One questoin before I purchase this theme. Can I change the order of the portfolio categories (the top menu under portfolio)? Or it has to in alphabetical order?

Sure, you can do that with “Taxonomy Terms Order” plugin – http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes#plugins

Hi Wish to check on when you plan to release update 1.9.4. Great theme – I love it, and keen to keep it the freshest.

Flow
Flow Author

As soon as it’s ready. I’m already preparing 1.9.4 documentation and there are just a few minor things left to be done.

There are also new theme review standards (that are in large part just a reminder to authors what normal WordPress standards look like) and I’m making sure that we meet all of them in this update.

I wish that ThemeForest had some system (some sort of version control system) that would allow buyers to download nightly builds of themes and plugins. We’re doing changes almost every day so you would be able to easily view which files on ThemeForest’s server are already updated and you would be able to update every day :) Bug fixes could be easily delivered in under 24 hours (and not in the nearest major release) thanks to this. I hope that this functionality will appear one day!

thanks for the fast response.

I thought the wordpress>dashio>about >>’one-click’Automatic Updates function would do this.

Anyhow looking forward to it – Keep up the good work!

Flow
Flow Author

One click auto updates serve only full packages and many people often need the next version somewhere in its alpha or beta stage. This is only possible with systems similar to GIT or SVN.

We’re going to remove it because Envato Toolkit does the same thing and it also (a) supports backup, (b) gives you an access to all purchases, (c) requires API keys instead of Item Purchase Codes which you can share with your clients.

Starting from 1.9.4 we’ll bundle Envato Toolkit instead and yes – it will handle that :) (and I hope that it will allow downloading “nightly builds” in the future as well)

Hi – I see Wordpress 3.6 and Daisho 1.9.4 are both released. Is there any special processes to note – apart from backup the current 1.9.3, and then upgrade to 3.6, and then update theme to 1.9.4 (using Envato Toolkit) The current website just continue to work normally with the new upgrade features. Any thing to note? – don’t want to risk any downtime. thanks.

Flow
Flow Author

You can upgrade to WordPress 3.6 safely. That would be the first step. if you’re looking for backup plugins then there’s one on this list: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes#plugins

As for Daisho 1.9.3 -> 1.9.4 shift please:
  • read the updated documentation (at least the parts about menus in “Header” section, “Pages” and “Homepage” because minor changes are there),
  • check the beginning of this thread: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-194 (we for instance changed single letters as menu descriptions in [Appearance > Menus] to CSS classes which has at least a few advantages). Such minor changes will require additional action from you but generally everything should go smoothly.
Default-user

Hi – One more question before I dive into 1.9.4. I have BulletProof Security plug-in installed. Do I need to disable it or put it into default mode – first before upgrading? I’ve already updated to WP3.6 with no probs. thanks for answering all my questions. Cheers.

Flow

I think that this plugin shouldn’t have any impact on updating but it’s always safer to disable it temporarily.

You can rename old theme folder to ‘daisho-backup’ and upload the new version to ‘daisho’ folder. You’ll be able to quickly go back to the previous version if something goes wrong.

Default-user

Thanks – I just read on your forum 1.9.5 coming out this week? Should I wait a few more days before updating from 1.9.3? thanks.

Flow

You can either update to 1.9.4 and then to 1.9.5 or to 1.9.5 straight away. This update will fix a couple of bugs and will add full support for WordPress’s 3.6 new video and audio players (also in portfolio projects).

We will get rid of our [video], [vimeo] and [youtube] shortcodes because I don’t see a reason to keep them if WordPress comes with [embed] shortcode now and new video/audio API.

Can you recommend a snippet of code or plugin that I can use so when visitors click on image thumbnails in the Preview page, they are taken to an external link (preferably one that opens in a new window)?

Thank you.

Hi,

Great theme. Does it support post excerpts in the portfolio grid? And also, can the posts be filtered by popularity and/or newest posts? Thanks

Regards Marcus

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it! You can test it on the trial website.

1) You can set your own description for projects.

2) You can use any WordPress default ordering mechanism on portfolio pages to order thumbnails (date, random, alphabetical, post count etc.).

