great template. With the potfolio filter how can i change the word all work?

Flow

I’m glad that you like it!

You can translate the strings that themes and plugins have built-in using the PO/MO files that are usually included. This theme is based on the default WordPress theme so 100% of the strings are translatable. More information: http://support.forcg.com/topic/translating-themes

Hi Flow,

Great job on the theme! I had four questions to ask regarding customising some things within the theme:

1. How do I change the text on the “back” button with an arrow that comes on project pop-ups to “home”? 2. How do i disable the grid layout options for the portfolio? (the two thumbnails on the left hand side of the project categories. I do not want my users to change the way the grid looks, hence.) 3. Is there a way to get rid of “our role” and have nothing there? If yes, could you direct me to which two exact places in the project-container.php/project-loop.php files that i’ll have to make the changes in? 4. how do i change the theme rollover colour(which is currently a blue-green, to black)?

Thanks in advance!

Flow

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

2. “Portfolio Filter – hide size toggler” – http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

3. Yes, it’s enough to not specify “Our Role”. It won’t show up. You can also give it .project-ourrole { display: none !important; } in your child theme’s style.css. Duplicating project-container.php to your child theme and removing it from there is the least recommended option.

1. Is there a way to rearrange the portfolio filter categories without using any plugins?

2. can you provide the CSS code to bring the social icons in the footer to the header right under the logo?

Flow

1. WordPress doesn’t have an option to reorder custom taxonomies. This also doesn’t qualify for something that a theme should add according to WordPress’s recommendations: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review (see Presentation Vs. Functionality).

You can either change this order in project-loop.php on line where it says $tax_terms = get_terms( 'portfolio_category', array( 'hide_empty' => true ) ); using http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_terms or use plugins like http://wordpress.org/plugins/taxonomy-terms-order/

Usage of plugins is recommended.

2. This can’t be done with pure CSS. The footer is widgetized and you can create any columns with any widgets inside. The header doesn’t have any widget areas or hooks so to achieve what you’re looking for you’d have to edit header.php.

After the DIV that looks like this: <div class="logo">[...]</div> you can insert these icons using the code from the documentation.

Once you do that it will look like this: http://i.gyazo.com/e83ca31cd24d77a4a6dcefa2f545aa9e.png

Then you can add some style:
.site-header .footer-fa {
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 30px;
}

.site-header .footer-fa a {
  color: #c6cacb;
  font-size: 18px;
  margin-right: 10px;
}
.site-header .footer-fa a:hover {
  color: #00a4a7;
  text-decoration: none;
}

@media (max-width: 767px) {
  .site-header .footer-fa {
    bottom: auto;
    position: relative;
    text-align: center;
  }
}

It will look like that:

I haven’t tested that in all the major browsers, systems, devices and resolutions. To have it done right it’s best to contact freelance developers on http://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-customization which was created for those who’d like to customize WordPress themes.

Hi Flow,

When are we getting a Theme update for 2014?

Hackers are going to start hitting us very soon.

Flow

Why do you think that it’s vulnerable to hacker attacks?

A lot of people have access to the full source code of this theme. Some are analyzing it and reporting various issues. At this moment I’m not aware of any security leaks in the theme’s files.

To reduce the possibility of any security vulnerabilities Daisho v2.0.1 is based on Twenty Thirteen and Twenty Fourteen frameworks. A lot of its files (especially core files and functions.php) are based on the default WordPress’s framework to ensure that up-to-date functions and practices are used. 2014 framework was released in December 2013 but was under construction in entire 2013. That’s when I updated Daisho to it.

There were no significant changes in 2014 framework since then so you’re using the most up-to-date files.

taumorena

Outdated open-source software is always vulnerable. Otherwise if you’re saying that we’re on the most up-to-date files then I’m happy. Thanks for the response.

Flow

WordPress’s default themes are carefully coded and multiple developers better than me and most authors on ThemeForest check if they are secure.

WordPress is used by around 20% of all the websites worldwide. Its default themes are a reference for other free and premium themes. They are supposed to have the best code possible.

If a theme is based on the default framework then it’ll generally have fast, simple and secure code.

Other (nonofficial) frameworks are created by developers of unknown skill level and may be vulnerable.

Nonetheless, even if you’re using a theme like Twenty Ten (2010) then it’s still as secure as Twenty Fourteen. WordPress team didn’t discontinue older themes.

Fantastic.

Hello! In your theme “Konzept” when i open post i can close it by clicking on cross, which have place on top-right. Can i close post in theme “Daisho” by cross too? https://www.dropbox.com/s/x87czxns9qknk87/2.jpg

In the Daisho theme there is the “Back” button instead of the “X”. It works the same way.

