Hi, Yesterday I purchased the Daisho WordPress theme and I have experienced a number of problems with the instillation. In short, I purchased this theme with the understanding that it was for instillation through wordpress.com. No where on the Daisho site or Themeforst.net Daisho purchase page, did it ever detail that THIS THEME IS ONLY TO BE USED THROUGH “WORDPRESS.ORG” (NOT .COM). I even noticed that youtube video that is offered to guide the instillation covers up the web addreess area that details ”.com” or ”.org”. If these details were clearly stated anywhere along the path of purchase, I would never have purchased this theme. Given the lack of information on your side I would like to be directed on how to get a refund.

Hello, I just replied to your email with the same message. I understand what happened. Wordpress.com indeed doesn’t allow any custom themes from Themeforest or any other external website. They don’t have “Upload a Theme” button.

Can you please contact Envato Support in such event? They will let you know what to do now. Thanks!

I can’t seem to figure out how to get a purchase code to use the daisho support forum. Clicking the “item purchase code” link only gives me a “503 service unavailable” error. How do I get an item purchase code?

You can find it on [Themeforest.net > “Downloads” > Daisho > License Certificate]. The link that returns 503 is an image that shows the location of “License Certificate” button. I hope that helps :)

Hi, i really think about buying this amazing theme. I have one question. Is there any way to make fullscreen (full flexible width) something like this ..

I’m glad that you find it close to meeting your needs and requirements :)

It only supports more page-like project presentation. You can check the trial website to see how it works.

Hi Guys, more search brings me back more and more to your template, its so crisp, yet I am worried about the admin . As i explained before our coding skills are not good. Now with your latest update is the Admin Panel any stronger towards novice coders like myself? As to change fonts, backgrounds, and header fonts, or simply input content into the website. If we can have the features of the template this will really save us time and less bothering to you.

We have a domain with Godaddy.com should we have a problem installing this template?

“If we can have the features of the template this will really save us time and less bothering to you.”
Creating such tools is our goal for all upcoming updates. There are some settings already but they are rather limited to only ~50 options and it’s all in back-end so you can’t preview changes in real-time on the front end.

We are aware of this fact and user-friendly tools are on the way. They will appear gradually. April, May and June should bring at least two the most important ones.

While they are not there you can:

  • try themes that have them,
  • use this one and ask us on support forum for changes (if we receive a single list of all desired changes then it’s going to be easy to provide selectors and CSS rules),
  • and also, you can find developers on the support forum to do changes for you.

A very seamless website created using Daisho is http://www.alejandrogallego.es/ Can you advice if this needs a CSS expert to create a similar content layout using just the Admin Panel of Daisho template Thanks again and sorry

This person created smart images like this: http://www.alejandrogallego.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/MADE-Alejandro-Gallego-08.jpg which contributes to good impression. I bet no CSS changes were necessary at all :)

I´m having two problems that seem to be connected. The SEO module for my homepage www.mydomain.com in classic mode, is not communicating to google the titles and description I want- it´s simply taking the title and scraping from of the page.. However, after doing a site: search on google, I see it has the home page with the correct meta details at mydomain.com/home but with the portfolio thumbnail layout which I don´t want.

This issue has been posted on the forum as well and we’ll resolve that there. This is just a quick update of your comment so we know where the answer is :) Thanks

Let me start by saying Daisho is an awesome theme. I am looking for a portfolio style theme like yours to use for a blog/magazine site. Can the items shown in the sortable portfolio grid be linked to blog posts so that when an item is clicked the post opens? Can I have multiple portfolios such that the end user can select a portfolio and the grid contents change? Thanks.

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it :)

Sure, thumbnails can link to blog posts or other external URLs. Many people use it exactly this way (actually, only few use it as portfolio).

Multiple portfolios are also supported, each can have different categories and different thumbnails. They can also share some categories.

I’m glad that you like it :) It’s surprising how many people are asking this question. At least one daily :) Yes, there are two ways to do that: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#Localization

When i added “Gallery” in post. One each thumb open in new page with little bigger thumbnail and comment box. Lightbox is not working. ((( Why ?