Marcusvg

Hi,

I am currently testing a version on the trial website. And it is great so far. I would just like to add an audio player below the images in the portfolio. I can do this with a shortcode used in an excerpt. But the issue is that I cannot enable the excerpts for portfolio images.

How would I go about doing this? And can the hover effect be disabled as well? Thanks

Regards Marcus

Flow
Flow Author

You use shortcodes and put any embed code in [Portfolio > Add New > Custom Code Slide]. Excerpts are disabled for portfolios. There is “Description” field instead.

Marcusvg

Will the description field content appear below the images in the portfolio? thanks

Flow
Flow Author

Each image allows you to specify a description. If you need to add custom text between images please use “Custom Code Slide” after each image.

Marcusvg

Can Excerpts be enabled for portfolio posts? Thanks

Flow
Flow Author

What do you mean by that? Excerpt is usually used on archive pages. Portfolios don’t have archives.

Marcusvg

Just like posts support excerpts where I can usually add descriptions or shortcodes. Would’t the custom post type ‘portfolio’ also support it? I just need to add text or short codes below the images on the portfolio page. So instead of displaying the name of the post on hover, it needs to be displayed already below the image, along with a short paragraph on what the post(portfolio item) is about.

Thanks again.

Flow
Flow Author

I see what you mean but it unfortunately doesn’t work this way. I’m afraid that it would be technically difficult to be created because the smallest thumbnails are only 220×150px.

That’s correct, it’s limited to two lines of text to prevent overlapping. You can increase that to at most three lines of text (that’s what we’re going to do in 1.9.4 by default).

Hello,

I quite like this theme and would like to buy it. But it doesn’t seem to work on my windows phone, meaning that it is not responsive in this case. I’m using Windows Phone 7, please see the screenshot.

Or am I wrong?

It will be responsive on those devices that react to the viewport tag.

  • iPhone (device-width) – 320px
  • iPhone (default) – 1024px
  • Android mobile (device-width) – 320px to 480px
  • Android mobile (default) – perhaps around 960px or 1024px but it depends on the screen size
  • Android tablet (default and device-width) – perhaps around 1024px
  • iPad – 1024px
  • Your phone – perhaps it doesn’t react to the viewport tag at this moment and it displays the website in default, “overview” mode. It is likely to change in the future once your system version is updated. Mobile systems are updated every 6 – 12 months and significant improvements are introduced to: Android, iOS, Windows Mobile.

Both “responsive” and “not responsive” modes are alright so in my opinion you can forget about that. Many websites (such as apple.com or themeforest.net itself) disable responsiveness because their website is too complex and it’s used better in normal mode.

My personal preference: not responsive websites with all the features available in normal form.

Default-user

Hi thanks for your quick reply. I am looking for a responsive theme (and you promote yours as being responsive, which is good in my opinion – if I wanted to see a website on a mobile device in its “overview” mode I wouldn’t care about responsiveness too much). Maybe you wanna optimise the theme for Windows Phone, too? Others are working fine, for example http://themeforest.net/item/matrix-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/3215443 So there must be a way to make it work.

Cheers Daniel

Flow
Flow Author

Thanks for your suggestion! I’ll look into that in the nearest theme update.

In the meantime please pick the other theme as it has this done already.

Windows Phone should react to the “viewport” meta tag but some people suggest that tags like “MobileOptimized” should be used instead for Microsoft’s devices. I’m not sure what is that yet but I’ll look into that – http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9236376/windows-phone-viewport-meta-tag Perhaps they will be switching to “viewport” tag anyway.

Hi, thanks a lot, would be great if you could look into it. I’ve just bought the theme :-)

Flow
Flow Author

Alright! Thank you! I already got Microsoft’s SDK 7.1 yesterday and a device to test it on. Please paste the code from the link I sent you in header.php next to the current viewport meta tag: <meta name="MobileOptimized" content="640">

It will be responsive then.

  • As of 1.9.3 it will go between lines 22 and 23.
  • In 1.9.4 that I’m going to upload this week this will go on line 6 in header.php.

P.S.
I know that ‘responsiveness’ is a recent trend but objectively it’s neither better nor worse than a normal version of a website. Both have advantages and disadvantages and it’s best to pick the option that will work better for your visitors.

