How are you able to make some images larger than others in the layout? Would I choose which ones would be like that or is it done automatically?

Flow

There are two options:
  • Automatic/random
  • Manual (recommended)

You can pick your sizes and order :)

When trying to add a new portfolio item, this is the error message I receive:

If you see this message then your browser doesn’t support native upload or more likely something is broken because HTML5 Drag&Drop uploader couldn’t be loaded. Please try deactivating some plugins and make sure that the theme is installed on fresh installation of the newest WordPress. If you still see this message, please checks errors in Javascript console or contact our support. This issue is surely related to your server configuration or admin panel configuration. Slide management

I deactivated all plugins, and that didn’t help. I have the newest version of WordPress, and I just downloaded your theme about a week ago. Any suggestions on how I could fix this? Your help is very much appreciated.

Thanks!

If nothing helped then it’s something with server config – please create support ticket and we’ll login and investigate (please include WP login/password).

None of JS files that admin panel uses is accessible: http://grandviewdigfest.com/wp-content/themes/daisho3/scripts/brisk-uploader.js

Do they exist in theme folder?

Flow, it’s still not working, and it looks as if there are two JS files in the scripts folder. What else would you like me to try?

Thanks!

Flow

If files are present then you can only show that URL (and everything I wrote on forum) to Server Administrator. As you can see (a) file is there, (b) it’s not accessible via correct URL , (c) it’s not 403 permission denied but 404 not found, (d) incorrect server redirection is present (see forum), so I’m afraid that only Server Administrator can explain us that and fix that.

If this URL will return file then everything will start working: http://grandviewdigfest.com/wp-content/themes/daisho3/scripts/brisk-uploader.js

Right now 0 out of around 20 scripts load because server returns incorrect URL to WordPress and WordPress passes incorrect URL to theme.

So is your suggestion to contact my hosting company?

Flow
Flow Author

That’s right. It is clear what happens and I already provided you full details here and on forum :)

The guilty is some internal (unknown to me) server redirection that gives all files status “Moved temporarily” and “404 Not Found”. None of the components in admin panel was loaded because of this.

I got it figured out. Took a few hours, but it seems to be working now.

Flow

Great! :) It would be great if you could share the solution but I doubt that theme author can do anything about this – it seems like purely server config related thing that we don’t have control over (we can only display message like “please contact support” and we already do that).

Issues with SuperSlide Editor are very rare (1 out of 500 people reports something) and so far you’re probably the third person that have managed to see this error message.

Hi!,

i have a question. Is it possible to change the theme so i could still have thumbnail pictures, but if you click to the picture the post will be opened and not the portfolio site?

The page is wordpressprimoz.storitve-limit.si

Tnx for answer. Franci

Flow
Flow Author

Yes. Please just go to [Portfolio > Add New > External Link] and specify your link :) This is supported since like v1.8 (you’re using v1.6, so updating may be required).

  • Bought between 10 and 49 items

can i update version without uninstalling previous version?

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, please rename old folder to “Daisho-backup” and install it again. Please note that WordPress generally deletes previous theme and installs it again if you do it via [Dashboard > Updates > Themes]. We’re about to introduce auto-updates handled by WordPress for Daisho.

Another question, and this one should be a relatively small fix I think. In single-portfolio.php I adjusted client, agency, our role and date so that the text displayed would read vendor, category, address and website. This change isn’t reflected when I click on a portfolio thumbnail, but if I refresh the page, the change will be reflected.

Any help in letting me know what I’ve missed would be awesome. I’m sure there’s another file that I’m somehow missing.

Thank you! Love the theme.

This change should go to index.php, template-portfolio.php and single-portfolio.php. If you change that using translations (PO/MO files) then it’s going to affect all 3 places at once. I hope that helps :)

Flow, you are awesome! I kept missing the index.php change. THANK YOU SO MUCH !! :)

Flow Author

I’m happy that I could help and it works :)

It may look like those 3 files contain the same thing and should become a subject to get_template_part(); usage but it’s not that straight forward, so it’s not done this way. This way label would have to be edited only in 1 place but right now it’s 3 places.

Hello Daisho. I really like your work!

I would like to buy this template for my photography/design website but first I have a couple of easy questions for you.

1.Is it possible to have the sub-menu active and highlighted when you’re in the category? This would help people not to get lost, in case they miss out on the “back” button.