Flow
Flow Author

If you’re referring to [gallery] shortcode then its support is scheduled to be added in the coming updates. Theme authors have to code this even if this is a part of WordPress. It just doesn’t come with default styling or script.

To have lightbox working it’s enough to use this code: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#prettyPhotoLightbox

Advanced (galleries, videos, Flash etc.): http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/

If it still doesn’t work, please create a support ticket and we’ll be happy to visit your website and assist.

RealFikus Purchased

Yep. Working. Use prettyPhoto plugin and add rel=”Prettyphoto” to [Gallery] shortcode.

Hi, I just bought this template. It is great. I am trying to change the background color (white) of all my portfolio posts/items to a different color.(#3f4432) How can I do it? I already changed the global background color to the one I want, but it only affects the Pages not the Portfolio items. I even tried adding some Custom CSS Code, and no result. The editor under Appearance? If so, how?

I appreciate your help. V

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it :) Portfolio view is not a stand-alone page, it’s just a “lightbox” and thus it doesn’t support background. What supports background is the foundation/underlying page beneath it.

So, by changing background color for portfolio entry, you’re changing background color for the page beneath it.

The selector that you’re looking for is .project-coverslide in style.css around line 800. It has slightly opaque white background set.

Thanks Flow.

On the demo page menu About Us > Shortcodes we found many shortcodes, but you dont tell how to use every one. Exemplo how can i use Accordion?

Flow

I’m sorry for delayed reply! I somehow missed this comment. You’ll find a list of default shortcodes here: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/ – you can install more extensions with plugins – Daisho should fit most of them because of its simple design – black text on the white background.

I hope that helps :) Let me know once you have any other questions.

Hi there, great theme! I would love to see the filterable portfolio gallery as a wordpress plugin. Any plans to do that??

There are no plants to do that but it’s available as a library already: http://isotope.metafizzy.co/ It has really nice features and I would say that it’s well done and complete.

Hi Flow, I liked your theme but I found some problems, in IE7-IE8 I saw isn’t compatible with those versions and go out the pop-up with the incompatible message… Is possible to remove this window? (with some javascript or similar).

Regards CR

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, you can remove that in header.php around line 60. It is compatible with IE9 or newer (and basically all browsers and devices that are supported and updated by their creators).

A list of supported browsers and devices is here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-not-working-in-ie

Ok, I am having some serious damn issues. I don’t know what the hell I’m doing wrong. I watched that video of how you install the theme and it doesn’t seem to work.

So I purchased a domain and hosting service from godaddy.com I installed the stupid wordpress app on godaddy.com I logged into mywebsiteurl.com/wp-admin I went to themes and clicked “upload theme” and tried uploading the Daisho v1.9.2, Daisho v1.9.3 and themeforest-2585124….zip files. NONE of them work. I always get this message:

No data received Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data. Here are some suggestions: Reload this webpage later. Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.

I tried uploading it to the wp-content/themes folder through an ftp client and when i go back to mywebsiteurl.com/wp-admin, it ain’t there for me to activate!

I’m SUPER frustrated cause i’m usually pretty good at any computer stuff but this is just getting ridiculous how much time i’m wasting….

Flow
Flow Author

This requires contacting GoDaddy support (or maybe even it’s related to the browser – it seems to be very popular question in Chrome discussion groups – can you please restart Chrome or try IE, Safari or Firefox?).

Anyway, GoDaddy is responsible for making uploading work. Pre-installation/WordPress issues must be resolved by hosting company and we’ll be happy to assist with post-installation issues (like theme bugs, configuration etc.).

If you need support from our side then please create a support ticket and I can login to your WordPress and check that.

You feel frustrated because it’s out of your control (I too see this error for the first time) but I hope that you’ll get back to yourself soon :) Neither hosting company nor WordPress developers nor theme developers want to annoy anybody on purpose.

Great :) So, from now on all further issues that you encounter (or hopefully not) will be related to the theme and that’s where our support comes in handy. Please create a support ticket each time you notice something worth improving. We’re constantly working on updates.