Thanks for the great support! In theory it is working fine. There are still a few issues though. The navigation icons at the very top aren’t displayed, and there is lots of white space surrounding the images: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8544365@N02/9394192488/ Also when you are on any one of the project pages texts and buttons etc. overlap: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8544365@N02/9394232622/

Thanks for your comments! I uploaded Daisho 1.9.4 yesterday. It has a new mobile mode that should be more suitable for less common browsers, system, screen sizes and devices.

In other words, previously iOS and Android were well supported and now iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Opera Mobile and other less known browsers should be supported much better. I didn’t insert <meta name="MobileOptimized" content="320"> tag in the end because the newest default WordPress theme – Twenty Thirteen – didn’t insert it either. I’m trying to stick to the standards and default configuration in important areas as much as possible. You can add that in your child theme or via plugins (any plugins that add meta tags to the <head> section – like SEO plugins).

Let me know what do you think!

Default-user

Great, thanks a lot! Will test it soon and then let you know how it is working. Cheers Daniel

Flow

Alright! I think that the current mobile mode (1.9.4) should be compatible with 99.99% of mobile devices. Previous one was unfortunately compatible with only 90 – 95% of devices, resolutions and systems. We had to replace it with something simpler.

The current one will probably stay this way forever. If something doesn’t work in it then it’s most likely easy to be adjusted and we’ll do that if necessary.

If you have any questions, suggestions or bugs to report please create a support ticket and we’ll be able to track everything that you report more efficiently. Thanks!

Hi,

I love this theme and am looking into purchasing I just wanted to check one thing first.

On a portfolio item page am I able to make the images as a slideshow not just static images below one another? As I will be displaying websites as the portfolio item I want to flick through as a slideshow to each webpage image I add in.

Thanks :)

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it! :)

Currently images can be displayed only one below another and I think that it will stay this way permanently.

I’m sure that there are other themes on ThemeForest that have thumbnails and slideshow after you click on one. For instance Konzept works this way and it has a white skin version too: http://themeforest.net/item/konzept-fullscreen-portfolio-wordpress-theme/2383907

Nonetheless, please note that the simpler websites are usually better. They are likely to have better compatibility with all current and future devices and systems.

You can test all the features of Daisho on the trial website.

Let me know if you need more information about that!

Default-user

Thanks the trial website was great to work on and I have now purchased the theme. What is the shortcode for the tables?

Default-user

Also how do you add the icons to new pages you add to the menu?

Default-user

I am using the classic view. How do I get the three columns and text at the top to appear above the slider. I have it set to latest posts instead of static page. The link to my website is here http://114.111.156.132/~websos/

Default-user

Sorry my last question is how do I edit the links on the social media icons in the footer?

Flow
Flow Author

Great and thank you!

1) Tables can be created with standard HTML. At this moment WordPress’s editor doesn’t allow users to create them and they are generally rarely used. You’ll find table generators on the Internet if you need them – http://html-tables.com/

2) This should help: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#menus

3) The static content can only appear below the slider. You can disable the slider if you need it to be placed higher or you can leverage “Welcome Text” area to put some static content above the slideshow.

4) Please see “Footer 3” here – http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#footer

I hope that helps! Let me know if you need more information about anything from me!

Default-user

Thanks for answering all those questions. With the tables I was referring to the pricing tables you have listed on this shortcode page of your live demo under accordion. http://devatic.com/?theme=Daisho This is one of the reasons I purchased this theme for these pricing tables. How do I make these?

In the portfolio items. How do I remove the sharing buttons?

I have added shortcodes for toggles into pages and the icon appears in the blue as does it other places when I hover. How do I change this blue elsewhere to another colour? I have successfully changed it through the styling panel for the menu hover colour but can’t find where everything else is?

Thanks again for your help!

Flow
Flow Author

1) We didn’t place pricing tables there, I think that you’ve seen them in another theme. But that doesn’t matter because technically all themes are able to support pricing tables.

Shortcodes that generate pricing tables aren’t allowed as a part of themes according to the new ThemeForest standards. They should be added with plugins.

