Hi Ed, I found a little bug which is driving me crazy. Let’s say I upload the images for the Portfolio thumbnail gallery – setup as a Slider.Then I scroll down to upload/select the Portfolio detail gallery images – setup as a gallery. The “select files” opens a browse window to upload new files, instead of being able to select already uploaded images to the wp media folder. This means, that I have to upload the images twice – one for the portfolio thumbs slider and a second set of images for the portfolio detail page.

Should’t the the “Select Files” button open up the wordpress dialog box to select images already uploaded to the wp media?

SwiftIdeas

That’s a very good point, thanks for the feedback. We’ll add the ability to choose between a slider/gallery for the detail type if you want to use the thumbnail content, into the next update.

Hi SwiftIdeas,

Thanks for the lovely theme. Works perfect for my portfolio site but I think I have some bugs or I did something wrong. I hope you guys have the solution and it is clear what I’m writing. It is a big story but hope you will take time to read it.

Here I go. When surfing to my website it opens with the portfolio which is perfect. It opens with 16 items and if I want to see all of my work I click on the + icon. Also good. The only thing is when I’m on my homepage and don’t click on the + icon and go directly to a category (with filter option) such as print it doesn’t show all my items in that category but only 3 of them. I have 8 items in that category so at least you think that the will show up all of them judging by the homepage which shows by default 16 items. Now it is not clear for my customers that there are more items in the category print than those 3 images which show up by default. This is also happening for the other categories. The problem can only be solved by clicking on the + sign on the homepage and than filter on print or another category. But that’s not obvious of course.

Second thing is a bug which appears on my iPad (latest model). If I go to my homepage and click on the + sign all the items will show up. Perfect I thought but the items that will popup are not clickable. Hmm, what happen here. Is this a thing from my New iPad? I browse with the Safari browser on IOS6 .

Ok. All of this can be solved by setting, at the portfolio page, the 16 items to for example 30. Now when surfing to my website on my Mac it doesn’t show the + sign which is correct because I have 28 portfolio items. Only thing, I like the + sign option. It is a very neat solution for not showing all items at once, especially the older ones, but ok if this is the only option that works I can live with that. But now we have the following situation, the loading times. On my Mac they are ok, but on my iPad which is also very important for the Industry where my customers come from are not acceptable. WiFi works but is slow for building up 28 items. My iPhone 4 with WiFi and 3G keeps loading those 28 items and after a while it unexpectedly quits the safari browser.

Hope you can help because the theme looks great and especially the compatibility with iPhone and iPad are things where I bought this theme for.

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards, Jeff

SwiftIdeas

Hi Jeff,

That is the standard functionality. Unfortunately loading extra items is something that we didn’t want to do, to avoid making the filtering system something that the user would need to wait for. We decided to go with the load more functionality instead of that, and feel that the way we have it now is much better for performance and ease of use.

Please can you log a support ticket at http://support.swiftpsd.com for the iPad issue, and hopefully we can fix that for you.

The loading issue is something that will always be something that holds back media rich sites due to the sheer amount of data that needs to be downloaded, with slow connection speeds on devices. I would recommend using caching and minify plugins to hopefully improve the speed and decrease the memory required from the site (should help the crashing).

Hope that helps!

Just tested if you can click the items that have been loaded in via AJAX on our iPad and it works fine for us. Log a support ticket with a link to your site and we’ll give it a look though.

Hi there, love the theme. I was wondering if it would be possible to implement a random post order on the template. Basically, what I want is for the blog and portfolio section to load a different order of posts every time someone clicks on it. Is there any way this could be done? Cheers in advance

SwiftIdeas

Hi there!

In the /includes/sf-functions.php try adding the following to the query arguments:

orderby => 'rand'

The query arguments can be found on lines 197 & 354.

Hope that helps.

Great theme, love it! Know im being a newbi (very new to WP), tried to instal the demo content so i could see how to edit the content and learn on the way. Not going to plan at all.

Uploaded the XML using Tools>import>selecting the XML and ticking “Download and import file attachments” and get a lot of Failed to import Media “CNV00009’ messages. Also pasted the text file to the box provided within Theme Options, under the Backup sub-menu. Any idea what im doing wrong?

With this done, still cant get the site to view like the example on Themeforest. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Matthew,

It seems like the images have loaded fine? You will still need to go to Settings > Reading to set the home page, and go into Appearance > Menus to set the menu.

Hope that helps :)

Your inputs worked great, thanks, Ed!

