Thanks that’s really helpful. I will look into that now. Can you tell me specifically how to change the typeface and leading of the portfolio title items (the really large, heavy sans serif)? thanks :)

Flow

Great! I really hope that you’ll get to know CSS selectors soon :) It’s easy.

To get selector for this you just do the following: 1) Right-click.
2) Pick “Inspect Element…”.
3) And you instantly see: .project-title selector with defaults: http://gyazo.com/a1cfce2560c932af126065befd61bbde
4) Paste selector into Typography Plugin and adjust settings.

PS
Default font size is 160px, default color is black (#000000) etc.

Thanks Flow! I’ve got it! It’s actually really simple to do! one (hopefully) last question, How do I change the blue highlighted boxes on the portfolio categories and blue highlighted text on the menu in the home page? I just want to change the colour and take off the rounded edges of the box. Thanks :)

It’s here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes in “Portfolio” selectors. This “cheat sheet” of selectors seems to be very useful, so it will surely be emphasized in v1.9, so everyone will be able to just find selector they are looking for by category and description on such list :)

The first selector that you’re interested in this time is this: #options li a.selected and when you follow link above you’ll find the others (like :hover state) next to this one on that list.

hi, i have a problem uploading images to a portfolio item.. i choose image, upload it and after that a problem sign appears on the right of status column (wich says 100%..).. any idea?

Flow
Flow Author

It’s called “HTTP Error” perhaps. Exactly the same issue is described here: http://support.devatic.com/?page_id=59 and it’s server misconfiguration.

You can still upload media using the following:
  • “Image” icon on the same page
  • “Media Library” in WordPress

Drag&Drop uploading requires correctly configured server. Please ask Server Administrator to send you exact error that occured.

Hello, which version of Daisho are you using? This module must have been present there long ago (or not at all) and it’s now gone because I don’t remember it. It’s shouldn’t be a part of v1.8.1. It’s been replaced with Plupload or it’s a part of some plugin. Please update theme if possible to newer version.

Wordpress is telling me that the stylesheet is missing. It’s listed under broken themes. What should I do?

Flow
Flow Author

Please see common installation issues in documentation. It’s probably the most common issue on TF and it’s fortunately easy to be resolved – once you download “Daisho” from Themeforest, please unzip the package and inside you’ll find more files – documentation, PSD , and THEME FILES in another zip package (you should install only theme files and not full package because indeed this one doesn’t contain stylesheet).

Ok! That worked. It is now showing up on my dashboard. Now though, when I try to activate it, or visit my site, it say’s:

“Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home/content/10/10064110/html/wp-content/themes/daisho/framework/admin/background-menu.php on line 1”

Thank you for being so helpful!

Please see common installation issues in documentation. It’s one of the most common issues and it’s fortunately easy to be resolved. Solution: http://support.devatic.com/?page_id=82

The reason: files have been modified and compressed by Filezilla during upload. They need to be original to work. You don’t need to compress them because we already do that to ensure it’s going to load fast :)

I hope that you’ll be finally able to use Daisho. Feel free to contact me if you need more assistance. You probably don’t have much experience with WordPress, yet but it’s a great platform and Daisho is a nice theme, too, so it should meet your needs :)

Hi Flow! I bought your theme yesterday and I’m having a little problem with the portfolio. I placed on the site the dummy content because I thought it was easier…

I did’nt know how to explain this, so I made a video: http://youtu.be/-KgkbHesESE

Can you help me?

The error you’re getting: “Operation is insecure” from this file: http://dnn506yrbagrg.cloudfront.net/pages/scripts/0012/8885.js?375730

It’s not a part of Daisho. Please try disabling “redirection” and “pretty link” plugin. Aditionally, please update to v1.8.1 because you’re using v1.8. It has improved JS and plugin compatibility.

Default-user

Hi again. I disabled the plugins and updated to 1.8.1 but the problem is still there. Do you know what could be?

Flow
Flow Author

The error is still there. To speed things up please move that question to support forum – I’ll login to your WordPress and check.

