Hi, great theme! I’m struggling to create my own icons. I gather I have to make a new font. What program will allow me to go from Illustrator graphics to be able to export a all those same file formats (.ttf .eot .svg .woff)?

Flow

I’m glad that you like the theme!

I’m afraid that generating your own font files is not recommended. It’s best to use http://www.fontsquirrel.com/ or http://www.google.com/fonts/ to download fonts you need. They set standards for their files and thanks to this font sizes, line heights and alignment are consistent and match other files well. This is often not the case with hand-made files.

I bet there are tools to help you create all font extensions but I haven’t done this myself before yet: http://fontface.codeandmore.com/

2. are background photos possible?

3. is it possible to play videos in the tiles?

4. can i move the social button from the bottom to the top?

thanks best conte

1) You can put a page there with any content (text, images, maybe forms). It’s enough to pick a page under [Daisho > General > Info Box]. You may be interested in visiting the trial website and creating test account to see back-end.

2) Yes. Globally or per-page/per-post.

3) Yes, HTML5 videos are supported but they are not recommended due to not very nice iOS and Android compatibility (continuous playing in not available in them) and generally large size of video clips. It’s much better to use animated GIF or SVG and you’ll achieve the same effect. Similar question is present here: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#portfolio-faq

4) Top (which is header) doesn’t have any widget area. A tutorial on how to add one: http://support.forcg.com/topic/possible-to-add-a-widgetized-sidebar-to-header (you can register with dummy item purchase code if you’d like to take a look but our trial website won’t let you edit the code to test it).

4a) It is recommended to use plugins to add icons to posts and pages. You can also add them to sidebars if footer isn’t satisfactory for that.

I hope that helps :) Feel free to ask more questions before purchase if you wish.

Hi there,

since installing the theme, i have not been able to “drag and drop” menus to re-order them and also cannot drag widgets across.

Can you help or suggest anything I can do?

Flow

Is it v1.9.3 + WordPress 3.5.1? Versions from December 2012 and earlier (before WP3.5 came out) will have this issue with the newest WordPress.

WordPress 3.5 updated all major libraries like jQuery at the end of 2012 and we followed this change and in 1.9.1 update we updated our scripts as well to remain compatible.

Hi, your theme is great! I am delighted with my web :-) Only I have a little problem … When I want to share a particular image of the portfolio, either from the same web or by the URL in a social network, it only recognize the main images, not all. Can I do something thereon?

Thank you,

Mary Caballer

Flow

I happy that you like the theme :)

This is on a list of things that we will improve in 1.9.4 (coming after WP3.6 is released, after 20 May).

From version 1.0 to 1.9.1 it was working fine but then in 1.9.2 and 1.9.3 we gave up on having PHP load projects and that’s why sharing services can’t find images (because they are added later on and not on page load when you access a project directly). All posts and pages are shared normally but not portfolio projects since they are popup windows and not real pages.

This is going to be sorted out around 30 May 2013 in 1.9.4. If you need earlier assistance please create a support ticket and we’ll be happy to assist. Even in current 1.9.3 you can make it work if you specify a meta tags for social services like seen here: http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/og/object?q=http%3A%2F%2Fthemes.devatic.com%2Fdaisho%2Fportfolio%2Ffortaleza-2020%2F

I’m sorry for this mistake! We’re doing our best to fix that as soon as possible and make the theme serve you better.

VERY nice :D

could you direct me to where in the theme files I could add a loop section(s) / functions that will allow me to use content created through the infamous visual composer plugin?

I’ve had a little success poking at it, but i figure you’d know better than anyone :)

thanks in advance -this theme is awesome :D

Flow

I’m glad that you like the theme :)

If you need assistance with plugin integration please create a support ticket and we’ll be happy to visit your website and assist. I can help you with that but to do it in the most effective way it’s best if I had at least WP admin panel access.

We have 1.9.4, 1.9.5 and 2.0 Daisho updates scheduled (each every 30 days) and integrating a tool similar to visual composer is on our list of priorities.

Default-user

Great :) for some reason the forum is not responding and cant open a ticket, a quick one http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/grid-system/ towards half the page downwards, the page background turns gradient grey:) does this mean that we can customize pages sections with colors or background images?

Flow

Perhaps it was temporary. The forum should be available 24/7/365 with little downtime.

does this mean that we can customize pages sections with colors or background images?
Technically it’s already prepared for that. However, there are no user-friendly tools to do that yet. You can use inline style to create something like that – background colors and images are allowed.

This is very simple so we can provide you code to use on the forum. I hope that it works for you now :)

i looked at the admin panel and can not figure out how to enable the touch controls like swipe for devices.

Flow

Where would you like to enable them? For which component?

Default-user

when you open a portfolio item, i’d like to use click drag to swipe to the next and previous items, instead of using the arrows. would be good to enable it for scrolling long pages if the user wants, instead of using the scroll bar.