One quick question though. I want thsi page http://fernida.com/?portfolio=test To look exactly like this one : http://themes.swiftpsd.com/clique/?portfolio=sazzi

How do I setup my page in wordpress in order to do this ? In my page, the image doesn’t expand to a max size when I increase the browser window and the text will not align on the right, can you give me a hand on this ? :) I think you already have my credentials in the ticket I opened 48 hours ago Thanks for your precious help

SwiftIdeas

Hi dueville,

All you need to do is set the options in the portfolio item meta (below the content editor on the edit item page). There is an option to set the detail media type as “gallery” and then to upload images below that. You will also want to uncheck the “Full width” option so that the images and text appear side-by-side.

Hope that helps :)

Hi Ed,

I’ve a question regarding the color of the close button when a portfolio opens.

I would like the cross white surrounded by blue circle. I modify the css like this in the theme options :

ajax-close {

position: fixed; top: 17px; right: 17px; text-decoration: none; color: white; background: #008FC1; border-radius: 25px; z-index: 99; font-size: 16px; line-height: 16px; padding: 6px 8px 4px; display: none; }

but nothing change on the website. Do you have an idea of my dismiss ? Thx for your help.

Is there any possibility to use custom fonts from Typekit?

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

I don’t see why not, although I haven’t tested it. Happy to assist if you come across any issues :)

Great job :) Have you provided an HTML version ?

SwiftIdeas

Thanks :)

This is just the WordPress version.

Hi! I’ve purchased the theme and it’s unbelievable! Quick question – can I set the embedded google map to sattelite view by default? is there a way to set up the zoom level?

Another question – where can I find information on how to add language versions to my web site?

SwiftIdeas

Hi there, glad you like it! :)

Sure, you can edit the settings here: /js/functions.js.php (line 656)

        var settings = {
            zoom: 15,
            center: latlng,
            mapTypeControl: true,
            mapTypeControlOptions: {style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.DROPDOWN_MENU},
            navigationControl: true,
            navigationControlOptions: {style: google.maps.NavigationControlStyle.SMALL},
            mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
        }

As per these settings – http://www.svennerberg.com/2009/06/google-maps-api-3-map-settings/

As for the language versions, you will need to add po files in the /language folder, you can find out more info here – http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

Hope that helps!

Hi Ed,

A little question for you. Is it possible to add comment on the portfolio item ?

I add the following code on single-portfolio.php :
     <div id="comment-area">
          <?php comments_template('', true); ?>
     </div>
It display the number of comment (0 comment) but the comment form don’t appear.

How can I display the comment form ?

Thank’s for your help :)

SwiftIdeas

Add that code, then make sure you have the comments enabled in the item. That should work, although I haven’t tried it.

- Ed

Thank’s for your answer Ed ! ;-)

In the settings, comments are enabled. But I don’t find where enabled comment for a specific portfolio item, it works for an article or a page but I don’t know where is it for portfolio item.

There’s no “Discussion box” in the Screen Options for the portfolio item.

SwiftIdeas

In /includes/custom-post-type/portfolio-type.php, try changing line 49 to:

'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'thumbnail', 'comments'),

- Ed

It works! :) Thank you Ed, great support! :sunglasses:

Hi Ed,

Great theme but a question that could be to do with my limited wordpress experience.

When I upload team member images, they then don’t display on my team members page on the front end. In the back end though I can see that they’re set as the image for the team member. I’ve looked in both safari and chrome and I’m not seeing the images display in either.

Thanks Rich

SwiftIdeas

Hi Rich,

Did you edit the demo content? Try creating a new team member.

Hi Ed… I love the theme I have 2 questions…

1 the logo on my site moves the menu awkwardly towards the top of the page when my site is viewed horizontally, my logo is kind of big.. I wonder is there a way the menu can stay at the bottom of the header???

2 when viewed on mobile device I can’t see the subtext show over the features images in my portfolio can that be changed?

My site www.iGoodFella.com

SwiftIdeas

1. You can use the following css to manually move the menu:

.nav-wrap { margin-top: 20px; }

2. Sorry, do you mean the hover overlay?

Well done theme!

Do you consider… - bringing pagination navigation as option for load more ? - having a boxed layout option with custom background ?

Does the theme have… - custom css - multi language support/ ready to translate files? - function to load as many photos or video in portfolio post – with gallery view – as one want? - a search function?

Thanks in advance,

OhC

SwiftIdeas

Hi Ohc,

We probably won’t bring pagination, as we think the load more is nice and simple as it is. The boxed layout option wouldn’t really work with the design, so we probably won’t bring something like that into the theme.

Custom CSS – Yes. Ready to translate files – Yes. You can load as many photos, but only 1 video per item. Search function – Yes.

- Ed

One question: I’ve got about 700+ images I’d like to upload to WP and create a gallery. Will these just automatically all display in the masonry layout that I see on the “gallery” pages in the demo or do I have to create a post with each photo?

Thanks!

SwiftIdeas

Hi there,

You upload them all directly to the page, so batch upload is easy :) .. I’ll need to tell you how to increase the upload limit so let me know if you buy.