The error is located in HTML5 History API . Your source code looks almost like demo one but there’s one suspicious thing – var document_title = "Ricardísimo";. Can you remove that “í” letter form page title? Maybe we should strip characters like that – perhaps HTML5 History API doesn’t support that.

Hi, short question: Is this theme included a shortcode generator or similar?

Thanks in adcance

mike

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, some basic shortcode generator is included. All shortcodes are listed in documentation and 50% of them is available in shortcode generator.

Not all of them are available in that generator because we dropped development of that thing. Soon we’ll introduce something easier to use than shortcode generator. By “soon” I mean Daisho v2 and current release is 1.8. We’re about to release 1.9, so distance between 1.9 and 2.0 should be like 1-2 months.

thanks for your quick answer. sounds good :-)

Hi Flow, I really like your work so I must ask you are you interested in freelancer job? https://www.freelancer.com/projects/PHP-AJAX/site-similar-usatoday-com.html

I think you’re the right person for it. PS. Price/salary is not fixed, I can pay more

Flow
Flow Author

It looks like large scale project. I’m unfortunately not able to take freelance works but I would strongly suggest that you stick to WordPress as your base platform. It’s great :)

Do we have any hope for IE8 /9 support?

Flow
Flow Author

IE9 = fully supported.

IE8 = Microsoft will remove it from all pages on 15th November 2012 and it will be no longer supported. Only IE9 and IE10 are up to date at this moment. IE8 loses great deal of users each month and it should be gone altogether in the coming months. We’re dropping support for it, too. It’s just outdated and doesn’t support things like HTML5 and CSS3 .

Fair enough. I really like this theme. I was bothered by the fact it was broken in IE. I think it’s unfortunate that I have to leave any user still using XP or Older version of IE behind, but Chrome and Firefox are fantastic browsers and they should be using them over IE anyway.

Thank you for a great product! I will be purchasing this theme soon.

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you for your kind words :) I’m glad that you like it.

Well, IE6 ,7,8 don’t support many Javascript, HTML and CSS features (not to mention basic PNG transparency etc.). You usually can’t install Windows XP on computers bought in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Users will now move to Windows 7 and Windows 8 anyway and only IE9 and IE10 will remain up to date and supported by Microsoft.

Some advantages of Daisho:
  • Retina ready (we use vector icons, you can upload SVG logo and other images).
  • iPad/iPhone/Android/Windows Phone compatible – it’s going to be also compatible with future tablets and similar devices.
  • Responsive (HTML structure is prepared to work with various devices, screen sizes and resolutions).
  • We use HTML5 and CSS3 – this makes animations smooth and document structure search engines friendly.
  • It’s all focused on the future – above ensures that Daisho will be up to date in November 2013 and 2014 and 2015 (and at least up to 2020?). We use standards that are not yet present in some browsers :) I think it’s a good choice anyway.

It is possible to paginate the portfolio page? It gets really big when you are viewing all works.

Flow
Flow Author

No. This website has (literary) infinite number of thumbnails and it’s not bad: http://newsbare.com/ (it’s actually very convenient to navigate for me – I like when I don’t have to click or do any other redundant action to see more content).

If you think that pagination or something else should be added, please open feature request on our support forum and we’ll discuss that. There are some technical and UX aspects that prevent us from adding pagination that you may not be aware of at this moment.

Hi Again Flow,

Is there a way to dim the image (but not the text) on mouse-over of the portfolio items? For the items we have, some of them get kinda hard to read when mouse-over because they have white backgrounds and the text is white too.

Cheers!

tribalapes

Awesome! I didn’t even know you could do it like that!

Thanks!

tribalapes

While your here, do you think you could check out the mobile layout – the logo isn’t resizing down.

