Hi!

Using a mobile with Windows Phone 7.5 and the demosite doesn’t resize, it’s like a normal website that isn’t responsive.

Then the phone isn’t using “viewport” tag like Android, iPhone and iPad do. Thanks for reporting. If something can be done about that – I’ll do that on Monday.

Helle there

I like the theme for a blog only and not for a portfolio, in than case, It is still only compatible with IE9 or the blog module works well on IE7 and IE8 ?

Blog only? That’s the feature that works best in IE7 and IE8 of all theme features :) You can check yourself. It won’t support box-shadow of top menu but basic layout and style displays fine for me.

Could I add to the “Grid homepage” the section “New Blog Posts” as I see on the “Classic homepage”?

Flow

Portfolio grid can’t have widgets. Classic mode can have any setup.

However, you can easily do that in template files. It’s just a matter of moving news section from index.php to template-portfolio.php (this is portfolio page template only) or to other place in index.php (since this file contains both classic mode and tn grid).

It should be as simple as moving selected code to the empty line on this screenshot, just below last line of code visible here: http://gyazo.com/8a3f6772fb588c4ec4dbe49964de1d06.png?1341086814

Hello,

I just purchased the theme and was able to install it and the typography plugin with no problems. I’ve been setting up the new pages for the site and noticed that some did or did not have icons so I deleted the menu that came with the imported demo site content and started a new menu that utilizes the drop-down to keep the top level to a minimum. However, it realyl screws up the whole header area. Please advise.

Yes, I think we have to add drop-downs, too. They are not supported (and not designed/included in PSD ).

Please stay tuned till Tuesday then and they should be ready within v1.0.1 update. I agree that that’s important feature that we missed. We should also add some more shortcodes.

I hope that it’s okay with you! Thanks for reporting that and providing clear screenshots that describe everything! :) I’m also sorry that it’s not included by default – we aimed simple structures because as you can see the theme is kept rather minimal.

Why is it when you filter an item and then you click on it to view, it always loads the first item in the portfolio. Surely that shouldn’t work like that?!

Flow

If item is vaild (have slides) it will load. If not – first valid item will load. On demo we’ve got many thumbnails but only a few project (like 4-5). That’s why you often get first project.

Hi there, really fantastic theme. I ve one short question: Will you support in this theme videos like in your “konzept”-theme?

That´s would be great!

Thanks and best luck with sales

Thank you :) Yes, videos are supported.

Hi,

Lovely theme, however, there I have a huge issue with it.

Whenever when I try to activate the theme, I get ‘Server error’ message and the entire WP admin can’t be accessed.

It can’t be problem on my end, because all other WP themes work just fine, and everything goes back to normal when I delete/change the name of the theme directly on the server.

I also followed your instruction guidelines and am not a rookie when it comes to WP.

Any ideas what causing it? Really annoyed that I paid for it and can’t even use it!

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you! You will surely be able to use it like 30 other people so far :)

First thing to check – are you uploading correct package? The one your downloaded from Themeforest or have you unzipped it? There is second package inside.

What kind of server error is that? Is it timeout? Out of memory?

Yes, I’ve downloaded the package from Themeforest. I’ve unzipped it > Inside I have found Daisho folder > another zip file inside which I unpacked > the newly unpacked folder is uploaded on the server. Still get the same error!

The error reads:
Server error
The website encountered an error while retrieving http://merdesign.co.uk/sketchbook/wp-admin/themes.php?activated=true. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.

HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

ps. I would have replied to your post directly, but there is no ‘reply’ button under your post. I can only reply to myself. Weird.

Flow
Flow Author

Please email me with WP login/password or create support ticket here (and provide login/password during registration): http://support.forcg.com/

I’ll investigate and let you know why is that. If it’s “HTTP Error 500” then it is actually server error and not script error. It even says what is that: “An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.”. It happens before any theme file is executed. Causes may vary. I would start with checking .htaccess, then CHMOD .

Contacting server administrator often resolves issues like that.

Ok, so: 1. I have created a separate admin user on the WP theme. 2. I have also registered on the support forum and added the login/password to access it – can you see it on my profile? (I have the same user name there). 3. None of the themes are activated (however Daisho is on the server). 4. The link to access this particular WP is: merdesign.co.uk/sketchbook/wp-admin

Thanks for your help and let me know how it goes. If it doesn’t work I think I might switch to Konzept theme though I’m not sure if I can get a refund?

Flow
Flow Author

Resolved.

We double test all the themes before uploading – all of them work. In you case issue was that FTP client modified theme files during upload (compressed them). I hope I helped :) Your website looks like live demo now.

hi nice theme:P I have just one question…can i adjust the height of the drag-down tab? depends on the input text?

Thank you

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you :)

Yes, it depends on the input text.

Please add audio type to the portfolio, you already support video! how about an audio player that appears in the image overlay, or maybe in a light box..