Flow

I see what you mean. This would require an additional script that would allow you to add some more actions to project view.

Since portfolio projects can consist of Vimeo, YouTube and other media that prevent swipe from working I would consider if it’s going to work fine on all nowadays devices and systems like iOS and Android.

Generally the simplest things maintain the best compatibility with all browsers, systems and devices. That’s why we usually steer clear from complex solutions.

If you need further advice I suggest describing your idea to the developers and they will help you with that. They need to know what exactly should happen when and they can prepare a more detailed report of advantages, drawbacks and additional scripts required to make it happen.

Default-user

thanks, i just bring it up because in the description of the theme it says that it supports all input options including touch. but i guess that is no accurate, as i could not find a setting to turn the touch compatibility on.

Flow

It supports touch devices very well and the page is optimized for vertical scrolling. Horizontal scrolling for touch devices can be enabled for:

  • Classic Homepage slideshow
  • Since 1.9.4 it will also go to Services/Our Team slider as an option (disabled by default)

Project view has arrows instead of swipe left/right as they seem to be more intuitive and better for user experience.

Anyway, that’s why the trial website is available :) You can test everything on WPMU 3.5.1 thanks to this.

Hi! I use daisho 1.9.1 and I have one question…In a single-portfolio page.. when I have contents that fit in one page there is the possibility of scrolling down while there is no need for this..as a result the user sees as he scrolls down a blank page..How can I make the scroll to somehow “fit” to the content?

Thanks :)

Flow

This wasn’t resolved even in current 1.9.3 and I think that we’ll leave it this way.

Please check the question “Q: Can I reduce bottom empty space in project view on iPhone?” – http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes – you’ll find a solution there.

In fact this behavior is technically the correct one although visually it may leave some blank space. Attempts to change this have two main drawbacks:

  • If we reduced that space then whatever is beneath the project would be cut in the middle,
  • And lastly, “compact header” is floating over the content so if it has position: fixed; then you can’t put a scrollbar over it (unless it’s a scrollbar attached to the body or html tags and not the project view).

Hi really cool theme and freat work, one of the best i have purchased on themeforest to date.

One question though. The interface is a bit different to what I am used to tho and I am struggling to find where to edit the following: Menu icons? I have created a new page and added it to the menu bar but it has no icon. Where can i introduce my own and edit existing icons? Thanks in advance Lee

Flow

I’m glad that you like it! :)

This should be a good starting point: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#menus

And if you’d like to add your own icons then you’ll find more information about it here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes (see “Menu” section).

G’day,

Great theme.

I guess my question is, is it possible to have Vimeo links within grids, within Tabs?

[video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=13795716 width=640 height=409 anchor=”http://www.missingbitsproductions.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/vidscreen.jpg”]

The Tabs and Columns work perfect, but the Vimeo code displays as text in live view.

Cheers

Flow

Hello and thanks!

Yes, you can use Vimeo anywhere including: grid columns, tabs, toggles, accordion, portfolio, posts, pages, excerpts on post listing pages etc.

You can either use Vimeo’s shortcode: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#vimeoVideos which will produce a code that maintains 16:9 pixel aspect ratio or you can copy embed code directly from vimeo.com. Both should work.

You’ll find icon maps in the respective parts of the documentation:

Hello!

When I do the another font “main menu” by typography plugin I lose the icon >>>

Please help me

Please create a support ticket and we’ll be happy to visit your website and assist. I’ll need your URL to see what have you tried already. The selector that you’d like to use is probably: .flow_smart_menu li a span:last-child. The first child in this container is an icon.

Hi does this come with an importable xml file so it looks like the demo?

Thanks

Yes, XML is there and there is also auto-installation button that will import also: sidebars, footer, menus, WP settings besides just pages, posts, projects. Since 1.9.3 installation looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS9ZC8nqOkY

hi, theme is awesome. is it possible to add anchor tag to portfolio images section. http://devatic.com/?theme=Daisho i want the image navigation like the below example http://bvd.se/ingelsta-shopping/ click on any image
Flow

I’m glad that you like it :)

This is indeed interesting behavior and we thought about something similar at first. But then we came to conclusion that a lot of people think of it as of a standard page and that the majority would be more comfortable with just standard images without additional scripts/actions attached to them.

This is possible with custom modification (short and easy one, something that wouldn’t take more than 30 – 60 minutes to be completed).

Default-user

can you give idea where we need to do custom modification in your theme ?? i have seen portfolio section from dashboard but I didn’t get anchor tag option.

Flow

It’s best to either add additional scripts to project-script.php (in this case probably to bringPortfolio(id); function which initializes a new project) or to wp_footer(); like most plugins do.

Default-user

ohh thanx i will try.