For 1.9.4 we’re testing such plugins and Symple Shortcodes plugin will be bundled with Daisho to meet the new requirements. It allows you to create pricing tables out of the box with a nice style that matches Daisho: http://wpexplorer-demos.com/symple-shortcodes/ (also, the grid system matches Daisho perfectly).

2) Please try http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes – “Project View – hide sharing icons”

3) In /modules/shortcode-jquery-ui/. In Daisho 1.9.4 we’re going to change that to gray color in both states. I think that flat and subtle styles look better for the majority of projects that this theme is used for.

Let me know if you need more information about anything from me!

Default-user

Thanks for the tables. I have downloaded the plugin and am going to give it a try. I have added links into the portfolio posts that say visit website but when clicked on they link back to the home page of the site there on? Do you know why this is?

THanks

Flow
Flow Author

I can check those links for you if you’d like me to. Any HTML and links are allowed in portfolio projects. You need to use http:// prefix to make links work. Also, if you specify a location that doesn’t exist then it will load your homepage.

Default-user

I didn’t have the http:// in front of the URL’s. Whoops! Thanks they work great now. I have added in the pricing tables to this page http://114.111.156.132/~websos/pricing/ and the lines in the tables are aligning to the right with a gap on the left. Do you know why this could be?

Flow
Flow Author

They don’t reset padding but only margin. In your child theme please add:

.symple-pricing-table .symple-pricing-content ul { padding: 0 !important; }

We’ll use these pricing tables in 1.9.4. We’ll probably only adjust their style slightly.

Default-user

I have never worked with a child theme before. How does this work? THanks

Default-user

Sorry I have another question. I have started adding posts to my blog. With this page http://114.111.156.132/~websos/blog/blog-post_example-2/ how do I reduce the space between the paragraphs. These spaces are a bit too big. Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

Child themes are fortunately simple and you’ll find out how to use them in 5 minutes: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

Spacing between paragraphs has been reduced in v1.9.4 (released yesterday). In style.css you can reduce 3em to 2em here: p { margin: 0 0 3em 0; }. Indeed, I think that 2em or 1.5em for smaller fonts is visually the best.

Default-user

Thanks for that. I have used the envato toolkit to do the update to 1.9.4 and I received this error line after pressing update. Fatal error: Call to undefined method Envato_Backup::database_dump_filename() in /home/websos/public_html/wp-content/plugins/envato-wordpress-toolkit-master/includes/class-envato-backup.php on line 451

How can I do the update as I keep getting this issue?

Thanks!

Default-user

Hi, the above issue has been fixed. I have a few more issues below:

1. As I have now installed the new update my portfolio page has changed. I am now using the portfolio template but can’t get the heading and description as per the default template. How do I add the heading and description to the portfolio page instead of the welcome text? http://114.111.156.132/~websos/portfolio/

2. I have installed the child theme you have made available and uploaded it to the themes. How do I make the child theme activated along with the parent theme as you can only activate one theme at a time?

3. I want to use the child theme to change the global colour #00A4A7. As the child theme doesn’t have the code to change how do I do this?

Thanks :)

Flow

1) In template-portfolio.php you can remove /* before ”// Optional Page Header” comment and place it above ”// Optional Page Content” comment. I think that it will enable title and description for this page. This page template wasn’t meant to have that by design, that’s why it’s disabled. I doubt that we will enable this. All users would have the page title visible by default then.

2) You can activate the child theme. It will inherit everything from the parent theme. The parent theme needs to be named ‘daisho’. More: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

3) In your child theme you can overwrite original styles. This means that you’ll have to look for ”#00A4A7” in original style.css using Notepad++ or other text editor and copy each selector to your child theme’s style.css (preferably in the same order).

Example:
  • The first occurrence of ”#00A4A7” string in style.css is found on line 94 and it looks like this: a { color: #00A4A7; text-decoration: none; }
  • You can put the following in your child theme’s style.css to overwrite only the color: a { color: blue; }
Default-user

Thanks for all your help once more. For the slider on the homepage can you make this slide one slide to another without having to click the arrows? I didn’t realise it didn’t slide through automatically until now. Would be great if it could! Thanks

Flow

In slideshow.php you can set var autoplayTime = false; to a number of milliseconds after which it should slide. For instance 12000 would be 12 seconds.