And of course as others have stated, more shortcodes..

Great work, best of luck with sales..;)

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you for your kind words and for your valuable suggestions :) We will surely add some shortcodes very soon and perhaps also audio player if more people would find it useful.

@Flow – Thank you very much for your help!

Anyone wondering what the support is like – it’s GREAT , Flow went extra 10 miles to sort out my problem!

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you so much for your positive feedback :) I’m really happy to read it!

the logo is resizable? can i put a logo with this dimensions : 100×100 px how big can it be?!

tnk

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, you can use any dimensions that would fit that area. It’s going to be vertically centered in header.

Desperate for the blog update so that i can buy this theme its stunning! I can’t impliment it until there is an expanded blog as with your other great themes because is a huge part of my site!

Flow
Flow Author

There is expanded blog where you can put any amount of content. I hope I understood you clearly. Let me know if that’s now what you meant :)

Very good job! Good luck with sales 8)

Hey Hey,

great work. I bought Agency and I’m very happy with it. I think I will change to daisho.

Does the thumbnails in the portfolio scroll endless or does it has a pagination??? Can I remove the claim under the menu and is it possible to have a single page with project list like in the konzept theme. I will hav a client list and would like to link it to the projects this way. It looks great.

Thanks for your support.

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you :)

1) They scroll endlessly.

2) Yes, you can edit or remove the claim below menu.

3) Such text list is available only in Konzept. Re-creating it is easy though. It’s just a couple of lines of CSS (see Konzept’s code for reference) and you can make text like that link to portfolio entries in index.php. It’s custom modification but an easy one.

I hope my answers are useful. Feel free to ask for more details if you need them.

Hi there, the theme looks great but i will wait to buy it because i need the dropdown function right away.. So hopefully it comes out soon (and a preview in your demo with a dropdown function)..

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you :) Drop-down update is planned for today.

Great theme! Would be nice to have the portfolio items swipe enabled on mobile devices. Also, the view of portfolio pages is a little confusing. Some people might not realize they need to scroll down to view the project items, and click on the arrows that take to the next project.

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you!

Swipe on mobile devices would be indeed useful. We’re thinking of adding keyboard and touch navigation to it.

Since, it’s unique approach to presentation of portfolio it may indeed cause some confusion but I think 99.9% of the users will notice how it works straight away. Navigation is limited to only necessary elements and you can see browser’s vertical scrollbar as well as a part of image on most of the monitors (which should indicate that you can or actually have to scroll down to see full image and/or more images).

I think user experience and navigation are well planned and designed here (especially if we consider the fact that it’s some creative and unique approach to presentation). Left/Right arrows are almost always considered “previous” or “next” photo or project in all web galleries :)

Selektor

Thanks, Flow!

Guess it depends on the screen size, and how much information you have in the title. On my monitor, I can’t see the images unless i scroll down, and given that only the project title, description, and arrows are visible, it’s only natural to assume that i should click on the arrows to see the image, not a next project.

I wouldn’t bet much on the visibility of the scroll bar as an indication that there’s more to the page, most people will follow arrows, not the scrollbar. My suggestion would be to simply label the arrows as “next/previous project names”, to avoid confusion

Other than that, it’s a beautiful theme, and is going into my bookmarks for future considerations

Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

This case is disputable and it’s hard to tell how many people might find it confusing.

You suggested very good improvements. It’s very easy to add “next project” or “previous project” text to arrows (either in HTML /CSS or on arrow image). I think more improvements like that could be made, too to narrow down potential confusion. I’ll talk with the designer about it. Thank you for taking time to tell us about it!

Hi, Lovely Theme, but have questions before I think about the purchase! Is it there any way to get rid of the pictorial icons above the menu item?

1. I do not like “Read More” buttons on the blog, I like 3-4 full posts per page. Is it possible to do that as a full-post blog rather than adding “Read More—->”? I want all content/photos on that blog like this one: http://www.leblogdebetty.com/en/

2. Any way to get rid of the main photo per post? I use a lot of photos per post.

Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks for your quick response! As for 2) are you able to do this task if I purchase it?

Default-user

And I don’t see a sidebar for the blog?

Flow
Flow Author

Your second questions is as easy as:

1) Go to template-blog.php and change the_excerpt(); to the_content();. 2) Perhaps remove calls to custom fields with thumbnail image. 3) Style new blog (and adjust HTML structure maybe? From 2 columns to 1.).

Third step takes the most of the time. We unfortunately don’t do any custom modifications but this one is very easy and can be done by anyone so any freelance developer will be able to help you quickly (1-2h and it’s done).

Blog doesn’t support sidebar. I can send you image with example project of blog with sidebar that matches this style if that helps.

Have you ever considered making your Portfolio Masonry Layout a separate plugin for purchase?

It’s free for personal and commercial use and $25 for redistribution license. Very good deal for such an excellent plugin :)
