Do you know why that is? I do have your other Theme Propulsion. They both kick ass. But I would really like to use this one if you have a quick solution. Thanks

Kriesi

Hey! Sorry but there is no quick solution to that :) Propulsion is Woo commerce optimized (therefore the much higher price) but this theme is not (at least yet) – We might add woocommerce support with a future update but for now you would need to style the woocommerce pages on your own :)

Sorry to disappoint you!

Just purchased.. Very nice theme. I may have overlooked this in the documentation and this may be a silly question, but how do you hide the blog post that is associated with the homepage Slider? I don’t want that post showing in my blog history. Thanks.

Kriesi

Hey! Not sure what exactly you mean? The Homepage can be set to a static page, then just add the slideshow to that page. You dont have to create an extra blog post for a slideshow…

Kriesi

Not out of the box but of course with some slight css modifications :)

I updated to the latest version, however I’m having an issue with the background. When I select upload a background – a field doesn’t show-up to allow me to upload an image. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Rick

Kriesi

Thansk, I will check that on my installation and see If I can reproduce it :)

Sorry, also, what is the custom CSS to change the Menu color and the top banner background color? Thanks, Rick

Kriesi

Hey! Not sure what you mean: you can modify those colors in the header tab (visible in your screenshot above)

I’m sorry – to clarify, is there a way to change the Main Nav colors (i.e. background, text color, rollover effect, etc).

Thanks!

Kriesi

you can of course use the styling tool of the theme in choices-styling. YOu can modify the values for the header are in there. if that doesnt work out for you, because you need more detailed control you can use the quick css panel bellow and add rules like:

#top #wrap_all .main_menu .menu ul li a{color:#333;}
#top #wrap_all .main_menu .menu ul li a:hover{background-color:#999;}

etc