Thanks mate, really appreciate your efforts :D

Flow
Flow Author

Logo doesn’t resize also on demo. To ensure that it fits all areas you should limit it to dimensions that demo have (100-200px). Please use our support forum to get quicker and better help. Thanks :)

Hi, How and where can i download the PSD for the main slide? Thanks, Berg

Flow
Flow Author

PSD is available in the package in “PSD” folder – it includes almost everything and everything is well grouped and named. You don’t have to use it – you can use this as reference: http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/slide1.png and the slideshow will accept also standard images but making it have some nice gradients obviously looks better.

Hello,

Is possible to display ‘frontpage recent blog entries’ under portfolio in thumbnail grid mode?

Thanks,

Flow
Flow Author

Unfortunately, no. If you need guidance on how to make it happen, please ask on our support forum and I’ll provide you the code. You can also open feature request and we’ll discuss that.

I’ve submited post on support forum.

BTW : daisho theme is a great job!

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you for submitting and for your kind words :) I just replied with code example and I marked this as feature request to be added in one of the further releases.

I just bought the theme, and my website now is reeeeeeeeeally slow. As far as I can understand it can be a plugin incompatibility issue…can you list plugins that have problems working together with the theme?

Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author
can you list plugins that have problems working together with the theme?
As far as I know – none have issues right now. All popular plugins should work fine. It has really good plugin compatibility. Demo loads in 1.5 seconds right now (v1.9) and it is optimized very well. Can I have your URL , please? Did you try it without any plugins installed? Did you try TwentyEleven theme with the same plugins activated?

Thank you for using forum :) I’ve already replied.

For information of others Daisho is super-lightweight (and we’re going to cut on code execution time even more by compressing resources, merging files and minifying scripts soon).

Hi there!

Love the theme.

I’ve installed version 1.9-alpha1 and I’m concerned because I use the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin. Is it going to enter in conflict with the new SEO features from your theme???

Best Regards,

Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it :)

Perhaps yes because both insert the same meta tags to wp_head();. I used modules from Yoast plugin. If you want to disable full SEO module, please go to functions.php and remove or comment out this line: require_once (TEMPLATEPATH . '/framework/admin/seo/flow-seo.php');

It will disable SEO module (all its components and everything from both back-end and front-end).

Default-user

I’ll do it.

Thanks a lot for the info :D

I just purchased this theme and am excited about working with it. I’d like to ask which calendar/events plugin(s) work best with it.

Thanks for a super cool, non-corporate theme!

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you! I’m happy to hear that you like it :)

Rather than recommending some particular plugins I think it would be better if you read some reviews and pick some popular plugin (those are generally the best) from here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/

Daisho should be compatible with all plugins written up to WordPress standards. It has very good plugin compatibility at this moment :)

Thanks for your fast reply. Will try the All-in-One Event Calendar and see how it goes.

Flow
Flow Author

Many people need calendars and there are many free and paid solutions out there. Some are simple and some are really powerful. Some allow users to schedule appointments and others allow booking hotel rooms. That’s why I didn’t give you any recommendations – because it’s much dependent on your feature and functionality needs :) I hope I helped somehow anyway.

Hey Flow,

Just purchased Daisho. In addition to what looks like a great theme that will more than suit my needs, the final selling point was the extensive support system you have built around all your themes. Awesome!

Another user above mentioned the Yoast SEO plugin, which I am a huge fan of as well. Perhaps you could ad a line of code that would disable the themes SEO if yoast’s plugin is active. Or a simple checkbox would do as well. Until then I will adjust the functions.php file as noted above.

Once again, awesome job. Also: Kudos for making the well written documentation available before purchase. It makes it much easier to decide if a theme is a good fit or not.

“SEO Module” option in admin panel has been just added and will appear in 1.9-alpha2 that I’m uploading at this moment. It contains a few more new features and minor bug fixes, too.

Really nice theme, like it ^^ I have some problem with name of portfolio category. http://kogus.ru/ – you can see it. When click on “???-??????” nothing happens. Maybe there is a problem with cyrillic. Waiting for solution. Thanks.

Flow
Flow Author

You’re right. All the characters have been converted to some other symbols in source code and that might cause issues. Can you please move this question to support forum? We’ll resolve this for you and fix main package.