Default-user

i tried, not getting portfolio click scroll effect like http://bvd.se/ingelsta-shopping/. can you please try for me and give me theme url then i will buy that theme.

Flow

This is a subject to custom modification that would take 30 minutes at the very least. We are unfortunately not able to do individual custom modifications to items but three third party developers on our support forum will be able to help you. They will probably tell you that this is going to take 1 hour and they will charge $25 or $50 for such modification (their hourly rate is $50/h and the value of such modification is probably around that).

If you’d like to talk with them before purchase and discuss pricing or other details please email me to get dummy item purchase code that will enable you to post topics in that forum.

Hey guys I am loving the theme.

Quick question. When I share a link to my site on facebook I would like it to always come up with my logo as the thumbnail next to it. I can see the custom code area on the page edit screen and I have placed this code <meta property=”og:image” content=”http://amonggiants.com.au/Among-Giants-Icon.jpg” /> but it doesn’t seem to work consistently. Does this need to be added to every page?

I can’t get it to display when I link to the index page www.amonggiants.com.au

Any help would be great.

Cheers

Flow

I’m happy that you like the theme :)

Yes, tools such as “All in One SEO Pack” and “Yoast SEO” allow you to use The Open Graph protocol – protocol invented by Facebook to specify your own image everywhere.

Tough luck, not all pages have their IDs in WordPress and such plugins can’t show their full potential easily because of this. Pages that don’t have IDs include: homepage, archives, search, 404 and more. If they don’t have an ID then it requires additional logic to place such tags successfully in the head of the document for them (some plugins do this, some don’t).

To do what you’re looking for consistently everywhere it’s best to place the meta tag that you mentioned directly in header.php – this way it will not be skipped anywhere.

I hope that this will help! If you need someone to take a look at it please create a support ticket and we’ll be happy to visit your website and assist.

Hi

Is it possible to have pages that show only certain categories of the portfolio.

EG, if we had portfolio categories for videos and photos. Could we have a page that only opened up all the portfolio items under the “videos” category.

It automatically sorts them on the portfolio page, but is it possible to have them open in a new page.

Thanks

Flow

Yes.

Good Day, Great theme. Can you tell me how to embed a swf into the portfolio. I tried doing it like how i do with the pictures but it doesn’t work.

Thanks in advance.

Flow

Hello, I’m glad that you like the theme :)

There is “Custom Code” slide available – this one enables you to do that. I have tested it with Flash only once for one person on the forum so if you’d like me to take a look at your website as well please create a support ticket.

It was possible to add SWF files and the person that didn’t manage to do it was pasting the wrong code that didn’t work even in a blank HTML document. So, as the first step I would check that in test.html document first. Websites like this may be useful: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_object.asp

Hi! I have finished my site and the theme looks fantastic! I am very happy with it. The only thing is lately I am receiving hundreds of spam comments. Is there a way to use CAPTCHA on the comments section? Thanks

Flow

I’m glad that you like the theme :)

We receive SPAM on demo websites as well. I batch delete all unapproved comments every few months. You can try this plugin as the first step – http://wordpress.org/plugins/akismet/ – it worked well for me.

As the second step, maybe something like this – http://wordpress.org/plugins/si-captcha-for-wordpress/screenshots/

Comments are WordPress component so I believe that you’ll find plugins for exactly this purpose. They should work with Daisho. It looks like even official WordPress documentation has something to say about this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Combating_Comment_Spam

Hi. I have problems with the icons on the main manu.

They are not working in firefox. Check it out: http://www.cloudnova.it/

it is working well with the other browsers.

Plus, in the google serp a letter (the one that says which icon to show) is shown before the word Chi Siamo (“who we are”). If you look for Cloudnova in google it comes out fChi Siamo (that f is the instruction containing the icon)

why is that happening? how do we fix this?

thanks

Flow

1) The server that you’re using sends TTF files as plain text and not as TTF files. Please email the server administrator and let them know to set correct headers for TTF files. This indicates why it happens in Firefox only (a list of browsers and font files they use – http://www.miltonbayer.com/font-face/ ). More about @font-face issues that can happen in “Menu” section: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

2) Icons are technically letters, it’s very common practice to pack icons into font files nowadays. This has this drawback.

  • In 1.9.4 (scheduled at the beginning of June 2013) we’re planning to solve this issue by using CSS pseudo selector – Google will not notice this and it will not display as well. Schedule: http://support.forcg.com/topic/roadmap
  • If you can’t wait I recommend “All In One SEO Pack” or “Yoast SEO” to set proper SEO description for each page. This would be recommended anyway because some pages (like portfolio) don’t have much text for search engines by default and you may find it useful to set your own description.

Please let me know if you need more information about anything!

Hey, How do you set the portfolio default view to fixed item sizes? currently it defaults to masonry of various sizes, but there is a button to switch to fixed size, how do i make so that it defaults to fixed size behavior on page load? Thanks.
