Hey, great theme!

I’m having issues with SVG’s and uploading them. Specifically the logo at the moment. I’ve uploaded it using the insert media, the file uploads but it does’t display anything.

Can you help me?

Hi Flow, I can’t seem to find any place in the menus section to change icons.

In the Widgets section although I see the location of the current social icons, I don’t understand how to add a new one. Where do I create a new class for instagram?

Flow

In [Appearance > Menus] each item has “CSS Classes” field. If they don’t, please click on “Screen options” in the top right corner and you’ll be able to enable that option there. The documentation lists available classes that you can paste there.

You can create any footer layout in [Daisho > General] and in [Appearance > Widgets] you can fill each footer’s column with widgets. Please find “Footer 3” widget area and in the text widget inside you can add <a class="fa fa-instagram" href="http://example.com/"></a> among other links.

Thanks, that did the trick!

Is the theme compatible with the latest wp version? Can i include videos in the portfolio ormix togheder videos and images… or when click on the image to oppen video in lightbox (popu window)?

Thanks!

Flow

Yes, it’s compatible with the newest WordPress.

The thumbnails can’t contain videos (and it’s not recommended to have them there) but projects can have any media, just like normal pages or posts.

Hi, great looking theme. Is there a way to keep the posts static in the grid view (like a sticky?). I’d like to keep the same information in each grid and change them at my will. is that possible?

Thanks!

Flow

Please try #6319 but by default sticky thumbnails are not enabled.

Instead of having a sticky thumbnail you can also set its publication date to be newer than of any other thumbnail and you can include its category in multiple portfolio pages. It’ll always show up as the first item.

Really nice theme!!! One of the best porfolio themes. I want to ask youm whats the typography of the Daisho logo?

Flow

Thank you! I think the logo uses some standard font (it was probably Arial, Open Sans or Novecentowide) and the individual letters have been slightly modified to create that logo.

Hi,

Thanks for a great theme! I have two questions:

1. Do you have a suggestion on how to implement a news slider like the one on this page http://bathfestivals.org.uk/ beside the portfolio boxes on the front page? 2. Is it possible to get the meny to “stick” while you scroll down in this theme?

Thanks in advance.

Flow

1. I think that the newest Daisho version allows static content to be inserted on portfolio pages but I think it’s only above the thumbnails. You could use [ns-isotope] shortcode on a standard page template. Please use it with the newest development version of the theme.

2. There is no such option in the admin panel but you could use plugins or inserting the the following code at the bottom of /js/functions.js would be the first step to the solution that shows the theme’s compact header after you scroll the screen a little bit:

( function( $ ) {

    'use strict';

    $(document).ready(function(){
        $(window).scroll(function() {    
            var scroll = $(window).scrollTop();

            if (scroll >= 300) {
                $("body").addClass("compact-header");
            } else {
                $("body").removeClass("compact-header");
            }
        });
    });

} )( jQuery );

You’d also have to create a copy of compact-header CSS class in style.css that would not hide the original header (because there’s a slight jump of the content because of that). Please create a support ticket if you need the full code.

Hi! Below is a quote from your answer to a question on your support forum regarding the removal of the WYSIWIG editor:

2) You still have WYSIWYG editor. And it’s better than before. Please switch the standard editor to “Visual” mode. It reflects how the post will look like more precisely than the previous editor and more importantly you’re now not limited in any way as to what media can you use there. Previously you could use images and videos, now you can edit this like any other page. You can even create more complex layouts with Visual Composer that is included with the theme.

We have the same issues, and the features described in your answer do not appear for us anymore than the original poster. We built our site back in 2013, and now, after upgrading, cannot edit our portfolios and have no controls.

Thanks for your help!

Default-user

Thanks for the reply! But we still have the issue of only being able to see one image in our previous portfolios.

Flow

I’d have to take a look at it to see what happened. Please create a support ticket. Please make sure to update your profile information with your WordPress login and password.

When updating from some 1.x version to the newest version you should start seeing [slide image="" other_options=""] shortcodes in the content area. One for each image. They should still work.

Default-user

Thanks! Creating ticket now.

Hello! I’d like to add a SEARCH area to the portfolio page of my Daisho site. How can I do that please??

Flow

There is no need to have search results include portfolio projects or pages because they are all visible on the homepage of the demo website.

The only place that may actually have something to search for is the blog page. The search box is available there then.