Hi, Just purchased your theme and am very happy with the customization I could achieve

BUT could you tell me how to preselect the fixed sized grid mode in ajax portfolio instead of variable size (toggle sizes)

reason being because on default display sizes vary and I would like to display fix sized to my customer at least for the first time he sees it

Thanks

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like customization options (actually, this is the main thing that we’d like to improve in the coming updates :) – I think that they can’t be present in the back-end because users can’t preview what they are changing but that’s a longer story).

You’ll find the answer to your question here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

And more precisely it’s here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/front-page-display

Short version:
  • In project-loop.php please move class="toggle-selected" from line 60 to line 72.
  • On line 110 please remove variable-sizes class.

thanks for your answer, I was almost there. what about the element-small class I find in the javascript ? I still encounter one issue, when fixed grid activated by default with above method, first font is BIG BIG and others are fine… I will check this again and let ya know

GOOD WORK anyway

Flow
Flow Author

I’m looking at the source code but can’t find element-small. In the thread that I linked to you’ll find classes for each thumbnail. I’ll need to take a look at your website to answer the question about font.

Feel free to ask questions on the support forum :) I do my best to assist with such changes.

Wanting to make the permalink setting for any portfolio page to say services instead of portfolio. Which file would I need to locate to make this change?

Thanks in advance,

Blake

Flow
Flow Author

You’ll find the answer here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

Registering a post type like ‘portfolio’ requires specifying hard-coded permalink name for it so we chose /portfolio/. This is something that can be changed in template files and the file is: core/post_types/portfolio-post-type.php and the thing to edit: 'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'portfolio').

You also need to re-save [Settings > Permalink] after this change.

Dear Flow, Daisho theme is just amazing! Simple and great!

I am searching for a waordpress theme that will suit my needs for creating a news website concerning design.

So before bying Daisho i would like to know if there are features related to webzines like ad banners, subscriber log-in forms and sidebars. I would like to know if a sidebar could be applied in any of the pages of daisho, including the homepage. Concerning the bilingual feature do i have the opportunity to choose between any two languages? I would prefer to have my website both in English and in Greek

I would be grateful if you could send me some links with the aforementioned features where available either from daisho or from websites that have used daisho as their theme.

The above inquiries would really help me decide for my theme.

Thank you in advance!

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it :)

1) The trial website can answer at least some questions.

2) Sidebars are supported for any page or post. Sidebars support for homepage is coming in v1.9.4. We’re planning to re-design how front page and “page for posts” is handled.

3) The theme is prepared to work with any translation plugin out there but to have language switcher you probably need something more advanced like WPML (it is a paid plugin). If you ever translated any WordPress theme then the process is exactly the same in this case.

4) There are no features related to magazines but since Daisho is just black & white website then most plugins should fit its style very well and such features are often available as plugins.

Please spend some time on browsing various themes and please check what this one has to offer as well. It’s a good idea to spend some time on choosing the correct one because you won’t have to switch to anything else later on and that will just save a bit of time :)

Default-user

Thank you so much for your answers! Do you have any idea about when v1.9.4 is coming out?

Flow
Flow Author

The schedule looks like this:

  • release Konzept update this week
  • WP3.6 release (29 April)
  • Daisho 1.9.4 will follow WP3.6 release so you can expect it in the first two weeks of May
  • Bought between 100 and 499 items
  • Has been a member for 2-3 years

For the Trial it requires a username & password.

Can you please reply with that information, I really like the site, I would like to see if the features and functions are really suiting my needs by means of the Trial.

Thanks

Flow
Flow Author

You should receive username and password via email. You can also restore lost password.

After 14 days the website will be automatically removed and you’ll be able to create a new one using the same email address.

I’m glad that you like it :) The theme is updates every few weeks so you may want to check back every now and then.

HI, can you please let me know how I can add logo to the blog/news page template like all the other pages? Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

There is a copy/paste code to do that here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

It was prepared for 1.9.1 but it should work for 1.9.3 as well. This is going to be simplified to just 1 body class in the future updates. It’s already on our ‘to do’ list.