2.Can I eliminate the icons in the menu or is that a problem?

looking forward your reply

best,

Martina

I’m glad that you like it! :)

1) Rather no because project view isn’t the same what “X portfolio category archive (page)”. It will highlight if you put direct link to that particular project under [Appearance > Menus]. It will not highlight if you put “X category” in menu and open project in “X category”. Also, it does work only when entering project directly. Entering from front-page doesn’t refresh website, so it’s just “popup window” and it will not generate “current-page-item” class on menu items.

2) Yes.

I hope that helps :)

Hi, I’m on v 1.8.1 still, couple of questions:

1. The 1.9 versions are marked as alpha, am I to assume they are alpha builds ie very experimental and not recommended for live sites? Just debating on whether to upgrade

2. Which sidebar/widget area corresponds to which footer column? I have the footer segmented into 50/50. Sidebar 2 seems to correspond to column last, just wanted the official answer.

3. Related to item 2 above, when I add a custom footer/html to sidebar 2 it does not show on the home/portfolio page but shows on all other pages. However the default copyright info is showing up on the homepage. Any ideas how to get multiple column footers on the homepage (if it defaults to portfolio)

4. Do later versions support social links on static pages? I’m looking at just the usual fbook, g+ etc icons in the footer area?

Thanks again. Wonderful theme.

Flow
Flow Author

1) Yes but it works just fine. It’s just indication that small bugs may be present.

2) 3)
  • Generally everything should appear everywhere unless explicitly defined otherwise by user under [Pages > Add New > Sidebar Replacement] – that’s about v1.9.
  • On 1.8.1 you only have 2 fixed/pre-defined footer columns – see @6:10 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yvf2dcPfiHM and footer copyright notice is defined under [Daisho > Footer]. It is very limited but this limit is gone in v1.9 and you can create any footer columns with any widgets (Footer Copyright notice becomes “Text Widget” since v1.9).

4) The look will stay the same. Demo is using v1.9 at this moment. But social icons code may vary slightly. The code for each footer column is available here: http://support.forcg.com/bb-templates/kakumei-flow/help/daisho/index.html#footer

Please let me know if that explains everything or not :) I’m glad that you like the theme – please update only if v1.9 introduces important to you changes. Other than that – please wait for some further update and update less often (like every second release or once a 4-6 months and not once a 1-2 months).

Thank you so much for the thorough answers. I think I’ll end up upgrading given some new flexibility in 1.9. Are you pushing out any more versions in the next day or two? Just want to make sure I don’t end up missing an important update in the near future.

Flow
Flow Author

We’re preparing updates and improvements all the time (6 days a week). The next version should appear soon – maybe not this week but perhaps next week :)

Please wait (7-10 days) – it’s going to be faster, lighter and with even cleaner code. There are also new features coming.

Excellent. I’ll hold off on my upgrade until next week then. Thanks again.

What is the best method to update the Daisho theme?

thx

Flow
Flow Author

1. Delete.
2. Install again.

If you won’t refresh admin panel during deleting and installing again it will work without any other action. You can also rename “daisho” folder to “daisho-backup” and install it again. This may be useful:

Let me know if you need more information about it :)

Hi Flow,

I’m a dev so no worries on tech speaks. I’m trying to remove the padding between the tiles on the home page. I’ve figured it is from absolute positioning and width.

I’ve tried increasing width, but that tells to js to reshuffle things as they’re too big to fit then. What’s the best way to achieve this you think?

Thanks for the awesome theme dude.

Cheers

Flow
Flow Author
Increasing gap will force you to think of new thumbnail dimensions. Here’s what would be required:
1) Increase width of the main container.
2) Increase gaps in index.php in JS script (it starts in the middle of index.php, single-portfolio.php and template-portfolio.php in 1.9).
3) Adjust thumbnail sizes to new gaps.
  • If small thumbnail has width=10px and gap=5px then horizontal thumbnail has exactly width=25px.
  • Changing gap to 7px will force you to change width of horizontal thumbnail to 10px + 7px + 10px = 27px. Same for: vertical (but you change height), medium (you change both), large (you change both). And width of the main container is 1120px at this moment, so increasing gap would force you to change that to about 1130px or 1140px. And if you change it to 1140px on front page then you’ll need to also change that on all sub-pages to maintain consistency.