Default-user

Thanks so much that worked great!

Default-user

Hi, I just have a question about the slider. Are you somehow able to have a background image instead of a background colour?

Thanks

Default-user

Also the image is going up too high for some reason and cutting off? see here first slide this is just a rough test that is why the image isnt cut properly yet http://114.111.156.132/~websos/

Flow

At this moment no but I’m hoping to replace this slideshow with some slideshow solution from CodeCanyon later this year. There are great scripts out there recently. You may try LayerSlider, RoyalSlider or Slider Revolution instead. I’m pretty sure that we’ll start using one or more of these for our themes but I’m yet to test them all and see which one meets our idea the best.

Default-user

Ok that’s great thanks. If I was to install slider revolution which I have used before will this just overide the slideshow?

Will this still be responsive then?

Flow

It will not override it but you’ll have two slideshows. You can disable our one in [Pages > Homepage] if it’s set to “Classic Homepage Template”. Then you can insert the other one as a content of that page if it supports shortcodes.

It will be restricted to 1120px but you can prevent that using one of the following two methods:

  • Write it like: < /div>[slideshow's shortcode]<d iv class="site-content clearfix"> (ThemeForest strips the code, please use our support forum instead to get the code – the example ago should be pasted without two spaces).
  • Duplicate and ppen up template-classic.php in your child theme. Before the following comment // Optional static page content you’ll be able to insert: echo do_shortcode('[slideshow shortcode]');.

Yes, it will be responsive. Please refer to the slideshow’s documentation to find out how to insert this into a theme. I’m just guessing that above two methods are valid because they are the most common.

Default-user

Hi. I have stuck with using the slider that you included in your theme and it is working well except when viewed on the ipad. It doesnt look like how it is on your demo on the ipad.

The slider doesnt fit into the screen. Do you know how I can fix this? as this is a problem when showing clients the site via the ipad.

Also the three boxes under the slider view one under the other on the ipad can they view next to each other? Also the recent projects dont show in one line either?

Your help would be appreciated thanks :)

Flow

Sure, it would be great if you could create a support ticket – we’ll need your website address and someone will test that on an iPad and reply with solution :)

Default-user

Thanks I have submitted a ticket. I fixed the slider so it is just the other two issues.

Could you please help me?

Flow
Flow Author

So, you installed 1.9.3 for the first time and it didn’t appear? This button appears only if you haven’t used it before and if you haven’t skipped setup. It must appear on a fresh WordPress installation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS9ZC8nqOkY

If this is a fresh WordPress installation and you don’t have any content yet please go to [Daisho > About] and hit “Clean Database”. It will remove a couple of theme settings and “Install Demo” should appear again.

If “Install Demo” button won’t appear at all then:

It’s possible in the 40+ pages of comments this has been answered…I looked through a few. This theme may work perfectly for my needs and I have a couple pre-sale questions if you don’t mind:

1. When hovering over the squares, can two images be used – one for the pre-mouseover and one for the mouseover? This would be two JPG’s, etc.

2. Can the squares not have links associated with them? I’m just interested in the mouseover effect and display two images.

Thanks! Nice work on this one.

Flow
Flow Author

1) No. The place of modification is project-loop.php. This is there WP Query is located and where thumbnails are generated. You can add there another image on top of the current one and then just style it to appear on mouse over. Time required: 30 – 60 minutes. I recommend that you do that once we release 1.9.4. It’s going to simplify and clean the code a little bit.

2) Yes, if you use javascript:void(null); as an “External Link”.

Let me know if you need more information about that! I’m glad that you like the theme!

Hi. How can I change the order of the portfolio Project ?

Thank you,

By default they are ordered by date. You can change their publication dates to reorder them and that’s recommended because you’ll keep the same order in your admin panel.

You can also change their order in [Pages > (your portfolio page)]. All WordPress’s order methods are supported.