Hi! I would like to ask 3 pre-purchase questions.

I am interested in a homepage with a filter grid gallery with a repeated icon.

1) I would need at least six columns but I would like all the items of the grid to have the same size and not toggle sizes. So is it possible to remove the toggle button and add columns?

2) When choosing a category (filter) is it possible to keep all the projects on the grid but activate and change the color of the icon to the ones that belong to the gallery?

3) Can I change the shape (I need circles) and the size of the items in the grid ?

Thank you!

Flow

1) Yes, you can remove the sizes filter and add columns using tickets from the FAQ. Changing their sizes is for advanced users. Topics that mention this are #4943 and #6613. As soon as you adjust the style JavaScript will adapt automatically.

2) The other ones should be less opaque like in Konzept? That’s not possible but Isotope that was used in this project is a powerful library and it’s very likely to allow that easily. Some third party developer would have to investigate that for you. I’m adding this question to my suggestions list too.

3) See the first question on how to change their sizes. Theoretically you can also change their shapes with .element { border-radius: 670px; } but Chrome and Firefox may round the content of them (i.e. the images) differently. As long as you’re using 220×150px thumbnails for the smallest box (and not 440×300px for Retina displays) then it should round them in an expected by you manner.

Generally all the changes that you’re requesting are doable and this theme may be a good starting point for you. You’ll probably need help of a freelance developer from Envato Studio or Elance to help you customize it further. The cost of preparing such website will be $50 for the theme plus $100–200 for the changes. They seem to require 2–4 hours of work.

Hello again,

hey flow, two quick questions:

1. Is there a reason why I can’t see my symple-shortcodes toggle while editing posts/pages. The shortcodes work when I write the code manually in the post, but, I can’t see the shortcode toggle from where I can select various things and the code appears automatically after entering data.

2. Is the team slider, a plugin or a shortcode- and which one is it? How do i get to doing that?

Thanks in advance!

Flow

1. WordPress 3.9 updated to TinyMCE 4.x and broke most plugins. Updated Symple Shortcodes wasn’t available for a few weeks but now it’s available. Here’s the updated plugin: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/24744973/7088/symple-shortcodes.zip (this version has auto-update module already). I’ll update the theme package with this version of the plugin soon.

2. It’s a shortcode. You can have one per page. Here’s how you can create “slides” in it: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#contentBlock

Default-user

Thank you so much. It worked. You are awesome!

From where do I make the type-size of the Project description smaller? Also, will it automatically resize in responsive templates or should I change it at different places to make sure it reduces proportionately? Please let me know.

Thanks again!

Flow

Great, please have a look at “Project View – project description – color, font” in http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

The styles for portfolio are located in /modules/library-isotope/portfolio.css.

Some things (like the title, the description or the project’s meta data) have multiple CSS @media queries applied for various resolutions. To edit them you’ll need to know how do they work. This page may help you: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/CSS/Media_queries

Please make sure to use a child theme to do the modifications.

You can create one standard column with image, heading and one paragraph. Please consider making such page 100% wide with floating picture because just one 1/3 column with 2/3 empty space would look weird in my opinion.

Hello,

I want to ask something about theme

-Can we add portfolio categories to side bar -And can we add portfolio categories to side bar cloud like popular categories in portfolio categories

Thanks

Flow
Flow Author

The theme has archives for portfolio intentionally disabled in /core/post-type-portfolio.php. If you enabled them by using 'has_archive' => true, then URLs such as http://example.com/portfolio_category/print/ would work and archive.php would be used to list portfolio projects in this format (without thumbnails): http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/category/photography/

You can link to that page from the sidebar.

You can also create archive-portfolio.php or taxonomy-portfolio_category.php and make it load thumbnails (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy). It’s not done this way in the theme at this moment. I think I won’t do that because this entire portfolio grid will become a shortcode without archives.

Another solution that doesn’t require creating archives can be found in #4884 and #5230. That’s probably a better solution and the shortcode will use this and almost certainly not the WordPress’s archives.

Another one -Is search engines search and index; texts,subjects and categories of portfolio

Thanks

Flow
Flow Author

Yes. The HTML structure of the thumbnails grid is similar to the one from archive pages such as http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/category/photography/ and archive.php’s structure is similar to the one from the default WordPress themes. Similarly single portfolio page is similar to single blog post page: http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/uncategorized/unreasonably-long-post-title/ and single.php is similar to the one from the default themes.

The default themes (and this one) use HTML structure that is very close to be the most proper structure. Therefore, it should be properly indexed by search engines.