If you will have multiple portfolio pages then still the search box is unlikely to be necessary. How many visitors will really use that? Probably very few and most will prefer to simply open the second portfolio page.

For about 99% of Daisho users the search box is a completely redundant element.

You can customize post types that searching works in in /core/search.php.

You can load the search box either using plugins (I think that even Visual Composer which is included has such element) or using get_search_form() in project-loop.php (which is loaded by template-portfolio.php).

I’d also like to know: can I have 2 or possibly 3 separate Portfolios all hosted on 1 Daisho site?

Flow

Yes.

Hey great template, I’m changing the numbers of logos on widget footer 1 from 5 to 4, how do space them out evenly? At the moment they all sit right next to one-another on the left side.

Regards

Flow
Flow Author

Please follow http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#footer and paste .site-footer .footer-client-logos img { width: 25%; } in [Daisho > Styling > Custom CSS Code].

Images appear one below another by default and we added a short piece of code to change that in style.css. It’s set to 20% by default.

fridayshoes

Thanks, but I think you misunderstood my request.

I created a child theme and changed this

.site-footer .footer-client-logos img { width: 20%; max-width: 220px; float: left; }

to this

.site-footer .footer-client-logos img { width: 20%; max-width: 220px; float: left; margin-left: 3%; margin-right: 2%; }
Flow
Flow Author

If you changed the width to 25% and max-width (which I omitted by mistake) to about 280px or slightly less instead you’d have to upload larger images. Adding left and right margin or padding is also an option.

Hey, I’m trying to disable comments on pages and blog posts.

I’ve been in settings>discussion and unchecked ‘Allow people to post comments on new articles’

I’ve also been into the example blog posts screen options and unchecked ‘post options’ and ‘comments’

However the comments box is still visible on the blog posts, is there somewhere else I should be looking?

Regards

fridayshoes

I’ve done all that and I still see the comments box on the blog, do you know if the settings affect child and parent themes or do they have to be set for each theme?

fridayshoes

Ah solved it, for some reason turning off the check-boxes on each post under the EDIT option doesn’t work. But if you turn off the check boxes under the QUICK EDIT option for each post it removes the comments boxes.

Flow
Flow Author

It doesn’t matter what theme is currently active. Most (like 99%) have the same mechanism. This setting is one of the WordPress settings and it’s not specific to any theme.

These checkboxes should work in both places. After each change you need to hit the blue “Update” button to save the new settings.

I have set the portfolio as my homepage, but I want ‘New Blog Posts’ to appear below the portfolio gallery (I entered [recent_posts] into the portfolio page editor but it makes it appear above the portfolio gallery)

Any ideas how to make it appear last?

Flow
Flow Author

Please make sure that you’re using version 2.2 of the theme. It should work normally.

fridayshoes

Thanks, yes the update works thanks, although the 3rd shuffle button has disappeared?

Flow
Flow Author

It doesn’t have any useful function for your visitors. It shouldn’t be in the portfolio template either. It’s a redundant element.

Hi Does theme work with WP 4.2 and will you update Visual Composer?

Flow
Flow Author

It works with WordPress 4.2.

Daisho 2.2 with updated Visual Composer will appear shortly. It’s already uploaded to ThemeForest and it’s awaiting review.

Cant see a Changelog anywhere – most authors post changes on the items product page ;) looked on Forum, in the new files and cant see it.

thanks :)

Flow
Flow Author

An overview changelog is available in http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-changelog but the truth is that over 20 things were changed. Most are not mentioned because these were minor updates.

Hey, what’s the best way to remove individual page titles?

Regards

fridayshoes

Actually I want to remove the page header from individual pages.Would it be in the custom fields section on each page?

Flow
Flow Author
https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/body_class

In [Daisho > Styling > Custom CSS Code] you can use:

.page-id-1234 .page-header {
    display: none;
}

which will hide the header on the page with an ID of 1234.

To get rid of it from the source code you can modify page.php and use https://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags in a child theme.

fridayshoes

Great that works. Thanks

Hi, I’m trying to insert some flickr galleries into the portfolio pages using this plugin

https://wordpress.org/plugins/flickr-justified-gallery/

I’m quite certain I’ve added all the needed details to the plugin and I’ve added the gallery shortcode to a test portfolio page but nothing appears on the front end. Could the template possibly be blocking the shortcode or plugin?