On the left hand side, above the portfolio there’s an option to resize the portfolio (make all the tiles the same size). How do I delete this? I think it’s #toggle-sizes but I need specifics (which file, which lines to delete and what do I replace the deleted lines with). I want to keep the category filter, just not the resize option.

Hey guys I have purposely stored up a few questions and would be grateful for your support. 1. I have used a .png for the slider that is almost full width for the web but doesn’t resize for mobile platform? Is there anyway this can be done or is there an optimum size for all? 2. Can I make the blog page and content as a slider page template? 3. The Contact Us page doesn’t show the contact form and instead shows [contact-form-7 id=”2191” title=”Contact form 1”]. I have downloaded the contact form plug in. Where am I going wrong here? Thanks in advance, lee

Hello! Here are the answers:

1) Can I take a look at your website? I’ll be able to answer this question then.

2) I’m not sure if I understand but if you show me an example of what are you looking for then I should be able to give you some advice. Generally blog posts are listed like this: http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/blog/ and you can load these posts somewhere else (like in the slider) but I can’t tell you more at this moment, that depends on the details.

3) All you need is Contact Form 7 plugin installed and activated. Please also make sure that [Admin Panel > Contact] has this contact form ID. You can compare it to the trial website and copy an example form.

To answer 1 and 2 I’ll need more information. Let me know!

Hey,

Whats new in 1.9.4 version you updated today? This link doesn’t list the 1.9.4 version.. http://bit.ly/PYjWQU

thanks

Default-user

Also, what’s the easiest way to upgrade from 1.9.3 to the newest one?

Flow

This one does: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-194

You can check the demo, it has been updated: http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/ (visually it’s mainly new mobile mode, bolder fonts, removal of some style options for some shortcodes, added page refresh for “Classic Homepage” thumbnails etc.).

Technically it’s a big step forward (it’s probably the last update ever for some modules that are already done right). It might be a good idea to check it on the trial website first before updating because admin panel is now simpler as well – http://trial.devatic.com/

Let me know if you need any further information about that! :)

Default-user

So, how do I upgrade?

Flow

You’ll find instructions at the top of the thread above. Everything should go smoothly expect minor changes that are listed there.

Default-user

I installed the upgrade using the Envato Toolkit plugin but now the “Portfolio” items don’t show up on the site. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Flow

1) Are they present in [Admin Panel > Portfolio]? 2) Do you have a portfolio page in [Admin Panel > Pages]? 3) Please also check [Settings > Reading] – you can set your portfolio page to be the homepage there.

What shows up instead? Please create a support ticket if you’d like me to take a look at that. I’m certain that only a minor change is necessary in your admin panel to make it work. This update doesn’t change much to the portfolio.

We just released 1.9.4. The scope of 2.0 is not yet defined but it will rather be focused on shortcodes/new features/content creation.

May I know what features are you looking forward to?

Before I purchase:

1. How many categories can I have for the portfolio filter? 2. Can I have multiple portfolio pages? 3. Are forms other than the Contact Form included?

Thanks!!

Flow

You can test all that on the trial website.

1) At this moment it’s best to have 5 – 6 with not too long names. That’s optimal number also for visitors.

2) Yes.

3) This theme comes with “Contact Form 7” plugin. You can create as many forms as you like and embed them with shortcodes on pages or in posts.

Hi Flow, thanks for this really great “Daisho” theme. I finished the German version of our site now – maybe you remember the picture idea (www.visual-bastarts.com) and I will start the translation for an English version very soon. If you like it, feel free to add it to our showcase, if not – not. So or so – thank you so much for your great work! I think I will purchase it again for another site. So should the force be with you… ;-) and I will check out the Daisho 1.9.4 theme. Best from Berlin Alex

Flow

Yes, I remember your website well :) It’s going to be a pleasure to have it listed there! You’ve got really nice ideas! I just added it there, thank you so much for you link!

As for Daisho 1.9.4 it’s technically a lot better than its predecessors but I moved/removed/simplified many options so it’s a good idea to reread the documentation and test that on the trial website before updating. If you’ll have any questions, let me know!

