Hi

I want to have the main portfolio item in the grid as a playable Vimeo video. How do I do this? I’ve added the vimeo code to the portfolio page but it doesn’t embed in the grid.

Thanks

Alistair

There used to be support for videos on the grid tiles as an experimental feature for a couple of versions a year ago but it’s been removed because it didn’t work well on touch devices and some mobile phones. We were replacing videos with images for such devices but it still caused various problems.

It’s recommended that you use GIF or SVG animations instead.

Remove compact header on Portfolio

Hi – I have managed to remove the compact header in blog posts, but I haven’t been able to locate the bit of code to tweak to remove it from Portfolio pages. Could you point me in the right direction for that?

Thanks

I don’t have this issue for some reason but I added another line of code that fixes it in the same #6293 ticket.

Thanks for that.

Sorry but one more bug has been noticed: on the homepage you will see that the Donate with Just Giving button in the footer is active – it links.

But go into the protfolio section – http://wishingwellmusic.org.uk/portfolio/film/- and suddenly it loses its link.

Please add the following to your custom styles as well: .site-footer { position: relative; }

Hi Flow, I have a questions I would like you to answer

The web would have a large portfolio and I would like it to have a “Load More” option so it doesn’t show all the items at first glance. Is this possible on this theme?

Thanks

In Daisho v2.0 you could use #5785 but I’m not sure if it works in current v2.1 as well since Isotope library has been updated. If it doesn’t then perhaps only minor adjustments will be necessary to the code.

Great theme, my website http://hakprodesigns.com/ is up and running. Thank you Flow.

Can I attributed category to the coverslide (for example if I click a category and then a project, I’d like to scroll only projects that category) is it possible?

Thanks

[Pages > (any portfolio page) > Browse projects in selected category] should be what you’re looking for.

There’s also an option to hide the left arrow on the very first and the right arrow on the very last project with “Boundary arrows” option and you’ll find related “Project View – hide arrows for all or specific projects” in the FAQ.

Hello… can’t find in the documentation how to activate Languages… am I missing something?

The answer to your question depends on what you’d like to achieve. If you’d like to translate English words to other English words or to words from some other language you can do that with PO/MO files like described in #6574.

This mechanism works the same way in all themes and plugins.

If you’d like to have language switcher and multiple languages on one website then you’ll need a plugin to achieve that because WordPress doesn’t have such feature. This theme is compatible with WPML plugin but since it’s based on the framework from the newest default theme it’s likely to be compatible will all other plugins for translations too. I tested only WPML though and I added language switcher for WPML. It’ll appear only when WPML is active.

Translation with WPML works the same way in all themes and plugins and therefore you’ll need to check either the WordPress’s guide for translating themes or WPML guide. Links to both are present in the forum thread mentioned above.

Hello, I just had a question regarding the filter menu (all works, identity, motion etc.) can that section be removed if needed?

Flow

Yes, it can. There is no option for that in the admin panel but you can follow “Portfolio Filter – hide categories filter” from #3027.

Thank you!

Hello, I have a pre-purchase question,

First, I’d like to congratulate you on such a great theme.

My question is about wheter I’ll be able to tailor this theme with no knowledge of PHP, HTML, etc. I’ve seen that, to do almost anything, it’s needed to insert codes.

Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you, I’m glad that you like the theme.

It depends on what is your desired end result. To answer your question I’d need to see some mockup of how your website is supposed to look like in the end or a description of desired changes.

The theme is based on the newest 2014 framework that the default WordPress theme uses. Similarly, to the default theme it only comes with frequently used options in the admin panel.

There are hundreds of other customization possibilities and instead of making hundreds of options in the admin panel which would slow down the website I put frequently asked ones in the FAQ.

You’ll need some basic knowledge about child themes and HTML/CSS but it’s nothing more than understanding what each one is and some basics about their syntax.

As a website owner you need basic HTML knowledge about p, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, b, strong, em, i, a, ol, ul, li etc. tags anyway to write correct blog posts and pages. Without that knowledge articles you create are likely to be not consistent in their structure and it may impact search engine ranking.

Great. I ve been reading a lot about html and css at the weekend and i think i will be able to handle most of the changes id like to make. The only ing is, id like to have two icons, one for a Spanish version of the website and another one for the English one. Is it possible to have that next to the logo or menu? I think it would invlove having two blogs in one?

Thanks a lot. If i can do it, ill buy the theme.

Default-user

hey, I need to buy a theme for tomorrow, could you please let me know if it’s doable and easy to add another language via a link to the same blog but in Spanish/English? Thanks :)

The Daisho demo has social media icons in the right footer, but I don’t see any widgets for adding these. Am I missing something?

Flow
Flow Author

Indeed there is no special widget for adding them. That’s because they are simple links that you can add using the text widget: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#footer

Considering buying, but have a couple of questions:

1. My client likes this theme, but “portfolios” are not great. Can the home page in the lovely GRID format pull “blog” posts instead?

2. If it has to be “portfolios”, can a couple of them STAY where they are somehow? We’d like a few “pages” to be shown as well. It’s ok if they are “redirected” from a portfolio, just need to know if there’s a way to make 2-3 grid items to be ALWAYS in the same spot.

Thanks, ~A

1. By default posts are fetched from the ‘portfolio’ post type. In project-loop.php you would have to change that to ‘post’ post type. Normal blog posts don’t have an option to upload a thumbnail and set mouse over color in [Posts > Add New]. You’d have to use the “Custom Fields” panel to check what custom fields are available for portfolio posts and add the same ones for normal blog posts.

2. That depends on what you mean by “stay”. When you resize the browser window they will automatically reposition to adapt to the size of the browser window. A couple of demos can be found on http://isotope.metafizzy.co/. If you simply mean that they should be presented in a certain order then you can pick this order in [Pages > (any portfolio page) > Order by].

The grid doesn’t support sticky posts by default.

Each thumbnail can link to URL (like a blog post) of your choice. This can be configured in [Portfolio > (any project) > External link (optional)].