Regards

fridayshoes

Okay I removed all of the above for the moment and did some more investigating, which reveals the following:

Test 1.

I have a page using the default template set as my frontpage, and I have [ns-isotope] and [recent_posts] on that page. If I open a portfolio item in the frontend only the header shows, no content.

Test 2.

If I re-add the original portfolio module to the website and select a portfolio item on the frontend then the header and the content (including flickr gallery) shows no problem.

Why is content not showing in Test 1?

Flow
Flow Author

The instructions below assume that you haven’t modified the theme files.

You can create a page with [ns-isotope] and [recent_posts] shortcodes in [Pages > Add New].

For each project you can select which page will be visible beneath it in [Portfolio > (any project) > Parent portfolio]. You should also set the default portfolio page in [Daisho > General].

It’s possible to have a page without the portfolio template beneath a project. So, in “Parent portfolio” you can select your page with the default template. It’ll display its content.

To stop seeing what’s beneath a project you can alternatively also increase the opacity of the project background from 0.97 to 1 by pasting the following in [Daisho > Styling > Custom CSS Code]:

.project-coverslide-visible {
    opacity: 1;
}
fridayshoes

Ah cool thanks, this part fixed it for me (I still had it set for the original portfolio)

For each project you can select which page will be visible beneath it in [Portfolio > (any project) > Parent portfolio]. You should also set the default portfolio page in [Daisho > General].

Cheers

Okay next issue I’ve noticed. On mobile if I select a portfolio item the portfolio grid doesn’t disappear and the content appears below the grid.

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, that’s a bug. [ns-isotope] shortcode is new. It’s been added in the previous theme version and I didn’t notice this until now.

To fix this please paste the following in [Daisho > Styling > Custom CSS Code]:

.daisho-portfolio-viewing-project .site-content {
    display: none;
}

This fix will appear in Daisho v2.3.

Cool, works great, look forward to the next update

Hey Flow, Lovely theme! Just a quick question. When I add and switch the theme to the child theme, the menu goes away. It doesn’t pick up and the
    that follows. Are you aware of this? Any ideas how to fix this?

Learnt something new! One more question, does Visual Composer not work with portfolio items?

Flow
Flow Author

It works but some of its components may not work if they use JavaScript. Most JavaScript scripts will be initialized only once when you enter the page. Opening a portfolio item inserts HTML elements onto the page dynamically and JavaScript scripts will not be handling that without initialization.

You’ll have to enable page reloads to make everything work. Portfolio will not be different from normal pages and posts if you do that.

If you wanted to keep page reloads disabled you’d have to initialize everything manually in /js/portfolio.js. There is no way to automatically initialize these scripts. That’s a drawback of loading content with AJAX or in some other dynamic way.

That’s what I suspected! Thanks for confirming and being on the ball with your replies; makes a real difference from other authors on this site!

Hi Flow, I have downloaded the update of Daisho, could you please explain the steps in order to update without create a mess with my website ? thank you !

Flow
Flow Author

That depends on from which version are you updating. If from 2.x to 2.3 then probably you won’t have to update anything else. If you’re updating from some very old versions (most 1.x versions) then please have a look at the updating guide.

Default-user

yeah it almost works, but slide management is not here anymore ?why ?

Flow
Flow Author

It’s been there from June 2012 to January 2013. In January 2013 WordPress introduced its new media library which has all the functionality that the slide management tool had (drag and drop upload, reordering, video and embeds insertion, captions etc.) and if SuperSlide editor remained there it would only limit you. With native media library you can insert more things. You can also use Visual Composer which is included or other plugins and create more complex layouts now.

Hi, just a quick pre-purchase question since I wasn’t able to find an answer in the documentation or the plugin list. I would like to add before/after images to some of my projects, preferably with a slider. Does this theme support any such thing natively or can you recommend a suitable plugin? Thanks in advance. Looking forward to using this theme.

Flow
Flow Author
I haven’t tried any plugin like that but there a few in the repository:

These plugins will work with any theme. In case of Daisho they’ll work on pages and posts but if you’d like them to work in portfolio projects you’ll have to enable page reloads there.

Default-user

Thanks Flow! That sells it for me.

Hi there,

Wonderful theme! Just wondering if it would be possible to ad a Behance icon to the footer alongside the LinkedIn, Facebook…etc..?

And if so, how would I go about this?

Thank you,

Sam