It’s a honor for me to be part of your showcase! I will check out the trial before an update. Thanks & keep on codin’... ;-)

Hi! Firstly, thank you for your great support. I’ve been able to implement all of your advice so far and it’s been great! A couple of questions:

1. How can I centralise the nav menu? At the moment it’s on the right, I’d like for it to be in the center.

2. On the portfolio page, can I centralise the category list which is above the tiles? At the moment it’s on the right, I’d like for it to be in the middle.

3. How do I add a search bar that works to the site? No search bar plugins work. Is this because search is missing from the site? I really need customers to be able to search the entire site, including portfolio items. Please let me know how I can achieve this.

Many thanks and I look forward to your response.

One more thing. How do I get a portfolio tile page with only one category showing on it? Thanks!

Flow

1) That requires an custom code. You can enable our center menu feature for all resolutions by changing @media (max-width: 950px) { from line 690 in style.css to something like @media (max-width: 9999px) { (you can get rid of that @media query altogether as well and leave only its content).

2) That also requires custom code and attention of a developer that can do that for you and test that for you on various devices, screen sizes, systems and resolutions. Each change requires such testing. It is as simple as this: #options ul { margin: 0 auto; display: table; } in /wp-content/themes/daisho/modules/library-isotope/portfolio.css on line 213 but I didn’t test that everywhere.

3) You can add search widget to the footer in [Appearance > Widgets]. You can also add that to the sidebar. In /core/search.php you can get rid of the filter that excludes ‘page’ post type from search. In /core/post-types/portfolio-post-type.php you can make portfolio searchable – http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_post_type#Arguments (exclude_from_search needs to be set to false).

I think that projects and pages are visible to everyone and are available within one click so search should exclude them. Our search function searches only in ‘post’ post type because that’s the only place of the website where users are likely to have more content that is suitable for that. I think that it’s done right this way – that’s what visitors expect.

Thanks Flow! How about the final question? I want separate pages with each category on each page. So, one whole page of category A tiles, another page with category B tiles and another with category C tiles. I’m using version 1.9.3 and don’t want to upgrade as I’ve changed some files. Thanks!

Flow

You can create “Portfolio A”, “Portfolio B” and “Portfolio C” pages in [Admin Panel > Pages > Add New]. If all three are set to “Portfolio Template” then you’ll find “Exclude/Include Categories” box in [Pages > Portfolio A/B/C]. You can exclude or include certain categories to be displayed there.

Hey Guys, Just wanted to say that Daisho is such an ace theme. Much easier and more intuitive than any other templates i’ve used on themeforest previously. I would thoroughly recommend it.

That said I do have one slight problem, Can you help me with changing the hover over colour on the portfolio categories, social icons and view portfolio button on front page. Is this a php file amend and if so can you paste the code line here.

Thanks in advance, Lee

Flow

Thank you for your kind words and I’m happy that you like it! :)

You’ll find code examples for that here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

Let me know if you need more information about that!

When switching between the visual and text modes in pages – content seems to loose styling (paragraphs/breaks ect) . Any reason why this happens?

Flow

Paragraphs, line breaks and headings won’t change their positions or formatting but usage of plain HTML like columns from here – http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#gridSystem instead of shortcode version may and will do that. WordPress’s visual editor is not able to work with that. It is able to work with elements that you see in the kitchen sink – headings, paragraphs, preformatted text, columns shortcode, pricing tables and other such things.

Everything in that editor will work like in the default WordPress theme. We don’t modify this place in the theme files in any way.

Sure, you’ll find all three here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

Files to edit: style.css, /modules/library-isotope/portfolio.css.

Default-user

thanks guys, however the file path for the portfolio.css doesn’t exist in the /modules/library-isotope/ path on my server. There is a style .css file in here which isn’t in the original theme folder…Any clues?

Flow

Portfolio.css is named like that since 1.9.3 or 1.9.4. Before it was named style.css.

You’ll either find the styles that you’re looking for in main style.css or in /modules/isotope/style.css.

Default-user

ok thanks for that. Do I need to edit both then?

Flow

You either have /modules/isotope/style.css or /modules/isotope/portfolio.css.

The main style.css might have contained some style for portfolio in 1.9.3 so yes – you may need to edit main style.css and /modules/isotope/style.css.