Hi there,

I have a question on behalf of a client that has a current version of your theme but, typically, hasn’t done anything with it. yet. They hadn’t even installed it.

1) I’ve played with their backend in a dev environment and don’t find Symple Shortcodes particularly friendly. Does the theme support VC (I’ve read the FAQ’q and downgraded the version, which works) but even with the php “tweak” the latest version doesn’t work. Although i don’t need isotype 2, and there any plans to make the theme more compatibile with VC?

2) In trying to create a Child theme (or use your own) I’m getting “no template defined” errors. I’ve built my own simple Child Theme ( I’m a 3 yr Genesis developer and Forum Support for 3 top 40 TF Themes ) but the error keeps showing, with yours or mine, even though Daisho is currently the “active theme” therefore obviously fully installed.

I have no choice other than start with the client’s current theme, and I do LOVE your theme. My issue is simply that for the new design I need to include several full width parallax sections so I do need the extra functionality of VC and additionally purchased plugins if I’m not gonna hack the templates.

If you check my profile, I’ve been a member for 4 years and purchased more than 30 licences, so I’m not looking for “freebie” advice or support.

I simply don’t want to start hacking the theme php to achieve full width “sections”; I would end up working for this client till I retire :-)

regards

Daisho is very similar to the default WordPress themes if it comes to HTML and CSS structures. That’s to ensure that it’s simple, flexible and compatible with most plugins.

1) I haven’t tested it with VC thoroughly yet but I’ll be happy to do that. The last time I tested them together they worked fine. They should be compatible since the default themes and this one use the same file and HTML structures. I can take a look at your website if you create a support ticket. Indeed, Isotope included in VC causes conflicts with Daisho’s Isotope and I’ll update Daisho with the newer library shortly. There are still a couple of improvements I’d like to make before I can update it.

2) Daisho’s folder must be named exactly ‘daisho’ if you’d like the child theme from http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/daisho-child.zip to recognize it. If you change the name of the parent theme then the child theme’s style.css needs to be updated too to let it know what is the name of the parent theme.

3) Instead of current .site-content { margin: 0 auto; width: 92%; max-width: 1120px; } in style.css you can change max-width to none to make pages have full width.

Generally as far as I know VC is compatible with most themes and especially in case of this one there’s shouldn’t be any issues worth mentioning. If you create a support ticket and provide a mockup of what is your desired final result then I’ll be able to help you.

Hi there,

Just bought your awesome theme! Quick question. Is there a short code for adding the portfolio thumbnail grid on the standard homepage? Instead of just the 5 recent projects? Maybe the 10 most recent but with different sizes.

Thanks!

I’m glad that you like the theme! There is no such shortcode but there surely will be. It’s something I want to create instead of or in addition to the current “portfolio page template”. I was planning to create it somewhere next month but if you create a support ticket and wait a couple of days I think I can deliver it quicker.

I tryied like u advised. Downloaded daisho.pot to the local machine, than opened it in POEDit, translated strings – but then just created one daisho.mo file without daisho.po file, so can’t edit text language anyway, or i just doing smth wrong.

The MO file must be named like fr_FR.mo, pt_BR.mo, en_US.mo, en_GB.mo etc. Once you have your MO file please add something like define('WPLANG', 'en_US'); to your wp-config.php (in the main WordPress’s directory) and it’ll work.

Please check tutorials like: http://www.appthemes.com/blog/how-to-translate-a-wordpress-theme/ This mechanism is universal to all WordPress plugins and themes.

1) Do you have any accompanying CSS files for that font? If no please follow the pattern present in /modules/fonts/fonts.css to load these files. Example @font-face tutorial: http://www.miltonbayer.com/font-face/

You can load these files in any style file (like style.css or fonts.css).

2) You can hide it in [Daisho > General] by selecting a page that it’s supposed to display to “none”.

Yes, I’m still here all the time. Its current version is updated to the newest framework from 2014 and it uses features that WordPress 3.9.1 introduced. Its HTML structure is unlikely to change significantly.

Hi there,

Nice theme!

Is it possible to mix portfolio and blog posts on home page?

Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it!

You can link thumbnails to any external URL (including a blog post).

Blog posts don’t have an option to specify 220×150px image as thumbnail and they don’t have other options that portfolio posts have. Therefore, by default they can’t be displayed there together with portfolio posts.

Theoretically on line 127 in project-loop.php you could change 'post_type' => array( 'portfolio' ), to 'post_type' => array( 'portfolio', 'post' ), and it’s likely to load blog posts too. I haven’t tried that though. You would also have to enable page reloads for the thumbnails which is mentioned in the FAQ on the line that begins with “Portfolio – enable page reloads”.