I hope that helps :) And I’m glad that you like the theme! Let me know if you need more information about that. It may sound like a lot of work but in reality it’s just a couple of numbers – widths of thumbnails are located in framework/shortcodes/daisho-isotype/style.css.

Hi Flow,

Do you have an estimation for the 2.0 version? The changes for 1.9 are impressive, but if I need to customize my theme again, I would prefer a somewhat final version.

Flow
Flow Author

v2.0 is distant plan (beginning/middle of next year) because we have a lot of features planned for it but there’s another v1.9 coming next week. It will introduce yet another set of improvements – about 10 bug fixes, new “Styling” section and faster code with less database requests.

Updates should be published each month til everything we have planned is ready, so please update like every 3-6 months (my recommendation would be to skip some versions). Furthermore, using Child Themes makes updating and maintaining custom modifications easier but I would recommend to update only if the current update contains a feature that you need :) Other than that please update less often.

I updated it yesterday with the newer code, so online documentation is not the one that should be used for this single thing. Please copy the code from the one you have bundled in the package. I hope that helps :) I can paste the code here if you’d like me to.

hi im new to wordpress and all, just wondering im about to buy this (today) i noticed that it has 2 languages options can i change that to Spanish? and if so how lol.

I been playing around with free templates to understand how to edit and stuff but i haven’t seen anything with multi lang so i have no clue how that works.

Please check online documentation and localization section. That should help :) We use paid WPML plugin ($79 version) on demo but there are free solutions out there, too. Daisho has POT file prepared, so you can use ANY plugin to handle translations. Everything that is responsibility of theme developer is there – all the files are prepared for translation in the correct way. The rest is up to external plugins. Everything can be translated (including dynamic WordPress and theme output like date formats etc.).

sorry but in mobile support, when i enter inside a portfolio item i cannot go back anymore, there i NO back button!!!

There should be logo in the top left corner that will get you back to homepage.

It’s going to work exactly like demo does.

Additionally, browser “back” and “forward” buttons work just like “close” button on mobile phones (iPhone, Android).

Hi there, I’m new to wordpress and your theme. really liking it so far but having trouble with my portfolio, even with my images quite large they look pixelated as thumbnails. When you view them individually they are fine resolution wise but as a thumbnail on the portfolio grid they all look awful!

Another question, is it possible to make the title text above each image smaller? I appreciate it was designed really big to make a bold statement on your theme but I’d like to make it smaller if possible? thanks in advance for your help. Natalie

Flow
Flow Author

Can I have your URL, please? Do you use at least size specified in admin panel under [Portfolio > Add New]? For instance minimum width for large thumnail is 670px but if you’d like it to be sharp on Retina then you need to upload 2x larger thumbnails. Does this “awful” and “pixelated” look happens on demo, too for you? We don’t use Retina thumbnails on demo (some are actually Retina ready and some aren’t) but it’s possible to have them all sharp. Let me know if you need my further guidance with this.

You mean project title? Please use the following selector: .project-title in style.css around line 600 and set font-size and line-height to your liking.

Well, I hope that helps and waiting for your feedback on no. 1.

Hello, Loving this theme, great job! I have one question though. For the main top Menu. Is it possible to use images from my Library instead of the text/font Icons? How do I do this? Thanks a bunch! :)

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it :)

Top menu uses vector images (that scale nicely on Retina displays). It is not recommended to replace them with raster images but you can do that. The trick (one of many) is to do something like: #menu-item-3893 .menu-icon { background-image: url('your-image.jpg'); }. You’ll need Firebug to investigate what is ID of each menu item. You can also make “Description” field load images as img tags with slight modifications to theme files.

You’ve got even more possibilities to replace current icons with other ones… (both rather and vector).

Please visit support forum and support staff will provide you detailed instructions. You can also hire them to do that for you – time it requires would be 15-30min and the cost for such simple changes is up to you – from $0 to anything.

I hope that helps!

Quick question: Can the portfolio be three columns?

Flow
Flow Author

Three columns of thumbnails (like when you resize browser window to width=1024px)? It’s possible when you give wrapper container of portfolio grid lower width. It’s easy modification to files.

And projects in theory can have 3 columns, too – SuperSlide Editor offers “custom code” field where you can put DIVs and various other HTML.
